Vermonters Offer Solidarity To Zapatista Rebels

On December 31st, 2005, I drove seven hours outside of the city of San Cristobal, deep within the Chiapas mountains into EZLN held territory. The remote village of La Garrucha (lying at the far end of two hours of rugged dirt roads) was the site of a large Zapatista New Years Eve celebration complete with music, dancing, and political speakers. There, several thousand rebels mingled with two hundred or so foreign supporters. Among those supporters, I met seven people with Vermont ties. Their reasons for being there and supporting the Zapatista struggle were diverse; some described themselves as revolutionaries and anarchists who support the armed struggle, others as liberal Ralf Nader supporters. What they all held in common was the belief that the Zapatista cause is fundamentally a just one, that it is grounded in democracy, and that the struggle in Chiapas has ramifications well beyond these few isolated villages.

Remembering the Spanish Civil War : Anarchist Veteran George Sossenko to speak in Montreal

70 years after the legendary revolutionary struggle that took place in Spain in the late 30’s, George Sossenko, a veteran of the anarchist militias in the Spanish Civil War, will present his historical experience as a member of the International Brigades and the Durruti Column and will analyze the enormous challenges that occurred in the fight against fascism in the context of a social revolution.

Especifismo: The Anarchist Praxis of Building Popular Movements and Revolutionary Organization in South America

(this is the revised version)Throughout the world anarchist involvement within mass movements as well the development of specifically anarchist organizations is on the upsurge. This trend is helping anarchism regain legitimacy as a dynamic political force within movements and in this light, Especifismo, a concept born out of nearly 50 years of anarchist experiences in South America, is gaining currency world-wide. Though many anarchists may be familiar with many of Especifismo’s ideas, it should be defined as an original contribution to anarchist thought and practice.

COMMUNIQUÉ DE L'AGECVM

1er mai : les étudiant-e-s du Vieux-Montréal contre les lois "matraques" du gouvernement Charest - Dans le cadre de la journée internationale des travailleurs et travailleuses

Le 1er mai au Québec : 100 ans de luttes!

L’année 2006 marque le centième anniversaire du 1er mai au Québec. En effet, c’est à Montréal, en 1906, que des travailleuses et des travailleurs soulignent pour la première fois cette journée en défilant dans les rues du centre-ville. L’initiative de cette manifestation revient à un groupe d’inspiration anarchiste, le cercle « Aide Mutuelle », composé principalement de travailleurs et de travailleuses d’origine juive, mais aussi de quelques immigrants irlandais. Pendant plusieurs mois, ils/elles planifient cette action minutieusement. Pourtant, celle-ci failli ne pas avoir lieu. Les ouvriers et ouvrières d'origine juive craignent que leurs camarades francophones et anglophones ne se désistent à la dernière minute en les laissant manifester seul-e-s dans les rues de Montréal. C'est finalement un membre du cercle « Aide Mutuelle », le poète Jack Dorman, qui servit de pont entre les différents groupes linguistiques, permettant à chacun d'eux de compter sur l'appui des autres. Des socialistes et des libertaires francophones, dont Albert Saint-Martin, se joignent à la manif.
