Since the following news did not get a wide distribution outside Greece in the international counter-information networks when it appeared in May 2017, and as the corporate news also attempted to mitigate and ‘play-down’ the impact of this attack, we rely this info to highlight that everything continues and nothing is over.

08.10.17: A few days ago an operation against the peñis (Mapuche brothers) in the ngulumapu (West Wallmapu) was executed by the Chilean State prosecutors with the support of the bourgeois media who with their news cameras are positioned on the side of the powerful. This time, the Power attacked 7 Mapuche comrades who fight against the loss of their culture, for their stolen land and freedom. This operation was named “Operation Hurricane” by the police, in complicity with the media, guided by the bumbling National Intelligence Agency (ANI) and of course financed by the Chilean State.

For now the protests are over, however pressure from the government on those who were participating in the events of last spring didn’t stop.

G20 protest and state repression. Solidarity with Peike and other prisoners!

From Act for Freedom!

The G20 in Hamburg and the protests against it took place around two months ago already, but its aftermath is still in full course. Duringthe G20, political and economic leaders of the world gathered in orderto plan the continuation of their wars, exploitation of people and animals, and the destruction of the environment. To revolt against this is necessary and gives hope. Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets in Hamburg to obstruct these festivities for the elite. The German state, in an attempt to criminalise a few individuals, has now rapidly changed the topic to bottles and fireworks which were thrown (or not) during the riots. Not very convincing as a distraction for the real problems in this world.

From Alternet by Alexander Reid Ross (September 28, 2017)

Witnesses recall smoke bombs, Nazi salutes and chants of "blood and soil."

Together, they raised their arms in a salute of "Sieg hiel." On Sunday, September 24, about 25 men in masks and balaclavas descended on an anarchist book fair in Houston. The group call itself Patriot Front and is loosely affiliated with Vanguard Front, a fascist organization that includes Heather Heyer's murderer, James Alex Fields, as one of its members. They rushed the door of a multicultural community center, igniting a pair of smoke bombs. Witnesses say the assault was led by construction worker and area neo-Nazi, William Fears.
