Lucy Parsons And The Revolutionary Anarchist Movement in Chicago
As all movements inevitably reach limits, it is pointless to bewail their passing—-as if they would go on growing indefnitely if only the participants were strategic enough.
In this installment, participants in Occupy Oakland trace its trajectory from origins to conclusion, exploring why it reached certain limits and what it will take for future movements to surpass them.
This installment analyzes the rhythms of struggle in Barcelona over the past several years, discussing the complex relationship between anarchists and larger social movements as popular struggles escalated and then subsided. It concludes with practical input on how anarchists can take advantage of a period of ebbing momentum.
The product of much collective discussion, this article explores the opportunities anarchists missed during the high point of the con ict by limiting themselves to the framework of the strike, and the risks they incurred by attempting to maintain it once it had entered a reformist endgame.
Writings on The Paris Commune, 1871 by Bakunin, Marx, Situationists, and Badiou.
The Situationist International (1957-1972) was a relatively small yet influential Paris-based group that had its origins in the avant garde artistic tradition. The situationists are best known for their radical politi- cal theory and their influence on the May 1968 student and worker revolts in France.

From shipyard resistance to direct democracy and community control
The word Anarchy comes from the Greek and its literal meaning is without government: the condition of a people who live without a constituted authority, without government.
A history of direct action in Rome by Alfredo M. Bonanno
For nearly sixty years, Malatesta was active in the anarchist movement as an agitator and as a propagandist. He was one of the movements most respected members as well as remaining to the end one of its most controversial.
An essay on the history of Errico Malatesta, 'The Life and Times of Malatesta' (Andrew Blackmore), as well as five essays by Malatesta himself: 'Anarchism and Organization', 'Ends and Means', 'Reformism', 'Defense of the Revolution', and 'An Anarchist Programme'.
Do it yourself. Don’t break up the global aspect of play by reducing it to roles. Defend your right to enjoy life. Obstruct capital’s death project. The latter can only enter the world of creativity and play by transforming who is playing into a ‘player’ the living creator into a dead person who cheats themselves into believing they are alive.
The mainstream portrays perpetrators as hopeless cases, who care about nothing in life other than power and control. While it is certainly clear that those who sexually assault, abuse, or rape others do care quite a bit about power and control, it is disingenuous to declare that those are the only things they care about.
This pamphlet was produced to make available information about the massive working class revolts in Argentina in 2001-2. These struggles were probably the most important action of the global proletariat in recent years. In time what happened in Argentina will come to be seen as an event of similar importance to May 1968 in France when 10 million workers went on wildcat strike for three weeks.
Tracts in Individualist Anarchism: the Best Of 1986-1999.
The aim of this pamphlet is to do nothing more than present an outline of what the author thinks are the key features of Mikhail Bakunin's anarchist ideas. Bakunin was extremely influential in the 19th century socialist move- ment, yet his ideas for decades have been reviled, distorted or ignored. On reading this pamphlet, it will become apparent that Bakunin has a lot to offer and that his ideas are not at all confused (as some writers would have us think) but make up a full coherent and well argued body of thought.

The following piece by IAS (Institute for Anarchist Studies) board member Ashanti Alston explores some of these questions. Alston, who was a member of the Black Panther Party and the Black Liberation Army, describes his encounter(s) with anarchism (which began while he was incarcerated for activities related to the Black Liberation Army). He touches upon some of the limitations of older visions of anarchism, the contemporary relevance of anarchism to black people, and some of the principles necessary to build a new revolutionary movement.
Broken Barricades is a critical look at the 2006 uprising in Oaxaca, Mexico. Starting as a teacher's strike an occupation struggle against the corrupt Oaxacan State and it's police and death squads. And still the fight continues not only for political freedom and equality but for the many political prisoners locked up from those earlier events.
Anarchist Strategies Against the Police
COINTELPRO was the FBI's secret program to undermine the popular upsurge which swept the country during the 1960s. Though the name stands for 'Counterintelligence Program,' the targets were not enemy spies. The FBI set out to eliminate 'radical' political opposition inside the US. When traditional modes of repression (exposure, blatant harassment, and prosecution for political crimes) failed to counter the growing insurgency, and even helped to fuel it, the Bureau took the law into its own hands and secretly used fraud and force to sabotage constutionally prorected political activity.
From the very start the Western media has grossly misrepresented these uprisings. The uprising in the South, centred on Basra, was portrayed as a Shia Muslim revolt. Whereas the insurrection in the North was reported as an exclusively Kurdish Nationalist uprising which demanded little more than an autonomous Kurdish region within Iraq. The truth is that the uprisings in both the North and South of Iraq were proletarian insurrections.

