Text read in solidarity to anarchists under trial following Scripta Manent operation (Italy)

Sunday, February 24th, 2019

[Below in French and Italian / Sotto in francese ed italiano].

Text read in solidarity to anarchists under trial following Scripta Manent operation.

On Monday 11 February in the bunker hall of the Turin prison a large group of comrades expressed their solidarity with the anarchists on trial following the “Scripta manent” operation (6.09.2016). Roberto Sparagna (the public prosecutor in the trial) was unable to take a word to formulate his indictment. After several slogans and the reading of the following text, the Court interrupted the hearing. The courtroom was evicted through the intervention of the riot squads. During the protest, solidarity was expressed to all the anarchists arrested and on trial during this period, following the repressive operations “Scripta Manent”, “Panico” and “Scintilla”, and against the eviction of Asilo Occupato in Turin.

Freedom for all prisoners! Long live anarchy!

(Argentina) Actividad de presentación de revista realizada por compañerxs en prisión

Friday, February 22nd, 2019

Saludamos y alentamos la iniciativa de lxs compañerxs que aun
transitando una situación de encierro deciden sacar estas páginas a las calles. Páginas cargadas de experiencias, anécdotas y reflexiones que a su vez son parte de un recorrido salvaje que con sus errores, contradicciones y aprendizajes nos demuestran que la lucha no termina en el cautiverio, por el contrario, ella prevalece como una de las múltiples acciones que dan vida a la ofensiva contra el poder, por encima de todos los pronósticos y aun en un terreno con total adversidad.

¡¡¡ Adelante compañerxs, el abismo no nos detiene, decididxs vamos en busca de la libertad absoluta !!!

Solidarity Fund for imprisoned and persecuted Revolutionaries from Greece – Firefund

Sunday, February 17th, 2019

Solidarity fund for imprisoned and persecuted militants is a structure from Greece, which for the past 9 years has been actively organizing the political, ethical and material support of imprisoned and persecuted revolutionaries. Due to the immense amount of money we have to collect and send _each month_ to the imprisoned comrades in order to cover their needs inside the prisons, and thus the tough financial situation we’re facing, we decided to use the firefund platform.

Firefund is an online crowdsourcing platform, run by activists, in order to fund radical causes. You can donate safely either by using credit card or with cryptocurrency (ether). Also if you want you can choose to contribute an amount to the team that administrates the platform.

The link of our campaign is this: https://www.firefund.net/prisonsoli

You can find more info about us and why we choose to use firefund in the link.

The contribution of each and every one who wants to help our cause is ESSENTIAL. While we also believe that it’s rather important to forward this initiative to anyone with whom we may not have contact with. To any comrade/collective who stand with solidarity against oppression.

Palabras del compañero Joaquín García en prision (Chile)

Thursday, December 27th, 2018

“Antes, oh astro, matinal brillabas sobre los Vivos. Ahora, al extinguirte, vespertino brillas sobre los Muertos”
-Platón-

“Murió Adonaïs y por su muerte lloro.
Llorad por Adonaïs, aunque las lágrimas
no deshagan la escarcha que les cubre.
Y tú, su hora fatal, la que, entre todas,
fuiste elegida para nuestro daño,
despierta a tus oscuras compañeras,
muéstrales tu tristeza y di: conmigo
murió Adonaïs, y en tanto que el futuro
a olvidar al pasado no se atreva,
perdurarán su fama y su destino
como una luz y un eco eternamente”

-P.B. Shelley-

Quería escribirle a un tú ausente, tal vez inexistente; pensaba contribuir a las palabras de Shelley y darle vida a esta hermosa elegía, pero nunca le he escrito a un muerto y esta no será la excepción.

