Montreal,Canada:Responsibility Claim for an Incendiary Attack Against Migrant Prison Construction Company

Anonymous submission to MTL Counter-info
By accepting to be the general contractor for the new Laval migrant detention center, Tisseur Inc. made a grave mistake. On the night of October 26th we decided to make our contribution to the struggle against the system of borders and prisons in all its forms. We set fire to a truck on the banks of the Lachine Canal, on the site of another Tisseur project. We’re not done.

Ukraine : In Vishnyvoe (Kiev) anarchists attack police in memory of Mikhail Zhlobitsky

On the night of 31 October 2019, we, the anarchists of Kyiv, attacked a police station in the town of Vishnyovoe, Kyiv region (address: 22 Balukova Street). Having found a hidden approach to the parking lot, we used Molotovs to destroy police vehicles.
The police are an instrument of violence in the hands of the State. We can hear that the Ukrainian police have become “better” since the reform. When drunk policemen killed a 5-year-old child in Pereyaslav-Khemnitsky on 3 June 2019, they showed us what all these reforms cost. We do not need “improved police”, but a new system: direct people’s self-governance and real control of the people over the resources and economy of the country. The order must be ensured by the structures accountable to the self-government bodies. The police in their present form are executioners at the service of robbers and oppressors. It should be abolished as an institution.

Turin, Italy: A text from Amma in “Le Vallette” prison (October 9th, 2019)

Translated by act for freedom now!
———————————————————-
We are sharing this text written by Amma, imprisoned on 20th September 2019, along with Patrick and Uzzo, on charges of aggravated violence and resistance to public official, damage, spraying, for taking part in a demo on 9th February in Turin in solidarity with Asilo Occupato following its eviction and with those arrested during “Operation Scintilla”, and against the gentrification and militarization of the Aurora neighbourhood.
Amma wants to divulge and circulate among comrades face to face, via email and through publication in websites, more detailed information on what he’s going through in “Le Vallette” prison, the prison conditions and the screws’ violence during these weeks of incarceration.
Communication with Amma is difficult and the information we manage to get is incomplete. Many of his letters have been held, and so far the many telegrams we sent have never reached him. Outgoing letters have arrived in no particular order, over two weeks after being posted. Visits with his mother were granted three weeks after the arrest and we are still waiting for the response to a comrade’s request for visits. A request for house arrest has been rejected and we are waiting for the reasons to be made known. Continue Reading →

Comments Off on Athens Greece : Call for Solidarity October 30th till November 1st to the Insurrection in Chile

Athens Greece : Call for Solidarity October 30th till November 1st to the Insurrection in Chile

From the 19th of October, the Chilean stat has been overrun by thousands of insurrectionary peoples who have occupied the streets and squares of the country. The mass demonstrations, originally due to the raising of ticket prices for public transport, developed into a generalised insurrection which sweeps everything in its path.
The first acts of social disobedience began with callings for mass forced entries into and sabotage of public transport, with thousands of high school and university students breaking the protective gates and entering the metro lines, quickly facing state repression.
The images we see form Chile remind us of the insurrectionary metropolitan landscape of Athens, when clashes with police, expropriation and looting of department stores, the vandalism of state and capitalist targets, and the passion for the struggle which flooded our own roads was a reality which clashed with that imposed on us by capitalism.
At this moment, the insurrectionaries of Chile face, on their streets, the whole “range” of state repression, because except for the rifles and tear gas of the police, on Friday night, President Piñera decided to impose a state of emergency on the city of Santiago, sending tanks to its streets and imposing a night-time curfew. It is the first time after the fall of the dictatorship of Pinochet in Chile that the army is taking to the streets to repress demonstrators, whereas, at the moment of writing, there are 7,000 arrested and at least 18 dead (some sources state more), 4 shot by cops, the others run over by military vehicles.

Comments Off on Athens, Greece : DIRECT ACTIONS ATTACKS AND CLASHES WITH THE RIOT COPS (MAT) AT PATISSION STREET IN ATHENS

