“Copenhagen, Denmark

In the night between the 17th and 18th of October we vandalized the entrance of the Argentinian embassy in Copenhagen with paint. We also wrote the name Santiago Maldonado and a circled A.

We did this because the Argentinian state is responsible for the disappearance of the anarchist Santiago Maldonado that happened more than two months ago. A few days after our action we heard the sad news that his dead body had been found. The state and the police are responsible! We are angry!

Some anarchists.”

Text from Anarchist Comrades About the Recent Anti-Anarchist Raids in Porto Alegre

via INSURRECTION NEWS

Hello comrades!

We write to give news of the storms that devastated our homes…

This morning from 6AM a police operation (Operation Erebo) was unleashed against spaces, squats and homes of anarchist individuals. They say via the mass media that this is only the beginning with 30 individuals under investigation and that they will continue the raids.

They have constructed according to their way of thinking an international criminal organization, a ‘gang of evil’, formed to attack power and its structures.

The incendiary attacks that occurred are true…we are what we are and in that we will not back down: We are anarchists, we love freedom and yes, we despise all the values and institutions that this war machine called capitalism and civilization is comprised of.

Let the news spread and solidarity be manifested.
Long live anarchy!

AGAINST ”OPERATION ÉREBO”

AGAINST “OP. ÉREBO!”
Tormentas de Fogo

Police started the so called “OPERATION ÉREBO” aiming to prosecute anarchists in Porto Alegre city, south region of the territory under domain of bra$silian state. This operation is an attempt to arrest anarchists that supposedly took part in informal activities since 2013.
About this case, we don’t have nothing to say but the necessary:

WE DON’T SPEAK THE ENEMIES LANGUAGE

It doesn’t matter if they are “guilty” or “innocent”, much less if they were “right” or “wrong”. Morality is the language of trials. We fight against laws, because its oppressive nature exists only for maintaining “order and progress”, both responsible for human misery. We stand against prisons and therefore we do not cooperate to fill this human warehouse. So we strongly support all anarchists prosecuted by the state’s genocidal machine.

WE DO NOT BELIEVE THE MIDIATIC SPECTACLE

As always, the media takes advantage from this recent episode to form its spectacle. The news tries to paint anarchists as part of one single group as a way to give deputy Paulo César Jardim and his dogs from the Civil Police some credits. The moment of the rotten nation we live in is very fragile and therefore it is clear for us that media has only political interests which we despise.

THERE’S NO WAY TO ARREST AN IDEA

Neither one nor a thousand police operations will be capable to, as they say, “demobilize” our fight for freedom. Anarchy rises from the gaps of authority and technological domain, and that is why the powerful won’t stop us. Our passion for freedom is stronger than every cell.

OUR ENEMY DOES NOT WANT OUR FREEDOM

To stand against operation “OPERATION EREBO”, means affirm the complicity with all persecuted anarchists. We will rise, we will not hide. For each threat of the state, strike back and disobedience. Solidarity is more than a word, it is an insubmissive action.

WE ARE EVERYWHERE!!!

“We are anarchists, we love freedom and yes, we despise all the values and institutions that this war machine called capitalism and civilization is comprised of.”

To all rebel comrades

I write to all those who build their paths of autonomy, to remember that within these walls we try to apart our vital time from the machinery generating moments of lucidity in a suffocating world… This is how, in those years, there were proposals of resistance, isolated struggles in forgotten areas, lost cry of rebellion in obscurity, collective moments of informal organization in the daily life of the open regime, that is to say, in the [prison] population in general, where, almost three years ago, came up the idea of creating a different space where prisoners could shout that we are enough from all this annihilation; we know that the prison system is designed to subject our bodies and our minds to the structure of commerce and that is why we are not going to ask them to change, we know that money is the language of the powerful and that is why we do not have any requests, now we want self organize our lives on these walls because we know that what their social rehabilitation programs seek is to create submissive, repentant, and guilty human beings and this is why therefore they accept slave labor in the hands of prison officials.

Thus, the idea of founding an alternative library in the auditorium of the Northern Reclusory came up. But for this project of autonomy to grow and to allow its operation, we need your support and solidarity, because within prison we are more effectively repressed and therefore, this is a call to all those who know we are at war, we need you, only with you can we reach the strength to face the rotten logic of the system…

Do not leave us alone in building another space for autonomy, our struggle is no less important, we are also slaves, children of war, we are poor, called criminals and therefore we are marginalized, but together with you, we will prove that we are capable to live the freedom here and now, even being behind stone walls…

That is why we ask for support to maintain this project, the autonomous library in the North Reclusory.

With love and strength for all.

Fernando Bárcenas.

Concerning the juridical situation of our comrade Marcelo Villaroel Sepulveda… or How state’s revenge perpetuates itself in silence

via publicacionesrefractario

translated by tormentas de fogo

Last September, at the 4th Military Prosecutor’s Office in Santiago, the refusal of the petition to prescribe the sentences made by our comrade Marcelo several months ago was notified.

