Comments Off on ITALY: FROM THE PRISON OF TERNI: PROTEST IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE ANARCHISTS BEPPE AND DAVIDE, EN/IT/FR
THIS LETTER IS CONCEIVED FOR THE BROADEST POSSIBLE DIFFUSION
FROM THE PRISON OF TERNI: PROTEST IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE ANARCHISTS BEPPE AND DAVIDE
Start of a 2-week prison-food strike, from October 19th to November 1st.
We are witnessing a multiple attack on multiple fronts by the State on the practices of solidarity:
Those who express their solidarity with prisoners in struggle are being attacked.
Those who in prison respond to the provocations of the guards and those who receive solidarity for the struggles undertaken are attacked.
Those who have participated in the riots and the protests in the prisons in the recent months are attacked: those riots that in Italy have registered 14 deaths between the prisoners, with reprisals ranging from beatings and disciplinary sanctions to trials with accusations, in some cases, even of devastation and looting.

Comments Off on Italy – Declaration to the court of Bolzano
The border system crushes thousands of people every day. What is happening between Syria and Turkey, between Turkey and Greece, in the Aegean archipelago, at the border between Bosnia and Croatia, in detention camps in Libya and in the Mediterranean Sea confirms that walls and hunting the poor are the face of the present time. While goods travel freely from one end of the planet to the other, human beings are ruthlessly divided into those who can cross borders and those who can’t: between the drowned and the saved, to quote Primo Levi. First an economic order – devastating in its logic of war and increasingly plundering raw materials, ecosystems and food self-sufficiency – lays out the conditions for which millions of women and men are forced to leave the lands where they were born and grew up; then a gigantic apparatus of barbed wire, electronic surveillance and concentration camps is driving this « human waste» to a terrifying obstacle race; those who survive the selection must at this point be so exhausted and frightened as to accept any conditions of life and work in the countries where they arrive. And finally, precisely for this reason, they can be pointed out by institutional and social racism as scapegoats to be blamed for everything.
At the end of 2015, as the Austrian State declared its intention to build up an anti-immigrant barrier at the Brenner, the complaints made by the Italian institutions only concerned the negative repercussions that the wall would have on goods transit. As an emblem of a past that doesn’t go away, the press conference on the project of the barrier was given directly by the Austrian police and everything was presented as a mere «technical solution» for the management of borders. The expression itself − «technical solution» − should make your blood boil.

Comments Off on Hamburg – Fire and flame to the police station 21
On 28.9.2020 we set fire to a group vehicle of the police in front of the police station in Mörkenstraße.
Fire and flames to the police station 21
– Solidarity with the 3 from the park bench!
– Solidarity with Liebigstraße 34!
The intervention of the neighboring fire department could not prevent a total loss.
In the ’10s, police department 21 was rather ineffective in countering rebellious, insurgent activities in its precinct. Several violent gatherings took place in front of the house of the then mayor and current finance minister, Scholz, which is located almost in the immediate vicinity of the station, the house was pelted with paint, a police container parked in front of the house was demolished, and a police bus belonging to the guards was torched.

Comments Off on Chile [Prisiones chilenas] Comunicado del compañero subversivo Pablo Bahamondes Ortiz
Históricamente, la prisión ha sido diseñada para quienes por diversas razones no encajan o no se someten a las lógicas de dominación y explotación que los poderosos de turno ofrecen como la vida que debiésemos vivir.
La prisión es una consecuencia más de nuestra inclaudicable convicción de declararnos enemigos eternos del capital, del Estado y sus lacayos. Los presos políticos somos quienes asumimos con nuestras propias vidas la propagación y la expansión de la insurrección permanente contra la miseria y la destrucción de la humanidad en su totalidad.

