Athens, Greece: Anti-terrorist operation leads to three comrades arrested and one wanted

Tuesday, November 12th, 2019

IT/EN

On November 9th, 2019, an anti-terrorist operation led to two arrests, charging them with robbery and involvement in a terrorist organization. At the same time, authorities are looking for another comrade in order to give him the same accusations, while arresting a close female comrade on lesser charges.

FREEDOM TO THE THREE COMRADES CHARGED.
STRENGTH TO THE COMRADE WANTED FOR THE SAME CASE.

Message from anarchist comrade Vangelis Stathopoulos from the GADA central anti-terrorist headquarters:

Once again I find myself in GADA accused of acts that do not concern me and in fact it is because I have not stopped fighting against the state and power. The scenarios elaborated by the counter-terrorism do not bother me. I will continue to fight steadfast either outside or inside the prisons.

USA: A Message from Eric King – Imprisoned anarchist comrade

ES | ESTADOS UNIDOS: UN MENSAJE DE ERIC KING – COMPAÑERO ANARQUISTA ENCARCELADO

October 8th, 2019

Here are the things I hear most:

What are you doing, we heard this, I don’t think so, we’ll see, maybe, Chow!, Count!, who’s mess is this, who’s shaking the bars, lights out, mail call, rec call, you want a shower, clean this mess, nope not today, not happening, I’ll check on it, put in a cop-out request, doubt it, quit trashing my tier, cuff up…

Sometimes I spend hours pondering revenge fantasies, most time I think of my wife and kiddos. Fourteen months in segregation minus 4 days at Grady County, plus 6 at McCreary. We haven’t been in the same room since August 11th, 2018. Now these bastards drag me back to Colorado to force more time, and have the audacity to block our family visits, due to a bad check from 15 years ago. Maybe people who read this will be disgusted by this news.

That said, I’m hurting friends. Being attacked sucks. Being charged with new federal charges for that attack is sickening. Never forget how horrible these people are. This system exists from the top to the bottom which is why reform is such a joke. You don’t reform cancer, you destroy it. We must destroy this system.

Until all are free,

RIP Tom Manning & Willem, never forgotten

Debrief of the solidarity actions from the assembly in solidarity with the insurrection in Chile (Athens, Greece)

Tuesday, November 5th, 2019

Wednesday 30/10 we did an intervention to the central offices of METKA EGN to show solidarity in the insurrection in Chile. We choose to intervene in this company with a banner texts and flyers to give emphasis to the role that this Greek company has also in South America with a plan to impose a cruel neoliberal agenda and degrade the lives of the people in Chile with the investments in energy and exploitation of the land.

Thursday 31/10 we wanted to do a microphonic in Propylaia but because of the rain it was cancelled but we manage 40 comrades to make an intervention and open the bars of the subway so everybody can pass freely while we were sharing texts and flyers.

Friday 1/11 we did a gathering at the embassy of Chile and after a demo back to Exarchia.The pre gathering was in the subway station of Evaggelismos were we shared texts after a while 100 comrades moved with order to Vasilisis Sofia street to approach as close as we can to the embassy that was full of cops. We stand there for one hour and in the way back the riot police was following us and they were provocative trying to find reason to attack us.We manage to finish the demo in Exarchia shouting slogans in the way. In the demo participated also comrades from the popular front of Turkey that they had gathering in the embassy of Turkey.

From the 19th of October, the Chilean state has been overrun by thousands of insurrectionary peoples who have occupied the streets and squares of the country. The mass demonstrations, originally due to the raising of ticket prices for public transport, developed into a generalised insurrection which sweeps everything in its path. (more…)

Update/Report about my arrest as a student / minor following the intervention at Athens radio station 9.84 (Greece)

Thursday, October 31st, 2019

I announce and report this incident regarding the violence and in general the mistreatment I have experienced as a student, as a reminder of the usual and repetitive behavior of the Greek police against any who struggle against the State. I speak as a fighter and at the same time as a student, and I address every student who opposes the state, fights against it, is imprisoned, or loses their school and neighborhood because they are a migrant. The mistreatment I received was directly related to the fact that the cops had the ability to separate me and keep me alone because of my age.

On Tuesday 1 October, together with a body of about 25 people, we made an intervention at the Gazi Municipal Radio Station “Athens 9.84”, and in consultation with them without any dispute, we played a text about the evictions of squats, and state repression including against migrants. After playing the text on the “air”, we went out and received an attack by many cops, which resulted in 8 prosecutions.

