Call for an international week of solidarity with anarchists in Mexico facing repression (March 17-24, 2014)

March 6th, 2014

From instintosalvaje:

This is a call for international solidarity with anarchists in Mexico facing repression, whether they are stuck behind the iron bars of prison cells or hiding out for their freedom.

The state of Mexico has turned its attention to the blossoming anarchist space that has been actively attacking the state’s defense apparatus, the very foundation upon which it stands. Now is the best time to draw inspiration from the anarchist space in Mexico, and to show some love to our imprisoned comrades. The history of Mexico is very rich, and cannot be summed up in a text such as this. What can be mentioned, however, are the efforts that have been made to live in conflict with the state.

This call comes at a time when the anarchist space in Mexico has been actively contributing to a struggle against power and domination. Attacks on police vehicles, banks, government buildings, and other symbols of power have led the Mexican state on a hunt to persecute those who have effectively threatened their foundation of social peace.

Letter from John Bowden about his parole application (UK)

March 6th, 2014

Please sign the petition to the Parole Board for England and Wales and the Scottish Prison Service to release John Bowden

Imprisonment as a human experience probably has it’s closest parallel in slavery. People in prison are systematically stripped of basic human dignity and bodily integrity and reduced to the condition of caged animals. In terms of their relationship with the state and those who directly oversee and enforce their captivity prisoners are disempowered to the extent where even their most elemental of human rights are frequently treated with contempt and are in reality non-existent. By it’s very nature and intrinsic purpose imprisonment denies the imprisoned their very humanity. As a system and institution prison is incapable of being reformed and it most definitely doesn’t “rehabilitate” those held within it, and neither is it intended to; how can degrading and humiliating a human being improve the condition of their minds and characters. How can imprisoning and de-socialising someone make them more able and inclined to integrate back into “normal” society when they’ve emerged from such a brutalising and alienating experience? Prisons prime purpose is to punish and suppress and enforce social and political control – it is nothing more than a weapon of the state. Read the rest of this entry »

Korydallos Prison: Banner-drop by anarchist prisoners of the 4th wing in solidarity with hungerstrikers in the hospital section (Greece)

March 5th, 2014

Greek prisons:
“An act dedicated to our neighbours who are living in hell; from inside Koridallos”
Since February 17th, 2014, nearly 180 patient inmates at Aghios Pavlos ‘hospital’ in Koridallos prison are on strike, refusing meals and medications, to protest the horrific conditions.

Anarchists in the fourth wing of Koridallos men’s prison hung a banner out from the windows of ‘their’ cells, which are located directly opposite the prison hospital. The banner reads: “Strength, you guys! Break the sickening status quo you are experiencing (A)”. Hospital patients saw the banner and liked it a lot.

Strength to the prisoners’ struggle in Koridallos prison hospital!

Seattle: Department of Corrections Office Vandalized (USA)

March 5th, 2014

On Saturday [1 March 2014] the Department of Corrections Office in Seattle was paint bombed and had graffiti written on it with the message, “Destroy All Prisons (A) FTP (A)”. The office is a site of the prison society we all live in. The grand jury in Seattle has for the last year and a half embodied that prison society we struggle against. This action is meant as a small gesture against that repression and in solidarity with those who struggle against it. Fuck the DA, the FBI, and the grand jury.

“Hier und Jetzt!” – eine Broschüre (Germoney)

March 5th, 2014

Am 30. Oktober 2013 begann der Prozess gegen die beiden Gefӓhrten Nicola Gai und Alfredo Cospito. Ihnen wurde der Angriff auf den Atommanager Adinolfi, in Genua, vorgeworfen. Am 7. Mai 2012 wurde diesem vor seinem Haus aufgelauert und ins Knie geschossen. Zu der Tat bekannte sich die Zelle Olga FAI/FRI. Im darauffolgenden September wurden dann die beiden Gefӓhrten verhaftet. Dieser repressive Schlag reihte sich in eine ganze Serie von repressiven Operationen gegen AnarchistInnen in Italien: Z.B. die Operationen Ardire und Thor oder den langen Haftstrafen fϋr GefӓhrtInnen fϋr Genua 2001 und den Krawall 2011 in Rom. Immer werden den Verhafteten Angriffe oder Subversion in Form von Agitation vorgeworfen. Weder die Angriffe gegen das Bestehende, noch die Repression hören auf, so ist es wichtig sich nicht entmutigen zu lassen und sich mit den Gefӓhrten auf den verschiedenen Wegen solidarisch zu begnen.

