Solidarity action for Nikos Romanos and Tamara Sol (Chile)

November 27th, 2014

325 receives news from comrades in Peurto Mont, Chile:

Greetings from Chile

In the first hours of November 25, 2014, we dropped two banners in S.Allende Avenue in Puerto Montt, as a response to Antiprison Solidarity and Agitation Weeks and the International Call for Revolutionary Solidarity with Comrade Nikos Romanos, who is in hunger strike since November 10, fighting for a breath of freedom outside the walls of Koridallos fucking prison. In the other hand, soon will start Comrade Tamara Sol trial, to whom we warmly hugh and send strength!. As you know, she is being accused for the shooting to a bank guard as a revenge act for the murder of the Comrade Sebastian Oversluij on December 11, 2013.

The banners read:

- “Tamara Sol ¡To the street! And all the enemies of Domination jailed by State in Mexico, Greece, Italy, Chile, USA…

- “Strength, Nikos Romanos, in Hunger strike”

There are neither limits nor barriers that can stop the multiform anarchist action, just excuses!

Durham Actions in Solidarity with Anti-Police Struggle (USA)

November 27th, 2014

325 receives and transmits from North Carolina:

On Tuesday night November 25th, a group of people enraged by the police murder of
Mike-Mike Brown, and inspired by the rebellious acts that have spread across the
country, vandalized the Durham National Guard Armory on Stadium Dr. Messages were
painted on the front doors and over a dozen windows were smashed out.

The National Guard is now on the streets of St. Louis and Ferguson, continuing the
racist cops’ war on behalf of the rich against the poor.

This act followed an exciting night of protest in downtown Durham, in which a
diverse hundreds of people spoke out about their experiences at the hands of the
police, blocked streets, set off fireworks, spray-painted buildings with anti-police
and anti-prison messages, and blocked the northbound side of Highway 147.

We hope all of these acts contribute to a continued escalation in local, combative
struggle against racism, capitalism, and the state.

For anarchy,
XXX

Letter from anarchists Amélie and Fallon (Mexico)

November 26th, 2014

via act for freedom now!:

We have been in prison for over 10 months now. In recent weeks they have passed two sentences on us: federal and common. On November 1 Judge Manuel Munoz Bastida of the eighth federal court of Reclusorio Sur handed down a sentence of seven and a half years’ prison on charges of “Arson to a public building with people inside,” this for the damage caused to the “Mexican communication and transport offices”.

The “people inside” are the two federal pigs that were in charge of the security of the place. Then, on November 7, we received the second sentence for the common court charges of “damage to private property in a group” and “breach of the peace”. These charges relate to the attack that occurred at the car dealership of Nissan. It being on the corner of the STC where we burned the cars.

Judge Margarita Bastida Negrete of the court of common law # 18 of Reclusorio East sentenced us to two years and seven months in prison, joining the two charges so that material damage and breach of the peace became damages of 108 000 pesos. According to the law, for all sentences of less than 5 years, first time offenders are entitled to certain benefits. Read the rest of this entry »

Revenge for Rémi, street fires for nuclear industry, prison society and the European Green Capital (UK)

November 26th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

French police have killed Rémi Fraisse while they try to rout a combative forest occupation that prevents the Sivens dam. We have burned a vehicle in the service of the French multinational GDF (who work towards the new nuclear reactor not far away at Hinkley Point on top of other nuclear projects in many countries, force dams on irreplaceable Amazonian indigenous lands with the support of Brazil’s military, provide facility management for the police force in this region, run utilities on the Shetland Islands for one of the biggest oil and gas terminals in Europe, manage multiple French prisons, and all around design technologies which attempt to disguise industrial capitalism as sustainable development for the same banks and commercial entities as always).

This was in the Long Ashton area, where we then also burned an audacious 4×4, two luxury sports cars, and a vehicle of OCS (who are considered one of the top security companies in the UK, providing guard personnel, patrols, CCTV instillation and monitoring, etc.). Read the rest of this entry »

War against ISIS/Daesh: International solidarity to the fighters in Kobane (Kurdistan)

November 26th, 2014

Victory to the fighters in Kobane – Death to the fascists-mercenaries of the ISIS/Daesh.

