Athens, Greece: ‘The Future is Already Here’ – 2 Days of Resistance to the Technological Singularity (18-19/11)

Sunday, November 11th, 2018

THE FUTURE IS ALREADY HERE
TWO DAYS OF RESISTANCE TO SINGULARITY

Artificial intelligence, databases, augmented reality, high security cameras, digital ecosystems, drones, smartphones with smart advertisements and smart houses that steal our thoughts and turn them into merchandise, spectacle, suppression.

Surveillance. Order and security.

The laboratory escapes the four walls- the laboratory is the whole planet.

All this is what the yuppie entrepreneurs, academics, CEOs and scientists are shouting timidly but yet outrageously from Silicon Valley to Athens. On the 19th of November at the SingularityU Summit the enthusiasts of the technological dystopia will gather at Megaro Mousikis. Therefore, dystopia is here, dystopia is now. Singularity Summit is a gathering that will teach to the aspiring leaders and future entrepreneurs how they will thrive in an environment of competition and high technology. The foundation for all of this are the biggest multinational database companies in the world that govern the whole planet and reign in Silicon Valley, such as Google, Yahoo and Apple. Their dream is being presented worldwide by various arrogant scientists, such as Peter Diamantis, and is being spread to the elites of the international scene. Last year in Milan, now in Athens. The sponsors of this year’s summit here are Kathimerini and SKAI- we’ve always disliked them and they never miss out on reminding us- and the research center Demokritos, that test on non-human animals.

The future is already here, but us, our thoughts, our fears, our resistances are also here. Nothing is over – the future is still unwritten.

COMMUNIQUE

The State and Capitalism are an inseparable unit of criminals and destroyers. Many bigoted leaders are gathering to consolidate their crimes. Eventually there will be a situation where the workers, the fishermen, the urban poor and all sectors of society who are subjected to oppression will reach a boiling point of anger and disgust.

Capitalism, which is a social relation, has turned the masses of humanity into passive human beings, limiting themselves only to the creation of profit. The purpose of work is to keep the world revolving around society being divided into two classes: the Bourgeoisie and the Proletariat, or more simply put- the oppressor and the oppressed. (more…)

2019 Mobilisation against G7 Summit in Biarritz (France)

Monday, October 8th, 2018

After the magnificent period of resistance around the G20 summit in Hamburg in 2017, after the G7 summit of June 2018 in Quebec – placed under an unparalleled repressive level, with its “free expression zone” – and the G20 summit at Buenos Aires in November / December 2018 promises to be a great moment, given the current popularity of Macri, the history of local struggles, and the animosity of the region towards Trump …

Now the 2017 G7 summit is announced to take place at the end of summer 2019 in Biarritz. We have no illusions about the repressive level that we are entitled to expect from Gérard Collomb. It is clear that this summit will once again be a law enforcement laboratory, as will judicial measures against demonstrators and those who are organizing themselves. (more…)

London: Demo against the far right – Oct 13 (UK)

Saturday, September 15th, 2018

A coalition of groups including London Antifascists have made a call-out for a unity demonstration against the far right Democratic Football Lads Alliance (DFLA). The far right have proved themselves to be a resurgent threat this year, mobilising a 20,000 strong rally in central London in June and have attacked trade unionists, people of colour and left wing bookshops. Left unchecked they are sure to repeat these outrageous attacks.

Antifascists have started to come together to counter this new threat. In July a militant bloc of around 500 antifascists came together to oppose a #FreeTommy demonstration. Look out for ways you can get involved in building a mass antifascist movement in the coming weeks.

If you are in London please save the date and join the demonstration. If you are outside of London consider organising transport for your friends and comrades. Meet up point TBA.

Salatiga: Demo in solidarity with West Papuan struggle (Indonesia)

Freedom for Papua

15 November 2017

Solidarity between various alliances including Libertarian Student Federation (FML), Papuan Student Alliance (AMP) in the small town of Salatiga, at the Satya Wacana Christian University. This solidarity is a nationwide call from the KNPB (National Committee of West Papua) in order to give pressure to the Indonesian government to give rights to West Papuan independence and autonomy. In this case, anarchists and libertarians limited their solidarity for the full autonomy and freedom of West Papua from Indonesian state and not supporting the creation of West Papua as a nation-state.

Anarkis/FML

Salatiga (Jawa Tengah)

Solidaritas antar berbagai aliansi termasuk diantaranya Federasi Mahasiswa Libertarian (FML), Aliansi Mahasiswa Papua (AMP) terjadi di kota kecil Salatiga, tepatnya di Universitas Kristen Satya Wacana. Solidaritas ini merupakan seruan dari KNPB (Komite Nasional Papua Barat) dalam skala nasional untuk menekan pemerintah Indonesia agar memberikan hak untuk menentukan pilihan bangsa Papua Barat. Dalam hal ini, kaum anarkis dan libertarian, membatasi solidaritasnya dalam bentuk otonomi bangsa Papua Barat dan bukannya disintergrasi yang akan menciptakan negara baru lagi.

