Italy, Casale Cremasco: the foot of the antenna smells of burning

via: sansnom Translated by Act for freedom now!
An arson attack occurred during the night against a Vodafone mobile phone relay antenna in Casale Cremasco (in Lombardy, right in the middle of the triangle Milan, Bergamo and Cremona).
The fire was started at the base of the pylon, destroying the cables leading to various junction boxes. The firefighters were called at 4.30am and were able to put it out swiftly, but the damage to the antenna is significant. The alert was given to the firefighters by a security guard passing by on the road. On its electrical cabinets were found the tags “No to digital society. Stop 5G”.
This morning the ROS carabinieri (Raggruppamento operativo speciale, specialized in the fight against organized crime and anti-terrorism) were also on site. Despite the damage technicians were able to put the relay back into operation during the day.

SELF-ORGANISATION AGAINST THE VIRUS OF CONTROL
WHY WE CAN’T STOP THE STRUGGLE DURING COVID TIME
This is a call for all groups, collectives and individuals within the anti-capitalist and anti- authoritarian Berlin city scene.
THE VIRUS IS HERE AND WE ARE HERE TOO!
We are extremely aware of the existence and seriousness of this virus and its consequences on our health, social, economic and political lives. The Covid 19 crisis is the most representative product of capitalism in 2020 and will feature more and more in our lives. Facing the global destabilization caused by the pandemic, we decide not to follow either the denialist – conspiracy theorist and populist perspective of theoretical shortcuts on the origin of the virus, or the institutional perspective that resolves the issue exclusively from a health-security point of view. Neither of these perspectives calls into question the system that has created the conditions that favour the birth and spread of the virus.Our perspective focuses on the radical questioning of the neo-liberal system and tries to propose and construct strategies that can provide ananswer to the social crisis without legitimising the system itself. From our point of view, the only possible answer is self-organisation and experiences of autonomy, as well as a radical reflection on ecologism.
That is why there is an urgent need to organise eachother!
This call aims to be the first draft of a collective and collaborative manifesto; it is a reflection of the impact of the pandemic and the measures that nation states are implementing in order to control the health crisis and us as people.

“Il existe évidemment une différence de degrés entre ouvrir soi-même une porte et être soumis à l’arbitraire d’un bourreau en uniforme, entre un isolement où pénètre à peine la lumière du jour et les rues désertées sur décret, entre privation de sens et substitution du contact humain par celui des machines, mais force est de constater que la vieille métaphore qui disait que la taule n’est pas une extension de la société mais que c’est plutôt cette dernière qui en constitue le prolongement, n’a pas perdu de sa pertinence. Au contraire, même. Alors, si on ne peut s’évader d’une prison sociale qui a désormais colonisé tout espace, si ses différentes cages en poupées russes s’imbriquent et se confondent, quelle autre possibilité nous reste-t-il, sinon de la détruire de l’intérieur ? En cultivant précieusement un monde qui nous soit propre, en repoussant les assauts d’une domination qui mutile chaque jour notre sensibilité, tout en saccageant sans pitié les barreaux et les murs qui nous retiennent prisonniers. Autant d’obstacles vers la liberté, qui ne s’incarnent plus seulement dans la pierre et l’acier, mais tout autant dans des réseaux diffus de fibre de verre et de cuivre qui courent sous nos pieds et volent au-dessus de nos têtes. Si près d’une centaine d’antennes-relais ont été sabotées en 2020 malgré les différents confinements, le fait que ces structures constituent un anneau supplémentaire de nos chaînes n’y est peut-être pas tout à fait
étranger.”

