Brescia: Claim of the attack on the police training centre and communiqué of Cellula Anarchica Acca (Italy)

January 14th, 2016

During the night between 17th and 18th December we placed a device (8kg of gunpowder) at the police ‘training centre’ in Brescia. A symbolic action intended to cause material damage. We chose that time so as not to harm people indiscriminately.

With this action we began our projectuality of Anarchist attack as Cellula Anarchica Acca (C.A.A) in affinity with the black international, and add ourselves to the call for action for a BLACK DECEMBER.

We are joining this trajectory because:

We like the idea of an international coordination of anarchists for direct action.
Our idea of ‘complicity’ goes beyond groups and factions.
We are using the means we consider appropriate, seeking growth in the minimal details of the action. In that sense this action is nothing in terms of material damage, but it is important in arming our self-organization, especially at a time when we sense great resignation among anarchists in Italy.

We attacked one of the armed wings of the state. Cops from all over Italy and other states are trained at this ‘school’. This is also a little signal against war.

We are in solidarity with all those who struggle against all states and capital.
Our thoughts go to the many comrades who are repressed, locked up, tortured or killed at the present time and in the past. In solidarity with all prisoners in struggle.

This is a signal of complicity to those who are locked up: To Alfredo for shooting Adinolfi; to Chiara (NO TAV anarchist) for the attack on the construction site; to Nicola Gai, who with Alfredo kneecapped the Ansaldo managing director, which is the least he deserved; to Nico (NO TAV anarchist).

To Monica and Francisco, who are resisting in the Spanish prisons with simplicity and dignity.
To Tamara Sol, who showed us how to avenge our comrades.
To Nikos for his simple and humble contribution to a call for struggle.
To the comrades of the CCF.
To the comrades who struggle in prison and outside.

Reply to the text entitled ‘Under pressure’.
The main push to action is not pressure that makes us explode, but unlimited passion that liberates.
That is what pushed us to arm ourselves that night in Brescia: The passion of trying to free ourselves from exploitation, that of a life that deserves to be lived, the passion for freedom.
Passions are desires transformed into action, the most wonderful gestures of life in the face of the pervasive banality of the spectacle. It is this passion without limits that exploded that night in Brescia.

The questions we put to who wrote that text are:
Do actions not speak for themselves?
Why talk about actions now?

We didn’t like reading ‘this is the pressure that exploded that night in Brescia’, concerning that action, even it was written in ‘good faith’. We didn’t live it like that. Actions per se don’t always speak for themselves, and this is proof of it.

Anarchist Cell Acca

Athens: CCF escape case trial set for February 15th 2016 (Greece)

January 12th, 2016

February 15th: Trial date for the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire escape plan – Prosecution against relatives of political prisoners

The trial concerning the plan of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire comrades to escape from Koridallos prisons has been set for February 15th. A total of 28 people are accused in this trial. Conspiracy of Cells of Fire comrades have taken responsibility for the escape plan from the outset, defending their choice as a means to continue anarchist struggle.

However, this time the judicial mafia has experimented on our comrades by applying an insidious and vengeful blackmail against them.

In addition to making the heaviest possible indictment against several of the accused, whose relation with Conspiracy of Cells of Fire members was solely limited to friendly contacts, they’ve prepared new guillotines.

The inquisitor Eftichis Nikopoulos (special appellate judge against terrorism) and the judicial councils that followed, have also put forward for trial relatives of political prisoners: Athena Tsakalou (the mother of CCF members Gerasimos Tsakalos and Christos Tsakalos), Evi Statiri (the partner of Gerasimos), and Christos Polidoros (the brother of CCF member Giorgos Polidoros), on charges of “membership in the terrorist organisation Conspiracy of Cells of Fire”!!!

Athena Tsakalou and Evi Statiri were originally remanded in March 2015, and then broke out of captivity.

Athena was released a month after her arrest, following the hunger strike of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire members and anarchist comrade Angeliki Spyropoulou. Six months later, Evi was also released from prison, following the hunger strike undertaken by her and her partner Gerasimos Tsakalos.

During the two hunger strikes, a multifaceted movement developed against the judicial coup, expressing solidarity by means of gatherings, banner drops, occupation of buildings, acts of sabotage and incendiary attacks…

Nevertheless, after the release of Athena and Evi, the solidarity movement gained half a victory.

Judge-executioners “granted” them a crippled freedom. Athena was exiled to Salamis Island, and Evi is restricted to one kilometer from her home by a “freedom distance-meter”.

