Sabotaje a tienda de animales – Por un Diciembre Negro (Chile)

December 14th, 2015

Desde el accionar anárquico y confrontacional a toda forma de
dominación, es que nos dirigimos en sigilo la tarde-noche de este sábado
12 a la tienda “Premium Pet” ubicada en Toesca 1844, pleno centro de
Santiago y con sencillos materiales(1) saboteamos los candados para que
los dueños de este “supuesto trabajo” les quede en la cabeza que hay
sujetos que no quieren y no respetan la comercialización de humillación,
sufrimiento y muerte de animales. Read the rest of this entry »

Crete: Incendiary attack against Armed Forces Officers Club in Rethymno (Greece)

December 14th, 2015

“I would also point out that arson
is the least-solved crime in the United States,
and that gasoline is really cheap, and matches are free.”

Sean Swain, longterm anarchist prisoner;
excerpt from his text for Black December

On Saturday night, early Sunday December 13th, we chose to carry out an incendiary attack against the military officers club in Rethymno. This act comes as a response to the call of incarcerated comrades for a Black December. We want our act to complement the mosaic of direct actions taking place during the current month, in the frame of informal coordination of insurrectionary anarchy, at both local and international levels. To us it’s evident that those in anarchy’s milieu are drawn to opposite poles; the aged reformist pole and the insurrectionary one. So, naturally, we have “allied” with those who choose to walk on the path of fire, attack and direct action.

As regards the selected target, we want to point out that the role of the army is none other than repressing (we are aware that the army plays a decisive role in repressing migrants and refugees at Evros and the islands), cultivating a national esprit among executioners-citizens who are eager to swallow any nationalistic propaganda, and making sure the Greek military staff have excellent cooperation with their colleagues at NATO. For all the above and even more reasons, we chose to bring the fire there where they peacefully sleep and eat. We will always be against the medals awarded by the State to its minions.

We send our comradely greetings to all incarcerated comrades of the R.O. Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (CCF), to the five anarchist prisoners of the Network of Imprisoned Fighters (DAK) who chose to “answer” the call, to incarcerated comrades abroad, and all comrades of insurrectionary anarchy that have already attacked or prepare to attack.

The paths of fire and insurgency bring those on the outside closer to the comrades inside the walls… We burn the rottenness of inaction and reformism with fire…

Black December is just the beginning…

Rethymno 2015

Lima: Accion – Diciembre Negro (Peru)

December 14th, 2015

Llamado a la insurrección antiautoritaria.

Por un diciembre negro con nuestros caidos en la memoria.

Saludos. Mediante este comunicado nos presentamos como grupo en la forma que creemos mas indicada (nuestras acciones son lo que importa, no nuestros rostros), también invitamos a combatir el letargo practicando la insurrección antiautoritaria y a nutrirnos de ella.

Material incendiario.

Hace unas semanas con unos objetos envueltos en llamas bloqueamos una autopista en Lima y dejamos algunos mensajes. El motivo fue atacar el funcionamiento del orden impuesto por el Poder. No pedimos reformas, no pedimos jefes mas “buenitos”, no pedimos gobernantes que roben o que hagan obras, no pedimos trabajo o aumento si no su abolición.

Con esta acción apoyamos la ofensiva anarquista alrededor del mundo, en especial el DICIEMBRE NEGRO (venganza por los asesinatos de los companieros Alexandros Grigoropulos y Sebastian Oversluij).

Asimismo bienvenidx sea quien asista al llamado y rompa el papel de espectador. Te afecta a ti, a mí y a los que se oponen a este mundo de dominación consciente o inconscientemente.

Libertad a lxs anarquistas presxs.

Viva la propaganda pro el hecho.

Libertad a todos los animales.

Saludos a los miembros de las Celulas del fuego, Monica Caballero y Fransisco Solar.

Apoyo total a quienes no esperan la rebelion de las masas para salir a atacar.

Diciembre Negro/Angry presente!: A dos años desde que un guerrero pasó a ser estrella negra iluminando las noches de la anarquía (Chile)

December 14th, 2015

Diciembre Negro/Angry presente!: A dos años desde que un guerrero pasó a
ser estrella negra iluminando las noches de la anarquía.

