Eddie Conlon (left) and Alan (right) at Dunnes Stores strike picket against Apartheid in South Africa, 1984.

The WSM are shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the death of Alan MacSimóin, one of our founder members, a friend, and a key central figure in building the anarchist movement in Ireland for over four decades. Alan had not been a member of WSM for some years but remained politically active right to the end. His last Facebook post on November 29th was supporting the locked out bricklayers at Mary’s Mansions. Alan will be sorely missed by all in the WSM and we offer our heartfelt condolences to his family and friends.

El movimiento estudiantil colombiano ha estado signado por un vaivén constante; unos ires y venires a lo largo de su trayectoria que ha dejado victorias, avances, pero también muchos estancamientos, lo cuales han producido un inmovilismo y un limitado accionar defensivo que ha sido nombrado en muchas ocasiones como “el coyunturalismo del movimiento estudiantil”. En ese sentido, en el marco de la actual coyuntura que busca responder principalmente al problema de la desfinanciación de la educación superior pública quisiéramos dejar algunas reflexiones.

Nota da Coordenação Anarquista Brasileira

O atual cenário político brasileiro exige muita lucidez e frieza para o conjunto dos lutadores e das lutadoras populares e sua análise da realidade. Nós da Coordenação Anarquista Brasileira, modestamente, buscamos dar nossa contribuição a compreensão do convulsionado cenário político-social, cujo principal corte se encontra no golpe jurídico-parlamentar que derrubou Dilma Rousseff do governo. Vivemos recentemente o chamado esgotamento do pacto da Nova República de 1988. Tal pacto, mantinha a exclusão social dos/as de baixo, enquanto garantia direitos jurídicos mínimos, numa coalizão que envolveu políticos burgueses, o empresariado, os militares e parte dos setores reformistas da esquerda.

A construção do Estado brasileiro, no entanto, sempre esteve mais próxima dos interesses das potências imperialistas de turno do que da maioria da população. O estado penal para os pobres sempre foi a norma das instituições da democracia burguesa. Os governos do PT, desde Lula, incrementaram a máquina criminal da ordem pública com todo um aparato legislativo-judicial que reproduziram o super-encarceramento dos pobres e negros e a parafernália repressiva que ataca as lutas sociais. O pacto de conciliação de classes foi rompido e o colaboracionismo rasgado para dar lugar à agenda agressiva do capitalismo financeiro sobre os direitos sociais, as liberdades parciais e os bens públicos, que foram conquistas históricas do movimento popular.

As repression keeps mounting in Turkey amidst a generalised economic crisis, we had the chance of discussing with a member of Devrimci Anarşist Faaliyet (DAF), a Turkey-based anarchist organisation, the current situation under Ergogan and its implications in the ongoing Syrian conflict and the new balance of power which is being created out of this civil war. Their perspectives are of interest to militants everywhere in the Globe.

Μακάρι να γίνει αυτή η νέα καταστροφή πέρα από αφορμή πένθους και επίδειξης εθελοντισμού και κοινωνικής αλληλεγγύης (που πρέπει να ειπωθεί ότι είναι ανέλπιστα συγκινητική) και αφορμή προβληματισμού. Βαθύ προβληματισμού γύρω από την ποιότητα και την ιεράρχηση των κοινωνικών αξιών. Γιατί από τις προηγούμενες μεγάλες καταστροφές το μόνο που έμεινε ήταν δυστυχώς περισσότερα αυθαίρετα.

El asesinato de Floyd no es un hecho fortuito. El año pasado, 1099 personas fueron asesinadas por la policía en Estados Unidos, de los cuales muchísimos eran negros. 99% de estos asesinatos están en la más escandalosa impunidad. Una tasa alarmante que compite con las cifras de otras “lumbreras” de los derechos humanos como Colombia. Esto demuestra que la violencia policial, lejos de ser una anomalía, es aupada por el establecimiento de los EEUU. Por todo el establecimiento, tanto por republicanos como por demócratas. [English]

The murder of Floyd is not a once-off incident. Last year 1,099 people were killed by the US police, of which a sizeable proportion are black. 99% of these murders remain in absolute impunity –an alarming impunity rate only rivalled by the likes of Colombia in the continent, which goes to demonstrate how police violence, far from an anomaly, is condoned by the US establishment. By all of it, whether Republican or Democrat. [Castellano]

Bu olay, kölelik günlerinden beri süren ve henüz durmayan ABD'deki sayısız beyaz olmayan insan ve Afro soyundan gelenlerin cinayetlerine bir yenisini daha eklemiştir.Obama’nın hükümeti süresince de 1950 ve 60'larin ırkçı saldırı zamanlarını hatırlatan onlarca genç siyah cinayeti vardı.

