One of the Nazis who participated in the killing of Björn Söderberg was Hampus Hellekant, notorious in surveying leftist activists, journalists and others that he perceived as his opponents. Since his release from prison he has changed his name and, according to himself also his politics. But, as the Research Group reveals in this weeks’ issue of Arbetaren, he has never stopped his activities, he has never stopped his monitoring.
A documentary on Channel 4 television tonight - The Enemy Within - made spurious connections between anarchist ideas and Islamic extremism, comparing the 7/7 London bombings with the activities of a minority of the ‘propaganda by deed’ anarchists, the type who threw bombs into cafés and crowds in the late-nineteenth century.
Various anti-authoritarian and critical leftist groups and individuals in Venezuela converged in the Insurgentes social centre to prepare the following statement on the exhumation of victims of the Caracazo in Venezuela
After 19 years the Venezuelan government, through the Attorney General's Office, has exhumed remains from the mass grave at La Peste in the Southern General Cemetery in Caracas for a second time, where some of the victims of the Caracazo, which happened during the 27th and 28th February 1989, are buried. Thus, the Venezuelan state complies with a ruling of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights which in November 1999 ruled to investigate the facts, to punish those responsible and to locate, exhume and identify the remains of the victims so that they could be delivered to their families, as well as to compensate those families for the violation of their relatives’ right to life.
