Madrid, Spain – Attack against a Bankia branch in solidarity with the compañera sentenced for bank robbery in Germany

bankia
On the night of June 7th, an explosive-incendiary device was placed in a branch of Bankia located in the Mirasierra colony of Madrid, disturbing the tranquillity of the upper-middle class people that reside there. This urban area is populated with chalets and mansions that are covered with CCTV and private security patrols, far from the misery that cements the standard of living of its inhabitants.
This action was carried out after we heard about the sentencing of our compañera for expropriations in Germany, we send her all the warmth of our fire.
We also frame our action in the context of the call-out against the G20 financial summit in Hamburg.
Tonight our anger and disgust also erupted at the impotence of daily life, with an attempt to escape the passivity and give back some of the violence that we live under. We are fed up with the comfort of programmed life and political activity, which is also programmed; We want to embrace with this act all those who have fallen in action and fight to the death against all that keeps us in passivity.
Let the solidarity between anarchists be more than just written words! For Anarchy!

Athens: Banner for “Scripta Manent” case.

DSC_0036-768x512
As a minimal sign of complicity and solidarity, we displayed a banner at the Polytechnic on Patision the night of June 19th.
Comrades in Italy, and specifically the 7 comrades of Croce Nera Anarchica, Radioazione and Anarhija.info, with the new operation which started at 2/6/17, are accused of articles 270bis (subversive association with purposes of terrorism) in conjunction with the anarchist comrades under investigation in the first part of the OP. Scripta Manent for the same things, and 414 of penal code (criminal solicitation, always with purposes of terrorism). This is the continuation of the first operation “Scripta Manent” where bastard Roberto Maria Sparagna organized, in order to suppress the comrades who spread the words and keep the flame of rebellion alive.
Be strong!
We stand on their side and give them the boost, with all means , to continue.
For a dangerous June!
Traces of Fire
**The banner**
With FAI-IRF we are together
direct execution to every reformer
Power  to the persecuted
of operation Scripta Manent

New issue of Hourriya : The Unexpected – From center to periphery

hourriya3ENGn°3 of Hourriya

THE UNEXPECTED
From center to periphery

Looking elsewhere and otherwise. To think about how to throw the game of
the opponent into disorder, instead of playing a hand. Of how to
confound him, rather than to counter strike. Of how to surprise him,
possibly, being where he doesn’t expect us, doing what he does not
expect us to do. Trying to understand not what has always been done, but
rather how to do what has never been done. To await situations at the
cliff to make them precipitate, rather than chasing after them to
possibly influence them with the weight of our (inhibited) presence. Or
yet to intervene by treading through the periphery of a given situation
without paralyzing ourselves in the central choke. Or even still, to
anticipate these situations in order to divert them elsewhere,
shattering the plans of the enemy.

Livorno, Italy – On the demo outside “Le Sughere” prison on 20th May 2017

carcere_web-1024x724Two weeks after the demo outside “Le Sughere” prison in Livorno, from prisoners’ letters we learn that they heard the warm solidarity coming from speeches, slogans and fireworks, and decided to take part in the protest with two hours of bar-beating and some bedsheets in flames.
An intense day that of 20th May in Livorno. There were many of us outside there: comrades from several cities, Stefano Crescenzi’s family* and mothers of other kids murdered by prison. At the top of our lungs, about 150 of us broke the silence that walls and enclosures want to impose inside and outside.

Italy – Anarchist comrade Juan’s communique, from freedom…

Translated by act for freedom now!
———————–
Hola comrades!
In the end an arrest warrant for one year’s imprisonment  got me, following a sentence in 2012 (more or less) for giving false ID in Val Clarea, during one of the many controls by the Sardinian hunters and digos. I’ve got several other trials that are about to come (interrupting a procedure for a TSO [compulsory psychiatric treatment] in Bologna back in 2007, the mega NO TAV trial following the events of 3rd July 2011…), which will add more years to my CV.
At first I didn’t want to write anything public, I wanted to leave everything in ‘silence’, the silence where one doesn’t know what to say or do…
But thinking it over, it’s better not to!
I decided that I want to stay ‘free’ as long as I’m able to run, good!
Then ‘whatever happens take it in your stride’, be it positive or negative, I’ll try to live it as intensely as possible.

