Rosa Luxemburg!

Rosa remix
I have deep respect and admiration for Rosa Luxemburg. Not only was she a brilliant praxical (theory & practice) revolutionary , she conquered incredible challenges in her life to let her voice be heard – physical challenges, misogyny by her enemies and her supposed comrades, racism/anti-semitism. Like all of us, she was not without her contradictions, but she was also powerful, she contributed greatly to what we know about democracy and revolutionary movements, and like the sister at the Rosa Luxemburg gathering by the New York City office of Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung and by Verso Books in NYC said, her critique was a feminist one. So although Rosa did not say those words, “I am a feminist”, Luxemburg was correct, and Lenin was not, in developing and offering a critique about revolutionary organizations and how they can operate sanely and well to be inclusive of all of us.

And the film about Rosa by Margarethe Von Trotta is really well done and free on youtube –

Yo le tengo mucho respeto y admiración a Rosa Luxeburgo. Además de ser una revolucionaria del praxis (theoria y practica) brillante, ella supero metas increibles en su vida para que se escuchara su voz – barreras físicas, la misoginia de sus enemigos y sus supestos compañeros, el racismo/el anti-semitismo. Como todes de nosotres, ella tenia sus contradicciónes, pero también era poderosa, contribuyo muchísimo a nuestro entendimiento de la democracia y movimientos revolucionarios, y como la hermana en el foro de Rosa Luxemburgo organizado por la oficina neoyorquina de Rosa Luxemburgo Stiftung en la Cuidad de Nueva York y por Verso Books dijo, su critica era feminista. Aunque Rosa no dijo, “soy feminista”, ella tenia razon y Lenin no, en desarrolar y ofrecer una critica con respecto a organizaciones revolucionarias y como pueden andar sanamente y incluirnos a todes.

Y la pelicula sobre Rosa por Margarita Von Trotta es muy bien hecha y gratís en youtube –
