Some thoughts on the Ukrainian revolution

June 27th, 2014

Here’s a letter from an anarchist friend (he’s in Kiev). It’s supposed to be a reply to Crimethinc’s recent article on Ukrainian revolution and to everyone who so eagerly claims Ukrainian revolution to be a right-wing only affair. Hope you enjoy.

-

Comrades!
I’m writing to you from Ukraine. I participated a lot in Maidan riots and different anarchist initiatives during that time and want to make several comments that I find to be important for a better understanding of events. In general I agree with your hypothesis’, but I want to emphasize several details which will make the picture not so dark.

To start with, nationalists and fascists took over the forefront of the confrontations only in the media image of Maidan. They have no real control over activities of protesters, but they controlled the scene of Maidan and the fascination of the mainstream medias.

Fascists from “Right Sector” and other organizations had a control only over their members. And it is very remarkable to emphasize that their organizational structures hadn’t been very hierarchical. Groups among them were decentralized. Read the rest of this entry »

Statement on the confrontation in Ukraine

June 27th, 2014

In the ongoing conflict, we support neither Ukrainian government nor pro-Russian factions that established their authority on the portion of Luhansk and Donetsk oblasts. The working class (i.e. everyone who has neither power nor capital) is equally alien both to the concept of ​​unitary Ukraine and to the ideas of ​​”federalization” or creation of new states — these are merely the games of politicians, drawing blood from ordinary people. We, the left and the anarchists, should primarily adhere to the needs of the working class in the war-torn regions of Ukraine, protect their rights and freedoms.

Against LPR and DPR!

Donetsk and Luhansk “people’s republics” are a collection of warring right-wing juntas. Rights and freedoms, which are granted to the rest of Ukraine, are not available in the territories under their control.
Public manifestation of political dissent is not possible there; worker rights activists who criticized DPR were kidnapped and tortured. Upon preservation of these regimes the working class will be completely deprived of any opportunity to defend their legal rights. The only possible form of the “left” activity in DPR and LPR is the ritual worship of Soviet symbols, which has nothing to do with the workers’ interests. Read the rest of this entry »

Message of Olga Economidou, CCF: Imprisoned Members Cell, about her participation in the hunger strike against maximum security prisons (Greece)

June 27th, 2014

Inter Arma received and translated:

There are two cases of people in this world. The ones who voluntarily let their life be wasted passively inside locked days, one after another, and the ones who dream with their eyes open and want to destroy all the world’s locks that cage our life behind bars, inside walls, in habits, rules, laws… Do not look for us in the first group…. Since today, Wednesday 25th of July, I participate in the hunger strike against the functioning of Domokos’ Guantanamo.

Solidarity to anarchist Aleksandr Kolchenko, detained on terror charges! (Crimea)

June 27th, 2014

Aleksandr Kolchenko was detained in Crimea on the 17th of May 2014 on suspicion of participation in a “terrorist group,” preparation of a terrorist attack, and arson.

He is suspected of having participated in a “terrorist group” which planned explosions near the eternal fire memorial and the Lenin monument in Simferopol on the 8th and 9th of May, and of having sabotaged railway tracks and electricity lines. Kolchenko is also suspected of having carried out two arson attacks: against the headquarters of the Russian Unity-party and Russian Community of Crimea on the 14th of April, and the office of the United Russia party in Simferopol on the 18th of April. He has since been transferred to Moscow and is being kept in the Lefortovo remand prison. The case is run by the FSB, the former KGB.

Aleksandr is an anarchist and antifascist who has participated in student and environmental actions. He has been part of campaigns against tuition fees and supported workers’ rights protests. He was under constant Nazi attack for his antifascist ideas. One incident took place after a film screening about murdered anti-fascist journalist Anastasiya Baburova, where he was attacked by thirty Nazis using knives. In this context, claims by the Russian authorities that Aleksandr is part of the nationalist “Right Sector” are ridiculous, and he is denying these claims. Read the rest of this entry »

25 July: International Day of Solidarity With Antifascist Prisoner Jock Palfreeman (Bulgaria)

June 26th, 2014

A Day of Solidarity With Antifascist Prisoner Jock Palfreeman

(Bulgarian translation below)

Who is Jock Palfreeman?

