Letter from Silvia Guerini (Italy)

October 21st, 2010

SILVIA’S COMMUNICATION FROM THE BIEL’S PRISON

Message for the animal and earth liberation meeting – 10-11-12 September 2010 (ITALY)

Much to my regret, I can not be present at these three so important days, at the first meeting of animal and earth liberation.

But I’m there with you, with my thought and my heart.

I send you this message and a big hug.

We are constantly bombarded by an infinity of toxic substances, released in the air “in the soil” in the rivers and in the seas.

We are submerged by industrial and technological poison. Biotechnologies and technologies are going to identify themselves into the whole fabric of society. Read the rest of this entry »

M.A. Julius & Co. Bailiff Offices attacked in Nottingham (UK)

October 20th, 2010

19 October 2010

“A violent tool of the state and capitalism, bailiffs are a tool on the poor and as such deserve to be treated with fury and contempt. And last night they were.

M.A Julius and Co. of New Basford, Nottingham were paid a visit last night. Their windows were smashed and messages were left, “Fuck the Rich”, “Leave our homes alone” and “Fuck Bailiffs” were painted on the walls of their offices.

This was in solidarity with all of those, including ourselves who have had the indignity from being evicted from homes because the system we live in rewards the selfish greed of the privileged few and punishes the excluded and marginalized. As the cuts come more and more people will struggle to cope, and more and more will be put into debt, and more and more will have their doors broken down by agents of the capitalism. This action is a sign that there will be retaliation, that the controllers of capital and their stooges will not have it all their own way.

Smash the rich and fuck capital. Hammer and Paint

Sabotage at Broken Cross Mine (UK)

October 19th, 2010

17 October 2010

“Last night four earth movers, two dump trucks and an explosives handling truck were sabotaged beyond use at Broken Cross Open Cast Mine in South Lanarkshire. The mine is one of three active mines in the Douglas valley owned by Scottish Coal. Scottish Coal is attempting to open three more open cast mines in the valley, totally engulfing the communties in mines and infrastructure, destroying their way of life and their health.

It’s time to stand up to these bullies and hit them where it hurts. We won’t stop until they leave the Douglas Valley, and leave the coal in the ground. Fuck Scottish Coal!”

12-15 Nov Days of Action for Khimki Hostages (Russia)

October 18th, 2010

12 to 15 of November 2010: The new Days of Action for the final and unconditional liberation of the Khimki hostages: Aleksei Gaskarov and Maxim Solopov

Update: Khimki town court released Maxim Solopov from the arrest. Khimki town court has ruled to change the pre-trial restriction for Maxim Solopov from arrest to a written pledge not to leave town

On the 27th and 28th of September new court sessions were held where the question of freeing Aleksei Gaskarov and Maxim Solopov, arrested on the 28th of July 2010, was dealt with. Shutting their eyes to the lack of evidence, turning their backs on public and international support for the detainees, described as “pressure on the court” by the prosecution, the Khimki judges prolonged the detention of the two social activists for two more months.

Group 4 Murder Angolan Migrant Jimmy Mubenga during Deportation (UK)

October 16th, 2010

An Angolan man was suffocated to death by three G4S guards who were forcibly deporting him back to Angola, they used handcuffs and ‘restraint’ techniques which involved putting pressure on his back and pushing his head into his lap.

According to witnesses he struggled and shouted for ten minutes, “i can’t breathe, they are going to kill me” whilst being held down by the G4S guards. Many passengers were pushed away from him into first class to avoid them seeing the reality of migration politics in the UK.

He lost conciousness and was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead. G4S released a statement to the effect of: “a detainee was ill and on the flight and died in hospital”.

This is the reality of the murderous borders, people who don’t fit into the correct ‘citizen’ model, who don’t have the right papers, who don’t ‘belong’ in the UK are brutally treated and deported with fatal results. Whether or not the deaths occur in the detention centre, on the flight, after deportation, during a dangerous illegal border crossing is irrelevant, the fact is Borders Kill!

Fuck their deportations, solidarity to all migrants and especially the Mubenga family at this time.

County Hall attacked in Nottinghamshire (UK)

October 14th, 2010

13 October 2010

“The Nottinghamshire County Hall was attacked last night with hammers and graffiti. Messages of “Fight the Cuts” and “Fuck Austerity” were left on the walls of the entrance facing the trent, whilst several windows were smashed.

This was a small gesture, it exists alongside all other gestures large and small, which refuse to accept “the way things are”.

We are members of the insubordinate masses, we won’t attend your marches or listen to your speeches. We know the government will keep cutting in order to pay for the banks mistake. We know that capitalism is the crisis, and that it will continue to be.

We will continue to attack wherever we see possibilities. We will continue to attack in solidarity with all those who are abused by governments and banks in the name of capitalism. We will continue to attack in solidarity with anyone who has fought back before us and with anyone who will fight back after us.

