Comments Off on Italy – Raids in Genoa

Italy – Raids in Genoa

On 4/10/19 at dawn, the Genoa ROS  (special operations of carabinieri) turned up at the homes of two comrades in Genoa with search warrants  [they went back to one of them on 10/10 to seize  IT material they had forgotten – a computer, two modems, an USB key, a paper draft of this writing].
The warrant reads: ‘under investigation for offences concerning articles 110, 423, 270bis, committed in Genoa on 30/07/19’.
 Through local web news we learn that we are accused of setting fire to an ENI car, an action that was followed by a claim published in counter-information websites.
What they were looking for (we quote from the warrant) are: ‘objects and material related to the offences following which procedures are underway with particular reference to items of clothing used as disguises during the perpetration of the offences as well as documents and/or IT material related to the claim of the criminal action.’

Comments Off on Mexico: Letter of Mario López Hernández (Tripa)

Mexico: Letter of Mario López Hernández (Tripa)

I have decided to write this short text to make known the following:
Monday 2 September 2019 I was captured by the Criminal Investigation Police in the streets of Mexico City. The police transferred me to the Reclusorio Varonil Norte on the warrant for re-arrest for attacks against public order and aggravated damage of property, in relation to the proceedings opened against me following the accident with explosives in 2012.
I want to say clearly that my wish to NOT WANT to politicise this situation is due to the fact that I DID NOT and DO NOT want any violent or radical direct actions to be carried out in my name or for my sake or solidarity:
I am keeping this judicial procedure, as well as the old one, outside the radical anarchist or feminist movement that I want to avoid being related with, since I don’t belong to these movements.

Athens,Greece : LET US STRUGGLE COLLECTIVELY AGAINST THE REPRESSIVE ARMY AND ITS SEXIST ATTACKS (EN,GR)

LET US STRUGGLE COLLECTIVELY AGAINST THE REPRESSIVE ARMY AND ITS SEXIST ATTACKS
In the context of the wider repressive campaign, which targets the squatted spaces of life and struggle, the refugees and immigrants, the anarchist movement and the social and class resistance, the state is attempting to impose conditions of occupation in Exarcheia, an area that symbolizes the social prerogatives of solidarity, self-organization and revolt.
As every plan which attempts to terrorize and humiliate the people of the struggle and subordinate the whole population, this state operation of conquest is expressed also through the attempt to humiliate and disgrace the women of the struggle, girls, students, women workers, mothers who live and struggle in the area.
Squads of riot police occupy the streets and the corners of the public space. They invade in squats at dawn, destroying the self-organized life of uprooted people and the structures, which were built by the solidarity of those from below. With guns and gloves in their hands, they lead women, children and men in police buses in order to transfer them to concentration camps, where there is only imprisonment, impoverishment and death, like the death of a child in a carton box or in the flames that suffocated Faride Tajik from Afganistan in Moria, while she was surrounded by barbed wire.

Athens,Greece : Demo: LET’S TEAR DOWN the WAR MACHINES of the STATES – Solidarity with the Rojava revolution

Demonstration Saturday 12 October 5:30 pm at Propylaia (Panepistimiou street) Athens
The militaristic-fascist machine of the turkish state, backed by northamerican and russian imperialism, invaded Rojava, two days ago, across its borders, so as to complete what it started with the occupation and ethnic cleansing in Afrin: the crushing of the social revolution and the subjugation of the peoples of Syria. The ultimate goal of all state agents is the suffocation of the kurdish revolutionary movement, the uprooting of the PKK bases and the annihilation of the social struggles in the broader region of Anatolya, Mesopotamia and Middle East, for the next decades.
The popular resistance of the revolted in N. Syria and in the whole of Kurdistan is the hope of this planet. The international movement has the historical duty to blockade the political, economic and technical support given to turkish fascism and imperialism by multinational capital.
Our heart beats alongside the comrades who are fighting today in the liberated land of Rojava, beneath the bombs launched nato war planes. Victory to the weapons of the revolution, victory to the fighters of the Revolutionary Union of Internationalist Solidarity, who having given themselves wholeheartedly to the revolution of Kurdistan and N. Syria, with heavy cost from which they did not yield, are a radical and rare contemporary example of organized and continuous participation of anarchists in the defense of a revolution.

Riseup newsletter English October 2019

Tech Tip
————————————-

When you need to organise with others, which tool do you use typically use? Many turn to Facebook: it’s convenient and most people already have an account there.

