Anti-Fascist Network: Coming up in March… (UK)

February 28th, 2015

The Anti Fascist Network is all about getting out of our armchairs and on to the streets, so here’s a run through of what’s coming up. How will anyone know you oppose fascism if you don’t get out there and say so!

First up in March is an EDL national demo in Manchester on Saturday the 7th. The local UAF are organising a counter demo. It’s Piccadilly Gardens at midday. The EDL say their demo is because of ‘Muslim grooming gangs’ but a recent post from Malatesta demonstrates how the far-right has more than its fair share of sex offenders as well. Unfortunately, paedophiles and rapists turn up in all walks of life. It is not about ethnicity. Read the rest of this entry »

Mikalai Dziadok sentenced to 1 more year in prison (Belarus)

February 27th, 2015

On February 26 the criminal case of the political prisoner Mikalai Dzyadok was tried in Mahilyou prison. He was charged with violation of the rules of serving the sentence under Article 411 of the Criminal Code of Belarus.

Dzydok was charged with 16 violations of prison rules, such as wearing sportswear suit instead of prison uniform, sleeping after “Wakey” signal, not sleeping after lockdown, talking to prisoners from other cells.

The prosecutor asked the court to punish Mikalai Dzyadok by 1 year in a maximum security penal colony. It is a maximum term under this article. The defence noted that such cases are extremely rare and can never be started because of such minor violations. The lawyer asked the court to justify Mikalai. As a result, Judge Ihar Shvedau sentenced the political prisoner to one more year in prison. Besides, he is to serve four days out of his four-and-a-half-year term. Read the rest of this entry »

Open letter by Spyros Mandylas concerning the trial about the conflict within the movement in 2012 in Thessaloniki (Greece)

February 27th, 2015

From InterArma:

Today, Thursday 26th of February, the trial concerning the inner-movement conflicts of 2012 in Thessaloniki was continued after a break.

From my side, it became clear from the first moment, the fact that the trial cannot take place at this time because my lawyer Fragiskos Ragousis faces some impediment and I am already on the trial concerning “Phoenix” project which takes place in Athens.

Today, the court decided to begin the process although I was not represented by a lawyer. It should be noted that in this trial I am accused of felonies concerning explosions, possession and use of explosives etc. Read the rest of this entry »

Military Vans Torched, Cadets Ordered Not To Wear Uniforms On Campus (USA)

February 27th, 2015

The Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) is a college-based program for training commissioned officers of the United States Armed Forces. From media scum:

Two ROTC passenger vans parked on the Kent State campus were found burning early Monday morning [23 Feb 2015] and investigators believe the fires were intentionally set. The 15-passenger 2014 Dodge vans were parked in the Terrace Hall lot when firefighters were called about 2:30 a.m., said Emily Vincent, a Kent State spokeswoman. No one was injured. The State Fire Marshal’s Office and the Blue Ribbon Arson Committee are offering a reward of up to $5,000 for the identification of those responsible for causing the fire.

One van was heavily damaged; the other sustained less damage, officials said. A cause of the fires has yet to be determined, but arson is suspected, Vincent said. The State Fire Marshal’s Office and Kent City firefighters are investigating. ROTC Lt. Col. Matthew Fox said there have been no other recent acts against the organization or cadets. As a precaution, Fox has ordered cadets to wear civilian clothing while on campus.

Antifascist march in Sofia (Bulgaria)

February 27th, 2015

Neither in Sofia nor anywhere…

Last Saturday, February 14, 2015, around 150-200 antifascists demonstrated in Sofia against the annual march in honour of general Hristo Lukov, Nazi collaborator and leading figure of the Bulgarian national-socialism, executed by partisans in 1943.

Fascists from all over Bulgaria take part in the march in memory of Lukov, and previously up to 1,000 people were participating in it. This year, the fascist gathering was attended by 300 invertebrates.

