“From the land of the forgotten against oblivion…” by Olga Ekonomidou, imprisoned member of CCF (Greece)

September 11th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

The condition of captivity in which I find myself in for 4,5 years now as a vindictive and exemplary punishment has created a distance between me and outside reality, action. Besides, the purpose of imprisonment for those who fight against the existent is separation, deprivation, political isolation, moral annihilation. But there are always bars to break, either you walk in the monotonous sterile corridors of a “penitentiary” or you cross the decorated streets of consumption of prison-society. Now, within the prison cells of democracy, my need for freedom continues to give breath to each of my days. It’s my moving force, to think, to imagine, to organize, to act. The decision of total conflict with the existent, the power of individual choice enriched by experiences of collective action, are the ingredients that can penetrate the prison bars and high walls. Why in prison you don’t give up… you go on. You reorganize yourself and you fight. For 4,5 years I wake up in a bed in prison always a little after sunrise, although many times I liked sleeping more when I was out, I organize my every move, although outside the spontaneous often moved me, I analyze and judge the data (political and personal) of yesterday’s day alone, although outside I always shared them with comrades. For 4,5 years I wake up every morning feeling sure that I alone defined my participation in the war against any form of authority and that freedom is not given away… you conquer it yourself.

‘Keep on Rockin’ – Chapter 11 of the book ‘Radical Peace: People Refusing War’ By William T. Hathaway (USA)

September 11th, 2015

Keep On Rockin’

Chapter 11 of the book
RADICAL PEACE: People Refusing War
By William T. Hathaway

RADICAL PEACE is a collection of reports from antiwar activists, the true stories of their efforts to change our warrior culture. An American exchange student in one of my courses here in Germany contributed the following essay about how she became an anarchist for peace. Because of her activism she wishes to remain anonymous.

Jason was my boy-friend for a while in high school. It wasn’t a match made in heaven. Looking back, I think the main thing we had in common was that I wanted a boy-friend and he wanted a girl-friend. Other than that there wasn’t much between us, as we discovered whenever we tried to talk about anything. I broke up with him when he asked me to go rabbit hunting with him. We stayed friends, though, probably because since it was obvious we could never be a real couple, neither of us had hard feelings.

We both left town after graduation; I went to college, Jason went to the marines. Two years later we were both back home; I was on summer vacation, Jason was on medical leave after having half his leg blown off in Iraq. He’d been riding in a truck that hit a mine. Read the rest of this entry »

Ataque a concesionaria en Buenos Aires (Argentina)

September 9th, 2015

Nos intentan obligar a una existencia sumisa y cobarde en el nombre del progreso tecnológico el control social y una mayor inclusión en lo que a pertenencia al sistema se refiere.

¡Pero nosotros no queremos ningún progreso, atacamos su control y rechazamos de manera consciente su inclusión!

Elegimos vivir la vida por el filo del abismo y no por los senderos de la muchedumbre mansa que se arrastra mendigando al poder las propias cadenas que los amarran. Nuestras motivaciones siempre serán en primera instancia la dignidad, la coherencia entre lo que decimos y hacemos, ese goce de
comprobarnos coherentes con lo que creemos. También nos motiva la sed de venganza, una venganza que sentimos tenemos que cobrar prácticamente desde niñxs cuando nos encierran en sus centros de domesticación y luego a lo largo de toda la vida encerradxs en fabricas, cárceles, manicomios… bibliotecas “anarquistas”…

¡Despreciamos toda esa mierda! ¡Hay otros caminos lejos de esa porquería monótona y anuladora del individuo!

En este andar mayormente solitario pero constante es que el 4 de septiembre pasado colocamos un artefacto incendiario en la concesionaria de motos y cuatriciclos ubicada en la Avenida Entre Ríos esquina Rondeau, el cual lamentablemente no funciono como lo esperábamos. ¡Pero continuaremos, siempre continuaremos!

Nuestra intención es clara: fomentar y propagar el ataque a todos los símbolos (físicos y edilicios) que representan ese entramado difuso que es el enemigo.

Objetivos a atacar… sobran… depende de nuestra voluntad, de nuestra decisión.

