Nationwide Organization of Revolutionary Anarchists in the United States?

Originally posted on the Rochester Red and Black website. Colin is a member of Common Struggle as well as Rochester Red and Black.

By Colin O

Over 150 years of the anarchist theoretical and organizing tradition have passed, yet anarchist influence in the United States is practically non-existent. In some local contexts, we do see occasional anarchist influence, but in a nationwide context anarchists are practically irrelevant.

There has been a conversation brewing for a few years among some anarchists. This conversation has moved forward specifically in a grouping of organizations that have come together in recent years around the Class Struggle Anarchist Conferences. Since the first Class Struggle Anarchist Conference in New York City in 2008, it’s been increasingly clear that these different organizations have a great deal of agreement and could be strengthened by unification into a nationwide anarchist organization.

In anticipation for an upcoming conference of these organizations that intends to found this single, nationwide organization, this article is an effort to bring together the many arguments for why such an organization is desirable. More than that, I hope to show the inspirational possibilities of such an organization in the broader anarchist movement, so that this organization can take off after its founding.

El Día de Fred Hampton

Hoy es el Día de Fred Hampton. Es un día para recordar a un revolucionario y organizador comunitario dinámico. Fue clave en la construcción de un movimiento multirracial de la clase obrera que desafió al sistema de opresión y explotación. Debido a su eficacia, él y Mark Clark fueron asesinados a sangre fría por el Departamento de Policía de Chicago el 4 de diciembre de 1969.

¡Justicia por Johany! Manifestación y Marcha

En marzo y abril, una empleada de Harvard que trabajaba hace mucho tiempo, Johany Pilar informó que era acosada sexualmente en el trabajo. En mayo ella fue amenazada con “grandes, grandes problemas” por un administrador. En septiembre, le dijeron verbalmente y por escrito que la podrían despedir, la primera medida disciplinaria que recibió desde que empezó a trabajar en Harvard en 1998! Luego del piquete de octubre, donde dos compañeros de trabajo de Johany hablaron en su nombre, los tres fueron informados que desde entonces son “personal esencial,” implicando que tienen que trabajar durante las emergencias, como el reciente huracán, cuando casi todos los demás empleados tienen el día libre. Estos trabajadores jamás se consideraban “esenciales” hasta que ayudaron a pasar la voz sobre el tratamiento de Johany. Este es otro ejemplo de las represalias “tal para cual” que ha recurrido la administración desde que Johany empezó a resistir la cultura de violación en el trabajo.

Justice for Johany! Rally and March

In March and April, long-term Harvard employee Johany Pilar reported being sexually harassed at work. In May she was threatened with "big, big problems," by a manager. In September she was told verbally and in writing she could be fired, the first discipline she received since she started at Harvard in 1998! Shortly after a picket in October, at which two of Johany's co-workers spoke up for her in public, all three were informed they are now considered "essential staff," meaning they have to work during emergencies, like during the recent hurricane, when almost everyone else gets the day off. These workers were never considered "essential" until they helped publicize Johany's treatment. This is another example of the tit-for-tat retaliation which management has sunk to ever since Johany stood up against rape culture in the workplace.
