London: Fascist Attack At Pie ‘n’ Mash Squat in Deptford

squat.net

Last night, Saturday the 9th of November, two bonehead hooligans kicked in the front windows of the Pie ‘n’ Mash squatted community cafe in Deptford, London.

After stomping around the streets of Deptford in the last weeks, and even entering the squat twice previously, the two hooligans demanded to be let in, in order to beat up the squatters, and then proceeded to put their steel-toes through the front door before scarpering as support arrived from upstairs.

The boneheads had been seen the night before in the off-licence (liquor store) abusing the owners, calling them taliban and making homophobic jibes, and seem to think they have a free reign of an area that has for many years been a stronghold of multiculturalism and antifascist community. We have since spoken to the shop owners who are excited to be part of organising against these wannabe-nazis, and we will be coordinating with anarchists, antifascists, and neighbourhood groups to keep these scum off our streets.

Get in touch with the Pie ‘n’ Mash squat at squatcafe [at] riseup [dot] net to help with the neighbourhood outreach.

Fuck the fash. We are antifash pie ‘n’ mash.

#memory161 – International Campaign in Memory of Antifascists Murdered by Neo-Nazis Nov 10 – Dec 20, 2019

Anarchists Worldwide

★ English ★

November 16, 2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the assassination of Ivan “Kostolom” Khutorskoi- a comrade, friend and elder brother.

He was a significant member of the anti-fascist movement in the beginning of the millennium, one of the leaders of RASH-Moscow. Ivan not only inspired people for the struggle against neo-Nazis who created a lawless environment on the streets of Russian cities, he was an example for us, thanks to his personal qualities: moral courage, devotion to friends, responsibility and kindness. It is impossible to overestimate his contribution to the anti-fascist scene in the Eastern Europe countries.

We launch a campaign in memory of Ivan and other anti-fascists who died at the hands of right-wing radicals in 21st century.

We ask you to join the solidarity actions in your city from November 10 to December 10: draw a graffiti, place a banner during football match, make a campaign or an commemoration event. All ideas are welcome. A movie about Ivan is available with the subtitles in different languages https://youtu.be/P_pfgPf3PG0

Post the photo and text for the campaign with the hashtag #memory161 or/and send it to memory161(at)riseup(dot)net. We also collect information about anti-fascists from all over the world murdered by neo-Nazis and other right-wing extremists during last 20 years. Please send photos and texts as well as clarifying questions to memory161(at)riseup(dot)net

Distribute this text, information about solidarity actions and campaigns among your comrades and on the anti-fascist resources of your cities and countries.

No one is forgotten, nothing is forgotten.

Support antifascist prisoner David Campbell and anti-ISIS prisoner Aidan James

Cautiously pessimistic

David Campbell, a New York-based antifascist, is starting an 18-month sentence after being convicted of “gang assault”, a charge that sounds similar to the notoriously terrible principle of “joint enterprise”, allowing people to be convicted for someone else’s actions. To make things a little easier while he’s inside, you can donate money here, send him a message using this form which his friends will print out and pass on to him, or pick something off his very extensive reading list (or even choose a book you think he’d like that’s not on there) and order a copy to be sent to:

David Campbell #3101900657

Red& Black Telly: RACISM AT GOLDSMITHS UNIVERSITY.

Werin Barîkadan – A las Barricadas in Kurdish

DayX – The moment has come – The war has started!

Internationalist Commune

A few hours ago the fascist Turkish state started its occupation operation on the liberated territories of Northeast Syria.

Turkish war planes attack the towns and villages of Serekaniye and Gire Spi. Qamishlo, Derik and many other places along the border are under heavy artillery fire. The self-defence forces of the Democratic Federation of Northeast Syria are responding to the attacks of the hordes of fascists with severity, hundreds of thousands of fighters and the civilian population at their side are ready to fight to the end. The situation is clear, we call for global resistance.

Declaration of the Internationalist Commune:

DayX – The moment has come – The war has started! We call to RiseUp, to defend Rojava

The imperialist forces have decided to go to war. The troops on the ground are waving the flags of Turkey and of the Islamic State, but the decision was not only made in Ankara but also in the palaces in Washington, Moscow, Paris and Berlin.

Since the beginning, the Revolution in Rojava as been an internationalist revolution. A revolution not only to free the Kurdish population in Syria, but also the Middle East from the centuries of colonialism, oppression and dictatorships. And it has been an internationalist Revolution, because many internationalists joined this revolution, on the front line against the Islamic State and the Turkish fascism, we helped in hospitals, planted trees and worked to build up a democratic, ecological society, based on the liberation of women. And many revolutionaries joined the struggle all over the world, because the revolution in Syria has shown to all of us, that another world is not just theoretically possible, but it’s actually being built up in everyday life.

Today the moment has come, to show what we have built in the last years of comradeship and internationalism all over the globe. Today the moment has come to put internationalism once more into practice by defending the revolution, and through this, we will defend our hopes, wishes and our dreams.

Even if we are standing against the second biggest NATO army, with thousands of islamist gangs as their cannon fodder we know that behind this revolution millions of revolutionaries, friends, sisters and brothers are standing. And with all of of them, with all of you, we will increase our political protest to the level of political resistance, until there are no more weapon exports to Turkey, until the Turkish fascist regime is defeated.
