I’ve just come back from visiting the Kate Sharpley Library in California. Things have changed from the days when I could get there on the bus and we were buying our first filing cabinet. Lots of filing cabinets now, as well as boxes like the Left Bank Books archive. It’s good to look at the non-fiction shelves, seeing ‘old friends’ and new acquisitions. ... read full story / add a comment

Almost two months have passed since the Baltic Anarchist Meeting was organised in Tallinn of Estonia 25th-27th of May, but only now I had time to write some impressions. I haven't come across any other reports yet, but I hope they would show at some point up as I missed many of the discussions. [Italiano] ... read full story / add a comment
mashriq / arabia / iraq / community struggles / news report Tuesday July 17, 2012 - 23:19 by Ilan S.
The joint struggle of Palestinian activists with Israeli and international activists was never a consensus affair. The more reactionary objected to the influence of secular partners. Extreme "nationalists" oppose the Israeli activists. The Palestinian authority was never too happy with the independent struggle. Some "militants" were against the non-armed mode of the struggle. Narrow-minded people did not have a clue about the joint struggle's contribution to international pressure on Israel to put end to the occupation or at least to lessen the level of repression. The demo against the renewal of discussions of the PA with Israeli rulers brought the PA objections to the open. ---- In Israel, the social struggle collects momentum while the split between the reformists who wish to join the parliament and those who refrain from that quagmire.

Palestine-Israel, The harassment of Israeli and Palestinians involved in the joint struggle escalate
mashriq / arabia / iraq / community struggles / news report Wednesday July 11, 2012 - 01:50 by Ilan S.
In the past, Israeli activists detained in joint struggle activities were released after the action ended or on bail late evening/night after interrogation in the police station and banned for two weeks from the specific region. Seldom activists were detained for the night and released at court the next day or banned for up to a month. In very seldom cases activists were detained for two nights, or asked by prosecution for longer time. Last Friday an Israeli comrade was detained at Nebi Saleh. Three days later, on Monday evening at about 6pm, he was released after a Jerusalem District Court judge ruled that there was no evidence to substantiate the soldiers’ allegation of assault. He was however indicted for “reckless behavior” and will face court proceedings for this charge. He also was banned from participation in actions for the following three months.

The social struggle within Israel and support for refugees under intense expulsion efforts draw activist from the joint struggle. The internal repression of Palestinians within the west bank by Palestinian Authority personal do not contribute the moral of the people. The sporadic escalation and deescalation of Israeli assaults on the Gaza Ghetto continue, and so are the efforts to transfer Palestinian farmers from the C areas coveted by the colonialist settlers project. Beit Umar, Susia, and the southern Hebron hills are the main victims. ... read full story / add a comment

Seattle City attorneys officially threw down the gauntlet with the Department of Justice last week, filing court documents which challenged the “reliability and trustworthiness” of a recent DOJ report on the Seattle Police. The DOJ report, which “finds a pattern or practice of constitutional violations regarding the use of force… as well as serious concerns about biased policing,” has been offered as evidence in an ongoing court case brought by Martin Monetti Jr. against the City of Seattle.Monetti, a Latino man, had his head stomped into the pavement after being told by then-Detective Shandy Cobane that he would “beat the [expletive] Mexican piss out of you, homie.”
This is just the latest move by Mayor Mike McGinn and the Seattle Police Department in their escalating strategy of resistance to the Department of Justice, who have repeatedly called for reform of the city’s embattled police department. ... read full story / add a comment
David Cameron plans to end housing benefit for claimants aged 16-24. The ‘proposal’ forms part of wider recommendations to begin being implemented next year as part of the new Welfare Act. Further plans being rolled out including linking regional play with regional benefits, breaking the link between benefits and inflation, and considering linking benefits to average earnings and cost of living amounting to a further attack on worker’s rights and conditions. ... read full story / add a comment

The first high pick of the third Intifada is nearly over with significant successes of the hunger strike. As counter measure the Israeli state forces increase the harassments and pressures on inhabitants of area C (69% of occupied west bank) to transfer out to area A of the Palestinian authority. In the on going joint struggles of the AAtW with the popular comities and activists, Nebi Saleh still get the most of the harassments. Quaddum and Beit Ummar, which are too locations of regular struggle which is beyond the initial joint struggles against the separation fence, get the on going pressure and punishment to prevent the expansion to the other villages and small towns. Within Israel comrades were involved with the struggle against deportation of African refugees and racial incitement against them. The summer wave of the Israeli 'Occupy' social struggle is now blooming

The waves of the hunger strike struggle of the Palestinian prisoners mostly over with victory leave the urge for more. The Israeli state forces try to prevent the expansion of the third Intifada... but not by slowing the mounting efforts to transfer Palestinian villagers from area C. The joint struggle which started with the focus on the separation fence expanded so much that the other aspects are now more prominent. The weekly confrontations in Beit Ommar, Bil'in, Hebron and its southern hills region, Ma'asara, Nabi Saleh, N'ilin, Qaduum, Sheikh Jarrakh, are the core of the struggle with shifting focusing on locations in occupied east Jerusalem and area C which are targeted lately by the escalation of transfer efforts. Within Israel, The social struggle starts slowly to accumulate momentum, with more success in the periphery towns. [Italiano] ... read full story / add a comment

Welcome to Irish Anarchist Review issue 5, produced by the Workers Solidarity Movement. In this magazine we look to explore theories, thoughts and ideas about political struggle. We set out to analyse where we are aiming for as a revolutionary movement and explore how we might get there. The purpose of ‘Irish Anarchist Review’ is to act as forum for a sharing of ideas about revolutionary struggle. Building a successful revolution demands genuine discussion, debate and sharing of ideas. We hope that the articles in here will help to stimulate discussion and provoke debate and perhaps even motivate some of our readers to respond with articles of your own. ... read full story / add a comment

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.

One of the joint struggles we are involved in is B.D.S., called for by long, long ago by the Israeli anti-authoritarian anti-capitalists and adopted over the years by other Israeli activists and Palestinian organizations. In the last few years it has collected momentum and though Madonna did not respect it, she tried to co-opt it. The media gave space to the turning down of free tickets donated by Madonna to the more radical Israeli activists, and the State forces' preventing two Palestinian activists from the Ni'ilin joint struggle to attend. In addition to the joint demos and activities in the regular locations in the occupied Palestinian regions and within Israel, comrades were involved in the intensified struggle for the survival of African refugees, victims of Israeli State repression and the extreme right incitement.

In the days of June, in Rio de Janeiro, organised anarchism in Brazil will experience its greatest contemporary historical event. The Anarchist Congress, that will bring together groups from about 10 states across the country in debates, agreements and resolutions to act with common principles and tactics on the Brazilian reality, has a very special significance. Our conviction, in a more than 10 year process, says that militant anarchism holds indispensable contributions to the struggles for anti-capitalist social change. The meeting of militant forces that embody the same concept of work in co-ordination is a fundamental step in the journey of building political organisation that doesn’t just start now.

In addition to the regular locations of joint struggles, the Anarchists Against the Wall initiative was involved with the struggle against the racist attacks on African refugees. Within Israel there were actions in solidarity with the Bedouins who are subject to creeping transfer that has lately accelerated. In Tel Aviv and Jerusalem it was mainly with the refugees and social justice. In the occupied West Bank of Palestine it was the fifth year of Al-Ma'sara, Beit Ummar for the sixth year, in Bil'in now already in the eighth year of continued struggle, in Nabi Salih already the third year, in Ni'ilin that is just completing the fourth year, in Qaddum that started this year, and the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of occupied east Jerusalem/Al-Quds already in the third year.
