6 December 2008, 15 years old Alexis Grigoropoulos is shot point blank by cops in the neighborhood of Exarchia in Athens. Alexis falls from the bullet of state murderers and a hurricane of rage rises. This was no accident; it was a targeted murder in the heart of a neighborhood that is, as much historically as in the present, a hub for the oppressed to organize themselves into the resistance movement. The message was clear, to terrorise the resistance, to assert state totalitarian control, to stifle the brewing insurrection against a decrepit system of exploitation and oppression. The story of Alexis is the story of thousands of fighters shot, tortured and disappeared by the armed guards of the state around the world.
In the hours, days and weeks that followed the murder of Alexis myriads of people, who saw in the killing of Alexis their own sufferings in this system, took to the streets around the world. The wave of solidarity broke the isolation and alienation of the oppressed and awakened once again the global vision for a world without exploitation from authority. This history, our history is not a collection of dead symbols. It is our storming ground for the ongoing struggle against the slavery of humanity by capitalist exploiters, their state aparatus and their armies. (more…)
For Anarchist Comrade Santiago Maldonado, Let’s Make the Police and the State Disappear! (Chile, Argentina)
Saturday, September 30th, 2017
This September 1st marked one month since the disappearance of the anarchist comrade Santiago Maldonado at the hands of the police of the National Gendarmerie of Argentina. This took place within the context of the repression against a demonstration that included road blocks made by the Mapuche community Pu Lof in Resistance at Cashamen, in the Argentine province of Chubut.
While the anarchic agitation spread beyond borders, comrades in Argentina took to the streets to spread acts of revolt via propaganda and direct action. With arson attacks against the police, barricades and Molotov cocktails against government buildings, our comrades unleashed their rage at a situation that is as sad as it is real: the bastards have arrested and disappeared an anarchist comrade.
Because Santiago is an anarchist, and not just a young musician and artist, something the press and leftists conveniently leave out, in denouncing the state repression we make it clear that denial and silencing of the comrade’s political identity is another form of disappearance, erasing from the narrative the true motivations of his solidarity presence in the Mapuche community where he was at the time of his arrest. 
We have no advice for our comrades in Argentina, we believe in them and their conviction and autonomy to continue transforming their pain into rage, spreading chaos against the world of authority, and deepening and expanding affinities in concrete experiences of confrontation and agitation. (more…)

On September 16th, the day of anti-fascist protests in Keratsini and Athens, for the 4 years since the murder of Pavlos Fyssas by neonazis of the Golden Dawn, 16 year old K.B. is arrested in Exarchia. During his arrest and transportation to GADA (central police hq of Athens), K.B. is beaten and tortured by riot cops resulting in his severe injury.
Although this incident is publicized on social networks and counter-information websites, on the same day false information is leaked concerning the health of K.B. as well as the conditions of his care in the intensive care unit of KAT hospital.
In an attempt to cover-up a very serious incident during an especially explosive juncture, another attempt is coordinated to downplay this incident.
Stray information on the same day say that the kid’s situation has stabilized, that he has escaped danger, as well as that the detention protocol in the hospital was upheld.
The reality however is far from that, and goes as such: K.B. right now is being hospitalized in an induced coma, in intensive care of KAT hospital. His relatives have had no hopeful news (till now) about his health and the information they have been receiving is extremely incomplete. It simultaneously became known after a
syndicalist doctor of that hospital denounced it, that the police had a cop INSIDE the intensive care unit which is obviously forbidden. Doctors cannot bring him out of the coma he is in right now because of his situation and do not know when he will come out of it. His injuries are severe, he had an epileptic episode as well as loss of consciousness.
Also, today he had an operation and had metal rods placed in both of his legs.
Not trusting the state apparatus who only care about their self-preservation in every way, we call on anyone who knows anything concerning the arrest and transfer of 16 year-old, to email: firstname.lastname@example.org in order for us to investigate what has happened exactly.
It is a matter of survival of the authoritarians to maintain the illusion of social normality in any way.
On our side, we ought to not give even a bit of space to those who attempt to silence and punish whoever resists.
Our solidarity is a given but also factual and we call for a gathering at KAT hospital on Wednesday September 20th*.
NO ONE ALONE IN THE HANDS OF THE STATE
EVERYONE TO THE STREETS
EVERYONE TO THE BARRICADES
Solidarity assembly to K.B.
*next assembly is on September 22nd at 7pm at the Polytechnic in Athens.

