Osaka: Message from anarchist comrade about initiation of Nuclear energy + Appeal for action (Japan)

Thursday, June 21st, 2012

325 receives and transmits:

Japanese pro-nuke bastards drive THEIR nuke power plant.

Comrades & Affinities;

Saluton from osaKKKa, in the western part of the japanese islands. Shamelessly, on 16 jun 2012, at last, fuckin’ “liberal” jap government decided to say “ok” for driving a nuke power plant named “ooi3rd & ooi4th” again. So, kansai electriKKK power ltd is preparing for driving THEIR “safe & economy, and also clean energy” as soon as possible. (about 6 weeks after or less, they will be able to drive ooi3rd/ooi4th) This fuckin’ terrible decision made by the evil organizations of the japanese capitalists (nihon-syoukou-kaigisyo… und so weiter) & jap government, and also so many pro-nuke bastards. THEY always urge kansai electric power ltd (=kanden) to drive the nuke power plants for “stable electric power supplying for their selfish benefits”. (more…)

Anarchist and Traditional Fishermen Refuse Coastal Reclamation, 2 People Kidnapped by Police (Indonesia)

Friday, June 8th, 2012

Rough translation from Negasi:

Notes from Negasi: Since 2009, the escalation of resistance in Manado Bay against coastal reclamation intensified. Forefront of this action is a traditional fishing area spread over several points along the Gulf coast of Manado. In addition to fishermen on the beach Tumpaan Sario, Kalasey coastal communities and fishermen who are now on the beach Malalayang II also present persistent denial.

May 4, 2012

Since early morning around 08.00 am, fishermen get the news that the forced seizure of land in plots owned by a doctor named Awalui already stretched to the beach. The fishermen are flocking to the site soon discover that the action has the support of the thugs and the police sector of Malalayang. At 11:00 pm, call for solidarity immediately propagated to other companions in arms. Some anarchists are also involved. (more…)

Friday, May 18th, 2012

By act for freedom now/B.pd

A summary of the events in Val Susa

Various Italian governments have been trying to carry out the TAV (high speed railway) project for more than twenty years. In particular, what politicians and economic lobbies want to achieve is the construction of a high speed railway track linking Turin to Lyon, which will imply the ruin of one of the most beautiful mountain areas of the country, the Susa valley (Piedmont, northern Italy).

The program that we prepare is just only a back-up plan, still it needs to address this to all and make a consensus decision on what the peoples want to happen in the eco-camp. (more…)

NO TAV – Luca Abba’s letter for the coming mobilization days (Italy)

Friday, April 13th, 2012

Translated from informa-azione:

Here is another small contribution from me so that I feel closer to the mobilizations of the next days. I ask you to be there, strong and determined as always, also on my behalf. I won’t be able to be present because I’m still hospitalized at the Cto [trauma unit of hospital] in Turin.

The Clarea valley, like the entire Val Susa, belongs to the people of the Susa valley! Not because it’s our private property but because we belong to this land. For centuries the Clarea valley was the place where generations of our forefathers lived. Meadows and woods were clean, vineyards and fields well looked after and mountain chalets inhabited by hundreds of people. (more…)

Solidarity with Eco-anarchists Sadie & Exile (USA)

Friday, April 13th, 2012

New prison measures vindictively applied against eco-anarchist comrades Sadie & Exile, unrepentant members of the Earth Liberation Front. Letters of solidarity are appreciated by the two wild ones… nothing forgotten, nothing forgiven…

Text by Leslie James Pickering

Earth Liberation prisoners Joyanna “Sadie” Zacher and Nathan “Exile” Block, who are a married couple, have been disallowed correspondence by their captors with the excuse that Sadie is “unrepentant” of her crimes. Sadie and Exile are nearing the end of their seven-year-and-eight-month federal prison sentences for two million-dollar arsons prosecuted under the FBI’s Operation Backfire investigation into the Earth Liberation Front. Specifically, the couple has been convicted of the the $959,000 arson of the Romania Chevrolet dealership on March 30, 2001 and the $994,412 arson of Jefferson Poplar on May 21, 2001. (more…)

Poem for Luca Abba, injured NO TAV activist written by Mapuche poet Rayen Kvyeh (Italy, $hile)

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Luca, brother, friend, comrade

The summer suns burnt out, the rivers of clouds ran wild

The ancestors of our Mapu Nuke inhabiting the mountains and the libertarian spirits sleeping on the peaks of the Val Susa are protecting your sleep.

