Athens, Greece: Grenade Attack Against the Russian Consulate by FAI / FRI Revenge Cell ‘Mikhail Zhlobitsky’
Friday, April 19th, 2019
We assume responsibility for the grenade assault on the Russian Consulate on Tzavella Street in Chalandri [suburb in Northern Athens] on March 22.
Each state seeks continuity, which is of particular importance both for its existence and for the preservation and expansion of its vital space. We define the vital space of a state structure as a concept that raises every economic and spatial interest. Applying this policy to us is what we commonly call imperialism. This policy is not a strategic choice of a state, but it is indistinguishable from its very existence. Automatically, each state applies or follows the imperialist policy of an alliance in that country. This position comes to overthrow the rhetoric of the holy fellowship of the smaller ones in dynamic states towards the more powerful ones, which the left has been trying to make for years and parts of the anarchist space embraces. Over the years, many alliances have been built up and, as a result, many skirmishes, depending on the interests at stake. Under the veil of these inter-axiomatic contrasts in combination with the economic and political conjuncture, discrepancies in the dynamics of each state are created or adjusted. Relationships between states have always been a dynamic condition that is modified on the subject rather than a static situation. (more…)

Today we have hung up four banners at various locations in The Hague, the Netherlands, in solidarity with the anarchists being prosecuted in Belgium. Hundreds of flyers were also thrown around.
From 2008, the Belgian State started a large investigation aiming at different struggles – but always without concessions – against detention centres, borders, prisons and the world of authority and exploitation. In its viewfinder: the anarchist library Acrata, anarchist and anti-authoritarian publications (Hors Service, La Cavale and Tout doit partir), dozens of flyers and posters, more than a hundred actions, attacks and sabotages…in other words the fight against Power in all its different expressions.
Initially charged with “participation to a terrorist group”, it is finally under the accusation of “criminal association” that 12 comrades will be on trial during the week of 29th April 2019. (more…)

Against All Authority and Repression!
In Turin and Trento, 14 people are accused of forming a subversive association, inciting crime, and possessing, manufacturing and transporting explosives to a public place. Furthermore, the operation “Scripta Manent”, where the public prosecutor’s office demands a total of 204 years in prison for the attacks of the Informal Anarchist Federation and the operation “Panico”, where 3 comrades are accused of having attacked a fascist library with an explosive device, is still running.
Those who have decided to oppose any domination in the social conflict must live with the constant uncertainty of sooner or later being held accountable for their own actions by the opponents of freedom and self-determination. The idea and the longing for a society liberated from exploitation and oppression cab then be nipped in the bud.
This is especially the case for the anarchist movement in Italy. This is being tackled by the state. The affected prisoners are to be buried alive in their cells with draconian sentences. Their accomplices and the solidarity environment unequivocally profess their permanent enmity against the regime with regard to their kidnapping. (more…)

June 11th: The international day of solidarity with Marius Mason and long-term anarchist prisoners. In the 15 years this tradition has been observed, June 11th has facilitated support and action inspired by imprisoned anarchists — from noise demonstrations outside of jails to letter-writing nights, from fundraisers to arson. Setting aside this day is one way of remembering anarchists who are serving long prison sentences, generating support for them, and inspiring solidarity actions.
Because social struggles phase in and out, this day is a way to make sure that our imprisoned comrades are not forgotten. Our lack of memory is partially a result of the techno-alienation of the larger culture we’re fighting against. But it’s also a product of the dynamics of the anarchist space. People become burnt out and the cycle of forgetting continues.
June 11th is a way of combating that amnesia, of trying to sustain a long-term memory in the anarchist space. Not only does this generate support for anarchists locked in the state’s prisons, it forces us to look back at what came before. Considering what previous generations did can both inspire us with ideas we’ve forgotten, and help us understand how our current practices came to be. (more…)

The time has come to elaborate further on our attack on Holosiivskyi district court in Kiev.
Among the commentaries on the attack, we’ve read more than once that some people don’t understand our motives. They don’t get how does Azat Miftakhov’s arrest in Moscow have anything to do with a courthouse in Kiev. We’ll try to explain, because it’s important to get this seemingly obvious message across.
Choosing the target:
We decided to go for a government court building. A lot of us have a good idea of what exactly is a courthouse today. Who among us hasn’t been in court? Who’s never had a friend or acquaintance on trial? Everyone felt this utter disdain for judicial robes, those who are fainter of heart – even fear. Why do we have to respect and accept them? Someone gave them the right to take our freedom and our lives, so now they sit there, up high, when you are languishing underneath, behind bars, with a watchdog in uniform hovering over you. (more…)

