On January 28, little more than a week after Israel concluded its brutal military campaign against the Gaza Strip, James Kirchick published the latest installment (www.advocate.com/exclusive_detail_ektid71844.asp) in his growing corpus of articles about tolerant, gay-friendly Israel and homophobic, "Islamofascist" Palestine. Although Kirchick has published essentially the same article under different titles -- "Palestine and Gay Rights" (www.advocate.com/exclusive_detail_ektid33587.asp) and "Palestinian Anti-Gay Atrocities Need Attention" (www.innewsweekly.com/innews/?class_code=Op&article_code=783) -- and although he regurgitates the same flimsy, unsupported arguments in all of these articles, we do not write to question his intellectual prowess or journalistic qualifications. In fact, Kirchick’s diatribe against Palestinians and the "radical" gay activists who support them would not warrant a response if it did not, in our view, represent something much bigger and more dangerous.

Εδώ και μερικά χρόνια το κουρδικό κίνημα κινείται προς την κατεύθυνση των ελευθεριακών ιδεών. Αν και δεν είναι ένα αναρχικό κίνημα, αυτή η κίνηση είναι ένα σημάδι ότι οι αναρχικές ιδέες της ελευθερίας και της ισότητας μέσα από την αλληλεγγύη, οι ιδέες μας περί οριζοντιότητας και ριζοσπαστικής άμεσης δημοκρατίας καθώς και η ριζοσπαστική κριτική μας ενάντια στο Κράτος δεν είναι μόνο έγκυρες και ισχυρές, αλλά και αναγκαίες σε κινήματα ώστε να ξεφύγουν από την αυταρχική κληρονομιά στην αριστερά. Είναι καθήκον μας να εκφράσουμε την αλληλεγγύη μας στη Rojava και το κουρδικό κίνημα, επειδή αντιπροσωπεύουν την ελπίδα σε αυτήν την περιοχή και επειδή είναι οι καταπιεσμένοι που αγωνίζονται ενάντια στους καταπιεστές. Οι πραγματικοί αγώνες δεν είναι ποτέ τέλειοι, αλλά κουβαλούν διαφορετικές δυνατότητες για μια ελεύθερη κοινωνία. Εκφράζοντας την αλληλεγγύη μας με το επαναστατικό κίνημα στην Rojava σημαίνει ότι κατανοούμε το ρόλο μας στο να συνεχίσουμε να αναπτύσσουμε τα βασικά χαρακτηριστικά των ιδεών μας, προκειμένου να εμπνεύσουμε επαναστάσεις και επαναστάτες σε όλο τον κόσμο.

Da alcuni anni il movimento curdo sta vivendo un processo che si muove in direzione libertaria. Sebbene non si tratti di un movimento anarchico, questo processo indica che le idee anarchiche di libertà ed uguaglianza attraverso la solidarietà, attraverso la nostra idea di orizzontalità e di democrazia diretta e radicale ed attraverso la nostra critica radicale contro lo Stato non solo sono forti e valide, ma sono anche necessarie per i movimenti che vogliano operare una rottura con l'eredità autoritaria all'interno della sinistra. E' nostro dovere esprimere la nostra solidarietà con la Rojava e con il movimento curdo, poiché essi rappresentano una speranza in questa regione e perché si ergono come oppressi in lotta contro i loro oppressori. Le lotte reali non sono mai perfette ma portano con sé diversi gradi di potenzialità di realizzazione di una libera società. Nell'esprimere la nostra solidarietà al movimento rivoluzionario nella Rojava ribadiamo che il nostro ruolo è quello di continuare a sviluppare i principi fondamentali delle nostre idee allo scopo di ispirare le rivoluzioni ed i/le rivoluzionar* di tutto il mondo. - Gruppo Editoriale di Anarkismo.net [English]

rojava_1.png imageInternational Libertarian-Socialist Statement in Solidarity with the Kurdish Resistance 05:36 Sun 19 Oct by Anarchist Organisations and Militants 0 comments

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.net Editorial Group [Italiano]

textPalestine Israel, The joint struggle already eleven years old and continue* 05:15 Mon 13 Oct by Ilan S. 0 comments

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.

textRojava: An Anarcho-Syndicalist Perspective Oct 19 by KB 0 comments

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.

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.
