Letter from Eat & Billy, imprisoned comrades of the Long-Live Luciano Tortuga Cell – Indonesian FAI (Indonesia)

November 13th, 2011

The anarchist prisoners Eat and Billy are imprisoned comrades of the Long Live Luciano Tortuga Cell / Informal Anarchist Federation, Indonesia Section, who are currently in prison before trial, having taken responsibility for setting fire to a BRI ATM bank in Yogyakarta on 7th of October ’11, by causing an explosion. The action was declared in solidarity with Luciano Tortuga, injured anarchist combatant of Chile, with revolutionary prisoners and fighters in Indonesia and across the world, in complicity with the international clash with capitalism and hierarchy.

Despite isolated conditions and the inevitable harsh and endless interrogations, the comrades never co-operated or collaborated with the repressive apparatus, and the application of the anti-terrorist law has not diminished them. The repressive wave which the Indonesian State and the mainstream media initiated against not only them, but against also autonomous spaces and individuals, and which extends into the continued murderous practices it employs across the islands, has failed to obscure the evident : that the Indonesia State and the corporations operating there are exploiters and terrorists.

This open letter comes alongside a continued call for international solidarity with the environmental, indigenous and anti-capitalist/anti-state struggle in Indonesia, and the imprisoned comrades additionally wanted to focus attention on places like Wera (Bima) where the people are resisting an iron mine, and also the situation of renewed social war in West Papua, as the rebels and the students are escalating the conflict against the police, military and the mafia Freeport McMoran Copper & Gold Inc..

You can read a previous flyer (with multiple language translations from the excellent Greek anarchist anti-info collective Contra-Info) about the general case here (nb. there was another person arrested who was subsequently released), plus a solidarity booklet by Actforfreedom/Elephant Editions is here.

It is possible to send financial aid via ABC Berlin.

Dear comrades, with respect, love and rage

It’s been 35 days since we were caught and we are sorry for writing this letter too long as our only possible communication comes only from our friends and lovers who still have the courage to meet us here. Direct letters are impossible.

We’ve been waiting to hear some news from you all and like a strong warm breeze in this climate of repression, we once more regain back our energy and strength to hear the sound of revolutionary solidarity and a warm feeling of comradeship from all combatants and prisoners of freedom around the world – especially when we have the chance to read a newspaper about some recent insurrection in Rome, Italy, it gave us both a warm feeling that comrades are still fighting for a true revolutionary change… and the spirit of insurrectionalism is still in the air like a light of hope – in this dim atmosphere of cages of repression.

We send our hugs to all the FAI members around the world (those who are free and imprisoned) and as well CCF members in Greece, our true revolutionary and warm feelings to all of you..

On a sad note, we are truly disappointed that some our local comrades who are inspired by fear and media sensationalism which make them to retreat from the front line but let’s put this aside, as we are still convinced that they still have the ideas in their heart of resistance… that would light the darkness once more in the glimmering light of passion for rebellion.

Warm hugs and salute to all combatants in Chile, Greece, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Germany, and all of the revolutionary anarchists who never back down in the face of repression.

Revolutionary Greetings and Hugs to all of you.

Members of Long-Live Luciano Tortuga Cell – Indonesian FAI

Two members of C.C.F. and Rami Syrianos are in isolation (Greece)

November 13th, 2011

Note: Read this as well.

On 11/11 there was a disciplinary transfer of two comrades-members of C.C.F.Giorgos Polydoros and Damiano Bolano.

Obviously, the timing is not accidental, since the probability of upcoming mobilisations is festering in the prison society, because of the increased austerity measures and cuts on items of basic needs.

Comrade G.Polydoros was taken to Halkida prisons. There remaining consistent with his dignity he denied the humiliating strip search the prison-guards wanted to apply and right now he is in isolation (for the fourth time in the 7 months since that he has been imprisoned).

Comrade D.Bolano was taken to Trikala prisons, where there is also the comrade-member of C.C.F. Haris Hadjimihelakis. The two comrades demanded the obvious, to be in the same wing. At that moment their demand was not accepted and Damiano denied to enter any other wing resulting in him being taken temporarily (according to what the service said) to isolation.

