London: Demo against the far right – Oct 13 (UK)

September 15th, 2018

A coalition of groups including London Antifascists have made a call-out for a unity demonstration against the far right Democratic Football Lads Alliance (DFLA). The far right have proved themselves to be a resurgent threat this year, mobilising a 20,000 strong rally in central London in June and have attacked trade unionists, people of colour and left wing bookshops. Left unchecked they are sure to repeat these outrageous attacks.

Antifascists have started to come together to counter this new threat. In July a militant bloc of around 500 antifascists came together to oppose a #FreeTommy demonstration. Look out for ways you can get involved in building a mass antifascist movement in the coming weeks.

If you are in London please save the date and join the demonstration. If you are outside of London consider organising transport for your friends and comrades. Meet up point TBA.

Who is Arturo Vasquez, a Paralegal or an Eco-Extremist Mafia? (USA)

September 15th, 2018

Arturo Vasquez (Atassa)

Arturo Vasquez
418 Westwood Dr.
Mandeville, LA 70471
Telephone: (831) 637-0339

ES: ¿Quién es Arturo Vasquez, un asistente legal o uno de la “Mafia Eco-Extremista”?
BAHASA: Mengungkap Art Cabrera! (Mengungkap Gereja ITS bag i)
DE: Wer ist Arturo Vasquez? Ein Anwaltsassistent oder ein Oeko-Extremist?

Let’s help pull back the curtain on the so-called “Eco-Extremist Mafia” and expose them a bit more with the aid of our contacts. Tracking and collecting information on our authoritarian, fascist, reactionary and irrationalist enemies is part of our activities as anarchists. This “Mafia” have said they have been hiding in the shadows for a long time, but possibly this one has been hiding in the broom cupboard with the envelopes, papers, pens and computers.

“Art Cabrera” is Arturo Vasquez. Who is “Art Cabrera”? That is the editor of the eco-fascist journal Atassa, which is the English language mouth-piece of the Church of ITS Mexico, ‘Individualists Tending Toward the Wild’.

Vasquez, a piece of trash who is responsible for translating and spreading so-called ‘Eco-Extremism’ from the United States, is trying to advance his reactionary doctrine whilst living a completely fake and inauthentic double-life. We are happy to publish his real name, photo and workplace contact details to cause him problems, minor or major. Since Vasquez has always been very glad to serve the Church of Eco-Extremism, instigated death threats against our anarchist comrades and is believing he is untouchable, we take great delight in doxxing him. This is the company he works for in his real life, not the fantasy one where he is the boss of the “Eco-Extremist Mafia” in America:

https://www.david-ware.com/About-Our-Paralegals.shtml

Maybe some of the anti-fascist and anarchist comrades in America would like to contact his workplace and his wife to warn her that he is a dangerous member of the “Eco-Extremist Mafia”, all their contact details are to be found there.

Arturo is a paralegal in his day job. If he isn’t fully lying, his day job is supposed to be legal work for migrants, but he claims he voted for Trump. Considering the infusion of corporate espionage these days, it’s just as probable that a troll like Arturo might just as well be a corporate spy, as a deluded fantasist authoritarian. According to the workplace website of his real life, Vasquez graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a Bachelor’s Degree in Latin American Studies, and he works primarily in the area of employment-based immigration law. It also mentions that Vasquez spent considerable time in both Mexico and Argentina, and is fluent in Spanish, which certainly fits the picture of a Berkeley University graduate who travelled abroad and thinks himself rather clever.

That this simple-looking, ugly, bald, fat-necked Catholic asshole has convinced quite a few supposedly radical ‘anarchists’ and ‘nihilists’ to join the Choir of the ITS is hilarious, more fool them. This is who Aragorn and LBC is willing to get into bed with just to irresponsibly try to stir shit up. Arturo Vasquez is a fucking loser and should be used as target practice. Shot, stabbed, beaten, burned, whatever. Come to Europe, Arturo, on a speaking tour and promote your book, let’s see what will happen to you. May there be some willing anarchists of praxis near-by who will put you out of your misery, you misanthropic waste.

