Solidarity with Juan, Natalie and Guillermo: 3 arrested comrades are formally charged under the anti-terrorist law in recent Santiago bombings case (Chile)

September 24th, 2014


(Translated by Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras from “Refractario”)

On Tuesday, September 23, 2014, the judicial formalization of charges was performed against Juan Flores, Natalie Casanova and Guillermo Duran, comrades arrested on September 18 accused of the last explosive attacks that occurred in Santiago.

In a special courtroom (with two floors), used for large prosecutions, formalization was performed with a great security device that included the presence of anti-riot prison guards and various controls before enter the court room.

-

The struggle continues

Last week we saw a diverse struggle against NATO in Cymru. Marches against NATO in the streets of Newport and Cardiff; actions against the forces driving war in the banks and the securitised zones; workshops and discussions at the camp about connected issues from Gaza to police repression at the camp; people spreading the word in a hundred different ways, from conversations with locals, to the camp, to the web. But the struggles against capitalism and militarism are not a one-day, or even a one-week, event. The actions taken this week by Stop NATO Cymru, the Anarchist Action Network and other organisations are a small part of building up a movement capable of bringing about radical change.

So, when we look back, does it make sense to ask whether we “succeeded” in the week of action? We think it does. If one more mind went beyond the distortions of the mainstream media because of what we did, then yes we ‘succeeded’. If one more pair of feet was spurred onto the streets by what we did, then we succeeded. And if one more pair of hands joined with ours, yes, we succeeded. In the coming struggles, those hands will again pick up the tools to take action, until the last drone is smashed. We hope to see you there.

Cardiff: No Borders Noise Demo outside the UK Home Office Buildings (Wales, UK)

September 24th, 2014

On the 2nd of September, at 12pm around 50 people gathered outside the Cardiff Home Office Buildings for the noise demo planned as part of the Stop NATO Cymru week of action. In the past, there have been monthly noise demos by No Borders South Wales group, with many different points of focus, ID cards, destitution, dawn-raids and anti-deportation. The focus of this particular demo was how border controls relate to militarism and the NATO war machine. This was called because NATO are part of the samesystem that divides and isolates through borders. Borders are a mechanism for the divide and rule of working class people. Borders kill innocent people around the world as does militarism. Read the rest of this entry »

Wild Destruction

September 24th, 2014

(From Die Lunte)

The burning fuse – a quiet hiss in this world in which everything is talked to death and nothing is done.

Individualities who rise out of the mass and define what we will do with our lives and why for ourselves.

Self-determination which can break out of the circle of delegation and rules.

Passion that takes pleasure in the virtue of wild destruction, announcing the battle against oppression and authority.

Uncertainty and the lust for adventure against dogma and guarantee. A dream of freedom for people and animals.

Sustaining free spirits in permanent insurrection against control, war, racism, cages and religion.

Death to the symbols, the gods, the compulsion of survival, the flags and hierarchies.

Unity only as the individual desires, not in a pre-existent group or collective reality.

Excerpt from ‘Towards the generalisation of armed struggle’ by Alfredo M. Bonanno (Elephant Editions)

September 24th, 2014

Insurrection

It is within the perspective of generalised mass armed struggle that the insurrection takes on libertarian meaning, and marks the definitive critique of any ‘closed’ attempt to organise the management of the class conflict.

Generalised armed conflict is the natural outcome of a situation that is getting worse every day. The exploited are beginning to point out this necessity in a series of anti-institutional actions that are continually spreading. The isolated acts of punishment carried out by minority clandestine groups against some of those responsible for exploitation are coming to be accepted with satisfaction and approved by the mass.

