Ataque incendiario contra cuartel de la Brigada de Homicidio de la Policía de Investigaciones ($hile)

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

[Noticias de la Guerra Social]

El 24 noviembre del 2014, cerca de las 13:30 Hrs distintos encapuchados
cubiertos con overoles blancos avanzan sigilosamente hasta las puertas
de la Brigada de Homicidios de la Policía de Investigaciones, ubicada
en calle Condell a escazas cuadras de la Universidad Academia de
Humanismo Cristiano.

Una vez en los accesos al cuartel, instalan cadenas y candados
bloqueando los accesos, para luego lanzar bombas molotov en su interior
e incendiar un auto particular de un detective que se encontraba en la
entrada de la guarida de investigaciones.
El ataque fue gravado circunstancialmente por una oficina vecina al
lugar del ataque mostrando lo rápido y directo de la arremetida
incendiaria, sin que la policía alcanzara a responder ni abrir las
cadenas y candados. (more…)

Santiago: Artefacto explosivo contra la cárcel de mujeres es movido por un transeúnte ($hile)

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

[Noticias de la Guerra Social]

A las 7:10 AM, un obrero encuentra un bolso en buen estado a un costado
de la Carcel de Mujeres y la Direccion metropolitana de Gendarmeria,
decide llevárselo a la construcción donde se dirigía para trabajar.

Una vez en la obra, y al revisar el contenido del bolso, se percatan de
un extintor con un sistema de relojería adosado. El guardia de la
construcción alerto al trabajador sobre la posibilidad de que fuese una
bomba, tras discutir con el obrero –quien pretendía llevárselo para la
casa y/o venderlo- decide ir a devolverlo y alertar a gendarmería.

Una vez, devuelta en la entrada del recinto carcelario, los gendarmes
rechazan atenderlo indicándole con el acostumbrado tono de soberbia e
ignorancia que se lleve de aca aquel bolso y su contenido. (more…)

Athens: School bus and vehicle owned by construction company torched by ‘Eternal students at the University of Anarchist Insurrection/FAI – IRF’(Greece)

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

Edited version via InterArma:

*NEITHER HOLIDAYS – NOR UNIVERSITY EXAMS*

*FIRE TO PRISONS*

“I stand here as your declared and unrepentant enemy, I do not beg for
your lenience, I do not seek to engage in dialogue with you and your
peers. My values are at war with yours, so that every phrase I come out
with against you is a razor scoring the masks of your hypocrisy and
making clear the position and the role of each of us. You redact
hundreds of pages of files and you constantly form new cases, in order
to bury us in the prisons of your democracy, for decades. You are
preparing to impose “special detention conditions” on us, which is the
only coup missing from the pantheon of “special treatment” (prison
transfers, trials, laws), which you create to fight us. The simple laws
of physics dictate, that reaction is the consequence of action. Outside
this courtroom on free lands, there are rebelious people, comrades for
me, terrorists for you, who don’t intend to tolerate our extermination,
without making you and your political supervisors bleed first. You can
take this as a threat if you like. I believe, that this is the cynical
reality. Each option has its own cost. I guess, that, as judges and
servants of the law, you would agree with me on this.”

(Nikos Romanos)

Fragment of the statement at the trial for the robbery in Velvento, Kozani

In the frenetic and ever changing social reality that surrounds us, even
the scientific consultants of the bellwethers of the capitalist system
fall out in their predictions. In addition to the individual
geostrategic choices of their peer competitors (Palestine, Syria,
Ukraine, Iran, etc.) and some flaws and contradictions of the system
that appear to be sharpened during the (because of this) exacerbated
condition of the ongoing structural crisis, that which crumples the
fragile humanitarian masks of statists and refutes, constantly, every
certainty about the future, every myth concerning the omnipotence of the
state and any idea about the futility of the liberation struggle, is the
imponderable factor of the insurgents of this world.

The ‘europeanisation’ of the Greek prison system, the aggravating penal
repression of social struggles, the escalation of counter-terrorism
policy dictated by interstate police conferences about Justice and
National Security, the bounty on the heads of revolutionaries and the
recent legal establishment and announcement of the construction of a
high security prison (type C) in Domokos, that aims primarily at
prisoners involved in cases of armed revolutionary action, are all
“signs of the times” and expressions of class domination of the vast
majority of formal and informal social institutions controlled by the
State and Capital. The global and multi-level, capitalist and cultural
restructuring attempted, with the economic crisis as pretext and means,
requires social “peace”, mass vassalage, individualization and above all
annihilation of “internal enemies”.

