Europe and beyond: the resistance against mega-projects (A-Radio Berlin)

July 15th, 2014

Dear all,

We would like to present an interview the Anarchist Radio Berlin (aradio.blogsport.de) made with Bogdan, an activist from Rumania. The main topic is the recent 4th Forum against unnecessary imposed mega-projects, a network of major struggles against infrastructure, mining and fracking projects (in Europe and beyond). The last meeting took place in May in Rosia Montana, Rumania. The preparation, the subject of the involvement of political parties in such movements as well as the future perspective of this particular coordination are at the heart of the interview, but it also gives a quick overview of the development of the local struggle against the proposed biggest open-cast gold mining project in Europe.

You’ll find the audio (to listen online or download in different sizes) here:
http://aradio.blogsport.de/2014/07/15/a-radio-auf-englisch-europe-and-beyond-the-resistance-against-mega-projects/
The length is: 21:30 min.

Enjoy! And please feel free to share!

Porto Alegre: Faixa em repudio ao genocídio contra xs palestinxs (Brazil)

July 15th, 2014

Saímos das nossas casas para interromper um pouco com a indiferença normalizadora neste clima nojento de final da copa do mundo. Colocamos uma faixa na Avenida Borges de Medeiros, na mesma hora em que os torcedores caminharem para o ultimo festejo. Um festejo, o lembramos, banhado no sangue dxs assessinadxs, desaparecidxs e torturadxs “da copa”.

Enquanto xs cúmplices dessa desgraça caminham “felizes” pelas ruas, lembramos esses dias como dias de genocídio do “povo” palestino. Read the rest of this entry »

Important clarification about the case of Jock Palfreeman (Bulgaria)

July 14th, 2014

We add a clarification about the case of Jock Palfreeman. The imprisoned comrade has not taken responsibility for the armed wounding /death of the fascists that attacked him and the Roma he was with during the ‘index offence’ for which he is imprisoned. We issue this transmission to clear any possible errors contained in the transmission of the following article, and to take our share of responsibility for this error:

http://325.nostate.net/?p=10800
*Jock in self-defense seriously injured two of his attackers, one fatally.*

http://interarma.info/en/2014/07/11/boulgaria-enhmervsh-gia-jock-palfreeman
*During the fight Jock injured one of the fascists and killed another one.*

According to his own statements, Jock Palfreeman took out a knife in self-defense against his aggressors, but he has never admitted stabbing anyone. … Some people who support him usually write descriptions like “Andrey Monov was stabbed and killed and Antoan Zahariev was injured,” or “two of his attackers were injured of whom one died later from his injuries” – not indicating who the stabber was…

Quelques réflexions sur la révolution Ukrainienne

July 14th, 2014

[Voici une lettre d’un ami anarchiste (il se trouve à Kiev). C’est supposé être une réponse à l’article que Crimethinc a publié en mars à propos de la révolution ukrainienne et à tous ceux qui proclament avidement que la révolution ukrainienne n’est qu’une affaire d’extrême droite. Note de 325.nostate.net]

Compagnons !

Je vous écris depuis l’Ukraine. J’ai beaucoup participé aux émeutes de Maidan et à différentes initiatives anarchistes pendant cette période. Je voudrais faire plusieurs remarques que je trouve importantes pour mieux pouvoir apprécier les événements. En général, je suis d’accord avec votre hypothèse, mais je veux souligner quelques détails qui montreront que la situation est moins noire. Read the rest of this entry »

Smash Pacifism – A Critical Analysis of Gandhi and King by Zig-Zag (Warrior Publications)

July 14th, 2014

Smash Pacifism zine – Warrior Publications

While the title of this writing is Smash Pacifism, it is not intended as a call to violence against pacifists. Rather, it symbolizes the need to resolutely challenge the doctrine of pacifism that is so routinely imposed on social movements and to break the monopoly on forms of struggle which reformist organizations presently hold. In this way, it is intended as a resource to be used in our organizing efforts alongside people who have accepted pacifist doctrine largely out of ignorance.

From Zig-Zag of Warrior Publications, the respected and militant First Nations comrade in struggle. An in-depth analysis of the pacifism of Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi, arguing that history shows that the positive legacy of these struggles were actually the result of a diversity of tactics, including armed resistance, revolts and riots.