Abyssal core of action

-

* Avalon, ‘William C. Rogers’, was a comrade of the Earth Liberation Front in the United States who suicided during the investigation of the FBI Operation Backfire, known as the ‘Greenscare’. Avalon made a statement of escape on the night he died, mailing it to several friends, and asphyxiated by a plastic bag over his head. He defended his choice as a return to the heart of life and death, and from where the agents of the law can never reach us. Honor and dignity to Avalon, who through his example showed courage and determination in the face of the enemy, he who refused the trial and prison process and made his choice in an impossible situation of betrayal. Let the blood shed from the snitches and the collaborators who still live, those who ratted on their comrades of the Earth Liberation Front. Fire and rage against each and every cage.

“To my friends and supporters to help them make sense of all these events that have happened so quickly: Certain human cultures have been waging war against the Earth for millennia. I chose to fight on the side of bears, mountain lions, skunks, bats, saguaros, cliff rose and all things wild. I am just the most recent casualty in that war. But tonight I have made a jail break — I am returning home, to the Earth, to the place of my origins.” Bill, 12/21/05 (winter solstice)

Initial collective response to public letter of JoNina & Lorenzo “Racism at the NA ABC Conference” (USA)

September 22nd, 2014

We are writing as the crew that organized the North American ABC Conference, in response to JoNina and Lorenzo’s public letter “Racism at the NA ABC Conference.” We are nine people spread across the country, from New York to Sacramento, in conjunction with Denver ABC, and as such have a range of views on their open letter. This response is not a full statement of all of those views, or even a consensus of what things we all agree on, but rather a response required to urgently address the letter and to clarify information within it. This statement is NOT to discredit, disqualify, disregard, or fault JoNina and Lorenzo for their experience(s). The information provided is correct to the best of our account, and is provided for the purpose of transparency.

We also note that our public response to this matter is made against our preference for dealing with conflicts internal to anarchist movements. We are troubled by JoNina and Lorenzo’s decision to publish their letter on the Internet (including Facebook) in addition to sending it out over our closed listserv. We find it inappropriate to publicly handle internal matters, where anyone and everyone is privy to internal conflict, that typically makes it difficult to move forward and lends itself more to internet flame wars than revolutionary efforts to deal with oppression within our movements.

Update about the 3 arrested comrades accused for explosive attacks (Chile)

September 22nd, 2014

(Translated by Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras with info from Refractario)

During the morning of September 18, 2014, several raids shook Santiago seeking to give results to the latest explosives attacks. Finally the police in a broad operation gets the arrest of 3 comrades. According to the press and the police, detention realized thanks to a investigation from the security cameras inside the subway train and a ticket-card used by the suspects.

Comrades arrested are:
Natalie Casanova Muñoz (26 years),
Juan Flores Riquelme (22 years) ,
Guillermo Durán Méndez (25 years).

When comrades were transferred to the “Jusitice Center”, they keep their heads up and Juan shouted “Down with the Police-State!”

The press, as the power carrion, has been reporting about the “dangerous individuals” that “belong to an hermetic anarchist cell”, developing their classic campaign creating an internal enemy. Read the rest of this entry »

International Conspiracy for Revenge claim responsibility for the coordinated attack on the 39° Bosque and 1° police stations in Santiago (Chile)

September 21st, 2014

from contrainformate transl. waronsociety:

On August 11 we carried out an attack on the 39° Bosque and 1° police stations in Santiago. We wanted to show that it is possible to hit the police right in the nose. It ended up as we would have liked as some bastion of law was injured.

/”they are mortal and their laws are destructible”/

We love to see wounded or dead cops whether in conflictual clashes or acts of sabotage.They should know that anyone of them could face the same fate as the pigs Moyano, Vera, or Bobadilla; they are all responsible (and volunteers) of belonging to a military institution that represses the population on a daily basis and orders us to comply to the laws imposed by the powerful.

It should be clear to them that each aggression that has been committed by the pigs of power is not forgotten, that their condition of impunity will not last long, they are human beings, mortal like any other.

Let us dare to confront them, there is every reason to detest the existence of the police, ratis, repressive forces, and/or guardians of the rich. They are the military force of the bourgeoisie in charge of suppressing and punishing every attempt to recuperate that which has been accumulated for centuries thanks to exploitation.

