[Koukaki] Solidarity action for Dervenion 56 squat and an international call for solidarity (Greece)
Saturday, July 4th, 2020
We are calling for international actions in solidarity with the Squats. Make the Greek state, the Greek capital and its partners regret the choice they made to attack the movement and its spaces in Greece. To defend Dervenion 56 and all squats,to prepare the ground for the coming social uprising.
On Friday 26/6, in Exarchia, the Greek state evacuated and sealed Dervenion 56 squat and the building at Dervenion 52. An immediate gathering of solidarity was held at Exarxia Square for several hours.In the evening of the same day, a solidarity march was held with the participation of 300 people. The march ended at Dervenion squat, barricades were set up around the perimeter and then comrades broke the concrete blocks of shame.

Buenos Aires, Argentina. June 2020
“…Anarchism is either illegal or it’s not anarchism. That is its essence and its meaning. Its nature. For the same reason, it sometimes seems so obvious to us that we forget to insist punctiliously on the anti-authoritarian and therefore, the consequently anti-systemic character of anarchism. Rabidly anti-systemic! We are against all authority. That is our maxim… That we are against the system of domination, that we are fighting against the social order as a whole, we are objecting to its order and the laws that support it. All laws have been and will be made to give legal support to oppression and domination…”
– Gustavo Rodriguez
This is an appeal to our friends, to our comrades, like-minded and not so like-minded. A warm invitation to practice beautiful disobedience and take back our lives. A call to conflict against all that exists here and now, assuming the consequences of a life at war.
For anyone who lives in the territory dominated by the Argentine State, or almost anywhere in the world, currently there is a state of alert in the face of the current situation. The appearance and expansion of covid-19 quickly became a global problem, and while we do not want to question its existence or veracity, we want to show how the “epidemiological outbreak” unmasks the harmfulness of the class society and neoliberal capitalism maintained by the States its main economic groups.

“…establecer, fuera de toda política burguesa, la solidaridad de la acción revolucionaria…”
Las redes de apoyo mutuo, las redes vecinales, el voluntariado (o los asalariados), los bancos de alimentos, todo el inmenso aparato surgido en pocas semanas para contener las desastrosas consecuencias económicas y sociales que la pandemia ha provocado han acaparado la atención de muchas, bien sea por altruismo, bien sea por pura y simple necesidad. Y es normal, dado que como en cualquier crisis que atraviese el sistema capitalista, las consecuencias más graves las sufren en mayor medida aquellos que previamente a la crisis estaban ya jodidos, es decir, los y las pobres, en Madrid o en Sebastopol. Los capitalistas siguen una sencilla lógica: socializar las pérdidas, cuando las haya, y acaparar los beneficios, siempre. Es una de las lógicas que atraviesan una sociedad dividida entre explotados y explotadores, entre gobernados y gobernantes. (more…)

Liebe Freundi*nnen und Genoss*innen,
nachdem die Polizei am letzten Samstag eine Solidaritätskundgebung für Gefangene in der Türkei willkürlich unterbunden hat, wollen wir auf diesen Termin nochmal besonders aufmerksam machen und euch einladen, am wöchentlichen Protest, teilzunehmen.
(jeden) Samstag, 15 Uhr Oranienplatz (Berlin-Kreuzberg)
Der Kampf der Gefangenen in der Türkei, ob der der revolutionären Anwälte, der Mitglieder von Grup Yorum oder den politischen Gefangenen, steht im Allgemeinen für den Kampf um Gerechtigkeit für alle Menschen und den Widerstand gegen Faschismus.
— Hier ein Bericht der letzten Woche —
[B] Polizei verhindert Solidaritätskundgebung
Eine für Samstag den 13. Juni geplante Kundgebung in Berlin-Kreuzberg konnte nicht statt finden.
Seit mehreren Wochen findet jeden Samstag um 15 Uhr auf dem Oranienplatz in Berlin-Kreuzberg eine Solidaritätskundgebung für Gefangene in der Türkei statt.

At this moment in time, abuse of power and the dominance by police, military, politician and State itself are became common practices in different parts of world. In the US, the police killed George Floyd in broad daylight with witnesses standing in front of them. The urge to repress the breathing of a human being justify how State’s forces cruel intention towards its people. This kind of killing and violence made by the police, military and authority in uniform in many parts of the world shows how savagery and dangerous in living under this system. In the Philippines alone, more than 20,000 lives lost since 2016 in the so-called War on Drugs instigated by the State. In the history of human kind, you cannot make an assurance living peacefully while at the same time having a police or military in your community because this people are being summoned by the State to suppress and oppress the people, being an authority gives them an entitlement to use their guns in any way possible. It is very clear for an ordinary citizen to see how authority behave, they are not here “to protect and serve”, they are just here to show their power over its people. That’s the very essence of “Authority”. (more…)

Original article by Adrienne Onday.
When I was an undergrad, I had to fight so many people to allow my voice and opinions to be heard. The central point of my struggle as a young activist then was to get formally organized activists to realize that speaking up is a form of action, too; that not being part of any organization or not being as physically and publicly active in political struggles as they were didn’t mean you weren’t one; that just because someone isn’t doing activism and radicalism the exact same way the established Left does, doesn’t mean they aren’t activists or radicals.
At the time, I was a middle-class kid tied to my meager-for-a-middle-class-kid allowance, my home life, and my mental health struggles. I couldn’t leave our house as much even if I tried because I didn’t have the money to, nor did I have parental permission to go to faraway (anything beyond Quezon City was far to my Marikina-based family) political events that typically last into the night. I also had to deal with crippling anxiety—I used to have attacks at least once a week, and having an attack in public where I knew no one well enough who could help me or send me to safety would not have been a good situation for me. These attacks, growing frequent around 2013 when I started university, lasted well into 2016-2017, when I started becoming more visible at protests and the general political sphere. (more…)

