Mexico City: New charges against anarchists Amélie, Fallon and Carlos, imprisoned since January 5th, 2014 (Mexico)

May 18th, 2014

On the morning of May 16th, comrades Amélie and Fallon were notified that they would be taken to the Reclusorio Sur (Mexico City’s Southern Penitentiary) to testify on new charges under federal order.

At around 8am, both were transferred to the court, where they met comrade Carlos.

After waiting almost all morning, they were finally informed that an arrest warrant was executed for the offense of damage to others’ property, in the form of “arson in a building with some person inside.” The three comrades did not make a statement, and once the hearing was over, they were brought back to the prisons where they’re being held since February 2014 (Carlos to the Reclusorio Oriente, Amélie and Fallon to Santa Martha), after having spent 40 days in federal custody through the arraignment procedure.

May 18th, 2014

images

 

On Thursday, May 8, it was scheduled for the defense witnesses of A. Mitsousias, G. Karagiannidis, K.Sakkas and Stella Antoniou to testify, individuals for whom, CCF has made clear, that they have nothing to do with the group.

At first, the judge read a document, testified by A. Mitrousias’ defense, which proved that A. Mitrousias is attending Open University classes while being in jail, in the field of humanitarian studies. Afterwards, some documents were presented by Karagiannidis, proving that during the time, in which the arrest warrants for the comrades of CCF were issued, he was at the graduation ceremony of the university he was attending as a student.

After that, the comrades of CCF made a short statement regarding their refusal to use what they called “democratic right of having defense witnesses”. Read the rest of this entry »

Phoenix Project #12 : ICR – FAI/IRF take responsibility for arson barrage in solidarity with Adriano Antonacci, Gianluca Iacovacci, other worldwide anarchist prisoners and the combative memory of Sebastian O. Seguel (Indonesia)

May 16th, 2014

Phoenix Project #12 [previous acts here.]

“Our words, carve today like a blade and our actions burn the bridges with yesterday… With tenacity and will, until we murder authority.”

- Conspiracy of Cells of Fire: Prisoners Cell, Andreas Tsavdaridis and Sypros Mandylas, (Letter to Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai)

The declarations of war against authority won’t stop with one single action nor one single letter of publication. It is a totality of our lives, each one of us, who stands here as egoists under the name of International Conspiracy for Revenge (ICR) as part of the Informal Anarchist Federation/International Revolutionary Front. We won’t step back, even if we are isolated or deserted by the other “revolutionary anarchists” who devoted themselves to the dreams of society, those who let their own values as anarchists be imposed wholly by reformism, negotiation and conformity. We are out of their league and we won’t play their game. We have our own, one of violence and direct action. With nihilist comradeship through fire and fists to our comrades locked behind bars everywhere, in Europe, in South America and Mexico. Our comradeship also goes to those anonymous comrades who went underground to carry on a constant confrontation with Power.

Recent Situation Concerning the General Election in Indonesia

Since the first New Year fireworks started, all forms of oppression revelled in the curiosity and impatience before the general election (both the parliamentary election and the presidential election). We saw how the oppressors and the oppressed were walking hand-in-hand to celebrate what they call: The time of new hope for a better change. They printed the faces of those who are running for parliament and others are debating what should they do to contribute to make democracy better than they have it nowadays. Mass and social media all filled with empty words and the camouflage of how the general election will bring the oppressed to gain their freedom. And that is definitely right, because Indonesians will have the chance to choose who will be their oppressors for the next five years.

We are not even surprised when we found out that those who claimed themselves as anti-authoritarians were also merely trapped into the logic of giving your voice during an election or abstaining.

They producing memes, producing posters, shouting it out, organizing people, just not to vote. To say no to voting boxes, to say no to the parliaments candidates; they say no to the parties, they say no to every infrastructure of the voting system, but forget one important thing. To say no to the boundaries that kept them away from real freedom. They wish a different result by trying the similar way as used by Power. And how it can lead you to freedom? A question that doesn’t need an answer, since it is useless to question the choices of these people.

