For a few weeks now, almost three billion people have been forced into home detention.
In Italy, as in other parts of the world, the first people who rebelled against the worsening conditions of their survival, the prisoners, have been repressed with dead and wounded.
While science proposes conflicting theses, part of the scientific community states that the quarantine period, although in alternating phases, will last at least until next year.
The state, however, has already chosen which truth to propagate to justify the measures taken. Forced isolation at home is being prolonged, the only proposal-constriction made to the population is to obey and wait by watching and self-surveillance… but for how long?
For now the end of the measures has been postponed until April 13th, but most likely there will be further extensions…
April 25th is the feast of liberation. Liberation not only from Nazi-Fascism, but from all forms of oppression.
The oppression of living in a world where movements are continuously controlled and monitored, with checkpoints, soldiers everywhere, drones, cameras, electronic bracelets.
The oppression of being individually considered as infected if we do not respect the laws and think that socializing and the possibility of going out are not transferable in exchange for the security of survival.
The oppression of living in terror of the invisible, because the problem is not the virus, but the ecological and social conditions in which it spreads. (more…)
Berlin, Deutschland: Soli-Demo – “Schulter an Schulter in Solidarität mit den politischen Gefangenen”
Friday, March 13th, 2020
PDF: Flyer – Berlin
Kundgebung am Sonntag, den 22. März 2020
um 15 Uhr auf dem Hermannplatz
Anlässlich des 18.März als „Tag der Pariser Commune“ und „Tag der politischen Gefangenen“ rufen wir zu Solidarität mit den politischen und revolutionären Gefangenen weltweit auf.
Viele von ihnen sind seit Jahrzehnten in Haft. Sie befinden sich in Knästen, weil sie gegen Ausbeutung, Unterdrückung, Besatzung und imperialistische Kriege einen organisierten Kampf führen. Aktivist*innen sind politischen Verfahren ausgesetzt und werden teilweise zu langjährigen Haftstrafen verurteilt, ins Exil oder zur Flucht getrieben, wo sie wiederum verfolgt, angeklagt und eingesperrt werden. Menschen, die in Europa und der BRD ankommen, werden mittels Anti-Terror-Gesetzen, in Deutschland beispielsweise nach §129b StGB, jahrelang eingesperrt. So befinden sich in der BRD dutzende Revolutionär*innen aus der Türkei und Kurdistan in Haft.

CONVOCATORIA POR UN MARZO SUBVERSIVO, ANARCOFEMINISTA Y DISIDENTE
La sociedad está estructurada desde diversas cadenas de opresión que se cruzan y entrecruzan, entendemos que solamente la confrontación radical es capaz de acabar con cada una de ellas. Estas pesadas cadenas tienen al patriarcado como una de sus bases principales, por lo cual hacemos un llamado a levantar un marzo subversivo, anarcofeminista y disidente. Históricamente ha sido un mes combativo y pretendemos que lo siga siendo.
La destrucción de la autoridad en sus múltiples dimensiones no puede ir alejada del cuestionamiento y enfrentamiento constante a la dominación machista, en sus formas y conductas, por eso no vemos el enfrentamiento contra el patriarcado como una lucha parcial.
Somos críticxs con las posturas hegemónicas del feminismo social demócrata, que margina y excluye a las sexualidades y cuerpxs no normados. Los géneros son construcciones sociales impuestos de los cuales no nos interesa ser parte, apelamos a una deconstrucción completa de nuestras maneras de vernos y relacionarnos… sin reglas de lo que queramos ser.

