After the magnificent period of resistance around the G20 summit in Hamburg in 2017, after the G7 summit of June 2018 in Quebec – placed under an unparalleled repressive level, with its “free expression zone” – and the G20 summit at Buenos Aires in November / December 2018 promises to be a great moment, given the current popularity of Macri, the history of local struggles, and the animosity of the region towards Trump …
Now the 2017 G7 summit is announced to take place at the end of summer 2019 in Biarritz. We have no illusions about the repressive level that we are entitled to expect from Gérard Collomb. It is clear that this summit will once again be a law enforcement laboratory, as will judicial measures against demonstrators and those who are organizing themselves. Read the rest of this entry »
We need to explain, that we have difficulty finding information regarding detainees due to separate case files and also different the trial schedules between them and the schedules change of the trial day, but this did not stop us from giving information to you (readers).
Since October 6, 2018, we have been striving to get the latest information regarding the Class War Prisoners in Yogyakarta who were related to the M1 incident that happened in the past at the intersection of UIN Yogyakarta, from those 11 prisoners they have all received legal assistance (Advocate), with the following details: Read the rest of this entry »
Lasst uns gemeinsam den Vorhang vor der sogenannten ‘Eco-Extremist Mafia’ zurueckziehen und sie mit Hilfe unserer Kontakte etwas mehr zu entlarven. Als Anarchist*innen gehoert es zu unseren Aufgaben, Informationen ueber unsere autoritaeren, faschistischen, reaktionaeren und irrationalen Feinde aufzuspueren und zu sammeln. Diese ‘Mafia’ sagte, dass sie sich lange Zeit im Schatten versteckt hielt, moeglicherweise haben sie sich allerdings in der Besenkammer mit Umschlaegen, Papieren, Stiften und Computern versteckt.
‘Art Cabrera’ ist Arturo Vasquez. Wer ist Art Cabrera’? Er ist Herausgeber der oekofaschistischen Zeitschrift Atassa, die das englische Sprachrohr der Kirche von ITS Mexiko ist: ‘Individualisten, die sich dem Wilden zugewandt haben’.
Vasquez, ein Stueck Dreck der fuer die Uebersetzung und Verbreitung des sogenannten ‘Oeko-Extremismus‘ aus den USA verantwortlich ist, versucht seine reaktionaere Doktrin voranzutreiben, waehrend er ein voellig falsches und verlogenes Doppelleben fuehrt. Wir freuen uns, seinen richtigen Namen mit Foto und Kontaktdaten vom Arbeitsplatz zu veroeffentlichen, um ihm kleinere und groessere Probleme zu bereiten. Da Vasquez immer froh darueber war, der Kirche der Oeko-Extremisten zu dienen, Morddrohungen gegen unsere anarchistischen Gefaehrt*innen anzuzetteln und dabei glaubte, unantastbar zu sein, haben wir grosse Freude daran, seine gesammelten Daten im Internet zu veroeffentlichen (doxxing). Hier ist die Firma, fuer die er in seinem wirklichen Leben arbeitet, nicht die seiner Fantasiewelt, in der er der Boss der ‘Oeko-Extremisten Mafia’ in Amerika ist:
Vielleicht moechten ja einige der antifaschistischen und anarchistischen Gefaehrt*innen in Amerika seinen Arbeitsplatz oder auch seine Frau kontaktieren, um vor ihm als gefaehrliches Mitglied der ‘Oeko-Extremisten Mafia’ zu warnen alle Kontakt daten sind dort zu finden.

Each year the end of August (23-30.8.) is the time for the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners. And to make sure that you know what this week is about and why it is needed we made an interview with a comrade who is part of the group that organized this years’ Week of Solidarity.
This audio has been published originally as part of the International Anarchist Radio Network’s “Bad News” show #15 (September 2018), which you can find here.
You’ll find the audio (to listen online or download in different sizes) here.

Appeal from the International Anarchist Defence Fund, project of the Anarchist Black Cross and related groups.
A-Fund turned one year this September. This was the time when we issued our first call for joining the project last year. It took us another half a year to figure out collective processes and the concept of the fund. We have tried our best to reach out to groups with a call to donate, but so far we haven’t received as much feedback as we were expecting. The lack of publicity results in low number of donations, and this situation can eventually lead to the loss of interest from the side of support-seekers. We would like to provide bigger support, but this involves attracting more donations. We are determined to break this vicious circle. But we need your help.
So, as our next steps, we have identified reaching out to all possible anarchist groups, asking them to spread information about the fund, spread our flyers, put a banner on their websites, putting advertisements in anarchist magazines, etc. But the problem is that we don’t know so many languages and contexts, that’s why we need the help of volunteers from all imaginable countries and regions who would help us compile a comprehensive list of anarchist collectives in their regions, get links to their websites and contacts, identifying sites with open publication, etc.
If you are one of these people, please feel free to contact us at email@example.com
Memorial video for the anarchist internationalist fighter of Rojava Haukur Hilmarsson (Sahin Huseyni). Sehid Sahin has fought against I.S. (DAESH) in Raqqa and martyred while he was defending Afrin from Turkish State’s military invasion.
For a long time, we hesitated how we would take the word. First of all, we have led discussions that have allowed us to understand what we have. Then we set up this site https://kronika.noblogs.org/ about global anarchist practice. That’s what we missed here, and that makes sense to us.
There are many important topics and we do not have the capacity to do it with everyone. We will try to bring at least some information about attacks, campaigns, projects, communiqués … about living anarchist practices.
