Questo volume ci offre un capitolo piuttosto sconosciuto nel mondo libertario italiano: il ruolo dei volontari anarchici di madre lingua tedesca durante la guerra civile spagnola 1936-39.
Molto spazio viene dedicato alla rivoluzione libertaria e sociale con numerosi contributi sulla collettivizzazione. Inoltre giornalisti, scrittori e fotoreporter raccontano la rivoluzione culturale ed artistica nonché la campagna dell’alfabetizzazione. Ci siamo messi anche sulle tracce di anarchici tedeschi in esilio che sono andati in spagna in aiuto della repubblica (e avevo descritto nel mio saggio precedente: "Contro Hitler-gli anarchici e la resistenza tedesca dimenticata").

Con una dozzina di testimonianze dirette i volontari anarchici e della sinistra rivoluzionaria ci accompagnano al fronte, nelle giornate sanguinose del maggio 1937 di Barcellona, nella repressione comunista e nelle prigioni staliniane in Spagna, di nuovo in esilio, nei campi in Francia e nei campi di concentramento tedeschi.

This is your chance to meet Antoine Gimenez who, by anybody’s standards, led an interesting life. In Italy, back around 1922 (when he was still Bruno Salvadori), he defended a classmate from bullying fascists. ‘It wasn’t chivalry or political beliefs – I was about twelve years old – but was quite simply that the girl was a student in the same class as us. […] When I came to […] I had been rescued from the Blackshirts’ clutches by some anarchists.’ [p551] So young Bruno became a subversive and set off down the path which would lead him into exile in France and later Spain. read full story / add a comment
Albert Parsons in the 1870s

As a tribute to one of the most remarkable agitators in labour history, we publish on May Day the autobiography of Albert Parsons. He was one of the five Chicago Anarchists who were tried in 1886-1887 and executed in November 1887 for their role as 8-hour working-day agitators and as anarchist militants. This mock-trial in 'the land of liberty' is one of the most shameful events in the history of labour in the whole world, and gave rise to May Day commemorations all over the world -the day was picked, because the repression which ended up in the 'legal lynching' of the Chicago Martyrs started after the general strike for the 8 hours working-day in May 1st 1886. This day is commemorated all over the world in memory of the Chicago Martyrs -unsurprisingly, one of the few countries which does not commemorate May Day is the land where this barbaric crime took place -the United States. They invented their own 'Labour Day' in September, with the purpose of severing the working class in the US from its radical tradition, and to devoid of meaning the conquest of the 8 hour working-day, a product of struggle and enormous sacrifice, not a gift from the capitalists. The life of Albert Parsons is instructive of the trajectory of many working class agitators in the US in the 19th century, a period of remarkable radicalism which was crushed with unspeakable ruthlessness and repression. His life story goes from fighting in the Confederate States Army during the US Civil War as a 13 year old, to republican and civil rights' agitator, advocate of the emancipation of the slaves, then trade unionist, socialist and anarchist. He was married to Lucy Parsons, a mixed race woman herself born a slave, who would become a prominent socialist and anarchist, and who was a founding member of the Industrial Workers of the World, IWW, in 1905. A remarkable organiser and orator, he was the soul of the most progressive and active workers' movement in the USA at the time: in Chicago. Parsons was the only US citizen of 'pure stock' among the Chicago Martyrs (his ancestry going back all the way to one of the pilgrims in the Mayflower in 1632) -all his comrades being German. The immigrant nature of these anarchists was the cause for a racist and xenophobic uproar that no doubt was crucial to justify their barbaric execution -these racist, xenophobic tendencies are still alive and healthy in the USA, as we can see from the current state of affairs in the country. This is why, being not only a remarkable speaker, but also a well-self-educated man (at a time when the workers' movement still placed much emphasis on the self-education of the workers), he chose to strike a chord with public opinion and counter arguments that socialism and anarchism were 'foreign' and 'alien' ideas, by appealing to texts such as the US Declaration of Independence and opinions of Thomas Jefferson, while also appealing to the conservative and religious frame of mind prevalent, ended up by quoting the Bible. Of course, nothing would save him from the fury of the capitalists' class hatred, but this autobiography is a masterpiece of engaging with the prevalent environment at the time from a radical perspective, of showing in a sober manner his process of radicalisation and the logic behind it, and also, a staunch defence of the anarchist principles by which he lived and which he did not betrayed when confronted to the gallows. Our best tribute to this titanic figure is to resist the current onslaught of the global capitalists against hard-won workers' rights, while to keep faithful to the cause of a free and just world. José Antonio Gutiérrez D.

