Against Operation Erebo (Brazil)

October 26th, 2017

AGAINST OPERATION “ÉREBO”

Police started the so called “OPERATION ÉREBO” aiming to prosecute anarchists in Porto Alegre city, south region of the territory under domain of bra$silian state. This operation is an attempt to arrest anarchists that supposedly took part in informal activities since 2013.

About this case, we don’t have nothing to say but the necessary:

WE DON’T SPEAK THE ENEMIES LANGUAGE

It doesn’t matter if they are “guilty” or “innocent”, much less if they were “right” or “wrong”. Morality is the language of trials. We fight against laws, because its oppressive nature exists only for maintaining “order and progress”, both responsible for human misery. We stand against prisons and therefore we do not cooperate to fill this human warehouse. So we strongly support the 10 anarchists prosecuted by the state’s genocidal machine.

WE DO NOT BELIEVE THE MEDIATIC SPECTACLE

As always, the media takes advantage from this recent episode to form its spectacle. The news tries to paint anarchists as part of one single group as a way to give deputy Paulo César Jardim and his dogs from the Civil Police some credits. The moment of the rotten nation we live in is very fragile and therefore it is clear for us that media has only political interests which we despise.

THERE’S NO WAY TO ARREST AN IDEA

Neither one nor a thousand police operations will be capable to, as they say, “demobilize” our fight for freedom. Anarchy rises from the gaps of authority and technological domain, and that is why the powerful won’t stop us. Our passion for freedom is stronger than every cell.


FOR TOTAL FREEDOM!!!
WE ARE EVERYWHERE!!!

Police Raid Anarchist Residences & Spaces on the Eve of the Anarchist Book Fair in Porto Alegre (Brazil)

October 26th, 2017

This morning (October 25th) the civil police in Rio Grande de Sul executed several search warrants on residences and collective spaces in the metropolitan region of Porto Alegre (RS) to collect materials for investigation. Police allege that the addresses are linked to a group that would have carried out attacks on vehicles, political party headquarters, police stations, banks and car dealerships. The action was violent and the police assaulted the people who live in these spaces and took some of them to the police station.

There were a total of 10 search and seizure orders, where anarchist material (posters, books, banners, etc), fantasy masks, spray cans and other common objects, including plastic bottles filled with plastic bags were seized and reported as being molotov cocktails. Not even police officers are so ignorant as to think that once can make molotov cocktails with plastic bottles and without a flammable liquid. In fact these bottles were going to be used as ecological bricks for bio-construction. Read the rest of this entry »

Limoges: Arson Attack Targeting Energy Company Enedis Destroys 20 Vehicles (France)

October 26th, 2017

Note from Insurrection News, 25.10.17: During the night of October 23rd to 24th, a fire destroyed twenty vehicles belonging to the company Enedis (formerly known as ERDF), the electric power grid operator for most of France. Graffiti was left at the scene reading ‘LINKY GET OUT OF HERE!”. The next day Le Populaire du Center, a mainstream newspaper in the region announced that they had received a short communique from an anonymous group of women, using the acronym DECCLIN, claiming responsibility for the attack.

According to the communique, the women who carried out the arson attack did so to protest the lack of action by the authorities against Linky so-called ‘smart’ meters. Linky meters are basically a type of mini-computer similar to meters used in other parts of the world that are installed in homes to allow power companies to monitor electricity useage.

Santiago Maldonado Presente! (Argentina)

October 24th, 2017

The murder of Santiago Maldonado has triggered a series of actions in Argentina. Santiago disappeared on August 1st, kidnapped by the gendarmerie, and on October 20th, it was confirmed that a dead body found in the Chubut river belonged to our compañero Santiago Maldonado. We hope that the guilty will suffer the worst possible vengeance.

Death to the murderous state, Santiago presente!

Today like last night we continue in the streets – SANTIAGO PRESENTE!

