Only a few months after the appointment of the new government of Ulises Ruiz Ortiz in the south western state of Oaxaca, there has been deterioration in the social and political situation and in particular regarding the political rights of Indigenous peoples. One of the Indigenous organizations suffering the most repression in all of Mexico and particularly in Oaxaca is the Popular Indigenous Council of Oaxaca- Ricardo Flores Magón (CIPO-RFM) 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

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

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

Dopo tanti anni è dura abituarsi alla sostituzione dei lacrimogeni e dei proiettili con la minaccia di essere arrestati se uno supera una certa linea immaginaria. Per molti anni ci siamo preoccupati di quando sarebbe arrivato il giorno in cui chi prende le decisioni nello Stato di Israele avrebbe ridotto al minimo e persino interrotto la dura repressione delle manifestazioni unitarie settimanali contro l'occupazione, contro i coloni e contro il muro della separazione. Il 27-5-16 a Bil'in fu la prima volta in cui le forze di stato non spararono su una manifestazione. Ce ne vollero altre dodici così perchè capissimo che eravamo davanti ad un vero cambiamento di strategia. Lo scorso venerdì loro ci hanno persino "invitato" a tornare a manifestare nell'area del nuovo muro della separazione - proibita a tutti noi da almeno un anno. Pare che i tanti milioni investiti nella lotta per contrastare la campagna B.D.S. (boicottaggio, disinvestimento, sanzioni contro le merci israeliana, ndr) siano serviti ad assumere dei managers più intelligenti in grado di costringere l'esercito a ingoiare il proprio orgoglio ed a smettere di maltrattare le manifestazioni del venerdì e gli attivisti internazionali che
vi prendono parte.

After so many years it is hard to get used to the replacement of tear gas and bullets with threat of arrests if we cross an imaginary line. For many years we worried about the day when the Israeli state decision makers will minimise or even stop the the harsh repression of the weekly joint demonstrations against the occupation, the settlers and the separation wall. On 27-5-16 was the first demo in Bil'in the state forces did not shoot us. It took a dozen such non shootings to realize it is a real strategic shift. The last Friday they even "invited" us to return the demo to the area near the new separation wall - forbidden for us for about a year. It seems the multi millions invested in the struggle against the B.D.S. recruited a more intelligent managers who was able to force the army to swallow their pride and stop harassing the Friday demos and the international activists participating in them.

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.

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...

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.”

"...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.”
