From Black Rose/Rosa Negra

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.

The arrests came after one bomb exploded in Buenos Aires and another was thrown at a judge's home. Authorities say security is at "maximum alert" in order to avoid disturbances to the upcoming G20 summit.

High-Tech Repression And "Left Extremist Database" In Europe

From Civic Critic

A process of ongoing high-level cooperation between European governments following the G20 in Hamburg this time last year has led to the creation of a "black bloc task force," as well as what appears to be a Europe-wide digital database of so-called "left wing extremists" based on a dubious and toxic ideological framework, according to a series of articles, activist commentary, and government documents.

Concerning the Recent Raids across Europe

[The ongoing repression linked to last year's G20 summit in Hamburg has not been much discussed outside of Europe. Mobilizations against global bodies like the G20 are international traditions (whether or not we consider them to be wise), beyond the sense of international that exists in Europe where borders are less stark. These summits exist as heightened moments of repression that shift around globally, providing local police forces and their masters with enormously enhanced resources to crush anarchists, non-electoral leftists, and others who persistently oppose them locally. The G20 as a policing operation is carried out by different police forces around the world, but the phenomenon is international in scope and recognizing it is a necessary first step in linking our struggle through solidarity. ]

Text about the wave of repression in connection with the resistance against the G20 summit in Hamburg

Summary for our internationalist comrades
G20-Repression
Prisoners * Conditions in the prison * Trials * Video- and Photo publications * House raids

The G20 summit and the euphoric days in the streets of the Schanzenviertel were shaped by the massive anger and motivation to attack, which we did not expect since Heiligendamm and Frankfurt.

The wave of repression that followed afterwards, and actually had already started before the summit with the implementation of the new §114ff and preventive policing, reached its climax with the publication of dozens of mug shots, by the special commission „Soko Schwarzer Block“ on December 18th, 2017.

The wave of repression, remained rather unnoticed from comrades in others countries who fought with us on the streets and euphorically followed the riots in the media. They told us, that they did not receive any information on the prisoners, the condemned and the persecution mania by the state.
