After 200 days of incomparable historical resistance, the hunger strikes in Kurdistan, Turkey and Europe have been declared over today

 We send our warmest revolutionary greetings to all comrades who took part in the hunger strike and the many resistance actions and congratulate the free peoples on this victory.

Ocalan in the past has declared long ceasefires with the Turkish State rejecting terrorism and separatism  in favour of ‘municipal anarchist’ communal ideas and feminist emancipation which have swept through the over 15 million Kurdish population.

On November 8, 2018 the Kurdish politician Leyla Güven had started her hunger strike to lift the total isolation against Abdullah Öcalan, the representative of the Kurdish people and philosophical thought leader of the revolution in Northeast Syria.

According to a recent count, just since the signing of the peace agreements in Colombia, in November 2016, 596 social leaders have been killed.

Ordóñez was murdered Monday night by a group of strangers in the department of Nariño, in southwestern Colombia, official sources said.

Rosero Ordóñez, 47 years old, was the representative of the Public Ministry of the town of Samaniego, in Nariño, and had previously warned she was receiving threats against her life.

According to a police report, the lawyer was approached by two hit men, who shot her at close range.

Although she was given first aid almost immediately, it was impossible to save his life, the reports said. The Attorney General of the Nation and the Ombudsman of Colombia, in a joint statement, lamented the crime.

“@PGN_COL and @DefensoriaCol condemn the crime against the person from Samaniego, Nariño. Statement attached”

Both institutions demanded that the government of Colombian President Ivan Duque “take urgent measures” to guarantee the lives of human rights defenders, as well as all social leaders.

Luis Eduardo Dagua, his body was found with clear signs of torture;

According to a recent count made last week, after the signing of the peace agreements in Colombia, in November 2016, there 139 former guerrilla fighters were killed. Also 31 relatives of ex-rebels have been killed, while 596 social leaders and 119 Indigenous people were murdered.

According to the non-governmental organization Programa Somos Defensores, from January to March, 25 more human rights defenders in Colombia were killed.

The US is blockading and subverting Venezuela to control it like Colombia. Plan Colombia was a counter narcotics and counter insurgency military aid package launched in 2000 by then U.S. President Bill Clinton to put down leftwing resistance to the oligarchy, the ‘Mafia of the Rich’  who have long plagued Colombia, and indeed Latin America, …

COLOMBIA’S WOMEN: VICTIMS OF A COERCIVE PEACE

Plan Colombia Has Been a Nightmare for Women  Six women were raped every hour in Colombia during the first nine years of Plan Colombia. That figure was taken from a joint survey done by women’s rights organizations, which include Oxfam and other Colombian based groups. The study revealed that some 489,678 women were victims of some type of sexual violence, while 7,752 had been forced into prostitution between 2000-2009—what were integral years for the controversial deal.

As one more example, Colombian Indigenous and campesino leader Alicia Lopez Guisao was killed in Medellin

Trump tweets World War, invites False Flag To Trigger Attack

We don’t support the theocratic Iranian State which, like Israel, is doubly pernicious and especially lethal to women’s, workers and minority rights. But now the President publicly threatens to kill 83 million of us in Iran to prove the US is the biggest bully ! 

And this after personally vetoing a bill that could have stopped the slaughter in Yemen, making him personally responsible for the death of an innocent child every 10 minutes! The USA is legitimizing a whole new level of human depravity.

The global arrogance displayed by the President of the US Donald Trump was not just unbecoming of a great country like the USA, it displayed hubris on an astounding scale.

Amid an ongoing war of words between Washington and Tehran, Trump threatened that if actual fighting breaks out between the two countries, Iran will be destroyed. Continue reading “Trump tweets World War, invites False Flag To Trigger Attack”

Switzerland: Repression and Eviction of #Fabrikool

#Switzerland: Night of rage in the streets of #Bern in response to repression and eviciton of #Fabrikool squat

Bern, Switerland: On Friday May 17 there was a demo against the eviction. On May 18 there was a night of rage and resistance against the eviction and the recent wave of repression started in the Swiss capital.

Originally published by Barrikade Info: Here and here. Translated by Enough 14.

Fabrikool Demo on May 17

On May 17 about 400 people marched through the streets of Bern loud and self-determined. It was a strong and clear sign to oppose the decision of the canton and shows that free spaces like the Fabrikool are necessary and must be fought for. During the whole demonstration we were fed with the finest food.

AGG, f*ck you!
Hebeisen und Vatter: You really f*ck up!

