Date Mon, 2 Aug 2021 11:01:07 +0300


The first day of the 3rd Liberal Festival of Social, Class and International Solidarity opened with the event "International Solidarity Will Win. From Chiapas, Chile and Colombia to Turkey, the insurgency is always alive, "said Roni Bar-On, a Member of the Knesset for Kadima. The participation of comrades from Colombia, Chile and Turkey was an opportunity to gain a clearer picture of the conditions of exploitation and oppression and of the state-parastate attacks they face, as well as of the resistance. ---- We thank the comrades from Chile, Colombia and Turkey who participated in the event and shared with us their racing experiences, the comrade from the blog "tierra y libertad" with her important contribution both in the discussion and in the translation of a part but also those who still helped in the translations and technical requirements of the specific event.

Below you will find the presentation position of the comrades of the Anarchist Political Organization:

International solidarity will win. From Chiapas, Chile and Colombia to Turkey, the uprising is always alive.

We welcome you to the 3rd Liberal Festival of Social, Class and International Solidarity of the Anarchist Political Organization and to the first event that takes place in this context. We are very happy to be here today and have the opportunity to share our thoughts on a range of issues, especially at a time of increasing repression, intensification of exploitation and oppression policies and in the midst of the covid-19 pandemic.

Today we have the pleasure of being with us from the blog "tierra y libertad", as well as online the freedom group "V Liba Libre" (Bogota-Colombia), anarchist militant Mapuche from Chile and "DAF" (Revolutionary Anarchist Federation) from Turkey, to share the experiences of struggles, uprisings and resistances from different parts of the world, the context in which they manifest and the anarchist-libertarian characteristics grafted into these processes, once again defining international solidarity as the weapon that peoples have to resist the rulers and build this society of equality, solidarity and freedom.

The system in which we live, the state and the capitalist, has shown in the last year and a half - since the outbreak of the pandemic - its most anti-social face, deepening modern totalitarianism at the expense of those from all over the world.

In the present historical phase, the bankrupt political, ideological, value and economic regime, no longer promising anything more than wars, exclusions and impoverishment, is shielded from the prospect of a dynamic expression of generalized social discontent, both locally and internationally. It is the period when states and bosses vigorously try to impose on the social majority their proclamations of the "end of history", striving to convince in every way that there is no other alternative for human societies than that where the great social majority will be forced to live stigmatized by misery and poverty, hardship and disease, wars and disasters. The transnational formations are working to expand their power by military means, with disastrous consequences first for the peoples of Africa and Asia and then for every people that comes their way. The Western coalition and its local allies, having already launched military strikes on Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Palestine and Syria, plundering much of the world for centuries, are preparing for the next step. The transition from regional conflicts "by proxies" to the generalized war, in order to maintain the blood-stained "acquis" of their declining empire. Having already militarily attacked Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Palestine and Syria, plundering most of the planet for centuries, they are preparing for the next step. The transition from regional conflicts "by proxies" to the generalized war, in order to maintain the blood-stained "acquis" of their declining empire.

The transition from regional conflicts "by proxies" to the generalized war, in order to maintain the blood-stained "acquis" of their declining empire.

The state and capitalist machine is attempting to intensify inequalities, oppression and exploitation. Aiming to increase power and control, the government does not hesitate to wage war on the periphery, while continuing to campaign against the Plebian strata in the West, establishing the bleak reality of modern totalitarianism, at the same time as the covid-19 pandemic. acts as an accelerator of the overall systemic crisis. The Emergency Regime is expanded, consolidating the State of Exception, as a basic norm of life organization, and shaping the conditions for the formation of the Society-Camp.

This generalized attack of the rulers is carried out with the ultimate goal of the complete control of human societies, the imposition of absolute power over them, the plunder of the natural world and the wealth-producing resources.

The notion that things could not be otherwise is what in principle underlies the world of power. It is as if we have to accept exploitation and oppression, that the few will reap the wealth and the many who produce it will die of wars, hunger and disease. Those who do not die will live as persecuted refugees and migrants or, at best, live in a permanent state of exclusion, which constantly produces internal enemies.

