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. read full story / add a comment

Hemos sido hijas de esta nueva etapa histórica para los pueblos en lucha, que inicia con el quiebre de la política tradicional imperialista en medio oriente y el insostenible programa económico de austeridad en lo que se ha denominado “occidente”. Respectivamente, la primavera árabe y los movimientos de indignadxs figuraron en las primeras planas de los grandes medios de comunicaciones, que con grandes matices, ilustran una nueva era para los movimientos sociales que retoman las históricas banderas de antiimperialismo, anticapitalismo y libertad completa para quienes tienen que sufrir dictaduras militares, civiles y comerciales. read full story / add a comment

E' dura per molti attivisti, quando il significato reale della lotta non si concretizza in conquiste tangibili, ma in una lotta globale a livello mondiale. Questa settimana, il livello globale e quello della concretezza si sono combinati nella lotta contro la distruzione del villaggio di Susiya che ha avuto eco e sostegno a livello internazionale, costringendo Israele a rinviare se non a cancellare la demolizione del villaggio. Alle pressioni delle potenze imperiali su Israele si è aggiunto l'avvertimento della UE sull'approssimarsi di sanzioni contro il sistema bancario israeliano per il suo sostegno ai progetti dei coloni nella Cisgiordania occupata.

Η Rojava γίνεται γρήγορα ένα κέντρο εμπορίου και παραγωγής, παρά τις ελλείψεις και τα δεινά που προκαλούνται από το συνεχιζόμενο πόλεμο. Η οικονομική ανάπτυξη σημειώνεται κατά μήκος των γραμμών που ορίζονται από την ηγεσία του Κουρδικού Κινήματος Ελευθερίας, και η τρέχουσα οικονομική ανάπτυξη καθοδηγείται από τις πρόσφατα οικοδομημένες κοινότητες, επιτροπές, συνδικάτα και πολιτικές οργάνωσεις, ως μέρος του δημοκρατικού προτύπου της οικονομίας. read full story / add a comment

In my opinion the best attitude towards Rojava is “supportive and being critical” at the same time. Criticizing it alone and keeping distance from it does not benefit our current anarchist movement. This attitude again shows incapability of recognizing the reality of the movement, and would bring the blame of history over us. Meanwhile supporting it without criticizing its negative sides again shows that we do not see this movement realistically. Having this attitude, once the movement fails to meet our demands, we will be very disappointed and keep ourselves a far distance from any movement in the future. read full story / add a comment

It is hard for many activists when the real meaning of the struggle are not concrete achievable gains, but a global worldwide struggle. This week, the concrete and the global merged when the struggle against the destruction of Susiya village recruited international support and forced Israel to delay or even cancel the demolition of the village. Pressure from the imperial powers on Israel was joined by European warning about approaching sanctions against the Israeli banking system for its involvement in the settlers' projects in the occupied West Bank. It seems the erosion of Israeli immunity from paying for its war crimes is collecting momentum. The Israeli media is full of news about B.D.S. - the joint struggle in which thousands of international activists participate, contributing a lot. The heroic Bil'in, Ni'lin, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, Ma'sara, and Sheikh Jarrah keep the weekly flame from extinguishing. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

L'1 gennaio del 1994 in Chiapas le masse innalzarono la bandiera della ribellione giusto dopo che il mondo capitalista aveva celebrato il suo trionfo sulle rivoluzioni del 20° secolo e si accingeva a lanciare la globalizzazione neoliberista a livello mondiale. Ma la lotta è proseguita con nuove modalità. I sorprendenti sviluppi nella Rojava, in cui le principali potenze imperialiste si trovano a dare sostegno aereo ai Curdi antiautoritari ed anticapitalisti di Siria, sono come uno stormo di passeri che segnano l'arrivo della primavera. In questo imminente cambiamento, si sviluppa il panico delle classi dirigenti sioniste israeliane di fronte alla veloce avanzata della campagna B.D.S.... Non possiamo misurare il contributo di ciascuna lotta al cambiamento, ma sembra che una quota importante spetti alle migliaia di attivisti internazionali che hanno condiviso con noi la lotta unitaria non-armata contro il muro della separazione, contro gli insediamenti e contro l'occupazione.

