At the PGA-conference in Dijon a need for a non-digital communication-tool was mentioned. There was an idea to refresh a printed newsletter. We would like to continue the project with this call. Our aim is to continue using this newsletter as forum of debates, different project, actions and struggles of collectives, related to PGA. The newsletter does not speak in the name of the network, but is inspired by PGA.

"Autoflagela-mi-ai" - The Romanian Gendarmerie have crossed the senseless line PDF Print E-mail
Written by Church Lies   
Thursday, 10 April 2008

 Romanian Gendarmerie contends that anti-NATO anarchists that came out foundering from the police station have "tormented themselves", bumping against the walls.

 

 

The representatives of the Romanian Gendarmerie have crossed the senseless line when they claimed that the striplings that came out of the police stations with black eyes and with their faces hurt have "tormented themselves".

"This is the one that has been the most riotous, this moldavian guy who accuses. There are also other stuff, if i may use a pretentious term, it's called self-tormenting. These guys have started bumping against the walls and screaming "Ouch! He's hitting me." But they weren't hit. We picked the men that were starting to make a scandal from the group and we imobilized them quickly, so that they don't spread and so that the others don't start also. And the other started screaming as if they were hit, to mislead to a hectic state. That's when we started to be ferm and to get those out.", Marius Militaru said. Of course, there is no proof that sustains the explanations of the Gendarmerie.

Democracy? a mistery for the Vice president of PNL (a romanian political party) PDF Print E-mail

Sunday, 06 April 2008

According to the Romanian Local Media 

 

"Hasotti about the case of the anarchists:  An eventual injustice is better than tolerating a total mess

 

 

 The vicepresident of PNL , Puiu Hasotti , believes that  the intervention of the police  on the group of  anti –NATO  militants  from Timpuri Noi hall is oportune , stating that “An eventual injustice is better than tolerating a total mess”

The liberal chief said in a press  conference that took place on Thursday in Constanta , that the men of law interfered promptly  and prevented  some eventual problems that could have appeared during the Nato summit in Bucharest.

“The intervention of the police was a response to the  request of the owner, who had been agressed . We have a great  responsibility. And maybe, sometimes, in very special cases, it would be better to make an eventual injustice  then permitting an obvious disorder “ , declared Puiu Hasotti.

He also commented upon the request of PSD who wanted the secretary of state , Cristian David ,to apologise to the young people who were agressed by the forces of opression.

“In the first place, PSD should apologise for the “mineriade” which have thrown Romania 20 years behind and then to request  such demands  that have no connection with reality” explained the vicepresident of PNL.

Finally, he wanted to specify that the point of view reffering to the intervention on the anarchists is a  personal one , and has no connection with the party itself.

 Not far from the centre of Bucharest, near the Timpuri Noi factory, a group of young people rented a space, but following some misunderstandings with the director of the space, they were forcefully thrown out.

 

Several policemen that came to verify them have found out that these young people were planning to protest against Nato.

One of the people that observed this incident is a woman. She lives near the rented space.

            “They took some young people that were inside. That’s all I saw. Nothing else. They threw them  inside their two police vans and left. I can’t tell you anything else”, says a nearby witness.

 

But one of these young people, Rares, who did not enter the rented space together with his collegues, explained to BBC what they were up to:

            “This space was supposed to be a space for criticizing the war, the Nato politics, and for promoting peace. Inside there were supposed to be talks, some workshops, readings and concerts, as far as I know”, says Rares.

Bucharest Declaration PDF Print E-mail

 The Common Voice from the anarchists and anti-militarists who gathered in Bucharest in April 2008 to protest against the NATO summit.

As long as there will be war, as well as systems and organizations that support militarization, murder, and profit-making from conflicts, there will be always movements protesting against them. Nowadays NATO is the most influential military alliance in the world. That’s why wherever a NATO summit will take place there will be people resisting it. Bucharest is not an exception.

In spite of the media intoxication as well as governmental repressions, which started already months before the summit, hundreds of anti-militarists both, Romanian and international, gathered in the capital city, Bucharest.

The mainstream media bombarded the Romanian population with an image of the anti-militaristic activists as careless, terrorists, hooligans and enemies of the common Romanian people, who were only coming to destroy the city. This was all absurd and obviously fabricated as most of the mass media never even bothered to try and find any information from the anti-militarist side.

Massive Repression during the NATO Summit in Romania PDF Print E-mail
Written by Church Lies   
Friday, 04 April 2008

 One day before the start of the Nato summit in Bucharest the situation gets worse. Hourly alternative looking people are detained by the police for no reason. Afterwards the police construct absurd offence, for example carrying a pocketknife amounting to possession a weapon. Every person coming to or leaving the convergence center is in danger of getting detained (some simply for walking to a nearby shop). The detained are interrogated, photographed and fingerprinted in police stations, and held for up to 24 hours. At the Romanian border several groups of activists, as well as others, have been denied entry into the country. The most involved Romanian activists around the country have at this point been visited or called by either the local police or SRI (Romanian information service) to be warned against participating in any anti-nato protests or to have their families intimidated.
