Over a year ago our website and group in vk.com (the most popular social media site in post-USSR countries) were blocked by decision of court, considering information on the website to be extremist. Several weeks ago new round of attack from Ministry of information came. The new group, created after the blocking, was blocked also. At that moment it had around 1450 subscribers. Of cause, we have founded a new one – and certainly it will also be blocked soon:)
Several accounts of a users, that were running the group, were also blocked on territory of Belarus. Apart from that Belarusian government has added to the black list mirrors of the website in other social networks – Tumblr, WordPress, Livejournal and Diaspora. Before that our group in Facebook was blacklisted as well.
And although it is not possible for Belarusian government to block Facebook, Diaspora and Twitter due to some technical decisions made by those social networks, other networks and our mirror on WordPress.com are not available anymore on the territory of Belarusian state: notification about illegal information appears in your browser instead.

Comments Off on Italy – Updates on anarchist prisoner Davide Delogu
From a letter of 9th March 2018 we learn that anarchist comrade Davide Delogu is no longer in solitary confinement. He’s in a unit with other prisoners and in a cell alone. His mail is still under censorship. Books and other material are not being delivered. He sends greetings full of struggle to all.

Comments Off on Italy – Updates on Cello: house arrest refused
An investigating judged refused house arrest in Saronno. So Cello is to remain in prison at Le Vallette. In the coming weeks a new request will be made for house arrest in another city. It also seems that immediate proceedings will be demanded for Cello, which means his trial will begin earlier and separately from the other five. No date has been fixed yet.
Cello tells us he’s doing well and he’s been in a new cell for some days, still alone, with a view on the mountains, still in B block. He goes to the exercise yard in the morning and in the afternoon and has sociality in the evening; he has access to the gym and football pitch. Visits from his family carry on regularly.
He thanks everybody for the mail he gets (telegrams, books, letters, cards). He’s reading a lot so we suggest you send books and magazines with the book form.
Our strength and determination are also his own, the spirit is high!
We give his address and details for money contributions:
C.C. Lorusso e Cutugno

Here follows the statement read out during a TAZ event on the 9th anniversary of TeLOS squat:
Hi all, we steal a few minutes to the celebrations because one of us has been missing for a month now. In the night between 8th and 9th February Cello was arrested on charges of resistance and aggravated bodily harm following the events of last 31st December in Turin: that night a conspicuous group of people went to greet the prisoners outside the prison of Le Vallette, as has been happening for years. Chants and fireworks broke up the monotony of life in prison. That night, during clashes with the police, a woman cop was hit in the face by a bottle.
Besides Cello being arrested, orders of reporting to the police station and of prohibition of residence in Turin were given to 5 comrades.

Comments Off on From France to London : A small gesture in Marseille to send our love and support for her in this moment and to all trans fighters struggling against state and terf repression.
received on 2/4/18
Amid a deafening silence from almost all cis-anarchists in London, the persecution of our comrade the ‘She-Wolf’ continues, with a trial date set for alleged assault on 12-13th April, at Hendon Magistrates court. Meanwhile the actively transphobic elements of leftism and ‘feminism’ – recipients of remarkable empathy from certain corners of the anarchist scene – continue to show their true faces, brandishing more and more interesting new friends: journalists, screws, politicians (including Conservative austerity-merchants), bosses, and of course cops and judges.
At a hearing on a cold morning in February, over 40 supporters attended including comrades from as far away as Bristol, accompanying our friend as she pleaded ‘not guilty’ to the charge of assault (slightly less serious than the aggravated charge of battery which had been threatened). TERFs had promised to demonstrate at the court, but in the end some prominent TERFs advised against attending, and only the shameless and apparently near-friendless Venice Allan showed up, accompanied by two others and a ten year-old child. Crowd-control barriers and a van-load of cops stood idly by. The child looked confused.
In the context of months of persecution and harassment, the blossoming of old and new friendships under grey London skies anticipated the arrival of spring. The occasion reminded us of the connections and capacities we will need to develop to survive the conditions that are hardening around us.
Gatherings in solidarity with comrades are meaningless if this solidarity cannot be developed and used, ultimately, for attack. We are not talking about ‘opposing’ or even physically attacking TERFs. Clearly we do need to think strategically about their presence and influence in ‘radical’ and autonomous contexts, their willingness to mobilise liberalism and its institutions to serve their ends, and the continuum between these two areas of their activity. But our desires far exceed the politics of opposition, and of defending or demanding ‘rights’, representation, visibility etc… There is nothing for us in this world, that destroyed universes outside of cis-hetero statism, and now tries to sell us pacified bubbles of queer or trans life, a glittery version of the same corpse-existence, buttressed by work, destitution, borders and exclusions of all kinds.

