Demo at Turkish capitalists’ Savoy ball (London)

October 28th, 2014

October 28, 2014

From rabbleldn:

About 50 people made a solidarity demo for Kobane at the Savoy Hotel from 6pm on Saturday 25 October. The Turkey Britain Chamber of Commerce and Industry were holding their annual ball, attended by the ambassador and deputy economy minister, and sponsored by global bank HSBC.

The demo was a good mix of London anarchists and antifascists alongside Kurdish youth, and other autonomous groups and individuals. There were no cops there initially, and the demonstrators took over the private road off the Strand that leads into the hotel, blocking all the main entrances with banners and making a lot of noise. Chants included “We are Kobane, Kobane is us”, “Alerta, Alerta, Antifascista”, “No Pasaran”, “Who supports ISIS, Turkey supports ISIS”, etc.

The demo didn’t shut the “ISIS business dinner” down, but gave a bit of a shake-up to the bourgeois ball-goers and seemed like a major embarassment to the Savoy hotel management. More importantly, it was a show of solidarity with the fighters in Rojava, and with the Kurdish and Turkish youth who have been going up against the guns of the Turkish state.

The police didn’t arrive for half an hour or more, then rocked up with five or so vans full. They managed to clear the private road and threatened the crowd with some kind of “public order” notices.

The ambassador and minister were not spotted, but presumably came in through a side entrance or otherwise, they were due to make speeches from 7.30PM. Guests had also been promised a chocolate fountain.

Comrade killed by police defending the wetland of Testet (ZAD, France)

October 28th, 2014

From rabbleldn, reposted from squat.net and contrainfo:

According to a statement from squatters in the ZAD (occupied “zone to be defended”) of Notre-Dame-des-Landes, during the night between Saturday and Sunday the 26th of October 2014 a protester named Remi was killed in clashes that broke out after a rally against the construction of a dam along the Sivens forest in the wetland of Testet in the Tarn department (southern France).

Around 7000 people gathered in the ZAD (zone to be defended) of Testet, after months of police attacks and destruction of the wetland and habitations of those who defend the area. In the late evening and overnight, dozens of people attacked the forces of order that were protecting the dam construction site. Activists expressed their anger trying to delay the resumption of works, originally scheduled for Monday the 27th of October.

The cops fired rubber bullets (known as flash-balls), distraction devices such as stun hand grenades and fragmentation grenades, and tear gases. According to testimonies of protesters from the Testet wetland area, Remi must have collapsed after being hit with a grenade; then his body was reportedly taken by the repressive forces.

Prefectural authorities stated they did not want to comment on the matter before the official autopsy was made public on Monday. The government has already begun to stigmatize the protesters, in addition to trying to divide them in order to cover up what happened. But they know very well that, whatever they do, this death will have explosive consequences.

Incendiary Attack at Golden Dawn’s “Bristol” café in Athens (Greece)

October 28th, 2014

325 receives and transmits this report:

The early hours of October 24th, we hit “Bristol” bar in Davaki Street, Ampelokipous with an incendiary device. This specific shop belongs to a well known member of Golden Dawn who was also a candidate in the local elections, Christos Zervas, and it is one of the Golden Dawn’s deputies and other fascists’ hangout.

This action is devoted to the memory of Pavlos Fyssas, of Shehzad Luqman and the other innumerable immigrants who were victims of state violence, expressed in the sea and land borders.

We carry on the antifascist struggle in the streets and in the squares and we wait nothing from the state “antifascism” and its fellow travelers, they are our enemies instead.

We don’t forget the struggle’s imprisoned and prosecuted ones.

Preventative arrests, persecutions and torture will not go unanswered.

Anarchist Stella Antoniou was arrested in Dimitsana, Tripoli, by ‘anti-terror’ pigs (Greece)

October 24th, 2014

Update: Stella Antoniou has been set free and the court is transferred until November 6th.

On Wednesday October 23rd , the anarchist Stella Antoniou was arrested in Dimitsana, Tripoli, for “violating” the restrictive conditions which is not true, as Stella has no restriction on going away from Attiki.

