About the Statement of the Libertarian Workshop Alfredo López in Havana

from A las barricadas, English translation by Anarchist News

by Octavio Alberola

Due to serious health reasons in my family environment, I was unable to comment on the recent Statement of the comrades of the Alfredo López Libertarian Workshop in Havana nor to the reaction of comrade Gustavo Rodriguez. I do so today because I consider it urgent to manifest that solidarity between colleagues should not impede criticism, if it is considered to be well founded; but also that it must stem from the (libertarian/anarchic) right to have a discrepancy in a fraternal debate and of mutual respect.

An Anarchist View from Havana: Isbel Diaz Torres

from The Final Straw Radio

This week on the Final Straw, we’re sharing another audio gift from comrades. Isbel Diaz Torres is a participant in the Taller Libertario Alfredo López / ABRA in Havana, Cuba, recorded in late 2018. In this chat, Isbel talks about the ABRA which is the only openly anarchist organization in Cuba at the time, about the LGBTQ movement and abortion rights which are both facing repression due to pressure from Cuban Evangelical and Catholic churches on the Cuban government, political discourse and difference, government co-optation, neoliberalism, animal rights, repression of dissent and the erasure of anarchist history.

Statement from the Alfredo López Libertarian Workshop in Havana

from ABRA, English translation by Anarchist News

We do not accept masters over us or servants under us. We work for a society where all public affairs are resolved through the self-organization of those of us who live, work, create and love, in Cuba and on the planet. We give testimony, however, that the move to such a way of managing our lives in common can only be the product of the most profound social revolution. But being radical in our conception of socialism and human liberation does not make us strict or extremist people, nor does it oppose us to those who sincerely seek ways of dignity.
