egypt like the sea

Social revolution is like the sea. Its waves chase one another, crash against the obstacles they encounter, crushing them or backing down. With all the violence of an indomitable rush, they destroy, blow after blow any trace of power, of exploitation and oppression. A first wave, immense and unexpected, swept away the dictatorship of Murabak. A second one put the army that was about to take over power on its knees. A third one is rising today against the new order that the islamists are trying to impose.

The real revolutionary storm does not obey any party, any boss, any power. On the contrary, these are its irreconcilable enemies. They will be swept away as the storm intensifies. Between the social revolution that will subvert any relation based on exploitation and power and the impostors, the bosses, the masters, the political parties, the capitalist and the authoritarians of any shade, there cannot be anything other than struggle til the bitter end. Because freedom and the end of exploitation, imply the destruction of capitalism and of any power.

It is not surprising though that those aspiring to power try to ride the revolutionary wave that is crashing through the land of the Nile; it is not surprising that the new leaders try to impose themselves through lies and deception, aided by the media and by the local governments who talk about the “opposition”; it is not surprising that the authentic revolutionary rush cannot be translated into any party program, into any referendum, into any flag or that it is not recognized by any stronghold of power around the world. Certainly those who are fighting today in Egypt against the current power do not make up a homogeneous bloc, just as not everyone aspires to real social revolution.

The ongoing struggles are crossed by thousands of contradictions: between those in opposition who demand for a constituent assembly without an overwhelming islamist influence and those who do not see any salvation in parliamentary democracy; from those who are fighting for wage increases and improved work conditions to those who want to do away with all the bosses; from those who struggle without ever putting into question their prejudices, the dominant morals, the traditions which have brought thousands of years of oppression to those who struggle in the same way against the suffocating power of the state and against the suffocating weight of patriarchy in one battle; from those who wave the national flag to those who tie their own struggle with the one of the exploited from any latitude... Perhaps it's exactly here where the revolutionary strength of the current revolution in Egypt is found: beyond all contradictions, it is born in the guts of the exploited and the oppressed. It is here that we can find real struggle.

What is happening in Egypt can find echoes everywhere in the world where people are struggling. While for years the islamists of any tendency have presented themselves as social fighters in front of millions of people around the world, perhaps their mask will now fall in Egypt, as it is now happening in other countries (for example in the south of Tunisia). The social revolution in Egypt will be the tomb of the islamists and religious reactionaries that are disguised themselves as struggling for alleged social emancipation.

At the basis of international revolutionary solidarity there is one's own recognition in the battles that are unleashed elsewhere. Remaining spectators of the insurrectional surges in Egypt can only contribute to its isolation and its suppression. To sustain and reinforce the real revolutionary surges over there, those who want to end with any exploitation and dominion, we need to act. Joining the fray armed with the idea of freedom, the real one.

We think, therefore, that it is appropriate to make a call out to pass to the attack, to support, where we stand, with our ideas and our means the current revolutionary wave in Egypt. If in Cairo, Alexandria, Malhalla, etc. thousands of people are jumping into the fray because they aspire to a new world, let's make sure that every representative of the Egyptian state and capital everywhere in the world finds this conflict brought to their front door. That every statist, capitalist and servant of the world-order feels on their necks the breath of the social revolution.

Let's sow the bonds of action among the insurrectional hotbeds in the whole world!
For the destruction of all power!




Yeah... not trying to sound like a dick, but this "temporary fix" doesn't seem very temporary any more and is really getting on my nerves.


We are putting finishing touches on the new site now. Expect initial rollout next week.

Ah, thank you.

Did Egypt consult the orders of that Anarchist International dude and destroy the pyramids yet?

HA! "Seems like it." "un grupo de manifestantes tiró abajo parte de los casi cinco metros de los muros de hormigón que el Consejo Supremo de las Fuerzas Armadas (SCAF) de Egipto había construido en los accesos a la Plaza Tahir," Reads that they tore down security walls near Tahrir square, not the fucking pyramids. So from now on everything they tear down is just fulfilling the dumb prophecy that they must tear down the pyramids? I imagine they'll be tearing down a lot since they have an actual revolution to fight, and still none of it will look like that embarrassing American fantasy.

chill out, weener

Don't tell me to chill out! It is really, REALLY important that the Egyptians stop what they are doing and tear down the pyramids! Look at this prophecy:

"None of us will succeed unless you physically destroy the Pyramids of Giza."

NONE OF US WILL SUCCEED! This is really super important and he even wrote out step by step directions on how to get to the pyramids!

Chill out, douchebag.

"For the destruction of all power!" Here here, how about we start with whatever powers up your computer you used to write this article!

huh huh good one and plus also communists buy commodities at the store and anarchists ride the city buses huh huh huh hypocrites faaaart sob

yes, and fascists too! You know every bible thumpin' nazi has a stack of pornos twice as tall as any of ours! As a serious intelligent capitalist, I feel we are the only ideology true to itself!

"I feel we are the only ideology true to itself."
We are the only ideology true to itself.
We are only ideology itself.
We are ideology itself.

This is a good article! And that worries me Max


So, what is the deal with Mubarak's name. In the first paragraph you have it as Murabak. At first I was going to mention it for an edit (it always is better to have names right). However, google searching either spelling comes up with articles about Mubarak. More articles in foreign languages when using Murabak, more english language articles with Mubarak.

Is this a case of anglicizing Arabic similar to the Osama/Usama translation?

People just spell it wrong a lot. The anglicizing primarily affects vowels, and occasionally consonants, but never the order of consonants. The order of consonants doesn't vary in names, nor should the internal vowels.

oh, I get it. Pure materialism.

• Class struggle in Maghreb and Mashrek… Class struggle worldwide… (April 2011 in Czech, English, French, German, Italian);
• Greetings to proletarians in struggle in Syria, Egypt, Tunisia… and all over the world! (February 2012 in Czech, English, French, German, Greek, Spanish… and Arabic);
• And last but not least Again and again more Blood-Baath in Syria (August 2012 only in Czech, English, French).
Internationalist solidarity!
