Palestine-Israel, The joint struggle is still on after a year of big hopes and bigger disappointment

There were high hopes at the beginning of the year both about the joint struggle against the occupation, about the social struggle, and about the treatment of guest workers families and the refugees. In all three of them there is a clear setback. Only one village (Qadumm) was added to the persistent weekly demonstrations, and settler colonialists harassments intensify the efforts to transfer villagers fro area C. Most of the activists of last year social struggle were lured to the parliamentary quagmire. Many of the guest worker families with children an lot of refugees were deported. More and more refugees are arrested and taken to the huge concentration camp most of the refugees are supposed to be incarcerated in... In spite of disappointment and the Autumn blues the struggle continue. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

E' un lungo cammino quello fatto dalla prima lotta degli Anarchici contro il muro, iniziata col campeggio di Mas'ha 9 anni fa. La lotta unitaria contro il muro della separazione è proseguita e si è allargata ad altre località e ad altri aspetti dell'occupazione. La lotta si è anche allargata all'interno dei vecchi confini di Israele con la lotta sociale legata al problema degli alloggi ed alla pulizia etnica sia all'interno delle comunità ebraiche che di quelle palestinesi, fino alla lotta sociale più generale contro lo sporco neoliberismo.

Oltre alle consuete località di lotta in cui gli anarchici contro il muro hanno unito le loro forze a quelle dei comitati locali degli attivisti, come a Beit Ummar, Bil'in, Ma'sara, Nebi Saleh, Ni'lin, e Qaddum, i compagni hanno preso parte ad altre lotte come a Sheikh Jarrah, sulle colline sud di Hebron, ed all'interno di Israele: come al tribunale regionale di Haifa, al campo di concentramento di Saharonim, ed alle manifestazioni contro le minacce di guerra contro l'Iran.

Recentemente le forze israeliane hanno intensificato la repressione. La maggiore pressione viene esercitata sui contadini palestinesi per sgomberarli dalla Valle del Giordano e dalle colline sud di Hebron, e per colpire la lotta unitaria contro l'espansione coloniale ed il terrore di stato israeliano a Beit Ummar, Nabi Saleh e Qaddum. Nelle settimane passate ci sono state manifestazioni e presidi contro le intenzioni di attacco militare israeliano sugli impianti nucleari in Iran. La lotta contro le provocazioni ai danni dei profughi e la lotta sociale continuano ma con meno coinvolgimento di massa. [English] read full story / add a comment

It has been a long way since the first struggle of the Anarchists Against the Wall started in the Mas'ha camp nine years ago. The joint struggle against the separation fence has persisted and has expanded to other locations and to other aspects of the occupation. The struggle is also expanding inside the old boundaries of Israel to the social struggle of housing problems and gentrification in both Jewish and Palestinian communities, and to the general social struggle against piggish neo-liberalism. The focus of struggle regarding guest worker harassment shifted to the refugees' struggle against persecution, mass arrests and deportation. The bogus preparations of the war mongers for bombing of Iran initiated a lot of vigils. read full story / add a comment

In addition to the regular locations of struggle the anarchists against the wall combine forces with the local popular comities of activists: Beit Ommar, Bil'in, Ma'asara, Nebi Saleh, Ni'ilin, and Qadum, comrades joined additional struggles. Sheikh Jarrah, South of Hebron Hills, and within Israel: Haifa regional court, Saharonim concentration camp, and demos against the war mongering. The uncertainty regarding the exploding of the Tycoons bauble, the economy slump, the war mongering regarding Iran and the scandalous treatment of the refugees dump a bit the energy of the activists. The continuous and escalating of transfer efforts of Palestinians farmers in the main targets of Jordan valley, South of Hebron Hills and the hoses demolitions result in may minutes of felt helplessness.