Let’s make March the hottest month in history!
Urgent Call to Anarchic Action:
As ANARCHIC WARRIORS IN THE FIGHT AGAINST PATRIARCHY, we call all our comrades to be present in the fight in the streets next Sunday 8th March and let’s extend the insurrection throughout the month of March: In one day there is not enough room for all our fury! We will go out again with our anti-systemic rage and hope to spread fury again within the numb sectors of the so-called “feminist movement”. This is a war and we are prepared for war. We know that since the heights of power prepare the repression of the protest. But we are not intimidated, we will turn the protest into a widespread insurrection.
In his morning circus-mass, the peje-ganzo-poop-president every day starts the massive media machine and tries to impose a change of reality to ensure public opinion and be able to repress at ease.
First, he accused the anarchists of being “conservatives”, and now he extends the title to the so-called “feminist movement”. He accuses that there is a “black hand” in the struggle for the destruction of patriarchy. Saying what lies behind our rage because they rape us and kill us, is the right hand of fascism.
This reversal of roles is the script of the change of reality that they try to impose from Power. Again he thinks that he grabs us with the assholes but he doesn’t fool us. We know who are the true conservatives and fascists. All government is of a Conservative and fascist nature.
In its Fourth Transformation, examples of conservatism abound… The alliance between evangelical fascism and the retro-Bolshevik left is the main test of the union of misogynist dogs.
The morning message of Christian morality and its call to strengthen the Mexican hetero-patriarchal family is the evidence. Family structures which are hetero-patriarchal are the basis of the State (sacred or secular) and the continuity of patriarchy.
As we have expressed before: We are aware of the presence in the national palace of a misogynist and sexist, pro-life, ultra-conservative and evangelical fascist who has been an ally of the left in its constant opportunism to “take power” at all costs.
They can fool the good people (happy, content and ignorant) but us, NEVER. That’s why we will not put a limit on the revolt.
We will continue releasing the subway turnstiles throughout March, inviting individual and collective disobedience, spreading the fury…
We do not want dialogue or new laws: we want to burst the system of hetero-patriarchal domination. And we will do it with all our creativity, like Mrs. Yakul, teaching us about the Chilean insurrectionists, not with drums and choreographies but with the stone and the molotov.
The struggle has reached a decisive turning point: let’s extend the revolt.
Let the sky explode with the chambermaid God and everything!
Let’s destroy everything that dominates us!
The Insurgentes subway square will be the Plaza de Las Insurgentes!
If one day we do not return home: Do not light candles, light barricades!
Neither God, nor State, nor Master, nor Husband!
The State-Capital, with AMLO or without AMLO [Mexican President], Patriarchy is what weaves!
Let’s destroy everything that dominates and conditions us!
Anarchic solidarity with all the comrades and fellow prisoners around the world!
Against the patriarchal civilization!
For the control of our own lives!
For the destruction of gender!
For the insurrectional anarchic tension!
Fire to all that exists!

Tiocfaidh ár lá – Our Day Will Come
On Saturday the 22nd of February there was a protest held outside the Russian embassy in Dublin, Ireland in solidarity with anarchists and anti-fascists being persecuted by the Russian state. On the 10th of February, as part of “The Network” show trials and ongoing repression since 2017, seven anarchists were convicted on fabricated lies created by the Federal Security Services (FSB) the successors and continuity of KGB. Dimitry Pchelintsev received 18 years, Ilya Shakursky 16 years, Arman Sagynbaev 6 years, Andrei Chernov 14 years, Vasily Kuksov 9 years, Mikhail Kulkov 10 years and Maxim Ivankin 13 years imprisonment. The main “evidence” used against the seven were:
1) “Confessions” that were tortured out of the accused. Torture, which includes beatings, sleep deprivation and what could only be described as sexual assault from electric shocks to bodily parts.
2) Materials planted in the homes of the accused. From the very start of the trial and throughout, the defence for the accused attempted to have the “confessions” thrown out of the trial as evidence. The court refused. Its clear the state had them guilty before they were even arrested!
At the Russian embassy in Dublin the police were there before our arrival. Throughout the protest embassy staff continuously came out to take pictures of us.
The repression and tactics used by the Russian state are nothing new. Throughout the world, states fabricate “evidence” to remove anyone deemed as a danger to the power of the state.
In Ireland this can be seen in recent years with the case of the Craigavon 2, who the British state blamed on killing a cop in Craigavon, Armagh. The only evidence the state used against the two was a statement made by an individual whose father came out publicly calling his son a liar and in the trial the same witness contradicted himself. The rest of the evidence was circumstantial. The British intelligence service even had a tracking device on the car of one of the accused on the night of the shooting, which the data on the device mysteriously went missing. The Craigavon Two are still in jail doing life.
Also in Ireland in the last few days a republican Paul McIntyre was arrested and charged with the murder of journalist Lyra Mckee who was shot dead in Derry during a riot that erupted after a series of police raids on homes. The police have publicly said they have no evidence linking Paul McIntyre to the killing other than picking up shell casings. This is yet another new case of repression by the British state against their political enemy.
We send our solidarity to our comrades in Russia as well as across the world and to all those fighting oppression and being persecuted.
YOUR TORTURE WILL NOT KILL OUR IDEAS!

