Anarchist Union of Iran and Afghanistan: “We are ready to cooperate with all armed opposition”

November 24th, 2019

The Anarchist Union of Iran and Afghanistan believes that the Islamic Republic of Iran’s regime will not hesitate to massacre millions of Iranians, like it has done in Syria and Iraq as well as in Iran these these last few days. Therefore, the Anarchist Union of Iran and Afghanistan is prepared to declare that it will cooperate with all Kurdish, Arab and Baloch armed opposition forces. With respect to the widespread repression of defenseless people in Iran, we must be able to provide them with the right tools to defend themselves, before there are more dead and the people’s movement has been permanently suppressed. Therefore the need to form an armed revolutionary front to support and defend the people against the Islamic regime’s executioners is urgent and necessary. If it is possible to transport weapons to people inside Iran, you should not hesitate for a moment to prevent more people from being bled and buried. The duty of the revolutionary and radical opposition outside of Iran is to provide logistical and strategic support to the struggles and resistance of the people inside Iran

25/11/19 – Call to anarchic action by Feminist Witches and Insurrectionists (Mexico)

November 24th, 2019

WE ARE BAD AND WE WILL BE WORSE: WE ARE THEIR WORST NIGHTMARE!
Urgent Call to Anarchic Action

Next Monday 25 marks the International Day for the Elimination of the Violence against Women and we will not stay at home. We will go out with all our anti-systemic rage and we hope to spread the rage back to the sectors numb from the so-called “feminist movement.”

We will not allow the Mexican State to rape and kill us while converting this day in an official act and we presume his Fourth Transformation as the end of
Patriarchy. Nor will we tolerate the police presence or allow them to reporters and journalists take pictures or videos of our faces: the press aims and the system shoots!

In his morning circus the pejeganso has decreed “the end of machismo in Mexico” and has ordered his subordinate Sheimbaum to declare the Alert for Gender Violence in City.

If the feathered peje thinks that by appointing ministers in the SCJN and doing statements grabs us, the asshole’s wrong. As we have expressed before: we are aware of the presence in the national palace of a misogynist and sexist fascist, pro-life, ultraconservative and evangelicalist to which the left has allied in its constant opportunism to “take power” at all costs.

WE ARE NOT FOOLED BY THEM! Read the rest of this entry »

Athens, Greece: Responsibility claim for the attack against DIAS forces and MAT van in Exarchia

November 24th, 2019

In the night of Thursday 7th of November 2019, we chose to attack to the riot-police (MAT) van, which stays in front of the KINAL (ex PASOK) offices, and to the motorcycle-police (DIAS forces) that was accompanying them during their shift-change. Our choice was totally targeted.

In a conjuncture that the government of New Democracy has unleashed a man-hunt against anyone who fights, in a conjuncture of evicting migrant’s and political-social spaces of struggle, in a conjuncture of the concrete abolition of the university’s asylum and the invasion of MAT and OPKE cops into the universities – in this conjuncture we chose to make an ambush against the scums of MAT and the lackeys of the DIAS forces, and attack them from two sides with incendiary devices, destroying their motorbikes, injuring three of them, and simultaneously trying to burn the van that was immobilized on Eressou street.

This action took place inside the area of Exarchia, so as to make clear that the continuation of the state’s repressive policy’s aggravation will have the equivalent answers. What followed our action, just verified our valid act to -victoriously- fight against the torturers of the Greek Police: random prosecutions, attempt to invade the café on the square, tortures against combatants, fulfilling the neighbourhood with tear-gases.

Police showed its real face once again, when a few militants -with home-made means of struggle- attacked the fully-armed guards of the order, managing to ruck the contrived omnipotence sense in this area.
Managing, also, to remind that the “surgical” operations of M. Chrisochoidis police are carried out with no anaesthetic, when they have to cope with the resistance which shames repression and measures its limits. And, finally, reminding that, without combative reflexes and intensification of the social-class resistances, it is sure that these repressive operations will achieve to numb and paralyze the movement, which will get used to the repression, incorporating fear and relinquishment.

