The anarchist comrade Riccardo, arrested and imprisoned since 7 July 2017 for the days of riots against G20 in Hamburg, was released today (5 October), following the court decision that sentenced him to 1 year and 9 months, but with the benefit of suspended sentence.
Solidarity with the rebells of G20!
Freedom for all!
In an interview, Kate Evans, the author and artist of Red Rosa, admitted that when she was initially approached about it, she did not know who Rosa Luxemburg was. Evans did, however, do meticulous research that informed how her pictures were drawn, and she also used Luxemburg’s own political writings to convey her inner and political life. The book is lively and characterful, its main goal attempting to draw Luxemburg as a whole person. By this, we mean that Evans includes a lot about Luxemburg’s friendships, and her romantic and sexual life, as well as trying to convey her political ideas.
Taking responsibility for Kerameikos metro station
The city’s transport system is being restructured. Already all Metro and ISAP stations have had entrance and exit bars installed, new machines have been fitted on buses, ticket offices of the notorious e-ticket have been opened in stations and at various points in Athens.
In an environment of the State and the bosses’ total assault, to their attack on the world of work with wage cuts, dissolution of social security and funding cuts in social services, has been added the restructuring of the mass transit system. OASA claims it cannot cover expenses – at the same time executives are plundering its funds and giving millions of euros for the implementation of these measures (many thousands of euros will be given just for the advertising campaign of this restructuring to convince of its necessity).

Report of the conference of Contagio Antispecista at the festival Festa Antispecista (Milan – Italy, September 16, 2017)
The text that follows is the content of the speech given by Contagio Antispecista on the 16th of September in the context of the debate Michela Vittoria Brambilla and the commodification of veganism, which took place during the gathering Festa Antispecista at the independent center for art, culture and research Macao, in Milan.
On the 1st of January 2017, following the explosion of a home-made bomb in front of the fascist bookshop in which a policeman from the bomb disposal unit lost a hand and an eye, several homes of comrades were searched. The police were hoping to find firearms and/or explosives. The searches didn’t lead to nothing except for the seizure of pamphlets, computers, clothing and other everyday objects. An investigation against persons unknown was launched with the intention to charge them with the offences “manufacturing, possession, and transportation of an explosive or incendiary device to a public place” and “attempted murder”.
Mourning a Queer Activist and Anarchist Murdered by the Police
On September 16, anarchist, anti-fascist, engineering student, and queer activist Scout Schultz was shot and killed by police on Georgia Tech campus in Midtown Atlanta. This loss has shaken Scout’s friends and family and terrorized many others, including activists, queer youth, and those with mental health concerns across campus and the city at large. Two weeks after Scout’s murder, Scout’s lover and close friend Dallas Punja took their own life. (Both Scout and Dallas used they/them pronouns.) Dallas described being traumatized by police sirens and police lights after Scout’s killing. These two tragic deaths drive home what is at stake in the conflict that pits anarchists and queer youth against police and the repressive society they uphold: it is a question of survival itself.
