indonesia / philippines / australia / community struggles / press release Friday May 17, 2019 06:40 by Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group   image 1 image
On 18 May, enrolled voters in Australia will decide which members of the capitalist class will represent us in Parliament and crush us in government for the next three years. This election occurs at a time when the world has been informed that it has, at most, until 2030 to take effective action to stop and begin reversing climate change, or risk crossing tipping points into runaway temperature rises that would kill billions and endanger industrial civilisation. So you’d think the major players would be presenting plans to fix it. But no, this is Australian capitalist democracy and we get something different. read full story / add a comment

The MACG thus defends Julian Assange, not because of his politics, which have curdled and are now quite suspect, nor because we consider him innocent of the Swedish accusations. The US ruling class has no objection to his politics, because they are riddled with the sort of people with whom he has been collaborating. And neither do they have any objection to sexual assault – if they did, Donald Trump would not be President. The United States wants to punish him, not for any crimes he might have committed, but for his good deeds. The MACG defend Assange for those same good deeds. read full story / add a comment

The only way out is struggle. We, the working class, must organise in the teeth of all obstructions. We must build the unions that the officials manifestly can’t build by themselves. We must use our vital weapon, the strike, and if the officials won’t help, we must act without them. And we must build solidarity across borders, because only international solidarity can beat the power of global capital. Standing together, in defiance of nationalism, we will have built a movement that embodies the values of a new and better world, a movement which also has the power to create that world. We can make a revolution to overthrow capitalism and create libertarian communism, worldwide. read full story / add a comment

There will be no peace while imperialism dominates the globe. Imperialism, though, is not a policy but the set of international relationships under global capitalism. Powerful countries compete with each other for influence and markets and seek to impose a world order in their favour. To end imperialism and its endless wars, we need to end capitalism. read full story / add a comment

Υπάρχει μόνο ένας τρόπος να καταπολεμήσουμε αποτελεσματικά τον φασισμό, επειδή η μόνη δύναμη που μπορεί να νικήσει τον φασισμό είναι η οργανωμένη εργατική τάξη. Χρειαζόμαστε ένα ενωμένο μέτωπο όπου όλοι οι στόχοι των φασιστών συναντιούνται στον αγώνα. Σε αυτό το ενιαίο μέτωπο χωρούν βέβαεια διαφορετικές πολιτικές προοπτικές και ποικίλες τακτικές, αλλά αν μπορούμε να συμφωνήσουμε για την ανάγκη να δράσουμε μαζί ενάντια στον κοινό εχθρό, αυτό μπορεί να αποβεί αποτελεσματική. Κατά τη διάρκεια του αγώνα, η εγκυρότητα των Αναρχικών Κομμουνιστικών αρχών και οργανωτικών προσεγγίσεων θα αποδειχθεί σε ολοένα αυξανόμενο αριθμό εργαζομένων. read full story / add a comment

There is only one way to fight Fascism effectively, because the only force that can beat Fascism is the organised working class. We need a united front where all the Fascists’ targets come together in struggle. This united front necessarily has room for different political perspectives and a diversity of tactics, but as long as we can agree on the need to act together against the common enemy, it can be effective. In the course of the struggle, the validity of Anarchist Communist principles and organisational approaches will be proven to increasing numbers of workers. read full story / add a comment

Η μόνη ρεαλιστική προσέγγιση της αλλαγής του κλίματος είναι αυτή που αναγνωρίζει την ανισότητα στην κοινωνία μας. Οι πολιτικές του νεοφιλελευθερισμού, και ειδικότερα η τιμολόγηση του άνθρακα, συνιστούν συνταγή για αποτυχία. Οι εργαζόμενοι και οι κοινότητες που εξαρτώνται σήμερα από μη βιώσιμες βιομηχανίες αξίζουν μια δίκαιη μετάβαση. Τα πρότυπα διαβίωσης της εργατικής τάξης στο σύνολό της πρέπει να προστατεύονται για να διατηρήσουν την κοινωνική στήριξη για τη μετάβαση σε μια οικονομία χωρίς άνθρακα. Η τιμή της μετάβασης πρέπει να βαρύνει εκείνους που έχτισαν και επωφελήθηκαν από μη βιώσιμες βιομηχανίες - τους καπιταλιστές. Εν ολίγοις, πρέπει να καταργήσουμε τον καπιταλισμό. Είναι η μόνη στρατηγική που μπορεί να λειτουργήσει. read full story / add a comment

