Diciembre Negro/Angry presente!: A dos años desde que un guerrero pasó a ser estrella negra iluminando las noches de la anarquía (Chile)

Monday, December 14th, 2015

Diciembre Negro/Angry presente!: A dos años desde que un guerrero pasó a
ser estrella negra iluminando las noches de la anarquía.

Hace dos años, el 11 de diciembre de 2013, el compañero Sebastián Angry
Oversluij fue abatido por las balas de un defensor del capital mientras
intentaba expropiar un banco. Con el corazón lleno de recuerdos en este
Diciembre Negro queremos nuevamente compartir algunos sentires y
reflexiones sobre la muerte y la memoria.

No es fácil asumir la muerte de un compañerx. Pero todo continua!

Nuestra lucha a muerte con el poder la vivimos como una guerra, pero en
ella cada compañerx es valiosx y no podemos normalizar la pérdida de
seres irreemplazables que asumieron la lucha anárquica como camino de
vida. Vidas como las nuestras, con ideas como las nuestras, con
prácticas como las nuestras. Por eso es para nosotrxs inevitable
preguntarnos a nosotrxs mismos cada día ¿Qué hicimos hoy en relación a
nuestrx compañerx muertx? ¿Sacamos alguna propaganda o llevamos su
nombre y las ideas que nos conectan a las calles? (more…)

Diciembre Negro: Dos años sin el Angry … (Chile)

Saturday, December 12th, 2015

Dos años ya sin el compa Angry. Dos años sin compartir palabras, experiencias, discrepancias, sonrisas, abrazos y complicidades en revuelta.

Ese 11 de diciembre algunxs se enteraron por el noticiario del mediodía, otrxs por la llamada de un/unx compa cercanx. Algunxs estaban reunidxs planificando alguna acción y lloraron abrazadxs, otrxs estaban en medio de sus actividades cotidianas y lo hicieron solxs y en silencio.

Ya son dos años y la partida de un/unx compañerx nunca es algo que termine de doler, pero en la guerra contínua contra el poder hemos aprendido el significado de la memoria insurrecta: recordar a nuestrxs compañerxs muertxs no solo desde el dolor sino que ante todo desde el fuego imperecedero de la vida en revuelta de un/x enemigx declaradx de la dominación.

Hoy del compa Angry nos quedan sus acciones, sus ideas y posiciones de vida y de lucha contra toda autoridad, plasmadas en canciones, dibujos, entrevistas, poemas y acciones. Junto a esto, no olvidamos ni silenciamos el hecho de que el compañero fue abatido empuñando un arma en medio de una expropiación bancaria.

Hemos estado actualizando nuestro blog con aportes de compañerxs que envían textos, afiches, transcripciones de canciones y otras cosas. Éste funciona como archivo, registro y memoria en torno al compañero. Continuaremos actualizándolo con gestos de memoria y combate ocurridos durante 2015, reiterando la invitación a que lxs compañerxs nos envíen sus aporten para que todxs seamos partícipes de esta construcción de memoria antiautoritaria, insurrecta e iconoclasta que cobra real sentido cuando continuamos la lucha que nos hermana con nuestrxs compas muertxs, presxs y clandestinxs.

¡Nunca de rodillas!

¡La revuelta germina, la insurrección nunca termina!

Black December: Words inspired by last nights events in Thessaloniki (Greece)

Monday, December 7th, 2015

As time flies, the hatred grows.
As the stones of the old world are cracked, it is on us to shatter them to ashes.
Let black smoke fill the skies of the cities of the hatred.
Let us burn all that represents the statues of the oppressors, the prisons of
society and the symbols of enchainment.
Let us not forget our comrades who have fallen in the battle for freedom.
Let us not forget those who have died from the bullets of oppression.
For Alexandros, for those who died or are imprisoned, fighting for what they believed.
Let those in power have fear for their lives, let the barricades on the old world burn!

Lets meet each other on the streets,
for insurrection,
for a Black December!

