In the afternoon of Wednesday 18th September the Carabinieri [paramilitary police] of the special squad ROS [Special Operations Unit] raided the houses of four comrades in the Castelli Romani area. Searches were carried out and personal belongings seized. Two comrades were arrested and accused of belonging to an association with purposes of terrorism: they are Adriano and Gianluca, currently in solitary confinement in a prison in Rome and accused of carrying out a number of actions claimed by different names. The article used this time is 270bis of the penal code, which states: ‘association with purposes of terrorism and subversion of the democratic order’. Read the rest of this entry »
Polisi adalah musuh. Ini adalah pernyataan final kami yang tidak akan lagi bisa ditawar. Polisi terlahir tidak untuk menjadi sahabat, secara individual maupun institusi, dan tidak bisa tidak dimasukkan dalam daftar musuh yang mesti mendapatkan pukulan paling keras. Sebagai institusi dan individu, polisi adalah mereka yang bertugas untuk melindungi peradaban dan eksploitasi yang dilakukannya terhadap bumi. Polisi -seperti juga instrumen penindas yang lain- bertugas mengamankan uang dan kepentingan investasi demi berlangsungnya hidup antroposentrisme seperti hari. Polisi tidak hanya sekedar representasi bagi kami. Sebaliknya, polisi adalah salah satu dari ribuan wajah dari kebiadaban hidup hari ini. Polisi layak diserang, sekeras mungkin.
Atas jasa-jasa polisi yang dengan setia menjadi anjing penjaga bagi domestikasi hidup, mereka dibekali dengan peralatan tempur yang digunakan untuk memerangi keinginan merdeka dan cita-cita kehidupan liar di mana aturan judisial dan perangkat hukum absen total. Mereka dilengkapi dengan senjata, perisai dan rompi anti peluru. Perangkat-perangkat diproduksi agar babi-babi ini dapat dengan percaya diri dalam menghadapi perang yang dialamatkan kepada tuan-tuan mereka.
Tapi mereka salah besar. Polisi-polisi babi itu salah besar jika menyangka bahwa kami tidak cukup berani untuk mengirimkan serangan kami tepat di bagian-bagian penting mereka. Seperti saat ini, ketika kami menempatkan dua buah jerigen berisi 5 liter bensin dan 5 liter solar dilengkapi dengan pemicu otomatis. Pemicu yang telah kami siapkan agar kami dapat menjauh dari lokasi serangan dan membuat mereka tidak akan bisa menangkap satupun dari kami. Waktu yang lebih dari cukup untuk kami membiarkan alam melindungi kami dengan menghapus seluruh jejak-jejak kaki kami.
Kami mencoba sebuah langkah baru untuk meradikalkan serangan kami dan memperluas efek kerusakan yang ditimbulkan dari setiap pukulan yang kami arahkan kepada musuh. Perangkat pembakar yang kami kirimkan ke sebuah pabrik saat dini hari Senin, 23 September, yang terletak di Jalan Suryani Terusan, Kelurahan Babakan, Kecamatan Babakan Ciparay, Bandung, Jawa Barat.
Alasannya? Pabrik ini memproduksi rompi anti peluru bagi polisi dan tentara. Pabrik ini adalah salah satu sumber produksi peralatan perang bagi babi-babi ini. Rompi anti peluru untuk melindungi polisi dan tentara ketika mereka menembaki musuh, menembaki kami dan saudara-saudara kami.
Itu mengapa, membakar hangus pabrik ini adalah tujuan aksi ini.
Bersama aksi ini, kami mengirimkan salut hormat kami kepada para kombatan di belahan dunia lain dan tempat lain yang tanpa ragu melakukan serangan semaksimal mungkin. Salut kepada aksi bersama yang dilakukan oleh CCF Rusia dan ELF Rusia. Juga serangan tanpa henti dari kombatan-kombatan Amigo de la Tierra – FAI di Argentina. Juga serangan beruntun dari para pemberani di CCF dan ICR dalam Projek Phoenix.
Aksi ini juga adalah salam dan pelukan hangat kami kepada individu-individu pemberani yang diculik oleh negara namun terus melancarkan perang dalam keterbatasan geraknya. Kepada Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Marco Camenisch, Hans Niemeyer, Walter Bond, para kombatan dari Sel Dalam Penjara CCF serta para tahanan di Yunani, Italia dan Chile yang tidak bisa kami sebutkan satu persatu namun selalu berada di dalam hati kami.
Kehidupan Liar, Sekarang!
ELF Fraksi Indonesia
The police are the enemy . This is our final statement that is not negotiable. Police are not born to be friends, as individuals and as an institution, and can not be excluded from the list of enemies that must be addressed by for our attacks. As an institution and as individuals, the police goal is to protect civilization and the exploitation it is doing to the earth.
The objective of the police -as well as the other repressive instruments- is to secure the money and investment interests for the sake of the anthropocentric way of life as it is today. The police are not for representing our interests. Instead, the police are one of the thousands of faces of outrage alive today. Police must be attacked, as hard as possible.
For their loyal services as guard dogs for the domestication of life, they are equipped with combat equipment that is used against free will and the aspirations of wildlife where the judiciary and the rule of law are totally absent. They are equipped with weapons, armor and bulletproof vests. The devices are manufactured so that the pigs can act with confidence in the face of the war that is addressed to their masters.
But they were wrong. The pigs have a totally wrong idea if they think that we are not brave enough to send our attack right to their essential sectors. As of this moment, when we put two jerry cans containing 5 liters of petrol and 5 liters of diesel equipped with an automatic trigger. Triggers that we have prepared so that we can move away from the scene of the attack and make them not be able to catch any of us. Which is more than enough time for us to let nature protects us by removing all traces of our feets.
We tried a new step to radicalize our attacks and extend the effects of the damage from any blows that we direct to the enemy. Incendiary devices placed at a factory during the early hours on Monday, September 23, located on Canal Street Suryani, Babakan Village, District Babakan Ciparay, Bandung, West Java.
The reason? This factory manufactures bulletproof vests for cops and army. This plant is one of the sources for the production of war equipment for these pigs. Bullet-proof vests to protect police and soldiers when they open fire on the enemy, open fire on us and on our brothers. That’s why, this place is burning, charred, and this is the purpose of this action.
Together with these actions, we send our respectful salute to the combatants in other parts of the world and other places who without hesitation attack as much as possible. Salute to the joint actions undertaken by CCF Russia and the Russian ELF. Also the relentless attack from combatants Amigo de la Tierra – FAI in Argentina. Also the multiple attacks by the brave ones of CCF and ICR in Project Phoenix.
This action also is our warm greetings and hugs to the brave individuals who were abducted by the state but continue to wage war whilst their physical movements are limited. To Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Marco Camenisch, Hans Niemeyer, Walter Bond, the combatants of CCF Imprisoned Members Cell and the prisoners in Greece, Italy and Chile that we can not mention one by one, but they are always in our hearts.
Finally, we had an opportunity to write a letter in a ‘detailed way’ from our own point of view in our group. From beyond the geographical borders, -although it’s never been a limitation for our meetings in ideas and actions-, it is one of the basic problems that prevent our physical meeting,. Through this letter, we want to offer some of our analysis regarding the situation around us (as individuals and as a group), and also our own analysis related to the recent situation of FAI/IRF, since we are part of it. The letter is our critique and contribution for international anarchists of praxis around the globe.
The letter itself is the result of our discussion. But one must be aware from the beginning that we are an association of individualists, although we use one name in order of anonymity. In some part of this letter, the view represented the joint agreement among individuals in our group. But we never want to abolish the individual’s judgment. That is why below, you will find some parts where we mention about individual analysis or individual gesture.

