Soon the revolutionary violence will encompass broader sections of society as the fightback against the weak Coalition government gathers pace. These initial clashes will pale in comparison to the coming social struggle which will make serious attacks on the British establishment, the Rich, and their way of life. The barriers between those in struggle are coming down, our violent resistance finds new accomplices ready to attack the conditions in their life which make them miserable: State & Capital.
Cops, prisons, politicians, bosses, work, nationalism, dead-time : All must go – Ignite the peripheries of conflict and widen the struggle into new areas.
Decades of racist and brutal policing against the young people of the UK will spread a far-reaching fury burning with a new intensity, spreading through the generations, fueled by the anti-political sensibilities of a new generation of radicals who will not regurgitate the recuperative lies and deceit of the social activists or the political Left, and who will seek to attack directly the class enemy, organising themselves as they see fit.
For future attacks against capitalism, monarchy and the state – For social insurrection.
Solidarity with all imprisoned fighters everywhere.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall have been attacked by protesters as tuition fees demonstrations descended into vandalism and violence.
Charles and Camilla were unharmed after their car was struck and daubed in paint as they made their way to the Royal Variety Performance in central London.
When the royal couple arrived at the London Palladium they appeared relaxed and smiled - though their Rolls-Royce limousine had clear signs of damage.
The passenger-side rear window was badly cracked and the car was spattered with paint thrown in the Regent Street attack
Prime Minister David Cameron said it was "shocking and regrettable" that the royal couple's car had been attacked.
It came amid several hours of violence which saw a number of police and protesters taken to hospital following a series of running battles in the Westminster area after MPs voted to hike tuition fees to up to £9,000.
Protesters attacked a number of Government buildings near the House of Commons, smashing windows at the Treasury and the Supreme Court, vandalising statues in Parliament Square, including that of Winston Churchill, and damaging shops on Oxford Street.
Santiago, Chile - Relatives of the prisoners killed at San Miguel prison attack authorities giving list of victims
Relatives of the 81 prisoners killed by a fire today at the San Miguel Chilean prison as a result of a riot attacked the authorities responsible for disseminating the list of victims.
Family members threw bottles and stones at officers outside the jail, according to the account given by witnesses to the Chilean media. "We are\living in chaos," said a journalist from Radio Bio Bio on the scene.
The police had to intervene to stop the attacks, he added.
One of the most affected was the mayor (Governor) metropolitan Fernando Echeverria, whom the family insulted and threw eggs and other projectiles.

According to reports, several pieces of generator machinery were sabotaged at the Huntington Lane coal mining site in the past week.
Coal is one of the most destructive energy sources and is being mined from a site in the heart of Shropshire's beautiful countryside, despite continued protests against the mining.

Police violently attacked to the students in Turkey who wanted to protest the summit of Prime Minister and University Rectors. One pregnant student (age 19) lost her baby because police continuously kicked her from the belly even though she yelled she was pregnant.
Police violently attacked to the students in Turkey who wanted to protest the summit of Prime Minister and University Rectors. One pregnant student (age 19) lost her baby because police continuously kicked her from the belly even though she yelled that she was pregnant. Around 150 students who were coming outside of Istanbul were stopped at the entrance of the city and attacked, beaten and detented by the cops. Many were severely injured. It is claimed even in the right-wing bourgeois media that police used agent orange sprays against the students which was also used by USA army in Vietnam that can cause cancer.
Here are some videos;
Yesterday morning a banner proclaiming 'Cops Pigs Muderers! 6/12/08' was hung from Newcastle's inner motorway bridge, in remembrance of the Greek uprising two years ago and all those that suffer at the hands of the police.
On the 6th December 2008 Alexis Grigoropoulos was murdered by a policemans gun in the Exarchia area of Athens. Violence against police, property and capitalism immediately erupted across Greece, lasting weeks.
We have not forgotten the actions of the state or of the murdering pigs.
We stand in solidarity with all of those who resist the brutality of the State, and all those who languish in prisons for the 'crime' of resistance.

6 VIDEO FROM METRO COPS INSIDE ATHENS 6/12VIDEO FROM LARISSA DOWN OF GREECE 6/12 VIDEO FROM VOLOS DOWN OF GREECE 6/12
DEMO IN ATHENS VIDEO 6/12
6 Dec 2010 - On the second anniversary of the murder of Alexandros Grigoropoulos there were demonstrations in 17 cities of Greece. In Athens, two events took place: the first in the morning, called by students and teachers, the principal in the afternoon with a greater presence of anarchists, anti-authoritarian and leftist movements.
