Initial collective response to public letter of JoNina & Lorenzo “Racism at the NA ABC Conference” (USA)

September 22nd, 2014

We are writing as the crew that organized the North American ABC Conference, in response to JoNina and Lorenzo’s public letter “Racism at the NA ABC Conference.” We are nine people spread across the country, from New York to Sacramento, in conjunction with Denver ABC, and as such have a range of views on their open letter. This response is not a full statement of all of those views, or even a consensus of what things we all agree on, but rather a response required to urgently address the letter and to clarify information within it. This statement is NOT to discredit, disqualify, disregard, or fault JoNina and Lorenzo for their experience(s). The information provided is correct to the best of our account, and is provided for the purpose of transparency.

We also note that our public response to this matter is made against our preference for dealing with conflicts internal to anarchist movements. We are troubled by JoNina and Lorenzo’s decision to publish their letter on the Internet (including Facebook) in addition to sending it out over our closed listserv. We find it inappropriate to publicly handle internal matters, where anyone and everyone is privy to internal conflict, that typically makes it difficult to move forward and lends itself more to internet flame wars than revolutionary efforts to deal with oppression within our movements.

Update about the 3 arrested comrades accused for explosive attacks (Chile)

September 22nd, 2014

(Translated by Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras with info from Refractario)

During the morning of September 18, 2014, several raids shook Santiago seeking to give results to the latest explosives attacks. Finally the police in a broad operation gets the arrest of 3 comrades. According to the press and the police, detention realized thanks to a investigation from the security cameras inside the subway train and a ticket-card used by the suspects.

Comrades arrested are:
Natalie Casanova Muñoz (26 years),
Juan Flores Riquelme (22 years) ,
Guillermo Durán Méndez (25 years).

When comrades were transferred to the “Jusitice Center”, they keep their heads up and Juan shouted “Down with the Police-State!”

The press, as the power carrion, has been reporting about the “dangerous individuals” that “belong to an hermetic anarchist cell”, developing their classic campaign creating an internal enemy. Read the rest of this entry »

International Conspiracy for Revenge claim responsibility for the coordinated attack on the 39° Bosque and 1° police stations in Santiago (Chile)

September 21st, 2014

from contrainformate transl. waronsociety:

On August 11 we carried out an attack on the 39° Bosque and 1° police stations in Santiago. We wanted to show that it is possible to hit the police right in the nose. It ended up as we would have liked as some bastion of law was injured.

/”they are mortal and their laws are destructible”/

We love to see wounded or dead cops whether in conflictual clashes or acts of sabotage.They should know that anyone of them could face the same fate as the pigs Moyano, Vera, or Bobadilla; they are all responsible (and volunteers) of belonging to a military institution that represses the population on a daily basis and orders us to comply to the laws imposed by the powerful.

It should be clear to them that each aggression that has been committed by the pigs of power is not forgotten, that their condition of impunity will not last long, they are human beings, mortal like any other.

Let us dare to confront them, there is every reason to detest the existence of the police, ratis, repressive forces, and/or guardians of the rich. They are the military force of the bourgeoisie in charge of suppressing and punishing every attempt to recuperate that which has been accumulated for centuries thanks to exploitation.

Whether in robberies or protests, they are those in charge of exerting fear on the population. Their essence is the defense of the system making us submit to its miseries. They and their bosses should be beaten and attacked with every means and all their manifestations.

We remember each blow given and yearn for the multiplication of direct attacks against their repulsive authority, as the preparation of material needed in order to cause the desired damage is minimal.

We remember and align ourselves with the compañerxs who carried out the failed attack on January 1, 2014 on the 14° station in ñuñoa, we also would have liked to see how this powerful device detonated and we celebrate the attack on the Lo Prado station!!

We send our fraternal greetings to all the families and loved ones of those fallen at the hands of the police.

Present in our minds are Matias Catrileo, Jhonny Cariqueo, Claudia Lopez, Daniel Melinao, Javier Mendoza Collio, all are present, dead here or in whichever part of the world they are part of the social war.

We are adding to the initiative of the compas in Indonesia and we make up part of:

Kansas City: Anarchist comrade Eric G. King arrested for alleged incendiary attack on Representative office (USA)

September 20th, 2014

The following is a report from the capitalist media. Comrades are in the process of contacting Eric and setting up support. More information will come as it becomes available.

