(en) Libertarian Alternative editions, Chamechaude, Davranche, "1917, the anarchists, their role, their choices" (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 20 Apr 2018 10:12:26 +0300

A small book from the summer 2017 issue of Alternative libertarian on anarchism in the first sequence of the Russian Revolution, in 1917-1918. With additional articles and unpublished information. ---- Finally, we identified the six anarchists who were members of the Bolshevik-dominated Military Revolutionary Committee, which was the architect of the October 1917 putsch in Petrograd. ---- This information, and other unpublished, appears in the little book that has just appeared to the editions of AL, revised and expanded version of the summer 2017 issue of the eponymous monthly. There will also be two unpublished portraits: " Konstantin Akachev, the Black Ace of Red Aviation " and " Nestor Kalandarischvili, Makhno of the Siberian Taiga". ---- Click to buy the book ---- Of the Russian Revolution, the libertarians often retain only two epic and significant episodes: the Makhnovshchina ; Kronstadt 1921.

The initial sequence of 1917-1918 is poorly known. Yet it is here that most of the game was played for the anarchist movement.

In February 1917, anarchism was the most minority component of Russian socialism. What was his consistency then, what was his role, what choices did he make ? Certainly, the explosive politicization of the proletariat and the conscripts led to a plethoric growth of parties and unions, hitherto clandestine. But how can this stream of volatile converts be transformed into a collective force capable of influencing the course of events ? How to create surprise ?

This book tells how the libertarian movement played its part and tried to catch up, before being brutally strangled by the new power.
