‘Adesso Che Avete Paura’

Friday, June 19th, 2020

ADESSO CHE AVETE PAURA.

E’ sempre più chiaro ormai come il modello economico dominante, sacrifichi alla legge del profitto e della competizione esasperata qualsiasi espressione di libertà individuale, uguaglianza e solidarietà sociale.
Di fronte a tutto ciò, numerosi sono gli scenari di rivolta che esplodono e si ramificano in ogni parte del mondo.
Dal confederalismo democratico curdo, ai territori autonomi zapatisti, da Hong Kong al Chile.

In questi ultimi mesi, il modo in cui la pandemia da Covid è stata gestita ha ulteriormente amplificato e reso evidente la disuguaglianza tra chi il sistema lo subisce e chi pretende di controllarlo.
Questo ha reso più estrema la tensione sociale e il suo potenziale esplosivo.

La morte di George Floyd, di per sé un evento non eccezionale nel contesto della brutalità di un sistema che giornalmente uccide e devasta, vissuto nel momento del lock down globale a causa della pandemia, ha scatenato a livello internazionale un’esplosione di rabbia che si è manifestata in molteplici forme: dall’assedio dei distretti di polizia, ai saccheggi di quei beni a cui molt* non hanno più o non hanno mai avuto la possibilità di accedere, alle grandi manifestazioni di piazza.

Statement from Etniko Bandido about the Anti-Terror Bill and in solidarity to Black Lives Matter (Philippines)

Saturday, June 13th, 2020

#Flush the Terror Bill in the Toilet Bowl #Government is the Real TERRORIST #Abolish Fascist State #In Solidarity to Black Lives Matter

At this moment in time, abuse of power and the dominance by police, military, politician and State itself are became common practices in different parts of world. In the US, the police killed George Floyd in broad daylight with witnesses standing in front of them. The urge to repress the breathing of a human being justify how State’s forces cruel intention towards its people. This kind of killing and violence made by the police, military and authority in uniform in many parts of the world shows how savagery and dangerous in living under this system. In the Philippines alone, more than 20,000 lives lost since 2016 in the so-called War on Drugs instigated by the State. In the history of human kind, you cannot make an assurance living peacefully while at the same time having a police or military in your community because this people are being summoned by the State to suppress and oppress the people, being an authority gives them an entitlement to use their guns in any way possible. It is very clear for an ordinary citizen to see how authority behave, they are not here “to protect and serve”, they are just here to show their power over its people. That’s the very essence of “Authority”. (more…)

Kiev, Ukraine: Criminal Investigations Department Building Petrol-Bombed by the ‘Brave Ones’ Group

Friday, June 12th, 2020

On the night of June 10, 2020 the building of Criminal Investigations Department (Kyiv, 25, Naberezhne highway) was attacked by petrol bomb.

The other day appalling news came from Kagarlyk, Ukraine, where on the night of May 24, police officers assaulted and raped a woman who had been summoned as a witness. The details – policemen put a gas mask on a woman, handcuffed her and shot from their duty weapons above her head – flashed around the nation.

Same kind of news come from the other side of the Dnepr river, where police officers who killed a five-year-old boy in Pereiaslav-Khmelnytskyi were released from prison on bail.

Since the beginning of this quarantine the police flooded the streets of Kyiv. Control and police pressure have increased, unwarranted and unjustified inspections have become more frequent. Like the conduct of the police in Kyiv’s Podol: stop-and-search inspections of passersby under false pretenses, solicitation of bribes, beatings in police stations.

These episodes are merely details of the big puzzle. “Police reforms” remain a complete waste of time, because police is an instrument of violence in the hands of the State. It is criminal per se, all misdeeds of its personnel – simply extreme manifestations of monopoly on violence.

Through our action, we slap the police in the face. We appeal to the society and to every person to join in this endeavour, to not remain indifferent, to organize themselves and to resist actively. People from Minneapolis, USA are setting an example for us – in response to the racist killing of a black man by beastly policeman, they started a real street war against state oppressors and sadists in uniform.

Society can protect itself from both the crime and the police. This requires determination, mutual assistance and self-organization – developing institutions of self-government and peoples militia.

We encourage everyone to act so all atrocities of the police and the State do not remain unpunished!
We’re calling to arms!

Brave Ones

UPDATE: Ukranian mass-media and the police confirmed that the attack on the Criminal Investigations Department of Kyiv had taken place on the night of June 10, 2020. There are reports that fire destroyed at least one office in the building, a few more are badly damaged. Some journalists have managed to ”connect” the attack with Pavel Sheremet murder case.

