class within a classes society

20 Jul

Disclaimer this is about a dream, a fucked up surreal dream probably influenced by the fact that i still havnt finished my factum, the resurgence of right wing fucks, and the fact that i still dont know how to run the computer at the radio station, as well as a amazing interview i did yesterday i cant get charged for what i dream, here goes.

You know, we can never have a legal meeting around julians case without a case of whiskey said my friend, i would preffer rum, good cause as an ex brigadista, we are going to cuba to see some of your old friends and sort this all out? how are we going to do that i ask? your friend from vancouver has organized another work brigade cool istate next thing i know im in Cuba and we are the encampament full of mosquito nets etc.

My friend Liber whom i have not seen in years is like we have no rum, so i go to the tourist store and grab three bottles of havana club. We sit at a table and my yugoslavfriend, two anti imperialists, the tour organizor and Stalin join us, not the old Stalin but Koba, the robin hood , train robber, only working class member of theBolshevik party is there. my friend Liber states you know our critisism of the old soviet system was that party members had special priveledges and could get stuff that others cant, now with the new economy in Cuba, those gusanos with U$ currancy can get stuff like Havana club and us party members must wait in line, fighting over what little resourse we have.

We pour ourselves a drink, koba is like pour yourself another, im like do i look like Krushcev  to you to be ordered around to dance like a bear for your amusement? we start laughing, i pour stiff drinks for all of us, so what are the facts of the case states my friend from Toronto ABC? Miller is a dick and is persecuting me for politicalreasons. Thats not a very good arguement she states, the second part is good but you will get nowhere y calling miller a dick, point taken I state….in the background we here Ciarian Murphy for god and ulster, and im like we are in cuba what does this song have to do with anything and a voice rings out in the air…..its your fault julian you still have not learned how to use mega seg and must rely only on youtube and the songs that come up as suggestions, well we are trying to have a meeting i state can you please put on megaseg, i promise i will try to learn to do it when i get back to the studio, no the voice replys, well if we are to listen to ciarian murphy lets at least our on some anti screw songs or sings about the PSNI etc., the voice replys youtube will make whatever suggestions it wants, ok i actually love cirian murphy butits wierd all of us sitting here in Cuba listening to Irish music, wheres you anticolonialist analysis my one friend says,

What are you all doing here anyways, my yugoslav friend says if you would have read Foucault you would no that linear time is an illusion, fuck if we are going to talk about foucault and shit pour me another drink, i will have you dancing like a bear eventually said koba, we start laughing.

The problem with you north american activists is you fail to see the big picture, my anti colonialist friend says what do you expect, North america is a settler society built on stolen land and slave labour, i jump in we can build a socialist federation of nations in this territory with only 20 million people, shut up your drunk im told,

seriously my friend continues, until an anlysis is pur forth unifying all forms of oppression based on the notion of the hereditary rights of the original nations of this territory things will always stay the same.

koba says i tried to tell that to the CPUSA years ago, and when the time came broaderism was put forth because segments ofthe working class refused to give up there priveledge.

What about the priveledge in the USSR i asked, how could you let it go to shit? Have you not read my book economic problems in the Soviet union, these questions were addressed.

The tour guide said you killed many people, most of them good communists, Koba starts laughing, you know why I was elected to the CC because I was Georgian and they needed a token colonized person to deal with the national question, the tour guide interrupts, didnt you liquidate most of the leadership of Georgia? he addresses my anti colonialist friend, in KKKanada, an imperialist nation built on your land, where every day you are reminded that you are colonized by the buildings, the anthem the rewriting of history are there not those in your nation that are being payed to facilitate this? Are there not those who are put there as leaders whose pockets are full and you starve, do they have a right to this leadership? No she says, they arenot our leaders, niether where the Georgian mensheviks, If anything destroyed the Soviet Union it was the national question which created a class within a classless society, Russia was a colonizing power, and when we took over this issue was never fully resolved, the nations that chose to suceed did so because there leadership crushed the true intellectuals and were used to attack what we were trying to build,by the time of the fascist war, these unsettlled questions of land, nation and self dtermination used to infla,e and insite the genocide that happenned.

You sound like Rosa luxemburg on Marxism vs Leninism, stop derailing the coversation,yes once i admired her, very much and alot of what she said has deeply influenced me,had she not been killed and had the first world rose up with us the story would havebeen diffrent, very diffrent…….at this point he started to age…..in Spain no onecame to the aid of the Republic except young volunteers with nothing but old weaponsand a love for freedom, then came Britains betrayal of Checkoslovakia, the facistmachinery came all the way outside the gates of moscow, Where you still held thecelebration of the glorious October Revolution with the enemy litterally at the gaterisking your life. I lost more them my life, I lost my son, for something that is nomore.

