Meta considers labelling the word "Zionist" as hate speech
"Given the increase in polarized public discourse due to events in the Middle East, we believe it's important to assess our guidance for reviewing posts that use the term Zionist," a Meta spokesperson said in response to an AFP query. "While the term Zionist often refers to a person's ideology, which is not a protected characteristic, it can also be used to refer to Jewish or Israeli people."

In bid to curb immigration, France to scrap birthright citizenship in Mayotte
Located close to the impoverished Comoro islands off the East African coast, the former French colony has become the centre of fierce social unrest, with many residents blaming undocumented immigration for the deteriorating conditions. Much poorer than mainland France, Mayotte has been shaken by gang violence and social unrest for decades. The situation has recently worsened amid a water shortage.

The European Communist Action stands by the side of the struggling farmers in Europe
The mass farmers’ protests that are taking place in many European countries, such as Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Greece, prove that the policies followed by the EU and the anti-popular governments, such as the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) and the “green” transition, have caused acute problems of economic survival for farmers and stockbreeders. Rural incomes have been hit by the huge increase in production costs, which are high to ensure the monopoly superprofits of the business groups, such as those in the energy sector, while the burdens of the imperialist war in Ukraine are being shifted onto the popular strata. Big traders, big agri-business and finance, making superprofits due to CAP market and trade rules, plunder toiling farmers and force them to sell their products at very low prices.Moreover, due to capital concentration and the consequent restructuring, the survival of toiling farmers is called into question.

There’s No Such Thing as a Free Helicopter Ride
That Sebastián Piñera should die in a helicopter is a case of unsurpassable poetic justice. “Free helicopter rides” has long been a meme among fascists inspired by the extrajudicial murders of leftists that the Argentine and Chilean governments carried out. The personal helicopter pilot of Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet openly admitted that he repeatedly murdered prisoners by throwing them into the ocean from his helicopter. As head of state, Piñera inherited and perpetuated Pinochet’s legacy, forcing capitalism on the Chilean population despite brave and widespread resistance. This is not the first time that we have outlived our oppressors—and it will not be the last. Below, we share a statement from our dear comrades in Chile on this historic occasion.

Your Wars! Our Dead! “Sir! No Sir!”
We present here three texts (which we have translated into French) originally published on the initiative of the cluster discussion “Balkan Anarchists Against War” at the Balkan Anarchist Bookfair which took place in Ljubljana, Slovenia in July 2023 (BAB 2023). We have a number of things to say about both the general framework in which this discussion took place and the texts themselves. First of all, let’s set out the reasons why we didn’t physically attend this bookfair, after corresponding with the organizers and discussing with several comrades around us who were asking themselves whether or not to go. The main drawback was the position (or the lack of a clear position) the BAB 2023 organizers finally adopted on the anarchist movement’s attitude towards the war in Ukraine. The crucial question we all worry about is the support of some anarchists but also of whole organizations for the Ukrainian side in the current war and the space that could be given to them in BAB.
