Turin, Italy : In the detention centre for migrants in Corso Brunelleschi: a fire every day…

The atmosphere remains tense and edgy in the detention centre of Corso Brunelleschi: during a storm on Friday, a young man took advantage of guards and forces of order’s diverted attention to climb bars and walls and conquer freedom.
Even if the official media present protests and fires with an aura of exceptionality, burning mattresses and the few pieces of furniture left is now a recurring practice to draw attention to the many problems inside, the least being the lack of a barber. Recently prisoners also told us that there was not enough shampoo for them to wash their hair or any fresh water to drink.

Comments Off on Germany: Feminist Autonomous Cells – Because the Night Belongs to Us

Germany: Feminist Autonomous Cells – Because the Night Belongs to Us

Because the night belongs to lovers
Because the night belongs to us
– Patti Smith
For some time now we have been watching with concern the direction in which emancipatory struggles in German-speaking countries have been moving in recent years. We, the people who have been politicized within these structures in recent years, have since felt an ever increasing sense of responsibility for the direction of our groups and movements. At the same time, we have experienced personal concerns and fears about what we should do with our lives and how we should deal with, for example, financial and repressive pressures, that were not adequately addressed by these same structures. Our confidence in the strength of the left-wing radical subculture was wavering. Personal crises coincided with what we saw as structural deficiencies and doubts about our connections and “the movement”:
We were often overwhelmed by the size and number of political opponents and State attacks, remaining trapped in reaction to these external circumstances and were already overworked and exhausted by them. Continue Reading →

Rome, Italy – On the gathering outside the detention centre for migrants of Ponte Galeria on 28th July

On Sunday 28th July about a hundred people gathered outside the walls of the detention centre for migrants at Ponte Galeria in solidarity with those inside. This time they had also intented to greet the prisoners in the male unit, reopened at the beginning of June. Three armoured vehicles and an antiriot squad were already lined up, blocking the road; the police seemed very nervous at the approach of those in solidarity, and stopped them from reaching the male unit. So they gathered near the entrance and tried to break the silence inside the centre with chants to the prisoners.
The male unit had just been restructured to repair the damage following a revolt in 2015, which led to its closure and a new internal organization had been introduced. Prisoners are now split up into six large cells, which are non-communicating, and there are no common areas. Meals are taken inside the cells and mobile phones are seized on arrival. Communication with outside is only allowed through public phones with prepaid cards.

México, México City : Call for action by Féminas Brujas e Insurreccionalistas (F.B.I) [Female witches and insurrectionalists]

WE ARE BAD AND WE COULD BE WORSE: WE ARE YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE!
“Provocation” and “Illegality” is all action not executed by the State that exceeds its laws and regulations; that’s why the authorities insist on presenting the anarchist war against the system of domination as a “provocation” that seeks to unleash repression. But reality teaches us that repression is here now and is practiced by power on a daily basis either veiled or brutally.
The State continues to exercise the monopoly of violence and is only willing to share it with the groups of so-called “organised crime” with whom they share the same DNA, proving that there is nothing new in your Fourth Transformation. As we have always said: they are the same misogynist dogs now with a rose-coloured collar. Finally, anti-system rage has managed to spread fury to broad fractions of the so-called “feminist movement”, sadly asleep until yesterday afternoon. They have finally understood that pacifism is the most active accomplice of patriarchal power and domination.
We have always expressed that we are feminists.
WE ARE ANARCHISTS and for that we struggle against Patriarchy, not for feminism. We know the feminist ideology and see it every day in ‘action’, occupying seats and public positions preaching about our lives and our bodies to propagate “the feminist Homeland” as a comrade from MORENA declared, forgetting (consequently) that the Homeland is the territory of Patriarchy. Neither Martha Lucia Michel nor Marta Lamas nor Marilú Razo nor any of the feminists of the system (politicals, academics and speakers) represent us. Their reaction against purple and black violence, their amasiatus with Sheimbaum only reinforces their status as opportunists in search of a bone, that’s why they lick the boots and suck the eggs of the President. The best example of their complicity is the hashtag #they don’t represent us, affirming that with anti-systemic violence we tarnish “the defence of women’s rights”, promoting complicit passivity and imposing politically correct behaviour of the “good people”.