Comments Off on The one spectacle that continues despite viruses and lockdowns (Belgium)
While the cultural sector is still debating social distancing restrictions with whatever politician appears to be in charge, one venue keeps on hosting its spectacles in spite of everyone. So we are disgusted to announce to you the upcoming theatrical performance taking place on the 8th and 9th of October 2020 in the Palais de Justice in Brussels (that Moloch built on top of the proletarian Marolles and adored by many authoritarians for its oppressive bombast).
Since it concerns an appeal case there will be no original content, alas! But be prepared for the rerun of unbelievable acts by the magician and prosecutor Malagnini. Watch as he just needs to add one person to another to create the illusion of an organization, while putting one accusation he just came up with on the table to suddenly find yourself faced with a criminal organization. (His previous act where he would demonstrate the existence of a terrorist organization got cancelled after even the managers of the venue thought of it as too far fetched.) Stand in amazement how fireworks in solidarity with locked-up immigrants gets twisted to fit the incredible story of an arson attack against those same people. Be blown of your feet by how the simple fact that there is no proof is, in fact, … the proof. (“Of course, since the modus operandi of the accused is that they remain unidentifiable. A proven hypothesis because we could not identify them. Aha!”) Wait with anguish for the appearance on stage of the magician’s assistant and investigative magistrate Panou. See how she is able (is she though?) to explain that an investigation going out on a fishing expedition to find accusations against persons is not at all proactive (gathering intelligence in view of deeds that didn’t happen yet or are unknown) but indeed reactive (starting from specific acts to identify their authors). (“Yes, your honour, a proactive investigation would have been illegal under the circumstances. But! Somewhere, at some moment, something happened. So! It is a reactive investigation, in hindsight …”)
This is only a small and bitter taste of the infamous show that is already going on in Belgium since 2009 in the police departments and since 2016 in the juridical corridors. A show that distorts years of struggles and combative bounds against deportations, prisons, borders and other institutions of this oppressive society. We know that our individual lives and collective experiences will never fit their narrative, even if the collaborators in the rewriting of this clueless plot are eager to unveil their culprits to the audience.
So we invite you to do as you please on the 8th and 9th of October (the accused will do the same).
Anarchists concerned (more or less) by current events in Brussels, but not exclusively.
P.S. A verdict will be expected in the month following the pitiful event.

On June 12 2019, anarchists Giannis Dimitrakis and Kostas Sakkas are arrested after an attempt to expropriate an ATM supply service in Thessaloniki. An hour later, anarchist Dimitra Syrianou is arrested for the same case.
The struggle course of our 3 comrades, a course of constant movement action and resistance, is marked with the choice of close conflict with the State but also at the cost of the extreme repression suffered for it. Imprisonment, bullet wounds, torture, prison riots, hunger strikes, clandestinity, warrants, again arrests and imprisonments.
On September 16, our 3 comrades are on trial for what they are.
That is, part of our world against the barbaric world of class exploitation,
violence and injustice.

Comments Off on May the fire of revolt burn their world of papers and borders Athens,Greece EN/GR
Most states nowadays like to dress in pacifist clothes, which is of course only a facade. This social order is maintained through wars, the associated production of weapons and border security. Even if in most European realities, the consequences of all of this can easily be ignored, it is precisely there that the biggest arms producers and exporters are to be found. So even if the bombs do not detonate on our doorstep, we are surrounded by their developers, researchers and profiteers.
Millions of people cross the borders every day, despite all the obstacles that this world puts in front of them like barbed wire, money, identity cards, military, surveillance and so on. It is becoming more and more difficult to move undetected and the authorities are developing new technologies to make clandestine movement impossible. The expansion of biometric facial recognition, for example, which identifies and tracks people through cameras linked to image databases.
New developments in technology also supports the fact that warfare and massacring people (because of territorial, religious and economic issues) becomes something abstract. Because pressing a few buttons or operating a joystick creates a greater distance between the killer and the killed and this provokes less ethical conflict.

Comments Off on Camps are for burning… [Poster]Athens,Greece
Poster spread in Athens in Greek & English
Camps are for burning…
Inhabitants of the Moria refugee hell on the Island of Lesbos recently
gave the most honest and firm response to the war that is waged against them by the European states. Arson within the camp caused two nights of fires finally leading to its total destruction. Faced with prison conditions some chose for a direct and non-negotiated attack. In Moria a completely unbearable situation was all these years imposed as normality by those in power. Intimidation was part of its management.
Administrative blackmail was part of its management. Beatings were part of its management. Humiliation was part of its management. Starvation was part of its management. The refugee camp of Moria continuously showed us the uncovered face of the system we are all living in.
Reminding us in harsh ways that people become dispensable once they are declared enemies by domination, unwanted by the ruling logic.
The merchants of misery work around the corner
But in this society the loss of one is the other’s gain. Border control
is key in the organization of a society which is based on exploitation
and oppression. This control needs to be under constant development to retain some effectiveness. But who is doing this, how and where? A good example is an upcoming conference on the 24th till the 26th of November in the Divani Caravel hotel in Athens (www.world-border-congress.com).
National and international politicians, high placed representatives of
different policing institutions, but also business leaders of the
security industry come together to discuss the advancement of the border control complex, of identification and registration, imprisonment and deportation. These are the merchants of misery, building their careers on the backs of imprisoned refugees everywhere, of those hunted and shot against the unwanted. Let us sabotage this gathering and those who participate in it, in all the ways and moments we see fit, using our
creativity and determination as our compass.
Because the fires that were lit in Moria light up our spirits and
inspire our actions.
… Down with all borders!

