La ciencia hoy se ha convertido declaradamente en un objetivo concreto al cual atacar, desde un pequeño gesto, manifestamos hacia ella nuestro desprecio por ser un templo de dominio e intervención de la vida natural.
La ciencia es uno de los tantos pilares que sostiene la dominación militar, psiquiátrica, heteronormativa, especista, y antropocentrista dentro de la actual era patriarcal. Esta vez, direccionamos nuestras acciones hacia centros donde laboratorios de biotecnología avanzan en estudios y prácticas de intervención genética Esta rama de la ciencia, en nuestros días manipula la vida, por ejemplo, trabajando con células madres, “mejorando” las razas de animales y plantas, interviniendo en alimentos y experimentando en animales, todo esto en un supuesto progreso de la condición de “salud”, un concepto construido bajo las asquerosas lógicas de esta sociedad que transgrede la forma en que la naturaleza dispone de la vida.

English translation via War on Society.
[Noticias de la Guerra Social]
Durante la madrugada del 29 de Octubre del 2014, anonimxs colocaron un
artefacto explosivo en un muro perimetral del cuartel de LABOCAR
(Laboratorio de criminalistica de carabineros) en la ciudad de Temuco, al
sur de $hile.
A las 4:00Hrs Am, detono el artefacto colocado a mediana altura del muro,
en la intersección de Avenida Pedro de Valdivia con San Fernando.
El artefacto explosivo habría estado compuesto por un extintor relleno de un
kilo de pólvora activado mediante un sistema de relojería.
La potente detonación, produjo un boquete de cerca de 60 cm en la
comisaria, estando a corta distancia de un estanque de gas de 400 kilos
que no alcanzo a detonar al interior del asqueroso cuartel policial.
En el lugar no se han encontrado panfletos y hasta el momento ningún grupo
reivindico el ataque. La policía “científica”, acostumbrada a esconderse
tras la neutralidad de la “ciencia” y salir de cacería en el wallmapu
encarcelando y matando a comuneros mapuche, esta vez fue blanco del
La investigación será llevada por los bastardos de la Fiscalia de Alta
complejidad de Temuco, y tanto el gobierno como los perseguidores
decidieron invocar la ley Antiterrorista para investigar.
Ultima Hora: Tras la detonación del artefacto explosivo, la policía habría
allanado una vivienda en Temuco deteniendo a un compañero acusado
supuestamente de tener materiales para la confección de explosivos. La
fiscalía no lo acusa de participar en el ataque a Labocar.
Chile: Explosive attack on LABOCAR headquarters in Temuco
In the early hours of October 29, 2014, anonymous individuals placed an explosive device on the perimeter wall of LAVOCAR (Criminal laboratory of the carabineros [military police]) headquarters in the city of Temuco in the south of Chile. (more…)
Reflections on the advance of repression in Chile and solidarity with Juan, Nataly and Guillermo ($hile)
Thursday, October 30th, 2014
325 receives and transmits this translation from Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras:
Action and solidarity are urgent. All the rest are excuses.
1. And there we go again. Because the war continues.
After an accumulative cycle of street agitation, mass mobilisations and expansion of social conflicts in Chile, power has tried to generate mechanisms favouring the continuity and the reinforcement of the model of democratic domination.
The government on duty has used various tactics allowing to
progressively nullify the discontent so as to avoid the cracks in the questioned social order to spread or become deeper. The mass mobilisations which questioned the economic and social model produced in dictatorship were answered by proposals of social reform recuperating the slogans of the protest movements, including them as part of the solutions configured from out of the State. The critiques against the “political elite” were answered by “opening up” the parliamentary rooms for social and student leaders. The critiques against the “old politics behind closed doors” were answered by organizing round tables of dialogue with citizens’ organisations as to co-opt the demands and strengthen the democratic and participatory image of the State. These things were implemented together with other measures trying to broaden social consensus, weaken the questioning of the dominant order and secure a new cycle of the country’s governability.

