(en) Federação Anarquista Gaúcha-FAG - OUR POSITION on the ELECTIONS of the DCE of the UFRGS (pt) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 20 Nov 2013 09:57:23 +0200

Safeguard the DCE while organizational space. ---- Over the last month the student movement of UFRGS comes passing by its traditional electoral process to the Central Directory of students, the DCE, this process that goes into his last days with the start of the election today, going up the day 21. Given the lack of militancy in the frames of UFRGS and greater involvement in a number of other activities, such as the sequence of the organisative bodies and block activities of struggles and the work of our Congress, initiated in the first few weeks of this month, unfortunately we can't follow up with due attention to the present case. Given the HomeStretch and dispute which stirs up right now we choose to express our opinion and send our support critical to the 1 Plate, consisting of part of the militancy of the block of fights.

We affirm this critical support by understanding that there are a series of bureaucratic problems that have developed over the last two managements of DCE and that little has worked specifically with a view to overcoming them. Problems such as the lack of a methodical work of the basis of the courses at the expense of overestimation of unrest around slogans and the centralization of important decisions around chains in the composition of the Board majority. Such centralization led to regrettable actions such as printing of a sticker against homophobia with a photo of a known militant in a clear personalist maneuver aimed at creating a favourable environment to a candidacy. Subtract the possibility to accumulate in important matches, such as the fight against homophobia, something which in our opinion must be built by d @ s students and not from an individual, of a supposed "great leader".

However, despite the problems mentioned, we believe that what is at stake is the defense of DCE while an instance of organizational discussions and political dispute within the student movement of UFRGS. Despite the clear and profound disagreements around the design and method of struggle and organization that we have with the major chains that today build the 1 Plate, we believe that it is today the only capable of maintaining, minimally, the DCE of the UFRGS as an important organization space, reflection and policy dispute to the student movement.

We affirm that "contradiction" to understand that today the central dispute by DCE is against two major enemies who were facing along the fights started at the beginning of the year in our city. The plates that today, from a game marketeer in luxurious campaign materials (knows funded by who), bearing the demagogic calls "the DCE with your face" and "our party is the student" are the same people who were actively conspiring against fighting driven by the bloc, is sitting with the Mayor for a misleading Fortunati negotiation around the demands of a movement which never took part, or even criminalizing our militancy repeatedly, showing us how "gangsters in gang Fights block" in its virtual spaces.

Such an attitude does not impress us, considering that such groups are today in front of the bankrupt unites and UEE, converted in large rave parties, where the debate and policy formulation already arrive ready the offices of Ministers and give rise to large parties despolitizadas. On the one hand, we have the Liberal Student Freedom Movement, parody the MEL, who was ahead of DCE for 3 years ago, converting the entity to the sad role of "Office boy" from the rectory and its mercantile projects. Many of these "highly qualified leaders" appear publicly in the Millenium Institute spaces, the so-called "liberal coterie" which aims to develop the "market economy" as breakthrough of "freedom" and which has among its main organizers the grupo Abril (Publisher of Veja magazine), RBS and arqui-reacionárias figures as Arnaldo Jabor and Reinaldo Azevedo.

In spite of the many vices present today inside the DCE, we had this entity contributing clearly with the Organization of Fights, bringing his contribution in this important and historic mass movement that developed in our city and so influenced other cities across the country. That's why, by stopping a space of dialogue and organization of the student movement and not allow this to become a big feste depoliticised, with ridiculous "big screens to watch the World Cup games", which we express our critical support to the Mate 1.

Finally, we stress that we believe sincerely in the presence of compañeros s who today, within the 1 Plate, share much of the critical balance that we do here and mobilized to overcome them, that factor also weighs in our decision by the supporting plate. We hope to be together of these companions in the fights that approach as well as promote an important buzz around themes linked to education, rethink and endorsing the student movement under bureaucratic not bases and hegemonistas, where the groundwork is above the phraseology of slogans repeated to exhaustion.
