Chillán, Chile: An explosive device at the headquarters of the Chilean police was deactivated a few hours before the arrival of President Piñera (August 20, 2019)

 During the early hours of August 20, 2019, in Chillán, a suspicious object attracted the attention of the security device implemented pending the visit of President Sebastián Piñera.
Outside the main investigative barracks of the PDI (“Policía de Investigaciones de Chile”, which together with the Carabineros de Chile is one of the two police bodies of the Chilean State), located in Vega de Saldías, and which borders a police headquarters located in the center of Chillán, an explosive device was deposited without initially arousing suspicion.

15 septembre 2019 Avis de tempêtes #21

Avis de tempêtes – bulletin anarchiste pour la guerre sociale n°21
(septembre 2019) vient de sortir.

Pour lire, imprimer et diffuser ce petit bulletin autour de soi (il est en format A5, et celui-ci fait 20 pages), on pourra retrouver chaque nouveau numéro tous les 15 du mois, ainsi que les précédents, sur le blog :

https://avisdetempetes.noblogs.org

“Ce qui compte, c’est que tout puisse continuer comme avant. Que la production augmente, que les profits se réalisent. D’ailleurs, quitte à ce que cette société fasse naufrage, il n’est tout simplement pas possible de se passer de pesticides pour maintenir l’existant :

l’agriculture industrielle a déjà tellement transformé, pollué et
appauvri les sols que rien n’y pousse plus à grande échelle sans engrais synthétiques et sans chimie pour protéger les plantes contre les mille maladies et parasites… qui sont eux-mêmes, en grande partie, créés par la résistance que les organismes tendent naturellement à développer contre ce qui les tue. C’est un cercle vicieux, mieux, c’est le fameux train qui avance à toute allure droit vers le gouffre. Discuter à propos des 3, 5 ou 10 mètres, est alors vraiment le détail hypocrite de la montagne de poisons industriels qu’ils font couler dans nos veines et nos bronches.”

Difusión y agitación por el compañero Joaquín García

PDF
Algunas palabras previas
El compañero Joaquín García permanece en prisión desde noviembre del 2015, acusado de un atentado contra la policía. En este breve díptico buscamos no solo informar sobre su situación sino también agitar y aportar a fortalecer una solidaridad de combate.
Observar y reflexionar sobre los cambios en la maquinaria represiva nos permite ver como el aplicar la nefasta ley de control de armas puede ser más provechoso en la imposición de castigos que la Ley Antiterrorista a la hora de desarticular las prácticas ofensivas antiautoritarias.
Desde adentro de los muros de la cárcel, el compañero ha transitado y caminado con dignidad revolucionaria buscando aportar a debates “afuera” sin claudicar en las posiciones anárquicas y antiautoritarias.
El llamado sigue siendo a no convertirse en un espectador de la situación de lxs compañerxs en prisión, sino que tomar en nuestras manos las posibilidades de agitar y dar forma a una solidaridad de ataque, ofensiva e insurrecta.
Es esta solidaridad la que muestra nuestro potencial entre compañerxs conocidxs o no, que entrecruzada con la arista anticarcelaria eleva las posibilidades de crítica, comprensión y arremetida contra el dominio. Porque tan urgente como destruir los muros carcelarios, es desmantelar completamente las dinámicas que los rodean.
Forjando complicidades y fortaleciendo una multiforme praxis ofensiva nuestra solidaridad será inquebrantable.
Porque olvidar a lxs prisionerxs de la guerra, es olvidar a la guerra misma….
Joaquín García: A la calle!
Nada ha acabado
Todo continúa…

Italy: “Prometeo” operation – An update about Giuseppe (September 13th, 2019)

In recent weeks, as already written, Beppe was transferred from the AS2 [“High Surveillance 2”] section of the Rossano Calabro prison to the Pavia prison.
The interview with the lawyer showed that he is in the protected section, where there are collaborators of justice, former law enforcement officers, sex offenders and trans and homosexual prisoners (who have explicitly requested to be among the protected). Beppe had requested to be transferred from the Rossano AS2, where the vast majority of prisoners are Islamic, due to incompatibility and had also requested an approach to his home, thus indicating the AS2 sections of the north-center of Italy where there are currently anarchist comrades.
The provocative response to his request was the transfer to the protected section of the Pavia prison. Let’s not leave him alone!

Athens, Greece : About my abduction by state security police on 26/8, the threats of penal extermination and the drug war of authority.

