Paris: Death to screws – CGT (France)

February 11th, 2013

From Nantes IMC:

On the night of 3 to 4 February, the local CGT office at 13 RUE PIERRE BONNARD in the 20th arrondissement, saw all its windows explode.

This is because of their screws and their dirty work of confinement.

Through this attack, we want to send a full salvation of strength and determination to those who, in the jail of Roanne and also raise their heads to face prison and loose keychain uniforms. (For the record: http://nantes.indymedia.org/article/26893 and http://nantes.indymedia.org/article/26961)

On this occasion we also carry a combative message for Marco Camenisch and all rebels who do not let themselves be overwhelmed by the horror of prison, or by the horror of this society in its entirety.

This all sounds the cry of rebellion, which is also a cry of joy:

Death to prison
Long live freedom.

Solidarity with friends of Saleh family arrestees (UK)

February 8th, 2013

Solidarity with friends of Saleh family arrestees.

SUPPORT THE TWO FRIENDS OF THE SALEH FAMILY WRONGLY ARRESTED DURING THE DAWN RAID ON THE FAMILY HOME.
18/02/2013 @ Cardiff Magistrates Court

Friends arrested during dawn raid of family home:

Last October at around 6.30am Mrs Saleh and her two children were woken up by half a dozen UKBA officials and told to prepare themselves for deportation. Mrs Saleh’s daughter and other friends of the family quickly came to the house and video footage of some of these events can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1NXwTOnzp8

Two friends of the family were arrested outside the families home, without being told what they were being arrested for. Later at the station, charges were made up citing obstruction of UKBA officers during their official duty.

The two friends have known the family personally for some time and were well aware of the fear the family faced at the threat of being sent back to Egypt. More on the background of Mrs Saleh’s claim can be found here: http://ncadc.org.uk/blog/2012/10/instead-of-protection-the-saleh-familys-ordeal-continued-in-the-uk

Their court case is on Monday 18th February 9:30am in Cardiff Magistrates court. This is a call out for solidarity with this case and the wider struggle for freedom of movement.

Obituary For Riyano (Indonesia)

February 8th, 2013

Riyano Tanjung Pahlevi, an anarchist from Borneo, died this year of industrial cancer. Riyano and Eat co-founded Katalis journal in 2008. Love, respect and solidarity. The translation is by waronsociety via ultraegoist.

Obituary For Riyano

Ino, my friend, in a time when the air was still giving you life,
we both believed that one day we would see
with our own eyes a new world.
A world in which people are no longer wolves to each other,
a world in which we are all lovers and family.

But tonight a star of darkness has snatched you out of this dark world.
Ino, the new world that we “dreamed” of is still too far away.
And yet, the good days
we once spent together
will not be forgotten. Days and nights
when dreams and passions hotter than a supernova burst
into laughter, fire, and anger. And the days when the “new world”
was still too far away for the “awaiting.”
I didn’t mind. Not at all.
Because I know this: you have to live your life
as fully as you desire. We lived best
and were the happiest people in those days.

Farewell my friend, You have sailed someplace
where power no longer applies. And you will never die
for me. Because everything tossed into the decaying earth is a living organism
continuing the cycle of life. You are the air that I breathe.
And Ino, I am sure you are loving to read these last words.

One more reason to welcome the fire of Prometheus!

Au revoir, mon ami!

Urgent: Anti-fascist prisoner Jock Palfreeman on hungerstrike in Bulgarian prison

February 8th, 2013

From Anarchist Solidarity:

Australian Anti-fascist prisoner Jock Palfreeman, serving 20 years on Sofia/Bulgaria for defending two Roma boys from racist mob is on hungerstrike from 13th January 2013 because the Director of the Central Sofia Prison has ordered another punishment measures, most probably because of Jock´s activist work as chairman of the Bulgarian Prisoner´s Association.

Due to this punishment Jock is now not allowed to finish his studies which is very important for him.

Jock’s health is rapidly worsening as he continues his hunger strike and he is not even allowed to see a doctor as yet another repressive measure by the prison authorities.