Thessaloniki 07-12-15

Respondiendo al llamado a Diciembre Negro desde las prisiones griegas (Chile)

Monday, December 7th, 2015

ENGLISH VERSION

-En el marco del llamamiento a un Diciembre Negro.
-A 2 años de la muerte en combate del Anarquista Sebastián Oversluij.
-A lxs Rebeldes Subversivxs, Revolucionarixs, Anarquistas y
Antiautoritarixs que luchan por la destrucción de toda forma de Poder y
Autoridad en el mundo entero.

Queremos recordar lo bonito que es que se paralice el espacio-tiempo
social, a través de pequeños o mayores cortocircuitos sociales. Queremos
recordar lo peligrosa que es la anarquía cuando quiere. Por un Diciembre
Negro. Nikos Romanos, Panagiotis Argirou.

Desde las prisiones griegas, desde la resistencia cotidiana en las
entrañas de la bestia de la sociedad carcelaria se gesta un llamado al
recuerdo de la inestabilidad de la paz social bajo la amenaza constante
de rompimiento de la normativa, el que nos invita a hacer de este
recuerdo particular una iniciativa que se multiplique en la
multiformidad del ataque antagonista y antiautoritario, que nos invita a
propagar la acción que desborda la teoría sin dejar pie para excusas o
letargos. (more…)

Il Buco – Informazione e Traduzione Anarchica (Italia)

Tuesday, November 24th, 2015

via CNA Italia:

Segnaliamo la pubblicazione di un nuovo blog di informazione e traduzione anarchica,dal loro testo di presentazione:

Il Buco è un nuovo blog di traduzione e diffusione di notizie del mondo anarchico, sarà un blog multilinguistico ed aperto alla più ampia collaborazione.

Il nostro appoggio da sempre va a tutti i prigionieri rinchiusi nelle celle della democrazia di tutto il mondo e a tutti i compagni sparsi su questa terra. Agli anarchici d’azione, ai nostri compagni e fratelli che si muovono tra le tenebre della notte per colpire la falsa tranquillità della borghesia che vuole dominarci.

“IL BUCO” era una botola che scendeva in un sotterraneo in cui si riuniva il movimento Anarchico clandestino di cui fecero parte Pedrini E Lucetti, da qui abbiamo preso il nostro nome, da chi prima di noi ha scelto di lottare per l’Anarchia!

Against Apolitical Squatting – Squatters and Homeless Autonomy (UK)

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

Received from Squatters and Homeless Autonomy Collective:

Coming to Terms

In Camden, an eight-month squat is evicted by pigs and three are arrested under Section 144, the 2012 ban on residential squatting. A man in a SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL SQUAT t-shirt waits for NELSN to forward a text. Two arrive from a council-estate squat further north. Builders begin to secure the building. Against Section 144, against increasing precarity and repression, broken self-identity and fractured organisation, London squatting seems to have begun a coming-to-terms.

Attempts to surround the fragility of the squat scene with nostalgia have come thick and fast: Remember the Squatters’ Union; remember unrestricted residential squatting; remember squatters’ rights. As ever this nostalgia is a thinly disguised dose of forgetfulness: Squatting has always meant struggle; and no mourning for a golden age can deny the permanence of our struggles and the permanent need to politicise them.

'Panggayaw' for Lumad self-determination and autonomy for other Indigenous Communities (Philippines)

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015

There is quite a number of cultures existing and continuously practiced by different indigenous communities in the islands. It is estimated that there is 110 languages in the archipelago and the concept of “Manggayaw” or “Panggayaw” is commonplace. The said word is being used by indigenous communities in different areas in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. It corresponds with attacking from the waters or land on specific targets considered to be “enemies”.

Manggayaw or Panggayaw could be due to various reasons such as revenge, protection, raiding for marriage or pillaging for its own sake and slave trading in certain places.

Barbaric could be the first thing which comes to minds. Others consider it an uncivilized act based on how we were raised and brought up by our society. This could only be the case if the institutions like the government, market, school or church shaped our consciousness the way it did.

