EINE EINZIGE GEWISSENHEIT
Zwei Wochen Mobilität zur Unterstützung von angeklagten Anarchisten und Anarchistinnen
Heute erleben wir eine Verschärfung der Repression, die durch den Gesundheitsnotstand COVID-19 erleichtert wurde, und folglich eines Angriffs gegen alle Formen von Konflikten, einschließlich der anarchistischen Bewegung. In Italien werden bald Hunderte von Genossen und Genossinnen wegen verschiedener repressiver Operationen der Staatsanwaltschaft vor Gericht gestellt: “Op. Scripta Manent”, “Op. Panico”, “Op. Ritrovo”, “Op. Bialystok”, “Op. Lince”, “Op.Renata”, “Op. Scintilla”, “Op. Prometeo”, der Brenner-Prozess, der Prozess wegen des Angriffs auf den Sitz der “Lega Nord” in Treviso.
Industrie- und Finanzlobbys und Repressionsapparate scheinen zu regieren, und der Staat konzentriert sich darauf, die Praktik des direkten Handelns und sogar subversives Denken abzuschaffen. Und so wird die Verbindung von Epidemien mit der kapitalistischen Ausplünderung des Planeten zu einer Prämisse des “Terrorismus”, so wie jede Form der Mobilisierung zu einem “assoziativen Verbrechen” werden kann.
Als der Konflikt die Stärke der Revolte annahm – wie im März in den Gefängnissen – lautete die Antwort des Staates: bewaffnete Überfälle durch Schließer und Carabinieri, systematische Schlägereien und ein Massaker mit dem Tod von 15 Gefangenen.
Die Strafvollzugsverwaltung verbreitet und isoliert revolutionäre und Rebellen in den verschiedenen Kreisen des Gefängnissystems, sie verhindert jeglichen Kontakt zur Außenwelt und die physische Anwesenheit der Angeklagten in den Prozessen mit dem Einsatz von Videokonferenzen. Sie dehnt auf alle Gefangenen einige Inhaftierungspraktiken aus, die das “41 bis” Regime kennzeichnen, einschließlich die Reduzierung der Besuche (und nur mit Plexiglastrennwänden), Zensur der Korrespondenz, Zellensperrung.
Die Staatsanwälte zugleich rekonstruieren die Geschichte der anarchistischen Bewegung, indem sie revolutionäre Praktiken in “akzeptable” und “terroristisch” trennen.
Ein System, das nur soziale, wirtschaftliche und ökologische Katastrophen hervorruft, ist auf Angst gegründet und benutzt jeden Tag mehr und mehr die Sprache des Krieges.
Wir fordern daher eine zweiwöchige Mobilisierung vom 9. bis 24. November.
IN SOLIDARITÄT MIT DEN GENOSSEN, DIE IN ITALIEN VOR GERICHT STEHEN,
GEGEN DIFFERENZIERUNG UND ISOLATION IN DEN KNÄSTEN,
UM DER TOTEN IN DEN GEFÄNGNISSEN ZU GEDENKEN.
UM AUF DIE NEUEN HAFTBEDINGUNGEN UND AUSGANGSSPERREN ZU REAGIEREN.
Damit die Fackel der Revolte niemals erlischt und immer neue Hände bereit sind, sie zu ergreifen.
In einer unsicheren Zeit, für uns, aber auch für die Herren, ist die einzige Gewissheit, dass Widerstand und Gegenangriff richtig sind.
GEGEN KNAST UND FÜR DIE BEFREIUNG ALLER GEFANGENEN.

As mentioned in the article “Some concrete elements on the searches of Berlin and Athens for a criminal association case” (https://kontrapolis.info/586, in german), a GPS tracker and a listening device were found in a vehicle shortly before the searches.
Unfortunately, the cops prevented a quick publication, and this must now be made up for.
These devices were obviously installed by the federal criminal police (BKA) in order to retrieve information on the persons accused in the present “criminal association” proceedings. In general, it is very important not to keep such things to oneself, but to reveal these occult methods.
According to what is currently known, the GPS tracker was installed in august 2019 and the listening device intended for “internal surveillance of a vehicle” during or after september 2019.
The two devices were installed separately, each in one of the front seat headrests.
The headrests were opened and glued back together after the bugs were installed. (more…)