FUNDAMENTALISM, DIRECT ACTIONS and THE ANARCHISTS?
Since June of this year, we noted that in Indonesia there were at least 4 cases of political shooting against police officers. In our brief analysis, these actions are done by Moslem armed groups. Fundamentalist groups who exist since several years ago. Some individuals said that they started to appear in early 2000 and run until now. Their type of actions most easily recognized by the targets. For example, the bombings of churches and ‘capitalist symbols’ such as hotels or cafés where many foreigners (western or easily-said-to-be white skins) hangout. The most famous actions of this group are the Bali bomb part 1 (12 October 2002), the bomb against JW Marriot hotels (5 August 2003), the bomb action against the Australian embassy in 2004 and three bomb actions known as Bali Bom part 2 (1 October 2005). We highlight one thing, that now the group moved to another tactic. Rather than to send any suicide bombers like before, now they are targeting the pigs (police).
Why are they targeting the police? Because for them, the police are the most repressive tools of the State. Police institutions and all the police officers are the ones who must take responsibility for all of the ‘counter-insurgency’ from the State against this Moslem group and all of its members in the last ten years. The Indonesian special unit against terrorism is well known as Densus 88, who are the number one enemy for this Moslem group. The pigs in Densus 88, specifically carry a purpose to smash down this Moslem group and all terrorist activities around and in Indonesia. In the last five years we noted that the pigs of Densus 88 held several raid operations against the Moslem group where some of the members were killed in gunfire battle with the pigs and a big number of the members arrested. At least more than 30 members of this group now face different charges in trial for their actions. Read the rest of this entry »
Eight hours standing in the perimeter of a police bus at the corner of Charilaou Trikoupi with Didotou street in Exarchia, wondering when you’re going to be attacked by “bottles” and stone-throwing. Recipients of hatred and rage that permeate our entire being. For what you are. For what we are. For those whom you serve. For what we’re fighting for.
Eight hours in a row, and now it’s time for the night shift, at 22.00, on September 19, 2013. Fresh pigs have come to replace you. After a chit chat, you enter the mobile pigsty all together.
But you are to confront us when you least expect it, when you sit your ass on a seat of the police bus, exhausted from this filth you call a job.
Two blocks away, at the junction of Charilaou Trikoupi and Dervenion streets, comrades wait for the police bus to get moving. They take positions, wait a bit longer, and then they push trash bins and block the street. The 10-liter jerrycans filled with gasoline are rolling underneath the vehicle. The cops make it just in time, and abandon the bus before watching the first Molotov light the flammable material. They have fear in their eyes.
Some other time, in another place, we’ll be waiting for you.

