On December 22, 1992, acting on a tip off, human rights activist Dr. Martín Almada, and Judge José Agustín Fernández uncovered some five tons of yellowed, raw files detailing institutional kidnapping, torture, disappearance and execution across the Southern Cone of the Americas. The document stash was buried in the back room of a police substation in Lambaré, a suburb of Asuncion, Paraguay.

TOTW: Anarchist by Any Other Name

There is a tension between people who don't/would never call themselves anarchist but agree with (some) anarchist principles, and people who own the label. Projects like Crimethinc have perfected (?) the naming of things as anarchist, when some would call those things simple human behavior (like, making and eating meals with friends, etc). Obviously the main point of this sort of practice is to de-mystify anarchy and anarchists, to put the bomb-throwing in a larger, less scary context, or to negate the scary bits altogether.

A radical performance in solidarity with repressed Russian anarchists was organized in Toronto

FSB is the real terrorist

On Saturday Ferbruary 10 at Dundas-Yonge, one of the most frequented squares of Toronto, a solidarity action took place to support Russian anarchists currently accused of “involvement in a “terrorist community” (a criminal offense under Article 205.4 Part 2 of the Russian Federal Criminal Code)”. Because of the upcoming presidential elections, Putin’s dogs from the Federal Security Bureau (FSB, former KGB) have started a “purge”, trying to neutralize all the “undesirable elements”. An international wave of action has been announced from February 5 to 12.

Santiago, Chile: Noise Bombs in Solidarity with Imprisoned Anarchist Comrades Ignacio, Kevin and Joaquín

As we have previously stated: “The streets of Santiago at night are ours when we decide to indulge in the luxury of vandalizing its symbols”. And so we did it again, placing three noise bombs, this time, under cars, inside a Mormon church and a few steps from the home of a drug-dealing bastard. We caused a bit of disorder on the periphery of the streets, without a doubt we will certainly go for more.

Salt Lake City Capitol Hill Spraypainted in Action for Solidarity with Bears Ears

In the early morning of February 10th, 2018 the Salt Lake City Capitol Hill building near the East Side steps was spraypainted. Two messages showing clear from the street read "Solidarity -- --- {A}" and "Solidarity w/ Bears Ears". We were unable to complete the writing of "with", but replaced it with a "w/" instead. We maintain the resistance for protection of the wild. Industrial civilization as it exists is not sustainable. We oppose all authority as anarchists in the Salt Lake City community and demand respect deserved by all of the wild.
