Istanbul, Turkey: Anarchist Women Demonstrate Outside Bakırköy Women’s Prison

22.11.19: The organization Anarşist Kadınlar / Anarchist Women carried out an action outside the Bakırköy Closed Women’s Prison. They stated that all institutions that protect masculinity should be closed down and that prisons should be shut down, not women.

The anarchist women chanted slogans in front of the prison and released black and purple balloons over the prison wall to announce their presence and to show support to the women held hostage by the patriarchal state on the other side of the wall.

The anarchist women stated that even in prison, the most concrete of places where the male-dominated system holds women captive, women cannot be silenced. The action ended after a statement was read out.

Berlin : Prison profiteer KONE attacked

On the 17th of November, a car of prison profiteer KONE was set on fire.
Combative solidarity with those persecuted and arrested by the Greek state!
Flaming greetings to Thunfisch (https://freethunfisch.blackblogs.org/), who was arrested on 10th November in Berlin!
Fire to the prisons, freedom for all prisoners!

The principle of punishment of bourgeois society is one that never forgets. All possible means are at the disposal of the state persecution. The press, which willingly serves as the mouthpiece of the pigs to publish accusations, photos and calls for denunciation, thereby reaching a broad public. The drooling after a good story, which should increase the sales figures of the smear sheet, not important on whose back this is carried out.

Thousands of lackeys who, by putting on their uniforms, roam the function of defending an inhuman system and are prepared to enter houses, to arrest people, to torture, to injure, to rape, to murder. Companies whose basic idea of existence is nothing other than the increase of profit, which therefore have no conscience to appeal to, and which invest in the construction of prisons, walls, in research for more sophisticated methods of oppression. The revolutionary attack on murderous conditions and the logic of property and profit through exploitation and oppression is not only direct action, but anchoring it in social struggles. Although there is nothing to be said against the pure act which gives a concrete answer to the respective atrocity of the existing, the revolution may only develop in the lifting of the isolation of individual militants* or cells and their connection with the people, the oppressed.

Those who, under the name “Organization for Revolutionary Self-Defense”, have committed attacks on Greek MAT units (January and November 2017, May 2014), the Mexican Embassy (July 2016) and the French Embassy (November 2016), have written in their texts about this very connection in which the armed struggle is an expression of the social movement. On 9th November, the Greek state arrested three people, one of whom was released a few days later, arrested and tried to interrogate them for hours, forcing a person to flee injured, on the grounds that they had identified them (as menbers of the Organization).

Since the change of government from Syriza to Nea Demokratia, the state has taken off its democratic and moderating mask and has set itself the goal of silencing the anarchist movement and fighting all forms of self-organization of the oppressed and excluded, in addition to the usual racist activity. It is not surprising that the new government in November is striving for the smashing of armed fighting groups. The last two months of the year are historically marked by anti-authoritarian and anarchist resistance, by resistance against the junta and the broad uprising of the Polytechneio in 1973, as well as by the revolt in December 2008 after the shooting of Alexis by a cop.

Wherever our eyes turn, even worldwide, we see protests and unrest flare up in various places. Revolts that unleash themselves and drag thousands of people onto the streets, ready to attack the symbols of humiliation. Social movements that negate every form of negotiation and representation. And from here, from Berlin, our mouths remain open to the readiness to respond to the violence of the system with violence and the rebellious moments, the breathing of solidarity and freedom and anger that seem to make stopping impossible. There is still a lot to do, in times when fascism, anti-feminism and authoritarian thinking are rampant, when countless people die in police cells like Oury Jalloh, when every last bit of something is exploited. And if this action means to set even a small sign of solidarity with the prisoners and injured of the revolts and struggles worldwide, then we do this because we do not want to stand by and do nothing. Every notch that the state tries to strike into the ranks of those who dare to question its omnipotence will reinforce us all the more that the destruction of violent relations is the only right thing to do.  And since it is not only the rulers who maintain them, but companies, the press, cops – they are legitimate targets.

That is why we set fire to a KONE van in Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg during the night from 17 to 18 November. KONE is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of elevators, escalators and door systems. They do not stop before a participation in the construction of prisons (https://attaque.noblogs.org/post/2017/03/19/luynes-aix-en-provence-bouches-du-rhone-liste-des-entreprises-qui-participent-a-la-construction-de-la-prison/).

Combative solidarity with those persecuted and arrested by the Greek state!
Flaming greetings to Thunfisch, who was arrested on 10th November in Berlin!
Fire to the jails, freedom for all prisoners!

Montreal, Quebec: Incendiary Attack Against Migrant Prison Construction Company

Anonymous submission to MTL Counter-info

By accepting to be the general contractor for the new Laval migrant detention center, Tisseur Inc. made a grave mistake. On the night of October 26th we decided to make our contribution to the struggle against the system of borders and prisons in all its forms. We set fire to a truck on the banks of the Lachine Canal, on the site of another Tisseur project. We’re not done.

Freiburg, Germany: Burn All Prisons and Those Who Build Them

During the night of Thursday, 24.10.2019, an Implenia Group company car was torched on the Tullastraße in Freiburg im Breisgau. Implenia is one of the largest construction companies in Switzerland and is internationally active. In Switzerland, the company is famous for the construction of the Bässlergut deportation prison. The Bässlergut is a prison with a penal system and deportation detention directly on the border with Germany. As part of the new legislation, part of it has now been converted into a so-called federal camp. These are further steps in the authoritarian management of refugees in Switzerland, in which the mass processing of people takes place in a centralized manner. Registration, administration and deportation is the motto.

