Washington DC: Solidarity Action at Greek Embassy (USA)

August 13th, 2015

Received August 10 2015:

STATEMENT:

Hundreds of our brothers and sisters in Greece are currently imprisoned.
The reasons why range from dissenting against the oppressive regimes, to
simply being a relative of a targeted anarchist. We speak out not only for
their unequivocal release, but also for the dismantling of the state
structure which oppresses all people, everywhere. As anarchists in the
occupied territory known as the United States of America, we know that
electoral politics will never represent the dreams of the people. The
decisions of Syriza have made this abundantly clear. Those in power will
never protect the people. We support not the firing of prison wardens, but
of setting fire to the prisons themselves. We do not support the stairs
being swept clean from the top to bottom, but for there to be no stairs.
The struggle in Greece is real. It is a struggle that needs to spread
across the planet. Our action tonight is a small show of solidarity to our
comrades. We hope to awaken our brothers and sisters as you have awoken
yours. The only solution is revolution.

War against ISIS/Daesh: International Brigade members of YPG arrested and locked up in a cell with Islamic State fascists (Kurdistan, Iraq)

August 3rd, 2015

Four foreign fighters of YPG were arrested in Iraq as they returned to their respective countries (two Americans, a Russian, and an unconfirmed fourth). They were eventually released after 23 days of detention. Robert Alleva Fonda and Michael (both Americans) have confirmed that they had been locked in the same cell that members of the Islamic State were in, despite having repeatedly said to the official of the KDP [Kurdistan Democratic Party, rightist party in power in Iraqi Kurdistan] that they were members of YPG. There is no need to specify the risks that have incurred the four being locked in the same cell as the Islamists.

Long live the revolution in Rojava

About some car fires in recent weeks in Berlin… (Germany)

August 3rd, 2015

For Mónica Caballero, Nikos Romanos, Francisco Solar, Nikos Maziotis and all upright prisoners, for those who burn the vehicles of the prison-construction company Vinci in the streets of Paris and have celebrated the 14 July national holiday in their own way, for the untouchables that throw once again μολότοφ [Molotov cocktails] and stones through the streets of Athens and not let themselves be deceived by Syriza… and for ourselves.

That’s why we torched a vehicle of the surveillance company Deutsche Telekom in the Wedding district of Berlin on 11/6/2015; we burned a van of the armaments company Siemens on the Stralau half-island on 13/7/2015; and caused a vehicle of the security company WISAG in the Paul-Junius-Straße to burst into flames on 17/7/2015.

Fortress Europe will collapse only when the storm on the outer boundaries connects itself with the local, inner subversions, and these struggles correlate with each other.

Invitation for the Fair of Subversive Editions in Lisbon (Portugal)

August 3rd, 2015

2nd Fair of Subversive Editions

On September 25, 26, and 27, in Lisbon, the 2nd Fair of Subversive Editions will return. We want this to once again be an open space for debate and the exchange of ideas critical of this reality we wish to subvert. We continue to believe that books, magazines, periodicals, zines, music, video, and debates are still important vehicles in the assault on this society that we reject, and in the search for alternatives that free us from the relations of domination it is based on. If you participate in a publishing group, bookstore, distro of subversive and non-party material, we invite you to come and participate.

To reserve your space at the Fair of Subversive Editions contact: mostradedicoesubversivas@riseup.net

Antifenix – Financial help needed (Czech Republic)

July 20th, 2015

Hello everybody,

Since we are still under the pressure of repression, there are quite big expenses in theFenix case and we are somehow unable to pay all these things (lawyers, support of the family of one imprisoned guy, food for prisoners, packages for the prisoners, etc.)

We would like to ask for any financial help possible. First we though that we will be able to do it ourselves and also we were already supported from some groups from other countries, but now it seems to be harder then we expected.

If you would like to donate/do a benefit event, please let us know.
Every amount of money is valuable for us..

Info in English is here on the website http://antifenix.noblogs.org

Thanks to everybody!

War against ISIS/Daesh: Massacre in Suruç as terror spreads across the border – over 50 dead and at least 100 injured in Islamist bombing – Call for international solidarity from MLKP (Turkey)

July 20th, 2015

20 July 2015 – A female suicide bomber with allegiances to Daesh/Islamic State is believed to be responsible for causing a blast in Suruç district of Urfa, which targeted around 300 members of Socialist Youth Associations Federation (SGDF) before their journey into Kobanê for reconstruction activities.

