Urgent update about the conditions of Eric G. King, imprisoned anarchist comrade (USA)

Thursday, January 30th, 2020

International solidarity in the fight with Eric G. King, imprisoned anarchist comrade in the United States prison system. Eric is imprisoned for the courageous act of putting a molotov to a government building. The comrade took responsibility for his actions and declared himself anarchist until the end, and the State now takes revenge on him and his loved ones. Fire to the State – Free Eric G. King!
News via Eric’s soli-blog:

This is going to be very long a lot more personal than we usually post. For the first time Eric’s partner feels like they need to speak out and share what has been happening to their family.

“There has been radio silence on our end for a bit, and for that I apologize. So much has been happening with Eric, but we have felt incredibly anxious and afraid to publicize. It’s been so terrible that even right now… I feel extremely overwhelmed and panicked to write this all out. We have sat on a draft of this for a month now. But its pretty real that FCI Englewood has terrorized our family since Eric’s arrival in late August, starting from the VERY FIRST ENCOUNTER WITH THE PRISON. And it is finally time to talk about it.

After Eric arrived at FCI Englewood I attempted to visit the next day. Policy is a spouse can visit in the first week prior to visiting approval. However when he was placed in Englewood in 2016 we ran into major issues attempting that first visit so I did expect to encounter some bullshit… we were not disappointed. After an hour of talking to guards, lieutenants and pushing hard for the visit, I was finally brought back to the visiting room. Because of all of the time it took… we only had 20 minutes to visit. During those 20 minutes, they came to us no less than 4 times claiming there was a kid in my car. They attempted to make me leave the visit to show them there was no child. I refused and told them to go in my locker, get my car keys, and go *in* my car to see there was no child. Desperate for every second that was being wasted. After shutting the situation down we were finally allowed 5 uninterrupted minutes, but it was difficult to relax and connect. (more…)

International call to action by Militant Campaign ‘Fight4Rojava’ (Kurdistan, Syria, Turkey)

Friday, October 11th, 2019

In the afternoon of 9 October the fascist Turkish occupation army and its Islamist murder gangs started their war of aggression against the liberated areas of Rojava. With massive artillery fire and widespread air raids on towns and villages along the Syrian-Turkish border, the front was opened and ground invasion began.

The fascist AKP-MHP regime is turning its threats into reality and under the cynical name ‘Operation Sources of Peace’ has launched a new campaign of extermination against the people of the region. From the North, jihadist gangs try to advance to the cities and settlements along the border and the villages in the vicinity have become the scene of fierce battles between the self-defence forces of the population and the invading troops. While the fascist invaders attack the civilian population of Rojava under the protection of their heavy weapons, artillery and the bombardment of their war planes, sleeper cells of the Islamic state carry out coordinated attacks in the interior and spread fear and terror.

Letter from imprisoned anarchist comrade Keith ‘Malik’ Washington (USA)

Monday, September 2nd, 2019

Comrade Malik Speaks! This Also Means That I Am an AntiFascist! Expect Us!

Revolutionary Greetings Comrades!

By now the word has gotten out that I’ve left the New Afrikan Black Panther Party-prison chapter and embraced Anarchism. This is a tough time but as J. Cole raps in his song “Middle Child,” he says: “Everything Grows, its destined to change!” I have changed!

I am still holding on to my belief in Eco-Socialism. Plain and simple, climate change is real and not a hoax. Think many of ya’ll who have felt these unusually hot temps recently can attest that something is most certainly going on and I can guarantee you that these imperialist multi-national corporations that deal in fossil fuels have no interest in saving our beautiful planet or ensuring that the humyn species is able to survive– they just don’t care so we have to make them care! But that is not why I am communicating with you today! (more…)

Monday, July 15th, 2019

Here is the final message the anarchist fighter Will Van Spronsen left for his comrades before carrying out an armed attack against the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, Washington on July 13th, 2019.

there’s wrong and there’s right.
it’s time to take action against the forces of evil.

evil says one life is worth less than another.
evil says the flow of commerce is our purpose here.
evil says concentration camps for folks deemed lesser are necessary.
the handmaid of evil says the concentration camps should be more humane.
beware the centrist.

