Sabotagemedia corrects a mistake in the counter-info work concerning Amélie Trudeau Pelletier (Canada)

Friday, March 28th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

Greetings comrades,

With this message we would like to inform that the name of Amélie is not Pillierst, this is an error being reproduced in various communiqués and contra-info sites. Her name is Amélie Trudeau Pelletier. We normally do not modify errors in the original communiques (only in our translations) but seeing the extent it has taken, we are modifying all references to Pillierst in past communiques. To avoid more of this confusion, we strongly advise you to correct your references or “tags”.

warm embraces

-Sabotagemedia

The error that was reproduced by 325 site amongst others originated here:

‘Operation Ardire’ – Communiqué of Culmine (Italy)

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Via informa-azione, BPD

Dear comrades,

as many of you already know the anarchist blog Culmine was released from prison on September 7 because the period of pre-trail detention had expired.

However it cannot be said that we were freed because they have inflicted restrictions on us: we can’t travel abroad, are compelled to live in our towns and have to report to the police station twice a day. (more…)

Interview with Individualist anarchist prisoners Elisa Di Bernardo and Stefano Gabriele Fosco of the blog Culmine (Italy)

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

From Aversión -Publicación Anarquista-issue 8, May 2013.
Translated from Italian by act for freedom now/B.pd

1 – Aversión: In recent years, for reasons we won’t analyse here, which mainly concern the direction the system is taking, but which affect our ways of relating with one another, blogs and websites have been taking on the task that our publications used to fulfil in the past. In your opinion, how does this affect the struggle and its perception?

– Culmine: We are convinced that we are going through a new era in anarchism. Blogs and websites allow the quick spreading of communiqués, texts and writings all over the planet, and make possible the exchange of ideas and proposals between comrades who will probably never get the chance to meet in person. This is a proper revolution in the relations between anarchists. We are well aware of the limits of this new way of relating considering both the fact that the instrument we use is not neutral, but is run and controlled by the enemy, and the fact that the risks are high, as Culmine demonstrates, even if the latter didn’t choose to stay anonymous. The anarchist blog Culmine was locked up on June 12 2012 also due to its work of counter-information. (more…)

About the new anarchist translation/publishing project Erebus

Saturday, June 15th, 2013

The new anarchist translation/publishing project Erebus, is an initiative of individuals from the wider tension of New Anarchy, created for the dissemination of speech, theory and practice of radical anarchist tendencies and perceptions.
A translation project, because the translation of material from comrades from abroad, breaks through the national borders and consolidates the international dimension of the anarchist war. It creates communication channels between comrades from all around the world, thus creating an informal network of information and coordination. The different languages ​​spoken by anarchist militants, should stop being an obstacle to the internationalisation of anarchist practice. This problem has to be addressed by the translation groups.

A publishing project, because any kind of action is preceded by theory, analysis and design. Because for us, the anarchists are not just soldiers who carry out orders, but conscious and thinking fighters. So before we arm our hands, let us arm our thinking.

Erebus, because we are sick of the false shining and light of this world, which stinks exploitation, obedience and resignation. Until the thick darkness of Black Anarchy swallows State, Capital, Civilisation and Society.

Read #1 here.

As the campaign period for the May 13 polls heated up on its last day on Saturday, cab driver told that, “I am not excited to vote. Every three years, I keep hearing the same promises from the same people, who keep breaking their promises every two years. Old and new politicians are alike. They want to remain in power forever. They don’t serve the people.” (more…)

RadioAzone: Wires of the telephone line and ADSL found cut (Italy)

Friday, May 10th, 2013

From RadioAzione:

As I was updating the blog of RadioAzione yesterday afternoon, I found that the internet connection was no longer there. Similarly the telephone line was not working. Nothing strange, apparently, as technology is subjected to this kind of faults (besides many others, or rather it is technology itself the main fault). I promptly called the responsible for the ADSL and telephone contract and they said that everything was all right to them. After repeating that it was not all right, they sent an engineer this morning. He checked the cabin in the street (which contains the telephone connections of all the inhabitants of the area) and found it out that a wire had been cut… not disconnected but cut… (more…)

Letter from Stefano Gabriele Fosco to Liberacion Total, Material Anarquista, Publicaciòn Refractario & Viva la Anarquia concerning an anti-judicial non-controversy (Italy)

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

I receive from Stefano the following letter. As I publish it, I want to reconfirm that critiques are always welcome and the ‘assholes’ will suffer the consequences they deserve [This is the premise of RadioAzione]:

-

To the dear comrades of Liberacion Total, Material Anarquista, Publicaciòn Refractario and Viva la Anarquia.

I give you all my anarchist and brotherly solidarity following the attack you got from a pseudo-nihilist asshole. There’s no censorship when one decides not to publish a text that attacks a prisoner while the investigation on him is still ongoing.

It must be known that in Italy there is no anti-judicial controversy. There are only assholes playing the same game as repression. (more…)

Solidarity to Athens IMC and 98FM (Greece)

Friday, April 26th, 2013

The Greek regime’s attempt to silence the Athens Indymedia website and 98FM is yet another repressive attack against self-organised infrastructure that challenges the existent order. It’s no secret that democracy will use dictatorial solutions when confronted by the subversive libertarian forces.

