Comrade Mikalai Dziadok cuts his abdomen and arms in prison as protest against torture (Belarus)

May 27th, 2015

Mikalai Dziadok protested against tortures by prison staff.

Viasna human rights centre learnt it from Valeria Khotsina, the wife of the political prisoner. Mikalai Dziadok was transferred to correctional facility No.9 in Horki
for his new prison term on May 12. On May 13, he was thrown into a
punishment cell for five days. On May 19, he was transferred to a
solitary confinement cell. Mikalai Dziadok spent the night in a very
cold cell and asked to be transferred to another cell.

On the morning of May 20, the political prisoner cut his abdomen and
arms to draw attention of prison officers. He received medical attention
in a medical unit and was returned to the same cold cell where he
remained until May 26. According to Valeria Khotsina, her husband
already received four sanctions.

Mikalai Dziadok has served 4.5 years of imprisonment for alleged
destructive actions against official buildings. He was to be released on
March 3, 2015. On February 26, the court of Mahilou’s Leninski district
sentenced the political prisoners to an additional year in a maximum
security correctional facility for violating article 411 of the Criminal
Code (disobeying orders of prison staff). The court of appeal upheld the
verdict on April 30.

Contra el Narcotrafico y el Estado Policial ($hile)

May 27th, 2015



Contra el narcotráfico y el Estado Policial
La droga y la policía son la misma porquería: Que la autodefensa y
venganza se extienda
A no cederles ni un milímetro a los traficantes colaboradores y
cómplices con la represión.

El 14 de Mayo del 2015, distintas protestas estudiantiles se realizan a
lo largo de Chile. En Valparaíso un altercado por rayar una muralla,
hace que el miserable Giuseppe Briganti decida disparar una pistola 9
milímetros contra la multitud, dos jóvenes que participaban en la
protesta son muertos al ser alcanzados por las balas del bastardo.
Una sociedad enferma que avala la defensa de la propiedad privada, la
mantención del orden como un valor fundamental y justifica las
ejecuciones a quienes perturben la paz del cementerio, se alegra de las
balas de Giuseppe. La actitud matonesca, la necesidad de controlar el
territorio y mercado de drogas así como mantener la “tranquilidad”
defender la propiedad privada hacen que Giussepe dispare hacia el grupo,
sin apuntar a nadie en especifico… Simplemente Giussepe dispara, dispara
una y otra vez contra “la protesta”, cualquiera que se encontraba ahí
podría haber muerto, pero esta vez le toco a dos jóvenes.

Todo nuestro odio para Giuseppe y el poderío de los narcotraficantes
-contra quienes los sustentan, los defienden, financian y avalan-.
¡Ataca al Dominio en todas sus formas!

Attack on the Autonomous workers’ union activist (Ukraine)

May 27th, 2015

On Saturday, May 23, an activist of Autonomous Workers’ Union was attacked in the downtown Kyiv. The motives for the attack were political. The attackers had set up a meeting with the artist Dmitry M., posing as customers for his services. When Dmitry arrived, the two guys menacingly suggested to “go and talk somewhere else” and attacked him outright after his refusal. The fight was over in no time, as some passers-by intervened — the attackers withdrew, shouting their excuses: “He was the first to snitch on us on the Internet!”

The activist wasn’t injured; however, this act cannot be ignored. This set-up meeting was arranged neither by the police agents nor by boneheads, but by our Belarusian “comrades” – former political prisoner Alyaksandr Franzkevich and his friend Maxim aka “The Belarusian”.

Molotov case: An 8 month update from The Eric King Defense Committee (USA)

May 27th, 2015

1265011_10151766560676743_1651319365_o

Report from comrades in USA solidarity group – Respect and love for Eric!


Eric is facing four felony counts at the Federal level
:

Count 1: Used a dangerous instrument to cause death or danger [18 U.S.C. § 111(a)(1) and (b)]—maximum 20 years in prison

Count 2: Attempted to damage or destroy a building by fire or explosives [18 U.S.C. § 844(i)]—minimum 5 years, maximum 20 years in prison

Count 3: Explosive used in commission of a felony [18 U.S.C. 844(h)]—maximum 10 years in prison (to be served after any other sentences are complete)

Count 4: Possession of an unregistered firearm (i.e., Molotov cocktail) [26 U.S.C. 5861(d)]—maximum 10 years in prison

The state alleges that Eric was responsible for an attempted firebombing on a Kansas government building. If convicted he faces anywhere from 5 to 30 years in Federal prison. His trial is set for Monday, July 13th at 9am.

