Graffiti in solidarity with the Mi’kmaq warriors’ road blockade in New Brunswick against the fracking company SWN (Kanada)
Thursday, December 5th, 2013
Last night (December 2nd), we painted graffiti in solidarity with the Mi’kmaq warriors’ road blockade in New Brunswick against the fracking company SWN. It reads “Solidarity with the Mi’kmaq blockades,” “Fuck RCMP, Fuck OPD,” “Fight back,” and “Solidarity with the Mi’kmaq Warriors.”
With this humble gesture we send them the strength of knowing that they are not alone and that their brave actions are inspiring us to show our feelings of revolt in more concrete terms. This is just the beginning for us, we intend to escalate our level of conflictuality.
We also put up a large piece that read “Strength + courage, fuck the state,” not only for Germaine Jr Breau and the rest of the brave Mi’kmaq warriors, but for all those who show courage in times of adversity. We would like to take this opportunity to send greetings of solidarity to: The five recently arrested in Barcelona including Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar who remain in custody, the accused comrades of the Nea Filadelfia bank robbery case in Greece and to the inspiring Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai recently sentenced for the shooting of a CEO of a nuclear power company, your words are more important and inspiring than you can imagine.
In furtherance of an escalated anarchist conflict in the States, solidarity to the Mi’kmaq warriors and all those who fight back.

Santiago: Phoenix Project #8 – Action with incendiary/explosive device against a Board of Elections office and in solidarity with Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar (Chile)

Phoenix Project, Act 8: Action with incendiary/explosive device against a Board of Elections office and in solidarity with Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar. (Chile)
We are not spectators, but convinced enemies of all forms of domination.
Today, wielding the weapons of life and the ideas of rebellion, we wanted to give away a bit of anarchic momentum.
Today, we decided to attack the 98th Board of Elections office in La Reina commune [in Santiago] with an incendiary/explosive device, because we are convinced that the current state of affairs is sustained not only by those who administer domination, but also in the servile attitude of those who tacitly endorse it.

23-30 Agosto 2014 – Settimana dedicata ai prigionieri anarchici – Appello per una mobilitazione internazionale
Thursday, October 17th, 2013
Nell’estate del 2013 diversi gruppi della Croce Nera Anarchica hanno discusso sulla necessità di organizzare una Giornata Internazionale per i prigionieri anarchici. Dato che già esistono giornate dedicate ai diritti dei prigionieri, troviamo che sia importante enfatizzare anche le esperienze dei nostri compagni. Molti prigionieri anarchici non verranno mai riconosciuti come “prigionieri politici” dalle organizzazioni ufficiali per i diritti umani perché il senso di giustizia di queste ultime è strettamente influenzato dalle leggi capitaliste, designate a difendere lo Stato e impedire qualsiasi cambiamento reale. Nello stesso tempo, anche all’interno delle nostre stesse comunità individuali, sappiamo ben poco della repressione esistente in altri paesi, non conosciamo i nomi di molti dei nostri compagni prigionieri né i casi che li riguardano.

In summer 2013 members of several ABC groups discussed the necessity of introducing an International Day for Anarchist Prisoners. Given there are already established dates for Political Prisoners Rights Day or Prison Justice Day, we found it important to emphasise the stories of our comrades as well. Many imprisoned anarchists will never be acknowledged as ‘political prisoners’ by formal human-rights organisations, because their sense of social justice is strictly limited to the capitalist laws which are designed to defend the State and prevent any real social change. At the same time, even within our individual communities, we know so little about the repression that exists in other countries, to say nothing of the names and cases involving many of our incarcerated comrades.
This is why we have decided to introduce an annual Week for Anarchist Prisoners on August 23-30. We chose August 23 as a starting point, because on that very day in 1927 the Italian-American anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were executed in prison. They were convicted of murdering two men during an armed robbery at a shoe factory in South Braintree, Massachusetts, United States. Their arrest was a part of a bigger anti-radical campaign led by the American government. The State’s evidence against the two was almost totally non-existent and many people still today believe that they were punished for their strong anarchist beliefs. Given the nature and diversity of anarchist groups around the globe, we have proposed a week of common action rather than a single campaign on a specific day making easier for groups to be able to organise an event within a longer target period. Therefore, we call on everyone to spread the information about the Week for Anarchist Prisoners among other groups and communities and think about organising event(s) in your city or town. The events can vary from info-evenings, screenings and benefit concerts to solidarity and direct actions. Let your imagination run free.
Till all are free.

