Banner Drop Action by Anarchist Comrades in Malaysia

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020

We were told by friends in Malaysia that the transmission of the COVID-19 pandemic has gradually subsided since the pandemic struck earlier this year.

Until the Sabah state election was held on September 26. Power-mad politicians have campaigned in Sabah which at that time was spreading brutally this pandemic.

Politicians from Peninsular Malaysia, who originally came from controlled areas, entered Sabah, which at the time was experiencing a contagious outbreak to campaign to ensure their party won. And then brought the epidemic of the disease back to Peninsular Malaysia, thus triggering new infections and clusters when the virus spreads again.

As a result of politicians not taking care of these SOPs and quarantine, the situation in Malaysia today is getting worse where the people are restless with the new wave that is hitting soon. Politicians are blaming the people again for the new wave as if the people are not following the SOP and social distancing.

Malaysians to some extent began to reject these irresponsible politicians because they did not take seriously the issue, involving the health of the people.

The people are fed up with dirty politics and political coups that are more important than the health of the people. Because of that, the people began to show their dissatisfaction through various mediums, to make politicians aware of the courage to take responsibility for their actions and the mistakes they have made.

Friends there demanded that these politicians step down from their respective seats because they had failed in managing the well-being of the people.

Salute Malaysian friends!

Aplazamiento Manifestacion en Defensa de los Puestos de Tirso de Molina – Madrid, España

Thursday, October 8th, 2020

APLAZAMIENTO MANIFESTACIÓN EN DEFENSA DE LOS PUESTOS DE TIRSO DE MOLINA

Desde la asamblea de los puestos políticos de Tirso de Molina hemos decidido APLAZAR la convocatoria de MANIFESTACIÓN del próximo 11 DE OCTUBRE.

En su lugar realizaremos, como venimos haciendo desde hace más de dos meses una CONCENTRACIÓN EN LA PLAZA A LAS DOCE DE LA MAÑANA.

La caótica situación que estamos viviendo en Madrid en las últimas dos semanas nos ha llevado a tomar esta decisión. Los madrileños somos víctimas de las políticas partidistas tanto del gobierno regional como del central, que no dudan en usarnos como rehenes de estrategias “sanitarias” que tienen poco que ver con la salud pública, y más con los cálculos electorales o de posibles mociones de censura. Asistimos atónitos a medidas de control de la epidemia de cara a la galería, cuyo objetivo final no es la defensa de la salud de los trabajadores, inmigrantes, pobres, etc, y a las amenazas veladas de nuevas medidas restrictivas de las pocas libertades que nos quedan. Ante este panorama preferimos seguir con el formato de las concentraciones todos los domingos en la plaza, espacio amplio en el que podemos mantener suficiente distancia, sin renunciar por ello a seguir movilizándonos en defensa de nuestros legítimos intereses.

Animamos a todos los compañeros/as que tenían previsto acudir a la manifestación a que en su lugar se acerquen este domingo a la plaza a las doce de la mañana, para decirle al alcalde y al concejal de centro que ¡los puestos de Tirso se quedan!

Esta desconvocatoria es un APLAZAMIENTO así que permanecer atentos a próximas convocatorias.

¡NO PASARÁN!

Greece: The Refugee Camp of Moria Burns as State Repression Intensifies

Wednesday, September 16th, 2020



Refugees demonstrating after the burning of Moria. “Azadi!” Freedom!

In the following report from Greece, anarchists describe the burning of the refugee camp, Moria, and the response countrywide, as well as the latest chapter in other struggles against state repression on a variety of fronts.

A report by Radio Fragmata.

Another month, another report on the situation here in Greece. There has been no pause in the repression of the state, nor any peace for the marginalized and excluded. Another historic squat has been evicted, the economic despair many already face is becoming generalized, society drifts towards the right at the guidance of state and corporate media, and the largest concentration camp housing migrants in all of Europe has been engulfed in flames, displacing thousands.

As in the rest of the world, each morning brings new concerns, new disasters, new forms of precarity. We share the following information in the pursuit of a relentless and borderless solidarity.

-Radio Fragmata, September 2020

Moria Burns—The Greek State Plays Victim

The refugee camp Moria on the island of Lesvos has burned down.

The state claims this was the result of demonstrations by desperate people inside the camp reacting to new measures the police had opportunistically declared in response to an inevitable and now unavoidable outbreak of COVID-19 inside the camp. Some 35 cases have been made public as of early September; considering the intense overcrowding of the camp, the number should be assumed to be much higher. Some wonder whether nearby fascists took the opportunity to set fires under the cover of the refugees’ protests. It is certain that some of the villagers wanted those fleeing the flames to burn alive, as they pushed those who tried to flee to the nearby village of Mytilene back towards the blaze. (more…)

EN/ES: Call in solidarity with political anarchist stands – Tirso de Molina square, Madrid (Spain)

Thursday, September 10th, 2020

Since last July 19, the date on which the municipal police evicted us from the Tirso de Molina square with the threat of sanctions and seizure of the stands, we have been gathering every Sunday to protest against this arbitrary decision by the City Council. We maintain that it is a political decision rather than a health one, since that day we were complying with the measures imposed by the Community; masks, distance between the stalls, hand disinfection gels, if we add to this that the space in the plaza is wide and the number of stalls that we set up that morning was small, it was not possible that there would be crowds.