The zine also includes interesting material about Bhagat Singh, Sikh militant and anarchist-communist who fought and died against the British regime in India as part of the anti-colonial struggle.

Promote warrior culture, fighting spirit and resistance movements!

We continue our regular summaries on repressions of anarchists, antifascists, and social activists in Russia, on obstacles which police state creates for our activity.

In April-May issue: arrests of “terrorists” in Crimea, new detentions regarding “Bolotnoya Case”, letters from political prisoners, police attack of a gig, and other. If you think, we have missed something in our article, or you know about other incidents of repression, please write to abc-msk@riseup.net.

Below you can read instructions on how to transfer funds to ABC-Moscow.

Arrest of Aleksandr Kolchenko in Crimea

Respondiendo al llamado de nuestros compañeros y de nuestra propia conciencia insurrecta, decidimos no estar ausentes en solidaridad durante el día de la lectura de la sentencia contra los compañeros presos por el “Caso Security”.

Letter appeal on behalf of John Bowden, long-term radical social prisoner, about the criminalisation of the Anarchist Black Cross (UK)

July 11th, 2014

via a comrade of Anarchist Black Cross Brighton:

In 2007 my association with the Anarchist Black Cross was considered a compelling enough reason by the prison authorities to prevent my release, despite the subsequent exposure of the lies manufactured by a prison administration regarding the nature and activities of ABC.

In the summer of 2007 following my transfer to an open jail, Castle Huntley near Dundee, after almost three decades of imprisonment, a prison-hired social worker at the jail, Matthew Stillman, submitted a report to the Parole Board in which he claimed I was linked to what he described as a “terrorist group”, specifically naming ABC, and had received visits from “terrorists” also linked to ABC. As a consequence of Stillman’s allegation I was transferred back to a maximum-security prison. Read the rest of this entry »

Update about the second hearing of the trial against Gianluca and Adriano (Italy)

July 10th, 2014

via fenrir:

On the 4th of July in the court of Roma (Italy) the second hearing of the trial against Gianluca and Adriano was held. Even though it was supposed to be with closed doors, a group of comrades managed to enter the courtroom in a moment of distraction of the security guards, in the initial bureaucratic phase of the hearing. They shouted strongly their rage against a proceeding which occurs in the complete absence of the accused. After some minutes they were jostled outside of the courtroom by the Carabineros [military police], while the judge pretended not to even notice what was going on.

We remember that the judge D’Alessandro, accepting the request from the prosecutor, decided that the trial was to be held on videoconference; both Gianluca and Adriano decided not to attend the show-trial, refusing to appear through a screen.

The prosecutor Minisci, already known by the comrades since he’s the same prosecutor in the case for the riots of 15th of October 2011 in Rome, to
reinforce the charges of 270 and 270bis (association for the purposes of terrorism) quoted also some actions that happened outside of Italy, with the aim of inventing some fictional international subversive association. He closed his speech with his request of sentence against the comrades:

- 8 years for Adriano
- 9 years for Gianluca

Next hearing will be on the 18th of July for the speech of Adriano’s defence lawyer and probably for the sentence.

Solidarity with the accused comrades!

Update on the situation of Tamara Sol – harassment and punishment (Chile)

July 10th, 2014

From instintosalvaje, translated by waronsociety:

Note by Instinto Salvaje: Our solidarity with our compañera Tamara Sol Farias Vergara is unrestricted, therefore we cannot be quiet about the situation that is happening with our compañera and her family. We only wish to express our irreducible love for our sisters and brothers in prison and for their families and close circle. And to our enemies we want to make clear our hatred with a few words and in each action that each individual and compañerx deems fitting.

