NO TAV: Sabotage and solidarity actions in Savoy & Lyon (France)

March 10th, 2012

From cette semaine, translated from informa-azione (click for photos):

Sabotage in Savoy

We learn from the press of the regime that early in the morning on Saturday 3rd March acts of sabotage were carried out on the French railway trunk line. Three arsons hit the railway structures in the town of La Ravoire, Saint-Pierre-d’Albigny and Chamousset, near Chambery (Savoy).

These acts of sabotage, two of which on the high speed railway (TGV), caused delays throughout the day of Saturday for a hundred trains on the lines going from Chambery to Mondane (and to Italy), Bourg-Saint-Maurice and Grenoble. Therefore high speed trains to Italy were delayed besides those full of tourists going skiing (it’s school holiday in France).

Two signalling caves were set on fire, which are particularly important on this line because high speed trains use only one track on both directions. According to the press, unknown people tore off the cable trays in concrete running along the railroad tracks and set fire to the caves inside them (signalling cave) using rags soaked in petrol and oil. A graffiti saying NO TAV was left on a railway sentry box close to the arsons.

Police say they are not sure that the sabotage is linked to what’s going on in Val Susa (!) but a great numbers of gendarmes backed by helicopters equipped with thermal cameras were deployed to patrol the railroad tracks in the area…

Lyon

On Thursday 1st March a solidarity demo with the NO TAV movement was held in Lyon. A group of unmasked people split from the march and forced a technician to open the door of a railway centre. The small group of demonstrators went up the railroad tracks and threw bags of sand at the air cables which feed the trains, thus blocking the latter. All trains that were due to pass by on that track were therefore delayed for one and a half hours (on one of the trains there were even two ministers visiting the area!) During the night paint was threw and graffiti were left on the walls of the Italian consulate of the city.

Police repression spectacle for Animal Rights Action Weekend – Bristol (UK)

March 6th, 2012

This weekend saw a whole host of ridiculous police repression at the Animal Rights Action Weekend.

On Saturday morning [3.3.12] there was a demonstration at Bristol Airport against Air France KLM, who are one of the few airlines still prepared to ship animals into this country for experimentation. The demonstration consisted of several people with fake blood on, being transported by some pretend KLM staff. After a member of the public supposedly got a small amount of fake blood on their sleeve and lost their temper, the police saw an opportunity to make some ridiculous arrests over claimed criminal damage offences, eventually arresting 6 people. One of the arrests was for assault of a PC after the arresting officer threw the arrestee to the floor and punched the floor next to them, injuring their own hand and blaming the arrestee!

Letter from Hidayat, In Prison in Makassar (Indonesia)

March 6th, 2012

Dear comrades,

From the bottom of my heart and an ardent yearning to be with you, I wanted to write this short letter in order to let all my friends know that “a fire still burns in our hearts that cannot be extinguished”.

Being in this place is not something I wished for, but also it should not be a cause for regret. We are aware and we understand that rebellion against the State is vital, but it also entails risks. If anarchists attack something that others hold sacred, then those people will not be able to tolerate anarchism. That is what underlies all our fears. Whenever someone opposes and seeks to destroy something we hold sacred, of course we will resist with all our strength. Read the rest of this entry »

Hamburg: Solidarity attack on banks for the struggle in Greece (Germany)

March 5th, 2012

325 receives and transmits:

27 & 28 February 2012

Solidarity with the revolting people in Greece (Hamburg/Germoney)

The crisis is the fucking system!

In Greece, people struggle against the direct results of decisions made by German and other European politicians above their and our heads! The anti-Greece-propaganda of the German press is disgusting to us!

Our solidarity goes out to those in strike and struggle, who are imprisoned and see themselves confronted with repression. Also we send solidarity to the Greek revolutionaries of the urban guerrilla group “Revolutionary Struggle”, who are confronted with the courts for their ideas and struggles.

