Moscow punks attack Indonesian embassy with paint in solidarity with Indonesian comrades (Russia)

December 16th, 2011

325 receives and transmits:

15 December 2011

On December the 15th a group of anonymous punks from Moscow decided to act upon receiving news of brutal state repression of Indonesian punk-scene. We consider ourselves anarcho-punks and these news offended us in the deepest sense. We wont tolerate any religion to hold sway over living being’s freedom, especially over our subculture. Thus on the same evening we gathered to express our rage. We chose Indonesian embassy as our target. For us solidarity starts on subcultural level. We feel that modern Russian anarchists pay too little attention to subcultures of resistance. We wish the news of our action to reach Indonesian comrades. We hope they will have their spirits soar after hearing that in such far-away country there are folks who feel solidarity with their struggle.

Punk is not a crime. Religion is fascism. Fight for your looks.

We didn’t want to make video, but it was agreed upon after a tedious discussion that even the most pacifist action should have video documentation. So here it goes:

Police arrest 64 punx at concert, shave their heads and imprison them for ‘re-education’, Aceh (Indonesia)

December 15th, 2011

Dozens of young men and women have been detained for being “punk” and “disturbing the peace” in Aceh, Indonesia’s most devoutly Muslim province. They are being held in a remedial school, where they are undergoing government “re-education”. The 64 punks, many of whom are from as far away as Bali or Jakarta, were picked up on Saturday 10 December night during a local concert. Many young teens sport punk hairstyles, in keeping with worldwide punk culture, but against the norms of the keenly religious in Aceh. Read the rest of this entry »

December wave of Letter-bombs by Free Eat & Billy Cell FAI/IRF (Germany, Italy, France)

December 15th, 2011

7/12/11 – Frankfurt, Germany : CEO Josef Ackermann is the intended target of a fully operational explosive parcel which is mailed to Deutsche Bank headquarters. Bank security staff identify the device during x-ray screening, and it is later neutralised by police. A claim of responsibility is recovered from the device, which is published in the corporate press.

9/12/11 – Rome, Italy : Chief Director Marco Cuccagna of Italy’s tax collection office, Equitalia, receives a letter-bomb which explodes after he opens it, causing damage to his hands, blowing off part of his finger and almost blinding him after his glass desk shatters in the explosion.

12/12/11 – Paris, France : The Greek embassy in Paris is the target of a third explosive device which is identified and neutralised.

Amidst the wave, mainstream media report that envelopes containing bullets and threatening letters are mailed to Italian Justice Minister Paola Severino and Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno. An additional parcel of vengeance was received by Equitalia on the 15th December, but was identified and neutralised. A note inside the latest package said “don’t kill yourself, rebel: death to usurers!”


Here is a translation of the claim of responsibility that accompanied the package bomb to the central headquarters of Deutsche Bank in Frankfurt:

FREEDOM AND HAPPINESS FOR OUR BROTHER GABRIEL POMBO DA SILVA. DEATH TO THE BANKS THAT STRANGLE THE PEOPLE.

THREE PARCEL BOMBS IN THESE DAYS ARE TRAVELLING TOWARD BANKS AND BANKERS, TICKS AND LEECHES. WITH THESE SMALL BUT RESOLVED ACTIONS, WE OF THE EAT & BILLY ITALIAN CELL JOIN IN THE NEW ANARCHIST INTERNATIONAL, THE INFORMAL ANARCHIST FEDERATION AND INTERNATIONAL REVOLUTIONARY FRONT. WE HAVE THIS NAME IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE INDONESIAN FAI, WITH OUR BROTHERS EAT AND BILLY. WE DON’T NEED SPECIALISTS OF ACTION, ANYONE CAN ARM THEIR OWN HANDS, ANYONE CAN ASSEMBLE THEIR OWN GIFT PACKAGE. WAR ON THE EUROPE OF THE BANKERS, DEATH TO THE LEECHES THAT GOVERN US.

LONG LIVE THE INDONESIAN FAI

LONG LIVE THE C.C.F.

VIVA THE NEW ANARCHIST GUERRILLA

VIVA THE FAI/IRF

Communique for the attack against the Italian Institute of Culture (Mexico)

December 15th, 2011

From culmine via war on society

13 December 2011

Last night we decided to give a demonstration of our anti-indulgence with respect to the norms that govern this society, the unmasked consumerism, the “commodity” of not thinking and refraining from an infinity of alternatives, and of, zombie-like, letting oneself be carried by commercialism, walking without a fixed course, without a project, passing stores, malls, barracks, museums of the State full of culture and useless “art” that has infatuated many “alternative people” thinking that with paintings about an unreal reality they can change something, they can see a different world and envision a future without violence, without hate, with agreement, without conflict… and passivity! eternal ally of the State/Capital, the useless urge to not do anything for oneself nor for anyone nor anything, nor to change minimally our situation as individuals.