Athens, Greece : DIRECT ACTIONS ATTACKS AND CLASHES WITH THE RIOT COPS (MAT) AT PATISSION STREET IN ATHENS

For nearly two weeks the oppressed in Chile have seized the streets of the country, carrying out a variety of attacks on repressive units, government structures and businesses. The State’s response to their insurgency, though it has caused dozens of deaths and rape, thousands injured and arrested, cannot stop the fury of the insurgents.
Today, October 30, at 1:00 pm, as part of the International Week of Solidarity for the Chilean INSURRECTION, we broke the FRONT WINDOWS of an ELTA POST OFFICE, a Piraeus bank and the “showcase” of forced prostitution of WOMEN, “XORIATIKO BAKERY”. We blocked traffic with RUBBISH BINS IN FLAMES AS BARRICADES in the two directions of Patision – filling the road with hundreds of fliers – seeking confrontation with the cops. The clash with the State-run garbage lasted for quite some time during which the mat riot cops made their appearance and became some of the fastest runners. Pink is one of our favourite colours. We also hope that the pigs like it as they will be forced to return to the police headquarters like pink prawns.
We used the ASOEE University as a base, just as the Chilean comrades have repeatedly chosen to launch their attacks on police forces. We see academic institutions not as academic asylums but as shelters for all kinds of oppressed, rebellious organisation and a base of aggression. The best way to express solidarity is to take aggressive action. We do not want to go into lengthy analysis upon analysis. Anyway we hear our comrades from afar get organized and attack. We won’t say any more. We let them and their fires talk to us.
For every insurgent soul, dozens of stones on the heads of the cops
FROM GREECE TO CHILE SEND EVERY COP TO INTENSIVE CARE !

[ENG] SOLIDARITY DEMONSTRATION FOR MIGRANTS AND SPACES OF STRUGGLE AGAINST THE STATE AND CAPITALIST DEVELOPMENT
VICTORIA SQUARE NOVEMBER 2, 2019, 12:00
If you are a migrant…
Migrants are undervalued and attacked in all aspects of their lives. They follow the path of migration to escape war, poverty, and sometimes because of a desire for a better life. Wars are fomented by bosses and their states to serve either their political or economic goals – the exploitation of mineral resources, the development of the arms industry, the control of geostrategic locations. A concrete example is the Greek state, which together with its allies is currently participating in aerial combat operations in Afghanistan, while it also took part in the 2003 invasion of Iraq, which continues to this day, and triggered a resurgence of the chaos of war in the Middle East.
As they travel, migrants encounter murderous border regimes of which in recent years states have been tightening the control, closing safe passages and pushing people to even more dangerous routes. They are forced to handover their life savings to networks of people smugglers and risk drowning due to poor weather conditions or inadequate means of transport. There are recorded incidents where border police have attacked, pushed back, or even worse, sunk migrant boats. Even if they make it past this, the hellholes of Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, and Libya await them.

[ENG] WE WILL NOT LIVE UNDER THE COP’S BOOT
The state attacks squats, so as to uproot the communities of struggle and self-organization from their vital social ground. It dispalces migrants into concentration camps, far away from metropolitan neighborhoods, so as to deepen class-racial segregation, to prevent the common life and organization with local fighters and the contact with local struggles. It constantly appropriates social ground to turn it into a desert of commercial activity. It establishes military control in the city so as to terrorize the resistance. So as to crush the coming social revolts. This is the class war that is raging, either under left or right bosses.
However, the world of Community, Freedom and Equality will not yield in the face of state terrorism. It will crush them.
Let’s defend our bricks, let’s appropriate from authority all of its ground, for free life.

Athens, Greece: Update/Report about my arrest as a student / minor following the intervention at Athens radio station 9.84

I announce and report this incident regarding the violence and in general the mistreatment I have experienced as a student, as a reminder of the usual and repetitive behavior of the Greek police against any who struggle against the State. I speak as a fighter and at the same time as a student, and I address every student who opposes the state, fights against it, is imprisoned, or loses their school and neighborhood because they are a migrant. The mistreatment I received was directly related to the fact that the cops had the ability to separate me and keep me alone because of my age.
On Tuesday 1 October, together with a body of about 25 people, we made an intervention at the Gazi Municipal Radio Station “Athens 9.84”, and in consultation with them without any dispute, we played a text about the evictions of squats, and state repression including against migrants. After playing the text on the “air”,  we went out and received an attack by many cops, which resulted in 8 prosecutions.
The cop who took  me did the classic violent assault by the Greek police on me, handcuffed me, and carried me away with rude and sexist comments on my face. Inside the cop car,  whilst handcuffed I was sexually harassed with quite vulgar sexist comments. One of the two put his hand back on my leg trying to touch me and me while the car was running incredibly fast so the risk of me trying to resist was high.

