Italy: Anna has been transferred from Lecce prison to Messina (March 2019)

Received by mail:
We learn that Anna (an anarchist imprisoned since September 6, 2016, for the Scripta Manent operation, sentenced on April 24, 2019, to 17 years in the first instance sentence of the trial) has been transferred from Lecce prison to Messina prison. The transfer does not seem to be due to disciplinary measures but to the need to find free cells in Lecce prison.
Anna reported that she is fine despite the somewhat troubled trip on her cell phone, but from first impressions the situation looks better than in Lecce, being in a cell with shower inside and kitchenette. They would have told her that also in this case it is a temporary situation.
In Messina there is an AS3 section (Alta Sorveglianza 3, “High Surveillance 3”), generally anarchists accused of crimes of terrorism or subversion of the democratic order are imprisoned in the AS2 circuit but currently there is no female AS2 section for imprisoned anarchists, so the comrades are placed in AS3 sections. The female AS2 section for anarchists, in L’Aquila prison (whose conditions were almost equivalent to detention under 41bis), against which a long hunger strike was carried out between May and June 2019, was substantially closed.
This is the address:

Athens, Greece: Responsibility claim by Comrades for the arson at the magistrates head court (eirinodikio)- Loukareos Street in Athens

via : athens.indymedia.
Translated by Act for freedom now!

The only people who went to court with good intentions.

Between geopolitical games, racist mobs, violent uprooting of people, set-up businesses, nationalisms, media delirium, respectable humanitarianism, a human tragedy unfolded from the fence of Evros to the islands of the Eastern Aegean.

Fortress-Europe, the Greek king-pin on its map and Erdogan’s opportunism, played their geopolitical game of dice on the lives of violently uprooted people looking for crumbs falling from the table of European bliss.

The Greek State was a worthy guard of the European fortress, decorating its mission with crowns of “patriotism” and “Greek pride” for domestic consumption, the pride of the armed against the unarmed, the well-fed against the hungry, the established against the uprooted.

We stand and reflect on the (at least) two people lost by the Beast’s bullets. It doesn’t matter if Mohammed al-Arab and Mohammad Gulzar were hit by a cop, a soldiers or a fascist vigilante’s bullets. We know that two people from our global Class were murdered by the mercenaries of our global enemy.

And we are demanding account for the crimes that their perpetrators, well camouflaged within the “national body”, no one will look for.

As the least gesture of dignity and resistance, on the morning of 9th of March we visited the courts of Loukareos street. We admit, their weakest link: the Eirinodikio. A link though of the same system that keeps safe those who rob the social reserves, those who murder by law
and punish unfortunates relentlessly.

The whole story went through unnoticed, under convenient fake news of some “short circuit”.

So let’s tell it. And those who know, know. Entrance to Eirinodikio. A large room. On the left is an ATM of Piraeus bank with its annoying built-in camera. We avoid it. To the right are some corridors leading off with courtrooms and offices. We choose a corridor. We move to the end of it so that there is no danger of anyone being trapped by the fire. At the far right end there is courtroom No 10 empty. First door, “for the public”. Second door, “for judges only”. We laugh. For the first time we see from above these rooms where human lives are played, years in prison, the pain of imprisonment. On the other hand we are not looking for the first time at the petrol tank and its fuse. We are on the judge’s bench. Everything is done. We put the petrol tank under the chair. We laugh. Light the fuse. We’re still laughing. We’re leaving.

PS1: In the face of the (anti)terrorism department’s ridiculous proclamation of a terrorist organization for the simplest and most modest signature “comrades” [male and female] that has accompanied an infinite number and all kinds of the movement’s activities for decades, for this action we choose to claim that it was carried out by COMRADES.

PS2: For Lambros who fell fighting 10 years ago.

comrades


ps: On 09/03/20,  State security [plain clothes cops] arrests four comrades in their homes in Athens. They are charged under 187A with joining a “terrorist” organisation signed “comrades” [σύντροφοι – male comrades and συντρόφισσες female comrades] and for 54 attacks that have taken place with this signature since 2016.

Today 10/3/20, on the 10th anniversary of the assassination of anarchist revolutionary Lambros Fountas, member of Revolutionary Struggle, by the paid killers of the State, we attacked Piraeus Bank at Athinon Avenue.

Italy : Manu’s letter from the prison of Monza (the comrade is now under house arrest from 6th March)

Inferno Urbano, 9th March 2020
Translated by act for freedom now!

