(en) alas barricadas: The Federation of Athenaeums and Neighborhood Libertarian Groups was born in Madrid (ca) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 20 Mar 2019 08:32:36 +0200

On December 15, 2018, the Federation of Athenians and Libertarian Groups of Barrio de Madrid was set up in the ESLA-EKO of Carabanchel, Madrid. Its programmatic purposes are: 1) Accumulate the knowledge generated by the daily action of federated collectives; 2) To extend the anti-authoritarian and self-management practices in the neighborhoods and towns of our territorial scope when focusing on the struggles; 3) Practice mutual support between groups, reinforcing the different projects and their extension; 4) Conduct of joint campaigns; and 5) Give collective responses to the concrete problems that arise in daily life. ---- Any group that inspires its militant action from assembly, horizontal, anti-authoritarian and self-management postulates, independently of the activity that it develops, may be part of the "Federation".

We want self-organization and confrontation. We want the organization through the confluence of collective structures, participatory and libertarian, where the conflict can be discussed, softened and agreed.

We seek the confrontation with the "system", with its two sides of the same coin: exploitative capitalism and oppressive state, to build a revolutionary discourse, clarify positions and make pedagogical work a common dynamic; also to support us emotionally and materially.

We refuse to be elites, vanguards, permanent committees; we want an organization that is built from below, that converges in citizen action, from libertarian athenaeums, neighborhood groups, free schools, feminist collectives, permanent forums for debate, committees for the unemployed, etc .; in order to be the leaven that broadens what these basic organisms are already putting into practice. In short, we seek to give the widest possible visibility to all the fronts that are open in the neighborhoods and in the villages to which revolutionary syndicalism does not reach.

In this way, sharing resources, experiences, dialoguing, we create organization and with it we make converge the individual energies dispersed in collective nuclei with a capacity of influence that contributes to take steps to the long-awaited revolution.
The social reality that we have had to live prevents the development of experiential alternatives of all kinds. Capital, with its ubiquity, delimits us and crushes us. We are facing the greatest accumulation of power ever known by humanity, well organized, capable of manipulating the citizenry to the point of turning it into an amorphous mass of tame individuals. To combat this "power" we organize ourselves: together we are stronger.

When we have sufficient resources and strength, we will have to give them utility to promote social transformations that involve as many people as possible. For this we need to equip ourselves with organisms that from the local, the immediate, the immediate, can integrate and coordinate with global objectives, illuminating the path to a culture that recovers solidarity and the common good as pillars of that new society that is about to be born; We want to replace the reactionary neoliberal individualism with a solidarity collectivism that humanizes our relations.

We have an arduous task ahead. Nobody can say that it is not exciting.
