Shit likes to rub with shit –Published in Ricochets, No. 7, June 2015 (Brussels)

Shit likes to rub with shit –
Against the maxi prison, its supporters and its false criticsricochets7-page-001
Mid-May we were treated to a small avalanche of shit in the press. Journalists flocked to throw their light on the struggle against the maxi-prison. Scandalized by the fact that this struggle does not take legal paths and advocates direct action and self-organization to prevent the construction of the new prison hell, it does not address institutions and politicians but blazes its trail into the poor neighbourhoods of Brussels (and not only) and has nothing to share with journalists and everything to discuss with other rebels, they have not hesitated to describe it as “urban guerrilla” and the inevitable “terrorism” .
For the two years that this struggle persists, unlike all the political cliques and benevolent citizenists, we have not minced our words: to prevent this maxi-prison we need to conduct a direct offensive combat. Organize ourselves outside any formal structure, speak out in our own areas of struggle and in the streets (and not in front of the microphones of journalist hacks or sitting quietly around a table with our enemies), act through direct action and sabotage against the companies that want to build this maxi-prison and against all that encloses us in this city that looks more like an open air concentration camp each day.
It does not surprise us that this struggle proposal, and the sympathy and enthusiasm that it generates among all those who are sick of everything to do with this rotten system, displeases power greatly. The fact that it displeases reporters, these amplifiers of the voice of power, only makes us smile. That it makes developers and builders of this work of repression nervous is quite logical.
If they thought they could build this prison safely and applauded by everyone to make money on other people’s misery, they made a big mistake. If our response to the press has been to ignore them coldly and continue our struggle far from the cameras and the places the media like to gather like vultures (the hacks well know that they will be welcomed with stones in the neighbourhoods and so they rarely venture into them without the protection of their buddies in uniform), that of others opposing the maxi-prison has been very different.
As for the “symbolic occupation” (their own words) of the terrain of the future maxi-prison, many people have felt the need to declare in front of the cameras that they are opposed to “criminal acts” and are “pacifists.” So pacifist that they prefer to rub shoulders with magistrates (they even belong to the civic platform against the maxi-prison, these same judges who every day condemn people to die in jail), elected officials, journalists, cops rather than be associated with the “scum”, “criminals”, “illegal immigrants”, the “poor” and the “violent”.
“This amalgamating must stop,” said a spokesman of the legalistic opposition (who thinks he can stop the maxi-jail with shots of citizen participation, petitions, interviews, playful actions). Well, oddly, we agree: a deep abyss separates those who struggle autonomously and directly, agitating in the neighbourhoods and acting both by day and in the night, from those who prefer official conferences, a smaller maxi-prison, a few carrots. Day after day, action after action that abyss is widening: either you fight against the power that wants to impose this maxi-prison or you lick the ass of power, its laws and its defenders, regardless of the “good intentions” that you imagine they have.
“We have nothing to do with these actions” stated an “occupier” of the land in Haren, speaking of acts of sabotage against the companies and those responsible for the maxi-prison project. If he was already probably making an amalgam in assuming the right to speak on behalf of all the other occupants, he tried to torpedo a fundamental aspect of our struggle proposal: solidarity between rebels, hostility against the State and its henchmen. If others have claimed, still on invitation of the hacks, that self-organization and direct action “discredit the struggle,” the answer comes almost alone: but what struggle are you talking about? Not ours anyway.

Berlin -Germany- Rigaerstrasse: 25 years of self-organisation and resistance – Street Party 6-12 July

25jahreletztev2

Riga-POSTER

 Police will attack next week, because…
Dear groups, individuals and collectives „Es ist besser unsere Jugend besetzt leere Häuser als fremde Länder“ (In our youth it is better to squat empty houses than foreign countries“).

Under this motto some young people started squatting houses in Rigaestrasse and in the rest of Friedrichshain in the early 90’s, creating places where they could collectively live, organize andresist.

Particularly in the following years many of the squatted houses were evicted or pressed to sign contracts as a result of the so called „Berliner Line“ (Berliner Linie) which aimed to push people into a capitalistic (consumptive) lifestyle. Even the contracts didn’t prevent houses getting evicted in many cases. Netherless a few of the originally squatted houses persist as active spaces.

Belgium -Solidarity with the revolt in Nivelles prison

nivelles

 In the prison of Nivelles, on Sunday, June 21, 2015, prisoners made a move and refused to return to the cells after the yard. A dozen prisoners then climbed on to rooftops to shout their rebellion. The police intervened to dislodge them. The next day, one prisoner smashed his cell as a protest.
 A month ago, April 21, 2015 to be precise, another movement of prisoners paralyzed Nivelles prison when prisoners also refused to return to the cells.
 Solidarity with those who rebel against imprisonment!

