About the anti-fascist struggle after Maidan (Ukraine)

Monday, April 20th, 2015

This is a translation of a brochure written by 2 anti-authoritarian communist groups, Vida (Rivet) and Proletconnect about the anti-fascist struggle in Ukraine after the Maidan events. Events unfold on very high speed and although this brochure discusses the Ukrainian reality until June 2014, to the opinion of the translator it offers insight on the background of the conflict and the international geopolitical significance of these events. It offers a different interpretation compared to western media and even parts of the western left.

In USSR times…

“…Its (Kiev’s) buildings are famous all over Russia. It was a center of religion. And now it is a semi-ruin. Here the Germans showed what they could do. Every public building, every library, every theater, even the permanent circus, destroyed, not with gunfire, not through fighting, but with fire and dynamite. Its university is burned and tumbled, its schools in ruins. This was not fighting, this was the crazy destruction of every cultural facility the city had, and nearly every beautiful building that had been put up during a thousand years. Here German civilization did its work, and one of the few justices in the world is that German prisoners are helping clean up the mess that they made.

New communique from Sosyal İsyan / Social Rebellion (Kurdistan)

Saturday, March 14th, 2015

A message for ecologists and anarchists about the current situation:

To be vegan will not liberate animals, nature and humans. Spaces for socialization will not destroy the system. But organized and armed struggle against capitalism has changed and will change a lot. The problems are social, this is not a question about the individual liberation. Freedom will not occur until all of us are free. Only the armed struggle can stop the murderers of nature.

Those who theorize the cowardice of reconciliation are at the service of capitalism. Those who are undisciplined, devoid of revolutionary ethics, who refuse the armed struggle are the agents of fascism in our eyes.

The only way to defeat fascism is the armed struggle. Capitalism can only be destroyed through armed struggle and the armed struggle can only be fought and won by an organization which possesses theoretical unity and strong will.

Our prisoners cannot be liberated by graffiti, rallies or actions without severity, but only by organizing operations of liberation into the jails – and that is only possible via armed struggle.

Our call is to organize for armed struggle.

Get organized! Get armed! Revolt!

“About the new government of national salvation” communique by Anarchist Group 'Chaos Symphony' (Greece)

Saturday, February 28th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

In the ongoing reality, the global economic crisis, having eroded the political and economic stability of states, reshapes the political map, where new correletions are created, in an effort to find the policies to address and manage the crisis and to restore stability. In Greece, the change of the political correlations were reflected with the election of SY.RIZ.A. in the government office. This political fluidity and mobility fits into the general European level, where countries most affected by the crisis, such as the European south, are in the process of changing governments. In response to the general frustration of the masses, as they have lost their privileges because of the harsh neo-liberal policies, social-democrats promise to restore these privileges through an interventionist policy in support of the people. This obviously is not possible within the European context, especially when the financial liquidity of the economy of a state depends on funding programs whose terms and conditions are determined by third capitalist institutions. In this case, there are no more than two options: The continuation of the previous policy, with some ostensible relief measures in order for the government to maintain its profile as long as it can or a potential bankruptcy.

Sobre el peligro de transformar la anarquía en un conjunto de prácticas “alternativas” sin contenido de ofensiva contra el poder (Contra toda autoridad)

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

(Septiembre 2014 #1)

Sin duda que uno de los grandes peligros que acecha a la anarquía en todo tiempo es la posibilidad de transformarse en un conjunto de prácticas vacías de todo contenido de ofensiva contra el poder.

Esta situación es fomentada, por un lado, por el mismo enemigo a través de sus valores aglutinantes en torno al dominio democrático como la “diversidad”, la “tolerancia”, el “pluralismo” y también la integración económica por medio de la mercantilización de la rebeldía y el consumo “alternativo”.

Por otro lado, existe también toda una gama de individuxs y grupos “contestatarios” e incluso algunxs “anarquistas” que de manera inconciente o deliberada se desmarcan del antagonismo y la conflictividad permanente hacia el dominio, ya sea silenciando la necesidad de la destrucción y del ataque directo contra la autoridad o, en el peor de los casos, realizando burdas campañas de limpieza de imagen del anarquismo, presentándose a sí mismos como patéticos defensores de una ideología ajena a la confrontación con el poder.

Anarchism in the context of civil war (Ukraine)

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

On Friday, the 2nd of May, the House of Trade Unions in Odessa caught on fire. Altogether at least 42 people lost their lives during the clashes in the city, most of them in the fire and the others in streetfights. There is an excellent Russian language, eyewitness account of the events available here.

Events began to unfold when armed pro-Russian AntiMaidan fighters attacked a demonstration organised by football hooligans with nationalist sympathies. This attack resulted in lethalities, but soon the pro-Russians were overpowered. They escaped back to their protest camp in the Kulikovo field, but pro-Kiev demonstrators followed and lit the protest camp on fire. The pro-Russians then escaped to the House of the Trade Unions, which soon caught on fire. The fire spreading, is visible in this video. At the 2 minute mark, you can see a flame behind a closed window, making it plausible that some of the fires were started from the inside. For example, due to accidents with Molotov cocktails which were used by both sides during the fight. However, you can also see pro-Ukrainian nationalists throwing Molotov cocktails, making them at least partially responsible for the fire. (more…)

'Call for papers' for Interference gathering on society and technology August 15-17 2014 (Netherlands)

Friday, April 25th, 2014

Interference, n:

1. preventing (a process or activity) from continuing or being carried out properly.

2. the combination of two or more electromagnetic waveforms to form a resultant wave in which the displacement is either reinforced or cancelled.

Interference is a gathering of people, perspectives, theories, and actions that share a critical approach to society and technology. It will take place at the Binnenpret in Amsterdam, NL from 15th to the 17th of August 2014. It will be a space where we can meet, debate, share, learn, and find our affinities and oppositions. The event comes as a response to the lack of a common ground for confrontation and discussion over themes like hacking, technology, art and politics that could break out of the existing containers and roles for such concepts and practices.

Interference is not a hacker conference. From a threat to the so-called national security, hacking has become an instrument for reinforcing the status quo. Fed up with yet another recuperation, the aim is to re/contextualize hacking as a conflictual praxis and release it from its technofetishist boundaries. Bypassing the cultural filters, Interference wants to take the technical expertise of the hacking scene out of its isolation to place it within the broader perspective of the societal structures it shapes and is part of.

War, Catastrophe, Democracy, Prison – We Want Revolution

Sunday, 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.

Text from the 3 imprisoned members of Revolutionary Struggle (Greece)

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

LETS MAKE THE BEGINNING IN GREECE OF A WORLDWIDE SOCIAL REVOLUTION

“If someone today wants to open a profitable business, they should make guillotines”.

With the above phrase an American journalist describes the size of social rage in the USA. It is the first time historically, where the total of the developed capitalist world boils in rage and desperation for the rulers, for those that are to blame for this crisis, which not only are not punished but continue enjoying their privileges and increasing their profits. It stems from the rage at the poverty that expands, for the marginalization of wider and wider parts of society, for the injustice, since the rulers require that the people are sacrificed in order to face the crisis.