There are, however, times when the analyzes are redundant, rage and
hatred for the established order become a stream that threatens to drown
not only the usurpers of our lives but also every indolent, hypocritical
challenger and inactive, indignant humanist. There are no excuses! We
are constantly looking for ways to escape the grid of imposition of
domination and strive to reclaim moments of an – in advance – alienated
life, deregulating and seeking to dismantle the clocks of the social
machine, while maintaining an open bet of anarchist revolution and total
rupture with the regime.

***

The imprisoned anarchist urban guerrilla Nikos Romanos, friend of
Alexandros Grigoropoulos, who was present at his murder by the uniformed
worm Korkoneas, is one of the dozens of anarchist prisoners of war of
the Hellenic Republic, who in recent years have faced the inquisitors of
the judicial mafia and the special treatment reserved for political
enemies of the system, and who boldly defended the project and the
values of Anarchy, taking responsibility and having the costs of certain
choices stemmed from them, regardless of the jumble of prosecutions
against them and the harsh conditions of incarceration, that have
implications on their physical existence and freedom.

Since 1st February ’13 when he was arrested after a car chase following
the double expropriation of state money along with his comrades
G.Mihailidis, A-D.Bourzoukos and D.Politis in the city of Veria
and the
province of Kozani, comrade Romanos, a member of the Informal Anarchist
Federation, is now among those anarchist prisoners who found themselves,
and among other people “accused” for participating in armed
revolutionary groups, temporarily in Greek prisons for bank robberies,
which were chosen as a means of disengagement from the established,
time-consuming living solution of wage slavery and of the strengthening
of the urban guerrilla warfare.

From the juvenile prison of Avlona, he participated in the national
exams and he is now considered – by law – as a student at TEI of Athens
and he is entitled to prison leaves in order to attend the courses,
which the State refuses to grant him. (A similar example is the case of
political prisoner Hercules Kostaris, convicted for involvement in the
Revolutionary Organization 17 November, who has taken over 200 regular
and educational prison leaves in recent years, which were stopped on
the pretext of the runaway of Christodoulos Ksiros). Not having any
illusions about the institution of education as a tool of subjugation
and domestication of people in the hands of Domination and the role of
the university as a factory that produces docile slaves in the service
of the capitalist profitability and normality, our comrade, who is now
in Korydallos prison refusing to unravel the maypole of the
responsibilities of the prison council and the special interrogator
Nikopoulos, is on a hunger strike since November 10th demanding the
granting of his “right”, for a breath of freedom!

Factual solidarity and support in this difficult struggle have already
been expressed by the others “arrested for Velvedo case” also with a
hunger strike inside the walls. At the same time, a broad, diverse
solidarity movement has developed throughout the Greek territory, while
public propaganda moves and nocturnal “interventions” are made abroad.

***

Remembering the axiom of uncertainty in the natural world and rejecting
the classical, deterministic conception of the proletarian onslaught at
the sky, the centralized organization models of the Struggle and
optimistic estimates of a shallow, reformist, idealism of “maturation of
the objective conditions”, we are there where ideologies impact on the
brutal reality; where the existential rebellion is combined with
horizontal and autonomous class struggle with internationalist and
anti-state character, as it is manifested in each specific
circumstances, becomes an integral part of the social war and seeks to
place anarchist characteristics for the war against Authority and the
liberation of Man and Nature; there where our conventions and
contradictions in everyday life do not prevent us from seeing the
tactical utility and to recognize the partiality of “intermediate
struggles” and the necessity of organizing the anarchist struggle as a
whole, individually and collectively; where only those who were
imprisoned, tortured or killed for devoting themselves to the project of
social liberation, without bowing their heads, can perceive the nobility
of soul and motivation in all its glory; where the consolidation of fear
as a permanent emotional state does not find fertile ground and its
every germ is forcibly uprooted as a parasite that sucks the evergreen
tree of the Revolution; where, at present, the theory meets practice and
any trace of doubt regarding answer to the dilemma of the Selection of a
submissive life or a life in Battle is nullified in front of the rise of
anarchist conscience; we are at the point of no return …

We are inspired by the shooting stars and the fortitude of the people
who fought with the Beast. By night embracing us we swoop in hostile
grounds, creating oases of fire within the social desert. So, in the
morning of 1/12, we torched a school bus owned by St. Lawrence College
in Ag. Dimitrios. Also, we claim responsibility for the attack with gas
canisters, shortly after midnight on 6/12, against a car owned by the
construction company Aktor Facility Management (subsidiary of ELLAKTOR
group, known for its involvement in mining gold in Skouries, Halkidiki
and several cases of pillaging of the natural environment). The attacks
will continue.

