A call to anarchists on the occasion of the war in Ukraine
TODAY THE LORDS OF THE WORLD ARE AGAIN SENDING TWO NATIONS TO THE CARNAGE OF THE WAR, AND TOMORROW PERHAPS THE ENTIRE HUMANITY. THE ARTICLES IN THE FRENCH WEEKLY NEWSPAPER “EXPRESS” ARE SYMPTOMATIC:
ONE STATES THAT THE FRENCH FASCIST RIGHT (AND NOT ONLY IT) ADMIRES AND WORSHIPS PUTIN, WHILE THE OTHER REPORTS THAT FORMER FRENCH MILITARY OFFICERS, POLICEMAN AND OTHER SIMILAR „SAVIORS“ OF MARKET DEMOCRACY ARE ENTERING UKRAINE AS VOLUNTEERS.
OUR PRINCIPLE ANARCHISTS POSITION ON THIS WAR CAN ONLY BE THE ONE EXPRESSED BY BAKUNIN ON THE FRANCO-PRUSSIAN WAR …
TRANSLATED INTO CONTEMPORARY LANGUAGE, HIS STATEMENT CAN BE CONVEYED AS FOLLOWS:
ON BOTH SIDES OF THE FRONT LINES, BROTHERS FROM THE „LOWER“ CLASSES ARE FIGHTING AND DYING FOR THE INTERESTS OF THEIR „OWN“ RULERS AND OLIGARCHS. THE REAL ENEMY IS THEM, INSIDE EACH OF THE WARRING STATES. IN THIS BLOODSHED AND DESTRUCTION, WE ARE FOR REVOLUTIONARY DEFEATISM, FOR TURNING THE WAR INTO A CIVIL ONE AND IT INTO A SOCIAL REVOLUTION.
UNFORTUNATELY, THIS TRUTH IS DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND BY PEOPLE WHO ARE SYSTEMATICALLY MISLED BY THE MEDIA, PAID PREACHERS AND „SCIENTIFIC“ DEFENDERS OF ALL CIRCLES OF CAPITALIST HELL AND ITS STATEHOOD. AND UNFORTUNATELY, IN ORDER FOR THE HUMANITY TO REALIZE THE TRUTH AND TURN THIS WAR INTO A REVOLUTION, IT SEEMS THAT THE WAR WILL HAVE TO LAST EVEN LONGER … AND PROBABLY TURN INTO THE THIRD WORLD WAR.
DO NOT REPEAT THE OLD KROPOTKIN’S MISTAKE DURING THE FIRST WORLD WAR! IT IS NOT OUR JOB TO CHOOSE THE „LESSER EVIL“. NO TEARS NO SENTIMENTALITY! HERE IN THE JUNGLE THE STRONGER BEASTS EAT THE WEAKER ONES, THIS IS THEIR LAW! CAPITALISM IS A JUNGLE. IN THIS JUNGLE, DUE TO THE UNEVEN DEVELOPMENT OF VARIOUS BANDITS, EMPIRES AND SATELLITES, TODAY'S STRONG ARE TOMORROW'S WEAK AND VICE VERSA.
THERE ARE HUNDREDS OF EXAMPLES THROUGHOUT THE HISTORY, THE MOST RECENT BEING CHINA - TOMORROW'S CANDIDATE FOR DOMINANCE OVER THE PLANET. BUT SELF-DEVOURING AND EATING EACH OTHER IN THE PRIVATE AND PUBLIC SECTORS OF CAPITALIST WORLD WILL CONTINUE UNTIL WE ERADICATE THE JUNGLE.
IN THE ARMY OR IN THE REAR, BE WORKERS OF THE SOCIAL REVOLUTION! WITH WORDS AND LEAD!
SUCH ACTIVITY IS DANGEROUS AND DEADLY. ADVOCATING IT REQUIRES SACRIFICE, BUT IT IS THE ONLY PATH FOR THE HUMAN RACE TO FREEDOM, EQUALITY AND BROTHERHOOD, OR IN OTHER WORDS, ANARCHY, COMMUNISM AND INTERNATIONALISM. ALL OTHER PATHS LEAD TO THE PERPETUATION OF WAGE SLAVERY, BLATANT SOCIAL INEQUALITY AND FRATRICIDAL SELF-DESTRUCTION.
THAT IS WHY, BROTHERS, TO ILEGAL REVOLUTIONARY WORK - IN WORDS AND DEEDS!
for the Federation of Anarchists of Bulgaria (FAB), Georgi Konstantinov
The author GEORGIY KONSTANTINOV was born in 1933 in Bulgaria. A precocious and highly politicized mathematician, he organized an attack on the large statue of Stalin in the central park of the country's capital on March 3, 1953. Those responsible were quickly arrested. But two days after the destruction of his statue in Bulgaria, Stalin dies and de-Stalinization appears. This is why there was no death penalty. Sentenced to 20 years in prison, Guéorgui Konstantinov benefited from an amnesty at the end of 1962, after 10 years of imprisonment. He then worked as a computer scientist. He succeeded in crossing the Yugoslav border clandestinely in 1973. He arrived in France as an anarchist political exile and returned to Bulgaria in 1991, after having been again pardoned from a conviction [from the regime of real socialism] for his fight against the dictatorship. and his flight abroad. In 2007 his candidacy for the Records Commission [responsible for examining the cases of victims of the regime of real “socialism”] was rejected because the police declared that Georgy Konstantinov had terrorist activities in Bulgaria. In other words, the attack on the statue of Stalin in 1953… during the regime of real socialism is considered as a criminal record 54 years later, in a regime allegedly based on bourgeois democracy!