Jock Palfreeman is an Australian serving a 20-year sentence in Bulgaria. In 2007 he was travelling in Bulgaria when he defended two Roma men being attacked by soccer hooligans; in the ensuing fight, one of the attackers was killed under unclear circumstances. After a biased trial, Jock was convicted of murder, and the Bulgarian authorities refuse to transfer him from the notoriously run-down prison he is held in to Australia, without paying a huge fine. While in prison, Jock helped form the Bulgarian Prisoners Union, and has been beaten by guards in retaliation for his activism. Read the rest of this entry »

London: Anti-fascists organise against Neo-Nazi violence in Tottenham (UK)

June 25th, 2014



Check out: inthebellyofthebeast & anti-fascistnetwork:

On Saturday a group of Polish neo-Nazis from the group Zjednoczeni Emigranci (ZE – United Immigrants) attacked the small ‘Music Day’ festival in Markfield Park in Tottenham, North London assaulting a Jewish man and stabbing another Polish man. This pre-planned and unprovoked attack on a family music festival was carried out by a group of about 40 fascists and involved throwing glass bottles, stones and flares. Several other people were injured.

The individual who was stabbed purely through luck suffered only superficial injuries. One member of ZE has been arrested for religiously aggravated common assault in connection with the assault against a Jewish man.

After the end of the leftist ineffective & passive UAF rally, a group of around 100 led by the Polish anti-fascist group Dywizjon 161 marched up Tottenham High Road to Markfield Park and removed ZE graffiti and stickers throughout the area, replacing it with anti-fascist stickers and messages.

Chronology of Resistance in Rembang City, Jawa Tengah: Street and community conflict against military & police in struggle against the construction of a cement factory (Indonesia)

June 25th, 2014

This is a news report from one of our comrades in Rembang City, Jawa Tengah.

People in Rembang City in Jawa Tengah, Indonesia make a protest because the company PT. Semen Indonesia will build a factory in Rembang City. Why the farmers and people protest to that capitalism is because Jaringan Masyarakat peduli Pegunungan Kendeng (JMPPK) and Semarang Caver Association [farming and local community groups in Rembang City] found 109 springs, fountains or wells, as well as 49 caves and 4 underground rivers that make a great amount of pure water there.

And this is different news from Analisa Dampak Lingkungan (AMDAL) which is an organisation, or an ‘Non-Government Organisation’ that is a bullshit organisation that belongs to the government and PT. Semen Indonesia. They say they only found 20 fountains.

If PT. Semen Indonesia still make their factory and cement production in Rembang City, it will destroy nature and the water supply in Rembang City, because that water is directly produced from Watuputih mountain.

That’s why we must boycott PT. Semen Indonesia and AMDAL.

Prigioni Greche: Prigionieri in lotta annunciano lo sciopero della fame di massa

June 25th, 2014


ANNUNCIO DI SCIOPERO DELLA FAME

Dal 18 giugno 2014 tutti i prigionieri in Grecia hanno fatto lo sciopero del carrello in segno di protesta contro il disegno di legge fascista sulle carceri di tipo C) e in difesa del diritto al permesso temporaneo e alla concessione di libertà condizionale.

Tuttavia, il ministro di Giustizia e il governo insistono a ignorare la nostra protesta. Non hanno risposto assolutamente alle nostre giuste richieste e in modo provocatorio tendono ad approvare il disegno di legge nella sessione parlamentare estiva, per tentare di impedire la reazione popolare.

Contro questo disegno di legge che ci condanna a rimanere prigionieri per sempre senza diritti o speranza poniamo i nostri corpi e spiriti come scudi. Questo è la sola cosa che ci è rimasta. Read the rest of this entry »

Solidarity with Greek Prisoners – Text and Photo (Zurich)

June 23rd, 2014

Above: Photo of solidarity from Zürich – Against FIFA and solidarity with the struggle of Greek prisoners.

