Berlin: Security company vehicles torched by anarchists (Germany)

Friday, February 27th, 2015

For a hellfire on earth…

And once again autonomous cells struck. This night we carried out a sabotage in Berlin, in complicity with all the fighters of our worldwide conspiracy. With fire we transformed two cars belonging to the company ‘Sicherheit Nord’ completely worthless for the watchdogs of the system. With this attack we promise our attention and support to those persecuted and incarcerated by the pigs.

Strength to Tamara Sol Farías Vergara, Mónica Andrea Caballero and Francisco Javier Solar Domínguez.

Strength to the prisoners of the Revolutionary Struggle (Epanastatikos Agonas), who are locked up in maximum security prisons.

The dogs that are hunting us down will be hunted by us at any time. Furthermore, we enjoyed the attempted prison escape by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, as well as the assassination of the chief executioner of Domokos type C prison.

We encourage all those who are able, to make attacks against the prison system on a daily basis.

Also the prison laborers who bake donuts for the Olympics propaganda, and thus further dig their own grave, could instead poison a few sports fans of the Berlin Senate with arsenic.

… for a society without coercion and prisons!
For Anarchy!

Freedom for all prisoners!

Translation notes:
Recently, as part of the city authorities’ push to represent Germany in the bid for the 2024 Olympics, the Berlin Justice Senator Thomas Heilmann tried to give away donuts (Pfannkuchen) decorated with the Olympic rings that were baked by inmates from Tegel prison.

Final message on video reads: “See each other on the 18th of March in Frankfurt – make ECB’s opening into a disaster.”

Athens: Group of Popular Fighters claims responsibility for Israeli Embassy attack (Greece)

Saturday, February 7th, 2015

“Group of Popular Fighters”, which in the past had carried out an attack with Kalashnikovs against the German ambassador’s residence in the Athens suburb of Halandri on 13 December 2013, has taken responsibility for a similar attack on the Israeli Embassy which took place 12 December 2014.

Last week an anonymous caller rang mainstream news outlet Efimerida ton Syntakton and told them where they could find the USB stick which contained the claim. The document of responsibility is 19 pages long and has not been released yet.

The armed attack against the embassy followed a similar operational detail as used in their previous attacks, validating their claim, plus the results of the forensic ballistics confirmed that the weapons used in the attack were the same as the previous bloodless and highly-symbolic attacks which the group has taken responsibility for.

The armed group first appeared on 14 January 2013 when it carried out an attack on the New Democracy party headquarters on Sigrou Avenue. The group took responsibility for the attack in a statement released six months later.

During that attack a group of four people had attempted to fire a rocket at the offices, which however failed, as was explained in the communique issued by the group.

Another attacker subsequently fired 9 bullets at a window on the third floor. The bullets penetrated the glass with one bullet falling adjacent to (Ex-President) Antonis Samaras’s desk.

The attackers then left the scene in a Toyota Corolla that had been stolen a few days earlier. The charred remains of the vehicle was found in an empty lot 3-4 kilometers away.

The group’s second attack came on the 30 December 2013 when at least 4 people arrived outside the residence of the German Ambassador Wolfgang Dolt in the Athens suburb of Halandri. From the street the attackers sprayed the building with at least 60 bullets. The majority struck the outside of building including the outside wall of the room in which the ambassador’s daughter was sleeping. Another bullet entered the living room of an apartment behind the ambassador’s residence.

A statement was later issued claiming responsibility for the attack in which they stated that it had been carried out in memory of Dimitris Christoulas, a man who had committed suicide in Syntagma Square in April of 2012. “Dimitris Christoulas made the choice to give his life a tragic ending, as opposed to living a tragic life,” the authors wrote, adding, “However this act was not isolated, it did not concern only him and the dead end he had reached.”

