Note from the Chilean blog Publicacion Refractario: Despite the continuous contradictory information that has come to us from different factions regarding the detained comrades on the other side of the mountain range, which is related to the fact that their situation is not being publicized- their names, the charges, everything that happened has been silenced. We prefer to publish the communique from the ‘Union of Lawyers and Attorneys’ who are quite clear about the recent events that have taken place in the Argentine territory… Against silence and indifference: To spread the insurrectionist anti-prison solidarity.
All the detained anarchists defended by our union have been processed and placed in preventive detention.
In total there are 12 anarchist political prisoners.
One is accused of throwing an explosive device at Judge Bonadio’s car. His name is Marco Viola.
Two others are accused of having attacked the tomb of the criminal chief of the Federal Police Colonel Ramón Falcón. Their names are Anahi Salcedo and Hugo Rodriguez.
There was a raid on a social center in the Barrio of Constitución, in CABA (Autonomous City of Buenos Aires) and all they detained everybody who was meeting in this place, some with more permanence, others circumstantially.
ALL OF THEM have been accused of EVERYTHING.
They are all under investigation for being part of an organized structure established and created to commit offences among which are those that we have already mentioned.
Bail was refused for all of the detainees.
Now Judge Ercolini has indicted all of the accused.
The prosecution ruling for PREVENTIVE DETENTION was passed.
They have ordered that ALL the anarchist detainees remain imprisoned for their trial.
The Union will appeal the resolution.

Argentina: Without Fear & With Perseverance Let’s Extend the Offensive! Information About the Recent Repressive Blow of the Argentine State
Wednesday, November 21st, 2018
On November 14th, two specific events took place in the city of Buenos Aires, with media coverage and a rapid police / judicial response.
During the afternoon, in the Recoleta cemetry, at the mausoleum dedicated to Colonel Ramon Falcon (assassinated by comrade Simón Radowitzky) – a bomb explodes leaving the comrade Anahi Salcedo wounded, she is transferred to Fernandez hospital and detained with wounds to her face and skull as well as the loss of three fingers on one of her hands. She is currently in an induced coma. At the same place, comrade Hugo Rodriguez was arrested.
Hours later, outside the home of Judge Bonadio (famous for his hard line, his indelible past with the youth of the iron guard- a Peronist fascist group, and his current practice and discourse against anti-conservatism and repression of dissenting sectors and individuals opposed to the current order), comrade Marco Viola is arrested, accused of throwing an explosive device at the magistrate’s car.
At dawn, and throughout the following days, various spaces of the anarchic environment including squats, neighborhood centers and private homes are searched, resulting in the arrests of another 12 people.
The detainees were transferred to 2200 Cavia street where the anti-terrorist unit works, then to the police superintendence on Madariaga street, and then finally on Saturday morning they were taken to the Comodoro Py courts to testify in front of judge Ercollini and the public prosecutor Di Lello, following 72 hours of uncertainty, isolation and being subjected to who knows what by the eternally miserable wretches.
After this, two people are released, leaving a total of 10 imprisoned comrades charged with illegal association, public intimidation and possession of explosive material. The two actions unified under the same cause.
At the moment it is all prudential what can be transmitted, we know that other places are under surveillance, as well as specific people, since the government itself have confirmed the seizure of more than 100 private phones belonging to activists, and they have reopened investigations into direct actions that were carried out in the city from 2005 until the present (some claimed by anarchists and others not).
The call is clear and leaves no room for double interpretations.
Every gesture of concrete solidarity is welcome and desirable.
Do not leave the comrades kidnapped by the Argentine State alone, without fear and with perseverance extend the offensive.
ANARCHIST NIHILIST ANTI-AUTHORITARIAN COMRADES WE ARE HERE AND WE ARE STRONG
WITHOUT FEAR AND WITH MORE ANGER THAN EVER
FREEDOM FOR THE ANARCHIST PRISONERS
Saturday, November 17th, 2018
Wednesday, November 14th, in Buenos Aires, almost simultaneously, two locations were attacked with bombs. The first attack, at the Recoleta cemetery, failed unfortunately. The bomb exploded in the hands of one of the two people carrying out the action. It was aimed at the tomb of Ramón Falcón, a police chief who was
responsible for the murder of 11 protesters on May 1st, 1909, and who was assassinated several months later by the anarchist Simón Radowitzky. The comrade who led the attack is in a serious condition in hospital and the comrade who accompanied her was arrested.
A few hours later, a bomb was thrown at the house of Federal Judge Claudio Bonadi. The comrade who led the attack was quickly arrested as well.
On the night of Wednesday to Thursday, 10 people were arrested in a Buenos Aires squat.
As a reminder, the G20 in Buenos Aires begins in 2 weeks.

