Here in Norway we had twenty-five ambulances to block the way leading
to the Israeli embassy (at least a couple of times). This was one of
the rather cool actions workers organized here in Oslo (the capital of
Norway that is), and makes a rather powerful -though symbolic-
manifestation of how the IDF are hempering the work of ambulances.
Otherwise it's mostly talking, resolusions, declerations, endorsements
of demonstrations (not substanstial participation though), etc. The
main workers organization -"LO"- are also delivering news -something
which is actually very important!. Last but not least, LO has a
humanitarian (as in filanthropic) organization which delivers
aid in form of food, health personell, water engineers and more,
which allieviate the usual trot for ordinary workers. Needless
to point out for you: This last "action" doesn't change the
development, it just relieves a minimum of hardtime, and it
doesn't engage the grassroots.

The Norwegian authorities also condems the Israleli states
behaviour, but continue trading weapons (actually it was
Norwegian shipowners which illegaly and in secrecy supplied
heavy water (a very important raw material for making Israels
A-bombs!)). Of course we must keep pressure up, but declarations
and stuff from the trade unions IS NOT ENOUGH! Only direct
action in form of selective boycotts (we want to hurt the
Israeli state, NOT our fellow workers!), strikes etc. will
change the development. (Here in Norway it's mainly about the
transportations of those weapons, but in U.S. it's LOTS of
commodities and governmental aid to the zionist state). I wish
you the very best luck!

However, we cannot totally change the palestinian challenge
from the outside -the main driving force must be palestinian
and israeli workers united in fight -this we should seek to
alleviate.

By the way; we got a visit from a guy called Ariel from the
Anarchists Against the Wall initiative a week ago. He stopped
by this radical youth-subculture-squat (Blitz) to show a film
screening of the actions against the wall. It was a video which
indeed made me very angry and combative. You should definately
show it sometime.... It seems that these people are brave people
working hard -they truly deserve our support. Not only moral, but
also practical, if you've got the resources.

Currently it seems they are focusing more on the acute task of
saving the villages which "stand in the way" for the Racist wall
(at least that's how it seems -I don't live there, and ain't got
a satisfying informations). If we could make better contacts with
them, maybe we could influence them to take the strictly nescessary
action towards workers actions.

Lastly: I feel obliged to stress that one of the very most important
regions for classwar is in US -not Israel! Use your scarce resources
were you are!

Think globally - act locally!
