Solidarity with the administrative prisoners on hunger strike

Last week there was an escalation in the pressure against the Palestinians in chosen locations that Israel wants to transfer them from - in the south and East Jerusalem neighborhoods. After the first successful hunger strike of two Palestinian administrative detainees, the hunger strike of 1,500 administrative detainees is widescale and the demonstrations of support and solidarity hunger strikes are abundant. In addition to the weekly demonstrations promoting this theme, Ramallah and the concentration camp of Ofer are the main locations, with mounting confrontations between demonstrators and Israeli State forces. In addition to the social struggle within Israel that is gaining momentum, we had actions and solidarity demos with the African refugees. A May 1st demo with a black block will start in Tel Aviv in the early evening. [Italiano]

Occupied east Jerusalem/Al-Quds

Beit Hanina

Palestinian, Israeli and foreign activists protest against illegal Israeli Jewish settlers moving into the house of Palestinian Khaled Natshe which was taken over by force by the Jewish settlers, in the Israeli annexed Arab east Jerusalem neighborhood of Beit Hanina.
Demonstration at Friday 27/4/2012. Palestinians, more than 50 Israelis and number of internationals demonstrating together in Beit Hanina against evictions of Palestinians from their houses in the neighborhood and extremist Jewish settlers moving in which started last weeks. http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.40001358336662...46057
The demonstration was powerful, and long. The police attempts to capture a number of Palestinians who did not do anything, but failed. Eventually they settle for one Israeli detainee. She stayed a few hours in the patrol car that was prevented from leaving the area of the demonstration. Finally, after hours of demonstration full of energy the protesters decided to let the police car go and take the detainee to the police station where she was questioned and released immediately.
There were several dozen police officers, to suppress the demo. They pushed, beaten, and trampled protesters, but did not used more drastic means like tear gas or fire of live ammunition.
The neighborhood made ​​it clear this demonstration is only the first opening of the struggle to expel the occupation from Beit Hanina.

Beit Ummar

Saturday protest, 28.4.12 "Our protest was in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners on hunger strike and against the Israeli occupation colonial activities in the town. One Israeli peace activist (K.) was arrested. Our main demands were: to Free Palestinian prisoners from the Israeli jails, to stop colonial activities, to allow the farmers to cultivate their land freely, and of course number one demand was to end Israeli occupation."
"I was arrested in Beit Ummar yesterday for being in a closed military zone. The police decided to keep me for the night and take me to court on Sunday to ask for a 2 month restriction from the area. Thanks to the great work of Leah and the rest of the legal support the police were forced to reverse their decision and bring me to court the same night.
I finally got to see a judge at 1 am he released me without and restriction from the area." K.

"Call to come to Deir Istiya, Monday evening... As already mentioned in a previous mail, 9 farmers of the Salfit village Deir Istiya received an order to uproot 1400 trees in Wadi Qana by May 1st. We visited Wadi Qana last Friday and were invited to participate in a meeting this Monday evening, to lay out a plan of action.

We will be leaving Tel Aviv Monday evening at around 6. If you are interested in coming to the meeting and/or to spend the night, please contact K."
On April 25, 2012 nine farmers of Deir Istiya, Salfit were given orders to
uproot 1400 olive trees in the Wadi Qana agricultural area by May 1, 2012.
This is the largest order for uprooting trees that the farmers of Wadi Qana
have ever been given. Most of the trees were planted approximately 5 years
ago on privately owned Palestinian property. The orders, placed on
retaining terraces, rocks and fences in the vicinity of the trees, state
that if the farmers do not uproot their trees they will face punishment
which could, according to Deir Istiya mayor Nazmi Salman include large
fines and imprisonment.
On Friday, April 27, villagers and international activists will proceed
from the village of Deir Istyia to the Wadi Qana agricultural area for
Friday prayers and an educational walk through the valley. Internationals

Tel Aviv

Tonight (April 25, 2012) at 22:30 15 activists intended to get into action in Rabin Square. As we seek to leave the office of Zochrot (remember - the 1948 Nacbah) we discovered that the police are closing around the building and closes all exits (from the main path leading to the building and a courtyard that connects the buildings). Staff officers on the scene made ​​it clear that he is determined not to allow us to "violate the public order" and therefore not in and out.
Sieged near Ibn Gvirol Mane Street intersection, we were interned for almost four hours and were forbidden to go outside the building unless we agree to give the police force our materials, submit our identity documents and undergo interrogation that includes search in our personal belonging. It was made clear to the police by attorney Gaby Lasky which helped us (and a big thank you!) That they commit false imprisonment and that they have no reason to ask us to identify ourselves but they ignored her. Around 02:00 most of us were released, except three arrestees from the supporters who converged out of the sieged building and were reading the names of the demolished villages at 1948. "We work for their release" (They were supposed to be brought Thursday 20:00 before judge but released by court a bit earlier). On Sunday we will submit a complain for false imprisonment.
Silencing sailed this evening from Ibn Gvirol Mane Street intersection, towards new realms with the bitter taste of totalitarian regimes.
Israeli police blocked the exit from the event, claiming activist were planing to take part.

