It's been almost ten years since I write regularly in Le Monde libertarian articles on the
situation in "Israel-Palestine". Every time I hope, without much hope, however, that an
early solution may emerge. I must say now that hope is gone. In this endless nightmare
there are still strong. We must salute these women and men who get up every morning and
say "I do not participate." ---- Natan and his refusal ---- November 19 Natan White,
nineteen, came to his barracks. He declared his refusal to serve in the Israeli army. He
was sentenced to ten days in jail and has also received a suspended sentence of ten days.
This is how he expresses his position: "I started thinking about refusing to enlist in the
IDF during Operation Cast Lead in 2008. The wave of aggressive militarism that has swept
the country, then the expressions of mutual hatred, and meaningless speech on the

A brief history of anarchism of the especifista matrix in Brazil. ---- Ten years of the
Forum of Organised Anarchism (Fórum do Anarquismo Organizado – FAO) were commemorated with
the foundation of the Brazilian Anarchist Coordination (Coordenação Anarquista Brasileira
– CAB), uniting organisations from nine states around especifista anarchism as well as
others that are progressively approaching and deepening organisational ties with us. ----
In this text, we present a first contribution, with a few elements for a historical
reconstitution of our current, that is, anarchism of the especifista matrix, in Brazil.
---- We hope that other contributions can help boost it or, possibly, correct the
information presented here. ---- Re-articulation and contact with the FAU ----

On 29 and 30 September last the Fédération syndicale étudiante (FSE - Student Union
Federation) and SUD-Étudiant (SUD-Student) held a congress where they confirmed their
merger, leading to the creation of a new organization in January. ---- After more than six
years of discussions between the student union FSE and SUD-Étudiant, the unification of
fighting student unions is on its way. A merger congress was held in St. Denis in
September and a new organization resulting from the merger saw the light of day with a new
Congress in January 2013. This meeting was an opportunity for militants from the two
federations to outline the bases of the new union and to reaffirm their principles. Mixed
SUD-FSE branches already exist in some universities.
The continuing opposition by loyalists to the decision by Belfast city council to limit
the flying of the Union Jack is a product of a deeply sectarian colonial settlement that
smothers the importance of class. The disturbances were pretty predicable in the context
of summer riots over parading, intra unionist rivalry and rising anger in traditional
protestant working class communities over shortage of jobs, housing and perceived gains
made by the ‘nationalist’ community. The mass inflammatory leafleting by unionist parties
in the days leading up to the council vote served to heighten fears in a constituency
which is easily inflamed and mobilised in defence of the realm. This is not the cause of
the disturbances; but the logical conclusion of capitalist decay and opportunist
politicians battling for the hearts and minds of protestant working class communities-
November 17 was held at Notre-Dame-des-Landes manifestation of reoccupation of the grove.
It was for the protesters and demonstrators oppose deportation proceedings prior to
construction of a new airport north of Pharaonic Nantes.---- For more than a month,
hundreds of riot police are struggling to dislodge all the inhabitants and residents Zad,
space for the construction of the airport. The Zad is the "holding zone" for Vinci and his
servants, but it is the "zone defense" for those who resist large useless projects.--
After weeks of repression and resistance to the occupiers, this event was a turning point
in the mobilization: a success to hope the tide, a failure of government signed the
victory and the construction of the airport.
Le 17 novembre a été organisée à Notre-Dame-des-Landes une manifestation de réoccupation
du bocage. Il s’agissait pour les manifestantes et manifestants de s’opposer aux
procédures d’expulsion préalables aux travaux de construction d’un nouvel aéroport
pharaonique au nord de Nantes. ---- Depuis plus d’un mois, des centaines de gardes mobiles
s’acharnent à déloger l’ensemble des habitantes et habitants de la Zad, espace destiné à
la construction de l’aéroport. La Zad, c’est la « zone d’aménagement différé » pour Vinci
et ses valets, mais c’est la « zone à défendre » pour celles et ceux qui résistent aux
grands projets inutiles. ---- Après des semaines de répression et de résistance pour les
occupants, cette manifestation constituait un tournant dans la mobilisation : un succès
permettait d’espérer renverser la vapeur, un échec signait la victoire du gouvernement et
Avec la situation de crise financière et économique, l’Etat espagnol a commencé à réduire
très sérieusement sa voilure. Ainsi la fermeture d’entreprises et les licenciements se
sont succédé –et continue à se succéder- laissant une traînée de chômeurs. Dans la fièvre
de protestations et de résistance, la transformation sociale (avec l’autogestion comme
élément central) s’exprime avec force dans l’horizon en Espagne. ---- Il y a à peine cinq
ou six ans, parler d’entreprises récupérées ou de coopérativisme en Espagne aurait été
manier des concepts non seulement marginaux sinon profondément éloignés des intérêts et
expériences de la grande majorité de la population. Dans le cadre de la société de la
bulle financière, la consommation débridée et la « fête » de la jeunesse, personne
n’envisageait -ou seulement des groupes réduits ou très localisés géographiquement- la

