As has been known, in the first days of January 2013, I suffered a serious head injury after an accident. What followed were two successive head surgeries and a three-month stay in various hospitals. Of course, for some time now, I have escaped danger and I’m on the mend, awaiting a final restoration surgery on the skull. Now I am back among my comrades and my brothers and sister of the CCF, which in itself makes me feel better.
I gradually get some insight into the interest expressed during my hospitalization, and I feel the need to thank all those who stood by me in various different ways, from donating blood (which was much needed), to fundraising for covering medical expenses.
I have a special place in my heart, however, for the comrades of the International Conspiracy for Revenge-FAI/IRF who burned a private vehicle in Indonesia, and for the compas of the Insurrectionary Anti-authoritarian Cell-FAI/FRI who targeted with incendiary devices the building of Chile’s national association of penitentiary functionaries and previously attacked facilities belonging to the Chilean Gendarmerie, because of the great honour they have done me by giving my name in the direct action cells that claimed responsibility for these anarchist attacks against domination. Brothers and sisters, you should know you’re in my thoughts and that these actions have moved me deeply. May the fire of Insurgence and Anarchy always keep your hearts warm, and your hands armed against the enemies of freedom.
Finally, I would like to thank all those direct action groups in Greece and abroad who were interested in my condition and wished me a good recovery.
I am happy to see that all this time the project of FAI/IRF remains dynamic and active. I’d like to hope that, in the future, its intensity will grow enormously, and its diffusion will cause fear among the rulers globally.
LONG LIVE FAI/IRF

Athens: Responsibility claim for explosive attack on vehicle of the Koridallos prisons director, in the district of Dafni, on June 7th, 2013 (Greece)

Freedom for anarchists of praxis incarcerated in Italy
i. ‘Return of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire from the ashes’
Only in those moments when our tension for freedom is rejoined with practice do we truly manage to live anarchy, here and now. Unfortunately the dream we carry in our hearts is too great to avoid the risk of finding ourselves up against the monstrous wall of authority raised in defense of the State and Capital. When we really put our life in play, inevitably we end up confronting the hardness there is in the struggle: death and prison.
Nicola Gai, Italian comrade accused in the Olga Cell-FAI case [May 2013]
The Conspiracy of Cells of Fire-FAI/IRF in collaboration with comrades from the Consciousness Gangs, honouring our old and timeless friendship, blew up the private car of the female director of Koridallos men’s prisons, Maria Stefi, as a display of genuine solidarity with our ten imprisoned brothers and sister, Giorgos P., Olga, Gerasimos, Christos, Michalis, Giorgos, Haris, Theofilos, Panagiotis, Damiano, that have taken responsibility for their participation in the Conspiracy.
After almost two years of silence throughout the Greek territory, the CCF returns. Maintaining a common front with the Consciousness Gangs, the FAI cells (‘Antifascist Front’, ‘Unscathed Cell of Vengeance’, ‘Lone Wolf Cell’, etc.) and the Sect of Revolutionaries, we support and strengthen the international conspiracy of the Informal Anarchist Federation/International Revolutionary Front.
The bomb we placed at the vehicle of the director of Koridallos prisons is the first drops before the storm. Or, as it was written in the last communiqué by the CCF against the Greek minister of Justice…
Certainly the necessity for strategy is now clearer than ever before. A lightning does not ever travel in straight repetitive lines. It bursts out unannounced. Even a seeming ‘silence’ is no retreat but quietness before the thunder…
[Clandestine sector, Informal Anarchist Federation/Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (February 2011)]
So, now it’s time to make noise again. Noise against the militarization in prisons and the continuous police raids by the disgraceful scum of the EKAM special suppressive antiterrorist unit. Noise concerning the inquisition at prison councils, where prison service prosecutors and directors are poisoning inmates with fruitless hopes, at the same time that the denied requests for days of leave or conditional release are being stacked on top of each other. Noise for all those unimportant wearing the jailers’ uniform that think they personify Power and thus give orders. Noise about the terrifying silence of the majority of prisoners that have long ago exchanged freedom and dignity with a heroin dose, or day wages, or a more ‘favorable’ prison transfer, or a brand new mobile phone… Noise for the prolonged silence and inaction of a ‘space’ that likes to be called anarchist, but are in essence as petty bourgeois and decadent as the society’s civilization that they’re supposedly fighting.
