Prosecutors request 44-year sentence against anarchist comrades Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar (Spain)

December 24th, 2015

Prosecutor Teresa Sandoval, of the Audiencia Nacional, has submitted the prosecution’s demand to the 6th tribunal of the Audiencia Nacional, a demand that reflects the investigators’ thesis on comrades Monica and Francisco’s lives.

In their thesis the powerful falsely maintain that GAC (Grupos Anarquistas Coordinados) are an action group responsible for several explosive and incendiary attacks, which the group allegedly claimed. The inquisitor in charge is trying to take advantage of the antiterrorist hysteria caused by the attacks perpetrated by ISIS religious fascists in Europe, remarking that ‘the insurrectional affinity groups, like the jihadist cells, are perfectly clear about their generic enemy and therefore need no superior command in order to set an attack in motion.’

The prosecutor acknowledges that before the attack on the Basilica del Pilar a warning telephone call was made to a nearby beauty centre so that the authorities were alerted. As the receivers believed it was a joke they didn’t alert the authorities and the device detonated while people were inside the building; as a result a person suffered ear damage.

Following this rambling on terrorism, the sentence demanded against the comrades is 44 years each, comprising:

Belonging to a terrorist organization: 9 years

Ear damage caused to a victim: 12 years

Terrorist attack (the explosion at the Basilica del Pilar): 18 years

Conspiracy to commit similar attacks (alleged reconnaissance of the Basilica de Montserrant in Barcelona): 5 years

The threat of stratospheric sentences is nothing new to the comrades: at the trial for the ‘Caso Bombas’ in Chile the prosecutors’ request was 20 years for Monica and 25 for Francisco. It won’t be the threat of years in prison made by the Spanish State that will stop insurrection or the will to struggle.

International and insurrectional solidarity for the destruction of all sentences!

Eternal love in revolt for the comrades… Always ready for action, not a step back!

War against ISIS/Daesh: Daesh and Esedullah Team at work in Silopi (Turkey, Kurdistan)

December 23rd, 2015

via ANF News:

ŞIRNAK – ANF – Wednesday, December 23, 2015 4:40 PM

A civilian in Silopi told that some persons introducing themselves as DAESH and Esedullah Team tortured and threatened them in a basement for two days.

As the state of siege has left 10 days behind in Şırnak’s Silopi district, state forces have yet not managed to enter the areas of self-rule despite the ongoing and intensified attacks across the town. In other neighborhoods, a gang group called DAESH and Esedullah Team has been mobilized.

Civilian Veysel B. from Nuh neighborhood told that masked teams have demolished walls of their houses with a sledge hammer. The man said these people who introduced themselves as DAESH and Esedullah Team tortured him and his neighborhoods two days long.

‘WE ARE DAESH, ESEDULLAH TEAM’

Veysel B. said these masked people broke into their houses, locked him and his neighborhoods up in a basement and tortured them for hours. “They were chanting pro-ISIS slogans, saying ‘We are DAESH and Esedullah teams, we will eradicate you all’. After the torture, they forced us to go up to the roof and make us a target for snipers. When we insisted on not doing so, they continued torturing us.”

‘GANGS TERRORIZE PEOPLE IN SİLOPİ’

The man told the followings as to the current situation in the town; “These gangs are terrorizing the people in Silopi. They kind of see red. They are doing anything possible to evacuate the houses. They have battered hundreds of people and forcibly taken them to nearby villages. Someone must hear our scream now. We have no security of life at all. Silopi is occupied by gangs and hired murderers. Silopi faces a genocide.”

War against ISIS/Daesh: International call for solidarity by the Women’s Freedom Assembly – KÖM (Turkey, Rojava, Syria)

December 22nd, 2015

Dear Sir/Madam,

We are women who have come together as the Women’s Freedom Assembly (KÖM)
in order to create a common language regarding all aspects of women’s
struggle for freedom, to intervene and collectively demonstrate presence in
all spheres of life, to be a party and take active role in the peace and
negotiation process in Turkey. At this moment,

The war in Turkey is intensifying; people, all living beings and history
is being destroyed!

As the State becomes more and more ISIS-like, the peoples’ resistance
resembles Kobanê!

