Italy: Updates on the anarchists arrested for the “Prometeo” operation (25/06/2019)

(received 25/6/29)

After the arrests of 21 May 2019 for the repressive operation “Prometeo” (“Prometheus”), Robert and Beppe were imprisoned in the Opera prison in Milan until June 21st, while Natascia was imprisoned in France.

In the maximum security prison of Opera, Robert and Beppe spent an entire month in isolation in section 41bis, as there is no AS2 section [“High Surveillance 2”], with only an hour a day of “socializing” by being able to see each other, and the rest of the day with the barrier closed. This “illegal” regime was reported to the judge, PM and guarantor of the detainees, especially since the isolation had not been requested by the judge, but nothing changed for a month.

Saturday, May 25th, a warm greeting of solidarity under the prison was heard and welcomed.

Talks have been authorized for those who have requested it; letters and books have been received and sent even if slowly, they have received money and packages with clothes and food with some arbitrary prohibition on the passage of certain things by the guards (apparently cooked white rice and books with photos of mountain landscapes have been incomprehensibly incriminated). In particular, Beppe received several ill-treatment by the guards, including homophobic insults, missed access to the showers for 3 days, he was not given food for at least twice and after the colloquy he was left alone for at least two hours in a small room before being returned to the cell.

Around June 13th Natascia was extradited to Italy, to the Rebibbia prison. The comrades sent money and parcels of first necessity; she had a cellmate, and after protesting she managed to get at least the door of the cell open. The first interrogation was subsequently carried out, she was able to hold talks with the lawyer of his choice after the unfortunate episode of the lawyer in France, he asked for news of the imprisoned comrades on hunger strike, a press review on the Prometeo operation and some books. A few days later Natasha also joined the hunger strike [started by Anna and Silvia on 29 May in the prison of L’Aquila]. Around June 21, she was transferred to L’Aquila.

On 19 June there was a review [it is a judicial hearing] for Robert and Beppe and two days later, on Friday 21st, they had an interview with the lawyer. As early as the following day, Beppe was transferred to Alessandria, and on Monday was confirmed the transfer of Robert to the prison of Terni. On June 24, the official response of the review arrived, confirming the precautionary measures in prison.

They still have all the censorship of the post regarding the “political contents”.

We reiterate our solidarity, and we invite all to continue to express it, even by sending telegrams, letters, books, which help to keep the spirit of our prisoners high.

Freedom for Robert, Natascia and Beppe!
Not a step back, no remorse.

Italy, “Prometeo” operation: Natascia was transferred to the prison of L’Aquila and started a hunger strike

(Received 23/6/29)

The anarchist comrade Natascia Savio, arrested on May 21, 2019, for the “Prometeto” (“Prometheus”) operation (together with Giuseppe and Robert), was transferred from the Rebibbia women’s prison in Rome to the prison of L’Aquila, precisely in the same section (AS2, “High Surveillance 2”) where are imprisoned Anna Beniamino and Silvia Ruggeri, on a hunger strike since May 29th.

Also in June she was transferred from the prison of Gradignan, near Bordeaux (in France), to Rome Rebibbia, where she was imprisoned for a few days and where she began a hunger strike in solidarity with Anna and Silvia. On 20 June it became known that she was transferred to L’Aquila, so the comrade is actually imprisoned under the same conditions and restrictions imposed on Anna and Silvia.

Solidarity with Anna, Silvia, Alfredo, Marco and Natascia on hunger strike!

Some searches have also been carried out. The main accusation is of “attack with terrorist or subversive purposes”, as they were held responsible for sending three bomb packages arrived in June 2017 to the p. m. Rinaudo (prosecutor in many trials against the antagonist movement and the anarchists) and Sparagna (prosecutor in the trial for the “Scripta Manent” operation) and Santi Consolo, at the time director of the DAP (“Department of Penitentiary Administration”) of Rome.

