Update about the week-long Anti-Prison event in Bure (France)

February 20th, 2020

The anti-prison week is in less than a month! It will happen from 2 to 8 March 2020 in the old train station of Luméville, close to Bure, place of a struggle against a project of a center for burying nuclear waste. The idea is to take time to meet, between people and groups from different countries, have formal and informal times of discussions, workshops, movie screenings, readings. You can come to the week with your own proposals, with or without telling us in advance. Zine distros are also very welcome.

We received criticisms regarding the lack of topics related to racism in prison and state racism in the program of the week, considering the key role that racism play in penitentiary systems. We would like to make more space for these topics, so if you think you have something to contribute on these topics, please contact us.

Program

We are currently contacting the groups that will take part in the week to know when each workshop or discussion will happen. This section will be updated regularly between now and the beginning of the week.

Monday

An update on the struggle in Bure, the Cigéo project, the events of the last few years. More info about specific presentations and workshops soon. Read the rest of this entry »

USA: Accused ELF / ALF Militant Joseph Dibee Could Do With Some Solidarity

February 19th, 2020

Joseph Dibee was arrested in August 2018 after more than a decade on the run. He is accused of being part of a group that organized arson attacks against earth destroying and animal murdering enterprises. He is accused, for example, of taking part in the arson against the Wild Horse Meat Slaughterhouse in Oregon that was completely destroyed by fire and never reopened.

He has been locked up since his capture even though he has not had a trial yet. In January, Joseph was attacked by a “white-power” piece of shit. His jaw was shattered to bits and he suffered multiple skull fractures. His mouth is wired shut. He is stable, but needless to say he went through a very scary and terrible experience.

This comes as no surprise since the FBI has insisted on plastering the media with his full name (Joseph Mahmoud Dibee) alongside the word “Terrorist”. They have paved the way for Joseph to be continuously attacked in prison because of this. They are utilizing any tool (in this case, the spread of anti-Muslim and neo-nazi philosophy) to make Joseph suffer as much as possible.

His lawyer has insisted to the judge over and over that Joseph is not a risk to society and that he has changed his life around, helping build solar and thermal systems in Syria and working as a teacher whilst on the run. The judge did not care and decided to keep Joseph locked up waiting for trial. We will say it again, he has not even been found guilty and he is supposed to pay the price.

Joseph could do with letters of support and love. Nobody should be writing anything related to direct action or to his case, but sending letters explaining how the day has been might be a good start to make him feel better.

Here is the address to send letters:

Joseph Dibee #101799,
Inverness Jail, 11540 N.E.
Inverness Drive,
Portland, OR 97220
USA

Remember that “Support the ALF” isn’t just a fucking t-shirt!

EN/ES – Request for financial support for the legal defense of Gabriel Pombo Da Silva (Portugal, Spain, Germany)

February 19th, 2020

IT: Richiesta di sostegno economico per la difesa legale di Gabriel Pombo Da Silva

Our comrade Gabriel, arrested on January 25 in Portugal, is still locked in the cells of the judiciary of Porto waiting for a possible extradition. The second part of the trial started on 27 January. It still hasn’t begun yet, but it will take place in the next few days. Until we notify otherwise, the contact address for writing letters of support and solidarity to Gabriel remains the same.

Gabriel Pombo Da Silva
EPPJ Porto
Rua Assis Vaz,
109 4200-096 Porto
-Portugal-.

Whilst awaiting more news, his lawyer – who is in solidarity with Gabriel – has anticipated that the amount necessary for the defense will be considerable. You need to rely on and pay punctually those professionals with whom you are obliged to work; and we cannot act without the competing lawyers from Portugal and most likely from Germany.

Therefore, a constant amount of money is urgently needed to manage all the bureaucracy that involves the administrations of justice from three different countries (Spanish State, Germany and Portugal).

Currently the legal situation is as follows:
The Girona prosecutor’s office intends that Gabriel spends another 16 years in jail due to the interpretation of a fusion of non-existent penalties. This denies a special principle (one of the legal reasons why it was possible that Gabriel was released in June 2016), which must be claimed by Germany at the request of Portugal, if optionally, they consider it appropriate.

The extradition order will be frozen while Portugal analyzes the situation, consults Germany about the “special principle” and determines in the situation whether to extradite him or not.

