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’. The limitations of the counter-information sites have been written about previously by other groups which have changed, evolved and closed their sites and blogs over the last years, each writing their reflections, critique and self-critique.

With this in mind, although we could write more about those years where we have collected experiences and reflections, this will happen at a later date. Periodically we close our site for lesser or greater time to concentrate on other projects, talk and self-critique. This is part of our effort to make ourselves more dangerous and is not a closure. We believe that the proliferation of counter-information projects is the key to the resilience of our struggle, but to remain focused that the war begins and ends with action in the streets of the cities and in the defense of the natural world.

To this end, this site is static until next year.

For now, we affirm our solidarity, although through the minimal means, our words, to the anarchist comrades under repression in the Operation Scripta Manent in Italy, the Anarchist Black Cross, RadioAzione, and complicity to all those who fight the state and the existent, with their words and actions in that territory. Also our hearts are with those who resist in the prisons of Korydallos, Athens, Greece; the imprisoned comrades of armed revolutionary organisations, the anarchist prisoners and all those who rebel.

For the next generation internationalist anarchist urban guerrilla

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…

Tormentas de Fogo

Riseup financial update

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

The news is not good

We hate to be bad news birds, but we need to tell you that Riseup will run out of money next month. We had a number of unexpected hardware failures, lower-than-expected regular donations, and a record year of new Riseup users which puts more financial pressure on us than ever before.

We need your help to keep things going this year, so we are starting a campaign to ask Riseup users to give us just one dollar!

Can you give us a dollar? There are a lot of easy ways to do it:

YPG International – Official information portal for the Rojava Revolution (Kurdistan, Syria)

Friday, July 8th, 2016

Hello friends, comrades, supporters, revolutionaries,

we are glad to present you our new homepage

https://ypginternational.blackblogs.org

YPG International is an official information portal for the Rojava Revolution and People’s Defense Units (YPG) made by YPG. We provide first hand information for everyone who is interested in our struggle, in people’s revolution of Rojava, in Kurdistan and in a democratic Syria. YPG International is the international path to the Rojava Revolution, the official path to support YPG in Rojava.

YPG strives for a democratic, ecologic, and anti-patriarchal system of self-organisation; it takes its power from the people and fight for the people. We struggle to defend the dignity of being a human when there is no one around to defend it and to create an ethico-political society in order to realize ideals of equality, justice, freedom, and self-determination. We wage a war against all forms of fascism and capitalist hegemony that try to enslave the peoples and destroy the nature. We get our inspiration from the philosophy of Abdullah Ocalan whose ideas have become a torch in the jungle of oppression for the poor and the downtrodden; not only in Kurdistan but also in all around the world.

YPG is more than a military force. It is a revolutionary organization that protects the transformation towards the ethico-political society against its external and internal enemies in accordance with the principles of democratic confederalism. So its fundamental mission is to defend the people and the Rojava Revolution. (more…)

Self-proclaimed ‘National Union of Journalists’ complain to anarchist counter-info site Rabble LDN for publishing an article critical of the corporate media (UK)

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

Above: Confronting photographers on a demo in Nantes, France

Recently the whinging trade union clerks of NUJ wrote a hilarious note of complaint responding to a text on Rabble LDN, which is posted below. We add to this amusing incident the recount of the fact that during 2011, in relation to a photo of the riotous smashing of the Bristol Evening Post building, and for which an anarchist comrade still evades an arrest warrant, we received more than one letter of complaint from the NUJ, specifically coinciding with the day of publication of this article about anarchists and the media, written by comrades in Italy. Photographers, journalists, unless comrades and from the circle of anti-info, i.e not for profit, are not friends, they’re inevitable cogs of a spectacle of repressive alienation. We don’t shed any tears for them when we bloc up and get rid of their presence, because we’re getting rid of one tentacle of the corporate enemy. For more articles about the topic, check out “Cops, Pigs, Journalists”: To Inform, To Obey? and The Reasons for a Hostility – About the Mass Media.

A while ago we published an article, sent to us anonymously, entitled “In Defence of Smashing Cameras“. The self-proclaimed (??) National Union of Journalists (NUJ) did not like this article, and sent us the following response:

The NUJ PHOTOGRAPHER’S COUNCIL has responded to an online comment piece urging people to smash media cameras:

“The NUJ is appalled at the recent article on a self-proclaimed anarchist website which advocates the smashing of cameras used to film or photograph protests and demonstrations, if such image making does not meet with the approval of protesters, or if the image makers are not ‘partisans and accomplices in social war’.