ii. Chronicle of a war foretold
Over the recent months, a new regime prevails in Greek prisons. The ministry of Justice as well as the prison administration and the public prosecution promote the model of militarization for the ‘correctional system.’ To date there have been dozens of raids by fully armed EKAM cops into prisoners’ cells, as part of the restructuring of prisons. These hooded chickens with the full-body police harness have oftentimes shown ‘guts’ by hitting people in handcuffs. In the correctional brothel of Grevena, the pigs used also taser devices (electroshock weapons) against prisoners handcuffed behind their back. In Koridallos prisons, the night raid operation of forty to fifty EKAM cops was carried out through the ‘courtesy’ of the director Maria Stefi and the prosecutor Troupi, who did not miss out on provocations and bullying from a safe distance.
We know that it never gets dark there, inside your prisons. Therein memories are scratching, and one forgets how the sky looks without bars and barbed wire. If death had its own colour, it should be painted on your prisons. Because the realm of slow death lies on the inside, and one can feel it every single day. It’s hanging from the walls in corridors, it sounds with every locking of a door, it cries silently in disciplinary cells… There is no reason to continue the ‘critique’ of your ‘correctional’ system.
We have said it in the past, when we placed a bomb of twenty kilos on the outer wall of Koridallos prisons three years ago. Our imprisoned brothers and sister from the CCF say it definitely better than we do, through their writings, participating in the international dialogue of the Informal Anarchist Federation/International Revolutionary Front.
Besides, we do not expect something better from the empire of Power that is flavoured with the ‘courteousness’ of democracy. All of its officials handle perfectly their duties.
The judges sat on their imperial throne are handing prison sentences that challenge even the scientific average of human lifespan: ‘Double life sentence’… ‘Two hundred years in prison’… ‘Eighty years in prison’… To them, the names of the accused are ultimately nothing but small annoying ink stains on their thick indictments that must be erased.
Below them are the prisons directors; the small gods of penitentiary institutions that give their commands behind their distant offices having the confidence of being ‘the housemaster.’ This ‘business’ is run by them anyway.
Next to them are the prisons prosecutors, the ‘hand of god’. Their signature opens the doors of ‘heaven’ or ‘hell.’ ‘Conditional release from prison… rejected.’ ‘Five days of leave from prison… rejected.’ ‘Rejected’… ‘rejected’… ‘rejected’… is the only word they know to say. But these are all enemies. The only thing to ask from your enemy is ultimate war.
The axe of criticism along with the nausea of unanswered questions falls heavy on the inhabitants of the country of prisons. It falls heavy on the prisoners themselves, most of whom accept passively their incarceration in the sweatshops of democracy. Far from resembling a subculture of the revolutionary imaginary icon of imprisoned ‘fighters’ as a heightened projection of the living herein, the reality in prisons sounds frighteningly ugly: passivity… snitching… customization… licking the prison service’s ass… getting high on drugs… racism… cowardly cheekiness… self-pity… falsity…
Yet, this pathetic crowd can be transformed at once and become ‘combatant’ when it comes to a bottle cap of smack, to debts and loans, to the sovereignty of each clan. That is when the prisoners’ inventiveness triumphs. A piece of iron turns into a murderous knife in the most skilful hands, and a sock hiding a heavy object turns into a weapon for the inner-hostilities between inmates, who have learned much better how to eat each others’ flesh than they ever did on the outside.
With the same stunning inventiveness, they hide in the most unlikely places smack and other drugs they want to carry. However, this ingenuity is absent when it comes to seeking revenge against those who locked them up and deprived them of their freedom. How many former and current prison inmates were involved in actual revenge on their jailers? How many prisoners found the home address of a chief warden, or ambushed a prosecutor that threw their request for leave or probation in the trash bin?
For this we call minority prisoners, who still have dignity, to plan tens of acts of vengeance.
iii. The FAI/IRF international conspiracy
From our part over here, with the bombing against the director of Koridallos prisons, we coordinate our attacks through the FAI/IRF international network. It started when our brothers and sisters in Chile, of the ‘Panagiotis Argirou’ insurrectionary anti-authoritarian cell, targeted the National Association of Penitentiary Functionaries in Santiago on May 12th.
