Rejection of the request for release of comrade Marco Camenisch (Switzerland)

April 17th, 2015

From actforfree:

Once again the Federal Tribunal rejected request of release on bail for Marco Camenish on 3rd December 2014, after the comrade has served 2/3 of the sentence, thus postponing his liberation to 2018.

The request had already been rejected by the Administrative Tribunal of Zurich on 24th October 2013, on the grounds that the comrade had showed no signs of repent in the course of the years.

The Swiss judiciary understanding of the case continues to follow the same line, as usual, and this is significant and conclusive as for the mechanisms of repressive revenge towards indomitable anarchist prisoners.

A contribution to the international call against prisons from Chile, by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (Greece)

April 17th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

This is where wolves are silent because people are screaming…

10-20 of April: an international campaign of comrades in Chile, against prison. Ten days against the obeisances of those who learned to live like servants. A message of complicity. Words that escaped from the prisons of Chile, traveled thousands of kilometers away, crossed borders, police forces, censorship and reached our cells. Thoughts and meanings that became our sleepless friends to our difficult moments of the hunger strike we carried out. Where life and death stand a breath, heartbeat less away from each other, there where comradeship, solidarity and complicity give advantage to life. Words and thoughts of comrades from Chile gave us courage, tenacity and a hoard of smiles.

Against a society that accepts being marked with the mark of authority, with ID numbers, tax records, cameras, products’ barcodes, Facebook, virtual reality, monitors, here we also stand, we who refuse to be tamed. We refuse to become the obedient pets in the shop window of survival that repeats itself and looks like a slow death.

In different places and moments, different negation and insurrection, which although speak different languages, express common meanings, meet. It’s the meeting of all of us who discovered our true face when we put on a hood to attack the ugliness of this world. It’s the call of all of us who chose the sound of a bank’s window crumbling, the break and ignition of a molotov cocktail as it traverses the night as a glowing star, an explosion that blows up authority and silence of the social graveyard, a pistol arming while rising to shoot death carrying normality, as our music.

“Hoy en $hile, como en Grecia y España, se castiga la solidaridad, el amor y sus bellezas”
Nataly Casanova

Saludamos a lxs compañerxs Nataly Casanova, Juan Flores y Guillermo Durán, quienes desde el 14 de abril iniciaron una huelga de hambre exigiendo la liberación de Enrique Guzmán (detenido durante la tarde del
6 de abril y puesto bajo prisión preventiva), el cese de los hostigamientos contra sus cercanxs por parte de la miserable institución de Gendarmería y los brazos represivos del Estado, exigiendo también el cese del régimen de aislamiento al que ha sido sometida la compañera Nataly Casanova.

En estos meses de prisión preventiva lxs compañerxs han enfrentado con dignidad las maniobras represivas de los carceleros, sin retroceder un milímetro en sus convicciones de Guerra e ideas de libertad. Desde la calle solidarizamos incondicionalmente con ellxs, reconociéndolxs como compañerxs y como parte de nuestro mismo combate contra el Poder y toda Autoridad.

April 16th, 2015

“Biz burada, şu an herşeyin başladığı yerdeyiz.”

Proje ‘Phoenix’ Somut eylemin Atlantis’ine giden yolu işaret eden gizli kalmış haritanın açılmasıdır. Interzone’nun yanan şehirlerinin ötesinde varolmuş bilinmeyen ve kaybolmuş kıtadır. Kesintisiz otonom saldırının anarşist ilkeleri, Enternasyonalizm, Devrimci Dayanışma, eylem, diyalog, fikir ve örgütlü gayri-resmiyetle (enformel) yaratılmıştır. Dünya genelinde çeşitli doğrudan eylem gruplarının birbiri ardına gelen saldırılari tecritin sessizliğini kesintiye uğratıyor ve tekno endüstriyel sistemin hapishane toplumuna karşı karşı-saldırıya geçiyor.

….Phoenix kendi küllerinden doğdu ve korkakların sessizliğini alaya almaya, Prometheus ateşini ezeli isyancılara sunmaya geldi…..

…Sizinle konuşacak bir kelimemiz dahi yok çünkü herşeyi ateş açıklayacak…..

“Eski gruplar aktive oldu, Otoritenin ve uzantılarının kabuslarına hayat verme sözüyle yeni gruplar oluşturuldu,”

Video: PROYECTO FÉNIX – Σχέδιο Φοίνικας (traducido al español)

April 16th, 2015

PROYECTO FÉNIX – Σχέδιο Φοίνικας (traducido al español) from La Salute e in Voi on Vimeo.

