Cardiff: Solidarity with squats under attack in Greece and raids in Berlin (Wales)

On August 5th cops in Greece continued their campaign of repression against squats by raiding three squatted spaces in Patras: Parartima, Maragopouleio and the Self-managed Hangout inside the Technological Educational Institute (TEI). 16 comrades were detained in total; 5 squatters and 11 supporters.

While those showing solidarity were later released, the 5 occupants faced charges in court on the 13th. Therefore the next day we painted a banner to express our solidarity with squatters facing charges and evicted from their homes. (more…)

Lublin: Two banks attacked by 'Felicity Ryder Anarchist Cell' (Poland)

Saturday, July 27th, 2013

More FOTOs from action: http://grecjawogniu.info/?p=15905

Our shoes are worn out from all the boring peace walks we have joined. Not only have we noticed holes on the shoe soles, but we have also realised that we are stuck in one place and our inner ferocity is now lulled into gentleness. Demonstrations are not a good outlet for our anger, which cannot be satisfied with mere tramping the streets, all under the watchful eye of the police. Thus, we feel forced to seek new paths of action.

This is why, on the 1st of May we went for a walk without informing the authorities. We took with us a few litres of paint and made a resolution that we need to do something for our comrades. We painted windows of two banks located in two different parts of the city. Their owners should know that not every potential visitor will have peaceful intentions and will beg for a loan.

We dedicate the operation to Felicity Ryder, an anarchist from Australia, who has been hiding for months from the watchdogs, as well as to those arrested in Greece, Italy and other parts of the world.

Banks are a perfect target for anarchist attacks. Behind their rehearsed smiles, the clerks hide everyday tragedies. Banks play the role of blood vessels of this fucked up system, they back up armies and multinational corporations, they help to concentrate the capital in the hands of very few, they protect business of the rich, and speculate with the money of the poor. Banks are the very institutions on which financial market dictatorship rests. Through banks’ throats there runs a monstrous assembly tape of contemporary civilisation, which covers the globe with chains of wage labour causing exploitation, alienation, and eco-catastrophe.

Buenos Aires: Banco ITAU attacked with stones and spraypaint slogans (Argentina)

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

El pasado jueves 18 atacamos a pedradas el Banco ITAU situado en las calles Bolivar y Moreno, en pleno centro porteño. A su vez, dejamos pintado en sus vidrieras “Solidaridad con la Revuelta en Brasil”. Un gesto mínimo que queríamos comunicar en momentos donde el papa Francisco I (Jorge Bergoglio) se pasea por las calles del país vecino, antes una masa imbécil que lo vitorea, mientras miles mueren de hambre o bajo balas del ejercito, mientras otrxs tantos revientan hacinados en las favelas o bajo el martillo del narcotráfico y las drogas.

Ni la ostentación de la riqueza del vaticano, ni el espectáculo millonario del próximo mundial de fútbol, pueden tapar tanta miseria.

Contra toda Autoridad!
PROPAGANDA Y ACCIÓN

On Thursday 18 we attacked the ITAU Bank with stones located in streets Bolivar & Moreno, in downtown Buenos Aires. In turn, we painted on their windows “Solidarity with the revolt in Brazil.” A small gesture that we wanted to communicate in the moments where Pope Francis I (Jorge Bergoglio) wanders the streets of the neighboring country before a mass cheering circle-jerk, while thousands starve or are under army bullets and while many others are in bursting overcrowded favelas or under the hammer of drug trafficking and drugs.

Neither the ostentation of wealth of the Vatican, or the millionaire show of the next World Cup, can cover so much misery.

Against all Authority!

L’Hospitalet, Catalonia: Five banks attacked in solidarity with the 5 prisoners of Sabadell (Barcelona)

Thursday, June 6th, 2013

via contra-info, see previous news stories 1 & 2:

We have been active as a group for around a year, during which time we have seen a slight increase in the kind of actions with which we identify. We also have taken similar actions and have decided to make them public through this indymedia, to encourage their replication.

Besides us, there was recently an attempt to frame their actions as part of a “campaign” or similar collection of actions. Afterward, the response was silence from most of the anarchist and nihilist lines in Catalonia (or, at least, nothing was spread on the Internet).

