France, Marseille : A two days of Anarchist book fair will take place in Marseille between the 21st and 22nd of September 2019.

Still here. Throwing ourselves into the unbridled adventure of anarchist practice, in the cyclone of free ideas and unregulated action, in a game without prizes, of life without mediations.
Still here. Away from and against ideologies promoting political subjects, against the fogged-up glasses of citizenism, against the imposition of a life suffocated by security, which has transformed existence into habit and obedience.
Still here. Despite the attempts of recuperation and obliteration of the idea of freedom. Despite realisms, moralisms and power’s false critics, who aim to reform domination rather than destroying it.
Still here. As the technological offensive is in the process of renewing and deepening domination, we strive to weave complicities, passionately pursuing the destruction of oppression and exploitation, in the attempt to break through this tedious present.
Still here. Even though technological dependencies distract and numb us from the increasing loss of sensibilities and imagination. Even though virtual relationships try to despoil us of our humanity and capacities to understand our surroundings.
Still here. To claim with love and pride anarchist ideas, in an epoch when integration and repression march hand in hand, increasingly eclipsing the horizons of revolt.
Two days to meet to discuss and deepen anarchist ideas and proposals; to share our books and agitation material, testaments to our revolutionary heritage ; to find new paper sparks, ready to set fire to this present torn between rooted resignation and occasional outbursts of rage.
Two days and an anarchist bookfair, free from commercial or institutional compromises.
Two days drenched in ideas of freedom, far from the old and new herders, far from the old and new herds. Because the possibilities are still open for those striving to combine ideas and practice, between individual tension and social transformation.
These two days will take place in Marseille between the 21st and 22nd of September 2019.

The Local Kids – Issue 4 – Summer 2019

A compilation of texts, a contribution to a correspondence between those who desire anarchy and subversion.
At what point can one speak in the plural? When one is plus one, or should it at least be a few, or many more? Some will consider it a failure to speak as a lone voice; for others it’s the most valued stage
to speak from. Determined to not be alone, putting forward questions,
should one be satisfied by any response?
The outcome of the encounter
can be so tasteless and banal that the effort seems senseless.
Determined to speak up, are there still questions left unanswered? At times the continuous affirmation of the I becomes nauseating; it’s unclear if anyone is still supposed to be listening. The persistence of the individual to carry on can be admirable, but isn’t it suspicious – this avoidance of the complications that are others? And what is left of the expansive potentials of the we when it’s used as a camouflage strategy for the I to dissolve into the background?

uk, bristol :Graffiti on Hoarding Boards of ‘Ashton Rise’ new urban sprawl development….. 15/08/19

At the ‘Ashton Rise’ development on the South Bristol Metro Bus Route(near Bristol City Football Club) graffiti was sprayed:
“Yet more urban sprawl… this time on allotments, and social
housing….Check 325.nostate.net tag Bristol for eco-actions”.
This was “socially cleansed” within 24 hours…maybe they feel a bit threatened? The standard “art-graffiti” around the area still remains.
Ashton Rise has a budget of £21 million. The council brag of it’s
“affordable” nature, but the only thing thats cheap about their project are the promises of “creating communities” and “sustainability”.
They can remove our traces…but they will never crush our rebellious hearts!

Comments Off on France: Update about the situation ofAnarchist Vincenzo (August 14, 2019)

France: Update about the situation ofAnarchist Vincenzo (August 14, 2019)

