Arson against fascist squatted centre in Madrid and call to action 30 Aug / 6pm (Spain)

August 30th, 2014

Nazi squat ‘Ramiro Ledesma’ in Madrid burned and painted with slogan-threat. Call today 30th August at 18:00 for antifascist action. Fire was set at the door of the fascist social centre and a slogan written “Get out of our neighborhoods” on the facade. The industrial building was ‘squatted’ early last week by a group of Nazi-Fascist “Republican Social Movement” (MSR), in the district of Tetuan, Madrid, named ‘Ramiro Ledesma’, and it suffered an assault in the early hours of yesterday.

Popular Call to antifascist action

Anti-fascist demonstration in Tetouan district against the occupation of a building by the neo-Nazi party ideology MSR.

Saturday, 30 August 2014 at 18:00. From the Plaza de las Palomas (officially Plaza del Canal de Isabel II).

Death to fascism and nationalism.

‘Against all States – Against all Gods’ by Venona Q. (ISIS)

August 29th, 2014

A brief musing by individualist nihilist-anarchist, Venona Q.:

The rise of the Islamic State and the atrocities coming out of Iraq and Syria has shocked, distressed and unnerved me. As an anarchist, I am used to criticising the West, capitalism, the incursion of Western troops into countries they want to de-stabilise and turn into a resource for the profit of the rich in Europe and America. But being an anarchist does not make me immune to fear or disgust and it is my responsibility to recognise what I feel, to understand it and if possible to act. Coming at the end of some years now of rising worldwide Islamic fundamentalism, these latest acts send a shiver down my spine. How could they not? Hearing of the beheading of journalist James Foley, the executions of hundreds of ‘non-believers’ and the rape and enslavement of thousands of girls and women, makes me feel as if I have been plucked out of time and place and have been deposited back in the Dark Ages. As a secular Westerner, invocations to God and atrocities committed in his name are frankly medieval. Surely everyone can see how ridiculous it is to fight in a God’s name and to brutalise those who call ‘Him’ something different? Who or what is God? Where is He? Does He exist? How can anyone believe such nonsense in this day and age? Read the rest of this entry »

Attack on Army Cadet base in Bristol (UK)

August 29th, 2014

We took action in the build up to the NATO summit who will meet in Newport to continue their power mongering disguised as benevolent international peacekeeping. To be clear, this ‘peace’ they want to keep is that of the capitalist order: the ‘peace’ of producing, consuming and obeying.

NATOs rhetoric of democracy and human rights hides its aggressive colonisation force as it moves into areas strategic for resources and political control. Meanwhile, on the ‘home front’ the role of suppressing the ‘internal enemy’ is quite clear. NATO, aware of the insurrection that flared up during the ‘Arab Spring’ just below the Mediterranean border outlined the ‘Urban Operations in the year 2020’ report envisaging “scenarios of armies engaged manually to suffocate the revolts of the poor in the suburbs of big western towns”. The powers that be are clearly honing this type of counter-insurgency warfare as much as interstate military conflict in the darkening future of further societal breakdown, economic and ecological catastrophes.

We chose the Army Cadet base in north-east Bristol, burning 1 car and 1 minibus. as an example of the ways in which militarisation works its way into the fabric of daily life. In recent years, Schools Commissioner Elizabeth Sidewell suggested that every school should have a combined Cadet force “to increase the armed forces everyday contact and influence with young people” in order to ensure the continued support of the population. The presence of the military even in schools is presented as just a natural part of ‘community’ and that competition, discipline and top down obedience are necessary characteristics.

We are in solidarity with those who took to the streets 3 years ago in August 2011, as well as those who have recently been on the streets of Ferguson, another area currently receiving military treatment. Following these insurrectionary moments the government saw one of the functions of its push for more cadets and military involvement in education in general as being to keep young people out of trouble and from being ‘anti-social’. The Phoenix School in Oldham, military academies and others are all manifestations of this promotion of blind discipline and nationalism.

FIRE TO THE MILITARY!

Mostar: Program of 8th Balkan Anarchist Bookfair (Bosnia & Herzegovina)

August 29th, 2014

Program of 8th Balkan Anarchist Bookfair: Over the Walls of Nationalism

Eighth Balkan Anarchist Bookfair will take place in Mostar on 5th and 6th of September 2014 as part of Anti-Fascist festival, annual Mostar event.

