[adapted from a post at Poumista] Two interesting items: The colour brown: de-colonising anarchism and challenging white hegemony by Budour Hassa in Random Shelling. Extract: The appearance of the Egyptian Black Bloc in Cairo’s streets in January 2013 triggered gullible excitement in Western anarchist circles. Little thought was given to the Egyptian Black Bloc’s political vision – or lack […]

Cross-posted from BobFromBrockley At the start of the year, I wrote a post on nations, states and the one-state solution, which ended with an invocation of John Lennon’s “Imagine”. It was pretentious, self-dramatising and exaggerated to talk about a “defining moment” in the way I did, and I cringe to re-read that final paragraph of the post. […]

Via Roderick T Long: The Center for a Stateless Society announces a new Arabic website and an open letter to the Egyptian people. One of Kevin Carson’s pieces has also been picked up by a couple of prominent Middle Eastern news sources, here and here. For news on the latest activities of Anarchists Against The Wall, see here.

Following up the material on Gille Dauve and negationism (1, 2, 3, also Contested Terrain), this is a text by Trop Loin, the group Dauve is now involved in, on Israel/Palestine, which I strongly recommend.

Entdinglichung has been linking to the series of No War But the Class War and related materials that LibCom has been publishing. Some are very worth reading. * David Duncan: Mutiny in the RAF: the air force strikes of 1946 (1999) * No War But The Class War: Preliminary notes on the situation in Palestine […]

Reinventing policies in Israel and Palestine means laying the groundwork now for a kind of Jewish-Palestinian Zapatismo, a grassroots effort to ‘reclaim the commons’. This would mean moving towards direct democracy, a participatory economy and a genuine autonomy for the people; towards Martin Buber’s vision of ‘an organic commonwealth . . . that is a community of […]

From SlackBastard: The Israeli Anarchists Against the Wall (AATW) were formed in 2003 and have since used direct action tactics in hundreds of actions in response to the construction of the wall Israel is building on Palestinian land in the Occupied West Bank. AATW work in cooperation with Palestinians in the West Bank in actions […]
