DE/EN/ (B) Solidarität mit dem Aufstand in Belarus! Berlin, Germany: Solidarity with the Uprising in Belarus

Seit dem 10. August befinden sich Menschen überall in Weißrussland im Aufstand gegen das diktatorische Lukashenko-Regime. In unzähligen Demonstrationen liefern sie sich Auseinandersetzungen mit der Polizei und lassen sich selbst von der brutalen Gewalt des Staates und tausenden Festnahmen nicht einschüchtern.
Der militante Widerstand gegen den weißrussischen Staat richtet sich vor allem gegen die offensichtlichen Wahlfälschungen. Die Menschen in Weißrussland beginnen aber auch zunehmend, das gesamte politische System in Frage zu stellen, das seit Jahren in einer tiefen ökonomischen und politischen Krise steckt. Die anarchistische Bewegung in Weißrussland ist dabei die fast einzige politische Kraft, die an der Basis agitiert und eine wirkliche Alternative zu (Staats-)Kapitalismus und Unterdrückung bietet. Somit ist sie auch jetzt maßgeblich in die Kämpfe und die Unterstützung der Verwundeten und Festgenommen involviert.

Comments Off on The Quarantine of Fascism in Peru

The Quarantine of Fascism in Peru

The following text is a translation by Anarchists Worldwide of an article from Estallido Antisocial / Antisocial Outburst, a new anarchist publication from Chile. You can download a copy of the publication HERE.
The Quarantine of Fascism in Peru
The presence of the military and the police is normalized and applauded by a large part of the population.
The repression of the Peruvian state against the population or “the disobedient” as they say, is the same as what they do in protests or during any curfew in a territory in conflict with an extractive industry, with a company that exploits its workers or that pollutes us like Monsanto on our tables, like the mining companies in the mountains, the oil companies in the jungle, and so on.
This repression of “the disobedient” comes with humiliations such as doing exercises as if it were a barracks or a military or police drill. There are also beatings and haircuts with the approval and mockery of people who inhabit the neighborhoods and they start recording the situations when the same agents who exercise the repression in Peru and other countries such as Ecuador or the Dominican Republic carry it out.
Another situation that has been seen is the applause, celebration and cheering by citizens in the face of the curfew and the arrival in the streets of the military, police and municipal police, forgetting what this decree has historically meant as an instrument of repression that has also reappeared in countries like Chile.

CHILE: DAY OF AGITATION AND PROPAGANDA WITH THE ANARCHIST PRISONERS – 14 AUGUST 2020

Day of agitation and propaganda with the anarchist prisoners.14 AUGUST 2020
Ten years from the onslaught of power in the Caso Bombas and in the face of a new repressive coup against our comrades Mónica and Francisco, we are making a call to bring about demonstrations of propaganda and solidarity in all the corners of the territory this August 14. Unleashing creativity from where we are and as we can, once again doing in such a way that solidarity is more than a written word.
Neither guilty nor innocent, simply anarchists.
Active revolutionary solidarity with Mónica and Francisco!

Call for solidarity actions with the uprising against the Lukashenko regime – 14 August (Belarus)

(Greek) [Russian] [German]
For the first time in the history of Belarus, people across the country rebelled against the dictatorship. Many thousands of demonstrations are held not only in the capital, but also in small towns. People take to the streets and not only peacefully protest against the authorities, but also fight against the state apparatus – they help friends and comrades and clash with punishers.
August 10, barricades appeared in the streets of Minsk for the first time, while protesters began using molotov cocktails. Some enterprises and firms went on strike.
In recent days, standing shoulder to shoulder, we have felt what the energy of the people means. We have realized that together we can overthrow a tyrant!
The blockage of the Internet could not stop the news flow. People all over the world have learned that the Belarusian dictatorship is ready to drown the population in blood just to stay in power. In three days, police and internal troops detained more than 5000 people, hundreds suffered from cop violence. At least one person has been killed.
Now more than ever, international solidarity is important in the fight against Lukashenko. Therefore, we call you all to join the international day of actions in solidarity with Belarusian people! In what format can you express your solidarity? You can hold rallies and demonstrations at Belarusian embassies and other institutions of Belarusian power in your country. Take collective photos. Take part in direct actions. Any, even the smallest solidarity can support the fire of rebellion that will tear down the dictatorship in our country!

