Anarkismo

Sinulat ni Cindy Milstein. Salin sa wikang Filipino ni Victoria Garcia. Unang nailathala ni Revolt Magazine. Read this in English on The Anarchist Library.


Sa ugat nito, ang anarkismo ay isang espiritu—na umiiyak laban sa lahat ng mga mali sa kasalukuyang lipunan, at walang alinlangang ipinapahayag ang lahat ng mga pupwedeng isaayos sa ilalim ng mga alternatibong uri ng panlipunang kaayusan. Maraming magkakaiba ngunit magkakarugtong na pagtingin sa anarkismo, pero sa madaling sabi, ito ay bibigyang kahulugan bilang ang pakikibaka tungo sa isang “malayang lipunan ng mga malayang indibiduwal.” Ang katagang ito ay maaaring masabi na napakasimple. Nakapaloob dito ang parehong pagpapahiwatig ng kritikong multi-dimensyonal at isang mapagpalawig, maaaring sensitibong, pagbubuo ng panibagong pagtingin.

What is anarchism?

Contrary to popular belief, anarchy ≠ chaos. The reason that people think it means chaos is because of its rejection of government from above (namely, by politicians and officials) in favor of a government by the people.

To Be Queer is to Love All: A Perspective on Queer Activism and Anarchism in the Philippines

Written by Malaginoo. Content and trigger warning: This text discusses physical, mental, and sexual abuse, discrimination, and murder committed against queer people.


For the first time, I’m going to speak in the first person, because contrary to the belief of religious conservatives and macho-fascists, there is no such thing as a Gay Agenda™, and the queer community isn’t a monolith. I cannot write for all queers, nor the communities I have come to know and love in my less than two decades of existence in the world. No, they have their own stories to tell, and they have their own time to tell it. I have mine. I can only write for myself, but that’s a good start, isn’t it?

Advertising Anarchy

Written by Ponkan on his personal blog, republished by request on Bandilang Itim.


Throughout history Anarchism and Anarchies have long been known to appear and explode as vibrant as it is sporadic. At its most practical, it has been long defined by bursts of activity and small, however self-professing or simply resemblant it is.

Most of this intermittent yet persistent attitude is brought by the movement’s preference for solutions-based activity over theory. If there is any, its most seminal ones do not play around its own philosophy–it is unfettered and blunt aside from some bents towards propagandistic and erudite language. Why wait, nay–prepare for the coming upheaval when you can make liberation happen yourself? Direct action!

Towards an Anarchism in the Philippine Archipelago

Written by Simoun Magsalin.


There is a necessity for a liberatory politics in the Archipelago known as the Philippines and as anarchists we think Anarchism has the framework to fill this need. The dominant forms of politics we have now are insufficient for developing a liberatory politics in the archipelago. This liberatory politics becomes a necessity because politics in the Philippines is currently an alienating affair—a politics done to people rather than people doing politics. We are also dominated by domineering structures and institutions like the market, capitalism, and the state. Against these we forward the liberatory politics of anarchism for a world beyond domination.
