We are pleased to present a new issue of Libertarian Communism, published in collaboration with colleagues in Chile and Argentina. As mentioned in the previous work, we aim to help rebuild a center of libertarian class character and within the forces struggling to overcome the miseries of capitalism. In this sense, Libertarian Communism is intended as a forum for debate and theoretical development, being those instances we need to understand the reality in which we seek to influence. ---- Editorial ---- We are pleased to present a new issue of Libertarian Communism, published in collaboration with colleagues in Chile and Argentina. As mentioned in the previous work, we aim to help rebuild a center of libertarian class character and within the forces struggling to overcome the miseries of capitalism. In this sense, Libertarian Communism is intended as a forum for debate and theoretical development, being those instances we need to understand the reality in which we seek to influence.

We devote significant space in this issue to the dossier on Mikhail Bakunin. The aim is to deepen the contributions of this militant, bringing new translations of unfamiliar texts while digging deeper into the interpretation of its production. We believe it is important for the reconstruction of the libertarian option within the revolutionary camp revisit this author, who, in a way not without contradictions, contributed to the establishment of the basic pillars of the libertarian left.

Together with the dossier we present a Castilian translation of several chapters of Alexandre Skirda on the history of organized anarchism. This work, little known in our countries, delves into the actual processes that were the basis of the theoretical contributions of the various libertarians, while delivering the necessary contextualization of them. Thus, we believe important to understand that the various organizational developments should not be considered as "ideas" unrealistic and applicable at all times and, although the theorists who produced them have expressed it that way, but who were strongly anchored in material reality. The translation of Skirda reconstructs the context, a necessary task to locate the contributions of Bakunin that approach in the dossier.

We follow this dossier, also has three papers considering in detail a point in the development of international labor movement. The globalization of capitalism brought about the internationalization of the methods of struggle against it. Hand in hand with the concentration and centralization of capital and changes in the production process, labor organizations were ignoring the dispersion of the office and taking fragmentary features of mass organizations. This new kind of unionism and rearrangements caused tensions within the political and ideological trends revolutionary, demonstrated both in practice and in political disputes. In this regard, we believe important to study these processes and the different ways in which occurred in various regions.

Continuing with the text of the Libertarian Party, which takes up the party tradition Bakunin and applied in the context of struggle of 70, included in this number, for their particular interest, two essays that introduce the topic of armed struggle. This issue will be central object of reflection in a forthcoming edition of Libertarian Communism, but we consider important to start the debate now. In contexts such as Argentina and Chile, the discussion of armed struggle is fundamental, not only as an experience of the recent past, but also as a tactic or strategy available in the methodological arsenal of revolutionaries.

We also publish in the article by Paul Avrich on the Bolshevik Opposition to Lenin, the first part share in the previous issue of Libertarian Communism. With this, approach an empirical demonstration of the importance of studying the processes in its specificity, detached from all dogmatism. The Bolshevik party, which from a simplistic reading can be seen as a monolithic entity dedicated to building state capitalism, was carrying opposition who claimed political positions closer to Soviet democracy of the early days of the Russian revolution. Who could not prevail and succeed in infighting is something that should be studied and understood.

Finally, we consider indispensable to our military praxis Libertarian Communism spreading. In this sense, in the course of this year we launched a number of discussions and debate with researchers on subjects of interest militant. As announced, the aim of the journal, the aim of these talks and Study Center is to approach, and encourage the disusiones dinfundir for reconstruction of a left and libertarian class that is capable of influencing reality. It is the north that guides our production.
