20.09.19: According to the latest reports from Bulgarian media, antifascist comrade Jock Palfreeman, who was granted parole yesterday, has been released from Sofia Prison but transferred immediately to the Sofia Busmantsi Immigration Detention Centre […] . According to the media this is because Comrade Jock does not have a valid passport or identity documents. He will remain at the detention centre until he receives a new passport. It is not clear whether he will then remain in Bulgaria or leave the country.
Comrade Jock was filmed and photographed being escorted from the prison by plainclothes officers to a waiting car. Comrade Jock yelled out to waiting reporters “Thanks to Desislav Traykov, Deputy Chief of Prison!” before being bustled into the vehicle. Desislav Traykov recently resigned from his post following a scandal involving a 16 year old drug trafficker.
Many sectors of the Bulgarian political elite are outraged at the release of Comrade Jock, however media reports indicate that the decision to grant Jock parole is final.
Today four years have passed since the “Röszke riot”, the attack of the Hungarian riot police and TEK (counter-terrorism unit) on protesting migrants against borders and limitation of freedom of movement in 16th of September 2015. During and after this riot, eleven people were arrested and later faced a court trial. Ahmed H., one of the arrested eleven people was convicted for terrorism and sentenced first to 10, than to 7 and on the last court instance to 5 years prison.
On the 19th of January 2019 he was supposed to get released on parole, after he finished two thirds of his sentence. But instead of returning home, he was transferred to the immigration prison in Nyirbátor, in the east of Hungary.
He was waiting for months there for Cyprus to renew his visa, which expired during the time he spent in prison. He used to live in Cyprus before his arrest for more than ten years together with his wife and children. He left the country and ended up at the Hungarian-Serbian border, because he accompanied his parents from Syria to Europe. Read the rest of this entry »

Pria di morir sul fango della via,

BURNING HEARTS CANNOT BE LOCKED AWAY
FREEDOM FOR THE THREE ON THE PARK BENCH!
On the night of 8 July 2019, three of our comrades were arrested on a park bench. On the same night there were several house searches in various districts of Hamburg, during which some of the people were forced out of their beds with weapons. The suspicion, according to the Attorney General’s Office, was the preparation of an arson attack. On 9 July, the three were brought before the magistrate. Two of them were remitted from custody and the third had her arrest warrant suspended, with conditions – she has to report once a week and is not allowed to leave the country – and she has been on the outside ever since. A evaluation trial for the pre-trial detention was requested by the defence and then withdrawn two weeks later. A new date is not foreseeable at the moment.
Currently DNA was taken from the two prisoners for comparison. The person outside did not have to give any DNA, since the alleged traces found are only male DNA. The two in custody are doing well, considering the circumstances. Since the LKA (State criminal police office) officials are present at every visit, the visits that take place twice a month for one hour depend on the LKA calendars. Telephone calls (1 hour per month) and letters are also monitored, listened to and read by the LKA,
the prison and the General Prosecutor’s Office. Accordingly, there is never a moment of private communication between the two and their friends or family. It is clear to them what this place should do to them – but they keep their heads up and share solidarity and contact with fellow prisoners. Read the rest of this entry »
A regional headquarters of New Democracy (ND), Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, was attacked at dawn on Thursday (12⁄09) with an explosive device, in another incident of these characteristics in just two weeks.
Tenants from a neighboring building alerted the fire department. The attack caused extensive property damage. So far, no group has taken responsibility for the offensive.
“This is the second attack on ND’s offices in a few days, this time in Pefki, it’s a continuous attack on democracy.”
While waiting for more updates, we learn from the regime’s press that this morning (September 20th, 2019) a police operation led by the Digos (“political police” force of the State police) of Turin led to 14 precautionary measures throughout Italy. The alleged crimes (according to what reported by the regime’s media: “aggravated injuries”, “resistance to a public official”, “damage” and “dirtying”) are related to the demonstration of February 9th, 2019, in Turin following the eviction of Asilo Occupato, on February 7th in the context of the “Scintilla” repressive operation (for which, at present, only one comrade, Silvia, remains in prison).
On February 9th a march in response to the repressive operation moved through the streets of Turin, also trying to get closer to Asilo (completely surrounded by police and carabinieri, and meanwhile devastated by the police and the workers assigned to the closure of the building), to then turn in conflict against the city and against what daily frames the existence of the oppressed. During the demonstration, some people were arrested and later detained at the “Le Vallette” prison, and then released a few days later.
Chillán, Chile: An explosive device at the headquarters of the Chilean police was deactivated a few hours before the arrival of President Piñera (August 20, 2019)
During the early hours of August 20, 2019, in Chillán, a suspicious object attracted the attention of the security device implemented pending the visit of President Sebastián Piñera.
Outside the main investigative barracks of the PDI (“Policía de Investigaciones de Chile”, which together with the Carabineros de Chile is one of the two police bodies of the Chilean State), located in Vega de Saldías, and which borders a police headquarters located in the center of Chillán, an explosive device was deposited without initially arousing suspicion.

