Amadeu Casellas: a life story of struggle Amadeu Casellas is a prisoner who has spent more than 25 years in jail due to his participation in dozens of bank robberies, helping with that money to the funding of worker’s struggles in the late 1970’s. None of his activities involved blood crimes. Amadeu has always been a committed and active person, participating in many actions, in the streets as well as in prisons. When he was 14, in 1973, working at a factory, he discovered anarchism. He believed in the armed struggle and in an essential revolution. In 1976 he robbed the Banco Mercantil de Manresa. During the next two and a half years he robbed more than 50 other banks. In 1979 he enters prison and is welcomed with a brutal beating. During all the time he has spent jailed, he has undertaken many hunger strikes and other types of protests, he has sewed his lips and has made countless denounces: about the prices inside prison, against the irregularities and exploitation of the inmates work, against the faking of blood analysis or penitentiary reports… All of this has caused him many “first grades” (isolation) and transfers from prison to prison, with the intention that he gave up. He has reported abuses to prisoners rights and of the entire prison system. Last year, after holding a 76 day hunger strike, Amadeu gained the compromise of the penal institution to enjoy permits that would allow him to get to the “third grade” (weekend permits, the possibility to work outside prison and just go there to sleep…) and a subsequent freedom. Such compromise was blatantly ignored by the institutions. Since july 15th, Amadeu is again on hunger strike. More than 85 days already. This particular hunger strike started after the repression he has suffered since he wrote some communiqués where he explained, with actual names, some facts related to the people in charge of the Catalonian prison system. Since july 2008, Amadeu has spent more then 200 hundred days in hunger strike! He has been in forced feeding: 3,5 litres a day since september 24th. His lawyers and family find it extremely difficult to talk to him. Many “prison workers” and jail unions have tried to sanction the lawyers. When he wants to smoke, the rest of the inmates of the penitentiary wing of the Terrassa Hospital are forced to go back to their rooms. As well as the hunger strike, Amadeu has felt forced to add a thirst strike so to be able to get visits from family and lawyers. That first thirst strike accomplished his intentions. Since Sunday October 4th, he has started another one because they’re trying to transfer him again to prison, because “his health has improved”. Some actions and demonstrations have taken place, in Spain as well as in other countries. We feel the need to ask for solidarity with this anarchist fighter. A call for decentralized actions has been made until he gets his third grade and leaves the hunger strike. It should be noted that Amadeu’s position depends solely on the Catalonian prison and political system, not of Spain’s. Anyway, actions, information and solidarity should be carried in any possible way. It might also help (as happened during last year’s hunger strike, along with many actions) to saturate this fax number and e-mail accounts with messages supporting Amadeu: 5th, blatantly ignored by the institutions. nd just go there to sleep…ding a 76 day hunger strike, Amadeu gained the compromise of the penal institution.-th the intention that he gave up.-hunger strikes and other types of protests, he has Fax number: (++34)932140179 You can send it with this program for free: http://www.myfax.com/free/ e-mail accounts: sindic@sindic.cat justicia@gencat.cat We should not leave Amadeu in the hands of the State. Adelante compeñeros, until the liberation of Amadeu and the demolition of their dirty prisons!

Vassilis Palaiokostas nabbed after prison escape

GREECE’S most wanted man has been arrested and linked to the kidnapping of a prominent industrialist, prompting a double celebration for police.

Vassilis Palaiokostas was nabbed in northern Greece this week, two years after his audacious prison escape in a hijacked helicopter.

He has been unveiled as the mastermind behind the kidnapping of multi-millionaire businessman George Mylonas, a crime that has ultimately brought him undone.

“We arrested Greece’s most wanted fugitive last night. Evidence shows he is also involved in Greek businessman George Mylonas’s kidnapping,” a police official confirmed.

Police finally caught up with the escapee after raiding a house in Salonica in connection to the abduction of Mr Mylonas.

Three hooded men had snatched Mr Mylonas, 49, as he drove to his home in the same city in June.

He was released unharmed 13 days later, after his family paid a reported $19 million ransom.

