New Democracy Headquarters in Greece Bombed

September 21st, 2019

A regional headquarters of New Democracy (ND), Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, was attacked at dawn on Thursday (12⁄09) with an explosive device, in another incident of these characteristics in just two weeks.

Tenants from a neighboring building alerted the fire department. The attack caused extensive property damage. So far, no group has taken responsibility for the offensive.

“This is the second attack on ND’s offices in a few days, this time in Pefki, it’s a continuous attack on democracy.”

Italy: Repressive operation for the demonstration of February 9th in Turin

September 21st, 2019

While waiting for more updates, we learn from the regime’s press that this morning (September 20th, 2019) a police operation led by the Digos (“political police” force of the State police) of Turin led to 14 precautionary measures throughout Italy. The alleged crimes (according to what reported by the regime’s media: “aggravated injuries”, “resistance to a public official”, “damage” and “dirtying”) are related to the demonstration of February 9th, 2019, in Turin following the eviction of Asilo Occupato, on February 7th in the context of the “Scintilla” repressive operation (for which, at present, only one comrade, Silvia, remains in prison).

On February 9th a march in response to the repressive operation moved through the streets of Turin, also trying to get closer to Asilo (completely surrounded by police and carabinieri, and meanwhile devastated by the police and the workers assigned to the closure of the building), to then turn in conflict against the city and against what daily frames the existence of the oppressed. During the demonstration, some people were arrested and later detained at the “Le Vallette” prison, and then released a few days later.

Chile: Explosive device at the headquarters of the Chilean police was deactivated a few hours before the arrival of President Piñera

September 18th, 2019

Chillán, Chile: An explosive device at the headquarters of the Chilean police was deactivated a few hours before the arrival of President Piñera (August 20, 2019)

During the early hours of August 20, 2019, in Chillán, a suspicious object attracted the attention of the security device implemented pending the visit of President Sebastián Piñera.

Outside the main investigative barracks of the PDI (“Policía de Investigaciones de Chile”, which together with the Carabineros de Chile is one of the two police bodies of the Chilean State), located in Vega de Saldías, and which borders a police headquarters located in the center of Chillán, an explosive device was deposited without initially arousing suspicion.

Contribution to the ‘International Meeting Against The Techno-Sciences’ by anarchist Dino Giagtzoglou

Contribution to the international meeting against the techno-sciences (Italy – July 2019) by anarchist Dino Giagtzoglou, prisoner of the Greek state

Comrades

I start this letter with a certainty. I am sure that our life experiences are very different as well as the starting points of the struggle of each and every one. I also think that with many of you we have different ideological origins and disagreements or contrasts on individual issues. But I firmly believe that the will to resist the plans of Domination, stemming from the awareness of the fundamental social alienation that alienates us from ourselves and nature as a whole, and the revolutionary passion for the destruction of the mega-machine of Power unite us in a common vision of a world free from the shackles of civilization. By going through a variety of analyzes, striding kilometer distances and eliminating in practice the language obstacles, since we recognize that there is the community of struggle for total liberation, we can really keep the flame of the revolt lit and the wager of the social revolution open. I therefore send a warm greeting to the Resistenze Al Nanomondo collective and to all the participants in the international meeting against the techno-sciences, expressing in advance my eagerness to fill the gaps in knowledge, that my absence will undoubtedly cause, by studying your reflections, your conclusions and everything you can get me through the actions and collaborations that will come from your fermentations in Italy.

But let’s take things in turn. For 21 months now, I have been pre-trial detained in the Greek prisons because I made the decision, like many fighters around the world, to realize my ideas by taking a battle position in the social war and fighting against power, here and now. So I am in prison because I put my ideas into practice beyond the limits of the law and certainly not by accident. Read the rest of this entry »

Madrid, Spain: Call for a Week of Anarchist Struggle Against Climate Change – Sept 20-27, 2019

September 15th, 2019

Various institutions, environmental groups, trade unions and student groups gathering under the name “Fridays for Future” have announced a so-called “Week for Climate” from the 20th to the 27th of September. Basically this week consists of programmed and alienating demonstrations in which the State and other institutions (UN, G7 etc) are being asked to remedy or take action against the disaster they are causing. In their simplistic and reformist discourse they never criticize the cause of the ongoing devastation: industrial techno capitalism and its technocratic organization of the world. They are the ones who criticize climate change without criticizing those who produce it: they have a corpse in their mouths, those who defend the myth of progress, of sustainable development and of a ‘comfortable’ life in exchange for slavery and the commodification of every aspect of our lives, a life sold to technological domination. They are the ones who have purchased the new fashionable product, climate change, from the supermarket of rebellion. Fridays for Future? Today more than ever the future does not exist, we live in an eternal present and any vestige of the past has been erased. The technological prostheses that surround and colonize us make us live in a continuous state of sleepwalking, where the catastrophe is not about to come as they insist on warning us, the catastrophe is here and now, the catastrophe is the alienating life directed by the algorithms of our ‘virtual assistants’, the catastrophe is a world already devastated by industry.

