Catalonia: For the extension of the Black February campaign to Barcelona

To all who desire to stand in solidarity in a coordinated or spontaneous fashion when combative squatting and its self-organized methods are in danger; to all who see clearly the parallels of repressive logic between what is happening in Greece and what is happening here in the same historic moment; to all who see the clear escalation and coordination of the current offensive by the eurofascist States against all subversive attitudes that don’t conform to their democratic lines – through immediate, violent intervention against our spaces, our people, our daily routines of activity, and the survival of our own self-organization and struggle.

It has become obvious that although this offensive on the part of different States is perpetual and ongoing, it is clearly coordinated and directed in this precise moment in order to encircle, divide, and destroy all of the physical praxis of squatting, from Barcelona to Greece. This praxis is necessary for our activities and survival, and the actions of many. [Read More]

Buenos Aires (Argentina): Solidarity mural for a Black February

In Buenos Aires streets, we painted a mural in solidarity with the squats in Greece and the world, in the context of the call for a Black February.

This action is symbolic; we do not believe that by painting a wall we put the Greek government into checkmate for its attack on squatted spaces that defy Power. However, we do see in it the potential of what it could mean – that is, not to turn a deaf ear to a cry for international solidarity. [Read More]

Lima (Peru): Anarchist collective Marea Rebelde joins in the worldwide campaign of direct actions, from the 2nd to the 12th of February 2013

From Lima, we join in the international solidarity campaign, even though we believe in it on a daily basis. So, we prepare an informative activity on squats and liberated spaces that resist the authority’s blows in Greece and the world. As some compas in the South have pointed out, ‘the most revolutionary solidarity is to continue the fight in each of our regions.’

For each project destroyed, two new ones should arise across the globe.

For each imprisoned comrade, our actions should do the talking. [Read More]

Paris (France): Solidarity action with the squats attacked by the Greek State

parisfondationhellenique28janvier2013On Monday, January 28th, 2013 around 50 people went to the Hellenic Foundation (Jourdain Boulevard, in the 14th arrondissement of Paris) to give a talk at the beginning of an evening dedicated to ‘the destiny of modern Greece.’ They unfurled a banner before the public which read: ‘In Greece like elsewhere, solidarity with squats, down with private property!’ and distributed the text below to everyone.

IN GREECE LIKE ELSEWHERE:
ACTIVE SOLIDARITY WITH SQUATS AND SELF-ORGANIZED SPACES!

Committed to wielding power, money and property, using ever more high-profile and violent means to protect it through the police, army and other control and surveillance apparatuses, the various States play their own unique role all over the world, targeting subversive and revolutionary struggles and resistance where they’re most on the offensive.

Siegburg (Germany): Worldwide action days for liberated spaces, 2–12 February

libertaerejugendsuThe Siegburg Libertarian Youth (in North Rhine-Westphalia) addresses a call-out in the context of the Black February direct action days, and draws particular attention to few regional issues and developments, so that solidarians can also express their support to various local initiatives and projects.

First, they send all their strength and love to the Autonomous Space Cologne (AZ Köln), which is once again threatened with eviction. Next, they look forward to another 20 years and an eternity of the Self-organized Youth Centre (SJZ) in Siegburg, declaring: ‘We are here and we will fight! SJZ in Siegburg stays!’ Also, they are excited about the growing efforts of people to establish libertarian centres in the city of Bonn and wish them all the best. [Read More]

Lisbon (Portugal): Reportback from an anti-authoritarian protest in solidarity with the Greek squats, the NO TAV movement and the ZAD occupation

Last Saturday, January 26th, between 2.30pm and 6pm, there was an anti-authoritarian protest against capitalism, fascism and repression, in solidarity with the comrades from Greece and the entire world, and in support of liberated spaces held in Lisbon.

The communiqué specifically dealt with the frontal attack of the Greek State against the anti-authoritarian movement; the political repression of activists in the ZAD (Zone à Défendre, against the new airport in the outskirts of Nantes, France) and fighters against the TAV (Italy); the repression of the indigenous movements; the violent repression of the mass demonstrations around Europe (as on the 14N general strike); and the attack of the police with tear gas against young students of the basic education in a school in Braga (Portugal). A call to a struggle without borders. [Read More]

Solidarity campaign for liberated spaces and anarchist comrades worldwide

“We call for a worldwide campaign of direct actions in solidarity with liberated spaces from the 2nd to the 12th of February 2013.

But we don’t want to stop after a couple of actions, because this is much more than just a reaction to repression. This is a call out to all anarchists and anti-authoritarians to fight now across the world.

Even though the recent onslaught of the Greek State against the anarchist/anti-authoritarian spectrum was the initial spark for writing this call, several examples around the globe show us that the police and municipal authorities along with giant corporations are cooperating excellently with each other, attacking solidarian structures and pacifying societies at a transnational level. During the past few weeks and months, in parts of the world, where people suffer from the systematic impoverishment and extended gentrification plans, it increasingly came to State/Capital’s attacks on radical movements, including repression against concrete forms of resistance such as land occupations, autonomous projects, company headquarters’ occupations, or strike actions. It thus deems important that we also connect our struggles worldwide, and fight back in the here and now. Action in response to attacks on squatted spaces at your location could be the spark for you. Take action on the streets and let your imagination run wild to spread the message of active resistance. [Read More]
