Review: The Method of Freedom

Anarchist Writers - Sat, 08/30/2014 - 10:44

Read this book.

Perhaps I need to write more? For those who do not know, Errico Malatesta (1853-1932) was one of anarchism’s greatest activists and thinkers for over 60 years. He joined the First International in 1871 and became an anarchist after meeting Bakunin in 1872. He spent most of his life in exile from Italy, helping to build unions in Argentina in the late 1880s and taking an active part during the two Red Years after the war when Italy was on the verge of revolution (the authorities saw the threat and imprisoned him and other leading anarchists before a jury dismissed all charges). Playing a key role in numerous debates within the movement – on using elections, participation in the labour movement, the nature of social revolution, syndicalism and Platformism (to name just a few), he saw the rise and failure of the Second International, then the Third before spending the last years of his life under house arrest in Mussolini’s Italy.

Il vigile del fuoco

Anarkismo - Sat, 08/30/2014 - 08:12
Il peggio è ormai passato. È una frase che sento ripetere dall’autunno del 2007, qualche mese dopo l’estate in cui la caduta delle quotazioni azionarie di Wall Street segnava la fine della bolla immobiliare americana e l’inizio della peggiore crisi economica dopo quella degli anni ’30 del secolo scorso.
Davvero c’è una luce in fondo al tunnel?
Per formarsi un’opinione motivata, è opportuno comprendere le diverse dinamiche che caratterizzano i mercati finanziari e il sistema produttivo.

Eleições presidenciais brasileiras e as mazelas deste processo democrático

Anarkismo - Fri, 08/29/2014 - 22:06
Bruno Lima Rocha, 28 de agosto de 2014

No meio da corrida eleitoral de 1º turno, onde a 7ª economia do mundo vai decidir seu destino consultando a vontade e desinformação da 79ª sociedade mundial em índice de IDH, é preciso fazer uma série de reflexões. Para tal, precisamos ir além da denúncia do esvaziamento da democracia em sua versão liberal e indireta. Entendo que vivemos um problema estruturante, que tem relação direta com dois fenômenos. O primeiro passa pela individualização do cotidiano, com tarefas que se multiplicam e tempos esgotados. O capitalismo em sua era informacional não dá tempo hábil para a vida coletiva e menos ainda para as experiências políticas massivas. Quando isto ocorre, temos uma “crise”, como em junho de 2013. Saudável “crise” por sinal.

Perspectivas iníciales de la candidatura de Marina Silva y de la Coalición liderada por el PSB luego de la muerte de Eduardo Campos

Anarkismo - Fri, 08/29/2014 - 10:37
Bruno Lima Rocha*

En este texto compilo los análisis que publiqué en las redes sociales que a su vez son una compilación de entrevistas y participaciones en los medios comerciales brasileros que vengo realizando luego del anuncio del desastre aéreo y el consecuente fallecimiento de Eduardo Campos, ex gobernador del Estado de Pernambuco y candidato a presidente por el Partido Socialista Brasilero hasta el suceso que además hizo víctimas a su comitiva y a la tripulación de la aeronave. El accidente ocurrió en la ciudad de Santos, litoral del Estado de San Pablo el 13 de agosto de 2014. Nadie esperaba nada parecido. Su candidata a vicepresidente, Marina Silva es neopentecostal y ex ministra de Medio Ambiente de Lula. Dejó el gobierno en 2010 y en las elecciones presidenciales de ese año se enfrentó a Dilma Rousseff y alcanzó la tercera posición con más de veinte millones de votos. Ahora, como candidata a presidente del PSB, partido que era parte de la base del gobierno central hasta el fin de 2013, representa una preferencia de votos como alternativa al lulismo. Vale una observación con tono de autocrítica, nunca anticipamos un escenario con el abandono de algún candidato, ni menos a partir de un desastre como éste. Todo analista debería tener este escenario en cuenta, aunque con menores posibilidades.

La possibilità di una divisione dell'Iraq

Anarkismo - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 11:50
Alcune settimane fa, in uno dei nostri comunicati noi del Kurdistan Anarchists Forum esprimemmo le nostre opinioni ed il nostro atteggiamento sullo Stato Islamico di Iraq e Siria (Isis), sui suoi attacchi in Iraq e sullo scontro politico-religioso per il potere tra Sciiti e Sunniti. In questo nostro comunicato presentiamo le nostre posizioni sulla situazione politica, sulla possibilità di una divisione dell'Iraq e sulla guerra in corso. [http://www.anarkismo.net/article/27319]

Legalise Cannabis protest marches through Dublin August 2014

Anarchist Writers - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 11:04

Saturday evening August 23 saw over a 1000 people take part in a demonstration in Dublin demanding the legalisation of Cannabis organised by Legalise Cannabis Ireland. The front banner read ‘Medication - Taxation - Industrialisation - Civil Liberties’ and “We will raise awareness and demand change to Irish legislation for the benefit of every person in Ireland. The time is now to end the hypocrisy’

The message of the march as expressed by the front banner was very much a demand for capitalism as normal rather than the gangster capitalism of illegality. That’s obviously a very limited demand - indeed it’s already been won or partly won in a number of European countries and more recently states in the USA.

The possibility of breaking up Iraq

Anarkismo (en) - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 03:15
A few weeks ago, in one of our bulletins, we (the Kurdistan Anarchists Forum) expressed our opinions and attitudes regarding the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isis), its attacks on Iraq, and the religious and political struggle between the Shia and Sunni for domination. Here in this statement, we put forward our views about the political situation, the possibility of a divided Iraq, and the current war. [http://www.anarkismo.net/article/27326]