The objective of the defense is the immediate release of Gabriel by recognition of the same “special principle”. If that was not achieved, the objective would be to avoid extradition and serve any supposed outstanding penalty in Portugal, avoiding the harassment that awaits him in the prisons of Spain.

In case of extradition, it would be fought so that this penalty was not fulfilled, applying any redemptions and mergers that until today have not been accounted for, an action that could also be implemented if it met with approval in Portugal.

In any case, you have to work legally so that no prosecution can reopen any previous case and end any possible order of arrest.

At the moment, a bank account has been opened for these purposes, in the name of his partner Elisa, to receive the solidarity contributions by the fastest, most direct and orderly way possible:

Petición de apoyo económico para la defensa jurídica de Gabriel Pombo Da Silva

Nuestro compañero Gabriel, detenido el pasado 25 de Enero en Portugal, continúa encerrado en las celdas de la judicatura de Oporto en espera de una posible extradición. La segunda parte del juicio iniciado el 27 de Enero todavía no comienza, pero tendrá lugar en los próximos días.
Mientras no notifiquemos lo contrario, la dirección de contacto para escribirle cartas de apoyo y solidaridad a Gabriel sigue siendo la misma (Gabriel Pombo Da Silva EPPJ Porto, Rua Assis Vaz, 109 4200-096 Porto -Portugal-).
En espera de más novedades, su abogado –que es solidario con Gabriel– nos ha adelantado que el monto necesario para la defensa va a ser considerable. Necesita apoyarse y pagar puntualmente a los profesionales con los que está obligado a trabajar; no puede actuar sin el concurso de los abogados de Portugal y muy probablemente de Alemania.
Por lo tanto, se necesita urgentemente una cantidad de dinero constante para hacerse cargo de toda la burocracia que implica las administraciones de justicia de tres países diferentes (Estado español, Alemania y Portugal).

Actualmente la situación jurídica es la siguiente:
La fiscalía de Girona pretende que Gabriel cumpla 16 años más debido a la interpretación de una fusión de penas inexistentes. Niega el principio de especialidad (una de las razones jurídicas por la que fue posible su liberación en el junio del 2016), que ha de ser reclamado por Alemania a petición de Portugal, si opcionalmente lo estiman oportuno.
La orden de extradición quedará congelada mientras Portugal analiza la situación, pregunta a Alemania sobre el “principio de especialidad” y determine la situación para extraditarlo o no.
El objetivo de la defensa es la liberación inmediata por reconocimiento del mismo “principio de especialidad”. Si eso no se consiguiera, el objetivo sería evitar la extradición y que cumpliera la supuesta pena residual en Portugal, evitando el acoso que le espera en las cárceles españolas.
En caso de extradición, se lucharía para que no se cumpliera esa pena aplicando redenciones y fusiones que hasta hoy no han sido computadas, acción que también se podría implementar si cumpliese esa pena en Portugal.
En todo caso, hay que trabajar legalmente para que ninguna fiscalía pueda reabrir alguna causa anterior y terminar con toda posible orden de arresto.
De momento, se ha abierto para estos fines una cuenta bancaria, a nombre de su compañera Elisa, para recibir las aportaciones solidarias de la forma mas rápida, directa y ordenada posible:

Italy: Microphones found in buildings in Pisa and Follonica

February 19th, 2020

IT/EN/FR

On January 31st we found microphones* in the Garage Anarchico in Pisa, as well as in the house of a comrade, in Follonica. The devices were connected to the electrical systems of both buildings and were used to listen to discussions over a period of several months. It should be noted that the spies entered the premises with a technological device that does a kind of ultrasound scan of the inside of the locks.

The cops began their investigations following an arson attack on a vivisection laboratory in Pisa, which was never reported in the press.

* The company that supplied the devices is Lutech Spa, based in Roncello (MB).

Vandalism of a Whole Foods Store in anti-Amazon action (USA)

February 19th, 2020

Communique 1
Anarchist Insurgency Cell – Informal Anarchist Federation

We spray painted anarchist, anti-police, anti-capitalist, and anti-fascist symbols and slogans on the front of a Whole Foods supermarket. We did this in Los Angeles on February 16, 2020. Whole Foods is owned by Amazon, whose CEO Jeff Bozos is the richest man in the world. We wanted to send a clear message to him and capitalists everywhere.