Donbass, Ukraine : Anarchist bomb attack in Donetsk

On the Sunday morning, October 27, 2019, an explosion occurred in the Proletarsky district of Donetsk. The mobile communications tower of the Phoenix operator was blown up. The civilian population was not injured, but the equipment was destroyed. An explosive device was landed under a booth with equipment and triggered remotely. The people who committed the explosion published a video of the action.
They also demonstrated a leaflet explaining their motives: “This was done to draw the attention to the inhuman tortures in the basements of the MGB (Ministery of  State Security of “Donbass People’s Republic”). Abuses and tortures with electric wires in the “people’s” republics has become an everyday normality. The people of Donbass should go to a protest rally against tortures, or the fascist republic will be left without communication. ”
Our comrades from the Combatant-Anarchist resource report that they received anonymous information that this action was performed by anarchists, in memory of the act of Mikhail Zhlobitsky.

Chile: Where are we going? Towards uncertainty and permanent conflictuality!  A few words from and for the October revolt.

Actforfree received by email  in Spanish from comrades in Chile and translated to English :
—————————-
From a certain point onward there is no longer any turning back. That is the point that must be reached.  Franz Kafka
The indomitable protest by secondary students against the increase in the underground train fare and the immediate response of the repression was the propitious context for the social war to appear in all its unequivocal rawness days later.
The dynamic of the conflict was rapid, unpredictable and instinctive. The malaise focused mainly against the underground public transport generalised and started to flare up, become visible, recognise forms of combat, exploding – literally – on every street corner of Santiago. On October 18, 2019 a widespread revolt broke out throughout the capital; barricades and clashes were occurring at any moment, everywhere. Different symbols, structures and infrastructures of power were attacked throughout the whole city, and rapidly, throughout the whole country. Order cracked and transgression flooded the streets, immediately individuals came together and attacked what they had always considered as their chains. There is no planning but spontaneity that knows how to clearly recognize the enemy: the State, capital and their repressive forces. The burned or looted objectives are the best examples: ministries, financial institutions, land predators, large warehouses stocked with merchandise and food, and much more.
Revolutionary violence has been validated and unleashed in the widest areas of the oppressed.
Some detestable theorists or enthusiasts of the lowest “political competence” have noted: Where were the anarchists? Well, the answer is as easy as it is simple: in the street, in the neighbourhoods, in the towns, in the multiform revolt, in the street fighting.
There certainly hasn’t been much time to sit down and write or sketch some ideas, that has simply been impossible throughout these days.

Comments Off on FROM CHILE: AN ANARCHIST LOOK AT THE CONTEXT OF THE REVOLT AND THE REPRESSION

FROM CHILE: AN ANARCHIST LOOK AT THE CONTEXT OF THE REVOLT AND THE REPRESSION

There is a State of emergency currently in Chile, decreed by the right-wing government of Sebastián Piñera as a result of the outbreak of a revolt that exploded on Friday October 18 2019.
This text is born from the need to communicate the situation that currently exists in this territory with comrades in various latitudes of the world.
We are sharing what we consider to be some of the main points to be made known to contribute to understanding the present moment from an anarchist viewpoint.

—–

PRELUDE: THE YOUTH IN STRUGGLE AND THE SPARK THAT LIT THE FIRE
After a week of mass fare evasions of the underground train service, mainly by high school students during the month of October before the price increase in the transport services, multiple episodes of individual and collective disobedience spread through various parts of the city of Santiago that resulted in destruction of infrastructure and clashes with police forces inside and outside underground train stations. On Friday, October 18, the spread of these massive evasions and the level of radicality they reached was a surprise for many and unforeseen by the government which, along with its loyal journalists and social researchers, still can’t explain why these events led to a situation of widespread chaos that is still going on to this day.
ACT ONE: OUTBREAK OF A REVOLT WITHOUT PRECEDENT IN POST-DICTORSHIP CHILE
On Friday, October 18, the revolt radicalized at the moment when clashes with the police and the destruction of capitalist infrastructure took the streets of Santiago city centre. Initiated outside the government palace, actions of street violence quickly spread well into the night in various parts of the city. Faced with a situation of widespread rebellion and diffuse chaos in multiple urban sectors, the police forces were unable to contain the explosion of rage. Since that day this has infected broad sectors of a society that had seemed to be sleeping, tired by various forms of oppression and precariousness of life that originated in the continuity of the neoliberal economic system and from the police State installed in Chile during the recent civil and military dictatorship (1973-1990). These conditions of existence and domination were then strengthened by the centre left and right governments that have alternated in power since the return to democracy.

