The racists are mobilising nationally to descend on London’s East End but they won’t get to intimidate people and parade their hatred through the streets unopposed. (more…)

From tarcoteca, also see contrainfo:
June 21: All to the street for freedom to the Barcelona 5. On May 15 five anarchists were arrested in their homes in the province of Barcelona. Their crime? Having participated in demonstrations involving altercations and spreading their ideology through Facebook groups. Therefore, they are accused of belonging to a terrorist group, praising terrorism, and recruitment and indoctrination. As proof of their guilt in these crimes, police seized material found in their homes: anarchist flags, libertarian philosophy books, black clothes and rockets and firecrackers, so that we all keep to San Juan [popular party].

Berlin-Kreuzberg salutes the people revolting in Turkey
Everyday since the beginning of the revolt about two weeks ago, people went on the streets in Berlin to show their solidarity with the ongoing fights in Turkey. Another short and wild demonstration took place in the center of Kreuzberg yesterday evening, the 7th of June, where around 50 people marched towards Kottbusser Tor, shouting slogans and lighting fireworks.
Material from a construction site got pulled on the street, so after a short while the traffic was blocked in every direction. The cops, that were making a drugraid at this moment, got attacked with stones, paintbombs and fire. After that the mob dispersed. (more…)

From 4 to 6 PM an info-stall was held at the statue of the Three Smiths in the very center of the city. Main topic of the demonstration was the case against more than 20 people, accused of rioting 6th of May 2012, but information was also provided about the case of Pussy Riot and the cases of four persecuted Moscow antifascists (Alexey Olesinov, Alexey Sutuga, Alyon Volkov and Igor Kharchenko) At 6 PM, the demonstration headed to the Russian embassy, shouting “Free Russian political prisoners” and “Putin out”, as well as the names of around twenty political prisoners (“Free Aleksandra Dukhanina!”, “Free Stepan Zimin!”, “Free Alexey Polikhovich!”, “Free Alexey Gaskarov!” and so on). In front of the demonstration, there was a bilingual banner “Free political prisoners” in Finnish and Russian languages. Altogether, around 50 people joined the demonstration.

“11 June 2013. #J11.
One Common Struggle.
Carnival Against Capitalism.”
London is right at the heart of global capitalism. And the West End of London, including elite areas like Piccadilly, Mayfair and Knightsbridge, is where power and greed are most concentrated. The West End is home to:
* Corporations. Many of the world’s most brutal and polluting companies, including oil and mining giants, arms dealers, and the businesses profiting from cuts and privatisation.
* Vulture funds. Global base of the “hedge fund” and “private equity” industries, laundering the world’s blood money to invest in war, food speculation and debt slavery.
* Tyrants. Government offices, embassies, cultural and commercial fronts of colonial powers and murderous regimes.
* Playground of the mega-rich. Middle Eastern dictators, Russian mafia oligarchs, and home-grown parasites all see London as a “safe” place to hide and spend their loot. (more…)

MITIN SOLIDARIO POR LA LIBERTAD INMEDIATA DEL COMPAÑERO ANARQUISTA MARCOS CAMENISCH !
Nos unimos al llamado internacional de movilizaciones por la liberación del compañero Marco Camenisch! Este 5 de febrero en la embajada Suiza en Bogotá. Col.
Marco se encuentra en prisión ininterrumpidamente desde hace más de 21 años, podría ya disfrutar de la excarcelación anticipada que las leyes del Estado suizo estipulan para quien ha cumplido los 2/3 de la pena a la que fue condenado. Pero en cuanto a Marco, que con coherencia nunca ha bajado la cabeza ante las desigualdades y nocividades de este Sistema, las autoridades suizas quieren mostrarse, cual relojes, más crueles que precisos: Marco debe quedarse en la cárcel.

On February 1st, 2013 at around 20.30pm immigrant street vendors in the neighbourhood of Thissio were chased off by the Athens municipal police who trapped one of the immigrants in a corner just above the rails of the Thissio metro station. When the cops attempted to steal the worker’s merchandise by shoving him, Babakar Ndiaye (38 years old from Senegal) fell onto the subway tracks from a height of 7 meters, where he died instantly.

On the 6th of February we are asking for all anarchists, freethinkers & trouble makers to gather outside the building housing the Egyptian Consulate on 50 Market St, Melbourne CBD at 3:30PM in a show of solidarity for our Egyptian anarchist brothers and sisters who are currently facing serious repression from the religious fascist Morsi and his brutal Muslim Brotherhood backed regime.
The regime’s ‘justice’ apparatus have declared the Black Bloc and anarchists who first made their presence known at protests commemorating the 2nd anniversary of the Egyptian revolution as a ‘terrorist group’ and have ordered that all suspected members be arrested and detained. There have also been calls from religious extremist elements within Egypt for Black Bloc members to be beaten and executed. (more…)

Brixton, London, 31 December 2012
The Gregorian calendar is moving towards the next chapter in the existence of those who mark time in the boredom of ritual …Suddenly they appear out of nowhere, a few people out of step, dressed in black. Unfurling banners, a strange light in their eyes, they unhurriedly conquer the urban high street and proceed towards Brixton prison. Surprise – a spontaneous barrage of recognition – claxons, shouts and clenched fists from passing cars and buses. Precious instants of reciprocated feelings:
FIRE TO THE PRISONS, FUCK THE POLICE!
At last a common language; a spark of life. To then disperse into tiny particles until we meet again. To attract, repulse, embrace and corrupt each other once more… Then the gloomy destination is reached. 800 invisible souls entombed within that monstrous edifice.
A cry into the darkness: Freedom!
Again: Freedom!!! …Response from the bowels of the State cannibal: Freedom!!!
Echoes in the night…Freedom!!!…Freedom!!! Odd fireworks are set off. Some flame-propelled plastic bags respond. At the perimeter the massive gate resists an onslaught of banging and kicking. Wild howls pierce the silence that that building has imposed on the surrounding night for almost 200 years. By the time the custodians of order arrive everyone is on their way. Each with their thoughts… Hearts and consciousness expanding throughout the reaches of the island universe of those who fight to subvert the existent. From inside the prison cells or in the open gulag under invisible stars. In their own way, each one was saying ‘I’m here!’ To the bosses of this world and those who defend their interests: Happy New Fear!

On New Year’s Eve around 30 people turned up outside the gates of Nottingham prison to make some noise and show solidarity with the people being held inside. We toured the perimeter of the fence with a sound-system, banging pots and pans against the side of the fence, chanting and shouting, whilst fireworks were set off and thrown over the walls.
A parent of one of the prisoners had this to say afterwards:
‘‘Thanks very much for doing this. My son says it’s fucking amazing and when he heard the shouting he said it made him smile. Too many working class boys are in prison and it’s all because everything is unequal and the rich ones are taking the piss. But it’s great that you did that and that people inside heard. Love and respect to all of you’’.
This was just one of many prisoner solidarity demos that happened around the world on New Year’s Eve. The prison system is a brutal and violent means of repression and control by the state that needs to be challenged and resisted in our struggle for freedom. Noise demos are just one small way of breaking the isolation that prisoners are subjected to, letting them know that they are not forgotten.