France – New Letter From Anarchist Prisoner Damien Camelio

Received by mail / Thursday, June 8th, 2017
It’s May 18th, the date of my parole, but I’m still in the slammer and I’m going to be staying here.
Sentence judge Catherine Ardaillon, left-wing trade unionist, activist at the Evry tribunal and at Fléury-Mérogis prison, has decreed that all the same, for cases like mine, its lucky that there are prisons and therefore adjusting my sentence is out of the question.
Unlike my last sentence, I am not under the yoke of the anti-terrorist law, but in practice it is still applied to me.
This is why the application for permission to go to a job interview ( which can not be refused at the end of a sentence), which I handed over to my SPIP, Jean-Baptiste, miraculously transformed into a simple request for ‘permission to maintain family ties’, so that it could be rejected by JAP Catherine Ardaillon.
For several weeks now, I have been subjected to numerous searches, searches of my cell, searches of my body, etc. They found nothing until an informant (who must have been very close to me, to give such precise information) told them where I was hiding my SIM cards. So a few days ago they found 3 SIM cards hidden inside a packet of new rolling papers. They were hidden intersperesed between the papers at the bottom of the packaging. During the search, the guard reacted in a way that netrayed that they had an informant: just before the search, when I emptied my pockets before undressing, he immediately took my 2 packets of rolling papers aside, but he seemed disinterested by the rest. I knew I was done, and indeed, at the end of the search, he said to me: “And here, there is nothing?” Then he pulled out all the sheets one by one until the SIM cards appeared.
In the days that followed, some of the prisoners who I am close to have undergone similar searches.

Pittsburgh, PA: June 11th Solidarity March – USA

z4-6Pittsburgh anarchists held a march in solidarity with anarchist prisoners on June 11th, 2017. Full marching band in tow, the group disrupted traffic patterns and whatever the fuck else gross yuppie shit goes down on Butler Street, Pittsburgh’s “hipster” strip. Banners in solidarity with Eric King, Marius Mason, and Fernando Bárcenas were on display, along with other anti-prison banners.
After the march, a picnic and info fair was held near by, where t-shirts and buttons were traded in exchange for commissary funds for Joseph Buddenberg, Nicole Kissane, Eric King, and Marius Mason.

Bologna, Italy – Bologna capital of the environment: the monsters are coming to the city, the city looks even more monstrous

G7_dichiarazione di interesse
G7 and Bologna capital of the environment: when the monsters come to the city, the city looks even more monstrous
The planet is dying, species are being decimated, biodiversity is being reduced, ecosystems are collapsing, entire territories are being exploited to the limit and beyond devastation, air, water, soil are no longer sources of life but of danger and death. The State responds to all this with summits, useless gatherings and protocol that give Capital’s voracity a green face. On 10th, 11th, 12th July the 7 most powerful environment ministers of the planet are meeting up in Bologna, united in the intent to reconcile their reciprocal interests and make a well-known paradox possible: the unlimited exploitation of limited resources. The new genial idea is the concept of ‘circular economy’, a new name for a forty-year-old idea: to reduce waste, increase profit and save from collapse a system that risks becoming the cause of its own end thanks to its insatiable voracity. A very challenging task, certainly, but possible solutions might well come out. Of course, the price is the radical transformation of our lives and the planet, the latter becoming an even worse hell and wild nature being substituted with an artificial productive surrogate. A hell of technological control to which a city like Bologna with its excellence in high technology and industrial research, gives a very important contribution: UNIBO, CNR, ENEA, IOR ( to mention only a few) and known financiers are uniting to make an unsustainable and suffocating system sustainable.

USA – Philly Machines Malfunction for Dangerous June

During the first half of dangerous June some machines decided to experiment with freedom. They expressed their solidarity with J20 arrestees and anarchists facing repression worldwide before taking their own liberating actions:
* Four security cameras flew away from their posts to see the rest of the world.
*A digital advertising billboard by a highway got a makeover.
*Four fare checking machines tried new foods and got constipated.
*A door to a security force’s building chose to sleep in and delay work.

SELF PRESENTATION OF INTERNATIONAL SQUAT HOUSE “ROSA DE FOC” – exarxeia – Athens

We are an autonomus, self-managed collective based on libertarian and anti-authoritarian principles. We are living on Ashmakh Fwthla 18 in Exarcheia.
We come from several countries, including Greece.rf_GQw8iFD
The governing organ of our community is the General Assembly (GA).
All important decisions regarding the house or its inhabitants must be approved by GA. Any decision taken otherwise will not be considered legitimate. We will not tolerate any threat of our autonomy, and will protect it. At the same time we perceive the solidarity among squats as self explanatory and continuous situation.
We will be vigilant and active in the struggle against drugs and drug dealing around the area of Exarchia as well as against the possibility of this happening inside the movement.
In addition, we are open to suggestions and political projects that promote the non-profit and anti constitutional character, the strengthening of relationships among comrades and the general struggle for revolution and Anarchy. We want and we have the ability to house self-educational activities, as well as activities that promote political discussion and communication.
We send our greetings to the revolutionary comrades that fight for freedom around the world, and all the political prisoners that have been kidnapped by the state. Our space constitutes from the beginning a crossroad for comrades from all around the globe and we desire to remain as such.
Whoever wants to take part in our community life and build a connection with us or has some projects or ideas, are welcome every Friday at 1p.m. At this time we organize collective kitchen.

Paris: A second trial of the struggle against the deportation machine

Translated from Indymedia Nantes
via:https://borderedbysilence.

