A communique by Giannis Mihailidis concerning his stance during his trial (Greece)

Friday, October 17th, 2014

Read the full dialogue which took place between various anarchist prisoners and the “Kontra” newspaper here.

I write these lines because of the public critique I received by communist newspaper “Kontra”, concerning my stance to discredit courts by being absent from the procedure. Initially I would like to clarify that I do not dispute even a little bit the comradely intentions of this critique and I recognize the contribution of this specific project as very important to the struggle, with the presence at and update of all terror-trials.

I think the root of this disagreement, is the crucial difference between anarchist analyses and Marxist ideology, concerning the role of the state mechanism, its institutions and the social contracts. (more…)

Reflexiones sobre avance de la represión en Chile – Propagando la solidaridad con Juan, Nataly y Guillermo

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

La acción y la solidaridad son urgentes. Todo lo demás son excusas.

Reflexiones sobre avance de la represión en Chile.

Propagando la solidaridad con Juan, Nataly y Guillermo.

(Texto de Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras)

1. Y aquí vamos otra vez. Porque la guerra continúa.

Tras un ciclo acumulativo de agitación callejera, movilizaciones masivas y expansión de conflictos sociales en Chile, el poder ha buscado generar mecanismos que favorezcan la continuidad y fortalecimiento del modelo de dominación democrático.

Con tal de evitar que las grietas en el cuestionado orden social se extiendan o se vuelvan más profundas, el gobierno de turno ha desplegado diversas tácticas que le permiten anular progresivamente el descontento.
Así, a las movilizaciones masivas que han puesto en cuestión el modelo económico y social gestado en dictadura, se ha respondido con propuestas de reformas sociales que recuperan las consignas de los movimientos de protesta para incluirlos en soluciones configuradas desde el Estado. (more…)

Political statement of anarchist comrade Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, in the trial for the Velvento, Kozani double bank robbery case (Greece)

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

Background: Text by the 4 arrested anarchists concerning the double robbery in Velvento, Kozani + Anarchists sentenced for the double bank robbery in Velvento + Letter from Argyris Ntalios & Fivos Harisis

via actforfree:

31/7/14

Comrade A.D. Bourzoukos made his political statement today. Comrades D.Politis, G.Mihailidis, F.Harisis and A.Dalios were also present in the court room.

To begin, I would like to clarify the reason I am here today, by taking advantage of the procedure of statements. What will follow therefore, will in no way have an apologetic character, since my acts and choices are included in the wider anarchist struggle, the struggle for life and freedom. Consequently, they are acts that I support with every aspect of my being and I will continue to do so as long as this world remains as it is.

So, no, I am not apologizing, I have to nothing to say and analyse on a procedural level about my actions. I refuse the charges exactly because I refuse civil legality. I refuse to legitimize your role and your justice which is driven and instructed by those governing.

I therefore do not hope for your leniency, I will not bend before the threat of your laws and the many years of prison that await me, even in the worst of conditions that your state reserves for those who refuse to bow their head. These new prisons called “C- Type prisons”. I am here to highlight the characteristics of my choices and exacerbate the dispute between us. You, a part of the judicial authority, and me, a part of the anarchist struggle. And when I say “you”, I do not mean just you specifically, but all the people who hold positions of authority. It is a dispute that escapes the narrow frames of a inter-personal clash, it is a class and social war that spreads in the space-time continuum, it finds its roots in the initial forms of capitalism and the relations of exploitation and authority which for centuries now have defined the human race.

Solidarity with Juan, Natalie and Guillermo: 3 arrested comrades are formally charged under the anti-terrorist law in recent Santiago bombings case (Chile)

(Translated by Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras from “Refractario”)

On Tuesday, September 23, 2014, the judicial formalization of charges was performed against Juan Flores, Natalie Casanova and Guillermo Duran, comrades arrested on September 18 accused of the last explosive attacks that occurred in Santiago.

In a special courtroom (with two floors), used for large prosecutions, formalization was performed with a great security device that included the presence of anti-riot prison guards and various controls before enter the court room.

The 3 comrades were charged under anti-terrorist law:

Juan Flores: Charged with 5 accusations. Accused as the author of the subway bombing in “Los Diminicos” station (July 23) and the “Sub-center” (September 8 ), actions that were claimed by “Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Chile”.

