A lot of the Israeli activists in the joint struggle with Palestinian popular initiative were skeptical about the contribution of the Anarchist Against the Wall initiative. They fail to see its contribution to recruiting and encouraging the less radical Israelis into initiating and/or participating in joint actions with Palestinians. They fail to see the contribution and legitimization of the struggle in the world arena; they fail to see the contribution for publicity - both within Israeli mainstream media and the world (Fife Brocken Cameras nominee for Oscar), and most of all the creation of a security net that prevents Israel from suppressing the popular struggle in a bloodbath and the mass arrest of Palestinian activists. The later peaks of Bab al-Shams (the Gate of the Sun) camp in Jerusalem and Al-Karamah (Dignity) at Beit Iksa no-one can ignore. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Bab al-Shams (la porta del sole) ha segnato un passo in avanti nelle azioni dirette non-armate organizzate dal comitato unitario dei comitati popolari dei villaggi coinvolti. I partiti politici che sostengono marginalmente la lotta non sono riusciti da tempo a cooptarla. La creatività del comitato unitario si è manifestata ad un livello superiore in questa azione, costringendo lo Stato israeliano a venir meno alle sue pretese di legge ed ordine, ad agire contro la sua stessa Alta Corte ed a distruggere il campeggio. I media mondiali sono stati nuovamente "arruolati" per promuovere la lotta non violenta contro l'occupazione. In ogni villaggio in cui si sono tenute le manifestazioni settimanali, alcuni attivisti sono stati tenuti nelle retrovie per garantire il prosieguo della lotta unitaria.

Bab Al Shams (the gate of the Sun) is a one step higher of the non-armed direct actions the joint comity of the villages popular comities involved in. The political parties that marginally support the struggle failed to co-opt it so far. The creativity of the joint comity rouse to an higher level in this action, forcing the Israeli state to disregard its pretension of law and order, and acted against its own higher court and destroyed the camp. The world media was "recruited" again to promote the non violent struggle against the occupation. In each village where weekly demos are done, few of the activist were left behind to keep the joint struggle going. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Intrecciati con gli interessi imperialistici nella regione, i sionisti nazional-socialisti diedero inizio alla migrazione degli ebrei nazionalisti verso la Palestina. Essa era intrecciata con le dinamiche ottomano-tedesco-britannico-statunitensi e gradualmente prese slancio. In quanto una delle ultime isole rimaste dall'era coloniale (principalmente perché ha coinvolto le grosse comunità di coloni e serviva ad interessi strategici), il suo tempo sta per scadere... ed ancora più velocemente dopo la "Primavera Araba".

A meno di tre settimane dalle elezioni politiche in Israele, i coloni stanno aumentando il livello di belligeranza con l'intervento delle forze di Stato che tengono a bada... i Palestinesi ed intensificano le aggressioni. Le potenze imperiali internazionali si astengono dal trattenere Israele, in attesa del dopo-elezioni. I dirigenti palestinesi "trattengono il fiato" e cercano di tenere calma la terza Intifada non armata a cui rivolgono apertamente le loro critiche. La pressione internazionale che si fa sentire.

Interwoven with the Western imperial interests in the region, the nationalist-socialists Zionists initiated the immigration of nationalist Jews to Palestine. It interwove with the Ottoman-German-British-US dynamics and gradually collected momentum. As one of the last islands remaining from the colonial era (mainly because it involved the big settlers community and served strategic interests), its time is running out.... and faster since the "Arab Spring". Sensing the end, the die-hard leadership of the Zionist settler colonialists - in a last desperate effort - continue as if the end were not in sight and even increase their onslaught with diminishing restraint. To the background of this month's election, the onslaught is collecting momentum over recent weeks - as if the third Intifada were what the Israeli elite wanted. The popular struggle collects momentum and more so at the weekends. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Non è un'eruzione improvvisa come è stato per le precedenti Intifada. Siamo di fronte ad una graduale crescita di attività interconnesse con un movimento a livello mondiale anch'esso in crescita con la campagna di boicottaggio BDS contro Israele. Le forze di sicurezza israeliane giocano la carta della minaccia degli anarchici contro il muro e mettono in guardia per la nostra azione di delegittimazione di Israele. La destra estrema israeliana, che fa sentire le insistenti pressioni sul primo ministro il quale tende a cedere quando la pressione è troppo alta, sposta il suo appoggio verso il partito più a destra e più importante.

