Network of Revolutionary Cells: ‘Call to Fight: Sabotage the activities of those bastards!’ (Czech Republic)

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

We see that the repressive campaign on the anarchist movement does not cease. Examples are enough: The operation Fénix case in the Czech Republic, the case of the Warsaw Three, charges of bank robbery in Aachen, courts with rebels against the G20 summit in Hamburg and other cases.

Cops, judges, prosecutors, mass-media. They are haunted, imprisoned, robbed, manipulated. This is a challenge to all Revolutionary cells and other groups and individuals. Do sabotages the activities of those bastards. Turn them into terrain, technology and structures. Organize resistance. Support the fugitive and their loved ones.

What destroys us will stop by fighting.

The goal is clear = Freedom, justice, anarcho-communism.

NoG20 – Cops Raided Apartments and Store – Demo to Billwerder Prison on October 1 (Germany)

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

On Wednesday more than 100 cops raided 14 apartments and a store in Hamburg and the German state of Schleswig-Holstein. The cops confiscated 7 iPhones during the raids. On October 1 there will be a demonstration to Billwerder prison in Hamburg. Many of the NoG20 prisoners are imprisoned in Billwerder. We also publish some of the addresses of NoG20 prisoners and the next trial dates. Earlier today NoG20 prisoner Orazio was released.

The cops confiscated 7 iPhones during the raids. The cops claim the iPhones were stolen as a mobile phone store was looted during the NoG20 protests in Hamburg on July 7. In a press conference the cops yesterday claimed that they are investigating 2000 people, but expect that this number will rise to 3000. Given the fact that yesterdays raids were based on located mobile phones that were allegedly stolen in a mobile phone store during the NoG20 protests, its possible that the 180 men/women strong special investigation squad “Black Bloc” actually don’t seem to have that much. But activists should be aware that the cops are also investigating video material from public transport companies and that they use face recognition software to identify people. The 180 men/women strong task force will continue to investigate in order to repress as much people as possible, so stay alert. (more…)

Upcoming trial of imprisoned anarchist comrade Riccardo in Hamburg (Germany)

Monday, September 25th, 2017

The trial that will see Riccardo accused will be held on 5 October at 9.00 at the court of Altona – Hamburg (Max Bauer Allee 91.). It will be open but we do not yet know whether the judgment will be on the same day or will slip to another date. It depends on the hearing (in many cases they have been judged in a single day also because the defendants have confessed).

He will be judged by the second degree court that has sentences from two years upwards (in Germany the courts are divided into 3 levels based on the requested sentence, it is not a special court). The formal charges are: breach of the peace, attack by assault and resistance.

Regarding mail censorship, there have not been any systematic blocks but some letters are blocked (so far they are 3, spread over time: a postcard, a letter, an envelope containing newspapers from Hamburg).

Then envelopes containing counter-informative material and brochures were blocked.

Address:

Riccardo Lupano
Jva Billwerder
Dweerlandweg 100
22113 Hamburg

New Counter-Info – Tormentas de Fogo

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

New counter-information site ‘Tormentas de Fogo‘, translating news and articles from Spanish, Portuguese and English:

Letter from anarchist prisoner Marcelo Villarroel Sepúlveda – Chile.

“DESTROY ARGENTINA!”.

COMUNICADO PARA DIFUSÃO DE “BEM-VINDO AO INFERNO: TEXTOS SOBRE A INSURREIÇÃO CONTRA A CÚPULA DO G20 HAMBURGO, 2017”

Essa publicação reúne algumas ofensivas anárquicas dentro e fora das cadeias, contra a desprezível reunião dos vinte chefes de estado mais poderosos do mundo.

Algumas palavras de provocação… Não tão somente…

A energia caótica mantém a chama da anarquia queimando. As ações transcritas nessas linhas são recebidas por nós calorosamente. Todavia estas práticas não se encerram apenas na nossa memória, mas encontram solo fértil em nossas mentes e corações. Portanto não se trata de contemplar o passado, mas vivê-lo intensamente durante o presente.

Uma cronologia para continuar…

A visão transmitida é bastante nítida: nós não esperaremos pela próxima cúpula. Essa publicação celebra a rebelião, procurando manter pulsante a paixão demolidora pela total liberdade.

