“Burn all prisons, with or without walls!” – The call for a Subversive May, as an extension of the proposal for an Anarchist May 1st in Berlin, is understood by us as a call to extend the attack on different levels. We agree with the idea not to confine ourselves to one day but to constantly and unpredictably attack the functioning of existing society and prove that its security is an illusion.
The apparatus of power includes not only the murderers of the State, but also the mercenaries of the private security companies. Securitas vehicles once parked undisturbed in the GESOBAG housing estate where they act as security guards to prevent the intervention of cops during conflicts with tenants or tensions with the property management. Securitas is also engaged in surveillance work in prisons and public spaces worldwide. Read the rest of this entry »
Athens, Greece: Responsibility Claim for the Arson Attack against Eurobank branch
We were taught that everything is commodity, everything can be exchanged. We didn’t understand the small print of history: that we are commodity too; working power that is exchanged with peanuts, prayers and curses, and a daily reverence to alienation, to the shattering of every human dignity. We referred to the wage slavery as our highest value and intention. We didn’t feel the waves of history carving our skin, we didn’t feel the razor blades of political economy chiseling our motion.
We ‘ve shown discipline to our times’ teachings, which are nothing more than the dominant narrative that wants us producing and consuming machines, that wants for itself the monopoly of the decision about what is included and what is excluded by its normativity. A dominant narrative by a dominant world that leaves its bloody marks on us everyday, fracturing the individual, feeding it with oppression and neuroses, killing every desire for experimentation and vitality and replacing them with miserable micro-rivalries and intrigue, disguising the emptiness.

POLITICAL STATEMENT OF FRONT ANTI FASIS BANDUNG (BANDUNG ANTI FASCIST FRONT) ON FUND FROM INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY AFTER BANDUNG MAYDAY 2019
Police brutality during International Labour Day May 1st of 2019 in some cities, has append dark record of state apparatus to civil society’s life. In Bandung, more than 700 comrades raided, striped off, bald-shaved, spray-painted, beaten up, and others worst things ever done to them by police. Same things also happen to comrades in others city such as Jakarta, Surabaya, Malang, and Makasar, they happened to be the victim of police brutality. That occurrence arouse many condemn to police and military from around the world.
As respond, many solidarity comes from individuals and organization toward the 2019 Mayday movement. Some Indonesian organizations then raise funds locally even internationally, as solidarity to those comrades who raided and threaten brutally by the police.
Until now, we “Front Anti Fasis Bandung” (Bandung Anti Fascist Front) have agreed to:
1. Have never run any fund raising nor receive any donation from International Solidarity.
2. Any necessity related to legal advocation and etc, is handled by local self-powered.
3. We still need all our comrades abroad to organize mass movement, campaign, political statement, and mobilization as a display of International Solidarity for us.
We’d like to sincerely say our biggest thanks to all of our solidarity comrades whose until today still shown their support and keep the flame of resistance on fire!
Tourism grows like flowers in the spring, security cameras appear like leaves to protect the peaceful citizens. Everything must be clear, beautiful and in developmental path. The appearance of the city should fit into the list of Aegean Airlines. Tourists do not need a lot, some chain stores and hipster coffeeshops, a good guide to explaining which places to avoid, and something that fits into the “authentic Greek experience”. We look forward to the next group of tourists who will take a selfie around the Acropolis.At the same time, our neighborhood degrades slowly. People who can not respond to the increase of rent price are either forced to find another home to stay or are forced to comply with the new rules. At the same time, investors are exacerbating the situation as they buy old houses, which are being demolished and, in their place, they are building luxurious housing estates. Apartments renovated for short-term rent (AIRBNB) as well as public spaces and parks are privatized reducing free and open spaces. The game is as old as the same city is listening to the name of private property . The rule is also simple: whoever does not own, will pay, whoever does not pay will be expelled. People who are not part of the capitalist machine, little illegal sellers and homeless people, illegal graffiti and political posters, life in general, and things that can not be sold will disappear. We know very well that nothing will be given to us because we do not belong to the owners’ side. We know that we do not even fit into this suffocating capitalist context, nor do we want to keep up with the logic of bosses and investors. That is why we are fighting against their expansionist and developmental plans.On Tuesday 9/04, we visited a boutique (as they call it) of luxury apartments, which is in its final stage of implementation, on Kolokotroni street between Koukaki and Petralona. Kolokotroni Street is a street with several old or abandoned houses, and it seems that the crows of the construction company from Glyfada have put it in the goal. During our visit, we put a banner that read: “RICH PEOPLE GET BACK TO YOUR SUBURBS, HOUSING IS NOR A LIFESTYLE NEITHER A PRODUCT, IT’S A NEED (A)”, we throw paint on the freshly painted walls and advertisements of the company, write slogans and open holes or even completely tear apart interior walls. Nevertheless, investors insist on forcing us to a second visit and today they have put cameras thinking that we will stop.
OUTSIDE THE INVESTORS FROM OUR NEIGHBORHOOD AGAINST AIRBNB AND LUXURY APARTMENTS NO ATTACK TOWARDS OUR LIFE WILL STAY WITHOUT ANSWER IF WE DON’T GET ORGANIZED IN ALL NEIGHBOURHOODS, OUR CITIES WILL BECOME MODERN PRISONS
We learn of the arrest of anarchists comrades Natascia, Beppe and Robert, which took place on 21 May, 2019, and was carried out by the ROS of carabinieri as part of a repressive operation called “Prometeo” (“Prometheus”). Some searches have also been carried out. The regime’s media report that the main accusation is of “attack with the purpose of terrorism or subversion”, as they are considered responsible for sending three bomb packages arrived in June 2017 to the p. m. Rinaudo and Sparagna (the latter is the public prosecutor in the trial for the “Scripta manent” operation) and to Santi Consolo, at the time director of the DAP (“Department of Penitentiary Administration”) in Rome.

