Migrant Solidarity Organizing in the Modern Landscape

In this report, comrades based on the Syrian border in Turkey describe how they assisted Syrian refugees in escaping to central Europe and tease out the lessons for people engaged in similar work in the United States. Although Syrians themselves led the majority of initiatives to respond to the crisis, people of all backgrounds can play important roles in forming networks of support for the targeted and excluded. As ICE raids intensify around the US, it is time to set up our own emergency response networks and underground railroads.

Paris: Reportback on Saturday’s riot, for Théo and against the police (+commentary)

Politicians on the mic calling for calm and pacifiers making part of the crowd sing the national anthem (while the rest jeered), which then took up the slogan, “we are all French”… This was also part of the solidarity demonstration in Bobigny in front of the court. The same “big brothers”, like the trendy rapper Fianso (Sofiane) and his pals, called for people to go home instead of confronting the cops, “so that the little ones sleep at home tonight near their mothers,” and “to not tarnish the image of blacks and arabs”. As well, this shameful slogan, “prison for rapists”, was chanted by the crowd, along with many others (Cops, rapists, murderers; everyone hates the police; Justice for Théo). All this fit nicely with Théo’s statements on February 7 from his hospital bed, aimed at “my city”, in the face of a mob of journa-cops and just before squeezing the filthy hand of François Hollande: “Boys, stop with the war. Let’s stay united. I have faith in the justice system. And justice will be done. So stop with the war.”

France, Proud Exporter of High-Tech Death

Some analysis of the French Military Industrial Complex, why it's important to resist war, and some possible points of intervention

As the carnage in Syria continues, deaths are now counted by the hundreds of thousands. The large popular uprising that began in 2011 to overthrow the Assad dictatorship has been drowned in blood for five years under the passive, stunned gaze of the entire world. A real slaughter, with whole villages razed to the ground and a war of extermination waged against a population already decimated by hunger and privation. The insurrection was skillfully transformed into a civil war by the various international factions of power who are fighting over the resources, reconstruction contracts, and domination of the populations. Blood is spilling in the Middle East and Africa. The state, commanders, and bosses, whether they be dressed in suits, uniforms, or religious clothes, are dividing the booty at the expense of millions of peoples lives. And Europe as well is beginning to smell blood and gun powder, to once again get used terror and to khaki uniforms in the streets. Racism and nationalism are spreading, with millions of refugees are turned back at the borders, tens of thousands drown in the Mediteranean, die in trucks, or are expelled or locked up. War invades our lives ever further and constrains our present and our future.

From Vice
The famed career of political hacker Phineas Fisher might have come to an end.

Update, 4PM: Hours after the news of the arrests and raids were reported, Phineas Fisher, using the same email address they had been using for the past few months, sent an email claiming they were still at large.

"I think the Mossos just arrested some people that retweeted the link to their personal info, or maybe just arrested some activisty/anarchisty people to pretend they are doing something," Phineas Fisher, or someone who is in control of their email address said, in an email shared by a source who asked to remain anonymous.

Galicia: New operation against Gabriel Pombo da Silva and Elisa Di Bernardo (Spain)

Careful who you call comrade!

Tuesday, 24 January, on the outskirts of Vigo (Mos), a deployment of about 60 armed men between the Guardia Civil and secret agents, searched (and almost destroyed) the house where Gabriel Pombo da Silva had lived for a few months with his partner Elisa Bernardo. At dawn the two were violently awakened, handcuffed and separated … aim: to find firearms and explosives! The search lasted about eight hours and in spite of the means employed (dogs and high technology radar tools), gave no results … among the things seized there is the usual “interesting” anarchist material, cameras, maps of various cities, some cable and old malfunctioning cell phones.

Spit in the face of repression
an evening in solidarity with those accused of bank robberies in
Aachen/Germany

Faced with an apparatus of repression that is developing ever more
suffocating forms within a context of on-going technocratic and
scientific mania, it is easy to fall into a state of inertia.

"No DAPL Means NO Surrender"

"In response to the violent resource colonialism perpetuated by DAPL
employees, Morton County Sheriff's Dept., and the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, there are many warrior societies (Akicitas) forming in all
camps surrounding the struggle against the construction of the Dakota
Access oil pipeline on stolen indigenous land.

A letter to American comrades from French cousins

"Today, very few people still know what state or politics (or "history") is." – Letter from Alexander Kojève to Carl Schmitt (June 28, 1955)

So, the Joker took the White House. And this was not foreseen in the scenario. He did not need a truck full of explosives or a countdown running on a liquid crystal clock. He simply went to the elections, the most democratic in the world, and he won them.

Turkey: Meydan anarchists — ‘we are being cornered’

From Freedom: Anarchist Media, Publishing and Bookshop (UK)

Late last month the editor of Meydan anarchist newspaper in Istanbul was sentenced to a year and three months in prison for “supporting terror,” the latest in a string of attempts by the Turkish State to shut down dissenting voices against Erdogan’s government. Today we are proud to publish a translation of Meydan’s uncompromising response, from their latest edition.
