Letter from Nataly Casanova, Enrique Guzmán and Juan Flores (Chile)

November 19th, 2017

Translation note: the following letter written by the imprisoned anarchist comrades Nataly, Enrique and Juan, was written for the SOLIDARIDAD A FLOR DE PIEL tattoo and body art convention that was held in solidarity with the prisoners of the social war in Santiago on November 4th.

These words were born and flew from the prison cells of San Miguel, the special high security unit and the former pententiary, to send a greeting of complicity that we dedicate to the comrades who have organized and given life to the SOLIDARIDAD A FLOR DE PIEL tattoo and body art convention…

With these first words from within the torture centres, we would like to send fraternal and complicit greetings to those who, at the intersection of rebellion and insubordinate creativity, organized and participated in this anti-prison initiative…a solidarity initiative for those who feel the bitter taste of prison every day – the anger, the frustration and the indignation of not being able to materialise the war because they are surrounded by bars, cameras and guards… Read the rest of this entry »

Letter from imprisoned anarchist comrade Alfredo Cospito (Italy)

November 19th, 2017

Originally published in Vetriolo, anarchist journal, number 1 / Autumn 2017 (this text is also online here).

Note from Insurrection News: This English version of Alfredo’s text was translated by us from the French language translation by the comrades from Attaque.

Note from Vetriolo: Alfredo wrote this text of salutation for the number zero edition of Vetriolo, in November-December 2016. This letter, as is well known, was blocked by the prison censorship. Now we can publish it. We recall that in recent months the censorship has increased a lot, a tightening vise obviously ordered by the Prosecutor Sparagna, and not just the simple zeal of the prison guards. Apparently there are definite orders about what can and cannot be sent or received (Vetriolo, for example, was not received by anybody) [comrades imprisoned for Operation Scripta Manent]. To protest the censorship,
Alfredo went on a hunger strike from May 3 to 13.

Break the isolation!

******

With charges that could lead to 30 years of prison time hanging over my head like a sword of Damocles, the need to communicate projects and reflections may seem absurd. Under the influence of censorship, which modifies all that I write and say, the fact that I am continuing imperturbably to communicate and write reflections that inevitably lend themselves to repression, may seem stupid and insane. It is stupidity and madness that I cannot do without, to feel alive and active.

One choice, back against the wall: continue the fight. Continue with all means at my disposal.

The inspiration for writing this article was given to me by the inquisitor Sparagna, who during his ‘monologue-interrogation’, maintained, with barely concealed embarrassment, that he would have broken us [the 22 comrades under investigation from Operation Scripta Manent] by isolation, thanks to the ‘scorched earth’ that the anarchist movement would have made around us in Italy.

Network of Revolutionary Cells: ‘Call to Fight: Sabotage the activities of those bastards!’ (Czech Republic)

November 19th, 2017

We see that the repressive campaign on the anarchist movement does not cease. Examples are enough: The operation Fénix case in the Czech Republic, the case of the Warsaw Three, charges of bank robbery in Aachen, courts with rebels against the G20 summit in Hamburg and other cases.

Cops, judges, prosecutors, mass-media. They are haunted, imprisoned, robbed, manipulated. This is a challenge to all Revolutionary cells and other groups and individuals. Do sabotages the activities of those bastards. Turn them into terrain, technology and structures. Organize resistance. Support the fugitive and their loved ones.

What destroys us will stop by fighting.

The goal is clear = Freedom, justice, anarcho-communism.

PDF: “La Bomba” #23 – Santiago (Chile)

November 19th, 2017

Portada 23

PDF: Sale el número 23 del boletín “La Bomba”

*Santiago – Chile*

Para continuar con la idea final de la editorial pasada, queremos decir
que la recopilación de reivindicaciones de sabotajes, atentados, las
noticias formuladas etc. son con la intención de generar un archivo
online y material, para que las diversas ideas expresadas desde la
acción y las noticias lleguen a más compañerxs en la calle, como en
prisión -quienes no todxs tienen acceso a la contrainformación vía web-.
Estas recopilaciones son parte de una línea antiautoritaria, acciones
que sacamos con sus respectivas fuentes y otras anónimas que no
necesariamente pueden ser parte de la lucha anárquica pero de las cuales
vemos similitudes y son afines a esta iniciativa. Read the rest of this entry »

Attack on the passport office of the police in Malmö (Sweden)

November 19th, 2017

On the 17th of November, the leaders of the nations of the European Union gathered in Gothenburg for the EU summit. The EU maintains its external borders vigilantly, leading to countless deaths of people trying to enter Europe. Internally, the border controls returned during the latest “refugee-crisis”, and at the Swedish border they are still in place. Borders and deportations protect the rich and powerful of the European societies, at the price of murder and incarceration, and they manifest themselves clearly in passports and police.

The police willingly do the insidious work of controlling the borders and carrying out deportations. At the same time, the EU gives the police forces of the member states extended possibilities for repressive cooperation, enabling them to exchange information and issue arrest warrants for sought-after people across the EU.

The police mobilized massively to protect the EU summit in Gothenburg, so we decided to strike somewhere else, away from their attention.

For these reasons, and many more, we attacked the passport office of the police in Malmö with rocks on the night of the EU summit.

We send warm rebellious greetings to those who fight against borders and nationstates and to those who fought the police on the 30th of September when Nazis were marching in Gothenburg, especially to those who are now jailed or going to trial for the events on that day.

About “Operation Érebo” – Agitations and anarchic reflections (Bra$il)

November 19th, 2017

Translated by Tormentas de Fogo.

