Solidaritet

Første nummer af VS’s salgsblad (1979-1991), ugeavisen med det traditionsrige navn Solidaritet (i 1976-77 udgives tre prøvenumre). Bladet startede som VS’s uddelingsavis (1969-1985). I 1995 beslutter VS at udgive Solidaritet som et mere teoretisk tidsskrift (fra nr.2, maj 1999 med undertitlen: venstresocialistisk tidskrift for analyse og debat). I april 2014 lukkes Solidaritet (18. årgang, nr. 1, januar 1996 – 36. årgang, nr. 1, februar 2014). Nyt tidsskrift opstarter i 2015 med titlen: Solidaritet: uafhængigt socialistisk magasin (nr. 1, marts 2015 – nr. 14, april 2019). 16. marts 2019 lanceres det nye netmedie Solidaritet.

Nicaragua: 40 år med den sandinistiske revolution (Solidaritet.dk, Fredag d. 19. juli markerer 40-årsdagen for den sandinistiske revolution i Nicaragua. Vibeke Syppli gør status over landets udvikling i perioden.”

Ægte demokrati i Nicaragua kræver forandring (Solidaritet.dk, I anledning af 40-året for den sandinistiske revolution i Nicaragua, kræver Enhedslistens Nicaragua-gruppe et opgør med den udemokratiske udvikling, som landet under Daniel Ortegas ledelse er gennemgået de seneste år.”

Daggry og mørke i Nicaragua. Af Valentina Chavez og Leif Mikkelsen (Socialistisk Information, 13. juli 2019). “I denne uge er det 40 år siden sandinisterne væltede Somoza og indledte revolutionen i Nicaragua. Revolutionen blev en inspiration for en hel generation af socialister.” Også online på Solidaritet.dk.

Fodslæb på venstrefløjen (Solidaritet.dk, 16. maj 2019). “Vibeke Syppli Enrums Signatur handler om venstreorienterede bevægelser, der begynder at marchere i den forkerte retning. Hun retter blikket mod Nicaragua, ‘der blot er ét eksempel ud af mange’.”

Nicaragua – nok engang på USA’s dagsorden. Af Troels Hummelgren og Julie Wetterslev (Konfront.dk, 18. april 2019). “For et år siden udbrød store demonstrationer mod den sandinistiske regering i Nicaragua … Og som sædvanligt har den politiske konflikt ikke alene udspring inden for landets grænser, da der også geopolitiske interesser på spil.”

Nicaragua: Hvor er oprøret på vej hen? Af Dan La Botz (Socialistisk Information, 1. juli 2018). “Den aktuelle protestbevægelse i Nicaragua bærer tydeligt kendetegn af en folkelig opstand.” Se også Tomas Andino Mencia: Nicaragua: En kritisk venstrefløjsanalyse (ibid., 1. juli 2018)

Sandinisme eller “Danielisme”? Af Hans-Peter Renk (Socialistisk Information, 4. marts 2017). “I dag kontrolleres FSLN af Daniel Ortega (livsvarig præsidentkandidat) og hans klakører.”

Valg i Nicaragua: Ortega-klanens alliance med højrefløjen og kirken. Af Alfred Lang (Autonom Infoservice, 30. oktober 2016). “Nu kritiseres Ortega for at have kopieret Somozas korrupte adfærd. Det er en stående anklage, som fremføres af mange af Ortegas tidl. kampfæller fra sandinstbevægelsen.”

Fortidens synder, 4: Jyllands-Posten, Ronald Reagan og ‘sandinist-diktaturet’. Af Ulrik Dahlin (Information, 6. september 2008). “Når Jyllands-Posten skriver om det venstreorienterede sandiniststyre i Nicaragua, er tonen hård og direkte, hvorimod avisen mere er afdæmpet og udglattende, når det gælder Reagans Iran-Contra-skandale.”

Fortieth anniversary of the Nicaraguan Revolution: twenty-ninth anniversary of the counter-revolution in power. By Dan La Botz (New Politics,

Nicaragua 1979-2019. By Eric Touissaint and Nathan Legrand (Against the Current, Issue 201, July-August 2019). “The Left has many more reasons to denounce the policies of the regime. To understand this, we must go back to 1979. That year saw the victory of an authentic revolution in Nicaragua that combined a popular uprising, self-organization of cities and neighborhoods in rebellion…”

Sandinismo is in the streets. By Dianne Feeley (Against the Current, Issue 201, July-August 2019). “Those of us who have been supporters of the Sandinista Revolution need to see that the Ortega-Murillo regime has stained that revolution. Our solidarity, therefore, has two tasks: to stay the hand of Washington, and to build networks of solidarity with the civic movement.”

