Berkin Elvan was a 15-year-old Turkish boy who was hit in the head by a tear-gas canister fired by a police officer in Istanbul, while the boy was out to buy bread for his family during the June 2013 Gezi park protests in Turkey. He died on March 11, 2014. Widespread demonstrations erupted following Berkin’s death. Gezi park remains heavily monitored by secret police.
We received the following report from DAF of an action taken to commemorate Berkin. In the video you can see and hear small explosives and fireworks being used against the police and to create a rupture in the city. Here is the communique we received:
DAF action for Berkin Elvan
One year ago, murderous police killed our brother Berkin Elvan who was 15 years old. DAF was on the streets in the first year of his murder. We are not afraid of the murderers. We will keep on fighting. Murderous Police, Terrorist State will pay for these massacres.
Berkin is here, We are here!
On the first anniversary of the death of Berkin Elvan, the comrades from LAF (High School Anarchist Action) also opened a banner on the stairs of Gezi Park. On it was written the slogan “Berkin is here”. They poured red paint on the stairs to the Gezi Park, shouting “If the government is thirsty for blood, then take it.” Our 8 comrades were then assaulted, abused and taken into custody, handcuffed from the back.
Warsaw: Restaurant belonging to landlord enforcer scum Mossakowski attacked in the anniversary of the murder of Jola Brzeska (Poland)

Communique after an attack on a restaurant of a well known Warsaw landlord enforcer.
Jolanta Brzeska was tenant movement activist from Warsaw, who was kidnapped and burned alive in a forest. The court dismissed the case for her murder.
more info here about her case in english
Get the fuck out away from this neighborhood, get the fuck out away from this city, fuck off to a forest. Burn yourself.
With Her, you also begun with threats.
This payment is symbolic, but think what we can afford to do, when we can’t afford anything.
Burgeoisie, cops, politicians, journalists – you are all guilty.
All this state is guilty.
But you pay first, old prick, SS-man of the gentryfication, Warsaw’s executioner.
We don’t give a fuck about your arrangements and connections, pals that get your back, bribes and mates.
You’re getting better in changing windows, but you will not hide your guilt.
You can wash the paint off your walls, but you will not clean your hands.
We take justice in our own hands.
On the bricks it was written JOLA.
You will see this word till the end of your days.
It will be branded under your eyelids.
Let it wake you up like an axe breaking the door in the middle of the night.
Let the stink of burning petrol never leave you, wherever you’ll go.
Remember the way your victims have looked at you.
Thousands of those looks are watching your every move.
Szkło ci w stek.

Acción de propaganda en las afueras de la Fiscalía Sur ante la prisión del compañero Diego Ríos ($hile)
Wednesday, February 25th, 2015
En los días posteriores a que se decretara una prisión preventiva de 30
días contra el compañero Diego Ríos, hemos arrojado volantes en las
afueras de la Fiscalía Sur, marcando en la calle nuestra presencia
antiautoritaria con una declaración de guerra:
CALOR SOLIDARIO A LXS AMIGXS DE LA LIBERTAD
FUEGO REBELDE A LOS DEFENSORES DEL PODER
¡DIEGO RÍOS A LA CALLE!
Como ente persecutor de quienes llevan a lxs hechos el antagonismo con
el orden autoritario, y como responsables del encarcelamiento de
compañerxs anarquistas en los últimos años, la Fiscalía Sur, sus
dependencias y fiscales debieran ser objeto de permanente hostigamiento
y ataque por parte de lxs antiautoritarixs. (more…)
Incendiary barrage in solidarity with fugitive comrade Ageliki and the imprisoned members of CCF by 'Constant Unholy Synod / Iconoclastic Cell Clément Duval / FAI-IRF' (Greece)

ONE STEP BEFORE…
In the modern age where everything moves continuously with terrible speed, not even the most shrewd ones manage to realize adequately and securely enough to estimate in time the consequences of the stated decisions of others upon their lives!
In modern Fortress Europe, where immigrants/refugees from the “third world” countries are shot in cold blood at the borders, flounder on the Aegean sea or become “sacks of potatoes” and “punching bags” inside police departments and detention centers. There where the global conflict of interests, between the two most powerful –but interdependent- poles of power and also the ambivalent smaller circles of influence that interlock with each other, goes on with unabated intensity, muffled but also unconcealed (as in Ukraine); Greece and other neighboring countries (inside and outside the EU) remain fully heterogeneous and controlled – colonial type-provinces of the capitalist center, where even breathing is taxed!
In modern civilization, with the toxic wastes that extensively pollute the earth and the aquifer, air pollution that contributes highly to the reduction of life expectancy, the techno-industrial noises of every kind leading to paranoia and the luminous advertising signs that cover the starlight, even the car’s petrol tank light exists to remind us of the misery we experience!
In the modern city and everywhere else where there are the catastrophic tentacles of industry and the lies of social hierarchy (eg. always talking about the artificial environment, the officials and lackeys of institutional authority etc.), there is nothing more beautiful than the screwed up faces and the broken bones, the debris and embers of the means and infrastructure of the Enemy!

