In the early hours of Sunday, July 20th, we attacked the bastards of the MAT anti-riot squad with Molotov cocktails at the headquarters of Greece’s socialist PASOK co-ruling party located in Charilaou Trikoupi Street, Exarchia, as a minimum act of solidarity with urban guerrilla fighter Nikos Maziotis…
The States are the only terrorists. Solidarity with urban guerrilla fighters!
Strength and solidarity to anarchist combatant Nikos Maziotis, and Pola Roupa who has a bounty on her head.
Comrade Sadi Özpolat joins the hunger-strike in solidarity with prisoners in Greece against ‘Type C’ prisons (Germany)
Saturday, July 19th, 2014
Besides Sadi Özpolat, Julihmet Düzgün Yuksel, Andreas Krebs, Oliver Rast, Thomas Meyer-Falk and Marco Camenisch are participating in the solidarity hunger strike for the Greek prisoners, from 18-20 July.
In a § 129b – trial [terrorist association] in the Regional Court of Dusseldorf in early 2012, Sadi Özpolat was sentenced to six years in prison. In Turkey, Sadi spent 17 years in jail. He participated in the 1996 death fast and at the beginning of the century, he was the spokesperson of the prisoners in the hunger-strike. In a battle against the introduction of isolation torture “made in Stammhein” in prisons [Stammhein is the prison where the imprisoned members of the Red Army Faction were murdered by the German State], that is going on for almost 7 years, in that time more than 120 people have died.
Death fast, in contrast to hunger strike, is ended only if a result is reached.
After his release in 2003 in Turkey, Sadi was arrested again in 2004. When he was released in 2008, he left Turkey and applied for asylum in France.
Sadi was arrested on 19 May 2010 in French Colmar due to a warrant by the German Attorney General, and in July 2010 he was delivered to the German authorities and sent to prison.
In Germany, Sadi did several hunger strikes to fight for better conditions.
Neben Sadi Özpolat beteiligt auch an dem Solidaritätshungerstreik für die griechischen Gefangenen vom 18-20. Julihmet Düzgün Yüksel, Andreas Krebs, Oliver Rast, Thomas Meyer-Falk und Marco Camenisch ist auch Sadi in den Soli-HS getreten.
In einem §129b – Prozess vor dem OLG Düsseldorf wurde Sadi Özpolat Anfang 2012 zu 6 Jahren Haft verurteilt. In der Türkei war Sadi insgesamt 17 Jahre im Knast. Er nahm am Todesfasten 1996 teil und war Anfang des Jahrhunderts Sprecher der hungerstreikenden Gefangenen. In einen bald 7 Jahre andauernden Kampf, der sich gegen die Einführung der Isolationsfolter „Made in Stammheim“ richtete, starben über 120 Menschen.
Todesfasten wird im Gegensatz zum Hungerstreik erst beendet, wenn ein Resultat erreicht ist.
Nach seiner Entlassung 2003 in der Türkei wurde Sadi 2004 erneut verhaftet. Als er wieder frei kam, reiste er 2008 aus der Türkei aus und stellte einen Asylantrag in Frankreich.
Sadi wurde am 19. Mai 2010 im französischen Colmar aufgrund eines Festnahmeersuchens der Bundesanwaltschaft festgenommen und im Juli 2010 nach Deutschland ausgewiesen und in den Knast gesteckt.
Er trat mehrere Male in der BRD in den Hungerstreik, um bessere Bedingungen zu erkämpfen.
Accion de propaganda antiautoritaria en el dia de la lectura de sentencia contra Fredy, Juan y Marcelo (Chile)
Monday, July 14th, 2014
Respondiendo al llamado de nuestros compañeros y de nuestra propia conciencia insurrecta, decidimos no estar ausentes en solidaridad durante el día de la lectura de la sentencia contra los compañeros presos por el “Caso Security”.
Sabemos que los carceleros no quedan indiferentes cuando se sienten apuntados por la hostilidad anárquicaanticarcelaria, por eso el día de la lectura de las condenas “decoramos” con propaganda la esquina donde está ubicada el complejo represivo-penitenciario que aloja al Centro de Justicia y diversas unidades penales, incluyendo la Cárcel de Alta y Máxima Seguridad, donde se encuentran encarcelados los compañeros del “Caso Security”.

18-20 July: German prisoners to hunger-strike in solidarity with Greek prisoners against the new prison system and as an expression of international prisoners solidarity
Sunday, July 6th, 2014

“An alle Mitgefangenen,
Geht um die Hungerstreikenden Gefangenen in Griechenland
In Griechenland wehren sich seit dem 23. Juni tausende Gefangene mit einem Hungerstreik gegen Gesetze zur Einrichtung von Hochsicherheitsgefängnissen.
An dem Protest nehmen bereits fast 4000 der etwa 12000 in griechischen
Knästen Eingesperrten teil.
Daher wird aus Solidarität und Anteilnahme die bundesweiter Hungerstreik
Bereits in Berlin und einigen Haftanstalten in Bayern wurde der Termin
für den 18.-20.Juli hierfür angesetzt.
“To all fellow prisoners,
This is about the hunger striker prisoners in Greece
In Greece since June 23 thousands of prisoners fight back with a hunger strike against laws establishing High-security prisons.
At the protest already almost 4000 of about 12,000 of those imprisoned in Greek prisons are taking part.
Therefore, for solidarity and sympathy, a nationwide hunger strike is invoked.
Already in Berlin and some prisons in Bayern was the start date of 18-20 July recognized.