Cae sobre mí una falsa responsabilidad; muchos, consciente o inconscientemente, creen que nosotros, sus compañeros, poseemos el derecho o la autoridad de decir quien fue realmente nuestro hermano, y la verdad es que es una tarea imposible, tanto porque dicho derecho no existe, como por la complejidad que supone escribir en palabras sobre nuestro compañero; tal vez podríamos, como aquel alemán, destruir a martillazos la imagen que de él se ha construido. Es difícil comprender la falta de vergüenza de quienes revindican el nombre de Kevin, aun tal vez sin nunca haberlo leído/conocido, han acomodado a su interés la imagen del nuevo mártir, ni siquiera hace falta preguntarse cuantos realmente estuvieron, no hace falta porque aquí no existe ni existió nunca la mendicidad, la misericordia le pertenece a las víctimas y quien murió fue un guerrero: como bien lo recordó un hermano; “Él era solo él, Kevin contra el mundo”.

Comunicado de Marcelo Villarroel Sepúlveda a 5 años de la muerte en combate del compañero Sebastián Oversluij Seguel (Chile)

Wednesday, December 26th, 2018

Nota: Palabras leídas en actividad conmemorativa por el -Angry- en la Biblioteca Antiautoritaria Sebastián Oversluij ubicada en algún lugar de Santiago de Chile el 23/12/2018.

“Al ke roba porke no tiene komida va a dar kon sus huesos a la kárcel de por vida… Al ke si tiene komida pero odia a los bankeros y les roba el dinero ke reparte entre sus kompañerxs”. (Kanción de Rap)

En la kárcel y en la kalle la memoria sin axión kotidiana es komo un kuerpo sin alma, komo un kúmulo de palabras vacías ke se usan sin darle koherencia real a nuestras konvixiones antagónikas… Por ello la importancia esencial de mantener vivxs entre nosotrxs a todxs nuestrxs hermanxs ke han kaído en la lucha direkta y frontal kontra el Poder, el Dominio y toda Autoridad.

Palabras del compañero Marcelo Villarroel Sepúlveda para Almuerzo Solidario

Monday, December 17th, 2018

Desde la kárcel de alta seguridad hago llegar estas palabras de saludo en Resistencia para este encuentro de Solidaridad Antikarcelaria en donde konfluyen la konciencia aktiva de lucha kontra el poder y la insistencia en la konstruxión kolektiva de una memoria antiautoritaria ke no olvida a sus presxs, kaídxs y a todxs kienes no renuncian ni abandonan el konflikto por la liberación total.

Los tiempos son de lucha konstante, de definiciones permanentes en kuanto a nuestra existencia komo individuxs ke nos rebelamos frente a lo existente. El miedo y la indolencia, el oportunismo, el silencio y olvido no pueden ganar terreno entre kienes entregan lo mejor de sus días kombatiendo la totalidad de la oferta de vida ciudadana ke nos impone la democracia, el estado y el kapital.

La kárcel, komo destino posible para kienes se rebelan, es un espacio ke el poder usa para intentar domestikar, a lxs de espíritu libre e indómito. No hay lugar de encierro trankilo, ni kárcel buena, no hay nada en estos lugares ke se pueda replikar salvo la voluntad de Resistir toda la estruktura podrida de cemento y metal penitenciario.

At the hearing on 14th November a calendar of future hearings was once again announced after the expert appointed by the court to transcribe phone tapping asked for more time, obtained a 60-day extension and a second expert was also appointed. The prosecutor made it known that the judicial police had forgotten to deliver a CD audio and asked for an extension of the custody measures, but for the moment a calendar was set out complying with the length of custody… which is due to expire at the end of February (taking account of the 30/35 hearings till now, from mid-January the deadline slides to 18th February, plus some more days considering the hearings due in January). During the hearing of 14th, a DNA expert appointed by the court following Capra (DNA expert for the defence)’s report, gave his statement; the expert for the defence had challenged the reliability of the old report in several points.

