(en) i-f-a: Anarchist does not vote, fight! Anarquista não vota, luta! By Fenikso Nigra / IFABrasil - Black Phoenix / Federal Anarchist Initiative Brazil (pt )

We consider elections are a part of a corrupt, oppressive and exploitative system. This is not new, at the origin of the modern conception of anarchy that is around 250 years old, the option of anarchy has always been the direct struggle for self-management policy and decentralized federalism, marked by the construction of legitimate political force at the base, by people oppressed and exploited. This leads to a resistance to all proposals that remove this autonomy and elections is this removal of autonomy, which violates the freedom of people to make policy directly, without representation, without parties, without a state. ---- In this moment of time here in Brazil we are forced to another electoral
process that removes the protagonism of the people, which disarticulate, partidariza and annul the struggle and emancipatory. Despite this, many
people who call themselves anarchists are propagating the "useful
critical vote," for fear of consolidating totalitarian, fascist forces,.
What we think is that these people are unaware or out of the reality of
the periphery, of marginality, that do not live in the poor conditions
of the Brazilian favelas and are not targets of daily violence that our
oppressed and exploited people suffers.

By assuming the "left / right" stereotype and still vowing to "vote" is
to demean the struggle and resistance that our people have been holding
since the invasion of this land by the Europeans. Even worse, it is
betraying the principles of social freedom, equality and justice so
prevalent in the anarchist struggle that have led thousands of
anarchists to die throughout the world in the struggle against the
oppression and exploitation of tyrannies, be they economic, social,
political or cultural. Our clashes have occurred with the right and left
governments, so we know that none of them is reliable for a single vote.
We have not forgotten how we have been beaten by the forces of
repression over the past 10 years, in the persecutions and threats
against our activists, in which they are arrested for demonstrating on
the streets against the state.

We are not interested in the result of the polls, in them our protest
has always been and is void or not vote. The important thing is to
maintain and expand the struggle and resistance for the emancipation of
all the oppressed and exploited and that will happen regardless of who
wins the electoral tax process. Our actions are in the communities where
we build direct managements, of wide popular participation, without
parties, without bosses.

We guarantee that the fight in this way expands the anarchist
experiences and favors the process of social emancipation that we seek.
We reinforce that in 2019 we will be at the forefront of the struggle
for freedom, equality and social justice for the social emancipation of
our oppressed and exploited people, regardless of who is elected,
because we know that our struggle will always be against all political
parties, against tyrant and authoritarian groups that live off the
exploitation and oppression of all our people.
Anarchist does not vote, fight!
