Banners, posters and 6 ATMs burning after an attack for the arrested comrades Andreas Tsavdaridis & Spyros Mandylas (Greece)
Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013
The poster by Anarchist Squat Utopia A.D. (Komotini) was released in 21/08 and was translated in English by Contra Info (Spanish and Italian and Greek versions also available). Andreas Tsavdaridis and Spyros Mandylas were arrested in Thessaloniki and accused of participation and responsibility in the Phoenix Project of the Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI). They are specifically accused also of sending a letter bomb to the former boss of the Greek anti-terrorist unit, the same pig who conducted the repression against the comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – 1st Phase. The imprisoned members of the CCF are also accused for all the attacks as well. (more…)

Last night (Sept 2nd 2013) for the first time in living memory but definitely not the last, the flames of anarchist insurrection roared high above the toxic skies of Melbourne putting a swift end to years of local ‘activist’ and ‘social anarchist’ inactivity in this city.
At approximately 7:30PM we gained entrance to Gran Turismo Autos, a luxury car dealership on Spencer St in inner-city West Melbourne via a poorly secured rear window and placed an improvised incendiary device with timer already set under a desk in an office area adjacent to the showroom then promptly fled the building via the same window through which we gained entry.

Censored by the reactionary civil servants who administer Bristol IMC:
The full weight of our entrapment in within this society presses down on us unbearably. Un-named grief, frustration, loneliness and insecurity are the stories of our lives for the most part, stretching back generations. Like money talks loudest and silences all other principles, like concrete and tarmac isolate us from the rest of the planet as it sickens, and like the dominant culture casts humans as robots to work-consume-reproduce-obey… we are physically and emotionally smothered every day by a cheapened, artificial existence keeping us far from our dreams outside the mould.
Awakening anger pierces the fog of confusion from our alienated condition, seeking out worthy targets for the rage. Any notion of truce with the ruling institutions aiming at reform only conforms to the disarmed roles they would coerce us into. Immediate insurrection seems vital. We raise our masks and step out into the night to speak through a language as old as Domination: sabotage and conspiracy. (more…)

Below is a translated text previously written by some Italian anarchist comrades for this meeting, and the poster produced in the last meeting also:
With our heads held high – A call for debate and solidarity in anticipation of the trial against Nicola and Alfredo
On July 5 the preliminary hearing of the trial against anarchists Nicola Gai and Alfredo Cospito, arrested on September 14 2012 and accused of being the perpetrators of the wounding of Ansaldo Nucleare manager Roberto Adinolfi – designer and builder of nuclear power plants – will take place [postponed until October 30th]. The action was claimed by the Olga Nucleus of the Informal Anarchist Federation/International Revolutionary Front.

Phoenix Project #5 : ‘ICR-FAI-IRF / Free Mandylas and Tsavdaridis Cell’ take responsibility for the incendiary attack against a school for police in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan (Indonesia)

Brief Message To The Enemies (Phoenix Project part 5)
We will not talk about “unfair prosecutions”, about “the climate of terror against those who fight”, nor about the “new totalitarian-ism” and things like that. That’s because we know that none of these is new. These are simply snapshots of the ancient war between two incompatible words: on the one side lies the disgusting world of the Authority, of the submissive crowd and of the social cesspit and on the other side, the anarchist insurgents, the insubordinate fighters of the Negative, those who do not bow down to nobody. We will neither talk about the others. The ones who these days feel secretly happy and relieved. Now it’s not the time nor the place to do so. They should bear in mind, however, that the time will come to talk about these things. -
– Freedom To The Wolves of The North
When we said “nothing is over”, it’s not only just words. Our threats will turn into action, time by time, every second we get the chance. And every time, we will bring our actions closer to your face. Directly in front of your guns, uniforms and prison – repressive tools that are often used to kidnap our revolutionary comrades. We will never let you sleep well, because our war is not over yet. (more…)

PDF: Short interview by Contra Info with ten imprisoned comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (Greece)
Tuesday, August 27th, 2013
” … The masks of anonymity fell because of our arrests. Therefore, by claiming responsibility for our participation in the anarchist direct action group Conspiracy of Cells of Fire we now have the chance to put forth and speak about direct and by all means attack on the existent, thus opening a lively ongoing dialogue with all those comrades who act in hostile ways against domination. We feel in this way, and despite the limitations we have as captives in the hands of Power, that we are contributing to the shaping of an offensive front of the black international of anarchists of praxis. Our contribution in all this brings us a ‘step’ closer to freedom, as we mentally escape and our minds and hearts accompany every attack of direct action against the civilization of authority. So we feel more alive, more vigorous and stronger, and our morale is reviving in thinking that the shackles of captivity cannot quell the momentum of our rebellious soul. This is why we contribute with all our strength to the dissemination of anarchist ideas and publications.” CCF-FAI

