CHILE: URGENT – ARREST OF ANARCHIST COMRADES FRANCISCO SOLAR AND MÓNICA CABALLERO

Early today, Friday July 24, the prosecution together with the police carried out various raids resulting in the arrest of two comrades, Francisco Solar and Mónica Caballero, accusing them of specific actions with explosive devices.

Mónica Caballero, has been charged, along with Francisco Solar, with the placing of two bombs in the Tánica building, in the commune of Vitacura on February 27of this year. One of them in a garbage can and the other behind a seat, both disactivated by the GOPE.
The arrests were issued by the 11th Court of Guarantee led by the southern metropolitan regional prosecutor, HECTOR BARROS. The comrades will go to detention control today to be formalized by this new offensive against the anarchists.
News in progress, update soon.
NEITHER GUILTY NOR INNOCENT!

Cremona, Italy : Blackout and fires

We learn from the press of the regime that between the end of June and the middle of July 2020
a blackout occurred in Cremona which left much of the city in the dark; in another episode a telephone exchange would have caught fire: some writings against G5 were found near the place of the fire.

Metropolis of Grenoble, France – incendiary attacks on telecommunications relay antennas (May 2020)

Tour sans Venin group
Who to attribute the synchronized attacks on three relay antennas in the Grenoble agglomeration to? The professional keyboard tappers equipped with political labels, are pitifully dithering, undecided between conspirators and exponents of the extreme left. Crass ignorance. These commentators of emptiness, purchased by the merchants of intoxication commonly called news, are formatting with their words phenomena that escape them.
That said, we won’t use the political label machine against ourselves. If we were more inclined to chatter, we’d call back without waiting a minute longer for the conspiratorial extreme left.

FRENTE A LA RECIENTE DETENCIÓN DE LOS/AS COMPAÑEROS/AS MÓNICA CABALLERO Y FRANCISCO SOLAR.
El día de hoy, viernes 24 de julio, se ha llevado a cabo una razzia contra las/os compañeras/os anarquistas Mónica Caballero y Francisco Solar, quienes han sido acusadas/os por distintos ataques explosivos ocurridos en la capital de Santiago de Chile.
La irrupción por parte del GOPE y demases polícias se dio en los domicilios de los/as compañeros/as por la mañana, incluyendo un operativo por artefactos sospechosos en el domicilio de Mónica en Santiago Centro. Hasta la tarde del día de hoy se han confirmado allanamientos contra otras personas, desconocemos los motivos y/o vinculaciones.
Recordemos que los/as compañeros/as no son desconocidos/as para el poder, ni para las diversas iniciativas de lucha subversiva autónoma y antiautoritaria.

Tras ser absueltos/as en el año 2012, viajaron a España y al año siguiente fueron apresados/as, acusados/as y condenados/as por diferentes atentados explosivos ocurridos en aquel país y tras 4 años de cautiverio en diferentes cárceles fueron expulsados en el año 2017 a Chile.

Vince Parente was just recently named interim associate deputy minister at the Ministry of Public Safety. Besides this nomination, he is the assistant director-general for the Montreal region at the Bureau of Correctional Services.

Seattle Revolutionaries Burn Down a Youth Jail Construction Site (USA)

On July 25th, demonstrations were held across the US and around the world in solidarity with the uprisings in Portland, Oregon.
In Seattle, Washington, revolutionaries burned down the buildings at the construction site of a new youth detention center. The windows of the building that houses State Patrol and several other state offices were smashed and road flares and rocks thrown at police.
Nightly street fights have been taking place in Portland for the last six weeks between residents and city police and Border Patrol troops. The Border Patrol troops were sent as a show of Federal force, but have been beaten back by unrelenting resistance and growing forces in the streets.

Arson of 7 Police Cars at SPVM Service Garage (Montreal, Canada)

Anonymous submission to MTL Counter-info
Cops are murderers. We burned their cars. You can too.
We used three incendiary devices: square plastic bottles filled about 3/4 of the way with a mixture of gasoline and motor oil. We used super glue to attach two individually packaged fire cubes (which you can find in camping, hardware, and grocery stores) to the side of each bottle.
At each car, we placed a bottle on its side (cubes facing up), pushed it under the tire of the car, and lit the cube.
We chose devices that would fully ignite about one minute after we placed them under the cars. We wanted to increase our chances of getting away and decrease the chances that the devices would be extinguished preemptively.
For a world without the police and the white supremacist order they defend. Solidarity with Black insurgents and everyone else who fights back.

Comments Off on Athens,Greece: Responsibility claim – Solidarity for squats, attack against LIDL supermarket

Athens,Greece: Responsibility claim – Solidarity for squats, attack against LIDL supermarket

Received on 23/7/20

In the night of July 23rd we spayed slogans in solidarity to the squats Liebig34 and Rigaer94 in Berlin on the LIDL supermarket in Neos Cosmos / Athens. After we destroyed all windows with hammers.

Every eviction has its price. This is a message do all responsibles for the aggressive gentrification of many european cities, which allways goes on with the eviction of squats, the state terror against the radical movement and the rising of rents. We noticed the eviction thread against Liebig34 in Berlin and the attack by so called owners and their companies together with the cops against Rigaer94. With the eviction of Dervenion56 in Exarchia the government of ND continious its operations against the combative and solidarity resistance, which we allways will be – with squats or without.