USA: Attack on the Metropolitan Republican Club – NYC

Sunday, October 14th, 2018

12/10/18, New York City: Anarchist cell smashes windows of ruling political party club building and sprayed slogans to co-incide with an event organised by them with the fascist Gavin McInness, co-founder of Vice Media and founder of Proud-Boys (American far-right group). Locks were also glued and digital keypad destroyed. No-one was arrested.

Tonight, we put the Republican Party on notice, in defiance to the policy of mass misery they have championed. The US government has established concentration camps around the country for Latino people, shamelessly murders black people, and continues its war machine that has slaughtered Muslim people with impunity for decades. The so-called “Land of the Free” leads the world in incarceration rates per capita, all the while profiteering in the new plantation within the prison walls.

While these atrocities persist unabated, the Metropolitan Republican Club chose to invite a hipster-fascist clown to dance for them, content to revel in their treachery against humanity. The Republican Party, joined by their spineless partners-in-crime, The Democrats, institute a policy of domestic and foreign terror felt the world over. Our attack is merely a beginning. We are not passive, we are not civil, and we will not apologize. Those of good conscience and clear mind know this state of oppression cannot remain. The US fascist political system is one of the most savage institutions in history and we will combat it relentlessly until all are free of American barbarism.

London: Demo against the far right – Oct 13 (UK)

Saturday, September 15th, 2018

A coalition of groups including London Antifascists have made a call-out for a unity demonstration against the far right Democratic Football Lads Alliance (DFLA). The far right have proved themselves to be a resurgent threat this year, mobilising a 20,000 strong rally in central London in June and have attacked trade unionists, people of colour and left wing bookshops. Left unchecked they are sure to repeat these outrageous attacks.

Antifascists have started to come together to counter this new threat. In July a militant bloc of around 500 antifascists came together to oppose a #FreeTommy demonstration. Look out for ways you can get involved in building a mass antifascist movement in the coming weeks.

If you are in London please save the date and join the demonstration. If you are outside of London consider organising transport for your friends and comrades. Meet up point TBA.

International Week of Anti-Fascist Agitation and Propaganda (1-8 Sept)

Wednesday, August 29th, 2018

international_week
ES – SEMANA INTERNACIONAL DE AGITACIÓN Y PROPAGANDA ANTIFASCISTA

INTERNATIONAL WEEK OF ANTI-FASCIST AGITATION AND PROPAGANDA

Call for a week of anti-fascist agitation and propaganda, due to the growth and visibility that far-right groups have achieved in recent times which has reached into spaces in the mainstream media, in neighborhoods and in bourgeois politics.

Because of the above it is necessary that we make ourselves present everywhere, mainly in the streets, making it clear that the intention is not only to act in an effective manner to fascist provocations, but to act in an offensive manner, permanently promote an anti-authoritarian attitude, to make visible, question and stress the daily reproductions of fascist attitudes such as racism, xenophobia, sexism and homo/transphobia.

We are present with Heather Heyer, Rodrigo Lanza and those who confront fascism in any of its forms.

Known fascist has car vandalised in Bristol (UK)

Sunday, August 12th, 2018

The guitarist for ‘Queensbury Rules’ (a ‘Blood & Honor’ band) had his car sabotaged in the early hours of the 7th of August.

Wojciech (Woj) Wasilewski, a known fascist had all 4 tyres of his car punctured, the bodywork scratched and a message sprayed which reads: “Woj = Fascist” and on the otherside: “[heart symbol] ANNA YPG”.

The car was parked on Trinity St (New Town) St Philips, sometimes parked on Hassell Drive, both near Trinity Police Station, Bristol. The car is a red Hyundai, reg: EA60TWX

Woj and his Polish friends live above ‘Skin Deep’, a tattooist shop on Old Market (close to where the car was parked). The shop is run by ‘Ozzie’, an old National Fronter from Kingswood, Bristol.

Woj has been seen in a ‘Queensbury Rules’ T-shirt with “Pie and Mash” printed on the back (cockney slang for ‘fash’). It also had the slogan: “Five little words” which means “We go where we want”. But the reality is they don’t, their gigs are very secretive and so we decided to go below the belt and kick him in the bollocks.

There is graffiti near Woj’s flat, which is separate from this attack, that also mentions Anna Cambell: “When you fight fascism, the rules of engagement should be of your own making”

Take ’em on the blind side cell.

‘What It Looks Like To Be Anti-Fascist In Prison’ by Eric King, anarchist prisoner (USA)

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

via itsgoingdown:

Below is a statement written by anarchist prisoner Eric King in October. For more info on how to support Eric, go here.

