Abused ADM Occupiers ”donate 100m Euros” to Gangster Speculators, Amsterdam

Amsterdam: ADM Action at Chidda Vastgoed B

# ADM Occupiers threatened with eviction of their amazing alternative reality in their squatted island have launched a surreal Publicity Action .

They ”donated 100m Euros” in a giant golden box to the family of a gangster Speculator who stand to gain at least that much in public money if the eviction goes ahead

The ADM occupied area, which includes an abandoned harbour, warehouses and forest has become  living European symbol of both cultural freedom and a possible route to an anti capitalist future. We can also argue that by organising Festivals continuously over many years the Adm has  attracted billions in wealth and goodwill to the Dutch city.

The ADM is due for eviction from Christmas day 25th December 2018.

Statement by ADM about the action at Real estate company.

Originally published by ADM.      Today we went to the headquarters of Chidda Vastgoed BV to present a cheque of 100 million euros to the heirs of Bertus Lüske in a massive golden box. There were about 50 people at the action, and none of the heirs of Lüske came out to pick up the present.

Why did we do that?
The city of Amsterdam gives an absurd gift of 100 million euros to the heirs of Bertus Lüske, by evicting the residents of the ADM.

Due to the eviction of the residents of the ADM site and by allowing demolition- and asbestos removal company Koole BV to move to the ADM site, (while their activities are not fitting with the perpetual clause that is part of the site), the value of the site is increasing enormously. Money that shouldn’t go to the real-estate mafia but back to the citizens of Amsterdam! Continue reading “Abused ADM Occupiers ”donate 100m Euros” to Gangster Speculators, Amsterdam”

Banksy’s Balloon girl Self-Destructs after $1.3m Auction.. mocking Art Speculators

Going, going, gone! A piece of art by Banksy self-destructed immediately after being auctioned off  at Sothebys in London.

The balloon flew away.. The elusive world-famous British street artist Banksy has reportedly pulled off one of the greatest art heists, allowing his own painting to self-destruct, just moments after ‘Girl with a Balloon’ had fetched over £1mn at auction.

Art lovers and collectors appeared shocked the moment Banksy’s Girl with a Balloon shredded itself into ribbons immediately after hammering a record of £860,000 (£1.04mn or $1.37mn with buyer’s premium) at a Contemporary Art Evening Auction at Sotheby’s London on Friday.

The 101cm-by-78 cm canvas in an artist’s frame, annihilated in front of the auctioneers by a mechanism apparently hidden within the base of the frame, with just strips left to admire from the 2006 masterpiece produced by the famous-yet-anonymous British artists and attendees at the event appeared to be in “complete confusion” the moment an “alarm inside the frame started going off as the gavel went down,” Robert Casterline of Casterline Goodman gallery told Hyperallergic.

 

While some tried to figure out what just happened, others reportedly noticed an elusive man dressed in black sporting sunglasses and a hat “scuffling” with security guards immediately after the fiasco. This led some to speculate that Banksy might have personally carried out the stunt.

“We’ve just been Banksy’d,” said Alex Branczik, senior director at Sotheby’s, according to The Art Newspaper. “He is arguably the greatest British street artist, and tonight we saw a little piece of Banksy genius.”

The unusual heist of the artwork is completely new for the art world and, while the piece was lost forever, the scraps and remnants could now be worth more than the original intact masterpiece itself. “You could argue that the work is now more valuable,” Branczik said. “It’s certainly the first piece to be spontaneously shredded as an auction ends.”The auction house is now trying to figure out what to do next. “We have talked with the successful purchaser who was surprised by the story. We are in discussion about next steps,” Sotheby’s said in a statement to the Financial Times.

 

Girl with Balloon was one of the “most widely recognizable images” ever painted by the anonymous British icon. The spray paint and acrylic on canvas that was mounted on board depicted a small girl in black and white reaching out towards a red, heart-shaped balloon attached to a string.

“Unlike the other editioned iterations of this famous motif, the present work is a rare unique painting that was given to the present owner by Banksy in 2006 following the artist’s warehouse show, Barely Legal, in Los Angeles,” Sotheby’s said of the lot.

Rojava, Uber, Patriarcado ..Entrevista con el Antropólogo Anarquista David Graeber en Madrid

David Graeber: “En Rojava saben que no te puedes librar del capitalismo si no te libras antes del patriarcado”

La mutación del capitalismo, la uberización del empleo, el poder del feminismo, la lacra moral de la deuda o el origen de la desigualdad son algunos de los temas que trata en esta entrevista el antropólogo estadounidense David Graeber, que visita Madrid para participar en un evento en apoyo al pueblo Kurdo y la revolución de Rojava.Image result for rojava and the spanish revolution

Como un proscrito ideológico, este antropólogo y activista da clases en la London School of Economics, tras ser expulsado de Yale y ser rechazado de todas las universidades de su país, Estados Unidos, por declararse anarquista. Fue uno de los líderes del movimiento Occupy Wall Street, aunque él odia definirse así.

