International Week for Anarchist Prisoners – August 23-30

July 8th, 2018

We are coming back with global week of solidarity with anarchist prisoners. Since last year, a lot has changed in our countries, but the general tendency is going in the worse direction with more repressions applied against anarchists not only in Europe but worldwide. With this in mind, we are calling for sixth annual week of solidarity!

Last year lots of people sent us their reports from different parts of the world and we hope that this year the tradition will grow even bigger. We need to support our comrades! Use this week to spread the information about anarchists behind bars. Don’t have prisoners in your country? No worry, support prisoners from other countries in your region or use those days to raise awareness of repression mechanisms and how anarchist communities can fight against them!

Build up security culture, support your local anarchist prisoners and fight back.

Do not hesitate to continue sending your reports to tillallarefree@riseup.net!

Nobody is free till all are free!

Warzone Distro – Anarchist-nihilist green anarchy zine distro

July 8th, 2018

A zine creating and distributing project focused on anarchy, insurrection and anti-civilization.

Instead it merely presents some common anarchist-nihilist ideas which encourage an anti-political critique of all social control and order, in favor of individual empowerment, anarchy and insurrection.

Frankfurt: Arson Attack Against Deutsche Bahn – 6 Vehicles Destroyed (Germany)

July 6th, 2018

06.07.18: Last night we destroyed 6 Deutsche Bahn (German Railways) vehicles near Frankfurt West railway station. We are opposed to German support for the war of aggression by the Turkish government in Northern Syria as well as the ongoing raids and arrests of left-wing activists.

We set fire to six Deutsche Bahn vehicles used for making repairs. We deliberately carried out our action in a way that ensured there was no danger to anybody. Deutsche Bahn is a leading logistics partner of NATO. Dying and killing in the name of our ‘democracies’ is not an option for us. We will continue to side with the revolutionary forces in Syria and elsewhere.

Here in Germany there are enough reasons too, we do not even know where to start with this police state: the complete erosion of what once referred to itself as a constitutional state. Mass public manhunts. The raids against German technology associations because they have a donation account for a legal US email provider and for using an email address that was used to promote protests against the AFD! (Alternative for Deutschland, right-wing populist party)* Or the banning of Linksunten Indymedia. Or the arrests in the Rhine-Main area for alleged participation in the G20 protests. Or the searches in France, because those affected allegedly raised their arms at the G20. What a complete misunderstanding of every situation in the Schanze.**

Berlin: Solidarity with Nantes! Arson Attack Against a Van Belonging to Prison Service Provider SPIE (Germany)

July 5th, 2018

05.07.18: The wave of exuberant hatred for the arbitrariness of uniformed individuals spills once more across the borders of France to us. For the last two nights in Nantes, hundreds of teenagers have destroyed shops, set fire to cars and attacked the CRS (Compagnies Républicaines de Sécurité / general reserve of the French National Police) with Molotovs.

Aboubakar was executed on Tuesday night in a suburb of Nantes in his car by a police officer after he was placed under arrest during a vehicle inspection…

The police spread their version that they were in danger and it was in self-defense. It is obvious that the ‘legitimacy’ of the murder that they make public is found only in the self-created legitimacy of the police apparatus. Since we refuse to recognize that law, there can never be legitimacy for execution by a cop. Read the rest of this entry »

Eurodac Database: European states will take the fingerprints of immigrants from six years of age

July 5th, 2018

The European Union has founded a commitment to an update of the Eurodac* file, which records the fingerprints of immigrants arriving in Europe. The minimum age of 14 years should be reduced to 6 years “to better seek missing children”.

The members of the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union (EU) have reached an agreement to strengthen Eurodac, the migrants’ database, which includes reducing the age to take the fingerprints of children under 6 years of age. The minimum age was 14 years. The goal is “to help identify and search for missing children, as well as identify family ties.”

The “Eurodac” system was created to facilitate the application of the Dublin Regulation, which determines the Member State responsible for examining an asylum application. Clearly, to launch an asylum application in the European Union, a fingerprint is mandatory. These fingerprints are scanned and transferred to a European database called Eurodac. Once registered with Eurodac, an asylum seeker can no longer apply for asylum in another country. Read the rest of this entry »

Public Statement from the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (CCF) Mexico

July 5th, 2018

Against all power and its multiple “worlds”, for the reconstitution of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (CCF) Mexico.

– A public response to the vomit-inducing anarcho-populist manifesto.