In den Texten von Nicola und Alfredo können wir von ihrer kompromisslosen Haltung, gegenüber dem was uns unterdrückt, lesen. Beide sind trotz ihrer Situation im Knast weiterhin aktiv und beteiligen sich an Diskussionen.

Hier in PDF-Form


greetings with love and solidarity

Text of the anarchist Spiros Mandilas about the Anarchist Squat Nadir (Greece)

March 2nd, 2014

Lately, various interior matters taking place in Anarchist Squat Nadir, have been published, because of two or three people, thought they should publish a misinformative text of breakaway, in order to justify their cowardice or their failure.

Therefore, since a matter has been published, I owe too, to explain in public what has happened. Especially, since through this text, they accuse me of their breakaway.

Those people, after alienating some comrades from the squat, with their manners and their behavior, they tried to distort the political characteristics of Nadir. So, they started talking about communism, nechayevism, democratic fights, and generally, some things far from the political analysis and nature of the Nadir squat. Recently, those two or three people, even tried to isolate me from the convention’s decisions. Read the rest of this entry »

Gross Misconduct and the Guerilla Massive : Poems and Lunacy from Bristol (Dark Matter Publications)

Gross Misconduct and the Guerilla Massive : Poems and Lunacy from Bristol

“You won’t be taken hostage, you’ll be knocked well out of the game!”

325 is pleased to present a new zine for Dark Matter Publications, called “Gross Misconduct and the Guerilla Massive”. By printing this, we give a shout echoing to Darko Mathers, who died in January 2014, as we add to what he started. Anti-social, anti-civilisation, anarchist-nihilist and individualist writings and publishing. We know that Darko would have liked this pamphlet that we present here.

This 28 page personal zine is written by a hardcore anarchist vandal in Bristol, because they want to get some of their ideas down on paper. This zine is not the latest theoretical emission of dogma and over-serious waffling coming from the egg-head part of the anarchist movement. It’s a rowdy collection of poems and thoughts, as well as original photographs and images. For the sake of clarity, as some of our non-english readers might not necessarily understand, “massive” is also used for “gang” or “posse”. This zine contains UK lunacy that some folks might find potentially offensive or confusing.

“These are some of the observations I’ve put on paper that warm the spirit in my blood, not patiently waiting on bus stops or dole queues, or smiling at people I don’t give a shit about, but I do it all the same, because it helps the day run along that much smoother. I kick myself for the social compromises I make, politeness for an easy ride.”

FTW LOL X!

Istanbul: ELF-FAI/IRF torched an excavator in North Forests (Turkey)

February 27th, 2014

While we lit a cold and dark night with a pile of iron, the rising flames could be seen far from the site and aside from the pleasure that has given us, the action was taken in the service of eco-vandalism lobby which has a name that’s never been heard.

On Thursday, February 20th, in Poyraz rural regions of Anatolian part of Istanbul, we attacked an excavator which is left to sleep on the verge of excavating the nature and we spray painted several locations around the site with the signs of ‘ELF-FAI/IRF’. While this nature killer became unusable with a simple, time-set, handmade incendiary device, the message we wanted to give was clear: “If you build it, we will burn and destroy it!”.

Our major motivations for this action are;

We wanted to emphasize that the definitive attack against the dictatorship which legitimizes itself by conducting ecocide projects such as ’3. Bosphorus Bridge’ and ‘Canal Istanbul’, has to be manifested no more relying on stereotypes liberal-pacifist “consciousness raising campaigns” and “judicial process”. These kind of organizations are just trying to delay what is unavoidable and to hinder the reasonable eco-defense ground against current ecological destruction. Trying to get a positive decision from the State’s justice system which is actually the contractor of ecocides, they help weakening the anger by channeling it to polls or social media shares.

Porque ninguna cadena será perpetua, y ninguna cárcel de “alta seguridad”

-Claudia López-

 

via Publicacion Refractario [english here via actforfree/radioazione]:


Ante juicios de la inquisición democrática…. En permanente Actitud de Combate al poder

Un asalto, un policía muerto y las campañas de exterminio

“A veces sale caro defender a los ricos”- Alexander M. Jacob.

