News from Bulgaria - June 2010

01.06.2010 Very active day. Workers from two different companies - "Ledenika" and "Agrolesproject" went ot strike. Also there was a demonstration in Sofia in solidarity with people of Gaza.

06.06.2010 New protest in front of the Center for Detention of Immigrants. Anarchists, communists, liberals, ex-detainees of the Center demanded freedom for all people locked inside. Before the protest a group of at least 15 neo-nazis attacked much smaller group of 4 left radicals and beat them very seriously. Once again police showed its tolerance to the nazis as only 8 were arrested, two of them were released soon and maybe other 6 will be released too. Some days later nazis beat a group of gypsies.

10.06.2010 A group of activists blocked a main road in Sofia as a protest against nazi attacks. Somehow fascists learned about the planned direct action and make threats in internet. Despite their threats and the fact that there was no police at the begining of the action nazis did not attack. It is not a surprise - fascists rats prefer to attack only much smaller groups and not to confront equal to their size group of left radicals. After around 30 minutes police came and slowly managed to push the protestors outside the road.

16.06.2010 A 23-yours old man beat an inspector from a water supply company in the village of Kuklen. Some days earlier in the city of Bankia another man opened fire against inspectors from a electricity supply company. Companies providing electricity, water, natural gas and so on apply very high taxes and people hate them. That is why a lot of people illegally connect to the power grid and use electricity without paying.

19.06.2010 A young man (around 20-25 years old) robbed a shop armed with an axe. Police is still looking for him.

“…A handful of capitalists
have organized a criminal gang
and have kidnapped the proletarians,
demanding for ransom
their labor force,
merchandising their human activity,
their time (which is turned into money),
their own being itself…”

Anarchists solidarity protest outside Korydallos prison, the main prison in Athens, at the time of the change of the year. This protest happens every New Year's Eve for the past six years. This year more than 400 people took part in the protest that interacted with the prisoners inside through shouting mutual slogans and fireworks. The main slogan was "The passion for freedom is stronger that your prisons".

A society that punishes/the condition of incarceration/the prison of the mind/the prison as punishment/the rage of the damned will sound on the ruins of prisons/those denying obedience and misery of our era even within its hellholes/will dance together on the ruins of every last prison/with the flame of rebellion avenging whatever creates prisons.

To the prisoners struggle already counting one dead and thousands in hunger strike across greece, we stand in solidarity and anger until the destruction of every last prison.
