(en) [Spain] aunar: New libertarian organization in Aragon - Declaration of intent (ca, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 02 Aug 2015 12:09:40 +0300

This initiative is promoted by a group of militants and activists from different social movements and unions of Aragon. We are people who participate individually in anarcosindicatos, student organizations or social centers as well as other collectives and base assemblies both districts as sector. ---- We understand that the 15M supposed an inflection point in the way of understanding politics and live with enthusiasm and in different squares of our cities and towns were created spaces for encounter and political debate that hitherto did not happen. However we see how the evolution of speech "does not represent us" culminated in a electioneering turning these social movements, a result of not being able to articulate a speech by outside institutions, to speak only of goals as abstract as the end of capitalism or the abolition of the state when it is necessary to be aware that it is not what is at stake right now, but that we are in a process of accumulation of forces and meet our immediate needs. That's why we were the electoral organizations who took that role, becoming a short-term attractive option for a large part of the population tired of seeing how their material living conditions worsen.

We have analyzed that the state is not a neutral tool at the service of those who want to use it but it has a specific function, well defined, to maintain the status quo through the monopoly of force. With an increasingly global capitalism, its institutions are nonetheless misery management tools at the service of economic and financial powers of supranational character: we are aware that neoliberalism will not end up with a Royal Decree.

Given this situation, we see the need to establish a common strategic line in the long run, involving a set tactical goals, as well as some lines of action and, based on an analysis, generate discourse on issues that affect the everyday form and that normally, as movement, not position ourselves, in which translates into a libertarian program. To accomplish it we consider essential to create an organization that far from wanting to replace social movements and anarcosindicatos, complement, reinforce and enrich the work they do.

Historically, no social revolution was possible without a strong collective action and autonomous bodies and that is why this organization will serve to strengthen and develop this kind of movement by coordinating who, with libertarian practices currently participating in them in our territorial context. This makes us stronger in time to intervene socially and address the structural violence exerted on people and bodies with political unity in the organization but not necessarily full ideological unity.

We think having a structure based on the different fronts of struggle in which we participate and work specific theoretical material of each front from which generate this discourse thanks to the collective debate, without getting lost in theory, to be able to establish a dialogue between social intervention and reflection.

Similarly, to insist on commitment and militant responsibility, ending the dominance of individual liberties over collective within anarchism - to achieve balance between the two - because we believe that is the only way to focus the collective efforts to common goals . Moreover, we observe how often invest short-term efforts in our spaces that by not responding to a pre-defined strategy are lost and do not serve as a scale up goals in the medium and long term, which causes feeling of stagnation between militancy by not be able to quantify the progress of movement. We must move to a shift in militant culture.

We also see the need to reframe or clarify terms of classical anarchism as "propaganda by done" or "direct action" that are usually misunderstood or deliberately tergiversados, as well as break the socially imposed aesthetic anarchism order to get out of our areas of resistance and subculture to move to the political offensive.

In short, we want to build collectively a real alternative, territorial, strong, organized and out of institutions to become the protagonists of our own lives in the political, economic and social.