PROYECTO FÉNIX
“El Regreso de la Conspiración de Células del Fuego desde las Cenizas”

El “Proyecto Fénix” nace como un gesto solidario dedicado a Alfredo Cospito y Nicola Gai, del “Núcleo Olga FAI/FRI” que asumió la responsabilidad del ataque armado contra Roberto Adinolfi, empresario nuclear de “Ansaldo Nucleare”, y además como una iniciativa internacional de ataque, comenzando en Grecia con la colocación de un artefacto explosivo contra la Directora de la Prisión de Korydallos.

La expansión de las acciones enmarcadas dentro del proyecto se desarrolla a lo largo y ancho de distintos territorios donde la práctica insurreccional pasa de la teoría a la acción, en absoluta consecuencia con las palabras de quienes se declaran en Guerra contra toda Autoridad y el Poder. A su vez, es un incandescente foco revolucionario que insta al diálogo y al debate entre distintos individuxs organizadxs de manera informal y difusa que dan forma al ataque permanente y minoritario.

La práctica del internacionalismo anárquico es uno de los cimientos del proyecto, es el momento donde el ataque autónomo encuentra un campo en común que une, nutre y potencia distintas realidades y tensiones, apuntando y calibrando en su alma la persiste confrontación contra lo existente.

CCF Escape Case: Update on repression in Greece and UK

April 15th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

With new reports by snitching cop journalists, an effort is being made to target comrades who come occasionally in contact with the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. In this case, they try to locate comrades from the UK who, as reported by the cops, publish an insurrectionary anarchist magazine there. They want to investigate what comrades from abroad traveled to Greece on specific dates. Also, they take into account the importance of the presence of FAI cells in the country and report that a group of Greek cops will travel there to inform their colleagues. This is a witch hunt which now targets comrades abroad as well. The case of the escape of the members of CCF becomes the perfect alibi, after several months of media propaganda, for cleaning up and hunting comrades which the cops already have in target.

Phoenix Project 2015: Attack against animal exploitation company by 'Arsonist Anarchist Attack – Fire and Consciousness Cell – FAI/IRF'(Chile)

April 15th, 2015

Phoenix Project 2015: Attack against animal exploitation company.
For human, animal and earth liberation (Chile)

Day by day, minute by minute, power is maintained and reproduced in the social relations of all those who accept this order based on the exercise of authority, domination and exploitation, and in all institutions, companies and machines that allow their normal development, never forgetting the voluntary action of power dignitaries and his accomplices: businessmen, politicians, police and citizen that defend power and submission, who strive for the status quo to run it and to be maintained.

When we decide to fight authority in all its forms and expressions, the struggle for total liberation makes sense, because it includes the various scenarios in which the power runs its domain. Our fight does not segment, it integrates, and so, to fight for total freedom implies also fight against State, capital, speciesism, hierarchies, specialization and varied expressions of authoritarianism.

And despite the efforts of the Chilean State to eliminate ideas and practices of revolt, direct attack by anarchic action groups still continues. Read the rest of this entry »

Anti-nuclear action camp, June 8th -21th (Finland)

April 14th, 2015

June 8th – 21st 2015

Energy company Fennovoima intends to start building a new nuclear power plant at the ecologically valuable Hanhikivi cape in Pyhäjoki, in Northern Ostrobothnia of Finland. Join us to stop the construction of this 100 000 year lasting problem, at its beginning!

Finnish energy policy is still stuck in the centralized production mode, and attempts to provide more nuclear power as a climate friendly solution, hiding the fact that nuclear power is an enemy of more sustainable and egalitarian forms of decentralized renewables. Decentralized and horizontal production of energy is just one part of the more equal society we are aiming for. The ecological crisis, and the social crisis in general, requires us to demolish the current model of economy and build alternatives where production provides for everyone’s needs.

