In the first week of Donald Trump’s presidency, there were two important mobilizations that expressed radically different views on reproductive rights. The Women’s March on Washington, which took place the day after Trump’s inauguration, has been hailed as one of the largest mobilizations in US history. What began as a spontaneous call quickly ballooned into a movement that tapped into growing anxieties over the intentions of the new administration. The march drew some 500,000 to rally in Washington DC while sister marches were held across the country and even worldwide. One week later, another mobilization took place: the annual March for Life. While significantly smaller, this march still drew many attendees who were energized by celebrity speakers from the Trump administration. At this point, there is no certainty that the Women’s March will evolve into an actual social movement. This much is clear: the Women’s March represents a political opening to rebuild a revolutionary feminist movement (in conjunction with other developing struggles) that advances demands to improve the lives of working people and embraces conflict with the liberal, capitalist character of the feminist movement of the day.

Dos importantes movilizaciones ocurrieron en la primera semana de la presidencia de Donald Trump, expresión de dos visiones radicalmente distintas sobre los derechos reproductivos. La Marcha de Mujeres en Washington, sucedida al día siguiente de la toma de poder de Trump, ha sido calificada como una de las mayores manifestaciones en la historia de EE.UU. Lo que comenzó como un llamado espontáneo creció rápidamente hasta convertirse en un movimiento que puso de manifiesto la creciente aprehensión sobre los planes del nuevo gobierno. La marcha congregó alrededor de 500,000 personas en Washington D.C., con marchas paralelas a lo largo del país y alrededor del planeta. Una semana después, tuvo lugar una movilización muy distinta: la Marcha Anual Por la Vida. Aunque considerablemente menor, ésta congregó a un buen número de personas, incluyendo a célebres personeros del gobierno de Trump. En este momento no existe ninguna certeza de que la Marcha de Mujeres vaya a transformarse en un movimiento social legítimo. Lo que sí resulta claro es esto: la Marcha de Mujeres representa una oportunidad política para reconstruir un movimiento feminista libertario (en conjunto con otras luchas en incipiente desarrollo) que plantee demandas enfocadas en mejorar las vidas de los trabajadores y oposición al carácter liberal y capitalista del movimiento feminista actual.

This past week on January 11th, the body of Michael Israel, Sacramento organizer and late YPG volunteer, finally arrived in California from overseas. His journey back into the United States took over a month, and began in Syria with a ceremony and mourning procession to send him off. His California community has been awaiting his arrival, and organized a funeral procession of their own to welcome Michael home for the last time. Sacramento and Bay Area activists, individuals from the California Kurdish community, and Michael’s friends and family all came together to accompanied him from the San Francisco Airport to Lodi, his hometown. Over fifty people took part in the long-distance procession, traveling in around 20 cars, vans, and buses festooned with YPG and anti-fascist flags, flowers, and pictures of Michael. read full story / add a comment

En el municipio de Hopelchén en Campeche, la comunidad de San Franciso Suc-Tuc ha decidido regirse por usos y costumbres. ¿Qué significa esto?, los días 9, 10 y 11 de enero, tras una jornada de históricas asambleas deliberativas, los pobladores eligieron a un Consejo de Gobierno autónomo y a tres representantes que fungirán como tesorero, secretario y comisario, todos ellos, desconcentrados y revocables para la administración que se plantee en futuras asambleas, una diferencia radical de lo que enmarca el viejo orden constitucional.

Ahora, velarán por la gestión autónoma del territorio y la vida social en pos de los intereses comunes, y ya no por los que el Estado-Ayuntamiento siempre ha transformado en negocio y lucro de unos cuantos. read full story / add a comment

IWW GDC Speaker on Street March Against Killer Cops

The General Defense Committee of the Industrial Workers World (IWW) has become an important pole of struggle for pro-working-class revolutionaries in the Twin Cities. While active on a number of different fronts it is the participation of the General Defense Committee (GDC) in the year-long struggle against police killings and brutality in the Twin Cities that has largely led to the significant growth of the organization. The GDC has grown to approximately 90 dues-paying members in Minnesota, and has several active working-groups. In the wake of Trump’s election victory, Wobblies (1) and others across the country have begun establishing their own GDC locals – strongly influenced by the Twin Cities’ model. read full story / add a comment

La historia del Estado de Guerrero, en México, encuentra su hilo conductor en la violencia, en particular la violencia política. La actitud autoritaria y represiva de las élites locales, tratando de mantener las grandes desigualdades que atraviesan a la región, se ha enfrentado continuamente con los intentos organizativos rebeldes de las clases populares. read full story / add a comment

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.

Once it became clear that Trump was going to become the president of the USA, my Facebook feed became cluttered with attempts to understand how that could possibly happen.  How could a white supremacist, misogynist and utterly transparent snake oil salesman accumulate so many votes?  Those on the left both inside and outside the borders of the USA struggled to understand what had happened. [Listen to the audio of this entire article] A common conclusion in too many of these pieces is that the left needs to reach out, and listen to the concerns of, those who voted for him as a priority.  In a similar fashion to how sections of the left evaluated Brexit, they see a working class anti-establishment rebellion in the Trump vote from what they term the ‘white working class’. They believe that component was won by Trump because it has been neglected by the left - often, they will assert, because the rest of the left was distracted by what they call identity politics. This is a simple explanatory story that is particularly attractive to those sections of the left that have a nostalgic yearning for an imagined past of pure class struggle, shorn of internal concerns around oppression.  But the concept of masses of otherwise progressive working class voters opting for Trump on economic grounds is a myth.  The attractiveness of that myth and its promotion has more to do with the hostility of that section of the left towards the influence of intersectional feminism than anything more substantive.  That hostility has caused them to seek out anecdotes and exceptional regions and present them as the typical story that defines the election just as liberal Hillary Clinton campaigners have focused in on Facebook false news stories as the cause of her defeat. read full story / add a comment

Η στρατηγική μας στηρίζεται στην ενότητα των εν λόγω άμεσων δράσεων, καθώς η κάλπη δεν αποτελεί άμυνα ενάντια στο φασισμό και το μίσος ούτε συνιστά κάτι τέτοιο το Δημοκρατικό Κόμμα. Βλέπουμε ότι οι νίκες που έχουμε κερδίσει μέσα από σκληρούς αγώνες θα μπορούσαν να αντιστραφούν. Η μόνη μας ευκαιρία είναι να δημιουργήσουμε ένα κίνημα που να στηρίζεται στην εξουσία των ανθρώπων. Μια στρατηγική για να υπερασπίσουμε τις κοινότητές μας και να αμφισβητήσουμε τον Τραμπ αρχίζει με και από εμάς, τους εκμεταλλευόμενους εργαζόμενους. Μαζί κρατάμε τη λύση στο ζήτημα Τραμπ και στα μεγαλύτερα προβλήματα του καπιταλισμού, την πατριαρχία και τη λευκή υπεροχή. read full story / add a comment
