(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire AL #312 - Libertarian network: "links on 5 continents" (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Sat, 9 Jan 2021 12:57:31 +0200

A year and a half after the creation of the UCL, its international commission draws up an initial assessment of activity, which has accelerated with the Covid-19 pandemic and the global economic crisis which make a global analysis and response crucial. ---- We are internationalists, the social revolution cannot survive in one country. When a major social struggle or revolution affects one or more countries, it is often too late to realize the usefulness of internationalism. This is why, faced with this large-scale task, we strive to organize our political movement on this scale over the long term. The merger between Alternative Libertaire and the Coordination of Anarchist Groups which gave birth to the Union Communiste Libertaire (UCL) had a beneficial effect for the international involvement of French libertarian communism.

After its creation in 2019, UCL continued its political development from the collective positions inherited from our two previous organizations, for example on the self-determination of peoples and against colonialism in Palestine. The merger also helped us in our work by pooling our forces to build the libertarian communist current at the international level. We produce analyzes and press releases on the struggles in other countries such as those of the Belarusian working class against Lukashenko [1], of the Lebanese popular classes [2]or on the health and social crisis against the Covid in Latin America [3].

We are also trying to bring internationalist solidarity to life in France. Last year we organized a feminist tour in many cities with comrades from the Federation of Basic Organizations (FOB) [4]of Argentina.

We are also continuing our relations with organizations of our political movement, particularly in Europe and Latin America, but also in other regions of the world. A map and a list on our site identify political organizations around the world with which we have relations.

The libertarian communist current has been equipped since 2005 with an international online media, Anarkismo.net, which brings together organizations from Europe, America, Africa and Oceania and publishes analyzes and statements on the political situation from their respective countries, individual contributions and also develop common positions. This is the most lasting and concrete effort of cooperation and structuring of our current.

During the health and social crisis of spring 2020, international coordination was initiated, bringing together twenty libertarian communist and social anarchist organizations on five continents which are members of the Anarkismo network, such as UCL, or which are close to it. From our discussions came analyzes of the international situation, for example on the period of the health and economic crisis linked to Covid and on the resistance of our social camp [5].

This coordination made it possible to produce common expressions on the role of women's struggle during confinement, on the news of anti-racist movements during the summer of 2020 across the world [6]and recently a declaration of solidarity for the release of prisoners and political prisoners of revolts in Chile signed by more than twenty organizations [7].

The October 2019 protests in Chile forced the government to begin a process of revising the ultraliberal constitution inherited from the Pinochet dictatorship.
During the spring 2020 containment we also participated in a discussion broadcast live on social networks with libertarian communist organizations such as Black Rose / Rosa Negra (United States) and Solidaridad (Chile), to discuss our social and health situations respective nationalities and our perspectives of struggle.


The structuring of our current on an international scale is far from having reached the stage of a libertarian communist international. We are moving step by step. Our links allow us to support libertarian communist or social anarchist organizations in their development, such as the recent German organization Die Plattform, by benefiting from the political and strategic experience accumulated in other countries. And also by transmitting and sharing among us our practices of self-management animation in the counter-powers and in the struggles. It is the self-management of the struggles of workers and of all the oppressed that will be the prelude to the self-management of society as a whole.
