AGAINST THE DICTATORSHIP OF TECHNOLOGY
The present society is without doubt best described as a technocratic system where global science operates unrestrained and the products they put on the market dominate and govern life.
The multinational companies maintain their dominion over the planet via the States and their international institutions (UN, EU, IMF, ECB).
The hyper-technological society is the perfect accompaniment to meet two primary requirements of Power: profit and social control.
Thanks to the modern deities of science and technology, profit knows no limits with endless military contracts and an incredible amount of useless products continuously marketed.
Social control of life is now becoming more and more widespread as it evolves from simple surveillance cameras to the use of nanotechnology.
The people, already deprived of their autonomy and their own free wll are indoctrinated into this fabulous world of science via a partial and fictitious access to technology.
With the chimera of improving the quality of life the only real effects are unbridled production, the atrophying of people’s minds and abilities, the cancellation of genuine emotions and finally life itself.
Meanwhile what remains of nature is devastated to build mega-projects to ensure the speedier travel of goods and faster access to information.
Meanwhile the general indifference continues as television transmits images of people massacred and starved to exploit the resources required to increase the production of consumer goods.
For once we decided to evade control and threaten the profits of the technocratic society.
We set fire to the power cables for a repeater owned by Italsite Spa, a company that specializes in the telecommunications sector in Italy and Europe.

“Life is a journey by parachute, and not what you want to believe. We are falling, falling from our zenith to our nadir, and we leave the air stained with blood to poison those who will come to breathe it tomorrow. Within yourself, outside yourself, you will fall from your highest to lowest point because that is your destiny, your miserable destiny. And the higher you fall from, the higher you will bounce, and the longer you will be remembered by the stone. We have jumped from our mother’s bellies or the edge of a star, and we are falling. Oh, my parachute, the sole perfumed rose of the atmosphere, the rose of death, tumbling between the stars of death. Have you heard? That is the sinister noise of closed breasts. Open the door of your soul and come out to breathe outside. You can open the door that the hurricane slammed, with only a whisper.” [Vicente Huidobro, Altazor]
On Tuesday, June 9, according to one of the many calendars of domination. Our contradictory wrists carry watches that indicate that it’s ten till two in the morning. The cold is chilling, but we’re well equipped. Long minutes walking to enter the outskirts of the industrial park Lo Boza, in the municipality of Pudahuel – a territory substantially faded by the uncontrolled advance of the techno-industrial system and the active complicity of the submissive population, which has been enchanted by this regime of hate and death. “Where the waters meet” was once home to fertile, colorful land; for the time being, it is a deposit of human waste, orderly zombies arriving early to work in the morning. The air is torn by hundred airplanes that land with impunity on the high-density concrete of the Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport, the soil is dirtied by industries that spring up faster than mushrooms in the Valdivian forest, the water is “mis-treated” by some of the largest water treatment plants in South America.

Sobran las razones para actuar, las motivaciones y urgencias. También en muchxs sobran las excusas para no hacerlo. Siempre eligiremos concientemente la primera opción. El sábado 4 de julio minutos antes de que comenzara la final de la “copa américa” la cual disputarían futbolistas millonarios de chile y argentina, saboteamos las vías del tren que une a la ciudad de la plata con la estación de constitución, demostramos por un lado nuestra repulsa al espectáculo idiotizante que conllevo la realización de este torneo el cual claramente se uso como tapadera para las harteras maniobras del poder. Nos repulsa la algarabía patriotera de lxs subditxs de la cual se nutren ambos estados, al igual que innumerables empresas y particulares patrocinadorxs. Por otro lado, fue un claro gesto de complicidad y cariño con lxs compañerxs encarceladxs en la región chilena, prisiones que en algunos casos se dieron gracias a la cooperación de ambos estados.

SRB (Network of Revolutionary Cells communique: Police car torched in response to Operation Fenix
In the early hours of Saturday, July 4, 2015 we torched a police car outside the Praha-Bubny police station. This was in response to the police and state repression against anarchists. Since April 28, 2015 when the police launched ‘Operation Fenix‘, four anarchists have been arrested and held in custody. Wild Heart Cell sends a message with this sabotage: We will not tolerate such violence by the state and we will fight against it!
With the launch of ‘Operation Fenix’ cops have declared war against the anarchist movement. They thought they could scare us into giving up. They have made a mistake, we will never give up. We are moving into counterattack.
They want to suffocate the resistance but they only add more fuel to the fire.