The only "answer" of the system to its total and deep crisis, to its own contradictions that arise from its basic principle, that of oppression and exploitation of man by man is... WAR & FASCISM.

So, in the face of the global state and capitalist aggression, which targets the vast social majority, their social and class resistances spring up from below in every corner of the earth, creating continuous mounds in the exercise of domination. From the demonstrations, the self-organized and unmediated forms of struggle, the strikes, the squatting and the clashes with the repressive forces of the ubiquitous political and economic bosses to the uprisings that erupt as a message of constant resistance and the Revolutions that continue to remind It has never happened in history that building another society, where there will be no human-to-human exploitation, is possible.

And it is these struggles that create a mosaic of resistances on the map, that unite the thread in the time of the idea of social emancipation and prepare the ground for the world social revolution.

From the indigenous communities in Chiapas and the mountains of Mexico, which since the 1994 uprising have continued to build their autonomy, sending a constant message of solidarity to those below and of resistance against global political and economic bosses. Despite attacks by paramilitary groups and the assassination of militants such as Samir Flores Soberanes 2 years ago, the Mexican state's repressive operations, their continued blockade and state plans to plunder their territories and hand them over to big business, continue their struggle, defending dignity, life, land and freedom. While these days, after a long journey, after a reverse course from that of the conquistadors,

From Chile, where the vast majority of society has faced a total onslaught on every aspect of social life. From Pinochet's junta to democratic governments, the regime has for years imposed, through continuous restructuring, burdensome measures of plunder of social wealth, privatizations and harsh repressive measures, while the Chilean state's colonial war against indigenous peoples continues unabated. Against this condition of the total and full-fledged state and capitalist attack on the people from below, mass and militant student demonstrations broke out on the occasion of the increase of the ticket price, where they were the beginning of the uprising, the explosion of the accumulated anger of the oppressed. An uprising that generalized and exposed the true nature of the state, power and democracy, confronted with brutal repressive violence, killings, torture, disappearances of militants, imprisonment and injuries. An uprising that showed that nothing is over, that it is time to change everything.

From Colombia, where the state, aided by capital and organized crime, is on the one hand intensifying the exploitation of the poor and oppressed by anti-social poverty policies, at the same time that the drug trade is the main pillar of its economy and on the other hand it unleashes its savage repressive attack on those who fight for life and dignity, in indigenous communities, workers, youth, students. From the criminal state management of the pandemic, where the money intended for the needs of the health system was given to big businessmen and bankers and the use of the pandemic to enforce the anti-social plans of the Colombian state, the escalation of class exclusions and antagonisms with half the country's population living below the poverty line, the cooperation of economic and political bosses and drug traffickers to plunder and accumulate land, to the point of torture and cold-blooded killing of militants. In the face of this bleak situation, the people of Colombia have revolted and are on the streets every day from April 28 until today, fighting incessantly and incessantly, despite murderous state violence, torture, arrests, shootings, and rapes. protesters.

From Turkey, where after the uprising in Taxim Square the regime, fearing new social upheavals, increased the control mechanisms in the society, aiming primarily at the repression of the fighters but also those who dare to protest, imposing a permanent emergency regime. A comprehensive crackdown on the Turkish state, which in recent years has manifested itself in military operations in Kurdish areas, mass persecutions and assassinations of resistance movements and revolutionary organizations. A campaign where it intensified even more, after the failed coup in July 2016 and the expansion of the state of emergency. The Erdogan regime used the coup attempt on the one hand to purge all state institutions and on the other to impose a total war on the internal enemy, to dismantle class and social resistance. At the same time he gave the impetus to his followers along with the gray wolves to attack the neighborhoods and hangouts of leftist and anarchist militants and organizations. However, the social and class resistance in Turkey does not stop breaking out, but is constantly expressed with thousands of people on the streets, with student mobilizations that, although faced with repression, are increasing and manifesting themselves in more and more places, with strikes, with labor mobilizations. against the impunity of the bosses, with demonstrations against patriarchy, gender-based violence,