On 5th of November a fire destroyed five patrol cars of the Federal Police and two private cars of the Bundespolizei Station at Tegel Airport. This is the claim:
No judgment without us! Attack on Federal Police for the 3 from the park bench
In Hamburg today, the trial against the three comrades accused of the planned arson (parkbanksolidarity.blackblogs.org) is to end with a verdict. For now almost 15 months two of them are kept in jail and one in supervised “freedom” in hostage- custody of the state. Hostages for the authorities’ enduring belief that by making an example of the few, they can achieve the education of all. In this respect, we too see ourselves in the dock with our comrades in Hamburg, and while the court and public prosecutor’s office were still sleeping the sleep of the self-righteous, we have put our complicity into action.
Defending Militant Practice
When the handcuffs clicked last July, the cops still believed they had finally landed a relevant blow against the militant groups in Hamburg and perhaps even beyond. They were so sure of this that they wanted to share their joy and their files with the press immediately. In the meantime, however, it has become quite quiet on the side of our enemies in this respect, which is probably not least due to the fact that they were once again unable to maintain their initial sovereignty of interpretation even before their own court. However, we do not want to deal with the legal level here – without downplaying the work done there – we would also lack the necessary insight. Instead, we want to talk about why our demands for solidarity – apart from essential things like emotional, social and financial support for those affected – also include carrying out direct actions.

We express our solidarity with the prisoners of the Chilean state, who have already been in preventive isolation for more than 8 months, due to the sanitary measures for the Covid 19 virus. We understand that the authorities are once again using isolation, as a method of repression and torture against those who are held in the dungeons of the capitalism. Using the prohibition of family visits as a punishment for those who have already been sentenced by the laws of the Chilean state-capitalist-prison.
From the other side of the world, we send a warm greeting to those, who resist the scourges of repression and the effects of the Covid 19 pandemic-control, both inside and outside the prison walls.
With fire in our hearts and hands… Here nothing is over, everything continues….
“Until the last bastion of the prison society is destroyed.”
“As long as misery exists, there will be rebellion.”
From the territory dominated by the German capitalist state.
Alemania: Solidaridad sin fronteras con lxs presxs del estado chileno
Expresamos nuestra solidaridad con lxs prisionerxs del estado chileno quienes ya cumplen más de 8 meses de aislamiento preventivo a causa de las medidas sanitarias por el virus Covid 19. Entendemos que el Poder utiliza nuevamente el aislamiento como método represivo y de tortura contra quienes se encuentran recluidos en las mazmorras del capital. Usando la prohibición de recibir visitas de familiares como castigo a quienes ya han ido sentenciados por las leyes del estado-Capital-Prisión chileno.
Desde el otro lado del mundo enviamos un afectuoso saludo a quienes resisten dentro y fuera de los muros de las prisiones los azotes de la represión y los efectos de la pandemia-control Covid 19.
Con fuego en el corazón y en las manos… Aquí nada ha acabado, todo continua….
“Hasta destruir el Último Bastión de la sociedad Carcelaria”.
“Mientras exista miseria, habrá rebelión”.
Desde el territorio dominado por el estado-capital Alemán
Wir solidarisieren uns mit den Gefangenen des chilenischen Staates, die nun schon seit mehr als 8 Monaten der präventiven Isolation aufgrund der Gesundheitsmaßnahmen wegen des COVID 19 Virus ausgesetzt sind.
Die Macht benutzt erneut die Isolation als eine repressive Methode und als Folter gegen diejenigen, die in den Kerkern des Kapitals eingesperrt sind.
Das Verbot von Familienbesuchen wird als Strafe eingesetzt für diejenigen, die bereits durch die Gesetze des chilenischen Staates- Kapitals- Knasts verurteilt worden sind.
Wir schicken herzliche Grüße von der anderen Seite der Welt an diejenigen, die sich innerhalb und außerhalb der Knastmauern den Peitschen der Repression und den Auswirkungen der Pandemie-Kontrollen von COVID 19 widersetzen.
Mit Feuer im Herzen und in den Händen…Der Kampf ist noch lange nicht vorbei, es geht weiter….
“Bis die letzte Bastion der Knastgesellschaft zerstört ist.”
“Solange es Elend gibt, wird es Aufstand geben.”
Aus der Region, die durch den kapitalistischen Staat Deutschland dominiert wird
Wyrażamy solidarność z więzniami stanu Chile, którzy już ponad 8 miesięcy przebywają w prewencyjnej izolacji, w związku z sanitarnymi środkami zapobiegawczymi przed wirusem Covid19.
Widzimy, ze władza po raz kolejny używa izolacji jako metody represji i tortury przeciwko przebywającym w lochach kapitalizmu. Używają zakazu wizyt rodzinnych jako karę przeciw tym, którzy już zostali skazani prawami stanu-kapitalistycznego-więzienia Chile.
Z drugiego końca świata, przesyłamy pozdrwienia do tych, którzy opierają się batom represji oraz kontroli narzuconej pod pretekstem pandemii, zarówno w środku, jak i poza murami więzienia.
Ogień w naszych sercach i rękach. Tutaj nic nie jest skończone, wszystko kontynuuje…
“Aż ostatni bastion więziennego społeczeństwa zostanie zniszczony.”
“Póki istnieje niedola, będzie rebelia.”