Translated by Actforfreedomnow!boubourAs
This session was interrupted again because of the hunger strike of one of the accused comrades who are not related to the CCF.
This session began with tension. The court often arranges sessions on the days the comrades of the CCF having visiting hours in prison. The result was the trial delayed to start, since the members of the Conspiracy have clarified that they will not interrupt their visiting hours in order to appear in court. In retaliation, the judges called the prison sergeant, in order to pressure the comrades to be in court “on time”. As soon as the members of the CCF were informed of that, they verbally attacked the judges stressing that “blackmail will not pass”, accompanying their statement with a torrent of swearing towards the chairman of the court. The judges receded on the matter of visiting hours and the trial was postponed again.
The interruption continued because of the hunger strike.
The trial continued after the decision of the appeals council to release the accused comrade on hunger strike. The prosecutor in one of his statements, referred to the political content of the CCF communiques concerning the attacks against embassies with parcel bombs. Because however there was a confusion concerning the separation of political and penal responsibility, a comrade of the CCF intervened immediately, stating that the comrades of the CCF support every word and every action of the Conspiracy, without dividing the political from the penal.
The trial continued this time with the anti-terrorist force constantly adding new documents for attacks of the Conspiracy that took place three years ago.
In this session appeared employees of courier companies as prosecution witnesses. Specifically one prosecution witness who worked at a courier company and opened the parcel bomb (because of the police curiosity of the employees), appeared very stressed (the courier company she worked at was attacked with a bomb by FAI a few months ago, as reprisals for its snitching). She testified that she was pressured by the cops since she could not remember many things and the cops helped in the testimony by writing a part themselves.
None of the prosecution witnesses which were called appeared. The court announced the new session dates, the chairwoman mentioned that because she had booked tickets for her vacation, she wants to interrupt the trial for three weeks. At that point intervened two comrades of the CCF who amidst the swearing towards the judges, mentioned the vengeful transfers carried out against them with the excuse of interrupting the trial resulting in their spreading to various prisons of Greece.
Two prosecution witnesses appeared, of which only one testified, while the other will testify in a future session. The witness that testified, mentioned the shoot out between a comrade of the CCF and cops. She characteristically mentioned that the bullets were raining and when she arrived, she saw the two cops injured on the ground and the comrade holding the leg that was shot. As she testified, what made an impression to her was the calmness and seriousness of the comrade who was not speaking or screaming compared to the two cops who as she said were “whining”. The reference and description of the incidents caused laughter to the comrades of the CCF and embarrassment to the cops.
This session was short since a witness came which was the courier who delivered the parcel-bomb to the Bulgarian embassy. He did not mention anything else and the court was adjourned for August 27th.

Dark Nights #36 – ‘Freedom to the Wolves of the North’
Download and distribute…
August 2013 issue of Dark Nights dedicated to a long hot dangerous summer. International news and reports from the informal network of counter-information and translation. Front page covers the repression in Thessaloniki, northern Greece, against comrades from the Nadir squat after the attacks of the Phoenix Project by cells of the Informal Anarchist Federation – International Revolutionary Front. Front page sidepanel is the contribution of Actforfreedomnow!/BoubourAs to the gathering concerning the informal network of counter-info and translation which took place at Nadir itself previous to the repression.
Inside from then on you’ll find a concentration on the case of the Nadir 2, Spyros Mandylas and Andreas Tsavdaridis, the claim for the letter bomb against Dimitris Horianopoulos, scumbag ex-commander of the anti-terrorism unit which carried out the operation against the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, for which the Nadir 2 were arrested for, plus other assorted news and reports from anarchist comrades on the ground in the struggle. We’re really happy to print a letter from Claudio Lavazza, anarchist comrade imprisoned in the Spanish State, on initiatives of resistance in the prisons there. As well you’ll find a statement from the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire about their court charges of responsibility for 250 attacks, and also you’ll find letters from rebel prisoners in Chile, including Marcelo Villarroel and Juan Aliste of the ‘Security case’ and coming from Switzerland, a letter of hungerstrike resistance from Marco Camenisch and Andrea Stauffacher in solidarity with Georges Ibrahim Abdallah, of the Lebanese Revolutionary Armed Fraction, arrested in Lyon, France in 1984.
This is dedicated to all the prisoners of the struggle who don’t have the ability to be free with their loved ones during the ‘holiday’ time, against the false-culture and the prison-society… From Chile, to Indonesia and beyond….
Long live the Black International

