In the last couple of weeks, the Black community in Baltimore has mobilized protests in response to the brutal murder of Freddie Gray by the Baltimore Police Department (BPD).

The news footage of Baltimore’s Black youth resisting riot cops is reminiscent of images from the Ferguson protests last summer. Yet, they are also reminiscent of the 1992 Los Angeles Uprising, as well as the many eruptions of popular unrest across the U.S. in 1968 against racist police violence. And we can go farther and farther back into history. The stories are many. The death toll to racist state violence is vast. And many are wondering: Is this our moment to bring down the racist capitalist system?

Dentro de estas violaciones, la desaparición de 43 estudiantes de Ayotzinapa es un hecho escandaloso, pero ni es excepcional ni puede abstraerse de la historia de brutalidades del Estado mexicano.

Why hasn't there been more rebellion in the US lately? What are the indications that a popular movement may develop which leads to revolution? What is meant by revolution, anyway?

Throughout the USA there is discontent. Under the apparently placid political surface there is bubbling dissatisfaction. Yet there has been only limited rebellion, all kept within the limits of Democratic-Republican politics as usual. Certainly, to most people, the possibility of a revolution — an uprising against capitalism and its state — seems distant, if not absurd. I want to argue that a revolution is quite possible (but not inevitable). And I want to clarify what revolution means.

Most political theorists ask why there are occasional rebellions and revolutions. I think it is more fruitful to ask why there are not more rebellions — popular struggles leading up to revolutions. Consider the unfairness of a tiny minority — the “one percent” — ruling over and getting rich from the big majority. Consider the dangers of ecological catastrophe, economic collapse, and nuclear war, not to mention many other issues of oppression and unfairness. Why do people put up with this? Why isn’t there at least a large movement to get rid of this system?

Democratic Party politicians have denounced right-wing Republicans as "anarchists." Why? Are they "anarchists"? What about rightwingers who call themselves "libertarians"? Are "anarcho-capitalists" really anarchists? Are they consistent with the tradition of "individualist anarchism"?

Historically this is very unusual. Far-rightists have usually been called “conservatives.” (They are rarely called the more accurate term, “reactionaries” -- those who want to go backward.) Those in the center or the left may call them other names, such as “nuts” or “fascists.” (They are mostly not “fascists” in the sense of wanting to overthrow bourgeois democracy and replace it with a rightwing dictatorship — but they shade into such people.) But they were rarely, if ever, called “anarchists.” Why now?

After putting much of our efforts in the cross Canada Speaking Tour on Combative Unionism, a debate on Combative unionism took place inside and outside of Prairie Struggle giving way to PSO's first position paper. In this position paper we hope to contribute to the relevant work and theoretical development that has been done or is already underway. We salute our comrades within the revolutionary left that are active in undermining bureaucratic control over working class power.

As anarchists, we at the Prairie Struggle Organization have dedicated much time and effort to agitation within the working class and its labour organizations. Despite our various efforts, wins, losses and relationships created we still find ourselves questioning the most effective method to agitate on the shop floors, within schools and in our communities.

220pxenrique_flores_magon1918.jpg imageAddress Of Enrique Flores Magon In The Federal Court, Los Angeles, June 22, 1916 Jan 27 04:04 by Enrique Flores Magon 0 comments

Powerful address by the Mexican anarchist-communist revolutionary, Enrique Flores Magon, brother to fellow anarchist-communist militants Jesus and Ricardo Flores Magon. This address was given to a US court, defending the brothers' fight for "the emancipation of the downtrodden, particularly of the Mexican proletarians, and of the disinherited all over the world in general." It defends the then-ongoing Mexican Revolution against imperialism and capitalism, argues for anarchist-communism, and makes an internationalist appeal to the American working class for joint struggle against tyrants and exploiters, stressing common class realities.

The brothers Enrique and Ricardo Flores Magon were at the time in exile, in the USA, conducting revolutionary work. They were arrested several times, this speech being given during the trial that followed their arrest in 1916 for distributing "indecent materials" (both were found guilty). Ricardo was again arrested in 1918 for sedition, given 20 years, and died in a US prison in 1922. Enrique was released in 1923 and returned to Mexico.

Jamar Clark - murdered by Minneapolis Police imageWhat is at Stake in North Minneapolis and #Justice4Jamar Dec 22 11:16 by db 0 comments

The horrific execution of an unarmed, handcuffed, on the ground black man in front of dozens of witnesses has led to an outburst of struggle whose fire is not spent and whose meaning is still being defined. In this article, I will argue that what is at stake in this struggle is the future of North Minneapolis, which, in miniature, is a question of the future of our cities and of working class people across the country.

