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.

Updates on Nicola and Alfredo, accused of shooting CEO Roberto Adinolfi (Italy)

October 23rd, 2012

From informa-azione via act for freedom now/B.pd:

[19/10/2012]

UPDATES ON ALFREDO AND NICOLA
A month after they were arrested, the comrades are still being held in solitary confinement in the prison of Sanremo. They are inflicted body searches and cell searches every day. They cannot communicate with each other or with other prisoners, and they spend the only hour outside the cell in a very small space with a net on the ceiling instead of bars at the windows. Their mail is submitted to censorship (letters to them are examined by the jailers and are delivered after 10/15 days), and if some letters are seized the comrades are not told about it. They can keep only 10 books in the cell and cannot be sent others by mail. This short note just explains the situation in the prison of Sanremo.
Solidarity to all the comrades kidnapped by the state.
To break isolation and cages, here is the address of the comrades:

Nicola Gai
Alfredo Cospito

C.C.Sanremo
Via Valle Armea 144
18038 Sanremo (IM )
Italy

UPDATES WILL FOLLOW ON POSSIBLE TRANSFERS

New letter from Mario “Tripa” López – September 4th (Mexico)

October 19th, 2012

From liberaciontotal, transl waronsociety:

And if I call myself an individualist anarchist, an iconoclast and a nihilist, it is precisely because I believe that in these adjectives there is the highest and most complete expression of my willful and reckless individuality that, like an overflowing river, wants to expand, impetuously sweeping away dikes and hedges, until it crashes into a granite boulder, shattering and breaking up in its turn. I do not renounce life. I exalt and sing it.
(…)
Anyone who renounces life because he feels that it is nothing but pain and sorrow and doesn’t find in himself the heroic courage to kill himself
(…)
Life — for me — is neither good nor bad, neither a theory nor an idea. Life is a reality, and the reality of life is war.

Renzo Novatore
I Am Also a Nihilist

There is a line from a poem-made-song that says that “life is like a sheet of paper, at any moment it could break”… Even with the nostalgia that intones, one finally realizes that it is so, simply and coldly. There is a fragile and light line between living and dying and, even though in certain moments it can depend on a decision that we make–consciously or unconsciously–it is concretely something unexpected that ends up taking us by surprise, since as they say: “When it’s your turn, even if you complain and when it’s not your turn, even if you put yourself out there.” Read the rest of this entry »

Nov-12th-Nov 19th: International Solidarity with Grand Jury Resisters! (USA)

October 18th, 2012

Against the State, the repression of anarchists, and against all prisons!

Solidarity with all those who resist!

Free Kteeo, Matt & Leah!
Free all prisoners!

Since July 25th 2012, there have been multiple house raids and the imprisonment of 3 anarchists in the Northwest (U.S.A.) in relation to an “ongoing violent crime investigation”. The State has referenced the Seattle May Day disruptions, vandalism, and demonstrations as a cause, particularly the heavy vandalism of a Federal Courthouse. However, it has since been discovered that the Grand Jury, which was called to question those named as potential witnesses, was actually convened in March 2012-two months prior to May Day.

Gabriel Pombo Da Silva – “Don Pedro” an authentic stoic (Spain)

October 17th, 2012

From liberaciontotal, transl waronsociety:

Don Pedro was (and may still be) a “true Stoic,” a “Unique” and “Egoist” being who ended up in prison for killing or stabbing someone (I have never been able to find out the entirety of that chapter of his life)…

I met him in the “Special Department” (FIES module) of “El Acebuche,” in Almería. Physically, he was a person who perfectly matched that stereotype we all have of Don Quijote: relatively tall, thin, in his fifties, with a pointy grey goatee and short hair… Read the rest of this entry »

Call out for Submissions: Post-Prison Zine (UK)

October 14th, 2012

We live in a Prison Society. Last year Her Majesty’s Prison Service incarcerated over 87,000 people in England & Wales alone (not including Scotland and Northern Ireland). Prison has long been used as a tool of oppression against anybody who does not fit in to society’s idea of a “good citizen”. The aim of Prison is to silence those people trapped within it’s walls, they seek to lock them up and throw away the key, effectively removing them from society. Not all Prison sentences are permanent though any many people will eventually return to the outside world. Read the rest of this entry »