What does it look like to be antifascist in federal prison in 2017? It may not be what you think.

If you picture coming into the feds with your fist swinging, taking on every racist, swastika wearing trash you see, that is not a reality. That line of thinking will get us nowhere. Racism at the federal level is very real and played out in a very archaic way. At CCA Leavenworth I pictured going into ANY spot guns blazing, taking on bigots in a very macho, aggressive, violent way. At CCA that was actually somewhat doable, even at Englewood-FCI (low security) it was somewhat a reality because you could dog them out and clown them for their ridiculousness… the reality is though, that the higher up in custody you go and the further west coast you end up, the more serious the game gets and the less likely you are to be able to express your own antifascist ideas without facing some serious backlash.

11 Neo-Nazis arrested in two co-ordinated counter-terror raids (UK)

Friday, September 29th, 2017

11 men have been arrested by counter-terror police in the UK following an investigation into the proscribed Neo-Nazi group National Action. National Action was banned as a terrorist organisation in December 2016 by the UK’s home secretary after the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox. “Death to traitors, freedom for Britain” became a slogan for the group after being said in court by Cox’s killer, Thomas Mair, an anti-Semitic, far-right extremist and white power activist who was glorified in their online propaganda calling for more murders. The group has been tied to several foiled plots and far-right violence. National Action models itself on European far-right Neo-Nazi hooligan street groups and autonomous nationalist organisations, copying tactics, rhetoric and aesthetics from these extreme-right groups which learnt initially from studying the success of their enemies, autonomous anti-capitalist organisations and anarchists.

After proscription, National Action was evading authorities by taking on new names – including ‘Scottish Dawn’ and ‘NS131’, and trying to go towards newer underground tactics. It seems the raids aimed to prevent this, the operation was investigation-led and based on police work into the group post-ban and followed on from recent arrests of members of the group in the military. Anti-fascist research estimates are that up to 60 members are still currently active, down from a peak of 150 when their Neo-Nazi conference was held in Southport.

Several of the alleged National Action supporters were arrested in and around Warrington, Cheshire, in the North-West, where the group was continuing to operate a hang-out in a small brick warehouse for Mixed Martial Arts training and recruitment. (more…)

Solidarity with comrade Patryk Cichon (Poland, UK)

Tuesday, September 26th, 2017

At the beginning of May 2016 our comrade Patryk Cichoń from Poland was arrested by British police under an European Arrest Warrant. Patryk is a well known anti-fascist militant notorious among neo-Nazi-boneheads in his city for his uncompromising stance against them in the past. The boneheads managed to convince a few of their friends to testify against Patryk and his friend for an alleged assault and robbery. As later transpired, his friend had a very good alibi and had the charges against him dropped (despite being allegedly recognised by the “victim” and his friends), so Patryk ended up being sentenced on his own. The whole trial was an absolute travesty and Patryk, as a poor, young working class person, was not able to afford a proper defence. He spent two months on remand in 2004 and was sentenced to three years in prison.

It is clear that this whole case was politically motivated and had only one purpose, which was to get rid of the core of the anti-fascist resistance in Patryk’s home town. (more…)

London Antifa statement on the Islamic-fascist attack at Parliament (UK)

Saturday, March 25th, 2017

On March 22 there was an attack outside Parliament that has killed four and injured many. No sooner had this happened when Tommy Robinson, former leader of the EDL appeared at the scene of the attack to rave about a clash of civilisations and a war with all Muslims. This was swiftly followed up with an announcement of a march planned by Britain First in London.

The truth of the matter is this. These so called patriots are delighted that this has happened. This one fanatic has given them the opportunity they desired to try and start a conflict in society drawn down racial lines. They would seek to rebuild their failing movements off the blood and tears shed by ordinary people, they would use this attack to justify their own brand of jackbooted terror against the Muslim population of this country.

But we will not let them.

Our group and the national network know the reactionary ideology at the heart of the attack in the capital. Today the howls from the right are directed at us, to claim that we caused this attack through our tolerance of ‘Islamic extremism’ or our work to support the rights of refugees. These claims are built on the assumption that there is a clash of civilisations in this country. That ‘English culture’ and ‘Muslim culture’ cannot co-exist and a war is inevitable. (more…)
