French police forces face protesters during a demonstration in front of the Bastille opera in Paris on May 29, 2011.
French protesters gathered in Paris and rallied against their government, as they modeled Spain’s M-15 movement, with banners calling for Paris to wake up!

About 1,000 protesters gathered on Sunday in Bastille square in Paris according to the French police and demonstrated against the country’s rising unemployment level and corruption, AFP reported.

The demonstration was modeled after the M-15 movement in Spain that has witnessed 2 weeks of violent clashes between security forces and protesters.

The protesters, unfolded giant banners that read; “Real democracy now” and “Paris, wake up”, on the steps of the Opera House in Bastille square.

The Bastille square is known as the place where the French Revolution began.

“There has to be a change in the economic structures to improve the sharing of world resources, because if we continue like this, in unfairness and misery, it could end up badly,” said protester Chantal Piganau.

Security forces monitored the protesters as they called for popular uprising against their government.

Another banner said “The people united will never be defeated.”

Demonstrations are also taking place in other locations in France, such as the southern city of Toulouse and the southwestern city of Bayonne, where people have set up camps and have used other banners saying “We all have reasons to be indignant … join us.”

France has witnessed demonstrations against the government, where many violent clashes between protesters and police forces have occurred, for over a year now.

Revolt burns in us. The time is now.

Goldman-Sachs in Seattle Attacked

 From PugentSoundAnarchist: Revolt burns in us. The time is now. From the first sparks, we are with you. Submitted by Anonymous on Mon, 05/16/2011 – 8:15pm

Revolt burns in us on this day, Monday May 16th, because to live is to rebel. Thus, in the spirit of solidarity with those in struggle in Greece, we blocked a busy intersection in the business district of Seattle during rush hour with a banner that read: “Revolt burns in us. The time is now. From the first sparks, we are with you.”

This intersection is outside an office of Goldman Sachs, architects of the financial crisis that set the stage for the IMF takeover of Greece.

Hundreds of leaflets were afloat as the citizens gaped, open mouthed, but our actions are not for them.

This brief halt in the normal movement of the city traffic was a small gesture committed out of our hatred for this world.
The time is now.

From the first sparks of rebellion we conspire because the only reason to live is for a dream of what is not.

We are with you. Not out of pity or duty but because solidarity is our weapon.

Israel to evict Bedouin village

By Jillian Kestler-D’Amours    UMM AL-HIERAN, Israel, May 9, 2011 (IPS) – As plans to demolish a Palestinian Bedouin village to make way for a new, Jewish-only town move forward in Israel’s Negev desert, the Bedouin residents have submitted a motion for the right to appeal to the Israeli Supreme Court.

Located about 30 minutes from the major town of Beer Sheva, Umm al-Hieran is one of many so-called “unrecognised” Bedouin villages peppering the Negev area that don’t receive basic services or infrastructure from the Israeli state.