One of many answers to an evicted squat is the destrucion of a consuming symbol the capitalist system offers to the inmates of the prisons called Metropolis. To support the struggle of our comrades in Berlin we found a german company, but it can be also real estate agencies or luxury cars or tourism.

The LIDL supermarkt chain was targeted allready some time ago in Germany because of its bad working conditions for their employees. This action is a solidarity offer to this aggressive campain against the working contitions in LIDL WORLDWIDE. 8 to 10 hours per day with a fake smile for pity money, sitting in front of hundreds of products, in a cashier, becoming a robot which just counts and counts. Or lifting big weights destroying your back. Why all these? Which is the role of supermarkets ?

Supermarket are big financial mechanisms which seem very innocent to the majority of the people. The truth is, they are not.

Colonilization

Supermarket are colonilizing the economies of local societies in all the earth. All the small markets, grocery stores and other kind of shops are shutting down whenever a new supermarket is opening. There is no need for a new supermarket in most of the areas, its just matter of expanding and absorbing. Also, is reducing the use of local products and producers. Slowly slowly, the residents of an area are becoming workers, mainly women, of this industry, losing all their indepentace (even in liberal terms)

Anti-ecological

The opening of chain supermarkets, local or multinational, is also increasing importing of products. This is happening because the production companies are exploiting people in a cheaper way in other countries, or because they make better offers to a multinational company because of the massive consumation. What is happening at the end is a big consumption of petroil by the ships to transfer products all around the world. The paradox of capitalism, the fact that a product from 2000 miles far is cheaper than the local, is killing faster the nature.

Food Control

All these brings us to the bigger problem. Supermarkets are the greatest tool for multinational food companies to takeover all of our nutrition process.  We eat shit, we don‘t produce anything, we need money to buy everything, we need to work for them for ever to be able to buy them and cure our selves from the sickness their food is creating

Do we smash supermarket?
Yes we do. But we have to know that most of the people will not understand why. So we must do more propaganda against this mechanism. And for sure it is better to smash without people being inside. Our target is to spread fear to the side of the bosses not to the side of the random population. But if somebody break a supermarket with people inside without putting someone in danger, its okay, we can overpass it.

Solidarity to Liebig34 and Rigaer 94
We hit the german interests in solidarity with the resistance in the german controlled territory
Solidarity to Dervenion 56 and all the evicted and the still resisting squats in Greece
Support to the workers that suffer in the food and product industry worldwide

Magnesia volos,Greece: In the early hours of Thursday and Friday 17/07/2020 we attacked the building of the Regional Centre of Magnesia with axe and fire, Vassilis Maggos Presente!

Mpeos AGET and government officials, all the bastards are working together

For years now the city of Volos stinks of melted plastic. The percentage of cancer and cardio-respiratory problems keeps rising. The people of Volos have demanded a stop to the burning of garbage and the degradation of our lives in mass demonstrations and protests.

Local authorities (municipal & regional) not only do not share the citizens’ demands but try by all means to increase profitability for the multinationals to the detriment of society and nature.

On June 13 the authorities using their dogs tried to suppress the movement against the burning/processing of garbage with brutal violence, gases and beatings while already set-up prosecutions followed, non-typical investigations in homes and workplaces. The culmination of their repressive attack was the extreme lynching and torture of our friend and comrade Vassilis Maggos. Following the untimely death of Vassilis, our limits have long been surpassed!
In the early hours of Thursday and Friday 17/07/2020 we attacked the building of the Regional Centre of Magnesia with axe and fire, lighting up a little the dark summer night and disrupting the peace of uniformed -or not- State dogs. It was a sample, a minimal form of
counter-violence against the policies practiced by municipal and regional authorities, a small reminder that we are moving around at night ready for everything!
An answer to police and judicial arbitrariness!

Even if we may never win, we will always fight!

Vassilis Maggos Presente!

Spain: amenaza desalojo puestos tirso molina Madrid

actforfree receved 21/7/20
El pasado domingo 19 de julio, como se venía haciendo desde hace
décadas, los puestos políticos del Rastro han vuelto a colocar de forma
colectiva sus mesas en la plaza de Tirso de Molina en Madrid. A las once de la mañana hemos recibido la visita de unos agentes de la policía municipal, con órdenes de levantar los puestos y sancionarnos si nos negábamos a ello, diciéndonos en primer lugar que carecíamos de licencia y que además el Rastro estaba cerrado por ordenes del Ayuntamiento.
Ante nuestras insistentes peticiones de explicaciones dado que no entendemos por que el Ayuntamiento procede ahora de esta manera solicitándonos unas licencias que saben de sobra que no tenemos han respondido llamando a más refuerzos de policía municipal, mientras trataban inútilmente de excusar, aludiendo a reales decretos, la realidad de esta decisión del equipo de gobierno de Almeida: los puestos políticos molestan en la plaza de Tirso de Molina. Nada han comentado sobre aforos, medidas de seguridad sanitaria, o algo que tuviera que ver con la salud pública como motivo por el que nos impiden montar los puestos: la pandemia es una excusa perfecta para arrebatarnos para siempre nuestro espacio los domingos sin generar demasiada oposición. O eso creen.