 Following the arrest of the anarchist Vincenzo Vecchi, which took place in France on August 8, 2019, thanks to the joint work of the Italian and French police, this morning (August 14) at 11.00 am, at the Court of Appeal of Rennes, was held a hearing about the extradition to Italy. According to the fleshless information that has been possible to learn so far, during the hearing the judges decided nothing about extradition, as they would lack useful “different elements”. A further hearing has been set for August 23rd. So in that time he would presumably remain imprisoned at Rennes prison.
To send mail or telegrams to people held in French prisons it would be necessary to have the specific identification code (numero d’écrou) that each prison assigns to the individual inmate to identify him and that, as regards the correspondence, should be indicated in the address in a precise manner. Unfortunately, by contacting the prison the answer is that this number cannot be provided (although in the other situations exactly the opposite has happened), but that it’s sufficient to indicate name and surname and the letters should still arrive. You can try. Below is the address:
Vincenzo Vecchi
Centre pénitentiaire de Rennes-Vezin
Rue du Petit Pré
35132 Vezin-le-Coquet
France
Vincenzo was a fugitive and wanted since 2012, following a final sentence of 11 years and 6 months in prison that was imposed for the accusations (specifically, the crime of “devastation and pillage”) inherent in the days of revolt against the summit of the G8 which took place in Genoa in July 2001.

Comments Off on North Kurdistan, Turkey : Fascist AKP-MHP regime shaken by countless fire and bomb attacks by revolutionary forces

North Kurdistan, Turkey : Fascist AKP-MHP regime shaken by countless fire and bomb attacks by revolutionary forces

For three weeks already the offensive of the United Revolutionary Movement of the Peoples HBDH (Turkish: Halkların Birleşik Devrim Hareketi) continues unabated. For weeks now the fascist AKP-MHP regime and its supporters in the whole of Turkey and the occupied Northern Kurdistan have been shaken by endless fire and bomb attacks of the militias and guerrilla forces of the revolutionary alliance.
The United Revolutionary Movement of Peoples was founded on March 12, 2016 and is the front organization of various revolutionary, socialist and communist parties and organizations of Turkey and Kurdistan. In the HBDH the Kurdish Freedom Movement in leadership of the Kurdistan Workers Party PKK unites with the revolutionary left of Turkey to a common front in the struggle against AKP-MHP fascism, for the liberation of the occupied Kurdistan and the establishment of a socialist Turkey.
Simultaneously with the renewed rise of the threats of Turkish fascism against the Democratic Federation of Northeast Syria, the militias and guerrilla units started a new offensive in the heart of Turkish colonialism. In the following some of the past actions are summarized:

Declaration of 30 June
On the 29.06 at 16.00 o’clock, in the district Datca of Muğla, Palamutbükü, a sabotage action against a television station was accomplished. The United Revenge Militia of the Peoples confessed to the action with which a television station was met, which legitimizes fascism with its propaganda of lies. Tourists from home and abroad were warned against using Turkey as a holiday destination. Nobody should travel to the areas used by AKP-MHP fascism as the main source of financing for war and massacres.

Turin, Italy : In the detention centre for migrants in Corso Brunelleschi: a fire every day…

The atmosphere remains tense and edgy in the detention centre of Corso Brunelleschi: during a storm on Friday, a young man took advantage of guards and forces of order’s diverted attention to climb bars and walls and conquer freedom.
Even if the official media present protests and fires with an aura of exceptionality, burning mattresses and the few pieces of furniture left is now a recurring practice to draw attention to the many problems inside, the least being the lack of a barber. Recently prisoners also told us that there was not enough shampoo for them to wash their hair or any fresh water to drink.

Comments Off on Germany: Feminist Autonomous Cells – Because the Night Belongs to Us

Germany: Feminist Autonomous Cells – Because the Night Belongs to Us

Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us
– Patti Smith
For some time now we have been watching with concern the direction in which emancipatory struggles in German-speaking countries have been moving in recent years. We, the people who have been politicized within these structures in recent years, have since felt an ever increasing sense of responsibility for the direction of our groups and movements. At the same time, we have experienced personal concerns and fears about what we should do with our lives and how we should deal with, for example, financial and repressive pressures, that were not adequately addressed by these same structures. Our confidence in the strength of the left-wing radical subculture was wavering. Personal crises coincided with what we saw as structural deficiencies and doubts about our connections and “the movement”:
We were often overwhelmed by the size and number of political opponents and State attacks, remaining trapped in reaction to these external circumstances and were already overworked and exhausted by them. Continue Reading →