Update on CCF’s trial – Sessions 99th-109th (Greece)

Monday, August 11th, 2014

Inter Arma received and translated:

109th session

In this session the testimonies of the defence witnesses called by some defendants who are not members of CCF, were scheduled to begin. Before the beginning of this procedure, the comrades of CCF read a statement concerning their refusal to call defence witnesses.

Here are some fragments of that statement:

” … this trial is reaching its end. At this point, your legal culture gives us the right to call defence witnesses. But the logic of calling some other individual to defend you, seems crippled and victim-like to us.

We are aware of the fact that, a parade of defence witnesses takes place in many trials against anarchists and that one can even find representatives of the Left and university professors among those people.

Quite often, defence witnesses in full cooperation with the defendants build a humanitarian profile for the ones prosecuted, presenting them to be “good people”, “intelligent students” and “pure ideologues” in order to win the judges’ sympathy. This whole scenery seems to us more like a psychotherapy session than an aggressive stance against the judges. (…) So, we are neither “good people” nor “intelligent students” and “pure ideologues” who are prosecuted for their ideals. We are anarcho-nihilists prosecuted because they put their ideas into practice without ever regretting anything.

This is why we refuse to be victims that need defence. For us the best “defence” is the continuing actions of the illegal cell of CCF and the network of FAI/IRF.

So, we don’t look for defence witnesses but for accomplices to commit the “crime” of anarchy (…)”.

After the reading of the statement, the lawyers of the rest of the defendants referred to some trial documents. A document was filed which proved that A.Mitrousias takes classes of the Open University while in prison, while there was a reference to the fact that G.Karagiannidis attended a graduation ceremony in order to receive his degree, while the comrades of CCF were in clandestinity.

The testimony of the first defence witness was interrupted because of the tension created in the courtroom.

108th session

The reading of additional documents continued.

107th session

The reading of additional documents continued.

106th session

The reading of additional documents continued.

105th session

The reading of the reasoning of the condemnatory decision of the previous trial continued.

104th session

The reading of the reasoning of the condemnatory decision of the previous trial continued.

103d session

The reading of the reasoning of the condemnatory decision of the previous trial continued. Among other things, it was stated that CCF’s attacks had a negative impact on the country’s image abroad and that this resulted in scaring foreign financial investors.

102nd session

The basic reasoning of the condemnatory decision of the previous trials against CCF for the Chalandri case was read (we remind you that the comrades have already been sentenced to more than 200 years of imprisonment…). Indicative of the trial’s atmosphere is the fact that it was stated that the warning telephone call before the explosion in the Ministry of Macedonia and Thrace was made to “terrorize” civilians.

101st session

The session was postponed due to the absence of one of the judges.

100th session

The reading of some additional documents of the Counter-terrorism agency was completed and the date for the next session, where the testimonies of the defence witnesses would begin, was scheduled. The comrades of CCF stated that they will not call defence witnesses since they stand against the logic of being defended by other individuals in an enemy territory like a courtroom. “We are not here to have defence witnesses calling us “good people” with “ideals”. We are here because we are prisoners of the state and we declare that we are everlasting enemies of the system you represent…”

99th session

In this session the question of whether the defendants who haven’t claimed responsibility for participating in CCF, are indeed members of the group or not, was raised once again.

The comrades of CCF repeated in every possible way that it goes without saying that whoever doesn’t claim responsibility for being a member of CCF cannot obviously be their comrade or a member of the group.

That was the first time when the judge and the prosecutor referred to “secondary members”, who are not part of the group’s nucleus and don’t make decisions, wanting to create suspicions for the rest of the defendants. The comrades of CCF clearly stated that there are neither secondary or main members nor a decision making nucleus. CCF is a not group that was created on the basis of rules and hierarchy but a living experiment of human relations, far away from leaders and followers. Their exact statement was the following: “CCF is a conspiracy of friendship and comradeship among anarchists who feel alive only in their actions.” While they, once again, affirmed the deep political and ethical differences, which separate them from the rest of the defendants.

Sessions with defence witnesses

The testimonies of the defence witnesses called by A. Mitrousias, K. Sakkas, G. Karagiannidis and S. Antoniou, who have nothing to do with CCF, took place in the following sessions.

Among the defence witnesses were personal friends of the defendants, their parents, former employers, university professors, DNA scientists as well as communists and anarchists.

