Statement from Revolutionary Organisation – Informal Anarchist Federation, Indonesia Section (Indonesia)

July 6th, 2011

325 receives and transmits:

Bandung, Indonesia – Cells of International Conspiracy for Revenge, a few days ago, have claimed responsibility by spreading leaflets surrounding the ATM BNI firebombings. The leaflet is almost the same tone as in Makassar and Manado:

PT Indomining (Bima) has been brutally repressing the local population, Jogja Magasa International wants to evict 30,000 farmers in Kulon Progo. Farmers in Takalar are facing the threat of land-grabbing. These actions are carried out in a brutal way, including shootings, terror, sexual harassment as well as the various forms of repression that we never hear about in the mainstream media.

That’s not surprising because these capitalist-bureaucratic companies do not care about anything except making their wallet thicker!”

“Our attacking of an ATM (bank) is an important target, because banks are always involved in financing natural resources and the repression of the people in the name of capital! We have no intention of injuring anyone, the destruction of property is not violence! No mercy for the forces of repression! No mercy for the State and Capitalism.”

May the Social War escalate and we forgot to mentioned comrades in Greece, Italy, or anywhere else but you all know our hearts are with you.

Got Ist Tot – Free Association of Individualist-Communists.

Salute to: Revolutionary Organisation – Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. The Revolutionary Struggle. The Chilean insurrectionists. Giannis Dimitrakis and Polykarpos Georgiades, our hearts are with you!

Long Live the Rebellion and stay free. And with this statement we claim to join the RO-FAI, Indonesian Section.

Anti-info / Subversive / Network

June 29th, 2011

(a data network for direct action)

(a media framework for social war)

(the refusal of fixed territory)

” … So we went into creative obscurity in order to re-emerge more capable, more dangerous.”
Sect of Revolutionaries

325 24/7 newswire is slowing down considerably, but will remain open for online contributions from those in struggle through our contact page. 325 will continue to report important, unnoticed and marginalised resistance news that has not been published elsewhere. Our distro section will also continue to be slowly updated with a number of interesting classical releases and new publications.

This temporary hiatus is firstly due to the Autumnal release of 325 #9, the free yearly PDF download of the international magazine of social war and anarchy, which is printed hard-copy in numerous places by nameless revolutionaries world-wide. Secondly, this hiatus is generated by a period of organisational and methodological reflection and consolidation, as our decentralised network enters a new phase of subversive publishing and auto-production. 325 #9 will be available as a free online download and in paper format soon..

For continuous 24/7 resistance news, view the web-portals of our affinities projects, (actforfreedomnow, angry news, bite back, blackblog, contra-info, culmine, hommodolars, informa-azione, this is our job, war on society, viva la anarquia, etc).

Information war is our gift and weapon, always aiming to develop the actions, concepts and explorations, until freedom, never ceasing.

We affirm as open, the methods of affinity group action along informal federative principles, for new individuals to take, practice and experiment as theirs : propaganda by deed; revolutionary anarchist illegalism; destructive negation of the false society; embrace of new technologies of communication, publishing, distribution, attack and subversion; mutual aid; voluntary co-operation; free exchange; etc.

Over the last few years, the informal insurrectional tendency has developed lines of translation and transmission of methods of attack and news of repression leading to international revolutionary solidarity campaigns and a global linking of worldwide struggles. 325 was set up to facilitate such global networking. The 17th January call by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire for an Informal Anarchist Federation (Global) / International Revolutionary Front was one such successful result of this globalisation of resistance.

Still, there is much to be done for our street level spreading of the project. We must be disciplined with ourselves because technology and information are also viruses that can ensnare us and threaten to absorb us into their own stratagem in which we end up replicating a cybernetic version of reality. We have looked at the work of 325 and although we respect what it has achieved, we also see that as the social war escalates, we have to develop our organisational capabilities, if we are going to be true to the responsibilities we feel we undertake by speaking of social war and revolution.

From this pregnant pause we send our respect and solidarity to all the prisoners of the war for total freedom, and all the anarchist/autonomous/anti-civilisation direct action groups who risk their lives and their freedom in the attack against dominion.

For global co-ordination of our anarchic forces towards the aim of mass insurrection against the capitalist system and the environmental collapse it has created.

For the continuation of our destructive revolutionary project.

Nothing ends – Everything begins.

Antifascist Prisoners In Need Of Support (UK)

June 29th, 2011

Updated From Leeds ABC:

More than two years ago a strutting neo-Nazi was put on his arse. Without even the evidence to pursue a conviction for ‘common assault’ the British State launched an all-out offensive against militant antifascists, smashing doors in all over the country and making more than 20 arrests. In view of their lack of evidence against those arrested the CPS have chosen to pursue ‘conspiracy’ charges, a calculated gambit which has so far led to the imprisonment of 6 antifascists. The imprisoned comrades are guilty of nothing more than being antifascists, they have been fitted-up by the State and deserve our fullest possible support. Read the rest of this entry »

‘The Sun Still Rises’ by Conspiracy of Cells of Fire : Imprisoned Members Cell (Greece)

June 29th, 2011

Download: Click for PDF Zine from Dark Matter Publications.