We disabled the Amazon Locker at the supermarket as an act of economic sabotage against Amazon. We spray painted the screen, keypad, and security camera on the locker. We wrote “Fuck Bezos” on it to make it clear that this is an attack on capital and not the workers.

Amazon has collaborated with La Migra aka I.C.E. by snitching on undocumented workers who have gone on strike. They have supported the surveillance capitalist infrastructure of police state with Amazon Web Services. We wrote “Green Capital” on a wall mounted statue of a tree to make clear our hatred of green-washing. We painted the anti-fascist symbol of the three arrows to make our opposition to fascism known. We wrote 1312 multiple times to demonstrate our hatred of the police. In addition we sprayed mash capital over the front doors. We destroyed advertisements, painted over a vending machine, and painted over a few surveillance cameras.

To take credit for the action, we wrote AIC FAI and FAI next to the anarchy symbol (which we painted all over).

Naarm/Melbourne: Five Affirmations Formed in Smoke and Fire (so-called Australia)

February 19th, 2020

FIVE AFFIRMATIONS FORMED IN SMOKE AND FIRE

1. In these fires we see the ongoing violence of more than two centuries of colonisation on this continent. In attempting to eradicate the sovereignty of First Nations people and their connections to country, so much long-held knowledge about taking care of this land has been dismissed. Instead of a holistic and interconnected relationship with the environment, there is a relationship based on domination and possession.

A colonial society is not capable of establishing a nourishing relationship with the environment.

2. In these fires we see the devastation that is arriving due to climate change. While mining and the fossil fuel industry should be targets of our anger, they do not speak to the entirety of the devastation. Industrial farming of water-hungry crops like cotton and rice while rivers run dry. Livestock churning through the soil as erosion leads to desertification. The logging of old-growth forests. The links in the chain connect to our whole way of life.

The scale of devastation is systematic, and so the entire system becomes our target.

3. In these fires we see the outcome of a complete disregard for life beyond generating wealth. And we know that there is no changing course within capitalism, with its endless drive for the next source of profit. The destitution that it inflicts upon all life and the environment through insatiable resource extraction has been noted. We won’t be fooled by desperately staged attempts at green-washing.

Capitalism will get no further chances.

4. In these fires we see that there is no way forward in rebuilding back to the way things were. This might not be the end times or the apocalypse – it might simply be the new normality. Catastrophe, followed by catastrophe, followed by doing the best we can to recover. But if ‘recovery’ means desperately trying to return to a way of life that is untenable, we’d rather not. Colonised people have been living and fighting through catastrophe for a long time. Do the rest of us feel that we have enough skin in the game now to join them?

There is not much positive in this disaster, but from these ashes we can build something different.

5. In these fires we see that those who govern us – no matter what party they represent – will never provide for us, even in the hardest of times. Just ask one of the volunteer firies fighting the flames. If it wasn’t Scotty from marketing, it would be some other insufferable fuckwit. They protect wealth and the economy, while playing on anxiety and fear. They do nothing to sustain us.

In these times of crises, we can only turn to each other in solidarity and mutual aid.

To finish…
This country now has its own climate refugees, joining millions of others from all around the world. We have seen people risk everything to assist each other, sharing resources and caring for others. This kind of humanity need not be reserved for extreme situations. While it might start the people immediately alongside us, the alliances we build and the mutual aid we enact will have to cross borders and reflect the global scale of what we are facing.

As the extreme becomes normal, so can our solidarity.

Russia – A Call for Solidarity Actions – February 22-29

February 19th, 2020

RU/DE

We must not forget the anarchists and anti-fascists suffering repression in Russia! We are calling for people to take action of all forms to express support for these prisoners, to protest the prison system, and to spread information about the use of torture as an instrument of repression in Russia.