Osman Aslan has been in extradition custody in Slovenia since June this year. He was arrested by police officers because of a Red Notice entry at Interpol. The Turkish regime uses this controversial instrument to be able to harass opposition members who have fled Turkey, even after decades.
Aslan is 50 years old and lives with his family in Bergkamen (NRW, Germany). The 50 year old Kurd has an unlimited residence permit. The permit threatens to expire because he has been in Slovenian detention for over six months now. Since his court hearing on July 30th, he has had to wait for a Slovenian court to examine the documents so he can finally return to Germany.
This is not the first case in which the Slovenian authorities have delayed such a process for months. Last year, Ismet Kilic from Duisburg was arrested and detained at the border. After 80 days and massive protests in Germany and Slovenia the persecuted unionist got released from extradition.
Anja Sommerfeld, member of the federal executive board of Rote Hilfe e.V.=:
Hardly a day goes by without reports of repression against opposition members and refugees from Turkey, even across the European Union. Once again we are dealing with a procedure in which the regime in Ankara exploits the means of Interpol searches to pursue and arrest those who think differently. Mr. Aslan has lived in Germany as a political refugee since 1994 and has a regular residence. The responsible authorities in both countries must deal with the matter immediately. The deportation of Mr Aslan to Turkey must be prevented, as he is threatened with political persecution and imprisonment there. He must be released from prison and be allowed to return to Germany.

9 October 2020
It feels incredible to type these words into the keys: The Liebig34 is cleared.
At 7:00 a.m. Robocops started sawing and flexing fences, doors, windows and barricades and at 11:00 a.m. the last inhabitants* of the Liebig34 were dragged out of the rooms.
We are sad. We are crying. We are exhausted. WE ARE ANGRY.
They can‘t imagine the determination they have awakened in us. This act of violence will explode in an act of counter-violence and self-defense. Already so much solidarity has happened in the last nights, months, years and has shown what we are capable of doing. This eviction is a moment of radicalization. We can use it and together we can express our hatred for this shit.
Even if the press, politicians, cops and Nazis are now taking pleasure in our loss, we are turning powerlessness into anger. So many borders have been crossed. We shout NO in your spiteful eats. You can have our house, you will never get our passion. We are so much more than this house – we are anarchists, feminists, queers and antifascists who will now channel their anger and attack capitalist patriarchy to the last.
We call for the demo from 21:00 in Monbijoupark. We call for decentralized actions. Let us experience a wild and chaotic October together!
34 million property damage – we are already well on the way.
Liebig34 lives. Liebig34 fights.

On October 9, the Anarcha-Queer Feminist House Project at Liebig Strasse 34 is to be evacuated. Another eviction that joins a long list of forced evictions and displacement processes of recent years, which are always enforced with all violence and political will, no matter what government. Just like the “Schwarzer Kanal” car park, which resided on the banks of the Spree on Michaelkirchstraße until 2010.
Today, Kreuzberg is the figurehead for marketing strategies to attract nouveau riche and technology companies. And what is still missing there is of course nothing other than luxury apartments and start-up offices. So even this last fallow area of the former car park is disappearing beneath the concrete. Pressure to perform, competition and smart separation are promising. The Elements, as the construction project is called, is being implemented by the Swiss construction company Implenia, which recently achieved some notoriety for its involvement in the new prison building in Basel.
Whoever came up with this name in his or her styled office, whoever is responsible for the construction in the executive suites and political rooms – let them know that we are not forgetting the history that this place actually tells us. Just try to bury it with your diggers, it continues to grow between us and in other places. These are the moments when we discussed at the fire bucket and laughed under trees. Moments when we met in places like these, became rebellious and organized against the monotony and cruelty of the conditions that surround us.
We have no hope in the political theater of parliaments. Politics puts its protective hand over capital and sends its willing henchmen to beat us out of our homes if the law so wishes. There can be no dialogue, because the rulers have long since made it clear where they stand. Innumerable occupations of the last years have been mercilessly cleared away. Tenants are thrown onto the street in the middle of a pandemic, while at the same time there is talk of consideration. There is actually no more dishonest way of doing things.
Well, we will not leave this eviction unanswered either. Because what we are left with is solidarity and the knowledge that we can strike back at any time. Like last night, when we used incendiary devices to torch two excavators at the construction site of “The Elements”. Maybe you should think about the four elements again, fire doesn’t seem to get you very well at least.

