(en) Brazil, Aurora Obreira anarchist magazine #22 - Thinking about the situation today (pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 08 Jan 2013 18:52:40 +0200

Imagine yourself in the following situation: ---- You are in the middle of a busy highway next to several people, many of whom are known for a long time. You are abreast of these people, shouting slogans against the government and the system, leaving the traffic stopped, making the moment very tense and noisy. Suddenly, the front forms a row of men in helmets and shields so. Close Avenue, profiled in order and silently watch you and everyone else through the sunglasses. Await the signal of his superior officer, as well-trained dogs. ---- In the air feels tension, a moment of silence on both sides. A police officer with a bullhorn calls the end of the manifestation and patency of the avenue, thus restoring "order" of the city system. A push, a person falls to the ground right next to you. It is the sign, the police begin to walk yet profiled, banging their batons on their shields aimed at dispersing the rally, urging protesters including you. What to do?

Run, stay calm, stay paralyzed with fear, confront the police, etc..
There are several options that should be taken into account and in a few seconds, make a decision and act. This means not only preserve their physical integrity, but also the group of people around you and the very manifestation.
This text appears with the goal of discussing the need for training in situations of tension and imminent danger of confrontation, have at least one action consistent and rapid responses, many of which depends on the moral integrity, physical and policy of each individual and the collective.
The first point needed for each element and the group is to be clear what you want and how it occurs. Individuals and groups prepared theoretically means actions consistent and clear practical purposes, because when you know fight, fight more and better.
Thinking the situation today is essentially stay informed and in constant education, forming a solid and well grounded on subjects chosen as relevant. When you are more aware of the group and its individuals, the chances of manipulation decreases proportionately and shows the quality of direct action and why we make the difference.
By extrapolating the discussions on developing the whole group and even beyond it, generates an increase in internal and external links a network of support. Break up the monopoly of party leaders and vanguards, great manipulative movements, where their use to political maneuvering and reformist strategies.
But that will not be done on the day of action!!! We must prepare ourselves as best as we meet and not be waiting for someone to tell me what to do. Remember: Actions and changes depend much more from you.
Think of the situation today and develop questions and answers as:
a) What is happening to the region where I live and what relation it has with the world?
b) Because the situation of millions of people are miserable?
c) What is my role in the region where I live and what my relationships with others?
d) Where do inequality and what can be done whether it be legal or not to decrease it?
e) The current economic and political model is the best way to lead society, there is another way?
f) We act consistently with our beliefs and know what they are?
This will be helpful in your consciousness and action as the benchmark for fighting, but not to "philosophizing" at critical moments in them is action that counts and not the theses remote and abstract. No use to talk about a thesis before police oppression treinadxs precisely as they are oppressing mandadxs. His attitude at this time must be fast, firm seeking to maintain their integrity and DXS companheirxs envolvidxs in the act.
This leads to another question: how is your health revolutionary?
Be current with fitness, having a healthy diet (not that we're preaching becomes a vegan life, that would be asking too much and that choice is up to you and not an imposition, but think seriously declining in vices such as drinks , cigarettes and drugs in general, and practice more sports and a balanced diet). Know that most of the police, especially eltite, play sports regularly and train weekly as oppress and repress all who are sent. So it is in the military and that means a contingent of nearly 2 million people trained to repress, oppress and if necessary "neutralize" the enemy, or kill.
Do not think we're doing condoning violence, it is already done and is reinforced by sensational news that preach implementation of tougher laws, stronger and more police violence against those who are outside the system. And that ends up generating more violence and so going up the climb of fear, which is useful for keeping people hostage.
But in any case, we are pointing out the importance of knowing how to resist and fight, and accordingly, we will produce some texts strengthening preparation for the fight. No point in having a well structured ideal if we have a base to keep it. Health and wellness revolution!