In the same declaration the group revealed a double failure in its attempts to strike a Mercedes Benz dealership in a northern suburb of Athens with a shoulder fired missile on the 12th of January 2014, writing:

“On Sunday the 12-01-14 at about 23.00 we succeeded in approaching the target without being seen and this time we attempted to not have a repeat of last year’s misfortune outside of the offices of New Democracy, despite the fact that we came close to this outcome. And this because on the first attempt to fire a rocket against the offices of Mercedes, it once again failed due to faulty ammunition, however this time we employed the second rocket that we had brought with us and which ultimately fired normally and took the predetermined course. The fact that even as this text is being written about our attack it hasn’t become – in any way – known to enforcement authorities and to the media leads us to the following conclusions: either there has been a pathetic attempt to cover up the action (which will be revealed in the coming days after the publication of this declaration), or, because of our erroneous choice of shooting position, (possibly far from the target) the rocket did not travel the desired distance and is located around the perimeter of the Mercedes-Benz offices.”

Athens: ‘Solidarity is Struggle and Action’ / ‘Solidarieta’ e’ Lotta e Azione’ / ‘La Solidarite c’est la Lutte et l’Action’ (Greece)

Saturday, February 7th, 2015

SOLIDARITY IS STRUGGLE AND ACTION

During the last years after the outbreak of the world financial crisis, which, since 2009 has hit Greece among others countries, the state, under the authority of international financial organizations such as the International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank and the European Union, has adopted a policy that aims to rescue the capitalistic system. This was followed at the same time by the intense increase of the suppression and the further hardening of the state against those who fight for the subversion of capitalism and the state, against those who choose armed revolutionary action, challenging the state’s monopoly of violence and power, against those who, using every means of fighting, stand against this policy of salvaging the system.

Marseille: 12th Feb – Film screening of the film “Caso Bombas” on anarchists in Chile / Solidarité avec les incuplée de l’Opération Pandora (France)

Saturday, February 7th, 2015

For the address: blancarde2015@riseup.net
*The film is in Spanish but the subtitles are in English

International solidarity with those implicated in Operation Pandora

“For those who struggle, the sense of solidarity intends to dismantle
the loneliness of incarceration, waging a battle against forgetting our
comrades abducted by states, bringing to light the logic of domination
that seeks to condemn them to surrender.”

anarchists of Pandora

A year after the end of the “Caso Bombas” farce, the Spanish and Chilean
ministries, judges and cops are working together on a new case, this
time on this side of the ocean. Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar,
both ex-suspects in the “Caso Bombas” case, are arrested in Barcelona,
suspected of placing an explosive at the Basílica del Pilar in Zaragoza,
planning a similar action and belonging to an alleged terrorist
organisation. (more…)

Call for action in solidarity with captured comrade Nicanor Cortez (USA)

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

Last week, Nicanor Cortez was arrested for his alleged participation in property destruction in the anti-police riots in Oakland, California, during late November and December. He faces seven counts of felony vandalism and a misdemeanor charge for concealing his face with a mask. Specifically, he is accused of smashing the windows of the Oakland Tribune [newspaper], the police internal affairs division, as well as other businesses.

This is a call for action in solidarity with our captured comrade. When the state captures our comrades we must answer that aggression with unrelenting fire and attack on the bastions of capitalist power. Strike hard wherever you are. Don’t let them take one of us without fury and destruction.

Harness the flame while you still have breath.

Kadıkoy, Istanbul: Anarchist solidarity with imprisoned anarchists in Spanish Prisons (Turkey)

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

Last night, in Kadıköy, anarchist groups called ‘Anarchist Front’ and ‘Shadowlesses’, took an action in support of imprisoned anarchists after ‘Operation Pandora’. With black flags and masks, anarchists started to march to a much used street, attacked ATM’s, bank windows and some capitalist shops like Adidas and chanted for solidarity with anarchists prisoners in Spain and all around the world.

During the march, anarchists took down dustbins to blockade roads and attacked some ATM’s and multinational capitalist shops. Also, they spoke out about the situation of imprisoned anarchists in Spain prisons. And they chanted: “İnsurrection, Destruction, Anarchy, Long Live Statelessness of People, Freedom for Anarchist Prisoners”.

Santiago: Revolutionary solidarity – Incendiary barricades for prisoners in Greece ($hile)

Friday, January 16th, 2015

Complicidad y solidaridad más allá de los idiomas, banderas y fronteras.

Con el comienzo del año y aprovechando las celebraciones, el gobierno griego dio comienzo a un proceso de traslado de prisionerxs hacia la Cárcel de tipo C de Domokos, con el claro objetivo de aislar a lxs prisionerxs en guerra e intentar amainar la lucha anárquica que cada día se intensifica en las calles y dentro de los siniestros muros de las prisiones.

