About the New Trial Against Revolutionary Struggle

from anarchists worldwide

The new trial against Revolutionary Struggle [Επαναστατικού Αγώνα, ‘Epanastatikòs Agonas’] will continue at the special court in Korydallso Prison (Athens) on Friday, January 10th, 2020, at 9:00AM. This ongoing legal proceeding against the organization and its members is part of the wider series of trials that continue to involve and be directed against the comrades, in particular Pola Roupa and Nikos Maziotis. The charges in this trial relate to a car bomb abandoned and discovered by the police in the summer of 2017, seven months after Pola Roupa’s arrest on January the 5th of the same year. Nikos Maziotis, however, has been in prison since July 16th, 2014. In this trial the comrades are accused of “supplying, possessing and manufacturing explosives”.

Melbourne Anarchist Communist Group: Eastern Australia on Fire

December 2019. Since then the fires have spread even further and the death toll has risen markedly. ---- For the last six weeks, the eastern States of Australia have been suffering an unprecedented wave of bushfires. There have also been a number of bushfires in Western Australia. One of the driest winters on record has been followed by a warm and dry spring. This has led to huge areas of the continent being tinder dry and ready to catch fire far earlier than for a normal fire season. What we are seeing is unprecedented in its breadth, intensity, and timing.

3rd Communique from the Anti-Authoritarian Action Group on the Ongoing Revolt

from anarchists worldwide

As an anarchist group we continue to be present in the streets, in the chaotic protests and creating initiatives in our villas, barrios and problaciones, spreading our ideas and values in the heat of the revolt. In this way, in these fierce times of struggle against power, the year ended with barricades and demonstrations. Putting aside the celebrations for the coming of a new year, the people lived the festival of fire, the barricades and the confrontations against the police henchmen.

Deceased GOP Strategist's Daughter Makes Files Public

from npr.org by Hansi Lo Wang

More than a year after his death, a cache of computer files saved on the hard drives of Thomas Hofeller, a prominent Republican redistricting strategist, is becoming public.

Republican state lawmakers in North Carolina fought in court to keep copies of these maps, spreadsheets and other documents from entering the public record. But some files have already come to light in recent months through court filings and news reports.

They have been cited as evidence of gerrymandering that got political maps thrown out in North Carolina, and they have raised questions about Hofeller's role in the Trump administration's failed push for a census citizenship question.

Now more of the files are available online through a website called The Hofeller Files, where Hofeller's daughter, Stephanie Hofeller, published a link to her copy of the files on Sunday after first announcing her plans in a tweet last month.

“The Greatest Purveyor of Violence”: Black Rose Statement on U.S. Aggression Against Iran

“The Greatest Purveyor of Violence”: Black Rose Statement on U.S. Aggression Against Iran

From Black Rose Anarchist Federation

Black Rose Anarchist Federation / Federación Anarquista Rosa Negra unequivocally condemns the U.S. assassination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani in Iraq. This is a provocation and an act of imperialist aggression that adds to a long history of U.S.-led military and economic violence in the Middle East, including the recent crippling sanctions which most severely impact poor and working class Iranians. This assasination has every possibility of escalating into a large scale armed conflict — something that would undoubtedly lead to the immiseration of millions in the region.
