Italy : Vince free! NEITHER PRISONS! NOR EXPULSIONS!

On August 8th, anarchist comrade Vincenzo Vecchi was arrested in France after being on the run for over 7 years. For the State Vince was nowhere to be found following the sentence of 11 and a half years for “devastation and looting” for the events of the G8 in Genoa.
While awaiting the sentence of the French court concerning the validity of the European arrest warrant, we want to continue talking about certain topics such as going into hiding or the revolt of Genoa, which Vince’s choice confronts us with daily.

NEITHER PRISONS! NOR EXPULSIONS!
THURSDAY NOVEMBER 14
READING OF SOME TEXTS FROM THE BOOK ‘IN INCOGNITO’ AND COMPARING GOING INTO HIDING AND CLANDESTINITY
Going into hiding and clandestinity are dimensions that cannot be ignored, both as conscious choices or conditions that power forces masses of individuals into.
The book ‘In Incognito’ presents the words of some of those who have escaped from the meshes of States in first person. That is why we have decided to make a comparison by starting off from reading excerpts from some of the theses in the book.

Lecce, Italy: Break down the walls of power

Let’s break down the walls of power
It now appears that “Lecce city of tourism” no longer tolerates any dissent. A city now completely gentrified, synonymous with a controlled city. The walls erected following the eviction of the new anarchist occupation in the historic centre, in a building owned by the municipality, speak for themselves. Outside of consumption, nothing is granted. And the historic centre of Lecce is now totally a place of consumption, with its bars and restaurants, trendy pubs and luxury shops, hotels and B&Bs. For residents of the past, singled out because they are inhabitants of the historic centre, there is no place left. There is no place for resistants of any kind.
The walls go up for those who do not adapt or are different: whether they are immigrants who have been living in the Giravolte for over twenty years, or those who want to take over a space to express their ideas and desires. Those walls are the exact expression of power. Whether it is called Us with Salvini [“Noi con Salvini”, electoral party coalition led by Matteo Salvini, leader of the “Northern League” party, currently renamed “League]” or Us with Salvemini (mayor of Lecce), the processes carried out are exactly the same. The first with brutality, the second with a smile, security and decorum are the central part of power’s agenda. An agenda that means more and more police in the streets, TSO, annihilation of social life, expulsion of undesirables, total control, homologation. Because everything is connected and it is not possible to feel left out.

Italy Cagliari, Sardinia : Poster in solidarity with the investigated for the “Lince” operation

No military bases
On Wednesday, September 18, 2019, the Cagliari prosecutor’s office closed the investigation into the 2014 – 2017 anti-militarist struggle cycle, accusing forty-five people.
Five of them are accused of 270bis, a “subversive association with terrorist purposes”, while the rest are accused of having taken part in some moments of collective struggle such as demonstrations near military polygons or in the city, or for having violated a foglio di via [repressive measure that prevents a person from entering a particular municipality or province].
The Italian State now presents the bill trying to make it pay to some of the many who in those years fought to block the military exercises and to put a stick in the wheels of the soldiers who occupy our land.
This attack is aimed at all those who dare to raise their heads against the military occupation of Sardinia, to all those who do not want to stand defenseless before those who, a few steps away from us, prepare wars or manufacture weapons.
They accuse five people of “terrorism” and of directing the struggles of those years. Nothing more false.
Anyone who has participated in those moments knows it well, no leader and only one goal: to stop the military exercises.
These accusations will not stop our anger or appease our determination, we know we are right and this is enough for us.
We will return to those nets, we will continue to hinder you.
Investigated and in solidarity

Munich,Germany : Solidarity with the social revolt in Chile!

