Fire to Sodexo! Arson of company vehicle – Solidarity to Bernhard, Peter and Thomas of K.O.M.I.T.E.E. (Germany)
Monday, September 15th, 2014
From Actforfree, via an Italian translation by imprisoned eco-anarchist Marco Camenisch:
For almost 20 years company Sodexo has been the target of people like us, who are struggling against the racist and neo-colonialist system. It started in 1997, when Sodexo offered to take on catering and other services destined to refugees in the knowledge this would result in a huge turnover. Since then Sodexo has been internationally known as a company who became a big multinational operating in many countries under low cost management, i.e. by racially reducing human life to a question of figures.
After the justice sector was privatized in Great Britain, Sodexo took on the management of 5 prisons. In this case too, people without the status of citizens were put in the hands of private companies by the State in exchange of huge amounts of money. According to economy laws these companies gained total power in the exploitation of their resources. And they’ve been saving on human lives first and foremost (…)
Greetings to the rebels locked up in one of the British Sodexo jails, who rose up in March when 50 prisoners took control of an entire prison unit for a remarkable length of time, and to the group that gave us news of this and attacked the court of Yate with gas and petrol.
During a No-Border Camp in Brussels, a Sodexo building had all its windows smashed and another one was flooded with oil.
Following the abuses of those who want to govern migration in Berlin and elsewhere, we think it necessary to widen these practices of attack and at the same time to develop a strategy aimed at damaging the deportation machine well beyond symbolic gestures.
After the arrest of Bernhard of K.O.M.I.T.E.E., history is repeating itself and we all should take the occasion to gather new strength and knowledge. Here is our contribution in a beautiful night: we dedicate the arson of a Sodexo vehicle in Neukolln to Bernhard, Peter and Thomas, who almost managed to blow up a jail in Grunau 1995, following a string of deportations, and who had to go on the run until today; unfortunately Bernhard was arrested at the beginning of July 2014 in Venezuela and is awaiting extradition to Germany.
We agree with the communiqué issued by the comrades of the three, which we quote here: “What’s happening on the borders outside the EU every day, the super-armed Frontex apparatus, the inhuman conditions in German migrants’ detention camps and also the struggle of people living as clandestine demonstrate how courageous and visionary was the attempt of the comrades at putting an end to this practice of the system.”
It’s time we remembered the past: not only the K.O.M.I.T.E.E but also the Revolutionary Cells (RZ) who have given strong contributions to this struggle.
Let’s consider what has been done, let’s think of new things to do, new strategies for the struggle against state racism and exploitation. Let’s increase the pressure on the bosses and let’s make space to a new liberated world.
Fire to Sodexo and to all the exploiters in this world order that despises humanity. If people are dying it is our duty to act and to intensify the struggle against those who only care for profit and don’t give a shit of human lives.
Burning vehicles can only be small lights in the sky of resistance, many small stars form a constellation, all together they make a bright night.

A night in Bagcılar… we were at the foot of the Beast
Even though, the deepest darkness of the night is thought to hide all of this system’s infamies, it also becomes accomplice to some furious hookers who want to destroy this shit before the dawn. Although street lights, shop lights, surveillance cameras and MOBESEs sure- the eyes and ears of the State- prowl to betray us by giving a feeling like we’re under the surveillance of a rapist, this can not prevent us from transforming our rage against this rotten system to action by coalescing with shadows which remain for us from the night.
Here in one of the nights again, in Istanbul/Bagcilar, we attacked a yellow beast, which only has a task to dig concrete disintergrating the land, which takes an active role in the clear-cut of forests and in the urbanization of the last places remaining without concrete, by cutting the blood stream and defusing the connection between its organs.
We took this action in order to contribute to the “Anarchist Prisoners Global Week of Solidarity (23-30 August)”. First, we dedicate this action to anarchist comrade Tamara Sol Farías Vergara who is now in prison under charge of shooting and wounding a security guard of a bank, then Nikos Maziotis, who is now in prison after being arrested in an armed conflict, claiming the tradition of never surrendering, and to his partner Panagiota Roupa who is on the run now. Also we dedicate this action to all anarchist and anti-authoritarian prisoners around the world who are fighting against the institutions of domination.
“We were awake last night, with the dawn somethings were going wrong somewhere.”

