Comments Off on Chile: Spread the fire rather than cover it up
2019/10/21 by Sans_Attendre
Translated by Act for freedom now!
After the declaration of the state of emergency, entrusting the management of the streets to the military to restore order (alongside the other armed arms of the State), the President of the Republic Sebastian Piñera announced Saturday, October 19 abandoning the increase of the metro prices in Santiago, while his military decreed the establishment of a curfew.
Indeed, after the huge day of Friday in the capital where many metro stations had been ransacked and burned (in addition to clashes during the day), the revolt spread throughout the country. And this time, the question is no longer this or that, but a critique in act of the conditions of the poor: mass looting of supermarkets and shopping malls, fires of institutions (banks, town halls, tolls, newspaper headquarters) … but also the two together, since many looted businesses are also destroyed by the flames at the same movement, which is very particular.
Faced with this, the State first established curfews on Saturday evening in the Greater Santiago region from 10pm to 7am, before extending it to the region of Valparaiso and Concepción. Openly violated by crowds of enraged rioters who have multiplied elsewhere, it has been extended from north to south in the cities of Valdivia, Antofagasta, Talca, Chillán, Chillán Viejo, Temuco, Padre Las Casas and Punta Arenas. Its hours have also been extended from 22h to 20h and even 19h in Santiago (until 7h or 6h), time from which only the rich (equipped with passes) can circulate and the military can shoot anyone and stop them. While this may certainly deter some of the more citizen protesters (“less abuse” is one of their demands), it does not prevent many from not returning home and the riots being prolonged for three days from the day to the night. There are now 10,500 soldiers (soldiers and carabiniers) patrolling the whole country trying to restore order.
On Sunday in the early afternoon a few figures of the arrests of the day before or the night came out: 614 protesters from the region of Santiago deputed in court and 848 in the rest of the country, officially 1462 detainees that will attend to 193 prosecutors appointed for this purpose. Regarding the destruction of the metro in the capital, the new balance sheet is 80 affected stations out of 136, of which 11 totally burned and 11 partially burned + 41 heavily damaged (ransacked). To this we must add the news of Saturday, since enraged entered into to burn 8 new stations, including metro trains at the dock in closed stations: 6 different trains were destroyed, plus 3 metros (several trains) fully burned, and many electrical safety systems are out of use. All this for at least 300 million dollars’ damage. Note that also in Valparaiso stations were attacked (including a fire). All this without counting the Transantiago buses gone up in smoke. As for the banks, President Asociación de Bancos said that in two days and nights, 130 branches had been damaged (30 of which were destroyed) and 250 ATMs were completely destroyed (10% of the total stock). In terms of looting, the American chain of Walmart hypermarkets (Líder and A Cuenta brands) counted at least125 of its hypermarkets looted all over the country and 9 burned on Sunday. Another example concerns the Santa Isabel supermarkets, which were also heavily attacked: around 4:30 pm Sunday in Santiago at the crossroads of Trinidad and Vicuña Mackenna streets, several hundred people organized themselves to loot it quickly by bringing dozens of cars to fill up before sharing out. The more these riots are prolonged, the more varied the objectives are, like this looting of the Coca Cola factory in Puento alto Sunday around 5 pm … And all in barely three days.

Comments Off on Kiev, Ukraine: Anarchists burned a police car
E-mail communication dated 18 October 2019
It’s a classic, it’s a must-know thing!
On the night of 16 to 17 October 2019, the Toyota Prius car of the patrol police was burned to the ground. It happened at the guarded parking lot in Svyatoshinsky district of Kyiv. We, anarchists, take responsibility for the arson and will publish an exclusive video where you can see how the police car burns.
Why are we at war with the police bastards?
Today, our lives are under the iron control of the state and corporations. No one asks us whether we want it or not. The authorities do what they think is right. For them, we are a commodity, cattle and lowlifes. Everyone who wants to oppose this way of life is expected to face repression, death. But control and repression would not be possible without the police, the rotten body of the Interior Ministry. The police are the main instrument in the hands of the authorities. Therefore, we are forced to wage war with police crap – for the sake of freedom, for the sake of justice.

