Mercredi 6 décembre 2017, le président fascisant des Etats-Unis d’Amérique, Donald Trump, a mis le feu aux poudres en déclarant reconnaître Jérusalem/Al-Qods comme capitale de l’État d’Israël. Cela répond à une revendication historique de l’extrême-droite israélienne et envoie un message clair d’impunité aux colons les plus radicaux. Depuis cette décision, au moins 8 palestinien-ne-s sont mort-e-s et des centaines de personnes ont été blessées dans des bombardements sur la bande de Gaza et des affrontements avec les forces de l’ordre israéliennes.

On January 3, 2017, Syrian refugees, joined by Iraqi refugees and international supporters, marched on the Russian embassy in Thessaloniki, Greece. An article reporting on the march quotes a Syrian refugee as follows:

“They are trying to kill all the flowers in Syria, but they cannot kill the Spring. The Spring is coming. We are here, they cannot kill all the Syrian people.”

La NATO, rappresentata dallo stato turco, da due giorni sta bombardando senza pietà le unità di difesa popolare curde YPG che stanno avanzando a nord di Aleppo nelle città di A’zaz e Tal Rifaat. I bombardamenti, che hanno ucciso almeno 23 civili, si sono concentrati sulla base aerea di Menagh, conquistata nel 2013 da una coalizione di “ribelli”, tra cui Al Qaeda (il Fronte Al-Nusra) e altri che poi sono confluiti nello Stato islamico. Menagh è un obiettivo strategico per i rifornimenti alla “ribellione” al servizio delle petrol-teocrazie e degli interessi di USA e UE. Ahmet Davutoglu ha detto che di questi bombardamenti è stato informato il vicepresidente USA Joe Biden, il quale anche se non approva pubblicamente l’intervento militare, non lo ha condannato né ha provveduto a frenare lo Stato turco, che non agirebbe mai senza l’assoluta certezza del sostegno USA.

textThe Iran Protests: A Third Path to Political Change? Jan 19 06:36 by Fouad Oveisy and Behnam Amini 0 comments

Days of protests in Iran have caught statesmen, analysts and observers by surprise, even though the anti-austerity and anti-establishment sentiments behind this primarily working-class revolt have been brewing for years. All the same, surprise is not a common reaction across the media. An early analysis offered in a tweet by the popular and self-styled Marxist pundit, Ali Alizadeh, captures a sentiment which is common across an array of responses to these events from individuals and groups as disparate, in both aim and ideas, as the Iranian reformists, the Iranian postcolonial left, and middle class Iranians both inside and outside Iran. Alizadeh asks: “Do you realize that it is because [the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI)] is secured and external threats [to Iran’s national security] have been minimized [by the policies of the IRI], that the right to protest [inside Iran] is now recognized [by the IRI government]?…[This is why I] insist that [regional] security is the prerequisite to everything else, including [civil, political and personal] freedoms.”

textThe Rage of the Poor in Iran Jan 10 19:53 by Araz Bağban 0 comments

The protests against the high cost of living in the cities of Khorasan province on December 28th soon spread to many cities of Iran incredibly quick and almost turned into a revolt within a week. The protests primarily targeted the high cost of living, financial difficulties and corruption. However, they quickly became politicized and began to target the foundations of the Islamic Republic (IR), namely the religious autocracy. The slogans quickly turned from “death to high cost of living” to “death to the dictator.”

Au Rojava, dans le nord de la Syrie, les Kurdes ont entendu le message. En 2012, l’effervescence de la révolte contre Bachar al-Assad leur offre l’opportunité d’une révolution dans la révolution pour donner vie au projet d’une démocratie sans État. Mais cette ambitieuse aventure politique doit faire face à bien des difficultés intérieures ou menaces extérieures. Parce que « le Kurdistan libertaire nous concerne » ( [1]), il est intéressant de connaître ses fondements idéologiques (I), puis de comprendre les ressorts des institutions proto-étatiques mises en place dans une relation incestueuse avec une société civile qui s’auto-organise (II). Les observateurs voient les Kurdes syriens comme d’intrépides guerriers, alors qu’ils sont davantage encore d’intrépides constitutionnalistes. Contre l’avis de tout le monde, ils se sont mis en marche, affranchis des nationalités et frontières, vers ce qu’ils appellent le confédéralisme démocratique, système fondé sur la commune autonome (III).

Bil'in, the symbol of the popular joint struggle of Palestinians, Israelis (with the anarchists against the wall initiative), and internationals, was a site of a year long experiment. The new war minister of Israel tried to extinguish the joint Friday demos by "neglect". The harassments during the demos diminished (first end to the shooting and later refraining from confronting the demos) but the night invasion to harass the village continued. The number of participants diminished gradually but continued. The fact that Bil'in was the only place Palestine could demonstrate without restriction was unbearable... The experiment ended. The Israeli state force is back in the confronting of demos and the shooting of tear gas resumed.

