Lucasville: What led to the uprising (USA)

December 19th, 2009

by Edward Julious on behalf of Cleveland Anarchist Black Cross

On Easter Sunday, April 11, 1993, a riot broke out at the infamous Southern Ohio Correctional Facility at Lucasville. Lucasville had a reputation as one of the most violent and predatory prisons in the country. The prison and the atmosphere at the prison had become extraordinarily tense since the arrival of Warden Arthur Tate Jr. in 1990. Read the rest of this entry »

Attack against "Komsomolskaya Pravda" in Moscow (Russia)

December 15th, 2009

10 December 2009 : An anonymous group of anarchists and anti-fascists committed a small attack against tabloid paper “Komsomolskaya Pravda”, which is one of the most circulated in Russia (according to some sources they sell 5 million copies). Some windows were broken, some rocks and smoke bombs thrown.

Statement of the attackers (in Russian)

They state that they targeted KP as it is viciously anti-migrant and anti-antifa, and they have a number of well-known Nazis working there.

Short video

For some reason this action was a very controversial and there is a huge amount of disclaimers in various sites and blogs.

How To Radicalise Muslim Prisoners

I want to highlight an incident that has seriously affected my situation in prison. Firstly, allow me to put what happened into context. I am serving a ten year sentence. Since my conviction I have been exemplary in my behaviour and incurred no disciplinary reports or adverse intelligence reports prior to the incident I am about to describe. I am of Pakistan origin, although until relatively recently had not experienced any discriminatory treatment in prison or ill-treatment at the hands of other prisoners. Read the rest of this entry »

Urgent Communique from Athens Anarchists (Greece)

December 10th, 2009

9-12-2009 : RECENT DAYS HAVE SEEN INCREDIBLE JUNTA ORGIES IN GREECE

EXAMPLES:

1 ) Cops with guns in the demonstrations.
2 ) Motorbike raids against protesters.
3 ) Cops following peaceful demonstrators in their tracks, wild and indiscriminate arrests.
4 ) Staged events such as the alleged assassination attempt against the rector of the Pritanea.
5 ) An enormous number of vague and even criminal charges and arresting people young and old.
6 ) Closing schools on the pretext of swine flu and the merciless beating of students who wanted to get to their schools.
7 ) Undercover cops kidnapping young protesters.
8 ) Higher level visible collaboration between Golden Dawn neo-nazis and the Police.
9 ) Secret meetings between Chrysohoides and the bosses of the TV channels and journalists to decide on how TV reporting was going to be done over these days.
10 ) Secret covert cameras and helicopters hovering constantly.
11 ) Zero tolerance makes a bitter orange and a stone against a bank a felony and a pretext for a police attack.
12 ) BAN on demonstrations and political gatherings in the conversion areas with massive police intimidation and outrageous controls/databasing.
13 ) Hacker attacks on indymedia, and sites of squatted places and TVXS (no borders TV), deleting comments.
14 ) Invasion and PREVENTIVE ARRESTS in many self-managed spaces.
15 ) In an Orwellian way anarchists and the rebels are referred to “fascists and Nazis!”.
16 ) Junta-like removal of asylum [in the universities].

AND HOW MUCH MORE!

Some of these things happened in isolation, and some only happened before under the junta in 1967-1974; others have never happened before, only now.

They never ever happened altogether in such a short space of time!

It seems that the crash which happened here and they are hiding, like the indomitable December, has the power to activate an emergency plan, a new ‘PLASTER CAST’ [repeating the pronuncement of the junta in 1967].

These moments are more than historical. We are witnessing for the first time since 1967 an attempt to impose a fascist police coup. If a parliamentary democracy are able to commit those crimes, the junta is something different and we have all have begun to understand that. The anarchist slogans in the streets are beginning to say bluntly: “DOWN THE JUNTA”.
A collusion of prosecutors, rectors, the upper classes, TV media and police, and still we do not know what other local and foreign forces have been mustered. You hear of missing people. The climate is heavy like under the junta.

THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO BE SILENT! THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO RELAX!
EVERYBODY IN THE STREETS – SQUATS EVERYWHERE!
PLEASE HELP TO SMASH DOWN THE GREEK JUNTA!
THE REGIME IS GOING THE WAY OF 1967!

Wake up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Employment agency 'Manpower' attacked in Bristol (UK)

December 8th, 2009

6 December 2009 : Damage action against strike breaking, scumbag profiteer company

“On the night of 6th December Manpower offices in Bristol were attacked with hammers. All the big plate glass windows on the front of their office were smashed. This action was taken in the face of seemingly overwhelming attacks on workers everywhere by capital and state. Manpower were responsible for hiring 30,000 non unionised “workers” (read “scabs”) to break the recent strike action by postal workers. Well, some of us don’t forget that, as the old saying goes, an attack on one is an attack on all!

Manpower are just a symbol, the epitome of agencies profitting from the race to the bottom, forcing thousands into shitty jobs with no dignity, security or chance of escape, struggling so hard to kep heads above the shit. They oil the wheels of the corporate state , where people are totally expendable to the needs of the bosses and the profit machine. Huge pay increases and rewards for the few, cuts and threats for the rest of us.

The class divide between rich and poor is growing all the time, so we think it’s time we started acting like it!

In the social war, they have nothing to offer us but target practice. Fight the power!”

Solidarity with Mindaugus Lenartavicius – Smash RBS (UK)

December 4th, 2009

The facts are well known; the theatre of the London G20, the policing arena which left one man dead and scores injured was a spectacle of state/media hype and constructed ‘disorder’. Already April is remembered only for the lies of the police and the ‘kettle’ trap which they set for anyone intending to voice their discontent with an economic system which has betrayed and exploited people everywhere.