El primer prisionero trasladado fue el compañero anarquista Nikos Maziotis miembro de Lucha Revolucionaria a lo que rápidamente de sumaron Dimitris Koufontinas, miembro de la organización 17 Noviembre, Kostas Gournas miembro de Lucha Revolucionaria, Yannis Naxakis y Grigoris Sarafoudis, condenados por atraco a mano armada y por supuesta participación en las CCF.

Santiago: Desde Chile hasta España – Solidaridad insurrecta ($hile)

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

English translation via War on Society

Un Paleógrafo es un paleógrafo…pero es más que un trozo de papel cuando
viene enmarcado en una forma de ver y entender el combate desde la
multiformidad permanente.

Es un mínimo gesto de respuesta, un guiño cómplice a nuestrxs compañerxs
secuestradxs por el Estado Español, nuestras complicidades se extienden
mas allá de cualquier frontera.

La complicidad entre el Estado chileno y Español se hizo evidente en el
coqueteo publico entre sus organismos represivos, materializándose con el
encuentro entre sus autoridades con diversos viajes entre ambos
territorios durante los últimos meses.

La operación Pandora no es simplemente la re-edición ciega de un modelo
represivo, sino que además incluye un movimiento de avanzada, contemplando
la falsificación de la realidad al apuntar a los GAC como una célula de
acción directa (tal como aquí las casas okupas fueron señaladas como
fachadas de una “organización terrorista”). Pero además el salto represivo
esta dado en la fantasiosa trampa de acusar a lxs compañerxs de conformar
una “organización terrorista” que no ha cometido ningún ataque conocido.
Esto es la Democracia, el absurdo que se autoafirma para perpetuarse en el
poder. Como antiautoritarixs no tenemos nada que mendigar, solo declarar
nuestro desprecio.

Desde las diferentes latitudes y territorios aprendamos de la maniobra
represiva en España, entendiendo que la Guerra Social se vive a nivel
global. Los Estados se comparten información y estrategias. Nosotrxs no
solo contemplamos, sino que somos parte de la misma marea contra el poder.

No olvidamos a nuestrxs hermanxs Francisco y Mónica, nuestros corazones
han estado y estarán con ustedes.

Solidaridad y lucha con lxs compañerxs secuestradxs por la Operación
Pandora y con nuestrxs entrañables compañerxs de la Conspiración de
Células del Fuego y Christodoulos Xiros recientemente
encarcelado:¡Guerrillero una vez, Guerrillero Siempre!

Vehicles owned by National Postal Agency and a security company torched by Permanent Unholy Synod / FAI-IRF (Greece)

Monday, January 12th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

[Athens, 25-31/12/2014]

FROM CHILE TO GREECE

“Bad evening my lords even if it’s not your will… the rebels are on the ramparts fuck your Christ!”*

These “holy” days when social problems are buried beneath the hypocritical smiles of a rotten society – that forgives itself with a smokescreen of fake love and joy, in an atmosphere full with festive togetherness, trying to stimulate the sense of security, prosperity and of a fictional consuming ability of the citizens in order for the commercial economy affected by the crisis to counterbalance its losses – and the streets of the metropolis inundated by giggly consuming assholes, while dozens of homeless people are suffering in the darkest corners and workers in the trade sector (without them being blameless) spit blood for the exhausting work hours and the “white nights” of the bosses, we decided to “mail” our own gifts to our loved ones and at the same time send some greeting mines to our enemies with the promise of a rebellious 2015.

Istanbul: Anarchist solidarity statement to comrade Nikos Romanos (Turkey)

Tuesday, December 9th, 2014

via actforfree:

Today, with all the rage against powers that seizes lives, with the conviction of a free world, black flags are being waved all around the world.

Against companies that exploit our labour for more profit; against States that murder many of us in the name of the borders they have drawn up; against all powers that fill their pockets with our lives that they destroy, making us poorer and making the rich richer; rebellion is alive in the rage of anarchism.