His address at the moment is:

Eric King
27090045
CCA Leavenworth
100 Highway Terrace
Leavenworth, KS 66048
USA

Charges have been filed in the firebombing incident at Congressman Emanuel Cleaver’s office in Kansas City, September 11, 2014.

Eric G. King, a 28 year old local anarchist, was caught on surveillance tapes throwing two lit alcohol bottles into the office and running away.

Kansas City police initially identified King as a suspect because he previously had come under scrutiny during an investigation of anti-government graffiti on a local Bank of America building and the spray painting of Kansas City police vehicles, according to federal court records.

Passers-by injured in explosive attack, confusions, reflections, responses, arrested people & communique (Chile)

September 20th, 2014

Responses to Attack on Transit Hub in Chile

Our best intentions, visions, ideas and methods can always end up in the hands of fools or enemies who seek to undermine us. As has been written by various individuals or groups over the last couple of weeks, a critique of society as a function of power and domination does not legitimate attacks in public places full of random people whose relationship with the power structure is unknown and with such a high probability of error and accident. This kind of attack is not the logical conclusion of our arguments and analyses, although individual civilians may at times constitute a target when they clearly ally themselves with power in a given situation involving their active complicity and force. Moreover, I think that even to put one’s faith in the police to ‘do the right thing’ and evacuate an area is an error. We have to carry out rigorous logistical checks and balances on our explosive/incendiary deeds without putting misplaced trust in State functionaries. The State has much more to gain from allowing civilians to be wounded or killed as a result of such deeds than from rescuing anarchist groups from their own stupidity, if that is indeed who was responsible – the para-state and far-right often use these kind of tactics, not anarchists and nihilists. I cannot talk for the CCF, but I don’t feel this action to be an expression of the words and deeds of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire in Greece whose intelligence, integrity and wisdom of deed I trust absolutely, as an expression of my own projectuality. V.Q.

-

I point out that from my understanding of the Angry Brigade of UK, that this group would have never have carried out such a poorly executed and suspiciously ignorant attack as the ones performed in Chile against the subway targets. The Angry Brigade were influenced by situationist and libertarian-anarchist ideas, who spoke directly about class violence and the victory of the organised working class. And so, not only do the Angry Brigade have absolutely nothing in common with the operational parameters used by whoever made those attacks, but they seem to have also very little in terms of ideas.

Life in the UK and Ireland has some important lessons for armed direct action groups from one of the longest running and dirty counter-insurgency wars in modern history, the struggle against British colonialism and sectarian violence. Any understanding of virtually all armed violent action in UK and Ireland is informed by that experience, as were the Angry Brigade. All of those who are old enough to remember, on all sides, know what it is like to live under the constant threat that we could be killed by an indiscriminate attack because of the war going on.

And so, despite being very sick of the herd and its values, I remind of the bombing of the town centre of Omagh, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland on Saturday afternoon, 15 August, 1998, which killed 29 and injured 220, and was carried out by men of the Real IRA under surveillance by the British security services and GCHQ, the UK government communications surveillance and spy agency. The bombers carried the explosive device over the border and into a busy shopping district at a peak time and gave a clear warning. Unfortunately, the rest is politics. L.

: Reino Unido: Respuestas Anarquistas Entorno a los Ataques Anarquistas en los Metros en Chile

(Translated by Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras)

On Monday 8 September, a bomb exploded on a transit corridor of a commercial center near to a subway train station at 14 PM. 14 people were injured, including passers and workers that worked cleaning the building.

Government pointed to anarchists, talking about “struggle against terrorism” and that kind of things. They mentioned [smeared] a CCF text (“Let’s become dangerous”) and the anarchist meeting in Mèxico in December, 2013, as examples of instances where there were apparently reflections on the idea of attacking civilians. Also they mentioned about comrades from Chile that travelled to Mexico.

In the first day after that fact, some people and comrades thought that it could be the action from fascist or paramilitary groups, because the place, really, is not exclusive of powerful people.