Comments Off on Leipzig, Germany: 2 Eurovia Vinci Excavators Torched in Solidarity with Imprisoned Comrades
Prison Profiteers Attacked – Excavators Torched – Solidarity with the Park Bench 3
During the night of October 11th, we set fire to two Eurovia Vinci excavators.
Vinci, as a global company, has shown many times in the past and in the present that it apologizes for NOTHING and that it is ready to accept any order, no matter how dirty.
This can be seen in many examples, especially in the construction project of an airport near Nantes (France), where the now evicted ZAD was located. Here Vinci, in cooperation with the French government, want to clear 200 hectares of forest to build the third largest airport in France. However, this project was prevented by militant and civil society protests.
Vinci is also involved in the construction of prisons making them a part of a system of domination and oppression.

Comments Off on UK : Letter from John Bowden, long-term radical prisoner
There is a group of prisoners who although imprisoned for non-political offences subsequently become politicised or radicalised whilst in jail, and in both the USA and Britain this is a phenomenon that has become increasingly widespread.
In the USA during the 1960s and 70s the radicalisation of ordinary black prisoners, in particular, was fostered by the centrality of imprisonment in the experience of black activists and revolutionaries like Malcolm X (who described prisons as “universities of revolution”), Eldridge Cleaver, George Jackson, H Rap Brown, Angela Davis and others. George Jackson described his own politicisation succinctly: “I met Marx, Lenin, Trotsky, Engels, and Mao when I entered prison and they redeemed me”.
Thus those whom W.E.B. Dubois described as an “army of the wronged” increasingly defined themselves as political prisoners who were the products of an oppressive political-economic order. This belief underpinned the praxis of radical groups such as the Black Panthers and Symbionese Liberation Army, and prisons were seen as the epicentre of a broader social and political revolution. The call for recognition of radicalised prisoners claim to political status underpinned prisoners’ demands in a series of protests that punctuated the 1970s in U.S. Prisons such as Folsom, Soledad, San Quentin and, later, Attica.

Comments Off on Germany , Berlin : CALL-OUT TO DEMO AM 2.11.19 – feminist, determined, irreconcilable
More than one year after our last demo on 29.09.18 we want to go to a demonstration together with you and the other threatened projects.
On 2.11.19 we want to come together from the Lausitzer Platz and the Köpi at the Schlesischen Tor and then move from Kreuzberg to Friedrichshain powerfully and loudly.
The situation of the Liebig34 has not changed. It has only become more threatening.
In the last few months we have not let ourselves be undermined or small-minded by the dominance and the negotiations of crappy Cis types. Nothing will change about that. More than 10 years ago Padovicz snatched the house of the house community in the last minute in front of their nose and then issued a lease contract which gives the people living in the house considerably less rights than regular tenants*. Our case, which is to be negotiated on 15.11.19 at 9:00 a.m. in the Tegeler Weg, joins a series of rental scandals. Only we have less chances and possibilities due to this trick and were only therefore terminable at all. Three weeks after the possibly lost trial the Liebig34 can be cleared.

Comments Off on Italy , Prison of Rossano Calabro: Report of the talk with the deported sardinian imprisoned anarchist Davide Delogu
After months of struggles by Davide (followed by 3 complaints and months of isolation) we were able to get a talk authorized. During the talk Davide confirmed that the punitive transfer to the prison of Rossano Calabro, where he is now imprisoned, is due precisely to these complaints (in total he has 15 for his struggles in prisons and especially in the Sicilian isolation).
He is keen to let us know the condition we live in Rossano, where detainees punished from all over Italy are imprisoned and in his section many have made the 14 bis [particular prison surveillance measure, in which a form of isolation is applied to the prisoner; not to be confused with the detention regime in 41 bis] and even long sentences. David still has 2 years of disciplinary isolation, but they prefer not to have them start in this prison because they know of his file and David’s previous struggles in isolation.

Pie and mash squat
203 Deptford High Street

All the elements talked about constitute a part of the Chilean context, useful to understand anarchist action in Chile and to inform generally about the struggles, initiatives and debates present in this territory.
With ups and downs, with more or less comrades, with fluctuating tensions and motivations, anarchy is still alive and continues to express itself through different projects and actions that affirm a presence on the street. and intersect with different struggles that challenge the established order, aiming for total liberation.

