‘The heuristic capacity of Anarchy’ by Gustavo Rodriguez

received by email: 22.7.20
Jack Halberstam, a renown queer theorist, committed to the “anti-social project” and active contrasexual militant, begins his book The Queer Art of Failure[1], with an irreverent and fun excerpt, taken from the 20th episode of the 1st season of SpongeBob, which invites us to reflect:
Mr. Krabs: And just when you think you found the island of milk and honey they grab you by the britches…and haul you way up high. Then higher, and higher, and higher until you’re hauled up to the surface flopping and gasping for air. And then they cook ya, and then they eat ya, or worse…
SpongeBob (terrified): What could be worse than that?
Mr. Krabs (in a low voice): Gift shops.[2]
Halberstam, keeping certain “airs of familiarity” with the queer anarcho/nihilist perspective, draws an analogy between the fears that horrify SpongeBob and our daily threats in this living death imposed by domination: “SpongeBob wants to know what is the alternative to working all day for Mr. Krabs, or to being caught in the net of the objects of capitalism when he tries to escape”[3]. His book, as he warns us from the first paragraph of the Introduction, “is a kind of “SpongeBob Guide” to life” where he abandons the “idealism of hope.” Relying on the “low theory” that he borrows and adapts from the cultural studies of Stuart Hall, he bets on the vindication of failure that «preserves some of the wonderful anarchy of childhood and disturbs the supposed clear boundary between adults and children, between winners and losers. And although it is true that failure is accompanied by a set of negative affects, such as disappointment, disillusionment and despair, it also gives us the opportunity to use those negative affects to create holes in the toxic positivity of contemporary life”[4] (the added emphasis is mine).
In these days of pandemic, we’ve seen anarchism at display on the gift shop. It’s been selling under the red clearance label alongside other ideological wares as a politically correct “alternative”; oriented to positivity, construction, cooperation, care, integration and reform, in search of social acceptance and “strategic alliances”. Distanced from that somber Anarchy, always disposed to negation, illegality, conflict and rupture; that is to say, carefully distant from those honorable exceptions of the runaway herd that today, consistent with the praxis, spread the fire in the prairie. That anarchism that’s critical of public health; of gentrification and real estate speculation; of the costliness of life; of the privatization of resources; of industrial pollution; of gender disparity; of precariousness and unemployment; the poor quality of public education; the rise in public transport rates; of political corruption; of constitutional violations; loss of rights; of the inhumane conditions in the prisons; of police brutality; of the death penalty; militaristic interventionism; neocolonialist policies; of the degeneration of political parties; of electoral frauds; of the fascistic presidencies and; of all the deformations of democracy and the perversions of the State-capital; is not the contestation, the rejection and the negation of domination, but an “improved” extension of it that employs identical tactics in search of approval and legitimation, unveiling itself as a neat and efficient salesperson of the gift shop.

CHILE: URGENT – ARREST OF ANARCHIST COMRADES FRANCISCO SOLAR AND MÓNICA CABALLERO
[it, en, es] Arrestati gli anarchici Mónica Caballero e Francisco Solar (Cile)

—————-

Updates 25.7.20

The South Metropolitan Prosecutor’s Office requested preventive detention for our comrades Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar who were formalized this Friday for the posting and placing of explosive devices.
Formalization took place in the 11th Guarantee Court of Santiago, an opportunity for the Prosecutor’s Office to award comrade Francisco Solar responsibility for the sending of an explosive package to the 54th Police Station in Huechuraba a year ago. Both are accused of sending the package that arrived at the offices of the minister of the interior Rodrigo Hinzpeter.
In addition Francisco was charged with the detonation of two handmade devices in the garden sector of the Tánica building, ex Transoceánica, in the commune of Vitacura. Our comrade Mónica Caballero was also formalized with this one accusation.
Given all this, the judge MÓNICA VERGARA, set an investigation deadline of six months, during which time the comrades will remain in preventive detention in the beginning.
Solidarity is our weapon
Solidarity is attack
For the immediate freedom of Francisco Solar and Mónica Caballero

Italy : 15th July 2020: Prison sentence for solidarity

We receive and spread:
Today 15th July 2020 the sentence of the first instance trial was pronounced against Boba, accused of starting a fire that flared up at the prison Le Vallette in Turin on 11th February 2019, following greetings to the many comrades arrested after the eviction of Asilo Occupato.
Once again the court ritual was an end in itself, deaf to the evidence of the facts which put in question not only arson concerning the act contested but also the identification of a perpetrator: the sentence is exemplary, 4 years for arson.
A warning to all those who often gather outside those damned walls in solidarity, an attack on solidarity!

