Una mirada al anarquismo autónomo e insurreccional en la historia de Estados Unidos

image3-resize_2

El anarquismo siempre ha sido un movimiento social compuesto por una gran variedad de perspectivas respecto a organización y estrategia. El anarquismo autónomo e insureccionalista, basado en la responsabilidad individual, la organización informal, la acción directa y la lucha armada, desempeñó un papel crucial en los inicios del movimiento anarquista americano.

The Russian revolution and the international proletariat – Maria Koszutska

376323_big

This collection of articles, published during August 1918 in the newspaper of the PPS-Left, while clearly supportive of the Bolsheviks, discusses many controversial aspects of their rule: the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk, the peasantry, the terror, as well as the question of democracy. Koszutska encourages the international proletariat to take an active part in the events, and help guide them on the correct path to socialism, rather than remain critics on the outside.

Furio
Guardare i fatti storici dal punto di vista libertario e svelare gli errori e le lacune dei popoli, e quindi le vie che si sarebbero dovute battere è stato sempre un utile lavoro per il genere umano; sarà più utile parmi, dunque, ai rivoluzionari, in quest’alba tragica e luminosa di Rivoluzione Europea.
Perché – è bene confessarlo ancora – mai come e quanto oggi, il conservatorismo ha adoperato ogni forza e ogni arma pur di placare la deprecata onda rivoluzionaria, che lo deve annegare. In molte regioni, esso vi è quasi riuscito, se un ravvedimento popolare non sarà: potrebbe riuscirvi in Italia, ove molti sono – in buona e mala fede – i politicanti, che sono il maggior pericolo delle Rivoluzioni.

Actualmente resulta fundamental reconstruir la historia de la prensa anarquista en Chile, han sido muy pocos los teóricos-académicos que han develado este tema, para qué nombrar al Estado y sus historiadores, los cuales forman la historia bajo las garras y discursos homogeneizantes del Estado-nación. Como El Anárquico, periódico editado en Santiago, que usted tiene en sus manos, existieron muchos periódicos anarquistas en diferentes regiones, los cuales buscaban dar a conocer lo que la prensa estatal-burguesa no comunicaba, aquello que callan y ocultan los poderosos.

Atamansha – The life of Marusya Nikiforova

index

Malcolm Archibald


Introduction

The Ukrainian anarchist Maria Nikiforova (1887–1919) has sometimes been compared to Joan of Arc. Like Joan she started from humble origins and, improbably, became a ferocious military commander who was captured and executed by her sworn enemies. And, like Joan, she was a fanatic who pursued her goals in a violent, ruthless fashion.

The rebel’s dark laughter: the writings of Bruno Filippi

Bruno_Filippi

Bruno Filippi

Translator’s Introduction

The writings of Bruno Filippi offer something rare in anarchist writing — truly beautiful literature. I hope this comes across in my translations — where it does not, the fault is all mine. Filippi entered upon his brief life of revolt at he age of 15, in the midst of World War I, involving himself in anarchist anti-militarist activity. Several of his brief works reflect the dehumanizing effects of military life and participation in a slaughter that was qualitatively different from any war up to that time in the sheer capacity for destruction. One could not rightly speak of savagery” in relation, to this slaughter since its destructive capacity was the precise outcome of the technological progress of civilization.
