Responsibility claim for Molotov attack against anti-riot squad in Exarchia (Athens, Greece)

Monday, July 21st, 2014

via contra-info:

In the early hours of Sunday, July 20th, we attacked the bastards of the MAT anti-riot squad with Molotov cocktails at the headquarters of Greece’s socialist PASOK co-ruling party located in Charilaou Trikoupi Street, Exarchia, as a minimum act of solidarity with urban guerrilla fighter Nikos Maziotis…

The States are the only terrorists. Solidarity with urban guerrilla fighters!

Strength and solidarity to anarchist combatant Nikos Maziotis, and Pola Roupa who has a bounty on her head.

‘Nihilist Sect of Free Death’ takes responsibility for several unknown incendiary attacks in Rome and issues opening statement (Italy)

Saturday, July 19th, 2014

We receive and transmit with the following editorial note:

With regard to “warning signals” or “phone calls” prior to explosive attacks, this is part of the tradition of many countries’ urban guerrilla groups, and it aims to prevent unnecessary loss of life and injuries. Many of these radical groups don’t need to issue warnings for their attacks, as they are carried out with a different set of operating parameters – often targeting property in such a way that unintended harm does not result to humans or non-human animals. There is also security, logistical, technical and repressive factors, but generally speaking, the nihilist, anarchist and anti-civilisation tendencies are separated from authoritarianism, conservatism and fascism by this regard, by the priority placed on rejecting any attack which has as a result indiscriminate loss of life and mass injuries for the base population. We presume these parameters are the “encrypted codes” which the Nihilist Sect of Free Death refers to in the communique below.
-

THE NIHILIST SECT OF FREE DEATH: OPENING UP AND CLAIMING OF INCENDIARY ATTACKS

“I teach you the Overman! He is that sea; in him your great contempt can go under.”

The Nihilist Sect of Free Death is based on the precise points of a project and experiment:

– The attack on society and its values, such as morality, ethics, equality, democracy, legality, law, etc.

– The rejection of all legal and juridical issues.

– The Nihilist Sect of Free Death is unique, and denies any pact of federation or association with other groups, even if they had “affinity” with the project.

– The Nihilist Sect of Free Death doesn’t make recourse to warning signals or “phone calls”, but any Attack carried out successfully or only attempted, will go under specific encrypted codes in order to avoid “confusion” as for all the judicial ethical body of society and everybody else who want to use it for their own “purposes”.

- Against so-called “heterogeneous” or generalized solidarity, which is bound to affect the specificity of the project.

– The Nihilist Sect of Free Death’s “own” claim in specific cases, such as the case where an individual who’s not part of the pact of association is indirectly involved in it under the form of imprisonment..

The die is cast…

PS: To begin the experiment, various incendiary attacks were successfully carried out against mobile objects in the mess of the metropolis called “Rome”.

Berlin: Vehicle owned by the Greek consul torched by ‘Subversives of the nihilist deed’ (Germany)

Sunday, July 6th, 2014

via contra-info:

We demand nothing less than the destruction of the beast that keeps the system running.

The ruling democrats strike back with full force. Amid the crisis, they reveal their true face. A face full of enthusiasm, which humiliates, tortures, incarcerates or murders people; a face which smiles happily at the cameras of the world, while thousands of cops break up any resistance with bludgeon and tear gas just around the corner.

However they’re not yet pleased with that. Having managed to break up the resistance in the streets, the dogs of the system have now devoted themselves to crushing every resistance that still exists in prisons, through the total isolation of the prisoners. The domination uses the current intimidation of the great silent majority to take revenge on those who littered Greece in December 2008 with a conflagration. Arising from the revolt, guerrilla groups made the stiff gentlemen in Brussels gasp. (more…)

Multiple claims for new urban guerrilla actions by Network Revolutionary Cells (Czech Republic)

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

325 receives and transmits several communiques:

Communique for the attack of a police car in Prague

In Prague on Feb 13th 2014, a Molotov attack on a police car took place on Hostivařská street. The attack was claimed by the Black Brigade, an autonomous network of revolutionary cells. The blow struck the defender of the capitalist system and was an act of solidarity with victims of police repression, in this case those who were evicted from Neklanka squat on 7th February 2014 and for those who stand trial after being arrested during the eviction for defending the squat.

Unsurprisingly, we waited a long time for our enemies response, as was the case of an attack on a police car in Janov, an event only briefly mentioned in the Comprehensive situational report by the Ministry of Internal Affairs. We do not expect that the message of our actions will be spread by the enemy, and the fact that the event is almost silent does not mean that the content of the actions ceased to exist. We have our own channels and we intend to use them to explain our actions. (more…)

FAI/ELF claim four vehicle fires in Bristol (UK)

Monday, June 30th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

Just before sunrise this morning we launched a targeted arson spree along Glebe Road — which meets the main east Bristol thoroughfare of Church Road — and burned out corporate, luxury, private security and hunt-scum vehicles. Wildfire in the arteries of the city-prison! To break the lie of social peace and intensify the hostilities!

Emergency services were too slow to catch the responsible as the empty street was brightened from end to end as by torches. In a few words, the selected vans and cars were active components of the life they represent and also enforce.