Sadly, Facebook and other corporate platforms make profits by spying on you and selling your personal data to the highest bidder. Even worse, they’ll also happily work with law enforcement and give them access to all your data.

Lucky for you, we happen to host Crabgrass, a platform designed by activists, for activists. Since 2010, Riseup has been running Crabgrass at https://we.riseup.net.

Crabgrass is a web application designed for social networking, group collaboration and network organizing. Crabgrass lets you create wikis, send personal messages to your friends, receive gpg encrypted notifications, vote on issues, create tasks lists and much more! The best part is that your data on Crabgrass is secure: we will never give, sell or share your data with anyone.

Everyone (not just Riseup users) can create an account on we.riseup.net. You and your friends should give it a try!

————————————-

Did you know that Crabgrass was originally developed by Riseup? It was first created 15 years ago by a few Riseup birds who wanted to create an online organizing tool that would be safe to use and shielded from the eyes of corporations and governments.

None of this would have been possible without volunteers working on the code and your financial support. Please consider making a donation to Riseup to support further Crabgrass development and maintenance.

Greece, Athens: Claim for the attack on a drug dealers’ restaurant

In the afternoon of 14/09 we broke into a restaurant in Exarchia square. Last summer this establishment opened its doors and was destined to become another bastion of drug trafficking in Exarchia.
For us, this action is part of a broader struggle against State plans to install drug trafficking in Exarchia, in order to undermine the antisocial-libertarian character of the area. It should be noted that although the squadrons of the MAT [riot control police] encamp near the square, drug trafficking continues unabated.

Greece : Solidarity Poster, FROM GREECE TO MEXICO: FURY AND RAGE FOR EVERY RAPE

FROM GREECE TO MEXICO, FURY AND RAGE FOR EVERY RAPE
Here in this world we females have a lot in common to share. About those days when we walk in the street and the car honks with comments falling one after the other, at parties, in buses where hands are put on our bodies, the abuse and sexist comments from cops in detention and in the streets, the rape, the day we saw our comrades weep with anger talking about their rape. We are going to have more things in common.
The anger, counterattack and solidarity. Arming ourselves against the oppression of the State and patriarchy. Building security spaces for ourselves where we will feel free to share our experiences and to learn how to respond in all sorts of ways. Consolidating insecurity for rapists, cops and their friends.
Let’s find one another.
Solidarity in the struggle against the State and patriarchy in Mexico.
Long live feminism
Long live anarchy

Comments Off on Namur, Belgium – On the military exercise ‘Celtic Uprise’ (18th-25th September 2019)

Namur, Belgium – On the military exercise ‘Celtic Uprise’ (18th-25th September 2019)

For decades France has been one of the most important arms suppliers to the four corners of the world. With a flourishing industrial-military complex, it regularly carries out wars, supports irregular troops (such as that of general Haftar in Libya) and is also training on its own territory… and that of its neighbours. In the context of the ‘Motorized Ability’ program signed in June 2019 with one of NATO’s privileged partners, Belgium, it will supply the latter with 450 armoured vehicles (382 Griffon troops transporters and 60 Jaguar recognition vehicles), which will be delivered from 2025. Another aspect of this agreement is the strengthening of ‘strategic partnership’ between French and Belgian ground troops, which takes form in particular with conjoint training. This might seem quite banal, were it not for the fact that the army decided to train not only in barracks and appointed centres [1] that reproduce cities in miniature… but directly among the civilian population by performing exercises on a real scale.That’s how more than 1,000 Belgian and French military will occupy the provinces of Namur (ten municipalities located in the triangle Walcourt-Hastière-Couvin) and Hainaut (triangle Beaumont-Chimay-Froidchapelle) from 18th to 25th September 2019.
‘The goal is to start a French-Belgian military cooperation by integrating units in both countries in a civilian environment. It will also allow us to exchange skills and improve our inter-operations action in many sectors, such as radio communication and weapons use’. Yes, you read right, the goal is that of operating on a large scale ‘in a civilian environment’ as happened after the 2015 attacks, but above all that of carrying out an operation meant to improve ‘weapons use’. More precisely, 150 vehicles and 600 soldiers (fifty fifty for each of the States involved) will be deployed in twenty villages, with over 300 taking care of assignment (personnel, examiners, logistics) and… and… and… 100 soldiers who will play the part of rural insurgents euphemistically called ‘opponents’, who hide among the population.

