London: ‘FAI – Fires on the Horizon – Nikos Romanos’ take responsibility for the burning of a security vehicle (UK)

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

Act for freedom now! receives anonymous:

Anarchists in action. Today 3/12/14 we set on fire a security car in London in solidarity with our brothers Nikos Romanos. Yiannis Mixailidis, Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, Dimitris Politis, they are on hunger strike in Athens.

That night we kept our eyes fixed on the horizon and saw many falling stars drawing their own chaotic paths. And we counted them over and over, we made wishes, calculated the odds. We knew that our desire for a free life had to step over all that oppresses us, murders us, destroys us, so we dived into the void just like the shooting stars we were observing. Since then innumerable stars have fallen, perhaps it’s time for our star to fall, who knows? If we had the answers ready, we wouldn’t have become what we are, but selfish bastards who would teach people how to become rodents that eat each other as they do today. At least we still remain implacable and stubborn like the people of our kind. And those of us who closed their eyes in pain and travelled far continue to keep their eyes stuck on that night sky we also observed. And they watch us fall, beautiful and shining stars. Now it’s our turn. Now, without hesitation, we fall.

We salute! our comrades of F.A.I. Torches in the Night – Earth Liberation Front.

Interview by CCF – Imprisoned Members Cell with Alfredo Cospito (Greece, Italy)

Monday, December 1st, 2014


From the Greek prisons to AS2 unit of the prison of Ferrara: a few words of “freedom”.

Interview by CCF to myself.

Before answering your questions, I’ d like to stress that what i’ m about to say is my own truth. One of the many points of view, sensitivities and individual nuances within that crucible of thought and action that goes under the name of Fai-Fri.

Informal federation that, rejecting any hegemonic temptation, represents a tool, a method of one of the components of anarchism of praxis. Anarchism of praxis that only when it is informal, without being forced into organizational structures (specific, formal, of synthesis) when it doesn’t seek the unbearable consent (therefore rejects politics) it can be recognized in a wider chaotic universe called “black international”.

To understand this better, Fai-Fri is a methodology of action that only some of the sisters and brothers of the black international practice, it’ s not an organization nor a simple collective signature, but a tool that aims towards efficiency, whose objective is to reinforce cells and each comrade of praxis through a pact of mutual support based on three key points: revolutionary solidarity, revolutionary campaigns, communication between groups or individuals:


Each group of action in the Anarchist Informal Organization is engaged in showing revolutionary solidarity to comrades who are arrested or are on hiding. This solidarity will show itself mainly through armed action and the attack against men and structures responsible for the imprisonment of comrades. Solidarity will always be practiced as an indispensable feature of anarchist way of life and action. Of course we do not refer to legal and technical support: bourgeois society offers a sufficient number of lawyers, social workers and priests, which means that revolutionists can be engaged in another kind of activities.

‘Queer Meinhof / FAI’ take responsibility for setting a city police car on fire – Warsaw (Poland)

Friday, November 28th, 2014

Last night (25/26 November), the first spark of fire that burns today in France, Greece and USA, illuminated the space under a car of the city-police, which was parked outside the police station in Mazowiecka street in Warsaw.
We’d chosen the target not by accident.

The institution of the City Police – summoned in purpose of cleaning the city-parks had become a paramilitary group, who ‘cleans’ mainly homeless people, hustles kids that smokes weed or skip school. So called routine ‘interventions’ usually end up with brutal violence – petting boys in uniforms’ egos.

That’s how on the 3rd of October, the City police’s intervention ended in Szczecinek – by dumping a 20 year old beaten to a pulp in front of hospital. For that, or for other interventions of this type – no policeman was ever held responsible – so we’re taking the justice in our hands.

It disgusts us that they’re walking the streets with impunity and pride. Just like the murderer of Max Itoya – Artur Brzeziński, Mike Brown’s executioner – Darren Wilson or the killer of Remi from Testet. There is no, and there will not be the agreement for that from the part of the society. We will not leave them alone, because when they put on their uniforms, they stop acting as people, they stop being people in our eyes, they’re the bodyguards of the government – the money advocate.