Demo zum Frauenknast nach rassistischem Übergriff! 28.10. um 18 Uhr S+U Frankfurter Allee

Hallo Genoss*innen,

wir teilen diesen Aufruf für eine Demo am Samstag. Bitte verbreitet ihn weiter und unterstützt die Demonstration. Von Draußen können wir eine solidarische Antwort an die Gefangene senden und dem Knast zeigen, dass das was drinnen passiert nicht unbeobachtet bleibt!

Erklärung Soligruppe Gülaferit zu den Ereignissen am 8.10. in der JVA Lichtenberg

Knapp drei Monate vor der Haftentlassung* unserer Freundin und Genossin Gülaferit lässt das Knastsystem die Situation eskalieren. Die fortwährenden Provokationen und Schikanen gegen Gülaferit gipfeln in einem brutalen Angriff.

Was ist passiert: Bei einem Besuch schilderte uns Gülaferit wie es am 8.10. zu dem Angriff kam. Sie ging in die Zelle einer Mitgefangenen um das permanente Abspielen extrem lauter Musik zu stoppen. Daraufhin ging die Mitgefangene auf sie los und attackierte sie mit Fäusten. Ebenfalls drückte die Mitgefangene Gülaferit mit einem Besenstiel vor dem Hals an die Wand und beschimpfte sie rassistisch. Gülaferit wurde verletzt und musste auf der Krankenstation behandelt werden, sie trug an mehreren Körperstellen Hämatome (Blaue Flecken) davon. (more…)

Kiev, Ukraine: Anarchist Action at the Belarusian Embassy in Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners in Belarus

Monday, September 25th, 2017

On September 23, a group of Kiev anarchists held a picket outside the Belarusian embassy in solidarity with the anarchist prisoners. Activists unfurled a banner that said “DEATH TO THE DICTATOR!” and hung an effigy of Lukashenko on the fence of the embassy. At the moment, the Belarusian regime is holding anarchist comrades Dimitry Polienko and Kirill Alekseev in their dungeons.

We demand the release of all Belarusian political prisoners and express solidarity with their struggle for freedom against the dictatorial regime of Lukashenko. The death of the dictator is the only thing that will give the Belarusian people the opportunity to breathe freely.

Recently we have learned that the diplomats have already protested in connection with our last action. Anarchists will continue to carry out solidarity actions at the Belarusian embassy and violate the tranquility of the diplomatic corps, as long as there are political prisoners in the prisons of Belarus.

Anti-Authoritarian action against Fascism (Philippines)

Monday, September 25th, 2017

Remembering this day Sept.21, one of the horrific and tragic moment happened in the history of the Philippines. Martial Law was declared by President Marcos to suppress and repress most of the people. Rampant violence, forced disappearance, arrest, killings and torture experienced by dissidents and common people who are criticizing the authoritarian regime at that time.

Today, Duterte’s administration was also following the path for being a totalitarian and a fascist by putting people’s lives on his own hands defying constitutional and human rights. Declaring Martial Law in Mindanao and instigating War on Drugs policy by killings thousands of poor people. This regime are misleading the people by their fake news by putting their effort on drug related issue to stop criminality and not confronting the real problem of the society, that social injustice like poverty, no job opportunity, no social welfare, forced displacement are the main cause and this injustices are already violence.

“Not just any meeting” – Against the ‘SingularityU’ Summit (Italy)

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

[September 27, Rho-Milan]

via actforfreedom:

Not just any meeting

27-28 September 2017
SingularityU Italy Summit – RHO

Singularity is a metaphor taken from physics by Ray Kurzweil, founder of Singularity University, to describe the technological process that will come to merge the human with technology. Therefore, the University of Singularity aims to prepare leaders to apply exponential technologies to respond adequately to the anthropological, social, ecological changes that the technologized world requires.
This is an objective that it is carrying out well of course, given that world leading transhumanist executives and researchers come out of it, and that some of them then join the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), one of the most important research universities in the world; the DARPA, a government agency of the US Department of Defence for the development of new military technology; Google; Microsoft, to name but a few…

Surely the fact that it is in Silicon Valley, on a piece of land of the NASA, and being partly financed by Google, is a further confirmation of how much the idea of the world it is proposing is shared with those who create and cause the conditions of the ecological and social disaster we find ourselves in. To this disaster then one would like to find a “solution”, putting something into it.

But there’s nothing to worry about! The thing seems to have been found and is an artificial and robotized thing. In fact through the use of technology is thought to be able to deal with what in this conference they call “the great challenges of humanity”: we are assured of the possibility of a radiant future. A future in response to the fear of death and the desire for immortality, promises of cures for diseases, the absorption of pollutants from the environment, the defeat of poverty and famine.

This fabulous prospect must, however, be bartered and the complete acceptance of this technologized world is being asked in exchange. (more…)