At the same time, they have been prohibited from any communication with their relatives, thus isolating them behind invisible grids.

We see this strategy of Power of isolating political prisoners being broadened, as is the case with the recent visitation ban against Revolutionary Struggle member Nikos Maziotis [whose friend and comrade was recently prohibited from visiting him in prison].

Similarly, the judicial mafia continues its sorcery against relatives of political prisoners, having remanded Maria Theofilou [the partner of Giorgos Petrakakos].

On February 15th, Power will once again try to erect its guillotines against relatives of political prisoners.

They’ve made their intentions crystal clear by now. According to the accusatory dossier, which is over 10,000 pages, they’ve chosen to call only 20 witnesses to the stand (half of whom are anti-terrorist police officers), with the purpose of fast-tracking proceedings; it seems convictions have already been issued…

February 15th marks the beginning of a new wager for people in struggle, negators of Power, people in solidarity… Our wager is to nullify the Power’s vindictive plans, stand side by side with the comrades, and continue what we’ve started… To subvert the judicial coup and stand against the prosecution of political prisoners’ relatives.

Because this trial prefigures future persecutions. What is being tested today against relatives of political prisoners, tomorrow will be tested against friends, people in solidarity, people in struggle…

For this reason and all the reasons in this world, once again we are preparing to venture into new battles against the laws of cops, judges and the Power’s priesthood.

Our quiver contains many arrows, such as the recent memory of gestures against the fascist persecutions of political prisoners’ relatives, but also the fresh traces of actions for Black December, that have strayed from the silent paths of social peace.

In the face of challenges posed by the State and judicial mafia, we respond with the challenge of insurrectionist action. With the trial on February 15th as a point of encounter, to oppose the persecution of relatives, let’s make this New Year beginning our own restart – with international call-outs, assemblies, counter-information, demonstrations, occupations, acts of sabotage, attacks – for the complete overthrow of the existent. With not even a single moment wasted.

“Stone, iron, wood can be broken… but it is impossible to break a determined human being with a conscience.”

Solidarity with Conspiracy of Cells of Fire comrades and anarchist Angeliki Spyropoulou

Against the prosecution of political prisoners’ relatives

Athens: Arson attack against 2 banks by FAI-IRF for Black December (Greece)

January 12th, 2016

Athens, 04.01.16: We take responsibility for the arson of the Alpha bank on Akadimias street and the arson of a National Bank ATM in Peristeri. Both actions were carried out as part of the Black December called by the imprisoned comrades N. Romanos and P. Argirou.

Although this came in late for the timeframe of December, we hope that the Black December will not end. We plan to continue on with diverse actions. We are not going to write much else because the time has come for actions not words.

LONG LIVE ANARCHY!

PS: All of you who rushed to negatively criticize the call for Black December are just looking for reasons to ‘politicize’ your inaction.

As long as the flames of rebellion burn within us, Black December will always be burning everywhere!

Dealing with “counter-terror” cops at the airport (UK)

January 12th, 2016

via RabbleLDN, also see – “Schedule 7″ – Important Advice for Anarchists Travelling To/From the UK.

Bristol Anarchist Chases Away Counter-Terror Police

Today at Stansted Airport, plainclothes police officers pulled aside a travelling anarchist (Tim from Bristol) and seemingly sought to coerce him into becoming an informant with a combination of intimidation, veiled threats, and offers of free alcohol. But when he started recording the officers on his mp3 player they quickly terminated the exchange and made a sharp exit.

He believes he was targeted by counter terror police because of his Anarchism, stating: “Anarchism is about ordinary people standing up to the rich and powerful – exactly what the police are there to prevent. These people claim to be protecting us, but they spend most of their time blacklisting trade unionists, spying on activists and harassing ethnic minorities.”

Here’s his full account of what happened today:

“As I was leaving the EU e-passport gate about 1pm today, I was approached by a man who came out from behind the desk to the left. He was a similar height to me, with short light brown hair/beard, and a light northern English accent. He said “Hi Tim, I’d like to have a word with you. I think you know what this is about”. I got my phone out and called a friend as soon as he started speaking. I told him I had a phone call which I needed to take. A man who had approached in the mean-time from the right, wearing a grey suit-jacket, asked me to turn my phone off. I repeated that I had to take the call. When my friend picked up I asked them to call my solicitor. Read the rest of this entry »

“Brain Waves for Peace” – Final Chapter of ‘Radical Peace: People Refusing War’ by William T. Hathaway (USA)

January 10th, 2016

Brain Waves for Peace

From the book
RADICAL PEACE: People Refusing War
By William T. Hathaway

I was sitting in full lotus, body wrapped in a blanket, mind rapt in deep stillness, breathing lightly, wisps of air curling into the infinite space behind my closed eyes. My mantra had gone beyond sound to become a pulse of light in an emptiness that contained everything.