“We must remember our past experiences, not to imitate them but to go much further”

Imprisoned compañerxs of the CCF-Greece

Sometimes it is convenient to allow time to process the facts. It has been 20 days since the anarcho-chairmen of Mexico issued their “manifesto” of support for Peje* (Translation note: nickname of Andrés Manuel López Obrador, President-elect of the Mexican State), inspired by the supposed ‘opportunity’ for the anarcho-communists “to push the Morenista (Translation note: A term used to describe opportunism, betrayal and lack of political ideology) project to the left” and made public its list of the “30 personalities committed to popular sovereignty” elected to form the national coordination of a “Popular Class Front”.

We expected to have read or heard some critiques of this text from various libertarian positions, however time has passed and a complicit silence has accompanied the manifesto.

The signatories of the text writing under the pseudonym “Some Organized Libertarians” shamelessly call to build Popular Power from below and towards the left via the electoral route to later implant the “Libertarian Communism in the noses of the Empire”.

Certainly, there are few “libertarian” groups that have publicly affirmed such a euphoric anarcho-populist discourse and such a cynical defense of neo-platformist principles and their popular-power formula. However, there is not a single “organized anarchism” publication in Mexico that has not alluded to the fatigue of the “People” and their defense, in the same way that they claim to be “from below and to the left” with singular joy. So it is not surprising that this opportunistic discourse has supposed “anarchist” promoters and defenders.

Apparently either this proposal has not had a great impact among the other anarcho-chair groups or they have decided to remain “on the sidelines” until “things set” and thus avoid “steps without sandals”. But we are clear about their pretensions. Read the rest of this entry »

Indonesia: Update on the Anarchist Prisoners in Yogyakarta

July 4th, 2018

“Prison is a milestone in the revolutionaries’ path towards freedom. It’s an intermediary stop, but not the end” Conspiracy of Cells of Fire

As of May 1st, 2018 to today (July 4th, 2018), the anarchist prisoners in Yogyakarta have still not faced court proceedings. Information received is that the anarchist prisoners should have been transferred to Cebongan Prison in Sleman on June 29th, 2018, as the prosecutor’s office has been holding them in Yogyakarta police station (Polda Yogyakarta) since May 1st for the investigation process. However, the planned transfer was cancelled and the period of detention at Polda Yogyakarta has been extended until July 30th, 2018 on the grounds of further investigation. Our prediction *is* the extended investigation process is due to this case being politicized, it’s evident by the many opinions that appear on the surface that the May 1st action was an act of opposition against the government.

As for the condition of the anarchist prisoners of Yogyakarta, one of them, Brian Valentino (UCIL) was taken to hospital due to suffering shortness of breath and stomach problems. Ucil is still recovering now, but he remains in good spirits and is always spreading laughter to other prisoners. As for the other anarchist prisoners, they are all in good health both physically and psychologically, however we know the pressure they are under from various parties, especially the police and the state.

We will continue to provide information on the situation of the anarchist prisoners and the progress of the case. Thank you to all the friends who have shown solidarity for the anarchist prisoners of Yogyakarta.

“Unfortunately the dream we carry in our hearts is too great to avoid the risk of finding ourselves up against the monstrous wall of authority raised in defense of the state and capital”Nicola Gai

New Caledonia: Sabotaging the Mining Industry (Oceania)

July 4th, 2018

On Wednesday, June 27th, 2018, the managers of Société Le Nickel (SLN), a subsidiary of the French company Eramet in New Caledonia, publicly complained about repeated sabotage targeting nickel mining and transportation infrastructure.

The sabotages have all been targeting an 11km conveyor that is used to transport the nickel ore from the deposit to the Kouaoua site (north-east of Grande-Terre) at the seaside, where around 200 people are directly employed. On June 23rd, during the last arson attack against this ‘treadmill’ that is nicknamed The Serpent, a stolen vehicle was placed under the infrastructure and then set on fire.

The financial cost related to these multiple sabotages amounts to 150 million CFP francs (1.25 million euros) for the company.

For the time being, SLN “does not plan to close its Kouaoua center”, from which about 600,000 of the three million tonnes of ore that the company refines at its Noumea plant are extracted each year.

Until now, only one person has been arrested for these serial sabotages, a 31 year old man who was sentenced on June the 19th to 18 months in prison without parole. At the court case he had questioned “pollution” and the “promises” of public facilities that were not kept by SLN.

In New Caledonia, attacks against mining companies do not end in truces. Recently SLN suffered major damage not only to its Kouaoua site, but also at Thio during the transition to the year 2018. Other mining companies, such as Groupe Ballande, lost 5 vehicles and a workshop to the flames in Canala in early January 2018.

