EtnikoBandido Infoshop

The kick starter of the info-tour and performance of the Beehive collective and Test their Logik/Crimethinc collective was happen at EtnikoBandido Infoshop last January 6,2014.

Approximately, at 2pm we started the event by introducing solar power alternative energy initiated by Mobile Anarchist School. We had a basic and actual workshop/seminar on this kind of technology to almost 15 participants that we invited. The solar power workshop were intended for the four individuals who will be volunteering themselves for the new found Solar Guerilla Autonomous Responds Team so a clear information on this solar power equipment need to demonstrate and discuss. Because we see the importance of this solar power technology, we also open this to other interesting individual who wants to know and get a practical knowledge on how solar power works.

‘FAI / ELF New Horizons of Burning Rage’ take responsibility for media sabotage (UK)

January 4th, 2013


FAI/ELF COMMUNIQUE FOR TV & RADIO BLACKOUT

As part of the ongoing anarchist war for total liberation, we carried out a hit on the Bathampton radio and TV relay station. Fires were set at four points of the structures, and we left undisturbed. As a result of the sabotage, on top of causing hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of damage, we regionally shut down all TV channels on Freeview as well as all national analogue and digital radio stations. Additionally it took down Vodaphone and other mobile networks, damaging police communications and other digital services. 80,000 homes and businesses in the area were affected.

The entertainment industry is an important tool to manipulate human behaviour.
Without a steady supply of distractions it would be much harder to persuade people that their lives are satisfactory, to convince them to keep going to work or in whatever way to reproduce the system. So to deprive the network of the ability to offer this essential means of escape from chronic modern stress, anxiety, frustration and dissatisfaction is to undermine the smooth running of society, however temporarily.

There are many soft targets and many lo-tech methods available for us malcontents who gladly choose conflict over despair. This gives rise to the prospect of rebellion with thousands of faces, with infinite reasons to blockade and destroy whatever stands between us and our goals. We want to experience harmony as a living planet, face to face encounter as intimate circles of proud and free-thinking individuals, and a chance to mould an existence filled with wild play and fierce joy. Our first response when faced with today’s crushing domination and a subservient society will always be outbreaks of disorder, refusal and beauty.

Our comrades from far and wide who also carry this fight share our thoughts so closely that often their words could be ours. So when they are kidnapped and held far away from us our determination is only further fuelled. Following many actions in Italy the state has unleashed a wave of repression against anarchists and their projects (Operations Ardire, Mangiafuoco, Ixodidae, Thor…), some across borders, accusing some of attacks of the FAI (Informal Anarchist Federation) and raising a trophy for the media-judicial circus: Nicola Gai and Alfredo Cospito, who they claim are FAI / Olga Cell. But if the prosecutors thought for one minute that they had dismantled the group even in Italy with their operations, another cell soon proved them wrong with an attack on the banking system in the capital, followed by grid sabotage in Indonesia, gunshots in Mexico, liberations in Russia, bombing in Greece, mass arson in Argentina, to name but a few. The new anarchist guerrillas laugh in the faces of the powerful because the repression is only throwing petrol on the fires of the open leaderless resistance.

We are on the side of everyone who has burnt stuffy textbooks and taken the offensive to reanimate an anarchy that had turned to dust in so many throats. Any rebel’s capture becomes yet another motive to strike, as we have before and will again, as a reminder of the social cost of their imprisonment.

This action carried out eight years to the day since Xosé Tarrio (a dignified prisoner of Spain’s FIES isolation units, against which a series of attacks last decade were later claimed by the first generation of the FAI) died in the cells, leaving his blood on the hands of the jailers, courts and cops.