Also, some anarchist action groups spoke about the importance of making clear and not blind attacks, considering civil people as targets only when they are clear representatives of power and never leaving the safety of our actions to chance. Read the rest of this entry »

Anti-Prison Mobilisation for the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners (Mexico)

September 18th, 2014

From ABC Mexico:

The prison, like the police, is a fact necessary to the maintenance of social peace. It is the domination and control that allow this filthy world to be maintained. Jail means fear, uncertainty, shame, loneliness and isolation. Society trains individuals to be good citizens. My strength as an individual takes root in fear rejection could be a limit on my life. Of course, I have fear, like everybody, of many things, but my desire for freedom are larger. Fear is often built and can be destroyed when confronted. What matters is to look beyond, to exceed the limits, boundaries, beyond the walls, mountains, rivers and oceans.
Amelie Trudeu

Solidarity with our imprisoned comrades must be a constant and permanent activity without waiting dates marked on the calendar. However, it is also important to carry out solidarity activities in a coordinated manner between different groups. In that sense it was convened to conduct solidarity actions from 23 to 30 August, not with the idea of centralizing solidarity, but rather to strengthen ties and collaborations internationally.

In Mexico City the call was well received among anarchist groups and individuals. Forums, events in public places, leafleting, radio transmission, an anti-prison critical-mass, placing banners. This is a brief chronicle. Read the rest of this entry »

Dark Nights #41 : ‘Against all States – Against all Gods’ – Sept 2014 (ACN)

September 16th, 2014

24 pages B&W : Dark Nights #41

International anti-prisons insurrectional newsletter Dark Nights is back after a summer break. Front page news is the communique by ‘FAI “Sacco & Vanzetti” Circle of Propaganda by Life & by Deed’ for the incendiary attack prior to the NATO summit in Wales, against BAE Systems Arms Development Centre. News of this new anarchist urban guerrilla attack taking place has been suppressed by the regime, as they are frightened of the spread of the anti-system attacks and the damage to the image of the blood-soaked company. The fiery attack took place in Filton, Bristol, where many military-industrial-technological companies are situated, and proved that the direct action groups can strike the military-industrial complex in their closed sites.

Primary article by individualist nihilist-anarchist comrade Venona Q. is about authoritarian fundamentalism and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The brief article is about raw power and the total liberation war against all Gods and States. Against “progress”, the “West”, “democracy” and “civilisation”, the writer sounds a sharply critical and vengeful cry against the mullahs, militias, bureaucrats and fundamentalist murderers of the Middle East and the West alike. Reminding us of the continuous visions of the fight for human dignity against dominion by concepts, authorities and the power of death.

There’s an incomplete round-up of direct action sabotages, attacks and riots in our chronology, compiling incidents since late May 2014, and a complimentary section giving coverage to the International Week for Anarchist Prisoners which recently took place, that was organised by the world-wide Anarchist Black Cross groups, counter-information groups, action cells and others. During the last few months there have been intense efforts taking place in prisons across Europe, as prisoners in Greece carried out a campaign and hungerstrike against the Type C prison plans, where Domokos prison will be turned into a huge Guantanamo. The hungerstrike is finished now, but the prisoners of Greece and their friends and relatives have vowed to undertake an struggle by all means. This has now spread into the prisons of Germany and Switzerland, as prisoners there also found common cause and solidarity with the fight taking place and carried out their own hungerstrike mobilisation. This kind of trans-border action is a vital sign of a re-construction of the new internationalist struggle happening and we are with the prisoners in struggle in our hearts, words, thoughts and actions.

And there is the usual selection of prisoners letters, including the text by imprisoned anarchist Carlos ‘Chivo’ Lopez in Mexico about informality, an article by the imprisoned members cell of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire about negation, coherence and refusal in the active sense during the trial prosecuting them, plus news reports and more writings from our imprisoned comrades enabling their wishes, dreams and struggles to escape beyond the walls of the prisons.

Tamara Sol, Francisco Solar, Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Graziano Mazzarelli, Chiara Zenobi, Nikos Maziotis, dozens and dozens more… To the streets!

Madrid: Fierce Resistance as Neo-Nazi group ‘MSR’ opens ‘white Spanish only’ occupied center (Spain)

September 16th, 2014

via squat.net:

Series of big anti-nazi demos against fascist squatters… Anti-fascists seize ‘white Spanish only’ food stall and distribute to all.. Fascist squatters may have owners permission… Squatters movement disowns fascist squat… Police turn blind eye to nazi “okupas” in Tetuan barrio…. Fascist thugs from MSR squat injure local youths.. Media equates nazi’ Social Home’ with long existing popular and anti racist Squat center ‘La Enrededera’ to demand its eviction.

