Chile : A Telephone Company van torched

Since the outset of civilization, technology has been yet another instrument of domination among those of power. In recent decades telecommunications have acquired an important role in the imposition of progress in various areas of the planet.
Telefónica stands among the biggest telecommunication multinationals, a Spanish company that concentrates its activities in Europe and Latin America.
The installation of infrastructures necessary to brutal and horrible activities, such as pylons, repeaters, optic fibres and many others, is being supported and nourished through the devastation of territories and the living beings who inhabit them. Moreover Telefónica have research centres for the development of control technologies, thus supplying the police with instruments to persecute those who rebel against power and domination.

Bari and Potenza, Italy : Revolts beak out in local migrant detention centres

A revolt broke out in the CPR [Reception and Repatriation Centre] of Bari Palese tonight, a few days after an attempt at a mass escape.
According to what the forces of order declared to the press, some prisoners set fire to cells, vandalized offices where documents were kept and flooded corridors.
Of course the media talk of ‘guests’ who destroyed ‘residential modules’, as though this were not a concentration camp.
Allegedly the revolt broke out to stop a mass deportation to Nigeria, which was expected during the night. The information circulating at the moment talks of prisoners covered in soap to avoid being held, and also of soapy water preventing the forces of order from charging on the slippery floors.
Several squads of Forces of Order arrived and attacked the rioters, who tried to resist by throwing objects.

Germany : Action against German and Turkish fascists

In the early hours of 24/10 we set fire to a van of DITIB in Wienerstrasse. We chose the twentieth anniversary of Sehid Ronahi-Andrea Wolf’s death as the day of our action. Andrea was murdered twenty years ago by fascist squads in the Turkish State because she was an internationalist. DITIB, like any other institution, represents the interests of the Turkish fascist State in Germany and in Europe. We dedicate this action to all those who lost their lives in the struggle against fascism.
[25th October 2018]
In the night we smashed the windows of the restaurant Heimspiel in the FC 07 sporting ground in Leipzig and we also painted it in black.

Buenos Aires, Argentina: Responsibility Claim for the Explosive Attack Against a Santander Rio Bank Branch

In the early morning hours of December 2nd, 2018, within the context of the G20 meeting in Buenos Aires, we detonated an explosive device that caused the destruction of a Santander Rio Bank branch located in Flores, Buenos Aires.
We claim this action against a Summit that we consider to be the ultimate expression of this extractivist system that is based on the constant plundering of nature and the murder, torture and domination of all expressions of life. This is what the capitalist system of today, under the guise of social democracy, is based upon.
We carried out this attack against civilization and its progress, against public order and the civil peace, against political parties and their false solutions, for the victims of the imperialist invasion of Abya Yala, for all those who were assassinated by the State and for all the human and non-human animals in their prisons.

France : The last prisoner of the Quai Valmy case will soon be released on bail

The request for release on bail concerning the last person in prison for the Quai de Valmy case was definitively rejected by the Chamber of sentence enforcement, appeal jurisdiction of sentence enforcement Judge (JAP).
He will remain locked up in the prison of Meaux till he gets out with the benefit of sentence reduction; the appointed date is end of January [1].
However, they will be among the people affected by the bill drawn up by Taubira [socialist minister of law] in 2014 (art. 71-2 of the penal code), which allows the application of a certain number of restrictions to the period of sentence reduction; otherwise there’s the risk of going straight back to prison. In short, a sort of judicial control in retrospect, after a custodial sentence has already been served, which constitutes an additional sentence under the pretext of rehabilitation.
Judge and Prosecutor, undoubtedly because they found he would get out (a little) too soon for their taste didn’t spare anything to give him almost all the possible restrictions in this case:

Greece : In the night of New Year’s Eve outside the Petrou Ralli Detention Centre in Athens

In the night of New Year’s Eve and despite the heavy rainstorm approximately 200 comrades were gathered outside the Petrou Ralli Detention Centre to change the year with the migrant people that are kept there. The detainees showed a strong front! They shouted chants, they threw part of the false ceiling of their cells outside the windows, they burnt objects and threw the bowls with their extremely ‘savory’ (as always) dinner in the courtyard. The presence of police as well as riot police was quite notable. Unfortunately, as it has been established as a common practice during our interventions, after a while the guards reacted and isolated the migrants in the back side of the prison, sealing the windows.

