Comrade Marios Seisidis is tried for the robbery of the National Bank of
Greece on Solonos street in January 2006 as well as participation in six
more bank robberies. The development of the story since then is outlined
through lengthy imprisonments, persecutions, targeting, and outrageous
bounties on comrades heads. A merciless hunt by the state against those
comrades who were accused of participation in the “robbers in black”
case as well as against the anarchist/anti-authoritarian milieu.
M.Seisidis avoided arrest for 11 years, in a dangerous journey of
guarding his freedom.
In a final attempt to incriminate Marios, since not the slightest
indication of the comrade’s participation in the charges attributed to
him, came up in the preliminary hearing, and since the journalistic
fabrication of the group of “robbers in black”, the baton is passed on
to the (anti)terrorist force which cooperated tightly with the special
appeals interrogators, with sole evidence an alleged dna sample. We,
with solidarity as our weapon, we stand as a dyke to these machinations
by the state and we will not allow our comrade to the mercy of the
predator hands of repression.

New incendiary attack in Brussels and surroundings in the night of 11 February 2017.
– the burning of a vehicle of local and federal keufs in solidarity with Damien and with all the prisoners.
Against this (old) world of authority and resignation …
for spring, freedom, light, night and equality.

This February will mark 4 years since they were incarcerated. We must
have memory and we must honor our comrades.
Their are no choices, neither illusions, the choices are only two:
either spectators in the couches of a castrated life, or perpetrators of
incidents that form the development of history. The thought of freedom
is not enough, because on its own it can be a blossom, but freedom
itself is a seed. Thus, when you want to crush the state, everything in
your mind is a hammer. All you have to do is use it.
And this is exactly what our friends and comrades from Velvedo did, and
who now are hostage of the state prisons and who as of February have
been incarcerated for 4 years.
We are at war now and we must choose sides. No one can remain
un-involved. The illusions are gone, the facades have worn away. The
authoritarians admit that for emergency reasons, once more, that ideas
must be persecuted.
Nothing is over, everything continues, refusal, insurrection and
LONG LIVE ANARCHY SCUMBAGS!!

Saturday 11, following the beautiful riot of Bobigny, we wanted to keep going …
… and we burned a COFELY car in front of Fort de Noisy. COFELY-ENGIE is the owner of GEPSA, the leading private partner in the management of jails (for information)
A thought to the rebels in the 93, the mutineers in the prisons, as in Valencia, the beautiful burning of the cop car of last May 18. A complicit and solidarity greeting to the anarchists in prisons, in France as elsewhere.
Let’s spread the revolt!

These past months, in different cities, including during unpermitted demos or riots, many of us have been thrilled by the number of offensive actions in the street. From clashes with the guard dogs of the state and property to the broken windows of shops and even the pillaging of their contents; from attacks on journalist-cops to overcoming the pacifiers of the day: all of this has shaken the arrogance of the powerful. In all forms of struggle — which aren’t limited to “social movements” — self-organization and direct action are indispensable if we are to break with the pacification world of commodities and with state terrorism. Because to claim that it’s unimaginable for individuals to directly oppose the existing order is just a veiled way of saying that social revolt is simply impossible.
Repression is not just the moment when the flashball or baton comes to strike recalcitrant bodies, it’s each moment of daily life under the domination of the State and Capital, through their thousands of omnipresent psychological and physical manifestations that coerce the poor into accepting a shitty life. It’s the prisons that lock up ever more people for ever longer sentences, in order to punish, isolate, break, and store them, out of sight of the peaceful consciences of good citizens. It’s also the outside prison, built from measures like electronic bracelets, house arrest, exclusion areas, bail conditions, and so on.
Sixty cameras will detect dubious behaviour in June 2017
Nearly 60 cameras of the Toulouse hyper-centre are to be equipped with a reconnaissance system that will alert operators in the case of suspicious behaviour.
After the 102 cameras used to remotely charge wrongly parked motorists, here are intelligent cameras, able to detect abnormal behaviour on the pavement.
Since January 16, 102 video-protection cameras in Toulouse city centre allow – among other things – to “hunt” motorists who park wrongly. In one click, the ticket is sent to the Rennes national processing centre. And the fine reaches the offender a few days later: from € 17 to € 135 depending on the gravity of the offence. Around thirty tickets per day, on average, have been drawn up over last month.
But by June 2017, the Toulouse City Council will go even further. It will equip nearly sixty cameras already operating in the hyper-centre, with artificial intelligence software. Thanks to this software, acquired from the IBM company for 150 000 €, the cameras will be able to detect unusual behaviour, and to warn the video operators.