FAI/IRF is an international conspiracy of anarchists of praxis that sets fire on the defense positions of reformist societist anarchists. It gets rid of the smell of mold that has settled in anarchy seen at amphitheatres, and fills the air with the smell of gunpowder, black anarchy, nighttime, explosions, gunshots, sabotages. This explains why the International Revolutionary Front of FAI and Conspiracy is on top of the anarchist dangers list as cited in recent Europol reports.
Diffusion and informal organizing within the new anarchy into autonomous cells of direct action are what really scare the police of the whole world. Therefore, the State and the enemies of anarchy do not easily forget the anarchist militants who are held captive under their prisons’ authority.
iv. For the brothers and sisters missing…
In Germany, comrade Thomas Meyer-Falk —who is held hostage for participation in bank robbery with the aim of supporting subversive projects— has already served his sentence, but remains incarcerated. In his case, an old law of Nazi Germany was applied, under which prisoners may continue to be kept in prison indefinitely, even when they have served their entire prison term, if they are deemed ‘dangerous to society’… Thomas Meyer-Falk, with his uncompromising attitude and refusal to kneel in front of Power, is still considered dangerous for the social machine.
[Footnote in the original :] In Bulgaria, our comrade Jock Palfreeman remains hostage in prison, after a scuffle with nearly fifteen fascists who tortured a Roma. A fascist fell dead in the scuffle and another was seriously injured. We, for our part, send a signal of solidarity to Jock and a promise that he is not alone.
At the same time, our brother Gabriel Pombo Da Silva is currently incarcerated in Spain —moved from Germany a few months ago— and our brother Marco Camenisch is imprisoned in Switzerland. Our two brothers are confined for many years in the galleys of democracy because of their subversive and anarchic action. Gabriel —who has fought numerous times against the FIES [footnote in the original :] special prison regime— is accused of a scuffle with cops in the German city of Aachen, and Marco is accused of eco-sabotages, escape from prison and armed clash with border guards. While they have become eligible for conditional release from prison, the international state machine tries to keep them hostage, linking them to the ‘operation Ardire’, a case conceived by the Italian State. A police case against the FAI/IRF network, in which apart from Marco and Gabriel our comrades Giuseppe (‘Peppe’), Stefano, Elisa, Sergio, Alessandro are co-accused and remanded in Italy, while some of our CCF comrades imprisoned in Greece are also ‘under investigation.’
The state apparatus and its justice are now experimenting with similar alchemies in Greece. Our brother and CCF member Gerasimos Tsakalos is at the top of the blacklist of interrogators and judges. Currently, he has spent thirty one months on remand —the ceiling is eighteen months— and his pretrial detention was extended to another six months, describing him as ‘particularly dangerous.’ Nevertheless, the charlatans of justice make newer experiments as well. They open yet another case file, the double robbery in Velventos [Kozani], and charge Gerasimos for instigating crimes by delivering a new pretrial detention order to him. He is thus accused as instigator in a bank robbery case that occurred when he was already still in prison. What’s more, we do not forget that last year, when his eighteen months’ remand period was reaching an end, the mop called Mokkas (special appellate judge for the preliminary investigations) put him on the second consecutive remand, while the comrade was in hospital conducting hunger strike.
All this reinforce the certainty that we have, now more than ever before: the liberation of our comrades will only happen through violence, with guns, with an anarchist tromocracy and intensification of the new anarchist urban guerrilla warfare… and then, woe to whoever stands in the way of our comrades’ liberation.
v. Everything continues…
The struggle does not end just because some unimportant folks got tired, and now they only show off their anarcho-medals on the catwalk, in the mire of Exarchia [downtown Athens], nor does it stop because some folks shit in their own pants and hunker down in whatever they’ve put on ice, or in their pseudo-assemblies.
For us, there is no middle ground. They who declare openly their anarchist intentions are facing a decisive dilemma, to either act or give up anarchy forever. There can never be anarchy at the rear of coffee shops and gossiping… Either act or shut up…
In closing the proclamation of our reoccurrence along with the Consciousness Gangs, we would like to dedicate our attack with all our strength to our brothers and sisters imprisoned in the Italian State’s cells, and furthermore send out our conspirative signal to Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai, both accused of shooting Roberto Adinolfi ([footnote in the original :] chief executive of nuclear firm), an act for which the Olga Cell-FAI/FRI has claimed responsibility.
