Graffiti in solidarity with the Mi’kmaq warriors’ road blockade in New Brunswick against the fracking company SWN (Kanada)

December 5th, 2013

Last night (December 2nd), we painted graffiti in solidarity with the Mi’kmaq warriors’ road blockade in New Brunswick against the fracking company SWN. It reads “Solidarity with the Mi’kmaq blockades,” “Fuck RCMP, Fuck OPD,” “Fight back,” and “Solidarity with the Mi’kmaq Warriors.”

With this humble gesture we send them the strength of knowing that they are not alone and that their brave actions are inspiring us to show our feelings of revolt in more concrete terms. This is just the beginning for us, we intend to escalate our level of conflictuality.

We also put up a large piece that read “Strength + courage, fuck the state,” not only for Germaine Jr Breau and the rest of the brave Mi’kmaq warriors, but for all those who show courage in times of adversity. We would like to take this opportunity to send greetings of solidarity to: The five recently arrested in Barcelona including Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar who remain in custody, the accused comrades of the Nea Filadelfia bank robbery case in Greece and to the inspiring Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai recently sentenced for the shooting of a CEO of a nuclear power company, your words are more important and inspiring than you can imagine.

In furtherance of an escalated anarchist conflict in the States, solidarity to the Mi’kmaq warriors and all those who fight back.

-some anarchists in Olympia

Athens: Responsibility claim for attack on internet café (Greece)

December 5th, 2013

On Tuesday evening, November 26th, 2013 we raided the Palladium internet café, located on Solomou street in Exarchia. We vandalized its interior, smashing the screens and the storefront glass-windows, and we torched the server, taking appropriate measures to prevent accidents. Then we left all together in a coordinated manner and absolute safety, in order to avoid any unfortunate encounter with dogs of the DELTA motorcycle police team.

Several incidents have reached our ears in relation to this internet café, including the fact that it was one of the cops’ favorite spots in downtown Athens, something that even the owner himself admitted during the attack.

Every peaceful citizen who voluntarily dress themselves in police uniform, everyone who are looking forward to receiving a pat on the back from cops for offering their “services”, everyone whose misery and subservience have permeated every inch of their personality should keep in mind that nothing goes unanswered. We will do everything in our power to give snitches what they deserve: the realization of their worst nightmare, a response to their intentional submission. They have a name, an address, they run their shops, and we know them very well. Their logic is dangerous; they have worn-out ideals, and have consciously taken on the submissive role of an informant. If they think we will allow them to perform their task without bearing the consequences, then they are woefully mistaken. Let individuals like the owner of the Palladium internet café know that they will constantly be targeted by us, because we will keep showing our aversion at well-meaning informers and associates of all sorts of cops. We owe this to our imprisoned comrades, those who left us early and did not fulfill their insurrectionary vision, those who ran into “bad luck” due to the work of advocates of intentional submissiveness, as well as those who continue the fight for the disorder and deconstruction of social inaction.

We dedicate this attack to the 4 comrades arrested in Nea Filadelfeia (Argyris Ntalios, Fivos Harisis, Grigoris Sarafoudis, Yannis Naxakis)

Strength to the 6 anarchists currently on trial for the Velventos case (Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, Dimitris Politis, Nikos Romanos, Yannis Michailidis, Argyris Ntalios, Fivos Harisis), and to those who continue their struggle on the inside

Madrid: Words of anarchist Francisco Solar from the prison of Navalcarnero, 3.12.2013 (Spain)

December 5th, 2013

To leave no room for doubt…

As anarchists we are in constant confrontation with the State/Capital in all its manifestations; this is a no-brainer. But sometimes, especially when Power falls down on us in all its brutality, glances get confused making strides towards ambiguous and unclear positions. I believe it’s necessary to maintain consistency, and not give rise to victimizing and defeatist discourses or practices. Perhaps now we should take a step back, but always to make five steps forward on the enticing pathway of incertitude to total liberation.

A strong embrace to all anarchist prisoners, held in prison worldwide, especially to Juan Aliste, Marcelo Villarroel and José Miguel Sánchez, with whom I had the opportunity to share experiences on the inside (in Chile).