Over 50 young people were killed and over a 100 more were wounded, according to initial reports. The blast occurred in the garden of Amara Cultural Center, where the young people had been staying since their arrival in the district yesterday. The youths gathered in the garden to release a statement to the press before crossing into Kobanê. At the press gathering, a group of young people are chanting slogans while holding the federation’s flags and a large banner with the words: “We defended it together, we are building it together.” In the video recording of the meeting, an explosion rips through the young comrades instantly turning the scene into carnage. The garden of the culture center became a blood bath after the blast as the bodies of the youths were scattered around in pieces.

Suruc is a small Kurdish-majority city just a 15-minute drive from the border with Kobane. Suruc houses many refugees who have fled the fighting in Kobane. Kurdish activists in Suruc played a vital role during the siege of Kobane, sending food and medicine to the YPG Kurdish fighters to bolster their supplies. Many journalists and foreign fighters who wanted to go to Kobane went to Suruc and from there were sent on. There was panic in Suruc after the attack, with shopkeepers closing up for fear of a second attack. Suruc residents had feared that they could be the next target of Daesh ever since the attack on the pro-Kurdish party HDP election rally in Diyarbakir which took place on 5 June.

Massacre in Suruc! Call for International Solidarity

Dear Comrades,

This morning there was a massacre in the northern Kurdish city of Suruc against the participants of a delegation of the Federation of the Socialist Youth clubs (SGDF). Many young people were killed and injured in the bombing. The 300 young people were en-route to Kobanê for a week to rebuild the city to help out.

We call upon you to organise international solidarity actions between the 21-22nd July to protest against the massacre and the bloody policy of the AKP dictatorship [Turkish ruling party] and the fascist gangs of ISIS.

With revolutionary greetings

‘From Cheerleader to Enemy of the State’ – Chapter 7 of the book ‘Radical Peace: People Refusing War’ By William T. Hathaway (USA)

July 19th, 2015

From Cheerleader to Enemy of the State

Chapter 7 of the book
RADICAL PEACE: People Refusing War
By William T. Hathaway

The long, flouncy curls from Judy Davis’s cheerleader days are gone. Her straight blonde hair is now cut short. Large blue eyes stand out in a face pale without makeup. Her soft Southern drawl has an undertone of determination. “It’s taken me awhile, but now I’m glad to be considered an ‘unsuitable influence.’ That was how the school board justified my firing. That and ‘deviating from the curriculum.’ It’s like they were implying I was a deviant. And according to their norms, I am.”

The twenty-nine-year-old was fired for teaching her high school students how US foreign policy has provoked terrorism. This struggle with her school board turned her from a Republican into a revolutionary for peace.

“I taught my tenth grade American history class about what the USA has done for decades in the countries in which we now have terrorism. We work with the local oligarchs there to keep the country under control for our economic advantage. We support dictators and also the kind of managed democracy we have in the USA, where the only political parties that have a chance are those aligned with business and the private ownership of resources. People in those countries are tired of being kept at the bottom. They’re tired of CIA coups and assassinations of progressive leaders. So now they’re defending themselves the only way they can. And they’re getting pretty good at it. Read the rest of this entry »

A Voice of Middle Eastern Anarchists – The deadly ideology of Islam (Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, …)

July 19th, 2015

We do NOT see anything on any Western Anarchists site, Facebook, etc,
regarding all crimes happening in Iran by the brutal Islamic regime or in
Afghanistan by its puppet regime or many other Middle Eastern countries. But
when a woman in burqa will be attacked we see straightaway there is
rallies, actions etc, in their support under the name of being against
Islamophobia. But if any of “our comrades in Western countries will be
attacked”
or racist treated by fascist racist group, there is NOT a single
action to support our people. We are from Muslim background and we, of
course, respect Muslims. But we as anarchists we are strongly against all
religions, states, class society, fascism, borders, etc.

And we believe we should NOT stay silent on the brutality of Islam under the false reason that it could be against Muslim residents in Western countries!! We believe at the same time that we must be against all kinds of fascism / racism, but at the same time we also must reveal the deadly ideology of fascism in Islam that is hiding behind the burqa or anything else. We believe the burqa is NOT just a piece of clothing or dress, BUT it is “an ideology”, a deadly ideology of Islam who believes you must kill whoever is Not Muslim. You are allowed to marry your innocent child daughter to whomever you want even at the age of 6 or 9.
“A brutal sexual rape of little girls”. You must be stoned to death as a
woman, if you chose to have any sexual relationship with a man or a woman you
love. Your finger, arms, legs will be cut off, if as a poor you steal a piece of
bread. And many more ….

AND WE GUESS THIS IS OUR DIFFERENCE WITH WESTERN ANARCHISTS !!

Call for solidarity with internationalist prisoner Stephan Kaczynski who is on hungerstrike (Turkey)

July 16th, 2015

PDF: Hungerstrike flyer for Steve

TO THE PRESS AND PUBLIC
In the prison for foreigners in Maltepe, the law has been abrogated.