SRB (Network of Revolutionary Cells) Communique: Police car torched in solidarity with Alešem Kočím
On Wednesday, July 1st, 2015, a police car was set on fire in Prague. It occurred on the outskirts of the park near the Srašnická metro station. As part of the ongoing struggle an SRB cell attacked the police car to send a fiery greeting to Alešem Kočím. For his anarchist beliefs in class warfare, Alešem fell into the hands of the state. On the 28th April, 2015 he was detained by the police during ‘Operation Fenix’ and was subsequently charged with possession of illegal weapons. He now sits in custody as a prisoner of the state.
The state and it’s institutions have a huge arsenal of weapons and have created a monopoly on their use. They constantly use them in order to keep the capitalist construct in motion – the network of exploitative and oppressive relations. Anarchists do not accept the state’s monopoly on weapons. Anarchist praxis confronts the values the defend and reproduce state violence. State violence against anarchists builds insurgent violence.
Alešem Kočím is an anarchist who disrupted the state’s monopoly on the use of weapons by being armed. SRB supports such a stance. While Alešem is in the hands of the enemy this limits his potential for future struggle but we do not intend to accept this situation. Incendiary words, fire, weapons and explosives – it’s all part of our struggle. Revolutionary struggle against the violence perpetrated by the state to preserve the misery of capitalism. So far we have only used fire to ignite cars. Next time however will not be the same.

Athens: ‘Combative Anarchy / FAI-IRF’ takes responsibility for arson attack against SYRIZA offices in anarchist prisoner solidarity action (Greece)
Tuesday, June 30th, 2015
Combative Anarchy / FAI – IRF takes responsibility for the incendiary attack against SYRIZA offices in Kypseli. We torched the offices of these politicians opportunists as a first response to the rejection of the educational leave of our comrade Nikos Romanos and the vindictive extension of the hostage situation of the wife of the comrade of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, Gerasimos Tsakalos. The world of authority is here. In the hands of immigrants marked with numbers, in the summits of economists, the incessant propaganda of journalists, the ministries of the “left governance”, in courts, police stations, the villas of the rich. Anarchist insurrection does not aim to reform capitalism, nor stops the action depending on the political administrator of the machines of death and exploitation. The dawn of our time will come upon the ruins of capitalist society. Until then, the only thing left to us is the continuous and uncompromising anarchist struggle.
STRENGTH TO THOSE WHO ARM THEIR NEGATIONS! STRENGTH TO ALL ANARCHIST PRISONERS!
PS) During the hunger strike of the imprisoned comrades in Chile, we torched a diplomatic vehicle in Ano Pefki, wanting to heat their hearts with the fire of anarchist solidarity. Get well comrades.

Prague: Network of Revolutionary Cells take responsibility for car arson attack against exploiter (Czech Republic)

SRB Communique: The fourth arson attack on Řízkárnu
Network of Revolutionary Cells / SRB have conducted another arson attack at a Řízkárna restaurant in Prague. At dawn on Friday, June 26, another car was torched at Řízkárny. Responsibility for the sabotage is claimed by N95 Cell. V. Krulec acquired cars and other equipment for his restaurant via the unpaid work of his employees. The sabotage was carried out in order to decommission the car so that he could not use it for the further exploitation and robbery of workers.
Sabotage is both a means of defense and of attack. It is one of many methods that can be accessed by angry proletarians in the fight against the capitalist filth.

During the night of Monday June 15 we attacked a car company located in the vicinity of the intersection of Vicuña Mackenna and Amerigo Vespucci avenues in La Florida by placing an incendiary device inside one of the cars that was for sale. The resulting fire caused partial damages to the car and the company.
We carried out our action in the middle of the collective patriotic alienation that was generated by the party for the Chilean national soccer team, choosing our target in advance and scheduling it in a way that made it clear that we were not interested in a random attack that could harm people who had nothing to do with our action. We acted within a few meters from a police checkpoint, demonstrating that the police do not have everything under control and that an attack is always possible.
It wasn’t just a new car that we attacked, an attack on something material was not the only goal of our action; the attack was also against the background that houses each of these machines that shares the same meaning and sense of the domination of society. It is the collections of merchandise displayed in glass cases and shelves, the accumulation of capital, unscrupulous human exploitation through wage labor, the devastation of land to plunder resources, the lust for ostentation and the nonsense of production – everything was attacked that night.

‘Commando Emile Henry’ takes responsibility for an incendiary attack against the offices of Groupama Insurance and McQuilling Partners shipping company (Greece)