The words of coherence by the sisters and brothers in war are the only ones that have truly weight. The so-called ‘social anarchism’ makes everything revolve around the instrument ‘assembly’, which has become gym of authoritarianism, terrain of breeding big and smaller leaders, whose sole purpose is self-referentiality. The anarchist politicos do everything they can to stave off the new that advances. The new that advances as well as the making of the informal organization (…)
Alfredo Cospito [March 2013]
Courage and strength to the comrades who anonymously strike at the State and Capital, courage and strength to those who give a name to their own rage, courage and strength to the comrades who give life to the Fai/Fri. We are going to give soul and body to the black international, there is a whole world to destroy. Long live anarchy!
Nicola Gai [May 2013]
Brothers and sisters, the rendezvous is on…
We will be back — sooner than you expect…
Conspiracy of Cells of Fire-FAI/IRF
([Note in the original :] Sole and Baleno —Maria Soledad Rosas and Eduardo Massari— were two anarchist comrades accused of sabotage and anarchic dynamic actions in the 1990s. Baleno ‘committed suicide’ in his prison cell. Sometime later, Sole ‘committed suicide’ in the special conditions of ‘house’ detention imposed to her. Their memory lives within us, in our bullets, in our dynamite…)

Anarchist group ‘Destructive Consciousnesses’ take responsibility for the anti-state molotov attack in Komotini (Northern Greece)
Wednesday, May 29th, 2013
In the early hours of Sunday, May 26th the administrative offices of the Eastern Macedonia and Thrace region, in the city of Komotini, were attacked with molotov cocktails.
This was a minimal display of rage against the State, its minions, and every authoritarian structure that, everyday, bring us closer to totalitarianism and enslavement.
The attack was a response to the rotten political system that is terrorizing us on a daily basis. Terrorizing us with imprisonment for those who resist, with taxes, with salaries and pensions that one can barely live from, with the violent repression of strikes and demos, with fascist–parastatal gangs acting unmolested, covering their real faces with democratic masks, so as to guarantee the continuation of domination and exploitation whenever Power and cops can’t finish the job.
We do not demand better terms of slavery; instead we fight for the complete destruction of Power.
We proclaim ourselves refusers of this society and the miserable life offered to us, so we are going on the offensive.
We also send a message to the judges and the State: our comrades, who spend their days and nights in the cages of democracy and Capital that you call “correctional institutions”, ARE NOT ALONE.
Solidarity with the anarchist R.O. Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, and all imprisoned fighters! Freedom for everyone in prison cells!
Santiago: Communique for the incendiary attack against the National Association of Prison Guards ($hile)
Tuesday, May 28th, 2013
Who believed that May would pass without direct action?
With fire we responded again.
Recalling the warrior Mauricio Morales and showing solidarity with the comrades imprisoned in Temuco, we set fire to the entrance of the National Association of Prison Guards, located at Santa Monica steps in downtown Cumming Street of the city of Santiago, on Sunday May 12. With this we add a new action to those which have already been claimed by other groups in “alternative medias” but silenced by the “official release”.
We said in our previous attack on a property of Gendarmerie of Chile in January this year, we will not let the torturers be tranquil in their dens. The criticism of the authoritarian system and prison facilities cannot be separated from the direct attack on those who try to break the will of our rebel imprisoned comrades. Prison guards have decided voluntarily to live as enemies of freedom and are active contributors to domination, in exchange for shares of power that materialize in confinement and to humiliate our prisoners and their families.
In April, the anti-authoritarian comrade Ariadna Torres was punished in the Women’s Prison of Temuco for insulting a judge and the jailers who seized a letter from the companion to the outside.
We sent a copy of this email again to the jailers of Chile so that they know that our anarchist comrades, anti-authoritarians and revolutionary prisoners in Chile are not for the authorities little games, and for every attack the answer will come back with fire, explosions and shrapnel.