Direct action in so called BC (canada)

Editorial Note: MTL Counter-info typically publishes content from or directly related to so-called Quebec. This submission contains information that can be difficult to publish, so we are making an exception.
On August 3, in so called Smithers BC, we attacked Val’s Drilling rig #004, using the accelerant in plastic bottles and firestarter cube method. After receiving word that the drill had arrived in Smithers, we departed from Prince George immediately. After arriving in Smithers and getting our bearings, we posted up at the park across the street from the hotel that the drill was parked at. After gathering sufficient Intel, a plan was developed, and the decision to act in the early morning was agreed upon.
After the device was planted and ignited, we immediately left back to prince George via highway 16. We believe that firm action is required to ensure that CGL does not drill underneath the Wedzin Kwah, by whatever means necessary. Solidarity with our Haudenoshaunee brothers and sisters facing off with the OPP pigs. No state militia sponsored industry on the stolen land that is Turtle Island.

Comments Off on About the Bublina Squat in Czech Republic

About the Bublina Squat in Czech Republic

What the Bubble is and what it is not

The Bubble (Bublina in Czech) is a squat, located on the planet Earth,
somewhere on the road between the cities of Aš and Břeclav. These
buildings with a yard have been unused by the owner and inhabited by
many different people with many various motivations over the years. Some
of them left, others have been expelled by the police. Since August
2019, the squat has been occupied by first member of a newly emerging
group of residents and supporters, and has been re-named to “Bublina”
(The Bubble).

This first resident has been dealing with housing crisis and lack of space to thrive for quite some time. After a few months, two more people joined who has been on streets since their employer deprived them of
finantial resources. They moved right before outbreak of covid- 19 pandemic, which allowed them to self- isolate in quarantine here and
surive without health risks. Both of them are elderly, so their health could have been compromised otherwise. These elderly men and middle-aged anarchist soon became accustomed to living together. It is not ideology nor generational struggle which made them cooperate, but their willingness to solve their material conditions and full full their other needs by squatting. Continue Reading →

En un contexto global de pandemia continuamos editando CONFRONTACIÓN, mientras en Chile y el mundo el sistema de dominación se fortalece y extiende a través de la tecnología, la presencia policial y militar, la intoxicación comunicacional, la enfermedad, la muerte y la manipulación a través de la difusión social del miedo por parte del poder.

En Chile, la pandemia trajo consigo también un retrotraimiento de la
revuelta y de la conflictividad callejera masificada desde el 18 de
octubre de 2019, teniendo algunos rebrotes de rabia en los últimos

Italy – ”Operation Prometeo” [Prometheus]: updates on the preliminary hearing of 29th July

A preliminary hearing for the ”Prometeo” investigation was held on 29th July at the court in Genoa. Videoconferencing was imposed on Beppe and Nat, and given the charges against them (article 280, with aggravated and continued circumstances) this is likely to continue throughout the trial.
During the hearing lawyers raised a technical issue which has been going on for months, i.e. that no one has been able to access environmental and telephone bugging yet, considered “evidence” on which a good part of the accusatory structure is based. Moreover, with the change of public prosecutor, a good part of the material had not even reached pm Federico Manotti, now in charge of the investigation. The investigating judge therefore postponed the preliminary discussion and the choice of trial procedures by setting two hearings: the first on 11th and the second on 18th [August] for any reruns.
After over a year in prison, the investigating judge ordered an extension of the custodial measure for Beppe and Nat on the eve of the detention period expiry term, justifying it with the usual “risk of escape” due to the accuseds’ lifestyles: owning a camper van that can be used for travel and for undertaking seasonal work abroad has become the pretext for justifying the escape risk and handing out more days of prison as though they were sweets.
An appeal hearing concerning Natascia’s remand will be held on 14th August.
Meantime, while these gentlemen are taking their time, Natascia remains locked up in the AS3 unit in the prison of Piacenza, and Beppe in the secure unit in Pavia: in spite of Beppe’s two hunger strikes and repeated requests from lawyers, the Director of Prison Administration persists in holding him in there.
As always, and even more so in anticipation of the trial, we are renewing the call for solidarity with the accused comrades.