Munich, 20.11.19: In Chile tens of thousands of people have been revolting for weeks against the prevailing normality. Police stations, churches, banks, shopping malls, buses, subway stations and universities burn. The normal everyday life has come to a standstill and the state and capitalist power is attacked.
How can we express our solidarity and solidarity with the revolts there?
There are various possibilities … in Munich, for example, In recent nights, several ticket machines have been lit and burned at various stations. Also, the Chilean Consulate was defaced with color and “fire all states! (A) “sprayed next to this. A nearby church was smeared and sprayed on “No God No State No Patriarchy” on it.
It would be nice if such proposals were to be disseminated wildly and other possibilities of solidarity put into practice.

Athens, Greece: Responsibility claim for the attack to the New Democracy offices and to the Hellenic Post at Pefki by ANARCHIST COMBATANTS / “HORIZON OF DESTRUCTION” CELL

We claim the responsibility for the incendiary attacks against the local
offices of New Democracy and the building of the Hellenic Post at the
area of Pefki in the northern suburbs (of Athens), as a fiery welcoming
for the new government and its politicians, such us the human garbage
with the axes* who sit on the parliament seats, and our lovely scum
Adonis Georgiadis, an infamous hilarious political figure of the extreme right wing.
Each one of our attacks is a promise to our struggle towards anarchy, and our signal of solidarity with our wanted and imprisoned
comrades. For now, we don’t have many things to say. Now is the moment for action and for constant and abiding multi-form struggle. Strength to and complicity with everyone who will take the streets with the desire to vandalize, to throw stones to the cops, and to burn the authoritarian symbols. Strength to and complicity with all the anarchist prisoners all around the world. Solidarity means attack.
STRENGTH TO THE WANTED ANARCHIST DIMITRIS CHANTZIVASILIADIS

Munich,Germany: Arson attack on radio mast – high property damage

Munich, 19.11.19: The fire of a mobile radio mast in Munich has caused damage of around 250,000 euros.
There is a high probability of arson, police said on Wednesday. Since one suspects a left-political motivation, the state protection took over the investigations. But there are still no findings on the exact backgrounds. The forces also saw the fire from afar. At about 40 meters height burned the platform of a transmission tower.
With two fire trucks and an aerial ladder the fire department will eventually extinguish the fire. In order to be able to search the platform for embers, a special articulated mast with a working platform was requested. The device has a maximum working height of 53 meters. This allowed the emergency services to reach the platform.

(CHILE) UN VIAJE SIN RETORNO A NUESTRA COMPLETA LIBERTAD Y DIGNIDAD


El estallido social iniciado el 18 de octubre y la represión desatada
por el Estado demostraron el fracaso del modelo político chileno y su
modelo económico.
El origen de todo esto va más allá del gobierno contra el que hoy
combatimos, y la revuelta que se propagó luego de las evasiones masivas protagonizadas por estudiantes en lucha tiene su origen en la rabia por los atropellos soportados y permitidos por décadas. Nada bueno puede surgir como consecuencia de entregar al Estado, políticos y autoridades la capacidad de decidir sobre nuestras vidas al mismo tiempo que intentamos sobrevivir en un sistema que transforma nuestras necesidades en un negocio y nuestro tiempo en el dinero que nos han impuesto como la única forma de obtener lo que necesitamos.
Haciendo estallar las calles y las conciencias, muchas personas hemos
sentido que con la explosión de la rabia nos hemos embarcado en un viaje sin retorno hacia la recuperación de nuestra completa dignidad y
libertad. Y en medio de todo lo que estamos experimentando en lo
personal y lo colectivo sabemos que hay personas que antes del 18 de
octubre ya transitamos por los caminos de la lucha ancestral por una
vida libre sin Estado ni autoridad.
En ese caminar, hemos aprendido que la medida del Estado de emergencia con militares en la calle y toque de queda decretada por el gobierno derechista de Piñera es solo una parte del arsenal represivo que todos los gobiernos han puesto en practica con variadas formas a lo largo de la historia.