*VICTORY TO THE STRUGGLE OF NIKOS ROMANOS*

*STRENGTH TO THE ANARCHIST PRISONERS ON HUNGER STRIKE*

*SOLIDARITY WITH THE WANTED COMRADES AROUND THE WORLD*

*LONG LIVE THE FREE MAN*

*LONG LIVE ANARCHY*

For the widespread (anti) – social insurgence,

*Eternal students at the University of Anarchist Insurrection/FAI – IRF*

Montreal: Locks jammed at a drone research facility (Canada)

Saturday, December 6th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

On the night of November 29, we snuck into the engineering department of McGill University and jammed the locks of the Aerospace Mechatronics Lab using superglue as a minimum gesture of solidarity with the survivors of the Israeli state’s summer attack on Gaza, in which 800 drone strikes took place over the course of a 50 day period.

Official documents obtained by campus group Demilitarize McGill through an access-to-information request reveal that the Aerospace Mechatronics Lab has received upwards of 262,000$ from the Canadian military to develop software for miniature drones or “strikebots” designed for surveillance and urban warfare.

The advent of drone technology originally offered an oblivious public the “feel-good” fantasy of surgical-precision in the exercise of deadly force, whereas today we now know very well that there exists a significant body of data documenting the fact that Us & Israeli drone campaigns have killed, injured, and displaced thousands of non-combatants in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia and the occupied territories.

İstanbul: ‘ELF/Insurrectionary Solidarity Faction’ sabotaged a road roller for Nikos Romanos (Turkey)

Friday, December 5th, 2014

In the night of 1st of December, we broke down windows of a road roller and cut its cables in the Kocasinan district of Istanbul, with the intention to show our solidarity to anarchist prisoner Nikos Romanos, who is on hunger strike since 24 days and then to Yannis Michailidis, Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, and Dimitris Politis who have started a hunger strike in support of Nikos Romanos in the Greek prisons.

Then we spray-painted some slogans on a wall close to the target: “Nikos Romanos” and “Fire to the prison cells“.

With this small action, we also salute the warriors who have fallen while not giving way to ISIS butchers, we salute rebels who refuse to stay as protestors, then fight
against cops and attack to the targets of repression and exploitation in Mexico, France, Ferguson and Santiago, we salute ALF-ELF cells who increase actions and attacks in Istanbul and around, we salute the insurrectionaries who got bored of being armchair revolutionaries, who got bored of insurrectional vaporings and Fetishism of Organisation and who got bored of losing their anarchic imagination in
the swamp of liberal opposition.

Until freedom of Nikos Romanos and all anarchist prisoners of war around the world…
Solidarity… Attack… İnsurrection…

Until Total Liberation…
Social War!

London: ‘FAI – Fires on the Horizon – Nikos Romanos’ take responsibility for the burning of a security vehicle (UK)

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

Act for freedom now! receives anonymous:

Anarchists in action. Today 3/12/14 we set on fire a security car in London in solidarity with our brothers Nikos Romanos. Yiannis Mixailidis, Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, Dimitris Politis, they are on hunger strike in Athens.

That night we kept our eyes fixed on the horizon and saw many falling stars drawing their own chaotic paths. And we counted them over and over, we made wishes, calculated the odds. We knew that our desire for a free life had to step over all that oppresses us, murders us, destroys us, so we dived into the void just like the shooting stars we were observing. Since then innumerable stars have fallen, perhaps it’s time for our star to fall, who knows? If we had the answers ready, we wouldn’t have become what we are, but selfish bastards who would teach people how to become rodents that eat each other as they do today. At least we still remain implacable and stubborn like the people of our kind. And those of us who closed their eyes in pain and travelled far continue to keep their eyes stuck on that night sky we also observed. And they watch us fall, beautiful and shining stars. Now it’s our turn. Now, without hesitation, we fall.

