Santiago: Incendiary sabotage against PROQUIMSA industries ($hile)

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

“Life is a journey by parachute, and not what you want to believe. We are falling, falling from our zenith to our nadir, and we leave the air stained with blood to poison those who will come to breathe it tomorrow. Within yourself, outside yourself, you will fall from your highest to lowest point because that is your destiny, your miserable destiny. And the higher you fall from, the higher you will bounce, and the longer you will be remembered by the stone. We have jumped from our mother’s bellies or the edge of a star, and we are falling. Oh, my parachute, the sole perfumed rose of the atmosphere, the rose of death, tumbling between the stars of death. Have you heard? That is the sinister noise of closed breasts. Open the door of your soul and come out to breathe outside. You can open the door that the hurricane slammed, with only a whisper.” [Vicente Huidobro, Altazor]

On Tuesday, June 9, according to one of the many calendars of domination. Our contradictory wrists carry watches that indicate that it’s ten till two in the morning. The cold is chilling, but we’re well equipped. Long minutes walking to enter the outskirts of the industrial park Lo Boza, in the municipality of Pudahuel – a territory substantially faded by the uncontrolled advance of the techno-industrial system and the active complicity of the submissive population, which has been enchanted by this regime of hate and death. “Where the waters meet” was once home to fertile, colorful land; for the time being, it is a deposit of human waste, orderly zombies arriving early to work in the morning. The air is torn by hundred airplanes that land with impunity on the high-density concrete of the Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport, the soil is dirtied by industries that spring up faster than mushrooms in the Valdivian forest, the water is “mis-treated” by some of the largest water treatment plants in South America.

Athens: ‘Combative Anarchy / FAI-IRF’ takes responsibility for arson attack against SYRIZA offices in anarchist prisoner solidarity action (Greece)

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Combative Anarchy / FAI – IRF takes responsibility for the incendiary attack against SYRIZA offices in Kypseli. We torched the offices of these politicians opportunists as a first response to the rejection of the educational leave of our comrade Nikos Romanos and the vindictive extension of the hostage situation of the wife of the comrade of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, Gerasimos Tsakalos. The world of authority is here. In the hands of immigrants marked with numbers, in the summits of economists, the incessant propaganda of journalists, the ministries of the “left governance”, in courts, police stations, the villas of the rich. Anarchist insurrection does not aim to reform capitalism, nor stops the action depending on the political administrator of the machines of death and exploitation. The dawn of our time will come upon the ruins of capitalist society. Until then, the only thing left to us is the continuous and uncompromising anarchist struggle.

STRENGTH TO THOSE WHO ARM THEIR NEGATIONS! STRENGTH TO ALL ANARCHIST PRISONERS!

PS) During the hunger strike of the imprisoned comrades in Chile, we torched a diplomatic vehicle in Ano Pefki, wanting to heat their hearts with the fire of anarchist solidarity. Get well comrades.

Santiago: Incendiary attack against a car company by ‘Incendiary Cell “22nd of May”FAI-IRF’

Sunday, June 21st, 2015

Insurrection News received & translated:

During the night of Monday June 15 we attacked a car company located in the vicinity of the intersection of Vicuña Mackenna and Amerigo Vespucci avenues in La Florida by placing an incendiary device inside one of the cars that was for sale. The resulting fire caused partial damages to the car and the company.

We carried out our action in the middle of the collective patriotic alienation that was generated by the party for the Chilean national soccer team, choosing our target in advance and scheduling it in a way that made it clear that we were not interested in a random attack that could harm people who had nothing to do with our action. We acted within a few meters from a police checkpoint, demonstrating that the police do not have everything under control and that an attack is always possible.

It wasn’t just a new car that we attacked, an attack on something material was not the only goal of our action; the attack was also against the background that houses each of these machines that shares the same meaning and sense of the domination of society. It is the collections of merchandise displayed in glass cases and shelves, the accumulation of capital, unscrupulous human exploitation through wage labor, the devastation of land to plunder resources, the lust for ostentation and the nonsense of production – everything was attacked that night.

Three of the five anarchist prisoners of Operación Piñata released + 13 June day of solidarity demo in Barcelona (Catalunya, Spain)

Saturday, June 6th, 2015

On June 1 we got the great news that three of the five comrades being held in preventive detention, accused of being part of a terrorist group under Operation Piñata (including one who was already arrested and imprisoned in Operation Pandora) are being released without bail. They still have all their charges and have to sign in frequently at court, and two of them are prohibited from leaving the country.