On Friday 24.01 around 4.00 a.m, the cops of the police station 51 (Wedekindwache), raided the flat of Maria P. on Grünberger Straße 46, after her flatmate’s phone call, and shot her dead. Police reports and its careful reproduction through mass media profile Maria as a mentally ill person attacking the cops with a knife. At the same time the state, police and the mass media are targeting persons with mental health issues, suggesting that this ‘diagnosis’ is enough for their potential execution.
The day after the murder, people gathered in solidarity and started a spontaneous demo in Maria’s neighbourhood. This demo was attacked by the cops, completing in this way the image of zero tolerance while actively defending the provocative statements of the police union (GdP) and the public prosecutor’s office which said that they are currently assuming that their colleagues have behaved correctly.
Berlin is a city based on the alternative tourism industry and a facade of diversity tolerance, promoting a progressive city image, which offers as products, ideas such as antiracism, antisexism and veganism/vegetarianism without hesitating to rely on the ‘friendly’ police forces (da für dich) to ensure citizen’s peace and security when needed.

France. France. Strikes, blockades, sabotage, actions and demonstrations, France moves. Like a breath of giletjaunization.
Compilation of resistance in progress
The rage is infinite. Every day, a blow, a strike, a revolt in the country. In order that the many initiatives do not fall into oblivion, and to give an account of the social situation, here is an attempt to compile the strikes and actions that have been taking place in France since December 5th:
RAILWAY: RATP (public transport in Paris, Enough 14) strikes for 45 consecutive days; Paris virtually paralysed during public holidays. Daily blockades of bus stations, often suppressed. A strike at the SNCF lasting several weeks, the like of which has never been seen before. Railway workers multiplying the actions all over the country. The strike was “interrupted” on January 20th to forcus on blockades. On December 5, the Paris-Lyon-Marseille TGV line was sabotaged. At the end of December, traffic on the lines in eastern France was considerably slowed down by bang signals. Several stations were attacked by protestors, particularly in Savenay, Bordeaux and Paris.

On the night of New Year’s Eve on December 31, 2019, about 200 people took to the streets of Bern under the motto “Remain ungovernable – no law will stop us”. It was a first attempt to organize a New Year’s Eve demonstration in Bern. We wanted to make consistently and from the beginning of the new year clear that a new police law cannot intimidate us. Regarding the demo we would like to draw a self-critical conclusion. For example, fireworks were partly handled negligently. We also wanted a colourful and varied appearance, which we tried to achieve with colourful masks.
We marched through Bern in a solemn and militant mood. Numerous actions set further accents to the demo. A review of the year was shown on Bundesplatz. In addition, numerous signposts to the prison were put up. These were supplemented with information texts on various repressive events. On the Waisenhausplatz, where we also started the new year, we made a longer stop. There we remembered “Kilu” who lost his life at the Waisenhaus police station. We also drew attention to the unknown persons who died in the prison system. (more…)

From Anarchists Worldwide:
Athens, Greece: The Greek government has gone into war with anarchists and anti authoritarians, following the end of a 15 days ultimatum issued by the Ministry of “Public Order”, towards the dozens of political and refugee squats across Greece (some of them more than 30 years old), threatening them with violent evictions by the riot police and police special forces, if they did not evacuate within the deadline. The deadline ended on Thursday night on the 5th of December 2019, a political decision by the Greek State aiming to agitate and create an “explosive atmosphere”.
Following the first wave of attacks and evictions, mainly against squats housing refugees during the fall, the second wave of attacks has just begun, this time against political squats and social centers. Coinciding with the arrest of antifascists and the proposed judicial acquittal of Neo Nazi leaders in the Golden Dawn trial, the right wing Greek government and its self proclaimed socialist Minister of Public Order have proceeded with the eviction of “Kouvelou Mansion” Squat in Marousi, Athens on Tuesday 17 December, while another three squats have been evicted today December 18th, in Koukaki, Athens, following a massive police operation, that terrorized a whole neighborhood with police brutality, attacking people living in adjoining houses that were no squats. Brutal images of Greek SWAT policemen having their boots on people’s heads on the ground and a mother bound on the floor of her terrace with a hood on her head, reminiscing of Abu Ghraib torture images, have been circulated in the media.
While this info text is being written it has become known that at about 22:00 today 18 December, people attacked shops and banks near the main square of Athens at Syntagma, while also the Christmas tree at Exarcheia Square in Athens has been set on fire [Note from Anarchists Worldwide: see second video]. While the Greek government has proclaimed that more than 20 squats, just in Athens, will be violently evicted until the end of 2019, the police attacks seems like the match that will put fire in an already explosive situation during Christmas and New Year’s festivities.

