Solidarity T-Shirt for Anarchist Comrades in the Philippines

Saturday, July 25th, 2020

Received from our comrades in the Philippines:

We are propagating against the existence of police authority and calling to build a much better community. In this pandemic era, we experienced the harsh condition, the neglect and the incapability of the government to handle health crisis. They’ve given much support on deploying police in uniform to fight the spread of Covid 19 virus and passed Anti-Terrorism Law which we see is inappropriate in this kind of situation.

We are calling to abolish police.
Build a just and better community without authority.

Please help us to share this and support our cause.

Athens, Greece: Incendiary attack to a Ford car dealership

Monday, July 20th, 2020

Besieged bodies among the concrete, between the cameras eyes, crossing daily life with careful but daring steps, moved by an ethic forged by negations.

We are folks that woke up from the social lethargy, having as weapon our solidarity to the fighting individuals towards the world. We want to be the crack that will join the others, destroying a system that represents injustice and “deadly injuries”.

So, at the night of 7/7/2020, we chose to plant four incendiary devices to the Ford car dealership of Sfakianakis company, resulting to three burnt-down vehicles and a destroyed showcase. Our target was totally not random, as this specific company equips the state apparatus with vehicles, and also the moment of our attack coincides the uprising in USA, the homeland of Ford.

By that we choose to be the aroma of night-flower that bungs the nostrils of the decay, and we want this smell to break every authoritarian nose, to close every mouth that pukes shit, to cut every hand that points at our bodies full of racism, homophobia and sexism.

24-27 Sept – International Gathering for Animal Liberation – Hambach Forest (Germany)

Sunday, July 19th, 2020

INTERNATIONAL CALL!!

JOIN US IN THE HAMBACHER FOREST FOR A WEEKEND OF DISCUSSION, WORKSHOPS AND REVOLT FOR ANIMAL LIBERATION

24-27 SEPTEMBER 2020

After months of dystopian weirdness and unprecedented state-repression imposed on the basis of corona, borders are opening up and rage is exploding around the world. But with potentially no radical anti-speciesist gatherings in Europe this summer to contribute to the clash, we felt the need to set a rallying point!

The Hambacher Forest is an ongoing focal point for anti-capitalism and radical ecology on the continent – let’s find each other there and take the opportunity to share skills and perspectives on how to confront human supremacy in the current context. In continuation with the anarchist animal liberation gatherings which took place in Marseille (2016), Bristol (2017), Bilbao (2018) and Rome (2019), we aim to connect those who incorporate the fight alongside other animals and their habitats into a broader struggle against all hierarchies – a struggle for total liberation.

A list of workshops – both hands-on and more theoretical – is soon to be announced. We also want to invite you to propose your own, whether over the coming weeks or more spontaneously once the event begins. Other contributions in the form of literature, stalls and whatever else are also warmly invited.

Remember, this event is:
– FREE, including vegan food for the duration of the event
– SELF-ORGANISED, so if you see a job it’s yours!
– SQUATTED, taking place in an illegal land occupation
– ANTI-OPPRESSION, so fuck right off if you have racist/sexist/heterosexist/cissexist/speciesist or otherwise bigoted views + behaviour
– IN A FOREST, so be ready to camp and respect the ecosystem

More info about what to expect and how to get there will be released on the following website later on. You can also find translations of this callout there, soon to include German, French, Italian, Spanish, and more: www.forestantispedays.noblogs.org

Feel free to contact us with questions or whatever here:

Tulungagung, Indonesia: Solidarity with the Makassar and Tangerang Anarchist Prisoners

Sunday, July 19th, 2020

As anarchists we believe, direct action and insurrection is the soul of anarchism itself, while prison and humiliation are the consequences of every direct action we take.

If humiliation is the answer to every direct action, then pacifism is the answer right? Unfortunately not, giving up on pacifism means letting our necks stepped and getting stepped again!

Our comrades in Tangerang and Makassar have decided to fight back against state oppression and must now be locked up in prison, and this is our duty to ensure they are not alone! We did a little decoration in an unused building a few days ago as our solidarity, let’s make and spread solidarity!

Our hugs and love for Makassar and Tangerang anarchist prisoners. Fire for prison! No anarchy without abolition of prisons and police!

Action Days 31/07 & 01/08 – Den Haag, Netherlands

Sunday, July 19th, 2020

On Friday the 31st of July and Saturday 1st of August people will take action in The Hague, Netherlands, for the right to housing and the city. We invite you all to take part during these two days to struggle against gentrification, precarity and capitalism.

https://woonactiedagen.wordpress.com/

INTERNATIONAL

We call on international solidarity and participation as capitalism and gentrification, capitalism in urban areas, know no borders, so why should we?

