Editorial

Communism is the past. The USSR? An empire dusty antiques shop relegated to the history. A system of domination archaic compared to capitalism in its phase gleaming high-tech and neoliberalism. And Russia today, then? In the ruins of the empire deceased, the return of a new form of autocracy personified by Putin and his minions, it illustrate the historical inevitability of a country culturally doomed to suffer all authoritarian regimes. Bet that we would do in this case is exactly the opposite: Russia, are struggles with this, and they are also novel forms of domination that are experienced from 1917 to our days of "real socialism" in era of Yeltsin and Putin, before spreading to the rest of the world. The liquidation of the peasantry, forced industrialization, the destruction of natural habitats, the bureaucratization of all social relations ... but also more generally the crushing of workers, women and minorities, the rule in politics of lies and brutal cynicism: these are phenomena that affect today all countries of the world. In Russia, red hopes communist past was believed to be the black affliction among the waves of privatizations, the return of colonial wars and the rise of the extreme right. But this black one, now is perhaps the revolt. Not to mention the persistence of a combative and courageous anarchist movement, the events of recent years have shown a return to the political scene of anti-fascist groups, feminist and radical environmentalists - when it is not Citizen anonymous out of the mass to say no. These are the people, and beyond them all the Russian people, who need our support. Gold support is to first understand: what happened to Russia, what is happening now, and how it echoes our own experience.

======================================
* Libertarian and Social offensive was born in the year 2003 will participate in the construction of a real offensive that put an end to capitalism, patriarchy and contributes to the development of other future reports without domination or exploitation. We advocate for a society based on solidarity, social equality and freedom. Several principles underlie OLS:

Independence Act in a manner free from any institutional logic tied to the state or capital.

Federalism and individual groups that make up the es-OLS are autonomous, they combine freely while respecting the foundations and values ââof the OLS.

AssemblÃisme Practice or encourage horizontal forms of organization and decision-making relied on direct democracy.

Anti-authoritarianism Combat all forms of domination whether social, gender, 'race' ... We also reject the logic of conquest of power that the implementation of cons-institutional powers to fight against the hierarchical practices.

Out Through our intervention policies and practices, we want to ask at the end of today's society. We want to promote the existence of alternative social relations and helping to develop space and time emancipated and subversive. We therefore take part in the emergence of creative utopia.

Mutual support and promote research contribution of solidarity between subversion projects, according to the principles of freedom of association and experimentation, to act in accordance with the partners ... We want to work for a world where well-being and happiness are among the first concerns.

The OLS is as an element in the constellation libertarian, making its contribution to the revolutionary movement. The organization is not an end in itself and should not take precedence over the struggle and reflection.

We refuse to engage in terms of our own interests organizational "pass" a fight to another as modes. Even if we appear from time to time as "OLS" - through Offensive newspaper we publish at some political events - to confront, defend or share our values, our ideas, our practices, we do not the logical representation. In a society based on appearances, the revolutionary movement must not succumb to the lure of spectacle.

We fight especially against everything that makes us human beings alienated and / or oppressors : social exploitation, economic insecurity, patriarchy, heterosexism, technological tyranny, racism, massification. Faced with the logic of confinement and stupidity, we offer other forms of emancipatory associations where the return engagement between theory and practice are ongoing and we can build stable relationships, not alienating, esteem and cooperation.

We want to build a truly democratic society, if we define democracy as a form of organization of power to know and control our conditions. It is important to think of new social organizations that allow sharing of debates and decisions. This amounts to breaking the power of autonomy. It should not be outside of the company, but in his breast must be socialized.

If the parentage of OLS is part of the long history of anarchism, we refer also to other associations and movements. We are trying our level contribute to the renewal of the critical libertarian, participate in the creation and dissemination of alternative anti-authoritarian and liberating.