The attack against the movement is an integral part of a larger attack against the acquired rights established on the cost and with the self-sacrifice of the combative society. The supposed passage towards the capitalist development, as a last effort of the system to handle the deep structural crisis of the Capital, signs the higher accumulation of wealth in the rich hands, the deepening of exploitation against the poor ones, the re-allocation of poverty and beggary, the intensification of precarious, underpaid and undervalued work.

That’s why capitalism constantly upgrades its repressive arsenal. That’s why it strengthens it’s laws against the insurrection that will, necessarily, outbreak the next years in Greece too. That’s why it attacks rashly and rabidly against the structures and the people of struggle, treating the movement as a “criminal association” which must be immediately eradicated.

If we want to block the preventive strategy of counter-insurgency, we must raise the wall of the movement’s self-defence and the social-class
counter-violence against it.

PS.: Strength to the anarchist comrade V. Stathopoulos, who was imprisoned after the massive repressive operation that was concerted by the scums of anti-terrorist police on the 8th and 9th of November 2019.

Athens, Greece: Responsibility claim for the attack to the New Democracy offices and to the Hellenic Post at Pefki

November 24th, 2019

We claim the responsibility for the incendiary attacks against the local offices of New Democracy and the building of the Hellenic Post at the area of Pefki in the northern suburbs (of Athens), as a fiery welcoming for the new government and its politicians, such us the human garbage with the axes* who sit on the parliament seats, and our lovely scum Adonis Georgiadis, an infamous hilarious political figure of the extreme right wing. Each one of our attacks is a promise to our struggle towards anarchy, and our signal of solidarity with our wanted and imprisoned comrades. For now, we don’t have many things to say. Now is the moment for action and for constant and abiding multi-form struggle. Strength to and complicity with everyone who will take the streets with the desire to vandalize, to throw stones to the cops, and to burn the authoritarian symbols. Strength to and complicity with all the anarchist prisoners all around the world. Solidarity means attack.

STRENGTH TO THE WANTED ANARCHIST DIMITRIS CHANTZIVASILIADIS

Nothing is over, we’ll be back

LONG LIVE ANARCHY

PS.: STRENGTH TO THE IMPRISONED ANARCHIST V. STATHOPOULOS

ANARCHIST COMBATANTS / “HORIZON OF DESTRUCTION” CELL

* Talking about Makis Voridis, a fascist scum that was attacking anarchist and punks armed with an axe back in the ’90s

Letter from an anarchist internationalist in Rojava

November 20th, 2019

نامه ای از جانب یک آنارشیست انترناسیونالیست در روژاوا
Translation to Persian: Hasse Golkar

via barrikade:

Comrades,

I think it is important now that our voices of Rojava, out of the heart of that battle, are being heard. A fight for the life, for an existence in dignity, for real democracy and for the freedom of all women. I want to tell how the resistance of Serekaniye went on, how the beginning was, how the end was and also what happened in between. Serekaniye right now is in the hands of jihadist groups that are being supported by Turkey, upon approval by the United States. At a time they said there would be a five-day firearm rest…. we didn’t believe it for one second. And that’s how it was – the attacks didn’t stop, maybe they’ve been reduced, but they continued attacking us with heavy artillery, bombings and airplanes. When there are bombings, there is not much that can be done; hide behind a tree and hope, that they didn’t see you running or that they found your place.

Those five days of supposed firearm rest actually have been decisive for the United States and Turkey, to redefine the conflict, to realign the situation of war, confrontation and resistance against our forced withdrawal that no one expected. No one could believe it, after 11 days of resistance, beautiful and very hard at the same time. Leaving the city. The Turkish invasion of Serekaniye did start some days before, 8th of October, with a bombing of our military post that hasn’t been answered, for not to unleash what happened later anyway. It was an attempt of the friends to protect the people and the society. But the next day, about 3 to 4 pm, another bombing of a post of the YPG took place, where 5 friends have fallen, and since then they bombed the whole border. Read the rest of this entry »

The band Grup Yorum is facing massive repression in Turkey. Their cultural association Idil has been the target of state attacks multiple times in the last few years and several of their members have been placed on so-called terror lists, imprisoned, or are living in exile. In protest of these measures, members of the band have been on hunger strike for over 150 days.