Olympia, Washington: Nissan Dealership Attack in Solidarity with 5E3 Prisoners Resulting in $100,000 Worth of Damage (USA)
Saturday, August 2nd, 2014
In the early hours of Friday, July 18th, we attacked the Nissan Dealership in the Olympia Automall by spraying brake fluid on and slashing the tires of new yet-to-be-sold cars. We did this in solidarity with Amelie, Carlos, and Fallon (Better known as the 5E3 Prisoners.).
These three were arrested in Mexico City in January 2014 in alleged connection the firebombing of a Government Building and Nissan Car Dealership in the center of the city. Whether these three be innocent or guilty, we know they desire a world that is free from domination, a world where anarchy has a potential to flourish and our enemies are forced to deal with consistent attacks. We know that Amelie, Carlos, and Fallon are brave individuals who will be able to handle whatever any state-force chooses to throw at them. We are inspired by their courage, and their confinement only make us wish to continue our attacks on institutions of domination, support for each other, desire for a world free of prisons and capital.
We attacked this dealership to let our comrades know that they are not alone, that despite their imprisonment the anarchist struggle still continues on. We hope to see more actions like this occur.
Remember; It’s Easy To Attack!
P.S. – According the Mainstream Media (link below) windows at the dealership were also smashed. While we wish we could say that we take credit for this, we are slightly puzzled how this action occurred, because all we used was brake fluid and knives. Perhaps the dealership was hoping to get more insurance money from this situation? As we all know capitalists are parasites. If indeed some other vandal was there that night – hats off!
Phoenix Project #14: ‘Live Wires FAI/ELF’ take responsibility for 4 Arsons against Bristol’s cellular transmission infrastructure over 24 Hours (UK)
Wednesday, June 11th, 2014
325 receives and transmits this communique released on the June 11th International Day of Solidarity for Marie Mason, Eric McDavid and all long-term anarchist prisoners:
Around Bristol between June 9th-10th, we left 7 mobile phone antennae in flames. Daily continuation of capitalist society is dependent on uninterrupted flows (of goods, people, data, and energy) and the communications grid is no exception. The limited uses most of us can make from these flows only mask the way they are mainly used to oversee and impose the dominant order, and increase its’ reach and control.
You need only look to how the values of connectivity, speed, and mobility that are embodied in a mobile phone (for example) facilitate a relentless consumer culture and the requirement to be available and flexible at all times: as much for the benefit of the boss and the advertiser as for your family or friends. This is fully consistent with the modern restructuring and decentralisation of the gigantic productive system which this society subjects us to. Hindering all this was our objective.
2 antennae went up simultaneously, in Hambrook and outside Ram Hill business park in Coalpit Heath, both owned by O2. This is also not the first time O2 have been singled out for damage acts because of the contracts they hold in the migrant detention industry, with cops, and tagging for the probation service. Some hours later a 3rd O2 antenna went up in Coombe Dingle, at the same time as a 4th fire was lit after gaining access to transmission units connected to the huge BT telecommunication tower in Lockleaze. Signals that will have been affected are those of O2, T-Mobile, Orange and Vodaphone.
These corporations variously are connected to the field of military equipment and armament, use prison labour, and are famous for readily collaborating with electronic policing by the secret services (now that widespread data-surveillance is well known) while not even stopping at financing Oxford university with its’ extensive animal experimentation labs. This has already led to their interests being attacked in Berlin (T-Mobile’s parent company*), Paris (Orange*), and Banbury (Vodaphone*).
For all above reasons it is always good to harm these corporations, structurally and economically, and then there is the issue of the antennae themselves radiating who knows how much harmfulness to nearby species. There were the publicised cases in Bristol even some years ago of a woman in Shirehampton who complained of the affects of an antenna put up on her high rise flatblock and later died from a brain tumor, while an antenna nicknamed The Tower of Doom was withdrawn from Staple Hill after cancer rates soared. Evidence has mounted up that prolonged use of mobile phones damages the immune system, decreases fertility, and causes brain tumors and cancers: especially in the young. We should mention that the antenna we burned in Coombe Dingle is one of three on the grounds of a university sports pitch also marketed for schools, as are many others. Additionally, twisted lab technicians claim to have deduced from experimentation on other mammals (built on torture like so much scientific research) that exposure while still in the womb “significantly damages brain function, structure and behaviour and suggested that these exposures could contribute to children’s behavioural disorders”.
These products were and still are pushed on us as harmless, although nearly every study that claims this was funded by the industry itself, when we had no idea of the long term affects, similarly to the marketing of asbestos or smoking before they began to show their deadly toll (to use only 2 better known examples among thousands). These days even researchers at Bristol university concede the dangers of cellular use. What a surprise….the permanently wired environment turns out to be toxic, while companies make a killing in profits and the government receives billions in taxes and licensing. For most people prolonged contact with mobile phones or wireless networks in general seems unavoidable, for work or to avoid social marginalisation, in the street, on public transport, or at home: we are soaking in one more accumulative barrage in a poisonous, anti-human and anti-life civilisation that grows by the day.
