Text concerning Hambach Forest (Germany)

January 29th, 2016

The conflict against RWE at Hambacher forest has intensified with every
day since the beginning of this new year.

Many individuals embracing a diverse variety of tactics have been hard
at work bringing anarchic mischief to the mine.

Some elements of practical refusal from the occupiers of the forest
include:

* The continuous barricading of the roads used by security and
construction vehicles, as well as structural damage to the bridges they
use with fire and pick axes.

*Tree-spiking and the placement of “potential improvised explosive
devices” in threatened areas of the forest, as well as more and more
barricades, platforms and tree-defenses deeper in the woods.

Reclaim The Cape – Anti-Nuclear action week 22.4.-1.5.2016 (Finland)

January 29th, 2016

So. There’s an anti-nuclear protest site at the west coast of Finland. And it’s
holding an action week between 22th of April – 1th of May, 2016, while celebrating
its first anniversary of existence. What’s all this about? To put it all in a simple
nutshell:

Fennovoima is a Finnish nuclear power company established in 2007 by a consortium of
Finnish power and industrial companies thinking it’s a mighty good idea to put up a
nuke plant at Pyhäjoki, a small municipality at the west coast of Finland – by any
means necessary. Fennovoima’s project nearly faced its much wished-for doom when
German energy giant E.ON, the main investor of the project at that time, decided
nuclear power is bad business and withdrew its money in 2012. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Sedition, Subversion, Sabotage: A Long-War Strategy for the Left’ by William T. Hathaway (USA)

January 29th, 2016

As the viciousness of capitalism engulfs ever more of us, our yearnings for change are approaching desperation. The system’s current leader, Barack Obama, has shown us that the only change we can believe in is what we ourselves create.

To do that, we need to know what is possible in our times and what isn’t. The bitter probability is that none of us will see a society in which we’d actually want to live. Even the youngest of us will most likely have to endure an increasingly unpleasant form of capitalism. Despite its recurring crises, this system is still too strong, too adaptable, and has too many supporters in all classes for it to be overthrown any time soon. We’re probably not going to be the ones to create a new society.

But we can now lay the groundwork for that, first by exposing the hoax that liberal reforms will lead to basic changes. People need to see that the purpose of liberalism is to defuse discontent with promises of the future and thus prevent mass opposition from coalescing. It diverts potentially revolutionary energy into superficial dead ends. Bernie Sanders’ “long game” campaign is really only a game similar to that of his reformist predecessor, Dennis Kucinich, designed to keep us in the “big tent” of the Democratic Party. Capitalism, although resilient, is willing to change only in ways that shore it up, so before anything truly different can be built, we have to bring it down. Read the rest of this entry »

Judgment entered against police in undercover relationships case (UK)

January 29th, 2016

From Police Spies Out of Lives:

On Friday 15th January 2016, the Metropolitan Police withdrew their defence in a case brought against them over undercover police relationships. In a significant development at the High Court, the police asked for judgment to be entered against them in respect of the claims for deceit, assault/battery, misfeasance in public office and negligence.

The claim had been brought by Kate Wilson, who was deceived into a 2-year relationship with undercover officer Mark Kennedy. The successful claim states that supervising officers had been negligent and had acted improperly in causing or allowing the relationship to happen.

The implication of this judgment is that the actions of Mark Kennedy “were undertaken with the express or tacit knowledge of other police officers employed by [the Metropolitan Police]”. Supervising and managing officers “knew that [Mark Kennedy] was abusing the power that he was given as an undercover police officer”, and their failure to act on this knowledge was “unlawful and in abuse of their own duties as supervisors and managers of [Mark Kennedy’s] undercover activities.” Read the rest of this entry »

Berlin: Political projects of Friedrichshain’s northKiez call for a demonstration on 6/2 (Germany)

January 24th, 2016

After the major offensive on Rigaer 94 by 500 cops, SEK, a K-9 unit and a helicopter, the northKiez of Friedrichshain is still under siege. There are constant controls all around Rigaerstraße and the streets are patrolled by massive swathes of cops.

