‘Over the Walls of Nationalisms and Wars’ – Statement of participants of 8th Balkan Anarchist Bookfair (Bosnia & Herzegovina)

Monday, September 15th, 2014

It is clear that nationalism is a tool used against the exploited classes. In the Balkans, (especially in the region of ex-Yugoslavia) the rise of nationalist ideology in the 1990’s helped enable the brutal capitalist attack against society. It further atomized the population and destroyed established networks of cooperation and solidarity.

The need to confront nationalist ideology from a radical and anti-authoritarian perspective gathered us in Mostar on the 5th and 6th of September 2014, for the 8th Balkan Anarchist Bookfair. We came from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Albania, Romania, Greece and other countries outside the Balkan area.

The true nature of nationalism is nowhere more obvious then in Mostar, a city divided in two, with the signs of wartime brutality still evident in the streets of the city. (more…)

Black Block of Iran and the Anarchist Network – Solidarity Statement in support of all Kurdish people and their struggle for freedom

Monday, September 8th, 2014

We, as a part of Farsi speaking anarchists, strongly convey our solidarity with you and express our extreme anger towards the injustice happening to your children, women and men for the profit of Capital, the occupiers, war criminals and all those of the rule of tyranny.

We anarchists, believe the rights of Kurds and Palestinians are so integral to each other that they should be recognised as one.

Imperialists in all shapes and forms, hand in hand with the Islamic regime of Iran, are ruining the life of innocent people of this planet on regional levels and on a global scale.

Western rulers on one hand are declaring they are fighting against Islamization, on the other hand, instead of providing Muslim residents with free and universal education, are building more and more mosques that do not free them from ignorance.

Let us expose these dirty tricks of Western rulers from every layer of Western society, including among Western leftists.

Ignorance of these leftists distracts the world from the real catastrophe, truths and all the other terrifying things happening in the Middle East, and has turned the majority of activists into dysfunctional forces in Europe, US, Canada, Australia and other countries.

Worse still, the activism of the left has turned into a work “against” Middle Eastern people, who end up recruiting for a supernumerary army of Hamas, Lebanese Hezbollah and the criminal Islamic regime of Iran, in mass rallies organised by bloody mosques in Europe and elsewhere under the name of supporting the Palestinian cause.

Neither Ukrainian nor Russian! – Let’s develop our own camp, the third camp, that of social revolution! (Třídní válka)

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

Analysis from Left-communist comrades Třídní válka / Class War:

When we wrote some months ago in our text, “War preparations between Ukraine and Russia – Show or Reality?i that the conditions for a new war ripen in Ukraine, many comrades expressed doubts or even disagreements with such a categorical statement. Now we can say that the conflict in Ukraine has clearly switched from the “cold” phase to the “hot” one and that what we are currently witnessing in the east of the country is the war by all definitions. From Lugansk on the border with Russia to Mariupol on the Black Sea coast two military forces compete in daily clashes when trying to enlarge the area under their control, they fight on the ground as well as in the air, in countryside as well as in industrial centers, artilleries shell villages, air forces bomb cities (under the pretext that their enemy uses the inhabitants as living shields), men, women, children die under the bombs and missiles… In four months of armed conflict more than 2,000 civilians and militaries have been killed and 6,000 others injured; 117,000 proletarians have been internally displaced and 730,000 others found refuge in Russia. Just as we were on the point of finishing this article dead bodies are strewn over the streets of Donetsk, caught in a government’s offensive stranglehold.

In the same text we also wrote that the only reply of the proletariat to the war is to organize and develop revolutionary defeatism, i.e. practically refuse to join one or the other camp, on the contrary to build connections between proletarians from both sides of the conflict through the struggle against both bourgeoisies. As even in this field things developed, our text deserves (three month after publishing) a post-scriptum.

This text is based on information drawn from different sources (that we quote in footnotes) from militant blogs to official media. This short description of events in the Ukraine required hours and hours of careful work, searching information, reading texts, watching videos, comparing different data etc. We would like to emphasize two things: Firstly, the fact that the events that we describe here were not covered by BBC or Euronews does not mean that they did not happen, that we invented them (various leftist sources and also Ukrainian and Russian media describe them). Secondly, it is clear that the news that we get from the Ukraine are chaotic, incomplete and sometimes contradictory. This however doesn’t mean that we should give up our attempt to grasp what is going on there. We believe that we should face a selective reporting of the state with a critical and radical position of anti-capitalist movement; we should develop and share information and analysis that see the world through a prism of revolutionary perspective.