325 receives and transmits the following:

Against high security prisons

Immediately, after the government reshuffle and the flagrantly closing sessions of the Parliament, the political staff of the local and international capital, gives priority to the voting of the bill for creating high security prisons during the summer sessions of the Parliament. The bill will be submitted for debate on the 17th of June.

The proposed legislation proposes the creation of 3 types of prisons with escalating repression. The debts prisoners will be kept in the “milder” wings called wings Type A. The majority of the prisoners will be “stored” in wings Type B under terrible conditions. Simultaneously, wings Type C are being created for prisoners belonging to the category of “special and prominent danger”.

The target of this bill are the anarchists and the communists, who were imprisoned for their political actions, the undisciplined prisoners, namely those who fight against the cruel reality of imprisonment and finally the prisoners accused for organized crime. Read the rest of this entry »

Prisoners in struggle announce mass hunger strike (Greece)

June 23rd, 2014

Some news from the Greek prisons: Here there is a big mobilization in almost all Greek prisons against a new law they want to pass for making ‘Type C’ maximum security prisons.

So now the prisoners deny to get in at the noon lockdown, refuse to take the prison food and from Monday 23/6 there is going to start a refusal of prison work and a massive hunger strike in almost all prisons.

May health and chaos be within you!

Contra Info publishes the following statement from Greek prisoners announcing mass hunger strike:

ANNOUNCEMENT OF HUNGER STRIKE

From June 18th, 2014, prisoners in all Greek prisons have abstained from prison meals as a way of protest against the fascist bill for type C prisons, and in defense of the right to furlough and release on parole.

However the minister of Justice and the government insist on ignoring our protest. They have not responded in any way to our just demands, and provocatively aim to pass the bill in summer sessions of the parliament, in their attempt to prevent people’s reaction. Read the rest of this entry »

Letter from Nikos Romanos – “The question of dignity” (Greece)

June 12th, 2014

“And one day I will tell you how much I loved you, but you will have to find me personally.

Like the executioner… I watered the roses of compassion in their sleep I, an ill man by belief, a genius of  misery (who blew his brains out once for a better era) and maybe our tears go further than dreams.

As it got dark I had to find all my innocence again in order for the stars to be there on time.

And usually we kill the present with fear or guilt but mostly with dreams.

Tasos Livaditis

The purpose of this text is to build bridges of communication with all comrades who maintain the choice of  destruction, to give life to my thoughts and contemplations which through these lines travel and meet with  people like me who believe that only through continuous struggle can we win back our lives on our own terms.

A continuous struggle expressed in a thousand different ways directed to one cause.

With enraged voices and clashes in the protests, pen and paper on which are written dangerous thoughts, discussions and confidences with which life relations are built, weapons, bombs and fire which avenge a whole world that threw us into the void.

A desperate journey of freedom with comrades, the stubbornness and “craziness” of all those who decided  to risk and walk against the possibilities, conquering their own fate.

Phoenix Project #14: ‘Live Wires FAI/ELF’ take responsibility for 4 Arsons against Bristol’s cellular transmission infrastructure over 24 Hours (UK)

June 11th, 2014

325 receives and transmits this communique released on the June 11th International Day of Solidarity for Marie Mason, Eric McDavid and all long-term anarchist prisoners:

[Phoenix Project]

Around Bristol between June 9th-10th, we left 7 mobile phone antennae in flames. Daily continuation of capitalist society is dependent on uninterrupted flows (of goods, people, data, and energy) and the communications grid is no exception. The limited uses most of us can make from these flows only mask the way they are mainly used to oversee and impose the dominant order, and increase its’ reach and control.

