Buenos Aires: Sabotaje a tren en solidaridad con lxs presxs anarquistas (Argentina)

March 28th, 2015

Todo en las ciudades esta diseñado para promover y perpetuar el constante flujo de mercancía, humana y de la otra. Millones de pesos se invierten en remodelaciones de estaciones de trenes e inauguraciones de otras, en construcción y mantenimiento de rutas, en mecanismos tecnológicos de control y represión, en recursos para lxs sirvientes armadxs al servicio del poder. Pensando en esto es que el día de hoy
buscamos sabotear aunque sea por un instante el normal funcionamiento de los engranajes que sostienen la estructura de dominación, atacando el tramo que une las vías de Floresta con Villa Luro mediante un artefacto incendiario/explosivo.
No entraremos en el juego de que con estas acciones perjudicamos solo a lxs trabajadorxs. Hoy lo importante fue romper la normalidad asfixiante aprobada por la inmensa mayoría de la sociedad policial.

¡En directa solidaridad y complicidad con nuestrxs hermanxs de la Conspiración de las Células del Fuego que se encuentran en huelga de hambre en las prisiones griegas desde el 2 de marzo pasado, exigiendo la inmediata liberación de su entorno mas próximo! Se hace urgente accionar pues el estado de nuestrxs compañerxs es grave, prueba suficiente es que 6 de ellxs se encuentran en el hospital. ¡Solidaridad con Angeliki y con lxs demás huelguistas!

¡Fuerza a lxs compañerxs de Chile en este nuevo aniversario del Día del Joven Combatiente. Extendamos los disturbios por todas partes!

Concretemos las venganzas de lxs muertxs, presxs y torturadxs por luchar contra el putrefacto estado Argentino…

“Either with Anarchy or with authority” by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (Greece)

March 27th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, 25th day of hunger strike – Either with Anarchy or with authority.

It’s already been 25 days that the mother of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos and the girlfriend of the second one are locked up in the cells of democracy.

We have already been for 25 days on hunger strike until death, demanding their immediate release.

It’s been 25 days and already eight of us are in hospitals with their health condition on the limits.

25 days are not just a number on a calendar, it is the experiment of evolution of repression, with new methods of emotional blackmail against imprisoned anarchist urban guerrillas.

This is not the first time the cardinals of “justice” set up an Inquisition against relatives of imprisoned urban guerrillas. It has happened before in the past, with persecuted relatives who were ultimately acquitted in courtrooms, after they were led as trophies by the police, on the altar of media and journalistic cannibalism. But this is the first time that repression is applied with such intensity against relatives, unleashing pogroms. Three arrests, two detentions and a case file that remains open.

The velvet laws of democracy in a period of leftist management of authority, imposed their own coup, that not even the military junta had dared to impose. During the military junta, when a fugitive and wanted enemy of the regime found shelter in a relative’s house, not even the military judges dared to persecute or imprison their relatives. Today, however, democracy is revealed in an increasingly fascist and vindictive way. Even the illusions of freedom, retreat now. It wears the iron chest of law, to ensure its tyranny. It attacks by imprisoning relatives, counter-terrorism laws, hood-laws, persecutions even for political texts, increased power of the judiciary and the counter-terrorism agency, TV-trials with journalists in the role of prosecutors, raids and searches in houses… This is the background of democratic freedom.

Repression, then, is not just a word. It is not only handcuffs, investigators and locked prison doors. It is, above all, a social relationship. It is a constant promise and guarantee of the balance of power’s horror. So, this is why we say that the case of the detention of our relatives is not just a personal matter. It is the management of fear and an emotional blackmail which starts from the individual, to reach the collective. The goal is one: the complete isolation and permanent elimination of the choice of the anarchist urban guerrilla.

The power and its system knows, now, that the arrests and imprisonment of unrepentant anarchist urban guerrillas will not lead us to any surrender or truce. Even prison, can become the laboratory of subversive situations for people whose captivity did not extinguish the flame of freedom inside them. It is another thing for one to be arrested and another to surrender. The only way that the system invented to neutralize us, is to isolate us politically, through journalistic slander, and to make us hostages, held not only by the State BUT also by our choices, which now have an impact on our associates, leading them to prison.

Currently, the blackmail of authority is clear: We either make a truce or our relatives will remain in prison. These are the practices of real organized crime and mafia…

Towards the terror dilemma, we answer with the dilemma of dignity and combat – they will either release our relatives, or they will deal with the torching of social peace, on the background of the hunger strike and the interactive relationship of combat and the attack it creates.