This event will provide current information on the band’s situation, followed by a soli concert with bands, choirs and surprise guests.

Die Band Grup Yorum ist in der Türkei massivster Repression ausgesetzt. Ihr Kulturverein Idil ist in den vergangenen Jahren etliche Male zur Zielscheibe staatlicher Angriffe ausgesetzt gewesen und mehrere ihrer Mitglieder wurden auf sogenannte Terrorlisten gesetzt, befinden sich im Gefängnis und im Exil. Um sich gegen diese Maßnahmen zur Wehr zu setzen, haben sich Mitglieder der Band vor rund 150 Tagen in einen Hungerstreik begeben.

Auf unserer Veranstaltung möchten wir aktuelle Infos zur Situation der Band geben und anschließend ein Solikonzert machen, wo Bands, Chöre und Überraschungsgäste auftreten werden.

Grup Yorum, Türkiye’de yoğun baskılara maruz kalmaktadır. Grubun da içinde bulunduğu İdil Kültür Merkezi son yıllarda defalarca kez devlet saldırılarının hedefinde oldu ve grubun birçok üyesi sözde terör listelerine konuldu. Grubun bir kısmı hapiste ve bir kısmı sürgünde. Bu uygulamalara karşı direnerek Grup Yorum üyeleri yaklaşık 150 gün önce açlık grevine başladı.

Etkinliğimizde Grup Yorum’la ilgili güncel gelişmeleri aktarıp ardından da değişik müzik gruplarının, koroların ve sürpriz misafirlerin yer alacağı bir dayanışma konseri düzenleyeceğiz.

Athens, Greece: Open call solidarity act to anarchist comrade Christoforos Kortesis

November 20th, 2019

Note of insuscettibile di ravvedimento: We publish two texts about the recent repressive attack against some anarchists in Greece, in particular about the situation of C. Kortesis.

IT/EN

Comrades,

On 12/7, the anarchists Christoforos Kortesis and Thimios A. attempted to remove some products of meaningless worth from the Leroy Merlin store of Peiraios street, in Athens. Through a complex manipulation on behalf of the OVIT security company and Leroy Merlin, and while they were both held hostages inside the store for 3 hours, an organized attempt took place to involve at the explicit incidence, the employee and a fighting trade unionist, Giannis A. The judicial authorities took advantage of the occasion to payback to X. Kortesis, the many years of consistent and persistent action in the anarchist movement. Keep in mind that the comrade is being held imprisoned since 16/7, followed by upgraded and constructed charges, under the terrorist law for robbery. The same charges are held also for Thimios A. while the employee Giannis A. is being accused for being an accomplice. Pavlos X. that came at the Leroy Merlin store, alongside with 3 more comrades in a solidarity act, is confronted with criminal concealing charges.

The systematic enlargement of the prosecution and the detention of the comrade X. Kortesis is due to his long-lasting political action in the anarchist movement, as well as to his previous conviction, under the accusation of participating in the organization Revolutionary Struggle (E.A.), held by a special political court inside the Koridallos prison. A repression tactic that takes on idiosyncratic features when it comes to fighting comrades, while at the same time law enforcement authorities are exerting all their rigor and legal arsenal on our fighting comrades, to state it exemplarily. At this specific occasion, the detention of X. Kortesis is signalling a very clear and threatening message not only to the dozens of anarchist comrades that have been persecuted, imprisoned or released under restrictions, but also to all those that intend to be present and solidary in the social and class struggles.

Paris, France: A summary of the trial against Claudio Lavazza

November 20th, 2019

IT/EN (4th-8th of November 2019)

Claudio Lavazza, rebel, anarchist, bank robber and gentleman, who during the ‘70s in Italy participated in the struggle against State and Capital, arms in hand. Contrary to the sinkers of subversion of those years, he never exchanged the desire to overthrow everything for a political career. Nor has he resigned, nor sought refuge in other States, which could have granted him a controlled freedom. No, he kept fighting, against winds and tides.

