(en) cab anarquista: Down with the coup, misery and neoliberal devastation! (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Wed, 22 Sep 2021 08:51:28 +0300

No dictatorship and terror of the police-military forces! No more misery and privatization policies that break the lives of the popular masses and devour through the market everything that is common, collective, public, solidary. ---- That's not a choice! It is a crisis pointed out as a weapon to govern the country with maximum adjustment to popular conquests and with all the violence that the liberal model supposes in front of a people severely attacked by the deadly pandemic that is born from the bowels of the dominant system, from social damage and irreparable environmental effects that it leaves in everything it touches.
The coup noise of the 7th of September of that year only made more evident what is in progress. We are no longer living the same power game of bourgeois democracy that the system used to a part of society in the last period of political life. The reformist parties or less, the PT and center collaborationism, should have already learned from this. If not for the historical formation of Brazilian peripheral capitalism, made using the techniques of colonial power, at least with the coup artifacts applied in recent years in the country or experienced in our region of the continent. Anyone who looks too far in the 2022 presidential election makes a lethal mistake in the resistance lines. The far right wages open class struggle and does not throw its life into the results of the ballot boxes, which at least means that the ferocious beast is loose, it has lost its shame,

Pocketnarism is a "battle-stick" that was stimulated by the imperialist power, which was useful as a violent element for the class struggle and the government practices for austerity that neoliberal capitalism supposes. It cannot be said too much that the Economy Minister's agendas of misery and hunger, which were supported by the liberal right and ended by the "market", required the dirty work of the militia, the noisy machine of large-scale disinformation and the coup intimidation of the militia to move forward. Until recently, they relied on the selective game and were very friendly to the judiciary. That's right, from that elite of the toga that is now the reason for all the noise. A configuration of elements that supported each other and formed a strategic situation,

It's after the quarrels upstairs. This does not erase the precious and decisive time that the ruling classes formed a single block to take advantage and stretch the rope of the police state that emerged to govern the adjustment. They pushed us with all these bitter policies of privatization of gains and socialization of losses to sink us into the wage squeeze, unemployment, informal work, to make the price of food, gas, electricity, gasoline escalate on our poverty.

The Brazilian state moved towards the strategic formation of a political power based on a wave of reactionary forces, within the framework of a world system of crises and revolts after the financial capitalist delinquency of 2008. And it could only evolve in the context of the 2018 elections as brute coup, in case of electoral defeat, or by the ferocious escalation of the extreme right in the Planalto through a military government, with the biggest savagery of the militia in politics since the pact of the New Republic. In this direction coincided the tricks of judicial corruption made to change the rules to the taste of the system and, of course, the political phenomenon of pocketbookism and the figure of the savior.

Congress and Supreme helped the far right advance
We are anarchists, from the militant project organized in the CAB and we raise the flag against the capitalist system and all oppression. Congress and the Supreme are conservative mechanisms, reproducing the system in a power game that cancels out any change that intends to go deeper into the structures that dominate and oppress. Bolsonaro had deliberate help from these institutions to scale political power, and they had to twist and distort bourgeois legality to carve out space and make time for the far right to rule.

We will never forget that Bolsonaro was a historical creature of the neoliberal reaction campaign, incited by Globo and Lava Jato, which opened an ideological space for the extreme right to occupy the streets, social networks and win the political decision it has today. The type of radicalization of pocketnarism occupies the space that leaves the bankruptcy of bourgeois democracy and moves to beat and persecute the popular movement, to liquidate together any mechanism of popular participation, individual rights, public and collective freedoms.

It attacks the unprecedented political space it gained with the support of the system and wages shameless class struggle against popular and working class organizations. It certainly incites a desire for a conservative rupture, which escalates authoritarian and violent forms of government through the crisis, which politically exploits the tutelage or active collaboration of uniforms. It "radicalizes" with harsh and extreme speech a more visible region of the power structure. Before embracing with the Centrão were the politicians, the parties and the rule of exchanges and collusions. Now they aim at the most elitist cover of the robes of bourgeois democracy. And it goes on making reactionary agitation, stirring up this imaginary of frustration with the stage of the social pact that was the norm of another period.

Freedom only for business exploitation
Pocketnarism is an offensive and authoritarian way of escalating the representation by the figure of the infallible leader and the desire for tutelage of the repressive forces. The people in this scheme come at most as a crowd, as a cheering fan, who shouts, who curses, who is always in a latent state and can invade the playing field. The market is supreme, property and corporate game play, and the only freedom that this dominant model presupposes is that property despoil peoples as a colonial, racist, extractive and ecocide project. From exploiting the working class without any limit, to nullifying each conquest made to the basis of the struggle that took a chunk out of the boss's greed and control. Bolsonaro and Guedes do not touch on the wealth and income of the rich classes. It is a project that is the deadly enemy of a model of collectivization of power based on direct democracy,

Those who classify Bolsonaro's actions as insanity are mistaken. He doesn't talk to himself! He convenes a movement with powerful businesspeople and groups, for whom the lives of the poor are either worth nothing or only serve as a workhorse for the owners of the "economy". This is the capitalism that governs the world's peripheries through the techniques of colonial and slave power. Companies in the agribusiness chain or billionaires like the Havan worm, for example, that financed and actively supported the coup agitation that went to Brasília and on Avenida Paulista to maneuver on September 7th. Who locks and gave the orders to block lanes on several highways and highways across the country.

