Oct. 6th Communique from People’s Defense Units – Media Center
ISIS terrorist attacks aiming at the occupation of Kobani continue on the 21st day. Mercenary groups repeatedly shell the city on three sides and attempt to enter the town. Direct confrontations and heavy clashes are continuing at the eastern
and southern fronts, Megtel and Botan neighborhooods.
Mercenary groups attacked the hill Mishtenur on two sides and attempted to enter the town last night in southeast Kobani, but the advance of the mercenaries was stopped as a result of our force’s heavy repulse, where fighting continues in the mentioned areas, yet we cannot confirm the number of dead of the mercenaries.
At the western front our units repulsed terrorist attacks on three sides, managed to inflict big losses on the mercenaries and forced them to retreat, again we cannot confirm the number of dead of the attackers.
Mercenaries attempted to attack with a car bomb last night on the eastern front. Our forces were able to destroy the vehicle before reaching the defensive lines and killing two attackers.
In the morning hours mercenaries attacked Kanya Kurdan area from three sides, and clashes erupted between our units and the terrorists. According to what has been confirmed 8 mercenaries were killed as a result of these clashes which are ongoing in the area.
Meanwhile at the eastern front our units carried out an operation against terrorists, targeting their sites. Our troops managed to destroy a military vehicle of the ISIS fighters without confirming the number of dead in their ranks.
ISIS terrorist attacks that aim at the occupation of Kobani and the elimination of the Kurdish will and are continuing at the moment and has entered it’s twentieth days, the unparalleled resistance of our units will enable us to change the balance of the world.
Since yesterday morning hours the violent clashes have not stopped. Where the heaviest clashes took place at the southern and eastern front of the city, in direct confrontations, 74 ISIS mercenaries were killed according to what has been confirmed by our troops.
As a result of remarkable resistance by our units on all sides of the city, repelling the invaders attacks, 15 of our comrades are martyred in action after facing the mercenaries with all their strength.
Our troops also carried out an operation against ISIS terrorists yesterday near the villages of Misteriha and Qadisiye, southeast Jaz’ah region. A military vehicle was destroyed and 8 of the mercenaries were ambushed and 4 of them were killed.
In the southwestern of Serekaniye city near the village of Dahma, our units carried out an operation targeting the movements of the mercenary groups, resulting in 4 killed ISIS fighters.
Of our martyrs was valiant comrade Arin [Mirkan], who was able to perform a fedai action, blowing herself up and killing dozens of ISIS mercenaries to stop their advance. Such strong will and determination shown by comrade Arin will be the spirit of resistance in the hearts of all of our combatants of the People’s Defense Units and Women’s Defense Units. If needed all of our fighters will be comrade Arin and shall not allow the mercenaries to reach their wishes at whatever cost.

Anarchists in Australia issue a call out for decentralised attacks, disorder, riots and sabotage around the topic of the G20.
The G20 is meeting in Brisbane in November. This elite decision making body epitomises the undemocratic nature of state-sponsored global capitalism; delegates from the 20 wealthiest economic zones make self-serving proclamations which affect everyone, without open discussion or oversight. …
We are calling for people to form affinity groups in their home towns and
autonomously organise decentralised direct action against the G20 and the capitalist occupation of our lives.
See you on the streets!!

325 received this text from our comrades of Anarchist Network, an international network of Persian-speaking anarchists. Check this site. Death to Daesh/ISIS.
As you know, war and conflict on the Kanton boundaries of Kurdistan, West of Kubani, from September 2014 has started.
This situation is worrying us a lot. The main purpose of writing this report is to change observation of this tragic dangerous situation in which our “Dear Kurdish People” and “Our Comrades” are facing day and night, into a direct participation and into actions which could lead to an international support in helping defenseless Kurdish women, men and children.
We can work together to assist Kurds in Kubani which can show “the power of our will” and “our conscience” towards people in need.
This can be through any kind of actions, gathering together in different cities, countries, nationally and internationally.
To achieve this aim, we would like to ask all “Anarchist Groups and Organisations” around the world for an “International Day of Support and Solidarity with Kurdish People”.
Please, please, let’s put our differences aside and work together to rescue a “Nation Who Are So Defenseless, Fleeing Their Home” and running with empty hands and barefeet and hungry and thirsty in the desert and mountains to arrive somewhere safe, but thousands of them, among them many children, have already died of starvation on their way to nowhere.
The shocking story is this: Those innocents who can arrive in some countries like Turkey, not only will be not protected, but are being brutally attacked by the fascist military of the Turkish government. This is something inhuman.
How can we stay silent and do NOTHING??? We are human, aren’t we?
Kubani is our heart and our heart’s beat should not fall.
The fall of Kubani is the fall of us all, against religious fascist forces like Daesh / ISIS, etc.
Please let us know of any actions in support, it does not matter which action you choose, as long as it is a progressive one which can awaken the people of the world…

