May Day and the Ongoing Class Struggle in Greece

From Love and Rage Media by Anarchist Federation (Greece)

The covid-19 pandemic is the first drop of the new most severe storm that is about to hit workers and the entire social base (in fact its consequences are perceived by now, they will only gradually become more and more noticeable for all of us). It is, however, an external factor that has acted in an accelerating way in the direction of further deregulation of the functioning of the capitalist system, thus demonstrating its anti-social class nature, which consists of reproducing the capital for the enrichment and well-being of the parasitic class of capitalists, that is, the class that misappropriates the entire socially generated wealth by violence and coercion. The current health crisis seems to be acting defiantly in terms of the resurgence of the structural crisis that is vibrating the foundations of capitalism, which is once again confronted with its own internal contradictions, the contrast of overproduction with underconsumption, the limits for investing in accumulated capital and the ever-fragile bubbles of the financial system.

France: Burning Equipment and Reflections Against Those Who Make Use of It

[This text from Indymedia Nantes deals with two attacks near Saint-Étienne, a small city near Lyon. The first targeted BTP Eurovia and the second the Delmonico quarry. Links with pictures and mainstream press articles below.

[Although I don't agree that workers are as responsible for the harm their work causes as the bosses and owners, or that all work is as disgusting as being a prison guard, this text still feels like a worthwhile contribution to a conversation about the limitations of a class-struggle centric analysis. Because this text is right on that if those with access to the means of production won't destroy them, the rest of us are going to have to.]

Surviving Zimbabwe: An anarchist critique

This article positions itself not only outside of the state, but against the state, under the guidance of anarchism as a theory. In it, I hope to give a critical analysis of Zimbabwe and its current state, arguing against simple analysis and going beyond individual politics. Rather, with the use of an anarchist lens, this article will carefully articulate the real underlying problem in Zimbabwe: it is a society governed by a class system, under the control of a predatory state that cannot survive a day without the endless exploitation of its people.
