Lawyers for Viktor Filinkov and Yuly Boyarshinov, two of the defendants in the “network case”, are now preparing for their trial. The defendants in the case are Russian anti-fascists who were arrested – and tortured by security services officers – in St Petersburg and Penza last year. They are accused of a so-called terrorist plot – a prosecution denounced by Russian human rights organisations as a frame-up.

From It's Going Down

March 15, 2019 marks one of the most horrifically visible manifestation of far-Right hatred that most can think of in the last couple of decades. A “lone wolf,” whose actions were incubated in hate filled internet forums like 8chan, posted a Facebook link to a live stream of him murdering 50 people and wounding an additional 50. The victims were from two different mosques, several miles away from each other in Christchurch, New Zealand, between the ages of 2 and 71.

Some words on the riots of 29th of March

From Traces of Fire

Jasmins and almond trees bloom from the bullet wounds and scars in the bodies of our fallen ones. The coming seeds of self-redress perch on the branches, ready to nourish those greedy-for-life. Drawn in blood; bitterness flows out, becomes fertilizer for the rage. The pine needles fall down embracing the honour of living as negator of servitude. Waves break, embracing the honour of dying fighting. Waters respond to the call of silence, they turn into fire, and a night like the 29th of March make a salutary spill-over. It’s exactly there that our dead friends accompany each of our step. It’s there that Sebastian Oversluij, Lambros Fountas, Mauricio Morales, Spiros Dravilas, Anna Campbell, Dimitris Armakolas, Javier Recabarren, all our comrades that left away, are bursting out of fire caressing eternity.

Responsibility Claim
CONCERNING THE RECENT PROSECUTIONS IN ITALY
At the beginning of February the eviction of the squat ASILO OCCUPATO was ordered, a structure of the movement in the city of Turin, with a history of 24 years. The police don’t ‘play’ alone and the evacuation lasts one and a half days because of the resistance from the interior of the squat. Simultaneously all over the city gatherings, meetings, violent protests are being carried out. The carabinieri, in order to silence the reactions, transform entire neighbourhoods into quarantine zones, with blockades, arrests and the prohibition of circulation of traffic. Finally the authorities, as well as the eviction, arrest 6 comrades on charges of subversive activity based on actions against the CIE/CRP [detention centres for immigrants] as well as for solidarity with the revolts that have broken out inside them.

What’s The Use Of Direct Action?

From Conflict Minnesota

The phrase “direct action” is fairly ubiquitous amongst the radical left, anarchist or other anti-authoritarian milieus. To summarize for those who might not be familiar, direct action refers to acts that directly accomplish their goals. It is often used to illustrate the contrast with electoral organizing and other tactics most often associated with liberal tendencies. According to the phrase’s wikipedia page, the origins of the phrase itself can be traced back to the early 20th century anarchist movement in the United States, and later taken up by civil rights groups and environmental activists, among others. Since its inception, “direct action” has been used to describe an ever-expanding multitude of activities.

Call for June 11th, 2019

From June 11th

June 11th: the international day of solidarity with Marius Mason and long-term anarchist prisoners. In the 15 years this tradition has been observed, June 11th has facilitated support and action inspired by imprisoned anarchists — from noise demonstrations outside of jails to letter-writing nights, from fundraisers to arson. Setting aside this day is one way of remembering anarchists who are serving long prison sentences, generating support for them, and inspiring solidarity actions.