From culmine via this is our job:

May 30 saw the publication of ‘The Sun Still Rises’, a pamphlet containing a chronology of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire attacks and the following new text by the group:

The Sun Still Rises

Knowledge chooses its project, each project is new and chooses its moments, each moment is new, but simultaneously emerges from the memory of all the moments that existed before


—The Interior of the Absolute

1. The Beginning

The Conspiracy of Cells of Fire Revolutionary Organization didn’t begin its activity from out of nowhere. It wasn’t as if a straight line had cut through space and time. It was a future crying out from the past. The Conspiracy comprised a collective synthesis, connecting the backgrounds and viewpoints of all who participated in it and drawing valuable conclusions from past experiences of subversive projects and attacks we took part in.

It represented our desire to take a step further, not to climb some ladder of informal hierarchy that fetishizes violence and its methods, but to simply advance, move forward, and explore new perspectives, making the shift from a “bunch of friends” to an organization, from the sporadic to the consistent, from the spontaneous to the strategic.

Text by the members of the R.O. CCF Christos Tsakalos and Giorgos Nikolopoulos about the Letter-bomb that was sent to Berlusconi (Greece, Italy)

June 29th, 2011

“Through the sadness of endless mediocrity that suffocates us from everywhere, I console myself that somewhere in a closet several stubborn people struggle to counteract the spoilage.” [Odysseas Elytis]

We are summoned to appear before the Prosecutor’s Office of Bologna, Italy, on June 28th in order to participate in a preliminary investigation in regard to the ‘punishable offense under Articles 110, 280 of the Criminal Code (attempt with terrorist and subversive purposes)’ of the inflammatory parcel’s postage addressed to Silvio Berlusconi. Moreover, according to the official notification of the Prosecutor’s Office that was delivered to us via fax in the prisons in which we are detained, Berlusconi himself is called to attend the process as ‘victim of the punishable offense.’ Read the rest of this entry »

‘Resist to Exist’ by Walter Bond, imprisoned anarchist comrade (USA)

June 27th, 2011

Walter Bond was arrested on July 23, 2010 and has plead guilty to the arson of the Sheepskin Factory in Colorado and openly admits that he is the ALF (Animal Liberation Front) “Lone Wolf”. Bond has plead not guilty to federal charges. He has also been indicted in Utah for the arsons of the Tandy Leather Factory and Tiburon (foie gras restaurant).

Resist to Exist

I am an anarchist.

I’m not the politically-correct hipster anarchist.

I am not the rhetorical anarchist either.

Reading dry accounts of the various factions of anarchism has never held much interest for me. I am an insurgent, an opposser. Why? Because I was born that way. When I was in kindergarten my teacher, Ms. Whirly, had a parent/teacher conference with my mom. I remember her saying something about me being a very bright young man but that I had serious problems with authority and one day it would get me in a lot of trouble. I do, and it did.

I came to find out that school doesn’t want you to be a ‘bright young man’. Serious questioning is the enemy of primary and secondary schools’ indoctrination of youth. While my grade school teachers prattled on and all the kids answered in unison, I sat at the back of the class reading about dinosaurs, mythology, and astronomy. It made me feel hopeful that places or times existed that were far from here. far from Iowa’s Aryan education. times and places where humans weren’t the center of the entire universe.

Letter from Rami Syrianos about political isolation at Ioannina Prison (Greece)

June 27th, 2011

From culmine via this is our job:

Rami Syrianos, arrested on January 31 and charged with robbing an auction in Thessaloniki, recently released the following letter-

Shortly after being transferred to Ioannina Prison, prison authorities began a process of selective censorship of the printed matter (books, pamphlets, printouts from the Internet, newspapers, fanzines) being sent to me. Their excuses were that it was “being done for the good of the prisoners” (who evidently shouldn’t be be exposed to such reading material), that “writings that defend terrorism can’t be allowed inside,” and other such imaginative notions, accompanied by demonstrations of Power (without which they would never be able to do what they’re doing) via statements like: “I administrate this prison, and if I feel like it, I won’t give you anything.” Read the rest of this entry »

Misinformation regarding Anti-fascist comrade Petr Silaev (Belgium, Russia)

June 27th, 2011

325 receives and transmits the following message from ABC Moscow:

As a member of ABC-Moscow I want to note that the information that’s been circulated through Russian and Belarus-speaking anarchist sites (and, recently), through international sites of our movement, is not accurate.