The street sign of „FIFA-Strasse“, which was disassembled at the
manifestation at 14 June in front of the head office of FIFA in Zurich, was passed us on today.
In solidarity with all struggles against and around the World Cup in Brasil we fight against the capitalistic exploitation of football through FIFA and the other exponents of capital.
In Greece the capital punishment is now called Prison Type C.
“We fight and resist for our dignity”, wrote the fighting prisoners, which are in hunger strike since monday, 23.06.2014.
Our solidarity shall also be a weapon in this struggle!
International solidarity is our arme!

ACT FOR FREEDOM!
Here are a couple photos of graffiti that appeared in Hastings (UK) in support of the ZAD (a zone to be defended), France and the struggle to save the squat Can Vies in Barcelona, Catalonia, an imposition that comes as the result of the Spanish state and developers to crush dissent, resistance and free spaces.

Nachdem es am Donnerstag den 05.06. zu brutalen Übergriffen von Bullen auf einen Protest der Lampedusa Flüchtlinge und Unterstützer_innen auf dem Hamburger Rathausmarkt gekommen war, gingen Freitag Abend hunderte Menschen in St. Pauli auf die Straße.
Eine große unautorisierte Demonstration mit bis zu 1000 Menschen begann gegen 20 Uhr auf dem Neuen Pferdemarkt und ging über das Schulterblatt.
Parolen gegen Staat und Grenzen wurden gegen Häuserwände, Banken und Geschäfte gesprüht, Feuerwerk gezündet und es war laut. (more…)
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.

On Friday April 11th, three banners were dropped from different highway overpasses in Seattle. This is in solidarity with the hunger strikers held in the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, WA, a facility that currently imprisons and deports immigrants from around the United States. This is also for those on hunger strike in a similar facility in Texas, also run by GEO.
The banners read as follows:
Destroy Borders, Chinga la Migra;
Solidarity with NWDC Hunger Strikers;
Set Fire to ICE, Solidarity with the Hunger Strikers.
With this small act we send strength to those who refuse the authority of their jailers. We send the message that they are not alone and their struggle is not isolated.
Death to the Jailers,
Fire to the Prisons!

On the night of February 22nd, we poured a mixture of sand and water into the fuel tanks of two tractors used in the construction of a new Atlanta streetcar. The streetcar is one of many major development projects the city has initiated in the past few years as a part of a general plan to revitalize downtown. We know that this plan only means more police and unaffordable housing.
We offer this small gesture of solidarity to the ZAD, the No TAV movement, and the occupation of the Hambach Forest. We would also like to send strength to those affected by increased surveillance or repression the new developments have brought to Atlanta.
Our action was very simple to perform. It did not take long to plan or to enact and we found all of the materials on the side of the road. We do not believe that an accumulation of “actions” makes a revolution, but we wanted to give encouragment to the current and future participants of revolutionary struggles. Onward, strong hearts!

On the night of February 11-February 12, 2014, a vehicle of SPIE burst into flames, on Carducci street (ΧΙΧe).
SPIE is involved in the nuclear industry, in the optical fiber digital network and in the “1,000 cameras” plan, in the city of Paris. For these reasons, it must be attacked everywhere, all the time.
Snitch hunting has begun!
We send a greeting of love and struggle to the comrades whose trial started on February 3, in Koridallos women’s prisons. For anarchy!
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.

via contrainfo & parabellum
In the early hours of Thursday, September 26, 2013 we placed an explosive device at the tax office located in Kifissia [a northern suburb of Athens], as a first response to the efforts of the State to be portrayed as the referee and punisher of its Golden-Dawn employees, and its creation of a spectacle that can serve as a smokescreen, aiming to conceal its own fascist style of governance, as well as the murderous new austerity measures. Fascism, just like presidential parliamentary democracy, is a model of Power that’s based on the current economic organization and promotes capitalist interests. The policies which are implemented are those mandated by the free market, interests of which will never be democratic—in reality, we neither see democracy and freedom applied in working environments, nor in everyday life, which is organized by capitalism. Modern totalitarianism is imposed by concentration camps, shootings of migrant farm workers, as happened in Manolada [in the Peloponnese], the shutdown of public hospitals, layoffs, movie-inspired invasions of squats, starvation wages, the imprisonment of fighters, the defamation of leaderless social struggles, the public stigmatization of [alleged]HIV-positive women, tax raids, and the existing and future memoranda with the IMF/ECB/EU Troika.

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

A major line of Power was sabotaged. It occurred about a month ago (today is October 3rd 2013), during a pleasant night in the countryside somewhere in eastern Kanada, as all the comfortable slaves were so happily preparing their children to go back to a new level of brainwashing and behavioral social conditioning, with cops now keeping a preying eye upon them at school, so to prepare them for the prison world.
Lifting myself out of despair and isolation from this social daymare, I went on this nightly escapade to perform an act of monkey-wrenching against a High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) power line, unbolting a bunch of nuts on two out of the four legs of those steel goliaths of technological enslavement that circulate power cross border, with only a large wrench, and a light metal tube to fit on the handle for extra leverage. While I would have greatly enjoyed the company and team work of other insurgents, I neither had the time or energy left to get them into action. But rest assured I did it no matter what, have put a lot of sweat into it, and it wasn’t a big deal at all. So they say, it’s easy to attack. Getting in and out of there is always harder.
I did this for Jerry Koch, for Marie Mason, for Maddy Pfeiffer, as well as for the millions of lesser-known others rotting in the concrete cells of a hardcore bandit capitalism that reigns over the US and the West in general. I want to bring down this fucking system of corporate piggery, and thought that literally bringing down their system’s backbone, one bolt at a time, seems like a favorable tactic. (more…)