We ask comrades of action why there has been a decline in violent activity against the enemy? One thing is the excitement of the street-fighting, but in May there has been fewer direct attacks and planned bombings, arson and sabotage against the wealthy, and also their system of misery. That the anti-authoritarian attacks are sustained over time and not by a police story, depends on us. That the option for revolutionary violence and its connection with the anti-authoritarian struggle (and its various forms of being implemented) be not just a youth fashion, depends on us. Boosting and multiplying the direct actions in quantity and quality depends only on our will.
In May, we remember those comrades murdered by the State in Chicago in 1886; to Daniel Menco, young man killed in 1999; to young Rodrigo Cisternas, worker killed by police in Chile in 2007 after being crushed by a police vehicle with a backhoe; to the compa Henry prisoner since May of last year in Bolivia [currently on house arrest]; and Nicola Gai and Alfredo Cospito, prisoners in Italy, imprisoned for a year accused of the shot to the leg of a boss of a scientific nuclear company.
Regards to the clandestine comrades and prisoners worldwide.
MAURICIO MORALES LIVES IN DIRECT ACTION.

PDF: ‘A Conversation Between Anarchists’ – A discussion about tactics, theory and practice between the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and a few anarchists in Mexico
Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013
A CONVERSATION BETWEEN ANARCHISTS
What follows is a conversation between the imprisoned members of the CCF and a number of anarchists from Mexico. The questions are asked by various comrades of the country, not only by those of the editorial group Conspiración Ácrata. We thank the comrades who helped us with the huge job of translation from Greek into Spanish, and the comrades who helped us in making the conversation with the imprisoned comrades possible. Solidarity greetings to all of them and to our comrades of the CCF!
This dialogue came out for the first time in May 2012, in Spanish, in the Mexican anarchist magazine Conspiración Ácrata.

Translated by bourbourAs/actforfree
5th April 2013: 4th trial for the Conspiracy Cells of Fire case.
One more trial for the actions of the CCF began at Koridallos prisons.
Besides the members of the Conspiracy accused in the same case are also Dimitris Politis, Giannis Mihailidis, Giorgos Karagiannidis, Alexandros Mitrousias, Kostas Sakkas and Stella Antoniou (who are also accused in the third trial which is taking place as well) and Kostandina Karakatsani and Panagiotis Masouras.
Theofilos Mavropoulos read a common statement of the now ten members of the CCF, after which all members of the organization left the room.
“As I have stated in a previous court and in older public texts, I have been next to the comrades of the CCF as a solidarian anarchist, without however being a member of the Conspiracy. From the first moment of my arrest after the shoot out with the cops in Pefki, the comrades of the Conspiracy stood next to me like brothers. Inside prison we shared common worries, tensions and forged our steel passion for liberation through our common escape attempt in December 2011. Today for me the CCF is an inseparable piece of my thought, my desires and my personal mutiny for anarchy.
This is why as of today, here in your court, I state that I join the CCF and share together with the imprisoned and non arrested members the endless course to the anarchist insurrection. Participating now in the Conspiracy, I will read a collective statement for this trial. All of us, the members of the CCF, want to clarify some things.
In this trial, besides us who have taken the responsibility for our participation and support of the Conspiracy, all other accused do not have, neither have any relation with the charges attributed to them.
They never were, neither could ever be members of the Conspiracy.
An ocean of disagreements, perceptions and choices divides us…
The CCF and FAI is an international network of anarchists of praxis
who stand against the enemy with the certainty of those who play it all or nothing and refuse the proof of innocence and legal mitigations.
The Conspiracy and the Informal Anarchist Federation through their hundreds of attacks express the black anarchy which sets fire to the silence of the many and cowardice of the reformists.
All the charges in your indictments are a piece of the anarchist history and the armed course of the Conspiracy through the social desert of mass subjugation.
It is our compass in the unmapped unknown of the anarchist insurrection.
It is the unique moment where theory meets practice.
It is there where the law dies and anarchy is born.
It is there where the sounds of the explosions and the gun shots break the calmness of the crowd.
These moments are our moments. These history is our history.
A history which cannot be put on trial, neither finishes inside the court room.
We are the gasoline, the gun powder, the detonator, the bullet, the gun.
The only thing you will get from us is war.
The Conspiracy is, was, itself.
This is our Anarchy”.
G.Mihailidis read a common statement of his and D.Politis and then left the procedure.
