(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL Septembre - Venezuela: Libertarian intervention remains to be invented (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 18 Oct 2017 09:10:48 +0300

Anarchists denounce the reactionary right and the chavo-madurism, but struggle to build a lasting collective force. ---- Participate in anti-government mobilization without playing the game of the MUD ; to oppose the threat of military intervention evoked in August by Donal Trump without playing the PSUV ... The path of a libertarian and revolutionary action is narrow. And, not surprisingly, appreciations vary within the revolutionary left and libertarian South American. ---- Some organizations of the Anarchist communist network such as the FAU (Uruguay) and the Federación anarquista de Rosario (Argentina), while underlining the flaws of the Chavo-madurist regime, consider that the main danger remains a return of the reactionary right supported by Washington. Indeed, although under state control, the " Bolivarian Revolution " has led to a flourishing of committees of neighborhoods, communes in the countryside and cities, cooperatives ... a form of imperfect popular self-organization, defend.

For fifteen years, several - ephemeral - libertarian groups have tried to act within this process. In 2006-2007, there was thus the libertarian action Front, which wanted to develop the popular autonomy avoiding attacking the figure of Hugo Chavez [1]. In 2012-2013, there was the Federación anarquista revolucionaria de Venezuela (FARV), which went so far as to declare that Chavez was " a companion, a brother " [2]...

Conversely, the most stable anti-authoritarian group, the Anarchist Relations Committee (CRA), publisher of the periodical El Libertario since 1995, considers that the struggle against " chavo-madurism " [3]is necessary and even central. For the ARC, anarchists must participate in the current popular demonstrations, regardless of whether the MUD calls them or not, while denouncing his reactionary project. His critics reply that in so doing, the CRA still compromises with the right. The CRA is mainly accused, halfway through, to restrict itself to the animation of a media, El Libertario, without connection with a militant intervention on the ground nor construction of an active organization.

What way, tomorrow, for a libertarian communist action in Venezuela ? The answer will come from the activists who are active in the social field, whether in neighborhood committees or in critical trade union sectors, such as the " classist " C-CURA movement (see opposite) . As the Zapatistas say, priority must go to the struggles of those who are " down, left "