POR EL COMPAÑERO ANARQUISTA SANTIAGO MALDONADO
¡HAGAMOS DESAPARECER A LA POLICÍA Y AL ESTADO!
Este 01 septiembre se cumplió ya un mes desde la detención y desaparición del compañero anarquista Maldonado, a manos de la policía de la Gendarmería Nacional de Argentina en el contexto de la represión de una manifestación que incluyó cortes de ruta realizada por la comunidad mapuche Pu Lof en Resistencia de Cushamen,en la provincia argentina del Chubut.
Mientras la agitación anárquica se extiende más allá de las fronteras, compañerxs en Argentina se vuelcan a las calles a propagar actos de revuelta a través de la propaganda y la acción directa. Con ataques incendiarios a la policía, barricadas y cócteles molotov contra edificios estatales, nuestrxs hermanxs desatan la rabia ante una situación tan triste como real: los bastardos han detenido y hecho desaparecer a un compañero anarquista.
Porque Santiago es un anárquico, y no solo un joven músico y artesano como lo muestra convenientemente la prensa y los izquierdistas que denuncian la represión estatal, dejamos claro que la negación y el silencio sobre la identidad política del compañero es otra forma de hacerlo desaparecer, borrando del relato de los hechos las verdaderas motivaciones de su presencia solidaria en la comunidad mapuche en resistencia donde se encontraba al momento de su detención.

Bristol Anarchist Chases Away Counter-Terror Police
Today at Stansted Airport, plainclothes police officers pulled aside a travelling anarchist (Tim from Bristol) and seemingly sought to coerce him into becoming an informant with a combination of intimidation, veiled threats, and offers of free alcohol. But when he started recording the officers on his mp3 player they quickly terminated the exchange and made a sharp exit.
He believes he was targeted by counter terror police because of his Anarchism, stating: “Anarchism is about ordinary people standing up to the rich and powerful – exactly what the police are there to prevent. These people claim to be protecting us, but they spend most of their time blacklisting trade unionists, spying on activists and harassing ethnic minorities.”
Here’s his full account of what happened today:
“As I was leaving the EU e-passport gate about 1pm today, I was approached by a man who came out from behind the desk to the left. He was a similar height to me, with short light brown hair/beard, and a light northern English accent. He said “Hi Tim, I’d like to have a word with you. I think you know what this is about”. I got my phone out and called a friend as soon as he started speaking. I told him I had a phone call which I needed to take. A man who had approached in the mean-time from the right, wearing a grey suit-jacket, asked me to turn my phone off. I repeated that I had to take the call. When my friend picked up I asked them to call my solicitor. (more…)

At dawn on October 29, 2015, anonymous hands placed an explosive device in the 12° Comisaria de San Miguel. The device consisted of a fire extinguisher filled with black powder and it would have been placed around 2am. The bomb was placed near the intersections of Gran Avenida with Alvarez Toledo, close to the court of appeals in San Miguel and the Fiscalía Sur [Prosecutors of the Southern district], precisely at the gate of the police barracks.
Police bastards who were on duty at the police station noticed a suspicious bag in the police station perimeter, activating all security protocol.
To the place came the GOPE [Grupo de Operaciones Policiales Especiales / Police Special Operations Group] who managed to remove the device without it detonating, then they took it to their offices in Cerrillos to analyze it. Finally Renato Avellao, that bastard Colonel of this putrid institution stated: “There are security cameras throughout the environment of the barracks and it is through these images we will detect which person left the bag with the extinguisher on the side of the unit. It was in the hours of the morning.”

On 28th August (Friday), over a dozen police with automatic weapons and K-9 unit attacked Rumah Api (social center/house project in Kuala Lumpur) during a concert on that night. The police raided the house project and raid everybody during the concert and also trashed the living space of people who live there without any warrant or solid reason for the raid.
We all believe the raid were conducted due to the connection of Bersih 4 Rally which happen on the next days (29 and 30th) which is totally insane since the organizer of the concert, participants, and Rumah Api have little interest to join or even support the rally, due to our political stance on the issue of election and voting system.
The state use Rumah Api as the scapegoat of recent event of attack on banks and multinational corporations in KL for the past 2 years. So far, they found nothing to link us with that events. The police seize all the musical equipment at the concert hall, seize 2 computers of people who live there, one smart phone, artwork, and books belonging to people who live there. The police said they search the building for any weapons or explosives that can link us to terrorism. (more…)