Mais uma edição do Fevereiro Antifascista ocorrerá no mês que vem. Sua origem é uma
resposta a violência que assassinou um homoafetivo na cidade de São Paulo em 2000, Edson
Neris. Esse caminhava com seu companheiro na Praça da Republica, de mãos dadas quando
foram abordados por um grupo de extremistas de direita (skinsreds bonereds) e atacaram na
covardia a dupla, sendo que um deles não resistiu aos ferimentos e morreu. Esses ataques
sempre existiram e não só contra homoafetivxs mas com todxs que sejam consideradoxs
diferentes dos padrões tradicionais de dominação, que tendem a enobrecer os "homens,
brasileiros, religiosos, brancos e ricos" e tudo que seja relacionado a isso e hostilizar
de todas as formas tudo que seja contrário a esse padrão.
Portland anarchist Kerry Cunneen has announced their refusal to cooperate with the grand jury investigating the May Day attack on the Nakamura federal courthouse in Seattle. Kerry’s subpoena, which was delivered on December 14th, stated that they were required to appear just 5 days later on the 19th. Their lawyer successfully got the date pushed back until January 3rd, when Kerry declined to even enter the grand jury room. Kerry has stated that they will never under any circumstance cooperate with this or any state in persecuting themself or others:
I have been subpoenaed to the grand jury in Seattle investigating Anarchists in the Pacific Northwest. I was called to testify on January 3rd at 9am. I did not appear before the grand jury. I will not cooperate with this grand jury nor will I in any way aid the state in its efforts to imprison people.
I stand firmly in solidarity with the actions taken against the Nakamura Federal court house during the May Day demonstration and all action taken against the state and capital towards the goal of a more liberated society.
I am in solidarity with the May Day 5, with Maddy, Matt and Kteeo, and everyone else who has met repression with resilience. To all whose solidarity has come in some form of action, it is inspiring and must continue.
We support Kerry’s bold refusal to even enter the grand jury room. Although for some, resisting a grand jury may be a display of commitment of civil liberties, free speech, or freedom of association, it can also be a method to further the spread of insurrectionary tactics. To be blunt, it is easier to break windows or act against the state in other ways that are necessarily illegal when there is a culture against snitching among anarchists. We oppose the state in its entirety – we are against its courts, its prisons, its judges, its prosecutors, and every manifestation of the law and their justice. The Committee Against Political Repression is encouraged by attacks against the existent, including the May Day attack on the Nakamura federal courthouse.
The May Day anti-capitalist march in Seattle signaled a broad and growing antagonism to hierarchy and domination, and the state’s heavy-handed response to it (three house raids in Portland, at least nine grand jury subpoenas, and three people currently sitting in prison for refusing to testify) signals just how dangerous the state perceived it to be. As an anonymous author writes in We Are Contagious: a gift to those who desire social revolt,
What was special about May Day wasn’t the black bloc, impressive as it was in its coordination and preparation. What was special was that the hundreds of people clustered around the black bloc probably had a good idea of exactly what was going to happen when the anti-capitalist march left Westlake…and they liked it. They stayed close the bloc anyway; a few even joined in on the fun. Others screamed in joy. Some, who only months ago might have tried to prevent the property destruction or would have later denounced it, simply smiled to themselves and moved on down the road. Perhaps most importantly, a fair number of these people will return to the streets, better prepared to act themselves.
Broken windows are an easily replicable tactic that is capable of rapid generalization. Although broken windows are certainly not the anarchist end-goal (there is no single anarchist end-goal), the tactic of breaking windows is a way for people to directly attack (and cause financial damage to) institutions to which they are opposed, and build affinity in the streets. The state logically must do whatever it can to control, disrupt, recuperate, or liquidate that which presents a threat. While we are angry about this grand jury (and all grand juries, and the existence of the state, period), it also shows that anarchists have been doing something right – anarchists are posing a threat that can’t be ignored.
We can respond to this and all instances of repression by strengthening and escalating our projects of resistance. Kerry has stated that the best support they could ask for is action of some sort that is in resistance to state and capital. Indeed, that is the only way we’ll come through to the other side stronger than before.
