When we have to deal with disagreements, conflicts and faults, these problems must be solved with a justice that is based on our libertarian ethical values. What does this concretely mean? That we have to hear all the parties involved and make sure to provide physical and psychological protection too all, especially if someone has – at least presumably – been hurt. In cases of sexual violence – for instance – we should not reproduce the bias of bourgeois patriarchal so-called “justice” that too frequently isolates (female) survivors and dismisses their feelings and words. It means that we have to establish means to examine the different positions and eliminate any doubts. That we have to have democratic and collective processes to deal with that and to take decisions and make recommendations. And, mainly, that we must first try to reeducate people instead of punishing or isolating them. Not that in some cases punishment or isolation couldn’t be the only solution, but, at least, we have to make (re)education a priority over punishment and isolation, which should be last resorts. To deal with these problems within our movement instances of ethical justice that aim to resolve major disagreements, conflicts and faults are necessary. These instance, such as an “ethics commission” for example, could be convened and articulated whenever one or more militants within our movement or organizations identify a problem of this kind and ask formally for the establishment of a commission. The establishment of a commission (or the denial) would be the result of a collective decision made by the deliberative and decision-making bodies of the respective organizations. If a commission is established, then a certain number of militants not involved with the case could be mandated to constitute the commission and be given a deadline to listen to the different parties involved, to develop positions, eliminate doubts and then to produce a written document with a position and recommendations to the respective organization.
To “solve the problem” means, here, to find ways to reach agreements, to find solutions to conflicts, to deal with faults and to eliminate doubts. Although giving preference to (re)education, the commission could decide for issuing a warning, suspension, sanction or even expulsion or "excommunication".

Στην «καρδιά» των εργασιών του «ποδαριού», στα μηχανάκια, έχει ξεκινήσει ένας τέτοιος συνδικαλισμός. Σε έναν χώρο που μετράει νεκρούς και σακατεμένους σε «ατυχήματα», δηλαδή δολοφονίες από την πλευρά των αφεντικών, στο κέντρο του αποστήματος της επισφάλειας υπάρχει παράδειγμα. Στα σπάργανα αυτές οι προσπάθειες -στα μηχανάκια και σε άλλους κλάδους στους οποίους έχουν δημιουργηθεί και αγωνίζονται σωματεία βάσης- (σε σχέση με το πόσο πρέπει να επεκταθούν αριθμητικά, κλαδικά και γεωγραφικά) κατορθώνουν και κινητοποιούν, κερδίζουν νίκες. Μικρές είναι η αλήθεια, αλλά πόσο καιρό έχουμε να ακούσουμε τη λέξη «νίκη»; read full story / add a comment