The cop who took me did the classic violent assault by the Greek police on me, handcuffed me, and carried me away with rude and sexist comments on my face. Inside the cop car, whilst handcuffed I was sexually harassed with quite vulgar sexist comments. One of the two put his hand back on my leg trying to touch me and me while the car was running incredibly fast so the risk of me trying to resist was high. (more…)

Chile: ¿A dónde vamos? ¡Hacia la incertidumbre y la permanente conflictividad!

Monday, October 28th, 2019

Algunas palabras desde y por la revuelta de octubre

“A partir de cierto punto no hay retorno.
Ese es el punto que hay que alcanzar.”

Franz Kafka

La indómita protesta por parte de estudiantes secundarios contra el alza del pasaje del tren subterráneo y la inmediata respuesta represiva fue el escenario propicio para que días más tarde la guerra social se dejara vislumbrar con una explícita crudeza.

La dinámica del conflicto fue rápida, impredecible e instintiva. El malestar enfocado principalmente contra el transporte público subterráneo se generalizó y comenzó a explotar, visibilizarse, reconocer formas de combate estallando–literalmente-en cada esquina de Santiago. El 18 de Octubre del 2019 un contexto de revuelta generalizada se desató por toda la capital; barricadas y enfrentamientos se sucedían en cualquier momento y en cualquier lugar. Distintos símbolos, estructuras e infraestructuras del poder fueron atacadas a lo largo de toda la ciudad, y prontamente de todo el país. El orden se resquebrajaba y la transgresión inundaba todas las calles, de pronto los sujetos se aglomeraban y atacaban lo que siempre consideraron sus cadenas. No hay planificación, sino espontaneidad que sabe reconocer claramente a su enemigo: El Estado, el capital y sus fuerzas represivas. Los objetivos siniestrados o saqueados son el mejor de los ejemplos: Ministerios, instituciones financieras, empresas depredadoras de la tierra, grandes bodegas almacenadoras de mercancía y comida, y un largo etcétera.

La violencia revolucionaria se ha validado y desatado en los más amplios aspectos de lxs oprimidxs. (more…)

Saturday, October 26th, 2019

DESDE CHILE: UNA MIRADA ANÁRQUICA AL CONTEXTO DE REVUELTA Y REPRESIÓN

Actualmente en Chile se vive una situación de Estado de Emergencia decretado por el gobierno derechista de Sebastián Piñera producto del estallido de una revuelta que explotó el día viernes 18 de octubre de 2019.

Este texto nace con la necesidad comunicar a compañerxs de diversas latitudes del mundo la situación que actualmente se vive en en este territorio.

Desde una mirada anárquica se comparten acá lo que consideramos algunos puntos principales para dar conocer y aportar a entender el momento actual.

PRELUDIO: LA JUVENTUD EN LUCHA Y LA CHISPA QUE ENCENDIÓ LA HOGUERA.

Luego de una semana de evasiones masivas al servicio de trenes subterráneos, protagonizadas principalmente por estudiantes secundarios durante el mes de octubre ante el alza del valor en los pasajes del transporte, se propagaron por diversos puntos de la ciudad de Santiago múltiples episodios de desobediencia individual y colectiva que derivaron en destrucción de infraestructura y enfrentamientos con las fuerzas policiales dentro y fuera de las estaciones del tren subterráneo.

International Week in Solidarity with the Revolt in Chile

Saturday, October 26th, 2019

24 OCTOBER TO 1 NOVEMBER. INTERNATIONAL WEEK IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE REVOLT IN CHILE.

”Far from the specialists of solidarity who turn it into a jocular farce of humanism and victimization mutilating all our combative characteristics, anarchist solidarity does not fit into rules or infallible recipes.

The essence of solidarity is the continuation and sharpening of the anarchist offensive with every means, from a sacrilegious and aggressive poster to an action with explosive or shots against the organs of the existent. Solidarity transmits the solid message that everything continues and, as other compas have already said before us” :

“Solidarity between anarchists is not just words…”

The news about the revolt in the territory dominated by the State of Chile has travelled this globalised world, not only from last Friday October 18 and the military’s presence in the streets with the respective curfew, but also from the constant putting in practice that the anarchists have managed to uphold throughout the years, standing firm against long sentences and even death of comrades in offensive actions.

Today democracy is showing its face without masks, that face that the prisoners and the populations have to suffer every day, the face of torture, rape and death around the corner, today the State is extending and launching orders to its minions, police and military have to fulfill the functions for which they were programmed, now bluntly, and the revolt responds with dignity, stones, incendiary devices, looting and incipient news of armed attacks against police stations.

From outside this territory we feel the air of rebellion and it calls us back to solidarity action with the weapons that we know how to forge, with the offensive in all the imaginative ways and the conviction that the social war transcends every border, physical and mental.

LET’S BREAK DOWN THE MEDIA FENCE!
LET’S EXTEND THE BLACK INTERNATIONAL AGAINST EVERY FORM OF AUTHORITY.