In the night between the 17th and 18th of October we vandalized the entrance of the Argentinian embassy in Copenhagen with paint. We also wrote the name Santiago Maldonado and a circled A.
We did this because the Argentinian state is responsible for the disappearance of the anarchist Santiago Maldonado that happened more than two months ago. A few days after our action we heard the sad news that his dead body had been found. The state and the police are responsible! We are angry!
Tuesday, October 24th, 2017
The murder of Santiago Maldonado has triggered a series of actions in Argentina. Santiago disappeared on August 1st, kidnapped by the gendarmerie, and on October 20th, it was confirmed that a dead body found in the Chubut river belonged to our compañero Santiago Maldonado. We hope that the guilty will suffer the worst possible vengeance.
Death to the murderous state, Santiago presente!
Today like last night we continue in the streets – SANTIAGO PRESENTE!
NOW YOU ARE PART OF THE EARTH THAT YOU LOVED SO MUCH
Sad are the hours that we are living. On October 20th, Sergio Maldonado (brother of Santiago) confirmed what we were all so afraid of. The body planted by the gendarmerie in the Chubut river is the compañero Santiago Maldonado.
The gendarmerie are responsible. The State is responsible. Because it was them who took him from the rebel territory of Cushamen on the first of August. (more…)
For Anarchist Comrade Santiago Maldonado, Let’s Make the Police and the State Disappear! (Chile, Argentina)
Saturday, September 30th, 2017
This September 1st marked one month since the disappearance of the anarchist comrade Santiago Maldonado at the hands of the police of the National Gendarmerie of Argentina. This took place within the context of the repression against a demonstration that included road blocks made by the Mapuche community Pu Lof in Resistance at Cashamen, in the Argentine province of Chubut.
While the anarchic agitation spread beyond borders, comrades in Argentina took to the streets to spread acts of revolt via propaganda and direct action. With arson attacks against the police, barricades and Molotov cocktails against government buildings, our comrades unleashed their rage at a situation that is as sad as it is real: the bastards have arrested and disappeared an anarchist comrade.
Because Santiago is an anarchist, and not just a young musician and artist, something the press and leftists conveniently leave out, in denouncing the state repression we make it clear that denial and silencing of the comrade’s political identity is another form of disappearance, erasing from the narrative the true motivations of his solidarity presence in the Mapuche community where he was at the time of his arrest. 
We have no advice for our comrades in Argentina, we believe in them and their conviction and autonomy to continue transforming their pain into rage, spreading chaos against the world of authority, and deepening and expanding affinities in concrete experiences of confrontation and agitation. (more…)

We can still be worse – Reflections and considerations on the month following the disappearance of Santiago Maldonado (Argentina)

WE CAN STILL BE WORSE
Reflections and considerations on the month following the disappearance of Santiago Maldonado
On August 1st, members of the Pu Lof Mapuche community in resistance in the province Cushamen barricaded National Route 40, along with allies in solidarity. They cut off traffic in solidarity against the legal proceedings confronting el Lonko Facundo Jones Huala (for the second time). Minutes later, cars and trucks arrived carrying about thirty border police armed with rifles. The peñis (Mapuches) began throwing rocks, responding to the presence of the bastard forces of order. The Gendarmerie advances to the shots, burning the precarious houses and belongings of the Lof, forcing the occupiers to retreat across a river. Santiago Maldonado (“Lechuga” or “el Brujo“) fell behind the rest. Some of the inhabitants of the Lof saw that the Gendarmerie grabbed Santiago; others testified as to hearing the police say they “got one.”
Afterwards, images and testimony began to circulate about how Santiago was missing, and that it seemed the Gendarmerie had taken him away in a “unimog” all-terrain military vehicle. The authorities were silent through this whole process.
On Friday, August 4, various anarchists and individuals in solidarity entered the seat of government in Chubut province, demanding Santiago’s return. The place was ripe for destruction. Computers, notebooks, windows, and decorations were all viciously destroyed, and fliers and graffiti were left behind referring to the repression in Cushamen. (more…)