The rebellions of misery
“All control systems are based on the punishment/award binomial. When punishments are disproportionate to rewards and when employers no longer have any rewards left, uprisings occur.”
In the second decade of this century, urban revolts are becoming more frequent throughout the global geography, with subtle variations in duration and intensity. Hong Kong, France, Algeria, Iraq, Haiti, Lebanon, Catalonia, Ecuador, Bolivia, Sudan, Chile, Belarus, and now the United States of America, have been the sites of massive protests widely reported in the means of mass domestication. As I have pointed out on other occasions, these demonstrations have very particular motivations that explain them; however, it is indisputable that they all possess an intangible link that serves as a common denominator of most of these mobilizations: the weariness and rage of despair.
Far from the leftist rhetoric that insists against all evidence that “as long as there is misery there will be rebellion”, what has really motivated the recent rebellions has not been “misery” but the conjunction of weariness and despair. These two factors – which drive the nostalgia for the “devil you know” and yearn for the return to the welfare state, to industrial capitalism and to the society of labour – are the causes of the widespread unrest that has led to the global revolt of our days.
It is increasingly axiomatic that “misery” only produces “misery”. That is to say, servitude, begging and even the loss of all dignity. As the proverb goes, “hunger is a bad counsellor”. She is the mother of all those specimens that hang a sign around their neck that says “I will do any work” (even for the SS, as George Steiner reminds us). Therefore, instead of creating rebels and refusers, misery breeds disease, malnutrition, mortality, fear, sexual exploitation, corruption, soldiers, police, informants and voters: human misery.

§129a Investigation in Frankfurt/Main, Germany
17.06.2020, 6.00 a.m., windows break. The residents of the shared flat jump out of the bed because they think Nazis are smashing the windows, but the loud shouts, and hooded people with flashlights leave no room for discussion until all residents of the living community are already in pain on the floor. It takes a while for the excitement to subside and they realize that there are more than twenty Federal Police BFE cops in the little apartment. Others are waiting in the entrance and have positioned themselves around the house. It takes even longer until a search warrant is finally handed out and the lead management is handed over to the investigating BKA. They try to act formally legally correct, their goal is to work legally clean. These are the different sides of the repression, the hooded thugs are supposed to intimidate, the jovial BKA cops collect everything they can get and organize the whole thing.
The accused’s room and common rooms are officially searched, and the rooms of the other residents are filmed.
The search warrant is issued by the Federal Court of Justice (BGH) on January 20th, 2020. They are investigating against the person concerned and at least two other unknown perpetrators for being part of an alleged “terrorist organization”. On New Year’s Eve 2018/2019, they and many others allegedly attacked the BGH branch in Leipzig. DNA finds on clothing and camera recordings are brought forward. The police are looking for certain clothing, communication media, other references to this alleged association. 3 laptops, a USB stick, papers and small items such as a balaclava were confiscated.

Don’t touch Liebig 34!
Eviction date on 09 October 2020
Today, on September 15, we received mail from the bailiff T. Knop.
They threatened to evict Liebig34 on Friday, October 9 at 7 am!
We will not let that happen!
How is it possible that an attempt to evict is being planned even though it is publicly known that a different association than the defendant is present in the rooms?
How is it possible that in times when a second wave of Corona and #StayHome is expected, a home is to be evicted by so many people?
How is it possible that especially now, in times of fascist marches and a shift to the right, a feminist, leftist and queer house project is being attacked so massively?
We are angry but determined.
We will not give up the Liebig 34 without further ado.
Support us in our struggle.
Come to the general assemblies, annoy politicians and homeowners.
Be creative! Let’s make the eviction attempt a disaster!
MORE INFOS WILL COME – WE’LL KEEP YOU UPDATED!

“Bread, Salt, Land and Freedom” can be heard in the streets of all Belarus at present. Everywhere people and our friends have been streaming onto the streets since August 9th. Unusual for a country where activists disappear, are tortured or draconian prison sentences are supposed to suppress any thought of another world. But the population is looking for alternatives and our companions are right in the middle of it:
“We should not forget that anarchists are against not only this presidential election, but against any president in general. The Belarusian people have long known that power corrupts everyone. Lukashenko may be replaced by an opposition politician, who will keep power in the country and continue repression against his own population. We must rise up not to get a new president, but to live without presidents. Decentralization of power should be a key factor in the transition from dictatorship to a free society.“
While the madman from Belarus, self-proclaimed president, congratulates his murderous cop units and symbolically walks through Minsk with a Kalashnikov, the strikes and attacks on these units continue. The fear must be deep-seated of losing power, so he had the Internet turned off, sent the military to fight the demos and his whole family ran through the streets with weapons.
In Berlin, too, we follow the events and were inspired by the attack on the Belarusian embassy in Paris.
We send our greetings and strength to our anarchist friends and all the other rebels in the streets, following the call for international solidarity:
“Support from the outside inspires not only the hearts of anarchists, but also the hearts of everyone on the street.“
For this reason we threw stones and paint bottles at the Belarusian embassy near Treptower Park during the night of August 27. We crossed their disgusting emblem at the gate with an A in a circle.
For a upheaval of the circumstances – until anarchy!
Fear turned into rage, rage into victory!
To all our comrades in revolt, courage, hold on!