We take the attack on the night of 13.01.2016 on Rigaer 94 and the assault on Liebig34 on the same evening as an attack on all of us! It is an affront to all of us that resist, organise, plan, act and network every day; against all those that cannot pay their rents anymore and get displaced.

To the cops and politicians speculation to be able to force us into capitulation and resignation by repression we respond: Forget it! We will not yield a centimeter! Now more than ever!

We are calling everyone, to go out on the streets with us on February 6th to fight against ‘danger zones’, police terror and displacement.

Call to action:
Defend rebellious structures, create neighbourhoods of solidarity!


Saturday 6th February 2016 | Berlin

Gathering at 16:00 in front of Wagenplatz Rummelplatz, Gürtelstrasse 26

Demonstration at 17:00 (be on time!)

Korydallos Prison: Update on new repressions against CCF & Nikos Romanos (Greece)

January 22nd, 2016

Yesterday on the 20th of January another sudden search was once again conducted inside the cells housing imprisoned members of the anarchist organization Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (CCF) as well as anarchist prisoner Nikos Romanos at Section A of Korydallos Prison.

The search was coordinated by prison official Victoria Marsioni who had previously made threats against CCF members involving disciplinary transfers to other facilities after they hung a banner in solidarity with the hunger strike of anarchist Evi Statiri.

It is most certain that Marsioni is not acting independently but receives orders from above and this recent search is merely another addition to a systematic exercise of pressure against the imprisoned members of the CCF, which is orchestrated by high ranking officials of the ‘leftist’ Ministry of Justice and Counter-Terrorism Police.

Prague: Network of Revolutionary Cells claim responsibility for several acts of sabotage against Řízkárna (Czech Republic)

January 22nd, 2016

Network of Revolutionary Cells (SRB) has sabotaged cars of the Řízkárna restaurant
in Prague four times this year. Space for reaction of the thief Vladimír Krulec was
given. He could have reacted in several different ways. For example, he could have
made some calculations and realized that paying his people for work would cost him
less than covering sabotage losses. He failed at these simple calculations though.

He used various tools against the SRB and other parts of the anarchistic movement.
He tried to ridicule, demonize and threaten us. His threats however cause exactly
what a reasonable person would expect. More resistance against his restaurant. Thief
and bully who likes to make himself look like a victim in the press is giving,
through this behaviour, massive amounts of energy to those who don’t want to see his crimes against the working class go unpunished. This very same energy started the second wave of the Řízkárna resistance. Read the rest of this entry »

Artefacto incendiario desactivado al interior de un banco BCI en Maipu (Chile)

January 22nd, 2016

[Noticias de la Guerra Social]

A las 03:40 de la madrugada del 18 de enero del 2016, la cámara de
vigilancia del banco BCI ubicado en la comuna de Maipu en la avenida
pajaritos a la altura del paradero 17 capto a un encapuchado dejando un
artefacto sospechoso en el sector de los cajeros automáticos.
Finalmente el objeto resulto ser un artefacto incendiario compuesto
principalmente de un bidón de bencina, mas un sistema que no alcanzo a
ser ignición dejando lamentablemente los cajeros y la infraestructura
financiera intacta.
Al día siguiente, tras percatarse de este elemento rápidamente fueron
los bastardos del GOPE y demases policías especializadas a desactivar
aquel artefacto.
Ricardo Barriga, mayor de la 25 Comisaria de Maipú señalo: “Se logra
establecer que hay elementos que revisten alguna característica de
artefacto incendiario, con lo cual se efectúa el protocolo de rigor,
concurrencia del equipo del GOPE, estableciéndose la presencia de
algunos elementos que podrían hacer establecer científicamente respecto
a algún artefacto explosivo”,
Finalmente la investigación quedo en manos de la fiscalía sur,
autodenominada especialista en casos de atentados explosivos o
incendiarios, sin que hasta el momento existan reivindicaciones del
ataque al entramado financiero.

Solidarity actions against French consulate and VINCI owned companies (Australia)

January 22nd, 2016

Disruption of VINCI and French Consulate

To the defenders of the ZAD,
Solidarity from anarchists in so-called ‘Melbourne, Australia’- the never-ceded indigenous land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, stolen and occupied by the genocidal settler-colonial state.