Virgin Media supply television and also internet, and a national fibre optic cable network. To keep us enmeshed in the modern information economy and the spectacle of celebrities, video games and advertising is their business. Destroy what domesticates and stupefies us! (more…)

Solidarity demo in Zurich for anti-FIFA & hungerstrikers in Greek prisons (Switzerland)

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

The street sign of „FIFA-Strasse“, which was disassembled at the
manifestation at 14 June in front of the head office of FIFA in Zurich, was passed us on today.

In solidarity with all struggles against and around the World Cup in Brasil we fight against the capitalistic exploitation of football through FIFA and the other exponents of capital.

In Greece the capital punishment is now called Prison Type C.
“We fight and resist for our dignity”, wrote the fighting prisoners, which are in hunger strike since monday, 23.06.2014.
Our solidarity shall also be a weapon in this struggle!

International solidarity is our arme!

Phoenix Project #14: ‘Live Wires FAI/ELF’ take responsibility for 4 Arsons against Bristol’s cellular transmission infrastructure over 24 Hours (UK)

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

325 receives and transmits this communique released on the June 11th International Day of Solidarity for Marie Mason, Eric McDavid and all long-term anarchist prisoners:

[Phoenix Project]

Around Bristol between June 9th-10th, we left 7 mobile phone antennae in flames. Daily continuation of capitalist society is dependent on uninterrupted flows (of goods, people, data, and energy) and the communications grid is no exception. The limited uses most of us can make from these flows only mask the way they are mainly used to oversee and impose the dominant order, and increase its’ reach and control.

You need only look to how the values of connectivity, speed, and mobility that are embodied in a mobile phone (for example) facilitate a relentless consumer culture and the requirement to be available and flexible at all times: as much for the benefit of the boss and the advertiser as for your family or friends. This is fully consistent with the modern restructuring and decentralisation of the gigantic productive system which this society subjects us to. Hindering all this was our objective.

2 antennae went up simultaneously, in Hambrook and outside Ram Hill business park in Coalpit Heath, both owned by O2. This is also not the first time O2 have been singled out for damage acts because of the contracts they hold in the migrant detention industry, with cops, and tagging for the probation service. Some hours later a 3rd O2 antenna went up in Coombe Dingle, at the same time as a 4th fire was lit after gaining access to transmission units connected to the huge BT telecommunication tower in Lockleaze. Signals that will have been affected are those of O2, T-Mobile, Orange and Vodaphone.

These corporations variously are connected to the field of military equipment and armament, use prison labour, and are famous for readily collaborating with electronic policing by the secret services (now that widespread data-surveillance is well known) while not even stopping at financing Oxford university with its’ extensive animal experimentation labs. This has already led to their interests being attacked in Berlin (T-Mobile’s parent company*), Paris (Orange*), and Banbury (Vodaphone*).

For all above reasons it is always good to harm these corporations, structurally and economically, and then there is the issue of the antennae themselves radiating who knows how much harmfulness to nearby species. There were the publicised cases in Bristol even some years ago of a woman in Shirehampton who complained of the affects of an antenna put up on her high rise flatblock and later died from a brain tumor, while an antenna nicknamed The Tower of Doom was withdrawn from Staple Hill after cancer rates soared. Evidence has mounted up that prolonged use of mobile phones damages the immune system, decreases fertility, and causes brain tumors and cancers: especially in the young. We should mention that the antenna we burned in Coombe Dingle is one of three on the grounds of a university sports pitch also marketed for schools, as are many others. Additionally, twisted lab technicians claim to have deduced from experimentation on other mammals (built on torture like so much scientific research) that exposure while still in the womb “significantly damages brain function, structure and behaviour and suggested that these exposures could contribute to children’s behavioural disorders”.

These products were and still are pushed on us as harmless, although nearly every study that claims this was funded by the industry itself, when we had no idea of the long term affects, similarly to the marketing of asbestos or smoking before they began to show their deadly toll (to use only 2 better known examples among thousands). These days even researchers at Bristol university concede the dangers of cellular use. What a surprise….the permanently wired environment turns out to be toxic, while companies make a killing in profits and the government receives billions in taxes and licensing. For most people prolonged contact with mobile phones or wireless networks in general seems unavoidable, for work or to avoid social marginalisation, in the street, on public transport, or at home: we are soaking in one more accumulative barrage in a poisonous, anti-human and anti-life civilisation that grows by the day.

A recurring feature of the estrangement that technologies such as mobile phones actually cultivate between individuals, is how many addicted to their constant use now prefer to text message or to “tweet” to avoid the prospect of real life contact, and how many only feel safe communicating from behind a device. It is now completely standard for people to spend the majority of their waking hours interfacing with one screen or another. Up and coming inventions such as Google Glass attempt to make this enclosure near total (although also dependent in part on uninterrupted transmission infrastructure). As a society that lives through highly complex technologies, we no longer fully inhabit our bodies and environment but instead some part of the techno-hive: and it is no longer only nerds and the young who practically call this virtual reality their home. As the sphere dominated by information technology expands, what is considered socially of importance in our actual lives shrinks to what can be conveyed and received by the device, and so narrowing human emotion and experience. Or think about the obsessive urge to treat modern life as something less to be lived than to be documented in each detail for passive consumption on the “social” networks, as another example of colonisation by capitalism and its’ technology.