He asks for solidarity from all of you by sending a petition to the Bulgarian Ministry of Justice :

Ministry of Justice
Diana Kovacheva
1 Slavanska Street
Sofia 1040,
Bulgaria

Please start putting pressure now before it’s too late. Jock needs our support!

Concerning the 4 arrests in Kozani, Greece by CCF imprisoned members

February 7th, 2013

ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE C.C.F.
Translated by Actforfreedomnow/boubourAs

If we speak, we speak because we do not abandon the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire in the cesspool of state propaganda. For the robbery in Kozani, the exclusivity is held by the arrestees themselves, who are not members of the Conspiracy. Besides, the conspiracy was not “hit” by these arrests and our perceptions as well as our cells remain unscathed…

However, because the state mechanism of propaganda is constantly referring to the Conspiracy, we clarify our position. Anarchist urban guerrillas are not “good kids”, neither do have the need to be defended by the hypocrites of humanism and the contractors of leftist sensitivity.

Anarchist urban guerrillas abandon the role of the victim in order to take positions as offenders against this passive silence of society.

We know that anarchist violence against the regime is the only way to liberation. Those who hesitate to arm themselves, will be proven too cowardly to live with dignity. Far from the humanistic rhetoric and crocodile tears over the beaten faces of the arrestees, specific choices were hit. The choice of robbing a bank aiming at the support of illegal aformalistic anarchist cells was, is and will be an anarchist practice.

In the war against the state and its society you do not ask for mercy from the enemy. Anarchists of praxis do not respect any bourgeois legality. The matter is not for someone to speak of police arbitrariness, but to attack first, here and now. Besides, life will always belong to one kind of people, the people of action.
Strength to the 4 anarchist hostages who are persecuted for the robbery in Kozani.
We support those who support their choices and remain unrepentant.

WE CREATE AND ORGANIZE 10, 100, 1000 CELLS OF THE CONSPIRACY…
LONG LIVE THE INFORMAL ANARCHIST FEDERATION (FAI/IRF)
EVERYTHING CONTINUES…

The imprisoned members of the C.C.F.

P.S. We wholeheartedly send our solidarity to comrades Alfredo Cospito and Sergio Maria Stefani who the screws of the Italian prisons forbid to have visits as well as our friend and hunger striker since 4/2/13 Spiros Dravilas who the greek “correctional” system vengefully deprives him of his days of leave.

Nos unimos al llamado internacional de movilizaciones por la liberación del compañero Marco Camenisch! Este 5 de febrero en la embajada Suiza en Bogotá. Col.

Marco se encuentra en prisión ininterrumpidamente desde hace más de 21 años, podría ya disfrutar de la excarcelación anticipada que las leyes del Estado suizo estipulan para quien ha cumplido los 2/3 de la pena a la que fue condenado. Pero en cuanto a Marco, que con coherencia nunca ha bajado la cabeza ante las desigualdades y nocividades de este Sistema, las autoridades suizas quieren mostrarse, cual relojes, más crueles que precisos: Marco debe quedarse en la cárcel.

Statement by three of the anarchists arrested for the bank robbery in Kozani (Greece)

February 6th, 2013

From Athens IMC via OccupiedLondon:

We steal a couple of words from the cells of the detention centre where we are held hostage, in order to state our aims and our intentions and to clear up the air regarding the recent events.

As Anarchists, we deem the choice of a bank robbery as a conscious act of resistance. Our act did not aim at the creation of personal wealth. The attack against the temples of capital is part of our revolutionary activity as a whole. Read the rest of this entry »

UKBA raid disrupted by Anti Raids Network (UK)

February 5th, 2013

February 2nd: UKBA raid West African Restaurant, Old Kent Road, near Elephant and Castle.

On Saturday night, approximately 6-7 UKBA officers and around 4 police officers rushed into a West African restaurant at 8.55pm. The raiding party arrived in one white van and one silver van, licence plate BP55DCU. But this time the operation wasn’t going to take place in silence.

