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. As the Summer begins, the political climate is warming the police "invitation" for interrogations activists. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

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 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.

Palestine-Israel, After the first major victory of the third Intifada the joint struggle the AAtW involved in just persist ---- The victory of the hunger strike of Palestinian prisoners and their pick of the administrative prisoners was so unexpected that the wind as if left us. However, the third Intifada do not extinguish.The Palestinian farmers accompanied by Israeli and international activists confront brutal settlers protected by Israeli state forces. The usual week end joint demos continue and the coming summer seems to promise an escalation in both the struggle against occupation and for social justice within Israel.

The slow-motion car crash that is the ongoing Eurozone crisis has hit yet another seizure point. The previous weekend’s French and Greek elections, Sunday’s German election in Nordrhein-Westfalen and the threat of a second Greek election next month, has raised the Eurozone stress levels back to panic levels. Hanging over the whole situation is the spectre of a death foretold - a funeral for the vision of the Euro as the party that no-one ever leaves. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

All over the West Bank thousands of people took to the streets in support of the hunger striking prisoners. The third intifada collected momentum. It started with hunger strike of administrative prisoners held without trail, with solidarity demos, and joined by 1500 Palestinian prisoners - both in solidarity with the administrative ones and in demand for improving condition of the incarcerated. There were demos and vigils of solidarity daily - both in the occupied territories and within Israel. The weekly demonstrations made it their central theme. After nearly 80 days for the two longest hunger strikers, it seems their death is imminent after the Israeli highest court of "justice" approved of the unyielding refusal of the state to retreat from their administrative jailing. State forces vacillate between harsh repression of demos and restraining - expression of their uncertainty of the evolving third Intifada and mounting international pressure. read full story / add a comment

The usual week end struggle of the anarchists against the wall with the grassroots popular committees was interwoven with the hunger strike of Palestinian administrative prisoners. After two strikers were released when their lives were in imminent danger, the hunger strike collected momentum in prison and out, as the few hundreds of administrative prisoners were joined by more than thousand of other Palestinian prisoners in Israeli concentration camps and prisons. Demonstrations occur daily and some of them within the 1948 borders of Israel. The Israeli state intensify the repression of both the prisoners, the demonstrations in support of them in the occupied territories, and even within Israel. The peak within Israel was the arrest and physical harassment of 17 of our comrades who were protesting in front of the prison hospital in Ramle, where two striker are dying. read full story / add a comment
poland / czech / slovakia / the left / opinion / analysis Thursday May 03, 2012 22:49 by akai
Compared to many places in Europe, the socio-political situation in Poland is quite tragic with nearly complete right-wing ideological hegemony and attacks on workers' rights and access to public services which go years beyond the reforms just being introduced in the rest of Euope. With little social response to it. As part of one of the few organized pockets of resistance, I try to focus and try to go forward, yet taking a sober look around, the forces that are gaining as the crisis worsens are from the right and extreme right, while the left flounders and the anti-authoritarian movement struggles to keep afloat during a period of social resignation. read full story / add a comment

Last week there was an escalation in the pressure against the Palestinians in chosen locations that Israel wants to transfer them from - in the south and East Jerusalem neighborhoods. After the first successful hunger strike of two Palestinian administrative detainees, the hunger strike of 1,500 administrative detainees is widescale and the demonstrations of support and solidarity hunger strikes are abundant. In addition to the weekly demonstrations promoting this theme, Ramallah and the concentration camp of Ofer are the main locations, with mounting confrontations between demonstrators and Israeli State forces. In addition to the social struggle within Israel that is gaining momentum, we had actions and solidarity demos with the African refugees. A May 1st demo with a black block will start in Tel Aviv in the early evening. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment
north america / mexico / anarchist movement / press release Monday April 30, 2012 22:54 by Chris Alexander
Since May 1, 2006 we have seen a slow opening up of mass struggles on a scale not seen in recent memory, amplified by the silent economic crash in 2008. From the massive day without an immigrant to the historic Arab Spring; the Wisconsin workers uprising to the prisoners strikes in Georgia and California; Occupy Wall Street to the rallies for Justice for Trayvon Martin; General strikes of students in Chile and Quebec and of workers in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. People committed to real change cannot help but feel the wind in our sails. People are rising and refusing, struggles are igniting, common ground is revealing itself, we are beginning to feel and take back our power, everywhere.