Comments Off on Fantasma, clandestine anarchist newspaper 3 October 2019
MAELSTROM OF THE WATERFALL
Many weeks have past. Many steps have blazed my way. There where no other liana guided me through the covert. Only my two feet. They carried me, showed me the vast green towards rocks, canyons and caves. Many would have climbed up full of daring, would have looked down with a sharpened sight, or would have run into the cavernous black with a childish curiousity. From the corner of my eye I noticed the changing surrounding but I chose to ignore it. Daring, sharpened sight, childish curiousity, this wasn‘t the time for it. But now I am standing here, in
front of a gigantic waterfall whose maelstrom is able to engulf
eveything and everyone in its depth. I pause, looking at the fascinating foam, listening to the sound of dropping water. It looks beautiful but it also brings death.
It feels good to see this newspaper project not being six feet under.
Lonelyness, turmoil and thousands of difficulties have let this liana almost die and with it a connection between the visibles and the unvisibles. But this is not the way this project shall end. Not without unwanted external interferences!

Avis de tempêtes – bulletin anarchiste pour la guerre sociale n°22
(octobre 2019) vient de sortir.
Pour lire, imprimer et diffuser ce petit bulletin autour de soi (il est en format A5, et celui-ci fait 20 pages), on pourra retrouver chaque nouveau numéro tous les 15 du mois, ainsi que les précédents, sur le
“Rouen, 26 septembre. Un épais nuage de fumée noire de 20 km de long et 6 km de large s’envole dans le ciel, chargé de matières toxiques, avant que ses suies ne se déposent en masse dans les environs, et en tâches de léopard jusqu’en Wallonie belge.
Les jours suivants, comme un réflexe conditionné, des citoyens en colère manifestent pour demander « Vérité et Justice » au garant de leur empoisonnement durable, l’Etat,
neutralisant ainsi par avance toute critique de l’existant. On insiste sur tout ce qui peut permettre aux puissants de se sortir de cette mauvaise passe, sur chaque aspect partiel qui leur permet de continuer à gérer et administrer la situation : les seuils et les substances mesurées dans l’air, les dispositifs d’alerte à la population, l’indemnisation des dégâts, la qualité des informations communiquées, etc. Sur tout, sauf sur la fermeture de ce complexe industriel, qui ne pourrait qu’être liée à un début de critique de ce monde, concernant par exemple ce qui est produit, comment, pourquoi et pour qui.
Sur tout, sauf sur l’essentiel : arrêter la catastrophe permanente plutôt que de l’aménager.”

Comments Off on Trento, Italy: ”Renata”operation – Dates of the trial hearings
On Friday, October 18, 2019, in Trento, will begin the trial against the seven comrades arrested during the “Renata” repressive operation on February 19, 2019.
The trial will take place in an abbreviated manner. The hearings, as soon as the defendants make explicit request in the courtroom, will be open. It will therefore be an opportunity, in addition to the solidarity outside, to see the comrades as well. Agnese, Rupert, Sasha, Nico, Giulio and Poza will be present. It is very probable that also Stecco will be present, unless videoconferencing is imposed on him at last. As early as the next hearing, November 26, there could be a sentence.

Comments Off on Athens,Greece : Rally against the police occupation army and its sexist attacks in Exarchia & Solidarity with Rojava
On Saturday, October 12, anarchist-antiauthoritarian women comrades organized a gathering in Exarchia square against the police occupation army in the neighborhood and its sexist and homophobic attacks.
A demo led by a women’s bloc moved towards the police checkpoint in Tositsa street, where dozens of women in struggle stood in front the riot police forces, chanting slogans against the cops and drug mafias, against state repression and patriarchy, in solidarity with immigrants and refugees, raising their fists in support of the people’s resistance in Rojava.

Comments Off on Greece: Statement from Revolutionary Struggle Members Pola Roupa & Nikos Maziotis about the Planned Turkish Military Invasion of Rojava
US State gives green light for the Turkish military invasion of Northern Syria
October 7th, 2019
After a period of a hypocritical stance by the American state towards the Kurds of Northern Syria and the other rebellious peoples of the region whom they supported militarily as they gave their lives in battle against ISIS (Islamic State) and their armed forces of men and women liberated one city after another by expanding the revolutionary project of Democratic Confederalism, the US regime has shown its true face by giving the green light to the Turkish state for the military invasion of the region. It is the expected development of the “democratic” American state and the “democratic” West in general. It is to be expected from history itself and from the ease with which the ‘great powers’ have been using the struggling peoples in the chessboard of their geopolitical and economic interests over the years to extend their power.
It should also serve as an example for the people of this country during the present moment, when the Greek state is once again offering “land and water” to its American “allies” for their military intervention in the region, a fact which is promoted as a success by the government following its meeting with M. Pompeo and the “upgraded” military presence in Greece under the ‘defense cooperation’ agreement.

