He also visited the Siyathemba settlement in Balfour where he, like a typical bullying ward councillor, berated angry residents for asking the questions that mattered. ... read full story / add a comment

Protea du Sud est l'un de ces « quartiers informels » (bidonville) qui n'a pas encore bénéficié au cours des 16 dernières années de la démocratie. À l'heure actuelle, les gens de Protea-sud vivent toujours sans aucun service (eau, électricité et sanitaires). Hier, la communauté qui vit dans des maisons à loyer modéré a décidé de débrancher l'électricité que les gens des habitations informelles avaient connecté dans leurs baraques en tôle. Ils sont allés dans le quartier pour débrancher et battre les gens qui avaient connecté l'électricité dans leurs baraques. En conséquence, deux personnes ont reçu des coups de feu et une est décédée sur place tandis que l'autre a été transportée d’urgence à l'hôpital. ... read full story / add a comment

Protea South is one of the informal settlements that has not yet benefited in the last 16 years of democracy. As it stands, people in Protea South are still living without services (water, electricity and toilets). Yesterday the community that lives in the bond houses decided to disconnect the electricity that the people from the informal settlement connected into their tin shacks. They went around disconnecting and beating people who connected the electricity within their shacks. As a result, two people were shot and one died on the spot while the other one was rushed to hospital. ... read full story / add a comment

There is speculation that the recent bombing of a bank in Canada might have been a false flag operation carried out by agent provocateurs to blame anarchists and give police a reason to further ramp up security. In many ways, the whole security operations for the G8/G20 summits are a sideshow designed to serve as a distraction. Any violence and mayhem before or during the meetings plays right into the globalists hands and will be used to justify a police state crackdown.

Em setembro de 2009, no entanto, alguns líderes foram atacados no assentamento Kennedy Road por um grupo armado que entoava lemas étnicos. A polícia se negou a ajudar o AbM e somente estava presente para desarmar a resistência espontânea à multidão. Pessoas morreram durante a tentativa de defesa contra o grupo e as casas de mais de trinta líderes da AbM foram destruídas e saqueadas depois que os dirigentes locais do partido que está no poder tomaram o controle do assentamento. Os dirigentes partidários, tanto na cidade como na província, atacaram o movimento com uma linguagem extremamente forte nos dias posteriores ao ataque, condenado-o por sua exigência perante o governo para que o mesmo declarasse inconstitucional a Lei de Assentamentos Precários e acusando-o de se opor ao desenvolvimento. Afirmou-se aos oficiais da polícia e do estado, bem como aos repórteres, que as ONGs estrangeiras financiavam o movimento com o objetivo de deter o desenvolvimento para que, deste modo, os africanos continuassem pobres e mantivessem seu acesso ao financiamento.

The old world order, in which US interests in the region East of the Mediterranean let Israel - a bastion of the US - continue with its Zionist settler colonialist in the 1967 occupied Palestine, has ended. Europe has started to advance its own interests, which are not in accord with the Israeli bastion. The independent steps of Europe are enhanced by its public opinion against Israeli colonialism to which the joint struggle in the West Bank contributes a lot. It was the approach of the imminent crisis that forced the Israeli Prime minister to call for elections, to save himself from the normally-timed election when the crisis would be the main agenda. The murder of the Palestinian minister of the popular struggles has focused attention on the ferment and rising of the popular non-armed struggles of which Israel is contemplating suppression with systematic use of live ammunition.

Lo Stato di Israele è stato costruito soprattutto dai socialisti nazionalisti che controllavano il 75% dell'economia nel 1949. A causa della dipendenza dalle potenze imperialiste i cosiddetti socialisti investirono soprattutto nella costruzione di una elite capital-sionista che perse il potere nel 1977. I conflitti di interesse all'interno della classe dirigente capital-sionista iniziarono a mutare l'equilibrio tra la piccola fazione di industriali favorevole all'espulsione dei palestinesi e la fazione capitalista integrata nella globalizzazione neoliberista che voleva sfruttare i palestinesi ed i lavoratori dei paesi vicini.

