Video: Recordando al Companero Urubu (Argentina)

June 21st, 2015

Intentando siempre hacer aportes a la lucha anarquista, es que buscamos
rescatar y al mismo tiempo mantener intacta nuestra negra memoria, la
que nos habla de compañerxs, grupos, acciones, que de un modo u otro
determinan nuestro presente, pues nos consideramos continuidad
historica, con nuestras innovaciones y nuestro contexto actual, de una
lucha que no olvida ni traiciona.

En esta ocasión, y aunque la idea inicial era publicar este escrito el 6
de junio (fecha de la caida en combate del compañero), gustamos de
compartir un escrito recordando a Sergio Urubu Terensi, anarquista que
actuo en la región argentina. Read the rest of this entry »

‘SAMs for Uncle Sam’ – Chapter 3 of the book ‘Radical Peace: People Refusing War’ By William T. Hathaway (USA, Germany, Iraq)

June 19th, 2015

SAMs for Uncle Sam

Chapter 3 of the book
RADICAL PEACE: People Refusing War
By William T. Hathaway

Merna al-Marjan is a young Iraqi who is currently in Germany studying European history. We talked in her dormitory room, a spartan but functional cubicle in a building that embodies a hopeful change in European history: it was constructed in the nineteenth century as an army barracks but now houses university students. That’s progress.

On Merna’s small table sat a pot of peppermint tea and a plate of baklava. She’s short and plump with smooth skin the color of clover honey and deep anthracite eyes; she was wearing a long skirt of light cotton, a long-sleeved blouse, and a green paisley headscarf.

Hathaway: “Headscarves have become a controversial item of clothing here in Germany.”

Al-Marjan: “Yes, you can’t teach in the schools if you wear one. It’s OK for a teacher to wear a Christian crucifix but not a Muslim headscarf. I didn’t wear a hijab in Iraq, but I’ve started doing it here to show solidarity. It’s ridiculous to ban an article of clothing, a simple piece of cloth. What sort of freedom is that?

Communique about the end of the hunger strike from Nataly, Juan & Guillermo ($hile)

June 18th, 2015

To our brothers, comrades, relatives, loved ones and people in solidarity with us, to the public.

In 54/53 (Nataly / Juan, Guillermo) days from the beginning of our hunger strike, on Friday, June 5, we end our mobilization, which was a response to the repressive maneuvers power unleashed this time against us, against our emotional and solidarity environment. We decided to stand on our feet and to publicize our situation, without letting the designs of power to realized, which through legal/police/media/ suppressive tricks seeks to perpetuate isolation, silence and absolute submission. We decided to mobilize through a joint decision, a horizontal agreement, far from levels and hierarchies, which the lovers of power and the law seek to replicate in each and every group of people. It is the most dignified way of being in this world of bowed heads and prizes for any kind of boss.

“Schedule 7″ – Important Advice for Anarchists Travelling To/From the UK

June 18th, 2015

From Bristol Defendant Solidarity:

Police in the UK are allowed to question anyone entering/leaving the country about “terrorism” – without the right to silence. We have spoken to a number of anarchists who have been questioned under these powers, known as “Schedule 7″. Because of a lack of information on the law, most of those stopped have given more information than they had to. This includes people from outside of the UK who have not even heard of “Schedule 7″ before. For this reason, we strongly recommend any anarchists travelling to/from the UK read our briefing beforehand – http://bristolabc.wordpress.com/defendant-solidarity/resources-and-advice/schedule-7/.

If you have been questioned under “Schedule 7″, please contact the Network for Police Monitoring, so they can keep track of how the police are using this power. Website: http://netpol.org; Email: info (at) netpol.org

Lions of Rojava: American fighter Keith Broomfield “Gelhat Rumet” martyred in battle of Qentere (Kurdistan)

June 18th, 2015

A sad day for the Lions and sad day for humanity!

As you might have already heard through the media our YPG comrade and friend Keith Lewis Broomfield- Kurdish Nom de guerre Gelhat Rumet- of Massachusetts was martyred on June 3 in a battle in the Rojava village of Qentere in Kobane. He is a first American YPG fighter martyr from Rojava.

Keith joined the YPG on the 24th of February 2015. The brave American warrior came to Kobane because he could not lean back and watch the atrocity’s which were committed by ISIS. He felt very connected to the Kurdish people and was a very generous and freedom loving person. So one day our brave warrior Keith decided to make his way to Rojava and to join the fight with the YPG. He booked his flight from the United States and joined the cause.