Italy – Manu ( Manuel Oxoli) is free at last

It’s official.
MANU IS FREE AT LAST.
After today’s sentence, 23.7.20 which significantly redimensioned the previous punitive sentences, news that Manu is officially free has also just arrived.
A big thank you to all the people, individuals, groups, collectives, who showed solidarity and closeness to him and to Juan, as well as to Manuel’s comrade and family.
This shameful affair has therefore ended.
It inflames us that with a sentence such as today’s our friend and comrade should never have spent a single day in jail. But it only confirms that it is not in courts of law that justice is to be found. These places only reproduce the status quo, the rules and privileges that support this state of things which often oppress the best people and those who try to free themselves, as well as all those who come last.
It is far from these places that we recognize each other, meet and rediscover one another, will come together again.
With Manu, with Juan, with who seeks justice for the oppressed and freedom.

a blackout occurred in Cremona which left much of the city in the dark; in another episode a telephone exchange would have caught fire: some writings against G5 were found near the place of the fire.

Metropolis of Grenoble, France – incendiary attacks on telecommunications relay antennas (May 2020)

Tour sans Venin group
Who to attribute the synchronized attacks on three relay antennas in the Grenoble agglomeration to? The professional keyboard tappers equipped with political labels, are pitifully dithering, undecided between conspirators and exponents of the extreme left. Crass ignorance. These commentators of emptiness, purchased by the merchants of intoxication commonly called news, are formatting with their words phenomena that escape them.
That said, we won’t use the political label machine against ourselves. If we were more inclined to chatter, we’d call back without waiting a minute longer for the conspiratorial extreme left.

 Received by email: 25.7.20

FRENTE A LA RECIENTE DETENCIÓN DE LOS/AS COMPAÑEROS/AS MÓNICA CABALLERO Y FRANCISCO SOLAR.
El día de hoy, viernes 24 de julio, se ha llevado a cabo una razzia contra las/os compañeras/os anarquistas Mónica Caballero y Francisco Solar, quienes han sido acusadas/os por distintos ataques explosivos ocurridos en la capital de Santiago de Chile.
La irrupción por parte del GOPE y demases polícias se dio en los domicilios de los/as compañeros/as por la mañana, incluyendo un operativo por artefactos sospechosos en el domicilio de Mónica en Santiago Centro. Hasta la tarde del día de hoy se han confirmado allanamientos contra otras personas, desconocemos los motivos y/o vinculaciones.
Recordemos que los/as compañeros/as no son desconocidos/as para el poder, ni para las diversas iniciativas de lucha subversiva autónoma y antiautoritaria. Hace una década, en el año 2010, Mónica y Francisco fueron detenidos/as, involucrados/as y posteriormente absueltos/as en el marco del Caso Bombas I, emblemático caso que buscaba a toda costa condenar a diferentes prisioneros/as vinculandolos/as con diversos atentados anticapitalistas que habían ocurrido (y que siguieron ocurriendo) en la capital y en regiones.
Tras ser absueltos/as en el año 2012, viajaron a España y al año siguiente fueron apresados/as, acusados/as y condenados/as por diferentes atentados explosivos ocurridos en aquel país y tras 4 años de cautiverio en diferentes cárceles fueron expulsados en el año 2017 a Chile.

The night of July 11th, the Volvo belonging to Vince Parente was burned in front of his home in Ste-Thérèse. Vince Parente was just recently named interim associate deputy minister at the Ministry of Public Safety. Besides this nomination, he is the assistant director-general for the Montreal region at the Bureau of Correctional Services. In clearer terms, he is the boss of the prison wardens at Bordeaux and Rivière-des-Prairies in Montreal.
Before rising through the ranks, he began his career as a probation officer and in the transport of prisoners to their appearances, then became assistant warden at Bordeaux prison, then assistant warden at Leclerc prison in Laval, then warden of the St-Jérôme prison. Continue Reading →

On July 25th, demonstrations were held across the US and around the world in solidarity with the uprisings in Portland, Oregon.
In Seattle, Washington, revolutionaries burned down the buildings at the construction site of a new youth detention center. The windows of the building that houses State Patrol and several other state offices were smashed and road flares and rocks thrown at police.
Nightly street fights have been taking place in Portland for the last six weeks between residents and city police and Border Patrol troops. The Border Patrol troops were sent as a show of Federal force, but have been beaten back by unrelenting resistance and growing forces in the streets.

Arson of 7 Police Cars at SPVM Service Garage (Montreal, Canada)

Anonymous submission to MTL Counter-info
Cops are murderers. We burned their cars. You can too.
We used three incendiary devices: square plastic bottles filled about 3/4 of the way with a mixture of gasoline and motor oil. We used super glue to attach two individually packaged fire cubes (which you can find in camping, hardware, and grocery stores) to the side of each bottle.
At each car, we placed a bottle on its side (cubes facing up), pushed it under the tire of the car, and lit the cube.
We chose devices that would fully ignite about one minute after we placed them under the cars. We wanted to increase our chances of getting away and decrease the chances that the devices would be extinguished preemptively.
For a world without the police and the white supremacist order they defend. Solidarity with Black insurgents and everyone else who fights back.