Whether in robberies or protests, they are those in charge of exerting fear on the population. Their essence is the defense of the system making us submit to its miseries. They and their bosses should be beaten and attacked with every means and all their manifestations.

We remember each blow given and yearn for the multiplication of direct attacks against their repulsive authority, as the preparation of material needed in order to cause the desired damage is minimal.

We remember and align ourselves with the compañerxs who carried out the failed attack on January 1, 2014 on the 14° station in ñuñoa, we also would have liked to see how this powerful device detonated and we celebrate the attack on the Lo Prado station!!

We send our fraternal greetings to all the families and loved ones of those fallen at the hands of the police.

Present in our minds are Matias Catrileo, Jhonny Cariqueo, Claudia Lopez, Daniel Melinao, Javier Mendoza Collio, all are present, dead here or in whichever part of the world they are part of the social war.

We are adding to the initiative of the compas in Indonesia and we make up part of:

Kansas City: Anarchist comrade Eric G. King arrested for alleged incendiary attack on Representative office (USA)

September 20th, 2014

The following is a report from the capitalist media. Comrades are in the process of contacting Eric and setting up support. More information will come as it becomes available.

His address at the moment is:

Eric King
27090045
CCA Leavenworth
100 Highway Terrace
Leavenworth, KS 66048
USA

Charges have been filed in the firebombing incident at Congressman Emanuel Cleaver’s office in Kansas City, September 11, 2014.

Eric G. King, a 28 year old local anarchist, was caught on surveillance tapes throwing two lit alcohol bottles into the office and running away.

Kansas City police initially identified King as a suspect because he previously had come under scrutiny during an investigation of anti-government graffiti on a local Bank of America building and the spray painting of Kansas City police vehicles, according to federal court records.

Passers-by injured in explosive attack, confusions, reflections, responses, arrested people & communique (Chile)

September 20th, 2014

Responses to Attack on Transit Hub in Chile

Our best intentions, visions, ideas and methods can always end up in the hands of fools or enemies who seek to undermine us. As has been written by various individuals or groups over the last couple of weeks, a critique of society as a function of power and domination does not legitimate attacks in public places full of random people whose relationship with the power structure is unknown and with such a high probability of error and accident. This kind of attack is not the logical conclusion of our arguments and analyses, although individual civilians may at times constitute a target when they clearly ally themselves with power in a given situation involving their active complicity and force. Moreover, I think that even to put one’s faith in the police to ‘do the right thing’ and evacuate an area is an error. We have to carry out rigorous logistical checks and balances on our explosive/incendiary deeds without putting misplaced trust in State functionaries. The State has much more to gain from allowing civilians to be wounded or killed as a result of such deeds than from rescuing anarchist groups from their own stupidity, if that is indeed who was responsible – the para-state and far-right often use these kind of tactics, not anarchists and nihilists. I cannot talk for the CCF, but I don’t feel this action to be an expression of the words and deeds of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire in Greece whose intelligence, integrity and wisdom of deed I trust absolutely, as an expression of my own projectuality. V.Q.

-

I point out that from my understanding of the Angry Brigade of UK, that this group would have never have carried out such a poorly executed and suspiciously ignorant attack as the ones performed in Chile against the subway targets. The Angry Brigade were influenced by situationist and libertarian-anarchist ideas, who spoke directly about class violence and the victory of the organised working class. And so, not only do the Angry Brigade have absolutely nothing in common with the operational parameters used by whoever made those attacks, but they seem to have also very little in terms of ideas.

Life in the UK and Ireland has some important lessons for armed direct action groups from one of the longest running and dirty counter-insurgency wars in modern history, the struggle against British colonialism and sectarian violence. Any understanding of virtually all armed violent action in UK and Ireland is informed by that experience, as were the Angry Brigade. All of those who are old enough to remember, on all sides, know what it is like to live under the constant threat that we could be killed by an indiscriminate attack because of the war going on.