Hace dos años, el 11 de diciembre de 2013, el compañero Sebastián Angry
Oversluij fue abatido por las balas de un defensor del capital mientras
intentaba expropiar un banco. Con el corazón lleno de recuerdos en este
Diciembre Negro queremos nuevamente compartir algunos sentires y
reflexiones sobre la muerte y la memoria.

No es fácil asumir la muerte de un compañerx. Pero todo continua!

Nuestra lucha a muerte con el poder la vivimos como una guerra, pero en
ella cada compañerx es valiosx y no podemos normalizar la pérdida de
seres irreemplazables que asumieron la lucha anárquica como camino de
vida. Vidas como las nuestras, con ideas como las nuestras, con
prácticas como las nuestras. Por eso es para nosotrxs inevitable
preguntarnos a nosotrxs mismos cada día ¿Qué hicimos hoy en relación a
nuestrx compañerx muertx? ¿Sacamos alguna propaganda o llevamos su
nombre y las ideas que nos conectan a las calles? Read the rest of this entry »

Diciembre Negro: Dos años sin el Angry … (Chile)

December 12th, 2015

Dos años ya sin el compa Angry. Dos años sin compartir palabras, experiencias, discrepancias, sonrisas, abrazos y complicidades en revuelta.

Ese 11 de diciembre algunxs se enteraron por el noticiario del mediodía, otrxs por la llamada de un/unx compa cercanx. Algunxs estaban reunidxs planificando alguna acción y lloraron abrazadxs, otrxs estaban en medio de sus actividades cotidianas y lo hicieron solxs y en silencio.

Ya son dos años y la partida de un/unx compañerx nunca es algo que termine de doler, pero en la guerra contínua contra el poder hemos aprendido el significado de la memoria insurrecta: recordar a nuestrxs compañerxs muertxs no solo desde el dolor sino que ante todo desde el fuego imperecedero de la vida en revuelta de un/x enemigx declaradx de la dominación.

Hoy del compa Angry nos quedan sus acciones, sus ideas y posiciones de vida y de lucha contra toda autoridad, plasmadas en canciones, dibujos, entrevistas, poemas y acciones. Junto a esto, no olvidamos ni silenciamos el hecho de que el compañero fue abatido empuñando un arma en medio de una expropiación bancaria.

Hemos estado actualizando nuestro blog con aportes de compañerxs que envían textos, afiches, transcripciones de canciones y otras cosas. Éste funciona como archivo, registro y memoria en torno al compañero. Continuaremos actualizándolo con gestos de memoria y combate ocurridos durante 2015, reiterando la invitación a que lxs compañerxs nos envíen sus aporten para que todxs seamos partícipes de esta construcción de memoria antiautoritaria, insurrecta e iconoclasta que cobra real sentido cuando continuamos la lucha que nos hermana con nuestrxs compas muertxs, presxs y clandestinxs.

¡Nunca de rodillas!

¡La revuelta germina, la insurrección nunca termina!

'My first experiences in Istanbul' by Abu Al Braa, Syrian refugee (Turkey)

December 12th, 2015

24/11/2015

MY FIRST EXPERIENCES IN ISTANBUL

THE LIFE OF A SYRIAN REFUGEE IN TURKEY HAS NO VALUE

It happens that the conditions inside the refugee camps in Syria are very very bad. Even the simplest needs of life cannot be satisfied since there is no clean water or good food or cloth to protect us from the winter. There is not enough heat inside the nylon tents where 10 or more people live. The situation is worsening every day.

That’s the reason why they decided to seek shelter elsewhere and leave the refugee camps in Syria. So they decided to enter into Turkish territory as refugees, believing that the living conditions in Turkey where better. But unfortunately it was not for the best but for the worst. Because in Turkey they don’t have the most basic human rights, just because they are refugees and not tourists. Turkish factory owners started to exploit them, taking advantage of their situation of extreme need for a piece of bread. This is how the Syrian worker in Turkey can work up to 16 hours a day and most of the days of the week in exchange for a piece of bread and the house rent.

Their wage is less than that of the Turkish worker. They have no health insurance to be covered from accidents. To make things worst the unions don’t organize them.

The factory owners take advantage of this and use the government and the police. The refugees are arbitrary detained.

