Athens: Fighting Minority / Commando Alexandros Grigoropoulos take responsibility for burning the personal cars of ex-minister of Economy and National Defence, Giannos Papandoniou (Greece)

December 14th, 2012

7/12/2012

We claim the responsibility for the incendiary attack at the house of ex-minister of Economy and National Defence, Giannos Papandoniou. We arrived outside the door of his mansion on Olympias street in Kifissia and torched the two cars used by him and his “wife” Roula Kourakou for their meaningless movements. The personal guard the pig has could not ensure the security he seeks. Although our thoughts flirted constantly with the image of the flaming mansion and the terrorized Papandoniou and his “wife” looking for a way out, we had from the beginning eliminated such an idea since inside the mansion is also their young child which we did not want to put in any danger.

Far from a populist rhetoric we identify in the face of Giannos Papandoniou an officer of authority. We are not interested in listing the dodgy things he has done, although he surely has done many. Either way, corrupted or not corrupted, state officers, irrelevantly if they hold their positions in the state mechanism, are a permanent target for the insurrectionist dignities. We carried out our attack on the same night when four years ago cops murdered comrade Alexandros Grigoropoulos. Four years ago and someone left early, a cry of death which detonated the insurrection and the incidents we all know, four years later on the same day, a large fire and a few explosions outside the house of a stated enemy re-ignite our hate and unleash the terror towards the desirable direction. Through personal attacks we desire to burglarize their safe territorial zones in their lives. Their houses, their cars, their prodigal life. Read the rest of this entry »

Solidarity with Alfon, jailed after the pan-European general strike of 14-N (Spain)

December 13th, 2012

Solidarity with Alfon, only one arrested remaining in jail after the paneuropean strike on 14-N: new Spanish political prisoner.

Spain – kingdom of satraps, thieves and butchers. The number of political prisoners rises in Europe. After the first pan-European strike on 14-N there is still one person in jail. It is not a coincidence, as Alfonso Fernandez, Alfon, like his mother, are well know as activists. His detention was not fortuitous, 100m from his home door, accompanied by his girlfriend. Hours of police interrogatories every two hours, tortures and death threats made by hooded terrorists. And as always police manipulation and political interest. The government can’t break his decision to fight, neither of his family. Read the rest of this entry »

Updates and considerations on Nicola and Alfredo’s arrest by Anna Beniamino (Italy)

December 7th, 2012

From RadioAzione – Translated by act for freedom now/B.pd

Nicola Gai and Alfredo Cospito were arrested on September 14 2012 and accused of being the perpetrators of Ansaldo [Nucleare] manager Roberto Adinolfi’s wounding, an action which occurred on May 7 2012 in Genoa and claimed by the Olga FAI/FRI nucleus in the following days. Genoa prosecutors Silvio Franz and Nicola Piacente ordered the arrest with the charge of ‘attack with purposes of murder ‘(art. 280 of the penal code), and justified the demand for remand in custody of the two comrades following investigation results which ‘indicate’ risk of escape and reiteration of the crime (the mere awareness of being investigated becomes here instrumental evidence of guilt, coherence with one’s anarchist principles becomes a sign of dangerousness).

New Years Eve: International Anti-Prison Demos & Actions

December 5th, 2012

New-years-eve to the prisons!
Everywhere to the deportation and detention centers!

Noise demonstrations in front of prisons are an ongoing tradition at many places in this world to remember those who are detained by the state. A way to showing solidarity with the people who are imprisoned. In front of prisons and deportation centers, where people are imprisoned who face deportation, who have the wrong or no papers. We come together to break the loneliness and isolation.

This prisonsystem is not reformable because it´s wrong from its whole existence. Here and everywhere.

It doesn’t form “better people” or help to solve social conflicts. The ruling system of competition and inequity detains people and deport them.
On the one hand to get rid of everything “problematic”, on the other hand to frighten those who search desperate for freedom.

Whether humans are imprisoned because of stealing or destroying private property, dodged the fare or flee in fear of prosecution in their homecountry – everything bases on the same cacti: the existing world, defined by the ruling norms telling us what´s wrong and right, what has to be protected and what to be punished.

Laws and rules that where made by a few and under which everyone has to knuckle down. This logic of penalty and detention has to be destroyed.
For us the destruction of all prisons is only possible in a process which overthrows the ruling condition, to create a world without exploitation an oppression.

