Madrid, Spain – Some electricity companies attacked and two Iberdrola vehicles set on fire

15th January 2021
We haven’t been staying at home these days. Like many others we won’t resign ourselves to passively watching the State’s management of the disaster. We don’t accept the consolidation of a reality consisting of soldiers, police, CCTV cameras, drones, tracking apps… while poverty and exploitation are on the increase; while the repression is striking those who fight, who don’t accept the democratic pacification of the political milieus, and continue to stand up to power.
During the night we visited various offices of the main electricity companies, representatives of this national capitalism clearly linked to the high political spheres of executive power. Windows painted and smashed, one form of attack against those who profit from theft and exploiting basic needs. Fire against their vehicles, an inverted metaphor of the cold into which they are forcing so many people.
Let these companies, destroyers of the earth with their extractive activity, perpetuators of Spanish colonialism, smell the smell of war. A special mention to Naturgy and Iberdrola, responsible along with the Spanish government (yes, the progressive leftist government) for cutting off the inhabitants of Cañada Real’s electricity [a shantytown in the suburbs of Madrid] and that of millions of other people all over the peninsula, while putting up prices with expenditure that is almost impossible for the majority of people to meet.

On Saturday 5/12/20, with the end of the “free movement” of the citizens, we attacked an ELTA branch in the area of ​​Peristeri, and destroying the ATM and the frond doors of the building. Our action is a minimal tribute to the memory of the anarchist Alexis Grigoropoulos and a statement that even now that the masks have fallen and democracy shows its true face, we will continue to fight it by any means.

Ljubljana,Slovenia: Statement of Rog factory about eviction , and Everyone on the streets, against the social destruction of the city!

Ljubljana: Everyone on the streets. Against the social destruction of the city!

Dear residents of Ljubljana, the whole municipality and all that come here to work, study or because of other obligationas and free-time activities! All are witnesses to the violent intervention of Municipality of Ljubljana (MOL) in the space of Autonomous Factory Rog (AT Rog).
Protest, Friday 22.1.2021 at 18h at Prešernov trg
What happened to the community of AT Rog can happen to many of us. Especially if they do not belong to the rich and property-owning well-off part of society. What happened in Ljubljana can happen in any other town. Violent expulsion of less well-off individuals, families and other communities is written in the fabric of capitalist system of extraction. The so called legal order and the so called rule of law have been exposed many times as instruments that were established mainly in the interest of financial and political elites. Moreover, the state and municipal authorities chose to exploit exactly the moment, when many hardly manage to make ends meet due to changed living conditions as we deal with the issue of basic mental, physical and economic survival. They base themselves in repressive measures, financial punishments and the police apparatus. Any and all political activity outside the parliamentarian arena is forbidden. Schools are closed, rent and other living costs are rising constantly, the workers’ rights are being taken away. They declared war on the people and it is important to understand this.
What is happening to Rog is aggressive social cleansing. The people of Rog were thrown out on the street in socks, without their coats and were made homeless. Places and dreams were taken away from hundreds of creative individuals, sportists, circus artists, skaters, rollerskaters, bmx-ers, dancers, tattoo artist, activists, migrants – truly the people that represent a clear and present danger to the society!
It is obvious that the eviction was prepared well in advance and in secret as a joint effort of MOL, police and at least 2 private security companies. To achieve their goals they used intimidation, beatings, pepper-spray, they detained at least 13 people, 6 needed ER treatment. The police was violent and absolutely went far beyond its legal powers, which is also what it does every day on the borders of Fortress Europe. Whose laws are these? In whose name? It is clear that the present circumstances enable the rulers the imposition of a new paradigm of governance, that is not only temporary. It is clear that all this is taking place no matter the content of various political proclamations of those in charge. It is clear that the mayor Janković uses his seemingly leftist credentials to cover up his neoliberal management of the city. It is clear that both the mayor of Ljubljana and the prime minister of the government of Slovenia are neoliberal predators who destroy what people built collectively and with hope for a better future. Social devastation, destruction of the social and elitization of cities are the wishes of all the ruling authorities, of the municipal, state and also of those of the european masters.
For the sharply dressed gang from MOL our places represent just a commodity to be used for profit-driven trade that brings benefits only to “the mayor’s men and their companies”. On the symbolic level the violent evictions of squats point to the general social climate – they point to suppression of any and all critical expression and resistance to the ruling ideology and structures of authority.
True, maybe AT Rog and its communities were not everyone’s cup of tea, but the aggression that we are faced with, serves as a stage and a warning that is directed toward all of us with the express intent to intimidate and humiliate. In 15 years of its existence the community of AT Rog for sure did not have all the solutions at hand, but it did play an important role in the fight for the city that would be open for all. It put in enormous efforts so that Ljubljana would become more inclusive and accessible for many marginalized groups of people that struggle with finding their place in the city. Besides that the community of Rog represents one of the few obstacles to the process of capitalist destruction of the city – i.e. gentrification. It is this sense that AT Rog is important for the wider society also due to its long-lasting political and social engagement on the side of those that strive to establish conditions for decent living, work and creativity for all – also for those on minimal wage, for the precarious and for the unemployed. Autonomous spaces are places of encounters, joy, happiness and above all the growing of a social fabric beyond normative relations.
We will not bow our heads before the orchestrated force of the authorities and their mercenaries! We will not accept our expulsion – as in Ljubljana also in other places!
The coalition of Janković and Janša – fuck off, you and you uniformed thugs!
In light of recent protests and the experience of the destruction of Rog, police repression cannot be ruled out. This is why everyone should take care for each other! We are still in the midst of an epidemic, so we need to be safe from the virus as well – mask up!