This statement was read in the 4th trial of CCF (250 attacks)
Before I speak my mind about the legal objections raised from the side of the lawyers, I want to make something clear. In this trial, there are four different sides. The side of the judges, the lawyers’ side, the side of the accused, who are innocent and our own side, the side of those who took responsibility for our action in the network of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.
From the part of the lawyers there was a refined positioning in relation to the submission of objections to the court in previous sessions. The lawyers, among whom is also our personal friend Franciscos Ragkousis, speaking in the language of the law, not only highlighted the contradictions of the trial but they also showed its hypocrisy.
We’re talking about a show that does not even keep up the pretenses of its own democratic scenario. But this farce called a trial, leaves us completely indifferent. Often our attorneys appointed by the court, reach a dead end. As they say themselves, the hostile and absolute way in which we face this trial, blocks them and cancels pieces of legal defense. It cancels the possible presumption of innocence, the pleas and defense lines as well as the legal benefit of any extenuations.
To be accurate, your laws are trash for us. Our view on justice is written on the demolition of the courts of Thessaloniki, on the blasting of the façade of Athens’ Court, on the homes of judges, that we burned … Nothing has changed just because some of us were captured. The captivity in prison did not reduce our decision to fight against laws and institutions, not even one inch.
Then one could reasonably wonder why we appear at trial. The answer is simple. When we were free/wanted our attacks were the way we expressed ourselves and now as we remain captured, our word, even in the court of the enemy, breaks the silence. Silence is not acceptable for an anarchist urban guerrilla.
This does not mean that we will resort to the legal corpses of words in order to talk about ourselves. Reference was made to the jurisdiction of the Court. For us, the court lacks jurisdiction. We do not recognize any white-collar as our natural judge. Only we and our conscience can judge our actions. Nobody else. There was also a plea for the poor composition of judges. But for us, there are no good and bad judges, nor righteous and unrighteous. There are simply judges, officials of the enemy in different shades whose names are targets of the anarchist network of CCF, without exceptions.
The issue of the Joint Statutory and the presence of jurors, was also mentioned. We make clear here that we are anarcho-individualists and nihilists and that we have no appreciation nor respect for the “poor people.” Even more, for law-abiding citizens who sit on the benches of jurors. These “poor” people, who are today humiliated and miserable, are the same who worship their bosses and have the same values with them, money and power. They are the people who always whimper but never revolt, questioning but always believing in young leaders/saviors, who always yell but never act. It is high time we break away from dusty revolutionary ideologies – no sheep was saved bleating. Against sheep and shepherds, we are wolves.
As far as the definition of “political crime” is concerned, we don’t seek an evaluation for our actions within the laws and the articles of the penal code. Our actions are defined by ourselves with the way we intervene into the normal course of history in order to derail it. Only through violent derailment of history, is a person able to come across the peaks of his thoughts and actions. We place ourselves far away from the so-called unselfish separation between political and criminal. These terms belong to Power and we don’t use them. There is just the responsibility of saying “this is me and I will continue to wage war by all means necessary”. Theory and action are one. This is the theory of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. The unity of theory and action, for the destruction of the system. As for the unselfishness of the motives of our actions, this just a romantic abstraction, unable to measure up with real life. Anarchy is our egoistic demand to ourselves, to take life in our own hands. To define our existence. To hit what is ugly. More than anything it is an existential bet and not a scheme for social salvation. So we are not unselfish and neither do we act in the name of the pitiful people. We are egoist anarchists and we don’t accept extenuations. We have already chosen the weight of our choices and we are not going to lighten our decisions.
As far as the potential risk of human life is concerned, we have said these things before in other trials. The choices of each one of us, define their life. There are options that are hostile and their exponents are targets for us. The acts and thoughts of an anarchist urban guerrilla aim to multiply the risk to the life of the enemies of anarchy and of state officials. It is clear that the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire contributed to the proliferation of this risk and we will continue to do so.
For all these reasons and countless more, do not bother to answer the objections because we are indifferent to them. We reject the hypocrisy of a democratic dialogue and choose to keep our words armed, as our weapons. Always on the opposite side, always on the attack.

