“Carta en solidaridad con la compañera Anna” – F.B.I. (Féminas Brujas e Insurreccionalistas)

Saturday, July 13th, 2019

Querida Anna, somos un grupo anárquico informal integrado por mujeres que acciona en México, motivadas por las tesis insurreccionalistas y la ilegalidad anarquista. Nos hemos conformado así por una cuestión de afinidad y no porque creamos que no debemos trabajar con compañeros hombres, de hecho, en diferentes ocasiones nos hemos coordinado con otros grupos de compañeros para accionar de manera más potente. Algunas somos lesbianas, bisexuales, poliamorosas, queers y otras somos tan putas que construiríamos un barco si renacieramos mañana en la Isla de Lesbos por tal de no renunciar a tener sexo con hombres. Lo que esperamos que deje en claro que nuestra “afinidad” no se fundamenta en las preferencias sexuales sino en las ideas que nos impulsan y en la confianza que nos tenemos una a otra en el momento del ataque.

Después de esta aclaración, queremos expresar (pública y abiertamente) nuestra solidaridad contigo, no porque seas mujer ni porque te consideremos “víctima” al encontrarte presa de las garras del Estado sino por tu posicionamiento anárquico en guerra permanente contra el sistema de dominación. ¡Celebramos tu convicción ácrata y tu honesta valentía!

Tus palabras sencillas, reafirmando tu anarquismo sin acotamientos sectoriales y sin caer en la tan desprestigiada corrección política y sus convenciones lingüisticas (“gender-friendly”), nos han tocado en lo más hondo. Por eso no quisimos dejar pasar la oportunidad de darte respuesta pública, evitando que tus ideas y convicciones se pierdan en el mar de cartas, manifiestos y comunicados que circulan en nuestras redes. Esperamos que tu carta 1 y nuestra respuesta inviten a la reflexión a todas las compañeras que en busca de la anarquía han quedado atrapadas en un sucedáneo reformista al servicio de la dominación, inmovilizadas en la “degeneración”, “entre el orgullo y el victimismo de género”, como explicas en tu carta.

Greece: Anarchist Giannis Michailidis has escaped from Tyrintha prison

Tuesday, June 11th, 2019

Grecia: L’anarchico Giannis Michailidis è evaso dal carcere di Tyrintha

The anarchist prisoner Giannis Michailidis [sometimes the name is reported as Yannis and the surname as Mihailidis] escaped a few days ago from the so-called rural prison of Tyrintha (Tiryns), in Peloponnese. He was arrested on 1 February 2013 following the double robbery that took place in Velventos [1] (Kozani region, in Greece), along with the anarchists Nikos Romanos, Dimitris Politis and Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos (for the same facts on 30 April 2013 were also arrested the fugitives anarchists Argyris Dalios, Fivos Harisis, Giannis Naxakis and Grigoris Sarafoudis — not all of them were convicted of robberies). The comrade, before the escape, was serving a sentence of 16 years and 4 months, imposed with the sentence that followed the trial regarding the facts of Velventos. Furthermore, in 2015 he was sentenced to 15 years for charges linked to an attack on the police on May 18, 2011, in Pefki, during a police check (two policemen were wounded and the anarchist Theofilos Mavropoulos was arrested, wounded as well). Giannis is also known as “the archer of Syntagma” since, in February 2011, in the clashes during a general strike, he was arrested for hitting the riot police that protected the Greek parliament in Syntagma Square (Athens) with a bow and arrow.

The police, according to the press, are already investigating the incident.
Long flight for the anarchist Giannis Michailidis!

Updates on the hunger strike of imprisoned anarchists for the closure of the AS2 section of L’Aquila (Italy)

Tuesday, June 4th, 2019

The hunger strike for the closure of the AS2 section [“High Surveillance 2”] of the prison of L’Aquila continues [it was started by the anarchists Anna Beniamino and Silvia Ruggeri on 29 May, 2019].

The anarchists prisoners Salvatore Vespertino, Giovanni Ghezzi, Alfredo Cospito, Marco Bisesti and Luca Dolce also joined the hunger strike.

In our closeness, we will not publish or in any way give space to petitions, telegrams, faxes, mail bombings or any means of civil pressure aimed at emphasizing the current repressive situation; we consider these means not only useless but harmful, counterproductive and objectively enemies of anti-authoritarian thought and action, which unfold in a very different horizon.
