Kuala Lumpur: Police raid anarchist space Rumah Api (Malaysia)

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

On 28th August (Friday), over a dozen police with automatic weapons and K-9 unit attacked Rumah Api (social center/house project in Kuala Lumpur) during a concert on that night. The police raided the house project and raid everybody during the concert and also trashed the living space of people who live there without any warrant or solid reason for the raid.

We all believe the raid were conducted due to the connection of Bersih 4 Rally which happen on the next days (29 and 30th) which is totally insane since the organizer of the concert, participants, and Rumah Api have little interest to join or even support the rally, due to our political stance on the issue of election and voting system.

The state use Rumah Api as the scapegoat of recent event of attack on banks and multinational corporations in KL for the past 2 years. So far, they found nothing to link us with that events. The police seize all the musical equipment at the concert hall, seize 2 computers of people who live there, one smart phone, artwork, and books belonging to people who live there. The police said they search the building for any weapons or explosives that can link us to terrorism. (more…)

State and Media Intoxication in the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners (Spain)

Friday, August 28th, 2015

The Spanish Interior Minister of State fears an anarchist attack against prison officials this week.

From contramadriz via freeonline; in the context of the official report, the anarchist comrades F.Solar and M.Caballero were also referenced.

Spain: A digital media site of disinformation has “uncovered” a Prisons Circular recently distributed to its workers demanding extreme measures to protect themselves against possible suspicious packages received between 23 and August 30th. The reason for this is the “discovery” by the Information Service of the paramilitary Civil Guard of the international call for solidarity with anarchist prisoners from 23 to 30 August.

According to these coppers, the poster ismuch more aggressive than the last year’s In fact, you can read the legend “fire to the prisons and jailers”, which leads them to conclude that the “main objective of the anarchist movement” at the moment are Prison Officers “or any persons related to the facilities of the General Secretariat of Penitentiary Institutions”. All because someone added “and the Jailors” to the traditional “Fire to The Prisons” slogan. (more…)

On recent repression in Copenhagen (Denmark)

Sunday, August 16th, 2015

At 5.30 am Thursday August 13, the anti-authoritarian collective Bumzen was raided by a gang of masked cops from the police anti-criminal gang unit. They were followed by an army of armoured cops, who handcuffed everyone present in the building at the time. The pretext given was that they were looking for participants in a riotous Reclaim the Streets demo the previous weekend. However, it is clear to us that this was a politically motivated operation against the infrastructure of the radical movement.

Although about 25 people were present during the raid, none were allowed to supervise the police while they were searching through their rooms and property. The police picked out the individuals, who had their official address at Bumzen to bring them to the cop shop to and charge them under paragraph 134a, participation in a riot.

Three other locations were raided the same morning. Two 17-year olds were arrested and remanded, accused of smashing windows at a bank in Østerbro, despite their status as minors and vandalism being a fairly petty charge.

On Saturday August 15 a demonstration took place from Blågårds Plads to Bumzen, where there was people’s kitchen. All proceeds collected are being donated to to the prisoners.

Report from ABC Denver: Repression in Denver (USA)

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

Over the last year there has been a strong resistance to police murder
and terror across the city of Denver. This is only the most recent surge
in resistance to police terror in our city, going back to the loss of
Paul Childs in 2003 or more recently Marvin Booker in 2010.

Denver Police have been systematically targeting and arresting those
actively involved in this organizing. Denver Community Defense
Committee, a group which has organized extensive support for families of
people murdered by police, has five of its seven members under
prosecution or known to be under investigation by the Gang Unit of DPD.
Prominent independent journalists, those with an expansive reach through
social media, have been targeted and arrested while filming the police
in Denver.

Antifenix – Financial help needed (Czech Republic)

Monday, July 20th, 2015

Hello everybody,

Since we are still under the pressure of repression, there are quite big expenses in theFenix case and we are somehow unable to pay all these things (lawyers, support of the family of one imprisoned guy, food for prisoners, packages for the prisoners, etc.)

We would like to ask for any financial help possible. First we though that we will be able to do it ourselves and also we were already supported from some groups from other countries, but now it seems to be harder then we expected.

If you would like to donate/do a benefit event, please let us know.
Every amount of money is valuable for us..