A recurring feature of the estrangement that technologies such as mobile phones actually cultivate between individuals, is how many addicted to their constant use now prefer to text message or to “tweet” to avoid the prospect of real life contact, and how many only feel safe communicating from behind a device. It is now completely standard for people to spend the majority of their waking hours interfacing with one screen or another. Up and coming inventions such as Google Glass attempt to make this enclosure near total (although also dependent in part on uninterrupted transmission infrastructure). As a society that lives through highly complex technologies, we no longer fully inhabit our bodies and environment but instead some part of the techno-hive: and it is no longer only nerds and the young who practically call this virtual reality their home. As the sphere dominated by information technology expands, what is considered socially of importance in our actual lives shrinks to what can be conveyed and received by the device, and so narrowing human emotion and experience. Or think about the obsessive urge to treat modern life as something less to be lived than to be documented in each detail for passive consumption on the “social” networks, as another example of colonisation by capitalism and its’ technology.
Planning and carrying out your existence digitally also allows the possibilities of unprecedented surveillance, and it hinders active rebellion or even questioning of the dominant order by flagging up “abnormalities” in what you often voluntarily share with your friends or “Friends.” At the same time, concerted exploitation of the base populations around the world and ecological pillage to the point of collapse continues to fatten the same rich parasites’ pockets, and technological immersion helps people neither relate nor care. On the contrary millions now hunger for their part in the way of life that is killing everything.
With an anarchist perspective in search of free and fulfilling existence, we fight to do away with all technologies born from the toxification and slavery of mines, factories, and industrial infrastructures, and for our daily communication to be as unmediated as possible. Taking down these few nodes was not enough for us, it is not a case of simply abandoning the uses of a particular device alone, but it is erasing the whole social system which first trapped us in its’ “necessity” which is the challenge. We found antennae an easy way to start: it is simply a matter of burning tires between the exposed cables and away you go. In North Lanarkshire, Scottish villagers even felled one. By reflecting on radical and anti-industrial history in Britain (such as the Swing and Luddite insurrections), as well as contemporary anarchist guerrilla praxis, we can see the advantage of low-tech, cheap, and easily reproducible tactics to wreck machinery that encloses and impoverishes us, on an even more intimate level presently than ever before. These ubiquitous (and highly expensive) structures are spread around every town or city and further industrialising the countryside, where they are sometimes painted green in the attempt to camouflage them: and disgustingly even have bird and bat nesting boxes mounted on some. Their guardians cannot always be watching them all so it is up to our ingenuity to remain a step ahead and stretch their forces thin. This and every network has its’ weak points, in these cracks in the architecture of control that afford us leverage: a destructive capacity we are appropriating. As the promises of hyper-technified modern culture continue to show their shallowness, rebels will carry on acting against the noxious installations and the way of life they feed.
“….Resistance against the Technological-Industrial Machine lives only through the path of liberation from every power and order, runs towards an event horizon where nothing has been written yet.” – Letter from Gianluca Iacovacci, from C.R. San Michele prison
Our attack is not separate from overall anarchist subversion by all means, which naturally includes solidarity with our prisoners in enemy hands. A wild greeting from Bristol to Adriano Antonacci, no less than to his friend and comrade Gianluca (FAI/IRF Subversive Anti-Civilisation Individualities) whose brave lone acts in Rome he is also accused of. Hello to the new anarchist and anti-colonial groups in Hong Kong and Australia, and solidarity to the Paris ten accused of sabotaging prison profiteers.
Our attack came at a time when the networks are already set to be overloaded by the World Cup hysteria, to show our complicity with the insurgent fighters in Brazil as they answer massive dispossession and militarised slum clearances for the opulence of the games with street battles and arson. Because it should be remembered that the enthralling spectacle, that is staged to make the rich yet more money and to distract us from our daily humiliations, is based on the State and Capital’s violence against resisters, the indigenous, and the poorest in Brazilian society.
Let’s not forget Marie Mason and Eric McDavid: both are still behind bars after State repression and entrapment which followed an early string of Earth Liberation Front strikes in the USA. Years later the earth liberation struggle is not defeated either in spirit or in practice. The fight goes on with fur farms raided and emptied across North America, and our incendiary-minded sisters or brothers prowling the besieged Turkish forests, the streets of the Costa Rican metropolis, or the techno-industrial developments in Switzerland (on the last note: a quick reminder that the continuing legal threats against the released anarchists Silvia, Costas and Billy, and also the latest vindictive treatment of Marco Camenisch around his prison transfer, have not gone unnoticed by the international fire-starters).
Down with the society based on dominating earth and all its’ creatures.

