Chile: Anarchists Claim Responsibility for Explosive Attack Against Police Station in Santiago

We claim the explosive attack carried out on December 24, 2020 at the facilities of the 21st Commissariat of Central Station with a load composed of more than ½ kilo of dynamite and ANFO, arranged inside a reinforced tube and a mechanical activation system.
With this, we seek its effectiveness and the greatest possible damage to the police infrastructure, and even to take the life of a uniformed henchman. We make it clear that our attack does not seek to harm passersby, for this we take all the necessary security measures for this action.
We take on the constant changes that the movement has had from October 18 onwards. The streets no longer burn unrestrictedly. We are not nostalgic for a particular moment, we believe in the constant attack, in raising and perfecting our shots. As all change is transversal, we are not naïve and we know that the police have improved [the effectiveness of their methods], that social control and surveillance has intensified, that they seek to demobilize and quell any outbreak of revolt through fear of the pandemic and the consequences of the October actions (repression, persecution, prison).

Greetings from ABC-Belarus for the New Year,and Update on imprisoned anarchists December 25/12/20

Today is the last day of this year, which was almost a fateful day for many Belarusians, and anarchists are no exception. In terms of the scale of repression, the year surpassed even 2010, although this time we were not the most repressed group, because the persecution affected a lot of people. Some of our comrades are in prison, some have been forced to leave the country, and some take the possible repression with fatalism.
The ABC-Belarus has tried to keep activists confident that they will not be left alone if they encounter problems. We are grateful to all those who collected parcels, searched for people in courts and prisons, held solidarity actions, transferred money to us, wrote letters to prisoners, met forced migrants in a foreign land and offered them a safe place to stay.
It’s entirely possible that we overlooked someone, somewhere we didn’t help in time, didn’t get the right information, and didn’t make something important public.
But anti-authoritarian activists in Belarus can always count on our support.
In the New Year, we wish everyone freedom – inside and outside: not to look around in the street, not to be afraid of raids and detentions, not to imagine how you will spend your days in jail, not to abandon your loved ones on the run, to trust those around you, and to openly spread your ideas and practices.
Have a successful fight!
ABC-Belarus

New Year’s Eve noise demo in so-called Montreal 2020 (Canada)

Though there was no public call for a noise demonstration this year in so-called Montreal, around 50 people gathered anyways. We carried on the 10+ year tradition in this region of ringing in the new year alongside our friends and family on the inside. This year we only visited the minimum security federal prison for men in Laval, Quebec – called the Federal Training Centre Minimum.
It’s the prison where we can always see people in the windows and where we know people inside can hear us and see all our fireworks. We banged on pots and pans, yelled greetings, and set off a record number of fireworks.

Acts Against Goliaths (Philadelphia ,USA)

December 27, 2020
Carpet tacks spread in the police headquarters’ parking lot before a demonstration. More tacks dispersed at the local Amazon warehouse’s truck entrance. One valve stem cut on an Amazon truck’s tire. Two Amazon van tires slashed. Fiber optic cables cut where they hung low on three telephone poles in more affluent neighborhoods.
Small but unceasing acts against so many Goliaths. We hope to put a sling in many more hands while hunting for low-hanging fruit that might actual nourish our revolt.
The spectacle of the spell-out on the Regional Rail train is hardly worth mentioning without documentation, but our word is all we have. Those straight letters reading NO MORE PRESIDENTS taking up half the clean car in the earliest hours of somebody’s election day blazed bold in black and chrome. Maybe CLIP or Septa Police have the flicks to share from this earlier act. Either it ran and shared the message or was taken out of commission for cleaning.

Communique from Anarchist Prisoners Juan Aliste & Marcelo Villarroel( Chile )

With fraternal subversive affection, we salute all those who walk in the same path of struggle, for total liberation and the destruction of carceral society.
From vibrant love in war, we embrace all those who for years have accompanied us, day in and day out, in resistance to confinement and against all forms of control and punishment. We wholly assume each challenge brought daily in combat, since the day we decided to engage in conflict against the world of power and authority.
It has been decades of struggle without pause nor comfort, without abandoning the always present subversive memory of resistance. We raise the legacy of our dead, our prisoners, and those on the run, who have not ceased to contribute to the conflict. From their different temporal locations, the persistence of the struggle has been constant.

