GENOA, ITALY – CLAIM FOR AN INCENDIARY ATTACK ON A HIGH VOLTAGE PYLON

In the night of christmas eve, tired of the artificial panorama of a city ready to celebrate on the capitalist sleigh, we decided to contribute to the illuminations by lighting up a Terna high voltage pylon with cans of petrol. Our little nocturnal present succeeded, illuminating the grey sky with dazzling flashes and some dull thuds. As for today we don’t know how much actual damage was caused, but we do know that Terna might have to add our christmas

ATHENS,GREECE: INFORMATION ON THE TRANSFER OF COMRADE HARIS MANTZOURIDIS TO THE PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL FOR PRISONERS IN KORYDALLOS PRISON.

He was immediately placed in “quarantine”, where he will remain from 4 to 7 days (it is not certain exactly how many).

FREEDOM FOR CLAUDIO LAVAZZA!

From January 7, 2022 we call for solidarity with the anarchist comrade Claudio Lavazza. Kidnapped first by the Spanish state and then by the French state, he has already spent 25 years in prison and although he should have been free since last December 11, the prosecutor of Mont de Marsan who follows his case, emissary of the state’s revenge, continues to keep him behind bars.

STATEMENT OF THE MAFIA SECT AND IRREDUCIBLE ADDICTED TO THE BLACK INTERNATIONAL

“They fought, like the puppies of May play, it was normal; they had time even for prison. Waiting for them outside was The same rage, the same spring…” (History of an employee, Fabrizio De Andre, 1973) 0- Note Not long after beginning to write this text which intends to reaffirm our concrete and destructive internationalist anarchic solidarity, a brutal offensive in the territories of the Wallmapu began at the same time. The hitmen working for the companies with interests in

TO THOSE WHO HAVE A BOMB IN THEIR HEART

In August 2018, two explosive devices, one of which will not work, are placed near the local of the Lega, in Villorba (in the suburbs of Treviso). An action “against politicians, cops and their minions”. Juan, our friend and companion, is accused of this attack and the Court of Treviso is trying him for “indiscriminate massacre” The charge of indiscriminate and infamous massacre reveals the upside down world we live in. The one that has killed hundreds of people in

CHILE: ‘THE RISKS OF MULTIFORMITY’ – WORDS OF ANARCHIST PRISONER FRANCISCO SOLAR

The search for freedom implies the attempt to establish and develop practices in that sense. Breaking with imposed directions, dogmas and predetermined schemes is essential in the construction of anti-authoritarian relations and in the strengthening of these. Multiformity in terms of action (and not only) is circumscribed in this way of understanding and carrying out the struggle. It is an expression of freedom that denies singular rigid behaviors and ways of doing things, as well as encouraging imagination and autonomy.

GERMANY: STATEMENT FOR SOLIDARITY WEEK BY THOMAS MEYER-FALK

To argue and fight for a society free of domination can lead to people being thrown into the dungeons of the respective regimes. There, the bodies are to be locked up in the tightest of spaces and the resistant spirit put in chains, forged against the bare concrete walls. Those who are not willing to submit face a long, a very long time behind bars. But it is weeks of action like now in August 2021 that forge a bond

WHAT’S HAPPENING IN CUBA? AN ANARCHIC LOOK AT THE 11-J PROTESTS.

-Interview with comrade Gustavo Rodríguez (First of three parts) These days we have received a torrent of statements generated in the mass disinformation media about the recent protests in Cuba. On the one hand, there are those formulated by the Cuban officialdom and the leftists of the world in the name of anti-imperialism and in defense of what they still call the «Cuban revolution», on the other hand, there are the traditional right-wing media that accuse the «communist dictatorship» of

ATHENS,GREECE: TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ARSON ATTACK AT THE HOUSE OF GIANNIS PRETENTERIS (GREEK JOURNALIST)

As part of the Cells of Immediate Action, Cell of Insurgent Violence, we take responsibility for the arson attack at the entrance to the house of Giannis Pretenteris. We were not surprised by the condemnations of the bourgeois political parties, of ΕΣΗΕΑ (Journalists’ Union of the Athens Daily Newspapers) , of the government representative. Giannis Pretenteris has proved at every possible opportunity that he is the most loyal mastiff of the corrupt economic and political elite that has ruled this

GREECE: LETTER FROM GIANNIS DIMITRAKIS

Hello comrades, I am very happy that my voice and my thoughts cross the Atlantic and reach you, through a free and self-organized radio station, as it was very difficult for us to communicate closely. Imprisonment, the “dirty” political and criminal records, the enlistment in the anarchist movement certainly make it almost impossible for me to officially enter the United States with permission and documents from the American Embassy in Greece. Today, however, on the occasion of the International Day

CHILE: STATEMENT FROM MÓNICA CABALLERO AND FRANCISCO SOLAR.

Facing what we see as direct interpellations towards us, the need arises to write this text to make clear the issues. As we have written on several occasions both individual and collectively, we understand anarchy not as an embodiment or place of arrival, but as a tension, a permanent confrontation in the first personm putting at the center the search for individual freedom. For us, this constant struggle has been real, which is why we find ourselves today behind bars.
