In addition to the weekly joint demonstrations and other joint actions the Anarchists Against the Wall activists participated in the social justice activities and solidarity with the African refugees lately under racial and state harassment. The peak was the Nacsa 45 demonstration in Tel Aviv where about one and a half thousand activists (mostly left to the communist party. State forces were surprisingly lenient and let us take the King George road for two hours, which leads from the city square to a park near the building of the ruling party.

Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle continue on the background of increased Israeli racism and efforts of transfer

Beit Ummar

Today Kobi and Yousef were arrested in Beit Ummar.
They were released on a 1000 shekel bail each.

Bil'in

Bil'in habibti Friday 8-6-12 On the Anniversary of the Al Naksa. In 1967 in this time of year, The West bank and Gaza strip were occupied by Israeli occupation. This occupation led to the killing of thousands of Palestinian people and Arab people, and many tens of thousands of Palestinians were forced to leave their land (transfer-immigration) to outside of Palestine. Another demo in Bil'in - The 381st one. A bit bigger than the usual ones. We were about two dozens Israelis, about two dozens internationals, and few dozens Palestinians - mostly from the village. As it is the usual routine lately we came by cars to a location in the middle of the returned lands, near the Abu Lamun reservation, and marched from there to the separation wall.
It seems the state forces changed again as they refrained very long time from harassing us - even when we entered between the fences of spools of barbed wire "protecting" the wall. For a while they just sprayed us with the Skunk water, which the wind dispersed quickly. Only when most of the people started to return to the village they showered the area with tear gas grenades.
Some of us who felt the urge for more, traveled to the demo in the not far away village Nabi Saleh.

Nabi Saleh

Three international solidarity activists were arrested during the weekly demonstration in Nabi Saleh this week. The army used anti-riot gear inside populated areas, shooting tear-gas canister and spraying "skunk" water into homes.
Dozens joined the weekly demonstration at Nabi Saleh this week, which marked 45 years to the "Naksa" – 1967 war which ended with the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza. Making its way from the center of the village towards the main road of the village, protesters were met by the "skunk", a water cannon spraying foul-smelling liquid, and a volley of tear-gas canisters. As the demonstrators were dispersing and regrouping, soldiers marched into the village and started making arrests.
Three international activists were detained on no grounds, only to be released at the end of the demonstration. The skunk truck also proceeded into the residential areas of the village, spurting the fetid liquid into homes for clearly no other reason than vengeance. A group of protesters who began making their way to the villages confiscated spring was attacked with a volley of tear-gas, fired from a launcher which shoots dozens of canisters at once. The demonstration ended with some clashes, however no serious injuries were reported.

Beit Nuba

"There will be a demonstration for 45 years of occupation in Beit Nuba this Saturday and we are invited to participate. If you can make it please let me know. K."
Demo in the displaced village of Beit Nuba to mark 45 years of Occupation this Saturday
The village of Beit Nuba was destroyed in 1967 and its residents displaced forcefully. The Wall now separates them from the remaining lands of their original village.

When: Saturday, June 9, 2012 at 15:00
Where: Beit Nuba village (near Beit Liqya, off road 443)
Register for transportation: K.
Residents of Beit Nuba, will commemorate the 45th anniversary of the Naksa -The Israeli occupation of West Bank and Gaza this Saturday. The villagers will march with their supporters - Palestinians, Israelis and internationals - towards the ruins of their village, inside the West Bank, from which they were expelled in 1967 and are still denied the right to return to.

The demonstration will also protest a recent demolition of a public building in the village by Israeli authorities, as well as five standing demolition orders that were handed out to the villagers. Currently, more than 10% of the houses in the community are currently threatened by demolition.

Background

In July 1967, during the war in which Israel occupied the West Bank, Israeli forces took over the original village of Beit Nuba. The village, together with the neighboring villages of Yalo and Aamous were depopulated and then destroyed on the orders of Yitzhak Rabin, the then Chief of Staff of the Israeli army to clear the way to an highway from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

About 250 refugees of the Beit Nuba live currently few kilometers east of their original village. The path of Israel's Separation Wall leaves the ruins of their village and much of their lands sequestered behind it.

On May 23th, large military forces raided the new Beit Nuba accompanied by a D9 bulldozer, and demolished a public building which has been built back in 1977. The soldiers have also handed five more demolition orders.

On May 25th, two days after the date of the demolition, a hundred people from the village marched towards the Wall’s gate, in protest of the recent demolitions, and in demand of being allowed to return to their original, demolished village.