You need only look to how the values of connectivity, speed, and mobility that are embodied in a mobile phone (for example) facilitate a relentless consumer culture and the requirement to be available and flexible at all times: as much for the benefit of the boss and the advertiser as for your family or friends. This is fully consistent with the modern restructuring and decentralisation of the gigantic productive system which this society subjects us to. Hindering all this was our objective.

2 antennae went up simultaneously, in Hambrook and outside Ram Hill business park in Coalpit Heath, both owned by O2. This is also not the first time O2 have been singled out for damage acts because of the contracts they hold in the migrant detention industry, with cops, and tagging for the probation service. Some hours later a 3rd O2 antenna went up in Coombe Dingle, at the same time as a 4th fire was lit after gaining access to transmission units connected to the huge BT telecommunication tower in Lockleaze. Signals that will have been affected are those of O2, T-Mobile, Orange and Vodaphone.

These corporations variously are connected to the field of military equipment and armament, use prison labour, and are famous for readily collaborating with electronic policing by the secret services (now that widespread data-surveillance is well known) while not even stopping at financing Oxford university with its’ extensive animal experimentation labs. This has already led to their interests being attacked in Berlin (T-Mobile’s parent company*), Paris (Orange*), and Banbury (Vodaphone*).

For all above reasons it is always good to harm these corporations, structurally and economically, and then there is the issue of the antennae themselves radiating who knows how much harmfulness to nearby species. There were the publicised cases in Bristol even some years ago of a woman in Shirehampton who complained of the affects of an antenna put up on her high rise flatblock and later died from a brain tumor, while an antenna nicknamed The Tower of Doom was withdrawn from Staple Hill after cancer rates soared. Evidence has mounted up that prolonged use of mobile phones damages the immune system, decreases fertility, and causes brain tumors and cancers: especially in the young. We should mention that the antenna we burned in Coombe Dingle is one of three on the grounds of a university sports pitch also marketed for schools, as are many others. Additionally, twisted lab technicians claim to have deduced from experimentation on other mammals (built on torture like so much scientific research) that exposure while still in the womb “significantly damages brain function, structure and behaviour and suggested that these exposures could contribute to children’s behavioural disorders”.

These products were and still are pushed on us as harmless, although nearly every study that claims this was funded by the industry itself, when we had no idea of the long term affects, similarly to the marketing of asbestos or smoking before they began to show their deadly toll (to use only 2 better known examples among thousands). These days even researchers at Bristol university concede the dangers of cellular use. What a surprise….the permanently wired environment turns out to be toxic, while companies make a killing in profits and the government receives billions in taxes and licensing. For most people prolonged contact with mobile phones or wireless networks in general seems unavoidable, for work or to avoid social marginalisation, in the street, on public transport, or at home: we are soaking in one more accumulative barrage in a poisonous, anti-human and anti-life civilisation that grows by the day.

A recurring feature of the estrangement that technologies such as mobile phones actually cultivate between individuals, is how many addicted to their constant use now prefer to text message or to “tweet” to avoid the prospect of real life contact, and how many only feel safe communicating from behind a device. It is now completely standard for people to spend the majority of their waking hours interfacing with one screen or another. Up and coming inventions such as Google Glass attempt to make this enclosure near total (although also dependent in part on uninterrupted transmission infrastructure). As a society that lives through highly complex technologies, we no longer fully inhabit our bodies and environment but instead some part of the techno-hive: and it is no longer only nerds and the young who practically call this virtual reality their home. As the sphere dominated by information technology expands, what is considered socially of importance in our actual lives shrinks to what can be conveyed and received by the device, and so narrowing human emotion and experience. Or think about the obsessive urge to treat modern life as something less to be lived than to be documented in each detail for passive consumption on the “social” networks, as another example of colonisation by capitalism and its’ technology.

Planning and carrying out your existence digitally also allows the possibilities of unprecedented surveillance, and it hinders active rebellion or even questioning of the dominant order by flagging up “abnormalities” in what you often voluntarily share with your friends or “Friends.” At the same time, concerted exploitation of the base populations around the world and ecological pillage to the point of collapse continues to fatten the same rich parasites’ pockets, and technological immersion helps people neither relate nor care. On the contrary millions now hunger for their part in the way of life that is killing everything.