A struggle against one irresponsible project is part of the global struggle for conditions of life itself. In recent years, socially and ecologically destructive projects have been stopped by the political power of the people joining forces to overturn political decisions. It is time to realize that also in Finland the acts of the people can be stronger than the words of politicians in making history. Read the rest of this entry »

Text of the hunger striker Spyros Mandylas (Greece)

April 14th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

STARTING…

Today, 12/04, I am on the 30th day of hunger strike. In these 30 days of hunger strike I’ve lost 13 pounds, sugar and pressure levels are at breaking point and I had some fainting episodes. The possibility, after a proposal from the doctors, of me being transferred to a hospital is open in the following days. So, I declare that my hunger strike will continue there too and I make it now clear that it will not accept serum and I do not allow doctors administer it to me even if I fall into a coma. The responsibility for my life is mine alone. The responsibility, however, for my imprisonment falls exclusively on the judges Lygas, Panagiotakopoulou, Stergoudi, Zografos and on my 39 co-defendants.

All this time I consciously chose not to speak my mind with a second personal text, since the demands of other hunger strikes that had started before me were not satisfied at all. So I only published some updates on the state of my health. Besides, anyone who wanted to know what was going on, was able to find out.

All this time my 39 co-defendants, rather than trying to contain their humiliation they have engaged in a cheap game of impressions, online comments and texts filled with lies, while others have chosen the tactic of the ostrich. Read the rest of this entry »

Words from 8 hunger strikers of the Network of Imprisoned Fighters (Greece)

April 14th, 2015

Below is an excerpt from an open letter released in the small hours of April 11th 2015 by hunger strikers of the Network of Imprisoned Fighters.

[…] When we started the hunger strike, we knew it would be an uphill struggle that would stretch us to our limits. And it’s true that some of us, after 40 days of tough struggle, run the risk of developing serious health problems. Nevertheless, we’re not going to concede any ground to anyone who’s taking advantage of the government’s strategy in their attempt to wear us down and annul the effectiveness of our struggle. Therefore, we reiterate that we continue the hunger strike until the fulfillment of our demands, despite the visible risks to our health. We owe it to all the comrades who’ve felt we are giving a joint struggle against the state of exception, but above all we owe it to our own selves and to the means of fight that we have chosen. We invite all comrades to reflect on the cruciality of the situation (four comrades have been on strike for more than 40 days) and turn Every Day of Hunger Strike into A Day of Action.

Every fight exhausts its potential only when we give up, and this fight has neither exhausted its potential nor completed its cycle.*

PS.1: Yesterday [April 10th], our comrade Tasos Theofilou stopped the strike as well. We walked together this far, and remain united in our common struggle. Tasos, we wish you a good recovery.

PS.2: We send our solidarity to the revolutionaries from Turkey [incarcerated in Greek prisons], who stand beside us in this battle. We wish Giorgos Inglessis [who suspended hunger strike] a good recovery.**

PS.3: Solidarity with the migrants who went on hunger strike at the concentration camp in Paranesti, near Drama.***

Until the End – Until Victory
Not One Step Back

Network of Imprisoned Fighters
_

Translation notes:

* A reference to the opinion expressed by imprisoned comrade Nikos Maziotis.

** According to our information so far, the prisoners who remain on hunger strike are eight anarchists of the Network of Imprisoned Fighters (DAK), Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, Antonis Stamboulos, Argyris Ntalios, Dimitris Politis, Fivos Harisis, Giorgos Karagiannidis, Grigoris Sarafoudis and Yannis Michailidis, as well as communists from Turkey & Kurdistan incarcerated in Greek prisons.

*** On April 10th, the No Lager Assembly in Thessaloniki, having established ties of solidarity and constant communication with the imprisoned migrants, reported that only one migrant is still on hunger strike in Paranesti camp, also noting that comrades from various collectives in Thessaloniki, Drama, Patras, Athens and other places supported and publicised the strike.

May 1, 2015: 'From Milan, capital of the crisis, to Europe' (Italy)

April 14th, 2015

YES MAYDAY | NOEXPO
INTERNATIONAL WORKERS’ DAY IN MILAN

After seven years of crisis the precarious pride has become rage and indignation against the burgeoning unemployment and the growth of poverty imposed by BCE & IMF to most of the population with austerity policies, particularly in Italy, Greece and the rest of the Latin Europe. Social slaughter, plunder of wealth and common goods, the end of the public city are the bases upon which governments build their response to the economic crisis.

The whole urban environment is the heart of many overwhelming social tensions. It is dominated by profit-based logics, soil consumption, the speculative spiral and the showcase city formula, in which the territorial branding is everything and inhabitants needs count as nothing, which leads to environmental exploitation, militarization of life, as we see in Val Susa, attack against our city back streets.