An arsonist has started four fires in Banbury leaving the High Street closed. At about 2.15am, three ATMs in High Street were set alight causing damage to the buildings although no money was stolen. The three banks targeted were Santander, Yorkshire Bank and Lloyds. A short time later, Freemasons Hall in nearby Marlborough Road was also set alight. All four fires were believed to have been started deliberately using petrol. See below for more photos… (more…)
Incendiary attack at Yate Magistrates Court on 22nd May in memory of Maurico Morales by FAI – Conscience & Fury (UK)
Friday, May 23rd, 2014
Communique censored by the pacifist-judiciary of Indymedia UK:
RESPONSIBILITY CLAIM – SOLIDARITY KNOWS NO LAW
We firebombed the courthouse in central Yate, on 22nd May. 10 camping gas canisters were enough to devastate the front lobby, with a homemade napalm mixture as the detonator. We chose the early hours to avoid any injuries. Social war doesn’t sleep: at any given time, irrepressibles somewhere are awake and angry, raging against impositions of the governing system which wants us as its cogs. That night it happened to be us.
New and bigger custody centers; more restrictive laws, injunctions and “anti-social behavior” legislation; legal aid reduced to entrap the poor; phonelines for snitching; different shades of cops embedding themselves throughout the layers of society; probation schemes to reinsert convicts into the world of wage-slavery and consumerism; a whole prison-world of concrete cities and surveilled data-streams overseen by the powerful, armed with CCTV, biometrics and electronic tagging to defend their wealth and social order…
And also carrying out this authoritarian disciplining of the individual, are the courts. Enforcers of human misery, shamelessly applying laws drawn up by the upper classes, politicians and business leaders. Stamping down to subdue people who are mostly trying to find means of survival while capitalism pits all against all.
The justice system tries to pass itself off as the only protection from the very same desperation and imbalances that civilized society creates. Its real function is and has always been to protect and sanctify property and privilege above all: and to usurp free communities or individuals capacity for autonomy, retaliation or reconciliation.

