“Tattoo” by Landeg White

November 14th, 2012

This poem is released for the date of the combative November 14 2012 general strike called for the entire southern european area. This is a general strike that has heard a specific call to go beyond simply one day of refusal, towards an entire rejection of the manufactured crisis of capitalism. For insurrection and the destruction of the existent.

(to the sound of Greek bagpipes)

Today, the Greek Government
executed by firing squad
1000 pensioners, along
with 2000 workers, as part
of a package of financial
reforms, to reassure
the markets and permit
the Troika to release one
more tranch of the bail-out.

How one feels for the victims
In all this, the bankers
criminalised, shorn
of bonuses, the markets
bearish, nervous as
kittens, the green back,
the pound, the tsunami
floating yen, scurrying
between time-sealed

vaults and safe-havens,
exposed to the sniping
of credit default swaps
as Molotov cocktails
rain down relentlessly
from Fitch’s, Moody’s,
and S.& P.’s. Will
the friendly Troika
contrive fresh reforms?

Will our young friend,
the euro, be vaporised?
Growth is a must, come
what may, be it 3000
health workers hung,
drawn and quartered,
4000 firemen burned
at the stake, even
the odd politician garrotted.

International Conspiracy for Revenge – FAI/IRF takes responsibility for arson of a school in Manado (Indonesia)

November 14th, 2012

School burns during the week of solidarity action for Eat and Billy, called by the International Conspiracy for Revenge.

325 receives and transmits:

On 11 of November 2012, covered by the night and with desires of revolutionary solidarity to the imprisoned anarchists from around the world, we burnt one state elementary school in Paniki, Manado. We salute our action to all of our brothers and sisters from Informal Anarchist FederationInternational Revolutionary Front (FAI – IRF).

Maybe, many of the comrades will be asking why we put a fire in a school? It’s a simple answer.

First, school is a prison. And there’s no other excuse to defend the school and write it out from the list of targets of revolutionary actions. In school, we can’t learn about freedom, bravery, uniqueness and revolutionary solidarity. We learn nothing but the situation of society that imposes on our dignity as a human being.

ICR – FAI/FRI issue an International Call for Direct Action (Indonesia)

November 8th, 2012

325 receives and transmits:

Dear comrades and companerxs of Informal Anarchist FederationInternational Revolutionary Front (FAI – IRF) from around the world, to all the rebels who still rise against the power, society and eco-disaster.

We, the International Conspiracy for Revenge, Indonesian section of FAI-IRF want to make an international call of direct action against all property and symbols of society, eco-destroyers, fascists, military and our enemies. This international call in the beginning is to remember the abduction of our two brothers from Long Live Luciano Tortuga Cell – FAI Indonesia, Eat and Billy, by the state one year ago. One year of kidnap and harassment of revolutionary action done by our brothers. And not to forget to mention, the fugitive member of Long Live Luciano Tortuga Cell, K, who is still underground and hunted by power.

But in essence, our action will be dedicated to all the rebels and revolutionaries who never step back, eating their words, and who never want to wash their hands by the sale of another revolutionary name to protect their comfort zones.

We want to call our sisters and brothers in arms from all the cells of FAI-IRF to refresh our revolutionary memories. That until today, we haven’t forgotten and will never forget our sisters and brothers who are kidnapped and seized behind bars by the state. Eat and Billy are only a small piece in a wave of repression that always faced the rise of insurrectionary desires around the circles of FAI-IRF. Action always speaks louder than words.

For one week, starting from today, we want to send our revolutionary greetings for Eat and Billy and other rebels (proud and revolutionary members of CCF and Revolutionary Struggle, Luciano Tortuga Pitronello, Mario Tripa Lopez, Marco Camenisch, Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Theofilos Mavropoulos, Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai, Marcelo, Juan and Fredy, Ivan Silva and Carla Verdugo, anarchist prisoners of operations in Italia and many more revolutionary names) that must be remembered and mentioned in our hearts through action.

See you in the street, covered by the night through the fires against power and society.

For anarchy
For Black International
For our sisters and brothers

Prisoners shouted back from their cell windows and there was a big feeling of rage outside and inside meeting in shouts of ACAB and cheers as fireworks banged and whizzed. The fireworks got let off, there was some shouts back and forth then the motley crew disappeared before any cops showed up. Read the rest of this entry »

November 7th, 2012

325 receives and transmits:

“Remember, remember
The fifth of November
The gunpowder treason and plot.
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.”

(V for Vendetta)

Last night (Monday, 5 November 2012), we placed a small explosive package.
We put it in front of Red Monkey Karaoke’s pub in Manado. We did it as a small gesture of a solidarity to all the rebels in Papua who were shot by the Indonesian military, to the people in Philippines who stand up against the eco-disaster of mega project of SMI-Xstrata, to the rebels in Greece squats who faced the eviction and were kidnapped by the state, to the anti-fascist fighters around the world who stand up against discrimination and terror.

