Exeter Anti-EDL demo report (UK)

Saturday, February 12th, 2011

12 Feb 2011

“Today an attempt by the EDL [English Defence League] to hold a rally in Exeter was thoroughly thwarted by hundreds turning out for a festival of diversity and a celebration of multi-culturalism.

Also, Exeter AFA were in attendance and managed to follow this minority of bigots and thugs from their pathetic excuse of a gathering to their local pub – The Kings, Cowick Street, Exeter. These fascists masked up outside the pub, blatantly to try to attack minority groups and their shops later on. We got many photos of the individual scum concerned and these will be posted and distributed asap.

Love, strength and unity to all resist fascism worldwide. And solidarity to all prisoners of the struggle, especially the hunger strikers in Greece. Shortly a SW [South West] ABC will be active. We’ll keep you posted. ANARCHY and PEAS, the SW naughty massive“.

Message From Jock Palfreeman, anti-fascist prisoner (Bulgaria)

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

Jock Palfreeman, a 23 year old Australian with British connections, who spent some time in Bristol, UK, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison in Bulgaria on 2/12/09. He had been on remand at Sofia central prison for 2 years. In Sofia in late December 2007 he intervened when he saw a gang of 15+ Bulgarian football hooligans, with undoubted neo-nazi tendencies, attack 2 Roma (gypsy) people. The gang then attacked Jock with lumps of concrete, and in self-defence he killed one and injured another. The dead man came from a well-known Bulgarian family with political connections. 2 years later after a long eventful trial with many dubious practices and a clear political flavour, Jock was found guilty.

For 3 years my statement of self defence has not changed. And it doesn’t change now. The 3 years have been difficult, but the fact that the judges, prosecutors, private plaintiffs and myself know that I’m innocent brings some comfort.

The false accusers are scared of my case being publicized. Within Bulgaria they have done a very good job of censoring the facts of my case from the Bulgarian language public. In the past year nothing has been mentioned about my case in Bulgarian print nor in TV. In contrast to other languages. (more…)

Urgent Communique from Athens Anarchists (Greece)

Thursday, December 10th, 2009

9-12-2009 : RECENT DAYS HAVE SEEN INCREDIBLE JUNTA ORGIES IN GREECE

EXAMPLES:

1 ) Cops with guns in the demonstrations.
2 ) Motorbike raids against protesters.
3 ) Cops following peaceful demonstrators in their tracks, wild and indiscriminate arrests.
4 ) Staged events such as the alleged assassination attempt against the rector of the Pritanea.
5 ) An enormous number of vague and even criminal charges and arresting people young and old.
6 ) Closing schools on the pretext of swine flu and the merciless beating of students who wanted to get to their schools.
7 ) Undercover cops kidnapping young protesters.
8 ) Higher level visible collaboration between Golden Dawn neo-nazis and the Police.
9 ) Secret meetings between Chrysohoides and the bosses of the TV channels and journalists to decide on how TV reporting was going to be done over these days.
10 ) Secret covert cameras and helicopters hovering constantly.
11 ) Zero tolerance makes a bitter orange and a stone against a bank a felony and a pretext for a police attack.
12 ) BAN on demonstrations and political gatherings in the conversion areas with massive police intimidation and outrageous controls/databasing.
13 ) Hacker attacks on indymedia, and sites of squatted places and TVXS (no borders TV), deleting comments.
14 ) Invasion and PREVENTIVE ARRESTS in many self-managed spaces.
15 ) In an Orwellian way anarchists and the rebels are referred to “fascists and Nazis!”.
16 ) Junta-like removal of asylum [in the universities].

AND HOW MUCH MORE!

Some of these things happened in isolation, and some only happened before under the junta in 1967-1974; others have never happened before, only now.

They never ever happened altogether in such a short space of time!

It seems that the crash which happened here and they are hiding, like the indomitable December, has the power to activate an emergency plan, a new ‘PLASTER CAST’ [repeating the pronuncement of the junta in 1967].

These moments are more than historical. We are witnessing for the first time since 1967 an attempt to impose a fascist police coup. If a parliamentary democracy are able to commit those crimes, the junta is something different and we have all have begun to understand that. The anarchist slogans in the streets are beginning to say bluntly: “DOWN THE JUNTA”.
A collusion of prosecutors, rectors, the upper classes, TV media and police, and still we do not know what other local and foreign forces have been mustered. You hear of missing people. The climate is heavy like under the junta.

THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO BE SILENT! THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO RELAX!
EVERYBODY IN THE STREETS – SQUATS EVERYWHERE!
PLEASE HELP TO SMASH DOWN THE GREEK JUNTA!
THE REGIME IS GOING THE WAY OF 1967!

Wake up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
