Kestenberg, 88; Studied Survivors of Holocaust  “Dr. Judith Silberpfennig Kestenberg, a psychoanalyst specializing in child development and the emotional state of Holocaust survivors and their children, died Saturday at her home in Sands Point, N.Y. She was 88. …” — Wolfgang Saxon (New York Times), 21 Jan 99 <story684.txt>                                 – – – – –                  WEB SITES OF INTEREST TO ANTI-FASCISTS                        “LEFT-GREEN PERSPECTIVES”  “Left Green Perspectives is the newsletter of the Social Ecology Project in Burlington, Vermont. Founded in 1986 as Green Perspectives, this theoretical newsletter dedicated to exploring left-libertarian issues and movements in North America and Europe. Its particular focus is on the new politics of libertarian municipalism, as developed by Murray Bookchin.”  [Bookchin’s supporters have published top-rate material documenting fascist components of the environmental movement. You might want to check “‘Ecology’ and the Modernization of Fascism in the German Ultra- right,” by Janet Biehl, 1995 <afdoc004.txt>, “Fascist Ecology: The ‘Green Wing’ of the Nazi Party and its Historical Antecedents,” by Peter Staudenmaier, 1995 <afdoc005.txt>, and “Militia Fever: The Fallacy of ‘Neither Left nor Right’,” by Janet Biehl, Green Perspectives, A Social Ecology Publication, #26, Apr 96 <afdoc024.txt>. All are at: <ftp://ftp.nyct.net/pub/users/tallpaul/docs/anti-fa/>.  [The Bookchinite material is worth a look even if you, as I, do not agree with their particular theories in other areas. The tendency is almost unique in the Green movement for their honesty and historical research about fascism. Too often, Greens deny that there is *any* fascist aspect in environmentalism. Biehl, especially, is to be commended for her rejection of this notion and detailed research that benefits the broad, pluralistic anti-fascist struggle. —  tallpaul]  “Co-edited by Bookchin and Janet Biehl, the periodical has also published critical analyses of mystical, antihumanist, and postmodernist trends in the ecology movement and in contemporary culture at large, including the reemergence of ultraright and fascist ideologies and groups in Germany, Russia, England, and the United States. Almost alone among North American periodicals, it has critically traced the retreat of the German Greens into social democracy.  “Green Perspectives presented translations of articles from libertarian, ecological, and radical left European periodicals like Schwarzer Faden, Direkte Aktion, koLinX, and Radici, as well as interviews with leading left-ecological European radicals. Additionally, it features ongoing reports on social ecology activities around the world, and reviews of books of significant interest.  “In 1998 the editors renamed the periodical Left Green Perspectives. ‘The word green has been cheapened today,’ the editors explained, ‘so much so that it is not only a liberal parliamentary description but part of the language of corporations. We earnestly believe that a revolutionary Left has to come into existence and we are dedicated to fostering its development’.”  “To visit the Left Green Perspectives, point your browser to <http://ise.rootmedia.org/lgp/>”                                 – – – – –                  THE MULTIRACIAL ACTIVIST and NEWSLETTER  “The Multiracial Activist, an activist journal dedicated to the struggle for and preservation of civil rights for multiracial and biracial individuals and interracial couples/families, has launched an email newsletter, The Multiracial Activist Newsletter.” <http://www.multiracial.com/>  ———————————————————————-  The Internet Anti-Fascist: Wednesday, 27 January 99 FTP Supplement #96 (#213): CNN & Claims of U.S. Nerve Gas Use: Part 2 13) Mike Billington (United Press International), “Panel disputes CNN      sarin gas story,” 23 Jun 98 14) Cathy Burke (N.Y.