In response to recent threats of violent eviction by the French State, actions were taken at several locations in Melbourne, the city built on the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, in colonised Australia. The actions targetted the French consulate and offices of companies of the VINCI corporate-family linked to the proposed destruction of land at the Zone-A-Defendre.

The French consulate was attacked with paint and its locks were stuffed and glued.
The Offices of Menard-Bachy and Fressynet (both companies owned by VINCI), had their windows broken and slogans in support of the ZAD painted on the facade.

The Melbourne office of Electrix (a company owned by VINCI) was redecorated with a number of slogans celebrating resistance to VINCI’s plans.

Police raid Chūkaku-ha base over long-time Shibuya riot fugitive, arrest two (Japan)

January 22nd, 2016

via throwoutyourbooks:

On January 18th, police raided a small apartment in Kita ward in Tokyo, where they uncovered hints on the whereabouts of Masaaki Ōsaka. Now aged 66, Ōsaka was an activist in the far-left radical group Chūkaku-ha and is named as a suspect in the death of a police officer during a riot in Shibuya 45 years ago.

Police announced that the apartment was a Chūkaku-ha ajito, or secret base, and that they believe Ōsaka is had been living there until a few years ago. This is the first known raid on a place where he is suspected to have resided. Ōsaka has been on the lam the longest among the most-wanted fugitives in Japan. His image remains a common sight on wanted posters at police substations, especially in Tokyo.

Police perennially make announcements about Ōsaka as they find the crumbs left behind on his fugitive trail. In 2012, an ajito was exposed in Tachikawa City, west Tokyo, and items seized from it revealed possibilities that Ōsaka was hiding out somewhere in Kita ward. Read the rest of this entry »

Statement from Eco-Prisoner Marius Mason for the Trans Prisoner Day of Action and Solidarity January 22nd 2016 (USA)

January 21st, 2016

Happy New Year, Family and Friends! Many, many thanks for so much support and care over this year from both long-standing friends and new pen pals. I feel very grateful and am always humbled by the encouragement and resources sent my way by folks who are doing so much already to increase our collective chances for survival. The news has been full of stories about someone winning the big money pool that has accumulated for the US Lotto – but the most important “win” has nothing to do with money. I am betting on the movement to win big this year: in getting more control over their communities and defending against police brutality and racial inequality, in winning more victories for animal and in the defense of wild spaces, in creating social relations based on respect, dignity and compassion for all people… irregardless of their race, orientation, creed or gender presentation.

Anarchist comrade Gabriel Pombo da Silva wins his demands and stops hunger strike (Spain)

January 20th, 2016

Yesterday, 19 January, imprisoned anarchist Gabriel Pombo da Silva came off his hunger strike which he started on the 17 January with the demand to get a single cell. The comrade won his demand and stopped the hunger strike. Companion Juankar Santana Martín, who started a hunger strike in solidarity also stopped his hunger strike. The move by the prison lackies of Dueñas to mess around with Gabriel is a typical act to provoke him during his regular prison transfers.
The victory for his demand shows that each attempt by the authorities to harass our imprisoned comrades should be met with resistance and agitation. Solidarity to those who fight.

Genesis P-Orridge “Esoterrorist” – Selected Essays 1980-1988 (UK)

January 20th, 2016

PDF: Genesis P-Orridge – Esoterrorist

It is always difficult to know what to say when one introduces new ideas to the public, particularly when such ideas run against the grain of established thought. The work and writings of Genesis P-Orridge are no exception to this rule.

The writings in this volume are by no means the collected output of one who has spent their entire adult life publicly questioning inherited values and thought patterns, rather, this is a representation of their work spanning the later Throbbing Gristle era (ca. 1980) through about 1988. No attempt has been made to collate the pieces either chronologically or by subject, it seems preferable to offer them in random order. Thus, it is not essential to read them sequentially – pick up the book, thumb through the pages until something arouses your interest, then read that article or passage.