From Palestine, where the racist state of Israel seeks to normalize terror and death, generally applying conditions of increased control and brutal repression, with modern apartheid imposed and violent repressive attacks by the state against Palestinians, from their territories, the embargo on Gaza, the wall that has been built around it, shortages of basic goods and medical care, military outposts, arrests, torture, sniper killings and bombings. The state of Israel is the key and stable ally of the Western bloc in power in its quest to expand its interests in the wider Middle East. Thus the subjugation of the resistance people of Palestine and therefore the absolute sovereignty of Israel in the region is a demand for the leading forces of the geopolitical arena. In the face of this generalized attack, the Palestinian people are struggling, paving the way for the military occupation and the war that the state of Israel has declared, being a thorn in the side of the global economic and political bosses.

From Myanmar, where resistance to the February 1 military coup, despite counting hundreds of dead and thousands wounded and imprisoned, was expressed through strikes and demonstrations, with militant militias staging to defend themselves against the oppressed and the oppressed. anarchists at the forefront of social conflicts. The intensification of intra-capitalist rivalries in the wider region will mean even more violence, oppression and impoverishment for the peoples of southeastern Asia, where for years the great powers have created a suffocating field of hostilities and its peoples are trying to gain States and capital.

From the US, with police violence being one of the main pillars of a state that attacks frantically to maintain its power, having provoked and engaged in hundreds of imperialist military operations, bombing civilians, looting the capitalist region, terrorizing the planet, as well as the people of the American state themselves, and with even greater intensity the black, indigenous and wider poor populations. With the harsh class structure of American society, where a small elite owns the vast wealth of the country, where thousands of workers are killed because of their working conditions, where state management of the pandemic has led to countless deaths of the lower classes, the poor and the excluded. In these US, then,

From Rojava, with its revolutionary people aiming for democratic confederation and not for the creation of another nation-state, replacing the previous oppression with a new one. But with ecology and women's emancipation at its core and bringing a multicultural identity, it unites Kurds, Arabs, Assyrians and other population groups, builds structures of social organization and self-defense against state, capitalist and fascist attacks, opposes conspiracies and military invasions of the Turkish state. It transcends the borders of Syria and inspires peoples in the wider Middle East, proposing a model of social self-organization from below through collective self-government, competitive with the authoritarian,

The most recent example is the passage of a state of emergency bill that allows the use of counterterrorism law in their territories, the militant mobilizations of the indigenous peoples of the United States and Canada, such as the Sioux and Mohawk, against the attempted gas pipeline and oil and hydrocarbon extraction and consequently the destruction of the natural world. Until the resistance breaks out in the European metropolises, where with the pandemic acting as a catalyst, the state and capitalist attack is constantly intensifying and the establishment of modern totalitarianism is being attempted. against the attempted gas and oil pipelines and the extraction of hydrocarbons and consequently the destruction of the natural world.

In the face of the bankrupt world of power, state and capital in the face of modern totalitarianism imposed on the entire world map in increasingly acute terms and on the occasion of the Covid-19 pandemic, where states further invest in militarization for repression, the control and silencing of societies, only class and international solidarity between peoples, the organized counterattack of the exploited classes and the overthrow of the world of capitalism and the state at a global level can shape the conditions for the creation of a society of prosperity, equality , peace and justice, without exploitation, wars and disorienting rivalries. As anarchists, we stand by those who resist and revolt in every corner of the earth,

The flame of the uprising continues to spread to various parts of the world map, often with a sequence of events that not only affect one country, but have a clear international character. Local uprisings are already paving the way for the future, and it is the task of the anarchists to detect, study and analyze the new features that are emerging, in order to embrace and spread even more the project of anarchy, libertarian communism and social revolution. With the risk of reformism always present, the further internationalization of the libertarian forces in the near future is particularly important,

From France and Spain bills for deprivation of liberty and the USA to racist police killings, from state repression against anyone resisting in Turkey and state terrorism on the social body in Greece, from Rojava's revolution and fighting Palestine, from the military coup in Myanmar to the uprisings and indigenous resistance in Colombia, Chile and Mexico, we stand by them from below wherever they are fighting for their freedom and dignity and for a world that will fit many worlds.
