“Come here, listen to this”, Ali slowly leafed through the pages of the local newspaper, “look, you see this small paragraph? This is an account from a fighter in the villages.” I asked him if he could translate. “Today we lost several fighters but we killed three Pakistani soldiers and shot down their helicopter”. I asked him whether he had visited the fighters in the Bolan Pass. “Yes, I’ve been there in my role as a government official but also as a Baloch, I negotiated with them on the release of a hostage, but I respect their fight”... read full story / add a comment

What is the Kurdistan Anarchist Forum and who is behind it?
The Kurdistan Anarchist Forum is an internet forum for discussions, debate and analysis among Libertarians & Anarchists on topical subjects, matters and questions against capitalism. It is a place to consider and criticise past experiences & methods of the Socialist movement that have failed, in an attempt to find alternatives. It is an open door for any libertarian’s voice, it is a voice of those who believe in Freedom, equality and social justice. In short, the Kurdistan Anarchist Forum (KAF) is a “bridge to reach and to get closer to all libertarian individuals and groups” .

At the moment, the Middle East (taken broadly, that is, the area from North Africa to Pakistan) is the part of the world experiencing the greatest political instability and undergoing the most rapid change. At the center of the turmoil is Syria, now in its third year of civil war with no sign of any resolution in sight. Given the centrality of Syria to global politics, it is essential that anarchists understand what is going on there and develop a critical attitude toward the events that are unfolding. Unfortunately, we are not experts on the history and current dynamics of Syria and of the Middle East as a whole. The following theses are therefore presented with humility. We would greatly appreciate input from others, particularly those with greater background in the area, especially anarchists living in the region, in the development of our position. read full story / add a comment

There is no such thing as “Kurdish Anarchism”, no more than there is such a thing as Russian, Spanish or French Anarchism. However, what there can be is a free association of Anarchists people originating from the same region, like Kurdistan, and seeking to militate for their ideals among the population they originate from. That is what KAF is: a Federation of Anarchists who happen to be Kurds and militate for Anarchism among Kurds as well as humankind as a whole. [Kurdî] [کوردی ] read full story / add a comment

Avec le démantèlement de l’Union soviétique, de multiples petits États déclarèrent leur indépendance. La Géorgie, pays du Caucase de 4,5M d’habitant-e-s situé à la limite entre l’Europe et l’Asie, réinstaura son indépendance en 1991 et vit aujourd’hui des relations diplomatiques avec la Russie très tendues depuis la guerre en Ossétie du sud et en Abkhazie en 2008. Des militant-e-s anarchistes ont créé une section de la Confédération Révolutionnaire des Anarcho-syndicalistes de N.I. Makhno (RKAS) en 2010 dans la capitale de la Géorgie, Tbilissi. Le secrétaire local de la section a accepté de répondre à l’entretien ci-dessous. read full story / add a comment

Questo non avverrà ad opera dei Talebani (cosa che, dovesse accadere, creerebbe tuttavia i suoi problemi), ma col ritiro dell'appoggio alla guerra da parte delle classi lavoratrici dei paesi occupanti e con la diffusione di una aperta opposizione alla guerra.

Il 13 marzo 2008, il parlamento del Canada votò il prolungamento della sua “missione” militare in Afghanistan fino al luglio  2011. La mozione presentata dal governo conservatore di minoranza venne votata anche dall’opposizione liberale. I guerrafondai avevano correttamente calcolato che se si fosse stabilita una data per il ritiro delle truppe, si sarebbe indebolita l’opposizione alla guerra che stava montando nell’opinione pubblica e si sarebbe guadagnato tempo per una partecipazione continuativa del Canada. Da allora, la situazione politica e militare in Afghanistan non ha fatto che peggiorare per le forze di occupazione ed i dirigenti politici stanno ora facendo balenare proposte per prorogare la data del ritiro per una missione militare che già costituisce una grave violazione della sovranità nazionale e dei diritti umani del popolo afgano.