Our friends in Europe have reported that Petr Silaev, who was supposedly arrested in Belgium, is free (at the moment, at least). Read the rest of this entry »

Communique from Luciano Pitronello Incendarity Cell in solidarity with prisoners of the world (Argentina)

June 24th, 2011

From culmine, translated by war on society:

During the international week for total liberation we went to the Banco Santander Rio at Av. Gaona and Cuenca in the Flores Neighborhood, we doused two ATMs with gasoline and we left an incendiary device that then burned and destroyed them.

We share this action with those who take the decision to go on the offensive for human, animal and earth liberation.

Remembering Mauricio Morales.

For the freedom of Walter Bond, Marie Mason and Eric McDavid in the United States; Silvia, Billy and Costa in Switzerland who next month will be judged by the authorities of that country; 10 months into the bombs case, solidarity with the anarchists in Chile.

The war against this society continues in all places, in Italy, France, Spain, Mexico, etc.

Imprisoned, the comrades of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire do not collaborate with their enemies and struggle until the end.

For those fallen in combat against the forces of social control in Argentina, prisoners in the Ezeiza, Marcos Paz, Devoto prisons…

For all those who conspire in the extension of permanent conflict against the powers that dominate our lives. A fraternal greeting.

For the proliferation of attacks against authority and its properties.

Until the last animal is free, we are all prisoners.

Long live direct action that breaks with those established in the system.

To not wait; the spectacle must end; to be participants in what we desire.


Luciano Pitronello Incendiary Cell

Communique announcement of new C.C.F./I.R.F. cell ‘Core of Vandalisms’ (Greece)

June 24th, 2011

From Actforfreedomnow:

4 June 2011

The following text is dedicated wholeheartedly to the Anarchist Revolutionary Theofilos Mavropoulos who with his unrepentant attitude confirmed that the Revolution does not retreat even when fired at. Also we do not forget his comrade who escaped with a cop car. Finally, we express our unlimited respect to the two comrades but also our great sorrow for the fact that the cops were not mortally wounded.

On the 4th June and while the formal amusement of the Saturday night was climaxing we carried out a new revolutionary plan. We gathered, put on our fullface masks and carried out a raiding attack with sledge hammers on T-Bank on the cross road of Panormou and Achaia street, “transforming it into a summer shop”*, in order for it to suit the climate of the days. Our target was selected based on the following criteria: We wanted to strike a target in the centre of Athens and not in an accidental spot. Firstly, its situated near the central headquarters of the Police, so that the whore cops can receive the message that, no matter how much this area is “theirs” and how many patrols they might make, our plans are always one step ahead, (keep in mind you little bastards, your patrols are being charted). And on the other, it is near the area of “mass amusement” of the shops on Panormou street and thus, were exposed to the eyes of many the broken windows.

In this way we had the possibility to show to a lot of people the way that we “have fun”.

Above all however, we carried out this attack in order to stamp an agreement. We include our own network of fighters in the wider network of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire as well as the International Revolutionary Front. Ready to give it all to the Revolutionary Crime and Widespread Revolutionary Guerrilla, we are also an internal enemy of the regime. A permanent internal threat. All these because we are tired of the void of life that is offered to us by this World through the civilization that is promoted by its society. We despise the relations of Authority and the misery of Economy. We are tired of the standardized behaviors. We are disgusted with the psychiatric clinics, prisons, schools, work, religion, but also with all the slaves that are subjugated and maintain all the above. We ought to turn AGAINST those who hurt Freedom. Not only in paper but by putting our wishes into practice on a daily basis.

We know that this decision of ours is difficult and holds for the unlucky and careless gigantic consequences, since we are going against the most difficult of opponents. With the holders of the army and science. Our heretical brains however cannot be cured neither with imprisonments neither with threats. The revolutionary remains for ever free. Until the end. Thus, with a clear conscience, we also put our hand in order to develop the International Revolutionary Illegality. Our next plans are already being examined and soon will be materialized.

LONG LIVE THE REVOLUTION – LONG LIVE THE CONSPIRACY OF CELLS OF FIRE

P.S. 1: Our unlimited solidarity to comrade Luciano Pitronello Schuffeneger who had a bomb explode in his hands that he had manufactured for an attack.

P.S. 2: A warm handshake to the “priest” who in 1997 in Albania tortured and killed a cop, set fire to another one and was arrested recently. Bless his hands!

Attack on G4S Security Company (UK)

June 24th, 2011

New attack in Nottingham against the murderous Group 4 Security / G4S. No Borders – No Prisons – No State. Originally posted anonymously on IMC UK, whose admins took it down:

24 June 2011

Last night shortly after 11pm a G4 security guard was followed home from his local pub and before he reached his door was quickly beaten. Later that night two G4S vehicles had their windows smashed and exhaust pipes destroyed using expanding foam.

