>Brussels – Tens of youngsters attack cops

>

BRUSSELS – Faking a fight, youngsters attracked the attention of police in the metro station of Rogier, center of Brussels. When two cops showed up, around 50 youngsters attacked them. The two cops got injured; two youngsters were later arrested.

It seems this was a pre-meditated attack against the railroad police.

>BRISTOL UK: Serco van torched!

>


Freedom | 20.04.2010 14:49

In the early hours of Tuesday, April 20th, a van belonging to Serco – a big player in the contruction and management of private prisons – was torched in Montpellier, north Bristol.

We took this action to express our solidarity with the anarchist comrades in Turin whom the Italian state continues to attack under the pracarious appearance of conspiracy, for nothing other than the distribution of anti-racist propaganda. We also attack for the comrades in Greece accused of participation in the ‘terrorist’ organization, Revolutionary Struggle.

Need it be said that we remember Alfredo and Christos, imprisoned in Korrydallos for a revolutionary act of expropriation against a bank in Trikala last October.

Until every filthy manifestation of this social prison in nothing but broken glass and burnt rubble, we will continue to fight.

>FREEDOM FOR ALL IN GREECE AND EVERYWHERE!! international solidarity !!

>

Last Tuesday, March 23rd, a few hundred flyers were handed out at the entrance, inside and around the Commercial and Economic Section of the Greek Embassy in Lisbon.

The text of the flyer:

« Freedom for all, in Greece and everywhere.

It’s true, the situation in Portugal is the same as in Greece. Populations living in poverty, on a daily misery in which we feel life turning into survival, at the same time that bosses and banks rob us of each moment and each place that used to be ours. Police, courts and prisons for those who dare to confront that misery and, increasingly, even for those who do not confront it at all. People that with a disgusting regularity are persecuted, beaten or murdered with shots by the police, because we all are a potential threat, no more no less, because the State has the authority and the weapons and the fear of revolt. Prisons that efficiently do their job: to eliminate dignity, to serve as a warehouse of undesirables, to give the example, to execute rebelliousness. To execute, plain and simply.

But in Portugal, as in Greece, as everywhere, there are those who do not stay still in the face of this system of exploitation, of oppression, of the elimination of everything that still breaths freely. There are those who put despair and resignation away, and grab life with nails and teeth, going for the attack.

Christos Stratigopoulos and Alfredo Maria Bonanno are only two of those individuals, arrested on October 2009, following a bank robbery in Trikala, Greece. Regardless of the crimes they are being charged with, the struggle for freedom is the crime they’ve always committed.

We want to denounce, in particular, the abusive detention of Alfredo M. Bonanno under unacceptable conditions in the prison of Koridallos (Athens), worsened even more with the attempt to frame him up with another bank robbery on July 2009. The politics of vengeance of the State has the aim of eliminating physically and psychologically this comrade of 73 years old who faces serious health problems. Alfredo Bonanno is an anarchist, involved in the movement since decades ago, active in the resistance against the dictatorship of the Greek colonels (1967-1974), and writer and editor of many anarchist texts. These are the true reasons for which they keep him in prison under conditions that endanger his life.

We demand the immediate release of Alfredo Maria Bonanno.

For the destruction of all prisons.

International solidarity initiative to Alfredo M. Bonanno and Christos Stratigopoulos »

On the same day a banner with the words “Against the Greek State and all prisons / Freedom for Bonanno and Christos” was hung on the Alameda fountain, in Lisbon.

Vandals spray paint Rio’s Christ statue

Vandals  spray paint Rio\

17/4

Vandals covered the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro with spray-painted graffiti, marring the monument in an act Rio’s mayor called a “crime against the nation.”