Displacement of people from cities and rising rents is a world wide trend. In the trendy neighbourhoods of Berlin, to the housing projects in Chile built on stolen land, in the streets of Exarcheia and parks in Istanbul a social struggle is being waged. People are (re)asserting their right to the city, and their right to life and self-determination.
Wherever we may be, we are not alone, new pockets of resistance to capitalist domination, and its multiple oppressive dynamics, are being formed everyday across the globe. We will manifest our resistance in a few weeks time and we invite you to join us! (more…)

Berlin – Bank smashed for Dervenion56, Liebig34 and Rigaer94 (Germany)

Tuesday, July 14th, 2020

Solidarity means attack – no eviction remains without response

Today (10/7/2020), as a first response to the raid and evictions in the front building of Rigaer94, we attacked a branch of the Berliner Sparkasse in Lichtenberg with stones and destroyed the windows.

The raid and eviction are the beginning of the planned elimination of various projects in the coming months. In addition to an attack on one of our spaces, yesterday’s raid concerned the extension of the siege in the northern district of Friedrichshshain and the attempt to prepare the framework for the eviction of Liebig34. This will not remain without consequences. With our action we call for
decentralized actions against their plans. We do not want to wait for Day X, the phase of evictions has already begun and we must give a strong, collective response on the streets.

In doing so, we are joining the call of the Koukaki Squats in Athens in order to enter into dialogue with the comrades there who are facing similar challenges. The evacuation of Dervenion56 in Exarchia was the occasion for this international call [1]. (more…)

We are calling for international actions in solidarity with the Squats. Make the Greek state, the Greek capital and its partners regret the choice they made to attack the movement and its spaces in Greece. To defend Dervenion 56 and all squats,to prepare the ground for the coming social uprising.

On Friday 26/6, in Exarchia, the Greek state evacuated and sealed Dervenion 56 squat and the building at Dervenion 52. An immediate gathering of solidarity was held at Exarxia Square for several hours.In the evening of the same day, a solidarity march was held with the participation of 300 people. The march ended at Dervenion squat, barricades were set up around the perimeter and then comrades broke the concrete blocks of shame.

Buenos Aires, Argentina: Call to Action from the Fanny Kaplan Antagonistic Cell (FAI-FRI)

Tuesday, June 30th, 2020

Buenos Aires, Argentina. June 2020

“…Anarchism is either illegal or it’s not anarchism. That is its essence and its meaning. Its nature. For the same reason, it sometimes seems so obvious to us that we forget to insist punctiliously on the anti-authoritarian and therefore, the consequently anti-systemic character of anarchism. Rabidly anti-systemic! We are against all authority. That is our maxim… That we are against the system of domination, that we are fighting against the social order as a whole, we are objecting to its order and the laws that support it. All laws have been and will be made to give legal support to oppression and domination…”

Gustavo Rodriguez

This is an appeal to our friends, to our comrades, like-minded and not so like-minded. A warm invitation to practice beautiful disobedience and take back our lives. A call to conflict against all that exists here and now, assuming the consequences of a life at war.

For anyone who lives in the territory dominated by the Argentine State, or almost anywhere in the world, currently there is a state of alert in the face of the current situation. The appearance and expansion of covid-19 quickly became a global problem, and while we do not want to question its existence or veracity, we want to show how the “epidemiological outbreak” unmasks the harmfulness of the class society and neoliberal capitalism maintained by the States its main economic groups.

Urgent Call for Solidarity: Imprisoned Anarchist Comrade Eric King Assaulted by Guard at FCI Englewood (U$A)

Friday, June 26th, 2020

On June 18th Eric was taken into the showers while shackled and attacked. The guard took the metal detection wand and swung at each of his ankles and then when he would lift his leg this officer would swing at the other. The guard then picked Eric up and dropped him on his head onto the concrete in the shower. He woke up after loosing consciousness for 10 seconds thinking they were pouring water on his face. But it was his own blood.

Eric was transported to Swedish Medical Center and was given 6 stitches and was diagnosed with a moderate to severe concussion. They hospital would not give him the results of the scan or release it to his family or lawyer because they told him “he is government property”.

The reality is folks have been fighting for over a month to be able to get an expert in to assess Eric. We believe he is suffering from a traumatic brain injury after officers at FCI Florence kicked him in the head for 5 minutes in August of 2018. We were so hopeful that we were going to be able to get help for him and see where he is at with the mixture of trauma and brain injury he has been struggling with. His memory has been affected as well as many other aspects of his life. Officers at FCI Englewood know this. They knew that we were trying to get a medical expert in because of a head injury concern… and then they dropped him on a concrete fucking floor on his head in the bathroom while Shackled up.

