‘Commando Lambros Foundas’ burn nine cars of “Deutsche Telekom” in Berlin (Germany)

April 12th, 2012

From directactionde:

8 April 2012

“Last night, the night to Sunday, we left an Easter egg in front of the door of “Deutsche Telekom” at Storkower Straße, as a fiery sign of our solidarity with all comrades world wide that are fighting against State and dominion.

Just some days ago a senior shot himself in the head, directly on Syntagma-square in Athens. The reason for that is, that he couldn’t pay his debts any more and the only way he saw at all was to committed suicide. Since the beginning of the crises more than 1500 people committed suicide in Greece. Companies like Deutsche Telekom are responsible as well, that the people do not see any other solution than suicide.

Pressurized by cuts in wages, pensions and holidays, that have to be carried by all layers of population, a huge insecurity spreads all over the land. We hope that, with this action, we were able to bring the anger of the people to the heart of European capitalism. The world wide actionday “M31″ is the beginning of an international solidarity.

“Deutsche Telekom AG” is one of many multinational companies, that try to take profit out of the crises to establish themselves on the European market. One example is the Greek telecommunication company “OTE”. The Greek state reacts because of the pressure of the EU and the IWF, that are pushing the privatization of the rest of the state-owned companies and to connect this with financial helps. A short while ago the Greek state owned 50% of the company and now had to sell 40% to “Deutsche Telekom”, that further on has the right to pre-sale the state-owned parts of “OTE” that are left.

The privatization points out the first consequences for the employees of “OTE”. Recently the “Deutsche Telekom” reported, that they will mark some changes for their new employees with the red pencil, beginning with the cuts on the Boni, as well as automatically stopping the contractual increase of the wage. Further on they will offer “voluntary” retirements. These cuts should help to lower the costs for wages down to 160 Mio euro. Job cuts are the necessarily results. Already in October wage cuts up to 11% were dealt with the unions.
But there is resistance inside the OTE-staff. 2011 some independent workers called out for a general strike on the 7th/8th of May.

Further on the “Deutsche Telekom AG” got a monopole position on the international market for telecommunication. Especially in relation to gapless surveillance the Telekom is a pioneer. In some federal states the daughter company T-Systems got delegated to build up the digital communication of police and fire fighter forces. Just some examples that encouraged us to visit this concern.

Viva la Anarchia!
Freedom for Stella Antoniou and all the other imprisoned comrades!

Letter from Tomo on the recent crackdown against anarchist comrades (Italy)

April 12th, 2012

From contra-info:

Thursday, March 29th, during the night, by order of the general prosecutor’s office of Perugia and the pubblico ministero (public prosecutor) Manuela Comodi, diverse house searches were carried out against four anarchists in various cities (Pisa, Ravenna, Genoa, etc.); different divisions of the carabiniers [Italian paramilitary police] were mobilized, including the Anti-Crime Section from Bologna and the Anti-Subversion and Technical Investigations units of the Special Operations Group (Raggruppamento Operativo Speciale, ROS) from Rome.

At 4.05, I found myself with six carabiniers that plunged into the house (2 local, 2 ROS and 2 of the aforementioned Anti-Crime Section) in search of documentary material, useful material for assembly of explosive parcels, and so forth. All this happened because of my affinity relationships with the comrades of Culmine and my comrade who is involved along with me in the project ParoleArmate. Read the rest of this entry »

Athens: Statement from Michalis Nikolopoulos, imprisoned CCF member (Greece)

April 11th, 2012

CCF imprisoned member Michalis Nikolopoulos read the following political statement on the 13th day (Monday, April 2, 2012) of the 2nd ‘Halandri’ Case trial of the Conspiracy Cells of Fire. The statement concerns the attack by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire against the home of Gerasimos Arsenis. You can also read summaries of the Halandri case court reports from TIOJ.

Translated by Actforfreedomnow!/boubourAs:

Gerasimos Arsenis is a recognized officer of authority. In his long political career he has served as minister of Economics, Defence and Education, while he has also run for the leadership of PASOK. In a few words, across from us is a person of power whose decisions contributed to the formation of today’s reality. No one can forget the infamous “Arsenis law” which showed once more, that schools are nothing more than intensive laboratories of serene and trained subjects. Read the rest of this entry »

- For a self-managed, voluntary and anti-authoritarian school. Death to the bosses’ world.
- Against the domestication of the individual, resistance and direct action.
- Youth, if you do not fight, no one will fight for you.