Rome, Italy – On the gathering outside the detention centre for migrants of Ponte Galeria on 28th July

On Sunday 28th July about a hundred people gathered outside the walls of the detention centre for migrants at Ponte Galeria in solidarity with those inside. This time they had also intented to greet the prisoners in the male unit, reopened at the beginning of June. Three armoured vehicles and an antiriot squad were already lined up, blocking the road; the police seemed very nervous at the approach of those in solidarity, and stopped them from reaching the male unit. So they gathered near the entrance and tried to break the silence inside the centre with chants to the prisoners.
The male unit had just been restructured to repair the damage following a revolt in 2015, which led to its closure and a new internal organization had been introduced. Prisoners are now split up into six large cells, which are non-communicating, and there are no common areas. Meals are taken inside the cells and mobile phones are seized on arrival. Communication with outside is only allowed through public phones with prepaid cards.

México, México City : Call for action by Féminas Brujas e Insurreccionalistas (F.B.I) [Female witches and insurrectionalists]

WE ARE BAD AND WE COULD BE WORSE: WE ARE YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE!
“Provocation” and “Illegality” is all action not executed by the State that exceeds its laws and regulations; that’s why the authorities insist on presenting the anarchist war against the system of domination as a “provocation” that seeks to unleash repression. But reality teaches us that repression is here now and is practiced by power on a daily basis either veiled or brutally.
The State continues to exercise the monopoly of violence and is only willing to share it with the groups of so-called “organised crime” with whom they share the same DNA, proving that there is nothing new in your Fourth Transformation. As we have always said: they are the same misogynist dogs now with a rose-coloured collar. Finally, anti-system rage has managed to spread fury to broad fractions of the so-called “feminist movement”, sadly asleep until yesterday afternoon. They have finally understood that pacifism is the most active accomplice of patriarchal power and domination.
We have always expressed that we are feminists.
WE ARE ANARCHISTS and for that we struggle against Patriarchy, not for feminism. We know the feminist ideology and see it every day in ‘action’, occupying seats and public positions preaching about our lives and our bodies to propagate “the feminist Homeland” as a comrade from MORENA declared, forgetting (consequently) that the Homeland is the territory of Patriarchy. Neither Martha Lucia Michel nor Marta Lamas nor Marilú Razo nor any of the feminists of the system (politicals, academics and speakers) represent us. Their reaction against purple and black violence, their amasiatus with Sheimbaum only reinforces their status as opportunists in search of a bone, that’s why they lick the boots and suck the eggs of the President. The best example of their complicity is the hashtag #they don’t represent us, affirming that with anti-systemic violence we tarnish “the defence of women’s rights”, promoting complicit passivity and imposing politically correct behaviour of the “good people”.

Mexico City, Mexico: Angry rioting against police rape

12 August 2019
“Cops, pigs, rapists”
On Monday, August 12, 2019, hundreds of women took to the streets to express their anger at the patriarchal and sexist violence of the police. A few days earlier, four uniformed pigs raped a young woman aged 17 in the patrol car in the streets of Azcapotzalco province. This case echoes another, a little older, where a 16-year-old girl was raped by a police officer in the National Photographic Museum in the centre of Mexico City.
The headquarters of the Public Security Directorate was the meeting point of the demo. On the facade of the State building, slogans have been traced to the bomb, such as “we are mean, we can be worse“, “cops, pigs, rapists” or “to attack one of us, it is to attack us all “… Then the procession left for a stroll in the streets of the city and covered the walls with a multitude of anti-police and anarcha-feminist tags; the protesters found themselves in front of the Attorney General’s building in Mexico City to settle accounts. Once in front, the more determined ones tagged the walls outside (“we do not need to be brave, we need to be free,” “pig cops” or “corrupt policemen“) as inside (on the insignia of the institution) and ransacked the furniture of the reception. The facade of the glass entrance also fell in pieces.

