Graz, Austria: Car of Sodexo set on fire

In the darkness of the 6th of march we set a car of the company Sodexo in Graz on fire. Sodexo makes a profit with the deportation system by delivering shitty food to deportation centers. All companies that profit from this industry are our enemies and just deserve our hatred.
We feel connected to all accomplices who are fighting against the domination in this world.
Above all, those behind bars and those who support them, we want to show our revolutionary solidarity through this fire!
Through the walls we specifically send a burning hug to all recently detained anarchists in Turin, Trento and Rovereto. SILVIA, NICCOLO, BEPPE, ANTONIO, STECCO, RUPERT, AGNESE, SASHA, POZA, NICO, GIULIO tutti liberi!
We also send a burning greeting through the bars to Loić! We hope that you will feel supported by such acts in your unbending attitude.
For this action, we used fire accelerators that we filled into emptied beverage cans. We put the cans on the floor under the tires of the car. After 5 to 10 minutes, the tires burn and the car flares off.
Fire to Sodexo!
Fire to all cages!

Trentino, Italy : Let it be known: a communique from Trentino

During the anti-anarchist maxi-operation of February 19 and the days that followed, some things happened which should be made public, without whining or victimization.
During last Tuesday’s raids, one of the arrested comrades was forced to kneel by a carabiniere or policeman pointing a gun at his head.
During another raid police tried to get into a basement before waking comrades in their home, then secretly complained that they hadn’t managed to hide what they had intended.

Comments Off on Greece, Thessaloniki : Intervention at the Greek-Russian Chamber of Commerce in solidarity with the Anarchist comrades in Russian

Greece, Thessaloniki : Intervention at the Greek-Russian Chamber of Commerce in solidarity with the Anarchist comrades in Russian

The Russian state has escalated recently its repressive attack on the anarchist movement. A barrage of kidnappings-arrests and torturing of anarchist comrades, who are charged of belonging to armed organizations, with some of the cases in the last year being
The network case
The case of the anarchist Vyatcheslav Lukichev
The case of the anarchist Kirill Kuzminkin
The case of the anarchist from Crimea Evgeniy Karakashev
The case of the anarchist Azat Miftahov who is charged with participation in Narodnaya Samooborona
These specific moves don’t surprise anybody since it’s a tactic often uses by the Russian state against its political enemies, minorities and members of the LGBTQI community. Demonstrations are repressed, political opponents are imprisoned, fascist groups are promoted while the kidnappings and the tortures by the FSB (the continuation of the KGB) are a frequent phenomenon.

Italy,ferrara prison : ‘The most beautiful present’ – Antonio, Beppe, Lorenzo and Niccolò from the prison of Florence

‘Over the years we often happened to play with our imagination and imagined how and when Asilo would be evicted. How many police would invade the neighbourhood, how long the barricades would hold out, how long those who managed to reach the roof would resist, whether the eviction would coincide with a repressive operation, what the response outside would be like.
Two weeks have passed, and today many of these questions were answered. But we still can’t make any sense of it. It might be because they took us away, one after the other, first to Le Vallette in solitary, then to the social unit of Ferrara prison. Struck by an investigation that depicts us as an internal sect hidden by the wider structure of those who organized at Asilo throughout the years. A committal for trial that disgustingly selected and twisted pieces of private, political and friendly conversations with the intention of confirming the thesis of the investigation. A reconstruction that in no way can catch the variety of rebel tensions, ideas and impetus unleashed from that place to the surrounding world.

Italy : Updates on the arrest of comrade Leonardo Landi

On Tuesday 19th February our comrade and friend Leonardo Landi was arrested due to a residual sentence of 2 years and 8 months. In these days, in fact, the Cassation confirmed the 2012 sentence concerning a robbery that took place in 2007, thus making it effective. Leo is currently being held in the prison of Lucca.
We reconfirm our closeness and solidarity with Leo.

Comments Off on Trento : Our comrades

Trento : Our comrades

10/02/2019
It’s Tuesday 7th February, 4:40am and it’s still dark. In via Alessandria, in Turin, where Asilo Occupato has existed for 24 years, dozens of plain clothes police storm the place. In a few minutes the road fills up with police vans and cars, the carabinieri in antiriot gear, the finance police. Submachine guns in hand, they immediately make their intentions clear:  besides the eviction of the Asilo, yet another repressive operation is underway. Seven arrest warrants with charges of subversive association (article 270bis), while the investigation involves about thirty comrades.
It’s not surprising, given the times, that the operation is set up against those who for years have been struggling against prisons for migrants (previously known as CIEs, now as CPRs) and against State deportations, and have denounced the complicity of those who collaborate with the hell that is defined ‘migrants’ welcome’. Having been repeatedly requested by 5-star movement mayor Appendino, the eviction and the investigation are being carefully followed directly by the Minister of the Interior, who with his remark: ‘Vandals arrested in Turin: from words to deeds’ makes it understood that this is no ordinary operation.

