Home Office immigration enforcement have been targeting the East Street market in Walworth, London SE17, all week, with no less than five raids over previous days. Today they came again at 5PM and snatched one man from a fish shop, presumably accused of working without legal documents.
But this time, things were not going to go so easy for the thugs in blue. After call-outs went out through the local grapevine and also on social media, people from the area including the next door Aylesbury Estate rushed down to the scene. The Home Office snatch van was blockaded and penned in on a side street off the market. The bullies retreated inside the van with their prisoner while it was surrounded by people’s bodies and by makeshift barricades, the tires were let down, and it was pelted with rotten fruit and eggs from the market.

From Bristol Defendant Solidarity:
Police in the UK are allowed to question anyone entering/leaving the country about “terrorism” – without the right to silence. We have spoken to a number of anarchists who have been questioned under these powers, known as “Schedule 7″. Because of a lack of information on the law, most of those stopped have given more information than they had to. This includes people from outside of the UK who have not even heard of “Schedule 7″ before. For this reason, we strongly recommend any anarchists travelling to/from the UK read our briefing beforehand – http://bristolabc.wordpress.com/defendant-solidarity/resources-and-advice/schedule-7/.
If you have been questioned under “Schedule 7″, please contact the Network for Police Monitoring, so they can keep track of how the police are using this power. Website: http://netpol.org; Email: info (at) netpol.org

[Noticias de la Guerra Social]
El 29 de Marzo de 1985 la policía montaba un operativo para aniquilar a Eduardo y Rafael Vergara en el sector de Villa Francia, ambos orgullosos miembros del MIR son acribillados por la policía. Desde esa fecha que se conmemora el día del joven combatiente en recuerdo de todos los rebeldes asesinados a manos de la policía y muertos en combate durante dictadura y democracia.
Hace 30 años que el fuego de la memoria se enciende en los sectores combativos. Rapidamente a lo largo de los años el enfrentamiento se ha extendido a distintas poblaciones de la periferia que buscan atacar a la policía, devolviendo en parte la violencia cotidiana de esta institución de muerte.
En Valparaíso, el 25 de Marzo afuera de la UTFSM encapuchados cortan el transito en camino troncal urbano con barricadas incendiarias lanzando panfletos en conmemoración del joven combatiente. En simultaneo barricadas y enfrentamientos se desatan a las afueras de la Universidad Playa Ancha. (more…)

Inthebellyofthebeast receives & transmits:
A crack was formed in the prison wall during the eviction eve demo on 2nd April for Chiltern House, a building that has been occupied by squatters in solidarity with residents in the near abandoned Aylesbury estate, which is earmarked for demolition by Southwark council. A whole estate that is now surrounded by a wall & patrolled by private security* which is all part of the the forced but also self imposed prison society. As anarchists we see the Southwark council, just as our friends who are occupying the estate do, as part of the wave of gentrification that is sweeping vast parts of the capital urban hell, moulding the cityscape more to authoritarian control, pushing the excluded further to the outer reaches, out of sight, out of mind as they say!
We decided not to be part of the demonstration, instead lying in wait for our moment to attack, which presented itself in an empty cop van on the estate. Our rage was projected through the smashing of the vehicles windows just minutes after the pigs left it all on its own. The cops were attacked because they are just as much the screws of our daily existence in this prison island as any politician and security can be.
We will not wait to be evicted… instead we go on the attack!

