Santiago: Barricades and Clashes 44 Years Since the Military Coup (Chile)

Monday, September 18th, 2017

(13.09.17)

BARRICADES OUTSIDE THE UNIVERSITY OF CHILE FACULTY OF SOCIAL SCIENCES

Encapuchadxs (hooded ones) raised barricades and clashed with FF.EE (Carabineros Special Forces) in the vicinity of the University of Chile (FASCO) in commemoration of the murdered and disappeared during the civil-military dictatorship.

Leaflet found at the scene:

Today we do not simply commemorate our fallen from the dictatorship, we also claim their forms of struggle and organization that serve as an example of subversion against capital, the state and its repressive apparatus.

44 years on from the harshest episode in our history, we rise as the children and grandchildren of those who were persecuted and killed during the dictatorship.

With their same conviction, we promise to never forget their actions, which will live on in the rebellious and combative memory of every revolutionary.

Montreal – Arson of two luxury cars in St-Henri (Canada)

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

Inspired by the riots in Hamburg, we burned two luxury cars outside of a condo in St-Henri during the night of July 13. In a neighbourhood where people have to choose between food and rent, don’t be surprised when we set fire to your flagrant displays of class privilege.

We used a simple method: fire sticks half-covered in fire-paste. All the material can be found in a camping store. We lit the fire-paste covered end and placed it in the top corners of the car’s grill, between the headlights. We used two sticks per car. The fire is mostly invisible until plastic or motor oil catches fire, giving you time to leave unseen. Be careful: the fire can easily spread to cars parked close-by. (more…)

Thessaloniki: Arson of electrical transformer of OTE (Greece)

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

We are confronting technology to the extent that it is a tool in the hand of the bosses and capitalism, taking away our capabilities practical or not. Their target is to establish any kind of technology as crucial for each one of us, to enslave each mind and body to one or the other technological means that at first sight makes our lives easier and more pleasant.

The real consequence on the other hand, is the destruction of social and human relations and of the earth and nature. All of this for the development of robust social control and making profits.

An inner part of the technological complex is telecommunications, which cause people many harmful symptoms. (more…)

Arson of telecommunications repeaters in Orbeil, Puy-de-Dôme (France)

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

Orbeil (Puy-de-Dôme), France – Summer barbecues of repeaters (22/08/2017)

As you reach to the top of the hill there’s the Great Bear right above your head. And then, below, you see the lights of Issoire, which make war on the stars in the sky. And above all, above everything, there’s a repeater next to you, which reminds you that you didn’t come to recite poetry. Light up the fire…

In the early hours of 22nd August we set fire up there on the hill. In Moidias, two repeaters that serve the telephone line from Issore to Brioude and the broadcasting of many radio frequencies went up in flames. As we couldn’t turn off the city lights, at least we switched off the smartphones .
Because this world is too narrow, it aims at the normalization, control, sterilization and digitalization of any individuality. Because we wanted to give ourselves a breath of air, feel alive rather than suffocate. True, this desire for destruction could have been satisfied with an attack on Red Cross premises, a breeding farm or a migrant detention centre. We attack so as not to be yet another architect of power’s structures. We attack for immediate pleasure and not for a hypothetical radiant future.

As pointed out in other claims, technology – which keeps us immobile and colonizes our imagination – is one of the pillars of civilization. If we agree with this, we cannot be satisfied with a mere exchange of ideas. So we looked for sensitive points on which to act. By burning repeaters, we not only aim at inflicting the greatest damage on the promoters of technological prosthesis. It’s a way of communicating, interacting, sabotaging civilization. (more…)

Hamburg G20 prisoners soli-demo in Amsterdam (Germany, Netherlands)

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

From Amsterdam to Hamburg. On Thursday 31st August a solidarity demo took place in Amsterdam. It was not only against the G20 but also against the recent censorship of Indymedia in Germany. We hope you can spread the news amongst our friends.

A 21-year old person from Amsterdam has been convicted to two year and seven months in prison. He is accused of having thrown two empty beer bottles at the police after hundreds of riot police blocked and attacked the “Welcome to Hell” demonstration on the evening before the G20 summit in Hamburg last July (see here: https://vimeo.com/224524911).