Anarchism is dead. And these people are the ones who proudly carry the coffin of their so-called ideology: Anarchism. An ideology of the weak and cowardly who called us “obsessed with violence” to cover up their fear. They are afraid to arm themselves and walk alone into battle, a long battle without end or goal.

And how different are we from these mobs?
We performed our disagreement with both those mobs by burning down two offices of the general election committee located in Donggala, Central Sulawesi on 16th April. We won’t stay away and let our enemy play around with their party of democracy. We directly sent our anger and transformed it into fire. We are not abstaining in this war. We attack.

We are not those anarchists who went to voting spots and painted slogans and chants on the ballot boxes. We won’t smear our values by letting our finger be painted with purple ink, a sign used by the authorities to identify who voted and those who did not. We won’t let one single inch in our body be polluted by our enemy. On the contrary, we attacked them without compromise.

On another chance, we sabotaged two cars (28th April) which were planned to transfer the ballots from South East Minahasa district to the capital city of province, Manado. We hit them not only to cause delay, but for our further action, which we cancelled because of an intervention by some “good citizens”. Next time, we will hit those who prevent us from our actions. With violence, of course.

Abstaining by not giving our voices is not enough for us. We want to bring this confrontation to be more wild than mere words or posters. We want to speak through fire, as we mentioned in one of our communiques before. But we don’t invite anyone to join us. We are not interested to have new members. We are not a party nor an anarchist collective. We are an armed group of the tendency of violence. To attack, and not to open a dialogue with our enemies.

Solidarity and Fire

During our campaign, we targeted some important spots which were never targeted before. We are expanding our targets by adding some more variety to them. On 19th April, for example, we burnt down the branch of the national electric office in Madiun, East Java. This action is part of our campaign to hit the vital spots of the enemy. By causing as much damage as we can. Causing terror as wide as we can. We set the fire early morning 3.00am, and let the flames do the rest. Awakening people in the morning with fire is our way to show our sarcasm to the workers who need to get up in the early morning for eight hours of slavery.

We chose this target as our way to send a message to Adriano Antonacci and Gianluca Iacovacci. Both are Italian comrades arrested and accused for several actions claimed by Anti-Civilization Subversive Individualities FAI/IRF. And our fire is specifically dedicated to two of them, to share our thoughts and dreams, our values and solidarity and to let both of them know that they are in our hearts. We will never forget comrades who are captured by the enemy.
And revenge is the only way to reply to this repression.

We continued our campaign by putting a similar incendiary device in the national electric company located in Semarang, Central Java, in early morning 23rd April, which failed to ignite. In fact, we swarmed over the security guard that came by when we were sneaking into the office. He is lucky we decided to let him down and not put an end to his life.

It’s not a mercy from us, but merely a warning that we are not playground kids who are playing around with fire. If one steps before our path, we won’t regret to help you to meet your end. All snoopers or wannabe good-citizens are part of the enemy for us. And please take it serious and do not say that we never warned you beforehand.

In the early part of this month, we continued our campaign by attacking another three power plants in three different places. One in Ternate (5th May), North Maluku and another two in Ambon (8th May), Maluku. We would like the enemy to know that all the regions are not safe and we will attack more and more next time.

All these actions are dedicated to our beloved comrades, Conspiracy of Cells of Fire; Prisoners Cell, Andreas Tsavdaridis – Spyros Mandylas, Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Marco Camenisch, Monica Caballero, Fransisco Solar, Tamara Sol Vergara, Fredy Fuentevilla – Marcelo Villarroel – Juan Aliste Vega, Hans Niemeyer, Alvonso Alvial – Hermez Gonzales, Alfredo Cospito – Nicola Gai, Giannis Mihailidis, Grigoris Sarafoudis, Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, Alexandros Mitrousias, Dimitris Politis, Fivos Harisis, Tasos Theofilou, Argiris Dalios, Giorgos Karagiannidis, Babis Tsilianidis, Giannis Naxakis, Nikos Romanos.

