Translated from Italian by Act For Freedom Now!
As our comrade Gabriel hasn’t written any official communique so far, these words intend to be precisely a communique/diary and a way of sharing with people and comrades in affinity what he thinks in regard to certain questions.
Gabriel explicitly asked his comrade/partner to select the passages (from letters he sent to her) where he reflects/analyses and/or speculates on interesting issues related to the current situation: «coronavirus» in prison, his judicial situation and the circumstances of his imprisonment.
Gabriel is in good health and spirits and he’s ready for the war he’s expecting in the jails of the Spanish State. In spite of the sentence issued by the Supreme tribunal of Lisbon confirming his consignment to the Spanish State, we still don’t know whether the «authorities» will extradite him without taking into account the «state of emergency» declared following the «Covid-19» «pandemic». As a matter of fact, the «state of emergency» itself (theoretically) is preventing prisoners from being extradited to other countries as long as it lasts.
More information to follow.
Long live anarchy!

Yesterday, as I was listening to (watching) TV, I had already guessed that these scum would leave us without visits and today… well today was a crap day…

From The Acorn:
The First Industrial Repression saw us thrown off the land, forced into crowded towns and cities, used as human fodder for the dark satanic mills of the new steam-powered capitalist world.
The Second Industrial Repression electrified the rule of The Machine. New generations were born who had never tasted freedom. Their lives and their thinking were increasingly dominated by the rhythms of industrial mass production.
The Third Industrial Repression heralded the arrival of computers and robots. Human beings were now expected to meekly conform to these automated norms and functions.
And now we face the onset of the Fourth Industrial Repression (4IR), the most deathly repression of them all…
The 4IR wants to own, control and profit from everything that exists in this world.
Its Internet of Things aims to create a matrix of total connectivity, of which it is the owner.
You, your home, your family, your friends, your relationships and your activities will all belong to the 4IR. (more…)

It’s the story of a man who falls from a 50-story building.
To calm down as he falls into the void he keeps saying to himself:
So far so good.
So far so good.
So far so good…
But it’s not the fall that matters, it’ s the landing.
As in the metaphor of the French film “La Haine”, we live in a world that has been condemned to disaster. The continued destruction of the ecosystems to extract raw materials, the systematic degradation of the earth’s crust by monocultures and agro-industry, the expulsion or annihilation of species, the transformation of the oceans in dunghills, the irreversible damage to the ozone layer… has had an exponential advance in recent years. They’ve put us on a path which is more than evident a transformation, for the worse, of life on earth.
At the same time, we have generated societies that are annihilators of the different, of the enemies of risk and adventure.The perpetuation of hierarchies and authorities, slaves of an economic system that puts the flow of goods above everything else. Profit as the only ideology. In which the virtual imposes itself on reality. The simulation to the experience. (more…)

(Video clip sent from Delta sector)
Today is the third day of the prisoner strike in Korydallos. Basically the prisoners who work in the jail’s kitchen and the ones who work as cleaners are on strike. Social services is only supplying 2 sandwiches per day for each prisoner. Everything else is the same.
Nothing much changed of prison life although there is the strike.
At least here in Alpha sector.
Problem is that the strike didn’t yet start in all prisons of Greece, but it did start in around 65%.
And there are not yet determined demands. It is obvious it is for changes of law because of corona but nothing is specified what exactly we want.
Last 2 days there was symbolic noise protest of prisoners. Against closing of the cells at 20h, which is the normal time of cell closing. Basically just hitting doors to make noise to annoy cops, but nothing happened here they just closed us in cells
In Delta sector of Korydallos prisoners have set some fires yesterday.
After the fire, MAT (riot cops) arrived and they heavily beat one guy and took him with them. I don’t know where they took him, I just hope they will not say “he died of corona”. Maybe they took him to an isolation cell or to the jail hospital…
To find out more about the current situation in the Greek prisons read these articles on the site of Actforfreedomnow:

Enraged youth from the Anderlecht area of the capital city Brussels, Belgium rioted yesterday, attacking cop vehicles and hurled missiles at the cops, injuring one and beating up another. The riot was triggered when a cop patrol pursued a 19 year old on a scooter because he refused to stop for a curfew check. He hit an oncoming cop vehicle head on and died on the spot. Hundreds of angry youth from the local area instantly took to the street after a callout on social media attacking the cops who had arrived to reinforce those involved in the killing. Several cop vehicles were set on fire, one youth liberated a gun from a vehicle, shooting it in the air as he ran off.
The local youth has been named as Adil and already the media is doing the state’s dirty work by sending out its appeal for calm, using his family as a weapon to suppress the anger of a local youth’s murder and against the curfew. The cops have further reinforced the area today (Sunday), even with water cannon because they fear that the area will breakout in further rioting. Belgium has been in a four-week curfew in an attempt to stem the spread of the coronavirus epidemic.
This is a clear sign of the riots and insurrection to come that has now arrived in fortress Europe, after other outbreaks of rebellion in other parts of the world, we are even aware of scum media clearly attempting along with the authorities to suppress any outbreaks of rebellion against the coronavirus curfews*. It is only a moment of time before the global backlash erupts.
First Wuhan, Now Brussels, Insurrection Everywhere!
*Riots have erupted in Bristol, China & Palestine, even telephone towers burnt around prison island UK, along with reported raids on supermarkets in the South of Italy in response to ‘lockdown measures’ (curfew!)

31 March 2020
12 years after the death of Jonny Cariqueo Yáñez, who was assassinated on March 31 by a heart attack caused by a strong beating by the repressive forces of the State of $hile, during his arrest in a police hunt that March 29, 2008 in the commune of Pudahuel.
On the afternoon of March 31 of this year, a few hours from the curfew, we abandoned an homemade incendiary device on a Transantiago bus, for it to catch fire in or near its terminal, in one of the peripheries from the city.
This is an attack on the cruel and bloody machinery that governs civic life, against amnesia, passivity and inertia, attitudes which we reject, even in times of sanitary protection, since the war continues. The political-social-economic crisis that was being experienced in the country, which has been enhanced with the current world health crisis, shows us, once again, the clear interests and priorities of power in preserving the pockets of the rich and their companies rather than looking after the well-being of the common people, the poor people, the people marginalized and hostages of the police state. So we insist on breaking with the tranquility that seeks and promotes power. (more…)

Según los medios de comunicación, otras cuatro antenas de telefonía móvil de Vodafone han sido incendiadas en las últimas 24 horas después de los recientes ataques de fuego a la infraestructura 5G que tuvieron lugar el 2 y 3 de abril.
También hay torres 3G y 4G entre las destruidas, aunque no está claro si fueron saboteadas involuntariamente o no. La información sobre los ataques en sí fue difícil de obtener debido a la limitada información disponible en los medios de comunicación y a la rápida censura en los medios sociales populares.
Desde los primeros ataques de la semana pasada, se han reportado al menos 20 ataques en todo el país, y hay reportes de ingenieros siendo interrogados, acosados y atacados por personas que tienen problemas con el 5G. Es evidente que, aunque todo está en bloqueo, la continua expansión y desarrollo del 5G ha seguido siendo una prioridad. El régimen del Reino Unido y las empresas de comunicaciones se vieron obligados a emitir una declaración en la que describían los riesgos que el 5G representa para la salud humana como “sin fondo” y achacaban el acoso y los ataques a las “teorías de la conspiración”. La empresa de medios sociales Facebook sacó de la red varios sitios dedicados a la grabación y aparentemente a la llamada de ataques anti-5G, y también hizo que su empresa de aplicaciones de mensajería WhatsApp restringiera la transmisión de mensajes. Esto es parte de un intento de plataforma cruzada por Twitter, Google, YouTube, etc. en un esfuerzo con el estado para coordinar la censura y el seguimiento de lo que ellos describen como “desinformación” sobre los orígenes de Covid-19.

PDF: MANIFIESTO HUELGA
Esperamos que todxs os encontréis lo mejor posible, dada la nueva situación de “pandemia” y Estado de Alarma, con el siguiente recorte de libertades, que nos está tocando vivir.
Por aquí hemos estado dándole vueltas a cómo podemos responder de algún modo ante esta nueva coyuntura política, económica y social que afecta a todo el mundo en su globalidad.
Y nos ha parecido acertado, para empezar, sumarnos a la convocatoria internacional de huelga de alquileres e hipotecas, convocada para el día 1 de Abril. (more…)