Phoenix Project #6: Parcel bomb arrives for Dimitris Mokkas, chief prosecutor in the CCF case (Greece)
Tuesday, October 8th, 2013
Translated by the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire
PHOENIX PROJECT #6
“EAT THE JUDGES”
Once again we meet in the Fire, with old and new comrades, determined to overthrow the police estimations which wanted us to be a closed chapter of an ended story. The Conspiracy of Cells of Fire is a never-ending story. It is the inner flame that burns within us, it is the Phoenix which is born from its ashes again and again… it is the Fire of Refusal and Nihilism which cry “I cannot stop, I cannot be burnt, no one can put me out.”
About a month ago, both our brothers Andreas and Spiros were arrested in Thessaloniki accused of sending a parcel bomb to the former commander of the Anti-terrorist force. There is no need for many words. Brothers remember that the sun will continue to rise for all of us whose homeland is the New Anarchy. The Phoenix is born from it own ashes and continues to mock the silence of the cowards, providing Promethea’s fire to the eternal insurgents.
Thus, the sending of the trapped parcel bomb to inquisitor Mokkas is a first minimum and reflective response. It is the answer that for us the only way to escape is to set fire to the reformist defence positions and to proceed to attack first again.
Moreover, Damianos, Panagiotis, Theofilos, Christos, Haris, Giorgos.P, Giorgos, Michalis, Olga, Gerasimos, namely the ten brothers and sister of the CCF, all of who are already being held in captivity with double, triple and quadruple sentences that even surpasses the 36 months, are now persecuted by the prosecuting circles with the charge of inciting.
Dimitris Mokkas is exclusively entrusted with cases related to “terrorism” on Greek territory. Which means exclusively our organization. The career of this slimy object does not have any differences from that of any typical juridical officer. Faint hearted little people which evolved into justice officials in order to satisfy their own complexes. This specific clown did a bit better in than other worms of the appellate court in kissing his superiors ass. His vanity to get a higher position was satisfied. Now he is in charge of calls, interrogations and detentions, always with a vengeful smile on his mouth. The peak of his ridiculousness and cowardice was the postponement of the detention of our comrade of the CCF Gerasimos Tsakalos a few hours before the expiry date, above his bed, while he was also going through his 23rd day on hunger strike.
For all this that he has done we decided to also send him our own revenge gift. Of course, not to the glass tower of the appellate, where with the attitude of a thousand cardinals behind his office he signs the shitty legal papers against our brothers and sister, but sending our parcel to his personal residence, where he feels safe. We know that all these scumbags, such as Mokkas, after their sacred duty to hold captive the lives of dozens of people, go back to the warmth of their own home, pretending to be an honourable husband and parent. Thus, we followed the specific target, located his house and chose to send the parcel bomb there. In this way we sent him our performance signed the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.
It is a fact that there is an insolence in this sector in the previous years. Parody trials sentencing people to dozens of years in prison with no evidence. Repeated detentions deprive freedom from whoever the cops consider a problem. And we are not just talking about armed guerillas. It is a tactic founded with anti-terror laws and is now used openly in dozens of cases. For all this insolence are responsible also all those who are released from prison and forget the big words of revenge against judges and prosecutors. Prisons therefore are also full with people who although feel wronged from the decisions of this sector, never transform this dissatisfaction into rage and rage into action.
Let this attack become an invitation for such acts of revenge, to all, inside and out of the prison walls, who have experienced the rot of juridical authority. It is not something unattainable. There are hundreds of juridical workers. They do not guard themselves, and it is not that hard to find them. Lets all attack them with whatever everyone can. From beatings and arsons up to bombs and executions. Only in this way will they understand there is a war. And if they do not understand, surely we will feel better that we avenged these inquisitors of justice. As for those inside the walls, the only decent attitude towards these scumbags is the discrediting of this farce called a trial. Let alone, when we speak of hostage revolutionaries and special terror trials.
With this attack we want to send our friendship and respect to our imprisoned brothers and sisters in Latin America. To dignified comrades Freddy Fuentivilla, Marcelo Villaroel and Juan Vega, who are accused in “caso security”. The three comrades participated in the armed struggle against the state of Chile in the 80s and 90s. Now they are in prison accused of bank robberies and the execution of a cop during a shoot out.
We also dedicate it to unrepentant comrade Jose Miguel Sanchez Jimenez. An urban guerilla who continued his struggle after the fall of the junta in Chile, because as he wrote “i do not believe in their democracy”.
Also to anarchist vegan Braulio Arturo Duran Gonzalez, who is in prison in Mexico accused of attacks on ATMs.
To Hans Niemeyer who is accused of subversive action and attacks on symbols of authority. The Chilean state bailed him under house arrest. Hans, broke his bail though, escaping into clandestinity. Unfortunately, a few months ago he was arrested and imprisoned.
To our brother Henry Zegarrando, who is accused by the Bolivian state for attacks of FAI-Bolivia which took place in the country’s territory a while ago. Henry, was transferred from prison to special regime of house arrest.
As well we send our warmest greetings to our recently released brothers Mario Lopez, Ivan and Carlo. And of course a big hug which will hide from the cops our wanted friend and comrade Felicity Ann Ryder, for whom an arrest warrant has been put out for her in Mexico.
The Black International of Anarchists of Praxis through the FAI-IRF, is everywhere. In the imprisoned comrades, the wanted anarchists, the anarchists fighters of the streets.
This is why we want our voice and fires to travel to the other side of the globe, to far Indonesia, strengthening the actions of our brothers and sisters, in the FAI cells there. Recently, the cells of FAI-Indonesia, besides attacks against the system, carried out a campaign of counter-information concerning the execution of four prisoners by the special forces of the police. The four young prisoners were accused of a clash which took place in a bar and during which they killed a cop of the police special forces. A bit after their imprisonment there was a night time raid in the prisons where they executed the four prisoners in their cell, with kalashnikovs.
The comrades in Indonesia are not alone… All together, anarcho-individualists, nihilists, chaotics, we meet there where the new anarchy becomes practice. We want to meet through our actions and experiment with the diffuse of the Informal Anarchist Federation FAI. To mock the police control, become more dangerous, support the international anarchist solidarity and attack for it. That’s why -just like fire unites us- we share the same joy for an anarchist attack as well as the sadness for a captivity or death of a comrade.
Concluding, we would like to dedicate a few words to those who the echo of attack makes them feel the desire of action. We therefore send a guerilla signal of fire to the comrades of anarchist steki Nadir in Thessaloniki, which was once again the target of oppression. Towards a “movement” where the plague of reformism and communism is spreading constantly in order to completely take it over, anarchist steki Nadir, with all of its possible contradictions, remains an annoying reminder which says that “anarchy is not a product for sale on the ideological shelves of the supermarkets of the ‘veterans’ of the ‘movement’, but it is insurrectionist violence in the street… ”
Finally, we know that our comrades in Indonesia a few months ago dealt with a loss. Their, and our, brother Ryo, was stabbed to death in a clash. Their loss is our loss. This is why we decided to call the cell of the Conspiracy which sent the parcel bomb to the inquisitor, “Ryo” cell, as a token of honour and remembrance to the comrade who was killed…
Today the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire is reborn from its ashes, promoting The Phoenix Project. New cells of the Conspiracy are ready to unleash themselves into the new anarchist urban guerilla warfare. And to those reformist anarchists who slander us saying that our methods seem more more mafia-like, it’s only because they start to resemble leftist hippies…
WE CREATE CELLS OF FAI-IRF EVERYWHERE
FOR THE DIFFUSE OF THE ANARCHIST URBAN GUERILLA
STRENGTH and SOLIDARITY to ANARCHIST STEKI NADIR
STRENGTH and SOLIDARITY to the new nihilists, the anarchists of Praxis, the chaotics of Refusal, the armed minorities