And to remember our brother, Sebastian O. Seguel, who fell in the battle against the enemy in Chile. These acts of revenge are for you, brother.

Through these actions, we want to re-call our comrades of FAI-IRF to once again strike and re-launch the Phoenix Project. This time, harder than before. We want to call all active cells of FAI/IRF to once again go to reinforce the war, this time until the end.

Violence of war against the existent
Down with Society
Fire to the enemies

Arrests, detentions and interrogations – World Hockey Championship 2014 in Minsk (Belarus)

May 8th, 2014

Several hours left before the official start of the World Hockey Championship 2014 in Belarus. Event that was planned in 2009 during another political thaw between the West and Lukashenko was constantly criticized by human rights and political organizations for support of Lukashenko’s political regime. Many groups called national hockey teams to boycott the championship, however International Federation of Ice Hockey decided once again that sport is standing apart from politics and retained the right for hosting championship in Minsk. But it is impossible to keep sport business away from politics.

For Lukashenko this championship is a unique way to legitimize Belarusian political system on behalf of tournament participants. On the one hand, we see harsh critics of the regime from the West, on the other hand, Minsk today is full of national flags of teams participating in the show. In this atmosphere the political tensions seem to be gone and everyone is going to enjoy the truce. Read the rest of this entry »

Anarchism in the context of civil war (Ukraine)

May 8th, 2014

On Friday, the 2nd of May, the House of Trade Unions in Odessa caught on fire. Altogether at least 42 people lost their lives during the clashes in the city, most of them in the fire and the others in streetfights. There is an excellent Russian language, eyewitness account of the events available here.

Events began to unfold when armed pro-Russian AntiMaidan fighters attacked a demonstration organised by football hooligans with nationalist sympathies. This attack resulted in lethalities, but soon the pro-Russians were overpowered. They escaped back to their protest camp in the Kulikovo field, but pro-Kiev demonstrators followed and lit the protest camp on fire. The pro-Russians then escaped to the House of the Trade Unions, which soon caught on fire. The fire spreading, is visible in this video. At the 2 minute mark, you can see a flame behind a closed window, making it plausible that some of the fires were started from the inside. For example, due to accidents with Molotov cocktails which were used by both sides during the fight. However, you can also see pro-Ukrainian nationalists throwing Molotov cocktails, making them at least partially responsible for the fire. Read the rest of this entry »

Signs Of Life In Australia : A Chronology of Recent Anarchist & Anti-Colonial Activity Down Under

May 7th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

*Note : this is an edited version of a post that appeared on an Australian underground electronic music blog, we thought it was of interest to the wider anarchist-insurrectionist community worldwide.

Things are heating up in this country with one of the most unpopular governments in Australian history now in charge – although they came to power with a landslide victory so go figure! ‘Austerity’ is the name of the game for Australia’s current batch of ultra-conservative crypto-corporate overlords which means increases in the cost of living & cuts to every social service you can think of along with the customary scapegoating of immigrants, the indigenous & other vulnerable members of society – unless you are rich and connected then you and your hard earned finances are in the firing line, and let’s not forget the absolute rape of Australia’s resources & natural environment that has gone into overdrive since these bastards took power and the arse-kissing of corporate & foreign powers as they continue to loot the continent.

Prison: abolish or destroy? (Deranged)

May 7th, 2014

To provoke discussion about the issues contained within, and sharpen the attack against the existent, we reproduce the full text of this newly retrieved article from Deranged #0. Deranged #0 was published a few years ago by random anarchists in London. In UK this year there is a ‘Prison Abolition’ campaign and conference[1], with prior workshops happening in Bristol soon[2]. The post-industrial cybernetic society of the present and near-future, has as it’s aim the abolition of prisons in the name of rehabilitation and social reconfiguration. New technologies of social control have made it possible for the incarceration of the entire society through exclusion, remote tracking, private security companies, surveillance, “community punishment” and the securitisation of the social environment. Which is why as anti-civilisation anarchist-insurrectionalists and nihilists, we don’t advocate the “abolition” of prisons, but their destruction, as part of a polymorphous attack against every aspect of the State, Society and Civilisation. We think that there are no real “anarchist” solutions to the “anti-social problem”, other than the constant war against power and continual anarchist revolution. Towards the point of no-return and freedom – Attack the prison-society.