POR EL COMPAÑERO ANARQUISTA SANTIAGO MALDONADO
¡HAGAMOS DESAPARECER A LA POLICÍA Y AL ESTADO!
Este 01 septiembre se cumplió ya un mes desde la detención y desaparición del compañero anarquista Maldonado, a manos de la policía de la Gendarmería Nacional de Argentina en el contexto de la represión de una manifestación que incluyó cortes de ruta realizada por la comunidad mapuche Pu Lof en Resistencia de Cushamen,en la provincia argentina del Chubut.
Mientras la agitación anárquica se extiende más allá de las fronteras, compañerxs en Argentina se vuelcan a las calles a propagar actos de revuelta a través de la propaganda y la acción directa. Con ataques incendiarios a la policía, barricadas y cócteles molotov contra edificios estatales, nuestrxs hermanxs desatan la rabia ante una situación tan triste como real: los bastardos han detenido y hecho desaparecer a un compañero anarquista.
Porque Santiago es un anárquico, y no solo un joven músico y artesano como lo muestra convenientemente la prensa y los izquierdistas que denuncian la represión estatal, dejamos claro que la negación y el silencio sobre la identidad política del compañero es otra forma de hacerlo desaparecer, borrando del relato de los hechos las verdaderas motivaciones de su presencia solidaria en la comunidad mapuche en resistencia donde se encontraba al momento de su detención.

Llamado internacional a manifestarnos por la aparición del compañero Santiago Maldonado. Desaparecido por el estado Argentino durante la represión a la comunidad mapuche el 1º de agosto en la lof en resistencia de cushamen (Chubut-Arg.). Este hecho nos demuestra una vez mas lo siniestro del estado y sus verdugos.
El primero de septiembre se cumple UN MES de la desaparición del “Lechu” “el Brujo”. Un mes en el que el Estado y los medios de comunicación en mas de una oportunidad justificaron la desaparición y en otras tergiversaron la información, llegando a culpar a la comunidad mapuche y a su familia.
QUE LA RABIA Y LA ACCIONES DESBORDEN!
LA SOLIDARIDAD NO DESAPARECE!

On Monday, March 7 between 2 and 4 am, on the eve of the trial that intends to bury alive (the prosecution demands 44 years) anarchist comrades Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar, who were remanded more than two years ago, we put out of action several bank ATMs of Santander (Spanish origin) with a hammer, paint and left noise bombs in these branches:
Calle 13-32 La Plata
Moreno 2300 Capital
We left flyers vindicating our comrades.
With this gesture of solidarity we are with those who face the powerful and their world.
Freedom to Monica and Francisco!
Love and encouragement… long live sabotage!

Con este gesto nos solidarizamos con aquellos que enfrentan al poder y su mundo.
Libertad a Monica y Francisco!
Cariño y aliento… Viva el sabotaje.
Algunas palabras sobre posicionamientos y demas… de parte uno del blog ‘Por la Anarquia’ (Chile, Argentina, Mexico)
Thursday, March 3rd, 2016
En rigor de la verdad, en principio este texto iba a ser una respuesta al “debate amoral” planteado hace ya algún tiempo. Y ciertamente la idea nos desagradaba. Pues siempre hemos preferido vías de comunicación mas intimas, sabiendo por supuesto que no están exentas a la execrable mirada del enemigo, pero para nada nos seducía la idea de convertirnos en la nueva novela cibernética, y viendo que la cosa se iba desarrollando en ese sentido, preferimos guardar silencio, sin permitir que nadie nos imponga sus tiempos ni sus ritmos. Así, durante los últimos meses, fuimos compartiendo (tanto yo como otros compas) y debatiendo con compañeros, de blogs, de revistas, con alguno de los mismos grupúsculos eco extremistas o con alguno de sus medios de difusión, o con compañeros sin ningún proyecto publico que demostrar, tanto de esta como de otra región, tanto via mail como en persona.
Hoy, quisiera compartir algo que se acerca mas a un posicionamiento que como individuo tengo a la hora no solo de administrar este blog, si no en lo cotidiano. (more…)

El día 9/2 a las 3:15 am, dejamos una botella que hizo implosión, logrando que vuelen unos panfletos que se encontraban anexados a la botella. El lugar que elegimos fue una escuela de polícia de la zona sur del conurbano bonarense, fábrica de bastardos uniformados, pilar fundamental de este sistema de opresión.
Odiamos la autoridad y despreciamos este mundo de reproducción de miseria constante. La opresión continua que sentimos entre la rutina del laburo y el control social, es algo que no podemos tolerar si anhelamos recuperar nuestras vidas y enlazarlas con la intensidad de momentos de libertad. Es por eso mismo que decidimos dar un golpe a la seguridad y a la tranquilidad de una noche llena de vigilantes y golpear en su casa. (more…)