Operation Pandora was launched in December in Catalunya, and Operation Piñata on March 30 all across the Spanish state but focused in Madrid. The operations resulted in the arrests of 26 anarchist comrades (plus the arrests of over a dozen more for resisting the raid on a social center) on anti-terrorism charges, the raids of dozens of houses and social centers, the theft of cash, and the seizure of computers, harddrives, phones, etc.

‘Communization: The senile decay of anarchy (or re-inventing anarchy)’ – Fragment of the unpublished pamphlet “FAI Reloaded” by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire : Imprisoned Members Cell (Greece)

Monday, June 1st, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

Communization: The senile decay of anarchy (or re-inventing anarchy) – fragment of the unpublished pamphlet “FAI Reloaded” by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.

i) Frozen Marxism

Today’s era smells like engine oil, cheap labor sweat and naphthalene of the morality of voluntary obedience… We do not want to be defined by the culture of techno-industrial fascism, the white uniforms of scientists, the neckties of technocrats, the eager silences of ordinary people, the stupid smiles of consumers… We do not match with the aesthetics of the glass world of flat television screens, the digital imitation of the life of social media, the display windows of lifestyle, the lens of security cameras. We do not fit in the society of captivity, the police checks of our identification papers, the supervision of security guards, the laws of the judges, the locked doors of prisons. We do not settle for the average normality dictated by morality, we don’t amuse our boredom with psychotropic drugs, we aren’t covered by the coldness of empty relations, we don’t read… Marx.

Today we live to the rhythm of a generalized crisis. Our daily life is throttled from the tyranny of numbers. Our life resembles an accounting book, whose calculations always find it deficient and indebted. They overwhelm us with financial terms and definitions, one half of which are unknown and the other half of no interest to us. The wandering charlatans of all ideologies, roam from one financial conference to the other and bombard us with ramblings and often incomprehensible interviews-speeches, each of them presenting his own social antidote to the economic crisis. On the shelves of the ideological supermarket every faithful consumer will find the antidote that suits him, in all shades. There are “revolutionary” antidotes, even “anarchist” ones. In Greece, the neo-communists, ex-anarchists, mix in the cauldron of ideologies anarchist labels, with plenty of frozen Marxism, anti-imperialism and a pinch of disguised national liberation. The new tension of “serious” anarchy dresses itself in a formal way and launches the trend of anti-capitalist struggle on a red background. The rhetoric of the neo-communists – “anarchists” talks about everything. In an effort to build a social marketing of propaganda for the masses, it promotes generalizations sanctifying the “oppressed people” and “workers” who, obviously, for them are “not accountable” for their responsibilities and silences, uses covertly socially palatable national references, such as “the Greek people”, “our country” and promises “social salvation” with the coming of post-revolutionary society, preaching in the assemblies of the need for centralized-structures… It seems that some neo-communists already rehearse their future offices. Perhaps, this what they train themselves for now, selling hegemony, experience coming from age and the wisdom of a leader within the anarchist milieu.

A contribution to the international call against prisons from Chile, by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (Greece)

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

This is where wolves are silent because people are screaming…

10-20 of April: an international campaign of comrades in Chile, against prison. Ten days against the obeisances of those who learned to live like servants. A message of complicity. Words that escaped from the prisons of Chile, traveled thousands of kilometers away, crossed borders, police forces, censorship and reached our cells. Thoughts and meanings that became our sleepless friends to our difficult moments of the hunger strike we carried out. Where life and death stand a breath, heartbeat less away from each other, there where comradeship, solidarity and complicity give advantage to life. Words and thoughts of comrades from Chile gave us courage, tenacity and a hoard of smiles.

Against a society that accepts being marked with the mark of authority, with ID numbers, tax records, cameras, products’ barcodes, Facebook, virtual reality, monitors, here we also stand, we who refuse to be tamed. We refuse to become the obedient pets in the shop window of survival that repeats itself and looks like a slow death.

In different places and moments, different negation and insurrection, which although speak different languages, express common meanings, meet. It’s the meeting of all of us who discovered our true face when we put on a hood to attack the ugliness of this world. It’s the call of all of us who chose the sound of a bank’s window crumbling, the break and ignition of a molotov cocktail as it traverses the night as a glowing star, an explosion that blows up authority and silence of the social graveyard, a pistol arming while rising to shoot death carrying normality, as our music.

PROYECTO FÉNIX – Σχέδιο Φοίνικας (traducido al español) from La Salute e in Voi on Vimeo.