Here in Turkey, in Istanbul, we saw with our own eyes what happened with 2 young Syrian refugees who were detained under the bogus charge of committing theft. They spent 40 days in prison suffering beatings, tortures, humiliation and starvation. They lived the brutality of the Turkish police.

This is how Turkey receives the Syrian refugees.

Report from a Correspondent of the 'Brigade León Sedov' (Syria)

December 12th, 2015

Correspondent in Syria – 7 November of 2015

The true cause of the Syrian genocide: A civil war of exploiters and plunderers of Syria against the Syrian people, which has already been held for 4 years, to punish and to massacre the hungry who fight for bread.

As winter arrives, the price of the dollar increases, wage sinks and millions are without a job and become refugees…

The bombs continue to fall on us… but resistance does not surrender

EITHER WE DIE OF HUNGER OR FIGHT TO LIVE

Thus it was from 2011, when we, the oppressed and exploited rebelled for bread and freedom.

From the Syrian resistance, Declaration of the Brigade Leon Sedov

Little by little the autumn cold is paving way to the harsh winter in a Syria massacred by the holy alliance between Putin, the Ayatollahs, Hezbollah, and Bashar, blessed by the Pope and under Obama’s orders.

However we are facing not only bombs from NATO, Russia and Bashar which never cease to fall on our heads and those of our families; now also the scourge of a harsh winter is looming, aggravated by the sharp shortage of food, the high cost of living that has been imposed today in our cities and towns -reduced almost to rubble- and a total or partial power failure and the scarce provision of something elemental as it is the drinking water and water for hygiene and irrigation.

Texto de compañeras en prisión a 5 años del asesinato de 81 presos en la cárcel de San Miguel (Chile)

December 11th, 2015

A 5 años del asesinato de 81 cabrxs en una prisión del Estado Chileno
(San Miguel).

Hoy nos parece necesario transmitir nuestros pensamientos y sentires
para combatir la prisión y el olvido hoy desde nuestra realidad.

Día a día las prisiones ejecutan el asesinato de millones de seres en el
mundo. Vivir dentro de las jaulas de la humanidad significa tortura
constante. La institución carcelaria como una estructura social, mental,
y física concreta el propósito del Estado de mantener su actual sistema
de dominación, legitimando a través de ella la lógica del poder, en la
cual el Estado se alza como protector de una ciudadanía pasiva que
contribuye en su mantención y existencia sin jamás cuestionarla.

No hay tiempo para excusas ni pausas – Por un Diciembre Negro

Queremos la destrucción de la sociedad, ustedes lo quieren reformar,
reformulan viejos valores que han de cegar, manipulan los sentimientos y
forma de luchar, intentan homogenizar, no aceptáremos más, en guerra me
he declarado!!

Desde Chile saludamos la iniciativa convocada desde la prisión por lxs
compañerxs anarquistas Nikos Romanos y Panagiotis Argirou, alegremente y
en actitud de combate -fiel reflejo de este ataque- nos hacemos parte de
este Diciembre Negro, como también a la memoria insurrecta del compañero

Berlin: Incendiary action against a Suzuki dealership for Black December (Germany)

December 11th, 2015

viva Alexis 06.12.2008

7 years ago an anarchist rebellion began in Greece which then spread internationally and still continues. Despite numerous attempts to torture and kill our comrades around the world we have refused to be intimidated and the state repression has only made us stronger.

In the context of Black December we torched two vehicles at a Suzuki dealership hoping that the fire would illuminate the building. Suzuki regularly supply the Greek state with new vehicles so they can torture better such as those used for counterinsurgency by Delta squad.

Suzuki motorcycles are used by these minions of the recently reappointed Greek regime against it’s population in the field.

We dedicate our action to Alexandros Grigoropoulos who was murdered in Exarcheia on the night of December 6, 2008.

We are aware of the purely symbolic nature of our action and are also aware that in the metropoles these actions are hardly noticed, however, we hope that the few who did notice imitate us and share our destructive intentions by launching their own operations to attack the system.

There are always plenty of reasons at any time to unleash destructive intention and attack hated (un-)state institutions and their servants.

