San Francisco: Anarchists attack Indonesian consulate with Paint-bombs against May Day repression (USA)

June 3rd, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO, EE.UU.: ANARQUISTAS ATACAN EL CONSULADO DE INDONESIA CON BOMBAS DE PINTURA CONTRA LA REPRESIÓN DEL PRIMERO DE MAYO

On June 1, a modest mob of 20+ anarchists in San Francisco carried out an attack in solidarity with our comrades in so-called Indonesia where 600+ anarchists were arrested this May Day. We threw 60 paintbombs and heavily tagged the Indonesian Consulate with circle-(A)s to send a message to the Indonesian government that despite the distance between us and our comrades, the State is not safe and will always be attacked.

The actions of the Indonesian comrades, simple gestures of paint on walls, resonated with us. In the afterimages of their act, and in their call for solidarity, we recognized friends across the dying ocean. Even more than expressing our contempt for the Indonesian State, we want to convey our love to the comrades struggling within and against its false borders. Ferocity and Strength to those facing repression and those on the run. Read the rest of this entry »

Arrest of Two Anarchists in Brescia, Italy

June 1st, 2019

On May 22, Anarchist comrades Juan Antonio Sorroche Fernandez and Manuel Oxoli were arrested in Brescia, Italy for their alleged involvement in the bombing of the headquarters of the far-right wing Lega party in Villorba, Treviso on August 16, 2018.

The Lega is the ruling party of Italy, led by Matteo Salvini, who has aligned himself with fascist and far-right figures around the world, including Trump and Bolsonaro, and supports a racist anti-immigrant policy.

From Croce Nera Anarchica:

“The lawyer was able to meet his companions and found them strong and determined.

Further updates coming soon.

To write to Juan: Juan Antonio Sorroche Fernandez, c.c. Canton Mombello via Spalto S. Marco 20, 25100 (BS), ITALIA”

[$hile] Recuento de la actividad “Memoria y Kontrakultura”

June 1st, 2019

El domingo 19 de mayo, con amor y rabia dimos vida a la actividad “Memoria y Kontrakultura” conmemorando 10 años de la muerte en acción del Punki Mauri.

En esencia la Anarquía es anticarcelaria, por lo mismo generamos un espacio para difundir la movilización que está ocurriendo en las distintas cárceles del territorio contra la ley 321 que transforma la libertad condicional de un derecho a un beneficio penitenciario y además duplica el mínimo de tiempo en prisión necesario para poder optar a la condicional.

PALABRAS DEL COMPAÑERO MARCELO VILLARROEL

EN: Statement by Anarchist Prisoner Marcelo Villarroel on the 10th Anniversary of the Death of Mauricio Morales

A 10 años de la muerte en kombate de Mauricio Morales… A todxs lxs ke konfontan el presente desde la autonomia, kon memoria insurrekta, en resistencia y subversion!!

Hace 10 años murió Mauricio Morales Duarte, el punky maury. Una noche de fines de mayo se eskuchó un estruendo, en las inmediaciones del centro sur de santiago, en las cerkanias de la eskuela de gendarmeria el punky maury partia en su eterna bicikleta a la ruta de akellxs ke han perdido la vida en este ejercicio kotidiano de kerer ser libres konfrontando al dominio en todos los espacios de la realidad.

En ese entonces estaba prisionero en la unidad 11 de newken Argentina kuando en una fria mañana de mayo supe de lo sucedido. El inevitable dolor de la perdida se multiplikó asi komo la rabia y el orgullo. Desde un kompañerismo no afin manifiesto mi reiterado respeto a tu opción de vida en lucha komo aporte a la tensión anarkista e insurrexional komo expresión inekivoka de la guerra social.

Berlin, Germany: For a Black May – Attack Against Securitas by ‘Free Foxes’ FAI-FRI

June 1st, 2019

“Burn all prisons, with or without walls!” – The call for a Subversive May, as an extension of the proposal for an Anarchist May 1st in Berlin, is understood by us as a call to extend the attack on different levels. We agree with the idea not to confine ourselves to one day but to constantly and unpredictably attack the functioning of existing society and prove that its security is an illusion.

The apparatus of power includes not only the murderers of the State, but also the mercenaries of the private security companies. Securitas vehicles once parked undisturbed in the GESOBAG housing estate where they act as security guards to prevent the intervention of cops during conflicts with tenants or tensions with the property management. Securitas is also engaged in surveillance work in prisons and public spaces worldwide. Read the rest of this entry »

Collection of direct actions in solidarity with imprisoned comrade Dimitris Koufontinas (Greece)

June 1st, 2019

[Hunger Strike By Prisoner Dimitris Koufontinas Ends in Success – AMW]

Athens, Greece: Responsibility Claim for the Arson Attack against Eurobank branch

We were taught that everything is commodity, everything can be exchanged. We didn’t understand the small print of history: that we are commodity too; working power that is exchanged with peanuts, prayers and curses, and a daily reverence to alienation, to the shattering of every human dignity. We referred to the wage slavery as our highest value and intention. We didn’t feel the waves of history carving our skin, we didn’t feel the razor blades of political economy chiseling our motion.

