Comments Off on Saint-Jean-Bonnefonds (Loire), France : Fire at Eurovia
Le Progrès / Tuesday May 14 2019
Fire broke out within the Eurovia company [a company that belongs to the infamous Vinci group] in Saint-Jean-Bonnefonds during Monday to Tuesday night at around 2.45am. Several fire-fighters of the barracks of the Saint Etienne agglomeration converged at the chemin de Littes. When they arrived, four trucks, two excavators and several utility vehicles in the company car park had already been destroyed by the flames. Rescuers had to deploy three fire hoses to prevent the fire spreading to the administrative building.
Police have opened an investigation: the arson thesis is that favoured by the investigators. In fact, three separate ignition points were identified. The damage would amount to almost a million euros. Technical unemployment is expected, as well as delays in work in progress on the site. Continue Reading →

Comments Off on UK, LONDON : 1/JUNE/2019 // !NOISE DEMO AT HMP PENTONVILLE! //ACAB/FTP/YOLO//
The logic of the prison, its categorisation of ‘good citizens’, the ‘innocent’ and the ‘criminal’ and the ‘guilty’, its colonisation of time; its punishment by the hours that drip away, all its routine brutalities, its petty pecking orders, its enforcement of servility, the breaking of rebellious spirit— this logic is both the way our society disappears its problems and paradoxically how everything within it really functions.
We have held two demos outside pentonville recently, on each occasion those hostages of the state on the wings that could see us crowded at the barred windows, screamed aloud for their freedom and set fires in their cells. Three times we have gone out in numbers in solidarity against the prison industrial complex and its functionaries, to fill the night with a message of liberation, and our rage of accomplices with the incarcerated.
London is a gentrified, policed and surveilled castle where laws made to kidnap the poor have their immediate correlate in the looming threat of repression which any rebel faces when she decides to act to reclaim his life. All around the world the irreducibles who turn words into action find themselves encircled by this monster whose monument we intend to disrupt and agitate against again.
On a night in late March we have positioned incendiary devices and triggers to set fire to five cars of ENI Enjoy car sharing service.
Attack the State and its neo-colonial interests without delay.
Solidarity and closeness with the arrested and the investigated for Scintilla and Renata operations.
A fiery red greeting to the prisoners of Scripta Manent and Panico operations.
To all the imprisoned and fugitives anarchists in the world, strength!

Comments Off on Zurich, Switzerland: Pre-trial detention of the comrade has been extended
The preventative detention of the comrade arrested on 29 January 2019 was extended for another three months early in May. Apart from that, his situation has not changed. He is still imprisoned in Zurich Prison and the law continues to justify his preventive detention with ‘risk of going on the run’ and ‘connivance’ until the investigation is closed.
Mail can still be sent to the comrade through the anarchist library “Fermento”. In a letter made public, the comrade wrote about what interests him in particular: “I look forward to getting news and analyses of what is happening in the world, anarchist publications (to be sent in appropriate envelopes), also of course letters from comrades and friends.

Comments Off on Italy : Words from anarchist Luca Dolce (Stecco) from the prison of Tolmezzo
insuscettibilediravvedimento on 2019/05/10
Translated by act for freedom now!
Note: Anarchist comrade Stecco was arrested on 19th February 2019 in repressive operation ‘Renata’, where seven anarchists were arrested (one of them was immediately put under house arrest) and accused according to articles 270bis (four of them) and 280 (all) of the penal code, plus related offences referring to direct actions that took place in the Trentino region over the past two years. In March judges of the court of review decided that the charges that had been pressed initially were non-existent, dropping the aggravating circumstance of ‘terrorism’. The imprisoned comrades are being held in AS2 units in the prisons of Ferrara, Tolmezzo and L’Aquila.[Update: all the anarchist comrades involved in operation ‘Renata’ are now under house arrest with all the restrictions. Only Stecco remains in prison due to previous sentences]
Words from Stecco from the prison of Tolmezzo
The time has come for me to say something about what happened in February.
Less than two months have passed since our arrest with operation ‘Renata’, and I can say that I’m calm and strong, as sure as ever that the struggle continues in spite of the blows inflicted by the State.
My arrest in Turin, in the vicinity of Corso Giulio, took place at around 5pm quite peacefully. As I was leaving the comrade I had been with, I noticed a typical plain clothes policeman in front of me at a tram stop; a few seconds later I found myself surrounded. I can say that all this happened in great tranquillity, and with annoying ‘kindness’ I’d say, unlike the way my comrades in Trentino were treated.

