Workers’ Self-Directed Enterprises: A Revolutionary Program

Fri, 04/25/2014 - 21:43
Industrial Democracy and Revolution
There is a lot of evidence that working people can manage workplaces, enterprises, and industries. What kind of self-managed economy would work best? How could it be achieved: by reform or revolution? How could self-management be integrated into the revolutionary program?

War preparations between Ukraine and Russia – Show or reality?

Fri, 04/25/2014 - 10:31
Rumours of war resound noisily in Europe again, cannons are loaded, fighter-bombers are packed with murderous bullets and bombs, missiles point their nuclear warheads at their future objectives: after wars that caused unrest locally and according to circumstances in Yugoslavia, Georgia, Chechnya, Dagestan, Ossetia etc. during this last quarter of century, preconditions for a new war have been intensively maturing in the Ukraine now, a war much more extensive and with unimaginable international effects.

The Democratic Association of People in Patras

Fri, 04/25/2014 - 08:03
And the newspaper “Hellenic Democracy”
In this article, Troaditis investigates the Democratic Association of People, that was actually the first anarchist organised collective appeared in Greece. A collective that obtained regular contacts with the Jura Federation and agreed with their positions. This was happened in 1875 in Patras, in Western Peloponnese, a city of a big importance, as it was one of the gates to the then Greece from Europe. Is was a significant harbour where a small but active proletariat — especially consisted of the sultana-box makers and other workers- and where the anarchist ideas found a fertile soil to be developed further.

Palestine-Israel, Though it seems lot of things are going to change soon - it is in a slow motion*

Tue, 04/22/2014 - 16:26
The prolonged status quo between the Israeli ruling elite and the Palestinian elite reach a climax. Changes in the balances of power within the Israeli capitalist elite is still in slow motion, but you can feel the vibrations. The joint struggle of the Palestinian grass root activists and the Israeli radicals is not expanding, but the new wave of total refusnic military service of Israeli youth - which already passed the hundred seems promising. The joint struggle in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarah, South Hebron Hills, Arkib (within Israel) and other places from time to time keep the flame in spite of the harsh repression. The involvement of Israeli Jews and to a lesser measure international activists still prevent a massive bloody massacre of the unarmed Palestinian demonstrators.

Anarchist and international solidarity against Russian State repression

Wed, 04/16/2014 - 04:20
Days after the Sochi Olympic Games, in the course of which the dictatorial Russian government allowed multinationals firms and other States to satisfy their capitalist pretensions by muzzling opposition and banning demonstrations, the repression of anticapitalists, anarchists, trade-union activists, and the feminist and anti-homophobe movements is still going on.

Palestine-Israel The struggle and the joint struggle continue in spite of the stand still*

Mon, 04/14/2014 - 01:34
Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Qaddum, Ma'asara, Sheikh Jarrah, South of Hebron Hills
May be it is because the Arabic Spring and the wave in the developed countries raised too much the hopes for change followed by disillusions. May be it was (like the big wave in Israel that mobilized about 10% of the population) a kind of releasing pressure valve... The struggle still continue, but the number of participants diminished and the moral of those who continue is not high. The smaller flame of hope for a radical change in our tortured home land is nourished by the change in the imperial power balance, the gradual withdrawal of the US from the region and the increasing pressure for change by Europe with the B.D.S. at its front. But, the joint struggle continue, and the gradual bunt out of many of the old timer activists of the anarchists against the wall is partly replaced by the new wave of total refusnics of mandatory military service for high school graduates and the activists of the anarchist-communist Ahdut.

On Dogmatism

Mon, 04/07/2014 - 08:22
It was sent as a response to A. Floyd on Horizontalism
Dogmatism is a manifestation of theoretical and/or ideological deficiencies, such as idealism (metaphysics), sectarianism, elitism or followership. It’s a significant obstacle to working class emancipation, which we must identify and comprehend in order to combat it. There are several variants and expressions, including:

Palestine-Israel, The joint popular struggle continues to backdrop of "talks" that change nothing

Fri, 04/04/2014 - 06:23
The joint struggle continues; even many activists have been "burned out" while waiting for short-term gains and victories. The advances in the international arena are paradoxically reducing the flame of most people in spite of the increase in suppression efforts by the anxious settlers and the Israeli authorities. The hard core of the activists continue their struggle in spite of the increased suppression, encouraged by every small success, by every tear grenade returned to the harassers, by every failure to cut a demonstration short. Bil'in, Ni'lin, Nabi Saleh, Ma'sara, the South Hebron Hills, and Sheikh Jarrah continue the weekly demonstrations in a stubborn mood of "tsumud" (persistence) - the long, long refusal to yield to the expulsion-transfer of the Zionist settler project.

For Berkin Elvan

Thu, 03/13/2014 - 09:09
The name for riot
We have lost our Berkin. He was shot by police in Taksim riots while he was going to buy bread from the market. He was in his 15.

Turkish state is still terorizing the life. After the economic scandals of the government were come into open, they are raising the repression.

There has been clashes whole around Anatolia and Mesopotamia.

We won't forget our Berkin and we won't forgive.

This is the statement of Revolutionary Anarchist Action

Palestine-Israel, The more Israel is threatened by B.D.S. the more vicious is to the Palestinians*

Tue, 03/11/2014 - 13:19
The emergence of the B.D.S. finds its expressions in both the Israeli media, the ruling elite, and the medium level of the capitalists. The harassment of the Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, and Qaddum is not applied to Bil'in which is in the focus of international attention. It seems the state forces got specific orders to be much more "lenient" even with the stones throwing Shabab. Lot of the Israeli activists lost their persistence as the development on the ground is not expanding and the advance of the B.D.S. is too abstract for them. For many Israeli and the Palestinian activists the big picture is not clear enough and they do not feel that we are winning. They do not really feel the satisfaction from the fact that our joint struggle is the important leaning point the lever of the B.D.S. need for its success.

The Political Thought of Errico Malatesta

Sat, 03/08/2014 - 08:11
This text is divided into four main parts for the presentation of Malatesta’s political thought: a.) a brief description of the author’s life, the political environment in which he found himself and his main interlocutors; b.) a theoretical-epistemological discussion, which differentiates science from doctrine/ideology and, therefore, the methods of analysis and social theories of anarchism. A notion that will be applied to the discussion of Malatestan thought itself; c.) theoretical-methodological elements for social analysis; d.) conception of anarchism and strategic positions.

Statement of left and anarchist organizations about "Borotba" organization

Thu, 03/06/2014 - 03:19
We, the collectives and members of Ukrainian leftist and anarchist organizations, announce that “Borotba” union is not a part of our movement. During the whole time of this political project’s existence, its members tended to be committed to the most discredited, conservative and authoritarian “leftist” regimes and ideologies, which do not represent the interests of working classes in any way.

AWU statement on Russian intervention

Thu, 03/06/2014 - 02:15
On February 27, 2014, pro-Russian chauvinists of Crimea, supported by Berkut riot police and Russian Black Sea Fleet committed military coup in Crimea. Right now it’s already obvious that the government of “Russian Unity” movement headed by Aksionov is no more than a puppet of the Kremlin regime.
