Over the walls of nationalisms and wars: statement of participants of 8th Balkan Anarchist Bookfair

Libcom.org News - Wed, 10/15/2014 - 05:20
Ruined_Stari_Most_in_Mostar_in_1998.png

This text is the collective statement of the participants of the 8th Balkan Anarchist Bookfair (BASK) in Mostar which took place at the beginning of September, 2014. It is an important statement in light of recent and seemingly rising apologetics among anarchists and the anti-authoritarian left regarding nationalism.

Nationalism is always an ideology that reproduces the State, a system of repression and exploitation, and pits the exploited and oppressed against one another.

La Violencia Estructural Oligárquica, Freno para la Paz en Colombia

Anarkismo - Tue, 10/14/2014 - 15:01
Artículo publicado en el nº62 de Pueblos – Revista de Información y Debate, tercer trimestre de 2014.
La historia contemporánea de Colombia nos muestra una presencia constante de la violencia y la guerra permeando las relaciones políticas e influyendo en la dinámica económica y social del país. Durante casi dos siglos, la lucha por el poder político se hizo por la vía de la violencia armada: el oponente era, ante todo, un enemigo al que derrotar y, de ser posible, destruir y desaparecer físicamente. El momento actual es clave como posibilidad de romper con el hilo histórico de violencia que ha impuesto el modelo oligárquico como opción para la acción política.

Projects of Death in Mexico’s Sierra Norte - Community and Environment Under Attack

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Tue, 10/14/2014 - 13:03

OLINTLA is a small village in the Sierra Norte, a remote, mountainous region to the east of Mexico City. The landscape there is dramatic, green and beautiful, mostly sunlit jungle, rivers and wildlife. The hillsides are occasionally populated by farming towns and villages, mainly indigenous communities whose way of life is constantly threatened. In recent years, the Mexican state has accelerated plans for the development of a vast hydroelectric power plant in the area, directly impacting the people in Olintla and about a dozen or so neighbouring communities. What appears on the surface to be a ‘green energy’ project is in fact closely bound up with community displacement and the aggressive extraction of local oil and gas reserves, primarily to the detriment of the region’s water resources and wider capacity to sustain life. Unfortunately, Olintla is far from an atypical case but represents how indigenous communities in Mexico, as in Latin America more generally, tend to bear the brunt of the state’s creation of opportunities for private capital accumulation, called ‘development’ by those in power and ‘projects of death’ by the communities affected.[1]

Anarchism, Oppression & Exploitation - WSM position paper

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Tue, 10/14/2014 - 10:25

1. The WSM Constitution’s core point of unity number 7 states:

“We actively oppose all manifestations of prejudice within the workers' movement and society in general and we work alongside those struggling against racism, sexism, [religious] sectarianism and homophobia as a priority. We see the success of a revolution and the successful elimination of these oppressions after the revolution being determined by the building of such struggles in the pre-revolutionary period. The methods of struggle that we promote are a preparation for the running of society along anarchist and communist lines after the revolution.”

Brasil y la Carrera Electoral en la segunda vuelta – 1

Anarkismo - Mon, 10/13/2014 - 22:52
El avance del voto conservador y la difícil capacidad de respuesta del movimiento popular brasileño
Bruno Lima Rocha*

El país líder de América Latina, de Mercosur y de los acuerdos diplomáticos latinoamericanos se ve hoy en una encrucijada. Existe un consenso desde el medio hacia abajo de la pirámide social brasileña. Nuestro votante medio admite de hecho un retroceso en términos de políticas públicas, no tolerando un discurso que implica la reducción del papel del Estado en la economía y en el logro de los avances en las condiciones materiales de la vida. Marina Silva, exministra del PT para el Medio Ambiente (en el primer gobierno y hasta la mitad del segundo gobierno de Lula) no pudo explicar cómo propone una "nueva política" y tuvo la participación de economistas neoliberales en su equipo formulador del programa de gobierno. El postulado por el PSDB, el senador Aécio Neves y su partido han tenido –y tienen– para explicar (y hacer creer) que en ningún caso irán a desmantelar el aparato de las políticas sociales del lulismo.
