(en) Cuba: ANARCO-CAPITALISM? NO THANKS! (ca, de, fr, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Tue, 14 Mar 2023 08:12:55 +0200

The Alfredo López Libertarian Workshop is a collective whose purpose is to promote the libertarian self-organization of society on the basis of autonomy, equity, and the elimination of economic exploitation. ---- We believe that full social freedom can only be based on common work, explicit agreement, and mutual support, and is not compatible with any variant of monopoly on social decision-making or on the sources of collective well-being, which of course includes the incompatibility of social freedom with the private appropriation of the work of others in the form of wages, whether in its variant of private business, or that of anonymous corporations, or even that of any type of "welfare state". ".
This means our explicit rejection of capitalism in any of its forms, the wage system, and surplus value.
In the same way, we reject and will reject the defenselessness of those who work in the private companies currently existing in Cuba -which emerges within the current transition to private capitalism, promoted from the officialdom-, the explicitation of the various discriminations harmful to dignity and the absence of socio-political guarantees for the exercise of protest and strike by those who work in any sector of the economy.
Private capitalism is not the remedy for the problems of Cuba and those of the world today, nor is any other variant of capitalism.
These positions have been made explicit by our Workshop on numerous occasions, in the most diverse media and spaces.
In addition, our Alfredo López Libertarian Workshop prides itself on having been one of the founding groups of the Anarchist Federation of Central America and the Caribbean, to which we are honored to belong and within which we act together with other communities and free people, equally anti-capitalist and anti-authoritarian, from many corners of our Continent.
Our concepts of anarchism and anti-authoritarianism include respect for any philosophical, political and economic opinions, and we firmly defend the right to freedom of expression.
But the exercise of such right implies the duty of transparency, and it is up to us to clarify that those of us who make up this Workshop have a consensus on the above, which makes us completely oblivious to any anarcho-capitalist proposals, that is, those that presume the compatibility between the possibility of a stateless society and the permanence of the economic regime of private appropriation of collective work, in the form of surplus value. We do not believe in the feasibility of such an "enterprise", and we make it very clear our distance from anarcho-capitalism in any of its forms, especially those promoted by the Ludwig von Mises Institutes and -in Cuba- by the self-styled Libertarian Party. Cuban José Martí, of which we are not part.
The most radical anti-capitalism is and will be one of the critical and constructive pillars of our group and its proposals for Cuba, the Americas and the planet.