All of them testified that those defendants have nothing to do with CCF and its actions. The political defence witnesses testified about things like the massive movement, the police frame-ups against anarchists, the oppression of Capital, the social struggles, while the judges were often asking about the difference between an anarchist and an anti-authoritarian (?). The personal defence witnesses testified about the character of the defendants and their relationship with them, in their working area (i.e. there was a testimony by the former employer of G. Karagiannidis) and in other social relations (from the testimonies it became known that A. Mitrousias had decided to surrender himself on the 8th of December in order to go on trial during the first trial against CCF).

In between those sessions the nationwide hunger strike of the prisoners in Greece against the bill for the creation of maximum security prisons took place. The comrades of CCF and the rest of the defendants interrupted the trial until the end of the hunger strike.

Grigoris Sarafoudis and Giannis Naxakis found guilty of being anarchists (Greece)

Friday, July 18th, 2014

via actforfree:

In the terror court 17.7.14 for the robbery in Pyrgeto: Guilty, because they are anarchists!

Prosecutor : Trying the case of the robbery in Pyrgeto, Larissas, surpassed all limits and threw away every pretence in the Korydallos terror court. While he admitted during the hearing that there was no evidence of guilt concerning the accused comrades Grigoris Sarafoudis and Giannis Naxakis, because anyway guilt was implied in the indictment “You cannot ignore the fact that the defendants are related to the anti-authoritarian, anarchist movement”!

The TERROR COURT rejected the request for attenuating Grigoris Sarafoudis and imposed the same sentence as Giannis Naxakis with the following sentences:

- 10 years for robbery
- 6 years for participation in a terrorist organization (C.C.F.)
- 5 years for stealing a car
– 2 years for possession of guns.

After the merger, a total of 16 years imprisonment for each.

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”.

Update about the second hearing of the trial against Gianluca and Adriano (Italy)

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

via fenrir:

On the 4th of July in the court of Roma (Italy) the second hearing of the trial against Gianluca and Adriano was held. Even though it was supposed to be with closed doors, a group of comrades managed to enter the courtroom in a moment of distraction of the security guards, in the initial bureaucratic phase of the hearing. They shouted strongly their rage against a proceeding which occurs in the complete absence of the accused. After some minutes they were jostled outside of the courtroom by the Carabineros [military police], while the judge pretended not to even notice what was going on.

We remember that the judge D’Alessandro, accepting the request from the prosecutor, decided that the trial was to be held on videoconference; both Gianluca and Adriano decided not to attend the show-trial, refusing to appear through a screen.

The prosecutor Minisci, already known by the comrades since he’s the same prosecutor in the case for the riots of 15th of October 2011 in Rome, to
reinforce the charges of 270 and 270bis (association for the purposes of terrorism) quoted also some actions that happened outside of Italy, with the aim of inventing some fictional international subversive association. He closed his speech with his request of sentence against the comrades:

- 8 years for Adriano
- 9 years for Gianluca

Next hearing will be on the 18th of July for the speech of Adriano’s defence lawyer and probably for the sentence.

Solidarity with the accused comrades!

Statement by Andreas Tsavdaridis in the trial about the case of “Phoenix” Project (Greece)

Sunday, June 8th, 2014

Inter Arma received and translated:

One and a half months after my arrest, I made a public statement claiming responsibility for the shipping of a parcel bomb to the former chief of the counter-terrorism agency. In this action there are no instigators. I acted alone, based on my values and none of my comrades, who are being trialed with me today, took part in it. Lastly, I want to send my solidarity to all the imprisoned anarchists of the Informal Anarchist Federation.

Notes from the statement by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire in the trial about “Phoenix” Project (Greece)

Saturday, June 7th, 2014

Inter Arma received and translated:

Within two years, this is the 4th trial against CCF. We had the trial on the Halandri case, on the trapped [explosive] packages, on the 250 attacks, and now the trial for the “Phoenix Project.”

Obviously, all this shows the fury and vengeance of authority against us, as it creates a stifling court vice around us, with recurrent trials. Trials, in which we are accused two and three times for the same “offense.”

This one trial, however, has a characteristic in relation to the preceding. This is a trial for the “Project Phoenix” guerrilla operations, made while we were already prisoners in the prisons of the state. Of course, this is not the first time during our imprisonment, that we face instigation charges. Charges, which lack any logic, even according to your own legal culture. I am talking about the vindictive prosecutions against us, for public texts released from prison, such as the texts in solidarity with the Anarchist Squat Nadir, and the texts in which we refuse to apologize and recognize the judicial authorities. Of course, we could not omit the highlight of the legal coup, which is the indefinite extension of the pre-trial detention of four of our comrades of the Conspiracy, Gerasimos, George, Olga and Theofilos, who despite having surpassed the stipulated limit of 18 months, they remain in captivity. To be specific, Gerasimos has been in custody for 43 months, George, Olga and Theofilos over 36 months. (more…)

Towards the trial against Gianluca and Adriano on 26 May in Rome (Italy)

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

Also, check out the latest letter and drawings of Gianluca. International solidarity to the two anarchists against all systems of domination – War to the techno-industrial complex and the immiseration of life.