Comments Off on Bamberg, Germany: Subversive May- Incendiary Attack Against Prison Profiteers Massak Logistics
According to its own propaganda, the company Massak Logistics GmbH is a leading company when it comes to making profits from the needs of people.
Werner Massak, who gives interviews as an expert on these exact needs, founded the company in 1993. A company that does not hide the fact that it is a specialist in extracting money from prisoners.
Standard everyday goods (food, tobacco etc) are delivered by Massak Logistics at over-inflated prices to those behind the walls. Since there is no competition for such suppliers in prison, the company Massak can exert their tyranny in this system. Their customers, the prisoners, are deprived of the opportunity to decide for themselves which goods to buy at what price.

Comments Off on Athens, Exarcheia : Narcomafia, Airbnb & Counterinsurgency – continuing the discussion.
Narcomafia, Airbnb & Counterinsurgency – continuing the discussion
We do not want to dwell on the points already discussed. Most of the space agrees with and recognizes the main issues. More important is the question of what can be done. This Summer will see increasing tourism, Airbnb use and “customers” heading to the square. We have the ability to disrupt this transaction.
Friday nights around 1030-11pm is prime time to disrupt this trade and tourism in the area. Our presence in the square and streets with slogans, occupation and direct action is enough. Consistent, weekly Summer action will impede customers on the square and make tourists rethink their museum.
As for the divisions among the space, there are many of us as individuals willing to come together. We suggest this course of action to put forth a clear path.
No more toleration for authoritarian “management” of the public space of Exarcheia. Not one more incident of any kind against the anarchist movement by the para state. If it takes making the square intolerable for anyone other than anarchists than so be it. We are fed up.

Comments Off on France, Paris : Diplomatic Vehicle Torched in Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners
Without waiting for the masses, without waiting for ritual rendezvous, without waiting for any movement or specific struggle. What drives us is our individual asocial tension.
We are aware that we are only small thorns in the foot of power. But we have on our side the dignity of those who do not surrender, despite everything.
On the night of May 6th, a diplomatic car was torched on rue du Bois de Boulogne, in the 16th arrondissement of Paname.
In solidarity with the anarchists sentenced in Italy for the Scripta Manent trial and al the others, all over the world, from Russia to Latin America.
A nod to the fire-lighting night owls.
Long Live Anarchy!

Comments Off on France : Call for solidarity after the 1st of May in Paris
Call for solidarity after the 1st of May in Paris
Since the end of November, as the Gilet Jaune’s movement develops, cops and banks are being regulary attacked. In such a context, the 1st of May could have been a radical break in this world made of borders and wars.
It could have been the ungoing of the 16th of Marth’s riots and, to put it in perspective, an attack against the life-breaker industry called authority.
Nationalists and Regionalists flags are all over the place, all over
our grounds, and at the same time the courts are filling up the prisons as the french state annonced that it’ll be able to inprison 10,000 more people in the next 10 years, not to mention the Administrative Detention Center and psychiatric wards, and as the capitalistic speech tells us to smile as we die more and more in the inside. Work is just another way of saying « Kill me ».

Comments Off on Italy: About the sentence in “Scripta Manent” trial and update on comrade Marco Bisesti
About the sentence in the “Scripta Manent” trial
On April 24, the Turin Court of Assizes issued the first instance sentence for the “Scripta Manent” trial (which followed the repressive operation in which five comrades were arrested on September 6, 2016, and two others received notification of pre-trial detention while they were already in prison for the attack against Roberto Adinolfi of May 7, 2012).
Alfredo Cospito was sentenced to 20 years, held responsible for the possession and transport of explosives in relation to the bomb at the Parco Ducale at the Parma RIS (“special investigation department” of Carabinieri) of 24 October 2005 (acquitted of the charge of attack as “crime impossible” because the switch of the bomb was off), of the explosive
envelope sent to the then mayor of Bologna Cofferati in 2 November 2005 (convicted of the bombing plus “possession and transportation of explosives”), of attacks with multiple explosive devices at the Carabinieri school of Fossano in June 2, 2006, and in the Crocetta
district in Turin in 7 March 2007 (crime of “massacre aggravated by the fact that the goal would have been the police” and acquitted of the aggravating circumstance of political motivation), of sending explosive packages to the then mayor of Turin (Chiamparino), to the editor of the newspaper “Torino Cronaca” (Giuseppe Fossati) and to COEMA Edilità
(company involved in the restructuring of the CIE, “identification and expulsion centre” for migrants) in July 2006. He is also indicated as promoter of the FAI (Federazione Anarchica Informale), recognized as a “subversive association with purposes of terrorism”. The aggravating circumstance of transnationality has fallen.
Anna Beniamino was sentenced to 17 years for the Crocetta and Fossano bombs (2006 and 2007) and for the explosive packets of July 2006 (the same three for which Alfredo was sentenced), as well as for “subversive association with terrorist purposes” as promoter of the FAI.
Nicola Gai was sentenced to 9 years for “subversive association with terrorist purposes”.
Marco Bisesti and Alessandro Mercogliano were sentenced to 5 years for participation in a “subversive association with terrorist purposes”.
All the other defendants were acquitted (for all 23 defendants the charge was “subversive association with the purpose of terrorism and subversion of the democratic order” and for some comrades also “instigation to commit a crime” and “terrorist attack”). All those condemned remain in prison, while Danilo has been released from prison and Valentina leaves the house arrest (to which she had been transferred from Rebibbia prison in Rome in December 2017).
The court has 90 days from April 24 to write the reasons for the sentence.
Anarchist comrade Marco Bisesti is in isolation since May 6th, 2019:
We learn that Marco Bisesti began serving 10 days of isolation from May 6th. This due to a verbal argument that occurred in mid-April with a guard, who thought of using the hydrant against an inmate in solitary confinement on the floor below the cell where Marco is locked up.
Freedom for all!