textPalestine-Israel - a struggle that never ends between Zionist settler colonialism and the indigenous... 15:25 Sun 20 Jul by Ilan S. 0 comments

The war on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip continues for the 13th day. Demonstrations against Israeli warmongering continue both in Israel and throughout the world. All that Israel wants in this war that it has initiated is to thwart a Palestinian unity government and curb the peace agreements it might speed up. The danger of Hamas' surrender to the Palestinian Authority in the heels of its economic crisis has resulted from the actions of the new Egyptian government, which seriously threatens the project of splitting the Palestinians, something that Israel has invested extraordinary efforts in. Only the total collapse of Hamas rule in Gaza scares Israel more than that. However, due to internal problems among the Israel political elite and public opinion, the government refrained from revealing the true nature of the war, which is to stabilize independent Hamas rule in Gaza and prevent the need for Hamas to surrender to the Palestinian Authority of the West Bank. So, instead the Israeli government has exaggerated the reports about attacks against Hamas and is hiding the real agenda - the obstruction of Palestinian unity. [Italiano]

When the European pressure on Israel to compromise with the Palestinian elite collected momentum - already diminishing exports, Israel tried to take advanced of the kidnapped three settlers youth applying "plans from the drawer" trying to ignite armed Intifada. Nearly three weeks of propaganda based on lies (as if they are searching for the already known to them to be dead three youth) was all over the media. When lastly the bodies were "found", lies were exposed, and the harassments failed to ignite Intifada. The mounted hate crimes of the Israeli extreme right and murder of a Palestinian youth of the annexed East Jerusalem ignited an extreme response there and within the Palestinian regions within the 1948 borders. Vicious harassment of US-Palestinian youth - cousin of the murdered youth which was video typed became together with the video of the kidnapped cousin became viral all over the world and ignited solidarity demos all over the world.

Many objections were raised about the participation of Israelis in the non-armed struggle in the areas of Palestine occupied in the 1967 war. Some, mostly Palestinians, regarded it as a contribution to so called "normalization". Others claimed that Israeli activists should do their struggle within the Israeli population of the 1948 borders. Many anarchists raised reservations as the Palestinian popular struggle is a kind of capitalist "national independence struggle" for the self-determination of the Palestinian capitalist elite to monopolize the option for the exploitation of the Palestinian working masses - they just ignore the fact that most Palestinians wish for a bi-national democratic whole Palestine and not for a national Palestinian State. Others just do not take upon themselves the obligation to serve as a life-saving shield, as Israeli policy officially forbids the state forces to shoot to kill when Israelis are supposed to be among the demonstrators. Indigenous people struggle against settler colonialist transfer and marginalization is NOT the same as a national Bourgeoisie for "national independence" or "national self-determination". [Italiano]

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle activists insist in the efforts to change the world* 22:02 Mon 19 May by Ilan S. 0 comments

Week after week, on weekend and in the week-days to anarchists and other activists insist of leaning our Shoulders on the wheels of history that revolve too slow and push them as much as we can. There is not much of energy in the masses and many activists lost the urge to participate, but still many of us persist and join the meager efforts of the Palestinians who resist the advancing transfer efforts of the Israeli Zionist project and its state forces. The international solidarity activists who join us bring with them the echoes of world wide expanding support and the message that our struggle contribute a lot to it. The frustrated Israeli state forces continue their murderous efforts to extinguish the popular struggle adding live ammunition from time to time like the last week at the demo in Bitunia (near the Ofer concentration camp) but retreat under mounting international pressure. [Italiano]

textPalestine-Israel, The moment of truth is nearing, but short time considerations still block it* 04:25 Wed 07 May by Ilan S. 0 comments

The mounting pressure of world imperial powers seems to cause a section of Israel capitalist elite to accept the compromise offered by the Palestinian elite. Another section still want to delay the deal either to enjoy the short term gains or to improve the deal. They think that they can delay the settlement till the November election in the US with out any risk. Mean time the creeping transfer efforts continue mainly in the C areas of the occupied west bank and the suppression of Palestinian popular rebellion. The popular struggle continue both to slow the creeping transfer and to recruit international pressure to quicken the end of occupation. The joint struggle in the south Hebron hill help the Palestinian farmers Tsumud (persistence), in he Sheik Jarakh it help to curb the transfer in the East of Jerusalem. In Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, and Ma'asara it help to freeze the murderous suppression of the popular struggle at large.