“My hands don’t get used to the artificial connection in virtual universes. Connected lives in wireless networks, my eyes search for the eternal fire of rebellion among the multitude of corpses and only in isolated gazes, the conscious individual emerges with dagger eyes that resists dying in the democratic cemetery. Before going to sleep I embrace chaos as an idea that liberates my body and my mind Because after all, it makes me feel alive. I do not want to search for the grail that will liberate future societies. My fingers search for the bloody flight of the destruction of the chains of the rhythmic fire, of the close fire of power and its masters.”
Mauricio Morales Duarte
This day, six years ago, comrade Mauricio Morales was heading to the school for prison guards in Santiago, in distant Chile, when suddenly the bomb, which he intended to place there, exploded prematurely depriving him of his life. Six years later, today at dawn, we carried out a double arson attack as a minimum tribute to the memory of the comrade.
We mined a two-storey building on Vouliagmenis avenue in Elliniko, where the offices of the insurance company Groupama Insurance (a subsidiary of the multinational banking group with the same name) and the offices of the multinational shipping company McQuilling Partners are co-located, placing four improvised incendiary devices. With this action we do not anticipate an impact on or the understanding by neither the willingly obedient mass of peaceful citizens nor the irredentist “professionals” of the movement. Of course, the recognition and appropriation of anarchist violent action by young comrades is a positive perspective. However, we do not see this as a condition or constraint for going on the offensive. That would be hypocritical, because part of our mentality and orientation, beyond the theoretical constitution and practice, remains the constant satisfaction of our instincts and desires, something which is far from negligible.

On Friday 15th May a cop car parked outside the police station on Hostivařska Road in Prague was set on fire. This is the result of premeditated sabotage carried out by the M.A.P. cell. We were following the actions of the Network of Revolutionary Cells, but hesitated before turning our anger into direct action of attack. For a long time we were tormented by fear and indecision.
Then a change of direction happened. On 28th April the police launched an attack on the anarchist movement of the country we live in,and this facilitated our decision to act. We think other choices of this kind will follow. Perhaps a burnt out police car represents just a small step compared with what must be done to put an end to capitalism. (more…)

From Insurrection News:
An Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI) – International Revolutionary Front (IRF) cell based in Chile calling itself Grupo Kapibara have released a communique claiming responsibility for an incendiary attack against a substation of the electricity provider Chilectra in Santiago on 06.05.15.
According to the communique a timed incendiary device containing 1.2 liters of gasoline and 400 grams of polystyrene was placed in a room inside the substation. The timing mechanism was set to activate half an hour after placement of the device but for unknown reasons activation did not occur until several hours later.
The communique states that the action was carried out in order to strike a destructive blow against the techno-industrial system in defense of Mother Earth. The communique also contains expressions of solidarity with the anarchist nihilist prisoner Spyros Mandylas held captive in Greece, the comrades Nataly, Juan and Guillermo on hunger strike in Chile and the comrades Sol, Tato and Javier, also imprisoned in Chile. Mention is also made of fallen anarchist Punky Mauri who died in 2009 while attempting to place a bomb at the prison warden’s school in Santiago, Chile.

Athens: The Earth Liberation Front takes responsibility for an incendiary attack against a poultry company in solidarity with the prisoners struggle (Greece)
Sunday, April 19th, 2015
Inter Arma received and translated:
On the evening of the Easter day, 12 to 13 of April, we attacked using 3 incendiary devices with time delay, aiming to destroy the building’s entrance and 3 vehicles (1 truck and 2 vans) belonging to a poultry company in Agios Pavlos Str. in Peristeri, as an action of solidarity with the imprisoned hunger strikers in Greek prisons.
Strength to all those who continue, to the imprisoned members of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and those who are recovering, having stood with dignity and consistency against the state and in this specific timing, against the left administrators and exponents of authority – who (and this is clear for all those who don’t connive) since the first day they gripped the governmental seats have made their intentions clear, with highlight, so far, the tactical administration of the hunger strike and the eviction of the occupied University’s of Athens deanery.
IMMEDIATE satisfaction of the hunger strikers’ demands:
Abolition of paragraphs 187 and 187A of the counter-terrorist law
Abolition of the hood-law
Abolition of type C prisons
Immediate release of the heavily handicapped Savvas Ksiros
Restriction of DNA use
We chose this specific target as we believe that practical opposition to the non-human animals commercialization industry cannot be excluded from the fight against the state, the capital and every kind of authoritarian superstructure. The practice of detention is the same, equally rejectable whether it has to do with human prisons – “correctional institutions”, concentration camps or if it concerns structures of the meat and animal products industry .
The timing of our attack was no coincidence. It was a moment while the human-mass was still sunk in sloth, having done the previous days their bit towards the Church and the holy ghosts that haunt and define their very existence. Every temple of society, physical or mental, every mold, every stereotype, every habit that reproduces, feeds or just reflects the numerous faces of power, is worth nothing more than being crushed.
Such a habit is the meat eating which has been established the exact same way that the practice of nature looting is established as “normal”, as we notice it taking place in Skouries, Chalkidiki, Italy (NO-TAV) and every place in the world.
Through this action of ours we respond to the call of Chilean comrades, whose actions have given us smiles so many times. Strength to Nataly Casanova, Juan Flores and Guillermo Durán, who are on hunger strike since April 14th.
At the same time, we are sending our own signal of solidarity and complicity to all those charged, imprisoned and suffering repression, having found themselves on the attack lines of ELF and ALF.
We’re sending out a call to every rebelling individual, every affinity group, every direct action cell, in order to intensify the attacks on all fronts, in any way they think suitable, by all means available.

