June 11th, 2016

Angela Murilla, a judge at the Audiencia Nacional, already notorious for her recent involvement in the 12-year sentencing against Francisco and Monica, after trying to inflict a full sentence against her, decided to order the extradition to Germany of the comrade arrested on 13th April accused of participating in the expropriation of a bank in Germany.
German prosecutors accused the comrade of having carried out a string of expropriations against banks. In 10 days it will be known whether the extradition order is enforced.

Letter from anarchist prisoner Grigoris Tsironis for June 11th (Greece)

June 11th, 2016

A greeting for the international day of solidarity and action for the anarchist prisoners throughout the world

An international day when all prisoners from all corners of the earth, all those who are experiencing the obligatory status of incarceration in the penal prison camps of democracy, those who are being deprived of the most valuable good of freedom, are uniting their voices, their thoughts and feelings, in order to send a signal among them that no one is alone.

Despite the hundreds of kilometers that are separating us, despite that we don’t know each other, despite of all our differences, there is something that surpasses borders and achieves the elimination of all distances, something that can’t be imprisoned, that escapes out of the walls that loom up around us, something that is priceless within the hearts of those who feel it, express it, or receive it.

Message from the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire / FAI-IRF for June 11th (Greece)

June 11th, 2016

“For June 11th, international day of solidarity and action for the anarchist prisoners throughout the world”

Prison has the terrifying ability to leave its own indelible imprints on the bodies and minds of its residents.

Imprints of sorrow, frustration, violence, asphyxia, enforcement. Doors that keep locking and unlocking everyday at the same time with exactly the same awful sound in a monotonous rhythm of a murderous routine that drips its poison of immobility and vanity slowly and painfully.

A brief description about the distillation of sepsis that is being produced by incarceration is enough to become understandable of the hate we feel towards prisons.

That’s why every time a prison break succeeds, every time that a penal officer is being paid an uninvited visit, every time that a prison director or police sergeant pays the price of his despicable choices, our hearts fill with a unique feeling of enjoyment and pleasure. Because revenge for the captivity can’t help but to find its incarnation over the constant assaults against the prison’s representatives. Read the rest of this entry »

A contribution to June 11th from anarchist prisoner Nikos Romanos (Greece)

June 11th, 2016

“A contribution to the International Day of Solidarity with Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners”

Many things have been stated about the value of solidarity, and everything has its importance because it contributes to the attempt of giving meaning to a sense that constitutes a vital ingredient for our plans and actions. I will try to state in my own way an existential aspect of solidarity obviously through my own experiences. Solidarity means first of all emotions. Beautiful, wild, but most of all authentic emotions. Emotions that constitute the driving force for the growth of anarchist dynamics, which are liberating and beloved sounds and senses in the city, by yelling slogans, building barricades and by throwing blazing bottles that target the servants of authority. Solidarity doesn’t mean identification, but complicity with everyone that chose to engrave liberating routes in the map of the anarchist insurrection. It’s a relationship and within this relationship experiences are being developed and common desires are being produced for the destruction of this world, not in a vague future, but first of all within ourselves and then around us. Destruction to the degenerated relationships that this world is producing, in its depictions, in its symbols, in its officials and in its loyal servants. Read the rest of this entry »

Bristol, Britain’s Flagship ‘Smart City’ (UK)

June 9th, 2016

“We’re creating an environment where in a year or two, not five, the whole world will look at Bristol for the future of smart cities.”
– Dimitra Simeonidou, High Performance Networks Lab, Bristol University

The city of Bristol, south west U.K., has begun a multi-million pound experiment to create the ‘smart-city’ of the future, which would cement Bristol as a global leader in the telecommunications world. The wider area of Avon (mainly the ‘post-industrial’ estates of Bristol and Bath) already hosts the largest digital technology sector in the British Isles outside of London, and receives funding from the government as such.

City authorities and allied technological entrepreneurs are working to kit out Bristol with a city-wide ‘digital fabric’ of the very latest in sensor and connectivity technology, to make it the world’s first open ‘programmable city’. A high-speed fibre-optic network (making use of disused cable ducting owned by the council) is being combined with a new ‘city operating system’ that will power an experimental network. In the coming spring of 2016, 1,500 sensor-equipped lampposts are being launched around the city; the vast majority of Bristol will be covered in a Radio Frequency (RF) mesh. This is predicted to revolutionise the way that emergency response, traffic management and other municipal services are handled, and track certain vehicle locations, with eventual alleged trickle-down ‘benefits’ such as informing residents of parking spaces and air pollution (ahem, from those parking spaces) in an increasingly mechanised and technified environment.

