Spain: amenaza desalojo puestos tirso molina Madrid

actforfree receved 21/7/20
El pasado domingo 19 de julio, como se venía haciendo desde hace
décadas, los puestos políticos del Rastro han vuelto a colocar de forma
colectiva sus mesas en la plaza de Tirso de Molina en Madrid. A las once de la mañana hemos recibido la visita de unos agentes de la policía municipal, con órdenes de levantar los puestos y sancionarnos si nos negábamos a ello, diciéndonos en primer lugar que carecíamos de licencia y que además el Rastro estaba cerrado por ordenes del Ayuntamiento.
Ante nuestras insistentes peticiones de explicaciones dado que no entendemos por que el Ayuntamiento procede ahora de esta manera solicitándonos unas licencias que saben de sobra que no tenemos han respondido llamando a más refuerzos de policía municipal, mientras trataban inútilmente de excusar, aludiendo a reales decretos, la realidad de esta decisión del equipo de gobierno de Almeida: los puestos políticos molestan en la plaza de Tirso de Molina. Nada han comentado sobre aforos, medidas de seguridad sanitaria, o algo que tuviera que ver con la salud pública como motivo por el que nos impiden montar los puestos: la pandemia es una excusa perfecta para arrebatarnos para siempre nuestro espacio los domingos sin generar demasiada oposición. O eso creen.

Comments Off on Athens, Greece: Incendiary attack to a Ford car dealership by Carmine Night-Flowers

Athens, Greece: Incendiary attack to a Ford car dealership by Carmine Night-Flowers

Received 20/7/20
Besieged bodies among the concrete, between the cameras eyes, crossing daily life with careful but daring steps, moved by an ethic forged by negations.
We are folks that woke up from the social lethargy, having as weapon our solidarity to the fighting individuals towards the world. We want to be the crack that will join the others, destroying a system that represents injustice and “deadly injuries”.
So, at the night of 7/7/2020, we chose to plant four incendiary devices to the Ford car dealership of Sfakianakis company, resulting to three burnt-down vehicles and a destroyed showcase. Our target was totally not random, as this specific company equips the state apparatus with vehicles, and also the moment of our attack coincides the uprising in USA, the homeland of Ford.
By that we choose to be the aroma of night-flower that bungs the nostrils of the decay, and we want this smell to break every authoritarian nose, to close every mouth that pukes shit, to cut every hand that points at our bodies full of racism, homophobia and sexism.

Toulouse, France : Down with (bring down) this world! (June 2020)

In May do what you like*. Several cars had their tyres slashed because of what they represent:
– a car belonging to the Municipality of Toulouse;
– a car belonging to a meat distribution company;
– two cars belonging to estate agents;
– a car belonging to EDF [French national electricity company].
A cutter or an awl on the side of the tyre (not on top of it, there are wires there) and the deed is done! (Warning, sometimes several blows are needed and it can be noisy – apparently an awl makes less noise).
Down with (destroy) this world!

Comments Off on Chile: Spreading Ideas Against Power and Their Society

Chile: Spreading Ideas Against Power and Their Society

Actforfree received by email: Introduction to Estallido Antisocial / Antisocial Outburst, a new anarchist publication from Chile. Translation:
anarchistsworldwide.noblogs.org

SPREADING IDEAS AGAINST POWER AND THEIR SOCIETY
From autonomous initiative as ungovernable individuals we spread anarchy
without expecting the progress of the “social struggles” that leads to
an illusory future state of “welfare and progress.”
The images and feelings of thousands of people fighting in the streets
of Chile before the COVID-19 pandemic are still fresh in our memories.
Also fresh is the conviction that our lives have been in revolt since
long before October 18, 2019, and that in our wild journey we have
wielded a theoretical and practical arsenal that has long since ceased
to be determined by levels of social and citizen acceptance of violent
protest.
We are no longer lost in the absurd idea of considering any person just
for the fact of living in society and we are always happy that more
people are rebelling against normality by vandalizing buildings state
and corporate, looting or attacking the police. However, this does not
mean that we are willing to let the revolts, our ideas and practices
mingle in the midst of mass discourses, humanitarians or reformists who do not represent us.
This is why we deny all typecasting: we are not the people, we are not a
class, we are not a vanguard, we do not proclaim ourselves part of a
“glorious front line” or any other fictitious social or idealized
category to homogenize individuals in the midst of the revolt.
We rebel against all social norms and impositions, aiming at the
formation of associations that are free and consistent with our essence:
individuals in struggle living the revolt as a continuous present that
forges its own evolution in the destruction of the existent, in constant
conflict with authority and hierarchical ways of relating, and for the
permanent construction of anarchic links of autonomy and horizontality
in the here and now.
Nothing more, but also nothing less.
We open this space of communication and dissemination to connect with
other like-minded people, collectivizing ideas, tensions and proposals
that move us away from comfort and stagnation.
For the permanent tension against the State, power and the society that
gives it life.
Against all forms of authority, we constantly strive to bring Anarchy to
life.

