A enorme colônia foi observada através de um conjunto de virtudes além do embranquecimento de uma classe média, média alta e frações de classe dominante cujos mais notáveis membros formam a “vergonha dos árabes”. No texto que segue fazemos uma correlação entre a missão brasileira para a terra ancestral, o papel da solidariedade à Causa Palestina e uma razoável proposta de arranjo e aproximação diplomática, contando tanto com capitais emigrados como os recursos humanos da diáspora e sua descendência. Desenvolvemos o texto como um esforço, grão de areia na (re)construção da tão sonhada esquerda árabe-brasileira. read full story / add a comment

For the past few years, most people would have come across news stories of how Kurdish fighters in Syria, especially women, have been crucial in battling the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Very few, however, would be aware that in the north and eastern parts of Syria these same Kurdish fighters are part of a revolution as progressive, profound and potentially as far-reaching as any in history. In the north and eastern parts of Syria, an attempt to create an alternative system to hierarchical states, capitalism and patriarchy is underway and should it fully succeed it holds the potential to inspire the struggle for a better, more egalitarian Middle East, Africa, South Africa and indeed world. As in any revolution it has had its successes and shortcomings, but it is already an experiment worth reflecting on as it shows a far different world could be built to the extremely unequal and increasingly right-wing and authoritarian one that exists today. read full story / add a comment

The first years of the joint struggle against the wall had some gains that drew activists to the struggle. However, for years the continuous joint struggle have much more gains, but not on the ground for people to see with their eyes. Gradually both Palestinians and Israeli activists dropped out with not so many to replace them. Still, on the weekly demonstrations the participants - Israelis, internationals, and Palestinians are far from any thought on quitting. We see the changes in the international arena. Taste of it is brought to us by the international activists who keep coming. If the weekly demos reminded activists the activity of Sisyphus of rolling a heavy rock uphill to the summit just to have it down again, it is clear to any one who see the whole picture that the rolling of the rock uphill again and again is decimating the hill and may be we are not so far from the last rolling of the rock up the hill. read full story / add a comment

Last Friday (1.4) lot of anarchist flags again in Bil'in challenging the new efforts to put end to the Friday demos in the village. The long range tear gas cannisters prevent any interaction with the Israeli soldiers and stoped the demonstrators from exiting the village - like in the demonstrations in Bil'in eleven years ago before the intense efforts to put end to the demonstrations was replace with the contention of them; and like in the other locations - Ni'ilin, Nebi Saleh, and Qaddum where the efforts to put end to the demonstrations intensify. (So are with out the success the intense efforts to strangle the south of Hebron hills activities with other means.) People with keen ears can already hear the beginning of the countdown towards the end of the imperial settler colonial project in the East of the Mediterranean sea. May be the acceleration of the process is the result of the accumulation of the fiascos of Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Libya... read full story / add a comment

The devastating civil war that has followed the popular uprising in Syria which began in March 2011 has to an extent drowned out the legitimate grievances of the civil-protest movement against Assad and Ba'athism. This war has been greatly inflamed by support by the U.S. and Israel along with the reactionary Gulf monarchies for anti-Assad rebels on the one hand, and aid provided to the regime by Iran and Russia on the other. In addition, clearly, this geopolitical dynamic has driven the rise of ISIS/Islamic State, and it informs the new war being waged by the NATO-Arab monarch “coalition.” In contrast to the neoliberal authoritarianism of Assad and the reactionary fanaticism of ISIS and associated rebel-groupings, though, the Kurds of northeastern Syria (Rojava) are working to institute a more or less anti-authoritarian society. Hope may be found in this social model, as in the direct action of the uprising. read full story / add a comment

“Come here, listen to this”, Ali slowly leafed through the pages of the local newspaper, “look, you see this small paragraph? This is an account from a fighter in the villages.” I asked him if he could translate. “Today we lost several fighters but we killed three Pakistani soldiers and shot down their helicopter”. I asked him whether he had visited the fighters in the Bolan Pass. “Yes, I’ve been there in my role as a government official but also as a Baloch, I negotiated with them on the release of a hostage, but I respect their fight”... read full story / add a comment

At the moment, the Middle East (taken broadly, that is, the area from North Africa to Pakistan) is the part of the world experiencing the greatest political instability and undergoing the most rapid change. At the center of the turmoil is Syria, now in its third year of civil war with no sign of any resolution in sight. Given the centrality of Syria to global politics, it is essential that anarchists understand what is going on there and develop a critical attitude toward the events that are unfolding. Unfortunately, we are not experts on the history and current dynamics of Syria and of the Middle East as a whole. The following theses are therefore presented with humility. We would greatly appreciate input from others, particularly those with greater background in the area, especially anarchists living in the region, in the development of our position. read full story / add a comment

Il y a dix ans que dure la guerre en Afghanistan : dix ans de pertes humaines, dix ans d’escalade, dix ans de destructions, dix ans de corruption. Dix ans de guerre qui nous rappellent que l’armée française ne fait pas que parader, elle est surtout là pour tuer. read full story / add a comment
asie de l'ouest / mouvement anarchiste / entrevue Friday April 22, 2011 06:04 by Blogue du Collectif Emma Goldman
Avec le démantèlement de l’Union soviétique, de multiples petits États déclarèrent leur indépendance. La Géorgie, pays du Caucase de 4,5M d’habitant-e-s situé à la limite entre l’Europe et l’Asie, réinstaura son indépendance en 1991 et vit aujourd’hui des relations diplomatiques avec la Russie très tendues depuis la guerre en Ossétie du sud et en Abkhazie en 2008. Des militant-e-s anarchistes ont créé une section de la Confédération Révolutionnaire des Anarcho-syndicalistes de N.I. Makhno (RKAS) en 2010 dans la capitale de la Géorgie, Tbilissi. Le secrétaire local de la section a accepté de répondre à l’entretien ci-dessous. read full story / add a comment

E' nell'interesse della classe lavoratrice che l'occupazione imperialista in Afghanistan venga sconfitta. Questo non avverrà ad opera dei Talebani (cosa che, dovesse accadere, creerebbe tuttavia i suoi problemi), ma col ritiro dell'appoggio alla guerra da parte delle classi lavoratrici dei paesi occupanti e con la diffusione di una aperta opposizione alla guerra.

It is in the interests of the working class for the imperialist occupation of Afghanistan to be defeated. This will not be achieved by the Taliban (and, indeed, would create its own problems if it was), but by the withdrawal of support for the war by the working class of the occupying countries and the spread of open opposition.

RAWA (Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan - Asociación de las Mujeres Revolucionarias de Afganistán) es una agrupación clandestina que promueve la defensa de los derechos humanos en un Afganistán dividido entre un gobierno débil y fundamentalista auspiciado por las armas de las potencias occidentales y los talibanes. Con su compromiso por un movimiento popular y democrático, constituido sobre la educación de las mujeres afganas, básicamente analfabetas, RAWA se ha convertido en objetivo a batir para ambos contendientes.

Buscando denunciar la perniciosa invasión y conseguir apoyo y solidaridad de colectivos sociales españoles, una activista de RAWA ha llevado a cabo una gira de charlas por todo el estado español. Se trata de Mariam Rawi (nombre ficticio), una joven periodista y profesora que vive a caballo entre Afganistán y los campos de refugiados de Pakistán. A su paso por Logroño hemos podido conversar brevemente con ella.