YPG media centre

Kubani- November 25 2014.

The attacks by ISIS/Daesh to occupy Kobane continued yesterday on the 71st day. While the People’s Defense Units and Women’s Defence Units (YPG/YPJ) are continuing their operations, the scum of Daesh are now pushed on to the defensive due to this military campaign.

After suffering heavy losses over the last few days, the Daesh on the Eastern front of Kobane are now fully on the defensive. A short period of fighting was experienced last night, but the results of the clashes are not confirmed.

In South Kobane an operation was conducted by YPG/YPJ units against several occupied areas. In this action 4 positions were liberated and ISIS were forced to retreat from the area. in this battle 7 Daesh were killed, and a number of weapons were captured by Peshmerga forces (see video below).

International Organization for Migration (IOM) headquarters attacked in Geneva (Switzerland)

November 26th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

In the night between the 20th and 21st of November 2014, we smashed the windows and covered the entrance of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) headquarters in Geneva with paint as an act of solidarity with the migrants they survey and try to control.

Posing as a humanitarian organization, the IOM actually supports their fundingmember states in maintaining their borders and economic interests at the cost ofhuman lives and freedom. In addition to states, their corporate donors: Chevron,DOW, and UBS all have their starring roles in ecological and economic catastrophesthat displace people from their homes.

We attack the IOM for closely working with Frontex to build up “Fortress Europe“,their involvement in (Australia’s offshore) detention prisons, providing states with data on migration routes and migrants’ identities, their so-called “voluntary return programs“ that bribe migrants to return to their points of origin, and for all other material and technical support they provide in the international regime of migration control.

This was only a small act of solidarity, but the nights are cold and dark and we rather smash any part of the state’s constructed borders and the glass buildings of their guardians than to sleep through the winter.

We remember the 19 July 2013 riot at the Nauru Detention Center and it reminds us that the only response to that kind of imprisonment is destruction.

No person is il/legal! Close the camps!

p.s. Greetings to our unknown friends that seem to have been out in Geneva at around the same time painting the French Consulate blood-red in memory of Rémi F!

War against ISIS/Daesh: International solidarity to the fighters in Kobane (Kurdistan)

November 21st, 2014

Victory to the fighters in Kobane – Death to the fascists-mercenaries of the ISIS/Daesh.

YPG Media Centre

Kobanî / November 20, 2014 – The terrorist attacks by the ‘ISIS’ mercenaries to occupy Kobanî continued yesterday on the 66th day. Yet our forces of the People’s Defense Units (YPG) and the Women’s Defense Units YPJ have limited the terrorists’ attacks, and are continuing their operations. The terrorists however are constantly shelling the residential districts of the city center.

On the eastern front of Kobanî, our forces last night carried out several operations against the terrorists in the Sukul Hal area, the municipality street, and the Azadî (Freedom) square. The operations on the three locations were effectively conducted where 7 terrorists were killed.

On the southern front, our troops operated against several areas that had been occupied by the terrorists. In these operation a motorcycle was destroyed and 9 terrorists were killed.

In the last night’s tasks one of our comrades who played a major role to accomplish the operations, fought heroically and was martyred in action.

International Call for Revolutionary Solidarity with Anarchist Nikos Romanos on hunger strike since 10/11/14 (Greece)

November 21st, 2014

via Act for Freedom Now!:

Imprisoned anarchist Nikos Romanos has been on hunger strike since Monday November 10 demanding his right to educational day release from prison. From 17th November comrade Giannis Mihailidis has also been on hunger strike in solidarity with his comrade.

Their struggle is also ours, whatever they decide we are with them as we have been from the start. From the moment of their capture the comrades have vindicated their anarchist individualities with passion and dignity throughout the ordeals reserved for them in the cesspits of the State. For us of act for freedom now every translated word, paragraph and page expresses our rage and desire to give a strong flaming hug to the comrades held hostage in the hell-holes of the state. Distance is irrelevant when we speak of solidarity. That is why we are calling, as of now, for international revolutionary solidarity for Nikos.

