(en) Czechoslovak Anarchist Federation - For peace and freedom in Palestine

Date Tue, 08 Jun 2010 11:12:28 +0300

The Czechoslovak Anarchist Federation (CSAF) joined an action organized by the Czech branch of International Solidarity Movement (ISM) on the 5th of June to denounce the Israeli attack on the humanitarian flotilla, and the occupation of Palestine as well. The anarchists brought a banner stating "Anarchists against the wall – solidarity with people of Gaza“. When the march reached the Israeli embassy, a member of CSAF spoke: "Let me greet you and say a few words in the name of the anarchists who joined this action. As the advocates of the idea of free, self -organized and equal society, we feel we have to stand up against totalitarianism, exploitation, intolerant religion, racist delusions and prejudices of all kinds. That is why we are also standing up today, as always, against occupations.

All occupations are alike. It does not matter what are called. The occupation
of Czechia by the Nazi army, the occupation of Chechnya by the Russian army
or the occupation of Gaza by the army of Israel differ a lot, but their
essence remains the same. The militarily stronger force imposes its will on
the occupied area and breaks down the resistance, violent or non-violent.
Only the ordinary people suffer. The hate is escalating. We will never
stand by those calling for hate towards others, just because they have
different skin colour, nationality, different or no religion. There are no
Jews or Arabs for us, but just people abusing their power and people who
want to live in peace. We do not see a significant difference between the
leaders of islamist groups, who do not mind killing innocent people, and
the bosses of Israeli armed forces, doing the same. We stand by the side of
those Jews and Arabs who demonstrate together every Friday in villages
affected by the construction of the monstrous segregating wall on the west
bank. Our Israeli friends from the group Anarchists Against the Wall are
engaged there. Those people, Israeli activists side by side with
Palestinian farmers, are evidence for us that it is possible to stand up to
hate, to the wall, and to occupation. Anti-Semitism is a manifest of
stupidity; occupation is an act of despotism.
We do not wish the Palestinians an independent state, we wish them
