[Chile] Now There’s No Turning Back n.1

Here is a translation of “Ya No Hay Vuelta Atrás”, the first issue of a bulletin published in early december (which appears to have been written in the context of late november) about the Chilean revolt and the need for the territorial assemblies to reject attempts at recuperation as embodied by the so-called Constituent Process and to assert their autonomy outside of and against all State institutions. Again it’s been attempted to maintain the format of the original publication.

Evade $hile, communiques 1-11 compiled

The original spanish language communiques, provided on the same sites as the translations, have also been compiled for convenience.

International Revolt Against Global Capitalism (Proletarios Internacionalistas)

Here is a translation of the latest communique from Proletarios Internacionalistas about the recent struggles around the world and the decisive need for them to converge and assume themselves as the global struggle of our class against the State and Capital. One more reminder that only through international proletarian unity, aware of but transcending all localist conditions and perspectives, can we bring an end to the capitalist nightmare that holds our planet in captivity.

Postmodernity or the imposture of a false radicality (Barbaria)

Here is an english translation of a text by Grupo Barbaria which, coming from an uncompromisingly revolutionary perspective, makes a short but powerful critique of the platitudes of the various ideologies that loosely fall under the category of ‘postmodernist”. Ideologies which have notably achieved a wide and poisonous influence over radical movements across the world, effectively reducing class to “one more form of oppression” in the minds of numerous would-be revolutionaries, and thus negating the historical struggle of the proletariat and its centrality in the creation of a worldwide human community free from all forms of oppression and exploitation.

This timely text is an important reminder that the revolution for anarchy and communism is not the struggle for fair treatment, representation and recognition for “oppressed identities” on the part of Capital and the State, but their concrete negation and the total and absolute destruction of the class and mercantile society on a global scale.

A Letter From Chile (Raoul Vaneigem)

[.PDF]

What’s been happening has been so beautiful. Two weeks of uprising have already gone by which have allowed us to shake off the fear, the indolence and frustration of living under the dictatorship of money and meet as human beings, beyond all the identifications which had kept us separated.

From the beginning, the insurrection and its spontaneous generalization expressed its critique of the capitalist way of life by the deed, expropriating and destroying the symbols of capitalism and the State (supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, police stations, municipal buildings, etc.) There are loads of demands, so many that everybody knows that what’s needed here is a structural change. In the streets is heard “now nothing will ever be the same again”. Everyone’s desire to live has been reborn in the adventure of the anti-system struggle. Continue reading →