Thousands of neighbours have come out against the nazi squat.
They are not squatters: they are Nazis.

On 18 August, the neo-Nazi group Social Republican Movement (MSR) announced on social media their entry into an abandoned building in Madrid’s Tetuan barrio and their intention to turn it into a social center for ‘those in need’ provided they were white and of Spanish nationality.

Opening such center in the district with the largest migrant population of Madrid and the opposition it generated among neighbors attracted media attention, especially after the massive demonstration against held the same day as opening of the center, on August 30.

Since then, it has been common to see the press referred to the center as a “squatted building” and members of the neo-Nazi group as “squatters” in an error which is then repeated in social networks. The center is equated with the squatting movement, which has always had among its main objectives the recovery of abandoned homes to become social centers and buildings.

This assimilation was false, but the reality mattered little. Read the rest of this entry »

A communique about the disciplinary wings of Korydallos prison by Dimitris Politis (Greece)

September 16th, 2014

via interarma:

In the middle of July, I was transferred to the state hospital of Nikea for some medical examinations. There, given the nature of that examination and due to the police presence during the procedure, which was demanded by the doctor himself, I refused to be examined and I returned to prison. On the 6th of August, I was called to a disciplinary council on the charge of disobedience because I refused to execute the command of my police escort. By entering the office of the commanding prison officer with the intention of telling the prosecutor that I have nothing to state and then leave, I sat opposite to her and she addressed me saying “stand up”. I didn’t pay attention to what she said and while I was telling her to get serious, she told me again with an arrogant smile to stand up. Then, I crumpled the piece of paper where the charges were written and I threw it in her face. I was obviously standing before another arrogant and misled person, who was under the illusion that she owns the world. I was facing another expendable and petty pawn that was under the illusion that all prisoners are inferior to it. So, in order for her to restore her wounded ego, she “punished” me with a five-day restriction penalty in a “special detention wing”. Read the rest of this entry »

Ústí nad Labem: Communique + Video for arson of police car by ‘Proletarian Solidarity Cell / Network Revolutionary Cells’ (Czech Republic)

September 16th, 2014

DOWNLOAD FLV VIDEO: Police car burned

In solidarity with anarchist prisoners all over the world, in the morning of Saturday 30th August 2014, we made an arson attack on a police car, which stood in the street in front of the station Truhlářova in Ústí nad Labem. The event has become a fragment of a mosaic of solidarity activities during the International Week of Anarchist Prisoners. It was announced for 23 to 30 August 2014.

Francesco Puglisi, André Mazurek, Yiannis Dimitrakis, Olegovich Igor Kharchenko, Rebecca Rubin, Bill Dunne, Nikos Maziotis and many others, known and unknown. They were imprisoned for their anarchist attitudes and actions. Our arson attack against the police is a solidarity message sent to all of them. The communication of this direct action is simple. In the ongoing class war the State puts in jail the people when they actively resist. A good sign of solidarity with the imprisoned comrades is therefore continuing the resistance. In opposition to the same goals with the same means that our friends often chose before being placing in the cells of the State.

There is no doubt that the purpose of prison is not only isolation and the subjection of detainees. In a broader sense, it is their task to influence those who survive outside of a prison cell. They intimidate every resisting person and try to break his/her will to fight. Anarchist groups around the world show that to achieve this goal is virtually impossible. While the States imprison many anarchists, others -despite the risks- continue to practice rebellion. Our arson attack in Ústí nad Labem is a powerful reminder that suffocating our friends behind the prison walls will not smother our libertarian will to resist. On the contrary, every act of State repression against the anarchist movement recreates other rebellious passions. They manifest themselves in a variety of direct actions and will continue until all the comrades leave prison.