Immediately, Marcelo appealed to this refusal, leaving the resolution of the appeal in the hands of the Martial Court, where it was reaffirmed in the first days of October.

These condemnations correspond to some causes originated by actions framed in his old militancy at the “Mapu-lautaro”, organization in which our comrade was an active fighter since a very young age and of which, while imprisoned, in 1995, he was expelled because of “anarchist deviations”.

Marcelo served his sentence without interruption for 11 years, two months and fifteen days from October 13, 1992 until December 28, 2003, remaining only his night prison until March 2005, when he granted the so-called “probation”, which obliges him to sign a document every week until completing 20 years of penitentiary control.

The first days of November 2007 for Marcelo are marked for him by his participation on the Bank Security robbery, along with other other comrades, action in which a cop died and that caused an answer from the State without precedents. Marcelo decides to assume clandestinity, and in February 2008, in his absence, he has his “probation” revoked.

In March 2008, he is detained in Argentina and in September 2014, he is sentenced to 14 years for 2 bank robberies.

In that same period, as penalties related to old causes emanated from the always sinister “Military Justice” were revised, the condemnation remained as it follows:

– Illicit terrorist association: 10 years and 1 day.

– Damage to a cop car with serious injuries to carabineers: 3 years + 541 days.

– Co-author murder qualified as terrorist: 15 years and 1 day.

– Theft with intimidation, Law 18.314: 10 years and 1 day.

– Explosive attack against the embassy of spain: 8 years.

In total, these old convictions compute 46 years, establishing its end on February, 2056.

There are a number of irregularities in this math, and although the legal issue is not our focus it never was, we believe that it becomes urgent and necessary to face this situation that at all lights represents a clear revenge against a comrade who holds high subversive autonomous and libertarian convictions, a comrade who has never abandoned the direct confrontation for total liberation, nor has it ever renounced its combatant history — leaving it as a commodity for books or prizes of borrowed stories, where hundreds of renegades hides while roaming around different pseudo radical spaces.

Our call is to get rid of the verbiage and the false gestures of solidarity to face this and each of the revenge that come from the State (as a constant policy against all those who do not deny their ties and convictions).

It’s time to act, to realize that no comrade in prison is alone.

FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF ALL PRISONS!!!

AS MISERY EXISTS, THERE WILL BE REBELLION!!!

Fire in solidarity

This night a Orange vehicle (telecommunications company) was torched on the parking lot of the Post Office in via Sadi Carnot in Bagnolet (territory under domain of french government). Plastic bins, cables, and fiber optic burns very well… it’s not that hard!

A greeting to the incendiaries of t, all those those who come into play. Death to resignation, death to politics!

A thought of solidarity with Kara and Krème – and for Italian anarchists affected by repression for the case of Florence and Script Manent.

FIRE AND FLAMES AGAINST THIS WORLD!

“DESTROY ARGENTINA!”

via CONTRAINFO

“Those are not just words: we reached the “level” of direct action and they lie about us because they fear us. Not everything that happens hits the system’s newspapers! Even ours! And everything runs really fast, comrades. Revolutionary vertigo, which shakes up the heart: it was what we wanted and finally what we’ve got. Let’s not flatter ourselves. As our beutiful comrades from Portugal warn us, let’s be intelligent: neither “library anarchism” nor “self destructive punk”, fine? We don’t make up anything. We met el Lechu and better listen to us very well those who now claim he is a public figure… He is, to say, one of us: ANARCHIST! Enemy of the state, the capital and the shitty “social peace” of those who now (…and may a lightning fall in the head of those who call him “ayahuasca junkie”) whip his missing doing politics with our ideals. We are not “infiltrated”, as those people conniving with the spectacle cluck every time it burns passion for the anarchic revolt.

In August 31, the building of GEOF was torched… the “anti terrorist” Federal Operations Special Group building in the middle of the burgeosie neighborhood of Palermo… plenty Buenos Aires downtown, and the shitty media has hidden; they did the same thing with a lot of offensives that, did not even go through their heads, could strike their power structures.

GEOF building

After the demonstration, on September 1, the 35th Gendarmerie battalion was almost torched with Molotovs (were they “infiltrated”, too?).

In La Plata, we torched a part of the senate, and then there was an attack on the security ministry, with a wounded gendarme and burned cars, with no arrests.

After the demo in Buenos Aires, where 31 people were arrested, without even being at the barricade of Avenida de Mayo, the media again said that everything was calm until about twenty hooded ones attacked the government building and were, by little, near to burn his filthy office.

It did not end there: the headquarters of the gendarmerie were destroyed in a coordinated action of great risk and great bravery…

We can not fail to mention the repression in Cordoba! Police officers entered several anarchist spaces (information about that are circulating in the networks), in the provincial capital, and took drums and banners. The fascist newspaper “La Nación” now aims at the former FLA (Argentinean anarchist federation), which has now become an anarchist cultural center, let us stay alert … If they touch one @, they touch all @ and even if the repression become stronger, we will make their worst nightmares turn into reality.

We thank the CONTRAINFO for its work and also to all those who (everywhere) support our struggle until death against all authority.