Chapter 4 of 'The Conquest of Bread'
To its credit, the women’s movements have raised the issue of women’s revolt in terms other than class-struggle ones, class struggle the only historical driving force seen by the Marxists, who have clarified the economic exploitation of women not paid for housework and child-rearing but have not challenged the reproduction of the power male workers wield compared to women workers. Capitalism has an ideological need of this form of social organisation.
A South African Anarchist Pamphlet. Anarchists recognise that women are specially oppressed as a sex (they face oppression as women as well as due to their class position). We call this oppression sexism. As Anarchists, we oppose this oppression on principle and in practice.
Everywhere, anarchism is on the upswing as a political philosophy--everywhere, that is, except the academy. Anarchists repeatedly appeal to anthropologists for ideas about how society might be reorganized on a more egalitarian, less alienating basis. Anthropologists, terrified of being accused of romanticism, by and large respond with silence... But what if they didn't? In this classic piece, David Graeber explores the implications of linking anthropology to anarchism, and sketches the beginnings of a new field.
Capitalism in the Industrial and Information Age: A Family History
The Breakdown of the U.S. Army in Vietnam
The articles in this pamphlet are all translations of articles originally written in German by the communist group Wildcat and deal with various aspects of the “War on Terror”. Despite the sometimes mediocre translations they are well worth making the effort to read because they are some of the best articles about capitalism’s current war spree available. The essence of the argument that runs through all these articles is that the capitalist world order is in crisis and in desperation the response is war, first against Afghanistan and then Iraq. The “War on Terror” is thus an expression of capitalist weakness not strength.
This pamphlet was prepared for and distributed at the protests against the WTO meeting in Sydney November 2002 and slightly modified in December 2003.
The unemployed Bengali and the Irish call center worker experience a dispossession and a domination that are basically similar, though never addressed in what they have in common. The September 11, 2001 attack and the ensuing counter-offensive set these two proletarians even further away from each other.
On the Finer Points of the Recent Revolt in Ferguson, MO: the St. Louis area has a history of police being shot at, and police are very aware of that. The police know people are armed and willing to shoot. From the beginning of the uprising, rebels made this very clear: one of the first things to happen after they killed Mike Brown was shots being fired into the air.
Excerpts from Robert F. Williams on Black Struggle and Armed Self-Defense in Monroe, NC
As we have seen with historic colonialism, slavery, and apartheid, oppressors manage to vilify and demonize their victims in ordre to keep their regime in place. The smoke-screen created by the American and Israeli government is no different.
This essay on the foundations of the authority of the state marks a stage in the development of concern with problems of political authority and moral autonomy.
A spark of anarchist rebellion
The apocalypse began with the advent of our current form of life based on industrial production. It is easy to assume that there is no alternative to this form of life, that the way we live in this present moment is simply a reflection of the way things are.
In times of crisis, a space of freedom returns, and the possibility of a rupture with the present opens. History, long banished to dreary scholastic books, returns to us fresh and alive. To push away that which is closest to us, our very form of life, and see it objectively – this might seem impossible. Yet it is not: the first step is to give our form of life a name, to identify it as something finite in time and space, so capable of ending. This perpetual present that has its only favor being the certainty of its own destruction has a name: capitalism
A Sharpening of the Anarchist Struggle in Barcelona
Documents from Chicago's Clandestine Abortion Service 1968-1973. This collection may not only to be viewed in terms of abortion rights, or even strictly in terms of the quest for women to have control over their bodies, but also in terms of any group of people face-up against the onslaught of modern-day slavery (in all its forms) taking control over their lives. Jane is an inspiration— a beautiful example that battles can be won without begging. Today they can be seen as a bold display of an effective underground organization operating with utter disregard for the letter of the law— women taking their lives into their own hands and taking responsibility for their actions, all the while without asking for anyone’s permission.
Stories, Lessons, and Inspiration from the Greek Anarchist Movement
The SI [Situationist International] must be counted as a basic reference point for any future revolutionary movement. The SIʼs powerful critique of the revolutionary herself may have degenerated in the period of counter-revolution into a dead-end addiction to navel-gazing; but this cannot obscure the continued necessity of engaging with their arguments. Despite the attention the SI receives, and the attempts over the years by various toss-pots to claim them for modern art or cultural studies, the SI remains in some sense irrecuperable.