In the way, there are state pawns and their fake critics, such as „anarchists“ from academia, leftists, journalists, pacifists and other reformists. We will go against their way. We will be of explaining our attitudes here. No, we do not believe we will change the strength of the arguments of their attitudes. But we want to bring
food for the brains to our comrades. Read the rest of this entry »
Tired of being silent, tired of seeing systematic violence every day through racism, sexism and waged labor that take place in society, whose essential values are authority and profit. Sick of exploitation we see all political parties as main responsible, as they repress freedom with the state, reformist and repressive apparatus (TV, the mass-media, associations, the army, the civil protection, etc.) The state and capital are the biggest criminals, they even violate their own laws, they steal through taxes, they kill through wars and waged labor, rejections of migrants’ boats in the sea, concentration camps for immigrants in Europe and Africa, they contaminate irreversibly men, animals and the entire planet, all for their profit and power.
Let’s not forget the hypocritical complicity of society made of citizens who pretend not to see the horrors of present and past racism and nationalism. This acceptance is the pillar of totalitarianism and democracy: in the course of time the authority based on indifference, fear, apathy was able to create Gulags and nazi concentration camps, and today the concentration camps in Libya and outside our homes. It’s history that repeats itself. Read the rest of this entry »
“Hemos decidido rebelarnos frente a esta realidad de mierda, que sin duda nada tiene que ver con nosotros. Pasan los años, y una pregunta me da vuelta en la cabeza. ¿Será siempre así? ¿Es que no tenemos derecho a una vida digna y alegre? ¿Todos los días serán iguales?
Nos cansamos de aplanar esquinas. De estudiar sin saber para qué. De tener que sacarse la cresta por un pedazo de pan. Nos cansamos de ver prostitutas de 11 años y que nos inunden con el Mapocho para salvar a Providencia. Estamos cabreados de los milicos asesinos, de pacos locos y prepotentes, de gerentes ladrones. (…) Queremos ser personas, vivir nuestra juventud. (…) Que no quede ningún asesinato, tortura o atropello sin justicia”.
–Movimiento Juvenil Lautaro
El 11 de Septiembre es un hito, marca una antes y un después, lo queramos o no. El 11 de Septiembre ricxs y poderosxs de Chile golpearon la mesa e hicieron prevalecer sus privilegios. El proyecto legalista de la Unidad Popular y también expresiones más radicalizadas de la lucha, vieron notoriamente mermadas sus fuerzas para combatir lo que se avecinaba, de esta manera terminaron siendo aplastados por la bota militar. La derrota fue instalada. Los deseos y las ansias de libertad no pueden ser defendidos solo con buenas intenciones, esto lo aprendimos del dolor que conlleva una lección como esta.
La sociedad chilena fue quirúrgicamente modificada entre decretos, leyes, toques de queda, detenidxs desaparecidxs, muertxs (en falsos y reales enfrentamientos), montajes que avalaban el actuar dictatorial, torturadxs (humilladxs, violadxs, o llevadxs al extremo en simulaciones de fusilamiento), presxs políticxs, exiliadxs, entre otros tantos hechos cuya descripción se vuelve una pesadilla. No obstante y pese a ello, el 11 de Septiembre es una fecha de memoria y de no resignación a los sueños por una vida mejor. Read the rest of this entry »
For the first time in the Indonesia anarchist movement there is a snitch who has given information blaming a known anarchist comrade in that territory for organising the Mayday demo (M1) in Yogyakarta. Several comrades are still hunted by police and had to go underground. Here is the info:
Achmad Azwar Darmawan was one of the people who were arrested during the M1 (May 1st) protest in Yogyakarta. He and three other people were arrested when they escaped to Bogor. They were accused of writing down the anti-monarchy graffiti during the protest, which upset a lot of people. Two people became suspects, while two others were set free. It should be emphasized that the escape was done based on individual and group (affinity) decision where each participant was expected to understand that the action was done based on a joint decision (read: without any leader).
The decision-process among M1 participants, especially among those who wore all-black, was very different from the decision-process among leftists or other authoritarian groups, which usually is controlled by a party or a certain central-command, which is very hierarchical. There was no orchestrator who initiated the protest. Azwar is a deluded leftist who risk his comrades for his own safety. Read the rest of this entry »
Erdogan – the stray dog from the Bosporus – will come to Berlin on September 29 and become a terrorist legitimized through the German state government. The warmongers and fascists will meet to resolve further deals on the “refugee issue”. While the arms industry pops bottles and the Federal Republic of Germany grants arms exports into the billions, innumerable people are dying in this war. This is the reason for us to disturb, sabotage, and attack this state visit. Not all of us are facing this destruction deedless. Our signs of rage and resistance reached as well our international comrades, who will fight with us on the day the fascist is coming to Germany. Shoulder to shoulder against fascism! Down with Erdogan and his fascist collaborateurs! For freedom! Read the rest of this entry »
During the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners more than a dozen ATMs in different neighborhoods of Madrid were sabotaged. The tools for these types of sabotage and simple and easy: hammers and sprays.
We understand solidarity as a continuity of the struggle that has led to our compañerxs being held in the prisons of the State. Anarchist solidarity is much more than just a written word or doing assistance work with the prisoners. This
solidarity is materialized via attacks against the structures of capitalism and State, and seeks to deepen the conflict through direct action.
Down with the walls of the prisons. Long live anarchy.
For the compañerxs hit by Operation Scripta Manent!
For the compañerxs facing repression following the Hamburg G20 summit!
For the Indonesian anarchists prosecuted after May 1st!
