  • Posted on: 11 June 2018   By: thecollective   via Sprout Distro

The following zines and pamphlets were released within the broad anarchist space during the month of May. We encourage folks to check them out, print them, share copies, and discuss them.

We produce these lists each month to help boost the visibility of anarchist publications. We try to cast a wide net with these posts, and consequently we don’t necessarily agree with nor endorse everything contained within these zines. If you have suggestions for texts to include next time, get in touch.

Indigenous resistance, title make Trans Mountain pipeline extension ‘untenable,’ says economist

Warrior Publications

KANAHUS-2 Land defender Kanahus Manuel (centre) and Secwepemc people and allies have vowed to defend unceded Secwepemc territory against the Trans Mountain pipeline extension. Some say Secwepemc title and jurisdiction make the controversial project a risky investment.

by Justin Brake, APTN News, June 8, 2018

The Trans Mountain pipeline expansion is a high-risk investment for Canada and any future financial backers because it runs through unceded Indigenous lands, says one economist.

Guerilla gardening – just do it!

guerrilla gardening
the activity of growing plants without permission on land that belongs to someone else or on public land, with the aim of improving the environment or producing vegetables or flowers for people to use or enjoy

Starting a project to make a change in your neighbourhood can seem to be a daunting prospect. Yes, there are grassroots community projects that are complex and there are probably good reasons for that – changing the world is not an easy business and a degree of organisation is required. However, there are things you can do which don’t require a lot of organisation or hours writing funding applications. Guerilla gardening is one of those things you can do…

If there’s an awkward shaped smallish plot of land in your neighbourhood that’s been neglected and no one’s sure who owns or has responsibility for it, why not do a bit of guerilla…

Israeli troops killed four Palestinians and wounded hundreds of others on Friday with live fire or tear gas used against protesters at the Gaza border, medics said, while Israel said militants had attacked its forces with guns and grenades.

Organizers linked the protests to annual “Jerusalem Day” events in Iran, which like Gaza’s dominant Hamas Islamists preaches Israel’s destruction and was incensed by the U.S. recognition in December of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.

“There is no such state called Israel that could have a capital called Jerusalem,” Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum said.

He said the Gaza demonstrations, launched on March 30, would continue until Palestinians achieve their demand for a right…

SDF and Women’s Revolution in Manbij betrayed by Trump to Terrorist Erdogan

 A SDF/YPJ soldier embraces a hostage freed from ISIS in Manbij in August 2016..  ‘Now the US betrays those who gave their lives to free Manbij  with a dirty deal to hand the city to Turkish backed terrorist jihadi mercenaries, many of whom are recycled IS members.. the FSA’ . June 2018 The Manbij Military Council has rejected the US/Turkey agreement

The report below on the women’s revolution in Manbij was written before their betrayal by the USA.  The Trump/Erdogan ‘roadmap’ plans to ‘hand over’ to the FSA jihadist terrorist mercenaries sponsored by Turkey the cities of  Manbij, Raqqa the ISIS capital and other areas where ISIS was heroically expelled despite heavy losses by the SDF, which includes the YPG/YPJ .

15/08/2016.Thousands of ISIS hostages passed from a medieval tyranny to a revolutionary and feminist area as Manbij fell to the SDF. Now Turkey wants to enslave these women again by giving Manbij back to new jihadi mercenaries..''..Women don’t possess any rights under the regime of ISIS. We are left without a will or the possibility of self expression.  Women become prisoners in their own houses; besides giving birth to children, they don’t have any rights or value. We can call this war against women..''

We are left without a will or the possibility of self expression.  Women become prisoners in their own houses; besides giving birth to children, they don’t have any rights or value. We can call this war against women..”

The agreement says that Turkey and the US  will ”jointly guarantee security”.  It looks like the city of Manbij, liberated from IS terror after a long and bloody fight, the first and shining example of the revolutionary ideals of Rojava applied to a multi ethnic area, will be attacked by Erdogan’s hired jihadi FSA, with US consent.

Syrian-Kurdish women carry the coffin of a female fighter 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. Now the US wants to hand over the town to Turkey’s jihadi terrorists.

After liberation a new Manbij Council was set up, with women and all races and religions fairly represented, and it has prospered and gained popularity despite a near total blockade by Turkey. The Kurdish YPG/YPJ withdrew already in 2016 leaving security to the new Manbij Military Council, now they have also withdrawn their ‘advisors’ from that council, leaving Turkey no excuse for a direct attack.)

But Erdogan needs no excuse as seen in his genocidal invasion of Afrin and dozens of other war crimes. The USA, while claiming to stand for democracy, has sold out the only democratic revolution in the whole of the middle east in order to placate an evil mass murdering dictator and allow him to set up another repressive jihadi protectorate.