Planning and carrying out your existence digitally also allows the possibilities of unprecedented surveillance, and it hinders active rebellion or even questioning of the dominant order by flagging up “abnormalities” in what you often voluntarily share with your friends or “Friends.” At the same time, concerted exploitation of the base populations around the world and ecological pillage to the point of collapse continues to fatten the same rich parasites’ pockets, and technological immersion helps people neither relate nor care. On the contrary millions now hunger for their part in the way of life that is killing everything.

With an anarchist perspective in search of free and fulfilling existence, we fight to do away with all technologies born from the toxification and slavery of mines, factories, and industrial infrastructures, and for our daily communication to be as unmediated as possible. Taking down these few nodes was not enough for us, it is not a case of simply abandoning the uses of a particular device alone, but it is erasing the whole social system which first trapped us in its’ “necessity” which is the challenge. We found antennae an easy way to start: it is simply a matter of burning tires between the exposed cables and away you go. In North Lanarkshire, Scottish villagers even felled one. By reflecting on radical and anti-industrial history in Britain (such as the Swing and Luddite insurrections), as well as contemporary anarchist guerrilla praxis, we can see the advantage of low-tech, cheap, and easily reproducible tactics to wreck machinery that encloses and impoverishes us, on an even more intimate level presently than ever before. These ubiquitous (and highly expensive) structures are spread around every town or city and further industrialising the countryside, where they are sometimes painted green in the attempt to camouflage them: and disgustingly even have bird and bat nesting boxes mounted on some. Their guardians cannot always be watching them all so it is up to our ingenuity to remain a step ahead and stretch their forces thin. This and every network has its’ weak points, in these cracks in the architecture of control that afford us leverage: a destructive capacity we are appropriating. As the promises of hyper-technified modern culture continue to show their shallowness, rebels will carry on acting against the noxious installations and the way of life they feed.

“….Resistance against the Technological-Industrial Machine lives only through the path of liberation from every power and order, runs towards an event horizon where nothing has been written yet.”
– Letter from Gianluca Iacovacci, from C.R. San Michele prison

Our attack is not separate from overall anarchist subversion by all means, which naturally includes solidarity with our prisoners in enemy hands. A wild greeting from Bristol to Adriano Antonacci, no less than to his friend and comrade Gianluca (FAI/IRF Subversive Anti-Civilisation Individualities) whose brave lone acts in Rome he is also accused of. Hello to the new anarchist and anti-colonial groups in Hong Kong and Australia, and solidarity to the Paris ten accused of sabotaging prison profiteers.

Our attack came at a time when the networks are already set to be overloaded by the World Cup hysteria, to show our complicity with the insurgent fighters in Brazil as they answer massive dispossession and militarised slum clearances for the opulence of the games with street battles and arson. Because it should be remembered that the enthralling spectacle, that is staged to make the rich yet more money and to distract us from our daily humiliations, is based on the State and Capital’s violence against resisters, the indigenous, and the poorest in Brazilian society.

Let’s not forget Marie Mason and Eric McDavid: both are still behind bars after State repression and entrapment which followed an early string of Earth Liberation Front strikes in the USA. Years later the earth liberation struggle is not defeated either in spirit or in practice. The fight goes on with fur farms raided and emptied across North America, and our incendiary-minded sisters or brothers prowling the besieged Turkish forests, the streets of the Costa Rican metropolis, or the techno-industrial developments in Switzerland (on the last note: a quick reminder that the continuing legal threats against the released anarchists Silvia, Costas and Billy, and also the latest vindictive treatment of Marco Camenisch around his prison transfer, have not gone unnoticed by the international fire-starters).

Down with the society based on dominating earth and all its’ creatures.

Live Wires FAI/ELF

İstanbul: ATM burned by FAI-IRF / Nihilist Cell (Turkey)

Friday, May 30th, 2014

On May 29, at about 11 PM, we burned down an ATM branch of Yapi Kredi Bank in
Kadikoy, Istanbul. This act is to be a reminder that without bringing damage to the system and its institutions there can be no real talk of freedom. Those who seek to disrupt the power relations that shape all the aspects of our daily life can only do so by permanent attack.

We call everyone who is fed up with the tyranny of the forces of establishment to sabotage the oppression-and-injustice-yielding state apparatus and the finance organizations that pull its strings, and thereby to reverse the ordinary flow of life.

This act is dedicated to Berkin Elvan and Uğur Kurt who has been murdered by the police.

SABOTAGE, DAMAGE, DESTRUCTION!

FAI-IRF/ NIHILIST CELL

29 Mayıs Perşembe gecesi, saat:23.00 sularında, Kadıköy Moda Caddesi’nde bulunan Yapı Kredi Bankası’na ait bankamatik şubesini molotoflayarak tahrip ettik. Bu eylemi, sisteme ve sistemin kurumlarına zarar vermeden özgürlükten bahsedilemeyeceğini bir kez daha hatırlatmak için yaptık. Gündelik hayatın tamamına nüfuz eden güç ilişkilerini parçalamak isteyenler, bunu ancak kesintisiz biçimde saldırarak başarabilirler.

