Each day is Day X until we got Kadterschmiede back
…and until the existence of Kanal, Linie, Potse/Drugstore, M99 is no longer threatened.
The list of projects in Berlin facing eviction is long. The pressure on alternative living spaces and other places where me can meet up, exchange our ideas and develop alternatives is constantly increasing. So is our anger. We’re pissed off.
On June 22nd cops broke into R94 at 7:30am without prior notice. They were sent by a politician acting on the demands of a former Apartheid attorney. In the following process of eviction they destroyed most of Kadterschmiede, the yard and the ground floor and threw out everything that was left. Since then the rest of the house is under siege by security and cops.
The people living in R94 have been assaulted verbally, physically and sexually by the besiegers. They have lost any kind of privacy and are facing random controls when entering their home. People without papers who had been living in the house so they don’t have to face the dehumanizing situations in the Lager (=official refugee camps) before the attack had to rashly leave their homes and have been unable to return.

Call out from Housing projects in Nordkiez, Friedrichshain, Berlin: Defend Rigaer 94! Destroy the Investor’s Paradise!
On the 17th of June, we published the first call out for the 9th July neighbourhood demo “Destroy the Investor’s Paradise, Stop Carré Sama-Rigaer!”, 5 days later the landlord, cops, and Senate cooperated in the storming of the house project Rigaer 94. The cops, private security and labourers evicted the autonomous collective space “Kadterschmiede”, the rest of the ground floor, including a workshop and garden, the attic in the back house and also the squatted attic in the front house.
John Dehwurst, who bought the house at the end of 2014, took the responsibility for this attack through a hypocritical press release from the fictitious building management. It was claimed that the evicted parts of the house would be used as living space for refugees. This would mean that the people moving in would find themselves under constant surveillance by the cops and security. At the moment such people are able to live in Rigaer 94 in self determined and supportive structures. We take this propaganda as an attempt to destroy structures of resistance by cynically playing different groups off against each other. The AfD, NPD and Co. are rubbing their hands in glee at the argumentation from the South African apartheid-regime lawyer Dehwurst and the ‘Law and Order’ politics of justice minister Frank Henkel.

AMENAZA DE DESALOJO EN MADRID
ESOA La Dragona: “Lo que el PP no ha podido hacer en 7 años, lo pretende hacer en 7 meses Ahora Madrid”
Sobre el ESOA La Dragona de Madrid pesa una amenaza de desalojo. El pasado martes convocaron una rueda de prensa para exponer sus posiciones y dar a conocer su plan de lucha.
El ESOA La Dragona comienza a funcionar en el año 2008 tras liberar activistas y jóvenes vecinos del madrileño barrio de La Elipa un edificio abandonado durante más de 25 años perteneciente al cementerio de La Almudena.
El cementerio se encuentra actualmente gestionado por la empresa mixta de servicios funerarios FUNESPAÑA S.A., cuyo principal accionista es la multinacional española Mapfre. El gobierno del Partido Popular otorgó la concesión a esta empresa durante 20 años a cambio de tan solo 100 pesetas, lo que le valió una imputación al entonces alcalde de Madrid, Francisco Álvarez del Manzano, por un delito de prevaricación y malversación de fondos públicos.

“Every Eviction Has Its Price” : International Call Out From Rigaer 94 – Demos 5th & 9th July – Berlin (Germany)
Thursday, June 30th, 2016
It has now been over a week since our doors were first cut off, cops and security intruded into our housing project, installing themselves in our stairways and other previously collective spaces. From then, the speedy and aggressive eviction and destruction of the ground level of our home began. Our social space, the Kadterschmiede, along with our workshop, laundry, attic and garden were stripped of all recognition in clouds of dust and mortar, while rubbish skips were filled with our belongings and collective histories.
Our rebellious, emancipatory project has been overrun by empty headed lackeys in uniform and we are pissed – not the least because we are used to better company than this. Whether these unwelcome wardens wear uniforms issued by the state or private security companies makes little difference to us. They both show their petty allegiance to the logic of domination and control not only via their presence but also through daily acts of physical violence, harassment, degrading comments and leers – not only directed towards us, but our visitors, friends and neighbours including young children. The police have set up a restricted area, closing off the entrance to the building and its surrounds, with anyone wanting to enter their home or visit us having to pass a gauntlet of beefed up aggressive cops and security, often needing to present identification. This process can take hours.
Further it has just been exposed that the police have been recording the details and compiling a database of people that have been identified coming into the house. At least part of this list has been passed on to and published by organised Nazi groups. (more…)

