Destroika: Opening of the European Central Bank! | Frankfurt Fall 2014 (Germany)

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Come to the Opening of the European Central Bank! | Frankfurt Fall 2014

A Call from the Destroika for a Fantastic Convergence of Resistance

From issue-less “days of action” to inconsequential general strikes, the recent struggles in Greece, Spain, Italy, France, and Portugal invariably seem to stumble over the limit of their own national frame of reference. The standpoint of the nation, long considered synonymous with political activity per se, be it that of the State or one or another revolutionary party, has revealed itself as being the very scale of our own collective powerlessness. It is this powerlessness, turned against itself, that fuels the fire of so many nationalist resentments. (more…)

Mobilisations outside and inside the prisons against the murder of Ilia Kareli and the new Type C prison plans (Greece)

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

 

Footage from these moments:

A big mobilization has started since last month in almost all by now Greek prisons. The mobilization is a reaction for the new law about the maximum security type C prisons. Meanwhile an inmate named Ilia Kareli killed a guard with a knife and the guards in different prisons along with the police tortured him and killed him. So the mobilization acts also in honour with Kareli’s murder and is continuing the struggle. We also send some photos from the A wing of Koridallos prisons (Athens) in an act of honour of Ilia Kareli’s death.

The slogans say “we never forget, we never forgive” “fire to the prisons bombs to the courthouses” “if not now when?” There is also a video of slogans that were shouted at our refusal as prisoners of the A wing and the female wing to get in the prison from the prison yard for 1 hour after the normal yard lock down.

Here are some banners from the women’s prison of Koridallos during the protest of around 1000 people outside the prison against the new maximum security type c prisons.

Also some slogans written during the protest at Domokos prisons saying “rage and consciousness” “against the Greek Guantanamo” “knives in the prison guards” and “viva la fai/irf” Also at the Domokos prison protest there was some clashes between anarchists and cops. (more…)

5E3 : Seattle solidarity demo at Mexican consulate for the arrested comrades accused of molotov attack (USA)

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

This afternoon, February 11th, there was a demonstration at the Mexican consulate in Seattle, in solidarity with Carlos Lopez and other prisoners of the Mexican state. A group of about 20 people chanted Carlos’ name as well as anti-border and anti-prison slogans, and a synopsis of the case and a statement by Carlos were read over a megaphone. There were two banners that said “Solidarity to all captured comrades” and “Solidaridad es mas fuerte que los carceles! Presxs a la calle!” We stood around and handed out leaflets to passers-by for about 15 minutes, then went inside the consulate and read Carlos’ statement again, and left and dispersed on our own accord.

Newport: Against the NATO summit at Celtic Manor Resort (Wales, UK)

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

[Also see this]

This year NATO will have their next summit at Celtic Manor Resort, in Newport, south Wales. In early September 2014, “world leaders” – all directly responsible for untold death, illegal torture flights, and wars fought purely to protect Western business interests and resource supply routes – will gather on the edge of this historic Welsh city.

Many people from Newport, Cardiff, Bristol and beyond, will oppose the summit and use a diversity of tactics against it. We, an anti-capitalist, anti-militarist network in South Wales, plan to facilitate mobilisations and provide
space for workshops, skill-shares and social events. We are organising without leaders as we do not agree with bosses or bombs.

NATO has often used the term ‘humanitarian interventions’ to disguise the fact that it actually fights for the strategic, economic and political benefit of the elite classes within NATO member countries. Militarism and capitalism are part of the same global power structure. A critique and confrontation of capitalism is therefore an indispensable aspect of our anti-militarist stance. (more…)

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

Sunday, 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. (more…)

Anti-Fascist Network statement on Saturday 7th September EDL demonstration (UK)

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

demo-london-7913

The Metropolitan Police arrested over 280 anti-fascist activists, local community members, and passersby in East London on 7 September, as up to 700 English Defence League supporters were allowed to march over Tower Bridge and rally at Aldgate without encountering any mass opposition.

A large community demonstration was restricted to Altab Ali Park, well out of sight of the EDL’s march route and rally point. A bloc of around 600 within the demonstration, coordinated by the Anti-Fascist Network (AFN), attempted to hold a march to get within sight of the EDL’s route and present a visible opposition, which was then blocked and kettled by police. Despite police attacks the front of the AFN bloc did manage to get within sight of the EDL march, meaning the only political opposition the racists saw on the day was a direct result of the AFN mobilisation.

Bike Rally for Russian political prisoners – Helsinki (Finland)

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

This video is filmed at Bike rally for Russian political prisoners arranged in Helsinki Finland on 7th September. Many of the by-passers cheered when the bike rally passed by. The demonstrators ringed their bells, chanted and played drums. The route started from Kolmen sepän patsas and ended in the Russian embassy in Tehtaankatu, where the demonstrators cycled around the embassy and afterwards listened few speeches of the situation of the political prisoners in Russia. Mainly the demonstration rally went well and with good ambience. Sadly when rally was ending (and when the video camera stopped recording) the police suddenly attacked and arrested six demonstrators.

Barcelona: Tonight, 21 June – 19:30h, Font de Canaletes – Demo for the Barcelona 5 (Catalunya)

Friday, June 21st, 2013

From tarcoteca, also see contrainfo:

June 21: All to the street for freedom to the Barcelona 5. On May 15 five anarchists were arrested in their homes in the province of Barcelona. Their crime? Having participated in demonstrations involving altercations and spreading their ideology through Facebook groups. Therefore, they are accused of belonging to a terrorist group, praising terrorism, and recruitment and indoctrination. As proof of their guilt in these crimes, police seized material found in their homes: anarchist flags, libertarian philosophy books, black clothes and rockets and firecrackers, so that we all keep to San Juan [popular party].

#J11: Carnival in the West End of London (UK)

Friday, April 26th, 2013

“11 June 2013. #J11.
One Common Struggle.
Carnival Against Capitalism.”

Their London?

London is right at the heart of global capitalism. And the West End of London, including elite areas like Piccadilly, Mayfair and Knightsbridge, is where power and greed are most concentrated. The West End is home to:

* Corporations. Many of the world’s most brutal and polluting companies, including oil and mining giants, arms dealers, and the businesses profiting from cuts and privatisation.
* Vulture funds. Global base of the “hedge fund” and “private equity” industries, laundering the world’s blood money to invest in war, food speculation and debt slavery.
* Tyrants. Government offices, embassies, cultural and commercial fronts of colonial powers and murderous regimes.
* Playground of the mega-rich. Middle Eastern dictators, Russian mafia oligarchs, and home-grown parasites all see London as a “safe” place to hide and spend their loot. (more…)