***

War ideology (either based on a defence of a united national state on one side or the right for a self-determination and pro-Russian sympathies on the other side) is taking root in Ukraine, civil society organizations organize fund-raising campaign to support the army, popes bless arms of this or that side, and television repeats scenes of babushkas supplying armed man with their last jar of compote. Not all proletarians however let themselves to be brainwashed with the war propaganda of one or the other side, not all of them want to sacrifice themselves “for their homeland”. Expressions of practical refuse of war slaughter appear in always greater numbers and both sides of the conflict have big difficulties to recruit new manpower for their mutual massacre. (more…)

2015年 「8・6集会」への誘い Invitation to the “August 6″ Anarchist Gathering in 2015 at Hiroshima (Japan)

Saturday, August 30th, 2014

The Association for Anarchism Studies in Hiroshima decided at the ‘August 6th Gathering’ [date of the atomic-bombing in that city] this year to invite a wide range of people with an interest in anarchism from within and without Japan to the ‘August 6th Gathering’ of 2015, as it will be 70 years since the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima and since Japan lost the war.

Welcoming this invitation, the Kansai anarchism studies group has decided to participate in organizing the ‘August 6th Gathering’ along with the Hiroshima anarchism research group, and would like to specifically call out to people with an interest in anarchism outside of Japan.

The Kansai anarchism studies group is accepting applications to the 2015 ‘August 6th Gathering.’ If you would like to participate please contact us by emailing the address below.

Mostar: Program of 8th Balkan Anarchist Bookfair (Bosnia & Herzegovina)

Friday, August 29th, 2014

Program of 8th Balkan Anarchist Bookfair: Over the Walls of Nationalism

Eighth Balkan Anarchist Bookfair will take place in Mostar on 5th and 6th of September 2014 as part of Anti-Fascist festival, annual Mostar event.

We invite all anarchist/antiauthoritarian groups, individuals, publishers, initiatives and projects from Balkan (and beyond) to come and participate at BAB in discussions and meetings which will help us build solidarity networks and strong anti-nationalist and anti-capitalist movement. Mostar in many ways represent misery that is imposed on big part of Balkan through divisions created by nationalism, war and fight for power between political elites which were and still are working on destruction of all social
networks in town that go beyond these artificial “differences”. All this fits perfect to capitalist logic of “divide and rule”, since it’s used as tool for prevention of all social revolts and attempts to build up social connections that were violently broken. (more…)

“Arming Negation” – A Communique from the Imprisoned Members of C.C.F. (Greece)

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

10599382_647879075308492_1171458118256482873_n

Inter Arma received and translated:

ARMING NEGATION

Mediocrity kills. For us there is no middle road. Whoever says is an anarchist, faces a decisive dilemma either to act or to clam up and abandon anarchy. Because anarchy at the tail-end of legality and minced words is not possible.

(unreleased text by C.C.F.)

I. Symbolisms inside coincidences

After almost two years the third trial of the state against the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire is coming to its end. The theatrical show of the court is peaking through the “sacred” act of the apologies.

The symbolism of the words in not coincidental. Indeed for the legal civilization the apology is considered to be a “sacred” right of the accused. It reminds the confession of the worshiper to the priest. It is the supreme moment of exaltation of the judicial authority, before the verdict. The accused is required to kowtow his judges (coincidentally, in greece there is a christian image of the “Son of God” above the judges’ heads. The coincidences are left to each one’s insigh) and beg for the forgiveness of penal sins, for clemency or even for vindication. In the language of symbolisms we have always preferred the heretic iconoclasts instead of the Inquisition’s justice. In the world of reality we are anarcho-nihilists and we are not going to apologize to any judge. (more…)

Unto the Threats of Power: No Silence or Complacency! (Update from Chile)

Monday, August 18th, 2014

A brief update on the present situation, received from the Chilean comrades:

Spread the revolt for the total liberation with all forms of struggle, and against all authority!!

