Video and communique from the arsonists in Khimki forest (Russia)

August 7th, 2012

20 July 2012

On the night of 20-21 July, after having received news of new tree-cutting activity in Khimki forest, we decided to visit the workers. We aimed for 2 trucks and excavator parked on the clear cut. They were completely destroyed.

Our solidarity goes out to eco-activists who broke the arm of private guard who was guarding the clear cut (this piece we learned from news).

Enough of pseudo-legalism!

Do like us, do better than us.

CCF : Reports from the 2nd Halandri Trial (Greece)

August 6th, 2012

From This Is Our Job:

Summary of days 26 and 27 (Wednesday, July 25 and Thursday, July 26) of 2nd Halandri Case trial

These sessions marked the beginning of the defense attorneys’ remarks.

As one of the attorneys pointed out, the four Fire Cells Conspiracy comrades have distanced their position from the “defensive” remarks of their attorneys, since the comrades don’t recognize the authority of the court and won’t make apologias. The attorney explained that the defense attorneys’ remarks would thus express only their own opinions, and not the anarchist position of the Fire Cells Conspiracy. Read the rest of this entry »

No more border killings!
Request for solidarity!

Originally from North Darfur, Sudan, he had been in Calais for more than four years. He was well known and loved in Calais, and leaves many grieving friends. He died just some 200 metres from the Sub-prefecture (government office) where he had recently been granted leave to remain in France as a refugee. Read the rest of this entry »

Greece: Banner over the Aegean Sea, in solidarity with the fisherfolk’s fight in the Manado Bay (Indonesia)

August 5th, 2012



From contra-info:

In the context of Contra Info call for propaganda actions against repression, in the first days of August we placed a banner close to a coast and a crossroad on Kalymnos, an island where the traditional way of fishing and sponge diving has been performed for too many decades. This was our small token of solidarity with the ongoing struggle of the Malalayang traditional fisherfolk, who proudly resist a mega-project along the Manado coast, in Indonesia. We thus wanted them to know they are not alone.

Read and spread the call for solidarity and resistance against the mega-project of Coastal Reclamation in Manado (June 2012): in English / Spanish

The banner reads in Greek-English-Indonesian:

From Greece to Indonesia, sabotage against Capital/Power
Strength, fisherfolk of Manado
Solidarity with the fight in Manado-Indonesia
Long live sporadic direct action

Anti-Olympic solidarity – Burn London Burn (GB)

August 5th, 2012

From contra-info:

… At the main gate of the Polytechnic School, on Patission Street, we dropped a banner against the London Olympics, now in progress. The banner reads: “Smash the OlymPIGS and the capitalist wankers – Arson and wildfire to the Olympic ideals – Burn, London, burn”… The Olympic ideals are stinking of money, militarization and repression. We don’t forget the comrades who, despite the super-spectacle set up by cops, military and mass media, are stepping forward and spitting the society of submission on its face. Let us also remind people of the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, as well as the need to organize an international campaign against the displacements of oppressed populations who are living in the Brazilian favelas.

… From some place of Tenerife (Canary Islands), the name of which we don’t want to remember we have wanted to unite the callout made by Contra Info for actions of international solidarity.

Electricity pylon destroyed by villagers in Paniki Atas (Indonesia)

August 4th, 2012

Rough translation from Negasi:

Wednesday, July 12, 2012, a High Voltage Electricity Pylon was destroyed by villagers of Paniki Atas, North Minahasa regency, North Sulawesi. This action of destruction is a manifestation of the attitude of rejection of the establishment of facilities for the residents in the surrounding residential area. The facility itself is a project of the State Electricity Company. As a result of this action, the pylon in the village was totally destroyed and until now (August 2, 2012) can not be operated. Nine Paniki Atas villagers have been named as suspects and are required to undergo a series of inspections and investigations at the office of Police – North Minahasa. The investigations were scheduled for July 31, 2012, but only two residents who received the demand complied. Read the rest of this entry »

From IMC UK:

Meet 6.30pm Southbank by Waterloo Bridge Friday 10th August.

This is a mid month Critical Mass to show solidarity with the cyclist killed on the road on 1st August by an Olympic bus.

All cyclists including Olympians, are invited to join us as well as wheelchairers, skateboarders, roller bladers, roller skaters and other self-propelled people.. This Critical Mass will be huge – spread the word.

