Italy: “Prometeo” repressive operation – Update on Natascia and a few words on the reasons given to confirm her precautionary custody in prison (September 2019)

“Trials are set up for anarchists for what anarchists are, enemies of the State”.
A little more than one week ago, a public ordinance of the Milan tribunal was published, which outlined the reasons given during the review that confirmed her precautionary custody while she is awaiting trial. This previously happened with Robert and Beppe, who were also arrested on 21 May as part of a repressive operation called “Prometeo”.
A slew of reasons were subdivided into many paragraphs that were titled, “degree of harmfulness of rudimentary ordnances sent”, “the need for precautionary measures”, “evidence of serious indications of guilt” and the “juridical qualification of the offence in the perspective of some constituent elements, including under the profile of the psychological element”.

London, UK : ‘Prisoner J’ – Still in Prison, Still Being Tortured

Another court hearing took place yesterday (27th Sept) with nothing changed: the medical consensus needed by the court to lock our comrade up in hospital has still not been reached.
She’s been a month inside Pentonville, a male prison, and she’s still there. She’s also not in the medical wing, but in the “general population”.
The lawyer who saw her in person described her condition as worse than ever and in “apparent crisis”. We don’t know if there’s some reason she doesn’t want to be on the medical wing, but everything indicates the prison are treating her as having “behavioral problems” rather than any medical need.

Comments Off on Madrid, Spain: Rotating hungerstrike info + letter from Toni Chavero, anarchist prisoner

Madrid, Spain: Rotating hungerstrike info + letter from Toni Chavero, anarchist prisoner

Hi everywhere, we want to spread this info about the actual rotating hungerstrike in spanish prisons. The horrible situation in spanish prisons, tortures, deads, the basicly nonexistent medical attention,terrible food, bad communication inside/outside, aislation confinement for rebellious prisoners etc. etc. There are thousands of denouncements of this situation in the offices of the European Union Tribunals at least from the last 20 years. No one there cares about this nonexistent human rights in spanish prisons! So the prisoners, with the support of solidarious groups from outside, try to continue the long tradition of struggles against this fascist prisoner system in Spain. So from last September 1st a small group of prisoners started this rotative hungerstrike and Toni Chavero, anarchist comrade actually encaged in the prison of Estremera (Madr.i.p.) wrote this letter:
[Madrid, Spain] Letter from anarchist prisoner Toni Chavero about the rotating hunger strike in spanish prisons
Bunker of Estremera (Prison Madrid VII)
5th September, 2019
Cheers, comrades, I am Toni Chavero. I hope that on the arrival of these letters you will find yourself with strength and courage. We need strength, determination and a firm position. I want to thank you, first of all, for joining these rotating hunger strikes. I have been on strike for five days today, but I didn’t even have to start it, the reprisals came earlier, I have been cut off from communications with three companions, for “reasons of security and good order of the establishment”. Since they lack the arguments or connections that lead to this intervention, they continue to violate our rights and freedoms through the nose, we will see what the court says. Although I know this goes on for a long time, I have set out to recover communications with my colleagues.
The dentist and the oculist don’t even call me. Reprisals or a Hippocratic oath? Or hypocrite?

SOLIDARITY WΟΝ AND WILL WIN! After 25 days of hunger strike, Deniz Resit Pinaroglu is now free

Deniz, who was forced to leave Turkey and seek asylum in Europe for political reasons, was found held in one of Italy’s infamous detention centers at Turin’s CPR. He went on a hunger strike on September 1st, determined to reclaim his freedom at any cost and to bring out in public the wretched conditions in Italy’s modern “exclusion camps”.
His release was brought about by resistance and solidarity. From the early days of the hunger strike and throughout it, the voices of support were coordinated across the four parts of the horizon: from Turkey, Greece, Switzerland and, of course, Italy, where his case began to stir reactions, though not the first act of resistance as hundreds of inmates and comrades have given and continue to give many fights in and out of CPR. Deniz was granted asylum. Once again, as we have experienced it again, the one who has won is solidarity! But the fight continues till abolishing the borders!

Athens,Greece: Update on the trial of imprisoned anarchist comrade Konstantinos Giagztoglou

09/26/2019
On Friday, September 20, 2019, in the special courtroom of the Korydallos prison, the trial against anarchist comrade Konstantinos Giagztoglou began.
CASE SUMMARY
Dinos was arrested in October 2017 in an anti-terrorist ambush when he left an apartment in central Athens, which he rented with false ID to help a persecuted comrade. He was arrested with an order issued by Special Investigator Eutychis Nikopoulos for the case of intercepted letter-bomb packages which were sent to officials of the European economic and political elite in the spring of that year. Since then he has been detained and accused of participating in a “terrorist organization”, as well as construction and dispatch of explosive devices to officials of financial institutions and rating agencies throughout Europe, as well as an attempted murder for the package that injured Loukas Papadimos, the former prime minister of Greece. The comrade has declared from the first moment of his arrest and in an open letter to the anarchist movement, that renting the apartment was a conscious choice in the context of revolutionary solidarity, but does not accept any of the other accusations.
At the same time, the German and French police were called to investigate the package received by the Federal Minister of Finance, Wolfgang Schäuble, which was identified by the security staff of the German ministry in Berlin, and for the package received by the IMF representative for Europe, Franks Jeffrey, which exploded at its headquarters in Paris. The recipients of the remaining 8 packages, identified by the ELTA Anti-Terrorist Detection Center in Kryoneri, in the order indicated in the case file, were the following:

Comments Off on Two Armed Attacks on Police in Chile in Support of Mapuche Struggle

Two Armed Attacks on Police in Chile in Support of Mapuche Struggle

Guerrillas attacked police with firearms in two different sections of the La Araucanía region of Chile during the early hours of Monday 22.9.19. Pamphlets in support of the Mapuche cause were left behind at the scene of one attack.
One of the attacks was carried out at the headquarters of the Carabineros de Ercilla sub-station in the province of Malleco, this being the third attack of this type so far this year in this area.
Guerrillas fired on the building, hitting three shots in one of the police vehicles that was parked in front of the station.
After the attack, no detainees were registered, since police personnel followed the vehicle without obtaining the arrest of the guerrillas. According to corporate media, pamphlets were found there in support of the Mapuche cause.
In addition, a second attack was made on police personnel who were carrying out fixed-point work in forestry operations at La Envidia, on the border between Temuco and Lautaro.
At about 5:00 a.m., an individual in camouflaged clothing fired at the police officers who were at the Mininco Forest property, firing at least four times at the Carabineros.
Incendiary elements were found near the machinery that is in place there.
The Mapuche people have fought for many years to defend their land from the Chilean state, and revolutionary armed struggle is a key element of any successful insurgency.

Athens, Greece: Claim for the incendiary attack on Zografou Police Station

Moving bowed clock-hands walk around the grey metropolises. From grave to grave. From cell to cell. From apathy to apathy. From door to door. Doors also bowed, bent over, condemned to collapse if they don’t see the clock-hands passing by at the right time. And time swallows the clock-hands, like the numbers that they were showing were something unimportant and conventional, like the only important thing was always
just to walk around bowed. Some clock-hands broke off, and, for these ones, each pacified day is one more death for one of their aspects.
That’s why they take their bodies all together and mill around the streets that smother them since their childhood. The enemy is there, inside fortresses that ensure the dominant order and normality. One of these fortresses, the Zografou Police Station, was chosen to be targeted and attacked with incendiary devices at the dawn of this 14th of September.

Capital and the State have a continuity. In their eternal pantheon: property, free enterprise, smooth commercial flow, money that produce more money. Maybe the tactics for the establishment of the aforementioned change, depending on the governmental management, but the strategy remains the same. And all the lackeys that wear the uniforms of law, order and security, are the armed front-line of this complex. They
are a constant wound for our aesthetics and feelings. Therefore, there are always reasons to attack their infrastructures and their bodies.

Comments Off on Athens, Greece: Claim of responsibility for the armed attack against cops in exarchia, char. trikoupi

Athens, Greece: Claim of responsibility for the armed attack against cops in exarchia, char. trikoupi

Today morning 27 sep, around 02:30 the neighbourhood of exarchia was listening the voice of 5 bullets, which came from the street of Char. Trikoupi to attack the military check point of MAT at this street. The results of the armed attack are not clear yet, but we suppose that there were not killed or injured cops.
This is a warning for those who militarized and occupied our neighborhood, since an army is in our neighborhood, so the answer also should  be in an armed way; what we are doing is return the violence that already we have received. The real terrorists are states, not us as a social resistance movement.
Unfortunately, a part of our movement is bringing the resistance to a peaceful way of struggle, which is unacceptable, because in our opinion a pacifist resistance movement is a dead resistance movement, so we think the violence and especially armed violence is necessary against all these attacks that we heve received from the state.

Athens, Greece : A state’s attack at Victoria’s street Market

Today on Wednesday the 25.09 the State has again attacked.This time to little sellers that used to make a flee market in Victoria, Filis after the laiki agoras. An operation of State-Municipality Police, of the private security of the market and Civillians Cops accompanied with different vehicles like a garbage car, Municipality Police vans and an interogation van (waiting in the beginning of the market) went through the market harrasing the street sellers. The cops start checking people appearing with bags of things to sell. They checked their papers, and threw the bags in the trash. In an arrogant way they were even bullying the ones looking either poor or like Migrants to them even though they just carried bags of fruits bought from the ‘legal’ market.
It was the second time that we obseved this action of the State, so this time some sellers were more careful with their goods. They were waiting in the streets to see if they have a chance to sell some things. Meanwhile the cops got compliments by local assholes telling them that they do a great job! They were walking in different groups, security in the beginning followed by cops that were doing the checks together with Civillian cops looking in the bags. We are not sure if they arrested people today but we observed many identity checks and disgusting behaviour of the cops and their friends.