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.

I danni della campagna BDS sull'economia israeliana sembrano essere ancora marginali... ma questi margini si stanno allargando velocemente. Già alcune imprese sottoposte a pressione perché operanti nelle aree degli insediamenti dell'occupazione del 1967, si stanno ritirando nei territori israeliani del 1948, pur rinunciando così agli aiuti governativi e ad una manodopera a minor costo. I media israeliani si riempiono di avvertimenti e dei timori dei commercianti. Ormai è evidente la connessione tra la lotta unitaria nelle manifestazioni e la campagna BDS con lo sviluppo dei boicottaggio. [English] read full story / add a comment

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

Le azioni unitarie non-violente - principalmente alcune manifestazioni del venerdì - non sono così impegnative per le forze armate israeliane. Tuttavia, l'attenzione dei media su queste lotte ed ancor di più la partecipazione ad esse di attivisti internazionali che poi rilanciano nei loro paesi la lotta internazionale, sono un fattore reale di preoccupazione per Israele. I controlli ai confini, che riuscivano ad impedire l'ingresso degli attivisti, non sono più tanto efficaci. La classe dirigente israeliana non è ancora nel panico, ma di recente appare molto preoccupata. [English] read full story / add a comment

First of all, I should mention a couple of issues in Kurdistan of Turkey (Bakur) that are strongly connected to the subject. Between 08/05 and 22/05/15 I visited a number of big towns in Bakur, including: Amed (Diyarbakir), Van, Colemerge (Hakari) and Gavar. Later I returned to Suruc and was hoping to cross the border to Kobane.
My main purpose for visiting there were three important points: first: understanding the similarity and differences between the Democratic Self Administration (DSA) in Bakur and Rojava. Second: Reconstruction of Kobane, and third the type of economy that Rojava can have in the future. Although the friends in Peoples ‘ Democratic Party (HDP) , other organisation and the Working Committees of Rojava in Amed and Suruc tried hard to arrange my trip to Kobane but it did not happen.

La vittoria elettorale che doveva essere la risposta di Netanyahu alla rivolta in seno alla classe dirigente - gravida di minacce di ridimensionamento verso il suo giornale - si è rivelata una sconfitta parziale. Netanyahu dipende ora dall'appoggio del partito del centro-destra e dai partiti ortodossi e sta cercando disperatamente di riconquistare il controllo della situazione. La montante pressione su Israele minaccia di accelerare rapidamente. Ve ne sono le avvisaglie nella minaccia di espellere Israele dalla FIFA e nell'intervento della Corte dell'Aja. E' prossima l'iniziativa della Francia all'interno del consiglio di sicurezza dell'ONU. [English] read full story / add a comment

The non armed joint actions - mainly few Friday demos, do not cause the Israeli armed forces much load. However, the focusing of the media on these, and more so the international activist participating in them who enhance the international struggle when they return home, really worry the Israeli authorities. Their borders screening which succeed to prevent the entry of activists is not much effective. The Israeli ruling elite is not in panic yet, but lately they worry a lot. The president of Israel warn that the development of the B.D.S. must cause a real concern. The threat of the expulsion from the FIFA cause Israel to make concession to prevent the voting and even agreed to a special monitoring comity. The subject of the B.D.S. is more and more in the media and many of the speaker admit their fear from its intensifying. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