Politicians recently are racing in postulating to dissolve the city-police. Neither the orders from up there, nor any reform that would dissolve the services under a concrete name (not holding responsible these bandits in uniforms and in the same time helping to grow other services) is not going to be enough for us.

The idea of dissolving the city-police that we’re putting into practice is a physical confrontation. It will not leave out the police, prison guards or border police. We know, that we’re taking part in the global wave of resistance that already takes place and will grow stronger, also here – in Poland. So, don’t be afraid to act! let them finally feel the fear, that they’re serving us. Destroying the law enforcements isn’t difficult – start from killing the cop in your own head.

Our symbolic action we’re dedicating to the memory of Remi killed by the cops in french Testet and to friends behind the bars.

Instead of a minute of silence – a whole life in struggle!

Fire to all the prisons, closed detention camps, psychiatric wards and police stations!

Nikos Romanos: Liberating Journeys of Attack (Greece)

Saturday, November 15th, 2014

via contrainfo:

The following text is intended to be the continuation of a dialogue on the tools of anarchist insurgency and the ways of organizing ourselves; a dialogue that was initiated at an international anarchist encounter somewhere in the countryside of France and now continues from a prison cell in Greece.

The opinions expressed here are my own personal views, so it should be clear that they promote a particular position on the issue. However it is not desired to have one position prevail over all the others; what matters is how the various different, yet complementary, points of view communicate and interact with each other. In the face of an enemy that’s very flexible as regards the use and multitude of means and forms of attack, the diversity of considerations and practices on the part of anarchists is self-evident. Whichever different perspectives cannot be promoted dogmatically but rather based on a rationale of multifaceted attack.

First we need to talk about the very concept of organization, a word quite misunderstood in anarchist circles.

We face an enemy with complex and complicated functions. One of the main characteristics that make the enemy powerful is the constant evolution and organization of the social paranoia we are experiencing today: a technological, military, architectural, civil, industrial, economic, scientific organization. Every aspect of this world is being organized, constantly correcting its imperfections through an intelligent system which has a great number of servants. (more…)

PDF: ‘Reflections from the Country of Nothingness’ by CCF-FAI/IRF & Theofilos Mavropoulos (Greece)

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Greek Prisons (2012): ‘Reflections from the Country of Nothingness’

Greek, Spanish and English language PDF pamphlet formed from a statement written in 2012 by CCF-FAI/IRF (1st Phase) & Theofilos Mavropoulos.

When a door closes behind you, another opens ahead. That is how we felt when the door of the prison opened, closing the door on the era when we were free…

A new world appeared before us. A world narrow and built of concrete, where good day and good night are abolished.

Prison is a shadow apart in the transparent galley of democracy. Here, time is uncountable and days push slowly against each other, melancholically, indifferent, mechanical. Here, the seasons of the year die within a calendar hung on the wall, and nostalgia takes its revenge, disinterring memories, emotions, loved ones, sceneries and thoughts that never materialized into praxis.

But the wolf that exists within us stays awake and hungry. All these days, all these months, all these years we feed it with thoughts, desires, concerns, plans, rage, and it swallows the bars, the barbed wire, and the locks to run free again some unknown day.

Cartago: Incendiary attack against butcher shop by ‘Savages of the Earth – ELF/ALF/FAI/FRI’ (Costa Rica)

Saturday, September 27th, 2014

via contrainfo:

Various cells have initiated a series of small acts of sabotage in Costa Rica for months now, yet we really didn’t expect that our action would have such a strong impact. It is the first action of this type in this filthy country in many, many years…

For this reason we saw the need to claim responsibility for this action, thinking that many more people would gain strength and shake off the fear that torments us every day, this fear that doesn’t let us go any farther…

The technological control is steadily increasing, that’s why we decided to take control of our lives for a few moments and carry out this action, which is not an end in itself but the means by which we get revenge for our slavery. On Thursday, June 19th, 2014 we particularly attacked a butcher shop in Cartago with an incendiary device. The fire exceeded our expectations, and according to reports in the Press the total damages were more than 40,000 dollars. The meat industry is a clear reflection of this society: domestication, minimum respect toward nature, and money as a sacred god behind every move. (more…)

Dark Nights #41 : ‘Against all States – Against all Gods’ – Sept 2014 (ACN)

