The justice ministry in good cooperation with the anti-terrorism is engaging in a strong war of nerves against our comrades. Today the comrades K. Sakkas and G. Dimitrakis were transferred from the General Police headquarters to the Nigrita Serres prisons and Komotini prisons (North Greece) respectively, which are located many kilometres away from their places of residence, thus making contact with their relatives and visitors even more difficult.
In addition, when he arrived in Komotini (12 noon) comrade Giannis Dimitrakis is put in the prison isolation cell, initially without any justification, so he and his lawyer later received the “explanation” that the prison is full of prisoners and there is no room in the wing!
‘We don’t withdraw: we are here. We don’t try: we can. We don’t beg: we steal. We don’t delete: we burn. We don’t wait: we are burning with impatience…
The Conspiracy will never be stopped because it is not only an organization but a flux of ideas, and ideas cannot be stopped…’
CCF Illegal Section
On the night of 12th May we gathered to conclude our mission. To remember, ten years after his departure, anarchist comrade Mauricio Morales, who died following the unexpected activation of the explosive device he was carrying early in the morning on 22nd May 2009. The device had the Chile gendarmerie training school as its sole target.
To respond and contribute to the international call for action and propaganda in memory of Mauricio Morales….
(Hace unos meses circula por las calles una nueva publicación anárquica con la intención de aportar a la colectivización de ideas antagónicas al Poder. Al mes de junio son en total tres las ediciones que se han ido propagando por algunos territorios e instancias, siempre desde la calle, entre quienes con sinceridad compartimos un mismo horizonte y prácticas.
Periódicamente iremos subiendo los textos que han dado vida a esta nueva publicación, haciendo de nuestras ideas y tensiones elementos que se nutren en lo colectivo y no en su estancamiento, porque creemos que la propaganda es un arma y no un botín del cual aferrarnos.)
Editorial (Septiembre 2018)
De la lectura a la acción. De la lectura a la complicidad…
“Madre Tierra” es una publicación anárquica que busca analizar la realidad en la que nos desenvolvemos, como también puntualizar sobre temas trascendentes a cualquier coyuntura. Así mediante la colectivización de argumentos y visiones buscamos contribuir al debate y la discusión entre compañerxs anárquicxs.
Las ideas y prácticas que confrontan el mundo de la autoridad son el motor que impulsa el avance de la guerra social, están en constante tensión, combatiendo el estancamiento y el acomodo. Por ello, retroalimentarnos entre compañerxs nos parece de vital importancia y allí buscamos ser un aporte.
A greeting for Juan and a scream of struggle for the imprisoned anarchists on hunger strike
On 19 June 2019, from 6.00 pm, we will be outside the prison of Terni, in Via delle Campore 32, to give a greeting to Juan, an anarchist arrested on 22 May in the province of Brescia and recently transferred to this structure where there are asection AS2 and different sections of 41bis.
We will shout our hatred for the prison, in solidarity with Juan, with Anna and Silvia since 29 May on hunger strike in the prison of L’Aquila and with the anarchists on hunger strike in other prisons.
Wednesday 19 June • 6 pm At the prison of Terni at via delle Campore 32
I want to send a strong greeting of solidarity and rebellion to the anarchist comrades who are right now on hunger strike in the prisons of Italy, and the same to all those who are persecuted in the streets.
The need to fight against prisons, isolation and all the increasingly advanced measures of security that apply to all the prisoners and especially to the fighters, supposedly conflictive or dangerous or socially maladjusted, is evident.
Control (social, physical and psychological) as well as punishment and isolation are the basic pillars of the prison system, here and throughout the world. The rules of power are very simple, and whoever opposes them, both on the street and inside the prison, will be punished and isolated from a more social and calmer environment … locked in prison even in isolation modules that are nothing other than a prison inside the prison. Sometimes, they are isolated modules that have no contact with the normal modules; and in other places they are punishment cells that are in the same module, where the prisoners can interact, show solidarity, communicate but also threaten, ignore or stigmatize the punished.
From a letter dated 6/6 2019 written by anarchist comrade Maddalena Calore from Uta prison (arrived yesterday, June 14, at the Cassa AntiRepressione delle Alpi occidentali):
“…I too send a hug to Anna and Silvia with a hunger strike that I will undertake on June 10th, 11th and 12th, in solidarity with the protest that the comrades are carrying out for the conditions of detention to which they are subjected.