Comments Off on Athens,Greece: Responsibility claim – Solidarity for squats, attack against LIDL supermarket

Athens,Greece: Responsibility claim – Solidarity for squats, attack against LIDL supermarket

Received on 23/7/20

In the night of July 23rd we spayed slogans in solidarity to the squats Liebig34 and Rigaer94 in Berlin on the LIDL supermarket in Neos Cosmos / Athens. After we destroyed all windows with hammers.

Every eviction has its price. This is a message do all responsibles for the aggressive gentrification of many european cities, which allways goes on with the eviction of squats, the state terror against the radical movement and the rising of rents. We noticed the eviction thread against Liebig34 in Berlin and the attack by so called owners and their companies together with the cops against Rigaer94. With the eviction of Dervenion56 in Exarchia the government of ND continious its operations against the combative and solidarity resistance, which we allways will be – with squats or without.

One of many answers to an evicted squat is the destrucion of a consuming symbol the capitalist system offers to the inmates of the prisons called Metropolis. To support the struggle of our comrades in Berlin we found a german company, but it can be also real estate agencies or luxury cars or tourism.

The LIDL supermarkt chain was targeted allready some time ago in Germany because of its bad working conditions for their employees. This action is a solidarity offer to this aggressive campain against the working contitions in LIDL WORLDWIDE. 8 to 10 hours per day with a fake smile for pity money, sitting in front of hundreds of products, in a cashier, becoming a robot which just counts and counts. Or lifting big weights destroying your back. Why all these? Which is the role of supermarkets ?

Supermarket are big financial mechanisms which seem very innocent to the majority of the people. The truth is, they are not.

Colonilization

Supermarket are colonilizing the economies of local societies in all the earth. All the small markets, grocery stores and other kind of shops are shutting down whenever a new supermarket is opening. There is no need for a new supermarket in most of the areas, its just matter of expanding and absorbing. Also, is reducing the use of local products and producers. Slowly slowly, the residents of an area are becoming workers, mainly women, of this industry, losing all their indepentace (even in liberal terms)

Anti-ecological

The opening of chain supermarkets, local or multinational, is also increasing importing of products. This is happening because the production companies are exploiting people in a cheaper way in other countries, or because they make better offers to a multinational company because of the massive consumation. What is happening at the end is a big consumption of petroil by the ships to transfer products all around the world. The paradox of capitalism, the fact that a product from 2000 miles far is cheaper than the local, is killing faster the nature.

Food Control

All these brings us to the bigger problem. Supermarkets are the greatest tool for multinational food companies to takeover all of our nutrition process.  We eat shit, we don‘t produce anything, we need money to buy everything, we need to work for them for ever to be able to buy them and cure our selves from the sickness their food is creating

Do we smash supermarket?
Yes we do. But we have to know that most of the people will not understand why. So we must do more propaganda against this mechanism. And for sure it is better to smash without people being inside. Our target is to spread fear to the side of the bosses not to the side of the random population. But if somebody break a supermarket with people inside without putting someone in danger, its okay, we can overpass it.

Solidarity to Liebig34 and Rigaer 94
We hit the german interests in solidarity with the resistance in the german controlled territory
Solidarity to Dervenion 56 and all the evicted and the still resisting squats in Greece
Support to the workers that suffer in the food and product industry worldwide

Magnesia volos,Greece: In the early hours of Thursday and Friday 17/07/2020 we attacked the building of the Regional Centre of Magnesia with axe and fire, Vassilis Maggos Presente!

Mpeos AGET and government officials, all the bastards are working together

For years now the city of Volos stinks of melted plastic. The percentage of cancer and cardio-respiratory problems keeps rising. The people of Volos have demanded a stop to the burning of garbage and the degradation of our lives in mass demonstrations and protests.

Local authorities (municipal & regional) not only do not share the citizens’ demands but try by all means to increase profitability for the multinationals to the detriment of society and nature.

On June 13 the authorities using their dogs tried to suppress the movement against the burning/processing of garbage with brutal violence, gases and beatings while already set-up prosecutions followed, non-typical investigations in homes and workplaces. The culmination of their repressive attack was the extreme lynching and torture of our friend and comrade Vassilis Maggos. Following the untimely death of Vassilis, our limits have long been surpassed!
In the early hours of Thursday and Friday 17/07/2020 we attacked the building of the Regional Centre of Magnesia with axe and fire, lighting up a little the dark summer night and disrupting the peace of uniformed -or not- State dogs. It was a sample, a minimal form of
counter-violence against the policies practiced by municipal and regional authorities, a small reminder that we are moving around at night ready for everything!
An answer to police and judicial arbitrariness!

Even if we may never win, we will always fight!

Vassilis Maggos Presente!
