Debate "The claim that "syndicalist unions broke off from mainstream federations to form 'purely revolutionary' unions, cutting themselves off from the mass of workers" doesn't hold up, though it does conform to the Leninist orthodoxy of "Left-Wing" Communism: An Infantile Disorder. There were many countries where the syndicalist unions were the majority--such as Portugal, Spain, Argentina, Uruguay, Peru and Brazil. Syndicalist unions in South Africa, such as the Industrial Workers of Africa (modeled on the Industrial Workers of the World), were the only unions that organized native African workers, who were excluded from the white craft unions.
At the time of the mass occupation of the factories in Italy in September 1920, the USI (Italian Syndicalist Union) was claiming 800,000 members, and the factory councils formed throughout Italy in those events were mostly organized by the USI. Moreover, it was the anarcho-syndicalists who initiated a militia movement ("arditti del popolo") to fight Mussolini's fascist squads. But the Communists didn't cooperate, and the Socialist Party capitulated to fascism.

Ένας τρόπος να διασφαλίσουμε ότι οι κάτοικοι δεν θα εκτοπιστούν είναι να αλλάξουμε το ιδιοκτησιακό καθεστώς της γης και των κτιρίων. Οι κοινοτικοί συνεταιρισμοί γης αποτελούν μια ελπιδοφόρα προσέγγιση. Η ιδέα του κοινοτικού συνεταιρισμού γης προβλέπει ότι οι κάτοικοι είναι ιδιοκτήτες των κτιρίων που ζουν και ο κοινοτικός συνεταιρισμός γης –ένας μη κερδοσκοπικός οργανισμός των κατοίκων της γειτονιάς– είναι ιδιοκτήτης του οικοπέδου. read full story / add a comment

Esta huelga general ilustra las buenas relaciones que se están forjando entre el movimiento Occupy y el sindicalismo norteamericano. También el creciente nivel de descontento entre la clase trabajadora debido al alto nivel de desempleo, los desahucios y los ataques contra la educación pública y otras conquistas sociales, en unos momentos en que las grandes empresas están disfrutando de los mayores beneficios de su historia, en que los ingresos de sus directivos son obscenos y en que los políticos republicanos y demócratas sólo tienen oídos para la elite capitalista. read full story / add a comment

Despite heavy police presence at major bus transfer points, at least a
couple thousand passengers rode the buses for free in San Francisco on
Thursday, September 1st - the opening day of a fare strike in North
America's most bus-intensive city. In the days leading up to September
1st,
more than 50 people were actively organizing for the fare strike, with new
groups endorsing the effort in the last week. More than 20,000 leaflets
had been distributed and 10,000 stickers were attached to bus shelters and
poles throughout the city - in Spanish and Chinese as well as English. read full story / add a comment