I can hardly believe that it has been another year passing and it is J11 again. I am so thankful for this annual touch point as an opportunity to reach out to my community on the outside and to take stock of the year. It is hard to take in that I have been locked up for more than a decade, and even more sobering to realize how many comrades have been incarcerated for MULTIPLE decades. They have my infinite admiration for maintaining their integrity and for keeping their vision alive through so many years.
I always want to thank all the good folks who do solidarity events to mark this day. I am sure that as I do, all of the anarchist prisoners draw much strength and courage from knowing that you all have our back and have worked so hard to send that immense love across borders and through the bars. There has been way too much hate and “othering” around borders these days. It’s a powerful message to send love instead, and to question the legitimacy of any borders that separate or devalue us as living beings, all equally sharing this planet.

“Capo di Ponte Theme Park” in Prada – Capo di Ponte (BS)
14.30Presentation of the meeting
15.00In the temple of Janus. About the relationship between technology, exploitation and racism For
the Italics Janus had two faces: a bearded one depicting the sun and a
beardless one depicting the moon. For the Romans, the sun and the moon
soon became peace and war. The temple of Janus, in the Roman Forum, was
closed in time of peace and open in time of war. Today the door of that
temple is always closed because of the war and the unnamed of the
present time. Embodied in the technological apparatus and its silent
injunctions, war is the planetary movement of digital democracy. Racism
is its “moment of truth”, in that it explicitly affirms what its
machines have never stopped doing to the colonial peoples. The algorithm
command prepares the chief’s orders. The abstraction from the body,
from the earth, from nature produces the comfortable bulwark of national
belonging and the desire to lynch the different as a backlash. What was
experienced in the colonies goes back. Some of the editors of the anarchist magazine “I Giorni e le Notti” (Days and Nights) (Italy)
Since the end of November, as the Gilet Jaune’s movement develops, cops and banks are being regularly attacked. In such a context, the 1st of May could have been a radical break in this world made of borders and wars. It could have been the continuation of the 16th of March’s riots and, to put it in perspective, an attack against the life-breaker industry called authority.
Nationalists and Regionalists flags are all over the place, all over our grounds, and at the same time the courts are filling up the prisons as the french state announced that it’ll be able to imprison 10,000 more people in the next 10 years, not to mention the Administrative Detention Center and psychiatric wards, and as the capitalistic speech tells us to smile as we die more and more in the inside. Work is just another way of saying « Kill me ». Read the rest of this entry »

‘Let’s go into the streets together, to send up our rebel signal to those held hostage in the entrails of Fortress Britain. Let’s go out into the night and make a dent, however brief, in the illusion of the authority of the courts, cells, judges, screws and cops who would separate and govern us, and pretend themselves our captors.’