Phoenix Project 2015: Attack against animal exploitation company.
For human, animal and earth liberation (Chile)
Day by day, minute by minute, power is maintained and reproduced in the social relations of all those who accept this order based on the exercise of authority, domination and exploitation, and in all institutions, companies and machines that allow their normal development, never forgetting the voluntary action of power dignitaries and his accomplices: businessmen, politicians, police and citizen that defend power and submission, who strive for the status quo to run it and to be maintained.
When we decide to fight authority in all its forms and expressions, the struggle for total liberation makes sense, because it includes the various scenarios in which the power runs its domain. Our fight does not segment, it integrates, and so, to fight for total freedom implies also fight against State, capital, speciesism, hierarchies, specialization and varied expressions of authoritarianism.
And despite the efforts of the Chilean State to eliminate ideas and practices of revolt, direct attack by anarchic action groups still continues. (more…)

Athens: ‘FAI – Solidarity and Revenge Cell’ take responsibility for an incendiary attack against local offices of SY.RIZ.A. (Greece)
Thursday, April 9th, 2015
Inter Arma received and translated:
Today, anarchist hunger strikers are on the 38th day of hunger strike. The ongoing struggle targets all anti-insurrectional laws, which constitute the legal armor and the punitive arsenal of the democratic regime. A fight which concerns not only the imprisoned comrades but also anarchists outside prison who fight daily by all means against the enemy, as they are next on the application list of the repressive agenda.
The new government coalition with SY.RIZ.A. in its center, walks the traditional repressive path of social democracy, which has made the system’s assimilation and repression a science. Next to the targeted police and legal repression it puts a wide troupe of academics, artists, leftist journalists and other clowns who systematically slanders, distorts and degrades the struggle and its subjects. At the same time, this new caste of disgusting former PASOK and current SY.RIZ.A. voters that rushed like sheep to vote their new savior blurred from his leftist mirrors, participates like a fifth column in this slandering campaign.
Unlike the more blunt right-wingt system managers, the left government having grown in the core of petty politics (the left) is familiar with this game. So, while the ridiculous Panousis (who probably still bears a grudge against anarchists because of the “care” he had received from some comrades some years ago on this favorite academic step) makes grand, military press announcements, a part of the party apparatus (youth, civil rights movements, etc. ) has assumed the role of internal opposition and the maintenance of government links to the infamous movement which honored it with its votes.
This struggle, as the one during the strike of comrade Nikos Romanos, was an excellent opportunity to test the resilience and nature of anarchists in Greece, on several levels. Apart from the usual imaginary concept of “counter-information”, according to which those who two months ago elected the government of SY.RIZ.A. and the right-wing mob that was coiled by the New Republic, AN.EL. and Golden Dawn parties, would suddenly support anarchists and especially on an issue that does not concern them at all (there is not even half a social demand in this strike, only collateral benefits for various categories of criminal prisoners), the occupations that either ended up useless and problematic or tried to turn the struggle towards irrelevant directions (it’s the irony of life that during the period that this “class struggle-turn” started, in Chalkidiki. the metalworkers were beating the people opposed to the mines, on behalf of Bobolas(1)) and activism intended only to draw the attention of the media, there was also a major wave of violent actions and aggressive interventions across the country.
The only language the enemy understands, is the all-out and multi-form attack, with words and actions, against him. It is the language of the deconstruction of his ideological arsenal and the attack against his infrastructure. It is the texts, flyers, banners and posters, overflowing with hatred. It is the damaged vehicles and buildings, burnt cops, terrified judges and prosecutors and tattered streets in the center of the decaying metropolis.
So, at dawn of Wednesday 08/04, we placed an incendiary device at the entrance of the local youth offices of SY.RIZ.A. in Kessariani, a few blocks away from the local police station.
Let SY.RIZ.A., its politicians, its movement leeches and its sleeping voters know that the macho attitude of the winner deflates quickly, especially when the victory was achieved in a court that we neither played nor will ever play. For us, there is no hallowed leftist veil and historical self-worth which protects you. And if not anything else, we will always remember that you are the government because of which one of our comrades nearly died. You should wish for him to leave the hospital strong and standing.
We salute the comrades of FAI in Greece and abroad who participated actively in the struggle and also the rest of the anonymous or eponymous conspirators who went on the offensive in whatever way they chose to attack. Hopefully, this momentum will continue both in this struggle and in the many to come.
We wish a speedy recovery to the brothers of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and Angeliki Spyropoulou and strength to the anarchist prisoners who are still on hunger strike. You are not alone.
The war continues

PS1: As we were informed by the mainstream media, the promised transfer of the police units that served as security details for high-profile targets progresses rapidly, and little by little, they are all gathered around the home of the Prime Minister. We, for our part, wish him the best. More empty streets for us.
PS2: Our warm congratulations to the anarchists who voted for SY.RIZ.A., we hope for them to have the dignity to refrain from the solidarity movement for the hunger strikers.