Comments Off on Italy – Raids in Genoa
On 4/10/19 at dawn, the Genoa ROS (special operations of carabinieri) turned up at the homes of two comrades in Genoa with search warrants [they went back to one of them on 10/10 to seize IT material they had forgotten – a computer, two modems, an USB key, a paper draft of this writing].
The warrant reads: ‘under investigation for offences concerning articles 110, 423, 270bis, committed in Genoa on 30/07/19’.
Through local web news we learn that we are accused of setting fire to an ENI car, an action that was followed by a claim published in counter-information websites.
What they were looking for (we quote from the warrant) are: ‘objects and material related to the offences following which procedures are underway with particular reference to items of clothing used as disguises during the perpetration of the offences as well as documents and/or IT material related to the claim of the criminal action.’
I have decided to write this short text to make known the following:
Monday 2 September 2019 I was captured by the Criminal Investigation Police in the streets of Mexico City. The police transferred me to the Reclusorio Varonil Norte on the warrant for re-arrest for attacks against public order and aggravated damage of property, in relation to the proceedings opened against me following the accident with explosives in 2012.
I want to say clearly that my wish to NOT WANT to politicise this situation is due to the fact that I DID NOT and DO NOT want any violent or radical direct actions to be carried out in my name or for my sake or solidarity:
I am keeping this judicial procedure, as well as the old one, outside the radical anarchist or feminist movement that I want to avoid being related with, since I don’t belong to these movements.

Comments Off on Athens,Greece : LET US STRUGGLE COLLECTIVELY AGAINST THE REPRESSIVE ARMY AND ITS SEXIST ATTACKS (EN,GR)
LET US STRUGGLE COLLECTIVELY AGAINST THE REPRESSIVE ARMY AND ITS SEXIST ATTACKS
In the context of the wider repressive campaign, which targets the squatted spaces of life and struggle, the refugees and immigrants, the anarchist movement and the social and class resistance, the state is attempting to impose conditions of occupation in Exarcheia, an area that symbolizes the social prerogatives of solidarity, self-organization and revolt.
As every plan which attempts to terrorize and humiliate the people of the struggle and subordinate the whole population, this state operation of conquest is expressed also through the attempt to humiliate and disgrace the women of the struggle, girls, students, women workers, mothers who live and struggle in the area.
Squads of riot police occupy the streets and the corners of the public space. They invade in squats at dawn, destroying the self-organized life of uprooted people and the structures, which were built by the solidarity of those from below. With guns and gloves in their hands, they lead women, children and men in police buses in order to transfer them to concentration camps, where there is only imprisonment, impoverishment and death, like the death of a child in a carton box or in the flames that suffocated Faride Tajik from Afganistan in Moria, while she was surrounded by barbed wire.

Comments Off on Athens,Greece : Demo: LET’S TEAR DOWN the WAR MACHINES of the STATES – Solidarity with the Rojava revolution
Demonstration Saturday 12 October 5:30 pm at Propylaia (Panepistimiou street) Athens
The militaristic-fascist machine of the turkish state, backed by northamerican and russian imperialism, invaded Rojava, two days ago, across its borders, so as to complete what it started with the occupation and ethnic cleansing in Afrin: the crushing of the social revolution and the subjugation of the peoples of Syria. The ultimate goal of all state agents is the suffocation of the kurdish revolutionary movement, the uprooting of the PKK bases and the annihilation of the social struggles in the broader region of Anatolya, Mesopotamia and Middle East, for the next decades.
The popular resistance of the revolted in N. Syria and in the whole of Kurdistan is the hope of this planet. The international movement has the historical duty to blockade the political, economic and technical support given to turkish fascism and imperialism by multinational capital.
Our heart beats alongside the comrades who are fighting today in the liberated land of Rojava, beneath the bombs launched nato war planes. Victory to the weapons of the revolution, victory to the fighters of the Revolutionary Union of Internationalist Solidarity, who having given themselves wholeheartedly to the revolution of Kurdistan and N. Syria, with heavy cost from which they did not yield, are a radical and rare contemporary example of organized and continuous participation of anarchists in the defense of a revolution.