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

24 pages B&W : Dark Nights #41

International anti-prisons insurrectional newsletter Dark Nights is back after a summer break. Front page news is the communique by ‘FAI “Sacco & Vanzetti” Circle of Propaganda by Life & by Deed’ for the incendiary attack prior to the NATO summit in Wales, against BAE Systems Arms Development Centre. News of this new anarchist urban guerrilla attack taking place has been suppressed by the regime, as they are frightened of the spread of the anti-system attacks and the damage to the image of the blood-soaked company. The fiery attack took place in Filton, Bristol, where many military-industrial-technological companies are situated, and proved that the direct action groups can strike the military-industrial complex in their closed sites.

Primary article by individualist nihilist-anarchist comrade Venona Q. is about authoritarian fundamentalism and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The brief article is about raw power and the total liberation war against all Gods and States. Against “progress”, the “West”, “democracy” and “civilisation”, the writer sounds a sharply critical and vengeful cry against the mullahs, militias, bureaucrats and fundamentalist murderers of the Middle East and the West alike. Reminding us of the continuous visions of the fight for human dignity against dominion by concepts, authorities and the power of death.

There’s an incomplete round-up of direct action sabotages, attacks and riots in our chronology, compiling incidents since late May 2014, and a complimentary section giving coverage to the International Week for Anarchist Prisoners which recently took place, that was organised by the world-wide Anarchist Black Cross groups, counter-information groups, action cells and others. During the last few months there have been intense efforts taking place in prisons across Europe, as prisoners in Greece carried out a campaign and hungerstrike against the Type C prison plans, where Domokos prison will be turned into a huge Guantanamo. The hungerstrike is finished now, but the prisoners of Greece and their friends and relatives have vowed to undertake an struggle by all means. This has now spread into the prisons of Germany and Switzerland, as prisoners there also found common cause and solidarity with the fight taking place and carried out their own hungerstrike mobilisation. This kind of trans-border action is a vital sign of a re-construction of the new internationalist struggle happening and we are with the prisoners in struggle in our hearts, words, thoughts and actions.

And there is the usual selection of prisoners letters, including the text by imprisoned anarchist Carlos ‘Chivo’ Lopez in Mexico about informality, an article by the imprisoned members cell of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire about negation, coherence and refusal in the active sense during the trial prosecuting them, plus news reports and more writings from our imprisoned comrades enabling their wishes, dreams and struggles to escape beyond the walls of the prisons.

Tamara Sol, Francisco Solar, Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Graziano Mazzarelli, Chiara Zenobi, Nikos Maziotis, dozens and dozens more… To the streets!

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.

PDF: Parcel Bombs – Chaotic Manuals of Sabotage (Atlantis of Practical Theory)

Friday, September 5th, 2014

Parcel Bombs – Chaotic Manuals of Sabotage


For all anarchists of praxis, nihilists, anarchists individualists, anticivilization comrades. We send you our love and blaze from the Atlantis of Practical Theory. A few months ago, CCF put a proposition on the table of the Black International.

In the communique Lone wolves are never alone…, published in the brochure of the comrades of 325, it was written: “We do not share our choices only by speaking and writing texts against the state and its society but also when we offer each other possible practical ways, to make our theory practice”.

This proposal has already been set in motion. Siblings unknown to us who share the mutiny of FAI/IRF, and comrades of praxis have published manuals for constructing explosive devices and similar chaotic arts of sabotage. Wanting to contribute as well in creating an international diffusive-chaotic anarchist urban guerrilla, we share with you some practical ideas and some diagrams longing to be detonated…

We know well that this is just a first gesture from flame and gunpowder and that countless destructive desires are waiting for us to meet again… Chaos is our friend…

We Create 10, 100, 1000 conspiracy cells

For the Spreading of FAI/IRF
For the Black International

Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – FAI/IRF
International Sector for the Spreading of Heretical Arts (Occasionally Spectacular) of Sabotage.

