Thursday, December 13th, 2018

At the hearing on 14th November a calendar of future hearings was once again announced after the expert appointed by the court to transcribe phone tapping asked for more time, obtained a 60-day extension and a second expert was also appointed. The prosecutor made it known that the judicial police had forgotten to deliver a CD audio and asked for an extension of the custody measures, but for the moment a calendar was set out complying with the length of custody… which is due to expire at the end of February (taking account of the 30/35 hearings till now, from mid-January the deadline slides to 18th February, plus some more days considering the hearings due in January). During the hearing of 14th, a DNA expert appointed by the court following Capra (DNA expert for the defence)’s report, gave his statement; the expert for the defence had challenged the reliability of the old report in several points.

Berlin: Auf zur “Freiheit für Musa Asoglu”-Demo nach Hamburg (Deutschland)

Tuesday, December 11th, 2018

Deutsch | Arabisch | Türkisch | Farsi | Englisch

Hallo liebe Freund*innen,

wir möchten am Samstag, den 15. Dezember 2018, gemeinsam von Berlin aus
zur “Freiheit für Musa Aşoğlu”-Demo nach Hamburg fahren. Hierzu treffen
wir uns am 15. Dezember um 7.30 Uhr am Ostbahnhof, Gleis 7. Wir besorgen
uns zusammen Wochenendtickets. Der Zug fährt dann um 7.52 Uhr ab. Wir
wären dann pünktlich in Hamburg, wo die Demo um 12 Uhr vor der Roten
Flora beginnen soll. Im Anschluss an die Demo würden wir gemeinsam
wieder zurück nach Berlin reisen.

Musa Aşoğlu wurde am 2. Dezember 2016 verhaftet und befindet sich
seitdem in Hamburg in Isolationshaft. Ihm wird nach §129b
(Mitgliedschaft in einer verbotenen terroristischen Vereinigung)
vorgeworfen, Mitglied der in der Türkei kämpfenden DHKP-C (Revolutionäre
Volksbefreiungspartei-Front) zu sein. Dass Oppositionelle in der Türkei
verfolgt, gefoltert und ermordet werden, stört die BRD in keinster Weise
– ist er doch enger Verbündeter und politischer Stabilidsator des immer
offener faschistisch agierenden Regimes in der Türkei.

Der §129b-Prozess gegen Musa Aşoğlu dauert seit dem 25. Januar 2018 an
und wir gehen davon aus, dass dieser im Frühjahr 2019 enden könnte.

Wir möchten Musa Aşoğlu und alle §129b-Gefangenen durch unsere
Teiilnahme an der Demo supporten. Schließt euch uns an. (more…)

Russia: Network Case Suspects Go on Hunger Strike

Friday, December 7th, 2018

Network Case Suspects Go on Hunger Strike
OVD Info
December 2, 2018

Dmitry Pchelintsev and Andrei Chernov, residents of Penza and suspects in the so-called Network case, have gone on hunger strike, claiming remand prison officials and FSB officers have intimidated them during their review of their criminal case file, something to which they are entitled by Russian law. Several Penza suspects in the case have claimed they have been put in solitary confinement, handcuffed to radiators, and threatened with violence.

Pchelintsev and Chernov went on hunger strike on November 29, as reported by the Parents Network, a support group established by the mothers and fathers of the young men, who have been accused of involvement in a “terrorist community” that, allegedly, was planning an armed uprising during the March 2018 presidential election and 2018 FIFA World Cup, held in Russia this past summer.

It was on November 29 that wardens put Pchelintsev in solitary, demanding he admit to breaking the rules by talking with other inmates during yard time. He responded by going on hunger strike, and Chernov joined him as a token of support and solidarity. On November 30, wardens again tried to bargain with Pchelintsev and threaten him. (more…)

Greece: Update on the Fourth Trial of Revolutionary Struggle

Thursday, December 6th, 2018

On Monday 03.12.18 at 9AM, the 4th trial of Revolutionary Struggle continues in the Korydallos Prison Court for cases of ‘theft’ attributable to the organization with the employees of banks appearing as witnesses.

The prosecution have combined around 9 cases of bank expropriation (dating from 2008-2015) carried out by Revolutionary Struggle with the aim of depoliticizing the organization and deconstructing their actions by adding additional charges and convictions.

Revolutionary Struggle members Pola Roupa and Nikos Maziotis have previously assumed political responsibility for the bank expropriations that were carried out to finance and continue the actions of the organization.

In this trial, those who are accused of involvement or are being investigated for the expropriations are accused of violating Article 187P.K for membership of a criminal organization as well as 187A for financing a criminal organization. Those being accused and judged in the first instance are: N. Maziotis – member of Revolutionary Struggle, Maria Theofilou, G. Petrakakos, Themistocles and Fotis Assimakapolulos, Marios Seisidis, Kostas Sakkas, Panagiotis Argyros, Grigoris Tsironis and Spyros Christodoulou (During an EKAM / Special Counter-Terrorist Unit operation, Spyros Dravillas shot and killed himself before he could be arrested. Spyros Christodoulou, G. Petrakakos and Grigoris Tsironis were arrested during the same operation).

The next hearing is scheduled for 12.12.18.

Italy : Report on the 8th November hearing of the ‘Operation Panico’ trial

Friday, November 23rd, 2018

Source: Anarchici fiorentini
Translated by act for freedom now!

The third hearing of the trial concerning Operation Panico took place on Thursday 8th November. We don’t know how it went nor are we much interested. The events speak for themselves. Giova, Ghespe, Paska, some of the other comrades on trial and an audience of comrades were in court. As soon as the hearing started, through his lawyer Paska demanded to speak in order to read out a declaration. He had come to court with the signs of the beating he had been given in La Spezia prison in the morning before being transferred to Florence. He started to read out his declaration, which began by telling of the screws’ beating, but the judge immediately ordered his microphone to be switched off, blabbing that what the comrade was saying was not pertinent to the trial, that the court was not the place to denounce this kind of thing and similar bullshit.