“Revolutionary change will not come as a singular event, nor an immediate exchange of power, but an ongoing struggle to free us all from the bonds of oppression and distribute power to communities of resistance. The illusion that a small group can seize state power and enact the will of the majority has dried up in the gulags, prisons, and killing fields of nation-states around the world. The Cantons of Rojava, a network of councils without the State, has introduced a new revolutionary paradigm… As we formulate our next steps, we harken to Rojava as a model. Just as it is grounded in the Kurdish liberation movement in Rojava, we here must ground ourselves in the black liberation movement against slavery.”
–Burn Down the American Plantation (What We’re Working Towards), pg 68-69, Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement
Revolutionary Greetings Comrades!
Did you really think for one moment that I was going to remain silent?
I began working with RAM because of Rojava. The Kurdish struggle struck home. Do you realize that these Sisters and Brothers in Northern Iraq and Syria helped fight and defeat ISIS? Yeah! That is right! These beautiful people, who Donald Trump wants to abandon, sacrificed their lives for the good of all. I was careful when I decided to speak out. Right around the time Trump made his announcement that the U.S. would pull out of Syria – George W. Bush had died. It wasn’t really good for me to say what I needed to say but now I am going to say it!! (more…)

“Tokata Antikarcelaria” en solidaridad con Marcelo Villarroel Sepúlveda en Peñalolén el 15/03/2019.
A 11 años de los hechos en San Martín de los Andes, Argentina
Solidaridad activa, Marcelo Villarroel Sepúlveda a la calle
La expropiación al Banco Security en el centro de Santiago el 18 de Octubre de 2007, la persecución mediática, policial y estatal que se desató contra varios compañeros subversivos cuando ellos tomaron la opción de fugarse para salvaguardar sus vidas fueron golpes que calaron hondo en toda una estructura que se muestra fuerte, intocable e invulnerable.
La detención de los compañeros Marcelo y Freddy el día 15 de Marzo de 2008 en San Martín de los Andes (Argentina) pone fin a su clandestinidad, momento en el que se encontraban con David Cid Aedo, quien es detenido, puesto en libertad y expulsado a Chile con posterioridad. En esta ocasión Marcelo y Freddy son acusados de porte ilegal de armas de guerra, por lo que son condenados a 3 años y 6 meses de prisión. (more…)

On the morning of March 12, 2019, the police reported on the attack on the court.
The day before, we – the anarchists of Kiev, held an action of solidarity with the anarchist Azat Miftakhov detained in Moscow.
Once in prison, in the clutches of the punitive system, our comrades should be aware of the support, which is usually expressed in the form of concerts, pickets, letters… But more important is the confidence that their cause continues to live, confidence in the justification and consistency of their struggle. We do not care about Azat’s involvement in explosives and other episodes, because anyone who calls himself an anarchist is already guilty, and deserves punishment from the point of view of the state.
The best we can do for them is to continue the struggle and resistance. To make it clear that repression is not only a reason to show solidarity out of a sense of comradely duty, but also to once again realize the need for the complete destruction of the state and all its manifestations. What could be better for a comrade than to realize that the repressions only radicalized and rallied the movement, and his being in captivity is not in vain and, whatever may happen to him, his cause will live until the complete victory of the social revolution.
This time we decided to use the method of attack, unpopular for this case, among anarchists – firing from a rifle firearm. We have made 15 shots at the windows of the judges of the Goloseevsky district court of the city of Kiev.
The angle and place of fire were not chosen by chance, we took all measures to avoid casualties among the not involved population. Only persons belonging to power structures, representatives of the authorities and conscious citizens who decided to prevent us could suffer. Accidental victims were excluded.
Freedom to Azat! Comrades anarchists, it’s time to move from protest to resistance! With solidarity and partisan greetings!

Montag 18.03.2019 16 Uhr (Kundgebung), Justizministerium, Mohrenstr. 37 in Mitte
Solidarität mit allen politischen und revolutionären Gefangenen!
DEVRİMCİ TUTSAKLARA ÖZGÜRLÜK!, الحرية للثوار في السجون
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. Die Gefangenen unserer Bewegungen dürfen nicht vergessen werden. (more…)

