Nachdem es am Donnerstag den 05.06. zu brutalen Übergriffen von Bullen auf einen Protest der Lampedusa Flüchtlinge und Unterstützer_innen auf dem Hamburger Rathausmarkt gekommen war, gingen Freitag Abend hunderte Menschen in St. Pauli auf die Straße.
Eine große unautorisierte Demonstration mit bis zu 1000 Menschen begann gegen 20 Uhr auf dem Neuen Pferdemarkt und ging über das Schulterblatt.
Parolen gegen Staat und Grenzen wurden gegen Häuserwände, Banken und Geschäfte gesprüht, Feuerwerk gezündet und es war laut. (more…)
Berlin: Phoenix Project #11 – Autonomous Cell “Christos Kassimis” takes responsibility for several attacks (Germany)

Phoenix Project: Smoke signals from Berlin
“The fire comes into your cities, into your nights. From our spirit within, we carve its path towards all of you. It will warm our friends with solidarity and will ignite their zest for action. It will turn our enemy into ashes. Imprint us well in your memory. We want your heart. No matter who you are. No matter who I am either. Maybe the Conspiracy will turn both of us into ashes and at the same time fill us with life. What counts is the path we are going, and that we take this path because we have the freedom to choose. This freedom is nothing to be fought for but rather evolves in the mind. What comes afterwards is not freedom but the power over one’s own life. We do not discuss this; this is what we fight for.”(CCF)
Responsibility claim for some arsons of the past weeks in Berlin
On April 8th, 2014 we torched a vehicle of the municipal regulatory authority, and the car of a security company, near the main railway station in Berlin.
Berlin’s municipal regulatory authorities are being tasked by the normal cops to persecute administrative offenses and to keep their eyes and ears open in the everyday life of the metropolis. Small, lousy snoopers equipped with radio transmitter and pepper spray. They work, just like the cops, together with private security companies. At the main railway station, they share a parking lot designated for officials with a security firm right next to a police station.
We also take responsibility for the arson at an embassy vehicle belonging to a Greek female diplomat, on April 24th in Berlin’s district Dahlem, which is filled with villas.
Diplomatic representatives of a State are exactly the right address for fiery mailings; this rubs away their feeling of superiority and invulnerability, same as it happened recently with the German ambassador in Athens, when shots were fired at his house. The State itself is the problem, something which many fighters of sectional struggles do not take into consideration. Nazis are State; armament and nuclear technology are State; climate change and poverty are also State.
With our action we negate the State’s monopoly on violence.
Germany takes a position which promotes repression in regard to the situation of migration policies in Greece. It’s not enough for the German politics that a majority of the refugees who arrive in Greece end up in concentration camps and that they are hunted and killed by Nazis, with or without uniform. The German politicians consider the few ones, who manage to cross the Greek border alive, as a threat to their rich white world. So, for example, the former German Minister of the Interior, Friedrich, demands stronger border controls and tougher action against those who, because of their home’s exploitation by Western societies, are forced to escape war, hunger and repression. The practical support of this mass murder that takes place at European borders is visible to everyone when Germany’s detectives of the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) are stationed in Greek airports, in order to pass their knowledge in Racial Profiling on to their Greek colleagues. The German governmental apparatus has supported the murders at European borders not only by sending personnel but also by pressing towards agreements at the European level, such as the Dublin II regulation.
On August 10th, 2013 a riot broke out in Amygdaleza, a concentration camp which is located 25km north of Athens, where migrants are held captive by the Greek State. The prisoners set their mattresses and cells on fire to protest against the conditions in the camp, guards were attacked, and many migrants tried to break out of the prison —about ten prisoners temporarily escaped.
Solidarity to prisoners
We greet the prisoners Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, Dimitris Politis, Yannis Michailidis, Nikos Romanos, who were arrested on February 1st, 2013, accused of double robbery in Velventos, Kozani.
Our solidarity also goes out to Fivos Harisis, Argyris Ntalios, Yannis Naxakis and Grigoris Sarafoudis, who were arrested for the same case in Nea Filadelfeia, Athens.
Force and strength to our brothers and our sister, Damiano Bolano, Haris Hadjimihelakis, Giorgos Polydoros, Panagiotis Argyrou, Theofilos Mavropoulos, Christos Tsakalos, Giorgos Nikolopoulos, Michalis Nikolopoulos and Olga Ekonomidou.
Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar
Freedom for all prisoners!
In memory of Sebastián Oversluij, who fell in battle against the capitalist system. Freedom for Hermes González and Alfonso Alvial. Freedom for Tamara Sol!
Strength, force and courage to all people who are fighting. For all the migrants that set off to break through Fortress Europe. All those who have fallen. All the unnamed. All those who fight the pigs in the streets of Athens.
Against the construct of borders and nations. Against prisons! For freedom! For anarchy!
Autonomous Cell “Christos Kassimis”
Christos Kassimis [member of the Revolutionary People’s Struggle (ELA)] was killed by cops in Athens, during an attempted attack on the German company AEG on the 20th of October 1977. The action was in response to the murder of prisoners [three members of the RAF] in Stammheim.
Translators’ notes:  we translated the words from German as best we could, however the exact origin of this quotation is unknown to us;  for the case of Velventos, Fivos Harisis and Argyris Ntalios (not all four of them);  apparently the name of Gerasimos Tsakalos was inadvertently omitted.