Athens: Incendiary attack against the central offices of Microsoft by ‘Combative Anarchy – FAI/IRF’ (Greece)

ACTION PLAN FOR AN INTERNATIONAL ANARCHIST COUNTER-ATTACK
“LET’S DESTROY REPRESSION”
Combative Anarchy claims responsibility for the attack against the central offices of Microsoft in Greece. The comrades who took part in the action, placed the incendiary device composed of gas canisters and gunpowder and safely left, humiliating the security measures of the building once again. Microsoft is a multinational colossus of the techno-industrial complex, one of the most powerful companies of its industry and inextricably linked to the political and economic system. The attack at the cutting edge of the capitalist domination in techno-science and its murderous tentacles means the attack against the mechanization of life itself. The revolutionary war is a basis around which the constant conflict with the existent is being built, an attempt for the total liberation of our lives from the chains of the state, the capital and their society, which expand to the space-time continuum as the oppressed ones rebel against their oppressors.
On March 2nd, anarchists and political prisoners started a hunger strike, targeting to fight against the repressive framework of the state, the counter-terrorism unit and the judges. At the same time, the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and anarchist Aggeliki Spyropoulou announced the beginning of the hunger strike until death, demanding the immediate release of their relatives, who were revengefully detained by the schemes of the police and judicial mafia. Today, with many comrades hospitalized in critical condition, with CCF comrade Mihalis Nikolopoulos being threatened by permanent physical damage, despite the victorious outcome of his organization’s fight, with the “left” managers of power having thrown the mask of humanism in the garbage, the anarchist fight should speed up the counter-attack and lead the state in retreat. The fight of our imprisoned comrades and the new facts on the social and political field, after the election of SY.RI.Z.A., should be evaluated in the direction of revolutionary development. The multiformity of experiences and the collective effort is the focus of this evaluation, which lays the foundation for the material formation of our anti-state conspiracy against power.
Now, it’s in our hands to project the strategic necessity of the anarchist urban guerrilla warfare, by sabotaging the operations of the social machine, blowing up the walls of apathy and releasing the rebellious intentions. Weaving on the thread between theory, action and target, continuing the solitary walking in the paths of freedom, with our minds firmly attached to all our comrades who are locked up in the cells of democracy. We have just started. We are planning sabotages, we are harassing the enemy, we are experimenting with methods and practices, we are organizing our generalized counter-attack against the world of power. This act of ours is a contribution to the comrades of Czech FAI/IRF suggestion, who burned a police car and suggested the creation of an international action project with the name “Let’s destroy repression”, modeled on the “Phoenix” Project.
Moreover, it is our contribution to the days of international solidarity with the imprisoned comrades in Chile. Comrades, this explosion was for you as well! Strength to the comrade Aggeliki Spyropoulou and the prison cell of the Conspiracy who, with their unyielding and victorious fight, will soon see their beloved ones free again. Quick recovery comrades, your perseverance is a source of inspiration for the subversive spirits of our times. Let our fire become a hearth of warmth for the anarchists of the Network of Imprisoned Fighters and the member of Revolutionary Struggle, Nikos Maziotis, who stopped the hunger strike before our text was released.
SOLIDARITY WITH ALL THE ANARCHIST PRISONERS!
GOOD LUCK AND STRENGTH TO EVERYONE WANTED BY THE LEGAL ORDER!
WE ARM, ORGANIZE OURSELVES AND ATTACK!
LONG LIVE THE COMBATIVE ANARCHY!

