Ésta es nuestra palabra sencilla que busca tocar el corazón de la gente humilde y simple como nosotros, pero, también como nosotros, digna y rebelde. Ésta es nuestra palabra sencilla para contar de lo que ha sido nuestro paso y en donde estamos ahora, para explicar cómo vemos el mundo y nuestro país, para decir lo que pensamos hacer y cómo pensamos hacerlo, y para invitar a otras personas a que se caminan con nosotros en algo muy grande que se llama México y algo más grande que se llama mundo. Esta es nuestra palabra sencilla para dar cuenta a todos los corazones que son honestos y nobles, de lo que queremos en México y el mundo. Ésta es nuestra palabra sencilla, porque es nuestra idea el llamar a quienes son como nosotros y unirnos a ellos, en todas partes donde viven y luchan. read full story / add a comment

Marcos summarises the work of the Zapatistas to date and the betrayal of the peace deal by all the political parties. He says the results of the Consulta process should soon be known. "Now we shall decide whether we are going to do something else, and we will make the results public at the proper time. We are now making clear - in order to end the speculations - that this "other thing" does not entail any offensive military action on our part. We are not, on our part, planning nor discussing reinitiating offensive military combat." read full story / add a comment

This article was for publication in Red and Black Revolution, Autumn 2005. News has just come through through of a Zapatista communique that appears to be a preparation for a return to war. At this stage it is not clear what is about to happen so I am releasing the article as I think it provides a useful background of events in the last couple of years and the sort of reasons why the Zapatistas might have decided to return to armed struggle. read full story / add a comment

From the recent Zapatista communique it looks like a return to war is almost certain. So for all those interested I'm calling an emergency solidarity meeting in 5 Merrion Row (above the Centra) for 8pm this Thursday.

The EZLN (Zapatista National Liberation Army) came briefly to the worlds attention when they seized several towns in Chiapas on New Years day in 1994. Since then most of the support the Zapatistas have received is strongly based on the idea that the Zapatistas are different. Different not just from the neoliberal world order they oppose but, more fundamentally, different from the armed revolutionary groups that exist and have existed elsewhere in the world. This study on the Zapatistas written by an Irish anarchist in 2001 explains this in more detail. read full story / add a comment

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle is still kicking even if on lower level* 17:34 Tue 12 Jul by Ilan S. 1 comments

The joint non armed struggle of the Israeli anarchists against the wall with local activists which confronted the Israeli state forces was unique at the beginning and drew to it less radical Israelis. Along the years were efforts to unite the local struggles and rise the level of activity but both Palestinian and Israeli authorities thwarted it. Alternative projects in the less radical Israeli circles diminish the pool the AAtW recruit. In the Palestinian side some of the successes and softening of the Israeli suppression contributed its share for dropping out of the on going joint struggle. The radical change of suppression of the Friday demos in Bil'in - mainly not shooting us any more with bullets and tear gas grenades, and the Ramadan rose some second thoughts even in the most persistent activists. But, the Tsumud (persistent) moral was regained in the relative big demo of 8 July.

El lugar fue un centro de observación de estrellas y un espacio espiritual y político sagrado muy importante para este antiguo pueblo indígena.

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle continue in spite of the drop out of activists* 02:41 Wed 08 Jun by Ilan S. 1 comments

Two consecutive Fridays without being shot at after 11 years can destabilize even long time activist like me.... For 13 years the anarchists against the wall initiative and Palestinian partners continue the struggle even when the expectation for practical gains diminished. Changes in the separation fence/wall are less likely than ever. The remaining road blocks are the ones which are not just for marginal harassments. The diminishing hardship inflicted on activists opened other personal options than struggle. However, there are still a hard core of old time activists and some new of the younger generation. The contribution of the joint struggle to gains in the international support is more obvious than ever, and even less radical joint struggles continue in parallel like Sheikh Jarakh, Taayush in the south and "militants for peace".

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle persist in spite of burn-out of veteran activists*. 12:26 Sat 07 May by Ilan S. 1 comments

The first years of the joint struggle against the wall had some gains that drew activists to the struggle. However, for years the continuous joint struggle have much more gains, but not on the ground for people to see with their eyes. Gradually both Palestinians and Israeli activists dropped out with not so many to replace them. Still, on the weekly demonstrations the participants - Israelis, internationals, and Palestinians are far from any thought on quitting. We see the changes in the international arena. Taste of it is brought to us by the international activists who keep coming. If the weekly demos reminded activists the activity of Sisyphus of rolling a heavy rock uphill to the summit just to have it down again, it is clear to any one who see the whole picture that the rolling of the rock uphill again and again is decimating the hill and may be we are not so far from the last rolling of the rock up the hill.

textPalestine-Israel, New people join, some veterans left, pressures intensify... but the joint struggle... 17:13 Sat 02 Apr by Ilan S. 0 comments

Last Friday (1.4) lot of anarchist flags again in Bil'in challenging the new efforts to put end to the Friday demos in the village. The long range tear gas cannisters prevent any interaction with the Israeli soldiers and stoped the demonstrators from exiting the village - like in the demonstrations in Bil'in eleven years ago before the intense efforts to put end to the demonstrations was replace with the contention of them; and like in the other locations - Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, and Qaddum where the efforts to put end to the demonstrations intensify. (So are with out the success the intense efforts to strangle the south of Hebron hills activities with other means.) People with keen ears can already hear the beginning of the countdown towards the end of the imperial settler colonial project in the East of the Mediterranean sea. May be the acceleration of the process is the result of the accumulation of the fiascos of Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Libya...