The plan is to empty the prisons of the great majority of prisoners and throw them back into the prison-society using the technology of isolation and control; and for the minority of irreducible rebels, keep them inside for ever. What is being presented as ‘progress’ is nothing other than the advance and spread of repression. This is what the abolitionists are really subscribing to: ‘change everything so that everything remains the same’.

It has been said, not mistakenly, that those who do most harm in this world are those who try to do most good. Still today, with increasing isolation and atomisation of individuals, there are people around who decide to ruin their lives with excessive altruism.

Always with the best of intentions, they set out to try to remedy the ills they see before them. They can even be paid by the State for doing so, and this is one of the great swindles of capital: it imposes conditions of untold suffering, and, through its ally the State, paves the way for it to be prolonged in time, rationalised and reformed.

Stop NATO : Anarchists shut down Barclays Bank in Cardiff (Wales, UK)

May 7th, 2014

As part of our coverage of anti-NATO events this year in UK, we reproduce this report:

The campaigners formed a Radical Bloc on the Trades Council-organised May Day march, breaking from the main route to take action against the bank instead of going to listen to speeches by union officials at the Trades Council’s rally.

A local anarchist and member of the Stop NATO Cymru campaign group said: “We took part in the May Day march to draw attention to the struggles of workers all over the world against exploitation and violent oppression which is exacerbated by arms producers here in the UK.

29/04/2014 – Phocis: Parcel bomb sent to the police precinct of Itea (Greece)

May 3rd, 2014

Inter Arma received and translated:

THE MIDNIGHT EXPRESS

i. Journey of Death: Malandrino Prisons – Itea’s Police Precinct

The Conspiracy of Cells of Fire claims responsibility for sending a book trapped with explosives to the police precinct of Itea.

Itea’s police precinct, which we chose to strike, is not just an enemy military base. It’s the place where prisoner Ilia Kareli was beaten and tortured, before he was delivered to his last executioners, at Nigrita prisons.

What happened in the penitentiary of the police precinct of Itea, was intentionally concealed. The prison guards of Nigrita prison insisted that they received the prisoner in very bad shape, before they paint their own hands with blood. But an executioner cannot incriminate another one. For this, irrefutable witness remains always the life itself and its miserable print at the basement of police detention facilities. There, in the concrete tombs, where human shadows are stacked upon one another for days, weeks, months…

People who are forgotten by daylight, as their sun is the yellow bulb on the ceiling, that never goes out. They are only remembered by the cells’ moldy walls, that are buried within the blood, despair and groans from the beatings of the uniformed pigs.

If these walls had a voice, the ugliness would be ashamed of itself. But you don’t narrate ugliness, you strike it. As a slogan in the streets says “Action replaces tears”. For this, we decided once again to act and hit the enemy in his face, in his own base.

ii. …Last stop Nigrita prisons…

In Nigrita prisons, in Serres, the “welcoming committee” of prison guards was waiting for its victim. A herd of hyenas ready to finish off the work of the previous tormentors. Cowardly and sadistic executioners picked their prey chained and for three-four hours taught him the correctional method and legal culture to his death. Of course, after Kareli’s assassination and the arrest of the prison guards, they started to snitch on each other and pretended to having regret.