Info in English is here on the website http://antifenix.noblogs.org

Thanks to everybody!

War against ISIS/Daesh: Massacre in Suruç as terror spreads across the border – over 50 dead and at least 100 injured in Islamist bombing – Call for international solidarity from MLKP (Turkey)

Monday, July 20th, 2015

20 July 2015 – A female suicide bomber with allegiances to Daesh/Islamic State is believed to be responsible for causing a blast in Suruç district of Urfa, which targeted around 300 members of Socialist Youth Associations Federation (SGDF) before their journey into Kobanê for reconstruction activities.

Over 50 young people were killed and over a 100 more were wounded, according to initial reports. The blast occurred in the garden of Amara Cultural Center, where the young people had been staying since their arrival in the district yesterday. The youths gathered in the garden to release a statement to the press before crossing into Kobanê. At the press gathering, a group of young people are chanting slogans while holding the federation’s flags and a large banner with the words: “We defended it together, we are building it together.” In the video recording of the meeting, an explosion rips through the young comrades instantly turning the scene into carnage. The garden of the culture center became a blood bath after the blast as the bodies of the youths were scattered around in pieces.

Suruc is a small Kurdish-majority city just a 15-minute drive from the border with Kobane. Suruc houses many refugees who have fled the fighting in Kobane. Kurdish activists in Suruc played a vital role during the siege of Kobane, sending food and medicine to the YPG Kurdish fighters to bolster their supplies. Many journalists and foreign fighters who wanted to go to Kobane went to Suruc and from there were sent on. There was panic in Suruc after the attack, with shopkeepers closing up for fear of a second attack. Suruc residents had feared that they could be the next target of Daesh ever since the attack on the pro-Kurdish party HDP election rally in Diyarbakir which took place on 5 June.

Massacre in Suruc! Call for International Solidarity

Dear Comrades,

This morning there was a massacre in the northern Kurdish city of Suruc against the participants of a delegation of the Federation of the Socialist Youth clubs (SGDF). Many young people were killed and injured in the bombing. The 300 young people were en-route to Kobanê for a week to rebuild the city to help out.

We call upon you to organise international solidarity actions between the 21-22nd July to protest against the massacre and the bloody policy of the AKP dictatorship [Turkish ruling party] and the fascist gangs of ISIS.

With revolutionary greetings

Betreff: Massaker in Suruc! Aufruf für Internationale Solidarität

Liebe Genossen,

Heute morgen wurde in der nordkurdischen Stadt Suruc ein Massaker an den Teilnehmern einer Delegation der Föderation der Sozialistischen Jugendvereine (SGDF) verübt. Durch einen Bombenanschlag wurden viele
Jugendliche getötet und verletzt. Die rund 300 Jugendlichen waren auf dem Weg nach Kobanê, um dort eine Woche lang beim Wiederaufbau der Stadt zu helfen.

Wir rufen euch auf international Solidaritätsaktionen zwischen dem 21.-22. Juli zu organisieren, um gegen das Massaker und die blutige Politik der AKP-Diktatur und der faschistischen ISIS Banden zu protestieren.

A Voice of Middle Eastern Anarchists – The deadly ideology of Islam (Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, …)

Sunday, July 19th, 2015

We do NOT see anything on any Western Anarchists site, Facebook, etc,
regarding all crimes happening in Iran by the brutal Islamic regime or in
Afghanistan by its puppet regime or many other Middle Eastern countries. But
when a woman in burqa will be attacked we see straightaway there is
rallies, actions etc, in their support under the name of being against
Islamophobia. But if any of “our comrades in Western countries will be
attacked”
or racist treated by fascist racist group, there is NOT a single
action to support our people. We are from Muslim background and we, of
course, respect Muslims. But we as anarchists we are strongly against all
religions, states, class society, fascism, borders, etc.

And we believe we should NOT stay silent on the brutality of Islam under the false reason that it could be against Muslim residents in Western countries!! We believe at the same time that we must be against all kinds of fascism / racism, but at the same time we also must reveal the deadly ideology of fascism in Islam that is hiding behind the burqa or anything else. We believe the burqa is NOT just a piece of clothing or dress, BUT it is “an ideology”, a deadly ideology of Islam who believes you must kill whoever is Not Muslim. You are allowed to marry your innocent child daughter to whomever you want even at the age of 6 or 9.
“A brutal sexual rape of little girls”. You must be stoned to death as a
woman, if you chose to have any sexual relationship with a man or a woman you
love. Your finger, arms, legs will be cut off, if as a poor you steal a piece of
bread. And many more ….