Originally published in ‘My Own’ #6 by Apio Ludd (November 22, 2012).
The nihilist-anarchist doesn’t have to pretend that she belongs to a History or a Movement but chooses how her life will be in her own way, with the methods that she alone chooses with the close ones around her. She does not make excuses why she organises with an intimate group of 2-3 of her close friends. Her creative output circulates at the level she chooses and provides for, are co-created by those who have decided between them that they’ll be together for some activities or correspondence. She knows alegalism and informality suit her and has no pretence of democracy, mass appeal or mass action. Life provides the space for her thoughtful-actions already. She has become the crowd, and in her she has annulled time and society, she can do anything she likes, if she puts her mind to it and accepts the consequences. No one gets out of life alive. To live or to die, and to hold the life of an enemy in her hands – squeeze the trigger, or not, if she chooses. Her life is her own. She is not a victim but an aggressor. The enemy will live and die at her choosing, not theirs. All is decided by her will, which is hers alone. She has no strategy other than seizing her opportunities, and no tactics but her dignity and determination to succeed against the odds.
With methods suited to each individual, linked through action, rather than identity, she follows her bad passions(1) to hell, and there is nothing anyone can do about it.
This is another text towards a collection of writings against civil anarchism, as put forward by Venona Q. and the comrades of Dark Matter Publications. Dedicated to Edizioni Cerbero, Parole Armate, FAI Olga Nucleus and the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.

Two dolphins liberated from Yevpatoria dolphinarium by ‘SEALS on tour’ cell of the Animal Liberation Front – Informal Anarchist Federation (Ukraine)
Tuesday, July 23rd, 2013
2 dolphins were set free from Yevpatoria dolphinarium as a result of a special operation with diving equipment. During the night of the full moon on 20/07/2013 we covered 2 km under water and breached the security perimeter: We cut the nets and entered the dolphin containment pools.
In the next hour we cut a large part of the perimeter barrier. Dolphins encouraged our efforts with clicks and whistling. Their support filled us with joy and excitement.
This has been an unforgettable meeting and encouraging experience for us. Our job done, we left the area of operation. By the way, the prison was equipped with night-vision cameras, but their red eyes were turned on the catwalks and audience seats. Nobody expected our approach from below. As soon as dolphins got wind of freedom and open water, they escaped into the night sea.

‘Commando Mauricio Morales / FAI-IRF’ takes responsibility for the sending of a parcelbomb to Dimitris Horianopoulos, scumbag former commander of the anti-terrorist division (Greece)
Sunday, July 14th, 2013
“Be proud of your actions, because it is through disobedience and insurrection that a bright ray of human beauty is born! Hello anarchists of praxis! Hello brothers and sisters!”
Some thought that we raised a white flag. Some thought we forgot our imprisoned brothers and sisters and sunk in the social swamp, next to the two-legged herd. The bosses, journalists, politicians, society and the ridiculous “anarchist” bureaucrats thought they got rid of us.
For all those, Project Phoenix is a punch in the gut. A punch in the gut because the new anarchist urban guerrilla is here and tears down the desires of all these worms to terminate our actions. Old groups are activated and new are created, with the promise to give life to the nightmares of authority and its subjects.
Comrade G.Tsakalos has been held on remand for 32 months when the limit is 18. We do not care about the provisions of the constitution.
We do not desire the cleansing of institutions, we fight for their destruction. We know that the law is a weapon in the hand of dominance, just like we know that our ten imprisoned brothers and sisters will not be liberated with legal procedures.
We believe authority is total of values which in the core is the citizen-mass human, who lies in the muck of stagnation, where everyone forgets their name and responsibilities. But even in this disgust some have a name. One of them is Dimitris Horianopoulos. During his service as a commander of the anti-terrorist force, the operation against the R.O. CCF was carried out. Horianopoulos is nothing more than a piece of garbage of the complexity of security and the fact that he has retired does not mean that we forgot him. The same goes for the rest of the scumbags in his department. They should know that they are on the top of the target list of FAI/IRF.
We take responsibility for the sending of a parcelbomb to the scumbag mentioned above, which was, unfortunately, detected.
We dedicate our attack to the UNREPENTANT and PROUD members of the CCF, as well as all imprisoned anarchists of praxis, wherever they are. We send our LOVE and RESPECT to all anarcho-individualists, nihilists, and iconoclasts who discovered the fountain of life in the attack.
WE DO NOT BOW OUR HEADS TO NO ONE!
P.S. It was announced that the parcel was ignited after falling down in the post office. The parcel we sent was absolutely safe for anyone not a target. The mechanism activates ONLY if the envelope is opened and not if it falls or gets shaken. We do not know what happened. The only sure thing is that the package was opened.