We salute! our comrades of F.A.I. Torches in the Night – Earth Liberation Front.

SOLIDARITY MEANS ATTACK!

Explosivo contra centro de salud de la policía ($hile)

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

[Noticias de la Guerra Social]

Durante la mañana del 11 de Noviembre del 2014, se activo un intenso
operativo por parte del GOPE (Grupo de Operaciones Especiales), tras el
aviso que realizo el guardia de seguridad al encontrar un artefacto
explosivo instalado en la CESFAM, un centro de salud de carabineros.

Esta institución se encuentra cerca del paradero 5 de Pajaritos, en
calle Gladys Marín 6701, la cual fue completamente evacuada y sitiada
por la policía para intentar desactivar el artefacto..
Mediante la carroña periodística y los voceros de la fiscalía, se
informo que el GOPE no pudo realizar una detonación controlada, teniendo
que neutralizar el artefacto y llevarlo a periciar en laboratorios de
Labocar.

El explosivo habría sido un Niple o tubo metálico, de cerca de unos 30
cm, tapado en ambos extremos repleto de TNT mas Anfo, que pretendía ser
activado mediante una mecha la cual no habría funcionado.

En el lugar no fueron encontrados panfletos y hasta el momento ningún
grupo ha revindicado la acción.

Call for a Black December!

via contrainfo:

Chile:

On November 28th, comrades in Santiago decided to attack a public transport line with the purpose of calling for a Black December in memory of Sebastián Oversluij, anarchist killed in December 2013 during a failed bank expropriation. This action was also intended to express solidarity with imprisoned compañera Tamara Sol Farías Vergara, as well as other fighters prosecuted, incarcerated or fallen in combat. Once the public transport bus was engulfed in flames, they threw pyrotechnics to make their rage and rebellion flash more forcefully. “(…) We call for a Black December in memory of comrade Sebastian Oversluij. Solidarity with Tamara Sol Vergara. Hans Niemeyer, Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar to the streets! Strength to comrade Nikos Romanos. An affectionate embrace to the comrades who attacked the PDI. Mauricio Morales and Sebastian Oversluij present!”

On November 26th, comrades carried out a direct action outside the Juan Gómez Millas campus in Santiago, erecting street barricades and blocking the traffic for almost an hour. A young student, who had nothing to do with the action, was arrested by cops. An anonymous communiqué mentions among others: “(…) May our ideals live in everyday and violent action. A salute to the combatants: Juan Aliste Vega, Marcelo Villarroel, Freddy Fuentevilla, Carlos Quiduleo, Juan Flores, Nataly Casanova, Guillermo Duran, Alejandro Astorga, Sol Vergara and all prisoners in the territory occupied by the State of Chile, as well as to Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar, to the prisoners of Mexico, Indonesia, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Greece, to Nikos Romanos and Yannis Michailidis, both on hunger strike demonstrating that the anti-authoritarian struggle does not end in prison, but another breach opens from there, other means to keep blowing out the existent. Also all our love and memory to our comrades who have fallen in combat Claudia Lopez, Jhony Cariqueo, Mauricio Morales, Sebastian Oversluij, Jorge Saldivia, the latter two brothers killed in bank robberies. All our loving remembrance will always take the form of fire and war against every authority. Long live anarchy.”

United Kingdom:

The FAI Torches in the Night/Earth Liberation Front claimed responsibility for burning a vehicle in the service of the French multinational GDF Suez on November 25th in the Long Ashton area, Bristol (England), where they also torched an audacious 4×4, two luxury sports cars and a vehicle of OCS, one of the top security companies in the UK, in revenge for Rémi Fraisse, the nuclear industry, the prison society and the Green Capital: “(…) Against class society and industrial development, even and especially the green-washed ones – Victory for ZAD/Testet and ZAD/Notre-Dames-des-Landes – Victory to the rotating hunger strike in the Greek prison system (in support of our FAI confederate Nikos Romanos) and all prisoners at war with the prison.”

