February 25th, 2015

EN: Propaganda action outside the Southern District Attorney’s Office in response to the imprisonment of compañero Diego Ríos

En los días posteriores a que se decretara una prisión preventiva de 30
días contra el compañero Diego Ríos, hemos arrojado volantes en las
afueras de la Fiscalía Sur, marcando en la calle nuestra presencia
antiautoritaria con una declaración de guerra:

CALOR SOLIDARIO A LXS AMIGXS DE LA LIBERTAD
FUEGO REBELDE A LOS DEFENSORES DEL PODER

Como ente persecutor de quienes llevan a lxs hechos el antagonismo con

Bonus Track: Artefacto simulado en SubCentro y Escuela Militar ($hile)

February 25th, 2015

[Noticias de la Guerra Social]

Durante la mañana del 16 de Diciembre del 2014, un aparente artefacto
explosivo es encontrado entre el Subcentro y la Escuela Militar,
generando un amplio dispositivo policial y mediático.

Hace un par de meses atrás, más precisamente en Septiembre, un artefacto
explosivo detona en un basurero del Subcentro en pleno horario de
almuerzo hiriendo a varios transeúntes. La acción es reivindicada por
“Conspiración de Células del Fuego –Chi” quienes señalan haber dado un
tiempo de 10 minutos para evacuar el sector, alerta que no fue creída
por la policía e insuficiente para despejar dicha área altamente
transitada. Read the rest of this entry »

Solidarity with anarchist Dante Cano, arrested at Oakland demo against police violence and murders (USA)

February 25th, 2015

Spread around. Lumpen-proletarian rebel arrested recently in Oakland, CA USA at anti-police demonstration. Squatter and anarchist. Facing serious charges. Help get word out.

Dante Cano is currently being held in Santa Rita jail for participation in a demonstration against police brutality and murder in the Bay Area and across the United States. At the time of his arrest, police in near-by Emervyville had just killed Yuvette Henderson in early February. At the same time, police also had just shot people in San Jose, East Oakland, and also the courts had exonerated the police that shot and killed Alex Nieto in San Francisco. This happened against a back-drop of ongoing police murder and violence across the US as well as a deep and furious revolt in the Bay Area against this murder and repression.

The new issue of Fire to the Prisons is now completed and available online. Check out the new issue, print your own copies, and view past PDFs at our new website: www.firetotheprisons.org

Fire to the Prisons is an insurrectionary periodical. It focuses on promoting a revolutionary solidarity between different struggles, prisoners, and existing social tensions that challenge capitalism and the state.

We made 10,000 copies of this issue because we wanted to get them as far and wide as possible. In order to create a publication for free to comrades and the general discontented public, we have forfeited our traditional magazine form and went with a less costly newspaper.

Audio: Activist Dilar Dirik profiles the Kurdish struggle for self rule – against ISIS, European political cynicism, and the Western left’s expectations (Kurdistan)

February 24th, 2015

Here we share an audio link sent to us with an interview with Dilar Dirik. Even though we do not share many of the liberal-democratic language and perspectives of the interviewer and interviewee, we are happy to put aside dogma for a moment because freedom and understanding means destroying the cages we build for ourselves as much as those that are built for us, as we seek out new worlds and affinities.

Rojava vs The World: The radical fight for survival, independence & freedom

Activist Dilar Dirik profiles the Kurdish struggle for self rule – against ISIS, European political cynicism, and the Western left’s expectations.

Dilar traveled to Rojava with an international academic delegation, and she has written about the politics of Kurdistan in “The ‘other’ Kurds fighting the Islamic State” for Al-Jazeera and “Be on the right side of history – with the brave people of Kobanê” for the Kurdistan Tribune.

Dilar Dirik is Kurdish activist and refugee, and a PhD student at the University of Cambridge. She blogs at Jin, jiyan, azadî.

Incendiary barrage in solidarity with fugitive comrade Ageliki and the imprisoned members of CCF by ‘Constant Unholy Synod / Iconoclastic Cell Clément Duval / FAI-IRF’ (Greece)

February 24th, 2015



Inter Arma received and translated:


ONE STEP BEFORE…

In the modern age where everything moves continuously with terrible speed, not even the most shrewd ones manage to realize adequately and securely enough to estimate in time the consequences of the stated decisions of others upon their lives!