The Nicaraguan crisis and the Manicheanism of the US Left. By William I. Robinson (Verso, Blog, 19 August 2018). “Washington’s primary interest in Nicaragua is not getting rid of Ortega but in preserving the interests of transnational capital in the country and the hegemony of capital over any post-Ortega political project.”

An authentic revolution in 1979. By Éric Toussaint (International Viewpoint, Issue 523, August 2018). “On 9 July 1979, an authentic popular revolution triumphed over the dictatorial dynasty of the Somoza regime” + part 2: The evolution of the regime of President Daniel Ortega since 2007. By Éric Toussaint (ibid.).

Unexpected uprising: The crisis of democracy in Nicaragua. By Courtney Desiree Morris (NACLA, May 14, 2018). “How did recent protests over social security cuts in Nicaragua turn into a nationwide grassroots mobilization against President Daniel Ortega?” På dansk: Ortega sat på prøve (Kritisk Debat, 15. juni 2018).

Nicaragua’s popular rebellion stopped — for now. By Dan La Botz (New Politics, Blog, August 1, 2018). “What is the state of the popular rebellion in Nicaragua? What brought about the rebellion? Who is involved in the rebellion? Who are the most important national and international actors? And what is the nature of the Left’s debate over Nicaragua?”

Nicaragua: A view from the Left. By Jeffrey L. Gould (NACLA, July 25, 2018). “Making sense of Daniel Ortega’s slow betrayal of the Nicaraguan revolution.”

Nicaragua in pain. By Claudio Katz (International Viewpoint, Issue 522, July 2018). “Memories of the Sandinista Revolution are still alive for the generation that lived through it. To remain silent would be an affront to those who took part in that memorable insurrection against Somoza.”

Nicaragua: the epilogue. By Mike Gonzalez (RS21: Revolutionary Socialism in the 21st Century, 13 May 2018). “The violent suppression of anti-austerity protests in Nicaragua marks another nadir in the long decline of Sandinismo.”

Are we on the eve of another Nicaraguan Revolution?: Nicaraguan government kills 24 – students, farmers call for national strikes. By Dan La Botz (New Politics, Blog, April 24, 2018). “How did a political party and a government born in a popular revolution in 1979 go so wrong?” See also Dan La Botz: Nicaragua: Where is the rebellion going? (ibid., June 6, 2018).

Daniel Ortega, Nicaragua’s Nov. 6 Election, and the betrayal of a revolution (New Politics, Blog, October 17, 2016). “Dan La Botz, author of the new book What Went Wrong? The Nicaraguan Revolution: A Marxist Analysis (Brill, 2016/Haymarket Books, 2018, 400 p.),  asks here how the Nicaraguan revolution was betrayed and what ideas and decisions of the Sandinistas themselves were responsible for the betrayal.” See review of Dan La Botz’ book by Mike Gonzalez: The wheel has come full circle (Against the Current, Issue 190, September-October 2017) + by Todd Chretien: How the Nicaraguan Revolution was lost (International Socialist Review, Issue 110, Fall 2018)

Nicaragua’s authoritarian turn is not a product of leftist politics. By Jennifer Goett and Courtney Desiree Morris (NACLA: Reporting on the Americas, 16 September 2016). “Political repression in the country has its roots in U.S. intervention.”

Nicaragua’s compromised revolution. By Jonah Walters (SocialistWorker.org, July 25, 2016). “Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega once led a vibrant radical movement, but he and the Sandinistas are compromised today.”

Ortega’s betrayal. By Jonah Walters (Jacobin: Reason in Revolt, April 12, 2016). “Today’s Sandinista leaders are a far cry from the revolutionaries that once inspired the international left.”

Nicaragua: Lessons of a country that did not finish its revolution, Part One. By Claudio Villas (In Defence of Marxism, 17 January 2008) + Part 2 (18 January 2008). Se også kritik fra Louis Proyect: A sectarian version of the lessons of Nicaragua (January 18, 2008)

Nicaragua: the return of the Sandinistas (Socialism Today, Issue 106, December 2006 – January 2007). “Kevin Thompson assesses whether the result represents another shift to the left in Latin America.”

Nicaragua: From Sandinismo to ‘Danielismo’. By Mónica Baltodano (International Socialist Review, Issue 50, November–December 2006). “The article details the degeneration, under Daniel Ortega’s leadership, of the FSLN since right-wing candidate Violeta Chamorro ousted it in the 1990 election.”

Nicaraguan election: Ortega’s victory and the dead-end of Sandinismo. By Rafael Azul and Patrick Martin (World Socialist Web Site, 30 November 2006). “The FSLN has moved steadily to the right during the 16 years since it gave up the presidency.”

