Action in Basel in solidarity with refugees in Berlin (Switzerland)

Saturday, October 11th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

Early Tuesday morning (7 Oct. 2014), a German federal police car was set on fire at the Badischer Bahnhof (train station) in Basel. The car was completely destroyed. This action was in solidarity with the struggling refugees in Berlin and everywhere!

There, as here in Switzerland, people are degraded to problems for which a solution should be found. The solutions of politicians and authorities, as well as the cops as their henchmen, always mean confinement to detention centers, repression and often deportation to peoples’ countries of origin, or third countries.

The struggle of migrants, which they have determined for themselves against the systematic oppression they face, encourages us and at the same time, shows us the need for us to contribute to the sabotage of this repression machinery.

This action is also our response to the upcoming European police operation ‘Mos Maiorum’ (13th-26th Oct. 2014), which will attempt to have 18,000 police, in cooperation with Frontex, control and arrest as many people without residence permits as possible.

Active solidarity with all struggling migrants in Berlin and everywhere!

Prison governor suspended after detainee starves to death (Germany)

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

A short update from comrade Thomas Meyer-Falk about the inhuman conditions in German prisons.

Thomas was locked up for 11 and a half years in 1996 for a politically motivated bank-robbery and has spent most of his sentence in isolation. He had his sentence extended and remains incarcerated today.

On 18th August 2014 Koala Rosmane died after two years in Bruchsal Prison, Germany. A few days later the prison director, Mr M, was suspended.

- The Details

In 2012 Koala Rosmane was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to ten years in jail. Maybe because he had trouble with a prison officer, and/or maybe because Rosmane came from Burkina Faso in Africa, he was sentenced to another year and kept in solitary confinement for the past two years. It has been said that racist officers insulted the inmate often. For the past few months he refused prison food, maybe because he feared that the prison administration wanted to poison him.

- The Death

The forensic doctor who carried out the post mortem examination said that the prisoner was extremely malnourished. Maybe he died of starvation.

- The Suspension

It was the first time ever in Germany that a prison warden was suspended after an inmates death. Mr M was known for his special “character”. A couple of years ago, when he sent his Christmas greetings to inmates, he used a quotation from a song by a band which has been involved in racist attacks in the past. Inmates hang themselves, cut their veins, make hunger strikes. No one was interested in them. But it seems that now Mr M has gone too far! (more…)

Cardiff: No Borders Noise Demo outside the UK Home Office Buildings (Wales, UK)

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014

On the 2nd of September, at 12pm around 50 people gathered outside the Cardiff Home Office Buildings for the noise demo planned as part of the Stop NATO Cymru week of action. In the past, there have been monthly noise demos by No Borders South Wales group, with many different points of focus, ID cards, destitution, dawn-raids and anti-deportation. The focus of this particular demo was how border controls relate to militarism and the NATO war machine. This was called because NATO are part of the samesystem that divides and isolates through borders. Borders are a mechanism for the divide and rule of working class people. Borders kill innocent people around the world as does militarism. (more…)

Initial collective response to public letter of JoNina & Lorenzo “Racism at the NA ABC Conference” (USA)

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

We are writing as the crew that organized the North American ABC Conference, in response to JoNina and Lorenzo’s public letter “Racism at the NA ABC Conference.” We are nine people spread across the country, from New York to Sacramento, in conjunction with Denver ABC, and as such have a range of views on their open letter. This response is not a full statement of all of those views, or even a consensus of what things we all agree on, but rather a response required to urgently address the letter and to clarify information within it. This statement is NOT to discredit, disqualify, disregard, or fault JoNina and Lorenzo for their experience(s). The information provided is correct to the best of our account, and is provided for the purpose of transparency.

We also note that our public response to this matter is made against our preference for dealing with conflicts internal to anarchist movements. We are troubled by JoNina and Lorenzo’s decision to publish their letter on the Internet (including Facebook) in addition to sending it out over our closed listserv. We find it inappropriate to publicly handle internal matters, where anyone and everyone is privy to internal conflict, that typically makes it difficult to move forward and lends itself more to internet flame wars than revolutionary efforts to deal with oppression within our movements.

Madrid: Fierce Resistance as Neo-Nazi group ‘MSR’ opens ‘white Spanish only’ occupied center (Spain)

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

via squat.net:

Series of big anti-nazi demos against fascist squatters… Anti-fascists seize ‘white Spanish only’ food stall and distribute to all.. Fascist squatters may have owners permission… Squatters movement disowns fascist squat… Police turn blind eye to nazi “okupas” in Tetuan barrio…. Fascist thugs from MSR squat injure local youths.. Media equates nazi’ Social Home’ with long existing popular and anti racist Squat center ‘La Enrededera’ to demand its eviction.