A CONTRIBUTION FOR THE INFORMAL ANARCHIST FEDERATION – INTERNATIONAL REVOLUTIONARY FRONT
Today, the society is the prison. In the prison’s system, no one can be neutral. Each one of us full of consciousness has made a choice to choose which side you’ll stand for. No unconscious choices. Because a choice, is made by an individual and not by god. Therefore there will be no “civilians” in this asymmetric war. There is only two antagonistic sides: those who fought for the total destruction of the society and those who fought to defend it.
The formation of the society are the alienating forms. Alienated one from the other in many forms of imaginary borders which is protected by guns, laws, prisons, codes of morality and the “faith” of those who believed that the borders are real. And for us, all those who believe in the borders are the enemy.
In our sight, the good citizens and the paramilitaries who where built by the military and have the same attitudes and behaviors like military are enemies who deserved our attacks, the same attacks FAI-FRI sent to their religious institutions, schools, factories, army-barracks, banks and all the supporters of the system named: Society.
Though it’s true that for many people, –even those who are self-proclaimed ‘anarchists’–, that from a fire that destroyed every building we attacked, it does not look that “revolution” would soon arrive. This is a stupid prediction because it puts our actions in their cage of “revolutionism”. An error occurred due to the habit of generalizing all individual events on the social scale, which is where we are enemies of it. They have too long used the ancient glasses, so see how the presence of new urban guerrilla groups is something that does not fit in their glasses. They will even easily use the label ‘euro-centrism’ or ‘latin-centrism’, because they think numbers are that important. Something which is inherited from the classical anarchist thought with a mixture of Marxism that is really disgusting. Those –very Marxist– anarchists who eventually became re-stuck on the same logic with the Leftist: Mass.
That’s why, we are not at all interested in becoming involved in the wave of mass protest against fuel price hikes. Those who took to the streets carrying banners and shouting, because they consumed the same event. They perform repetitive and predictable actions. They shouted until hoarse and expect changes from the parliament or state generosity. They hide in the terminology of “peaceful protest” to hide their inability to attack the oppressors, because they are cowards. They are cowards who only live from the “revolutionary” events to quench the thirst of the “revolutionary” in them.
Although on the other hand, we know clearly there is a small fraction of individuals who remain firmly in war –like in battle that they have lived in the days of yesterday– and not judging a wave of mass awakening that occurred recently in Indonesia as something “revolutionary”. To those whose eyes see clearly, we are really proud to call them comrades.
Each of those who read the communiqué must realize that we have a logic and reasoning that would not be possible according to the logic used by the pacifist, social activists and the Leftist and other citizens –including the social anarchists– which does not comprise part of our group. For us, it does not matter and is also not an issue that is important at this time. Each individual has the right to hold opinions and justifications respectively. Each group will have a different analysis of the foundation with the other groups. Every person is entitled to choose their own path for how to get involved, and take personal responsibility. Each individual must find tactics that suit them and select it.
In the end, the Informal Anarchist Federation-International Revolutionary Front must necessarily be seen as an international project between individuals, cells or groups who share the passion and anger. FAI-FRI is not an umbrella organization or union which collects only those who are called “nihilist-individualist” and “the radical anti-civilization”. But FAI-FRI is a temporary meeting point for acts of solidarity, an act of revenge on the enemy, simultaneous attacks, which are not intended to embrace “a better future” but to see the collapse of the hypocritical society: Today.

PS: To show the hardness of our hearts, we burned down the three-floor clothing warehouse in di Jl Pengukiran Raya No 1, RT 03/03, Kelurahan Pekojan, Kecamatan Tambora, Jakarta Barat. We chose the warehouse so to show to the unionists that the workers goals are not to be workers anymore, and not for eight-hours, democracy inside the factory, freedom of association or other reformist demands.