If the west would have rose up i staed, they did not instead they chose facism, theychose the glory of there “nation” above the glory of humany, if there is anything foryou to learn in an Imperialist nation it is that above all you must chose class aboveimperialist illusions, you must reject facism.

At this time the radio is balring aout the growth of the grass roots movement of

facism and attacks, my friend looks at me who i did not see at the table earlier, she

looks at me and says stay here in Cuba, have a few more drinks,there are other people

who can fight. my anti colonialist friend who has been silent till now states ‘if i

learned anything tonight it is that we have an obligation to fight facism, and deal

with the historic issues of colonization by taking responsabilty, lets go…….i wake

up in a cold sweat…….what a fucked up dream….still my path is clear

Event With Simon Bolivar and Hugo Chavez

20 Jul

Join us to celebrate the legacy and memory of the Libertador Simon Bolivar and Comandante Hugo Chavez.

Date: Wednesday July 24, 2013
Time: 6:00 PM
Location: At the statue of ‘Libertador Simon Bolivar’ Trinity Bellwoods Park Place North-West corner of the park at Dundas.
1053 Dundas St. W (Shaw St east Ossington),ON M5H 2N2

– On July 24 we will mobilize and perform different activities in each of our countries to demonstrate once again that Nuestramerica is standing and moving as Jose Marti said: towards the second and final independence!

– Also we will have a global tweeting/tweetazo in support of the Bolivarian Revolution and President Nicolas Maduro

Social Movements towards ALBA – Release
(Approximate translation)

On July 24 we celebrate Simon Bolivar and Hugo Chavez’s birthday and legacy. Social Movements will mobilize throughout Nuestramérica in order to support the Revolutionary process in Venezuela which is based on the emancipatory ideas of Simon Bolivar.
Lead by Comandante Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan change process started in 1998 and is a reference for all the peoples of Nuestamerica and the world who struggle and dream of a different world.

ALBA, Petrocaribe, UNASUR and CELAC, all represent the efforts aimed towards building another America, more united and based on it’s own interests and not on the interest of imperialism. This wouldn’t be possible without the development and consolidation of the Bolivarian Revolution, and of course, the heroic Cuban Revolution, especially during the hard years of neoliberal hegemony.

Nuestramerica has gained strength from Venezuelan XXI Century Socialism and other paradigms of rupture with the capitalist system being build by ALBA. For this, on July 24th Social Movements will show our support for the Bolivarian Revolution and its current leader, President Nicolas Maduro.

Further, we want to express our deepest solidarity with the process of change in Venezuela, and in countries such as Bolivia, Ecuador and Nicaragua which are resisting imperialist attacks, especially in recent months.

We reaffirm our unequivocal support for the President and leader of the Bolivarian Revolution Nicolas Maduro as well as President Evo Morales in response to recent events that took place in Europe.
This infamous hijacking of President Morales is another example of the provocations and dirty operations of the U.S. Government (and it’s european servants) that wants to do everything possible to stop the processes of change in our continent and cease the Peoples to be protagonists of their own destinies.

VIVA SIMON BOLIVAR, VIVA CHAVEZ, VIVAN LOS PUEBLOS LIBRES Y REBELDES DEL MUNDO!

Organized by: Consulate of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in Toronto.
Endorsed by: Hugo Chavez Peoples Defense Front

In Support of KOALA’s action tommorrow!!!

19 Jul

A revolutionary age is an age of action, our is an age of advertisement and publicity. Nothing every happenneds but there is publicity everywhere- Soren Kierekegaard

Tommorrow KOALA, a political group that fights for total animal liberation will be present at the ribfest which will be held in Victoria Park. Ribfest is an excuse for the big producers of factory farming to sell overpriced beer and factory farmed food that most people cant afford. There action is to provide information and alternatives to this.

While i myself am a meat eater i support there action on the basis that all have a right to be political and take a stand in defense of there beliefs. in the present age of consumerism, revisionism and consiliation, it is refreshing to see people stick to there principles and take action based on there principles despite the fact that these principles may be unpopular.

KOALA has rejected the notion of consiliation on the basis of betrayal of there beliefs and for this i applaud them and support them. By taking this action tommorrow they are rejecting the notion of watering down ones politics to be cool or to be part of the “mainstream” and instead are blasing there own path ased on there notion of what is right as oppossed to what is popular.

