by wikipedia... Since its founding last year dozens of rebel militias of all ethnic and religious hues have flocked to join the SDF (see long list and details below), as they can retain their identities and participate equally, embracing the new ideology of ‘Democratic Confederalism’ of the Rojava revolution. By May 2016 the SDF had up to 80,000 fighters and the percentage of Kurds was only about 60% and falling (wikipedia). Continue reading Rojava Revolution gets support: Mass Desertions to join SDF
It hardly seems necessary to summarize what has gone down inside U.S. prisons since September 9th. Hunger strikes, work stoppages, and riots have spread throughout the country on a scale that we likely aren’t even fully aware of yet.
Some uprisings appeared took us by surprise, such as in several Florida prisons, while others presumably grew from recent organizing endeavors on the inside, such as at Kinross in Michigan or Holman in Alabama. By rough estimates, over 20,000 prisoners were involved in some way. That’s huge.
On the outside, solidarity burned so brightly all over the world. Banner drops, graffiti slogans, noise demonstrations and more showed that we had the backs of all who would partake in the strike. It is worth noting however that the vast majority of this took place the first weekend of the strike. Continue reading Call for renewed Worldwide Actions in Solidarity with Prison Strike, Oct 15-22
“Only 2.3 percent of respondents in a July poll by Spain’s Center for Sociological Investigations considered the lack of government the country’s major problem, and the figure is getting even smaller.”
adapted from a Derrick Brose post in TheAnti-Media.org.. with thanks
For more than nine months, Spain has existed without a traditional national government. In the face of this lack of central authority and planning, Spaniards have done ”the impossible”: they have thrived without a government.
Spanish politicians warned the people that allowing the national government to fade away could have disastrous effects. However, as the New York Times notes, “the crisis seems to have offered a glimpse of life if politicians simply stepped out of the way. For many here, it has not been all that bad.”
“No government, no thieves,” Félix Pastor, a language teacher, told the Times. Pastor said the people of Spain were better without a government because the politicians were unable to cause any more harm. Rafael Navarro, a 71-year old pharmacy owner in Madrid, told the Times that “Spain would be just fine if we got rid of most of the politicians ...” Continue reading Spain doing Fine: There’s No Government like No Government
Freedom for Luis Fernando Sotelo now on INDEFINITE HUNGER STRIKE”
The State jailed our compañero Luis for 33 years for ‘damaging property’ at the Third Global Day for Ayotzinapa Protest, two years ago. Accused of burning a bus Luis has been victimised and demonised in yet another atrocity by the ”terrorist” State.
LETTER OF LUIS FERNANDO SOTELO, POLITICAL PRISONER: “I’M ASSUMING AN INDEFINITE HUNGER STRIKE”
Secondly. I invite you to reorganize the forces, as a means to continue the visibilization of the rebellions and resistances against the system of domination and against the contemporary state of affairs.
Secondly (second point). I publically declare that since September 28 of this year, I have assumed an indefinite hunger strike. The motives for this are to recover myself and my sense of life. Continue reading Luis on Hunger Strike after 33 yr sentence for Ayotzinapa Solidarity

Anonymous has not taken too kindly to Facebook’s recent censoring of Palestinian journalists and activists, trying to get the word out about the brutal Israeli occupation and the police state apparatus that enforces it.
Now, Anonymous Red Cult has made a startling threat against the social media giant, saying that “for every Palestinian account you censor, we will hack an Israeli government website,” according to our sources within the group.
Greetings citizens of the world…
We are Anonymous RedCult. We will make this video short and straight to the point.
First of all, as most of you that know us, we use nothing but facts supported by proofs in our research and video messages.
Recently, Facebook has formed a clear alliance with the oppressions of the Israeli State, and against the freedom of speech.
Facebook began censoring posts and even banning pages in general by Anonymous and all activists, and specifically by Palestinian activists and journalists.
Meanwhile, they have allowed ISIS to have virtual free-reign over their social media platform, as well as paedophiles and others who use their website for nefarious aims.
We are facing a new Israeli propaganda backed up by Facebook after they had Officially announced Collaboration To censor social media content agreeing to work together with Israel’s government, to censor content Israeli officials deem to be improper,
This arrangement that took place in a meeting between Israeli government ministers and top Facebook officials on September 11th, 2016, paved a new road for the face of Facebook and the statement “YOUíRE TOAST IF WE DON’T LIKE YOUR POST” will push Facebook’s integrity to the edge. Israel actively reviews the content of Palestinian and activists posts and has even arrested some Palestinians for posts on the social media site.
They then forward the requests for censorship to Facebook, who accepts the requests 95% of the times, while Facebook posts inciting violence against Palestinians are surprisingly common and Facebook rarely censors these posts.
The same goes for all anti-Israeli posts. This suspicious collaboration has raised concerns that Facebook has become complicit in silencing portions of its userbase. Facebook has reportedly complied with 95 percent of the Israeli government’s requests to take down content, this behavior is deemed to inspire more cyber attacks.
So the question is: Is FaceBook turning to IsraeliBook?!
In response to Facebooks censorship, Anonymous Red Cult and MajHoul are launching a continued all out cyber war on the Israeli government and their websites.
In the future, any such acts of censorship will sure put Facebook integrity on the line, and will cause Anonymous in general and Anonymous Red Cult in specific to launch more similar cyber attacks on the Israeli government, and such action that may cause hacktivist cyber attacks on Facebook itself,
and it will be just the beginning.
The choice is yours Facebook. If you wish to suppress freedom of speech in order to protect a brutal regime, then you and that regime will be punished for your actions.
And last, all the information were mentioned in this video can be confirmed with a simple google search.
We are Anonymous, We are Anonymous Red Cult. We are legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. You should have expected us.

No es posible dar vuelta a la historia y eliminar los estragos causados por la colonización.
Sin embargo, sí que es posible visibilizar las diferentes visiones y vivencias sobre esta parte de la historia, apoyar la acción de la justicia y la reparación de los daños causados y, especialmente, prevenir la repetición del daño ya sea de manera simbólica o material y trabajar para la superación del sistema económico-político global que funda sus raíces en todo tipo de colonización.
