UPDATE: The squat was evicted this afternoon by 12 vans of riot police, a few hours after being announced in the morning. See report on the eviction here. 8 people have been arrested. The Calais authorities clearly intend to enforce their “zero tolerance” clampdown on migrant and other autonomous spaces in the town centre, and with hundreds of CRS now stationed in Calais they have the force to do so.
Massive show of strength as anarchists, antifascists and anti-authoritarians took to the streets of Exarcheia against drug dealing mafias and police. The demonstration was guarded by comrades armed with openly displayed guns (who can be seen on the video from 01:53), something that has not been seen at demonstrations in recent times but was deemed necessary due to the serious threat posed by the heavily armed drug mafias who work in collusion with the police.
On Friday, March 11th, thousands of Chicagoans descended on the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) Pavilion to protest the rally of Donald Trump, including UIC students, different political organizations, affinity groups and autonomous individuals.
Our affinity group was composed of two WOC, four self-identifying sex-workers, and others, the majority of whom identify as queer folx, anarchists, marx/fems, progressive/radicals, all under the common goal of representing an Anti-fascist politic.
To be clear, no one was promoting Bernie Sanders, or any other presidential candidate within our affinity group.

Earlier today (March 5), at 6 pm, a few friends attacked an SPVM cruiser parked outside of Charlevoix metro in the Montreal neighborhood of Pointe-Saint-Charles by slashing the tires and breaking the windows.
We want to use this attack as a call for actions against police in Montreal between now and the end of March.
The Auditorio Che Guevarra is a special place in Mexico City. Seventeen years ago, students organizing a strike to keep university education free took an auditorium as a base from which to organize. The space was evicted and physically destroyed months later by police in an effort to destroy their movement, but re-occupied and rebuilt months later by a coalition of collectives, including theater, dance, and a vegan kitchen.
They have survived countless violent attacks from the state, university administration, rightwing thugs, and even authoritarian Marxist-Leninists. In the most recent eviction, paramilitary forces used batons, gas, and tasers to drive the occupiers from the Auditorium, as reprisal for hosting an international anarchist convergence that featured Alfredo Bonanno, Constantino Cavalleri, Gustavo Rodríguez. and Wolfi Landstreicher as speakers.

Last night, we destroyed the windows of Antidote, Mâle Bouffe, Electric Children (which was also sprayed with paint), and attacked the businesses of the Place Valois. This morning, flyers were thrown in the metro stations Préfontaine, Joliette and Pie-IX and at the Place Valois explaining the attacks of the night before.
During the night of February 25, 2016, some businesses in Hochelaga were attacked. We smashed the windows and threw paint everywhere.