Montpellier : The Gueux celebrate Karnaval despite bans and cops

Europe 1 / Wednesday 6 March 2019

Some 400 people, according to the police, participated on Tuesday evening in Montpellier, despite a prefectural ban, in the “Karnaval of Gueux “, anarcho-libertarian nocturnal wandering. Seven people were arrested, police said.

Unlike previous years, the procession failed to enter  the city centre, protected by several trucks of the forces of order, including a water cannon. The procession, which included a dozen people dressed in yellow vests, wandered the streets around the historical centre of the city, for nearly three hours, to the sound of medieval songs. Several elements of street furniture were damaged by the participants and bins burned.

Omonoia’s police department murders
Omonoia’s police department murders
Ebuka from Nigeria was killed at February 8, inside the police department of Omonoia, under the well-known “suspicious circumstances”. Ebuka was nor the first, neither the last person to leave his last breath inside this plumber. His name is one besides many others in the lists of the murdered by the bravery of the shit-cops. We nor forget, neither forgive.
At the evening of 26/2, after the demo that was called in Propilea about the state-murder, we painted with stencil and made a writing near Ameriki’s square, in the memory of Ebuka and against the authoritarian gloom that surrounds us.

Let’s not leave the beast of oblivion and apathy to swallow anyone of the unseen and the damned of this world.

Berlin: Our propaganda remains the attack: cops are murderers!

Actforfree received by mail :
———————————————–
The following is a translation from de.indymedia.
No words of justification are necessary for that, what has happened to a cop station in Berlin on the morning of February 27, 2019. All those who were already handcuffed, humiliated by the cops, sexually assaulted, beaten, driven through the streets, jailed, or detained understands our language. Our fire speaks to those who have understood or learned that it is always a danger to life and limb to fall into the hands of the state. Many who were dragged in patrol cars or cop stations did not leave them alive.
We do not hope for justice, nor for more humanistic cops. Instead, we deepen our enemy determination and draw a line that is appropriate to the quality of social conflicts. There is nothing to discuss with the killers and their collaborators. Not even if you present yourself all year round as friends and helpers at their police congress.

Athens,Greece: Anarchist Political Statement by comrade Antonis Stamboulou at the Court of the Appeal trial of Revolutionary Struggle case on 4/3/2019

Notes from Act for free :Anarchist comrade Antonis Stampoulos  is out from the prison   HE IS BACK TO THE STREETS! ON JUNE 2018 and he still on trial for the  Revolutionary Struggle apple trial

—————————————-

I want to clarify in principle that what I will say is a political statement, not an apology, as I am anarchist and do not apologize to the state power. I also do not want to ask for any mitigation and I am entitled to the law, as the dispute here is another.
In October 2014 and in the years to come, I experienced the way the state sorts its accounts with the internal enemy. The police arbitrariness and violence, the foolishness of retaliation and the hypocrisy of justice. I can assure every rebellious heart that the physical, psychological and bureaucratic violence of the repressive mechanism is incapable of disciplining even one person.
Not all of this adventure, from the kidnapping and torture of hooded bugs, to the deprivation of legal rights and the violation of human rights, media cannibalism, illegal transfers, miserable prison conditions, unnecessary trials and indications convictions, to make me review at least the views I have had. On the contrary, I have believed, with indelible evidence, that the state is a legitimate criminal mechanism with principles similar to a criminal organization. Its purpose is to perpetuate, since, although it has the well-known historical role as a tool of the ruling class, it has self-existence itself. It is a living organism that enormously fits into its mechanisms the entire political spectrum of perceptions other than anarchists. It is aimed at the financial benefit of its members that no one produces anything more than services.
Ensures the privileges of the rich and its members have common codes of communication the hierarchy, which means fear and submission and mutual interference in unlawful or boundary actions of legality. Usually this is what maintains the balance between the opposing interests of the various conspiracies inside it and imposes the dowry.

ESPANA: III ENCUENTRO ANARQUISTA CONTRA EL SISTEMA TECNOINDUSTRIAL Y SU MUNDO

III ENCUENTRO ANARQUISTA CONTRA EL SISTEMA TECNOINDUSTRIAL Y SU MUNDO
Por tercer año consecutivo tendrá lugar en el CSOA La Gatonera (C/ Valentín Llaguno, 32) el Encuentro contra el sistema tecnoindustrial.
Este encuentro surge debido a la necesidad de generar un discurso contra el sistema de dominación en el que nos hayamos, dicho sistema impregna el mundo que nos rodea bajo una lógica tecnocientifica donde todo es medible, cuantificable y por tanto, está sujeto a un control. Dicho desarrollo se basa en la sustitución de los procesos naturales por procesos técnicos sometiendo así a los individuos, animales y el ecosistema a la mega máquina.
Cómo anarquistas consideramos que la lucha debe integrar la necesidad de proteger nuestro medio y recuperar la autonomía que este sistema nos ha arrebatado.
Durante el encuentro se realizarán charlas sobre:
– Inteligencia artificial
– Lucha contra el desarrollo tecnológico en Inglaterra
– Transhumanismo
– Contra el ecoextremismo y las tendencias misantrópicas
Y mucho más…
