The Poem for Which Dareen Tatour’s Under House Arrest: ‘Resist, My People, Resist Them’

Resistir é um direito, um imperativo de consciência e nunca será um facto punível.

Arabic Literature (in English)

The year 2015, according to a new report by Hamleh (The Arab Center for the Advancement of Social Media), saw a surge in the number of Palestinians being arrested, in Israel, on the charge of “incitement through social media.”:

tatourOne of the most prominent cases is of the poet Dareen Tatour, who was arrested last October, charged in November, and spent several months in prison before being placed under house arrest — with no access to the internet — in January. She is currently confined to a Tel Aviv apartment and had her first court hearing this month, charged for Facebook postings and a poem posted to YouTube.

According to Nadim Nashef of Al-Shabaka, “The Palestinian Prisoners Club, a non-governmental organization dealing with prisoners’ rights, estimates that more than 150 arrests took place between October and February 2016 based on Facebook posts expressing opinions on the uprising.”

This is What “Ukrainian Catholics” and “Ukrainian Orthodox” Support as Institutions… Have NOTHING To Do With Them

Voices from Russia

The so-called “Ukrainian Catholic Church” and “Ukrainian Orthodox Church” support the murderous junta in Kiev. They say nothing about the fascist cabal’s criminal targeting of innocent civilians in the Donbass. Have nothing to do with them or their affairs. Don’t patronise the businesses of their parishioners and don’t go to any event sponsored by them or held on their premises. If you do otherwise, you spit on the suffering kids of the Donbass. That’s the way it is…

“Teses Sobre a Visita do Papa”, por António José Forte

Portal Anarquista

Numa altura em que faltam exactamente 2 meses para que o papa visite Portugal e o seu espectáculo maior que dá pelo nome de Fátima, com a lotação esgotada e os preços a fazerem corar de vergonha os administradores de outros espaços de culto e luxo, nada melhor do que trazer, de novo, para a ribalta este texto do poeta surrealista António José Forte, publicado no jornal “A Batalha” há 35 anos, aquando da visita de um outro papa ao mesmo espectáculo, em cena desde 1917 e que bons cobres e dividendos ideológicos tem proporcionado à troika formada pelo Estado, pelo Capital e pela Igreja, os três na sua santa missão de injectarem “esperança” entre os explorados.

Los años sin perdón, los años de guerra

Uma imagem de uma obra de Vlady está permanente no ecran do meu computador. Gosto do trabalho fascinante e da imagem, melhor dito das imagens, que me desvenda. Por este caminho solitário entre leon, Victor e cada vez que o contemplo uns minutos.!

En la Ciudad de los Vientos

Ya he escrito en este espacio sobre la obra del escritor ruso Víctor Serge, nacido en Bruselas en 1890 y muerto en la Ciudad de México en 1947, víctima de un ataque cardiaco cuando abordaba un taxi. En español conocemos poco de su obra, que Serge escribió en francés; no hace mucho que su novela “El caso Tulayev” fue traducida a nuestra lengua por David Huerta. Esa fue la novela que comenté, que por cierto es extraordinaria.

Hace poco, en una librería independiente en Oak Park, me topé con un estante de volúmenes publicados por The New York Review of Books, buenísima colección que incluye títulos de autores poco conocidos en Estados Unidos. Entre esa colección había tres novelas de Serge, incluyendo la de Tulayev. Adquirí “Unforgiving Years (Los años sin perdón)” atraído tanto por el título como por mi conocimiento – si bien limitado – del autor.

“What if this is not the darkness of the tomb but the darkness of the womb? BREATH & PUSH AMERICA!! (VIDEO)

will you please think about this?

Tent of Abraham

then-and-nowIn the days and weeks after the election I like many Americans experienced a profound sense of despair and depression.  I considered leaving the country. I shut off the TV and stopped reading the newspaper.  I could no longer bring myself to lead a bi-weekly discussion about current events at a senior adult residence; reality was too painful to discuss, tears and rage came too easily.

The Women’s March on January 21st was the first light I saw at the end of a dark tunnel; millions of Americans gave a loud cogent ‘no’ to the anger, intolerance, xenophobia and chauvinistic nationalism that seated a totally unqualified,  unstable narcissist in the Oval Office.

Then again on Saturday, January 28 millions of my countrymen without any planning or pre-organization took to the streets and appeared at America’s airports to say loudly and clearly NO to Trump’s on immigration ban of immigrants from 7…

Gazeta Wyborcza Reported Despair Amongst Ukrainian Soldiers in the Donbass

Seguramente o novo poder polaco não deixará a Gazeta Wyborcza viver muito mais tempo.
O jornalismo independente não interessa aos poderes actuais.

Voices from Russia

00 Job. dead ukrainian soldiers, Krasny Partizan 01. 06.06.15

_________________________________________

The minder of the Polish journalists was a junta officer with the call sign “Fidel”; he graduated from officers school four months ago and immediately went to war. He said that the positions of patriot forces were just 500 metres from those of the junta forces. That’s a very small distance, so patriot snipers are an increasing threat to junta soldiers. Junta militants told the journalist:

The day before your arrival, a heavy shell struck and damaged an APC. Our positions are constantly under fire from heavy automatic weapons and grenade launchers, and at night, mortars also join in, but our units only fire in cases where there’s an immediate threat to life.

One of the junta officers complained to the Polish journalists:

We have to just watch and wonder what to expect, when they fire at our soldiers. These trenches have many fragments of unexploded ordnance. Therefore, it’s…