A generar todo el caos posible ante la mierda electoral que se avecina y su competencia entre candidatxs por ver quien saca mas policías a las calles y quien gestiona mejor la miseria.

Fuerza a Sol Vergara, valiente compañera encerrada en las prisiones chilenas. Fuerza a lxs demás compañerxs anarquistas, antiautoritarixs, nihilistas y subversivxs encerradxs por el Estado en Chile, México, Grecia, Italia, España…

Con nuestrxs muertxs en la memoria…

EN/FR/IT/DE – ‘Concerning the New Memorandum and the Elections of 20 September’ by Nikos Maziois of R.O.- Revolutionary Struggle (Greece)

September 9th, 2015

Nikos Maziotis – FR

Nikos Maziotis – IT

Nikos Maziotis – DE

The 3rd Memorandum signed by the SYRIZA government marks the complete political bankruptcy of the left regime and the chimerical aspirations for a more “humane” capitalism. After taking office last January, this marks the collapse of the attempted Syriza management of the defeat of the popular social movements from the period 2010-2012. For those who had no illusions, this whole period until the adoption of the 3rd Memorandum represents simply a waiting period for the predicted backtracking, where the campaign promises to repeal or renegotiate the Memorandum and partial cancelling of the debt along with a parallel policy for the relief of the poor was first followed by the agreement of February 20 which extended the second memorandum, and then came (despite the disapproval of 62% of the voters in the referendum of July 5 rejecting the proposals of lenders) the third memorandum which is much worse than the measures rejected in the referendum.

Within a few months, Syriza crossed over its “red lines” in complete retreat and acceptance of the creditors’ demands, towards the acceptance of a Memorandum far more brutal than that which was voted by the previous Samaras government.

“First time left” [note: πρώτε φορά αριστερά- a popular Syriza slogan claiming that they were for the first time a left government in Greece’s history, as if they were somehow different from PASOK] and the total humiliation of the will of the social majority to get rid of Memorandum policies that make them serfs of the markets is unprecedented.

Evi Statiri to commence hunger strike on September 14th, 2015 (Greece)

September 9th, 2015

Evi Statiri, held hostage by the Greek state at Korydallos Prison for no other reason than being the life companion of imprisoned Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (CCF) member Gerasimos Tsakalos, has announced that she will commence a hunger strike on September 14th.

The announcement came not long after Evi’s latest appeal to be released was rejected by the judicial council.

Here are some roughly translated excerpts from a text by Evi announcing her hunger strike that was posted on Athens Indymedia website…

“The latest refusal from the judicial council in consideration of my release has only confirmed what I already knew from the first day that I found myself in the cells of counter-terrorism. My imprisonment is not just a personal matter. My imprisonment is the reflection of an overall repressive strategy aiming to dominate via fear and to satisfy the vengeful fury of law enforcement against political prisoners and all those whose values are not consistent with the culture of power.”

“I still find myself in prison for the unique ‘incriminating’ element that I am the wife of political prisoner and member of the CCF, Gerasimos Tsakalos. I am still in prison because I refused to sign their ‘certificate of social conscience’ and refuse to disown my partner and our relationship.”

“Anybody standing beside political prisoners may find themselves in the adjacent cell… Anybody who refuses to bow their head, silence their voice or lower their gaze towards the idols of power can be dragged in handcuffs and detained by the courts and their investigation offices. But the solidarity actions carried out last week showed that fear can rule, but it cannot reign in the hearts and minds of free men and women. I send a big thank you to all those who by their actions expose the dictatorship of lies and hypocrisy of justice that keeps me locked in it’s cells. Now a new battle begins… The dismissive ultimatum of the judges leaves me only one answer – the last resort of the captive human – a hunger strike for my release.”

“Monday September 14 I begin a HUNGER STRIKE against fear and injustice.”