Although this is mostly a descriptive book, without much emphasis in theoretical debates, there is in it a wealth of thought-provoking ideas that have universal value. That this experience is relevant beyond the borders of Syria is proved by the extraordinary reception to this book. Pluto Press is already thinking of the second edition and recently, Ercan Ayboga, one of the co-authors, had a tour in Ireland, North and South, to launch the book; this brought him from Cork to Belfast, with stops in Dublin, Cavan and Dungannon. In all places, the people engaged and felt that Rojava had something very important to tell them.

textPalestine-Israel - One apartheid state nearing 50th birthday and the tension rise* May 06 17:00 by Ilan S. 1 comments

The focus on the Israel-Palestine one apartheid state is more and more in the world media. The fear of Europe - mainly from the extreme Muslim terror, combined with the B.D.S. movement, increase the pressure on Israel. Even US call for at least partial retreat from 1967 conquest of the remaining Palestinian region. The sham excuse Israel will retreat only with final peace agreement in which the Palestinians renounce the right of return of the 1948 refugees is exposed when even the Hamas agree on 1967 borders. Frustrated from the Palestinian Authority yielding to the Israeli needs the Fatah opposition initiated the prisoners hunger strike of 1700 inmates which may ignite a mass revolt of the Palestinians of the west bank. Meanwhile, the harassment of the non-armed joint struggle of grass root village activists and the Israeli anarchists against the wall, that was a bit dormant seems to be ignited again marked with the use live ammunition in Nabi Saleh (taking advantage of the absent of Israelis).

The "far-reaching compromise" of the Israeli Communist Party (and its front Hadash) who are pretending to be non-Zionists, and their like on the Zionist left is "two states for two peoples". It means: the existence of the State of Israel within the 1967 borders - the "Green Line", in which the Palestinian citizens are a minority.

Regional change and new Israeli war minister who is clearly against annexation of additional of parts of Palestine (and even for cutting parts annexed 1948) resulted in the diminishing of the suppression of the non armed popular struggle. For months the Israeli forces diminished the harassment of the Friday demos of villages activists and the Israeli anarchists against the wall. In bil'in they nearly stopped entirely any shooting of tear gas and bullets, seldom tried to stop us from approaching the separation wall... The participants of the big demo of the 12th year celebration could not see even one soldier till the end of the demo when kids forced open the gate of the wall and resulted in a mildest ever response. The failure of the big plan of US to subvert the countries of the region as it exported terror (Al Quida, Daesh and Shieh advances) forced it to compromises with Iran, Rojave, (and probably with Syrian Assad, Russia and the Palestinians).

Sin embargo, lo que nadie dice sobre esa violencia es que es agitada, y financiada, sistemáticamente, por Occidente y su punta de lanza: los Estados Unidos.

As the civil war in Syria continues, in the territory of Rojava – in Kurdish, 'the West' – the northern Syrian Kurdish political movement is attempting to implement 'libertarian municipalism', based on the thoughts of United States (US) anarchist Murray Bookchin. Since the withdrawal of Syrian regime forces in 2012, the movement has consolidated significant territorial gains as a US ally in the anti-Islamic State (IS) struggle, while simultaneously securing Russian support. Viewed with suspicion by Turkey, Syria and Iraqi Kurdistan, the geopolitical conditions of Rojava's emergence are its greatest impediment. This article analyses Rojava's model of rule and socioeconomic development, and its theory and practice in the context of the civil war, and regional Middle Eastern and wider global geopolitics. It reflects on Rojava's place and meaning for contemporary geopolitics in the Middle East, and considers the territory's prospects, discussing its transformative potential for an otherwise troubled region.

Εδώ, ο έλεγχος ασκείται τον κυκλικό (εκ περιτροπής) τρόπο, αναδεικνύοντας ένα καλό επιχείρημα για την FWCUI ώστε να συμπεριλαμβάνεται από τους αναρχικούς σε εκείνα τα συνδικάτα που χαρακτηρίζονται “εναλλακτικά" (ή ελευθεριακά) σε τόσο διαφορετικές χώρες όπως το Μεξικό και η Ελβετία, με τα οποία τα επαναστατικά αναρχικά, επαναστατικά συνδικαλιστικά και αναρχοσυνδικαλιστικά κινήματα έχουν πολλά κοινά.

At the beginning, up to 450 Israelis of the radical left joined the hundreds of Palestinians of Bil'in and the region in the struggle against the robbery of the village land for the Modi'in Elit settlement and the separation fence used for that. It took more than 7 years till the state forces stopped to try to prevent activist from joining the Bil'iners in the Friday joint demonstrations. It took another 5 years till they stop to shoot on us tear gas and "non lethal" bullets. Two Bil'iners paid with their life, hundreds of Palestinians and Israelis were injured, detained and even arrested (Palestinians for long time up to a year and a half, Israelis no more than a day or two). Many thousands of international activists participated with us and contributed later for the international struggle against the occupation. The harassment of the village activists at nights mainly continue, but the struggle will not stop.
