At the end of January 2012, some comrades in Gorontalo, Northern Sulawesi, Indonesia, made an action of solidarity to Eat & Billy, imprisoned members of the Long Live Luciano Tortuga Cell – International Revolutionary Front / FAI and other imprisoned anarchists. They sealed 4 ATMs from different banks around the city, by filling the glue in the card channel, covering the monitor with oil paint, and writing some solidarity slogans on the walls. They left two communiques in two different places of action, to be claimed under the name of Vandals for Solidarity Cell – International Conspiracy of Revenge / FAI Indonesia. We only just received this news now, the communiques were “never found” and the media surpressed information of the sabotage.
FREEDOM FOR EAT & BILLY, LUCIANO TOO AND ALL THE PRISONERS
Trento – Imprisoned comrade Juan protests in solidarity with Luca and the NO TAV struggle
On Monday 27th February our comrade Juan, arrested on 26th January and detained in the prison of Spini di Gardolo in Trento, heard of the eviction of Baita Clarea in Val Susa and of the serious condition of Luca. For this reason Juan decided to carry out a protest and refused to go back to the cell after the time in the exercise yard. Read the rest of this entry »
On the evening of 28 Feb 2012, an old leftist-commandante telefoned me about old comrade ‘A’… He shortly told me about his situation:
A friend of comrade ‘A’ visited him on the afternoon of 28 Feb 2012, however, he did not reply at all. Then the visitor tried to say “wake up” to him again and again, but comrade ‘A’ did not wake up forever… On the morning of 28 Feb, temperature of Osaka was -3C degrees. Ja, it was so cold morning. By that morning, I worked on a roadside at the foot of Ikoma mountain…
So, I really know about it. Read the rest of this entry »
“Towards the end of last year the super quarry at Bardon Hill in Leictershire was sabotaged. This is the flagship quarry of Bardon Aggrigates, subsiduary of Aggrigate Industries, the company removing mountain tops for roadstone in Glensanda Scotland. Bardon Hill Quarry is a mile across and over quarter of a mile deep, and is removing a hillside that is designated as a SSSI. They are planning to extend this quarry to new areas using over three miles of conveyers to transport the stone. During the week bore holes were dug for the new expansion visitors climbed down into the quarry over night destroying engines and hydraulics, gluing locks, and drilling tires. You could stand in the buckets of the excavators and the wheels of the trucks were over eight feet tall. 3 excavators, 1 bulldozer, and 4 dumper trucks were sabotaged.”
This handout issue features a front page article from Actforfreedomnow/BoubourAs, the secondary article concerns anarchist revolutionary solidarity and the struggle against prison by Guiseppe. Also inside is an incomplete direct action chronology of the past few weeks and the breaking stories of the moment : CCF- Imprisoned Members Cell and accused others will be indicted with 250 attacks carried out in the name of the Revolutionary Organisation over the course of its history; Val Susa, Luca Abba is hospitalized fighting against the High-Speed Rail (Italy); Santiagio: State demands 15 years prison for Luciano ‘Tortuga’ (Chile).
The news spread fast and (as it has always had to be) the isolation was not a problem. A call-out for direct solidarity with 3 political prisoners, defendants in the security case.
With news that the compañeros were also on hunger strike my response to this situation was immediate, “I too am going to go on strike,” with astonishment and concern the compañerxs who informed me of the situation warned me not to be so crazy, to think things through, more calmly, was I prepared for a hunger strike? In my condition a measure of this nature could be lethal, because I could lose everything gained as far as my health is concerned, and its true… Read the rest of this entry »
A new round of interrogations is going to start concerning 250 cases of explosions, for which the organization had claimed responsibility with communiques posted on the internet.
The appeals interrogators Dimitris Mokkas and Kostandinos Baltas proceeded to apply additional persecutions for these attacks, for which until yesterday, no penal responsibilities were attributed against the specific people. Thus, in the next few days it is expected that those who are accused as members of the C.C.F., will be called to testify about the 250 explosions.
NO PROSECUTION TO THOSE ACCUSED IN THE C.C.F. CASES
FREEDOM TO ALL THOSE IMPRISONED FOR THE SAME CASES