“Hardship has Tempered me and Turned my Mind to Steel” – Letter by radical long-term prisoner John Bowden about his parole process (UK)

Friday, October 25th, 2019

The situation with my parole remains bizarrely uncertain, and it has now become obvious that it is not the parole board that is deciding matters but the Justice Ministry itself. Unfortunately my Judicial Review fell at the first hurdle after my initial optimism when the first judge to consider my case decided there did appear to be a breach of proper legal procedure in the way the Justice Ministry refused to refer my case back to the parole board when the board’s supposed dissatisfaction with the length of time the probation service had arranged for me to spend in a parole hostel if released was put to rest when the hostel concerned informed the board that they were prepared to accept me for as long as was considered necessary.

The judge then gave the Justice Ministry 21 days to present a defence as to why I remained in prison still when there was clearly no real public protection justification for my continued imprisonment. 21 days later the Justice Ministry presented a “defence” claiming that it wasn’t just the issue of a long-term hostel place that had influenced the parole board’s decision to deny my release, but also my “aggressive anti-authority authority”, which it was unable to give any specific examples of in terms of breaches of discipline reports, etc. This was a blatant moving of the goalposts and unfortunately the different judge this time to consider the case, and who had obviously been “briefed” about my prison history and politicisation, swallowed the re-manufactured bullshit to justify my continued imprisonment and dismissed my action.

International call to action by Militant Campaign ‘Fight4Rojava’ (Kurdistan, Syria, Turkey)

Friday, October 11th, 2019

In the afternoon of 9 October the fascist Turkish occupation army and its Islamist murder gangs started their war of aggression against the liberated areas of Rojava. With massive artillery fire and widespread air raids on towns and villages along the Syrian-Turkish border, the front was opened and ground invasion began.

The fascist AKP-MHP regime is turning its threats into reality and under the cynical name ‘Operation Sources of Peace’ has launched a new campaign of extermination against the people of the region. From the North, jihadist gangs try to advance to the cities and settlements along the border and the villages in the vicinity have become the scene of fierce battles between the self-defence forces of the population and the invading troops. While the fascist invaders attack the civilian population of Rojava under the protection of their heavy weapons, artillery and the bombardment of their war planes, sleeper cells of the Islamic state carry out coordinated attacks in the interior and spread fear and terror.

Debriefing Text of the Open Assembly of Squats, Collectives, Internationalists, Migrants and Solidarians (Athens, Greece)

Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

DEBRIEFING TEXT OF THE OPEN ASSEMBLY OF SQUATS, COLLECTIVES, INTERNATIONALISTS, MIGRANTS AND SOLIDARIANS

This text is a debrief of the actions of the open assembly from its beginning right after the evacuation of four squats in Exarchia on 26/8 until the demo of 14/9, where four arrests took place.

The evictions of 26/8 were not left unanswered, as hundreds of comrades made a spontaneous demo from Exarchia to Psyrri. The next day, the assembly calls for a solidarity gathering at the courtrooms for the three arrested people of Gare, and, the afternoon, for a solidarity gathering for the detained migrants in Petrou Ralli.

On 29/8 we made a solidarity rally in front of Mpoumpoulinas migrant housing squat, while the next morning at 4am the squat began to be barricaded and solidarians started gathering outside, acting as a bulwark against a possible eviction. On Saturday, August 31st, the assembly supported the march around Exarchia with a bloc of its own. The next action was to break the blockade around the steki of anarchist immigrants with a support rally and hanging a banner. Next, in preparation for the march against state repression on 14/9 at Propylaia, four kinds of posters, calls and texts in five different languages were printed, and then posted and given out in neighborhoods, universities, schools and squats. Actions culminated with the informational intervention of a hundred comrades at the hip-hop festival in Technopoli, Gazi, on 6/9.

Italy: Update on Operation Prometheus

Sunday, September 29th, 2019

Italy: “Prometeo” repressive operation – Update on Natascia and a few words on the reasons given to confirm her precautionary custody in prison (September 2019)

“Trials are set up for anarchists for what anarchists are, enemies of the State”.

A little more than one week ago, a public ordinance of the Milan tribunal was published, which outlined the reasons given during the review that confirmed her precautionary custody while she is awaiting trial. This previously happened with Robert and Beppe, who were also arrested on 21 May as part of a repressive operation called “Prometeo”.

A slew of reasons were subdivided into many paragraphs that were titled, “degree of harmfulness of rudimentary ordnances sent”, “the need for precautionary measures”, “evidence of serious indications of guilt” and the “juridical qualification of the offence in the perspective of some constituent elements, including under the profile of the psychological element”.