Cremona, Italy – Amazon Locker vandalised

This report in a local newspaper has been brought to our attention…
In the night between 23rd and 24th December the Amazon Locker display in via Bergamo in Cremona was smashed, putting it out of use. On the structure had been written “You trade life, but aren’t you dead?”
The Locker functions as a self-service point for orders and product collection, which therefore could not happen: all paralyzed by the faults generated.

Left and right, the same shit.
Fire to the police.
From the press: « CCTV videos show that Molotov cocktails were thrown against a police health Centre ». According to sources close to the investigation, firefighters arrived at midnight in the Martín García sector after a fire had been reported at the entrance to the Centre for addiction control. The firefighters’ report states that upon their arrival they « found that the police health Centre, dependent on the Ministry of the Interior, had been struck by fire ».

Hundreds of parcels blocked at the warehouse after the arson of 27 delivery vehicles in Gironde

The Warning group, home delivery specialist for major French brands, lost much of its fleet of vans last night. Criminals opened them with a grinder and set fire to them before making their escape. The carrier, which provides 7-day deliveries for Amazon, has already ordered new vehicles.
Every van of the Warning company currently provides an average of 120 deliveries each day. 27 carbonized vehicles, more than 3,200 parcels may not reach their recipient on Thursday for Christmas Eve.

« We called on fellow service providers to ensure a maximum of deliveries and our client, the Amazon group, that these vehicles were dedicated for, was also able to turn to other carriers. »
Quentin Bonnac, general manager of the Warning group, specifies however.
Last night at around 2am firefighters were called for this fire in the car park rented by the company in Ambarès-et-Lagrave, near Bordeaux.

« The perpetrators entered the vehicles by opening them using disk cutters then set fire to them. Their intention was probably to find goods awaiting delivery » the carrier suggests, adding « no theft could be committed, as the vehicles are systematically emptied every evening and loaded at the start of each round. »

The struggle against the flames went on for nearly two hours with around 30 firefighters mobilized to prevent spreading to heavy trucks parked nearby. The carrier, which ensures deliveries 7 days a week for Amazon, has already ordered new vehicles. While waiting to receive them the drivers went to another company site in Nantes to pick up available vans in order to resume their rounds on Saturday.

An unexpected noisy demo went through the city streets of Saronno on December 19th.

WE WOKE UP ONE FINE MORNING AND REALIZED WE WERE COMPLETELY HELPLESS
Helpless in relation to health
Lombardy has been hit to a maximum after decades of cuts to the public health service in favour of the private one. The whole national health system, above all that of Lombardy, considered its flagship, has collapsed due to lack of staff and instruments. It was a damaging move to centralize the health service and dismantle local services. We know something about it in Saronno too: for years the town hospital has been run by the hospital of Busto, which it belongs to, and its future remains uncertain.
Helpless in relation to safety
For years they’ve been bombarding us with the lie of safety, all smoke and mirrors.  Meantime they have increased the number of police, even during the present pandemic when funds were needed for quite other things. In this climate of growing social tension the State committed an unprecedented massacre: last March fourteen prisoners were killed in the jail of Modena. For months the media and also the Police have been talking about a collective overdose. Bullshit! Fourteen prisoners were murdered, we don’t need any official truth, you’d have to be blind not to see it.

21st December 2020
We receive and spread:
At the end of November five people locked up in the prison of Ascoli wrote a report to the Prosecutor’s Office of Ancona. In this act, with great courage, they reported what really happened in the prisons of Modena and Ascoli concerning the beatings, the gunshots and the death of Salvatore Piscitelli following the revolts in March.
On December 10 they were transferred to the prison of Modena. The very decision for this transfer immediately looked like a strong intimidation in the eyes of those who, from March, be they prisoners’ relatives or people in solidarity unknown to one another, had never believed the narrative of “death due to overdose”. The conditions of detention in which the 5 boys were held in Modena were equally intimidating: in (sanitary) isolation, with a ban on meeting one another, in bare cells with broken windows, no possibility of buying anything or receiving money in their accounts, with no clothes of their own and when they asked for blankets these were delivered wet.
A heterogeneous network of solidarity was immediately put into action outside by relatives and those in solidarity. The solidarity moved on several fronts: legal support, greetings outside the prison walls, letters, emails putting pressure on the prison director, appeals to regional and national guarantors. 9 months after the massacre that took place in the prison of Modena various newspapers reported the events, or were forced to, given the strength of 5 prisoners’ voices and the determination of the relatives and people in solidarity supporting them.