Therefore it is so much better to be familiar with this part of our culture which our ancestors are proud and considered to be positive in regards to marriage, blood pact, trade and even warfare. It is an imperative for many Lumads in the archipelago to engage in Panggayaw or “Panggagamot.” These practices are imbedded in our belief system which resonates also with marriage, planting, hunting, exchange and ritual offerings to indigenous spirits.

According to the colonizers (republican government, communists and the church) these practices which emanated from our ancestors are backward and needed to be replaced. (more…)

Solidarity to the fight of the Lumad people (Philippines)

Sunday, November 8th, 2015

We are currently supporting a campaign of the Lumad, an indigenous people who are victimized by atrocities of three institutions : the corporations, government military/para-military and left-wing insurgents (New People’s Army – NPA).

Our call is:
END LUMAD EXPLOITATION AND KILLINGS!
LET THE LUMAD SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES!
CORPORATIONS, STATE MILITARY AND LEFT-WING INSURGENTS – KEEP OUT OF LUMAD ANCESTRAL LANDS.
DON’T BE USED BY LEFT AND RIGHT WING PARTIES.
FIGHT FOR AUTONOMY!

The Lumad comprise the indigenous people living in Southern Mindanao. They have become refugees in different parts of the country as they flee from escalating violence, rape and harassment.

Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact (AIPP)
Public Statement


4 September 2015
– AIPP strongly condemns the continued brutal killings of Lumads in Mindanao of the Philippines at the hands of paramilitary groups and security forces. At least 13 Lumad human rights defenders and community members, including two children, have been killed in five incidents of extrajudicial killings and four massacres in the past eight months, with the recent killings of Emerito Samarca, Executive Director of a tribal school, and two other Lumad leaders in Surigao del Sur on 1 September. In the aftermath of the killings, more than 4000 Lumads evacuated to a neighboring village due to fear for their safety, and schools have been closed down. (more…)

War against ISIS/Daesh: Respect to the fallen fighter John Gallagher of YPG (Rojava, Syria)

Saturday, November 7th, 2015

John Gallagher, the Canadian volunteer YPG fighter, is an internationalist hero who gave his life for a noble cause. He left behind a grieving family, and a world in gratitude for his bravery and sacrifice.

Why the War in Kurdistan Matters

First, let me get the obvious out of the way: I do not expect anyone to agree that it is a wise course of action to volunteer to fight against ISIS. Would-be terrorists from all over the world, including Canada, (including some I probably went to school with,) are flooding into the Middle East by the thousands. They’ve got the numbers and the weapons to win this war, so to go stand on the other side of the battlefield is objectively insane.

I also respect the viewpoint that the last thing any westerners ought to do is get involved in another Middle Eastern conflict. We’ve already done tremendous damage to the region; the rise of ISIS is a direct result of foreign policy blunders by the last two Presidents (at least!). If you think that for the good of the region we should all sit this one out, I can understand that. But I can’t agree.

The cause of a free and independent Kurdistan is important enough to be worth fighting for all on its own. The Kurdish people are the largest ethnicity in the world without a country of their own, and have suffered enormously under the boot-heel of regional powers. Now they are under threat from another genocidal foe, yet they have not given themselves over to the joint manias of religious fanaticism and suicide murder. This should be enough reason for the West to give them whatever support they need in such a time of crisis. But there is an even better reason. (more…)

"Assillo" is back – Squatting in Trento (Italy)

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

PDF : Assillo Text

THE SHIP HAS LIFTED THE ANCHOR AWAY
“ASSILLO” IS BACK

On the 24th of October we squatted a building in Trento, Italy.
We need places to live differently and and where we can organize ourselves.
The demonstration that those are not only our needs is proved by many and many people who joined the experience of the “Assillo” and “Villa Assillo”, places left empty for years that started to live again for months before the police came and evicted us destroying the roofs – because police fear our will to manage our own lives.
We are stubborn. We view our passions as real because we believe in their reality.
Without the struggles that put brakes on it, the Power is walking on million of people’s lives with a roadroller, every day more precarious, more isolated, more senseless. (more…)