PS.: All plans and manuals of destruction are not anyone’s property, on the contrary it is a practical meeting of a thousand moments, chaotic thoughts, passionate feelings, countless denials, armed desires… They belong to anyone and everyone who cover their faces with hoods, and wearing gloves, the destroy the civilized world seeking unknown possibilities of a free and wild life. That is why every comrade who comes across these chaotic manuals of sabotage can freely spread the knowledge and share them as she/he sees fit, in every discussion or meeting, or, of course, he/she can publish them in the insurrectionalist anarchist sites, thus creating the possibility of the new Anarchy…

Practical theory smiles at us!
Let us burn this world…

Filton, Bristol: ‘FAI “Sacco & Vanzetti” Circle of Propaganda by Life & by Deed’ take responsibility for an incendiary attack against BAE Arms Development Centre in the context of the NATO Summit (UK)

Saturday, August 30th, 2014

In the context of the NATO summit in Newport, a cell of the Federazione Anarchica Informale (FAI) has struck BAE Systems in Filton, Bristol:

We mounted our attack against the BAE Systems arms factory in the Filton area of Bristol by setting a fire against the fuel tank outside the onsite Advanced Technology Centre (Impact Facility – High Power Electro Magnetic Facility section) on August 29th. Today we now announce carrying this out in the context of the NATO summit in Newport in five days. Britain is rife with military industrial complex structures all year round and everyone can draw her or his own conclusion.

BAE Systems are possibly the largest so called defence multinational and they are Britain’s largest manufacturing employer. Some of their major projects with the British Armed Forces alone are the NATO Eurofighter jets and nuclear submarines.

From artillery and aerial drones with specialist communication systems to the Israeli Air Force F16 fighter bombers and the shackles used on detainees in Guantánamo Bay you can find BAE Systems across the world behind imperialist conquest and the death or immiseration of millions. The company now has branches in criminal intelligence and investigation that deal with matters like cyber threats to the banking industry and was contracted by the European Union to devise the Strategic Crime and Immigration Information Management System : essentially an international police database. They are in line to profit from managing the transition of analytics from analysis of physical locations to analysis of individuals and how they interact for the advantage of law enforcement and intelligence agencies.

The factory where we hit produces hardware including that of naval frigates and combat vehicles and there hundreds of staff with the Advanced Technology Centre design cutting edge weaponry for global markets. Just a few of their specialities are :

Abnormal behaviour detection & video analytics
Bio-inspired technology
Micro & nanotechnology and smart materials
Technologies for covert & secure operations

BAE Systems are at the forefront of military robotics as well as the latest innovations such as cloaking devices for tanks and body armour formed from liquid to make the modern flesh and blood killing machine even more agile and deadly. Look to their armoured land vehicles which are autonomous of human supervision (like those patrolling the Israeli-Gaza and Israeli-Lebanon border zones) or the tiny above ground or under water machines modelled on insects for audio-visual reconnaissance to see a sign of our future they are preparing.

The company make explicit reference to the age of asymmetric warfare and the crossover from use of their products on the battle field to use within society at large : a common phenomenon in the sector. A case to illustrate this is the high power BAE Systems night vision gear finding its way into the civilian surveillance camera market to advance the project making open prisons out of the urban centres and anywhere it is needed to protect the system and its commodities.

Need we write more to demonstrate how technological development under the civilised power structure is leading us to a desolate automated landscape of near total dominance and potential annihilation? The hour is late and the brave new world with amplified demand for submission will be the price for our indifference.

To go after them on what they thought was safe ground is what we decided to return in kind for the business BAE Systems have chosen. Through the attack we are with those incarcerated for their own path towards anarchy :

Gianluca Iacovacci and Adriano Antonacci
Marco Camenisch
Nicola Gai and Alfredo Cospito

Every year they spend inside, the destructive acts will multiply. Honour also to fighters of days gone by who walked armed against dominance in their time.

“Arming Negation” – A Communique from the Imprisoned Members of C.C.F. (Greece)

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014


Inter Arma received and translated:


Mediocrity kills. For us there is no middle road. Whoever says is an anarchist, faces a decisive dilemma either to act or to clam up and abandon anarchy. Because anarchy at the tail-end of legality and minced words is not possible.

(unreleased text by C.C.F.)

I. Symbolisms inside coincidences

After almost two years the third trial of the state against the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire is coming to its end. The theatrical show of the court is peaking through the “sacred” act of the apologies.