To our friends, compañeros and compañeras:

We are the family of Tamara Sol Farías Vergara. As you are already aware, Tamara has been a prisoner in the San Miguel prison since January 22, 2014. In visitation on Monday, June 16, which was a family-only visit, we had serious problems with gendarmería due to the humiliating treatment we were submitted to. The guard who reviewed Tamara’s grandmother, Luisa, who is 75 years old, made her get naked and do squats, reproaching her that she was wearing a lot of clothing. It is worth mentioning that the place where the prisoners receive their families is a gymnasium with a roof but open on both sides, where the wind and rain come in, getting the entire floor wet and creating an extremely cold and damp atmosphere. Then this same official shouted at another inmate’s visitor because her months-old baby was soiled during the review, shouting at her that this could not be, that she had to change her before coming in! This mother arrived in tears to the gymnasium designated for visitation. Read the rest of this entry »

Update concerning the second session of the trial about the case of “Phoenix” Project (Greece)

July 10th, 2014

via interarma:

Today, Wednesday 2nd of July, there was the second session of the trial about the “Phoenix” Project. The 12 defendants (Andreas Tsavdaridis, Spyros Mandylas and the 10 imprisoned members of CCF) were not presented in court because they are recovering from the 8-day hunger strike in which they participated against the bill for the maximum security prisons. They also asked not to be represented by any lawyer. We remind that the trial began on June the 4th and it concerns three acts of the “Phoenix” Project (Acts 1, 2, 4). The trial was postponed to Wednesday 16th of July.

Update regarding the monstrous bill on maximum security prisons (Greece)

July 10th, 2014

via contrainfo:

After some modifications to the draft bill on maximum security prisons, the recess section of the Greek Parliament is now prepared to vote on this new law on Monday, July 7th. Perhaps it will take another summer session for the final voting, but their plan is to pass the bill no matter what… A protest gathering, supported also by anarchists, against the passage of the ‘prison reform bill’ will take place on Monday 7/7, at 18:00 in Syntagma Square, Athens.

Prisoners throughout Greece have quit their mass hunger strike since the 1st of July, promising other forms of protest on the inside (we don’t have related info as of yet).

One can never know what the fucking minister of Justice, Charalambos Athanasiou, will submit at the last minute, but according to updates so far, main modifications are supposed to be as follows:

- initial incarceration period in Type C prison units for recalcitrant inmates: (from 4 years to) 2 years;

- initial incarceration period in Type C prison units for inmates convicted to over 12 years for terrorism (article 187A of the Greek penal code), and for inmates convicted to over 15 years for criminal organization (article 187 of the Greek penal code): (from 10 years to) 4 years.

It is said that prisoners remanded on terrorism charges (under article 187A), who are still awaiting trial (not yet convicted), will also be sent to Type C prison units.

It is still a fact that inmates locked up in Type C prison units won’t have the right to furlough (days of leave from the prison).

Even if “dangerous” inmates serve 4 full years in a Type C prison, the incarceration period can be extended by prison prosecutors to 2 more years (when these prisoners are not “well-behaved”, or suddenly have further “incriminating indications” presented against them, etc.); when the additional 2 years are over, their incarceration in a Type C prison can be prolonged again to another 2-year period, and so forth…

This is all we can transmit for the time being.

Solidarity with prisoners of the State/Capital. Destroy all prisons!

Update on the case against Mónica and Francisco (Spain)

July 10th, 2014

from refractario via waronsociety:

This Friday, July 4, a ruling was made public which confirmed that Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar will be prosecuted for terrorism. From the judge, the cops, and the press, which are working hand in hand in this case, came the assertion that they “are linked to the FAI/FRI, an international terrorist organization ‘created from insurrectionary anarchist ideology’”.

Clearly the use of these acronyms, despite having nothing to do with the claim of the attack they are accused of, is being used to justify their prosecution as terrorists, as the EU has already identified these acronyms within their list of terrorist organizations. Read the rest of this entry »

Solidarity with Jock Palfreeman and prisoners in Bulgaria – Stop brutality against prisoners

July 10th, 2014

From ABC Brighton:

A few days ago Australian anti-fascist Jock Palfreeman was assaulted in Sofia Central Prison in Bulgaria (he says it was not “too badly”) but yesterday [July 6] the same guard assaulted another prisoner, an elderly man, and some of that man’s compatriots came to his assistance. These seven were then set upon by 40 guards, who brutally beat them.

Jock, in his role of secretary of the Bulgarian Prisoners Association, phoned a number of lawyers to help defend those assaulted. Now Jock has been threatened by the same prison guard has threatened him with another beating. Read the rest of this entry »
