‘Communization: The senile decay of anarchy (or re-inventing anarchy)’ – Fragment of the unpublished pamphlet “FAI Reloaded” by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire : Imprisoned Members Cell (Greece)

June 1st, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

Communization: The senile decay of anarchy (or re-inventing anarchy) – fragment of the unpublished pamphlet “FAI Reloaded” by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.

i) Frozen Marxism

Today’s era smells like engine oil, cheap labor sweat and naphthalene of the morality of voluntary obedience… We do not want to be defined by the culture of techno-industrial fascism, the white uniforms of scientists, the neckties of technocrats, the eager silences of ordinary people, the stupid smiles of consumers… We do not match with the aesthetics of the glass world of flat television screens, the digital imitation of the life of social media, the display windows of lifestyle, the lens of security cameras. We do not fit in the society of captivity, the police checks of our identification papers, the supervision of security guards, the laws of the judges, the locked doors of prisons. We do not settle for the average normality dictated by morality, we don’t amuse our boredom with psychotropic drugs, we aren’t covered by the coldness of empty relations, we don’t read… Marx.

Today we live to the rhythm of a generalized crisis. Our daily life is throttled from the tyranny of numbers. Our life resembles an accounting book, whose calculations always find it deficient and indebted. They overwhelm us with financial terms and definitions, one half of which are unknown and the other half of no interest to us. The wandering charlatans of all ideologies, roam from one financial conference to the other and bombard us with ramblings and often incomprehensible interviews-speeches, each of them presenting his own social antidote to the economic crisis. On the shelves of the ideological supermarket every faithful consumer will find the antidote that suits him, in all shades. There are “revolutionary” antidotes, even “anarchist” ones. In Greece, the neo-communists, ex-anarchists, mix in the cauldron of ideologies anarchist labels, with plenty of frozen Marxism, anti-imperialism and a pinch of disguised national liberation. The new tension of “serious” anarchy dresses itself in a formal way and launches the trend of anti-capitalist struggle on a red background. The rhetoric of the neo-communists – “anarchists” talks about everything. In an effort to build a social marketing of propaganda for the masses, it promotes generalizations sanctifying the “oppressed people” and “workers” who, obviously, for them are “not accountable” for their responsibilities and silences, uses covertly socially palatable national references, such as “the Greek people”, “our country” and promises “social salvation” with the coming of post-revolutionary society, preaching in the assemblies of the need for centralized-structures… It seems that some neo-communists already rehearse their future offices. Perhaps, this what they train themselves for now, selling hegemony, experience coming from age and the wisdom of a leader within the anarchist milieu.

20-22 June : Internationale Aktionstage mit Marco Camenisch (Switzerland)

June 1st, 2015

Internationale Aktionstage: Marco libero!

Wir rufen für die Tage vom 20. – 22. Juni zu solidarischen Aktionen mit Marco Camenisch auf, der seit 1991 ununterbrochen in Italien oder der Schweiz im Gefängnis sitzt. Marco ist ein ungebrochener grün-anarchistischer Revolutionär mit einer politischen Geschichte, die zurück in die 1970er-Jahre reicht. Wegen Sprengstoffangriffen gegen Hochspannungsleitungen wurde er erstmals inhaftiert, ihm gelang die Flucht. Erst nach Jahren in der Illegalität wurde er 1991 in Italien bei einer Personenkontrolle verhaftet, er sass dort bis 2002 im Knast. Verurteilt wurde er unter anderem wiederum wegen militanten Aktionen gegen Hochspannungsleitungen. 2002 wurde er dann in die Schweiz ausgeliefert, wo er einerseits die Reststrafe seiner allerersten Verurteilung abzusitzen hatte, andererseits aber wegen dem Tod eines Grenzwächters verurteilt wurde. Marco hat immer wieder wiederholt, dass es nicht sein Toter ist. Read the rest of this entry »

Comrade Tamara Sol: Public Communique + Update on Transfer to High Security Prison ($hile)

May 31st, 2015

Tamara Sol Farís Vergara is Transferred to High Security Prison

This Wednesday, May 27th, 2015, Tamara Sol Farías Vergara was transferred to the ill-named “Centre for Feminine Orientation” (COF) located at Vicuña Mackenna and Capitan Prat streets in San Joaquin, Santiago.