PROYECTO FÉNIX
“El Regreso de la Conspiración de Células del Fuego desde las Cenizas”

El “Proyecto Fénix” nace como un gesto solidario dedicado a Alfredo Cospito y Nicola Gai, del “Núcleo Olga FAI/FRI” que asumió la responsabilidad del ataque armado contra Roberto Adinolfi, empresario nuclear de “Ansaldo Nucleare”, y además como una iniciativa internacional de ataque, comenzando en Grecia con la colocación de un artefacto explosivo contra la Directora de la Prisión de Korydallos.

La expansión de las acciones enmarcadas dentro del proyecto se desarrolla a lo largo y ancho de distintos territorios donde la práctica insurreccional pasa de la teoría a la acción, en absoluta consecuencia con las palabras de quienes se declaran en Guerra contra toda Autoridad y el Poder. A su vez, es un incandescente foco revolucionario que insta al diálogo y al debate entre distintos individuxs organizadxs de manera informal y difusa que dan forma al ataque permanente y minoritario.

La práctica del internacionalismo anárquico es uno de los cimientos del proyecto, es el momento donde el ataque autónomo encuentra un campo en común que une, nutre y potencia distintas realidades y tensiones, apuntando y calibrando en su alma la persiste confrontación contra lo existente. (more…)

CCF Escape Case: Update on repression in Greece and UK

Wednesday, April 15th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

With new reports by snitching cop journalists, an effort is being made to target comrades who come occasionally in contact with the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. In this case, they try to locate comrades from the UK who, as reported by the cops, publish an insurrectionary anarchist magazine there. They want to investigate what comrades from abroad traveled to Greece on specific dates. Also, they take into account the importance of the presence of FAI cells in the country and report that a group of Greek cops will travel there to inform their colleagues. This is a witch hunt which now targets comrades abroad as well. The case of the escape of the members of CCF becomes the perfect alibi, after several months of media propaganda, for cleaning up and hunting comrades which the cops already have in target.

Phoenix Project 2015: Attack against animal exploitation company by ‘Arsonist Anarchist Attack – Fire and Consciousness Cell – FAI/IRF’(Chile)

Phoenix Project 2015: Attack against animal exploitation company.
For human, animal and earth liberation (Chile)

Day by day, minute by minute, power is maintained and reproduced in the social relations of all those who accept this order based on the exercise of authority, domination and exploitation, and in all institutions, companies and machines that allow their normal development, never forgetting the voluntary action of power dignitaries and his accomplices: businessmen, politicians, police and citizen that defend power and submission, who strive for the status quo to run it and to be maintained.

When we decide to fight authority in all its forms and expressions, the struggle for total liberation makes sense, because it includes the various scenarios in which the power runs its domain. Our fight does not segment, it integrates, and so, to fight for total freedom implies also fight against State, capital, speciesism, hierarchies, specialization and varied expressions of authoritarianism.

And despite the efforts of the Chilean State to eliminate ideas and practices of revolt, direct attack by anarchic action groups still continues. (more…)

Athens: ‘FAI – Solidarity and Revenge Cell’ take responsibility for an incendiary attack against local offices of SY.RIZ.A. (Greece)

Thursday, April 9th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

(08/04/2015)

Today, anarchist hunger strikers are on the 38th day of hunger strike. The ongoing struggle targets all anti-insurrectional laws, which constitute the legal armor and the punitive arsenal of the democratic regime. A fight which concerns not only the imprisoned comrades but also anarchists outside prison who fight daily by all means against the enemy, as they are next on the application list of the repressive agenda.

The new government coalition with SY.RIZ.A. in its center, walks the traditional repressive path of social democracy, which has made the system’s assimilation and repression a science. Next to the targeted police and legal repression it puts a wide troupe of academics, artists, leftist journalists and other clowns who systematically slanders, distorts and degrades the struggle and its subjects. At the same time, this new caste of disgusting former PASOK and current SY.RIZ.A. voters that rushed like sheep to vote their new savior blurred from his leftist mirrors, participates like a fifth column in this slandering campaign.

Unlike the more blunt right-wingt system managers, the left government having grown in the core of petty politics (the left) is familiar with this game. So, while the ridiculous Panousis (who probably still bears a grudge against anarchists because of the “care” he had received from some comrades some years ago on this favorite academic step) makes grand, military press announcements, a part of the party apparatus (youth, civil rights movements, etc. ) has assumed the role of internal opposition and the maintenance of government links to the infamous movement which honored it with its votes.