THE HUNGER STRIKE OF THE CONSPIRACY OF CELLS OF FIRE WAS VICTORIOUS
Today is a day that a crack in the walls of the imprisoned world around us has opened. After 32 days of hunger strike, the mother of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos and the girlfriend of the latter will soon pass the exit of prison, free again…
32 days of hunger strike, with eight comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire being hospitalized, balancing between life and death. Mihalis found himself in the ICU the last few days, Olga has reached 40 kilos, Panagiotis had an already compromised health from previous surgeries on his head, George P. has a problem with his heart, with his heart-beats reaching 30 and all of them had medical measurements indicating that they lost 15-20% of their initial body weight.
32 days, the hunger strike became a daily, slow torment of death, in order for us not to make truce with the absolute death of emotional blackmail. An insidious blackmail which authority wanted to impose on us by abducting and keeping our relatives as hostages in prison. 32 days of hunger strike, every fading beat of our heart, reminded us of the promise we made together when we met for the last time, “Let’s go, until freedom …”.
After 32 days of hunger strike, the shadow of repression grew pale, the walls of captivity lowered and prison admitted defeat.
This victory is not only the result of the hunger strike of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. It’s a victory of a whole world of solidarity, with arson attacks, occupations, sabotage, marches, gatherings, unexpected interventions, which broke the social peace, turned cities into fields of insurrectional moments and occupied buildings into living labs of subversive situations. In an everyday life where the desire for freedom has been suspended indefinitely, life flooded with little and large gestures of liberation, with fires, with slogans and sparkling eyes of persons who wore hoods.
We are flooded with many thoughts that want to fill with words the corresponding meanings. But now, there is neither a day for celebration, nor for accounts of victory. Today we stop the hunger strike, having beaten the scarecrows of authority who wanted our relatives in prison, BUT at the same time, the hunger strike of the remaining political prisoners, for the overall requests that have been set, continues. The days that follow are critical both for their health and for the total wager of anarchist struggle. Therefore, there is no time neither for relaxing, nor for victory celebrations. The die was cast a long time ago… We, as the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, remain on the ramparts and prepare our counter-attack, supporting the struggle conducted within and outside prison.
Authority and it’s scarecrows should know that every judicial coup, every jail, every moment of oppression, every lie of propaganda, every shade of bourgeois morality will return back to its instigators and owners, with multiple power and vehemence. With the power and vehemence of sabotage, fire, explosion, execution… In war, we answer with war. Time for us to attack first…
STRENGTH AND SOLIDARITY with anarchist comrade Nikos Maziotis. member of R.S., and the Network of Fighting Prisoners
VICTORY TO THE STRUGGLE OF THE HUNGER STRIKE

Statement of FAI/IRF Poetry of fire cell
On Thursday 26th March 2015 we make an arson attack on a police car in Olomouc city. Attack against repressive machinery means fighting for freedom. Because where repression is needed, there is no place for liberty to bloom. There is no place without repression. Repression is an instrument of the state and capital. Repression and authority are the two sides of the same coin. Repression is global. Repression comes from the state as well as from the private sector. It cooperates all around the world. Everyone has met some kind of repression except those who do not want to live their own lives. Those who bow their heads and accept the orders voluntarily. Those who refuse the existing order knows the consequences. Everyone who even only tries to get his unpaid wage by means of direct action, people in a wild strike, people attacking the billboards or people looting during the riots know it. We are happy about every demonstration of insurrection which crosses bonds of legality, but only in case there is no demand of repression against the others. One day people attack the police to fight against taxes, the day after they demand stricter law against homeless people and “unadaptables”, the third day they become homeless themselves and want more money from taxes on social spending, the fourth day they find some job and try to avoid paying taxes again. Conditions in which we live influence our lives, but we must not use them as an excuse. What is the most important are the choices we make. In every situation we can succumb or we can resist.
We, the anarchists, do not let anyone decide about our lives. We feel only pity for people who try to find their path through the sad reality at the expense of the others. They bend their backs in the face of the Existent and make excuses about the objective conditions. We, the anarchist, we fight for a world without repression, without compulsion. Therefore we fight against every kind of repression continuously, regardless if it hits peaceful demonstrations of students on the other side of the world or the criminals in our town. We feel solidarity and sincere affinity with those who fight for destruction of repressive machinery, for anarchy. Rebels, insurrectionists, anarchists, revolutionaries, fighters…
Currently the Greek political prisoners continue their continuous fight against repression. Network of fighting prisoners (NFP), Maziotis, Gournas, members of CCF and many others. All these decided not to give up their fight and to resist repression even in captivity. Our attack is a gesture of solidarity with their fight. And therefore our attack is part of the struggle for anarchy, in the aim of helping the hunger strikers to win their fight.
Fighting against repression is also fighting against militarization. Our act also notes against passing of US army convoy, which will demonstrate its power in our neighborhood. We are not afraid of soldiers and cops, we are scared of society, which lets the elites to commit the worst atrocities, without resistance, obediently. Society of zombies. Our attack and our statement is contribution to Project Phoenix 2015 “Lets destroy Repression”. Project Phoenix is a game. We can play the game or we can finish it every time we want. We can do what we want to do. It is creative game played according to our rules. Everyone can join the game. Everyone can leave the game. When nobody plays the game it will cease to exist. This is part of life. It is only our choice. Some new game will appear sooner or later. Most important is to play according to our rules. The game which arouse passion and joy. It is also a destructive game at the same time. Destructive for the authorities.
Project Phoenix is solidarity praxis and it can be our own combative analysis. To get to know each other in combat. To plan how to aim our guns better against the Existent. This way we connect now and continuously. We connect destructively and creatively. Creative, not because we would like to create something in this society, but because everything which will be created in this society will be used as a tool of oppression unless it is destructive for the Existent.
We keep the new world in our hearts. The world where creativity is not turned into the tool of repression. In the recent world exists only one fight for freedom. A fight which is creative and full of joy for those who do not want to be chained. A fight which is destructive for the chains. There are many ways how to fight for a more beautiful world.
We have also received the messages from the anarchists abroad. First mentions of current anarchists of praxis, R.O. – Revolutionary Struggle, CCF, FAI/FRI, etc. appeared about 3 years ago [in Czech Republic]. Official anarchism, and state and capital try hard to suppress every combative tendency. When we read the information about official movement in Greece, it seems to us, that there is the same situation in our country. The proof is that nobody here informed about the hunger strike till now. Everyone has their own timing but it seems that some calls meet only deaf ears. There can be various reasons. One of them surely is the situation here. Therefore it is important for us to mention briefly the context of anarchism in Czech.