Australia: Ravenhall prison riots

Melbourne, Australia: Solidarity with the Ravenhall Remand Centre rioters!
Melbourne, Australia, 01.07.15: Hundreds of prisoners at the Metropolitan Remand Centre in Ravenhall have rioted in response to a state-wide ban on smoking in all of the state of Victoria’s prison hell-holes. The prisoners attacked screws, lit fires, rammed an exit door, torched prison vehicles and stormed a control room during what the cops are describing as one of the biggest prison riots in recent history. All prison staff were evacuated from the prison and heavily armed police goon squads entered the prison deploying tear gas in an attempt to suppress the riot. The riot began at around 12:20PM on 30.06.15 and continued until 03:00AM on 01:07:15 when the cops finally suppressed the uprising. There are reports from the corporate scum media that several prisoners were injured in the riot and that at least 2 screws got battered. As a result of the riot the entire prison system in Victoria is now on complete lockdown.
In response to the riot a snap action was held at a traditional First Nations meeting spot in the inner-city Melbourne suburb of Collingwood by First Nations Liberation (FNL) and their supporters in solidarity with the rioting prisoners. In the state of Victoria, First Nations peoples only make up 1% of the population but make up 30% of Victoria’s prison population – this over-representation of First Nations people in the prison system is a direct result of the unceasing genocide that has been waged against First Nations people since the arrival of the colonists in the territories now commonly referred to as Australia in 1788. Afterwards a small group of anarchists painted graffiti on a nearby wall in solidarity with the rioters.
Solidarity and strength to the Ravenhall rioters who kept the screws and heavily armed cops at bay for almost 15 hours armed only with makeshift weapons, their fists and a fierce will to resist! 
Fire To The Prisons! Destroy The Prison Society!

Czech Republic – Prague: Comrade I. is arrested in new detention case

Via:325
Yesterday, 29.6.2015, the district court of Prague 6 ruled to put Comrade I. in custody.
I. was accused in another case of repression of ‘ultra-left extremism’.
He was taken on Friday in and charged on Sunday.
According to the police, I. took part in the ‘attack’ on the house of the minister of defense of Czech republic with Molotov cocktails. (8.6.2015)
There are no photos nor videos of this ‘attack’. There was no actual fire, despite 4 bottles having been thrown.
No other evidence of the ‘attack’ has been made public, nobody claimed responsibility for it.
With the knowledge, that the alleged planning of an attack on a military train was staged by infiltrated police agents, this ‘attack’ looks suspicious.
The fact that I. is a Russian citizen, plays into the context of political discourse rather suspiciously well.
I. got the worst type of custody with very strict conditions.
More info in English soon.

Text of Revolutionary Struggle member Nikos Maziotis regarding Greece’s default and exit from the EMU

via:contrainfo
The SYRIZA-led government is collapsing. The Greek default and exit from the Eurozone, as choice of the lenders, is a process that started in 2010 and currently marks the beginning of the end of the SYRIZA government. The implementation of the memoranda from 2010 was one phase in the process of orderly default that the supranational economic elite had chosen, in order to ensure the sustainability of the Euro and to cut off one member that due to the debt crisis is considered gangrened and has to be expelled. Essentially, Greece’s default has always been regarded by the supranational economic elite as a prerequisite for its salvation, without even breaking the country’s obligations to the lenders, something that was ensured by the inclusion of the country into the power of the IMF, the ECB and the European Commission. Since 2009, Greece was already a bankrupt country and this was something known by both the then government of Georgios Papandreou and the European Union. The supranational economic elite, from 2010 onwards, followed an orderly default tactic so as to safeguard the lenders, the then holders of Greek bonds, the French, German, British and American banks.
The first aim of the memorandum was that it prohibited unilateral suspension of debt payments on the part of the debtor. On that basis, all of the Greek state-owned assets were frozen to ensure the repayment of the debt.
Additionally the debt passed from Greek to Anglo-Saxon law, prohibiting its conversion from Euro into any undervalued national currency. The Greek state gave up national sovereignty over its assets, all of which were transferred to the jurisdiction of the lenders. By granting the prior loan of 110 billion euros and replacing the old debt with a new one, the second objective of the memorandum was the repayment of the then holders of Greek bonds and the transfer of debt to the international organizations, the IMF, the ECB, and the European Union member states. With this process of extension of Greece’s default, the holders of Greek bonds, who investment-wise had junk bonds on their hands, were able to get rid of them with the least possible losses.