This struggle, as the one during the strike of comrade Nikos Romanos, was an excellent opportunity to test the resilience and nature of anarchists in Greece, on several levels. Apart from the usual imaginary concept of “counter-information”, according to which those who two months ago elected the government of SY.RIZ.A. and the right-wing mob that was coiled by the New Republic, AN.EL. and Golden Dawn parties, would suddenly support anarchists and especially on an issue that does not concern them at all (there is not even half a social demand in this strike, only collateral benefits for various categories of criminal prisoners), the occupations that either ended up useless and problematic or tried to turn the struggle towards irrelevant directions (it’s the irony of life that during the period that this “class struggle-turn” started, in Chalkidiki. the metalworkers were beating the people opposed to the mines, on behalf of Bobolas(1)) and activism intended only to draw the attention of the media, there was also a major wave of violent actions and aggressive interventions across the country.

The only language the enemy understands, is the all-out and multi-form attack, with words and actions, against him. It is the language of the deconstruction of his ideological arsenal and the attack against his infrastructure. It is the texts, flyers, banners and posters, overflowing with hatred. It is the damaged vehicles and buildings, burnt cops, terrified judges and prosecutors and tattered streets in the center of the decaying metropolis.

So, at dawn of Wednesday 08/04, we placed an incendiary device at the entrance of the local youth offices of SY.RIZ.A. in Kessariani, a few blocks away from the local police station.

Let SY.RIZ.A., its politicians, its movement leeches and its sleeping voters know that the macho attitude of the winner deflates quickly, especially when the victory was achieved in a court that we neither played nor will ever play. For us, there is no hallowed leftist veil and historical self-worth which protects you. And if not anything else, we will always remember that you are the government because of which one of our comrades nearly died. You should wish for him to leave the hospital strong and standing.

We salute the comrades of FAI in Greece and abroad who participated actively in the struggle and also the rest of the anonymous or eponymous conspirators who went on the offensive in whatever way they chose to attack. Hopefully, this momentum will continue both in this struggle and in the many to come.

We wish a speedy recovery to the brothers of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and Angeliki Spyropoulou and strength to the anarchist prisoners who are still on hunger strike. You are not alone.

The war continues

Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI) – Solidarity and Revenge Cell

PS1: As we were informed by the mainstream media, the promised transfer of the police units that served as security details for high-profile targets progresses rapidly, and little by little, they are all gathered around the home of the Prime Minister. We, for our part, wish him the best. More empty streets for us.

PS2: Our warm congratulations to the anarchists who voted for SY.RIZ.A., we hope for them to have the dignity to refrain from the solidarity movement for the hunger strikers.

Translator note: Bobolas is one of the most powerful capitalists in Greece and a beneficiary from the exploitation of the earth’s plunder through mining in that area.

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

Thursday, April 9th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

ACTION PLAN FOR AN INTERNATIONAL ANARCHIST COUNTER-ATTACK

“LET’S DESTROY REPRESSION”

ACT 2

Combative Anarchy claims responsibility for the attack against the central offices of Microsoft in Greece. The comrades who took part in the action, placed the incendiary device composed of gas canisters and gunpowder and safely left, humiliating the security measures of the building once again. Microsoft is a multinational colossus of the techno-industrial complex, one of the most powerful companies of its industry and inextricably linked to the political and economic system. The attack at the cutting edge of the capitalist domination in techno-science and its murderous tentacles means the attack against the mechanization of life itself. The revolutionary war is a basis around which the constant conflict with the existent is being built, an attempt for the total liberation of our lives from the chains of the state, the capital and their society, which expand to the space-time continuum as the oppressed ones rebel against their oppressors.

On March 2nd, anarchists and political prisoners started a hunger strike, targeting to fight against the repressive framework of the state, the counter-terrorism unit and the judges. At the same time, the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and anarchist Aggeliki Spyropoulou announced the beginning of the hunger strike until death, demanding the immediate release of their relatives, who were revengefully detained by the schemes of the police and judicial mafia. Today, with many comrades hospitalized in critical condition, with CCF comrade Mihalis Nikolopoulos being threatened by permanent physical damage, despite the victorious outcome of his organization’s fight, with the “left” managers of power having thrown the mask of humanism in the garbage, the anarchist fight should speed up the counter-attack and lead the state in retreat. The fight of our imprisoned comrades and the new facts on the social and political field, after the election of SY.RI.Z.A., should be evaluated in the direction of revolutionary development. The multiformity of experiences and the collective effort is the focus of this evaluation, which lays the foundation for the material formation of our anti-state conspiracy against power.

