4 refugees died in only 5 days in state run Greek refugee camps. EU governments want to start deporting refugees who arrive after March 1 back to Greece, although the situation in Greece didn’t improve for many people.
We are in Thessaloniki, Greece at the moment to support and work with refugees. Tomorrow we will travel to Serbia to continue our work with refugees there.

Victim still in Harborview Hospital; Shooter is well-known right wing gun activist.
Social media activists claim to have identified the person who shot an anti-racist organizer on the University of Washington’s Seattle (UW-Seattle) campus on Friday, January 20, 2017, as a well-known right-wing gun activist attending white nationalist Milo Yiannopoulos’ event with his wife, also a gun activist. Although the shooter shot a person in a protest situation, University of Washington Police have refused to make an arrest, and released the shooter and the person who accompanied them to turn themselves into the police early Saturday morning. King County prosecutor Dan Satterberg has not indicated any plan to pursue prosecution. Local politicians have remained ominously quiet.
Call for solidarity actions for INDE squat in Koper, Slovenia
In the last few years we have seen new autonomous spaces emerging in Slovenia, joining the struggles of older squats all over the country. Along the Slovenian coast, two enormous buildings were occupied until recently. The occupations brought radical politics and different social relations to their environment. Both squats were always open to a variety of projects and initiatives, but had strong anarchist presence and activities as well. The spaces used to be factories, which were destroyed by the brutal privatization.

On January 20th in downtown Minneapolis, a group broke away from the larger, passive demonstration called in protest Donald Trump’s inauguration. This breakaway action was not simply remarkable because it shot off fireworks or blocked the light-rail. Nor because dumpsters were moved into traffic or because paint was tossed at the juvie. These actions and others are welcome, and one can assume they produced great joy in those who carried them out. However, come morning, the paint will have been scrubbed off, traffic flowing as normal, and Donald Trump will begin his first full day as President of the United States.
On 30 June 2015, anti-fascists in Aachen spontaneously started a demonstration against racism and police brutality following the death of a person in The Hague through abuse by local police. After a demonstration throughout the city centre, the activists gathered at the market place, distributed flyers and erected a banner. Within minutes, the appearance of a mobile patrol unit as well as two plainclothes officers led to an escalation of the previously peaceful situation. With heavy use of baton and pepper spray, they attempted to restrain the activists. The attack left many among the demonstrators injured and the plainclothes officers were hurt by their colleagues’ use of pepper spray. Afterwards, ten seemingly arbitrary persons were taken into custody.

The decision puts water for 17 million people at risk
Cannon Ball, N.D. — The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe said today that President Donald Trump’s executive action towards an approval of an easement for the Dakota Access Pipeline risks contaminating tribal and American water supplies while disregarding treaty rights. The Trump administration’s politically motivated decision violates the law and the Tribe will take legal action to fight it.
A long-time anti-fascist was shot Friday night during a protest of alt-right racist and troll Milo Yiannopoulos, in the middle of a crowded square. The shooter, who later turned himself in, claiming self-defense, was released by UW police early Saturday morning. Somehow, this is barely newsworthy. Meanwhile, local news outlets condemn the violent protesters for throwing “potentially lethal” balloons filled with paint. This is our new reality.
