Let’s run down the hills
How to speak about sustainable investment to this wildboar ? To this orfan doe about
recycling toxic waste ? How to say to the disfigured montain that it was worth it,
that we really needed this 4 lanes highway interchange ? How to sincerely reassure
this thousands exsanguinated trees piled up like in mass grave ? Theses confused and
disoriented birds and bats who are driven crazy so that wifi passes everywhere in 4G
? Does this lonely starving wolf give a fuck if you recycle your rubbish ? What did
this baby fox coarpse think about progress, in your opinion ? The few places where
we felt good, you razed them to the ground to create fields, vineyards ans Ikea’s
furniture. The bush, you distroyed it into small pieces for your trucks to go
faster. The moutain you pierced it in all parts to avoid walking in between two ski
runs and then you empalated with windills what was left of the cadaver, to have a
clean conscience. The water of the streams is polluted because of thousands of your
slaves that you put in fed in the plateau.
And what about us in the middle of this ? This world sentences us to die by starving
or boredom. We should be complicit of our own alienation. We should be subjected.
After all, there’s champion’s league and election on tv. We should accept to be
either girl or boy, and accept all the bullshit and moral that comes with. We should
be docile and gratefull. We’ve got benefit and medecine. If we want to change
society, we have petitions, freedom of speak, citizen demostrations and public
opinion. What do we complain about ? We should be reasonnable, patient, and
rational, for our own good. And if problems overwhelm us, we still can get high on
drugs to forget that, according to where we were born, we become, with more or less
violence, slaves. That anyway nothing changes and there is no choice.

From the North prison of the city of Mexico – ReNo
Once again the prison institution sought to dissuade me and to weaken my rebel convictions by ordering my transfer to the Centre for the Execution of Penal Sanctions. This was done with the approval of the Criminal Tribunal, 43 which sent the decisive judgment that I could no longer remain in the Northern Penitentiary since my conviction had become final. Under the direction of Rafael Oñate Farfán, the previous administration had many reasons to see its interests threatened by repeated disturbances as well as protests inside the prison; they knew perfectly well that no matter where they sent me, they would encounter the same conflict and the same constant questioning of everyday norms, knowing that little matter the place, there would always be attempts at insurrection.
They were able to see this in area 3 of the entrance module and in area 7 and 5 of the “isolation and institutional security” of the C.O.C. (Observation and Selection Centre).
We received a short call and a poster against the repressive and normalizing trend going on in Bologna:
Anti-riot police in the university library in via Zamboni 36. An ultimatum to XM24, which they intend to evict after 30th June.
They want to turn Bologna into a desert. Let’s not just stand by and watch.
Bologna that resists is wonderful
The police, the PD and the Northern League want to turn it into a desert
Let’s not just stay there and watch

While awaiting more information, from police statements spectacularly reported in the local media we learn of the arrest of anarchist comrade Maddalena Calore.
As far as we can understand, during the notification and execution of an arrest warrant for a previous conviction, while they were searching the house where she was staying, the police hounds would have found material to use to arrest her.
“LADISA Ltd. gets rich on the skins of undocumented migrants and collaborates with the CIEs. Genoa, night of 16/02, 3 LADISA company vans are set on fire against the Ministry of Interior’s latest programme of raids and the agreements between Italy and Libya and Italy and Nigeria concerning the deportation and imprisonment of migrants in detention camps in their countries of origin. Solidarity with the anarchists imprisoned in AS2 units. Revenge for all the men and women killed by borders.”

March 10th, 2017 — We learn from the Red Aid that — finally — Marco Camenisch has completed the process of “gradual release”.
The comrade Marco Camenisch is free!
Heads-up for the long-awaited Issue 5 of your friendly, local squatters’ paper.
SLAP! is a squatter’s freesheet first printed in early 2016. After a quick half-year of squat-hopping, sitting around and organising elsewhere, some of us involved in the previous four issues teamed up with others and knocked-together a fifth. SLAP! is back to support the flow of counter-info between London squats and act as a semi-regular message-board for squat happenings, updates and unapologetic ideas. Continue Reading →
A few nights ago we sabotaged about 50 parking meters by gluing their locks, coin slots, and card readers. This was a simple act which took no specialized skill. Get some superglue, cover your face, keep your eyes peeled for cops or loyal citizens, and act.
These parking meters were targeted because they fund the Bloomington Police Department and because they force people to pay to be downtown. We hate the police and we hate gentrification and class society, so we chose to attack them.

Today the the ‘left-wing’ Syriza government revealed once more its total capitulation and authoritarianism by evicting two squats in Athens, Greece. More than 200 people were detained during the evictions, with about 100 of them being released again. Refugees with papers were released, while “non-citizens” without papers will be sent to hotspots/camps. The Greek state also raided a self-organized center in the city of Agrinio. The cops vandalized the venue and stole 600€. Several thousand people protested in Athens against the evictions where clashes broke out after cops attacked the demonstration with tear gas.