Now, it’s in our hands to project the strategic necessity of the anarchist urban guerrilla warfare, by sabotaging the operations of the social machine, blowing up the walls of apathy and releasing the rebellious intentions. Weaving on the thread between theory, action and target, continuing the solitary walking in the paths of freedom, with our minds firmly attached to all our comrades who are locked up in the cells of democracy. We have just started. We are planning sabotages, we are harassing the enemy, we are experimenting with methods and practices, we are organizing our generalized counter-attack against the world of power. This act of ours is a contribution to the comrades of Czech FAI/IRF suggestion, who burned a police car and suggested the creation of an international action project with the name “Let’s destroy repression”, modeled on the “Phoenix” Project.

Moreover, it is our contribution to the days of international solidarity with the imprisoned comrades in Chile. Comrades, this explosion was for you as well! Strength to the comrade Aggeliki Spyropoulou and the prison cell of the Conspiracy who, with their unyielding and victorious fight, will soon see their beloved ones free again. Quick recovery comrades, your perseverance is a source of inspiration for the subversive spirits of our times. Let our fire become a hearth of warmth for the anarchists of the Network of Imprisoned Fighters and the member of Revolutionary Struggle, Nikos Maziotis, who stopped the hunger strike before our text was released.

SOLIDARITY WITH ALL THE ANARCHIST PRISONERS!

GOOD LUCK AND STRENGTH TO EVERYONE WANTED BY THE LEGAL ORDER!

WE ARM, ORGANIZE OURSELVES AND ATTACK!

LONG LIVE THE COMBATIVE ANARCHY!

The hunger strike of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire was victorious (Greece)

Saturday, April 4th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

THE HUNGER STRIKE OF THE CONSPIRACY OF CELLS OF FIRE WAS VICTORIOUS

Today is a day that a crack in the walls of the imprisoned world around us has opened. After 32 days of hunger strike, the mother of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos and the girlfriend of the latter will soon pass the exit of prison, free again…

32 days of hunger strike, with eight comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire being hospitalized, balancing between life and death. Mihalis found himself in the ICU the last few days, Olga has reached 40 kilos, Panagiotis had an already compromised health from previous surgeries on his head, George P. has a problem with his heart, with his heart-beats reaching 30 and all of them had medical measurements indicating that they lost 15-20% of their initial body weight.

32 days, the hunger strike became a daily, slow torment of death, in order for us not to make truce with the absolute death of emotional blackmail. An insidious blackmail which authority wanted to impose on us by abducting and keeping our relatives as hostages in prison. 32 days of hunger strike, every fading beat of our heart, reminded us of the promise we made together when we met for the last time, “Let’s go, until freedom …”.

After 32 days of hunger strike, the shadow of repression grew pale, the walls of captivity lowered and prison admitted defeat.

This victory is not only the result of the hunger strike of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. It’s a victory of a whole world of solidarity, with arson attacks, occupations, sabotage, marches, gatherings, unexpected interventions, which broke the social peace, turned cities into fields of insurrectional moments and occupied buildings into living labs of subversive situations. In an everyday life where the desire for freedom has been suspended indefinitely, life flooded with little and large gestures of liberation, with fires, with slogans and sparkling eyes of persons who wore hoods.

We are flooded with many thoughts that want to fill with words the corresponding meanings. But now, there is neither a day for celebration, nor for accounts of victory. Today we stop the hunger strike, having beaten the scarecrows of authority who wanted our relatives in prison, BUT at the same time, the hunger strike of the remaining political prisoners, for the overall requests that have been set, continues. The days that follow are critical both for their health and for the total wager of anarchist struggle. Therefore, there is no time neither for relaxing, nor for victory celebrations. The die was cast a long time ago… We, as the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, remain on the ramparts and prepare our counter-attack, supporting the struggle conducted within and outside prison.