In Shingal, Kobane and all Rojava, ISIS is Dehak and the people are Kawa
by Devrimci Anarşist Faaliyet – DAF – Revolutionary Anarchist Action
In Kurdistan, people are fighting against ISIS, “the procreated violence” given birth to by capitalism and the States that start wars for their own benefits. ISIS, the subcontractor of the States that pursue income strategies on the region, is attacking people while yelling “Islamic State!” and “holy war, jihad!”. People are suffering from hunger and thirst, getting ill, getting injured; migrating and dying. They are still fighting in that struggle for existence. People are fighting not for the schemes and strategies around meeting tables, not for income, but for their freedom.
As freedom is to exist in danger of being non-existent. As freedom is to live. Like the fight of Kawa, defending the life by resisting against Dehaks.
And now the USA, the EU, Turkey, all the states that have expectations of income from the region, are establishing coalitions against ISIS, the “procreated violence” which in reality isn’t a disturbance to them at all. (more…)
Excerpt from 'Towards the generalisation of armed struggle' by Alfredo M. Bonanno (Elephant Editions)
Wednesday, September 24th, 2014
It is within the perspective of generalised mass armed struggle that the insurrection takes on libertarian meaning, and marks the definitive critique of any ‘closed’ attempt to organise the management of the class conflict.
Generalised armed conflict is the natural outcome of a situation that is getting worse every day. The exploited are beginning to point out this necessity in a series of anti-institutional actions that are continually spreading. The isolated acts of punishment carried out by minority clandestine groups against some of those responsible for exploitation are coming to be accepted with satisfaction and approved by the mass.

On Friday, the 2nd of May, the House of Trade Unions in Odessa caught on fire. Altogether at least 42 people lost their lives during the clashes in the city, most of them in the fire and the others in streetfights. There is an excellent Russian language, eyewitness account of the events available here.
Events began to unfold when armed pro-Russian AntiMaidan fighters attacked a demonstration organised by football hooligans with nationalist sympathies. This attack resulted in lethalities, but soon the pro-Russians were overpowered. They escaped back to their protest camp in the Kulikovo field, but pro-Kiev demonstrators followed and lit the protest camp on fire. The pro-Russians then escaped to the House of the Trade Unions, which soon caught on fire. The fire spreading, is visible in this video. At the 2 minute mark, you can see a flame behind a closed window, making it plausible that some of the fires were started from the inside. For example, due to accidents with Molotov cocktails which were used by both sides during the fight. However, you can also see pro-Ukrainian nationalists throwing Molotov cocktails, making them at least partially responsible for the fire. (more…)
Vancouver: CEO Johnathan More of Aldrin Resource Corp, Athabasca Nuclear & Mira Resources Corp has his house shot up by unknown individuals (Kanada)
Saturday, April 26th, 2014
Friday, April 4, 2014 – Cops have launched an investigation after multiple gunshots were fired at a $3 million dollar house of a corporate executive.
Johnathan More is president and CEO of Aldrin Resource Corp., a junior uranium company that is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange. The company recently announced its crews had begun drilling in search of uranium at its property in Saskatchewan’s Athabasca Basin.
More is also named as a director of Athabasca Nuclear, another Venture-listed uranium explorer, and the CEO and director of Mira Resources Corp., an oil and gas company with projects in West African countries Ghana and Angola.
More is listed on the Mira website as a former investment adviser and the founder of JM Finance LTD, a Canadian venture capital company. Police have not made any arrests and have no suspects at this time. There is, so far, no claim of responsibility. No-one was injured or killed in the attack.