Brief communique:

As anarchists of nihilist tendency, we vindicate revolutionary action as a tool for our political-emancipatory project, we propose subversive urban guerrilla war as a form of struggle in the streets spaces, likewise for gain territory in our lives, in the face of the control of the authoritarian State.

We are revolutionary anarchists who reject and disregard the ranks of classic anarchism, likewise we reject the ancient strategy (end in itself) of accumulation of forces. We break with the old schemas and -isms, and we function by means of our inquietude and our personal I (which we temper with collective labor in order to accomplish according to vital goals, this being a false problem and not a contradiction at all).

As youth uprooted with expectations of wanting to free ourselves, we not only see our enemy in capitalism and the State, we also see it in the humanizing values of society, in its defense of the indefensible, therefore, we also seek to dis-articulate it. We are the uncontrollables, those who give free reign to socio-political destruction, those who see in the precarious and wild youth, in the immigrant youth and and youth of lower social class, the destabilizing explosion adequate for dismantling the bosses’ world and to entomb the State, we see adequate capacity for creating a tension of civil-revolutionary war by means of the tactic of the anarchist urban guerrilla and the conflict between the oppressive State and the revolutionary youth. We are working for the articulation of a constant influence in our spaces of the streets, that can create the situation of socio-political war against civilization, of razing to the ground capital’s schemas without any consideration.

We want to forge a generation of wild youth, disposed to destroy the city and the capitalist economy. From the Barcelona suburbs, we make a call to the rest of the youth for you to assume the nihilist branch of anarchism, to investigate your perceptions and to unite, under a black anti-authoritarian fist, let’s subvert the old order. Let’s go beyond.

Reciprocal solidarity:

Although at the time the actions did not have a concrete spirit of solidarity from the start and only sought to spread revolutionary action and revolt, we want to change the initial plan and to dedicate all of these actions (except the solidarity of April 6 with Stella Antoniou) to Gerasimos Tsakalos, Panagiotis Argyrou, Christos Tsakalos, Giorgos Karagiannidis, Alexandros Mitroussias, and Kostas Sakkas who at this time have started a hunger strike. Comrades, we send you a raised fist and a fervent revolutionary greeting.

Death to social peace!

For the return of terror to its gears!

Anarquistas nihilistas.

Solidarity letter with the anarchist comrades and with Culmine, from Conspiración Acrata (Mexico)

April 11th, 2012

from liberaciontotal, transl waronsociety:

It is the hour of the social tragedy!
We will destroy laughing.
We will set fires laughing.
We will kill laughing.
We will expropriate laughing.
And society will fall.
The fatherland will fall.
The family will fall.
All will fall after the free man is born.
The one is born who has learned the Dionysian art of joy and laughter through tears and sorrow.
The hour has come to drown the enemy in blood…
The hour has come to wash our minds in blood.
Enough, enough, enough!
As the poet transforms his lyre into a dagger!
As the philosopher transforms his probe into a bomb!
As the fisherman transforms his oar into a formidable ax.
As the miner comes up from the unbearable caves of the dark mines armed with his shining iron.
As the farmer transforms his fruitful spade into a war lance.
As the laborer transforms his hammer into a scythe and cleaver.
And forward, forward, forward.
It is time, it is time — it is time!
And society will fall.
The fatherland will fall.
The family will fall.
All will fall after the Free Man is born.
Forward, forward, forward, oh joyful destroyers.
Beneath the black edge of death we will conquer Life!
Laughing!
And we will make it our slave! Laughing!
And we will love it laughing!
Since the only serious people are those who know how to be actively engaged laughing.
And our hatred laughs…
Red laughter. Forward!
Forward, for the destruction of the lie and of the phantoms!
Forward, for the complete conquest of individuality and of Life!

RENZO NOVATORE – TOWARD THE CREATIVE NOTHING
1922, ITALY.

