National Coalition of Syrian Revolution and Opposition Forces are pursuing a speech disgraced the honor of the Syrian Revolution and derails it from its real track
Every victory for the People’s Defense Units (YPG) at the expense of the terrorist organization of Daesh (ISIS) in Syria, with the air support by the International Coalition Forces, Syrian Coalition emerges statements (most recently on 30 May 2015) of trumped-up charges and baseless slanders. Also to discredit the achievements of the YPG, and mislead public opinion from horrific massacres committed by ISIS against the Syrian people in all their diversity – all serve the terrorist organization of ISIS.
The irresponsible actions of the Syrian Coalition intentionally distort the facts to cover up defeats and ISIS terrorism, and try to blow into the fire to stimulate hatred among the Syrian people. Syrian Coalition is pursuing a speech disgraced the honor of the Syrian Revolution and derails it from its real track and their aim to spread the spirit of sectarianism, ethnic and sectarian strife in Syria which is multi-ethnic and doctrines, to serve foreign agendas who do not want good and peace for Syrian people.

The emancipatory economic model which serves as the economic pillar in the Kurdish Popular Leader Abdullah Öcalan’s proposal around Democracy Autonomy and which aims at building a democratic, ecologically balanced society with egalitarian gender relations is coming to life every day in Rojava, according to an article in Özgür Gündem.
The Şehîd (‘Martyr’) Fadil Commune founded in the Cindirêsê district of the Efrîn Canton has replaced the logic of the capitalist market with that of a people’s market. The district market carries the distinction of being the first such market in the region and can meet the needs of residents in the region every Thursday. The market, which offers its service to the people on very low profit margins, reinvests of its income to the benefit of the local people. The market supplies such basic goods as fruits and vegetables, clothing and other textiles, as well as a myriad of other daily supplies. Speaking on the subject of expansion Ehmed Şea, a member of the Economic Committee of the Şehîd Fadil Commune, explained that “founded with the support of the district market’s service committee we occupy an area of 2,500 M2. As of now we have used 500 m2 for the people’s market. Because the central market was located for from our local population we decided to build a district market in our neighborhood. We want to develop further based on economic activities suitable to a communal model.”
From Rojava Report.
“My hands don’t get used to the artificial connection in virtual universes. Connected lives in wireless networks, my eyes search for the eternal fire of rebellion among the multitude of corpses and only in isolated gazes, the conscious individual emerges with dagger eyes that resists dying in the democratic cemetery. Before going to sleep I embrace chaos as an idea that liberates my body and my mind Because after all, it makes me feel alive. I do not want to search for the grail that will liberate future societies. My fingers search for the bloody flight of the destruction of the chains of the rhythmic fire, of the close fire of power and its masters.”
Mauricio Morales Duarte
This day, six years ago, comrade Mauricio Morales was heading to the school for prison guards in Santiago, in distant Chile, when suddenly the bomb, which he intended to place there, exploded prematurely depriving him of his life. Six years later, today at dawn, we carried out a double arson attack as a minimum tribute to the memory of the comrade.
We mined a two-storey building on Vouliagmenis avenue in Elliniko, where the offices of the insurance company Groupama Insurance (a subsidiary of the multinational banking group with the same name) and the offices of the multinational shipping company McQuilling Partners are co-located, placing four improvised incendiary devices. With this action we do not anticipate an impact on or the understanding by neither the willingly obedient mass of peaceful citizens nor the irredentist “professionals” of the movement. Of course, the recognition and appropriation of anarchist violent action by young comrades is a positive perspective. However, we do not see this as a condition or constraint for going on the offensive. That would be hypocritical, because part of our mentality and orientation, beyond the theoretical constitution and practice, remains the constant satisfaction of our instincts and desires, something which is far from negligible.