About the arrest of the Afro-American George Wright, Black Revolutionary (Portugal)

December 15th, 2011

325 receives and transmits:

The US-Justice System is Seeking Revenge

This week, on the basis of press agency information, ND (“Neues Deutschland”) reported that a “wanted criminal” – wanted since breaking out of a US prison – had been apprehended in Portugal. George Pumphrey, a US-American with French citizenship, living in Berlin, knows the “criminal” George Wright. Roland Etzel interviewed Pumphrey.

●  Where did you first encounter George Wright?

It was in Paris. I had fled to Paris because of political and racist persecution in my country. George Wright, along with four other Afro-Americans had hijacked a jetliner from the USA to Algeria and later came to Paris. A French underground organization, that aided national liberation movements in the “Third World”, had supported us, which is how we met. Read the rest of this entry »

Attempted escape from Korydallos Prison by CCF & P.Vlastos (Greece)

December 15th, 2011

Around 6.45 this evening [12/12/11], P.Vlastos (a known underground figure accused of organizing kidnappings of rich industrialists among other things) took some prison guards hostage in his attempt to escape. A few members of the C.C.F. (who are in Koridallos because of the second part of the ‘Halandri’ trial) also participated in the attempt. After the escape attempt failed, they started negotiating, while one of the comrades of the C.C.F. made a statement to the media that they participated in the escape attempt but do not want to negotiate with cops, but want to publicize the horrible conditions in Koridallos prison (See above Youtube video for statement by Michalis Nikolopoulos).

Radical resistance in Russia: brief report by Black Blocg (Russia)

December 15th, 2011

Here is a brief report on radical acts of social confrontation in Russia since 9th November and until today. Nowadays we are faced with the pre-revolutionary situation of great people’s disturbance all over the country after parliamentary elections, where United Russia, the party of the ruling bunch of corrupted bureaucrats and oligarchs, took its “victory” due to massive falsification. We all hope here, that this not only beginning of the end of this semi-authoritarian regime, but also the dawn of people’s liberation – libertarian revolutionary struggle.

Anarchists sabotage rail line to disrupt flows of capital – Southern Oregon (USA)

December 15th, 2011

325 receives and transmits:

28 November 2011

Communique:

On the night of November 28th, 2011, we sabotaged a rail line in Southern Oregon as part of a coordinated effort to disrupt the flow of commerce on the West Coast. We got tired of watching trains pass through our towns loaded with lumber, ore, cheap commodities, and other resources pillaged from the earth without consequence. We didn’t do this out of a desire to create a more green, sustainable or humane civilization—we want nothing less than to see the total failure of this sick and rotten society.

This action was not only easy to carry out, but positively satisfying. We used 4AWG copper wire with the ends stripped of insulation and wrapped around the two sides of the track with the rest of it buried in the middle, which falsely indicated to a sensor that there was a train stopped on the railway.

We did this in solidarity with currently imprisoned members of the Long-Live Luciano Tortuga Cell/Indonesian FAI, to whom we send our most passionate revolutionary greetings.

We would also like to send our love to ALF prisoner of war, Walter Bond.

Towards an end to this nightmare world

CCF-Russia / FAI-IRF torch police vehicle in Moscow during protests (Russia)

December 9th, 2011

After December the 4th (election day in Russia), when the Russian state deployed numerous police and military forces in Moscow and common people took to the streets to shout “Enough is enough” in the face of cops and corrupt bureaucrats in all major Russian cities, anarchists were engaged in assembly work, organizing and propaganda.

Last week saw several clashes of common people with police (anarchists took part in those fights): 1 & 2

This “popular dissent” is expressed not only in Moscow, but in St. Petersburgh, Nizhnii Novgorod, Tyumen and other big cities.

System opposition called for a mass rally on December the 10th. Them and the authoritarian lefties try to come on top in this situation and direct the malcontent towards liberal reformism and pacifist practices.

Tomorrow will be the day we’ve been fighting hard to see coming. Tomorrow is the day that the Russian regime anticipates with fear.

Being not the least among those who helped build-up the situation, we continue to push for a more radical character of popular uprising.

On 09/12/2011 we torched a police car. Solidarity with all active insurgents, solidarity to all revolutionary anarchists in prisons!

Push for anarchist revolution!

FIRE AND GUNPOWDER : From Indonesia to Chile… A proposition for FAI/IRF (Global)

December 9th, 2011

A publication by the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire

We hear the song of fire that comes from far away. The words smell of gunpowder. From the other side of the world rebellious comrades burn the nights and liberate places and moments. We can hear them… They conspire, plan, attack… We do not have to say anything else, we leave our brothers and sisters to speak for us.