Mexico City, Mexico: Angry rioting against police rape

12 August 2019
“Cops, pigs, rapists”
On Monday, August 12, 2019, hundreds of women took to the streets to express their anger at the patriarchal and sexist violence of the police. A few days earlier, four uniformed pigs raped a young woman aged 17 in the patrol car in the streets of Azcapotzalco province. This case echoes another, a little older, where a 16-year-old girl was raped by a police officer in the National Photographic Museum in the centre of Mexico City.
The headquarters of the Public Security Directorate was the meeting point of the demo. On the facade of the State building, slogans have been traced to the bomb, such as “we are mean, we can be worse“, “cops, pigs, rapists” or “to attack one of us, it is to attack us all “… Then the procession left for a stroll in the streets of the city and covered the walls with a multitude of anti-police and anarcha-feminist tags; the protesters found themselves in front of the Attorney General’s building in Mexico City to settle accounts. Once in front, the more determined ones tagged the walls outside (“we do not need to be brave, we need to be free,” “pig cops” or “corrupt policemen“) as inside (on the insignia of the institution) and ransacked the furniture of the reception. The facade of the glass entrance also fell in pieces.

Rovereto, Italy : A temp agency under attack

From the local press we learn that in the night between 30th and 31st July, the Randstad agency was attacked with a homemade device, which smashed a window to pieces. A text of claim was allegedly left on the spot, where solidarity with imprisoned anarchists and the anarchists sentenced in Florence is expressed. The same agency had been targeted last September.

Plaisir (Yvelines) France : Triple escape from detention centre– 14 August 2019

On the night of Tuesday to Wednesday, August 14, a Tunisian and an Algerian, both 21 years old, escaped from the Plaisir administrative detention centre (CRA) located next to the police station. A third was arrested on the roof of the building. The alert was given around 2:30 in the morning.
The occupants of room number 13 escaped by opening the bars of the window with the aid of a sheet. Police patrols chased after the escapees. But their search for the last two has been futile.

Madrid, Spain: Two rental bikes burnt

Against smart cities, against green capitalism, against gentrification, against the city.
Against the architecture of consumption, against the commodification of all forms of life, against property.
Against peace, against the absence of tension, against democracy, against authority.
The night of July 26-27 we set fire to two rental bikes in the area of Moncloa (Madrid).
May the heat of the fire and our hugs reach the 3 of Parkbank and all those in affinity.
For conflict, for anarchy

Comments Off on Germany, Dresden : Arson Attack Against Rent Profiteers Vonovia

Germany, Dresden : Arson Attack Against Rent Profiteers Vonovia

Vonovia Remains Undesirable

13.08.19: Europe’s largest listed property group Vonovia once again increased its profit in 2018. The Bochum-based DAX30 company was able to increase its profit to 1.07 billion euros. This means that of one euro’s rental income, approx. 38 cents, IE more than one third, will flow to the shareholders. Vonovia has thus succeeded in optimizing the entire profit segment. But who pays these enormous profits of the company?
It is no big secret nor is it surprising news that they are generated at the expense of tenants. Through questionable settlements, repairs, upgrades and the resulting rent increases, Vonovia succeeds in generating more and more money and then distributes it to its shareholders.

Avis de tempêtes #19/20

Avis de tempêtes – bulletin anarchiste pour la guerre sociale n°19/20 (juillet-août 2019) vient de sortir.

Pour lire, imprimer et diffuser ce petit bulletin autour de soi (il est en format A5, et celui-ci fait 16 pages), on pourra retrouver chaque nouveau numéro tous les 15 du mois, ainsi que les précédents, sur le blog :

https://avisdetempetes.noblogs.org

“Dans le cadre de ces réflexions et dans la définition de perspectives qui puissent nous orienter sur les chemins incertains et inexplorés de la révolte, nous pensons qu’il faut éviter de se confronter à la réalité avec des yeux remplis d’enthousiasmes faciles qui risquent de nous faire
voir des insurrections à tous les coins de rue, des complices dans
chaque indigné, des sujets révolutionnaires dans chaque exploité.

En même temps, nous pensons qu’il est tout aussi dangereux de rester ancrés dans une sorte de réalisme pessimiste qui risque de nous immobiliser par les temps qui courent, de nous transformer en attentistes emprisonnés
dans une logique de type déterministe. Ce qui nous semble fondamental, c’est de se placer dans une optique d’observation lucide qui peut nous permettre de saisir les transformations en cours, d’identifier les aspects vulnérables de l’ennemi, afin d’évaluer au mieux quoi et comment attaquer.”

Frankfurt, Germany: Siemens Car Torched in Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners

During the night of the 12th to the 13th of August we torched a Siemens car in Frankfurt-Bockenheim.
Siemens earns its money by building locking mechanisms for prisons, supplying surveillance technology to Turkey, among other countries, and upgrading Frontex and the EU’s external borders.
We send greetings to Lisa imprisoned in Spain, the Park Bench 3, Loic and all the others who are held captive by the State or on the run. We are with you in our thoughts and our actions, may these sparks of rebellion penetrate through the walls and the bars to you! We continue, despite the circumstances, against the false pacification of the public space and for the moments when we can still feel our love and our freedom.
For a world without prisons, freedom for all prisoners!