Less than three weeks to the Israeli elections, the settler colonialists are raising the level of belligerence with state forces restraining... the Palestinians and increasing harassment. The international imperial powers are refraining from restraining Israel, waiting for the post-election era. The Palestinian elite is "holding its breath" and restraining the unarmed third Intifada it criticizes in the open. The approaching international pressure - both formal and non-formal - is making the Israeli elite very uneasy, like a person who is riding a tiger and fears for his life, thinking what will happen when he gets off. The popular struggles and the confrontation with the occupation forces is expanding gradually to more locations than the long-term joint struggles. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

It was not a sudden eruption as the previous Intifadas'' uprisings. It is a gradual increasing of activities interwoven with the increased world wide involvement with the B.D.S. calls to boycott Israel. The Israeli security forces focus the threats and warning of the anarchists against the wall activists about our contribution to the de-legitimizing of Israel. The extreme right Israelis who sense the increasing pressures on the prime minister who tend to yield when pressure is too high, shift their support to the more to the right (and principled) party. The activities for the cleansing transfer of Palestinians from the choicest areas continue even when some steps are curtailed due to resistance and international pressure.

Il fallimento di lungo periodo degli sforzi politici da parte dell'Autorità Palestinese per giungere a risultati concreti può far crescere la tanta frustrazione accumulata fino al punto di deflagrazione. L'iniziale incremento delle lotte locali non-armate si sta avvicinando al punto di esplosione nonostante l'appello dell'Autorità Palestinese a limitare la lotta nell'ambito dell'arena politica internazionale.

The failure so far of the political efforts by the Palestinian Authority to bring substantial results may increase the accumulation of frustration to the point that it may explode. The initial increase of non-armed local struggles is approaching explosion point in spite of the call by the Palestinian Authority to limit the struggle to the international political arena. In addition to the locations of the ongoing struggles, other locations are initiating such struggles. Beit Nuba and al-Mufakara are just two examples. The intensification of harassment up to the use of live ammunition during weekday raids in Ni'lin and Nabi Saleh may be part of other harassment by the Israeli state forces, whose escalation seems to ber aimed at initiating a Third Intifada.

Dopo la grossa sconfitta politica di Israele nell'attacco a Gaza e dopo la successiva sconfitta negli USA, la repressione messa in atto dalle forze di stato israeliane nei confronti delle manifestazioni settimanali ha dovuto fare i conti con ordini di contenimento. Lo si è visto in video in alcuni casi in cui piccole unità di soldati si sono date alla fuga di fronte al lancio di pietre dei giovani: un video dei più eloquenti è stato mandato e rimandato in onda sui canali TV israeliani.

After the mainly political defeat of Israel in the attack on Gaza and the following defeat in the US, the Israeli state forces repression of the weekly demonstrations was met with restraining orders. It was expressed in a few cases of small units of soldiers escaping from stone-throwing youth - the video of the most pictorial one played again and again on Israeli TV channels. Rightist "talking heads" complained that the fleeing soldiers insulted Israel and harsher measures must be taken. The more realistic ones pointed to the international loss of respect for Israel that harmed protesters would aggravate. In addition to the usual Beit Ummar, Bil'in, Al-Ma'sara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'lin, Qaddum, South Hebron hills, and Sheikh Jarrah, there was the addition this week of Kufr ad-Dik and Krayut.

Dopo anni di lotta persistente le prime crepe emettono una piacevole melodia. Il dolore dei caduti, dei feriti e di coloro che soffrono più di altri viene un po' mitigato dalla sconfitta subita da Israele a Gaza ed all'ONU. Sembra che la Tsumud, la resistenza e la lotta popolare non-armata stia iniziando a cambiare il corso delle cose in campo internazionale. Vediamo e rivediamo ancora una volta che quando la bilancia è in equilibrio, anche un piccolo gruppo di attivisti che persistono nella lotta può fare la differenza.

After years of persistent struggle the first cracks emit a more pleasant melody. The pains of the fallen, the injured, and these suffering more than others is softened a bit by the defeat of Israel in Gaza and the UN. It seems that the Tsumud, the resistance and the popular unarmed struggle start to change the flow of things in the international arena. We see it again and again that when the scales are in balance, even a small group of activists who persist in struggle can tip the scales. The joint struggle contribute its share in obstructing the efforts of the Israeli establishment to equate the struggle against Israel with antisemitism. The joint struggle even seems to collect momentum and more locations of popular and joint unarmed struggles are increasing. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