Comments Off on Athens, Greece: Tasos Theofilou – Regarding the appeal lodged against the decision of acquittal
Regarding the appeal lodged against the decision of acquittal
“In Athens today, 27th of March 2018, Tuesday 2pm, at the Public Prosecutor’s office at the Supreme Court of Greece, the Deputy Prosecutor at the Supreme Court Ioannis Aggelis called me, the secretary of the Criminal Devision Georgios Sofroniades, and stated that: he lodges an appeal before the Supreme Court of Greece, in accordance with the article 505, par. 2 of the Criminal Procedure Code, against the 2186/2017 (2938/16, 3303/16, 518/17, 565/17, 580/17) acquittal decision of the A’ five-member Felony Appeal Court of Athens, whereof the accused Anastasios Theofilou was declared innocent”.
That’s the beginning of no. 21/2018 appeal statement, with which the prosecutor Mr. Ioannis Aggelis demands the annulment of the decision of the A’ five-member Appeal Court of Athens, which acquitted me of all charges, and my remand to a new trial with different judges.

Comments Off on Greece,Athens: For the anarchist comrade Christos Politis…
Now I get on a carriage, like those that cross my sleep and I escape.
You will meet me again in the fairest poems of the following century.
T.Livaditis, 20 Days Moon
The 11th of March 2018 dawned leaving an unexpected gap in the anarchist scene. The big heart of the anarchist Christos Politis stopped beating filling with sadness not only his relatives and friends but every struggling part of the wider radical movement.
Christos Politis was from an early age one of the most active comrades in the movement. He participated in every struggle of the oppressed. With conviction and consequence he was always present in every demonstration, assembly, event. Always on the frontline in every action. Always in solidarity with the struggles of imprisoned and persecutes comrades, men and women. He fought body and soul for the Cause, for our freedom for Anarchy and Communism.
With his big heart and sincere smile, his spontaneous spirit and great soul, he was giving us every single day the strength to continue the struggle until victory. He was a true fighter, a revolutionary. A friend and a comrade. And most of all, an outstanding and true Human, an integral part of our bastion, who will always walk along our side. We honorably and proudly raise our fists straight up, shouting PRESENT.
We wish you a nice journey comrade. We’ll be seeing you.

Comments Off on Solidarity greetings from anarchist comrade Lisa to the Vienna ABC Days of Solidarity
I send you solidarity and militant greetings for the Giornate della Croce Nera Anarchica a Vienna – [Anarchist Black Cross Solidarity Festival in Vienna 20 – 23 April]. Although these are certainly very difficult and confusing times both inside and outside the prison walls, it is still very important not to lose the courage and determination to face this miserable and unjust world.
Resistance and solidarity against exploitation, domination and oppression are being reduced in all areas of life everywhere. Control and social surveillance are growing day by day to make us human beings more and more predisposed and efficient for the system and daily life is characterized by increasing digitalization and self-alienation, so much so that the few free spaces that still exist are being suppressed even further.
The difference between poverty and wealth continues to be enormous and very obvious and is constantly increasing, especially in the metropolis. While the economic groups and the super rich continue to earn millions and billions and invest in goods and money, also here in Western Europe we have capitalist and democratic propaganda imposed on us, masking the injustice and oppression against all those who are not part of the system or who must not become part of it. Society must be intimidated by debates on the fear about internal and external security and prefers to close itself behind walls, borders and surveillance systems rather than be supportive and free and no longer driven and deceived by politics or the economy. We must be deprived of our self-determination, so that we cannot rebel or organize ourselves against the rulers and the State, and so that the rules and laws of power, money and property that are imposed on us are not touched.
However, there are still thousands of ways to sprinkle grains of sand into the gears of this system and create resistance. Even if for the moment, we are not able to fully express our values, our ideas and our actions of freedom and anarchy, no matter where we are, we can always struggle against power and domination, as well as against those responsible for all the misery. Certainly we will have to deal with the repressive and punitive system of this State, just as all the fighters for resistance and freedom have always had to throughout history, but its walls, its bars or other “security measures” will not succeed in putting a brake on our desire, our conviction and our passion for freedom, justice and the destruction of every form of government and authority.