Berlin: Auf zur “Freiheit für Musa Asoglu”-Demo nach Hamburg (Deutschland)

Tuesday, December 11th, 2018

Deutsch | Arabisch | Türkisch | Farsi | Englisch

Hallo liebe Freund*innen,

wir möchten am Samstag, den 15. Dezember 2018, gemeinsam von Berlin aus
zur “Freiheit für Musa Aşoğlu”-Demo nach Hamburg fahren. Hierzu treffen
wir uns am 15. Dezember um 7.30 Uhr am Ostbahnhof, Gleis 7. Wir besorgen
uns zusammen Wochenendtickets. Der Zug fährt dann um 7.52 Uhr ab. Wir
wären dann pünktlich in Hamburg, wo die Demo um 12 Uhr vor der Roten
Flora beginnen soll. Im Anschluss an die Demo würden wir gemeinsam
wieder zurück nach Berlin reisen.

Musa Aşoğlu wurde am 2. Dezember 2016 verhaftet und befindet sich
seitdem in Hamburg in Isolationshaft. Ihm wird nach §129b
(Mitgliedschaft in einer verbotenen terroristischen Vereinigung)
vorgeworfen, Mitglied der in der Türkei kämpfenden DHKP-C (Revolutionäre
Volksbefreiungspartei-Front) zu sein. Dass Oppositionelle in der Türkei
verfolgt, gefoltert und ermordet werden, stört die BRD in keinster Weise
– ist er doch enger Verbündeter und politischer Stabilidsator des immer
offener faschistisch agierenden Regimes in der Türkei.

Der §129b-Prozess gegen Musa Aşoğlu dauert seit dem 25. Januar 2018 an
und wir gehen davon aus, dass dieser im Frühjahr 2019 enden könnte.

Wir möchten Musa Aşoğlu und alle §129b-Gefangenen durch unsere
Teiilnahme an der Demo supporten. Schließt euch uns an. (more…)

Russia: Network Case Suspects Go on Hunger Strike

Network Case Suspects Go on Hunger Strike
OVD Info
December 2, 2018

Dmitry Pchelintsev and Andrei Chernov, residents of Penza and suspects in the so-called Network case, have gone on hunger strike, claiming remand prison officials and FSB officers have intimidated them during their review of their criminal case file, something to which they are entitled by Russian law. Several Penza suspects in the case have claimed they have been put in solitary confinement, handcuffed to radiators, and threatened with violence.

Pchelintsev and Chernov went on hunger strike on November 29, as reported by the Parents Network, a support group established by the mothers and fathers of the young men, who have been accused of involvement in a “terrorist community” that, allegedly, was planning an armed uprising during the March 2018 presidential election and 2018 FIFA World Cup, held in Russia this past summer.

It was on November 29 that wardens put Pchelintsev in solitary, demanding he admit to breaking the rules by talking with other inmates during yard time. He responded by going on hunger strike, and Chernov joined him as a token of support and solidarity. On November 30, wardens again tried to bargain with Pchelintsev and threaten him. (more…)

Greece: Update on the Fourth Trial of Revolutionary Struggle

Thursday, December 6th, 2018

On Monday 03.12.18 at 9AM, the 4th trial of Revolutionary Struggle continues in the Korydallos Prison Court for cases of ‘theft’ attributable to the organization with the employees of banks appearing as witnesses.

The prosecution have combined around 9 cases of bank expropriation (dating from 2008-2015) carried out by Revolutionary Struggle with the aim of depoliticizing the organization and deconstructing their actions by adding additional charges and convictions.

Revolutionary Struggle members Pola Roupa and Nikos Maziotis have previously assumed political responsibility for the bank expropriations that were carried out to finance and continue the actions of the organization.

In this trial, those who are accused of involvement or are being investigated for the expropriations are accused of violating Article 187P.K for membership of a criminal organization as well as 187A for financing a criminal organization. Those being accused and judged in the first instance are: N. Maziotis – member of Revolutionary Struggle, Maria Theofilou, G. Petrakakos, Themistocles and Fotis Assimakapolulos, Marios Seisidis, Kostas Sakkas, Panagiotis Argyros, Grigoris Tsironis and Spyros Christodoulou (During an EKAM / Special Counter-Terrorist Unit operation, Spyros Dravillas shot and killed himself before he could be arrested. Spyros Christodoulou, G. Petrakakos and Grigoris Tsironis were arrested during the same operation).

The next hearing is scheduled for 12.12.18.
