Paris, France: Spreading RAGE Arson Attack in Solidarity with Imprisoned Comrade ‘S’

S. has been in prison for a year. He is acccused of setting fire to several gendarmerie vehicles in Limoges on September 18th, 2017, during the Quai de Valmy / Burnt Cop Car trial.
We are among those who do not remain silent in the face of this repression. We will not forget any comrade who is in the hands of the State.
As a small gesture of solidarity with him, on the night of March 26th, two trucks and a car belonging to Paris City Hall were torched on Rue Corvisart (13th arrondissement).

Italy: Initiative in solidarity with anarchists from Russia to Italy (29/03/2019)

FRIDAY 29 MARCH in IMOLA(BO)- Italy meeting at 4 PM at the city center, under the clock tower (for those who come by train, just exit to the front of the station and go straigh on until you cross the clock), from there we will move to a nearby place for a chat about state repression against anarchists. From Italy to Russia the “internal enemy” is represented by all those who choose to oppose this world of control in an increasingly perfected police state.
TO TIGHTEN UP SOLIDARITY AND COMPLICITY WITH RUSSIAN ANARCHISTS ARRESTED AND TORTURED FOR THE “NETWORK OPERATION”. They take away comrades with repression, but our anger grows!
There will be updates on the latest operations and a following benefit dinner for ABC Russia and a live show with Unicorn Partisans.

Germany :8 march demonstration in Berlin from Liebig34 squat together with a video invitation

mobi video L34 from Bill Renders on Vimeo.

We are here today, on the 8th of March, to bring our fights to the street.
And as much as we are happy to take the streets together to make our fights visible, one day is not the measure of our resistance, when Patriarchy is oppressing us historically and systematically every day.
This is not a single celebratory day of fighting.
Every day is a fighting day for women* and queers against patriarchal oppression.
Every day women, queer, trans people are oppressed, raped, abused and discriminated against.
Every day patriarchy gives us a reason to be angry.

Operazione “Renata”: Aggiornamento
Pubblichiamo, in ritardo per un disguido tecnico, questo aggiornamento ricevuto il 20/03 :
I giudici del riesame hanno considerato insussistenti le accuse di terrorismo, quindi il 270bis e le aggravanti. Il reato ipotizzato ora è quello di 270 ossia associazione sovversiva. Ad ogni modo le compagne e i compagni rimangono per ora in carcere.

[Note of roundrobin.info website]: We are posting, delayed due to a technical problem, this update received on 20/03:
The judges of the review [“giudici del riesame”, in Italian] considered the accusations of terrorism to be non-existent, therefore the 270bis accuse and the aggravating ones. The alleged crime is now of 270 or rather “subversive association”. In any case, the comrades remain in prison for now.

Niccolò Blasi, anarchist arrested 7.02.2019 in the context of the repressive “Scintilla” operation – which involved the eviction of the Asilo Occupato in Turin and the arrest of six people (two of whom were subsequently released from prison following the fall of the “subversive association” accusation) -, was again transferred, this time from the prison of Ivrea to that of Cuneo.

Ukraine : Who’s to judge? About the shooting attack on the courthouse in Kiev.

One of the windows  of Holosiivskyi courthouse.
The time has come to elaborate further on our attack  https://bo-ak.org/index.php/en/news/149-anarchist-attack-on-goloseevsky-district-court-building-in-kiev on Holosiivskyi district court in Kiev.
Among the commentaries on the attack, we’ve read more than once that some people don’t understand our motives. They don’t get how does Azat Miftakhov’s arrest in Moscow have anything to do with a courthouse in Kiev. We’ll try to explain, because it’s important to get this seemingly obvious message across.
Choosing the target:
We decided to go for a government court building. A lot of us have a good idea of what exactly is a courthouse today. Who among us hasn’t been in court? Who’s never had a friend or acquaintance on trial? Everyone felt this utter disdain for judicial robes, those who are fainter of heart – even fear. Why do we have to respect and accept them? Someone gave them the right to take our freedom and our lives, so now they sit there, up high, when you are languishing underneath, behind bars, with a watchdog in uniform hovering over you.
Court, as every other body of legislative, executive or judicial power, is a tool in the hands of the State. A tool for suppression of any civilian activities that pose a threat to the government.
All authoritarian states (and all states are) allow protest activities right up until the moment they become a real danger, or until the capitalist system can still sell this protest at a profit.

THE TRICKLE OF MEASURES CONTINUES
DETERMINATION CONTINUES TO GROW
Yet another expulsion order from Turin delivered following one of the numerous actions of solidarity with those who struggle and those who are struck by repression.
In particular this order refers to the presence in the bunker court on 11th February in solidarity with those on trial for Scripta Manent; but it should be seen in the whole month of struggle following the arrests in Turin and Trento and the eviction of Asilo. 
That day, during a pause in public prosecutor Sparagna’s statement, the 62 people present in court read a communique that said:

Argentina: Update on the Cruel and Inhumane Treatment of Anarchist Prisoner Anahi Salcedo

Anahi Salcedo has been held in Ezeiza Prison since January 10th. She is on remand accused of the explosive attack against the tomb of the infamous, genocidal torturer, Commissioner Ramón Falcón, Chief of the Argentine Federal Police that took place on November 14th, 2018 – 109 years since Falcón was executed by Anarchist comrade Simón Radowitzky.
Anahi received serious injuries to her hand and face, allegedly following the premature detonation of a homemade explosive device at the tomb. At the time of her arrest, Anahi lost three fingers on one hand and suffered serious injuries to the rest of her body including a fracture of the clavicle on her other arm.