“They’ve got something to tell you upstairs”
Monday, 26th of August at 10 in the morning, some hours after the police invasion into the anarchist squat GARE, the migrant housing squats Sp. Trikoupi 17 and 15, and in the building where Rosa de Foc squat was housed in the past, in Exarchia. Coming out of Bouboulinas squat, where I had entered half hour before –the building which had been reoccupied last May by the Self-organized Community of Squatters, Migrants and Internationalist Comrades,
which was born out of the Ground of Occupied Gini, following the last barrage of squat evictions by the syriza government against migrant squats and one feminist squat- I am surrounded by four cops who ask me if I am I, by my name. One of them, whom I recognized from my imposed frequent signings on at the police station, part of many years of suspended captivity, turned to me and says in a friendly manner: -They’ve got something to tell you upstairs. Shortly after, I am transferred, handcuffed, to the police hq, by an opke (heavily armed unit) squad.
It was certain that they wouldn’t ask me any questions. They would not expect to find out anything. The interrogation threats and the tortures have been curbed years now, by the stamina and perseverance of the fighters who get arrested and by the response of the movement. Neither did they intend to make suggestions, give me “alternative options”, negotiate some capitulation (methods that the state experiments on with its opponents).
After years of arrests, trials, different kinds of suspended captivity, constant tete a tete with the bastards of the repressive mechanisms, they would not waste their time talking. For one hour I remained sat on the bench, on that familiar to so many comrades corridor of the ‘state security police’ on the 6th floor, along with the three arrestees from GARE, who were not allowed to contact a lawyer since the cops would not announce their arrest, and five migrants from Sp.Trikoupi who were led to court the following day on heavy charges. Nonetheless, they had something to “tell” me, “tell” us upstairs.
A civil cop calls me: -Come with me.
-Where are we going?
-For an investigation
-What investigation and where?
-I don’t know. The prosecutor knows.
We return to Exarchia, a convoy of civil cops and opke. They park and we get off on Ippokratous near the corner with Kallidromiou. The parading circus, with me in the middle, goes into the pedestrian street Methonis. Twenty meters down the way, a civil cop points to an abandoned university building (probable option for a squat). It must be this one.
At the same time a suit turns up. I immediately turn to him.
-You are the prosecutor?
-Yes.
-Whats going on? Why am I here?
-There is a report that you are hiding drugs and weapons in this building.
It doesn’t take much to realize, in this sequence of events, that what they are trying on you is a repressive method without precedent in the forty five years of veiled dictatorship. A scenario with unlimited options. My abduction, on this particular scenario, is a clear message to all those who fight against the state: “We can trap you whenever we decide, pin whatever charges we want on you, bury you in the prisons, eliminate you from the social field, physically and as political subjects.” Here is what they had to tell us upstairs, at the political cadres of repression.
The show continued as an ekam team (special operations unit) raided the abandoned building, followed by the rest of them, civil cops, the prosecutor, opke. I said to the prosecutor that their scenario is unreal and that the only way they would find anything is if they have planted it themselves. Then they announced that there would be an investigation also in my home. The “investigation” in the abandoned building “was completed without any findings”. Afterwards the show continued at my home, which they have raided twice before. After the end of the investigation, from which certainly no one expected to reap the results anticipated by the media, “drugs and weapons”, the prosecutor gave the order to uncuff me. The parading show was rounded up as if nothing had happened.
From this leap that the state made, the threat of planting drugs and weapons on fighters and squats with a legal stamp, to the next step, the materialization of this threat, the distance is minuscule. Within the evolving conflict in the ground of Exarchia and the squats front, this event disappears, it is registered as yet another legally arbitrary and politically targeted investigation in a comrade’s home. It is crucial not to lose the significance of this particular event. What is unfolding is a political method of penal, militaristic and even paramilitary annihilation, familiar from parts of the planet and from recent history where counter-insurgent terrorism has become totally bold.
The pre-trial detention of ex-political prisoner Christoforos Kortesis and the persecution of unionists on charges of “robbery”, on the occasion of a common and daily social practice of appropriating basic goods, had already marked the turn of the state towards the unpretentious physical and political annihilation of fighters. The boundless stretch of legal terms, also to the opposite direction, as confirmed by the court decision to release the murderer of Alecis Grigoropoulos, aims to become the new institutional form of repression, at a time when the new penal code of syriza (reinforced by new democracy) provides for mass incarceration (obligatory prison sentence) as a measure of subjugation of the movement and of social discipline (‘little’ prison time for a lot of people).