Ortega wins Nicaraguan elections. By Paul Hampton (Solidarity, 3/102, 16 November 2006). “Daniel Ortega, the Sandinista National Liberation Front (FSLN) leader was re-elected president last week. But for all the flag waving, it’s clear that this is hardly a victory for the Nicaraguan working class.”

No more heroes: Nicaragua 1996. By Mike Gonzalez (International Socialism, Issue 74, March 1997). “Daniel Ortega lost a presidential election for the second time in October 1996 … The gulf between the high rhetoric of the revolutionary leaders and the reality those fine words obscured has become a yawning abyss.”

Den sandinistiska revolutionen (pdf). Av Henri Weber (Bokförlaget Röda Rummet, 1983, 112 sider; online på Marxistarkiv.se). Innehåll: Bakgrunden – Den revolutionära krisen – Kampen om makten – Övergången till socialismen – Sandinisternas ekonomiska politik – Den nya regimen: Sandinismen och demokratin – Framtidsutsikter.

The Nicaraguan Revolution: classes, masses and the Sandinista state. By Mike Gonzalez (International Socialism, No.17, Autumn 1982, p.39–90). “The hegemony of the FSLN in this new Nicaragua was undisputed. The revolution in a narrow sense – the armed overthrow of the state and the abolition of its armed force by popular insurrection – had taken place. The revolution in a broad sense, however – the assumption of power over the whole of society by the working class – faced a series of limitations which derived from the peculiar character of Nicaragua’s historical development.” Dansk udgave: Revolution i Nicaragua: massebevægelsen, klassekampen og den sandinistiske stat (VS-fraktionen Faglig Fællesliste, 1983, 28 s.)

One Dimensional Man at 50. By Stephen Eric Bronner (Logos: A Journal of Modern Society and Culture, Vol.14, No.1, Winter 2015). “For all practical purposes, ODM introduced critical theory to the United States.”

Refusing Whitfield and rethinking Marcuse: 50 years after One Dimensional Man and other things. By Arnold Farr (Logos: A Journal of Modern Society and Culture, Vol.14, No.1, Winter 2015). “Whitfield’s article should be refused not because it is anti-Marcuse, but instead, because almost every paragraph gets it wrong.”

Refusing Marcuse: 50 years after One-Dimensional Man. By Stephen Whitfield (Dissent, Fall 2014). “In the decades following the New Left’s collapse, has the stature of any intellectual fallen more dramatically than that of Herbert Marcuse?”

Democracy, social change, and one-dimensionality: reviving Marcuse. By Arnold L. Farr (Logos: A Journal of Modern Society and Culture, Vol.5, No.3, Fall 2006). “In this essay I want to examine the relevance of Marcuse’s voice in the 21th century by examining the issues raised in the three recently published volumes of Marcuse’s unpublished works.”

Remembering Herbert Marcuse. By Doug Ireland (ZNet, July 20, 2005). “Marcuse was a major influence on my own thinking, and so much of what he wrote is enormously pertinent to the world in which we find ourselves today.”

Goodbye Comrade M. By David Widgery (Socialist Review, No.14, September 1979). “Marcuse is known by some marxists solely as a man who thought the working class were finished as an agent of social change and most liberals as the brains behind the student revolt. He was neither.”

Herbert Marcuse, 1898–1979. By Martin Thomas (Workers Action, 1979). “Marcuse did not give answers. But his ideas gained some currency because he spoke more directly than others to the feelings and frustrations of the radical students.”

Critique of Marcuse: One dimensional man in class society. By Paul Mattick (Merlin Press, 1972, 110 p.). “Not only is the working class written off here as an agent of historical change but so is its bourgeois opponent.” På dansk: ‘Kritik af Marcuse: Det en-dimensionale menneske i klassessamfundet’. I Paul Mattick: Kapitalistisk og proletarisk arbejderbevægelse (Bibliotek Rhodos, 1975, s.164-241).

Herbert Marcuse and Marxism. By Robert Langston (International Socialist Review, Vol.29, No.6, November-December 1968). “His proposition that the working class has become such a conservative element – not just temporarily and under specific conjunc-tural conditions but permanently and as a consequence of structural changes in capitalist society – is not the result of any new theoretical discovery.”

Natural science and human theory: A critique of Herbert Marcuse. By Peter Sedgwick (Socialist Register, 1966, p.163-192). “For Marcuse’s portrait of contemporary science, despite his pointed collation of scraps from different investigators and theorists, is misleading in gross and in detail.”

Resistance versus emancipation: Foucault, Marcuse, Marx, and the present moment. By Kevin Anderson (Logos: A Journal of Modern Society and Culture, Vol.12, No.1, 2013). “In the discussion that follows, however, I would like to concentrate on a philosophical orientation that influences contemporary radical movements, centered on the all-too-common preoccupation with notions of ‘resistance’.”

