Han pasado tanta mierda de parte de la llamada pandilla Eco-Extremista y de todas sus porristas misántropas, nihilista y aspirantes. Encontré su texto del año pasado, “El mito anarquista“, lleno de cristianismo vulgar que esconden como eco-extremismo. Vamos, ¿es esto lo mejor que pueden hacer? ¿Afirmando haber matado a personas sin esperanza en alguna ocasión? Y leyendo sus amenazas de muerte mientras publicas fotos de alguien que asesinaste (según tu reivindicación, por supuesto), es realmente divertido, no, realmente lo es (realmente me río, literalmente cuando leo los comunicados y las fotografías, ¿qué mierda?).
(MÉXICO) 60 COMUNICADO DE ITS: SOBRE LA DELACIÓN DE LA ONG 325
[Abrir con el navegador TOR]
Tengo que decir, este comunicado hace mi día, es jodidamente hilarante.
Después de que tu fea cabeza calva, Abe, haya sido expuesta, comenzaste a actuar como el imbécil infantil que todos ustedes son. ¿Sus estúpidos teóricos de América del Norte y tu pequeño grupo de porristas en Europa? (more…)

There have been so much bullshit going on from these so-called Eco-Extremist gang and all of their misanthrope-armchair-nihilist-wannabe cheerleaders. I found your text last year, “The Anarchist Myth”, filled with vulgar Christianity covering as Eco-Extremism. Come on, is this the best you can do? Claiming on killing hopeless people on random occasion? And to read your death threats while posting pictures of someone that you murdered (to your claim of course), is really funny, no it really is (I really laugh, literally when I read the communiques and pics, what the fuck?).
I gotta say, this communique make my day, it is fucking hilarious.
After your ugly bald head Abe have been exposed, you started to begin acting like childish moron that you all are. Your stupid theorists from North America and your small cheerleader group in Europe? It’s one thing if you’re discussing the insights or the limitation of violence (I’m all ears!), it is another thing when you claimed to be anti-human and yet you only kill one hopeless girl in a university campus (oh, you kill more than one, please?) and your fucking proud of that? If you are really anti-human, please and please I begged you, make an atom bomb or whatever means/tools and commit a genocide of at least 10 people at one time? And after that kill yourself, you stupid human. (more…)

The State and Capitalism are an inseparable unit of criminals and destroyers. Many bigoted leaders are gathering to consolidate their crimes. Eventually there will be a situation where the workers, the fishermen, the urban poor and all sectors of society who are subjected to oppression will reach a boiling point of anger and disgust.
Capitalism, which is a social relation, has turned the masses of humanity into passive human beings, limiting themselves only to the creation of profit. The purpose of work is to keep the world revolving around society being divided into two classes: the Bourgeoisie and the Proletariat, or more simply put- the oppressor and the oppressed. (more…)

We are a group consisting of autonomous individuals who carried out some poster bombing and vandalism actions against Bank of Indonesia, ATMs, police posts, the Digulist roundabout, the West Kalimantan governor’s office and several other highly visible locations in Pontianak City. We carried out these actions as a response to the meeting between Global Capitalist organizations the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund that is being held in Bali from October 8-14, 2018.
These spontaneous actions we carried out express our uncompromising rejection of a normal life full of daily submission. These actions are a manifestation of our hatred, anxiety and and anger against a system that requires us to accept a society where we have no control over our own lives. Their meeting is a clear sign that Global Capitalism has improved it’s position in controlling daily life with various disgusting economic schemes and investments.
For us there are two options: taking action or remaining silent – and we will never choose the second option. Passively watching or reading the news about the IMF-WBG meeting, that is not an option for us. If we take a deeper look, we can see that all aspects in this world relate to economics, and yes, they are the people who are behind all of this bullshit.
Here is a sentence that is appropriate for all those groups and individuals who condemn our actions as immoral and irrational acts: There is no system or morality that can hold us back when we reach the peak of our anger.
And another thing you should know: you are all under their control. You just don’t realize that the concept of good / bad morality that you follow is what allows them to achieve their goals. You are all their obedient tools.
We are what you call Utopianists. We are Anarchists!

For the first time in the Indonesia anarchist movement there is a snitch who has given information blaming a known anarchist comrade in that territory for organising the Mayday demo (M1) in Yogyakarta. Several comrades are still hunted by police and had to go underground. Here is the info:
Achmad Azwar Darmawan was one of the people who were arrested during the M1 (May 1st) protest in Yogyakarta. He and three other people were arrested when they escaped to Bogor. They were accused of writing down the anti-monarchy graffiti during the protest, which upset a lot of people. Two people became suspects, while two others were set free. It should be emphasized that the escape was done based on individual and group (affinity) decision where each participant was expected to understand that the action was done based on a joint decision (read: without any leader).
The decision-process among M1 participants, especially among those who wore all-black, was very different from the decision-process among leftists or other authoritarian groups, which usually is controlled by a party or a certain central-command, which is very hierarchical. There was no orchestrator who initiated the protest. Azwar is a deluded leftist who risk his comrades for his own safety. (more…)

