Massive social unrest has hit Brazil in recent months and anarchists are taking the lead. Anarchists have taken to the streets in greater numbers and are using more militant tactics. Mass protests in Brazil erupted in the summer during a protest against public transportation cuts. These first protests attracted a mixed group of people from across the political spectrum, including fascists, but more progressive forces came into the movement as well and changed the discussion.
Brazil’s indigenous movements have been reignited by the recent wave of social unrest. Unions are also going on very militant strikes. The latest account of militant unrest is the protest by the Brazil’s teachers involved in Sindicato Estadual dos Professionais de Educação do Rio de Janeiro (SEPE) and their black-clad anarchist supporters. The anarchists were having militant marches in support of their teachers. This was widely criticized by the mainstream media, who accused “black bloc” anarchists of hijacking a “peaceful teachers’ strike” and turning the demonstrations violent.
The teachers of SEPE had a different opinion: the federation decided unanimously to endorse the anarchist demonstrations. It is important to realize that the teachers’ union endorsement of ”black bloc” tactics exists not just in this union but also in the context of Brazil’s growing anarchist movement. Anarchists in Brazil have also recently called for free public transportation.
The general coordinator of SEPE, Alex Trentino, also said that the Black Blocs were not the cause of conflict, but the police .
According to him, many of the teachers said they were protected by the ’ anarchists against the excessive violence committed by the police. It was also reported that the youth gave first aid to people injured during the confusion.

Always an excellent video to watch.
On April 17, a 23-year-old Yemeni activist and journalist named Farea Al-Muslimi tweeted about a U.S. drone strike on his village, Wessab, which he describes as “the Yemen capital of misery with its beautiful mountains no one from outside remembers.”
In the strike, five alleged members of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) were killed. The U.S. droned Yemen 53 times last year, tripling the number of attacks from 2011, and incurring a civilian casualty rate between 4 to 8.5 percent. On April 23, Al-Muslimi gave stirring testimony at the first U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on the legality of drone wars.(via thepeacefulterrorist)
