(en) Brazil, Gaucha Anarchist Federation FAG - Fight and win away from the polls (pt)

Date Mon, 06 Oct 2014 10:39:10 +0300

Bottom up and fight if you create a strong people! --- The mass mobilization of youth who write a piece of Brazil's recent history with the June Days have not yet had a final. The explosion of the streets announced by student-workers in flexible arrangements subject of neurotic and grueling routine of large cities, exacerbated by the deterioration of services and public goods, was not satisfied. Popular by broadening their rights emergencies continue on the scene, are dramas everyday Brazilians, and still go very throb. Have to gain power in grassroots organizations and federalism joining the rebellion and do not be capture by the institutions. Will not be elections and the offer of the parties of bourgeois democracy that confortarão the malaise that causes the system.

Candidates leading the polls for president: Dilma, Marina and Aetius has no blueprint to make social change that can give definitive and without setbacks oppressed classes solutions. On the other hand, the electoral reformism has the smallest membership of the votes. Nor have the freedom to fulfill your program, the rules of the institutional game, if it came to represent a danger to power. The electoral route is blocked by the economic powers and conservatives State mechanisms to achieve reforms that the dominant structures. Legends are left to lend supporting liberal democratic veneer to the rule of law and the owners of the oligarchies.

Elections do not allow strategic decision about the agendas that motivated these social conflicts that have flow in this open stage of the class struggle. Conservatives system factors leave very little margin for maneuver of governments to turn. In the historical formation of Brazil and for his leadership on the continent they weigh even more. What is in dispute are gradations of managing a globally dominated by finance capitalism system model. Reformism is out of question. Rule is, first, make arrangements with the power structures that obey not the vote.

The state is not a neutral machine that puts into operation its institutions to the taste of the time pilots. In bourgeois liberal conception representation has always been a legitimizing mechanism of usurpation of the commons and collective forces by the will of minorities. The state is the political power of the ruling classes, the oligarchic rule of law, where "whoever can obey and who has judgment," as the popular verse says.

The Brazilian political system, who will not stand for the oligarchies is ungovernable. Who does not play in the currency of bargaining, corporate Weres, lots of positions and mensalões does support base. The PMDB, the largest party in the country since the new republic "has always been government," charges invoice political stability of the pretenders to the throne. Fat investments of private corporations form a powerful workbench for industrial and large farmers in Congress. The bench is reactionary evangelical vigil on movements for freedom and civil rights.

The National Congress has high survival instinct, impunity, own cause. No calling for fundamental changes, for popular participation, to lose privileges on national policy through mechanisms of direct democracy.

Justice and the armed forces nor flee the rule. Devices are of the order that invest on society's judgments of bourgeois right of ownership and monopoly of violence over the misfits. The justice that amnesty scammers and torturers of the regime is the same as 64 orders arrest blacks and poor and squeeze cages in the prison system. The milicos keep Article 142 in the Federal Constitution that authorize them to suspend the legal order. Are ultimately the command of the military police who are desaquarteladas and put on the street during the years of civil-military to repress, torture and kill until our days dictatorship. The military doubled the republic, pushing back the demands of memory, truth and justice against the operators of the coup. The National Commission of Truth was born in Dilma's government with feet tied, surrounded with the movements, to no executioner of the people being heard.

Constitutional freedoms of thought and expression are rigged by the oligopoly of the owners of media power. About 11 families. They have control of the production of mass media that guide the Brazilian daily, select and rank what happens, regulate the quality of information and make sense of the privileged vector of public judgment and values that circulate. The concentration of the Brazilian media is advertising sponsored with government funds. In 2012 the secretary of communication of President Dilma gave £ 1.7 billion to oligopolies.

The banks and the financial system that dominates in fact or in law the monetary authorities send cut public spending to pay usury public debt, rising interest and leave open pros speculative capital gate. Itaú Unibanco group that has the heiress Neca Setúbal as a faithful squire of Marina Silva celebrated profits of more than $ 15 billion in 2013 during the Dilma government. The profits of the bankers do not stop growing.

The major productive capital are free of taxes and receive generous state aid. The pre-salt oil is shared in the auction with the large transnational companies. The BNDES help automakers like Volkswagen, Fiat, GM, sponsors merging corporations like Sadia and Perdigao, Brazil and Hi Telecon, lever contractors with the mega-works package funds the privatized concession of ports, airports, railways and highways to groups private. All subsidized with funds from the Guarantee Fund by workers and the national treasury debt.

The electoral route is blocked by corporate economic powers, the truth discourse of media oligopolies and conservatives State mechanisms to achieve reforms that the dominant structures.

