We learn of the arrest of anarchists comrades Natascia, Beppe and Robert, which took place on 21 May, 2019, and was carried out by the ROS of carabinieri as part of a repressive operation called “Prometeo” (“Prometheus”). Some searches have also been carried out. The regime’s media report that the main accusation is of “attack with the purpose of terrorism or subversion”, as they are considered responsible for sending three bomb packages arrived in June 2017 to the p. m. Rinaudo and Sparagna (the latter is the public prosecutor in the trial for the “Scripta manent” operation) and to Santi Consolo, at the time director of the DAP (“Department of Penitentiary Administration”) in Rome.
Waiting for more information we report the only address we know of:

On the morning of May 13, a new antiterrorist operation against anarchism struck in Tetuán (Madrid).
The anarchist space ‘The Ambush’ [La Emboscada] and another squatter home were searched by members of the brigada de información [political police/special branch] and a squad of the anti-riot division. The operation ended with two people arrested.
In our minds are the operations of Pandora, Piñata, Ice and the operation that still keeps Lisa behind bars. More recently the European police operations in response to the revolt in Hamburg against the G20, or the arrests of last October 29, 2018 in Madrid…
In short: the blows of the State against the struggle. Faced with this, affection, solidarity, networks of affinity and the desire to never give up are weapons against fear and repression.
Stay tuned for more information and calls.
Neither innocent nor guilty!
Solidarity and struggle!
Anti-Pipeline Graffiti Raid Update: VPD claiming $500,000 in damages not including graffiti (Canada)

On June 3rd, 2014, Vancouver Police staged a “guns-drawn” raid against a house of known indigenous and anarchist opponents to the energy policies of the central government and its corporate sponsors.
The ostensible reason for the raid was given as the search for graffiti materials believed to be tied to an ongoing “no pipelines” tagging campaign. One person was arrested, but released without charges or conditions.
The Vancouver Police Department returned on June 12 at around 9am with a warrant to take a DNA blood sample from the accused. The accused was again released without charges. There has been no info on the result of the DNA blood sample nearly 5 months after. (more…)

It is almost a month. Rumours about (paid) paramilitary who will attack the squatting village of Pandang Raya. They are people hired by Goman Waisa, a conglomerate who have land conflict with the squatting inhabitants. During daily basis the people have been terrorised by the planning of execution by using paid paramilitary to evict the people. This strategy is used as to avoid police participation after a defeat (of the police force) a year a go during the eviction. At that time, the small quantities of Pandang Raya inhabitants were successful in defending their land and attacking the police. (more…)

Gabriel Pombo da Silva’s cell in the Aachen prison has been raided. All of his CDs, DVDs and postcards with political slogans were taken away. Furthermore, they took his free weights (which were approved), as well as his typewriter. In addition, personal photos were taken from him. No specific reasons were given. His lawyer has been informed.
Gabriel is very angry and would appreciate support.
Write to him:
Gabriel Pombo da Silva
Krefeld Str 251
Note: Gabriel is a long-term anarchist prisoner who escaped from the Spanish prison system, only to be caught on the German border after an attempted armed escape from pursuing border police after the comrades denied to be controlled (So-called ‘Aachen 4 case’).

Update 30.4.11: 1 comrade remains inside the cells in Bristol from Telepathic Heights, accused of manufacture + possession of molotovs + making threats with the items. Others arrested that night have received charges or are on bail, whilst a few have already been before the judge receiving low penalties.
April 21, 2011. 10pm. A riot starts after a 160 strong multi-regional police force coordinated assault shuts down a district and breaks down the door of a squat named ‘Telepathic Heights’ in Bristol.
The cops then violently harass local people and get attacked in return. Telepathic Heights is in the busy cultural area of Stokes Croft, Bristol, where there are many bars, cafes, squats, community projects, etc. 300 people fight the police for hours and hours in response to the police occupation of the neighbourhood. A corporate supermarket is looted and destroyed, whilst none of the other (independently-owned) shops on the streets are touched in the disturbance.
Everyone is in the streets. Barricades are lit, the cops face an anger that has not been seen for a long time. It seems like it is just beginning. Bristol has been burning now for some time… it will be a hot year of discontent.
9 people are arrested: 5 from the street, and 4 from Telepathic Heights accused of possession and manufacture of molotovs.
