CCF Escape case: “Washing the mud away…” – Inter Arma’s announcement (Greece)

January 31st, 2015

This announcement is a response to the published articles of various media cesspools of the regime, that involve Inter Arma in their reports concerning manuscripts that are among the police findings in the case of the prison escape attempted by the anarchist group Conspiracy of Cells of Fire but also to the sad but expected speculation from a part of the so-called anarchist “milieu”.

For over a month now, with the electoral festival as a background, counter-terrorism agency and its snitches in the media carry out a large scale communicative campaign in the context of the prison escape attempted by CCF and some criminal prisoners. Dozens of findings, theories, police updates, phone conversations and interviews have been released to the public. It’s not the first time that the snitches of the cops involve us in various ways in such situations. And while they usually use more of their imagination, like in the case of project Nemesis, when the were referring to us as part of the project, this time they are targeting us for the obvious, which is the communication with comrades that are imprisoned in the dungeons of Democracy. The reason why counter-terrorism agencies internationally move communicably and operationally against projects like Inter Arma, has been analyzed quite a few times. The counter-information projects of those anarchists that still consider anarchist struggle to be a battle against the regime, are an obvious target for the enemy. Read the rest of this entry »

Cardiff: 4 Feb-9.15am – Court solidarity for anti-Nato activist (Wales, UK)

January 30th, 2015

The last trial of the people arrested at last year’s NATO protests in Wales is due to be played out in court next Wednesday in Cardiff. This time the police and CPS are trying to stitch up someone up for assaulting an officer. A demonstration is planned outside the Cardiff Magistrate’s at 9.15am on 4th February.

Almost all of the other people arrested at the protests against NATO and the DPRTE arms fair have had their charges dropped. The cases demonstrate, once again, that the cops will make arrests and harass demonstrators any way they can with the aim of stamping out resistance. They also show the urgent need for collective solidarity for those experiencing police repression.

Conservative MP Charlotte Leslie’s Bristol constituency office sprayed with anti-fracking slogan (UK)

January 30th, 2015

Bristol, UK: MP Charlotte Leslie, rabid anti-anarchist and anti-environmentalist member of the Conservative Party, who called for a repressive policing campaign against Bristol’s anarchist and eco ‘community’ has had a slogan reading “Fracking Whore” spray-painted on her political party offices. The woman and her political party suffered the vandalism early this morning but continued with their lying, thieving and manipulating into the afternoon and the conceivable future. Police are ‘investigating’ the crime scene and the local right-wing paper reported the heinous attack against democracy. The “Fracking Whore” gave a sensitive and unintentionally funny statement imploring the presumed anarchists responsible to stop using aerosols and form a political party to stand against her in the elections.

“The earth is not dying, it is being killed, and those who are killing it have names and addresses.”

Anti-civ individualist vandal glues some locks, puts up posters and sprays paint in personal action against ‘the morality of anthropocentrism’ (Scotland, UK)

January 30th, 2015

Scotland 25/12/2014

On the eve of christmas after the mass had paid their respects to the altar of consumerism I thought of celebrating in an other way this farce of civilization, by going outside at night sabotaging the locks of stores that have made death commerce. The systematized death in the name of civilization under the mantle of the morality of anthropocentrism.

I glued the locks of 6 stores in the city centre by just putting in very strong glue inside the locks and therefore destroying the system of those locks completely. 2 stores that display a new dead body every day for each slave of society to consume. Every day another whole pig cut into pieces, exposition on a big window. A harlequin after death for the service of the civilized anthropocentrist human. From death row to the final destination. The others were cashmere stores which are obviously a target as well. Read the rest of this entry »

PDF: Actualising Collapse – Anarchist-nihilist anti-civilisation zine (UK)

January 29th, 2015

PDF: Actualising Collapse + Cover

Actualising Collapse is a collection of iconoclastic texts, rebellious thoughts and proposals on the borderless war against the techno-industrial system, with writings by imprisoned urban guerrillas, uncivilised saboteurs and communiques from the frontlines of the black international of anarchists of praxis.

