Solidarity with the Three from the park bench
During the night of 8 July 2019, three of our friends and comrades were arrested and after that several apartments were searched. After the prison examination two of them are now in custody, the third person got released on parole. According to the press, they are accused of preparing an arson attack in connection with the anniversary of the riots against the G20 summit in Hamburg in 2017.
Show solidarity and show them that they are not alone!
If you want to write to them you can send letters:
Karolinenstraße 42 (Hinterhaus)
Keyword “Die Drei von der Parkbank”
We are furious!
Whether guilty or not, solidarity with all those affected by repression!
Freedom for all prisoners!
Burning hearts cannot be locked up!

The Fight for Liebig34 goes further.
The Court hearing for the eviction of our anarcha-queer-feminist housing project will take place on the 20th of September 2019. Padovicz wants to snitch away the house, while the politicians are trying to keep our mouths shut. Both parties are awaiting a final court decision. We do not let any cis-men decide about the future of our anarcha-queer-feminist project, cause simply no one should decide about us, but ourselves.
The last weeks in Nordkiez
Lateley, the presence of cops in our neighbourhood increased massively. Helicopters are flying daily and nightly over our roofs. Multiple police vans drive through our streets and ID-controls become part of everyday normality.
Also, during our self-organized neighbour fest in which a lot of children participated, the cops reacted in an aggressive way, trying to ruin our day. Several persons sympathising with our project, have been arrested and taken into custody. The arrests of these friends were very violent and sexist. Whether it’s about getting a coffee in the morning at the other side of the street or having dinner in front of our house, the cops find ways to intimidate us. The system of state tries to silence us by all means. As a consequence, we face daily confrontation with the cops. However, their provocation is not something we allow to set us back or keep us small. It is something that encourages us to resist.
We are aware that their violent behaviour is purely a reaction on our mobilization in our joint-fight against gentrification, patriarchy and capital. All of this, shows us, that our battle against “the city of the rich and powerful” is effectively starting to worry the establishment.
A glance into our future
It remains important to not let them take away Dorfplatz and the neighbourhood, but to show presence, since we want to shift life and summer to the streets in Berlin. Let us all together. Let us express to Padovicz and everyone else what we think of this court date which we received. Be creative and support us with solidarity actions. Further, it’s fundamental that the focus is not only on the eviction day of Liebig34, but that decentralized actions happen everywhere at any moment.
We won’t be robbed of our desires and conviction when our house will be evicted. The fight against capital and patriarchy is not solely connected to one day or one project. Let’s form rebellious feminist gangs!
We will continue to battle further for a life free of hierarchies, away from patriarchy and capitalism. For a liberated society in which living spaces are no commodities in a consumerist world.

We hate prisons, many of our comrades are held in them, some are tortured, and prisons are at the heart of enforcing the established order. Vinci builds prisons, this vehicle belonged to them, so we wanted to set it on fire. So the train of thought that led to the destruction of the road construction vehicle on June 24 was actually quite simple.

From the urban desert of the danger zone in Friedrichshain we send a signal of our solidarity to Yiannis Dimitrakis, Kostas Sakkas and Dimitra Syrianou. On Monday morning, June 24, we erected a burning barricade on Weidenweg (Street near Rigaer and Liebig) together with a fixed banner (see text on picture). We were waiting with stones to welcome the first patrol car but they needed time to mass up strong forces to enter the area of Rigaer Straße, and we disappeared safe.

“Burn all prisons, with or without walls!” – The call for a Subversive May, as an extension of the proposal for an Anarchist May 1st in Berlin, is understood by us as a call to extend the attack on different levels. We agree with the idea not to confine ourselves to one day but to constantly and unpredictably attack the functioning of existing society and prove that its security is an illusion.
The apparatus of power includes not only the murderers of the State, but also the mercenaries of the private security companies. Securitas vehicles once parked undisturbed in the GESOBAG housing estate where they act as security guards to prevent the intervention of cops during conflicts with tenants or tensions with the property management. Securitas is also engaged in surveillance work in prisons and public spaces worldwide. (more…)

OUR THEORY: communication through PRACTICE. Attack 2
… The battles against Amazon or Google sites: Rightfully, attacks against the infrastructure of the almost daily mentioned „technological attack“ are carried out with a certain regularity. Often the criticism is directed against the always as more extensive perceived surveillance that seems to prevent us increasingly from becoming rebellious.
To counter this, the nightly action becomes a little more thoughtful, secret or even technically sophisticated each time. In the claims of responsibility it is written for the thousandth time why it is legitimate to attack x,y,z, or why an event a has now been followed by action b, as we also did in the first part of this series (https://actforfree.nostate.net/?p=33432).

