The talk that I’m going to present today is based on a research project that I carried out with my colleague Vladislav Kruchinsky in South Africa in 2011-2013. The aim of our research was to analyse and explore the methods and practices of self-organisation from below that existed in the crucial 1980s period of the anti-apartheid struggle.

Emma Goldman’s Disillusionment with Marxism-Leninism, Not the Russian Revolution

In the chapter on the Russian Revolution in Volume One of Anarchism: A Documentary History of Libertarian IdeasI included excerpts from the Afterword to Emma Goldman’s My Further Disillusionment with Russia (originally published in 1924)But as Emma Goldman noted in a handwritten inscription to the book, what she was disillusioned with was the Bolsheviks (today known as “Marxist-Leninists”), who had strangled the Revolution, not with the Russian Revolution, which had begun with such great promise.

Christmas Behind Barbed Wire – Cars Of Hope Supports Refugees on #Lesvos

On December 17th Cars of Hope activists from Wuppertal (Germany) and surrounding cities will head off to Greece to support refugees. Some of the Enough is Enough team will join them. The central work will take place on Lesvos. Part of the group will stay until mid-January 2018. Misery is even harder during the cold season, several people suffered a painful death due to extreme temperatures last year. And the supply situation remains more than poorly: refugees staying in Moria Camp are served food only once a day. With a capacity of 2000 people, Moria Camp is currently facing the challenge of supplying up to 5000. Other refugees live in one of two additional camps or are completely on their own.
