Bologna, Italy: huge national and local television relay antennas were sabotaged on December 15 to 16, 2018

We learn with some delay, that the night of December 15 to 16, 2018 on Monte Donato, a hill above Bologna (Italy), huge national and local television relay antennas were sabotaged between midnight and one o’clock in the morning. On the spot, a simple tag has was found, saying, “Turn off the antennas / Wake up the consciences / Solidarity with incarcerated anarchists and those under surveillance “.
The fire went off in three distinct points, a first on the roof of the main structure that contains the “brain” of the antenna, a second in the back of a cabin that contains the transmitting gear, and a third inside the electrical transformer. Cables and relay bridges for radio-TV transmitters were destroyed by the fire. In several parts of Bologna from that very night, but also in Ferrara and other parts of Romagna, reception for various TV channels was cut. The coating of the “radio transmitter interforces”(police, army, etc.) located on the same pylon was also affected by spreading.

Fondettes (Touraine), France : Broken to snatch money

In Fondettes (Touraine), the Swedish group Sandvik (43,000 employees throughout the world, 1 billion 300 million euros in profits in 2017) intends to close the production plant for “carbide inserts” for the industry, and relocate it. The 161 licensees have been fighting since November 2018 not to keep their jobs, but to extract a maximum of money from Sandvik. While the negotiations under the leadership of the CGT and the CGC have dragged on for two months, on January 17 after yet another meeting with the management some disgusted workers visited the offices. They let themselves loose on “the furniture, trolleys and filing cabinets” of the management, but also “damaged pointers and carbide pads, flagship product of the production.”

VIENNA/BEC : Claim of responsibility for fire attacks to IMPLENIA and KENT

On the night of January 28th, we set fire to a construction machine that was located on a Implenia company’s construction site. Implenia is one of the main responsible companies working on the extension of the deportation prison “Bässlergut” in Basel. As a result, they are instrumental in further expanding the deportation industry.
On the same night, we set fire to a vehicle owned by the Kent restaurant chain. For years, they have openly carried a support of the fascist government in Turkey and its dictator Erdogan. This government is committing a genocide against the Kurdish population and on revolutionary people who have joined the fight for Rojava.
They were flames of revenge. Revenge for the persecution and recent condemnation of Basel 18. Allies*, who decided to unload their anger in June 2016 and made a wild demonstration in central Basel to fight against racism, repression and deportation. On this demo, institutions and companies were attacked that push this shit.
They were flames of anger. Anger at the European deportation system and the fundamental problem of national territories. This system tortures, murders and deports people against their will. It prevents people from living their lives self determined and dignified. It makes people criminals due to origin and skin color.

Germany, Berlin : poster and banner in solidarity with Mundo Nuevo an anarchist squat in Thessaloniki threaten with evicition.

The Mundo Nuevo an anarchist squat in Thessaloniki, has been in existence for three years as a vivid and self-organized space for freedom and resistance.
The state and the fascists have threatened it in the past. This time the impeller of the eviction is OKANA (a NGO dealing with drug addicts) with the pretext of turning the building into a second chance school.
Behind the board of directors of the NGO are hidden the governing party Syriza, political opposition of the right party Nea Dimokratia and the cops. With the excuse of humanism, they want to suppress another centre of socio-political struggle.

Thessaloniki , Greece : Announcement by the Group for Social Anarchism Mauro & Kokkino on the new threats for evacuation against Mundo Nuevo Squat

Flesh of our flesh and blood of our blood.Mundo Nuevo squat has already been counting three years, since the day our group took the initiative and occupied the building at the intersection of the roads Filippou and Siatistis and it will continue to count many more.During these three years, we have already spent long hours working, guarding and supporting this structure in order to create an open field of solidarity. Through hundreds of activities that have taken place there, the squat achieved to bring together young and old fighters and to persuade them that its support is worthwhile. It’s all these things that the state wants to attack now, as it has always wanted.It’s this will for fighting that the state wants to block, trying to crush the structures of the struggle.
This is what the present state administration wants. But they won’t achieve anything!And that’s because the fighters have already made their decisions. The various institutions involved in the evacuation, will get the answer they deserve. In Athens, our comrades have already made an intervention in the office of V. Kafetzopoulos, a sad puppet of SYRIZA in OKANA. And this was just the beginning. Now it’s the time for action and concrete solidarity!We call all fighters to support actively through participation in the daily guarding shifts of the building and all the other actions of the squat. We call every comrade, every group and collective in Greece and abroad to take action against the state and its guard dogs.
Every attack against one of us, is an attack to all of us.
And it shall not stay unanswered!
Evacuation means war!