Investigators tracked down his kidnappers after one of the men used traceable bills to buy a car.

The arrest has ended a remarkable chapter in the country’s criminal history.

Palaiokostas, 44, and his brother, Nikos, 47, are lifelong criminals with a penchant for armed robbery and extortion who are regarded as Robin Hood figures.

Helping to curry favour during years on the run, they had shared some of their ill-gotten gains with the poor.

In 2006, Vassilis Palaiokostas was languishing behind bars in the maximum-security Korydallos Prison, located outside Athens and home to 2000 of the country’s most dangerous prisoners.

He was serving a 25-year sentence for bank robbery and for kidnapping the owner of a factory that made halva, the Greek dessert.

The businessman in that case was released unharmed after the payment of a $2 million ransom, laying the foundations for Mr Mylonas’s kidnapping and a much larger payout.

In an episode ripped from the script of a Hollywood blockbuster, his brother and an accomplice hijacked a sight-seeing helicopter and forced the pilot to land inside the prison.

Vassilis and another inmate boarded the helicopter as his brother threw smoke grenades to provide cover. Confused guards initially believed they were undergoing a surprise inspection and then declined to fire a shot in anger.

“We cannot shoot down a helicopter flying over busy streets and houses,” one guard explained.

Under threat from a pistol and grenade, the terrified pilot dropped the group at a nearby cemetery, where witnesses saw them flee on waiting motorbikes.

Vassilis’s brother, Nikos, knew the prison inside out – he had broken out of Korydallos in 1990 and was still on the run 16 years later.

Nikos had originally been jailed for a series of bank robberies but was also charged in absentia with the same kidnapping as his brother.

He was captured soon after breaking his brother out of prison.

Police nabbed him after a dramatic car chase through the mountains of central Greece, and he is serving an 87-year sentence.

Although he had a stash of weapons on him when arrested, Nikos was no killer and had to be caught without the aid of informers, with a million-dollar reward going unclaimed.

Vassilis remained on the run until police investigating Mr Mylonas’s kidnapping hunted him down this week.

Finally, the Deputy Public
Prosecutor of the Supreme Court N. Pantelis had dismissed the mother’s 15 year-old student

Alexis Grigoropoulos, which called for a second time to be in Athens and not in Amfissa the trial of two special guards and B. S

Korkonea Saralioti to death son.

Buses will leave the museum athens at 6: 00 and 7:00

Because we must be early in Amfissa, arrivals will be directly and on time
6975794205 and 6939401371 anarchist comrades from athens

Anyone who wants a must to book at the phone numbers appear on the poster
Two documents for the trial of Korkonea and Saralioti 20 January Amfissa

On January 20 will be in Amfissa the trial of the Guard and Epaminondas Korkonea Saralioti Claus. The special guards

charged with the death of the young Alexander Grigoropoulos on December 6, 2008 in the area of Exarchia.

As anarchists we do not care for the award of “justice” by the state will not require the agencies to impose penalties in other

organs. As in all cases ( ‘light’ or ‘heavy’ penalties) vindicated the statism.

Moreover, the case of “justice” in the hands of officials and the “discretion” (political expediency) of power. In this respect it

is also irrelevant to any outcome of any trial, if and when made.

We care about the political exploitation of the dead 16-year Grigoropoulos Alexander, nor the upcoming trial of two special

guards. These reasonable to leave in any authoritarian cliques, trying to benefit from such situations.

What interests us is that the result of this fact a part of society rose and clashed, sought and seek effective ways of freedom

and justice over the power structures or any substitutes. This, we believe that it is an essential step that denies democratic or

undemocratic practices and reasonable and can affect key authoritarian conditions. And this is another significant legacy to

the holistic path to anarchy.

Photo Courts – Square Amfissa

The square is just short of the courts. Let us mind that the city has only one outlet and is surrounded by mountains.

Since I happen to have descended from Tinh town, there are 2 landings which conclude and 2 stin main square and therefore the courts and a town with little or no rimotomia, with many up and down and generally a closed city. Since I have no contact with inexperienced cops, talk about 400 and wants attention because if you shut the world from the cops there will be no escape routes and generally will be so bad. Much attention to those who will go!