We sent two parcel bombs to the president of Confindustria Brescia, Giuseppe Pasini and SAPPE of Modena.
We hit the unions of the bosses and their minions. We hit the corporate and prison slaughterers in the first days of the proclamation of the state of emergency. In front of the images of the bodies taken away by military means we understood: Your death, my death.
Capitalism is a rotting corpse: Let’s bury it.
No faith in investigations, but nihilistic revenge against master politicians and minions.
No judgment can stop the Informal Anarchist Federation.
We have not forgotten the action of our brother Mikhail Zhlobitsky. Beyond the generations of virtual alienation, Mikhail is the youth of the world. This action is dedicated to him.

Comments Off on Italy – Issue 5 of the anarchist paper Vetriolo is out – Special mural edition September 2020
Issue 5 of the anarchist paper Vetriolo is coming out in a new mural, online and paper edition. Our decision doesn’t mean a permanent editorial change in respect to the usual long critical, topical and theoretical analyses. Vetriolo will probably go back to its usual format. The choice of a mural edition was made during the months of mass imprisonment imposed by the State with the pretext of the Coronavirus emergency. In recent months we have felt the need for a form of communication that could break the distancing that the authorities want to put between us all. We felt the desire to see our and your «scream» against repression hung on the walls of our cities, all the more so at an important time for the whole of anarchism, in our opinion, represented by the «Scripta Manent» appeal trial and the endless investigations that prosecutors continue to rig against the anarchist movement all over Italy. A mural edition also wants to be an instrument, like the ancient gesture of putting up a poster, in the hands of the rebels who want to escape future authoritarian scenarios. In anticipation, we are presenting our article on the «Scripta Manent» trial. A contribution in view of the next weekend of mobilizations.
The other articles and the mural poster will be out shortly. To request copies and for contacts: email@example.com.

We, Атрад Супраціву (The Resistance group), declare war on the existing fascist government!
We don’t see another option apart from inflicting physical and material damage on all power structures – from district administrations and police stations to direct individual confrontation with Lukashenko’s followers.
We have nothing more to say about the current regime, it’s all obvious to everyone. The only possible sentence it deserves – death!
This night we tried to be with you. We visited some fascist police stations and have made our best to reduce the number of police vehicles that could get to the peaceful demonstrators.
We call upon the people of Belarus to use partisan tactics, that their ancestors are famous for!
Only self-organization, mutual support and direct action together with our resolute will can destroy this fascist infestation and break the yoke of Lukashism.
Together we will win!