Greece:

In the early hours of November 30th, a mini-riot broke out in the neighbourhood of Exarchia, Athens, including Molotov cocktail attacks against anti-riot squadrons, flaming barricades, and smashing of luxury cars, while slogans in solidarity with anarchist hunger striker Nikos Romanos were being chanted loudly in the streets.
At approximately the same nighttime, in the city of Thessaloniki, a group of individuals reportedly launched Molotov cocktails at the cops guarding the Turkish consulate.

Late on November 29th, a group of anarchists attacked a police station in Volos with stones and paint, shouting slogans in solidarity with Nikos Romanos.

On November 29th, a group of comrades sabotaged a scheduled meeting of the minister of Public Order Vassilis Kikilias with mainstream media thugs in Patras. The anarchist intervention took place outside the offices of a local newspaper, in solidarity with the hunger strikers Nikos Romanos and Yannis Michailidis. The cops were caught completely off guard, and hurried the minister away from there. One of the shouts was: “Nikos Romanos, we’re with you; as for you, Kikilias: go fuck yourself!”

At daybreak of November 29th, the offices of the Legal Council of the State in Heraklion, on Crete, were attacked in solidarity with anarchists Nikos Romanos and Yannis Michailidis, both on hunger strike since 10/11 and 17/11 respectively. The front door and first-floor windows were broken, and paint was thrown inside and outside the building.

In a display of solidarity with anarchist hunger strikers Nikos Romanos and Yannis Michailidis, a bank ATM was torched in downtown Athens on 23/11 and a branch of the Hellenic Post was explosively attacked on 27/11 in Pefki (the Athens neighbourhood where Theofilos Mavropoulos was seriously wounded and arrested in May 2011, after a shootout with two patrol officers, when Yannis Michailidis managed to get away driving the patrol car of the same cops).

In the night towards November 26th, anarchists vandalized ATMs with glue in the city of Ioannina, in solidarity with the hunger strikers Nikos Romanos, Yannis Michailidis and Iraklis Kostaris (the latter conducted a hunger strike from 29/10 until 28/11, when his request was denied).

In the early hours of November 26th, bank ATMs were doused in gasoline and set on fire in Nea Smyrni, Athens, as a token of incendiary solidarity with anarchist comrades Nikos Romanos and Yannis Michailidis.

In another communiqué, arsonists claimed responsibility for a string of attacks (ATMs and vehicles torched) in nine different districts of Athens, in solidarity with anarchist hunger striker Nikos Romanos.

- Strength to N.Romanos, on hunger strike since 10/11 -

On November 26th, at midday, the scumbag lawyer Alexis Kougias, who defended the cops that murdered Alexis Grigoropoulos, was assaulted when spotted in the Athens neighbourhood of Exarchia. This (random) attack was dedicated to Nikos Romanos – friend of slain Grigoropoulos, who witnessed the killing in December 2008 – and Yannis Michailidis.

On November 23rd, comrades in Thessaloniki went on the offensive, and placed a homemade explosive device consisting of gas canisters at the house of police unionist Dimitris Padiotis (president of the Thessaloniki Police Officers Union), located in the area of Kastra. They claimed this action in support of captive anarchist Nikos Romanos, on hunger strike as of 10/11, making also mention of the ongoing solidarity hunger strike of anarchist prisoner Yannis Michailidis (since 17/11), and imprisoned 17N member Iraklis Kostaris.

On November 19th, the local offices of the main ruling party Nea Dimokratia in the Athens district of Ambelokipi (situated between the Greek police headquarters and the Ambelokipi police station) were attacked in a display of “loud” solidarity with Nikos Romanos, Iraklis Kostaris and Yannis Michailidis.

On November 17th, a security company vehicle was burned in the area of Metamorfosi, Athens, in solidarity with Nikos Romanos, Iraklis Kostaris and Yannis Michailidis.

On November 13th, the Group of Proletarian Attack targeted the Galatsi tax office in Athens, intending to burn down the archives section inside the building with a high-power incendiary device. Due to an unforeseen obstacle, the incendiary mechanism was finally detonated in the outdoor space. Among other things, the group expressed solidarity with Iraklis Kostaris and Nikos Romanos in their fight for prison furloughs, “for breaths of life away from the galleys of bourgeois democracy”.

‘Queer Meinhof / FAI’ take responsibility for setting a city police car on fire – Warsaw (Poland)

Friday, November 28th, 2014

Last night (25/26 November), the first spark of fire that burns today in France, Greece and USA, illuminated the space under a car of the city-police, which was parked outside the police station in Mazowiecka street in Warsaw.
We’d chosen the target not by accident.