The rage against bosses, companies, murderers and States, is propagating in full flood with black flags. The sorrow of being disappeared and murdered is now turning into anger, and the streets are burning with rage all over. (more…)

İstanbul: ‘ELF/Insurrectionary Solidarity Faction’ sabotaged a road roller for Nikos Romanos (Turkey)

Friday, December 5th, 2014

In the night of 1st of December, we broke down windows of a road roller and cut its cables in the Kocasinan district of Istanbul, with the intention to show our solidarity to anarchist prisoner Nikos Romanos, who is on hunger strike since 24 days and then to Yannis Michailidis, Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, and Dimitris Politis who have started a hunger strike in support of Nikos Romanos in the Greek prisons.

Then we spray-painted some slogans on a wall close to the target: “Nikos Romanos” and “Fire to the prison cells“.

With this small action, we also salute the warriors who have fallen while not giving way to ISIS butchers, we salute rebels who refuse to stay as protestors, then fight
against cops and attack to the targets of repression and exploitation in Mexico, France, Ferguson and Santiago, we salute ALF-ELF cells who increase actions and attacks in Istanbul and around, we salute the insurrectionaries who got bored of being armchair revolutionaries, who got bored of insurrectional vaporings and Fetishism of Organisation and who got bored of losing their anarchic imagination in
the swamp of liberal opposition.

Until freedom of Nikos Romanos and all anarchist prisoners of war around the world…
Solidarity… Attack… İnsurrection…

Until Total Liberation…
Social War!

Recent attacks and acts of sabotage (also) in solidarity with comrades on hunger strike

Call for a Black December!

via contrainfo:

Chile:

On November 28th, comrades in Santiago decided to attack a public transport line with the purpose of calling for a Black December in memory of Sebastián Oversluij, anarchist killed in December 2013 during a failed bank expropriation. This action was also intended to express solidarity with imprisoned compañera Tamara Sol Farías Vergara, as well as other fighters prosecuted, incarcerated or fallen in combat. Once the public transport bus was engulfed in flames, they threw pyrotechnics to make their rage and rebellion flash more forcefully. “(…) We call for a Black December in memory of comrade Sebastian Oversluij. Solidarity with Tamara Sol Vergara. Hans Niemeyer, Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar to the streets! Strength to comrade Nikos Romanos. An affectionate embrace to the comrades who attacked the PDI. Mauricio Morales and Sebastian Oversluij present!”

On November 26th, comrades carried out a direct action outside the Juan Gómez Millas campus in Santiago, erecting street barricades and blocking the traffic for almost an hour. A young student, who had nothing to do with the action, was arrested by cops. An anonymous communiqué mentions among others: “(…) May our ideals live in everyday and violent action. A salute to the combatants: Juan Aliste Vega, Marcelo Villarroel, Freddy Fuentevilla, Carlos Quiduleo, Juan Flores, Nataly Casanova, Guillermo Duran, Alejandro Astorga, Sol Vergara and all prisoners in the territory occupied by the State of Chile, as well as to Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar, to the prisoners of Mexico, Indonesia, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Greece, to Nikos Romanos and Yannis Michailidis, both on hunger strike demonstrating that the anti-authoritarian struggle does not end in prison, but another breach opens from there, other means to keep blowing out the existent. Also all our love and memory to our comrades who have fallen in combat Claudia Lopez, Jhony Cariqueo, Mauricio Morales, Sebastian Oversluij, Jorge Saldivia, the latter two brothers killed in bank robberies. All our loving remembrance will always take the form of fire and war against every authority. Long live anarchy.”

United Kingdom:

The FAI Torches in the Night/Earth Liberation Front claimed responsibility for burning a vehicle in the service of the French multinational GDF Suez on November 25th in the Long Ashton area, Bristol (England), where they also torched an audacious 4×4, two luxury sports cars and a vehicle of OCS, one of the top security companies in the UK, in revenge for Rémi Fraisse, the nuclear industry, the prison society and the Green Capital: “(…) Against class society and industrial development, even and especially the green-washed ones – Victory for ZAD/Testet and ZAD/Notre-Dames-des-Landes – Victory to the rotating hunger strike in the Greek prison system (in support of our FAI confederate Nikos Romanos) and all prisoners at war with the prison.”

