Athens, August 26. Alert! What we have been announcing to you for a month and a half has just begun this morning (yesterday morning, Enough 14), just before dawn. Athens’ famous rebel and supportive neighbourhood is completely surrounded by huge police forces: many riot police buses (MAT), anti-terrorist untis (OPKE), police on motorbikes (DIAS), members of the secret police (asfalitès), as well as a helicopter and several drones.Continue reading Greek territory: #Exarcheia under police occupation!
Athens, Greek territory. Around 06:00am cops started with the eviction of refugee housing squats in Exarcheia. As far as we know the following squats were evicted: Gare – Spirou Trikoupi 17 – Oniro and Rosa de Foc. We have no conformation of an eviction of Clandestina. There were some tweets that Clandestina was also evicted but according to our information Clandestina was evicted earlier this year. We will update this article when we get more information about Clandestina. There is a call for a gathering at 06:00pm at Notara.Continue reading #Athens: Cops evicted refugee housing squats in #Exarcheia

Wuppertal, German territory. Yesterday (August 20) a police operation took place in the Osterholz forest. According to statements by various journalists and the Westdeutsche Zeitung (WZ), the police claimed that this operation took place because “objects such as bars, chains, wood and pallets were transported into the forest” (quote WZ). The WZ also writes that the “alarmed police” met five people on the spot who were sent off. This police depiction is not correct. The police operation lasted about five hours. The five people who were sent off did not arrive in the forest until several hours after the police had started the operation and therefore could not have been the reason for the operation. Nor did the five people have any objects such as poles, wood, pallets or chains with them. Nothing was confiscated by the police when the five people were sent off.Continue reading Osterholz Forest Wuppertal: Police threaten forest walkers with pepper spray

A couple of days ago we received a submission of a press release from Stand Up Against Racism about the demo in London on August 3. What we didn’t know at the moment we published it, is that this organisation is affiliated with the SWP. (For more info on the SWP, see tweet in the article.) Today we republish a report that was originally published by Oxford Anti-Fascists about the demo in London. We deleted the Stand Up to Racism/SWP article as we will not support the SWP and affiliated organizations.Continue reading #Oxford Anti-Fascists August 3: #London is Anti-fascist! No Pasaran!

We ( The Cinema Committee) are happy to present our latest work, The Great Anarchist Conspiracy, a documentary that charts anarchism’s resilient survival from the 1890s all the way up the 1970s. The fact that you are reading this, and are most likely an anarchist, is proof that our international movement has survived every attempt to crush it. Against impossible odds, and without wielding state power, the anarchist movement continues to spread across the planet, even as you read this.Continue reading The Great Anarchist Conspiracy

The following piece by Brazilian anarchist Felipe Corrêa reviews contemporary discussions of power from an anarchist perspective and their contributions to a broader theory of power for utilization in building analysis and strategy. To avoid confusion the article title has been changed to refer to an “anarchist theory of power” but we have preserved the articles use of the phrase “libertarian theory of political power” – as outside the U.S. the term “libertarian” has always historically been associated with anarchism.Continue reading Towards An Anarchist Theory of Power