And, as what most of us suspected to be true, the editor of Atassa is a Catholic, ex-Liberation Theologist, with a Marxist back-story. Arturo’s wife works for the same Legal firm, her name is Anitra. Apparently, neither Anitra nor Vasquez’s kids know about his online eco-fascist “Mafia“ life at all. Anitra studied Biomedical Engineering in Texas A&M University and has a doctorate in Neurobiology from the University of Chicago. Are they not similar studies to those ITS targeted in Mexico?

Maybe Arturo wants his wife dead, raped or maimed too in his secret life.

Arturo, maybe it’s time to tell your wife Anitra and your kids that you believe in rape culture, femicide, and indiscriminate terror in the name of your newest religious concept, Wild Nature. Or does Anitra already know you had a ‘Wild Nature’, a Janus? Is there something else that also is as two-faced and inauthentic in Arturo’s inner life that expresses itself in a life lived in deceit? Let’s find out.

Thank you to our source.

‘Laughing darkly’ by L (UK)

September 14th, 2018

Short amusing note from an exchange.

… About the Archegonas, Archie the Robot, we are really laughing that there is ‘comrades’ stupid enough to print his material still, despite what has happened. I guess they really like what he has to say about being a vegan.

We were laughing darkly about that fanatical ITS claim in Edinburgh and this ridiculous text of his where he accuses us of being ‘tough bitches’. It’s so anti-female, after his fragile ego was spurned by us, he reveals in this ITS claim from Edinburgh a real hatred of his mother too. It’s delirious, he proclaims himself Satan. Haha. …

What has become of the so-called eco-extremist curse? All this time to come and hunt us down and they spend their time still being a joke?!

L.

“I think it is vitally important to position yourself in front of the enemy, even if they give you a nod to anti-authoritarian ideas, as ITS did in the first moment.”

“ … as I mentioned before, you have to start an offensive with them, ITS, and also against the old enemies, the capital, authority and the State.” Instinto Salvaje.

Arman Sagynbayev: I Was Tortured by the FSB (Russia)

September 13th, 2018

“Two Wires Came Out of the Box”: Penza-Petersburg “Terrorism” Case Suspect Arman Sagybayev Says FSB Tortured Him with Electrical Shocks in Minivan

Antifascist and anarchist Arman Sagynbayev, who was arrested and remanded in custody as part of the Penza-Petersburg “terrorism” case, had until recently admitted his guilt. On September 4, he withdrew his confession, explaining that initially he had been tortured into testifying against himself and other young men arrested in the case, and then had been afraid to go against case investigators. His defense counsel has sent a statement to the Russian Federal Investigative Committee. Mediazona has published Sagynbayev’s deposition to his lawyer, in which Sagynbayev recounts how FSB field agents tortured him after detaining him in Petersburg.

In November 2017, officers of the Russian FSB [Federal Security Service] used unlawful investigative methodw (torture) against me. The circumstances were as follows.

On 5 November 2017, at approximately six o’clock in the morning, the doorbell of an apartment at [omitted] in St. Petersburg, where I was located at the time, rang. I opened the door, since when I had asked who was there, I was told the neighborhood beat cop was at the door. As soon as I opened the door, at least four men burst into the apartment. They yelled that they were from the FSB. They pushed a weapon (pistol) into my face before making me face the wall and handcuffing me with my hands behind my back. The men searched the apartment.

7mo Encuentro del Libro y la Propaganda Anarquista de Santiago – Chile

September 12th, 2018

Hemos transitado un largo camino desde las primeras banderas negras que reaparecieron al final de la dictadura, en medio de barricadas y el posterior acomodamiento de una sociedad ciudadanista que se dejó arrastrar por falsas promesas de la alegría democrática, mientras los aparatos represivos aniquilaban la resistencia continuando fieles la trayectoria sangrienta del estado; tomamos como herramientas parte de ese arrojo, más artesanal, y lo mezclamos con la contracultura punk y apostamos por la actitud rebelde, el hazlo tú mismo y nos expandimos en una serie de experiencias y de pronto las balas nos llegaron a nosotrxs, mataron a la Claudia y aunque no era ella anarquista, ¿tanto importa?

