Text by CCF-FAI/IRF – Imprisoned Members Cell about the proposal of Nikos Maziotis concerning the Solidarity Assembly (Greece)

December 29th, 2014

Text from the comrades concerning the creation of an assembly of solidarity and action with the political prisoners.

SOLIDARITY MEANS ATTACK

i) C’ Type prisons – an act of war

C’ Type prisons wish to become the monument of the State’s victory against the urban guerrilla warfare. It is a bet for us, if we’re going to let a thousand tonnes of concrete, bars and locks beat the human will for freedom, a bet which is to be answered through action by the enemies of the regime and the friends of freedom.
For years now, politically, TV personalities of the system and salaried pen-holders of the police, have engaged in a mud fight against the urban guerrilla warfare, aid at depoliticizing it. “Osmosis of criminals and terrorists”, “cooperation between terrorists and organized crime”, “revolutionary pool” are the vanguard of the lie. Propaganda wishes to hide, covering with its mud, the self-evident constant revolt. A constant revolt of the ones who refuse to live as slaves and attack with arms against the leaders, the silence, the conservatism and the resignation of the majority of society.

Wishing to decouple the possible perspective of the violent insurrectionary action and to mutilate its diffusion, power uses lies and slander in order to present the armed urban guerrillas as insane criminals. And all this, at the same time when their bloodthirsty democracy makes thousands of people commit suicide and poisons every moment of our lives through the terrorism of poverty, repression, a police state, loneliness, exploitation, while it tricks the naive ones through the fake freedom of consumption, spectacle, mass entertainment, digital reality and the civilization of the mediocre. The highlight of the political propaganda against the urban guerrilla warfare was set up early in 2014, after the escape of Christodoulos Xiros on prison leave, who instead of coming back to prison voluntarily, chose the path of illegality and complicity with the new urban guerilla warfare. Headlines and reportage with catchy titles like “New Year’s terror-eve with the CCF”, “prisons are safe houses of terrorists” became the flagship of lies. What bothered power most, together with the escape of comrade Christodoulos Xiros, was that despite our arrests, we have never turned into dormant trophies in the hands of our wardens. For the unrepentant urban guerrillas, prison is not a palace of fear, it is a place of captivity that digs in and tempers more the willingness for rebellion and freedom.

War against ISIS/Daesh: YPG release statistics showing collapse of Daesh in Rojava (Kurdistan)

December 28th, 2014

The People’s Defence Units (YPG) have announced statistics relating to 2014, saying during 2014 nearly five thousand gang members have been killed in clashes and operations in different parts of Rojava.

The YPG’s official spokesperson Rêdûr Xelîl held a press conference at the Trade Union hall in the town of Rimêlan, at which he announced statistics relating to 2014.

Xelîl said that throughout 2014 there had been fierce clashes between YPG forces and ISIS gangs in different parts of Rojava, and that as far as they had been able to ascertain, 4,964 gang members had been killed in these clashes. 228 corpses had been taken by YPG forces, while 11 gang members were taken prisoner.

The YPG spokesperson evaluated the military situation and recent developments, saying the YPG forces had successfully come through 3 historic phases, adding:

“The first phase was the rescuing of tens of thousands of Yazidis from ISIS gangs in Sinjar and the opening of a humanitarian corridor so that 150 thousand Yazidis could reach Rojava. The second phase was the historic resistance against overwhelming odds in Kobanê that has astonished the world. The third phase was the ‘defence and cleansing’ operation we carried out from Tel Hemis and Serêkaniyê on a broad front including the town of Mebrûka and villages of Aliya.”

The YPG spokesperson stressed that the outstanding and memorable resistance of the YPG/YPJ fighters had not just aimed to protect the Kurdish people, but also the Arabs, Syriacs, Armenian, Chechens living in Rojava. He added that the resistance of the YPG/YPJ forces in 2014 had proved that they were the principal force that would smash ISIS. Read the rest of this entry »

Text by Nikos Maziotis, of Revolutionary Struggle, for the creation of a Solidarity Assembly (Greece)

December 28th, 2014

In the text below, Nikos Maziotis, member of Revolutionary Struggle, suggests the creation of an assembly of solidarity for all political detainees and prisoners-fighters.