In mid-July 2013 ten members of the CCF-FAI/FRI (Olga Ekonomidou, Damianos Bolano, Charis Chatzimichelakis, Giorgos Polydoros, Panagiotis Argirou, Theofilos Mavropoulos, Christos Tsakalos, Gerasimos Tsakalos, Giorgos Nikolopoulos, Michalis Nikolopoulos), accused of ‘instigation’ following 4 attacks carried out in the context of the ‘Phoenix Project’, were summoned to testify before the judges.
On Friday the 6th of September as the farce of Australia’s federal election came to a close we decided to breathe some more fire into the mix.
50 + political posters with the names, faces and political parties who claim to want to “represent” us were collected throughout the night and as we descended on a footbridge across Trower Rd we noticed some do-gooder activists had already visited. Read the rest of this entry »
A statement from Bristol Anarchist Black Cross on the recent revelation by The Post and Avon & Somerset Police that they plan on “cracking down” on anarchist, rioters and extremists
When the flames were lit that engulfed the Police Firearms Training Centre in Portishead, near Bristol it shocked the country. Never before in living memory had such a blazen act of insurrection taken place on British soil and aimed at such a high-profile target. The mass media went hysterical with talk of a “anarchist terror network”. The communique, originally published on Bristol Indymedia, was quoted around the world and quickly dubious links were made between the arson at Portishead and other attacks across the UK.

On September 11, another activist of left wing student union “Direct Action” was attacked by a fascist paramilitary group with their faces covered. The attack happened in a public place in the city centre, near the subway station. The activist was not robbed, and the attack was video recorded by the offenders. The activist fainted and the passerby witnessed the attack called the ambulance and the police. Pavlo Myronov is in the hospital with a brain concussion and partial memory loss.