Düzen güçlerinin zorbalığından rahatsız olan herkesi, zulüm ve adaletsizlik üreten devlet aygıtını ve onun iplerini elinde tutan finans kurumlarını sabote ederek hayatın akışını tersine çevirmeye davet ediyoruz. Unutmayın; saldırmadığımız sürece yaşayan ölülerden bir farkımız yok.

Eylemimizi polis tarafından katledilen Berkin Elvan’a ve Uğur Kurt’a adıyoruz.

Incendiary attack at Yate Magistrates Court on 22nd May in memory of Maurico Morales by FAI – Conscience & Fury (UK)

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Communique censored by the pacifist-judiciary of Indymedia UK:

RESPONSIBILITY CLAIM – SOLIDARITY KNOWS NO LAW

We firebombed the courthouse in central Yate, on 22nd May. 10 camping gas canisters were enough to devastate the front lobby, with a homemade napalm mixture as the detonator. We chose the early hours to avoid any injuries. Social war doesn’t sleep: at any given time, irrepressibles somewhere are awake and angry, raging against impositions of the governing system which wants us as its cogs. That night it happened to be us.

New and bigger custody centers; more restrictive laws, injunctions and “anti-social behavior” legislation; legal aid reduced to entrap the poor; phonelines for snitching; different shades of cops embedding themselves throughout the layers of society; probation schemes to reinsert convicts into the world of wage-slavery and consumerism; a whole prison-world of concrete cities and surveilled data-streams overseen by the powerful, armed with CCTV, biometrics and electronic tagging to defend their wealth and social order…

And also carrying out this authoritarian disciplining of the individual, are the courts. Enforcers of human misery, shamelessly applying laws drawn up by the upper classes, politicians and business leaders. Stamping down to subdue people who are mostly trying to find means of survival while capitalism pits all against all.

The justice system tries to pass itself off as the only protection from the very same desperation and imbalances that civilized society creates. Its real function is and has always been to protect and sanctify property and privilege above all: and to usurp free communities or individuals capacity for autonomy, retaliation or reconciliation.

Phoenix Project #13: Conspiracy of Black Fire – FAI/IRF claim two acts of sabotage (Italy)

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

[Previous acts]

Phoenix project #13 – 07/05/2014

We gave life to the Conspiracy of Black Fire with an attack carried out on 7th May 2014, two years after our anarchist comrades and brothers Nicola Gai and Alfredo Cospito shot Ansaldo Nucleare managing director Roberto Adinolfi. Our actions are dedicated to them, with love and revenge.

In the night of 7th May we placed an incendiary device on a petrol pump. Due to our inexperience the device didn’t accomplish its task of destruction through fire, but we were armed with pliers and cut off all the fuel dispensing tubes. Just a month earlier we targeted some ATMs.

We spent a great deal of time pondering on the question of informality and the possibility of giving birth to a group of action. During our discussion, among laughter and seriousness, lively debates, desires and anxiety, projects and strategies, we decided to give birth to the Conspiracy of Black Fire and wage war to the mega-machine of dominion.

Sydney : 3 Luxury Cars Torched By FAI/IRF (Australia)

Monday, May 19th, 2014

In the early hours of Sunday, May 18 we went for a walk through the streets of the predominantly rich Sydney neighborhood of Woolahra looking for suitable targets for us to express our rage upon.

It didn’t take long for us to find what we were looking for!

We set fire to 3 luxury cars – a BMW and a Nissan X-Trail on Queen St and a Lexus on Moncur St.

We left the scene quickly as the flames of rebellion lit up the early morning sky.

We dedicate this action to our comrades from the Fire Wolves Cell & also the
Felicity Ann Ryder Cell in Melbourne, to all FAI / IRF fighters everywhere & to all imprisoned anarchist & insurrectionist fighters fighting for dignity behind the walls of injustice everywhere!

For The Total Destruction Of All Existence!

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

This is to claim responsibility for the complete destruction by fire of three colonial structures at the so-called Royal Botanical Gardens in South Yarra, Melbourne in the small hours of May 16.

We put these filthy monuments of colonial oppression to the torch in the name of indigenous & anti-colonial resistance both here in Australia & in all other parts of the world & to spit in the faces of all those who seek to tame what is wild into sterile botanical prisons.

We also send greetings of fire & smoke to imprisoned resistance fighters everywhere!

Phoenix Project #12 : ICR – FAI/IRF take responsibility for arson barrage in solidarity with Adriano Antonacci, Gianluca Iacovacci, other worldwide anarchist prisoners and the combative memory of Sebastian O. Seguel (Indonesia)

Friday, May 16th, 2014

Phoenix Project #12 [previous acts here.]

“Our words, carve today like a blade and our actions burn the bridges with yesterday… With tenacity and will, until we murder authority.”

