Who are South Wales Anarchists?

South Wales Anarchists are a network of autonomous collectives who are against all forms of exploitation and bigotry. We engage in direct action against capitalism and government, spread information, and build resistance to create a world based on justice and freedom.

Government and capitalism is chaos, pitting person against person, encouraging domination & exploitation to preserve inequality & privilege. Anarchism is order, delivering individual liberty & social equality through a system of voluntary cooperation without political, economic or social hierarchies.

Government & capitalism are not only undesirable, but also unnecessary. As anarchists we operate without hierarchy, co-operating on a basis of mutual aid & solidarity.

The ruling class control and dominate all economic & political systems, through government & capitalism they use violence, and poverty to amass wealth and coerce everyone else into obedience.

Our enemy is the ruling class, embodied in institutions like the G8, WTO, NATOstates & corporations. We aim to confront their activities & defend personal freedoms.

Parliaments cannot be reformed because representative systems are inherently undemocratic. Voting is not an expression of power, but an admission of powerlessness, since it just reaffirms the government’s supposed legitimacy.

Whenever people resist, practice solidarity & organise  without leaders, anarchism lives. We aim to strengthen these libertarian tendencies & help them however we can.

 

Pwy ydy Anarchwyr De Cymru?

Mae Anarchwyr De Cymru yn rhwydwaith o grwpiau hunan-lywodraethol sydd yn erbyn pob mathau o ecsploetio a rhagfarn. Rydyn ni’n cymryd rhan mewn gweithredu uniongyrchol yn erbyn cyfalafiaeth a llywodraeth, rhannu gwybodaeth, ac yn adeiladu gwrthwynebiad i greu byd sy’n seiliedig ar gyfiawnder a heddiwch.

Mae llywodraeth a chyfalaf yn anhrefn, yn gosod pobol yn erbyn pawb arall, yn annog domineiddio ac ecsploetio er mwyn cynnal anghyfiawnder a braint. Mae Anarchiaeth yn drefn, yn rhoi rhyddid unigol a chyfiawnder trwy system o gydweithio gwirfoddol heb hierarchaeth gymdeithasol neu economaidd.

Mae llywodraeth a chyfalaf yn annymunol ond hefyd yn ddi-angen. Fel anarchwyr rydan ni’n gweithredu heb hierarchaeth, yn cyd-weithio er cynorthwyo a chefnogi ein gilydd.

Mae’r dosbarth rheoli yn rhedeg ac yn domineddio pob system economaidd a gwleidyddol, trwy lywodraeth a chyfalafiaeth maen nhw’n defnyddio trais a thlodi i hel cyfoeth a gorfodi pawb arall i ddilyn eu gorchmynion.

Mae ein gelyn yw’r dosbarth rheoli, sydd wedi’u ffurfio sefydlid fel y G8, WTO, NATO, stadau a chorfforaethau. Rydan ni’n anelu i herio eu gweithredoedd ac amddiffyn rhyddid personol.

Dydy hi ddim yn bosibl i ddiwygio seneddau am fod systemau cynrychiadol yn annemocrataidd wth eu natur. Dydy pleidleisio ddim yn fynegiant o rym, ond yn gyfaddefiad o fod yn heb-rym, gan ei fod yn cadarnhau dilysrwydd llywodraeth.

Pryd bynnag mae pobol yn brwydro, dangos cefnogaeth a threfnu heb arweinwyr, mae anarchiaeth yn fyw. Rydan ni’n anelu at gryfhau’r brwydrwyr dros ryddid ac i’w helpu sut bynnag rydan ni’n gallu.