Greece:

In the early hours of November 30th, a mini-riot broke out in the neighbourhood of Exarchia, Athens, including Molotov cocktail attacks against anti-riot squadrons, flaming barricades, and smashing of luxury cars, while slogans in solidarity with anarchist hunger striker Nikos Romanos were being chanted loudly in the streets.
At approximately the same nighttime, in the city of Thessaloniki, a group of individuals reportedly launched Molotov cocktails at the cops guarding the Turkish consulate.

Late on November 29th, a group of anarchists attacked a police station in Volos with stones and paint, shouting slogans in solidarity with Nikos Romanos.

On November 29th, a group of comrades sabotaged a scheduled meeting of the minister of Public Order Vassilis Kikilias with mainstream media thugs in Patras. The anarchist intervention took place outside the offices of a local newspaper, in solidarity with the hunger strikers Nikos Romanos and Yannis Michailidis. The cops were caught completely off guard, and hurried the minister away from there. One of the shouts was: “Nikos Romanos, we’re with you; as for you, Kikilias: go fuck yourself!”

At daybreak of November 29th, the offices of the Legal Council of the State in Heraklion, on Crete, were attacked in solidarity with anarchists Nikos Romanos and Yannis Michailidis, both on hunger strike since 10/11 and 17/11 respectively. The front door and first-floor windows were broken, and paint was thrown inside and outside the building.

In a display of solidarity with anarchist hunger strikers Nikos Romanos and Yannis Michailidis, a bank ATM was torched in downtown Athens on 23/11 and a branch of the Hellenic Post was explosively attacked on 27/11 in Pefki (the Athens neighbourhood where Theofilos Mavropoulos was seriously wounded and arrested in May 2011, after a shootout with two patrol officers, when Yannis Michailidis managed to get away driving the patrol car of the same cops).

In the night towards November 26th, anarchists vandalized ATMs with glue in the city of Ioannina, in solidarity with the hunger strikers Nikos Romanos, Yannis Michailidis and Iraklis Kostaris (the latter conducted a hunger strike from 29/10 until 28/11, when his request was denied).

In the early hours of November 26th, bank ATMs were doused in gasoline and set on fire in Nea Smyrni, Athens, as a token of incendiary solidarity with anarchist comrades Nikos Romanos and Yannis Michailidis.

In another communiqué, arsonists claimed responsibility for a string of attacks (ATMs and vehicles torched) in nine different districts of Athens, in solidarity with anarchist hunger striker Nikos Romanos.

- Strength to N.Romanos, on hunger strike since 10/11 -

On November 26th, at midday, the scumbag lawyer Alexis Kougias, who defended the cops that murdered Alexis Grigoropoulos, was assaulted when spotted in the Athens neighbourhood of Exarchia. This (random) attack was dedicated to Nikos Romanos – friend of slain Grigoropoulos, who witnessed the killing in December 2008 – and Yannis Michailidis.

On November 23rd, comrades in Thessaloniki went on the offensive, and placed a homemade explosive device consisting of gas canisters at the house of police unionist Dimitris Padiotis (president of the Thessaloniki Police Officers Union), located in the area of Kastra. They claimed this action in support of captive anarchist Nikos Romanos, on hunger strike as of 10/11, making also mention of the ongoing solidarity hunger strike of anarchist prisoner Yannis Michailidis (since 17/11), and imprisoned 17N member Iraklis Kostaris.

On November 19th, the local offices of the main ruling party Nea Dimokratia in the Athens district of Ambelokipi (situated between the Greek police headquarters and the Ambelokipi police station) were attacked in a display of “loud” solidarity with Nikos Romanos, Iraklis Kostaris and Yannis Michailidis.

On November 17th, a security company vehicle was burned in the area of Metamorfosi, Athens, in solidarity with Nikos Romanos, Iraklis Kostaris and Yannis Michailidis.

On November 13th, the Group of Proletarian Attack targeted the Galatsi tax office in Athens, intending to burn down the archives section inside the building with a high-power incendiary device. Due to an unforeseen obstacle, the incendiary mechanism was finally detonated in the outdoor space. Among other things, the group expressed solidarity with Iraklis Kostaris and Nikos Romanos in their fight for prison furloughs, “for breaths of life away from the galleys of bourgeois democracy”.