- Conspiracy of Cells of Fire: Prisoners Cell, Andreas Tsavdaridis and Sypros Mandylas, (Letter to Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai)

The declarations of war against authority won’t stop with one single action nor one single letter of publication. It is a totality of our lives, each one of us, who stands here as egoists under the name of International Conspiracy for Revenge (ICR) as part of the Informal Anarchist Federation/International Revolutionary Front. We won’t step back, even if we are isolated or deserted by the other “revolutionary anarchists” who devoted themselves to the dreams of society, those who let their own values as anarchists be imposed wholly by reformism, negotiation and conformity. We are out of their league and we won’t play their game. We have our own, one of violence and direct action. With nihilist comradeship through fire and fists to our comrades locked behind bars everywhere, in Europe, in South America and Mexico. Our comradeship also goes to those anonymous comrades who went underground to carry on a constant confrontation with Power.

Recent Situation Concerning the General Election in Indonesia

Since the first New Year fireworks started, all forms of oppression revelled in the curiosity and impatience before the general election (both the parliamentary election and the presidential election). We saw how the oppressors and the oppressed were walking hand-in-hand to celebrate what they call: The time of new hope for a better change. They printed the faces of those who are running for parliament and others are debating what should they do to contribute to make democracy better than they have it nowadays. Mass and social media all filled with empty words and the camouflage of how the general election will bring the oppressed to gain their freedom. And that is definitely right, because Indonesians will have the chance to choose who will be their oppressors for the next five years.

We are not even surprised when we found out that those who claimed themselves as anti-authoritarians were also merely trapped into the logic of giving your voice during an election or abstaining.

They producing memes, producing posters, shouting it out, organizing people, just not to vote. To say no to voting boxes, to say no to the parliaments candidates; they say no to the parties, they say no to every infrastructure of the voting system, but forget one important thing. To say no to the boundaries that kept them away from real freedom. They wish a different result by trying the similar way as used by Power. And how it can lead you to freedom? A question that doesn’t need an answer, since it is useless to question the choices of these people.

Anarchism is dead. And these people are the ones who proudly carry the coffin of their so-called ideology: Anarchism. An ideology of the weak and cowardly who called us “obsessed with violence” to cover up their fear. They are afraid to arm themselves and walk alone into battle, a long battle without end or goal.

And how different are we from these mobs?
We performed our disagreement with both those mobs by burning down two offices of the general election committee located in Donggala, Central Sulawesi on 16th April. We won’t stay away and let our enemy play around with their party of democracy. We directly sent our anger and transformed it into fire. We are not abstaining in this war. We attack.

We are not those anarchists who went to voting spots and painted slogans and chants on the ballot boxes. We won’t smear our values by letting our finger be painted with purple ink, a sign used by the authorities to identify who voted and those who did not. We won’t let one single inch in our body be polluted by our enemy. On the contrary, we attacked them without compromise.

On another chance, we sabotaged two cars (28th April) which were planned to transfer the ballots from South East Minahasa district to the capital city of province, Manado. We hit them not only to cause delay, but for our further action, which we cancelled because of an intervention by some “good citizens”. Next time, we will hit those who prevent us from our actions. With violence, of course.

Abstaining by not giving our voices is not enough for us. We want to bring this confrontation to be more wild than mere words or posters. We want to speak through fire, as we mentioned in one of our communiques before. But we don’t invite anyone to join us. We are not interested to have new members. We are not a party nor an anarchist collective. We are an armed group of the tendency of violence. To attack, and not to open a dialogue with our enemies.

Solidarity and Fire

During our campaign, we targeted some important spots which were never targeted before. We are expanding our targets by adding some more variety to them. On 19th April, for example, we burnt down the branch of the national electric office in Madiun, East Java. This action is part of our campaign to hit the vital spots of the enemy. By causing as much damage as we can. Causing terror as wide as we can. We set the fire early morning 3.00am, and let the flames do the rest. Awakening people in the morning with fire is our way to show our sarcasm to the workers who need to get up in the early morning for eight hours of slavery.

We chose this target as our way to send a message to Adriano Antonacci and Gianluca Iacovacci. Both are Italian comrades arrested and accused for several actions claimed by Anti-Civilization Subversive Individualities FAI/IRF. And our fire is specifically dedicated to two of them, to share our thoughts and dreams, our values and solidarity and to let both of them know that they are in our hearts. We will never forget comrades who are captured by the enemy.
And revenge is the only way to reply to this repression.

We continued our campaign by putting a similar incendiary device in the national electric company located in Semarang, Central Java, in early morning 23rd April, which failed to ignite. In fact, we swarmed over the security guard that came by when we were sneaking into the office. He is lucky we decided to let him down and not put an end to his life.

It’s not a mercy from us, but merely a warning that we are not playground kids who are playing around with fire. If one steps before our path, we won’t regret to help you to meet your end. All snoopers or wannabe good-citizens are part of the enemy for us. And please take it serious and do not say that we never warned you beforehand.

In the early part of this month, we continued our campaign by attacking another three power plants in three different places. One in Ternate (5th May), North Maluku and another two in Ambon (8th May), Maluku. We would like the enemy to know that all the regions are not safe and we will attack more and more next time.