In addition joint demos and actions in Bil'in, Beit Ummar, Ma'sara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, South Hebron Hills, and Sheikh Jarrah, there were actions of the higher committee of the local grass root communities and other localities - both in the occupied West Bank and within Israel with the war in Gaza as focus. The long struggle against the settler colonialist Zionist project was reviewed in the conference commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Israeli anti-authoritarian, anti-capitalist Matzpen, whose heirs are the Anarchists Against the Wall. In it comrades stressed again the difference between the struggles against aspects of the Zionist project like military rule imposed on the Palestinians in the past within Israel and now in the 1967 occupied regions, and partial gains in it, and real solution only the social revolution in the whole region will bring. read full story / add a comment

La lotta unitaria ha preso un nuovo slancio. Domenica 11.11.12, il generale al comando della Cisgiordania centrale ha dichiarato zone militari chiusi per gli attivisti israeliani le aree interessate dalle manifestazioni unitarie del venerdì nei villaggi di Bil'in, Ni'lin, Nabi Saleh e Qaddum. Mercoledì 14, abbiamo lanciato la nostra sfida unendoci all'iniziativa del coordinamento generale del comitati di base locali. La guerra su Gaza è deflagrata mercoledì pomeriggio e gli anarchici contro il muro hanno preso parte alle manifestazioni in varie località di Israele. [English] read full story / add a comment

The joint struggle picked a new momentum. On Sunday 11-11-12 the general commanding the center of the west bank declared the Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nabi Saleh, and Quaddum locations of joint Friday demos as closed military regions for our activists on Fridays. On Wednesday we expressed our defiance by joining the initiative of the general comity of the local grass root comities. The war on Gaza flared Wednesday afternoon and the anarchists against the wall activists joined the demos in the various locations in Israel.

Visite inattese alle prime ore del mattino di domenica scorsa per gli anarchici contro il muro ed altri, con tanto di "regalo". Non è roba di tutti i giorni essere svegliati dalla polizia. Senza autorizzazione, sono entrati in casa nostra ed hanno sequestrato 4 pezzi di carta con le mappe dei villaggi di Bil'in, Kafr Qaddum, Ni'lin ed an-Nabi Saleh. Hanno detto che fino alla metà di marzo 2013 non sarei potuto andare in nessuno di questi villaggi. Hanno fatto un elenco di tutte le cose che han preso ed hanno insistito che firmassi la ricevuta.

Unexpected visitors came Sunday early morning to visit activists of the anarchists against the wall and others with a "present": It is not everyday I get a wake up call from the police. Without warrant,they entered our home and handed over four bits of paper each with a map showing one of the villages of Bil'in, Kfur Qaddum, Nil'in and An Nabi Salih. They explained that until mid-March 2013 I cannot go on Fridays to any of these villages. They recorded the whole thing and insisted on signing receipt. It took time to understand it was not a legal personal restriction order, but a bogus act of intimidation which have no legal meaning. As it was the initiative of the regional commander of the center of the occupied was bank I joked that may be he want us to shift the focus of our weekend joint actions to the southern region of Southern Hebron Hills, Ma'asara, and beit Ommar.

Desde hace ya varios meses, compañeras y compañeros de distintas regiones nos hemos organizado para construir un espacio a nivel estudiantil, que responda a la necesidad de transformar la sociedad. Nos reconocemos como parte del pueblo, y como tal, sentimos la necesidad material y el deber moral de incidir en nuestra realidad, hacia un horizonte donde no exista la dominación ni la explotación. Por ello, y en el contexto de la rearticulación del sector libertario en Chile, hemos decidido crear una nueva organización donde, con conciencia histórica, autocrítica y voluntad de construcción, aportemos desde lo estudiantil a la reconstrucción del tejido social y al avance del movimiento popular en la consecución de sus demandas estratégicas, desde una perspectiva clasista, feminista y libertaria.

La crescente pressione operata dalla campagna B.D.S. non solo preoccupa la classe dirigente israeliana, ma ne ha già provocato una spaccatura. Che si era manifestata nelle dimissioni del governo di Netaniahu e nell'indizione di nuove elezioni. L'esito è stato persino peggiore per lui. Ha perso la maggioranza all'interno della destra. Il suo 61% (contro il 59%) è stato ottenuto solo coalizzandosi con il centro-destra di Kakhlon che aveva già bloccato le mosse della destra tradizionale e di alcune tendenze di neoliberismo radicale. Un nuovo equilibrio di potere all'interno della classe dirigente israeliana potrebbe portare nel futuro immediato ad una coalizione con il partito di pseudo-sinistra della lista sionista o addirittura ad una diversa coalizione senza Netaniahu o persino senza il partito Licud. In questo contesto proseguono gli sgomberi di palestinesi - sia in Israele che in Cisgiordania. [English]

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.