Comrades are currently mobilising in the streets to make the eviction as expensive as possible for the cops and the Berlin Senate. Below is today’s announcement by Rigaer94.
This morning, June 22nd 2016, at around 7.30am, approximately 300 cops, private security and construction workers came to our house in Rigaerstrasse 94. First, the construction workers cut out our doors and removed them. After securing their place in the house, the cops, construction workers and security, took position in the garden, the yard and on the roof, as well as in the staircases. Construction workers and cops joined together to carry out all movable objects they could find in the yard – bicycles, a bike shed, fridges, trailers etc. Our doors were removed and the frames knocked out, the phone and internet connection was cut. Only after our lawyer got access to the house, we were informed about the reason for the police action. (more…)

Quienes en la lucha por la Liberación humana, animal y de la Tierra asumimos una actitud de confrontación contra el poder en todas sus formas, no queremos sentarnos a mirar cómo pasan las cosas frente a nuestros ojos sino que empujar los acontecimientos hacia la ruptura con el orden la dominación.
Proyectarnos en ofensiva contra toda autoridad nos lleva a buscar organizarnos con otrxs compañerxs para irrumpir en la realidad sacando hacia afuera nuestros deseos de destruir al Estado, el capital, el poder, sus símbolos y representantes.
Aquí compartimos un folleto y un video elaborados para la difusión de propuestas de organización informal para la acción insurreccional contra el poder.
International Call for Women’s Solidarity on World Refugee Day, from the Platform for Struggle for Women Held Captive by Force (Middle East)

Call for the Advancing and Increasing of the Visibility of Women’s Solidarity on 20th of June for World Refugee Day, from the Platform for Struggle for Women Held Captive by Force
Dear Women from all around the World;
We regard the sexist occupation practices of Daesh [ISIS], that is to say practices of systematic sexual torture, rape, enslavement, rendering odalisques, that codifies the women’s bodies as a patriarchal war and ownership zone, as a patriarchal imperialist attack against all women from all around the world.
In addition to this, we come across systematic rape and other forms of sexual violence as founding components of the genocide politics of Daesh against Yazidi people. Around 5000 women and girls, many of whom are Yazidis, who are kidnapped by Daesh as spoils of war are repeatedly sold at slave and odalisques markets and are held captive in a large geographical area that includes Iraq, Syria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Turkey.

We are far from taking a strong defence of any individual who presents him/herself as enemy of the State and of all forms of dominion (over humans, animals and nature). We see how – and many imprisoned and not imprisoned comrades are right in this – not everyone can be defined a comrade or relations be forged with them.
In particular we want to generate a debate on what’s happening with the groups of action that deny anarchy is political objective and everyday struggle. These are so-called eco-extremists who shout coolly ‘death to anarchy’ thus disowning their own origins and formation, the idea following which they used to take nourishment from the warriors of the urban guerrilla of the past and the present, and then they went on to emphasize certain aspects that have always been within anarchy and its struggle for the liberation of humans, our brothers the animals and the earth.
Being extraneous to the constant tension we want to keep and to our struggle to make anarchy alive, a certain self-proclaimed eco-extremist sector is throwing away the libertarian ideal that manifests itself in the insurrectional struggle.
A certain small group linked to the imaginary category of ‘symbolic populations’ and musical/countercultural university areas (they disown university but they attend it… and they study the subjects they hate so much), despise the human animal and therefore see the enemy everywhere. (more…)

Dealing with the perpetual technical problems that the comrades who attend the library already know, we present the book “Our day will come” that we translated to Portuguese and we watched the movie made by CCF comrades “Phoenix Project. The Return of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire”.
We began the event with the reading of the words written by the comrades of “Sin Banderas, ni Frontera”, core of agitation and anti-authoritarian propaganda from Chile, of Kataklysma contra information blog, of Spyros Mandylos and of the CCF comrades. We know that these words arrived to us and teased us deeply; that listen to them was an important moment of the event. It would have been difficult not to feel us captivated by the strenght of the messages read and the firmness that they transmit. After the reading, we watched the video of the Phoenix Project, the words and voices of the comrades in the video made all of us feel closer of the comrades, and, at the same time in which we delighted with the accurate attacks against domination.
Breaking grades, frontiers and distance that separates us was one of our aim with the initiative of realizing this event. We believe that in this breaking, resides the solidarity, at the end, transforming distant in near, we bring seeds for the insurrect action in this territory, and we know that it doesn’t exist better solidarity act that the attack. Nevertheless, this event was one more impulse so that we have to keep sharpen ours knives pointing against Power… (more…)