France, Besançon (Doubs): Town Hall in flames after two Molotovs are thrown inside it

0-18

via:cettesemaine.info
France Info, Thursday, June 25, 2015
A man threw two Molotov cocktails into the historic Town Hall of Besançon (Doubs) this Thursday lunchtime, triggering a fire. He was quickly arrested by police. Firefighters have limited the damage to the town hall and are still on site.
The historic town hall of Besançon (Doubs) has been the target of arson. Around noon on Thursday, a man came to the reception and asked an employee to leave. According to police, the individual then threw two Molotov cocktails in the ground floor of the building. There were no injuries, but one person is in shock. Very quickly the flames reached the first floor and attic of the building. Forty fire fighters were dispatched to the scene. Two people had to be taken to hospital after breathing thick black smoke. The arsonist was soon stopped by police. He is “well known” to police services for misdeeds in the city centre of Besancon. He is a refugee from Cameroon.
The historic City Hall of Besançon, is a few hundred metres from the current town hall which hosts the administrative services.

From Bien public 26/06/2015 at 07:10
…According to our information, he would be a Cameroonian political refugee. A writer aged 46 years, forced to flee his country after publishing a scathing attack on the extravagant lifestyle of the First Lady of Cameroon, Chantal Biya, in 2010. Thrown in prison, he had applied for asylum in France but seemed unsatisfied with the welcome received.
Believing he does not receive enough assistance to set up his own publishing house due to his alleged inability to access the world of national editions, he has multiplied his escapades in Besançon in recent months. It is not known why he was harassing the town hall while the Doubs prefecture has granted him special monitoring and assistance. Many times arrested, complaints have piled up against his behaviour. But above all, his wishes seem contradictory. In a letter to the Interior minister, Bernard Cazeneuve, published on a blog site Mediapart in April 2014, Zéphirin Bertrand Teyou stated in a peremptory fashion, “Rather than live as a slave with you, I would rather live as a wreck back home.”

Czech Republic: New arson attack by Network of Revolutionary Cells in Prague

SRB Communique: The fourth arson attack on Řízkárnu
Network of Revolutionary Cells / SRB have conducted another arson attack at a Řízkárna restaurant in Prague. At dawn on Friday, June 26, another car was torched at Řízkárny. Responsibility for the sabotage is claimed by N95 Cell. V. Krulec acquired cars and other equipment for his restaurant via the unpaid work of his employees. The sabotage was carried out in order to decommission the car so that he could not use it for the further exploitation and robbery of workers.
Sabotage is both a means of defense and of attack. It is one of many methods that can be accessed by angry proletarians in the fight against the capitalist filth.

Turin, Italy – Of the four comrades arrested following resistance to a police raid, two are to remain in prison and two have been transferred to house arrest

macerie @ June 23, 2015
The response of the magistrate to the release instance filed by lawyers for Erika, Paolo, Toshi and Marco, in jail after the negative outcome of the Review, came a little sooner than expected. [The comrades were remanded in custody on 20th May 2015 following their resistance to a police raid against undocumented migrants that took place on 2nd February 2015.] If Erika had had to extend her stay in the nation’s prisons on pretext of a technical defect, the news came today that not only for her but also for Mark the custodial measure has been converted. Both will get out later in the day to remain under house arrest, of course with all the restrictions as has been the case for Luigi. There was certainly little better to expect; these days when even such a tiny investigation as this becomes an opportunity to get rid of ‘some incurable pain in the neck’ for a while, it would be rather naive to think that they could be freed in a short time. We are not surprised then that for Paul and Toshi the prison doors have still not opened.
To write them, here are their addresses:
      Paolo Milan – c/o C.C. Via Sforzesca, 49 – 28100 Novara
Toshiyuki Hosokawa – c/o C.C. Viale dei Tigli, 14 – 13900 Biella

Udine, Italy – IT attack on the power of attorney with extortion intent

  From the local media (“Messaggero Veneto” online, 11th June 2015) we learned about an IT attack on the computers of the prosecutor’s office of Udine, carried out through a new version of Crypt0L0cker (the targets of the attack were prosecutors’ offices all over Italy and several other public and private bodies).
The virus has recently struck the computers of two judges from Friuli with a precise aim: grab everything contained in their hardware (judicial stuff of various kinds), encrypt it and keep it ‘seized’ until a ransom is paid, i.e. until the judges pay between 300 euros and a thousand euros, the amount generally required to get seized files back (however in previous similar cases files were not returned).
It is sufficient for recipients to click a link in their e-mail to make the system go haywire, irremediably blocking it and obscuring it.