Contribution to the international meeting against the techno-sciences (Italy – July 2019) by anarchist Dino Giagtzoglou, prisoner of the Greek state
I start this letter with a certainty. I am sure that our life experiences are very different as well as the starting points of the struggle of each and every one. I also think that with many of you we have different ideological origins and disagreements or contrasts on individual issues. But I firmly believe that the will to resist the plans of Domination, stemming from the awareness of the fundamental social alienation that alienates us from ourselves and nature as a whole, and the revolutionary passion for the destruction of the mega-machine of Power unite us in a common vision of a world free from the shackles of civilization. By going through a variety of analyzes, striding kilometer distances and eliminating in practice the language obstacles, since we recognize that there is the community of struggle for total liberation, we can really keep the flame of the revolt lit and the wager of the social revolution open. I therefore send a warm greeting to the Resistenze Al Nanomondo collective and to all the participants in the international meeting against the techno-sciences, expressing in advance my eagerness to fill the gaps in knowledge, that my absence will undoubtedly cause, by studying your reflections, your conclusions and everything you can get me through the actions and collaborations that will come from your fermentations in Italy.
But let’s take things in turn. For 21 months now, I have been pre-trial detained in the Greek prisons because I made the decision, like many fighters around the world, to realize my ideas by taking a battle position in the social war and fighting against power, here and now. So I am in prison because I put my ideas into practice beyond the limits of the law and certainly not by accident. Read the rest of this entry »
Various institutions, environmental groups, trade unions and student groups gathering under the name “Fridays for Future” have announced a so-called “Week for Climate” from the 20th to the 27th of September. Basically this week consists of programmed and alienating demonstrations in which the State and other institutions (UN, G7 etc) are being asked to remedy or take action against the disaster they are causing. In their simplistic and reformist discourse they never criticize the cause of the ongoing devastation: industrial techno capitalism and its technocratic organization of the world. They are the ones who criticize climate change without criticizing those who produce it: they have a corpse in their mouths, those who defend the myth of progress, of sustainable development and of a ‘comfortable’ life in exchange for slavery and the commodification of every aspect of our lives, a life sold to technological domination. They are the ones who have purchased the new fashionable product, climate change, from the supermarket of rebellion. Fridays for Future? Today more than ever the future does not exist, we live in an eternal present and any vestige of the past has been erased. The technological prostheses that surround and colonize us make us live in a continuous state of sleepwalking, where the catastrophe is not about to come as they insist on warning us, the catastrophe is here and now, the catastrophe is the alienating life directed by the algorithms of our ‘virtual assistants’, the catastrophe is a world already devastated by industry.

In recent weeks, as already written, Beppe was transferred from the AS2 [“High Surveillance 2”] section of the Rossano Calabro prison to the Pavia prison. The interview with the lawyer showed that he is in the protected section, where there are collaborators of justice, former law enforcement officers, sex offenders and trans and homosexual prisoners (who have explicitly requested to be among the protected). Beppe had requested to be transferred from the Rossano AS2, where the vast majority of prisoners are Islamic, due to incompatibility and had also requested an approach to his home, thus indicating the AS2 sections of the north-center of Italy where there are currently anarchist comrades. The provocative response to his request was the transfer to the protected section of the Pavia prison. Let’s not leave him alone!

In the early hours of September 3, 2019, all of the prisoners on a small mink farm in Hölkemåla, Blekinge, Sweden, escaped from the cages. In total about 1500 persons managed to get free.
We gave a helping hand by disassembling the fence of the farm and then opening all the cage doors. We removed parts of the fence using a wrench to ensure a way out. The fur farm was situated right next to a lake where we hope that as many as possible now get to live.
In a world where freedom exists only in moments of rebellion and insurrection, we still think that the possibility of a life in the forest and lake is quite the opposite of that in a cage. We do recognize that the already destroyed eco-systems and colonised nature is nothing like a dream, but since it is all that we have it is where we will go from our imprisoned existences. A passion for freedom is what drove us to this hidden killing facility to increase the freedom for all of us. Our desire to share this moment of freedom with the minks is rooted in solidarity and love as well as anger and hatred towards those who dominate us and try to steal our lives.
We strongly believe that there is no limit to the things we can do, all we need is to make up our minds and pick a target.
We send our love to Eric King, Matthias in Switzerland and all other prisoners around the world!
