Berlin: Rigaer94 raided – Another eviction attempt (Germany)

Saturday, July 11th, 2020

Today at 07:00 July 9th, 2020

in the morning, a hundred riot cops walked over the bicycle rack in the yard of Riga 93 to climb over the fence into our yard one by one. At the same time they occupied the roofs of our block. The cops, along with LKA 5 and 6, then gained access to apartments on the 3rd floor of the front building under the pretext of a search for forgery of documents and others. According to the press, they also searched an apartment on Karl-Marx-Allee.

Contrary to their usual procedure, they refrained from using a helicopter and made no attempt to penetrate the rear building so far. In the meantime, they led the worst traffic lawyer in town, Markus Bernau, around the front building, presumably with the intention of supporting him in legal actions against the apartments occupied there. Torsten Luschnat, who thinks he is our new property manager, also gained access to these apartments. The so-called owner company has already proved several times in court that they can’t really prove anything, not even their legality to take legal action against us. The previous court rulings have dismissed all claims. (more…)

Urgent Call for Solidarity: Our Friend Andreas Krebs is Dying (Italy, Germany)

Friday, July 3rd, 2020

Our friend Andreas is dying… (July 2, 2020)

… and everyone is watching. What has been happening to Andreas in jail in Naples for at least a year is a result that both the German and the Italian state are responsible for. In spite of his poor health, Andreas is denied adequate medical care despite promises to the contrary by the hospital management. He is brought to a hospital every hour for questionable or senseless examinations and then back to prison.

Andreas was diagnosed with cancer at least a year ago, it spread all over his body and he had unspeakable pain. He can hardly walk anymore, just eat more baby food, he loses blood and is often unconscious for days. His Italian lawyer is fighting at all levels, but transfer to house arrest has now been refused.

Andreas is doing very badly, suicide seems to be the only way out for him in the current situation.

Both the Italian and the German state know Andreas’ state of health. Nobody lifts a finger, fundamental human rights do not seem to apply to prisoners. What happens here is murder. And every suicide in jail is nothing else, because behind bars there are no free decisions.

We cannot stand by, although we are infinitely sad and angry and have no ideas what to do.

Confront the German and Italian authorities with their inactivity, call the Federal Foreign Office, Boschaft and the consulate.

Down with all prisons! Down with all states!

ABC Vienna, July 2nd, 2020



Notes:

The address to write to him:

Andreas Krebs
Sez.4 /Stz.5

Via Roma Verso Scampia 250
CAP 80144 Napoli (NA)

He has to pay for the urgently needed medication and reasonably usable food himself. If you want to donate money:

‘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.

Chile: Dirti Lepra – Trap, Anarchism & Revolution

Wednesday, May 27th, 2020

The struggle is not only in the streets but in how we represent and inspire each other. In January 2020, the Anarchist Radio Berlin was with Dirti Lepra, a trap artist with whom we talked about why make music for dancing with social critique and revolutionary lyrics, his life experience through music, anarchism and the popular uprising.

Mauricio Morales – 11 years later, Insurrectionists Don’t Forget You

Sunday, May 24th, 2020

It’s been 11 years since your last ride… 11 years… and we were all surprised when it was the first anniversary of your death, Mauri. The years go by, but something always remains, right?

For those of us who knew you and for those of us who knew you after your death, it has been 11 years of having you around, 11 years of continuing to propagate, breaking in, bothering, laughing loudly or in whispers, stubbornly propagating the Black Death.

How much has happened in these years, there is no rational measure that can quantify it. There are those who will say that we have lost, others that we have gained a lot, what is really important is that we continue… and that anarchy, as a concrete practice against any form of domination, as a permanent exercise, continues unrestrained. And that is why our dead people enjoy excellent health and continue to laugh, today already in other laughs.

How much you would have enjoyed the streets in these months, we smile when we imagine the answer, but you were, Mauri, in memorable days, in the chaos and its sweet deliriums. You were there, because there are those who insist on going out with you to the chaos. (more…)

Germany: Against the EU-China Summit in Leipzig

Saturday, May 16th, 2020

From 13 to 15 September, the heads of government of all European countries will meet with the Chinese government in Leipzig. This will not only be about intensifying trade relations. Rather, it will be about building a new global partnership so that the EU is not ousted from the table of the great powers in the future. The deterioration in the EU’s relationship with the USA under Donald Trump has made it necessary to find another partner to coordinate the shaping of its own global interests with the EU. The topics of the summit are therefore not only economic relations, but also foreign and security policy and – unsurprisingly – digitalisation and digital cooperation, as well as climate protection and human rights. The summit is based on strategic position papers which already began in the EU-China 2020 Strategic Agenda for Cooperation from 2013 and have since become increasingly concrete at the annual meetings. This year, not only representatives from China and the EU will meet for the first time, but also all heads of state and government.