The vandals covered the head, arms and chest of the 130-foot statue, which sits atop the 2,300-foot Corcovado mountain, using scaffolding that had been erected to carry out maintenance work. Phrases scrawled on the statue included

“When the cat’s away, the rats will play,” as well as what appeared to be references to Rio residents who were killed or who disappeared in recent crimes, the newspaper O Globo reported

Paris – action in solidarity with the Greek (and other) comrades


translated from cette semaine

16 April 2010 – 17:19 par ANONYME

During the night between 15 and 16 April, in Montmartre, we covered a DAB of the Société Générale in paint, leaving a slogan o0n the wall opposite “Bim ! War on capital”. Further away, another slogan “war on property” was left on the façade of a building society of which one window was broken. With this action,we are sending our solidarity to the comrades in Greece and elsewhere who are struggling against domination in all its forms.

The social war knows neither truce nor frontier.

>Freedom for Costantino, Silvia and Billy (Switzerland)

>


On the 15th of April Costantino, Silvia and Billy were arrested in Switzerland under the charge of transport of explosive material and of having tried to use it.

We affirm our absolute solidarity with them. Their identity and their struggle is the identity and struggle of all revolutionaries, because they fought with passion, persistency and absolute will against the state and capitalism, who has produced wars, death, environmental destruction, exploitation, surpression and profit for those in power. And the control and bio- and nanotechnological development are some of the instruments in the hands of those in power, to preserve these circumstances.

There are three kinds of people: those who stand at the window and follow what happens; those who stand at the window and comment on what happens; and then there are those, who make the things in front of the
window happen.

These people – who have understood the necessity to become active to free themselves from the chains of this society – are the irreplaceable ones and we stand on their side.

Solidarity is our weapon!
Solidarity with Costa, Silvia and Billy!
Solidarity with Marco Camenisch!
Solidarity with all political prisoners!

At the moment Costantino is in the prison ‘Amtshaus Bern’, Luca is in the prison of Thun and Silvia is in the prison of Biel.

Who wants to send them letters, postcards or telegrams should do so at this address:

April 15th, Paris: Solidarity action with the Greek comrades

On April 15th, in Montmartre, we recovered with color an ATM of the Société Générale Bank (keyboard, screen, slot), writing a graffiti on the close wall “ Bim! War to capital!“. Further, another graffiti„War to property“ was left on the front of an estate agency in construction, which one glass has been broken. With this action, we send our solidarity to the companions in Greece and elsewhere, who fight against domination, and all the forms it can have.

Social war doesn‘t know any truce, nor borders.

Madrid – new attack on police academy of Atocha in solidarity with Greek comrades and Tamara

Thursday, 15 April 2010


fonte: http://madrid.indymedia.org, via culmine

There has been another attack against the police academy in Atocha, with a hammer a window of the main entrance was smashed and sprayed Freedom to the Greek anarchists” and “Freedom Giannis“.

This dictatorship needs obedient servants to protect the interests of the dominant class. Those who rebel against this misery, against this form of life imposed and made artificial will be excluded, tortured, arrested and/or as it the case of Giannis who like many others has decided to rebel, and refuse to accept the imposition of work, consumerism, false freedom, to accept living death. For this now he is condemned now by all the scoria that serve the State/Capital: police, judges, journalists, engineers, professors… they are our enemies, let’s attack them!

Freedom to Giannis Dimitrakis

Freedom to Tamara

Freedom to the rebel prisoners!!

>Chile – young punk killed by carabineros

>

Monday, 12 April 2010



from informa-azione / diyfusionxanarcopunk.entodaspartes.net
Monday 5 April, in the Nueva Braunau locality about 10 kilometres from Puerto Varas the carabineros surprised -at 2 in the morning – 3 young people who were drinking outside their home. The cops went up to them and told them they were going to arrest them. An argument broke out between the young people and the carabinero. The sister of the victim affirmed: “during the discussion a carabinero threatened to kill my brother and he replied “kill me” , not thinking that he would shoot. Instead the carabinero fired a shot at him.”
“Pepo”, the victim, was shot at close range , less than one metre and fell to the ground. The carabineros did not help the victim and the ambulance arrived after 25 minutes. The ambulance of the police in the area did not intervene.
The young punk died after arriving at the hospital. The two young people accompanying him were taken to the police station.

>An incredible fiasco became the company of police andantiteroristcops of local and foreign services.

