Italy: Proposal for a Day of Liberation on April 25th

Sunday, April 5th, 2020

For a few weeks now, almost three billion people have been forced into home detention.
In Italy, as in other parts of the world, the first people who rebelled against the worsening conditions of their survival, the prisoners, have been repressed with dead and wounded.
While science proposes conflicting theses, part of the scientific community states that the quarantine period, although in alternating phases, will last at least until next year.
The state, however, has already chosen which truth to propagate to justify the measures taken. Forced isolation at home is being prolonged, the only proposal-constriction made to the population is to obey and wait by watching and self-surveillance… but for how long?

For now the end of the measures has been postponed until April 13th, but most likely there will be further extensions…

April 25th is the feast of liberation. Liberation not only from Nazi-Fascism, but from all forms of oppression.
The oppression of living in a world where movements are continuously controlled and monitored, with checkpoints, soldiers everywhere, drones, cameras, electronic bracelets.
The oppression of being individually considered as infected if we do not respect the laws and think that socializing and the possibility of going out are not transferable in exchange for the security of survival.
The oppression of living in terror of the invisible, because the problem is not the virus, but the ecological and social conditions in which it spreads. (more…)

International Call for a Dangerous May

Sunday, April 5th, 2020

In May, Let’s Play : A Call to Conflict

Here we can easily realise that the hydroalcoholic gel can be used as hand disinfectant but also to start a fire.
In other terms : that we don’t need the state guidelines to take care of our friends, and, once we have done with the survival thing, we have nothing better to do than going out searching for evil plans. More than ever we need revenge and true friendships.

Now that we are stuck into this futuristic system, our only solution is to declare war to normality, if we don’t want to die in a aseptic boredom.

We face a dual movement. On one side it seems that the power never has been so strong, winning the compliant citizen’s hearts and minds. On the other hand, it seems that it never had to manage such a complex situation (at least since we are born).

Therefore, we can maybe conclude with two things :

First of all, it is not about waiting for any masses that would wake up to confront it.

Secondly it’s look like just the good moment to attack.

The good moment here doesn’t mean the ONLY good moment. It’s always the good moment to fight. (more…)

Revolutionary Struggle Member Pola Roupa: Social and Class Inequality Breeds Pandemics (Greece)

Saturday, April 4th, 2020

Greece : Transfer of Pola Rοupa to the prison of Eleonas in Thebes and update on the situation in the Greek prisons

We are experiencing the deepest systemic crisis that is killing. Covid 19 was created by deep poverty and inequality. Doctors have already spoken out about the new poverty conditions that all kinds of epidemics are hatching in different parts of the globe. Covid 19 is a child of inequality, and as it gets deeper, new viruses may be born that may be even more murderous than this coronavirus. Isn’t it time for political criticism? But it is the very system of capitalism and the market economy of political oligarchy called representative democracy that creates an ever-widening gap between wealth and poverty, resulting in an ever-increasing poverty spreading across many countries on the planet.

A prominent pulmonologist who has publicly raised the issue of extreme poverty as a cause of the pandemic and has said that if inequality is not addressed, we will continue to have such pandemic phenomena, never again appeared on television screens. The way covid 19 is treated is also done according to social and class conditions, although the system is essentially responsible for this development. Covid 19 may not discriminate against who it hits, but not everyone has the luxury of proper care (large homes with compliance with safety and hygiene, good nutrition) and not everyone has the ability to purchase overpriced materials to protect themselves, especially now with the millions of unemployed in Greece, locked in their homes and even exposed to hunger. Patients with covid 19 no longer have access to public hospitals that are already under the weight of the pandemic due to shortages of materials, infrastructure, and staff, while diagnostic tests are limited.

