Warsaw. Barcelona. Roma. Thessaloniki. London.. we meet in joint attack.

Communique from the Bank of No Money, Deptford – London tumblr_n7cq55xmgm1sjpe5no1_500
We are rats running rabid through the stinking guts of London

Sick of the fractured ‘scene’ of squatters in London, sick of faux-punk venues and the fashionable veneer of rebellion, sick of the apathy and passivity, sick of housing where everyone is locked in their own rooms, their own lives, their existence atomised, stinking of fried chicken and choking on the bones of what once was, we came together to act …

We are a collective of those in active rebellion.anonymous-fuck-the-system-disobey-stickerWarsaw. Barcelona. Roma. Thessaloniki. London. All over we meet in joint attack.

We organised on the beaches of London for the TRESPASS gig – selling propaganda to fashion-punx and tourists about the trial of the Warsaw 3, dropping banners and smoke-flares whilst the crowd rioted amongst itself, spitting in our faces and rejecting all politics.

Florence, Italy: Anarchists invite Public to Occupy a new Adventure

translated from 

Better in a Tent.. Speculation and Gentrification make finding a living space an impossible task.
Better in a Tent.. Speculation, Gentrification and mass tourism make finding a living space an impossible task.


 

We decided to occupy one of the many abandoned buildings in the city of Florence to make a place for socializing and sharing, to organize debates, presentations and concerts, to make room for those of us who need a place to be and do activities, to address the social disintegration and lack of opportunity that this city offers us

Florence is run by political powers and local councils for profit and is increasingly distant from the needs of the inhabitants. It is now the practice to sell everything:  the health of citizens, the right to exist of migrants and refugees of war, the dignity of those who have no home, the right to education, the lives of many working men and women.florence-occuipation-2016

The demagogic schemes of the government continue to mystify reality; spreading the culture of resignation, of individualism and conformity, as well as denying the possibility of a social transformation and the creation of a different world.

For these reasons we reclaim spaces and revive them, experimenting with forms of  social and horizontal self-organized centers, is one way to begin to build an alternative society, which does not require an authority and institutions to which we delegate the organization of our existence.

Anarchist Jennifer Gann beaten for Aiding another Trans Woman Prisoner

Support Babygirl Gann!

Submitted to It’s Going Down

Anarchist prisoner Jennifer Gann was attacked by warders at Kern Valley State Prison on September 13th for coming to the aid of another trans woman who was being harassed by guards. The following is an excerpt from a letter that just came in from Jennifer.

Please take some time to write Jennifer a letter, send her some zines, or put a couple dollars on her books. She does not have access to her property, and is being held in the Administrative Segregation Unit, (‘the hole’..solitary confinement), so anything helps.

The Letter

….”I’m currently sitting in a cold, gray, cement cell with nothing but a sink, toilet, bunk, and basic necessities.

I was on D-facility, Tuesday afternoon (9/13), going out to the yard from my housing unit when I heard a CO behind me begin yelling at and harassing one of my sistas. So I stopped to see what the problem was, when several COs immediately turned toward me and began yelling “turn around and get down!”jenniferganndone11x17

As soon as I turned my back to comply, I was assaulted from behind, my face slammed forward into a metal locker, splitting my head wide open, blood gushing, as 4 or 5 guards began punching and kicking me as I lay face down unable to move. They had me pinned down, knees in my back and on my head. They kept yelling “stop resisting!”

Once the handcuffs were on, they picked me up and escorted me across the yard in front of a couple dozen inmates as I yelled out “Fuck the police!” They slammed me to the ground a couple more times and put all their weight on me so I couldn’t breathe! Visions of Eric Garner past thru my mind”. Continue reading Anarchist Jennifer Gann beaten for Aiding another Trans Woman Prisoner

Mexico Jails student Luis for 33 yrs for Ayotzinapa solidarity Demo

luis-fernando-sotelo-b

As the anniversary of the ‘disappearance’ of teachers  approached, the State jailed our compañero Luis for 33 years for ‘damaging property’ at the Third Global Day for Ayotzinapa Protest, two years ago.

Accused of burning a bus Luis has been victimised and demonised in yet another atrocity by the ”terrorist” State. This is not exaggeration, the State really has condoned mass murders and disappearances and everyday torture of prisoners and opponents, as verified by UN and Human Rights reports.

In fact the original Ayotzinapa ‘disappearance’ of progressive socialist teachers was just the culmination of a State-condoned terrorist campaign against them.luis-fernando-banner-free-march

Everyone has always known who is  responsible, the ‘deep state’, the oligarchy of white rulers and landowners, allied with the drug mafia, with their money in Miami, and  backed as always by the USA, are continuing their immoral nazi tactics.

Anarchism in Native America.. + How To Support the ‘No Dakota Pipeline’ Fight .. #NoDAPL

Anarchism in Native America: Remembering the Past, Observing the Present, Protecting the Future

 

– Things have changed a lot since I became an anarchist, not the least of which was learning a lot about the government’s role in regulating just about everything imaginable, and how it negatively affects people. Becoming an anarchist has also given me a deeper appreciation of being Native, as well as the reverse: being Native has given me a deeper appreciation of what anarchism entails.

Yes, I know that there will probably be other anarchists that will denounce me being proud of something that is considered “an accident of birth”, yet they will conveniently overlook the fact that being descended from people who have been (and still are) consistently screwed over by a governing body “for their own good” means fertile soil for a bigger demand to dismantle The State™.

Growing up was not without its challenges.528c8f11a748ff1d7b7d182f586917e6

As a “mixed-breed”, I caught much flak by Natives for being white, and caught flak from whites for being Native. Even now, there’s still a lot of crap given to people who are not “pure enough”, and it’s coming from all sides. I was able to witness firsthand the traditions of my tribe (Oglala Lakota, in South Dakota), to listen to the stories, to watch how government meddling harmed those who were trying to make due for themselves and their families.

Community self-defense Athens Style

from subMedia.tv on Vimeo.

We continue to be in awe, of the spirit of direct action by our anarchist comrades in Greece.

The fascist political party L.E.P.E.N. was gearing up to open its doors on September 18th, the same day that Antifa rapper Killah P was murdered by neo-nazis. A large crew of Antifa comrades went to the new L.E.P.E.N. HQ and demolished it.

This was followed up, by a clean-up of Exarhia Square. Comrades crewed up and kicked out drug dealers, out of this historically anarchist neighborhood.
