International solidarity call for Devrimci Anarşist Faaliyet and the people of Kobanê (Kurdistan)

October 8th, 2014

For more than a year, thousands of volunteer fighters have been defending the autonomous revolution of Rojava (in Northern Syria) from the Islamic State (ISIS). Since this past July the North Syrian city of Kobanê, in the central canton of the Autonomous territory of Rojava, has been under siege by ISIS. ISIS fighters, armed with modern U.S. manufactured tanks, artillery, and small arms have been held at bay by volunteer fighters affiliated with the militias of the Kurdish People’s
Protection Units (YPG) armed with dated small arms and improvised weapons.

Tens of thousands of residents of Kobanê, mostly ethnic Kurds, have been forced to flea to neighboring Turkey, made refugees in a country that has historically persecuted and oppressed them.

Hundreds of Kurdish volunteers have crossed the border from Turkey to help aid in the defense of Kobanê. Turkish soldiers and police have attacked those volunteers and observers, including international media, with teargas and batons, in attempts to seal off the border and prevent aid from reaching those struggling to hold the city against ISIS.

In response, anarchists from the Turkish anarchist organization, Revolutionary Anarchist Action (Devrimci Anarşist Faaliyet, DAF) have joined the efforts to keep the border open, as well as support those struggling in Kobanê and those made refugees from the fighting. DAF members are taking part in guarding the border against ISIS movements in and out.

Funds are urgently needed to support their work, especially to aid in the efforts to provide material aid for those who have been displaced by the conflict and forced to flee to Turkey.

We, as international allies of Devrimci Anarşist Faaliyet, call on all who see affinity with those struggling and suffering in and around Kobanê to help assist in these efforts. No amount is too small or too large. All funds raised will be sent directly to the DAF to be used as needed in their efforts.

In Solidarity,

Denver Community Defense Committee

Athens: Anarchist prisoner Antonis Stamboulos goes on hunger and thirst strike (Greece)

October 7th, 2014

Also see: Gestures of solidarity with anarchist prisoner Antonis Stamboulos + Athens: Responsibility claim for incendiary attacks

Update 11/10/14: Antonis Stamboulos has stopped the hunger-thirst strike today for specific reasons explained in his latest text which is being translated.

Media Terror-Frenzy: Greek counter-terrorism police arrested Antonis Stamboulos on 1 October on charges of belonging to the Revolutionary Organisation – Revolutionary Struggle (Epanastatikos Agonas: EA). The police said that Stamboulos’s arrest was likely to prevent terrorist attacks, probably planned for 1-4 October, on several targets mentioned in a notebook allegedly in Stamboulos’s possession. The targets are alleged to include Vangelis Marinakis (a shipowner and the chairman of the Olympiakos football team), Theodoros Fessas (the president of the Federation of Hellenic Industries) and his Athens-based IT firm InfoQuest, the premises of the ruling New Democracy (Néa Dimokratía: ND) party, as well as Capital (a Greece-registered ship management company), and German engineering company Siemens.

Following his arrest on the 1st of October 2014, Antonis Stamboulos is currently being held under pretrial detention facing terrorism charges.

On October 6th, with another open letter, the comrade announced hunger and thirst strike denouncing the fact that he is now being held in the prisoner transfer centre of Athens. Furthermore, he protests the ongoing media construct fueled by antiterrorism cops against him.

The terror-frenzy scenarios leaked to the Press have no end, to make it easier for the antiterrorism unit to exterminate him. The captive comrade has been portrayed, among other things, as a leading member of the Revolutionary Struggle urban guerrilla group, as co-perpetrator of a bank robbery in Kleitoria (Achaea, Greece), as alleged successor of slain comrade Lambros Foundas, while the mouthpieces of Power have spread that the wanted anarchist Pola Roupa along with her child was supposedly seen on the steps to his apartment in Kallifrona street in Kypseli (which was deemed a “safehouse”). Meanwhile, wannabe informants and other ridiculous snitches have been all too willing to testify against him (e.g. a neighbor to his parents’ house claimed he had heard explosions from the basement of their home).

Political statement of anarchist comrade Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, in the trial for the Velvento, Kozani double bank robbery case (Greece)

October 7th, 2014

Background: Text by the 4 arrested anarchists concerning the double robbery in Velvento, Kozani + Anarchists sentenced for the double bank robbery in Velvento + Letter from Argyris Ntalios & Fivos Harisis

via actforfree:

31/7/14

Comrade A.D. Bourzoukos made his political statement today. Comrades D.Politis, G.Mihailidis, F.Harisis and A.Dalios were also present in the court room.

To begin, I would like to clarify the reason I am here today, by taking advantage of the procedure of statements. What will follow therefore, will in no way have an apologetic character, since my acts and choices are included in the wider anarchist struggle, the struggle for life and freedom. Consequently, they are acts that I support with every aspect of my being and I will continue to do so as long as this world remains as it is.

