Anarchism

Anarchism - often wrongly seen as a violent ideology - for me is an important aspect of my nonviolence. Nonviolence, if it includes the struggle against structural violence, can be seen as synonym with anarchism.
This section is a collection of some articles, talks, etc... - which look at different aspects of anarchism.

Socialism for the 21st century?

From 23 to 29 January the "policentric" World Social Forum (WSF) was held in Caracas in Venezuela, the country of president Hugo Chavez's "Bolivarian Revolution". No surprise then that the WSF received organisational and financial support from Venezuelan state institutions -- almost all ministries and the Metropolitan police, plus the nationalised state oil company PDVSA -- and that Chavez addressed the forum, and used it for one of his usual anti-imperialist speeches.
However, not everything is bright in the Bolivarian Revolution -- especially when you come from an antimilitarist background -- and the small but beautiful Alternative Social Forum, organised by Venezuelan Libertarians and anarchists -- and which took place in parallel to the state-sponsored event -- provided space for a more critical discussion of present day Venezuela.