Wherever you are, meet on new year’s eve at the prisons, to be loud and and to give the idea of a free world without domination an expression in the streets.
We want to use our solidarity and mutual aid to tear down the walls stone by stone.
We want a world without walls and borders.
We will fight together:
until everyone is free!

“Do not say that we are few; just say that we are determined” – by the R.O. CCF and Theofilos Mavropoulos (Greece)

December 2nd, 2012

via contrainfo:

Contribution of the nine imprisoned members of the R.O. CCF and anarchist prisoner Theofilos Mavropoulos to an international anarchist meeting convened under the insurrectional perspective (Zurich, 10–13 November 2012)

“Do not say that we are few.. Just say that we are determined..”

The question is not whether we are more or less poor, but whether we live in a way that does not contain us. We do not want to repeat things that have already been said.

We have banished from our minds the idea of central governance, and we do not believe in legends about the phantom of the proletariat. We are thus neither faced with an isolated State, which allegedly gives commands from the palaces of its Power, nor with a society that is waiting to be awakened in order to revolt. Today’s society is a pervasive social factory that produces attitudes, values, ethics and habits.

Today’s society works like a social death machine, which devours time, space, emotions and consciousnesses. The centre of the State and the heart of the system are dispersed in millions of small and large representations of Power in our everyday lives. They lie at the language we speak, the images of advertisements, the architecture of the cities, the virtual reality of technology, the people-centered civilization, the firearms of cops, the national symbols of fascists, the locks of private property, the standards we fall in love with, the walls of prisons.

Solidarity with Alessio del Sordo: anarchist comrade and political prisoner (Italy)

December 2nd, 2012

From Tarcoteca:

Alessio del Sordo, anarchist comrade, has always been a committed activist. In prison after the crackdown against NoTAV resistance of Jan26. The Italian political police, the DIGOS, has always been very aware, so it is of the few people still in jail even though the rest have been released. As so often we find a police set whose sole purpose is the domestication and control over the people in their desire to create slaves.

Faced with a new punishment moving to other prison we publish a letter of August 23 so you can see how far the power of a person to preserve his dignity. The puerile attempt by the state to break their will and eliminate its membership is having the opposite effect expected, creating solidarity circles beyond the struggle for liberation.

Letter from Gabriel Pombo da Silva (Germany)

November 29th, 2012

Actforfreedomnow/ Read English version here. 325 receives and transmits:

Aachen, Noviembre 2012

“Nosotros vivimos más allá del bien y del mal, porque todo lo que es grande pertenece a la belleza!
También el “delito”, también la “perversidad”, también el “dolor”!
Y nosotros deseamos ser grandes como nuestro “delito”!
Para no calumniarlo.
Deseamos ser grandes como nuestra “perversidad”!
Para volverla consciente.
Deseamos ser grandes como nuestro dolor!
Para serle DIGNOS. Porque venimos de lo alto.
De la casa de la belleza..

Renzo Novatore

Con toda seguridad sea esta belleza infinita, compañer@s, aquello que le “reprochan” los llamados “servicios sociales” de la cárcel de Lenzburg a nuestro hermano Marco Camenisch. Su dignidad y grandeza debe ser una terrible amenaza para quienes se han acostumbrado a ejercer un poder absoluto sobre una población inerme y sin ningún tipo de conciencia política, como son los presos en el pequeño país Helvético.
Reproche y “temor”, pues ya se sabe lo que sucede cuando los “símbolos” se vuelven “ejemplos” y los “ejemplos” camino…camino a seguir.

En la diminuta y poderosa Suiza (donde Marco es el único prisionero político) l@s sum@s inquisido@s del dominio ya no se contentan con el secuestro del cuerpo durante décadas de nuestro compañero sino que pretenden (inútilmente) la “renuncia” de su espíritu combativo. No les “basta” que se hayan cumplido sus podridos y enfermizos “requisitos legales”, lo quieren absolutamente TODO!!!
Esta es la conclusión a la que he llegado después de haber leído el “Recurso de Apelación” presentado por su abogado Bernard Rambert en lo relativo a su excarcelación (libertad condicional) que hubiese debido efectuarse el pasado 7 de Mayo, después de haber “cumplido” las 2/3 partes de la condena máxima contemplada en este país.