In fact, the only official justification we received from the agents was not having a license and the assertion that “El Rastro was closed by municipal order.” The reality is that El Rastro continues to be closed as of today since the stalls do not accept the City Council’s reform plans that seek to end the emblematic market as we know it and also know that for more than three decades political stands lack licenses. For this reason, we are convinced that the Pandemic is only an excuse to eliminate political positions that spread ideas and free culture, and it is clear that Tirso de Molina and El Rastro are also part of the gentrification plans that we have been suffering in the area in recent years.

Automatización, robótica y mano de obra en la 4ta y 5ta revoluciones industriales

Wednesday, September 9th, 2020

De la revista 325 (próximamente en español):

DE | Automatisierung, Robotik und Arbeit in der 4ten und 5ten industriellen Revolution

EN | Automation, Robotics & Labour in the 4th & 5th Industrial Revolutions

Desde que comenzó la primera Revolución Industrial en la década de 1700, las sucesivas revoluciones industriales han afectado profundamente a los trabajadores, a los propios trabajadores, creando incluso el concepto de ‘clase trabajadora’, cómo vivían, su integración en los agujeros del infierno urbano que avanzaban, las prisiones de las fábricas, molinos y pozos mineros, incluso sus hijos no se libraron de la indignidad, ni siquiera de la muerte de la esclavitud moderna de la época. La industrialización, el resultado de la mecanización en la industria, alimentó la esclavitud moderna y la domesticación de los seres humanos en todos los rincones de los imperios y colonias en expansión, no solo en el resto del planeta vivo. Ahora estamos en la cúspide del comienzo de una 4ta Revolución Industrial (4IR) e incluso una 5ta (5IR) que afectará tan radicalmente nuestro encarcelamiento dentro de la sociedad tecnológica como las hizo en las anteriores. El concepto mismo de trabajo, incluso el trabajo mismo, cambiará más allá del reconocimiento una vez más. Ya en la consiguiente ‘pandemia del coronavirus’ y en los controles de toque de queda que se han aplicado a miles de millones en todo el mundo, las señales de las próximas revoluciones industriales ya están apareciendo, y se informa que millones perdieron sus empleos en muchos países.

Automation, Robotics & Labour in the 4th & 5th Industrial Revolutions

Wednesday, September 9th, 2020

From 325 #12:

DE | Automatisierung, Robotik und Arbeit in der 4ten und 5ten industriellen Revolution

ES | Automatización, robótica y mano de obra en la 4ta y 5ta revoluciones industriales

Since the first Industrial Revolution began in the 1700’s, successive industrial revolutions have profoundly affected labour, the workers themselves, creating even the concept of the ‘working class’, how they lived, their integration into the advancing urban hell holes, the prisons of the factories, mills and mining pits, even their children were not spared the indignity, even death of modern slavery of the time. Industrialization, the result of mechanisation in industry, fed modern enslavement and domestication of human beings in every corner of the spreading empires and colonies not just the rest of the living planet.

We are now on the cusp of the beginning of a 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) and even a 5th (5IR) that will affect just as radically our imprisonment within the technological society as it did in the previous ones. The very concept of labour, even work itself will change beyond recognition once again. Already in the ensuing ‘coronavirus pandemic’ and curfew controls that have been enforced on billions worldwide, the signals of the coming industrial revolutions are already appearing, with millions being reported to lose their jobs in many countries.

$hile: En memoria de Pedro Villarroel – ES/EN

Thursday, September 3rd, 2020

Pedro fallece hoy en un hospital de Santiago de Chile en medio de una Pandemia. Don pedro ingresó en el recinto hospitalario por otros motivos, en dicha situación se contagió de COVID-19 y su cuerpo -como el de muchos hombres y mujeres que se han perdido en esta pandemia de mierda-, sucumbió al virus.

Don Pedro tiene también una historia de lucha, de una lucha quizás menos visible como lo es aquella lucha de las familias, de los entornos más cercanos a los compañeros represaliados. Don Pedro estuvo junto a su hijo –Marcelo Villarroel Sepúlveda– cuando por primera vez fue detenido en noviembre de 1987, Marcelo tenía por esos días 14 años de edad y conoció las cárceles de la dictadura. También estuvo en 1992 luego de que su hijo fuera herido y apresado, por los siguientes 12 años, y estuvo, más tarde, el 2008, cuando en amplios operativos internacionales, su hijo fue expuesto y confinado en cárceles del territorio controlado por el Estado argentino, y luego, como rehén, trasladado a las mazmorras de las cárceles chilenas.