Kufr Qaddom

Two hundred Palestinians, six Israelis and some internationals participated in Friday weekly demonstration, Jun. 8, 2012.
The demonstration began as usual with the march toward the forbidden road. Right at the beginning the Shabab burned tires and black cloud covered the sky and smogged the
The fresh air and hopefully the jovial atmosphere in the Kedumim settler community. In few minutes the army started with heavy tear gas shooting, skunk cannon spray, concussion grenades and if I remember correctly also A touch of rubber coated steel bullets. Lots and lots of gas. A guy who escaped from the gas fell and was injured in his hands
and required medical treatment. He was treated and bandaged in the village. And soon returned saying that he wanted to join his friends and his brother again - respect. A child was wounded by a tear gas canisters and was taken care of on the spot. Many suffered from gas inhalation.
As always Kadum shabab gave beck an appropriate fight.
The demonstration lasted about an hour and a half. And ended when the army retreated.

Nacsa day in Tel Aviv

A coordination comity of activists of the Israeli radical left organized demonstration in Tel Aviv. The anarchists against the wall participated in the preparations and in our own block in the demo but refused to sign a press release of the coalition that included fronts of the communist party, various Trotskists parties, and other initiatives.
Some of us planned a nice block during Saturday Demo. "We made some new big Banners and it will be good if we can march together and have our voice heard. Please bring you Kufia if you have one. See you there". In the pictures and video of Naksa 45 our banner says resistance, and we are chanting slogans against the occupation and Apartheid and in support of Mahmoud Sarsak in the streets of TLV: Anarchist banner and flag. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150831428877554

The non armed joint actions - mainly few Friday demos, do not cause the Israeli armed forces much load. However, the focusing of the media on these, and more so the international activist participating in them who enhance the international struggle when they return home, really worry the Israeli authorities. Their borders screening which succeed to prevent the entry of activists is not much effective. The Israeli ruling elite is not in panic yet, but lately they worry a lot. The president of Israel warn that the development of the B.D.S. must cause a real concern. The threat of the expulsion from the FIFA cause Israel to make concession to prevent the voting and even agreed to a special monitoring comity. The subject of the B.D.S. is more and more in the media and many of the speaker admit their fear from its intensifying. [Italiano]

The election which was a response to rebellion in the elite - threatening to restrict his daily newspaper - resulted in a partial defeat. He is dependant now on the support of the center-right party and the orthodox parties,and now he is trying desperately to regain control. The mounting pressure on Israel threatens to take a fast escalation. It is already expressed in the threat to expel Israel from FIFA and of intervention of the Hague Court. The French initiative in the UN security council is approaching. The escalation in transfer actions - both within Israel and the West Bank is an effort to recruit at least the support of orthodox parties and the extreme right. In spite of harsher efforts to repress the Palestinian struggle - both in occupied east Jerusalem and the popular non-armed struggle the struggle continues. The very optimistic activists already feel the approaching victory. [Italiano]

The B.D.S. which intensify the pressure not only worry the Israeli elite - it already caused a split in it. The split expressed in the initiation of law against the Netaniahu daily caused him to dismantle his coalition and call for election. The result was even worse for him. He lost the majority of the hard core right. The 61 (versus 59) coalition was achieved only with Kakhlon center-right that already blocked the main rightist moves and some of the extreme neoliberal tendency. A new power balance in the Israeli elite may result with a near future coalition with the pseudo left party Zionist List or even entirely different coalition without Netaniahu or even without the Licud party. With this back ground, transfer of Palestinians intensify - both citizens of Israel and in the occupy west bank... And the repression and struggle continue in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Qadoom, Ma'asarah, Sheikh Jarrah, South Hebron Hills and sporadicly in other places. [Italiano]

With the conviction that our main contribution is not so much in changes on the ground but in the spirit of the struggle of the participants and the fulcrum we provide to the international lever. The gradual increase in international pressure which the Israeli high court verdict is that is a criminal act for Israeli to promote causing already much of damages in the economy of occupation and concern of the Zionist-colonialist Israeli ruling Elite. We see here again how small number of activists can initiate a turn in the course of history when it is applied in the ripe cross-road. It started in a small joint camp in Masha 2003 for struggle against the separation fence, after the idea raised half a year earlier in the European People Global Action conference in Leiden - in which activists from the East of the Mediterranean region participated too. The camp initiated struggles in various villages that riped at 2005 in the Bil'in struggle... which expanded and expanded...