The state exists to dominate and oppress the people. Rebellion exists to challenge and ultimately destroy the state. When the state singles out people to punish for acts of rebellion, we must support them as part of our struggle against this oppressive apparatus. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Criminals for Peace’ – Chapter 1 of ‘Radical Peace: People Refusing War’ By William T. Hathaway (USA)

May 27th, 2015

325 presents the first chapter of the inspiring book ‘Radical Peace: People Refusing War’, which, according to the author, William T. Hathaway, one of our regular readers enjoying our site, is “the true stories of anarchists who have moved beyond demonstrations and petitions into direct action, becoming criminals for peace by defying the government’s laws and impeding its capacity to kill”. The author is a US special forces combat veteran turned anarchist peace activist. Whilst it shouldn’t need to be repeated that 325 embraces not only revolutionary violence but a diversity of tactics, we “can understand those who hate violence to the point of wanting to banish it from their life; would never kill, would never use force to make themselves felt; those who, because of their own character and aptitude, prefer not to have recourse to it” [see Escalation].

Criminals for Peace
Introduction to the book
RADICAL PEACE: People Refusing War
By William T. Hathaway

How do we defuse an aggressive culture? How do we end an endless war?

A new group of war resisters, deserters, and anarchists from the USA, Europe, Iraq, and Afghanistan offers a variety of answers to these conundrum questions. In opposing militarism we’ve moved beyond demonstrations and petitions into direct action, flouting the government’s laws and impeding its ability to kill. As criminals for peace, we’re defying the PATRIOT Act and working underground in secret cells to undermine the US military empire.

I’m the spokesperson for the group because I live outside the “homeland” and as a Special Forces combat veteran I’m used to being under attack.

We’ve become outlaws out of despair. Obama’s morphing into a war president was the last straw. By continuing the aggression he’d promised to stop, he’s shown himself to be just another imperialist killing thousands of people to maintain US power. He portrayed his latest plan for Afghanistan as progress towards peace, but it really paves the way for long-term fighting as we now have in Iraq: US bases and support troops will stay indefinitely to prop up the local army. The killing will continue, but mercenaries and local soldiers will be doing most of it while the USA provides back-up. Just as many people will die, but far fewer will be Americans, so the war will disappear from the news and people’s minds. This is not a plan for peace but for endless war.

Marco Camenisch: Psychiatry as a weapon of repression against a radical prisoner – en/gr/de (Switzerland)

May 27th, 2015

Marco Camenisch: ROS – psychiatry assumes the power to define the execution of probation and correctional law

The office for probation and corrections services of the cantonal Office for the Execution of Penal Sentences and Justice sabotages all efforts aiming at easing the situation of imprisonment of Marco or to grant parole for him. The office for enforcement 3 (SMV3) uses a clearly political argumentation: As an unbroken anarchist he can not be released from prison, and by drawing up an ROS report (risk-oriented sanctions enforcement), a kind of “Materials Testing Institution”, they acquire new arguments.

For some time the penal system is being aggressively colonized by psychiatry and psychology in Zurich as in prisons elsewhere. The report of the forensic psychiatric department from 31.3.2015, provides a “risk-oriented sanctions enforcement” assessment, a new evaluating development, since the report explicitly uses psychiatric argumentation only and for the first time formulates specific “recommendations”. Urbaniok’s psychiatry distributes contact prohibitions – defines political distancing or rather political renunciation as a requirement for conditional release. The big word is and remains the “crime-promoting ideology”! Read the rest of this entry »

Anti-regime demos in London and Cardiff as Tories take power (UK)

May 10th, 2015

Thousands of protesters laid siege to Downing Street and marched on the Conservatives’ campaign HQ and Parliament, causing havoc which ranged across central London in a disruptive demo which saw at least 17 people arrested and a number of police injured in clashes. A small black bloc was active on the frontlines attacking police and defending the demo from police attacks. Eventually the demo was kettled and the crowd processed. There was a simultaneous event in Cardiff, Wales, and an anti-fascist demo in Walthamstow against the English Defence League, fascist-nationalist group.

FAI-IRF claim incendiary attack against a Chilectra substation in Santiago ($hile)

May 8th, 2015

From Insurrection News:

An Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI) – International Revolutionary Front (IRF) cell based in Chile calling itself Grupo Kapibara have released a communique claiming responsibility for an incendiary attack against a substation of the electricity provider Chilectra in Santiago on 06.05.15.

