An African anarchist-communist approach

Racism has been a curse in South Africa, and remains embedded in the society. But how scientific are racist ideas? Where do they come from? And how can we fight racism and create a truly equal and fair society? What do we as revolutionary anarchists think?

A Dialogue on the French and Québecois Contexts

Since the publication of Houria Bouteldja’s book, Les Blancs, les Juifs et nous, in spring 2016 (Paris, La Fabrique [Whites, Jews, and Us, MIT Press/Semiotext(e), 2017]), a controversy surrounding the use of the term “race” has emerged in anarchist circles in France [1]. Those who use such a notion are called “racialist” and likened to racists. This particularly affects the concept of “intersectionality” that comes from the social sciences and has been taken up by activists in order to better articulate our thoughts about different forms of oppression, such as gender, race, and class [2]. Recently, the anarchist group Regard Noir [Black Gaze] (since voluntarily dissolved) published, with the Anarchist Federation, a pamphlet titled Classe, genre, race et anarchisme [Class, Gender, Race and Anarchism], featuring translations of short texts from the The Women’s Caucus of the British Anarchist Federation which help to reflect on the concept – and the phenomenon – of “privileges.” [3]

Why White Activists Should Stop Wearing Masks at Protests

From Medium - By Nico Quintana, transgender latinx activist and law student

Since the inauguration of President Trump, more and more progressive, white activists are wearing masks at protests and engaging in black bloc tactics, which has left me asking, why? I want to know why so many white progressives are not showing their faces at protests and why they think black bloc tactics are appropriate to support the current political movements.

Many articles from different people about Rojava have expressed different views. The vast majority of them have covered the positive and bright sides of this experiment. I too have written many articles, in both Kurdish and English. In addition, I have given many interviews to Kurdish and non-Kurdish media. I have attended and addressed several meetings, both in the UK and abroad. I travelled once to Rojava and twice to Bakur (the Kurdistan part of Turkey).

The Brilliant - Episode Fifteen: Loving Nuance

From The Brilliant

This is one of the first episodes where B & A! seriously disagree. Probably there is just some sort of misunderstanding or perhaps race is something we are not capable of seeing eye to eye on. Entertaining listen though. Totally separately than this is a discussion about an article from the newest Black Seed by Gerald Vizenor.