“The suggestion to smash cameras of those who are there as media is an incitement to violence and is condemned by the NUJ.

“Our job is to record events. The NUJ condemns all violence against the media, for whatever reason and from whatever source.”

Comment from Rabble:

If we defend ourselves from those who both parasite off our resistance and could send us to jail for it, we are labelled violent. “Violence” is both a selling point for the spectacle-loving media, and then the trump card they use to delegitimise resistance.

In this society, journalists think they have the right to take and publish any pictures they want, without asking for consent, and regardless of any consequences. Few journalists give a flying fuck if their photos or videos become incriminating evidence used to screw up people’s lives as they are separated from their loved ones and psychologically tortured in hellholes called prisons.

But no, like the police, photographers certainly aren’t violent, they’re just ‘doing their job’. Violence is what troublemakers do (poor people, black people, people who have no respect for authority, etc.) Prison, of course, is not violence: it is deserved punishment carried out by legitimate authorities, and necessary to the functioning of society. If you’ve done nothing wrong, you’ve got nothing to hide, right?

So, the journalists’ representatives are incensed about damage to cameras. But they don’t deign to notice the damage done by prison, or consider how photographers may contribute to this as police evidence gatherers.

As we understood the article, it was not calling for attacks on people taking photographs responsibly and respectfully, but referring to the need to protect ourselves against arrogant, dangerous fuckwits who don’t care about anything but their own egos and careers.

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…)

Desde E.T.P: Algunas Palabras de Instinto Salvaje

Saturday, January 2nd, 2016

El proyecto Instinto Salvaje, partió como un espacio de
contrainformación anarquista, nihilista y antiautoritario, apostamos por
la anarquía aquí y ahora. Apostamos por el ataque a toda forma de
dominación y en sus más variadas formas, en este caso con la información
respecto a las acciones, al conocimiento y al proceso de autoeducación
como antagonistas a todo forma de construcción societal que desarrolla
un nuevo Estado de dominación.

Apostamos por la desconstrucción y construcción de conocimiento de
manera colectiva con compañerxs afines y personas ajenas a nuestro
posicionamiento. El abanico de posicionamientos y visiones de la idea
anarquista es muy amplia, por lo cual pensamos que es necesario dar pie
a la discusión y no convertirnos en autómatas o meros reproductores de
discursos y acciones basadas en una afinidad del fetichismo de una
figura antiautoritaria o la pólvora. (more…)

Il Buco – Informazione e Traduzione Anarchica (Italia)

Tuesday, November 24th, 2015

via CNA Italia:

Segnaliamo la pubblicazione di un nuovo blog di informazione e traduzione anarchica,dal loro testo di presentazione:

Il Buco è un nuovo blog di traduzione e diffusione di notizie del mondo anarchico, sarà un blog multilinguistico ed aperto alla più ampia collaborazione.

Il nostro appoggio da sempre va a tutti i prigionieri rinchiusi nelle celle della democrazia di tutto il mondo e a tutti i compagni sparsi su questa terra. Agli anarchici d’azione, ai nostri compagni e fratelli che si muovono tra le tenebre della notte per colpire la falsa tranquillità della borghesia che vuole dominarci.

“IL BUCO” era una botola che scendeva in un sotterraneo in cui si riuniva il movimento Anarchico clandestino di cui fecero parte Pedrini E Lucetti, da qui abbiamo preso il nostro nome, da chi prima di noi ha scelto di lottare per l’Anarchia!

Communique From The Blast! Blog (USA)

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

New site from USA releasing the home addresses and personal info of prison officials, guards, corporate CEO’s etc. Hunt and stalk.

It’s been an exciting few months over here in the battlefield of the blogosphere. We’ve had infos dropped about the home addresses of various public officials, prison employees, and even profiteering CEO’s (Shout out to Ryan Shapiro!) Our presence has caused some squirming on all sides. We thinks that it is completely paramount to ask ourselves why. Why would people who claim to desire the destruction of the prison system and capitalism be uncomfortable with doxing the people who have been doxed on our site? Why would people who seem so secure in their power and moral righteousness feel threatened by the presence of their home addresses on our website? Posted by bona fide punk ass trolls no less? Why would anarchists and jailers share the same opinions? Most importantly: What side are you on? (more…)