During the first march, students greeted the police throwing oranges, previously, in cities and suburbs, spontaneous demonstrations of high school students marched through the streets and in the area of Aigaleo, a hundred of them collided with the police after they entered the local police station.
Before the main march began, the fighting had already begun, triggered by the ban to start the event and provocations of the police in the university area where the participants were gathering.
The ban on demonstrating and the charges against the first clustered in the street, failed to block the various groups that were gathered beyond the police lines.
Thousands of people then came together, without permission, in the streets of Athens and the deployment of riot cops, 3000 agents, attacked at several points surrounding the blocks of protesters who responded with rocks, sticks, cans of paint and some petrol bombs (mainly in clashes outside Parliament).
All night the fighting continued in the district of Exarchia, where Alexis was killed. Still charges, tear gas, and attacks against police barricades, many protesters held, some wounded among the police.
It seems that the cops have also destroyed the marble plaque placed by demonstrators in memory of Alexis.
For now, according to the regime media, it seems there are 84 held among the demonstrators.
Statement of Solidarity from USA during 2 Year Demonstration of Alexis Grigoropoulos Submitted by anarchoskin69 on Mon, 2010-12-06 11:14. Tags: Anarchist People History Opinion Two years ago in Greece a 15 year old anarchist was put in a body bag by their state's oppressive assassination. Revolution, revolution - do you hear it churning in the wind?
Police harassment in the metro station in the mass force. The thugs will be stopped eventually, when this system collapses. Until then, resistance for revolution. Anarchists there are being treated like animals. No more war we declare, but another anarchist tonight was put in a body bag during the demonstrations to mark the anniversary of the 15 year old's death. The system, does it work? No. Profit over people must stop, along with the secret armies. To be so indifferent to the people's wishes is crazy, crazy to be done in such a time of crisis. Another day in a violent bloody world, and I see the images of the anarchist in Greece laying on the pavement with a wound similar to a bullet hole near a group of police, unattended. What do they hide? This one is for the ones we've lost in the struggle. No words can express my regret and loss on this eve of the demonstration. Wasted life, left with no hope after the state took it away. Waiting on the revolution.. but that's the question. Are we waiting or acting? Black death can await us at times from the hands of those blue uniforms. The same old lies, "We're here to protect!" The arrest of our movement will not last. This is most obvious in Greece.
Meanwhile the masses still repeat the same thoughts on this eve of resistance, "I love you television". I suppose I don't have much excuse, being at home working for a company in Ohio, and after I finish this shift I will only return to my own streets in Indiana to spraypaint the backs of stop-signs. The fact is, why can't we mobilize like they are doing in Greece? The Days of Solidarity for the Belarusian Anarchists is coming this December 10th to 13th, but I imagine we won't see anything like what has happened in Greece today/tonight. I stop to think, "Why can't I see similar actions in resistance to the I-69 and expansion of logging of southern Indiana's old-growth forests?" I'm sure the sentiment is common all across the USA, North America and for most of the globe, for your location wherever you are and whatever resistance occurs there.
So what do we need to improve on? We need to figure out how to rally punx. Let's face it, despite how much some anarchists seem to want to ignore the punk rock involvement with anarchism as debilitating, look at what it provoked in Greece. It is unfortunate what happened to Alexis, but the reason the State targeted him was because they saw how critically important those youth were. If they could attack the youth movement of anarchism, they could persuade by force others from becoming involved. They are our comrades, the future anarchists who will struggle for the new world after even we are gone. This is the new way of things, a new direction. The times of the old anarchists are gone, so as anarchists let's not stay attached to those times. Why should we live through the ways of the old when we are alive and not them? Solidarity with those in prisons is just as important as ever, but we must remember the youth. With massive demonstrations beginning in the UK, Italy and Greece, we shall see what comes of this. Until then, the battle continues...
To be continued...

Early this morning, during rush hour traffic, we dropped a banner over highway 99. The banner reads, "POLICE VIOLENCE IS NO ACCIDENT. COPS ARE KILLERS."
We of course recognize that this is a small, symbolic act. We simply wish to demonstrate that the fires that burn today--the two-year anniversary of the murder of Alexis-- in the streets of Greece are fires that burn within us as well. Let's bring fuel to the flames.
Solidarity with the struggle in Greece today and always.
Solidarity with the American comrade viciously attacked by the thugs of the Delta squad.
Solidarity with Roger Clement on the day of his sentencing.