The bourgeois and oligarchic sectors that are in open dispute for political power with Bolsonaro, who have split, are certainly in a hurry to regain control of the game, but they are very careful with some collateral elements. They are afraid of opening too much space for a popular movement to come out from below, grow in the public arena and fight for decisions that affect their rules, privileges and fortunes. They want at all costs to separate the Bolsonaro ruler from the neoliberal model of governing through privatization, competition and the precariousness of the market on work and life. Removing the embarrassment cannot mean, under any circumstances, losing power over the guidelines that decide how we organize our lives in common and where we go.

Many things may be at stake in the negotiation that brought the 2016 neoliberal politician and coup-maker Michel Temer back onto the stage. On the table is the demand of the economic and financial power of large capitals not to let the plan of liberal adjustment and privatization get stuck in the midst of institutional collapse. The "letter to the nation" that Temer blew to Bolsonaro is an "out of the way" that the market has urgently needed in the Administrative Reform, the Marco Temporal, a package of privatization of public companies, and has no time to waste.

Defeat bourgeois power and militarism
We fight and we want a break with the bourgeois power, a radical and deep end that breaks the system of poverty and violence that hits us so much. Increased police power or any kind of military intervention is no way out for the lower classes. Whoever calls the generals to the scene does this to maintain the miserable order of things through military tutelage. Brazilian bourgeois democracy, as a game space for oligarchies and collaborators, has a very embodied colonial-racist formation and is articulated with the exception that has never been disarmed and has always been a machine for controlling the penalty of native peoples, dissidents and classes considered dangerous.

Let no one be mistaken! Anyone who speaks of military intervention, dictatorship or soldiers in the street speaks of repeating dictatorship practices to silence the people and make them go hungry. That's why we say out loud: Out of the military! From politics and the streets! Don't forget! Never forgive!

No dictatorship of any kind, nor these political forms of representation controlled by the oligarchies we call bourgeois democracy, give decision to the oppressed classes to change their lives. A strong and independent line of grassroots movement is on the agenda to fight for equality and share the wealth, making important decisions vital to life with direct democracy. No homeland savior or infallible police state leadership. No more governing by the garrote of the police and the market economy.

To put an end to the genocidal government of Bolsonaro/Militares/Guedes we will have the challenge of making the struggle not take the brakes of the union and party bureaucracies, not be captured by electoral calculation and advance powerfully, with the rebellious mark of class independence, against the whole system that creates the genocides and butchers of the people.

We will have to dismantle the very oppression machine that took Marielle's life, which daily attacks black, peripheral and indigenous people. Machine to destroy and produce of an extractive capitalism that devours the Amazon, indigenous territories, quilombolas and peasants with mining and agribusiness, poison plants, expropriating bodies, territories, biodiversity, community goods and values that are non-negotiable for our peoples. Which will never be resources for commerce and the financial quotation of the capitalist market.

Deadly machine that liquidates our pensions and the social security of the poor in the name of fiscal management that yields spectacular profits for the banks and the financial system. That liquidates the workers' victories that came out of historic struggles and imposed limits on so much employer abuse. Liberal reforms that empower companies and the market to increase exploitation, not taking care of illnesses, accidents, rest days and sucking up, to the maximum degree, precarious, underemployed work, with miserable wages and often late.

The system fucks the Brazilian people with an expensive and precarious life that cannot withstand the pressure of tariffs and prices of the basics of popular demands. That punishes women with more misery and oppression, that leaves health and education in a state of collapse and dismantles the entire solidarity network of social assistance.

The anarchist struggle in this period
We are historically the libertarian current of socialism. We fight for direct democracy, another way of living and doing politics, more rights and freedoms, organization from the bottom up, decision on projects, services, more public investment to tackle social inequalities at the root.

By direct democracy we mean: 1) the construction, on the ground of equality, of a strong popular movement that fights and organizes itself independently of governments and bosses; 2) the popular right to take decisions through councils, plebiscites and referendums to cancel the adjustment that increases social inequality, massacres the lives of the poorest and liquidates the rights of workers; 3) the fundamental principle of popular participation, the defense of broad freedoms of expression, association, expression, diversity, social and individual rights.

In the social and economic crisis that always breaks out in the popular mass, in the working class that is in tatters, while the millionaire or billionaire continues in luxury, only the people save the people! With mutual support, direct democracy, with an independent and strong popular movement fighting and building another life into their own hands. The allies of those who fight against the system of hunger and death are not on the other side, in the classes that exploit and oppress.

The strategic alliance that can change everything is in the peoples, sectors and groups that make up these oppressed classes, who are the only ones who can break the structures of domination and barbarism into which the elites have thrown us. To gain strength in this class struggle that faces pocketnarism and neoliberalism that has been razing everything behind the institutional breakdown, only with the revolt of these working and oppressed masses, where black people and poor women from the periphery are the most expressive face. A Front of the oppressed and oppressed that imposes itself by force of the streets and territories, of mutual support networks, that cuts the authoritarian pace of pocketnarism and, together with its defeat, advances with popular power beyond bourgeois democracy and this entire capitalist model of each for himself, precarious life, suffering and empty pot.

Popular direct action! Fight plan to ignite the revolt in the periphery!
Front of the oppressed and the oppressed to unite the rebellion that comes from below!
Only the people save the people!
Down with the coup, misery and neoliberal devastation!
