Mobilisations outside and inside the prisons against the murder of Ilia Kareli and the new Type C prison plans (Greece)

April 9th, 2014

 

Footage from these moments:

A big mobilization has started since last month in almost all by now Greek prisons. The mobilization is a reaction for the new law about the maximum security type C prisons. Meanwhile an inmate named Ilia Kareli killed a guard with a knife and the guards in different prisons along with the police tortured him and killed him. So the mobilization acts also in honour with Kareli’s murder and is continuing the struggle. We also send some photos from the A wing of Koridallos prisons (Athens) in an act of honour of Ilia Kareli’s death.

The slogans say “we never forget, we never forgive” “fire to the prisons bombs to the courthouses” “if not now when?” There is also a video of slogans that were shouted at our refusal as prisoners of the A wing and the female wing to get in the prison from the prison yard for 1 hour after the normal yard lock down.

Here are some banners from the women’s prison of Koridallos during the protest of around 1000 people outside the prison against the new maximum security type c prisons.

Also some slogans written during the protest at Domokos prisons saying “rage and consciousness” “against the Greek Guantanamo” “knives in the prison guards” and “viva la fai/irf” Also at the Domokos prison protest there was some clashes between anarchists and cops. Read the rest of this entry »

Comrades in Skövde sentenced (Sweden)

April 8th, 2014

Today, Monday the seventh of April, our comrades in Skövde, Sweden, were sentenced. The comrade who’s still kept in captivity was sentenced to 2 years and 6 months in prison. One of the comrades who were released last week was sentenced to 1 year in prison. The other, with the more talkative approach in court, who also was released last week was sentenced to a probationary sentence. Yet two comrades, also they being on the outside, were sentenced to suspended sentences.

Even though the prosecutor creep did’nt get its will done, we see no reason to celebrate. Our comrades have still spent half a year – more and less – in the disgusting pre-trial isolation cells and they have still their sentences to either serve or evade.

Prison is and will, as long as this society continues to exist, be one of the worst weapons in the State arsenal. A weapon they are using every day in the social war against us and anybody who doesn’t fit in to their disgusting frames of Normality. Prison is however not an end station but a continuation of our struggle against this reality. To maintain a struggle without including the prison and justice system as targets, is to shoot oneself in the foot.

Fire to the prisons! Strength to our comrades!

Incendiary sabotage against sand quarry by ELF/FAI/IRF (Russia)

April 8th, 2014

During the night of February 14th we, the silent shadows, sneaked into the tree cutters camp.

It was 3 o’clock in the night, but the workers were awake. They were going back-and-forth around the encampment, one quarry excavator was raping Nature while guards were watching TVs on their posts drinking beer. In our experience the camp was pretty large: 6-7 living sheds, several sheds for tools, 2 passenger cars, 3 excavators and 1 grader. Having sneaked between sheds and vehicles, we selected two excavators that looked as the most recent addition to local park (i.e., their loss will be most expensive). After that we followed routine procedure: put some rags around engine parts and oil pumps, soaked them with gasoline, etc. After we left the area, we tarried for some time to enjoy the night view. Both excavators were trailing huge columns of smoke into the air. We establish the damage done at around 6-8 million rubles (approx. 200 000 USD).

We hope this act will slow down operations in this quarry. The area already boasts several abandoned quarries. Since our initial recon in this district large tracts of wood were drained and cut in order to clear up space for more quarry works. The sand excavated in here is used for future development projects that do not take Nature or clean air into account.

We wish best of luck to all of you. Keep that fire burning.

Repression against animal liberation comrades in Skövde (Sweden)

April 1st, 2014

Late 14th and early 15th of October 2013, five comrades were arrested and imprisoned in Skövde, Sweden, suspected for over twenty different attacks on furfarmers and the fur industry as well as liberations of minks. Three of the comrades were later considered to be main suspects and the two others were released, however still being suspects. Close upon the trial startup end of January, yet another person was detained for involvement in some of the suspected attacks but this person was also released, still being a suspect.

During their interrogations the three main suspects kept their mouths shut, besides one comrade who took the responsibility for a suspected arson against a garage belonging to a fur farmer.

Seeing the media potential, the disgusting ex-minister of justice Thomas Bodström, nowadays a populistic lawyer, took it on himself to represent all the fur farmers in the court process. Read the rest of this entry »

Letter from anarchist comrade Tamara Sol Vergara, accused of the attack against Banco Estado security (Chile)

March 31st, 2014

I thank you so much for your support, I can feel your unconditional love deep in my heart. Any letter, note, delicious sweet or money support is a joy and an injection of energy in this cage. Taking advantage of the fact you’re all meeting there, I’m going to clarify some doubts that apparently are circulating here and there.