Naturally, the two comrades are not going to sit with their fingers crossed… The publicization of the conditions of the imprisoned members of C.C.F. is simply the first step of a move. A move that hovers above the heads of those in charge of the “correctional system” like an axe going around… and around… and around…

P.S.: As well on 11/11 we were informed that comrade Rami Syrianos is also in isolation in Diavata prisons, where he was transferred suddenly. During the search he defended his dignity resulting in the prison-guards taking him to the public prosecutor of the prisons for disciplinary defiance.

At the same time, December 5th has been set for his trial concerning the armed expropriation of a governmental institute for which he has proudly taken the responsibility.

WE STAND NEXT TO THE ANARCHIST PRISONERS THAT HONOUR THEIR CHOICES INSIDE PRISON

SOLIDARITY – RESPECT – DIGNITY

In solidarity for the case of the R.O. C.C.F.

New indictment against the members of the R.O. CCF and revolutionary anarchist Theofilos Mavropoulos (Greece)

November 10th, 2011

Letter from the imprisoned members of the Revolutionary Organisation – Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and revolutionary anarchist Theofilos Mavropoulos

A few days ago we were summoned for a preliminary investigation by the anti-terrorist unit, in the prisons where we’re detained. This investigation concerns our possible prosecution according to Article 184 of the Penal Code, under which ‘Whoever publicly causes or triggers in any manner a felony or misdemeanor commitment, shall be punished with up to 3 years imprisonment.’ The investigation refers to the text which we had published in solidarity with the anarchist hangout Nadir.

The police’s persecution of texts is nothing new within the circles of insurrectionary anarchy. Read the rest of this entry »

Trial update of the Revolutionary Struggle, Day 3 1/11/11 (Greece)

November 10th, 2011

UPDATE ON REVOLUTIONARY STRUGGLE CASE

From Actforfreedomnow. Day 3, 1/11/11

With the repetition of the procedure P. Roumeliotis (defence advocate of K.Katsenos) asked to place his position on the objection for vagueness of the order, before the court publishes its decision. With a detailed and absolutely thorough argumentation, supported by theory but also by legislations, Romeliotis proved that there is an absolute nullity of the order and the call, because the actions the defendant is accused of have not been described and consequently he cannot defend himself, a fact that -besides the articles of the Code of Penal Procedure, which are being violated- it is also a direct violation of article. 6 paragraph 1 of the ECHR (European Convention for Human Rights), according to which a defendant should be informed in detail about the actions for which they are accused. In the particular case, we have a series of actions in which everywhere we have two perpetrators and simultaneously have seven defendants (the total minus M. Beraha) that are accused for complicity! How can the defendant defend himself, when you won’t tell him precisely what he is accused of, when he isn’t placed in the real incidents? These points were also deposited in writing by the advocate.

Attack on Kerava Police Station on the 6th of November (Finland)

November 8th, 2011

6 November 2011

We attacked the Kerava police station with fire on Sunday the 6th of November at 5 in the morning.

We threw six molotovs at the main entrance and at a separate entrance to the police parking garage.

However, we did not throw molotovs into the building because we did not want our action to bring harm to those possibly imprisoned at the station, knowing this course of action could have very well placed these people in mortal danger.

We want to take a stand against the oppression of nature, animals and life, the oppression that the police as the vanguards of the state enforce and maintain.

Organize, form affinity groups and take action!

Solidarity to all fighting for total liberation!

Solidarity to all who have been robbed of their freedom by the state!

Death to the state!

FAI – Informal Anarchist Federation – Northern chapter

FUCK THE POLICE!

Freedom Now! A Letter Appeal for Thomas Meyer-Falk (Germany)

November 4th, 2011

If you fight against the state, if you fight for a better world, fight for freedom, there is a chance that you will get thrown to the cage – that is the place where I stay. For over 15 years now. In the infernal regions, kept in isolation for security reasons, for more than 10 years. I was arrested in 1996, and only released into the general prison population in 2007.

In October 1996 I was arrested after a bank robbery to raise money for left-wing projects – legal and illegal ones. I was convicted to 11 and a ½ years and P.D. (Preventive Detention, based on a Nazi-law from 1933 which permits the state to keep me in custody for a life-time, as long as they believe that I am a “threat to public safety”). Because I fought back strong they kept me in isolation for more than 10 years; I have spent the last 4 years in the general prison population, but I refuse to cooperate with the state nor accept forced labour.