Gianluca and Adriano, anarchists, were arrested 19 September 2013.

The operation was co-ordinated by the deputy prosecutor Giancarlo Capaldo of the anti-terrorism unit and the general commander of Mario Parente Ros, and considered the anarchists authors of a number of various kinds of damages that occurred in the province of Rome : Thirteen acts of sabotage committed against some banks, a fur shop, and branch offices of ENI and ENEL (energy companies) and the Roncigliano landfill.

The authorities impose upon them the charges of association for purposes of terrorism or subversion of the democratic order, as well as those of fire and theft, aggravated by the circumstances of competition, disfigurement and contamination of other people’s property. (more…)

On Thursday, May 8, it was scheduled for the defense witnesses of A. Mitsousias, G. Karagiannidis, K.Sakkas and Stella Antoniou to testify, individuals for whom, CCF has made clear, that they have nothing to do with the group.

Mitrousias is attending Open University classes while being in jail, in the field of humanitarian studies. Afterwards, some documents were presented by Karagiannidis, proving that during the time, in which the arrest warrants for the comrades of CCF were issued, he was at the graduation ceremony of the university he was attending as a student.

After that, the comrades of CCF made a short statement regarding their refusal to use what they called “democratic right of having defense witnesses”. (more…)

Repression against animal liberation comrades in Skövde (Sweden)

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

Late 14th and early 15th of October 2013, five comrades were arrested and imprisoned in Skövde, Sweden, suspected for over twenty different attacks on furfarmers and the fur industry as well as liberations of minks. Three of the comrades were later considered to be main suspects and the two others were released, however still being suspects. Close upon the trial startup end of January, yet another person was detained for involvement in some of the suspected attacks but this person was also released, still being a suspect.

During their interrogations the three main suspects kept their mouths shut, besides one comrade who took the responsibility for a suspected arson against a garage belonging to a fur farmer.

Seeing the media potential, the disgusting ex-minister of justice Thomas Bodström, nowadays a populistic lawyer, took it on himself to represent all the fur farmers in the court process. (more…)

DSEi arrestees privately prosecute companies who exhibited torture weapons at arms conference (UK)

Sunday, March 30th, 2014

DSEi is the largest arms fair in the world, held at the Excel centre in Docklands, London. 325 usually does not print UK social activist news, such as legal challenges to the status quo. However, due to the NATO conference in Wales this year, and the diversity of tactics guildline, we have decided to print selected news relating to anti-arms trade and anti-militarism topics for the duration, or until we see fit to cease. We respect the aim of the DSEi arrestees who “see this litigation as part of a wider strategy to discredit, and then shut down DSEi for good”.

We need your help to put the arms dealers on trial. We are a group of women seeking to privately prosecute the arms dealers who sold illegal torture weapons at DSEi arms fair last year. You can learn more about our case and sign up for updates on our website: http://armsdealersontrial.wordpress.com/

Blackmail3 Court Case Update (UK)

Monday, March 17th, 2014

Here’s a brief update on the court case for one of the ‘Blackmail3′ defendants potentially due to come to a conclusion on Monday. More info and background at www.blackmail3.org [also see previous article].

Court updates about Debbie’s trial at Winchester Crown Court over the past five weeks (so far).

Week 1

Wednesday, 12th February 2014: Debbie’s trial begins at Winchester Crown Court and is expected to last about 4 weeks. Due to prosecution’s failure to disclose information and late service of evidence, the trial was adjourned until Monday 17th February.

Week 2

Monday, 17th February 2014: Debbie’s trial reconvened at Winchester Crown Court. In an interesting development, the defence revealed that the ‘Novartis executive’ who campaigners previously dealt with, was in fact an undercover policeman, working under the alias ‘James Adams’. The prosecution were pushing for another adjournment, but the defence put forward their argument for the trial to continue as planned even though there was a chance of an unfair trial. The judge heard from both sides and called for time to deliberate, with court adjourned until 10.30am tomorrow.
