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

A large force of Garda and council workers were deployed at 3.30am today, International Women's Day, to clear Occupy Dame Street (ODS) camp. The camp was completely demolished in the course of the eviction, campers intimidated and their personal property stolen. This was a level of force way out of proportion with the numbers in the camp (about 15 people) and stands in contrast with the lack of resources put into investigating what happened at Anglo, the collapse of which has left a debt of 26,000 Euro on every single person in the country.   [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Since the term ‘especifismo’ arrived in Brazil in the mid-1990s there has been a series of polemics or even confusions around it. There were, and unfortunately still are people who say that especifismo is not anarchism; they accuse especifista organisations of being political parties, among other absurdities. When we identify the FARJ as a specific anarchist organisation we are seeking, more than anything else, to locate within the discussion about anarchist organisation what the positions that we espouse are. read full story / add a comment
ireland / britain / economy / news report Friday March 02, 2012 23:57 by Paul
Wednesday the European Central Bank (ECB) gave out 530 billion euros in 3-year term loans to the private banks of the Eurozone. Together with the 490 billion they doled out last December, that's over 1 trillion euros. If pigs could fly and politicians never lied and every household in the country was magically able to pay the hated Household Tax, the total receipt would be 160 million euro. At that rate, it would take 6,250 years to amount to 1 trillion. It would also take 20 years to amount to the 3.2 billion euros the state are handing over to the Anglo bondholders on the 31st March coming. read full story / add a comment

The common theme of the week end demonstration was the anniversary 18 of the Ibrahimi Mosque massacre by the colonialist settler Dr. Goldstein and the intense harassment that followed it.... as if the punishment of the Palestinian victims is the logical conclusion. The demonstration in Hebron drew hundreds of Palestinians, substantial part of the Israeli anarchists against the wall, and other Israeli activists - more than 100, similar to the numbers a week before in the 7th year anniversary demo in Bil'in. Both the struggle in the occupied west bank against occupation, and the social justice struggle within Israel are on the verge of the Spring uprising. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Some three years of sporadic struggles in parallel to Bil'in till Ni'ilin village join as the second persistent location. It took additional two years and the addition of Ma'sare before stable and persistent locations of struggle expanded beyond the separation fence when the struggle in Beit Ummar stabilized an heroic Nabi Saleh confrontations with encroaching colonial settlement too, expand the scope of the joint struggle.

Today we, a group of autonomous environmental activists, hung a 40 square metre banner from the Holmenkollen ski jump to protest the Oslo Energy Forum. The forum is being held at Scandic Holmenkollen Hotel, which is located just a couple of hundred metres from the ski jump. There are two primary reasons for why we chose to have our banner action at this location: firstly, because it is a national landmark that lies in close proximity to the place where the forum is held, and secondly, because winter sports like skiing will be something only found in history books if the fossil fuel industry is allowed to continue at its current levels of pollution.

The joint struggle of the villages local popular comities and the Israeli "anarchists against the wall" initiative started about 12 years ago in the Maskha camp. Joint struggles were developed in various villages with various successes but only the struggle of Bil'in persisted for year after year holding high the flag of popular unarmed struggle and became the focus of attention and inspirations for Palestinians of the whole west bank, many thousands of international activists who joined us for short periods (and some for long ones)... spreading the news and the struggle after returning home. Even the few thousand of the Israeli wide spectrum of the radical left been in Bil'in at least once and helped us to prevent the marginalization of the popular Palestinian resistance. On the coming Friday - the 20th of February, we will celebrate our 10 years of contributing to the Palestinian Tsumud (persistence) - the only thing that prevented the Zionist total transfer out of the Palestinians.

The forth presidential term of Alexander Lukashenko will expire in 2015. In 21 years Lukashenko has managed to suppress almost all social struggles in the country, kill several political opponents in the 90s, and eradicate nearly all of the official opposition. Lukashenko didn’t allow Belarusian society to transcend the limits of Soviet mentality. Any complaint or criticism of the government are met with repression from the police or the KGB. Any attempts of organizing face with prosecution and hysteria from the state. The policy of the government can be described simply as follows: “Everything that cannot be controlled must be destroyed”. At this moment Belarusian state is slowly but steadily getting to the extermination of any dissent or independent thinking.

Activists from near and far villages came to Bil'in to support and to be inspired, and together started to struggle in their own villages.

Introduction: discussing the party model and mission – 1

Since the beginning of the Kobane siege by Daesh (ISIS) the Kurdish left, and specifically the Rojava model of social organisation has been studied and followed by several organisations, activists, networks and committed scholars. I decided to collaborate with KurdishQuestion.com to produce a series of short articles to expose (and prove) the similarities between the western (and not western too) anarchist tradition and democratic confederalism. While one of my concentrated areas of study is political theory (and radical political theory), I decided to help in drawing the parallels between both paths and familiarising them to one another. I hope this will help and all criticisms are welcome.
