February 3rd, 2013

From Contra Info:

According to a report on Indymedia Athens, comrades Yannis Michailidis and Dimitris Politis were arrested by police along with two other persons.

Arrest warrants had been issued against both comrades for alleged participation in the anarchist revolutionary organization Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.

The arrests were made in the morning of February 1st, 2013, and now the cops attempt to link the arrestees to two armed bank robberies in the wider area of Kozani (northern Greece).

All four hostages were severely beaten by the cops. In a corporate video from the courthouse in Kozani, comrades are heard shouting:

“Long live anarchy! Long live anarchy, you scumbags!”

“Long live anarchy! Cops, judges, politicians, you have no reason to sleep calm. We lost a battle but not the war! – Fuck off!”

Strength to the comrades that were kidnapped by the State!

Anarchist comrades Alfredo and Sergio on hunger strike (Italy)

February 1st, 2013

From RadioAzione via actforfree/B.pd:

From informa-azione.info we learn that two comrades, Alfredo Cospito – arrested following the investigation on the wounding of Ansaldo Nucleare manager Roberto Adinolfi, which occurred in May 2012 in Genoa – and Sergio Maria Stefani – arrested in June following operation ‘Ardire’ – have undertaken a hunger strike. From what we learn from the comrades of informa-azione, the reason for this protest is the refusal by the prison authority to allow visits to Alfredo and Sergio from their respective partners.

Update:

Since Tuesday January 29 comrades Alfredo Cospito and Sergio M. Stefani, imprisoned in the AS2 unit of the prison of Alessandria, have undertaken a hunger strike in order to obtain visits with their respective partners. We remind you that Alfredo has been denied visits with his partner since his arrest on September 14, as they were both investigated in the same case.

Sergio could get visits with his partner, but as she was detained following the same investigation he could only see her after she was released on December 21. He got three visits with her before the investigation passed from the prosecution of Perugia to that of Milan, which decided to deny these visits. There follows a short message with which the comrades make their protest known.

“The world of commodities, techno-industrial society and civilization itself are not based on individuals who are unpredictable and different from one another by their nature, but on the mass made homogenized by education, morals and the law.

In this world any sincere and profound relation becomes suspicious, affinity links are synonym of ‘criminal’ relations, solidarity is reduced to mere execution of orders.

But we refuse to reduce our desires to realism and to domesticate our passions. We live our lives without mediation, without being content and this gives us a smile on our face that never abandons us.

For this reason we cannot accept that anybody tries to cut our relations and we undertake hunger strike anticipating the sweetness of our partners’ embrace.”

Melbourne February 6th : Solidarity Action For Egyptian Anarchists (Australia)

February 1st, 2013

On the 6th of February we are asking for all anarchists, freethinkers & trouble makers to gather outside the building housing the Egyptian Consulate on 50 Market St, Melbourne CBD at 3:30PM in a show of solidarity for our Egyptian anarchist brothers and sisters who are currently facing serious repression from the religious fascist Morsi and his brutal Muslim Brotherhood backed regime.

The regime’s ‘justice’ apparatus have declared the Black Bloc and anarchists who first made their presence known at protests commemorating the 2nd anniversary of the Egyptian revolution as a ‘terrorist group’ and have ordered that all suspected members be arrested and detained. There have also been calls from religious extremist elements within Egypt for Black Bloc members to be beaten and executed. Read the rest of this entry »

Paris: CGT office windows smashed in solidarity with prisoners (France)

January 31st, 2013

On the night of January 28 to 29, we pierced the window of the local CGT at 1 rue de Nantes (Paris 19th).

This is a direct message to the CGT and its dirty prison warders in response to the call for solidarity with the prisoners in Roanne.

We also take this opportunity to send a warm revolutionary hug to Mike, imprisoned in Chambéry (a letter from him here).

Nb: The CGT (General Confederation of Labor), which historically has ties to both anarcho-syndicalism and the French Communist Party (PCF) is now the major trade union confederation in France. Prison guards are unionized within the CGT.

Egypt like the Sea

January 30th, 2013

Social revolution is like the sea. Its waves chase one another, crash against the obstacles they encounter, crushing them or backing down. With all the violence of an indomitable rush, they destroy, blow after blow any trace of power, of exploitation and oppression. A first wave, immense and unexpected, swept away the dictatorship of Murabak. A second one put the army that was about to take over power on its knees. A third one is rising today against the new order that the islamists are trying to impose.

The real revolutionary storm does not obey any party, any boss, any power. On the contrary, these are its irreconcilable enemies. They will be swept away as the storm intensifies. Between the social revolution that will subvert any relation based on exploitation and power and the impostors, the bosses, the masters, the political parties, the capitalist and the authoritarians of any shade, there cannot be anything other than struggle til the bitter end. Because freedom and the end of exploitation, imply the destruction of capitalism and of any power. Read the rest of this entry »

Domodedovo: Three wooden crosses cut down (Russia)

January 30th, 2013

Three wooden crosses were cut in Domodedovo area of Moscow during the nights of 25/12/12, 07/01/13 and 20/01/13. Situated near elite cottages, on the territory of a hunting resort, and near sand borrow works these symbols of religios dogmatism were standing there as a blessing upon thieves, murderers and rapists. Moreover, they are used as way stones marking the direction of further domestication and development projects. This is something we stand in opposition to.

