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’

Chi erano gli Enragés, chi faceva parte del movimento e quali obiettivi si proponevano di realizzare? Mio obiettivo è di fare una breve descrizione del loro pensiero politico lasciando volutamente senza risposta la domanda che da decenni gli storici si pongono: il movimento degli Enragés può essere considerato un predecessore della corrente anarchica? read full story / add a comment

The United Front tactic – aimed at uniting masses of workers in action and winning Communist leadership for the working class – was adopted as policy by the Communist International (Comintern) in 1921 and will be discussed later in this series. However, there are important examples of working class unity in action which predate Comintern policy and bear relevance to the united fronts discussion. One often-cited example is the united front to defend the gains of the February Revolution from a military coup in Russia in 1917, which will be discussed in the next article in this series.

Before looking at this, however, there is another example of proletarian unity in action – that didn’t seek to win Communist leadership – which warrants attention; that of a revolutionary worker-peasant alliance. This conception of united front action found expression in Italy’s anti-militarist “red blocs” and it is to these that we now turn.

In 1871, Karl Marx wrote that governments use war as a fraud, a ‘humbug, intended to defer the struggle of the classes’. In 1914, that fraud was so effective that not only most workers but also most Marxists supported their respective nation’s rush to war. Ever since then, governments have used war to defer class struggle and prevent revolution. But this strategy cannot last forever.[1] read full story / add a comment

Il 7 giugno 1914, ad Ancona si svolgono dei disordini tra lavoratori anconetani (principalmente portuari e ferrovieri appartenenti a sindacati autonomi di indirizzo socialista ed anarchico) e forze dell'ordine, schierate per difendere la parata militare celebrativa dello Statuto Albertino. Ancona è all'epoca una città che ha già avuto numerose esperienze di rivolte e sollevamenti popolari: dai moti del pane del 1898 agli scioperi del 1913. In quel periodo inoltre si assisteva alla creazione di un fronte comune di diversi movimenti e sindacati, uniti dall'antimilitarismo. L'opposizione alle politiche di guerra non era una lotta puramente ideologica. read full story / add a comment

The origin of May Day, International Workers Day, lies in the historic fight for decent working hours that culminated in the execution of four trade unionists in Chicago, the United States, in November 1887. This was a decisive moment in the struggle for a just society through militant trade unionism. In Nigeria, May Day was first declared in 1980 by the People’s Redemption Party (PRP)-led government of the late Abubakar Rimi in Kano State. read full story / add a comment
