#Oxford Anti-Fascists August 3: #London is Anti-fascist! No Pasaran!

A couple of days ago we received a submission of a press release from Stand Up Against Racism about the demo in London on August 3. What we didn’t know at the moment we published it, is that this organisation is affiliated with the SWP. (For more info on the SWP, see tweet in the article.) Today we republish a report that was originally published by Oxford Anti-Fascists about the demo in London. We deleted the Stand Up to Racism/SWP article as we will not support the SWP and affiliated organizations.

Towards An Anarchist Theory of Power

The following piece by Brazilian anarchist Felipe Corrêa reviews contemporary discussions of power from an anarchist perspective and their contributions to a broader theory of power for utilization in building analysis and strategy. To avoid confusion the article title has been changed to refer to an “anarchist theory of power” but we have preserved the articles use of the phrase “libertarian theory of political power” – as outside the U.S. the term “libertarian” has always historically been associated with anarchism

Emma Goldman: The Political Superstition

One thing that Donald Trump is daily proving is that lying and cheating remain, as always, the key to political success, something that Emma Goldman noted in her 1910 essay, “Anarchism: What It Really Stands For,” the keynote essay in her classic collection of writings, Anarchism and Other Essays. June 27th marks the 150th anniversary of Emma’s birth. How appropriate then to honour her legacy with this excerpt from “Anarchism,” in which she wrote: “One has but to bear in mind the process of politics to realize that its path of good intentions is full of pitfalls: wire-pulling, intriguing, flattering, lying, cheating; in fact, chicanery of every description, whereby the political aspirant can achieve success.” I included selections from Emma Goldman in Volumes One and Two of Anarchism: A Documentary History of Libertarian Ideas.