————————-

Dear comrades,
I’m writing to tell you about my arrest and prison situation now that I have conquered a condition of imprisonment that is allowing me to recuperate all my physical and psychological faculties. I fought and struggled a lot to obtain this and have “paid” for every single word of this letter. And I’m proud of this. Some of my previous letters never reached their destination. They tried to put me in a certain prison circuit and break up the circle of affection of those closest to me.
I was the object of psychological violence and threats during my arrest, aimed at me and particularly at my parents. I was provoked for hours in a room of the Police headquarters in Brescia. In the first months of my imprisonment in Monza, besides the threat of sectioning me because of my distant past, I was object of physical, psychological and sexual threats from certain kinds of prisoners. If all this didn’t have any serious consequences, it was solely thanks to my ability, that I found from the start, to react and struggle with great effort until I ended up upturning the situation in the unit at the end of last summer, giving my contribution to embryonic forms of mobilization mainly concerning the health situation inside. For months I had to cope with drug addiction crises, self-harm in the cell, vomit and piss of cellmates due to drug abuse. I won’t go into the details, but I can assure you that the situation was really heavy. If I didn’t make known what was happening it was so as not to worry my loved ones – which I now consider a mistake, because it unwillingly makes you submit to blackmail. The ugliest thing is that I had to struggle against other prisoners. To see what sordidness people of my class can sink to caused me a lot of pain. Every day I had to clash with nazis, Muslim extremists, snitches, rapists and paedophiles. I come from the street. These things are not new. They didn’t shock me but they did hurt me, yes.

Comments Off on Berlin,Germany :Attacks on Fascist AfD Party

Berlin,Germany :Attacks on Fascist AfD Party

During the night of March 9-10, 2020 in Berlin, several attacks targeted officials and a collaborator of the far-right AfD party. These attacks are an anti-fascist response after the racist bombing in Hanau three weeks ago, which left several people dead.
At around 2:00 am, the car of Berlin’s AfD chief Nicolaus Fest was set on fire in the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf district. It only took a few minutes for it to ignite…
Then in the Reinickendorf district of Eichborndamm, a coffee shop was attacked. Its windows were broken and its facade painted. The shop, called the ‘Maestral,’ is a well-known haunt of the AfD (Berlin) regional section. In addition to being regularly frequented by activists of the fascist party, this bar often serves as a meeting place and events for “Flügel” fascists around Björn Höcke, as well as those of “Young alternatives (young section of the AfD) who have strong connections with the identity movement and nationalist student bodies.
During the same night, Gottfried Curio’s home in Knesesbeckstraße (in Lichterfelde) was targeted. Curio is a spokesperson for the AfD section of the Bundestag on domestic policy. The windows of the semi-detached house were smashed, bottles filled with paint landed on the facade and inside. The inscription “Hanau: Curio, you are the murderer! It has been highlighted for the neighborhood. In recent weeks, he has distinguished himself in a speech at the Bundestag by mocking the victims of Hanau [fascist attack which targeted shisha bars on February 19, 2020 in Hanau].
Curio is an early member of the far-right party and is on the steering committee of the AfD section of the Steglitz-Zehlendorf district. In 2016, he was elected to the Berlin Chamber of Deputies and took the opportunity to spread his racism.

France: “The Worst Virus Ever… Authority…”

                                                               
  About
COVID-19, authoritarian delusions and the shitty world we live in…
The macabre death toll increases day by day, and in the imagination of each person takes place the sensation, at first vague then always a little stronger, of being more and more threatened by the Great Grim Reaper. For hundreds of millions of human beings, this imagining is certainly not new, that of death that can strike anyone, at any time. Just think of the damned of the earth sacrificed daily on the altar of power and profit: those who survive under State bombs, in the midst of endless wars over oil or mineral resources, those who coexist with invisible radioactivity caused by accidents or nuclear waste, those who cross the Sahel or the Mediterranean and are locked up in concentration camps for migrants, those who are reduced to pieces of flesh and bone by the misery and devastation caused by agro-industry and the extraction of raw materials…And even in the lands that we inhabit, in times not very long ago, we have known the terror of butcheries on an industrial scale, bombings, extermination camps… always created by the thirst for power and wealth of States and bosses, always faithfully set up by armies and police.
But no, today we are not talking about those desperate faces that we constantly try to keep away from our eyes and minds, nor about a history that is now past. Terror is beginning to spread in the cradle of the kingdom of commodities and social peace, and it is caused by a virus that can attack anyone – although of course, not everyone will have the same opportunities to cure themselves. And in a world where people are used to lying, where the use of figures and statistics are one of the main means of media manipulation, in a world where truth is constantly hidden, mutilated and transformed by the media, we can only try to put the pieces together, to formulate hypotheses, try to resist this mobilization of minds and ask the question: where are we going?