“Give us a copy”, asked the chairman, “this statement is not for you”, answered D.Politis, while the cops were cuffing them.
“We state that: We refuse to participate in the procedure of the court, not only because it is a mean of the state to demean and bend the anarchist struggle, not only because its function aims at the respite of anarchist action,but mainly because we do not recognize any institutional representative of the bourgeois democracy to judge people.
As anarchist revolutionaries we stand hostile against the bourgeios justice which sends people to the rot of imprisonment in order to defend the criminal lawful order of capitalism. Also, we support the anarchist revolutionary war in every of its forms.
We are part of the violent and guerilla action and will defend it as an inseparable part of the struggle.”
The trial continued on April 15th.

Excerpt from Theofilos Mavropoulos’ Statement at Session 1 (Friday, April 5) of Fourth CCF Trial (Greece)
Monday, April 8th, 2013
Received from This is our Job:
“As I’ve already stated during the previous trial and in the texts I’ve released over time, I stood beside my comrades in the Fire Cells Conspiracy as anarchist in solidarity, but without being a member of the Conspiracy.
From the first moment of my arrest, after exchanging gunshots with the pigs in Pefki, my comrades in the Conspiracy stood beside me as brothers and sisters. Inside prison, we have shared concerns, anxieties, and tensions. We forged our passion from steel—a passion for freedom—after the escape we attempted together in December 2011.
For me, right now the Fire Cells Conspiracy is already an inseparable part of my thinking, my desires, and my personal rebellion for anarchy. Therefore, here in these courts of yours, I declare that as of today I am joining the Fire Cells Conspiracy, and I share the endless path of anarchist insurrection together with the imprisoned members and those who haven’t been arrested….”

Session 34, March 21st.
In this session appeared again the head of the Anti-terrorist force who had organized most of the oppressive operations against the CCF. At some point of his testimony he mentioned there are publications which target him and members of his family, this is why he asked for the trial minutes in order to file lawsuits. Also, he mentioned once more that the CCF is a network of autonomous cells of direct action. More specifically he said that each cell can consist of 4-5 people, while he referred to a recent hit (the blowing up of an atm in order to expropriate it), the responsibility of which was claimed by the cell of FAI “lone wolf”.
Session 35, March 22nd.
In this session the head of the anti-terrorists testified about the arrests in Pireus, Nea smirni and Kallithea, about weapons and explosives.
Session 36, March 27th.
In this session continued the testimony of the head of the anti-terrorist concerning the weapons and explosives found in Nea Smirni and the arrests which took place there, in Pireus and in Kallithea. At some point he even mentioned in the court that the minister of protection of the citizen (public order) was informed of he operation by the anti-terrorists, and it was he who gave the order for the arrests. The head of the anti-terrorists also confirmed that during the first oppressive operation against the CCF (halandri case 2009) an arrest warrant had gone out for a non-existing person, a fact that proves the witch-hunt set up against people who had nothing to do with the CCF. Besides, in the frames of the arrests that took place for the CCF, not only the comrades of the Conspiracy have been arrested but also dozens of irrelevant people.
Session 37, March 29th.
In this session the comrades of the Conspiracy did not appear in the court and sent a statement in which they refused to appear as a minimal act of reaction to the military style raid of the EKAM (special forces) the night before in the cells of Koridallos prisons. We must point out here that the night before there was a raid by the armed EKAM in the prisons and more specifically in the 1st wing where the comrades of the Conspiracy are being held. All cells were open and cops came in with their bulletproof shield and pointing their guns, led the prisoners out in the hall with their hands over their heads and then cuffed them. The hooded ones of the EKAM showed special treatment to the comrades of the Conspiracy, who they separated from the other prisoners and held alone. Also, the search in the cells of the CCF was done by the EKAM, contrary to the others who were searched by regular prison guards.
The next day (the day of the court) the comrades together with the other prisoners refused to return to their cells in the afternoon as a reaction to the cops raid. The continuous raids being carried out in the prisons are because of the noise caused by the recent escape of the 11 from Trikala prisons. Also, about a month ago the Media had made an extensive report about escape plans with a helicopter, which according to the journalists was being organized by the members of the CCF from inside prison.

Received from ‘This is our Job’.