From today, Saturday, January 16, 2021 we will start a hunger strike in solidarity with comrade Dimitris Koufondinas until his request to be transferred to Korydallos prison is fulfilled.
We denounce his violent transfer to the hospital by order of the prosecutor, despite the fact that he has declared that he does not want any medical treatment.
From the prison of Domokos,
Nikos Maziotis, member of Revolutionary Struggle
Giannis Dimitrakis

Note:
Since January 8, 2021 Dimitris Koufondinas, imprisoned in Domokos prison, has been on hunger strike in response to the repressive doggedness of the Greek state against him and the other imprisoned revolutionaries. In December the Greek parliament passed a law that in addition to increasing the minimum time required to be spent in prison before obtaining release permits, imposed restrictions on transfer to rural prisons (facilities where long-term prisoners enjoy a less restrictive regime and where one day is worth three), prohibiting access to this type of detention to those who have been convicted of crimes with terrorist purposes. The day after the law was passed Dimitris Koufondinas was transferred from the rural prison of Kassavetia (in Volos) to the maximum security prison of Domokos, where anarchists Nikos Maziotis and Giannis Dimitrakis were already imprisoned. As written by Dimitris, the law and the transfers are part of a «revenge on those who refuse to sign a declaration of repentance. Revenge on the inmates of 17 November, who see their conditions of detention worsened, revenge on an elderly man and a person with a disability, who are shamelessly handed over to the pandemic. Revenge on all the prisoners who, in order to satisfy the extreme right-wing electorate [of the Mitsotakis government], during the pandemic are piled up like human garbage in miserable prisons, unable to have contact with their families». With the hunger strike he started, he demands the immediate transfer to the prison of Korydallos, in Athens. As a result of deteriorating health conditions, he was transferred to a hospital, where he is under supervision. On January 19 in Athens there will be a demonstration in solidarity with Dimitris and the other comrades on hunger strike.
Dimitris Koufondinas was arrested in 2002 following the dismantling of the marxist-leninist organization 17 November. During the trials that followed he claimed his participation in the organization.

Nota:
Dall’8 gennaio 2021 Dimitris Koufondinas, recluso nel carcere di Domokos, ha iniziato uno sciopero della fame in risposta all’accanimento repressivo dello Stato greco nei suoi confronti e contro i rivoluzionari imprigionati. Nel mese di dicembre è stata approvata dal parlamento greco una legge che, oltre ad aumentare il tempo minimo necessario da trascorrere in carcere prima di ottenere dei permessi di uscita, ha imposto delle limitazioni al trasferimento nelle carceri rurali (strutture in cui i detenuti di lungo corso godono di un regime meno restrittivo e in cui un giorno scontato ne vale tre), vietando l’accesso a questa tipologia di detenzione a coloro che sono stati condannati per reati con finalità terroristiche. Il giorno successivo all’approvazione della legge Dimitris Koufondinas è stato trasferito dal carcere rurale di Kassavetia (a Volos) a quello di massima sicurezza di Domokos, dove si trovavano già imprigionati gli anarchici Nikos Maziotis e Giannis Dimitrakis. Come scritto da Dimitris, la legge e i trasferimenti sono parte di una «vendetta su chi rifiuta di firmare una dichiarazione di pentimento. Vendetta sui reclusi della 17 Novembre, che vedono peggiorate le proprie condizioni di detenzione, vendetta su un anziano e una persona con invalidità, che vengono spudoratamente consegnati alla pandemia. Vendetta su tutti i prigionieri che, per soddisfare l’elettorato di estrema destra [del governo Mitsotakis], durante la pandemia vengono accatastati come immondizia umana in miserabili prigioni, impossibilitati ad avere un contatto con le famiglie». Con lo sciopero della fame da lui iniziato esige l’immediato trasferimento al carcere di Korydallos, ad Atene. A seguito dell’aggravamento delle condizioni di salute è stato trasferito in una struttura ospedaliera, dove si trova sorvegliato. Il 19 gennaio nella capitale ellenica si terrà una manifestazione solidale con Dimitris e i compagni in sciopero della fame.
Dimitris Koufondinas è stato arrestato nel 2002 a seguito dello smantellamento dell’organizzazione marxista-leninista “17 Novembre”. Durante i processi che sono seguiti ha rivendicato la propria partecipazione all’organizzazione.