Of course, repression has an expansionary intention, as it wishes for fear to take up every possibility of subversive relationship and action. The pre-trial detentions of our relatives work as the forefront of fear, aiming to generalize it. It is no coincidence that, in the investigative offices, they possess and have checked the books of the visits we had in prison since 2011… It is no coincidence that in the courts against us, not only is the name of everyone present kept in the cops’ files, but they’re also “mapped” (even photographed) by the counter-terrorist officers and the undercover cops inside the court room. So, the message is clear- since they didn’t hesitate to imprison our relatives, then every comrade in solidarity can be found captive in an investigative office because they helped us financially, because they sent us a letter, because they talked to us… Here’s the point where the puzzle of repression is being set up. The counter-terrorism law describes exactly this condition – “Whoever helps morally or financially a terrorist organization, can be charged with being a member of it”. The more indefinite power is, the more totally it governs… So, the counter-terrorism law wished to repress every expression of solidarity. In what other way could the term “moral help” be interpreted? This way, everything is placed on the vice of repression. Moral help can even be to send a book to a prisoner or distribute a text of theirs, or even to publish it on counter-information sites. The same goes for the financial help. Collectives funding political prisoners for their living inside prison, can be targeted.

The wager set against the onslaught of fear is demanding and unconditional. We can reverse the terms and make fear change side. Towards the fear of repression, we can stand up with the stubbornness and the decision to attack, with no truce. The beginning of the judicial coup that imprisoned our relatives can be the starting point of a restart of rupture and battle for total liberation. The hunger strike is a mound of dignity against the suffocating siege of laws. The hunger strike can work as a detonator that may trigger a fairly heterogeneous explosive mixture. It is a meeting point that, on the background of the invasion of the police and judicial state, it connects people of fight, regardless of the individual starting points, the specialties and one’s differences. In no case do we promote the fake “unity”, projecting the collective amnesia of the ruptures that have taken place. It is not a fake “all together”, but an imperative “now it is the time to act”. The challenge set by the enemy with our relatives’ imprisonment, goes over the individuals’ likes and dislikes and this is why it can release a huge dynamic. The dynamic of the sharpening of the constant anarchist attack against every form of power. There, in the attack does one discover him/herself and his/her desires. And we can argue again tomorrow, if we want… But, today, it is time for decisions.

Either with Anarchy or with authority

Text written by the comrade on hunger strike Panagiotis Argyrou (Greece)

March 27th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

Today, 24/3, I am on the 23rd day of hunger strike until death, along with my other comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and anarchist comrade Angeliki Spyropoulou, in order for the mother of my comrades Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos and the wife of the latter to be released, who have been in custody for three weeks, under the completely ridiculous and groundless allegations of participation in our organization.

On Tuesday, 17/3, after having suffered a fainting episode, I was rushed to the hospital of Korydallos prison, from where I was directly discharged to an outside hospital because of the poor state of my health. I was transferred to Atticon hospital by ambulance, where, after my persistent refusal to receive serum, the doctors signed my discharge papers and I was returned to the prison’s hospital. After a judge’s order for mandatory hospitalization, I was transferred again on the same day to Atticon, where I am being hospitalized until today. I have to stress out that the judge’s order that was apparently issued by the persecution authorities of Korydallos prison, includes my forced feeding in case I lose my senses or after my refusal to accept treatment with serum, in order to force doctors to bypass my decision to continue the hunger strike until death and to submit me to the torture of forced feeding. Doctors, to their credit, have respected my choice so far and have not attempted to execute the judge’s order.

I ABSOLUTELY CLARIFY, with full awareness and by taking the full responsibility that I will continue my hunger strike until death, until our demand is satisfied. I release the doctors of Attico hospital from any responsibility for whatever happens to me and I consider fully responsible for any bad outcome of my health, the moral instigators of the imprisonment of our relatives and also their political superiors (SY.RIZ.A government, Ministry of Justice), who wash their hands like Pontius Pilate, looking away from the hunger strike until death that is taking place.

Things are on their path. We will either win or the leftist government will count the first dead hunger strikers in Europe after at least 40 years.

Solidarity with all hunger strikers since 02/03, who demand:

a) The abolition of 187/187A

b) The abolition of the hood-law

c) The abolition of the legal context concerning the taking and utilizing DNA samples by the persecuting authorities

d) The abolition of type C prisons

e) The release of the heavily injured Savas Ksiros

Defeat is to give up

Real death is to surrender

Dignity until the end

Text written by the comrades – hunger strikers Mihalis Nikolopoulos and Damiano Bolano from Evaggelismos hospital (Greece)

March 27th, 2015

Wednesday, March 25, while we’re on the 24th day of hunger strike and our physical condition and health gets worse, we are hastily transferred for hospitalization to Evaggelismos hospital. There, from the first examination, from the pathology clinic and the full care of the hospital doctors, we are “delivered” to the outer guard of Korydallos prison. And there, with the head of the shift (details will be published in the future), a series of disturbances in the form of hazing begin, aiming to affect our psychology and humiliate our personalities, in vain of course.