Da leitura… Até a cumplicidade…

‘About the holidays in Hamburg’: selfies, disorders and the tyranny of images (Germany)

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

A month ago in Hamburg, Germany, a G20 summit was beginning, and with it mass protests against it, with demands for a more ‘human’ running of capitalism, up to the total destruction of the system in order to build a more ethical world where there would be a place and respect for all, where there would be no repression or hierarchy, where the earth would be protected and the insatiable thirst for empty benefits on which this society is based would disappear from our values and life goals.

You can read about what happened during the 3 days of the summit and the demonstrations in many websites, including this blog, if you look in the corresponding posts (starting from the month of July, for those who are curious); and as I couldn’t go to Hamburg (and I’m sorry about that) for reasons that are irrelevant here, I won’t comment on what happened or go into detail. The comrades who were there have talked about that and continue to do so.

I’d like to talk about a particular aspect of those demonstrations, which I think occurs too often in this kind of context, and which seems a serious problem, at least to me, and one that annoys me. It’s what is known as the ‘tyranny of the image’. (more…)

Hamburg G20 prisoners soli-demo in Amsterdam (Germany, Netherlands)

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

From Amsterdam to Hamburg. On Thursday 31st August a solidarity demo took place in Amsterdam. It was not only against the G20 but also against the recent censorship of Indymedia in Germany. We hope you can spread the news amongst our friends.

A 21-year old person from Amsterdam has been convicted to two year and seven months in prison. He is accused of having thrown two empty beer bottles at the police after hundreds of riot police blocked and attacked the “Welcome to Hell” demonstration on the evening before the G20 summit in Hamburg last July (see here: https://vimeo.com/224524911).

Hamburg: Letter from an imprisoned comrade in Billwerder Prison (Germany)

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

HAMBURG SUMMER 2017: I AM THERE, I STAY THERE!

It’s been almost a month and a half since I was imprisoned during the twelfth G20 summit in Hamburg, in a city that was besieged and taken in hostage by the security forces, but which also saw an important local and popular protest.

Tens of thousands, if not more, flocking from all over Europe, and even beyond, converged, met, organised, debated and demonstrated together for several days in a great surge of solidarity. At all times aware of the possibility of suffering the violence and the repression of the police. A huge prefab police court had been built for the occasion, to punish any dissent against this international summit as quickly as possible.

My arrest, like that of many comrades, is based only on the sacred word of the police, of a brigade sent to infiltrate, observe and follow their “prey” (during forty-five minutes in my case, for a supposed throwing of a projectile…). Once isolated, they sent colleagues to arrest them, intervening quickly and violently, and leaving no loop-holes. (more…)

‘An answer to the call for solidarity to the ones held in custody in Hamburg’ by Panagiotis Argyrou, imprisoned member of CCF/FAI-IRF (Greece)

Tuesday, August 1st, 2017

‘Eine Antwort auf den Aufruf zur Solidarität mit den Gefangenen in Hamburg’ von Panagiotis Argyrou, inhaftiertes Mitglied der Verschwörung der Feuerzellen /FAI-IRF [de]

A response to the call for solidarity to the ones held in custody in Hamburg

During the exile of captivity few are the things that can make you smile, offer a warm thought or a pleasant feeling. I can, however, say with some certainty that these days of July when Hamburg surrendered to the chaos of riots during the G20 summit, the clashes with the police, the burning barricades, the store looting, the vandalisms and burnings of sovereignty targets, my thoughts were boosted, a great deal of “thank you-s” as well as vivid emotions overwhelmed me, and a smile lit up my face.

I’ll be honest, however. Although from an early stage a large part of insurrectionary anarchism aspired at setting a high target, something that had become clear already since the call for a militant campaign of informal organization months before the summit; and although there was a large number of public texts and claims of responsibility responding to this call (some comrades were kind enough to even mention the heritage of Black December), I wasn’t that sure that the days in question would indeed involve such great momentum. And this due to the fact that the difficulties entailed weren’t unknown to me—the adversities and the challenges that would have to be confronted by the people who would want to organize and accomplish such an ambitious riot plan.
