Basel, Switzerland / Violence against refugees is systematic: A call
Recently it became publicly known that systematic violence is perpetrated against refugees in the federal asylum camp in Basel (Switzerland). Obviously this violence is neither an isolated case nor is it limited to the asylum camps in Switzerland.
This violence is systematic and the system has names. Those responsible are internationally represented and operate in many different places. Let’s name them and show them that their actions bear consequences.
The spread of the coronavirus has highlighted the violence of the European migration regime – both at the EU external border as well as in local asylum camps and prisons.
This call wants to continue the intensified struggles against it.
What are federal asylum camps?
Since the spring of 2019, asylum seekers in Switzerland are being administered in so-called federal asylum centres. The accelerated asylum procedues related to the erection of these new structures do not result in fairer procedures for most of the persons affected, but in faster deportation. The federal asylum camps are often geographically isolated. The type of constuction, the location, as well as the rules imposed are reminding of prisons and other instituions that deprive people of their freedom. They are contributing to the racist constructs of the nation state and borders. (more…)

“Burn all prisons, with or without walls!” – The call for a Subversive May, as an extension of the proposal for an Anarchist May 1st in Berlin, is understood by us as a call to extend the attack on different levels. We agree with the idea not to confine ourselves to one day but to constantly and unpredictably attack the functioning of existing society and prove that its security is an illusion.
The apparatus of power includes not only the murderers of the State, but also the mercenaries of the private security companies. Securitas vehicles once parked undisturbed in the GESOBAG housing estate where they act as security guards to prevent the intervention of cops during conflicts with tenants or tensions with the property management. Securitas is also engaged in surveillance work in prisons and public spaces worldwide. (more…)

Berlin, October 15th, 2018
The anarchist movement has sharpened it’s profile. This has meant that the repression against us has intensified in recent years. From Germany, the G20 has triggered an increase in activity by security agencies because they have realized that they are not in control of us and it became so obvious that a response was necessary. The destruction in Hamburg, the lack of compromise and the determination of the hooded ones hit them exactly where it was intended. Uncertainty was triggered there, in a place where people people’s property defines themselves and their complicity in a warring society. The luxury automobile or the patrol car on the verge of becoming a pile of charred plastic – a casualness towards the war against the poor, the outcast and the inept.
Following the publication of the text ‘The Insurgent’s Autism’, in issue 9, June 2018 of the eco-anarchist publication Fenrir, we felt an urge to respond. And for a moment we attack the illusion of security in this society in a very specific place to engage in communication and open a space for discussion.
…We do not know what to think regarding what out comrade Alfredo Cospito is saying when he speaks about a vision of an anarchist praxis that would become more dangerous because it keeps on experimenting. We can only speak for ourselves, that we have become more dangerous and are quite successful because the power misjudges our real potential. The willingness to remain alone, the claiming of total responsibility for our destiny… (more…)

Because we despise any kind of authority, we set fire to a car belonging to the security company ‘Securitas’ last night. The conditions in which we find ourselves are making it clearer to us day by day that there are politicians, judges and prosecutors, authorities, crappy teachers, conductors, and even cops and their lap dogs of security that stand over us and control our lives. This situation is completely unacceptable. We can take care of ourselves, and we recognize that they are the ones who stand in the way of an emancipated life. For they are there to defend the freedom of the rulers. Not the freedom of being free from domination.
For our form of freedom that consists of solidarity and respect for our environment exists outside of capitalist thinking and would be its downfall. An anarchist world would mean the loss of their power and the death of their world.
In a few months is the climax of the authorities in Hamburg.
There is much to do.
Take care of yourselves. See you on the streets.
Fire to the ruling power, Fire to the G20 and its system.

On the evening of the 28th of February, six Securitas (private security company) vehicles were torched at Anhalter railway station. Securitas have been gaurding the entry to the occupied school on Ohlauer Strasse in Kreuzberg, Berlin for two years, forcing the remaining refugees to a jail-like existence. Through constant displays and harassment of the residents, their number has been constantly reduced – many have disappeared in jail, have been deported or have a house ban.
If we were able to identify more deeply with society’s slaves we would now complain that ‘guarding’ costs millions of euros for taxpayers. But no. Then we would have to complain about the bad working conditions in the security sector. On the contrary we are working on the destruction of the bridges of this society, which are still being preserved via the security sector in order to integrate even the partly autonomous milieus with reluctant practice.

Two vehicles of private security company ‘Securitas’ burned in Fennovoima anti-nuclear struggle – Solidarity to Monica & Francisco (Finland)
Sunday, April 3rd, 2016
We take responsibility for the arson attack on the 29th of March. We burned two cars of the private security company Securitas. With this attack we want to bring to light the co-operation between Securitas and Fennovoima nuclear energy company that is known for its destruction of the environment.
The 1st of April will be the first day that Securitas will be in charge of the construction site in Hanhikivenniemi, where the latest nuclear plant is meant to be built.
With this arson we welcome Securitas to Fennovoima!
We want to send our solidarity to Monica and Francisco.
And all the prisoners of the world!