The frustrated Israeli state force who do not dare to prevent the weekly non armed popular demonstrations - Joined and purely of Palestinians, resort to shooting on demonstrators with frequent use of live fire by snippers. In the annexed regions of Jerusalem they no more pretend it is not an occupied area and apply there the occupation procedures - both in treatment of detaining children and houses demolition. The "hot" areas of the popular non armed struggle gradually expand but still far away from a general uprising. The international popular struggle worry the Israeli elite but the damages to the Israeli economy is still in the margins. It seems the Zionist settler colonialist elite which bribed the tycoons section of the capitalist elite with extreme neo liberal measures cannot do it any more as other sections of the capitalist elite (backers of Cakhlon) rebelled.

The merger between the Zionist leadership and the capitalist elite which started 1948 picked in the Tycoons dominance, at 20010. The "too successful" neo-liberalism was challenged by the social struggle, conflicts within the capitalist elite and threatened by international pressure yielded the diminishing power of the old order when the right lost its absolute power in the parliament depending now on the opponent of the milder Zionist right (Kachlon). It is not sure how fast the retreat in the neo-liberal trend and the defeat of the Tycoons combined with the international pressure will yield also retreat in the advance of the Zionist settler and transfer effort. Mean time the joint struggle continue in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Kadum, Ma'asarah, Southern Hebron Hills, Sheikh Jarrah, the Bedouins of the south, Dahamsh... with additional locations from time to time.

textPalestine-Israel, The joined struggle in a decisive year* 23:42 Mon 09 Mar by Ilan S. 0 comments

The minimal pressure of the imperial power on Israel to soften its pressures applied to the would be transfered Palestinians of the 1967 occupied areas have its results (more in the west bank than in the Gaza Ghetto). The about 100.000 Palestinians of the occupied territories are employed by Israelis. Most of the roadblocks were removed. The rebellion of the Palestinians in the west bank is channeled mostly through a small minority of activists in the joint and separate week end activities. People are like holding their breath to see if the culminated crisis in the international arena will yield a significant break throw. Mean time, the persistent week end struggles - though in a diminished intensity in Bil'in, Ma'asara, Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, South of Hebron Hills, Sheik Jarrah... with sporadic struggles in other locations. [Italiano]

The approaching victory in the struggle to block the advance of the Zionist settler colonialist project and even to force it to retreat a bit do not make the real good people to like the enrolling of history. The approaching defeat make the Israeli elite take desperate steps and do its atrocities in the open. The efforts to transfer the Bedouins within 1948 borders and villagers in 1967 occupied territories escalate. The diminishing support of Israel by the imperial power due to changes in the dynamics of the region, world public opinions and economic losses it cause gradually change the power balance within the Israeli capitalist elite that may be expressed in the coming elections. On the ground, the joint struggle in Bil'in, Ni'lin, Ma'sara, Nebi Saleh, Sheikh Jarrah, Qaddum, and South Of Hebron Hills, is gradually expanding to other locations even without the "shield" of Israeli activists. [Italiano]

The old world order, in which US interests in the region East of the Mediterranean let Israel - a bastion of the US - continue with its Zionist settler colonialist in the 1967 occupied Palestine, has ended. Europe has started to advance its own interests, which are not in accord with the Israeli bastion. The independent steps of Europe are enhanced by its public opinion against Israeli colonialism to which the joint struggle in the West Bank contributes a lot. It was the approach of the imminent crisis that forced the Israeli Prime minister to call for elections, to save himself from the normally-timed election when the crisis would be the main agenda. The murder of the Palestinian minister of the popular struggles has focused attention on the ferment and rising of the popular non-armed struggles of which Israel is contemplating suppression with systematic use of live ammunition. [Italiano]

Israel was built mainly by the national socialists who owned 75% of the economy in 1949. Due to dependence on the imperial powers the so-called socialist elite invested a lot in building the Zionist-capitalist elite to which it lost power in 1977. Conflicts of interest within the Zionist-capitalist elite started to change the balance between the small tycoons section that supported the Zionist wish to transfer the Palestinians out and the capitalist section that integrated in the neo-liberal globalization who wish to exploit the Palestinians and the workers of neighboring countries. The restructuring of power relations in global capitalism after the last crisis had its Israeli expression in the near-bankruptcy of the tycoon elite and the present collapse of the government coalition. The economic damage which has already resulted from the B.D.S. campaign which is enhanced by the joint struggle seems to be hastening a shift in the balance of powers.

The Kobane resistance that has passed its 45th day as of now has caused the attention of revolutionaries all over the world to turn to Rojava. As a result of the work carried out by Revolutionary Anarchist Action (DAF), anarchist comrades from many parts of the world have sent messages of solidarity to the Kobane resistance.(1) This internationalist stance without a doubt carries great importance for the people resisting in Kobane. However if we do not analyze what is happening in all its truth and if we romanticize instead, our dreams will turn to disappointment in short order.

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.