‘Illness and Capital’ by Alfredo M. Bonanno

Thursday, August 27th, 2020

Illness, i.e.a faulty functioning of the organism, is not peculiar to man. Animals also get ill, and even things can in their own way present defects in functioning. The idea of illness as abnormality is the classic one that was developed by medical science.
The response to illness, mainly thanks to the positivist ideology which still dominates medicine today, is that of the cure, that is to say, an external intervention chosen from specific practices, aimed at restoring the conditions of a given idea of normality.
Yet it would be a mistake to think that the search for the causes of illness has always run parallel to this scientific need to restore normality. For centuries remedies did not go hand in hand with the study of causes, which at times were absolutely fantastical. Remedies had their own logic, especially when based on empirical knowledge of the forces of nature.

In more recent times a critique of the sectarianism of science, including medicine, has based itself on the idea of man’s totality: an entity made up of various natural elements—intellectual, economic, social, cultural, political and so on. It is in this new perspective that the materialist and dialectical hypothesis of Marxism inserted itself. The variously described totality of the new, real man no longer divided up into the sectors that the old positivism had got us used to, was again encapsulated in a one-way determinism by the Marxists. The cause of illness was thus considered to be due exclusively to capitalism which, by alienating man through work, exposed him to a distorted relationship with nature and ‘normality’, the other side of illness.

Letter by Thomas Meyer-Falk for the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners (Germany)

Monday, August 24th, 2020

Prisons are places of darkness, of gloom, real life cannot flourish there. Because what is “real life”? It is one in freedom, integrated in friendly relationships, experiencing oneself as an individual. Because we live ourselves and are not lived.

It is not without reason that prison criticism is therefore always also a fundamental critique of society and the system, because within the prison walls the same mechanisms prevail as outside the gates, only in a much more severe form.

ABC’s Solidarity week for anarchist prisoners takes place in a time marked by the Corona pandemic. The pandemic in particular once again clearly reveals the injustices.
Members of marginalized social groups have a disproportionately higher risk of infection, illness and death (which also applies outside pandemic times, but is only currently particularly evident). And those who are in prison are even more vulnerable, because the general conditions, as the Prisoners’ Union (GG/BO) also tirelessly points out, are often pretty lousy. (more…)

COVID-19的世界:资本主义时代的传染病

Wednesday, August 19th, 2020

作者:CONTRA TODA NOCIVIDAD, March 2020 译者:晚霞

原文刊于 325 新发布的小册子 ‘Against the Fourth and Fifth Industrial Revolutions’ (ACN)

对于这个星球的自然资源的过度利用正在将人类带入一个自毁的边缘。我们生活在大多数是由连续不断的化学产品(杀虫剂、杀虫剂、内分泌干扰物等)的蔓延而导致的传染病之中,这对于我们的健康是有危害的。与此同时,我们生活在会导致大量人口过敏与患病的高程度的放射性污染所包围的大气中。这种对自然资源的开发还带来了技术工业对领土的破坏:地中海变成了下水道、东南亚变成了充满了化工物的荒地、非洲变成了一个大垃圾场,等等。Covid-19病毒的出现是工业文明的一个结果。

对于我们来说重要的是并不是这个病毒可能由于栖息地的工业化而从一个蝙蝠开始变异,或者是否这是一次美国对于中国经济的攻击。对于我们来说,最重要的事是这是一个让一切生活进程、日常物品甚至是地球上的生物都商品化的这个体制最后的结果;这是贪婪的体制企图毁灭一切活物,从而让这个世界完全人工化。我们不能认为我们基于在地球上连续不断增长的生活方式实际上是有限的,不会带来这些后果并使得其他灾难到来。

我们日常生活中存在的数百种化学物质改变了自然进程,从而导致了数百种“灾难”(流行病、气候变化等)。这些产品在中国每年造成150万人死亡,而且没有在新闻中报道,既没有引发社会担忧,也没有被限制,也没有导致恐慌状态。在西班牙,每年有1万人死于污染,但并没有恐慌——他们只是工业世界继续运转所必需的受害者的一部分,因为重要的是进程和它的贪婪不会停止。 (more…)

Slovenia: Tactics and challenges in the ongoing social uprising

Thursday, August 13th, 2020

As A-Radio Berlin we had the opportunity of talking to a comrade from the Federation for Anarchist Organizing (FAO) in Slovenia and Croatia.

Amongst the topics were the ongoing social uprising in Slovenia, the dynamics and challenges of such a movement in the Covid-19 context, state repression and neonazi attacks as well as a comparison to the 2012/2013 uprising. Last but not least our comrade offers an analysis of the tactics used in the struggle and how to possibly go forward.
