More than 2.500 people today in the antifascist march in the center of Athens.
19/5

After the end of the march, about 100 people attacked some riot police with molotov cocktails. The police responded with tons of teargasses. An hour later, riot police and undercover cops wearing hoods stormed the center of Athens (Exarchia). They started arresting people from bars and cafeterias.

They made more than 100 arrests (120 so far), and they still keep arresting people, hours later. They broke in at at least one house. It must be the biggest riot police operation in the past years.

About 1 hour ago, people started gathering outside the police headquarters to learn what is happening and support the people arrested. The riot police, without being provoked attacked the crowd with teargasses, and kept pushing them for many kilometers. The cops are still making arrests in the center of athens while they have refused any lawyers to enter the police headquarters in order to learn about the people arrested.

There are still people "trapped" inside social centers in the center of Athens, surrounded by many cops.

textOlympia Residents Stop Nazi March 10:18 Mon 23 Jan by oly anti-fascist 0 comments

Olympia—Hundreds of Olympia residents confronted Nazis outside of the corporate newspaper building here today. Nine members of the Nazi group National Socialist Movement gathered to test Olympia for future recruiting drives and a possible larger rally in July. Many of the Nazis dressed in SS Storm Trooper brownshirt uniforms and displayed large Nazi and American flags. Olympia residents were given less than a day’s notice to spread the news and organize a response.

The recent murder (on 9 January) in Paris of three Kurdish comrades, fighters for the liberation of their people, leaves us stunned and outraged. Sakîne Cansiz, founder member of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK - Partiya Karkerên Kurdistan); Fidan Doğan, representative in France of the National Congress of Kurdistan (KNK - Kongra Netewiya Kurdistan) and Leyla Söylemez, another Kurdish activist, all turned up shot dead dead in the Kurdistan Information Centre in Paris. We have every reason to suspect that the culprit behind this crime is linked to the Turkish state. This crime shows the extent of the tentacles of secret services of terrorist states in Europe, to whom the European Union shows full tolerance, if it is not actually an accomplice. [Castellano]

Central to anarchism is the belief in self-organization and self-determination of the people. But there are topics on which many anarchists reject the pro-freedom position, paticularly involving free speech and also national self-determination.

textNew pamphlet: Beating Fascism: Anarchist anti-fascism in theory and practice Oct 24 Kate Sharpley Library 1 comments

"Beating Fascism" is a new compilation dealing with the anarchist critique of fascist ideas and the practical ways their deadly authoritarian project has been challenged. It goes from the 'People's commandos' who fought against Mussolini's bootboys, through the Spanish Civil War, to the anti-fascist activists of the eighties, nineties and beyond who took up the challenge from a new crop of boneheads.