Jakarta: Anger Unit / ICR-FAI-IRF burn down the third floor of former Sheraton Hotel, ‘The Media Hotel and Tower’ (Indonesia)
Wednesday, June 26th, 2013
“Brothers in chains, comrades in suffering, the battle is at hand. Soon we will launch our attack, intoxicated with vengeance; the enemy will flee, because the Federation of Sorrow is terrible.” –Bruno Filippi
Tonight (June 26) we moved out and brought the fire and burned down the third floor of former Sheraton Hotel, ‘The Media Hotel and Tower’, in Sahari Mountain Street, Jakarta. Our fire is to respond to the call from our brothers in Greece in the Phoenix project and as a gesture of solidarity to K. Sakkas, anarchist in hunger strike action to reach his freedom. We put the incendiary with timer in one of the trash cans in the karaoke room (which is located on the third floor) and let the fire speak for us.
Bring far our revolutionary greetings to the members of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire; Imprisoned Members Cell, to the 4 anarchists who were arrested in Kozani –we never forget you, for Cospito and Gai, to Carla, Ivan, Juan, Marcelo and Freddy, and to Henry and always to the anarchists prisoners in Greece and Italy, and to other cells of FAI – IRF around the world.
We will never say that we are just a few, but we will let the fire speak on our behalf.
Let’s make the Phoenix project as an international project for revenge!

In the early morning of April 10th, we placed an explosive device in the BBVA on Paseo de Husares in Madrid. Our objective is to do the most harm possible to these temples of money, in order to destroy everything that divides and represses us.
Our hate is stronger than theirs. Struggle is necessary for the fall of the capitalist system, struggle is necessary so that our political prisoners are freed and are liberated from the torturers.
Direct action is the path! Not a step back against the State!

This short text is part of a collection of critical writings in progress concerning “civil anarchism”, as put forth by Venona Q. and Dark Matter publications, which is a response to a statement by the UK Anarchist Federation/Libcom denouncing the non-fatal shooting of CEO Roberto Adinolfi of Ansaldo Nucleare in Genoa, Italy(1). Two anarchist comrades, Nicola Gai and Alfredo Cospito are accused of the action, which was claimed by Olga Cell-FAI/FRI. Solidarity to the accused, who are imprisoned in Ferrara, Italy. This fragment is simply a meandering series of thoughts, the results of a notepad and a rainy afternoon, rather than a ‘manifesto’ or the kind of dry political statement that it is in response to.
I. “By having carried out dozens of attacks against targets of the system, with especially destructive material results, we were and will always be precise. We aim specifically against the institutions and the officers of the system, giving special attention to not injure someone who is not a target to us.” CCF
Violence is neither good nor bad.
It is the State’s basis for it’s domination and consent. Any one who breaks this relationship is usually deemed criminal and/or insane. Any acts used in this transgression are usually deemed “unlawful” or further, “terrorism”. (more…)

