Santiago, Chile: Contribution of La Rebelión de las Palabras to the meeting in combative memory of Sebastian Oversluij
Wednesday, January 9th, 2019
Contribution from La Rebelión de las Palabras for the meeting taking place in Santiago, Chile on 23rd December in combative memory of nihilist-anarchist comrade Sebastian Oversluij, “Angry”. The meeting was also within the context of Black December and internationalist anarchist praxis. 5th year since Sebastian’s death during a bank expropriation.
From the Spanish State, we greet first of all the compas that raised the commemorative activity for Angry, to a new anniversary of his death in action when he was trying to expropriate one of the temples of Capital. The noise of the blast that killed him awoke new feelings of rabid sadness that roamed the globe, unleashing actions of revenge, activities in his memory, and that inspired more individuals and groups that from the offensive or not, returned to take a breath to continue on this difficult path. We did not know Angry, nor did we know the political and social context of the Chilean territory where he developed, lived and fought. However, the courage, the determination and the coherent commitment that he showed with his last action reverberate in us, and we also feel affinity with his words, his music with the rap band Palabras En Conflicto, which we know and like, and with his drawings and gestures, contributions that mark his offensive trajectory, feeling honored to be able to participate in this activity contributing the present writing.
We have been asked to write something about the context of anarchism in the territories dominated by the Spanish State. However, to be honest, we do not feel legitimacy for such a task, since we do not know in depth the concrete context of many places of the state, and others we know them in a partial, ephemeral way or in any case, from an approach that starts from our assessment, our subjectivity and our own processes, affinities, preferences, with what we have decided to make a general assessment that, we repeat, part of our own personal valuations, without having to be taken as an absolute reason or that we intend to speak for others companions who, perhaps, have another point of view and something to say about it.

Nota: Palabras leídas en actividad conmemorativa por el -Angry- en la Biblioteca Antiautoritaria Sebastián Oversluij ubicada en algún lugar de Santiago de Chile el 23/12/2018.
“Al ke roba porke no tiene komida va a dar kon sus huesos a la kárcel de por vida… Al ke si tiene komida pero odia a los bankeros y les roba el dinero ke reparte entre sus kompañerxs”. (Kanción de Rap)
En la kárcel y en la kalle la memoria sin axión kotidiana es komo un kuerpo sin alma, komo un kúmulo de palabras vacías ke se usan sin darle koherencia real a nuestras konvixiones antagónikas… Por ello la importancia esencial de mantener vivxs entre nosotrxs a todxs nuestrxs hermanxs ke han kaído en la lucha direkta y frontal kontra el Poder, el Dominio y toda Autoridad.

Santiago, Chile: Black December – Contribution of 325 to the meeting in combative memory of Sebastian Oversluij
Sunday, December 23rd, 2018
Contribution for the meeting taking place in Santiago, Chile on 23rd December in combative memory of nihilist-anarchist comrade Sebastian Oversluij. 5th year since Sebastian’s death during a bank expropriation.
We are writing from ‘325’, which is a nihilist-anarchist and anti-civilisation group of counter-information and action. Since 2003 we exist as an informal group originally out of UK and spread into Europe. We want to send our greetings to all the comrades at the gathering, for many years we follow the struggle there in Chile and try to spread solidarity to the fight. From Chile to Indonesia, to Europe, and beyond…
We think that the tendencies of attack are the most vital part of anarchy, as direct action is the constitutive part of the fight for freedom, liberation and eco-defense. We think that it’s important to combine and multiply our struggle with comrades around the globe, because everywhere that anarchists are fighting, we can become a more dangerous and subversive threat against power when we internationalise and break down the borders between us. This is the reason that the States and corporations across the world are becoming afraid of anarchy again in the 21st Century, because we are the only real opposition to power’s domination and they do not want us to grow and link up with each other to conspire.
On the 5th year since Sebastian Oversluij`s death in a bank robbery, we keep him present, with all the comrades that are still living with us in our hearts and deeds. Even though we never met Sebastian we are inspired by his actions and life’s vision as he himself expressed it. We are touched by his freedom and energy. The banks and the capitalists are our enemies, and those that attack and expropriate them are our comrades, accomplices and friends.
The future belongs to those who struggle for liberation. They hasten the collapse of this prison-world.
Let’s light up the nights and days,
Blazing hugs for a Black December

Call for an Independent Materials Fair – Activity of the 6th International Week for Anarchist Prisoners (Brazil)
Wednesday, July 18th, 2018
CALL FOR AN INDEPENDENT MATERIALS FAIR – ACTIVITY OF THE SIXTH INTERNATIONAL WEEK FOR ANARCHIST PRISONERS
In response to the call for a “Sixth International Week in Solidarity For Anarchist Prisoners,” which will take place all over the world from the 23rd to the 30th of August, there will be a first winter fair of independent materials on August 25th.
This is an open call for anyone who wants to send us proposals with an anti-authoritarian focus to add to the activity. In addition, it is mainly an invitation to participate in this initiative that will happen in the “Tia Estela Space” , a squat of homeless people located underneath the so-called “Alcântara Machado Bridge” in São Paulo. Any contribution to self-management of this space is welcome.
The struggle for freedom is impossible without fighting against prisons. These disgusting spaces are surrounded by walls, violent forms of control, security devices and constant vigilance. Without such a
structure it would be impossible for any state or any government to remain in power. It is necessary to see prison not only as the main tool of domination against the subversive people who prefer war to the passivity of the masses, but also as a laboratory of the system and one of the main means to perpetuate slavery and work.