The symbolism of the words in not coincidental. Indeed for the legal civilization the apology is considered to be a “sacred” right of the accused. It reminds the confession of the worshiper to the priest. It is the supreme moment of exaltation of the judicial authority, before the verdict. The accused is required to kowtow his judges (coincidentally, in greece there is a christian image of the “Son of God” above the judges’ heads. The coincidences are left to each one’s insigh) and beg for the forgiveness of penal sins, for clemency or even for vindication. In the language of symbolisms we have always preferred the heretic iconoclasts instead of the Inquisition’s justice. In the world of reality we are anarcho-nihilists and we are not going to apologize to any judge. (more…)

Intervista CCF & Alfredo Cospito / Nucleo Olga FAI-FRI (Greece, Italy)

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014


via radioazione:

L’aggiornamento continuo di un sito fa si che le pagine scorrono veloci, e questo fa che i testi, come questo che reputo interessante, finiscono negli archivi informatici. Questa intervista era apparsa già quasi due mesi fa su questo sito ed oggi, nonostante si possa andarla a ritrovare e rileggere, preferisco ripubblicarla visto che erano avvenute lamentele, per un “mancato dibattito”, da parte di chi aveva visioni diverse su alcune tematiche affrontate ora anche da Alfredo. Un altro motivo è perché la stessa intervista non è stata pubblicata da nessun’altra parte se non su questo sito e quello di CroceNeraAnarchica.

Sarà…ma a me mi torna in mente una canzone…la citazione con cui apre il testo di rivendicazione di Nicola…

Di seguito la lunga e approfondita intervista fatta dai compagni greci delle CCF al compagno Alfredo Cospito:


Dalle carceri greche all’ AS2 di Ferrara: Quattro parole in “ libertà”.

Intervista delle Ccf a me medesimo.

Prima di rispondere alle vostre domande voglio sottolineare che quel che dirò è la mia verità. Uno tra i tanti punti di vista, sensibilità e sfumature individuali all’interno di quel crogiolo di pensiero ed azione che va sotto il nome di Fai-Fri.

Federazione informale che, rifiutando qualsiasi tentazione egemonica, rappresenta uno strumento, un metodo di una delle componenti dell’anarchismo d’azione. Anarchismo d’azione che solo quando si fa informale, non costringendosi in strutture organizzative (specifiche, formali, di sintesi) quando non è all’ assillante ricerca di consenso (quindi rifiuta la politica) si può riconoscere in un più largo caotico universo che va sotto il nome di ’’internazionale nera’’.

Per capirci meglio la Fai-Fri è una metodologia d’azione che solo una parte delle sorelle e fratelli dell’internazionale nera praticano, non un’organizzazione né tanto meno una semplice firma collettiva, ma uno strumento che tende all’efficienza, che ha come obiettivo quello di rafforzare i nuclei e i singoli compagni/e d’azione attraverso un patto di mutuo appoggio su tre punti: solidarietà rivoluzionaria, campagne rivoluzionarie, comunicazione tra gruppi /singoli: (more…)

Update on CCF’s trial – Sessions 99th-109th (Greece)

Monday, August 11th, 2014

Inter Arma received and translated:

109th session

In this session the testimonies of the defence witnesses called by some defendants who are not members of CCF, were scheduled to begin. Before the beginning of this procedure, the comrades of CCF read a statement concerning their refusal to call defence witnesses.

Here are some fragments of that statement:

” … this trial is reaching its end. At this point, your legal culture gives us the right to call defence witnesses. But the logic of calling some other individual to defend you, seems crippled and victim-like to us.

We are aware of the fact that, a parade of defence witnesses takes place in many trials against anarchists and that one can even find representatives of the Left and university professors among those people.

Quite often, defence witnesses in full cooperation with the defendants build a humanitarian profile for the ones prosecuted, presenting them to be “good people”, “intelligent students” and “pure ideologues” in order to win the judges’ sympathy. This whole scenery seems to us more like a psychotherapy session than an aggressive stance against the judges. (…) So, we are neither “good people” nor “intelligent students” and “pure ideologues” who are prosecuted for their ideals. We are anarcho-nihilists prosecuted because they put their ideas into practice without ever regretting anything.

This is why we refuse to be victims that need defence. For us the best “defence” is the continuing actions of the illegal cell of CCF and the network of FAI/IRF.