————————————

On May 30 2017, judge Gendre released a committal order of her own, sending seven additional companions and comrades to court in connection to the struggle against the deportation machine in Paris.
In a first trial concerning the struggle against the deportation machine, on June 23, 2017 in Paris, four people who were subjects of one of the preliminary inquiries into this matter. After various reclassifications and withdrawals of the charges, three of them are accused of “tracing inscriptions on facades and street material” (meaning tags) in January 2011 and two of having “willfully damaged a banking ATM belonging to the Postal Bank” (by pasting a poster) in February 2010 during a group stroll.
In parallel to this, on May 30 2017, judge Gendre released a committal order of her own, sending seven additional companions and comrades [1] to court in connection to the struggle against the deportation machine in Paris. Although the date of the trial has not yet been decided (though it may be set in the next few weeks), we can already say a few things about it.

Germany , Weilheim – Arson Attack Against a Police Station

arson
During the night of 05.06.17 to 06.06.17 we attacked the cops with fire and make the following statement:
This is an anti-terrorist attack, an attack against the terror of the bourgeois state, its institutions and the general logic of exploitation that is managed by it. In concrete terms, an attack against the terror of the cops and their institutions of class injustice. We used six litres of gasoline, but unfortunately it was not enough to burn down their headquarters.
The terror of the bourgeois (vulgus: “democratic-freedom”) state has many facets; Some people get it in the form of weapons exports to fascists like Erdogan or Frontex ships in the Mediterranean, others feel it a little more subtly in the form of police cops or their case worker at the job center where the state is the guarantor of a hostile human enemy.

Modena, Italy – Premises of the neo-nazi group “Terra dei Padri” [Land of the Fathers] set on fire

001-4
via:.informa-azione.info
Translated by act for freedom now
———————————-
From the local media of 25th May we learn of the burning of the premises of the neo-nazi group “Terra dei Padri”.
The premises had already been the target of trashing and graffiti in recent months; according to the reconstructions in this case, at around 2am inflammable liquid was set alight and thrown into the building through a window that had been broken previously.
The building was declared unsafe and there were no casualties.
It was also reported that ANPI [Italian Partisans National Association] have demanded a rapid inquiry and that the perpetrators be punished in an exemplary way. They also asked that the transitory XII rule of the Constitution be complied with and that the related ‘Scelba’ and ‘Mancino’ laws be applied.

Barcelona, Spain – Call for solidarity in anticipation of the Aachen sentence, made before the sentence was pronounced

Here is the poster of the solidarity demo in Barcelona:
Without freedom for our comrades there’ll be no peace for our enemies ever
Anarchist solidarity with the anarchist prisoners detained in Germany for the Aachen case
Demo
Wednesday 7th June

Plaza Lessens in front of the library
Barcelona
aachenbarca
We receive a call for solidarity with the comrades on trial in Aachen in anticipation of the sentence that is to be pronounced on 7th June 2017:
Be it because of the refusal of all forms of oppression that want to crush us or because of the firm conviction in the wonderful worlds we carry in our hearts and which continually clash with the asphyxiating reality in which we live, we decide to struggle against the State and all forms of power.
We know, as the enemy does, that our struggle, albeit at times limited, continues without a break.
That’s why they lock us up, try to hamper our will and natural drive towards rebellion.
That’s why, sentence after sentence, repressive operation after repressive operation, we still keep our heads held high and muster all possible strength every time, filling the streets with our hatred thanks to the eternal moments of freedom we experience together.
In the firm conviction of our ideas, practices, experiences and in our solidarity, we will keep on conspiring, seeking and finding ways to confront the State and its many accomplices.
WHATEVER THE SENTENCE WE’LL BE IN THE STREETS

France,Toulouse: Solidarity with the accused of 18 May, Aachen and the others

Fire to an Eiffage car in solidarity with the imprisoned anarchists
Today, I was angry.
Enraged by the 7-year jail sentence that just fell on the anarchist comrade accused of a bank expropriation in Aachen.
Enraged to learn that the judges have decided to keep Kara and Krème in custody.
A bottle of hydroalcoholic gel emptied on the front wheel and a fire-lighter sufficed to set a car of Eiffage, who build their cages, up in flames, but will not have become right through my anger.
Anarchist solidarity, for a dangerous month of June

Paris: solidarity attack against the expulsion machine

[Paris] Locked up?
In Montmartre, Rue Tholozé, stands the L’Artesienne printing house.
– If we look at this business a little closer, we learn that their clients include the Penitentiary Administration
– It’s unacceptable, so its window and door had to smash to pieces during the night of 29 to 30 May 2017
Next June, the judicial system is set to judge the solidarity offensive with the generalized revolt of undocumented workers of the CRA of Vincennes reduced to ashes in 2008, and that too is unacceptable
– You have to make it known.
Let’s sabotage the expulsion machine
Freedom for all, with or without papers