Comments Off on Thessaloniki , Greece : Announcement by Mundo Nuevo squat regarding the imminent intervention of the district attorney against it

Thessaloniki , Greece : Announcement by Mundo Nuevo squat regarding the imminent intervention of the district attorney against it

Another suppressive attack is being initiated against Mundo Nuevo squat. As we have recently been informed, the Municipality of Thermi, the owner of the building where the squat is housed, has come to an agreement with OKANA in order to concede it to the organization, which, in turn, aspires to transform it into a second chance school for drug addicts. For us, what is happening, is more important than obvious. In the context of “rationationalistic” oppression that SYRIZA has put forward, they attempt to exploit some sensitivities that we, as anarchists have in reference to vulnerable social groups. In this way, they are attempting to detach an important tool of the anarchist revolutionary movement.
So, while the government is attacking its fiercest enemies, the anarchists, at the same time, they are trying to pose a progressive profile by declaring that these attacks serve a good cause.
Of course nobody can be fooled! We know very well what they aim at. It is the same government that congratulates the riot police when they attack the anarchist blocks, such as the attack on the demonstration of the 17th of November in Athens, the one that pretends to scold the police, while, at the same time, they send them to attack the educators’ demonstrations. It’s the government that prolongs the memorandums, plunders the wealth, intensifies the class differences and goes hand in hand with the dangerous plans that NATO has for the area. As people who support the squats and as anarchists we defend and we fight for the construction of schools and other structures that help the drug addicts.Of course we can perceive the hypocrisy of the state when, on the one hand it employs every means to push people to desperation and drugs, the police allows the drug dealings and collaborates with the mobs who have flooded the city centre, they collaborate with ship owners-mobs who transport heroin by Noor1, and, on the other hand, they pretend to provide welfare for the victims.
There are thousands of empty buildings where the state could put up its play of guilt, but they chose the one that constitutes a structure of the anarchist struggle. The state tries to exploit the drug addicts again to serve specific repressive political causes. No one will fall in this trap! We bluntly declare to the Municipality of Thermi and OKANA and to every other concerned institution, that our eviction from the building can only happen with the use of violence by the police forces. There is not a chance that we will collaborate with them! They should not even think about it, except if they want to take over the responsibility to call the police and arrest the fighters. If they prefer this solution, we call them to think of the consequences of this action very thoroughly.
Even if all these institutions that speak in the name of solidarity and help, choose the way of violence, we aim to retrieve the building in any way and to block every other function expect the one it already has; the promotion and the support of social and class struggles, the solidarity with the poor and the oppressed in order to create a world of equality and freedom without drugs, authorities, cops and judges. The world of struggle against everything that smashes us is the chance for all oppressed people to avoid addictions.

Leipzig, Germany: Arson Attack Against the Federal Court

During new years’ eve in Leipzig, east Germany, the night of excess was used to carry out an attack on a target that, up until then, had deemed itself heavily protected and untouchable. Every year for the first half hour of the new year the big cities are covered in thick layers of fog and smog, and the never-ending noise of explosions and masses of people who take over the sidewalks and community spaces to get a good look at the fireworks.
The attackers’ goal was the federal court and the state prosecution. This institution figuratively and literally represents the central organ of the judiciary, this state and its democratic society.

Grenoble, France – Photo of bug found in squat

After a raid in August 2018, officially motivated by a search for ‘drugs’, the people who live in the Awanhee squat in Grenoble found a bug in the common room.
In fact, a few days after the raid a bug was found inside a multiple socket in the middle of the room, upon which cops had also attached a leaflet of the place with tape. The bug is composed of a printed circuit, a battery and (as you can see from the picture) at least one microphone.
Apparently the raid was a mere excuse to plant the bug.  
You’ll remember that besides making the finding of a bug publicly known, a communique released in September also made it known that the cops were looking for someone in particular in the raid, of whom they had a picture which they compared with those present.