Reivindicación de artefacto incendiario en bus del Transantiago (Chile)

July 3rd, 2018

El lunes 4 de junio instalamos en el recorrido I 01 del Transantiago un artefacto incendiario, que logró su activación pero debido a algún fallo interno no generó el daño deseado. Tras la detonación el chofer baja a los pasajeros y conduce el microbus hacia el terminal de la empresa, donde es periciado por la policía.
Creemos en lo contagioso y reproducible de la acción destructiva, con lo que creamos necesario y tengamos al alcance. Desde la calle, saludamos a lxs grupos e individuxs que han decidido romper la normalidad imperante.
Atacamos en solidaridad con el machi Celestino Córdova, nuevamente en huelga de hambre, desafiando las disposiciones del Estado Chileno y el control de Gendarmería.

Nuestro ataque revive los latidos insurrectos del Punki Mauri, a 9 años de su muerte, la anarquía no acaba ni olvida.

¡Mauricio Morales presente!
¡En solidaridad con lxs presxs de la larga condena!

Célula Incendiaria Zoé Aveilla

Claim of incendiary device in Transantiago bus

On Monday, June 4, we installed an incendiary device on Transantiago route I 01. The incendiary achieved its activation but due to some internal failure did not generate the desired damage. After the detonation the driver lowered the passengers out and drove the microbus to the terminal of the company, where it is investigated by the police.
We believe in the contagious and reproducible destructive action, with what we have within reach and for what is needed to create. From the street, we greet the groups and individuals who have decided to break the prevailing normality.
We attacked in solidarity with the machi Celestino Córdova, again on hunger-strike, defying the dispositions of the Chilean State and the control of police.

Our attack revives the insurrectionary beats of Punki Mauri, 9 years after his death, anarchy does not end nor forget.

Mauricio Morales present!
In solidarity with the prisoners with long sentences!

Static / Continues – July 2018

July 3rd, 2018

After a brief pause we resume an irregular publishing rhythm fueled by our hatred of this techno-prison world. Our last few months were busy with shaping our small project for the future. In the coming weeks we’ll be posting a new Dark Nights zine as well as some solidarity posters and other compilations of writings.

Recently we caught this podcast with an anarchist comrade in Yogyakarta talking about the Mayday riot case and the call to ‘Kill the Sultan’. 44 comrades were arrested and comrade Ucil was beaten and held incommunicado for molotov attacking police vehicles. Many comrades either have cases pending or are still wanted for the riot and are investigated. Check out this post and help out.

Imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire released a letter in solidarity with anarchist comrade Grigoris Tsironis, a comrade who spent 9 years as a fugitive and who is persecuted by the Greek judiciary for his anarchist stance. You can find the letter about the house arrest of Tsironis in Greek at Traces of Fire.

In Spanish language you can read about the case of the comrades convicted for the events in Valpraiso, Chile and some reflections on those events in light of the Marfin Bank case in Athens, Greece.

Also, the huge 5th issue of Return Fire is out, this green anarchist zine from UK is packed full of content and available for PDF download.

Translators, saboteurs, image-creators, rioters and writers, contribute via our contact form… New GPG key coming soon…

‘Black and Green Arsonists’ take responsibility for Animal Liberation arsons – Green Nemesis #3 – Athens (Greece)

July 3rd, 2018

Here we reproduce the report of the incendiary attack from ‘Black and Green Arsonists’ – their claim of responsibility for Green Nemesis Act 3. We note that the rhetoric of ‘indiscriminate attack’ can lend itself to the green authoritarianism of the Church of Eco-Extremism, and whilst the attacks don’t possess the attributes of an authoritarian action it is worth being clear. There is a big difference between indiscriminately attacking the enemies and indiscriminately attacking random individuals. The communique has several interesting points about animal/earth liberationist struggle and we are happy to reproduce it. Until all are free.


Anonymous (delayed) report:

On October 28, we made a double hit in the area of ​​Zografou, burning a truck / refrigerator for meat transportation, with an incendiary mechanism. We also attacked a hunter’s car by breaking and burning gasoline in its interior. We also take responsibility for the Green Nemesis Act 3.

We indiscriminately attack what contributes to the incarceration, abuse and misery of animals. Whether this is a cosmetic showcase or a butcher, etc.

ANTHROPOCENTRISM

People from the very old age used the animals for their benefit. With the development of technology and its means, the exploitation of animals grew, while the value of life was undermined. Anthropocentrism is the one that leads millions of animals to death in order to become food, and not only. Workshops full of experimental animals. Also people still use animals for their own fun.