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle continue in spite of the huge changes in the region* 03:28 Thu 17 Mar by Ilan S. 1 comments

On the twelfth year of joined struggle in Bil'in it lost its glamour. Many of the activists lost the excitement of the direct action confrontation which is not a new thing any more. The expansion of the joint struggle to other locations and the expanding of the non armed struggle in the west bank contributed to it too. Many of the activists just "moved on" to a less intensive ways of life. But, some old time activists can not "let go". The other day, I searched the http://archive.org/web/ for the old site of: "This appeal, the first to call on-line for a boycott against Israel, was posted in April of 2001".(http://matzpun.com)... and read again our 35 original signatories of this pre-BDS. The majority are still in the struggle. Looking back on my 65 years of struggle I regard ainfos.ca, this petition, the joint struggle in Bil'in and my stories from the year 2100 - 50 years after the revolution* as the most significant ones.

textPalestine-Israel, The eleven years joint struggle in Bil'in as a seed for the third youth intifada.* 16:36 Sun 21 Feb by Ilan S. 1 comments

At the beginning, the joint struggle in Bil'in of the Israeli Anarchists Against The Wall with the local activists differed only with a consisted Fridays direct actions against the construction of the separation fence. The Israeli state response was a prolonged effort to block the participation of the Israeli activists that failed due to geographic conditions, persistence of the Israeli activists, and our ingenuity. One of the restricting factors on the suppression efforts of the state forces was wide spread sympathy for these demos in the Israeli media, and public. In a desperate efforts the army sent covert agents to initiate stone throwing from the demo on the state force. After a long while they succeeded. Youngsters of the village got into the stone throwing habit. For years it was all over the media and contributed to the stone throwing culture of the Palestinian youth. This was a significant contributor factor to the already 4 months old "Children Intifada".

textPalestine-Israel, The joint struggle in the focus of the extreme right "leftists' bashing"* 15:09 Sun 14 Feb by Ilan S. 1 comments

The mounting international pressure on Israel with the B.D.S. as catalyst, initiated a rightist onslaught on the activists of the joint struggle. With cooperation of the main TV channel, two activists were arrested - even blamed to be involved in murder of a Palestinian collaborator of settlements... only to be released unconditionally weeks later. As part of the onslaught I got few seconds in the rightist item in the main TV news program summing our position that no state is a solution - not two states and even one democratic state is impossible to achieve before the Zionist settler colonialist project will be defeated by social revolution in the whole region. In another wide distribution of the rightist video item I was presented as claiming that the chant in the joint demos for freedom to Palestine from the river to the see is not a call for a state for the Palestinians, but for a joint secular democratic state for all the inhabitants - Palestinians, Jews, and others... It seems we owe them rightists for the wide publicity.

imageZapata y el indígenismo Apr 27 by Lucha Libertaria - Rebeldía Contrainformativa 0 comments

Hace poco hace 97 años (el 10 de Abril), moría Emiliano Zapata tras ser manipulado y engañado para ser abatido en una emboscada donde ni siquiera se encontraba preparado por las fuerzas estatales. Un militante, un revolucionario social que hasta el último día de vida luchó por la transformación total de la sociedad de forma conjunta con el pueblo, para alcanzar la verdadera justicia social. Zapata ,si bien nunca se definió o se tuvo conocimiento de un conciencia deliberadamente anarquista, su praxis y su lucha por la Tierra y la Libertad, son evidentemente una praxis libertaria. Además, es claro que se agrupó durante el periodo de la revolución mexicana, con gran cantidad de individuos libertarios, que variaban desde militantes del Partido Liberal Mexicano, durante su periodo comunista libertario, cuando había una enorme influencia magonista; hasta otras organizaciones como fueron las feministas libertarias, Las Hijas de Anahuac. Estos y muchos otros individuos que compartieron experiencias, charlas y luchas con Zapata fueron configurando en él, así no fuera con un discurso explícitamente anarquista, al Zapata que vendría a ser reconocido con el máxime: “La tierra es de quien la trabaja.”

imageCrisis Arijuna* del Pueblo Wayuu Mar 08 by Colectivo ContraInformativo Sub*Versión 0 comments

"...la expansión de la frontera... convirtió a la región en tierra de guerra por las fricciones entre indios y españoles, entre las distintas parcialidades constreñidas en el uso ancestral de las tierras, y entre estos grupos y aquellos que habían sido sometidos a servidumbre. En el ánimo de los nativos estaba considerar enemigos irreconciliables a todos los que habían tenido relación con los españoles, a quienes no perdonaban, solicitando siempre venganza, sin olvidarla; y cuando la conseguían, su mayor triunfo lo manifestaban quemando sus poblaciones, quizás como un símbolo que borrase la existencia de la traición tangible. Por eso en cada alzamiento.., ningún español podía atravesar sus vecindades sin encontrar la muerte; los indios de servicio formaban parte del grupo enemigo, por lo tanto no existía diferencia entre ellos.”

Pasan los años y la lucha del pueblo Mapuche no cesa. La recuperación de tierras usurpadas por terratenientes, robadas a punta de astucia ente el comunero que no sabía leer, ni menos escribir. La autonomía interrumpida por parte del Estado invasor, de la mano con la religión, la que nos dice qué está bien y qué está mal. Esa que anula las ceremonias de mis abuelos, por ser paganas, cuando lo más bello es crecer, recordar y vivir nuestra esencia, nuestras raíces.
