End of hungerstrike for prisoners in struggle

Saturday, January 2nd, 2010

Comrades visited Gabriel Pombo da Silva in Aachen prison, Germany, during these previous days. He was fine, not suffering so much and very happy to get news about the solidarity actions that took place in different places. He will begin to eat again tomorrow and was already thinking about that. The comrades also spoke with Gabriel about making a balance from what happened, but it will take time before the text appears.

For the destruction of all prisons and borders forever.

For revolutionary struggle against capitalism.

Some of the recent actions of solidarity:

Bombing at Banco Frances, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Bombings at BBVA Bank and Kenworth Company, Ecatepec, Mexico

Bombing near Federal Prison System HQ, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Freedom for Marco Camenisch (Switzerland)

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

Marco Camenisch was born on January 21st 1952 in Switzerland, in a small village of the Graubunden region. At the beginning of 1980 Marco was arrested for damaging electricity pylons and transformers, once against the NOK company (which ran nuclear power plants in Switzerland) and once against their distributors, the Sarelli company. The sentence was very harsh: 10 years. Marco was well aware this reflected the seriousness of what was at stake: the ecocide perpetrated by the the power industry as part of the wider system of destruction, which formed the target of his own struggle.

Solidarity with flames on X-mas day! (Greece)

Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

A communique from Greece for an arson, translated from an Athens Indymedia post on 27/12:

25 December 2009:

“In the late hours of Christmas we put up in flames 3 vehicles belonging to the Municipality of Stavroupoli in Thessaloniki. Whatever carries a state identity, escpecially like a big municipality of a big city, will always be a very good target. We chose this certain day in an attempt to reverse its mood and its moral guise, to sabotage the ridiculous festive atmosphere with the decorated trees, the mangers in the squares and with the shinny family dinners which hide a lot of hypocrisy and unhappiness. All these Christmas stupidities universally, based on spectacle and promoting the culture of mass consumption, with the anniversal humanitarianism and the “social solidarity” cannot be anything else than the confirmation of the society’s decay.

On our side we realise solidarity in a different way and make it an act through ceaseless revolutionary action till we get liberated from the chains of all authorities. So our solidarity, together with our warm greetings, we send to anarchist comrades that have been captured in the hands of the state for their decision to take part in social war.

To Gabriel Pombo Da Silva who is imprisoned in Aachen, Germany and who at this time is on hunger strike in his attempt to manifestate against the prison system for one more time and to the comrades that succour with hunger strike in various prisons around the world like Marcos Camenisch in Switzerland, Juan Carlos, Francisco, Honorio and Albert in Spain, Diego in Argentina and Sergio, Mike and Evelyn in Italy.

To Alfredo Bonnano, Christos Stratigopoulos and Amadeu Casellas that are confined and have been also in the past in prison for bank expropriations.

To Tamara that was arrested only 10 days ago and is held in women prisons Wad-Ras in Barcelona and is charged of sending a mail-bomb to the secretary of the Catalan penitentiary services.

Also to our detained comrades in Mexico, Chile, Usa, France, Italy and Serbia.

To our detained comrades in Greece; Giannis Dimitrakis, Polis Georgiadis, Giorgos Voutsis-Vogiatzis, Ilias Nikolaou, Panagiotis Masouras and Haris Hadjimihelakis.

Besides the above list there are hundreds more that live the hell of prison and oppose it with dignity as their are comrades that in order to avoid it are wanted by the authorities and others that are as well wanted with a money reward on top and many more that are under various restrictions and are awaiting trials.

To end, it will be impossible to forget and to not make a reference of honour to our dead comrades with the most recent examples being the shot dead by cops young Alexis Grigoropoulos, the shot and stabbed to death russian antifas Fedor Filatov and Ivan Khutorskoi and also Zoe from France and Mauricio Morales from Chile that found death when their homemade bombs exploded in different cases.

FIRE TO THE PRISONS – SMASH THE STATE!”

About the attacks against State & Capital and the 'Conspiracy of Cells of Fire' (Greece)

Saturday, November 7th, 2009

A huge storm of revolt raged through the streets of Greece in December 2008. After the young Andreas Grigoropoulos was murdered by a cop, riots spread throughout the whole country for several weeks. Hundreds of banks, shops, car dealers, offices,… were attacked, plundered and put on fire. Although it were anarchists and anti-authoritarians who took the lead in this storm during the first week after the murder, it spread itself fast and many people got involved in this revolt against miserable living conditions, against the authorities and against the hopelessness offered by this world to the exploited and oppressed.

But the revolt didn’t cease at the end of 2008, neither did it start on the day of the murder. (more…)

Royal Bank of Scotland HQ attacked in Brighton (UK)

Friday, November 6th, 2009

2 November 2009 : Attack against RBS in solidarity with anarchist prisoners. Here is the claim: “We take responsibility for attacking the Brighton HQ of the Royal Bank of Scotland in the evening of 2nd November 2009. All banks are part of the same system which is destroying everything and has to go. Banks are the most visible manifestation of the exploitation and annihilation of our lives, carried out by state and capital. We haven’t forgotten the role of RBS in the financial crisis and the April G20 where Ian Tomlinson was killed by police, nor do we forgive.

We dedicate this action to Yiannis Dimitrakis, Amadeu Casellas, Thomas Meyer-Falk, Alfredo M. Bonanno and Christos Stratigopulos, anarchist comrades in prison for expropriations who chose to directly attack this system, as well as all other rebels who are in struggle inside and outside the prison walls.

We will not stop.”

Anarchists.
