Call for an international week of solidarity with anarchists in Mexico facing repression (March 17-24, 2014)

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

From instintosalvaje:

This is a call for international solidarity with anarchists in Mexico facing repression, whether they are stuck behind the iron bars of prison cells or hiding out for their freedom.

The state of Mexico has turned its attention to the blossoming anarchist space that has been actively attacking the state’s defense apparatus, the very foundation upon which it stands. Now is the best time to draw inspiration from the anarchist space in Mexico, and to show some love to our imprisoned comrades. The history of Mexico is very rich, and cannot be summed up in a text such as this. What can be mentioned, however, are the efforts that have been made to live in conflict with the state.

This call comes at a time when the anarchist space in Mexico has been actively contributing to a struggle against power and domination. Attacks on police vehicles, banks, government buildings, and other symbols of power have led the Mexican state on a hunt to persecute those who have effectively threatened their foundation of social peace.

5E: End of the arraigo, terrorism case falls – Comrades now detained under charges of damages and attacks on public peace (Mexico)

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

from fuegoalascarceles
translated from Spanish by sabotagemedia

Yesterday February 17, marked the end of the 40 days of arraigo* decreed by the Attorney General of the Republic against our compañerxs Carlos López, Amelie Pelletier and Fallon Poisson.

During these forty days they tried to put together a case for Terrorism and Organized Crime against them, however, and despite intimidating and inquisitorial methods, they were unable to mount their case, so that at the end of the arraigo our compañerxs were released for lack of evidence. The Local Police of the Federal District has since detained them on charges of damages and attacks to public peace. (more…)

5E3 : Seattle solidarity demo at Mexican consulate for the arrested comrades accused of molotov attack (USA)

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

This afternoon, February 11th, there was a demonstration at the Mexican consulate in Seattle, in solidarity with Carlos Lopez and other prisoners of the Mexican state. A group of about 20 people chanted Carlos’ name as well as anti-border and anti-prison slogans, and a synopsis of the case and a statement by Carlos were read over a megaphone. There were two banners that said “Solidarity to all captured comrades” and “Solidaridad es mas fuerte que los carceles! Presxs a la calle!” We stood around and handed out leaflets to passers-by for about 15 minutes, then went inside the consulate and read Carlos’ statement again, and left and dispersed on our own accord.

Letter from Carlos – Ai Ferri Corti with their methods of domination (Mexico)

Saturday, February 1st, 2014

from CNA México
translated from Spanish by sabotagemedia

edit 3/2/14: revised and corrected

A big hug to all comrades!

I was very pleased to learn of the gestures of support from outside towards us three anarchist prisoners. We remain firm and strong despite the silly accusations made against us, and intimidating comments (here, they tell us that we’ll spend much time in prison) wanting to break our identity. They aren’t successful, because we are strong and have conviction.

Today they brought us to declare, expecting us to declare ourselves innocent or guilty. On this point I want to openly make something clear, personally I do not accept either of the two positions. Guilty? Innocent? That would give legitimacy to the stupid laws of the State, of which I do not recognize the authority. After all the State and its laws are just generators and regulators of privileges, injustices, exploitation and domination. (more…)

Comrade Mario Lopez arrested again (Mexico)

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

Update: Mexico City: Anarchist Mario López ‘Tripa’ free on bail

On January 20th, 2014 our comrade Mario Lopez was arrested while he appeared in court, as he does every week, to sign in as part of the conditions imposed for his release on bail. At first he was informed that the Attorney General’s Office of the Republic was demanding his presence in order to ask him questions about an ongoing investigation. After being questioned he was notified that he would be arrested for a warrant for Violation of Federal Law of Firearms and Explosives for the events of June 27, 2012 (when Mario was first imprisoned: http://en.contrainfo.espiv.net/2012/07/01/mexico-recent-information-about-the-anarchist-comrade-mario-lopez-hernandez/) [+ see here.].

He was transferred to the Eastern Penitentiary in Mexico City. At this time this is all the information we have.

Mario’s arrest takes place within the context of a witch-hunt of anarchists by the Mexican government. We have little doubt that our comrade, now in jail, will face more accusations by the state in an attempt to frame him. Persecution against anarchism continues, and for that reason it’s more important than ever to strengthen our solidarity.

Free Mario Lopez!
Free all anarchist prisoners!
Neither guilty, nor innocent!