La crescente pressione operata dalla campagna B.D.S. non solo preoccupa la classe dirigente israeliana, ma ne ha già provocato una spaccatura. Che si era manifestata nelle dimissioni del governo di Netaniahu e nell'indizione di nuove elezioni. L'esito è stato persino peggiore per lui. Ha perso la maggioranza all'interno della destra. Il suo 61% (contro il 59%) è stato ottenuto solo coalizzandosi con il centro-destra di Kakhlon che aveva già bloccato le mosse della destra tradizionale e di alcune tendenze di neoliberismo radicale. Un nuovo equilibrio di potere all'interno della classe dirigente israeliana potrebbe portare nel futuro immediato ad una coalizione con il partito di pseudo-sinistra della lista sionista o addirittura ad una diversa coalizione senza Netaniahu o persino senza il partito Licud. In questo contesto proseguono gli sgomberi di palestinesi - sia in Israele che in Cisgiordania. [English] read full story / add a comment

The election which was a response to rebellion in the elite - threatening to restrict his daily newspaper - resulted in a partial defeat. He is dependant now on the support of the center-right party and the orthodox parties,and now he is trying desperately to regain control. The mounting pressure on Israel threatens to take a fast escalation. It is already expressed in the threat to expel Israel from FIFA and of intervention of the Hague Court. The French initiative in the UN security council is approaching. The escalation in transfer actions - both within Israel and the West Bank is an effort to recruit at least the support of orthodox parties and the extreme right. In spite of harsher efforts to repress the Palestinian struggle - both in occupied east Jerusalem and the popular non-armed struggle the struggle continues. The very optimistic activists already feel the approaching victory. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

Revolutions are seldom made in favourable circumstances.  Russia 1917 emerged from the mass slaughter of WWI and the disintegration of an economy under the pressure of the supply demands of that war.  Spain 1936 emerged from a well planned and executed fascist coup amongst a powerful military backed and armed by international fascism.  Schemas for revolution that depend on quiet times and plenty may well be doomed from the start. read full story / add a comment

The B.D.S. which intensify the pressure not only worry the Israeli elite - it already caused a split in it. The split expressed in the initiation of law against the Netaniahu daily caused him to dismantle his coalition and call for election. The result was even worse for him. He lost the majority of the hard core right. The 61 (versus 59) coalition was achieved only with Kakhlon center-right that already blocked the main rightist moves and some of the extreme neoliberal tendency. A new power balance in the Israeli elite may result with a near future coalition with the pseudo left party Zionist List or even entirely different coalition without Netaniahu or even without the Licud party. With this back ground, transfer of Palestinians intensify - both citizens of Israel and in the occupy west bank... And the repression and struggle continue in Bil'in, Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, Qadoom, Ma'asarah, Sheikh Jarrah, South Hebron Hills and sporadicly in other places.

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.

A medida que continúa la revolución de Rojava, la naturaleza de su economía ha sido muy discutida. Como he escrito anteriormente, Rojava aspira a una economía social basada en el sistema de cooperativas. En las últimas semanas, varias personas me han preguntado por las ideas de Murray Bookchin sobre la economía: ¿cuáles son los aspectos económicos del municipalismo libertario? He creado un resumen de su pensamiento, sobre la base de los recursos enumerados al final de este artículo. -Janet Biehl

imageDeclaración Internacional Libertaria de Solidaridad con la Resistencia Kurda Oct 22 0 comments

Desde algunos años, el movimiento kurdo se está acercando a las ideas libertarias. Aunque no se trata de un movimiento anarquista, este cambio muestra que las ideas anarquistas de libertad e igualdad a través de la solidaridad, nuestras ideas de horizontalidad y de democracia directa radical en contra del Estado no solo son validas y fuertes, sino que son también necesarias para que los movimientos sociales acaben con la herencia autoritaria de la izquierda. Expresar nuestra solidaridad con Rojava y el movimiento kurdo es nuestra responsabilidad, pues representan la esperanza en esta región y porque es una lucha de los oprimidos en contra de los opresores. Las verdaderas luchas no son nunca perfectas pero llevan a diversos potencialidades de construcción de una sociedad libre. Mientras expresamos nuestra solidaridad con el movimiento revolucionario en Rojava entendemos también que nuestro papel es seguir desarrollando los principios centrales de nuestras ideas para compartirlas con los y las revolucionari@s en el mundo. - Grupo editorial de Anarkismo.net [English]