Ich will hier (aus Mangel an Alternativen) eine Diskussion provozieren, über den Begriff „ziviler Anarchismus“ und in Analogie „zivile Anarchisten“. Zivil hier im Sinne, des zivilisierten, also domestizierten Staatsbürgers.
Keine sozialen Anarchisten, zivile Anarchisten!
Einleitend eine Begriffserklärung. Unter Citoyennisme/Citoyennismus versteht man die Ideologie der Staatsbürger (Citoyens). Definition: 1. Der Glaube, dass Demokratie (Also auch Basis-/Direkte/Radikale,…) dem Kapitalismus entgegenstellt werden kann, 2. die Raffinierung des Staates (oder einer souveränen Struktur), damit diese Politik umgesetzt wird, 3. das Volk, also die Staatsbürger als die aktive Basis der Politik.
Also jene (Staats-)Bürger, die etwas gegen korrupte Politiker haben, aber den Staat eigentlich ganz nice finden oder sich ihm zumindest bedienen. Man kann Phänomene wie die Occupy-Bewegung oder die Indignados darunter fassen. Aber genauso z.b Antifas (die sich freuen, wenn der Staat Naziorganisationen verbietet oder Nazis wegsperrt), (Radikal-)Feministinnen (wenn sie vom Souverän das Recht auf Abtreibung einfordern), oder Antira-Aktivisten (wenn sie vom Souverän das Recht auf Bewegungsfreiheit fordern).

Come to the Opening of the European Central Bank! | Frankfurt Fall 2014
A Call from the Destroika for a Fantastic Convergence of Resistance
From issue-less “days of action” to inconsequential general strikes, the recent struggles in Greece, Spain, Italy, France, and Portugal invariably seem to stumble over the limit of their own national frame of reference. The standpoint of the nation, long considered synonymous with political activity per se, be it that of the State or one or another revolutionary party, has revealed itself as being the very scale of our own collective powerlessness. It is this powerlessness, turned against itself, that fuels the fire of so many nationalist resentments. (more…)

Am 30. Oktober 2013 begann der Prozess gegen die beiden Gefӓhrten Nicola Gai und Alfredo Cospito. Ihnen wurde der Angriff auf den Atommanager Adinolfi, in Genua, vorgeworfen. Am 7. Mai 2012 wurde diesem vor seinem Haus aufgelauert und ins Knie geschossen. Zu der Tat bekannte sich die Zelle Olga FAI/FRI. Im darauffolgenden September wurden dann die beiden Gefӓhrten verhaftet. Dieser repressive Schlag reihte sich in eine ganze Serie von repressiven Operationen gegen AnarchistInnen in Italien: Z.B. die Operationen Ardire und Thor oder den langen Haftstrafen fϋr GefӓhrtInnen fϋr Genua 2001 und den Krawall 2011 in Rom. Immer werden den Verhafteten Angriffe oder Subversion in Form von Agitation vorgeworfen. Weder die Angriffe gegen das Bestehende, noch die Repression hören auf, so ist es wichtig sich nicht entmutigen zu lassen und sich mit den Gefӓhrten auf den verschiedenen Wegen solidarisch zu begnen.
In den Texten von Nicola und Alfredo können wir von ihrer kompromisslosen Haltung, gegenüber dem was uns unterdrückt, lesen. Beide sind trotz ihrer Situation im Knast weiterhin aktiv und beteiligen sich an Diskussionen.
greetings with love and solidarity

The night before last night we attacked the electronic communication net in Berlin (Germany). Our act of sabotage took place at a Vodafone radio tower and is meant as a symbol against total surveillance by governments, secret services and transnational corporations. Vodafone was chosen because it is eagerly engaged in cooperating with the british secret service GCHQ. GCHQ cooperates with the american secret service NSA. And NSA in turn cooperates with german secret service BND. Secret services collect patterns of normality and compare particular behaviours in order to find out if you could plan something deviant before you know it yourself. The collaborations of secret service industry and the industry’s secret services secure the conditions of profit and power for both of them.
For us, the careless use of electronic devices and internet applications is problematic: Every move can be digitalized and technology is not neutral. We don’t know how an emancipatory development of communication looks like, but we believe it would work in a different way and we have to find out together. In the meantime, we encourage to block infrastructure and bring it to a halt – against the stream of exploitation and surveillance, against a society based on destruction of human and nature.
Sabotage of the surveillance industry and infrastructures of exploitation!
Blind secret services!

‘Magdeburg is a city in the east of Germany: there is disruption created by an annual parade of fascists claiming to commemorate the casualties of an allied air strike that happened during the Second World War.
The emphasis they place on the nature of these casualties as victims could have the effect of distracting people’s attention from the atrocities performed by the Nazis themselves during the war, and from their role as the instigators of the conflict.’