Updates on the trial of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire in Athens (Greece)

January 4th, 2013

Translated by Act for freedom now/boubourAs

Update on the trial of the C.C.F.
Sessions 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 , 14, and 15 , 2012

In these sessions most lawyers completed their speeches concerning the objections but also the proposition made by the prosecutor during the 12th session.
On 3/12 /12 (session 11) one of the comrades of the Conspiracy made a statement after the speech of one of the appointed lawyers and said the following:
“I want to clarify some things. First of all, I very carefully heard the speech of the advocate and despite that we come from two different spaces, as he said, since we have chosen the path of anarchist illegal insurrection and he has chosen the path of legality, I really appreciate some things which he said and I really see that he worked a lot on approaching the core of the thought of our organization, the CCF. And in many thing he said, although I am no legal expert and not only that, but I demean the laws, I recognize the approach he made and I have no disagreement concerning that. But, I want to make a clarification for some things that remain. I want to clarify something in the name of our organization, the CCF, because something was said in relation to the R.O 17 November organization. It is not a reproach to the advocate. Besides, he clarified that what he said is his own personal opinion, perception, idea.
But because nothing should remain unanswered, flawed and meteor in this procedure, we must stress the following.
With the R.O. 17N -and I stress the words, because it was a Revolutionary Organization- we clearly have some differences concerning our perceptive field or our ideas in some individual matters, but these matters do not concern the court, neither are they matters for a juridical room. With these people who took the political responsibility and remain unrepentant -because there are unrepentant 17N members- connects us a friendship and comradeship. Therefore, we will clarify that the CCF, although coming from the anarchist urban guerrilla and has no connection with the Marxist structures, despite all this sees, and feels immediate affinity with comrades such as those of the 17N. And I want to stress something else, because a reference to homicide was heard. I think homicide, not concerning its potential evaluation, but also on how much the meaning of homicide, which I translate into the meaning of political execution, applies by armed revolutionary organizations in Greece -the 17N and the Sect of Revolutionaries and other organization- it is a part which we absolutely adopt, because it is a means of struggle of the anarchist armed action. Life on its own is not dignity on its own. Life is a value based on the choices made by everyone. Thus, whichever comrades chose to arm themselves and expose themselves by executing officers of authority, we are next to them. It is a choice adopted by the CCF as well. I want this to be stated and remain about the perception the CCF has”.

Most members of the CCF do not appear in the court room refusing to “impersonate” the role of the accused. As they have explained in a previous session they will appear in pairs exclusively in order to intervene in case some witness or judge tries to slander the CCF. Anyway, as stated by the comrades, as anarchists of praxis they do not respect any state justice and do not recognize any law which will try them.

Tuesday 18/12
Before the 15th session began there was tension in the court room between the cops and members of the CCF. Specifically, when the comrades of the CCF went to greet their friends and family in the court room the cops formed a “human” wall blocking any communication. At one point a cop pushed the friend of a comrade resulting in the intensification of the situation. Immediately the comrades the members of the CCF moved towards him pushing him and swearing him while one of them spit a piece of gum in his face. The rest of the cops tried to disengage their colleague and in the end let the friends and family to greet the comrades of the Conspiracy.
In the legal part of the trial the speeches of the lawyers concerned the objections.

Athens: Anarchist comrade of CCF member Panagiotis Argirou reportedly injured in Koridallos prison and hospitalized

After conversation with a relative of anarchist Panagiotis Argirou, solidarians reported that the comrade fell out of the bunk bed at night, on January 1st, and gradually began to lose consciousness. He was evacuated from Koridallos prisons to Tzaneio hospital in Piraeus, and he might need to be admitted to another hospital soon. His injury appears to be quite severe, with bruises on the head.
The comrade has already been operated on the head last night 2/1/12 and had a hematoma removed.
He will remain in an induced coma until the end of the week because his situation is considered critical.
We are thinking of you always Panagiotis.

