Widespread Arrests of Anarchists & Radical Left Activists In Egypt

Sunday, September 7th, 2014

Dear Friends

With the last contact we had with Egyptian Anarchists, they are in an emergency situation.

Fascist military regime of Al Sisi / Mubarak more aggressively seeking to arrest all anarchists and any other radical left activists.

According to the fascist government’s newspaper, more than 41,000 people have been arrested. Among them there are: “Alaa Abdel Alfatah” very well known blogger, and “Mahienour El-Massry“, a great woman human rights activist, women’s and workers’ rights activist, and also a Progressive lawyer and campaigner against class society.

These huge numbers of arrest has happened within less than one year!! It was between July 2013 and May 2014.

Repressive military regime continues to arrest all anarchists and any other radical left activists, who were involved in organising any kind of rallies or actions www.trendingdownward.com/med/ against fascist/military regime, who is supported by CIA-Zionism and other bloody
Western powers.

The intensity of the past few days has subsequently put so much pressure into the life of our dear comrades, so that the rest of them have been forced to live hidden and going underground.

We Middle Eastern anarchists are asking for any kind of support and solidarity, even if it is only a wide spread of these news.

Down with military rule of Al Sisi / Mubarak.

!! Abolish the reactionary forces of all religious organizations and religious rulers

!! Destroy all the power of warmongers, including CIA/USA, Zionism, Western powers, Russia and China

For a Free Egypt, Free Middle East and a Free World

Saturday, April 13th, 2013

Everyone, whatever he says, whatever he does, takes part in the class struggle… Either in an active or a passive way… While developing and deepening it or while denying it… As a subject of his own existence or as an object of his survival under the dictatorship of value… In the camp of the proletariat or that of the bourgeoisie… As a human being or as a useful idiot of capital… “The history of all hitherto existing society is the history of class struggles.” (Karl Marx) (more…)

Some disorder news from Belgium… via Hors Service

Monday, February 11th, 2013

Hors Service is an anarchist journal from Brussels. It’s printed in several thousands of copies and distributed in the streets of Brussels. Since a few numbers, it comes out every three weeks. Here’s the translated part of disorder news and attacks of the three latest numbers.

Beyond all borders, long live the revolt – As an echo to the multiple movements of revolt in Egypt against the new power, for freedom and the end of all exploitation, the residence of the Egyptian ambassador, Fatma El Zahraa Ottman, in Brussels was attacked by unknown persons. During the night, the attackers broke the windows, threw paint on the building and started a fire in front of it, escaping before the arrival of the police. The ambassador, the representation of Egyptian power in Belgium, was at home during the attack. (more…)

Revolutionary communists Tridni Valka, “Class War Group”, sent us a message to spread the news that they had translated the text “Egypt like the Sea” into Czech language (English version here). You can visit their blog on http://autistici.org/tridnivalka/. Most of their materials are published in Czech, however many are also in English as well as in French.

Since the beginning of the “Arab spring”, Tridni Valka already published three leaflets in solidarity with the struggles of our brothers and sisters in this region of the capitalist world called the “Middle East”:

Class struggle in Maghreb and Mashrek… Class struggle worldwide… (April 2011 in Czech, English, French, German, Italian);

Greetings to proletarians in struggle in Syria, Egypt, Tunisia… and all over the world! (February 2012 in Czech, English, French, German, Greek, Spanish… and Arabic);

Solidarity with friends of Saleh family arrestees (UK)

Solidarity with friends of Saleh family arrestees.

SUPPORT THE TWO FRIENDS OF THE SALEH FAMILY WRONGLY ARRESTED DURING THE DAWN RAID ON THE FAMILY HOME.
18/02/2013 @ Cardiff Magistrates Court

Friends arrested during dawn raid of family home:

Last October at around 6.30am Mrs Saleh and her two children were woken up by half a dozen UKBA officials and told to prepare themselves for deportation. Mrs Saleh’s daughter and other friends of the family quickly came to the house and video footage of some of these events can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1NXwTOnzp8

Two friends of the family were arrested outside the families home, without being told what they were being arrested for. Later at the station, charges were made up citing obstruction of UKBA officers during their official duty.

The two friends have known the family personally for some time and were well aware of the fear the family faced at the threat of being sent back to Egypt. More on the background of Mrs Saleh’s claim can be found here: http://ncadc.org.uk/blog/2012/10/instead-of-protection-the-saleh-familys-ordeal-continued-in-the-uk

Their court case is on Monday 18th February 9:30am in Cardiff Magistrates court. This is a call out for solidarity with this case and the wider struggle for freedom of movement.

Melbourne February 6th : Solidarity Action For Egyptian Anarchists (Australia)

Friday, February 1st, 2013

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…)

Egypt like the Sea

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

Social revolution is like the sea. Its waves chase one another, crash against the obstacles they encounter, crushing them or backing down. With all the violence of an indomitable rush, they destroy, blow after blow any trace of power, of exploitation and oppression. A first wave, immense and unexpected, swept away the dictatorship of Murabak. A second one put the army that was about to take over power on its knees. A third one is rising today against the new order that the islamists are trying to impose.

The real revolutionary storm does not obey any party, any boss, any power. On the contrary, these are its irreconcilable enemies. They will be swept away as the storm intensifies. Between the social revolution that will subvert any relation based on exploitation and power and the impostors, the bosses, the masters, the political parties, the capitalist and the authoritarians of any shade, there cannot be anything other than struggle til the bitter end. Because freedom and the end of exploitation, imply the destruction of capitalism and of any power. (more…)

Egyptian Anarchist Movement Emerges with Wave of Firebombings and Street Fights

Friday, January 25th, 2013

Update: More fotos & report on Avtonom.org

From Even If Your Shakes via anarchistnews.org

A black bloc marches in Cairo tonight [24/1], preparing for confrontations with security forces near Tahrir Square on the even of the second anniversary of the revolution.

Anarchists have been present in Egypt before, during, and after the revolution, but until today, they have yet to organize a mass grouping under the banner of anarchism. The Ultras of Egypt’s football clubs have for years been associated with anarchist ideas and actions, and they are widely credited with having initiated the level of militancy that brought down the Mubarak government in February of 2011.

War, Catastrophe, Democracy, Prison – We Want Revolution

Sunday, May 1st, 2011

Translated from www.finimondo.org

Text of a leaflet distributed in Brussels (Belgium) in April 2011.

In a time when words seem to lose their meaning, when the language of power tries to penetrate all our conversations, we think it is even more indispensable to make an effort in order to speak clearly. Let’s stop parroting what the newspapers say, television shows and the powerful want us to believe. The point is neither to agree at all costs nor to convert everything, but it is to try to speak with our mouth, our words, our pains and our hopes.

War… or revolution

The beginning of NATO bombardments against the forces loyal to Gaddafi in Libya marked a fatal step. At the beginning, what was undoubtedly an armed insurrection of a significant part of the population against the regime, is slowly transforming into a military war. Apart from some self-organized forms of resistance, which all kinds of authority define as ‘irregular’, the insurrection in Libya seems to have degenerated in a conflict between opposing armies. And it is not by chance that the ‘irregulars’ down there have always been very suspicious towards the ‘official opposition’, which has copied the hierarchies, grades and structures of command of the Gaddafi’s army.
