The joint struggle continue this week with wounds of Anata pogrom by of duty settler colonialists of the state forces living in Anatot still hurting. The state force officers on duty but did nothing to prevent it...banned the Friday demonstration at the site. The tension around the return of the war prisoner Gilad Shavit and release of 1000 Palestinians in return were subject most talked. In regular Friday demos and in special ones near Ofer concentration camp solidarity with prisoners was prominent. The season of olive picking started few days ago increased involvement of Israeli activists in the protection farmers from harassment by settler colonialists. The usual locations of Arakib Beit Umar, Bil'in, Ma'asara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, Sheikh Jarrah, were joined by Jayus. The activity of the High Follow up Committee of the popular grass root comities collect momentum and involve coordinating of multi location demonstrations. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

The 'Occupy X' movement arrived in Ireland over the weekend when a core group of around 50 people set up camp at the Central Bank Plaza on Dame street. Numbers grew to a few hundred at times over the next days and nights as supporters came down to join in for a while and the curious stopped to see what was going on. Issues highlighted by participants included the bank bail out, IMF intervention & the ongoing Great Oil & Gas Giveaway. read full story / add a comment

Dale Farm is a halting site which is also the largest concentration of Irish Travellers in Britain, being home to over 1000 people (about 100 families), many of whom are said to have their cultural roots in Rathkeale in Limerick. It was started in the 1960s when a number of families bought the former scrapyard site and Basildon council granted planning permission for 40 houses. This happened in the context of broad progress in race relations and a brief breeze of relative official tolerance for Travellers, epitomised in the liberal-sponsored 1968 Caravan Sites Act. Basildon Council have put aside an £18 million budget to bulldoze the site and forcefully evict the families (a staggering figure when you consider that in 2010 the total UK budget for providing Travellers with halting facilities was less than 30 million).

mashriq / arabia / iraq / community struggles / news report Monday October 10, 2011 20:10 by Ilan S.
The peak of the struggle was the escalation in the settler colonialists' terror in 'Anata, where a mob of local settlers - including personnel of the State forces who live there, attacked Jewish radical activists accompanying Palestinians who tried to access their land. The State forces - police and gendarmes - present stayed presumably "neutral" but threatened activists and even arrested three. As a measure against the settlers' escalating terror, the joint monitoring project of the popular grassroots committees is collecting momentum. The "regular" locations of joint struggle - both within the 1948 borders, mainly the Bedouins of the south, and Jaffa; the weekly joint demonstrations the Anarchists Against the Wall are involved in: Beit Ummar, Bil'in, Nabi Salih, Ni'lin, and Ma'sarah; and Sheikh Jarrah too. Other sporadic locations like at-Tawna were active too. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

The desperation of the settler colonialists resulting from the approaching of the moment of truth and the shattering of their dream of the enlarged Israel, cause mounting of brutal assaults. Latest escalation was in the brutal assault on the Israeli non violent activists in the village Anata near the Settler colonialist settlement Anatot. The escalation was also of the state forces who were present at the confrontation but all they did was arresting three activist on concocted charges. State force personnel living in the settlement who were of duty participated in the assault. The main locations of joint struggles the anarchists against the wall activists are the leading Israelis: Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nabi-Saleh, and Ma'asara keep the struggle going, and so are the struggles in Sheikh Jarrah, Arakib, Wallaje, and the South of Hebron Hills.

Bil'in was the first of the joint struggle nonviolent struggle to persist. During the years new joint struggles started with involvement of the previous joint struggles and persist for long time. Older locations who did not persist, join again from time to time. Last year or so few additional struggles initiated by villages activists on their own initiative. The organizing of the joint comity of the local struggles enhance the struggle and initiate from time to time concentration of efforts in one location. Lately, another joint initiative of the comity intending for monitoring the colonialist settlers terror was started. Main locations within Israel and in the occupied Palestinian west bank expand: Araqeeb, 'Anata, 'Asirah, Beit Ummar, Bil'in, Jaljuliya, Ma'sara, Nabi Salih, Ni'iln, Sheikh Jarrah, South Hebron hills, the social struggle, Tel Aviv.