The story begins the moment when our relatives come to visit us for a few minutes and they were forbidden to. Shall we mention here that there already was an assurance from the council and the prosecution authorities of the prison that both our relatives and our doctors can regularly visit us on a daily basis, as patients. Of course, this was just the beginning. Then, we asked for bottles of water from the canteen, and he refused to give us some. This one, tragic as it may sound, is true. The ultimate surrealism. Paranoia was obvious even from his answer: “Water not, maybe a cup of coffee”. Such a paranoia that even we were dumbfound. And the finishing touch. While we were waiting for some exams, when doctors arrived to take us to the radiological wing, we saw the head of the outer shift bringing a wheelchair with him and wanting to tie us up on it! We told him that we can go walking, normally, in handcuffs, the way we came. Immediately and in a captain’s style, he mentioned that in handcuffs only with hands behind their back (to individuals on hunger strike for 24 days!) or tied up on a wheelchair. While we bluntly mentioned that this can’t happen and that we’re on the 24th day of hunger strike and it is unbearable to be tighten up with hands behind our backs, he turns to the doctor saying “they don’t want to do the exam”. We answered to the doctor that we obviously wanted (to do) the exam, we just wanted them to carry us “in a humane way” with the handcuffs on the front, when he rushed to say “you’re not humans, you’re prisoners”. That was when our limits were reached and he suffered a verbal attack with tones of verbal abuses by us and he went away sending away the doctor and repeating “they don’t want (to do) the exam”.

This specific update is not a “pointless complaint”, but a notification of the incidents that took place here. The answers from all of us, all people of the struggle, won’t be legal complaints, but anarchist action through the “sphere*” of the anarchist struggle. This is why, as we said, in the first chance, we will publish details on the identity of this tormentor.

Until victory

Michalis Nikolopoulos

Damiano Bolano,

Members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – FAI/IRF

Evaggelismos Hospital,

26/3/2013

*The word “sphere” and the word “bullet” is the same in Greek

Convocatoria: Frente a la Sociedad Carcelaria, Ni Silencio, Ni Olvido, Solo Lucha!! 10-20/4/2015 ($hile)

March 27th, 2015

CONVOCATORIA: FRENTE A LA SOCIEDAD CARCELARIA, NI SILENCIO, NI OLVIDO, SOLO LUCHA!!

* A todxs nuestrxs hermanxs, compañerxs, afectos y amores.

*A las complicidades multiformes del mundo entero que atacan el presente de explotación y miseria, de dominio, capital y muerte.

* A todxs los prisionerxs subversivxs, autónomos, libertarixs, revolucionarixs, antiautoritarixs que no niegan sus vínculos ni convixiones y resisten diaria y dignamente no tan solo en palabras sino que en concretas axiones.

“Quien teme a la libertad siente orgullo de ser esclavo”
Bakunin.-

La lucha contra el poder de la dominación y la totalidad de los dispositivos simbólicos, subjetivos, tangibles y valóricos que lo sustentan y sostienen requiere, ante todo, de aquella decisión individual, radical e inquebrantable de llevar la tensión a todos los espacios de la vida, haciendo de esta un continuo camino de liberación. Claro está que llegar a este convencimiento, decisión, opción implica un proceso que cada cual vive de manera única e irrepetible según el contexto y las circunstancias en que hemos abierto los ojos para luchar. Caminar hacia la emancipación como principio rector para la destruxión de la sociedad de clases no es un proceso instantáneo ni en solitario, aún siendo individual, en el encuentro de las ideas vamos construyendo vínculos que nos van hermanando en la práctica, generando puntos de afinidad, incluso, con mentes conscientes que directamente no conocemos pero con quienes vamos articulando un camino común.

Solidarity with CCF hungry strike from FAI/IRF cell (Czech Republic)

March 27th, 2015

Every phrase written on the gray walls of the dead cities, every solidarity banner, every punch with brass knuckles to the face, every theft, every car set on fire, every destroyed ATM, every blasphemy, is blackmailing the world of Power and civilization, against each representative and servant of system and keeps alive the spirit and pushes it forward. Spirit of individual armed revolt in a never ending war against Authority… Now is time when free individuals – men and women – take decisions which overcome the fear of death.

Strength to the imprisoned members of CCF and to all the imprisoned anarchists of action around the world.

Long live armed anarchy FAI / IRF

All mentioned hunger strikers are on the 24th hunger strike day in a critical condition with now visible symptoms that they are at risk of destabilization of their bodies that may threaten their health and even their very lives.

All strikers have lost 13% -15% of their initial body weight, report feeling weakness, dyspnea, and fatigue on minimal exertion. Exhibiting hypotension, hypoglycemia, hyperuricemia, ketonuria, electrolyte abnormalities and mild mucosal pallor.

Considering the clinical picture, the results of laboratory tests and the particular problems of each, (from their personal history) I point out the seriousness of their situation, and I urge the competent institutions to take responsibility of their part immediately, to avoid any negative development .

The doctor
Pantelia Vergopoulou