The institution of the City Police – summoned in purpose of cleaning the city-parks had become a paramilitary group, who ‘cleans’ mainly homeless people, hustles kids that smokes weed or skip school. So called routine ‘interventions’ usually end up with brutal violence – petting boys in uniforms’ egos.

That’s how on the 3rd of October, the City police’s intervention ended in Szczecinek – by dumping a 20 year old beaten to a pulp in front of hospital. For that, or for other interventions of this type – no policeman was ever held responsible – so we’re taking the justice in our hands.

It disgusts us that they’re walking the streets with impunity and pride. Just like the murderer of Max Itoya – Artur Brzeziński, Mike Brown’s executioner – Darren Wilson or the killer of Remi from Testet. There is no, and there will not be the agreement for that from the part of the society. We will not leave them alone, because when they put on their uniforms, they stop acting as people, they stop being people in our eyes, they’re the bodyguards of the government – the money advocate.

Politicians recently are racing in postulating to dissolve the city-police. Neither the orders from up there, nor any reform that would dissolve the services under a concrete name (not holding responsible these bandits in uniforms and in the same time helping to grow other services) is not going to be enough for us.

The idea of dissolving the city-police that we’re putting into practice is a physical confrontation. It will not leave out the police, prison guards or border police. We know, that we’re taking part in the global wave of resistance that already takes place and will grow stronger, also here – in Poland. So, don’t be afraid to act! let them finally feel the fear, that they’re serving us. Destroying the law enforcements isn’t difficult – start from killing the cop in your own head.

Our symbolic action we’re dedicating to the memory of Remi killed by the cops in french Testet and to friends behind the bars.

Instead of a minute of silence – a whole life in struggle!

Fire to all the prisons, closed detention camps, psychiatric wards and police stations!

Recent attacks and sabotage (Italy)

Friday, November 28th, 2014

Latest direct actions in Italy:

12 November, Milano: anonymous claim: “On Wednesday night, November 12th, we attacked 5 ATMs with hammer and vandalized several luxury cars (punctured tires and broken windows), as a minimum gesture of individual revolt against a capitalist system that exploits and devastates.

We dedicate this action to the compagni and the compagna accused of attacking the TAV construction yard in May 2013 as well as to all anarchist prisoners. We cannot stand idly by while our comrades are buried under years of imprisonment, or limit ourselves to symbolic acts that do not cause any nuisance.
The only solidarity is attack!”

15 November, Venezia: according to the media, the justice palace was vandalized with paint and spraypaint against the TAV: “Free the no tav prisoners”.

17 November, Napoli: according to the media, an explosive device containing 1 kilo of black powder was found unexploded in front of a Deutsche Bank in the neighborhood of Vomero. Until now no-one claimed the action.

18 November, Cremona: according to the media, a PD (=Democratic Party) office was vandalized in Cremona, with a smashed window, damage to the videosurveillance cameras and spray-paints like: “Stop evictions”, “PD=Police”, “Corvetto resists” and “Free the no tav prisoners”.

18 November, Milano: according to the media, during the night an ALER office in via Inganni was set on fire. This happened a few hours after the eviction of two anarchist squats and other houses and the resistance to it. A window was smashed and a molotov cocktail thrown inside, with heavy damages to furniture, computers, papers and other material (picture: http://www.informa-azione.info/files/0milanoaler.jpg) .
ALER is the company responsible for the recent plan of evicting hundreds of occupied houses, for the business of the thousands of houses left vacant, for property speculations on housing projects in Milano.

Unknown date, Viterbo: anonymous claim: “An animal liberation activist once wrote that in the last twenty years the number of vegetarians and vegans has increased dramatically, but the number of activists has remained the same. This made us think and we decided to bring animal liberation back to its true meaning: to free animals. One November night we visited a small farm in Orte (Province of Viterbo); we opened the doors of the cages that imprisoned ten rabbits, giving them freedom. We then opened the henhouse and carried away with us about 10 turkeys and other birds. We dedicate this action to those who are truly active, in the way and form they prefer, and not on social networks!”