Implenia is currently building an extension of the prison and is thus making a direct contribution to the expansion of the federal prison system. Over the past two years, Implenia has therefore repeatedly been the target of actions directed against a world of walls and borders. Unfortunately, these actions remain isolated in Switzerland and individual cities such as Berlin. We would like to spread this fight, draw attention to it and motivate more groups to focus on the prison profiteers.

The Squatting Days are currently taking place here in Freiburg. Houses are occupied and the profiteers of vacancy and gentrification are shown that they can no longer continue their inhuman work undisturbed. Whether it is repression through revaluation and eviction or through justice and imprisonment, the logic behind it is always the same.

Fiery greetings to the Anti-Prison Days in Berlin and Warsaw and to everyone behind the walls!

Prison of Nancy-Maxeville, France: Nuclear state = Police state

IT/EN/FR

[Claim appeared on Monday, September 30, on the website nantes.indymedia.org].

On Friday, September 27th [2019], the Nancy-Maxeville prison was attacked to denounce the repression of the nuclear State.

In the pre-evening of the demo against the nuclear waste-dump – project CIGEO « Vent de Bure » at Nancy – we attacked (symbolically) the prison of Nancy-Maxeville, to send greetings to our comrades who are imprisoned and those who are charged by repression. Also to set a sign for a society without prisons in general.

We marked the walls with the paint, smash the windows of some administration buildings, launch smoke bombs and flares in the yard of the prison and greet the prisoners with pyrotechnics in the surrounding area. The action was protected by crowsfeets [metal devices to puncture car tyres] and burning barricades on the access roads.

The atomic state always implies the police state as well. The « technology of power » is generally linked to the centralization of power and has a need for a repressive system to protect it.

The answer of the state against the growing resistance in Bure is massive : people get controlled and observed, locked under interdiction of territory and even contact, getting arrested and imprisoned.

While thousands of people went to the streets on Saturday, to demonstrate against the planed waste-dump, we want to remind that some people already pay a high price for this struggle.

LOVE & RAGE to the prisoners
Fire to all prisons !
STOP CIGEO

Autonomous group

P. S.: With our action we also send smoke signs of solidarity to Hamburg/Germany where our comrades Loïc and the “three of the park bench” are kept in prisons.

Athens, Greece: Solidarity Demonstration for anarchist prisoner Giannis Dimitrakis

Domokos Prisons, Sunday, October 6th at 3:30 pm
GATHERING in Athens, POLITEXNEIO  University, 11:00
On 12/6, the anarchists G. Dimitrakis and K. Sakkas are arrested along with the anarchist D. Syrianou (who was later released on restrictive terms) for the expropriation of money at AHEPA.
The two comrades are initially detained in Komotini and Nigrita Serres prisons respectively.
G.Dimitrakis is taken to the disciplinary offices of Komotini Prisons in revenge, in inhumane conditions, where he is held in cells of few sq.m. without windows, 6 people are stacked in two bunk beds, resulting in many inmates sleeping on the floor while deprived of the right to a courtyard. After two months, the comrade is transferred to Domokos Prisons.
This choice of our comrades is part of the diversity of the struggle and the path that shapes the movement in the raging social war. Along this route, there is always the risk of arrest, detention and prosecution.
That is why the world of struggle and solidarity is called upon to stand by those who are in prison as a result of their choices.
NO COMRADE ALONE IN THE HANDS OF THE STATE
DETERMINATION TO ANARCHISTS G. DIMITRAKIS & K. SAKKAS
SOLIDARITY TO THE COMRADE DIMITRA  SYRIANOU

Hamburg, Germany: SPIE Vehicle Torched in Solidarity with the Park Bench 3 & Rebellious Neighborhoods

 

via Anarchists Worldwide

Undoubtedly, the spaces in which we can move freely sometimes become narrower:
In Hamburg, where the special commissions announce in the media the alleged success of their surveillance teams, their video analyses, DNA sniffing and informer hotlines – everything to re-establish the illusion of their security that they lost in the Summer of 2017.

In Berlin, where every space is supposedly a terror nest, where people take their lives into their own hands instead of entrusting it to investors and real estate companies. Where the media present their puppet Interior Senator who hides his civil war army more democratically than his predecessor.

In Athens, where a fascist government finally wants to implement the purges that its EU and NATO partners have waited so long for. So that the city will become another paradise for investors and tourists. Like some districts in Hamburg, like some districts in Berlin and like every place where the modern form of capitalism eats through districts that are not yet as boring as the exclusive residences as the elites.

To secure its rule, the state relies on corporations to do their dirty work. But the fiery serpent of the anarchist revolt eats its way through these controversial territories on the trail of these companies, destroying whatever it finds.

On the night of September 4th, 2019, we destroyed with fire a vehicle belonging to the infamous prison profiteers SPIE in Hamburg-Wandsbeck.

This small gesture of solidarity goes to the Park Bench 3, to the people who defend Exarcheia against the attacks by the cops and to all who want to make the expected evictions in Berlin a disaster for the government there.