Polisi adalah musuh. Ini adalah pernyataan final kami yang tidak akan lagi bisa ditawar. Polisi terlahir tidak untuk menjadi sahabat, secara individual maupun institusi, dan tidak bisa tidak dimasukkan dalam daftar musuh yang mesti mendapatkan pukulan paling keras. Sebagai institusi dan individu, polisi adalah mereka yang bertugas untuk melindungi peradaban dan eksploitasi yang dilakukannya terhadap bumi. Polisi -seperti juga instrumen penindas yang lain- bertugas mengamankan uang dan kepentingan investasi demi berlangsungnya hidup antroposentrisme seperti hari. Polisi tidak hanya sekedar representasi bagi kami. Sebaliknya, polisi adalah salah satu dari ribuan wajah dari kebiadaban hidup hari ini. Polisi layak diserang, sekeras mungkin.
Atas jasa-jasa polisi yang dengan setia menjadi anjing penjaga bagi domestikasi hidup, mereka dibekali dengan peralatan tempur yang digunakan untuk memerangi keinginan merdeka dan cita-cita kehidupan liar di mana aturan judisial dan perangkat hukum absen total. Mereka dilengkapi dengan senjata, perisai dan rompi anti peluru. Perangkat-perangkat diproduksi agar babi-babi ini dapat dengan percaya diri dalam menghadapi perang yang dialamatkan kepada tuan-tuan mereka.
Tapi mereka salah besar. Polisi-polisi babi itu salah besar jika menyangka bahwa kami tidak cukup berani untuk mengirimkan serangan kami tepat di bagian-bagian penting mereka. Seperti saat ini, ketika kami menempatkan dua buah jerigen berisi 5 liter bensin dan 5 liter solar dilengkapi dengan pemicu otomatis. Pemicu yang telah kami siapkan agar kami dapat menjauh dari lokasi serangan dan membuat mereka tidak akan bisa menangkap satupun dari kami. Waktu yang lebih dari cukup untuk kami membiarkan alam melindungi kami dengan menghapus seluruh jejak-jejak kaki kami.
Kami mencoba sebuah langkah baru untuk meradikalkan serangan kami dan memperluas efek kerusakan yang ditimbulkan dari setiap pukulan yang kami arahkan kepada musuh. Perangkat pembakar yang kami kirimkan ke sebuah pabrik saat dini hari Senin, 23 September, yang terletak di Jalan Suryani Terusan, Kelurahan Babakan, Kecamatan Babakan Ciparay, Bandung, Jawa Barat.
Alasannya? Pabrik ini memproduksi rompi anti peluru bagi polisi dan tentara. Pabrik ini adalah salah satu sumber produksi peralatan perang bagi babi-babi ini. Rompi anti peluru untuk melindungi polisi dan tentara ketika mereka menembaki musuh, menembaki kami dan saudara-saudara kami.
Itu mengapa, membakar hangus pabrik ini adalah tujuan aksi ini.
Bersama aksi ini, kami mengirimkan salut hormat kami kepada para kombatan di belahan dunia lain dan tempat lain yang tanpa ragu melakukan serangan semaksimal mungkin. Salut kepada aksi bersama yang dilakukan oleh CCF Rusia dan ELF Rusia. Juga serangan tanpa henti dari kombatan-kombatan Amigo de la Tierra – FAI di Argentina. Juga serangan beruntun dari para pemberani di CCF dan ICR dalam Projek Phoenix.
Aksi ini juga adalah salam dan pelukan hangat kami kepada individu-individu pemberani yang diculik oleh negara namun terus melancarkan perang dalam keterbatasan geraknya. Kepada Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Marco Camenisch, Hans Niemeyer, Walter Bond, para kombatan dari Sel Dalam Penjara CCF serta para tahanan di Yunani, Italia dan Chile yang tidak bisa kami sebutkan satu persatu namun selalu berada di dalam hati kami.
Kehidupan Liar, Sekarang!

