Manila.

A blue, mini gas tank with a cooking dock sits on the corner of Taks Barbin’s living room. He turns the knob, put a water-filled kettle on top of the dock, and opens foldable plastic chairs, forming a circle. This living room is a modest extension of his bedroom; a space that makes up a part of the interconnected shanties that snake around one of UP Diliman’s side streets.

From It's Going Down

Starting November, 2017, Russian FSB (the successor to the KGB) initiated a violent crackdown on anti-fascist and anarchist activists. Starting in Penza, the repression has spread to St. Petersburg, Moscow, and most recently Crimea. Activists are accused of participation in non-existent “terrorist cells” for activities as innocuous as hiking in the woods and practicing woodland survival skills and playing with airlsoft guns, plastic toys purchasable from any toy store.

Once again, everything has ended in nothing. Almost three years after the arrests of fifteen people under Operación Piñata (March 2015), the courts have stopped the legal process, after a request by defense lawyers to dismiss the investigation for lack of evidence against the accused.

In early January, a crowd of around 15 despicable types braved the cold outside a pig shop in support of our comrade while she underwent questioning. With slogans, banners and songs, we announced our disgust for TERFs, cops, and all the other custodians of the gendered prison against which we plot our lives of fugitivity and destruction. Just as our comrade gave no comment, we reaffirmed that we have nothing to say to the state either in pursuit of ‘justice’, or of ‘gender recognition’ from their bureaucratic machinery.

Between the 16 and 17 of June, the Anarchist bookfair will take place in Malmö, Sweden.

The first aim is presentation of books and publications inside the anarchist spectrum, also holding talks, discussions and workshops.

We see the need of learning from different experiences, sharing ideas and ongoing struggles. Spreading those theories and practices nourishes our movement locally and globally and makes our community stronger. This is why we want to invite people from different areas to come here and participate in this event.

From Insurrection News (via Act For Freedom Now!)

As events as such write the modern world history, all revolutionary movements need to process the information available, discuss and come to conclusions and eventually choose sides and fight without failing to take the context of this historical reality into account.

The text on hand does not set out to provide an exhaustive historical narrative. Yet, it does set out to open a discussion that will look into all the critical issues raised. Also, our aim is to turn our ideas into action, thus we choose to go against the widespread inertia that surrounds the subject matter.

Text about the wave of repression in connection with the resistance against the G20 summit in Hamburg

From contra info
Summary for our internationalist comrades
G20-Repression
Prisoners * Conditions in the prison * Trials * Video- and Photo publications * House raids

The G20 summit and the euphoric days in the streets of the Schanzenviertel were shaped by the massive anger and motivation to attack, which we did not expect since Heiligendamm and Frankfurt.

The wave of repression that followed afterwards, and actually had already started before the summit with the implementation of the new §114ff and preventive policing, reached its climax with the publication of dozens of mug shots, by the special commission „Soko Schwarzer Block“ on December 18th, 2017.

The wave of repression, remained rather unnoticed from comrades in others countries who fought with us on the streets and euphorically followed the riots in the media. They told us, that they did not receive any information on the prisoners, the condemned and the persecution mania by the state.

This video was made one month after the disappearance of Santiago Maldonado in the hands of Gendarmería Argentina.
The lifeless body of Santiago was "found" on October 17 -78 days after his disappearance-in the Chubut River 300 meters upstream from the place where he was seen captured by Gendarmería, and in an area that had been raked in different occasions by those who carried out their search.