All these actions are dedicated to our beloved comrades, Conspiracy of Cells of Fire; Prisoners Cell, Andreas Tsavdaridis – Spyros Mandylas, Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Marco Camenisch, Monica Caballero, Fransisco Solar, Tamara Sol Vergara, Fredy Fuentevilla – Marcelo Villarroel – Juan Aliste Vega, Hans Niemeyer, Alvonso Alvial – Hermez Gonzales, Alfredo Cospito – Nicola Gai, Giannis Mihailidis, Grigoris Sarafoudis, Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, Alexandros Mitrousias, Dimitris Politis, Fivos Harisis, Tasos Theofilou, Argiris Dalios, Giorgos Karagiannidis, Babis Tsilianidis, Giannis Naxakis, Nikos Romanos.

And to remember our brother, Sebastian O. Seguel, who fell in the battle against the enemy in Chile. These acts of revenge are for you, brother.

Through these actions, we want to re-call our comrades of FAI-IRF to once again strike and re-launch the Phoenix Project. This time, harder than before. We want to call all active cells of FAI/IRF to once again go to reinforce the war, this time until the end.

Signs Of Life In Australia : A Chronology of Recent Anarchist & Anti-Colonial Activity Down Under

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

*Note : this is an edited version of a post that appeared on an Australian underground electronic music blog, we thought it was of interest to the wider anarchist-insurrectionist community worldwide.

Things are heating up in this country with one of the most unpopular governments in Australian history now in charge – although they came to power with a landslide victory so go figure! ‘Austerity’ is the name of the game for Australia’s current batch of ultra-conservative crypto-corporate overlords which means increases in the cost of living & cuts to every social service you can think of along with the customary scapegoating of immigrants, the indigenous & other vulnerable members of society – unless you are rich and connected then you and your hard earned finances are in the firing line, and let’s not forget the absolute rape of Australia’s resources & natural environment that has gone into overdrive since these bastards took power and the arse-kissing of corporate & foreign powers as they continue to loot the continent.

Stop NATO : Anarchists shut down Barclays Bank in Cardiff (Wales, UK)

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

As part of our coverage of anti-NATO events this year in UK, we reproduce this report:

The campaigners formed a Radical Bloc on the Trades Council-organised May Day march, breaking from the main route to take action against the bank instead of going to listen to speeches by union officials at the Trades Council’s rally.

A local anarchist and member of the Stop NATO Cymru campaign group said: “We took part in the May Day march to draw attention to the struggles of workers all over the world against exploitation and violent oppression which is exacerbated by arms producers here in the UK. (more…)

29/04/2014 – Phocis: Parcel bomb sent to the police precinct of Itea (Greece)

Saturday, May 3rd, 2014

Inter Arma received and translated:

THE MIDNIGHT EXPRESS

i. Journey of Death: Malandrino Prisons – Itea’s Police Precinct

The Conspiracy of Cells of Fire claims responsibility for sending a book trapped with explosives to the police precinct of Itea.

Itea’s police precinct, which we chose to strike, is not just an enemy military base. It’s the place where prisoner Ilia Kareli was beaten and tortured, before he was delivered to his last executioners, at Nigrita prisons.

What happened in the penitentiary of the police precinct of Itea, was intentionally concealed. The prison guards of Nigrita prison insisted that they received the prisoner in very bad shape, before they paint their own hands with blood. But an executioner cannot incriminate another one. For this, irrefutable witness remains always the life itself and its miserable print at the basement of police detention facilities. There, in the concrete tombs, where human shadows are stacked upon one another for days, weeks, months…

People who are forgotten by daylight, as their sun is the yellow bulb on the ceiling, that never goes out. They are only remembered by the cells’ moldy walls, that are buried within the blood, despair and groans from the beatings of the uniformed pigs.

If these walls had a voice, the ugliness would be ashamed of itself. But you don’t narrate ugliness, you strike it. As a slogan in the streets says “Action replaces tears”. For this, we decided once again to act and hit the enemy in his face, in his own base.

ii. …Last stop Nigrita prisons…

In Nigrita prisons, in Serres, the “welcoming committee” of prison guards was waiting for its victim. A herd of hyenas ready to finish off the work of the previous tormentors. Cowardly and sadistic executioners picked their prey chained and for three-four hours taught him the correctional method and legal culture to his death. Of course, after Kareli’s assassination and the arrest of the prison guards, they started to snitch on each other and pretended to having regret.

We know that especially in the provincial closed prisons, several prison guards not only are they not ashamed of their job, but they behave like little tyrants instead, speaking derogatory to the prisoners and humiliating or even beating them. It seems that they act with the assurance of immunity, provided by the fact that they live away from the metropolis so they will probably think of themselves to be untouchable by the armed hand of the urban guerrillas. But this miserable tribe of shepherds and drunkards is quite wrong. The enemy always has a name and address, wherever he is hiding.

iii. International route: Stammheim – Guantanamo – Domokos

After the escape of urban guerilla Christodoulos Ksiros, the former commander – minister of Justice, and now puppet of Dendias, proceeded to announce the operation of a maximum security prison in Domokos.

Shortly after it, the proposal for a new bill regarding special detention conditions of type C was announced to be applied to most of closed prisons.

