The new offer from the bank of the oligarch of Igor Kolomoysky — recently appointed governor of Dnipropetrovsk region in Ukraine.
SPECIAL OFFER from the Ukrainian PrivatBank: $ 10,000 for a Russian soldier

The Ukrainian PrivatBank, which, as the name shows is a… well… private bank, is posting huge billboards offering any Ukrainian $ 10,000 for a Russian soldier… The offer doesn’t mention whether the soldier should be dead or alive.
Here a banner in Donetsk & Lugansk regions today, from the Twitter account of Ruthen.
Wait a minute… 10,000 Dollars? Why don’t they count in Euros? We thought Ukrainians were rather pro-European.

Doesn’t Ukraine use the hryvnia? Plus, PrivatBank does bank in euros.

Interesting that the investigators found that “authorities and security forces” (e.g., government) are complicit. I wonder how they found this information (or if they assumed it)?Anyone have this report? If so, can you kindly send it to me?

During the 1981 Irish hunger strike led by Bobby Sands, a statement was smuggled out of Nafha Prison from the Palestinian prisoners behind the wire and sent to the families of the 10 men who died. Below is the text of that message: "To the families of the martyrs oppressed by the British ruling class. To the families of Bobby Sands and his martyred comrades. We, revolutionaries of the Palestinian people who are under the terrorist rule of Zionism, write you this letter from the desert prison of Nafha. We extend our salutes and solidarity with you in the confrontation against the oppressive terrorist rule enforced upon the Irish people by the British ruling elite. We salute the heroic struggle of Bobby Sands and his comrades, for they have sacrificed the most valuable possession of any human being. They gave their lives for freedom. From here in Nafha prison, where savage snakes and desert sands penetrate our cells, from here under the yoke of Zionist occupation, we stand alongside you. From behind our cell bars, we support you, your people and your revolutionaries who have chosen to confront death. Since the Zionist occupation, our people have been living under the worst conditions Conditions. Our militants who have chosen the road of liberty and chosen to defend our land, people and dignity, have been suffering for many years. In the prisons, we are confronting Zionist oppression and their systematic application of torture. Sunlight does not enter our cell. Basic necessities are not provided. Yet we confront the Zionist hangmen, the enemies of life. Many of our militant comrades have been martyred under torture by the fascists allowing them to bleed to death. Others have been martyred because Israeli prison administrators do not provide needed medical care. The noble and just hunger strike is not in vain. In our struggle against the occupation of our homeland, for freedom from the new Nazis, it stands as a clear symbol of the historical challenge against the terrorists. Our people in Palestine and in the Zionist prisons are struggling as your people are struggling against the British occupation and we will both continue until victory. On behalf of the prisoners of Nafha, we support your struggle and cause of freedom against English domination, against Zionism and against fascism in the world. “

1981 Solidarity Message from Palestinian Prisoners to Irish Hunger Strikers

Report: Hundreds killed while defending environment, land rights
April 16, 2014

Hundreds of people have been killed while defending the environment and land rights around the world, international monitors said in a report released Tuesday, highlighting what they called a culture of impunity surrounding the deaths.

At least 908 people were killed in 35 countries from 2002 to 2013 during disputes over industrial logging, mining, and land rights – with Latin America and Asia-Pacific being particularly hard-hit – according to the study from Global Witness, a London-based nongovernmental organization that says it works to expose economic networks behind conflict, corruption and environmental destruction.

Only 10 people have ever been convicted over the hundreds of deaths, the report said.

The rate of such deaths has risen sharply – with an average of two activists killed each week – over the past four years as competition for the world’s natural resources has accelerated, Global Witness said in the report titled “Deadly Environment.”

“There can be few starker or more obvious symptoms of the global environmental crisis than a dramatic upturn in the killings of ordinary people defending rights to their land or environment,” said Oliver Courtney, a senior campaigner for Global Witness.

“This rapidly worsening problem is going largely unnoticed, and those responsible almost always get away with it,” Courtney said.

The report’s release followed a dire warning by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which said global warming is driving humanity toward unprecedented risk due to factors such as food and water insecurity. Global Witness said this puts environmental activists in more danger than ever before.

Land rights are central to the violence, as “companies and governments routinely strike secretive deals for large chunks of land and forests to grow cash crops,” the report said. When residents refuse to give up their land rights to mining operations and the timber trade, they are often forced from their homes, or worse, it said.

The study ranked Brazil as the most dangerous place to be an environmentalist, with at least 448 killings recorded.

One case that especially shocked the country and the global environmental movement involved the 2011 killings of environmentalists Jose Claudio Ribeira da Silva and his wife, Maria do Espirito Santo da Silva.

“The couple had denounced the encroachment of illegal loggers in the reserve and had previously received threats against their lives,” the report said.

Masked men gunned down the couple near a sustainable reserve where they had worked for decades producing nuts and natural oils. The killers tore off one of Jose Claudio’s ears as proof of his execution.

I remember you saying you were getting into Especifismo/Specifism recently. Can you give a brief explanation of what it means and what you like/dislike about it?

class-struggle-anarchism:

Yeah, I do like it, it’s a kind of platformism which has been hammered out in practice in places like Rio, with more emphasis on working within social movements and being integrated with the community you’re working in at a basic level… the idea being to advocate anarchist ideas and ways of working  (direct action, anti-representation etc) without seeking to control or lead the movements, just influencing them through active participation and example, building a reputation for being trustworthy, hardworking and militant, undermining reformist leaderships by ignoring them and initiating grassroots direct action and stuff like that. I like it because it’s positive and active, contrary to a widespread tendency in anarchism to just fold your arms and tut disapprovingly from the sidelines because whatever movement isn’t leaderless enough or whatever…we can’t spread our ideas among people if we cut ourselves of from them, why should anyone listen to a bunch of aloof snobs who reckon they’re too good to do the boring leg work of community organising…. There’s obviously much more too it than that, and i’m no expert on it but what I know I read in this text from the FARJ, I’d recommend everyone have a look because it’s good shit
