Responsibility claim for Molotov attack against anti-riot squad in Exarchia (Athens, Greece)

July 21st, 2014

via contra-info:

In the early hours of Sunday, July 20th, we attacked the bastards of the MAT anti-riot squad with Molotov cocktails at the headquarters of Greece’s socialist PASOK co-ruling party located in Charilaou Trikoupi Street, Exarchia, as a minimum act of solidarity with urban guerrilla fighter Nikos Maziotis…

The States are the only terrorists. Solidarity with urban guerrilla fighters!

Strength and solidarity to anarchist combatant Nikos Maziotis, and Pola Roupa who has a bounty on her head.

Comrades Gianluca and Adriano sentenced (Italy)

July 20th, 2014

Rome – 18th of July 2014

The anarchist comrades Gianluca Iacovacci and Adriano Antonacci were
sentenced today by the judge Simonetta D’Alessandro to 6 years (Gianluca)
and 3 years and 8 months (Adriano) of jail for several sabotages and incendiary attacks against ENIL, ENEL [Energy companies], a fur shop, banks and the working site of a refuse-dump in the area surrounding Rome, between 2010 and 2013.

The judge confirmed the charge of 270bis (subversive association) with the aim of international terrorism. Gianluca claimed some time ago the responsibility for some of the actions they were accused of, the ones signed by FAI.

During the trial he refused to defend himself and resigned the lawyer, both of them refused to participate in the trial by video-conference.

Incendiary solidarity with our two comrades!!!

Continued Assaults on Asylum Seekers in Sofia Central Prison (Bulgaria)

July 20th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

On the 6/7/14 at 8.30am the guard Peter Petrov performed the morning roll call, he entered cell 11 and started shouting in Bulgarian, a language no one present understood. As the roll call finished for that cell he then started to assault a mentally ill man from behind as he was not moving fast enough. The mentally ill man is about 45kgs, about 55 years old and a citizen of Comoros. He then retaliated and slapped the guard back after the guard Peter Petrov hit him and kicked him again, the guard came at the Comoros Islander again and the African took a chair to keep the guard away from him.

Three other guards came and only saw the Comoros islander with the chair and so they beat him too. Peter Petrov then ran out of the cell, locked all the cell doors and called for “assistance”. Forty guards came from two work shifts, from the Saturday evening shift and the incoming Sunday day shift, as now shifts are 12 hours. The forty guards summarily beat everyone in the cell – the man from Comoros, 4 Afghanis, 1 Pakistani, 1 Dutch man and an Algerian. They were not resisting in any way and most of the wounds inflicted by the guards are on their backs as they tried to cover their faces on the ground. All of these victims are incarcerated for illegal border crossing- they are all asylum seekers. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Nihilist Sect of Free Death’ takes responsibility for several unknown incendiary attacks in Rome and issues opening statement (Italy)

July 19th, 2014

We receive and transmit with the following editorial note:

With regard to “warning signals” or “phone calls” prior to explosive attacks, this is part of the tradition of many countries’ urban guerrilla groups, and it aims to prevent unnecessary loss of life and injuries. Many of these radical groups don’t need to issue warnings for their attacks, as they are carried out with a different set of operating parameters – often targeting property in such a way that unintended harm does not result to humans or non-human animals. There is also security, logistical, technical and repressive factors, but generally speaking, the nihilist, anarchist and anti-civilisation tendencies are separated from authoritarianism, conservatism and fascism by this regard, by the priority placed on rejecting any attack which has as a result indiscriminate loss of life and mass injuries for the base population. We presume these parameters are the “encrypted codes” which the Nihilist Sect of Free Death refers to in the communique below.
-

THE NIHILIST SECT OF FREE DEATH: OPENING UP AND CLAIMING OF INCENDIARY ATTACKS

“I teach you the Overman! He is that sea; in him your great contempt can go under.”

The Nihilist Sect of Free Death is based on the precise points of a project and experiment:

– The attack on society and its values, such as morality, ethics, equality, democracy, legality, law, etc.

– The rejection of all legal and juridical issues.

– The Nihilist Sect of Free Death is unique, and denies any pact of federation or association with other groups, even if they had “affinity” with the project.

– The Nihilist Sect of Free Death doesn’t make recourse to warning signals or “phone calls”, but any Attack carried out successfully or only attempted, will go under specific encrypted codes in order to avoid “confusion” as for all the judicial ethical body of society and everybody else who want to use it for their own “purposes”.