Interview with Helmut Pohl and Rolf Clemens Wagner of the Red Army Faction (Germany)

September 16th, 2014

The interview was conducted by Rüdiger Göbel, Peter Rau, Wera Tichter, and Gerd Schumann of jungle Welt, left newspaper in Germany, 2007. Long live the combative memory of Helmut Pohl and Rolf Clemens Wagner of the RAF. Never forget, never forgive.

junge Welt: The media has squeezed everything possible out of the 2007 anniversary of the “German Autumn.” The events of 1977 came to a bitter end. The way it is being depicted on TV, on the radio, and in the print media constitutes a sort of hysterical coming to terms with the Red Army Faction (RAF): The Stammheim Night (Spiegel), a series; The Terror Years (Die Zeit), a special issue; The Bourgeois Children’s War, a primetime ARD documentary. How do you feel about the way in which the RAF’s history is being handled, given that this history is an important, if not the essential, component of your personal biographies?

Helmut Pohl: It’s unpleasant. To be smashed over the head with this sort of campaign of defamation, caricature, and debasement is somewhat infuriating. It has concrete consequences for Christian[2], as well. Beyond that, it seems to me that the principal component of the campaign, the two-part Aust[3] documentary on ARD, bombed. It’s already been done to death. People don’t want to hear about it anymore.

jW: You’re talking about the fuss surrounding Christian Klar during the first three months of 2007. In the case of a prisoner who has been behind bars for 24 years, relaxed conditions with the possibility of a pardon and release seems appropriate. His admittedly partisan, but essentially analytical contribution to the junge Welt Rosa Luxemburg Conference in January,[4] which in no way encouraged violence, unleashed an anti-RAF and anti-Klar onslaught from politicians and the bourgeois media. What this made clear was that a prisoner’s right to express himself does not apply to Klar. In fact, it was turned into an exceptional case for the German justice system.

Rolf Clemens Wagner: In fact, this year, we’re experiencing two approaches to dealing with the RAF. One concerns Christian. Suddenly, the question of remorse for the victims of the RAF is central. A discussion about helping to “clarify” the actions has begun. Why now? I was pardoned a few years ago, and no one asked this of me. I did not have to show any remorse. There was no discussion of me having to help “clarify” the actions. Read the rest of this entry »

Announcement of relatives and friends of prisoners (Greece)

September 15th, 2014

Translated by Act for freedom now!

Announcement of relatives and friends of prisoners

We are the RELATIVES and FRIENDS OF PRISONERS. We who one day were violently deprived of the embrace, affection, protection, company the friendship of the people who the state has deprived of their freedom. We, because of the voting of the monstrosity called the law for high security prisons, decided to unite our forces, fighting with every possible means to support them.

Recognizing that historically no prison ever corrected anyone and believing in the complete abolition of this outdated institution, we stand in support to:

- All political prisoners, anarchists and communists.
- All penal prisoners who stand with militant dignity inside prison (not the snitches, smack dealers, cooperators of authority, members and preservers of circuits of violence).

Although factual support towards the prisoners can in the future gain, according to our forces, many forms, we begin with the following practices:

1. Publicizing laws and provisions which aim at the full attack of the state against the prisoners (law for C’type prisons etc.).
2. Following their judicial struggles (trials, transfers, release applications, hospitalizations) and publicizing every arbitrary method the judicial authority uses on them.
3. Condemning all sorts of arbitrariness of the correctional-police system and the general conditions of their detentions.
4. Intervening directly in matters concerning their health and the lack of elementary needs.

Every means and way of public projection and information will be used.

Rolf Clemens Wagner, a Life of Resistance (Germany)

September 15th, 2014

Former Red Army Faction member Rolf Clemens Wagner died on February 11, 2014.

Wagner had first become involved in underground armed politics in the aftermath of the RAF’s 1972 May Offensive in West Germany. Dozens of guerillas had been captured, and were being held in strict solitary confinement (in some cases, entire prison wings were emptied to isolate the political prisoners) and subjected to various forms of abuse. In the years following 1972, opposing the torture of solitary confinement would become a priority for a section of the revolutionary left, and when RAF prisoner Holger Meins died in a hunger strike in 1974, freeing prisoners by any means necessary was clearly on the agenda. As Wagner would later explain,

“In the period before 1977, freeing the comrades who were at risk was an absolute priority. They were being held in dead wings, and the first murders had already occurred: Holger Meins, Siegfried Hausner, and Ulrike Meinhof. The situation was extremely urgent. It was clear to us that freeing the prisoners was our most important and pressing objective. On the one hand, they faced a threat to their very existence, and on the other hand, we wanted them out.”