Despite the rise of new fighting forces, pain is growing not decreasing. Symbolic changes at the peak of empire—codename Obama—have only served to further entrench the direction of decline, with Democrats bringing the stick when the Republicans aren’t there to make their bad cop look good. Deportations have increased, prisons are overflowing, the local face of a global war given new legitimacy, while organized racist violence dares to seize an ever greater public stage. Cutbacks and the destruction of public safety nets pay for corporate welfare and bankers’ bailouts. Ecological destruction continues apace: tar sands mining, fracking, nuclear power, and the daily grind of a system that cannot long coexist with dignified human life on earth. read full story / add a comment

Israel state is in panic from the coming third Intifada. It did an overkill efforts to prevent a few hundred international activist from entering. While in media focus created by it, it had a big shame when Israeli colonel was on video showing brutal hitting of a Danish cyclist in a troop cycling in a demo along the Jordan river valley. The Bil'in seventh international conference was in the focus of the joint struggle not pushing aside the weekly joint demonstrations of the anarchists against the wall have with the popular comities of Beit Ummar, Bi'lin, Kufr A-Dik, Sheikh Jarrah, Al-Ma’sara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, Kufr Qaddum, Walaje. Week after week, more than 50 Israelis activists are mobilized with the AAtW and more than 100 other Israeli radicals with various other initiatives are promoting popular struggle against occupation and hampering transfer.

When the call for the third non armed Intifada is issued by the Palestinian leader Marwan Burguti from his jail cell, the 7th Bil'in Conference of popular struggle is both celebration the log way we made, commemoration the martyrs murdered by the Israeli state forces, solidarity with the activists in jail and opportunity for wishing health for all those injured during the non yielding struggle. Hundreds of internationals, Palestinians from the whole west bank, and two dozen Israeli activists participated in the first day of the conference. It happened after a week and of joint struggles in various locations of the occupied Palestine, and it will end in the Friday demo in Bil'in that symbolize the unyielding joint non armed struggle against the separation fence that now is on the verge of transforming into the much fiercer Intifada. (This explain the vicious attack on the Nabi Saleh, Qaddum villages and Beit Ummar whose struggle is not related to the Wall. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

The involved of the Israeli anarchists against the wall initiative and other Israeli radicals that joined us, within the popular non armed struggle of the grass root Palestinian communities, prevented the Israeli state to suppress it with rivers of blood. Now, that it collected momentum, the most popular Palestinian leader Marwan Burguti call for the third Intifada. It may take time to develop as the Palestinian authority do not seem to be happy for this development... But, may be it will not be able to put too many sticks in the wheels that start to spin. The Israeli state seems to be nearly helpless to stop this development but they vent their frustration on the heroic people of Nabi Saleh that are the symbol of the expanded of the struggle beyond the confrontations regarding the separation fence/wall.

It is not an easy thing to continue the grass root non armed popular struggle week after week, year after year... But, nothing keep the back more straight and the spirits higher than the tsumud (persistence) in the struggle against the suppression and the persecution of the Israeli state forces. They regarding the popular struggle even as more potent than us, but are often vacillating between a ferocious steps of repression, and retreat from them due to wider political considerations. It is still vivid with me the memory of one of the intense confrontations. It was in the first year of the struggle in Bil'in. The state forces tried to impose a strict curfew and prevent about 450 Israelis fro joining the villagers in a demo against the building of the separation fence. After a siege around the village and tens of armed cars in it with tear gas shooting and arrests, they fought us viciously from down till afternoon... when they gave up and went away... and we marched undisturbed to the separation fence and along it - the first time after more than half a year of preventing us from doing it.

It was a second Friday with Israeli activist of the anarchists against the wall initiative seriously wounded. Last week demo it was a metal bullet rubbed by rubber that hit the nap of the neck of one of our group in Naby Saleh. The previous Friday it was a tear gas canister that broke the leg of another comrade. It seems the state force stop to discriminate between us and the Palestinians in the demonstrations. They need may be another scandal in the Israeli media following a serious assault on an Israeli activist documented by us. Though it is not easy, the new persistent villages struggles are slowly absorbed by our initiative. Bil'in and Ni'ilin who were in the front of the struggle and repression are receding to the background, Naby Saleh draw most of the pressure, and we still have to see how it will be in Qaddum and A-Dic.