>

11/april

A few hours ago announced cuts in wages and mass layoffs new public and private sector from the IMF, the

cops GREECE and americans bastards with their bosses, trying to set up another political plot by militants. Compared with past

political machinations – this fiasco are different.

First to sign the Poulain murderers of the American embassy, and the great Chrysochoidis. Also for the first time in prison will

be blunt (is expected) people because their computers in their libraries were dissidents texts. For the first time in many years

to criminalize political discourse rather than an abstract of the current systemic culture of criminalization, but there will be a

real episode in real life.

The charges against the detainees is that the hard drives of texts found in the police attributed to political organizations of

armed violence. But the political organizations of armed violence is not mentioned in nefelim and Elohim, but in political issues

concerning the operation of the order of few against the many. Only organizations are political texts with references to political

issues of all. It is the first time that the political discourse while not accompanied by a “criminal act” sufficient to prison

someone. The texts were found (according to the official announcement) in the possession of arrested persons are not attached

to a hit but “highly likely” that the amerikanotsoliades a blueprint for future attacks. .

Previously another bright luminary of the American Embassy, who served with loyalty and dedication the appropriate Ministry

of Chrysochoidis, put other ingredients in such cases for example, a little hash, a little gun ownership, a wig, a fingerprint, a

kettle, a frying pan, a vre something the brother to tie scenario, and had seen three or four American films, they were not

“illiterate” like this one here ..

From the first moment of operation of the cretin and police departments, and MMEmazi regime ‘in the journalistic army. The

news of the company channeled first through administrative channels to the media after cops assumed by the news of the

arrest sent through administrative all media, from television of Vardilogianni, etc. Bobolas up the web of “honest journalists”

who were preparing the titles pychaious success .

In the end, rather than guns, dynamite, masks, etc., were found to count pages from political manifestos and television media

were putting Ms. puts screens up bottles for cleaning lenses known company that had become completely black from the ink

for fingerprints.

The size is huge fiasco is exactly proportional to the image have COPS both political radical spaces (anarchist-independent

elected, etc.) for years in a permanent attacking institutions and mechanisms, no one can hold this social- political piece to

something more “visible” and thus more controllable. ‘Osokai for groups of armed force to attack at a time when both the left

and the other power forces can not defend anything, having completely killed ..

That are commonly cops deep midnight, can not understand the processes contributing to things. .

As part dakrygono and of our great offer to the public consultation of public affairs, we hope to the cops and the other

americans bastards good reading of hard disks, books, magazines and newspapers picked up on this wonderful business and to

supplement the first opportunity to let go at any bookstore to find even more .. ….

>Sodimatex struggle: what next?

>


    April 7th, Crépy-en-Valois: workers threaten again to blow up their factory
    „Without us, no cars“

Since Friday April 2nd, the workers threaten to put in fire the propane tank. They barricaded the factory after they have been circled by the gendarmerie mobile (a fast unit from the army, called for riots). Staff have already set fire to pieces of plastic and rolls of carpet at the factory, sending billowing black smoke into the sky.

Workers at a factory facing closure in France have threatened to blow up the plant unless they are given better layoff compensation. About 50 workers at Sodimatex, which makes car rugs, have been occupying the site in Crepy-en-Valois since Thursday. They are pressuring the company for better compensation. The employees have placed petrol bombs near a large gas tank and are threatening to set them ablaze. The French industry minister has condemned the move and urged the workers to settle the row through talks.

France is suffering a 10 percent unemployment rate — highest in a decade. The car industry is among the hardest-hit by the economic slowdown. Plant closings have led French workers to increasingly militant behavior, with numerous cases of boss-napping over the past year and one other case of a threat to blow up a factory.

    Negociations in the police sub-headquarter

    This wednesday, after a day of negociations, the workers occupied again their place; lighting fire for the night and threatening again to put in fire the propane tank. Obvisously, the negociations haven‘t lead to what they expected. Due to pres, the ‚Trèves‘ company suggested to give them 3200euro, whereas they asked for 21 000euro. Some workers left the meeting, joigning the new occupation, while the negociations went on several hours.