“We are all Conspiracy Cells of Fire. C.C.F. is not an organization or just a group. On the contrary it is a antagonistic expression of rage and contempt towards authority and its structures. To spread the C.C.F. all you need is gasoline, matches and the desire to fight for absolute freedom. We have begun the war against the existing order.”
Mexican C.C.F./FAI

The following text is dedicated to the Mexican C.C.F. and to our brothers and sisters of F.A.I. all around the world.

i)The wind blows against… from Indonesia to Chile.

These previous months from every corner of the earth more and more explosive messages of fire and gunpowder cross borders and seas reaching us here, in the Greek prisons where we are hostage, but not defeated.

Words mix with fire and behind the ashes of banks, government buildings, cop cars, nanotechnology labs, satellite antennas, private security cars and luxury shops, open a promise to friends and a threat to the enemy. They open a live proposition of the Informal Anarchist Federation (F.A.I.). An International Revolutionary Front (I.R.F.) is now organized in Italy, England, Chile, Mexico, Argentina, Russia, Holland, Peru, Bolivia, Indonesia, Australia, Greece…

An idea that started its journey ten years ago from Italy from the brothers and sisters of the Italian F.A.I. and today is stronger than ever. F.A.I. definitely is not a theoretic game of harmless words and symbols, but an idea to live dangerously and anarchically with all our senses, without dead time and cowardly excuses.

Often the texts that come to our hands like the one from the Italian F.A.I., the one from the English comrades of F.A.I. titled “Rain and Fire”, the announcement of the Russian F.A.I., the call of the 11 anarchist organizations from Mexico, and many more, fill us with a weird awkwardness. It’s this indescribable joy we feel when individuals and groups who do not know one another reach the same conclusions and feel the same feelings the exact same moment.

This feeling explodes in every word that unlocks the next and draws a common path of revolt. It is one of the few times that we do not have much to say. Most of our points are covered by our comrades. But we don’t want to consume the text in a series of compliments. Read the rest of this entry »

Call for New Year’s Eve noise demos outside of prisons, jails, and detention centers (Global)

December 9th, 2011

Global Noise Demo: New Years Eve 2011/2012
Outside & inside prisons, jails, and detention centers everywhere.

This event is inspired by the North American call out for a day of action against prisons in the New Year of 2011, which remains relevant unchanged:

Noise demos outside of prisons in some countries are a continuing tradition. A way of expressing solidarity for people imprisoned during the New Year, remembering those held captive by the state. A noise demo breaks the isolation and alienation of the cells our enemies create, but it does not have to stop at that.Prison has a long history within capital, being one of the most archaic forms of prolonged torture and punishment. It has been used to kill some slowly and torture those unwanted – delinquents to the reigning order – who have no need of fitting within the predetermined mold of society.

Also, there were remains of pepper gas in his clothes, and his coat was torn, which is additional proof that this was not a suicide. Also, Mikhail had his mobile phone, documents and money left with him – murderers took nothing from him. Read the rest of this entry »

Attack against a police station in Kirkkonummi (Finland)

December 9th, 2011

325 receives and transmits:

6 December 2011

There’s been a new attack against the police in Finland. Exactly one month after the last attack against a police station in Kerava, on the night between the 6th and 7th of December (6th is the Finnish independence day) a police station in Kirkkonummi (about 30 kilometers from the capital Helsinki) was attacked with an incendiary device.

“While a number of people were lining up for pea soup and elsewhere the “cream of society” was dancing in the president’s castle, we decided to take action. Early in Wednesday morning 7th of December we warmed the cold night by setting alight two canisters of gasoline with a fuse in front of the doors of Kirkkonummi police station. To warn the creatures moving in the area, we set a mechanism in the fuse that would send a warning with a loud noise.

While some people are still living in “welfare state” outside this illusion the reality looks very different. Everywhere we can hear voices of discontent. In front of the obstacles that we encounter, we are forced to look for the guilty ones from among the people already pushed aside by the society, even though the real answer to our situation can be found in front of our eyes, in the present system.

Time and time again we can read about people taking to the streets to present their growing rage and discontent and the police stopping the progress towards a change. We notice once again that in the capitalist system the police only has one function, to protect the interests of the ruling class.

Inspired by recent events we decided to act for ourselves instead of waiting for the change to come. Anyone can form affinity groups for direct action, instead of waiting for the mystic ‘vanguards’ or the out-of-date organizations to act.”

No borders, no nations!