Solidarity and complicity with Athens IMC, 98FM and all those spaces and individuals in Greece which refuse to just shut up and accept the dominant discourse of mainstream bullshit and corporate hype.

Athens: Our voices can neither be repressed, nor silenced

Athens IMC and 98FM radio station are under repression by the State (Greece)

Wednesday, April 17th, 2013

EXTERNALITY AND OBJECTIVITY

10/04/2013 – The Deanery of NTUA (National Technical University of Athens) loses the trial against EETT’s (Hellenic Telecommunications and Post Commission) lawsuit related to past broadcasting of Radiozones at 98.1 from the NTUA premises, as well as about the broadcasts of “Radio Entassi” that occasionally emits from an adjoining terrace near the frequency of the mainstream radio station “SKAI”. It’s another procedural repression attempt that is added to precedent persecutions against Athens Indymedia and Radiozones of Subversive Expression.

11/04/2013 – The Dean takes the initiative to cut the power supply to “Radio Entassi”. At the same time, the internet connection for both Athens Indymedia and Radiozones of Subversive Expression is interrupted despite the fact that Radiozones broadcast at 93.8 a frequency totally separated to the case file. How the lost court case on radio emissions has developed into the silencing of all online counter information media based on the NTUA campus remains unknown. (more…)

Thessaloniki, Greece: Open letter to the Steki Nadir from 325

Monday, April 15th, 2013

Comrades,

We received your proposal for the counter-information gathering at your self-organised space on April 12-13, our apologies for not being able to respond sooner about it. Our inability to travel to Thessaloniki at this time meant that we prepared a written contribution to be distributed, whilst some of our circle made their further critical thoughts into another text. So here you’ll find two texts in English, Greek and Italian, which are posted openly in the hope of spreading discussion and action ever further.

Contribution to Nadir squat gathering from 325

Qualifications- response to Steki Nadir: A few thoughts on our use of technology by some luddites:

Recently we read the text of Alfredo Cospito to the CCF which we found ourselves very much in agreement with, particularly this section:

“Communication cannot but be carried out through action and this is why we do not have to assign it in some way to the professionals of speech. It is vital, of course, that the news and ideas go around the world. It is necessary however that we avoid in any way the transformation into bureaucracy of a procedure that must remain free from the elite of those who specialize in information.”

We return the warm greeting of Viva La Anarquia in Chile, who we regard as our anarchist friends and comrades; likewise, we send our incendiary hugs to all the groups and networks.

Always next to and part of the combative anarchist tendency!

Always in memory of Ryo!

325/ACN

Letter by Anarchist prisoner Alfredo Cospito to the C.C.F. (Italy, Greece)

Sunday, March 24th, 2013

Dear comrades, your letter gave me strength and joy. I have many things to say but I will limit myself to a few of those. The role of the comrades held hostage cannot be but that of analysis, the supplying of the comrades outside the walls with further tools. Beyond the obvious of insurrection and non-subjugation inside the prisons, the struggle continues, and you gave us an example with your resistance. Communication cannot but be carried out through action and this is why we do not have to assign it in some way to the professionals of speech. It is vital, of course, that the news and ideas go around the world. It is necessary however that we avoid in any way the transformation into bureaucracy of a procedure that must remain free from the elite of those who specialize in information. The ability of planning must be the fruit of the action of comrades outside the wall and the analysis of the hostage comrades.
The public dialogue which will take place in Thessaloniki in the frames of counter-information is important, and I am sure that during your intervention you will mention my objection. (more…)

Dan and Olivier – “Nothing to declare: Why we refuse to participate in our own repression” (France)

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

from nonfides, translated by waronsociety:

Nothing to declare
Why we refuse to participate in our own repression

It has now been two years since the investigation into “public defamation of public officials” and “incitement to the commission of an attack against a person without effect” was opened in relation to the tract “Correspondants de nuit: des agents de proximité de la guerre aux pauvres” [Night correspondants*: Agents of the war on the poor], published in late 2010 on Indymedia and then reposted on many sites, such as Non Fides and Retour à Belleville, but mainly distributed widely in several districts of Northeast Paris.

During the course of this investigation, we have received several summons (simple letters and then certified letters, and calls from the police on our mobile phones) which we have chosen to ignore. Some of our relatives have also been summoned and questioned.

After our refusal to cooperate with the pigs’ work, they decided to proceed with two searches, first of Dan’s house on May 15, 2012, and later of Olivier’s house on January 22, 2013, during which they robbed us of computers, USB sticks and external hard drives. Until now, we had not been indicted, but today, judge Maïa Escrive has called us to a “first appearance for an indictment.” (more…)

Updates on the anarchist comrades imprisoned following operation ‘Ardire’ (Italy)

Friday, March 8th, 2013

This morning, March 6, anarchists Sergio Maria Stefani, Alessandro Settepani and Stefano Fosco were transferred from the AS2 unit of the prison of Alessandria to the prison of Ferrara. The transfer had been announced yesterday by public prosecutor Maria Grazia Pradella in the context of the Milan proceeding of so called operation ‘Ardire’, and was implemented under the pretext that the comrades were in contact with the investigated comrades of the Adinolfi case (since October 2012 all the comrades had been locked in the same unit and had been sharing the exercise yard).