New Year’s Eve Brixton, London 31 December 2012 …almost midnight (UK)

January 4th, 2013

From actforfree:

Brixton, London, 31 December 2012

…almost midnight
The Gregorian calendar is moving towards the next chapter in the existence of those who mark time in the boredom of ritual …Suddenly they appear out of nowhere, a few people out of step, dressed in black. Unfurling banners, a strange light in their eyes, they unhurriedly conquer the urban high street and proceed towards Brixton prison. Surprise – a spontaneous barrage of recognition – claxons, shouts and clenched fists from passing cars and buses. Precious instants of reciprocated feelings:
FIRE TO THE PRISONS, FUCK THE POLICE!
At last a common language; a spark of life. To then disperse into tiny particles until we meet again. To attract, repulse, embrace and corrupt each other once more… Then the gloomy destination is reached. 800 invisible souls entombed within that monstrous edifice.
A cry into the darkness: Freedom!
Again: Freedom!!! …Response from the bowels of the State cannibal: Freedom!!!
Echoes in the night…Freedom!!!…Freedom!!! Odd fireworks are set off. Some flame-propelled plastic bags respond. At the perimeter the massive gate resists an onslaught of banging and kicking. Wild howls pierce the silence that that building has imposed on the surrounding night for almost 200 years. By the time the custodians of order arrive everyone is on their way. Each with their thoughts… Hearts and consciousness expanding throughout the reaches of the island universe of those who fight to subvert the existent. From inside the prison cells or in the open gulag under invisible stars. In their own way, each one was saying ‘I’m here!’ To the bosses of this world and those who defend their interests: Happy New Fear!

New Year’s Eve Noise Demo – Nottingham Prison (UK)

January 3rd, 2013

On New Year’s Eve around 30 people turned up outside the gates of Nottingham prison to make some noise and show solidarity with the people being held inside. We toured the perimeter of the fence with a sound-system, banging pots and pans against the side of the fence, chanting and shouting, whilst fireworks were set off and thrown over the walls.

A parent of one of the prisoners had this to say afterwards:
‘‘Thanks very much for doing this. My son says it’s fucking amazing and when he heard the shouting he said it made him smile. Too many working class boys are in prison and it’s all because everything is unequal and the rich ones are taking the piss. But it’s great that you did that and that people inside heard. Love and respect to all of you’’.

This was just one of many prisoner solidarity demos that happened around the world on New Year’s Eve. The prison system is a brutal and violent means of repression and control by the state that needs to be challenged and resisted in our struggle for freedom. Noise demos are just one small way of breaking the isolation that prisoners are subjected to, letting them know that they are not forgotten.

Letter of Felicity Ryder from clandestinity on the recent conditional release of Mario López from the Mexican prisons

January 3rd, 2013

To my brother Mario,

Six months have passed since you were kidnapped that night out of bad luck, since you were tortured and threatened, since your family and friends were harassed. For six months they tried everything to break your acratist [anarchic] spirit – they locked your body within four walls and innumerable bars, away from the wild forests where you belong, but could not penetrate your mind at all times that you were close to your comrades in affinity across the world. They made you undergo pain, but your willingness to fight always won.

They tried to hinder your advocates in affinity, in order to stop them from expressing their solidarity with you, not realizing that a couple of male strangers lurking in the shadows at dawn and some empty death threats would not be able to stop those who are willing to fight alongside you. They sent their prisoners-traitors to do you harm, but the solidarity which was sown always proved stronger. During these months you mocked the enemy, enduring the pain, incertitude and torture of the confinement of a savage individual, and each long second you clung tight to your convictions. You used all your bursting energy to propagate freedom in every step, succeeding even in such an infertile place to continue the analysis of our insurrectional struggle, without ever stopping to fight, even for a second, for freedom and anarchy.

Today, when you step out on the street again, you should know that you were never actually deprived of your freedom — all this time you were free, because despite everything they tried, they weren’t and will never be able to take away the freedom that runs through your veins, through our veins. I know very well that this is far from over —we are all aware of the deceptions and vengeance that consist the very essence of the State— but I realize that your comrades stand beside you, and your indomitable spirit for anarchy can only grow even stronger.

Just like you, I wish that all our comrades who are either prisoners or fugitives in Mexico, Italy, Chile, Greece, Bolivia, Germany, Spain, Switzerland and all over the world can also walk on the street today, enter their homes and embrace their loved ones. And although they proudly endure incarceration and incertitude, they are also with us at all times.