In modern Fortress Europe, where immigrants/refugees from the “third world” countries are shot in cold blood at the borders, flounder on the Aegean sea or become “sacks of potatoes” and “punching bags” inside police departments and detention centers. There where the global conflict of interests, between the two most powerful –but interdependent- poles of power and also the ambivalent smaller circles of influence that interlock with each other, goes on with unabated intensity, muffled but also unconcealed (as in Ukraine); Greece and other neighboring countries (inside and outside the EU) remain fully heterogeneous and controlled – colonial type-provinces of the capitalist center, where even breathing is taxed!

In modern civilization, with the toxic wastes that extensively pollute the earth and the aquifer, air pollution that contributes highly to the reduction of life expectancy, the techno-industrial noises of every kind leading to paranoia and the luminous advertising signs that cover the starlight, even the car’s petrol tank light exists to remind us of the misery we experience!

In the modern city and everywhere else where there are the catastrophic tentacles of industry and the lies of social hierarchy (eg. always talking about the artificial environment, the officials and lackeys of institutional authority etc.), there is nothing more beautiful than the screwed up faces and the broken bones, the debris and embers of the means and infrastructure of the Enemy!

Liberation immediate de Georges Ibrahim Abdallah – Textes de Dimitris Koufontinas et Nikos Maziotis (France, Greece)

February 24th, 2015

- G.I. Abdallah : Nouveau refus de libération

LIBÉRATION IMMÉDIATE DE GEORGES IBRAHIM ABDALLAH
RASSEMBLEMENT DE PROTESTATION
MERCREDI 25 FÉVRIER 2015
DEVANT L’AMBASSADE FRANÇAISE D’ ATHENES

(Coin des rues Vas. Sofias et Akadimias)

Le communiste révolutionnaire Georges Ibrahim Abdallah est dans son 31er année d’enfermement dans les prisons françaises. Toutes les demandes de libération conditionnelle qu’il a faites jusqu’ici ont été rejetées par les tribunaux sous des prétextes divers, après des interventions continues du State Department américain et du lobby sioniste aux gouvernements français. L’Etat français, en rôle de protectorat, met en œuvre un système d’exclusion contre un militant qui est libérable depuis 1999.

Le 5 Novembre 2014, le tribunal d’ application des peines de Paris a rejeté la neuvième demande de libération que Georges Ibrahim Abdallah avait soumis en Mars 2014.

La demande d’Abdallah était considérée «irrecevable» sous le prétexte que précédemment il n’a pas fait l’objet d’un arrêté d’expulsion. Cette parodie de justice, confirme encore une fois le régime d’exception applicable à Georges Abdallah pour plus de 31 ans. Il est confirmé que le maintien en détention de Georges Abdallah est une décision politique du gouvernement français. Read the rest of this entry »

Communiqué from the anarchist comrades locked up in the AS2 unit of the prison of Ferrara (Italy)

February 23rd, 2015

From anarchicipistoiesi.noblogs.org, crocenera.org, informa-azione.info
Translated by act for freedom now

After the news that circulated between 13th and 17th February, here is a communiqué signed by the prisoners of the AS2 unit of the prison of Ferrara. The prisoners decided not to be silent in the face of yet more abuse from the guards and to protest against the solitary confinement inflicted on a comrade in the unit. We believe it is necessary not to allow their words to remain dead letter; on the contrary it is important that they circulate as much as possible, among comrades outside as well as inside prison.

To the comrades outside, 14th February 2015

A few words to let you know what’s going on in the AS2 unit of the prison of Ferrara.
No will/intention to feed the ferocious appetite of victimization’s cultists or anti-prison experts in view of the latest prisoners’ lament.