Berlin : For the situation of the occupied houses in the north Friedrichshain neighborhood (Germany)
Wednesday, August 5th, 2020
Some information about the new attempt to evict Rigaer94 has already been spread in the last days, here is a summary also with regard to the threatened Liebig34.
Since the last major attack on Rigaer94 in Summer 2016, the coalition of the alleged owner of the house and Berlin Police has lost all legal proceedings. At the same time the „owner“ of Liebig34 was successful in court with his action for eviction. The distance between the two squats is 100 meters and in this area the cops and the image of the city of Berlin suffer a lot of damage. Some call this a lawless area and a danger zone, but here there is a neighborhood based on solidarity and resistance structures. The current legal situation of Rigaer94 is as follows : on 4 floors in the back house a collective lives together, which also runs the bar and meeting point Kadterschmiede. On the ground floor the autonomous youth club Keimzelle squats their rooms. In the front building friends and other parts of the collective live in the flats. Both in the front and in the back we have valid rental contracts for some rooms, some of the rooms, including Kadterschmiede, are occupied. The aim of “Lafone Investment Ltd”, the Police and the Berlin government is to evict us completely from this house, because they hope that this will put an end to the solidarious neighborhood and its constant attacks against them. In addition, the clearing of Liebig34 seems very difficult to them as long as we still exist.
The cops, deputies and the press are staging a campaign that targets individual people in the house and marks the massive doors and the barricades as a problem. We do not know yet if the attack of the cops against our house on the morning of the 9th of July was ordered by the Minister of the Interior or if parts of the police have become independent. In fact they committed the same mistake as in 2016, when they also carried out an operation that was judged illegal by the court. On 9th of July the cops, partly together with an alleged administrator of the owner and a lawyer, searched apartments in the front building, evacuated one apartment and tried to clear another. The cops cited forgery of documents and the injury of an officer as the reasons for the raid. They came with their own 200 forces, a dozen private mercenaries from a security company and construction workers, it was reported that some of them had Combat18 tattoos. They destroyed all doors in the entrance area, some apartment doors and walls and devastated everything they could reach. In the evening they left after our resistance in the house and from the people who showed solidarity outside in the street. (more…)

Solidarity means attack – no eviction remains without response
Today (10/7/2020), as a first response to the raid and evictions in the front building of Rigaer94, we attacked a branch of the Berliner Sparkasse in Lichtenberg with stones and destroyed the windows.
The raid and eviction are the beginning of the planned elimination of various projects in the coming months. In addition to an attack on one of our spaces, yesterday’s raid concerned the extension of the siege in the northern district of Friedrichshshain and the attempt to prepare the framework for the eviction of Liebig34. This will not remain without consequences. With our action we call for
decentralized actions against their plans. We do not want to wait for Day X, the phase of evictions has already begun and we must give a strong, collective response on the streets.
In doing so, we are joining the call of the Koukaki Squats in Athens in order to enter into dialogue with the comrades there who are facing similar challenges. The evacuation of Dervenion56 in Exarchia was the occasion for this international call .
In Greece, since last summer, there has been a general attack on solidarity structures and occupations. In the 12 months of the ND’s reign, more than a dozen occupied houses have already been cleared and barricaded. The right-wing government of New Democracy sees the anarchist movement and its free spaces as its harshest and most dangerous critic.
What is happening in Athens and other Greek cities is an attack on anarchist and autonomous structures, which is taking place in Berlin under different conditions and circumstances, with the threat of eviction of house projects, the suppression of autonomous bars and the siege of the resisting Norkiez in Friedrichshain. The anarchist perspective in the neighborhood struggle also requires international exchange about the methods of our enemies. In societies which generate exploitation and repression and against the servants of capital, we show boundless solidarity with those who choose conflict, creating thereby collective moments.
For self-organization and the occupation of space
Solidarity with Dervenion56, Liebig34 and Rigaer94