The Israeli state forces have escalated their repression lately. Their main targets are pressure on Palestinian farmers to transfer out of the Jordan valley and the south of Hebron hills, and the joint struggle against settler expansion and Israeli state terror at Beit Ummar, Nabi Saleh, and Qaddum. Throughout recent weeks there have been demonstrations and vigils against the intended bombing attack by Israel on the nuclear facilities of Iran. A few of them in front of the security compound at Kaplan street, others were mainly in front of the not far away apartment tower where the security minister Barak lives. Israel Putermam video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QPUnMJIBJM At the security compound. The struggle against the harassment of refugees and the social struggle continue too but no large masses are involved. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment
Palestine-Israel, In spite of the pick of the Summer heat, Ramadan day fasting and the war mongering

After years of Friday demos in Bil'in and Saturdays and weekly days demos in other locations I took a break and traveled to the St-Imier international anarchist congress celebrating 140 years of struggle. I presented there three venues: one, the film Bil'in Habibti (Bil'in my love of Shai Polak) with discussion of the struggle in Bil'in, One about the Israeli Anarchists Against the Wall initiative, and one about the Anarchist psychotherapy I developed (http://ilan.shalif.com/psychology/content1.htm). Nothing can compare to a week with thousands of anarchists of all trends from all over the world - meeting in person comrades I work with for years. The struggle in Israel continued with out me and some reports cover the activities I missed. read full story / add a comment

Due to the Ramadan day fasting weeks the joint struggle in the various villages was not as usual. As compensation our comrades were involved in the various demos in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. In Jerusalem a pink-black block participated in the gay parade. In Tel Aviv comrades demonstrated on Wednesday the Susia demolition orders at the military radio station. On Saturday comrades participated in the commemoration meeting of the massacre at the gay club three years ago. Not far away, we had the social struggle - Occupy Tel Aviv. In spite of a competition by a reformist split of the movement meeting promoted by media and hired leafleting workers, our march and demo was even better than the three previous Saturday demos of July. Tomorrow, I am on my way to the international anarchist congress in St-Imier Swiss, commemorating the 140 anniversary of the first anarchist congress there. read full story / add a comment

Nel contesto delle minacce di guerra israeliane per l'attività nucleare dell'Iran, Israele intensifica le azioni per la demolizione delle case e per lo sgombero dei Palestinesi dall'area C, pari al 60% della Cisgiordania occupata. I Palestinesi persistono nella loro modalità di resistenza nota come Tsumud. Gli attivisti israeliani ed internazionali sono uniti dovunque possono - soprattutto nella regione delle colline a sud di Hebron e del fiume Giordano. [English] read full story / add a comment

On the background of the Israeli warmongering focused on the Iranian nuclear initiative, Israel intensifies its steps for house demolition and transfer of Palestinians from area C, which is 60% of the occupied West Bank. The Palestinians persist in the Tsumud mode of resistance. Israeli and international activists join whenever they can - mainly in the region of the hills south of Hebron and the Jordan river. Israeli state forces increase their efforts to exclude the internationals but limited by world PR. In spite of the warmongering, the world economic recession, and the hot weather, the social struggle continues in the main cities. The focus of repression of the joint struggle against the occupation and settler colonialist encroaching lands near settlements was a day after day invasion and harassment in the heroic village of Nabi Saleh.

Fa caldo. Fa molto caldo a metà giornata in questi giorni di mezza estate. Nei villaggi, i palestinesi di religione musulmana hanno iniziato venerdì 20 luglio il periodo di Ramadan che prevede fino al tramonto l'astinenza da cibo ed acqua. Di conseguenza c'è meno partecipazione alle manifestazioni unitarie, che sono però più vivaci grazie al fatto che d'estate arrivano frotte di attivisti internazionali in ferie. Ci sono state le consuete manifestazioni del venerdì a Bil'in, Ma'sara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'lin, Kufr Qaddum, Sheikh Jarrah ed il sabato 21 a Beit Ummar. [English] read full story / add a comment

It is hot. Very hot in the middle of the days in the middle of the summer. The Palestinian people of the villages who follow the Muslim religion started this Friday the Ramadan holidays in which eating and drinking is forbidden when the sun is shining. So the joint demonstrations were a bit shorter and smaller, but more lively as it is the season when a lot of international activists have their Summer vacations. We had this week the usual Friday demos in Bil'in, Ma'sara, Nabi Saleh, Ni'lin, Kufr Qaddum, Sheikh Jarrah and Saturday at Beit Ummar. Accompanying the villagers near colonialist settlements in the South Hebron hills... and throughout the week - peaking on late Saturday evening in the Social Struggle. Though the demonstrations in Tel Aviv are only with thousands of participants each but they are much more militant and radical compared to last year. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

La lotta unitaria degli attivisti palestinesi con gli attivisti israeliani ed internazionali non ha mai potuto contare su un consenso generalizzato. In Israele, negli ambienti più reazionari si obietta che vi sono influenze di componenti laiche, mentre i "nazionalisti" estremisti si oppongono agli attivisti israeliani. L'Autorità Palestinese invece non è mai stata troppo contenta di questa lotta indipendente. Alcuni "militanti" (palestinesi, ndr) sono contro la modalità di lotta non-armata. Persone di strette vedute non hanno un'idea del contributo che la lotta unitaria dà alla pressione internazionale su Israele perché metta fine all'occupazione o almeno attenui il livello di repressione.

