May 9th, 2011

Chronology and Statement from PPLP Kulon Progo
About the kidnapping of Tukidjo by the Kulon Progo Regional Police

PT JMI’s iron ore mining plans claim a victim again: Tukidjo.

Sunday, 1 May 2011 at 11.00 in the morning : 9 police officers arrived via a single car from the direction of PT JMI’s Pilot Project heading to Tukidjo’s farm in Gupit village in Kulon Progo. Three of them then exited the car and approached Tukidjo, who was taking a break from working on the farm. The police then said that the Head of the Kulon Progo Police Intelligence Force was waiting inside the car, and wanted to speak with him. The police said; “We only want to ask for information”. Out of curiosity and innocence, Tukidjo followed them to the car. When he was standing beside the car he was forced to get in, afterwards the windows were rolled up, and the car quickly sped away from the farm. Read the rest of this entry »

Barcelona : A Combative May Day Regained (Catalunya)

May 5th, 2011

May Day 2011 comes on the heels of two general strikes (29S, in September, called for by all the unions, and 27G, in January, called only by the anarchosyndicalist and radical independent unions). These strikes saw the creation of over half a dozen neighborhood assemblies and a periodic coordination between them, as well as other groups organizing at a citywide level. The confrontational barricades and pickets of the minoritarian unions (CNT and CGT) were vindicated, as were the insurrectionary anarchists’ tactics of attack and idea of an uncontrolled generalization of the struggle.

Patricia Heras kills herself after being sentenced for a crime she did not commit (Catalunya)

May 5th, 2011

Background: Barcelona / February 4 2006: There was a fight with the police outside a massive party in a squatted building (not run by people from the movement though) where some 1500 people were attending. In the confused events that followed a cop was hit by a potted plant thrown from a balcony causing him severe injuries that left him paraplegic. Importantly, the original police report that attributed the injuries of the cop to a potted plant has mysteriously vanished. The arrested and hunted of that moment were randomly taken from among passers-by; people leaving from the party, even a couple of young guys who happened to have the bad luck of having a motorbike accident driving through the area.. a well known and classic tale of police revenge… they were brutality beaten and fitted up.

A small contribution of the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire about Solidarity (Greece)

May 4th, 2011

From Actforfreedomnow/Bourbouras


A small contribution of the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire about Solidarity.


Until the day comes we will remain with the head held high….

1. Solidarity is our weapon.

Many things have been written and said about solidarity. Usually when there have been so many discussions and so many texts have circulated on a matter, it ends up trite, predictable and without any particular interest. It seems as if its content has run out and it’s constantly being repeated.

We believe there are no trite practices, but trite ways of thinking. Particularly today, in the suspicious days we are living in, with the dozens of imprisoned urban guerrillas and anarchists, we should sharpen the blade of solidarity and remove it from its repeated stereotypes that confine us within the nefarious cycle of “freedom to whichever comrade”.

Call for an escalated Anti-Genetic Engineering Struggle from Silvia, Costa, Billy, and Marco on hunger strike May 1 to 28 (Switzerland)

May 4th, 2011

From Culmine, translated by War on Society:

From May 1 to 28 we undertake a new hunger strike on relays of seven days each, as a new joint initiative to provide continuity for the links and relationships already intertwined with other strikes and many initiatives of solidarity and struggles outside of prison, and also in response to attempts by the Swiss Federal Prosecutor and by international repression to denigrate, isolate and stamp out the struggle.

Attempts that will always be in vain in the face of our determination not to break the thread that binds ourselves to you comrades outside but instead continue to weave together, as part of the revolutionary movement, the movement of Earth and Animal Liberation. Read the rest of this entry »

Classics Freeshop and Emporium face eviction in Bristol (UK)

May 4th, 2011

After the civil unrest following the raid and evictions on Telepathic Heights, the stakes are clearly raised for all parties for any future eviction.

Meanwhile, three more people will appear in Bristol Magistrates Court this morning, including one charged with “Attempted Murder”. It is notable that many of those charged with serious offences have been of ‘minors’ – i.e. those under the age of 17. It seems the young and naive will bear the brunt of the polices’ judicial revenge. Read the rest of this entry »

Fires set in attack at Probation unit in Bristol (UK)

May 4th, 2011

4 April 2011

“last night we torched three big vans inside the “secured” compound of the probation office in saint pauls – just off stokes croft, bristol. we recognise the probation service as a soft-cog of the workings of the state. keeping tabs and tags on you, trying to make you calm down, when all within your vision and grasp reeks of the shit they would have us swallow. they don’t crack your skull or wear a padded uniform but they sure as hell sell you out as a living breathing human being, these robots of the courts should be treated with contempt at every chance.

the defenders of the existing order – and indeed its’ false critics – want stoke’s croft /saint pauls to return to the quasi-militarized surveyed “normality” of Capitalist Peace. for those who break with this cage and choose to start their battle for complete liberation here and now in their surroundings, who choose the fierce joy and sometimes overwhelming passion of a life striking against the tensions mediating their existence, this Peace can no longer exist. WE DO NOT WANT TO RETURN TO THEIR “NORMALITY”, NOR COULD WE WITHOUT FEELING THE WEIGHT IN OUR HEARTS OF THE LIE. as we have seen, this tension is not felt by us only…

in revenge and solidarity for all the arrested in the stoke’s croft riots and telepathic heights eviction, for the taunton squatters, for those raided in london, brighton, edinburgh, bologna… but mostly for ourselves.

we also send our warmest anarchist greetings to our unknown comrades in fire in nottingham, and welcome the recent attacks on banks in birmingham. we return the salute from the 1st may statement from linz.

until next time”

Brief Report about Revolutionary May 1st (Germany)

May 4th, 2011

The weekend of the 1st of May 2011 has seen several moments of refusal of the existent igniting into flames of rage.