La acción y la solidaridad son urgentes. Todo lo demás son excusas.
Reflexiones sobre avance de la represión en Chile.
Propagando la solidaridad con Juan, Nataly y Guillermo.
(Texto de Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras)
1. Y aquí vamos otra vez. Porque la guerra continúa.
Tras un ciclo acumulativo de agitación callejera, movilizaciones masivas y expansión de conflictos sociales en Chile, el poder ha buscado generar mecanismos que favorezcan la continuidad y fortalecimiento del modelo de dominación democrático.
Con tal de evitar que las grietas en el cuestionado orden social se extiendan o se vuelvan más profundas, el gobierno de turno ha desplegado diversas tácticas que le permiten anular progresivamente el descontento.
Así, a las movilizaciones masivas que han puesto en cuestión el modelo económico y social gestado en dictadura, se ha respondido con propuestas de reformas sociales que recuperan las consignas de los movimientos de protesta para incluirlos en soluciones configuradas desde el Estado. (more…)

Solidarity with Juan, Natalie and Guillermo: 3 arrested comrades are formally charged under the anti-terrorist law in recent Santiago bombings case (Chile)
Wednesday, September 24th, 2014
(Translated by Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras from “Refractario”)
On Tuesday, September 23, 2014, the judicial formalization of charges was performed against Juan Flores, Natalie Casanova and Guillermo Duran, comrades arrested on September 18 accused of the last explosive attacks that occurred in Santiago.
In a special courtroom (with two floors), used for large prosecutions, formalization was performed with a great security device that included the presence of anti-riot prison guards and various controls before enter the court room.
The 3 comrades were charged under anti-terrorist law:
Juan Flores: Charged with 5 accusations. Accused as the author of the subway bombing in “Los Diminicos” station (July 23) and the “Sub-center” (September 8 ), actions that were claimed by “Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Chile”. He was also accused as the perpetrator of the double simultaneous explosive attack against two Police Headquarters on August 11, claimed by CIV (International Conspiracy of Revenge). Also accused of the strange charge of “Tenure and processing of explosives for terrorist actions in the attempted grade”.

We dedicate and remember with integrity, through this action and these words Comrade Avalon*, direct action activist of earth and animal liberation.
For now no more to say … that’s all friends.
Abyssal core of action
* Avalon, ‘William C. Rogers’, was a comrade of the Earth Liberation Front in the United States who suicided during the investigation of the FBI Operation Backfire, known as the ‘Greenscare’. Avalon made a statement of escape on the night he died, mailing it to several friends, and asphyxiated by a plastic bag over his head. He defended his choice as a return to the heart of life and death, and from where the agents of the law can never reach us. Honor and dignity to Avalon, who through his example showed courage and determination in the face of the enemy, he who refused the trial and prison process and made his choice in an impossible situation of betrayal. Let the blood shed from the snitches and the collaborators who still live, those who ratted on their comrades of the Earth Liberation Front. Fire and rage against each and every cage.
“To my friends and supporters to help them make sense of all these events that have happened so quickly: Certain human cultures have been waging war against the Earth for millennia. I chose to fight on the side of bears, mountain lions, skunks, bats, saguaros, cliff rose and all things wild. I am just the most recent casualty in that war. But tonight I have made a jail break — I am returning home, to the Earth, to the place of my origins.” Bill, 12/21/05 (winter solstice)