Comments Off on Athens, Greece: Claim for the attacks on New Democracy Offices and Banks

Athens, Greece: Claim for the attacks on New Democracy Offices and Banks

On Sunday September 15, we attacked with stones and hammers:

New Democracy offices in: Painakos street, St. Eleftherios Petridou Street, Ano Glyfada Athanatou Street, Sunny street Marinou Antipa, Brahami street of Aghios Demetriou, Daphne street of Vouliagmeni, Thukididou wet street

The bank branches: National road in Chalandri Zenonos street, National in Byron Formionos street, National road to Alimos Thoukididou street, National road in Glyfada Vouliagmeni street, Piraeus Corfu Street in Kypseli

As long as the new power-holders, their media parrots, the cop-unionists smell the tale of “exile of Exarcheia” and “lawlessness,” we perceive only a symbolism of the pursuit of universal doctrine and law.

More cops, fewer rights, fewer voices calling for and shouting,
disappearing anything and anyone that spoils the showcase of tourism, “investment,” the neoliberal vision of the free movement of goods. And what Exarcheia symbolizes, the uprisings in the city over the last 11 years (though we could go back further) are no good for businesses, they don’t fit into the Airbnb metropolis they are seeking.

But as for them, Exarcheia (and their police occupation) express a symbolism of “fighting lawlessness,” so too for us, they have the function of a symbolism of moments started for our attempts to invade the sky.

Although (most of) us live elsewhere, we have our political roots. In our neighborhoods, in our workplaces, in our schools, in the moving structures we have set up in our living spaces.

The “battle of the exiles” is not for us a “rebellious play ground” but part of a more comprehensive struggle that fights with self-organized unions, anti-fascist neighborhoods, local struggles…

In this symbolism of Exarcheia is all that the power wants to suppress.

And all that we want to disperse.

Occupations and living structures are spaces of struggle and freedom.

You will bleed to get them.

Comrades for the diffusion of Exarcheia

Bourg-Saint-Andéol (Ardèche), France – Another antenna in flames

Text reformulated from the French media
A repeater antenna for the television signal and mobile phones was severely damaged on Saturday 24th August 2019 by a fire that occurred at around 1:30 in so- called Bois du Laoul site in the municipality of Bourg-Saint-Andéol.
It took at least two hours for the fire brigade to put the fire out given the difficulties of intervening at such a great height. Gendarmes called to the spot found clear signs of forced entry into the site around the antenna, leaving little doubt concerning the fire’s deliberate origin. The ‘research brigade’ of the Teil gendarmerie is responsible for this investigation.

Italy: “Scintilla” repressive operation – Silvia has been transferred to house arrest

We learn that on Wednesday September 25th, 2019, following the acceptance of the request for house arrest, Silvia was transferred from the “Le Vallette” prison in Turin to house arrest, with all restrictions. The comrade is the last anarchist to be imprisoned for the “Scintilla” operation of February 7th this year, which involved the arrest of five other people, the eviction of Asilo Occupato in Turin (anarchist squatted building existing since 1995) and some house searches.
The main accusation, according to the documents of the Turin prosecutor’s office, was that of having constituted or participated in a “subversive association” (article 270 of the Italian penal code) and of having carried out some direct actions concerning the fight against the CIE and the CPRs, prisons for migrant people. At the beginning of March, following the re-examination tribunal, the accusation of “subversive association” fell, while still remain some specific accusations (among these, “incitement to commit crimes” for the publication of the brochure “I cieli bruciano”, where are indicated the precise responsibilities of institutions, companies, institutions, etc., in the management and maintenance of CIE and CPRs, and the realization of a direct action against an office of Poste Italiane, at that time linked to the airline Mistral Air, employed in the deportation of migrants). Consequently the other five people in arrests, in the following months, were gradually released from prison.

Hopefully this hearing will put an end to the month ‘Prisoner J’ has spent on remand in a male prison, and this disgusting chapter in the state-sanctioned terrorisation of our comrade.

Email ‘Trans Survival, Trans Defence’ for info: survivaldefence@riseup.net

Or text 07936827321. We’ll send you the time and place on Thurs evening.

Thanks to all who’ve written letters, shared info, attended demos, signed the petition…

Prisoner J will likely still be a prisoner, this time in a locked ward. Let’s extend our ‘prisoner support’ further than this traumatic month of torture in Pentonville, to whatever prison-institution she ends up in, and beyond.

Paris, France: Identify the enemy

Many people talk about the climate, they talk about the weather. Those who want to seem radical criticize the media icons that criticize those who govern.
Many people talk about arriving later this month. There are also those who rediscover the virtues of the people. And who are looking forward to weekly appointments with this famous “people”.
Many people talk.
We thought that the urgency, today as always, is to act. Act in small groups or alone, following our ideas and not the mood of the masses. The urgency of the attack.
Identify the enemy: like yesterday and like tomorrow, states, capital and every authority.