Against clerical intrusion into nature!

Against any religion

Salute to our brother Walter Bond. It was good to hear of his recent decision about Islam. No mosques in our parts, so our iconoclast activity is focused on crazy orthodox fundamentalists.

Salute to our anti-religious comrades from Australia and UK!

Eat and Billy, we welcome you back!

Attack against gentrification by Toronto Solidarity Cell (Canada)

January 28th, 2013

Toronto Solidarity Action

Overnight, another blow was struck against the ongoing social war against the poor in the city of Toronto. The presentation center of another new boutique loft development in the heart of downtown had it’s windows smashed and front, signage and designer display kitchen paintbombed as another small gesture of our rage. We again disappeared with no trace into the night, leaving only the falling shards and a few stunned onlookers in our wake. Hopefully these witnesses will leave with a sense that there is growing resistance to, and anger towards, the ongoing commodification of every available piece of land. Land, which, we believe, belongs to everyone, regardless of the societally imposed barriers of race, gender, ability, deemed economic worth, or any other construct used to divide and oppress within today’s patriarchal society.

Is Indonesia heading towards Fascism?

January 27th, 2013

Some observations on the crisis and new terror laws.

A series of recent laws are highlighting a political trend in Indonesia. New laws on Dealing with Social Conflict and Intelligence are already ratified, and three other similar regulations are still in the pipeline: concerning National Security, Military Reserve Forces and Societal Organisations. Not only are these laws terrorising civil liberties and social movements, but they are also laying the basis for the growth of fascism in Indonesia.

The terror of ‘terrorist legislation’.

In the proposed law on societal organisations, when civil society forms groups or alliances, they are viewed as a threat to security and national politics. The proposed law would place strict controls on the growth of societal organisations, regulating both their formation and their activities. This is an attempt to restrict the freedom to organise. Under the new law, each organisation would have to be approved by the interior ministry and the law and human rights ministry, obliging them to obtain a permit to operate and make reports on their activities and the funding they receive.

Egyptian Anarchist Movement Emerges with Wave of Firebombings and Street Fights

January 25th, 2013

Update: More fotos & report on Avtonom.org

From Even If Your Shakes via anarchistnews.org

A black bloc marches in Cairo tonight [24/1], preparing for confrontations with security forces near Tahrir Square on the even of the second anniversary of the revolution.

Anarchists have been present in Egypt before, during, and after the revolution, but until today, they have yet to organize a mass grouping under the banner of anarchism. The Ultras of Egypt’s football clubs have for years been associated with anarchist ideas and actions, and they are widely credited with having initiated the level of militancy that brought down the Mubarak government in February of 2011.

Anarchist threat modeling and private data-mining for intelligence (USA)

January 22nd, 2013

On 20 January, the independent surveillance researcher Asher Wolf tweeted an astonishing link* to a private intelligence corporation’s website containing a document entitled: “Tartan Influence Model: Anarchist Groups.” The document was published by a corporation called Tartan Metrics, a division of the information security, cyberwar and surveillance company NTREPID — a company that reportedly has a contract worth millions of dollars to create fake (“sockpuppet”) Twitter accounts to spread US military propaganda. (UPDATE/Correction: The person who initially discovered this document is actually Twitter user @TelecomixBSRE, according to Wolf. Another update: Apparently @not_me was the first to discover the document.)

The “threat modeling” program appears to be intelligence and data mining software that alleges it can reveal “a hidden network of relationships,” in this case “among anarchist leaders; a network that facilitates the spread of violent and illegal tactics to the broader protest movement in the United States.” Read the rest of this entry »

Forgotten Bird of Paradise (West Papua)

January 22nd, 2013

“Our freedom fighters are poorly armed, often having to make do with spears and bows and arrows to fight the Indonesian army, yet despite our poor military equipment, we have been strong enough to stand up against Indonesia’s military machine for more than 30 years. No one can deny we are strong.” Moses Werror 1/24/96.

Forgotten Bird of Paradise is a 2009 documentary film directed by Dominic Brown, about the struggle for independence being fought in West Papua. Brown travelled and filmed in West Papua without the permission of the Indonesian authorities, putting himself in great danger. The documentary features an interview conducted with Yusak Pakage, a high profile West Papuan political prisoner recognised by Amnesty International as a prisoner of conscience. He is currently serving a ten year prison sentence for raising the West Papuan flag during a ceremony in 2004. The interview was recorded in secret by Brown during a hospital visit where Pakage was receiving treatment for torture.

There is also footage and dialogue from an OPM camp led by one of the armed resistance leaders, General Goliath Tabuni. Tabuni and his fighters speak about how Freeport mine has destroyed the land and exploits the people, how Indonesia is ruining the environment and stealing the resources with the help of foreign companies, which they then sell to the USA, UK and Australia. Indonesia spends the money on military equipment to murder those who resist. Solidarity with the West Papuan anti-colonial struggle and OPM.
