On Saturday 28 February in Zurich, Switzerland, there was a demo/rally organised by Revolutionäres Bündnis Zürich, against racism and repression and for solidarity. The demo was specifically as part of international solidarity days for Albert Woodfox, member of Angola 3 and Black Panthers. An American flag was burned in front of the banner “Freedom for A. Woodfox and all the Black Panther prisoners”

Gestern Nacht haben wir als Beitrag zur Kampagne gegen das World Economic Forum die RUAG Defence (im Gebäude mit der Adresse Im Tiergarten 7 ZH) und die NEOSOFT AG (im Gebäude mit der Adresse Üetlibergstrasse 132 ZH) mit Feuerwerk angegriffen. Der Angriff richtet sich gegen zwei Exponenten der schweizer Rüstungsindustrie, wobei die RUAG ein Bundesunternehmen ist. Abgeschlossene Rüstungsdeals und Militärabkommen am WEF in Davos unterstreichen die Bedeutung, welche dieses Jahrestreffen für diesen Teil der hiesigen Wirtschaft hat.
Per 19. September 2014 wurde die Verordnung über das Kriegsmaterial, welche die Exportbedingungen von schweizer Waffen regelt, von Bundesrat gelockert, nachdem das Parlament im März 2014 sich für diesen Schritt eingesetzt hatte. Hintergrund dieser Lockerung ist die Klage grosser Rüstungskonzerne (wie die RUAG oder MOWAG), dass ihr Umsatz aufgrund strikter Exportbeschränkungen eingebrochen sei. Denn seit 2008 war der Export von Kriegsmaterial an Länder verboten, in denen Menschenrechte “systematisch und schwerwiegend” verletzt würden. Dieser Passus wurde im Herbst vergangenen Jahres gestrichen, nun ist der Waffenexport wieder erlaubt, wenn nur eine geringes Risiko bestehe, dass die Waffen zu “systematischen und schwerwiegenden” Menschenrechtsverletzungen eingesetzt werden.

We attacked the Greek consulate in Zürich on September 8 as a delayed contribution to the international days of solidarity for anarchist prisoners. The official representation of the Greek state in Zürich was chosen for two reasons. First of all because Nikos Maziotis (militant of the Revolutionary Struggle) was recently arrested in Greece after a manhunt through Athens and after having being shot in the shoulder. This arrest follows a campaign by the state and the media in which Nikos and Pola Roupa have been declared as top fugitives and a huge bounty has been declared for their arrests. Despite him being arrested the media campaign aiming to negate his political identity continues. (more…)

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!

Against high security prisons
Immediately, after the government reshuffle and the flagrantly closing sessions of the Parliament, the political staff of the local and international capital, gives priority to the voting of the bill for creating high security prisons during the summer sessions of the Parliament. The bill will be submitted for debate on the 17th of June.
The proposed legislation proposes the creation of 3 types of prisons with escalating repression. The debts prisoners will be kept in the “milder” wings called wings Type A. The majority of the prisoners will be “stored” in wings Type B under terrible conditions. Simultaneously, wings Type C are being created for prisoners belonging to the category of “special and prominent danger”.
The target of this bill are the anarchists and the communists, who were imprisoned for their political actions, the undisciplined prisoners, namely those who fight against the cruel reality of imprisonment and finally the prisoners accused for organized crime. (more…)

“Do not say that we are few; just say that we are determined” – by the R.O. CCF and Theofilos Mavropoulos (Greece)

Contribution of the nine imprisoned members of the R.O. CCF and anarchist prisoner Theofilos Mavropoulos to an international anarchist meeting convened under the insurrectional perspective (Zurich, 10–13 November 2012)
“Do not say that we are few.. Just say that we are determined..”
The question is not whether we are more or less poor, but whether we live in a way that does not contain us. We do not want to repeat things that have already been said.
We have banished from our minds the idea of central governance, and we do not believe in legends about the phantom of the proletariat. We are thus neither faced with an isolated State, which allegedly gives commands from the palaces of its Power, nor with a society that is waiting to be awakened in order to revolt. Today’s society is a pervasive social factory that produces attitudes, values, ethics and habits.
Today’s society works like a social death machine, which devours time, space, emotions and consciousnesses. The centre of the State and the heart of the system are dispersed in millions of small and large representations of Power in our everyday lives. They lie at the language we speak, the images of advertisements, the architecture of the cities, the virtual reality of technology, the people-centered civilization, the firearms of cops, the national symbols of fascists, the locks of private property, the standards we fall in love with, the walls of prisons.