17/11/2017

“Operation Érebo” the earth moves.

Agitations and anarchic reflections the wind blows.”

At dawn on October 25, 2017 the weather darkened for the anarchists of Porto Alegre. The Civil Police with the so called “Operation Érebo [Erebus]” launched raids and assaults televised by the local media and transmitted by the speakers of the system in maximum volume.

From this police reaction, from the show and media scrape, and from the agitation in the anarchist orbit a thousand and one needs, urgencies, ideas, impulses and feelings have crossed us. From this reflection was born this will to communicate. We point our determination against the enemy and we strengthen our pace with those who live anarchy in its positions and practices.

Our natural tendency to chaos.

Salatiga: Demo in solidarity with West Papuan struggle (Indonesia)

November 16th, 2017

Freedom for Papua

15 November 2017

Solidarity between various alliances including Libertarian Student Federation (FML), Papuan Student Alliance (AMP) in the small town of Salatiga, at the Satya Wacana Christian University. This solidarity is a nationwide call from the KNPB (National Committee of West Papua) in order to give pressure to the Indonesian government to give rights to West Papuan independence and autonomy. In this case, anarchists and libertarians limited their solidarity for the full autonomy and freedom of West Papua from Indonesian state and not supporting the creation of West Papua as a nation-state.

Anarkis/FML

Salatiga (Jawa Tengah)

Solidaritas antar berbagai aliansi termasuk diantaranya Federasi Mahasiswa Libertarian (FML), Aliansi Mahasiswa Papua (AMP) terjadi di kota kecil Salatiga, tepatnya di Universitas Kristen Satya Wacana. Solidaritas ini merupakan seruan dari KNPB (Komite Nasional Papua Barat) dalam skala nasional untuk menekan pemerintah Indonesia agar memberikan hak untuk menentukan pilihan bangsa Papua Barat. Dalam hal ini, kaum anarkis dan libertarian, membatasi solidaritasnya dalam bentuk otonomi bangsa Papua Barat dan bukannya disintergrasi yang akan menciptakan negara baru lagi.

“Since my arrival in Greenville two-and-a-half years ago, my
communications with the world have been made incredibly difficult and at
times impossible. I have been repeatedly denied books, magazines,
letters and pictures. It’s standard operating procedure that my mail –
be it my email or snail mail — is habitually days, weeks and even
months late. It is not at all uncommon for my mail, both incoming and
outgoing, to simply never arrive.” Read the rest of this entry »

Tampere: Trucks torched at dairy company (Finland)

November 14th, 2017

14.11.17

We wanted to dedicate this action to all our kidnapped friends, or those who have been kidnapped once, by setting fire to 4 trucks from one of the biggest milk companys in finland named valio. The action took place in a city named tampere in the early morning hours of this tuesday. Many of our cell have wanted to target this company for a long time. We think that it is not necessary to explain too much the reason of our selection: the milk industry has a long history of destruction, cruelty and torture on this planet, its ecosystem and their habitants. Like our friends the cows and the forests. Who are cruelly abused and murdered or destroyed by the production of milk.”

Trial ending for Juan, Nataly and Enrique – EN/ES (Chile)

November 14th, 2017

During the last fortnight of November it is expected that the process initiated under the anti-terrorist law for the attacks against the Subcenter Escuela Militar, Los Dominicos metro and two police stations in Santiago will come to an end.

The so-called Bombs Case 2 started more than two years ago against the compañerxs Enrique Guzman, Nataly Casanova and Juan Flores, who have been under 7 months of trial under the anti-terrorist law. It is finally in these days where the process is ending. After the closing arguments, the verdict it is to be expected where the criminal court will decide innocence or guilt and under what crime, and then – in case of being condemned guilty – to dictate the sentences.

Athens: Armed attacks against Mexican and French Embassies – Communique from the ‘Organisation of Revolutionary Self-Defense’ – ‘Towards a New International Revolutionary Movement’ (Greece)

November 14th, 2017

From Athens IMC, Actforfreedomnow:

On Sunday 31st of August, a little before dawn, we carried out an armed intervention against the Mexican state, by shooting at the building of its embassy in Athens. On Wednesday 9th of October, at quarter to five a.m. we carried out another armed intervention against the French state, by throwing a hand grenade next to the guard of its embassy in Athens, opposite the Greek parliament. These two aggressive actions of our organization, together with our first armed intervention on the 25th of May 2014 against PASOK, defy in deed the armed domination of the Greek state and at the same time they express the vision of social revolution and of the dissolution of authoritative institutions here and now.

In order to construct a revolutionary movement on sturdy foundations, we must study the defeats of the past. We must focus on the contradictions of past movements and analyze the dynamics of class antagonism today, as a result of a historical evolution. The totalitarian capitalist aggression, which began two and a half decades ago and spreads around the globe, is connected to the fundamental crisis of the socialist movement.

The main contradiction which brought about the demise of the revolutionary wave of the 20th century is statism. Parliamentary democracy, dictatorship of political parties and, at the same time, the repression of workers’ self organization implanted bourgeois authority in the loins of social revolutions, ever since the French revolution. The revolution in Russia was led by a political and technocratic elite. Read the rest of this entry »

Digital Anonymity & Security (PDF)

November 14th, 2017

As activists we must know the dangers of the cyberspace, and learn how to protect our privacy. Avoiding the use of telecommunication tools is not an option. But either we own the technology we use or the technology owns us.

Here are some basic concepts and tips from yesterday’s workshop. We publish this info and ask you to help spread it because information wants to be free.