In the Kurdish towns/provinces of Hakkari, Dargeçit, Sur, Nusaybin, Silopi
and Cizre, the State:

· Has removed all doctors’ leaves and permissions, calling all
medical equipment personnel to be prepared,

· Has emptied out student dormitories, placing security forces
within them instead of students, Read the rest of this entry »

Athens: Incendiary attack against security systems provider (Greece)

December 21st, 2015

In recent years, in the name of an ever-increasing security and the quashing of terrorism and criminality, repression has intensified by various means: ever-larger policing, security guards, wiretapping, monitoring of all electronic media, surveillance cameras which are installed in every neighbourhood by now, and security systems that protect everyone’s property.

All this always occurs with the consent of those who eagerly expose every aspect of their daily routine, for the sake of their property’s safeguarding and under the illusion that they have control over their lives.

It is understandable that domination continually evolves technology to its benefit and, through diffused fear, largely acquires control over every location of metropolises.

That is where the wager is placed for a minority of people who don’t give a damn about the modern lifestyle, but instead experiment, conspire and continue the hostilities against domination, its civilisation and the culture of the living dead, who may voluntarily become snitches.

In the early hours of Friday 11th December, in the context of Black December, we placed an incendiary device at a security systems store on Formionos Street in the neighbourhood of Vyronas.

We dedicate this act to all anarchists behind prison walls.

LONG LIVE ANARCHY

PS. We don’t know why this action was concealed by the mass media, but we don’t give a damn about the reason why.

Attack against the Alliance for Transgenics by Eco-Extremist Circle of Terrorism & Sabotage (Mexico)

December 20th, 2015

Alianza Pro Transgenicos (Alliance for Transgenics) was the victim of two recent bombing attempts. One bomb exploded from a package delivered to one of the alliance’s offices, wounding the organization’s Vice President, engineer Mario Berlanga, and an associate. The other package bomb delivered a day later was not
opened and handed over to Mexican authorities, which are investigating.
No one was seriously injured.

Translated from Por la Anarquia:

Biotechnology, genetic engineering, bioinformatics, economic botany,
agronomy, among other sciences, develop improvements in the research,
production and implementation of technological innovations, supposedly
friendly for the environment; “minimizing the damage” caused to nature,
“reducing pollution” and proposing processes with “less environmental
impact.”
The final purpose of these sciences, using all methods and
techniques at their disposal, is to artificialize natural biological
processes.

Genetically modifying organisms to improve crop quality, in terms of the
land, agriculture being an important part of soil devastation,
destroying wilderness for macro level cultivation, preventing the
slightest sign of regeneration of the natural environment, ensuring good
harvests for at least as long as the lands health lasts. Read the rest of this entry »

Anarchist prisoner Osman Evcan resisted and won his fight again (Turkey)

December 20th, 2015

Osman Evcan and Hasan Çınar gained the victory from the determined
struggle which they put their lives against the state inside the thick
walls of prison which they are enclosed. Osman and Hasan, got what they
demanded through this hard period. Osman Evcan ended his indefinite
hunger strike which took 39 days against intimidation and extermination
politics against prisoners in prison and again he proved us that how he
is right about his call to raise struggle.

We celebrate Osman Evcan who has proved that the thick walls that are
built in order to revitalize the new “terrorist” wave that the Turkish
state needed and legitimize further operations cannot be an obstacle to
anarchists at all. The “punishment” system and their officials that made
comrade Osman Evcan suffer hunger for 39 days and tortured him are our
enemies. The recognized demands of Osman Evcan and Hasan Çınar are not a
matter of grace, instead that is the end of torturous practices. Torture
is the state policy. We are grateful to everyone who have held
demonstrations, spoken up, and support for Osman Evcan’s cause. Osman
Evcan is now trying to get over the adverse effects of the hunger strike
process, and his present health condition is fine. We will share the
message from Osman Evcan and Hasan Çınar soon.

