„Öko-extremistische Mafia” Arturo Vasquez leitet rechtliche Schritte ein und droht der Gegeninformations-Seite 325

EN: “Eco-Extremist Mafia” Arturo Vasquez submits legal & FBI threat to anarchist counter-info site 325

ES: El presunto teórico ecoextremista “Abe Cabrera” y las amenazas legales contra 325

IT: “Mafia eco-estremista” Arturo Vasquez minaccia azioni legali e FBI contro gli anarchici del sito di contro-informazione 325

Gerade als wir dachten, die öko-extremistische / nihilistisch-rechte „Mafia“ könnte nicht noch lächerlicher werden, schickten uns die Gefährt*innen von nostate.net die unten stehende E-Mail. Es ist eine über deren Provider verschickte Drohung das FBI zu verständigen von Arturo Vasquez (Abe Cabrera), dem Boss der nordamerikanischen „unbezwingbaren öko-extremistischen Theroretiker“, Herausgeber der öko-faschistischen Zeitschrift Atassa. Nachdem all seine „unbeugsamen“ „Gefährt*innen“ ihn hängen ließen, ist das einzige was ihm einfällt, zu drohen die Polizei zu rufen.

Diese Drohung des Ökofaschisten ist nichts anderes als ein Geschenk an uns und zeigt, worum es dem Papst Atassa wirklich geht. Ein elender fantasierender Verräter, der glaubt, er könnte ohne Konsequenzen verspotten und bedrohen, sich online und auf Blogs bewegen und dort den willkürlichen Terrorismus und Autoritarismus der Individualists Tending Toward the Wild (ITS) verbreiten und währenddessen Anarchie angreifen. Ein katholischer Floh, der mit dem anarchistischen Raum und der Kontroverse über die Verbreitung von Morddrohungen gegen Gefährt*innen verbunden ist, vermischt anarchistische mit irrationalistischen und religiösen Ideen.

Vasquez, Informant und wertloser Feigling, glaubt er nicht, das FBI und dutzende andere Sicherheitsbehörden beobachten schon längst unsere Seite? Weiß diese „Mafia“ denn nicht, wenn unsere kleine Organisation herausfinden kann, wo genau er lebt, mit wem er in Verbindung steht und wo er arbeitet und seine Zeit verbringt, wird das FBI genau wissen, wer und was er ist? Vasquez war immer ein nützlicher Idiot für die Staatsorgane, genauso wie der ganze „Öko-Extremisten“ Trend.

Gegeninformation ist kontinuierliche und fortlaufende Praxis, ausgerichtet auf unsere anarchistischen, nihilistischen und antiautoritären Ziele. Es ist uns wirklich egal, ob unsere Seite vom Netz genommen wird, sie wird in irgendeiner Form weiter verfügbar sein. Alles wird weitergehen.

Solidarität mit den Gefährt*innen, die gegen den autoritären und misanthropischen Müll kämpfen.

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,
ich heiße Arturo Vasquez und wohne in den USA. Ich wurde aufgrund einer Verwechslung zur Zielscheibe einer Belästigungskampagne von einer von Ihnen gehosteten Webseite, nämlich: https://325.nostate.net/.

Die beleidigenden Links sind hier aufgelistet: [1 & 2]

Wie Sie sehen können, wurde auf dieser Webseite ein Bild von mir, eines von meiner Frau und meine Adresse sowie Morddrohungen gegen mich veröffentlicht. Aufgrund der Natur der Bedrohungen glaube ich nicht, dass dieser Inhalt hinsichtlich Ihrer aktuellen Richtlinien für das Hosten einer Webseite akzeptabel ist. Andernfalls sehen wir uns gezwungen, rechtliche Schritte zu prüfen und das FBI einzuschalten. Die Veröffentlichung meiner Adresse und unserer Bilder auf Ihrer Seite ist nicht akzeptabel. Meine Kontaktinformationen sind unten angegeben. Ich freue mich von Ihnen zu hören.