Ljubljana: Stop demolishing autonomous spaces, everyone come to ROG

Comrades! Many of you have stayed, fought and loved one of the two squats in Ljubljana. For 15 years Rog was a centre of political activity in the city and in the international movements. Today 19 January 2021, Rog factory was brutally evicted. Many of our comrades were violently beaten and arrested. We are calling for solidarity all around the world. Let’s show the oppressors of all kinds they are messing with the wrong movement!

Statement of Rog factory about eviction

Today, at 7 in the morning, employees of the security company Valina have forcefully entered the spaces of Autonomous factory Rog. Violently, using physical force, they injured some of its users and evicted everybody. Our personal belongings, pets and valuable equipment were left inside, together with 15 years of our dreams, activities, projects, adventures and common experiences. Police has erected fences around Rog and started to beat supporters gathering in support in front of the factory’s gate. In the inside of the complex workers have demolished majority of side structures and smashed windows on the main building that is protected as heritage. At the same time they are taking away, on the unknown location, all the equipment from Rog. More then 10 persons were held in custody, among them some of the injured that need medical help. We do not have access to them and we don’t have information on where all of them were taken.
In the last decade and a half hundreds of users have been using Autonomous factory Rog for their activities and thousands of persons have attended various events in its spaces. Migrants, persons on the edge of society, artists that haven’t succumb to the dictate of capitalistic culture, skaters, graffiti artists, circus artists and others, who despite the pressures of capital, municipal security and police, make this city alive and enable life worth living.
Since the opening of Autonomous factory Rog Municipality of Ljubljana does not tolerate a fact that we show mirror to their gentrifying politics. Their policies are transforming the city in a Disneyland for tourists and putting profit over people. This is a reason why they have announced a total war against us. After years of unsuccessful and publicly unpopular legal prosecutions of users the authorities today decided for a legally disputable, violent break-in and a complete demolishing of the space. Regardless of the fact that they don’t have any ideas or financial means for future development of the area. Even more, not long ago municipal authorities have publicly stated that they haven’t got any concrete plans for Rog in the current mandate. There were no information about this obviously carefully planned attack, not even on last night’s session of the municipal government. After all these years of activities and public promoting of the dialog that the municipality has long time ago abandoned, we would expect at least a decent deadline to conclude our current projects, protect our belongings and a constructive discussion on municipality’s plans on potential eviction of users. Instead, Ljubljana municipality was lying to the public, elected councilors and us.
The attack on Rog is not taking place in a political vacuum. In the last months we are witnessing various attacks on civil society, Radio Student, Metelkova 6 and other publicly critical actors. In times, when political engagement is reduced to a low-minded public exposure of disobedient individuals in right-wing media outlets, municipal authorities have as well decided to use deceitful means on the territory, which is propagating itself as safe sanctuary against the current governments’ phalanx. Today, Municipality of Ljubljana has clearly demonstrated on which side it really stands. Evicting people in the middle of a severe epidemics is preposterous for the municipality that is continuously selling its image as green, social, cultural and solidary capital. After its unsuccessful campaign for European capital of culture with a motto “Solidarity”, all masks have clearly finally fallen.
What can you do in support of Rog?
1. COME IN FRONT OF AUTONOMOUS FACTORY ROG. Let’s show them that we are not alone. We can’t let autonomous spaces fall one after another! Attack on one is attack on all!
2. SEND A PROTEST LETTER TO MUNICIPALITY AND POLICE! PUBLISH IT ONLINE!
They have to be made responsible for their crimes, violence, profiteering and corruption. We can’t enable that they sweep under the carpet their profiteering plans and contentious acts.
3. SHARE INFORMATION, INVITE FRIENDS AND COMRADES.
Right now we don’t fight only for our dignity. We fight for being able to exist in this city. We fight for everything that is not capitalistic, gentrified, privatized, polite, tidy; for everything that breathes freely and does not allow to be captured by the profit logic that manages our common city.
Against the opportunistic synergy of fascists, police, municipal profiteers and capital! Save Factory Rog!

