Oops, this post was by mistake. I was using the preview to test a Perlman´s text I am preparing to publish in the library. I inadvertently clicked save instead of preview.

Hi. I'm working on an article which I'd like to post to libcom, if you're interested? It's about the how the anti-cuts movement is picking up again, arguing that anarchists need to get involved.

I'll send it to libcom.org [at] gmail.com too...

I recently took an interest in what's happening in Rojava, Northern Syria, and I've written a 2.5k word article on its governmental structure from the top to the bottom.

I would like to submit it here because, as far as I've seen, there hasn't been an up-to-date account of this kind. I know it's a little long, but this is a relatively obscure and difficult topic. So I think it would be beneficial that others learn from a broad summary of official documents and first-hand accounts, rather than having to start from scratch. I am sure there are weaknesses, but I am confident in its quality; there are sources included of course.

Thank you in advance.

Hi, I have a wordpress blog (https://syndicalistcommunizing3.wordpress.com/) and I'd like to also put it on libcom to reach as many people as possible with what I am saying. So I'd like a libcom blog to post articles from my wordpress blog on.

Hi, I would like to post a library pieces, mainly in Dutch/Belgian French but occasionally in English too.
Focus on social anarchism in its many forms, anarchist classics, etc.

I was active with the (now defunct www.anarchyisorder.org project), now with www.vrijebond.org and www.anarchief.org.

(I would still like to contribute to a decentralised setup of local publishers of texts that appear online as I wanted to do at the time with anarchyisorder.org, so if there's an initiative in this sense I'm willing to participate!)

That sounds great, you now have posting permissions.

Anarchyisorder.org has gone off-line so not really sure what you mean in terms of an "initiative in this sense"?

I would like to publish an article (originally in Portuguese) we wrote in response to a critique of the text Private property, scarcity and democracy. But as my English is very poor, I do not know if there are many mistakes and even if it is readable for native English speakers. If you evaluate that what is dealt with in the article is good, we very much appreciate it if someone wants to to revise. I posted the poorly translated article in the forum: https://libcom.org/forums/theory/against-metaphysics-scarcity-practical-copiousness-14022016

DYSTOPIAN WORK ENVIRONMENT IS TOXIC AND UNHEALTHY

The following may be done in other workplaces, but was blatantly the case at my local. Manager Mr. W. has union member(s) he selects covertly, report back to him on work details of custodial workers, to see if the work is being done to his expectation. This is direct violation as outlined in the collective agreement: "No member shall wrong another member...etc" Incidently, this is an oath repeated with each swearing in of any new member. I know it verbatum.
Furthermore, the 'spy' union worker, wanting to please the manager and thereby discredit himself to all other members, instead of refusing to do the manager's biding, continues this practice repeatedly, eventually creating dissention and distrust within the rank and file of the local.
If management needed people to inspect the work of the employees, managment should send a person within management. I suppose no one wanted this unsavory position. People were scared of losing their jobs, so they shut up and did nothing.
Out of this violation of managment/employee work ethics, the 'spy' everyone knew was 'screwing' them would next go out of his way to find insignificant imperfections in other members work and on occasion "set" the worker up by planting items in order to "trap" the worker, and thereby thwart his ability to do this job. The work place, needless to say became intolerable.
Our own union rep. then had the stupid audacity to say to our members gathered at a closed union meeting "you people are being f***ed". Nothing was reallyever done.
Only when Mr. W. was let go (for reasons I was never privy to) did this practice lessen, but never completely disappeared from the work place. Should employees be subjected to 'Gestapo' like treatment in a dystopian work environment?

I'd like to submit content published by the Communist League of Tampa, a left communist organization. Would that be ok?

I am about to add Worldwide Intifada #1 to the library once my secretary has finished preparing it. I would like to link it to the Aufheben article, Behind the 21st century intifada, which makes reference to it. However, I do not know how. Can someone administrate this?

Hi, long cut and pastes are not allowed in the forums, so that post has been unpublished. If you want to post a whole article, please click submit content, then library, and put the article in there. You can then post a link to the article in the comments. Thanks

if you need access to the unpublished post let me know and I can send it to you separately

Hi,

Having found usefull news about the Bursa Renault strikes in Turkey, I could write an article for a Dutch audience. Now that I have a translation in English I would like to put it on a blog.

In the future I hope to blog more in English, mainly translations from the Dutch blog "Arbeidersstemmen" on workers struggles from a council communist perspective.

Thanks!

Does both sound great. You guys both now have posting permissions to post to news/library/history

Fredo that's great if you're interested in blogging. If you post an article to news/library etc we can review it in terms of setting up a blog, or if you prefer you could e-mail it to us at libcom.org@gmail.com

I noticed Steven's request to help out with posting issues of International Council Correspondence here. He mentions that there is an off-site page with high-quality scans that would be nice to import. So I went to that page and downloaded, joined, and properly named every single issue of ICC/New Essays/Living Marxism. I'd be glad to upload them myself (or host them so somebody else can DL and upload them).

that would be fantastic! You now have posting permissions

if anything are over 16 MB they will need compressing or splitting in two before uploading to libcom. You can do that using these simple online tools: https://libcom.org/library/online-article-tools

another user has started doing ICC, so if you could maybe do New Essays/Living Marxism first that would be amazing!
