Against the new “paquetazo” of this exploitative and murderous government, Let’s make a new proletarian revolt! [Ecuador]

Yesterday, May 25th was a nationwide day of protest in Ecuador against the new legal package introduced by the government of Lenin Moreno, cynically dubbed the “Humanitarian Aid Law”, which under the pretext of the coronavirus crisis in the country, cuts wages, justifies massive layoffs and increases the price of gasoline (the last of which was the catalyst for the massive revolts in October of last year which shook the whole region and also set the precedent for the subsequent revolts in Chile) Here is the translation of a flyer that was distributed by some comrades in Quito during the demonstrations there. Also it’s worth mentioning that the blog Fever has recently published a translation done recently, written by one of the same comrades (of the blog Proletarios Revolucionarios) about the recent international “app” couriers’ strike. That article can be found here: https://feverstruggle.net/2020/05/22/couriers-protests-in-ecuador-proletarian-resistance-in-the-midst-of-precarization-and-pandemic/

Here is the translation of part two of the series written by the comrade of Proletarios Revolucionarios, let’s let the introduction speak for itself:

On activism, theory, the individual and revolutionary organization. An imaginary debate between a few comrades

This text, composed for the most part of key fragments from texts by other historical and international comrades on the themes proposed, is the continuation or second part of my text “The self-abolition of the proleariat as the end of the capitalist world (or why the current revolt doesn’t transform into revolution”, and it’s a tentative and provisional response to the question “So what should we do then?”

The self-abolition of the proletariat as the end of the capitalist world (Proletarios Revolucionarios)

Here is the translation of a recent text from a comrade of the now defunct group Proletarios Revolutionarios (Quito, Ecuador) which attempts to clarify the reason why past and current struggles don’t expand from local revolts to the global revolution that needs to be assumed for the survival of the species, placing an emphasis on the need for the proletariat to not only recognize our condition and fight against the capitalist class, but to recognize the need for us to abolish our condition as proletarians itself and therefore the capitalist conditions that have created our class. This text is part one of a two part series, part two will be published here very soon and a pdf compiling both is in the works.

La Oveja Negra n.69 + Cuadernos de Negación n.12

Here are two texts translated in collaboration with the original authors, comrades from Rosario, Argentina: A special edition of the newsletter La Oveja Negra (The Black Sheep) with analysis about issues relating to the SARS-CoV2 crisis, and issue 12 of the journal Cuadernos de Negación, which makes a thorough critique of the ideology of self-management or cooperativism. Needless to say, both texts are essential reading in the context of current debates about how to understand and respond to the situation that we find ourselves in as a class today.

Against the pandemic of capital, social revolution! (Proletarios Internacionalistas)

Here is the english version of the latest text from Proletarios Internacionalistas about the role played by Capital and its States in exasperating the continuing coronavirus crisis and how it is taking advantage of the situation to oppress and exploit us as proletarians even more, using the opportunity to crush the growing wave of revolt that has been rising in the recent years. As the comrades make clear once again, the dynamic of capitalism imposed on us all around the globe is the deadliest virus of all, and the only way to ensure our survival as a species against this mortal threat is to unite and fight it as a class worldwide, in order to bury this pestilent system once and for all.

Against the Holy Family of capital, we defend our lives by means of social antagonism (Grupo Barbaria)

In this article we intend to tackle the questions that are unpinned by the current state of emergency that was decreed by the Pedro Sánchez administration in Spain, along with the measures that were announced on Tuesday, March 17th. We are living in times of profound social crisis, a health crisis that, at the same, is combined with an economic crisis, of change in the climate, psychology, politics, etc. In reality we’re facing the crisis of a world that’s beginning to collapse, that’s exhausting its historical time: it’s the world of capital. It’s the crisis of capital. Continue reading →

[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.
