Information About the Recent Repressive Blow of the Argentine State
On November 14th, two specific events took place in the city of Buenos Aires, with media coverage and a rapid police / judicial response.
During the afternoon, in the Recoleta cemetry, at the mausoleum dedicated to Colonel Ramon Falcon (assassinated by comrade Simón Radowitzky) – a bomb explodes leaving the comrade Anahi Salcedo wounded, she is transferred to Fernandez hospital and detained with wounds to her face and skull as well as the loss of three fingers on one of her hands. She is currently in an induced coma. At the same place, comrade Hugo Rodriguez was arrested.
As feminists, it is important for us to draw attention to the fact that police officers often use their undue authority to coerce and rape women on the job. And that police officers go home and extend their undue authority to their households where nearly 40% of them abuse their domestic partners with impunity.
Every assault, rape, or murder of a person by the police is an attack against us all.
From It's Going Down by Edelweiss Pirates
Announcing the release of a new green anarchist pamphlet from Edelweiss Pirates (authors of Of Indiscriminate Attacks and Wild Reactions). The PDF for pamphlet printing may be found here and for onscreen reading here. The text dates from 5 years ago and represents one pass at a subject that could sustain ten or a hundred passes. Nonetheless, this hopefully sets the stage for writings to come.
Riot police attacks protesters for no reason
Athens: On 17 November 2018, following the annual protest in commemoration of the student revolt against the military dictatorship in Athens, Greece, (1973), and despite the fact that this year’s protest was ending in an absolutely peaceful manner, scores of riot policemen encircled the black block just before it was going to disperse and for no apparent reason, no provocation, no excuse, no justification, they suddenly launched a massive attack and charged against the crowd with batons while firing asphyxiating gas grenades and flash-bang grenades, creating chaos in a residential area of central Athens, just outside Ambelokipoi metro station.

We republish this statement signed by anarchist and social movement organizations around the world denouncing the current wave of repression aimed at left, anarchist and social movement organizations in Argentina. In the lead up to hosting a meeting of the G20 summit in Buenos Aires on November 30, two bombing incidents conducted by unknown groups have become a pretext for wide ranging police repression including police raids on social centers and the homes of movement activists. As social movements prepare to protest the summit and it’s neoliberal agenda, the security forces have worked to create an atmosphere of fear, urging Buenos Aires 3 million residents to leave the city during the summit and announcing plans to deploy 20,000 officers.