Solidarity with the Asheville 11 on the occasion of their plea hearing.
For John T. Williams and all victims of the police, locally and everywhere. Against the state and its guard dogs. For anarchy!
In the predawn hours of December, 6th 2010, to mark the two year anniversary of the murder of Alexandros Grigoropoulos in Exarchia, a smoke bomb was ignited inside the Portland Metro Police Club (618 SE Alder st.)--a private bar, ballrooom, and athletic facility operated by the Portland Police Association. We did this to articulate our utter contempt towards the police, and our hatred of the state and capitalism in general.
This act of sabotage was a gesture of revolutionary solidarity with the imprisoned anarchists of the Conspiracy Cells of Fire in Greece, The Asheville 11, Christos Stratigopolous, the recently released Alfredo Bonanno and all those resisting state repression everywhere.
Fire to the cops, bosses, and politicians!
For anarchy and communism!

On the 6th of december of 2010 ids the court of appeals for our comrade giannis dimitrakis for a bank robbery in 2006. In the early hours of the 6th we attacked a halifax bank on kilburn high road with paint bombs and wrote FREEDOM TO G.DIMITRAKIS on the front window. this is just a small token of solidarity to our comrade. we would also like to salute all the comrades in greece and all over the world in and out of prison that choose the path of attack against the system. SOLIDARITY IS OUR WEAPON FIRE TO THE PRISONS this is just the beginning... black spiders in the london web
Culmine willingly publishes and translates communiques relative to anarchist direct action undertaken anywhere in the world. We remember with pleasure that Severino Di Giovanni had a regular column like this - precisely in Culmine - called "Face to face with the enemy."
With the changing times, many claims are made directly on the Internet and in countries where there is no strict control of the network connections (e.g. fascist Italy) there are no great risks to those who send clandestine communiques. Unfortunately, this phenomenon increases the risk of false press releases or actual provocations. Recently we have had to deal with examples from Chile and Mexico.
More recently there is the case of an Argentinian brigade claiming actions of a certain weight, it is almost always of attacks, robberies, shootings. All actions that could have the approval of real rebels, provided they are truthful.
We of Culmine, in the light of recent events, have begun to have doubts and we need some confirmation.
But let's step back, re-reading some of the claims signed by the brigade, we read: "We are mainly anarchists" meaning they are not all anarchists, "we collaborate with a group of classist comrades who have decided to unite their destiny with our true antisystem fighting against union bureaucracy" which concerns us little, since we are not classist and that we are not fighting at all against the union bureaucracy.
Concerning an arsonist attack against buses, in a wage dispute, it was written "may no exploiter remain unpunished, nor any bureaucrat without warning from the moment their actions are observed by the proletarian working mass" ... but what proletarian working mass? Not even the 70s Italianist workerists expressed themselves in this way!
Another report on the theft of weapons from a barracks, concluded with the appeal "arms for the people." Again, hyper-populist language!
About the explosive attack of Cipolletti, which caused the death of a garbage collector, the brigade in question only talked of the death after being urged by the Células Revolucionarias. Here's the question and answer: c.r.: "it seems important that they give their views on recent events in Patagonia Argentina, where we sincerely believe a person who died was not the objective of this action. " Brigade: "unfortunately it was not like the cell of the area is making a self-criticism for this and will plan better for future attacks."
And their last release - among others - that relative to the assault on a security van in San Nicolás. This is a question of a real military assault, with powerful firearms (FAL, M-16 and other armaments), by a group of more than a dozen attackers, with at least three stolen cars.
Disproportionate firepower to send to the other world a couple of cops, as they want to make it understood by the statement. In fact, this is one of the many armed attacks on security vans ended badly, partly because the group focus seems to be primarily that of liquidating the two patrols rather than breaking into the armored vehicle.
The Argentine press has not given any weight to the claim of the brigade and points more to the idea of a band made up of cops and criminal elements, which is quite frequent in that country. The following two videos to help you understand the dynamics of the assault: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmGmdoRpwZI&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQtC1C3c3FM&feature=related
The statement twice uses the term "the comrades withdrew with order", unusual language for anarchist action group. These are our concerns. We do not feel like adding more. We are always on the side of those attacking the system, but we want to understand who we are dealing with. Actions do not speak for themselves, two cops killed by other cops (real or potential) do not interest us. We do not know what to do with the proletarian masses in arms!
from our nothing
Yesterday night (December 4th), the scums of the anti-terrorist squad raid into various apartments and social spaces in Athens, Piraeus, Thessaloniki, Agrinio and Crete claiming that weaponry was found. The well-paid state media puppets set up feasts for the cop’s “success against terrorism”, producing hysteria and terror. After 24 hours it was announced that the weaponry found have never been used in any attacks.