Parcel bomb sent to the judge who jailed Evi Statiri (Greece)

June 9th, 2016

According to information that appeared in the Greek press, on Thursday June 2nd a parcel bomb was sent to the judge Isadora Poga, who in 2015 rejected the release of Evi Statiri, the wife of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire comrade Gerasimos Tsakalos.

The device contained metal tubes filled with explosives of an unknown origin, screws and pieces of razor blades set to activate via an electrical mechanism, all inserted inside a hollowed-out book that was shipped inside a cardboard box.

According to the Greek press, which parrots the information provided by the police, the judge noticed something suspicious about the parcel and decided to notify the police who confirmed that it was an explosive parcel with the capacity to kill the judge. Read the rest of this entry »

Athens: Triple arson attack in the city centre by FAI/FRI (Greece)

June 9th, 2016

The last days of May, in the centre of Athens, we torched two ATMs of Alpha Bank, as well as an excavator used for the metro line extension in the area of Exarchia.

We perceive the State’s effort to upgrade the control and disciplining mechanism as a way of establishing a consumerist and peaceful normalcy everywhere, and attacking spaces that diffuse anarchist theorisations and practices – which is why we choose to attack every form of Power with all available means.

We also carried out this action in memory of our comrade Mauricio Morales, who was killed on May 22nd 2009; and in solidarity with our incarcerated comrades.

ALL OUR FALLEN COMRADES COME ALIVE
THROUGH THE FLAMES OF INSURGENCY
GUERRILLA GREETINGS TO THE CCF COMRADES
GALLOWS FOR THE JUDGES, BULLETS FOR THE COPS

Arson of Hellenic Post vehicles in the suburb of Aghioi Anargyroi (Greece)

June 9th, 2016

At a time when human zombies nourish their survival with social norms and superficial appearances driven by the legitimacy of Power, essentially legitimising the present miserable life, the conflict with the latter automatically marks an opening up of a field of dialectic to the feelings of the living. Boredom knocks on the door of all of us, and we try to transmute it into its denial. We are exactly there where the wait for a mass uprising has become trite, where the appetite for destruction of the rotten world is identical to our pleasure.

In the early hours of May 27th 2016, we burned two vehicles of the Hellenic Post (ELTA) in Aghioi Anargyroi.

With this action we send a minimum signal of strength to CCF, who is on trial for the escape plan and other cases, and to the rest of the anarchists implicated in these cases as well.

Let’s get more dangerous for Power.

A few days ago the prosecutor V. Marsioni punished CCF comrade Giorgos Nikolopoulos with one year of disciplinary measures after ‘finding’ prohibited items during raids and searches of comrade’s cells.

The same prosecutor also punished CCF comrades Michalis Nikolopoulos and Panagiotis Argyrou.

A communiqué by Heriberto Salazar Gang of Saboteurs – FAI/FRI (Chile)

June 9th, 2016

We are far from taking a strong defence of any individual who presents him/herself as enemy of the State and of all forms of dominion (over humans, animals and nature). We see how – and many imprisoned and not imprisoned comrades are right in this – not everyone can be defined a comrade or relations be forged with them.

In particular we want to generate a debate on what’s happening with the groups of action that deny anarchy is political objective and everyday struggle. These are so-called eco-extremists who shout coolly ‘death to anarchy’ thus disowning their own origins and formation, the idea following which they used to take nourishment from the warriors of the urban guerrilla of the past and the present, and then they went on to emphasize certain aspects that have always been within anarchy and its struggle for the liberation of humans, our brothers the animals and the earth.

Being extraneous to the constant tension we want to keep and to our struggle to make anarchy alive, a certain self-proclaimed eco-extremist sector is throwing away the libertarian ideal that manifests itself in the insurrectional struggle.