The only realistic approach to climate change is one that recognises the inequality in our society. The policies of neo-liberalism, in particular carbon pricing, are a prescription for failure. Workers and communities currently reliant on unsustainable industries deserve a just transition. Working class living standards as a whole must be protected to maintain social support for a transition to a carbon free economy. The price of the transition must be borne by those who built and profited from unsustainable industries – the capitalists. In short, we need to abolish capitalism. It is the only strategy that can work. read full story / add a comment

So, this year and every year, the MACG joins the call to abolish Australia Day. Our vision is of a stateless communist society, a Workers’ Commonwealth worldwide and operating on the basis of consistent federalism. Here, in the land that is currently called Australia, the Workers’ Commonwealth will be the vehicle through which non-indigenous people work with, and learn from, indigenous people how to live sustainably in the land, as they did so successfully for over 60,000 years before the First Fleet brought British colonialism to these shores. read full story / add a comment

Δεν μπορούμε να καταπολεμήσουμε τον αγώνα ενάντια στον σεξισμό, τον ρατσισμό, την ομοφοβία, το θρησκευτικό φανατισμό, το μίσος κατά των τρανς ή οποιαδήποτε άλλη καταπίεση “μετά την Επανάσταση”. Κάτι τέτοιο θα εξασφάλιζε το ότι η Επανάσταση δεν θα έρθει ποτέ. Αντίθετα, πρέπει να επιστρέψουμε στη θεμελιώδη αρχή με βάση την οποία δημιουργήθηκε το συνδικαλιστικό κίνημα - Touch One, Touch All (Η επίθεση στον ένα είναι επίθεση σε όλους). Όλες οι μορφές καταπίεσης, εντός και εκτός χώρων εργασίας, αποτελούν επίθεση στην αλληλεγγύη μας και, επομένως, στην εργατική τάξη στο σύνολό της. read full story / add a comment

The struggle of the working class is linked to the revolution in three ways. First, the struggle is located where capital gets its power – in the workplace. Second, the struggle over wages and conditions shows that economic crises are inevitable within capitalism and the looming threat of an irresolvable crisis is ever growing. And third, it is only through struggle that the working class will learn the iron solidarity necessary for revolution. As it casts aside all reactionary prejudices (what Marx called “the muck of ages”), the working class will remake itself as a body of free and equal people fit for a libertarian communist society. read full story / add a comment

The Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group have joined PUSH! Organising and Educating to Build an Anti-Fascist United Front. As its name implies, PUSH! aims to build a united front of working class organisations against Fascism. Our forces are modest, composed of a handful of groups and individual activists who have left CARF, but we are clear about our basic direction. ... The MACG will pursue our vision for an anti-Fascist united front within PUSH! We know that many groups in the labour movement don’t share our strategy, so they will have to be either won over or sidelined. And we know that the union bureaucracy is craven and conservative, but we place our faith in the rank and file workers who are Fascism’s targets. The struggle against Fascism is inseparable from the struggle against the union bureaucracy – but didn’t we know that already? read full story / add a comment

The Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group opposes Australian imperialism and militarism and therefore opposes all celebrations of it. We look forward to a workers' revolution which will usher in a world community of freedom and equality for all – and where war will be seen in museums, not the news. read full story / add a comment