Forward, comrade; there is still so much to be done…

Your sister in affinity,
Felicity

Amsterdam: New Year’s Eve anti-prison demo at Schiphol deportation camp (Holland)

January 3rd, 2013

Last night a group of people went to make noise at the new location of the Schiphol deportation prison (Amsterdam). It is an international tradition on New Year’s Eve to go to the prisons to break the silence and isolation.

In the new Schiphol prison ‘De Poort’ over 1,000 people will be locked up. Even more cells for a murderous system. Last night, recorded messages from the RefugeeChurch —a squatted church inhabited by illegal (undocumented) people in Amsterdam— were broadcasted for the people inside.

In the Netherlands there are thousands of people locked up because they don’t have (the right) papers, in even worse conditions than the normal prisons. People are being kept for months and then either deported or kicked out on to the street for being ‘practically not deportable,’ and a couple of months later the circus starts again. The ones deciding on these ‘measurements’ are the few inventing laws everybody should bend for; they’re the ones making money from repression.

The whole prison system is based on their need for regulating and controlling ‘society’. People are being locked up just because they don’t fit into that society, don’t contribute enough in economical terms, or just to scare people. For the State it’s about protecting the rich and the order, to maintain exploitation and suppression.

That’s why we will keep coming back to make our solidarity with the prisoners heard.

Until everybody is free, until borders and prison walls don’t exist any longer.
For a rebellious New Year!

Report-back from Montreal New Year’s Anti-prison Demo (Canada)

January 2nd, 2013

Over 50 people gathered in Montreal to carry on the tradition of anti-prison noise demos at prisons on the new year. The demo assembled at the designated meeting place and took to the streets behind a banner reading “Pour un monde sans patrons, ni flics, ni prisons” (for a world without bosses, nor cops, nor prisons) with a heavy police escort trying in vain to control traffic. Some of the crowd distributed flyers explaining the action and detailing the recent legislative changes the government has designed to fill up the 22 new prisons they are building.

When we reached our first destination, the Tanguay women’s prison, the chanting crowd entered through the open gate across a parking lot while the pigs held back at the entrance. Around the back entrance many speeches were given over a mega-phone addressed to the prisoners in hopes of them hearing the words of solidarity in both French and English.
Bursts of chants, horns and fireworks were used to get the attention of our friends inside. Soon into the visit we heard calls of response from the windows, “Bonne année” (happy new year) which fired up even more noise and love from the crowd. The crowd spent 20 minutes exchanging chants of solidarity and well wishing with the women before promising to return and marching on to our next target. Read the rest of this entry »

NYE noise demonstration, Cardiff prison (UK)

January 2nd, 2013

Last night as part of the international call out for noise demonstrations outside of prisons and detention centers, a group of anarchists and anti-authoritarians assembled at cardiff prison where some people set off fireworks and scattered hundreds of fliers from the top of the multi-storey car park opposite the jail (which is visible from many of the cells in the prison) whilst others sounded a siren, banged drums, threw fireworks over the wall of the prison and participated in anti-prison and anti-police chants with the prisoners who did everything they could to communicate back to the crowd gathered outside.

The fliers read “Solidarity is our weapon – Freedom now!” on one side and “Fire to the prisons, fire to the borders and fire to those who protect the system that’s killing us all. ACAB” on the other.

The initial group made a speedy and tactical retreat after noticing the approaching filth accompanied by a fire engine heading towards the prison. Roughly an hour later a small group returned to set off the last firework and shout some more in support of those inside.

- some anarchists.

Athens: 27/6/12 – Full communiqué for the high-profile vehicle-bomb against Microsoft by Deviant Behaviours for the Spread of Revolutionary Terrorism – International Revolutionary Front (Greece)

December 31st, 2012

325 receives and transmits:

Download PDF version

On Wednesday, June 27, at dawn, we attacked the headquarters of Microsoft with a vehicle-bomb. We drove through the main entrance and detonated the bomb van in the building, with about 150 litres of gasoline as a gift. Throughout the course of the operation the team ensured that no one would be in any danger, and, contrary to the assertions of several newspapers, they did not use firearms to immobilize the security personnel. It was an act of war against the widespread insidious silence and captivity generated by this modern world.