Spain –News concerning the anarchist comrade Lisa

On March 10 / 2020 , the prison supervisory magistrate decided to reduce Lisa’s freedom of movement as she was “enjoying” semi-liberty (“tercer grado”, i.e. out in the daytime, weekends and other permits) by applying the 100.2, a condition that refuses exits at weekends and during the week unless justified for reasons of work.
This decision is the result of the appeal filed by the prosecutor of the Audiencia Nacional last last November asking for a return to “segundo grado”  (or no chance to get out of prison), appealing to the fact that the comrade had not denied her anticapitalist and anarchist ideology.Lisa’s lawyer appealed

Athens,Greece : Emergency open-air assembly following eviction of Gini building in politexneio university Mesologgiou Str (monument of Alexis), today 15/3/20 @ 3pm exarxeia

Emergency open-air assembly following eviction of Gini

Mesologgiou Str (monument of Alexis), today @ 3pm

This morning, under the pretext of the coronovirus, cops invaded Polytechnio and evicted dozens of migrants living there, including little kids. They marched them out in front of the cameras and took them to the migrant detention centre of petrou ralli, bringing an end to their occupation of Gini.
The coronovirus is rapidly being used as an opportunity to extend state control in many countries around the world. From quarantines, to attacks on migrants, to the severe curtailment of the already minimal freedoms of prisoners.
We will gather today to discuss the immediate issue of the cop invasion of Polytechnio and the wider issue of how we respond to the state repression in a time of coronovirus.
This assembly is open. Let’s be punctual & take the precaution of wearing masks…
Assembly of anarchists, migrants, squats, internationalists and solidarians

Athens, Greece: WE ARE ALL COMRADES

On 09/03/20,  State security [plain clothes cops] arrests four comrades in their homes. They are charged under 187A with joining a “terrorist” organisation signed “comrades” [σύντροφοι – male comrades and συντρόφισσες female comrades] and for 54 attacks that have taken place with this signature since 2016.

 

Call to the courts of Evelpidon 14/03 (08:30): 1
Microphonic gathering, Exarchia Square, 12/03 (18:00)
Last night, 11/3/20,  the comrade who was charged with joining and participating in a terrorist organization was transferred due to coronavirus (decongestion of detention facilities for preventive reasons) to A.T. [police station] in Kifissia ,Athens. The comrade states that this is a miserable situation, noting that it is so dirty that she can’t even sit, there are no overnight facilities, she’s cold and they don’t allow her parents or lawyers to give her any clothes, they don’t tell her when and if she’ll be taken to GAD [central police headquarters athens] and they don’t let her call anyone other than her parents and lawyers.
Beyond the well-founded case of lack of evidence and prosecution for a
terrorist organization that doesn’t exist, now the comrade is being confronted with yet another State tactic, that of exhaustion before being brought to the interrogator and humiliation after being held in such conditions.
NO ONE IN THE HANDS OF THE STATE
THE HATE IS GROWING

Update info 14 March 2020 from the courts of Athens:
THE FOUR COMRADES HAVE BEEN FREED ON BAIL CONDITIONS:
Not allowed to go near Exarxeia area in Athens, banned from leaving the country, banned from communicating or meeting each other or from participating in any movement action. Obligation to sign at a cop station three times a month.
WE ARE ALL COMRADES

Italy, Lecce : Interruptions… a poster

INTERRUPTIONS …
There is nothing new about social life taking place at a distance. For a long time now people have been persuaded that the best way to communicate and relate is through the use of a device. Prostheses of the human being, the smartphone and its like, have transformed the way of being together, of being informed, learning, communicating, writing and reading.
The next step is the robotization of living, technique pervading every place, every aspect of daily life. An overcoming of nature and the natural in favour of artificial beings and places. Such a scenario needs no social life, it does not need relationships, feelings, thoughts, it only needs order, discipline, regulation, machines. Maybe Dominion is trying to take a step forward and use a health problem, the spread of a virus, to reach generalized regimentation at least, the rest will then take care of itself. Science fiction comes to mind, but States have centuries old instruments to draw on without having to resort to the unknown.
The social distancing imposed by laws prohibiting kisses and hugs and the suppression of most social activities, recalls states of emergency in which the rules of social life are imposed and must be obeyed so as not to run up against getting charged or being arrested. And indeed the establishment of red zones and checkpoints, limitation of freedom of circulation, obligation of home isolation for those coming from areas considered infected controlled by police, but above all the ban on gatherings, i.e. public meetings, is the police management of a health problem. Not surprisingly it is foreseen in the ten rules recommended by the Italian State to avoid the spread of the virus that in case of fever the carabinieri must the first to be contacted. But states of emergency are also the measures provided for in situations of conflict or insurrection, as happened recently in Chile.

