From Anarchist Solidarity:
Australian Anti-fascist prisoner Jock Palfreeman, serving 20 years on Sofia/Bulgaria for defending two Roma boys from racist mob is on hungerstrike from 13th January 2013 because the Director of the Central Sofia Prison has ordered another punishment measures, most probably because of Jock´s activist work as chairman of the Bulgarian Prisoner´s Association.
Due to this punishment Jock is now not allowed to finish his studies which is very important for him.
Jock’s health is rapidly worsening as he continues his hunger strike and he is not even allowed to see a doctor as yet another repressive measure by the prison authorities.
He asks for solidarity from all of you by sending a petition to the Bulgarian Ministry of Justice :

On February 1st, 2013 at around 20.30pm immigrant street vendors in the neighbourhood of Thissio were chased off by the Athens municipal police who trapped one of the immigrants in a corner just above the rails of the Thissio metro station. When the cops attempted to steal the worker’s merchandise by shoving him, Babakar Ndiaye (38 years old from Senegal) fell onto the subway tracks from a height of 7 meters, where he died instantly.

Update : Contrary to what the article states, and popular presumption, the family were in fact deported on the 8am flight. The son was beaten up twice on the flight to try to subdue his defiance. The daughter, Shroukie, is left in the UK separated from her family. Solidarity with the Saleh family and all migrants who fight for their dignity and freedom. No Borders – No Nations – Stop Deportations!
The Saleh family, Mr S and her two children, arrived in the UK in November 2007 after suffering 15 years of violence in Egypt. The whole family is now under serious threat of honour-based violence and possibly even death. They had a court hearing on 13th November to receive a fair hearing of their case, but this was completely ignored by UKBA.
The first attempt to deport the family was on the morning Thursday 18th October, which resulted in the family’s home being raided by UKBA officers in Cardiff and two activists being arrested for ‘obstructing UKBA officers’, one of which additionally charged with ‘obstruct pc’. While a call-out was made for supporters to attend Cardiff Bay police station, where the family were taken in order to be transfered to a coach for a flight later that day in London, others made their way to the motorway sliproad. What followed was an attempt to run down activists blockading the road. (more…)

From Anti-Fascist Network:
The EDL are marching in Bristol on the 14th of July. The counter-mobilisation is in full swing, so get involved. Now is the time for action.
Come to Templemeads area [main train station] and line the route at 10am on the 14th to give them the welcome they deserve. Stay alert. Stay mobile. Bring your mates. There are many, many ways to show your opposition to the EDL: don’t let them march, don’t give ‘em a lift in your taxi, put posters up in shops, don’t serve them drinks, raise awareness about their farcical attempts to disguise their homophobia, chat to work colleagues, decorate the city…. do whatever you feel comfortable with but now is the time to get a crew together and take action against racism in our city. We want to meet them at the station to stop them marching for any distance. We will resist them wherever they turn and we will be watching them. Let’s defend ourselves against the EDL! Zero tolerance of fascism on our streets.

It has been brought to the attention of 325 by Swedish insurrectionaries & ABC Stockholm, that the animal rights prisoner Viktor Padellaro is a fascist and not in anyway supported by the anarchist movement there.
Viktor Padellaro is convicted for arson, ‘vandalism’ and sending threatening letters in the context of animal rights campaigns.
Padellaro is registered on the Neo-Nazi website and forum “Nordisk.nu” under the moniker “LaDecima” and is an active editor of the likewise Neo-Nazi wiki Metapedia. He also has a blog (http://le-clairon.blogspot.com/) under the moniker of Le Clarion, on which he terms himself a “traditionalist”. If you read this blog, you’ll notice that he often voices loud support for Italian fascists and blackshirts, among other similar things.
Viktor Padellaro is no comrade of ours, and deserves no support from the anarchist movement. He is a fascist, and should be crushed as such.