In the last few weeks, we have seen through the media how the Powerful have initiated a new offensive against the anti-authoritarian/anarchist community. Once again, we can see how the newspapers and news channels have propagated the idea of trapping those responsible for various arson attacks and explosions that have taken place since 2011.

Alleged suspects are turned into convicts through the media, with the end of validating future repressive waves unto so-called “public opinion,” unleashing possible identities, accusations, and investigative lines.

This is not a new context considering the continuation of strategies that those in power have developed throughout history to annihilate all forms of radical expression and revolutionary struggle. Moreover, we have a recent case in 2010 that unleashed a mass media campaign that prepared the way to “Operation Salamandra” led by then Prosecutor Peña, through which many homes, social centres, squat houses were raided under charges for the alleged [Chilean Anarchist] “Bombs Case”. The accused spent a year in prison and ended up being absolved by the Courts due to lack of evidence. (more…)

Open letter of Revolutionary Struggle member Pola Roupa from clandestinity / Lettera aperta del membro di “Lotta Rivoluzuionaria”, Pola Roupa, dalla clandestinità / Offener Brief aus der Klandestinität von Pola Roupa, Mitglied des Revolutionären Kampfe (Greece)

Friday, August 15th, 2014

Italian & German version below, here are Spanish and Portuguese.

On July 16th, 2014 the armed dogs of the establishment unleashed a fierce manhunt, and comrade Nikos Maziotis, member of the Revolutionary Struggle, was hit by a cop’s bullet and fell covered in blood. The comrade gave his battle against the cops that were chasing him. The state apparatus in its totality triumphed over the arrest of the “No 1 most-wanted fugitive” in the country. So did the criminal and real archi-terrorist Samaras, whose government took over the reins from the former pro-memorandum governments in a campaign for the biggest social genocide that has ever occurred in Greece in a time of “peace”. Samaras has used the arrest of Maziotis as a means to the stabilization of his faltering government, in order to support a political and economic regime with rotten foundations, which has long been discredited in social consciences.

For the political and economic regime, not only in Greece but also internationally, the arrest of a revolutionary with the political calibre of Nikos Maziotis is a “significant success”, as stated by the United States. That’s because the comrade’s arrest is perceived by our enemies as a blow to the struggle for the establishment’s subversion, as a blow to the struggle for liberation from the yoke of capitalism and the State, as a blow to the struggle for social Revolution. The size of threat that Maziotis poses to the establishment is reflected in the high-pitched nauseating rejoicing on the part of the domestic and foreign political power. Because the comrade and the Revolutionary Struggle, the organization in which he belongs, are intrinsically linked to the systemic political destabilization, to the undermining of a rotten regime; linked to the consistent war against domination and contemporary barbarity; linked to the struggle for the overthrow of the State and capitalism, linked to the social Revolution itself. Comrade Nikos Maziotis was and continues to be committed to the Revolution. This is what he has fought for, this is what he still fights for; this is why they present him as No 1 danger to the establishment. Thus, the political gravity of this case should be the primary parameter in expressing solidarity with the comrade. (more…)

Statement on the confrontation in Ukraine

Friday, June 27th, 2014

In the ongoing conflict, we support neither Ukrainian government nor pro-Russian factions that established their authority on the portion of Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts. The working class (i.e. everyone who has neither power nor capital) is equally alien both to the concept of ​​unitary Ukraine and to the ideas of ​​”federalization” or creation of new states — these are merely the games of politicians, drawing blood from ordinary people. We, the left and the anarchists, should primarily adhere to the needs of the working class in the war-torn regions of Ukraine, protect their rights and freedoms.

Against LPR and DPR!

Donetsk and Luhansk “people’s republics” are a collection of warring right-wing juntas. Rights and freedoms, which are granted to the rest of Ukraine, are not available in the territories under their control.
Public manifestation of political dissent is not possible there; worker rights activists who criticized DPR were kidnapped and tortured. Upon preservation of these regimes the working class will be completely deprived of any opportunity to defend their legal rights. The only possible form of the “left” activity in DPR and LPR is the ritual worship of Soviet symbols, which has nothing to do with the workers’ interests. (more…)