Fleeing the future
[Received via email]
A black mantle. A great unknown. Something that has been frightening me lately: the future. Up until now it had had quite a pragmatic role in my life. It forced me to arm myself with means such as planning, efficiency and calculation so as to be able to shape my revolutionary everyday life as well as possible. Only rarely did I stop to think about the future, or feel uneasy or frightened by it. Of course such feelings overwhelmed me at times, when I allowed the madness of this world to overcome me or when my life was touched by some crucial event. But I always told myself that it’s pointless hiding one’s head in the sand.
During today’s session two street cleaners testified that on the day of the robbery they found a bag in the vicinity of the bank. One of them didn’t even see what was inside and barely testified. The other, upon emptying it in his cleaning cart, saw that there was a gun inside and warned the police. He was not certain whether there had been a sports bag with a plastic bag inside or whether there had been two bags.
The two cops that responded to the street cleaner’s call and who closed off the area surrounding the bank following the robbery, also took the stand. They said that they did not touch the bag and that one of the street cleaners had done so (with work gloves).
Furthermore, the judge has read various forensic reports concerning the material that was inside the bank (tools, tie-wraps, a cutter that contained a finger print, etc.) and a report to determine whether the traces found on the safe and on the entrance door to the apartment (adjacent to the bank and the worker’s entrance) coincided with the tools found inside the bank. This last report is not conclusive.
The next session will take place on the 2nd of March at 09.00.
On the night of January 28, we burned two vehicles of the company Prosegur near their headquarters in the Bellvitge neighborhood of Hospitalet. We do not think it necessary to justify this attack on these wretched guard dogs.
To carry out this action we have resorted to an old, well known method used by anarchists. The device consists of a small bottle filled with gasoline, a wick with some matches around it.
We want with this little gesture to send all our love and strength to the anarchists accused of having expropriated a bank in Aachen and who have been on trial since January 23rd.
Long live anarchy !!
[Translated from Spanish from Indy Barcelona, 15 Feb 2017]
In 2015, a comrade from Amsterdam was arrested. She was accused of having participated in a robbery in 2013 against the Aachener bank in Aachen. After a few months spent in preventive and several weeks of trial, she was finally acquitted and released. Nevertheless, it can be assumed that the Aachen Prosecutor’s Office will appeal this verdict and go to the revision court.
In April and June 2016, two other comrades, this time from Barcelona, were arrested and incarcerated by the spanish state, accused by the same prosecution office of having participated in another bank robbery. The two were then extradited to germany in June 2016, where they have since been under the U-Haft regime (investigative preventive prison). The trial against them began in January 2017 in the Aachen Justice complex and it is scheduled to run until May 22, 2017.
It does not come as a surprise to us that those who oppose and fight against the misery of this world forged on domination are attacked, prosecuted and punished. We are not interested in discussing about guilt or innocence, it is the language that belongs to our enemies and we refuse it. Our enemies follow the logic of separation and categorization of individuals, in order to then have the possibility of locking up the undesirables. We share with the accused comrades an aversion to this system, and towards the prison system which perpetuates the distinction between good citizens and those who deserve to be punished.
It has been five months since I returned to inhabit the cells of the Maximum Security Section of the High Security Prison and I think it is necessary to refer to both the personal and the prison scenario. The reasons for not writing before are obviously personal; but more than anything it is due to the belief – despite being convinced that sharing experiences generates inexhaustible links – that the virtual platforms and their set of communications is far removed from the real and approaches an abstract idea of the day to day life of jail and that of the individual. Irreducible? Yes, whether or not there is a swing of emotions, neither conviction nor mind falters, but that disgusting idea of the steel martyr behind the bars must fall. By the suicide of the image and the fetish, by the real destructive complicity.
“Pessimism is the opium of intellectuals, optimism belongs to the stupid. A fanatical and dreamy realism, the awareness that we do not fit into this world, the values we will defend in each moment, plus the complicit warmth of those we love and cherish.”
Five months ago, a bit about detention:

We will not hesitate to speak about Lambros Foundas, despite the asphyxiating ringer that the governmental repression wants to create.
It is difficult to accept that we will never see comrade Lambros again.
The vibrations of his social and individual action and the continuous consistency and continuity in conscience, the life attitude, social solidarity, the collective struggles and the multiform action rendered him always dangerous for every authority and the state. A dangerous enemy of the state and every dominating mechanism, an individual with a passion for freedom, that penetrated the thought of everyone that was near him, a friend close to the heart of those who fought with him. He dissolved with the depth of his thought and his attitude hallucinations and self-delusions. To walk along together with comrade and friend Lambros was a process of anarchy and freedom, a process of deep human knowledge and freedom.
This is why they could never “strike him in the mind”. His sensitivity for each person that needed solidarity took the dimension of a daily behaviour, attitude of life, revolt, of a dynamic blow against the state, the relations of imposition and the relations of exploitation of people by people.
There are certain people so old that it seems they come from the future. Because, those of who stood side by side and together with Lambros had the conscience that in “our time” we had to give a battle with an enormous depth in the time of history, with continuous fights and conflicts for the liberation from the dominating bonds.
A history so long that it made us already touch upon a step further, constantly, with dignity and self-activity, breaking the ringer of fear that they manufacture and lurks, experiencing the need of anarchy.
In any case, Lambros Foundas lives in the flaming hearts of those who fight continuously for dignity and freedom.
The memory of the rebels that die is incarnated in our small and big revolts.
S. from act for freedom now!