Prison-State UK comes into Law : Coronavirus

Wednesday, April 1st, 2020

The Coronavirus Act 2020 in the UK is now in force for the next two years. It is a totalitarian coup by a right-wing government which has already shown it’s utter contempt for the judiciary, for parliament and for the people. Many of the provisions of this Act are already experienced by those on the margins of society, by dissidents, those in the prison and criminal justice system, the poor, and ethnic groups consistently disposed of by the police and the system, through poverty, imprisonment and death. Now the grand experiment is whether the kind of control infrastructure and total suspension of rights already administered to particular groups can be rolled out to the entire population.

The most manipulable provisions come, as ever, under the Mental Health sections. Always a good catch-all since dissidence, illegality and criticism of the existent is already considered by the system to be tantamount to mental illness, people can now be hospitalised and medicated on the say-so of a single approved clinician. This power of one also decides the fate of those awaiting trial, convicted persons (we wonder whether that refers to anyone with a criminal record regardless of their current status) and those currently serving prison time: the Act allows a single person to sign off on a transfer from a prison to mental hospital. To the cynical, it might imply that unruly prison populations or undesirables (either currently or historically) are now living under the threat of being summarily detained or if already detained, then transferred and sedated with a no-questions-asked decision by a single clinician.

‘Some old things to live by, some new things to live by…’ – Anti-authoritarian ideas to hold onto in these times of virus and crisis (Au$tralia)

Friday, March 27th, 2020

We’re all living quite a situation here. Before the virus had got near most of us, we were thrown into this necessary mode of life called social-distancing. Our lack of knowledge and the speed it has covered the globe and is transmitting within the locations we live has produced feelings of shock, confusion and fear. While these feelings make sense, we should also recognise and counter the tendency that they produce towards individualism and isolation.

Fear. Individualism. Isolation. Currently the circulation of these sentiments is exponentially bolstering the power of the state. As Crimethinc have said, “social distancing must not mean total isolation. We won’t be safer if our society is reduced to a bunch atomised of individuals”. Such an atomised society is the path to least resistance. Even as the virus spreads we must not become too isolated and disconnected from each other to be able to resist state control and the implementation of measures that fuck most of us over in a desperate attempt to save the economy.

We’ve never organised in a situation like this before. We’ve never organised where the idea that to be responsible to each other requires us to stay away from each other is common sense. And yet, we’re still finding ways to set up networks of mutual aid and support, to get supplies to people who need them. As things progress – as what is a medical- scientific issue expands further and further into the terrain of the social – we’ll find ourselves returning to the things we always knew, that we’d learnt in all our experiences of struggle and resistance.

Consider this a simple reminder of some of those things, to keep them in mind now, before fear and isolation means we’ve ceded too much ground to an increasingly authoritarian state. (more…)

Italia: Quale internazionale? Intervista e dialogo con Alfredo Cospito dal carcere di Ferrara. Terza parte (Vetriolo)

Thursday, March 26th, 2020

PDF: Quale internazionale? Intervista e dialogo con Alfredo Cospito dal carcere di Ferrara. Terza parte (Vetriolo, giornale anarchico, n. 4, inverno 2020)

Il testo che riportiamo qui è la terza e ultima parte di “Quale internazionale? Intervista e dialogo con Alfredo Cospito dal carcere di Ferrara”, pubblicata nel mese di marzo 2020 nel numero 4 del giornale anarchico “Vetriolo”. Le parti prima e seconda sono state pubblicate rispettivamente nel numero 2 (autunno 2018) e 3 (inverno 2019). Data la complessità e la vastità degli argomenti trattati e del testo stesso, non è stato possibile pubblicarlo integralmente in un solo numero del giornale e si è scelto di suddividerlo in tre parti. Tutto lo scritto verrà stampato in un volume di prossima pubblicazione.

Con l’occasione, segnaliamo e correggiamo un errore presente nella terza parte (invitiamo a fare attenzione a questo passaggio durante la lettura del giornale). L’errore si trova nella quarta colonna di pagina 11, righe 4 – 11. Per una maggiore comprensione riportiamo l’intera frase: «Questo concetto può riacquistare un senso, una sua concretezza, una sua attualità solo se accompagnato dalla «rivolta», dalla violenza. La «rivoluzione» si accontenta del “pathos” (sentimenti, passioni, fascinazione) e della “praxis” (azione distruttiva, la propaganda del fatto, la violenza)».