Israel was built mainly by the national socialists who owned 75% of the economy in 1949. Due to dependence on the imperial powers the so-called socialist elite invested a lot in building the Zionist-capitalist elite to which it lost power in 1977. Conflicts of interest within the Zionist-capitalist elite started to change the balance between the small tycoons section that supported the Zionist wish to transfer the Palestinians out and the capitalist section that integrated in the neo-liberal globalization who wish to exploit the Palestinians and the workers of neighboring countries. The restructuring of power relations in global capitalism after the last crisis had its Israeli expression in the near-bankruptcy of the tycoon elite and the present collapse of the government coalition. The economic damage which has already resulted from the B.D.S. campaign which is enhanced by the joint struggle seems to be hastening a shift in the balance of powers.

textPalestina-Israele - la lotta unitaria in tempi turbolenti 15:41 Fri 14 Nov by Ilan S. 0 comments

La lotta popolare non-armata delle comunità palestinesi, a cui aderiscono gli Anarchici Contro il Muro ed altri, non è una lotta di "liberazione nazionale" o di "autodeterminazione" della nazione palestinese. E' invece la lotta del popolo palestinese, la cui stragrande maggioranza è composta di lavoratori, contro la minaccia di sgomberi e contro lo sfruttamento imposto dal progetto coloniale sionista di Israele. Nessuno di coloro i quali partecipano alle lotte e che non stanno dentro l'elite palestinese nutre illusioni sull'elite palestinese e sullo Stato che governeranno e gestiranno dopo la fine dell'occupazione.

textPalestine-Israel - the joint struggle in turbulent times.* 02:03 Tue 11 Nov by Ilan S. 0 comments

The popular unarmed struggle of Palestinian communities joined by the Israeli Anarchists Against the Wall and others is not a struggle for the "national liberation" or "self determination" of the Palestinian nation. It is the struggle of Palestinian people, of which the overwhelming majority are working people, against the threat of transfer and the suppression and exploitation by the Israeli Zionist settler colonialist project. None of those involved in the struggle who are not in the Palestinian elite have illusions about the Palestinian elite and the state they will rule and manage after the end of the occupation. None of those involved in the struggle believe that the end of the direct occupation will solve the 1948 Nakba and the refugee problems. However, they still prefer the end of the occupation and independence from Israel, over direct Israeli rule, as it will not be an agent of transfer or of such brutal suppression and exploitation.

textPalestina-Israele, la lotta unitaria mette a nudo la vera natura di Israele 17:22 Fri 07 Nov by Ilan S. 0 comments

Per anni Israele ha cercato di neutralizzare la pressione delle persone più illuminate nascondendo il suo brutale razzismo e le sue attività omicide ricorrendo alla memoria dell'Olocausto quale giustificazione per tutti i suoi atti efferati man mano che venivano rivelati. Tuttavia, questa mascherata durata anni ha portato ad una crescente disillusione verso il "sogno sionista" e ad un veloce allentamento dei vincoli precedenti. La destra predica apertamente la sua ideologia razzista estremista. I coloni "paramilitari" sono a ruota libera. [English]

textPalestina Israele, la lotta unitaria compie 11 anni e non si ferma 16:28 Thu 16 Oct by Ilan S. 0 comments

Gli scontri tra le forze armate israeliane (insieme ai coloni) ed una folla unita composta da attivisti ebrei israeliani e palestinesi all'interno dei territori occupati nel 1967 è una cosa talmente frequente che la gente non riesce a coglierne l'unicità. Il disastro mediatico del progetto sionista di sgomberi ha costretto Israele a dover escludere che si potessero usare munizioni vere per uccidere manifestanti palestinesi disarmati soprattutto in caso di presenza di cittadini israeliani.

textPalestina-Israele, la lotta unitaria e la crudele politica israeliana degli sgomberi 14:10 Fri 03 Oct by Ilan S. 0 comments