Comments Off on Italy- For Manu, for Juan, for collective self-defence 

Italy- For Manu, for Juan, for collective self-defence 

The appeal trial against Manu will take place on Wednesday 22nd July at 1pm, at the court in Brescia. Arrested in May 2019, jailed until March 2020 and now under house arrest, on 22nd November Manu was sentenced to 3 years and 2 months for aiding and abetting Juan, who was in hiding.
With a precedent as odd as it is serious, the court of Brescia not only accused him of “procuring the avoidance of a sentence” but also of “aiding and abetting” with the aggravating circumstance of “terrorism” because Juan, being on the run because of a string of sentences mainly linked to the struggle against the TAV in Valsusa, was arrested after being more than two years on the run and was accused of having attacked the premises of the League in Treviso, something that no one – either Juan and even less Manu – could have known about.

Saint-Herblain, France: Against Advertising, There is Only One Solution – Destruction

Against advertising, there is only one solution, destruction: 6 vehicles burned during a visit to JCDecaux in the night of 12 to 13 July 2020 in Saint-Herblain.

It is unbearable to endure more advertising as much as the government propaganda displayed on these same billboards, this visual and environmental pollution should never have existed.
This text must also send a warning to the municipalities. If you refuse to remove the advertising, we will continue to fight against it with our own methods, but you will also suffer the consequences.
Faced with these nuisances, anyone can take action: a hammer, a window breaker or even a stone and a few seconds of your time to help clean up the public space of these advertising billboards.

Athens,Greece: News updates, from Petrou Ralli Pre-removal Detention Cente (prison for migrants)

The hellhole of Petrou Ralli Aliens’ Pre-removal Detention Center of Attiki, in Tavros, is perhaps the worst environment that a human being who the state and EU deem “illegal” (solely for the fact s/he/@ lacks proper documentation) can experience while in Greece. Detention in this prison normally lasts for months, exceeding the legal time limits, with cases of individuals abandoned there for up to 18 months. Conditions at Petrou Ralli fail to meet even the minimum requirements of a prison: hygiene is unacceptable, meals are inedible, the mattresses are full of bugs, and the blankets unwashed. The most basic cleaning and disinfection procedures are not carried out.
On the 2nd floor, detainees are locked up day and night, released for just 40 minutes in the morning and afternoon for ‘yard time’ on the terrace. The right to free legal assistance for those who cannot afford a lawyer is not granted. Likewise, the fact that detainees have the right to apply for asylum without the presence of a lawyer is withheld, while the applications of those who do manage to submit them are either not forwarded or delayed on the pretext of bureaucratic procedures.

Athens,Greece: Information update for  imprisonment anarchist Vangelis Stathopoulos

The anarchist Vangelis Stathopoulos passed today 17/7/20 , in Loukareos before a special appellant investigator 9 whole months after his arrest. He has been in pre-trial detention in Larissa All this time, far from his lawyers and with minimal access to the case file, so the 3-day deadline he is entitled to for making a statement to the investigator was requested.

Instead, with an order from the high command of the Counter-Terrorism Service, he was transferred back to Larissa on the spot, when even the prosecutor and the investigator insisted on his stay in Korydallos, even talking  about the special treatment of Stathopoulos decided from above. The decision had already been made by the ministry.

We are not impressed by the revenge in the face of our comrade.

It should be noted that since January, the “anti” terrorism has in its possession the DNA laboratory results, which they produced just 4 days before and which confirm his innocence, which our comrade shouted from the beginning.

The prolonged hostage-taking of Stathopoulos is based only on a false testimony, dictated by the prosecuting authorities. Unable to support the fabricated accusations in his face, they aim at the psychological annihilation of the comrade in every way.

We declare that we will not let them cannibalize our lives.

We will be by our comrade’s side until the conspiracy against him collapses.