France: Vincenzo arrested, convicted for the G8 in Genoa in 2001
Anarchist Vincenzo Vecchi was arrested on Thursday, August 8, 2019 in France. The arrest was carried out by the French police and (as reported by the regime media) was made possible by the contribution of the agents of the “Service for the fight against extremism and internal terrorism” and of the Antiterrorism section of the DIGOS of Milan, which through “a close investigative connection” with the French police were able to identify the comrade. Against him two European arrest warrants had been issued by the prosecutors of Milan and Genoa.
Vincenzo was a fugitive and wanted since 2012, following the final sentence to about 12 years in prison that was imposed for the accusations (specifically, the crime of “devastation and pillage”) inherent in the days of revolt against the G8 summit that took place in Genoa (Italy) in July 2001. Currently he should be imprisoned in a prison near Rennes.
Revolutionary solidarity with Vincenzo and all the imprisoned anarchists.

Berlin, Germany: Google Fuck Off!

Google fucked off?
The expansion continues. The apparent success of  neighborhood resistance is now not long lasting. Because if there is no Google Campus in the Umspannwerk in Kreuzberg for the time being, the company is busy buying real estate in Mitte. After the almost shy inauguration of its offices in Tucholskystr. at the beginning of 2019, another building was simply bought. In the Johannishof, more offices are to be added in the near future. No “bad” start-ups or incubators. Only their staff. Harmless in itself, isn’t it?
So it is not surprising that so far there has hardly been any public talk about it. For the activists from Kreuzberg, Mitte is already burnt earth anyway.  The local residents will hardly feel threatened in any way, because the new neighborhood is too thoroughly gentrified for that.
Google simply tried to gain a foothold in Kreuzberg, failed, but did not retreat. In a metropolis like Berlin there will always be suitable places to settle.

Athens, Greece: The nation, religion and family murder – Vandalism and sabotage of churches

Paint on church

Shit to sexism

Shit to greece
Let greece die, so that we live
ΤΗΕ ΝΑΤΙΟΝ, RELEGION AND FAMILY MURDER
During the early hours of Sunday the 10th of February 2019 , we made our
presence and dislike evident at the churches of agios andreas and agios
sotiras in Petralona. We threw paint at the religious paintings and the
main entrances of the churches, we put glue in the locks of agios
andreas and we wrote messages around the building and on the ground of
its courtyard.
We wrote antinationalist and antisexist messages like
“nation-relegion-family murder”, “let greece die-so that we live”, “shit
to greece” and “no one less”. The murder of Aggeliki in Corfu by her
father was our motive behind this action and through this we want to
showcase our opposition to the nation, family, religion and patriarchy
and all of their values which we’ve hated since we were little. Continue Reading →

Athens, Greece: Antisexist scoutings in Exarchia

In response to the misogynistic culture of Exarcheia and the recent
incidents of rape, sexual harassement and gendered violence in the
streets of the area, we decided to show those who would have us live in
fear that they are the ones with a reason to be afraid. On the night of
the 10th of March we went on an antisexist scouting without the presence
of cis men chanting slogans and demonstrating our ability to fight back.

On the night of the 15th of March 2019 , we went on a second antisexist
scouting by femmes in response to the misogynistic culture of Exarcheia
and the recent incidents of rape, sexual harassement and gendered
violence in the streets of the area. This time even more comrades
participated in the intevention. We will continue being present in the
street and we will be more and more.

Vegan Anarchist Political Prisoner Eric King’s Thoughts on Willem Van Spronsen : usa

EK’s thoughts on Willem Van Spronsen
Today I’m sitting in this cockroach-infested Cesspool called USP Atlanta. Many political prisoners have come through here, if he had survived Willem VanSpronsen would have potentially come through here as well. Instead he offered up his life and the state was more than happy enough to seize it, one less headache for them. I’ve been thinking about him, his action, reading his writings and motives. My heart has ached for him because I know how it feels to care so much you absolutely MUST act. Willem used his personal perspective and scope, thought about what his options were and decided with his heart and brain that he was ready to give up everything to a Cause that meant more to him than anything.
Every action on the “left” allows you to see the worst side of the radical movement, the side waiting to bash, lament, critique and disrespect. Every person and action not pre-approved by this apparent panel of action judges. The judges has always seemed so eager for revolution and action, right up to the point of someone pushing for it, then they pick up their gavels, climb onto their soapbox, raise their voices and begin to attempt to dissolve the person and action. This isn’t new of course, Berkman was blasted, the GJB were blasted, the young Anarchist who killed McKinley in Buffalo was blasted by the whole movement included Berkman!

We send the prisoners and the persecuted fiery greetings. Even if we don’t know them, they are in prison for us.
The city is full of targets. One of them, a WISAG car, was set on fire during the night of August 7 in Berlin-Wedding. During the day, there were still swarms of uniforms in this neighborhood that were carrying out an eviction there. At night the streets once again belonged to the arsonists.