With an anarchist perspective in search of free and fulfilling existence, we fight to do away with all technologies born from the toxification and slavery of mines, factories, and industrial infrastructures, and for our daily communication to be as unmediated as possible. Taking down these few nodes was not enough for us, it is not a case of simply abandoning the uses of a particular device alone, but it is erasing the whole social system which first trapped us in its’ “necessity” which is the challenge. We found antennae an easy way to start: it is simply a matter of burning tires between the exposed cables and away you go. In North Lanarkshire, Scottish villagers even felled one. By reflecting on radical and anti-industrial history in Britain (such as the Swing and Luddite insurrections), as well as contemporary anarchist guerrilla praxis, we can see the advantage of low-tech, cheap, and easily reproducible tactics to wreck machinery that encloses and impoverishes us, on an even more intimate level presently than ever before. These ubiquitous (and highly expensive) structures are spread around every town or city and further industrialising the countryside, where they are sometimes painted green in the attempt to camouflage them: and disgustingly even have bird and bat nesting boxes mounted on some. Their guardians cannot always be watching them all so it is up to our ingenuity to remain a step ahead and stretch their forces thin. This and every network has its’ weak points, in these cracks in the architecture of control that afford us leverage: a destructive capacity we are appropriating. As the promises of hyper-technified modern culture continue to show their shallowness, rebels will carry on acting against the noxious installations and the way of life they feed.

“….Resistance against the Technological-Industrial Machine lives only through the path of liberation from every power and order, runs towards an event horizon where nothing has been written yet.”
– Letter from Gianluca Iacovacci, from C.R. San Michele prison

Our attack is not separate from overall anarchist subversion by all means, which naturally includes solidarity with our prisoners in enemy hands. A wild greeting from Bristol to Adriano Antonacci, no less than to his friend and comrade Gianluca (FAI/IRF Subversive Anti-Civilisation Individualities) whose brave lone acts in Rome he is also accused of. Hello to the new anarchist and anti-colonial groups in Hong Kong and Australia, and solidarity to the Paris ten accused of sabotaging prison profiteers.

Our attack came at a time when the networks are already set to be overloaded by the World Cup hysteria, to show our complicity with the insurgent fighters in Brazil as they answer massive dispossession and militarised slum clearances for the opulence of the games with street battles and arson. Because it should be remembered that the enthralling spectacle, that is staged to make the rich yet more money and to distract us from our daily humiliations, is based on the State and Capital’s violence against resisters, the indigenous, and the poorest in Brazilian society.

Let’s not forget Marie Mason and Eric McDavid: both are still behind bars after State repression and entrapment which followed an early string of Earth Liberation Front strikes in the USA. Years later the earth liberation struggle is not defeated either in spirit or in practice. The fight goes on with fur farms raided and emptied across North America, and our incendiary-minded sisters or brothers prowling the besieged Turkish forests, the streets of the Costa Rican metropolis, or the techno-industrial developments in Switzerland (on the last note: a quick reminder that the continuing legal threats against the released anarchists Silvia, Costas and Billy, and also the latest vindictive treatment of Marco Camenisch around his prison transfer, have not gone unnoticed by the international fire-starters).

Down with the society based on dominating earth and all its’ creatures.

Live Wires FAI/ELF

Statement by Andreas Tsavdaridis in the trial about the case of “Phoenix” Project (Greece)

June 8th, 2014

Inter Arma received and translated:

One and a half months after my arrest, I made a public statement claiming responsibility for the shipping of a parcel bomb to the former chief of the counter-terrorism agency. In this action there are no instigators. I acted alone, based on my values and none of my comrades, who are being trialed with me today, took part in it. Lastly, I want to send my solidarity to all the imprisoned anarchists of the Informal Anarchist Federation.
