Tuesday August 26th, the Belgian feminist activist group Lilith’S took Liège airport by storm to condemn the airport authorities’ role in supplying arms to Israel. Under a banner bearing the slogan “HOW MANY TONS OF WEAPONS FOR SO MANY LITERS OF BLOOD ? “, the activists spilled a hundred liters of fake blood, creating a red pool to symbolize the slaughter committed by Israel in Palestine.

this is so awesome that I can’t even begin to comprehend. Applause for them.

You heard it right folks, the FBI considered free breakfasts for poor children to be the most dangerous internal threat to the country. Literally the kind of thing Jesus would do was the most dangerous threat to the country.

Stencil in Athens in May 2011, Riot cops and Nazi thugs one and the same.

Stencil was made in response to a Nazi pogrom in Athens in May 2011, when Golden Dawn members stabbed many immigrants in broad daylight while police watched on, and also the brutal riot police beating of demonstrators using the metal handles of the clubs during a general strike a couple days earlier.

Lucy E. Parsons was a leading figure in American socialism, anarchism and the radical labor movement.

She organized against capitalism and government, and she also helped organize the IWW (Industrial Workers of the World). Described by the Chicago Police Department as “more dangerous than a thousand rioters” in the 1920s, Parsons and her husband had become highly effective anarchist organizers primarily involved in the labor movement in the late 19th century, but also participating in revolutionary activism on behalf of political prisoners, people of color, the homeless and women.

She died in a house fire in 1942 in Chicago. Government agents searched her home after the fire and removed many of her papers. Most of her writings have been lost to history.

Featuring a riveting collection of anarcho-communist poetry, essays, articles, and diary entries, this translation of Erich Mühsam’s legendary writings introduces the German revolutionary’s ideas to English speakers for the first time.

Uniting a burning desire for individual liberation with radical, left-wing convictions and bohemian strains with syndicalist tendencies, this diverse body of work not only includes his main political pamphlet and one of the key texts in the history of German anarchism but also some of his best-known poems, unbending defenses of political prisoners, passionate calls for solidarity among the proletariat, recollections of the utopian community of Monte Verità, debates on the rights of homosexuals and women, and the role of intellectuals in the class struggle. Perfect for anarchists, activists, or those interested in German history, this expansive and enlightening compilation provides a deep understanding of this important historical figure.

Liberating Society from the State - Muhsam, Erich.pdf

We were not born critical of existing society. There was a moment in our lives (or a month, or a year) when certain facts appeared before us, startled us, and then caused us to question beliefs that were strongly fixed in our consciousness-embedded there by years of family prejudices, orthodox schooling, imbibing of newspapers, radio, and television. This would seem to lead to a simple conclusion: that we all have an enormous responsibility to bring to the attention of others information they do not have, which has the potential of causing them to rethink long-held ideas.

Howard Zinn

It’s beautiful that Zinn said this because that “moment” he mentions was, for me, beginning to read A People’s History of the United States the summer before 10th grade and feeling this gaping pit of horror grow as I recalled all the Columbus Day celebrations dating back through elementary school.

Happy 92nd birthday, Howard Zinn. Rest in power.

Yesterday I got a message saying ” an israeli child was killed” , I answered it with this picture (See : count the kids) with a comment ( I don’t like comparing death toll but what I don’t like more is when the world suddenly have tears and human emotions only  when an israeli is harmed . Every soul matters and that’s why we all hate ” wars” )

After the first child, nobody batted an eye; after the 50th not even a slight tremor was felt in a plane’s wing; after the 100th, they stopped counting; after the 200th, they blamed Hamas. After the 300th child they blamed the parents. After the 400th child, they invented excuses; after (the first) 478 children nobody cares.

Something here has to rise up and scream: Enough. All the excuses and all the explanations will not help – there is no such thing as a child that is allowed to be killed and a child that is not. There are only children killed for nothing, hundreds of children whose fate touches no one in Israel, and one child, just one, around whose death the people unite in mourning.

see : The difference between children

If this makes any difference to any one : Palestinian resistance warned israeli settlers living around Gaza to leave and its not safe anymore . They can leave to another safe place unlike Palestinians in Gaza who have no where to escape to.
