Riottosa Squat, Firenze, 2pm Sept 15 2013 : Meeting about the struggle and revolutionary solidarity – For a presence in solidarity for Nicola Gai and Alfredo Cospito’s trial on 30 Oct in Genoa (Italy)

August 30th, 2013

Sunday 15 September at 14.00 there will be at Riottosa Squat in Firenze the 3° Meeting about the struggle and revolutionary solidarity, and about a presence in solidarity for Nicola and Alfredo’s trial on 30 Oct in Genoa.

Below is a translated text previously written by some Italian anarchist comrades for this meeting, and the poster produced in the last meeting also:

With our heads held high – A call for debate and solidarity in anticipation of the trial against Nicola and Alfredo

On July 5 the preliminary hearing of the trial against anarchists Nicola Gai and Alfredo Cospito, arrested on September 14 2012 and accused of being the perpetrators of the wounding of Ansaldo Nucleare manager Roberto Adinolfi – designer and builder of nuclear power plants – will take place [postponed until October 30th]. The action was claimed by the Olga Nucleus of the Informal Anarchist Federation/International Revolutionary Front.

Phoenix Project #5 : ‘ICR-FAI-IRF / Free Mandylas and Tsavdaridis Cell’ take responsibility for the incendiary attack against a school for police in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan (Indonesia)

August 28th, 2013

Brief Message To The Enemies (Phoenix Project part 5)

[Parts 1, 2, 3 & 4]

We will not talk about “unfair prosecutions”, about “the climate of terror against those who fight”, nor about the “new totalitarian-ism” and things like that. That’s because we know that none of these is new. These are simply snapshots of the ancient war between two incompatible words: on the one side lies the disgusting world of the Authority, of the submissive crowd and of the social cesspit and on the other side, the anarchist insurgents, the insubordinate fighters of the Negative, those who do not bow down to nobody. We will neither talk about the others. The ones who these days feel secretly happy and relieved. Now it’s not the time nor the place to do so. They should bear in mind, however, that the time will come to talk about these things. -
Freedom To The Wolves of The North

When we said “nothing is over”, it’s not only just words. Our threats will turn into action, time by time, every second we get the chance. And every time, we will bring our actions closer to your face. Directly in front of your guns, uniforms and prison – repressive tools that are often used to kidnap our revolutionary comrades. We will never let you sleep well, because our war is not over yet. Read the rest of this entry »

Sept 14 2013 – International mobilization for Sonja Suder of the Revolutionary Cells (Germany)

August 28th, 2013

Two years in jail, it’s two years too much !

September the 14th of 2013- Let’s all mobilize everywhere to protest against the legitimization of torture in Sonja Suder’s trial and for her liberation.

September the 14th of 2011, Sonja and her friend Christian have been extradited by France to be given to German cops and jailed. Christian has been freed since but Sonja is still in jail. They left Germany in 1978 when, after a fierce repression of the revolutionary movements, every person involved in the radical protest could fear being the target of State revenge.

For two years, Sonja has been in custody in the high-security district of the prison Frankfurt-Preungesheim ; for a year she’s been enduring a trial grounded on two testimonies : one from a penitent given against a remission, the other given under torture in 1978 by a man suspected to belong to the Revolutionary Cells (RZ). If the penitent [snitch] Hans-Joachim Klein testified without shame in the Frankfurt court to give the umpteenth version of a testimony full of nonsense and contradictions (that the judge thinks worth considering anyway), Hermann F., on the contrary, always protested against the elements standing in the cross-examination he has been through : these elements are just the result of four months of torture outside of any procedural frame.

Portishead: Responsibility claim for major arson of police firearms training building and attack on security service vehicles (UK)

August 28th, 2013

August 27, 2013 – Responsibility claim for large-scale arson of £16million police firearms training facilities and vandalism of vehicles of the corporate security services:

The (under construction) Police Firearms Training Centre in Black Rock Quarry, Portishead, situated directly beneath the Avon and Somerset Police regional headquarters was our target on the night of 26th August, and we left it with flames licking high. The facility is intended to serve forces across the South West.

After climbing into the quarry we used accelerant to burn the major electrical cables at five junction points throughout the complex, and doused and lighted a pallet of electrical fittings and wires. More than twelve hours later the fire is still burning. It put smiles on our faces to realise how easy it was to enter their gun club and leave a fuck you signature right in the belly of the beast, with a curious fox as our only witness.