As for clarifying the facts I’m not going to say a word but rather give some signals of the situation. As far as prison is concerned, I had to face the conditions of the unit where I find myself, which is called “public connotation”. Here the jailers are trying to establish a schizophrenic “friendship” with the female prisoners, thus creating a sort of Syndrome of Stockholm [Note: Syndrome of Stockholm refers to a particular state of mind, which manifests itself after experiencing an extremely violent or traumatic episode, for example kidnapping or continuous abuse. The person with Syndrome of Stockholm being kept in captivity or being abused, comes to express positive feelings, even including love, for his or her torturer, thus establishing some sort of alliance and complicity between the victim and the torturer].

DSEi arrestees privately prosecute companies who exhibited torture weapons at arms conference (UK)

March 30th, 2014

DSEi is the largest arms fair in the world, held at the Excel centre in Docklands, London. 325 usually does not print UK social activist news, such as legal challenges to the status quo. However, due to the NATO conference in Wales this year, and the diversity of tactics guildline, we have decided to print selected news relating to anti-arms trade and anti-militarism topics for the duration, or until we see fit to cease. We respect the aim of the DSEi arrestees who “see this litigation as part of a wider strategy to discredit, and then shut down DSEi for good”.

We need your help to put the arms dealers on trial. We are a group of women seeking to privately prosecute the arms dealers who sold illegal torture weapons at DSEi arms fair last year. You can learn more about our case and sign up for updates on our website: http://armsdealersontrial.wordpress.com/

Volos: Responsibility claim for arson attack on Tax Office (Greece)

March 30th, 2014

via contra info:

1,000 hours of theory equal 1 minute of action.

In the early morning hours of Friday, March 21st, 2014, we attacked the tax office of the Nea Ionia district in the city of Volos. We chose to torch the tax archives, and poured records with gasoline and lit them on fire. Our goal was to expand the flames throughout the whole of the building, but due to lack of oxygen the fire didn’t spread. Next time we’ll be more cautious.

- The reasons why we chose to target the tax office are self-evident. Our only debt to the main predatory mechanism of the State is its destruction.

- Action replaces tears.

- We take action to overcome our fears.

- We will not wait for any condition to become ripe.

- We will not wait for any society to wake up.

- We will not wait for any ‘revolutionary’ to revolutionize oneself.

We urge anyone who doesn’t want to live a slavish life, anyone who consciously opposes this aging world, to let go of the miseries and ideologized inactivity, and act aggressively.

Let us be the ones who start to determine the current event agenda.

Letter from Fallon, an anarchist imprisoned for attacks with molotovs (Mexico)

March 28th, 2014

I want to begin this letter with a huge hug for all the compxs who are on the run, all those who are fighting for their liberty, and all those who are locked up and for whom this world of domination is trying to quell their rage. There is no cell, no wall, no authority to whom I give enough power to quiet my rage and my desire for liberty. I’ve had these feelings since I was a little one and now, in my heart and my head, they are stronger than ever, and there isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t think of you guys, my friends. I can imagine, and they tell me as well, that the situation outside is very precarious. This doesn’t surprise me, as us deciding to be in conflict comes with repression.

Sabotagemedia corrects a mistake in the counter-info work concerning Amélie Trudeau Pelletier (Canada)

March 28th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

Greetings comrades,

With this message we would like to inform that the name of Amélie is not Pillierst, this is an error being reproduced in various communiqués and contra-info sites. Her name is Amélie Trudeau Pelletier. We normally do not modify errors in the original communiques (only in our translations) but seeing the extent it has taken, we are modifying all references to Pillierst in past communiques. To avoid more of this confusion, we strongly advise you to correct your references or “tags”.

warm embraces

-Sabotagemedia

The error that was reproduced by 325 site amongst others originated here:

Repression in Spain – A call for international solidarity

March 28th, 2014

325 receives and transmits this text from one of our comrades who is targeted by this latest repressive wave:

During the last three years Spanish society has witnessed a period of intense social protests against austerity, corruption, unemployment and so on. As in other times in history, the greater and more radicalised the protest the bigger the repression that the state organises against it. Since the general strike in September 2010, a common trend of this repression strategy is been a kind of ‘laissez faire’ in the streets but followed by ´selective´ detentions months later. Police have been literally knocking doors down of those who continuously take part in different actions and demonstrations, and consequently dozens of people have been arrested.

Belarusian anarchist detained on Russian-Ukrainian border (Russia)

March 26th, 2014

Anarchist from Gomel – Dzmitry Rezanovich – was detained on March 13-14 by Russian security forces when he tried to cross the Russian-Ukrainian border. He is now at one of the Kursk pre-trial facilities, relatives are not allowed to visit him. It’s not yet clear what was the reason for detention. He had the passport of his brother, but it looks like the special services were not interested in this misdemeanor, they allegedly suspect him of a conspiracy to launch an attack on Kursk nuclear power plant as well as participation in Maidan protests.

We think this story is connected with the Russian hysteria about possible war with the Ukraine and expected diversive acts from Ukrainian side.