We know that especially in the provincial closed prisons, several prison guards not only are they not ashamed of their job, but they behave like little tyrants instead, speaking derogatory to the prisoners and humiliating or even beating them. It seems that they act with the assurance of immunity, provided by the fact that they live away from the metropolis so they will probably think of themselves to be untouchable by the armed hand of the urban guerrillas. But this miserable tribe of shepherds and drunkards is quite wrong. The enemy always has a name and address, wherever he is hiding.

iii. International route: Stammheim – Guantanamo – Domokos

After the escape of urban guerilla Christodoulos Ksiros, the former commander – minister of Justice, and now puppet of Dendias, proceeded to announce the operation of a maximum security prison in Domokos.

Shortly after it, the proposal for a new bill regarding special detention conditions of type C was announced to be applied to most of closed prisons.

A guillotine-law for the political prisoners, the accused for the so called “organized crime” – 60% of prisoners is accused for “organized crime/criminal organization”- and the recalcitrant prisoners.

No one, of course, wondered how the whole bill does not even include a paragraph regarding construction-building changes that would confirm the title it’s been given, i.e. a bill for “maximum security prisons”. That occurs because maximum security prisons have been a reality for years in Greece.

All new closed type prisons of the last years are modern cement graves made of concrete and railings, built in the middle of nowhere. Even the sky is hidden by barbed mesh, while cameras watch every move of the prisoners.

The reality therefore belies the rhetoric of the authorities. This is not high-security prisons, but ones of utmost punishment. All the arrangements proposed by the subservient of Dendias have to do with the operation of a new prison inside the existing one, without the right to take a leave, without visiting, without communication with the outside world. This is a total deletion of prisoners meant to be disposed there. This is a deletion of senses and consciousness. This is an old trick of authority. A careful psychiatric/scientific version of retribution/revenge of democracy against those who dare to challenge it. The white cells of Stammheim, where the urban guerillas of RAF were murdered in West Germany, are ancestors of Domokos. Guantanamo is the embodiment of the American model. Loss of senses, communication, consciousness. A death sentence in replay.

Meanwhile, the “construction” of high security prisons prefigures the construction of a paramount prison society. Whatever is being experimentally implemented on prisoners today – the guinea pigs of scientists of law and order- will tomorrow be tested in the social machine. Since most of the economical illusions tend to recede increasingly because of the crisis, what will emerge is the zero tolerance and law and order doctrine. It is the passage from the ruins of the social state to the police one.

This moment, however, inside the Greek galleys of democracy, something seems to be moving…

The prisoners – although we do not like generalizations of collective subjects – have been participating in a large mobilization inside the walls, against the bill regarding the C type prisons: Abstinence of common meal, night mobilization, noun time protests etc. Via their mobilization, the prisoners refuse to accept the special conditions of isolation as a condition of life that the state prepares for them. In this struggle they are not alone…

iv. The call

Unfortunately, luck turned its back to us once again. While the package arrived at the heart of the police department’s snake nest [on April 29, 2014], a cop realized the true intentions of the ‘sender’. As a result, the EOD Section was called, in order to neutralize the bomb-book we sent them. This creates a negative legacy for the methodology and practice of parcel-bombs in Greece, as our aim is to be effective and not spend much time in symbolism. From now on, much will change. Soon we will return.

Tracing the paths of attack, we meet in practice with other fighters from completely different origins, who, with their own means, want to derail the route of maximum security prisons design. So, a salute to the fighters of the organization “Zero Tolerance” and consider our action as a small contribution to their own “revolutionary call” they promoted after the arson of Michelaki’s political office.

Of course, we wholeheartedly dedicate this gesture attack of us – which unfortunately remained incomplete – to our ten imprisoned brothers and sister of the prison cell: Panagiotis, Olga, Giorgos, Damianos, Gerasimos, Theofilos, Mihalis, Haris, Giorgos, Christos. We also dedicate it to the member of FAI A. Tsavdaridis and the anarchist comrade S. Mandilas, prosecuted for the “Phoenix Project”.