Why now? On 10th February, 630 kilometers from Moscow, the court in Penza passed sentence on seven people accused of organizing the so-called “anarchist terrorist community ‘Network’”. This entire case is based on confessions the defendants were forced to agree to via intense torture as well as weapons planted by police and an extremely tenuous accusation that they were “planning to plan terrorist actions to overthrow the government of Russia”. For a “crime” without victims involving no real action and no real plan, the sentences decreed by the court are shockingly high. Dmitry Pchelintsev and Ilya Shakursky, the supposed organizers of this fabricated “Network,” were sentenced to 18 years and 16 years in prison, respectively. The others have been sentenced as follows: Arman Sagynbaev 6 years, Andrei Chernov 14 years, Vasily Kuksov 9 years, Mikhail Kulkov 10 years, and Maxim Ivankin 13 years of imprisonment.

Scientists, journalists, human rights defenders, and other groups in Russia have protested and demanded that the sentence be repealed.

International solidarity is especially important at this moment because the “Network case” is not over. In St.-Petersburg, two more people, Viktor Filinkov and Julian Boyarshinov, await trial on related charges. The next court hearings are planned for February 25-28. This is why we ask that solidarity actions take place the last week of February.

Many other anarchists and anti-fascists in Russia are experiencing repression and torture, including Azat Miftahov, Ilia Romanov, Egor Lesnyh, Evgeny Karakashev and Kirill Kuzminkin. They also deserve our attention.

If you have a Russian consulate or embassy in your city, consider organizing an action in front of it!

Email action reports to rupression@protonmail.com or via Telegram to @RUPRESSION_bot or Rupression social networks.

We will inform the prisoners about any actions that take place.

Poster: Mast Fires Map – Solidarity with Badger (UK)

February 13th, 2020

FR: Une carte des incendies d’antennes-relais – Solidarité avec Badger

PDF: International solidarity with Badger

Bristol Mast Fire

Fourteen arson attacks against telecommunications and mobile phone masts in the Bristol and Bath area took place over the last decade.

This imaginal map is an attempt to show a rough sketch of how these attacks were spread over a large area.

The Earth is being rapidly destroyed by a matrix of greed, consumerism, technology and industrial exploitation which has poisoned the air, rivers and land, harmed all living beings and made millions of species extinct.

These attacks caused substantial losses for the capitalist companies and shows that the system can be sabotaged through organisation and direct action. One way to hit the system is by economic and strategic sabotage in all fronts.

The cost of the damage can never equate to the profits the system loots from our lives everyday and the damage that it has done to the Earth.

Despite years of police repression against the anarchist movement no one has been charged with the fires but the cops have accused a fugitive anarchist comrade ‘Badger’ for involvement in one incendiary strike in 2013 that took out police radio, Vodafone services and TV and digital coverage to 80,000 homes and businesses.
The action was claimed by the FAI/ELF – Horizons of Burning Rage.
Police also accuse Badger of trashing the windows of right-wing rag ‘Bristol Post’ in the riots of 2011. Innocent or guilty is irrelevant to our solidarity.

Stay free Badger – Long live anarchy!

PDF: How to Destroy Cell Phone Towers

February 13th, 2020

FR: Tract : Comment détruire des antennes-relais

PDF: How to destroy cell phone towers

How to Destroy Cell Phone Towers

Recipe: Standard size cell phone tower, used by two or three cell carriers.
Usually on the front of the installation there will be a sign noting the companies.

Ingredients:

2-3 comrades

Entry tools (Boltcroppers, Wiresnips, etc)
Gloves, Mask, Clean Clothes, Hat, Cap or Hood (for DNA traces)

Fuel (500ml, White Spirit or Kerosene preferred instead of Benzine/Petrol)
Fuel (100ml of Benzine/Petrol)
Firelighters, Several Lighters, Long Pole or Stick (up to 15ft)
Thick Rags/Towelling (to absorb the fuel)
Small Tyre which is easy to fit in a rucksack (from Wheelbarrow, Quad Bike, Moto etc)

Stage 1. Recon the target. Locate the weak point in the installation, which is where the network cables depart from the mast vertical and enter horizontally or similar into the electrical source, which is usually either a small reinforced building or box. The exposed cables may be located at ground level or up to 15ft up the mast for example. Note estimated timings, entry and exit points, security cameras, motion sensors, lighting etc. Aim to execute the action within 15 mins.