A few days ago, the security apparatus at the hand of the Italian State perpetrated a repressive raid against anarchist comrades and the Culmine blog, a raid carried out in various cities and towns of that country, resulting in 4 comrades arrested under accusations that are the most common accusations in Italy and under which many other comrades have been arrested and incarcerated in the past, in similar repressive raids. Accused of Terrorism and subversive association, our comrades find themselves in the clutches of the State and need to be vindicated in the same way that those anarchist comrades in affinity in Italy have shown themselves in solidarity with the struggles and the prisoners in other parts of the World.

Athens: Letter from CCF imprisoned member Christos Tsakalos, who has been on hunger strike from April 8th (Greece)

April 11th, 2012

‘When one does not die for the other, then we are already dead’
[Tasos Livaditis]

I am not a humanist and therefore will not talk like a humanist. I place myself on the side of the anarchists of praxis. In the battle for a free life without leaders and minions, often a price to pay is the prison. This price has been imposed on me a year ago, since I am imprisoned–CAPTIVE by the State. Captive but not defeated; because for me, as an anarchist urban guerrilla, prison is a temporary stop but never the terminal. During this whole year, I did not allow prison to tame or to ‘correct’ me, or to subdue my body and my memory through the dead repetition of the time-jailer.

From the very first moment, however, a ceaseless psychological warfare and a special detention regime were launched against all comrades who participate in the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. Read the rest of this entry »

Athens: CCF imprisoned members Gerasimos Tsakalos and Panagiotis Argirou declare hunger strike (Greece)

April 11th, 2012

‘The tigers of wrath are wiser than the horses of instruction’ [William Blake]

Each of us knows that to get his life in his hands, he must refuse the dialogue and the illusions of democracy and come into conflict with the Power, having his knife between his teeth.

From the first moment of our imprisonment, we chose not to surrender to the dictatorship of the penitentiary system. From the first moment, the State and the antiterrorist unit’s Tagmatasfalites (security battalions) sent specific commands to the prison service, in order to give special treatment both to us and the other CCF comrades.

Europol und das Gespenst des Anarchismus (Europe)

April 7th, 2012

German language article about a meeting of the Europol, which is a conference against “Euro-Anarchists”, called at the request of the Italian authorities. The topics for the repressive meeting include Val Susa Struggle in Italy, the Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI), ELF/ALF & Militant Ecological Struggle, No Border Camps, Counter-Summits etc.

Written by Matthias Monroy 22.03.2012 >> Click for original with links-reference

Mit immer mehr Maßnahmen verfolgen EU-Institutionen grenzüberschreitende linke Bewegungen. Dem BKA haben es angebliche “Euro-Anarchisten” besonders angetan

Seit 2002 ist die EU-Polizeiagentur für die Verfolgung von Umwelt- und Tierrechtsaktivismus bekannt. Jetzt bekommt die Kriminalisierung internationaler politischer Kampagnen eine neue Facette: Eine Konferenz von Europol nimmt unter anderem verkehrspolitische und antirassistische Aktivisten aufs Korn. Um die Kompetenzen der Behörden zu erweitern, werden die Ausgeforschten mit Absendern von Briefbomben gleichgesetzt. Auch der EU-Geheimdienst ist mit von der Partie.

Europol organisiert eine Konferenz zu anarchistischen Bewegungen in der Europäischen Union. Dies berichtete ein Sprecher der EU-Polizeiagentur letzte Woche in der Ratsarbeitsgruppe “Terrorismus”. Demnach soll die Veranstaltung am 25. April stattfinden. Über den Ort wurden keine Angaben gemacht. Gewöhnlich finden derartige Zusammenkünfte aber am Sitz der Agentur in Den Haag statt.