We invite all anarchist/antiauthoritarian groups, individuals, publishers, initiatives and projects from Balkan (and beyond) to come and participate at BAB in discussions and meetings which will help us build solidarity networks and strong anti-nationalist and anti-capitalist movement. Mostar in many ways represent misery that is imposed on big part of Balkan through divisions created by nationalism, war and fight for power between political elites which were and still are working on destruction of all social
networks in town that go beyond these artificial “differences”. All this fits perfect to capitalist logic of “divide and rule”, since it’s used as tool for prevention of all social revolts and attempts to build up social connections that were violently broken. Read the rest of this entry »

ABC Hurricane: New group of the Black Cross forms in Week of Solidarity for Anarchist Prisoners (UK)

August 28th, 2014

From ABC Hurricane:

Warm greetings,

We are ABC Hurricane, a UK-based Anarchist Black Cross group that supports prisoners in struggle.

We have named the group ABC Hurricane in order to be non-location specific and to be accessible to anyone wherever they are in the UK or internationally. We see ourselves as part of the Anarchist Black Cross and part of the Black International of Anarchists of Praxis.

We formed during the Anarchist Prisoners’ Global Week of Solidarity this August 2014. This week highlights the different cases of our comrades across the world – some we know about, some we didn’t know about until this week. This is a time for our prisoners, ABC, solidarity, counter-info and action groups to organise, expressing practical solidarity and the desire to see the destruction of all prisons. We believe that solidarity is not just fund-raising or charity networking but should also have an element of action and attack against the existent.

All the people in the group have been involved in prisoner solidarity work for many years but want to push the trajectory of our group beyond that. We don’t see any difference between those social and political prisoners in struggle – almost all prisoners are political in this situation. We are for the class struggle but also for the destruction of the prisons and civilisation.

Over the next few weeks we will be creating and putting out images, publications and text, and we look forward to communication with rebels inside and outside the walls, and anyone that wishes to support our prisoners.

Police investigating the incendiary anarchist minority raid Bristol IMC, who shut down their project (UK)

August 28th, 2014

Breaking news: A report and warning posted on self-publishing civil activist “citizen-journalist” website “Bristol IMC”, advises that police have physically accessed their server and have gained possession of 16 months worth of IP addresses that were stored “accidentally” by an admin. Indymedia websites usually state that they don’t store IP addresses, but in this case it was a false policy. Indymedia was previously part of the anti-capitalist movement from the alter-globalist era, but has been recuperated by the liberal democratic system.

325 has long regarded the Bristol IMC project to largely be passed any relevancy and considered it as in the hands of the enemy for some time. It doesn’t surprise us at all that their server is now to become part of the regime’s hand to be used against the new anarchist urban guerrilla operating in the UK. This incident confirms our view that the admins of Bristol IMC were totally unprepared to be running a website such as they were and 325 was correct to position ourselves in antagonism towards them. Their persistent attempts to denigrate the new urban guerrillas and their lack of any kind of respect when we attempted to communicate to them means they will find no solidarity from us.

Bristol IMC’s recent cowardly and civil society orientated “statement” announcing that they were not going to be publishing any more communiques for destructive attacks on their pages also confirmed that they were the worst kind of pacifist-judiciary and cowards of the tendency of civil democracy. Fools who beg for their rights and proclaim their ‘innocence’. They can make their apologia in the courts with the rest of the activist sludge and stay far away from us with their appeals to the legal liturgy.

For the destructive attack against society and the state.

-

Bristol IMC made this statement:

The Police have physically accessed the Bristol Indymedia server.

Last week we heard from our web hosts that the police had a court order to access the Bristol Indymedia server. We don’t know for sure, but assume that our web hosts have complied with the order and given the police this access.

We consider this server to be compromised, users should assume that from this point on the Police have access to the IP address of anyone accessing this site.

In light of this it is unlikely that open publishing of news items will ever be re-enabled as it would require complete re-installation of the server.

We are going to leave the calendar on for now, but note that it is likely that IP addresses are now being recorded and accessed by the Police.

-

Bristol Indymedia site is now officially closed for good following a police raid targeting an anarchist group.
Bristol and South West region has seen recently a number of attacks and actions on State equipment and places of repression, attacks that were reported on Bristol Indymedia.

Bristol and Avon police obtained a court order to physically access the Bristol Indymedia server and all of its records in conjunction with their investigation into people who may have been involved. Regretfully owing to an administration error by one of the techies all IP address details for the past 16 months were still stored on the server and these have been recorded by the police. We advise people to make personal security arrangements with this in mind.