The prison guard, Jenny Muñoz Gajardo, a Commandant who is in charge of the incarceration of over 500 women in the [prison] centre of extermination of “San Miguel,” is a loyal representative of police brutality and is paid millions of pesos to employ the logic of prison punishment and the control over people’s lives. This officer let her rage out with Tamara Sol and did not let her say goodbye to her cellmate, taking her out forcefully, without giving Sol the chance to pack her personal belongings (her prison mates gathered up what they could in a bag that Sol has yet to receive). We are told that Tamara Sol resisted with punches, screams and spits while being forced out by the prison guards, and was then handcuffed and taken to solitary confinement around 6pm.

‘Globalizing the Intifada’ By William T. Hathaway

May 31st, 2015

The invaders have surrounded and attacked us, conquered here and there, and built their bases in our lands. So we attack the invaders where we can, determined to retake our lands and drive them out. We would prefer not to be warriors. We would rather raise our children in the ways of kindness. But for our children to have a future, we must now be warriors. So be it.

In Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan this war is most intense, but it is a international war, and people of every religion and race are under attack. The capitalist class is assaulting us worldwide, throttling our hopes of decent lives. We’re now all in the same boat, a global Mavi Marmara, so our resistance must be global. Our foe is not only the Zionists but the forces of Western imperialism of which they are a part. To survive, we must set aside our religious and political differences and form a united front. Shias, Sunnis, secularists and socialists need to work together to defeat our common enemy. If we join in solidarity, we can win. Otherwise the imperialists will continue to divide and rule.

Non-violent opposition is important but not sufficient. To be effective in this war, it must be coupled with armed struggle. Read the rest of this entry »

Lions of Rojava: New page for foreign volunteers in the fight against ISIS/Daesh (Kurdistan)

May 31st, 2015

New page for Lions of Rojava (the last one was shut down):

https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Lions-Of-Rojava/845769785510897

Also see:

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Volunteers-for-the-Lions-of-Rojava/740646939367672

Note: The YPG recruits volunteers through attraction to the cause and does not in any shape of form attempt to indoctrinate or “groom” people to travel to Rojava to join our cause. We are not like Daesh [ISIS]. The Lions of Rojava clearly explains to each individual the reality of the conflict in Rojava, the risks of travelling to the region and the expectations of the YPG. The safety of all volunteers is paramount. We always encourage the thousands of young westerners who have approached us to consider other ways to help the Kurdish and Ezidi people in the struggle against Daesh such as donating to charity or volunteering with humanitarian groups.
The YPG is not a militant militia, we are a Peoples Protection Unit that is organized under democratic, secular, gender equal and ecological principles that has formed in the absence of a functional government in Syria and the presence of a barbaric extremist Islamist threat. Our goal is to liberate all people from the tyranny and evil of Daesh and to construct a free and stable and democratic country.

About the slander by the Syrian Coalition – Statement of the General Command of the People’s Defense Units (Kurdistan)

May 31st, 2015

To the Media and Public Opinion – 30 May 2015

National Coalition of Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces are pursuing a speech disgraced the honor of the Syrian Revolution and derails it from its real track

Every victory for the People’s Defense Units (YPG) at the expense of the terrorist organization of Daesh (ISIS) in Syria, with the air support by the International Coalition Forces, Syrian Coalition emerges statements (most recently on 30 May 2015) of trumped-up charges and baseless slanders. Also to discredit the achievements of the YPG, and mislead public opinion from horrific massacres committed by ISIS against the Syrian people in all their diversity – all serve the terrorist organization of ISIS.

The irresponsible actions of the Syrian Coalition intentionally distort the facts to cover up defeats and ISIS terrorism, and try to blow into the fire to stimulate hatred among the Syrian people. Syrian Coalition is pursuing a speech disgraced the honor of the Syrian Revolution and derails it from its real track and their aim to spread the spirit of sectarianism, ethnic and sectarian strife in Syria which is multi-ethnic and doctrines, to serve foreign agendas who do not want good and peace for Syrian people.

Communes In Rojava Growing Daily (Kurdistan)

May 29th, 2015

The emancipatory economic model which serves as the economic pillar in the Kurdish Popular Leader Abdullah Öcalan’s proposal around Democracy Autonomy and which aims at building a democratic, ecologically balanced society with egalitarian gender relations is coming to life every day in Rojava, according to an article in Özgür Gündem.

The Şehîd (‘Martyr’) Fadil Commune founded in the Cindirêsê district of the Efrîn Canton has replaced the logic of the capitalist market with that of a people’s market. The district market carries the distinction of being the first such market in the region and can meet the needs of residents in the region every Thursday. The market, which offers its service to the people on very low profit margins, reinvests of its income to the benefit of the local people. The market supplies such basic goods as fruits and vegetables, clothing and other textiles, as well as a myriad of other daily supplies. Speaking on the subject of expansion Ehmed Şea, a member of the Economic Committee of the Şehîd Fadil Commune, explained that “founded with the support of the district market’s service committee we occupy an area of 2,500 M2. As of now we have used 500 m2 for the people’s market. Because the central market was located for from our local population we decided to build a district market in our neighborhood. We want to develop further based on economic activities suitable to a communal model.”

