Our beloved comrade, brother, activist and friend Vik, Vittorio 'Utopia' Arrigoni was murdered by a Salafist extreemist cell in Gaza last night. They kidnapped him, beat him, blindfolded him and hung him. Israel's blockade on the tiny Gaza strip (1.5 million people in a540km by 10 km space) and the social engineering through shock blasts of violence, containment, siege and disposession has been going on for decades. We can't even rule out that there was a more direct hand in this from the Israeli government, but even so, the influence is there, direct or indirect. Please come and mourn with us.

13-04-2011 23:31It's been 7 months now since the "case of arsons" was started in Belarus.
All this time our friends and comrades have been held behind the bars.
Having started with random detentions of activists of radially different political views in September last year, the case is finally coming to an end -
it is being brought to trial.
13-04-2011 22:07Last week, a group of Portuguese economists filed a demand for a legal investigation concerning the most recent actions of the three main ratings agencies - in what presumably could be an attempt at manipulating the normal functioning of the financial markets , and an insurgence in the normal functioning of the Portuguese democratic process. An online petition is now available for anyone who is willing to provide support to this action. (in Portuguese)

12-04-2011 11:05Let us be clear on something: we are not demanding anything. The libertarian world that we desire is here, in our beating hearts and clenched fists, not to be found through the concessions of our enemies, allegience to this or that party/union/'social movement'. We have no dialogue to be made with the world we have discovered ourselves to be at war with, as it is at war with us. And we are not alone. Across the world the attacks multiply - some claimed clearly by comrades in the perspective of the struggle against State, Capital and Hierachy in whatever forms, many, as always, a mute expression of the rage of stolen lives, broken hearts, trampled desires. Also made beautiful in their rebellion.
12-04-2011 08:06The following email has been circulated privately, but in light of the on-going debate, perhaps there is a point to telling Century Films to back-off from doing a documentary based on Mark Kennedy's story. Sometimes it is not enough to ignore, sometimes a clear response is needed - but it does not always have to be dressed up as a well-written press release...

07-04-2011 12:315PM TODAY. POLITICAL PROTEST AND THE POLICE: YOUNG PEOPLE IN BRIGHTON A REPORT ON STUDENT DEMONSTRATIONS IN BRIGHTON, 24TH AND 30TH NOVEMBER 2010
07-04-2011 03:01Without being overtly judgemental, the 16 faces police released on April 2nd (who they say are involved in criminal damage, scuffles with police on March 26th) are not 'sterotypical black blocers' - ie those who dress the part. No doubt it's great they joined our cause, but it goes to show that wearing BLACK trousers, hoodies AND covering faces with a bandana, scarf or balaclava avoids further questions by police about your identity. Not to mention keeping it on at all times and only 'dressing down' away from any action.
The CS gas used by Syrian security forces against civilian protesters may have been made in the UK. Video footage from a protest in the southern city of Daraa shows a CS gas canister bearing the distinctive red stripe that appears on some UK-made CS gas canisters. At least one person has died as a result of inhaling the supposedly 'non-lethal' gas, while many others have been killed by bullets and guns made in other western 'democracies'.
06-04-2011 18:15a couple of days ago we posted the following piece.
Which unfortunately led to a slanging match between various posters(including ourselves) using names with big A's, circled @'s, little a's, the colour black and something to do with blocs (not Lego) . Various threats and rude words were used.