A certain small group linked to the imaginary category of ‘symbolic populations’ and musical/countercultural university areas (they disown university but they attend it… and they study the subjects they hate so much), despise the human animal and therefore see the enemy everywhere.

Update on the situation of anarchist Gabriel Pombo da Silva (Spain)

June 9th, 2016

“Let’s not allow the State to keep rebels in its clutches!”

There seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel for comrade Gabriel Pombo da Silva who has spent more than 30 years in Spanish and German prison cells.

He was extradited from Germany [to Spain] to serve a sentence of 3 years and 7 months thanks to a European detention order issued by the court of Albacete, which he has just completed following the application of a judicial decree. The same court in Albacete therefore issued an order for his immediate release on May 17, and comrades went to the prison to meet him on the outside over the days that followed. In vain, however, as he is still behind bars.

The management of the prison where he now finds himself (Prison La Moraleja in Dueñas, province of Palencia) and various judicial bodies such as the court of Girona lost no time in submitting a number dubious procedures to prevent Gabriel’s release. These procedures are aimed at prolonging his imprisonment indefinitely, despite the fact that he has several appeals in course. Read the rest of this entry »

Caravan to NoBorder-Camp in Thessaloniki (Greece)

June 9th, 2016

Alf is going to Thessaloniki in Greece. There the NoBorder-Camp is going to take place from 15th to 24nd of July and is a self-organized camp, which „aims to realize horizontal and direct-democratic structures and procedures.“ The camp announces the fight against all the oppressive and hierarchic settings. It raises the claim to „create new, steady, self-organized structures for support and solidarity to refugees and link together the already existing ones.“

Our plan is to start at the 1st of July in Germany. But we don’t want to travel to Greece alone with the Bus Alf, we want to go in a caravan.

During the journey Alf is not going to be the center of the caravan and cannot fend for the catering. In fact we want to plan and drive together with you in a kempt DIY-manner. That means, that Alf Partout on the one hand and the caravan on the other hand lives on people taking the initiative. We don’t want principals.

We’re going to try organizing free places in carts for people that want to come without car, together. Read the rest of this entry »

June 11 statement by Jeremy Hammond (USA)

June 9th, 2016

Revolutionary greetings on this June 11! Solidarity with all Earth warriors and anarchists behind bars!

We are up against a system of power and profit, a system which is destroying the planet and forcing the people into poverty and imprisonment. Many of us who have fought back found ourselves in the crosshairs of an extensive counter-intelligence apparatus who use trumped-up “terrorism” charges and entrapment by informants to put us in prison for years. There are many lessons from each case to consider before engaging in future work, but it is most important that we do not let the seemingly overwhelming forces of domination intimidate us into inaction and passivity.

Even those of us doing time, you know we stay bucking the system, and it brings us strength and inspiration to hear about your work in the streets, to hear about ongoing campaigns – such as the fight to stop the Bureau of Prisons from building a new maximum security federal prison in Letcher County, Kentucky, in the middle of a mountaintop removal coal processing area. This is a winnable opportunity highlighting the connections between the prison industrial complex and the exploitation of the Earth by profiteering capitalists.

But to succeed, we must consider the full range of tactics available. Everything from organizing conferences and sending books to prisoners, from lawsuits to protest marches, to hacking websites and sabotaging infrastructure. Every act of defiance counts, even if we do not immediately see the results of our efforts, because even small ripples can make big waves. Local actions have global consequences. We are spreading seeds of revolution, growing wild and free. Until we can overgrow and overthrow this system once and for all!

For the rev!
Jeremy

Update from the fast-tracked trial of CCF – 02/06 (Greece)

June 7th, 2016

Today the presiding judge A. Yfanti gave new meaning to the concept of fast-tracking proceedings. Within 2.5 hours thousands of pages of evidence documents were ‘read’. In normal proceedings such documents would be read to the court word for word as they are supposedly part of the evidence for the hearing.

Following the command of the appeal court administration the Golden Dawn trial was suspended so presiding judge A. Yfanti could ‘finish’ the CCF trial, proving once again that the sentences were already ordered before the trial had even begun.

Today, 02/06 all of the witnesses were heard in record time and often with answers dictated from police headquarters. Then, despite a request for an interruption so that the CCF could acquaint themselves with the evidence, the judge continued the process unabated. Read the rest of this entry »