Su libro En deuda: una historia alternativa de la economía (Ariel, 2012), marcó un antes y un después en los estudios antropológicos y ha hecho temblar la concepción y todo lo dicho anteriormente sobre el dinero, la deuda y la evolución de las relaciones humanas en un plano económico y moral.Image result for fall of us imperialism 2018

Recibe a El Salto con el pelo despeinado y lamparones en los pantalones. Tiene prisa porque quiere ir a visitar una exposición sobre la Guerra Civil —su padre fue voluntario en las Brigadas Internacionales en defensa de la República Española en 1937— pero se toma con calma responder a las preguntas.

Far-right politician Jacob Rees-Mogg gets home-visit by Crazed Anarchist Vandals

Posted on: 7 August 2018    By: thecollective   Shared from … /anarchistnews.org     via 325

How many people would love to tell Jacob Rees-Mogg to go and fuck himself? Well, last night we did so in joyful fashion. We paid a little visit to the countryside just outside of Bristol, to his mansion called Gourney Court in the quiet village of West Harptree.Image result for greatest mass killings of british empire, meme

For those of you who are reading this and do not know who this man is, he is one of the most detestable members of parliament ever, and fuck me they’re a bad bunch. Other politicians claim he is the one truly ruling this country from behind the scenes. Here are some of his charming characteristics…

He is extremely wealthy, staunchly Roman Catholic, a clear friend to fascist groups and has his eyes fixed on being the actual political leader of this fucking prison island (after May decomposes fully).

He was raised by his nanny. After prep school he attended Eton college and then Oxford university (for the poshest people in the country).

Him and his wife have a 100 million quid together, they just bought a new house in London for 5 million, he makes 168,000 pounds a year from his partnership in a hedgefund business called Somerset Capital Management that is worth 7.5 billion pounds (apparently it invests in tobacco, mining and oil and is based in offshore tax havens, for those who care about such details). He proudly claims he has never changed a nappy in his life despite having 6 kids.

He uses his religion as an excuse for his xenophobic views. He is opposed to same sex marriage and contraception, he is against feminism, LGBTQI people and specifically gender re-assignment.

He is opposed to abortion in all circumstances including cases of rape.

He has argued for the abolition of environmental protections and for fracking, he is pro fox hunting and has also argued for the Conservative party to be almost entirely white skinned.

He is opposed to immigration, he supports zero hours contracts and loves the equally charming DUP (Northern Irelands right-wing Democratic Unionist Party) and the Conservative governments billion pound deal with them.

He fucking idolizes Margaret Thatcher and we’re not even done yet… Continue reading “Far-right politician Jacob Rees-Mogg gets home-visit by Crazed Anarchist Vandals”

Pola Roupa gets life plus 25 years jail accused of blowing up Greek Central Bank without victims.

Pola Roupa, a member of Greek urban guerrila group Revolutionary Struggle, has been sentenced to life and 25 years imprisonment over the bomb attack on the Greek National Bank and the offices of the IMF in Athens in April 2014.

The attack destroyed the front of the National Bank. Nobody was hurt, as people who conducted the attack took precautions and informed the authorities before the blast, allowing enough time for evacuation.

According to the prosecution, the attack could have been much more damaging if not for the security guard who managed to lower the metal shutters at the Greek National Bank before the evacuation, hence preventing the total collapse of the building. Should the building have collapsed it would likely have  resulted in the destruction of Greek banking system and massively damaged the Greek economy.

Self-managed and housing projects built in squatting areas such as Ca La Trava, Armadillo or the Expropriated Bank are threatened with eviction in the Gracia barrio suffering the pressure of tourism and the increase in prices in the purchase and rent of housing

In the neighborhood of Gràcia 2 occupied social centers have a threat of eviction Ca la Trava and the Expropriated Bank (El  Banc Expropiat),  separated by a mere 500 meters, they are different projects in the fight against the progressively imposed model where  traditional neighborhoods and businesses still struggle to coexist  in the face of real estate investors, promoters and tourists.

In December 2016, a group of students, workers, etc occupied the buildings located at numbers 154 and 156 of the Travessera de Gràcia in Barcelona. The first block was called Jahnela and hosted the ‘Gràcia Housing Office’ occupied project. Next door is Ca La Trava. “We organized ourselves at the Housing Office of Gracia, a group that offers solutions to the various housing problems, either by stopping eviction, defending neighbors in cases of real estate harassment, or by helping to squat to guarantee everyone access to decent housing, “they explained to their founding manifesto.

The block of Ca La Trava is property of the ‘ Inmobiliaria Mar SL’, also owned by the huge developer and construction company ‘La Llave de Oro’. ” It was in disuse for a long time and when we entered, we found it deliberately damaged to make  it uninhabitable” assure the occupiers

Negotiations with the City Council and property began  Ca La Trava. After the first attempts to get the council to buy the blocks, in a process that delayed the order of eviction and finally did not fructify, the fate of real estate goes through the eviction and fell through they were scheduled for demolition to build ‘luxury homes. We are now facing a ”precautionary eviction” through criminal law, against which we will resist “, affirm the residents.