One of the women activists of the National Student Front (FMN) and also a radical feminist who is active as editor in chief of Merah Muda Memudar (MMM), Anindya Shabrina, was threatened with criminalization after complaining of sexual abuse cases by police officers she experienced during the forced dissolution of discussions of Papuan students in Surabaya at Friday, July 6, 2018.
Papuan students living in a student dormitory on Kalasan, Surabaya, East Java held a film screening of the 1998 Biak Papua bloody tragedy. When film discussions were underway, police intelligence entered the dormitory, which was immediately followed by other police officers and Satpol PP personnel. Papuan students standing near the door and discussing the event with the police were dragged out and provoked by the police. (more…)
Not Ideological Solidarity but Critical Revolutionary Solidarity: A Personal Reflection of Yogyakarta/Indonesia Anarchist Black Cross

Not Ideological Solidarity but Critical Revolutionary Solidarity: A Personal Reflection of Yogyakarta/Indonesia Anarchist Black Cross (Palang Hitam)
Knowledge chooses its project,
each project is new and chooses its moments,
each moment is new, but simultaneously emerges from
the memory of all the moments that existed before
The Interior of the Absolute
It is fair to say that the Black Cross were initiated after the May Day event in Yogyakarta 2018, a demonstration/blockades that ended up in a riot between the so-called “local people” and the demonstrators (many, even the so-called Student Organization involved in the organizing blamed the Black Clad anarchists for igniting the riot and provoked property destruction, and to their surprised the graffiti that call to “Kill the Sultan”, until now there have been no one claimed this). Therefore, even Palang Hitam now are progressing their activities to other places and helping other revolutionaries who are facing the same legal consequences or just being in the grassroots conflict to provide medical aid, its “over-lapping” solidarity still meant that Palang Hitam were originated, initiated, and activated by the comrades who are “on the list” (of the powers that be) and those who are completely not on the list but decided to actively participated. So, in order to specified the location of these comrades, mainly central java, it is fair to say that Palang Hitam is Palang Hitam Yogyakarta or Central Java.
What being said in this short critical reflection are based on specific geographical and historical understanding of the anarchist movement or the revolutionary movement of individuals against state and capitalism in Indonesia. There’s no need to say about the contrast between our geographical location and our comrades in the west and those who are also in the global south, especially considering prison solidarity in its historic sense. Indonesia, have plenty of oral history about prison rebellion and rebellious individuals, but these were almost never written, these were almost like mythopoesis among criminals for generation and some even become so legendary that it always inspired rebellion each time there’s a prisoner get beaten very severely or until they die. It is obvious there’s almost no official history of them because, who want to write about these violent, lawless, and cool individuals? Even the so-called radical academics tend to avoid this subject. (more…)

From ABC Indonesia:
At present, Taman Sari residents are facing evictions carried out by the Bandung city government. Previously there were clashes which caused one backhoe to be burned by residents and students of Bandung. The clash resumed in front of the Bandung Mayor’s Office, between a mass of activists and police who were repressive towards demonstrators. A third warning letter has been issued and the final eviction was announced to be held today, Monday, August 27, 2018. Anti-authoritarian activist and citizen are building barricades and gathering as many mobs as possible. The Indonesian Human Rights Commission has going to the location of the conflict today, and gave an ultimatum of mediation within three days. Outside of the three days, the possibility of open clashes will occur.
We call for international solidarity for the struggle of Taman Sari, Bandung, as well as at various other points of conflict in Indonesia such as Kulon Progo, Yogyakarta about New Yogyakarta International Airport (NYIA) and Bara-Baraya, Makassar.
Surely our Palang Hitam Indonesia / Indonesian Anarchist Black Cross is trying to help them in every conflict area!
Spread our words. Let the world know we are fighting too. Long live international solidarity!

07.08.18: The 7 prisoners from Sukorharjo charged for involvement in the the riots outside the PT. RUM synthetic cotton factory faced their final hearing on Tuesday, August 6th. The riots followed on from the demonstration that took place in front of the factory due to it emitting a foul, toxic odor. The demonstration descended into a chaotic riot that led to the torching of security posts and clashes with the police and soldiers. The 7 prisoners have been detained since their arrests in February 2018. The trial was chaired by Chief Judge Sigit Hariyanto. The sentences of the 7 prisoners were as follows:
1. Muhamad Hisbun Payau (Iss), a member of left-wing student organization Pembebasan, sentenced to two years and three months imprisonment.
2. Sutarno, a resident of Karanganyar, sentenced to two years imprisonment.
3. Brilian, a resident of Nguter, sentenced to two years imprisonment.
4. Bambang, a resident of Bulakrejo, sentenced to three years imprisonment and fined 10 million Rupiah.
5. Kelvin, a resident of Plesan, sentenced to two years and three months imprisonment.
6. Sukemi, a resident of Celep, sentenced to two years and three months imprisonment.
7. Danang, a resident of Nguter, sentenced to two years imprisonment and fined 10 million Rupiah.
The first 3 defendants were convicted for violating Article 406, paragraph (1) of the Indonesian Criminal Code regarding “the destruction of property belonging to another person”. The judge’s sentencing was lighter than the demands of Prosecutor Rohmadi who was seeking 4 years and two months imprisonment for Iss and 4 years imprisonment for Sutarno and Brilian.
The last 4 defendants were charged and convicted for violating Article 187, paragraphs (1) and (2) along with Article 170, paragraph (1) of the Criminal Code.
The sentences for Danang and Bambang were lower than what the Prosecutor was seeking – the Prosecutor was seeking 4 years imprisonment and a fine of 50 million Rupiah for Danang and 5 years imprisonment along with a 50 million Rupiah fine for Bambang.