Against differentiated regimes and eacha form of isolation! A heartfelt all rebels everywhere, with those who seek to maintain their dignity and for those who strive for true freedom! Greetings to all the comrades. An embrace for freedom. Madda”.
Dozens of electric bikes of the BiciMad company sabotaged during the month of May.
Dozens of electric bikes of the BiciMad company were sabotaged in the centre of Madrid throughout the whole month of May. Not much to it, by cutting the electric cable the bike is put out of use. Sabotage against the structure of the city is quite simple.
Anna and Silvia’s story is like that of many other prisoners living under conditions of extreme physical and mental privation of freedom: for over two months they have been locked up in the high security section (As2) of the prison of L’Aquila by a State that is taking revenge for all the acts and words of rebellion of thousands of comrades.
But their story has now turned into something different. Since May 29 Anna and Silvia have decided to go on hunger strike, extreme act of revolt in a prison regime that does not allow any other voice.
Avis de tempêtes – bulletin anarchiste pour la guerre sociale n°18 (juin 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 :
“Se défaire des embarras qui accompagnent assez souvent les débats entre révolutionnaires quand il s’agit de couper le jus de ce monde. Oser affronter la question de la projectualité pour s’émanciper du triste sort d’anarchistes trop souvent à la remorque d’autrui. Ce qui peut s’ouvrir, c’est la possibilité de milliers de sabotages diffus frappant l’approvisionnement énergétique du monstre qu’il faut abattre. Personne ne peut prévoir ce que ça peut donner, mais une chose est sûre : c’est une pratique de la liberté.”

by actforfreedom Comments Off on Italy, “Prometeo” operation: Natasha was transferred to the Rebibbia prison in Rome
Natascia was transferred from the prison in Gradignan, near Bordeaux (France), to the Rebibbia women’s prison in Rome.Here the address:
Natascia Savio Casa Circondariale di Roma Rebibbia femminile via Bartolo Longo 92 00156 Roma Italia
Natasha, Beppe and Robert were arrested on Tuesday 21 May 2019 in the context of a repressive operation called “Prometeo” (“Prometheus”) and carried out by the ROS of carabinieri. Some searches have also been carried out.
From the dungeons of the General Police headquarters of Thessaloniki, we send comradely greetings to our comrades who once again stand in solidarity in our new adventures with the police-law repressive mincer.
We declare that we remain strong, with our dignity intact, our principles and values guiding our being. We will stand up to the new sufferings that the rulers of this world are preparing for us.
Not a step back!
Terrorism is wage slavery, no peace with the bosses.
Terrorists and bandits are States and capitalists.
We learn that the precautionary measure of house arrest has been ordered for imprisoned anarchist comrades Giovanni and Paska, accused (along with comrade Ghespe) of an explosive attack against the fascist bookshop “Il Bargello” on 01/01/2017 (when one of the police bomb-disposal squad was seriously wounded).
13/6/2019, Updates on the hunger strike of the imprisoned comrades
Latest update: Ghespe ended the hunger strike on Monday June 10, while Giovanni Ghezzi ended it at the end of last week. Both are well.
Alfredo Cospito, in Ferrara prison, has lost about 11 kilos. Being overweight before, he is not unwell but is still losing a lot of weight.
Stecco (Luca Dolce), the comrade also imprisoned in the prison of Ferrara, has lost 9 kilos.
The lawyer who visited Marco Bisesti, in the prison of Alessandria, reported that the comrade has lost 9 kilos, which is a lot given what he weighed before.
They don’t intend to give up until the comrades Anna and Silvia stop.
The comrade Anna Beniamino, in the prison of l’Aquila, has lost a few more kilos since last Wednesday’s visit.
None of these comrades is taking sugar. For Alfredo, he says that it is not a question of principle but for health reasons as sugar could be harmful to him, but he points out that as soon as he starts to be unwell he will start taking some.
On the other hand, a few days ago there was news that Ghespe (Salvatore Vespertino) on the seventh day of hunger strike in the prison of Florence-Sollicciano, had lost five kilos (thereby reaching 59) but that despite the physical fatigue, he is well and is determined to continue.