Mit freundlichen Grüße
Arturo Vasquez

United Kingdom – The alleged eco-extremist theorist “Abe Cabrera” and the legal threats against 325

Monday, November 19th, 2018

By La Rebelion de las Palabras

325 is an anti-authoritarian and rebellious web space based in the United Kingdom which is related to us through affinity. In addition to giving coverage (mainly in English) to the actions and expressions of the social war and to the voices of those who remain in the bars around the world for acting against domination and its values, they have also been an important part of the diffusion of writings and communiques against the self-styled eco-extremist tendency, helping to unmask them and promote anarchist criticism of their methods and proposals. Recently, 325 published information (here and here in Spanish) where they gave a name and face to the deceitful fraud who is the alleged ideologist and ringleader, that who under the pseudonym Abe Cabrera has dedicated himself to spreading this trend in the US, a lawyer named Arturo Vasquez, for which 325 have received threats of legal measures against their page in the case of not withdrawing that information.

We, as affinities of the compas of 325 and as refractaries to this trend, have also taken positions at different times against the eco-extremist cynicism, translating texts from comrades from other geographies or disseminating those in our language (ver aquí, aquí, aquí, aquí, aquí, aquí o aquí) and giving support to those who were the object of their bravado and threats, that also being us at the time (although the only fear that caused us that was from dying of respiratory failure from laughing too much).

Although we had decided to stop talking about eco-extremism to avoid entering their game and so not granting them the publicity and attention which they so desperately seek to find in anarchist spaces, we have felt trapped by the same threats they have raised against our comrades of 325 because that could have been ourselves, and for that reason we want to support them and share the information for whose publication they are being threatened. If they touch one of us, they touch us all.

Fuck Eco-Extremism and its fallacies.
Fuck the police snitches.
Strength to 325 and to all of us who have positioned ourselves against eco-extremism and other attempts at parapolicial/authoritarian infiltration within anarchic spaces and movements.

Reino Unido – El presunto teórico ecoextremista “Abe Cabrera” y las amenazas legales contra 325

Monday, November 19th, 2018

325 es un espacio web afín, antiautoritario y rebelde con sede en Reino Unido. Además de dar cobertura (principalmente en inglés) a las acciones y expresiones de la guerra social y a las voces de quienes permanecen entre las rejas de todo el mundo por actuar contra la dominación y sus valores, también han sido una importante parte de la difusión de escritos y comunicados en contra de la autodenominada tendencia eco-extremista, contribuyendo a desenmascararles y a promover la crítica anarquista a sus métodos y propuestas. Recientemente, 325 publicó información (aquí y aquí en castellano) donde ponían nombre y rostro al farsante que sería el presunto ideólogo y cabecilla que bajo el pseudónimo de Abe Cabrera se ha dedicado a difundir esta tendencia en EE.UU., un abogado llamado Arturo Vasquez, por lo que 325 han recibido amenazas de medidas legales contra su página en caso de no retirar esa información.

Nosotres, como afines a les compas de 325 y como refractaries a esta tendencia, también hemos tomado postura en diferentes momentos contra el cinismo ecoextremista, traduciendo textos de compañeres de otras geografías o difundiendo aquellos en nuestra lengua (ver aquí, aquí, aquí, aquí, aquí, aquí o aquí) y dando soporte a quienes fueron objeto de sus bravatas y de sus amenazas, siéndolo también nosotres en su momento (si bien el único miedo que nos provocó aquello fue el de morir por insuficiencia respiratoria de tanto reírnos).

Aunque habíamos decidido dejar de hablar sobre el eco-extremismo para evitar entrar en su juego y no concederles esa publicidad y esa atención que tan desesperadamente buscan encontrar en los espacios anarquistas, nos hemos sentido atravesades por las mismas amenazas que han levantado contra nuestres compañeres de 325 porque podríamos haber sido nosotres, y por eso queremos apoyarles y compartir la información por cuya publicación están siendo amenazades. Si nos tocan a uno, nos tocan a todes.

A la mierda el ecoextremismo y sus falacias.
A la mierda los chivatos policiales.
Fuerza a 325 y a todes quienes nos hemos posicionado en contra del ecoextremismo y del resto de intentos de infiltración parapolicial/autoritaria dentro de los espacios y movimientos anárquicos.