So, we don’t look for defence witnesses but for accomplices to commit the “crime” of anarchy (…)”.

After the reading of the statement, the lawyers of the rest of the defendants referred to some trial documents. A document was filed which proved that A.Mitrousias takes classes of the Open University while in prison, while there was a reference to the fact that G.Karagiannidis attended a graduation ceremony in order to receive his degree, while the comrades of CCF were in clandestinity.

The testimony of the first defence witness was interrupted because of the tension created in the courtroom.

108th session

The reading of additional documents continued.

107th session

The reading of additional documents continued.

106th session

The reading of additional documents continued.

105th session

The reading of the reasoning of the condemnatory decision of the previous trial continued.

104th session

The reading of the reasoning of the condemnatory decision of the previous trial continued.

103d session

The reading of the reasoning of the condemnatory decision of the previous trial continued. Among other things, it was stated that CCF’s attacks had a negative impact on the country’s image abroad and that this resulted in scaring foreign financial investors.

102nd session

The basic reasoning of the condemnatory decision of the previous trials against CCF for the Chalandri case was read (we remind you that the comrades have already been sentenced to more than 200 years of imprisonment…). Indicative of the trial’s atmosphere is the fact that it was stated that the warning telephone call before the explosion in the Ministry of Macedonia and Thrace was made to “terrorize” civilians.

101st session

The session was postponed due to the absence of one of the judges.

100th session

The reading of some additional documents of the Counter-terrorism agency was completed and the date for the next session, where the testimonies of the defence witnesses would begin, was scheduled. The comrades of CCF stated that they will not call defence witnesses since they stand against the logic of being defended by other individuals in an enemy territory like a courtroom. “We are not here to have defence witnesses calling us “good people” with “ideals”. We are here because we are prisoners of the state and we declare that we are everlasting enemies of the system you represent…”

99th session

In this session the question of whether the defendants who haven’t claimed responsibility for participating in CCF, are indeed members of the group or not, was raised once again.

The comrades of CCF repeated in every possible way that it goes without saying that whoever doesn’t claim responsibility for being a member of CCF cannot obviously be their comrade or a member of the group.

That was the first time when the judge and the prosecutor referred to “secondary members”, who are not part of the group’s nucleus and don’t make decisions, wanting to create suspicions for the rest of the defendants. The comrades of CCF clearly stated that there are neither secondary or main members nor a decision making nucleus. CCF is a not group that was created on the basis of rules and hierarchy but a living experiment of human relations, far away from leaders and followers. Their exact statement was the following: “CCF is a conspiracy of friendship and comradeship among anarchists who feel alive only in their actions.” While they, once again, affirmed the deep political and ethical differences, which separate them from the rest of the defendants.

Sessions with defence witnesses

The testimonies of the defence witnesses called by A. Mitrousias, K. Sakkas, G. Karagiannidis and S. Antoniou, who have nothing to do with CCF, took place in the following sessions.

Among the defence witnesses were personal friends of the defendants, their parents, former employers, university professors, DNA scientists as well as communists and anarchists.

All of them testified that those defendants have nothing to do with CCF and its actions. The political defence witnesses testified about things like the massive movement, the police frame-ups against anarchists, the oppression of Capital, the social struggles, while the judges were often asking about the difference between an anarchist and an anti-authoritarian (?). The personal defence witnesses testified about the character of the defendants and their relationship with them, in their working area (i.e. there was a testimony by the former employer of G. Karagiannidis) and in other social relations (from the testimonies it became known that A. Mitrousias had decided to surrender himself on the 8th of December in order to go on trial during the first trial against CCF).

In between those sessions the nationwide hunger strike of the prisoners in Greece against the bill for the creation of maximum security prisons took place. The comrades of CCF and the rest of the defendants interrupted the trial until the end of the hunger strike.

Athens: Nihilists take responsibility for the grenade attack against SKAI Media Group (Greece)

Monday, July 28th, 2014

Inter Arma received and translated:



“Media are to democracy what tanks are to dictatorships”

We “Nihilists’ Cells” take responsibility for the grenade attack against the headquarters of SKAI pimp-channel, in the early hours of Saturday 12/07.