Stage 2. Check and enter the site, climb the mast if needed, cut the cable ties that bunch the wires together at the weak point you located earlier. Wedge the tyre in between the cables securely and stuff the tyre with rags and wrap some rags around the cables climbing up the mast from that point. Soak the rags inside the tyre and up the mast with fuel. Take care not to cover yourself with fuel traces, prevent unneeded forensic evidence and do not set yourself on fire. If you are using a pre-made timed incendiary device place it inside the tyre and set it. Climb down.

Stage 3. If using a timed device, leave the site immediately. If not, check the site and your exit points quickly. This second check is to prevent any detection, unnecessary injuries or death due to the extended nature of the action.

Stage 4. Light the fire using a pole or stick wrapped with fuel-soaked rags, Benzine is better here as the wind can get very strong where these mast are located usually. Light the rags inside the tyre from a distance, getting as far back as possible. If the tyre is small, then the fire is smaller, and detection is lessened. Practice operating in windy environments to get used to using fire at altitude and in difficult circumstances. Leave immediately.

Security: Dispose of all materials used in the sabotage action and do not return to the site. Police scientific teams will extensively search the target’s area, entry and exit points, and routes to and from, for any trace of material they can use as evidence.

This recipe is open to be adapted and developed for use wherever it is needed, larger and more complex targets and systems need more developed plans of attack. Trial and error are the guide.

Poster: ‘We are at war’ – About some repressive cases against anarchists (Spain)

February 13th, 2020

via ContraMadriz:

We are at war

29th of May and 19th of October of 2018: Police raids in Madrid and Palencia related to the repression against the riots of Hamburg against the G20 summit in July 2017 take place. This police operation was coordinated at an European level, with a lot of cooperation between different states. Attacks in response to these police raids happen all around Europe, and they are still happening.

29th of October of 2018: Two anarchists are arrested in Madrid accused of burning a Bankia ATM the 11th of april of that same year. This action was done in solidarity with Lisa, an anarchist who is actually in prison for robbing a bank in Germany. A lot of banks receive the solidarity of the anarchists.

25th of April of 2019: An anarchist is arrested accused of attacking VOX headquarters in Madrid with a hammer. Several political headquarters are attacked during the election campaign.

13th of May of 2019: Antiterrorist operation against the anarchist movement in Tetuán (Madrid). Two anarchists are arrested under the charge of terrorism. Police break into a house and the Espacio Okupado Anarquista La Emboscada. Different attacks in solidarity happen all around the State.

During all 2019: There is an increase of evictions of squatted spaces all around the state. Dozens of people are arrested and are waiting for trial. Attacks and riots in defence of those squatted spaces.

Solidarity-Complicity- Attack.

No rest for the Exploiters.

No rest for the Power.

No peace for the State.

Athens,Greece: Hands off Exarchia – New Democracy’s War on Anarchists

February 11th, 2020

On July 8th, 2019, the New Democracy government of Kyriakos Mitsotakis assumed power in Greece, after campaigning on a promise to ‘clean up’ the central Athens neighbourhood of Exarchia, and ‘take it back’ from the anarchists.

Since then, the Greek state has launched a renewed attack against the anarchist and self-organized migrant movements, targeting squats and promising future raids. Against this threat, Greek anarchists have responded with characteristic resolve and determination.

Athens, Greece: Notara 26 Squat is Attacked by Cops

February 11th, 2020

THEY DON’T INTIMIDATE US, THEY INFURIATE US!

Last night at Notara26 Refugee/Migrant Housing squat we were attacked for the third time in the past six months by the state uniformed bullies.

Around 4:30 am – only a few minutes after one more attempt by undercover police to intimidate one of our comrades who was on her way to our squat- a riot squad, totally unprovoked, surrounded our squat twice.
The first time they were flashing their torches and laser pointers into our lobby persistently trying to see our faces and how many we were. They then withdrew for about ten minutes but came back reinforced. Τhis time apart from torches and laser pointers, they tried to force our squat’s door open.

These practices of the uniformed state terrorists DO NOT SCARE US! We are here, we continue our everyday struggle against fascism, racism and repression. We form strong solidarity and comradeship ties.
The only result this kind of bullying can have is to bring us even more together and our ranks closer!!!
There is only one thing to say…

WE SHALL MEET AT THE BARRICADES

Assembly of Notara 26, 10/2/2020