From Lisbon: Ola, Alfredo and Christos

Freedom to Alfredo M. Bonanno and Christos Stratigopoulos.
Solidarity with those who struggle against this world.

On the 11th of January posters in solidarity with Alfredo M. Bonanno and Christos Stratigopoulos were glued on the walls of a few banks, universities and a train station, in Lisbon.
Below is the translation of the poster:

“The world of misery and authority in which we live, of walls that try to stop us from running and the despicable places they force us to inhabit is, in itself, the attempted elimination of any possibility to breathe freely, of all real communication between people and of all solidarity that dares express itself outside and against the institutions.
There’s no need for justifications or endless lists of examples for us to act.
In the search for a life without limits, we attack and smile. We smile inside, knowing that we share desires this world has no words to describe, nor bars to contain.
Ola, Alfredo and Christos!

Elijah Smith is still in jail 1 year on from his part in the decommissioning of the EDO/MBM/ITT factory in Brighton. EDO make parts for the weapons us


The trial will now be held on May 17th in the Brighton area

Matters are looking worse and worse for former British soldier Elijah who is still on remand after one year in gaol.

Yes that’s right – one year in prison without trial.

After the decommissioning case he will have another trial in September as his trial for the occupation of the Raytheon roof in Frenchay business Park is scheduled for September 2nd at Bristol crown court.

His trial for witness intimidation resulting from a minor comment made in court to EDO/MBM/ITT Managing Director Paul Hills is set to take place in August.

We believe that the witness intimidation charge is a malicious act by the state designed to keep Elijah in prison without trial for as long as possible so we are calling for his immediate release.

The committal hearing for the Raytheon roof was at the beginning of December 2009 and the trial is not likely to be that lengthy so why September?

There is no excuse for his continued incarceration as Elijah has an acceptable bail address and people who will stand surety for him.

Free Elijah Smith now

Sunday, 17 January 2010 Italy – Rosarno: the revolt of the slaves. Spartacus is back!

translated from cette semaine
16 January 2010

On January 9 and 10, hundreds of immigrants rose up in Rosarno, a little town in the south of Italy. After some were shot at with an air rifle, the insurgents, armed with sticks and stones, blocked the main roads by building barricades. From the centre of Rosarno, windows of shops and businesses were shattered, barricades were set alight and there were hard clashes with the police …and some of the local population demanding that ‘all blacks be expelled from Rosarno’. Some citizens used their cars to run down immigrants, others armed themselves with batons, axes and guns to quell the revolt. On the evening of January 10, police and citizens managed to chase the immigrants from the town. Over one thousand immigrants were transferred to detention centres to await expulsion, hundreds of others escaped from Rosarno on foot, by car or by train. All four thousand immigrants have been chased out of Rosarno.
In the south of Italy, especially in agriculture, tens of thousands of immigrants are exploited in conditions of slavery thanks to an alliance of mafias, local politicians, and businesses. Most of them sleep in abandoned factories, with no water, heating or electricity. Already there had been revolts, which were often repressed in blood by mafia mercenaries.
This leaflet was given out in Genoa:


The slave ceases to be such from the moment in which he tries to break his chains. At that moment, unconcerned about the consequences of his attempt dignity, desire, rage and a profound sentiment of injustice towards the the boss who forces him into slavery, comes forth once again in a liberatory manner.
The revolt of the slave is a supreme act, it is above everything an act of love of oneself and the whole of humanity. The revolt of the slave is hope and justice forged into weapons to become the concrete possibility of emancipation. It is quite simply the will for another life, possibly happy, that is affirming itself. The slaves of Rosarno have spoken. they have spoken through their acts and their rage. In the fires, the broken windows, in the uprooted road signs, in the beating of the police, hides the poetry of a lover.
Perhaps love without calculation, desperate love, love capable of being given, is something old. Just like slavery is an old thing. Perhaps that is precisely why today, those capable of understanding, of knowing how to read the poetry of the slaves of Rosarno, are few.
In this pathetic Italy, plunged into the fear of the ‘different’ and impregnated with hypocrisy, governed by vermin supported by even more imbecilic mobs corrupted by hatred and grown up in the mirage of accumulation and wealth, are today outraged. Outraged because of the violence, clandestine immigration, work conditions, insecurity and exasperation.
Well, shocked Sirs, honest Citizens, whether you are of the right or of the left, whether you are gooey with the treacle of Christianity or forged by the hammer blows of the Right, You are corpses.
Because only one ‘dead in spirit’ can debate a lover’s declaration of love in legal terms or inside the pages of a newspaper. Either you accept such a declaration, or you refuse it.
Those who accept the increasingly unbearable yoke of the State day after day, just like those who kiss the hands of the mafias when they strike, those who lick the ass of the boss – then grumble about the ones who are poorer or less fortunate – just like those who profit from other people’s misery; all such people will certainly refuse the advances of the immigrants of Rosarno. But these people aren’t worth talking to, they are not the ones that we want to talk to.
Those who will certainly know how to listen are the ‘libertines’, the spirits that still know how to desire, that still know the difference between surviving and living, between slavery and freedom. Who know that a thousand burnt cars are nothing compared to a man’s freedom and dignity.
Slavery consists of people and goods, businesses and relationships. It is possible thanks to a politic that is increasingly xenophobic and classist, supported by uniformed armies and mafiosi in white shirts.
The love of freedom consists of complicity and fantasy. The revolt of the African immigrants of Rosarno is a gift to all of us, now it is up to us to give something back.
Because nobody will ever be free until the last chain is broken.

Sunday, 17 January 2010 Explosive attack on pylon near Santiago prison

Society possesses various sticks. The one used to kidnap different beings is prison, where solitude and sadness reign.
The maginificent panopticon has seen a small flash of light at very close quarters. We hope that it broke the routine and stole a few complicit smiles from those who find themselves locked up for trying to expropriate something of their existence, for not submitting to the torture of work, and that the screws felt it on their skins, which is as sensitive as that of any other.
The place, a high voltage pylon, one of the reflexes of power, so our enemy. The chains of authority can be found in every breath. Liberation must be total, both for the earth and animals, humans and non humans.
We attacked very close to the prison of Santiago with an explosive device composed of an extinctor full of black powder and a detonator consisting of sulphuric acid in a condom and crushed match heads. Prison is not just a great edifice that is holding our comrades Axel, Pablo, Matias, Cristian, Flora (a particularly big hug). Authority takes many forms, it is also in each one of the institutions of the State starting from the family, then school, the psychiatric clinics and why not, even yourself. You can be your own prison warder. And as if that wasn’t enough, they are building prisons for children.
Our brotherly love to every individual that takes a position against any kind of authority, from the most simple gesture. We are launching an appeal for the free association of individuals as the way to organise oneself in contrast to the relations imposed by society, reflected from the genesis of our lives. To the warriors arrested in Mexico, who localised and attacked the enemy, power, and with it civilisation. Abraham and Fermin, a fraternal and antiauthoritarian embrace. We salute every action of solidarity with the last hunger strike. The spaces of power contiue to be struck without fear or respect. To Diego, may your flight be eternal, brother. You have offered us another choice and, even if we can’t see your smile, we hear your scornful laughter. To your memory, wild Mauricio Morales.
Against all authority: revolt and insurrection.
For the destruction of power and civilisation.
For the destruction of the prisons of humans, animal and the earth.

New bloody attack on police. Even a well-organized plan by terrorists, this time against the Police Department Agia

the father much joking at the time. After two years, but the picture changed. One day his father came home darkening. The

mother looked at him and realized what had happened. He had lost his job … Now my father is unemployed over three years. At

first we thought it would recover some day job, but now even the children we have lost all hope.