From Bristol Defendant Solidarity:
Police in the UK are allowed to question anyone entering/leaving the country about “terrorism” – without the right to silence. We have spoken to a number of anarchists who have been questioned under these powers, known as “Schedule 7″. Because of a lack of information on the law, most of those stopped have given more information than they had to. This includes people from outside of the UK who have not even heard of “Schedule 7″ before. For this reason, we strongly recommend any anarchists travelling to/from the UK read our briefing beforehand – http://bristolabc.wordpress.com/defendant-solidarity/resources-and-advice/schedule-7/.
If you have been questioned under “Schedule 7″, please contact the Network for Police Monitoring, so they can keep track of how the police are using this power. Website: http://netpol.org; Email: info (at) netpol.org

Thousands of protesters laid siege to Downing Street and marched on the Conservatives’ campaign HQ and Parliament, causing havoc which ranged across central London in a disruptive demo which saw at least 17 people arrested and a number of police injured in clashes. A small black bloc was active on the frontlines attacking police and defending the demo from police attacks. Eventually the demo was kettled and the crowd processed. There was a simultaneous event in Cardiff, Wales, and an anti-fascist demo in Walthamstow against the English Defence League, fascist-nationalist group.

Warsaw: Demo against police violence
A spontaneous demonstration against police violence took place in Warsaw, Poland, on 19th of March. Protest was direct reaction to events that took place few days earlier in Legionowo, Warsaw suburb: police organised hunt for marihuana users. During the arrest, one of the detainees was basically suffocated by a cop, who was trying to stop him from swallowing a bag of pot.
Death of the detainee caused a few days of intense protest- demo on 19th March was first held in Warsaw. It was a reaction against the police statement, full of lies and manipulations, which blames whole situation on the murdered detainee. This secondary victimization and police attempt to cover-up the whole case was the direct impulse to organise protest in the capital. Protest started in front of Prosecutors Office on Brudnowska street, where going to police station was decided. Police was present from the beginning, and after allowing demonstrators to pass almost 2 km decided to start confrontation: all of the protesters were surrounded, then police started checking IDs of the majority of the protesters. Some people were detained and brought to various police stations. Police called all checked protesters to testify in the following days, as suspected of committing the felony – “participating in illegal assembly”. (more…)

On Wednesday, March 11th, the District Attorney’s office pushed in court for Dante Cano to be hit with a felony charge for vandalism. The one police officer in court claimed that after hearing a window being hit, he saw a person in black running in a sea of other people in black. Several moments later, Dante was in police custody, despite no evidence actually linking him to the crime. We are asking people to
please help bail Dante out of jail, which will increase his changes of defending himself in court. We also call on everyone to continue to support the Ferguson 3, youths arrested during the first night of the rebellion in the Bay Area. (more…)

6pm @Cardiff Central Police Station on the 24th of March 2015
It has been over five years since we learned that Mark “Marco” Jacobs was not just another anarchist in the south Wales activist scene, but was actually an undercover police officer.
Since then a number of people who were directly effected by his use of sexual relations as an infiltration tactic have taken legal action to attempt to hold the system to account.
Sickeningly South Wales Police and the Metropolitan Police have maintained a “Neither Confirm Nor Deny” defence of all aspects of Officer Jacobs deployment. (more…)

Berkin Elvan was a 15-year-old Turkish boy who was hit in the head by a tear-gas canister fired by a police officer in Istanbul, while the boy was out to buy bread for his family during the June 2013 Gezi park protests in Turkey. He died on March 11, 2014. Widespread demonstrations erupted following Berkin’s death. Gezi park remains heavily monitored by secret police.
We received the following report from DAF of an action taken to commemorate Berkin. In the video you can see and hear small explosives and fireworks being used against the police and to create a rupture in the city. Here is the communique we received:
DAF action for Berkin Elvan
One year ago, murderous police killed our brother Berkin Elvan who was 15 years old. DAF was on the streets in the first year of his murder. We are not afraid of the murderers. We will keep on fighting. Murderous Police, Terrorist State will pay for these massacres.
Berkin is here, We are here!
On the first anniversary of the death of Berkin Elvan, the comrades from LAF (High School Anarchist Action) also opened a banner on the stairs of Gezi Park. On it was written the slogan “Berkin is here”. They poured red paint on the stairs to the Gezi Park, shouting “If the government is thirsty for blood, then take it.” Our 8 comrades were then assaulted, abused and taken into custody, handcuffed from the back.