Lettre ouverte de Carlos Lopez, prisonier anarchiste accusé de terrorisme (Mexique)

Saturday, January 18th, 2014

See here for soli-website & here for English translation of this letter

Avec beaucoup d‘énergie et de rage, j’écris ces quelques lignes pour faire part de mon état actuel concernant mon enlèvement par le gouvernement du District fédéral et je crois que c’est maintenant le temps de parler un peu de certains aspects. Ma situation politique n’a pas encore été décidée. Ainsi, pour des raisons évidentes, je n’irai pas trop dans les détails afin de ne pas compromettre ma défense. Dans la nuit du dimanche 5 janvier, les camarades Fallon, Amelie et moi, avont été arrêté-e-s par des membres de la police en tant que suposé-e-s responsables d’attaques avec cocktails Molotov qui ont eu au Ministère des Communications et des Transports, ainsi que de l’incendie de plusieurs voitures d’un concessionnaire NISSAN, accusation qui tombe sous juridiction fédérale et du droit commun respectivement. Jusqu’à aujourd’hui,mercredi 8 janvier, on nous accuse de terrorisme, de crime organisé et de dommages à la propriété d’autrui. (more…)

Urgente: Detienen a 3 compas – Amelie Pillierst, Fallon Poisson & Carlos López Martin (Mexico)

Friday, January 10th, 2014

Detienen a 3 compas acusadxs de Daños.

A diferencia de lo que reporto la jornada:

http://www.jornada.unam.mx/ultimas/2014/01/06/reportan-explosiones-en-insurgentes-sur-hay-tres-detenidos-1661.html

Ayer Domingo 5 de Enero, alrededor de las 10 de la noche dos núcleos de individuxs vestidxs de negro atacaron con PIEDRAS Y COCTELES MOLOTV las instalaciones de la Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transportes y una concesionaria NISSAN causando daños en los inmuebles y varios automóviles.

En el acto contra la SCT, nos reportan que los policias federales que resguardaban el edificio dispararon primeramente hacia el cielo como forma intimidatoria y despues dispararon en repetidas ocaciones al cuarpo de lxs compas sin resultar nadie herido.

A raíz de esto la PGJ-DF reporto tres personas detenidas, ellxs son:

Fallon Poisson (de origen Canadiense)
Amelie Pillierst (de origen Canadiense)
Carlos López Martin (de origen Mexicano)

Lxs tres son compañerxs anarquistas participantes en varios proyectos e iniciativas de afinidad. (more…)

Phoenix Project #9: 'Anti-Civilization Faction – ELF/FAI' takes responsibility for several explosive attacks against banks & church (Mexico)

Wednesday, January 1st, 2014

from contrainfo, transl wos [pictures on waronsociety]:

From individual initiative, without bases of support or complex revolutionary rhetoric/theories, without complex destructive devices WE ATTACK! A Unique and Annihilating Attack, Belonging to itself and without any moral, ideological or material condition.

From individual initiative, we practice informality in this war that we assume as inevitable, and which we take part in through affinity. The fires and explosions in this act are consistent with the iconoclastic desire in every wild heart that associates egoistically. (more…)

Informal Days: International Anarchist Symposium – Comrade Gustavo Rodríguez disappeared and deported (Mexico)

Wednesday, January 1st, 2014

Compañerxs, we´ll try to be as brief but objective as possible.

Since the evening of the 29th of December – the last day of the Informal Days: International Anarchist Symposium – up until today, the anarchist compañero Gustavo Rodríguez Romero has disappeared.

On the evening of the 29th, at approximately 7:30pm, Gustavo left the Che Guevara Auditorium alone headed in the direction of the Copilco metro station in order to later meet up with his partner and begin their return trip home. This never happened as Gustavo never arrived.

Five minutes after Gustavo left the auditorium, a compañera who was still at the event received a phone call from Gustavo, however only strange noise were heard, and after a few seconds the call dropped out. Given the strange call, the compañera called back on repeated occasions but without answer, and eventually assumed that later he would be in contact as had been arranged earlier. (more…)

Alfredo Bonanno o el anarquismo de praxis del siglo XXI (Mexico)

Alfredo Bonanno o el anarquismo de praxis del siglo XXI

“Las prácticas de acción directa son ahora el corolario de este bagaje conceptual remozado. Cara a cara contra el enemigo, sin mediaciones ni gestorías: he ahí la divisa y el emblema de una práctica de intención, orientación y potencialidad anarquista”.
Rafael Spósito (Daniel Barret)

Hace exactamente cuatro años, tres meses y 22 días, recibí la llamada de un entrañable compañero comunicándome una lamentable noticia: el querido Alfredo María Bonanno, había sido detenido tras una expropiación fallida en la ciudad de Trikala al norte de Grecia. Hoy, he tenido una breve conversación vía telefónica con el compa Alfredo que me produjo la misma indignación e impotencia que aquella trágica llamada.

En medio de la gritería y las expresiones altisonantes de los represores que le ordenaban apagar el teléfono, me informó que las autoridades migratorias le habían impedido el ingreso al territorio dominado por el Estado mexicano, declarándolo “persona non grata” por su presunta “peligrosidad” y “antecedentes penales”, motivo por el que lo han deportado a Argentina. Pese al poco tiempo que pudimos hablar sentí en sus escuetas palabras la fortaleza de un irreductible. Lo primero que le pregunté es cómo estaba de salud y me contestó que bien. Enfurecido, lo único que atiné a decirle es que lamentaba mucho la decisión de estos mierdas hijos de perra y me respondió optimista, con la serenidad y la condición reflexiva que lo caracteriza: “es lógico que esto nos pase”.