During the nights of February, the 27th and 28th, we attacked six banks in Hamburg. It’s a small, but clear sign to attack banks in Germany, for example, we were inspired by an action of solidarity in Bielefeld, and we hope that a lot of people will do the same and send solidarity to the revolting people in Greece and rage and stones against the banks and their system.

May a lot of people get to the streets in Frankfurt and everywhere on the 31st of March and any time else!

For a hot summer! Freedom!

NO TAV: Solidarity actions in Paris & Lima (France, Peru)

March 5th, 2012

NO TAV: Gathering and road blocks in Paris, France.

Paris – Saturday 3rd March 2012. About fifty people answered the solidarity call of the NO TAV movement. During the gathering, speeches on the events in Val Susa and the mobilizations all over Italy, then the points of the meetings: what are we going to do besides the solidarity, simple but necessary, with the prisoners; how can we bring the movement to France; what are the links between this movement and us? Followed by policemen in plain clothes at a certain distance, the small group started marching and blocked the traffic in Sebastopol and on Rue de Rivoli, and eventually reached Place du Chalet, where a demo for the Syrian people was being held.

-

NO TAV – Solidarity from Peru, Italian embassy visited.

On the night of 29th February we visited the Italian embassy in Lima and left there a banner reading: ‘SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE THAT STRUGGLE FOR THE LAND! NO TAV!’ We also dubbed a ridiculous baroque-like painting on the wall with graffiti. As we were being chased by the watch dogs of power, we disappeared in the darkness.

In this country the struggle is against mines, in Italy it is against the high speed railway. May resistance to the destructive projects of the State and capital go beyond all borders! Against all harmfulness and in defence of the Earth. Self-organization and Direct Action everywhere!

NO TAV – NO CONGA – FREEDOM FOR ALL

Buenos Aires: Criminal Court bombed by Indomitable Nucleus for the Spread of the Fire / FAI (Argentina)

March 4th, 2012

From culmine:

1 March 2012

Ours is the conviction

Gendarmería, Local, and Buenos Aires Federal police, civilian brigades, anti-terrorist laws, biometric identification systems, thousands of cameras throughout the city, vigilant citizens ready to betray, overcrowded jails, torture, murder … this is the scenario where our struggle, in a context similar to many other cities, attacking comrades, individually or collectively, without any social consensus and without the approval of any leader, alone and with their principles and values, ​​burn like a fire.

For our part, we report that on Thursday March 1st at 2:30 in the morning, we attacked with an explosive / incendiary, the Criminal Court in Calle Paraguay 1536, in the city center, causing visible damage to the facade and their windows.

We’re thinking of the comrades Freddy Fuentevilla Saa, Marcelo Villarroel Sepulveda and Juan Aliste Vega, who were on hunger strike in prison in Santiago on February 17, within days of international turmoil (19 to 29 February).

Compañeros: The subversion is awake and will not disappear! While there is poverty there will be rebellion!!

The brothers of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, that even within the prison continue war unabated. We are brothers with their words, their gestures and their actions and with the project of the Informal Anarchist Federation, to which we contribute and strengthen.

With love and complicity for the companion Luciano Pitronello (Turtle), wounded and kidnapped by the Chilean state. Gabriel Pombo da Silva, prisoner in Germany – anarquista integro; Marco Camenisch, fighter for the liberation of the earth; and comrade-prisoners in Mexico, Spain, Italy, Indonesia…

With Mauricio Morales and Lambros Foundas always present in the combative memory.

War without truce to the whole system of domination

March 2nd, 2012

Received from anarchist comrade in Osaka:

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.

Words from Luciano in solidarity with Freddy, Marcelo and Juan (Chile)

March 1st, 2012

From Hommodolars -
Translated from spanish by sabotagemedia:

Making the stars shine with our solidarity.

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 »

Call: Survivors of Sexual Assault/Domestic Violence Writing on Solidarity with Prison Abolition (Canada)

February 29th, 2012

- This call comes out of Canada and parts of Western Europe.

325 receives and transmits:

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 »

NO TAV: Summary of latest events (Italy)

February 29th, 2012

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 »
