Charlie Hebdo, la tristeza y la cólera

Declaración de Alternativa Libertaria (Francia)
Cierto, Alternativa Libertaria está comprometida en la lucha contra todas las fuerzas retrógradas. Pero esta lucha no puede ser llevada en el marco de una "unidad nacional" simbólica, con responsables políticos que, a izquierda o derecha, han atizado el odio y son en parte responsables del caos actual.

n the Wake of Charlie Hebdo, Free Speech Does Not Mean Freedom From Criticism

Anarkismo (en) - Thu, 01/08/2015 - 08:23
On Wednesday morning, the French satirical paper Charlie Hebdo was attacked by three masked gunmen, armed with kalashnikovs, who stormed the building and killed ten of its staff and two police officers. The gunmen are currently understood to be Muslim extremists. This attack came minutes after the paper tweeted this drawing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.

Incomplete memoirs of early Egyptian anarchism

Anarkismo (en) - Thu, 01/08/2015 - 03:28
NOTE by Lucien van der Walt: English translation by Nestor McNab of three parts of the historical memoirs of I. U. Parrini – one of the initiators of the anarchist movement in Italy and Egypt, from the days of the First International – which were published in Italian in “La Protesta Umana” of San Francisco, nos. 36, 38 and 40 (21 Nov. and 26 Dec. 1903, and 9 Jan. 1904 respectively). This material is provided for purposes of historical recovery: it must be noted that Parrini was (according to Tony Gorman's 2010 overview of Egyptian anarchism) a "staunch anti-organisationalist, ... notorious for his uncompromising style and ... a persistent obstacle to greater cooperation among anarchists. Not until after his death in 1906 was a national program of action agreed which provided a solid basis for collaboration within the Egyptian movement." His current was in constant conflict with the growing, eventually ascendant, anarcho-syndicalists. Nonetheless, these memoirs -- despite their polemical quality and imbalances -- are a valuable testimony, deserving of wider circulation, not least for their insider view, from the perspective of one current in the movement.

The material is sourced from Leonardo Bettini, "Bibliografia dell'anarchismo, volume 2, tomo 2: periodici e numeri unici anarchici in lingua italiana pubblicati all'estero (1872-1971)" (CP editrice, Firenze, 1976), translation by Nestor McNab. Via Lucien van der Walt.

Je ne suis pas Charlie (Yo no soy Charlie)

Anarkismo - Wed, 01/07/2015 - 18:46
Parto aclarando antes que nada, que considero una atrocidad el ataque a las oficinas de la revista satírica Charlie Hebdo en París y que no creo que, en ninguna circunstancia, sea justificable convertir a un periodista, por dudosa que sea su calidad profesional, en un objetivo militar. Miles de personas, comprensiblemente afectadas por este atentado, han circulado mensajes en francés diciendo “Je Suis Charlie” (Yo soy Charlie), como si este mensaje fuera el último grito en la defensa de la libertad. Pues bien, yo no soy Charlie. No me identifico con la representación degradante y “caricaturesca” que hace del mundo islámico, en plena época de la llamada “Guerra contra el Terrorismo”, con toda la carga racista y colonialista que esto conlleva. Europa se consume en una espiral de odio xenófobo, de islamofobia, de anti-semitismo (los palestinos son semitas, de hecho) y este ambiente se hace cada vez más irrespirable. Los musulmanes ya son los judíos en la Europa del siglo XXI, y los partidos neo-nazis se están haciendo nuevamente respetables 80 años después gracias a este repugnante sentimiento. Por todo esto, pese a la repulsión que me causan los ataques de París, Je ne suis pas Charlie.

On Charlie Hebdo

Anarkismo (en) - Wed, 01/07/2015 - 14:11
Many journalists at the offices of Charlie Hebdo have been murdered by bampots brandishing what appear to be machine guns at close range. It is too soon to have a complete, coherent political narrative of these killings. All one can have at this point are the correct but platitudinous points about there being no justification for this, that all attacks on journalists are abhorrent, that freedom of speech must be defended to the last drop of blood, and so on. If you really need that sermon, you’re in the wrong place.

Libcom.org News - Wed, 01/07/2015 - 13:27

After police and security attacked a Free Education sit in on Dec 3rd 2014, students at Warwick responded with a 1000 strong demo, followed by an 8 day occupation of university conference facilities - only leaving when the university got an injunction, rendering the occupation illegal.

The university has not responded their demands by the deadline they gave (6th Jan 2015) and so they have declared their intention to continue the campaign.

Για τις εισβολές στις 16 Δεκεμβρη

Anarkismo - Tue, 01/06/2015 - 06:57
Ανακοίνωση της ΕΣΕ Θεσσαλονίκης
Την Τρίτη 16 Δεκέμβρη η “Επιχείρηση Πανδώρα” που ξεκίνησαν οι Ισπανικές αρχές προκάλεσε μάλλον θαυμασμό στην ελληνική αστυνομία για τα κατορθώματα των Ισπανών συναδέλφων τους και σκέφτηκαν να τους μιμηθούνε. Τις μεσημεριανές ώρες τις ίδιας ημέρας η ασφάλεια Θεσσαλονίκης πραγματοποίησε εισβολές σε τρία σπίτια συντρόφων, ένας από τους οποίους μέλος της Ελευθεριακής Συνδικαλιστικής Ένωσης. Αφού ολοκλήρωσε τις “έρευνές” και την χαρτογράφηση χωρίς να βρει στοιχεία αποχώρησε πιθανόν απογοητευμένη αφού δε μπόρεσε να σταθεί στο ύψος των περιστάσεων που δημιούργησαν οι συνάδελφοι στην Βαρκελώνη.

Colin Ward's Anarchism

Anarkismo (en) - Mon, 01/05/2015 - 23:18
What Can We Learn from Colin Ward?
Colin Ward was one of the most influential English-writing anarchists for 60 years. Anarchists of every sort can still learn much from him. Yet revolutionary anarchists have criticized him for being gradualist and reformist.