Comments Off on Athens,Greece: Taking responsibility for the arson attack on the National Bank in Maroussi/Athens by: Thousands of suns of the night

Athens,Greece: Taking responsibility for the arson attack on the National Bank in Maroussi/Athens by: Thousands of suns of the night

Translation in French by Attaque : Maroússi (Grèce) : Revendication de l’attaque incendiaire de la National Bank

——————————-

“Even if we never win, we will always fight.”
Fear and despair. This social feeling prevails in the days of dystopia. The state administrators in the face of the depths of the global capitalist crisis, after militarily controlling the crowds and putting them in quarantine, infuse them with a continuous terrorism, repression and restriction of acquired freedoms and salaries. Beyond the hunger and misery that pervade, the desperate remain marginalized, like immigrant communities, while the privileged strengthen their privileges, like the N.D. government’s mobsters. and security forces.
On July 16, at 3:20 pm, we carried out an arson attack on V. Sofias Street at the National Bank in the center of Maroussi. As a result, the ATM was completely destroyed and extensive damage was done to the facade, with smoke and flames reaching the inside of the building. The choice of the target was not accidental. The National Bank has participance in auctions with a recent example of an eviction of an old lady at Petralona neighborhood. We see the role of banks in the auctions as a continuation of the attack and uprooting by the state in cooperation with the bosses to the undervalued people.
The city is constantly being rebuilt in terms of marginal displacement surgical architecture. They want a sterile commercial condition where some are left over because they are ruining the party of gentrification. At the same time, natural and public spaces are privatized with “fast track” and mafia tactics and ways (see Filopappou hill) and others are getting destroyed by windtourbines. The Real Estate in the center of Athens plays the role of the financial determinant of who will be able to live and where. The situation is reminiscent of a city in a boiling cauldron. Our current suffocation. In days when the state is planning prisons with even greater surveillance for internal enemies.

Athens,Greece: The destruction of a train at Metro Station Petralona for the death of a 20years old graffiter by Anarchists

DE: Athen: Erklärung zum Angriff auf die Metro Station Petralona

——————-

Gray city and hazy trains go around the urban metropolis of Athens, but in this city there are individuals and groups who can not stand this daily repetition and choose to express themselves on its gray and rotten walls and train sheets, choosing a greater risk to send their message throughout the city. Graffiti has not always been accepted by society at large and the state consider it as an enemy that soils what they want clean for a European model of the city. This is clear from the verbal attack of a “respectable” citizen of the so-called “ruffianoi” who will threat you  by calling the cops and many times use physical violence.
From the chase by the security guards on the trains to the public positions of politicians, see Bakoyannis (athens mayor) where in the framework of the policy of the agenda for the gentrification of the center he declared war against these people. Writing on a wall, on a train is the need to express yourself in public, that is, they do not allow you to express yourself openly because if it is something different from what they say you will be repressed and this is a proven phenomenon from the prosecution they will take you to court for painting a simple bridge.

The release of our new album, originally scheduled for September 2nd, has been postponed to a new date that will be announced as soon as possible.
In order to face this situation, some people close to us have set up a participative financing system which we are counting on to ensure the physical release of the album as soon as possible. So we’re relaying this open fund-raising campaign for two months: we need your support! Please share. Make a donation.

18th May 2020
The master’s voice
When presenting his « Sustainability Report » a few weeks ago, the president of the Trento Confindustria [general confederation of Italian industry] Fausto Manzana stressed the need to relaunch the economy while guaranteeing respect for the environment: «But this priority – he added – cannot fail to take into account  that major works need to be undertaken both on a national level, to better connect our Country to the rest of Europe, and in our Province».  Then he made explicit reference to the Valdastico [motorway] (with the northern exit), the third lane of the Autobrennero, the ring roads in Trento and Rovereto, the works linked to the Brenner Tunnel.
That the boss of the industrialists, while claiming to carry out Major works with a disastrous impact on the territory (and on climate change) is mentioning sustainability and respect for the environment is indicative of how the logic of profit and the subjugation of language always proceed hand in hand. Sense of limits, involvement of populations, change in lifestyles, second thoughts aroused by the quarantine and other stories commentators have entertained us in the newspapers, on television or on the radio during the past weeks of house arrest? Here these are summed up by Manzana: “Research will find solutions, the market will find the way”.

Blanzay (Vienne), France : incendiary sabotage of industrial wind power project

Wind measurement mast damaged in Blanzay

La Nouvelle République, 6 August 2020 (extract)
The Blanzay wind farm project continues to be talked about: a wind measurement mast was set on fire in a field in La Chassagne in the night of July 30 to 31. This had just been installed in a field located in the eastern zone of the Blanzeen wind farm, in La Chassagne, the initiative of the Volkswind company.