Authority and it’s scarecrows should know that every judicial coup, every jail, every moment of oppression, every lie of propaganda, every shade of bourgeois morality will return back to its instigators and owners, with multiple power and vehemence. With the power and vehemence of sabotage, fire, explosion, execution… In war, we answer with war. Time for us to attack first…

STRENGTH AND SOLIDARITY with anarchist comrade Nikos Maziotis. member of R.S., and the Network of Fighting Prisoners

VICTORY TO THE STRUGGLE OF THE HUNGER STRIKE

“ALL OR NOTHING” – Text by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire : Imprisoned Members Cell (Greece)

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

A few days ago, the councils responsible for the release of the mother of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos and the girlfriend of the latter came in session. The repeated postponements that took place, made several comrades of the Conspiracy reach the limits between life and death. Mihalis has been in danger of suffering a heart attack twice, as his pulses dropped down to 20-25/ beats per minute (!!!), Olga has reached 40 kg, Panagiotis already has a compromised health due to prior head surgeries, Giorgos P. has serious bradycardia and pressure problems (systolic pressure 5, diastolic 3) and all comrades have lost 15-20% of their initial body weight.

Finally, the first council (by majority) decided the release of the mother, with iron restrictions (10.000 euros bail, 3 times per month required presence at a police station, prohibition of leaving the country and prohibition of leaving the island of Salamina where she lived, which had as a result, essentially, her not being allowed to visit her imprisoned sons). The second council rejected the release application of Gerasimos Tsakalos’ girlfriend, keeping her hostage of the judicial vindictiveness.

That is the game of death that continues in an even more coercive manner. They want to divide us, by offering us, on the one hand, a handicapped freedom with the release of the mother and on the other hand, a compromise with the acceptance of Evi’s detention. Our answer is simple and clear.

No truce, not a step back.

We are not going to stop our hunger strike even in front of the abyss of death. Because the absolute death is to accept the reality imposed by authority, to step back in front of its commands and hide in indifference.

We continue until the end, consistent to our decision. Until an end is given to Evi’s detention.

PS1: The mother of comrades’ Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos refused to comply with the unfair continuation of Evi’s hostage situation and did not accept the restrictions, claiming that she will pass the gate to freedom, only with Evi, who has nothing to do with our organization. Dignity proves to be stronger than legal freedom.

PS2: The last two arrests (a couple of Albanians, according to news reports) regarding our planned escape, prove only the judicial-police Gordian Knot, which tightens like a loop around the true events. Several persons, who have no connection to our organization, have been led chained to investigative offices and others are hold in custody, only because the prosecuting authorities thought that there are references to them (not even their names are written there) in some decrypted messages.

What we see unfolding before us is a spectacular television production with targeted leaks from the case file to police reporters in order to inflate and disfigure reality. It’s a TV trailer for a prison escape which unfortunately didn’t happen. A reality show with strong doses of cannibalism, as besides the confiscated weapons and explosives for which we, as CCF, claimed full responsibility, there are people who are led to prison only because of a friendly relation, a letter, a misdemeanor, of nothing, through the disfiguring magnifying glass of the counter-terrorism law.

Amongst two worlds – International Call of Action for the Hunger Strike until Death of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (Greece)

Monday, March 30th, 2015

The moment the following words were written, we’re on the 25th day of hunger strike, for the liberation of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos’ mother, as well as the second one’s girlfriend.

The pre-trial detention of our two comrades’ relatives was an act of revenge by the judicial power against us, in retaliation for the escape we had prepared, with the bombing of the prison.

Now, reaching a tipping point between life and death, we want to share some thoughts with brothers and sisters, accomplices, comrades and anarchists all over the world. Of course, we know that upgrades of repression does not occur only in the Greek territory. It has already been applied in several countries, wishing to avenge anarchist deniers of the existent. Recently, in Chile, cops wanted to implicate the mother of the comrade Juan Aliste (“Security” Case) to a case of escape attempt of her son and his comrades. Moreover, in Spain, through Operation “Pandora”, when comrades from the friendship circle of anarchist prisoner Monica Caballero were targeted, while relatives of the anarchist Tamara Sol, in Chile, during their visit in prison, suffered the revengeful sadistic “care” of the penal officers who wanted to inflict humiliating body searches on them.

These attacks against relatives and friends of the anarchist prisoners seek to form an impassable moat of isolation around us. What the arrests, the verdicts and the prison bars failed to achieve, the emotional blackmail and the locking up of our beloved ones in the cells of democracy comes to accomplish. The blackmail is clear: we either make truce, or our relatives remain in prison. We’re not going to sign any paper of repentance nor capitulate with power. We remain unrepentant anarchists and every day power keeps our people as hostages, the wolf of negation and attack festers more and more inside us…