- Against so-called “heterogeneous” or generalized solidarity, which is bound to affect the specificity of the project.

– The Nihilist Sect of Free Death’s “own” claim in specific cases, such as the case where an individual who’s not part of the pact of association is indirectly involved in it under the form of imprisonment..

The die is cast…

PS: To begin the experiment, various incendiary attacks were successfully carried out against mobile objects in the mess of the metropolis called “Rome”.

Comrade Sadi Özpolat joins the hunger-strike in solidarity with prisoners in Greece against ‘Type C’ prisons (Germany)

July 19th, 2014

via RHI-SRI:

Besides Sadi Özpolat, Julihmet Düzgün Yuksel, Andreas Krebs, Oliver Rast, Thomas Meyer-Falk and Marco Camenisch are participating in the solidarity hunger strike for the Greek prisoners, from 18-20 July.

In a § 129b – trial [terrorist association] in the Regional Court of Dusseldorf in early 2012, Sadi Özpolat was sentenced to six years in prison. In Turkey, Sadi spent 17 years in jail. He participated in the 1996 death fast and at the beginning of the century, he was the spokesperson of the prisoners in the hunger-strike. In a battle against the introduction of isolation torture “made in Stammhein” in prisons [Stammhein is the prison where the imprisoned members of the Red Army Faction were murdered by the German State], that is going on for almost 7 years, in that time more than 120 people have died.

Death fast, in contrast to hunger strike, is ended only if a result is reached.

After his release in 2003 in Turkey, Sadi was arrested again in 2004. When he was released in 2008, he left Turkey and applied for asylum in France.

Sadi was arrested on 19 May 2010 in French Colmar due to a warrant by the German Attorney General, and in July 2010 he was delivered to the German authorities and sent to prison.

In Germany, Sadi did several hunger strikes to fight for better conditions.

Neben Sadi Özpolat beteiligt auch an dem Solidaritätshungerstreik für die griechischen Gefangenen vom 18-20. Julihmet Düzgün Yüksel, Andreas Krebs, Oliver Rast, Thomas Meyer-Falk und Marco Camenisch ist auch Sadi in den Soli-HS getreten.

In einem §129b – Prozess vor dem OLG Düsseldorf wurde Sadi Özpolat Anfang 2012 zu 6 Jahren Haft verurteilt. In der Türkei war Sadi insgesamt 17 Jahre im Knast. Er nahm am Todesfasten 1996 teil und war Anfang des Jahrhunderts Sprecher der hungerstreikenden Gefangenen. In einen bald 7 Jahre andauernden Kampf, der sich gegen die Einführung der Isolationsfolter „Made in Stammheim“ richtete, starben über 120 Menschen.

Todesfasten wird im Gegensatz zum Hungerstreik erst beendet, wenn ein Resultat erreicht ist.

Nach seiner Entlassung 2003 in der Türkei wurde Sadi 2004 erneut verhaftet. Als er wieder frei kam, reiste er 2008 aus der Türkei aus und stellte einen Asylantrag in Frankreich.

Sadi wurde am 19. Mai 2010 im französischen Colmar aufgrund eines Festnahmeersuchens der Bundesanwaltschaft festgenommen und im Juli 2010 nach Deutschland ausgewiesen und in den Knast gesteckt.

Er trat mehrere Male in der BRD in den Hungerstreik, um bessere Bedingungen zu erkämpfen.

Grigoris Sarafoudis and Giannis Naxakis found guilty of being anarchists (Greece)

July 18th, 2014

via actforfree:

In the terror court 17.7.14 for the robbery in Pyrgeto: Guilty, because they are anarchists!

Prosecutor : Trying the case of the robbery in Pyrgeto, Larissas, surpassed all limits and threw away every pretence in the Korydallos terror court. While he admitted during the hearing that there was no evidence of guilt concerning the accused comrades Grigoris Sarafoudis and Giannis Naxakis, because anyway guilt was implied in the indictment “You cannot ignore the fact that the defendants are related to the anti-authoritarian, anarchist movement”!

The TERROR COURT rejected the request for attenuating Grigoris Sarafoudis and imposed the same sentence as Giannis Naxakis with the following sentences:

- 10 years for robbery
- 6 years for participation in a terrorist organization (C.C.F.)
- 5 years for stealing a car
– 2 years for possession of guns.

After the merger, a total of 16 years imprisonment for each.