16 de noviembre, 2018

Cuando ya estábamos convencides de que la “Mafia” eco-extremista/nihilista derechista no podría ser más ridícula, recibimos este e-mail a continuación de les compañeres de nostate.net. Es una amenaza a través de su proveedor del dominio web por el jefe de los “indomables” “teóricos eco-extremistas”, Arturo Vasquez (Abe Cabrera), editor del periódico eco-fascista Atassa de llamar al FBI. Después de que todos esos “compañeros indomables” suyos le colgasen a secar, lo único que le quedaba por hacer es amenazarnos con llamar a la policía.

Esta amenaza del eco-fascista no es nada más que un regalo para nosotres y muestra que de qué va realmente el papa Atassa. Un miserable chivato fantasioso que cree que puede burlarse de nosotres y amenazarnos sin consecuencias, rondando por espacios y blogs online promoviendo el terrorismo indiscriminado y el autoritarismo de los Individualistas Tendiendo a lo Salvaje mientras ataca a la anarquía. Una pulga católica unida al espacio anarquista y a la controversia de difundir amenazas de muerte contra compañeres, mezclando ideas anarquistas con otras irracionales y religiosas.

Vasquez, informante e insignificante cobarde, ¿no cree acaso que el FBI y decenas de otras agencias de seguridad ya monitorizan nuestro sitio web? ¿no sabe ya esta “Mafia” que si nuestra pequeña organización puede averiguar exactamente dónde viven, dónde trabaja y pasa su tiempo, entonces el FBI también sabrá exactamente quién y qué es? Vasquez siempre fue un tonto útil en manos del Estado, igual que toda la tendencia “eco-extremista”.

La contrainformación es una práctica en marcha, continua, dirigida hacia nuestros objetivos anarquistas, nihilistas y antiautoritarios. Realmente no nos importa si nuestro sitio es clausurado, volverá de un modo u otro. Todo continuará.

Solidaridad con les compañeres luchando contra la basura autoritaria y misántropa.

“Eco-Extremist Mafia” Arturo Vasquez submits legal & FBI threat to anarchist counter-info site 325

Friday, November 16th, 2018

IT: “Mafia eco-estremista” Arturo Vasquez minaccia azioni legali e FBI contro gli anarchici del sito di contro-informazione 325

ES: El presunto teórico ecoextremista “Abe Cabrera” y las amenazas legales contra 325

DE: „Öko-extremistische Mafia” Arturo Vasquez leitet rechtliche Schritte ein und droht der Gegeninformations-Seite 325

Just as we had been convinced that the eco-extreme/nihilist-right “Mafia” could not get even more ridiculous, we were sent this email below by the comrades of nostate.net. It’s a threat via their domain provider by the boss of the North American ‘indomitable’ “eco-extremist theorists”, Arturo Vasquez (Abe Cabrera), editor of eco-fascist journal Atassa to call the FBI. After all those other ‘indomitable’ ‘comrades’ of his hung him out to dry the only thing for him to do is threaten to call the police.

This threat the eco-fascist makes is nothing but a gift to us and shows what the pope Atassa is really about. A miserable snitch fantasist who thinks he can mock and threaten without consequences, moving around online spaces and blogs promoting the indiscriminate terrorism and authoritarianism of the Individualists Tending Toward the Wild (ITS) whilst attacking anarchy. A Catholic flea attached to the anarchist space and the controversy of spreading death threats against comrades, mixing up anarchist ideas with irrationalist and religious ones.

Vasquez, informer and worthless coward, doesn’t he think that the FBI and dozens of other security agencies don’t already monitor our site? Doesn’t this “Mafia” already know that if our small organisation can find out exactly where he lives, who he associates with, where he works and spends time, then the FBI might also know exactly who and what he is? Vasquez always was a useful idiot to the arms of the State, just like the entire “Eco-Extremism” trend.

Counter-information is an ongoing, continuous practice directed towards our anarchist, nihilist and anti-authoritarian aims. It really doesn’t matter to us if our site is taken down, it will be back in one form or another. Everything will continue.

Solidarity to the comrades fighting against authoritarian and misanthropic trash.