Last week (8-14 / 2) we made a propaganda campaign in the town of Mytilene, in solidarity with the imprisoned comrades of the anarchist revolutionary organization the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. We painted slogans and put up posters in the main streets, on bank branches, supermarkets, phone stands, bus stops, crowded buildings and the city courts. Although the photos would be enough to convey our anger and passion, we write these lines as we want to also tell that during our intervention in the campus of the University of the Aegean, knowing that there are no environmental sensitivities in the faction of New Democracy at the School of Environment, we stole the whole year’s election material (huge colored posters) of DAP and sent them for recycling, so that they won’t think that it was lost and, secondly, for them to know that we do not abstain from the university campus and the student elections, but from the educational process and the collective stupidity… We wish you luck with the election results morons!
Notes: New Democracy is the biggest right-wing political party in Greece and DAP is its student faction.

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.
17th Feburary 2015
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.

Berlin: 2 vehicles of the prison industry torched in run up to the opening of the European Central Bank – Destroika takes responsibility (Germany)
Monday, February 9th, 2015
In the night between the 28th and 29th of January 2015, Destroika struck in Berlin, and two prison industry vehicles turned into ruins. Through these pinpricks, we will limit the flexibility of the relevant companies. A van of Wisag in Lichtenberg and another of Sodexo in Moabit came under attack.
The company WISAG provides, in addition to the exploitative cleaning sector, security staff for transport services such as the BVG transport company in Berlin, and is responsible for filling the Berlin prisons of fare-dodgers, with ticket inspectors plain-clothed as well as in uniform.
The company Sodexo now runs five prisons in the UK under their own responsibility since the privatisation of the British justice system. In addition, Sodexo is blacklisted in Belgium for their involvement in deportation prisons, besides providing facility management services to deportation lagers in Germany. The company is owned by the Zehnacker group, which is presented in this way: “As a partner of the armed forces, we accompany them in their operational areas at home and abroad. Our mission is to take care of both the troops and their command for a better quality of life. Under the supervision of the Ministry of Justice, Sodexo plans and delivers solutions that contribute to smooth operations in correctional facilities. In all our activities, we respect our values and ethical principles. Our work in this domain is further proof of our strong commitment to society.”
Freedom for the prisoners of Operation Pandora and all the others!
On the 18th of March 2015 off to Frankfurt – to reduce the European Central Bank to ruins and ashes!
Autonomous Group “Muslim H.”
(Muslim H., originally from Kosovo, was 28 years old when he was killed by 8 screws in the prison of Landshut on May 24th, 2014, in revenge for his successful resistance to his deportation to Hungary.)
Translation note: On January 30th, the remaining seven prisoners of Operation Pandora were released on conditional bail.
Saturday, February 7th, 2015
In the morning of Friday 30th January, just after the secrecy of the investigation was lifted and the news disseminated of the impending conditional bailing of comrades, we decided to express our solidarity in the streets. We sabotaged the cashpoints and the windows of the following Santander Bank offices:
In Mataró, the branches in the streets of Camí del Mig, Plaza de Granollers, Plaza Santa Anna, Carrer Sant Cugat, Avenida de América, Via Europa. We also sabotaged the branches of the same bank in El Masnou, Vilassar de Mar and Premià de Mar.
We chose the bank Santander because it is the only entity responsible for managing the cash flow in prisons of the Spanish State, generating around 100 million euros per year, according to official figures. Speculating and turning a profit on the basis of this important amount of money, the fruit of suffering and incarceration of thousands of people.
We celebrate the fact that our comrades are again on the outside, but even so, we are well aware that we still have a long and difficult path ahead, and that as long as resistance exists against the domination of the capitalist system, the state and it’s repressive mechanisms will try to put an end to it.
That the flame of solidarity isn’t put out.
Freedom for Mónica and Francisco!

Inter Arma received from Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras:
After one year of detention in San Miguel prison, anarchist comrade Tamara Sol started to face the trial in which power aims to annihilate her. Tamara is accused of shooting a bank guard in January 2014, just days after a bank guard killed comrade Sebastian Oversluij in an attempted bank robbery, in a different bank branch.
In November 2014, a brief preparation for trial against Tamara was performed, which finally started on this January 23. Tamara is facing a democratic inquisition that wants to sentence her to several years in prison, with charges of attempted murder and accomplished simple theft. (more…)

Five actions in a row were organised on January 29 in support of anarchists, arrested in Minsk for alleged resistance to the police about a week ago. In fact all of them were detained on suspicion of participation in solidarity actions with other activists, who had been arrested at a punk concert and accused of distribution of extremist literature.
According to the activists, by these action they wanted to show that the 4 arrested people are not the ones who had organised the actions on January 16. The police and the judicial system don’t aim at detecting or preventing crimes, the strive to suppress any demonstration of nonconformity.
One of the groups visited the judge who decided on the anarchists’ cases and put leaflets around the house reading that he is wanted for unfair sentences and accusing a person known to be innocent. It’s common knowledge that judges in Belarus act in accordance with demands of the police. (more…)