Berlin, Germany: Attack against an office of the leftist party „Die Linke“ – Solidarity to Squats in Athens and Berlin
Tuesday, May 7th, 2019
Late Saturday evening, May 4, we committed an attack with stones against the store front of the office from Sebastian Schlüsselburg, member of the Committee on Justice and Secret Service, parliamentarian of „Die Linke“ in the district of Berlin-Lichtenberg. Most of its windows were smashed.
This is our direct answer to the latest events for which these political representatives of pure social-darwinism hold responsibility. To be mentioned first is the voting in the parliament of the district (BVV) Lichtenberg for the plans of construction of the stupid waterpark in the Rummelsburg Bay, which is another project for the city of the rich and tourists. This includes the eviction of homeless people, who squatted an area in the bay with their tents. It is clearly visible what role the leftist parties play in this process. After their usual approaches towards the resistance, finally ALL of them voted for the construction. (more…)

As many people might already know, our lease agreement with real estate speculator Padovicz -who owns more than 2,000 properties in Berlin-, expired at the end of 2018. Since then, we have been living without a contract in the Liebig34, love our house as always and are ready to defend it. Padovicz and the Senate won‘t get us out of here either, because this is our house! Today we want to update you about our current situation.
What happened so far:
Almost a year ago, in April 2018, we addressed a letter to our house owner Gijora Padovicz in which we announced our interest to stay „legally“ in our house after 2018. There was no reply. In the summer, city councillor Florian Schmidt asked us to initiate a dialogue with the owner. This brought long discussions: too little what could be expected from it, too much what should have been discarded from our convictions. Nevertheless, the curiosity, the interest in gaining information and the hope in finding ways to keep and save our house, despite all our reservations, led to a meeting between individuals from the Liebig34 and Florian Schmidt. The later offered to organize a meeting with Padovicz, to which we, as a collective agreed to in order to receive direct and concrete information from the owner. (more…)

[B] OUR THEORY: communication through PRACTICE. Attack 1
In “The Autism of the Insurgents“, Alfredo Cospito addresses, among other things, the question of theory formation in declarations of action. Not only recently, but increasingly again, people have referred to each other in their explanations of actions [en]. In the process, theoretical aspects have been and are still being written – even if only to a limited extent in most cases.
The connection between theory and practice is an old, but also always recent problem, which active people will be confronted with over and over again. So why not end the false conflict about the balance between theory and practice once and for all? Why not drive Cospito’s communication via actions to its extreme? Why not simply convey theory in the form of practice with the corresponding explanations?
Theory as practice. To ensure that the people who discuss the practice are the ones who are responsible for it and not some secluded intellectuals who do not get tired of making suggestions without acting practically themselves.
A springboard for these intellectuals far short of any practice who never tire of preaching the need for democratic and “peaceful” reforms in a world of social war is, in 2019, the university. As an introduction to the field of theory as practice, we have selected the Institute for Social Sciences of the Humboldt University Berlin as a place of knowledge production. During the night from the 27th to the 28th of
march we smashed a few windows of the ivory tower of the elite university to make clear that the battle for society will ultimately be fought on the streets and not in the lecture hall.

Liebig34.Restera.Bruyante.Sale. Résistante… et plus que jamais! + Video
Vous l‘avez probablement déja entendu: le bail du squat anarchiste, queer et féministe „Liebig34“ situé à Berlin-Friedrichshain prend fin aujourd‘hui, le 31/12/18. Dès demain, le 01.01.19, le projet est menacé d‘expulsion. Mais juridiquement, avant que nous puissions être expulsé.es, Gijora Padovicz, spéculateur immobilier et propriétaire de notre maison, doit porter plainte contre l‘association et les habitant.es de la Liebig34. Une perquisition pourrait être le premier pas pour vérifier qui sont les habitant.es. Chez nos ami.es de la Rigaer94, on a pu voir à quoi une telle perquisition pourrait ressembler. Le passé a pu montrer encore et encore, que les keufs n‘agissent pas forcément sur une base juridique solide et qu‘ils peuvent expulser des squats dans toute „illégalité“. Donc, tout est possible.

