March 13th, 2013

We have received message from our comrades: “We have burned a big Ford nearby VDNKH subway station about two weeks ago. The car had a pass of Police ministry behind a windshield and it looks like a typical car granted for official of medium/high level. We proclaim solidarity with all our comrades prosecuted. And you, police pigs, should know that any of your aggression etc. against freedom fighters won’t be unrequited.”

Attack against Talvivaara mining company (Finland)

March 9th, 2013

Thursday 8.3.2013 a group of people gathered in front of Finlandia Hall [in Helsinki, Finland] to demonstrate their discontentment against environmental crimes done by Finnish mining company Talvivaara* while the company was having shareholders meeting.

At the same time we did a solidarity action at Talvivaara headquarters in Espoo.

We throw smoke bombs inside the corridor of the building and decorated the wall with anti-Talvivaara slogan.

Our action was in solidarity with all those who have been suffering of the operations of Talvivaara mine and those who are fighting against the company.

Also we want to express our solidarity to smallholder rebellions in Kulon Progon area in Java Island [in Indonesia] and Tukijo that is imprisoned by Indonesian state.

We are deeply sorry about extra heart beats we caused for the worker in the corridor.

* Finnish mining company having a huge open-pit mine in North-East Finland. For years the local people and activists have brought up the fundamental violation of environmental legislation of Talvivaara. In December 2012 the company had major leak of poisonous waste water into lakes around the mining area causing of large scale pollution and it has still serious problems to “clean” the production line – probably never succeed. Talvivaara is mining mainly nickel and zinc, but uranium as well.

Krasnodar: ‘Two Sequoias ALF-FAI’ set horse free in the wild (Russia)

March 8th, 2013

From an anonymous report:

“Russia, Krasnodar – Horse Set Free in the Wild

During our scouting journey across the country we happened upon a lonely stallion chained to a tree. We knew that it belonged to a horse-breeding farm that sells horseback riding tours to willing tourists. Since we had our tools of trade (never leave home without bolt-cutters!) with us, we quickly cut the chains and set the animal free.

Let the steppes of southern Russia be teeming with wild horses again!”

March 6th, 2013

This is a demo call out from a social activist group in Birmingham, UK.


Friday, 15 March 2013, 13:00. Wear Black
Police Headquarters Lloyd House.

March 15 has been a day of international action against police brutality around the globe since 1997. The specific date is significant because in Switzerland, on March 15, two children, ages 11 and 12, were beaten by police. M15 originated from the Black Flag group in Switzerland and from the Collective Opposed to Police Brutality in Montreal. People in countries across the world come out to the streets in March to express their rage against the police. In Montreal specifically, there has been fierce annual riots erupting from the depths of the dispossessed. This March 15, We encourage everyone to join the rest of the world in the streets the timing couldn’t be more appropriate. On this date 2 years ago the Police killed a British Reggae Icon David Emanuel aka Smiley Culture proved in court to be an innocent man and weeks later Birmingham man Kingsley Burrell dialled 999 for help and ended up dead 30th March 2011. Not forgetting unarmed man 36, Anthony Grainger shot and killed in a pre planned operation in Manchester on 3rd March 2012. Read the rest of this entry »

Venezuela – anarchist statement on the death of Hugo Chavez

March 6th, 2013

Neither mourning nor celebrating: time for social struggles to become autonomous!

When an illness becomes serious, when medical attention becomes a vehicle for myopic, politically motivated decisions and when a patient becomes drunk with power, it can only end this way. The strongman has died, and in so doing, he has initiated a substantial shift in the Venezuelan political landscape.

What used to be the regime’s greatest strength has suddenly turned into its defining weakness: it was all Chávez, and, without him, the only solution is to fabricate an absolute commitment to his memory and his plans for succession. The government’s true fragility can now be seen, a government which tried to demonstrate its “popular, socialist” character via a grotesque personality cult, a practice that has now been reduced to the empty invocation of spirits. The deceased himself is to blame for this outcome as the secrecy around his illness was propelled by the same motivations as the extreme centralisation of power around him, while the lack of ideological coherence amongst his followers has left them scrapping for crumbs. The high-level “rojo-rojito” [chavista red] bureaucrats and the upper echelons of the military are best placed to benefit, as they negotiate impunity for their various misdemeanours and corruptions.

Vancouver Solidarity Arson with Grand Jury Resistors (Canada)

March 6th, 2013

The fire still burns. With the news of the release of two of the three Grand Jury Resistors ( Matt and it warmed our hearts but also filled them with anger. The state has taken parts of their life they will never get back. We also have not forgotten about the third resister (Maddy) and all the other nameless ones.

So last night, we decided to send a message that the release of our comrades will not stop our attacks on financial infrastructure, government and all others who oppress and take away our freedom. An unsuspecting bank, CIBC, had a Molotov cocktail thrown at it. The flames brought new life to our minds and destruction to the bank and a sense of insecurity to the Vancouver Police and the banks investors that they will never be able to stop us and that our attacks will increase.

The fire will always burn. Last night, we let that fire burn a financial institution that profits off the lives of the workers and foreclosures of families homes. Let this inspire anarchists and other radical elements of Vancouver, Coast Salish Territory, to attack and to attack now. We cannot be stopped.

