Hello. I would like to post a book into the history section about the 1984-5 UK Miners' Strike, written by Henri Simon.
It is called "To the bitter end": grève des mineurs en Grande-Bretagne, mars 1984-mars 1985.
It is in French.
I have already posted content on libcom before. I am not sure if I need to ask for permission to submit more content.
Regards, Rhomboid.

dear friends,

our publication `Reflections on Marx's Critique of Political Economy' is already on your site formatted by Collective Action Notes. But it does not have the diagrams.

We want to send our version which is in a more reader friendly format with diagrams to replace
the existing one on your site.

we can send it as an attachment. how should we proceed?

love,

sher singh

great stuff!

The easiest way is just to you to edit the article which is on our site already, and add your improved version. Then an editor will approve the change.

Alternately, e-mail it to us: libcom.org at Gmail

I am working on a series of articles on Leninism, a critique from a sociological angle and I would like to post them on libcom. They are largely in the tradition of Castoriadis. Some of them may be reposts but many will be new. If you want to set me up with a blog I could post them all there, but just basic posting rights is also fine. I also do some writing about the US labor movement which I might want to post as well.

Here is an example of some things I have written:

Sounds great, Scott, for now I have set you up with standard access, pending internal discussion of a blog (which we can always retrospectively create anyway). Look forward to it!

hi! my name is Juan Otero, i´ve recently published a poetry book. i worked in a plastic factory en La Plata, Buenos Aires province, Argentina, and my poetry relates to my experience in the factory.
I read today about Xu Lizhi, it quite shook me, i must say and thought of making my book public for proletarians who wander the page. Is that in any way possible? I have it in PDF format. it`s in Spanish, i haven´t translated it (yet) into english because of tricky expressions in my mother tongue.

interesting org.

hope we can make sth out of this.
Juan

Good day,

I have been blogging on politics for some time and have been actively working towards seeing some of my pieces published. I write on current events, politics, culture and literature. My first submission would be an examination of the climate that surrounds events such as in Ferguson, MO.

Thank you,

Rory

Hello.

I'm currently writing about the Autonomous Students Network and I'd like to put the following text into the library for reference :

The NUS - Outside it, Against it!

Produced by activists in the London Autonomous Student's Network, (in 2009)

The NUS - Whats the big deal?

Put simply, the National Union of Students (NUS) is designed to control, pacify and compromise the student movement. It is a way of disempowering students trying to fight together for radical social change. Due to the partisan nature of the NUS, the efforts and energies of campaigning students have been usurped by those who seek to gain control - instead of organising amongst ourselves for the battles we need to win, we have been organised into campaigns for various contesting political factions.

But don't we get something from this? These people are there to represent us, right?

More often than not, wrong. The union’s hierarchical structures divide and alienate us, thereby stopping us from being an effective force for change. The democratic centralist structure of the NUS means that, within it, we spend more time trying to make something "policy" than actually getting out there and doing it. As for elections, those who win elections are granted a position of authority over the student body and set apart from their comrades. Those who lose continue to have no voice other than to select who they would like to win in the future.

So what about these new Governance Review Proposals, then?

The democratic processes that swept (ahem!) the NUS elites to power are under attack - and, naturally, those at the top of the NUS unwaveringly support these reforms that secure their position. [INFORMATION ON THE REFORMS] Whilst this may allow the careerist right-wingers of the union to considerably improve their CV, it illustrates the extent to which the union is controlled by those who do not see in it's role the facilitation of a militant collective student movement. Although the radical left are fighting to save the union from these reforms, they - and the union itself - will be unable to offer us anything in the means of organising for real struggle relevant to our positions as students and, increasingly, as workers. Petitions, campaigns and facebook groups are all well and good, but we can achieve so much more than this in our colleges and workplaces - and unfortunately, the existance of the NUS stands fundamentally against this. For example, Education Not For Sale, a left-wing faction, has argued for NUS to resume it's commitment to free education and grants for all, funded by taxation of the rich. The NUS will not even pay lip-service to this idea - while the power and organisation lies in the conference halls and offices of the union it will not be based on our needs and we will have no power in deciding our own course of action.

Whats the alternative?

To most of us students, the union is irrelevant beyond getting twatted at the SU Bar. Its officers, policies & governance are not irrelevant because we are apathetic or unable to appreciate what they are doing 'for' us. It is because the union does not seek relevance to our lives - as we have shown, it is merely another channel with which our militancy is regulated and stifled. Our struggles, if they are to be meaningful and successful, must be based on our actual experiences and directed entirely by ourselves. Getting people talking about these things may seem like a long shot, but you're already doing it. These are the issues we complain about to each other over a cup of tea in the morning...and over that cup of tea is where we can plan to take action over it! The things that are actually happening in our lives are not irrelevant and can never be irrelevant. However, if we are to choose to do this we will be most successful if we agree how we are to do it. Setting up non-heirarchical groups with completley open decision-making processes has enabled many activists to avoid the trappings of concentrated power. Autonomy of both collective and individuals working within that collective also means that coercion and control by any opportunist political group can be avoided. A strong focus on anti-capitalism and class consciousness helps to inform us of the significance of our actions (and the responses!) And, finally, emphasis on Direct Action means no more wasting of energy on begging officials and politicians to recognise the 'legitimacy' of our plight. No more fucking about - Let's get back to our homes, our colleges and our workplaces and let's get organised!

Would this be possible? Thanks

Hi!
I wish you could publish the article, which can be found in Contra info about antiausterity/antinationalism demonstration in Helsinki, Finland 6.12. There's not so much info about anything which is happening in Finland, so now when somebody takes effort to write in english, I would like it to spread.

A couple of quick fixes still pending and just wanted to touch base.
Edited the 2nd section
(it was appearing bolded and needed a backslash before the 'H3]' code after the word 'Rage')
Also added a brief introduction, and cleaned up the unnecessary code from the quote.
my best! ...and thanks for all you do with this website smile
