Poland, WARHEAD #16 - May 2002 issue FUCK ALL GOVERNMENTS

by Zaczek Monday, May. 20, 2002 at 4:29 AM

Welcome to next issue of WARHEAD


Welcome to next issue of WARHEAD. Few months passed since last issue.

Because of that I resigned from publishing some older actions, if you want

to read about them, you should check Abolishing Borders from Below #3 and

you will know everything. As usual there were plenty of actions and other

activity and what you can read here is far from being complete list of

events. Enjoy.

Workers Initiative

Workers Initiative of an Anarchist Federation is a new group, finally formed

after discussions in a movement about necessity of forming group which would

deal with workers problems etc. As for now they are present in few cities,

there are few papers published about the subject and whole idea is slowly

getting popularity. Workers Initiative was present during few conflicts

between workers and employers in Szczecin's shipyard and in other places.

Food Not Bombs

Food Not Bombs network is growing in Poland. There are already groups in

Szczecin, Wroclaw, Gliwice, Bialystok, Poznan, Zielona Gora, Lodz and few

other places. Some of them distribute food regularly every week or even

twice a week, some of them do it on less regular basis.

Anti-Fascist Actions in Bialystok

Bialystok is place of continuous conflict between growing nazi movement and

militant fractions of anti-fascists. On 27th of April there was an

Anti-Fascist demonstration. Half an hour before demo started Antifa security

group of 8 people attacked 30 people strong group of nazis waiting for the

demonstration. In scuffle which resulted from that one anti-fascist and 4

nazis were injured and fascist bastards were forced to run. Additionally

they were afterwards stopped by police. Demonstration was very loud and

colourful with over 120 people participating. During demonstration car with

fascists inside was attacked and front window was damaged, but police

prevented more serious action. After demonstration in the evening nazis 6

times tried to attack the squat but each time were chased by Antifa crew. In

night few nazis were also attacked on the bus stop by Antifa patrol, at

least one of them seriously injured. Level of confrontation is increasing in

Bialystok as Anti-Fascists are doing more and more militant actions against

the nazis. In recent case leader of nationalist and racist band from

Bialystok got attacked in his home during "night visit" from anti-fascist

crew. There was also one serious attack of about 20 nazis on the squat. They

were repelled with bottles and stones, but they broke windows or damaged in

other way 3 cars on a parking lot belonging to people who live in

neighbourhood. Antifa is patrolling streets on daily basis now and most

attempts of nazis to do something are finished before they have chance to


More trials against anarchists in Bialystok

There are already few people from local groups charged with various charges.

There are also over 40 misdemeanour trials against anarchist from all over

Poland who participated in support action outside prison for one of our

comrades and few other actions. One of squatters from Bialystok, Jan

Stolarski was jailed in Gliwice, after he broke conditions of his release

from prison, where he was serving time for assault on a nazi skinhead. His

release date is September 2003. Another activist from Bialystok is charged

with assault and robbery after he participated in attack on nazi skinheads

on a bus stop. Trial of "Rufik", anti-fascist accused of assault with an

dangerous item on a nazi skinhead is going to be finished at the end of May.

"Lapa"- another anti-fascist accused of Grevious Body Harm is still waiting

for his trial. Other trials also didn't start yet.

1st May actions

In Slupsk about 200 anarchists took part in May Day action and disrupted

speech of parliament member of a "leftist" party SLD. Police tried to push

anarchists out of the place and some scuffles broke out. Later demonstrators

broke through police lines and blocked traffic on the streets, marching

around the city. After a demonstration police was following demonstrators

and filming them. People put some trash containers on the street to block

the way for police car. After some time in empty street dispersing people

got attacked by police. More scuffles erupted, at least two cops were

injured, one police car was hit with a brick. Police detained 8 people, most

probably they will be charged with misdemeanour and one of them is charged

with double assault on police officer, not giving ID to police and violent

resistance. Some local residents also joined action. In Wroclaw group of

anarchists and socialists disrupted speech of SLD members but they were

pushed back by security of the event. In Warsaw over 500 people took part in

Parade of Equality, demonstration for queer rights. In Lodz about 150 people

took part in street party.

New squats and some news about older ones!

There is a new squat in Czestochowa, in old monasteryJ . It is called

"Little Mary". As for now, no more infos about this squat. In Bialystok

"DeCentrum" squat is preparing for some trouble, as city council sold ruins

around the squat and all area will be better for investments. There are also

plans to squat another building soon. Freedom in Wroclaw as for now managed

with all troubles from city council and they are still in control of the

building but no one knows for how long and their situation is still


Solidarity actions with occupied Palestine

In Wroclaw, Warsaw, Poznan and Lodz there were anarchist solidarity actions

with Palestinians. All the time it was clearly stated that both Arafat and

Sharon are murderers. In Lodz there was also program in anarchist radio

about problems of Palestinians. In Wroclaw nazis tried to join a

demonstration but after short scuffle they were forced to go away.

Women's Day Celebrations

There was an action in Warsaw as a celebration of Women's Day. About 400

participants took part in march demanding equal rights for women,

availability of abortion and against domestic violence. There was also

strong anarcho-feminist presence.

In Bialystok squatters organised a street theatre in the centre of the city,

gave leaflets and put banners with feminists slogans etc.

Anti-police action in Bialystok

About 30 people from Bialystok participated in action against police to

protest against rape committed by two cops on a woman in a police car and

decision of the court which stated that it wasn't a rape because she didn't

resist. Main slogan for the action was "Uniform protects rapist". Action

took part in front of police and secret service HQ. As organisers forgot to

invite media, cops saw it as a chance to stop the action. They detained 15

people, saying that protest is illegal. After 2 hours all were released

without charges but police confiscated some banners and leaflets.

Chechnyan refugees actions

In Warsaw, Bialystok and Lublin Chechnyan refugees made for few days hunger

strikes and they also handed out petition to Polish authorities and media

protesting conditions they are kept in. Also now Polish authorities decided

that war in Chechnya is over and they can be sent home and they are not in

danger anymore. Of course this is bullshit as war in this area is still on

and people die there on daily basis. Most of the media ignored those

protests, although surprisingly most pro European Union paper covered action

widely. This is first sign that we have problem of refugees and state racism

too and that Polish state is becoming part of Fortress Europa- this

treatment of refugees is linked directly to fact that Polish government

tries to enter EU.

Start of Anti-EU actions

In Warsaw on 11th of May group of about 30 anarchists joined so called

Schumann's Parade- parody of public support for EU organised by government

to show that all citizens are happy with this idea. Anarchist mocked idea of

the parade, had banners which were pretending to be pro-EU but in fact were

making very bad impression about this shitty institution. For some time

organisers of this shitty spectacle didn't even realise that they were

manipulated and that anarchists managed to sneak into a march. Action ended

with no arrests. There are plans for more anti-EU action in various cities

as government started huge propaganda campaign now.