Love, to all comrades from CST Vancouver

On the killing of Sabino Romero (Venezuela)

March 5th, 2013

During the night of March 3, 2013 Yukpa Cacique Sabino Romero, well known for his defense of the rights of the Yukpa people, was assassinated on Chaktapa Highway, in the Sierra de Perijá (Zulia State). Since November 13, 2003 when President Hugo Chavez, speaking at El Menito, Lagunillas, announced the increase in carbon exploitation to 36 million metric tons per year in the territories inhabited by different native ethnic groups, Sabino Romero was one of the people from indigenous communities that mobilized to protest the consequences their land would suffer due to the expansion of mega-mining in their region. Sabino’s struggle focused on obtaining the zoning and title to the indigenous territories, for which he put together different mobilizations in Zulia State as well as in Caracas, using different means of struggle, among them direct action and occupation of indigenous lands in the hands of cattle ranchers.

Russia: Local police station is destroyed in Povedniki (Moscow region)

March 4th, 2013

In the night February 19/20 we attacked local police station in the village Povedniki (Moscow region). It was settled in non-residential building – so we felt free to act strongly. It is likely, that a good portion of incendiary has completely destroyed the contents of this enemy’s nest (we had no possibility to watch fire up to end).

Dear comrades! We see authorities unqualified, organized badly and act blindly. So it is time to concentrate on radical struggle and then you can damage the system stronger and go free longer. Join us!

Victory will be ours!

‘In The Belly Of The Beast’ by John Bowden

March 4th, 2013

Fyoder Dostoevsky, the Russian novelist and sometimes political dissident, once wisely observed that a good barometer of the level and quality of a society’s civilisation is the way it treats it’s prisoners, the most dis-empowered of all social groups.

There has of course always existed a sort of socially organic and dynamic relationship between prison society and the wider ordinary society beyond it’s walls, and the treatment of prisoners is usually an accurate reflection of the relationship of power that prevails between the state and ordinary working class people in the broader society. It is how political power is shaped and negotiated between the state and the poorer social groups on the outside that essentially determines the treatment of prisoners on the inside.

Jakarta: Claim of responsibility for shopping area arson by Anger Unit / ICR-FAI-IRF (Indonesia)

February 24th, 2013

There is no reason to step back. War continues as always and must be more violent each and every time. All of the infrastructures of the society are our targets and there are no excuses to let one still stand against the beautiful sky. All the buildings are the walls against our sight to see the stars, the same stars which our imprisoned and guerrilla comrades in other part of the world are also seeing.

Through the fire, we want to send our warmest greetings to the knights warriors around the globe who still carry on attacks as our revolutionary way. To the brave and dignified prisoners who kept their head up against the misery and cowardice of ‘reformist’ anarchists.

Last night (Friday, 22 February), we burned down another property of Society. We placed an incendiary of fire in the middle-class shopping areas in North Jakarta. We burn the shops as our sample and to once again call the individuals to create their own attacks –especially in Indonesia and South East Asia. We showed through practice that each individual can bring their anger into fire and gasoline without the specializations of elite units. We are not vanguards or the messiah to save the Society. We are the angry individuals who only want to burn down Society.

Only cowards –even self-proclaimed as anarchists– who only see the fire is rising and covering the sky with dark smokes and doing nothing. Cowards are the integral parts of the Society who are always waiting for the ‘right moments’ and trying to keep their life in the comfort zones. And we point out the cowards as our enemies and we will hunt you down also. In the future, we will not feel sorry if in our actions to attack Society, we are risking the life of someone.

From now, we will limit our revolutionary greetings to the comrades who in our judgements are revolutionary. We will not let our fire warm the ‘innocent’, ‘reformist’, ‘pacifist’, ‘formal and pro-judicial anarchists’, ‘facebook anarchists’ and other cowards. Our actions always are only for ourselves and our individualistic values and for the revolutionary comrades.

And through the fire, we send our love to the imprisoned comrades: Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, the 4 anarchists who are recently accused for double robbery in Greece, Alfredo and Nicola and other comrades who accused in Operation Thor, Ixodae, Mangifuoco, and similar repressions in Italy, to Gabriel Pombo da Silva and to Marco Camenisch, to Marcelo, Juan, Fredy, Ivan & Carla in Chile, to Henry in Bolivia, to injured one Tripa Lopez in Mexico, to Tukijo and to the insurrectionary prisoners behind state bars who always kept their dignity and revolutionary values. We also want to send our love to the comrades on the run: Felicity, Hans and others. Keep running and do not let the enemies catch you.

Love and revolutionary greetings to the individuals, cells and groups of Informal Anarchist FederationInternational Revolutionary Front. Let’s surround Society with our fires.

War continues until the collapse of the society.

International Conspiracy for Revenge
FAI – IRF

Black February: Message of Solidarity from some people of the ZAD and elsewhere (France)

February 24th, 2013

Message of solidarity from some people of the ZAD (Zone A Défendre) and elsewhere in France, an occupied area against an international airport and metropolisation project.

With pleasure, we heard of the reactions of solidarity against the evictions at Athens in December and January : United States, India, England, Canada, Australia, Japan, Chile… and also the numerous actions and demonstrations through Greece.

In split of contexts differences here or elsewhere, the same mechanisms of repression sweep down on all those who struggle against the imposition of what our lives should be. And who wants a liberty which have an other flavour than the sad liberty to survive in their international competition in silence. Read the rest of this entry »