Italy: “Prometeo” operation – An update about Giuseppe

September 15th, 2019

In recent weeks, as already written, Beppe was transferred from the AS2 [“High Surveillance 2”] section of the Rossano Calabro prison to the Pavia prison. The interview with the lawyer showed that he is in the protected section, where there are collaborators of justice, former law enforcement officers, sex offenders and trans and homosexual prisoners (who have explicitly requested to be among the protected). Beppe had requested to be transferred from the Rossano AS2, where the vast majority of prisoners are Islamic, due to incompatibility and had also requested an approach to his home, thus indicating the AS2 sections of the north-center of Italy where there are currently anarchist comrades. The provocative response to his request was the transfer to the protected section of the Pavia prison. Let’s not leave him alone!

To send letters and telegrams to Giuseppe:

Giuseppe Bruna
C. C. di Pavia
via Vigentina 85
27100 Pavia

Mink farm raided in Blekinge, Sweden

September 15th, 2019

In the early hours of September 3, 2019, all of the prisoners on a small mink farm in Hölkemåla, Blekinge, Sweden, escaped from the cages. In total about 1500 persons managed to get free.

We gave a helping hand by disassembling the fence of the farm and then opening all the cage doors. We removed parts of the fence using a wrench to ensure a way out. The fur farm was situated right next to a lake where we hope that as many as possible now get to live.

In a world where freedom exists only in moments of rebellion and insurrection, we still think that the possibility of a life in the forest and lake is quite the opposite of that in a cage. We do recognize that the already destroyed eco-systems and colonised nature is nothing like a dream, but since it is all that we have it is where we will go from our imprisoned existences. A passion for freedom is what drove us to this hidden killing facility to increase the freedom for all of us. Our desire to share this moment of freedom with the minks is rooted in solidarity and love as well as anger and hatred towards those who dominate us and try to steal our lives.

We strongly believe that there is no limit to the things we can do, all we need is to make up our minds and pick a target.

We send our love to Eric King, Matthias in Switzerland and all other prisoners around the world!

About the talkative Prisoner of Zürich (Switzerland)

September 15th, 2019

We as the former solidarity group are hereby publicly ending our solidarity and support activities for the prisoner, who was arrested in Zurich at the end of January 2019. Up until now the prisoner is still being held in pre-trial detention.

The person wrote a statement on the charges of arson against several military vehicles in Hinwil (Small town near Zürich) and on a police emergency radio antenna in Zurich, a statement which we cannot support. He then presented the statement to the public prosecutor’s office at the final interrogation of the investigation.

First, the person made statements that could be used specifically against the comrade who has been wanted internationally since July 2016 for the same sabotage of a police radio antenna. The prisoner seems to be aware of the possible incriminating use of his statement against the comrade on the run. Read the rest of this entry »

Mexico City: Update on the situation of compa Mario Tripa

2019-09-05

We located the comrade Mario Tripa, on Monday September 2, he had been taken to the Reclusorio Norte [north prison] of Mexico City.

To this day the comrade remains incommunicado and isolated.

He is accused of attacks against the public peace and damage, these crimes are the ones that the State has been using to repress us and lock us up in the country’s capital since 2012.

This imputation is new and different from legal proceedings for which the comrade was in the situation of being on the run. Read the rest of this entry »

Italy: “Prometeo” operation – Text of Robert from the prison of Bancali (Sassari) + Giuseppe was transferred from the prison of Rossano Calabro to that of Pavia (Italy)

September 15th, 2019

Hello everyone!

I am Robert and from 6 July I find myself locked up in the prison of Sassari. I am accused together with two comrades of sending “explosive bags” to two public prosecutors, Sparagna and Rinaudo, and to the director of the DAP [1]. At dawn on May 21st [2019] we were searched and taken to jail. Beppe and I were locked up in Opera, where we spent a month in the “observation” section. This is the area where prisoners are placed who must serve the 15 days of punitive isolation or those considered to be of high risk for self-harm. In our case, we found ourselves in that section, given that Opera does not have an AS2 [“High Surveillance 2”] but “only” AS1, AS3 and the inevitable 41bis. Having been banned from communicating with the other inmates, we spent a month in single cells with the blind permanently closed and an hour of air in the morning in a squalid narrow courtyard. In that section it was also forbidden to use cookers, so we adapted to the prison food, which was almost always inedible. Not that I had ever had any expectations for these places of psychological and physical annihilation. Read the rest of this entry »

Greece: We stand against state repression

September 9th, 2019

The state and capitalism continue to target the freedom of the social base and appropriate its labour and resources. In recent years we have experienced some of the most violent attacks on this freedom through the mass impoverishment of the already oppressed and exploited. At the same time, a widespread social resistance and solidarity movement has formed. People have created a variety of self-organized spaces such as housing infrastructures, social medical centers, community kitchens, open parks and public spaces. In spite of setbacks, the movement has created a solid social ground and accumulated considerable knowledge and experience. Through squats, political groups, base unions, squares and neighbourhood assemblies we have formed communities of struggle with strong social bonds. Communities oriented towards society, with a critical eye all the same. At times, the movement has had to use violence as a means of defending and expanding free spaces against state repression, capitalist interests and fascist attacks. It is a movement that grows in diversity and vibrancy, despite the ongoing criminalisation of solidarity and mobility.