Bristol: FAI / Borderless Solidarity Cell torch 6 vehicles at UKBA crime team building & smash Tascor transporters (UK)
Saturday, June 22nd, 2013
Hidden inside a quiet business park in Portishead, just outside Bristol, is a UK Border Agency office from where an immigration crime team work with police, including launching raids in the south-west. We visited Thursday night into Friday (with the death of anarchist Carlo Guiliani in combat with police during the G8 summit 12 years ago still fresh in our minds) to set fires that damaged the building and burnt 6 vehicles stationed there – 3 cars, 2 blacked-out people carrier vans (known to be used for dawn snatches of immigrant family groups) and 1 large van. The border regime mercenaries draw the attention of our total contempt the same as any other cop does, and now this long arm of the State has felt that we are close and we don’t stop.
A couple of weeks earlier, high noon on Sunday 2nd at a Tascor corporation depot at a Cribbs Causeway/Patchway area trading estate, 2 minibuses with barred passenger windows had their windscreens smashed and multiple dents to the bodywork of the cabs. Tascor (formerly Reliance Secure Task Management) work for the Border Agency and Border Force to ‘escort’ detainees between immigration prisons and to their deportations, utilizing the consequence-free violence their position furnishes them with such as during the recent forced removals of Marius Betondi and Raul Ally, and are the largest private sector provider of this ‘service’ worldwide (having taken over these duties in the UK from Group 4 Security in 2011). They also run designated holding rooms and short-term holding facilities throughout the UK as well as for UK border forces in Calais and Coquelles, France.
Capitalism profit greatly from a pool of cheap migrant labor, including known ‘illegals’ who are even more vulnerable to the bosses’ blackmail. The State criminalizes those they decide are non-productive, utilizing poisonous nationalism to further divide the exploited (like the recent wave of hatred against anyone thought to appear ‘Muslim’) and to win elections. The ‘lucky’ migrants get to arrive in the slums of alienated Western society and are thrust into competition with other urban poor, the ‘unlucky’ or unprofitable in deportation prisons, in both cases governed by fear and racialized policing. However this sorting of human bodies doesn’t always go as smoothly as planned: mass hungerstrikes in Dutch detention facilities and heavy rioting on the streets of Sweden are recent instances of refusal to submit to such degradation.
We don’t want a world where the tyranny of immigration bureaucrats can mean the difference between life and death, and unique beings are categorized and labelled to wring the maximum profit and subordination from us all. We don’t want the indignity of every movement being scrutinized for the purposed of social control and enclosure, whether at borders, on the housing estates, in school or at work.
The legend has it that ‘we’ are lucky to live here, under democratic totalitarianism with some comfortable cages and technological addiction to escape from reality. But infact we are surrounded by depression, divides of wealth and race and gender, devoid of any earth-based selfsufficiency and dependant on the very machine we hate. This machine is only fuelled by rampant exploitation here and largely in the countries that migrants have fled from, creating a disgusting feedback loop as industrial civilization consumes everything in its path. We want to demolish the myth that there is any good place to be within a global system of interconnected misery.
Our struggle is far from the calls for peaceful (re)integration of ‘illegals’ into this faceless society. We also don’t want to set ourselves up as advocates of homogenized groups of migrants, nor to sanctify them all for their specific oppression. Instead of abstract humanitarian charity, we search for the rebel affinity that may be found with migrants who maybe want more than a different regime, and who breach borders, wound guards and destroy prisons from the Mediterranean to Australia; that may be found in the hearts of those who self-organize, with or without accomplices.
Borders are just one significant expression of the currently dominant order, in a world of divisions both physical and psychological, of walls segregating populations, classes and imaginations. Our attack carries the seeds for another world. One where each and every creature is free to roam as they choose. Our borderless solidarity bursts out like our flames for people struggling for life unchained, for Gabriel Pombo da Silva, the CCF imprisoned members, comrades raided in Belgium, Marco Camenisch, Henry Zegarrundo, the anarchists held in Italy and Denmark, the dignified criminals, lawless fugitives, rebellious migrants and other socially disaffected who arm their rage to fight for liberation.
We would consider this our leaving gift to the UK Border Agency, due to be renamed and reorganized in the future – except it turns out it’ll mainly be “the same jobs”, “in the same places”, “with the same mission”. We know that their same regime of exploitation will continue more adapted and integrated, so likewise our war is perpetually against all forms of categorization and control that attempt to hinder free movement and wild life on Earth. Nothing is over, everything continues.