Letter from Kyle Major from the psychological torture isolation units of England (UK)

November 4th, 2011

Here I am in the harsh and psychological torture unit (aka Close Supervision Centre CSC) at HMP Woodhill, in a high control cell with a six-officer riot unlock. You will have been reading about CSC recently in MOJUK and FRFI articles by John Bowden, Kevan Thakrar, which are all true.

As a prisoner experiencing it at the present time it is very unpleasant only two days ago a prisoner on the unit Danny Walker more or less amputated his arm. Requiring emergency hospital treatment where his arm had to be stitched back together and an operation to reconnect his nerves and arteries. Read the rest of this entry »

Words of Solidarity with Conspiracy of Cells of Fire from some members of Russian Earth Liberation Front / FAI-IRF (Russia)

November 2nd, 2011

So many of us captured, thrown into prisons, tortured, wounded or even dead. It’s getting more and more difficult to mention every comrade in each communique. Yet they are all worth mentioning, they shouldn’t fade into obscurity of silence of prison cells. Names spin in the head… People we’ve never known, but their dedication and sacrifice for the cause resonates with our worldview, with our own cause. And faces of friends we’ll never see again. Dead, murdered by the System. Is it everywhere like this? Are we all alone in this hostile world? Are there other mutineers, saboteurs, discontent? How do we get in touch with all this censorship?

How do we let them know with all this conspiracy of silence in media and society, even among political left? How do we communicate? We don’t know their language even. How do we write? Can they translate from Russian? OK, let’s just give it a try, we’ll see where this’ll go soon enough… Read the rest of this entry »

Words of support to R.O. Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and all imprisoned revolutionary anarchists from Conspiracy of Cells of Fire: Russian Cell / FAI-IRF (Russia)

November 2nd, 2011

While reading letters written by imprisoned comrades and their communiques, we can feel with all our hearts their hatred towards status quo, their anxiety to create another world by destroying this one. Each line of such texts flows like a stream through your veins. It gets right to the core and stays forever in your soul.

While walking down cold and dark streets of the metropolises, we never forget about hundreds of imprisoned comrades and thousands who have died. Sorrow mixed with anger channeled through a prism of revolutionary consciousness give us a huge pulse to make revolution a reality. Read the rest of this entry »

Solidarity with Cristobal Franke (Chile)

November 1st, 2011

Roughly translated from Liberacion Total.

On Friday 28 October, our comrade Cristobal Franke (“Mono”), was beaten by three prison guards.

The situation occurred around 16:45 pm, Mono was dozing in his cell when the bastards entered carrying out a search. When one of them asked if he had something of value, Cristobal says “yes”, “their money”. The guards replied without humour by beating Mono and throwing him down a flight of stairs.

Communique for the bombing of the Athens Stock Exchange – 2/9/2009 (Greece)

October 28th, 2011

From boubourAs / actforfreedomnow!, a communique previously untranslated into English claiming responsibility for the direct action against the Athens Stock Exchange by RO- Revolutionary Struggle on 2 September 2009. The release of this communique comes as the global social struggle against the capitalist system threatens to develop to a new level, shaking the entire legitimacy of the exploitative banking system. The RO- Revolutionary Struggle in their texts and actions reveal a foretelling vision of a free society of equality and harmonious co-operation without the violent parasitism and coercion imposed on us by the super-elite.

From the Revolutionary Organisation – Revolutionary Struggle

On the 2nd of September in the early morning we attacked the temple of money, the stock exchange of Athens, by placing an expropriated van with 150 kilos of ammonium nitrate (AN/FO). This action is the continuation of a strategy of attacks with large quantities of explosives in order to hurt the infrastructure of multinational and local capital, a strategy initiated the 18th of February last year with the attempt on the central offices of Citibank on Nea Kifissia and continued with the bomb attack on the Eurobank branch on Vouliagmenis avenue, Argiroupoli on May 12th last year.

Maybe the explosion, despite the enormous amount of damage it caused to the building, did not stop the operation of the stock market since it did not destroy the central software system, but we believe that it worked, and it will continue to work negatively on the market and on the psychology of all kinds of opportunists, since the message was clear and was received by economic power as a whole: those responsible for the current crisis, the major shareholders, the golden boys, the capitalists, will pay for their criminal activity, and no State mechanism can protect them.