We know that several comrades around the world, with whom we are connected through the complicity of the anarchist action, feel numb towards the choice of hunger strike. As some close comrades from Croatia wrote to us, hunger strike, posing demands on power, in some sense, acknowledges it when asks for their satisfaction. Somebody else could say the hunger strike looks like a reliance on emotions, which nourishes the traders of hope and humanism to play political games on our backs. We understand some concerns related to the method of the hunger strike as, in the past, we have shared them with each other. Besides, in several cases when we experienced the revenge of power upon us, we chose to act in a different way and not by hunger strike. To put it simply: to war, we answer back with war. Because our choice is always the attack. But now we’re not talking about ourselves. The hostages in prison are our relatives now. This is why we chose a hunger strike, to publicly expose the ugliness and morbidity of power. We are on the 25th day of hunger strike already and we don’t recognise a millimeter of donated ground by power to us. Besides, we are aware that freedom is conquered through the violence of our own actions and won’t be given away by its laws. But our relatives do not share the war we have declared against power, so they won’t share our imprisonment. This is why we demand their immediate release from the cells of democracy.

We know that hunger strike is a slow death. But it is not our death. It is the death of a society that remains dormant and quiet towards the fascism of power. We, therefore, take the responsibility to expose it further… This is why the hunger strike we’re on, is not a passive attitude, but a scream of attack that becomes praxis through the acts of solidarity. It is a scream of attack that meets with thousands of voices in demos, with hundreds of hands that vandalize walls with slogans of solidarity, that hang banners, squat buildings, radio stations, government offices, and set a thousand fires to banks, state vehicles, political parties’ offices, courts, in Greece, Italy, Chile, Mexico, Argentina, Czech, Spain, UK, Turkey and the soils of Kurdistan in battle. So, the hunger strike, when connected with actions of attack, is not a plea for pity, but a call for action. This is why we call, from today, the hunger strike we’re on to become a wager for the people of anarchy, for the Black International of the anarchists of praxis, for the FAI/IRF cells, for the comrades, for everyone who chooses to attack against the order, the quiet and the laws of this world and its civilization. From today, through the attacks all over the world, let us put forward the dilemma: either with anarchy, or with power.

Because, on the background of the hunger strike for the release of the CCF comrades’ relatives, in fact, two different worlds are competing: on the one hand, the world of power, order, regularity, law, judges, prisons and, on the other hand, the world of revolt, that of the streets, fire, freedom, anarchy…

NOTHING LESS THAN EVERYTHING
HUNGER STRIKE FOR THE IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF THE CONSPIRACY OF CELLS OF FIRE MEMBERS’ RELATIVES
VICTORY FOR ALL THE HUNGER STRIKERS’ STRUGGLE
LONG LIVE ANARCHY

Project Phoenix 2015 “Let’s destroy Repression”: Arson of police vehicle by ‘FAI/IRF – Poetry of Fire Cell’ (Czech Republic)

Statement of FAI/IRF Poetry of fire cell

On Thursday 26th March 2015 we make an arson attack on a police car in Olomouc city. Attack against repressive machinery means fighting for freedom. Because where repression is needed, there is no place for liberty to bloom. There is no place without repression. Repression is an instrument of the state and capital. Repression and authority are the two sides of the same coin. Repression is global. Repression comes from the state as well as from the private sector. It cooperates all around the world. Everyone has met some kind of repression except those who do not want to live their own lives. Those who bow their heads and accept the orders voluntarily. Those who refuse the existing order knows the consequences. Everyone who even only tries to get his unpaid wage by means of direct action, people in a wild strike, people attacking the billboards or people looting during the riots know it. We are happy about every demonstration of insurrection which crosses bonds of legality, but only in case there is no demand of repression against the others. One day people attack the police to fight against taxes, the day after they demand stricter law against homeless people and “unadaptables”, the third day they become homeless themselves and want more money from taxes on social spending, the fourth day they find some job and try to avoid paying taxes again. Conditions in which we live influence our lives, but we must not use them as an excuse. What is the most important are the choices we make. In every situation we can succumb or we can resist.

We, the anarchists, do not let anyone decide about our lives. We feel only pity for people who try to find their path through the sad reality at the expense of the others. They bend their backs in the face of the Existent and make excuses about the objective conditions. We, the anarchist, we fight for a world without repression, without compulsion. Therefore we fight against every kind of repression continuously, regardless if it hits peaceful demonstrations of students on the other side of the world or the criminals in our town. We feel solidarity and sincere affinity with those who fight for destruction of repressive machinery, for anarchy. Rebels, insurrectionists, anarchists, revolutionaries, fighters…

Currently the Greek political prisoners continue their continuous fight against repression. Network of fighting prisoners (NFP), Maziotis, Gournas, members of CCF and many others. All these decided not to give up their fight and to resist repression even in captivity. Our attack is a gesture of solidarity with their fight. And therefore our attack is part of the struggle for anarchy, in the aim of helping the hunger strikers to win their fight.

