Montanaso Lombardo, Italy: Greenhouses of the CREA Research Center Destroyed

Monday, October 29th, 2018

On the night of October 2nd, with the half-moon as an accomplice who discreetly guided our steps without exposing us too much, we entered the property of the CREA Research Center of Montanaso Lombardo (Lombardi). We devastated the institute’s four big greenhouses, destroying almost all of the experimental plants they contain.

It is not surprising that the media have remained silent about this action, despite the serious damage done to their research: indeed, the CREA research centers are under the direct control of the government, who have every interest in concealing the actions that put spanners in the works of their projects.

CREA specializes in the sequencing and genetic engineering of plants and hyper-technological modernization of agriculture and livestock. Their latest research, funded by the government, is focusing on the development of the so-called GMO 2.0.

We will not passively observe the umpteenth project that manipulates the living by annihilating spontaneity in the name of profit. Before leaving, we left some huge slogans inside the greenhouses: “NO BIOTECH”, “NEITHER OLD NOR NEW GMO” and “HAMBACH RESISTS”.

Solidarity with those who fight in defense of the earth against industrial civilization.

Greetings of complicity to the comrades affected by the Scripta Manent and Panic operations.

Anarchists Against the Misery of the Existent

Trial update of eco-anarchists Silvia, Costa & Billy + Week of Agitation against Technoscience (Italy)

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

On January 13, the first hearing of the proceedings against Billy, Silvia and Costa accused of possessing, transporting and receiving stolen explosives and for attempting to sabotage the IBM international nanotechnology research centre in Zurich was held in Turin. Comrades from various parts of Italy were present in court in solidarity.

To support their thesis the prosecution presented two witnesses: Digos inspectors [political police] from Turin who had followed the investigations that began immediately after the comrades arrest in Switzerland. Only one of the two witnesses was cross examined by the prosecution and the defence. Apparently it seems that the trial will be quicker than was said at the beginning, the next hearing was set for March 2 where the prosecutor and lawyers will speak.

For a complete hearing report refer to www.tgmaddalena.it

From the solidarity meetings in view of the trial there was a strong desire to continue a radical critical path and struggle against the technosciences.

From 22 to 28 February there will be a WEEK OF AGITATION throughout Italy against the techno-sciences and the world that produces them. On February 26, a PROTEST AGAINST EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) in front of the EFSA headquarters in Parma, and many initiatives are being planned in various cities of Italy.

Attack against the Alliance for Transgenics by Eco-Extremist Circle of Terrorism & Sabotage (Mexico)

Sunday, December 20th, 2015

Alianza Pro Transgenicos (Alliance for Transgenics) was the victim of two recent bombing attempts. One bomb exploded from a package delivered to one of the alliance’s offices, wounding the organization’s Vice President, engineer Mario Berlanga, and an associate. The other package bomb delivered a day later was not
opened and handed over to Mexican authorities, which are investigating.
No one was seriously injured.

Translated from Por la Anarquia:

Biotechnology, genetic engineering, bioinformatics, economic botany,
agronomy, among other sciences, develop improvements in the research,
production and implementation of technological innovations, supposedly
friendly for the environment; “minimizing the damage” caused to nature,
“reducing pollution” and proposing processes with “less environmental
impact.”
The final purpose of these sciences, using all methods and
techniques at their disposal, is to artificialize natural biological
processes.

Genetically modifying organisms to improve crop quality, in terms of the
land, agriculture being an important part of soil devastation,
destroying wilderness for macro level cultivation, preventing the
slightest sign of regeneration of the natural environment, ensuring good
harvests for at least as long as the lands health lasts. (more…)

Sadie and Exile have been transferred to a re-entry facility (USA)

Friday, May 11th, 2012

From waronsociety:

Update: We just received word that they cannot receive mail at the address we posted. There is no way to send them mail that we know of at this time.

According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, ELF prisoners Sadie and Exile have been transferred to the custody of the Seattle Community Corrections Office after spending more than 6 years in full confinement.

These kind of facilities are half-prisons where the inmates are allowed to go out for work and not much else. (more…)

Call for an escalated Anti-Genetic Engineering Struggle from Silvia, Costa, Billy, and Marco on hunger strike May 1 to 28 (Switzerland)

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

From Culmine, translated by War on Society:

From May 1 to 28 we undertake a new hunger strike on relays of seven days each, as a new joint initiative to provide continuity for the links and relationships already intertwined with other strikes and many initiatives of solidarity and struggles outside of prison, and also in response to attempts by the Swiss Federal Prosecutor and by international repression to denigrate, isolate and stamp out the struggle.

Attempts that will always be in vain in the face of our determination not to break the thread that binds ourselves to you comrades outside but instead continue to weave together, as part of the revolutionary movement, the movement of Earth and Animal Liberation. (more…)