After 16 years on the run, never renouncing to his anarchist coherence, nor to the joy of living as a free man, in 1996 he is arrested after a bank robbery in Cordoba, Spain, during which three comrades, including Claudio, will be seriously injured and two policewomen will lose their lives. Claudio will thus be locked up in the special regime F.I.E.S., and even in this deadly place he will continue his battle with firmness and perseverance.

After serving 22 years in the Spanish dungeons, in the summer of 2018 he is extradited – on loan, since his sentence in Spain is not yet finished – toward France, to face trial for a bank robbery at the expense of the National Bank of Saint-Nazaire, which took place in 1986. For this robbery, he was already sentenced, in absentia, to 30 years of prison.

If going to take money where there is plenty is always a possibility, as a refusal to the blackmail of work and exploitation, in order to seize the necessary means to carry out a struggle against the State, back then, in Saint-Nazaire, the tightrope robbers did not just touch any safe. They expropriated the State’s vault! Lightning of almost 26 million euros the pockets of those who oil the gears of power. Read the rest of this entry »

Rennes, France: Vincenzo was released from prison

November 20th, 2019

IT/EN

On November 15, 2019, anarchist Vincenzo Vecchi was released from the prison of Rennes, in France. Vincenzo was arrested on August 8, this year, in France, thanks to the joint work of the French and Italian police, with the contribution of the Italian “anti-terrorism”. He was wanted and fugitive from 2012 following a final sentence of about 11 years and 6 months in prison for charges (specifically, the crime of “devastation and pillage”) concerning the days of revolt against the G8 in Genoa (July 2001). Two international arrest requests were issued against him by prosecutors in Genoa and Milan (the latter warrant linked to a sentence of four years in prison for participating in an anti-fascist demonstration against the “Fiamma Tricolore” political party in Milan, 2006).

During these months, the court of Rennes did not grant request of extradition against Vincenzo by the Italian state, judging the documents provided by the latter as insufficient or deficient. Finally, the court of appeal of Rennes, after having detected «irregularities» in the arrest warrant for the sentence issued for the days of Genoa (2001), have decided that he should be released from prison. On November 15 Vincenzo was released from prison and for the moment it should be possible fo him to stay in France.

New research focus : The surveillance industry

November 14th, 2019

From Ears & Eyes:

When cops decide to spy on us using surveillance devices such as hidden microphones and cameras or GPS trackers, they need to get the devices from somewhere. It seems that they often buy these devices from private companies. The companies that manufacture and market those devices are part of what we call the surveillance industry.

We think that understanding how the surveillance industry works, who sells the surveillance devices to the cops and what the devices look like will help us to oppose this surveillance. So we have started a research work focused on this industry, and particularly on the companies that participate in it.

On our website you will find an overview of the surveillance industry, a list of companies that sell surveillance devices to cops worldwide, a list of the trade shows and other events where you are likely to find these companies, a glossary of the specific terms of the industry, and a list of other resources on the subject. All this is available in english and french. Read the rest of this entry »

Thessaloniki, Greece: Responsibility claim for the arson of a diplomatic vehicle

November 14th, 2019

IT/EN (October 31st, 2019)

Social peace in Chile is now a thing of the past. And tolerance and consensus for State and capitalist barbarism also belongs to the past. Submission to the modern version of the Pinochet dictatorship, represented by the Piniera government. Chile is burning with the insurrectional proletarian flame of the oppressed.

It all started on October 19 when a student protest against an increase in public transport ticket prices was met with violent repression from the police forces. From then on, everything took its course. Day by day millions of insurgents flood the streets, attack the police forces, burn and plunder the symbols of wealth and power. They are burning their past, marching on the insurgent horizons of tomorrow. 11 years after the uprising in the Greek territories, these rebels remind us of what we loved most: the refusal to return to normality.

Insurrection is no longer a dead word. It is the dying breath of order and safety within a society that has been choking from the misery and barbarism of capitalism. And the result of the persistent labour of all those who work so consistently and stubbornly to question and destabilize the regime’s social consensus. Against the first retreat of the regime which hastily went to negotiations, proposing new, more favourable measures, the rebels respond without repentance: Tomorrow starts a new day of class war. Let’s take everything! Read the rest of this entry »

Milan, Italy: Arson attack against five cars of Metropolitane Milanesi

November 14th, 2019

IT/EN

On the night of November 6, 2019, we burned 5 cars of MM [Metropolitane Milanesi] in Forze Armate street in Milan because MM is one of those responsible for the evictions of houses.