It is only through struggle that one acquires the steadfastness to struggle. Solidarity is the continuity of the struggle, there where we find ourselves living or where we choose to live.
 The flames of the fire of insurrection hit the vehicle of a police turd, at the crossroads between avenida Santa Fe and Gorostiaga, where the Federal Police Intelligence agents work. We are getting closer. We send a hug to Monica and Francisco. Our anger continues, it is boiling and it won’t stop.

Comments Off on Solidarity for the 8 persecuted students of AUEB (Athens,Greece)

Solidarity for the 8 persecuted students of AUEB (Athens,Greece)

Eight students, members of the self organized , occupied, students’ center of Athens University of Economics and Business are facing severe charges including formation of and participation in criminal organization, charges fabricated under a state police scheme which is backed by the university rector council. Confirming the loose file, authorities fail to detain the eight comrades -due to lack of sufficient evidence- but impose 3,000€ bail for each of the four, along with man-datory report of presence at police stations once a month, while the remaining four are left completely free until the trial.
 Support here: Firefund
Introducing ourselves:
We are 8 people, politically active in the radical / anarchist movement in Greece, particularly in Athens. Among others, we participate in the Self Organized Students’ Center in the Athens University of Economics and Business (AUEB), which is a squat inside the main building of the university. It’s occupied up to 18 years until now, constantly active as a political group, in most of the movements against suppression, racism, fascism, police violence, homophobia, austerity measures, public transports restrictions, anti-immigration and neonazism, or participated in other political acts.
What is happening now and why we are in need of cross border solidarity:
After an action in solidarity with evicted squats that happened in 29th of October 2020 law en-forcement started an attack against the center. The action itself is not to be discussed, we are not affiliated in any way with it or the group that took responsibility. Greek state, is now ac-cusing 8 students and members of self organized student’s center for participating in that, mak-ing them the main suspects of the legal case which will be taken in courts. In 23/12, police sent calls for interrogation for 8 comrades, while the brief of the case hadn’t been filed or formally handed out yet. In 08/01, all 8 comrades were interrogated and passed through the regular pro-cess in front of the district attorney. Confirming the loose case file, the authorities scheme and the targeting of student’s political identity, attorney didn’t decide the prosecution and deten-tion of any of the 8 accused comrades.

In the night of December 17  2020, a repeater near an exit of the G.R.A [long orbital motorway] of Rome was sabotaged by fire.

An incendiary action that brings alive our memory of revenge for the State massacre carried out in the Italian prisons in revolt in March 2020, during the first lockdown.
Throughout these days the revolts of the prisoners demanding health and freedom were bloodily repressed by the security organs of the State. In addition to beatings, transfers and retaliation, 14 people were killed.
The bosses of the media hastily covered up the story, reporting the killings on a par with accidental deaths from drugs overdose.
In the face of the unbearable noise of these lies we respond with a blaze of destructive silence.
Aware of the changing complexity that surrounds us we decide to act because this, none other, is our time.
A warm greeting to all the anarchist prisoners in Italy and the world,
strength!

Estos últimos días no nos hemos quedado en casa. Al igual que muchos y muchas otras no nos resignamos a contemplar pasivos la gestión de la catástrofe por parte del Estado. No aceptamos complacientes como se refuerza una realidad plagada de militares, policías, cámaras de videovigilancia, drones, aplicaciones de rastreo… mientras la pobreza y la explotación aumentan; mientra la represión golpea a las que luchan y a los entornos políticos que no aceptan la pacificación democrática y se siguen posicionando contra el Poder.
Estas noches salimos a hacer una pequeña visita a algunas oficinas de las principales empresas eléctricas, importantes representantes de este capitalismo patrio, vinculadas, cómo no, a las altas esferas políticas del poder ejecutivo. Pintadas y cristaleras rotas como forma de ataque contra aquellos que obtienen beneficio en base al robo y explotación de las necesidades básicas. Fuego a sus vehículos como metáfora antagónica al frío que literalmente hacen pasar a muchas personas.
Que estas empresas, destructoras de la tierra, con sus fórmulas extractivistas y perpetuadoras del colonialismo español, sientan la guerra. Especial mención para Naturgy e Iberdrola, corresponsables junto con el gobierno español (si, ese cogobierno progresista y de izquierdas) de cortar la luz a los y las habitantes de la Cañada Real, al igual que a otras miles de personas alrededor de la península, a la vez que impulsan una subida en los precios muy poco asimilable para gran parte de la población.