In March 1994, the French government wanted to give its tender young wage slaves a 20% pay cut. The State must have figured it would be good training for their future careers as exploited human capital. But a funny thing happened on the way to the bank: those vulnerable young workers stood up and told the State to royally (or rather democratically) fuck off. It took a month of demos, protests, and riots, becoming ever bigger, more violent, and out of control, for the government to finally back down.
Accounts of sitdown strikes and workplace occupations in the UK and around the world
The morale, discipline, and battleworthiness of the U.S. Armed Forces are, with a few salient exceptions, lower and worse than at any time in this century and possibly in the history of the United States. By every conceivable indicator, our army that remains in Vietnam is in a state approaching collapse, with individual units avoiding or having refused combat, murdering their officers and non-commissioned officers, drug-ridden and dispirited where not near mutinous. Elsewhere than Vietnam the situation is nearly as serious.

Essays on the current state of Palestine
Everyone carries within themselves the germs of this lust for power, and every germ, as we know, because of a basic law of life, necessarily must develop and grow, if only it finds in its environment favourable conditions. These con- ditions in human society are the stupidity, igno- rance, apathy, indifference, and servile habits of the masses - so one may say justly that it is the masses themselves that produce those exploiters, oppressors, despots and executioners of humanity, of whom they are the victims.

The fact that arms were brought out so quickly in response to the Stalinist provocation says a lot for the Catalonian massesʼ immense capacities for autonomy; but the fact that the order to surrender issued by the anarchist ministers was so quickly obeyed demonstrates how much autonomy for victory they still lacked. Tomorrow again it will be the workersʼ degree of autonomy that will decide our fate.

Warfare has significantly changed in the last thirty years. From 1945 until about 1975 most wars were part of the worldwide movement of decolonisation that saw the formation of dozens of new states in Africa and Asia. Since then most wars have been civil wars within the decolonised countries, sometimes continuing directly from the national liberation war as competing factions fought over the prize of the new state as in Angola. While these wars all have their own proximate causes rooted in particular histories certain similarities can be discerned. These essays examine those similarities

