Fire to the Prisons #12 is Available Now!
The new issue of Fire to the Prisons is now completed and available online. Check out the new issue, print your own copies, and view past PDFs at our new website: www.firetotheprisons.org
(NOT TO be confused with .com, which is hosted by unknown sources)
Fire to the Prisons is an insurrectionary periodical. It focuses on promoting a revolutionary solidarity between different struggles, prisoners, and existing social tensions that challenge capitalism and the state.
We made 10,000 copies of this issue because we wanted to get them as far and wide as possible. In order to create a publication for free to comrades and the general discontented public, we have forfeited our traditional magazine form and went with a less costly newspaper. We hope to spread this as far as it can go. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into this project and we hope that it shows. (more…)

Vegan queer insurrectionary straight-edge anarchist zine from USA
Sunday, February 1st, 2015
Those who identify as Christian, Muslim, Jewish, seem to be the endless provokers of the world. Their sick delusions have brought all history to perpetual ongoing insanity and war. Isn’t it time we ended their thousands of years of petulant vanity?
They are the creators of terror and genocidal fixation, of exploitation and murder.
Vitality repressed and oppressing; burn their books, places of ‘worship’ and disperse them. Our flag is black and all colours return to it.
There is no Mohammed, no Jesus, no Abraham. They are nothing but shades and projections, and as they live as ghosts in the imagination of men, so it is necessary to attack them. A fire deep into the silhouette of their misery will obliterate their shadow. The illumination of death reaches their innermost core, for their currency is anti-life, yet the abyss will be their only future. Let not even a trace of a memory of them remain left on the Earth. For they are the people of the Book and the enemies of liberty and freedom; Slaves of a blind idiot god.
The rivers know nothing of religion, nor do the mountains, nor the oceans. Neither any single wild creature on Earth or wild untamed place. Yet all are claimed as the possession of men and God. Possession is what has brought the entire planet and all species into danger.
‘Culture’ is another word for conformity and obsession, intolerance and status quo.
Fuck your ‘culture’, your ‘religion’, your ‘race’ and your ‘nation’.
Wipe out the Koran
Wipe out the Talmud
Wipe out the Old and New Testaments
Morning of the fall of the stars, the ascent of individuals.

325 receives and transmits:
Nihilist-anarchist solidarity freesheet 1st issue with articles highlighting an animal testing congress in Scotland in March 2015; against fracking; against anthropocentric values; about Glasgow Anarchist Black Cross.
This periodical bulletin exists to widen the current of a nihilist-anarchist critique in Scotland and whatever that may bring. It is your sole responsibility to steal back your life. However, if you are content with shitty food, mundane shopping, police surveillance, civility, boredom and a slow death from cancer and pollution, then perhaps this publication is not for you… We do not care for “recruits”
nor do we seek to seem reasonable in the eyes of anyone. – Until next time (A)

325 receives and transmits the electronic version of the latest issue of Return Fire. The zine, from Spring 2014, builds on the green anarchist themes from the last issue and compiles a diverse range of topics.
Here’s the online version of Return Fire vol.2, dated Spring 2014. [See 325.nostate.net/?p=8753 for vol.1] Many events have interfered with the PDF being released sooner, but we’re happy to present another collage of rebellion and anarchy for folks to pick through and hopefully discuss to aid in their struggles.
We’re considering bringing out a third volume in a smaller time frame to cover some of the events we’ve missed since the spring.
Inside these pages, there’s a mix of news, analysis, artwork, plant profiles and more; some of which are editorial, some other comrades’ recent work as well as our own translations, and some the usual reprints.
For example, ‘I Didn’t Want to be a Proud Worker’ is Gabriel Pombo Da Silva’s reminiscence on generous illegality, which appeared as an introduction to the French edition of Huye, Hombre, Huye by Xosé Tarrío González. ‘The Essence of Modern Schooling’ follows the development of the domesticating “education” principle in industrial society by Jan D. Matthews. Plan for Europe’s Biggest Children’s Prison is coverage from the U.K.’s latest counter-information page In The Belly of the Beast, while L’Amour Civilisé, exposing the impoverished social role of coupledom, is out of the journal La Mauvaise Herbe.
This time the Poems for Love, Loss & War are from such insurgents, iconoclasts and adventurers as Kelly Pflug-Back, ‘Eat’, Ron Sakolsky, and Biófilo Panclasta. Rebels Behind Bars features court case news, updates on police crackdowns, and prison letters on topics from psychiatric incarceration to animal liberation, from the Mayday tradition to State surveillance.
We compiled a smattering of Global Flash-Points in riots, sabotage and other direct action during the last part of 2013 and beginning of 2014, and some more or less recent historical legacies in Memory as a Weapon; the siege of Sidney Street in 1910’s London and the multi-lingual Dandelion news-sheet’s piece on migrant revolt in Europe following the so-called “Arab Spring”.
In ‘Gravediggers of Society’, some destructive queers review Lee Edelman’s theory next to that of Guy Hocquenghem (also passing by Jacques Camatte), found in the first issue of Bædan and transcribed.
Let this be our contribution to the multi-form front against civilisation and authority, and especially to the month-long mobilisation this December called by Chilean anarchists (to commemorate and agitate around the death of Sebastián Oversluij and capture of Tamara Sol Vergara).
Look out for the hard-copy version in the U.K.

