Today at 1pm in Cardiff city centre we held a demonstration in solidarity with the hunger striking members of CCF and their friends and families. We handed out flyers explaining their situation and demands while shouting chants in English and Greek. After the demonstration we hung a banner in the city and scattered flyers from the roof. Strength and complicity to CCF and their friends and relatives.

Wednesday, March 25th, 2015
Anti-Daesh and anti-Assad protestors made an angry demo within the capital of the Daesh capital city, al-Raqqa, in this 26 September 2013 covert footage published March 21 2015. After the demo the terrorist gang enacted reprisals against the demonstrators and their families. At least two people were killed and another two disappeared.
Freedom for the people of al-Raqqa
Battle for Raqqa: Kurdish female and male fighters of YPG, YPJ and Peshmerga forces pushed ISIS back to the gate of their capital in al-Raqqa, as the villages around Kobani were liberated from ISIS including Lafarge Cement Factory. These clips are from a YPG operation between February 17-22, the aim is to cut off the ISIS route from Raqqa to Aleppo. This is the beginning of the end for Daesh/IS.
March 14: Kurdish YPG and YPJ forces attacked ISIS positions around the bridge of Qereqozaq to the south of Kobani, the aim of the Kurdish fighters is to cut ISIS’ route from Raqqa to the Turkish border.
Kurdish YPG/YPJ Fighters liberate Bridge on Euphrates from ISIS
March 16, the Kurdish Female and Male Figures of YPG and YPJ took control of the strategic Qereqozaq Bridge over the Euphrates from ISIS (Islamic State) in Rojava of Kurdistan (Syrian Kurdistan). The Qereqozaq Bridge is around 1.5 km long and 15 m wide and occupies a strategic crossing along the Euphrates connecting the cities of Kobanê and Minbic and it’s a route ISIS uses to get from Raqqa to the Turkish border.

Inter Arma received:
Today in Kadıkoy, we marched in solidarity with prisoners in Greek prisons, who are in hunger strike since 2nd of March and who turn to death fast. During march, we chanted slogans: “Destroy Prisons, Free the Prisoners”, “Wage Slavery System will end with anarchy”, “Greetings to the comrades who are fighting and fallen”, “Insurrection, Revolution, Anarchy”. This action was finished in a peaceful way, but if something come over our comrades, we’ll turn the streets to hell.
Long Live Anarchy!

War against ISIS/Daesh: Kurdish Newroz demo confronts the coward-fascist Anjem Choudary, who is forced off the streets – London (UK)
Sunday, March 22nd, 2015
Yesterday, Kurdish people and their supporters confronted the street presence of Daesh-supporting Islamic-fascists at their protest stall outside a Boots chemist store in High Road, Wood Green in the late afternoon. The Islamists use the stall to promote Sharia Law and the Islamic State. Police came and protected the few fascists from the angry crowd, but quickly the Islamists packed up and left the area. The Kurdish people and their supporters made a procession to their community centre to celebrate their new year of Newroz. There were no arrests.
Video here, with running commentary by some local kids debating the scene who caught the footage on their fone –

On Monday 9 March, there was a demo in Birmingham by the Birmingham Against AstraZeneca crew. Around 25 people over the course of the day joined the protest. This is the first demo against a Skanska office in the UK, Skanska are the builders of the Cambridge AstraZeneca global HQ and animal lab. AstraZeneca uses around 300,000 animals in pointless experiments each year; that’s over 800 animals every single day! 500 leaflets brought by the activists were distributed within the first hour and a half of the protest! Support from the public was overwhelming. Shut down the animal torturers-murderers!
Please do a demo against your local Skanska office, without Skanska no lab can be built. The animals need YOU!
Upcoming demo in Yorkshire against Skanska and AstraZeneca:

6pm @Cardiff Central Police Station on the 24th of March 2015
It has been over five years since we learned that Mark “Marco” Jacobs was not just another anarchist in the south Wales activist scene, but was actually an undercover police officer.
Since then a number of people who were directly effected by his use of sexual relations as an infiltration tactic have taken legal action to attempt to hold the system to account.
Sickeningly South Wales Police and the Metropolitan Police have maintained a “Neither Confirm Nor Deny” defence of all aspects of Officer Jacobs deployment. (more…)

Berkin Elvan was a 15-year-old Turkish boy who was hit in the head by a tear-gas canister fired by a police officer in Istanbul, while the boy was out to buy bread for his family during the June 2013 Gezi park protests in Turkey. He died on March 11, 2014. Widespread demonstrations erupted following Berkin’s death. Gezi park remains heavily monitored by secret police.
We received the following report from DAF of an action taken to commemorate Berkin. In the video you can see and hear small explosives and fireworks being used against the police and to create a rupture in the city. Here is the communique we received:
DAF action for Berkin Elvan
One year ago, murderous police killed our brother Berkin Elvan who was 15 years old. DAF was on the streets in the first year of his murder. We are not afraid of the murderers. We will keep on fighting. Murderous Police, Terrorist State will pay for these massacres.
Berkin is here, We are here!
On the first anniversary of the death of Berkin Elvan, the comrades from LAF (High School Anarchist Action) also opened a banner on the stairs of Gezi Park. On it was written the slogan “Berkin is here”. They poured red paint on the stairs to the Gezi Park, shouting “If the government is thirsty for blood, then take it.” Our 8 comrades were then assaulted, abused and taken into custody, handcuffed from the back.

Update: Protests spreading across immigration detention centres in UK.
Resistance continued yesterday at Harmondsworth and Colnbrook. Over 70 people detained had gathered in the courtyard to continue the protest.
Outside at 9am a group of people made a solidarity demonstration in support of the protests. They could hear people shouting ‘Freedom’ and ‘No Food’. The police were called to the protest and one person was pushed aggressively. Guards and centre managers are asking detainees to go to their rooms and come to talk to the managers one-by-one or in pairs. Detainees have refused and ask the management/staff to come and listen to them in the yard. (more…)

Neither in Sofia nor anywhere…
Last Saturday, February 14, 2015, around 150-200 antifascists demonstrated in Sofia against the annual march in honour of general Hristo Lukov, Nazi collaborator and leading figure of the Bulgarian national-socialism, executed by partisans in 1943.
Fascists from all over Bulgaria take part in the march in memory of Lukov, and previously up to 1,000 people were participating in it. This year, the fascist gathering was attended by 300 invertebrates.
The antifascist demonstration was also directed against the rise of racism observed in Bulgaria in recent years, after the appearance of refugees (from Syria) for the first time in the country. Furthermore, demonstrators chanted slogans against homophobia (in 2008, fascist hooligans killed 25-year-old student Mihail Stoyanov at a park in Sofia because he “looked gay”).
In a display of internationalist antifascist solidarity, also 15-20 comrades from Greece, Romania and the Republic of Macedonia participated in the antifascist march.
