Italy – Poster in solidarity with imprisoned anarchists Gianluca and Adriano

From informa-azione.info

Translated by act for freedom now

To order copies write to: villavegansquat@inventati.

 Poster reads:

Millions of cars lined up in traffic jams, massive industrial pollution, concrete poured on nature to make space for highways, rail-tracks, shopping malls, prisons, schools and technological sites; toxic and nuclear waste poured in rivers and on the earth, genetically modified animals used in scientific experiments or for organ transplants, millions of other animals imprisoned and killed every year to satisfy futile consumerism; expropriation of peoples’ lands in Africa, Asia and South America by western governments and multinationals, wars waged to grab  the last energy resources, new chemical and technological weapons tested on entire populations by imperialist powers, chemicals and carcinogens in the food we eat, genetically modified plants bombarded with pesticides to boost production, forests raised to the ground to make space for intensive one-crop plantations and gold mines…

 IS THIS PROGRESS OR DEVASTATION?

 Long years spent in schools, offices, factories not much different form prisons, or in front of cell phone screens, computers and TV, entrapped in a flat life made of work, family and programmed entertainment, we are turning into machines that produce and consume and are becoming accomplices of a system that kills and devastates the world, in exchange for miserable technological comforts that can’t make us happy.

 IS THIS FREEDOM OR ALIENATION?

 Always on the side of those who ‘still have ears for things unheard’, are always rebel and hostile to the power of civilization, and choose to act for a free and wild life.

 SOLIDARITY WITH GIANLUCA AND ADRIANO

Mexico, 5E: Update on the beginning of the trial

translated from Spanish by sabotagemedia

April 3 and 4 were the dates indicated as the start of the trial for Amelie, Fallon and Carlos, arrested on Jan. 5.
For the first hearing, on April 3, the police officers who made the arrest were summoned to testify so to start the presentation of evidence. However, at 11am, the appointed time, no cops showed up, suspending the hearing. On April 4 only one of the summoned expert witnesses was present. New dates for the hearings were set for April 28 and 29.
During the night of April 3 Carlos was moved to the general prison population area. The compañerxs could be seen through the cracks in the railing.The no-show of testifying cops and experts is a strategy of delaying the judicial proceedings which have already been used before in trials against other compañerxs. It is a way to try to erode solidarity. Therefore, we call to continue solidarity with all compañerxs kidnapped by the Mexican government in its prisons.
Solidarity with Carlos, Amelie and Fallon!
Solidarity with Mario González!
Freedom for the Octobre 2 prisoners!

Information up dates of the trial concerning the ATE Bank robbery in Purgetos (Greece)

 Translated by Imprisoned Anarchist Giannis Naxakis

Report of the trial concerning the ATE Bank robbery in Purgetos (Greece)

 *The trial is taking place inside Korydallos prison in the “special court” designed for “dangerous” prisoners. Accused of the robbery are two anarchists, Grigoris Sarafoudis and Yannis Naxakis.
 On Monday 31/3 the first actual hearing took place. The three first witnesses (bank manager and clerks) were examined. They didn’t recognize in the face of G.Sarafoudis any of the perpetrators of the robbery (Y.Naxakis refuses to participate in the procedure and is absent from the courtroom). How could they recognize them though since the perpetrators were wearing hoods?
To the questions asked by the judge to the first witness, she categorically answered ‘no’ when asked about any chance of her distinguishing any characteristic of the two perpetrators. The questions from the juridical side continued without any outcome. Then the questions moved on to the possibility of recognition of the body shape of G.Sarafoudis but once again there was no outcome since the witnesses said they saw two really tall men.
The witnesses also categorically denied seeing any of the perpetrators carrying a mobile phone or a hands-free speaker set (material that was found at the scene and on which the DNA of G.Sarafoudis was supposedly found). They also said that they were not threatened during the robbery and that they saw the action once again on a DVD copied from the CCTV recording system. But the DVD doesn’t exist in the file with the relevant documents. It looks like the antiterrorist police didn’t find any incriminating evidence on the video against the two accused comrades and decided to make it disappear…
The trial continued on the 2nd of April. Three more witnesses were examined. A man who lives across the street from the bank, a woman who lives on the top floor of the building where the bank is situated (who also owns the premises and works as a cleaner in the bank) who was at home during the robbery, and an undercover cop from Larissa (biggest nearby city) police headquarters.
The cop claimed that he went to investigate the scene after the robbery the same day but it looks like he never actually did.

