Santiago, Villa Portales: Barricada y lienzo en memoria de Claudio Paredes (Chile)

February 2nd, 2016



Claudio Paredes era un joven de 18 años militante del FPMR y vecino de
la Villa Portales, quien muere en una explosión el 31 de enero de 1988 en
uno de los edificios de la Villa, mientras preparaba una carga explosiva
contra la dictadura de Pinochet junto a Fernando Villalón y Nelsón Garrido.

Hemos salido y prendido el fuego, queremos parar su fiesta

No hemos podido quedarnos ni quietxs, calladxs ni sumisxs ante la realidad
que vemos pasar ante nuestros ojos y nos ha estado robando la vida por
tantos años.

Hoy cuando hemos podido ver como los poderosos sin pudor, sin vergüenza
alguna han estado talando nuestros milenarios bosques del sur, arrasando
con los ríos para construir sus represas e hidroeléctricas. Contaminando,
desforestando los suelos, enriqueciéndose brutalmente con la tierra que
nos cobija, convirtiendo en mercancía toda flora y fauna existente,
asesinándola. Hoy cuando hemos podido ver como a lxs mapuche se les sigue
asesinando y encarcelando por su legítima lucha y resistencia en pos de la
recuperación de las tierras que les han sido robadas, continuando así la
masacre que comenzaron los invasores hace más de 500 años. Read the rest of this entry »

Delayed Claim of Responsibility for Attacks in Brighton in 2014 (UK)

January 31st, 2016

From Rabble:
Anonymous submission. Note: we have made one edit to the content, the author can contact us if they want to discuss this.

Words without actions are nothing but corpses rotting in the mouths of those “charming and sophisticated” ones, ever ready to smear and drown out the insurrectional project of anarchists of praxis with speech.

Actions without words will never be enough to address and confront our daily struggles for individual liberation and autonomy, for it is with both the pen and the sword, theory and practise, that one is properly armed to give context and coordination to our struggles, to share solidarity and proposals in the most unmediated form, the direct attack against civilisation.

When attacks against the world of power are not claimed or publicised, the potential for spreading radical discussion, tactics and solidarity between whoever is interested is negated. Thus the aims to build a reciprocal, polymorphous and dynamic anarchist offensive is hindered, and the knowledge of so many attacks are lost to the void of clandestinity.

6 February 2015 : Solidarity without limits – Action day against Fortress Europe!

January 31st, 2016

On the 6th of February plenty of right-wing populists, neofascist movements and parties will come together in different places around Europe to take to the streets for their reactionary idea of superior “people” and “nations”. On the one hand we don’t want to accept this and therefore we call you to counter them firmly together taking a stand for political solidarity! On the other hand we want to proclaim this day Europe-wide as a day of action against Fortress Europe!

The conditions in many places all over the world become more unstable with capitalism widening the gap between the poor and the rich. The neo-liberal structural changes of the 70’s and 80’s forced many areas of the global south into deep poverty and debts. After the period of colonialism those changes had once again created dependency from the “western world”. These politics bring exploitation and poverty as well as destruction of the basis of existence. Today neo-colonianism shows itself in it’s diverse forms: land grabbing, seizure of natural resources and raw materials, weaponry exports and free trade agreements, wars under the cover of “interventions to protect the human rights”, support of dictators and authoritarian regimes. One of the consequences is the death of many people not just at the European borders, but also in their home countries. Read the rest of this entry »

'Why allow it to continue?' & other writings by Kevan Thakrar, CSC prisoner (UK)

January 30th, 2016

Since my arrival at Wakefields Close Supervision Centre (CSC), I have experienced something unlike any other prison in the pure extent of the blatant racism which is encouraged by prison officers. Benefits and bonuses are given to racist prisoners, whilst others are kept in total isolation from each other and there is little action which can be taken against the culprits.

For several weeks now the racist Islamaphobic prisoner Nathan Livesy from Manchester has been the main perpetrator of these attacks. Currently undergoing an assessment for his suitability for selection onto the CSC system following slashing another prisoners face at HMP Manchester, and expulsion from Ashworth High security hospital due to his predatory behaviour, Livesy is looking for any way possible to please his captors. He has taken to squirting urine and spitting out of the window onto the ethnic minorities which the officers deliberately place in the exercise cage directly adjacent to his cell, as well as continuously abusing them whilst the officers stand by laughing. Having made open threats to “kill the first Muslim” he sees, Livesy believes he will be returned to normal location in order to carry out his plan.

Text concerning Hambach Forest (Germany)

January 29th, 2016

The conflict against RWE at Hambacher forest has intensified with every
day since the beginning of this new year.

Many individuals embracing a diverse variety of tactics have been hard
at work bringing anarchic mischief to the mine.

Some elements of practical refusal from the occupiers of the forest
include:

* The continuous barricading of the roads used by security and
construction vehicles, as well as structural damage to the bridges they
use with fire and pick axes.

*Tree-spiking and the placement of “potential improvised explosive
devices” in threatened areas of the forest, as well as more and more
barricades, platforms and tree-defenses deeper in the woods.

Reclaim The Cape – Anti-Nuclear action week 22.4.-1.5.2016 (Finland)

January 29th, 2016

So. There’s an anti-nuclear protest site at the west coast of Finland. And it’s
holding an action week between 22th of April – 1th of May, 2016, while celebrating
its first anniversary of existence. What’s all this about? To put it all in a simple
nutshell:

Fennovoima is a Finnish nuclear power company established in 2007 by a consortium of
Finnish power and industrial companies thinking it’s a mighty good idea to put up a
nuke plant at Pyhäjoki, a small municipality at the west coast of Finland – by any
means necessary. Fennovoima’s project nearly faced its much wished-for doom when
German energy giant E.ON, the main investor of the project at that time, decided
nuclear power is bad business and withdrew its money in 2012. Read the rest of this entry »

'Sedition, Subversion, Sabotage: A Long-War Strategy for the Left' by William T. Hathaway (USA)

January 29th, 2016

As the viciousness of capitalism engulfs ever more of us, our yearnings for change are approaching desperation. The system’s current leader, Barack Obama, has shown us that the only change we can believe in is what we ourselves create.

To do that, we need to know what is possible in our times and what isn’t. The bitter probability is that none of us will see a society in which we’d actually want to live. Even the youngest of us will most likely have to endure an increasingly unpleasant form of capitalism. Despite its recurring crises, this system is still too strong, too adaptable, and has too many supporters in all classes for it to be overthrown any time soon. We’re probably not going to be the ones to create a new society.

But we can now lay the groundwork for that, first by exposing the hoax that liberal reforms will lead to basic changes. People need to see that the purpose of liberalism is to defuse discontent with promises of the future and thus prevent mass opposition from coalescing. It diverts potentially revolutionary energy into superficial dead ends. Bernie Sanders’ “long game” campaign is really only a game similar to that of his reformist predecessor, Dennis Kucinich, designed to keep us in the “big tent” of the Democratic Party. Capitalism, although resilient, is willing to change only in ways that shore it up, so before anything truly different can be built, we have to bring it down. Read the rest of this entry »