The joint struggle of Palestinian activists with Israeli and international activists was never a consensus affair. The more reactionary objected to the influence of secular partners. Extreme "nationalists" oppose the Israeli activists. The Palestinian authority was never too happy with the independent struggle. Some "militants" were against the non-armed mode of the struggle. Narrow-minded people did not have a clue about the joint struggle's contribution to international pressure on Israel to put end to the occupation or at least to lessen the level of repression. The demo against the renewal of discussions of the PA with Israeli rulers brought the PA objections to the open. ---- In Israel, the social struggle collects momentum while the split between the reformists who wish to join the parliament and those who refrain from that quagmire.

In passato, gli attivisti israeliani fermati durante le lotte unitarie venivano rilasciati alla fine della manifestazione oppure dietro cauzione in tarda serata o in nottata dopo un interrogatorio per essere infine diffidati a recarsi in quella regione per due settimane. Raramente accadeva che gli attivisti rimanessero in stato di detenzione anche nel corso della notte per essere poi rilasciati dal giudice il giorno dopo con restrizioni fino ad un mese.

Palestine-Israel, The harassment of Israeli and Palestinians involved in the joint struggle escalate
mashriq / arabia / iraq / community struggles / news report Wednesday July 11, 2012 01:50 byS.yle='background-color:#88FF55;'>Ilan S.
In the past, Israeli activists detained in joint struggle activities were released after the action ended or on bail late evening/night after interrogation in the police station and banned for two weeks from the specific region. Seldom activists were detained for the night and released at court the next day or banned for up to a month. In very seldom cases activists were detained for two nights, or asked by prosecution for longer time. Last Friday an Israeli comrade was detained at Nebi Saleh. Three days later, on Monday evening at about 6pm, he was released after a Jerusalem District Court judge ruled that there was no evidence to substantiate the soldiers’ allegation of assault. He was however indicted for “reckless behavior” and will face court proceedings for this charge. He also was banned from participation in actions for the following three months.

The social struggle within Israel and support for refugees under intense expulsion efforts draw activist from the joint struggle. The internal repression of Palestinians within the west bank by Palestinian Authority personal do not contribute the moral of the people. The sporadic escalation and deescalation of Israeli assaults on the Gaza Ghetto continue, and so are the efforts to transfer Palestinian farmers from the C areas coveted by the colonialist settlers project. Beit Umar, Susia, and the southern Hebron hills are the main victims. read full story / add a comment

The first high pick of the third Intifada is nearly over with significant successes of the hunger strike. As counter measure the Israeli state forces increase the harassments and pressures on inhabitants of area C (69% of occupied west bank) to transfer out to area A of the Palestinian authority. In the on going joint struggles of the AAtW with the popular comities and activists, Nebi Saleh still get the most of the harassments. Quaddum and Beit Ummar, which are too locations of regular struggle which is beyond the initial joint struggles against the separation fence, get the on going pressure and punishment to prevent the expansion to the other villages and small towns. Within Israel comrades were involved with the struggle against deportation of African refugees and racial incitement against them. The summer wave of the Israeli 'Occupy' social struggle is now blooming

Le ondate di sciopero della fame dei prigionieri palestinesi, per la maggior parte finite bene, lasciano un'urgenza. Le forze di Stato israeliane cercano di impedire l'espansione della terza Intifada... ma senza rallentare le operazioni di sgombero dei palestinesi dall'area C. La lotta unitaria, iniziata con l'obiettivo del muro della separazione si è così allargata che ci sono ora altri aspetti prominenti. Gli scontri settimanali a Beit Ummar, a Bil'in, a Hebron e sulle sue colline meridionali, a Ma'sara, a Nabi Saleh, a Ni'lin, a Qaddum, a Sheikh Jarrah, sono il cuore della lotta insieme alle lotte a Gerusalemme Est occupata e nell'area C che sono state recentemente teatro dell'operazioni di sgombero. All'interno di Israele, la lotta sociale monta lentamente, ma con maggiore successo in provincia. [English] read full story / add a comment
