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.

by actforfreedom Comments Off on 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.
Yesterday afternoon [September 18, 2019] came the first notification of the closure of investigations of a file against 45 people, convicted of committing crimes during the season against militar bases between 2014 and 2017.
For some of them the accusations made by the Cagliari prosecutor’s office are of a “subversive association with the purpose of terrorism”, but for the most consistent part of the suspects they are mainly crimes related to street demonstrations.
For the alleged members of the subversive association the accusations of the prosecutor Pani are also of damage to various companies connected to the world of war (Vitrociset, RWM, Poste Italiane, Tirrenia), of having organized antimilitarist camps and of having made propaganda around a “subversive antimilitarism” around Sardinia and the peninsula.
On Friday, September 20, 2019, the notorious executioners of the Turin police headquarters went back to work directing their puppets in various cities to carry out three arrests, order 11 proibitions of abode and overturn several houses.
The charges are specific to this damn system.Having expressed anger and dissent over the arrests of comrades in Turin and against the eviction of Asilo Occupato [operation “Scintilla”, February 7, 2019] translates into the allegations of resistance, injury and damage [for the demonstration on February 9,in Turin].
20.09.19: According to the latest reports from Bulgarian media, antifascist comrade Jock Palfreeman, who was granted parole yesterday, has been released from Sofia Prison but transferred immediately to the Sofia Busmantsi Immigration Detention Centre (pictured in photo 3). According to the media this is because Comrade Jock does not have a valid passport or identity documents. He will remain at the detention centre until he receives a new passport. It is not clear whether he will then remain in Bulgaria or leave the country.
Comrade Jock was filmed and photographed being escorted from the prison by plainclothes officers to a waiting car. Comrade Jock yelled out to waiting reporters “Thanks to Desislav Traykov, Deputy Chief of Prison!” before being bustled into the vehicle. Desislav Traykov recently resigned from his post following a scandal involving a 16 year old drug trafficker.
Many sectors of the Bulgarian political elite are outraged at the release of Comrade Jock, however media reports indicate that the decision to grant Jock parole is final.
From the high security jail of Santiago de Chile I send these words of greeting to all who meet today in Villa Francia to share visions and experiences around the political prison.
The jail that I live in today is the same one that has taken more than 20 years of my life.
I arrived here at the age of 21, transferred from the former penitentiary at its inauguration on February 20, 1994, leading me in 2004 with the anti-jail fight started with Kamina Libre in 1996.
The KAS was then used to imprison and annihilate the military political subversion of the left. Rodríguistas, Miristas and Mapucistas lautarinos [members of MAPU-Lautaro, an armed left-wing group] were recipients of the perverse dirty war of the government of Aylwin and Frei that managed to defeat the armed projects embodied in the FPMR, the different MIR and the Mapu-Lautaro.
Una vez más, estamos organizando el evento de encuentro que realizamos anualmente en Montevideo. Se trata de la 8ª Feria del Libro Anarquista, que tendrá lugar el 1, 2 y 3 de noviembre en el Centro Social Cordón Norte. Espacio que está enfrentando un intento de desalojo que demuestra que la autoorganización, la solidaridad y la construcción por acción directa van en contra de los intereses capitalistas y del poder establecido.
Sabemos que los territorios donde convivimos constantemente están bajo las ambiciones y determinaciones del capital. Y no solo del capital sino también de las instituciones y organismos del Estado como coordinadores y protectores del poder económico-político.
Various institutions, environmental groups, trade unions and student groups gathering under the name “Fridays for Future” have announced a so-called “Week for Climate” from the 20th to the 27th of September. Basically this week consists of programmed and alienating demonstrations in which the State and other institutions (UN, G7 etc) are being asked to remedy or take action against the disaster they are causing. In their simplistic and reformist discourse they never criticize the cause of the ongoing devastation: industrial techno capitalism and its technocratic organization of the world.
They are the ones who criticize climate change without criticizing those who produce it: they have a corpse in their mouths, those who defend the myth of progress, of sustainable development and of a ‘comfortable’ life in exchange for slavery and the commodification of every aspect of our lives, a life sold to technological domination. They are the ones who have purchased the new fashionable product, climate change, from the supermarket of rebellion.
Fridays for Future? Today more than ever the future does not exist, we live in an eternal present and any vestige of the past has been erased. The technological prostheses that surround and colonize us make us live in a continuous state of sleepwalking, where the catastrophe is not about to come as they insist on warning us, the catastrophe is here and now, the catastrophe is the alienating life directed by the algorithms of our ‘virtual assistants’, the catastrophe is a world already devastated by industry.
While waiting for more updates, we learn from the regime’s press that this morning (September 20th, 2019) a police operation led by the Digos (“political police” force of the State police) of Turin led to 14 precautionary measures throughout Italy. The alleged crimes (according to what reported by the regime’s media: “aggravated injuries”, “resistance to a public official”, “damage” and “dirtying”) are related to the demonstration of February 9th, 2019, in Turin following the evction of Asilo Occupato, on February 7th in the context of the “Scintilla” repressive operation (for which, at present, only one comrade, Silvia, remains in prison).
On February 9th a march in response to the repressive operation moved through the streets of Turin, also trying to get closer to Asilo (completely surrounded by police and carabinieri, and meanwhile devastated by the police and the workers assigned to the closure of the building), to then turn in conflict against the city and against what daily frames the existence of the oppressed. During the demonstration, some people were arrested and later detained at the “Le Vallette” prison, and then released a few days later.