These years of lethargy should have been taken advantage of so that we could regroup and discuss new methods of direct action.

for a Black December

Freedom for all prisoners of the uprising worldwide

Announcing Black Seed Issue #4 (USA)

December 10th, 2015

From Black Seed:

In This Issue:

* The End of the World?
* Activism and the Green Left
* An Introduction to the Anthropecene
* Interviews with Dominique & Knowing the Land is Resistance
* The Aftermath of the Katrina Disaster
* Anarcho-Primitivism and Green Platonism
* Nihilist Animism
* Reviews & More…

Editorial: Is the End of the World Upon us?

There are plenty of signs that would lead us to believe that this is the case. In
this issue we focus on natural catastrophies, both the incredibly dangerous ways
they’re minimized by government agencies and popular media, as well as our total
lack of collective responsibility, demonstrated by our increasing consumption of
finite resources. Our world has gone mad with profit-for-the-very-few and the
political and social consequences of a world with as great a gap in income levels as
there has ever been are dangerous. How will the next economic crash look compared to the 1930s?

Will it take another war to end the next one? Can we survive such a war?
Finally, is the end of the world visible in how we allow ourselves to be treated by
the State? If Black Lives Matter has taught us anything it is that the human
capacity to objectify and destroy other humans is as high today as it has ever been
and that the rhetoric is even more sophisticated (and not) and even less forgiving.
If the end of the world is a measurable event there is plenty of evidence that the
meter for it is at a near high. Read the rest of this entry »

Osman Evcan on Hunger Strike: Anarchists and animal liberationists went to Kandıra F type prison (Turkey)

December 9th, 2015

From ABC Istanbul:

Anarchists and animal liberationists went to Kandıra F type prison, Osman Evcan is on hunger strike since 10th November with various demands. Also Osman Evcan’s cellmate Hasan Çınar started indefinite hunger strike 3 days ago to support Osman Evcan. On 5th December we went in front of Kandıra F Type Prison with our flags, banners, slogans, drums and torches to show solidarity with Vegan anarchist prisoner Osman Evcan. Our voices passed over the thick walls, and we brought hope to our comrade. Osman is refusing to eat with his own will, using his body, his only weapon to fight. He is resisting and becoming the justice himself. We screamed out loud for the animals, for the World and people,
for the freedom of the prisoners:

Fire to the prisons!
Demolish the prisons, freedom to prisoners!

We made this demo happen to show that we are not scared of the chains of the government capturing people, animals and earth. Our fight will continue against the systems will to include us to its decay.

Everyone who is fighting to abolish oppression is a freedom fighter. We will continue our struggle until the political isolation of Osman Evcan (who is supporting total freedom, and who is fighting against repression and torture for his anarchist ideals) are over. Prison systems are coffins built to control the majority, and to pacify masses for the minorities interest.

Freedom for Osman Evcan!

Until all cages and prisons are destroyed!

ABC İSTANBUL

In Turkish.

So far there were solidarity actions in Moscow, Nantes and Tbilisi. In Tbilisi there was a protest in front of the Turkish consulate. 1 & 2

A stand opened in İzmir with the name “maneuver against speciesism”. Also in İzmir flyers were distributed to inform people about Osman Evcan’s hunger strike. And a banner was hanged saying “Vegan food for Osman Evcan”. 1 & 2

Incendiary attack by Alexandros Grigoropoulos Cell / FAI in Athens (Greece)

December 9th, 2015

via ContraInfo:

In the fiery craters of our inner volcanoes, made with the lava of emotion and the fire of passion, we’ve fed our lust for life… And to Society that wanted to impose its laws and its morals on us, we will firmly respond with our “no,” while all others repeat their cowardly “yes.”(Enzo Martucci)

In the early hours of Friday December 4th [in Lycabettus area in Athens], we approached the house of the high priest of corruption, and former Minister of PASOK party, Kostas Laliotis and placed incendiary devices at his home entrance and his car.

As has rightly been said, the responsibilities of those who have served in administration centres of the capitalist machine can neither be forgotten nor retire.

Kostas Laliotis has been one of the most corrupt politicians following the metapolitefsi [transitional period after the fall of the Greek military junta]; his name and trajectory are linked to greed, deception, scheming, interwoven interests and arrogance, all of which are basic and integral characteristics of puppets staffing the political personnel of capitalist domination.