And so, despite being very sick of the herd and its values, I remind of the bombing of the town centre of Omagh, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland on Saturday afternoon, 15 August, 1998, which killed 29 and injured 220, and was carried out by men of the Real IRA under surveillance by the British security services and GCHQ, the UK government communications surveillance and spy agency. The bombers carried the explosive device over the border and into a busy shopping district at a peak time and gave a clear warning. Unfortunately, the rest is politics. L.


ES
: Reino Unido: Respuestas Anarquistas Entorno a los Ataques Anarquistas en los Metros en Chile

(Translated by Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras)

On Monday 8 September, a bomb exploded on a transit corridor of a commercial center near to a subway train station at 14 PM. 14 people were injured, including passers and workers that worked cleaning the building.

Government pointed to anarchists, talking about “struggle against terrorism” and that kind of things. They mentioned [smeared] a CCF text (“Let’s become dangerous”) and the anarchist meeting in Mèxico in December, 2013, as examples of instances where there were apparently reflections on the idea of attacking civilians. Also they mentioned about comrades from Chile that travelled to Mexico.

In the first day after that fact, some people and comrades thought that it could be the action from fascist or paramilitary groups, because the place, really, is not exclusive of powerful people.

Also, some anarchist action groups spoke about the importance of making clear and not blind attacks, considering civil people as targets only when they are clear representatives of power and never leaving the safety of our actions to chance. Read the rest of this entry »

Anti-Prison Mobilisation for the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners (Mexico)

September 18th, 2014

From ABC Mexico:

The prison, like the police, is a fact necessary to the maintenance of social peace. It is the domination and control that allow this filthy world to be maintained. Jail means fear, uncertainty, shame, loneliness and isolation. Society trains individuals to be good citizens. My strength as an individual takes root in fear rejection could be a limit on my life. Of course, I have fear, like everybody, of many things, but my desire for freedom are larger. Fear is often built and can be destroyed when confronted. What matters is to look beyond, to exceed the limits, boundaries, beyond the walls, mountains, rivers and oceans.
Amelie Trudeu

Solidarity with our imprisoned comrades must be a constant and permanent activity without waiting dates marked on the calendar. However, it is also important to carry out solidarity activities in a coordinated manner between different groups. In that sense it was convened to conduct solidarity actions from 23 to 30 August, not with the idea of centralizing solidarity, but rather to strengthen ties and collaborations internationally.

In Mexico City the call was well received among anarchist groups and individuals. Forums, events in public places, leafleting, radio transmission, an anti-prison critical-mass, placing banners. This is a brief chronicle. Read the rest of this entry »

Dark Nights #41 : ‘Against all States – Against all Gods’ – Sept 2014 (ACN)

September 16th, 2014

24 pages B&W : Dark Nights #41

International anti-prisons insurrectional newsletter Dark Nights is back after a summer break. Front page news is the communique by ‘FAI “Sacco & Vanzetti” Circle of Propaganda by Life & by Deed’ for the incendiary attack prior to the NATO summit in Wales, against BAE Systems Arms Development Centre. News of this new anarchist urban guerrilla attack taking place has been suppressed by the regime, as they are frightened of the spread of the anti-system attacks and the damage to the image of the blood-soaked company. The fiery attack took place in Filton, Bristol, where many military-industrial-technological companies are situated, and proved that the direct action groups can strike the military-industrial complex in their closed sites.

Primary article by individualist nihilist-anarchist comrade Venona Q. is about authoritarian fundamentalism and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The brief article is about raw power and the total liberation war against all Gods and States. Against “progress”, the “West”, “democracy” and “civilisation”, the writer sounds a sharply critical and vengeful cry against the mullahs, militias, bureaucrats and fundamentalist murderers of the Middle East and the West alike. Reminding us of the continuous visions of the fight for human dignity against dominion by concepts, authorities and the power of death.