Comments Off on Sardinia, Italy : Request for house arrest for Paolo rejected and updates on the prison of Uta

Sardinia, Italy : Request for house arrest for Paolo rejected and updates on the prison of Uta

A request for a change of custodial measure for Paolo from prison to house arrest, has been rejected.
Paolo was arrested over a year ago, on 31st October 2017, following an armed robbery at a Cagliari post office, for which he was sentenced to 6 years in the first grade trial.
The reasons for the rejection of the request are purely a question of principle, i.e. it was pointed out how ‘the events under consideration are particularly serious and indicate the coldness and unscrupulousness of the perpetrator of the robbery in relation to the circumstances and modalities of the occurrence’; moreover ‘as for the time elapsed… it is still absolutely adequate to the gravity of the crimes committed and the measure of the severity of the sentence…’, therefore ‘there is no reason to revoke the current custodial measure, whereas there are excellent reasons for it to remain valid’.

Hamilton, Canada :Cedar Updates! New Mailing Address

From Hamilton Anarchist Support

Cedar has been transferred from Barton Jail in Hamilton to Vanier Centre for Women in Milton where they will serve the duration of their sentence. While there, they would love to receive mail from people (friends and strangers alike!). Mail can be sent to the following address:

Peter “Cedar” Hopperton
Vanier Centre for Women
655 Martin Street
Milton, Ontario
L9T 5E6

They’d be happy to receive letters and would be interested in corresponding with people, and would also appreciate photocopies of things to read (news, articles, zines, books etc.) – just make sure there are no staples. You can also send them books if they are shipped directly from the publisher.

They’re currently most interested in books on Eastern Europe and the Middle East regional histories, and social movements history/histories of uprisings, revolutions etc., but would be interested in pretty much any general history, and anything anarchy related – theory, analysis, reportbacks, callouts, interviews etc. They are also interested in Italian language learning and any books that would help with that. Texts can be in English or French, or Arabic if an English translation accompanies it.

Acquittal in Fight Repression case

On November 19th 2016, a group of 250 demonstrators joined at the Kerkplein to demonstrate against the growing repression against anarchists and antifascists in The Hague and further. Repression being the always prohibiting of demonstrations and the identifying of anarchists and antifascist to then take repressive measures against them. This demonstration has also been repressed with violence from the police and with the arrest of 166 people.

Now, almost two years later the public prosecutor decided to prosecute the 166 demonstrators that were arrested at the Kerkplein. De first 50 people had to show up in court last month. After two full days in court, the judge ruled on December 3rd and the first 50 people were acquitted. Yesterday (13/12/2018) the public prosecutor decided not to appeal and to dismiss the remaining cases.

Foix, France : Sometimes, in the night

ACAB
After Grenoble, Crest, Limoges, Paris, Besançon… Foix.
In the night of 6th December, three ENEDIS sites were set on fire [ENEDIS is a branch of Electricité de France, responsible for the national electricity network].
In solitude, we listen to the night, clothed like it, black overalls behind shining eyes.
Its darkness covers us up to the scene of the crime.
Lighter in pocket.
Bottles of petrol on back.
Bodies ready for the game of chaos.
The game lasts a few hundred seconds during which we enjoy the attack on this world.
The deed done, we hasten back into the arms of the night.
We indulge in a look back.
And laugh in silence.
What a beautiful fire!

Belgium – Trial against anarchists set to begin 29th April 2019

Between 2008 and 2014, the Belgian State carried out a vast investigation of the struggle, always outside beaten paths, in protest at detention centres, borders, prisons and the world of authority and exploitation. The targets of the investigation: Acrata anarchist library, anarchist and antiauthoritarian publications, dozens of leaflets and posters, over one hundred actions, attacks and sabotage… in other words, the struggle against power in its various expressions.
Raids, bugs, cameras outside and inside homes, shadowing, phone tapping, infiltrated police… were the investigative instruments set up. However, all this has never allowed them to prove the existence of any alleged ‘anarchist terrorist group’, which only exists in cops’ authoritarian plots. As the prosecutors are not prepared to give up they have downgraded their ambitions, still counting on making someone pay all the same. So it’s on the more malleable charges of ‘criminal association’ that 12 comrades will be on trial on 29th April and in the following days.