Communique: International Conspiracy for Revenge / FAI take responsibility for blowing up the vehicle of Argiris Gelbouras, Navplio prison screw (Greece)
Saturday, June 22nd, 2013
The Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI) – International Conspiracy for Revenge claims the responsibility for the placing of an explosive mechanism and the blowing up of the car of known people-guard Argiris Gelbouras who serves at Navplio prisons. This attack is a part of the “Phoenix Project” which began with the blowing up of the car of the director of Koridallos prisons by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.
The choice to strike this specific prison guard was not accidental. Argiris Gelbouras (a.k.a. Rex) is for years now a faithful watchdog of authority. He is one of those in charge of the dozens of beatings of prisoners in the prisons and is at the same time a good friend of the plain clothes cops of Navplio police station. Often he uses prisoners-lackeys of his in order to frighten or hit other prisoners who demand their obvious “rights” or simply do not belong in his circuit of influence inside the prisons. Argiris Gelbouras is a bully in a uniform. If some screws insist on having ‘relevant behaviours’ and take out their complexities and frustrations on the prisoners, we will visit them with worse intentions. Nothing will remain unanswered. The enemies of freedom have names and addresses.
Simultaneously with this attack, we wanted to break the veil of silence which covers up the tortures and the wretched living conditions of the prisoners in Navplio prisons (and not only). Navplio prisons are a cement grave where about 600 prisoners have been “buried” (at the same time when the “specifications” of the building are for 300). In the cells which fit 2-3 people, there are 6-7 prisoners, half of which sleep on the floor.
A few months ago on 4/3 a young prisoner in Navplio was let to die because of the homicidal negligence of some correctional employees. The specific prisoner suffered from tuberculosis and for days was complaining that he is in pain and did not feel well. The answer of the service and the prison doctor was the same which mockingly echoes in all prisons in Greece: “Take some paracetamol (if there is any) and be patient”. “Paracetamol” cures everything in prison… even tuberculosis. That day, the 26 year old died of cardiac arrest when transferred to the hospital too late. On Tuesday 5/3 the prisoners of wings 1 and 3 revolted because of his death and did not go into their cells. The answer of those in charge at the Ministry of Justice and Navplio prisons was as simple as the paracetamol, only now it’s called MAT (riotcops). So two units of the dogs raided the prison and the prisoners returned to their cells. Order and security triumphed in Navplio prisons. After that, for about a month and a half the prison guards of the gated cement bordelo of Navplio repeatedly beat the prisoners in revenge for the revolt and to remind those who disputed it even a bit, of who is boss. Society can calmly continue its eternal sleep. All its ugliness is well hidden away in the prisons of democracy, there where revenge is called justice and punishment correction.
In prison most prisoners become guinea pigs to the sadistic moods of every sergeant or employee. It is not only overpopulation, terrible food, lack of medical staff, but also the daily punishments of the service which roam around like axes over the heads of the prisoners. Because a prisoner in prison does not only have to do the sentence imposed by the scarecrows of justice, but often do double time because of the disciplinary punishments imposed by the self appointed little tyrants who wear a suit or tie and are called guards, sergeants, directors and prosecutors of prisons.
Disciplinary actions, isolation, beatings, humiliating searches, sudden transfers – kidnappings consist a part of the kidnapped daily life of the prisoners. But the authority of the little tyrants does not stop there. It poisons even the little daily moments of those captive. In each prison depending on the sadism of each sergeant or director the prohibitions are on the daily list. Each prohibition is accompanied always by the same answer: “Impossible because of security reasons”. Fans for the summer, heaters for the winter, hobs and utensils, weights for working out, mattresses to sleep on… “Impossible because of security reasons”.
The refusals and irrationality continues even for what the prisoners buy from the grocer. In some prisons you get some foods that in other prisons are forbidden. Of course, there are not many times where the irrationality meets the lure of economic interests. The economic agreements and supplies under the table between the suppliers and the prison directors or sergeants are known in the prison world. All this is known in the palaces of the Ministry of Justice of sensitive leftist clown A.Roupakiotis. Besides, it’s not long since his secretary Kanelopoulos pocketed many millions of euros from V.Milionis and the rest of the ENERGIA clique who took 560 million euro from the society of the self-enslaved, bribed prosecutors and juridical circles in order to be released from prison, at the same moment that thousands of poor-devils are piled up in the prisons. Of course, no one speaks up and everyone bows the head yet again. But no sheep ever saved itself with bleating. This is why we choose the path of the lone wolf. We have no illusions about peaceful changes and fair solutions from authority. Even if democracy created a “golden” prison with equal rights for the prisoners, with hot water, clean mattresses and larger yards, it would always remain a prison, a place of captivity. We are not looking therefore for better solutions, but for all those ways that we can tear down the prisons, with dynamite, with TNT, with guns, with bulldozers…
Simultaneously most prisoners must tear down the prison they have in their heads. The ethics of prison, the mentality of the incarcerated hyena which devours the weak, the pseudo-nationalisms of every kind, the humiliating dependency on drugs, the authority of the leaders and the enslaving of the subjects… This is the only way that the walls will collapse and the bars will bend.
On the other side of the walls, we the “free besieged” choose for ourselves the choice of weapons and dynamite against the prison guards of our lives, the bosses and their directors, the priests and their followers, the cops and their Golden-Dawners, the journalists and their viewers, the politicians and their voters.
The new anarchist urban guerrilla is not a means of struggle, it is our existence itself. All the rest which does not promote the continuous anarchist insurrection is ideological cowardice.
FAI (Informal Anarchist Federation) in cooperation with the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire aims to create a diffuse network of direct action cell in the Greek territory which will strike where the enemy does not expect it. Small autonomous flexible armed cells watch, collect info, sometimes cooperate sometimes not and choose the moment of sudden attack. Only in the attack is there life. We are anarchists of action, chaotic, nihilist, egoists, godless, we are the carriers of the black flags of anarcho-nihilism.
For the diffusion of FAI (Informal Anarchist Federation) and IRF (International Revolutionary Front).
Now and always
Insurrection, Attack, Revenge
SOLIDARITY and STRENGTH to the unrepentant outlaws and the guerrillas of the CCF