The antifascist demonstration was also directed against the rise of racism observed in Bulgaria in recent years, after the appearance of refugees (from Syria) for the first time in the country. Furthermore, demonstrators chanted slogans against homophobia (in 2008, fascist hooligans killed 25-year-old student Mihail Stoyanov at a park in Sofia because he “looked gay”).

In a display of internationalist antifascist solidarity, also 15-20 comrades from Greece, Romania and the Republic of Macedonia participated in the antifascist march.

Berlin: Security company vehicles torched by anarchists (Germany)

February 27th, 2015

For a hellfire on earth…

And once again autonomous cells struck. This night we carried out a sabotage in Berlin, in complicity with all the fighters of our worldwide conspiracy. With fire we transformed two cars belonging to the company ‘Sicherheit Nord’ completely worthless for the watchdogs of the system. With this attack we promise our attention and support to those persecuted and incarcerated by the pigs.

Strength to Tamara Sol Farías Vergara, Mónica Andrea Caballero and Francisco Javier Solar Domínguez.

Strength to the prisoners of the Revolutionary Struggle (Epanastatikos Agonas), who are locked up in maximum security prisons.

The dogs that are hunting us down will be hunted by us at any time. Furthermore, we enjoyed the attempted prison escape by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, as well as the assassination of the chief executioner of Domokos type C prison.

We encourage all those who are able, to make attacks against the prison system on a daily basis.

Also the prison laborers who bake donuts for the Olympics propaganda, and thus further dig their own grave, could instead poison a few sports fans of the Berlin Senate with arsenic.

… for a society without coercion and prisons!
For Anarchy!

Freedom for all prisoners!

Translation notes:
Recently, as part of the city authorities’ push to represent Germany in the bid for the 2024 Olympics, the Berlin Justice Senator Thomas Heilmann tried to give away donuts (Pfannkuchen) decorated with the Olympic rings that were baked by inmates from Tegel prison.

Final message on video reads: “See each other on the 18th of March in Frankfurt – make ECB’s opening into a disaster.”

[Noticias de la Guerra Social]

Durante la mañana del 16 de Diciembre del 2014, un aparente artefacto
explosivo es encontrado entre el Subcentro y la Escuela Militar,
generando un amplio dispositivo policial y mediático.

Hace un par de meses atrás, más precisamente en Septiembre, un artefacto
explosivo detona en un basurero del Subcentro en pleno horario de
almuerzo hiriendo a varios transeúntes. La acción es reivindicada por
“Conspiración de Células del Fuego –Chi” quienes señalan haber dado un
tiempo de 10 minutos para evacuar el sector, alerta que no fue creída
por la policía e insuficiente para despejar dicha área altamente
transitada. Read the rest of this entry »

Solidarity with anarchist Dante Cano, arrested at Oakland demo against police violence and murders (USA)

February 25th, 2015

Spread around. Lumpen-proletarian rebel arrested recently in Oakland, CA USA at anti-police demonstration. Squatter and anarchist. Facing serious charges. Help get word out.

Dante Cano is currently being held in Santa Rita jail for participation in a demonstration against police brutality and murder in the Bay Area and across the United States. At the time of his arrest, police in near-by Emervyville had just killed Yuvette Henderson in early February. At the same time, police also had just shot people in San Jose, East Oakland, and also the courts had exonerated the police that shot and killed Alex Nieto in San Francisco. This happened against a back-drop of ongoing police murder and violence across the US as well as a deep and furious revolt in the Bay Area against this murder and repression.

Audio: Activist Dilar Dirik profiles the Kurdish struggle for self rule – against ISIS, European political cynicism, and the Western left’s expectations (Kurdistan)

February 24th, 2015

Here we share an audio link sent to us with an interview with Dilar Dirik. Even though we do not share many of the liberal-democratic language and perspectives of the interviewer and interviewee, we are happy to put aside dogma for a moment because freedom and understanding means destroying the cages we build for ourselves as much as those that are built for us, as we seek out new worlds and affinities.

