Update on the trial against accused anarchist bank robbers – Aachen (Germany)

from insurrection news  with thanks    This is a call to solidarity with the anarchists accused of robbery in Aachen. It is a call to maintain the links between the rebels and the oppressed wherever possible throughout the world.

In 2015, a comrade from Amsterdam was arrested. She was accused of having participated in a robbery in 2013 against the Aachener bank in Aachen. After a few months spent in preventive and several weeks of trial, she was finally acquitted and released. Nevertheless, it can be assumed that the Aachen Prosecutor’s Office will appeal this verdict and go to the revision court.

In April and June 2016, two other comrades, this time from Barcelona, were arrested and incarcerated by the Spanish state, accused by the same prosecution office of having participated in another bank robbery.

The two were then extradited to Germany in June 2016, where they have since been under the U-Haft regime (investigative preventive prison). The trial against them began in January 2017 in the Aachen Justice complex and it is scheduled to run until May 22, 2017.

Flood of Fracking Gas from US will Arrive Soon in Spain #NoAlFrackGasDelTrump

UPDATE The Frack gas won’t arrive in Spain yet.. The tanker la Mancha Knutsen went elsewhere and the next danger is the ship Cadiz Knutsen #NoAlFrackGasDelTrump

STOP the  Frack Gas that Gas Natural Fenosa is bringing to Spain

 

* It is proposed to use the hashtag #NoAlFrackGasDelTrump  to inform and promote resistance to Fracking Gas

Gas Natural Fenosa (GNF) has a contract to receive hundreds of cargoes of the Fracking Gas glut in the US which is causing innumerable cancers, poisoned aquifers and has produced a  methane cloud  visible from space that greatly exacerbates the global climate crisis.

The GNF contracts havbe been signed for 20 years beginning in August / Sept. 2017. But we have found out that some shipments will arrive beforehand  during test period. The destination is in secret but will probably be to Barcelona, which has most storage space,  or Valencia.

Flood of US Fracking Gas due to arrive in Spain

GNF has already chartered 4 ‘LNG Knutsen’ tankers to do the business. One of them, the new ‘La Mancha Knutsen’, has just left Algeciras (30  March) for Sabine Pass in Louisiana, where the gas is to be collected in the form of LNG (Liquified Natural Gas)

This information is according to the  Vessel Finder Site HERE … see destination. Arrival at Sabine Pass April 20th

Faced with these facts, it is more than preobable that they will start with their immoral and criminal Frack.Gas business that seeks private profit in destroying the climate and the world biosphere, and poisons the air we breathe.

If the La Mancha Knutsen is really on its way to pick up the first load of Frack-gas for GNF it will arrive in Spain between the 10th and 20th of May, 2017, which leaves us time to find out which port it will come to.

Can a Fascist Dictator be Elected? YES.. and Erdogan threatens Prison, Dismissal and Death to NO voters

The  referendum in Turkey is to give the president Erdogan nearly total dictatorial powers. But can a Fascist Dictator really  be Elected?

YES because in this case Erdogan has already seized dictatorial powers.. he’s supposed to be a generally symbolic president yet see below  the endless list of atrocities he has ordered.

But is he a fascist? Well, he is the absolute power in the populist far right AKP party which advocates extermination of 18 million kurds and the creation of an Ottoman Empire.

Though he screams and bullies abroad he is at home a master manipulator, head of a criminal family and business mafia, adept at abusing nationalist, sexist  and racial prejudices and feelings of resentment (even working class resentment against rich europeans) to whip up frenzied mob fervour and pursue witch-hunts against Kurds, leftists, feminists, Gulanists, minorities and anyone who dares to criticize him (or is a friend or family of any of the above).

Is this fascism.. in my definition YES. The referendum in this climate is a black joke, with every kind of pressure imaginable against No campaigners, with zero international observers coming, and with the most recent elections in Nov 2015 described as ‘stinking of mass fraud’.

For an Anti-Fascist, Revolutionary Unionism!.. IWW African People’s Caucus

Image result for Twin Cities IWW African People's CaucusBy Twin Cities IWW African People’s Caucus   April 5, 2017       Fascism is a concept that has grown a lot of particular interest since the election of Donald Trump and the failure of neoliberalism. While we don’t consider Trump himself to be a fascist but a right wing populist, we do recognize that he has mobilized a broad coalition of the right, which includes some fascists.

However, reactionary violence is nothing new to black and African people living in the United States. Our communities have seen first-hand the terror campaigns of proto-fascist groups such as the KKK, and other kinds of organized white supremacist violence.Image result for Twin Cities IWW African People's Caucus

Our oppression and exploitation have been central to the establishment of modern capitalism in the Americas. This also means we have been fighting back since we were brought here. Our stake in anti-fascism is not an academic question. Continue reading For an Anti-Fascist, Revolutionary Unionism!.. IWW African People’s Caucus

‘Week of Solidarity Against Repression’ Across the World

By  It’s Going Down      The idea for the Week of Solidarity Against Repression started as networks of friends began talking, thinking, and writing about the build up of repressive forces following the inauguration of Trump. This reality manifested itself in the felony charges leveled at over 200 people arrested in the mass kettle in Washington DC on January 20th, over 800 water protectors targeted by grand juries, and over 100 antifascists in Sacramento who await the ruling of the local DA.

During the week, we saw a wide variety of actions, from people vandalizing one of Trump’s golf courses, wheat pastes and banner drops in small towns, to large fundraising events throughout the country, a mass educational event in DC, rallies organized by the General Defense Committee (GDC) in Minneapolis and Seattle, and much more. We also saw inspiring solidarity from across the world: in Greece, at the ZAD in France, and in Germany. Continue reading ‘Week of Solidarity Against Repression’ Across the World
