Διεθνή / Εργατικοί Αγώνες / Γνώμη / Ανάλυση Wednesday October 24, 2018 21:53 by Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group   image 1 image
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

Διεθνή / Αντιφασισμός / Γνώμη / Ανάλυση Thursday March 01, 2018 18:29 by Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group - MACG   image 1 image
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

On May Day we commemorate the past, but we also look to the future. There is no reason to be confident in capitalist economic recovery. There are many reasons to struggle against the horrors of oppression, unemployment, environmental devastation and war that capitalism dishes up. Workers can solve these problems for good. We can make a revolution and, as we do, the mass democratic workers' organisations we create will be the basis of the new society, worldwide. In this new society, each will contribute according to their ability and each receive according to their need. We will have no need of a State apparatus to enforce the dictates of a privileged elite. We will live a life of peace, freedom and equality. We have nothing to lose but our chains. read full story / add a comment

War is integral to imperialism. We can't end war without ending imperialism and we can't end imperialism without ending capitalism, because imperialism is not merely a policy, but the set of international relationships in capitalism for over 100 years now. We don't have to send young men and women overseas to kill brown people and we don't have to allow a US base at Pine Gap to guide both nuclear missiles and drones. To change direction, though, means eliminating the capitalist system that brings us these horrors. The working class needs to unite internationally and make a revolution to abolish it. We need to replace capitalism with the only possible alternative – libertarian communism. read full story / add a comment

For the most part, it is only workers inside the US who can take the necessary direct action against Trump. Only they can fight for the program which is necessary to defeat Trump, the old guard Republicans and the Democrats. Direct action against Trump may be possible for some workers outside the US (e.g. workers in US-owned corporations, workers supplying US military bases), but this is necessarily supplementary and guided by the tempo of US events. read full story / add a comment

This time around, let’s fight for workers’ control from the start. Let’s create structures with checks and balances that ensure workers keep control. Let us not hand over power to a state that can institute tyranny all over again. We want anarchist communist organisation. Workers' delegation. Equable procedures. Bottom up organisation. It is 100 years since women workers began the 1917 revolution. Let’s do it again! The time for global revolution is here! read full story / add a comment

All efforts must now be made to bring the unions into the struggle. This will be difficult, though, due to the cowardly nature of the union bureaucracy. The message must be got through to all unionists that racism is fatal to working class solidarity. read full story / add a comment

The Australian Federal election campaign grinds on, with most people being heartily sick of the whole thing. Neither the Liberals nor Labor are trusted by most voters and the major parties are horrified at the drift of voters to minor parties of all stripes. Anarchists have something to say about this, something deeper than just advising people about voting. We say if you’re looking to fix the problems in society, Parliament is the wrong place. read full story / add a comment

The labour movement in Melbourne, though far declined from its former strength, has neither totally given up the ghost nor been allowed quarter by its enemies. Unions campaign for health and safety, against insecure work and against the use of temporary work visas to undermine labour standards. The campaigns, though, are undermined by the conservatism and timidity of the union officials, their support for the Labor Party and their nationalist focus on “Aussie jobs”, which interferes with building the necessary solidarity between local workers and super-exploited migrant workers. Meanwhile, the capitalists are proceeding with legislation to destroy the construction workers' union (CFMEU) and bring the entire union movement under close State supervision. read full story / add a comment

Πρέπει να οικοδομήσουμε ένα κίνημα της εργατικής τάξης, που να εκτείνεται πέρα ​​από τα σύνορα και να μην αφήνει έδαφος στις καπιταλιστικές κυβερνήσεις που δεν έχουν καμία λύση για τα διεθνή προβλήματα, παρά μόνο τον πόλεμο. Πρέπει να οικοδομήσουμε την επανάσταση των εργατών και την ανατροπή του καπιταλισμού. Και μόνο τότε θα μπορέσουμε να οικοδομήσουμε έναν κόσμο ελευθερίας, ισότητας και αλληλεγγύης - έναν κόσμο σε ειρήνη. read full story / add a comment

If we want peace, we must follow the example of the workers and worker-soldiers who ended WWI. We must build a working class movement which spans across frontiers and cuts the ground out from under the capitalist governments that have no solution for international problems but war. We must make a workers' revolution and overthrow capitalism. And only then will we be able to build a world of liberty, equality and solidarity – a world at peace. read full story / add a comment