Comments Off on ”Operation Panico”, Italy : News from the hearing of 12th March 2019

”Operation Panico”, Italy : News from the hearing of 12th March 2019

Today there the hearing concerning the  consultants for the defence was held. Statements were given by forensic consultants, an explosives expert, and again the prosecutor’s geneticist, with the cross-examination of the defence. In order not to bore anybody we won’t write a detailed summary, but as a matter of fact it went pretty well; the prosecutor didn’t seem to cut a great figure.
In conclusion, the judges decided to examine the experts’ reports with their super partes experts, regarding forensic genetics (probably they will take DNA samples from Ghespe, as this hasn’t been analysed so far), statistic biology (given the perplexities that have emerged in connection with the statistical analysis of data which should not be valid in terms of evidence) and the legal-medical report. So the trial has been rescheduled as follows:
14th March – Official statements by the court/prosecutor/defence experts
4th April – Experts’ statements; prosecutor’s statement on environmental interceptions (which haven’t been submitted yet)
11th April – Prosecutor’s/civil parties’ summing up
12th and 18th April – defence’s summing up
The dates of repetitions and sentencing will be probably fixed at a later time.

Comments Off on Madrid, Spain : Attack on the structures of the city

Madrid, Spain : Attack on the structures of the city

In the context of the week of ‘Agitation and propaganda against gentrification and capitalist speculation, and in defence of squats’, two vehicles owned by the firms ‘E-Move’ and ‘Car to Go’ were set on fire in the neighbourhood of Arganzuela and Prosperidad.
We find ourselves in the face of the consolidation of the latest democratic reinvention and of the renewed illusion on the outworn structures of the State and on parliamentary institutions. The irruption of the ‘new politics’ on the political scene has been exploited by the system in order to renew its own structures of domination and to give them a new nourishment of legality, after they had been devastated in the years of the crisis.  As the electoral path was gaining strength, street agitation was decreasing. As always.
At the same time we had to face infiltrations and cohabitation in so called ‘social movements’ by politicians and leaders, who exploited all attempts at  struggle, amidst various white signs of Podemos intent to share the cake of municipal power. It is becoming more and more normal to see characters such as Errejón [one of the founders of Podemos] taking part in protests against migrants’ detention centres and members of parliament during evictions, as in Via Argumosa, and to see municipal councillors and other kinds of politicians infesting squatted or non-squatted social centres, one meeting or the other…

Comments Off on Czech Republic updates 27/03/2019 : What is Fénix 2 about

Czech Republic updates 27/03/2019 : What is Fénix 2 about

In April 2015, first accusations appeared and first part of Fénix started. In March 2018, Higher court in Prague dropped all the charges for all people involved in the case. Meanwhile, the second part of Fénix arrised and this article explains, what is it about.

From first to the second part

When the police started operation Fénix, some media claimed, that SRB (Network of Revolutionary Cells) was scattered. Yet sabotages and arson attacks continued and the amount of them raised. Soon, it became obvious, that it’s going to be hard to connect accused people with those activities, so the police started to “investigate”.
They focused on interrogations, analyses of materials seized in home raids and also on tracking people. Among them, there was also an anarchist Lukáš Borl, who decided to go underground at the end of the summer, because of harassment of him and his close ones by the police. In the winter 2016 police profiled Lukáš as “wanted” and claimed as dangerous and armed. Since this moment, we can talk about the beginning of Fénix 2.
On 4th of October, Lukáš was captured in Most by police officer Zdeněk Prošek. He told him the charges, which he was accused of several months ago, without his presence. At that moment he found out, what they were about.

Italy : Words from anarchist comrade Anna Beniamino

Translated by Act for freedom now!

—————————————————-
Anna
Degenerations – Between pride and gender victimhood 
(An article Degenerazioni – Tra orgoglio e vittimismo di genere
published in issue 3 of the anarchist paper Vetriolo)
I am anarchist, I am not feminist because I see feminism as a sectorial and victimist withdrawal, I have never made any gender discrimination although I don’t use gender-friendly linguistic conventions, on the contrary I often use dirty politically incorrect language. I think that the annulment of gender privilege and similar oppression is already contained in the search for anarchy, that is to say in the practice of antiauthoritarian relations, and should be cultivated there. Ah, I forgot, I loathe consciousness-raising in public meetings and I also consider assemblies to be blunt instruments. I understand and also have the will to meet. But I see how all too often the assembly degenerates into sterile self-representation.
You see nowadays you risk having to start off with such a preamble in order to enter the thicket of clichés on gender and feminism, disentangling yourself in the intricate incapacity to relate to the anarchist galaxy, with a range of behaviours going from hyper-emotiveness to the bureaucratic calculation of what stand (and degree of negotiable compromise) to take in a struggle. I don’t think that authoritarian and sexist behaviour can be fought by trying to spread new linguistic conventions or by cooking up shreds of mainstream indignant rhetoric (among which #nonunadimeno [enough is enough], the feminicide count on TV, pride, red shoes and rainbow ribbons) in an alternative sauce.