Day after day, year after year, the struggle against the Israeli advanced expansion, suppression and pressures on the Palestinians to be transferred out of the region continues all the time. The efforts of persistence - Tsumud in Arabic - continue throughout the years with a scant portion of the members of the Jewish community joining the struggle. Some of them join only specific aspects of the struggles. A very few join the struggle wholeheartedly, without reservation. The struggle against the separation fence initiated by grassroots activists of villages along the route which was joined by the Israeli Anarchists Against the Wall (AAtW) in 2003 has brought the non-violent direct-action mode of struggle into the media focus - thanks to a large extent to the video photographers of the AAtW and the ActiveStills collective. In recent years more and more Israeli radicals have joined us or have initiated their own projects. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle interwoven with the expectation for the UN show down
Though Israel is in panic, and many Palestinians are with mixed feelings - the joint struggle against the separation fence, occupation, and the suppression of the Israeli Palestinian continue. The struggle against the new wave of attack on the Bedouins - both within Israel and the occupied west bank continue. So is the struggle against the terror of the colonialist settlers against the Palestinian neighbors. And of course the struggle against the separation fence already built and in building. Special focus is in fierce struggle in occupied east Jerusalem - mainly Silwan and Sheikh Jarah. The main locations are: Arakib, Beit Ummar, Bil'in, Kufur Qaddom, Ma’sara, Nabi Saleh, Sheikh Jarah, Silwan, Social Struggle, South of Hebron Hills. The social struggle against the neo-liberalism continue in the various locations in both Jewish and Palestinian communities. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Derrick Jensen represents the current peak synthesis of primitivist and insurrectionist thought. And while both trends are declining within anarchism thanks to the global upswing of mass struggle against austerity, like in Egypt, Wisconsin, Spain, and so on, such trends are still able to get a good event together in Minneapolis, like the hundred or so people who attended the showing of END: CIV, a movie inspired by Jensen’s writing, and like it, a dead end for any relevant conversation on the present moment. read full story / add a comment
ireland / britain / anarchist movement / news report Friday September 09, 2011 22:55 by Sean Matthews
Historian Mairtin O Cathain’s ‘Wee Black Booke’ has now been added to our archive for you to read or download. In it he pulls together reports of anarchism in and around Belfast in the years from 1867 to 1973. With no local movement for much of this period, the pamphlet looks at some individuals whose political activity merited mention in the media of the time. O Cathain’s work stops before the emergence in the late 1970s of the groups from which contemporary anarchist organisations Workers Solidarity Movement and Organise! can trace their roots.

The Fine Gael party was confronted with angry scenes at not one but two different blockades during a meeting of the parliamentary party in Galway city yesterday. Taoiseach Enda Kenny and his cabinet were attending their pre-budget think-in at the luxury Radisson hotel when some 30 students from the NUIG Free Education for Everyone (FEE) group and the Students’ Union blockaded the entrance in protest at the government’s policy of education cuts, registration fee increases and the ever-looming prospect of full fees. They were joined by two dozen members of the Save Roscommon Hospital Alliance who were equally intent on showing the Fine Gael party what they think of their callous indifference to the welfare of the working class. read full story / add a comment
southern africa / workplace struggles / press release Thursday September 08, 2011 15:49 by Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, James Pendlebury, Komnas Poriazis
Beginning on Sunday 28 August, Wits students have been littering parts of campus in solidarity with the cleaners’ strike. Cleaners throughout South Africa are demanding a living wage of R4 200 per month: this compares with less than R2 000 paid to cleaners at Wits, who are employed by outsourcing companies such as Supercare. The strike has been undermined, at Wits and elsewhere, by the presence of scab labour; Wits management and the outsourcing companies are striving for “business as usual”. This undermines the entire purpose of the strike, which is to compel exploiter-managers to meet workers’ demands by withdrawing their labour, by preventing the job from getting done – by making sure the campus is not clean. read full story / add a comment
Palestine-Israel, The involvement of Israeli activists in uprising was in parallel to joint struggle

Palestine-Israel, The involvement of activists in the Israeli uprising was in parallel to the joint struggle ---- The Israeli uprising included also the Israeli Palestinian citizens. Within the social justice struggle, the anarchist against the wall were involved mainly in the Lewinski tent camp that included the African refugees and in the Jaffa Jewish-Palestinian tent camp. We continued - though with smaller numbers in the regular joint struggle with the occupied west bank villagers in Beit Ommar, Bil'in, Qaddom, Ma'asara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, South of Hebron hills, Wallaje. Both in Israel and the occupied regions the vibrations of the nearing 20th September UN declaration of the Palestinian state was in the air. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

The joint struggle in the occupied West Bank continues to the background of the widespread social justice struggle in Israel. The "Olive Revolution" was expressed mainly in Friday's demonstration in Qalandiya. The Anarchists Against the Wall and village activists of Ni'lin, Bil'in and Nabi Salih converged in Qalandiya instead of the usual local actions. In spite of this, the Bil'in Friday demo was not canceled. The other struggles in South of Hebron Hills and the Saturday actions in Walaja and Beit Ummar were not missed either. The ferment and struggle against the settler project in eastern Jerusalem, occupied Silwan, continues too. The struggle for social justice in Israel also includes the Palestinian citizens of both the "mixed" towns and the Palestinian ones. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

The sudden end of the Gaddafi regime some 6 months after the start of the Libyan revolt leaves some difficult questions unanswered for the left. Gaddafi’s determination to physically crush the revolt quickly transformed it into a civil war, a civil war that saw considerable imperialist intervention on the rebel side, intervention that was essential to their eventual victory. This and Gaddafi’s historic record led to some on the left taking his side in the civil war while other organisations tried to balance support for the ‘Arab spring’s’ arrival in Libya with opposition to imperialism.

The people of the region are starting to hold their breath looking forward for the middle of September reshuffle. Meanwhile, the usual locations of joint struggle: Beit Umar, Bil'in, Jerusalem-Al-Kuds, Silwan, Ma'asara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, South of Hebron Hills, and the inter Israeli social justice struggles continue. Though the main trend of the struggle against neo-liberalism austerity do not refer to the occupied Palestinian regions and Gaza, it does include the Israeli Palestinians which suffer in addition to neo-liberalism the suppression and discrimination and still advancing robbery of their lands. In spite of suspected inflammation in military clashes related to Gaza the social justice struggle continue - including a many thousands strong silent demonstration in Tel Aviv (5000 to 30000 according to various sources - my count was: "one, two, three, many").