Ataque a circulo de suboficiales de la policia federal en Buenos Aires (Argentina)

September 9th, 2015

El día jueves 24 de agosto a eso de las 2 am colocamos un artefacto explosivo de fabricación casera compuesto por una botella plástica de medio litro rellena de pólvora negra , mechas detonantes y de iniciación. Adheridas a un cigarrillo que sirvió como retardo, todo únido a dos camping gas (gas butano) en la entrada de una de las sedes del circulo de suboficiales de la policía federal argentina ubicada en Alberti entre Chile y Mexico del barrio porteño de Balvanera. A pesar de que las cámaras sigan nuestros pasos, contamos con buenos amigxs y la determinación e imaginación creativa para evadir la seguridad de esta paz social.

Con este gesto nos solidarizamos con las y los compañeros anarquistas fugados y encarcelados en distintas partes del mundo. Que son ejemplos de lucha y convicción!

El poder es quien ejerce el monopolio de la violencia, la jurídicamente justificable, no solo la policial (la económica, la mediática, la social, el discurso democrático).

Por eso ESTAMOS con los amotinadxs, con los fugadxs, con los pibes y las pibas encerradas en los penales y psiquiátricos de argentina (y el mundo) “comunes” y anónimos que se rebelan, con los “suicidados” asesinados por el servicio penitenciario.


Hagamos practica la libertad, enfrentemos la resignación. Exaltemos la vida!

Saludos y ánimos.

Algunos anarquistas y nihilistas

“Beyond right and wrong” by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – FAI/IRF (Greece)

September 8th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

“I don’t believe in rights. Life, which is all a manifestation of incoherent forces, unknown and unknowable, rejects the human artificiality of the right. Rights were born when life was taken away from us. Indeed, originally, humanity had no rights. It lived and that was everything. Today, instead, there are thousands of rights; one could accurately say that everything which we have lost we call a right. I know that I live and that I desire to live. It is most difficult to put this desire into action. I am surrounded by a humanity that wants what everyone else wants. My isolated affirmation is a most serious crime. Laws and morals, in competition, intimidate and persuade me. The “blonde rabbi” [I.e., Christ or Christian values.-translator] has triumphed. One prays, one implores, one curses, but one does not dare. Cowardice, caressed by Christianity, creates morality, and this justifies baseness and begets renunciation. [...] “Society, on the other hand, modest and clean in appearance, but horribly infected with gangrene throughout its body, makes me vomit, fills me with horror and loathing, kills me.” How I envy the great Bonnot! “Il me faut vivre ma vie!” * / “It is necessary that I live my life”” Bruno Filippi

(An Italian anarcho-nihilist who was charged with several armed attacks and was killed by a bomb he carried, on September 7th, 1919, when trying to place it at the “Nobles Club”, headquarters of the wealthiest Italian businessmen)

Beyond the right and the wrong…

For Anarchy
The most important and nicest things are spoken in the simplest way. Today, though, the reality of our lives is far from simple.
So, we often note that the more complicated the words (and boring, at the same time) that “specialists” of political delivery and the “revolutionary” rhetoric alchemists use, the more uninvited their oversimplifications are.
The theorist “rebels” construe the world through the tyranny of their “obvious truths”. Their whole rhetorical calcification and their wooden words, that lulls to sleep through their undeviating dogmatism, comes to transfer “social revolution” to an oversimplified version of the eternal fight between the “good” people and the “bad” state, between the “right” and the “wrong” fairytale.

But if things were that simple, why hasn’t this fairytale, for centuries, come to an end, with the triumph of the “good” and for all of us to “live happily ever after”? Read the rest of this entry »

Multiple hits of anarchist sabotage and attack in various cities – June to Sept 2015 (Italy)

September 8th, 2015


2nd of September, MODENA – Anonymous claim: “2nd of September, Saliceta street – Some cables of a Wind phone mast are set on fire. Let’s sabotage the infrastructures complicit with the cop control. Freedom for Pippo, Tommy and Andrea accused of having set the house of a fascist on fire. Solidarity with the comrades hit by the requests of special surveillance in Trentino and Sardegna. Fire to the gears of ordinary repression”.

31st of August, PISA
- A 28 years old guy threw a molotov to the entrance of a building that was hosting – in the past – a Lega Nord (xenophobic party) headquarters. Arrested by the Carabinieri [paramilitary police] thanks to the cooperation of citizens who witnessed the scene. He declared to be anarchist and to have attacked the Lega Nord because it’s a fascist party. He’s now held in the jail of Pisa.