So, no, I am not apologizing, I have to nothing to say and analyse on a procedural level about my actions. I refuse the charges exactly because I refuse civil legality. I refuse to legitimize your role and your justice which is driven and instructed by those governing.

I therefore do not hope for your leniency, I will not bend before the threat of your laws and the many years of prison that await me, even in the worst of conditions that your state reserves for those who refuse to bow their head. These new prisons called “C- Type prisons”. I am here to highlight the characteristics of my choices and exacerbate the dispute between us. You, a part of the judicial authority, and me, a part of the anarchist struggle. And when I say “you”, I do not mean just you specifically, but all the people who hold positions of authority. It is a dispute that escapes the narrow frames of a inter-personal clash, it is a class and social war that spreads in the space-time continuum, it finds its roots in the initial forms of capitalism and the relations of exploitation and authority which for centuries now have defined the human race.

Update on the health situation of the 4 anarchist comrades on hunger strike (Mexico)

October 7th, 2014

“If you asked me what prison is, I would answer without a doubt that it is a wasteland of defined social-economic plans, where they throw all those individuals that bother them within society: this is why prison mainly houses mainly poor people” Xose Tarrio

“A movement that forgets its hostages is condemned to fail” Harold Tobson

As of October 1st, comrades Mario Gonzalez, Carlos Lopez ‘El Chivo’, Fernando Barcenas and Abraham Cortez, imprisoned in different prisons in Mexico City, are carrying out a hunger strike indefinitely.

Four days in to the hunger strike, we make a call for solidarity to the struggle that the comrades are carrying out, fighting the society of incarceration in its heart. Read the rest of this entry »

“Filaki” – Prison World: Film about the 2007 prison uprising – English subtitles + PDF (Greece)

October 7th, 2014

ABC Hurricane uploaded the Filaki – Prison World DVD about 2007 prison riots uprising in Greece.

PDF: Prison World – Filaki zine

Documentary from Greece about the prison society, its role in social control and the ongoing rebellion against it…

The film focuses on the prison uprisings against the political repression and social war against the comrades in Greece as well as the hunger strikes against the Type-F prisons in Turkey which soon spread to engulf many of the prisons in Greece. These prisons are similar to the Type-C prisons in Greece, the FIES in Spain, the CSC in the UK and other punitive isolation torture regimes around the world.

During the afternoon R.Z. escapes again, for the last time. A detainee shouts to him, ‘How did you do it?’. R.Z answers: ‘From there at the top… you can’t find a way to escape from those walls, because there are other walls beyond… another prison. You must escape from the roof, and head towards the sun. They will never be able to build a wall between the sun and the earth’.

Our passion for freedom is stronger than all prisons!!!

War Against ISIS/Daesh: People’s Defense Units repel ISIS forces in Kubani (Kurdistan)

October 6th, 2014

325 receives and transmits the following:

Oct. 6th Communique from People’s Defense Units – Media Center

ISIS terrorist attacks aiming at the occupation of Kobani continue on the 21st day. Mercenary groups repeatedly shell the city on three sides and attempt to enter the town. Direct confrontations and heavy clashes are continuing at the eastern
and southern fronts, Megtel and Botan neighborhooods.

Mercenary groups attacked the hill Mishtenur on two sides and attempted to enter the town last night in southeast Kobani, but the advance of the mercenaries was stopped as a result of our force’s heavy repulse, where fighting continues in the mentioned areas, yet we cannot confirm the number of dead of the mercenaries.

At the western front our units repulsed terrorist attacks on three sides, managed to inflict big losses on the mercenaries and forced them to retreat, again we cannot confirm the number of dead of the attackers.

Mercenaries attempted to attack with a car bomb last night on the eastern front. Our forces were able to destroy the vehicle before reaching the defensive lines and killing two attackers.

In the morning hours mercenaries attacked Kanya Kurdan area from three sides, and clashes erupted between our units and the terrorists. According to what has been confirmed 8 mercenaries were killed as a result of these clashes which are ongoing in the area.

Meanwhile at the eastern front our units carried out an operation against terrorists, targeting their sites. Our troops managed to destroy a military vehicle of the ISIS fighters without confirming the number of dead in their ranks.

ISIS terrorist attacks that aim at the occupation of Kobani and the elimination of the Kurdish will and are continuing at the moment and has entered it’s twentieth days, the unparalleled resistance of our units will enable us to change the balance of the world.

Since yesterday morning hours the violent clashes have not stopped. Where the heaviest clashes took place at the southern and eastern front of the city, in direct confrontations, 74 ISIS mercenaries were killed according to what has been confirmed by our troops.