Working Title: Challenging Convictions: Survivors of Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Writing on Solidarity with Prison Abolition.
Completed submissions due: April 15, 2012.
Like much prison abolition work, the call for this anthology comes from frustration and hope: frustration with organizers against sexual assault and domestic violence who treat the police as a universally available and as a good solution; frustration with prison abolitionists who only use “domestic violence” and “rape” as provocative examples; and, frustration with academic discussions that use only distanced third-person case studies and statistics to talk about sexual violence and the Prison Industrial Complex (PIC). But, this project also shares the hope and worth of working toward building communities without prisons and without sexual violence. Most importantly, it is anchored in the belief that resisting prisons, domestic violence, and sexual assault are inseparable. Read the rest of this entry »
Widespread acts of resistance are taking place across Italy triggered by the near murderous actions of the police in Val Susa.
A summary of the latest events - Baita Clarea is an area in Val Susa where works for the implementation of the TAV were due to start soon. On Monday 27th February the forces of order proceeded to evict and expropriate the land in Baita Clarea in order to clear the way for the devastating high speed railway works. On the same day Luca Abba’, a resident of the Val Susa whose land was also expropriated, climbed a pylon in an attempt to block the ongoing military operation. The cops ordered Luca to come down without taking precautions for his safety, pushing him even higher and failing to cut off the electricity of the pylon. As a result, Luca was electrocuted and fell several metres below.Read the rest of this entry »

Editorial: Abrazando el Caos desde su idea primaria, cuando no era más que un proyecto, un embrión en manos de un puñado de compañerxs, se planteo ser una publicación de anarquistas para anarquistas, atendiendo a las diferentes expresiones anti-autoritarias, rebeldes, subversivas, liberacionistas, etc. Con el tiempo nos fuimos afianzando, equivocándonos, creciendo, encontrándonos, desencontrándonos y afianzándonos nuevamente. Objetivo que creemos estamos cumpliendo y por el cual pretendemos seguir, sigue siendo el objetivo primario. Somos de los que creemos que lxs anarquistas partimos de la negación, pero nos realizamos en la afirmación. Read the rest of this entry »
The political trial continues and begins to advance slowly chapter after chapter with the particular accusation against each comrade, bringing different police officers, experts or simply “at the scene” witnesses. This time the trial was suspended due to the extensive and continuous months of daily hearings, setting aside 5 days of “rest” to then return on February 13. Read the rest of this entry »
A place recently abandoned by an Non-Governmental Organisation, where before children were enclosed, children living there without a patio or necessary health, was taken for us to give life, but not just any life. What we call living is far from the ideals that politicians spread, it is far from the ideals of capitalist life that benefits the rich and all that their supporters are bent to maintain.

“Henderson Biomedical are a newly exposed supplier of lab equipment to Huntingdon Life Sciences. A few nights ago activists visited their premises in Lower Sydenham, London, to deliver a message to the company.
Mark if you keep supporting HLS you will continue to be a target of the animal rights movement. It won’t hurt to stop dealing with them but as the graffiti said, this is just the start if you don’t.
If you continue to be responsible for animal cruelty, the attacks will continue.

Brothers Billy & Eat,
It has been four months that both of you have been locked up behind bars which are operated by the state. A tool of repression that restricts your physical space, but we are sure not the imagination, passion and revenge in your hearts.
We also totally believe that every night you’ve spent under the terror and threats has not turned your hatred to the society and its whole apparatus of oppression. The warmth of love has just now departed from us through the wind to carry the news, that we are inspired by you. Read the rest of this entry »

On 24 October 2011 their trial began. You can find updates about the process translated into English here and here. Update: N. Maziotis was captured after an armed clash with police in Athens. P.Roupa and their baby-son, Victor Lambros are still in clandestinity. Find further news here.
"This pamphlet is a meeting point of comrades from all over the world. An imaginary meeting since the walls and bars of the prisons where we are temporarily keep our bodies hostage. But our meanings remain free, escape from the cells of prison and are expressed with words continuing to provoke authority.
Words that still smell of fire and gunpowder, words which carry with them all of our hate for the system, words unrepentant and armed, words which transfer stresses and desires, words which break the isolation of prison, words full of passion for the mutiny we want to continue, words from Chile, Mexico, America, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Bulgaria, Indonesia..."CCF
