AFed’s magazine, ‘Organise’, which nowadays is mostly reprints of other people’s texts, appears more interested in nationalism or videogames than strikes. As we head to a summer of struggles, with strikes by RMT, UCU, GMB, IWGB, and many others, and the possibility of mass cuts to Civil Service paving the way for further struggles ahead, the latest issue of Organise says nothing about workers’ struggles in Britain, and instead opts for a lot of pro-West/pro-war Ukrainian-bourgeois bullshit. Combined with their PKK support, they’ve obviously abandoned anti-nationalism/proletarian-internationalism.
And they have announced they want to have an 'anarchist' black bloc at the 18/06 TUC demo, alongside some new, unknown group called 'Hackney Anarchists' ('Hackney' presumably referring to the place in London).
Is this decision to black bloc just for the sake of looking radical? Because I see no tactical value of doing so, amidst an assembly of thousands of mostly ordinary workers.
When I look at AFed, I just see an organisation in terminal decline, in both qualitative and quantitative terms.