Después de año y medio en clandestinidad, esta mañana sábado 25 de enero, han detenido en territorio portugués al compañero Gabriel Pombo Da Silva. Con orden de búsqueda y captura internacional por supuesto pendiente de pena de más de diez años (una venganza personal convertida con «detalles» jurídicos), Gabriel continuaba dando batalla y aportando su propia contribución a la lucha anárquica con sus textos. Actualmente se encuentra encerrado en una celda de la policía judicial de Oporto en espera de comparecer este lunes en el juzgado donde se debatirá su posible extradición al Estado español. Gabriel se encuentra bien y está bastante tranquilo pese a todo.

Solidarity gathering under the Marassi prison in solidarity with Francesco (Genoa, Italy, January 22nd, 2021)

This morning [January 21st], the cops visited Francesco at his workplace. The comrade is an anarchist convicted for October 15 [a demonstration held in Rome on October 15th, 2011 against the EU’s economic measures, where the police were violently attacked, some areas of the city severely devastated, vehicles set on fire, including a police vehicle, banks attacked, dozens and dozens of cops injured in various ways; for these events there were convictions for «devastation and looting»]. He should not have been returned to prison given his sentence of less than 4 years. To this, however, the cops found a way to add another two definitive sentences, increasing the sentence by 4 months. They found a way to bring him back to prison.
Since evil never comes alone, they also proceeded to search his house, with negative results.
Let’s meet tomorrow January 22nd at 6 p.m. in front of the Marassi prison to greet Francesco and all the prisoners in solidarity.
No backward steps!
Freedom for Fra, freedom for everyone!

accused of ‘possession of explosives’ is scheduled in the Elvelpidon

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.

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.

More than 200 people have gathered in protest outside Cardiff Bay police station over the death of a man who died on Saturday 9th of January hours after being released from police custody.
Protestors marched to the station from Cardiff’s city centre, chanting “no justice, no peace” and demanded the force release CCTV of the 24-year-old’s custody stint. Some held signs that read : Black Lives Matter and “stop police brutality”.
Mohamud Mohammed Hassan was arrested on Friday evening after reports of a disturbance at his home, and released the following morning without charge.
But he was later found dead at his house..On Saturday evening – his family claim he was assaulted while in custody, with lots of wounds on his body and lots of bruises…