Athens, Greece: Responsibility claim for the attack against DIAS forces and MAT van in Exarchia

In the night of Thursday 7th of November 2019, we chose to attack the riot-police (MAT) van, parked in front of the KINAL (ex PASOK political party) offices, and the motorcycle-police (DIAS forces) accompanying them during their shift-change. Our choice was totally targeted.
At a time when the government of New Democracy has unleashed a man-hunt against anyone who fights, at a time of evicting migrant’s and political-social spaces of struggle, at a time of the concrete abolition of the university’s asylum and the invasion of MAT and OPKE cops into the universities – at this time we chose to ambush the scum of the MAT and the lackeys of the DIAS forces and attack them from both sides with incendiary devices, destroying their motorbikes, injuring three of them, and simultaneously trying to burn the van parked on Eressou street.
This action took place inside the area of Exarchia so as to make clear that the continuation of the State’s repressive policy’s aggravation will receive equivalent answers. The result of our action just confirmed the validity of our act to – successfully – fight against the torturers of the Greek police: their random prosecutions, their attempts to invade the café on the square, their torture of combatants, their filling the neighbourhood with tear-gas.

ENGLISH:
On Friday 8th of November ’19 an extensive operation took place by the ‘counter-terrorist’ agency, in the context, as they said, of an investigation for a robbery, and the dismantling of terrorist organization Revolutionary Self-Defense. Three persons are arrested -of which one was set free- and it is announced that one more comrade is wanted as a member of the organization. In the meantime the iterrogations and the house raids continue. In this framework, squats, comrades and fighters of the anarchist, and social-class movement are targetted.
This operation is a significant step of the state on its way towards the modern day dictatorship which is already being imposed.

Τhe state attacked Bouboulinas 42 squat, where a community of 120+ migrants were living and fighting. The people were illegally transferred to a concentration camp. But they denied this abuse of power and almost all of them returned to Athens to collectively continue the struggle for survival.
The responsibility for this particular action is not only with the EL.AS. police army and their supervisors. The Ministry of Culture was the owner of the building on Bouboulinas, a building it had left empty for years now. It was yet another building that was used for the great and extravagant myth of the 2004 olympic games and left to its fate after the end of the spectacle. The culture of domination, racism, displacement, homelessness, and the breakup of poor communities is the true culture of the state, and this time it carries the stamp of the corresponding Ministry.

Greece: Poster against repression – “When they shout for clean neighborhoods, it smells of blood”

When they shout for clean neighborhoods,
it smells of blood
The blood of the migrants that are exiled to the concentration camps
after the eviction of the squats where they used to live and stand with
as much dignity as possible.
The blood at the borders, the seas, the working places, the cells and
the police stations, the blood of the damned that were trying to find a
solution for the dead ends of their daily survival.
The blood that paints red the streets and the pavements, the same
blood that paints red the cop’s glob or the fascist’s knife, the same
blood that arms the automatic guns of the full-armored cops who secure
the dominant order with their patrol-vans, or the carbine of the bosses
and the pacified owners who would kill in order to defend their sacred
property.
The blood that quietly soaks the red carpet that is rolled out for
investors and real-estate owners, for the sake of development, progress,
tourism, the nation: for the sake of capitalism. Continue Reading →

Nothing is over – arson attack on cars of Energie Steiermark in Graz , Austria

On the 9th of November two cars burned down and further cars were
damaged, all belonging to the austrian energy provider Energie
Steiermark in Graz. This company is, among others, responsible for the
construction of the Murkraftwerk, a waterpower plant in the Mur river in Graz, that had officially started up exactly one month ago.
There were protests against the construction and the launch of the plant for years. There were petitions. There were demonstrations. There were protest camps and tree houses in squatted trees to prevent the forest clearance of the area for the planned construction site. There were blockades of excavators, as the construction of the plant nevertheless began. And there were trials against activists.
The involved companies worked hard on getting democratic approval, by spending a lot on articles in newspapers, so called Dialogbüros, offices for dialogue and other crap.

Comments Off on Paris,France : A summary of the trail against Claudio Lavazza for bank robbery, that took place between the 4th and 8th of November 2019.