EN/ES – Anarchist comrades Kevin Garrido and Joaquin Garcia sentenced to long terms (Chile)

September 9th, 2018

Finally, last Wednesday, September 5, was the reading of the sentences against comrades Kevin and Joaquin, these sentences can be appealed, but for the moment it is unknown what actions their lawyers will carry out.

The sentences were as follows:

KEVIN GARRIDO FERNÁNDEZ: 17 years of prison in maximum security, for possession of explosives and the placement and possession of explosive devices. In addition, sentenced to 61 days in minimum degree for illegal possession of a bladed weapon.

JOAQUÍN GARCÍA CHANKS: 10 years of prison in medium security, for placing explosive devices and a 3-year prison term in maximum security for the crime of illegally carrying a firearm.

For the moment this is what we can tell, as soon as we have more information we will update on the situation of the comrades. We make a call to demonstrate solidarity in the face of the prison sentences dictated against Kevin and Joaquín. No sentence against our comrades should be left without an answer.

SOLIDARITY AND STRUGGLE!

INSURRECTION AND ANARCHY!

FREEDOM TO KEVIN AND JOAQUIN NOW!

CHILE: SENTENCIAN A 17 AÑOS A KEVIN GARRIDO Y 13 AÑOS A JOAQUÍN GARCÍA

Finalmente el pasado miércoles 5 de Septiembre se realizó la lectura de las sentencias contra los compañeros Kevin y Joaquín, estas condenas pueden ser apeladas, por el momento se desconoce el accionar a llevar a cabo por lxs abogadxs.

Las sentencias fueron las siguientes:

KEVIN GARRIDO FERNÁNDEZ: a 17 años de presidio mayor en su grado máximo como autor de los delitos de colocación de artefacto explosivo y posesión y tenencia de explosión. Además de 61 días de presidio menor en su grado mínimo por porte ilegal de arma punzante.

JOAQUÍN GARCÍA CHANKS: a 10 años de presidio mayor en su grado medio por colocación de artefactos explosivos y a 3 años de presidio mayor en su grado máximo por el delito de porte ilegal de armas de fuego.

No to the Trans Adriatic Pipeline, to block everything! (Italy)

September 6th, 2018

For a few years now the TAP question has jumped to the headlines.

Precisely since 2013, the TAP consortium was chosen to carry out the construction of a gas pipeline through Turkey, Greece, Albania, the Adriatic Sea right to Italy, with Salento as its final destination so that it could be linked to another gas pipeline, the TANAP, which joins Turkey with Azerbaijan (where natural gas fields are to be found), and finally become SNAM, going up through the Italian Apennines, the so-called ‘Adriatic network’ – up to Austria.

Thousands of kilometres of pipelines, gas pressurization and depressurization plants, thrust wells, micro tunnels to link the mainland and the sea, optic fibres cables along the whole route, construction sites that will destroy landscape and local environments, high risk of accidents and explosions, air pollution, heavy vehicles on the roads for years to come, exponential increase of police forces, industrial transformation of the economy of a whole area and consequent loss of all choices for the people who live there. An example of this is ILVA in Taranto, a few kilometres from Lecce and Melendugno, where the gas pipeline will arrive. Read the rest of this entry »

Berlin: War on the war! Fire for DGAP – German Society for Foreign Politics (Germany)

September 2nd, 2018

With this we take responsibility for the incendiary device we placed in front of the building of the German Society for Foreign Politics (DGAP) in Drake-/Rauchstraße (Tiergarten) in the night of 21.8.18.

13 litres of a petrol-oil-mixture shall be the beginning of putting an end to the undisturbed and fearless existence of the DGAP as a political advisor of the German war society.

Since the beginning of this year increased attacks against the war industry, their profiteers and financiers take and took place over all the German controlled territory. We join these attacks and let the fire speak from our side. War starts here! War on the war!

