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. »

Toulouse, France : Incendiary sabotage of Engie Ineo and Dalkia vehicles – 11 February 2020

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

La Rivolta N°5
Compartimos a continuación el número 5 de la publicación editada desde
Buenos Aires, en la constante búsqueda de tensionar nuestra realidad y
poder reforzar el dialogo entre quienes se sientan afines o distantes.
Creemos que la necesidad de mantener tanto esta como las distintas
publicaciones que encaran lxs compañerxs en la región se vuelve
indispensable para expandir nuestras reflexiones, perspectivas y enlazar
posturas que tantas veces se pierden en el mar de opiniones virtuales.
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.
Esperamos estas palabras sigan sin pasar desapercibidas y dejamos un
saludo a quienes nos hacen llegar distintas reflexiones críticas tanto a
la distancia como en el día a día, ya que es ahí donde la publicación se
potencia y crece.

Paris, France: Improvisation 1. Take 1.

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.

Ontario, Canada: Three Railway Sabotage Actions in Solidarity with Land Defenders

It seems worth sharing that we have managed to shut down, (if only for a few to several hours), different rail lines in Southern Ontario using the ol’ copper wire technique. We did this three separate times targeting a junction in Milton, on lines that connect Kitchener-Waterloo to Toronto and Burlington. Using paper maps to follow where lines go, we had fun finding places to act with most impact. We learned more about how this was done following some of the other informative and inspiring posts here on North Shore.
These have been quick, successful, and gleeful ways to contribute to the efforts behind Shut Down Canada. Clandestine sabotages are meaningful tactics to popularize and normalize for many reasons:

Russia: Urgent news about comrade Ilya Romanov

On February 18 and 19, there were rallies in Moscow in solidarity with Ilya Romanov, who, at the moment, is locked up in a penal colony in Mordovia [Eastern European Russia, near Nizhny Novgorod; NdAtt.]. In October 2019, Ilya had a stroke. Since then, he has been locked up in the penal colony hospital, a facility which is not suitable for treating his condition, which is still very critical. Indeed, the comrade is partially paralyzed (apparently half of his body is paralyzed). Ilya still has difficulty speaking, eating and being independent, even in the smallest gestures of everyday life.
Ilya’s family and his lawyers were made aware of the stroke days after it happened, and the neurologist’s visit took place only two and a half weeks afterwards. He is not in any rehabilitation process and all the lawyers’ requests to have him transferred to a suitable hospital have been rejected; for weeks neither his family nor his lawyers were able to meet him or understand the gravity of his situation. It was not until November 28 that one of his lawyers was able to meet Ilya; The lawyer said that Ilya is paralyzed down one half of his body and cannot speak. He urgently needs the help of a speech therapist, as well as other doctors, but he is not allowed any specialist. Ilya is left to himself in a bed on a ward where he is locked up and he has been fed porridge for months.

Alcázar De San Juan (Spanish state): CSOA La Idea attacked and trashed

Since our beginning as a CSOA (self-managed occupied social centre) on 23rd May 2017, we announce with much sadness and resignation, that the collective LA IDEA ceases its activity in the current premises.
In the early morning of last Thursday 5th March, the social center suffered an extremely serious attack for the development of the activities we had been carrying out. The social center has suffered irreparable damage, they have destroyed all the infrastructure we built: windows, doors, solar energy, water tanks, furniture and much more seriously, they have stolen and destroyed all the electrical installation that made it possible to hold events and activities. They have opened the fences that delimit the space and have destroyed all the material that we had, such as cleaning products, refrigerators, stoves, tables, chairs, kitchens, bathrooms, lighting and a long etc…
This situation, has been repeated in the following days during the weekend. Looting, stealing and destruction went on.
With much sacrifice we have only managed to save some objects of sentimental value for us. Continue Reading →

Spain : Update on the situation of the persecuted comrades in Madrid, for the attack on a Bankia ATM

The persecution of anarchist solidarity.
On October 29, 2018 in Madrid, two anarchist companions were detained, in their respective homes, on charges of property damage.
Specifically they are accused of damaging with fire a Bankia ATM on April 11, 2018 in solidarity with the anarchist prisoner Lisa, who was convicted of a bank robbery in Aachen (Germany).
The companions went to court on October 30, 2018 and they were released pending trial. During that year the classification of the offense was as a misdemeanor, however, in November of 2019, after the prosecution appeal, the crime was again classified as normal, giving rise to the possibility that they will be condemned to prison. Currently the investigation has already closed and they are waiting for the prosecution to present the indictment.

Athens, Greece : On Saturday, March 7, 2020, anarchists and antifascists , anti-authoritarians marched through the downtown of Athens in solidarity with the migrants struggle, against all detention centers, against fences and borders. Against war, nationalism and fascism.

VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CxdXKOdCys
Greek vigilante groups in Evros are roaming freely the borders, terrorising and arresting groups of migrants that manage to find a hole through the fence, while in the greek island of Lesbos vigilante groups act like a mob that has set check points at the edges and the centre of Mytilene town (the capital of Lesbos island), verbally abuse any migrants in dinghies that reach the greek shores, attack and terrorize volunteers or NGO workers aiding migrants, smash their cars or violently beat them. Fascists from several european countries have flown to Lesbos island to take part in the mob that attacks anyone not speaking greek, migrants, NGO workers or tourists.
A school for refugee children has also been burnt to the ground by this right wing racist mob. Tourists, volunteers and NGO workers are fleeing Lesbos island because it’s not safe for anyone not speaking greek, except of foreign fascists and nationalists aiding the vigilante mobs.

AFTER 10 YEARS! LAMBROS FOUNTAS LIVES IN THE HEART OF EVERY FIGHTER

”There are some people for whom there should have been mountains with their names written upon them for all time. Tombstones are not tall enough..”
On March 10, 2010, in Athens the anarchist and member of Revolutionary Struggle Lambros Fountas falls dead in an armed clash with the uniformed servants of the state, during a preparatory action of the organization.
Lambros Fountas cannot easily be categorized. He has always been THERE. He fell fighting, as a member of R.S., of an organization that came to question the end of the history of urban guerrilla struggle in Greece in a deafening way. Where the broader radical movement fought with all its force so as not to internalize the imposed defeat of the revolutionary struggle by all means. The burial of the revolutionary perspective. In this repression and media delirium, R.S. with its upgraded operational capability and its anarchist-theoretical elaboration raised the bar for revolutionary organizations.
Lambros died with a gun in his hand, just as he lived: standing up, fighting for a human society of equality and solidarity, without state and exploitation. And for that exactly we will remember the life and death of Lambros everywhere on labour protests, strikes, anti-fascist
actions, in solidarity structures, in clashes with the state’s lapdogs, in guerrilla actions. At this difficult point in history Lambros will always be with us there where the barrier against the march of capitalist barbarism is built, where the dignity of human resistance is standing high, where a new world is shaping.
Lambros will always be with us in the struggles for the Social Revolution, for Anarchy.

… in the hard times you never abandon the city, in the good times you didn’t gain any interests, in the desperate times you didn’t fear anything…

Modena, Italy: ABOUT THE REVOLT AND MASSACRE INSIDE MODENA PRISON

Image result for Modena – Sulla rivolta e il massacro nel carcere di Modena

A revolt broke out today, March 8 2020 in the early afternoon, in St Anna prison in Modena.
The fact was clearly seen from outside as three columns of smoke rose from the wings of the structure, as well as the significant coming and going of guards, and the presence of a police helicopter guarding the area.
Various relatives of the prisoners gathered, those in solidarity and other spectators from the surrounding area, seeing the GOM arriving in antiriot gear and distinctly hearing some shots.
After some attempt at removal by the police, people still gathered in front of the prison, where vans, ambulances and prison minibuses were seen parading back and forth.
At some point, after several requests for news by relatives, the Major of the Prison and an emissary from the prison director came out and told them that during negotiations with the rebels barricaded in the wing they had given them back their mobile phones in order to let them call the their loved ones. So they asked family members to answer the phone and convince them to come out.
Towards the evening, in front of a large antiriot contingent, cops emerged escorting some of the prisoners, striking them while handcuffed; some were on stretchers.
Already around that time some had escorted a bag containing a dead body.
It was possible to talk to some of the prisoners in the wing next to the field during the events, they gave news of transfers and that they would be the last to be transferred from the section, saying that they were being heavily beaten.
80 people have been transferred, apparently to Bologna, Reggio Emilia, Parma, Piacenza and Ascoli by at least four prison buses and other vans.
The media of the regime reconstructed the affair as having started off from the workers’ section then spread throughout the whole prison where the prisoners would have burned mattresses and barricaded themselves in at least one of the structures, and apparently from some video seen taking possession of the armoury.
Three people died during the revolt. Their identity and the exact cause of death has not been released. Another two are in intensive care.
There is talk of serious damage to the structure and the destruction of documents. Important causes of the outbreak of the revolt would be the shutdown of visits and lack of mediators due to THE virus, as well as health safety inside the structure.
Late in the evening there seemed to be rebels barricaded; THE SITUATION IS EVOLVING CONTINUALLY.

