Report from a comrade about the history of ISIS/Daesh (Iraq, Syria & Kurdistan)

October 13th, 2014

IS (Islamic State) is attacking Kobane city in Rojava (it means West Kurdistan in Kurdish) as everybody knows. But what I want to explain is, why there is this organization called Islamic State, and how it was founded. So maybe everything can become more clear.

We can say the history of ISIS begins with Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, who organized the strongest resistance against the USA and coalition troops in Iraq. Actually he is from Jordan, city called Zarqa, so he took this name “Zarqawi”.

In Jordan he was in an Salafist and Jihadist organization and he was imprisoned with his comrades because of this. Why doesn’t the Jordanian state want a Salafi-Jihadist organization? Read the rest of this entry »

October 13th, 2014

HOW WE STARTED

Friend and anarchist community organizer who runs Balay Tuklasan Likhaan Infoshop generously offered his other space (previously vacant and unused) to establish a community-based autonomous center called Feral Crust. The Feral Crust space is located in Mabato Road Brgy. Ibayo, Tipas Taguig, Metro Manila, Philippines in a squatted public road near industrial factories (cement, steel, livestock etc.).

Text about anarchist hunger and thirst striker Antonis Stamboulos by an Initiative of prisoners from A wing of Korydallos prison (Greece)

October 11th, 2014

Inter Arma received and translated:

Anarchist Antonis Staboulos has started a hunger and thirst strike because although there was a court order dictating that he should serve his pre-trial detention in Korydallos prison, he was illegally transferred to Larissa prison. This tactic used by the ministry of justice is not an isolated event. It is part of an overall vindictive strategy against those prisoners who are considered dangerous or are accused of being members of armed organizations. It’s the first glimpse of the type C prisons and of the imposed isolation from the prisoner’s family. We stand next to Anarchist Antonis Stamboulos and we warn the ministry that the death of a prisoner caused by a hunger and thirst strike will have consequences that they cannot predict. Let everyone claim his/her responsibilities. Strength to the hunger and thirst striker Antonis Staboulos.

Initiative of prisoners from A wing of Korydallos prison

-

Note: Antonis Stamboulos ended his hunger and thirst strike on 11 October. He wrote a statement explaining his decision which is being translated and will circulate soon.

Letter from Panagiotis Mihalakoglou and M.B. from Korydallos prison (Greece)

October 11th, 2014

Inter Arma received and translated:

Greetings to the comrades who attack with strength and decisiveness and sharpen the conflict of the insurrectionary war.

On Wednesday, October 1, 2014 the dogs of Counter-terrorism agency rang the bell at my home, where I was with comrade M.B. Half an hour later and after I was sure that there was no way of escaping or the possibility of fighting them, I opened the door and this resulted in them barging into the house.

They immediately put handcuffs on M.B. and sent him to their headquarters, while they kept my handcuffed in the house. During their search, they found weapons that belongs to me and with which comrade M.B. has nothing to do. Afterwards they transferred me at their headquarters as well. I was questioned for about 15 hours as they were trying to get information about the weapons and the actions of other comrades. They failed and they moved me to a cell without being able to communicate with M.B. who was locked up in the cell next to mine. After 5 days of detention, they took us before the prosecution judge and we were led to the basement of F wing of Korydallos prison to remain in pre-trial detention.

They don’t frighten us, they enrage us.

Solidarity and strength to all unrepentant political prisoners.

Proud and unrepentant anarchists

Panagiotis Mihalakoglou

M.B.

War against ISIS/Daesh: Report from the YPG about the defence of Kobani (Kurdistan)

October 11th, 2014

October 10, 2014 – The resistance of Kobani has entered the 25th day, such unparalleled resistance that expresses the finest epics of sacrifice to defend the honor and dignity of humanity.

The battle continues where ISIS mercenaries have increased their attacks on the city center, while their attacks have failed they resort to heavy weapons and rockets to shell the civilian neighborhoods of the city.