9/11 In Chile: The day before, activities and actions in the north, and the events in Santiago
From Arde Moyano Records. Revolutionary greetings to all comrades in Chile.
Text from: Hommodolars
Wednesday September 14th 2011
This article is necessary to understand this: “Algunas reflexiones sobre el 11 de Septiembre”…These articles are a contribution towards a “proletarian understanding of the germinal Chilean revolutionary process developed in the years ’60 – ’70 and bloodily cut short by the military coup of September 11th 1973; These are, mainly, the role of the left wing of the capitol in the UP [Popular Unity, the leftist party that backed Salvador Allende] and later fighting against the dictatorship, developing the self-activity of the proletariat, criticizing the democracy and necessity of a radical rupture with the reproduction of capitalism in every sphere, connected to the present struggles whose efforts have fought from below against thugs of the state and military regime (of whom the governing clique of today is a direct successor), suffering in many cases torture, imprisonment, assassination and disappearance”.
This is the “military communiqué” which appeared in a new commemoration, where the previous article helped to understand the process of class war which resulted in the current spectacular capitalism. And perhaps it could be helpful to give class content to expressions of the anger of the streets, understanding them in the totality that is capitalism.
September 11th in $hile
From: Viva La Anarquía
Heavy clashes broke out at the end of the demonstration called for at the central cemetery by human rights organizations, on the 38th commemoration of the last coup.
Over 300 encapuchadxs attacked several media, police and special forces snipers and pacos de rojo [red police] in the vicinity of the general cemetery, several mass media groups were targeted as during the previous year, sustaining heavy losses due to the destruction of their equipment.
More than 10 police were wounded as well as a mounted police horse. A youth was arrested during clashes in possession of 4 molotov cocktails, perhaps another frame-up by the police? In all, more than 27 were arrested.
More than 10,000 people attended the demonstration.
More than 450 moments of conflict were reported during the night in Santiago alone: at the end of another September 11th, more the 280,000 people were still effected by the power outages, buses were burned, supermarkets looted and set aflame, churches attacked and nearly burnt. 280 were arrested on the “national” level and 40 cops were wounded (3 seriously). These are just some of the events of day. The night began with fires across Santiago, explosions and barricades in Villa Francia around 9 pm, events that couldn’t be ignored by the special operation of the “authorities” and in other places during the night there were actions such as the attempted arson of a church and two looted supermarkets.
In the hills of San Bernardo there were bursts of gunfire, the same as the night before. In Villa Francia alone the police arrested 14 people. Outside the Liceo Dario Salas there were long clashes and in one instance a cop threw tear gas into an apartment. A few short and long distance buses were attacked with stones. Some of the communities in the Metropolitan Region where the 450 conflicts took place were: Maipú (Ciudad Satélite and Camino Rinconada), Recoleta, Huechuraba, Peñalolén, Pudahuel, Lo Espejo, Villa Francia, La Victoria, Gran Avenida, Los Morros, La Pincoya Conchalí, Florida, San Miguel, Macul, Avenida Central, San Ramon and San Bernardo. The unrest spread throughout the night in various parts of the $hilean territory.
Concepción: Barricades were built, in particular outside the Vega Monumental and the University of Concepción. There were power outages because of the “cadenazos” [a method of sabotaging power lines or transformers using chains], the press was attacked and a pharmacy was looted. The same situation was reported in Quilpué and Villa Alemana.
Valparaiso: Throughout Sunday night, barricades were reported in the area of Playa Ancha Rodelillo, specifically in the area of the University of Playa Ancha, which also had power outages due to cadenazos and several clashes with police and destruction in the city.
Arica: About 100 encapuchados started disturbances on Avenida 21 de Mayo, behind the University of Tarapaca, destroying traffic signals within about 5 blocks and intimidating vehicles passing by the place, with no police presence.
Valdivia: The commemoration of September 11 began here with a group of people who setting up a barricade in the town of Pablo Neruda, forcing police to clear the area. There were also power outages in the Corvin neighborhood.
In turn, Chilectra [Chilean Energy Company] reported that 135,000 customers in the Metropolitan Region partially lost electrical service. Some of the communities effected: Florida, Lo Espejo, Huechuraba, Maipú, Pedro Aguirre Cerda, Estación Central, Conchalí, Pudahuel, San Joaquin, San Miguel, Peñalolén, Lo Prado, San Ramon, Quilicura, Lampa, Independencia, Recoleta and Macul, Puente Alto, La Pintana and San Bernardo.
A 15-year-old was hit by a bullet in the chest and seriously injured in the neighborhood of El Bosque.
14 police injured, two seriously injured, one lost an eye (Quilacura) and the other was struck by more than 40 buckshot pellets in the arms and legs (San Bernardo).
Other information: The press claims the actions were quieter than in previous years, but apparently that’s all they know to say from a few years back. A police colonel reported that the riots were heavier than last year but just as intense as a few years ago.

Updated From Leeds ABC:
More than two years ago a strutting neo-Nazi was put on his arse. Without even the evidence to pursue a conviction for ‘common assault’ the British State launched an all-out offensive against militant antifascists, smashing doors in all over the country and making more than 20 arrests. In view of their lack of evidence against those arrested the CPS have chosen to pursue ‘conspiracy’ charges, a calculated gambit which has so far led to the imprisonment of 6 antifascists. The imprisoned comrades are guilty of nothing more than being antifascists, they have been fitted-up by the State and deserve our fullest possible support. (more…)