As a result of remarkable resistance by our units on all sides of the city, repelling the invaders attacks, 15 of our comrades are martyred in action after facing the mercenaries with all their strength.

Our troops also carried out an operation against ISIS terrorists yesterday near the villages of Misteriha and Qadisiye, southeast Jaz’ah region. A military vehicle was destroyed and 8 of the mercenaries were ambushed and 4 of them were killed.

In the southwestern of Serekaniye city near the village of Dahma, our units carried out an operation targeting the movements of the mercenary groups, resulting in 4 killed ISIS fighters.

Of our martyrs was valiant comrade Arin [Mirkan], who was able to perform a fedai action, blowing herself up and killing dozens of ISIS mercenaries to stop their advance. Such strong will and determination shown by comrade Arin will be the spirit of resistance in the hearts of all of our combatants of the People’s Defense Units and Women’s Defense Units. If needed all of our fighters will be comrade Arin and shall not allow the mercenaries to reach their wishes at whatever cost.

Attempted Molotov attacks against vehicles of techno-industrial company Bayer AG (Germany)

October 5th, 2014

Translated from linksunten.indymedia.org by anarchist comrade Marco Camenisch. Translated from Italian by act for freedom now.

In the night between 26th and 27th July 2014 we tossed molotov bottles at several ‘Bayer AG’ vehicles – and with this action we started off our Tendency of Eco Struggle.

Poisoning and exploiting

During the first world war ‘Friedr. Bayer & Co’ (which later became ‘Bayer AG’) produced explosives and chemicals for war purposes. Their troubles in getting supplies were not due to humanitarian scruples but to security risks and lack of labour force. As soon as the war turned into trench warfare gas begun to be strategically used as a weapon, and Bayer begun to supply the army with tens of thousands of tons of various types of gas.

Not content with their turnover, ‘Friedr. Bayer & Co’ also formed alliances with other chemical companies in a ‘community of interest’ following the example of the American Trusts of the time.

The economic crisis that followed the war didn’t last long, and in 1925 nine chemical companies led by ‘BASF’ formed ‘JG Farben’.

At the beginning (1926), ‘JG Farben’ didn’t embrace the aspirations of the national-socialist party, but then they realized that their production of synthetic petrol couldn’t function without funding. Back in 1932, a year before the electoral victory of NSDAP (German National-Socialist Workers’ Party), the company made contact with Hitler and obtained his support. In order to guarantee stability in their profits, ‘JG Farben’ thought it useful to contribute to the electoral expenses of the NSDAP with about 400,000 Reichsmark (German marks). Since then their cooperation with the Nazi regime flourished almost without frictions.

Almost the entire board of directors of the company became members of the NSDAP, while monopolization made ‘JG Farben’ the fourth most important company in the world.

During the Spanish Civil war, the company provided financial support to Franco’s troops, while in Guernica the Luftwaffe had the chance to test an incendiary bomb produced by ‘JG Farben’ on civilians. During the second world war ‘JG Farben’ was committed to the production of war weaponry and was one of the responsible for the murder and exploitation of prisoners in concentration camps.

As soon as ‘JG Farben’ discovered a suitable site for production near Auschwitz, they started to seek for a hard labour force. In February 1941 Carl Krauch, an important member of ‘BASF’/‘JG Farben’, wrote a letter to Hermann Goring asking him to convince Himmler to use prisoners in concentration camps as slave-workers in the plant of Buna. From the collaboration with ‘JG Farben’ Himmler expected the supply of materials necessary to expand the concentration camp in Auschwitz. In this regard he ordered Karl Wolff to forge a strict alliance with ‘JG Farben’. Read the rest of this entry »

Call For Decentralized Resistance To The G20 Summit In November (Australia)

October 5th, 2014

Anarchists in Australia issue a call out for decentralised attacks, disorder, riots and sabotage around the topic of the G20.

The G20 is meeting in Brisbane in November. This elite decision making body epitomises the undemocratic nature of state-sponsored global capitalism; delegates from the 20 wealthiest economic zones make self-serving proclamations which affect everyone, without open discussion or oversight. …

We are calling for people to form affinity groups in their home towns and
autonomously organise decentralised direct action against the G20 and the capitalist occupation of our lives.

See you on the streets!!