Some words on the riots of 29th of March

Jasmins and almond trees bloom from the bullet wounds and scars in the bodies of our fallen ones. The coming seeds of self-redress perch on the branches, ready to nourish those greedy-for-life. Drawn in blood; bitterness flows out, becomes fertilizer for the rage. The pine needles fall down embracing the honour of living as negator of servitude. Waves break, embracing the honour of dying fighting. Waters respond to the call of silence, they turn into fire, and a night like the 29th of March make a salutary spill-over. It’s exactly there that our dead friends accompany each of our step. It’s there that Sebastian Oversluij, Lambros Fountas, Mauricio Morales, Spiros Dravilas, Anna Campbell, Dimitris Armakolas, Javier Recabarren, all our comrades that left away, are bursting out of fire caressing eternity.

The night of the 29th of March 2019, we sent solidarity fire to our comrades in Chile, for the day of the Young Combatant. We all gathered, we hung a banner on the main entrance of Polytechnio, we clashed with the cops for some hours, attacking them with molotovs and fireworks; we set a car on fire*, and when the firefighters came they were also attacked. We are happy to hear that two cops were shot during the clashes on the same night in Santiago. We will always stand by the side of the delinquents and hooded ones who take the streets in Chile and everywhere to attack the cops and set the city and the values it represents on fire. Let’s make every day the 29th of March.

*Despite what the media may tell you, this fire was not the accident of stupid kids. Some individuals amongst us, used small incendiary devices to ignite the fuel tank. We did this in memory of our friend Anna who was killed last year fighting state forces of the Turkish Military. We remember her not as a martyr or hero but as a friend; flawed as she was, the fire of her spirit brought us to this moment.

FROM GREECE TO CHILE

FIRE TO THE PRISON-SOCIETY

some stupid riot kids

P.S.1: Stop using whores, pigs, pussies/cunts as insults.

P.S.2: During the riots in Polytechnio and around, there were 2 arrests. Let’s respond violently to the violence of the state opression.

Arrests and searches following a repressive operation against the anarchists in Trentino (Italy)

Arrests and searches following a repressive operation against the anarchists in Trentino (Italy)

During the night and the morning of Tuesday, February 19, 2019, seven anarchists were arrested in various places in Trentino (Italy): Agnese, Giulio, Nico, Poza, Rupert, Sasha, Stecco. One person (Sasha) was placed under house arrest while all the others were imprisoned in various prisons. The main accusations are “subversive association for the purpose of terrorism and subversion of the democratic order” (article 270bis of the penal code) and “terrorist attack” (article 280 of the penal code), with reference to some direct actions that took place in Trentino during the last few years. Other offenses of which they are accused are: “interruption of public service”, “damage”, “sabotage of telematic devices”, “fire” and “transport of exploding material”. At the same time 50 searches were carried out, with about 150 policemen and carabinieri mobilized in the repressive operation (which was given the name “operation Renata”, apparently a name taken from the nickname given to a car used by some comrades). The investigations were conducted by Digos (state police) and ROS (carabinieri). On the same day of the arrests, a press conference took place in Rome, organized by anti-terrorism. It is clear the attempt to hit the anarchist presence in Trentino, pigeonholing and describing the relations between anarchist comrades within a phantom “subversive association” (with leaders, gregari, cashiers, responsible, “covi”, etc.), an accusation trying to distribute as many years as possible in prison.

It is probable that soon the comrades will be transferred to other prisons (therefore the addresses will change). Below are the latest updated addresses.

Santiago, Chile: Truck Torched for Black December by Incendiaries Complicit in Sabotage FAI-FRI

Black December means action and memory, and, like any initiative of direct attack, it comes to life and continues when there is a will to go from words to deed – to break with the normality of the capitalist social routine and the comfort of civic life.

Always prepared for action, we liberate ourselves from the consumerist fever and the behavioral patterns imposed by the social order with its end of year traditions. And so, with planning, cunning and certain precautions, the anarchist attack never stops.

That’s why at dawn on December 28th we set fire to a truck in the city of Santiago, in a suburb of the so-called ‘middle class’. The action was reported by the media and now we can confirm: it wasn’t a short circuit, it was an intentional fire wrought by anarchic hands during the middle of the night in the streets of their disgusting city.

Setting fire to a truck is attacking the mega-machines and structures that contribute to the devastation of the Earth, it is setting fire to the ideas of progress and civilization, it is our contribution to the ongoing agitation against the IIRSA-COSIPLAN project and the construction of thousands of kilometers of roads that destroy eco-systems to facilitate the transit of trucks full of merchandise and accelerate the advance of the city that contaminates our life.