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle on the background of Israel preparation for withdrawal* 00:03 Wed 30 Apr by Ilan S. 0 comments

The Israeli Zionist-capitalist elite start to feel that the point of a showdown is nearing fast. They already realized the total backup of the US is diminishing due to the change in its global interests and diminishing of its power... but it still gambling that dragging time may increase their gains in the sphere of lands grabbing and domination on the future Palestinian state. However, the painful understanding that they will not get all that they demanded all the time since the Oslo agreement is already here. The Palestinian ruling elites in the west bank and in Gaza too are on their compromising road as the Fatah old guard and the Hamas are now contemplating sharing the spoils. The joint struggle which contribute its share to the world wide mounting pressure on Israel to compromise continue in spite of the increasing pressure of Israel to put end to it.

textPalestine-Israel, Though it seems lot of things are going to change soon - it is in a slow motion* 04:26 Wed 23 Apr by Ilan S. 0 comments

The prolonged status quo between the Israeli ruling elite and the Palestinian elite reach a climax. Changes in the balances of power within the Israeli capitalist elite is still in slow motion, but you can feel the vibrations. The joint struggle of the Palestinian grass root activists and the Israeli radicals is not expanding, but the new wave of total refusnic military service of Israeli youth - which already passed the hundred seems promising. The joint struggle in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarah, South Hebron Hills, Arkib (within Israel) and other places from time to time keep the flame in spite of the harsh repression. The involvement of Israeli Jews and to a lesser measure international activists still prevent a massive bloody massacre of the unarmed Palestinian demonstrators. [Italiano]

textPalestine-Israel The struggle and the joint struggle continue in spite of the stand still* 13:34 Mon 14 Apr by Ilan S. 0 comments

May be it is because the Arabic Spring and the wave in the developed countries raised too much the hopes for change followed by disillusions. May be it was (like the big wave in Israel that mobilized about 10% of the population) a kind of releasing pressure valve... The struggle still continue, but the number of participants diminished and the moral of those who continue is not high. The smaller flame of hope for a radical change in our tortured home land is nourished by the change in the imperial power balance, the gradual withdrawal of the US from the region and the increasing pressure for change by Europe with the B.D.S. at its front. But, the joint struggle continue, and the gradual bunt out of many of the old timer activists of the anarchists against the wall is partly replaced by the new wave of total refusnics of mandatory military service for high school graduates and the activists of the anarchist-communist Ahdut. [Italiano]

textPalestine-Israel, The joint popular struggle continues to backdrop of "talks" that change nothing 18:23 Fri 04 Apr by Ilan S. 0 comments

The joint struggle continues; even many activists have been "burned out" while waiting for short-term gains and victories. The advances in the international arena are paradoxically reducing the flame of most people in spite of the increase in suppression efforts by the anxious settlers and the Israeli authorities. The hard core of the activists continue their struggle in spite of the increased suppression, encouraged by every small success, by every tear grenade returned to the harassers, by every failure to cut a demonstration short. Bil'in, Ni'lin, Nabi Saleh, Ma'sara, the South Hebron Hills, and Sheikh Jarrah continue the weekly demonstrations in a stubborn mood of "tsumud" (persistence) - the long, long refusal to yield to the expulsion-transfer of the Zionist settler project. [Italiano]

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle continue on back ground of an immanent crash of "negotiations* 02:35 Thu 20 Mar by Ilan S. 0 comments

The political negotiations intended to prevent the involvement of international forums by the Palestinian ruling elite do not stop the joint struggle of popular movement which invigorate the B.D.S. efforts and the local non armed struggle. The increased suppression of the struggling communities and the transfer efforts in a choice location do not extinguish the flames of struggle and the persistent of the "Tsumud". Night raids in Ni'ilin, Bil'in, Nabi Saleh, and Qaddum, and arrests increase. The threats of dispersing the Friday demos with live ammunition towards the stone throwing Shabab is expressed from time to time by shots at youth legs. In Bil'in, the members of the Israeli anarcho-communist organization start to fill the gap resulted from the diminishing participation of the anarchists against the wall initiative. Our black and redNblack flags are accepted in a friendly mode. [Italiano]

The main features of the Syrian revolution are its youthful, spontaneous aspect, and the fact that it was created on the streets and is linked directly to the people. It is a revolution without centralized control, led by insurgent individuals. Consequently, no-one can claim to govern it or lead and the reason is simple: the young insurgents rose up spontaneously and there are no signs of participation by religious elements, whose ideas are extremely reactionary, or indeed by any other tendency.