I. On the 02/03 a fight against modern anti-terrorist policy begins in prisons, a policy reflected in a series of repressive laws that confirm that there is a war between the world of authority and the world of struggle.
Anarchists and communists prisoners, from Greece and Turkey, with their bodies as weapons, are on a hunger strike, having as common demands the following:
- The abolition of C type prisons
- The abolition of paragraphs 187 and 187A (anti-terrorist law)
- The abolition of the law that considers it a statutory offense when a crime is committed while a person’s characteristics are hidden
- The delimited usage of DNA as evidence
- The release of Savvas Ksiros
Meanwhile, the imprisoned members of CCF are also on a hunger strike, as well as Anggeliki Spyropoulou, demanding the release of Gerasimos’ and Christos’ Tsakalos relatives.
II. For the first time such an important situation has occurred, a situation which due to its overall characteristics and demands does not only contain the imprisoned fighters, but a big part of society, too. This specific situation, also due to the change of government, leaves us no room for complacency and makes distinct the necessity to raise mounds against the dominion of the state and capital and defend our communities. We have no illusions, we are not moved by their leftist rhetoric. Because the whips may have changed hands, they, however, leave the same marks on the repressed ones’ backs. We do not forget the recent invasions in fighters’ houses, the suicide committed by a detained Pakistani in the dungeons of their prisons, the vengeful imprisonments of the relatives of CCF’s members, the provocative statements made by the deputy minister of Citizen Protection Panousis. There are yet much more to see…
III. After many days of hunger strike the comrades have started being transferred to hospitals, where in some specific cases, the care being offered by the staff bears no resemblance with the medical care a hunger striker should have. The same applies to Fivos Charisis’ case, in which we saw that arrogance has no limits when the director of the pathological clinic of Tzaneio Hospital, Stelios Drimis, with excess pride, was willing to sign the comrade’s return to prison, putting the responsibility on him, as Foivos would not accept to be receive serum. This incident is not an isolated case, but, as we have seen in previous hunger strikes as well, it completes the picture of full of EKAM and EOM (special police units) hospitals, with the strikers being denied visiting and correspondence, doctors collaborating with the police, doctors testing the endurance of hunger strikers by bringing them food and treating them disparagingly, playing the role of torturer much better than the one of the doctor. This scum is one of the above cases. We cannot overlook that part of the medical community which stands to the occasion helping by every means, understanding the seriousness of such a struggle.
IV. On Saturday night of the 28th of March, we visited Stelios Drimis’ house in Nea Smyrni and placed an incendiary device (of low force) at the entrance. This action is a clear message to every potential torturer that nothing shall be done without consequences, nothing shall remain unanswered.

Statement of FAI/IRF Poetry of fire cell
On Thursday 26th March 2015 we make an arson attack on a police car in Olomouc city. Attack against repressive machinery means fighting for freedom. Because where repression is needed, there is no place for liberty to bloom. There is no place without repression. Repression is an instrument of the state and capital. Repression and authority are the two sides of the same coin. Repression is global. Repression comes from the state as well as from the private sector. It cooperates all around the world. Everyone has met some kind of repression except those who do not want to live their own lives. Those who bow their heads and accept the orders voluntarily. Those who refuse the existing order knows the consequences. Everyone who even only tries to get his unpaid wage by means of direct action, people in a wild strike, people attacking the billboards or people looting during the riots know it. We are happy about every demonstration of insurrection which crosses bonds of legality, but only in case there is no demand of repression against the others. One day people attack the police to fight against taxes, the day after they demand stricter law against homeless people and “unadaptables”, the third day they become homeless themselves and want more money from taxes on social spending, the fourth day they find some job and try to avoid paying taxes again. Conditions in which we live influence our lives, but we must not use them as an excuse. What is the most important are the choices we make. In every situation we can succumb or we can resist.
We, the anarchists, do not let anyone decide about our lives. We feel only pity for people who try to find their path through the sad reality at the expense of the others. They bend their backs in the face of the Existent and make excuses about the objective conditions. We, the anarchist, we fight for a world without repression, without compulsion. Therefore we fight against every kind of repression continuously, regardless if it hits peaceful demonstrations of students on the other side of the world or the criminals in our town. We feel solidarity and sincere affinity with those who fight for destruction of repressive machinery, for anarchy. Rebels, insurrectionists, anarchists, revolutionaries, fighters…
Currently the Greek political prisoners continue their continuous fight against repression. Network of fighting prisoners (NFP), Maziotis, Gournas, members of CCF and many others. All these decided not to give up their fight and to resist repression even in captivity. Our attack is a gesture of solidarity with their fight. And therefore our attack is part of the struggle for anarchy, in the aim of helping the hunger strikers to win their fight.
Fighting against repression is also fighting against militarization. Our act also notes against passing of US army convoy, which will demonstrate its power in our neighborhood. We are not afraid of soldiers and cops, we are scared of society, which lets the elites to commit the worst atrocities, without resistance, obediently. Society of zombies. Our attack and our statement is contribution to Project Phoenix 2015 “Lets destroy Repression”. Project Phoenix is a game. We can play the game or we can finish it every time we want. We can do what we want to do. It is creative game played according to our rules. Everyone can join the game. Everyone can leave the game. When nobody plays the game it will cease to exist. This is part of life. It is only our choice. Some new game will appear sooner or later. Most important is to play according to our rules. The game which arouse passion and joy. It is also a destructive game at the same time. Destructive for the authorities.
Project Phoenix is solidarity praxis and it can be our own combative analysis. To get to know each other in combat. To plan how to aim our guns better against the Existent. This way we connect now and continuously. We connect destructively and creatively. Creative, not because we would like to create something in this society, but because everything which will be created in this society will be used as a tool of oppression unless it is destructive for the Existent.
We keep the new world in our hearts. The world where creativity is not turned into the tool of repression. In the recent world exists only one fight for freedom. A fight which is creative and full of joy for those who do not want to be chained. A fight which is destructive for the chains. There are many ways how to fight for a more beautiful world.
We have also received the messages from the anarchists abroad. First mentions of current anarchists of praxis, R.O. – Revolutionary Struggle, CCF, FAI/FRI, etc. appeared about 3 years ago [in Czech Republic]. Official anarchism, and state and capital try hard to suppress every combative tendency. When we read the information about official movement in Greece, it seems to us, that there is the same situation in our country. The proof is that nobody here informed about the hunger strike till now. Everyone has their own timing but it seems that some calls meet only deaf ears. There can be various reasons. One of them surely is the situation here. Therefore it is important for us to mention briefly the context of anarchism in Czech.