Phoenix project #13 – 07/05/2014
We gave life to the Conspiracy of Black Fire with an attack carried out on 7th May 2014, two years after our anarchist comrades and brothers Nicola Gai and Alfredo Cospito shot Ansaldo Nucleare managing director Roberto Adinolfi. Our actions are dedicated to them, with love and revenge.
In the night of 7th May we placed an incendiary device on a petrol pump. Due to our inexperience the device didn’t accomplish its task of destruction through fire, but we were armed with pliers and cut off all the fuel dispensing tubes. Just a month earlier we targeted some ATMs.
We spent a great deal of time pondering on the question of informality and the possibility of giving birth to a group of action. During our discussion, among laughter and seriousness, lively debates, desires and anxiety, projects and strategies, we decided to give birth to the Conspiracy of Black Fire and wage war to the mega-machine of dominion.

Berlin: Phoenix Project #11 – Autonomous Cell “Christos Kassimis” takes responsibility for several attacks (Germany)
Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

Phoenix Project: Smoke signals from Berlin
“The fire comes into your cities, into your nights. From our spirit within, we carve its path towards all of you. It will warm our friends with solidarity and will ignite their zest for action. It will turn our enemy into ashes. Imprint us well in your memory. We want your heart. No matter who you are. No matter who I am either. Maybe the Conspiracy will turn both of us into ashes and at the same time fill us with life. What counts is the path we are going, and that we take this path because we have the freedom to choose. This freedom is nothing to be fought for but rather evolves in the mind. What comes afterwards is not freedom but the power over one’s own life. We do not discuss this; this is what we fight for.”(CCF)
Responsibility claim for some arsons of the past weeks in Berlin
On April 8th, 2014 we torched a vehicle of the municipal regulatory authority, and the car of a security company, near the main railway station in Berlin.
Berlin’s municipal regulatory authorities are being tasked by the normal cops to persecute administrative offenses and to keep their eyes and ears open in the everyday life of the metropolis. Small, lousy snoopers equipped with radio transmitter and pepper spray. They work, just like the cops, together with private security companies. At the main railway station, they share a parking lot designated for officials with a security firm right next to a police station.
We also take responsibility for the arson at an embassy vehicle belonging to a Greek female diplomat, on April 24th in Berlin’s district Dahlem, which is filled with villas.
Diplomatic representatives of a State are exactly the right address for fiery mailings; this rubs away their feeling of superiority and invulnerability, same as it happened recently with the German ambassador in Athens, when shots were fired at his house. The State itself is the problem, something which many fighters of sectional struggles do not take into consideration. Nazis are State; armament and nuclear technology are State; climate change and poverty are also State.
With our action we negate the State’s monopoly on violence.
Germany takes a position which promotes repression in regard to the situation of migration policies in Greece. It’s not enough for the German politics that a majority of the refugees who arrive in Greece end up in concentration camps and that they are hunted and killed by Nazis, with or without uniform. The German politicians consider the few ones, who manage to cross the Greek border alive, as a threat to their rich white world. So, for example, the former German Minister of the Interior, Friedrich, demands stronger border controls and tougher action against those who, because of their home’s exploitation by Western societies, are forced to escape war, hunger and repression. The practical support of this mass murder that takes place at European borders is visible to everyone when Germany’s detectives of the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) are stationed in Greek airports, in order to pass their knowledge in Racial Profiling on to their Greek colleagues. The German governmental apparatus has supported the murders at European borders not only by sending personnel but also by pressing towards agreements at the European level, such as the Dublin II regulation.
On August 10th, 2013 a riot broke out in Amygdaleza, a concentration camp which is located 25km north of Athens, where migrants are held captive by the Greek State. The prisoners set their mattresses and cells on fire to protest against the conditions in the camp, guards were attacked, and many migrants tried to break out of the prison —about ten prisoners temporarily escaped.
Solidarity to prisoners
We greet the prisoners Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, Dimitris Politis, Yannis Michailidis, Nikos Romanos, who were arrested on February 1st, 2013, accused of double robbery in Velventos, Kozani.
Our solidarity also goes out to Fivos Harisis, Argyris Ntalios, Yannis Naxakis and Grigoris Sarafoudis, who were arrested for the same case in Nea Filadelfeia, Athens.
Force and strength to our brothers and our sister, Damiano Bolano, Haris Hadjimihelakis, Giorgos Polydoros, Panagiotis Argyrou, Theofilos Mavropoulos, Christos Tsakalos, Giorgos Nikolopoulos, Michalis Nikolopoulos and Olga Ekonomidou.
Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar
Freedom for all prisoners!
In memory of Sebastián Oversluij, who fell in battle against the capitalist system. Freedom for Hermes González and Alfonso Alvial. Freedom for Tamara Sol!
Strength, force and courage to all people who are fighting. For all the migrants that set off to break through Fortress Europe. All those who have fallen. All the unnamed. All those who fight the pigs in the streets of Athens.
Against the construct of borders and nations. Against prisons! For freedom! For anarchy!
Autonomous Cell “Christos Kassimis”
Christos Kassimis [member of the Revolutionary People’s Struggle (ELA)] was killed by cops in Athens, during an attempted attack on the German company AEG on the 20th of October 1977. The action was in response to the murder of prisoners [three members of the RAF] in Stammheim.
Translators’ notes:  we translated the words from German as best we could, however the exact origin of this quotation is unknown to us;  for the case of Velventos, Fivos Harisis and Argyris Ntalios (not all four of them);  apparently the name of Gerasimos Tsakalos was inadvertently omitted.
Night-time stalking of Bristol fascists – EDL Chris Pugh’s car vandalised and fascist hang-out Apple Tree pub smashed (UK)
Tuesday, April 29th, 2014
325 receives and transmits:
Some local fascist haunts have been hunted down in our areas. This is to combat continuing fascist stirrings like racist assaults, intimidation and graffiti here in Bristol* and elsewhere. The far-right will be fought in the daytime like in Brighton last Sunday, or at night when we choose.
EDL Fascist Chris Pugh plays as DJ around Bristol pubs under the name of The Last Resort, and runs a retro shop under the same name on the Wells Road. His street stall in St.Nicholas market ceased trading after being publicly paintbombed on a Saturday by anti-fascists. His shop is a few minutes from his house in Knowle West (47 Salcombe Rd), the stomping ground of his youth. So, on the night of Tuesday 15th April, all four tyres were punctured on his Grey Jaguar car, and body work scratched. It’s the least we can do for him right now.
Two days later, at the Apple Tree pub in Philips street, off Bedminister parade, two downstairs windows and one upstairs were smashed at sunrise. The pub is a consecutive meeting place of EDL organisers, such as Mickey Bayliss, who organised the EDL demo in central Bristol last year as their South-West co-ordinator.
Attack the racists and fascists, history has always proved that they’ll be the allies of the bosses, patriarchs and the state, pretending to speak for the white underdog. It’s a mistake to let them fester.
Lastly, across the channel in Calais fascists have fallen back for the moment after an international call-out to fight their repeated attacks on squats and migrants, though the bigger enemy remains the authorities and the state.
Solidarity to Damien Camelio also in France doing time for burning buildings used by the army, the prison service, National Front, and calling to arms against repression in all forms.