In the current model, the government runs the state like public financing of private capitalist development, taking money at high interest financial banking. It is a policy that leads to ideological conception of neo-developmentism, looking fit with public funds the growth sectors of the capital next to a certain level of the jobs, social programs and pro mass consumer credit. Any idea of remedying the gross social inequalities that have a social pact with Brazil, where the capitalist class pulls the car and the popular sectors have a residual and uncertain participation. The social actions such as Bolsa Familia, who answered 14 million households in 2013, has a budget ten times less than the worth of the 15 richest families in the country, who have in their select list of tax evaders as Globe organizations, the group Itaú Unibanco. The expansion of higher education is made the basis of public purchase of vacancies in the market of private universities, and an apparent worsening of the quality of education. Creating jobs that stimulates the central government with generous aid to employers is linked to low pay and precarious work.

To win real solutions to the downstairs, which have unambiguous direction of social change without socks laps, only to combat the structures of concentration of power and wealth. This peleia can not ask bladder purchases political oligarchies, or relief of milicos nor honorable edition of National Journal, neither employees in Camargo Correa, Bradesco or JBS.

Speaking of growth and Brazil's middle class that was the keynote of governismo is losing momentum, no longer produces the same charm. 2011 forth the wheel of the economy no longer revolves as before. The easy credit that enabled the dream for a period of mass consumption will turning nightmare of debt. The real gain in wages is very small and precarious and poorly paid jobs. The cost of living and the price gets cheap food place to lose the exports of agribusiness. Public services do not improve quality. The relative integration of the base of class society as flexible subject of market controls, no longer makes sense in some sectors.

The international situation does not blow any wind. Europe, to take one example, faces bitterly and without a maturity date the recession, unemployment and poverty. The world of high finance, where no capitalist corporation runs the scheme, did the binge and passed the bill for the middle classes and the working classes.

What the masses complained in June 2013 will not be out there, languishing in bureaucratic expedient authorities, simulating agenda in cahoots Procedures & cabinets, breathing pop speech at the podium of a conference pick. By either side will gain flow again, not because they accuse accommodate demands that can not be suppressed by the police all the time, either by elections emptied that pass by the structural changes while the precarious life of indebted and low continues .

So also are the fights that gave the popular popular streets that were swept away from the city center sectors affected by the works Cup, 250 000 threatened or affected by eviction from their homes people.

The rebel base strikes that trampled on the union bureaucracy, the brave fight without scab and no firefighter workers from construction sites, transport, scavenging. Workers who defend themselves with low-paid jobs and poor working conditions, outsourcing, flexible regimes of exploitation of labor. The line of combative unions that do not bow to governismo and do not deal with the bosses.

The dignity of the slums that are not silent and expressed the criminalization of poverty, genocide of black people, the impunity of police murders.

The resistance of the rural poor to serve the agribusiness, mining companies and the impact of mega-works that are played by contractors, slave labor, the violation of Indigenous and Maroon territories and non agrarian reform.

The scenario of open indeterminacy journeys by 2013 is far from set. It can cool for a moment, in specific situations playing strong their mechanisms of fantasy, as the election race. But we have no doubt that he does not end here.

This process of rebels fights produced between such a wealth of values and meanings that Gestam the experience of a people who open new path, ideological vectors of change that do not dissipate easier. Give way to a generation that does not recognize itself in the traditional ways of doing bourgeois politics, distrustful of the representation of governments and parliaments of the trade union bureaucracy and electoral parties. Seeking ways to participate without intermediaries and appropriate social networks such as socialization factor in groups. What makes the forces from the streets and direct mass action expression of their power. Is in the process a new political culture, which transcends labels and established forms, which carries dreams and rebellion that has no more reference to the construction of left-80s, the "Lula There". We think with great humility that libertarian socialism chain has much to contribute, to help overcome the insufficiency of the streets with their anti-authoritarian sensibility. The fight with and organize collective head, grassroots democracy and revolutionary sense of people.

The anarchists of the FAG will vote null in the October 5 elections. As stated on another occasion: to change society, confront power and its ruling classes, shortcuts least worst, the possibilism never lead to other relations of force for the oppressed to change their life. We do not believe that either ask for votes, whatever the label, is the most appropriate policy approach to produce ideology of transformation. We are partisans of popular power, the construction of a base with the processes of struggle and popular organization, mechanisms of direct democracy and federalism, a militant labor determined to generate political capacities that Gestam forms of self-government of the masses in antagonism to established power. Neither apolitical nor supporters of the old structures of bourgeois representation, another way of doing politics. That is our militant stance and that is what our efforts endeavor.

Or they vote with the top up or fight and is organized with the low!
Our emergency room do not fit in the polls!
LXS Luchan that Arriba! Always!