Sacramento Nazi’s Truck Torched (USA)

Wednesday, August 23rd, 2017

In the early morning on August 16th Clint Durnay’s truck, which is shrouded in white supremacist and neo-fascist imagery, was torched. this golden state skinhead (gss) member was attacked at his home: 5032 kenneth ave., fair oaks , ca. many hours later it was confirmed that there was extensive damage to his truck.

This attack is in direct response to June 26th and the rising fascist tide in the united states.

At the state capitol in Sacramento, ca on june 26th, 2016 approximately 20 gss and traditionalist workers party (twp) members had their rally shut down by hundreds of brave individuals who showed up to confront and halt white supremacy head on. frustrated at the shut down of their rally, gss and twp advanced upon the anti-fascist protesters and violently attacked them with knives, metal rods, and wooden poles. this vicious attack sent 9 anti-fascist individuals to the hospital many of whom were in critical condition. the entirety of the individuals attacked were either people of color or trans folks. this shines a light upon the exceptionally targeted act of racist and transphobic violence that it was. there are photos that clearly depict Clint Durnay attacking anti-fascists that day.

We understand June 26th wasn’t the beginning, and sadly it won’t be the end. from Sacramento to Charlottesville, it’s clear the fascist movement is growing and will stop at nothing short of murder to quell our resistance to them.

They cannot continue to attack, kill, and stifle us! We will fight back!

For a world free of fascism in all of it’s oppressive manifestations!

Love and solidarity,

Anti-nazis at night (anan)

Athens: Arson of a SKAI journalist’s car by Action Cell/Metropolis Fallen – FAI/IRF (Greece)

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

Taking responsibility – The burning of a SKAI journalist’s car

“As long as necessity is socially dreamed, dreaming will remain a social necessity. The spectacle is the bad dream of a modern society in chains and ultimately expresses nothing more than its wish for sleep. The spectacle is the guardian of that sleep. “

Guy Debord

We are taking responsibility for placing an incendiary device on G.Papahristos’ car outside his house at agios dimitrios, at dawn on 18/4.

G.Papahristos is a piece of human garbage of the journalist circles. His career is similar to others of his ilk. A political all-rounder who, in each period, is called upon to offer his services to the relevant authoritarian interests, be they political or economic, as his professional ventures, from the ‘green’ DOL to the neo-liberal SKAI, demonstrate.

Solidarity to Venezuelan people from Belarusian anarchists

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

Belarusian anarchists informed Minsk residents about struggle of the people of Venezuela – the bus stop in the сenter of the city was covered by posters, describing the ongoing protests. Anarchists are sure that that Belarusians should learn from braveness and courage of the Venezuela protesters!

Nemesis Project: Explosive / Incendiary Attack Against the National Confederation of Truck Owners by FAI-IRF (Chile)

Tuesday, August 1st, 2017

Translation by Insurrection News:

NEMESIS PROJECT ACT V

On the night of July 25, we attacked the building belonging to the National Confederation of Truck Owners of Chile, located on Almirante Barroso street in the city center of Santiago, with an explosive / incendiary device.

The National Confederation of Truck Owners of Chile is a structural link in the chain of domination and exploitation, taking an active part in freight transport and environmental looting in Chilean territory and Wallmapu.

They are one of the main beneficiaries of the IIRSA project, which has as one of its objectives the ‘improvement’ of road infrastructure for the transport of goods in the countries of South / Latin America.

They are also the first line of entrepreneurs working side by side with the Chilean state seeking to intensify the repression and police intelligence gathering in Mapuche territory, trying to stop without success the burning of trucks that is part of the autonomous Mapuche subversion in defence of its ancestral territory.