Eastern Front: The ISIS mercenaries yesterday attempted 4 times to attack the Kaniya Kurdan area, where the fighting started since the afternoon and continued to the late hours of the night, resulting in the killing of 16 mercenaries.

Southern Front: After the ISIS mercenaries sufferd big losses on this front, they brought more additional forces and increased their attacks on the Termik area, where this area witnessed a strong resistance, our units managed to destroy a vehicle of the mercenaries fully and kill those inside, and 13 mercenaries were killed as a result of the clashes in this region. Violent clashes took place yesterday at the Mishtenur front, our forces carried out a major operation against the mercenaries which resulted in the killing of 8 ISIS fighters, although the total number of dead is not confirmed by our troops.

Western Front: Our units carried out a strong campaign against several centers of the ISIS mercenaries yesterday in the western side, where our troops were able to force them to retreat from their fighting positions.

Five of our comrades were martyred yesterday in a great resistance that is being expressed every day by our units in order to thwart those terrorist plots and to remove all those black clouds from that beautiful city.

October 9, 2014 – The resistance of our great units and out people in Kobani has entered the 24th day, ISIS mercenaries which have brought all their forces and materiel from remote areas of Iraq, Deir ez-Zor, Ar-Raqqah, Manbej and Tell Abyad aim to eliminate the free will and democratic thought of our nation with all the insistence.

Mercenary groups yesterday attempted to carry out fierce attacks on three axes of Kobani (the western, eastern and southern fronts) to undermine our units, but our troops managed to repel the offensive.

On three fronts of the east side of the city a fierce battle continued until the late hours of the night, our units managed to repel all their attacks, also the ISIS mercenaries tried to attack our forces by a car bomb, our units remedied the situation and were able to foil their attack, where the car bomb detonated amongst them, resulting in the killing of 26 mercenaries.

Violent clashes took place at the Mistenur front, where our units were able to destroy a 57 cannon and kill 13 mercenaries. Direct clashes broke out in the southern front at a close range, 9 mercenaries were killed in these clashes.

The ISIS mercenaries tried 7 times yesterday to attack on the western front, our units responded to these attacks and violent clashes broke out, 12 mercenaries were killed according to what has been confirmed by our troops.

The result of the heroic resistance shown by our units on all the fronts was martyrdom of 9 of our comrades expressing all their courage and vigor against the tyrant, without a moment of thinking about surrender or defeat, which decently is the spirit of victory.

October 9, 2014 – This morning the ISIS mercenaries attempted to attack our units near the village of Dahma, southwestern countryside of Serekaniye (Ras al-Ayn), our troops managed to repel the attack. A number of the attackers were killed, clashes are ongoing.

PDF: Il Modelo SHAC

October 11th, 2014

PDF: Il Modello Shac

Italian language. Introduction in English:

“Is the SHAC model relevant also to other struggles and to different
contexts other than the animal liberation movement? At what conditions?
What are its advantages and flaws?

Today that one of the most influential pressure campaigns, globally, of
the animal liberation movement came to an end, it’s time to reflect
about the positive and negative aspects of this model of activism and
militancy, which nearly managed to put on its knees a vivisection
corporation, but in the end suffered the strikes of a harsh repression,
that the same movement wasn’t ready to face.

A model based on the diversity of tactics aiming at the same goal, the
closure of a corporation or of a torture place, through the attack
against its clients, suppliers, shareholders and all the other companies
to allow its business. What is undeniable is that this campaign couldn’t
get all the victories it got if it wasn’t supported by the hundreds of
direct actions (sabotages, liberations, arsons, threats…) done during
the last 10 years by the ALF, the Militant Forces against HLS and by
other groups or individuals determined to get on to action.”

