Montreal – A CN Rail Signaling Box Goes Up in Smoke

In the night from Sunday to Monday, an electrical signaling box located along the CN rail line in Pointe-St-Charles was burned. We hope that traffic will be interrupted again and for as long as possible. We targeted the rails not only because they are the colonial infrastructure par excellence, but also because the majority of natural resources are moved by train. We give a warm salute to all those fighting extractivism and domination: the mines that destroy the land (even the lithium mines needed for the production of electric car batteries), the extraction and transportation of oil and natural gas, the devastation of forests, from one side of the country to the other.
We want freedom, dignity, self-determination and a healthy life – for everyone and without concession.

Athens,Greece: We call for an open assembly to empower the anti-speciesist movement and to organize actions, on Sunday 01/03/20 at 18:00, Polytechnio – Gini building

We call for an open assembly to empower the anti-speciesist movement and to organize actions, with the aim of ending the exploitation and use of non-human animals as food, clothing, breeding machines and generally as means for profit.
The regularity of anthropocentric society includes the daily slaughter of millions of animals, the contamination of sea waters, the destruction of habitats for industrial needs, and the plundering of land in the context of capitalist development. From the production of palm oil that brings about the indirect or direct killing of orangutans, the fires of the Amazon a few months ago, and from wind farms and green development to fires in Siberia and now Australia. Non-human animals are the main victims affected immeasurably.
Recently ,we also saw revenge killing and boxing of alive non-human animals in evacuated buildings, forcibly removed from their comrades, losing their housing, to be transferred to the City Detention Centers. In a conjucture, where the state and the anthropocentric society are built beyond the standard practices of extermination and exploitation, (slaughterhouses, breeding grounds, experiment laboratories, pet shops, hunting on land and sea, depredation of nature, confinement-bourgeoises’ amusement parks), through the repressive campaign, they target non-human animals in addition to human animals.

EN/ES/FR/IT– Request for financial support for the legal defense of Anarchist comrade Gabriel Pombo Da Silva

Our comrade Gabriel, arrested on January 25 in Portugal, is still locked in the cells of the judiciary of Porto waiting for a possible extradition. The second part of the trial started on 27 January. It still hasn’t begun yet, but it will take place in the next few days. Until we notify otherwise, the contact address for writing letters of support and solidarity to Gabriel remains the same.
Gabriel Pombo Da Silva
EPPJ Porto
Rua Assis Vaz,
109 4200-096 Porto
-Portugal-.
Whilst awaiting more news, his lawyer – who is in solidarity with Gabriel – has anticipated that the amount necessary for the defense will be considerable. You need to rely on and pay punctually those professionals with whom you are obliged to work; and we cannot act without the competing lawyers from Portugal and most likely from Germany.
Therefore, a constant amount of money is urgently needed to manage all the bureaucracy that involves the administrations of justice from three different countries (Spanish State, Germany and Portugal).
Currently the legal situation is as follows:
The Girona prosecutor’s office intends that Gabriel spends another 16 years in jail due to the interpretation of a fusion of non-existent penalties. This denies a special principle (one of the legal reasons why it was possible that Gabriel was released in June 2016), which must be claimed by Germany at the request of Portugal, if optionally, they consider it appropriate.

Russia: Anarchist Nikita Emelyanov

Никита ЕмельяновYemelyanov studied at the Belarus National Technical University in the 3rd year, worked as a courier after study. He was detained on October 20, 2019, together with an accomplice on suspicion of an attempt to set fire to Minsk remand prison- SIZO1. The action was held in solidarity with political prisoners. He was convicted by judge Alexander Yakunchikhin for 7 years in a reinforced regime colony.
Yemelyanov came to anarchism gradually, having evolved from a social democrat with a brief stop on the left-leaning nationalist ideas. He was an administrator of the”Chorny Supracivus” telegram channel.

Comments Off on Russia:The Dark Side of the Network Case

Russia:The Dark Side of the Network Case

We have written about our attitude to the Network case and related contradictions before. Since then, nothing has changed for the better. Participants chose the role of typical victims of the regime, remaining indistinguishable from the rest of the same. This was more convenient for parents, human rights activists, and liberal circles shouting about the new 1937. The trial of the Penza group ended, and the defendants received huge sentences, from 6 to 18 years.
Worst of all, the public played along with the authorities. The FSB was trying to prove the crime of an anarchist conspiracy, while the public was passionately denying the very existence of an anarchist organization, not challenging its “criminality “. However, in this case, the very existence of the anarchist underground was of the greatest value, giving meaning to the cruel punishment that was taking place: at least someone dared to challenge this hated authority. Who knows, if the guys had taken an active position of the anarchist underground participants, the authorities might not have dared to popularize them with such huge terms.

Athens,Greece: TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR SETTING CARS ON FIRE IN PHILOPAPPOU HILL NEAR KOUKAKI AREA

Four VIP van (Tourist small taxis buses) arsons took place in the early hours of Wednesday in Koukaki, near Philopappou Hill.
We carried out this attack as retaliation and a sign of solidarity with the people who were beaten and arrested by the forces of State repression during the reoccupation of the squats in Koukaki as well in solidarity with those arrested after the buildings were recaptured.
Thetarget was selected near the squats firstly to remind to the cops that no matter how hard they try they can’t protect neighbourhoods from black-hooded people and secondly because these vehicles exist only to serve tourists and the tourism industry.
“There is a right to the brick.
There is a right on the stick.
There is a right to Molotovs in Exarchia, or anywhere.
There is a right to car arson.
There is a right to armed struggle.
There is a right to revolt and liberation from slavery. “

Thessaloniki, Greece: Taking responsibility for destroy security cameras

“Between idea and reality,
between movement and action,

the shadow falls. “

The control society is sowing surveillance “eyes” in every neighbourhood. We will be meeting up to destroy them so that we can move freely and flexibly on the roads and narrow streets of the cities, observing and not being observed.
In a system of generalised surveillance, on the one hand, the overseers of normality are ubiquitous in supervising and enforcing order. They prevent its “disruption” with ever more updated security measures (cameras, alarms, radio transmitters). They watch insubordinates until they pick up some “wrong” move then build their criminal profile. On the other hand, individuals internalize this control over their lives gradually resulting in the automation of authority’s mechanism as everyone submits to a watchful fixed visibility against them.
In the face of generalized control we will disperse our action uncontrollably.