By burning a truck we also sent smoke signals of sabotage in solidarity with the Mapuche rebellion and their struggle for autonomy and territory. Because the blood of Camilo Catrillanca ignites the insurrection against our common enemy which is the State and capital.

We claim this action as part of the Informal Anarchist Federation, a tool for international communication between anti-authoritarians via direct attack, greeting with fire each cell and individual that seeks destructive action against civilization and technology, its structures and the people directly responsible for oppression.

With our action we embrace the comrades Juan Aliste, Marcelo Villaroel, Joaquin García and Sol Vergara; Facundo Jones Huala, the machi Celestino Cordova and all the peñis and lamgen who resist in the prisons and communities, to the comrades in Argentina who remain dignified inside and outside the prison following the recent repressive operation in November; Alfredo Cospito, Nicola Gai and all the comrades in prison and facing trials in Italy, to comrade Lisa in Spain; to Dinos Yagtzoglou, the comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, Angeliki Spyropoulous, and all the imprisoned comrades in Greece and to all those in the USA, France, Brazil, Indonesia, Germany, Spain, Russia and the entire world who continue to fight against all forms of domination.

FROM CHILE TO GREECE, WITH SEBASTIÁN OVERSLUIJ AND ALEXIS GRIGOROPOULOUS IN OUR MEMORIES

FOR TOTAL LIBERATION

Vegan Means Attack: Fomenting A Wildfire Against Speciesism and Moral Anthropocentrism

From back cover:

“There is a war to be waged against society, alongside the non-human animals who refuse domesticated subservience, and who are evicted from their homes due to mass deforestation, human development and technology. Veganism burdened by the millstone of liberalism, fails to critically acknowledge capitalist, industrial civilization itself as the massified, embodiment of anthropocentric domination. Anarchism that fails to challenge speciesism on an individual level reproduces the internalized authoritarian values of human domination. Since speciesism is pervasive in society, it is insulated and well preserved by a comforting normalization – a normalization that aids cultural indoctrination and apathy. Confrontation is necessary in unsettling the socially established comforts and moral order of non-human animal domination.”

Responsibility claim for hit-n-run attacks in Ilisia and Kolonaki

At the point that you realize that the “scum”, the suicidals and the killed ones of this world are the most alive, the most lively viberating figures of it, that’s also the point that you realize its construct of values and its structural violence. We ‘ve been destructed many times by the coldness in the eyes of the people around, we ‘ve been destroyed slowly and brutally while experiencing the everyday death. From the dead time of wage labour, the sucking of every livelyhood from the automization of production, the freezing passionless gazes towards pain, from the miserable survival, the screaming encountering of the unknown in the mirror, to our transformation into information quantums for modern biotechnology, to the psychological depression and the sadness that totally locks the windows of pleasure, of playing, of genuine social interraction. A whole authoritarian complex is created, reproducing death, reproducing the authority of economy, of the state, the patriarchy, the nation, reproducing the values of submission, of self-enclosure, of social elevation, of producing normativities and stigmas.

During the early hours of Tuesday 6th of November, we attacked by hit-n-run the Tahidromiko Tamieftirio of Eurobank, in Afxentiou street in Ilisia, destroying the cameras, breaking all of the windows and the ATM.

Also, during the early hours of Sunday 11th of November, we attacked by hit-n-run a jewelery shop in Kolonaki, at the corner of Skoufa and Massalias street, breaking the windows and the entrance of the store.

All these gems and golden jewelery that were not meant for any of us, got exposed to the night of the metropolitan center. They reminded us of the exposure we feel when we walk alone in the streets, they reminded us of the exposure that each one of us feels towards the social dos and don’ts. That is for all of you – fathers, bosses, pimps, greeks, and those of your people. We collected our pains, our suppressions, our angers, our whinings, our sex drive, and here we are ; we brushed out. If only the time was always so unimportant but at the same time extremely important as it was during the moment in which the windows of the bank were harmoniously and chaotically broken down. We synchronized the one for the other to steal back some seconds of life. Let’s take back our fun – even for a little bit – for those hands that were vigorously laid on us, for those stares that still hunt us, for those university desks and the labour-hours that suck us out, for these skirts that we would like to wear but we never dared to, for our perverted thoughts, for our awaiting desires, for our unexpressed values.

