Italy : Update concerning anarchists imprisoned in operations “Scintilla” and “Renata”

Some comrades arrested on 19.02.2019 in Trentino during the repressive operation “Renata” have been transferred to other prisons (Ferrara, Rome Rebibbia and Tolmezzo, where Giulio and Stecco are already imprisoned). We remember that the main accusations against them are “attack with the purpose of terrorism” (article 280 of the penal code) and, not for all the comrades, to have constituted or participated in a “subversive association with the purpose of terrorism or subversion of the democratic order” (article 270 bis of the penal code).
Here are the updated addresses:

Agnese Trentin
C. C. di Rebibbia femminile
via Bartolo Longo 92
00156 Roma
Italia (Italy)

Roberto Bottamedi, Luca Dolce (“Stecco”), Giulio Berdusco
Casa Circondariale
via Paluzza 77
33028 Tolmezzo (Ud)
Italy

Nicola Briganti, Andrea Parolari
C. C. di Ferrara
via Arginone 327

Italy

While Niccolò, arrested on 7.02.2019 in Turin as part of the “Scintilla” repressive operation, who for some days had not been in the AS2 (“high security 2”) section of Ferrara prison but in a “normal” section, was transferred  on 19.03.2019 to Ivrea prison (in the province of Turin). We recall that they are no longer accused of having established or participated in a “subversive association” (article 270 of the penal code), but on charges related to specific facts.
Here are the updated addresses:

Niccolò Blasi
Corso Vercelli 165

Comments Off on Montreal : Notes on Our March 15th Against the Police

Montreal : Notes on Our March 15th Against the Police

Anonymous submission to MTL Counter-info
I want to remember how it felt to be shook by the beauty of the crowd. Fear and anxiety dissipate as a hundred-strong black bloc takes the street, realizing its collective power that compels police units to maintain a safe distance. It’s happening. We can do this.
Attacking luxury cars, hotels, and banks when the police have been made unable to defend them is an attack on the police, which depends on the perception that it can maintain law and order to be respected by good citizens and feared by the excluded. A call-and-response of shattering glass echoes down Peel Street, as projectiles fly at bank windows in quick succession. Not to worry, several rocks, flares, and at least one decent firework are reserved for the SPVM.
Spontaneity works pretty well sometimes, and it’s cool when people roll a dumpster out of an alley, someone else drops a flare in it to start a small fire, an “ACAB” gets tagged on the front, and others decide to charge with it at some cops up ahead, all in the span of sixty seconds, as though carefully choreographed. Our time together is limited, yet expansive.

Free and dangerous by Elisa and Gabriel. EN/SP/IT


  Ardire, Scripta Manent, Operation Buyo … Do they mean anything to you? These are only a few of the police judicial “operations” that our “clan” has lived on its own skin for being and remaining anarchists to the extreme consequence.We are a nomadic clan that goes from country to country in search of accomplices who practice anarchism without asking for approval or consensus, who act without worrying about the “politically correct” discourse (so much in vogue in our times) that haunts our little shops today. We are also not interested in “aesthetics”, but “ethics”, the practical, the real…
  We are looking for an anarchism that dirties our hands, keeps us awake and always on guard (as opposed to any complacency); this anarchism that is not liked by and disturbs the servants of the State, who have not abandoned their efforts to imprison us.
  It is not easy to go from one place to another. It’s even more difficult along with our daughter, that little beauty we called Iraultza, and a canine companion that we will never fail to take with us, because she is an integral part of our clan.
     Apparently, the Spanish State has not stopped wanting to put me in prison for a “residual sentence” that exists only in its putrid mind and its disgusting papers.

Italy : Anarchist comrade Gioacchino Somma’s final declaration to the court of the trial of ”Scripta Manent” in Turin

Grizzlyft
Today, two years since the beginning of this trial in which I am accused along with the others, my anarchist comrades, brothers and sisters, and after letting this public prosecutor with an unsurprisingly sick imagination talk, I reiterate all the more forcefully that I am anarchist, individualist and for insurrection.
Having read thousands of pages of court papers written by various Neapolitan and Turin prosecutors, I am now even more convinced that sometimes it’s better to be in judicial trouble than to think the way you do.
I stick closely to my ideas that you don’t like because are for the destruction of everything that has to do with your miserable world.
If it had been up to me, I wouldn’t have been born at all, but others decided for me so I have no other choice than to be in this world my own way.  I shall never belong to the herd that you assign a path for grazing to…
I am different, I prefer to elude paths and go with the wolves.
Guilty or innocent?

Munich, Germany : Siemens attacked in solidarity with the imprisoned in Turin and Zurich

The first of March 2019, two Siemens vehicles were burnt in east Munich.
Total destruction.

The role of Siemens has already been mentioned in detail in other circumstances.
[1]

Against war, borders, domination and exploitation.
Strength and courage to the arrested in Turin and Zurich.


[Translated from German from  Deutschland Indymedia, 09.03.2019]

NdT:

[1] Various communiqués have already talked about the activities of siemens, which is involved in the technology of control, surveillance and war. One of them claims among others the burning of a Siemens vehicle on December 16 2018 in  Basel,  pointing out that « Throughout its history, of its collaboration with national-socialism to the manufacture of war and control equipment  going through the development of so-called  « smart» technologies, Siemens has always been in the sights of insurgents..
Technological progress is anything but a neutral process but rather the next stage of the history of capitalist expropriation .
Another claims the burning of « wagon of the pigs of Siemens » December 1, 2017 in Leipzig, while a conference of Ministers of the Interior was being held : « […] It was fatal for it to develop monitoring technologies, and in particular to provide them to dictatorships all over the world, but also to support projects in Germany that want to turn cities into Smart Cities. Thus, it also participates in organized surveillance and the advent of technology. […] »

Sardinia, Italy : Sos sinnos [the signs] of solidarity

Repression against comrades is increasingly taking the characteristics of witch hunts, fascist raids and the 1970s.
First in Turin then in Trentino and Cagliari the claws of the new pacificatory order have tightened on the flesh of our comrades, of those who think it is imperative to take a stance in the face of the current authoritarian, security and exploitative trends.