23rd March – In the evening when (now infected) Prime Minister Boris Johnson declared the state of emergency and the new measures to deal with the coronavirus, cops in Southmead, Bristol, were harassing young people on the streets. The police were attacked with stones and bottles and two Iceland supermarket vans were torched outside their depo. Several cars were also smashed and set on fire across the city. Young people are already always under ‘special measures’ by the police -abuse, beatings, harassment, dispersal, special conditions – and rioting and fighting back is the only real solution, not staying in your house and being afraid.
The supermarkets and the other companies which are profiting massively from this ‘crisis’, -which is solely the responsibility of the structures of power and capital-, are valid and understandable targets for the nihilistic and anti-social rage against this situation.
The lies of the media tell us that we are ‘all in this together’ but it’s clear that we are not, and never will be.
It’s the fight of the young people and the irreducibles against this sick system and this is but one drop from the storm to come.
Death to the politicians, the police and those who have poisoned this world.

From Athens Indymedia:
In the unprecedented social conditions we are living in, the spread of coronavirus has taken critical dimensions for the national healthcare systems and the capitalist mode of production as well as social organisation in general. For the system to survive, state and bosses implement totalitarian politics and a further devaluation of our lives.
– Lack of health facilities for the big majority of the population
– Militarisation of our everyday life, with a ban on transportation enforced through economic, surveilled and penal repression
– Mass layoffs, intensification and dire conditions for those working in hospitals, super markets, fast food restaurants, telecommunications
– Creation of concentration camps for migrants and mass incarceration in prisons without any health provision
– No meaningful measure for the homeless, drug users, sex workers
– Increase of domestic and gender violence cases as well as psychological breakdowns due to the prolonged confinement of people in their homes
All of the above make up a dystopia to which we deem necessary to respond to in a direct and collective way, self-organised and in solidarity with every subject that is experiencing the physical, psychical and mental consequences of totalitarianism; and at the same time to fight to break the unproductive and totalitarian management of the present crisis by the state. For these reasons we want to communicate and create a network for solidarity and struggle, with initial aims the following: (more…)

El viernes 27 de marzo del 2020 la Cárcel de Alta Seguridad suspende de forma indefinida las visitas y encomiendas dejando en la práctica completamente aislados a los distintos presos que se encuentran rehenes del Estado. No podemos entender estas medidas de forma distinta a una
acción represiva que lejos de buscar una “cuarentena” o medidas sanitarias deja a nuestrxs compañerxs presos a merced de sus carceleros sin la posibilidad de comunicación ni ingresos de elementos básicos para la higiene y la subsistencia.
Recordemos que en esta prisión se encuentran secuestradxs cumpliendo condena Juan Aliste, Marcelo Villarroel, Juan Flores, Joaquín García, Mauricio Hernandez Norambuena y algunos prisionerxs de la revuelta.
Hoy la ciudadanía consigue “permisos de tránsito” para abarrotarse en los supermercados e ir a producir, aún en las comunas con cuarentena total.
¡No aceptamos este aislamiento total disfrazado de medida sanitaria!
¡No dejaremos que sepulten a nuestrxs compañerxs en prisión!
On Friday, March 27, 2020, the High Security Prison indefinitely suspends visits and parcels, effectively leaving the various prisoners who are hostages of the State completely isolated. We cannot understand these measures differently than another repressive action, that far from seeking a “quarantine” or sanitary measures, leaves our comrades imprisoned at the mercy of their jailers without the possibility of communication or an income of basic needs for hygiene and subsistence.
Let us remember that in this prison there are our kidnapped prisoners serving sentences such as Juan Aliste, Marcelo Villarroel, Juan Flores, Joaquín García, Mauricio Hernandez Norambuena and some prisoners of the revolt.
Today, citizens get “transit permits” to fill up in supermarkets and go to their jobs, even in districts with total quarantine.
We do not accept this total isolation disguised as a sanitary measure!
We will not let our comrades be buried in prison!

A day of robberies in big chain stores to distribute to homeless people. Audio-visual material recorded in the streets of Santiago, $hile in times of quarantine and militarized curfew under the pretext of the Covid-19 virus.
Background music: Golpebalabeso/Niña Debacle/Paniko. Recorded in Chauri Chaura Studio.
All sanitary measures were taken to avoid harming the street people in terms of hygiene and viruses, but the use of white overalls is a gesture of rebellion and action against the power here in the territory governed by the $hilean state. Many high school students resist and attack the police in their jails-schools while wearing these clothes that the police hate and fear. Here is a video for those who didn’t know and to give some context.
Long live the violent war against authority and power!
As long as misery exists there will be rebellion!
