Asli is the154th journalist jailed as Turkey heads for full Fascism

Now is the best moment to resist the slide into Fascism and
Genocide in Turkey. President Erdogan is already a ‘de facto’ dictator, already showing symptoms of megalomania. Buoyed by a far right populist party, a racist anti Kurdish blitz and the biggest purge of suspected opposition since Josef Stalin, Erdogan will hold a referendum on April 16th to grant him total power. Who dares to  vote against him? After that we will have a militant Fascist State in Europe. Erdogan will have ”legitimacy” to bring back the death penalty for those suspected of insulting him, and embark on a serious genocide of the millions of progressive left and Kurdish youth, etc..

154th journalist imprisoned in Turkey by Erdogan

Asli Ceren Aslan, editor of the newspaper Özgür Gelecek (Free Future) was arrested on 9 February in the province of Urfa province, Kurdish southeast of Turkey. She was “officially” arrested in Urfa, near the border with Syria while following the events in Syria and Rojava Kurdistan.

Turkey blackmails Trump to help Destroy Democratic Rojava and Hold it as a Turkish Jihadi ”Safe Zone”

erdogans-planThe racist dictator, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is trying every means to blackmail and bribe the US into creating the Trump requested ”safe zone” in Syria by destroying the only progressive multi ethnic, multi religion, non sexist area in the whole of the Middle East, .. Rojava.

Blackmail.. by threats to leave Nato, to join the Russia/Iran/China axis, to expose the US creation and financing of ISIS.. etc, and   Bribery.. by promising to conclude the huge new arms purchases, by perhaps blocking the Russian South Stream gas pipeline, etc.

Will Trump betray the only progressive future for Syria? ..Syrian-Kurdish women carry the coffins of female fighters in Syria's northeastern city of Qamishli on July 21, 2016 during the funeral of sixteen fighters killed battling the Islamic State (IS) group in Manbij. 150 SDF volunteers died liberating the town, including six from the International Brigade.(William Savage, from the US was killed rescuing civilians). Now Turkey is pressurizing Trump to betray the SDF, destroy the democratic revolution, and hand Manbij to Turkish controlled jihadi FSA mercenaries.

Now Turkey is pressurizing Trump to betray the SDF, destroy the democratic revolution, and hand Manbij to Turkish controlled jihadi FSA mercenaries.

The Plan is to effectively annexe the north of Syria as a ‘safe zone’ run by his own paid jihadi proxies, the FSA. Russia seems now to reluctantly go along with this, and excludes the SDF and Kurds from all negotiations.

Now the ruling Turks only need to get Trump on board.. so that their 5000 tanks can roll, the Rojava revolution can be destroyed, women can again be slaves, and a new 40 years war with Syria can begin.

prisoners-turkey

There are already 800  more pro-Kurdish, feminist and left-wing civilians detained in Turkey in just 48 hours.

Meanwhile theTurkish state is receiving billions from European taxpayers in blackmail money to not to send refugees North.

And both the USA and Russia are wooing the dictator Erdogan as a strategic partner and customer in their insane capitalist expansion,  To the extent that both give permission to invade Syria and to bomb and shell SDF and YPG/YPJ areas practising non ethnic, non religious and anti sexist direct democracy.. to replace them with factions of whatever crazed jihadi drug addicts they can find, as long as they are  pro-Turkey.

Phineas Fisher Proves he or she’s Free! . Catalan Police arrested 4 innocent Activists

HACKERS GONNA HACK
The  person who hacked the repressive Catalan cops, the dictator Erdogan and various sick Capitalists has proved she/he and friends are  STILL FREE and it looks like the police have arrested innocent activists.phineas-fisher
After the arrests in Catalonia and Salamanca Phineas Fisher immediately emailed from his/her account and has now been interviewed on Motherboard using the same unique encryption keys as a year ago and personal information, making it almost certain the piggies have failed and  HAVE EGG ON THEIR FACES.
“I think the Mossos (police) just arrested some people that retweeted the link to their personal info, or maybe just arrested some activisty/anarchisty people to pretend they are doing something,” they said in an email shared through an intermediary with Motherboard.

 Hacker Phineas Fisher Is Taking a Break Because of too much Success and Stress

 Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai  by Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai.. shared with thanks

Last week, Spanish authorities arrested three people in connection to the hack on a local police union last year. Quickly, rumors spread that the cops might have gotten the people behind the mysterious and notorious hacktivist Phineas Fisher, who had claimed responsibility for the attack on the Catalan local police and was also behind the more famous breaches on the spyware vendors FinFisher,  Hacking Team, and on the Turkish government.

All 4 activists are now free , the Barcelona couple were charged  with an unrelated infraction ( having a false skiing ticket?) and the two in Salamanca are freed awaiting citation, all with no bail restrictions, implying that even the police realise they are NOT Phineas Fisher.

We Deny free speech to Nazis who try to Destroy it for Everyone

Freedom against the freedom of speech

With the expansion of neo-fascist and neo-nazi groups in the shadows of ever more racist, xenophobic and sexist “traditional” conservative right-wing political parties, confusion over the significance of the liberal freedom of speech can paralyse radical political criticism and action.  We share below a timely analysis from CrimethInc on the limits of free dialogue when politics must be conceived of as war, as a conflict between ways of life.

We are Not in a Dialogue:

We need Not Just Free Speech……….. but Freedom Itself

antifaschistische-aktion-women-s-t-shirtMaybe you missed this, but you’re not in a dialogue. Your views are beside the point. Argue all you want—your adversaries are glad to see you waste your breath. Better yet if you protest: they’d rather you carry a sign than do more. They’ll keep you talking as long as they can, just to tire you out—to buy time.

They intend to force their agenda on you. That’s what all the guns are for, what the police and drones and surveillance cameras are for, what the FBI and CIA and NSA are for, what all those laws and courts and executive orders are for. It’s what their church is for, what those racist memes are for, what online harassment and bullying are for. It’s what gay bashings and church burnings are for.
