Ghana, West Africa, was a British colony called "Gold Coast" until 1957. It became the first independent country in "black" Africa after reforms and struggles in the 1940s and 1950s. The new president, the brilliant Kwame Nkrumah, and his Convention People's Party (CPP), had fought for independence. Now they aimed at major changes in the society, even speaking of socialism. And Nkrumah proposed a united African government for the continent: Pan-Africanism.

But by the mid-1960s, hopes were fading. There were good reforms in education and services and self- respect for Africans that helped remove colonialism's damages. But the CPP has become a dictatorship, with a personality cult around Nkrumah. Unions and struggles were suppressed. The economy was in trouble. A new elite hijacked independence and resources. When the military seized power in 1966, people celebrated in the streets. Today Ghana is one of the poorest African countries.

What went wrong and what can we, anarchists in Africa, learn from this experience? read full story / add a comment

Μια σύντομη περιγραφή των κοινωνικών συνθηκών στη μετεμφυλιακή Ισπανία που συνοδεύεται από μια σύντομη εξιστόρηση της γενικής απεργίας στη Βαρκελώνη του 1951. Τα γεγονότα της Βαρκελώνης οδήγησαν σε απεργίες σε όλη τη χώρα και σηματοδότησαν τη δυναμική επιστροφή της μαχητικότητας της εργατικής τάξης της Ισπανίας μετά από πάνω από μια δεκαετία υπό το καθεστώς Φράνκο. read full story / add a comment

El objetivo del análisis que se desarrollará a continuación es el de proveer una aproximación a algunos procesos centrales de la historia reciente tanto mundial, regional como local. Entendemos que como militantes anarquistas debemos tener claro cuál es el contexto en el que vivimos para poder intervenir en las luchas sociales en sintonía con el mismo y potenciar así nuestras prácticas. read full story / add a comment

The aftereffects of the Second World War are still being felt. While very popular, it was an inter-imperialist war, a struggle for world domination. But it also included popular struggles against fascism, for national independence, democratic rights, and the possibility of socialist revolution. At their best, anarchists and other revolutionary socialists looked for ways to be part of this working class and people’s war.” Analyzing the war, and thinking through its issues, may help to prepare revolutionary anarchists for future upheavals.

Although commended by no less a luminary than Sir Ian Kershaw on the dust-jacket, Richard J. Evans' name is not one that stands in the first ranks of historians of Nazism and the ultimately (self)destructive spiral of accelerating radicalism that led to the Holocaust. To be fair, it is tough to distinguish oneself in this field because the rise of such an implacable evil in the heart of what in many respects was the most "civilised" of Western countries poses the greatest riddle of the 20th Century – and has thus been exhaustively treated by more works than any other single historical topic. read full story / add a comment

Μακεδονία-Θράκη 1903. Η οθωμανική τουρκική αυτοκρατορία βρισκόταν σε στάδιο παρακμής. Για αιώνες, οι Αρχές της κυβερνούσαν με σκληρότητα, επιβάλλοντας φόρους και άλλες υποχρεώσεις, αλλά στις περισσότερες περιπτώσεις επιτρέποντας στους υπηκόους να μιλούν τη γλώσσα τους και να λατρεύουν τη θρησκεία τους. Τώρα, όμως, ήταν μια εποχή κρίσιμη. Τα σύνορα της Αυτοκρατορίας δέχονταν πιέσεις, και η οθωμανική κυριαρχία γινόταν ολοένα και πιο σκληρή και καταπιεστική. Το φάσμα των απελευθερωτικών αγώνων στοίχειωνε τις φθίνουσες οθωμανικές κατακτήσεις στα Νότια Βαλκάνια. Βίαιες εξεγέρσεις διαδέχονταν η μία την άλλη, από τη μια γενιά στην επόμενη. read full story / add a comment

W.E.B. Du Bois was an important African-American scholar and activist. In the 60s there was an effort to create a memorial for him in his home town in Massachusetts. This met with a great deal of right-wing resistance. The history of this controversy shines light on the broader issues of racism and Cold War anti-communism. read full story / add a comment

Today the terms “populism” and “workerism” are widely thrown about in South African political circles. Often, these terms and others (“syndicalism,” “ultra-left,” “counter-revolutionary,” “anti-majoritarian” …) have no meaning: they are just labels used to silence critics. SA Communist Party (SACP) leaders do this often. But in the 1980s, “populism” and “workerism” referred to two rival positions battling for the soul of the militant unions.

These debates, thirty years on, remain very relevant: let us revisit them, and learn. Today’s radical National Union of Metalworkers of SA (NUMSA) was part of the “workerist” camp, while its key rival, the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) was identified with “populism.” The early battles over the direction of the Congress of SA Trade Unions (COSATU) still echo today, although there is no longer a clear “workerist” camp. read full story / add a comment
Hector Pieterson (1964 – June 16, 1976). Killed at age 12 when the police opened fire on protesting students. 16 June stands as a symbol of resistance to the brutality of the apartheid government.

The massacre of South African school children in 1976 – for protesting for instruction in their native languages and for a proper curriculum – continues to be remembered and to influence us today. It showed the brutality of the apartheid state and it left scars still felt by people today.

The challenges faced by youth today are different to that experienced in 1976. This does not mean everything has changed. We need to look to history to learn about and not to repeat mistakes made. But we also look to history to provide us with inspiration. We need to revisit the spirit of the youth of 1976 and copy their courage – to overcome these issues facing our young people today. We need to be the change that we want to see. read full story / add a comment

L’année 1974 est marquée par des mouvements revendicatifs dans les secteurs des services. Successivement, dans les banques, aux PTT, plus modestement à la SNCF, ces grèves vont faire souffler une brise de créativité et d’auto-organisation directement liée à la force de projection de Mai 68. Mais c’est bien la grève des PTT, par sa capacité à bousculer la marche normale de la société, qui sera le pivot de cette année sociale. read full story / add a comment

In the October Revolution of 1917, the Bolshevik Party, together with other revolutionaries, overthrew the Provisional Government established in February and – together, initially, with left Social Revolutionaries – seized power. How did the Bolsheviks – a minority just eight months earlier, when the February Revolution overthrew the Tsar and established the Provisional Government – come to power so quickly? How did this small force emerge from relative obscurity to win large sections of the working class to its programme and take power? Herein lies the root and essence of United Front policy in a traditional Marxist sense. First published in issue 88 of Workers World News Part 1: NUMSA and the ‘United Front Against Neoliberalism’
Part 2: Anti-militarist United Fronts and Italy’s “Red week”, 1914