All decisions, when it’s a question of freedom, contain death within them. We, through this death, must attain life: a deep breath before the endless journey.
An armed clash took place in Pefki between two anarchists and the police force.
Two of their dogs, Leontopoulos and Drosos, tried to arrest me and my comrade. Our response was armed resistance and the rejection of surrender, with the goal of preserving our freedom, which—as anarchists—we value so much.
The results are well-known: my comrade escaped by stealing a patrol car, while I was wounded and arrested. Also wounded were the two police officers, whom I fired at first, managing to catch them by surprise. Without any doubt, if the pigs had died and the two of us—my comrade and I—had remained unharmed, we would have gotten away.
Additionally—regardless of the fact that my operational priority was to disengage and escape—it would be an honor for me if at the same time I had the blood of two police officers on my hands, not just because they were going to arrest me, but simply and solely because they were police officers.

Anger Unit / ICR-FAI-IRF torch 3 buildings owned by the Major of Aceh Tamiang, Hamdan Sati (Indonesia)
Wednesday, April 3rd, 2013
We speak through fire. To remember and always keep on our mind, our sisters and brothers who are kidnapped by the state and seized behind bars. To continue the urban guerrilla warfare against enemies of freedom. Let the action speak for us.
On March 31, we burned down 3 buildings owned by the Major of Aceh Tamiang, Hamdan Sati. This is our first action done in Aceh, a region where religious fundamentalists in the past threw 64 punks into a rehabilitation camp and made them ‘normal’. But, we want to clarify that we aren’t Acehnese. We have no citizenship because we are borderless. We are the angry ones who light the fire of freedom.
Solidarity to the imprisoned members of CCF and Th. Mavropoulos, Camenisch, da Silva and Italian comrades arrested during the Ardire, Thor, and Mangifuoco operations and to Cospito and Gai. And last but not least, we salute our fire to comrades of Kozani 4 who were recently arrested.

Dear comrades, your letter gave me strength and joy. I have many things to say but I will limit myself to a few of those. The role of the comrades held hostage cannot be but that of analysis, the supplying of the comrades outside the walls with further tools. Beyond the obvious of insurrection and non-subjugation inside the prisons, the struggle continues, and you gave us an example with your resistance. Communication cannot but be carried out through action and this is why we do not have to assign it in some way to the professionals of speech. It is vital, of course, that the news and ideas go around the world. It is necessary however that we avoid in any way the transformation into bureaucracy of a procedure that must remain free from the elite of those who specialize in information. The ability of planning must be the fruit of the action of comrades outside the wall and the analysis of the hostage comrades.
The public dialogue which will take place in Thessaloniki in the frames of counter-information is important, and I am sure that during your intervention you will mention my objection. (more…)

“No es nuestro objetivo cansar a lxs lectorxs con un seco y pomposo discurso político, porque creemos que el lenguaje de unx guerrillerx urbanx anarquista puede ser sencillo y conciso, contestando a las cuestiones que nos ocupan cotidianamente.
Estamos segurxs que las cosas más importantes siempre se dicen de la manera más simple. Además, lo que escribimos en este texto es el resultado de los debates y experiencias que hemos ido acumulando al tomar parte en la insurrección permanente anarquista. En ningún caso se trata de alguna infalible fórmula de pensamiento ni tampoco de un manual de uso de la violencia anarquista.
Consideramos que la edición del folleto ‘La nueva guerrilla urbana anarquista’ constituye un fragmento de una discusión más amplia que no termina con su lectura sino que, al contrario: comienza con ella…”

On Sunday, 10th March an anarchist guerilla group placed an incendiary device at the entrance of the offices of Swift Mail express courier’s company in Pagrati, Athens. This is the shop where the company’s owner wife Reklitou Fotini works. Based on her detailed statement in 2010, the cops were able to mobilize their forces and arrest the comrades of CCF, who on that day sent a mail bomb to the embassy of Mexico using Swift Mail.
The anarcho-nihilist guerilla group “Untouched Revenge Cell, FAI-IRF” claimed responsibility for the act by publishing a communiqué. The comrades dedicated the attack to the imprisoned anarchist guerillas in Greece, Italy, Russia, Holland, Mexico, Indonesia and Belarus.