We are working with a local firm of solicitors but at present do not anticipate the Bristol Indymedia site ever returning to a open publishing model although the diary page will remain.

The power of the State when threatened can be immense and we have seen that this week.

Love and rage everybody.

“Arming Negation” – A Communique from the Imprisoned Members of C.C.F. (Greece)

August 27th, 2014

10599382_647879075308492_1171458118256482873_n

Inter Arma received and translated:

ARMING NEGATION

Mediocrity kills. For us there is no middle road. Whoever says is an anarchist, faces a decisive dilemma either to act or to clam up and abandon anarchy. Because anarchy at the tail-end of legality and minced words is not possible.

(unreleased text by C.C.F.)

I. Symbolisms inside coincidences

After almost two years the third trial of the state against the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire is coming to its end. The theatrical show of the court is peaking through the “sacred” act of the apologies.

The symbolism of the words in not coincidental. Indeed for the legal civilization the apology is considered to be a “sacred” right of the accused. It reminds the confession of the worshiper to the priest. It is the supreme moment of exaltation of the judicial authority, before the verdict. The accused is required to kowtow his judges (coincidentally, in greece there is a christian image of the “Son of God” above the judges’ heads. The coincidences are left to each one’s insigh) and beg for the forgiveness of penal sins, for clemency or even for vindication. In the language of symbolisms we have always preferred the heretic iconoclasts instead of the Inquisition’s justice. In the world of reality we are anarcho-nihilists and we are not going to apologize to any judge. Read the rest of this entry »

Intervista CCF & Alfredo Cospito / Nucleo Olga FAI-FRI (Greece, Italy)

August 27th, 2014

via radioazione:

L’aggiornamento continuo di un sito fa si che le pagine scorrono veloci, e questo fa che i testi, come questo che reputo interessante, finiscono negli archivi informatici. Questa intervista era apparsa già quasi due mesi fa su questo sito ed oggi, nonostante si possa andarla a ritrovare e rileggere, preferisco ripubblicarla visto che erano avvenute lamentele, per un “mancato dibattito”, da parte di chi aveva visioni diverse su alcune tematiche affrontate ora anche da Alfredo. Un altro motivo è perché la stessa intervista non è stata pubblicata da nessun’altra parte se non su questo sito e quello di CroceNeraAnarchica.

Sarà…ma a me mi torna in mente una canzone…la citazione con cui apre il testo di rivendicazione di Nicola…

Di seguito la lunga e approfondita intervista fatta dai compagni greci delle CCF al compagno Alfredo Cospito:

INTERVISTA CCF/ALFREDO COSPITO

Dalle carceri greche all’ AS2 di Ferrara: Quattro parole in “ libertà”.

Intervista delle Ccf a me medesimo.

Prima di rispondere alle vostre domande voglio sottolineare che quel che dirò è la mia verità. Uno tra i tanti punti di vista, sensibilità e sfumature individuali all’interno di quel crogiolo di pensiero ed azione che va sotto il nome di Fai-Fri.

Federazione informale che, rifiutando qualsiasi tentazione egemonica, rappresenta uno strumento, un metodo di una delle componenti dell’anarchismo d’azione. Anarchismo d’azione che solo quando si fa informale, non costringendosi in strutture organizzative (specifiche, formali, di sintesi) quando non è all’ assillante ricerca di consenso (quindi rifiuta la politica) si può riconoscere in un più largo caotico universo che va sotto il nome di ’’internazionale nera’’.

Per capirci meglio la Fai-Fri è una metodologia d’azione che solo una parte delle sorelle e fratelli dell’internazionale nera praticano, non un’organizzazione né tanto meno una semplice firma collettiva, ma uno strumento che tende all’efficienza, che ha come obiettivo quello di rafforzare i nuclei e i singoli compagni/e d’azione attraverso un patto di mutuo appoggio su tre punti: solidarietà rivoluzionaria, campagne rivoluzionarie, comunicazione tra gruppi /singoli: Read the rest of this entry »

Screening of “Sacco & Vanzetti” film in Riga (Latvia) + Sacco and Vanzetti… a 87 años de su ejecución, con la memoria anárquica intacta ($hile)

August 27th, 2014

From Riga, Latvia:

On August 24, 19:00, in the bar ‘Chomsky’ a film about “Sacco and Vanzetti” from 1971 was shown. After there was a discussion of the film and a talk about the activities of the Anarchist Black Cross and anarchist prisoners of Russia and Belarus.