Ps. Full speech on www.fabrikool.ch (German)

Some words on the events of May 18

In the night from Saturday to Sunday we participated in the offensive actions against the police in the area around the Reitschule (riding school). We see today’s move as a necessary response to the recent repression in the Bern area. Today our anger was so big that the police had to withdraw several times. We see this as a sign of success and as an emerging motivation to continue to stand in the way of the state and the police.

We are people who show solidarity with the evicted Fabrikool. We would like to point out that the Fabrikool was fought for within the militant actions around the Effy29 eviction. The state’s fear of a new conflict ultimately led to the Fabrikool not being evicted. Today’s actions should recall the time around the Effy29 eviction. Every eviction has its price!

We place the Fabrikool eviction in the context of a repressive armament that has taken place in recent months. Thus, raids were repeatedly carried out around the riding school, people were threatened and harassed by the police, and almost political sprayers and guests of the riding school were run over by a plain police patrol. The state is also trying to strike with legal means. Thus, dozens of people are currently receiving orders of punishment for the Afrin demo that was surrounded last year. With the new police law, more repressive arrows are waiting in the quiver of the judiciary and police.

As desperate as the state tries to oppress and smash us, resistance to the recent repression manifests itself in various ways. Today it was with stones and burning barricades, for months it has been flowers on the orphanage square for the murdered K. and soon it could be new occupations.

The power and energy we have experienced today will be carried into our future struggles. At the same time such attacks need a phase of reflection and criticism. So we cannot fight for a world free of domination if on such evenings sexist expressions and actions of some are displayed and self-staging is seen as the central reason for such actions.

We greet the arrested in Indonesia.
We greet all who are currently affected by the repression of the Afrin demo.
We greet all people with whom we show solidarity far too rarely.

1. Deepening our resistance

Synchronicity has a funny way of throwing together two apparently unrelated events in  a way that invites comparison.

This was the case, for instance, with Saturday November 17 2018, the day on which both the Gilets Jaunes in France and Extinction Rebellion (XR) in the UK were launched onto their respective national stages.

Initially, the comparison appeared to favour XR, from our perspective at least. In Britain, altruistic environmentally-aware protesters were battling to save the planet, while across the Channel the Yellow Vests were upset about a rise in petrol prices.

But that perception rapidly changed. Continue reading “The Acorn – 49 – read it here”

US Sanctions kill 40,000 Venezuelans : Media Tsunami of Blatant Lies

40,000 Dead Venezuelans Under US Sanctions: Corporate Media Turn A Blind Eye

A new report on April 25 by a respected think tank has estimated that US sanctions imposed on Venezuela in August 2017 have caused around 40,000 deaths. This atrocity has been almost entirely blanked by the British ‘mainstream’ media, including BBC News. Additional sanctions imposed in January 2019 are likely to lead to tens of thousands of further deaths.

‘Why for example, would the media not point out the real crimes of the US vassals of South America, like Colombia, where over 6 million people are internal and external refugees, where at least 240,000 peasants and human rights activists were massacred and many were burned by US-funded paramilitary groups, atrocities that are ongoing as of this day..’

The report was co-authored by Mark Weisbrot and Jeffrey Sachs for the US-based Center for Economic and Policy Research. CEPR was founded in 1999 ‘to promote democratic debate on the most important economic and social issues that affect people’s lives.’ Its advisory board includes Nobel Laureate economists Robert Solow and Joseph Stiglitz.

The mother was accused of being a member of a terrorist organization due to her remarks in a speech that she gave over the grave of her son Evrim Deniz Erol and some other press statements regarding his death.       continues below


suruc-explosion-3_3381376bJuly 20, 2015, Suruç: 34 Kurdish humanitarian volunteers were killed and about 100 injured in a suicide bombing in the predominantly-Kurdish town of Suruç near the border with Syria. Turkish officials blamed ISIS. But instead of cracking down on ISIS which at the time was covertly sponsored in Turkey,  they immediately began a blitzkrieg persecution of the Kurds themselves who were the victims, resulting in the end of the ceasefire (and the whole Peace Process initiated and maintained by the imprisoned Kurdish leader Ocalan) and unleashing the wave of Turkish nationalism that boosted Erdogan’s march to supreme dictator. ISIS never claimed the attack.


Erol’s lawyer Abdulbakir Erdogmus told Gazete Duvar that accusations against the mother are legally unacceptable. Continue reading “Mother gets 7 years for Speech at Son’s funeral ..Stop Turkish Fascism!”
