Ragna runs out!

Öskra! – the movement of revolutionary students has sent out this communicué:

Sometimes, hard and direct questions have to be asked and aswers demanded. Somtimes, demands have to be made about changes. Somtimes, supervision has to be granted. But sometimes, meaningless and shallow rubbish has to be shut down and silenced.

Aftaka received the following letter this morning but unfortunately no pictures

On the 22nd of June 2009the bio-medical company ORF got permission for experimental planting of GMO medicinal barley in Gunnarsholt, Rángárvallarsýslu. These experiment´s would have paved the way for general planting of genetically modified plants in Iceland. All voices of criticism, both institutions and individuals are made suspect and the little media coverage has been homogeneous and in favour of ORF. Today this permission was revoked. The reasons are amongst others:

Solidarity with Rozbrat!

Today, the free-shop on Vatnsstígur 4. was opened again. The shop, which operates in the way that people can both bring and take things completely without money, was opened for the first time, Saturday April 11th but was closed four days later when the police destroyed the upper part of the building and carried people out in a memorable way (read about that by clicking here). Today, the shop was filled with things immediately, since there is plenty enough of surplus that come from the disgusting society of over-consumption that we live in. By-walkers as well as squatters and squatting supporters checked out the free-shop and used this unknown way of ,,shopping”.

Elections took place in Iceland on Saturday, the 25th of April.

One voter decided to use his rights to vote. Showed up at the voting station and literally took a dump on the political party system, the power abuse and the general democracy distortion, wiped his ass on the ballot, neatly folded it and slipped into the ballot box.
HEHEHE

The video is here

Shit on a ballot

After a whole day of the threat of an eviction, solidarity demonstration and support, the police finally showed up at the recently opened squat in the center of Reykjavík. At 08:00 in the morning between 40 and 50 policemen, including many members of the special force, came towards the house, attacked and arrested three people who were standing outside, sweeping the ground around the house. The squatters inside were told to leave the building and if not, they would get arrested. Of course, they refused to leave.

Last Thursday, 9th of April, an empty house in the center of Reykjavík was squatted by Icelandic anarchists. The house has been empty for over a year and is only one of many houses that are owned by a construction company that plans to tear down all it’s old houses and replace with big shopping and office center.

We just received some nice photos and a bit of a text:

…

“The 60 years birthday of the war organization NATO is celebrated in various ways during this weekend.

Today a memorial statue here in Reykjavík, built in the memory of the founding of NATO, was covered in blood. The blood throwing took place in the memory of all the people that NATO has ever murdered. Also in solidarity with those who protest against the existence of NATO and interrupt the birthday party in Strassbourg.”

A new word in the icelandic vocabulary: Anarchism. An article by Aftaka appeared in the newest issue of Reykjavík Grapevine. 

Not long ago, the word anarchism was almost meaningless in Icelandic. It hardly existed. But now it seems that it has received a seat in the language and better yet—it is getting more and wider understanding. The reason must be the growing movement of anarchists and their visibility during protests and actions concerning the economic collapse.

Lækjartorg

A political street party took place on Lækjartorg square in Reykjavík last Saturday. Over a hundred people came together, lit a fire, put on music and had fun… until the police arrived and put out the fire. Then another fire was lit and people had fun… until the police came again, put out the fire, confiscated the stereo system and arrested people. But the people stood united and the event was a good start for further resistance.

An Icelandic anarchist explains his ideals

I am an anarchist and I know that the individuals who have placed themselves in power are dangerous to my community and me; therefore I consider them my enemies and I feel it is my duty to push them away and use violence if needed, because love does not imply pacifism. The nature of power tells that it will not be given back voluntarily, that’s why it needs to be removed. This is not necessarily a call for bloodshed. There are other ways (like drumming government out of its wits).