Warsaw: Demo against police violence
A spontaneous demonstration against police violence took place in Warsaw, Poland, on 19th of March. Protest was direct reaction to events that took place few days earlier in Legionowo, Warsaw suburb: police organised hunt for marihuana users. During the arrest, one of the detainees was basically suffocated by a cop, who was trying to stop him from swallowing a bag of pot.
Death of the detainee caused a few days of intense protest- demo on 19th March was first held in Warsaw. It was a reaction against the police statement, full of lies and manipulations, which blames whole situation on the murdered detainee. This secondary victimization and police attempt to cover-up the whole case was the direct impulse to organise protest in the capital. Protest started in front of Prosecutors Office on Brudnowska street, where going to police station was decided. Police was present from the beginning, and after allowing demonstrators to pass almost 2 km decided to start confrontation: all of the protesters were surrounded, then police started checking IDs of the majority of the protesters. Some people were detained and brought to various police stations. Police called all checked protesters to testify in the following days, as suspected of committing the felony – “participating in illegal assembly”. (more…)

To all those still keeping the fire alive, my name is Dante Cano.
I was arrested by the pigs on Friday the 13th, at a march “Against the Police State.” It was an international call-out against militarization of the pigs and police repression towards black lives in so-called “America.”
I was also out there that night for all those killed in racist murders and the killing of a woman that was shot by the Emeryville police outside of Home Depot.
I was violently attacked for supposedly breaking a Men’s Warehouse window. I was tackled and beaten by OPD, then put in a van and taken four to five blocks away. I was then asked if a bat and a black bag was mind. I said, “Fuck no.” Police beat me once more in the van and then took me to jail. (more…)

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…)

Last night, two cops were shot outside Missouri city police station during a demo against police brutality and the killing of Michael Brown, 18-year-old unarmed black man slain by cops last summer. The two cops did not die, but are seriously injured. On Wednesday, Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson announced that he planned to resign after a harsh U.S. Justice Department investigative report about his handling of the police killing last summer of Michael Brown.

Fire to the Prisons #12 is Available Now!
The new issue of Fire to the Prisons is now completed and available online. Check out the new issue, print your own copies, and view past PDFs at our new website: www.firetotheprisons.org
(NOT TO be confused with .com, which is hosted by unknown sources)
Fire to the Prisons is an insurrectionary periodical. It focuses on promoting a revolutionary solidarity between different struggles, prisoners, and existing social tensions that challenge capitalism and the state.
We made 10,000 copies of this issue because we wanted to get them as far and wide as possible. In order to create a publication for free to comrades and the general discontented public, we have forfeited our traditional magazine form and went with a less costly newspaper. We hope to spread this as far as it can go. A lot of blood, sweat, and tears went into this project and we hope that it shows. (more…)

Last week, Nicanor Cortez was arrested for his alleged participation in property destruction in the anti-police riots in Oakland, California, during late November and December. He faces seven counts of felony vandalism and a misdemeanor charge for concealing his face with a mask. Specifically, he is accused of smashing the windows of the Oakland Tribune [newspaper], the police internal affairs division, as well as other businesses.
This is a call for action in solidarity with our captured comrade. When the state captures our comrades we must answer that aggression with unrelenting fire and attack on the bastions of capitalist power. Strike hard wherever you are. Don’t let them take one of us without fury and destruction.
Harness the flame while you still have breath.