In the age of media empire a lot are being written just to say a few and hide the most. Journalists appear as the exclusive owners of the truth. Whatever doesn’t “play” on TV cameras, it simply doesn’t exist. It’s being deleted… silenced… hidden…

Just like the biggest hunger strike (4,500 prisoners) ever made in Greek prisons against the law for maximum security prisons. The tidings of the hunger strike was squeezed among advertisements for mobile cellphones, detergents, electrical appliances and the world cup’s carnivalesque rhythms, in order to be frittered, slaughtered and, finally, completely silenced.

The prisoners’ fight against being buried and forgotten living-dead inside hundreds of tons of concrete and banisters looks like it doesn’t match the TV narrative of life. Where the lie builds your ideological castles, there is room only for fear and for the stupefaction of the society of the spectacle. Images of people searching the garbage for some food, interchange with flashy fashion shows and charity events, while the news about the thousands of suicides of neo-desperate ex-bourgeois are being forgotten in the aftermath of lifestyle gossips in an endless TV bargain of social aphasia… And life goes on outside the TV screen in a black-and-white background. Mass way of thinking and emotions with users’ guides… this is the social factory of the media.

SKAI and its group of lackey and pimp journalists are carrying on the propaganda of conservatism and fear. Spinster witches (I. Mandrou), submissive counselors (A. Portosalte), agents (Papachelas), disgusting fawners (G. Aftias), newly minted pretentious cocky dastards (T. Chatzis), hysterical bankers (M. Papadimitriou), under the instructions of a smuggler (Alafouzos), praise and sanctify the authority’s orders, sending for the Inquisition to whoever dares question it.

We could say thousands of words about the salaried TV-attorneys. But no sheep was ever saved by bellowing. In the battle against the existent the one who speaks “well” wins not, but the one who turns his words into action does. That’s why we don’t like garnished speeches, complicated analyses, social rhetorics and pompous political terms, in order to “justify” our actions or to become likeable for the masses.

We are with the minority of those who are indifferent to the objective conditions and the intermediate levels of “social revolution” and we bring the immediate experience of the anarchist insurrection HERE and NOW…

From the razor’s edge where we look for the authentic experience of attack, we send our greeting and our complicity to the COMRADES of the C.C.F.-Imprisoned Members’ Cell and to Andreas and Spyros who are being held in Korydallos wing A, to comrade Olga of C.C.F. and to all those friends in prisons who do not kneel in front of the tyranny of the authority and the decay of time. Solidarity and Strength to the illegal sector of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, to Comrades in Germany, Italy, Indonesia and England who reinforce “Project Phoenix”, to the international network of FAI/IRF and to the fugitive urban guerrilla Chr. Ksiros.


“Nihilists’ Cells”

PS (1). The presence of some random by-passers and the danger of injuring them forced us no to express the range of attack we had planned and limit ourselves to the throwing of that specific grenade… But next time we will not content ourselves with a simple intimidating symbolism…

PS (2). Every arrest of an urban guerrilla, like the arrest of N. Maziotis, is one more reason for the sharpening of the attacks. Strength and complicity with the comrades who take the political responsibility of choosing the armed struggle.

Two further arrests for FAI/ELF actions in Avon & Somerset (UK)

Sunday, July 27th, 2014

The corporate press of the British regime are spewing police press releases claiming that they have arrested two young men for actions carried out by cells of the Informal Anarchist Federation / Earth Liberation Front. None of the young men have been reportedly charged yet and details are kept to what the police are willing to reveal. The police are not willing to publicise further details for fear of giving the ‘oxygen of publicity’ to the new anarchist urban guerrilla and the insurrectional fire of resistance. When info is scarce, these moments are for sharpening our determination towards the clash with the security forces, organising and developing our intentions, and preparing counter-plans to their repression. It’s not for spreading statements of victimisation and cowardice like the civil anarchists and their ‘social activist’ allies.