The police are the enemy . This is our final statement that is not negotiable. Police are not born to be friends, as individuals and as an institution, and can not be excluded from the list of enemies that must be addressed by for our attacks. As an institution and as individuals, the police goal is to protect civilization and the exploitation it is doing to the earth.
The objective of the police -as well as the other repressive instruments- is to secure the money and investment interests for the sake of the anthropocentric way of life as it is today. The police are not for representing our interests. Instead, the police are one of the thousands of faces of outrage alive today. Police must be attacked, as hard as possible.
For their loyal services as guard dogs for the domestication of life, they are equipped with combat equipment that is used against free will and the aspirations of wildlife where the judiciary and the rule of law are totally absent. They are equipped with weapons, armor and bulletproof vests. The devices are manufactured so that the pigs can act with confidence in the face of the war that is addressed to their masters.
But they were wrong. The pigs have a totally wrong idea if they think that we are not brave enough to send our attack right to their essential sectors. As of this moment, when we put two jerry cans containing 5 liters of petrol and 5 liters of diesel equipped with an automatic trigger. Triggers that we have prepared so that we can move away from the scene of the attack and make them not be able to catch any of us. Which is more than enough time for us to let nature protects us by removing all traces of our feets.
We tried a new step to radicalize our attacks and extend the effects of the damage from any blows that we direct to the enemy. Incendiary devices placed at a factory during the early hours on Monday, September 23, located on Canal Street Suryani, Babakan Village, District Babakan Ciparay, Bandung, West Java.
The reason? This factory manufactures bulletproof vests for cops and army. This plant is one of the sources for the production of war equipment for these pigs. Bullet-proof vests to protect police and soldiers when they open fire on the enemy, open fire on us and on our brothers. That’s why, this place is burning, charred, and this is the purpose of this action.
Together with these actions, we send our respectful salute to the combatants in other parts of the world and other places who without hesitation attack as much as possible. Salute to the joint actions undertaken by CCF Russia and the Russian ELF. Also the relentless attack from combatants Amigo de la Tierra – FAI in Argentina. Also the multiple attacks by the brave ones of CCF and ICR in Project Phoenix.
This action also is our warm greetings and hugs to the brave individuals who were abducted by the state but continue to wage war whilst their physical movements are limited. To Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Marco Camenisch, Hans Niemeyer, Walter Bond, the combatants of CCF Imprisoned Members Cell and the prisoners in Greece, Italy and Chile that we can not mention one by one, but they are always in our hearts.
Bring down the civilization
Wild Life, now!