Anarchist shot by the police in Viña del Mar (Chile)

WOS note: Beyond this initial announcement from Bengalas’ comrades which appears below, there are several more texts and updates about the comrade which we will translate soon. At the moment, we are too busy to present all of it. The additional texts and updates may appear as edits to this post, or separately. We send an embrace full of fire and health to Bengalas.


from vla, transl waronsociety:

Yesterday, March 30, in the afternoon, our brother was in a cyber cafe updating our page [Solidaridad Anarquista] and on finishing up, he left the cyber cafe and to someone appeared to steal an older woman’s wallet and the police came in pursuit; since these uniforms are such sacks of shit that they’re tired after running only 15 seconds, they chose to use their service weapon and a shot struck; it so happened that this bullet hit the Anarchist brother Bengalas’ chest, at only 9 meters away, the bullet entered through the chest, exiting through his back; our brother did not have time to react and fell to his knees leaving a large pool of blood around him; thanks to some anonymous persons who were in the area, they stopped the hemorrhaging and applied first aid, calling an ambulance and stopping the uniforms from approaching the brother’s body so that they could not take any evidence nor change anything in the area; the compañero was taken to the Viña del Mar Hospital and at this time has still not regained consciousness.

Letter from the Imprisoned Members Cell of the CCF to Culmine & Parole Armate concerning the recent raids (Italy)

April 6th, 2012

Translated by Act for freedom now! / boubourAs:

For a few days now has begun one more oppressive operation against anarchist comrades in Italy. Some comrades were arrested, interrogated, some got conditional discharges and others, house arrest.

The cops raided houses in the areas of Pisa, Chieti, Genoa, Catania, Ravena and elsewhere. The operation included the Carabinieri of Perugia, the Antiterrorist and the team of Technical Investigations of Rome. Amongst the arrestees, were also 4 anarchist comrades who were persecuted for “criminal organization of a subversive nature”. From the confiscated objects from the houses of the comrades, this time the cops showed special interest to their email communication with Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Marco Camenisch and the members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. During the investigation the email account of Culmine and Parole Armate was broken into and copied. By the cops.

Don’t say that its over…

Through these few words we send a comradely signal to all those who participate in Culmine and Parole Armate helping in the translations and the spreading of communiques, texts and letters from prison for the spreading of insurrectional anarchy.

Right now the Black International of the anarchists of action is a fact. Nothing would be the same without them. Especially this last year an international anarchist galaxy is created by individuals and autonomous groups who, whether support the FAI/IRF, or not, the attack the existing, communicate with their concerns, exchange thoughts.

They are the comrades with no name, the friends without a face, they are all of us who wore a hood and became bombers of authority symbols, bank robbers, saboteurs of their normality, and arsonists of social peace. Through Culmine and Parole Armate we share experiences and close relations with these unknown comrades from around the world.

This sharing is a moment of the continuous attack against the dogmatic thought, the mass culture, the society of useless information. Through Culmine and Parole Armate blossoms the real polymorphic dialogue of the anarchist insurrectional internationalism, not just in the words, but in practice. Because words fill the pages just like bullets slide into the chamber of a gun.

Ready and armed to give their own battle. Words that hit the normality of daily life, words that escape from the prison cells, words that are whispered conspiratorially before the moment of the attack, words that turn into actions, words that don’t beat around the bush, words clean like our look and conscience.

This wind of thousands of untameable words and anarchist actions visits numerous times the crossroad of Culmine and Parole Armate, for a moment, so it can explode and create again thousands of new moments of chaos and anarchy.

Culmine and Parole Armate is the secret harbour of chaos where words mixed up with actions and thoughts disguised into gestures go back-and-forth continuously in indeterminate and informal formations of attack. By stealing and rephrasing the words of the comrades Parole Armate we can say that the project of Culmine and Parole Armate is a result of the will of some anarchist individuals who deny the meaning of the official syntactic team and instead of that invite all those are interested in the spreading of insurrectional anarchist texts, to create relations and situations which liberate and are ready to be materialized outside the virtual frame of the internet.

For us the anarchist undertakings of Culmine and Parole Armate were created from the thought and desire of some comrades who discussed, managed from some hands which liberated meanings and disputes and belong to whoever considers them a piece of the individual and collective struggle for anarchy and chaos.
No matter what happens because of the attack of the Italian police, Culmine and Parole Armate will remain for ever a meeting point of comrades and friends, an unmade map of the Black International of Anarchists of Action.

