Russia. Khimki forest (north of Moscow). Construction vehicles torched, tree-cutter assaulted, his arm broken.
Unknown activists have torched several construction vehicles and assaulted tree-cutter at the new toll highway construction site in Khimki forest. These news appeared in joint declaration, published by state enterprise “Avtodor” and “North-Eastern concession” (subsidiary of Vinci). The accidents happened on nights of 19.07 and 21.07. “Avtodor” representatives stated that an assault on tree-cutters took place on 19.07: one of the workers tried to prevent eco-activists from entering the construction site. In the following fight his arm broke.
On the night of 21.07 special construction vehicles were torched: several brand new harvesters and hydraulic excavator were completely destroyed by fire. Material damage is estimated to be over $2,000,000.
Earlier the same companies filed a complaint about unknown people opening fire on construction vehicles (supposedly from “Saiga”, a civil 12-mm carbine) and torching workers sheds with molotovs.
Eco-activists present at the site of an eco-camp near the construction site failed to provide police with evidence or ideas about the nature of perpetrators.

The ideas and views expressed by Kaczynski before and after his capture raise crucial issues concerning the evolution and future of our society. For the first time, the reader will have access to an uncensored personal account of his anti-technology philosophy, which goes far beyond Unabomber pop culture mythology. The book includes a corrected edition of the “Unabomber Manifesto,” and Kaczynski’s critique of Anarcho-primitivism, and essays regarding “The Coming Revolution.”
“This book was first published by Editions Xenia under the title The Road to Revolution. Unfortunately, the Xenia edition was riddled with errors, most of which were not my fault. In this second edition, if the publisher has done his work properly, the errors have been corrected and the book has been improved in other ways.
I want to make clear that I have no control over the cover design of this book and no control over the way it is advertised and promoted. I expect it to be advertised and promoted in ways that I will find offensive. Moreover, I do not like the new title of the book.
Nevertheless, I have cooperated in the creation of this new edition and consented to the change of title because I think it is important to make the book available in its present corrected and improved form.”

The Black Fish have been working on the ground in Croatia for several weeks investigating the country’s controversial tuna industry. It was three days ago when our crew members witnessed the slaughter of several tuna fish and decided to intervene. Members of our diving team were able to pass by security and entered the water late at night to free the fish.
Bluefin tuna are one of the world’s largest and fastest fish as well as the most endangered of all tuna species. In recent years the bluefin tuna has been heavily overfished in the Mediterranean Sea to meet the demand for prized sushi, mostly destined for the Asian market. The International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) is the international body tasked with the conservation of bluefin tuna populations but has proven ineffective in its attempts to combat illegal fishing and poaching of the threatened species.

Call for Solidarity with the Malalayang Traditional Fisherfolk’s Struggle Against Coastal Reclamation in Manado (Indonesia)
Wednesday, July 11th, 2012
Coastal Reclamation, a megaproject that began in the early 1990s, continues along the length of Manado Bay. New land is being created in the sea to host big business, such as the establishment of new shopping palaces, the mushrooming of the banking industry, and assorted entertainment spots for the weary workers. The area of new land created in the reclamation zone stretches to thousands of hectares, spread over several major developments.
During the course of this development, there has been sporadic resistance from traditional fisherfolk along the Manado coast. Then in 2009, fisherfolk resisting in different parts of the bay began discussions to create a network of communication and started to show direct solidarity each time a group of fisherfolk was faced with conflict.

These are the pix of the protest-action against a pro-nuke electric power ltd of Kansai electric power (Kanden) on 27 June 2012, Osaka, a western part of Japanese islands. Polizeis and guards, subjects of Kanden prevented our protest as the “loud & noizy voices”. This pro-nuke bastard named “Kanden” will just carry out their evil way with “ok signs” on 16 June 2012 by Jap government. THEY are just interested in making THEIR bloody money. Ja, this selfish decision by pro-nuke bastards is terrible crime for everyone living on this planet. (more…)

On June 11th a booth that provided power to granite quarry in Mikashevichi (Belarus) was burnt by a group of dedicated earth liberation warriors. Resulting short circuit left quarry and nearby village in total darkness. It was a strange feeling to suddenly hear silence where just a minute before there had been constant industrial noise. To see stars in the sky that had been blocked out by quarry lights just moments before.
2 incendiaries (5 liters of gasoline each) were used for this action.
We salute imprisoned Belarus anarchists (Ihar Alinevich, Mikalai Dziadok, Aliaksandr Frantskievich) persecuted for their acts of sabotage against Lukashenko’s regime. This new act of sabotage on territory, occupied by Belarus state, is in your honour.
Words of gratitude to Ted Kaczynski. Your thoughts served as a light-beacon to us in this action.
To every anti-authoritarian and eco-activist: keep fighting, stay strong and free!

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

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).

Solidarity Eco-Camp Documentation Report
Solidarity eco-camp objectifies bonding, sharing, party, play and relaxation. This is our way to address different views, skills and practices in a more libertarian way. 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…)

On 11th April land expropriation in Val Susa was authorized by the law in order to set the yard for the construction of the Turin-Lyon high speed railway track. On the same day the inhabitants of the valley along with many other people coming from all over the country bravely faced the occupation troops and blocked highways and roads in the area. (more…)

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…)

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…)

TODAY LUCA TURNS 37
LET’S CELEBRATE BY INTENSIFYING THE STRUGGLE
TONIGHT IN CHIOMONTE WE ARE GOING TO STRUGGLE ALSO FOR HIM
STRENGTH TO LUCA. NO TAV, NO OCCUPATION TROOPS
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)