At a time when all are short, the existence and maximize the poverty of large segments of society intensifies. In the lie of the

day, heard a deep truth. Capitalism is in crisis. This truth can be found in the financial churches, banks and a wide range of

economic, political and intellectual levels.
Large and small, left and right bosses anxious as they try to gain some time. They can no longer promise nor guarantee their

own present.
In the climate of “rigor” are some nuclei with self-organized resistance struggle daily practices, giving even this political and

social status.
The state and capitalism but nothing is left unanswered. In the name of “social cohesion” is democracy and through-rogue

regime’s policies, karieriston local rulers (who are embroiled in investing activities) journalists and cops, suppress the struggle

for freedom. A battle which has several roads. One of them is the particular set chosen.
Together with the anti-authoritarians in power (and master of all kinds) are the murderers and the people, the householders.

In the race of growth, this category of people covering the majority of society borrows. Borrow from banks pimps, is snail sucks

and politicians, thus having the feeling that this will remain strong and can take the next step. You can reach the oneiro.Na get

into a story which is maintained by Formalin cabinet in capitalism. In this category of people no sense of solidarity. The

property and how to place it in the ass is the only thought that dominated their heads. The mind wants to unstick a large amount

of grease *.
So on Thursday at 01:25 safeguarding team has two partners walk around the area of the prefecture. Identified 3 stupid cops

in front of the political office of M. Bolaris, while passing a angavercopcar. After synenoisi at 01:33 comrades washed two discs

of the prefect S. Fotiadis.
This operation is characterized by us policy. So indeed was. After any master of our cause vomiting. However, the content of

the act is purely symbolic.
We send our solidarity with the comrades H. Nicholaou, C. Dimitraki, P. Georgiadis, who are hostage in the hands of the state.

* Grease: Material mix elaion.Aparaitito for machinery and tools. Imagine a river k prefect starting with grease Valley Ag to

Reading on 16/10/2009 and by agreeing wholeheartedly with the Declaration of the Founding L.T.K. we decided to contribute to

charitable and so useful social work, setting fire to four luxury cars.

Concepts such as class revenge and class hatred in the text of the Club, we agree wholeheartedly with the same angry and so

against the specific symbols of wealth and against their owners.

The luxury cars are a demonstration of wealth and is often the result of labor exploitation. Even though this is not leaving us

icily indifferent as these owners are trying to go the opposite camp, the dream is to anelichthoun class showing the opulence or

having the financial ability or not …

So we decided to decentralize and to visit the north and south proastia.Na to get yards, to cross the streets set fire to their

symbols of wealth and chlidis.Oi options have been apeires.Oi concrete were less fortunate …

So we hit on Wednesday January 13

1) A JAGUAR in Paleo Faliro

2) A CHEROKEE MERCEDES in a Heliopolis

3) A PORSCHE CAYENNE in Kifissia

Our goal is to attack the private wealth. Our goal is the generalized class war. We do not forget their comrades who chose this

path in any cost. Our solidarity with the Polykarpos Georgiadis Chrysocho’i’di Vangelis, who standing trial on February 2 for the

Mylonas abduction case, and give solidarity Paleokosta nikos escape with helicopter from prison!!!

Neither crocodile tears nor silence Solidarity with the Haitian people


Tragedy strikes once again Haiti. This time, it was a fierce 7 degree earthquake which has devastated the country and turned it into rubble. We have yet to know the exact number of victims, but the Red Cross is talking about 3 million affected and the number of dead could well go up to 100,000 – a horrible count if we take into account that the country has a population of only 8 million. The images circulating of survivors crushed under the rubble begging for help, of wounded children, of people breaking down in tears for the death of their relatives, give a much more accurate sense of the horror of this tragedy – much better than anything we could say.

In this terrible moment, as usual, we stand with the Haitian people. We give them all of our solidarity, their pain being our pain, and from this forum we call our readership and anyone aware to help generously through the humanitarian organisations that have sent appeals in order to bring some relief in these dramatic conditions.

Also, we cannot help feeling a just sense of disgust with the hypocrisy of an “international community” that once again is shedding crocodile tears in the face of this “incomprehensible tragedy” (to borrow Obama’s own words), without recognizing their own share of responsibility in it – the impact of the earthquake was so devastating because this is a people already devastated by a century of military intervention, shameless plunder, of US- and French-backed autocratic regimes and of international financial institutions’ policies aiming at ruining the Haitian people for the benefit of few. This country has been turned into an enormous sweatshop, where the majority of its people survive thanks to charity. We are not faced with a mere natural disaster, as the media would like us to believe: we are, in fairness, facing a man-made tragedy. This earthquake merely came to finish the job started by the US, France, Canada, the MINUSTAH (the occupation troops of the UN), the International Monetary Fund and fake development agencies such as USAID.

