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.

ELF-Moscow torches construction vehicle used in destruction of a park (Russia)

August 20th, 2013

we receive and transmit:

About two weeks ago we torched a tracked excavator at the place where workers were destroying Ismailovo park. The vehicle was parked on the side of the highway, where they were adding more lanes to the road. It took us 3-4 minutes to do the job. We approached. We set up our load of rags, no rush (we targeted spots between the cockpit, engine room and hydraulics in the arm). Added some gasoline and set it on fire. Quickly ran to the opposite side of the street, took our bottles of beer from bags and headed towards the nearby subway station. After about 10 minutes of walking we saw a firefighter brigade (all noisy and flashy) driving to the place of recent ecotage (they would be just in time to save the smoking remains).

Words of encouragement to our Ukranian comrades who for reasons unknown suspended all activity. We would also like to mention our rage at the sentence of Igor “Squash” Kharchenko: http://grani.ru/Society/Law/m.217970.html [antifascist from Moscow, sentenced to prison time after a controversial trial process despite all evidence proving his innocence - trans.]

Have no doubt, we will avenge him.

‘Outsourcing Repression And Control In Prison’ by John Bowden (UK)

August 20th, 2013

Here is the latest letter from John Bowden, via a comrade of the ABC Brighton.

As modern monuments to naked and undisguised state power prisons, it would be reasonable to assume, are institutions where those confined are so completely disempowered and stripped of social distinctions that a kind of elemental human
solidarity must surely prevail amongst them. Surely power in such places would be concentrated solely in the hands of the guards or those who employ them, while the prisoners exist as a powerless uniform mass, voiceless and compliant and denied even bodily integrity and self-autonomy? “Ghosts of the civil dead” is probably the most apt description of the imprisoned.

In fact, as in any society or human group, power within prisons is a very dynamic phenomenon that shifts and changes and sometimes alters the balance and nature of control. It also manifests itself in crude hierarchies of power amongst
prisoners themselves, class systems almost that create another layer of oppression in prison. Read the rest of this entry »

Rotterdam: Van Omme & De Groot construction contractors attacked during No Border camp (Holland)

August 18th, 2013

On 10th August under cover of darkness we targeted the construction contractors Van Omme & De Groot for their involvement in the building of Rotterdam detention centre. The slogan ‘Fuck Deportation!’ was sprayed upon the shutters covering the windows and paint bombs filled with generous amounts of bright paint were thrown, ruining the ever so posh wooden door of the arrogant planners of incarceration. This action was an autonomous action taken upon by ourselves separate from the planned No Borders camp during the same week.

It is one thing to shout “no borders, no nations, stop deportation” but an entirely more effective act to physically attack those who make such a hell for migrants exist. We are also aware that our action alone will not bring an end to the detention/deportation profiteers, but it is a retaliation against those involved in such torturous places that think they can operate with impunity. Our action is in solidarity with all those dwelling in detention centres in fortress Europe, be it Rotterdam, Calais, UK, Italy or Greece. You are never forgotten. To those who make such places of violence possible, you are not forgotten either, we know of you and what you do.

Cardiff: Solidarity with squats under attack in Greece and raids in Berlin (Wales)

August 18th, 2013

On August 5th cops in Greece continued their campaign of repression against squats by raiding three squatted spaces in Patras: Parartima, Maragopouleio and the Self-managed Hangout inside the Technological Educational Institute (TEI). 16 comrades were detained in total; 5 squatters and 11 supporters.

While those showing solidarity were later released, the 5 occupants faced charges in court on the 13th. Therefore the next day we painted a banner to express our solidarity with squatters facing charges and evicted from their homes. Read the rest of this entry »

‘My adventures with Interpol’ by Pyotr Silaev (Spain, Finland, Russia)

August 16th, 2013

On 22 August 2012, the anti-fascist Pyotr Silaev was arrested in Grenada. He is an activist in anti-governmental protests, and the author of the book “Exodus” (published in Finland, Greece, Italy and Germany), under the pseudonym DJ Stalingrad. Pyotr took part in the infamous protests in Khimki, which for some protestors ended in jail or hospital (as it did for the renowned journalist Oleg Kashin, who was attacked with baseball bats near his home). Around 400 young people threw stones and flares at the administrative office of the town in protest against the construction of the Moscow – St. Petersburg highway through the Khimki forest – one of the few remaining green oases around Moscow. The situation bore some similarity to the recent events in Istanbul. Read the rest of this entry »

Berlin: Demo in solidarity with comrades raided by police on August 14th (Germany)

August 15th, 2013

According to first reports, there were huge police raids on eight house projects and apartments in Berlin, including the Rigaer 94, this morning (14/8). The cops are supposedly looking for people responsible for attacks on various job centers (‘welfare offices’) as well as a recent molotov attack against police, who were conducting a drug raid in Köttbusser Tor during a solidarity demonstration for the revolt in Turkey. More news as it comes…Below is a call for spontaneous demonstration in response to the raids:

This morning, August 14th, 2013, cops raided several apartments in the Mitte, Kreuzberg and Neukölln neighbourhoods of Berlin.

In Friedrichshain the police deployed a riot squad, along with special task force troops to invade the house project Rigaer Straße 94 [whose front building was already stormed by cops on August 2nd].

The pretext for these raids were actions against several branches of the Job Center that took place in Berlin on May 2nd, as well as a solidarity action with the people revolting in Turkey after the eviction of Gezi Park in Istanbul. Read the rest of this entry »