Letter by K.Gournas member of the Revolutionary Struggle and D.Koufodinas member of the R.O. 17November concerning the legislation about the prisons – Athens

Translated by Act for freedom now!
The legislation for the prisons creates the greek Guantanamo.
Those incarcerated in these special kinds of the prisons:
 -Are deprived of all rights the other prisoners have (days of leave, probation etc.)
 -Have their visitation rights and phone calls minimized (almost eliminated).
 -Remain locked in their cells for up to 23 hours a day.
 A special police force comes into these prisons with classified duties and authorities.
 This asphyxiating regime of detainment reminds us…. of the american Guantanamo. This legislation of Samaras, Dendias and Athanasiou is of fascist inspiration. Its an expression of a state of permanent emergency. It is the equivalent memorandum for the prisoners.
The micro-society of prison would not be unscathed by the full on attack on greek society. The moment that at a global scale neo-liberal capitalism, in order to overcome the crisis steps on decades of vested rights, applies to greek society the most inhuman version of this strategy.
 This strategy leaves no decompression valves, on the contrary it compresses, besides human dignity, every desire for resistance. This logic expresses the legislation for the prisons: it creates the fear of C type prisons. Fear for the prisoners, but also all of the fighting society. First target of the legislation is the isolation of political prisoners. Its prototype is the model structured for those arrested in the summer of 2002 for the 17November.
 Its aim is to legalize and standardize a similar regime of isolation. So the resonance of the political prisoners does not reach the society which seeks anti-systemic directions. However, just like in 2002 the struggles of the prisoners and the solidarity movement subverted these plans, reversing the political isolation, this is what will happen now too.

 We call for all political prisoners, fighting prisoners, the solidarity movement, the fighting society to unite their voice and actions, so this fascist legislation does not pass. This Struggle is a piece of the struggle against the memorandums that destroy all of society.

 P.S. The legislation is applied to the prisons before its even voted in. The cutting of leave days, the closing of every decompression valve, already lead to tragic results: the knife in Malandrino prisons was held by the three who had the inspiration for this legislation.

ATHENS, Greece — Suspected domestic exploded a car bomb outside a Bank of Greece building in the heart of Athens 11.4.14

ATHENS, Greece  — Suspected domestic exploded a car bomb outside a Bank of Greece building in the heart of Athens Thursday, causing damage but no injuries in a brazen attack hours before a landmark bond issue by the financially struggling country.

No group claimed responsibility for the 6 a.m. (0300GMT) explosion, which shattered windows in the central bank branch and buildings up to 200 meters away, and left the charred remnants of a car with only two wheels still recognizable.

Chile – Poster in memory of Anarcho-Nihilist comrade Sebastian Oversluij (Pelao Angry)

Chile – Poster in memory of Sebastian Oversluij

Translated from Italian by act for freedom now

OUR MEMORY IS BLACK!

SO IS OUR HEART

 ‘We have ideas, we have instruments …We must learn to use both and create revolt every day. We must create now the life we want to live… Let’s start living the life we want’  Pelao Angry

 Anarcho-Nihilist comrade Sebastian Oversluij (Pelao Angry) took part in the storming of a bank in Pudahuel on 11th December 2013. As the comrade was trying to expropriate the wealth of capital he was executed by William Vera, a miserable guard who was there to defend the privileges of the bosses.

 Let’s go on with our denials and struggles.

Let’s take back our lives from the enemies of Freedom.

Italy – Operation Ardire: All Anarchists comrades free from precautionary measures

 From informa-azione.info

Translated by act for freedom now

We receive and transmit:
Today (8th April) all precautionary measures inflicted on the comrades investigated following operation ”Ardire” have been revoked. Alessandro, Elisa, Stefano, Peppe and Sergio were still subjected to reporting daily to the police station and residing in their hometown. We got confirmation that four comrades are no longer subjected to these restrictions, whereas we haven’t got any confirmation regarding Sergio. However there’s no reason to believe that he constitutes an exception. We also add that the investigation is still on-going.
Updates will follow.