L’errore è nella parola «rivoluzione», cui bisogna sostituire «rivolta». Quindi la frase corretta è: «Questo concetto può riacquistare un senso, una sua concretezza, una sua attualità solo se accompagnato dalla «rivolta», dalla violenza. La «rivolta» si accontenta del “pathos” (sentimenti, passioni, fascinazione) e della “praxis” (azione distruttiva, la propaganda del fatto, la violenza)».

ES/PT – Porto Alegre: Desobedezca – Viva! (Brasil)

Thursday, March 26th, 2020

Frente a las crecientes medidas de excepción por el Covid-19, en Porto Alegre salimos a colar unos afiches, para que el miedo no sea el único estímulo en las calles.

Porque sabemos que cuando el poder dice preocuparse por nosotros, necesitamos urgentemente desconfiar de él.

La normalidad que defienden, en estos tiempos de pandemia, saldrá triunfante de ella, con un control propio de un estado de guerra, impuesto en nombre de la salud y seguridad. Así, para nosotrxs, lxs anárquicxs, es imposible defender esa normalidad, no defenderemos una vida de miseria. Por eso, no retrocedemos al colmo de fomentar plataformas alternativas, consumos alternativos, espiritualidades alternativas, lecturas alternativas, sumisión alternativa que ayuden a pasar la cuarentena online.

[Santiago, Chile] Libro: Memoria y Combate – Compilado de las semanas de agitación en memoria del anarquista Javier Recabarren

Wednesday, March 18th, 2020

PDF: Portada – Memoria y Combate

PDF: Libro – Memoria y Combate

La presente publicación nace con la intención de difundir destellos de la vida de un anarquista de la región chilena que falleció producto de un accidente. La publicación busca ser un aporte para la construcción de la memoria combativa, que, en este caso y como podrán encontrar en sus páginas se ha manifestado con diferentes gestos concretos a lo largo de los años con iniciativas, propaganda, sabotajes, fuego, reflexiones, anécdotas y más, gestos anónimos por el compañero y que hoy son compilados y salen a la luz en un nuevo formato. Para nosotrxs la muerte de un anarquista no puede pasar desapercibida, sea la forma que sea su muerte. Un/a compañerx que asume su vida en permanente lucha contra la opresión, la explotación y el poder en sus múltiples formas y concreta sus ideas en hechos es totalmente dignx de rescatar, difundir y replicar, es por eso que no olvidamos a Javier Recabarren, su muerte es un llamado para continuar firmes en la praxis subversiva anarquista.

Mexico: Sí Sí Señora! Fuimos Muy Malas y Fuimos Todas! (Recuento de un día de guerra) – F.B.I

Sunday, March 15th, 2020

+ Mexico City, Mexico: Brief Overview of the March 8th Day of Rage

El pasado 8M volvimos a salir y nos portamos muy mal!

Como habíamos anunciado estuvimos presentes en la lucha callejera con nuestra rabia antisistémica junto a un chingo de compañeras de distintos grupos de afinidad y colectivas anárquicas y muchísimas mujeres que se unieron a la revuelta de manera espontanea…

Volvimos a contagiar de furia a los sectores adormecidos del «movimiento feminista» y a los grupos «etapistas».

I. No Somos Una Ni Somos Cien, Somos Un Chingo…

Los medios de domesticación masiva (de «izquierda» y de «derecha») como siempre mienten junto a lxs cacalover del «nuevo» régimen cuando dicen que las manifestantes fuimos 80,000, cuando fuimos en realidad más de 300,000.

También mienten cuando dicen que las «violentas» fuimos mayormente rechazadas por las ciudadanistas y que solo eramos «un grupúsculo menor de cincuenta».