Sobre la situación represiva en la región controlada por el estado Argentino.
El Estado policial, de vigilancia, castigo, sometimiento y muerte no se detendrá sea que vivamos en dictadura o democracia. Prueba de ello son los más de 4.600 casos de personas torturadas, desaparecidas y asesinadas desde el año 1983 (fin de la dictadura en esta región) a manos de carceleros, policías y diversas fuerzas armadas.
Hoy, mientras continua el circo electoral para ver que amo dominara a los esclavos voluntarios los próximos años, los candidatos presidenciales Daniel Scioli y Mauricio Macri amenazan con más mano dura y encarcelamiento para los marginales, los que se rebelen o los que ataquen la propiedad de los ricos, con continuar inundando de cámaras de vigilancia cada esquina y perfeccionando los sistemas de identificación biométrica, usando el presupuesto acumulado tras años de saqueo para la inversión en tecnología militar de ultima generación, amenazan los miserables con sacar a la calle al mismísimo ejercito, prometen tolerancia cero… prometen y cumplen.

'To Comrade Nikos Romanos and all the young fighters who are imprisoned in the jails of Troika and Syriza' : Commission of Convicted Workers, Relatives and Friends of Las Heras (Argentina)
Thursday, November 12th, 2015
325 receives and transmits:
To Comrade Nikos Romanos and all the young fighters who are imprisoned in the
jails of Troika and Syriza,
We attach the appeal to the international day of struggle for December 12th
that we want to propel with you.
From the south of Argentina we want to send you a warm hug. You are not
alone, we are together!
Here the oil and mine imperialist companies plunder our natural sources
with impunity and get huge profits with our muscles and bones, with daily
shifts of 12 and 14 hs per day. Every time we fight for our rights they
chase us, repress us, imprison us and convict us with the government and
Thus on December 12, 2013, the Videlist justice convicted us for fighting
in 2006 against outsourcing and against a tax on our wages that bosses and
government cinically call it “tax on profits”. It is a robbery to our low
wages, even more in the south where the cost of living is two times higher
than the rest of the country.
For this fight, four of us are convicted for life and there are six
comrades who received a sentence of 5 years. (more…)
Letter from Argentina for the Global Day of Political Prisoners by the Collective for the Re-foundation of the IVth International – FLTI
Monday, October 26th, 2015
325 receives and transmits – We add the clarification after a contact with our comrades, Sin Banderas-Ni Fronteras, in Chile, that this letter is published mainly for reference, not as an approval. Our nihilist-anarchist and anti-civilisation perspective obviously has a critique of the authoritarianism of Marx-Lenin-Trotsky. Solidarity to the imprisoned comrades, for a new internationalist struggle:
October 2, 2015
Firstly, we wanted to send you a big hug, a hearty encouragement and our entire sympathy and support in the fight for your freedom in the dungeons of the Greek regime, especially to comrade Evi Statiri, who is now recovering from her hunger strike.
We are the Collective for the Re-foundation of the IVth International – FLTI. We are an international current with militancy in Syria near Aleppo, resistance against the genocidal Assad; we are also working alongside the rebel militias in Libya who yesterday defeated Khadafi; we are fighting in Zimbabwe and South Africa in Black Africa; and also in several Latin American countries.
We are writing to you because we have been carefully following your struggle and denouncing and fighting together with you against the brutal imprisonment that dozens of comrades are suffering, who today are still in prison at the hands of the Syriza’s Government, those “merchants of hope” -as comrade Nikos Romanos denounced them – that are actually jailers and oppressors.
We want you to know that this claim and this fight that you are carrying forward, is also ours. We know that you are imprisoned for fighting; for defending migrant workers attacked by the fascist gangs of Golden Dawn. Today it is thousand times more necessary to deepen this fight, when tens of thousands of political refugees arrive in Europe fleeing from genocide as that perpetrated by dog Al-Assad against the Syrian revolution before the “crocodile tears” of European Governments and Obama who are the ones that command these massacres against the rebel masses.
So when we hear of students that have taken the technological Institute of Athens to fight for the freedom of political prisoners and in defense of the refugees, we greet their action with revolutionary fervor and say that this is a huge example to multiply and deepen. (more…)