We carried out this attack knowing full well that there would be those who would criticize it for being the work of thugs out for cheap thrills. And we knew there would be others that would state that the attack of individual workers is ineffective and a poor choice of a target. To this we say, everyday G4S guards play their role in the institutional violence carried out against prisoners around the world, occasionally a story creeps out that this guard or that guard got carried away and a prisoner has ended up in hospital or has been murdered. But these stories are not exceptional, the beatings and the violence are the way of life of G4S guard, it is their role in this sick society. We acknowledge the systematic effects that mean working class men and women wish to find work which is stable, secure and financially rewarding, we merely wish to encourage the idea that working for G4S is the work of a mercenary. That in choosing to work for G4S you are choosing to be on the side of the racist, patriarchal system which in the end benefits only those from the elite governing classes. The guard who was attacked last night knows where we stand, as he was given a copy of this message, hopefully he’ll pass it along to his colleagues.

The two vehicles were attacked, because we are filled with hatred for G4S and everything they do, we know it’s not the G4S staff who are solely to blame, but the giant corporation which profits from the imprisonment, torture and murder of our brothers and sisters.

We remember Jimmy Mubenga, an Angolan man murdered by G4S.

This action is in solidarity with all who resist the way the things are, including the anti-fascists currently being oppressed in Nizhniy Novgorod, Russia.

Action Days in Solidarity with Nizhny Novgorod Anti-Fascists : June 24-26 (Russia)

June 21st, 2011

At the present moment the detectives of the Anti-Extremist Center of GUVD (General Directorate of Internal Affairs) of Nizhniy Novgorod Region, are fabricating a criminal case against Artem Bystrov, who was arrested on April 26,2011. He is accused of the article № 213 part 2 (hooliganism committed by a group of persons on preliminary arrangement by hatred or hostility toward a particular social group).

Two of the other suspects have not been arrested yet. It is worth noting that the victim himself — a nationalist called D.Redkin, doesn’t press any charges to the people arrested on April 26 and refuses to take part in the process.

The case was filed seven months after an alleged violent attack. It was filed by pressure on the victim and the witness. The investigation is proceeded with gross violations and falsification of evidence. For example, during the searches the membership cards of a non-existing organisation “RASH-Antifa” with photos and serial numbers, evidently made by Center “E” (Anti-Extremist Center) detectives, were planted in suspects’ homes.

Solidarity Attack on Developer in Waterloo, Ontario (Canada)

June 21st, 2011

June 17, 2011

In the spirit of June Eleventh and inspired by recent actions against development in the Southern Ontario region, anarchists paid a visit to a condo development site on Belmont Ave. in Waterloo. The presentation building was painted in class war graffiti, all of the windows broken, and a nearby construction machine was covered in paint stripper and had its windows broken.

The Tricar Group (Real Estate Development & Property Management) are creating more space for the rich across Southern Ontario by building luxury condominiums in Waterloo, Guelph, Sarnia and London. Condos attract more yuppies into the cities where we live, increasing property values and pushing out the poor, broke, and working class people.

This action is in solidarity with Eric McDavid, Marie Mason, struggle in Greece, and all long-term anarchist prisoners, against the expansion of capitalism.

Condos are Class War!

-Anarchists

Ps. Brianna Waters: your betrayal disgusts us.

Letter from Errikos Rallis, accused member of the C.C.F. (Greece)

June 21st, 2011

Once someone approached a priest and asked him to confess in order to receive a pardon of sins. When he was asked of the sin that he committed he replied “simple slandering”. The priest said that he cannot do anything about this. Then he wondered how can a rapist or a murderer receive a pardon and not him. Read the rest of this entry »

Letter from the CCF about incidents in the trial of Dimitrakis soli-action (Greece)

June 21st, 2011

ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE REVOLUTIONARY ORGANISATION – CONSPIRACY OF CELLS OF FIRE – On the 10th of June there was the trial in the Evelpidon courts of the case of the occupation of the radio station Sport FM that took place in 2007 in solidarity to anarchist Giannis Dimitrakis, imprisoned for a bank robbery.

From Actforfreedomnow:

On the 10th of June there was the trial in the Evelpidon courts of the case of the occupation of the radio station Sport FM, that took place in 2007 in solidarity to anarchist Giannis Dimitrakis, imprisoned for a bank robbery. The incidents that happened that day and which concern the defendants, among which are also members of our organization, but also those gathered in solidarity and relatives, force us to speak publicly. The blows that the members of the R.O. C.C.F. Panagiotis Argirou, Damiano Bolano, Mihalis Nikolopoulos received, and also some of their co-defendants, from the EKAM (special forces) and the masked special guards of the transfer escort as well as the attack of the riot-cops on those gathered proves what cowardly pigs they are.
