Announcement of the three members of Revolutionary Struggle (Greece)

November 5th, 2010

In the modern junta of the I.M.F., the E.C.B., the E.U. and the Greek government, methods from the Nazi occupation in Greece are being mobilized. Just like when the Nazis attacked the families and the social environment of the guerrillas in order to isolate them and exterminate them easier, today the modern fascists that govern us target families, friends and comrades of ours and of the three comrades that are in prison accused of participating in “Revolutionary Struggle”, in an operation to terrorize a whole political movement, through new persecutions and mass interrogations.

Our Struggle is as Trans-National as Capital!

The Matrix of the Philippine Mining Industry

The mining industry is one of the biggest industries in the world to date.
In every part of the world where there are minerals, mining companies from such as Canada, United States, Australia, Asia, Japan and Norway and many parts of Europe compete to exploit the resources which they can gain profit from. Consequently, this has lead to the horrendous destruction of the Earth’s biosphere. Life support system such as water-sources, forests and wildlife are destroyed everyday to serve the mining companies profit motive. Read the rest of this entry »

Borehole Drilling Machine sabotaged in solidarity with the Happendon Wood Action Camp (UK)

November 1st, 2010

29 October 2010

“Extensive damage has been caused to a mobile vertical borehole drilling machine at the proposed Glentaggart East open cast coal mine in South Lanarkshire. This action, taken during the night of the 29th of October, was carried out anonymously by those acting in solidarity with The Happendon Wood Action Camp (THWAC), and in support of the residents of the Douglas Valley.

The sabotage was carried out as an act of resistance to Scottish Coal’s recently submitted proposals to begin open cast coal mining on a new site between the current Glentaggart and Mainshill mines and to begin work at two new sites in the area, including yet another extension to Broken Cross as well as in Auldton Hights, nearby Lesmahagow, South Lanarkshire.

No longer shall Scottish Coal and South Lanarkshire Council be allowed to continue their rape and pillage of the land. We refuse to stand by as they rip open the ground and gouge out its flesh for their profit and at the local communities detriment. We take this action as a statement of the fact that we will not see human greed create a world where the food is too posionous to eat, the water is too defiled to drink and the air is too polluted to breathe, whilst all around us the climate is thrown into chaos as the sky falls on our heads whilst the seas come up to our necks.

End Civ Now!”

Solidarity with the comrades of Revolutionary Struggle (Greece)

November 1st, 2010

We believe that the death of Lambros Foundas by the uniformed murderers as well as the arrests of the six fighters for their participation or for their alleged participation in the Revolutionary Struggle, are integral facts of their historical-social frame. We consider them as the first and heavy losses in the new phase of growth of class war that has been signaled by the capitalistic crisis. We feel that Lambros did not simply leave one day of March, but fighting on the eve of a general strike, while the six arrested as well as all the imprisoned fighters, are missing from us in the streets in these important as well as difficult days that have come, these days where the subversive-liberating argument must and can be applied with new intensity and momentum.

The three comrades who took responsibility for the actions of Revolutionary Struggle show that fighting for what you believe in is not a task that only the “elite” can take on. Its in everyone that has suffered in the system that has been created to control us. The state knows they are the real terrorists and as long as no one is fighting back they have nothing to fear. Its time to show them enough is enough and attack it with all means available.

“And if the terrorists Papandreou and Chrysohoidis are laughing (in vain) about our arrests; if they believe they have thus guaranteed the necessary security for their social-fascist party to easily continue imposing their criminal projects on society, wagging their tails to please their American masters; if they are hoping they have eliminated a serious threat to their regime, we assure them that it will not be so easy to do away with us.

While we live and breathe, we will do everything possible to cause trouble for their antisocial, criminal projects.

And if our persecutors and this country’s political establishment believe they have all of society on their side, if they believe most people see us as a “social threat,” they are wrong.” Excerpt from the Political Letter to Society from the Revolutionary Struggle members (See 325 #8 for the full text).

A few notes on the appeal trial against the Salento anarchists (Italy)

October 28th, 2010

A story already written? A few notes on the appeal trial against the Salento anarchists.

Ideas and laws, passion and social peace.

This story has often showed strong conflicts between those who expressed freely their ideas and those who attempted to repress them; between those who struggled with determination so that migrants were not locked up for not having an ID document, and those who boasted that locking up migrants was a question of security. On the one side the anarchists, on the other police, magistrates, the Church on charge of a CPT [immigration detention centre], journalists and politicians. All this, however, does not give a complete picture of what has happened and of what is still at stake. Read the rest of this entry »

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.