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…)

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)
Wednesday, August 28th, 2013
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…)

Two years in jail, it’s two years too much !
September the 14th of 2013- Let’s all mobilize everywhere to protest against the legitimization of torture in Sonja Suder’s trial and for her liberation.
September the 14th of 2011, Sonja and her friend Christian have been extradited by France to be given to German cops and jailed. Christian has been freed since but Sonja is still in jail. They left Germany in 1978 when, after a fierce repression of the revolutionary movements, every person involved in the radical protest could fear being the target of State revenge.
For two years, Sonja has been in custody in the high-security district of the prison Frankfurt-Preungesheim ; for a year she’s been enduring a trial grounded on two testimonies : one from a penitent given against a remission, the other given under torture in 1978 by a man suspected to belong to the Revolutionary Cells (RZ). If the penitent [snitch] Hans-Joachim Klein testified without shame in the Frankfurt court to give the umpteenth version of a testimony full of nonsense and contradictions (that the judge thinks worth considering anyway), Hermann F., on the contrary, always protested against the elements standing in the cross-examination he has been through : these elements are just the result of four months of torture outside of any procedural frame.

Portishead: Responsibility claim for major arson of police firearms training building and attack on security service vehicles (UK)
Wednesday, August 28th, 2013
August 27, 2013 – Responsibility claim for large-scale arson of £16million police firearms training facilities and vandalism of vehicles of the corporate security services:
The (under construction) Police Firearms Training Centre in Black Rock Quarry, Portishead, situated directly beneath the Avon and Somerset Police regional headquarters was our target on the night of 26th August, and we left it with flames licking high. The facility is intended to serve forces across the South West.
After climbing into the quarry we used accelerant to burn the major electrical cables at five junction points throughout the complex, and doused and lighted a pallet of electrical fittings and wires. More than twelve hours later the fire is still burning. It put smiles on our faces to realise how easy it was to enter their gun club and leave a fuck you signature right in the belly of the beast, with a curious fox as our only witness.
On the same night others of us attacked two vehicles near St George, Bristol with paint stripper and by slashing the tyres – one G4S and one Amey. In the UK and globally G4S provide prison and security services and profit from many aspects of prison society. Amey, in a joint venture with GEO transport prisoners in England and Wales and run courthouses in Bristol and North Somerset.
In the City around us the lock down increases; there is a general atmosphere of rising fear and powerlessness; there is more and more surveillance, and security guards with handcuffs appear on more and more doors. Tensions across the world are simmering as people lose faith in the system. As a response to this insecurity the state is militarising it’s police with firearms, remote control drones and ‘non-lethal’ weapons that regularly kill. At the same time they develop the preventative ‘soft cop’ buffer of community support officers, liaison teams and so on, that are more fitting with the democratic image. They even get some help from leftists such as John Drury from Aufheben with his contributions on crowd control, who is as terrified of the unmanageable as the ruling classes are. The British state is a world leader in counter-insurgency techniques. Their expertise is the result of generations long brutal colonisation, like in India, Kenya and to this day in Ireland. (more…)

