La NATO, rappresentata dallo stato turco, da due giorni sta bombardando senza pietà le unità di difesa popolare curde YPG che stanno avanzando a nord di Aleppo nelle città di A’zaz e Tal Rifaat. I bombardamenti, che hanno ucciso almeno 23 civili, si sono concentrati sulla base aerea di Menagh, conquistata nel 2013 da una coalizione di “ribelli”, tra cui Al Qaeda (il Fronte Al-Nusra) e altri che poi sono confluiti nello Stato islamico. Menagh è un obiettivo strategico per i rifornimenti alla “ribellione” al servizio delle petrol-teocrazie e degli interessi di USA e UE. Ahmet Davutoglu ha detto che di questi bombardamenti è stato informato il vicepresidente USA Joe Biden, il quale anche se non approva pubblicamente l’intervento militare, non lo ha condannato né ha provveduto a frenare lo Stato turco, che non agirebbe mai senza l’assoluta certezza del sostegno USA.

The weekly Friday demonstration in Bil'in

The villagers of the Palestinian vilage of Bil'in have been struggling now for 10 years against the construction of the separation barrier and consequent expropriation of their lands. This struggle has been a non-violent one, carried out together with Jewish activists from Israel and international activists and has inspired dozens of other similar struggles in villages throughout the West Bank. Here, Israeli anarchist Ilan Shalif explains the significance of Bil'in and recounts his experiences there.

The struggle in Bil'in is only one part of the fabric of struggle of more than 120 years between the indigenous people of Palestine and the Zionist settler colonialist and transfer project. The struggle in Bil'in is also the culmination of the joint popular struggle of Palestinians and young Jewish community members who "betray" their local Jewish community, which is harnessed to the Zionist project of settlement building and transfer. As partners second in importance only to the local activists, between us we have forged an unusual alliance, one that has hardly ever been seen during the half millennium of struggle between European colonialism and the other inhabitants of the world.

REVOLUTIONARY SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLES' STRUGGLE

This text is a response to the article Rojava: An Anarcho-Syndicalist Perspective by K. B., recently published on the Ideas and Action website of the North America-based Workers Solidarity Alliance (WSA). In the article, there is an attack on the Rojava revolution in the Middle East, an event in which the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) has played a key role.

This response is not published in bad faith or with ill intentions towards the writer or their organisation but, rather, in order to clarify and share our thinking regards the question of anarchist support both for national liberation movements and what is, for us, a very important and inspiring struggle playing out in the Middle East. The aim is to have a frank, and comradely, debate that takes us all forward.