“Caught in prison-society…”

Growing up and wasting time and every minute of our lives in the great prison, in the city where they suffocate million people with anxiety and stress. It’s crazy and nonsense that so many people are crammed like zombies, like canned sardines in the giant cities. In factories, in their jobs, in artificial parks, in front of televisions, in the ranks of the unemployment offices, at checkouts. To have and to blackmail.

The rates here are predatory, blackmailing dilemmas, more suffocating than ever; psychiatric drugs
off-the-shelf and anti-depressants cure every patient of the modern lifestyle.

Asylums, psychiatrists and psychologists, prisons, are they not cages like the filthy flats and apartment blocks, who in their own cannibalistic way, imprison human emotion, vitality and energy?

Are not the crowded malls, noisy streets and the constant drone of horns of those who are rushing to gain a minute and get faster to work, school or important meetings?

Is prison not all around you? Read the rest of this entry »

A communiqué from imprisoned anarchist Elisa, who is undertaking hunger strike in solidarity with Marco Camenisch (Italy)

December 30th, 2012

From informa-azione.info - Translation act for freedom now/B.pd

We receive and transmit a communiqué from Elisa, an anarchist comrade imprisoned since June 13 following operation ‘Ardire’.

To all those who don’t stop struggling

6 months after my arrest (‘Operation Ardire’… June 13 2012… Ordinance of the prosecution of Perugia) I announce that I am going to undertake a second round of hunger strike from 22nd December to 29th December. This is a protest for the release of our brother and comrade in the struggle Marco Camenisch. The protest is being carried out by a number of comrades taking turns (besides me and dear comrade Gabriel Pombo da Silva I still don’t know which other comrades are taking part in the protest… here I won’t dwell on organizational difficulties or on the ‘bad tricks’ of censorship).
Is this symbolic hunger strike or is it undertaken to make a claim? I no longer know, I’m no longer interested! Read the rest of this entry »

On December 29th, at about 1am, our comrade Mario López ‘Tripa’ hit the streets again. With the help of solidarians, Mario paid the bail that was set for his release, so he will now await trial in ‘freedom’.

Thanks so much to all those who, one way or another, have supported this struggle. We still need to take many comrades out of prisons. Freedom for Braulio Duran, who is remanded in León!

Down with the walls of prisons!
Strength to all comrades who are imprisoned or on the run!

‘In any case, no regret’ by RadioAzione (Italy)

December 25th, 2012

In recent months, in spite of countless investigations and trials against a great number of anarchist comrades all over the world, solidarity with imprisoned comrades has made remarkable progress everywhere. Solidarity weeks and actions have been following one another for months and “solidarity” is increasingly becoming something more than a written word.

Not only has the informal FAI expressed their solidarity through an uproar of explosive powder but also many other groups, at times set up only for the occasion, have done so… through the heat of fire that burnt numerous symbols and pillars of State-Capital all over the world. However, as far as Italy is concerned, this roar is not being exposed openly, on the contrary, papers, websites and blogs are keeping it hidden or are overshadowing it. Perhaps this is due to fear of being involved in future investigations or due to other reasons… perhaps it is better to talk about ‘distant’ or ‘more presentable’ struggles rather than being committed to spreading communiqués, claims and actions concerning one’s own country. Some of the imprisoned comrades are receiving open support, whereas others are kept at a distance because they are considered ‘pests’.

As far as RadioAzione is concerned, we prefer to give solidarity to all the comrades, even those who don’t have affinity with us, and complicity to few of them without fearing of getting ‘polluted’.
If one thinks one is risking less if one only talks about less radical struggles, this is wrong (consider for example the heavy sentences inflicted for the Genoa G8 or the months in prison or under house arrest for the demos against the TAV).

In June the ‘Ardire’ investigation carried out by the prosecution of Perugia led to the arrest of many comrades. The goals of this investigation were two-fold:

- To prevent Marco Camenisch from being released and to make Gabriel Pombo da Silva’s transfer more difficult to be achieved.