19th of August CREMONA – A phone mast is set on fire and a spraypainted message is left on the place: “Revenge for Emilio”. Emilio is a comrade from Cremona who fell into a coma after a fight with the Nazis of Casa Pound and is now slowly recovering. The people from the communist social centre CSA Dordoni in which Emilio is involved, immediately took distance from the action declaring that “Antifascism is a serious issue that we need to address urgently. To set a phone mast on fire doesn’t go in this direction”. In the same night also the car of Gianluca Galli, the boss of Casapound Cremona, goes on fire and is completely destroyed.

29th of July PARMA - During the night a sabotage hits the TAV (high speed line) railway between Bologna and Milano. Around 4 am the cables in the manholes between Fidenza and Fontanellato were set on fire, causing troubles to the circulation. No claim of the action was released.

July GENOVA – A telecommunications mast was set on fire in a village close to Genova, an anonymous claim is released on the 13th of July:

Without any doubt we could describe present society as a technocratic system in which, at a global level, reckless science and the products it launches in the market dominate and regulate life. Since their very existence, the corporations keep their dominion over the Planet thanks to the States and international institutions (ONU, UE, FMI, BCE).

The hyper-technological society is the perfect society to fulfill the two main necessities of the Power: profit and social control. Thanks to science and technology, promoted as modern deities, profit doesn’t know any more limit: from military devices to the incredible quantity of useless products put on the market. Also social and life control cannot but spread even more every day, from the simple cameras to the use of nanotechnologies. People, already deprived of any autonomy and own will, are introduced to the fabulous world of science through a partial and fictitious access to technology.
With the fantasy of improving the quality of life, the only real effects are a reckless production, the wasting of the minds and of our own abilities, the erasing of real emotions, therefore of life itself.
All of this happens while in front of our eyes nature gets devastated to build huge projects that will allow to move these goods even faster and to trace them even more easily. All of this happens while television, in the general indifference, broadcasts images of populations wiped out and starved to exploit the available resources to increase the production of these goods.

For once we simply decided to elude control and threaten the profit of the technocratic society.

We set fire to the power source cables of a telecommunications mast property of Italsite Spa, a company specialized in this sector in Italy and Europe.


11th of July MODENA – Anonymous claim: “11th of July – Cabins and cables of a phone mast are set on fire against repression and telematic control. From Baltimora to Frankfurt, from Milano to Cremona, the State is the one who devastes and plunders. Revenge for Emilio! Ciao Soledad”. The phone mast was so damaged by the fire that it had to be cut down and removed.

10th of July PADOVA – Fifteen trucks loaded with GMO animal feed, property of the company Mangimi Veronesi, are set on fire and are completely destroyed. Incendiary bottles are found under the trucks, and a spraypainted writing that says: “No GMO, no farming”. The Coordinamento Zero OGM which has run since 2014 a campaign against this company for its use of GMO animal feed immediately dissociated itself from the action.

6th of July UDINE – The local headquarters of the fascist group Casa Pound are stained and spraypainted with messages like “You’ll burn”, “Dirty fascists”, etc.

24th of June FIRENZE – Anonymous claim: “Florence, in the night between 24th and 25th of June we set on fire a Fiat 500 of the carsharing service of ENI, Frecciarossa and Vodafone in via del Bisarno. Solidarity to the imprisoned anarchists”.

Solidarity with Dariusz ‘Jus’ Brzeski – Hambach Forest Struggle (Germany)

September 7th, 2015

6 weeks ago our comrade Jus got taken from us at the eviction of Remi’s Tower, a huge barricade built in honour of Remi Fraisse, who got killed by the freakin cops.

