This year too, we are proposing an informal, convivial and international opportunity for discussion and reflection among individuals and organisations engaged in building an analysis and a critique of what we may call the technoworld. A world which is going through an epoch-making paradigm shift, where all bodies and our very experience have become one of the most important new raw materials. Engineering of the living and digital control are increasingly replacing a large part of the previous market of commodities, which are becoming obsolete. On a planet which has been plundered well beyond its biological limits, the re-designing through synthetic biology and artificial reproduction in a eugenic key of human beings and their management represents the new path forward. This of course for those who will be included in the new power arrangement, for the others no plans have emerged, or perhaps the fact that they have not been presented is already an answer in itself, they will certainly not be satisfied with merely marginalising a part of the world.
For those who ask where the current system, based on systematic exploitation of the planet, can find a way to reorganise itself, incorporating into its discourse the farce of sustainability, the answer lies in taking over human beings themselves: managed, influenced and addressed in their behaviour so that they themselves produce processes which can turn them into commodities. This is the true essence of green and sustainable policies to save the planet from so many catastrophes, of which climate catastrophe is only a part. Human beings who will soon be genetically edited in a process of ongoing perfectibility, where the body will be seen as a limit to be overcome, where what is human will be considered an error, and must therefore continuously adapt to a machine world. A techno-scientific adaptability which will become the only possibility. We can now seem how the cybernetic paradigm, according to which “the environment we live in has always been so radically modified that today we are forced to modify ourselves”, takes a material and dramatic shape.

JOIN US FOR ANOTHER WEEK OF ANTISPECIESIST ACTION, WORKSHOPS AND SKILLSHARING.
20th – 25th May, Hambacher Forst.
(looking for a different language? check the bottom of this page for BASQUE, CATALAN, DUTCH. FRENCH, ITALIAN, SPANISH, SWEDISH, GERMAN)
The third edition of Liberate or Die: From Cage to Freedom will aim to open a space in which we can come together, share skills, and attack speciesism. As before, the gathering will take place in the Hambacher Forst occupation, a focal point of anti-capitalist and climate justice resistance across Europe.
THIS EVENT IS ACTION-FOCUSED.
Aside from just sharing skills, every day of the gathering will be a day of action in which we can put new knowledge into practice. We want to motivate people to initiate actions autonomously, without seeking permission from mainstream/reformist organisations. There will be a range of possible actions depending on your particular interests and risk levels. Some actions may be suggested, but you are invited to come up with plans for yourselves and act spontaneously.
THIS EVENT IS INTERSECTIONAL.
We want to emphasise the interconnections between antispeciesism and all other struggles against oppression. That means bearing in mind different privileges that we hold and maintaining a space which aims to challenge all hierarchies and further total liberation – something that will also be reflected in the workshops offered. This is not a space for those with racist/sexist/homophobic/etc. views who have infiltrated some animal rights groups over recent years.
THIS EVENT IS FREE.
You don’t have to pay to attend! Even if donations are welcome, we believe people shouldn’t have to pay for anything. This event can be hosted for free because we self-organize – everyone attending is part of the crew, and is encouraged to take part in the maintenance of the gathering. If you see a job it’s yours!
THIS EVENT IS SQUATTED.
The gathering will take place in an autonomous land occupation. That means collectively taking care of the forest ecosystem – keep to the paths, pick up your trash, respect the wild. It also means keeping an eye out for intrusion from the state. Participants should be aware of the likelihood of intervention by cops, whether covertly or in uniform. Information will be shared on arrival on legal rights and how to deal with the filth.
Let us know if you have ideas for workshops or other questions.
More info and list of workshops to follow.
Spread the word and stay wild!!

III ENCUENTRO ANARQUISTA CONTRA EL SISTEMA TECNOINDUSTRIAL Y SU MUNDO: 24, 25 y 26 de Mayo – Madrid, Spain
Tuesday, April 30th, 2019
Por tercer año consecutivo tendrá lugar en el CSOA La Gatonera (C/Valentín Llaguno, 32) el Encuentro anarquista contra el sistema tecnoindustrial. Este encuentro surge debido a la necesidad de generar
un discurso contra el sistema de dominación en el que nos hayamos, dicho sistema impregna el mundo que nos rodea bajo una lógica tecnocientífica donde todo es medible, cuantificable y por tanto, está sujeto a un control. Dicho desarrollo se basa en la sustitución de los procesos naturales por procesos técnicos sometiendo así a los individuos, animales y el ecosistema a la mega máquina. Cómo anarquistas consideramos que la lucha debe integrar la necesidad de proteger nuestro medio y recuperar la autonomía que este sistema nos ha arrebatado. (more…)