Zurich, Switzerland – Paint against the LafargeHolcim company

———————-

In the night of 23rd December we marked the premises of the cement company LafargeHolcim in Zurich-Oerlikon with paint to draw attention to the global crimes against people and the environment and to express solidarity with the struggles for climate justice from Zurich (Eclépens) to Rojava.
We are living in a climate crisis – here and now. The very existence of more and more people all over the world is being being threatened by capitalism through exploitation, poverty, patriarchal and racist violence, wars and disasters caused by man. Let’s start to organize together so as to cease being exposed to this apparent lack of perspective.
In 2018 students went on strike for the climate for the first time and launched the rapidly spreading movement Strike for climate/Friday for the future, realizing that we can no longer see the climate crisis as something abstract in the future, but that it is already a reality today. We think it is important to stay active, even in these Corona times. Because the pandemic doesn’t mean a pause for the exploitation and destruction of the environment but is intensifying the multiple crises of capitalism, so the struggle for living together in solidarity and in respect for nature is still urgently necessary.
Last October, activists occupied the hill of Mormont in the 1312 Eclépens VD and declared a ZAD (zone à défendre – zone to be defended) of the Hill to oppose the extension of a concrete quarry planned by LafargeHolcim, which has already destroyed half of this hill rich in biodiversity. This quarry is the sixth-largest emitter of greenhouse gases in Switzerland. In order to produce concrete, limestone needs to be burnt at 1,450 degrees Celsius, and such high temperatures can be only achieved by using fossil fuels and burning waste as an additive. On the other hand, sand needs to be added to concrete for building, and a shortage of suitable sand is already becoming evident all over the world.
When LafargeHolcim talk about sustainable construction, it is nothing more than cynical greenwashing, because concrete construction can never be ecological. The fact that the Swiss multinational is literally walking on dead bodies for its profits is demonstrated by its practically endless list of crimes: the eviction of peasants in Eclépens and other areas, the poisoning of people in Nigeria, hundreds of fatal accidents of its workers and the list goes on and on.

Yesterday two people detained in the CPR of Gradisca tried to escape from the structure; sadly their escape attempt didn’t succeed. They were arrested and tell us that they were beaten by the police who took them back to the concentration camp. The other people started shouting at them to stop but the police quickly hasted to silence them with violence too, we are told.
From inside they tell us they can’t take it any longer, that they are lost in a dark hole, they are cold, don’t have any clothes and have to put their dirty things back on when they wash. Their courage and determination in trying to free themselves from the condition of everyday humiliation and imprisonment show us that all the attempts to annihilate human beings typical of structures such as jails and cpr don’t succeed in their intent.

Leipzig, Germany : Army Jeeps Set on Fire in Solidarity with Antifascist Prisoners

via: https://attaque.Translated to English by amwenglish
————————————
Late on the evening of December 31, 2020, we set fire to seven Bundeswehr [German army] jeeps in the Mercedes parking lot in Leipzig-Schönefeld. The military deserves our attention as part of the toolbox of state repression, along with the other institutions which in recent years have been attacked on New Year’s Eve.
Many valid arguments can be used to criticize the Bundeswehr: it is in war (“large-scale missions abroad”). She is there to enforce, by force, the interests of the German state around the world. It is an authoritarian structure, filled with right-wing networks and characterized by macho relations. Along with the military platform at Leipzig-Halle Airport, the city of Leipzig, which aspires to a good reputation, also has a military structure that can operate all over the world.