Paris,France : A summary of the trail against Claudio Lavazza for bank robbery, that took place between the 4th and 8th of November 2019.

Claudio Lavazza, rebel, anarchist, bank robber and gentleman, who during the ‘70s in Italy participated in the struggle against State and Capital, arms in hand. Contrary to the sinkers of subversion of those years, he never exchanged the desire to overthrow everything for a political career. Nor has he resigned, nor sought refuge in other States, which could have granted him a controlled freedom. No, he kept fighting, against winds and tides.
After 16 years on the run, never renouncing to his anarchist coherence, nor to the joy of living as a free man, in 1996 he is arrested after a bank robbery in Cordoba, Spain, during which three comrades, including Claudio, will be seriously injured and two policewomen will lose their lives. Claudio will thus be locked up in the special regime F.I.E.S., and even in this deadly place he will continue his battle with firmness and perseverance.
After serving 22 years in the Spanish dungeons, in the summer of 2018 he is extradited – on loan, since his sentence in Spain is not yet finished – toward France, to face trial for a bank robbery at the expense of the National Bank of Saint-Nazaire, which took place in 1986. For this robbery, he was already sentenced, in absentia, to 30 years of prison.
If going to take money where there is plenty is always a possibility, as a refusal to the blackmail of work and exploitation, in order to seize the necessary means to carry out a struggle against the State, back then, in Saint-Nazaire, the tightrope robbers did not just touch any safe. They expropriated the State’s vault! Lightning of almost 26 million euros the pockets of those who oil the gears of power.
Through countless smiles and strife, Claudio opened his path, even when faced with the most adverse conditions, when everything was to be built and imagined. As an anarchist, his passion is freedom; his enemy power. And there is no time to waste when one is armed with this conscience: it is up to each one of us to forge our own path, to undermine, harm, expropriate and destroy everything that belongs to power, its structures and its men.

Marseille Infos Autonomes / Tuesday 5 November 2019

New mail in the mailbox of the big game  On Va les Chercher Chez Eux  [Let’s Go Find Them At Home] this morning. A new target has been struck! Happy reading…
https://attaque.noblogs.org/files/2019/11/citya-1.png
As we’re leaning on the bars still open at this late hour of the night savouring our last sips of beer or liqueurs, or sitting outside our favourite snack bar, shadows appear in the dark. They seem to have a marked-out path, a well-defined goal, a mission. Driven by the same desire, in one move they take aim and let fly. Joy grabs them at the guts and they salivate with pleasure. They have joined in the Big Game. Cool.

The estate agency Citya Paradis isn’t exactly known for the quality of its service. With 2 895 439 € turnover in 2018, it is involved in the management of several buildings with Dangerous Building ordinances. More speculators who don’t hesitate to make money on the backs of their tenants. Have you heard of estate agents’ visits to several apartments in Noailles following the building collapses? The inhabitants were expecting (finally!) an evaluation of the work to be done to make their housing habitable. In fact, the scoundrels had only come on a business visit to take pictures of the view from the windows to assess the value of the place once the inhabitants are evicted, real works undertaken and a well-to-do population put in their place. Cynical… It’s no surprise that the collapses did not prevent the smooth running of their economic plan. With the agency’s turnover, it would be hard to give it the benefit of the doubt. Interference? No no no. Real contempt for our lives, our neighbourhoods, our needs.

