International Week of Anti-Fascist Agitation and Propaganda (1-8 Sept)

August 29th, 2018

international_week
ES – SEMANA INTERNACIONAL DE AGITACIÓN Y PROPAGANDA ANTIFASCISTA

INTERNATIONAL WEEK OF ANTI-FASCIST AGITATION AND PROPAGANDA

Call for a week of anti-fascist agitation and propaganda, due to the growth and visibility that far-right groups have achieved in recent times which has reached into spaces in the mainstream media, in neighborhoods and in bourgeois politics.

Because of the above it is necessary that we make ourselves present everywhere, mainly in the streets, making it clear that the intention is not only to act in an effective manner to fascist provocations, but to act in an offensive manner, permanently promote an anti-authoritarian attitude, to make visible, question and stress the daily reproductions of fascist attitudes such as racism, xenophobia, sexism and homo/transphobia.

We are present with Heather Heyer, Rodrigo Lanza and those who confront fascism in any of its forms.

Call for Support and Solidarity to the ‘Craigavon 2’ (Northern Ireland)

August 27th, 2018

ES – Irlanda del Norte – Llamado al apoyo y la solidaridad con los presos del caso ‘Craigavon 2″

From Sacco and Vanzetti to the Craigavon 2

A Call Out for Support and Solidarity

The 23rd of August marks the 91st anniversary of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti. They were both executed in the US in 1927 for the robbery of a shoe factory and the killing of a guard and paymaster. During their trial the prosecution produced conflicting ballistic evidence and witness testimony. The defence had several witnesses testifying where the accused men were on the day of the robbery and killings. This should have proven Sacco and Vanzetti innocence but instead both were convicted and sentenced to death. They were killed for their beliefs, they were insurrectionary anarchists “that advocated relentless warfare against a violent and oppressive government.”

Like Sacco and Vanzetti, the state scapegoated Brendan McConville and John Paul Wootton (their case is known as the Craigavon 2) , for revenge over killing of a cop and two British soldiers in 2009. The cops arrested and charged several republicans in connection with the killings. In all cases the only real evidence the state had was that all the accused were republicans. Two people, John Paul Wootton and Brendan McConville were charged and convicted of the killing of the cop. Two others, Colin Duffy and Brian Shivers, were charged with the killing of the soldiers. The latter were subsequently found not guilty of the killings of the soldiers, the state had no evidence on them. Read the rest of this entry »

Write to imprisoned anarchists, not politicians or presidents

August 25th, 2018

Why bother writing to politicians when all they deserve is our hatred? They will never listen to appeals from social reformers or the unwashed, nevermind the misguided anarchists. Why don’t you write to locked-up anarchists instead, cheer them up and strike up a conversation? One of the most important and simple ways we have available to break the isolation imposed on our imprisoned comrades is to write to them and let them know that they are not forgotten but are present. Nothing stops when you enter prison and we can meet them there with our international solidarity which is taking place on many fronts.

Here is a good PDF guide to prisoner correspondence written by ABC Leeds some years ago but still relevant today, plus a list of anarchist prisoners compiled by the international groups of the Anarchist Black Cross for the week of solidarity taking place at the moment:

La “Red Solidaria Antikarcelaria con Juan y Marcelo” converge en los momentos en que nos llega la feliz noticia de que nuestro compañero Freddy Fuentevilla Saa logra pisar las calles nuevamente el 18/06/2018 tras 10 años y 3 meses de prisión ininterrumpida.

Santiago, Chile: 1st public communiqué from the “Anti-Prison Solidarity Network with Juan and Marcelo”

August 23rd, 2018



–What is a prison?

Prison is a material structure through which it is intended to inhibit the acts of any person who transgresses the conduct imposed by the State. Thus, punishment and the imposition of socially accepted discipline are the regime in which the captives have to live, by this seeking to annul their actions, ideas and beliefs. These acts may constitute crimes and like the ones that challenge order, be of revolutionary politics. It is with these that we again take a stand – either by supporting or having solidarity with those companions who presently are encarcerated for having carried out subversive actions for a political idea of liberation. The commitment of these companions makes us want to support them in real ways, concretely because we share goals. Read the rest of this entry »

Sallynoggin Concerned Community Occupation – Dublin (Ireland)

August 20th, 2018

Our group Sallynoggin Concerned community has tonight taken a 3 story building at 10a church place, Sallynoggin. We have been forced to take direct action to keep our community safe from sexual predators. The landlord Paul Murphy, Dr Patrick Randall and the Garda [Police] have collaborated to secretly setup a sex offenders clinic without planning permission, without community consent in the heart of our community with schools, colleges and creches within meters.