Lessons Regarding Warfare: On Confronting J20 Repression (USA)

Saturday, November 3rd, 2018

Receive and transmit:

A critical and at times biting look back on the fight against J20 repression. This text will hopefully lead to more reflections, responses, and above all – critical reflection as we look back and assess our own activity.

I’m a former J20 defendant.

Off the bat, I want to say that I only speak for myself. I’ve learned this is important. No one has permission to speak for me, and I don’t permit myself to speak for anyone else. I think this is the common mistake made by “organizations” of any form, all these tiny Leviathans that pick up this or that cause, on behalf of such and such people: their project is still representation, the creation of subjects and sovereigns, still business as usual. In the end, I think they manage our struggles for us.

Our struggles need to be direct. They have to emerge directly from within our own lives, our particular situations, and we need to embrace a willingness to confront them. No one is coming to liberate us but ourselves. I think this is a good thing however, it means there’s no one to wait for.

I’m not going to discuss what happened on January 20th, 2017. The majority of ex-defendants had their charges dismissed without prejudice, and in addition to possibly placing them at risk, recounting a few (allegedly) shattered windows during a largely symbolic protest doesn’t mean nearly as much to me as the last eighteen months of concentrated, intense state repression.

Comrades who are prisoners of the state are part of our struggle and part of us.

EN/ES – Anarchist comrades Kevin Garrido and Joaquin Garcia sentenced to long terms (Chile)

Sunday, September 9th, 2018

Finally, last Wednesday, September 5, was the reading of the sentences against comrades Kevin and Joaquin, these sentences can be appealed, but for the moment it is unknown what actions their lawyers will carry out.

The sentences were as follows:

KEVIN GARRIDO FERNÁNDEZ: 17 years of prison in maximum security, for possession of explosives and the placement and possession of explosive devices. In addition, sentenced to 61 days in minimum degree for illegal possession of a bladed weapon.

JOAQUÍN GARCÍA CHANKS: 10 years of prison in medium security, for placing explosive devices and a 3-year prison term in maximum security for the crime of illegally carrying a firearm.

For the moment this is what we can tell, as soon as we have more information we will update on the situation of the comrades. We make a call to demonstrate solidarity in the face of the prison sentences dictated against Kevin and Joaquín. No sentence against our comrades should be left without an answer.

SOLIDARITY AND STRUGGLE!

INSURRECTION AND ANARCHY!

FREEDOM TO KEVIN AND JOAQUIN NOW!

CHILE: SENTENCIAN A 17 AÑOS A KEVIN GARRIDO Y 13 AÑOS A JOAQUÍN GARCÍA

Finalmente el pasado miércoles 5 de Septiembre se realizó la lectura de las sentencias contra los compañeros Kevin y Joaquín, estas condenas pueden ser apeladas, por el momento se desconoce el accionar a llevar a cabo por lxs abogadxs.

Las sentencias fueron las siguientes:

KEVIN GARRIDO FERNÁNDEZ: a 17 años de presidio mayor en su grado máximo como autor de los delitos de colocación de artefacto explosivo y posesión y tenencia de explosión. Además de 61 días de presidio menor en su grado mínimo por porte ilegal de arma punzante.

JOAQUÍN GARCÍA CHANKS: a 10 años de presidio mayor en su grado medio por colocación de artefactos explosivos y a 3 años de presidio mayor en su grado máximo por el delito de porte ilegal de armas de fuego.

Last trial of Sukoharjo defendants takes place (Indonesia)

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

07.08.18: The 7 prisoners from Sukorharjo charged for involvement in the the riots outside the PT. RUM synthetic cotton factory faced their final hearing on Tuesday, August 6th. The riots followed on from the demonstration that took place in front of the factory due to it emitting a foul, toxic odor. The demonstration descended into a chaotic riot that led to the torching of security posts and clashes with the police and soldiers. The 7 prisoners have been detained since their arrests in February 2018. The trial was chaired by Chief Judge Sigit Hariyanto. The sentences of the 7 prisoners were as follows:

1. Muhamad Hisbun Payau (Iss), a member of left-wing student organization Pembebasan, sentenced to two years and three months imprisonment.
2. Sutarno, a resident of Karanganyar, sentenced to two years imprisonment.
3. Brilian, a resident of Nguter, sentenced to two years imprisonment.
4. Bambang, a resident of Bulakrejo, sentenced to three years imprisonment and fined 10 million Rupiah.
5. Kelvin, a resident of Plesan, sentenced to two years and three months imprisonment.
6. Sukemi, a resident of Celep, sentenced to two years and three months imprisonment.
7. Danang, a resident of Nguter, sentenced to two years imprisonment and fined 10 million Rupiah.

The first 3 defendants were convicted for violating Article 406, paragraph (1) of the Indonesian Criminal Code regarding “the destruction of property belonging to another person”. The judge’s sentencing was lighter than the demands of Prosecutor Rohmadi who was seeking 4 years and two months imprisonment for Iss and 4 years imprisonment for Sutarno and Brilian.

The last 4 defendants were charged and convicted for violating Article 187, paragraphs (1) and (2) along with Article 170, paragraph (1) of the Criminal Code.
The sentences for Danang and Bambang were lower than what the Prosecutor was seeking – the Prosecutor was seeking 4 years imprisonment and a fine of 50 million Rupiah for Danang and 5 years imprisonment along with a 50 million Rupiah fine for Bambang.