Uncertain of what will come, yet unhesitating against Power

For Anarchy…

Santiago: Phoenix Project #8 – Action with incendiary/explosive device against a Board of Elections office and in solidarity with Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar (Chile)

December 1st, 2013

Phoenix Project, Act 8: Action with incendiary/explosive device against a Board of Elections office and in solidarity with Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar. (Chile)

We are not spectators, but convinced enemies of all forms of domination.

Today, wielding the weapons of life and the ideas of rebellion, we wanted to give away a bit of anarchic momentum.

Today, we decided to attack the 98th Board of Elections office in La Reina commune [in Santiago] with an incendiary/explosive device, because we are convinced that the current state of affairs is sustained not only by those who administer domination, but also in the servile attitude of those who tacitly endorse it.

Durham, North Carolina: Reflections on march for Chuey Huerta (USA)

December 1st, 2013

via Anonymous:

The report below is only a snapshot of what occurred on November 22nd. Our experience did not occur in isolation as a set of incommunicable facts and feelings. It is also not a historical narrative which swallows everything it does not crush. We hold out hope for some other form of thinking somewhere between the two.

“The police kill us youth, us young people, because they are afraid of us. They are afraid of the things we think and the things we know.” – one of Chuy’s friends, at the beginning of the event.

On Tuesday, November 19th 2013, Jesus “Chuy” Huerta died of gunshot wounds to the chest and head in the back seat of a Durham police vehicle. While police reported that the 17 year old was in the back of the cop car because he had been arrested for trespassing, the presence of a gun – an impossibility according to normal search procedure – has yet to be explained. The circumstances surrounding Chuy’s death have been obscured. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Anarchy – Civil or Subversive?’ : A Collection of Texts Against Civil Anarchism

November 30th, 2013

PDF: Civil anarchism book

Bored of the type of anarchism that seems to exist only as a boring routine of endless meetings and crap benefit gigs full of self-important tossers?
Sick of middleclass mummys boys pretending to be proles?
Fed up of being told what the “class struggle” is and isn’t?

We are too and so we put together this booklet about it.

Yolanda’s aftermath and Autonomous Initiative (Philippines)

November 29th, 2013

Yolanda is one of the most destructive typhoons to have visited the Philippine archipelago. It pummeled the Visayas region, particularly Leyte and some parts of Cebu and Panay areas. Super typhoon Yolanda left the archipelago with thousands of dead people, commercial and residential structures destroyed, power knocked-out; agriculture and livelihoods are washed-out that caused billions of losses. Destruction is so extensive that it caused unimaginable effect to the survivors.

Government’s Response caused more devastation to the people

The Philippine archipelago is in the frontline of calamity brought by storms. It is a common knowledge impossible to miss especially by the government which is supposed to be the authority in terms of preparation and rehabilitation. The huge number of dead people scattered in Leyte is attributable to the incapacity of the government to install preparatory mechanism to lessen casualties, the Philippine government did not learn from our past experience of havoc due to storm surges.

‘Kegembiraan Yang Dipersenjatai’ – Alfredo M Bonanno (Armed Joy – Indonesian)

November 29th, 2013

KEGEMBIRAAN YANG DIPERSENJATAI – Alfredo M Bonanno

Introduksi

Buku ini ditulis pada tahun 1977 dalam suatu momentum perjuangan revolusioner yang terjadi di Italia, yang situasinya kini sangat jauh berbeda, sangat perlu untuk disimpan dalam ingatan kita. Pergerakan revolusioner termasuk di dalamnya gerakan anarkis, sepertinya mengalami fase perkembangan, dan segala hal mungkin dapat saja terjadi, meskipun secara umum meluas menjadi pemeberontakan bersenjata.

Namun yang penting adalah menghindari bahaya munculnya spesialisasi dan militerisasi, yang membatasi minoritas para militan yang berniat untuk memaksakan ribuan kamerad, dengan segala sumber daya yang dimilikinya berusaha menentang represi dan usaha negara—yang agak lemah dalam mengungkapkan kebenaran—kemudian menata kembali pola manajemen kapital.