Η Αναρχική Κομμουνιστική Ομάδα Μελβούρνης (Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group - MACG) υποστηρίζει τους αγώνες των προσφύγων, οι οποίοι ζητούν απλώς τα νόμιμα δικαιώματά τους όσον αφορά την παροχή ασύλου. Καλούμε το συνδικαλιστικό κίνημα στην Αυστραλία, τμήματα του οποίου ενστερνίζονται αρκετά λογικές πολιτικές για τους πρόσφυγες, να πάρουν ενεργό θέση και να οργανώσουν την άμυνα των προσφύγων. Προσβλέπουμε σε μια εργατική επανάσταση που θα δημιουργήσει μια ενιαία ομοσπονδιακή παγκόσμια κοινότητα με ελεύθερη κυκλοφορία για όλους. Εν τω μεταξύ, υποστηρίζουμε τις δράσεις του Close the Camps Action Collective (Ομάδα Δράσης για το Κλείσιμο των Κέντρων) https://www.facebook.com/Close-the-Camps-Action-Collect...4102/. read full story / add a comment

The Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group supports the struggles of refugees, who are simply demanding their legal rights to asylum. We call on the union movement in Australia, sections of which have quite reasonable refugee policies, to act on them and come to the refugees' defence. We look forward to a workers' revolution which will create a single federal world community with freedom of movement for everyone. And in the meantime, we support the work of the Close the Camps Action Collective: https://www.facebook.com/Close-the-Camps-Action-Collect...4102/. read full story / add a comment

Η Αναρχική Κομμουνιστική Ομάδα Μελβούρνης (Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group - MACG) πιστεύει ότι η καλύτερη άμεση αντίδραση στον φασισμό είναι ένα διεθνιστικό εργατικό κίνημα αντίστασης με τη μορφή ενός ενιαίου μετώπου. Στο πλαίσιο αυτό, μπορούμε να προτείνουμε μια ελευθεριακή κομμουνιστική λύση στις πολλές κρίσεις του καπιταλισμού. Συμμετέχουμε στην Καμπάνια κατά του Ρατσισμού και του Φασισμού (Campaign Against Racism and Fascism - CARF) επειδή, αν και έχει σοβαρές ατέλειες, κάνει κάποια καλή δουλειά και είναι το μόνο ενιαίο μέτωπο της εργατικής τάξης που έχουμε στη διάθεσή μας αυτή τη στιγμή. Ελπίζουμε να συμβάλουμε στην επίλυση των προβλημάτων του, κυρίως στην απομόνωσή του από το συνδικαλιστικό κίνημα, αγωνιζόμενοι για έναν κόσμο όπου ο φασισμός θα σταλθεί μόνιμα στον κάδο των αχρήστων της ιστορίας. read full story / add a comment

The Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group believes the best immediate response to Fascism is an internationalist working class movement of resistance in the form of a united front. Within this, we can put forward a libertarian communist solution to the many crises of capitalism. We participate in the Campaign Against Racism and Fascism because, although it has severe flaws, it does some good work and is the only working class united front available to us at the moment. We hope to contribute to solving its problems, most importantly its isolation from the union movement, and fight for a world where Fascism is consigned permanently to the dustbin of history. read full story / add a comment

The October Revolution in Russia was a momentous event and the Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group celebrates its centenary. The Soviets and the Factory Committees were great achievements of the working class and taking power was an even greater achievement. We are angered by the betrayal of the Revolution by Lenin and its total perversion by Stalin, but we are not disillusioned. Rather, we have learned lessons and work in the confident expectation that, if capitalism doesn’t destroy us in the meantime, there will be another revolution, and it will be worldwide. Unlike last time, workers won’t get taken in by the siren song of leaders who tell us fairy tales about a workers’ state. We won’t be fooled again. read full story / add a comment

The Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group supports a YES vote in the postal survey on marriage equality now in progress in Australia. We do this, not because we endorse the institution of marriage, but because the survey will have concrete results and we need to choose which results we favour. The postal survey is a flawed process of direct democracy, something far inferior to an authentic plebiscite on a concrete proposal. We didn’t choose this battlefield, but it’s a battle we must win. Vote YES for liberty, equality and solidarity. Vote YES and prepare to take the struggle further. read full story / add a comment