Until we meet again

Solidarity to the comrades who are persecuted by the Italian state FOR EVER IN BATTLE FOR THE REALIZATION OF THE BLACK INTERNATIONAL OF THE ANARCHISTS OF ACTION

PERSONAL INFERNO – For a clearing of solidarity

April 6th, 2012

‘… I don’t want and don’t give solidarity,
Because I’m convinced that it is yet another chain
And because, like Ibsen, I believe that the one who is most alone is the stronger.’

Renzo Novatore – I’m also a Nihilist

PERSONAL INFERNO
For a clearing of solidarity
Invitation to Egoist nihilist action addressed to the comrades hit by the law of the State issued by society under the disguise of nun Manuela Comodi*.

No prayer!
No sign of abating!
The rebel who triumphs on his EGO knows, and he knows how many abysses his existence has. Alas! ‘There are too many abysses for the lonely ones’ Zarathustra used to say

No prayer!

No profession of faith or creed for the lonely one!

No fanatic religious solidarity for the lonely one!

No prayer or rosary!

This is the path, the non-path!
So rise up you single vagabonds of the Ego!
Do not kneel down!
If you die your soul will die even before your body!

Do not pray!

‘I am a guardrail on the flow: those who can, take me.’
So your EGO speaks!
‘But I am not your crutch’

Do not trust man Christ recommended! I add, not even God!
Trust yourself!
Do not beg!

To the comrades of Culmine and Parole Armate

Lublin: Solidarity action for political prisoners (Poland)

April 5th, 2012

325 receives and transmits:

In the last days of March, we attacked with paint three ATM’s, each belonging to another bank. The growing climate of state repression, must meet with our overwhelming response. An uncompromising attack of capital, taking away from us the remaining social gains, can no longer remain unanswered.

Violence is an integral part of our lives, concealed behind a mask of abstract social relations. Pushed to the ghettos of poverty, filling the prison cells, reside in the slums of third world. We have no illusions about it. We will come from darkness of the night and attack state and capitalist targets, every time more violently and with a stronger belief in the rightness of our actions.

We also address our words to those who are staying on the moderate positions, trying to censor different concepts of fight. Our dreams remain illegal, WE remain illegal. There is no place for us in capitalist machine. We don’t find ourselves on another miserable demonstration. We don’t make long-term political plans. We don’t ask the chiefs and rulers for small compromises. We want immediate change, looking for each other, creating cells capable to provide adequate answer to our daily humiliations.

We dedicate this symbolic action to prosecuted fighters of the Revolutionary Struggle and the Conspiracy of Cells Of Fire. Comrade Tortuga, who remains in dungeons of Chilean state. Eat and Billy, captive by the Indonesian State. Stella Antoniou, facing health problems, and all political prisoners from around the world.

Honour to comrade Lambros Foundas, who fell dead, by cops’ bullets.

Florence: Let’s start again – On the response to the arrests (Italy)

April 4th, 2012

Translated from informa-azione.info

We usually don’t give reports on everything we do but after the latest events we think it is important to inform the comrades on the situation in Florence, the problems we have to face and the potentialities we have to develop. To start with, the expulsion orders don’t seem to have intimidated anyone and they will be deliberately ignored. Released late in the morning on Saturday, three dear comrades are now forced to remain in their respective towns as they are subjected to mandatory residence: Sandro and Filomena in Pontassieve, and Nicola in Pistoia. As these places are not far from Florence we will be able to see them every day and surely they won’t be abandoned. Read the rest of this entry »

Communiqué for bombing at ESADE business school in Barcelona (Catalunya)

April 3rd, 2012

From Liberación Total (March 27, 2012) via This is our Job:

Street protests against the attacks of capitalist States on our living conditions have recently spread throughout Europe. Despite the strikes, actions, and massive demonstrations, and despite the broad movements that haven’t even expressed any grand revolutionary aspirations beyond the mere defense of minimum basic necessities, the States have responded with indifference.

Appealing to confusing economic formulas, numbers, statistics, and abstract concepts, those States have tried to locate the problem’s origin in inaccessible, metaphysical realities. However, the origin and causes of our daily problems have no metaphysical foundation whatsoever. Poverty, exploitation, repression, and systematic abuse are the results of very concrete structures, of specific decisions taken by specific people who have specific interests.

