On the occasion of the International day of anarchist solidarity with the non-violent Palestinian struggle against the occupation and with the Israeli refusniks on 22nd October 2004, the FdCA has prepared a 70-page booklet on the struggle against the Wall in Palestine. We invite groups, organizations and individuals to download the pamphlet, which can then be printed and distributed during actions on 22nd October. The booklet is entirely in English, though an Italian version is available from the FdCA. The pamphlet can be downloaded in PDF format from http://www.fdca.it/wall/media/wall_english.zip (approx. 750kb zipped)

Hmm... the Federation of Communist Anarchists. I don't think if they were fighting for air, immortality, steak and cheese sandwiches, or even topless joggers that I would ever be prompted to join this organization. Is it enough that they protest the Israeli Castle? Pshaw. That's not enough of a reason to join a Communist group. Pamphlets are easy to make. What are Italian Communists doing that you can't do yourself with an office photocopier? No one is that starved for pamphlets.

And what about that Italian complicity in the IMC hard drive seizure? Does joining one of Italy's Communist orgs make or break your credibility?

Hey Sherlock, this is an anarchist-communist group... as in they are anarchists. Not a Marxist-Leninist "Communist" group. Big difference.
Federazione dei Comunisti Anarchici? Speaks for itself.

Oh, you people are simply great. How does it help the "cause" of the Palestinians OR the Israelis (whichever flavor you prefer)?

International Federation of Communist Anarchists? Why would any self respecting Communist (is there such a thing?) associate with any group whose name contains the word "anarchist"? Communism has been tried (and failed) on a grand scale, and still governs China and Cuba and North Korea. IT DOESNT WORK....FOR LONG.

As you have heard me say before, anarchism is simply. (insert your negative descriptive adjective here). There are simply no workable parts of that philosophy which are compatible with any known governmental system.

Communist Anarchist.... Why doesnt that make sense to me?

How can an anarchist, who is against hierarchy, be part of a "Federation" whose goals are determined from a centralized locus? Who are the leaders? How are they chosen. HOW can any element of organization exist in this group and have it STILL be considered "anarchist?

How can communists incorporate ANY aspect of anarchy in a doctrine which requires extreme organization and balancing in order to work? Communism must be ENFORCED upon a population, as it could never arise on its own.

Add all of the above, and place it in the context of a conservative United States, preparing to choose between two Presidential candidates who are pro war, pro Israel, and pro America? You might as well have produced a pamphlet entitled "Death Row Convicts against Stays of Execution".