As this publication has taken much longer than originally thought to complete, some of the communiques within in its pages have surely been well read by now, however we believe it is important to run printed copies of said texts to avoid their inevitable disappearance into the void of the internet. Physical copies can be read anywhere, given to friends and best of all they wont give you a fucking headache like attempting to read zines on some glowing screen. So keep an eye out for printed copies around the UK and feel free to print and distribute it without hesitation.

Articles concerning illegalism, individualism, tactical analysis with some rants and poems.

CCF Escape case: Text concerning recent events by Anarchist Squat Nadir (Thessaloniki, Greece)

January 29th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

TYPE C’ PRISONS, THE ESCAPE ATTEMPT OF CCF, THE SCENARIOS ABOUT OSMOSIS BETWEEN CRIMINALS AND TERRORISTS AND THE JOURNALISTS’ CESSPOOL

We are not going to talk about how C’ type prisons are structured, how they were built or how they’re going to be improved. We will just say that they are not any kind of impenetrable barrier or some invincible beast. C’ type prisons are another act of war against the prisoners of war. They are the answer of the state against anarchists who haven’t bent down their heads, that every day hone the axe of war, who haven’t quit and haven’t delayed in action against the enemy. They are built for those who didn’t turn into “coffee shop guerrillas” or “imprisoned ideologists” towards repression. Besides, the state never spared these people. And the state’s monopoly of violence has always been broken only when the recipient of it disputed it through action.

ON THE CCF’s ESCAPE ATTEMPT

On January 4th, there was an escape from Korydallos prison planned by the members of CCF. The previous day, the cops disrupted the escape, for which they admit that it was one of the most perfectly organized hits of the last decades. Read the rest of this entry »

MOVE: Phil Africa Passed Away Under Suspicious Circumstances in Prison (U$A)

January 29th, 2015

On Saturday, January 10th 2015 Phil Africa, revolutionary, John Africa’s First Minister of Defense, and beloved brother, husband and father, passed away under suspicious circumstances at the State Correctional Institution at Dallas, PA. On Sunday, January 4th Phil Africa wasn’t feeling well and went to the prison infirmary. Though he wasn’t feeling well, other inmates saw Phil Africa walking, stretching and doing jumping jacks. Hearing that Phil was in the infirmary MOVE members drove up to visit him and were denied a visit by the prison. While they were visiting with Delbert Africa, Phil was secretly transported to Wilkes Barre General Hospital where he was held in total isolation, incommunicado for five days.

Prison officials at SCI-Dallas wouldn’t communicate about Phil’s condition. They told MOVE that Phil was at Wilkes Barre General hospital but the hospital denied he was there and this back and forth lie went on for days almost the entire time Phil was being held. The hospital and the prison behaved very suspiciously denying Phil the ability to call family members or his wife of 44 years, Janine Africa, stating that she was not a blood relative. The hospital and prison received hundreds of phone calls in support of Phil from around the world. When they finally submitted to pressure and allowed Phil to call Janine on Thursday, January 8th he was heavily drugged, incoherent and couldn’t even hold the phone to talk to her.

Statement

Repression is part and parcel in democracy. In a democracy the rulers require complete control over the people. Revolts are countered with political repression in the form of arrests, armed raids and physical and emotional harassment by the police. Movements are watered downed by mainstream environmental groups such as Forest Ethics and Greenpeace. These groups wish to reform colonialism instead of eliminating it. These groups, much like Enbridge and BP, rely upon capitalism and cooperation with the state to exist. These mainstream environmental organizations frack the rebellion out of people in the form of referendums, voting and waving signs. Meanwhile, they use our radical words only to dilute, co-opt and contribute to polluted deals undermining real grassroots movements and then ensure us that democracy is still drinkable.

7 Feb: Smash the EDL’s National Demo in Dudley (UK)

January 28th, 2015

via rabbleLDN:

From Midlands Anti-Fascists.

ALERTA! Anti-Fascist response needed in the West Midlands!

The racists of the English Defence League (EDL) are planning to have their national demo on Saturday February the 7th in Dudley. They are treating it very seriously, and antifa need to be just as committed and more organised.