An electric shock flashed down my spine and through my body. My head snapped back, limbs jerked, a cry burst from my throat. Every muscle in my body contracted ― neck rigid, jaws clenched, forehead tight. Bolts of pain shot through me. I managed to lie down, then noticed I wasn’t breathing ― maybe I was already dead. I groaned and gulped a huge breath, which stirred a whirl of thoughts and images.

Vietnam again: Rotor wind from a hovering helicopter flails the water of a rice paddy while farmers run frantically for cover. Points of fire spark out from a bamboo grove to become dopplered whines past my ears. A plane dives on the grove to release a bomb which tumbles end over end and bursts into an orange globe of napalm. A man in my arms shakes in spasms as his chest gushes blood.

Santiago: Adjudicación de Artefactos Simulados Coordinados (Chile)

January 10th, 2016

“…Después de cada acción pueden retirarse a sus refugios ya preparados
de antemano, sin tener porque depender de la ayuda de la población.
Tomando las precauciones debidas, sus movimientos por las calles de la
gran ciudad pasaran inadvertidos, no diferenciándose en absoluto de la
corriente normal del resto de la población. El anonimato de la gran
ciudad es un factor determinante de la guerrilla urbana (…) Los éxitos
de la policía o del ejercito solo son posibles por casualidad, traición,
errores tácticos…”
El moderno estado capitalista y la estrategia de la
lucha armada / R.A.F.

El 30 de diciembre hemos abierto una nueva fractura en el espacio de
control y dominación del capital con la instalación de un artefacto
simulado consistente en un extintor cableado con sistema de relojería en
el Mall Plaza Alameda.

Una vez encontrado el artefacto hemos logrado paralizar la circulación
en el sector producto del operativo policial que fue televisado con el
escándalo de una bomba en el mall. Durante más de una hora circularon
periódicos informes en la televisión con la información de último
minuto, el GOPE realizó sus peritajes y el mall evacuó la enorme masa de
personas que circulaban y consumían en él, generando millonarias
pérdidas en una fecha en que el comercio lo sintió con mayor ímpetu.

Durante el mismo día instalamos otro artefacto de las mismas
características en un bus transantiago que se dirigía al sector oriente
de la ciudad, acción que no se hizo pública por los medios de prensa por
lo que desconocemos su alcance.

Con ambas acciones nuestro objetivo es dejar claro que sus estructuras
son vulnerables, el avance civilizado de la seguridad no es un
impedimento para atacar, sus grandes e ingeniosos mecanismos de control
social a través de la artificialidad e impartimiento de distintos tipos
de violencia son algo a sortear para quienes buscan inmiscuirse en la
entrañas del sistema para verlo devastado. La guerra social avanza con
la necesidad de reinventarnos y hacer de nuestros impactos secuelas que
permanezcan y fisuren cada atisbo de poder y propiedad.

Sepan que nuestros objetivos fueron lugares concurridos exclusivamente
porque los artefactos fueron simulados. Nuestro ataque es a los
mecanismos de control, nuestro mensaje es su vulnerabilidad y nuestro
propósito es devastar cada señal de la civilización material y con
representación en estructuras físicas, en estructuras de dominio y
control.

El mundo construido por el desangre de la libertad tiembla con cada
voluntad anarquista e incivilizada que enfoca su accionar contra el
blindaje de moral ciudadana, justificación y violencia que han arraigado
a la sociedad para el mantenimiento del poder.

De esta forma nos hacemos parte del Diciembre Negro que se desató por
todo el mundo y que continúa arrasando con la paz social de los Estados,
también nos sumamos al llamado por la memoria del compañero Sebastián
Oversluij, a 2 años de su caída en combate en una expropiación frustrada
a un banco en la comuna de Pudahuel. Para nosotros/as continuar con el
camino de la ofensiva es nuestro gesto más sincero a la vida que dedicó
por la anarquía, así recuperamos una iniciativa de acción a su memoria,
con nuevas ideas y proyecciones, pero siempre con el eje esencial del
conflicto ácrata contra toda representación de dominio.

¡Guerra a la civilización y al Estado/Capital!
¡A extender los núcleos de acción contra la dominación!
¡Sebastián Oversluij: Presente!
¡Viva la Anarquía!