Fighting against repression is also fighting against militarization. Our act also notes against passing of US army convoy, which will demonstrate its power in our neighborhood. We are not afraid of soldiers and cops, we are scared of society, which lets the elites to commit the worst atrocities, without resistance, obediently. Society of zombies. Our attack and our statement is contribution to Project Phoenix 2015 Lets destroy Repression. Project Phoenix is a game. We can play the game or we can finish it every time we want. We can do what we want to do. It is creative game played according to our rules. Everyone can join the game. Everyone can leave the game. When nobody plays the game it will cease to exist. This is part of life. It is only our choice. Some new game will appear sooner or later. Most important is to play according to our rules. The game which arouse passion and joy. It is also a destructive game at the same time. Destructive for the authorities.

Project Phoenix is solidarity praxis and it can be our own combative analysis. To get to know each other in combat. To plan how to aim our guns better against the Existent. This way we connect now and continuously. We connect destructively and creatively. Creative, not because we would like to create something in this society, but because everything which will be created in this society will be used as a tool of oppression unless it is destructive for the Existent.

We keep the new world in our hearts. The world where creativity is not turned into the tool of repression. In the recent world exists only one fight for freedom. A fight which is creative and full of joy for those who do not want to be chained. A fight which is destructive for the chains. There are many ways how to fight for a more beautiful world.

We have also received the messages from the anarchists abroad. First mentions of current anarchists of praxis, R.O. – Revolutionary Struggle, CCF, FAI/FRI, etc. appeared about 3 years ago [in Czech Republic]. Official anarchism, and state and capital try hard to suppress every combative tendency. When we read the information about official movement in Greece, it seems to us, that there is the same situation in our country. The proof is that nobody here informed about the hunger strike till now. Everyone has their own timing but it seems that some calls meet only deaf ears. There can be various reasons. One of them surely is the situation here. Therefore it is important for us to mention briefly the context of anarchism in Czech.

Text written by the comrades – hunger strikers Giorgos Polydoros and Gerasimos Tsakalos from Tzanio hospital (Greece)

Saturday, March 28th, 2015


Inter Arma received and translated:

UNTIL THE END…

We continue the hunger strike for the 27th day and are now hospitalized in Tzanio hospital. Our health may be at a “worrying point” as doctors say, but this does not affect us at all. Let us make ourselves clear once again. There is no return from our choice to die if necessary in order to stop the vindictive detention of the mother of Christos and Gerasimos Tsakalos and the partner of the latter. We are people that keep their word and we will remain consistent as anarchists in it. We will not step back. It may sound strange to some, the fact that we are on hunger strike without asking anything for ourselves, but we could not leave this vindictive witch hunt pass. Punishing our relatives for our choices, is a fascist practice. From this position, we can only attempt to put a stop to these practices – by hunger strike. We sincerely thank the comrades who help in all ways the struggle that we give in here to be heard by making solidarity action outside. We will not take even one step back. We do not stop. We are determined to rather die than to accept the idea of ​​our relatives in prison. Until the end and let everyone take his/hers responsibilities.

NEITHER LEFT NOT RIGHT AUTHORITY

DEATH TO THE ENEMIES OF FREEDOM… UNTIL VICTORY

Solidarity and strength to all hunger strikers

Gerasimos Tsakalos
Giorgos Polydoros

Members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – FAI/IRF

PS1. Our thoughts are with all the comrades on hunger strike in hospitals in Greece and especially with Mihalis and Damiano who suffer in the hospital of Evangelismos, known for its history of torturing urban guerrillas during their hospitalization there. Stay strong brothers until victory.

PS2. After the well-aimed intervention in Tzanio hospital by some comrades in the past days, in response to the behavior of the hospital towards anarchist hunger striker Fivos Harisis, the behavior of the medical staff towards us is the one that suits to hunger strikers.

Update on comrades – hunger strikers Giorgos Polydoros and Gerasimos Tsakalos

Gerasimos Tsakalos suffers from very strong headaches almost permanently on a daily basis as a result of the multi-day hunger strike. Giorgos Polydoros has α very low pulse (36-40 beats per minute) in combination with low pressure (8/4) which means an immediate risk for a heart attack. Both have already problems with their liver and bile.

The update was sent to us by comrades in solidarity with the hunger strikers