Rovereto, Italy : A temp agency under attack

From the local press we learn that in the night between 30th and 31st July, the Randstad agency was attacked with a homemade device, which smashed a window to pieces. A text of claim was allegedly left on the spot, where solidarity with imprisoned anarchists and the anarchists sentenced in Florence is expressed. The same agency had been targeted last September.
According to the press, it collaborates with the TAP works.

Plaisir (Yvelines) France : Triple escape from detention centre– 14 August 2019

On the night of Tuesday to Wednesday, August 14, a Tunisian and an Algerian, both 21 years old, escaped from the Plaisir administrative detention centre (CRA) located next to the police station. A third was arrested on the roof of the building. The alert was given around 2:30 in the morning.
The occupants of room number 13 escaped by opening the bars of the window with the aid of a sheet. Police patrols chased after the escapees. But their search for the last two has been futile.

Madrid, Spain: Two rental bikes burnt

Against smart cities, against green capitalism, against gentrification, against the city.
Against the architecture of consumption, against the commodification of all forms of life, against property.
Against peace, against the absence of tension, against democracy, against authority.
The night of July 26-27 we set fire to two rental bikes in the area of Moncloa (Madrid).
May the heat of the fire and our hugs reach the 3 of Parkbank and all those in affinity.
For conflict, for anarchy

Comments Off on Germany, Dresden : Arson Attack Against Rent Profiteers Vonovia

Germany, Dresden : Arson Attack Against Rent Profiteers Vonovia

Vonovia Remains Undesirable

13.08.19: Europe’s largest listed property group Vonovia once again increased its profit in 2018. The Bochum-based DAX30 company was able to increase its profit to 1.07 billion euros. This means that of one euro’s rental income, approx. 38 cents, IE more than one third, will flow to the shareholders. Vonovia has thus succeeded in optimizing the entire profit segment. But who pays these enormous profits of the company?
It is no big secret nor is it surprising news that they are generated at the expense of tenants. Through questionable settlements, repairs, upgrades and the resulting rent increases, Vonovia succeeds in generating more and more money and then distributes it to its shareholders.

Avis de tempêtes #19/20

Avis de tempêtes – bulletin anarchiste pour la guerre sociale n°19/20 (juillet-août 2019) vient de sortir.

Pour lire, imprimer et diffuser ce petit bulletin autour de soi (il est en format A5, et celui-ci fait 16 pages), on pourra retrouver chaque nouveau numéro tous les 15 du mois, ainsi que les précédents, sur le blog :

https://avisdetempetes.noblogs.org

“Dans le cadre de ces réflexions et dans la définition de perspectives qui puissent nous orienter sur les chemins incertains et inexplorés de la révolte, nous pensons qu’il faut éviter de se confronter à la réalité avec des yeux remplis d’enthousiasmes faciles qui risquent de nous faire
voir des insurrections à tous les coins de rue, des complices dans
chaque indigné, des sujets révolutionnaires dans chaque exploité.

En même temps, nous pensons qu’il est tout aussi dangereux de rester ancrés dans une sorte de réalisme pessimiste qui risque de nous immobiliser par les temps qui courent, de nous transformer en attentistes emprisonnés
dans une logique de type déterministe. Ce qui nous semble fondamental, c’est de se placer dans une optique d’observation lucide qui peut nous permettre de saisir les transformations en cours, d’identifier les aspects vulnérables de l’ennemi, afin d’évaluer au mieux quoi et comment attaquer.”

Frankfurt, Germany: Siemens Car Torched in Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners

During the night of the 12th to the 13th of August we torched a Siemens car in Frankfurt-Bockenheim.
Siemens earns its money by building locking mechanisms for prisons, supplying surveillance technology to Turkey, among other countries, and upgrading Frontex and the EU’s external borders.
We send greetings to Lisa imprisoned in Spain, the Park Bench 3, Loic and all the others who are held captive by the State or on the run. We are with you in our thoughts and our actions, may these sparks of rebellion penetrate through the walls and the bars to you! We continue, despite the circumstances, against the false pacification of the public space and for the moments when we can still feel our love and our freedom.
For a world without prisons, freedom for all prisoners!
