(it) anarkismo.net: Anarkismo Network Statement of the general meeting: We, anarchists and libertarian communists in the class struggle in capitalist Europe (fr, it)
Thu, 14 Dec 2017 09:19:20 +0200
The European organizations which are part of the Anarkismo network met on the 18th and
19th of November in Genoa. We discussed and exchanged, thought and reflected together,
attempting as a network to plan a strategy for forward movement. ---- Delegations from
Wales, France, Italy, Switzerland and Ireland - with a warm solidarity statement from our
Catalan comrades of Embat - expressed the need to clarify and deepen our common work. ----
Where are we? ---- The phase that we are currently living in is without doubt one of
systemic crisis and strategical transformation. Capitalism in crisis is looking for a new
model of regulation while the political left is stuck in its own heavy crisis - a lack of
any clear perspective or will. ---- Social-liberalism is an active part of the State and
of the European management of capital. It has evolved as an instrument of domination and
exploitation. Another section of the political left claims a reformist ambition which is
based on a pro-State strategy but to date hasn't managed to formulate an alternative along
the lines of genuine social emancipation. There is also a relatively large milieu which
struggles to bring to life meaningful resistance at grassroots level, but nonetheless
refuses to abide by institutional frameworks.
Through the process of Fordist-type liquidation sales, capitalism brings us back to forms
of exploitation which are reminiscent of the beginning of the 20th century. The
traditional proletariat is being transformed and enlarged - it is re-produced through new
forms of exploitation like autonomous work and new structures of wage labour in a push
towards generalised precarious conditions of life.
The world, and particularly the EU, is facing new contradictions, with relative
potentialities for them to explode, such as Brexit or the rise of the far-right movements
towards national power. With huge internal tensions, the geostrategic European bloc is on
the edge, and in the near future it may either become a coherent imperialist pole, or risk
facing the pressure of other centres of power throughout the world.
The lack of a social movement able to check the dominant bloc's offensive must be
redressed to better depict the situation. No movement amongst the oppressed is able to go
forward to new social conquests and organise a combative working class under the current
dominant social conditions.
This in a situation when the far right is everyday more aggressive and the bourgeoisie is
leading an offensive against every right and social conquest that was accumulated through
struggles in the last 150 years.
Where do we want to go to and what should we do?
In the present phase and the one yet to come, we must and will have to deal with a hard
and difficult situation to build our intervention, but we won't be afraid and we will not
The end of capitalism and the self-management of the whole of society are needs that
cannot and should not wait any longer. As such, they are historical objectives. They are
the goals that lie at the heart of our practice within the organisations of the exploited.
We learn and prepare tomorrow's values in today's struggles.
We do not believe there is any shortcut to that. Our daily duty is to build step by step
the struggles and social conflicts in our neighbourhoods and our workplaces. We must
accumulate the strength in order to gather and mobilise the whole part of the society
which resists and creates dissent, refuses to comply with capitalism and defends the only
possible alternative: organization from below and the destruction of every form of
domination and exploitation. Our politics are one of emancipation, direct grassroots
action and the construction of popular power.
We've seen that Europe, despite its contradictions and internal conflicts, is not only a
supranational union of States, but also a system of transnational power which has a proper
capacity to intervene to guarantee the fundamental interests of the dominant bloc.
We believe in, and therefore we work to build, a common culture and strategy within our
respective organizations and our network, in order to reinforce social struggles and
strengthen class-struggle and emancipatory organised anarchism. We aim at building an
international network in the common area that will be able to fight back against the
processes we are facing. By identifying the potentialities of struggle, we plan to
generate an alternative and a balance of power that is more favourable to us.
We are determined for as long as necessary to bring our collective contribution to the
movement of social struggles in Europe and throughout the world.
Go forward, fight, build popular power!
We carry a new world in our hearts.