At the same time, we send our solidarity with all means to the wanted urban guerrilla Christodoulos Ksiros. Christodoulos practiced the phrase “ONCE A GUERILLA, ALWAYS A GUERILLA”… From clandestinity now an assault call. It does not really matter to us that sometimes the words do not match, and often sound so different. We do not belong to pseudo-ideologues drowning in words, without ever having been tested in practice.

The proposal of Ch. Ksiros reveals a crossroad – for those able to see it. An attack crossroad where people from different paths with separate experiences can meet. But we get to talking … From now on we will continue with expressing ourselves through action for the “call.” We also send our solidarity to the political prisoners who have taken responsibility for their participation in armed groups.

Finally, because our compass always remain ‘stuck’ to the orientation of the international conspiracy of the Informal Anarchist Federation , we could not forget to send our fraternal greetings to the two imprisoned comrades of FAI in Italy, Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai, who have taken the responsibility for the shots against senior member of a nuclear company. We also send our insurrectionary solidarity to Gianluca Iacovacci, who has taken responsibility for the FAI actions against targets of power and is held with the anarchist Adriano Antonacci, who is also accused of the same case. The two comrades are imprisoned in different Italian jails and a TV-trial will take place against them without being able to meet. That means that they will be up for through telecommunication while being hundreds of miles away from the court. Their hardest isolation is arranged this way.

At the same time, the official Italian movement is unconcerned with their case and has put them on the sidelines. These are familiar situations, as reformists everywhere, and in Greece, are of the same breed.

Alongside, this – incomplete – action of us is part of our participation in international call for solidarity to the imprisoned Italian comrades, which will take place from 16th to 22nd of May.

We also salute all the imprisoned anarchists of praxis worldwide: Monica Caballero, Francisco Solar, Gabriel Pombo Da Silva and Claudio Lavazza in Spain. Carlos, Amelie and Fallon in Mexico. Tamara Sol, Alfonso Alvial, Hermes Gonzalez and the charged with the «Security Case» [Caso Security] in Chile. Damien Camélio in France, Marco Camenisch in Switzerland and Ilya Romanov in Russia.

Honor to Sebastian Oversluij, who was killed during an armed robbery at a bank in Chile.

EVERYTHING CONTINUES. SOON WE WILL BE BACK….

Berlin: Phoenix Project #11 – Autonomous Cell “Christos Kassimis” takes responsibility for several attacks (Germany)

April 30th, 2014

via contrainfo [see previous acts]:

Phoenix Project: Smoke signals from Berlin

“The fire comes into your cities, into your nights. From our spirit within, we carve its path towards all of you. It will warm our friends with solidarity and will ignite their zest for action. It will turn our enemy into ashes. Imprint us well in your memory. We want your heart. No matter who you are. No matter who I am either. Maybe the Conspiracy will turn both of us into ashes and at the same time fill us with life. What counts is the path we are going, and that we take this path because we have the freedom to choose. This freedom is nothing to be fought for but rather evolves in the mind. What comes afterwards is not freedom but the power over one’s own life. We do not discuss this; this is what we fight for.”(CCF)[1]

Responsibility claim for some arsons of the past weeks in Berlin

On April 8th, 2014 we torched a vehicle of the municipal regulatory authority, and the car of a security company, near the main railway station in Berlin.

Berlin’s municipal regulatory authorities are being tasked by the normal cops to persecute administrative offenses and to keep their eyes and ears open in the everyday life of the metropolis. Small, lousy snoopers equipped with radio transmitter and pepper spray. They work, just like the cops, together with private security companies. At the main railway station, they share a parking lot designated for officials with a security firm right next to a police station.

We also take responsibility for the arson at an embassy vehicle belonging to a Greek female diplomat, on April 24th in Berlin’s district Dahlem, which is filled with villas.

Diplomatic representatives of a State are exactly the right address for fiery mailings; this rubs away their feeling of superiority and invulnerability, same as it happened recently with the German ambassador in Athens, when shots were fired at his house. The State itself is the problem, something which many fighters of sectional struggles do not take into consideration. Nazis are State; armament and nuclear technology are State; climate change and poverty are also State.