In the current conditions of radical militarization of the greek (and of every state), and of total devaluation of political representation, the only trench against the implementation of such and other, paramilitary, methods is the power of resistance and of solidarity. The state has shed all pretenses. The only thing they consider is the insurrection that they will inevitably be faced with. The movement needs to acknowledge the evolving conditions of the conflict. Let nothing take us by surprise. The threats of the state should be returned to their sender, thereby confirming their fears. Let’s freeze the designs of the state and the bosses by our unexpected mobilization.
Let the brainless dictators keep trying. We will not abandon the centers of struggle, we will not live head down, with cops in every corner and inside our homes, we will no perish in poverty and in their terrorism. We will fight for anarchy, in all times.
Anarchists? Drugs! Drugs in the squats. Drugs in Exarchia. Drugs in the universities. Drugs in Omonoia. Drugs in the camps. Drugs in the neighborhoods. Drugs, drugs, drugs!
The practice of dressing up the political and social repression with the pretext of drugs is not merely a tactic for slandering, depoliticizing and demonizing the enemies of the state. The “war (against) of drugs” is, for decades now, the dominant strategy as much in terms of repression as in financial hegemony, globally. On the one hand, it aims at the fragmentation and annihilation of the excluded, at the militarization of the social ground, at the isolation and elimination of social movements. On the other hand, it serves the flow of private funds into the banks of the monopolies at the top (constant primary accumulation), the over-concentration of profits into shady business networks, and their unhindered transfer and investment. The drugs war funds the state and para-state militarism directly (covert war and counter-insurgency campaigns), and indirectly (official counter-criminality campaigns that flood state and private money into the police-military organs).
The favelas of brazil and the ghettos of the usa, which are bombarded with chemical drugs and shot at by the cops, the fighters who are murdered by mafia paramilitaries in mexico and elsewhere, in the forests and rivers of latin america, the “counter-drugs” guerrilla war in Colombia, the related interventions by the usa, these are not distant situations. Here also, it is the fat cats, the media lords, the drug barons and the big sponsors of the state and especially of the police and army, who govern the place. Xrisochoidis, who voted for the memorandum agreements even though he “never had the time to read through them”, never heard about the impounded tones of drugs which the customs neglected to record, never heard about serial murders of witnesses and about court cases that have mysteriously got stuck, which implicate big industry owners, the ones who control the mainstream flow of information and appoint mayors. He never heard, just like his predecessors in the ministry of state terrorism, that the distribution of drugs in the greek territory is entirely controlled by cops, that everyone in their ranks get a monthly share of the black market proceeds, that the greek prisons, which will now come under the supervision of the police force, are controlled through drugs throughout the past two decades.
The barons and their institutional servants, the governments, the judiciary, the scientists and technocrats, they attack the plebe in the camps, in the poor neighborhoods of Athens, in the alleys, in the hills, parks and universities. The last pogrom in Exarchia was initiated by the “social” fascist government of syriza, with sweep arrest of replaceable dealers and users on the square and with evacuations of housing squats coupled with house raids in known drug dealers’ houses. In every case the target was migrants. Regardless of the penal development of these small scale sweeps in the drugs market, the desirable aim of the state is the prevention of the self-organization and radicalization of migrants. The far right government continues the counter-drug sweep, this time broadening its scope: Anarchists who struggle and co-organize within the world of migrants, are threatened to be eliminated as drug dealers.
I will not divert here into expressing my opinion and practice regarding the drugs of the bourgeois world, the position of the oppressed within the pyramids of their control, the militarization of the neighborhood, the proposition for struggle from a proletarian revolutionary perspective. There are several collective statements published on these subjects and existing experience from the movement. This is an issue of the social movement on the ground of struggle. Certainly though, the language and methods of counter-insurgency, the war (“against”) of drugs, is not our way.
The social movement and anarchists must keep the resistance within our lines of conflict: Socialization of the ground, in a way of equality and participation, combatively, with abundant solidarity. And to return terrorism to its birth place. If the state takes the responsibility to plant drugs and weapons on fighters, it is a common duty of the movement to start planting the heads of the bourgeoisie, the drug and war lords. They are trying to choke us in smoke? Let’s roast them in the fire.