One such structure is called the College of Business Administration and Management (ESADE). Nestled in the middle of the wealthy Pedralbes neighborhood, this school produces a stream of executives who—day after day—order, manage, and benefit from the destruction of the lives of the great majority of the population. Each year, the school propels social predators into the world, and for the rest of their lives they dedicate themselves to plundering and trampling on this country’s exploited from their institutional (like the presidency of the Generalitat itself, occupied by Artur Mas) or corporate positions.

Facing a context of intensifying exploitation and instability, and facing the new, deeply serious attack brought on by the recent Labor Reform, we have decided to respond by pointing out those responsible for the situation we are suffering through. Therefore, last Wednesday, March 21, we decided to carry out an attack that forced the interruption of the school’s functioning and caused its evacuation. The action was specifically designed (through the location of the device’s placement, the quality and quantity of explosive material used, etc.) to not cause injuries. Our goal, apart from singling out an entire social network of exploiters, was to sabotage the offensive, insulting social peace prevailing in the wealthy neighborhoods, which are totally hermetic and oblivious to the anguish and suffering generated by their decisions and privileges.

Having reached this point, we pose a question for reflection. Since the press have noted that students, professors, and area residents got away unscathed, how can we describe the everyday experience of those who live in poor neighborhoods? If being evacuated from your school for a few hours means getting away unscathed, what should we presume to call what thousands of evicted people feel—those who sleep in the street, those who are psychiatrized for not bearing the pressure, those who are brutally beaten for protesting, even peacefully? What do we call the suffering of the excluded, tortured in prisons and Immigrant Detention Centers? What do reporters call what the families of people murdered by the police have experienced, experience, and continue to experience?

If we have given them a “scare,” what are they doing to us?

We, and more people every day, know full well who the real terrorists are. They are the ones whom the press define as honorable people, the ones who have their luxurious offices on Plaza Sant Jaume or Avenida Diagonal, the ones who live in mansions in Pedralbes and Sant Cugat and send their sons and daughters to ESADE. They are the ones who, even though they have it all, dare to overstep their own legal limits and steal more of what they theoretically get according to their own rules.

We warn that if the State isn’t willing to withdraw its attacks, then we won’t be willing to withdraw our resistance. If they are prepared to bring back the policies and living conditions of the last century for us, then we will be prepared to revive the weapons and tactics of that era for them. And if they believe they will go right through us—not just our group, but all of society—without resistance or rebellion, then they don’t know the history of our people.

STRUGGLE IS THE ONLY PATH.

Cardiff: Report from Prison Noise Demo 31/3 (UK)

April 3rd, 2012

A report from the Cardiff prison noise demo held on 31st March in solidarity with prisoners by local campaigners against the prison system and I.P.P. sentencing.

At 3:30pm on Saturday 31st of March around 25 local residents, children and anarchists gathered outside a local leisure centre for a noise demo at Cardiff prison, to show support for the prisoners and raise awareness about I.P.P. sentencing, a type of sentence that has destroyed lives in the local community. They came accompanied with black flags, a sound system and two large banners (reading “Abolish I.P.P.” and “Solidarity”). Read the rest of this entry »

Florence – Update on the arrested anarchists (Italy)

April 1st, 2012

Translated from informa-azione.info
We receive from the Pistoia anarchist comrades:

Last Thursday [29 March] the bloody Florence cops assaulted and arrested three comrades, Nicola, Filomena and Sandro and accused them of a series of bullshit such as resistance and causing bodily harm. This morning [Saturday 30th March] the judge decided to make a favour to the Florence Digos [Italian political police]: as he obviously couldn’t keep the comrades imprisoned, he opted for house arrest in the comrades’ towns, two in Pontassieve and one in Pistoia. It is clear how this operation aims at eliminating all ‘elements of disturbance’, that is to say those who are active in the city. As power can’t (for the moment) do whatever they like with Anarchists, they try their best to silence them, in this case through house arrest. On the contrary they did do whatever they liked with some immigrants, who were beaten to death in the police headquarters of Florence [the comrades were arrested while distributing leaflets on this event].

Solidarity with the comrades hit by repression, fire to all prisons and death to the authorities!
