We present here a text we found on the Italian blog Finimondo (http://www.finimondo.org/) that our group Třídní válka / Class War / Guerre de Classe also translated in Czech. We want to emphasize here the contempt we feel not only for the exploiting capitalist class, but also for all the reformers of this world of misery. This is what emerges from this leaflet and more especially with regard to the critique of the novice politicians who scour and contain the so-called movement of “indignados” and other “Occupy” so that both of them don’t overstep the limits that reformism tries to give to them as a referential framework.

Introduction and brief critique of the text
We are bringing here a text “Spain: Anarchists and the May 15 movement—reflections and proposals” which was written by anarchists from Madrid and translated recently by Class War Group to Czech. We consider it to be a very interesting contribution to the question of revolutionary minorities’s activity inside of social movements such as is the May 15 movement. It deals with the activity within movements that are full of contradictions, confusions, false ideas, manipulators and politicians, but which nevertheless still represent some demands and pose questions whose content has, behind all clear or less clear veil of the bourgeois ideology, necessarily classist aspect—express demands to satisfy human needs or they defend them against the bourgeois attack, demands whose aspiration to be fulfilled necessarily puts the human needs in opposition to economy, i.e. interests of capital.
This text provoked a discussion in which we have obviously tried to detect strong and weak aspects of this contribution. Let’s mention in advance that we don’t intend here to reproduce the false dichotomy between anarchism and Marxism (some say communism).To follow this dichotomy in practice results in nothing but another separation inside our class, where this internal fragmentation plays into the hands of the bourgeoisie in its common interest to turn all struggles of the proletariat against capital into the fights inside the proletarian class itself.