With anarchist solidarity,

ABC Istanbul

“A Little Bit of So Much Me” : Letter from Casey Brezik (USA)

December 19th, 2015

What’s up comrades?! Good to see you’ve taken at least a vague interest in my support site. I appreciate that. Some people might already know who I am, either through correspondence or possibly because they were unfortunate enough to have known me in the past, before I caught this case. Lol. For those of you who don’t know me, or haven’t heard from me in so long, I want to make this post for you. I want to tell you who I am now because, like everyone, I too have grown and matured through time. Hopefully, I’ll continue to do so.

Currently, I’m serving 12 years for a botched/failed assassination attempt on Governor Jay Nixon’s life. I’ll spare the details for my next post. For now, it’s only relevant that I’m serving 85% of those 12 years and will be eligible for parole in November 2020. Five years from now. Read the rest of this entry »

Montreal: Private patrol car sabotaged for a Black December (Canada)

December 19th, 2015

No peace for the defenders of commodity-society!

In the early hours of Wednesday Dec 2, we punctured the tires of a patrol car belonging to the private security company Garda on the corner of St-Jacques and Irene in the Montreal neighborhood of St-Henri. Garda provides prison, security and deportation services, profiting intensely from many aspects of this burning dumpster of an existence under capitalism. So, you know, fuck ’em. We claim this action within the context of the international call for a black December by imprisoned Greek anarchists. Through this communique, we wish to express our sincerest criminal complicity with all fugitive and incarcerated anarchist comrades around the world.

Black December is everywhere.

Appellate court granted a commutation for Brest antifascists (Belarus)

December 19th, 2015

On December 15 a regional appellate court have commuted the sentence of
two Brest antifascists, convicted on charges of participating in a mass
fight with neonazis that took place on May 8, 2013. The new sentence of
Dzmitry Stsyashenka is 3 years and of Roman Bogdan – 6 years of penal
colony. The sentence was commuted by two years for each prisoner, most
probably because they had paid the damage to the injured noenazi (all in
all about 3500 euros). Almost half of it was paid by their relatives.

Istanbul: Demo for Osman Evcan, vegan anarchist on hungerstrike (Turkey)

December 19th, 2015

video & pictures

A demonstration took place in Taksim (Istanbul) to show solidarity with
vegan anarchist Osman Evcan who is on hunger strike for 37 days, and
with the political prisoner Hasan Çınar who is on hunger strike for 15
days. The demo continued by constant threats by the riot police and
ended by police attack after the public statement.

Public statement

Vegan anarchist prisoner Osman Evcan- who is resisting against authority
in prisons for 23 years- is demanding total freedom against the
ecological destruction and slaughter, hunger, poverty and war politics
that state, civilization and capitalism created.

Osman’s first hungerstrike was at 2011 to access vegan food in jail
which lasted 42 days. During his hungerstrike the anarchists, animal
liberationists all over the World and in Turkey supported Osman’s fight
to access vegan food in prison. After 42 days of hungerstrike the
government took a step back and made regulations for the vegan and
vegeterian prisoners in prison: ”Vegan or vegetarian prisoners demands
will be accepted as long as its limited by subsistence allowance”
.

After his hunger strike for 33 days on June 2015 he took vegan food
supplies one step further and he gained the right to get vegan food from
outside the prisons. Read the rest of this entry »

Osman Evcan is on hunger strike for 35 days – Hasan Çınar is on hunger strike for 10 days (Turkey)

December 15th, 2015

Osman Evcan continues his indefinite hunger strike to protest Kocaeli no.
1 F Type prison and other prisons of oppressive, authoritarian, retributive,
unjust practices. He is on hunger strike since 10th November 2015. Also
Osman Evcan’s cellmate Hasan Çınar started an indefinite hunger strike 10
days ago to support Osman. He is suffering from stomach cancer. Due to
his health condition this hunger strike might be really dangerous for
him in a really short time period.

We got the information that Osman Evcan’s health condition is good for
now and he continues his hunger strike with strength. He also told us in
his letter that the prison administration and prison prosecutor is
putting pressure on him by going into his cell, yelling at him with
threats so that he brings his hunger strike to an end. But he
underlines that he is determined to continue the hunger strike. Besides
that he says that he is thankful to everyone who is supporting him by
sending letters, by protests, by creating a public opinion. He sends
everyone his love and greetings. Read the rest of this entry »