Greece Athens, Exarcheia – No Pasaran! Protest against the greek State’s attack to Squats and Self Organized Spaces

It all started on Monday on Monday 26 August 2019, following a massive police raid against 4 squats (mainly housing refugees) and the consequent arrest of 143 migrants and 3 others in the Exarcheia area of Athens, Greece. Following the police raid, the neighborhood of Exarchia has been turned into a “militarized” zone with constant riot police attacks against people in the area, social centers and self organized spaces. According to the government that was phase one of its plan.
More State attacks and a long lasting repression campaign has been announced against migrants, anarchists and social activists mainly in the area of Exarcheia and then to rest of Greece. But what the government didn’t expect was that people in the area, instead of “cowering” in fear, they chose to defy the greek riot police and the government’s ideological terrorism, also expressed through its controlled mass media. Thus, on Saturday, 31 August 2019, thousands of anarchists and other activists sent through the protest the first message of resistance to the State’s repressive campaign, as well as, signals of solidarity to the squats and social centers evicted and those under the imminent threat of new attacks by the greek State. But that protest was just the first reaction.
Many squats, self organized spaces, political collectives, groups, international activists and refugees-migrants have announced a new, even bigger protest that will take place on the 14th of September 2019, this time not in Exarchia, but in the center of Athens.
The call for the “No Pasaran” demo is at Propylaia (Panepistimio metro station) in Athens at 12:00 on Saturday 14th of September.

Greece, kerkira island (Corfu) : Taking Responsibility to show solidarity with the evicted squats of Exarchia

 
At dawn on September 1, 2019 we wrote slogans at the offices of NODE (Prefectural Administration Committee) of New Democracy and broke down the bell at their entrance. Then we bathed the entrance of the New Democracy party political office of Stefanos Gikas with bright colours, and appropriate slogans were written.
Our action’s aim was to show solidarity with the evicted squats of Exarchia and opposition to the never justifiable police oppression which is escalating.
Immediately the congressman himself and the local media spoke of “reproduction of hate, violent and extreme behaviour that damages democracy.” Also the Syriza scumbag Alekos Avlonitis – a local bourgeois – spoke with identical words.

Greece, Thessaloniki: Taking responsibility on 20.6.19  by Afternoon Arsonists Group ‘Mauricio Morales’

In recent years, it can be observed that there has been increasing establishment and empowerment of modern totalitarian regimes in various regions-states of this fragile world. From Bolsonaro’s Brazil, to the upcoming Le Pen’s France and from fascist Salvini’s Italy in Mitsotakis’ expected “march” into our surrounding territoriesPanoptic control, manipulation of populations and their consciences, overwhelming arms power show-off and exhibition of vengefulness against those who choose to resist, are only some of their common attributes all over the world. Repression and long sentences on those who dispute them.
   And if at times we are just waiting for the opportunity to return to the streets of fire and action, this time we heard of the hunger strike of Italian comrades Silvia and Anna seeking to put an end to their isolation in Italian AS2 type prisons and have the opportunity to communicate with each other and with their comrades outside prison. The hunger strike was also backed and supported by other anarchist comrades such as A. Cospito, Salva and Steco. The enforced permanent isolation status is, after all, widespread and applied to anarchists all around the world. So the Italian state is showing its teeth too against its political opponents with machinations and demonstrations of power against those who have hated exploitation and authority, every deprivation of freedom.

WE STAND AGAINST STATE REPRESSION translation in english, french, spahish, turkish, arabic
English version
WE STAND AGAINST STATE REPRESSION
The state and capitalism continue to target the freedom of the social base and appropriate its labour and resources. In recent years we have experienced some of the most violent attacks on this freedom through the mass impoverishment of the already oppressed and exploited. At the same time, a widespread social resistance and solidarity movement has formed. People have created a variety of self-organized spaces such as housing infrastructures, social medical centres, community kitchens, open parks and public spaces. In spite of setbacks, the movement has created a solid social ground and accumulated considerable knowledge and experience.
Through squats, political groups, base unions, squares and neighbourhood assemblies we have formed communities of struggle with strong social bonds. Communities oriented towards society, with a critical eye all the same. At times, the movement has had to use violence as a means of defending and expanding free spaces against state repression, capitalist interests and fascist attacks. It is a movement that grows in diversity and vibrancy, despite the ongoing criminalisation of solidarity and mobility.
In the context of this socio-class conflict, on Monday 26/8, the state, armed with police forces, seized Exarchia and evicted four squats. Two of these squats were migrant homes—Transito and Sp. Trikoupi 17,from where the police abducted 144 migrants, uprooting them from their places of residence for a second time and isolating them in what the state calls detention centers. Evictions were also carried out in an ongoing housing and political squat in Assimaki Fotila st., and the Gare squat, where three arrests were made. Police also invaded the homes of comrades from Gare. In the next days, police kicked out homeless persons from Strefi hill, beat up a homosexual couple, attacked the steki of anarchist immigrants and the squatted social space of K’ BOΞ. The movement gave multiform answers with gatherings, actions and demonstrations. In addition to the squats and the movement, this repressive operation targets migrants. These are some of the most oppressed people in society, since their very existence is considered illegal. In a state of ‘illegality’ there is no access to health and education, and working conditions are like slavery. Many choose self-organisation and solidarity structures in order to survive and resist.