Dear Sir or Madam: My name is Arturo Vasquez, and I live in the United States. I have been the target of a harassment campaign based on mistaken identity from a site that you host, namely: https://325.nostate.net/

The offending links are listed here:

https://325.nostate.net/tag/arturo-vasquez-art-cabrera-eco-fascist/
https://325.nostate.net/2018/10/23/more-non-news-about-the-eco-extremist-mafia-by-l-uk/

As you can see, my picture, a picture of my wife, and my address have been posted on that site, as well as death threats. Due to the nature of the threats, I do not believe that the webmaster would take these articles down. Please advise if you believe that this content is acceptable according to your current policies of website hosting, otherwise we will be forced to investigate legal action, as well as inform the FBI. Their posting of my address and our pictures on their site is not acceptable. Please find my contact information below. I look forward to your reply.

Sincerely, Arturo Vasquez

Never turn off the phone: A new approach to security culture

Friday, November 9th, 2018

Никогда не выключай телефон: новый подход к культуре безопасности

In the 80s, an anarchist who wanted, for example, to burn some building, developed his/her plan and at the same time looked to see if there were no listening devices in his/her house. In the late 90s, the same anarchist turned off the phone and used encrypted traffic on the Internet. In the 2020s, we need to reconsider our strategy, intelligence gathering has improved and we must also take this into account.

To begin with, let’s see how big data analysis is used. To do this, we need to talk about 3 things: metadata, templates and networks. It seems boring and difficult, but I am not a technician, and I will not bore you with technical language, I will make it as simple as possible.

Metadata: In the context of online activity, “content” means “the message you sent”, and “metadata” means “everything except the content”. So, for example, if you send a text about lunch to your friend, the content may be “Let’s go on lunch”, and the metadata may be “Message sent 01/04/2018 11.32 from 0478239055 to 079726823 using Signal”.

This information is recorded by your phone, even if the application encrypts your actual message. Your metadata is very poorly protected by technology and very poorly protected by law. No matter what country you are in, the majority of your metadata is freely available to special services, regardless of whether you are suspected of something.

Templates: Whether you realize this or not, your metadata has a template. If you have daily work, you can have a very consistent pattern, if there is no such work, your template may be more flexible, but you have a template. If someone wants to know the rhythm of your day, they can do it very easily, because your template is in metadata. (more…)

Library.Anarhija.Net — (not so) new anarchist project [en]

Tuesday, November 6th, 2018

ABOUT THIS LIBRARY

lib.anarhija.net

We live in the age of the inflation of the word. Its presence is so ubiquitous, its quantity is so overwhelming that its value tends to be zero, carrying no meaning. Technology has made publishing easy and inflated. The idea this library is built upon is not to collect everything coming out from the internet, but instead to save from this deluge meaningful, purposeful, useful texts, texts with live ideas, texts which could be printed and which wouldn’t feel off on the tables of an anarchist distribution. The outcome of this endeavour is still unclear.

This project was forked from theanarchistlibrary.org by some substantial contributors embarrassed by what is being published there. The archive has been cleaned up, new texts are being added, the mess of topics sorted out as much as possible. (more…)

Italy : A few clarifications concerning a Key-logger installed in my computer by Somma Gioacchino (RadioAzione)

Wednesday, October 10th, 2018

For recent report about Operation Scripta Manent, see this important article translated into English by Act for Freedom Now!

Recently, as I was reading the report on the hearings of the trial that we are facing following the Turin investigation “Scripta Manent”, staged by prosecutor Roberto Sparagna, I noticed an explanation regarding the keylogger (or Agent Elena, as the miserable Naples ROS called it).

A text that appears in some sites says that a keylogger was allegedly used to intercept off-line comments during RadioAzione live recordings. That would be nice, but unfortunately the reality is different.
The keylogger was a proper bug, sent to my PC via internet through a virus, and it was capable of intercepting everything around my computer. It was sufficient for the computer to be connected to the internet and the miserable ones were able to hear all audio nearby (no video because the webcam has always been blocked out).

So, because I have my PC in my bedroom they listened not only to radio off-line comments but even more… everything in fact! (more…)

‘Kronika odporu’ – Chronicle of Resistance (Czech Republic)

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2018

Chronicle of Resistance

For a long time, we hesitated how we would take the word. First of all, we have led discussions that have allowed us to understand what we have. Then we set up this site https://kronika.noblogs.org/ about global anarchist practice. That’s what we missed here, and that makes sense to us.