From ABC NYC:
This is a call for a raucous night of strong solidarity with those imprisoned by the state on one of the noisiest nights of the year. On New Year’s Eve gather your crew, collective, community, organization, or just yourself and come together to raise a racket and remind those on the inside that they are not alone.
Internationally, noise demonstrations outside of prisons are a way to remember those who are held captive by the state and a way to show solidarity with imprisoned comrades and loved ones. We come together to break the loneliness and isolation. (more…)
Athens: Over 10,000 on Demo to Commemorate Alexis – Tear Gas and Police Brutality in Exarcheia (Greece)
Tuesday, December 10th, 2019
Here is a short report from last weekend in Athens, where a lot of things happened. On one hand the ultimatum of the government ended, according to which all squatters should leave the buildings until December 5th, and on December 6th the anniversary of the death of Alexis, who was shot by a cop in Exarchia in 2008 at the age of 15.
So we started on Thursday, December 5th with a demo of about 3000 people, all in black, many masked, helmets, wooden clubs, gas masks, the usual program. The demo went a round through the northern city centre with very loud shouts, among other things “All Greece hates the police” or “war against war”, as a synonym for the fact that we are in a state of war, which now can only be answered with militancy. The demo passed the parliament, there were 63 Riot-Cops with gas masks standing around relatively bored, and it would have been easy for the demo to cause some trouble. But the demo remained peaceful, moved on to Exarcheia and simply dissolved there. Parallel to the demo, some people prepared a nice answer to the ultimatum: Instead of evacuating all buildings as demanded (in the greater Athens area alone that would be at least 46), 15 new buildings were symbolically occupied, one for each ultimatum day. Banners were placed and the situation of vacancy was pointed out, especially to migrants to use these buildings, with the support of the movement. Both the demonstration and the “house liberation” were kept silent by mainstream media, which is why the population barely noticed anything. (In the greater Athens area, by the way, countless buildings are currently empty!) (more…)

New blog launched as the response to the COP25 summit is underway. This blog serves to encourage people to participate in the protests, questioning and pointing to the real leaders of the destruction of the earth. Those leaders will sit these days to make decisions about the destiny of the world, promising to fulfill agreements that they have all breached since all this time and driving us at their pace towards disaster.
We cannot leave the future, if it exists, in the hands of these miserable deceivers!
Let’s confront them, so “that they can’t say we didn’t do anything”.

December 2nd, the rulers of the world are coming to Madrid. Some of the biggest murderers of this planet, of the biggest responsible of its devastation. They come to fill their mouths and calendars with the next plans of “fight against climate change”. While global capitalism continues intact and most of the CO2 emissions emanate from industrial production, while their companies keep devastating forests and mountains to extract its natural resources.
And if that wasn’t enough, at the same time, Chile burns and their streets are still covered by the ammunition caps from the security forces. But Piñera couldn’t see his political planning disturbed by the revolt, he couldn’t admit the mediatic focus questioning his dictation before such a social explosion. And thanks to the kindness of Spanish government, now he will be able to continue with his plans without getting disheveled.
But in Chile, normality couldn’t be held anymore, and we neither want to hold it here. We won’t allow the world leaders meet to design the destruction under the look of sustainability and respect, as if everything continues to go normally. As if they haven’t been destroying all this time, as if they wouldn’t carry thousands of corpses in their backs. We won’t give them such legitimacy. Also, because we know, that the best way to show solidarity with the rebels is nothing but extend the revolt. Like in Hamburg, we want this summit to become hell.
Therefore, we encourage the system enemies to meet in Madrid, in the dates when the world owners have their appointment in this city. Stay aware to the next calls and infos. There will be enabled spaces to host those coming from other places.
On the other hand, neither do we trust that politics gestated in parliaments and offices will stop the destruction or stop the way to the collapse, that is increasingly inevitable. But we trust in the ability of every one to act, individually or in groups. That’s why we want to make a call for decentralized action to point the responsible of environmental destruction. Politicians won’t act against the Capitalism interests, but we do. Against climate change; direct action.
Attack those who destroy the Earth.