France,Toulouse : Incendiary attack on Toulouse Métropole – 13 February 2020

During the night of Wednesday 12 to Thursday 13 February, a series of cars were burnt in Toulouse and the surrounding area. But among these multiple car fires, some of them interest us particularly, because we learn on reading  that three vehicles of Toulouse Métropole went up in flames at around 1am.
« During the night, one or more individuals entered the parking area of a site of Toulouse Métropole in rue Louis Vitet in the Ormeaux sector. With the help of fire-lighters they set fire to three commercial vehicles parked there before fleeing.
The fire-brigade intervened and put out the fire. A police investigation has been opened and entrusted to the brigade for the repression of attacks on departmental security property. »

fire: tonight we had a good laugh
Incendiary attack during the night 10 – 11 February in Toulouse, rue georges labit during the night of 10 to 11 February, our hearts beating faster than usual and our foreheads beaded with sweat, we set fire to 3 nasty little cars. 1 utility vehicle of Engie Ineo, 1 beautiful company car of Engie Ineo and 1 Dalkia utility (EDF).
to put it simply we are bored in this shitty life and want to burn everything
we therefore suggest that you no longer piss yourself off by going on the next demo or gilet jaune action, le grand soir are all grand soirs when you go out with your lighter
there are targets everywhere, human or material, and it’s not very complicated to find something to burn them with
enough to light up the night and warm oneself. lol we are already far away when it burns it’s the sprint that warms us up
we slept well for once
a little thought for all those with fangs and the rebels locked up in one prison or another

Como primer número del año pareciera indispensable pensar adonde estamos paradxs, qué desafíos afrontamos y hacia donde podemos encarar nuestras potencialidades entre la monotonía progresista e hipócrita del Estado y la inspiradora revuelta que siguen encarando lxs rebeldes al otro lado de la cordillera.

As we are still working on the finishing of our next album, we’re happy to
share online an extract of one of our recording sessions. It is the first
five minutes of an instrumental improvisation between two members of our
collective, one, a trained baroque harpsichordist, on keyboards, and the
other on electric guitar and armed with a looper (Boss RC-30) and a drum
machine. Recorded live in one take in Non Serviam’s secret den, on
10/22/2019. The full version of « Improvisation 1. Take 1. » (18m) will be
available as a bonus inside the next album that will be out this year. We
don’t have any kind of label or management or money and are 100% DIY. We
hope you like it, and will share it, because it is the only way for us to
spread our music, thank you.

France: Tearing Down Power is our Lifelong Conspiracy Poster in solidarity with the anarchists currently on trial in Hamburg.

TEARING DOWN POWER IS OUR LIFELONG CONSPIRACY…
Day after day, the silent pact with the state is renewed. Work, consumption, obedience delimit the horizon of the landscape.
A slave’s life, a thousand miles away from any possibility of autonomy.
Dependence on one’s master and the inability to think outside the frameworks established by institutions: insurmountable borders. A thousand and one excuses to avoid confrontation block the journey.
Like the defeatism and fear that kill the rebellious spirit and give substance to resignation. But really, it’s useless?
We are enraged! Because the state is built and maintained upon the blood and mutilation of war, on the massacre of the insurgents, the crushing of our interior, the devastation of the planet.

