Victory or Death: Nikos Romanos, 29th day of hunger strike – 8/12/14 (Greece)

December 9th, 2014

nikos-romanos-responds-victory-or-death.w_l

via actforfree:

Nikos Romanos has been a prisoner of the State since the dual expropriation of a bank and an ELTA post office in Velventos, Kozani on 02.01.2013.

The action is part of a polymorphous anarchist struggle against those responsible for the looting imposed upon society as a whole by the State and capital.

The political choices and struggle of Nikos Romanos follows the uprising of December 2008. He strives for a world without power, exploitation and bosses.

The struggle of the prisoner on hunger strike for a breath of freedom and against the brutality of confinement and the intensification of punitive repression (termination and refusal of licenses, generalization of the isolation status, type C prisons) alongside the struggle of all the oppressed against repression and the plundering of their lives.

The doctor monitoring the comrade revealed that Nikos has been examined by a psychiatrist, who diagnosed that he is not mentally ill and has no suicidal tendencies. Therefore there is no need for him to receive psychotropic drugs or to be force fed. Even the doctor had difficulty in gaining access to the hospital, despite having repeatedly certified that she is the personal doctor of Nikos Romanos.

Istanbul: Anarchist solidarity statement to comrade Nikos Romanos (Turkey)

December 9th, 2014

via actforfree:

Today, with all the rage against powers that seizes lives, with the conviction of a free world, black flags are being waved all around the world.

Against companies that exploit our labour for more profit; against States that murder many of us in the name of the borders they have drawn up; against all powers that fill their pockets with our lives that they destroy, making us poorer and making the rich richer; rebellion is alive in the rage of anarchism.

The rage against bosses, companies, murderers and States, is propagating in full flood with black flags. The sorrow of being disappeared and murdered is now turning into anger, and the streets are burning with rage all over. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Tis the season to fight the prisons… (UK)

December 6th, 2014

From rabble.org.uk:

The prison population in the UK has doubled over the past 20 years. Check out the series of events coming up in London this month to build prisoner solidarity and resist prison expansion.

First up, on December 9th we’ve got The Politics of Prisons, an event to strategise on how to fight prison & immigration detention expansion, and discuss grassroots alternatives to the police and prisons to deal with problems. Organised by Defend the Right to Protest, the event promises some great speakers.

Then on 15th December there’ll be the first public meeting of an exciting new group, Prison Action London. They’re inviting people to come along to exchange ideas and plans for action. Read the rest of this entry »

Montreal: Locks jammed at a drone research facility (Canada)

December 6th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

On the night of November 29, we snuck into the engineering department of McGill University and jammed the locks of the Aerospace Mechatronics Lab using superglue as a minimum gesture of solidarity with the survivors of the Israeli state’s summer attack on Gaza, in which 800 drone strikes took place over the course of a 50 day period.

Official documents obtained by campus group Demilitarize McGill through an access-to-information request reveal that the Aerospace Mechatronics Lab has received upwards of 262,000$ from the Canadian military to develop software for miniature drones or “strikebots” designed for surveillance and urban warfare.

The advent of drone technology originally offered an oblivious public the “feel-good” fantasy of surgical-precision in the exercise of deadly force, whereas today we now know very well that there exists a significant body of data documenting the fact that Us & Israeli drone campaigns have killed, injured, and displaced thousands of non-combatants in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and the occupied territories.

Taglia e mandato di cattura per un compagno anarchico – Reward and arrest warrant for anarchist comrade (UK)

December 6th, 2014

REPRESSIONE IN UK

3 dicembre 2014-Dai mass-media britannici si legge del mandato di cattura, con taglia di 10.000 sterline per chiunque offra informazioni su di un compagno anarchico, già libero/latitante da 3 anni in seguito alla repressione seguita all’esplosione di guerriglia urbana del 2011 a Bristol ed ad una serie di attacchi, anonimi e firmati ELF, FAI.

I media fanno riferimento a più di cento attacchi avvenuti nel Regno Unito negli ultimi negli ultimi tre anni che hanno prodotto più di 20 milioni di sterline di danni,a vari obiettivi tra cui tralicci per le telecomunicazioni, banche, auto di lusso ed un centro di addestramento della polizia integralmente distrutto durante un attacco, tra cui l’ultimo in solidarietà a Nikos Romanos avvenuto pochi giorni fa.