According to the news reports, one 30-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of arson of a communications mast in Bathampton last year. He was arrested on 25 July and was interrogated by detectives. This incendiary attack by ‘FAI/ELF – New Horizons of Burning Rage’ cut the television, radio and mobile phone coverage to 80,000 homes and happened on January 3, 2013. The relatively simple and repeatable action, like many of the attacks carried out by FAI/ELF, used methods anybody could research and execute. The attacks against the communications masts are done by burning the transmission conduit wires from the mast to the generator. The attack caused several hundred thousand pounds worth of damage, severed the brainwashing propaganda of the corporate regime for a short time, cut police telecommunications and was a high-profile attack making widely public the new urban anarchist guerrilla, the anti-system struggle and the fight of anarchist prisoner solidarity. Detective Chief Inspector Andy Bevan, from Avon and Somerset Police’s Major Crime Investigation Team was responsible for issuing a press statement justifying the kidnapping of the man. At the time of the press statement, dated 25 July, the man had not been released and there was no more information. To date, the police have not issued a follow-up report, leading to an assumption that he has been released on bail as the police ‘continue their enquiries’ (usually a euphemism for lack of evidence to charge the suspect). Otherwise, the police would be making a great deal about the case and giving more attention to a breakthrough in their investigation which has so far had no success. Needless to say, we will continue to report on the situation. [Update: police have confirmed through the mass-media that this individual has been released without charge]

Also on 25 July, a young man aged 20 was arrested on suspicion of arson following car fires in Glebe Road, St. George last month, that FAI/ELF took responsibility for. After being questioned about the fires he was released on bail as police ‘continued their enquiries’.

These arrests come after another man, aged 33, was arrested on suspicion of ‘going equipped to commit a crime’ after his vehicle was stopped by officers in Bristol last month. He was questioned in connection with fires at communication masts in the area, that the FAI/ELF also took responsibility for, as part of the Phoenix Project. He was released without charges on police bail. There have been no more reports of the man being charged, or if he has been bailed further, and it should be clear by now that the police do not give news reports of their errors. Corporate regime newspapers ‘Daily Mail’, ‘Bristol Post’ and ‘Bath Chronicle’ are responsible for the collaboration with the security forces.

From looking at previous repressive waves, anarchists, freethinkers and anti-authoritarian rebels across the local area, nationally and internationally, should remain aware to the ongoing investigations into the attacks which have been taking place. They too can become suspects based on their political-social orientations and dissident activities. In the case of widespread repression and/or specific raids and arrests, let’s organise to attack British interests abroad in solidarity with our comrades on prison island. Within the UK, we call all individuals and groups to start or intensify their actions, spread subversion and fight against the corruption, exploitation and brutality. Let’s not leave the incendiary minority alone in their struggle, let’s use all the means at our disposal and ability. Let’s join all the battles together in an asymmetric war against the ‘social peace’. For the death of civility and the society which breeds it. The passion for freedom is stronger than the prison!

Solidarity is our weapon!

Comrades Gianluca and Adriano sentenced (Italy)

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

Rome – 18th of July 2014

The anarchist comrades Gianluca Iacovacci and Adriano Antonacci were
sentenced today by the judge Simonetta D’Alessandro to 6 years (Gianluca)
and 3 years and 8 months (Adriano) of jail for several sabotages and incendiary attacks against ENIL, ENEL [Energy companies], a fur shop, banks and the working site of a refuse-dump in the area surrounding Rome, between 2010 and 2013.

The judge confirmed the charge of 270bis (subversive association) with the aim of international terrorism. Gianluca claimed some time ago the responsibility for some of the actions they were accused of, the ones signed by FAI.

During the trial he refused to defend himself and resigned the lawyer, both of them refused to participate in the trial by video-conference.

Incendiary solidarity with our two comrades!!!

Update concerning the second session of the trial about the case of “Phoenix” Project (Greece)

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

via interarma:

Today, Wednesday 2nd of July, there was the second session of the trial about the “Phoenix” Project. The 12 defendants (Andreas Tsavdaridis, Spyros Mandylas and the 10 imprisoned members of CCF) were not presented in court because they are recovering from the 8-day hunger strike in which they participated against the bill for the maximum security prisons. They also asked not to be represented by any lawyer. We remind that the trial began on June the 4th and it concerns three acts of the “Phoenix” Project (Acts 1, 2, 4). The trial was postponed to Wednesday 16th of July.

Not a milimeter back,
9 milimeters to the cops’ heads.