We keep our strategy and political line firm: We see the actions by the Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI) and other anonymous actions as small winks. We take the opportunity to send a solidarious hug to all those individuals who decided to pass from theory to practice, in relation to direct, material action. (more…)

Video: Action in memory of Mauricio Morales (Chile)

Saturday, June 1st, 2013

from hommodolars, translated by waronsociety:

It was around 2 pm on May 22 when over a dozen compañerxs covered up and with faces concealed decided to launch a direct action in memory of our compañero Mauricio Morales (El Punky Mauri). They took the intersection of Grecia Avenue and Doctor Johow, at the outskirts of the University of $hile, erected barricades and posted themselves to wait for the fanatics of order with 100 molotov cocktails.

Upon the arrival of the armed force of capital, the combatants got ready to attack, with all their material, without a breather; the trees would serve as cover while the shadows of the faceless bodies regrouped to attack again. The confrontations lasted about 30 minutes, without any compañerx being wounded, or indeed captured by the lapdogs of power.

The retreat was launched at the moment when the compañerxs used up all their attacking material. Neither their tear gas, nor their chemical water, nor their pellets were able to stop the action and the fury of the hooded compañerxs.

This action is framed within the commemoration of the unfortunate death of our compañero Mauricio Morales, a result of the unfortunate explosion of his explosive device. Four years after your death, those who carry fire in their hearts, fury in their minds, and thousands of insurrectionary actions in their hands do not forget you. We are not among those who idealize your death as heroic, or that of a martyr, you were just another brother, another compañerx, and therefore like many who launched the various forms of offensive against capital.

Compañero Mauricio Morales: a warrior, not a martyr!
Freedom to the political prisoners and fire to the prison society!

Contents of the leaflets found in the place:

On May 22, 2009, Mauricio Morales, an anarchist compañero, died fighting against exploitation, misery, the prison system… Today we remember your spirit of struggle, as a warrior, without putting anyone at risk… Like everything that you blew up, you blew yourself up as well. But you fly forever in our hearts.* Because no compañerx killed or imprisoned is forgotten.

FROM MEMORY TO THE STREET, PUNKY MAURI IS PRESENT

Anarchist group 'Destructive Consciousnesses' take responsibility for the anti-state molotov attack in Komotini (Northern Greece)

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

In the early hours of Sunday, May 26th the administrative offices of the Eastern Macedonia and Thrace region, in the city of Komotini, were attacked with molotov cocktails.

This was a minimal display of rage against the State, its minions, and every authoritarian structure that, everyday, bring us closer to totalitarianism and enslavement.

The attack was a response to the rotten political system that is terrorizing us on a daily basis. Terrorizing us with imprisonment for those who resist, with taxes, with salaries and pensions that one can barely live from, with the violent repression of strikes and demos, with fascist–parastatal gangs acting unmolested, covering their real faces with democratic masks, so as to guarantee the continuation of domination and exploitation whenever Power and cops can’t finish the job.

We do not demand better terms of slavery; instead we fight for the complete destruction of Power.

We proclaim ourselves refusers of this society and the miserable life offered to us, so we are going on the offensive.

We also send a message to the judges and the State: our comrades, who spend their days and nights in the cages of democracy and Capital that you call “correctional institutions”, ARE NOT ALONE.

Solidarity with the anarchist R.O. Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, and all imprisoned fighters! Freedom for everyone in prison cells!

“Destructive Consciousnesses”

Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

On the anniversary of the 2012 protests prior to the inauguration of Putin in Moscow, a demonstration for Russian political prisoners was organised in Helsinki by Free Pussy Riot Helsinki and a local group of Anarchist Black Cross. From 4 to 6 PM an info-stall was held at the statue of the Three Smiths in the very center of the city. Main topic of the demonstration was the case against more than 20 people, accused of rioting 6th of May 2012, but information was also provided about the case of Pussy Riot and the cases of four persecuted Moscow antifascists (Alexey Olesinov, Alexey Sutuga, Alyon Volkov and Igor Kharchenko) At 6 PM, the demonstration headed to the Russian embassy, shouting “Free Russian political prisoners” and “Putin out”, as well as the names of around twenty political prisoners (“Free Aleksandra Dukhanina!”, “Free Stepan Zimin!”, “Free Alexey Polikhovich!”, “Free Alexey Gaskarov!” and so on). In front of the demonstration, there was a bilingual banner “Free political prisoners” in Finnish and Russian languages. Altogether, around 50 people joined the demonstration.