Murray Bookchin was an influential and prolific writer and thinker on anarchism. Recently his work has been in the news. While he made significant contributions, he made a major error in rejecting the working class as important for an anarchist revolution. This article reviews why he believed this and why, on the contrary, the working class must be a major force for a successful anarchist revolution.

maxresdefault.jpg imageMessico: terrorismo di stato, capitalismo criminale e resistenza antisistema Nov 01 16:21 by Núcleo Comunista Libertario 0 comments

In territorio messicano, il governo di Peña Nieto si è reso responsabile di numerosi massacri contro quei cuori insorti che resistono all'oblio, alla morte ed all'impunità. Un esempio di questi massacri è la scomparsa, più di un anno fa, di 43 studenti della Scuola Normale Atyotzinapa all'interno di uno straziante processo di messa a tacere del pensiero critico, di persecuzione dei progetti educativi indipendenti e di contenimento della protesta sociale. Utilizzando i trafficanti di droga, il "para-Stato" messicano ha fisicamente ucciso decine di giovani speranze che cercavano di trasformare questo sistema marcio a partire dalla loro vita quotidiana e dal loro lavoro come insegnanti in formazione.

Our starting point in both our perspective and in our current work is the importance of organizing for the social self-defense of the working-class and oppressed communities. imageSocial Struggle in the Coming Period Oct 29 05:19 by First of May Anarchist Alliance 0 comments

The following points represent a brief statement of priorities, an outline of some of the perspectives our organization has decided on to help guide our thinking and actions in the coming period. We do not want to overstate where our organization is at in our analysis and organizing, nor are these points a substitute for the hard discussions our organization still must have. These points developed out of reviews and discussions of the nature of the current period, the continuing wave of social protest domestically and abroad, and how we as a small and specific group of anarchist revolutionaries can participate in and help build those movements for dignity, justice and freedom.

En las tierras mexicanas, para no irse muy lejos, el gobierno de Peña Nieto ha venido cometiendo innumerables masacres en contra de los corazones insurrectos que se resisten al olvido, la muerte y la impunidad. Ejemplo de ello fue la desaparición, hace más de un año, de 43 estudiantes de la escuela normal de Atyotzinapa en un proceso atroz de silenciamiento del pensamiento crítico, de persecución a proyectos educativos autónomos y de contención de la protesta social. Con ayuda de los narcos, el “paraestado” mexicano asesinó físicamente a decenas de jóvenes esperanza que intentaban transformar este sistema podrido desde su cotidianidad y desde su labor como docentes en formación.

As much as this pains those who have participated in the anarchist communist experience between 2011 and 2014 in the Canadian prairies, today, Prairie Struggle announces its official secession and subsequent disbandment. To this day, Prairie Struggle was the only specific platformist organization in the Canadians prairies. Though some may recall the existence of an anarchist communist group in Regina affiliated to the ACF (Anarchist Communist Federation of North America) in the 80s, organized anarchism in the prairies has had many difficulties, some of which the Prairie Struggle Project has failed to overcome. Despite its downfall, Prairie Struggle, for one last time, offers a look into the organization, its failures and its small victories.

Les nouvelles images de jeunes noires de Baltimore résistant à la police anti-émeutes ne sont pas sans rappeler celles des manifestations de Ferguson l’été dernier. Elles ne sont également pas sans rappeler les émeutes de Los Angeles en 1992, tout comme les nombreux soulèvements populaires aux Etats-Unis contre les crimes policiers racistes en 1968. Et l’on pourrait remonter encore plus loin dans l’histoire de ce pays. Il existe de nombreuses histoires de ce genre. La liste des morts imputés à la violence d’un état raciste est longue. Beaucoup en viennent donc à se demander si n’est pas venu pour eux le moment d’abattre ce système capitaliste raciste ? [Castellano] [English]

La búsqueda de riquezas naturales potenciadas por la alianza entre gobiernos, inversionistas y bandas de narcotráfico, demuestra que el camino es difícil, sin embargo, detrás de la violencia se esconden numerosas experiencias comunitarias que toman cada vez más fuerza y se perfilan como el único camino posible para salir de la corrupción.

The murder of Mike Brown at the hands of a police officer in Ferguson, MO evoked rage among the people, both in his neighborhood and across the country. The militant protests that followed were an understandable and appropriate response . . .