Brazil: Doxxing action against Oliver Fontana by ‘Cells of Opposition to the System’ – EN/ES/PT

To all
We take responsibility for a doxxing action against OLIVER FONTANA, a lawyer in São Paulo, Brazil. Data in the links below:
https://pastebin.com/VrNwMu4A
https://hastebin.com/abiwirobus.sql
https://www.pastefs.com/pid/182606
The reason why this individual was our target is because he practiced physical and psychological torture on his ex-wife and 4 minor children. The case was reported in 2014 on the ‘Fantastico’ program of the reactionary channel ‘Red Globo de Televisión de Brasil’. Link to the news:
http://g1.globo.com/fantastico/noticia/2014/10/brasileiro-e-americana-se-enfrentam-na-justica-pela-guarda-de-4-filhos.html
OLIVER FONTANA is a member of the multimillion-dollar Fontana family, owner of BRF Brasil Foods, one of the world’s largest companies in the mass murder of animals (it produces meat and meat products under the Sadia, Perdigão and Qualy brands). He hides behind the image of the “Buddhist pacifist” and has no punishment for buying the Brazilian judiciary with the fortune of his family. But our collective is not for sale, so we present this male asshole in tribute to the International Day of Struggle for Women on March 8.
And here, a warning to all machos, misogynists, LGBTQphobes, racists, xenophobes and fascists: From now on, any one of you will be the target of retaliation from our collectives if you do not stop your attacks against socially vulnerable groups., , , , , , , ,

Comments Off on Italy : ABOUT A SENTENCE AND SOMETHING MORE, a text by anarchist comrade Marco Bisesti from the prison of Alessandria

Italy : ABOUT A SENTENCE AND SOMETHING MORE, a text by anarchist comrade Marco Bisesti from the prison of Alessandria

ABOUT A SENTENCE AND SOMETHING MORE
I don’t deny a certain monomania. I have often had to deal with repression. I have undergone it, faced it, badly tried to understand something of it. I wrote about it for years in magazines, if anything because it concerned me and other comrades personally. Ironically, I find myself doing the same thing now for some years, but as a prisoner and along with others in the same condition, concerning the investigation that led to my arrest and that of various other comrades, with five of us being sentenced. I’d happily do without being the centre of attention, but I want to keep all the comrades informed. I want it because a trial is the culmination of various experiences that it’s good to discuss again at times in order not to let them fall to the level of futile opinionism.
In the so called “Scripta Manent” trial all sorts of things were put together. In a year and a half of court hearings – not to mention the amount of documents submitted – personal biographies were obviously dealt with regarding the accused and not only – there were historical-cop digressions on anarchy, discussion of previous judicial proceedings against anarchists, armed practices – past and present – publishing and street experiences…A sometimes inextricable tangle, a judge opens in the premise of the sentence motivations report. It is already good news to know that anarchy is incomprehensible to women and men of law. But let’s see what they write at the end of the first grade trial. [Everything in inverted comas (“”) is taken from the sentence motivations report].
First of all the FAI. In order to describe it in the sentence, they have recourse to set theory. There is a smaller set that responds to the canons of an actual subversive-terrorist association with a stable structure, lasting in time, which “stands above the persons and groups that are part of it”. This is the “FAI-association”. Then there is a bigger set that contains the former. The bigger set is the way the FAI-association wants to present itself to the public, i.e. as an instrument that exists only in the moment of action, capable of communicating through claims and with no direct knowledge. It has therefore characteristics that it is possible to find in various communiques signed FAI, from its origin up to the present day, as well as in the declarations and discussions by comrades about it. Allegedly it contains, besides the FAI-association, also the various FAI cells “authorized by the creators of the acronym to use it, but which are not part of the FAI structure”. This set is what the judge calls the “FAI method”, considering it a mask used by the association with the sole aim of protecting itself from repression.
This is because the FAI-method, unlike the FAI-association, doesn’t correspond to the canons of article 270bis of the law. Allegedly the association made fun of cops and simple-minded comrades with this mask, partly to protect itself, partly to exploit the actions of unaware “lone wolves”, which never hurts.

Samone di Guiglia (Modena), Italy – Eviction of an anarchist squat and arrests

01/03/2020 Samone di Guiglia (Modena) – Eviction of an anarchist squat and arrests
Frome the regime media we learn that on 28th February a farmhouse was occupied in Samone di Guiglia, in the province of Modena. As soon as the forces of order arrived, some squatters went up the roof to resist. Yesterday, following clashes with the cops, 11 people were arrested and the house was evicted.
02/03/2020 on the eviction in Samone – Appointments and updates
Tomorrow [Tuesday 3rd March 2020] arrests will be confirmed. The investigating judge has demanded aggravating circumstances relating to the charge of resistance.
TODAY’S APPOINTMENT [Monday 2nd March]: at 3:30pm at Ligera di Modena, via Pomposa 8, in order to go all together outside the prison and try to greet our comrades