Text below from Nikos Maziotis, member of Revolutionary Struggle, to the open assembly of Anarchists / Anti-authoritarians against the specific Type C conditions of detention, Maziotis proposes the creation of a solidarity meeting for all political detainees and prisoners-fighters. At the same time it is an open call to all comrades and companions of the anarchist / anti-authoritarian domain to participate and support this endeavour.

In the short term the date and location where the first meeting to explore possibilities to set up the Solidarity Assembly will be announced.

The text is sent to all political detainees and imprisoned fighters.

Comrades – companions, this text addresses you concerning Type C prisons, and my proposal for the creation of a meeting as concerns the issue of solidarity.

Comrades – companions, the passing of legislation of the Type C prisons are an expected development in the repressive attack of the State against the armed Revolutionary Organizations and against armed direct action. Subsequently, the legislative changes and reforms that have been under way for about 14 years are directly linked to the political and economic conditions, applicable for years internationally, and none other than the “war on terror” and the neoliberal reforms intended to impose the dictatorship of the markets, and its doctorate of supranational capital.

As Revolutionary Struggle, since the beginning of our activities in 2003, I believe that we properly analyzed the political and economic conditions in the early nineties when we started our activities, conditions relating to the globalization of the capitalist system. Both the “war on terror” launched in 2001 following the attacks on the United States, and the neoliberal reforms that conduced and were designed by the dictatorship of transnational capital is not only the economic and civilian-relevant nature of globalization. The system, therefore, in order to impose the dictatorship of markets proceeds at an increasingly harder crackdown as it tends to become more and more totalitarian.

In Greece, the same year [of 2001] the Greek economy was opened up to transnational capital after the so-called scandal of 1999. The stock market integration in EMU, in the Eurozone in 2002. It is therefore no coincidence that at the same period, even to lag behind Western Europe and the US, the Greek State proceeding to legislate the first anti-terrorism law in 2001, the law drawn up by Stathopoulos [Minister of Justice].

Preliminary hearing of the trial against anarchist comrade Tamara Sol Farias Vergara ($hile)

December 27th, 2014

From RadioAzione
Translated by act for freedom now

The preliminary hearing of the trial against comrade Tamara Sol Farias Vergara took place in Santiago on Monday 24th November. Tamara has been held prisoner in the jail of San Miguel for almost a year on charges of attempted murder and theft.

During the hearing defence lawyers and prosecutors submitted evidence reports, witness statements and other findings.

The court rejected about 28 witnesses for the prosecution, most of them cops of OS-9 and bank employees. Many of them did not even witness the events that led to Tamara’s arrest.

The judge also accepted a defence lawyers’ request and rejected other evidence, findings and materials presented by the prosecution and the representative of Banco Estado (the claimant).

There was a strong presence at this first hearing of comrades who have expressed solidarity with the comrade and her family from the start. But the comrades had to stay outside the court as the judge ordered the hearing be held behind closed doors. In spite of this Tamara managed to hear the slogans shouted by the comrades outside.

The triad of judges will be appointed and the date of the start of the trial fixed in the next few days.

Solidarity and complicity with Tamara Sol!

Pandora’s box and the hotchpotch of Spanish anti-terrorism

December 24th, 2014

Text written a week ago about Pandora’s police operation in Spain
against anarchists

The morning of Tuesday the 16th of December has surprised us with a wave
of house raids and arrests. Surprised us? We are not going to lie. Let’s
start again. The morning of the 16th of December has NOT surprised us. The
autonomous Catalan police, the Mossos d’Esquadra, and the Guardia Civil
and judiciary powers of the Audiencia Nacional stormed more than ten
houses and a few anarchist spaces in Barcelona, Sabadell, Manresa and
Madrid, with house raids, arrests, confiscation of propaganda material and
information, to also use the occasion to enter and plunder, with the
entire riot police team of the Mossos d’Esquadra, Kasa de la Muntanya, a
squatted place that has existed for 25 years.