La verdad es diferente: a cada acción directa se oían los coros de «fuimos todas» y se contagiaban con nuestra rabia anárquica cada vez más mujeres que espontáneamente se unían a apoyarnos en los ataques contra los símbolos del capitalismo y el patriarcado. (more…)

Berlin, Deutschland: Soli-Demo – “Schulter an Schulter in Solidarität mit den politischen Gefangenen”

Friday, March 13th, 2020

PDF: Flyer – Berlin

Kundgebung am Sonntag, den 22. März 2020
um 15 Uhr auf dem Hermannplatz

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.

Brazil: Doxxing action against Oliver Fontana by ‘Cells of Opposition to the System’ – EN/ES/PT

Thursday, March 12th, 2020

To all

We take responsibility for a doxxing action against OLIVER FONTANA, a lawyer in São Paulo, Brazil. Data in the links below:

https://pastebin.com/VrNwMu4A

https://hastebin.com/abiwirobus.sql

https://www.pastefs.com/pid/182606

The reason why this individual was our target is because he practiced physical and psychological torture on his ex-wife and 4 minor children. The case was reported in 2014 on the ‘Fantastico’ program of the reactionary channel ‘Red Globo de Televisión de Brasil’. Link to the news:

http://g1.globo.com/fantastico/noticia/2014/10/brasileiro-e-americana-se-enfrentam-na-justica-pela-guarda-de-4-filhos.html

OLIVER FONTANA is a member of the multimillion-dollar Fontana family, owner of BRF Brasil Foods, one of the world’s largest companies in the mass murder of animals (it produces meat and meat products under the Sadia, Perdigão and Qualy brands). He hides behind the image of the “Buddhist pacifist” and has no punishment for buying the Brazilian judiciary with the fortune of his family. But our collective is not for sale, so we present this male asshole in tribute to the International Day of Struggle for Women on March 8.

And here, a warning to all machos, misogynists, LGBTQphobes, racists, xenophobes and fascists: From now on, any one of you will be the target of retaliation from our collectives if you do not stop your attacks against socially vulnerable groups.

These scum are encouraged to attack and kill by their “messiah”, the psychopath Jair Bolsonaro. The time has come to stop them. This time we did a doxxing attack. The next time could be otherwise. Especially since we have access to their residences. A visit from us would be tragic for them. (more…)

‘After 10 Years! Lambros Fountas Lives in the Heart of Every Fighter’ by Act for Freedom Now!

Tuesday, March 10th, 2020

”There are some people for whom there should have been mountains with their names written upon them for all time. Tombstones are not tall enough..”

On March 10, 2010, in Athens the anarchist and member of Revolutionary Struggle, Lambros Fountas falls dead in an armed clash with the uniformed servants of the state, during a preparatory action of the organization.
Lambros Fountas cannot easily be categorized. He has always been THERE. He fell fighting, as a member of R.S., of an organization that came to question the end of the history of urban guerrilla struggle in Greece in a deafening way. Where the broader radical movement fought with all its force so as not to internalize the imposed defeat of the revolutionary struggle by all means. The burial of the revolutionary perspective. In this repression and media delirium, R.S. with its upgraded operational capability and its anarchist-theoretical elaboration raised the bar for revolutionary organizations.

Lambros died with a gun in his hand, just as he lived: standing up, fighting for a human society of equality and solidarity, without state and exploitation. And for that exactly we will remember the life and death of Lambros everywhere on labour protests, strikes, anti-fascist actions, in solidarity structures, in clashes with the state’s lapdogs, in guerrilla actions. At this difficult point in history Lambros will always be with us there where the barrier against the march of capitalist barbarism is built, where the dignity of human resistance is standing high, where a new world is shaping.
Lambros will always be with us in the struggles for the Social Revolution, for Anarchy.

… in the hard times you never abandon the city, in the good times you didn’t gain any interests, in the desperate times you didn’t fear anything…

LAMBROS FOUNTAS LIVES IN THE HEART OF EVERY FIGHTER

Act for freedom now!