Italy –Communiqué from anarchist comrade Adriano, locked up in the AS2 unit of the prison of Ferrara

From:il-neroveleno

Translated by act for freedom now

What follows is a communiqué that Adriano, locked up in the AS2 unit of the prison of Ferrara, sent us on 25th March, the day after he was transferred in order to attend the preliminary hearing at the court of Rome in the trial he’s facing along with Gianluca.

To write to the comrade:
Adriano Antonacci
C.C. Via Arginone 327

Italy
Violence generates violence. Regardless of what is right or wrong, no matter how abstruse is the boundary between opposites and how easily they can converge. The word violence and the concept it expresses present deep mystifications to those who have the monopoly on it.  All expressions of dissent are being disproportionately repressed… no surprise… ‘go and tell them that it’s springtime’ [rough translation of ‘vagli a spiegare che è primavera’, a verse by the late anarchist singer and song-writer Fabrizio De Andrè].
The modus operandi of cops and politicians is infamous enough, with their artistic architecture made of inexistent castles in the sky, and their accusing anarchists of belonging to imaginary associations; and with the judiciary of the State-Capital, servile and functional to miserable power, advocate and perpetrator of the dictates of dominion.

Mexico, 5E: Update on next trial dates and Carlos’ situation

sabotagemedia receives this translation from Spanish
 A few weeks have passed from he last time we updated the case of the anarchists detained on the 5th of January (5E).
Here’s the update:
Once the Attorney General of the Republic couldn’t find sufficient evidence to keep the charges of terrorism and organized delinquency against the three, they were assigned to the Mexico City Attorney General and accused of property destruction and attacks on the public peace.
Their trial is now on the stage of presentation of evidence and their first hearing will be the second or third of April.
Amelie and Fallon were taken to the women’s prison of Santa Martha and Carlos to the Oriente prison.
Amelie and Fallon are in the area of general population. Carlos continues in the area of Observation and Classification.
We want to expand a bit on Carlos’ situation, explaining a bit more about the conditions that are lived by thousands of prisoners in the jails of Mexico City.
On these centers of imprisonment exists a great network of corruption and complicity between the authorities and some prisoners, who reproduce the logic of the jail by assuming the role of jailers of the rest of the prisoner. This network of corruption and complicity, not only serves to strengthen the disciplinary role of prisons, but it is also a great business, as the majority of prisoners are forced to pay for everything: visits, roll call etc. in exchange they will not be beaten by those other prisoners who enjoy the protection of the authorities, and who receive in exchange part of that money. These prisoners maintain control of practically everything in the jail.
A few days ago, we heard that Carlos had a problem with a prisoner, and had a scuffle with him, which then led to the prison guards to beat both of them up and locking them up for 9 hours in solitary confinement. Once they were released from solitary confinement, Carlos was taken from the intake area for classification. There he was required to pay so that he could skip the cleaning task known as “fajina” Our comrade decided not to pay. The “fajina” consists of cleaning a determined area but under the frame of tough exercises. During the first day of the “fajina” Carlos was once again beaten up by the prisoners, who were trying to make him buckle so that he would end up paying.
Today we know that our comrade is sick, as a result of the humidity in solitary confinement and he has back pains due to the beatings. But he remains strong and firm in his convictions.
Amelie and Fallon have not gone through similar situations.
We call to express our solidarity with the 5e detainees. We will continue updating their situation.
Freedom for Carlos, Amelie and Fallon!
Solidarity with Mario González!
A greeting to our comrade Tripa, may you never stop!

Medellin, Colombia – Video on the ‘Jornadas contras la brutalidad policial y el terrorismo de Estado’ [Days against police brutality and State terrorism]

 From RadioAzione
Translated by act for freedom now
 I receive and transmit a video made by comrades from Medellin (Colombia) on ‘Jornadas contras la brutalidad policial y el terrorismo de Estado’. First I want to remind that the site of RadioAzione usually doesn’t show videos of clashes and demonstrations in order not to be an ‘unwilling helper’ of repression. This time, even if we don’t agree on certain things, we think it important to spread them also to inform on forms of anarchism in territories of which not much is being said:

Bologna, Italy – ‘Operation Outlaw’ against Fuoriluogo: all comrades acquitted!

