Murray Bookchin: anarchist heretic who Inspired Spreading Revolution in Middle East

 

Posted by Julius Gavroche  from autonomies.org/ shared with thanks        The ongoing uprisings and revolution in Rojava and parts of Turkey are largely modelled on the ‘municipal anarchist’ blueprint of Murray Bookchin, whose works had been neglected and often rejected, even by anarchists as being a ‘sellout’ or ‘anti worker’ etc.

When the majority Kurdish movement, influenced by jailed leader Ocalan, finally rejected Marxism and Stalinism it adapted Bookchin’s community, ecological and anti state organisational ideas.


In this series dedicated to anarcho-syndicalism, autonomies shares Murray Bookchin’s critical reflections on this tradition within anarchism, in the excellent essay, “The Ghost of Anarcho-Syndicalism”.  Whatever reservations we have regarding the direction of Bookchin’s anarchism towards a radically democratic municipalism, his emphasis on the communalist traditions of anarchism is of great importance, not only in reading the history of the anarchist movement, but also for critically engaging with the more recent “occupy movements” and the “anarchist” response to them. …


The Ghost of Anarcho-Syndicalism

by Murray Bookchin (1992)

One of the most persistent of human frailties is the tendency of individuals and groups to fall back, in times of a terribly fragmented reality, onto obsolete, even archaic ideologies for a sense of continuity and security.

Today we find this not only on the right, where people are evoking the ghosts of Nazism and deadly forms of an embattled nationalism, but also on the “left” (whatever that word may mean anymore), where many people evoke ghosts of their own, be they the Neolithic goddess cults that many feminist and ecological sects celebrate or the generally anti-civilizational ambiance that exists among young middle-class people throughout the English-speaking world.

Fighting back against Israel’s incursions has become second nature for residents of the West Bank village.

by 

Ramallah, occupied West Bank – When Israeli military jeeps approached the village of Budrus last month, every resident was notified within minutes.

Through the speakers of the village’s mosque, a warning was issued: Israeli forces had entered the area and were preparing to demolish a house.

Men, women and children rushed towards the site of the impending demolition. The village’s women were the first on the scene. Continue reading Palestinian women lead resistance in Budrus

Turkey blackmails Trump to help Destroy Democratic Rojava and Hold it as a Turkish Jihadi ”Safe Zone”

erdogans-planThe racist dictator, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is trying every means to blackmail and bribe the US into creating the Trump requested ”safe zone” in Syria by destroying the only progressive multi ethnic, multi religion, non sexist area in the whole of the Middle East, .. Rojava.

Blackmail.. by threats to leave Nato, to join the Russia/Iran/China axis, to expose the US creation and financing of ISIS.. etc, and   Bribery.. by promising to conclude the huge new arms purchases, by perhaps blocking the Russian South Stream gas pipeline, etc.

Will Trump betray the only progressive future for Syria? ..Syrian-Kurdish women carry the coffins of female fighters in Syria's northeastern city of Qamishli on July 21, 2016 during the funeral of sixteen fighters killed battling the Islamic State (IS) group in Manbij. 150 SDF volunteers died liberating the town, including six from the International Brigade.(William Savage, from the US was killed rescuing civilians). Now Turkey is pressurizing Trump to betray the SDF, destroy the democratic revolution, and hand Manbij to Turkish controlled jihadi FSA mercenaries.

Now Turkey is pressurizing Trump to betray the SDF, destroy the democratic revolution, and hand Manbij to Turkish controlled jihadi FSA mercenaries.

The Plan is to effectively annexe the north of Syria as a ‘safe zone’ run by his own paid jihadi proxies, the FSA. Russia seems now to reluctantly go along with this, and excludes the SDF and Kurds from all negotiations.

Now the ruling Turks only need to get Trump on board.. so that their 5000 tanks can roll, the Rojava revolution can be destroyed, women can again be slaves, and a new 40 years war with Syria can begin.
