(en) France, Coordination of Anarchist Groups CGA - IAL #94 - What international strategy for CGA (fr) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 20 Feb 2013 17:06:40 +0200

While the capitalist crisis continues to hit hard the classes globally, we see the strengthening of nationalistic tendencies everywhere. At the same time, the labor and popular movement has never been so low, scattered and disorganized, as the cumulative effect of repression, manipulation logic politicians, or religious identity, national barriers and hegemony ideological capitalist state. The libertarian movement, meanwhile, is in the throes of reconstruction and recomposition internationally, and just out of the room and isolation. ---- However, since the early 2000s, a new round of popular struggle and organization is open internationally. Starting with the development of autonomous popular movements in Latin America, especially during the Argentine crisis of 2001, and with the popular movement Algerian Kabyle, in spring 2001.

More recently, the wave of struggle and revolt in the Maghreb and Mashreq and mobilizations against the crisis everywhere, from China to South Africa, from Greece to Ireland ...

The class struggle has taken on a new intensity, as well as feminist and anti-colonialist.

At the same time, the libertarian movement has been strengthened in a number of locations around the globe, has regained a foothold in regions where it had been absent for decades. Within it, the currents affirming the necessity of a specific organization, a popular anarchist organizer and are reinforced with concern for the will to remake the libertarian movement central political actor popular struggles, influence their forms and strategies a spectator and not acting to the best of gadfly, following the ebb and flow, with no prospect other than to follow a movement which would be mainly abroad.

This trend is the revival of anarchism social, popular and organizer for the moment still in its infancy, is a historic challenge in this era of capitalist offensive and state in all directions.

The increase in inter-state rivalries and inter-bourgeois for the control of resources in a context of capitalist crisis makes the march to war more apparent.

It represents also a way for the national bourgeoisie try to strengthen their position in capitalist competition, an opportunity against-revolutionary obvious deviant popular struggles towards confrontation chauvinist.

The French government, already involved in 5 external conflicts, is a major player in this imperialist logic.

All States, through logical alliance and more or less effective depending on their economic and military power, are involved in this competition for resources and the march to war.

Strategic areas for their natural resources are at the heart of conflict of powers, which take the form of war, dictatorship and development movements chauvinist, fascist national or religious material support dictatorial regimes while condemning sometimes form some of their practices, manipulation or attempted manipulation of political movements to keep the hand ...

In this context, the alternative "libertarian communism or barbarism" is more relevant than ever.

The weakness of the anarchist movement internationally is however one of the obstacles to the realization of this alternative.

However, popular movements, the autonomous struggle of the oppressed·e·s represent an alternative to the march to war, the social regression, the development of fascism in national or religious aspects. Within them, the anti-authoritarian and anti-capitalist, but not necessarily that it identifies itself as such or as an anarchist (and this is essential) represents a significant hope on the path of social transformation, provided it managed to keep away the instrumentalization of any kind, politicians, state religious ....

It is his capacity and possibilities of its explosive potential meeting with the social anarchist movement (such as mutual and reciprocal fertilizers) which opens the prospect of a break with the established order.

This leads us to raise the importance of developing our international work in several directions, to help in our small way, this meeting, this cross-fertilization, and strengthening the trend towards autonomy and self-organization in popular struggles. For this, the CGA has chosen to assert his Fifth Congress in four strategic areas for its international activities:

I. Need the value of popular struggles autonomous dissemination of their facts, their practices, their organizational methods and their successes, their theoretical knowledge especially when they occur in regions of the world and ignored by the essentialized French media.

II. The aid measure our resources, the strengthening of autonomous movements, taking advantage of differences in monetary allow our limited resources to help sometimes decisively oppressed comrades·e·s other regions of the world.

III. The development of international assistance with our libertarian comrades, especially towards the comrades struggling in regions facing violent repression, or whose libertarian movement is in its infancy. Linking to exchange that we build thoughts and practices that develop these comrades, reciprocal exchanges as a condition of an egalitarian relationship.

IV. In the current crisis, strengthening links \ between libertarian organizations at European level.