We will not leave any comrade alone in the hands of the state.

SOLIDARITY IS OUR WEAPON

*That night we kept our eyes fixed on the horizon and saw many falling stars drawing their own chaotic paths. And we counted them over and over, we made wishes, calculated the odds. We knew that our desire for a free life had to step over all that oppresses us, murders us, destroys us, so we dived into the void just like the shooting stars we were observing. Since then innumerable stars have fallen, perhaps it’s time for our star to fall, who knows? If we had the answers ready, we wouldn’t have become what we are, but selfish bastards who would teach people how to become rodents that eat each other as they do today. At least we still remain implacable and stubborn like the people of our kind. And those of us who closed their eyes in pain and travelled far continue to keep their eyes stuck on that night sky we also observed.
And they watch us fall, beautiful and shining stars.

Now it’s our turn.

Now, without hesitation, we fall.

As of Monday, November 10th, 2014 I begin a hunger strike without taking a step back, with anarchy forever in my heart.

Responsible for each day of hunger strike, and whatever happens from this point forward, is the prison board, namely the prosecutor Nikolaos Pimenidis, the director Charalabia Koutsomichali as well as the social work assistant.

SOLIDARITY MEANS ATTACK

PS.
To all the armchair “fighters”, professional humanists, “sensitive” intellectual and spiritual personages: good riddance to you in advance.

Anarchists from Act for freedom now!

A new criminal case started against Mikalai Dziadok (Belarus)

November 21st, 2014

325 receives and transmits from ABC Belarus:

On November 20 Mikalai Dziadok was charged with malicious disobedience to the demands of prison administration (art.411). This became known from a state lawyer, who had been called to attend the procedure. The case was started on November 13. In the near future the anarchist will be transferred to the pre-trial detention centre as a defendant.

Before that Dziadok had spent 8 days in a punishment cell, and was transferred to the solitary confinement.

The prisoner should have been set free on March 3, 2015 after 4.5 years in prison. The new case can add a year to his final sentence.

As you know, the presidential elections are to take place in autumn of 2015. Lukashenko does his best to neutralise his political opponents, especially anarchists, who fight against any power and are ready to act radically.

Nikos Romanos: Liberating Journeys of Attack (Greece)

November 15th, 2014

via contrainfo:

The following text is intended to be the continuation of a dialogue on the tools of anarchist insurgency and the ways of organizing ourselves; a dialogue that was initiated at an international anarchist encounter somewhere in the countryside of France and now continues from a prison cell in Greece.

The opinions expressed here are my own personal views, so it should be clear that they promote a particular position on the issue. However it is not desired to have one position prevail over all the others; what matters is how the various different, yet complementary, points of view communicate and interact with each other. In the face of an enemy that’s very flexible as regards the use and multitude of means and forms of attack, the diversity of considerations and practices on the part of anarchists is self-evident. Whichever different perspectives cannot be promoted dogmatically but rather based on a rationale of multifaceted attack.

First we need to talk about the very concept of organization, a word quite misunderstood in anarchist circles.

We face an enemy with complex and complicated functions. One of the main characteristics that make the enemy powerful is the constant evolution and organization of the social paranoia we are experiencing today: a technological, military, architectural, civil, industrial, economic, scientific organization. Every aspect of this world is being organized, constantly correcting its imperfections through an intelligent system which has a great number of servants. Read the rest of this entry »

Anti-Pipeline Graffiti Raid Update: VPD claiming $500,000 in damages not including graffiti (Canada)

November 15th, 2014

by indyvan, Vancouver Media Coop

On June 3rd, 2014, Vancouver Police staged a “guns-drawn” raid against a house of known indigenous and anarchist opponents to the energy policies of the central government and its corporate sponsors.

The ostensible reason for the raid was given as the search for graffiti materials believed to be tied to an ongoing “no pipelines” tagging campaign. One person was arrested, but released without charges or conditions.