The program will come soon
Today more than ever, we feel the necessity to organize a meeting involving comrades from different countries already engaged in a critique and in opposition to developments of techno-sciences. An important moment to exchange and share analyses, reflections and experiences, to reinforce criticism and refine one’s thinking even more in confrontation with other groups and individualities that have been pursuing for a long time paths of opposition to the developments of techno-sciences.
In the face of the aridity and degeneration of contemporary thought and the lack of awareness of the pervasive, totalizing and above all irreversible nature of techno-sciences, a lucid analysis of the present is needed on the reality that transforms itself and transforms us. (more…)

THREE DAYS AGAINST THE TECNO-SCIENCES
26-27-28 July 2019
Capo di Ponte (BS) Italy
The program will come soon
An important moment to exchange and share analyses, reflections and experiences, to reinforce criticism and refine one’s thinking even more in confrontation with other groups and individualities that have been pursuing for a long time paths of opposition to the developments of techno-sciences.
In the face of the aridity and degeneration of contemporary thought and the lack of awareness of the pervasive, totalizing and above all irreversible nature of techno-sciences, a lucid analysis of the present is needed on the reality that transforms itself and transforms us. Aware of what is at stake, it emerges that it is essential and urgent to join forces, to weave analyses and paths of struggle into
an international network.

Next year, 2019, the Father Frost against Putin-festival will once again take place in Helsinki. From the 5th to the 6th of January you can join discussions about the state of affairs in Russia and the x-USSR region, and get a chance to meet various social and political activists without the fear of police or special service operations. (fear of infringement from the side of police and special services).
The difficult political and economic situation, compounded by a new wave of repressions and authoritarianism in Russia and the region provide ample topics for discussion. The social protests taking place in a generally difficult geopolitical environment in Europe, the ”Network” frameup against Russian anti-fascists and events related to it, are just a small selection of the topics up for discussion.
In this increasingly turbulent context we want to work out and form a common position in regards to these events, and figure out what to do in relation to the Putin regime, and other islands of authoritarianism in the x-USSR.
The festival program will be distributed openly, and will consist of two parts – presentations and a party. The event is open, and organised in a country where police harassment is unlikely.
Place of the event will be announced later If you are interested in taking part in the festival and you need place to sleep, please fill out the form below and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration is required only for those, who need help with sleeping places. Deadline to send your form – January 4 2019.

Several people were charged with illegal usage of forest resources and distribution of extremist materials after political police with support of task forces attacked an informal anarchist encounter. Around 20 participants were at the camping site at that point.
On Saturday 30 June special task force of police attacked the camp shooting into the air. After a few minutes all the activists were forced on the ground by a crowd of people armed with machine guns and shotguns. They were accompanied by chiefs in plain clothes but wearing masks. When anarchists started asking about the reasons for this circus one of the cops said that they had a report that somebody was illegally cutting trees in the area and shooting in the forest. Other cops were answering, “you are not stupid, you understand yourself why you are here”.
Tents were searched for illegal materials. Merchandise from several groups was confiscated under the pretext of distribution of extremist materials. All activists were put on their knees and filmed by the cops. (more…)

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.
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 :

Remembering this day Sept.21, one of the horrific and tragic moment happened in the history of the Philippines. Martial Law was declared by President Marcos to suppress and repress most of the people. Rampant violence, forced disappearance, arrest, killings and torture experienced by dissidents and common people who are criticizing the authoritarian regime at that time.
Today, Duterte’s administration was also following the path for being a totalitarian and a fascist by putting people’s lives on his own hands defying constitutional and human rights. Declaring Martial Law in Mindanao and instigating War on Drugs policy by killings thousands of poor people. This regime are misleading the people by their fake news by putting their effort on drug related issue to stop criminality and not confronting the real problem of the society, that social injustice like poverty, no job opportunity, no social welfare, forced displacement are the main cause and this injustices are already violence.

INVITACIÓN AL 6TO ENCUENTRO DEL LIBRO Y LA PROPAGANDA ANARQUISTA DE SANTIAGO 2017
A todo quien quiera leer estas palabras:
Pensamos que como individuos que se posicionan desde una postura anárquica y revolucionaria, la nunca suficiente pero siempre irreductible difusión de herramientas para nuestra liberación debe continuar construyendo caminos cada vez más anchos dando a conocer imaginarios y perspectivas de diversos tiempos y lugares. Imaginarios donde podamos contrastar nuestras propias experiencias portando esas ideas y herramientas prácticas al terreno donde se pueda probar su coraje en nuestras vidas individuales y colectivas.
Tanto en este territorio que habitamos como en el resto del mundo corren días cada vez más difíciles para quienes tenemos que vender nuestros cuerpos y mentes a la acumulación de capital. Los índices de contaminación de todo tipo se hacen más difíciles de esconder para las grandes empresas y sus absurdas campañas de ahorro, mientras siguen su curso proyectos mega devastadores como el IIRSA o el MAPA. La precarización de todos los aspectos de nuestras vidas se evidencia a través de síntomas como depresión, frustración, ansiedad, rabia y otros que sentimos cada vez más seguido al vivir para gustos de los poderosos.