Wuppertal, Germany: Autonomous MayDay

Monday, May 11th, 2020

Like last year, the autonomous MayDay was full of surprises! And these surprises have caught the cops off guard and we are happy about that!

It started in the night from 30.04. to 01.05. with a demonstration in the Ölberg district, accompanied by fireworks and other great lights and (sound) effects. On our way through the Elberfelder Nordstadt some neighbours at their windows celebrated with us that the 1st of May has begun. So we were able to start the day in good spirits with strike two under difficult conditions. Already with the first strike last year we could catch the cops on the wrong foot and thus trick the cop apparatus. From that point on, we managed to break through the de facto suspension of the right to demonstrate for a short time. At least for a short period of time we were able to make the darkness glow.

Germany: Broken glass and paint against Wuppertal municipal utility

Sunday, April 26th, 2020

With broken glass and paint in the entrance area of ​​the company headquarters of the local municipal utility “Wuppertaler Stadtwerke” (WSW) on Bromberger Straße, we have underlined our request to the WSW for an immediate power cut.

The WSW have always been brazen. But now the company is going one step further. While more and more large energy companies, such as the ENBW has even reversed gas and electricity barriers due to the corona pandemic, the WSW does nothing. For those affected, this means in the already difficult times, in the evening no light, no electricity or gas for cooking … ..

We will not forget our demand for a general stop of electricity and gas barriers even after the pandemic!

Just as little as the need for an ecologically justifiable energy supply for everyone who needs it for meaningful purposes. So e.g. definitely not for the armaments and automotive industries (the workers would certainly be pleased to produce socially useful products!)

Statistics from the Consumer Advice Center North Rhine-Westphalia from March 23 on the average company margin, i.e. the money with which the companies operate and ultimately make profits, for the basic electricity supply with an annual consumption of 3000 kWh in the period from January 2017 to April 2020 shows that the WSW with 9.03 cents per kWh (the average company range is 8.25 cents per kWh), the fourth highest company range of basic electricity suppliers in the 20 most populous cities in NRW.

Solidarity is fragile – thoughts on the “Network” case from ABC Dresden (Germany / Russia)

Thursday, April 9th, 2020

From ABC Dresden:

Around a month ago before the whole Europe was locked down by the national states, anarchist movement in different parts of the world was shaken by the news from Russia around “Network Case”. Liberal news portal “Meduza” published information that some of the defendants from Penza were involved in murder of two people while they were on the run. This information brought back the topic of how we organize our solidarity and what are the limits of our solidarity. Although we are not located in the region, we have a connection to our comrades in Russia. We organized many solidarity events for those prosecuted under “Network” case in the city of Dresden. For example, an evening at the end of December, where we encouraged people to write to Russian Anarchists and Antifascists in prison.

This text is not an attack on the solidarity campaign or the anarchist movement in Russia. We are writing it to proceed with further discussion – only that way we can learn and avoid repeating the same mistakes as before.

“Network” creation

We think most of the people who are going to read this text already know the history of the case. But we will repeat a short version of it so everybody is on the same page here. (more…)

Saxony, Germany: Double Incendiary Attack Against Prison Construction Companies

Sunday, March 22nd, 2020

An Early Easter Egg on Political Prisoners Day

We, as an early Easter egg, claim responsibility for the fires during the night of 18.03.2020 at two companies involved in the construction of the new Zwickau-Marienthal prison. [1]

Today is the anniversary of the International Day of Political Prisoners. This day was proclaimed to remember the many fighting comrades and comrades-in-arms who are in the dungeons of prisons worldwide. The date is based on the day on which the Paris Commune was proclaimed in 1871. For many people, the Paris Commune was and still is a reference point for revolutionary efforts for social justice and political freedom. The smashing of the Commune, the massacre of thousands of Communards and the deportation of hundreds of them to the penal colonies, where they died a slow death, was intended to show all revolutionaries in the world what a bourgeois government is prepared to do when it sees its power threatened.

Even today thousands of revolutionaries are sitting in the prisons of this world. The emancipatory struggle has been going on since the commune, and its children have come and are still coming under the wheels of repression. There has always been a struggle for the liberation and support of the prisoners. A fundamental critique of domination has been linked to a critique of the prison system and the morality of punishment. The demand for the liberation of the prisoners often turned into a demand to abolish prisons and to overcome the principle of punishment completely. (more…)