 

El 18 de octubre de 2007 se produce un asalto a una entidad bancaria ubicada en pleno centro de Santiago, el Banco Security. Carabineros cierra el perímetro de la sucursal  con el objetivo de dar con los participantes en el hecho. Así en un control a una  motocicleta, se produce un enfrentamiento  armado y  Luis Moyano, cabo de Carabineros, cae muerto en el lugar. Otro funcionario policial resulta herido.

Santiago Centro se convulsiona y la cacería se desata en venganza. El  Departamento de inteligencia de Carabineros hace un rápido balance de la orquestación táctica del atraco, caracterización de los participantes, tipo de armamento y repliegue. Tras rápidos análisis lanzan la sentencia: los autores son ex-miembros de un grupo subversivo. Read the rest of this entry »

Perquisizioni e indagati per gli attacchi avvenuti nel 2005 (Italia)

Martedì 25 Febbraio, nelle prime ore dell’alba, la Procura di Genova è ripartita all’attacco. Da quanto si legge dai giornali della stampa infame, 11 compagni sono stati perquisiti ed indagati dalla suddetta procura, in particolare dal pm Federico Manotti, con l’accusa di essere coloro che hanno attaccato la caserma dei R.I.S. di Parma il 24 ottobre 2005 in cui, sempre attraverso i pennivendoli a servizio dello Stato, sarebbero state rinvenute tracce di DNA del compagno Alfredo Cospito sul sacchetto che racchiudeva l’ordigno.

Atlanta, GA: Tractors sabotaged for the ZAD, No TAV, Hambach Forest (USA)

February 26th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

On the night of February 22nd, we poured a mixture of sand and water into the fuel tanks of two tractors used in the construction of a new Atlanta streetcar. The streetcar is one of many major development projects the city has initiated in the past few years as a part of a general plan to revitalize downtown. We know that this plan only means more police and unaffordable housing.

We offer this small gesture of solidarity to the ZAD, the No TAV movement, and the occupation of the Hambach Forest. We would also like to send strength to those affected by increased surveillance or repression the new developments have brought to Atlanta.

Our action was very simple to perform. It did not take long to plan or to enact and we found all of the materials on the side of the road. We do not believe that an accumulation of “actions” makes a revolution, but we wanted to give encouragment to the current and future participants of revolutionary struggles. Onward, strong hearts!

Calais: Fascist attacks continue against Rue Émile Dumont, Coulogne & call-out for assembly (France)

February 24th, 2014

Read this: Calais: Communiqué from people inside Rue Émile Dumont, Coulogne

325 receives and transmits:

UPDATE 8AM Monday 24/2:

Local Calais media are reporting the demonstration of around 50 racists continued through Sunday. The fire brigade were called after a group of men were spotted nearby by neighbours with jerrycans of petrol to prepare more molotov cocktails.

ASSEMBLY AGAINST FASCISM AND FOR TOLERANCE. AND SOLIDARITY

Call-out from anti-racist residents of Calais.

Gathering with music and dance, words and food.

Saturday 1 March 2.30 PM. Place d’Armes, Calais.

We are indignant to see that hundreds of people are living in the street whilst houses are empty and abandoned. Indignant about the passivity or hostility of the authorities and for the demonstrations of fascist hatred in these last days.

These fascists do not represent Calais. There are also many more people who have been engaged for years, as individuals or with groups, in hospitality and openness.

Whether we are long term residents of Calais or passing through, we will come to share a moment of tolerance and solidarity.

Sydney: Antifascist Actions (Australia)

February 24th, 2014

On the 26th of January in Brisbane, a few members of a fascist sect called the ‘Australia First Party’ attempted to disrupt the annual invasion day march held by the local indigenous community. On the same day in Canberra the fuehrer of the party, Jim Saleam (former leader of ‘National Action’ and ’Australian Nazi Party’) gave a podium speech at a protest against the new Bikie laws in Queensland. Back in December the party held a small rally outside the Greek consulate in Sydney in support of the ultra-nationalist Golden Dawn party. Read the rest of this entry »
