As a collective, Amor y Rabia has wanted to address the theme of Indigenous Autonomy, because we understand that in this time, as in other eras of history, it is the best model for organizing a movement of resistance and struggle that includes not only indigenous people, but also everyone who is convinced of the need to live in a different world. read full story / add a comment

textPalestine-Israel, The first serious crack in the Israeli Zionist ruling elite* 16:55 Thu 28 Jan by Ilan S. 0 comments

It is hard to assess what is the part of the joint struggle and the B.D.S. in the serious crack in the Israeli elite. It was expressed by the leader of biggest opposition party - The Zionist List which suggested a partial agreement of withdrawal (even from part of the expanded Jerusalem). Since 1967 war, all the years the official position was that Israel will retreat from most of the occupied territories of the 1967 war if the Palestinian will agree to a peace pact that will include among other conditions the non return of the 1948 refugees. As it was clear that no Palestinian leadership will be able to do that it was clear to all that the monolithic consensus of the Zionist parties is to continue the occupation for ever. It is not surprising that even the leader of the radical leftist Zionist party Merets oppose this radical suggestion for withdrawal with out the (non achievable) final peace pact.

The bad news are that the overwhelming majority of the Israelis support it - including the centrists and even the Zionist left (who claim they want "two states" solution but with impossible pre conditions). The good news are that the imperial powers whose support to the status qua are gradually yielding to public opinions pressure of their citizens who do not agree with the Israeli apartheid-transferor regime. The non armed joint struggle initiated wide attention and drew participants from all over the world with international movement dedicated to put end to the Israeli occupation. (A short video about two kids in Bil'in got in few days two million views.). The anarchists against the wall and other like minded among the palestinians and abroad still struggle for the end of the Zionist settler colonialist/transferor project and not just for the end of 1967 occupation.

maticatrileo.jpg imageMarcha en Santiago de Chile: 8 años sin Matías Catrileo 04:30 Thu 07 Jan by Salvador Oskita y Nahuel Valenzuela 0 comments

Una nueva marcha se convocó para ayer, martes 5 de enero, con la intención de conmemorar un nuevo aniversario del asesinato del weichafe Matías Catrileo perpetrado por Carabineros de Chile; el autor material, Walter Ramírez Espinoza, recibió una pena irrisoria amparado por la “institución” y el Estado. En esta oportunidad el punto de encuentro fue en pleno centro de Santiago, en la intersección de Alameda con Ahumada a las 19:30 horas. Así, comenzaron a llegar diversas organizaciones sociales y políticas afines a la causa mapuche además de lamngen y peñi, reuniéndose en el lugar más de 500 personas, quienes portaban lienzos alusivos a las reivindicaciones mapuche y con consignas en homenaje al weichafe caído.

The Israeli authorities admit it have no solution or a strategy to stop or even restrict the third "unorganized" mainly individualist and of youth. The mass arrest of hundreds of under age children do not seems to have any effect. The transfer efforts do not stop, and even increase in the Jordan valley, area C, Jerusalem, and even within the 1948 borders. The controversy in the Israeli media is mainly about the admitting it is already one state and about initiating a better Bantustan order before international pressure will force a more substantial retreat from 1967 expansion. The B.D.S. media news are usually restricted only to dramatic additions in it. The Nebi Saleh community is in the focus of the efforts to stop the joint struggle and its Friday demos. In spite of it, the regular Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Ma'asarah, Qaddum, Sheikh Jarrah, West of Hebron Hills are accompanied from time to time by other communities.

textPal-Isra, The one state the joint struggle try to change*. 14:08 Mon 30 Nov by Ilan S. 0 comments

You struggle when you have hope for a developing change. You struggle when you refuse to accept the present as the only possible future. You struggle even when the hope is low just to keep your dignity from evaporating. And there are people their rage is so strong that no reasoning can hold them back. Now, when the hope for a better common future evaporated, and the hope for a nice personal future is even lower, the anger of lot of youth is stronger than the preservation of life instinct... it is just waiting for a chancy trigger to pull another boy or girl and send them to a suicide mission. And the mighty Israeli state just start to admit that their brutality reached the wall it cannot overcome. The military elite already stated to reveal it in the open that the new emerging "individualist" Intifada cannot be stopped by force. For those who are not burnt out or desperate the non armed joint struggle is the only sane road. [Italiano]

textPale-Isra - The one state the "realist" Zionists strived for and the (joint) struggle*. 13:36 Sun 08 Nov by Ilan S. 0 comments