On February 14th, the notice of conclusion of the preliminary investigation for the repressive operation called Prometeo (“Prometheus”) that led to the arrest of Natascia, Robert and Beppe was served (for all previous updates you can see this link). After 20 days from the notification, the prosecutor will evaluate how to proceed and will set a preliminary hearing.
Yesterday’s news, however, that the request for house arrest as an alternative to custody in prison, submitted by Natascia’s lawyers, was unfortunately rejected. The lawyers will have until 28 February to challenge the rejection and appeal.
Appeal to comrades, people in solidarity and affinity for widespread solidarity:
We ask the support of comrades, people in solidarity and affinity for widespread solidarity. Prison and legal expenses do not stop, let’s not do it either! To contribute financially you can use the following coordinates:

Santiago, $hile: Communique From An Anonymous Anarcho-Nihilist Comrade in Prison

Words of a prisoner in revolt, from Santiago. 1, Module 14, accused of throwing an incendiary device.
As an anarcho-nihilist individualist I write these words from a prison in the $hilean territory, already in my first month in prison I have been able to reaffirm my position as anti-prison and stubbornly unmanageable in front of the whole machinery and framework that tries to make you part of it.
Nowadays while the flame of the insurrection is still burning and continues with great force in different parts of the world and in this same territory, it is important to remain firm despite all the consequences that our actions bring. Nothing we do is in vain, but always being attentive especially in these moments, to where each time our enemies are becoming more and more professional, that it is of relevance that we also do so too and continue positioning ourselves even more in the realities that we live, going hand in hand with self-care, making it part of ourselves and throwing us on the path to which each one of us decided to take.

The anti-prison week is in less than a month! It will happen from 2 to 8 march 2020 in the old train station of Luméville, close to Bure, place of a struggle against a project of a center for burrying nuclear waste.

The idea is to take time to meet, between people and groups from different countries, have formal and informal times of discussions, workshops, movie screenings, readings. You can come to the week with your own proposals, with or without telling us in advance. Zine distros are also very welcome.

We received criticisms regarding the lack of topics related to racism in prison and state racism in the program of the week, considering the key role that racism play in penitentiary systems. We would like to make more space for these topics, so if you think you have something to contribute on these topics, please contact us. Continue Reading →

Russia : A Call for Solidarity Actions on February 22-29-20

We must not forget the anarchists and anti-fascists suffering repression in Russia! We are calling for people to take action of all forms to express support for these prisoners, to protest the prison system, and to spread information about the use of torture as an instrument of repression in Russia.
Why now? On 10th February, 630 kilometers from Moscow, the court in Penza passed sentence on seven people accused of organizing the so-called “anarchist terrorist community ‘Network’”. This entire case is based on confessions the defendants were forced to agree to via intense torture as well as weapons planted by police and an extremely tenuous accusation that they were “planning to plan terrorist actions to overthrow the government of Russia”. For a “crime” without victims involving no real action and no real plan, the sentences decreed by the court are shockingly high. Dmitry Pchelintsev and Ilya Shakursky, the supposed organizers of this fabricated “Network,” were sentenced to 18 years and 16 years in prison, respectively. The others have been sentenced as follows: Arman Sagynbaev 6 years, Andrei Chernov 14 years, Vasily Kuksov 9 years, Mikhail Kulkov 10 years, and Maxim Ivankin 13 years of imprisonment.

Limoges, France: Sabotage against Enedis (11/02/2020)
You

we
do not want to know about your big business
industrial wind farms or very high voltage mega transformers
You
destroy trees, forests
You
are destroying the world
we
don’t want nuclear power
we don’t want Linky, big data, or big brother
We

You

(from sabot : wooden shoe … in the factory, it is said of the damage caused to machines by those shoes)
[ “Linky” are the telematic electric meters that Enedis is installing in every French house, whichproduce dangerous electromagnetic waves and allow instantaneous control of electricity consumption – therefore a tout court control of some aspects of our lives ].
Translator’s note: On the night between Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 February [2020], five vehicles of Enedis (branch of Eléctricité de France which deals with the distribution of electricity) were set on fire, in Limoges. Three others are burned by spreading the flames, for a total of 400,000 euros’ damage (apparently one of the vehicles was a special machine). An inscription on a wall was found on the spot, but the police did not disclose its contents. In the afternoon the claim came to a local newspaper and La Bogue, the “cooperative information and struggle site” in the area.
Still in Limoges, in January 2016, seven trucks of Eurovia, branch of the cement giant Vinci *, had been set on fire. Then, in September 2019, while the trial was being held in Paris against some people accused of setting fire to a cop car during a demonstration, three vans and two Gendarmerie buses ended up in smoke.. A comrade, accused of this fire, has had a year of preventive detention and has been on probation for almost a year (obligation to reside in a specific city, with an electronic bracelet).. In October of the same year, about twenty Enedis vehicles had already been burned.