Call out for the Anti-Prison Days in Vienna, 7-9 Nov 2014 (Austria)

October 11th, 2014

The Austrian word for jail is: Häfn, but no matter what name you give it, we are talking about the same thing here: Prison iron bars, cages, high walls, and barbed wire behind which those incarcerated are stashed away. for the ‘protection’ of our society, for punishment, to deter others, as revenge, or simply because their legal status in fortress Europe isn’t strong enough. The law will find enough reasons to stick you away. In these times of democracy, the reasons are ‘humane’; the penal system is the lesser evil in these times of unrestrained capitalistic freedom, capitalism supposedly being the best system, seeing as it just cant be beat.

The belief in the myth that those of us outside the walls and cages are free became manifested in the prisons of this world. This belief is delusive, creates false hopes, because we don’t believe in freedom within an exploitative capitalistic society, nor do we believe in the possibility of a reform of the logic of commodity and its society of spectacle, and we have absolutely no hope of finding within this system a better world. Free spaces, cuddle corners, small niches away from the prying eyes of power and control exist only in our heads, as a method of lying to ourselves and not facing the facts that it is impossible to exist within this system.

Erklärung des Anarchisten Antonis Stamboulos, inhaftiert in Athens Polizeihauptquartier (Griechenland)

October 11th, 2014

„Polizeihauptquartiere, Politiker und Zeitungen; verschiedene Namen, dieselben Schweine“

Am 1. Oktober 2014 wurde ich verhaftet, bekam eine Kapuze über den Kopf gezogen und wurde in einen Verhörraum der Antiterroreinheit gebracht. Von 17 Uhr bis ein Uhr morgens war eine Bande vermummter Bullen damit zugange, während mir die Hände auf dem Rücken gefesselt waren, mir DNA und Fingerabdrücke abzunehmen und mich mit Gewalt zu fotografieren, immer begleitet von höhnischen Bemerkungen, Würgegriffen, Verdrehungen und Schlägen.

Anarchists of Mytilene: About the latest raids and arrest of Antonis Stamboulos (Greece)

October 11th, 2014

On October 1st, the anarchist Antonis Stamboulos is arrested by the counter-terrorist agency accused of terrorist actions. His arrest was hyped from the media, in a furious journalistic climate, based on findings of guilt and imaginary scenarios as signed directly from the 12th floor of the police headquarters.

At the same time, under coordinated counter-terrorism investigations in Athens and Thessaloniki, five people were arrested, the two of whom were detained and driven to Korydallos prison, on charges of aggravated possession of weapons and possession of explosives. The arrested Panagiotis Michalakoglou claimed responsibility for the weapons found in his house, while M.B. has nothing to do with the case.

Antonis Stamboulos, from the first time of his arrest, refused to have any kind of communication with the cops, giving a struggle of dignity continuing till today, since he is on a hunger and thirst strike in Larissa prison from October 6th [Antonis ended the thirst strike October 11th, and issued a new letter explaining his position], demanding his transfer to Korydallos prison, so as he can be close to his familiars.

Action in Basel in solidarity with refugees in Berlin (Switzerland)

October 11th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

Early Tuesday morning (7 Oct. 2014), a German federal police car was set on fire at the Badischer Bahnhof (train station) in Basel. The car was completely destroyed. This action was in solidarity with the struggling refugees in Berlin and everywhere!

There, as here in Switzerland, people are degraded to problems for which a solution should be found. The solutions of politicians and authorities, as well as the cops as their henchmen, always mean confinement to detention centers, repression and often deportation to peoples’ countries of origin, or third countries.

The struggle of migrants, which they have determined for themselves against the systematic oppression they face, encourages us and at the same time, shows us the need for us to contribute to the sabotage of this repression machinery.

This action is also our response to the upcoming European police operation ‘Mos Maiorum’ (13th-26th Oct. 2014), which will attempt to have 18,000 police, in cooperation with Frontex, control and arrest as many people without residence permits as possible.

Active solidarity with all struggling migrants in Berlin and everywhere!