With our action we negate the State’s monopoly on violence.

Germany takes a position which promotes repression in regard to the situation of migration policies in Greece. It’s not enough for the German politics that a majority of the refugees who arrive in Greece end up in concentration camps and that they are hunted and killed by Nazis, with or without uniform. The German politicians consider the few ones, who manage to cross the Greek border alive, as a threat to their rich white world. So, for example, the former German Minister of the Interior, Friedrich, demands stronger border controls and tougher action against those who, because of their home’s exploitation by Western societies, are forced to escape war, hunger and repression. The practical support of this mass murder that takes place at European borders is visible to everyone when Germany’s detectives of the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) are stationed in Greek airports, in order to pass their knowledge in Racial Profiling on to their Greek colleagues. The German governmental apparatus has supported the murders at European borders not only by sending personnel but also by pressing towards agreements at the European level, such as the Dublin II regulation.

On August 10th, 2013 a riot broke out in Amygdaleza, a concentration camp which is located 25km north of Athens, where migrants are held captive by the Greek State. The prisoners set their mattresses and cells on fire to protest against the conditions in the camp, guards were attacked, and many migrants tried to break out of the prison —about ten prisoners temporarily escaped.

Solidarity to prisoners

We greet the prisoners Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, Dimitris Politis, Yannis Michailidis, Nikos Romanos, who were arrested on February 1st, 2013, accused of double robbery in Velventos, Kozani.

Our solidarity also goes out to Fivos Harisis, Argyris Ntalios, Yannis Naxakis and Grigoris Sarafoudis, who were arrested for the same case[2] in Nea Filadelfeia, Athens.

Force and strength to our brothers and our sister, Damiano Bolano, Haris Hadjimihelakis, Giorgos Polydoros, Panagiotis Argyrou, Theofilos Mavropoulos, Christos Tsakalos, Giorgos Nikolopoulos, Michalis Nikolopoulos and Olga Ekonomidou.[3]

Solidarity to
Tasos Theofilou
Theofilos Mavropoulos
Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar

Freedom for all prisoners!

In memory of Sebastián Oversluij, who fell in battle against the capitalist system. Freedom for Hermes González and Alfonso Alvial. Freedom for Tamara Sol!

Strength, force and courage to all people who are fighting. For all the migrants that set off to break through Fortress Europe. All those who have fallen. All the unnamed. All those who fight the pigs in the streets of Athens.

Against the construct of borders and nations. Against prisons! For freedom! For anarchy!

Autonomous Cell “Christos Kassimis”

Christos Kassimis [member of the Revolutionary People’s Struggle (ELA)] was killed by cops in Athens, during an attempted attack on the German company AEG on the 20th of October 1977. The action was in response to the murder of prisoners [three members of the RAF] in Stammheim.

Translators’ notes: [1] we translated the words from German as best we could, however the exact origin of this quotation is unknown to us; [2] for the case of Velventos, Fivos Harisis and Argyris Ntalios (not all four of them); [3] apparently the name of Gerasimos Tsakalos was inadvertently omitted.

Anarchie: zivil oder subversiv?

April 30th, 2014

Ich will hier (aus Mangel an Alternativen) eine Diskussion provozieren, über den Begriff „ziviler Anarchismus“ und in Analogie „zivile Anarchisten“. Zivil hier im Sinne, des zivilisierten, also domestizierten Staatsbürgers.

Ich habe einerseits hier ein paar Gedanken festgehalten, sowie das Vorwort der kürzlich von Dark Matter Publications und 325 veröffentlichten Broschüre Anarchy: Civil or Subversive übersetzt.

Keine sozialen Anarchisten, zivile Anarchisten!

