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.

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 »

Hello, my name is Walter Bond. I am currently serving a prison sentence in the United States for 3 A.L.F. arsons totaling nearly 2 million dollars’ worth of damage.

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.

Report from the trial of the armed group Revolutionary Struggle, Athens (Greece)

October 28th, 2011

October 24 2011

Heavy accusations against the capitalist economic-social system and the urban system of power, the state and its persecutory mechanisms were made by the members of Revolutionary Struggle at the first (substantial) day of their trial, when the chairman gave them the word in order to place themselves in short concerning the charges. Their statements were anything but short. For over half an hour, Nikos Maziotis, Pola Roupa and Kostas Gournas (we mention them according to how they mentioned in the court brief and in the order they spoke) addressed charges against the system and defended their political choices, transforming the room of the terror-court into a step for their opinions.

General Strike Called In Oakland – Calls For US & Global General Strike Nov. 2 (Global)

October 27th, 2011

325 receives and transmits : Source

Below is the proposal passed by the Occupy Oakland General Assembly on Wednesday October 26, 2011 in reclaimed Oscar Grant Plaza. 1607 people voted. 1484 voted in favor of the resolution, 77 abstained and 46 voted against it, passing the proposal at 96.9%. The General Assembly operates on a modified consensus process that passes proposals with 90% in favor and with abstaining votes removed from the final count.

PROPOSAL:

We as fellow occupiers of Oscar Grant Plaza propose that on Wednesday November 2, 2011, we liberate Oakland and shut down the 1%.

We propose a city wide general strike and we propose we invite all students to walk out of school. Instead of workers going to work and students going to school, the people will converge on downtown Oakland to shut down the city.

All banks and corporations should close down for the day or we will march on them.

While we are calling for a general strike, we are also calling for much more. People who organize out of their neighborhoods, schools, community organizations, affinity groups, workplaces and families are encouraged to self organize in a way that allows them to participate in shutting down the city in whatever manner they are comfortable with and capable of.

The whole world is watching Oakland. Let’s show them what is possible.

The Strike Coordinating Council will begin meeting everyday at 5pm in Oscar Grant Plaza before the daily General Assembly at 7pm. All strike participants are invited.

Stay tuned for much more information and see you next Wednesday.

Since this announcement, social media has been abuzz with calls for a US-wide General Strike and a Global General Strike!

Oct 8th, Anti-Capitalist Demo Report from Bern (Switzerland)

October 27th, 2011

On October 8th, at the completion of the campaign ‘Keep in motion – Abolish capitalism’, over 150 people demonstrated in Bern against the State and the Capital. After more than a month in which various counter-information actions were held about the evils of capitalism, anti-capitalists/anarchists took their criticism to the streets again.

The protest rally flowed calmly, apart from two small incidents. For instance, independent city councilor Jimy Hofer approached a group of about 60 protesters. He first addressed to them verbally, tried to snatch their front banner, but also turned violent against a protester. Only then, pepper spray was used to ward off his attack.

The gathering was scheduled at 16.00 o’clock outside Heiliggeistkirche at Bahnhofplatz. Demonstrators were welcomed, while examples were used to indicate which damages capitalism inflicts on a daily basis. With slogans and fireworks, the demo went through the Altstadt (old town). When the protesters block reached Kornhausplatz, people had a chance to hear about the anarchist struggle for a world without State and Capital. They put up a banner there, which read SCHEISS AUF WAHLKAMPF, WIR WOLLEN KLASSENKAMPF (‘Fuck the electioneering; we want class struggle’).

In Hirschengraben demonstrators and passers-by got more familiar with the critique on capitalism and its guarantor, the bourgeois State. It also became apparent why reforms will never lead to a substantial improvement in living conditions. The protest march ended in Bahnhofplatz.

This demonstration marked the completion of the anti-capitalist campaign and the ongoing struggle against a system where every day tens of thousands are starving while others accumulate billions via property rights; against a system in which the vast majority is forced to sell their labour-power; against a system where a small minority possesses and determines everything; against a system which goes further without taking account of nature, animals and humans.

For a self-organized society without domination.

For the social revolution!