The first 3 weeks Jus was on hunger strike and as a reaction to that the cops told him he did not have a lawyer registered (which he had) and put him in a isolation cell, where it is hard to sleep because they check every 15 minutes if you are not dead yet by turning the lights on and off. All the letters he receives now get checked and it takes about 2 to 4 weeks for them to get to him. He is in prison for 6 weeks and only had two visits. It is extremely difficult to arrange visits, because there has to be an interpreter at all times, and they want audio-visual surveillance. Also his phone privileges are restricted to only his lawyer (even though everyone else can call whoever the fuck they want) and even about that they are being assholes. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Critique of the Socialists defending Islam’ by Serkan Engin (Turkey)

September 5th, 2015

”The criticism of religion is the prerequisite of all critique.” Karl Marx

To take sides with Islamists in the name of democracy, to support the existence of Islamic sharia is to maintain its objectives to organize, strengthen and take power which, in case it succeeds, due to its intrinsic structure, due to the theology of Islam, will take all of your freedom from you, hang, imprison and exile. Just like what happened after the ”Islamic Revolution”.

Islam in itself is the enemy of democracy and freedom. You can see the concrete examples in countless incidents happening everyday in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Somali and Nigeria. Never be deceived by the ignorant persons who tell you that ”It’s not what Islam really is”, because Islam is precisely that. The Islamic law sees stoning to death, homophobia, cutting off hands as punishment, pedophilia, women who have been taken prisoners as war booty being sex slaves, woman being a second rate person who solely exists to serve her husband as a commodity, necrophilia being legitimized based on Muhammad’s ”lying next to one of his wives” which implies that he raped the corpse, defending the right to have sexual intercourse within 6 hours from the moment of death based on the acts of Muhammad considered as ”tradition”, to kill the ones who it labels as ”heretic”, rape their women, extort their property and land as it’s right and duty; so anyway you cut it, Islam is a crime against humanity. And crime has nothing to do with freedom. Read the rest of this entry »

“Our Day Will Come” : In solidarity with Evi Statiri and CCF – Imprisoned Members Cell (Book)

September 2nd, 2015

This booklet is being re-edited to correct numerous errors in grammar and spelling. New version coming soon…

Attending to the solidarity call to Evi Statiri we share with you a book which speaks about what was triggered after the arrest of the fugitive Christos Xiros, the discovery of an escape plan by Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Imprisoned Members Cell; the subsequent manhunt against comrade Aggeliki Spyropoulo and her detention with relatives and friends of CCF comrades, and finally, the hunger strike for over 30 days in which they put their lives at risk.

This book also contains a prologue by CCF- Imprisoned Members Cell.

We are interested that the experiences of CCF`s escape attempt and subsequent hunger strike could be transmitted as an expression of anarchic ability to build our offense in an autonomous way, as a part of our defense and dissemination of every indomitable and antagonist attitude against Power.

The most of the text were taken from the related anarchic webs.
Also, this book has a Spanish version, with translations made by us and other comrades.

Comrades interested in the edition of this book on their own territories, could write to our e-mail.

Without another word, we share this book with you.

Kuala Lumpur: Police raid anarchist space Rumah Api (Malaysia)

September 2nd, 2015

On 28th August (Friday), over a dozen police with automatic weapons and K-9 unit attacked Rumah Api (social center/house project in Kuala Lumpur) during a concert on that night. The police raided the house project and raid everybody during the concert and also trashed the living space of people who live there without any warrant or solid reason for the raid.

We all believe the raid were conducted due to the connection of Bersih 4 Rally which happen on the next days (29 and 30th) which is totally insane since the organizer of the concert, participants, and Rumah Api have little interest to join or even support the rally, due to our political stance on the issue of election and voting system.

The state use Rumah Api as the scapegoat of recent event of attack on banks and multinational corporations in KL for the past 2 years. So far, they found nothing to link us with that events. The police seize all the musical equipment at the concert hall, seize 2 computers of people who live there, one smart phone, artwork, and books belonging to people who live there. The police said they search the building for any weapons or explosives that can link us to terrorism. Read the rest of this entry »

Bristol: Direct action against estate agents – CJA trashed (UK)

September 2nd, 2015

Award giving in recognition of services to landlords and their rights.

We proudly presented bricks through windows of CJA estate agents in Southville on the night of 31st August. All windows smashed and the international squatter symbol painted on their wall. Because despite the ban on squatting houses everyone should have a decent home.