A guillotine-law for the political prisoners, the accused for the so called “organized crime” – 60% of prisoners is accused for “organized crime/criminal organization”- and the recalcitrant prisoners.

No one, of course, wondered how the whole bill does not even include a paragraph regarding construction-building changes that would confirm the title it’s been given, i.e. a bill for “maximum security prisons”. That occurs because maximum security prisons have been a reality for years in Greece.

All new closed type prisons of the last years are modern cement graves made of concrete and railings, built in the middle of nowhere. Even the sky is hidden by barbed mesh, while cameras watch every move of the prisoners.

The reality therefore belies the rhetoric of the authorities. This is not high-security prisons, but ones of utmost punishment. All the arrangements proposed by the subservient of Dendias have to do with the operation of a new prison inside the existing one, without the right to take a leave, without visiting, without communication with the outside world. This is a total deletion of prisoners meant to be disposed there. This is a deletion of senses and consciousness. This is an old trick of authority. A careful psychiatric/scientific version of retribution/revenge of democracy against those who dare to challenge it. The white cells of Stammheim, where the urban guerillas of RAF were murdered in West Germany, are ancestors of Domokos. Guantanamo is the embodiment of the American model. Loss of senses, communication, consciousness. A death sentence in replay.

Meanwhile, the “construction” of high security prisons prefigures the construction of a paramount prison society. Whatever is being experimentally implemented on prisoners today – the guinea pigs of scientists of law and order- will tomorrow be tested in the social machine. Since most of the economical illusions tend to recede increasingly because of the crisis, what will emerge is the zero tolerance and law and order doctrine. It is the passage from the ruins of the social state to the police one.

This moment, however, inside the Greek galleys of democracy, something seems to be moving…

The prisoners – although we do not like generalizations of collective subjects – have been participating in a large mobilization inside the walls, against the bill regarding the C type prisons: Abstinence of common meal, night mobilization, noun time protests etc. Via their mobilization, the prisoners refuse to accept the special conditions of isolation as a condition of life that the state prepares for them. In this struggle they are not alone…

iv. The call

Unfortunately, luck turned its back to us once again. While the package arrived at the heart of the police department’s snake nest [on April 29, 2014], a cop realized the true intentions of the ‘sender’. As a result, the EOD Section was called, in order to neutralize the bomb-book we sent them. This creates a negative legacy for the methodology and practice of parcel-bombs in Greece, as our aim is to be effective and not spend much time in symbolism. From now on, much will change. Soon we will return.

Tracing the paths of attack, we meet in practice with other fighters from completely different origins, who, with their own means, want to derail the route of maximum security prisons design. So, a salute to the fighters of the organization “Zero Tolerance” and consider our action as a small contribution to their own “revolutionary call” they promoted after the arson of Michelaki’s political office.

Of course, we wholeheartedly dedicate this gesture attack of us – which unfortunately remained incomplete – to our ten imprisoned brothers and sister of the prison cell: Panagiotis, Olga, Giorgos, Damianos, Gerasimos, Theofilos, Mihalis, Haris, Giorgos, Christos. We also dedicate it to the member of FAI A. Tsavdaridis and the anarchist comrade S. Mandilas, prosecuted for the “Phoenix Project”.

At the same time, we send our solidarity with all means to the wanted urban guerrilla Christodoulos Ksiros. Christodoulos practiced the phrase “ONCE A GUERILLA, ALWAYS A GUERILLA”… From clandestinity now an assault call. It does not really matter to us that sometimes the words do not match, and often sound so different. We do not belong to pseudo-ideologues drowning in words, without ever having been tested in practice.

The proposal of Ch. Ksiros reveals a crossroad – for those able to see it. An attack crossroad where people from different paths with separate experiences can meet. But we get to talking … From now on we will continue with expressing ourselves through action for the “call.” We also send our solidarity to the political prisoners who have taken responsibility for their participation in armed groups.

Finally, because our compass always remain ‘stuck’ to the orientation of the international conspiracy of the Informal Anarchist Federation , we could not forget to send our fraternal greetings to the two imprisoned comrades of FAI in Italy, Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai, who have taken the responsibility for the shots against senior member of a nuclear company. We also send our insurrectionary solidarity to Gianluca Iacovacci, who has taken responsibility for the FAI actions against targets of power and is held with the anarchist Adriano Antonacci, who is also accused of the same case. The two comrades are imprisoned in different Italian jails and a TV-trial will take place against them without being able to meet. That means that they will be up for through telecommunication while being hundreds of miles away from the court. Their hardest isolation is arranged this way.

At the same time, the official Italian movement is unconcerned with their case and has put them on the sidelines. These are familiar situations, as reformists everywhere, and in Greece, are of the same breed.

Alongside, this – incomplete – action of us is part of our participation in international call for solidarity to the imprisoned Italian comrades, which will take place from 16th to 22nd of May.

We also salute all the imprisoned anarchists of praxis worldwide: Monica Caballero, Francisco Solar, Gabriel Pombo Da Silva and Claudio Lavazza in Spain. Carlos, Amelie and Fallon in Mexico. Tamara Sol, Alfonso Alvial, Hermes Gonzalez and the charged with the «Security Case» [Caso Security] in Chile. Damien Camélio in France, Marco Camenisch in Switzerland and Ilya Romanov in Russia.