Tuesday, April 8th, 2014
During the night of February 14th we, the silent shadows, sneaked into the tree cutters camp.
It was 3 o’clock in the night, but the workers were awake. They were going back-and-forth around the encampment, one quarry excavator was raping Nature while guards were watching TVs on their posts drinking beer. In our experience the camp was pretty large: 6-7 living sheds, several sheds for tools, 2 passenger cars, 3 excavators and 1 grader. Having sneaked between sheds and vehicles, we selected two excavators that looked as the most recent addition to local park (i.e., their loss will be most expensive). After that we followed routine procedure: put some rags around engine parts and oil pumps, soaked them with gasoline, etc. After we left the area, we tarried for some time to enjoy the night view. Both excavators were trailing huge columns of smoke into the air. We establish the damage done at around 6-8 million rubles (approx. 200 000 USD).
We hope this act will slow down operations in this quarry. The area already boasts several abandoned quarries. Since our initial recon in this district large tracts of wood were drained and cut in order to clear up space for more quarry works. The sand excavated in here is used for future development projects that do not take Nature or clean air into account.
We wish best of luck to all of you. Keep that fire burning.

1,000 hours of theory equal 1 minute of action.
In the early morning hours of Friday, March 21st, 2014, we attacked the tax office of the Nea Ionia district in the city of Volos. We chose to torch the tax archives, and poured records with gasoline and lit them on fire. Our goal was to expand the flames throughout the whole of the building, but due to lack of oxygen the fire didn’t spread. Next time we’ll be more cautious.
- The reasons why we chose to target the tax office are self-evident. Our only debt to the main predatory mechanism of the State is its destruction.
- Action replaces tears.
- We take action to overcome our fears.
- We will not wait for any condition to become ripe.
- We will not wait for any society to wake up.
- We will not wait for any ‘revolutionary’ to revolutionize oneself.
We urge anyone who doesn’t want to live a slavish life, anyone who consciously opposes this aging world, to let go of the miseries and ideologized inactivity, and act aggressively.
Let us be the ones who start to determine the current event agenda.