Calvisson (Gard), France: Sawing the feet of the world of authority – January 24, 2019

An electric pylon was sabotaged in the town of Calvisson (Gard) in the early morning of January 24. The iron pylon, with four solid feet, was cut in several places “probably with a power saw or a large power unit”, according to the journalcops. The strength of the wind did the rest, and the structure collapsed a few hours later. Electricity (in this case nuclear), so vital to feed this world of war, control and exploitation, was cut off a few hours before the rest of the network compensated for this loss.
“The criminal identification technicians of the national gendarmerie are on site, this Thursday afternoon, in an isolated area of ​​the town where the events occurred. This case is being taken very seriously by the authorities” add the scribblers, confirming that sabotaging the critical infrastructure of the State and Capital is a by no means negligible track for attacking the world … of authority, exactly.

Italy : At Teramo prison on Christmas day

People in solidarity went outside the prison of Teramo on Christmas day, as has been happening for years recently. Particularly on such days, not because of some recurring liturgical event, but just because this is the time of year when prisoners usually ‘feel’ imprisonment more. The sense of separation from outside and the suffering of confinement is greater.
Solidarity as well as the struggle is above all a question of constancy. Of being there. Not just once or twice when you feel like it… but as much as possible, according to the necessities and projects of the struggle.
So constant solidarity with the prisoners of the Teramo prison has made it possible over the years for the people outside to be ‘recognized’ by the prisoners inside. Recognized in the sense of why there are people in solidarity there every time.

Madrid, Spain : Action against research on genetically modified animals

On Tuesday 27th December, the eve of the new course “introduction to research on genetically modified animals” held by the international order of veterinarians, the door of the building was sealed, paint was splashed on the walls and floor and posters against genetic research were put up.
For many years the State has been augmenting such courses and research where animals are tortured with the aim of applying the results to human life, in order to control all the aspects of our lives and the environment.
It is therefore necessary to identify this kind of project, which is on the increase, in order to oppose the advancement of techno science.
DEATH TO THE STATE AND LONG LIVE ANARCHY!

Italy : Updates on Pierloreto Fallanca (Paska) from the prison of La Spezia

‘I confirm what I said, but I want a competent doctor after what happened to me. It’s true, as I went out of the cell I pushed the prison guard that was on the landing. Then, when I went down to reception I pushed the other guard who was waiting for me and was part of the escort. I declare however that I was assaulted immediately after that by more than ten guards with slaps and punches; they threw me to the ground and I was punched, hit and kicked in the head, back, abdomen, left and right leg and left hand. And when I got up I was hit until they handcuffed me.
While I was being beaten up I was insulted and heavily threatened. “Considering what emerges from the court papers, and especially after examining medical reports WHICH DID NOT STATE WHAT THE PRISONER DECLARED, taking the seriousness of the facts into consideration, the commission is applying a sanction of 15 days’ exclusion from social activities”.
This is what I declared to the disciplinary committee, which was held on Friday 9th November following the events that occurred in prison before the trial of 8/11.

remains detained in the dungeons of the Greek state. At the moment, he is imprisoned in the cells of Larisa and he is carrying out a hunger strike since 14 of January demanding the amalgamation of the penalties imposed on him during the years, so that he knows the time of his release.
The complex of justice delegated by the prosecutor Drakos doesn’t recognize his own rights and tries to bury him alive within the walls by rejecting the petitions he has submitted until now for the setting up of a trial date.

Athens, Greece: DEMOSTRATION CALL 25/1/18 for the 16 migrants arrested at Athens ASOEE

For many years now the pavement of asoee (Athens University of Economics) has been a workplace for a lot of migrants. Those migrants are the ones who managed to reach Greece and ended up in a detention centre or worked in the most underrated jobs, including the “illegal trade” of asoee. The state machine wants to keep them in a regime of unlawfulness because the illegal work force is easily manipulated by the state and the bosses with the constant threat of deportation or with daily police raids against them.
Until now all those tactics used to be a part of everyday life for those who are aware of the conditions at asoee, but in the re-election climate the SYRIZA government made 16 arrests on Thursday 20/12 and Friday 21/12/2018 outside the houses of the migrants exactly as they were on their way to work, with their “illegal” merchandise – so dangerous for the economy of the country and the worldwide economy – with the aim of using them as evidence in order to end the public nuisance issue of asoee.