We repudiate the cowardly murder of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis’s police officers, another racist act in the heart of a world imperialist power. This event is added to the countless number of killings of people of colour and the Afro-descendent population in the United States which has been perpetuated since the days of slavery and hasn’t yet stopped. Racism, a structural element in capitalist society, especially in North American capitalism, is unfortunately intact, but resistance and fighting spirit from people of color and poor people arises in response. Only solidarity and mutual aid will allow us to resist.

Repudiamos el asesinato de George Floyd a manos de la policía de Minneapolis, en otro acto racista en el seno de la potencia imperialista mundial. Este acto se suma a los incontables asesinatos de población negra en los EEUU, que se perpetran desde la época de la esclavitud y que no han cesado hasta nuestros días. En el gobierno de Obama fueron decenas los asesinatos de jóvenes negros/as que hicieron recordar hechos similares llevados a cabo en los años 50 y 60 del siglo XX. La respuesta fue una rápida irrupción del movimiento negro a lo largo y ancho del país, del mismo modo en que se desarrollan en estos momentos amplias manifestaciones que demuestran que la población está harta de la violencia e impunidad policial. Fue incendiada por los/as manifestantes la jefatura de policía de Minneapolis y atacados varios vehículos, hechos de acción directa se llevan a cabo en diversas ciudades con enfrentamientos con la policía, e incluso Trump ha dado orden de que el Ejército salga a la calle. El racismo, elemento estructural en la sociedad capitalista, especialmente en la norteamericana, está intacto lamentablemente, pero también la resistencia y lucha del pueblo negro y de los pobres del norte.

Nous condamnons le meurtre de George Floyd par la police de Minneapolis, marquant un acte raciste de plus au sein de la première puissance impérialiste mondiale. Cet acte vient s'ajouter aux innombrables meurtres dans la population noire aux États-Unis, qui ont été perpétrés depuis l'époque de l'esclavage et n'ont pas cessé jusqu'à ce jour. Sous l'administration Obama, des dizaines de meurtres de jeunes femmes et de jeunes homme noires ont rappelé les événements similaires des années 1950 et 1960.

Wir verurteilen den feigen Mord an George Floyd durch die Hände der Polizeibeamt*innen von Minneapolis scharf. Er stellt einen weiteren rassistischen Akt im Herzen einer imperialistischen Weltmacht dar. Dieses Ereignis reiht sich ein in die zahllosen Morde an People of Color und der afro-stämmigen Bevölkerung in den Vereinigten Staaten, die seit den Tagen der Sklaverei weitergehen und immer noch nicht aufgehört haben. Während der Regierung Obamas gab es Dutzende von Morden an jungen Schwarzen, was an ähnliche rassistische Zeiten in den 1950er und 1960er Jahren erinnert.

Tutto il nostro supporto alle organizzazioni anarchiche Condanniamo il vile assassinio di George Floyd per mano dei poliziotti di Minneapolis, un altro atto razzista nel cuore di una potenza imperialista mondiale. Un ennesimo caso che si aggiunge all'innumerevole numero di uccisioni di persone di colore e della popolazione afro-americana perpretrate negli Stati Uniti, che continua dai tempi della schiavitù e non si è mai fermato: anche durante il governo di Obama ci sono state decine di uccisioni di giovani neri, come nei tempi razzisti degli anni Cinquanta e Sessanta.

popullism.jpg imageWhat is authoritarian populism and why should it be combated? Jun 02 19:13 by Shawn Hattingh 0 comments

The rise of an authoritarian populist politics, which presents itself as against the “Establishment,”” for the “common” people and “anti-globalisation,” is happening worldwide — and there are dangerous signs in South Africa. The populist upsurge sees voters reject big, established parties that embraced neo-liberalism after the economic crisis of 2007, in the context of a retreating working class and left. The author argues that the solution is to build from below for a new society beyond the state, class rule and capitalism based on self-management and production for need.