Facto es que Marco lleva 21 años ininterrumpidamente desde que fué detenido en Italia el 5 de Noviembre de 1991 (después de 10 años en “búsqueda y captura” tras haberse fugado de la prisión de Pöschwies en 1981) y haber sido entregado (tras cumplir la condena en Italia) en el año 2001 al país Helvético…
Pese a tener todos los “requisitos legales” (omitiré aquí hablar de losmeramente “humanitarios”) para su libertad condicional, precisa, según parece, del “visto bueno” de los llamados “servicios sociales”, y esto es lo que reclaman de nuestro compañero los llamados “servicios sociales” y cito textualmente:

Se niega a “confrontarse con su pasado”
Se niega a aceptar “apoyo psicológico”
Se muestra “incoperativo”
Continúa manteniendo “contacto político con compañer@s de ideas”
Se niega a “distanciarse de su visión del mundo”
Y qué (por todo lo mencionado anteriormente) se “pronostica” un “elevado riesgo” de reincidencia en lo relativo a “delitos” de “asesinato”, “lesiones”, “atentados explosivos” y/o destrucción de estructuras públicas…

He traducido literalmente del alemán aquello que los redactores de este “informe” han escrito, lo único que yo le he añadido son las comillas. En cuanto a “Weltanschauung” puede traducirse como “ideales” y/o “visión del mundo”.

Yo pienso, herma@s, que cuando leáis los párrafos anteriores (lo que reclamas estos seres indignos de nuestro compañero) sentiréis arder en vuestra sangre lo mismo que yo he sentido cuando lo he leído… yo soy un hombre sencillo que os habla de igual a igual mirándoos a los ojos; no soy un político y tampoco un abogado, por eso no os pido “votos” ni “firmas” ni “peticiones”…No pido a mis herman@s más de lo que yo mismo no estaría dispuesto a hacer por cualquiera de vosotr@s en la misma situación. Predicar con el ejemplo siempre ha sido y será mi única “divisa”. Por eso deseo que sepáis que escribiéndome con la compañera Elisa (Di Bernardo) le he propuesto hacer una Huelga de Hambre rotativa (de una semana cada un@ reclamando la liberación inmediata de nuestro compañero Marco para el mes de Diciembre. El primer “turno” de esta HH solidaria sera el 1 de Diciembre al 8, y así sucesivamente. Por razones que ya expliqué a nuestra compañer a yo me cojo el tercer turno (del 15 al 22 de diciembre). Los compa ñeros presos que deseen sumarse a esta iniciativa deberann buscar la forma de hacerlo público..
Nosotros no vamos a mendigar ni a convencer a nadie a sumarse a esta iniciativa.
Quien lo desee ya sabe cómo actuar.

Ya me imagino a los “servicios” de todo tipo y color buscando en este nuevo “escrito/comunicado” más argumentos y razones para sus tribunales inquisitoriales.
A vosotr@s os digo sin ningún pudor: anda y que os jodan pendej@s!!!

“Lo terrible de verdad
es que te venza el miedo
Lo terrible es que no entiendas
que el precio de la libertad
no es nada
al lado de la opresión
Lo terrible es no luchar por tu dignidad
Lo terrible es ser como un gusano
que se deja aplastar
Lo terrible es la indiferencia
Lo terrible es vivir sólo para uno
Lo terrible es no tener esperanza
Lo terrible es no soñar…”

Oscar Fuentes (Estudiante asesinado en una protesta el 9 de Abril de 1985 en Santiago de Chile)

El apartado de saludos y abrazos es enorme no en vano la represión continúa a lo largo y lo ancho del mundo como lo hacen también las luchas (lo que siempre es un estímulo): a los hermanos de las CCF/FAI/FRI en Grecia y el mundo; a Nicola y Alfredo, recientemente detenidos en Italia y a la compañera Anna en arresto domiciliario; a nuestro hermano Tortuga que el 19 de Noviembre (día de mi 45 cumpleaños) se decidirá si lo vuelven a encerrar o no (suerte hermano!) a los compañeros del caso security, a los compañeros fugitivos, que vuestra libertad dure siempre: en fin, a tod@s l@s que luchan y han luchado: ayer, hoy y siempre…

Por una Navidad Negra! Por un invierno combativo! Marco libero!
Vivan los compañeros! Viva la Anarquía!

Gabriel

Call for solidarity actions on Tuesday November 27th

Raising Resistance: Solidarity with the Unist’ot’en.
Call for actions on Tuesday November 27th

In inspiring resistance this past week, the Unist’ot’en and Grassroots Wet’suwet’en have, yet again, evicted pipelines from their territories!