They didn’t care about the Haitian people when they drowned in a fraudulent external debt acquired by the dictatorship of the Duvalier, and they never felt any “anguish” whatsoever in looting even the last penny of this starved and impoverished country;

They didn’t care about the Haitian people when they “had to” impose structural adjustment programmes in the ‘90s, that had such calamitous results on the population, as for example with the case of the reduction in tariffs for imported staples such as rice. The result of this was the absolute destruction of the Haitian peasantry, which was driven to the slums of Port-au-Prince – leaving a country that up to then was perfectly able to feed itself, to starve to death, as shown by the hunger rebellion of April 2008.

They didn’t care about the Haitian people when the dictatorships of Duvalier, Namphy, Avril, Cedras and Latortue (all of which had the approval of Washington and Paris) raped, maimed, “disappeared” and massacred thousands of Haitians. Some of them, such as Jean Claude Duvalier, live luxuriously in France. Others, such as Raoul Cedras, thanks to the pay received from the US as part of their agreement to step down from power, turned into respectable businessmen – in Panama, in the case of Cedras.

They didn’t care about the Haitian people when we heard of thousands of denunciations of sexual abuse by the troops of the “civilising” mission of MINUSTAH, who still occupy, rape and murder in absolute impunity. Proof of that was the repatriation to Sri Lanka of over a hundred Sri Lankan blue helmets in November 2007, after having been accused of rape; in their country, they did not face even a pantomime of a trial.

They didn’t care about the Haitian people when the sweatshops came to grossly distort the Haitian economy, paying starvation wages while abuses of all sorts were taking place in their compounds on a daily basis.

The list of reasons to be indignant with the hypocritical sorry statements of people like Sarkozy, Obama, Ban-Ki-Moon and Lula, is way too long to give it in full length. Let us just say that the more miserable a population is, the stronger it will be hit by the vicissitudes of nature. That misery has been caused by forces imposing the current social model through dictatorships and international pressures; if three out of four people living in Port-au-Prince dwell in shacks, in slums that sprung out of the Haitian economic ruin (mainly of the countryside), can we really wonder that the death toll has to be counted in the thousands?

We hope that the solidarity of the people all over the world with their Haitian brethren will be massive. As has been previously said, solidarity is the tenderness of the people. And we hope that this solidarity, on which thousands of lives currently depend on, arrives to its destination instead of being trapped in a cobweb of NGOs and Aid Agencies. Doubtlessly, there are a number of reputable organisations today such as the Red Cross doing much necessary relief work; but alongside them, sharks will appear to profit out of this tragedy. We have to watch out for them and the popular movement of Haiti needs to be alert to make sure that the assistance does actually arrive and is distributed efficiently. We also hope that there is no invasion of “white men” brought by some NGOs to do work, such as building houses, that the locals – 80% of whom are unemployed – can perfectly well do and should do themselves.

Once again, we call for your solidarity. Not only in the face of this particular tragedy that shakes anyone who has a heart in their breast, but solidarity now and always; a type of solidarity that scratches underneath the surface of devastation to understand the deep roots of the Haitian tragedy. Roots which are, in any case, deeper than an earthquake of force 7 on the Richter scale; in other words, a solidarity that forces us to re-think the relations that the great world powers have with our region, of which Haiti is only the worst example. This solidarity should make us question the role served by the troops that the majority of Latin American countries have in the military occupation of Haiti – an occupation that has had as much of a devastating effect as this earthquake, something hard to deny notwithstanding the photo-ops of MINUSTAH soldiers giving packets of rice to the homeless.