Il compagno ricercato, Huw Norfolk, è accusato di alcuni di questi attacchi.

Di seguito un suo scritto dalla latitanza, tratto da Since the Bristol Riots

Noi siamo i “ragazzi perduti”, arrabbiati e disillusi da false promesse, la “gioventù incontrollabile” nsoddisfatta del misero futuro che ci viene offerto, i “componenti inutili” che rifiutano o sono in ogni caso esclusi dalla schiavitù salariata o gli “elementi di rottura” che combattono per distruggerla dall’interno, la “minoranza di guastatori” degli schemi della normalità obbediente-gerarchica-razzista-patriarcale, “gli incappucciati” in rivolta costante contro tutto questo ed oltre. Siamo i vostri figli, e quelli della vostra società.
Ed oggi è venuto il tempo per i componenti di quella società di decidere se saranno la mano che cerca di fermarci,o la mano che accende la propria cospirazione per l’auto-determinazione.

Huw ‘Badger’ Norfolk
Solo un’ altro in fuga.

REPRESSION IN UK

December 3, 2014 – According to the British mass-media, there is an arrest warrant, with a size of £10,000 to anyone offering information about an anarchist comrade, already free / fugitive for three years following the repression that followed the explosion of urban warfare 2011 in Bristol and a series of attacks, anonymous and signed ELF, FAI.

The media refer to more than one hundred attacks that occurred in the UK in the last three years, that have produced more than £20 million of damage, at various targets including pylons for telecommunications, banks, luxury cars and a center of police training completely destroyed during an attack, including the latest in solidarity with Nikos Romanos, which occurred a few days ago.

The comrade sought, Huw Norfolk, is accused of some of these attacks.

The following pamphlet was written by persons unknown: Since the Bristol Riots

“We are the “lost kids” angry and disappointed by false promises, the “uncontrollable youth” unsatisfied with the paltry futures offered to us, the “useless components” who reject or are excluded anyway from wage-slavery or the “disruptive elements” who fight to destroy it from within, the “minority of trouble-makers” within the constructs of obedient-hierarchical-racist-patriarchal normality, the “hooded rioters” within the constant revolt against all that and more. We are your children, and those of your society. And it is time today for the components of that society to decide if they will be the hand trying to stop us, or the hand lighting their own conspiracy for self-determination.”

Huw ‘Badger’ Norfolk
just another fugitive.

“La beligerancia de la dignidad” – Textos del compañero Nikos Romanos

PRESENTACIÓN

(Por: Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras)

Un punto de cruce en los caminos de la insurrección permanente.

Entre quienes identifican al poder como enemigo en la lucha por la
liberación total y dotan sus pasos de una proyección que lxs conecta con
otrxs compañerxs, el cruce de caminos entre guerrerxs de distintos
territorios tarde o temprano aparece.

Se nutre así una identificación fraterna con otrxs que, en palabras y
actos, ven la vida y la lucha anárquica de un modo afín al nuestro,
estableciéndose un diálogo entre realidades que aun siendo diversas
comparten un mismo deseo de libertad junto a una disposición presente
por atacar al poder en pos de su completa destrucción. Read the rest of this entry »

Letter by Adriano Antonacci about ‘citizenism’ and other topics (Italy)

December 6th, 2014

Contribution of Adriano from the prison of Ferrara: “A sad circus. Vote for Gianluca and Adriano!”

Contribution to the Croce Nera Anarchica bulletin # 1 – September 2014

With the usual unpromptness caused by the imprisonment, I came to know about the spreading of a public plea aiming at collecting signatures in support of Gianluca and myself. In the beginning I understood it was a proposal for a referendum. A referendum about the “right to resistance” or even the “legitimate sabotage” and I said to myself: if they will reach the quorum, what will ever happen? What will we do? Will we all be “immediately free”? Will we all attack together the existing order?

I had the blurry feeling of being kidnapped by the state and right in the middle of a trial, instead I find myself co-candidate and in full electoral campaign. I had a bit of a headache.

Dear comrades, it’s hot and this sickening vacation doesn’t allow any relief valve, let me then waste a bit of ink to write some obvious things concerning this sad circus and I recommend, vote for us!