Honor to Sebastian Oversluij, who was killed during an armed robbery at a bank in Chile.

EVERYTHING CONTINUES. SOON WE WILL BE BACK….

Berlin: Phoenix Project #11 – Autonomous Cell “Christos Kassimis” takes responsibility for several attacks (Germany)

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

via contrainfo [see previous acts]:

Phoenix Project: Smoke signals from Berlin

“The fire comes into your cities, into your nights. From our spirit within, we carve its path towards all of you. It will warm our friends with solidarity and will ignite their zest for action. It will turn our enemy into ashes. Imprint us well in your memory. We want your heart. No matter who you are. No matter who I am either. Maybe the Conspiracy will turn both of us into ashes and at the same time fill us with life. What counts is the path we are going, and that we take this path because we have the freedom to choose. This freedom is nothing to be fought for but rather evolves in the mind. What comes afterwards is not freedom but the power over one’s own life. We do not discuss this; this is what we fight for.”(CCF)[1]

Responsibility claim for some arsons of the past weeks in Berlin

On April 8th, 2014 we torched a vehicle of the municipal regulatory authority, and the car of a security company, near the main railway station in Berlin.

Berlin’s municipal regulatory authorities are being tasked by the normal cops to persecute administrative offenses and to keep their eyes and ears open in the everyday life of the metropolis. Small, lousy snoopers equipped with radio transmitter and pepper spray. They work, just like the cops, together with private security companies. At the main railway station, they share a parking lot designated for officials with a security firm right next to a police station.

We also take responsibility for the arson at an embassy vehicle belonging to a Greek female diplomat, on April 24th in Berlin’s district Dahlem, which is filled with villas.

Diplomatic representatives of a State are exactly the right address for fiery mailings; this rubs away their feeling of superiority and invulnerability, same as it happened recently with the German ambassador in Athens, when shots were fired at his house. The State itself is the problem, something which many fighters of sectional struggles do not take into consideration. Nazis are State; armament and nuclear technology are State; climate change and poverty are also State.

With our action we negate the State’s monopoly on violence.

Germany takes a position which promotes repression in regard to the situation of migration policies in Greece. It’s not enough for the German politics that a majority of the refugees who arrive in Greece end up in concentration camps and that they are hunted and killed by Nazis, with or without uniform. The German politicians consider the few ones, who manage to cross the Greek border alive, as a threat to their rich white world. So, for example, the former German Minister of the Interior, Friedrich, demands stronger border controls and tougher action against those who, because of their home’s exploitation by Western societies, are forced to escape war, hunger and repression. The practical support of this mass murder that takes place at European borders is visible to everyone when Germany’s detectives of the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) are stationed in Greek airports, in order to pass their knowledge in Racial Profiling on to their Greek colleagues. The German governmental apparatus has supported the murders at European borders not only by sending personnel but also by pressing towards agreements at the European level, such as the Dublin II regulation.

On August 10th, 2013 a riot broke out in Amygdaleza, a concentration camp which is located 25km north of Athens, where migrants are held captive by the Greek State. The prisoners set their mattresses and cells on fire to protest against the conditions in the camp, guards were attacked, and many migrants tried to break out of the prison —about ten prisoners temporarily escaped.

Solidarity to prisoners

We greet the prisoners Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, Dimitris Politis, Yannis Michailidis, Nikos Romanos, who were arrested on February 1st, 2013, accused of double robbery in Velventos, Kozani.

Our solidarity also goes out to Fivos Harisis, Argyris Ntalios, Yannis Naxakis and Grigoris Sarafoudis, who were arrested for the same case[2] in Nea Filadelfeia, Athens.

Force and strength to our brothers and our sister, Damiano Bolano, Haris Hadjimihelakis, Giorgos Polydoros, Panagiotis Argyrou, Theofilos Mavropoulos, Christos Tsakalos, Giorgos Nikolopoulos, Michalis Nikolopoulos and Olga Ekonomidou.[3]

Solidarity to
Tasos Theofilou
Theofilos Mavropoulos
Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar

Freedom for all prisoners!

In memory of Sebastián Oversluij, who fell in battle against the capitalist system. Freedom for Hermes González and Alfonso Alvial. Freedom for Tamara Sol!

Strength, force and courage to all people who are fighting. For all the migrants that set off to break through Fortress Europe. All those who have fallen. All the unnamed. All those who fight the pigs in the streets of Athens.

Against the construct of borders and nations. Against prisons! For freedom! For anarchy!

Autonomous Cell “Christos Kassimis”

Christos Kassimis [member of the Revolutionary People’s Struggle (ELA)] was killed by cops in Athens, during an attempted attack on the German company AEG on the 20th of October 1977. The action was in response to the murder of prisoners [three members of the RAF] in Stammheim.

Translators’ notes: [1] we translated the words from German as best we could, however the exact origin of this quotation is unknown to us; [2] for the case of Velventos, Fivos Harisis and Argyris Ntalios (not all four of them); [3] apparently the name of Gerasimos Tsakalos was inadvertently omitted.