22.5.2015 – Comrades Nikos Maziotis and Kostas Gournas were transferred yesterday from Domokos prisons to Koridallos prisons where the upcoming trial will begin today 22.5.15 in the special court room of the prison.
The comrades were take straight to the basement cells of the female prisons, where they are basically in isolation…
After the demand by comrade Nikos Maziotis for a postponement in order for him to contact his lawyer since his transfer from Domokos was only the previous day, the court decided to adjourn till Wednesday June 10th at 9am.
After communicating with the comrades of the Revolutionary Struggle over the phone, we can state that they are strong and their morale is high!
Our comrades in NYC Antifa are calling for an international day of
solidarity with antifa political prisoners. Below is their call for
On Saturday, July 25, 2015 antifascists will fight against those who— in
the government or in the streets, dream of imposing their fascist and
other Far Right nationalist nightmares on the rest of us. Throughout the
world, Islamophobic, anti-Semitic, anti-immigrant, and racist bigotries
are on the rise. Antifas are on the frontline in confronting these
reactionary politics, and we will not forget our comrades imprisoned in
the course of this struggle. The July 25 International Day of Solidarity
with Antifascist Prisoners originated in 2014 as a day of Solidarity
with Jock Palfreeman, an Australian who is imprisoned in Bulgaria for
defending two Romani men from an attack by fascist football hooligans.
Groups around the world took action: holding demonstrations, benefits
supporting the Bulgarian Prisoners Association, writing to Jock, and
talking about the plight of the Romani and Sinti people in general. In
2015 we would like to expand this day of solidarity to all antifascist
prisoners around the world. We encourage groups to take the day to plan
an event of their choice— whether it is a letter-writing, demonstration,
benefit, or other action, and to focus on the prisoners and related
issues that are of most importance to them locally. For now, this is a
call for endorsements by international groups, organizations,
collective, and formations; a formal announcement is forthcoming.
ENDORSEMENTS CAN BE SENT TO: email@example.com
If there is an antifa prisoner you support, please e-mail us with his or
her details and the language(s) they can read.
Police crackdown on anarchist movement in Czech Republic
Arrests, home searches, interrogations, intimidation, confiscation of servers and other persecutions are results of recent wave of repressions against anarchist movement in the Czech Republic. Early on Tuesday of the 28th April, 2015 the Counter Organised Crime Unit of the Czech police (UOOZ) commenced operation Fenix targeting various individuals and organisations connected with anarchist movement across the country. Police operation was aimed on anarchist and left wing radicals who were supposed to commit series of arson attacks. Based on the information provided by the police, local news source Lidovky.cz has speculated that Network of Revolutionary Cells is responsible for the attacks. Read the rest of this entry »
On Friday 15th May a cop car parked outside the police station on Hostivařska Road in Prague was set on fire. This is the result of premeditated sabotage carried out by the M.A.P. cell. We were following the actions of the Network of Revolutionary Cells, but hesitated before turning our anger into direct action of attack. For a long time we were tormented by fear and indecision.
Then a change of direction happened. On 28th April the police launched an attack on the anarchist movement of the country we live in,and this facilitated our decision to act. We think other choices of this kind will follow. Perhaps a burnt out police car represents just a small step compared with what must be done to put an end to capitalism. Read the rest of this entry »
22/05/15 – The appeal court dropped charges of terrorism against Gianluca and Adriano.
The two anarchist comrades, held prisoner under the High Security 2 regime since 19th September 2013, had been accused of association with purposes of terrorism and subversion of the democratic order, as well as arson, aggravated theft in concurrence and defacement and soiling of private property: judicial concepts and repressive instruments to punish the 13 actions attributed to the comrades.
Specific charges remain in place, but as the charge of terrorism was dropped Adriano has been released, while Gianluca remains in prison.
Mikalai Dziadok protested against tortures by prison staff.
Viasna human rights centre learnt it from Valeria Khotsina, the wife of the political prisoner. Mikalai Dziadok was transferred to correctional facility No.9 in Horki
for his new prison term on May 12. On May 13, he was thrown into a
punishment cell for five days. On May 19, he was transferred to a
solitary confinement cell. Mikalai Dziadok spent the night in a very
cold cell and asked to be transferred to another cell.
On the morning of May 20, the political prisoner cut his abdomen and
arms to draw attention of prison officers. He received medical attention
in a medical unit and was returned to the same cold cell where he
remained until May 26. According to Valeria Khotsina, her husband
already received four sanctions.
Mikalai Dziadok has served 4.5 years of imprisonment for alleged
destructive actions against official buildings. He was to be released on
March 3, 2015. On February 26, the court of Mahilou’s Leninski district
sentenced the political prisoners to an additional year in a maximum
security correctional facility for violating article 411 of the Criminal
Code (disobeying orders of prison staff). The court of appeal upheld the
verdict on April 30.
In the midday hours of May 20, members of the People’s Defense Units (YPG) along with the Women’s Defense Units (YPJ) managed to completely liberate Mt. Abd al-Aziz (Kizwanan) from Daesh terrorists; in this way they achieved another historical victory through a resolute operation against the group that lasted for 14 consecutive days in Heseke countryside, Cizire Region, Rojava.

