06.04.2010 City of Kurdjali. Someone throw acid on a capitalist company car. Probably fired ex-workers from the same company.
08.04.2010 City of Dupnica. A man stole a police car right from the police station. Policemen started to chase him. The man crashed the police car and it exploded. The man escaped from the fire but he was arrested by the police.
15.04.2010 Small village of Kochan close to the border with Greece. There was a greek sewing company there. That night the owner of the company tried to load all the machines on trucks and move to another location (probably back to Greece). As workers heard this they came to the factory and occupied it. In previous months there was a lot of cases when foreign companies quit its work in Bulgaria, left the country and did not paid last salaries of its workers. This time this was not the case - workers occupied the factory until they received their money.
As we already mentioned in previous news in march a single woman managed to rob a bank in the city of Pleven. Unfortunately police managed to identify her on a security camera tape although she was disguised. They arrested her. It turns out that she is not a dangerous criminal neither a psychopath. She is an ordinary teacher. Now she can be sentenced up to 10 years in prison although this is her first "criminal act" and she has done it because of the misery (average salary of a teachers in Bulgaria is around 200 euro). But now she is the real people's hero of the day!

Exarchia attack athens 30/4
Vandals broke into the political office of Deputy Environment Minister Thanos Moraitis in Exarchia, central Athens, yesterday. The five assailants wore hoods and used hammers to cause extensive damage.
A court in Amfissa hearing the trial of two policemen implicated in the fatal shooting of teenager Alexis Grigoropoulos in December 2008 is unlikely to reach a verdict by June 6, by which date the officers will be eligible for release, as they will have reached the 18-month limit on being held in custody. Sources said that the court still has to hear from 15 witnesses, including forensic experts.

- As usual, after or before a trial or the vote of a new law, the main press publishes analysis about the „anarcho-autonomes“ new theory. They also talk about „anarchists“ or „UltraLeft“, trying to define people with acts and books.
This new definition of the revoltees mainly appeared after the first arrests under anti-terrorism accusation, in January 2008 ( see HERE).
And now, for the April 28th call in solidariy with the greek prisonner Giannis Dimitrakis, France info* published its ideas. We learn some „french anarchists“ travel in Greece to learn how to fight ( there, their Ultraleft homologous teach them the urban guerilla methods). And then we learn with astonishment that the DCRI (secret police for information and action) is now interested in these people. The excuse, of course, is the last demonstration in Poitiers**, in October. More than 300 people walked the streets by surprise, all full masked and disguised, using the excuse of a Carnabal at the same moment. That demonstration was an answer to a prisonners transfert to the new prison of Vivonne. The other excuse for this new watch, are the last attacks at ATM’s and banks, „these last months“. And press to add: „since then, police made out some UltraLeft activists (sic) often stay in Athens. During the house-search, they found some documents showing they stood in Greece“. Then we are offered a nice historical lesson about Exharchia, and december 2008 revolt. Of course, internet is one more time introduced as a plateform to spread violence: calls for the liberation of the 70 people arrested at the Exharchia razzia, and in solidarity with Giannis Dimitrakis. The article ends with a parallel on Tarnac case, explaining that durnig the first investigations, police didn‘t understand why the main suspect (Julien Coupat) has travelled in Thessalonique.

Unrest erupted in the Malmö district of Rosengård on Wednesday evening with police forced to seal off the area before regaining control of the situation.
Some 20 police units, a total of 50 officers, were deployed to the troubled Malmö suburb to try to calm the situation as around 20 youths rampaged through the district leaving a spate of fires and vandalism.
“We have concluded that there were a total of five fires. A couple of cars, as well as a recycling station, were some of the things burning,” Peter Martinsson at Skåne police told the Dagens Nyheter daily.
Police were called to the area in the vicinity of Ramels väg in Rosengård at around 9pm on Wednesday. Residents of the area had become concerned over the gangs of young people and feared that fighting would break out.
Fire fighters were obliged to seek a police escort as they were subjected to stone throwing while battling to put out the fires in various parts of the district.
The police have confirmed that they considered the situation had been brought under control during Wednesday night and were able to withdraw their units.
GREEK embassies have come under attack in international solidarity actions supporting a jailed anarchist.
Reports the Latin American Herald Tribune: "Four people were injured and five others arrested in a clash between police and a group of protesters who threw stones and fire bombs at the Greek Embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentine police said.
"The protesters are members of an anarchist group that is demanding the release of Giannis Dimitrakis, a Greek anarchist sentenced to 35 years in prison for a 2006 attack on a bank in Athens.
"Three police officers and one of the detained protesters were hospitalized for treatment of wounds sustained in the disturbance.
"The clash started when demonstrators tried to set fire Tuesday to the door of the embassy, which is located in the La Recoleta district."
Meanwhile, Earth Times reports an attack on the Greek embassy in Prague, Czech Republic.
It says: "Unknown perpetrators hurled a flammable substance in the garden of the Greek embassy in Prague early Thursday, likely to protest the jailing of an anarchist in Greece, officials and an embassy source said.
"The resulting fire consumed a bush and damaged the embassy's entrance door, said Pavlina Adamcova, a spokeswoman for the city's firefighters.
"Police said the embassy was empty during the attack, which took place shortly after midnight and caused damage amounting to 20,000 koruny (1,036 dollars)."
It adds that the protesters sprayed the anarchist A and the name Giannis on the building's wall.

I prefered to maintain my freedom, my independence, my dignity as a human being, than to become a creator of wealth for my boss" Marius Jacob (French illegalist) There are people, that deny the capitalist ideology that has settled in most people's mind as a given characteristic of human nature, and look for ways to slip away from its everyday paranoia.
The robbing of a bank is a practice that cancels in the most immediate way, the relationship between boss and "slave", abuser and abused. Since it allows the subject to control in its own its time and appetite for creation, without dying slowly in the workcamps increasing the profits of the bosses (big and small).
It denys giving away this whole life to this unfair economic system, begging for crums in order to survive. It's a part of the generalized attack against the rotten world of submission and part of the plan for its destruction.
Of course, a robbery of a bank just to acquire more consumerist goods, is not an action against what exists but an action that conserves it. In the end it's the subject that defines the action.
[.....] On april 28th, G.Dimitrakis, who is accused of expropriating the National Bank of Greece on Solwnos Street in Athens on January 16/2006, passed again through the court desks to appeal against the first sentence and was sent away one more time to face the justice system. In an act of solidarity, we let the fire and not the court "judge" his life's choices.
So on the morning of April 27th, we put an explosive device in front of the door of the Emporiki Bank near the courts in Hania.
P.S. 1 : Solidarity to the 3 comrades wanted for the same case and to A. Bonnano, CH. Stratigopoulos, G.Voutsis-Vogiatzis and to all those who chose to attack the temples of money.
P.S. 2: We are waiting impatiently for the political tumble of the system and the radicalisation of society for a class, antistate war.

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.