(Translated by Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras with info from Refractario)
During the morning of September 18, 2014, several raids shook Santiago seeking to give results to the latest explosives attacks. Finally the police in a broad operation gets the arrest of 3 comrades. According to the press and the police, detention realized thanks to a investigation from the security cameras inside the subway train and a ticket-card used by the suspects.
Comrades arrested are:
Natalie Casanova Muñoz (26 years),
Juan Flores Riquelme (22 years) ,
Guillermo Durán Méndez (25 years).
When comrades were transferred to the “Jusitice Center”, they keep their heads up and Juan shouted “Down with the Police-State!”
The press, as the power carrion, has been reporting about the “dangerous individuals” that “belong to an hermetic anarchist cell”, developing their classic campaign creating an internal enemy. (more…)
International Conspiracy for Revenge claim responsibility for the coordinated attack on the 39° Bosque and 1° police stations in Santiago (Chile)
Sunday, September 21st, 2014
On August 11 we carried out an attack on the 39° Bosque and 1° police stations in Santiago. We wanted to show that it is possible to hit the police right in the nose. It ended up as we would have liked as some bastion of law was injured.
/”they are mortal and their laws are destructible”/
We love to see wounded or dead cops whether in conflictual clashes or acts of sabotage.They should know that anyone of them could face the same fate as the pigs Moyano, Vera, or Bobadilla; they are all responsible (and volunteers) of belonging to a military institution that represses the population on a daily basis and orders us to comply to the laws imposed by the powerful.
It should be clear to them that each aggression that has been committed by the pigs of power is not forgotten, that their condition of impunity will not last long, they are human beings, mortal like any other.
Let us dare to confront them, there is every reason to detest the existence of the police, ratis, repressive forces, and/or guardians of the rich. They are the military force of the bourgeoisie in charge of suppressing and punishing every attempt to recuperate that which has been accumulated for centuries thanks to exploitation.
Whether in robberies or protests, they are those in charge of exerting fear on the population. Their essence is the defense of the system making us submit to its miseries. They and their bosses should be beaten and attacked with every means and all their manifestations.
We remember each blow given and yearn for the multiplication of direct attacks against their repulsive authority, as the preparation of material needed in order to cause the desired damage is minimal.
We remember and align ourselves with the compañerxs who carried out the failed attack on January 1, 2014 on the 14° station in ñuñoa, we also would have liked to see how this powerful device detonated and we celebrate the attack on the Lo Prado station!!
We send our fraternal greetings to all the families and loved ones of those fallen at the hands of the police.
Present in our minds are Matias Catrileo, Jhonny Cariqueo, Claudia Lopez, Daniel Melinao, Javier Mendoza Collio, all are present, dead here or in whichever part of the world they are part of the social war.
We are adding to the initiative of the compas in Indonesia and we make up part of:

Responses to Attack on Transit Hub in Chile
Our best intentions, visions, ideas and methods can always end up in the hands of fools or enemies who seek to undermine us. As has been written by various individuals or groups over the last couple of weeks, a critique of society as a function of power and domination does not legitimate attacks in public places full of random people whose relationship with the power structure is unknown and with such a high probability of error and accident. This kind of attack is not the logical conclusion of our arguments and analyses, although individual civilians may at times constitute a target when they clearly ally themselves with power in a given situation involving their active complicity and force. Moreover, I think that even to put one’s faith in the police to ‘do the right thing’ and evacuate an area is an error. We have to carry out rigorous logistical checks and balances on our explosive/incendiary deeds without putting misplaced trust in State functionaries. The State has much more to gain from allowing civilians to be wounded or killed as a result of such deeds than from rescuing anarchist groups from their own stupidity, if that is indeed who was responsible – the para-state and far-right often use these kind of tactics, not anarchists and nihilists. I cannot talk for the CCF, but I don’t feel this action to be an expression of the words and deeds of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire in Greece whose intelligence, integrity and wisdom of deed I trust absolutely, as an expression of my own projectuality. V.Q.
I point out that from my understanding of the Angry Brigade of UK, that this group would have never have carried out such a poorly executed and suspiciously ignorant attack as the ones performed in Chile against the subway targets. The Angry Brigade were influenced by situationist and libertarian-anarchist ideas, who spoke directly about class violence and the victory of the organised working class. And so, not only do the Angry Brigade have absolutely nothing in common with the operational parameters used by whoever made those attacks, but they seem to have also very little in terms of ideas.
Life in the UK and Ireland has some important lessons for armed direct action groups from one of the longest running and dirty counter-insurgency wars in modern history, the struggle against British colonialism and sectarian violence. Any understanding of virtually all armed violent action in UK and Ireland is informed by that experience, as were the Angry Brigade. All of those who are old enough to remember, on all sides, know what it is like to live under the constant threat that we could be killed by an indiscriminate attack because of the war going on.
And so, despite being very sick of the herd and its values, I remind of the bombing of the town centre of Omagh, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland on Saturday afternoon, 15 August, 1998, which killed 29 and injured 220, and was carried out by men of the Real IRA under surveillance by the British security services and GCHQ, the UK government communications surveillance and spy agency. The bombers carried the explosive device over the border and into a busy shopping district at a peak time and gave a clear warning. Unfortunately, the rest is politics. L.
(Translated by Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras)
On Monday 8 September, a bomb exploded on a transit corridor of a commercial center near to a subway train station at 14 PM. 14 people were injured, including passers and workers that worked cleaning the building.
Government pointed to anarchists, talking about “struggle against terrorism” and that kind of things. They mentioned [smeared] a CCF text (“Let’s become dangerous”) and the anarchist meeting in Mèxico in December, 2013, as examples of instances where there were apparently reflections on the idea of attacking civilians. Also they mentioned about comrades from Chile that travelled to Mexico.
In the first day after that fact, some people and comrades thought that it could be the action from fascist or paramilitary groups, because the place, really, is not exclusive of powerful people.
Also, some anarchist action groups spoke about the importance of making clear and not blind attacks, considering civil people as targets only when they are clear representatives of power and never leaving the safety of our actions to chance. (more…)