Dr Patrick Randall has continuously lied to our community since we have engaged with him in July. We picketed and took direct action to force the closure of the clinic and on the 16th of July, Randall backed up by 30 Garda cut our community locks, and evacuated 2 lorry loads of client files and told us he was moving out.

‘Till all are free – International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners’ – Text from Comrades in Greece

August 20th, 2018

ES – Grecia – “Hasta que todes seamos libres” (texto de compañeres de Grecia para la Semana Internacional de Solidaridad con los Presos Anarquistas)

Till all are free – International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners

In 2013 the groups comprising the Anarchist Black Cross initiated the Week for Anarchist Prisoners, which takes place in the last week of August. The first day, chosen on purpose, is the anniversary of the execution of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti in 1927. It’s important to emphasize the stories of our
comrades, since many of them will not be acknowledged as political prisoners.

Various state services of surveillance requested to speak with comrades as part of ongoing investigations, using the suspects’ political orientation as the only criterion. This orientation is toward anarchism. Every investigation is based on the possibility of prosecuting comrades with the aid of an arsenal of laws aimed against a dangerous domestic enemy.

These prosecutions could involve anything, from texts until any sort of direct action, and this practice is nothing new since similar prosecutions in many
countries of the world have been witnessed in the past, especially those with a strong presence of anarchists who promote direct action and interventions. A tactic of the forces of repression is to prevent anarchist propaganda and the diffusion of our ideas and for that they won’t hesitate to puncture the veneer of “democracy” which supposedly allows the free dissemination of ideas and information. Thus, any illusions people might like to have about democracy come to an end. Things have now become clear, the anarchist action or discourse will either become illegal or mean nothing”! This new form of repression that appeared now, is enforced against many of our captives, even under the guise of international “terrorism” which actually aims to target the domestic enemy that anarchy is. On one hand our captives have been prosecuted based on their political identity and on the other by having taken the political responsibility of their actions and their organizations. The strategy of preventive repression, of persecutions leading to convictions with the maximum possible sentences, of fast-track trials and of an effort to muzzle dissent, is already being enforced against anarchist centres and self-organized efforts that support and disseminate anarchist values. Simultaneously, the latest trial hearings constitute a final rehearsal of a new doctrine the state wants to enforce. Read the rest of this entry »

Egoism Vs. The Nazi Aztecs of Eco-Extremism (USA)

August 20th, 2018

ES – EE. UU.: EGOISMO VS. LOS AZTECAS NAZIS DEL ECO-EXTREMISMO

From The Conjure House:

(This was originally a facebook post that was mass reported by meme pages like “Everything is Bad” and “Post-Left Rage,” as well as the fans of the “Anarchist” publisher Little Black Cart (who makes a living publishing eco-extremist as well as egoist texts). They wanted it off facebook and, essentially, for it to go unread.

True to my asshole nature, I not only published here but expanded it.

I invite you to read it and become aware of Eco-extremism, the journal Atassa, and what their “ideology” is. When you see people sharing their memes or talking about them, you’ll know what they really want to do)

Many of you have asked me “what is ITS” over the past few days. Today I’d like to talk about it because I think its important you know.

ITS stands for “Individualists Tending Towards the Wild.” It is a (supposed) group of people living in Mexico who started out, or at least claimed to, in the egoist/nihilist tradition of Anarchism. This made them heroic figures for many on the Post-Left side of thinking, reeling from the failures of the 1990’s and very much looking beyond Green Anarchism. ITS puts out communiques that are discussed and fawned over by a journal called Atassa. Atassa also shares copies of their communiques online. Atassa is published by Little Black Cart, the largest publisher of Egoist and Nihilist literature. Read the rest of this entry »