In the early morning hours of Thursday, April 10th, 2014 —after two warning phone calls to the media— a car bomb with 75kg of explosives was detonated outside one of Bank of Greece’s offices, located at Amerikis Street in Athens, causing extensive material damages in the surrounding area (but no injuries).
Fifteen days later, the urban guerrilla group Revolutionary Struggle (Epanastatikos Agonas) claimed responsibility for the bombing. Below are just a few excerpts from their lengthy articulate communiqué (a complete translation is always welcome!).
As many of you may recall, three anarchists revealed their membership in the group four years ago, in April 2010: Nikos Maziotis and Pola Roupa, who have gone underground since the summer of 2012 (recently, the government placed a huge bounty on their heads), and Kostas Gournas, who is currently held captive in Koridallos prison.
On the 10th of April 2014, Revolutionary Struggle carried out a bombing attack against the Supervision Directorate of the Bank of Greece at Amerikis Street [Athens], a building which also houses the IMF’s resident representative in Greece, Wes McGrew. Although the blow targeted the Bank of Greece, the head office of Piraeus Bank which is located exactly on the opposite side of the street also suffered damage, what makes the hit even more successful, because the Piraeus Bank has evolved in one of the larger systemic Greek banking institutions after the acquisition of ATEbank, it has benefited from the predatory memorandum-policy applied against the Greek people in recent years, and is one of the financial factors that are jointly responsible for people’s woes.
The attack was carried out with a car bomb containing 75kg of ANFO explosive. Exactly four years after the crackdown against the organization, and while the State alongside many enemies of armed struggle were cheering for the “success of dismantling” the Revolutionary Struggle, this action came to prove them wrong. The bombing against the Bank of Greece is dedicated to anarchist comrade Lambros Foundas, a member of the Revolutionary Struggle who was killed in an armed clash with police officers in Dafni on March 10th, 2010, during a preparatory action of the organization. The comrade lost his life during an attempt to expropriate a car which would be used in an action of the Revolutionary Struggle, in the context of the organization’s strategy of that period —a period which marked the beginning of the economic crisis. This strategy was intended to strike and sabotage structures, institutions and persons that hold a central role in the largest, historically, antipopular assault that was to take place with the signing of the first memorandum in May 2010. Lambros Foundas fought and gave his life so that the contemporary junta of economic and political elites would not pass —the junta of the IMF/ECB/EU troika. He fought and gave his life so that the contemporary junta of the Capital and the State would not pass. So that the new totalitarianism imposed all over the planet, on the pretext of the global financial crisis, would not pass. Lambros Foundas gave his life fighting to turn the crisis into an opportunity for social Revolution. The Bank of Greece bombing is to some extent a continuation of that strategy which included the attacks against Citibank, Eurobank and the Athens stock exchange.
Thus, in honor of our comrade, the action against the Bank of Greece bears the signature Commando Lambros Foundas. Besides, the best homage to a comrade who gave his life in struggle is to continue the struggle itself, for which he fell in combat. And this struggle has never had, or will ever have, any other direction but the overthrow of capitalism and the State —social Revolution.
A blow in response to Greece’s return to the markets
As everyone figured out —from the government, the parties, to the Greek and international media— we chose the 10th of April for our attack because this date marks the exit of the Greek State to international financial markets in search of the first long-term loan after four years; the next day, April 11th, the leader of the most powerful European State, protagonist in the enforcement of extreme neoliberal policies and austerity across Europe, and one of the most ideal exponents of the interests of European economic elites, the superterrorist German chancellor, Angela Merkel, was scheduled to arrive in Greece for the political and economic capitalization of this “Greek success”. (…)
The “salvation of the country” concerns the big capital, the transnational ruling class and the powerful lenders of the country. It concerns the structures and institutions of globalized capitalism. It is linked to the States, the political staff in Greece and Europe; to all sorts of political lackeys of the establishment, who support this regime at any price. It concerns a disgraceful minority of the Greek society.
Those whom this “salvation” does not concern —and instead they have paid and still pay with their own blood to save the system from the crisis— are the vast majority of people. The 5 million people who are living in conditions of poverty. The 2.5 million people who are living in absolute destitution. The 700,000 poor children who do not even have the basics, who are undernourished, who feel cold, suffer from fainting spells, and end up in institutions for a plate of food. Those who get sick, those who go mad. The ones who lose their home over debts to the banks and the State, those who live without electricity, those who lack the basic survival necessities. The 4,000 people who committed suicide because they were financially ruined. The thousands of homeless people, the ones who are depended on soup kitchens, who are digging through garbage to feed themselves, those who are slowly dying on the sidelines. All of these wretched that went financially and socially bankrupt, and pay the “salvation of the country” with their lives and the lives of their children. All these people have come to understand what it means to see your life go bankrupt, what it means to see your life not worth anything anymore. They have come to understand that the “avoidance of Greece’s bankruptcy” means war against society, social euthanasia. (…)
Social revolution cannot be postponed to an indefinite future, nor be limited to an indistinct projectuality. It requires constant revolutionary action in the present time, and involves the organization and formation of a ground-breaking revolutionary movement that will elaborate and define its strategic steps, and clash with the establishment’s centralized policies. It involves the political process and willingness to put specific revolutionary proposals into practice.
In the present circumstances, a revolutionary platform could be summarized as follows:
-Unilateral termination of payment of the Greek debt.
-Exit from the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) and the European Union (EU).
-Expropriation of assets of the Capital, large companies, multinational corporations, of all movable and immovable property of the capitalists.
-Abolition of the banking system, erasure of all debts to banks,
handover of small possessions that were seized by banks, and
socialization of bank assets.
-Expropriation of state property and utilities companies; expropriation of church property.
-Socialization of the means of production, industry, ports, means of transfer and communication, transportation, utilities, hospitals and educational institutions; the workers will engage in their managing.
-Abolition of the State and the bourgeois parliament of professional politicians, to be replaced by a confederal system of popular assemblies and workers’ councils, whose coordination, communication and decision-implementation will be achieved through delegates elected and immediately recallable. At national level, in place of the old representative bourgeois parliament there will be a supreme Confederal People’s Assembly, whose members will be authorized members-delegates elected and immediately recallable by the local popular assemblies and workers’ councils.
-Abolition of the police and the army, to be replaced by an armed popular militia, not a mercenary one.
A discussion and agreement upon a revolutionary platform is a prerequisite for the creation of a revolutionary anticapitalist movement, and as Revolutionary Struggle we wish to see a well-intentioned dialogue opening on this issue. It is necessary that a Revolution overcomes national borders. It is unrealistic to believe that a Revolution will be viable if confined within the national borders of a small country like Greece. However let us make a beginning here, in Greece, for the demolition of the Eurozone and the European Union, for the abolition of capitalism and the State. Let us put the armed proletarian counterattack into practice. Let us make a beginning here, in Greece, for an international social Revolution.