On the same night others of us attacked two vehicles near St George, Bristol with paint stripper and by slashing the tyres – one G4S and one Amey. In the UK and globally G4S provide prison and security services and profit from many aspects of prison society. Amey, in a joint venture with GEO transport prisoners in England and Wales and run courthouses in Bristol and North Somerset.

In the City around us the lock down increases; there is a general atmosphere of rising fear and powerlessness; there is more and more surveillance, and security guards with handcuffs appear on more and more doors. Tensions across the world are simmering as people lose faith in the system. As a response to this insecurity the state is militarising it’s police with firearms, remote control drones and ‘non-lethal’ weapons that regularly kill. At the same time they develop the preventative ‘soft cop’ buffer of community support officers, liaison teams and so on, that are more fitting with the democratic image. They even get some help from leftists such as John Drury from Aufheben with his contributions on crowd control, who is as terrified of the unmanageable as the ruling classes are. The British state is a world leader in counter-insurgency techniques. Their expertise is the result of generations long brutal colonisation, like in India, Kenya and to this day in Ireland.

PDF: Short interview by Contra Info with ten imprisoned comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (Greece)

August 27th, 2013

Short interview by Contra Info with Conspiracy of Cells of Fire members, ten comrades currently incarcerated in Greece

[April 2013]

” … The masks of anonymity fell because of our arrests. Therefore, by claiming responsibility for our participation in the anarchist direct action group Conspiracy of Cells of Fire we now have the chance to put forth and speak about direct and by all means attack on the existent, thus opening a lively ongoing dialogue with all those comrades who act in hostile ways against domination. We feel in this way, and despite the limitations we have as captives in the hands of Power, that we are contributing to the shaping of an offensive front of the black international of anarchists of praxis. Our contribution in all this brings us a ‘step’ closer to freedom, as we mentally escape and our minds and hearts accompany every attack of direct action against the civilization of authority. So we feel more alive, more vigorous and stronger, and our morale is reviving in thinking that the shackles of captivity cannot quell the momentum of our rebellious soul. This is why we contribute with all our strength to the dissemination of anarchist ideas and publications.” CCF-FAI

Hamburg: Attack on courthouse (Germany)

August 26th, 2013

The night of the 26th August an attack with stones and colour happened against the courthouse in Hamburg. Windows were smashed and the entrance coloured. In a text that appeared it was claimed that the attack happened in solidarity with the ones facing everyday state repression. Also with the comrades raided in Berlin because of attacks against jobcenters and a solidarity action for the revolt in Turkey. Also it was in solidarity with the comrade Sonja Suder who is still imprisoned for her uncompromising stand against the state and Justice!

Here is the original writing:

Hamburg: Angriff auf Strafjustizgebäude
Was Bullen und andere Staatsdiener_innen auf den Straßen mit Kontrolle und all der Repression durchsetzen, wird vom Gericht legitimiert und vollendet. Tagtäglich entscheiden sie in ihrem Theater der “Gerechtigkeit” über die Zukunft von Menschen, strafen sie, sperren sie ein und zerstören Leben. Ein paar Steine und etwas Farbe scheinen nicht viel gegen so ein Gebäude der Macht aber die Idee von einem freien Leben ist ihr größter Alptraum, denn es würde ihr Ende, das Ende der Unterdrückung, bedeuten!

Möge dieser Angriff denen, die auf der Anklagebank sitzen Kraft geben und all den anderen, die als Angestellte oder Spitzel das Gericht betreten, mehr als den Tag versauen!

Kraft für die, die in Berlin am 14. August von Hausdurchsuchungen bestroffen waren, weil die Bullen Schuldige für Angriffe auf unterdrückerische Jobcenter und Arbeitsargenturen sowie für eine Solidaritätsaktion mit der Revolte in der Türkei suchen. Wir finden diese Aktionen wichtig und richtig, egal wer sie gemacht hat!

Viel Kraft für Sonja Suder, die immer noch aufgrund ihrer kompromisslosen Haltung gegenüber Staat und Justiz im Knast sitzt!