Expropriation of Bazaar supermarket chain in Exarcheia, Athens (Greece)

Monday, July 24th, 2017

https://vimeo.com/226618577

We have noticed an increasing hostility towards Bazaar supermarkets in Exarcheia. We have done some research about it. Here are some of the things we discovered.
Bazaar belongs to Veroukas Group, a shady business group with no website and no public contact details or financial info. Veroukas is one of the major business chains in Greece, with a 1,5 billion yearly turnover and 600 stores all over country, and at least 3 in Exarcheia. They claim to have a market capitalization of €35M. A little strange, since Bazaar alone had over €40M in 2014.
So we don’t know how much money they make. But we know HOW they make it:
By exploiting their providers and workers, who make a little over minimum wage in the best cases, while the company is making millionary profits.
By speculating with the prices of food, while thousands of Greek families are malnourished. (more…)

Bristol: Sabotage of nationalist politician Ben Walker’s car by Eco-anarchist vandals – FAI/IRF (UK)

Friday, July 21st, 2017

Hey Walker, we recently had a nice view of your home from the pedestrian bridge in the small hours of the morning…

… a car and work van belonging to a UKIP candidate and ex-mayor (2012) of Bradley Stoke (Bristol, UK), Ben Walker, was damaged with paint and the tires were slashed on the driveway of his home: 136 Ferndene, Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

Also done recently…

…cars at Bath Audi and Mercedes car showrooms in Peasedown, Bath (UK) had their bodywork scratched up with broken glass (about 25 vehicles). This option of sabotage was chosen over a noisy one as we didn’t want to wake the sleeping car-transporter guy who was in his cab with the curtains drawn.

With this action a warm firm hand goes out to the street fighters and black bloc who came together to trash the G20 in Hamburg, with bravery against such heavy odds, and to those spreading this fight over other German cities. Some of us are not up to the level of street combat of German cities or to go and engage with your cops, so here in the UK a few of us have been lubricating our rusty joints enough to be able to be active and show our distaste in a style we are more familiar with.

Although we may have different approaches to the same problems, we can pull together on a common thread, learn from each others qualities and mis-givings, and unite the effects of bloc and affinity group.

In the UK, through sabotage, we are trying to show others here that there is a positive path to take anger along while also putting a kick into the ribs of our pigs already low morale.

(Bristol,Reino Unido): Sabotaje a automóvil del político nacionalista
Ben Walker, por Vándalxs Eco-anárquicxs-FAI/FRI


[Traducido por Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras desde 325nostate]

21 de julio de 2017

Hey Walker, recientemente tuvimos una bonita vista de su casa desde el
puente peatonal en las pequeñas horas de la mañana…
… un coche y una furgoneta pertenecientes a un candidato del UKIP y al
ex alcalde de Bradley Stoke (Bristol, Reino Unido), Ben Walker, resultó
dañado con pintura y los neumáticos fueron cortados en el camino de su
casa: 136 Ferndene, Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

También hecho recientemente …

… automóviles de Bath Audi y Mercedes en salas de exhibición quedaron
con su carrocería arañada con cristales rotos (unos 25 vehículos). Esta
opción de sabotaje fue escogida sobre alguna otra ruidosa, ya que no
queríamos que se despertara al tipo que transporta los automóviles y que
dormía en su cabina.

Con esta acción, una mano firme y cálida se dirige a lxs luchadorxs
callejerxs y al bloque negro que se reunió para destrozar al G20 en
Hamburgo, con valentía ante tan pesadas probabilidades, y a lxs que
extendieron esta lucha por otras ciudades alemanas. Algunxs de nosotrxs
no estamos a la altura del combate callejero de las ciudades alemanas o
para ir a enganchar con sus policías, así que aquí en el Reino Unido
algunxs de nosotrxs lubricamos nuestras articulaciones oxidadas lo
suficiente como para ser capaces de estar activxs y mostrar nuestro
repudio en un estilo con el que estamos más familiarizados.

Aunque podamos tener enfoques diferentes a los mismos problemas, podemos
unirnos en un hilo común, aprender de las cualidades y desajustes de
cada unx, y unir los efectos del bloque y el grupo de afinidad.