Πρέπει να ασχοληθούμε με τους κομισάριους που μιλούν στις συνελεύσεις υπέρ της συγκρότησης μιας Συντακτικής Συνέλευσης, αντί για τη συνολική νίκη των εργαζομένων. Αυτός είναι ο τρόπος με τον οποίο συμπεριφέρονται στις συνελεύσεις, αλλά αυτό που συμβαίνει στον ιδιωτικό τομέα είναι ακόμη χειρότερο. Όλοι οι κομισάριοι εργάζονται ο καθένας με τον δικό τους τρόπο, ασχολούνται βέβαια με την εξαθλίωση και την έντονη κατανάλωση αλκοόλ, αλλά δεν ανησυχούν για την κατασυκοφάντηση σε βάρος των εργαζομένων. Η αστυνομία που είναι υπεύθυνη για τα τρόφιμα κλέβει το βούτυρο, το λουκάνικο, το αλεύρι κ.λπ. στο σιδηροδρομικό σταθμό και το πουλάει πιο δίπλα.

Gonzalo Berger (Barcelona, 1977), es doctor en historia por la Universidad de Barcelona y docente universitario. Es autor de varios libros y trabajos de investigación sobre la Guerra Civil y el obrerismo de principios del siglo XX en la comarca del Maresme. Algunos de ellos son consultables por internet, dando así la oportunidad a nuevas investigaciones partiendo de lo que ha recopilado. En concreto se podría destacar el artículo que recoge el peso concreto de la CNT catalana en 1937, con cifras y extrapolaciones; o el trabajo sobre los muertos de las milicias catalanas, con nombres y apellidos, unidad y filiación que ha publicado recientemente en su blog su primera versión; o la lista de columnas y centurias que salieron de Catalunya que publica en los anexos de su tesis doctoral y de su libro (ya os adelantamos que salieron 151 columnas - muchas compuestas solamente de 1 o 2 centurias - entre julio y diciembre de 1936, en las que el bloque CNT-FAI aportó el 43% de milicianos y milicianas).

Berger además se dedica a difundir el conocimiento de lo que supuso la guerra a través de documentales y exposiciones como por ejemplo “Dones en Guerra", "Espais de la Batalla de Mallorca", "Milicianes" o "No Pasarán: 16 días. Madrid 1936".

Hoy en día, la apertura de los archivos y la mejora de su accesibilidad (empiezan a digitalizarse en algunos lugares) está dando y dará pie a nuevas reformulaciones de lo que ha sido investigado ya. Pero se necesita primero un trabajo de base, desde el que empezar a leer la historia, que suele ser una tarea titánica y más basada en la estadística y la recopilación de datos y nombres que en su interpretación. Comentaba hace poco Rafael Cid la importancia de la labor de "arqueología" que realizan los militantes que investigan y los historiadores que militan y que constituyen una enciclopedia con trabajo. read full story / add a comment

Em 1925, a costureira e militante anarquista Alzira Werkauser tomou a palavra e presidiu uma sessão do 3° Congresso Operário do Rio Grande do Sul. Nesta ocasião atuou como delegada sindical com mandato do sindicato dos alfaiates, costureiras e anexos. Alzira foi
ativa militante da resistência a opressão sobre as mulheres, da luta sindical das costureiras e das convicções anarquistas em uma peleia diária e incansável para mudar o mundo com socialismo e liberdade. Sua moção ao Congresso a que nos referimos levava intuitivamente, pelas misérias que padecia como mulher trabalhadora e mulher oprimida, aquela noção tão forte e tão feminista que pronunciou a comunera Louise Michel: “Tomem cuidado com as mulheres quando se cansarem de tudo o que as rodeia e se levantem contra o velho mundo. Nesse dia um novo mundo começará.” read full story / add a comment

Rob Ray’s book begins with the disarming confession that he imagined writing a ‘relatively short pamphlet’ (p3). 300 pages later you’ve been given a whistle-stop tour of Freedom’s history (both newspaper and publishing house). Thankfully, while he draws on previous histories, he includes some new accounts and comments from other people connected with Freedom Press. read full story / add a comment