- To silence with imprisonment those who had given voice to actions and communiqués in their blogs.

Needless to say, various public prosecutors invent a number of fanciful details in order to make ordinances of remand in custody effective: this is a well known practice and, honestly, those who are writing these lines are not interested in dwelling on this aspect or examine the thesis of our hangmen.
What we are interested in, is never taking a single step back but always one forward! Up to a few months ago the blog of RadioAzione was being updated but not as regularly as it is now. The Dirette d’Azione had no regular updating but viewers could know the date and time of broadcasting. In particular, the operation ‘Ardire’ has made it necessary to change our plans for both the blog and the radio. Among great difficulties we are trying to keep the blog updated every day and at the same time we are trying to keep in touch with many comrades all over the world. Live programmes (Dirette d’Azione) have been broadcast twice for a couple of weeks, in the same days and at the same time.

The most important thing for those involved in this project is to give voice to the imprisoned comrades (with affinity pieces of writing) and to direct actions and claims, to the face of some ‘Comodi-no’ [Comodi is the public prosecutor of operation ‘Ardire’; comodino means ‘bedside table’, TN] which would like to become ‘Comò’ [which means ‘chest of drawers’, TN], but which in the end will turn to a shoe racks full of shoes ready to kick her arse [Comodi is a woman prosecutor, TN].

RadioAzione, therefore, will continue to give voice to radical struggles against the existent, without problems or worries. Prison, house arrest and investigations didn’t manage to affect my ideas… let alone the ‘threat’ of possible incoming investigations.

And what if this should happen? Since I realized what I want, I have always remembered a sentence: ‘In any case, no regret’.

Solidarity with all the imprisoned comrades all over the world! Complicity with a few of them! Fire to all prisons! Freedom for all! For insurrection, for anarchy!

Freedom and Solidarity to Marie Mason on her 51st Birthday (USA)

December 23rd, 2012

Marie Mason is an eco-prisoner condemned with a long prison punishment by the American regime.

Marie Mason’s 51st birthday is coming up on January 26, 2013. We are asking that folks hold events for Marie around her birthday as part of what will be an annual time to celebrate her life and keep her spirits up while she remains imprisoned.

We know that the mid-winter holidays are a busy time for everyone, but they are a sad time for the prisoners who remain inside – and everyone wants some cheer on their birthday! So we hope that folks can find time to plan a small event for Marie, such as a letter-writing or birthday party. (If time permits, we recommend that you might want to hold letter writings a week or more earlier so the cards can reach her before the 26th.) Read the rest of this entry »

Announcement of Athens IMC collective, 22.12.2012 (Greece)

December 23rd, 2012

via contrainfo:

On Thursday, December 20th, 2012 Nikos Stavrakakis, president of the POSDEP (the so-called Pan-Hellenic Federation of University Professors–Researchers’ Associations), made sobbing statements about the occurrence of violence inside Greece’s faculties, asking the State to wipe away any occupied space in universities but also to get rid of Indymedia Athens. These statements were made under the pretext of two incidents at the National Technical University of Athens (Metsovio) and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Aristotelio), incidents which are not connected with each other and have obviously no relation whatsoever with the administration crew of Athens IMC.

Athens: Responsibility claim for sabotage against 14 bank ATMs on the 6th of December (Greece)

December 23rd, 2012

via contrainfo

December 21st, 2012
“When praxis meets theory…”

Four years later, murders, tortures, imprisonments and prosecutions of fighters are continued at the hands of the State.

State repression unfolds itself in all its glory, from the daily 8pm news bulletins to the streets where cops prevail.

Fascism is alive and being fed by the daggers of neo-Nazis but also behind the closed doors of house apartments-cages, where the greatness of the sacred ‘family’ institution reaches manhood.

The society doesn’t want to know, doesn’t want to remember.

Four years after the December insurgency, the fire still burns.

