On 8 June 2017 activists gathered in Omonoia Sq. at the center of Athens, Greece in a protest purported to send a solidarity message to Squats across the world. “During the last month we have witnessed the State escalating its anti-immigration policy of restrictions against refugees and the solidarity movement in Greece. While the greek government continues to show its totalitarian face exerting repression through the eviction of political squats and housing squats accommodating refugees (in contrast to refugees being locked up in concentration camps), new information has been intentionally leaked to the mass media revealing the existence of court orders that will give the green light to evict at least three more squats across Greece during the summer of 2017.
Collectif d’anarchistes solidaires mais pas responsables, pirates de l’ère anticapitaliste sans frontières, à la conquête de l’ailleurs.
During the night of july 17 2017, we attacked the Embassy of Germany, in Paris, in solidarity with no-G20 prisoners, rising against G20 and its world.
That starry night, you could hear « pshiiit, bam, boum » rue marbeau. Bim ! A « Welcome 2 Hell » was tagged on the embassy wall, the windows were broken and the public access door was fired up with cocktail molotov, with less time it takes to find a lighter in a pocket.
Last Tuesday, July 11th, we left an incendiary ‘offering’ at the door of a church located on the intersection of Dorrego and Corrientes avenues.
We carried out this action taking into account the proximity with the disgusting date of the fatherland, July 9th, and the recent imprisonment of Facundo Jones Huala.
Nothing more than a small gesture in the face of the growing repression and the civilizing advance of the states, in this case the Chilean and Argentine.
Free Facundo Jones Huala!
For the defense of the Earth!

– Let’s disarticulate the world of authority
Throughout the many years we’ve been working on issues such as environmentalism, nocivities and technology, we’ve always thought that the starting point preliminary to any trajectory of struggle was that of clarifying, among various positions of critique, the difference between those who want to struggle against the system of exploitation and those who on the contrary strengthen it by giving it possible way outs.
For example, when talking about nocivities, the work undertaken by most environmentalists and some eco radicals is certainly the most emblematic and significant case of how the system has not only recuperated some instances, but it has also succeeded in intervening and transforming reality in the name of these very instances. In the years animalism and a good part of anti-specism have also joined.
I want to thank you again for your solidarity and the support you have expressed in different ways from the beginning and especially during this trial, both inside the courtroom and from a distance.
These gestures have filled me with energy and warmth in so many moments and greatly increased my conviction that the struggle will always continue, in whatever condition and regardless of the obstacles that get in the way.
Precisely because I know exactly how justice works and the persecutory mania of the State, and as in this trial the court, the prosecution, the cops and the press needed culprits, I feel a lot of anger. Anger towards that miserable and totally unequal world in which the law of the powerful is imposed on us. Anger towards that system of punishment, oppression and confinement of all those who don’t fit into it. Anger about all the manipulation, the farce and the lies that feed public opinion … and of course, more anger for so many other things.
It has struck me this time, but at other times it will strike others and maybe even every single one of us, especially those who follow their path with dignity and strength. But we will not let the State and its followers bend us.
Prison is never the end; these aggravated conditions push us to continue defending the life and values that we represent even more.
The struggle continues, both here inside as outside, until all prisons collapse and all forms of domination and authority are destroyed.
A lot of strength and solidarity to all the comrades imprisoned and persecuted everywhere!
Freedom for all.

Today, on June 7, 2017, the judge delivered the verdict in the case against our comrades accused of robbing a PaxBank in Aachen in 2014. If one comrade has come out free, our sister and comrade was sentenced to seven and a half years in prison.
What this sentence has clearly shown is that they wanted to condemn not only deeds, but also ideas, our anarchist ideas, solidarity and the attitude of non-collaboration with the authorities.
Despite their intention to strike and repress our ideas and anarchist practices, for our part, we remain and will remain proud and convinced of who we are and why we are fighting.
This is what we demonstrated with our cries of rage and solidarity in the courtroom, in response to the dignity of our comrade who greeted us with her head high and fist raised as she was taken away. In court we expressed all our contempt for what it represents. We hope that this storm of rage, hatred and of love for the comrade blows strong and spreads throughout this cursed world.
Freedom for our comrades, war with our enemies!
Anarchists in solidarity
From my heart, thanks to everyone for the support that was given to me, as well as all the warmth and love that I felt. This was essential to strengthen my resilience against all the oppression I was submitted to.
We’re not all out, the prisoners are missing!
Freedom to All prisoners!
All strength to those facing repression!
Prison demolition and reforestation!