There are many important topics and we do not have the capacity to do it with everyone. We will try to bring at least some information about attacks, campaigns, projects, communiqués … about living anarchist practices.

In the way, there are state pawns and their fake critics, such as „anarchists“ from academia, leftists, journalists, pacifists and other reformists. We will go against their way. We will be of explaining our attitudes here. No, we do not believe we will change the strength of the arguments of their attitudes. But we want to bring
food for the brains to our comrades. (more…)

AnarchistLibraries.Net

Monday, July 2nd, 2018

Behind every project there is one or more individuals. Fairly large projects don’t grow by themselves. They need love and passion. When there is no more love, it’s time to move on and build something else.

This project, AnarchistLibraries.net, forks off from The Anarchist Library project, and serves as an international platform for anarchist sites focusing on publishing and archiving texts.

I’ve been involved with The Anarchist Library since the very beginning, formatting texts, building the libraries’ software and assisting in the creation of new ones in languages other than English.

When the people based in the United States involved in the library project decided to publish so-called eco-extremist material, despite the objections which were raised, existing problems and divergences came to light. What to publish? Where is the line drawn? Who decides and on what ground? With whom does one want to work? The U.S. group decided that they are the library and they have the final word. (more…)

Reflection – Site down until Spring 2018

Sunday, November 26th, 2017

Anarchist and insurrectionary autonomous counter-information is one more method of subversion aiming at the attack against the dominant paradigm of the existent and it’s attempt to control generalised narratives and perceptions. It is a tool to spread radical and critical ideas which can add to and create campaigns of direct action internationally.

Our project is just another group in an informal network of counter-information and translation where groups can communicate and exchange. Since 12 years we have been running this site where we have added to the anarchist war against the many states and corporations which want to wipe us out.

Understanding that the internet is in the hands of the enemies and one more tool of social control we use their means against them, as just one more method at our disposal, never separating ourselves into just a ‘news-site’ of semi-professionalised activist journalism intending to carve a niche into the ‘movement’.

Statement of anarchist comrade Gioacchino Somma – Start of the “Script Manent” trial (Italy)

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

16/11/2017

To the Court of Turin

Today, as well as for all the future hearings of this trial that sees me accused along with my brothers, sisters, but above all anarchist comrades, I will not give you the satisfaction of seeing my face in a courtroom of this tribunal.

I have never gone to the courtrooms where my funeral was being prepared in the past and I will not do so now!

I am anarchist, individualist, anti-authoritarian and above all I am for the insurrection, which has as one of its primary goals that of destroying places of death like this one and the prisons.

I will not be part of the spectacle set up by a judge who, suffering from hunger cramps, has put himself the payroll of a State that I do not recognize, being a citizen of the world in flight from its borders; I will not be there to listen to his delusions nor wait for the end to hear someone judge me “guilty or innocent.” (more…)

New Counter-Info – Tormentas de Fogo

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

New counter-information site ‘Tormentas de Fogo‘, translating news and articles from Spanish, Portuguese and English:

Letter from anarchist prisoner Marcelo Villarroel Sepúlveda – Chile.

“DESTROY ARGENTINA!”.

COMUNICADO PARA DIFUSÃO DE “BEM-VINDO AO INFERNO: TEXTOS SOBRE A INSURREIÇÃO CONTRA A CÚPULA DO G20 HAMBURGO, 2017”

Essa publicação reúne algumas ofensivas anárquicas dentro e fora das cadeias, contra a desprezível reunião dos vinte chefes de estado mais poderosos do mundo.

Algumas palavras de provocação… Não tão somente…

A energia caótica mantém a chama da anarquia queimando. As ações transcritas nessas linhas são recebidas por nós calorosamente. Todavia estas práticas não se encerram apenas na nossa memória, mas encontram solo fértil em nossas mentes e corações. Portanto não se trata de contemplar o passado, mas vivê-lo intensamente durante o presente.

Uma cronologia para continuar…

A visão transmitida é bastante nítida: nós não esperaremos pela próxima cúpula. Essa publicação celebra a rebelião, procurando manter pulsante a paixão demolidora pela total liberdade.

Da leitura… Até a cumplicidade…