The situation is starting to get serious.
Everyone is asking about other comrades on hunger strike.
Genoa: 7 June – Gathering in solidarity with the anarchist prisoners on hunger strike
Friday June 7 from 18:30 gathering outside the Marassi prison in solidarity with the prisoners on hunger strike.
Silvia e Anna have decided to no longer accept the conditions of the section As2 in the prison of L’Aquila. They have been on hunger strike since May 29. They want to be transferred, they want the section closed, that it no longer be a place of imprisonment for them or anyone else. They have been joined by another six imprisoned comrades: for days Ghespe, Stecco, Giovanni, Alfredo, Leo and Marco have started to refuse food.
On Wednesday 12th of June, three of our anarchist comrades were arrested in Thessaloniki, during expropriating a guarded money transport that was about to refill an ATM at the university hospital AHEPA.
They were caught from cops of the counter-terrorism unit just when they were getting in their car to leave from the spot.
The two comrades are Giannis Dimitrakis and Kostas Sakkas, that had already paid the price of their political choice to stand against the authorities of this world, being targeted and serving time in prison. The third comrade, Dimitra, is accused for cooperation in the expropriation.
There have been searches in their houses and many personal thing have been taken. Media create a wave of terror. Also, in the morning of 13th of June, the comrades were took to the prosecutor. Since now, there are no more details about this case.
We stand by our comrades Dimitra, Giannis, Kostas, be strong Solidarity is our weapon

by actforfreedom Comments Off on Greece: Anarchist comrade Giannis Michailidis has escaped from Tyrintha prison.
Giannis Michailidis, anarchist prisoner for the expropriations at Velvento, Kozani, imprisoned at Tirintha open prison, in Peloponnese has been declared fugitive since the morning of 7/6/2019
STRENGTH TO THE WANTED ANARCHIST COMRADE G. MICHAILIDIS
‘You are deprived of many things when you are on the run, but to not be a citizen of the State any more is equal to a declaration of war. This fact made me as an anarchist feel consistent towards myself, something that would not be the case if for a quiet life in the arms of legitimacy I did not risk arrest or even worse, chose to surrender anticipating more lenient treatment by the enemy.’ GIANNIS MIXAILIDIS
ALWAYS STANDING ALONGSIDE
those who choose to live with rage
Those who fight in spite of our times
Those who refuse to subdue
Those who bear the weight of their choices, without measuring the consequences
We send our warmest greetings to anarchist fugitive Giannis Michailidis, we wish him to take joy in every moment of the wild freedom he has chosen, away from the subjections of every kind that imprisonment imposes. Comrade bon voyage on the paths of illegality, our thoughts are with you.
Anarchists from the anarchist project actforfree.nostate.net
From 2008, the Belgian State started a large investigation aiming at different struggles – but always without concessions – against detention centres, borders, prisons and the world of authority and exploitation.
In its viewfinder: the anarchist library Acrata, anarchist and anti-authoritarian publications (Hors Service, La Cavale and Tout doit partir), dozens of flyers and posters, more than a hundred actions, attacks and sabotages…in other words the fight against Power in all its different expressions.
Initially charged with “participation in a terrorist group”, it is finally under the accusation of “criminal association” that 12 comrades were on trial at the end of April in Brussels. Around the same time, 6 comrades received a convocation for the Chambre du Conseil connected to another investigation that could result in formal accusations for “incitement to commit crimes”.
On the 29th and 30th of April 2019, the trial was held in Brussels against anarchists prosecuted for “criminal association” as well as for a series of crimes. In 2017 the Chambre du Conseil had already disqualified the accusation of participation in a terrorist group and dropped a number of accusations for which it felt there were not sufficient grounds to charge.
Juan was transferred to the prison of Terni. He is accused of “association with the purpose of terrorism or subversion of the democratic order” (art. 270bis of the penal code), “act of terrorism with deadly or explosive devices” (art. 280bis) and “massacre” (article 285) for the attack against the headquarters of the “Lega Nord” party in Treviso in August 2018, of “possession of forged documents” (497bis) and of “carrying of weapons or objects to offend” (for a small knife, article 4 of law 110/75). Manu was transferred to the Monza prison [this last comrade is accused of “personal aiding” (art. 378), in reference to the absconding of Juan].