Keith’s generosity could be seen in his visits to the refugee camp of Suruc and his desire to help the poor Children which are growing up in such a dangerous environment. Read the rest of this entry »

Also read: Toulouse, France: Summary of the arrests, convictions and sentences from recent ZAD demos.

An individual has been prosecuted who is suspected to be responsible for the publication of an article on IAATA.info, a collaborative and antiauthoritarian website in Toulouse. Informing people about police repression is a right and a necessity : that is why you find here a solidarity statement that denounces the criminalization and intimidation of the free independent media.

On Thursday March 7th, the corporate media announced that an individual from Toulouse was prosecuted by the State for a “public provocation to commit a crime or a felony”. S/he is alleged to be an “admin” of IAATA.info, an antiauthoritarian website based in Toulouse. Read the rest of this entry »

‘A New Hope’ by Voltairine de Cleyre

June 8th, 2015

The New Hope by V. de Cleyre (March 15th, 1893)

I stand in the darkness waiting
For the light of the truth to shine;
The faith that you preach has failed me,
And your God is no longer mine.

I have lifted my hands to heaven,
And besought him, with many a prayer,
To put down the evil doer
And destroy the unrighteous snare.

Report about the hungerstrike of Sadi Özpolat and Gülaferit Unsal (Germany)

June 7th, 2015

Here in Germany two communist prisoners from Turkey, who had been sentenced according to the “antiterror-paragraph §129b”, achieved victories by means of long hungerstrikes: Sadi Özpolat starved 43 days and Gülaferit Ünsal 54 days. They fought against censorship, prison clothing and intimidation. They didn’t fight in the prison alone. Together with Gülaferit 6 other prisoners starved as well in solidarity.

Taken from one of our speeches (“Network of all political prisoners”, Hamburg) in front of the Berlin prison, where Gülaferit is jailed: (29.5.2015)

“This is a draconic assault to all prisoners. More than 100 yearly commit suicide, living under similar conditions as Gülaferit, without any hope and unwilling to vegetate isolated anymore.”

9 political prisoners of armed groups like RAF, who organised collective resistance against such conditions, didn’t survive in prison in the seventies and eighties.

War against ISIS/Daesh: The Reconstruction of Kobane – Thoughts of a Kurdish Anarchist (Kurdistan)

June 6th, 2015



By Zaher Baher
Haringey Solidarity Group and Kurdistan Anarchists Forum
June 3, 2015

First of all, I should mention a couple of issues in Kurdistan of Turkey (Bakur) that are strongly connected to the subject. Between 08/05 and 22/05/15 I visited a number of big towns in Bakur, including: Amed (Diyarbakir), Van, Colemerge (Hakari) and Gavar. Later I returned to Suruc and was hoping to cross the border to Kobane.

My main purpose for visiting there were three important points: First: understanding the similarity and differences between the Democratic Self Administration (DSA) in Bakur and Rojava. Second: Reconstruction of Kobane, and Third: the type of economy that Rojava can have in the future. Although the friends in Peoples Democratic Party (HDP), other organisations and the Working Committees of Rojava in Amed and Suruc tried hard to arrange my trip to Kobane but it did not happen.

Three of the five anarchist prisoners of Operación Piñata released + 13 June day of solidarity demo in Barcelona (Catalunya, Spain)

June 6th, 2015

On June 1 we got the great news that three of the five comrades being held in preventive detention, accused of being part of a terrorist group under Operation Piñata (including one who was already arrested and imprisoned in Operation Pandora) are being released without bail. They still have all their charges and have to sign in frequently at court, and two of them are prohibited from leaving the country.

Operation Pandora was launched in December in Catalunya, and Operation Piñata on March 30 all across the Spanish state but focused in Madrid. The operations resulted in the arrests of 26 anarchist comrades (plus the arrests of over a dozen more for resisting the raid on a social center) on anti-terrorism charges, the raids of dozens of houses and social centers, the theft of cash, and the seizure of computers, harddrives, phones, etc.

In his brief political statement, Xiros expressed his views and called on the examining magistrate Eftihis Nikopoulos and everyone that he works for to apologize themselves.

Part of his statement read: “I have nothing to say to mechanisms that support the occupation forces and their local collaborators. You and those you serve should apologize to the people and history.”
