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.

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

da_cov.jpg imageEnd War: End Capitalism 06:58 Tue 25 Apr by Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group 0 comments

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.

Il tema delle fasi finali della vita oggi è diventato via via sempre più importante nel dibattito etico e politico sulle questioni di salute per due motivi principali. Il primo è di carattere economico e tecnologico, il secondo sociale-filosofico. Si vive sempre più a lungo attraversando diversi livelli di cronicizzazione delle malattie che colpiscono le persone nell’arco della loro vita.

imageReflexiones sobre el trabajo de base de matriz libertaria Apr 24 by Antônio Ade 0 comments

La izquierda brasilera vive una crisis de movilización que viene de décadas atrás. Eso queda en evidencia frente al escenario de ajuste, de recomposición conservadora y del retroceso en temas de derechos en el Brasil pre y pos dictadura. Así nos encontramos desarmados ante tantos ataques.

A pesar de las buenas movilizaciones recientes, posibilitadas en gran medida por los nuevos medios y redes sociales, el fracaso constante al movilizar amplios sectores de las clases oprimidas quedó claro tras el 2013 pues se evidenció el carácter volátil y pulverizado de los conflictos. A pesar de que en ese momento algunas movilizaciones lograron un relativo grado de radicalidad, muy raramente se encontraron entre sí, expresando una clara señal de fragmentación.

On March 26th there was a popular referendum in the heart of Colombia, in the town of Cajamarca, in the department of Tolima, to decide whether the citizens agreed with gold mining in their territory or not. In this municipality the transnational corporation AngloGold Ashanti has been for years pushing for the exploitation of a gold mine they call La Colosa (Colossus), which is reputedly the largest gold mine in the Western Hemisphere. 98% of voters rejected mining in Cajamarca, mostly because of the fact that gold has no use other than producing profits and it is a most destructive activity against the environment.