NOW YOU ARE PART OF THE EARTH THAT YOU LOVED SO MUCH

Sad are the hours that we are living. On October 20th, Sergio Maldonado (brother of Santiago) confirmed what we were all so afraid of. The body planted by the gendarmerie in the Chubut river is the compañero Santiago Maldonado.

The gendarmerie are responsible. The State is responsible. Because it was them who took him from the rebel territory of Cushamen on the first of August. Read the rest of this entry »

Erklärung Soligruppe Gülaferit zu den Ereignissen am 8.10. in der JVA Lichtenberg (Deutschland)

October 24th, 2017

Demo zum Frauenknast nach rassistischem Übergriff! 28.10. um 18 Uhr S+U Frankfurter Allee

Hallo Genoss*innen,

wir teilen diesen Aufruf für eine Demo am Samstag. Bitte verbreitet ihn weiter und unterstützt die Demonstration. Von Draußen können wir eine solidarische Antwort an die Gefangene senden und dem Knast zeigen, dass das was drinnen passiert nicht unbeobachtet bleibt!

Erklärung Soligruppe Gülaferit zu den Ereignissen am 8.10. in der JVA Lichtenberg

Knapp drei Monate vor der Haftentlassung* unserer Freundin und Genossin Gülaferit lässt das Knastsystem die Situation eskalieren. Die fortwährenden Provokationen und Schikanen gegen Gülaferit gipfeln in einem brutalen Angriff.

Was ist passiert: Bei einem Besuch schilderte uns Gülaferit wie es am 8.10. zu dem Angriff kam. Sie ging in die Zelle einer Mitgefangenen um das permanente Abspielen extrem lauter Musik zu stoppen. Daraufhin ging die Mitgefangene auf sie los und attackierte sie mit Fäusten. Ebenfalls drückte die Mitgefangene Gülaferit mit einem Besenstiel vor dem Hals an die Wand und beschimpfte sie rassistisch. Gülaferit wurde verletzt und musste auf der Krankenstation behandelt werden, sie trug an mehreren Körperstellen Hämatome (Blaue Flecken) davon. Read the rest of this entry »

Statement by the Kurdish-Speaking Anarchist Forum (KAF)

October 24th, 2017

No to State, No to war. Yes for self-administration and the Social revolution

Immediate call to all our comrades Anarchists and Libertarians wherever they are

A direct and special call to our comrades Anarchists and Libertarians Arabic-speaking

No to State, No to war. Yes for self-administration and the Social revolution

For years and years we, anarchists and libertarians in Iraqi “Kurdistan”, Europe and other countries all our publicities and our slogan have been about Yes for self-administration in everywhere and for all the communities, but No to State.

We raised our voice against the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) and its very recent scenario of referendum on “independent Kurdish State”. We are very sure the other anarchists among Arab, Turkish, Assyrian and others had the same attitude. We also believe the same attitude from our anarchist comrades throughout the world to say no to State, authority, nationalism and to be against the nationalist and against pro-fascist war.

Incendiary anti-militarist actions against arms-companies (Belgium)

October 24th, 2017

Lucrosum et decorum est pro patria facere?
[Is it profitable and proper to produce for the fatherland?]

They don’t speak Latin in Belgium.
At about 2 am on Monday 25th September the residents of Malines (a town half way between Brussels and Anvers) were woken by a string of detonations. As they looked out of their windows they saw a huge fire blazing in the buildings of a local company. In spite of the intervention of many fire brigade vehicles, nothing could be done. Of the 5,000 square metres of the company, nothing remained. Everything destroyed. A hard blow for Varec, a company that produces tracks for tanks and tyres for military vehicles and is a well-known supplier of the Armed Forces in the United States. Read the rest of this entry »

Petr Ryabov is deported and banned from visiting Belarus for 10 years (Belarus, Russia)

October 24th, 2017

16 October 2017, at about 21:00 Petr Ryabov was released from Baranavichi IVS (Temporary detention facility) in Belarus and put under escort on a train to Smolensk, Russia. Department for citizenship and migration of the local militia decided to deport Ryabov and a ban an entry to Belarus for 10 years.