Solidarity with the struggling people in Greece from Hamburg (Germany)

November 4th, 2012

For the last half a year the solidarity with the people and comrades in Greece who struggle against the System and the results of the capitalist crisis was increasing. Especially in the situation of having the winners of the crisis all around you, its sometimes not easy to find out where to start. In general a big part of society in Germany is not getting what the consequences of the crisis – the cuts – mean for the lives of people in Greece. As ‘Winners’ and playing a leading role in the crisis you don’t feel it financially as well as economically here. Besides benefits for imprisoned comrades and solidarity-activities like letter-writing to prisoners and manifestations there were more discussions about the crisis as well as the situation in Greece and our stand towards it. As one result comrades decided to show their revolutionary solidarity in attacking the reality around here, too. In different cities attacks for the prisoners as well as attacks against the banks and profiteers of crisis have been taking place.

Some attacks in solidarity with the struggles in Greece happened in Hamburg:

2012

27 & 28 February – 6 banks attacked in solidarity with the struggling and striking people in Greece

3 May – “Telecom” parking-lots visited and company cars torched. Telekom is a crisis winner and joint-owner of Greek telefone company OTE. Also Telekom is with their businesses an example for the increasing civil-military cooperation.

23 August – “Telekom” building smashed and painted.

25 August – An illegal street/neigbourhood-fest in solidarity with the struggles in Greece. Banners, discussions and information given out among the thousands of visitors. In the evening some fire and banks lost their windows.

Indonesian “anti-terror” police open fire against demo of independence activists (West Papua)

November 4th, 2012

On the 23 of October 2012 a peaceful demonstration was held for four hours in Manokwari, (without police permission) in front of the UNIPA campus. Several hundred people took part. The demonstrators were calling for a referendum on West Papuan independence and were carrying the Morning Star Flag. They reject the fake “dialogue” of the murderous Indonesian state. Following the demonstration the participants walked to the Darul Anum Mosque where speeches were made. The security forces fired shots in order to try to force the demonstrators to stop when they began to throw stones at their frontlines. At least 4 were hit by gunshots amongst the 18 or more injured demonstrators and two police officers were hit by stones and hospitalised. The demonstration was tightly surrounded (in a “kettle”) by police security forces, supported by detachment C of Brimob [The "elite" police force-death squad intended to deal with so-called "terrorists"].

Ghanaian Detainees Statement – Death of Prince Ofosu (UK)

November 4th, 2012

We are presenting this information from Harmondsworth Immigration Removal Centre, regarding the death of Prince Ofosu, a detainee aged 31 years.

What we do know about the death of Prince Ofosu, the Ghanaian detainee who died on Tuesday 30th October, 2012 is as follows:

1. Prince Ofosu was forcibly restrained by GEO officers employed by the UKBA.

2. We understand that Prince Ofosu sustained some injuries. The GEO officer, Jim by name who inflicted massive blows on prince Ofosu had some blood stains on his uniform, but he was asked to remove the blood stained clothes so that no one would notice what happened. His clothes were changed for him. That happened in a room known as “block” [rule 40]. Read the rest of this entry »

Tver: ‘Wild Hogs, ALF-FAI’ sabotage a hunt with various actions (Russia)

November 1st, 2012

325 receives and transmits:

28-29 October 2012

Russia, Tver. ALF torch electricity station and sabotage a hunt. Some words of solidarity with imprisoned eco-anarchist comrades

We send our fiery greetings to anarchist comrades in prison: Yana Terenina and Aleksandra Dukhanina. We take this opportunity to remind about Yana Terenina and her fate. She was put to prison after an incident near the “Atrium” shopping mall in Moscow. A fight broke out between Yana and a lady enamored with furry coats. During the fight lady’s husband chose to join the action, while the lady herself used scissors as a weapon. After the trial judge decided Yana and her friend Maksim fitted “armed robbery” charges. The fur-enamored lady rejected all offers of peaceful resolution of conflict.

Aleksandra Dukhanina is awaiting trial in regards with public disobedience during mass protests of 06/05/2012, when police forces provoked violence.

In the night of October 28-29 we destroyed a power substation that gave power to a hunting resort under Tver. We used bolt-cutters to cut through locks and gain access to the station’s interior. We planted two incendiaries (5l of gasoline each) and set the fuse on fire, retreating into the woods.

While moving through the forest we kept encountering hunting parties with dogs. We did our best to avoid them. Then we happened upon a hunting decoy (feeding facility for boars and elks). We vandalized it at first, but after a brief discussion decided to torch it to the ground. Soon the place was sound ablaze.