From informa-azione.info
Translated by act for freedom now
 We receive and transmit:
WE TOOK BACK SOME OF THE ILL-GOTTEN GAINS!
In the afternoon of Monday March 31 the court of Bologna pronounced the sentence on 21 comrades on trial since 2011 for organized crime with purposes of terrorism. We were all acquitted.
In April 2011, following the repressive operation called ‘Outlaw’, the anarchist place Furoiluogo on Via San Vitale 80 was closed down, 5 comrades were arrested and 7 banned from the city with prohibition of residence. There followed 3 years of police harassment with the obvious and stated attempt of denying us any space of viability in this city.
Today, after the sentence of which many people were waiting for the result in the piazza, we took back a space, which was also taken away from the comrades 15 years ago. It is the premises of an anarchist circled named after Carlo Cafiero, which hosted the Libreria Circolante [circulating library]. In the mid-sixties it had been rented by Libero Fantazzini and other anarchist comrades. The council of Bologna rented it at a low price in order to compensate for the historical premises of Porta Galliera, closed down during the fascist regime. The place, known as Laboratorio Anarchico Paglietta, was seized in June 1999 and subsequently closed down with bricks and concrete following an investigation leading to the imprisonment of two comrades. For over thirty years it had been used by anarchist groups and individuals and animated with activities, meetings and sharing of life. As often happens, the judicial procedure ended in nothing, but the place remained walled up and inaccessible, and a piece of history of the city also ended with it.
On the day of the sentence we took back a place that had been taken away from the pleasure and need of using it; a space where to meet, discuss and find the way to effectively oppose a system that oppresses, starves people, devastates the environment and demeans life; a place where to continue to struggle for a world completely different form this one.

Chile – Demo outside the court and the prison in solidarity with imprisoned comrades

 From RadioAzione
Translated by act for freedom now

 

Anti-prison propaganda and mobilization outside the prison in solidarity with the prisoners of ‘Caso Security’
15th March 2014
In the context of the Day of Unrest and Solidarity we decided to make a simple and direct act so that the guards watching our brothers have no doubts. Even if we understand that the judicial mafia is the perpetrator of the lynching, we thought it important to demonstrate outside the prison, which is the same building hosting (in)justice courts, the maximum security prison, the Ex-Penitenciaria and the prison/enterprise Santiago 1. We gave out about10,000 leaflets, thus showing we don’t forget about those who make their job out of torture and kidnapping.
As our imprisoned comrades are hostages of the State, it is important that the guards know about us so that they don’t attack or harass our prisoners. Rebellion and dignity overcome any bars and orders.
Let’s increase solidarity in anticipation of the trial against Freddy, Marcelo and Juan!
We won’t let comrade Carlos Gutierrez Quiduleo alone!
All revolutionary prisoners out of the jails of democracy!

Berlin: Arson attack on Santander bank branch

From:contrainfo
On the night to March 6, 2014, we set fire to a Santander bank branch in Neukölln, Berlin. We destroyed a windowpane and ignited a delayed-action incendiary device. We dedicate this action to the captured and murdered by the capitalist system in Chile and Spain.
First off, to Tamara Sol and Sebastián Oversluij Seguel:
‘On the morning of December 11, 2013, anarchist comrade Sebastián Oversluij Seguel was shot dead in Pudahuel, a suburb of Santiago, during an attempted bank robbery. A private security guard of Banco Estado killed the 26-year-old with six gunshots. Since then, there were numerous reactions from the anarchist movement on this murder. On January 21, 2014, comrade Tamara Sol Farías Vergara walked into a branch of the same bank in the centre of Santiago, and opened fire on the guard while she cried out: “Revenge!” Then, she is said to have taken the security guard’s weapon. Shortly thereafter, she was arrested. Tamara refused any cooperation with the authorities, and is held in preventive detention.’
(excerpt from an article in German about Chile’s Day of Combatant Youth)
‘Complicity’ video was released from the movement, on the murder of Sebastián and the retaliatory action that Tamara is charged with.
Recently (on February 3, 2014), the Vergara Toledo family from Villa Francia, Santiago, expressed themselves in an open letter regarding the arrest and current situation of Tamara.
Since the assassination of Sebastián, Alfonso Alvial and Hermes González are held in preventive detention.
In addition, we would like to mention Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar. After an operation launched by Chilean and Spanish authorities, they are incarcerated in Spain before trial; both were already prosecuted in Chile in the Caso Bombas construct.
Greetings also to the accused in the Caso Security (Chile), and to activists in Barcelona that, like us, consider banks suitable for solidarity actions.
Santander, as the largest bank in the Spanish-speaking world, is responsible for forced evictions and warranties for arms deals. This is also a good reason for us to see the fights here and there as our common struggle. Institutions that put the Capital before human life will always be targets of our attacks.