Volos city, Greece: V. Maggos was savagely beaten by riot cops at a solidarity demo ,1 month later he is found dead

The funeral of Vassilis Manggos took place yesterday (16/07/20)  at the city  of Volos, where hundreds of comrades and people together with he’s parents for the last goodbye…
———————
Vassilis Maggos himself had written on June 18/6/20 :
“Because a lot of people asked, informed themselves, were interested, I think I should make known that I was discharged last night, after 4 days’ hospitalization. Today I went for a check-up, of course my vital organs still have injuries, nevertheless they are in a stable condition and show signs of improvement. To thank all the people who did not let yet another
incident of police violence, arbitrariness and human rights violation remain in silence and darkness and to remind us that we must all keep our eyes open and never give up. I would also like to thank the medical staff who, in the vast majority, first tolerated me and secondly stood up to the situation, taking a stand against the brutality of the State. So, my last photo, from the hospital and my first from home …
And now the difficulties begin …
2-3 months of recovery and who knows how many years and if I’ll find my right …… But … Smile, eh … What do they ask you? “

Vasilis Maggos was savagely beaten by riot cops at a solidarity demo. 1 month later he is found dead

The video that you’ll see depicts the brutal riot police attack against 27-year-old Vassilis Maggos on Sunday, June 14, 2020 in the greek city of Volos, during a rally of solidarity to the detainees of the previous day’s protest (13/6) against the polluting garbage burning by LAFARGE / AGET companies and against the creation of an SRF factory by the Municipality of Volos.
According to myvolos. net, Vassilis Maggos was found dead in his room by his mother yesterday evening (July 13, 2020). “The mother tried to bring her son back to life and notified the emergency services, but it was already late. The police rushed to the spot and examined the area, ruling out any criminal activity and requested an autopsy – necropsy to determine the causes of death of 27-year-old Vassilis Maggos, who almost a month ago had been recorded to be brutally attacked by the riot police outside the Courts of Volos.
According to a post at the time by the “People’s Assembly against Garbage Incineration” the originally posted the above video on June 14, 2020, The young man was savagely beaten in front of passers-by in the center of Volos and was taken to the Magnesia Police Department. In the car that transported him, according to his father’s testimony, the police continued to beat and abuse him. The severe beating continued inside the police headquarters building.
They beat him mercilessly, breaking his ribs until the young man shouted “I cannot breathe”.
At the height of the violence, the police tortured him. When he asked for water, they took him to the freezer and gave him water drop by drop just to torture him and while he could not stand on his legs. In the end, they released him so that he could be taken to the hospital, because he needed immediate medical treatment. His condition was so dire that the doctors were afraid that his broken bones may pierce his vital organs”.
“Amongst his injuries, he had suffered 7 broken ribs and vital organ injuries”.

Comments Off on Lecce, Italy: Without Authority

Lecce, Italy: Without Authority

“It wasn’t the orators who won me over to anarchism, but life itself” – Pavel Golman
This was the expression of a Russian anarchist who, in the early years of the twentieth century, fought without quarter against the Authority and the iniquity that presented itself before him. The defense of property and the wealthy classes meant hunger and misery for everyone else, as well as jail and torture if these interests were undermined. More than a century later, the history of Russian and Polish anarchists, including the anarchists of Bialystok, a small minority of Jewish origin, speaks of the human and ideal struggle against the ferocity of the established order that starves and kills. It speaks of lives living in terror (from Katorga to pogroms, to the demonstrations of peasants and workers repressed in blood) and who respond to that terror in many ways. They study and defend themselves, attack and expropriate. In the general climate of strikes and revolts, they act out of conviction and anger.
It is curious that, today, some defenders of power refer to this experience, recounted in a book published some time ago, to “guard” in their homelands jails some anarchists accused of sabotage and solidarity.
With the arrest, a few months ago, of some anarchists in Bologna, guilty of having sympathized with the protests in prison in times of state of emergency, the theoretical basis according to which solidarity has become a crime has been declared; the umpteenth repressive operation called Bialystok against some comrades, serves to consolidate the fact that to sympathize with the arrested anarchists or with the prisoners in revolt must be incriminated. That to spread and propagandize, in practice and theory, ideas of revolt and insubordination is a crime. That preventing the isolation to which other comrades would be relegated (Operation Scripta Manent) and even defending the wealth of gestures and ideas of the anarchist movement, must be repressed and hindered in order to better strike those comrades.

Comments Off on Athens, Greece : info updates about the Demonstration on 8th of May, 2020 Let’s Take back the streets

Athens, Greece : info updates about the Demonstration on 8th of May, 2020 Let’s Take back the streets

The night of the 8th of May, more than 500 persons took back the streets to express their rage against sexism, the state and the imposed “normality”.
Around 9pm, Agiou Giorgiou square was filled by the first individuals and voices and music coming out from the speakers made clear that “if you touch me again, I will fucking kill you”. Banners were put up on the square with «No god, no master, no husband, no boss», «Rage against the machism» written on them.
A bit more than one hour later, a fiery pink flare started the demo. The front banner : “Reclaim the streets, squat the night. Λύσσα και οργή για καθε σεξιστη (Rabid and rage for every sexist)”. After a few meters, our voices became written words and stencils on the walls, streets and shop windows. They were screaming our rage.

