There are already 800  more pro-Kurdish, feminist and left-wing civilians detained in Turkey in just 48 hours.

Meanwhile theTurkish state is receiving billions from European taxpayers in blackmail money to not to send refugees North.

And both the USA and Russia are wooing the dictator Erdogan as a strategic partner and customer in their insane capitalist expansion,  To the extent that both give permission to invade Syria and to bomb and shell SDF and YPG/YPJ areas practising non ethnic, non religious and anti sexist direct democracy.. to replace them with factions of whatever crazed jihadi drug addicts they can find, as long as they are  pro-Turkey.

HACKERS GONNA HACK
The  person who hacked the repressive Catalan cops, the dictator Erdogan and various sick Capitalists has proved she/he and friends are  STILL FREE and it looks like the police have arrested innocent activists.phineas-fisher
After the arrests in Catalonia and Salamanca Phineas Fisher immediately emailed from his/her account and has now been interviewed on Motherboard using the same unique encryption keys as a year ago and personal information, making it almost certain the piggies have failed and  HAVE EGG ON THEIR FACES.
“I think the Mossos (police) just arrested some people that retweeted the link to their personal info, or maybe just arrested some activisty/anarchisty people to pretend they are doing something,” they said in an email shared through an intermediary with Motherboard.

 Hacker Phineas Fisher Is Taking a Break Because of too much Success and Stress

Last week, Spanish authorities arrested three people in connection to the hack on a local police union last year. Quickly, rumors spread that the cops might have gotten the people behind the mysterious and notorious hacktivist Phineas Fisher, who had claimed responsibility for the attack on the Catalan local police and was also behind the more famous breaches on the spyware vendors FinFisher,  Hacking Team, and on the Turkish government.

All 4 activists are now free , the Barcelona couple were charged  with an unrelated infraction ( having a false skiing ticket?) and the two in Salamanca are freed awaiting citation, all with no bail restrictions, implying that even the police realise they are NOT Phineas Fisher.

We Deny free speech to Nazis who try to Destroy it for Everyone

Freedom against the freedom of speech

With the expansion of neo-fascist and neo-nazi groups in the shadows of ever more racist, xenophobic and sexist “traditional” conservative right-wing political parties, confusion over the significance of the liberal freedom of speech can paralyse radical political criticism and action.  We share below a timely analysis from CrimethInc on the limits of free dialogue when politics must be conceived of as war, as a conflict between ways of life.

We are Not in a Dialogue:

We need Not Just Free Speech……….. but Freedom Itself

antifaschistische-aktion-women-s-t-shirtMaybe you missed this, but you’re not in a dialogue. Your views are beside the point. Argue all you want—your adversaries are glad to see you waste your breath. Better yet if you protest: they’d rather you carry a sign than do more. They’ll keep you talking as long as they can, just to tire you out—to buy time.

They intend to force their agenda on you. That’s what all the guns are for, what the police and drones and surveillance cameras are for, what the FBI and CIA and NSA are for, what all those laws and courts and executive orders are for. It’s what their church is for, what those racist memes are for, what online harassment and bullying are for. It’s what gay bashings and church burnings are for.

China Issues a Nuclear Warning to Donald Trump and the United States

 

The Chinese leadership would rather die (and take us all with them) than accept the immense loss of face of bowing to the absurd macho imperial ambitions of Donald Trump

Beijing — Following comments made by White House spokesman Sean Spicer on Monday in which he said the United States would absolutely protect its interests in the South China Sea, the Asian superpower has fired back through its state-run media — going so far as to suggest China should beef up its nuclear arsenal in the face of Donald Trump’s presidency.

As reported by the newswire service Agence-France Presse (AFP) on Tuesday, “In recent days, Chinese social media has carried pictures purporting to show an advanced intercontinental ballistic missile system deployed in the Northeast.”

That missile system, the Dongfeng-41, was described by China’s state-run Global Times in a Tuesday editorial as “a nuclear solid-fuel road-mobile” system with “a range of 14,000 kilometers and a payload of 10-12 nuclear warheads” that can “target anywhere in the world” and is “widely considered one the most advanced intercontinental ballistic missiles.” Continue reading China Issues a Nuclear Warning to Donald Trump and the United States