This is the context in which Wagner first went underground, joining a small group that had been established by Klaus Dorff, Waltraud Liewald, and Peter-Jürgen Boock, with plans to break RAF founder Andreas Baader out of prison. Read the rest of this entry »

Fire to Sodexo! Arson of company vehicle – Solidarity to Bernhard, Peter and Thomas of K.O.M.I.T.E.E. (Germany)

September 15th, 2014

From Actforfree, via an Italian translation by imprisoned eco-anarchist Marco Camenisch:

For almost 20 years company Sodexo has been the target of people like us, who are struggling against the racist and neo-colonialist system. It started in 1997, when Sodexo offered to take on catering and other services destined to refugees in the knowledge this would result in a huge turnover. Since then Sodexo has been internationally known as a company who became a big multinational operating in many countries under low cost management, i.e. by racially reducing human life to a question of figures.

After the justice sector was privatized in Great Britain, Sodexo took on the management of 5 prisons. In this case too, people without the status of citizens were put in the hands of private companies by the State in exchange of huge amounts of money. According to economy laws these companies gained total power in the exploitation of their resources. And they’ve been saving on human lives first and foremost (…)

Greetings to the rebels locked up in one of the British Sodexo jails, who rose up in March when 50 prisoners took control of an entire prison unit for a remarkable length of time, and to the group that gave us news of this and attacked the court of Yate with gas and petrol.

Actions against Sodexo were recently carried out also in this country: on 28/10/2013 and on 17/6/2014 unknown people set Sodexo vehicles on fire (1 and 2).

During a No-Border Camp in Brussels, a Sodexo building had all its windows smashed and another one was flooded with oil.

Following the abuses of those who want to govern migration in Berlin and elsewhere, we think it necessary to widen these practices of attack and at the same time to develop a strategy aimed at damaging the deportation machine well beyond symbolic gestures.

After the arrest of Bernhard of K.O.M.I.T.E.E., history is repeating itself and we all should take the occasion to gather new strength and knowledge. Here is our contribution in a beautiful night: we dedicate the arson of a Sodexo vehicle in Neukolln to Bernhard, Peter and Thomas, who almost managed to blow up a jail in Grunau 1995, following a string of deportations, and who had to go on the run until today; unfortunately Bernhard was arrested at the beginning of July 2014 in Venezuela and is awaiting extradition to Germany.

We agree with the communiqué issued by the comrades of the three, which we quote here: “What’s happening on the borders outside the EU every day, the super-armed Frontex apparatus, the inhuman conditions in German migrants’ detention camps and also the struggle of people living as clandestine demonstrate how courageous and visionary was the attempt of the comrades at putting an end to this practice of the system.”

It’s time we remembered the past: not only the K.O.M.I.T.E.E but also the Revolutionary Cells (RZ) who have given strong contributions to this struggle.

Let’s consider what has been done, let’s think of new things to do, new strategies for the struggle against state racism and exploitation. Let’s increase the pressure on the bosses and let’s make space to a new liberated world.

Fire to Sodexo and to all the exploiters in this world order that despises humanity. If people are dying it is our duty to act and to intensify the struggle against those who only care for profit and don’t give a shit of human lives.

Burning vehicles can only be small lights in the sky of resistance, many small stars form a constellation, all together they make a bright night.

Groups of Two or Three

September 15th, 2014

(From Die Lunte)

The north side of Paris consists of a large area of social housing. The old industrial area has gradually been compressed into the east side; in between, on the northeast side, the mansions and villas of the rich spread out.

The police guard the industrial works, the east side and the houses of the northeast. But they rarely dare to venture into the north side. There the night is dangerous. When the police do venture into the north side, it is at great risk and those who do so are not squeamish. If a youth does not stop when ordered to do so, a cop shoots, or if the youth is on foot, he will simply be run over by a patrol car.

Something happened, centered in the city quarter of Noisy-le Grand. Hundreds of people took to the streets, and not just young people but adults as well, and not just blacks. It was reported as several confrontations between the police and the people in revolt and a few burning cars. Then it was claimed that the situation had normalized.

But in the days that followed, completely different characteristics developed: people did not appear in the open on the street corners to demonstrate, but joined in the complicity of the night. They formed into groups of two or three people, hundreds of small groups for systematic attack. A high school was completely destroyed. Three occupational schools blazed.
