On Saturday, January 11th, the squatted social centre La Gatonera, located on 9, Amistad Street in the district of Carabanchel, Madrid, hosts an info event in solidarity with anarchist prisoners facing long sentences worldwide.
We meet at 18:30 and begin counter-information talk, with the aim to publicize some of the cases of brothers and sisters who are incarcerated in the democratic dungeons of different States for many years already. Following a presentation of the cases of Claudio Lavazza and Gabriel Pombo Da Silva (prisoners in the Spanish State), Marco Camenisch (imprisoned in Switzerland), Thomas Meyer-Falk (captive in Germany), Marie Mason and Eric McDavid (imprisoned in the United States), and José Miguel Sánchez Jiménez (prisoner in Chile), we freely discuss ways to strengthen and extend solidarity ties, also through structures of counter-information and factual support, with prisoners of social war.

The past two days, we have read in various police snitching websites and newspaper columns, targeted leaks by the anti-terrorist agency, which connect Inter Arma with the FAI/IRF”s projects “Phoenix” and “Green Nemesis” and claim that these are all part of the same guerrilla campaign. These specific snitches are known for targeting the comrades who participate in diffusing militant anarchist theory and action. The enemy has long ago realized the role that counter-information and translation projects play in the diffusion of Black International and in the communication between guerrilla formations all around the world. This oppression strategy, is nothing more than a known war tactic· the silencing of the opponent’s transmitters.
Projects like Inter Arma, have been targeted again in the past. We remind you that during “Ardire” operation in Italy, two counter-information projects (Culmine, ParoleArmate) and one publishing project (Edizioni Cerbero) had been hit by repression, a situation which resulted in many of them being pre-trial detained for many months. It is also known that the states of Greece and Italy co-operate against their common inner enemy.
We will not go even an inch back from our positions, nor will we change the nature of our project. We participate in an international network of similar projects and we support militant anarchy’s groups, prisoners and guerrilla cells. We have made our choice and we tend to keep our word.
Mobile Anarchist School volunteers and its immediate network have no time to rest; right after our first mission, we came back to Manila just to complete the requirements for “Climate Crises and Direct Action Forum” where we shared the details of our initiative in Leyte.
We able to gather resources enough to support six volunteers for 15 days action. We discussed the details of our second mission and carefully outlined our plan based on our experience.

We break the silence. Our life looks like a frozen product ready to be sold. We live in the concrete metropolises of your civilization, we submissively execute the orders of the managers, the bosses, the superiors, we operate like programmed robots, we breathe the polluted air of your factories, we wander and die on the high speed highways of your commodities, we believe in the false avatars of wealth, we desire what the advertisements command us to desire, we fall in love via screens, we communicate via keyboards, we imprison ourselves inside walls and storefronts, serial numbers and barcodes. That’s it… We break free from your prison. We are aware of the fact that everybody talks today about the financial crisis’ curse. The preachers of politics are attempting to rectify the numbers, to improve statistics, to invent the social formulas of treatment and promises of salvation.
Nobody mentions, however, that economy, the domination of wealth in social relationships, is an achievement of civilization that you taught and fed us with, all these years.
Meanwhile, nobody seems concerned about the murder of nature, the torture and killing of the animals and generally about the extermination of the human being itself caused by the totalitarianism of science of technology, its laboratory experiments, the nuclear energy, the radioactive “accidents”, the GE products, the cannibalism of massive meat production industry, the pollution of the oceans, the chemical weapons, the genetic manipulation, the deforestation… Read the rest of this entry »
From individual initiative, without bases of support or complex revolutionary rhetoric/theories, without complex destructive devices WE ATTACK! A Unique and Annihilating Attack, Belonging to itself and without any moral, ideological or material condition.
From individual initiative, we practice informality in this war that we assume as inevitable, and which we take part in through affinity. The fires and explosions in this act are consistent with the iconoclastic desire in every wild heart that associates egoistically. Read the rest of this entry »
[December 22, 2013] in the early hours of last week, group of people attacked police station with paint bombs and smoke bombs in AMSTERDAM. This modest action is in solidarity with Monica and Francisco and to all comrades in prison.
FUK TERRORIST LAW NO JUSTICE NO PEACE
Banardos is a children’s welfare charity that legitimizes the role of the UK Border Regime in their abuse of children. The charity plays a similar role to that of the Red Cross in Italy, where many comrades have attacked this NGO due to their ‘humanitarian’ part in the detention and ‘relief’ of refugees.