Stella contacted some comrades and let them know that despite her denial, 5 cops from the Counter-Terrorism Unit, tried 2 times to take DNA from her. At first, closing her nose so as she opens her mouth and they can take saliva from her with a cotton swab. Then pulling her hair and violently push her and throw her on the ground.

Due to the violent behavior, the comrade has a rupture under her eye and, as a result, she bleeds. This is very dangerous especially for Stella because of the problems she generally has with her eye.

There was a gathering today in the Tripolis court, but the cops didn’t let the solidarians enter the court.

There will be more information soon.

Message from the Red Help International Commission / Grussbotschaft der Kommission für eine Rote Hilfe International / Message de la commission pour un Secours Rouge International (Switzerland, Belgium)

October 24th, 2014

1.
At present, while the imperialist bourgeoisie is attacking on all fronts to enforce their deadly law of capitalism at any time in the life of each person, all resistance must be assessed positively, also armed resistance that leads to an irreducible denial of the system.

As an international force of resistance against repression and for the support of the resistant and revolutionary prisoners, our solidarity is for all those the system lets pay for their resistance – regardless of the form of repression (job loss, police brutality, torture or prison). But in that countless abundance of those who suffer from the violence of those in power because of their political commitment, we especially want to name those who manage to create a liberation project and give it a collective dimension and continuity.

Collection of long-term prisoner John Bowden’s writings on the prison regime published (UK)

October 24th, 2014

ABC Hurricane are pleased to publish a compilation of some of the writings of John Bowden. They provide a rare insight and history of the prison regime and bring to light cases and stories that normally never see the light of day, but are unfortunately all too common behind prison walls.

Posing no threat to anyone inside or outside prison (according to the Parole Board), the Prison Service is keeping John behind bars due to his continuing work exposing the abuses of the prison system – not just to himself but throughout HMP wings and especially in the darkest, hushed up corners of UK gaols. He has never backed down in the face of all that the regime can throw.

This publication comes at a time when he is calling again for as much pressure to be imposed on the prison authorities in the fight for his release – please spread these texts far and wide. Please get in touch by email if you would like printed copies.

German Prisons: Thomas Meyer-Falk – A contribution to the 2014 Anti-Prison Days in Vienna, Austria

October 24th, 2014

via contra-info:

Many of us are spontaneously and long since aware of it: prisons are places of ethical, humane, moral and cultural decay. There is no desire for life, freedom, humaneness conveyed there but instead the guards and any other staff treat the detainees as dead objects; they manage people as piece goods in a storehouse.

So prisons are necrophiliac places.

It was only a few weeks ago that a prison inmate – who was kept in solitary confinement for a couple of years after having broken a guard’s nose with a headbutt in 2012 – was starved to death in Germany. Read the rest of this entry »

War against ISIS/Daesh: Kobane latest – ISIS on retreat, new dangers ahead … (Kurdistan)

October 22nd, 2014

From rabbleldn:

In the last days there has been a shift in fortunes for the Kurdish defence units holding out in Kobane. Although heavy clashes continue, ISIS are being pushed back into the fringes of the town. The peoples protection units (YPG) have fought alone, for 35 days now, surrounded by ISIS (Da’esh) fascists with the latest weapons, blockaded by Turkey, with US air strikes only serving to funnel more fascist troops towards them.

Last week it looked like what everyone had feared was about to come to pass, as ISIS flags were raised towards the centre of the town. It looks, at least for now, as if the tide has been turned. This is the work of the defence groups of autonomous Rojava, fighting alone, fighting for their lives and their freedom.

In the last two days, there has also been a shift in the politics of US and Turkey. Yesterday (19 October) the US forces for the first time made air drops of small arms, ammunition, and medical supplies to the YPG (peoples defence units) in central Kobane. Then today (20 October) an announcement was reported from the Turkish state that it would allow US-backed Iraqi Kurdish fighters in to reinforce the town. Read the rest of this entry »

Mexico City: Bank branches attacked in solidarity with Mario, Carlos, Fernando and Abraham (Mexico)

October 21st, 2014

From contra-info:

A gesture of solidarity…

On the night of October 12th we used stones, slingshots and Molotov cocktails to sabotage two banking entities in Iztapalapa delegation of Mexico City.