Call Out for day of action to support Kelly Pflug-Back, G20 political prisoner (Canada)

August 4th, 2012

On July 19 our friend Kelly Rose Pflug-Back was sentenced to 15months in jail followed by 3 years of probation for her involvement in the Black Bloc at the Toronto G20. The crown stated that this sentencing was meant to send a clear message that the actions of the Black Bloc would not be tolerated. Kelly spent much of the preceding year under house arrest and strict conditions, designed to isolate her from the movement and disable her from doing the work she believes in. Yet through it all Kelly has remained active, strong, and defiant! Read the rest of this entry »

New letter from injured anarchist Mario López (Mexico)

August 1st, 2012

325 receives and transmits:

Compañer@s, I’ll try to make this as brief as possible, as I’ll have more than enough time in the future to lay out my stance and my reflections. My position remains the same: I claim myself absolutely as an Anarchist and the only one responsible for my acts. For now, I’ll limit myself to thanking my compañer@s of affinity for their solidarity and to “denounce” just a few deeds of many within this deceitful process which all began the moment I claimed myself an Anarchist, of which I do not regret. Never apologetic! Read the rest of this entry »

Tax office sabotaged in St. Petersburg – July 2012

On the night of 26 July an electric distribution box of the Russian tax police was set on fire (St. Petersburg, Partisan Herman, 37). A 1 litre incendiary was used for the action. On the following day the cables were changed, but the box itself still shows signs of fire.

Bryansk, Russia. Cell tower torched, equipment expropriated – July 2012

If you happen to travel from Bryansk to Gomel, you may happen upon a tree-covered hill with what appears to be a cell tower on it. But upon closer examination you will see that the cables are burned and hang in tatters, while the booth itself was broken into and its portable equipment taken away. There are still tracks of our “tachanka” on the ground.

Summary of the first two days of trial against Luciano “Tortuga” (Chile)

July 29th, 2012

Update: Summary of days 3 to 5 + New Photo

From negratortuguita, transl waronsociety:

The trial started on Friday, July 20th, in the justice center. Below we reproduce the summary made by Viva la Anarquia.

PUNISHMENT

We learned that our compa has been punished by the jailers and in isolation since Thursday the 19th. We learned this thanks to the fact that his lawyer was going to visit him and found him handcuffed to his bed, and demanded (during the hearing) explanations for the punishment. The judges in turn requested the prison guards to give the explanations in a maximum period of 24 hours. Read the rest of this entry »

Fuck the London 2012 Olympics (GB)

July 29th, 2012

Beyond the gold, silver and bronze glitter that bedazzles us through the corporate media (the myth), there is a dark & sinister shadow comprised of greed & destruction (the reality). This shadow is cast primarily over the poor and the natural world, who suffer the most from impacts of Olympic Games. While officials’ talk about the ideals of the ‘Olympic Spirit’, ‘Olympism’, & the ‘Olympic Movement’ (with vague references to the interrelation of sports, humanity, & universal ethics: myth), it would be more accurate to refer to it all as the Olympic Industry (reality). It can be defined as such because in spite of its ‘nonprofit’ image as a champion of amateur sports, it is in fact a multi-billion dollar industry comprised of government & corporate elites working together to maximize their profits, status and power.

London counter-olympics demo: back to the old A to B (GB)

July 29th, 2012

Leftist protest groups, social activists and London anarchists remarked today that numbers were low on their demo which took place on Saturday 28 July.

The march, which couldn’t deviate from a proscribed route upon threat of violent arrest, restrictive bail conditions, detention or ‘anti-social behaviourial order’, was widely publicised, but did not attract many people willing to submit to the regime’s police and the corporate para-state. Some other leftists and social activists were glad that the march got worldwide media coverage, of hundreds of people attending a state-approved protest route and rally, which sent out a ‘strong message’ to the world.

From an alarmist via IMC UK:

London counter-olympics demo: back to the old A to B

A few hundred people marched from one park in the east end to another park in the east end.

Comrades! A great victory! Today a few hundred counter-olympics protestors (500 according to the BBC, or maybe up to 1000 in fact), including members of no less than 43 organisations, marched from Mile End Park in East London, to Wennington Green, another park in East London not very far away. The demo headed along the Mile End road tantalisingly in the direction of the olympic park at Stratford, before doubling back in a state-approved circular route to keep everyone safely out of harm’s way.

Everything went according to plan. No one disrupted nothing. Arriving at Wennington Green, we listened to a range of inspiring speeches, beginning with a rallying cry from someone who was introduced as the writer of a “great article in last week’s Socialist Worker”. Well done comrades for not jumping the gun and taking any precipitous action! We’re still doing a great job of lulling the state into a false sense of security as, behind the scenes, our ninja army of highly trained cadres all get into position for the final reckoning.