Contra el narcotráfico y el Estado Policial
La droga y la policía son la misma porquería: Que la autodefensa y
venganza se extienda
A no cederles ni un milímetro a los traficantes colaboradores y
cómplices con la represión.
El 14 de Mayo del 2015, distintas protestas estudiantiles se realizan a
lo largo de Chile. En Valparaíso un altercado por rayar una muralla,
hace que el miserable Giuseppe Briganti decida disparar una pistola 9
milímetros contra la multitud, dos jóvenes que participaban en la
protesta son muertos al ser alcanzados por las balas del bastardo.
Una sociedad enferma que avala la defensa de la propiedad privada, la
mantención del orden como un valor fundamental y justifica las
ejecuciones a quienes perturben la paz del cementerio, se alegra de las
balas de Giuseppe. La actitud matonesca, la necesidad de controlar el
territorio y mercado de drogas así como mantener la “tranquilidad”
defender la propiedad privada hacen que Giussepe dispare hacia el grupo,
sin apuntar a nadie en especifico… Simplemente Giussepe dispara, dispara
una y otra vez contra “la protesta”, cualquiera que se encontraba ahí
podría haber muerto, pero esta vez le toco a dos jóvenes.
Todo nuestro odio para Giuseppe y el poderío de los narcotraficantes
-contra quienes los sustentan, los defienden, financian y avalan-.
¡Ataca al Dominio en todas sus formas!
On Saturday, May 23, an activist of Autonomous Workers’ Union was attacked in the downtown Kyiv. The motives for the attack were political. The attackers had set up a meeting with the artist Dmitry M., posing as customers for his services. When Dmitry arrived, the two guys menacingly suggested to “go and talk somewhere else” and attacked him outright after his refusal. The fight was over in no time, as some passers-by intervened — the attackers withdrew, shouting their excuses: “He was the first to snitch on us on the Internet!”
The activist wasn’t injured; however, this act cannot be ignored. This set-up meeting was arranged neither by the police agents nor by boneheads, but by our Belarusian “comrades” – former political prisoner Alyaksandr Franzkevich and his friend Maxim aka “The Belarusian”.