Germany,Magdeburg : [MD] Four at a stroke – Solidarity greetings to Exarchia

In this night, 4.9.19,we squatted four houses in different city districts of Magdeburg (Germany). We want to express our anger on the brutal attacks in Exarchia where more than 140 people have been jailed in refugee camps or directly imprisoned. At the same time, we want to show our solidarity with the free and rebellious spirits of the district here and of all other resisting places.

Today, several people in Magdeburg came together to appropriate different houses temporarily – with that we are saying: We can take the rooms if we want. Exarchia lives on!

It has been pronounced long time ago, but now Kyriakos Mitsotakis, newly elected prime minister and his riot police MAT striked with full violence. His aim was and is the autonomous district Exarchia in downtown of Athens. In this district which is shaped by self-organisation and the spirit of resistance, Mitsotakis wants to “tidy up”, as it depicts a stain for the gentrification project in Athens. They want to impose a metro station in Exarchia so it subjects itself to mass tourism and real estate speculation. So far they tried to harass the inhabitants of that district through repression, controls and expulsion, now the methods have been intensified.

Switzerland : About the talkative Prisoner of Zürich

We as the former solidarity group are hereby publicly ending our solidarity and support activities for the prisoner, who was arrested in Zurich at the end of January 2019. Up until now the prisoner is still beeing held in pre-trial detention.
The person wrote a statement on the charges of arson against several military vehicles in Hinwil (Small town near Zürich) and on a police emergancy radio antenna in Zurich, a statement which we cannot support.
He then presented the statement to the public prosecutor’s office at the final interrogation of the investigation.
First, the person made statements that could be used specifically
against the comrade who has been wanted internationaly since July 2016 for the same sabotage of a police radio antenna. The prisoner seems to be aware of the possible incriminating use of his statement against the comrade on the run.

Italy: “Prometeo” operation – Text of Robert from the prison of Bancali (Sassari)

 Hello everyone!
I am Robert and from 6 July I find myself locked up in the prison of Sassari. I am accused together with two comrades of sending “explosive bags” to two public prosecutors, Sparagna and Rinaudo, and to the director of the DAP [1]. At dawn on May 21st [2019] we were searched and taken to jail. Beppe and I were locked up in Opera, where we spent a month in the “observation” section.
This is the area where prisoners are placed who must serve the 15 days of punitive isolation or those considered to be of high risk for self-harm. In our case, we found ourselves in that section, given that Opera does not have an AS2 [“High Surveillance 2”] but “only” AS1, AS3 and the inevitable 41bis. Having been banned from communicating with the other inmates, we spent a month in single cells with the blind permanently closed and an hour of air in the morning in a squalid narrow courtyard. In that section it was also forbidden to use cookers, so we adapted to the prison food, which was almost always inedible.

Capital’s control of territories exercised by the State’s repressive forces, cops, army, and legal engineering that defends property over life, pose problems to those who, like us, rise up in defence of the land and life and who seek the absolute freedom of all beings. The impossibility of an open struggle because of the limited size of our forces and the imbalance in our ability to exert violence against those that the state-capital exercises over us all, lead us to take up the struggle from the shadows and margins. Without underestimating protest and propaganda, but knowing their limits of tolerance in the democratic game, we consider that the attack has become urgent against the system that is advancing at breakneck speed in the devastation of the planet, particularly as a new mega-project promises to install itself in the territory.

Aviation Fuel Tankers Attacked in Bristol,UK

In the heart of Easton, next to a school, in a busy residential area
between a well used railway line and a motorway, is enough aviation fuel to cause a major explosion. Aviation fuel contains over 2,000 chemicals. Once ignited it has a much higher BTU (British Thermal Unit) than gasoline and can burn much longer. In Easton, there are 6 white tankers, each 60 foot long.
We are often labelled “terrorists” but if we were then… boom! bye, bye! Instead, we decided to attack these containers with dark blue paint. In executing this small act of defiance we hope to highlight their existance, and the danger they pose. This prank was also done to add to the current discourse and campaigns around the expansion of Bristol Airport.
The huge quantity of aviation fuel is kept in case there is ever a
shortage at the airport. The reality is that the existance of these
tankers puts people’s lives at risk everyday, just so that corporations can continue “business as usual” at all costs.

Why would the State freak out so much about a few unused litres of benzine and a lighter?
Why would the State feel threatened to the point that these basic, simple and widely accessible materials, would cause such a mass operation: the highest prosecution office handling the case, months of preventive detention, a media spectacle of slander that sings victory about the arrest of three “extremists”?