‘Specialist Intervention’ at Strangeways prison Manchester by Kevan Thakrar (UK)

August 26th, 2013

Latest letter from Kevan Thakrar, via a comrade of ABC Brighton:

Unable to break my resolve and provoke me into any violent reaction after three and a half years at HMP Woodhill’s notorious Close Supervision Centre (CSC), I was transferred to the Specialist Intervention Unit (SIU) at HMP Manchester on 13 June 2013. Initially, people would be forgiven for thinking that finally getting off the CSC was a good thing, but when it is discovered that the move was due to Woodhill staff ‘needing respite’, having burned themselves out with their daily actions of brutality, the move is immediately seen in a different light.

ELF-Indonesia burn down the third floor of the Arts Institute of Jakarta (Indonesia)

August 25th, 2013

Civilization is not established by itself but by the people who support it. People who turned themselves into one of the poles of the civilization. Humans are the ones who gave birth to civilization. It also means that no one is innocent or not guilty in this present life. Every one plays their part in supporting the sustainability of civilization. So, every part of work, values, property, actions and every one who enjoy the benefits from civilization are enemies for us.

How it can be?

Humans are the creators for what is so-called: Culture. Culture is the direct mirror of civilization. Culture is but one of the brainwashing processes to make one bow and degrade the wild desires. Culture is not only a batch of values but tools of repression and hegemony. And two forms of among many culture’s faces is school and arts.

It lead us to send our fire to the Arts Institute of Jakarta located in Cikini, on 20th August. We brought our hatred to the heart of the hangout place of artists who are only puppets of civilization. We put an incendiary device in an empty room of the third floor in the afternoon. We did our action directly in the face of a group of artists who are the self-considered “avant-garde” and who felt that they were revolutionaries. We set the fire to laugh at their passivity which is nothing but another gesture that supports the civilization to keep running.

Arts Institute of Jakarta for a long time are filled with illusions. This place breed individuals who play a main role in creating a “counter-culture” which is only another culture, rather than to discover and attack the whole picture of culture: Civilization. They produce songs, paintings, buildings, poems, and different forms of arts to help civilization stick its nails of domination.

Our only regret is how the fire does not accomplish itself to burn down the whole building because of another of civilization’s helpers: the firefighters, who came in less than one hour to extinguish fires. But it’s not the end or our last action. We will hit you again.


ELF-Indonesian Fraction

PS: We send our greetings to the FAI / Friends of Earth in Argentina who burned down hundreds of cars and comrades of ELF-Russia. Also to the revolutionary prisoners around the world.

Montevideo: Comunicado de uno de los compas procesados sin prision en Uruguay

August 23rd, 2013

Rough english translation follows below:

Mortevideo, Uruguay, 21 de agosto

Mi detención se da en el contexto represivo de la manifestación del 14 de agosto en conmemoración del estudiante Liber Arce asesinado hace 45 años por las balas policiales financiadas en esta ocasión por el estado uruguayo.

Debido al creciente descontento social es que en los últimos meses por esta región se han producido incidentes y enfrentamientos en las variadas manifestaciones, lanzando pedradas, bombas de estruendo y molotovs, a la
policía y a los íconos del capitalismo, por eso necesitaban atrapar y mostrar públicamente algún responsable de estos desmanes, para ejemplificar el castigo en contra de los que no se mantengan obedientes. Read the rest of this entry »

NATO5 Prisoner MIGS Labelled ‘Gang Member’ By US Prison Authorities For Being An Anarchist (U$A)

August 23rd, 2013

Mark “Migs” Neiweem (pronounced Nye-wame) faces continued repression and torture in jail.

First he was placed in solitary confinement with just months remaining in his sentence at Pontiac Correctional Center. When members of Operation PenPal started a campaign demanding his return to general population, prison officials moved him to an even worse solitary cell infested with rats and roaches and where he is denied even the brief human contact solitary victims expect at feeding time.

Though he’s due to be freed in November, prison officials are bringing additional charges that could add to Migs’ sentence and endanger not just his freedom but that of future Occupy-associated political prisoners as well. “They accuse him of being an anarchist, which he is.” says Unterman. That’s not against the law — “but this is prison, so they are using it as a gang charge. The gang charges are worded so that you can apply it to almost anything.” Read the rest of this entry »

Interview with Individualist anarchist prisoners Elisa Di Bernardo and Stefano Gabriele Fosco of the blog Culmine (Italy)

August 23rd, 2013

From Aversión -Publicación Anarquista-issue 8, May 2013.
Translated from Italian by act for freedom now/B.pd

1 – Aversión: In recent years, for reasons we won’t analyse here, which mainly concern the direction the system is taking, but which affect our ways of relating with one another, blogs and websites have been taking on the task that our publications used to fulfil in the past. In your opinion, how does this affect the struggle and its perception?