Einleitend eine Begriffserklärung. Unter Citoyennisme/Citoyennismus versteht man die Ideologie der Staatsbürger (Citoyens). Definition: 1. Der Glaube, dass Demokratie (Also auch Basis-/Direkte/Radikale,…) dem Kapitalismus entgegenstellt werden kann, 2. die Raffinierung[1] des Staates (oder einer souveränen Struktur), damit diese Politik umgesetzt wird, 3. das Volk, also die Staatsbürger als die aktive Basis der Politik.

Also jene (Staats-)Bürger, die etwas gegen korrupte Politiker haben, aber den Staat eigentlich ganz nice finden oder sich ihm zumindest bedienen. Man kann Phänomene wie die Occupy-Bewegung oder die Indignados darunter fassen. Aber genauso z.b Antifas (die sich freuen, wenn der Staat Naziorganisationen verbietet oder Nazis wegsperrt), (Radikal-)Feministinnen (wenn sie vom Souverän das Recht auf Abtreibung einfordern), oder Antira-Aktivisten (wenn sie vom Souverän das Recht auf Bewegungsfreiheit fordern).

Night-time stalking of Bristol fascists – EDL Chris Pugh’s car vandalised and fascist hang-out Apple Tree pub smashed (UK)

April 29th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

Some local fascist haunts have been hunted down in our areas. This is to combat continuing fascist stirrings like racist assaults, intimidation and graffiti here in Bristol* and elsewhere. The far-right will be fought in the daytime like in Brighton last Sunday, or at night when we choose.

EDL Fascist Chris Pugh plays as DJ around Bristol pubs under the name of The Last Resort, and runs a retro shop under the same name on the Wells Road. His street stall in St.Nicholas market ceased trading after being publicly paintbombed on a Saturday by anti-fascists. His shop is a few minutes from his house in Knowle West (47 Salcombe Rd), the stomping ground of his youth. So, on the night of Tuesday 15th April, all four tyres were punctured on his Grey Jaguar car, and body work scratched. It’s the least we can do for him right now.

Two days later, at the Apple Tree pub in Philips street, off Bedminister parade, two downstairs windows and one upstairs were smashed at sunrise. The pub is a consecutive meeting place of EDL organisers, such as Mickey Bayliss, who organised the EDL demo in central Bristol last year as their South-West co-ordinator.

Attack the racists and fascists, history has always proved that they’ll be the allies of the bosses, patriarchs and the state, pretending to speak for the white underdog. It’s a mistake to let them fester.

Lastly, across the channel in Calais fascists have fallen back for the moment after an international call-out to fight their repeated attacks on squats and migrants, though the bigger enemy remains the authorities and the state.

Solidarity to Damien Camelio also in France doing time for burning buildings used by the army, the prison service, National Front, and calling to arms against repression in all forms.

Neither Left nor Right – Anti-State and Anti-Fascist

“Giroshin Sha” – An anarchist-illegalist cell, formed in Japan in the early 20th century

April 29th, 2014

Photo from the trial of

Photo from the trial of “Giroshin Sha” cell

“Giroshin Sha” (Guillotine Society) was an anarchist – illegalist cell, formed in Japan in 1922. This cell expropriated banks, in order to finance its activities.

“Giroshin Sha” attempted to execute the general Masataro Fukuda twice, who was in the group which was responsible for the assassination of the most prominent anarchist writer of his time in Japan, Osugi Sakae.

At the first attempt, one of Osugi’s former comrades, Kyutaro Wada, shot Fukuda but he only managed to injure him and at the second attempt, a bomb was placed at his house by Genjirop Muraki and Futura, but unfortunately he was not there.

In 1924, the member of “Giroshin Sha” Tetsu Nakahama (among others) attacked the chairman of Kanedo Co. company and was arrested.

In 1925, Nakahama, along with his comrade and also member of “Giroshin Sha” Daijiro Futura, were executed for “anti – governmental actions”, including a bank robbery in 1923 and planning the execution of Prince Hirohito. Kyutaro Wada was sentenced to life imprisonment and he committed suicide in his cell.

The article’s research was conducted by the imprisoned members of C.C.F.