War against ISIS/Daesh: Turkish embassy cars burned in Berlin by Commando Berivan Sason (Germany)

October 5th, 2014

People of Kobane, hear us. In this bitter hour of the inhuman threat, we see you freedom lovers in the world and we call to you: take courage. The city of Kobane is surrounded by the ISIS-murderers. On three sides ISIS confronts the city. If they take the city. it will inevitably lead to a massacre of the remaining Kurdish people on site. They have no way to flee to the north, because there already waiting are the Turkish army …

Turkey will decide at the present day on the extension of the ‘anti-terrorist’ struggle. This will mainly affect Kurdish people in Syria, which they as well as the PKK (Kurdish Peoples Party) stand on the Turkish terror list. Turkey’s fear of the Kurdish people is greater than of the ISIS-fighters. For example, Turkey supports the ISIS-fighters to their best of their will, for example, at border crossings to Syria or arms shipments that were observed by Kurdish people, or the medical care of injured ISIS-fighters in Turkish territory. On the Turkish side of the border, the Turkish army is using force of arms against all those Kurdish people trying to come to Kobane to oppose the corruption. Clashes occur daily there between Turkish security forces and Kurdish people who come from all over Turkey to help the trapped fighters of YPG in Kobane.

Tonight we have attacked the Turkish State in the NATO hinterland to brand it as an inhuman actor in this conflict. Two vehicles of the Turkish State – representatives of the Embassy are burned … At the same time, we appeal to everyone, not to stand idly by, ignite the solidarity for our brothers and sisters.

We tremble with the combatants, but their determination is our courage. We will not abandon the ideals and freedom. Maximum global solidarity!

Long live freedom!

In Memory of Berivan Sason, fallen but never dead!

Commando Berivan Sason

NB: Ceylan Ozalp (Code Name: Berivan Sason) was an active fighter and leader with several comrades in the northern Syrian Kurdish city Kobanê in armed resistance against the ISIS/Daesh.

Kansas City: Letter from imprisoned anarchist comrade Eric G. King (USA)

October 5th, 2014

From supportericking.wordpress.com:

Eric G. King, a 28-year-old local anarchist, was arrested and charged with an attempted firebombing of a government official’s office in Kansas City, MO. Eric allegedly threw a hammer through a window of the building and then through two lit bottles inside, though both failed to ignite.

Eric was identified as a suspect by local police because he had previously come under suspicion for anti-government and anti-police graffit. Eric is allegedly involved with the the Kansas City Fight Back insurrectionist collective.

Eric is currently being held in the Corrections Corporation of America’s Leavenworth Detention Center.



From Behind Enemy Lines: Statement by Eric G. King

10/5/14

My name is Eric. I’ve been an anarchist since about the age of 17; of course developing and maturing my views as I have grown. I am very active in the LGBQT, Earth, Animal, Antifa and other communities. I have organized Food Not Bombs, rallies against the Klan, and many others in support of human rights, anti-capitalism, animal rights, etc! I am an insurrectionist now. I believe that revolution starts in our own minds and once you are personally ready, then everyone has something they can do.

I value and support the solidarity and comradery received from the community now when I need it most. There is a warm feeling you get from knowing that you committed your life to something larger than yourself and getting warm wishes, kindness, and positive words which can really help someone out of a dark day. I am getting indicted this week and hopefully will be outside sooner or later. Books, stamp money, envelope money and letters would be greatly appreciated if you’re able and if not keep up the struggle. With love and support, EK (A) (///)

‘In Defense of Kubani’ – Call for Actions of International Solidarity (Kurdistan)

October 5th, 2014

325 received this text from our comrades of Anarchist Network, an international network of Persian-speaking anarchists. Check this site. Death to Daesh/ISIS.

As you know, war and conflict on the Kanton boundaries of Kurdistan, West of Kubani, from September 2014 has started.

This conflict is between “Progressive Revolutionary Fighters Y.P.G.” and Daesh / ISIS criminal forces, and due to the latest news, war is raging strongly.

This situation is worrying us a lot. The main purpose of writing this report is to change observation of this tragic dangerous situation in which our “Dear Kurdish People” and “Our Comrades” are facing day and night, into a direct participation and into actions which could lead to an international support in helping defenseless Kurdish women, men and children.

We can work together to assist Kurds in Kubani which can show “the power of our will” and “our conscience” towards people in need.

This can be through any kind of actions, gathering together in different cities, countries, nationally and internationally.

To achieve this aim, we would like to ask all “Anarchist Groups and Organisations” around the world for an “International Day of Support and Solidarity with Kurdish People”.

Please, please, let’s put our differences aside and work together to rescue a “Nation Who Are So Defenseless, Fleeing Their Home” and running with empty hands and barefeet and hungry and thirsty in the desert and mountains to arrive somewhere safe, but thousands of them, among them many children, have already died of starvation on their way to nowhere.

The shocking story is this: Those innocents who can arrive in some countries like Turkey, not only will be not protected, but are being brutally attacked by the fascist military of the Turkish government. This is something inhuman.

How can we stay silent and do NOTHING??? We are human, aren’t we?
Kubani is our heart and our heart’s beat should not fall.

The fall of Kubani is the fall of us all, against religious fascist forces like Daesh / ISIS, etc.

Please let us know of any actions in support, it does not matter which action you choose, as long as it is a progressive one which can awaken the people of the world…