It takes time till a new village that started to involve in the persistent non-armed popular struggle catch the consistent weekend demonstrations. Beit Dajan seems to be the new addition, but only the coming weeks will tell. This week the hard core is consisted with Beit Ummar, Bil'in, A-Dik, Ma'asara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarrah, to whom are added the South Hebron actions in support of harassed farmers, and the occupied Jerusalem neighborhood Silwan. Qalandia checkpoint which see more often actions had its focus this week too. The escalation of the war drumming in the assaults on Gaza increased the already high tension resulting from the ferment of the whole region. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

The damage to the Israeli economy seems to be yet only marginal... but the margin expand now faster. Some of the firm already yield to the pressure targeted at areas in the settlements of the 1967 occupation and regroup back to the Israeli areas of 1948, in spite of the loss in government bribes and cheaper work force. The Israeli media is full with warning and even beginning of fear mongering. The connection between the joint struggle in the demos and the B.D.S. and the development of the boycott is acknowledged. Mean time the efforts to transfer of the Palestinians from key areas - the Bedouins in the south of the 1948 areas and in area C of the 1967 occupation intensify, as if they know that the opportunities to do it will end soon. Mean time, the non armed Friday demos are suppressed inconsistently with special treatment to Qadum. [Italiano]

As much as this pains those who have participated in the anarchist communist experience between 2011 and 2014 in the Canadian prairies, today, Prairie Struggle announces its official secession and subsequent disbandment. To this day, Prairie Struggle was the only specific platformist organization in the Canadians prairies. Though some may recall the existence of an anarchist communist group in Regina affiliated to the ACF (Anarchist Communist Federation of North America) in the 80s, organized anarchism in the prairies has had many difficulties, some of which the Prairie Struggle Project has failed to overcome. Despite its downfall, Prairie Struggle, for one last time, offers a look into the organization, its failures and its small victories.

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.

imageNotes towards a history of Italian anarchism in Egypt (by Leonardo Bettini, translation) Jun 12 by Leonardo Bettini 0 comments

English translation of the overview of early Italian anarchists in Egypt, from Leonardo Bettini, "Bibliografia dell'anarchismo, volume 2, tomo 2: periodici e numeri unici anarchici in lingua italiana pubblicati all'estero (1872-1971)" (CP editrice, Firenze, 1976), translation by Nestor McNab. Via Lucien van der Walt. Lucien van der Walt note: This is NOT a history of anarchism in Egypt as a whole, least of all of its important impact on the Arabic-speaking and Greek population, which can be found in work by writers like Tony Gorman. Nonetheless it is valuable, and not previously widely available in English. Worth noting for contemporary reflection is the destructive role of I. Parrini's [aka "Un vecchio” aka L'Orso /"the Bear"],"anti-organizationalism in disorienting the movement in the late 1800s. This was overcome in the 1900s, a period of great advance for the movement in the country. There is also much of interest, even if incomplete, on the role in the unions and popular education, although it grossly underestimates the successes, especially among the indigenous.

First of all, I should mention a couple of issues in Kurdistan of Turkey (Bakur) that are strongly connected to the subject. Between 08/05 and 22/05/15 I visited a number of big towns in Bakur, including: Amed (Diyarbakir), Van, Colemerge (Hakari) and Gavar. Later I returned to Suruc and was hoping to cross the border to Kobane.
My main purpose for visiting there were three important points: first: understanding the similarity and differences between the Democratic Self Administration (DSA) in Bakur and Rojava. Second: Reconstruction of Kobane, and third the type of economy that Rojava can have in the future. Although the friends in Peoples ‘ Democratic Party (HDP) , other organisation and the Working Committees of Rojava in Amed and Suruc tried hard to arrange my trip to Kobane but it did not happen.
There are two important issues to talk about. These are:

Like in 2008, the recent wave of anti-immigrant violence and looting of foreign-owned stores that followed King Zwelithini’s statement that foreigners must “pack their bags and leave” quickly spread to cities and townships across the country. Unlike other places in Johannesburg, however, there were no reports of xenophobic violence in Thembelihle and, although the violence spread to numerous parts of Soweto in 2008, this adjacent township was unaffected then too. This article, based on an interview with an activist from the Thembelihle Crisis Committee (TCC), looks at how working class self-organisation and solidarity helped curb or prevent the outbreak of xenophobic attacks and attempts to draw lessons for preventing future attacks.
