Interview: Anarchists in the Turkish Uprising

Tuesday, 9 July, 2013

Proteste in Istanbulübernommen von lesci.blogsport.eu

In der autonomen Revolte, ohne Anführer, ist es Aufgabe der organisierten Individuen, die Verbreitung von Erfahrung und Taktiken voranzubringen. Es ist wichtig, dass diese Individuen bereits Erfahrung im Straßenkampf haben. Barrikadenbau, ErsteHilfe, Kochen usw. in selbstorganisierter Form entsteht nicht aus dem Nichts. Informationen müssen strukturiert und Anleitung effektiv verbreitet werden. Soziale Medien sind sowohl zur Diskussion der nächsten Schritte, als auch zum Aufbau von Solidarität, und dem Verbreiten von Taktiken geeignete Mittel. Read the rest of this entry »

Thodoros Iliopoulos: An interview

Monday, 17 August, 2009

Greece ProtestsThe interview that follows was conducted by Ntina Daskalopoulou and published in an Athens daily this morning. It is translated and posted here as is: with no comments, additions or explanations – none is needed. After 36 days on hunger strike, Thodoros’ words are crystal clear. In his face, the State has found an enemy to unleash all its revanchist rage, some rage in reality directed against an ever-growing current of disobedience, resistance and solidarity. As long as there are people like Thodoros standing up to the wrath of the State, the next December will always be close. In the struggle against their order, Thodoros is not alone.

 

“I took a stance for December
and I am now faced with the State’s reprisal”

- Thodoros Iliopoulos

Eight months in pre-trial detention for December’s events, the last one also on hunger strike. His anticipated release in July never came, the theatre of the absurd of the charges against him continued and Thodoris remains incarcerated. But a fighter. This time, his “weapon” is his own body. He spoke to us over the phone from the prison of Korydallos. From there he sees the revanchist face of the State, that Greece of violence and repression but also another Greece of the restless youth, of the faith in ideals. Insisting on his innocence and his own beliefs. Paying dearly for both.

Active solidarity with Amadeu Casellas, on hunger strike since April 20

Thursday, 30 April, 2009

Amadeu Casellas has been locked up in Catalunya for over 22 years, and in that time he has been active in the struggles of prisoners of the Spanish State. He is currently being held for longer than the law permits, and last year carried out a 76 day hunger strike that ended with the prison authorities promising to begin his release process.

Five days after beginning his hunger strike, Amadeu Casellas finds himself in a delicate situation, his health is deteriorating faster than he had anticipated, and in just five days he has lost 7 kilos of bodymass.

Communiqué by Amadeu Casellas Ramon from 24.04.09

Monday, 27 April, 2009

We have two classes of justice, that of the rich and that of the workers

As the majority now will know, since the 20th [of April] I am again on hunger strike for the farce they have maintained during these last 7 months, the jailers, or better said, the hit-men of the Spanish and Catalan state which keeps me sequestered breaching their own laws.

We all know that we have two classes of justice, that of the rich and that of the workers. For the rich their fascist constitution and more concretely, articles 10-14-15-24 & 25. They speak of dignity and of inviolable rights, the norms relative to the fundamental rights and to the liberties which the constitution recognizes in conformity with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the international treaties and accords about the same materials ratified by Spain.

Situation of Amadeu Casellas and Hunger Strike beginning April 20th 2009

Sunday, 26 April, 2009

After more than 7 months since leaving the last hunger strike that lasted 77 days, I make this refection and evaluation.

Salud Comrades!

The strategies that are maintained by motives of politics and force, from the Dirección General, with personalities like Jordi Torres, who was one of those responsible for what started the last hunger strike, because he was the subdirector of treatment of the Quatre Camins jail and for this, had to have known that the treatment team of the MR-3 was sending false notices, as much to JVP nº 1, as to the very Audiencia Provincial of Barcelona, now results that is found in the DGSP, I suppose like a prize for the services lended in Quatre Camins, for what I understand I have a direct enemy in the very Dirección General, for that which is evident is that it is one of those that is against my release from jail.

At 1st of April the trail against Giorgos Voutsis-Vogiatzis will start in Athens

Sunday, 29 March, 2009

“With violence as a structural part, the system organizes the ignorance and fortifies itself from its deniers. Violence is everywhere. It is in the *peitharxika, in the penalties and in the isolation cells. In the city plan and in the war. In the news and in the commercials. In the murderous police and in the environmental looting. In the video games and in the juvenile correction institutions.

How much, mister president, does your democracy says that the life of a robber costs, and much the life of a police man? How much does the life of a prisoner cost in your modern Greek democracy and how much the life of a prison manage? How much does the life of a reputable judge cost and how much the life of the poor devil immigrant? Obviously the value of a human life gets a different meaning when the dead is a defender of the ruling class. But the bullets cost the same.“

Gabriel Pombo da Silva: Rome and the Individual

Thursday, 20 November, 2008

This text by anarchist prisoner Gabriel Pombo da Silva is about his interrogation by Italian police who came to Germany to demand information about the FAI (Informal Anarchist Federation), an subversive anarchist network who have been responsible for attacks against various targets within Italy. Gabriel is accused of being a “leader” of some kind, this move against Gabriel betrays the kind of ignorance which is endemic within police forces around the globe. Anarchists neither want nor need leaders of any kind – For the spreading of the struggle appropriate to the means available!

Dear comrades,