Comments Off on Call for financial support – Solidarity Fund for imprisoned and persecuted revolutionaries from Greece

Call for financial support – Solidarity Fund for imprisoned and persecuted revolutionaries from Greece

December 2020
Solidarity fund for imprisoned and persecuted militants is a structure from Greece, which for the past 10 years has been actively organizing the political, ethical and material support of imprisoned and persecuted revolutionaries. Due to the immense amount of money we have to collect and send each month to the imprisoned comrades in order to cover their needs inside the prisons, and thus the tough financial situation we’re facing, we decided to use the firefund platform.

“During this crucial period of time for all of us, regarding both the spreading of the virus and the repulsive mechanisms that the state manages to impose using the severity of dealing with the pandemic and the assurance of public health as an excuse, it is again extremely difficult to secure the resources to support the material needs of the ones within the walls. Perhaps it is more difficult than ever. We recognize solidarity to our imprisoned comrades as a mean of the struggle against the state’s repression and we aim at the continuance of the structure’s goals through overcoming the obstacles of the state. The slogan “no one left alone in the hands of the state” is becoming more crucial and tangible these days than ever. We urge you to defend it once again in practice. Factual solidarity will again be our weapon.”
The link of our campaign is this: https://www.firefund.net/solidarfund

Firefund is an online crowdsourcing platform, run by activists, in order to fund radical causes. You can donate safely either by using credit card or with cryptocurrency (ether). Also if you want you can choose to contribute an amount to the team that administrates the platform.

The contribution of each and every one who wants to help our cause is essential. While we also believe that it’s rather important to forward this initiative to anyone with whom we may not have contact with. To any comrade/collective who stand with solidarity against the oppression.

Comrade Vangelis Stathopoulos has been in pre-trial detention in the prison of Larissa for 13 months on absolutely no evidence.
On 2/12, after the prisoners exerted pressure to be tested for the covid 19 virus he resulted positive and is now in quarantine along with the other 60 prisoners with a positive result, all  stacked in the same cell. The comrade’s health is in danger as he belongs to a vulnerable group.
The State management of prisons is criminal. There is no health care for prisoners. As a sign of solidarity with our comrade, banners were raised, flyers were thrown, slogans and stencils were written on the walls of the city neighbourhoods.

December 2020

We are some of the prisoners detained in the AS3 women’s section of the prison of Vigevano and want to tell you how our daily life has been upturned by Covid. We too have been subjected to anti-contagion measures since last March, but the situation took a turn for the worse ten days ago when cases of contagion were discovered in the common section of the female wing. We only became aware of this when the prisoners working in the kitchen were locked up and put in quarantine which was impossible to hide as only packed lunches are now being handed out, exposing everything that is going on.
Apart from repeatedly telling us to stay calm and not worry, nothing has been communicated to formally inform us about the situation and we are still finding it hard to know the number of people affected by the virus and what measures have been taken. The only thing we do know is that it used to be an open section and now the companions of the main section are locked in their cells and sociality has been suspended. All the work and activities they undertook is now being done by prisoners of the AS. The only precaution towards us is that we have our temperature taken, when they remember.

Chile: 10 years after the massacre of San Miguel – Memory and tales of struggle 
If prison walls could talk they would tell the experiences of those who were (and are) locked up behind them; perhaps they would tell us many stories where the poor are the protagonists, or perhaps they would tell us of the immense yearning for freedom that fills the hearts of those locked up in the dungeons and the cells.
Unfortunately prison walls are silent witnesses of the experiences of the people inside them. It is therefore a precise responsibility of each of us, kidnapped by the State, and of whoever wants to put an end to the present system of terror to tell what happens inside these places. The history of the prisoners is our history and cannot be lost.
Sadness reigns in prison, is its lady and mistress and dominates the lives of those who end up in this gloomy place. Not only does the prison of San Miguel contain stories full of pain, it has also had many experiences of resistance and struggle.

