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 »

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.

Eco-activists attack highway construction site in Khimki forest causing $2,000,000 damage (Russia)

July 27th, 2012

19 & 21 July 2012

Russia. Khimki forest (north of Moscow). Construction vehicles torched, tree-cutter assaulted, his arm broken.

Unknown activists have torched several construction vehicles and assaulted tree-cutter at the new toll highway construction site in Khimki forest. These news appeared in joint declaration, published by state enterprise “Avtodor” and “North-Eastern concession” (subsidiary of Vinci). The accidents happened on nights of 19.07 and 21.07. “Avtodor” representatives stated that an assault on tree-cutters took place on 19.07: one of the workers tried to prevent eco-activists from entering the construction site. In the following fight his arm broke.

On the night of 21.07 special construction vehicles were torched: several brand new harvesters and hydraulic excavator were completely destroyed by fire. Material damage is estimated to be over $2,000,000.

Earlier the same companies filed a complaint about unknown people opening fire on construction vehicles (supposedly from “Saiga”, a civil 12-mm carbine) and torching workers sheds with molotovs.

Eco-activists present at the site of an eco-camp near the construction site failed to provide police with evidence or ideas about the nature of perpetrators.

1–10 August 2012: Contra Info call for propaganda actions against repression (Global)

July 27th, 2012

We make a call out for ten days of propaganda actions, in as many places as possible, aiming to promote struggles which are more or less known but also entirely unknown to many people. Individuals and/or groups who wish to join in these ten days will choose the thematic and the means according to their own criteria and dynamics, for the strengthening of international and reciprocal solidarity amongst the oppressed.

We are mainly suggesting taking to the streets, painting slogans and dropping banners in solidarity with cases that we believe are important to be heard. We have done this in Athens in the past months, and you must have done it, too, in several occasions. But we need to go a step further and carry out such actions simultaneously at a European level and, hopefully, beyond. Some of us are in the UK, Germany, France, Spain, Serbia, Portugal, Greece, but also in America, therefore we can make out of a simple action something beautiful. For those that feel all alone in places where they live, it might seem harder… but all you need is a sheet, paint or spray, plus a nice location. Wherever you are, call your mates and spread the word. Read the rest of this entry »

Prison song: ‘Break The Walls’ by Eat & Deong (Indonesia)

July 26th, 2012

Update: Download ‘Break The Walls’ MP3. Recorded in Cebongan prison, music by Eat and Deong.

From ultraegoist, personal blog/diary of Eat:

Break The Walls

Lyric/arr: Eat-Deong

No need, no need, no need for you to bow
Silence, silence, silent are just for herds

We are a pack of angry wolves hunting our prey at night
We are a pack of angry wolves howling at the moonlit night

Tear down, tear down, the void is always around
Let’s break the walls (4x)
You and me got to be

The intifada, coming from Gaza
Black flags are raising
Social war is here
Civil war is everywhere

Let’s break the walls (3x)
All of us got to be set free

July 25th, 2012

325 receives and transmits:

25 July 2012

GDF corporation exposed and attacked in Bristol

Last night we visited GDF’s office on the Anglo Office Park in Speedwell, broke around 20 windows around the unit (on both the ground floor and first floor) and left spray-painted tags next to the front door, ECOCIDE (with an arrow pointing to the company logo) and A.C.A.B. with an anarchist symbol.

GDF (while not a house-hold name over here yet) is a global energy and utility corporation with many arms, which among other things was a pioneer of nuclear power in Europe (including the UK, where they’re now in line for a new reactor in Sellafield), are involved with building police infrastructure here in the South-West, run 15 private-public prisons and surveillance camera systems in hundreds of cities and towns in France, provide communication systems for the defence industry, security for Total’s oil rigs in Nigeria…

A poem by the inmates from the 2nd wing of Larissa men’s prisons dedicated to Lambros-Viktoras Maziotis Roupas, the little son of two members of Revolutionary Struggle (Greece)

July 25th, 2012

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012
For Lambros-Viktoras Maziotis Roupas’ birthday

Born behind prison bars, the visible ones, that hide the heavens

The human guards, the cops and crows, the patrons of quiet sleep were the midwife of yours

You celebrated your first birthday with the shadows cast by steel barriers…

Bourgeois democracy is so merciful…

Now it’s your second birthday, the starlight you’d never seen until now

With the horizon ahead of you extending to infinity

With dogs barking from afar

We wish you ardent years, seas resounding in your ears, thunders singing lullabies to you

The tide coming in and erasing your footsteps, on the sand…

With respect and love to those who did not regret what they ever dared to do
Honour and remembrance forever for Lambros Foundas

This goes out to Nikos, Pola and very young Lambros-Viktoras

The prison inmates of the 2nd wing of Larissa

-

Happy Birthday and life’s freedom to Lambros-Viktoras Maziotis Roupas from 325. Strength, warmth and respect to Nikos and Pola. Honour to the memory of Lambros Foundas, member of Revolutionary Struggle. Solidarity to those accused and on trial for the same case.

REVOLUTION FIRST AND ALWAYS