We repeatedly live in the day of the marmot, into the disgusting smell of the metropolitan gutter that sucks us in and throws us out as machines, as roles, as executions of those that were inflicted on us from the day we were born. And, according to ethical norms, we chose the total submission to the aggresive barkings of the dominants of this world. With some exceptions, the choices of whom were faced with supression, violence and death. As a point of renforcement of the anti-authoritarian struggle, we would like to mention some fallens of the social war, dedicating to them the upper lines and the present action. Not to honour them as holy totems, as untouchable memories, only as historical simeology, but as lively war hawlings, as detonators of social and personal doubt, as points of rising and expansion of insurrectional conciousness, as starting point of the creation and bonding of relations, and also as production of radical shapes and contents.

– Alexis Grigoropoulos, fell dead by a cop’s bullet in Exarchia, on the 6th of December 2008.

– Sebastian Oversluij, fell dead by security guard’s bullets during a robbery of a bank in Chile, on the 11th of December 2013.

– Zack Kostopoulos / Zackie Oh, lynched to death by a crowd of bosses, greek householders and cops, on the 21st of September 2018.

– Mikhail Zhlobitskiy, who ended his life in a bombing attack in the Secret Agencies of Russia (FSB), on the 31st of October 2018.

Ps: Comrade Dimitris, have a nice journey. You will live forever in our struggles.

Athens: TWO DAYS OF RESISTANCE TO SINGULARITY-THE FUTURE IS ALREADY HERE (Canceled)

THE FUTURE IS ALREADY HERE

TWO DAYS OF RESISTANCE TO SINGULARITY

Artificial intelligence, databases, augmented reality, high security cameras, digital ecosystems, drones, smartphones with smart advertisements and smart houses that steal our thoughts and turn them into merchandise, spectacle, suppression.

Surveillance. Order and security.

The laboratory escapes the four walls- the laboratory is the whole planet.

All this is what the yuppie entrepreneurs, academics, CEOS and scientists are shouting timidly but yet outrageously from Silicon Valley to Athens. On the 19th of November at the SingularityU Summit the enthusiasts of the technological dystopia will gather at Megaro Mousikis. Therefore, dystopia is here, dystopia is now. Singularity Summit is a gathering that will teach to the aspiring leaders and future entrepreneurs how they will thrive in an environment of competition and high technology. The foundation for all of this are the biggest multinational database companies in the world that govern the whole planet and reign in Silicon Valley, such as Google, Yahoo and Apple. Their dream is being presented worldwide by various arrogant scientists, such as Peter Diamantis, and is being spread to the elites of the international scene. Last year in Milan, now in Athens. The sponsors of this year’s summit here are Kathimerini and SKAI- we’ve always disliked them and they never miss out on reminding us- and the research center Demokritos, that test on non human animals.

The future is already here, but us, our thoughts, our fears, our resistances are also here. Nothing is over – the future is still unwritten.

Dog liberated from his captivity in Italy

The Liberators broke into a semi-abandoned warehouse in Veneto, where for a while a old man had a dog in shameful conditions. It was liberated, cared for and given to a family that loves him like a child. Not pleased enough with having caused suffering and pain to that dog, this old man, after some months, catch another creature to leave it to his fate, in his outdoor dump were once a time there was commercial activity. All day alone, surrounded by rotten water, with rusted bowls, his only shelter was a rotten wood house, his only solace was the few pettings of the few people who pass from there that he was almost beggin for with his sad eyes and need for tenderness.

The little creature was liberated, now he is safe, far from the pain and suffering. The first veterinarian treatments found serius problems due to the state of total abandoment in wich he was, and relentlessly he would die in a few weeks. Now we adress you, for second time. You put the life on an animal in danger, if it’s not clear for you, you do not deserve next to you not even an ant. No other animal will have to cross the gates of your property, dont waste energy on your last years of life, theliberators will be always ready to take action, both in day and night, consider yourself warned.

get yourself a Stuffed animal!

Perro liberado de su cautiverio en Italia.