In the city of Hamburg, a demonstration was called against the gentrification of some former popular districts (such as around the former squatted houses in the Hafenstraße, St. Pauli district), the commercialization of the city and the threatening eviction of the squatted social center „Rote Flora“, existing outside legality since 1989.

Solidarity action for anarchist prisoners from comrades in Lublin (Poland)

May 1st, 2011



27 April 2011


“It doesn’t matter that you never reach the skies.
The most important things is that you never should stop dreaming about it.”

At night, 27.04, we carried out a small symbolic action of solidarity using paint bombs. We attacked the bank which is placed about 100 meters from a police station. Through this action we want to express our Solidarity and respect to each anarchist political prisoner, especially in Greece and Chile. Those who hold heavy consequences of their own political choices with pride and honour and do not bend under prison repression. Those who probably suffer painful tension between their family life and the rebel way which they decided to follow.

We also took this action to celebrate May Day, instead of powerless manifestations of own weakness by marching in small groups of activists on Polish streets that day.

We refuse the realities of life in this country, where gloomy patriotic-Catholic tradition teaches people to see enemies in other neighboring nations instead of in the capitalist elite, which rules everyday life. We don’t care about the catastrophe in Smolensk and hysteria of masses who despair that they lost their lords.

Unemployment or work, which makes you more unhappy? – or even worse: you feel happy when you can pay rent, bills and food. Work-emigration of thousands of young people who are forced to look for a way to survive, lack of money in the public sector and at the same moment the government transfers money to the Polish Army which occupies the Arab world (Iraq, Afghanistan) – this is really a fucking catastrophe and misery of this system – the colorful, empty bubble. The existential emptiness, lack of generational identity and lack of life purpose are suppressed by alcohol, drugs, television celebrities and thoughtless fun.

We oppose Pope Wojtyla (so-called “John Paul II”) beatification which will take place on May 1st. This is an attempt to steal this important date. Wojtyla, this guy, with golden rings, helped to destroy the revolutionary movement of liberation theology and he was doing this alongside with Latin American regimes. He was also silent on church pedophilia, blocked the reforms within Catholic church and was a political friend of working class enemies like Reagan and Thatcher.

We wish more courage to the comrades who have a policeman inside theirs heads, which does not allow them to take radical actions, even when that doesn’t mean serious risk.

We send greetings to our comrades from Silesia in Poland, who as a first in this country made a small Solidarity action with Cells of Fire prisoners.

SOLIDARITY WITH CONSPIRACY CELLS OF FIRE, REVOLUTIONARY STRUGGLE AND THE URBAN GUERRILLAS !

SOLIDARITY WITH TENANTS PROTESTS IN POLAND !

FIRE TO THE PRISONS !

War, Catastrophe, Democracy, Prison – We Want Revolution

May 1st, 2011

Translated from www.finimondo.org

Text of a leaflet distributed in Brussels (Belgium) in April 2011.

In a time when words seem to lose their meaning, when the language of power tries to penetrate all our conversations, we think it is even more indispensable to make an effort in order to speak clearly. Let’s stop parroting what the newspapers say, television shows and the powerful want us to believe. The point is neither to agree at all costs nor to convert everything, but it is to try to speak with our mouth, our words, our pains and our hopes.

War… or revolution

The beginning of NATO bombardments against the forces loyal to Gaddafi in Libya marked a fatal step. At the beginning, what was undoubtedly an armed insurrection of a significant part of the population against the regime, is slowly transforming into a military war. Apart from some self-organized forms of resistance, which all kinds of authority define as ‘irregular’, the insurrection in Libya seems to have degenerated in a conflict between opposing armies. And it is not by chance that the ‘irregulars’ down there have always been very suspicious towards the ‘official opposition’, which has copied the hierarchies, grades and structures of command of the Gaddafi’s army.

Letter from Nicu, imprisoned anarchist of Bologna (Italy)

May 1st, 2011

Letter from Nicu, one of the anarchists imprisoned in La Dozza prison of Bologna.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

We have never cared about the media lynching and police repression that have been hitting the anarchists and friends of Fuoriluogo for years, not only because we know that in Bologna whoever struggles against the injustices of this world is inflicted the same treatment (harassments, daily controls, phone tapping, searches and arrests) but also because in spite of all these obstacles we have always continued on our own way, with our initiatives and the libertarian spirit animating us.

Molotov attack on Italian consulate in solidarity with the comrades arrested in Bologna (Catalunya)

May 1st, 2011

Communique from Informa-Azione, translated by War on Society:

18 April 2011

The night of April 18 to 19 we attacked the Italian consulate in Barcelona, located at Carrer Mallorca 270, with a molotov cocktail.

This gesture is intended as a cry of solidarity to the comrades of Bologna and Ferrara affected by repression, an act of proximity and complicity with the arrested, the raided, the suspects.

We will never stop supporting any struggle which aims at a world without borders, police, states and jails.

‘Cause the real terrorist is not the one who fights for freedom and against barbarism, but those who march under the wing of the law, bomb, kill, rape and lock up.

THE TERRORIST IS THE STATE

“Freedom is not to be told, it is a blind condition, it refuses to be put in writing”

FREEDOM FOR STEFI, ANNA, MARTIN, ROBERT, NICU

“Individualist solidarity is, in any place, out of place”
(Fuoriluogo).