As we were passing Ithakis street, a rooftop was lighted up with flares and a banner picturing a witch saying “From the streets to the roofs we fight back” dropped from the building by the granddaughters of the witches you couldn’t burn.
Upon arriving to Acharnon avenue, the demo was in great spirit, shouting slogans in different languages : «Tout le monde deteste la police», «ακόμα κι αν φορέσω τη φούστα μου καπέλο, όταν λέω όχι σημαίνει πως δε θέλω» (even if I wear my skirt on my head, when I say no it means I don’t want), «Solidarite avec les immigre.es», «H Ελλάδα να πεθάνει να ζήσουμε εμείς, στο διάολο η οικογένεια, στο διάολο και η πατρίς» (to death with Greece so that we can live, fuck the family and fuck the homeland), «Alerta, alerta, alerta feminista»… and gave Ag. Paneleimonas church a much needed hot feminist make-over fully covering it in sprays and stencils.

Updated Info About the Solidarity Fund for Anarchist Prisoners in Indonesia

Free All Anarchist Prisoners

As anarchists we believe, direct action and insurrection is the soul of anarchism itself, while prison and humiliation are the consequences of every direct action we take.
If humiliation is the answer to every direct action, then pacifism is the answer right? Unfortunately not, giving up on pacifism means letting our necks stepped and getting stepped again!
Our comrades in Tangerang and Makassar have decided to fight back against state oppression and must now be locked up in prison, and this is our duty to ensure they are not alone! We did a little decoration in an unused building a few days ago as our solidarity, let’s make and spread solidarity!
Our hugs and love for Makassar and Tangerang anarchist prisoners. Fire for prison! No anarchy without abolition of prisons and police!

He was murdered by police as a result of his actions outside the facility run by ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) near Tacoma, so-called Washington. His action occurred on the one-year anniversary of a hunger strike inside the Northwest Detention Center and an encampment outside.
This year we only managed a small gesture of creative disobedience to mark the anniversary. But the slogan reminds us that no memorial will suffice – only insurgent steps towards the destruction of this barbed-wire world – the border, the prison, and the world that needs them.
We haven’t forgotten Will’s expression of gratitude and affinity to his trans comrades. We returned the sentiments in our banner, a love letter from London to the Salish Sea, in defiance of the ‘reign of death’.
In this gesture, we were also thinking of anarchist and insurgent prisoners and defendants, particularly those persecuted under ‘Operation Fenix’ whose trial continues today in Most. Today there are also court hearings in London, for some of those arrested on the streets under the banner of Black Lives Matter, and tomorrow (14th July) James Meikle, a prisoner on remand, will be sentenced.
In solidarity with all hostages of the State!
One day all the cops you see around you will be dead, but Will lives in our rage forever!

Buenos Aires: Propaganda a 3 años de la muerte de Santiago Maldonado.

Próximo a cumplirse 3 años de la desaparición y asesinato del compañero anarquista Santiago Maldonado, nunca serán suficientes las palabras para abarcar el dolor que genera la muerte en acción de un compañero en manos del enemigo y en el intento recuperador de los reformistas, pero si podemos encontrar aquellas que hablan de nuestras convicciones, de la entrega aún en momentos donde todo parece cuesta abajo, de lxs compañerxs que una y otra vez levantan la cabeza y en la oscuridad de la noche o en la lucha callejera encapuchada reivindican la memoria insurrecta, porque es ahí donde ni el lechuga ni ningún compañerx es olvidadx, cuando no dejamos que el dolor supere nuestra entrega, cuando no claudicamos y afirmamos nuevamente la guerra social que la autoridad nos ha declarado hace ya largo tiempo.
El 1ero de agosto de 2017 no solo demostró el cinismo del Estado
Argentino y la hipocresía de sus colaboradores, también abrió pasos
hacia la solidaridad, sentó precedentes que no podemos olvidar y
necesitamos tener presentes, momentos de efervescencia, de encuentros de miradas eufóricas, de prepararse y estar dispuestxs a todo incluso a pesar de la mirada enemiga en la espalda. Tanto en aquellos momentos, como ahora 3 años después, somos conscientes que no somos lxs primerxs, pero creemos también que depende de nosotrxs no ser lxs ultimxs, hoy más que nunca nos enfrentamos a nuestra propia historia y la reafirmamos, tanto con sus aspectos positivos como aquellos negativos que necesitan
afilarse, pero con la inquebrantable idea que nuestra memoria
reivindicativa es la acción y la solidaridad es un arma que nunca
dejaremos de empuñar.
QUE LA PANDEMIA NO APAGUE NUESTRA RABIA
POR UNA MEMORIA ICONOCLASTA E INSURRECCIONAL.