This action is in solidarity with all those arrested and investigated after the eviction of Asilo Occupato in Turin.
In solidarity with those affected by the repression at Barona in Milan.
In solidarity with all prisoners.

Note: Metropolitane Milanesi, the company that manages underground transport in Milan, since some years is managing a part of the residential popular housing in Milan; while the remaining part is managed by Aler. Barona is a neighborhood in Milan; the repressive fact referred to in the text happened on October 30, when some members of the Comitato Autonomo Abitanti Barona (“Autonomous Committee of Barona Inhabitants”, an antagonistic group related to the struggle for the house in the neighborhood) received some “divieti di dimora” (bans) from Milan.

Turin, Italy: Arrests of September 20 – Amma, Uzzo and Patrick were transferred to house arrest

November 14th, 2019

IT/EN

On November 12, 2019, Amma, Uzzo and Patrick were transferred from the “Le Vallette” prison (in Turin) to house arrest, with no other special restrictions. They had been arrested on September 20, 2019, in the context of a repressive operation aimed at carrying out some precautionary measures (in particular, in addition to their arrests, about a dozen “divieti di dimora” from Turin – a measure that requires the accused not to reside in a particular place and not to access it without the authorization of the proceeding judge) and some searches, referring to a investigation by the prosecutor’s office of Turin over charges relating to the conflictual demonstration of February 9, this year in Turin, against the eviction of Asilo Occupato and the repressive operation “Scintilla” (February 7), for which currently only Silvia is imprisoned (since a few months under house arrest with all the restrictions). On September 20, to arrest a comrade the police had surrounded the Casa Brancaleone occupation (in Milan, also the home of anarchist space L’Accerchiata), threatening to evict the squat – an attempt that not happened because the comrade was arrested.

We recall that on October 8, Amma, returning to prison following a judicial hearing concerning the arrest, was beaten and threatened by some prison police officers; a serious physical consequence of this beating was the perforation and damage of an eardrum.

We also recall what happened on February 9: a demonstration in response to the “Scintilla” operation moved through the streets of Turin, trying also to approach the Asilo (completely surrounded by police and carabinieri, and in the meantime devastated by the police and the workers in charge of closing the building), subsequently going against the police, the city and things that are daily the frame of the existence of the oppressed. During the demonstration some people were arrested and detained in “Le Vallette” prison – and then released a few days later.

Those arrested and under investigation on September 20 are accused of “aggravated injuries”, “resistance to a public official”, “damage” and “dirtying”.

Ukraine: Two cell towers of Life/Turk-cell destroyed in Kyiv region – Solidarity with struggle in Kurdistan

November 14th, 2019

In October 2019 the Turkish state invaded Northern Syria. The target of their aggression was Democratic Federation of Northern and Eastern Syria (Rojava). By the fault of rulers blood is being shed again and peacful people are suffering and dying. The goal of the president of Turkey Erdogan is to destroy revolutionary Autonomy of Syrian Kurds. Revolutionaries of Kurdistan build a society of stateless popular self-management. And Rojava became an example and model for Kurds in Turkey. That is why «Turkish sultan» started a war.

In the night of November 11 we destroyed two cell phone network towers of the Lifecell company settled by the Zahaltsy and Piskivka settlements in Kyiv region. Lifecell is fully owned by Turkish giant TURKCELL, the largest mobile provider of the State of Turkey. As a large corporate tax payer Turkcell appears as the indirect sponsor of the aggression of Erdogan`s regime. There are also widely known connections of the provider with the ruling «Justice and Development Party» which construct the basis of the current system in the country. These are the reasons why we consider the property of Lifecell as a legitimate target for the sabotage.

We stay in solidarity with revolutionaries and people of Kurdistan. They fight the occupation and oppression — for the liberty and social justice. We call to everyone who cares about the situation to participate in the resistance in a manner according to their abilities.

Freedom to the peoples — death to the Empires!

Сell of Revolutionary Solidarity