From deep inside our hearts we raise our chants into the sacred Rewe so that you can recover and go back to your people, the women and men of free thought, who struggle for mother earth, alive and libertarian.

To the comrades of NO TAV, to you whom I have recorded in my memory, for your solidarity, dignity and struggle, our solidarity that springs up from deep inside the roots of araucarias and cinnamon protecting our land.

Luca, brother, friend, comrade

We are with you from across the Andes
And swimming in the oceanic seas
Of peoples’ solidarity.

Rayen Kvyeh (Mapuche poet in the territory occupied by the State of $hile)

Police repression spectacle for Animal Rights Action Weekend – Bristol (UK)

Tuesday, March 6th, 2012

This weekend saw a whole host of ridiculous police repression at the Animal Rights Action Weekend.

On Saturday morning [3.3.12] there was a demonstration at Bristol Airport against Air France KLM, who are one of the few airlines still prepared to ship animals into this country for experimentation. The demonstration consisted of several people with fake blood on, being transported by some pretend KLM staff. After a member of the public supposedly got a small amount of fake blood on their sleeve and lost their temper, the police saw an opportunity to make some ridiculous arrests over claimed criminal damage offences, eventually arresting 6 people. One of the arrests was for assault of a PC after the arresting officer threw the arrestee to the floor and punched the floor next to them, injuring their own hand and blaming the arrestee! (more…)

NO TAV: Solidarity actions in Paris & Lima (France, Peru)

Monday, March 5th, 2012

NO TAV: Gathering and road blocks in Paris, France.

Paris – Saturday 3rd March 2012. About fifty people answered the solidarity call of the NO TAV movement. During the gathering, speeches on the events in Val Susa and the mobilizations all over Italy, then the points of the meetings: what are we going to do besides the solidarity, simple but necessary, with the prisoners; how can we bring the movement to France; what are the links between this movement and us? Followed by policemen in plain clothes at a certain distance, the small group started marching and blocked the traffic in Sebastopol and on Rue de Rivoli, and eventually reached Place du Chalet, where a demo for the Syrian people was being held.

NO TAV – Solidarity from Peru, Italian embassy visited.

On the night of 29th February we visited the Italian embassy in Lima and left there a banner reading: ‘SOLIDARITY WITH THE PEOPLE THAT STRUGGLE FOR THE LAND! NO TAV!’ We also dubbed a ridiculous baroque-like painting on the wall with graffiti. As we were being chased by the watch dogs of power, we disappeared in the darkness.

In this country the struggle is against mines, in Italy it is against the high speed railway. May resistance to the destructive projects of the State and capital go beyond all borders! Against all harmfulness and in defence of the Earth. Self-organization and Direct Action everywhere!

NO TAV – NO CONGA – FREEDOM FOR ALL

Eco-Activists sabotage 'Bardon Aggrigates' Super Quarry (UK)

Friday, March 2nd, 2012

325 receives and transmits:

“Towards the end of last year the super quarry at Bardon Hill in Leictershire was sabotaged. This is the flagship quarry of Bardon Aggrigates, subsiduary of Aggrigate Industries, the company removing mountain tops for roadstone in Glensanda Scotland. Bardon Hill Quarry is a mile across and over quarter of a mile deep, and is removing a hillside that is designated as a SSSI. They are planning to extend this quarry to new areas using over three miles of conveyers to transport the stone. During the week bore holes were dug for the new expansion visitors climbed down into the quarry over night destroying engines and hydraulics, gluing locks, and drilling tires. You could stand in the buckets of the excavators and the wheels of the trucks were over eight feet tall. 3 excavators, 1 bulldozer, and 4 dumper trucks were sabotaged.”

Widespread acts of resistance are taking place across Italy triggered by the near murderous actions of the police in Val Susa.

A summary of the latest events Baita Clarea is an area in Val Susa where works for the implementation of the TAV were due to start soon. On Monday 27th February the forces of order proceeded to evict and expropriate the land in Baita Clarea in order to clear the way for the devastating high speed railway works. On the same day Luca Abba’, a resident of the Val Susa whose land was also expropriated, climbed a pylon in an attempt to block the ongoing military operation. The cops ordered Luca to come down without taking precautions for his safety, pushing him even higher and failing to cut off the electricity of the pylon. As a result, Luca was electrocuted and fell several metres below. (more…)