A controversial wind project
The SAS Wind Farm of Blanzay was authorized, by prefectural decree dated 16 October 2019, to install and operate a wind farm on the land of the municipality of Blanzay. The pilot report of the Blanzay wind farm, established following the February 12 meeting 2020, provided for the erection of a wind measurement mast in the summer of 2020. It was further specified that “the measurement data of wind over a full year will help refine production forecasts of the park within the framework of the bank financing of the project”.
Shortly after its installation, during the night of July 30 to 31, a tyre at the foot of the pylon was set on fire and the flames blackened the base of the metal edifice.

International Call for the defence of Liebig34 (Berlin,Germany)

Berlin: ACTION WEEK FOR LIEBIG34 – 07.09 – 13.09.20

Liebig 34 is being threatend by eviction. When state, cops and the owner want to evict, they will only have a desaster on their hands.
As an anarcha-queer-feminist selforganized house-project without cis-men, directly at the square „Dorfplatz“ in Friedrichshain, Liebig 34 is a place where resistive actions and collective moments are decided and organized. A place where self-organization becomes a dangerous word, where a project is becoming a starting point of struggles and not just a space of self-reference and alternative entertainment.
The project itself has taken part in the planning of many of demonstrations, published numerous calls and texts and carried out various radical actions. But it is also a symbol of radicalization and empowerment for the antagonistic scene in Berlin and in Germany, as it shows how to fight various forms of resistance.

Gabriel Pombo Da Silva communique
Gabriel has asked us to select some of his words from his more recent letters and compile a communique addressed to all those who would like to read it, as it is impossible for him to write one now that would get out of the prison where they are holding him kidnapped. The letters in question, which arrived after much delay, are dated from 11th April to 20th May when he wrote the only letter in the prison of Badajoz in Portogal, [he has since been transferred to the prison of Mansilla de las Mulas in León].
Gabriel sends strong hugs to all the comrades who are supporting him sincerely and to all the dignified individuals who continue to struggle for freedom in whatever part of the world they find themselves.
 Freedom for Gabriel!
Freedom for all!
Long live Anarchy!
——————————————————————————————————————–
Words from Gabriel Pombo Da Silva, April – May 2020
“… what is happening has no logic or rules… it’s like playing a game of chess where every now and again someone buts in and moves a piece on the board… how can you play or win a game like that? What are the ‘rules’ or the ‘limits’? I can’t even talk about ‘Law’ (regardless of what I think about it) or appeal to ‘Rights’ after all I have gone through… that’s why I am wondering: given that I don’t have any ‘Rights’, what are the ‘rules’ of this struggle? In the end the State’s war against resilient individuals is always dirty, without any ‘rules’…”
“To keep silent is to tolerate what is abhorrent, to rot inside. It is a thousand times better to die for what one believes, thinks and feels than to keep quiet and ‘live’ in the grip of a state of terror. What life of shit could that ever be?”
“The day when not one single individual exists that is capable of resisting the authoritarian mega-machine (and I’m not talking about ancient mythology), the freedom of everyone will be dead… we will only be appendices of a system that produces nothing but extreme alienation.”
Gabriel Pombo Da Silva
11th April 2020
(…) I want the month of April to be over… in May I might go away from here. Well, rather than go away, they’ll take me away… it’s important to write and speak with propriety, hehe.
Clearly changes always upset and worry us but… we already know that we have no say in anything here (and the detention situation in this place is heavy…) and that the push to my situation must be given out there… so, ‘calm or concerned’ we need a change of scenery.

Berlin : for the situation of the occupied houses in the north Friedrichshain neighborhood

Some information about the new attempt to evict Rigaer94 has already been spread in the last days, here is a summary also with regard to the threatened Liebig34.
Since the last major attack on Rigaer94 in Summer 2016, the coalition of the alleged owner of the house and Berlin Police has lost all legal proceedings. At the same time the „owner“ of Liebig34 was successful in court with his action for eviction. The distance between the two squats is 100 meters and in this area the cops and the image of the city of Berlin suffer a lot of damage.
Some call this a lawless area and a danger zone, but here there is a neighborhood based on solidarity and resistance structures. The current legal situation of Rigaer94 is as follows : on 4 floors in the back house a collective lives together, which also runs the bar and meeting point Kadterschmiede. On the ground floor the autonomous youth club Keimzelle squats their rooms. In the front building friends and other parts of the collective live in the flats. Both in the front and in the back we have valid rental contracts for some rooms, some of the rooms, including Kadterschmiede, are occupied. The aim of “Lafone Investment Ltd”, the Police and the Berlin government is to evict us completely from this house, because they hope that this will put an end to the solidary neighborhood and its constant attacks against them. In addition, the clearing of Liebig34 seems very difficult to them as long as we still exist.