War against ISIS/Daesh: Revolution Will Win in Kobanê!- DAF (Kurdistan)

October 11th, 2014

Comrades in Boydê Village in Kurdistan release the following report:

It’s the 24th day of ISIS attacks on Kobanê. While people’s defending forces in all border villages are on human shield sentry for Kobanê against attacks, everyone, everywhere in the region we live, rose up so as not to let Kobanê fall.

We have been on human shield sentry for around three weeks in Boydê village west of Kobanê. In the last two days, explosions and sounds of clashes got intense in Kobanê’s outer districts and town center. During this period of intense clashes, military forces increased their attacks on human shield sentries at border villages. Soldiers of the Turkish State have been attacking with gas bombs to those who approach the border from both sides, including the village that we are in, which was attacked on Tuesday. Soldiers also used live ammunition from time to time in their attacks and wounded people.

These attacks on border villages especially mean that ISIS forces are allowed passage through the border.  The Republic of Turkey’s support to ISIS is clearly visible here as it is there. Of course that’s not the only thing that is clear. We have learned that one of the ISIS leaders commanding the attack on Kobanê got killed by YPJ/YPG forces. Meanwhile clashes today are as intense as before and continued all day long. Sounds of clashes almost never stopped today. However now we know that explosions are made by YPJ/YPG forces. It’s reported that YPJ/YPG forces tactically emptied the streets of Kobanê at town center and ambushed ISIS, neutralizing them with successful tactics. Read the rest of this entry »

“Chivo” Y Mario Gonzalez al 8 día de huelga de Hambre (Mexico)

October 11th, 2014

An update on the health of the comrades on hunger strike in mexico via cna mexico:

A 9 días de iniciada la huelga de hambre de 4 anarquistas presos en la ciudad de México, un médico del equipo de seguimiento revisó al compañero Carlos López “Chivo”, preso en el Reclusorio Oriente. Al llegar a la puerta del penal, los custodios que resguardaban el acceso dijeron no tener orden de dejar pasar, pero debido a la insistencia de los solidarios que acompañaban al equipo, este logro entrar. Después de permanecer casi dos horas con Carlos, esto es lo que nos comentan:

ESCUCHAR

Mario González no ha sido revisado aún por médicos del equipo de seguimiento, sin embargo sus familares informan que sus síntomas son dolor abdominal,mareos, debilidad e irritabilidad. Ha bajado aproximadamente 5 kilos. Sus signos vitales se mantienen estables.Sigue el acoso y amedrantamiento por parte de custodios.

War against ISIS/Daesh: YPJ Women’s Defense Units Command of Efrîn Canton – Statement regarding Kobane and martyrdom of the heroic comrade Arîn Mirkan (Kurdistan)

October 9th, 2014

Women’s Defense Units – YPJ
Command of Efrîn Canton

Kobani is continuing to resist since twenty-four days without losing anything of its insistence, all the world was waiting for Kobani to fall within two or three days but it refused to surrender. While its defenders are making history, it has become the example of heroism known to the world. At a time that women are hostile to the terrorist organizations such as ISIS, the bullet fire by our women adds to ISIS’ fears that they may find themselves in hell instead of heaven which they are promised [jihadis killed by a woman cannot go to heaven].

What was expressed today by comrade Arîn is the spirit of sacrifice for the freedom.

For the world and foremost for the ISIS to know, we renew our pledge to be worthy of the essence of the act of our fellow comrade Arîn Mirkan. We will take revenge on this organization by developing our defensive systems and educating our women, for the ISIS organization cannot be defined by any terms and it is far from humanity.

We will avenge those women who were sold as slaves in the markets of the ISIS organization, our vengeance will not only be bullets but by the smiling faces of our women, we swear that we make a hell for the ISIS on earth, as we salute the resistance of Kobani, this is our promise to our people and our fellow comrade Arin and every single one of our comrades who were martyred heroically in Kobani.

We call on all the women and invite them to consciously join this struggle in the ranks of our units of the Women’s Defense Units (YPJ).