Thousands of neighbours have come out against the nazi squat.
They are not squatters: they are Nazis.

On 18 August, the neo-Nazi group Social Republican Movement (MSR) announced on social media their entry into an abandoned building in Madrid’s Tetuan barrio and their intention to turn it into a social center for ‘those in need’ provided they were white and of Spanish nationality.

Opening such center in the district with the largest migrant population of Madrid and the opposition it generated among neighbors attracted media attention, especially after the massive demonstration against held the same day as opening of the center, on August 30.

Since then, it has been common to see the press referred to the center as a “squatted building” and members of the neo-Nazi group as “squatters” in an error which is then repeated in social networks. The center is equated with the squatting movement, which has always had among its main objectives the recovery of abandoned homes to become social centers and buildings.

This assimilation was false, but the reality mattered little. (more…)

12-hour riot after detainee dies at Morton Hall Immigration Removal Centre (UK)

Tuesday, September 9th, 2014

From ABC Hurricane:

A brief spark of revolt was seen from those incarcerated in Morton Hall Immigration Removal Centre near Lincoln after a Bengali man, who had been in the prison only three days, died on September 5.

Disorder broke out at breakfast on September 6 and staff were forced to flee, withdrawing to a “place of safety”.

A ‘Tornado’ team, or ‘national tactical response group’, was called into the prison to quell the riot, which lasted all day.

Solidarity with prisoners in struggle everywhere!

-

NB: There have been many riots in UK immigration centres over the last 18 months, and the mainstream media are keeping the incidents from being widely known, whilst spreading intolerable racism against migrants and stirring up hateful nationalism. Business as usual…

Former ELF/Green Scare Prisoner “Exile” Now a Fascist (USA)

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

Info from longtime Green Scare prisoner supporters in consultation with anti-fascists in Olympia, WA.

It’s been an open secret for months that Nathan Block (better known as “Exile”), a former Green Scare prisoner who served a number of years in prison for several Earth Liberation Front actions, has become a fascist. This has been known not just through numerous personal accounts from Olympia, but from copious postings on his tumblr blog Loyalty Is Mightier Than Fire (Exile has confirmed to local anti-fascists that the blog is his).

Continued Assaults on Asylum Seekers in Sofia Central Prison (Bulgaria)

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

On the 6/7/14 at 8.30am the guard Peter Petrov performed the morning roll call, he entered cell 11 and started shouting in Bulgarian, a language no one present understood. As the roll call finished for that cell he then started to assault a mentally ill man from behind as he was not moving fast enough. The mentally ill man is about 45kgs, about 55 years old and a citizen of Comoros. He then retaliated and slapped the guard back after the guard Peter Petrov hit him and kicked him again, the guard came at the Comoros Islander again and the African took a chair to keep the guard away from him.

Three other guards came and only saw the Comoros islander with the chair and so they beat him too. Peter Petrov then ran out of the cell, locked all the cell doors and called for “assistance”. Forty guards came from two work shifts, from the Saturday evening shift and the incoming Sunday day shift, as now shifts are 12 hours. The forty guards summarily beat everyone in the cell – the man from Comoros, 4 Afghanis, 1 Pakistani, 1 Dutch man and an Algerian. They were not resisting in any way and most of the wounds inflicted by the guards are on their backs as they tried to cover their faces on the ground. All of these victims are incarcerated for illegal border crossing- they are all asylum seekers. (more…)

London: Anti-fascists organise against Neo-Nazi violence in Tottenham (UK)

Wednesday, June 25th, 2014



Check out: inthebellyofthebeast & anti-fascistnetwork:

On Saturday a group of Polish neo-Nazis from the group Zjednoczeni Emigranci (ZE – United Immigrants) attacked the small ‘Music Day’ festival in Markfield Park in Tottenham, North London assaulting a Jewish man and stabbing another Polish man. This pre-planned and unprovoked attack on a family music festival was carried out by a group of about 40 fascists and involved throwing glass bottles, stones and flares. Several other people were injured.

The individual who was stabbed purely through luck suffered only superficial injuries. One member of ZE has been arrested for religiously aggravated common assault in connection with the assault against a Jewish man.

After the end of the leftist ineffective & passive UAF rally, a group of around 100 led by the Polish anti-fascist group Dywizjon 161 marched up Tottenham High Road to Markfield Park and removed ZE graffiti and stickers throughout the area, replacing it with anti-fascist stickers and messages.