British citizen, Stephan Shah Kaczynski is kept in Maltepe L Type Prison
No.3, which is well-known as a prison for foreigners for already 4
months now. To demand the end to the unlawful actions of the prison
authorities against him, he continues a hungerstrike for 12 days (note:
today 15.07.2015 the hunger strike already reached 21 days).

The prison authorities of the Maltepe L Type Prison No. 3 not only
ignore the demands of Shah Kaczynski, they continue to violate the law
with its actions.

During his 4 months in prison, the prison administration didn’t hand out
any newspapers, books and magazines to Shah Kaczynski. As Shah Kaczynski
made several requests and talked to the prison authorities without any
result, he went on a hunger strike. Read the rest of this entry »

‘A Militant Prophet’ and other poems…

July 15th, 2015

A Militant Prophet
I’ll carry the cross for those who never made it.
Through fields of carnage of your own making.
For the lost, the homeless, the hungry, black boys slaughtered like pigs by pigs
your warriors coming home with missing limbs
“your worthless” underclass, the classless, your welfare queens
these names, the nameless, anonymous, faceless
salt of the earth who refuse to worship at the altars of gold
Your preemptive wars, the flag
You speak of Jesus Christ “Turn the other cheek”
stand idly by … submit!
Do nothing but preach surrounded by armies
crypto fascists!
I’ll finish this thread with a single threat
“Bread or Lead”

Lets Play Monopoly
Against the wall! All you autocrat, plutocrat, oligarchs, fascists.
Tonight we’ll bathe with the blood of tyrants!
Revolt at hand for a thousand years of shackles, cages, unlivable wages
Division of labor, exploitation.
Amazing, what you got away with.
Robbing whole nations, poverty, starvation
Wholesale extinction, world domination
All in the name of “The Trust Fund Generation”

The American Dream
Immortality I seek without fame,
Love without pain,
Riches without blame,
to conquer without shame
rule the world with a single aim
till death that never came.

Black Bloc
Convince the slave that he is free,
a simple lie repeat, the key,
Enough!
ground swells with single might,
standing before armies of men
clinching his fists
for here I am!

‘Exit Free’ – Chapter 6 of the book ‘Radical Peace: People Refusing War’ By William T. Hathaway (USA)

July 14th, 2015

Exit Free

Chapter 6 of the book
RADICAL PEACE: People Refusing War
By William T. Hathaway

The following report was contributed by one of the founders of Exit Free, a collective in the USA that helps women leave the military by discharge or desertion.

I’ve become a criminal for peace. How I got there is a complicated story, beginning when the community college where I teach reduced most of its humanities faculty to adjunct status. It saved them a bundle on salaries. We now teach a maximum of three courses per semester, for a really miserable hourly wage with no benefits. They brought in other part-timers to fill the gaps. So the faculty are now mostly freelancers. I ended up with a lot less money but a lot more time.

Several other women I knew were also broke — laid off or dropped out of the McJob economy. We decided to share the misery and formed a collective to make ends meet. One of us had a big empty-nester house from her divorce settlement, so we all moved in. We buy food in bulk, share two cars, planted a big garden, help each other with the things each of us is good at, sometimes quarrel and cry, but mostly we like being together. We feel stronger now than before when it was each of us alone against the neo-con world. Read the rest of this entry »

London: Disruption of public meeting between SWP & SYRIZA in solidarity with imprisoned comrades (UK)

July 14th, 2015

Insurrection News received and transmits:

In London on Saturday 11th July the Socialist Workers Party (SWP) hosted a public meeting attended by around 1000 people with a member of Syriza’s Central Committee.

Driven by a rejection of the SWP’s Patriarchal rape apologist authoritarian politics and to make clear to Syriza that the imprisonment of fellow Revolutionary Combatants will not go peacefully no matter what place of the world they run to, a small group of Anarchist co-conspirators made the decision to disrupt the meeting.

We successfully made it through their lines of burly ‘minders’ to reach the stage, where we unfurled a banner stating ‘Solidarity with Imprisoned Anarchists, not Syriza’ and chanted anti-prison slogans.

During our escape we were viciously attacked, one comrade had their hair pulled, the banner was stolen, we received death threats, compared to Nazis, there was damage to clothing etc.

This level of violence was unexpected, but revealed the Authoritarian nature of the SWP. Members of the crowd objected to the violence enacted on us, and hopefully this will make evident to them what kind of organisation the SWP is.

Fire to the Prisons!
No Peace for Syriza while our Comrades rot in their jails!
For Social Revolution and a People in Arms!