If silence is frightening, it is perhaps because the absence of familiar sounds tends to reject us on ourselves. When we advance in the silent darkness, it is not uncommon for us to speak to ourselves, to whistle a little refrain, to think out loud not to find ourselves a prey to the anguish. This is not easy and may even require some exercise, as our brains have been conditioned to identify silence with danger, darkness with risk. It is the anguish that the emptiness provokes, the feeling of being on the edge of the abyss and not being able to turn our eyes away from the abyss that opens before us. Yet it is also at such times that one tends to be closer to oneself, without an intermediary, with a presence of mind and emotion much more assertive.
It is difficult to find silence or obscurity in the modern world. Industrial noises always accompany us, the devices emit their electronic sounds permanently, and if not, there is almost always one to fill the void with gossip as impenetrable as superficial. Today, the fear of the void, the anguish of silence is sublimated by permanent connectivity. Never alone, never in silence, never before the abyss. And so, never face to face with ourselves. Calls and voices from the “inside,” the whole universe of imagination, consciousness, sensitivity, reflection, are rendered mute, ignored, flattened and replaced by the continuous bombardment of information, E-mails, appointments, consumer warnings, and reminders. Thus, the modern world is completing the inner universe of the individual.

IIRSA: Infrastructure of Devastation (South America)
97.7% of the South American territory is being transformed forever. And with that, the totality of our lives. The IIRSA (South American Regional Infrastructure Initiative) is a mega-project at the continental level, carried out by all the South American states with the support, financing and coordination of the International Monetary Fund, an imperialist platform that generates the guidelines of the world economy. Its objective is to redesign the geography of the continent by creating a whole new network of infrastructures to facilitate, expedite and intensify the extraction of the so-called natural resources, which are nothing more than the elements that make life possible in this territory. Through the construction of roads, ports, hydro and thermoelectric power, airports, bridges, tunnels, among countless projects, which are the outpost of the extractivist machine that loot the territories, bringing with it nothing more than death. IIRSA is a weapon of mass destruction.
It is the greatest project of territorial reordering that has ever been carried out in the world, comparable only with the arrival and European invasion of America. In front of the voracious monster that grows in front of us, in front of the death sentence that imposes us.
Resistance is vital and urgent.