The militarisation of the European borders: the daily terror in Morocco
In this period, where thousands of people cross the Mediterranean Sea, the European Union and the so-called international community continue to spend millions of euros to “secure” the borders and to prevent the assaults on the continent by these “rogue migrants”. As recent reports have revealed, the EU ministries and heads of state are planning a military intervention in the Mediterranean in order to destroy the boats of alleged “smugglers” with the help of the dynamic FRONTEX agency.

Athens -We claim responsibility for the incendiary attack on the central offices of Eurobank on Ilias Iliou street in Neos Kosmos on 23.5.15 Saturday night.

Responsibility Claim for the attack on Eurobank on 23/5/15

We claim responsibility for the incendiary attack on the central offices
of Eurobank on Ilias Iliou street in Neos Kosmos on Saturday night.

The attack was carried out for Adonis Avrabos, Babis Deftereos and
Delilai Ramadan, workers murdered at El.PE. (Greek Petroleum), owned by
Latsis, who also has major stock in Eurobank.

The capital executes workers on the shrine of profit and the State
serves its murderous plans.

We have no illusions, capitalism cannot be beautified, but subverted.

War on the State and capital for the subversion of capitalist brutality,
for the utopia of tomorrow…

The State and capital murder 4 workers at EL.PE (Greek Petroleum) – Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki, 31-5 and 1-6 there were interventions, slogans, banners and posters at six bank branches of Eurobank, Hellenic Petroleum, at the factory (of murderer Latsis), as well as government offices of Syriza in Thessaloniki for the responsibilities of State and capital in killing four workers and injuring two others in the  refineries  of Aspropyrgos in Athens on 8-5.
Following is the text and pictures of the interventions:

49b3ebd11404009cc11c73f9e337e225169df4b0b2710c484b6b0f6adb037e58293db66974ca537939ac169fc88d0c18335efd2abae9ab9031dace5a6876396c747e562d359c3e3893f9eaed1e4bd94d37837d0acebe86411bab17be33b102fd70497e60c4e6dbeba8da36a2c2a9a65fa529d49b9d9c3f133ce26e8f79eb3c032a8660bb5e57f1b7da881ab2cd96950c6a7a232c019f63311994fd2eed274b1e

   The State and capital murder 4 workers at EL.PE (Greek Petroleum) elpe
These murders are added to the dozens of murdered workers in Latsis’ galleys. They are added to the hundreds of workers murdered in the galleys of the shipowners, major businessmen, industrialists such as Latsis, Vardinogiannis, Marinakis, Fessas, Kontominas, Alafouzos etc. In a list where deaths are simply numbers, a piece of an equation that geometrically increases the figures of domestic and transnational capital.
The activities of this criminal organization do not stop here however. Profits are intertwined with exploitation, and exploitation is inextricably linked with blood. Thus the development that this mob represents is the humiliating labour conditions in the galleys of waged slavery without security measures and with the lowest possible wages, it is the plunder of nature with the destruction of natural sources, it is the countless murders of every form of life. Because powerful Greece – which means the maintenance of domestic capital in order to safeguard the security of the transnational- needs sacrifices.
From the pre-olymic games works of 2004 up to every galley of TITAN, AGET IRAKLIS, EL.PE, the dead workers send only one message: only organization and multiform struggle for social and class counter-attack against the State and capital will be the shrine for this atrocity.
Silence is compliance.
No peace with domestic or transnational capital.
Struggle for the Social Revolution and Anarchy.

Mexico City – Incendiary attack against a Banamex bank branch

June 12th, after midnight.
Using a simple weapon we decided to attack against the Banamex bank branch located at the junction of Sullivan Avenue and the inner-city motorway Circuito Interior, in the heart of the city. We stood right in front of their vigilance system: patrol cars that move around surveilling the avenue one after another, cameras observing us on every street, in every step… living-dead passersby who would trust the cops before any strange incident.
Sullivan Avenue is one of the traditional spots of street prostitution in Mexico City, not to forget of course that our target is located some blocks away from the premises of the Superior Court of Justice for cases of misdemeanors. All in all, this could make us believe that a meeting face to face with the enemy is impossible in a zone like this one, nevertheless with violent joy we experiment in the present the freedom that confronts the order of the status quo.
After the attack the police launched an operation that only managed to demonstrate their inefficacy and stupidity, since we escaped through the streets having the night as an accomplice.