Santiago, Chile: Call for a Week of Public Transport Sabotage & Fare Evasion, 7-14th Oct, 2019

Today, October 6th, 2019 we call on the territory of Santiago-Chile to carry out sabotage and mass fare evasion of public transport systems.
We cannot remain with our hands tied to the attacks by the current government, the increases in fares are not just a minor thing, that is why we make this call to rise against the oligarchy, against the system and capital.
The call is that from Monday, October 7th of this year, sabotage and evade.
A burnt micro bus will not give us back anything, neither will a cop. But it is the action we have had to take against power and its henchmen,
A warm embrace to the political prisoners, to the subversives of the social war.
A bullet to the lackeys and the rich of this country.

Comments Off on Athens,Greece : Revolutionary Anarchist Armed Strugglers Claim Responsibility for Bombing of Mafia Club in Athens

Athens,Greece : Revolutionary Anarchist Armed Strugglers Claim Responsibility for Bombing of Mafia Club in Athens

On the 2nd of October, around 2pm, we planted an explosive device in building 109 in Piraeus, Athens, which was activated by telephone. The reason we made the mechanism work by phone was just to have control of the bomb blast so that no passers-by might have been hit by it.
POLITICAL REASONS OF OUR ACT
1) Building 109 in Piraeus was a mafia club, where a huge women’s trafficking business was taking place from the Balkans to Greece and vice versa, a really big business involving politically active fascists.
2) The center of Athens, and in particular the tourist area of the so-called historical center, is the most well preserved area of Athens, and that is where the anti-terrorist service has a 24-hour presence, so by taking this action, we are sending a message to the Greek state that we have the ability to penetrate and hit targets not only in Exarchia but also in other parts of Athens.
3) In addition, the sound of the bomb has been heard by many neighboring areas of the historic center and this in itself is yet another clear message to the entire AIRBNB tourism industry which is no different from mafia practices, as it drives the world into despair: AIRBNB Tourists, ATHENS IS NOT A SAFE PLACE FOR YOU, RETURN TO WHERE YOU ARE FROM.
So this is the voice of all the oppressed people for whom it is clear that the social revolution will only come through the armed revolutionary struggle.

Comments Off on Greece : No to the Expulsion of Sharareh Khademi: Solidarity Text by Pola Roupa

Greece : No to the Expulsion of Sharareh Khademi: Solidarity Text by Pola Roupa

It is well known that the world we live in is a male world. It’s a world made up of the principles and the “values” of the strong male. On this basis, the state and capitalism were built, a system of political and economic power that flows and will flow forever, sexism and patriarchy, even if it evolves and disguises itself. But there are countries where patriarchy exists with its most raw and extreme characteristics, protected by completely totalitarian states and regimes. Sharareh Khademi fled from such a country, Iran, to protect Diana, her 6-year-old daughter. She and her siblings took the refugee route, reached Turkey via Greece and she is currently in Korydallou prison, awaiting trial on Tuesday October 8 for her second-degree request from the Supreme Court not to be extradited to Iran (her claim was dismissed at the first instance court).
Sharareh Khademi’s story is quite distant, but this woman is with us. A nurse by profession, she married a satrap [government official] and gave birth to her baby girl. Her husband systematically abused her and she had been hospitalized. He was also beating their daughter who is now 6 years old. He accused Sharareh of adultery, and an Iranian court in her city sentenced her to 60 strikes, a felony “punishment” for such charges in Iran. The appellate court subsequently acquitted her of the charge.

Italy: Update on September 20 arrests and coordinates for solidarity contributions and benefits

From September 20, 2019, our comrades Amma, Patrick and Uzzo are in “Le Vallette” prison (in Turin) accused of aggravated resistance to a public official, violence, damage and dirtying. The usual prosecutor’s office of Turin wants to take revenge for the day of February 9, when a demonstration of hundreds of people took to the streets of the city to express anger after the eviction of Asilo occupato and the arrest of some comrades [in the context of “Scintilla” repressive operation of February 7].
On September 20, in addition to the three arrests, many homes were searched, and 11 people on similar charges received a ban on staying in Turin on similar charges. Continue Reading →

Greece: mytilini island Moria camp… : Μόρια 29/9 – ΑΓΩΝΑΣ ΕΝΑΝΤΙΑ ΣΤΗ ΛΗΘΗ – FIGHTING AGAINST OBLIVION ,EN/GR