Comments Off on Italy : Revolts in numerous prisons – 8 and 9 March 2020

Italy : Revolts in numerous prisons – 8 and 9 March 2020

At this precise moment revolts are taking place in various jails in Italy: Modena, Salerno, Pavia, Opera and San Vittore (Milan), Poggioreale (Naples), Frosinone (near Rome) and also in Vercelli, Palermo, Alessandria (near Turin), Bari and Foggia.
The decree of 8th March (putting 14 provinces in quarantine, the whole of the region of Lombardy and the provinces of Modena, Parma, Piacenza,
Reggio Emilia, Rimini, Pesaro and Urbino, Alessandria, Asti, Novara,
Verbano-Cusio-Ossola, Vercelli, Padua, Tréviso, and Venice) set things off.
The direct, cruel impact of this decree for all the prisoners: suspension of visits at least until the 3rd of April.
For Modena, a fire that started from a burning mattress ravaged part of the  « male » prison in the afternoon, in the sanitary areas. The registration office where the prisoners’ files are kept was also burned. The mutineers took over the common areas up to the reception, which they barricaded themselves behind causing about twenty screws and health personnel to flee. Cops in anti-riot gear then landed, beat up and dislodged them. Certain prisoners had managed to reach the exercise yard on their way to escape. Later in the evening when the penitentiary police came back inside the walls, some were still barricaded.
The prisoners in the « female » section also joined the revolt by fire.
Three prisoners (at least) are dead. Two screws were wounded during their flight.
Fire having sabotaged the machine, about 80 prisoners, male and female, were transferred by bus. People there in solidarity heard « Bologna » being shouted from the bus.
In Pavia, this evening (8 March) the revolt has been going on since 19.30 after prisoners’ visitors came and shouted at the gates against the closure of visiting rooms.

Prisoners set fire to mattresses, some climbed on to the roof, 2 screws were held hostage by some determined prisoners who snatched the keys from them to free dozens more of their prisoner comrades. It seems that the two shits in uniform were freed at around 11pm…

In Frosinone (south of Rome), about one hundred prisoners barricaded themselves in a section of the prison but the police dislodged them. According to the journacops, the prisoners had made out a list of demands, among which visits, and attempted to negotiate with the direction.

A Poggioreale, Naples (in the biggest jail in Italy with over 2,200 prisoners) many prisoners’ families gathered outside the walls and blocked the surrounding traffic to show what was going on inside. Some prisoners hoisted themselves up on to the walls surrounding the exercise yard and about thirty of them climbed on to the roof shouting their rage against the suspension of visits.

In Opera (Milan) over a hundred prisoners ransacked everything within reach. 
In Salerno, where the revolt took place the previous evening, a whole wing of the prison was devastated.
For the moment the news is being given in short bursts, and perhaps tomorrow we will have more…
Because « Fire to the prisons » is not a magic formula but a real practice to sabotage the prison machine…
Solidarity with all the mutineers! Of all the cages, all the prisons, camps, detention centres..
Long live the virus of anarchy !

Greece: Anarchist Abtin Parsa , ΔΗΜΟΣΙΑ ΔΗΛΩΣΗ/PUBLIC STATEMENT/بیانیه عمومی(gr, en, fa)

We are in a war situation, some of us were killed, some of us are in prisons, some of us were pushed to escape and are being hidden and many of us are under a lot of pressure. We should accept that resistance against state and capitalism is not the easy way of life but we have no choice: either we resist together and survive, or the state and capitalism will kill all of us one by one.
After months being under watch, follow and harassment by anti terrorist unit, on February 13, when the oppression did target me and those who have contact with me more than in the past, I did take a political decision to be hidden. I am not in a safe place and no one is in a safe place because in this neo liberal capitalism system, there is no safe place, so being hidden inside 4 walls does not mean you are safe.
In this period of time, there is a historical and political responsibility for the movement to defend the armed resistance. The goal of state repression is first to pacifize and in the end to destroy any kind of resistance, because the state does not want the oppressed to fight back. The state talks about peace but this peace is nothing but monopolizing the violence in the hand of state. The state is trying to make us unable to return the violence, but the oppressed should defend themselves by any means that they understand; otherwise there is no survival.

Pau, France: Damien is back in prison (February 2020)

Anarchist comrade Damien Camélio is in prison. He is imprisoned in Pau prison, to serve a five-month sentence. He was convicted of violence against a police officer, due to an argument that took place in Saint Malo on July 31st, 2017.
Damien did not even know about this conviction: his signatures under the notifications of the date of trial, conviction and summons before the probation magistrate are false…
The comrade is in high spirits.
Solidarity is the attack!
To write to him (Damien reads French and Spanish):
Damien Camélio
n° d’écrou : 28499
Maison d’Arrêt de Pau
14, rue Viard
64000 – Pau (France)
Translator’s note: Damien was arrested at the beginning of 2014 for three attacks signed Groupe d’action directe internationaliste (against an army building in Tarbes, in the Pyrenees, against a prison in the same city and against a church of a sect near the far right, in Pau). He served two years in prison. He was re-arrested in December 2016, for damages (the windows of a supermarket, an employment office, the Chamber of Commerce and a Jaguar dealership), made during a spontaneous demonstration, in April 2016, during the movement against the Loi travail, and served 8 months.

Melbourne, Australia: Action for the Week of Solidarity with Russian Anarchist & Antifascist Prisoners

Twice this week those living and working at the Russian ethnic representative council of Victoria awoke to find their building covered in posters and paint. Nothing particularly unusual for inner city walls in Melbourne, but these were not the usual tags or gig advertisements they are usually faced with and which are often not removed for months at a time.  Instead they were in support of those imprisoned and newly sentenced in the so called Network Conspiracy Case in Russia. These actions were our contribution to the international week of solidarity with our antifa brothers who have been sentenced to up to 18 years in prison for not much more than playing paintball, and this after they were all full on tortured!
