MONA ELTAHAWY

It was one particular event that took place at De Balie (that was brought to my attention on Saturday) which began a closer look for me at the centre and made me question whether I wanted to speak there. I explain my position ??. I hope to return to soon.

7:48 AM – 22 Apr 2019

For those asking “Why cancel your appearance over one event”: 1. That “one event” was bad enough 2. That event inspired a closer look at the centre & what it represents 3. Only white people can play “free speech” & “debate all ideas” game. I am not white. This is not theoretical

THE ASSANGE ARREST IS A WARNING FROM HISTORY

The glimpse of Julian Assange being dragged from the Ecuadorean embassy in London is an emblem of the times. Might against right. Muscle against the law. Indecency against courage. Six policemen manhandled a sick journalist, his eyes wincing against his first natural light in  almost seven years.

FUCK IT, WIPE OUT GAZA, SAYS SPOKESMAN FOR NEW

Mr Lars Faaborg-Andersen
Head of the Delegation
Subject:
Your unacceptable EU-Israel ”promotion” campaign and
the choice of your promotion advocate, mr Avishai Ivri.
Dear Mr Faaborg-Andersen,

”Here’s a strategy that hasn’t be tried out yet:

1000 Arabs killed for each one of our people killed.
I think they owe us 5.000 last week” [1]
When I read those words, I smell but one thing:
An incitement to fascist hatred and genocide.
It may be obvious that people, who ventilate that sort
of horrible thoughts have to be condemned and avoided
by any civilized person and certainly by an organization as
the EU, which boasts of its human rights treaties.
See your own EU Charter of Human Rights and the
Treaty of Lisbon. [2]
Yet you hired the man, mr Avishai Ivri, who uttered those words,
 for a video campaign to present the EU more
”positively” for the Israeli public.

Stadtepartnerschaft Andernach Dimona/Letter to the mayor of Andernach about the relationship with Israeli sister city Dimona

TO THE MAYOR OF ANDERNACH
MR A HUTTEN
Subject:
The alliance between your city Andernach and the Israeli city
Dimona
Dear Mr Hutten,
I’ve recently learnt, that your city, Andernach  and the Israeli city Dimona
are twin cities since 1975. [1]
Not only Dimona, with its nuclear Research Centre, is a threat to peace and
humanity [2], there is a horrendous racism, reason enough
 for you to break all ties immediately.
To that racism I refer later.
First this:
ISRAELI OCCUPATION, OPPRESSION AND HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS
Dimona, as a city  is not only part of the Israeli occupation State,
but by its nuclear involvement also an destructive military guardian
of the occupation.
Occupation State Israel is systematically violating the rights of the
occupied Palestinians.
The list is long, but here some horrible examples:

UN GA RESOLUTION 3246, 1974
Your Excellency
Hereby I draw your attention for the following:
I have learnt with astonishment and indignation from the Swedish
police documents, including the Palestinian flag among known
terror symbols.
I consider this as a flagrant violation of the Palestinian right of
selfdetermination and the right of resistance against the Israeli
occupation and I request to you to use your influence to remove
the Palestinian flag and any Palestinian organization from the
Swedish police documents list. [1]

[Article Peter Storm]/Dear Cheerleaders, we need to have a chat about imperialism

Saturday, 4 April, 2015

Written for Libcom, and just published on my blog there.

In Rojava, in the North of Syria, Kurdish fighters are struggling against IS, Islamic State. That struggle deserves out interest, because it is not just a fight between armed groups fighting for territory but at the same time a struggle for a different social and political order, called Democratic Confederalism. Direct democracy, a central rol of women in the fight and in the running of society, space for people of different ethnic backgound to express themselves and co-determine their own fate, libertarian socialist inspiration and a clear break with the Marxist-Leninist and nationalist orthodoxies of the Kurdish movements involved , the PYD in Syria, the PKK in Turkey with which the PYD is connected… all this gives many people reason to cheer the events as an important revolution – the Rojava Revolution. Others, however, are less convinced, some – myself not excluded – have serious reservations. Exchanges of opinions, sometimes furious ones, have been going on for months now. What follows is a contribution to this polemic.