Araqeeb (villaggio dei Beduini dal 1948), Bil'in, Dahams (Ramla nel 1948), Gerusalemme est (occupata nel 1967, in particolare i quartieri di Sheikh Jarrah e Shuafat, ed i Beduini nella regione) Ma'sarah, Nabi Saleh, Ni'ilin, Qaddum, le colline a sud di Hebron, ecco le principali località delle lotte unitarie a cui hanno partecipato gli Anarchici Contro il Muro. Mentre Israele finge di darsi da fare per una pace qualsiasi, non smette però di intensificare gli sgomberi con un azzardo crescente. Il governo israeliano conta sull'appoggio della lobby filo-israeliana della destra statunitense e sull'importanza strategica di Israele in tempi turbolenti nonostante la montante pressione internazionale... sebbene le autorità israeliane e l'opinione pubblica si mostrino preoccupate delle pressioni economiche e politiche.

Nonostante il fallimento dell'ultimo attacco israeliano alla striscia di Gaza, non si fermano gli sforzi di Israele per sgomberare i palestinesi. L'affondamento di una nave di rifugiati con 450 persone a bordo principalmente di Gaza dimostra il parziale successo di Israele in questa politica di sgomberi che non si è mai fermata fin dal 1948. L'assedio di Gaza è tutt'uno con la pressione sui palestinesi, sia quelli dentro i confini del 1948 che del 1967. Pur avendo costretto ad andarsene grandi masse di palestinesi durante le guerre del 1948 e del 1967, Israele ha proseguito questa sua politica con tutti i mezzi possibili. [English]

The Liberal Government brought down a budget in May that outraged workers across Australia. It is a massive attack on the working class across the board, with cuts to pensions, Medicare, higher education, State funding for health and education, unemployment benefits and much more. There is hardly a sector of the working class that won’t be dramatically affected.

Rising inflation means increases in food and petrol prices. Inflation is a global problem, driven partly by conglomerates maximising their profits at the expense of ordinary people. The state plays its role, continually raising prices for services.

The pressure of capitalism has impacted on our lives. It has caused clashes within the working classes, resulting in discrimination and prejudice. Ruling class elites – the political and economic elite – benefit from these struggles between people who compete for scraps from their tables.

O debate a respeito do cenário pós-eleitoral, ao contrário do que muitos esperavam, não se atenuou. Aumenta a intensidade dos protestos por direita, e, ao mesmo tempo, abre-se todo um leque de possibilidades para colocar o governo reeleito contra a parede, diminuindo ainda mais sua estreita margem de manobra. Podemos identificar quatro possibilidades dentro do cenário complexo onde se realizam arenas simultâneas de embate.

La resistenza a Kobane che dura da oltre 45 giorni ha spostato l'attenzione dei rivoluzionari di tutto il mondo sulla Rojava. Grazie al lavoro svolto da Azione Rivoluzionaria Anarchica (DAF, Turchia, ndt), i compagni anarchici di varie parti del mondo hanno inviato messaggi di solidarietà alla resistenza di Kobane (1). Questa posizione internazionalista è di grande importanza per il popolo che resiste a Kobane. Tuttavia, se non analizziamo cosa sta accadendo veramente e se invece facciamo del romanticismo, i nostri sogni potrebbero essere delusi in un breve lasso di tempo. [English]

As a result of the work carried out by Revolutionary Anarchist Action (DAF), anarchist comrades from many parts of the world have sent messages of solidarity to the Kobane resistance.(1) This internationalist stance without a doubt carries great importance for the people resisting in Kobane. However if we do not analyze what is happening in all its truth and if we romanticize instead, our dreams will turn to disappointment in short order.

Η εκλογική διαδικασία υποτίθεται πως είναι το μέσο που εκφράζεται η λαϊκή θέληση. Δεν υπάρχει όμως πιο ουσιαστική συμμετοχή στα κοινά, απο τα κύτταρα που δημιουργεί η κοινωνία για να αντισταθεί στους δυνάστες της. Αν τα συνδικάτα δεν ήταν δεξαμενές ψηφοφόρων, αν συνελεύσεις ζωντανεύαν τους χώρους δουλειάς, τις γειτονιές, τα σχολεία και τα πανεπιστήμια τότε ίσως οι εκλογές να μην είχαν τέτοιο κοινωνικό αντίκτυπο.