In the context of Charlie Hebdo, islamaphobia from the government, the media and the far-right is on the rise. Letting them feel they can have these views and gather in an attempt to intimidate Black, Asian and other minority ethnic populations is not an option. Read the rest of this entry »

War against ISIS/Daesh: Tens of thousands flock to Kobanê border for celebration; YPG Commander warns that the threat to the city is not over (Kurdistan)

January 28th, 2015

Tens of thousands flock to Kobanê border for celebration

URFA 27.01.2015 14:00:14

Thousands of people from cities across North Kurdistan and Turkey are continuing to reach Mehser village at Suruç-Kobanê border where a celebration event is being organised following the victory of resistance in Kobanê.

People in the village, which has been covered in traditional Kurdish colours, red, green and yellow, and with flags and posters, have started the celebration singing and performing the traditional Kurdish folk dance halay.

Thousands have been gathering since early morning at the point directly opposite the Kaniya Kurda area of Kobanê for the celebration event that started at noon.

The celebration event has taken the form of a large rally. ‘The liberation of Kurdistan will come through the struggle of guerrillas’ reads the main poster in the rally area which is covered with posters of the Kurdish leader Abdullah Öcalan and Arin Mirkan, Paramaz Kızılbaş and Kader Ortakaya who were martyred in Kobanê.

Leipzig: Real estate company targeted and several luxury vehicles torched (Germany)

January 28th, 2015

Via Contra-Info:

Wednesday 21st January around 3 o’clock in the morning, four vehicles of a real estate company in Leipzig were torched: the cars destroyed by flames were all high-end vehicles (3 Mercedes and 1 Audi). This incendiary sabotage was claimed on Sunday 25th January by “Autonome Gruppen“:

In the night of 20th-21st January 2015, we attacked during a targeted action the whole fleet of vehicles of the multi-million euro real estate speculators GRK Holding in the southern-centre of Leipzig, and with this we delivered flames to four vehicles. The real estate company referenced is one of the largest long-term profiteers of gentrification in Leipzig. Spread throughout the city, the big company projects are either under construction or have already been completed. The systematic terror against the tenants is still high on the agenda, such as gentrification ensuing the cheaply purchased property renders Leipzig more attractive for people with a higher monthly income.

“Founded since 1991, GRK-Holding AG manages and leases, exclusively and qualitatively, high-end properties in and around Leipzig.”

This is enough reason to show these dear ladies and gentlemen that their actions don’t remain without a response. This took place whilst we deposited incendiaries to four vehicles parked in front of the headquarters of the company and a truck parked in the yard, four vehicles and a carport in the flames of our hatred.

Pula: Nothing is over, everything continues – RadioAzione Croatia (Croatia)

January 28th, 2015

Received and translated to English by Act for freedom now!

IN CROATIAN, IN ITALIAN, IN GREEK

On the morning of January 23, 2015 agents of the Croatian secret services – SOA – turned up here because they wanted to talk to me about my site, RadioAzione Croatia, and to my husband, anarchist comrade, Italian citizen, who runs and also hosts other anarchist sites (including RadioAzione), threatening him with expulsion.

Their discourse began with threats concerning my personal relationships, both current and future, assuming that these are and will only be realized with anarchists, not Croatian of course, warning me that Croatia has no intention of becoming a haunt for people who are a problem for their countries of origin. Here the reference to my relationship with the comrade of RadioAzione Italy is clear.

Of course the threats are not limited to my relationships with comrades, they also warn me that any foreign national who comes to visit me in Croatia in the future, anarchist or not, will be treated as suspicious. And then they get lost in the usual threats concerning my parents, my position as unemployed, possible raids, arrests etc.

Their intention was to intimidate me by threatening to isolate me here in Croatia, far from my ”Italian and Greek friends” (an expression that they used several times). Because they are well aware of the fact that I could not expect any cooperation, activities or whatever with the local movement.