While social democratic reserves of the regime try to flatter us and ecstatic besotted petty bourgeois voters are dancing sirtaki at Syntagma, during demonstrations in favor of the government (!), the wolves that escaped the hunt come down to the city with rage…
It goes without saying that no faction of authoritarian potty politicians would ever be able to satisfy our wild desires. You’re talking about left government, we wish for the State to be destroyed. You’re promising salary increases, reduced taxes, jobs, we want the elimination of money, commodity and labor. You’re asking for “democratization of the security forces,” we want the cops dead on asphalt. You’re fighting for better conditions in the neighborhoods, but we want to just have fun on the flaming ruins of your cities. You do politics, we make war. Things are difficult dear perry politicians. You understand that there is a vast existential abyss between us and there is not much room for dialogue.
So, it is no wonder that on Monday 23/3, at dawn, the official day of the “neighborhood cop” return, we chose to offer the office of the local organization of the governing party into the flames of negation, in Patisia.
We dedicate this attack to our brothers and sisters on hunger strike and we demand the immediate satisfaction of all of their demands, without implying that any of the enemy’s concessions, on such particular demands, can silence our longing for the total destruction of your world and your emetic society:
- Immediate release of Savas Ksiros
- Immediate release of the Tsakalos’ brothers’ mother and Gerasimos’ partner.
- Abolition of the counter-terrorist laws and the hood-law.
- Abolition of C’ Type prisons.
- Abolition of the provisions relating to violent DNA taking.
- Free internet access for all the prisoners.

The axis of the rabble has struck. We set fire with the intention of considerably impairing the power supply and the grid connection of the large data centres of Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank, Deutsche Börse [that operates the Frankfurt Stock Exchange], and many others in Eschborn.
On March 16th, 2015, at 5am, the ground cables of an electricity pylon and three distribution boxes of Vodafone went up in flames on the outskirts of Eschborn near the A66 highway.
The side of the State tried to gag the disruption of the capitalist daily life by imposing a news blackout on Monday; however, telecommunication and power supply failures, as well as a large contingent of firefighters deployed in the early morning hours in Frankfurt did not go unnoticed.

