mashriq / arabia / iraq / indigenous struggles / news report Monday November 30, 2015 15:08 by Ilan S.
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] read full story / add a comment
mashriq / arabia / iraq / indigenous struggles / news report Sunday November 08, 2015 14:36 by Ilan S.
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. read full story / add a comment

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.

Palestine-Israel, The non armed social struggle increase in response to increase in Israeli assaults*.

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.

Palestine-Israel, The joint non armed struggle lost its excitement of novelty but it earned its replacement in the Tsumud (persistence)*
mashriq / arabia / iraq / indigenous struggles / news report Monday August 17, 2015 17:22 by Ilan S.
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] read full story / add a comment
Palestine-Israel, The world in turmoil; the old world order will never be the same again; and the joint struggle contributed to the processes that tip the scales*.
On 1st of January 1994 in Chiapas the masses held high the flag of rebellion just after the world capitalist celebrated their triumph on the revolutions of the 20th century and promoted their neo-liberal globalization of the world. But the struggle continued in entirely new mode. The amazing development in Rojava in which the main imperial powers find themselves giving aerial support to the anti authoritarian anti capitalists Kurds of Syria is like a flock of sparrows that mark that the spring is already hear. As part of the imminent change is the panic of the Israeli Zionist ruling elite from the faster advance of the B.D.S.... We cannot measure the contribution of each act of struggle to the change, but it seems that the many thousands of international activists who participated with us in the non armed joint struggle against the separation fence, the settlers, and occupation have a significant share.

Palestine-Israel, The B.D.S. collect momentum and the fear of its future development frighten the Israeli elite*
The damage to the Israeli economy seems to be yet only marginal... but the margin expand now faster. Some of the firm already yield to the pressure targeted at areas in the settlements of the 1967 occupation and regroup back to the Israeli areas of 1948, in spite of the loss in government bribes and cheaper work force. The Israeli media is full with warning and even beginning of fear mongering. The connection between the joint struggle in the demos and the B.D.S. and the development of the boycott is acknowledged. Mean time the efforts to transfer of the Palestinians from key areas - the Bedouins in the south of the 1948 areas and in area C of the 1967 occupation intensify, as if they know that the opportunities to do it will end soon. Mean time, the non armed Friday demos are suppressed inconsistently with special treatment to Qadum. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Cuatro son los peñi que desde el 23 de marzo hasta el día de hoy están sacrificando sus cuerpos, teniendo clara convicción de que este Estado fascista sólo los tomará en cuenta cuando la situación roce momentos de suspiros con agonía y dolor. Porque, qué son 30 ó 40 días sin consumo de alimentos, nada. No les interesa. Todas las autoridades (comunal, regional y nacional) están al tanto de la huelga de hambre y han dado vuelta sus caras con indiferencia absoluta ante el sacrificio y demandas de nuestros hermanos. Misma indiferencia con la que ven la lucha del mapuche en la recuperación de sus tierras, sus tierras por derecho. read full story / add a comment

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. read full story / add a comment

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. read full story / add a comment
Comunicado UPN en apoyo a los pueblos indígenas del Cauca y en contra de la persecución al movimiento social

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. read full story / add a comment
Palestine-Israel, 10 years of the joint struggle in Bil'in against the settlers, the separation fence/wall, and occupation*
mashriq / arabia / iraq / indigenous struggles / news report Sunday February 15, 2015 21:49 by Ilan S.
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.

Palestine-Israel, February 20th - Ten years of struggle in Bil'in - inspiration to organized popular non armed struggle
mashriq / arabia / iraq / indigenous struggles / news report Monday February 02, 2015 18:54 by Ilan S.
The activists of Bil'in were not the first to join the popular unarmed struggle against the separation fence, occupation, and settlers encroachment. However, the Bil'in activists together with the anarchists against the wall were the first to start a persistent struggle with a non stop week after week of activities. 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. Ni'ilin, Ma'asare, Beit Umar for few years... and later villages that struggle against the the encroachment of settlers and occupation blocks - Nabi Saleh and Qaddum. Higher levels of organization and activities of the coordination comity of the local popular struggle comity and just lately a coordination comity of a group of villages in the south of the occupied west bank.

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.

The Israel main daily Yedioth Ahronoth revealed in the morning of 13-1-15 a classified document of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs: "Worsening European measures against Israel... fear that the US stop using its veto power in the Security Council... a particularly gloomy forecast for 2015. It shows how far the political tsunami could reach, and in some ways has already begun". It seems the many thousands of international activists and dignitaries who participated in the joint struggle with the Israeli activists of the anarchists against the wall together with the Palestinian popular village comities were the catalysts that put the struggle on the media agenda again and again till the minimal mass already reached. First, the video clips invaded the main stream media, than Bil'in Habibti documentary and the pick was expressed in the 5 broken cameras award... and like a snow ball rolling down the mountain it is unstoppable now.

Un anarchiste kurde de Grande-Bretagne, Zaher Baher, a voyagé au Kurdistan syrien (Rojava) en mai 2014. Il en a tiré un long et rare témoignage, dont certains passages assez acritiques incitent à la prudence. Il en ressort l’impression d’une révolution non pas sociale, mais au moins démocratique, ce qui constitue déjà un pas de géant après quarante années de dictature policière. Nous en publions deux extraits. read full story / add a comment

La gauche kurde a beaucoup évolué depuis dix ans. Si le PKK (officiellement rebaptisé Kongra-Gel en 2003) reste son centre de gravité, avec une structure autoritaire, des tendances autogestionnaires ont vu le jour, notamment dans ses organisations satellites. Une situation ambivalente mais riche de potentialités. read full story / add a comment

Depuis l’été, son rôle de rempart face aux atrocités djihadistes a placé la gauche kurde sous les feux de la rampe. Ce que l’on savait moins jusque-là, c’est que dans les zones qu’elle contrôle en Syrie, elle a favorisé l’essor d’une contre-société sur des bases laïques, sociales et démocratiques. Une situation exceptionnelle, qui appelle un soutien international. read full story / add a comment
mashriq / arabia / iraq / indigenous struggles / news report Sunday October 26, 2014 02:19 by Ilan S.
Throughout the years Israel has tried to neutralize the pressure of more enlightened people by hiding its brute racism and murderous activities by recruiting the memory of the Holocaust as justification for all its heinous acts when revealed. However, as the masquerade has been exposed in recent years and more and more are disillusioned from the "Zionist dream", the restraints are being loosened fast. The rightists preach their extreme racist ideology in the open. The "paramilitarist" settlers get a freer hand. The transfer of Palestinians both within the 1948 borders and these occupied in 1967 is being done in the open. Though it is still restricted mainly to the Israeli area of the Bedouins in the south and the C agricultural regions of the 1967 borders, the "gloves" have been removed. In the same new mode, repression of the non-armed popular struggles has intensified in the last few weeks and we cannot guess what the limit of the new repression mode will be - if at all.