War starts here, in the halls of politics. War starts everywhere, where people throw away their empathy, to profit from the globalized misery. In the war-industry, the thinktanks of science, in the faceless administration of bureaucracy, in the form of uniformed slaves, who receive and obey orders in rank and file. War starts between human beings, when concurrence and aspiration to power reigns over solidarity and the free development of the individual.

German Security – Profit through war

Through the choice of the DGAP as the target of our incendiary device we declare the ideological architects of German-European hegemonic politics, the scientists and forerunners of a security paradigm which works with as well as alongside of warmongers and in this way are our enemies. What they declare about security is not ours. Their foreign policy is a policy of order. And their order needs tanks against uprisings and frigates against inflatable dinghies, it builds fences against the suppressed and works continuously to extend their ongoing misery.

Not Ideological Solidarity but Critical Revolutionary Solidarity: A Personal Reflection of Yogyakarta/Indonesia Anarchist Black Cross

August 30th, 2018

Not Ideological Solidarity but Critical Revolutionary Solidarity: A Personal Reflection of Yogyakarta/Indonesia Anarchist Black Cross (Palang Hitam)

Knowledge chooses its project,
each project is new and chooses its moments,
each moment is new, but simultaneously emerges from
the memory of all the moments that existed before

The Interior of the Absolute

It is fair to say that the Black Cross were initiated after the May Day event in Yogyakarta 2018, a demonstration/blockades that ended up in a riot between the so-called “local people” and the demonstrators (many, even the so-called Student Organization involved in the organizing blamed the Black Clad anarchists for igniting the riot and provoked property destruction, and to their surprised the graffiti that call to “Kill the Sultan”, until now there have been no one claimed this). Therefore, even Palang Hitam now are progressing their activities to other places and helping other revolutionaries who are facing the same legal consequences or just being in the grassroots conflict to provide medical aid, its “over-lapping” solidarity still meant that Palang Hitam were originated, initiated, and activated by the comrades who are “on the list” (of the powers that be) and those who are completely not on the list but decided to actively participated. So, in order to specified the location of these comrades, mainly central java, it is fair to say that Palang Hitam is Palang Hitam Yogyakarta or Central Java.

What being said in this short critical reflection are based on specific geographical and historical understanding of the anarchist movement or the revolutionary movement of individuals against state and capitalism in Indonesia. There’s no need to say about the contrast between our geographical location and our comrades in the west and those who are also in the global south, especially considering prison solidarity in its historic sense. Indonesia, have plenty of oral history about prison rebellion and rebellious individuals, but these were almost never written, these were almost like mythopoesis among criminals for generation and some even become so legendary that it always inspired rebellion each time there’s a prisoner get beaten very severely or until they die. It is obvious there’s almost no official history of them because, who want to write about these violent, lawless, and cool individuals? Even the so-called radical academics tend to avoid this subject. Read the rest of this entry »

Resistance of Taman Sari residents about Eviction and information on conflicts area (Indonesia)

August 30th, 2018

From ABC Indonesia:

At present, Taman Sari residents are facing evictions carried out by the Bandung city government. Previously there were clashes which caused one backhoe to be burned by residents and students of Bandung. The clash resumed in front of the Bandung Mayor’s Office, between a mass of activists and police who were repressive towards demonstrators. A third warning letter has been issued and the final eviction was announced to be held today, Monday, August 27, 2018. Anti-authoritarian activist and citizen are building barricades and gathering as many mobs as possible. The Indonesian Human Rights Commission has going to the location of the conflict today, and gave an ultimatum of mediation within three days. Outside of the three days, the possibility of open clashes will occur.

We call for international solidarity for the struggle of Taman Sari, Bandung, as well as at various other points of conflict in Indonesia such as Kulon Progo, Yogyakarta about New Yogyakarta International Airport (NYIA) and Bara-Baraya, Makassar.

Surely our Palang Hitam Indonesia / Indonesian Anarchist Black Cross is trying to help them in every conflict area!

Spread our words. Let the world know we are fighting too. Long live international solidarity!