Chile: The oasis still smells of burning – October 29, 30 and 31, 2019

In the middle of this Latin America full of convulsions, our country Chile is a true oasis” ,
Sebastián Piñera, October 8, 2019
These past three days, from Tuesday, October 29 to Thursday, October 31, the revolt in Chile has continued in a context where many counter-fires have been lit to bring it back to more reasonable paths. As the frontal shock of brute force with a state of emergency and a week’s night curfew didn’t suffice, now a strategy of encirclement is unfolding: on the one hand by opening the door wider to those who want to negotiate and reform the country (start of a possible process of revision of the Constitution, launching of a forthcoming French-style Great Debate, acceptance of reception of the opposition parties at La Moneda); on the other hand, by separating the peaceful wheat from the riotous chaff in the street (from the organisation of concerts in the squares to citizen assemblies and the dramatisation of certain attacks, all passing by the official condemnation of the mayhem by leaders of the left).
Faced with this, to give an idea of ​​the diffuse attacks, just take Tuesday: Molotov attack on the town hall of Quilpué (an 18-year-old incarcerated and a minor on judicial control), new looting and clashes in Concepción, not to mention the broken windows of the Ministry of Fisheries; premises of the Automóvil Club (driving school) in La Serena burned, looting of a Unimarc supermarket in Antofagasta, burning of the El Salto church in the Púa locality (Victoria) with a banner “Resistencia Mapuche” left next to it; ousting of the statue of the Spanish conquistador Pedro de Valdivia in Temuco and failed attempt on the same in Plaza de la Independencia in Concepción, and hammer and chisel against that of the slaughterer general Cornelio Saavedra in Plaza de Armas at Collipulli; the burning of seven construction machines and a truck belonging to Forestal Mininco in Capitán Pastene (Lumaco) claimed by the “Natchez Pelantaru” group of Coordinadora Arauco Malleco (CAM); temporary closure of the Bellavista metro station in La Florida following a massive new fraud of high school students; looting of the Líder hypermarket and the Mall in Coronel on Monday night; burning of a bank and shops in Quillota during a demonstration, as well as the burning of the municipal market (Feria Modelo del Parque Aconcagua) which destroyed 17 premises, but also the start of fire of the Easy company in the industrial zone; looting of the Open Plaza Mall in La Calera and the looting of the Scotiabank, in addition to blockades of Ruta 5 North and Ruta 60; numerous looting and ransackings of downtown Punta Arenas on Monday night; fire at Catillo toll at Parral ; blocking of Ruta 5 at Maullín in the Los Lagos area, preventing access to the island of Chiloe, and the burning of two toll booths; massive crowding at the police station in Calbuco and Puerto Montt, as well as at the prefecture of the latter; looting and partial burning of the residence of Senator Coloma (UDI, in power) in Talca; toll attack at Pelequen and San Fernando; sacking of the Post Office in Orsono during the demo; gatherings of 10,000 people in Santiago from Plaza Italia to the presidential palace of La Moneda, punctuated by clashes and looting (a Tricot store, an Ahumada pharmacy, a Unimarc supermarket and a Claro in the night, also burned), not to mention systematic fires at the entrance to the Baquedano Subway Station (which served as an unofficial torture centre during the state of emergency); plunder of two agencies of the AFPs (pension fund), annexes of the town hall in Valvidia, not to mention the hotel and casino Dreams which lost their windows during a riot of six hours …

The Local Kids – A compilation of texts, a contribution to a correspondence between those who desire anarchy and subversion. Issue 5 – Autumn 2019

Over the last decade we have been made witness to the naked brutality of power. In the four corners of the earth domination has displayed its capacity to wreck devastation without hesitation. Those who were just holding on to their last lines of dignity have been dragged down in the mud. Those who rose up to regain their dignity and fight for freedom, have been smothered and massacred. Not content with the daily administration of oppression, it seemed as if the rulers were aiming for a decisive victory by escalating their repressive violence.
They were mistaken. Instead of resignation, we are witnessing the resilience of those who want to live against all odds. The ruins that power left behind, as monuments to its scorched earth tactics and as a warning for the future, are in our hands the first stones of a new life. The cynical calculations of politicians, who are willing to sacrifice whole generations to uphold their political reign or their economical dogmas, have been erased by the unforeseen. An invisible line has been crossed; beyond this line humiliation is no longer tolerated. Where this line is drawn, and why there, is to remain unknown till it has been crossed. That there is a line is a certainty that the dominant forces wished to ignore.