FIGHTING AGAINST OBLIVION
Death is back on his well-known places, it was Sunday afternoon inside Moria camp. We were not ready so we didn’t make it, we could not take Feride out of his hands. The face of death, blinded us through the glass of the police soldiers helmets. The smell of death almost drowned us through the tear gases. Ali discovered the stone, Narges discovered the flame. Like in an ancient tragedy, we have been more human than ever. They will never admin on the news that our decision to attack was our very last effort to remain humans. One more time the journalists will talk about numbers, they will keep talking about misunderstandings. So that the division never stops… thanks to the rough professional manners of police soldiers, who break into the houses of the poor in Athens. They came late in night along with their political chiefs dragged by the intense smell of human. They are thirsty for our vital liquids… we are getting dried but in this place, fire extinguishers are not enough.
Thousand years ago, not far from here, they were our grandmothers and fathers, who under the whip, were building the palaces of their masters. During the nights, in the detention camps, where the slaves were stuck, you could hear among the sighs, stories of horror. Links of the same chains, that parents tied to their children. A chain of misunderstandings, that reaches until our days. You can still hear the cryings of desperation coming from the same concrete walls and the bloodstained barbed wires. That’s why tourists never visit the ghettos of the modern cities. That’s why the most brutal violence of the states are always directed to those in cages, the ones being punished because of their origin, the ones placed in the basements of the social pyramid.

Athens,Greece : Full update on the intervention on “Athens 9,84” Municipal Radio.

On Tuesday, 1st of October, a counter-information intervention took place at the municipal radio “Athens 9,84”. The intervention was organised by the open assembly of squats, collectives, immigrants, internationalists, and solidarians with the participation of 30 comrades.
The comrades entered the studio after coming into agreement with the employees, and the intervention lasted half an hour. While on air, the intervention made a speech about the squats, immigrants, and the general oppressive and impoverished conditions that prevail. Next, a recorded message which ridicules the regime of terror they are imposing, was broadcasted. To set the record straight, we have to inform that during the intervention there was no conflict with the employees of the radio station. Whoever listened to the intervention on air understood what was the mood, and we expect from the employees to weigh in against the fabrications of the Greek Police and the Mayor of Athens. As expected, the intervention was removed from the archive that gets uploaded on the radio’s website, in an attempt to conceal the political content of the intervention and its characteristics.

FRANCE : FR/DE/EN Attack on Maxéville Prison in Nancy 27/9/19

EN / Nuclear state = Police state
In the pre-evening of the manif against the nuclear waste-dump – project CIGEO « Vent de Bure » at Nancy – we attacked (symbolically) the prison of Nancy/Maxeville, to send greetings to our comrades who are imprisoned and those who are charger by repression. Also to set a sigh for a society without prisons in general.
We marked the walls with the paint, smash the windows of some administration buildings, launch smoke bombs and bengals in the yard of the prison and greet the prisoners with pyrotechnic in the surrounding. The action were protected by crowfeeds and burning barricades on the access roads.
The atomic state always implicates the police state as well. To deal with those « technology of power » is generally linked to the centralization of power an have need for a repressive system to protect it.

México: Anarchic Call to Action from Some Informal Anarchists in Permanent Conflict

We behave badly, very badly and we can behave worse!
The Mexican State, with its dominating logic, continues to accuse us of “provocation” and to impose the pacifism of the “good people”. And now they are trying to go further…
From his morning pulpit AMLO (1) tries to make us invisible, exterminate us, disappear us, this is why he distorts the meaning of the anarchic struggle, of our history and the very meaning of the word ANARCHY. That’s why he calls us “conservatives” while giving lessons to his happy pets, with the consent of the applauding seals who pretend to be journalists every morning at the national palace.
For AMLO, as with all previous presidents (and for all heads of state throughout history), the best anarchist is the one who is dead or the opportunist who renounces their ideas and licks his boots, as is the case of the converted Stalinist Paco Ignacio Talibo (2).
That’s why AMLO lies and points to us as “conservatives”. All of his enemies he calls “conservatives”, including us anarchists.

Hi, I’m Giampi, when I drink diesel I carry around Europe my friend and its blond and hairy beast. A few days ago, we got rid of two things that were sticked on us. A GPS tracker with a SIM card from an italian operator (with an accumulator made of five 3.6V lithium batteries, white and green colored, connected in a series) attached with a magnet to the rear bumper, on the right side. Another GPS tracker, with a microphone (with four batteries identical to the others) was placed in the air vents which are between the windscreen flap and the windscreen.
