Friends! A political crisis is about to happen in Belarus. There's a good chance Lukashenko's regime, which seemed to last forever, will lose control: partially or totally, temporarily or permanently… Belarusian society shows unprecedented active fury against the dictatorship. What is going to happen when the first cracks in the System will turn into its complete collapse?
Talent, selflessness, courage of thought – are the main advantages of the anarchist movement. Anarchists from Belarus have always been “a particular breed”. In Russia and Ukraine it has often been said that Belarusian comrades are distinguished by their more mature approach to the struggle – they are ready to make sacrifices, ready for repressions.
Guerilla anarchism is not a populist ideology and practice-it will never be a popular one either.
Guerilla anarchism is built on, sustained by and shielded by networks of support, not organic communities within capitalism. It will always be a minoritarian tendency even within anarchist thought, nevermind within capitalist society.
Despite this it plays an indispensable role in the formation and maintenance of the anarchist movement and the insurrectionary process of revolution. It forms the defence groups of the anarchist movement, its funding sources, a key propaganda tool and the forces of attack.
Innate to Anarchism practice is the practice of guerrilla struggle. Anarchism as an ideology and practice is one of asymmetric warfare - this means struggle that does not play the game of the oppressors such as the state or the capitalists. It seeks to undermine those forces through propaganda and action, to trigger an insurrectionary process that sweeps away the old world, for the new one built on federalism, mutual aid and solidarity.
Anarchist Guerrilla practice is taking many forms around the world, overwhelmingly armed and mobile.