Semua itu adalah situasi yang pernah terjadi di Italia, namun sesuatu yang serupa tengah berlangsung di Jerman, Paris, Britania Raya, dan di tempat-tempat lain.

Sepertinya merupakan hal yang esensial guna menghalangi berbagai aksi yang dilakukan setiap harinya oleh para kamerad terhadap orang-orang dan berbagai struktur kekuasaan, yang kemudian menggiringnya ke dalam logika terencana seperti yang diamini oleh partai bersenjata seperti Red Brigade1 di Italia.

Long-term political prisoner John Bowden’s Recent Parole Hearing (UK)

November 23rd, 2013

via a comrade of Brighton ABC:

On November 6th the Parole Board for England and Wales carried out it’s statutory obligation to review my continued detention after more than three decades in prison and many years beyond what the judiciary originally recommended I should serve in jail. Following an earlier parole hearing in May 2011 the board had recommended my transfer to an open prison in preparation for my release 12 months hence. Almost three years later I remain in a maximum-security prison because of what the prison system and a criminal justice system social worker claim is my politicised anti-authoritarian attitude and “rigid belief system” that is antipathetic to my being properly supervised outside a custodial setting. No one who gave evidence at the parole hearing, even representatives of the prison system, claimed that I represented any sort of threat or risk to the community, the usual reason or criterion for the continued detention of a life sentence prisoner beyond what the judiciary had originally recommended as the appropriate length of time they should serve in jail.

Cop station attacked in solidarity with arrested anti-fascists (Sweden)

November 21st, 2013

In the early morning of the 19th of November, the cops national special forces and the SÄPO (~ equivalent of MI5,FBI) organized a raid called Operation Eskil. The targets were a group of anti-fascists in different parts of the middle of Sweden. Some people were arrested, accused of attacking nazis and in several house raids the cops claimed to have found a lot of weapons and material for building incendiary devices.

Even though we do not share the socialist views with the anti-fascists, we do share a common enemy and the enemy of our enemy is a friend.

In response to the cops attack on our co-combatants, we decided to attack the cops. In the evening of the 19th we smashed the entrance windows of a cop station in Växjö, south of Sweden.

A modest action, non the less a promise of what will come when they attack our comrades.

325, Anarchist Black Cross & Others Mentioned In Stratfor Emails (USA)

November 16th, 2013

325 receives and transmits this message from anonymous anarchist hackers in the ongoing information war:

Hello comrades!

Due to the 10 year sentence handed down to anarchist hacker Jeremy Hammond in NYC yesterday Wikileaks decided to release the remaining Stratfor emails they had been sitting on for some time. Stratfor is a company that posed outwardly as a global intelligence information publisher but were in fact providing confidential intelligence services to many fucked up corporations, government and law enforcement agencies.

There are MANY emails – millions of them, but already we have found some emails of interest to the global anarchist movement, they are as follows… Read the rest of this entry »

Jeremy Hammond’s Sentencing Statement – 15/11/13 (USA)

November 16th, 2013

Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison, Anarchist Hacker Jeremy Hammond Uses Allocution to Give Consequential Statement Highlighting Global Criminal Exploits by FBI Handlers.

Good morning. Thank you for this opportunity. My name is Jeremy Hammond and I’m here to be sentenced for hacking activities carried out during my involvement with Anonymous. I have been locked up at MCC for the past 20 months and have had a lot of time to think about how I would explain my actions.

Before I begin, I want to take a moment to recognize the work of the people who have supported me. I want to thank all the lawyers and others who worked on my case: Elizabeth Fink, Susan Kellman, Sarah Kunstler, Emily Kunstler, Margaret Kunstler, and Grainne O’Neill. I also want to thank the National Lawyers Guild, the Jeremy Hammond Defense Committee and Support Network, Free Anons, the Anonymous Solidarity Network, Anarchist Black Cross, and all others who have helped me by writing a letter of support, sending me letters, attending my court dates, and spreading the word about my case.