AND WE GUESS THIS IS OUR DIFFERENCE WITH WESTERN ANARCHISTS !!

Thursday, July 16th, 2015

PDF: Hungerstrike flyer for Steve

TO THE PRESS AND PUBLIC
In the prison for foreigners in Maltepe, the law has been abrogated.

British citizen, Stephan Shah Kaczynski is kept in Maltepe L Type Prison
No.3, which is well-known as a prison for foreigners for already 4
months now. To demand the end to the unlawful actions of the prison
authorities against him, he continues a hungerstrike for 12 days (note:
today 15.07.2015 the hunger strike already reached 21 days).

The prison authorities of the Maltepe L Type Prison No. 3 not only
ignore the demands of Shah Kaczynski, they continue to violate the law
with its actions.

During his 4 months in prison, the prison administration didn’t hand out
any newspapers, books and magazines to Shah Kaczynski. As Shah Kaczynski
made several requests and talked to the prison authorities without any
result, he went on a hunger strike. (more…)

Fuck Islam! – Fuck Ramadan! : Thousands arrested and sentenced to flogging for not obeying religion (Iran)

Saturday, July 11th, 2015

Dear Friends, during the bloody month of “ramadan”, the rich will explode of eating from the sunset till sunrise and the situation of innocent brainwashed poor by religion, become worse and worse. Many of them become more ill and suffering goes to sky high level.
دوستان عزیز, برای دیدن توضیح فارسی لطفا همیشه روی “سی‌ مور و یا کا نتینو ریدینگ” کلیک کنید!
Above photo is showing you the true situation of bloody rich and innocent poor during this horrified month.

Islam has nothing to defend and we’re opposite to the fake leftists, who stay silent on brutality of islam, under the name of defending muslims or being against islamophobia, etc., we Middle Eastern Anarchists say it loudly and without fear:

Fuck islam (religion), fuck capitalism and barbarism !!

Free Middle East, Free The World

دوستان, عزیزان, نازنینان, همانگونه که می دانیم, هر ساله در ماه کشنده ی رمضان میلیون ها انسان بی گناه که در فقر و تنگ دستی زندگی می کنند شرایط زندگی شان به مراتب اسفناک تر می شود

انسان های تهی دستی که در اثر فقر مالی کوچک ترین امکاناتی برای آموزش ندارند, به راحتی طعمه کاسبان فاشیست دینی و سرمایه قرار می گیرند. بر ماست که به هر طریقی که ممکن است, چه در کوچه و خیابان و کار با بی خانمان ها و چه در هر مکان دیگری, مردم تهی دست را آگاه سازیم. تا به جای افتادن در دام این دین مداران پلید و صاحبان سرمایه و ثروت, برعلیه آنان به پا خیزند و دارایی خویش را از آنان باز پس بگیرند, و آنها را به زباله دانی تاریخ بسپارند.

The barbaric punishment of flogging by islamic regime in Iran.
480 sentenced to lashing in Iran for drinking water or eating at day time during Ramadan.
دوستان عزیز, برای دیدن توضیح فارسی لطفا همیشه روی “سی‌ مور و یا کا نتینو ریدینگ” کلیک کنید!
At least 500 people have been arrested and sentenced to flogging in Shiraz, Iran, for failing not to follow the fasting time during bloody month of Ramadan.

Since Ramadan began on June 18, at least 500 people have been arrested and punished brutally. A punishment that their life will end up into the wheelchair as a result of damages to the body. This is the report of one city only. (In Shiraz).

Anyone in Iran caught eating or drinking in public during daytime in Ramadan will receive 74 lashes in addition to a jail term …

Last year, a Christian man in Iran had his lips burnt with a cigarette for eating during the day in Ramadan. The savage punishment was carried out in public in the city of Kermanshah.

The number of floggings across Iran is much higher than officially announced.

NO GOD, NO MASTER, NO FASCISM, NO BORDERS !!

