mashriq / arabia / iraq / imperialism / war / press release Sunday October 19, 2014 05:36 byAnarchist Organisations and Militants   image 1 image
For some years now the Kurdish movement has been moving in the direction of libertarian ideas. While not an anarchist movement, this move is a sign that anarchist ideas of freedom and equality through solidarity, our ideas of horizontality and radical direct democracy and our radical critique against the State are not only valid and strong, but are also necessary for movements in order to break away from the authoritarian legacy within the left. It is our duty to express our solidarity with Rojava and the Kurdish movement, because they represent hope in this region and because they are the oppressed fighting the oppressors. Real struggles are never perfect but they carry diverse degrees of potential to being about a free society. Expressing our solidarity with the revolutionary movement in Rojava means we understand our role is to continue developing the core tenets of our ideas in order to inspire revolutions and revolutionaries all over the world. - Anarkismo Editorial Group read full story / add a comment
mashriq / arabia / iraq / imperialism / war / opinion / analysis Sunday October 19, 2014 05:30 byKB
Anarcho-syndicalists should should hold no illusions about the Rojava Revolution. Since the turn of the millenium there have been reports of a libertarian municipalist turn in the Kurdish national liberation struggle inspired by Murray Bookchin. This change in politics has been lead by jailed founder and ideological leader Abdullah Öcalan of the Kurdish Workers Party (PKK) who discovered Bookchin while in prison. The PKK a former Maoist/Stalinist organization had turned to ethnic nationalism after the fall of the Soviet Union and discreditation of “really existing socialism” and so such a turn has been welcomed by many on the revolutionary left. However such processes of political transformation do not automatically translate to full adoption within a populace nevermind their official representation in leading parties. read full story / add a comment

mashriq / arabia / iraq / indigenous struggles / news report Monday October 13, 2014 05:15 byIlan S.
A physical confrontation between between the Israeli armed forces (and settlers) and a joint crowd of Israeli Jews and Palestinian activists in the 1967 occupied territories is so common that people do not sense its unique nature. In addition to PR disaster for the Zionist transfer project it also forced Israel to mostly exclude shooting with life ammunition fire to kill non armed Palestinian demonstrators whenever Israelis might participate. In addition to the usual locations of joint struggles, addition places Palestinians start protests we learn of from the media. The Israeli media to which the agreement with the Hamas about the end of the rocketing was not revealed, come again and again with facts and generals opinions which can only be explained as rationalization to changes forced on Israel in the agreement. read full story / add a comment

La más reciente ofensiva israelí en contra del pueblo palestino, que duró casi dos meses, es quizás una de las acciones más letales en la larga historia de violencias que acumula la entidad sionista sobre su lomo. Más de 2.000 muertos, al menos una cuarta parte de ellos menores de edad, masacrados con bombas, metralla y fósforo blanco que han sido arrojados de manera deliberada sobre la población civil inerme en la Franja de Gaza, la cual se refugió en hospitales, escuelas, oficinas de la ONU, mientras muchos otros han sido destrozados durmiendo en sus propios hogares. Sin embargo, aparte de estas cobardes atrocidades, Israel se ha demostrado impotente en sus dos objetivos centrales: no ha podido destruir la red de túneles mediante los cuales los palestinos en Gaza pueden burlar a duras penas el bloqueo absoluto y medieval impuesto; tampoco ha podido desbaratar la capacidad militar de la resistencia palestina. read full story / add a comment

As the Israeli pretending of striving for any kind of peace was exposed, the transfer efforts are intensified. It seems the hazards taking and gambling of Israel on the continuation of the occupation is increasing.

In Kurdistan, people are fighting against ISIS, “the procreated violence” given birth by capitalism and the states that start wars for their own benefits. ISIS, subcontractor of the states that pursue income strategies on the region, is attacking people while yelling “islamic state!” and “holy war, jihad!”. People are suffering from hunger and thirst, getting ill, getting injured; migrating ad dying. They are still fighting in that struggle for existence. People are fighting not for the schemes and strategies around meeting tables, not for income, but for their freedom.

imageO que nós pensamos sobre a atual crise no Iraque? Aug 17 0 comments

A crise do Iraque já se arrasta há décadas. Tanto o regime Saddam Hussein tanto quanto sob a atual "democracia", desde a invasão de 2003, não há liberdade, justiça social, igualdade e há poucas perspectivas para aqueles que são independentes aos partidos políticos no poder. Além da brutalidade e discriminação contra as mulheres e as minorias, um grande abismo foi criado entre os ricos e os pobres, fazendo com que os pobres ficassem cada vez mais pobres e os ricos mais ricos.

imageQue pensons nous de la crise actuelle en Irak ? Aug 05 Forum anarchiste du Kurdistan 0 comments

La crise irakienne est continue depuis des décennies, tant sous le régime de Saddam Hussein que sous le « régime démocratique actuel » depuis l'invasion de 2003. Il n'y avait ni de liberté, ni de justice sociale, ni d'égalité et peu de perspectives pour celles et ceux qui étaient indépendant des partis politiques au pouvoir. En plus de la brutalité existante et la discrimination contre les femmes et les genTEs ordinaires, un très grand fossé a été creusé entre les riches et les pauvres, rendant les pauvres de plus en plus pauvres et les riches de plus en plus riches.