Revolutionary solidarity is how we also show our support to the imprisoned comrades on hunger strike since the 1st [until the 17th] of October by attacking those responsible for this miserable everyday living. It is our response to the harassment of the comrades by guards, physicians and the staff of penitentiary institutions. So ours is a target easily identifiable and relatable to domination.

The insurrectionary anarchist perspective goes beyond the fetishism of fire or weapons. Our approach to anarchy is a struggle that has no interest in being a televised spectacle, nor need for “self-promotion” due to lack of promotion by the State. So ours is a simple and direct communication that corresponds to the requirement of the moment concerning the striking comrades; a simple and easily reproducible means.

The insurrectionary anarchist perspective is a method, often suitable for the generalization of individual and social conflict that subverts the normalcy. For insurrection as many other forms (and in their entirety) open up possibilities for a veritable revolution. An anarchist method for radical and profound change.

No mediation or dialogues with the State and the Capital!

For the struggle against all kinds of power, including the so-called Popular Power that is being sold to us as autonomy!

War against ISIS/Daesh: Armed Manifestation In Support Of Kobane (Turkey)

October 21st, 2014

Armed militants appeared on the streets of Diyarbakır, Southeastern Turkey tonight (20/10/2014) in a demonstration of combative solidarity with Kobane and in complete defiance of the fascist Turkish government.

The comrades expressed their anger by setting up burning barricades, throwing many molotovs and firing shots in the air. Messages of support for Kobane and denouncing the fascist Turkish state were broadcast via megaphone so all the people could hear. The comrades escaped into the night avoiding capture by Turkish security forces, all in all, a successful display of militant solidarity from deep within the Turkish state that gave hope to many Turkish people living under AKP tyranny and reminds Kobane & whole world that not all Turkish people support the barbaric actions of the criminal Erdogan regime!

Text from Nikos Maziotis, member of the Revolutionary Struggle, concerning the event at Athens National Technical University on “Armed War, Revolutionary Movement and Social Revolution” (Greece)

October 20th, 2014

Also see: Announcement of K*VOX occupied space, Exarxia, Athens.

On Friday 17th, October there was a public political event held in the National Technical University of Athens, from the comrades of the Vox Social Center, onArmed War, Revolutionary Movement and Social Revolution, during which I was going to speak through the phone from Diavata prison, as a member of the anarchist organization Revolutionary Struggle.

This public political event intended to highlight the huge value of the armed struggle, as an inextricable part of the struggle for the overthrow of the capital and the state, its inseparable connection with the revolutionary movement, the necessity of the armed social revolution under the current conditions, when the system is still in crisis and is illegitimized in the eyes of the society and by the people’s majority. Let me remind that a similar public political event was held on October 9th from the comrades of Terra Incognita squat in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, where I had talked through the phone.

#Op4Kobane : ColdHackers Attack Online Presence Of Turkish Regime (Cyberspace)

October 19th, 2014

Please note, this operation is now called #Op4Kobane, not #OpKobane anymore.

18/10/2014

Once again the comrades from Kurdish hacking collective ColdHackers have gone into action and attacked the online presence of the murderous and cowardly Turkish regime in solidarity with their YPG / YPJ brothers & sisters who are fighting for Rojava and the total liberation of Kobane.

In this latest co-ordinated wave of precision cyber attacks code-named #Op4Kobane, 6 Turkish regime-linked websites were skilfully defaced and 4 Turkish regime-linked Facebook accounts were completely hacked and at the time of this report were still in complete rebel control displaying YPG / YPJ solidarity messages and images.

On the 6 websites, a message was broadcast in Kurdish, English, French & Turkish languages. The message is as follows :

“MASSACRE IN ROJAVA WILL BE BROUGHT TO THE ACCOUNT. We will call a stop to bloodthirsty massacre of Kurdish people in Rojava. We will defy and will not remit to those who commits and supports this merciless massacre. We will take revenge on those uncivilized who slaughter the children and civilian population. O
barbarians we will breathe down your neck both in cyber and in real media, You and your brutal supporters will account for this horrible massacre. Our folk, for their freedom and liberty will fight for the last drop of their blood. Hooray freedom, Hooray Kurdistan, Hooray hero APO! Hacked By ColdHackers (KurdishHackers)!”.