I would prefer my interference to be face-to-face, being among us. But my restriction orders don’t allow me to move across the borders of Thessaloniki city. The restriction orders is a tactic that is used frequently by the Greek state and it attempts to keep anarchists as political hostages.
I would like to salute this event by highlighting the importance of events such this, in which there is the participation of people who either they have accomplished armed actions or they have been targeted from the repressive mechanisms of the state with the excuse of the anarchist urban guerilla. Also, it’s important the fact that this event has international characteristics, which proves that solidarity can’t be restricted by the borders.
I would like to mention 2 subjects. The first one is the connection between the “public” and the “illegal” parts of anarchy and the second one is my personal opinion about the way the nihilist tendency -the “third pole” as it’s used to be referred to the last years- should be organized. (more…)

This text is a response to the call „Fuck nations, squat the world“. The discussion about squats as focal points of lawlessness and coordinated anarchist action are held everywhere across the world. Surely the „rebellious Nordkiez“ (the northern area) in Friedrichshain is relevant for many people, not only those that inhabit it. And what occurs outside of this bubble, for example the fascist and state attacks against Greek squats and in the area of Exarcheia, is connected to it.
Report from the Nordkiez – where the state of emergency became normality
There have been innumerable episodes in this neighbourhood. Our story is that of an area of constant unrest, which has been a place of autonomous struggle for the last 26 years. We continue writing this history by declaring that the episode of the „Dangerzone“ is over, it is time to move forward in our struggles against the state, capital and the entire apparatus of domination and exploitation which surrounds us.

Victory to Network of Revolutionary Cells in fight against boss of Prague restaurant Rizkarna (Czech Republic)
Thursday, May 26th, 2016
Source : SRB
The fight of The Network of the Revolutionary Cells (SRB) against Prague restaurant Rizkarna lasted over a year. The owner of the restaurant Vladimir Krulec didn’t pay wages to his employees. He finally admitted defeat. After pressure of SRB he payed owed wages to some of the employees who worked there.
SRB organized different sabotages of the restaurant since March 2015. Four times restaurants’ cars were set on fire. Few times the restaurant was disrupted with the Butiric acid. There was also dozens of forced evacuations which caused enclosure for the public. The sabotages were an extensive loss for the business. The threat of more damages finally made Krulec to admit his defeat. He did what SRB wanted him to: to pay those owed wages.
The victory of SRB was a product of enforcement. We defined the goal of the struggle and through the direct actions we made Krulec to accomplish it. There was no space for concession. There was no mediation through bureaucracy or politicians. No negotiation or concessions in order to find a compromise. This we commit to others. We prefer the logic of permanent www.topambienonline.com conflict that makes our enemies to do what we need.
There were other direct actions before SRB started its actions. Protests, happenings, pickets or occupations of the restaurant. These were organized by other groups and under specific circumstances it could’ve been successful. But it didn’t lead to a success and that was the reason why SRB started their actions. It was designed to intensify the pressure on Krulec. The autonomous actions and used methods were enforced by circumstances but are not the universal model for all situations.
Organizing pickets can be sufficient for some other struggles. In that case there is no need to set cars on fire. But where the moderate protests are not working the sabotages can be a good way how to win such fights. This one is a good example. Let it inspire ourselves and let’s take advantage from the gained experience. Let’s analyze it and utilize it for the future fights.

C.C.F. – SQUATS – THE HOUSES OF ANARCHY.
Some thoughts on the invitation sent by the comrades of Papamichelaki Squat, of Teflon Library, of Radiofragmata and of Continuous Deconstruction, about the Squatting issue.
The following text corresponds to snapshots and features that we can find in the current squats in Greece.
I) Property is theft.
“Property is theft” says one of the oldest anarchist slogans. It is the theft of collective life, it is the abolition of community, it is the refuge of taking distance from the commons, of fear.
Property and its twin sister power, gives birth to the distinction of people based on titles, positions and privileges… Just like the sky has no borders, the land should not be owned.
A human from a collective being becomes an owner. An owner not of their life but of walls, windows and furniture…
Squats have begun as a form of denial of property, and of self-organised expression. The course of the squat movement has many shades… Some of them are more militant, others are more harmless… There are anarchist squats and alternative squats, squats which are cores of lawlessness and squats which are dehydrated cultural centers.
Today in Greece there are much more squats than in the past, not only in Athens but also in many cities. (more…)

A better way to make real and stable peace in Afghanistan
In the same week that David Cameron accused Afghanistan of being ‘fantastically corrupt’, the UK donated £200 million.
”Why does Cameron continue to prop up the puppet government of Afghanistan and whilst ignoring the grassroots initiatives that are making such a huge difference with limited resources?’ says Dr. Sanaul Haq Ahmadzai, the Chairman and Trustee of International Committee for Rehabilitation Aid to Afghanistan (ICRAA). ‘ICRAA leads different projects that have helped hundreds of thousands of rural Afghans adopt skills for sustainable agricultural practices that alleviate hunger and provide income for family needs.’ (more…)