Night-time stalking of Bristol fascists – EDL Chris Pugh’s car vandalised and fascist hang-out Apple Tree pub smashed (UK)

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

Some local fascist haunts have been hunted down in our areas. This is to combat continuing fascist stirrings like racist assaults, intimidation and graffiti here in Bristol* and elsewhere. The far-right will be fought in the daytime like in Brighton last Sunday, or at night when we choose.

EDL Fascist Chris Pugh plays as DJ around Bristol pubs under the name of The Last Resort, and runs a retro shop under the same name on the Wells Road. His street stall in St.Nicholas market ceased trading after being publicly paintbombed on a Saturday by anti-fascists. His shop is a few minutes from his house in Knowle West (47 Salcombe Rd), the stomping ground of his youth. So, on the night of Tuesday 15th April, all four tyres were punctured on his Grey Jaguar car, and body work scratched. It’s the least we can do for him right now.

Two days later, at the Apple Tree pub in Philips street, off Bedminister parade, two downstairs windows and one upstairs were smashed at sunrise. The pub is a consecutive meeting place of EDL organisers, such as Mickey Bayliss, who organised the EDL demo in central Bristol last year as their South-West co-ordinator.

Attack the racists and fascists, history has always proved that they’ll be the allies of the bosses, patriarchs and the state, pretending to speak for the white underdog. It’s a mistake to let them fester.

Lastly, across the channel in Calais fascists have fallen back for the moment after an international call-out to fight their repeated attacks on squats and migrants, though the bigger enemy remains the authorities and the state.

Solidarity to Damien Camelio also in France doing time for burning buildings used by the army, the prison service, National Front, and calling to arms against repression in all forms.

Neither Left nor Right – Anti-State and Anti-Fascist

‘March for England’ – Anti-fascists beat the Nazis off the streets of Brighton again! (UK)

Monday, April 28th, 2014

¡No Pasarán!

From inthebellyofthebeast:

The annual March for England portrayed as a patriotic protest on St Georges day is an excuse for the fascist scum of the EDL (English Defence League) to plague the streets of Brighton. This year they got was coming to them when they were out numbered by 2,000 anti-fascists coming from all across the country.

The march this year was shortened due to the collapse of the road at the sea front. (even nature did not want the fascists to march) As usual the march was confronted on its route but restricted by a massive police presence with forces even being shipped in from as far as Cornwall. Also included on the day was the much loved TSG (Tactical Support Group, extremely violent militant police unit) and extensive fencing that included mobile barricades that closed off all streets reaching the beach front where the march was proceeding.

Anti-fascists on the day had no illusions that march at the sea would be impregnable and chose to roam the city centre of Brighton in affinity groups seeking the fascists who would be walking down from the railway station, with some drinking in pubs away from the march looking for a fight with those they are against such as anyone who is not white or skin headed, such as the racist attacks that happened last year after the march.

Calais: Fascist attacks continue against Rue Émile Dumont, Coulogne & call-out for assembly (France)

Monday, February 24th, 2014

Read this: Calais: Communiqué from people inside Rue Émile Dumont, Coulogne

325 receives and transmits:

UPDATE 8AM Monday 24/2:

Local Calais media are reporting the demonstration of around 50 racists continued through Sunday. The fire brigade were called after a group of men were spotted nearby by neighbours with jerrycans of petrol to prepare more molotov cocktails.

ASSEMBLY AGAINST FASCISM AND FOR TOLERANCE. AND SOLIDARITY

Call-out from anti-racist residents of Calais.

Gathering with music and dance, words and food.

Saturday 1 March 2.30 PM. Place d’Armes, Calais.

We are indignant to see that hundreds of people are living in the street whilst houses are empty and abandoned. Indignant about the passivity or hostility of the authorities and for the demonstrations of fascist hatred in these last days.

These fascists do not represent Calais. There are also many more people who have been engaged for years, as individuals or with groups, in hospitality and openness.

Whether we are long term residents of Calais or passing through, we will come to share a moment of tolerance and solidarity.

Sydney: Antifascist Actions (Australia)

Monday, February 24th, 2014

On the 26th of January in Brisbane, a few members of a fascist sect called the ‘Australia First Party’ attempted to disrupt the annual invasion day march held by the local indigenous community. On the same day in Canberra the fuehrer of the party, Jim Saleam (former leader of ‘National Action’ and ’Australian Nazi Party’) gave a podium speech at a protest against the new Bikie laws in Queensland. Back in December the party held a small rally outside the Greek consulate in Sydney in support of the ultra-nationalist Golden Dawn party. (more…)