Two comrades, Guido and Arturo sent to jail (Italy)

December 9th, 2011

Guido and Arturo, two comrades from Cuneo (Italy), were jailed for a few weeks last February following an action to block a Castor train loaded with nuclear waste in Val Susa (northern Italy). The action was carried out during the night by about forty people, mostly anarchists and some village people. Within a short time the gathering was surrounded by a large number of policemen, about 200. Despite the numerical inferiority the demonstrators felt it was necessary to act, driven by the ethical tension that they were in the right, against nuclear power and the system of death that justifies its existence. They tried to block the tracks with tyres and the police immediately charged the group on different sides. Some comrades were injured and three were detained. In the morning, Guido and Arturo, who have always been committed to the struggle against harmful substances and against this miserable existent, were remanded in custody.

George Wright, a Murderer? A closer look at the Plea-Bargaining aspect of the US Judicial System (USA)

December 9th, 2011

From solidariedadejorgedossanto(at)gmail.com:

By George Pumphrey, Berlin, Germany.

Many news articles had an aura of the “spectacular” in their reporting on Portugal’s arrest of the Portuguese citizen, Jose Luis Jorge Dos Santos (George Wright), at the request of the US government for consideration of his extradition to the United States. The articles placed their accent on the arrest of a “convicted murderer,” who had been a fugitive for 41 years.

Portuguese police arrested Jose Luis Jorge Dos Santos, earlier known as George Wright, September 26, 2011. In 1970, after serving eight of a 15 – 30 year sentence, Wright, along with three other inmates escaped from the Bayside minimum security prison facility in Leesburg N.J. According to the media, US officials are allegedly seeking to have Wright return “to serve the remainder of a 15- to 30-year jail sentence for the killing of Walter Patterson,” during a 1962 gas station hold-up in New Jersey. (One must add “allegedly,” because the media quotes no specific US official alleging that this is the sole or even the main reason for their seeking his return.)

In 1972, Wright, and 4 other Afro-American (taking along 3 children), hijacked a Delta Airlines flight from the USA to Algeria with a ransom of $1,000,000 destined for the foreign section of the Black Panther Party, based in Algiers at the time. Read the rest of this entry »

We also filled several of the locks of the vehicles with superglue and red paint was thrown over some of the larger vehicles.

The message should be clear by now zippos. Stop using animals in your shows or the actions will continue.”

Hatred translated into Action – Ravenna – Incendiary attack on Unicredit bank (Italy)

December 9th, 2011

From Anarchists for the Destruction of the Existent, via culmine and war on society:

3 December 2011

Many are the reasons that groups or individuals go on the attack, and great is the hatred for a world that does not belong to us and in which we spend too much time.

Everywhere, brave comrades decide to attack the system with direct action of any kind against any of its aspects – offices, banks, schools, churches and so on – carrying forward the war against all authority.

We have decided to take part in this war, attacking during the night of December 3-4 a Unicredit Bank branch, leaving a clear message to the exploiters of Ravenna and of the whole world and to all their guards: the powder keg is about to explode. We will reappropriate all that they have taken by force and with all means.

This is no time to remain immobile in the face of the destruction of our lives and of our dreams. It is time to attack, here and now.

We also want to renew the call to international solidarity, asking all comrades in affinity to strike Capital as they see fit and as the opportunity presents itself.

We dedicate this action to the comrade Luciano “Tortuga” and we send him all our affection. We are with you comrade, and we hope that these flames are able to show you that.

We are close to the comrades in Bologna who face trial December 12. You have all our support and we hope that this has given you some strength.

We want to send a fiery embrace to the comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire because their courage and determination have inspired us. We are on your side in this war, until the end.

We salute, finally, any comrade who chooses to attack with any means this nightmare, and all those who find themselves imprisoned for their desire for freedom.

For comrades who are fallen or confined in society’s cages

In Response to the C.C.F Proposal for a “Black International” by anti-fascist prisoner Jock Palfreeman (Bulgaria)

325 receives and transmits:

Greetings and solidarity

To all the prisoners of war we call comrades.

My name is Jock Palfreeman, I’ve served almost 4 years of a 20 year sentence for defending two Roma against a nationalist attack of 15. I was charged with the murder of one and the attempted murder of another. My case is documented further at freejock.com and I don’t wish to waste words on it here.

For almost 4 years now I’ve been officially kidnapped in Sofia Central Prison – state of Bulgaria. The realities of my case censured from the Bulgarian public by a state sponsoring media. I stay strong and look forward to the next 16 years as I know with all the essence of my being that what I did was right.

Prisoners of War are not victims of injustice like the “liberals” speak about in their self-justifying wank. We are willing enemies of the capitalist state and their organs. Read the rest of this entry »