Responsibility claim for the burning of police vehicles in Keynsham by ‘Uncivil Disobedients / FAI’ (UK)
Saturday, September 6th, 2014
From the midst of the terror-fervor, the advance of the surveillance state, and display of force by the law.
This is to report incendiary action bringing life to our hatred for the police, inkeeping with our wider effort for the eradication of authority and it’s civilisation and with not a step back before repression which fails to inhibit us…
It took place in Keynsham (on 3rd September) at the police-station where a fleet of support group vans and other marked force vehicles are kept close to the ring-road which skirts Bristol. We rigged all three mobile-CCTV vans at their charging station inside the perimeter to the side of the cop-den with short fuses, then more fuel in containers was primed to incinerate an extra riot squad minibus parked to the front after we’d left the area. When the fires were detected, the riot bus and at least one of the camera vans were already burnt. According to the media an individual was arrested shortly after, who they are probably even now dimly realising they have no evidence to charge because we alone are responsible for the blaze under their snouts.
The police-station is situated close to the massive Keynsham Police Centre due to now open which is also to assimilate the functions of the old Bath and Radstock stations as part of a newly-constructed series of the force’s multi-purpose detention suites, crime investigation centres, an operations base and the tri-force firearms facility which was burned down by the hands of anarchists one year ago.

Burning barricades and molotovs: ‘In response to the international call for anarchist prisoners of the world’ (Chile)
Sunday, August 31st, 2014
International week of solidarity with imprisoned comrades. We go out decisively and fearlessly to amuse ourselves breaking with their dogma of tranquility and legality. With the rebellion of José Huenante, boy assassinated in democracy, in mind.* Cops, screws, guards and every authority will burn with our warmful joy. Propagate the revolt.
In the defined night
the routine’s twilight
infinite particles conspire in the dissocial shadow.
In the spectra of nothing
desires are moaned
rage is howled
the forgotten are shouted
the lost echoes are roaring.
In the disrepair of one power citadel
frantic machines, swarm of slaves,
makeup powders and devices of control.
The rebellious schizos, barbarian!
We deny the everyday existence: Prisons,
schools, families, madhouses, asylums, psychiatrists
and every individual nullification.
We open the wings to come out of crevices and caves,
to bifurcate the fire in every alley,
security perimeter and place of domination.
May it be known that we overflow in all directions,
towards all the points.
We are infinite particles looking for the explosion.
A small contribution from the territory called Chile, Talca of Maule region.

The action took place on Wednesday, August 27th; a roadblock in one of the city’s arteries, at eight in the evening.