On Thursday the 6th of December 2012, in the early morning hours, we sabotaged 14 bank ATMs in the Athens districts of Gyzi, Alexandras Avenue, Patission and Evelpidon streets, plugging them up with polyurethane foam and pasting stickers on their screen that read ‘Closed due to the 6th of December.’

We choose to take action by creating direct action cells, because we’re among those who are not satisfied with simply lighting candles over headstones.

We break the inertia of an enervated society which is accommodated in its slump. Its rotten carcass shudders hedonically at the idea of getting back the ‘privileges’ of the miserable life it had before the ‘crisis,’ not minding whether the fascists or the Left will give them back.

As for you passive asshole, who got used to the role of spectator, we fuck your normality. There’s neither money nor shopping for you today (after two weeks, some ATMs are still broken down).

Finally, we believe that such actions can be carried out by anyone, as long as there’s determination. The more the state and parastatal violence is increasing, the more counter-violence should be increased.

PS.1: Our entire operation was completed under the cops’ nose; you stupid coppers (baskines) passed three times in front of us and luckily for you, you didn’t stop us.

PS.2: Greetings and love to our four-legged comrade. We thank him very much for his valuable help.

PS.3: Stalinist scumbags of Perissos (headquarters of the Greek ‘communist’ party), you made reference to the events of the December revolt only to use them to your advantage, despite the fact that you had not only been absent but also polemicist to the riots; you shit must know that we don’t buy your lies. We lived in December ’08. We were born and shaped by the insurgency.

Comradely regards and all our solidarity to:

- the Militant Minority

- the Informal Anarchist Federation/International Revolutionary Front (FAI/IRF)

- the Earth Liberation Front (ELF)

- the International Arsonist Union

- the Autonomous Cells/CCF-Russia

- the imprisoned members of the CCF in Greece and anarchist Theofilos Mavropoulos

- all street rascals (alania) that clash with the State and its minions in Chile, Mexico, Greece and all over the world

- all anarchist hostages

- finally, to all those who contribute to translate these texts and spread the word across the globe.

A request from the prison of Alessandria 10.12.2012 (Italy)

December 22nd, 2012

From RadioAzione - Tr. actforfree/B.pd

I receive and publish this request from two comrades locked-up in the AS2 unit of the prison of Alessandria:

Let’s break isolation! We ask the comrades to send us all new publications of the anarchist movement in Italian, English and Spanish. We also ask those who have printed leaflets, posters and articles on our case to send them us and to keep us updated on the struggles carried out in Greece, Mexico, Chile, Spain, Bolivia, etc. For anarchy forever!

Anarchist prisoners conduct hunger strike in solidarity with Marco Camenisch, who is still held in the Swiss dungeons (Germany & Italy)

December 22nd, 2012

From Contrainfo:

RadioAzione reports that, as of December 15th, imprisoned comrade Gabriel Pombo Da Silva is on hunger strike in solidarity with anarchist Marco Camenisch, who is facing yet another proceeding starting from scratch regarding his just request for conditional release.

Gabriel will be on strike in the prison of Aachen, Germany, until the 21st of December. Then it will be the turn of comrade Elisa Di Bernardo, who is held in the prison of Rebibbia, Italy. She will conduct hunger strike in the week from the 22nd to the 29th of December. A confirmation of a third round is awaited, which will likely include a strike by comrade Sergio Maria Stefani, incarcerated in the prison of Alessandria, Italy.

As Gabriel already suggested, the solidarity strike can be continued even in January 2013, if fellow prisoners are willing and able to participate in this protest for the immediate liberation of Marco.

Elisa (editor of Culmine, along with prisoner Stefano Gabriele Fosco) as well as Sergio are among the eight comrades who have been remanded in custody in the context of ‘Operation Boldness (Ardire)’. The particular anti-anarchist construct was initiated by the Italian State in June 2012, and implicates Marco and Gabriel, too, among others.

To all the comrades outside the prison walls, who want to feel closeness with Marco and other imprisoned anarchists: you do just that; let solidarity with imprisoned comrades shine.

Strength to prisoners in struggle!