There’s an incomplete round-up of direct action sabotages, attacks and riots in our chronology, compiling incidents since late May 2014, and a complimentary section giving coverage to the International Week for Anarchist Prisoners which recently took place, that was organised by the world-wide Anarchist Black Cross groups, counter-information groups, action cells and others. During the last few months there have been intense efforts taking place in prisons across Europe, as prisoners in Greece carried out a campaign and hungerstrike against the Type C prison plans, where Domokos prison will be turned into a huge Guantanamo. The hungerstrike is finished now, but the prisoners of Greece and their friends and relatives have vowed to undertake an struggle by all means. This has now spread into the prisons of Germany and Switzerland, as prisoners there also found common cause and solidarity with the fight taking place and carried out their own hungerstrike mobilisation. This kind of trans-border action is a vital sign of a re-construction of the new internationalist struggle happening and we are with the prisoners in struggle in our hearts, words, thoughts and actions.

And there is the usual selection of prisoners letters, including the text by imprisoned anarchist Carlos ‘Chivo’ Lopez in Mexico about informality, an article by the imprisoned members cell of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire about negation, coherence and refusal in the active sense during the trial prosecuting them, plus news reports and more writings from our imprisoned comrades enabling their wishes, dreams and struggles to escape beyond the walls of the prisons.

Tamara Sol, Francisco Solar, Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Graziano Mazzarelli, Chiara Zenobi, Nikos Maziotis, dozens and dozens more… To the streets!

Madrid: Fierce Resistance as Neo-Nazi group ‘MSR’ opens ‘white Spanish only’ occupied center (Spain)

September 16th, 2014

via squat.net:

Series of big anti-nazi demos against fascist squatters… Anti-fascists seize ‘white Spanish only’ food stall and distribute to all.. Fascist squatters may have owners permission… Squatters movement disowns fascist squat… Police turn blind eye to nazi “okupas” in Tetuan barrio…. Fascist thugs from MSR squat injure local youths.. Media equates nazi’ Social Home’ with long existing popular and anti racist Squat center ‘La Enrededera’ to demand its eviction.

Thousands of neighbours have come out against the nazi squat.
They are not squatters: they are Nazis.

On 18 August, the neo-Nazi group Social Republican Movement (MSR) announced on social media their entry into an abandoned building in Madrid’s Tetuan barrio and their intention to turn it into a social center for ‘those in need’ provided they were white and of Spanish nationality.

Opening such center in the district with the largest migrant population of Madrid and the opposition it generated among neighbors attracted media attention, especially after the massive demonstration against held the same day as opening of the center, on August 30.

Since then, it has been common to see the press referred to the center as a “squatted building” and members of the neo-Nazi group as “squatters” in an error which is then repeated in social networks. The center is equated with the squatting movement, which has always had among its main objectives the recovery of abandoned homes to become social centers and buildings.

This assimilation was false, but the reality mattered little. Read the rest of this entry »

A communique about the disciplinary wings of Korydallos prison by Dimitris Politis (Greece)

September 16th, 2014

via interarma:

In the middle of July, I was transferred to the state hospital of Nikea for some medical examinations. There, given the nature of that examination and due to the police presence during the procedure, which was demanded by the doctor himself, I refused to be examined and I returned to prison. On the 6th of August, I was called to a disciplinary council on the charge of disobedience because I refused to execute the command of my police escort. By entering the office of the commanding prison officer with the intention of telling the prosecutor that I have nothing to state and then leave, I sat opposite to her and she addressed me saying “stand up”. I didn’t pay attention to what she said and while I was telling her to get serious, she told me again with an arrogant smile to stand up. Then, I crumpled the piece of paper where the charges were written and I threw it in her face. I was obviously standing before another arrogant and misled person, who was under the illusion that she owns the world. I was facing another expendable and petty pawn that was under the illusion that all prisoners are inferior to it. So, in order for her to restore her wounded ego, she “punished” me with a five-day restriction penalty in a “special detention wing”. Read the rest of this entry »
