ALBANY – Another successful Really Really Free Market was organized by a local group of anarchists and radicals at the Albany Social Justice Center. The event—the second this winter—featured a variety of items including cold weather clothing, blankets, sleeping bags, kitchen appliances, toys, books, and even bikes, all available for free to anyone who decided to stop in. In addition to the clothing and home goods there was a radical literature table full of anarchist zines from CrimethInc and an assortment of hot beverages made available by Albany’s Food Not Bombs.

We are enemies of power and domination. We want the end of every form of exploitation. We aim for the absolute destruction of authority and of the capitalist system. The symbols and the consequences of capitalism and exploitation are everywhere. So we just had to take a clear decision, choosing to take the side of those who are oppressed and attacking the system and its accomplices: direct action for self-determination and total liberation! It doesn’t matter how small is the action compared with the giant monsters we are fighting: it’s action and not just promises at election time, it is the proof of the fact that the fight isn’t over.

Schmitten, Switzerland – Incendiary attack on Implenia, involved in the construction of the prison of Bässlergut

The fact we decided to attack Implenia didn’t come by chance. Implenia is one of the most important companies involved in the extension of the prison for foreigners of “Bässlergut” in Basle.

We are no longer to tolerate the fact that companies make profits by locking up and deporting people.

In any case we are very angry. Little matter whether we are 15, 25, 45 or 75-year-old, this doesn’t change the fact we can’t and don’t want to live without doing anything, with this anger inside ourselves.

This week the Qatari royal family is taking a pensioner who walks with a stick to court to stop him protesting outside the Shard. The Shard is owned by this family via funds held in Jersey. They also own Harrods, the Olympic village and half of One Hyde Park. They reportedly own more property in London than our own royal family.

In early 2016 a far-reaching campaign in Athens began with a fairly modest announcement: “Free Transportation for All”. With a few initial actions that grabbed headlines, like an intervention at the OASA office near Alexandras and the destruction of ticket machines at several stations, began the appearance of a campaign that continues today, and has since seen its massification with several large central marches, topical demonstrations and leafletting, persistent and costly sabotage that the police are unable to stop despite their best efforts, and even reaching to igniting resistance among the transport workers themselves.

Class war on broad street: a report back from the 52nd Super Bowl riots in Philly

On February 4th, 2018, the Philadelphia Eagles stomped out the New England patriots in a classic expression of proletarian violence versus the statist symbol of a modern day “patriot.” Such highlights as known trump supporter and nerd Tom Brady getting dunked on will continue to inspire us. With this event in mind, our affinity group coordinated with other anarchists and anti-authoritarians in the weeks leading up to it to make sure that we all agreed to violently attack institutions and pigs using the sports celebration as cover. Fliers were posted all throughout the city calling for a loose “bird bloc” aka wear eagles gear and fuck shit up.

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.

In October 2017 in Penza (Russia) arrests of local anarchists took place. First was Egor Zorin. After that – Arman Saginbaev, Ilia Shakurskiy, Vasili Kuksov, Dmitri Pchelincev, Alexei Chernov. Investigation believes that all of them were part of terrorist organization “5.11” (group of followers of nationalist Vyacheslav Maltsev who were preparing “revolution” on fifth of November). All except Shakurskiy, who is under home arrest, are in pretrial custody.