Rojava vs The World: The radical fight for survival, independence & freedom

Activist Dilar Dirik profiles the Kurdish struggle for self rule – against ISIS, European political cynicism, and the Western left’s expectations.

Dilar traveled to Rojava with an international academic delegation, and she has written about the politics of Kurdistan in “The ‘other’ Kurds fighting the Islamic State” for Al-Jazeera and “Be on the right side of history – with the brave people of Kobanê” for the Kurdistan Tribune.

Dilar Dirik is Kurdish activist and refugee, and a PhD student at the University of Cambridge. She blogs at Jin, jiyan, azadî.

Incendiary barrage in solidarity with fugitive comrade Ageliki and the imprisoned members of CCF by ‘Constant Unholy Synod / Iconoclastic Cell Clément Duval / FAI-IRF’ (Greece)

February 24th, 2015



Inter Arma received and translated:


ONE STEP BEFORE…

In the modern age where everything moves continuously with terrible speed, not even the most shrewd ones manage to realize adequately and securely enough to estimate in time the consequences of the stated decisions of others upon their lives!

In modern Fortress Europe, where immigrants/refugees from the “third world” countries are shot in cold blood at the borders, flounder on the Aegean sea or become “sacks of potatoes” and “punching bags” inside police departments and detention centers. There where the global conflict of interests, between the two most powerful –but interdependent- poles of power and also the ambivalent smaller circles of influence that interlock with each other, goes on with unabated intensity, muffled but also unconcealed (as in Ukraine); Greece and other neighboring countries (inside and outside the EU) remain fully heterogeneous and controlled – colonial type-provinces of the capitalist center, where even breathing is taxed!

In modern civilization, with the toxic wastes that extensively pollute the earth and the aquifer, air pollution that contributes highly to the reduction of life expectancy, the techno-industrial noises of every kind leading to paranoia and the luminous advertising signs that cover the starlight, even the car’s petrol tank light exists to remind us of the misery we experience!

In the modern city and everywhere else where there are the catastrophic tentacles of industry and the lies of social hierarchy (eg. always talking about the artificial environment, the officials and lackeys of institutional authority etc.), there is nothing more beautiful than the screwed up faces and the broken bones, the debris and embers of the means and infrastructure of the Enemy!

Liberation immediate de Georges Ibrahim Abdallah – Textes de Dimitris Koufontinas et Nikos Maziotis (France, Greece)

February 24th, 2015

- G.I. Abdallah : Nouveau refus de libération

LIBÉRATION IMMÉDIATE DE GEORGES IBRAHIM ABDALLAH
RASSEMBLEMENT DE PROTESTATION
MERCREDI 25 FÉVRIER 2015
DEVANT L’AMBASSADE FRANÇAISE D’ ATHENES

(Coin des rues Vas. Sofias et Akadimias)

Le communiste révolutionnaire Georges Ibrahim Abdallah est dans son 31er année d’enfermement dans les prisons françaises. Toutes les demandes de libération conditionnelle qu’il a faites jusqu’ici ont été rejetées par les tribunaux sous des prétextes divers, après des interventions continues du State Department américain et du lobby sioniste aux gouvernements français. L’Etat français, en rôle de protectorat, met en œuvre un système d’exclusion contre un militant qui est libérable depuis 1999.

Le 5 Novembre 2014, le tribunal d’ application des peines de Paris a rejeté la neuvième demande de libération que Georges Ibrahim Abdallah avait soumis en Mars 2014.