Viendo en el fortalecimiento del debate real y sincero, así como en el mutuo conocimiento de las particularidades de cada región en donde actúan grupos o individuxs refractarios al orden mundial, una excelente oportunidad para afianzar nuestra lucha, damos lugar a este numero compartido entre Conspiración Ácrata y Abrazando el Caos.
Habiendo comprendido que detrás de algunos aspectos que nos diferencian, como compañerxs que llevan adelante sus respectivas publicaciones, nos une algo mucho mas sustancial, que va en el sentir anárquico de la búsqueda por destruir la autoridad y a quienes la encarnan.
Con lxs compañerxs, en medio del dialogo sincero, la critica y el compartir de ideas, supimos reconocernos mas cercanxs a pesar de las etiquetas (nihilista, insurreccionalista, individualista, etc.), superando el estancamiento de los ismos o meras clasificaciones. Así, no nos hemos privado de compartir nuestras experiencias a fin de con ellas enriquecer el debate y la acción, compartiendo a su vez temas y pareceres propios del contexto regional, hallando por momentos un cierto paralelismo en procesos históricos que repercuten en los tiempos actuales, así como el mismo coraje y la misma convicción a la hora de enfrentar a nuestros enemigos.

From Even If Your Shakes via anarchistnews.org
A black bloc marches in Cairo tonight [24/1], preparing for confrontations with security forces near Tahrir Square on the even of the second anniversary of the revolution.
Anarchists have been present in Egypt before, during, and after the revolution, but until today, they have yet to organize a mass grouping under the banner of anarchism. The Ultras of Egypt’s football clubs have for years been associated with anarchist ideas and actions, and they are widely credited with having initiated the level of militancy that brought down the Mubarak government in February of 2011.