Video from “Kyiv Operative” shows Kyiv firefighters putting out a fire in Criminal Investigations Department building, which was attacked by anarchists.

Austria: Two cop cars in Vienna go up in flames

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020

Smash the police state!

Vienna. In the night from June 7th to June 8th two cop cars were attacked, flambéed and devitrifyed.
It was a pleasure to demolish these cars.

For us this was an action against repression and harassment.
Against the constant fear of violence by the agents of the state.
Against racist motivated violence and murder.

For us this is an action against the daily swallowing of this reality, against the constant fear.

This time we stroke back. May the act empower us and everyone else in our struggles!

We don’t want the cops and we don’t need them – neither in our city nor anywhere else.
Cops don’t serve our society. They aren’t our friends. They are not neutral because they serve the ruling order, capitalism and the ones who own the goods. Armed with the monopoly of violence they have the right to chase everyone who can’t or won’t obey: the homeless, the youth, punks, people without papers, refugees, migrants, activists, addicts, revolutionaries, …
Examples for the just mentioned institutionalized violence are many – e.g. the climate strikes 2019 (where copes tried to drive over the head of an activist) or the just happened racist murder of George Floyd in the USA.

The biggest thefts are made by rich entrepreneurs, states, banks, housing agencies, mass-farming companies and renters. The ones who get imprisoned are folks who tried to find a way out of their situations.
The cruel violence is started daily by police, military, prisons and border regimes who are legitimized by the state to keep the current local and global hierarchy in place. On the other hand people who act in solidarity with each other, who fight for freedom, for climate protection, against exploitation and oppression are being surveilled and chased as terrorists.
We are sick of being oppressed and harassed and maybe the absence of these cars will prevent some actions from the police!

Corona made once more clear the circumstances under which we are living. The ones who were hit the strongest by the measurements are those who already suffered under “normal circumstances”. Folks had to work even more over-hours, couldn’t pay their rent, got stuck at borders, lost their jobs, got locked up in mass-quarantine or got harassed from cops in parks. This new-gained power was instantly misused against everybody randomly. This is nothing new. It is never safe to be alone with cops!

Everyone has their reasons.
There is no such thing as a good cop.
Let’s solve our problems ourselves instead of calling the police.

For a life in freedom – for a society without police and their cars.

Folks who randomly met, kept 1 m distance and were all wearing face masks.

Solidarity statement with the uprising from Ferguson prisoner Josh Williams (U$A)

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020

#justice4georgefloyd Let’s get this trending once again. Another black man has been taken from us by white racist cops and once again they will see our power. I send my shout out to everybody out there fighting. I say to you: keep it going, the fight is going to get hard but stay in the fight. We are Michael Brown, we are Eric Garner, let’s fight. # I can’t breathe # HANDS UP DON’T SHOOT.

I want to address the nation again and those who are in power as I sit and watch the protest. I call out President Trump on his bullshit ass comment. I say to you: those people who you call thugs, those people who you call criminals, are my people. Those people who are out there and doing what they doing, they doing it out of anger, they acting out of emotion, so calling them thugs is out of the question.

You the thug, Mr. Trump, and if you got a problem with that, I’m at Pacific Missouri Eastern Correctional Center and you can come personally and talk to to me. But calling my people thugs and criminals, watch your fucking mouth when you speak on my people.

If you would do your fucking job and send these bitch ass cops to jail they wouldn’t be out there in the first place.

Second I want to call out the bitch ass cops in the streets of America. I see you and I see what the fuck y’all doing to my people and that shit not gonna fly. I’m telling you this now: KEEP YOUR FUCKING HANDS TO YOUR SELF. DON’T ABUSE ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE PROTESTERS, WHEREVER YOU ARE IN THE WORLD, BECAUSE I AM WATCHING.

To the people out there I say to you: keep up the good fight, y’all are standing y’all ground to the max and I love every bit of what y’all doing. I love everybody out there let me tell y’all: if the police try to hurt you, y’all have a right to defend yourself.

Third. I want to call out that bitch ass cop who push that young lady to the ground. Why don’t you come push me like that… Don’t touch another woman out there, and if you got a problem you can come talk to me. Just set up an interview I’ll be more than willing to accept it.

Send our brother some love and light: Joshua Williams, 1292002, Missouri Eastern Correctional Center, 18701 Old Highway 66, Pacific, MO 63069. Learn more about Josh at: https://www.freejoshwilliams.com/