Italy deeply suffers precariousness, exploitation, repression. Corresponds to our need of places for political activism and criticism their evacuation and closure. Read the rest of this entry »

Video: Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Phoenix Project – An account of the FAI/IRF Project 'Phoenix' (Black International)

April 12th, 2015

English subtitled version of the film giving the account of the early part of the Phoenix Project, international project of sabotage and attack with over a dozen hits in a variety of different countries.

Dedicated to Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai, Olga Cell FAI/IRF, who took responsibility for the laming of CEO Roberto Adinolfi of Ansaldo Nucleare.

“We are here, where everything starts now.”

The Project of ‘Phoenix’ is the unfolding of a hidden map marking one of the routes to the Atlantis of practical theory. An unknown and lost continent that exists beyond the edges of the burning cities of the interzone. Created through action, dialogue and ideas and organised informally with anarchic principles of permanent autonomous attack, revolutionary solidarity and internationalism. A sequence of attacks by different radical direct action groups around the world, breaking the silence of isolation and striking back again against the prison societies of the techno-industrial system.

The imprisoned members of CCF are charged with instigation for the attacks, Spyros Mandylas and Andreas Tsavdaridis were arrested and charged for act #4 in the project, sending a parcel-bomb to the former commander of the anti-terrorist agency, Dimitris Xorianopoulos, whilst Christos Rodopoulos is reportedly accused of the mailing of the parcel bomb to Dimitris Mokkas, chief prosecutor in the CCF case, as act #6.

The Phoenix project is now renewed through the 2015 attacks in Chile, Czech Republic and Greece, with the comrades within the territory of Czech Republic initiating the campaign Let’s destroy repression. The story of the Phoenix continues to be written…

SOLIDARITY IS OUR WEAPON

NOT A MILLIMETER BACK

NINE MILLIMETERS TO THE COPS’ HEADS

Santiago: Two comrades arrested for arson attack on a bus ($hile)

April 12th, 2015

[Translated by Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras from Refractario]

On April 7, 2015, a bus was set on fire. Near the action, the bastards of police arrested comrades Natalia Collao (24) and Javier Pino (22).

When the journalistic carrion arrived to police station, both Natalia and Javier walked with head up. Javier shouted out loud: Down with the patriarchal and anthropocentric society!

On Friday 10, the judge decreed three months of preventive detention on charges of incendiary device installation in a public transport bus. Outside the Tribunal, comrades in solidarity stayed with banners and slogans.

Javier is now detained in Santiago 1 prison, and Natalia is in San Miguel prison.

All our solidarity with the comrades!

"Hallucination, intimidation and control" : Letter from Chilean comrade Francisco Solar about 'Operation Pandora' (Spain)

April 12th, 2015

From Pubblicacion Refractario:

‘Are we persecuted? Well, it’s logical that we are persecuted because we are a constant threat for who represents the system. In order not to be prosecuted we would have to adapt to their laws, comply with them, integrate into the system, let bureaucracy penetrate our spinal cord and become perfect traitors… but is that what we want? No. So our everyday actions have to be nourished with our creative imagination. Our strength is our ability to resist. We can fail but must never bow down to anyone.’ Buenaventura Durruti.

There can be many and varied explanations for the repressive blow of December 16th, just as the general and specific causes that intertwined to create a delirious net of power leading to the arrest of our friends and comrades are many.

Perhaps one of the general causes could be the introduction of the Law on Citizens Security, known as the ‘Gag law’; this, along with the exacerbation of the penal code, which has re-introduced life sentences, creates a pattern whereby the control exercised by power is more efficient and strengthened by constant paranoia. Sentences for attacks on authorities, public disorder and disobedience have been exacerbated; at the same time social protests like those of 15M [blockade of parliament] and of PAH (a group against housing taxes) are being punished. Progressives and social-democrats say that the State is ‘leaving less space for freedom’ and that ‘the struggle for rights is being criminalized’. As you can see, the turn of the screw by the repressive-judicial apparatus is striking citizens, that is to say those who struggle for more and better laws, more and better democracy, for more participation in the management of misery. Freedom and law is inconsistent with one another. As anarchists we are aware that the more rights are granted the stronger the State becomes and as a consequence our submission grows. Not because it will cease to be such with a subtle, more democratic oppression, but quite the opposite it becomes more natural and firm in its being invisible. Read the rest of this entry »