Athens,Greece: Claim of an incendiary attack against Hertz by “December Nights” (6.12.20) EL/EN/IT/DE/FR

Act for freedom now! received: in Italian and translated to English:

During this past year, no matter how many things have changed, one has remained as before: the benediction of Chrisochoidis [Ministry for the protection of citizens] and Koulis [nickname given to prime minister, Mitsotakis] to all the abominations of the police. Néa Dimokratía has announced that the police will be in the frontline in bringing about their politic. It would seem that the government has given them total control in the city management. The new normal framework is made up of police units, checks, fines, harassment and beatings.

This is the situation we are living in each day. The paradox is that almost everyone considers this normal. The growing repression, especially over these days, makes us even more angry. Seeing how the cops are behaving we remember even more intensely that the same scum, with the same State responsibility, killed our young comrade 12 years ago.

However, if we are spontaneously angry at the behaviour of the police, they are not the only ones responsible. The responsibility also falls on the shoulders of all those who support and facilitate the disgrace they call work. Hertz has worked with the Greek police over recent months, supplying them with vehicles. Vehicles with which the cops can control more places and travel through cities more easily to intimidate and arrest anyone they don’t like faster.

As a result of these reflections, in the early morning of December 6th [2020], the day after the murder of Alexandros Grigoropoulos by the cop Korkoneas and his  accomplice Saraliotis, we set fire to a Hertz vehicle, in viale Syggrou.

A small tribute to the memory of Alexandros and all the dead comrades. A minimal response to the existence of the cops and the State. A small breath of freedom in the suffocating grip of the metropolis.

AGAINST EVERY FORM OF OPPRESSION

LET US NOT GET USED TO REPRESSION

IT: Rivendicazione di un attacco incendiario contro Hertz da parte delle “Notti di Dicembre” (Atene, Grecia, 06.12.2020)

Durante quest’ultimo anno, non importa quante cose siano cambiate nel frattempo, una è rimasta immutata: la benedizione di Chrisochoidis [Ministro per la protezione dei cittadini] e Koulis [soprannome dato al primo ministro, Mitsotakis] a tutte le porcherie dei poliziotti. Néa Dimokratía ha detto che la polizia sarà in prima linea nell’attuazione della loro politica. Sembra che il governo abbia ceduto loro il controllo totale nella gestione delle città. Il nuovo quadro abituale è costituito da unità di polizia, controlli, multe, vessazioni e percosse. Questa è la situazione in cui viviamo ogni giorno. Il paradosso è che quasi tutti considerano ciò come normale. La crescente repressione, soprattutto in questi giorni, ci mette ancora di più in collera. Vedendo come si comportano gli sbirri, ricordiamo ancora più intensamente che 12 anni fa, la stessa feccia, con la stessa responsabilità statale, ha ucciso un nostro giovane compagno.

Tuttavia, se siamo spontaneamente in collera per il comportamento della polizia, questi non sono gli unici responsabili. La responsabilità ricade anche sulle spalle di tutti coloro che sostengono e facilitano questa vergogna che chiamano lavoro. Negli ultimi mesi, Hertz ha lavorato con la polizia greca, fornendo dei veicoli. Automezzi con i quali gli sbirri possono controllare più luoghi e viaggiare più facilmente attraverso le città, per intimidire e arrestare più rapidamente chiunque non sia di loro gradimento.

A seguito di queste riflessioni, nelle prime ore della mattina del 6 dicembre [2020], giorno dell’assassinio di Alexandros Grigoropoulos da parte dello sbirro Korkoneas e del suo complice Saraliotis, abbiamo dato alle fiamme un veicolo di Hertz, in viale Syggrou. Un piccolo omaggio alla memoria di Alexandros e di tutti i compagni morti. Una risposta minima all’esistenza degli sbirri e dello Stato. Un piccolo soffio di libertà nella morsa soffocante della metropoli.

The trial against five anarchists arrested in Italy in the ambit of the umpteenth repressive operation, Bialystock, began on December 14. The comrades were arrested on June 12 at the request of the Italian government with the collaboration of France and Spain, in the midst of a major campaign against the anarchist movement.
The Italian State is prosecuting hundreds of anarchists in trials that have been going on since September. The Bialystock operation has had a very strong echo in Saint-Etienne because our comrade Roberto was arrested by the SDAT (Antiterrorism Sub-direction) and is being held in the prison of Fresnes (Paris) before being handed over to the Italian authorities.