“The State terrorizes,
It slings mud, it fools, it besots, it pretends
Its omnipotence is now a myth
Our rage, it makes us stronger, its alienation doesn’t touch us
The store windows of authority are smashed by us with stones
The chains of obedience are melted by us with the rebellious flame that burns inside every oppressed one
Our eyes are open
Our ears capture every sound
Our thinking is crystal
Our fury is unthinkable
Our choice is one: Violent, uncontrollable and constant struggle against state and authority
We are angry, we are rebellious,
WE ARE YOUR WORST NIGHTMARES”
After the disclosure of the escape plan of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire from Korydallos prison, for which its members have claimed full responsibility, the counter-terrorism agency, exposed by the complete plan prepared by the imprisoned comrades, unleashed, with the full cooperation of the known snitches of the mass media of deception, a wild pogrom of arrests of their relatives and friends which resulted in the detention of the mother of Gerasimos and Christos Tsakalos and of the girlfriend of the first one, on charges of participation in a terrorist organization. The targeting of relatives and friends of imprisoned anarchists by the slimy judges and the motherfuckers of the counter-terrorism agency is not something new, as we have seen it repeatedly in the past, in cases such as the wife of Dimitris Koufodinas who was imprisoned in the underground isolation cells of Korydallos prison for participation in N17 [November 17, armed group] and the wife of Kostas Gournas, member of Revolutionary Struggle, who was put on trial for the case.
In this [present] case, the ridiculous accusations attributed to relatives of the Conspiracy, signed by the vile Nikopoulos and Asprogerakas (at the same time the latter one signed the prison releases of the members of the [neo-nazi party] Golden Dawn), display the vengeful fury of the repressive authorities against the unyielding and proud attitude of the imprisoned comrades, putting before them the emotional blackmail of the imprisonment of their loved ones. The comrades and anarchist Angeliki Spyropoulou in response to the vindictive detention of their relatives, are since March 2 on hunger strike until death demanding their immediate release. On the same day Maziotis, Koufodinas and Gournas and anarchist prisoners participating in NFP [Network of Fighting Prisoners] started a hunger strike against the counter-terrorism legislation, Type C prisons and demand the immediate release of Savvas Xiros [injured-disabled imprisoned member of N17]. Apart from the different starting points and theoretical perceptions we may have, we believe that the demands for which the anarchists hunger strikers struggle, concern everyone, so we support their struggle.
Through our action we want to send our strength and incendiary solidarity to the imprisoned brothers of the Conspiracy and to Aggeliki Spyropoulou. Brothers and sisters stay strong, our time will come. On March 5 we torched a vehicle in Messologiou street in Dafni owned by ISS company, which among others provides security services and has also undertaken the cleaning of the sterile spaces of mechanized movement of the Subway, and on March 14 we delivered a truck owned by VODAFONE company in Theocritus Street, in Nea Smyrni to the fire.
“Society is the mirror of the absurd part where I am locked up: a prison made by insuperable walls and invisible cells”
Social control is one of the main consolidation strategies of domination. Its practical applications respond to the historical circumstances that it has to face and they ensure their formal justification for “security reasons”. The feeling of security is referred to as a social good, the common good, ceases to exist as a fundamental achievement of the social structure when it is challenged, when it cracks and the stake of social peace becomes fragile. The destabilization of the social fabric is expressed in the practical challenge, declared by the aggressive actions and the internal hostilities of the anarchist war which develop their own potential, expressing a direct threat to all kinds of authority. Their present and their diffusion are State policy priorities which are articulated basically on two main axes: ‘risk prevention efforts’ and an indefinite extension of the concept of the ‘suspect’.
These two elements are the components of the modern repressive paradigm expressed significantly through the consolidation of a panopticon-like control system. Movements, behaviors, relationships, communication become an observation field from which the mechanisms of authority try to predict by mining information. The security cameras in every corner of the metropolis, targeted searches and area patrols by private security companies and the monitoring of telephone communications are indicative practices of a control policy displayed with the refined image of modernization. The interference in our private moments that aims at extracting and processing information in order to form a more complete profile about an individual, happens through technological progress and its practical applications which especially in recent years seems to grow and target towards that direction specifically. The repressive paradigm is the safety of authority. That’s all it ever was and that’s what it will continue to be.
“Today that the world is rotting and dishonesty and compromise humiliate even the bravest souls, only one tactic is practical and beneficial. To be unflinching.”
Starting from the conclusion that the state and society are inherent elements of this aged civilization, no matter the face and facet they are presented through, being an enemy of individual freedom, we, from our side, welcome to the political foreground the leftist-statists of SYRIZA and the nationalists of ANEL promising to disturb their social peace in every opportunity and with all our strength.
As every herd need its shepherd, so does the majority, which sealed in the elections the perpetuation of its slavery, needs its savior. This time it chose to wait under the governmental table of SYRIZA’s vendors of hope hoping to grab a pittance, waiting the social and economical advancement their Alexis had promised them before the elections. Promises given by SYRIZA were particularly attractive and alleviative for the masses, severely in the regard of the latest period of harsh state politics of the previous governments. Politics implemented by the capitalist states, regardless of ideological differences and colors, aims at the conservation of social peace and that’s why they make sure the resentment and indignation of the masses are absorbed at the source. The digestible left rhetoric and its promises for moderation seemed to have convinced not only the chameleon voters but also a part of the anarchist milieu which rushed to support it, notarizing its flirt with the Left regime. Reality, however, confirms that hopes remain illusions. Humanitarian, reformist or refined authority means nothing more than the assignment of our lives’ administration to others.
The same time that the mob celebrates along with SYRIZA for the so-called victories in the European negotiations, the same time the internal judgments in police [performance] take place while simultaneously a huge terror-show is being organized with invasions into anarchists’ houses, abductions and arrests of people followed by the relevant TV cannibalism, presenting them as products for consumption in favor of society’s TV tastes. It’d be best for the leadership and hangers on of the Ministries of Justice and Public Order to realize that we are not going to stay and watch our comrades and anarchist prisoners being derided. As long as authority exists there will always be rebellious individualities embodying the internal enemy.
“The most important thing, however, is to juxtapose ourselves against society. A behavior that will indicate that we are not going to surrender to society, nor centralize our activities around it, but that we will live by our own terms.”
We call every rebellious individuality, every anarchist of praxis to increase and escalate our attacks in solidarity with the hunger strikers.