We claim responsibility for the spontaneous attack on the Barnardos store located in Broomhill shopping centre, Glasgow on the night of 28/10/13. Two rocks were thrown, smashing the windows of the shop.
Solidarity to all held prisoner by the state and its tools of racist oppression.
We call for an increase in attacks against all responsible and affiliated with the detention, deportation and racist immigration policies carried out by the UKBA, private security firms such as G4S, and anyone, like Barnardos who in any way make possible the kidnap and torture of innocent people.
Compañerxs, we´ll try to be as brief but objective as possible.
Since the evening of the 29th of December – the last day of the Informal Days: International Anarchist Symposium – up until today, the anarchist compañero Gustavo Rodríguez Romero has disappeared.
On the evening of the 29th, at approximately 7:30pm, Gustavo left the Che Guevara Auditorium alone headed in the direction of the Copilco metro station in order to later meet up with his partner and begin their return trip home. This never happened as Gustavo never arrived.
Five minutes after Gustavo left the auditorium, a compañera who was still at the event received a phone call from Gustavo, however only strange noise were heard, and after a few seconds the call dropped out. Given the strange call, the compañera called back on repeated occasions but without answer, and eventually assumed that later he would be in contact as had been arranged earlier.

Alfredo Bonanno o el anarquismo de praxis del siglo XXI
“Las prácticas de acción directa son ahora el corolario de este bagaje conceptual remozado. Cara a cara contra el enemigo, sin mediaciones ni gestorías: he ahí la divisa y el emblema de una práctica de intención, orientación y potencialidad anarquista”. Rafael Spósito (Daniel Barret)
Hace exactamente cuatro años, tres meses y 22 días, recibí la llamada de un entrañable compañero comunicándome una lamentable noticia: el querido Alfredo María Bonanno, había sido detenido tras una expropiación fallida en la ciudad de Trikala al norte de Grecia. Hoy, he tenido una breve conversación vía telefónica con el compa Alfredo que me produjo la misma indignación e impotencia que aquella trágica llamada.
En medio de la gritería y las expresiones altisonantes de los represores que le ordenaban apagar el teléfono, me informó que las autoridades migratorias le habían impedido el ingreso al territorio dominado por el Estado mexicano, declarándolo “persona non grata” por su presunta “peligrosidad” y “antecedentes penales”, motivo por el que lo han deportado a Argentina. Pese al poco tiempo que pudimos hablar sentí en sus escuetas palabras la fortaleza de un irreductible. Lo primero que le pregunté es cómo estaba de salud y me contestó que bien. Enfurecido, lo único que atiné a decirle es que lamentaba mucho la decisión de estos mierdas hijos de perra y me respondió optimista, con la serenidad y la condición reflexiva que lo caracteriza: “es lógico que esto nos pase”.

In the early hours of Thursday, September 26, 2013 we placed an explosive device at the tax office located in Kifissia [a northern suburb of Athens], as a first response to the efforts of the State to be portrayed as the referee and punisher of its Golden-Dawn employees, and its creation of a spectacle that can serve as a smokescreen, aiming to conceal its own fascist style of governance, as well as the murderous new austerity measures. Fascism, just like presidential parliamentary democracy, is a model of Power that’s based on the current economic organization and promotes capitalist interests. The policies which are implemented are those mandated by the free market, interests of which will never be democratic—in reality, we neither see democracy and freedom applied in working environments, nor in everyday life, which is organized by capitalism. Modern totalitarianism is imposed by concentration camps, shootings of migrant farm workers, as happened in Manolada [in the Peloponnese], the shutdown of public hospitals, layoffs, movie-inspired invasions of squats, starvation wages, the imprisonment of fighters, the defamation of leaderless social struggles, the public stigmatization of [alleged]HIV-positive women, tax raids, and the existing and future memoranda with the IMF/ECB/EU Troika.