On Friday Alfredo [Cospito] was subjected to the judgement of the prison little tribunal, following a report issued a few nights earlier for having insulted a guard who had turned to one of us, Graziano [Mazzarelli], in a disrespectful and provocative fashion. Graziano was guilty of asking the disgusting man to turn the volume down. For the record, all this happened after midnight. Besides causing him lose the 45 days of earlier release, the ‘sentence’ implied that Alfredo was immediately put in solitary confinement, or rather, as they say, excluded from all social activities (exercise yard, sociality, gym and football pitch). As soon as news spread in the unit, after a short discussion, we started making noise and banging at the bars. Read the rest of this entry »

Sydney: Protect The Block! Redfern Aboriginal Tent Embassy Facing Eviction – 23 Feb! (Au$tralia)

February 22nd, 2015

The Redfern Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Sydney is facing eviction on Monday 23rd February. The Embassy are calling for people to come down and help them resist eviction.

The embassy plans to apply for an injunction Monday against the eviction order, which was issued by the Aboriginal Housing Corporation (AHC) on Friday afternoon. The order demands the total dismantling of Redfern Aboriginal Tent Embassy, which has been a 24 hour protest camp since May 2014. In an area known as the ‘Block’, it sits wedged between Redfern Station and Eveleigh Street. It’s a sparse green oval resting on a grey concrete slope. On first glance it’s as unassuming and ordinary as its namesake would suggest. But the tents have only catalysed the political discontent and community activism that has boiled below the suburb’s surface for years.

The site has grown over the months to include vegetable patches and a seed bank, a sacred fire pit, kitchen and a collection of tents. The embassy was established to protest a controversial redevelopment plan for the Block – a chunk of Sydney’s Redfern suburb where Indigenous Australians have been promised affordable housing since the 1970s. When the AHC first began to be handed parts of what would later become the Block in the 1970s, it was widely viewed as a major victory in the battle for Indigenous land rights. The entire area was earmarked for affordable housing for Indigenous Australians. Read the rest of this entry »

War against ISIS/Daesh: Injured Dutch YPG fighter treated in Germany – “My heart is in Kobanê” (Kurdistan)

February 22nd, 2015

Friday, February 20, 2015 at 2:30 PM
Aachen – Anf/ ali güler

YPG fighter Richard Jansen from Holland who has been brought back to Europe for treatment for an injury he sustained in clashes in Sinjar said that: “I am happy to be a part of the honorable struggle waged by the Kurds. I was injured very early and I am sorry that my fight remained unfinished.”

Richard Jansen from the town of Schiadam in Amsterdam joined the ranks of the YPG (People’s Defense Units) some four and a half months ago in support of the Kurdish struggle against ISIS gangs.

Jansen who took the name of Serdar Botan was wounded on the head after a mortar shell fired by ISIS fell on a YPG emplacement in Sinjar one and a half month ago. He has been taken to the German city of Dusseldorf for treatment in a plane that took off from South Kurdistan earlier today. Read the rest of this entry »

Eco-anarchists Billy, Silvia and Costa are on trial again 23 April 2015 (Italy)

February 22nd, 2015

From informa-azione.info
Translated by act for freedom now

THE TRIAL OF BILLY SILVIA AND COSTA IS APPROACHING:
LET’S RELAUNCH THE STRUGGLE AGAINST TOXICITY

Five years have passed since we were arrested in Switzerland when police at a checkpoint on the Albis pass, Canton of Zurich, found explosives, propane gas canisters, petrol cans and several copies of a claim by Switzerland Earth Liberation Front in the car we were in. The target of the proposed attack was the Binning and Rohrer Nanotechnology Centre, a structure that was under construction at the time, property of IBM in collaboration with ETH, the Federal Polytechnic of Zurich.

The trial took place a year and a half later where we were accused of: preparing deliberate arson; concealing and transporting explosive material; unauthorized trade (importation) of explosives. Federal prosecutor Hansjörg Stadler demanded sentences of 3 years and 4 to 8 months, broadly accepted by federal judge Walter Wütrich. The court confirmed all the charges, except that of illicit traffic (importation) of explosives, a charge we were cleared of.

Parallel to this, the Public Prosecutor of Turin had begun a thorough investigation of the explosive cartridges that the Swiss authorities had found on us to find out where the material had come from. When the investigation was completed, prosecutor Enrico Arnaldi Di Balme issued three more charges against us: terrorist activity involving lethal and explosive devices, possession and transport of explosives in the public space and receiving stolen goods (explosives), all charges aggravated with ‘terrorist intent’.

