Historical information about anarchist black cross is pretty limited. However, according to Rudolph Rocker (cashier of the London anarchist black cross), anarchist black cross (also known as anarchist red cross (arc) was founded between 1900 and 1905. It is possible that these dates are not very precise. According to Harry Weinstein, one of the two founders of the organization, it started after his arrest during July or August 1906. As soon as he was released, Weinstein, together with others, offered clothes to anarchists that had been sentenced to exile in Siberia.

“We were in an Assembly at the Polytechnic discussing solidarity with political prisoners, and many were interested in helping with money and support. No one had any money so we squatted Vox and made it into a café to make money.”
We take responsibility for the participation in the conflicts of November 17th, 2016 in Athens at the Polytechnic. We are delighted for their scope, and for the 6 cops in the hospital. We are pleased that we were actively part of an anarchist insurrectionary act which showed a sufficient force for the measures and the possibilities it offers.

The visit of the outgoing US President Barack Obama to Greece is anything but ceremonial. Apart from the strong symbolic weight of the visit of an American president on the eve of the Athens Polytechnic uprising anniversary (and, what is more, under a self-proclaimed “left-wing” government), the content of Obama’s visit could be actually summed up in the phrase “business as usual”; a type of business, however, that, as we all know, is always stained with the blood of peoples.
The drastic rise in the number of anarchist squats in abandoned homes in the Exarchia district of Athens is fueling concern among local residents who say police appear unwilling or unable to intervene.
“[Police] told us that they have been informed about the issue and that they are giving time to owners to state, in written form, whether they are for or against the squat, before they intervene,” one local told Kathimerini Thursday.

A few words concerning the responsibility claim for the execution of Habibi.
Because much has already been said and even more will be said, one more text full of praises or aphorisms would have nothing to add and offer.
This is why, because of the recent incidents, here will be written only what is deemed necessary about the before, the now and the after of a situation that does not only concern the square and the people there but also all of us. Publicly and openly, without exposing or slandering individuals and projects. And certainly not with great ease or arrogance as is customary.