“And Severino Di Giovanni’s actions were never violent for the sake of it. They were never indiscriminate or striking at anything at all in order to create a tension that would favour power and it’s politics of consolidation. They were always guided by a precise revolutionary reasoning: to strike the centres of power with punitive actions that find their justification in the State’s violence, and which were aimed at pushing the mass towards a revolutionary objective. Di Giovanni always took account of the situation of the mass, even though he was often accused of not having done so” JW & AMB
Anarchism and Violence
Severino Di Giovanni in Argentina by Osvaldo Bayer
I don’t represent any organisation or group, I am writing this from my personal perspective, as nihilist-anarchist of an anti-civilisation insurrectional tendency. I have carried out direct action in defense of the Earth, so the state and society would probably view me as an “Eco-Extremist”, although I’m unconcerned with this term as it’s become a sect-like ideology of the Church. I haven’t written before about the Church of ITS Mexico or the idiot pseudo-nihilist(s) in Italy because over the last few years they clearly became reactionary and more akin to far-right ‘black’ groupscules.
It has been some years since the Church of ITS Mexico said something like that ‘the FAI doesn’t represent us’, that the ‘CCF doesn’t represent us’… Well I can’t recall anything like that being said by CCF or FAI or anyone else in the first place, so why is the ITS Church still issuing sermons about it now and why have they not embarked on a one-way trip far away from the black anarchy they proclaim is irrelevant and gone off into the nihilising abyss like they said they would, leaving all us anarchist nuns alone?
G20 in Hamburg: These were days of revolt
During the days of the summit of the G20, thousands of people flooded the streets of Hamburg with their anger about the cops` violence and the world that they protect. Already during the week before, there was no uncertainty around the cops’ will to confront every sign of protest or resistance with zero tolerance. During the demo on Thursday evening, they made their position clear once again, attacking the front of the demo from the first minute it started. The cops obviously and viciously embraced the possibility of potentially even lethal injuries, when they pushed and kettled the front block of the demo into a very narrow, canyon-like part of the Hafenstraße, bordered on the sides by brick walls. They caused panic, hitting, kicking, pepper-spraying, firing tear gas and shooting water canons from the front and the sides. Many people sought to flee over the walls on the sides, a lot of people got hurt – but you could also see impressive moments of solidarity, people helping each other up the wall, whilst others attacked the cops from above and brave and calm front rows defended the demo from the cops attacks, taking a serious beating.
The baton in the face, the knee in your neck, the pepper in the eye are there to remind you who is in charge in this world. During these days, the representatives and leaders of the 20 richest countries of this world met to discuss the maintenance of this order of misery. Tens of thousands of cops were supposed to protect this spectacle from those who seek to show their open rage, hatred and resistance to those arrogant authorities.
On the night of Friday a lot of people chose to get back a part of the dignity that is being stolen from us on a daily basis, attacking the cops in a lot of different places in the city. Barricades were built and with hammers, stones and fire people put numerous cracks in the facades of a society in which only those who function, consume and obey find their place. Continue Reading →
“The Black Block” call was made from Hamburg for the action organized under the slogan ‘Welcome to Hell’ against the G-20 summit to be held by 19 state leaders holding 85% of the world economy. Thousands of anarchists, anti-fascist individuals from all over the world came to Hamburg for action even though Schengen’s visas had been suspended.
Anarchist groups from Turkey were in action and they immediately reported what happened.
The activists from many different regions joined the preparations in the camps and at the Rote Flora occupation house, they attended some trainings for the action but the police harassment and attacks had started before the acts did. In the camps, police did search and took some into custody through helicopter and land raids. On the way, arbitrary searches were made by the police in various areas, extraordinary conditions and violations were experienced in the city.
Tensions were experienced when civilian police officers were detected among the activists.
Despite the efforts of the German state to block the people, St. Pauli Football Team announced that it opened the stadium to the activists as a shelter. The nearby bars provided free water and food. The press release titled “Yes, we are camping” was made. St. Pauli fans opened a banner in the tributary “Our Neighborhood, Our Rules”. Thus, camp resistance began before the G-20’s actions and solidarity areas expanded. Personal properties, theater, circus, church and various societies were opened for accommodation. Tents were placed for protest in some areas that nobody stayed in.
Bas-Saint-Laurent, Quebec: destruction of drilling rigs for gas and oil
[The oil company Squatex Energy and Resources, associated with Petrolympic, had already drilled in the fall of 2014 “to measure the potential of oil and gas exploitation” located 800 to 1800 meters down (estimated at a total equivalent of 61.1 million barrels). After its initial stock market listing in April 2017 and having obtained an operating license for 656,093 hectares in the region, Squatex had announced resumption of its exploratory work this summer, drilling on a dozen sites in La Redemption and Sainte-Jeanne-d’Arc in La Mitis. Apparently, this did not please everyone.]

These last two nights several offices and agencies of this mouldy society received a brief visit…
The locks of estate agencies (X5), an office of a security company and a sports club for the wealthy were sabotaged with glue. It took only a few toothpicks, superglue and enough rage and abnegation to carry out these small actions.
Solidarity with the two comrades, Kara and Krème, imprisoned for the fire of the car of the cops of May 18, 2016 on the quai de Valmy in Paris.
Much strength and courage to the compa Lisa, sentenced to 7 and a half years for a bank robbery in Aachen. who finds herself locked up inside four walls in Cologne.