Solidarität mit allen politischen und revolutionären Gefangenen!
DEVRİMCİ TUTSAKLARA ÖZGÜRLÜK!, الحرية للثوار في السجون
Anlässlich des 18.März als „Tag der Pariser Commune“ und „Tag der politischen Gefangenen“ rufen wir zu Solidarität mit den politischen und revolutionären Gefangenen weltweit auf. Viele von ihnen sind seit Jahrzehnten in Haft. Sie befinden sich in Knästen, weil sie gegen Ausbeutung, Unterdrückung, Besatzung und imperialistische Kriege einen organisierten Kampf führen.
Aktivist*innen sind politischen Verfahren ausgesetzt und werden teilweise zu langjährigen Haftstrafen verurteilt, ins Exil oder zur Flucht getrieben, wo sie wiederum verfolgt, angeklagt und eingesperrt werden. Menschen, die in Europa und der BRD ankommen, werden mittels Anti-Terror-Gesetzen, in Deutschland beispielsweise nach §129b StGB, jahrelang eingesperrt. So befinden sich in der BRD dutzende Revolutionär*innen aus der Türkei und Kurdistan in Haft. Die Gefangenen unserer Bewegungen dürfen nicht vergessen werden. (more…)

Berlin: Our propaganda remains the attack: cops are murderers!
No words of justification are necessary for that, what has happened to a cop station in Berlin on the morning of February 27, 2019. All those who were already handcuffed, humiliated by the cops, sexually assaulted, beaten, driven through the streets, jailed, or detained understands our language. Our fire speaks to those who have understood or learned that it is always a danger to life and limb to fall into the hands of the state. Many who were dragged in patrol cars or cop stations did not leave them alive.
We do not hope for justice, nor for more humanistic cops. Instead, we deepen our enemy determination and draw a line that is appropriate to the quality of social conflicts. There is nothing to discuss with the killers and their collaborators. Not even if you present yourself all year round as friends and helpers at their police congress.
Nothing is forgotten and we are not ready to forgive. Instead of celebrating its own role as a victim, it is necessary to organize further attacks against the cops and to disassemble their sense of inviolability step by step.
Part of this we have contributed with our act. The casualness with which the cops and the press deal with the attack on the building on Invalidenstraße belies their losses. As we ignited the used 60 liters of gas under the canopy of the entrance area, the fire could jam under the ceiling and cause considerable damage there, which will remind them for a long time that they need to expect nothing but our hatred.
We greet Loic in the Hamburg prison and all upright prisoners of the social war and promise them to continue to aim at the pigs.
For Ebuka Mama Subek, who was recently murdered in an Athenian police station. For Oury Jalloh, Hans-Jürgen Rose and Mario Bichtemann, who were killed by pigs in Dessauer. For Halim, Carlo, Dennis and Amed!
For the revolutionary revenge!

A principios de julio de 2017 tuvo lugar en Hamburgo la reunión del g20. Representantes de los países dueños de la economía mundial, planeaban durante dos días como seguir manteniendo ese sistema de miseria, explotación y muerte. Manifestaciones, bloqueos, sabotajes, enfrentamientos con las fuerzas del orden, saqueos… (al igual que ataques descentralizados las semanas previas) pretendieron, y lograron durante muchos momentos, interrumpir el normal funcionamiento de esta cumbre.
El 6 de junio, el día que llegaban los políticos, acompañados de sus más de 6000 delegados, seguidos en todo momento por más de 3000 periodistas y protegidos por unos 10000 policías, estaba convocada una manifestación anticapitalista bajo el lema de Welocome to Hell. (more…)

During new years eve in Leipzig, eastern Germany, the night of excess was used to initiate an attack on a target that, up until then, deemed itself as heavily protected and untouchable. Every year for the first half hour of the new year, the
big cities in are covered in thick layers of fog and smog, never ending noises of explosions and masses of people who take over the sidewalks and community spaces to get a good look at the fireworks. The attackers goal was the federal court and the state prosecution. This institution figuratively and literally represents the central organ of the judiciary, this state and its democratic society.
200 meters away from the federal court, a burning barricade blocked the crossroad, so that the group could carry out the attack on the federal court and the neighbouring fraternity Corps Lusatia without any disturbances. Stones broke
through the windows of the fraternity house and paint balls were thrown at the facade. The mobile cameras of the court house were sprayed followed by people jumping the fence and trying to break through the security glass. Fire was set to the front door and the window frame, sadly the insides of the building were left undamaged. In front of the court, another barricade was set ablaze, cars were smashed and burned. The whole street was covered in smoke, released from the
cartridges of the attackers.
A choreography, which led saxonies attorney general to believe in a high level of professionalism behind the attack. He was very quick to announce a new level of left radical violence. Not only did the delinquents attack the state, but the whole society. Nothing that actually hasn‘t been heard before.
Around the new year, several attacks against state property were carried out. For example the arson attack against the district court in Berlin-Wedding and the district court and the district attorneys office in Hamburg in the last week of December 2018. In the first weeks of January there were attacks on the Court Building in the south of Germany, Stuttgart and some days later in Freiburg and against the Court in Göttingen, as an attack against deportations and the racist law regime.
Let‘s continue to target these institutions.
As long as we walk these streets we will try to burn down every court, that people get dragged in front of every day!
