(en) Argentina, Cordoba, OAC: Yesterday marked a new anniversary of the death of Nestor Makhno - one of the most outstanding militants that the anarchist movement has given (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Nestor Makhno, a Ukrainian peasant, was formed politically and ideologically during the revolutions of 1905 and 1917, forging ties in Russian prisons with such militants as Pyotr Arshinov. ---- With his liberation and in the heat of the Revolution of 1917, he gave himself fully to revolutionary work, returning to his land to organize the workers and peasants, founding the Professional Union of Agricultural Workers and a local soviet of peasants as well as the first free commune in the region. He also serves as president of the Professional Union of Metalworkers and the Soviet of Peasants and Workers. ---- he heads one of the most important episodes in the history of the anarchist movement, the Makhnovist Revolution or the Makhnovitschina. A true social and revolutionary movement in which many of the libertarian theses were applied, radicalizing the workers and peasants below, expropriating and collectivizing lands from lords and landowners, creating soviets and revolutionary committees along the way.
The black army was the armed response of this movement to confront the tsarist whites, the European imperialist armies and the Russian Bolsheviks, who endangered the achievements and conquests of the Revolution made up entirely of armed workers and peasants.

With the defeat at the hands of the red army, makhno must go into exile, already in Paris together with other exiled militants such as Arshinov, Maksinov and Mett they founded the "group of Russian anarchists abroad", with which they edit the magazine Dielo Truda, in it they embody the lessons of the Russian Revolution and the anarchist defeat, urging the organization of anarchists in a solid organizational platform, with a programmatic base, theoretical-practical unity and a determined and disciplined militancy in the social environment.

"anarchism cannot continue to be walled in the narrow parameters of a marginal thought, to which only a few small groups subscribe, operating in isolation. Its natural influence on the mentality of the human groups in struggle is somewhat apparent. If this influence is to be be consciously assimilated, it must then equip itself with new approaches and begin here and now to enrich itself with the contributions of social practices."