The context of a proletarian Uprising
In this classic, thoroughly documented pamphlet, the late Sam Dolgoff, lifelong anarchist activist, convincing- ly demonstrates the relevance of the classical anarchist tradition if the face of bourgeois neo-Anarchism, distor- tions by historians, and social complexity, administrative problems, and technological advance. It doubles as a discussion of Anarchist principles, revolutionary pre- conditions, and the problems of post-revolutionary reconstruction and re-organisation.
Building upon the federalist and libertarian socialist ideas of his friend Pierre- Joseph Proudhon as well as those in the European labour movement, Bakunin shaped anarchism into its modern form. His revolutionary, class struggle based anarchism soon became the dominant form of anarchism in the First International. He combated the state socialism of Marx and Engels and laid the foundations for both communist-anarchism and anarcho-syndicalism. His predictions about Marxism have been confirmed and his critique of capitalism, the state and religion are just as valid as when they were first expounded. Both the Russian and Spanish revolutions have confirmed the power of his ideas on revolution.
Following the police killing of 15-year-old Alexandros Grigoropolous in downtown Athens, Greece was wracked by weeks of unprecedented rioting. Anarchists and students, supported and often joined by significant swaths of the population, clashed with police, destroyed corporate and government property and occupied government buildings, trade union offices, and media outlets, not to mention universities. This zine contains a timeline, an analysis, and an interview with participants of the riot.
The nature and strategy of Bolshevism
An Account of What Happened in Seattle and Especially in the Seattle Labor Movement, During the General Strike, February 6 To 11, 1919. These writings, by various people at different times, have been brought together to help us to remember the past and create the future.
From coast to coast went the report that a revolution was imminent in Seattle. A General Strike had been called in sympathy with the shipyard workers, and no one knew what would come of it. Both before and after the strike, government officials in Washington and other prominent persons, declared that Bolshevism had attempted to make its first appearance in the Northwest.
The following pamphlet is a short introduction to the Spanish revolution of 1936-39. However, to do this it has been necessary to give a brief account of the history of the Spanish labour movement before and after the revolution. Although a large number of books and articles have been written on the history of Spanish anarchism and the revolution, there are no cheap pamphlets available on the subject and it seemed appropriate to publish this work on the 50th anniversary of the outbreak of the revolution - 1986 - to remedy this situation.
This brief and vivid statement of the role of revolution- ary periods in human progress is as fresh as when it first appeared as an article in Le Révolté in Geneva in 1880, - later revised slightly and printed as a pamphlet in French. The part referring specifically to the French Revolution has been omitted.
Rebellion at the Convict Lease in Tennessee's coalfields, 1891-1895. Something happened in Tennessee, something almost unimaginable to the mine owners and politicians of that state. When the companies tried to intimidate their workers by bringing in convict labor to take over their jobs, the workers responded by storming the stockades, freeing the prison- ers, and loading them onto freight trains bound for Nash- ville and Knoxville and places far away...The Tennessee convict war was one of the largest insurrections in American working-class history. And yet, unfolding at exactly the same time as the more publicized labor wars in Homestead, Pennsylvania, and Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, it was largely ignored.
August 14-31, 1980
A history of radical Minnesota. Substantive, radical change is only accomplished with a firm understanding of the past, and it is with this in mind that the RNC Welcoming Committee has labored to produce this text. Minnesota has a rich history of radical struggle and, as history does, it informs our movement today. We have powerful examples of the tenacity of the human spirit- in the land we love, and amongst the people we live with and those who came before- and this zine is meant to educate people about that heritage.
If 1968 was anyone's year, it was the year of the students. From Peking to Prague to Paris to Berkeley, students sparked the movements which marked 1968, and more than any other group, it was their international practice which made the New Left a global movement.
In this year we commemorated the uprising of the Spanish people against the Fascist powers, who, in collaboration with the Catholic Church and the military, were preparing the overthrow of the Spanish republic in 1936. This pamphlet deals with the resistance by the independent labour movement led by the CNT-FAI and with the attacks directed against them by, among others, Stalinists, which eventually led to Franco’s army seizing power.
Revolutionary thinkers have been saying that the age of vanguardism is over for most of a century now. Outside of a handful of tiny sectarian groups, it's almost impossible to find a radical intellectuals seriously believe that their role should be to determine the correct historical analysis of the world situation, so as to lead the masses along in the one true revolutionary direction.
Historical roots (1880-1930)
Forty thousand accused, fteen thousand 'passed' through prison, six thousand sentenced, almost always without any guarantee of the right to a defense. Behind the numbers, the 'special prisons', torture, solitary con nement, the best part of two generations reduced to silence, forced into exile.
Born into poverty and plagued by it her entire life, educated by nuns in a convent school, chronically ill, the survivor of a nearly successful assassination attempt, and dead at a tragically early age, Voltairine de Cleyre doesn't seem a likely candidate to become what Paul Avrich called 'a greater literary talent than any other American anarchist.' But de Cleyre was undeniably one of the most important anarchist thinkers in the US or any other country. Greatly admired by her contemporaries for her brilliant writing and tireless schedule of public speaking, her ability to approach the most complex issues with a mixture of common sense, passion, and clarity makes her works as relevant today as they were a century ago.
The decline and fall of the spectacle-commodity economy
A chapter of the revolutionart movement in the german nacy, 1918-1919
e moral and political signi cance of thought only appears in those rare moments of history where 'Things fall apart; the center cannot hold; Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world;; where 'The best lack all conviction, while the worst / Are full of passionate intensity;. In these crucial moments, thought ceases to be a marginal a air to political questions. When the whole world lets itself be carried away without thinking by what the many do and believe, those who think nd themselves exposed, because their refusal to join with others is patent and becomes thus a sort of action.

On the current uprooting of the disposessed. To the Wanderers is a text put together by some Italian comrades and the details about detention centers and immigration laws refer to the situation in Italy, but the conditions under which undocumented aliens are forced to live and the universal uprooting of which these conditions and this forced wandering are a symptom are universal. I think this text provides an important analysis for all of us who are seeking to take back the capacity to determine our lives.

The question is not: who has the guns? but rather: what do the people with the guns do? 10,000 or 100,000 proletarians armed to the teeth are nothing if they place their trust in anything beside their own power to change the world. Otherwise, the next day, the next month or the next year, the power whose authority they recognize will take away the guns which they failed to use against it.