En el Reino Unido, a través del sabotaje, estamos tratando de mostrar a
otrxs aquí que hay un camino positivo para desplegar la rabia, asi como
también dar una patada en las costillas de los ya desmoralizados
bastardos.

cualquier conflicto es interrumpir las infraestructuras de comunicación

Explosive Attack Against EXXON (Mexico)

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

After midnight…

IN RESPONSE to the call for action in solidarity with the anarchists of the Aachen case, on April 16, 2017, at approximately 01:30AM we placed an explosive device that detonated at the facilities of the oil company EXXON in Mexico City, located at North 59, Vallejo Industrial Colony.

EXXON is an oil and chemical corporation based in Texas, USA which constitutes in itself a complete criminal, murderous, genocidal, ecocidal state. It’s long and devastating history has spared no bloodshed with death, torture and exploitation wherever it’s tentacles reach. And then, when the cries of the massacres they cause are silent, they dig the graves with exactly the same machines they use to suck the sweat of the Earth and human beings.

But now it is their turn. Take our offering of hatred and rage! …Because nobody is untouchable! Because we are not intimidated by the heavy silence that you have imposed on your crimes based on fear and violence, and we are not intimidated by the premiere of your Secretary of State… (more…)

Bomb attack against a bank in solidarity with imprisoned comrades in Germany (Mexico)

Monday, April 24th, 2017

Responding to the international call for actions in solidarity with the compañerxs accused of robbery in Aachen, Germany, we placed an explosive device with a little more than one kilo of black powder at a Citibanamex branch located on Eje 10 [in Mexico City] at 2:30am on April 20.

We repeated the action carried out a couple months ago by compañerxs from the Night Cats and Evil Sorcerers Incendiary Cell. Upon seeing they’d rebuilt the branch after the compas’ attack, we decided to help them redecorate it. (more…)

Liege: The Beauty of a Burning Police Station (Belgium)

Friday, April 21st, 2017

We are not soldiers.
We are criminals.
We have no fatherland, no higher cause, we do not follow any directions other than those of ourselves.

On the other hand, we are fighting.
To find our lives, explore our freedoms.

We fight the misery of our lives, the oppression of morals, and the grids that imprison us.

On the night of April 18, we set fire to a police station in Liège (Belgium). It was completely destroyed, devastated by the flames.

We dedicate this action to the imprisoned comrades who are accused of bank robbery in Aachen.

Determination and courage!

Our thoughts are also with the Montreuil compa and Damien, still imprisoned in Fleury.
Never give up!

A greeting to all those who conspire.

With violence, love and joy.
Always at war.

Informer’s house vandalised along with Police Horse Transporters by Eco-anarchist vandals – FAI/IRF (UK)

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

18th April – we thought it long overdue that ‘Julie’, a police informer in Yatton, near Bristol, received a home visit to remind her that we do not forget nor forgive. Badger stayed at Julie’s house after being invited there by her when he was first on the run. Badger is wanted for the smashing of the Bristol Post newspaper offices in 2011 and the burning of a transmitter. As a minimum gesture of solidarity to wanted anarchist Badger, we painted “snitch” there and sabotaged her vehicle. We hope she crashes and is paralysed. Julie lives at 3 Barberry Farm Road where she resides with her partner and children. An older washed-out queer peace activist type of person, but actually just a disgusting betrayer and one who abused the trust put in her. Julie thought she could save herself from police attention by informing, but found that the pigs wanted more. So she even gave information on other people who came to visit Badger at her place and police were sure to send a forensic team to collect DNA. Snitch, you will be remembered as one more reactionary who deserves to live in misery. We hope the cancer that it is in your body kills you and we hope to make your last days as unhappy as possible. Die knowing you are hated. More activists (who we haven’t forgotten about either) protected this snitch at the time of her informing, preventing those hunted from knowing that Julie had betrayed Badger and his friends. Millions of your pathetic activist lives add up to the sum total of fuck-all compared to the indomitable spirit of Badger.

Not very far away from Julie’s house is Davis Lane, Clevedon, where mounted police are located with a stadium and next to this is a police specialist operations centre. We punctured the tyres on four horse transport vehicles and sprayed “Flat, Ha Ha!” on the sides. So much for security.

Stay free Badger – Fuck the Police

Solidarity to anarchist prisoners and those on the run.