With this letter I don’t want to express resentment towards those who promoted this initiative, I wouldn’t dream of it! I can say I have appreciated it from a human point of view but, given my disagreement, on every perspective of it, I think it’s important to reply. Read the rest of this entry »

Piraeus: Open letter of hospitalized comrade Yannis Michailidis, on hunger strike since November 17th (Greece)

December 5th, 2014

I write these lines to express how much I was touched by the widespread and polymorphous solidarity activity of comrades outside the prison walls.

Not only because its extent, imaginativeness, organizing-coordinating, tenacity and aggressiveness so far have surpassed all my expectations, knowing that significant state and capitalist buildings, and radio and television stations have been occupied, organized gatherings and demonstrations have taken place in almost all major cities of the territory, and attacks on the forces of repression as well as all kinds of insurgency attacks have occurred. But also because this is what breaks the solitude of my cell and makes me smile, because I was not imprisoned on Tuesday night, I was among you and felt the warmth of flaming barricades.

Athens: Request of anarchist prisoner Nikos Romanos denied a second time; the comrade continues his hunger strike (Greece)

December 5th, 2014

On the night of December 2nd, 2014, it was confirmed that the request of anarchist prisoner Nikos Romanos – who has now entered the 24th day of hunger strike – was denied a second time. In particular, he had filed an appeal against the denial of special judge Eftichis Nikopoulos to grant him educational furloughs, whose decision was eagerly approved by the Koridallos prison board. The comrade’s appeal was dismissed in Piraeus courts by the competent judicial council.

On December 3rd, Nikos released an open letter from the hospital stating he will fight till the end. The comrade dismissed a proposal to attend distance learning classes, or worse yet video conference courses inside prison walls, and persisted in his demand for a few breaths of freedom.

İstanbul: ‘ELF/Insurrectionary Solidarity Faction’ sabotaged a road roller for Nikos Romanos (Turkey)

December 5th, 2014

In the night of 1st of December, we broke down windows of a road roller and cut its cables in the Kocasinan district of Istanbul, with the intention to show our solidarity to anarchist prisoner Nikos Romanos, who is on hunger strike since 24 days and then to Yannis Michailidis, Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, and Dimitris Politis who have started a hunger strike in support of Nikos Romanos in the Greek prisons.

Then we spray-painted some slogans on a wall close to the target: “Nikos Romanos” and “Fire to the prison cells“.

With this small action, we also salute the warriors who have fallen while not giving way to ISIS butchers, we salute rebels who refuse to stay as protestors, then fight
against cops and attack to the targets of repression and exploitation in Mexico, France, Ferguson and Santiago, we salute ALF-ELF cells who increase actions and attacks in Istanbul and around, we salute the insurrectionaries who got bored of being armchair revolutionaries, who got bored of insurrectional vaporings and Fetishism of Organisation and who got bored of losing their anarchic imagination in
the swamp of liberal opposition.

Until freedom of Nikos Romanos and all anarchist prisoners of war around the world…
Solidarity… Attack… İnsurrection…

Until Total Liberation…
Social War!

“Distance keeps us apart, feelings unite us” – A letter from imprisoned anarchist comrade Monica Caballero (Spain)

December 5th, 2014

From RadioAzione – Translated from Italian by Actforfreedomnow:

The coming days will be full of intense emotion: the anniversary of Sebastian’s irreparable loss in December and already in November a year has passed since I was jailed.

I remember when I heard about Sebastian’s death, it was like a bucket of cold water (bad company in the cold nights of Madrid). The loss of a comrade is always a something horrible but now I am able to remember it and feel proud of having had such a dignified comrade.
We who are building a different reality must remember our brothers and sisters, otherwise only a pile of police reports and journalists’ obituaries will remain of them. The fall of an anti-authoritarian in this war on the existent cannot just be a cause of sadness, we are also called upon to follow his or her example; and in my case it is an immense joy to remember the beautiful lives of those who never bowed down in order to storm the heavens.
Even if it might seem repetitive, Angry [Sebastian O. Seguel] lives in our thoughts. Distance separates us, feelings unite us.

I shall take advantage of this moment lost in memories to make a short analysis of my situation. I’ll begin by going over the reasons for my arrest.

On 13/11/13 the police captured me, my comrade and another 3 people; they charged us with placing an explosive device that detonated in October 2013 at the Basilica del Pilar (Zaragoza); conspiracy to commit another attack, which would allegedly have taken place at the Monastery of the Virgin in Montserrat (Barcelona); and belonging to an armed gang. All this on the basis of the antiterrorism law.