26 mayo, 2015

Por Bruno Lima Rocha

La ciudad de Mahabad es conocida como la capital del Kurdistán iraní, y hoy opera como el epicentro, de la rebelión popular de los kurdos contra la autoridad chiita de Teherán. Durante un corto tiempo de duración, de la república del Kurdistán, que existió en 1946 bajo apoyo de la antigua Unión soviética, esta ciudad dio el nombre a un estado embrionario, cuyos líderes fueron fusilados por el régimen del Shah apoyado por los ingleses. Después de la Revolución Islámica de 1979, la situación de los kurdos del leíste no mejoró en la Región.

imageAnarchist in Ireland on todays Marriage equality referendum May 22 by andrew 1 comments

Southern Ireland is voting toward on whether to allow Marriage equality, that is to extend marriage to couples of the same gender. Young migrants have flocked back to the country in the last 24 hours to help insure the referendum passes. If it does Ireland will be the first country in the work to introduce Marriage equality by popular referendum yet it was one of the last countries in Europe to decriminalise sex between men. In that sense the referendum is about much more than the issue of Marriage but it also a battle against the 'old Ireland' of clerical control and an authoritarian state that sought to control all aspects of the lives of those under its control. The articles that follow are some of the many that the Workers Solidarity Movement have published, for the most part via their Facebook page.

imageClass Struggle, ‘Xenophobia’ and the Local Elite May 21 by Jonathan Payn 0 comments

The xenophobic violence and looting following King Zwelithini’s statement that foreigners “pack their bags and leave” spread to cities and townships across the country. However, the recent attacks are not an isolated incident; nor is Zwelithini solely responsible for fomenting it. Local elites – particularly those linked to the ruling party – also encourage anti-immigrant attitudes and actions. This article, based on discussions with Abahlali baseFreedom Park activists, looks at how local elites stimulate ‘xenophobia’ to protect their class interests, as well as how progressive working class activists have responded.

20 de maio de 2015, Bruno Lima Rocha

A cidade de Mahabad é conhecida como a capital do Curdistão iraniano, e hoje opera como o epicentro da rebelião popular dos curdos contra a autoridade xiita de Teerã. O Curdistão Leste (Rojhelat) viveu um momento de rebelião após o dia 7 de maio quando uma jovem curda se atirou do 4º andar de um hotel cinco estrelas onde trabalhava como camareira. O motivo do suicídio de Farinaz Xorowanî foi um ato de rebeldia contra agentes da inteligência iraniana (Itlaat) que, ao alegar querer interroga-la tentaram forçar um estupro. O sacrifício da trabalhadora resultou em rebelião franca e aberta, com as tropas anti-distúrbios da província e forças regulares da Guarda Revolucionária do Irã (Pasdaran) usando munição letal no meio da rua. Tal episódio, ao contrário de ser uma raridade, é a norma de convivência entre o regime dos Aiatolás e a esquerda curda. Nos dias posteriores, a polícia política dos aiatolás prendeu mais de 800 militantes sociais curdos, o que certamente irá aumentar a estatística regular de assassinados pelo Estado; cerca de cem ativistas por ano são enforcados pelas leis do fundamentalismo xiita.

Παρέμβαση στην είσοδο του Αμερικάνικου Προξενείου πραγματοποιήθηκε σήμερα στις 19.30 από 15 συντρόφους της Συλλογικότητας "Μαύρο & Κόκκινο" υπέρ των Εξεγερμένων της Βαλτιμόρης των Η.Π.Α. που δέχτονται την κρατική βία και καταστολή, με τις σχεδόν καθημερινές δολοφονίες κυρίως αφροαμερικανών από μπάτσους. Με το που φτάσαμε έξω από την εισοδο του εμπορικού κέντρου, οι ασφαλήτες που μας ακολούθησαν έδωσαν σήμα να κατέβουν τα ρολά στην Τσιμισκή, οπότε η κεντρική πύλη του εμπορικού κέντρου (στο κτήριο όπου στεγάζεται και το προξενείο) έμεινε κλειστή για μια ώρα που κράτησε η παρέμβαση. Μοιράστηκε το παρακάτω κείμενο σε πολύ κόσμο που περνούσε από το σημείο ενώ πετάχτηκαν και τρικάκια. Οι μπάτσοι δεν προσέγγισαν το σημείο, παρά μόνο με ασφαλήτες που επιτηρούσαν αλλά στα cb ακούστηκαν πολύ αγχωμένοι φοβούμενοι μην προβούμε σε κάποια κίνηση εναντίον της ϊερής αγελάδας" του προξενείου των ΗΠΑ.