They also tell me that they know other anarchists in Croatia, but that they, unlike me, do not constitute a problem, that I am a unique and singular case for these territories (hinting that other anarchists in Croatia do not care much for my ideas). And that they are also aware of the fact that I was the one to introduce insurrectionalist theories into these territories and beyond years ago, with translations of some texts of Alfredo M. Bonanno. A point that they particularly stressed. Read the rest of this entry »

War against ISIS/Daesh: Defeat in Kobanê is the beginning of the end for ISIS (Kurdistan)

January 27th, 2015

Never forgetting the fallen warriors who fell in battle fighting for freedom, we celebrate this victory over the forces of militant Islam and their geo-political backers. Rid the world of their influence – Continue the struggle against ISIS/Daesh – Wipe them out.

ROJAVA- The city of Kobanê in Rojava (West Kurdistan) was today (Jan 26) completely liberated from Daesh (ISIS) terrorists.

For 134 days our forces have expressed a heroic resistance against Daesh terrorism, and did not let the hopes of our people and all the humanity to fail. Our forces fulfilled the promise of victory, this success is a victory for the Rojava Revolution, a victory for a democratic Syria, a victory for humanity, and a victory for freedom against Daesh barbarism and brutality.

For 134 days, our fighters of the People’s Defense Units (YPG) / Women’s Defense Units (YPJ), men and women of Kurdistan, lovers of freedom from four parts of Kurdistan and other countries, came to a heavy battle, and conducted a great resistance against Daesh’s terrorism. Many of our combatants, young men and women, were martyred during this resistance, but at the end it was the pure spirit of them which prevailed. The People’s Defense Units once again proved that no one could ever conquest the Rojava Revolution, it proved again that it is the authentic force to defend the Kurdish people and other peoples of this region.

The battle for Kobanê was not only a fight between the YPG and Daesh. It was a battle between humanity and barbarity, a battle between freedom and tyranny, it was a battle between all human values and the enemies of humanity. It was the truth, the spirit of freedom, it was the free will of the people and the will of humanity that ultimately succeeded in Kobanê. Read the rest of this entry »

Calais: Fascist demo banned, fascist threat continues… (France)

January 24th, 2015

UPDATE : Fascists blockade Dover pub garden – ANTIFA DEMO REPORT 25th Jan

From rabbleLDN:

The local state authorities (Prefecture) have banned the fascist demo planned in Calais on Sunday by the “Sauvons Calais” group. The fascists have announced on their facebook page that they are going to obey the order and have called off the demo, although asserting that everyone has “freedom of movement [!!!] and can do what they want”.

Based on previous experience, it is likely that some fascists will still come to Calais, perhaps staying in smaller groups and launching surprise attacks rather than trying to gather together in the centre. In the past, nazi groups have lingered some days after announced demos to form “hunting parties” against migrants and anti-fascists.

Given this, and because there is always plenty to do, comrades in Calais still very much welcome support from anyone planning to travel to the town. Get in touch with Calais Migrant Solidarity.

On the English side of the channel, the simultaneous fascist demo in Dover is still very much going ahead. Antifascists will be there to oppose them. See the call-out here.

As swastika-tattooed Kevin Reche, the young leader of “Sauvons Calais”, is personally banned from demonstrating in Calais town centre, it is thought quite possible that he (and other known Calais fash) will take the ferry to Dover to join the demo there. He is the one on the right in the photo above.

Kadıkoy, Istanbul: Anarchist solidarity with imprisoned anarchists in Spanish Prisons (Turkey)

January 23rd, 2015

Last night, in Kadıköy, anarchist groups called ‘Anarchist Front’ and ‘Shadowlesses’, took an action in support of imprisoned anarchists after ‘Operation Pandora’. With black flags and masks, anarchists started to march to a much used street, attacked ATM’s, bank windows and some capitalist shops like Adidas and chanted for solidarity with anarchists prisoners in Spain and all around the world.

During the march, anarchists took down dustbins to blockade roads and attacked some ATM’s and multinational capitalist shops. Also, they spoke out about the situation of imprisoned anarchists in Spain prisons. And they chanted: “İnsurrection, Destruction, Anarchy, Long Live Statelessness of People, Freedom for Anarchist Prisoners”.