by actforfreedom Comments Off on Germany : We are sending love, strength and fire from Berlin to our fighting comrades in Exarcheia Athens!
Today 18th sep, around 10am, while our 4 comrades who got arrested on 14th sep in exarchia, were moved to evelpidon court to meet the prosecutor, a group of around 100 solidaritians gathered at building 9 of evelpidon court.
After a while, cops brought our 4 comrades to the building 9, while the solidaritians started to say slogans in front of the building in solidarity with them. Later, we as solidaritians decided to make a intervention and go all together inside the building, we did it so we found ability to speak with our 4 comrades mouth by mouth. 20 minutes later, MAT arrived and we left the building to out side.(video of intervention exist, which we will publish as soon as possible)
For a few weeks now the Exarchia district in Athens where many squats have existed for a long time, is facing a wave of unprecedented evictions. In Lille the prefecture also expels at every turn. A banner was hung this Monday morning above the peripherique of Lille to show our support for the Greek comrades.
From 7am to 2pm – Milano Congressi – Via Gattamelata 5
Trans-humanism is already here
Trans-humanism is not some eccentric researchers’ marginal tendency or a side effect of technological development; it is the logical outcome of the techno-scientific system.
The slogan of the meeting is: ‘Plan the future. Build the future. Be the future’. A future which is already becoming present. The logics of trans-humanism – overcoming all limits, making man better and more powerful, re-planning the living and making it artificial – are not mere abstract speculations, but they become researches, trans-genetic dreams, military drones, new apparatuses in smart cities, Medically Assisted Procreation and genetic editing.
Trans-humanism and the techno-scientific system produce imaginaries, desires, needs, they transform the world and our perception of reality.
The most prominent world directors and researchers come from Singularity University, one of the most important expressions of trans-humanism; some of them go on to join the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), one of the most important research universities in the world, DARPA, a USA Defence Department government agency for the development of new technologies, Google, Microsoft, to mention only a few…Among the major financiers of Singularity University are companies such as Google, certainly known for information technology but less known for its investments in genetic research.
Precisely in this convergence of high level sectors and research, a bunch of scientists, entrepreneurs, military men and politicians find their meeting point.
We don’t want to be machine men in a machine world!

by actforfreedom Comments Off on Contribution to the international meeting against the techno-sciences (Italy – July 2019) by anarchist Dinos Giagtzoglou, prisoner of the Greek state
I start this letter with a certainty. I am sure that our life experiences are very different as well as the starting points of the struggle of each and every one. I also think that with many of you we have different ideological origins and disagreements or contrasts on individual issues. But I firmly believe that the will to resist the plans of Domination, stemming from the awareness of the fundamental social alienation that alienates us from ourselves and nature as a whole, and the revolutionary passion for the destruction of the mega-machine of Power unite us in a common vision of a world free from the shackles of civilization. By going through a variety of analyzes, striding kilometer distances and eliminating in practice the language obstacles, since we recognize that there is the community of struggle for total liberation, we can really keep the flame of the revolt lit and the wager of the social revolution open. I therefore send a warm greeting to the Resistenze Al Nanomondo collective and to all the participants in the international meeting against the techno-sciences, expressing in advance my eagerness to fill the gaps in knowledge, that my absence will undoubtedly cause, by studying your reflections, your conclusions and everything you can get me through the actions and collaborations that will come from your fermentations in Italy.
But let’s take things in turn. For 21 months now, I have been pre-trial detained in the Greek prisons because I made the decision, like many fighters around the world, to realize my ideas by taking a battle position in the social war and fighting against power, here and now. So I am in prison because I put my ideas into practice beyond the limits of the law and certainly not by accident. With the firm conviction that the revolution will either be lawless or it will be nothing, I wanted to give a concrete example – in the first person and at present tense – of what revolutionary solidarity could mean, beyond the dipoles of innocence and guilt, of legality and illegality, by providing shelter to a persecuted comrade. That is why I am buried in tons of cement and iron, risking to be condemned for the “terrorist” attacks with booby-trapped letter envelopes on EU officials, executives of economic organizations and credit rating agencies sent in the spring of 2017, with which I have denied my correlation since my arrest, but the odds of my conviction for them remain high. Of course no one was found in prison simply because one decided to fight against oppression and exploitation. My current status is the actual proof that I made mistakes. Mistakes in some decisions I made in relation both to myself and to other individuals with whom I misguidedly felt we have been sharing a common struggle. Mistakes that cost dozens of years of imprisonment, mistakes that may be unforgivable, but certainly neither them nor prison itself can cancel my permanent determination for struggle, struggle, struggle… under any circumstances. So I can only breathe through the endeavors of the comrades who are outside the walls and continue the struggle. I want to support such efforts because through them I am inspiring and essentially exist, I live for them! And so I see these three days too.
In the early hours of September 3, 2019, all of the prisoners on a small mink farm in Hölkemåla, Blekinge, Sweden, escaped from the cages. In total about 1500 persons managed to get free.
We gave a helping hand by disassembling the fence of the farm and then opening all the cage doors. We removed parts of the fence using a wrench to ensure a way out. The fur farm was situated right next to a lake where we hope that as many as possible now get to live.
In a world where freedom exists only in moments of rebellion and insurrection, we still think that the possibility of a life in the forest and lake is quite the opposite of that in a cage. We do recognize that the already destroyed eco-systems and colonised nature is nothing like a dream, but since it is all that we have it is where we will go from our imprisoned existences. A passion for freedom is what drove us to this hidden killing facility to increase the freedom for all of us. Our desire to share this moment of freedom with the minks is rooted in solidarity and love as well as anger and hatred towards those who dominate us and try to steal our lives.
We strongly believe that there is no limit to the things we can do, all we need is to make up our minds and pick a target.
We send our love to Eric King, Matthias in Switzerland and all other prisoners around the world!