Revolutionary Struggle case: Strength to anarchist Nikos Maziotis, arrested in Athens on 16/7 (Greece)

July 17th, 2014

The State and the Capital are the only terrorists – Solidarity with N. Maziotis

via contrainfo:

In the evening of July 16th, 2014 comrades put up a solidarity banner at the gate of the Polytechnic School, on Patission Street, in response to the fact that Revolutionary Struggle member Nikos Maziotis was recaptured by police in central Athens.

Anarchist Nikos Maziotis, who was on the run for two years, was seriously wounded and arrested earlier today after a shootout with cops in Monastiraki. He was then transferred to the tightly-guarded Evangelismos hospital, where he remains hospitalized. According to his lawyer, the comrade’s life is out of danger.

From 22:30, dozens of anarchists gathered outside the hospital to demonstrate their solidarity with urban guerrilla fighter Nikos Maziotis. At about 23:30 the solidarity intervention was over, and an assembly was called for tomorrow, Thursday 17/7, at 19:30, in the Polytechnic School in Exarchia.

July 15th, 2014

Dear all,

We would like to present an interview the Anarchist Radio Berlin (aradio.blogsport.de) made with Bogdan, an activist from Rumania. The main topic is the recent 4th Forum against unnecessary imposed mega-projects, a network of major struggles against infrastructure, mining and fracking projects (in Europe and beyond). The last meeting took place in May in Rosia Montana, Rumania. The preparation, the subject of the involvement of political parties in such movements as well as the future perspective of this particular coordination are at the heart of the interview, but it also gives a quick overview of the development of the local struggle against the proposed biggest open-cast gold mining project in Europe.

You’ll find the audio (to listen online or download in different sizes) here:

Important clarification about the case of Jock Palfreeman (Bulgaria)

July 14th, 2014

We add a clarification about the case of Jock Palfreeman. The imprisoned comrade has not taken responsibility for the armed wounding /death of the fascists that attacked him and the Roma he was with during the ‘index offence’ for which he is imprisoned. We issue this transmission to clear any possible errors contained in the transmission of the following article, and to take our share of responsibility for this error:

http://325.nostate.net/?p=10800
*Jock in self-defense seriously injured two of his attackers, one fatally.*

http://interarma.info/en/2014/07/11/boulgaria-enhmervsh-gia-jock-palfreeman
*During the fight Jock injured one of the fascists and killed another one.*

According to his own statements, Jock Palfreeman took out a knife in self-defense against his aggressors, but he has never admitted stabbing anyone. … Some people who support him usually write descriptions like “Andrey Monov was stabbed and killed and Antoan Zahariev was injured,” or “two of his attackers were injured of whom one died later from his injuries” – not indicating who the stabber was…

Quelques réflexions sur la révolution Ukrainienne

July 14th, 2014

[Voici une lettre d’un ami anarchiste (il se trouve à Kiev). C’est supposé être une réponse à l’article que Crimethinc a publié en mars à propos de la révolution ukrainienne et à tous ceux qui proclament avidement que la révolution ukrainienne n’est qu’une affaire d’extrême droite. Note de 325.nostate.net]

Compagnons !

Je vous écris depuis l’Ukraine. J’ai beaucoup participé aux émeutes de Maidan et à différentes initiatives anarchistes pendant cette période. Je voudrais faire plusieurs remarques que je trouve importantes pour mieux pouvoir apprécier les événements. En général, je suis d’accord avec votre hypothèse, mais je veux souligner quelques détails qui montreront que la situation est moins noire. Read the rest of this entry »

Smash Pacifism – A Critical Analysis of Gandhi and King by Zig-Zag (Warrior Publications)

July 14th, 2014

Smash Pacifism zine – Warrior Publications

While the title of this writing is Smash Pacifism, it is not intended as a call to violence against pacifists. Rather, it symbolizes the need to resolutely challenge the doctrine of pacifism that is so routinely imposed on social movements and to break the monopoly on forms of struggle which reformist organizations presently hold. In this way, it is intended as a resource to be used in our organizing efforts alongside people who have accepted pacifist doctrine largely out of ignorance.

From Zig-Zag of Warrior Publications, the respected and militant First Nations comrade in struggle. An in-depth analysis of the pacifism of Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi, arguing that history shows that the positive legacy of these struggles were actually the result of a diversity of tactics, including armed resistance, revolts and riots.

The zine also includes interesting material about Bhagat Singh, Sikh militant and anarchist-communist who fought and died against the British regime in India as part of the anti-colonial struggle.

Promote warrior culture, fighting spirit and resistance movements!
