You arrived in Israel in the mid-1980s, and now, 38.5% of families from Ethiopia live below the poverty line, against an average of 14.3% for all Israeli Jews . You are only 2% of the Israeli population, yet you are 40% of prison inmates. You’re pejoratively called the “Falasha”. Since your childhood, you have suffered mockery, beatings and moral violence because your skin color is not the same. Because you’re “bad Israelis” and “bad Jews”. But these days, you are no longer simply collateral damage of the old dreams of the movement of “national liberation” or Zionist expansionist Israel today; you are no longer mere victims – you hurt fifty cops, attacked the town with stones, and although the mounted police fired stun grenades to disperse you and to protect the municipality of Tel Aviv, you blocked one of the main motorways.

No matter who is elected, we must never stop rioting. Even if every most promising progressive gets elected or every most disconcerting conservative gets elected, we must set the streets on fire. The argument about voting or not voting is useless. Anarchists have historically focused their efforts on direct action or direct democracy and progressive reforms have only redirected revolutionary potential into institutional squabbles. Let this year be the year that the riots started and never stopped.

The 4th annual anti-capitalist May Day saw an unprecedented turn out of over 20,000 (not a typo and most likely way more) radicals, queers, ravers, anarchists, partiers, socialists and people from all walks of life. May Day, International Worker’s Day, is a day to celebrate our power to resist the exploitation of capitalist elites. In this spirit we showed we don’t need the support of corporate sponsors, the city, or the police to throw the most badass street party Vancouver has seen in a long time.

Amid grumblings that the newly renovated St. Roch Market was designed more for upscale shoppers than long-time neighborhood residents, vandals on Friday splattered the building with pink paint, smashed more than a dozen of its windows and smeared it with anti-gentrification slogans.