The 6th hearing of the appeals trial of the anarchist-communist Tasos Theofilou at the Appeals Court of Athens, concluded today with the testimonies of the final prosecution witnesses. A high-ranking member of the counter-terrorism unit was the only witness who did not participate in the trial as he was allegedly abroad. It does not come as a surprise that, once again, none of the witnesses recognized Tasos Theofilou as one of the perpetrators of the robbery and the violent act that followed.
The first testimony was given by a woman who was standing outside the branch of Alpha Bank and witnessed the embroilment and the escape of the perpetrators.
Presiding Judge: What do you know about the case?
Witness: I was there by accident, around 8 o’ clock in the morning.
Presiding Judge: What did you see through the blinds?
Witness: I saw that it was busy and it was out of the ordinary so I decided not to go in. A van was parked on the right side of the bank. Then 3-4 people whose appearance was very strange came out. They were wearing clothes that were strange for that time of the day. Their faces were not revealed. There were many gunshots.
Why is speciesism an issue for anarchists, and how does it intersect
with other kinds of authority?
Talk & discussion on speciesism from an anarchist perspective. For
corpse-crunchers and vegans alike, but please come with an open mind.

18.02.17: On February 21/22 the European Police Congress will take place for the 20th time in Berlin. On this occasion at the Berlin Congress Center (BCC), war mongers, human hunters and security fanatics meet to propagate their despicable machinations.
In addition to Thomas Thomas de Maizière, the Federal Minister of the Interior and Hans-Georg Maaßen, the President of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, agents and guards of all types will be represented by Europol, Frontex, BKA, LKAs and many other authorities. Also present will be lobbyists, entrepreneurs and war ministries such as Heckler & Koch, Taser, Rheinmetal and developers of monitoring software and communications technology such as SAP, IBM and Vodafone will also be present.
It is important to announce one week before the opening of HMP Berwyn that two of the houseblocks in the prison are structurally unsound due to sabotage in 2015.
After our action in May 2015 where machinery was sabotaged, we knew that to regularly attempt to attack the prison would be impossible due to the prison walls being built around the site. After intensive research, it soon became apparent that we could have a dramatic effect with little effort.
In July 2015, a strong acidic powder was poured into the excavations of the groundfloor slabs of two of the prisons’s houseblocks. This has made two of these buildings structurally unsound – their foundations will eventually crumble and the buildings could collapse over time.
Given that the strength of these slabs has been greatly reduced, intrusive investigations and a full re-build of these houseblocks would be necessary before attempting to cage people in these buildings.
This action is dedicated to every human being that has died in the prison system at the hands of the State.
Today, 31st January, in the third oral tribunal of the penal section, the disgusting authority issued verdicts against the 5 comrades accused of an incendiary attack on the inquisitors’ dungeon carried out in November 2014.
With the bourgeois morals and laws on their side, the judges decided on the comrades’ lives as follow:
*Natalia Alvarado: acquitted of all charges
*Maria Paz Vera: acquitted of all charges
*Manuel Espinoza: guilty of arson in residential area, acquitted of the charge of transporting an incendiary device and of attempted murder
According to corporate media in Spain and Chile, the Audiencia Nacional (National Court) of Spain decided on January 30 to commute the rest of Mónica and Francisco‘s sentence to expulsion. The lawyers of the comrades are thought to have requested for article 89 of the Spanish Penal Code to be invoked which allows for foreign citizens serving more than one year’s imprisonment to have their sentence replaced with expulsion from the Spanish state. The comrades had their original sentence of 12 years reduced on appeal to 4 years and 6 months last December which means they have now served more than a third of their sentence.
It is expected that following police bureaucratic processes that the comrades will be flown by Spanish police to Chile where they will be handed over to Chilean police and then released back onto the street.
More news as it becomes available.