Comments Off on Greece: Statement on 5th Trial of Revolutionary Struggle for Attempted Helicopter Escape and Expropriations
The start of the appellate court of the 5th trial of the Revolutionary Struggle is scheduled for Wednesday, September 30. The case of the attempted escape by helicopter from the Korydallos prison that was organized by Pola Roupa in February 2016 and two expropriations of banks, at the Sotiria hospital and the National Bank in Malesina, are being re-tried. At first instance, the comrade was sentenced to 120 years in prison, by merger 65 and Nikos Maziotis to 37, by merger 24, for moral instigation.
The attempted escape of Nikos Maziotis and other detainees, organized in February 2016 by Pola Roupa, is a top action of resistance and solidarity, with rich moral content and high values. It is not only the selfless pursuit of an action that could cost the very life of the comrade who emits powerful symbolism and messages, but also the very way she organized it. Taking the necessary measures to save lives, the means of management when the plan was derailed, the orientation itself are what determine the value of the Revolutionary Struggle and at the same time illuminate the operational gaps between the revolutionaries and their regime persecutors. It reveals the inaccessible borders that separate the armed action of the volunteer fighters with the salaried agents of the state power.
The political choice of the comrade consistently follows the inaccessible path of the revolutionary perspective, the sometimes lonely and sometimes triumphant, but always necessary perspective that with the final victory, sooner or later, oppressed humanity will taste. It characterizes with clarity and revolutionary ethos the very path of the comrade and her organization, of the Revolutionary Struggle. This action was the great companion of a historical journey that did not end in the straits of Daphne, did not disappear in the unequal battle of Monastiraki and was not buried in January 2017. The Revolutionary Struggle was not buried as a political entity, as individuals and as a living prospect in so many episodes of deactivation from state repression and its long arms, both before and after the escape attempt.
The release of Nikos Maziotis was a bet not only comradely, not only valuable. It was also a purely political strategic goal for the annulment of the state repression and the renewal of the revolutionary action of the EA itself. After all, an armed organization would not be truly revolutionary if its unarrested members did not take care of the prisoners. And especially, the Revolutionary Struggle as we know it, as history has recorded it, could not be indifferent to its hostages. At the same time, it was a message to the regime: the war is not over. An action like this cannot be interpreted in isolation from its historical context. In February 2016, the multiple defeats on the battlefields of social and class struggles had sown defeatism and had delivered into despair large sections of society and its struggling sections. It was the time of assimilation, resignation, criminal conspiracy of some with the then government formation. This era leaves strong imprints on today.
The comrade’s action was aimed, among other things, at challenging the regime’s omnipotence, where after the predominance of the memorandum policies, the long-term commitment to the “support” mechanisms and the collapse of the popular resistance, it began to trace the destabilization of the two years 2010-12. This action was an act of war against the bourgeoisie and the state, a response to the assimilation and delusions of the regime that, with the contribution of the Syriza government, believed that it would “act without an opponent.” If the action had been completed, things would have turned out very differently for all aspects of class competition. But history is not written with “if.”
In addition, the composure and the binding observance of the moral rules of the comrade at the moment of the failure of such an ambitious plan that did not remain in the words, are a monument of revolutionary, but also of human integrity. The details of the cancellation of the plan and the role of the ruffian pilot who risked his own life by actually selling services to a beastly system whose only position is that of the consumable, have been written in detail by the comrade herself. She had every opportunity to send the ruffian to rest. She did not do it. And her intention to release people who had no ideological, political and value sympathy as it turned out with Revolutionary Struggle constitutes another aspect of selflessness of the will. As for the specifics, we have nothing to say. What was written was written. The story has been spoken, which is much harsher, much more relentless.
Regarding the expropriations of the banks, actions taken in the context of self-financing of life in illegality and consequently preparatory actions for the chartering of the helicopter and the organization of the escape attempt, the Revolutionary Struggle has long ago pointed out that “there was never an organization.” The expropriation of stores of the predatory mechanism was necessary to raise funds and feed the struggle, a practice that follows a long historical tradition of the revolutionary movements. In the actions against the banks, people were never endangered, people were never instrumentalized for the success of the cause. The purposes and means of Revolutionary Struggle have always been identical.
In view of the appellate court of the 5th trial and having in front of us another appellate court for the case in which Pola Roupa has been sentenced to life imprisonment at first instance, we propose active solidarity. Economics, politics, ethics. The state did not write off the Revolutionary Struggle, nor did it stop targeting our comrades. This was demonstrated in the midst of quarantine with their sudden abduction / transfer and transfer to prisons outside Athens, at a time when demanding struggles were taking place inside prisons to take action against the spread of Covid-19, with comrades playing the leading role. In view of this, solidarity must speak.
We now believe that a great deal of ground has been gained. The opportunistic aspirations and attempts to isolate the comrades with the “prize” of “cinematic hegemony” failed. A current of support has already developed throughout Greece with the participation of several hundred in events, book presentations of the brochure of comrades “for overcoming the state and capital for a federated social organization,” contribution to the circulation of publications, nationwide financial aid etc. This current of solidarity has been in its infancy for the last few months; it will not be long before the time is called for it to spread socially, to act, to claim. The time is approaching when we will be called to push, to mobilize, to organize, and later to be released from prison. In this just struggle, we will not just fight for the liberation of our comrades. We will also fight for the value redefinition of the anarchist movement that does not forget its prisoners, does not forget who stood up paying the price of their political choices, does not forget who mortgaged their own lives for the Social Revolution.
Strength to the members of the Revolutionary Struggle Pola Roupa and Nikos Maziotis
Honor forever to Lambros Fountas
We call for solidarity on Wednesday September 30, 2020 at 9:00 in the courts of Korydallos prison