Italia: Attacco incendiario polizia locale Genova. 24/25 giugno 2020

EN | Genoa, Italy: Incendiary Attack Against a Police Vehicle Depot in Marassi

I danni della globalizzazione sono arrivati anche in occidente e ci siamo trovati a farne I conti direttamente. La reazione non è stata certo in una prospettiva di soluzione delle cause, bensì un ulteriore passo veloce verso il progresso ed un intensificarsi del dominio tecno-scientifico, della trasformazione e del rapido adeguamento delle logiche di autoritarismo e profitto.
Anche in tempi di pandemia il governo ha garantito gli affari delle case farmaceutiche e dei signori della guerra. Attraverso le politiche capitaliste gli Stati hanno continuato la produzione industriale a scapito dei lavoratori e le operazioni militari a scapito di intere popolazioni.
Anche nel porto di Genova hanno continuato a transitare navi cariche di carri armati e altri armamenti, dirette verso gli Emirati Arabi.

Lo Stato ha chiarito quali sono I suoi interessi, molto lontani dai reali bisogni degli individui, ed in continuità con la politica tecno-industriale:
imposizione di tecnologie nocive come il 5G e controllo sociale di massa (realizzato con la militarizzazione dei territori, l’accellerazione tecnologica e l’utilizzo di vari mezzi come droni, GPS, motoscafi, elicotteri e vari progetti “smart”). (more…)

‘Adesso Che Avete Paura’

Friday, June 19th, 2020

ADESSO CHE AVETE PAURA.

E’ sempre più chiaro ormai come il modello economico dominante, sacrifichi alla legge del profitto e della competizione esasperata qualsiasi espressione di libertà individuale, uguaglianza e solidarietà sociale.
Di fronte a tutto ciò, numerosi sono gli scenari di rivolta che esplodono e si ramificano in ogni parte del mondo.
Dal confederalismo democratico curdo, ai territori autonomi zapatisti, da Hong Kong al Chile.

In questi ultimi mesi, il modo in cui la pandemia da Covid è stata gestita ha ulteriormente amplificato e reso evidente la disuguaglianza tra chi il sistema lo subisce e chi pretende di controllarlo.
Questo ha reso più estrema la tensione sociale e il suo potenziale esplosivo.

La morte di George Floyd, di per sé un evento non eccezionale nel contesto della brutalità di un sistema che giornalmente uccide e devasta, vissuto nel momento del lock down globale a causa della pandemia, ha scatenato a livello internazionale un’esplosione di rabbia che si è manifestata in molteplici forme: dall’assedio dei distretti di polizia, ai saccheggi di quei beni a cui molt* non hanno più o non hanno mai avuto la possibilità di accedere, alle grandi manifestazioni di piazza.

Italy: “What International?” – Interview with Anarchist Prisoner Alfredo Cospito [Part 3]

Friday, June 19th, 2020

The following interview is the 3rd part in an ongoing dialogue between anarchist comrade Alfredo Cospito, who is currently imprisoned at Ferrara Prison, and the editors of the Italian anarchist newspaper Vetriolo [Vitriol]. As far as we know, the first part of the interview has not been made available in English, however part two was translated by the Abolition Media Worldwide comrades in April 2019. Vetriolo have published the interview in parts, and have plans to publish the interview in its entirety in a forthcoming publication. We hope that we have captured the original spirit of the interview with our translation, however we are acutely aware of the possibility that some errors may have been made and we welcome any correspondence regarding any errors that may need correcting. To request copies of Vetriolo, they can be contacted via vetriolo[at]autistici.org

In some of your recent writings you have wanted to open a debate on: action and affinity groups, individual actions, claims of responsibility, ways to informally organize oneself among anarchists and propaganda through direct action. There are many different experiences that reach the present day, many and diverse within the different tensions of anarchism. We do not believe that there is, for the anarchism of action, an unavailability or impossibility with respect to the current historical context. Anarchists, in different ways and in every age, have always acted “here and now”. We would like to ask you, evaluating these experiences and different ways of acting and organizing in a horizontal and anti-authoritarian way: could one say that there is, especially in Italy, an ideological prejudice against “informal organization”, “anarchist groups”, and “claims of responsibility”? Equally, is the debate, which often ends up in mockery for its own sake, far from being able to confirm absolute validity or theoretical-practical evidence regarding “reproducibility, informality, anonymity”, in the Italian context conditioned by methodical, functional and a priori productive calculations, in a distorted logic of “factions”?

The “ideological” prejudice against informal organisation here is nothing new. Although there is no doubt that some concretizations of informal practice are more acceptable to “classical” anarchist organising than others. The “small” reproducible, unclaimed actions against structures of domination, without initials of any kind, create fewer problems than actions that endanger the lives of men and women in power, especially if these are claimed with initials that have a constancy over time. The former compared to the latter are more acceptable to the “movement” for the simple reason that they give rise to less intense repression by the State. The rejection of insurrectionism or informal experiences such as FAI/FRI by “classical” anarchism is almost always motivated as an “ethical” rejection of violence and specifically of certain actions (bomb attacks, arson attacks, parcel bombs, knee-cappings, expropriations…).