Gabriel is an anarchist who along with another, Jose Fernandez Delgado, escaped from the brutal F.I.E.S prison system of the Spanish State. Gabriel and Jose are now residing in the Jails of Germany, after attempting to escape a police control on the Belgium/German border. Gabriel has written quite a lot since being in Jail 20 years, and he is only 36.

You can read more about the case here: escape into rebellion

A letter from Gabriel Pombo da Silva

“Yes, I am aware of the harsh repression that you have been suffering in Italy, further reason for reinforcing the undertaking of the Anarchist Black Cross.

Obviously they want to wipe us out in a squalid manner, thus their effort to criminalize “anti-repressive organizations” and place them on the same “legal” level as the Informal Groups. The fact is that they want to shut up any opposition to their system of Domination, Control, Exploitation and Death.

All my rebel love and complicity can be taken for granted: to the Informal Groups of the FAI and, generally, to all those who struggle against the State-Capital and its Prisons… and to all comrades in prison, all the more so if “guilty” like me of loving freedom in all its sense without measure.

Our trial in Aachen finally comes to sentence in August… I say finally because it is torture to go to court. They handle us worse than animals, with glasses provided with black-painted lenses, earplugs and shackled hands and feet… We are scattered in various prisons and they always transport us separately, each with his or her group of riot cops in balaclavas.

After 21 years of prison, so much struggle and torture, there is nothing that surprises me in this life. It only provokes me to greater rage that correspondence is “lost” along the way or only gets to me after several months of delay. What the fascists of the Spanish state were unable to do the “German Federal Republic” is doing.

I feel powerless and enraged because I can do nothing about it, and in this sense I appeal to the international revolutionary solidarity of our comrades.

A strong rebel embrace to all!!”

Another text from Gabriel:

“It’s raining in Aachen”

by Gabriel Pomba da Silva,

Anarchist insurrectionalist political prisoner in Germany

Translated by Jordan ML, 2005

It’s raining in Aachen and above a grand expanse of grey clouds hangs, and when my eyes sink from the heights to the front, i see a wall, also grey, and behind the wall denuded trees that raise their arms to the heavens as though they were imploring, damning, rebuking, asking, “why are my roots set in this Earth, this cemetery of living men who wander like zombies between the walls of their cells?”

All the same, tree-brothers… there you are, predestined as am I to suffer the rigors of the Seasons, of the Weather, of the caprices of men and the rigors of intemperateness… It’s only that many moons ago I ceased raising my arms to the heavens to beg, damn, rebuke or ask for anything from the Architect of the Universe…

I let the rain soak me, I let the cold make me contract… I let the rays of the sun caress me… I close my eyes and I am like you, and when I open them again I am a tree with blood and eyes that contemplate, from the vantage point of the inevitable, the passage of time, amazed and petrified.

There was once a Time when I had no roots, and traveled to many different places, where I saw blue, yellow, orange, and red skies… Skies darkened by a million flickering eyes…

There was once a Time when I climbed on the arms of our brothers and sat myself in the highest branches to see human beings as ants wandering from one side to the other, and I asked myself, what is pushing them to this frenetic coming and going?

Oh yes!! And by the way I discovered in your hands and arms bird’s nests, eggs, little birds without feathers and with closed eyes… and I murmured to them, “One day you will open up your eyes and fly through many colored skies… but you must beware of the huntsmen…”

Oh!! I am sure that many birds, descendants of those others that I saw with their eyes closed, have flown over infinitely colored skies, have lit upon branches in many other trees… some others will have fallen from the nest, others will have been hunted down, others abandoned because some hunter will have killed their fathers and mothers…

But life goes on its inexorable course, full of life and death, happiness and tragedy, full of trees: men, woman, and birds, heavens of a thousand colors, of rain and sun…

It’s raining in Aachen and I am not going to let my memories, my emotions, my ideas and feelings die of the cold and the grey, nor at the hands the frenetic ant-men…

It’s raining in Aachen and I let the rain soak me, feed my melancholy, and give wings to my dreams… After everything, brother tree, our roots are fed by the Earth, and everyone and everything, sooner or later, ends up as shadow, ash, memory, yesterday… Well then, why not go forwards faithfully towards anarchy? Is there anything greater? I ask you…