-

This is a text written by Biblioteca Antiautoritaria Sacco y Vanzetti in Santiago, $hile, on the 87th year since the murder of Sacco and Vanzetti by the American State:

SACCO Y VANZETTI… a 87 años de su ejecución, con la memoria anárquica
intacta

“El enemigo nos quiere muertos y nos tendrá muertos para defender el
privilegio y la tiranía, para humillaros, para acobardaos, para
venceros, destruiros y encadenar los pueblos al carro de su esclavitud
(…) Y este mismo enemigo, clava sus inmundos tentáculos en la carne de
todos los pueblos de la Tierra, prepara el más grande militarismo del
mundo y se apresta a esclavizar la entera humanidad. Hay que aplastarle
la cabeza..”.

Bartolomeo Vanzetti

El 23 de Agosto de 1927 en Massachusetts, EEUU, son ejecutados en la
silla eléctrica Niccola Sacco y Bartolomeo Vanzetti, dos inmigrantes
italianos y reconocidos anarquistas. Tras 7 años de juicio, son
encontrados culpables de robo con homicidio y se los condena a morir
electrocutados.

El caso de los compañeros Sacco y Vanzetti es quizá el que ha tenido
mayor repercusión internacional, es sin duda un caso emblemático por
todo el proceso judicial que los mantuvo en prisión y que generó
reacciones a nivel mundial. Read the rest of this entry »

Call Out – Stop NATO action against securitisation and policing (Wales, UK)

August 25th, 2014



From Cardiff to Gaza – tear down their barrier!

In preparation for the NATO summit, the authorities have put a giant fucking wall around parts of Cardiff and Newport. Local people do not want this wall – it prevents access to public grounds and services, disrupts essential travel and is an ugly visible reminder of the increasingly militarised zone that Cardiff and Newport have become in advance of this Summit.

Whilst they are in no way equivalent, we are mindful of the daily plight of the Palestinian people, hemmed in by giant walls that prevent them from accessing sufficient provisions, medical care or shelter from the prolific murderous Israeli attacks that have recently claimed thousands of lives.

We stand against all those states and corporations which would seek to profit from human misery, division and securitisation.

Meet us on Sunday, 31th August, at 3pm at the Nye Bevan statue in Cardiff (west end of Queen Street, opposite the castle) to make our feelings known.

Bring Palestinian flags and banners.

Caracas: Against the extradition of radical left comrade Bernhard Heidbreder to Germany (Venezuela)

August 25th, 2014

From http://no-extradicion.net:

Appeal to the Venezuelan public and government

Early July Bernhard Heidbreder was arrested by Venezuelan security forces in Merida. Since then the formally German national has been held in custody in Caracas. German authorities are seeking Bernhard’s extradition based on ongoing criminal investigations
against him. According to the German authorities, Bernhard and two other persons are accused of having been members of the militant leftwing group the K.O.M.I.T.E.E.. In 1994 this group committed an arson attack on a building of the German armed forces
(Bundeswehr). In 1995 a planned attack on a remodeled deportation camp was abandoned before it took place. Due to these actions by the group K.O.M.I.T.E.E., Bernhard could face a serious prison sentence if he were to be extradited to Germany.

Bernhard and the other two accused have absconded from the German judiciary. Almost 20 years ago they managed to disappear and created a new life for themselves.

We are old friends of Bernhard and we do not know what has been happening for him or the other two. But we do know that under no circumstances does he want to be extradited to Germany. This is why we are addressing the Venezuelan public and the Government with this open letter. Read the rest of this entry »

New bail and legal fund established for those arrested in anti-police riots in Ferguson (USA)

August 25th, 2014

Via antistatesl:

New Bail and Legal Fund Established

A new bail and legal fund has been established to support the people who have been arrested during the anti-police demonstrations in Ferguson, Mo. The other account had to be closed for tax reasons, but a new account has been quickly set up. Please spread the word widely and help us get some money together to get these people out.

Also, we are looking for information on who was arrested so we can get them legal support and bail them out if necessary. If you have a friend or family member who was arrested, please email us their name at:

antistatestl [at] riseup [dot] net

All funds collected will be used to support those arrested during the demonstrations–their bail money, fines, legal funds, or other related expenses. In the unlikely event that there are additional funds, they will be used to support people resisting police repression and police violence in the future.