In the beginning of the British mandate of the both sides of the Jordan, when Palestine was divided by the UK into two entities - each on one side of the Jordan, the secular national socialists accepted it while the rightist opposed. They still have in their movement anthem: "two sides to the Jordan - this side and the other are ours too". After Israel grabbed 75% of the west bank of Palestine in 1948 war, the Zionist elite of all trends was urging and waiting for opportunity to enlarge its share. The 1956 war failed to supply it but the 1967 one gave Israel all the west bank (and some more like Sinai - which it had to give back). The efforts to transfer the Palestinian out was successful in 1948 war, was less successful in the 1967 war, and much less substantial later - in spite of the efforts. The fear of transfer which inhibited the urge to struggle - both within 1948 borders and the enlarged 1967 ones is gradually dwindling and the non armed popular struggle - though hesitant, is gradually collecting momentum.

textPalestine-Israel - The third Intifada is collecting momentum - The joint unarmed struggle continue* 00:38 Mon 12 Oct by Ilan S. 0 comments

The fiasco of the failed take over of the relatively independent Iraq and Syria, by US imperialism lead to the compromises with the independent Iran. Israel role of threat on Iran during the bargain gave israel increased freedom to suppress the Palestinians. The returning of Russia to the Syrian arena give Israel more rope and it use it to intensify the efforts to take over the area C lands of the west bank. The third intifada is a desperate response of the Palestinians who see that the end of occupation is removed to behind the horizon. The joint struggle continue not as a rising hope but as a stubborn Tsumud of not giving up. The intensifying attack of the Israeli state and its rightist agents ignited a lot of social and individual responses. The Israeli media and public is not in 100% support of the state activities.

textPalestine-Israel, The non armed social struggle increase in response to increase in Israeli assaults... 20:54 Mon 21 Sep by Ilan S. 0 comments

The Israeli state which failed in its year ago offensive on the Hamas in Gaza, suffer also from its diminishing bargain power in the international arena, manipulate the internal discomfort of public opinions by increasing the encroachment on Palestinian spaces - both in the 1967 occupied west bank and within the 1948 borders. The diminishing in the support of the Israeli elite to the prime minister Netaniahu and his group push him to increase his political gambling that can crash him in the first big loss. His failure to pass his Gas scheme and the civil case in court in which his wife is grilled, may be the first signs of his approaching doom. In spite the efforts to lower the social pressure in the west bank by increasing the employment of west-bakers within Israel the popular resistance increase both in the occupied Jerusalem and in the west bank.

No one could predict that the joint camp in Masha 12 years ago of Israeli and Palestinian activists will ignite a wide movement of a joint non armed struggle which the Israeli occupying system will fail to extinguish. The thousands of activities and the tens of thousands of participates were not expected. Many small victories and the international B.D.S. warm the hearts of the not too many who persist in the joint struggle in spite of the mourning of those killed, empathy with the injured and solidarity with those arrested. The strong bond of partnership between the Palestinian activists and the Israeli Anarchists Against the Wall initiative was surprising. Disappointing but not surprising is the way the people of the Israeli anarchist scene refrained from adopting the initiative as the main recruiting mission. Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Ma'asara, Nebi Saleh, and Qaddum are still holding high the banner. [Italiano]

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.

Desde aquel 1492, el sol se empañó pero no se apagó, los pueblos indígenas y nosotras (trabajadoras, estudiantes, profesoras, campesinas, entre otras) seguimos en lucha y resistencia sin menguar la perseverancia. Estas tierras son de aquellas personas habitantes de esta masa continental mucho antes de la mal llamada “conquista”. Son sus habitantes legítimas mucho antes de las fronteras y banderas.

Con preocupación hemos visto como la policía nacional ha venido arremetiendo indiscriminadamente contra los pueblos indígenas que habitan las tierras del Cauca. 2 muertos y más de 50 heridos ha sido la respuesta del gobierno a las justas demandas de las comunidades ancestrales quienes han venido ocupando los predios que históricamente les han sido usurpados por las multinacionales y los terratenientes con ayuda de las leyes burguesas y los grupos paramilitares.

The movement against Aboriginal deaths in custody is growing. It is growing because the deaths just keep happening, and that’s criminal. We're not just talking about deaths from natural causes. Many of these deaths are far from natural.