The organization they say we belong to is the Comando Insurreccional Mateo Morral, a group that claimed the placing of two devices: the one at the Cathedral of Almudena (Madrid) and the other that of the Basilica del Pilar (Zaragoza).

Strangely, the charges also include belonging to FAI-FRI and GAC (coordinated anarchist groups), while there is no reference to these acronyms in the claims for the attacks.
One of the main reasons for the action of the Spanish repressive forces is the reports provided by their Chilean colleagues. Since we (Francisco and I) put foot on Iberian soil, the Chilean police have been doing their utmost to avenge their ridicule following the ‘Caso Bombas’, where both of us were acquitted. The words of Sebastian Piñera, Chilean President at the time of our arrests, to the Spanish home minister prove what I’m saying.

The charges against Francisco and myself go far beyond whether or not we carried out the actions. Even the judicial apparatus admitted that the charges are politically motivated, the only thing certain they have is that we are anarchists.

I have never denied the ideas that I spread, and this is what they are punishing.

I won’t kiss their cross of repentance, and am quite calm as I am convinced that I struggle for more noble ideals and that they will never stop anti-authoritarian ideas and practices.

Let’s arm our trajectory, without compromise or negotiation.

We won’t stop until we have torn down all the cages.

Death to the State and long live anarchy!

London: ‘FAI – Fires on the Horizon – Nikos Romanos’ take responsibility for the burning of a security vehicle (UK)

December 3rd, 2014

Act for freedom now! receives anonymous:

Anarchists in action. Today 3/12/14 we set on fire a security car in London in solidarity with our brothers Nikos Romanos. Yiannis Mixailidis, Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, Dimitris Politis, they are on hunger strike in Athens.

That night we kept our eyes fixed on the horizon and saw many falling stars drawing their own chaotic paths. And we counted them over and over, we made wishes, calculated the odds. We knew that our desire for a free life had to step over all that oppresses us, murders us, destroys us, so we dived into the void just like the shooting stars we were observing. Since then innumerable stars have fallen, perhaps it’s time for our star to fall, who knows? If we had the answers ready, we wouldn’t have become what we are, but selfish bastards who would teach people how to become rodents that eat each other as they do today. At least we still remain implacable and stubborn like the people of our kind. And those of us who closed their eyes in pain and travelled far continue to keep their eyes stuck on that night sky we also observed. And they watch us fall, beautiful and shining stars. Now it’s our turn. Now, without hesitation, we fall.

We salute! our comrades of F.A.I. Torches in the Night – Earth Liberation Front.

SOLIDARITY MEANS ATTACK!

Theodoris Sipsas’ trial beginning, London solidarity event (UK)

December 2nd, 2014

spsb.F

via rabble:

The “Marfin” case trial against anarchist comrade Theodoris Sipsas is due to start in Athens tomorrow (Monday 1 December). Theodoris is being framed for the deaths of three bank employees who died when the Marfin bank was set on fire during a Greek general strike in May 2010.

The frame-up is crude. Theodoris Sipsas says, “the case file clearly proves, through witness statements, photographic material and videos from CCTV cameras that I had nothing to do with any attack, at any time, that day in the centre of Athens”. The Greek state has reopened the case to use it as a political weapon against the anarchists and protest movements in Greece, part of their “theory of two extremes” that tries to equate the wave of social revolts since 2008 with the murders carried out by the Golden Dawn nazis.

See this pamphlet (pdf, 8 pages) for a full account.

In London, comrades here are holding an info-evening and benefit on Saturday 6 December.

We are welcoming you to join us on *Saturday 6th of December* to our benefit event for the anarchist T. Sipsas who is prosecuted for the Marfin case of 2010 in Athens, Greece.

*”The prosecution of T. Sipsas is a prosecution of all those who struggle against totalitarianism and barbarity, against the devaluation of life and dignity.”*

There will be a short film screening ”*the accidental prosecution of an anarchist*” followed by an update on the case from T. Sipsas.

*Start at 7pm* with a cocktail bar throughout the night! After the briefing, there will be live music and djs! (£3 entry)

For location please contact the infoline 07405 412161 *or* eve_location@yahoo.co.uk*

Please feel free to spread the word!!!

We’d also like to ask you for your understanding to respect the fact that we do not wish this event to be republished on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter etc
*see you all there!*
