Police raids in #Athens and #Berlin: And again they create a criminal organization

Berlin. Athens. September 16. 2020. The searches today, which included our anarchist library, are nothing new. But this time the authorities are stepping up their efforts. Five people are affected, who are accused of having founded a special, conspiratorial and criminal association or of being members of it. For this reason, the Federal Prosecutor’s Office is investigating under paragraph 129 and the BKA visited the people concerned at home, sometimes with pulled guns.

Text from Thomas Meyer-Falk for Week of Solidarity

From International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners, 23 – 30 August

Prisons are places of darkness, of gloom, real life cannot flourish there. Because what is “real life”? It is one in freedom, integrated in friendly relationships, experiencing oneself as an individual. Because we live ourselves and are not lived.

Doris Ensinger (1944–2020)

A short biography of German anarchist Doris Ensinger.

“I am not one of those heroic women who have tenaciously committed themselves to the fight against tyranny and in favour of a more just and more humane society and who have risked their lives in this struggle; nor am I one of those women who entered history for her life and work. However, the example of so many brave women inspired me to contribute something, in my modest way, in the struggle for a better world”.

Sabotage of an Amazon Construction Site

From Anarchists Worldwide

We think it is wrong to reform or make these companies “socially acceptable”, because their power is too great and their ideas and images of humanity are diametrically opposed to our concept of freedom. We consider the desire to illuminate and control every human thought, every social relationship and even the smallest step in work processes to be dangerous. If these smallest particles are then to be controlled and adapted to a given exterior, violent domination is in its purest form! Nevertheless, we are of course aware that we too and our everyday life are structured and in many cases thoroughly digitalised by technologies.

HANDS OFF THE SQUATS

From Act for Freedom Now!

Berlin, Thessaloniki : HANDS OFF THE SQUATS-Solidarity with Terra Incognita

Wherever in the world, an attack on our structures will not remain silent. Squats for us are the biggest parts of our struggle against gentrification, tourism, which serves the profit of capitalism and the “clearing” of our neighborhoods. Places which are against the blackmail of the bosses and the repression of the cops, the implementation of self-organization, places of liberation from the tyranny of the state, capital and patriarchy. An important tool for the anarchist movement in order to get collectively organized and fight for a society based on equality, solidarity and freedom.

Solidarity with the Uprising in Belarus

From Anarchists Worldwide

Berlin, Germany: Solidarity with the Uprising in Belarus

In this situation, the anarchist movement is almost the only political force agitating at the base of society, offering a real alternative to (state) capitalism and oppression. Therefore it is involved at the center of the current uprising, as well as supporting those who were hurt or arrested. As internationalists we declare our solidarity with the peoples uprising in Belarus and call for the support of the anarchist forces in Belarus.

Bank Smashed in Response to Raid and Evictions in Berlin

From Act for Freedom Now! via AMW

Solidarity means attack – no eviction remains without response

Today (July 10, 2020), as a first response to the raid and evictions in the front building of Rigaer94, we attacked a branch of the Berliner Sparkasse in Lichtenberg with stones and destroyed the windows.

30 years Liebig 34 – We never stop!

30 years Liebig 34 – We never stop!

From Squat!net, Berlin

The Liebig 34 will celebrate its 30th birthday at the beginning of July. Eviction titles, media hype and annoying cops don’t spoil these days. Viva la Liebig!

Thirty years ago, after the fall of the Wall, people from a wide variety of backgrounds flocked to East Berlin to take advantage of the chance offered by the unresolved chains of command and the unspeakable vacancy. Entire streets and blocks of houses were occupied, redesigned and filled with ideas and creativity. The streets of Friedrichshain were full of life and very practical solidarity. At one corner there was a discussion meeting, in the next open-air cinema and there food was cooked for the whole street.

Attack on the Headquarters of Police Union in Bremen, Germany

From AMW

On the night of June 11, we smashed the windows of the offices of the Police Union, GoP, in Bremen with a hammer and left the slogan: “The Police is not reformable!” A furious little contribution to the global fight against cops and racially motivated police violence.

On the closure of Kadterschmiede and our handling of open spaces

From squat!net Berlin, Germany, published May 8th, 2020

Wednesday, March 25th - Our lawyer told us that he should pass on a telephone threat from the police to us. The content of the threat was that the cops would enter Rigaer94 if Kadterschmiede would not close officially. After a due to timepressure admittedly short discussion, we then announced on twitter and our website that we would not open that day.