On March 13, 2008, Canada's Parliament voted to extend the country's military “mission” in Afghanistan to July 2011. The motion by the minority Conservative government was supported by the opposition Liberals. The warmakers correctly estimated that fixing an exit date would deflect mounting opposition to the war among the Canadian public and buy time for Canada's continued participation. Since then, the political and military situation in Afghanistan has continued to deteriorate for the occupying forces, and leading politicians are now floating proposals to extend Canada's claimed exit date for a military mission that already constitutes a gross violation of the national sovereignty and human rights of the Afghan people.

asia occidental / género / entrevista Saturday April 17, 2010 00:03 byALB Noticias   image 1 image
RAWA (Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan - Asociación de las Mujeres Revolucionarias de Afganistán) es una agrupación clandestina que promueve la defensa de los derechos humanos en un Afganistán dividido entre un gobierno débil y fundamentalista auspiciado por las armas de las potencias occidentales y los talibanes. Con su compromiso por un movimiento popular y democrático, constituido sobre la educación de las mujeres afganas, básicamente analfabetas, RAWA se ha convertido en objetivo a batir para ambos contendientes.

Buscando denunciar la perniciosa invasión y conseguir apoyo y solidaridad de colectivos sociales españoles, una activista de RAWA ha llevado a cabo una gira de charlas por todo el estado español. Se trata de Mariam Rawi (nombre ficticio), una joven periodista y profesora que vive a caballo entre Afganistán y los campos de refugiados de Pakistán. A su paso por Logroño hemos podido conversar brevemente con ella.

Het bloedbad dat wordt uitgevoerd door de leiders van de islamitische republiek verplettert de vreedzame oppositie van het volk, wat een einde maakt aan de mythe dat door de islam geïnspireerde staten verschillen van de zogenaamde "seculiere" staten van het Westen: als de klassen die de macht hebben, of het nu een seculiere bourgeoisie of een religieuze bourgeoisie is, door het volk op straat wordt gevraagd verantwoording af te leggen voor hun macht, hun machtsmisbruik, hun voorrechten, hun beperkingen op de vrijheid voor de oppositie, is het gevolg altijd hetzelfde - hevige repressie, mensen worden neergeschoten, veiligheidskrachten keren zich tegen het volk om de demonstranten fysiek te vernietigen, of het nu arbeiders, vrouwen of studenten zijn.

The bloodbath being carried out by the leaders of the islamic republic is crushing the peaceful opposition of the people, putting an end to the myth that Islam-inspired States are different from the West's so-called "secular" States: when the classes in power, be they a secular bourgeoisie or a religious bourgeoisie, are called by the people on the streets to account for their power, their abuse of power, their privileges, their limitations on the freedom of opposition forces, the result is always the same - fierce repression, people being shot, security forces savagely launching themselves on the people to destroy the demonstrators physically, be they workers, women or students.

Il bagno di sangue con il quale i dirigenti della repubblica islamica stanno schiacciando la pacifica opposizione del popolo mette fine ad ogni pretesa alterità degli Stati di ispirazione islamica rispetto agli Stati cosiddetti "laici" dell'Occidente: quando le classi al potere, siano esse borghesie laiche o religiose, vengono chiamate dal popolo a rispondere in piazza del loro potere, degli abusi, dei privilegi, delle limitazioni della libertà che esse impongono alle opposizioni, allora inizia la repressione più feroce, si spara sulla gente, si lanciano le bestie dei corpi di sicurezza all'assalto per l'annientamento fisico dei manifestanti, siano essi lavoratori, donne, studenti.

“Come here, listen to this”, Ali slowly leafed through the pages of the local newspaper, “look, you see this small paragraph? This is an account from a fighter in the villages.” I asked him if he could translate. “Today we lost several fighters but we killed three Pakistani soldiers and shot down their helicopter”. I asked him whether he had visited the fighters in the Bolan Pass. “Yes, I’ve been there in my role as a government official but also as a Baloch, I negotiated with them on the release of a hostage, but I respect their fight”...