The Metropolitan Police arrested over 280 anti-fascist activists, local community members, and passersby in East London on 7 September, as up to 700 English Defence League supporters were allowed to march over Tower Bridge and rally at Aldgate without encountering any mass opposition.
A large community demonstration was restricted to Altab Ali Park, well out of sight of the EDL’s march route and rally point. A bloc of around 600 within the demonstration, coordinated by the Anti-Fascist Network (AFN), attempted to hold a march to get within sight of the EDL’s route and present a visible opposition, which was then blocked and kettled by police. Despite police attacks the front of the AFN bloc did manage to get within sight of the EDL march, meaning the only political opposition the racists saw on the day was a direct result of the AFN mobilisation.

Two Moscow cells of ecoanarchists carried out a coordinated attack on highway construction site in eastern Moscow that ended in torching of two bulldozers. The action took place on 08/09/2013. First we came upon some construction workers who were busy burning fires at their wheeled houses near the forest. So initially we were tempted to fuck them up and torch their houses with tools and personal belongings. But turned out that our mutual desire to clean karma was stronger than inclination to spoil it, so we didn’t touch the slaves. We torched their vehicles.
As usual, we acted with impudence: we did our black deeds right in front of workers and passer-by car drivers. So we apologized to the guy who almost got into a traffic accident because flaming dozer hypnotized him so much.
We take this opportunity to remind you that roadworks at the site continue. Moscow region is teeming with projects like this one, when trees are uprooted and earth is covered in bitumen. The more roads there are – the less we got left to live. This is not okay with us. Good luck to those who are brave. Death to those who are not.

This open letter is not addressed to the official milieu and its weathered structures. I despise its stereotypes, the putrescent breaths of its fixation. I consider the “anarchist” milieu of bureaucrats to be an enclave of Power, as they reproduce the same authoritarian values. I have no intention to make public relations, nor do I desire any sort of solidarity or unofficial help from dignitaries and subordinates of the antiauthoritarian lifestyle.
I am addressing the minorities; those individualities who show their contempt and mockery of Domination and its servants, and do not hesitate to take the offensive against the essence of contemporary civilization; all those anarchists of praxis who align themselves with the FAI-informal network, and furiously orchestrate their destructive plans, causing vexation in the camp of the enemy.

Black Petrograd festival will take place in St Petersburg, Russia, on November 2 – 4, 2013. The 10th annual anarchist festival will take three full days. This year, the programme will include less lectures and discussions, and more trainings and workshops, as well as presentations of libertarian projects and some interactive games. And naturally a gig by anarchist bands. Requests, offers and applications to participate are accepted
This video is filmed at Bike rally for Russian political prisoners arranged in Helsinki Finland on 7th September. Many of the by-passers cheered when the bike rally passed by. The demonstrators ringed their bells, chanted and played drums. The route started from Kolmen sepän patsas and ended in the Russian embassy in Tehtaankatu, where the demonstrators cycled around the embassy and afterwards listened few speeches of the situation of the political prisoners in Russia. Mainly the demonstration rally went well and with good ambience. Sadly when rally was ending (and when the video camera stopped recording) the police suddenly attacked and arrested six demonstrators.
Please join us for a follow-up discussion to our July 1st event, “On Jerry Koch, some stories of Political Repression, and Resistance“. In July we were joined by Tarik Haskins, Dequi Kioni-Sadiki, and Bob Lederer. For this event we’ve invited Eve Rosahn, Cisco Torres, and Laura Whitehorn, who will share their analyses and experiences in facing political repression as a result of revolutionary activity.

Their actions and their articulate anarchist analysis of capitalism and their high hopes for social revolution press a question to each reader who is ready to rebel and embrace their freedom. On 24 October 2011 their trial began. You can find updates about the process translated into English here and here. Update: N. Maziotis, P.Roupa and their baby-son, Victor Lambros have escaped into clandestinity and gone underground. Stay Free.
"This pamphlet is a meeting point of comrades from all over the world. An imaginary meeting since the walls and bars of the prisons where we are temporarily keep our bodies hostage. But our meanings remain free, escape from the cells of prison and are expressed with words continuing to provoke authority.
Words that still smell of fire and gunpowder, words which carry with them all of our hate for the system, words unrepentant and armed, words which transfer stresses and desires, words which break the isolation of prison, words full of passion for the mutiny we want to continue, words from Chile, Mexico, America, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Bulgaria, Indonesia..."CCF
