  • Zabalaza, antes Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Federation (ZACF o ZabFed), y desde 2007 Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front, es una federación de grupos anarcocomunistas en Sudáfrica. En materia Castellana en Argentina, su nombre también se ha traducido como Frente Anarco-Comunista Zabalaza (FACZ). Zabalaza está inspirada por la Plataforma Organizacional de los Comunistas Libertarios. La federación Zabalaza consiste en: * Cruz Negra Anarquista * Colectivo Medios Bikisha * Grupo de Acción Negra * Grupo de Acción Zabalaza * Zabalaza Books (editorial) * Varias individualidades anarquistas militantes de varios "townships" a lo largo de Sudáfrica. Los miembros de Zabalaza comparten un acuerdo básico en términos de unidad teórica y estratégica, compromiso colectivo y federalismo tal como lo sugiere la Plataforma. En términos históricos la tradición plataformista comienza con el manifiesto de La Plataforma Organizacional de los Comunistas Libertarios escrito por Néstor Makhno e incluye al grupo de la CNT de Los Amigos de Durruti durante la Revolución española quienes escribieron Luego de la Revolución Fresca. En el período de post-guerra hubo quienes incluyeron como parte de la tradición documentos como el panfleto de Georges Fontenis titulado Manifiesto del Comunismo Libertario. (es)

The Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Front (ZACF, also known as ZabFront or simply as Zabalaza), formerly known as the Zabalaza Anarchist Communist Federation (ZabFed), is a platformist–especifista anarchist political organisation in South Africa, based primarily in Johannesburg. The word zabalaza means "struggle" in isiZulu and isiXhosa. Initially, as ZabFed, it was a federation of pre-existing collectives, mainly in Soweto and Johannesburg. It is now a unitary organisation based on individual applications for membership, describing itself as a "federation of individuals". Historically the majority of members have been people of colour. Initially the ZACF had sections in both South Africa and Swaziland. The two sections were split in 2007, but the Swazi group faltered in 2008. Currently the ZACF also recruits in Zimbabwe. Members have historically faced repression in both Swaziland and South Africa. The ZACF is rooted in the Organisational Platform of the General Union of Anarchists (Draft) by the Dielo Truda group, but it does not accept the document uncritically. The ZACF is also inspired by the pamphlet Towards a Fresh Revolution, written by the Friends of Durruti, a grouping of Confederación Nacional del Trabajo (CNT, or National Confederation of Labour) members, during the Spanish Revolution, as well as by Georges Fontenis' post-war pamphlet Manifesto of Libertarian Communism. More recently it has come under the influence of South American especifismo, a tendency which originated in the Federación Anarquista Uruguaya (FAU, or Uruguayan Anarchist Federation). ZACF members are expected to be committed, convinced anarchist communist militants who must be in general agreement with the platformist principles of theoretical and tactical unity, collective responsibility, and federalism. Its activities include study and theoretical development, anarchist agitation and participation in class struggle activism. As a platformist–especifista organisation, the ZACF subscribes to the idea of an "active minority". This means that the ZACF, unlike certain anarcho-syndicalist organisations, does not seek to build purely anarchist mass movements or unions; nor does it seek to turn existing social movements into anarchist-only movements. Rather, in the tradition of social insertion championed by the Federação Anarquista do Rio de Janeiro (FARJ, or Anarchist Federation of Rio de Janeiro), the ZACF works within existing movements to fight for the "leadership of anarchist ideas". This entails the implementation of anarchist principles within such movements, along with a revolutionary anarchist programme. This is because the ZACF holds that the strength of trade unions, social movements and other organisations of the working class lies in their ability to unite the greatest number of workers regardless of their political, religious or ideological affiliations. At the same time, the ZACF believes such movements can only undertake a revolutionary transformation of society when they are won to revolutionary anarchist positions. (en)