Two school buses, a mini-bus and a truck and trailer were destroyed by fire Saturday 28 September 2019 at Missillac (Loire-Atlantique) at around 22.00.
The vehicles were parked on a parking lot in the town centre behind the Spar supermarket in rue de l’an 2000.
So far it seems that the fire would have spread from the buses.
The school buses were completely destroyed. The mini-bus and the truck were slightly less affected. […]

« Le mur de la honte » [The wall of shame] : that’s what motorists driving along the port bypass or Marcel-Doret zone have been able to read since Thursday morning on the anti-intrusion wall around the Total petrol station.

Many look away as they go through the roundabout. An inscription in black about four metres long, visible several hundred metres away, appeared during the night.

DESDE CHILE: UNA MIRADA ANÁRQUICA AL CONTEXTO DE REVUELTA Y REPRESIÓN
Actualmente en Chile se vive una situación de Estado de Emergencia decretado por el gobierno derechista de Sebastián Piñera producto del estallido de una revuelta que explotó el día viernes 18 de octubre de 2019.

PRELUDIO: LA JUVENTUD EN LUCHA Y LA CHISPA QUE ENCENDIÓ LA HOGUERA.
Luego de una semana de evasiones masivas al servicio de trenes subterráneos, protagonizadas principalmente por estudiantes secundarios durante el mes de octubre ante el alza del valor en los pasajes del transporte, se propagaron por diversos puntos de la ciudad de Santiago múltiples episodios de desobediencia individual y colectiva que derivaron en destrucción de infraestructura y enfrentamientos con las fuerzas policiales dentro y fuera de las estaciones del tren subterráneo.

Blow up the chessboard, Faire sauter l’échiquier

Blow up the chessboard

The terrifying noise announcing the approach of the fighter planes; the slow hiss of the shells before they explode; the ceaseless crackling of machine guns mounted on jeeps; the walls of houses collapsing under the blast; flames that devour everything; columns of black smoke darkening the sky.
This is the war that Turkish President Erdogan has unleashed on villages and towns in northern Syria, territories under the control of the YPG militias (People’s Protection Units), armed wing of the Party of Democratic Union, and other components of the SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces). More than a war of conquest, this is a war of extermination of Kurdish populations and their allied neighbours. At the strategic level, Erdogan does not hide the fact that he prefers to see a Syria in flames, with his mobs of jihadist and governmental slaughterers, rather than any stability that could lead to the constitution of a Kurdish proto-State on the borders of Turkey.
At the tactical level, this translates into the massive bombing of all structures, both civilian and military, by armed forces composed not only of Turkish soldiers, but also of mercenaries and Islamists trained and armed by this State, ready to sow the same bloodthirsty terror as that during the invasion of Afrin early in 2018. And when the earth is burned, the inhabitants slaughtered or driven out, the Turkish State will send the millions of Syrian refugees who are surviving in camps to settle in these emptied territories, sowing the seeds of future civil wars.

Comments Off on Russia : Interview with Collective Anarchy Today

Russia : Interview with Collective Anarchy Today

Collective Anarchy Today | a2day.net gave answers to the questions that we were asked by comrades from France.
The interview in English is available here: https://a2day.net/anarchy-today/
The interview was prepared for this  event:
Still here. Throwing ourselves into the unbridled adventure of anarchist practice, in the cyclone of free ideas and unregulated action, in a game without prizes, of life without mediations.
Still here. Away from and against ideologies promoting political subjects, against the fogged-up glasses of citizenism, against the imposition of a life suffocated by security, which has transformed existence into habit and obedience.
Still here. Despite the attempts of recuperation and obliteration of the idea of freedom. Despite realisms, moralisms and power’s false critics, who aim to reform domination rather than destroying it.
Still here. As the technological offensive is in the process of renewing and deepening domination, we strive to weave complicities, passionately pursuing the destruction of oppression and exploitation, in the attempt to break through this tedious present.
Still here. Even though technological dependencies distract and numb us from the increasing loss of sensibilities and imagination. Even though virtual relationships try to despoil us of our humanity and capacities to understand our surroundings.
Still here. To claim with love and pride anarchist ideas, in an epoch when integration and repression march hand in hand, increasingly eclipsing the horizons of revolt.
Two days to meet to discuss and deepen anarchist ideas and proposals; to share our books and agitation material, testaments to our revolutionary heritage ; to find new paper sparks, ready to set fire to this present torn between rooted resignation and occasional outbursts of rage.
Two days and an anarchist bookfair, free from commercial or institutional compromises.
Two days drenched in ideas of freedom, far from the old and new herders, far from the old and new herds. Because the possibilities are still open for those striving to combine ideas and practice, between individual tension and social transformation.
These two days will take place in Marseille between the 21st and 22nd of September 2019.