Comments Off on Political Statement of Front Anti Fasis Bandung (Bandung Anti Fascist Front) on State Brutality during May Day 2019 in Bandung , Indonesia
We, Front Anti Fasis Bandung (Bandung Anti Fascist Front), hereby condemn and curse every brutal act that the State carried out via its repressive state apparatus against the masses at the 2019 May Day demonstration in Bandung. We also condemn every form of violation to human rights that the State carried out against the arrested comrades in Bandung Police Station and in the Mobile Brigade base in Jatinangor. Furthermore, we also condemn these wretches for their savage actions against May Day demonstrations in many other areas. As for other condemnations, we say to ever State element that took part in the repression of May Day 2019 in Bandung the following:
1. We challenge the idea that the destruction cost the nation and that we should pay. What is the State there for and how big is the cost when they greedily take money from taxes that goes into their pockets? It we see it from a context of freedom of democracy that has oppressed from the beginning, the vandalism and wheatpaste bombing is a form of resistance against what the State stole from the people.

Comments Off on Ger/En : FEUER DEN KNÄSTEN! BLAZING REGARDS FROM NOWHERE :
You out there, you inside there,
Language is always vague and in this case there is no fitting vocabulary to really express how much I miss you all. You out there, you inside there. How much your solitary words and strong-willed acts quicken me. Outside as inside. How equal my inflamed hate is like yours which applies to the dirty guardians of the law in uniforms, robes and suits. Once again they have kidnapped a close comrade, this time from Zurich, and callous they are naughty to steal freedom of him by using their power-preservative and cold articles. You are not alone as well as I am not alone on my wayless path in clandestinity. Cause we are connected through the strength of our ideas and desires.

Comments Off on Spain : Operación antiterrorista contra el anarquismo en Madrid
Operación antiterrorista contra el anarquismo en Madrid
La mañana del 13 de mayo un nuevo operativo antiterrorista contra el anarquismo golpeaba en Tetuán (madrid).
El Espacio Anarquista La Emboscada y otra vivienda okupada eran registradas por miembros de la brigada de información y un operativo de antidisturbios. La operación se ha saldado con dos personas detenidas.
En nuestra mente las operaciones Pandora, Piñata, Ice y la operación que aún mantiene a Lisa entre rejas. Más recientemente las operaciones policiales europeas en respuesta a la revuelta en Hamburgo contra el G20, o las detenciones del pasado 29 de octubre de 2018 en Madrid…
En resumen: los golpes del Estado a la lucha. Frente a esto el cariño, la solidaridad, las redes de afinidad y las ganas de no rendirse jamás son armas contra el miedo y la represión.
Permanecer atentas a más información y convocatorias.
¡Ni inocentes ni culpables!

OUR THEORY: communication through PRACTICE. Attack 2
… The battles against Amazon or Google sites: Rightfully, attacks against the infrastructure of the almost daily mentioned „technological attack“ are carried out with a certain regularity. Often the criticism is directed against the always as more extensive percieved surveillance that seems to prevent us increasingly from becoming rebellious.
To counter this, the nightly action becomes a litte more thoughtful, secret or even technically sophisticated each time. In the claims of responsabilty it is written for the thousandth time why it is legitimate to attack x,y,z, or why an event a has now been followed by action b, as we also did in the first part of this series (Out theory: communication through practice. Attack 1).