I ask people to support this action tommorrow and defend there right to be political!!!!

The Price We have to Pay

17 Jul

This blog is dedicated to my comrade who has a good job, and we fucken bicckker and gossip at each other and argue, but at least has not sold out despite political and person diffrence

Revisionism is re writing history and altering events, and the political philosophies of those involved in the event. Revisionism is not something done accidental but rather is something done on purpose to attack the collective memory of a people thereby creating a tabla rasa, clean slate in which one can re impose there own interpretation and political philosophys and by doing so altering the outlook of the people involved.

This has been done on nations such as the indigenous ones whose lands we now occupy, political movements such as the international communist movement at the 20th congress whose aims had nothing to do with wether Stalin was good or bad, but everything to do with pushing the line of peaceful co existance and a rejections of armed strugglles.

This type of revisionism takes place not only in movemnts and nations but also in citys, townships and neighbourhoods and its aims are the same to remove the peoples collective memory of strugglle and replace it with the ideology of pacification.

Today people look at the city as a neutral arrbetrator and give examples of the accomodation between food not bombs and the city ignoring that the reason that this happenned is because people have fought for it, sometimes physically, same can be said about the right to protest on city property and many other liberties that the city now gives us.

Quitte a it of the affordale housing in this city now was not given out of the goodness of there heart but rather by dirrect actions like taking over the mayors front lawn and defending that with sticks forcing them to come to the table and sit.

in short the process of political defense has always been through confrontation in defense of basic rights that we have by virtue of being human, yet today this history is eing re written and in the process the “new model ” of dialouge and discussion is being put forward eg. we give up the one thing that we have the power to disrupt, mobalize and resist and in turn we are at the mercy of the beloved state that will give us everything we want because they are so good and so nice, they even have a new model of policing force that will give you candy while they spy on you and beat you.

it is not for nothing that the non violence festival and other such projects are getting major grants from the city and that community organizations that promote pacification, while avoiding the discussion of why are we in the situation in the first place are getting funding and grants while those of us pushing for change on the street are getting labelled as hostage takers, intimidators, traumatiser and the like even though our tactics that we use today are nothing compared to the direct confrontation prior to 2006.

Nor is it conicdental that this comes at a time that communitties with a history of resistance are being targgeetted on mass for gentrifiction and discussion, or that days that major protests like tent city are being organized those inside who use to be the hardest anarchists are now trying to bribe people away with events like come have a hamurger for the homeless type bullshit. (ironically this failed in the sense that when we would hand out our food at tent city, that is when people would come in droves and one of the reasons we disbanded tent city was because it became to hard to feed that many people every day out of our own pockets)

The problem with revisionism is that people do remember, especially those directly affected, and although kkkanada has a short memory as long as those people remember there will always be a fighting force, outnumber, slandered criminalized but never giving a shit, cause we living in it (to quote onyx), and despite what the media and others say things havnt gotten better they have gotten worst, sure crack is no longer a prolem, why would it be when meth and heroine are so cheap, sure theres not that many panhandlers downtown , after all thats what happenneds when they get chased away by cops, sure the low income housing isnt that bad anymore, ut most people cant even afford that.

Those of us that are still fighting are doing so because we remember and see no other alternative, and if they choose to slander attack and criminalize us, i guess thats the price we have to pay.

ABC Magazine Launch kicked ass!!!!!

17 Jul

Despite police telling people we were collecting signitures to support RIRA killers (actually we were collecting letters for Micheal Campbell who is in jail in lithunainia for a MI5 set up), and other such nonsense people gathered to participate in the 4Strugglle Magazine Launch. The event started with an introduction read y myself and was followwed by a brilliant msg from the Int. Secratary of the 32CSM read by another comrade(the msg is on my blog for more info on the 32’s please check http://www.32csminternational.blogspot.com)

Sara From ABC Toronto then spoke about there work, the magazine and took general questions on prison support and a letter was read about the ELF activist Eric Mccaid doing 19 years on a bullshit set up conspiracy charge.

This was followed by a brilliant letter from Walter Bond talking about class gender and race on the inside and the creation of the open air prison on the outside through the intesification of class divides and criminalization of those marginalized by society.

The event ended with discussion on the need to support prisoners here and abroad and intensify our struggles for those locked up.

We collected over twenty letters demanding the repatriaion of Micheal Campbell and will collect more. these will be hand delivered to the Lithuanian consulate in Toronto.