We ‘ve shown discipline to our times’ teachings, which are nothing more than the dominant narrative that wants us producing and consuming machines, that wants for itself the monopoly of the decision about what is included and what is excluded by its normativity. A dominant narrative by a dominant world that leaves its bloody marks on us everyday, fracturing the individual, feeding it with oppression and neuroses, killing every desire for experimentation and vitality and replacing them with miserable micro-rivalries and intrigue, disguising the emptiness.

Mayday Repression: Statement from Bandung Anti-Fascist Front on International Solidarity (Indonesia)

May 24th, 2019

POLITICAL STATEMENT OF FRONT ANTI FASIS BANDUNG (BANDUNG ANTI FASCIST FRONT) ON FUND FROM INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY AFTER BANDUNG MAYDAY 2019

Police brutality during International Labour Day May 1st of 2019 in some cities, has append dark record of state apparatus to civil society’s life. In Bandung, more than 700 comrades raided, striped off, bald-shaved, spray-painted, beaten up, and others worst things ever done to them by police. Same things also happen to comrades in others city such as Jakarta, Surabaya, Malang, and Makasar, they happened to be the victim of police brutality. That occurrence arouse many condemn to police and military from around the world.

As respond, many solidarity comes from individuals and organization toward the 2019 Mayday movement. Some Indonesian organizations then raise funds locally even internationally, as solidarity to those comrades who raided and threaten brutally by the police.

Until now, we “Front Anti Fasis Bandung” (Bandung Anti Fascist Front) have agreed to:

1. Have never run any fund raising nor receive any donation from International Solidarity.

2. Any necessity related to legal advocation and etc, is handled by local self-powered.

3. We still need all our comrades abroad to organize mass movement, campaign, political statement, and mobilization as a display of International Solidarity for us.

We’d like to sincerely say our biggest thanks to all of our solidarity comrades whose until today still shown their support and keep the flame of resistance on fire!

LONG LIVE DISOBEDIENCE!

A visit to an under-construction boutique of luxury apartments in Athens (Greece)

May 24th, 2019

Source of translation + pictures : https://athens.indymedia.org/post/1597841/

Tourism grows like flowers in the spring, security cameras appear like leaves to protect the peaceful citizens. Everything must be clear, beautiful and in developmental path. The appearance of the city should fit into the list of Aegean Airlines. Tourists do not need a lot, some chain stores and hipster coffeeshops, a good guide to explaining which places to avoid, and something that fits into the “authentic Greek experience”. We look forward to the next group of tourists who will take a selfie around the Acropolis.At the same time, our neighborhood degrades slowly. People who can not respond to the increase of rent price are either forced to find another home to stay or are forced to comply with the new rules. At the same time, investors are exacerbating the situation as they buy old houses, which are being demolished and, in their place, they are building luxurious housing estates. Apartments renovated for short-term rent (AIRBNB) as well as public spaces and parks are privatized reducing free and open spaces. The game is as old as the same city is listening to the name of private property . The rule is also simple: whoever does not own, will pay, whoever does not pay will be expelled. People who are not part of the capitalist machine, little illegal sellers and homeless people, illegal graffiti and political posters, life in general, and things that can not be sold will disappear. We know very well that nothing will be given to us because we do not belong to the owners’ side. We know that we do not even fit into this suffocating capitalist context, nor do we want to keep up with the logic of bosses and investors. That is why we are fighting against their expansionist and developmental plans.On Tuesday 9/04, we visited a boutique (as they call it) of luxury apartments, which is in its final stage of implementation, on Kolokotroni street between Koukaki and Petralona. Kolokotroni Street is a street with several old or abandoned houses, and it seems that the crows of the construction company from Glyfada have put it in the goal. During our visit, we put a banner that read: “RICH PEOPLE GET BACK TO YOUR SUBURBS, HOUSING IS NOR A LIFESTYLE NEITHER A PRODUCT, IT’S A NEED (A)”, we throw paint on the freshly painted walls and advertisements of the company, write slogans and open holes or even completely tear apart interior walls. Nevertheless, investors insist on forcing us to a second visit and today they have put cameras thinking that we will stop.

OUTSIDE THE INVESTORS FROM OUR NEIGHBORHOOD AGAINST AIRBNB AND LUXURY APARTMENTS NO ATTACK TOWARDS OUR LIFE WILL STAY WITHOUT ANSWER IF WE DON’T GET ORGANIZED IN ALL NEIGHBOURHOODS, OUR CITIES WILL BECOME MODERN PRISONS

June 11, 2019 statement from Marius Mason (USA)

May 23rd, 2019

I can hardly believe that it has been another year passing and it is J11 again. I am so thankful for this annual touch point as an opportunity to reach out to my community on the outside and to take stock of the year. It is hard to take in that I have been locked up for more than a decade, and even more sobering to realize how many comrades have been incarcerated for MULTIPLE decades. They have my infinite admiration for maintaining their integrity and for keeping their vision alive through so many years.

I always want to thank all the good folks who do solidarity events to mark this day. I am sure that as I do, all of the anarchist prisoners draw much strength and courage from knowing that you all have our back and have worked so hard to send that immense love across borders and through the bars. There has been way too much hate and “othering” around borders these days. It’s a powerful message to send love instead, and to question the legitimacy of any borders that separate or devalue us as living beings, all equally sharing this planet.