It is also reported that at the station Baranavichi police arrested local human rights activist Alexander Voyteshik, who accompanied Ryabov. A reason could be that Voyteshik videotaped cops, who escorted Ryabov.

We want to remind that Russian philosopher, professor, historian and anarchist Pyotr Ryabov was detained in Baranavichy on October 11 after the lecture “Informal movement of Belarus 1991-2010” and sentenced to 6 days in prison for “dissemination of extremist materials”. At 9th October riot police attacked Ryabov lecture in Grodno and didn’t allow to hold it.

Santiago: University Animal Experimentation Laboratory Trashed, 120 Rats Liberated (Chile)

October 24th, 2017

During the first week of October, 2017, persons unknown were able to enter the University of Chile’s science faculty at the Juan Gomez Milla Campus on Macul and Grecia avenues.

After having previously identified a laboratory for animal experimentation, the unknown persons entered it, released the animals imprisoned there (mainly rodents) and destroyed the infrastructure of the lab along with all the ‘research’ documents that were inside it. The unknown persons managed to escape without being detected or identified.

During the days that followed, it was confirmed that 120 laboratory rodents were released, they were being experimented on to test the physiological effects of climate change. The ‘Institutional Committee for the Care and Use of Animals’ (CICUA) – the name of the organization responsible for approving, supervising and certifying the use of animals for experimentation – stated that the animals were not being abused, and also noted that “most of the released rodents suffer from afflictions and will not survive for long since they require the assistance of humans for their well-being and survival”.

1st Insurrection Festival – Athens (Greece)

October 24th, 2017

Hello,
Some anarchists groups in Exarcheia, Athens, are organizing the 1st Insurrection Festival. The date is November 12, 13, 14. We would appreciate your cooperation to spread the news.

https://insurrectionfestival.noblogs.org/

In solidarity

RdF

Insurrection is the time when a collective body is uprising. Not a collective body with a common identity or ideology but driven by common actions against authority.

Insurrection is the violent entrance of the invisible into the central political scene.

Insurrection is fed from poverty to despair, from rage to need of empowerment and dignity from the social base.

At the end, insurrection is the practical doubt of domination’s structures and any regime. The negation of their omnipotence. If for some of us insurrection must lead to social revolution, or in another way must be a constant situation, the participation this moment should be our common ground.

We are calling this open assembly on to co-organize the First Insurrection Festival. It will be structured around four mains axes :

Political theory
Movement-collective statements
Practices-training
Cultural manifestations

Call for International Solidarity on 16 Nov – Operation Scripta Manent Trial (Italy)

October 14th, 2017

On November 16th, at 10 am, in front of the high security court in Turin, will be held the first hearing of the trial Scripta Manent, and it will be a long-running case, in which 22 anarchist comrades are charged, and seven of them are still in prison.

The repressive State apparatus accuses a part of the anarchist movement of attacking it with the practices of: destructive direct action against its structures and agents, realization and distribution of anarchist publications, and support for revolutionary prisoners.

The theorem of prosecutor Sparagna is that the positions of accused comrades are isolated and distant from the anarchist context.

It is a blatant attempt to factionalise and confine the anarchism to certain fenced enclosures, legal and interpretative.

We demolish the attempt to isolate these comrades and we affirm that the practices and positions they are accused of, constitute a patrimony of all anarchists and revolutionaries, and we reaffirm our closeness and our solidarity with the defendants.

We make a call to take part in the gathering on Thursday, November 16th, at 10 am, in front of the high security court of “le Vallette” Turin prison, and we relaunch the call for international solidarity with all anarchist, rebel and revolutionary prisoners; in any place and in accordance with the modalities that each person considers more appropriate.