On November 20th, Wet’suwet’en Hereditary Chief Toghestiy intercepted and issued an eagle feather to surveyors from the Can-Am Geomatics company who were working for Apache’s proposed natural gas Pacific Trails Pipeline (PTP). In Wet’suwet’en law, an eagle feather is used as a first and only notice of trespass. The surveyors were ordered to leave the territory and the road leading into the territory has been closed to all industry activities until further notice. The materials that were left behind by the work crew are being held until Apache and PTP agree to open up appropriate lines of communication with the Unist’ot’en and grassroots Wet’suwet’en according to the Free Prior and Informed Consent protocol and laws of their unceded territories. The Unist’ot’en are against all pipelines slated to cross through their territories, which include Enbridge Northern Gateway, Kinder Morgans northern proposal, Pembina, and Spectra.

Letter from anarchist Mario “Tripa” Lopez about recent incidents of social war (Mexico)

November 23rd, 2012

Mario “Tripa” Lopez is an injured anarchist imprisoned in Mexico after being accidentally harmed by an incendiary device he was carrying.

Watching the latest news on TV and in the printed media, I have been able to see a series of events which, if we see them as an isolated manner could seem insignificant, but when seen as a whole, from the view of a conflict – even given the political discrepancies- we are met with a wider panorama of a social war in course, of a conflict which advances and that each time control seems to slip through the state´s fingers just that little bit more.

Starting with a news item from last Thursday, if I’m not mistaken, when a group of encapuchadxs1 stormed the representation of the state of Michoacán in Mexico City and occupied their offices for an amount of time.2 Last week a group of approximately fifty hooded people with cohetones3 blockaded Insurgentes Avenue, around the La Bombilla park, a clash with the police ensued and it was transmitted live and direct. One week before of all this, the news talked of clashes between Federal and State police and the normalistas4 in various points in Michoacán, who from some time ago have carried out blockades and taken buses by force as a pressure strategy. The images that were transmitted showed the clashes, with tear gas being thrown from one side and molotovs from the other. There were many buses burnt in the process.5

Also there were two police cars burnt and more than 100 detained, of which only eight were imprisoned; before this there was a report of three police cars burnt throughout various points in Mexicali, Baja California, seemingly with Molotov cocktails.6 In September, the news spoke of the actions which happened during the week of solidarity with prisoners of the Social War. In their reports they noted some of the communiqués, explicitly speaking about the actions – police cars burnt, banks bombed, attacks with firearms against the police etc. – that were lead in “protest” against the imprisonment of anarchists in Mexico and other countries. It also mentioned that these actions represent a response to acts considered “repressive” against a supposed network of international anarchist terrorism.

This response, by what is understood, was at an international level, which represents an indisputable qualitative growth in the fight against Power. A necessary response to the government´s offenses against the anarchists, nihilists, libertarians, fighters and social rebels who represent in some form a danger for Power and for the societies based on their norms and values. An anti-authoritarian response which transmits much strength, energy and support.

Now, the governor of Michoacán is trying to make us believe that the so-called (by him) “ultra radicals” aren´t residents of the state, but instead people belonging to groups outside of Michoacán and the normalista schools. According to him they are militants of opposing political parties as part of social groups, or “ultra radical elements” from Mexico City or belonging to the group denominated “Tenochtitlan” (the same “ultra-radicals” from Mexico City belonging to this inexistent group that are said to have attacked the offices of the Federal Commission of Electricity with explosives? Actions which they are trying to accuse me of?) Or do they now want to pull the “radicals” of the Oaxacan conflict of 2006 out of their sleeves- supposedly having now moved to Michoacán to create a climate of “instability” in the state? At all costs the government is seeking to justify their reaction fronted by a conflict that has “escaped from their hands”.

Personally, from my reading of the events – from the bombs to the barricades – all of these forms of confrontation form part of necessary action which reflects the incrimination of an anti-authoritarian conscience and of the growing refractionary attitude, although Power would like to present it to us as “glitches in the system”. In the specific case of Mexico City, all of these attacks are against the supposed “social peace” that the social democratic PRD government wants to sell us. According to the logic of Power, the Marginal neighborhoods with the high rate of “crime” have to be razed, when – with all our decisive critique against voluntary servitude- we have to recognize that these people are defending their vital and sustaining space.

Casually, I find myself in the same court as the 20 guys detained following the riots in the Tepito7 neighborhood on the day following my accident, and on hearing their stories it is clear to me that what happened there was nothing more than an action in self-defense against the every day theft of their lives, a well deserved violent response to the violent acts committed day by day by the police. It’s for this reason that, the same as for me, they are faced with the accusations of “attacks against the public peace” as well as attempted murder of police. Accusations which mean they are faced with sentences of between 7 and 47 years in prison. What do they want to achieve with this? An example punishment? Without a doubt, and guarding our distances, this reminds me of the riots in the marginal neighborhoods of Paris in 2006, regularly criticized but little understood.