According to the communique a timed incendiary device containing 1.2 liters of gasoline and 400 grams of polystyrene was placed in a room inside the substation. The timing mechanism was set to activate half an hour after placement of the device but for unknown reasons activation did not occur until several hours later.

The communique states that the action was carried out in order to strike a destructive blow against the techno-industrial system in defense of Mother Earth. The communique also contains expressions of solidarity with the anarchist nihilist prisoner Spyros Mandylas held captive in Greece, the comrades Nataly, Juan and Guillermo on hunger strike in Chile and the comrades Sol, Tato and Javier, also imprisoned in Chile. Mention is also made of fallen anarchist Punky Mauri who died in 2009 while attempting to place a bomb at the prison warden’s school in Santiago, Chile.

Bristol: Banner drop for prisoners (UK)

May 8th, 2015

325 receives and transmits:

Our greetings go out to Em, who just turned 34 behind bars after laying traps for
police cars.

One banner read:

‘Happy Birthday to Anarchist Prisoner Emma Sheppard! – Down with all cages!’

We know what a boot looks like,
When seen from underneath,
We know the philosophy of boots…

Soon we will invade like weeds,
Everywhere but slowly;
The captive plants will rebel
With us, fences will topple,
Brick walls will ripple and fall

There will be no more boots
Meanwhile we eat dirt
and sleep; we are waiting
under your feet.

When we say attack
You will hear nothing
At first

- Margaret Atwood “Song of the Worms”

The other banner:

‘Capital is ‘Green’ as Nuclear is ‘Safe’ – Against Industrial Society – Hands Off
Billy, Silvia, and Costas.’

In reference to 3 anarchist ecologists who the Italian state want to re-try over an
unsuccessful action in Switzerland, and the capitalist marketing ploy of Bristol as
the European Green Capital.

Both banners were hung over the M32 during the morning rush hour on Thursday 30th April.

Recently word has reached us of international police collaboration in the UK
targeting action or publication groups allegedly connected to a thwarted plan to
liberate guerrillas from dungeons in Greece. Solidarity to the underground who, from
Scotland to Bristol to London, head out with hackles raised and spray-paint, rocks
or slingshots in their pockets and blazing hearts never extinguished. A wink of
complicity for those that defiantly acted for freedom and who got away.

State repression is a hurdle for any liberation tendency. Here in England
anarchists, outlaws, and would be fighters with the Kurdish resistance to ISIS (see
the case of Shilan Ozcelik) can all attest to that. We call attention to the common
thirst for freedom in all these cases. May struggle continue in every form that is
necessary. Regardless of the outcome of the election pantomime we are ungovernable.

Fuck the Vote! Prepare for Class War! – Demo at Tory HQ 2pm SAT 9th May – London (UK)

May 7th, 2015

Vote or don’t vote or spoil your ballot paper, it will make no difference. Politicians will sell you and take you for their personal power. Elections are just a choice between spokesmen of the rich. We don’t have to settle for it. We’ve got to get rid of the rich!

Class War candidate for Michael Fabricant’s safe Tory Lichfield seat, Andy Bennetts, said: “We’re having more of a pantomime than an election, where career minded politicos try to make a good impression with their party in the hope of being selected to fight a seat they have a chance of winning in the future.

“No one is contesting this election to win. Not even us. This election is a lot of bollocks. Don’t vote – it is a waste of time.”

Class War took to the streets on May Day, sweeping through the citadel of class exploitation: the City of London. The police could not contain the Fuck Parade mob. Hundreds of class warriors closed down Commercial Street, Tower Bridge, London Bridge and marched to the squats of Soho, where the battle rages against gentrification.

The City was brought to a standstill. It didn’t need party bureaucracies and vanguards. It was just the will of the raging mass.

The streets are our ballot box. The mob are our votes. Our class is our party.

Get out. There will be no Government on Friday. It’s ours. Let’s take it.

Class War is supporting a post-election action by London Black Revs. In a statement, LBR says: “The polls suggest a hung parliament; where no party wins a majority of seats. If so there will be a scramble for power, with the Tories and Labour trying to cobble together enough MPs from different parties to form a government. If they call a legitimate government, they will force through the worst cuts since the Second World War.

“We think the Tories and Labour sing from the same song sheet; with the difference between austerity and austerity-lite being nowhere near enough. When no-one represents us, we must take to the streets.”