Civilization is not established by itself but by the people who support it. People who turned themselves into one of the poles of the civilization. Humans are the ones who gave birth to civilization. It also means that no one is innocent or not guilty in this present life. Every one plays their part in supporting the sustainability of civilization. So, every part of work, values, property, actions and every one who enjoy the benefits from civilization are enemies for us.
How it can be?
Humans are the creators for what is so-called: Culture. Culture is the direct mirror of civilization. Culture is but one of the brainwashing processes to make one bow and degrade the wild desires. Culture is not only a batch of values but tools of repression and hegemony. And two forms of among many culture’s faces is school and arts.
It lead us to send our fire to the Arts Institute of Jakarta located in Cikini, on 20th August. We brought our hatred to the heart of the hangout place of artists who are only puppets of civilization. We put an incendiary device in an empty room of the third floor in the afternoon. We did our action directly in the face of a group of artists who are the self-considered “avant-garde” and who felt that they were revolutionaries. We set the fire to laugh at their passivity which is nothing but another gesture that supports the civilization to keep running.
Arts Institute of Jakarta for a long time are filled with illusions. This place breed individuals who play a main role in creating a “counter-culture” which is only another culture, rather than to discover and attack the whole picture of culture: Civilization. They produce songs, paintings, buildings, poems, and different forms of arts to help civilization stick its nails of domination.
Our only regret is how the fire does not accomplish itself to burn down the whole building because of another of civilization’s helpers: the firefighters, who came in less than one hour to extinguish fires. But it’s not the end or our last action. We will hit you again.
PS: We send our greetings to the FAI / Friends of Earth in Argentina who burned down hundreds of cars and comrades of ELF-Russia. Also to the revolutionary prisoners around the world.

Our shoes are worn out from all the boring peace walks we have joined. Not only have we noticed holes on the shoe soles, but we have also realised that we are stuck in one place and our inner ferocity is now lulled into gentleness. Demonstrations are not a good outlet for our anger, which cannot be satisfied with mere tramping the streets, all under the watchful eye of the police. Thus, we feel forced to seek new paths of action.
This is why, on the 1st of May we went for a walk without informing the authorities. We took with us a few litres of paint and made a resolution that we need to do something for our comrades. We painted windows of two banks located in two different parts of the city. Their owners should know that not every potential visitor will have peaceful intentions and will beg for a loan.
We dedicate the operation to Felicity Ryder, an anarchist from Australia, who has been hiding for months from the watchdogs, as well as to those arrested in Greece, Italy and other parts of the world.
Banks are a perfect target for anarchist attacks. Behind their rehearsed smiles, the clerks hide everyday tragedies. Banks play the role of blood vessels of this fucked up system, they back up armies and multinational corporations, they help to concentrate the capital in the hands of very few, they protect business of the rich, and speculate with the money of the poor. Banks are the very institutions on which financial market dictatorship rests. Through banks’ throats there runs a monstrous assembly tape of contemporary civilisation, which covers the globe with chains of wage labour causing exploitation, alienation, and eco-catastrophe.

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!

June 11th has been defined as a day of international solidarity with comrades Eric McDavid and Marie Mason and with all political prisoners who are incarcerated all over the world. Imprisoned comrades experience this situation not only due to their direct action and the transubstantiation of their words into action, but also because of their choice to be anarchists.
In the struggle for degradation and destruction of state/authoritarian complex, anarchists comrades and activists-abroad and in Greece, too-consider as an integral part of animal and earth liberation human liberation, too.
In U.S.A., the Animal Liberation Front and the Earth Liberation Front have been proclaimed by FBI as the No. 1 enemy of domestic terrorism. Eric McDavid and Marie Mason were arrested in January 2006 and September 2008 respectively,
without proof but with plenty of accusations. The State’s choice of their imprisonment was far more than random. (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.