20 November, Milano: anonymous claim: “20th of november is the day of remembrance for the people killed for being trans. This year the registered deaths in the world are 226. We decided to attack a catholic church because it is a symbol of the anti-trans oppression. The violence experienced by trans people is the consequence of their moral and anti-gender rules. In the night of 20/11 we attacked the church of San Paolo in via vismara 2. We glued the locks of several doors, we threw pink paint on the facade and spraypainted: “20/11 NIGHT OF TRANS REVENGE” on the front door. LET’S ATTACK THE CHURCHES! REVENGE AND NOT ONLY REMEMBRANCE!”

22 November, Trento: according to the media, the local office of PD party was painted and some writings were left like: “Freedom for the arrested in Valsusa”, “No PD – Corvetto resists”, “NO TAV – no evictions”. The traffic was blocked and a banner against high speed was hanged. Some days before, on the 19th, an high speed train was blocked in the train station in solidarity with the No Tav resistance; the sides were spraypainted with slogans dedicated to Rémi Fraisse and for the freedom of arrested comrades.

In the night of November 21st, 2014, the Office of probation services and juvenile court assistance located in the Museumstrasse in Altona, Hamburg, was attacked with stones, and many windows were broken.

Against the State, its Justice and minions!

Revenge for Rémi, street fires for nuclear industry, prison society and the European Green Capital (UK)

Wednesday, November 26th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

French police have killed Rémi Fraisse while they try to rout a combative forest occupation that prevents the Sivens dam. We have burned a vehicle in the service of the French multinational GDF (who work towards the new nuclear reactor not far away at Hinkley Point on top of other nuclear projects in many countries, force dams on irreplaceable Amazonian indigenous lands with the support of Brazil’s military, provide facility management for the police force in this region, run utilities on the Shetland Islands for one of the biggest oil and gas terminals in Europe, manage multiple French prisons, and all around design technologies which attempt to disguise industrial capitalism as sustainable development for the same banks and commercial entities as always).

This was in the Long Ashton area, where we then also burned an audacious 4×4, two luxury sports cars, and a vehicle of OCS (who are considered one of the top security companies in the UK, providing guard personnel, patrols, CCTV instillation and monitoring, etc.). (more…)

Anti-Pipeline Graffiti Raid Update: VPD claiming $500,000 in damages not including graffiti (Canada)

Saturday, November 15th, 2014

by indyvan, Vancouver Media Coop

On June 3rd, 2014, Vancouver Police staged a “guns-drawn” raid against a house of known indigenous and anarchist opponents to the energy policies of the central government and its corporate sponsors.

The ostensible reason for the raid was given as the search for graffiti materials believed to be tied to an ongoing “no pipelines” tagging campaign. One person was arrested, but released without charges or conditions.

The Vancouver Police Department returned on June 12 at around 9am with a warrant to take a DNA blood sample from the accused. The accused was again released without charges. There has been no info on the result of the DNA blood sample nearly 5 months after. (more…)

Thessaloniki: Claim of responsibility for a bank arson (Greece)

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Act for freedom now! receives:

When the enemy seems to be standing up well and uses all means to crash anything opposite, then the attack towards him, his symbols and infrastructures is the only way. Wherever we look we see various types of authority, either called cop, judge either called school, bank, church, prison. Institutions of a rotten system that every day remind us that we are not free. Their real value will be shown with their destruction and through ashes and wreckage their beauty will be shown. No more compromises fit here right now. Their place should be taken over by determination and continuous struggle.

In the undeclared war which is taking place, when there isn’t direct usage of weapons, then other means are mobilised in order to hit the mind and the soul of every unrepentant revolutionary.

The new high security prisons are aiming right at that, his extermination. When its their turn, judges and prosecutors give revengeful long sentences. Prosecutor Olga Smirli confirmed her role at the trial for the ATE bank (now Pireaus Bank) in Pyrgetos Larisa giving away 16 years to G.NAXAKIS and G.SARAFOUDIS, with the only evidence being their political identity.

Either the two comrades participated in the robbery, either not, we are with them and we dedicate them the attack on Pireaus Bank on the early hours of the 10th of September in Sykies, Thessaloniki. This act is a small sign of solidarity and a message that everything continues…

Lets fight, everyone in their own way, forcefully, with the means that they have, till the end, until total liberation.

STRENGTH TO N.MAZIOTIS AND P.ROUPA
A RAISED FIST TO ALL REVOLUTIONARIES