Mytilene: Intervention in solidarity with the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (Greece)

February 22nd, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

Last week (8-14 / 2) we made a propaganda campaign in the town of Mytilene, in solidarity with the imprisoned comrades of the anarchist revolutionary organization the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. We painted slogans and put up posters in the main streets, on bank branches, supermarkets, phone stands, bus stops, crowded buildings and the city courts. Although the photos would be enough to convey our anger and passion, we write these lines as we want to also tell that during our intervention in the campus of the University of the Aegean, knowing that there are no environmental sensitivities in the faction of New Democracy at the School of Environment, we stole the whole year’s election material (huge colored posters) of DAP and sent them for recycling, so that they won’t think that it was lost and, secondly, for them to know that we do not abstain from the university campus and the student elections, but from the educational process and the collective stupidity… We wish you luck with the election results morons!

Notes: New Democracy is the biggest right-wing political party in Greece and DAP is its student faction.

Police launched a manhunt to find the suspects and set up road blocks in the wider area but at time of writing had failed to find anything other than empty shells, witness statements and a corpse.

HMP Oakwood: Prisoners repressed for uprising at G4S private prison (UK)

February 21st, 2015

HMP Oakwood is a very well-known large shit-hole of a prison run by G4S private security company, known for very poor conditions and overcrowding.

From inthebellyofthebeast, via mainstream media slime:

Six criminals have been jailed over a riot which caused £170,000-worth of damage at Britain’s biggest jail.

The crooks smashed up their wing at the privately-run HMP Oakwood, near Wolverhampton, in January last year.

Staff were forced to flee as they trashed TVs, furnishings, pool tables and washing machines. Read the rest of this entry »

February 21st, 2015



From rabbleLDN:

The main article below is reposted from inthebellyofthebeast. Also see fightfortheaylesbury website for further reports and updates. As of today (21 Feb), the occupation of the new block (69-76 Chartridge) continues, and this afternoon the squatters are holding a “fun day” with food and football.

17th Feburary 2015

On Tuesday night Southwark council workers along with 100 cops attacked squatters on the abandoned Aylesbury housing estate (one of the largest in Europe), in a ‘para-military’ operation.

The cops & council workers were prevented from entering the squatted building earlier in the evening by a burning barricade of mattresses and steel sheets. An army of TSG (Tactical Support Group, riot police unit) then descended upon the other steel plated entrance with angle grinders, as sparks started to fly a ferocious resistance ensued, the squatters preventing the cops from entering for two whole hours, as they pelted the cops with any object to hand and broke their angle grinder several times.

War against ISIS/Daesh: Statements from MLKP in Kobane (Kurdistan)

February 21st, 2015

International revolutionaries of the Marxist-Leninist Party of Turkey arrived in Rojava and they said the following things about their motivation to participate in the revolution:

Martos:

“The Rojava Revolution is a war against fascist forces, the IS gangs. This is the reason why we are here. This revolution is also an example for the revolutions all over the world. We’re here to spread the revolution.”

Thälmann Demircioğlu:

“The imperialists claim that there are neither revolution nor class struggle in the 21th century. But here in Rojava there is an actual revolution. For this reason all communists and internationalists should come here to defend the revolution with weapons in their hands. The experiences gathered here have to be carried back to the countries to start the revolution their as well.” Read the rest of this entry »

Living Up To The Name, Guerrero (Mexico)

February 21st, 2015

Here is an overview that we were sent reporting on some recent events in Guerrero, written by a Mexican anarchist living in the U$A

Guerrero, considered to be one of the most violent states in Mexico, seems to be in a never ending state of chaos. Murders in the beach resort town of Acapulco, the capital city Chilpancingo, multiple clandestine grave sites and of course, the Iguala massacre. Estado Fallido, failed state, is constantly used to describe Mexico, but especially Guerrero. No doubts there, police involvement in many heinous crimes, politicians and political parties working hand in hand with organized crime. A failed state, but what is a functioning state?