‘Commando Emile Henry’ takes responsibility for an incendiary attack against the offices of Groupama Insurance and McQuilling Partners shipping company (Greece)

May 29th, 2015

(Athens, 22/05/2015)

Inter Arma received and translated:

“My hands don’t get used to the artificial connection in virtual universes. Connected lives in wireless networks, my eyes search for the eternal fire of rebellion among the multitude of corpses and only in isolated gazes, the conscious individual emerges with dagger eyes that resists dying in the democratic cemetery. Before going to sleep I embrace chaos as an idea that liberates my body and my mind Because after all, it makes me feel alive. I do not want to search for the grail that will liberate future societies. My fingers search for the bloody flight of the destruction of the chains of the rhythmic fire, of the close fire of power and its masters.”

Mauricio Morales Duarte

This day, six years ago, comrade Mauricio Morales was heading to the school for prison guards in Santiago, in distant Chile, when suddenly the bomb, which he intended to place there, exploded prematurely depriving him of his life. Six years later, today at dawn, we carried out a double arson attack as a minimum tribute to the memory of the comrade.

We mined a two-storey building on Vouliagmenis avenue in Elliniko, where the offices of the insurance company Groupama Insurance (a subsidiary of the multinational banking group with the same name) and the offices of the multinational shipping company McQuilling Partners are co-located, placing four improvised incendiary devices. With this action we do not anticipate an impact on or the understanding by neither the willingly obedient mass of peaceful citizens nor the irredentist “professionals” of the movement. Of course, the recognition and appropriation of anarchist violent action by young comrades is a positive perspective. However, we do not see this as a condition or constraint for going on the offensive. That would be hypocritical, because part of our mentality and orientation, beyond the theoretical constitution and practice, remains the constant satisfaction of our instincts and desires, something which is far from negligible.

July 25: International Day of Solidarity with Antifascist Prisoners – Call from NYC Antifa (USA)

May 29th, 2015

From NYC ABC:

Our comrades in NYC Antifa are calling for an international day of
solidarity with antifa political prisoners. Below is their call for
endorsements.

On Saturday, July 25, 2015 antifascists will fight against those who— in
the government or in the streets, dream of imposing their fascist and
other Far Right nationalist nightmares on the rest of us. Throughout the
world, Islamophobic, anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, and racist bigotries
are on the rise. Antifas are on the frontline in confronting these
reactionary politics, and we will not forget our comrades imprisoned in
the course of this struggle. The July 25 International Day of Solidarity
with Antifascist Prisoners originated in 2014 as a day of Solidarity
with Jock Palfreeman, an Australian who is imprisoned in Bulgaria for
defending two Romani men from an attack by fascist football hooligans.
Groups around the world took action: holding demonstrations, benefits
supporting the Bulgarian Prisoners Association, writing to Jock, and
talking about the plight of the Romani and Sinti people in general. In
2015 we would like to expand this day of solidarity to all antifascist
prisoners around the world. We encourage groups to take the day to plan
an event of their choice— whether it is a letter-writing, demonstration,
benefit, or other action, and to focus on the prisoners and related
issues that are of most importance to them locally. For now, this is a
call for endorsements by international groups, organizations,
collective, and formations; a formal announcement is forthcoming.
ENDORSEMENTS CAN BE SENT TO: nycantifascistaction@gmail.com

If there is an antifa prisoner you support, please e-mail us with his or
her details and the language(s) they can read.

No Pasaran!

Prague: SRB – ‘Network Revolutionary Cells’ claim arson of police car (Czech Republic)

May 29th, 2015

On Friday 15th May a cop car parked outside the police station on Hostivařska Road in Prague was set on fire. This is the result of premeditated sabotage carried out by the M.A.P. cell. We were following the actions of the Network of Revolutionary Cells, but hesitated before turning our anger into direct action of attack. For a long time we were tormented by fear and indecision.

Then a change of direction happened. On 28th April the police launched an attack on the anarchist movement of the country we live in,and this facilitated our decision to act. We think other choices of this kind will follow. Perhaps a burnt out police car represents just a small step compared with what must be done to put an end to capitalism.

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”.