#234 | The attempted cover-up of Alexis’ murder

From tragedy to farce and back again: a few notes on the ongoing trial of Alexis’ murderers

The trial of Epaminondas Korkoneas and Vassilis Saraliotis, the two cops who killed Alexandros Grigoropoulos, has been taking place in the remote town of Amfissa (230 km away from Athens) since mid-February. Away from the chaotic times of Athens, an outrageous cover-up of the murder is being attempted by the cops’ lawyer (Kougias) and largely assisted, it seems, by the court’s judge.

  • First, the decision to hold the trial so far away from Athens (apparently for security reasons) causes tremendous access issues to eye-witnesses wishing to testify in court; many of them (who were Alexis’ friends) are juveniles and traveling away from Athens for a few days is near-impossible.
  • One of the alleged “key eye-witnesses”, named Anta Tsormpatzioudi, has now proven to be a perjurer (false witness), willingly lying to court. Her original testimony had been accepted by the court, causing the lawyers of Alexis’ family to resign in protest (the trial continues with new lawyers).
  • The testimony by Ms. Tsormpatzioudi was key, as her supposed “eye-witness account” was used for the reconstruction of the murder. However, a court order to publicise the mobile phone conversations between Tsormpatzioudi and a chief police-man of the local police station of Exarcheia (called Dimos Minoudis) reveals that the two had frequent conversations (that they had denied in court) – the first being three hours after Alexis’ assassination and continuing up until a few days prior to, and on the actual day of the re-enactment of the murder.
  • A friend of Alexis’ who was next to him when he was assassinated (we had spoken with him then), now 17 years old, has denied to appear in court, as he claims to be under police surveillance and fears for his life – while he has also declared he has no faith in the trial process. The court has issued an order for the violent transfer of the teenager to court; he has now gone into hiding.
  • Meanwhile, one riot policeman who was present at the scene also testified yesterday, claiming that the situation at the spot prior to the assassination was calm – and in this way contradicting the statements of every single other policeman – who were claiming that the shooting took place amidst rioting…

The “trial” continues.

solidarity with Marios Zervas website in english

solidarity with  Marios Zervas website in english
clik on foto…

Anarchists have occupied the School of Jurnalism in the centre of Thessaloniki.

They call for a gathering at 10.30 on Friday at the court of the city for solidarity to the 3 comrades that were arrested before the demonstration that took place on Thursday for writing political slogans with spray, and for a gathering on Saturday in a central square for solidarity to the 6 arrested comrades that are accused for participation in the organization ‘Revolutionary Struggle’. Next assembly is on Friday at 17.00.

More than 4,000 people demonstrate last night in Athens in solidarity with Marios Zervas who was arrested without any reason one month ago during the big strike and he still in jail since then, without a trial. Marios was arrested and accused without any evidence during the demonstration of the strikers. Marios has…dreadlocks which looked very suspicious to the riot cops who decided to arrest him out of the blue and accuse him for rioting, while there is no other evidence apart from the cops’ testimony. 16/4

15/4/ Arson attack on Christos Protopapas office (mp of the ruling party Pasok),

A gas canister explosive device was put outside the door of the offices on Sina and Akadimias Street, Athens, yesterday..

If they want to create division, indifference and passivity by spreading terror and slander, we should turn against them the weapon of SOLIDARITY.

If the mechanisms wish to present themselves as the only subject who writes its bloody history conducting the peoples’ lives, we have every reason to talk about all those struggles burst and still bursting in every place where the dictatorship of the states and the capitalists is imposed, about this eternal fight for freedom that goes on, in different ways and forms in time and space.

To shout for all those who are kept hostages by the states, while the regime’s propaganda, when not presenting them as “dangerous criminals”, tries to present as “harmless and weak”, “depoliticized” and “marginalized” in order to disdain the choice of resistance. And say what is really ventured, why they are affraid of them and affraid of us.

To talk about the ways that the criminal gangs of the states and the bosses have used in order to imprison the revolted people and about this spirit of revolt that they never managed to imprison… FROM ACT FROM FREEDOM NOW.. OUR SOLIDARITY TO THE 6 COMRADES IN ATHENS..
