We are activists of social-revolutionary group in Russia, Alliance of Revolutionary Socialists (ARS). Recently we had organized our conference, where adopted our program declaration, “Who are we (Thesis of ARS)” . It seems, it is the most consequent social-revolutionary document of such kind in ex-USSR.
Modern Russia is a country, where decadence and decay of capitalism is in the sharpest form, country of total economic degradation, political reaction and spiritual idiotism. Revolutionary proletarian traditions was destroyed by Stalinist terror, proletarian class was atomized by it. In 1990-s years between protesting proletarian and semi-proletarian elements had dominate Stalinist organizations. Today they are in situation of semi-collapse. Now different Trots are active and trying to work – in reality, to work as supporters of bureaucracy of small trade-unions. Most of so called anarchists aren’t anarchists of class struggle, they deeply sank in swamp of counter-culture, and for them the question is “how to defend animal rights in courts”…
In such situation to struggle for total social revolution, for destruction of state and capital, for revolutionary power of general assemblies of laborers – is quite difficult thing. But we try to do it.
In reality we are quite small group, and our main work is propaganda work. Recently we had publish first number of our magazine “Maximalist” with some our articles about economic crisis and proletarian struggle in ex-USSR plus translations from Canne-Meyer, Ruhle and Pannekoek.
We are glad to have contacts with revolutionary groups abroad, who are stands upon positions of revolutionary struggle of the proletarian class. If somebody in social-revolutionary milieu abroad know Russian and can translate some our works into other languages, it will be excellent. We, in our turn, can translate some works into Russian.
Our site is <a href="www.revolt.anho.org">www.revolt.anho.org</a> (almost all – in Russian). At libcom.org you can see article of one our activist “Three stages of the proletarian struggle” and short note of other our comrade Kotob - http://libcom.org/forums/news/ukrainian-factory-occupied-12022009
Last article on our site (“Requiem for a nationalization”) is about workers protest at Kherson Machine-building plant (Ukraine) and against slogan of nationalization, all Russian and Ukrainian Trots now hate us for it. If some comrade can translate it, it will be very useful.