Anche se numerosi presidi propugnano e sponsorizzano la DaD. E persino qualche collega "fanatica".

drivingtothefuture.gif imageModes of politics at a distance from the state May 19 05:12 by Lucien van der Walt 0 comments

The crisis of the statist politics that dominated working-class politics -- social democracy, Marxism-Leninism, and anti-imperialist nationalism -- and the rise of neoliberalism, has aided the rediscovery of society-centred, anti-capitalist forms of bottom-up change “at a distance” from the state. This article critically assess the three main modes of “at a distance” politics: “outside-but-with” the state, which combines using the state with popular movements;  “outside-and-despite” the state, aiming at disintegrating the system by building alternatives in its cracks; and “outside-and-against” the state, associated with anarchism/ syndicalism, rejects the state for building autonomous working class counter-power that can resist, then defeat, state and capital. While each mode has limits, the anarchist/ syndicalist approach is arguably the most convincing, and its implications are serious. And it directs militants to work within the mass movements of the popular classes

Tenho de admitir, Bolsonaro é muito bom no que se propõe a fazer: desgoverno, tumulto no país e desinformação na sociedade. Ele é o que é, e sua existência plena é isso mesmo. Nem mais, nem menos, “taóquei!”. Ele e sua prole não se pretendem governantes, o ato de governo é como se fosse um condomínio e, infelizmente, o síndico é o próprio Jair Messias, e não Tim Maia. Nesse condomínio, a maior parte dos subsíndicos se comporta mais como xerifes de galeria do que como habitantes de um mesmo espaço. Ao contrário do que seria esperado, o síndico de discurso autoritário não é centralizador nem tem pulso forte ou mão de ferro. Ninguém pode aparecer mais do que ele e, menos ainda, assumir atos de responsabilidade. Esse síndico não faz nada e não deixa ninguém fazer muito. Não se mete com o tesoureiro, embora lembre a todo o momento que até esse pode ser demitido.

Τέτοιες μέθοδοι εκπαίδευσης, που ουσιαστικά βοηθούν την παιδική ποιότητα και τη φιλοδοξία της γνώσης, θα αναπτύξουν μια γενιά με υγιή πνευματική ανεξαρτησία. Θα παράγουν άντρες και γυναίκες ικανούς, σύμφωνα με τον Francisco Ferrer, “να εξελίσσονται χωρίς να σταματούν, να καταστρέφουν και να ανανεώνουν το περιβάλλον τους χωρίς διακοπή, ανανεώνοντας και τους εαυτούς τους · πάντοτε έτοιμοι να δεχτούν το καλύτερο, ευτυχισμένοι με το θρίαμβο των νέων ιδεών, που φιλοδοξούν να ζήσουν πολλές ζωές σε μια μόνο”. Σε αυτούς τους άνδρες και γυναίκες στηρίζεται η ελπίδα της ανθρώπινης προόδου. Σε αυτούς ανήκει το μέλλον. Και είναι, σε πολύ σημαντικό βαθμό, με τη δική μας δικαιοδοσία που πρέπει να ανοίξουμε το δρόμο. Ο θάνατος του Francisco Ferrer ήταν μάταιος, η αγανάκτηση, η συμπάθειά μας και ο θαυμασμός μας άχρηστοι, εκτός αν μεταφράσουμε τα ιδεώδη του μαρτυρικού εκπαιδευτικού στην πράξη και στη ζωή και έτσι προωθήσουμε τον ανθρώπινο αγώνα για φώτιση και ελευθερία.

Pertenecemos a una Europa que desoye las llamadas a compartir la deuda, a la construcción de una renta básica de ciudadanía, a una profundización democrática y a una apuesta federal para el continente, que sólo puede estar basada en la convergencia hacia arriba de las condiciones de vida de los trabajadores europeos.