I also want to shout out my brothers and sisters behind bars and those who are still out there fighting the power. Read the rest of this entry »

Barcelona: Anarchist comrades Monica and Francisco arrested for Zaragoza bomb attack – Chilean ‘Caso Bombas’ resurrected (Catalunya)

November 16th, 2013

Distributed by: The Women’s Coordinating Committee for a Free Wallmapu (Toronto)

Also read this article on multi-language anarchist website Contra-info.

On November 13th, our comrades Monica and Francisco were arrested by the repressive forces of the Spanish State, accused of the explosive bomb attack on the Pillar Basilica in Spain. A hurricane of grandiloquent statements have been unleashed unto this situation between representatives of both [Chilean and Spanish] governments; congratulations of resurrected prosecutors and recycled Interior Ministers as well. Monica and Francisco were arrested in August 2010 in the so-called Chilean Bombs Case. Both confronted the trial against them with dignity and rebellion; more than 9 months in medium and maximum pre-trial prison, rejected the prosecutor’s blackmail, carried out a 65 day hunger strike and confronted one of the longest trials [in Chilean history], and had all their charges dropped by the Court with their convictions in tact.

Text about the struggle against torture and the FIES isolation units (Spain)

November 14th, 2013

STRUGGLE AGAINST THE TORTURES IN THE SPANISH`S JAILS

In October 2011, prisoners of several prisons of the State of Spain organized and began the Campaign Against the Torture and Ill-treatment in Prison. The offer of action arose from inside after several months of previous debate and exchange of ideas between the own prisoners and the groups of support of the exterior about what tactics and forms of fight could be carried out. The common action agreed was a symbolic day of fasting the first of every month, which is accompanied with denunciations at the Congress of the Deputies for their political responsibility in the torture and death in the prisons, and denunciations at the Courts of Penitentiary Vigilance for his its complicity as the well to a group of official institutions of prevention of the torture for his permissiveness and complicity (Ombudsman, committee of Geneva and committee of Strasbourg).

Review of “Flee, man, flee. Daily of a FIES prisoner” by Xose Tarrio (Spain)

November 14th, 2013

The story, set in Spain during the 90s, speaks about a prisoner’s life under the FIES (Prisoners’ Files in Special Pursuit) regime. Xosé Tarrío takes the chief role in this testimonial story, reporting the humiliations and tortures towards prisoners. Through escapes, he develops his protest against the prison system, the same system that imprisons him by theft when he was 17 years old. He was sentenced to two years but, for his rebel attitude, there two years transform into almost twenty years.

The best of the story is its vision of a reality, its report of an inhuman but legal system.

The bad point, is that: this story isn’t fiction.

Xosé died in prison on January 2005, by the AIDS that he contracted in jail.

This is his story.

Public enemies – National Security Agency and their companies – (USA, Worldwide)

November 14th, 2013

325 receives and transmits this article containing hostile links. Use Tor to view them. For a revolutionary insurrectional project against information control and the prison world.

Here is one article about true public enemies, not enemies of the state but enemies of society. Companies and people and their products that are created to build totalitarianism in the time of global capitalism. Their aim is to control people and companies and politicians globally, everything with aim to make bigger profit for rich Americans. So, yes, on the top of the list should be billionaires (owners of Shell, Chevron and similar) but this article is more about their servants (political, military, security system) that hunt people and disturb our life.

Appeal from anarchist comrades concerning Typhoon Yolanda (Philippines)

November 14th, 2013

On November 8, 2013, typhoon Haiyan or Yolanda (local name) shot its landfall in the Philippines. Typhoon Yolanda is one of the strongest typhoons which struck Philippines on a record. It has sustained winds of 235 kph (147 mph) with gusts of 275 kph (170 mph) when it made landfall. By those measurements, Yolanda can be compared to a strong Category 4 hurricane in the U.S, nearly in the top category, a 5.

People dead, missing. Houses, every single building is wrecked. No food, water, medicine, a good place to stay. People are starting to loot, steal. Children are sick, hungry, cold. For 5 days, all that we have to see and hear are how Yolanda has damaged us. No amount of words to exactly describe what it has done. But we are never hopeless. We will stand again and WE NEED YOU.