Den græskfødte marxistiske sociolog Nicos Poulantzas dør i Paris (fødes 21. september 1936 i Athen). I 1970’erne var Poulantzas, sammen med Louis Althusser, en ledende repræsentant for strukturalistisk marxisme og blev senere eurokommunist og var også inspirator for Ernesto Laclau & Chantal Mouffes “postmarxisme”. Han er mest kendt for sine teoretiske arbejder om staten, men har også bidraget til marxistiske analyser af fascisme, klasser, og de sydeuropæiske diktaturer i 1970’erne.

Nicos Poulantzas: State, class and the transition to socialism. By Doug Enaa Greene (Links: International Journal of Socialist Renewal, August 5, 2015). “… it is worth looking at Poulantzas’ work in three areas: the state, class and the transition to socialism.”

The state, power and the democratic road to socialism – the ideas of Nicos Poulantzas. By Mark Winter (RS21: Revolutionary Socialism in the 21st Century, June 27, 2015). “Nicos Poulantzas is frequently cited as one of the strongest influences on the new Syriza government in Greece.”

The Nicos Poulantzas I knew (Versobooks.com, Blog, 5 March 2015). Interview with Michael Löwy, who was for seven years Nicos Poulantzas assistant at the Université de Paris 8-Vincennes.

Poulantzas and Eurocommunism. By Simon Hardy (Marxisttheory.org). “Poluantzas was used by neo-reformist political currents in Europe to justify their positions, he himself had a much more nuanced position.” Chapter 31 in Simon Hardy: Destruction of Meaning (2013; chapters in right column on the page)

Nicos Poulantzas and the capitalist state (International Socialist Group, August 16, 2012; online at Internet Archive WayBackMachine) + Part 2: Poulantzas and Gramsci: state and strategy (September 26, 2012). “Chris Walsh argues that his theory of the capitalist state is essential for any serious attempt to understand this problematic issue in the Marxist tradition.”

Marxism without class struggle? By Ellen Meiksins Wood (Socialist Register, 1983, p.239-271). “The case of Nicos Poulantzas best exemplifies the new union of Marxist theory with Eurocommunist practice.”

Interview with Nicos Poulantzas (pdf) (Marxism Today, July 1979, p.194-201). The interview was conducted by Stuart Hall and Alan Hunt.

‘A ‘New’ Reformism?: A critique of the political theory of Nicos Poulantzas. By Colin Barker (International Socialism, Issue 4, Spring 1979, p.88-108). “Poulantzas is not putting forward a ”˜new’ strategy, but an old, tried and tested, fully guaranteed formula – for working-class defeat.”

Marxism, sociology and Poulantzas’s theory of the state (pdf). By Simon Clarke (Capital and Class, Issue 2, 1977, p.1-31). “… despite the Marxist rhetoric, Poulantzas is unable to get beyond a structural-functionalist theory.”

Mors dag? Den katolske nonne og ordensstifter Moder Teresa (født 26. august 1910, Skopje i Makadonien, død 5. september 1997, Kolkata /Calcutta, Indien) får Nobels fredspris for at undlade helbredelse af sygdomme hos Calcuttas fattige, men lindring ved bøn, et særligt fænomen i den katolske overtro. Hun har udtalt at den største trussel mod freden er abort!

Den tidligere tyske venstrefløjs- og studenterleder Rudi Dutschke dør i Århus. (Født 7. marts 1940 i Schönefeld, forstad til  Berlin, fhv. DDR).

Se:

For 50 år siden: Attentatet på 68-oprøreren Rudi Dutschke (Autonom Infoservice, 10. april 2018) + Rudi Dutschke & 68-bevægelsen (17. april 2018). “11. april 1968 blev Rudi Dutschke skudt ned på åben gade af en højreekstremist. Rudi Dutschke overlevede, men døde 11 år senere i Århus, hvor han levede i eksil.”

Forkerte ord om Rudi Dutschke. Af Hosea Dutschke (Berlingske.dk, 24. marts 2010). “Bent Blüdnikow bruger en tendentiøs bog skrevet af Hans Kundani og en endnu mere tendentiøs boganmeldelse til at anklage Rudi Dutschke for at ville føre en voldelig kamp til den bitre slutning. Magen til vrøvl skal man lede længe efter.”

Why Germany’s 1968 movement has not failed (DW, 11 April 2018). “Fifty years ago, the leader of Germany’s student movement Rudi Dutschke was wounded in an assasination attempt. His widow Gretchen tells DW why she feels positive about the social changes that emerged from the protests.”

Rudi Dutschke and the German student movement in 1968 (Socialist Worker, Issue 2099, 29 April 2008). “The events of 1968 had a major impact across the world. German activist Volkhard Mosler looks at the movement in West Germany and the politics of its leader Rudi Dutschke.”