About 20 people from the Anti Raids network entered the restaurant hot on their heels and informed everyone present of their rights in the face of immigration checks: you do not have to answer any questions, and you are free to leave at any time. Many people immediately got up and left – presumably not wanting to spend their night out being interrogated by UKBA thugs. Read the rest of this entry »

Athens: Solidarity with Dimitris Politis and Giannis Mixailidis (Greece)

February 5th, 2013

The comrades Dimitris Politis and Giannis Mixailidis are transferred to Koridallos prison and now they are with the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire! They are strong and healthy. Yesterday they brought them to the court that is currently running about the case of the ‘safe-house’ in Volos, the day before they were taken to the prosecutor for the warrants they have about that case.

Today, the fucking pigs transferred them to Kozanis court to the local prosecutor about the double robbery at Belvendo Kozanis! They will also transfer there the other two comrades arrested (Nikos Rwmanos and Andreas Mpourzoukos) but they are not jailed yet!!!

There is no reason to sleep calm, judges, politicians, police and other shit.

Solidarity to Dimitris Politis and Giannis Mixailidis

Solidarity Call for Ryo (1986-2012) – NEGASI

February 5th, 2013

Update: The wife of Ryo is now home from the hospital. She sends hugs and love to all
comrades for the solidarity fund and solidarity letters. Honour to Ryo and his family.

Here follows a letter from the ex-members of Negasi, about the murder of our comrade Ryo. They are making public a situation that has hit them. War against the existent.


To all comrades,

On 25th November 2012, we lost our comrade named Ryo. He was killed by a coward in the morning when trying to go back to his place after looking for breakfast. Ryo is a member of the first generation of NEGASI and was active in counter-info projects, translation and publication to support the anti-authoritarian movement in Manado.

Ryo also involved in local autonomous struggles in North Sulawesi. He took a position as a campaigner and published infos related to the struggles. Stubborn but humble and always being the first one who would care about his comrades problems. Ryo left a wife and a four years old son.

Right now, we need solidarity from comrades abroad for his wife and son. For us, wife and child of our comrade is also our comrades. And as a form of direct solidarity, we stand next to her. Right now, his wife faces serious health condition and has been some days in hospital. The social pressures, mostly from the local press related to the case are one reason why our comrade passes the nights in the hospital.

On the other side, the trial against the killer is still running in the court. But, as we are anti-judicial, we are and will not respect and depend on the court to bring justice to our comrade. Our comrades life can’t be substituted by sending someone into jail because we against all the forms of prison. We always believe that justice can’t be given by the state where we are an enemy of it. We believe that the only justice is direct solidarity and collapse of the enemies.

For solidarity letters and solidarity fund or further infos, you can send email to: negasi [at] riseup [dot] net

Direct solidarity !!!
Against justice belonging to the State !!!
No prison !!! Only burn it !!!

Ex-members of NEGASI


Ryo (1986-2012) – Active member of NEGASI

Our comrades in Indonesia continue the fight. A new formation of Negasi, called ‘Asimetris’ has started the blog asimetris.noblogs.org

Athens: Anarchists Dimitris Politis and Yannis Michailidis arrested (Greece)

February 3rd, 2013

From Contra Info:

According to a report on Indymedia Athens, comrades Yannis Michailidis and Dimitris Politis were arrested by police along with two other persons.

Arrest warrants had been issued against both comrades for alleged participation in the anarchist revolutionary organization Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.

The arrests were made in the morning of February 1st, 2013, and now the cops attempt to link the arrestees to two armed bank robberies in the wider area of Kozani (northern Greece).

All four hostages were severely beaten by the cops. In a corporate video from the courthouse in Kozani, comrades are heard shouting:

“Long live anarchy! Long live anarchy, you scumbags!”

“Long live anarchy! Cops, judges, politicians, you have no reason to sleep calm. We lost a battle but not the war! – Fuck off!”

Strength to the comrades that were kidnapped by the State!