Via ABC Brighton:
In 1933 the German Nazis created a new law, called ‘Preventive Detention’ (P.D.), which allows the state to keep people inside prison after they have finished their sentence. The courts in Eastern Germany forbid this law, because it was a ‘fascist-law’; the courts in the capitalist West-Germany never had such problems with Nazi-laws, so until today we still have P.D. in Germany – since 1993 in East and West Germany.
I am one of the victims of this Nazi-law, because 17 years ago the court convicted me, a left wing anarchist skin-head, to a long-term sentence, after a bank-robbery to ‘fundraise’ money for legal and illegal activities. The judges added P.D. (more…)

Two years in jail, it’s two years too much !
September the 14th of 2013- Let’s all mobilize everywhere to protest against the legitimization of torture in Sonja Suder’s trial and for her liberation.
September the 14th of 2011, Sonja and her friend Christian have been extradited by France to be given to German cops and jailed. Christian has been freed since but Sonja is still in jail. They left Germany in 1978 when, after a fierce repression of the revolutionary movements, every person involved in the radical protest could fear being the target of State revenge.
For two years, Sonja has been in custody in the high-security district of the prison Frankfurt-Preungesheim ; for a year she’s been enduring a trial grounded on two testimonies : one from a penitent given against a remission, the other given under torture in 1978 by a man suspected to belong to the Revolutionary Cells (RZ). If the penitent [snitch] Hans-Joachim Klein testified without shame in the Frankfurt court to give the umpteenth version of a testimony full of nonsense and contradictions (that the judge thinks worth considering anyway), Hermann F., on the contrary, always protested against the elements standing in the cross-examination he has been through : these elements are just the result of four months of torture outside of any procedural frame.

The night of the 26th August an attack with stones and colour happened against the courthouse in Hamburg. Windows were smashed and the entrance coloured. In a text that appeared it was claimed that the attack happened in solidarity with the ones facing everyday state repression. Also with the comrades raided in Berlin because of attacks against jobcenters and a solidarity action for the revolt in Turkey. Also it was in solidarity with the comrade Sonja Suder who is still imprisoned for her uncompromising stand against the state and Justice!
Here is the original writing:
Hamburg: Angriff auf Strafjustizgebäude
Was Bullen und andere Staatsdiener_innen auf den Straßen mit Kontrolle und all der Repression durchsetzen, wird vom Gericht legitimiert und vollendet. Tagtäglich entscheiden sie in ihrem Theater der “Gerechtigkeit” über die Zukunft von Menschen, strafen sie, sperren sie ein und zerstören Leben. Ein paar Steine und etwas Farbe scheinen nicht viel gegen so ein Gebäude der Macht aber die Idee von einem freien Leben ist ihr größter Alptraum, denn es würde ihr Ende, das Ende der Unterdrückung, bedeuten!
Möge dieser Angriff denen, die auf der Anklagebank sitzen Kraft geben und all den anderen, die als Angestellte oder Spitzel das Gericht betreten, mehr als den Tag versauen!
Kraft für die, die in Berlin am 14. August von Hausdurchsuchungen bestroffen waren, weil die Bullen Schuldige für Angriffe auf unterdrückerische Jobcenter und Arbeitsargenturen sowie für eine Solidaritätsaktion mit der Revolte in der Türkei suchen. Wir finden diese Aktionen wichtig und richtig, egal wer sie gemacht hat!
Viel Kraft für Sonja Suder, die immer noch aufgrund ihrer kompromisslosen Haltung gegenüber Staat und Justiz im Knast sitzt!

According to first reports, there were huge police raids on eight house projects and apartments in Berlin, including the Rigaer 94, this morning (14/8). The cops are supposedly looking for people responsible for attacks on various job centers (‘welfare offices’) as well as a recent molotov attack against police, who were conducting a drug raid in Köttbusser Tor during a solidarity demonstration for the revolt in Turkey. More news as it comes…Below is a call for spontaneous demonstration in response to the raids:
This morning, August 14th, 2013, cops raided several apartments in the Mitte, Kreuzberg and Neukölln neighbourhoods of Berlin.
In Friedrichshain the police deployed a riot squad, along with special task force troops to invade the house project Rigaer Straße 94 [whose front building was already stormed by cops on August 2nd].
The pretext for these raids were actions against several branches of the Job Center that took place in Berlin on May 2nd, as well as a solidarity action with the people revolting in Turkey after the eviction of Gezi Park in Istanbul. (more…)

Sibylle S. (witness not cooperating with authorities) stayed four months in prison under ‘coercive detention’ because she had repeatedly refused to testify as a witness against Sonja Suder. On August 6th, 2013 it finally became evident that her continued detention would not change her unyielding stance, so Sibylle walked out free.
On the other hand, Sonja is still in custody.
FREEDOM AND HAPPINESS FOR SONJA AND CHRISTIAN!