Screening of “Sacco & Vanzetti” film in Riga (Latvia) + Sacco and Vanzetti… a 87 años de su ejecución, con la memoria anárquica intacta ($hile)
Wednesday, August 27th, 2014
From Riga, Latvia:
On August 24, 19:00, in the bar ‘Chomsky’ a film about “Sacco and Vanzetti” from 1971 was shown. After there was a discussion of the film and a talk about the activities of the Anarchist Black Cross and anarchist prisoners of Russia and Belarus.
This is a text written by Biblioteca Antiautoritaria Sacco y Vanzetti in Santiago, $hile, on the 87th year since the murder of Sacco and Vanzetti by the American State:
SACCO Y VANZETTI… a 87 años de su ejecución, con la memoria anárquica
“El enemigo nos quiere muertos y nos tendrá muertos para defender el
privilegio y la tiranía, para humillaros, para acobardaos, para
venceros, destruiros y encadenar los pueblos al carro de su esclavitud
(…) Y este mismo enemigo, clava sus inmundos tentáculos en la carne de
todos los pueblos de la Tierra, prepara el más grande militarismo del
mundo y se apresta a esclavizar la entera humanidad. Hay que aplastarle
El 23 de Agosto de 1927 en Massachusetts, EEUU, son ejecutados en la
silla eléctrica Niccola Sacco y Bartolomeo Vanzetti, dos inmigrantes
italianos y reconocidos anarquistas. Tras 7 años de juicio, son
encontrados culpables de robo con homicidio y se los condena a morir
El caso de los compañeros Sacco y Vanzetti es quizá el que ha tenido
mayor repercusión internacional, es sin duda un caso emblemático por
todo el proceso judicial que los mantuvo en prisión y que generó
reacciones a nivel mundial. (more…)

A brief update on the present situation, received from the Chilean comrades:
Spread the revolt for the total liberation with all forms of struggle, and against all authority!!
In the last few weeks, we have seen through the media how the Powerful have initiated a new offensive against the anti-authoritarian/anarchist community. Once again, we can see how the newspapers and news channels have propagated the idea of trapping those responsible for various arson attacks and explosions that have taken place since 2011.
Alleged suspects are turned into convicts through the media, with the end of validating future repressive waves unto so-called “public opinion,” unleashing possible identities, accusations, and investigative lines.
This is not a new context considering the continuation of strategies that those in power have developed throughout history to annihilate all forms of radical expression and revolutionary struggle. Moreover, we have a recent case in 2010 that unleashed a mass media campaign that prepared the way to “Operation Salamandra” led by then Prosecutor Peña, through which many homes, social centres, squat houses were raided under charges for the alleged [Chilean Anarchist] “Bombs Case”. The accused spent a year in prison and ended up being absolved by the Courts due to lack of evidence. (more…)

From instintosalvaje, translated by waronsociety:
Note by Instinto Salvaje: Our solidarity with our compañera Tamara Sol Farias Vergara is unrestricted, therefore we cannot be quiet about the situation that is happening with our compañera and her family. We only wish to express our irreducible love for our sisters and brothers in prison and for their families and close circle. And to our enemies we want to make clear our hatred with a few words and in each action that each individual and compañerx deems fitting.
To our friends, compañeros and compañeras:
We are the family of Tamara Sol Farías Vergara. As you are already aware, Tamara has been a prisoner in the San Miguel prison since January 22, 2014. In visitation on Monday, June 16, which was a family-only visit, we had serious problems with gendarmería due to the humiliating treatment we were submitted to. The guard who reviewed Tamara’s grandmother, Luisa, who is 75 years old, made her get naked and do squats, reproaching her that she was wearing a lot of clothing. It is worth mentioning that the place where the prisoners receive their families is a gymnasium with a roof but open on both sides, where the wind and rain come in, getting the entire floor wet and creating an extremely cold and damp atmosphere. Then this same official shouted at another inmate’s visitor because her months-old baby was soiled during the review, shouting at her that this could not be, that she had to change her before coming in! This mother arrived in tears to the gymnasium designated for visitation. (more…)
