The main article below is reposted from inthebellyofthebeast. Also see fightfortheaylesbury website for further reports and updates. As of today (21 Feb), the occupation of the new block (69-76 Chartridge) continues, and this afternoon the squatters are holding a “fun day” with food and football.

On Tuesday night Southwark council workers along with 100 cops attacked squatters on the abandoned Aylesbury housing estate (one of the largest in Europe), in a ‘para-military’ operation.
The cops & council workers were prevented from entering the squatted building earlier in the evening by a burning barricade of mattresses and steel sheets. An army of TSG (Tactical Support Group, riot police unit) then descended upon the other steel plated entrance with angle grinders, as sparks started to fly a ferocious resistance ensued, the squatters preventing the cops from entering for two whole hours, as they pelted the cops with any object to hand and broke their angle grinder several times.

IS (Islamic State) is attacking Kobane city in Rojava (it means West Kurdistan in Kurdish) as everybody knows. But what I want to explain is, why there is this organization called Islamic State, and how it was founded. So maybe everything can become more clear.
We can say the history of ISIS begins with Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi, who organized the strongest resistance against the USA and coalition troops in Iraq. Actually he is from Jordan, city called Zarqa, so he took this name “Zarqawi”.
In Jordan he was in an Salafist and Jihadist organization and he was imprisoned with his comrades because of this. Why doesn’t the Jordanian state want a Salafi-Jihadist organization? (more…)

Anarchists in Australia issue a call out for decentralised attacks, disorder, riots and sabotage around the topic of the G20.
The G20 is meeting in Brisbane in November. This elite decision making body epitomises the undemocratic nature of state-sponsored global capitalism; delegates from the 20 wealthiest economic zones make self-serving proclamations which affect everyone, without open discussion or oversight. …
We are calling for people to form affinity groups in their home towns and
autonomously organise decentralised direct action against the G20 and the capitalist occupation of our lives.
See you on the streets!!

(From Die Lunte)
The north side of Paris consists of a large area of social housing. The old industrial area has gradually been compressed into the east side; in between, on the northeast side, the mansions and villas of the rich spread out.
The police guard the industrial works, the east side and the houses of the northeast. But they rarely dare to venture into the north side. There the night is dangerous. When the police do venture into the north side, it is at great risk and those who do so are not squeamish. If a youth does not stop when ordered to do so, a cop shoots, or if the youth is on foot, he will simply be run over by a patrol car.
Something happened, centered in the city quarter of Noisy-le Grand. Hundreds of people took to the streets, and not just young people but adults as well, and not just blacks. It was reported as several confrontations between the police and the people in revolt and a few burning cars. Then it was claimed that the situation had normalized.
But in the days that followed, completely different characteristics developed: people did not appear in the open on the street corners to demonstrate, but joined in the complicity of the night. They formed into groups of two or three people, hundreds of small groups for systematic attack. A high school was completely destroyed. Three occupational schools blazed. Hundreds of parked cars functioned as chains of light. A bank was attacked and destroyed with molotov cocktails. In the city center there were hardly any shop windows that were not destroyed or plundered. Fire extinguishers were demolished. Gas and water pipes were sabotaged and garbage cans were set ablaze.

New Bail and Legal Fund Established
A new bail and legal fund has been established to support the people who have been arrested during the anti-police demonstrations in Ferguson, Mo. The other account had to be closed for tax reasons, but a new account has been quickly set up. Please spread the word widely and help us get some money together to get these people out.
Also, we are looking for information on who was arrested so we can get them legal support and bail them out if necessary. If you have a friend or family member who was arrested, please email us their name at:
antistatestl [at] riseup [dot] net
All funds collected will be used to support those arrested during the demonstrations–their bail money, fines, legal funds, or other related expenses. In the unlikely event that there are additional funds, they will be used to support people resisting police repression and police violence in the future.

… Yesterday when I was cooking, me and subcommandante ***** heard about some eviction quite near to Pandan Raya, in Mapanyukki. We heard in the radio that two of the police were severely injured by molotov cocktails and we rushed to the place. But by the time we get there its all tear gas and the confrontation have calmed down, but you can see how the police forces were very large, including some military trucks, it was a full force eviction. But the occupants fought very hard too. The little boys fights with arrows, molotov cocktails, the women, rocks, but the tear gas easily dispersed them. I can still feel the pain in my eyes as we passed through the former battleground. This eviction grew unease to the comrades because its like signal for Pandan Raya as the next target. …

Above picture: Dead paedophile Sir Peter Morrison with Margaret Thatcher. A close aide to Thatcher, a Member of Parliament for Chester, named as an abuser by residents of children’s homes in nearby North Wales. Morrison was Parliamentary Private Secretary to Margaret Thatcher, leader of her campaign team in the Conservative leadership election of 1990 and a deputy chairman of the Conservative Party. Despite the massive internal security war being conducted against the domestic opposition and externally against the Irish Freedom Fighters, the security services allowed paedophiles this close to Thatcher and record-breaking paedophile and child procurer Jimmy Saville was her close friend: a regular visitor to her country home at Chequers and Christmas dinner guest. Thatcher would have known about the systematic abuse of hundreds of young boys and girls over decades. Rot in hell bitch.
Above picture: Margaret Thatcher with her friend and ally, the genocidal dictator General Suharto of Indonesia. US and British governments helped Suharto to power and backed his authoritarian regime. The workers and peasants unions were eradicated with the knowledge and support of Thatcher. Estimates of the death toll caused by Suharto’s repression range from half a million to three million. No-one has ever been held to account for this appalling deed.
In Chile, Thatcher backed a 17 year military dictatorship ruled by General Pinochet which deposed the leftist president Allende and a reported 1,200–3,200 people were killed, up to 80,000 were interned, and up to 30,000 were tortured by his regime including women and children. Pinochet was close to Thatcher and she intervened on his behalf when he was held in Britain for war crimes. Massive spontaneous street demonstrations broke out throughout the country upon the learning of his death. At least 200,000 Chileans (about 2% of Chile’s 1973 population) were forced to go into exile. Additionally, hundreds of thousands left the country in the wake of the economic crises that followed the military coup during the 1970s and 1980s. Some of the key individuals who fled because of political persecution were followed in their exile by the DINA secret police, in the framework of Operation Condor, which linked South American military dictatorships together against political opponents.

Nicholas Francis, Tyrone Laidley, Renardo Farrell, Wayne Collins, Jermaine Lewis and Amirul Rehman
These 6 rebels have been locked up by the British state in revenge for the ambush laid for police by a group of roughly 40 rioters in Ashton, Birmingham, during last August’s uprising. The group of rioters, the regime prosecution alleged, had set fire to a pub to draw police to the scene who were then shot at with various firearms, forcing police, including the police helicopter, to flee.
Wigged-up bastard Judge William Davis, summing up after discharging his duties as jailer of enemies of the rich and powerful, declared – “The purpose, the common purpose, was to behave in such a way that the police would come to the scene and then to attack the police.”
Francis, Laidley, Farrell, Collins and Lewis – all young men in their early 20s – were given sentences ranging from 18 years (for Renardo Farrell) to 30 years (for Nicholas Francis), on charges of riot, arson and possession of firearms “with intent to endanger life.” 17-year old Amirul Rehman was sentenced to 12 years.
The 6 young men join thousands of others who rose up in August 2011 that are now held hostage by the British state’s prison system. Strength to those who lift their hands against the oppressors – and we wish all the fighters a quick break to the streets with dignity!!
NO JUSTICE NO PEACE – FUCK THE POLICE!