The system is killing us and we must fight back.”

13 October 2010

“This morning people locked the haulage gate of Mainshill Open Cast Site on the B7078 with a d-lock preventing coal trucks entering the site and transporting coal to the Ravenstruther Rail Head.

This action was taken in solidarity with The Happendon Wood Action Camp and the people living in the Douglas Valley who are facing an onslaught of coal mines from Scottish Coal. Our actions will not stop until Scottish Coal stops ripping apart the Douglas Valley for profit. “

Communique from the last Mapuche hungerstrikers (Chile)

October 13th, 2010

On October 2, most of the Mapuche political prisoners on hungerstrike in the prisons of the Chilean state announced an end to their action while the hungerstrikers at Angol prison declared they would continue. On October 7, they released another communique explaining their struggle. The following day, after nearly 90 days without eating, they ended their hungerstrike, although without signing onto any agreement with the Chilean state.

Military police office attacked with molotov cocktails in Ñuñoa, Santiago (Chile)

October 13th, 2010

1 October 2010

Claim for Attack on Chilean Military Police

THIS WAS REVENGE

During the week, we heard the news of the arbitrary transfer to Santiago 1 of the comrades imprisoned in the Bombs Case, as well as their hunger strike and subsequent one-month sentence. Added to that was the beating given to our brother Abuelo (Camilo). Therefore, we decided to arm ourselves with household items in order to take revenge.

“In this joint, the cops are in charge,” declared the aggressor gendarme. Today we answer him: “In the joint and on the streets, anyone can be in charge. It’s just a question of will and conviction.”

Sir Gendarmes, wretched jailers: HANDS OFF THE ANARCHIST POLITICAL PRISONERS. Know full well that we will not stand for even one more outrage against the abducted comrades, their visitors, or their communications.

And you, sir prosecutor Alejandro Peña, should stop bullshitting. You must know that anarchists DON’T HAVE LEADERS. Therefore, ILLICIT ASSOCIATION IS IMPOSSIBLE.

Chilean Gendarmes, CONSIDER YOURSELVES WARNED.

NO MORE ANTI-TERRORIST LAW

FREE THE ACCUSED IN THE BOMBS CASE

(We take this opportunity to send greetings to those showing internationalist solidarity in England, Spain, Mexico, Greece, Argentina, Canada, and elsewhere, as well as the Mapuche prisoners in Angol who are maintaining their struggle.)

Despite Everything (Belgium)

October 11th, 2010

To the rebels over here and over there

It’s not easy to catch reality into words, as feelings and desires always go beyond what is offered by vocabulary. It is however a vital thing to speak, trying to give expression to our thoughts and feeling. Certainly at times when the terror of the state and her troops of order try to silence everything.

For years we’ve been saying that we need space and time to enable us to think and speak freely. This space and time will never be given to us, we can only conquer them ourselves, eradicate them from the reality of thou shall and thou must. That’s why we’ve been speaking and we speak about revolt, about deeds which create space to live, to express our desires for freedom which no longer accept the sickening misery and ugliness of this world.

Anarchist prisoner Marco Camenisch has been transferred (Switzerland)

October 11th, 2010

Dear comrades,

Marco Camenisch has been transferred from Zurich to a high security prison in Orbe, without even giving him the time to get ready or tell anyone! This happens after 8 years in Zurich, out of the blue and without any warning!

We don’t know the reasons for this, but can make our own conclusions. We think this is due to his recent hunger strike together with Silvia, Billy and Costa; to the international mobilisations around long-term revolutionary prisoners; to his long-term commitment and his contacts with the international movement. Once again the system is trying to isolate him, by transferring him to a high security prison far away.

Solidarity is our weapon: let’s use this weapon by sending cards and greetings to Marco.

Marco Camenisch
Penitencier de Bochuz
Case Postale 150
1350 Orbe

Attacks against police targets in Bristol (UK)

October 11th, 2010

8 & 9 October 2010

“Anti-police actions on the nights of the 8th and 9th October.

1. Avonmouth police garage was a soft target with 30 rocks thrown over the fence at vehicles.

2. CID regional HQ, Kenneth Steele House, Feeder rd. Plainclothes vehicles, including one sports car, smashed with rocks.

3. Fishing line strung up at 9ft for the mounted police of Bower Ashton mounted police and dog section.

Pick your moment, your terrain. Ambush.

Some angry people are not content to stagnate in silence. We recognise our brains as weapons. Wouldn’t it be nice if more people broke away from the British tradition of sitting back and taking shit from cops in the U.K and actually fought back for a change?

Solidarity with all those inside and outside the prison who fight the system.

This is for all those beaten, abused and murdered by police.”
