Humanitarian disaster unfolding today: IS encroaches on Kobane on five fronts (tags)
Dire news from northern Syria: The Islamic State is waging a massive offensive against its most hated enemy in Syria, the YPG (People's Defense Units) of Rojava, because they are anticapitalist, open to all religions, they invite women to participate at all levels of the organization, and have been collectivizing northern Syria into councils and workers' cooperatives since the Syrian government withdrew from that region in 2012. The YPG was inspired Kurdish leaders' reading Murray Bookchin and therefore seeks to be nonhierarchical and democratic. They are, incidentally, also the forces who actually rescued the Yesidis from Mount Sinjar, long before the first US airstrike. They truly are the Zapatistas of the east, and they deserve our support.

Iraqis break U.S. siege of Falluja to deliver humanitarian aid! (tags)
Iraqi volunteers drive with humanitarian supplies towards areas under military siege by U.S. occupation forces in the town of Falluja, from depots in a Baghdad suburb April 8, 2004. When masses of ordinary Iraqis defy the occupation army to travel to Falluja with the intent of delivering food and medicine to those under U.S. bombs, it should be obvious that what is occurring in Iraq is a true people's uprising. Those who call the insurgents "Saddam remnants" or "dead enders", are deluding themselves. Resistance comes in many forms (photo - Ali Jasim/Reuters). EMERGENCY IRAQ PROTEST. Friday, April 9 - 5 pm.