CJA have showed real resilience and single mindedness to make a stand for maximum profit regardless of the tough conditions faced by tenants everywhere. In a letter to Bristol landlords in March this year they encouraged landlords to hike their rents and cynically take advantage of the housing crisis. Because the crisis is for landlords and property developers another business opportunity. They then arrogantly ignored a campaign by a local community union to hold them to account. So we found another way to encourage them to see the costs of their actions. Thousands of us are trapped in overcrowded, over priced and chronically undermaintained and decaying rented houses. We constantly struggle to pay the rent under the ever present threat of eviction and homelessness. Gentrification and colonisation of our areas pushes rents ever higher and forces us further out. This is social cleansing and it is a very profitable business. For greedy landlords and estate agents like CJA, decent, affordable homes don’t come into their sums. It’s all about investment opportunities and ruthless profiteering. Meanwhile, there is a huge increase in homelessness and the hostels are full to bursting. We don’t have to take this.

Let’s fight for a world without landlords, where people’s homes are not for the profit of the rich.

ATM Sabotage in Torreón for International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners (México)

September 2nd, 2015

From Contra-Info [+ pics] via It’s Going Down:

On August 30th, we sabotaged with paint an ATM bank, “Bancomer,” in response to the “International Week in solidarity with anarchist prisoners”, and also to commemorate the black memory of our comrade Sebastián Oversluij (Pelao angry). This act was performed also to the surprised looks of passers-by; before the futility of “the bodies of order.” This street is the most guarded by dogs of the state, not only by the steady pace of patrols from both police and military, but also from the presence of security guards from ITESM.

Ever so rabidly do we act; an act that demonstrates our hatred for their money, their economy, their social order … to their civilization. This act was not to protest any “improvement” for the “people.” This action was carried out by anarchic individuals in anti-social solidarity and complicity with our comrades in affinity who are kidnapped by the state; to bring the anarchic idea to it’s ultimate conclusion. Forward comrades, destroy all prisons! We will burn your civilization!

A strong embrace of solidarity to the companion Tamara Farias, vengeance arrived!

Comrade Sebastian Oversluij presente …!

Freedom for all anarchist prisoners

The ongoing war …

For anarchy!

Volos: Banner about the case of Evi Statiri (Greece)

September 2nd, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

In the morning of 02/09, we did the least we could do by hanging two banners in the city streets, seeking to send a sign of solidarity to the imprisoned Evi Statiri but also a sign of complicity in the face of the impending struggle about her release in case the six-month pre-trial detention is extended by the Court of Appeals on 03/09.

Evi Statiri is held hostage for six months now, accused of being a member of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire only because of her relationship with G.Tsakalos and the emotional blow her imprisonment can inflict on CCF’s morale, which was not bent from the discovery of the escape plan and the arrest of anarchist A.Spyropoulou, trying to make them repent. The vengeful fury of the judicial mechanisms and particularly of the appellate magistrate E.Nikopoulos, who constantly rejects the bail applications of Evi despite the provision passed after the recent hunger strike of the CCF, does not stop there, as even after her release, the mother of G. and Ch.Tsakalos, A.Tsakalou, who was arrested along with Evi, finds herself in a special form of exile in Salamina, from where she is not allowed to leave.

Strength to E.Statiri, A.Tsakalou, the comrades of the Cell of imprisoned members of CCF and A.Spyropoulou

Zero tolerance for the judicial mafia and every form of authority

The war rages on…

Until the total destruction of every prison

Until total liberation

Call in solidarity with Evi Statiri (Greece)

August 31st, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

On September 3, the Judicial Council is going to decide on the extension of the pre-trial detention of Evi Statiri.

In the context of the nationwide call for action and solidarity which has been organized by comrades for the 2nd of September, we invite all anarchist individualities, direct action cells and comrades to sabotage normality and to destroy the clock of power. To brake the silence with counter-info actions (posters, flyers, banners, slogans) and to end the immobility of passivity with actions and sabotage.

On September 2, let us challenge the world of organized apathy with hostile gestures of insubordination.
