Riffraff in the libertarian milieu - Argelaga

A timely warning to the libertarians of Spain from the editors of Argelaga concerning an attempt (June 2015), instigated by certain elements in the anarchist camp sympathetic to “Platformism”, to form a citizens’ political party based on civil society slogans (“the people, “society”, and “the majority” vs. “the evil ‘elite’” or “the one percent”), transmitted via the telegraphic text-message-style communications of a “postmodern”, “upbeat” and “trendy” “lexicon”, crafted for an audience composed of “the pauperized and computer-literate middle class, students and local bureaucrats”, fodder for “reformist militantism of the trade union, municipalist, NGO or para-institutional type”.

Дамье В. Забытый Интернационал. Т.1

Исследование посвящено анархо-синдикалистскому Интернационалу - организации, объединившей в своих рядах сторонников идеи всеобщего самоуправления. Его история, по словам одного из видных деятелей анархо-синдикализма, - "это пламенная история революционной организации, оставившей глубокий след в обществе. И в то же время это - полная бурь и мук история Европы в период между двумя мировыми войнами. История, объяснить и, прежде всего, понять которую можно лишь в свете жестокого столкновения между двумя противостоящими друг другу волнами - революционной, рожденной Русской революцией, и авторитарной, шедшей под знаком фашизма из Италии и затопившей в 1930-е годы всю Европу".
