(en) Brazil, About 3 years of Luta Libertaria!

Date Wed, 10 Aug 2005 18:17:22 +0300

Luta Libertaria was founded in June 2001 as a publishing collective.
The idea already existed at the time that we would build an
organization. Our publishing project began with the release of the
book "Anarquia e Organização" [Anarchy & Organization], texts
by Nestor Makhno and the Delo Truda group (including the famous
"Organizational Platform"), together with debates between
anarchists both in the past and nowadays. We also published other
books, such as "Socialismo e Liberdade" [Socialism and Freedom]
and some previously-unpublished texts by Mikhail Bakunin.
Recently, we published "Anarco Comunismo Italiano" [Italian
Anarcho-Communism] which includes material by Errico Malatesta
and Luigi Fabbri. Naturally we won't be stopping our activities -
there are already several publishing projects in hand and our next
book is almost ready for release as soon as some details have been
sorted out.

Since Luta Libertária stopped being only a publishing collective to
become an anarchist group, we have started to direct more energies
to our debates, always affirming our commitment towards building
alternatives and proposals which can help anarchism leave the
ghetto and make its mark in the popular struggles for social

We continue to believe that any such proposals and alternatives can
only be elaborated and put into practice through organization and
collective action. In that sense, we began a series of reflections that
we later collected into a document called "Socialismo Libertário,
um projeto em construção.." [Libertarian Socialism - an ongoing
project...]. In these 3 years of existence we have also regularly
published our bulletin "Combate Anarquista", which reaches its 36th
issue in June and deals with specifically anarchist themes and the
national and international situation.

We believe that it is of the utmost importance that anarchists
participate politically in social matters, because without that our
struggle will not advance. Unfortunately, anarchism is still
permeated by groups which believe that organization is a mistake
and which prefer to act separately and spontaneously, often jumping
in feet first, with the result that anarchism continues to be viewed by
society as some sort of "exotic plant". But happily there are those
who think the opposite and who are organizing, also through forums
such as the Forum of Organized Anarchism (in São Paulo) and in
different ways in other states.

Last year, we also inaugurated our centre, the "Espaço
Buenaventura Durruti", which apart from being the headquarters of
our publishing activities and of our group, also dedicates space so
that groups from different parts of São Paulo can meet. It is also
used for workshops in political education, with debates on themes
related to the social and political situation we live in. We also
organize monthly events monthly on various themes to help support
the centre.

During its existence so far, Luta Libertária has contined to work in
the poor neighbourhoods, in occupations of houses for the
homeless, in community radio, in the student movement, and with
Popular Resistance, always encouraging the creation of an
autonomous, combative alternative for struggle among the people.