After a full day of deliberate lack of information, in the evening of December 5th the police gave in publicity the names and the photos of the 6 persons arrested in Athens, Piraeus and Crete, asking “citizens” for more information… For the 2 of the 6 arrested persons, there were arrest warrants for the “Conspiracy of Cells of Fire” case.
The same night in Thessaloniki, secret cops and hooded cops of the anti-terrorist squad raid into the occupied anti-authoritarian space “Nadir” which is located in the students residence of Thessaloniki’s University. They seized papers and computers, beat the people inside, while they went on numerous detains and 11 arrests. Dozens of people in solidarity gathered outside the place. The cop’s raid followed after an attack to a private security guardhouse inside the University campus.
Also, cops blockaded streets in Agrinio, near the anarchist “Agrinio Haunt”. The electricity went off in the whole house block with the excuse of the “anti-terrorism raids”.
Junta banned the basic right of the detained and the arrested to contact with their lawyers for more than 24 hours.
Τhe announcement of the defense counsel of one of the allegedly arrested is characteristic:
“What with certainty so far has been disarticulated are the procedural rights of the detainees and to communicate with relatives and advocates. The absolute prohibition on the exercise of their fundamental rights, upon the completion of nearly 24 hours after their arrest, and the denial of confirmation of the names of the detainees, borders on rapture. Contempt is complemented by the usual method of selective leaks and communication manipulation of public opinion. And if all these are happening under the cover of the public prosecutor’s office, the coincidence of the mechanisms of repression not concerning protection, but in the abolition of the legal and constitutional order, is confirmed.
One day before the completion of two years of the murder of Alexis Grigoropoulos, and while the whole society is in turmoil and is being prepared for mobilizations, the guilty State obviously needs to atone, to present successes and mainly to legitimize the authoritarianism which is being prepared for tomorrow’s anniversary.
Zero tolerance! No political and communication intentionality over rights and freedoms!
Athens, 5 of December of 2010, 12.00
The defense counsel of one of the alleged detainees”
Apart from the yesterday’s raids, detains and arrests, state went on an another pre-emptive move prohibiting the passage of vehicles in the whole center of Athens (!), because of tomorrow’s demonstration on December 6th. In particular, the vehicles passage will stop from 10am on December 6th till 7am on December 7th, while the parking in central Athens is prohibited from 6am of December 6th till 7am on December 7th as you can see on the picture.
The students community and many anarchists/anti-authoritarian and far-left organizations are calling for gathering/demo in Propylea, central Athens. There are calls for demonstrations in more than 20 cities throughout Greece.
SOLIDARITY TO ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS

NOTHING HAS FINISHED!
Houses now raided throughout Athens
Statement of Solidarity from the Aotearoa NZ Anarchist Black Cross in relation to the violent attack on an activist from the United States on the 15th of November 2010 at the anti-IMF demonstration in Athens, Greece.
1. We denounce the actions of the Greek police in this case, and in particular the actions of Delta Force, whose brutal attack on the American woman was decidedly intentional and dangerously close to lethal.
2. We stand in solidarity with the comrades in Greece and around the world fighting the state, capital and all its repressive agents including the IMF and World Bank.
3. We are in support of whatever means of revolt or resistance arises to the police.
4. We demand an investigation into the incident.
5. We demand justice for our other Greek comrades, (including two dead in the past two years, Alexis and Lambros) who are severely repressed and beaten on a daily basis.
6. We seek an end to all prisons and freedom for all political prisoners.
More information, including photos of the injuries suffered, can be found on Indybay (http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2010/11/26/18665048.php)
In the last week of November machines at Mainshill were sabotaged. Twelve machines had hydraulics and electrics cut, these included dumper trucks, fuel tanks, a digger and bulldozers.
Mainshill has been operational since spring this year, it is part of Scottish Coal's programme of open cast mining in the Douglas valley, South Lanarkshire. This is causing ill health to local people and destroying their surroundings, it fails to provide jobs and lines the pockets of the bosses and politicians. On top of this the mining and burning of coal is a leading cause of climate change which is wiping out ecosystems and people around the world.
This action was intended to hamper the extraction of coal, cost Scottish Coal money and as an act of solidarity with everyone struggling against the coal industry.
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.
ARSON AND WILDFIRE FOR EVERY PRISON