از شروع ماه نحس رمضان تا کنون تنها در یک شهر ایران (شیراز) بیش از ۵۰۰ نفر دستگیر و محکوم به ۷۴ ضربه شلاق و یا زندان شده اند.

قابل توجه است که صدمات ضربه شلاق به قدری شدید است که در اکثر موارد شخص بی گناه در اثر آسیب دیدگی استخوان و مهره های بدن , دیگر تا آخر عمرمعیوب مانده و زندگیش بر روی صندلی چرخدار ( معلولین ) به پایان خواهد رسید.

لازم به ذکر است که تعداد محکومین خیلی خیلی بالاتر از عدد فوق می باشد.

War against ISIS/Daesh: Open letter from the MLKP-Turkey in solidarity with the arrested combatants of the International Brigade (Spain)

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

Dear comrades,

We send you our warmest revolutionary greetings in solidarity with the two comrades who are arrested by the Spanish state for being fighters for humanity.

This attack against the two comrades who went to Rojava to fight there against the fascist Daesh gangs, is not only an attack against them and your party, its an attack against the international revolutionary movement and against all people who fight against fascism and imperialism. In this moment they attack two of yours but they mean to attack all of us. In this situation the international solidarity is our biggest weapon.

The comrades fought in a legitimate and rightful struggle in Rojava and the people of Rojava will never forget what they did there! We are strongly condemn this repression of the Spanish bourgeois state. Resistance and the fight for humanity, freedom and democracy is not terrorism!

Long live international solidarity!

Long live the international freedom battalion!

Long live the legitimate and rightful fight in Rojava!

Long live PML (RC)!

With revolutionary greetings,

War against ISIS/Daesh: Two arrests as members of the International Brigade have their homes raided in Madrid (Spain)

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

URGENT: 2 SPANISH MEMBERS OF INTERNATIONAL BRIGADE ARRESTED

During this morning, the repressive forces of the Spanish State are carrying out the arrest of the comrades who have been fighting the fascist forces of DAESH (Islamic State) in Rojava. Due to the lack of further information, we ask you for support, solidarity and spreading the message.

The homes of the comrades were searched by investigators of the Provincial Brigade Intelligence Office of the Madrid police. These comrades are two militants of the Partido Marxista-Leninista (Reconstrucción Comunista) that are accused by the police of appearing in the video above. Police said that the two activists came into Syria via Turkey and Germany. They are accused of participating in an armed conflict outside Spain without the permission of the State, of collaborating with a terrorist organization (this is probably the PKK – Kurdish People’s Party being described here), use of military weapons and explosive devices, and of seriously undermining Spanish national interests. Reconstrucción Comunista is an organization composed of members of the Communist Youth who have broken with the Partido Comunista de España, PCE. Its founding members initially were active in this organisation before founding their own organization, close to the MLKP (Marksist-Leninist Komünist Partisi – Turkey) in 2009.

WE WANT THE SPANISH MEMBERS OF THE INTERNATIONAL BRIGADE WHO HAVE FOUGHT ISIS TO BE RELEASED WITHOUT CHARGES!

DEFENDING THE CIVIL POPULATION FROM ISIS TERRORIST ATTACKS CAN’T BE PERSECUTED!

FREEDOM FOR THE ANTIFASCIST COMBATANTS!

INTERNATIONALIST SOLIDARITY IS NOT A CRIME!

Info from Marxist-Leninist Party (Reconstrucción Comunista), 6th July 2015, via RHI-SRI – Secours Rouge.

Solidarity with Paco and Martos!

Mexico City: Police harassment of members of Anarchist Black Cross Mexico

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

In the last few years, we have seen how the escalation of repression has intensified around the libertarian and anarchist movement through the strategies used here in Mexico City: Setting very high bond amounts, and applying the same package of charges, always aggravated, without giving much importance to the specific situation, but rather to what the State dictates.

Persecution and finger-pointing in the media as a basic element of their set-up: Noting the names of groups of people or spaces (whether they exist or not), making up relationships that really don’t exist, comparing everyone and everything from a vertical point of view, trying fit us into a schematic of leadership. Of course, this demonstrates a deep ignorance and/or contempt for anarchist ideas, which have nothing to do with this kind of hierarchical logic.