Athens, Greece: Protest action at Koridallos men’s and women’s prisons

The State murders prisoners – Ilir Kareli

(A) We don’t forget, we don’t forgive (N)

Fire to the hellholes, bombs on the courts – A.C.A.B.

The blood is still flowing seeking revenge

If not now, when?

On Monday, March 31st, 2014, men incarcerated in the A wing as well as women inmates of Koridallos prisons refused to return to the cells after the end of time on prison yards, staying outside for one hour (from 11am to 12pm) as a sign of mourning and rage over the recent death of their fellow prisoner Ilia (Ilir) Kareli.
In the A wing of Koridallos men’s prison, slogans were painted on walls of the yard while inmates shouted slogans such as “And now one slogan that unites us all: cops, pigs, murderers,” “The blood is still flowing seeking revenge,” “Fire and arson to all the prison cells.”
Footage from these moments:
In the women’s prison, inmates chanted slogans against cops, prisons, Golden Dawn thugs, like: “Fire and arson to all the prison cells,” “Fascist scum, soon you will be hanged at gallows”, “Rage and consciousness, negation and violence bring chaos and anarchy,” “The States are the only terrorists; solidarity with armed guerrillas,” “Fire and blast at this brothel.”
Below is the text of men and women prisoners from Koridallos which was sent to the ministry.
Prisoners’ announcement to the ministry of Justice:
Only a few days after the brutal assassination of our co-prisoner Ilia Kareli, and while his blood from the beatings of his torturers is still fresh, nobody from the ministry of Justice has done anything regarding this killing. That’s why today the 31st of March we men/women prisoners in Koridallos will stay outside in the yards until noon, for one hour after lock up time, as a sign of protest.
We demand that the ministry apologize publicly to the murdered prisoner’s family, and find and punish the uniformed murderers that killed Ilia Kareli. We owe it to our dead fellow inmate, to ourselves and the dozens of prisoners who were tortured and lost their lives in the correctional galleys. We will either fight for our rights, or we will die slowly inside the prisons.
Men/women prisoners of Koridallos
PS: The mobilization against the fascist bill of the ministry of Justice for type C prisons continues until victory.

Italy – Serious provocation on those who struggle: video conference at the trial against anarchist comrades Gianluca and Adriano

From http://www.inventati.org/rete_evasioni/?p=1398
 Translated by act for freedom now
 On March 26 the preliminary hearing of the trial against Gianluca and Adriano was held at the court in Rome. The two comrades are accused of ‘conspiracy with purposes of terrorism and subversion of the democratic order’, and they are also charged with arson, aggravated theft, defacement and damage to property of others. This refers to thirteen actions carried out in the Castelli Romani area against banks, a fur coats shop, premises of ENI and ENEL and against the waste dump in Albano.
The trial at the court of the assizes will start on 26th May. In the indictment, judge for preliminary investigation D’alessandro made the grave decision of ordering the comrades be present at the trial via video conference. This decision is allegedly due to a document issued by the Director General of Prison Service, which establishes the recourse to this measure as a means of restraint of the ‘more dangerous’ prisoners, following the escape of Domenico Cutrì, during a judicial transfer. From now on this measure could be applied to all prisoners detained in high surveillance units.