La demande d’Abdallah était considérée «irrecevable» sous le prétexte que précédemment il n’a pas fait l’objet d’un arrêté d’expulsion. Cette parodie de justice, confirme encore une fois le régime d’exception applicable à Georges Abdallah pour plus de 31 ans. Il est confirmé que le maintien en détention de Georges Abdallah est une décision politique du gouvernement français. Read the rest of this entry »

Communiqué from the anarchist comrades locked up in the AS2 unit of the prison of Ferrara (Italy)

February 23rd, 2015

From anarchicipistoiesi.noblogs.org, crocenera.org, informa-azione.info
Translated by act for freedom now

After the news that circulated between 13th and 17th February, here is a communiqué signed by the prisoners of the AS2 unit of the prison of Ferrara. The prisoners decided not to be silent in the face of yet more abuse from the guards and to protest against the solitary confinement inflicted on a comrade in the unit. We believe it is necessary not to allow their words to remain dead letter; on the contrary it is important that they circulate as much as possible, among comrades outside as well as inside prison.

To the comrades outside, 14th February 2015

A few words to let you know what’s going on in the AS2 unit of the prison of Ferrara.
No will/intention to feed the ferocious appetite of victimization’s cultists or anti-prison experts in view of the latest prisoners’ lament.

On Friday Alfredo [Cospito] was subjected to the judgement of the prison little tribunal, following a report issued a few nights earlier for having insulted a guard who had turned to one of us, Graziano [Mazzarelli], in a disrespectful and provocative fashion. Graziano was guilty of asking the disgusting man to turn the volume down. For the record, all this happened after midnight. Besides causing him lose the 45 days of earlier release, the ‘sentence’ implied that Alfredo was immediately put in solitary confinement, or rather, as they say, excluded from all social activities (exercise yard, sociality, gym and football pitch). As soon as news spread in the unit, after a short discussion, we started making noise and banging at the bars. Read the rest of this entry »

Sydney: Protect The Block! Redfern Aboriginal Tent Embassy Facing Eviction – 23 Feb! (Au$tralia)

February 22nd, 2015

The Redfern Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Sydney is facing eviction on Monday 23rd February. The Embassy are calling for people to come down and help them resist eviction.

The embassy plans to apply for an injunction Monday against the eviction order, which was issued by the Aboriginal Housing Corporation (AHC) on Friday afternoon. The order demands the total dismantling of Redfern Aboriginal Tent Embassy, which has been a 24 hour protest camp since May 2014. In an area known as the ‘Block’, it sits wedged between Redfern Station and Eveleigh Street. It’s a sparse green oval resting on a grey concrete slope. On first glance it’s as unassuming and ordinary as its namesake would suggest. But the tents have only catalysed the political discontent and community activism that has boiled below the suburb’s surface for years.

The site has grown over the months to include vegetable patches and a seed bank, a sacred fire pit, kitchen and a collection of tents. The embassy was established to protest a controversial redevelopment plan for the Block – a chunk of Sydney’s Redfern suburb where Indigenous Australians have been promised affordable housing since the 1970s. When the AHC first began to be handed parts of what would later become the Block in the 1970s, it was widely viewed as a major victory in the battle for Indigenous land rights. The entire area was earmarked for affordable housing for Indigenous Australians. Read the rest of this entry »

War against ISIS/Daesh: Injured Dutch YPG fighter treated in Germany – “My heart is in Kobanê” (Kurdistan)

February 22nd, 2015

Friday, February 20, 2015 at 2:30 PM
Aachen – Anf/ ali güler

YPG fighter Richard Jansen from Holland who has been brought back to Europe for treatment for an injury he sustained in clashes in Sinjar said that: “I am happy to be a part of the honorable struggle waged by the Kurds. I was injured very early and I am sorry that my fight remained unfinished.”

Richard Jansen from the town of Schiadam in Amsterdam joined the ranks of the YPG (People’s Defense Units) some four and a half months ago in support of the Kurdish struggle against ISIS gangs.

Jansen who took the name of Serdar Botan was wounded on the head after a mortar shell fired by ISIS fell on a YPG emplacement in Sinjar one and a half month ago. He has been taken to the German city of Dusseldorf for treatment in a plane that took off from South Kurdistan earlier today. Read the rest of this entry »