Comments Off on Zurich, Switzerland : Two letters from the anarchist comrade imprisoned since January 29

Zurich, Switzerland : Two letters from the anarchist comrade imprisoned since January 29

1st March 2019, Zurich prison
Dear comrades, dear friends
It has been a month since I was forced to stop by an unmarked car on my way to work on the 29th of January, just as I was cycling from Langstrasse to Josefstrasse, and was ambushed from behind by two other plainclothes police on bicycles. There was a woman among them whom I remember had followed me to my house not long ago. Then, along with about 15 other uninvited guests we left for one last visit to my flat, my car and the anarchist library where, among other things, electronic data equipment and documents were seized.
Now I have landed in this other dimension consisting of narrow rooms, block furniture, long corridors, bars, again and still more bars and steel doors, whose opening and shutting dictate the rhythm of daily life. Only a few hundred metres away from familiar places and people, separated by the violence of a whole society that prefers a regime of walls and laws to the reign of freedom and conscience.
Outside, we may dream, experiment, rebel from injured dignity in the face of the disgracefulness on which this world is based. Gradually our experiences and insights interweave into an overall view and we face the conditions of domination in thought and in action in order to free ourselves, constantly rejecting the catalogue of pre-established models, including anarchist ones. That’s how, as a matter of course, a revolutionary project unfolds within us in which theory and action constantly challenge and intermingle, we feel ourselves grow and think we can almost take on the world, and yet bang !, in an instant everything can be reduced to a few square metres. Every anarchist knows this and always has it more or less present somewhere in the back of their mind.

Ukraine: In Kiev anarchists shot at the windows of Goloseyevsky court

On the morning of March 12, 2019, the police reported on the attack on the court.
The day before, we – the anarchists of Kiev, held an action of solidarity with the anarchist Azat Miftakhov detained in Moscow.
Once in prison, in the clutches of the punitive system, our comrades should be aware of the support, which is usually expressed in the form of concerts, pickets, letters… But more important is the confidence that their cause continues to live, confidence in the justification and consistency of their struggle. We do not care about Azat’s involvement in explosives and other episodes, because anyone who calls himself an anarchist is already guilty, and deserves punishment from the point of view of the state.

Genoa, Italy : F. Ferrer Library opening times 2019

From Monday 4th February and subsequently in continuity from Tuesday 19th February the Library will be open again. You’ll find the days and opening times for the year 2019 at the bottom of the page, in the home page of the website (bibliotecalibertariaferrer.org) or by clicking the designated button. 
Updates on the library’s calendar of appointments and initiatives will follow shortly.
The website and database are being updated and adjusted. Something will surely be missing, probably also in the coming months in terms of accessibility/availability; but be patient, we are not experts in the marvels of information technology and hi-tech, we are just self-taught persons.
It will also happen sometimes that we won’t be able to update the ‘news and previews’ section of the website in time, in order to communicate that the Library is to be closed on a given day or that it will have different opening times.

Greece: Revolutionary Struggle Statement: Lambros Foundas Is Immortal

March 10, 2019
On March 10th, 2010, Revolutionary Struggle was first struck:
Comrade Lambros Foundas fell dead from a cop’s bullet during the expropriation of a vehicle. He fell dead during a time of preparation for Revolutionary Struggle, which constituted the continuation of the organization’s action against the crisis, against capitalism and the state itself, against the policies of the system, which were formed by the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the IMF on the same days. It was an act of opposition to the burdens of borrowing contracts (memoranda) which, two months after his death, were imposed by the supranational economic and political power. It was an action-response to the fascist extortion imposed by the Greek political and economic power: “Memoranda or Destruction.” It was an answer to the dilemma of “salvation of the system or salvation of the social majority.”
To this dilemma, our companion Lambros Fountas and everyone in Revolutionary Struggle had already answered: the only response to the crisis is Social Revolution.

Graz, Austria: Car of Sodexo set on fire

In the darkness of the 6th of march we set a car of the company Sodexo in Graz on fire. Sodexo makes a profit with the deportation system by delivering shitty food to deportation centers. All companies that profit from this industry are our enemies and just deserve our hatred.
We feel connected to all accomplices who are fighting against the domination in this world.
Above all, those behind bars and those who support them, we want to show our revolutionary solidarity through this fire!
Through the walls we specifically send a burning hug to all recently detained anarchists in Turin, Trento and Rovereto. SILVIA, NICCOLO, BEPPE, ANTONIO, STECCO, RUPERT, AGNESE, SASHA, POZA, NICO, GIULIO tutti liberi!
We also send a burning greeting through the bars to Loić! We hope that you will feel supported by such acts in your unbending attitude.
For this action, we used fire accelerators that we filled into emptied beverage cans. We put the cans on the floor under the tires of the car. After 5 to 10 minutes, the tires burn and the car flares off.
Fire to Sodexo!
Fire to all cages!

During the anti-anarchist maxi-operation of February 19 and the days that followed, some things happened which should be made public, without whining or victimization.
During last Tuesday’s raids, one of the arrested comrades was forced to kneel by a carabiniere or policeman pointing a gun at his head.
During another raid police tried to get into a basement before waking comrades in their home, then secretly complained that they hadn’t managed to hide what they had intended.