LGBTQ ACTIVIST IRINA PUTILOSS FACES DEPORTATION TO RUSSIA DESPITE FLEEING BRUTAL PERSECUTION SIX MONTHS AGO.
Irina is an LGBTQ activist seeking asylum in the UK. On 6/12/13 she was unexpectedly detained by UKBA officials and taken to Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre. Yarl’s Wood has been the subject of recent controversy as cases of sexual abuse by private security guards against female detainees came to light (1). Despite the complexities of her case, she has been ‘fast tracked’ for a decision and faces potential deportation in a matter of days.
The so-called ‘Fast Track’ system allows asylum claims to be processed within 2 weeks, but has come under extensive criticism from migrant rights groups who claim it is heavily biased against the claimant. Less than 1% of fast track claims are successful. Read the rest of this entry »
Before I start describing the incident, I would like to mention the reasons why I haven’t initiated any formal complaint or lawsuit. First off, I declare myself an anarchist-antiauthoritarian. Therefore, my conscience cannot be misled by legal proceedings. Freedom combatants should draw the battle lines against the system and its “privileges” offered to us. In the following account of the incident (which occurred two days before the anniversary of the murder of comrade Alexis Grigoropoulos, in 2008), I want to make it clear that I do not consider myself a victim of the described attack, because the battle lines are drawn, and we stand against the enemy, as I already mentioned.

On Thursday the 28th of November, the Lenin district court of the city of Tyumen upheld the request of the prosecutor of said district in recognizing five articles of the journal Avtonom as “extremist.”
Of these, two are available in English: “Notes of a co-conspirator” is an obituary written by a friend in memory of Moscow anti-fascist and anarchist Ivan Khutorskoy, who was murdered in November of 2009. This text was published in issue 32 of the journal, and according to experts, it was “instigating hatred against the social group of right-wing radical skinheads.” Another of the banned texts which is available in English is “On anarchism and violence” by Antti Rautiainen, originally published under a pseudonym in the 33rd issue of the journal in the fall of 2011, and translated for this occasion.

Isn’t it strange how those who most loudly talk about ‘the mass’, ‘the people’, ‘the community’ – who repeat ad nauseam the importance of the social and pour scorn upon the individualists, that these people should begin their project by separating themselves off from their professed acolytes. And that, in their wild vitriol against those anarchists who refuse to submit to their rule, and their group-think, they impose a separateness on us who, in our anonymity and getting-on-with-it-in-our-own-way, are simply some of the people? When we break with the movement and submerge back into the ‘mass’ (whatever that means), the civil anarchists attempt to crush us, to ridicule our thought, our goals, our personal strategies for life, to describe our daily lives, activities and our characters in their arguments – as if they knew us – in order to shoot us down. And in this microcosmic revelation of the social tyranny, we see how this way is no more for liberation than Society’s: it is for conformity and the erasing of the difficult elements – a dystopia.

Pola Roupa, Nikos Maziotis, Kostas Gournas are imprisoned anarchist comrades in Greece who have taken responsibility, as well as of slain comrade Lambros Foundas, of membership of the Revolutionary Organisation - Revolutionary Struggle.

On 24 October 2011 their trial began. You can find updates about the process translated into English here and here. Update: N. Maziotis, P.Roupa and their baby-son, Victor Lambros have escaped into clandestinity and gone underground. Stay Free.
"This pamphlet is a meeting point of comrades from all over the world. An imaginary meeting since the walls and bars of the prisons where we are temporarily keep our bodies hostage. But our meanings remain free, escape from the cells of prison and are expressed with words continuing to provoke authority.
Words that still smell of fire and gunpowder, words which carry with them all of our hate for the system, words unrepentant and armed, words which transfer stresses and desires, words which break the isolation of prison, words full of passion for the mutiny we want to continue, words from Chile, Mexico, America, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Bulgaria, Indonesia..."CCF