Campaign In Support Of Kevan Thakrar – Letter by John Bowden

January 23rd, 2015

From a comrade of ABC Brighton:

The abuse of psychiatry in pathologizing and punishing “difficult” prisoners has a long and disturbing history in the British prison system and is probably the worst example of human rights abuse suffered by some prisoners labelled “challenging” and “unmanageable”.

Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, especially, the role of prison system-hired psychiatrists in assisting in tFrom a comrade of ABC Brighton:he suppression of rebellious prisoners became an established one and often an unlawful one too such as when administering tranquillizing drugs by force purely to assist guards in subduing “troublemakers”. The practice became known as the “liquid cosh”. For particularly determined prisoner “troublemakers” the spectre of maximum-security psychiatric hospitals such as Broadmoor and Rampton could quite easily become a reality and often did when psychiatrists were recruited to apply the necessary pathological labels and facilitate the “nutting-off”, or sectioning under the mental health act, of sane but “difficult” prisoners, Rampton, especially, acquired a notorious reputation for it’s brutal and inhuman treatment of prisoners, administered by prison officer “nurses” and punitive-minded psychiatrists, and was considered amongst long-term prisoners as the worst and most deadly weapon of all in the prison system’s armourer of control and punishment.

Zurich: Angriffe gegen CH-Rustungsexport (Schweiz)

January 22nd, 2015

ENGLISH VERSION

Gestern Nacht haben wir als Beitrag zur Kampagne gegen das World Economic Forum die RUAG Defence (im Gebäude mit der Adresse Im Tiergarten 7 ZH) und die NEOSOFT AG (im Gebäude mit der Adresse Üetlibergstrasse 132 ZH) mit Feuerwerk angegriffen. Der Angriff richtet sich gegen zwei Exponenten der schweizer Rüstungsindustrie, wobei die RUAG ein Bundesunternehmen ist. Abgeschlossene Rüstungsdeals und Militärabkommen am WEF in Davos unterstreichen die Bedeutung, welche dieses Jahrestreffen für diesen Teil der hiesigen Wirtschaft hat.

Per 19. September 2014 wurde die Verordnung über das Kriegsmaterial, welche die Exportbedingungen von schweizer Waffen regelt, von Bundesrat gelockert, nachdem das Parlament im März 2014 sich für diesen Schritt eingesetzt hatte. Hintergrund dieser Lockerung ist die Klage grosser Rüstungskonzerne (wie die RUAG oder MOWAG), dass ihr Umsatz aufgrund strikter Exportbeschränkungen eingebrochen sei. Denn seit 2008 war der Export von Kriegsmaterial an Länder verboten, in denen Menschenrechte “systematisch und schwerwiegend” verletzt würden. Dieser Passus wurde im Herbst vergangenen Jahres gestrichen, nun ist der Waffenexport wieder erlaubt, wenn nur eine geringes Risiko bestehe, dass die Waffen zu “systematischen und schwerwiegenden” Menschenrechtsverletzungen eingesetzt werden.

War against ISIS/Daesh: YPG-YPJ control 70% of Kobane and have liberated the strategic point of Mishtenur Hill (Kurdistan)

For the Press and Public Opinion
People’s Defense Units (YPG) – Media Center

The Liberation of Mishtenur Hill

Kobanî, Jan 19, 2015 – The resistance against vicious attacks of Daesh (ISIS) terrorists who were attempting to occupy Kobanî, continued on the 126th day.

Our forces last night initiated a major campaign against terrorist forces in Kobanî and controlled over 70% of the city. In these course of operations severe and strategic losses were inflicted on terrorist groups.

Our forces of the People’s Defense Units (YPG) along with the Women’s Defense Units YPJ who had earlier secured 70% of Kobanî from terrorist forces, last night conducted a major operation to liberate the Hill Mishtenur. In this campaign backed by the International Coalition’s air support, heavy fighting broke out between our forces and terrorist elements. After a direct confrontation, our units managed to liberate the Mishtenur Hill. Despite all the attempts made by terrorists to stop the advance, our units progressed effectively, and took the full control of the strategic hill in southeast Kobanî. In this operation which lasted until the morning hours, more than 40 members of terrorist forces were killed, no casualties were suffered by our units during this campaign.
