I want to apologize for not regularly keeping up with this posting the last few weeks. Given the swelling unrest following the Ferguson verdict and my engagement with it, some smaller projects this one were allowed to fall through the cracks. Here is a compilation of everything that has happened since November 17th; starting next week, this will again become a weekly post.
On the night of the 22nd of December we attacked the Spanish Consulate in Amsterdam. We threw paint bombs and sabotaged their door in solidarity with the people repressed by the fascist Spanish state.
From Z Comm - by David Graeber and Pinar Öğünç
Professor of Anthropology at the London School of Economics, activist, anarchist David Graeber had written an article for the Guardian in October, in the first weeks of the ISIS attacks to Kobane (North Syria), and asked why the world was ignoring the revolutionary Syrian Kurds.
From Act For Freedom Now (http://actforfree.nostate.net/?p=18556)
‘On13/12/2014 a Telecom centre got attacked in Rovereto. Cameras were moved away and incendiary devices were placed in several spots. Telephone companies, besides causing environmental devastation, are on the side of the state in guaranteeing control and security.
In particular Telecom is one of the responsible for the video-conferencing method imposed [during trials] on prisoners in Italy.
From Biehl on Bookchin
“We want the world to know us not because of our weapons but because of our ideas.”
by Janet Biehl, Academic Delegation to Rojava
On December 7 our delegation met with members of a platoon of YPJ, the women’s defense force (Kurdish:Yekîneyên Parastina Jinê), in Amuda, Rojava.
On Tuesday, December 16th, at 5am, hundreds of cops broke into several houses, social centers, and ateneos in Barcelona, and also an apartment in Madrid. It was part of Operation Pandora, an anti-terrorist initiative carried out by the the highest level of the Spanish court system. Several houses were searched and eleven anarchist comrades were arrested. They did not know what charges they were accused of when they were arrested, just given a vague “anarchist terrorism” charge.
Translation of an early report from Barcelona on the developing situation of Spanish comrades arrested on terrorist charges. Originally published in Spanish on alasbarricadas on Dec 16 2014, 9:58 am