Comments Off on Santiago, Chile: Truck Torched for Black December by Incendiaries Complicit in Sabotage FAI-FRI

Santiago, Chile: Truck Torched for Black December by Incendiaries Complicit in Sabotage FAI-FRI

Black December means action and memory, and, like any initiative of direct attack, it comes to life and continues when there is a will to go from words to deed – to break with the normality of the capitalist social routine and the comfort of civic life.
Always prepared for action, we liberate ourselves from the consumerist fever and the behavioral patterns imposed by the social order with its end of year traditions. And so, with planning, cunning and certain precautions, the anarchist attack never stops.
That’s why at dawn on December 28th we set fire to a truck in the city of Santiago, in a suburb of the so-called ‘middle class’. The action was reported by the media and now we can confirm: it wasn’t a short circuit, it was an intentional fire wrought by anarchic hands during the middle of the night in the streets of their disgusting city.
Setting fire to a truck is attacking the mega-machines and structures that contribute to the devastation of the Earth, it is setting fire to the ideas of progress and civilization, it is our contribution to the ongoing agitation against the IIRSA-COSIPLAN project and the construction of thousands of kilometers of roads that destroy eco-systems to facilitate the transit of trucks full of merchandise and accelerate the advance of the city that contaminates our life.
By burning a truck we also sent smoke signals of sabotage in solidarity with the Mapuche rebellion and their struggle for autonomy and territory. Because the blood of Camilo Catrillanca ignites the insurrection against our common enemy which is the State and capital.
We claim this action as part of the Informal Anarchist Federation, a tool for international communication between anti-authoritarians via direct attack, greeting with fire each cell and individual that seeks destructive action against civilization and technology, its structures and the people directly responsible for oppression.
With our action we embrace the comrades Juan Aliste, Marcelo Villaroel, Joaquin García and Sol Vergara; Facundo Jones Huala, the machi Celestino Cordova and all the peñis and lamgen who resist in the prisons and communities, to the comrades in Argentina who remain dignified inside and outside the prison following the recent repressive operation in November; Alfredo Cospito, Nicola Gai and all the comrades in prison and facing trials in Italy, to comrade Lisa in Spain; to Dinos Yagtzoglou, the comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, Angeliki Spyropoulous, and all the imprisoned comrades in Greece and to all those in the USA, France, Brazil, Indonesia, Germany, Spain, Russia and the entire world who continue to fight against all forms of domination.

Milan, Italy : Meeting in solidarity with those on trial for ”operation Scripta Manent”

The first part of the trial for operation ”Scripta Manent’‘, for which seven comrades have been locked up in pre-trial detention for over two years, is due to end in the early months of 2019, with the first-grade sentence.
As he’s trying to sentence our comrades for subversive association with terrorist intent as well as for specific crimes, hangman Sparagna wants to put the last twenty years of the history of anarchy and anarchist solidarity on trial.
The hearings for the prosecutor’s final speech have been fixed for 22nd and 23rd January 2019, although these dates could be changed on 15th January.
We have decided to meet on 13th January at 2pm in Milan, at  L’Accerchiata, in order to discuss among comrades the modalities of our presence in court during the prosecutor’s final speech, so as to express our solidarity with those on trial and our anger and disgust towards all hangmen, judges and investigators.

Italy : ”Operation Panico” trial: report on the hearing of December 20

A hearing of the” operation Panico” trial took place today. The only accused present in court was Paska, and a few people of the public. Yesterday Paska was notified he had been assigned article 14bis for three months and went to court to discuss this with his lawyer. He asked a lawyer to tell us not to worry if we hadn’t come, it was impossible for him to let us know he’d in the court at such short notice.
With his lawyer, he decided not to ask for the annulment of article14bis; his detention now consists of remaining in the unit but in a single cell, without a gas stove or TV. A claim had been submitted for house arrest at his mother’s home in Martinsicuro, given the time he has already spent in prison and the fact that he had already been released and then re-arrested, so it’s not clear why a custodial measure is still being maintained. The judges will defer their decision until after they know the prosecutor’s opinion and will probably give an answer around December 27/28.
As concerns the issue of the admissibility of bugging interceptions, the judges will pronounce themselves later on, so for now nothing has been decided.

Germany : Hambi Chaos Christmas – Pump Station Torched!

It’s Christmas again and the little elves went out on the dark of the night to leave their presents to RWE and the police. It is warm tonight and we know who to blame. As the fire spreads and light us tonight we fight against climate change, the state that makes it possible, the system that needs it.
An incendiary device has been placed on a pumping station close to the Hambach Tagebau, willing to give to the forest back a bit of the water that coal mining it’s stealing. Because not just chainsaws are killing these trees.
Between the leaves of the forest the wind brings noises of glass breaking and stones crashing. There’ll be no night that we’ll let you sleep.
We still hating cops and secus, we’ll never forgive.
The Hambi Chaos Crew wishes you a merry crisis.