Avis de tempêtes – bulletin anarchiste pour la guerre sociale n°15

Avis de tempêtes – bulletin anarchiste pour la guerre sociale n°15 (mars 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
“En y prêtant quelque attention, fracasser le miroir de la normalité et se retrouver de l’autre côté pourrait même se révéler plus surprenant encore. Car en plus du renversement provisoire de l’espace et du temps de la domination, c’est jusque la perspective qui pourrait s’en trouver chamboulée. Une fois rompu le charme de la vitrine, une fois le regard capable de se projeter au-delà de sa façade, pourquoi devrait-il en effet s’arrêter en si bon chemin ? La liberté et la rage ne seraient-elles pas aussi contagieuses que la passivité et la soumission ?
L’imagination et la perspicacité ne sont-elles pas des qualités pour celles et ceux qui veulent aller plus loin encore ? Et dans ce cas, pourquoi le regard ne continuerait-il pas à vagabonder à sa guise, non seulement derrière les vitrines mais aussi dans toutes les autres directions, y compris en bas ou en haut, là où prolifèrent les flux de données et d’énergie qui les alimentent. Sous nos pieds ou juste au-dessus de nos têtes.
Comme une manière de continuer à saccager le problème, cette fois directement à la source. Même à quelques-uns, et chacun selon ses propres échéances.”

Solidarity with the comrades in Turin

On the morning of February 7 the police of the city of Turin deployed all their repressive apparatus with the intention of clearing the “Asilo Occupato” Social Centre of the Aurora neighbourhood.
A social centre for more than twenty years in the area, which fought against borders and racism. A horizontal, self-managed space, which fights against social inequality, facing a more and more cruel capitalism.

Italy : Update concerning anarchists imprisoned in operations “Scintilla” and “Renata”

Some comrades arrested on 19.02.2019 in Trentino during the repressive operation “Renata” have been transferred to other prisons (Ferrara, Rome Rebibbia and Tolmezzo, where Giulio and Stecco are already imprisoned). We remember that the main accusations against them are “attack with the purpose of terrorism” (article 280 of the penal code) and, not for all the comrades, to have constituted or participated in a “subversive association with the purpose of terrorism or subversion of the democratic order” (article 270 bis of the penal code).
Here are the updated addresses:

While Niccolò, arrested on 7.02.2019 in Turin as part of the “Scintilla” repressive operation, who for some days had not been in the AS2 (“high security 2”) section of Ferrara prison but in a “normal” section, was transferred  on 19.03.2019 to Ivrea prison (in the province of Turin). We recall that they are no longer accused of having established or participated in a “subversive association” (article 270 of the penal code), but on charges related to specific facts.

Comments Off on Montreal : Notes on Our March 15th Against the Police

Montreal : Notes on Our March 15th Against the Police

Anonymous submission to MTL Counter-info
I want to remember how it felt to be shook by the beauty of the crowd. Fear and anxiety dissipate as a hundred-strong black bloc takes the street, realizing its collective power that compels police units to maintain a safe distance. It’s happening. We can do this.
Attacking luxury cars, hotels, and banks when the police have been made unable to defend them is an attack on the police, which depends on the perception that it can maintain law and order to be respected by good citizens and feared by the excluded. A call-and-response of shattering glass echoes down Peel Street, as projectiles fly at bank windows in quick succession. Not to worry, several rocks, flares, and at least one decent firework are reserved for the SPVM.
Spontaneity works pretty well sometimes, and it’s cool when people roll a dumpster out of an alley, someone else drops a flare in it to start a small fire, an “ACAB” gets tagged on the front, and others decide to charge with it at some cops up ahead, all in the span of sixty seconds, as though carefully choreographed. Our time together is limited, yet expansive.

Free and dangerous by Elisa and Gabriel. EN/SP/IT


  Ardire, Scripta Manent, Operation Buyo … Do they mean anything to you? These are only a few of the police judicial “operations” that our “clan” has lived on its own skin for being and remaining anarchists to the extreme consequence.We are a nomadic clan that goes from country to country in search of accomplices who practice anarchism without asking for approval or consensus, who act without worrying about the “politically correct” discourse (so much in vogue in our times) that haunts our little shops today. We are also not interested in “aesthetics”, but “ethics”, the practical, the real…
  We are looking for an anarchism that dirties our hands, keeps us awake and always on guard (as opposed to any complacency); this anarchism that is not liked by and disturbs the servants of the State, who have not abandoned their efforts to imprison us.
  It is not easy to go from one place to another. It’s even more difficult along with our daughter, that little beauty we called Iraultza, and a canine companion that we will never fail to take with us, because she is an integral part of our clan.
     Apparently, the Spanish State has not stopped wanting to put me in prison for a “residual sentence” that exists only in its putrid mind and its disgusting papers.