Athens, Greece: Incendiary attack to a Ford car dealership by Carmine Night-Flowers

Received 20/7/20
Besieged bodies among the concrete, between the cameras eyes, crossing daily life with careful but daring steps, moved by an ethic forged by negations.
We are folks that woke up from the social lethargy, having as weapon our solidarity to the fighting individuals towards the world. We want to be the crack that will join the others, destroying a system that represents injustice and “deadly injuries”.
So, at the night of 7/7/2020, we chose to plant four incendiary devices to the Ford car dealership of Sfakianakis company, resulting to three burnt-down vehicles and a destroyed showcase. Our target was totally not random, as this specific company equips the state apparatus with vehicles, and also the moment of our attack coincides the uprising in USA, the homeland of Ford.
By that we choose to be the aroma of night-flower that bungs the nostrils of the decay, and we want this smell to break every authoritarian nose, to close every mouth that pukes shit, to cut every hand that points at our bodies full of racism, homophobia and sexism.

Toulouse, France : Down with (bring down) this world! (June 2020)

In May do what you like*. Several cars had their tyres slashed because of what they represent:
– a car belonging to the Municipality of Toulouse;
– a car belonging to a meat distribution company;
– two cars belonging to estate agents;
– a car belonging to EDF [French national electricity company].
A cutter or an awl on the side of the tyre (not on top of it, there are wires there) and the deed is done! (Warning, sometimes several blows are needed and it can be noisy – apparently an awl makes less noise).
Down with (destroy) this world!

Chile: Spreading Ideas Against Power and Their Society

Actforfree received by email: Introduction to Estallido Antisocial / Antisocial Outburst, a new anarchist publication from Chile. Translation:
anarchistsworldwide.noblogs.org

SPREADING IDEAS AGAINST POWER AND THEIR SOCIETY
From autonomous initiative as ungovernable individuals we spread anarchy
without expecting the progress of the “social struggles” that leads to
an illusory future state of “welfare and progress.”
The images and feelings of thousands of people fighting in the streets
of Chile before the COVID-19 pandemic are still fresh in our memories.
Also fresh is the conviction that our lives have been in revolt since
long before October 18, 2019, and that in our wild journey we have
wielded a theoretical and practical arsenal that has long since ceased
to be determined by levels of social and citizen acceptance of violent
protest.
We are no longer lost in the absurd idea of considering any person just
for the fact of living in society and we are always happy that more
people are rebelling against normality by vandalizing buildings state
and corporate, looting or attacking the police. However, this does not
mean that we are willing to let the revolts, our ideas and practices
mingle in the midst of mass discourses, humanitarians or reformists who do not represent us.
This is why we deny all typecasting: we are not the people, we are not a
class, we are not a vanguard, we do not proclaim ourselves part of a
“glorious front line” or any other fictitious social or idealized
category to homogenize individuals in the midst of the revolt.
We rebel against all social norms and impositions, aiming at the
formation of associations that are free and consistent with our essence:
individuals in struggle living the revolt as a continuous present that
forges its own evolution in the destruction of the existent, in constant
conflict with authority and hierarchical ways of relating, and for the
permanent construction of anarchic links of autonomy and horizontality
in the here and now.
Nothing more, but also nothing less.
We open this space of communication and dissemination to connect with
other like-minded people, collectivizing ideas, tensions and proposals
that move us away from comfort and stagnation.
For the permanent tension against the State, power and the society that
gives it life.
Against all forms of authority, we constantly strive to bring Anarchy to
life.

Italy- For Manu, for Juan, for collective self-defence 

The appeal trial against Manu will take place on Wednesday 22nd July at 1pm, at the court in Brescia. Arrested in May 2019, jailed until March 2020 and now under house arrest, on 22nd November Manu was sentenced to 3 years and 2 months for aiding and abetting Juan, who was in hiding.
With a precedent as odd as it is serious, the court of Brescia not only accused him of “procuring the avoidance of a sentence” but also of “aiding and abetting” with the aggravating circumstance of “terrorism” because Juan, being on the run because of a string of sentences mainly linked to the struggle against the TAV in Valsusa, was arrested after being more than two years on the run and was accused of having attacked the premises of the League in Treviso, something that no one – either Juan and even less Manu – could have known about.

Saint-Herblain, France: Against Advertising, There is Only One Solution – Destruction

Against advertising, there is only one solution, destruction: 6 vehicles burned during a visit to JCDecaux in the night of 12 to 13 July 2020 in Saint-Herblain.

It is unbearable to endure more advertising as much as the government propaganda displayed on these same billboards, this visual and environmental pollution should never have existed.
This text must also send a warning to the municipalities. If you refuse to remove the advertising, we will continue to fight against it with our own methods, but you will also suffer the consequences.
Faced with these nuisances, anyone can take action: a hammer, a window breaker or even a stone and a few seconds of your time to help clean up the public space of these advertising billboards.