We share with you this album in memory of Mauricio Morales Duarte, who died in May 22,2009 when he tried to attack the Escuela de Gendarmería de Chile (Chilean jailer’s academy).
MAURICIO ANDRÉS DEL GHETTO.
Compilado por la memoria del Punky Mauri.
Recopilación musical con la colaboración de compañerxs de distintos territorios y generaciones, como también de hermanxs cuyas valiosas vidas fueron arrebatadas en la acción.
A la memoria del compañero Mauricio Morales Duarte, caído en combate hace 11 años, cuando decide atacar la Escuela de Gendarmería con un artefacto explosivo de fabricación casera.
Este disco en su mayoría se basa en el libro “Mauri, la ofensiva no te olvida. Textos del compañero anarquista Mauricio Morales”, editado en Septiembre del año 2009; y en audios re-encontrados de pensamientos y posiciones hechos música, es decir, es el propio Mauri quien expone sus ideas y sentires.
Si bien el “Panky Mauri” al final de sus días defendió ideas individualistas y antisociales, eso no quiere decir que no deambulara por distintas iniciativas territoriales o inclusive populares, en barrios y bibliotecas en donde se desenvolvió como sujeto crítico y activo.
Con Mauricio Morales Duarte y Pelao Angry en la Memoria, presentes en la Acción Anárquica; entre Libros, Foros, Fuego y Pólvora Negra.
Released May 22, 2020

En tiempos de incertidumbre por lo que pueda suceder con la pandemia y todo el contexto social que la envuelve. La lucha está presente en las cárceles, en el confinamiento en casa y en las calles. Es inevitable continuar contra todo pronóstico manteniendo siempre nuestra memoria intacta y las manos activas.
Tras los muros…
En las cárceles la lucha de los/as presos/as para poder acceder a beneficios intrapenitenciarios y salir prontamente a la calle se expresa con diferentes tipos de manifestaciones, las que van desde huelgas, barrotazos, comunicados y hemos podido ver a través de los medios de prensa la fuerza de los motines, sectores de las prisiones controladas, algunas con incendios, también con duros enfrentamientos cuerpo a cuerpo contra los carceleros con varios bastardos heridos -aunque después se han cobrado revancha con sus herramientas- su cobardía ante los disturbios ha quedado en evidencia en varios registros.
En la calle… (more…)

The counter-information site La Rebelion de las Palabras recently discontinued their blog. Below is a translated statement about their reasons to do so.
Since the emergence of what is termed the International Network of Counter-Information and Translation in the anarchic sphere, a multitude of individuals and groups construct and maintain regular and not so regular transmissions, crossing borders and bringing news of resistance and repression further than before. The limits of these new-medias, not so new after years of development and recuperation, are increasingly being known, and many counter-information groups have added to the debate with their contributions, ongoing or usually at the closure of their site with their own reflections.
For some time now, we have been internally questioning the real usefulness of this blog for social movements, or revolutionaries, in our environment and beyond. We have tried to review which were really our contributions to the fight and which, on the other hand, only contributed to the spectacle, the folklore, and a purely aesthetic radicalism. We wanted to look back, see the changes in the news and materials, the drifts we had taken, a little driven by our own criteria, but also by fluctuations in the type of content that came to us. Through this exercise, we realized that we also had another need. It had to do with the way in which certain movements or spaces of struggle perceived us and did or did not count on us as a space for dissemination of their initiatives, calls, projects or reflections. And this, in turn, led us to the situation we have now. (more…)

From 13 to 15 September, the heads of government of all European countries will meet with the Chinese government in Leipzig. This will not only be about intensifying trade relations. Rather, it will be about building a new global partnership so that the EU is not ousted from the table of the great powers in the future. The deterioration in the EU’s relationship with the USA under Donald Trump has made it necessary to find another partner to coordinate the shaping of its own global interests with the EU. The topics of the summit are therefore not only economic relations, but also foreign and security policy and – unsurprisingly – digitalisation and digital cooperation, as well as climate protection and human rights. The summit is based on strategic position papers which already began in the EU-China 2020 Strategic Agenda for Cooperation from 2013 and have since become increasingly concrete at the annual meetings. This year, not only representatives from China and the EU will meet for the first time, but also all heads of state and government.

Abstract: The politics in the Philippine archipelago is dominated by hierarchical and alienating politics as represented by reformism and National Democracy. Against these the paper forwards the liberatory politics of anarchism. The paper introduces anarchist concepts such as egalitarian organizing, mutual aid, and direct action for people unfamiliar with these concepts. After situating anarchism in the anti-authoritarian struggles in the archipelago, the paper also argues for a shift in the anarchist politics of the archipelago from an autonomist anarchism towards a revolutionary politics as a social movement.
There is a necessity for a liberatory politics in the Archipelago known as the Philippines and as anarchists we think Anarchism has the framework to fill this need. The dominant forms of politics we have now are insufficient for developing a liberatory politics in the archipelago. This liberatory politics becomes a necessity because politics in the Philippines is currently an alienating affair—a politics done to people rather than people doing politics. We are also dominated by domineering structures and institutions like the market, capitalism, and the state. Against these we forward the liberatory politics of anarchism for a world beyond domination.