Democracy justifies itself by principles which, though they are repeated a thousand times, do not become true, but have become so internalised that even its opponents believe in them. The popular idea of the goodness of this regime has become so ingrained and immobile that change appears impossible, no one now proposes any other forms of organisation, or even other forms of living.
To us the daughters of democracy, they have told us that this is the best of all regimes, our parents and grandparents lived under a system where coercion and repression were more direct, and now that things are gentler, we are obliged from birth to accept it. How is it that we are becoming a generation more impoverished than those before, without going through a war? Because of a situation that is imposed by this system as inevitable.
The free association in which democracy is said to be based is nothing of the sort, because from birth we are obliged to belong to this regime without being allowed to choose other forms of life. We do not associate freely within educational institutions because other ways of learning are made illegal, we do not associate freely within work because we do not control what we produce, nor the time clock, nor do we have the capacity to organise ourselves together with companions.
Universal suffrage, a concept that throughout history has been praised as a victory for increasingly greater parts of the population, puts itself in question. They have always told us that the vote is free when in reality it is a limited choice, because consciousness is not free, it is subject to the propaganda of the regime and the culture defended by the groups in power. It also denies freedom by reducing it to no more than giving an opinion, “yes” or “no” or on what party is going to govern, denying us the possibility to develop other proposals for living together. And because it is anonymous, is there no freedom of expression?
In democracy we give up our interests, the satisfaction of our needs and the organisation of human relations and of life, into the hands of others. By means of the vote we supposedly choose those who can better represent our interests, but here we collide with reality: the political parties defend their own interests in accordance with the rules they themselves have established, they seek to accumulate levels of economic and political power in order to maintain their domination and influence on the rest of society.

Fuera de las leyes de la dialéctica, la negación consiste en un método
individual de confrontar algo negando su existencia, su influencia o su
control sobre el individuo. Pero, negar la autoridad no significa
simplemente negarla y punto, significa ante todo desarrollar a partir de
esa negación de la autoridad un proyecto individual (o colectivo)
antiautoritario. No es suficiente con negar algo y conformarse con ello,
sobre la práctica hay que superar eso que negamos. Si negamos al Estado
no es suficiente con afirmar su inexistencia, que ya no pesa sobre
nuestra propia persona. Negar al Estado significa desarrollar a partir
de esa negación, un proyecto de destrucción del Estado y por consecuente
una manera de vivir que supere al Estado. En contra cara a las tesis
hegelianas sobre la negación, nuestra nueva realidad o nuestra utopía,
no contiene aspectos “positivos” de lo pasado, para nosotros este
presente no es portador de ningún aspecto positivo. Eso nuevo que
supera a lo viejo no es una materialización que se da necesariamente
después de la destrucción del Estado en su sentido maximizado, es algo
que aflora día con día, que aflora en este mismo presente, en el aquí y
ahora negando lo que nos oprime, superándolo y destruyéndolo, por lo
tanto, no arrastrando viejos esquemas de autoridad. (more…)

(Por: Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras)
Un punto de cruce en los caminos de la insurrección permanente.
Entre quienes identifican al poder como enemigo en la lucha por la
liberación total y dotan sus pasos de una proyección que lxs conecta con
otrxs compañerxs, el cruce de caminos entre guerrerxs de distintos
territorios tarde o temprano aparece.
Se nutre así una identificación fraterna con otrxs que, en palabras y
actos, ven la vida y la lucha anárquica de un modo afín al nuestro,
estableciéndose un diálogo entre realidades que aun siendo diversas
comparten un mismo deseo de libertad junto a una disposición presente
por atacar al poder en pos de su completa destrucción. (more…)

Potenciando el Fuego…
(A modo de editorial)
Este grito de guerra anárquico, traducido al papel, a una revista, pretende ser un aporte más en la circulación de ideas que nutran el debate y alimenten la tensión y las reflexiones entre compañerxs de praxis antiautoritaria.
Buscamos contribuir a conectar las diversas voluntades de lucha, potenciando el intercambio y la retroalimentación de ideas/valores entre compañerxs, desbordando así los vínculos y relaciones específicas, buscando de esta manera desbordar el amiguismo y conectarnos desde las complicidades en la lucha.

ABC Hurricane are pleased to publish a compilation of some of the writings of John Bowden. They provide a rare insight and history of the prison regime and bring to light cases and stories that normally never see the light of day, but are unfortunately all too common behind prison walls.
Posing no threat to anyone inside or outside prison (according to the Parole Board), the Prison Service is keeping John behind bars due to his continuing work exposing the abuses of the prison system – not just to himself but throughout HMP wings and especially in the darkest, hushed up corners of UK gaols. He has never backed down in the face of all that the regime can throw.
This publication comes at a time when he is calling again for as much pressure to be imposed on the prison authorities in the fight for his release – please spread these texts far and wide. Please get in touch by email if you would like printed copies.