Demo zum Frauenknast nach rassistischem Übergriff! 28.10. um 18 Uhr S+U Frankfurter Allee
wir teilen diesen Aufruf für eine Demo am Samstag. Bitte verbreitet ihn weiter und unterstützt die Demonstration. Von Draußen können wir eine solidarische Antwort an die Gefangene senden und dem Knast zeigen, dass das was drinnen passiert nicht unbeobachtet bleibt!
Erklärung Soligruppe Gülaferit zu den Ereignissen am 8.10. in der JVA Lichtenberg
Knapp drei Monate vor der Haftentlassung* unserer Freundin und Genossin Gülaferit lässt das Knastsystem die Situation eskalieren. Die fortwährenden Provokationen und Schikanen gegen Gülaferit gipfeln in einem brutalen Angriff.
Was ist passiert: Bei einem Besuch schilderte uns Gülaferit wie es am 8.10. zu dem Angriff kam. Sie ging in die Zelle einer Mitgefangenen um das permanente Abspielen extrem lauter Musik zu stoppen. Daraufhin ging die Mitgefangene auf sie los und attackierte sie mit Fäusten. Ebenfalls drückte die Mitgefangene Gülaferit mit einem Besenstiel vor dem Hals an die Wand und beschimpfte sie rassistisch. Gülaferit wurde verletzt und musste auf der Krankenstation behandelt werden, sie trug an mehreren Körperstellen Hämatome (Blaue Flecken) davon. (more…)

Some anarchists groups in Exarcheia, Athens, are organizing the 1st Insurrection Festival. The date is November 12, 13, 14. We would appreciate your cooperation to spread the news.
Insurrection is the time when a collective body is uprising. Not a collective body with a common identity or ideology but driven by common actions against authority.
Insurrection is the violent entrance of the invisible into the central political scene.
Insurrection is fed from poverty to despair, from rage to need of empowerment and dignity from the social base.
At the end, insurrection is the practical doubt of domination’s structures and any regime. The negation of their omnipotence. If for some of us insurrection must lead to social revolution, or in another way must be a constant situation, the participation this moment should be our common ground.
We are calling this open assembly on to co-organize the First Insurrection Festival. It will be structured around four mains axes :

An international call for a week of action against speciesism, from October 30 and November 5, has been launched through social media. It encourages folks to carry out all kinds of actions, from street propaganda (paintings, posters, distribution of leaflets …) to workshops/forums and debates in your meeting spaces, to self-organizing various actions against specific businesses with the tools that each person may consider appropriate, to mass mobilizations and demonstrations.
May each one be organized as it suits each one involved, and may they shake all the cages. In memory of Barry Horne and all the human and nonhuman victims of speciesism and domination.
Both individual and collective measures of struggle are valid; from diffusion actions to mobilizations.
Solidarity between species is not just a written word!
The call out translated in several languages

We will go camping against prisons and punishment from the 26th to 30th of July at the Faetzig-Camp, near Görlitz. The “Faetzig-Camp” is a mixture of a Summer camp with political focus and a festival.
Why oppose prisons?
We live in a society of punishment. All of us have experienced the principle of punishment, whether in our families, at school, at work, at the job centre or other agencies, in hospital or in psychiatric institutions.
Punishment is part of a top-down system of power and powerlessness. It lets the strongest win, because they write and are able to enforce the rules. Punishment directs how we act and think. Punishment creates fear and makes us adapt. Fear of punishment is what creates the cop in our heads who forces us to help carry the violence known as normality. Fear of punishment stops us from taking action against injustices and wrongs.
Growing up in a world filled with punishment leads to a system of punishment living inside of us. It leads to us accepting and using punishment as a means of solving problems ourselves. (more…)

Faced with an apparatus of repression that is developing ever more suffocating forms within a context of on-going technocratic and scientific mania, it is easy to fall into a state of inertia.
The aim of this repression, achieved through permanent technological armament, the development of research and studies in the field of DNA and video analysis, and the accumulation and evaluation of data of any sort, is to impose itself on us as undefeatable and inevitable.
We are led to believe it is impossible to avoid the total surveillance, acquisition, and storage of data. To counter and overcome this fallacy of total control, we must approach the situations in which we struggle with continued analysis and reflection. We have to seek and share ways to meet these developments on battlegrounds of attack, solidarity and self-organization. (more…)

“Concrete and wires prevail everywhere.
Looking out from the window of my cell, behind the bar,
I see a piece of sky decorated with some barbed wire.”
Join us on Friday 18th of November for our info night event in solidarity with the anarchist communist Tasos Theofilou who is currently in prison, after being sentenced on the basis of forged and non existent evidence.

Projections, case updates, phone call interventions and presentation of Tasos’ inspiring writings…
Bring your insurrectionary poetry for our open mic!
Starting at 18:00 sharp at L.A.R.C. (62 Fieldgate Street E1 1ES London)