All of these moments of conflict, whether politicized actions or not, not only make it obvious the inexistence of the system of supposed social well being, but also they show us that if it really existed, we would still fight against it, because we recognize that Power is the real enemy of all of us who aspire for Total Freedom.

However, even given the imminent state of control, there are still those who aren’t frightened, those who by day or by night, alone or collectively, with fire, fire-works, blockades, explosives or firearms, show that this is not the life we want, that – at least from our perspective- this system must be totally destroyed. Their damned social peace is a myth that they attempt to impose on us. Only conflict exists. The peace imposed by the system is the peace of cemeteries that they use to try to extinguish the anti-authoritarian fight. The acts of insurrection make it clear that it is necessary to keep on doing “something more than words”, that the conflict must extend. We must take the step from the “unconscious” insurrection to a conscious and generalized insurrection, propagate attack, put up barricades, destroy the economy, attack trade, conform dozens, hundreds, thousands of affinity groups. It’s clear that we have to take control of our lives and our spaces; to be able to achieve it there is no other way out than Social War.

This permanent conflictivity which I emphasize, part of our individuality, is a “counter-value” that is sparked when fronted with the values of the system, and that constructs itself day by day to question ourselves as individuals and to confront this concrete reality. It is to maintain standing a devastating critique against the system, re-appropriating once and for all our own lives. To live, to be, to relate to ourselves in a different way, to maintain ourselves in conflict with the existent, is to revolutionize every moment. An ¡Ai Ferri Corti con la vita! But also we have to translate the permanent conflictivity into a constant and fierce attack against the system of domination. That tension and the daily confrontation against a system which tries to reduce us to mere merchandise, that consequent practice – at least for me- is much more integral than the simple occasional “rebellion”, than the temporary protest, than the revolutionary pose. It is the moments of conflict which give expression and sense to our lives.

This permanent conflicitivity can never be assimilated by the system of domination, and much less recuperated in the reconstructive cycle of Power, because it is the natural scaffolding of Anarchy. From the moment we are born the state expropriates our lives and with that it also expropriates our critical capacity and our natural resource of self-defense; turning violence into a monopoly for the unique and exclusive use of Power, so that when the excluded and the self-excluded use it they can call it “terrorism”. Anti-systematic action, anti-authoritarian attack and permanent conflict make it clear that violence is also revolutionary, and that it necessarily has to be used at the moment we face the violence of the State.

Compañer@s, sisters and brothers of affinity, here inside prison – somewhat limited – I have no other way to contribute to the anarchist struggle other than by inciting agitation. In this sense, many of my letters, notes and communications are directed.

For the moment, I have nothing more than to add other than an enormous greeting of strength and solidarity to all the anarchist compañer@s prisoners in Mexico and around the world. A strong embrace and a cordial invitation to keep moving forward, not one step back. Agitation!

For Anarchy!
For the extension of the every day conflict!
For individual insurrection!
For generalized insurrection!
Not one millimeter backwards… 9 millimeters in the heads of Power!
Social War on all fronts!

With love and Anarchy

Update on anarchist prisoners Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai (Italy)

November 23rd, 2012

via contrainfo:

On November 21st it was confirmed that Nicola Gai was transferred into the first high security wing (AS1) of San Michele prison in Alessandria, after two months of isolation regime in the prison of Sanremo.

Demo for Global Day of Action on Climate Justice (Philippines)

November 22nd, 2012

14 November 2012

Global Day of Action on Climate Justice

A group of almost 20 anarchists with Guy Fawkes mask participate in a global day of action on climate justice. In coordination with other local progressive group the Local Autonomous Network gave solidarity to the climate justice issue stating “corporation and government are the direct perpetrator” so we need “system change not climate change”. The problem of global warming and the earth’s destabilizing climate are caused by the emission of heat trapping greenhouse gases (GHGs), from the historical accumulated pollution of different corporations, not only by the industrialized countries but the whole capitalist magnate. There is already a massive and destructive impact on human in terms of food security, drinkable water, health and livelihood. The miserable thing is the governments are not taking any action about this matter because of the benefit they can get from the corporations.

Destroy corporation before it destroys you!

Smash the state before they smash your community!