The Vancouver Police Department returned on June 12 at around 9am with a warrant to take a DNA blood sample from the accused. The accused was again released without charges. There has been no info on the result of the DNA blood sample nearly 5 months after. Read the rest of this entry »

Appeal to support Ilya Romanov (Russia)

November 8th, 2014

Dear friends! We ask you to support Ilya Romanov, Russian anarchist accused of ‘terrorism’, who has already spent a year in prison. ABC-Moscow included him in the list of anarchist political prisoners.

On 26 October 2013 46-year-old anarchist Ilya Romanov was wounded in the city of Nizhnii Novgorod. The explosion which occurred late at night severely injured his left hand and burned his face. Ilya was taken to hospital where doctors amputated his arm. Romanov explained to the police that he unwarily used a pyrotechnic device. In December 2013 Romanov was charged with Article 205 and Article 30 of the Criminal Code of Russian Federation (“attempt to commit a terrorist attack”). Read the rest of this entry »

Letter by anarchist prisoner P. Michalakoglou from Nigrita prisons (Greece)

November 4th, 2014

Inter Arma received and translated:

Monday, October 13, 2014

At 5.30 in the morning while I was sleeping in my cell at the basement of the F wing of Korydallos prison, along with the unjustifiably detained comrade and friend M.B., I hear someone calling my surname. I wake up and see the wing’s people-guard saying: “Transfer”. I angrily ask again: “What transfer?” and he responds “Emergency transfer” showing me a paper with names among which only mine was written with a pen. Once more I realize that the war continues inside the prisons. Then they took me alone in the so called fridge -”waiting area”- without knowing the prison I was being transferred to. Four hours later another people-guard calls me and shows to me the paper for my transfer to Nigritas prison in Serres. Read the rest of this entry »

Ávila prison: Words from comrade Mónica Caballero (Spain)

November 4th, 2014

The State calls its own violence Law; that of the individual crime. Lawbreaking, then – so the individual’s violence is called; and only by crime does he break the State’s violence when he thinks that the State is not above him, but rather he is above the State.Max Stirner

These days, almost 10 months since my incarceration in the prisons of the Spanish State, I needed to give out these words to you dear comrades, who struggle for the abolition of every authority and the integral development of every individual.

Today, at the security level, anarchism is one of the major concerns of many Western (and some Eastern) States; in this witch-hunt aimed at informal antiauthoritarians anything goes, this repressive hysteria is inherent in the conquest of total liberation, it is as old as the acratist ideas. Therefore, a momentary or prolonged visit to one of the placid monuments of human extermination awaits all those who try to confront or simply question the prevailing order.

Thessaloniki: Claim of responsibility for a bank arson (Greece)

November 4th, 2014

Act for freedom now! receives:

When the enemy seems to be standing up well and uses all means to crash anything opposite, then the attack towards him, his symbols and infrastructures is the only way. Wherever we look we see various types of authority, either called cop, judge either called school, bank, church, prison. Institutions of a rotten system that every day remind us that we are not free. Their real value will be shown with their destruction and through ashes and wreckage their beauty will be shown. No more compromises fit here right now. Their place should be taken over by determination and continuous struggle.

In the undeclared war which is taking place, when there isn’t direct usage of weapons, then other means are mobilised in order to hit the mind and the soul of every unrepentant revolutionary.

The new high security prisons are aiming right at that, his extermination. When its their turn, judges and prosecutors give revengeful long sentences. Prosecutor Olga Smirli confirmed her role at the trial for the ATE bank (now Pireaus Bank) in Pyrgetos Larisa giving away 16 years to G.NAXAKIS and G.SARAFOUDIS, with the only evidence being their political identity.

Either the two comrades participated in the robbery, either not, we are with them and we dedicate them the attack on Pireaus Bank on the early hours of the 10th of September in Sykies, Thessaloniki. This act is a small sign of solidarity and a message that everything continues…

Lets fight, everyone in their own way, forcefully, with the means that they have, till the end, until total liberation.