– Culmine: We are convinced that we are going through a new era in anarchism. Blogs and websites allow the quick spreading of communiqués, texts and writings all over the planet, and make possible the exchange of ideas and proposals between comrades who will probably never get the chance to meet in person. This is a proper revolution in the relations between anarchists. We are well aware of the limits of this new way of relating considering both the fact that the instrument we use is not neutral, but is run and controlled by the enemy, and the fact that the risks are high, as Culmine demonstrates, even if the latter didn’t choose to stay anonymous. The anarchist blog Culmine was locked up on June 12 2012 also due to its work of counter-information. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Solidarity And Liberation’ by Walter Bond, A.L.F. Prisoner of War (USA)

August 21st, 2013

From behind fences and razor wire, from behind concrete walls and steel bars, from deep within the United States Penitentiary of Marion, from the CMU unit, from this counter-terrorism prison unit for political prisoners, I send revolutionary greetings to all Straight Edge, Vegan and Anarchist Comrades where ever you may be. From the confines of this dungeon of gray concrete I send a message of solidarity and hope to all the sisters and brothers worldwide, in hopes that all our causes for liberation will one day coalesce into the realization of Total Liberation. Just as the rivers all lead to the ocean, so too will the movements for Human, Earth and Animal Liberation pool into a far larger initiative. Read the rest of this entry »

Athens: CCF Trial Update – 3rd Trial (Greece)

August 20th, 2013

Translated by Actforfreedomnow!boubourAs

Session 58.

This session was interrupted again because of the hunger strike of one of the accused comrades who are not related to the CCF.

Session 59.
This session began with tension. The court often arranges sessions on the days the comrades of the CCF having visiting hours in prison. The result was the trial delayed to start, since the members of the Conspiracy have clarified that they will not interrupt their visiting hours in order to appear in court. In retaliation, the judges called the prison sergeant, in order to pressure the comrades to be in court “on time”. As soon as the members of the CCF were informed of that, they verbally attacked the judges stressing that “blackmail will not pass”, accompanying their statement with a torrent of swearing towards the chairman of the court. The judges receded on the matter of visiting hours and the trial was postponed again.

Session 60.

The interruption continued because of the hunger strike.

Session 61.

The trial continued after the decision of the appeals council to release the accused comrade on hunger strike. The prosecutor in one of his statements, referred to the political content of the CCF communiques concerning the attacks against embassies with parcel bombs. Because however there was a confusion concerning the separation of political and penal responsibility, a comrade of the CCF intervened immediately, stating that the comrades of the CCF support every word and every action of the Conspiracy, without dividing the political from the penal.

Session 62.

The trial continued this time with the anti-terrorist force constantly adding new documents for attacks of the Conspiracy that took place three years ago.

Session 63.

In this session appeared employees of courier companies as prosecution witnesses. Specifically one prosecution witness who worked at a courier company and opened the parcel bomb (because of the police curiosity of the employees), appeared very stressed (the courier company she worked at was attacked with a bomb by FAI a few months ago, as reprisals for its snitching). She testified that she was pressured by the cops since she could not remember many things and the cops helped in the testimony by writing a part themselves.

Session 64.

None of the prosecution witnesses which were called appeared. The court announced the new session dates, the chairwoman mentioned that because she had booked tickets for her vacation, she wants to interrupt the trial for three weeks. At that point intervened two comrades of the CCF who amidst the swearing towards the judges, mentioned the vengeful transfers carried out against them with the excuse of interrupting the trial resulting in their spreading to various prisons of Greece.

Session 65.

Two prosecution witnesses appeared, of which only one testified, while the other will testify in a future session. The witness that testified, mentioned the shoot out between a comrade of the CCF and cops. She characteristically mentioned that the bullets were raining and when she arrived, she saw the two cops injured on the ground and the comrade holding the leg that was shot. As she testified, what made an impression to her was the calmness and seriousness of the comrade who was not speaking or screaming compared to the two cops who as she said were “whining”. The reference and description of the incidents caused laughter to the comrades of the CCF and embarrassment to the cops.

Session 66.

This session was short since a witness came which was the courier who delivered the parcel-bomb to the Bulgarian embassy. He did not mention anything else and the court was adjourned for August 27th.