According to the media, which as usual are proving their role as police
spokespersons, the goal of these arrests is to break up “a criminal
organisation with terrorist goals and a violent anarchist character”.
Although it seems easy to repeat an often used phrase, we will do it
anyway: the only criminal organisation that terrorises people with its
violent character is the State and its tentacles: the media, the juridical
apparatus, its repressive bodies and its politicians, whatever spectre
they belong to. Read the rest of this entry »

Call from Berlin-

Aufruf

“…solange es eine Unterschicht gibt, bin ich Teil davon. Solange es kriminelle Elemente gibt, bin ich eines davon, und solange auch nur eine Seele im Gefängnis ist, kann ich nicht frei sein.”
Eugene V. Debs

Knäste sind das Resultat einer kranken Gesellschaft, welche zu feige ist sich mit ihren Problemen auseinander zu setzen. Wer sich den fremdbestimmten Regeln widersetzt, sich normfremd verhält oder manchmal einfach nur um Überleben kämpft hat in der Reproduktionsmaschinerie von Staat und Politik schlechte Karten. Kriminalisierung und schließlich das Wegsperren sind die vermeintlich leichtesten Mittel der Wahrheit aus dem Weg zu gehen und sich einer grundlegenden Konfrontation zu entziehen.

Operation Pandora: Words of Monica Caballero from Brieva Prison (Spain)

December 21st, 2014

(Translated by Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras from Contrainfo, edited by 325)

If I could choose a different life, I would not change it for anything.

I perfectly remember the feeling that invaded me when I began to
question authority, I remember the many contradictions and questions. In
this discovery of ideas I found many people that made material practices
of the ideas in their libraries, publications, ateneos, etc… in their
everyday life … to live ideas here and now. It did not take long for me
to think that I would like to do the same.

I remember the anguish I felt when I heard that there were comrades
imprisoned for putting into practice the ideas of freedom ideas; brothers
of ideas in all corners of the world in the jaws of the panoptic beast. That
distressed feeling never changed, but it is accompanied by the gesture
of solidarity.

We are many, the anarchists on the other side of the great wall, on
Tuesday December 16 this list became more extensive.

Tentacles of power dropped into anarchists spaces, libertarían ateneos,
squatted house and homes of several anarchists of Catalonia and Madrid.
Hunting and capturing eleven comrades, of these, seven were imprisoned,
accused of belonging to an armed group of terrorist nature. It is not a
coincidence that the detainees are part of my immediate environment, indeed,
more than half of them frequently visit me in jail. The judicial-police
mallet has punished solidarity.

I can not keep silent before such misery, the state´s repressive revenge
borders on delirium. The media (spokesmen for the rulers) talk about bosses
and subordinates, I stress to them and anyone who has any doubt, we are
anti-authoritarian, no one is above me, nor am I above anyone!

Spaces attacked in Catalunya were not arbitrary, firstly, Kasa de la
Muntanya is an important squatting symbol, with its 25 years away from
the capitalist logic which have made its contribution to many generations
of dissidents to this system of terror. The Libertarian Ateneos and
anarchist spaces that were hit have never hidden their ideals,
providing a fertile ground for sowing the seeds of freedom.

The costs in this struggle for the recovery of our lives is very high,
nobody said it would be easy, but undoubtedly if I could choose a
different life, I would not change it for anything. In this fight
against domination there are no cages or walls to silence our voices,
but without you, comrades, it will only become echoes.

If you, recently jailed loved comrades, can read these words, I tell you
that I am certain you will remain incorruptible and rise to the occasion
as you have always done.

I remember every time I read or heard that solidarity is a necessary
weapon for anarchists. Today I hope that those memories come true…
… to turn our ideas into action.

Monica Caballero
Brieva Prison, December 2014.