On Saturday [1 March 2014] the Department of Corrections Office in Seattle was paint bombed and had graffiti written on it with the message, “Destroy All Prisons (A) FTP (A)”. The office is a site of the prison society we all live in. The grand jury in Seattle has for the last year and a half embodied that prison society we struggle against. This action is meant as a small gesture against that repression and in solidarity with those who struggle against it. Fuck the DA, the FBI, and the grand jury.

While we lit a cold and dark night with a pile of iron, the rising flames could be seen far from the site and aside from the pleasure that has given us, the action was taken in the service of eco-vandalism lobby which has a name that’s never been heard.
On Thursday, February 20th, in Poyraz rural regions of Anatolian part of Istanbul, we attacked an excavator which is left to sleep on the verge of excavating the nature and we spray painted several locations around the site with the signs of ‘ELF-FAI/IRF’. While this nature killer became unusable with a simple, time-set, handmade incendiary device, the message we wanted to give was clear: “If you build it, we will burn and destroy it!”.
Our major motivations for this action are;
We wanted to emphasize that the definitive attack against the dictatorship which legitimizes itself by conducting ecocide projects such as ’3. Bosphorus Bridge’ and ‘Canal Istanbul’, has to be manifested no more relying on stereotypes liberal-pacifist “consciousness raising campaigns” and “judicial process”. These kind of organizations are just trying to delay what is unavoidable and to hinder the reasonable eco-defense ground against current ecological destruction. Trying to get a positive decision from the State’s justice system which is actually the contractor of ecocides, they help weakening the anger by channeling it to polls or social media shares. (more…)

We know that this plan only means more police and unaffordable housing.
We offer this small gesture of solidarity to the ZAD, the No TAV movement, and the occupation of the Hambach Forest. We would also like to send strength to those affected by increased surveillance or repression the new developments have brought to Atlanta.
Our action was very simple to perform. It did not take long to plan or to enact and we found all of the materials on the side of the road. We do not believe that an accumulation of “actions” makes a revolution, but we wanted to give encouragment to the current and future participants of revolutionary struggles. Onward, strong hearts!

Anarchist-Hooligans strike again…
Too many city-slickers playing at being country folk, driving around in status symbols, in a dream where the fuel never runs out, “oh it’s such a stress parking the landie, when I do the school run” why not get a smaller car, ride bikes, bus it, use your legs or even better have a lobotomy…
In the middle of December last year in Bristol, Sneyd park & Bathwick hill area of Bath, somewhere between 20-25 4×4′s/service utility vehicles had the air removed from their front tyres via several puncture wounds, there wasn’t a splash of mud on any of them! If we embrace a wide array of the aspects of anarchy then we can possibly feel healthier, more rounded & balanced as a whole within our own being, attempting to address the issues as best one see’s fit realising you can’t just pick & choose the nice bits that might neatly line-up with what one’s decided is comfortable. To acknowledge the challenge to take up & carry the torch that one extra mile, firstly for ourselves & our close friends, remembering out there the glowing spirits that flicker & know in themselves they too have to kick themselves out of this shit that we are all in, seeing that generally things are a little rough around the edges but exciting at times & on some days even potentially dangerous.

The night before last night we attacked the electronic communication net in Berlin (Germany). Our act of sabotage took place at a Vodafone radio tower and is meant as a symbol against total surveillance by governments, secret services and transnational corporations. Vodafone was chosen because it is eagerly engaged in cooperating with the british secret service GCHQ. GCHQ cooperates with the american secret service NSA. And NSA in turn cooperates with german secret service BND. Secret services collect patterns of normality and compare particular behaviours in order to find out if you could plan something deviant before you know it yourself. The collaborations of secret service industry and the industry’s secret services secure the conditions of profit and power for both of them.
For us, the careless use of electronic devices and internet applications is problematic: Every move can be digitalized and technology is not neutral. We don’t know how an emancipatory development of communication looks like, but we believe it would work in a different way and we have to find out together. In the meantime, we encourage to block infrastructure and bring it to a halt – against the stream of exploitation and surveillance, against a society based on destruction of human and nature.
Sabotage of the surveillance industry and infrastructures of exploitation!
Blind secret services!
Freedom of Movement and asylum for Edward Snowden and everybody else – No border, no nation!
Freedom for Chelsea Manning!

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.