(Graz/Austria) – Car of Sodexo set on fire
In the darkness of the 6th of march we set a car of the company Sodexo in Graz on fire. Sodexo makes a profit with the deportation system by delivering shitty food to deportation centers. All companies that profit from this industry are our enemies and just deserve our hatred.
We feel connected to all accomplices who are fighting against the domination in this world.
Above all, those behind bars and those who support them, we want to show our revolutionary solidarity through this fire!
Through the walls we specifically send a burning hug to all recently detained anarchists in Turin, Trento and Rovereto. SILVIA, NICCOLO, BEPPE, ANTONIO, STECCO, RUPERT, AGNESE, SASHA, POZA, NICO, GIULIO tutti liberi!
We also send a burning greeting through the bars to Loić! We hope that you will feel supported by such acts in your unbending attitude.
For this action, we used fire accelerators that we filled into emptied beverage cans. We put the cans on the floor under the tires of the car. After 5 to 10 minutes, the tires burn and the car flares off.
Fire to Sodexo!
Fire to all cages!
(Graz/Austria) – Karre von Sodexo angezündet
In der Dunkelheit des 6.3. haben wir in Graz eine Karre der Firma Sodexo angezündet. Sodexo macht mit dem Ausschaffungssystem Profit indem es Abschiebeknäste mit schaebigem Essen versorgt. Alle Firmen die aus dieser Industrie Profit schlagen sind unsere Feinde und verdinen unseren Hass.
Allen Kompliz_innen die gegen die Herrrschaft dieser Welt kämpfen fühlen wir uns verbunden.
Vor allem jenen hinter Gittern und jenen die sie unterstützen möchten wir mit diesem Feuer unsere revolutionäre Solidarität zeigen!
Durch die Mauer senden wir speziell eine freurige Umarmung an alle kürzlich Inhaftierten Anarchist_innen in Turin, Trient und Rovereto. SILVIA, NICCOLO, BEPPE, ANTONIO, STECCO, RUPERT, AGNESE, SASHA, POZA, NICO, GIULIO tutti liberi!
Ebenfalls senden wir einen feurigen Gruss durch die Gitter an Loić! Wir hoffen das du dich durch solche Taten in deiner unbeugsamen Haltung unterstützt fühlst.
Für diese Aktion verwendeten wir Brandbeschleuniger den wir in entleerte Getränkedosen umfüllten. Die Dosen stellten wir auf den Boden unter die Reifen der Karre. Nach 5 bis 10 Minuten brennen die Reifen und die Karre fackelt ab.
Feuer für Sodexo!
Feuer allen Käfigen!

On the night of February 18, a bank ATM in the Usera neighborhood was set on fire. This small action is a sign of encouragement for Lisa, recently moved from Germany to Madrid; for the repression of the G20; the comrades arrested in Madrid on 30 October – accused of burning another Bankia ATM – and for the comrades in Italy, recently beaten in new operations against the anarchist environments in Turin and Trento, as well as for the comrades on trial in the Scripta Manet and Panic operations.
Let the Spanish and Italian states know that anarchist solidarity will not stop. And it will be formed by more than words. Sabotage is easy and simple. In the possibilities of its reproduction is its strength.
Also, this small action serves as a contribution to the week of agitation and propaganda against gentrification, spatial capitalism and in defense of squatting.
Freedom for Lisa, freedom for all!
Long Live Anarchy!

ABOUT THE REPRESSION AGAINST ANARCHISTS IN ITALY
Unfortunately, Italy has a long history of repressive operations against anarchists. Since Operation Marini in 90s, the waves of repression against comrades, which brought into jail many people with charges of terrorism or criminal association, were countless. Just to name a few of the biggest repressive operations: Cervantes, Croce Nera, Ardire, Mangiafuoco, Thor, Ixodidae, Nottetempo, Fuoriluogo…
These operations usually lead to several house raids in all Italy and to the arrest of several comrades who spend 1 or 2 years in pre-trial detention. Then they face trials with charges of ‘association’ and usually they are also accused of several direct actions for which the inquisitors never found any responsible. Sometimes the public engagement of these comrades in the anarchist struggle and their open expression of anarchist ideas (direct actions support, prisoners solidarity, running an anarchist magazine or website and so on) is the only evidence that the prosecutors bring into the court. For this reason, in the majority of the cases all the accused are later acquitted at the trial, but only after having spent many months or years in prison.
Besides these huge operations, there is a constant small-scale repression against local anarchist groups which are especially active on the territory, for example with struggles against police repression, evictions, detention centres for migrants, jails, gentrification, corporate interests… In these cases anarchists are constantly repressed with recurring trials and spend much of their time going in and out of prison, house arrest or other restrictions of their freedom. This kind of police strategy of trying to burn out comrades with the aim of destroying the local anarchist group happens in many cities but since many years has been especially strong in Torino.