The state exists to dominate and oppress the people. Rebellion exists to challenge and ultimately destroy the state. When the state singles out people to punish for acts of rebellion, we must support them as part of our struggle against this oppressive apparatus. Read the rest of this entry »
325 presents the first chapter of the inspiring book ‘Radical Peace: People Refusing War’, which, according to the author, William T. Hathaway, one of our regular readers enjoying our site, is “the true stories of anarchists who have moved beyond demonstrations and petitions into direct action, becoming criminals for peace by defying the government’s laws and impeding its capacity to kill”. The author is a US special forces combat veteran turned anarchist peace activist. Whilst it shouldn’t need to be repeated that 325 embraces not only revolutionary violence but a diversity of tactics, we “can understand those who hate violence to the point of wanting to banish it from their life; would never kill, would never use force to make themselves felt; those who, because of their own character and aptitude, prefer not to have recourse to it” [see Escalation].
Criminals for Peace Introduction to the book RADICAL PEACE: People Refusing War
By William T. Hathaway
How do we defuse an aggressive culture? How do we end an endless war?
A new group of war resisters, deserters, and anarchists from the USA, Europe, Iraq, and Afghanistan offers a variety of answers to these conundrum questions. In opposing militarism we’ve moved beyond demonstrations and petitions into direct action, flouting the government’s laws and impeding its ability to kill. As criminals for peace, we’re defying the PATRIOT Act and working underground in secret cells to undermine the US military empire.
I’m the spokesperson for the group because I live outside the “homeland” and as a Special Forces combat veteran I’m used to being under attack.
We’ve become outlaws out of despair. Obama’s morphing into a war president was the last straw. By continuing the aggression he’d promised to stop, he’s shown himself to be just another imperialist killing thousands of people to maintain US power. He portrayed his latest plan for Afghanistan as progress towards peace, but it really paves the way for long-term fighting as we now have in Iraq: US bases and support troops will stay indefinitely to prop up the local army. The killing will continue, but mercenaries and local soldiers will be doing most of it while the USA provides back-up. Just as many people will die, but far fewer will be Americans, so the war will disappear from the news and people’s minds. This is not a plan for peace but for endless war.

Marco Camenisch: ROS – psychiatry assumes the power to define the execution of probation and correctional law
The office for probation and corrections services of the cantonal Office for the Execution of Penal Sentences and Justice sabotages all efforts aiming at easing the situation of imprisonment of Marco or to grant parole for him. The office for enforcement 3 (SMV3) uses a clearly political argumentation: As an unbroken anarchist he can not be released from prison, and by drawing up an ROS report (risk-oriented sanctions enforcement), a kind of “Materials Testing Institution”, they acquire new arguments.
For some time the penal system is being aggressively colonized by psychiatry and psychology in Zurich as in prisons elsewhere. The report of the forensic psychiatric department from 31.3.2015, provides a “risk-oriented sanctions enforcement” assessment, a new evaluating development, since the report explicitly uses psychiatric argumentation only and for the first time formulates specific “recommendations”. Urbaniok’s psychiatry distributes contact prohibitions – defines political distancing or rather political renunciation as a requirement for conditional release. The big word is and remains the “crime-promoting ideology”! Read the rest of this entry »

In the afternoon on May 11, 2015 anarchists and anti-authoritarians occupied for several hours the headquarters of multinational company Siemens in Marousi, Athens, Greece, in the context of Class War, asking for German and European workers solidarity in the fight against the Greek and European capitalist system.

International revolutionary solidarity with anarchist companera Sol F. Vergara (Chile)
Our dear companera Sol was pointed out by power and accused of the attack on the miserable Banco Estado security guard Rolando Vargas Fuentes, in which 4 bullets were fired as a gesture of revenge for the murderous shots that another of his colleagues fired at the anarchist companero Sebastian Overluij, which slew him.

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. Their actions and their articulate anarchist analysis of capitalism and their high hopes for social revolution press a question to each reader who is ready to rebel and embrace their freedom. On 24 October 2011 their trial began. You can find updates about the process translated into English here and here. Update: N. Maziotis was captured after an armed clash with police in Athens. P.Roupa and their baby-son, Victor Lambros are still in clandestinity. Find further news here.
"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
The so-called "Security Case" concerns our revolutionary comrades Juan Aliste Vega, Marcelo Villarroel Sepulveda, and Freddy Fuentevilla Saa, who are currently held captive in prisons of the Chilean State. Some background info. See also here.