Cardiff: Timeline of anti-deportation resistance in support of the Saleh family (UK)

October 31st, 2012

Update : Contrary to what the article states, and popular presumption, the family were in fact deported on the 8am flight. The son was beaten up twice on the flight to try to subdue his defiance. The daughter, Shroukie, is left in the UK separated from her family. Solidarity with the Saleh family and all migrants who fight for their dignity and freedom. No Borders – No Nations – Stop Deportations!

The Saleh family, Mr S and her two children, arrived in the UK in November 2007 after suffering 15 years of violence in Egypt. The whole family is now under serious threat of honour-based violence and possibly even death. They had a court hearing on 13th November to receive a fair hearing of their case, but this was completely ignored by UKBA.

The first attempt to deport the family was on the morning Thursday 18th October, which resulted in the family’s home being raided by UKBA officers in Cardiff and two activists being arrested for ‘obstructing UKBA officers’, one of which additionally charged with ‘obstruct pc’. While a call-out was made for supporters to attend Cardiff Bay police station, where the family were taken in order to be transfered to a coach for a flight later that day in London, others made their way to the motorway sliproad. What followed was an attempt to run down activists blockading the road. Read the rest of this entry »

Communique for the bombing of the police department in Ramenskoe (Russia)

October 26th, 2012

325 receives and transmits:

In the night of 24/10 we activated timed bomb near the police department of Ramenskoe town. We didn’t use iron bolts in the manufacturing of the device since the building is situated in a densely populated area.

This was our action of such kind. And of course not everything went according to the plan, but we promise to educate ourselves and attain new levels of excellence in this mastery.

We dedicate this action to all anarchists taken hostages by the states throughout the world, those either in prison or on the run. To all those, who act outside the liberal concept of law and order, whose hearts beat in harmony with ours. We don’t want to use terms like “comrades” or “co-conspirators”. Everyone who had made the choice of insurrectionary action became our brother (or sister).

Not a step back! No surrender! We meet you on the barricades.

- Autonomous cell “Silver bullets for police werewolves” of CCF RUSSIA

P.S. Unfortunately, we had to improvise a bit since during the action it turned out that we were placing the bomb next to police guard dog. It kept asking us to spare its life, so we had to place the bomb a bit further away.

Translator’s Note: “Police werewolves” is a term widely-used in Russia to describe criminal pigs in uniform.

14 November 2012: International call to general strike

October 25th, 2012

There will be a general strike in the southern countries of Europe. The uncontrollables want to make it spread and go global. Fire and barricades in the streets and the police and bosses put on the run. Here is the call.

325 receives and transmits via tarcoteca:

In the current context it is meaningless to stop working for only a single day. State and companies are capable to absorb its effects and make it harmful to workers that support the strike. The only solution in sight is a permanent and active general strike. But in this globalized world the response must be global. Single acts in a country don’t have effects in the market economy. Similar situations in hundreds of countries allow the coordination. As simple as establishing a common date, 14-N. Read the rest of this entry »

Haris Hatzimichelakis: Never Again Unarmed (Greece)

October 23rd, 2012

From thisisourjob:

POLITICAL STATEMENT OF HARIS HATZIMICHELAKIS

To begin with, I must make it clear that I consider this trial to be yet another theater of war, and the present political statement—because this is a political statement and not an apologia—is yet another act of enmity stemming from the camp of revolutionary forces. I have already taken responsibility for membership in the Fire Cells Conspiracy Revolutionary Organization. Therefore, as a proud member of the Fire Cells Conspiracy, but also as a revolutionary and an anarchist, I view the occasion for my “apologia” as a forum in which to spread revolutionary discourse and explain my political positions regarding revolutionary war.

Brussels – Top executive ExxonMobil Nicholas Mockford shot dead (Belgium)

October 23rd, 2012

From Suie & Cendres:

BRUSSELS – Sunday night a top executive of the petro-chemical company ExxonMobil was shot dead in the street in Neder-over-Heembeek, near Brussels. Nicholas Mockford was shot in the head twice, when he and his wife were leaving an Italian restaurant around 22h. Witnesses saw two men running away carrying a motorcycle helmet.
The man died on the way to the hospital. His wife Mary was beaten and covered in blood. Police and DA’s office are saying that at this point they aren’t excluding any possibilities, from a hit to a carjacking gone wrong. Although the violence used appears to be disproportionate for a carjacking, especially knowing that the killers left the Lexus ATV behind.
Investigators are doing everything they can to locate the perpetrators. They are going through his work at his firm in the hope of finding a clue. ExxonMobil is the company that owns Esso, Mobil and Exxon gas stations.