Maggots like Kostas Laliotis and his likes should be beaten or shot; they should see their houses burn, and live their miserable and crappy life in fear.

The fires of anarchist insurgency that lit at the house of a powerful former state official of the establishment was a contribution to the call for a Black December, which is spreading inside and outside the prisons all over the world, creating a multifaceted insurrectionary anarchist front that, having informal coordination, the acceptance of multiformity and the lasting anarchist insurgency as tools, crystallises the prospect of a generalised anarchist offensive against the world of Power.

Our captive comrades Nikos Romanos and Panagiotis Argirou have put an idea on the table of anarchist dialectics. They have proposed an idea relating to a theme any of us could set at the edge of a month of coordinated actions – actions originating from the entire spectrum of anarchist practices, from public gestures to guerrilla actions.

It is a proposal that opted to set the seven years since the assassination of comrade Alexandros Grigoropoulos as a theme, so as to test an experimentation of an informal coordination of multiform anarchist action in practice.

Those who have the appropriate analytical tools understand that it is a proposal concerning any anarchist individuality or collectivity that’s not clinging to theoretical patterns or immersed in apathy and reformism.

This is also why the kneelers of petty politics and professional search of disagreements do not lose the opportunity to shoot the arrows of their slanderous criticism once again.

But, as much as the “official” anarchist circles of cafes and gossip want to engage in mudslinging and slander, they cannot hide their discontent with the fact that the apathy which permanently pervades them is revealed in the clearest way.

Now, leaving aside those skilled in political speculation, let us talk about the essence of this proposal.

We believe anarchy must pose a real threat to the State, and to do this, anarchy needs to stay away from vanguards, leaderships, press offices, away from the logics of political cleansing and expulsions.

Informal organising doesn’t need to arise from agreements in charters and proclaimed positions one has to embrace. In our anarchy, every individual and every group can contribute to a theme, a campaign, a strategy by synchronising and coordinating their action, irrespective of whether they share common political backgrounds.

To evolve spontaneity, which often prevails in the anarchist milieu, does not mean anarchy has to turn into a party; all that is needed for the feasibility of a formulation of strategies and actions chosen to be put in motion is a will to act and communicate with other comrades.

For we love the kind of anarchy that travels through the streets of fire, occupies space and time in the metropolises, and creates strongholds for the diffusion of anarchist theory and practice. The kind of anarchy that blows up the pillars of normality, robs our lost time, and throws the morals of this world into fire.

This kind of anarchy does not fit in the hypocritical respectabilities of this society, nor does it make concessions on its discourse or practices to be pleasing to the social majority.

Surely there’s so much to say, but what comes first is intensifying our attacks, thickening the chaotic paths of liberatory struggle.

We will be back soon

Guerrilla signals to the FAI cells who have actively supported Black December in Greece, Chile, Spain, and those currently preparing their attacks; to the comrades of the Anarchist Insurgent Movement (M.I.A.) from Brazil; to all arsonists and rioters who set fire to the symbols of domination.

Strength and solidarity to all anarchist comrades inside and outside the prisons who support Black December with texts, translations, posters, flyers, graffiti and banners that complete the mosaic of multiform anarchist action.

A hug full of affection to our brothers and sisters who are locked up in prisons in Spain, Chile, Switzerland, Italy, Mexico, Germany, the US, and elsewhere; to Mónica Caballero, Francisco Solar, Marco Camenisch, Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai, Juan Aliste, Freddy Fuentevilla and Marcelo Villarroel, Juan Flores, Guillermo Durán, Nataly Casanova, Enrique Guzmán, Thomas Meyer-Falk, Ignacio Muñoz, Tamara Sol, Michael Kimble, and all other captive comrades whom we have unwittingly forgotten to mention.

For a Black December

For the upsurge of anarchist insurgency

Freedom for those in prison cells

Incendiary attack by Sebastián Oversluij Cell / FAI in Athens (Greece)

December 9th, 2015

via ContraInfo:

Within the context of the call for a Black December action campaign, we organised and carried out a deed of direct action.

We reached the outside of a cop’s house in the district of Zografou, who’s a serving special guard at the Golden Dawn offices, and we set fire to his personal vehicle.

Such actions can easily be diffused and reproduced by comrades, and also contribute to creating a climate of fear and insecurity among the cowardly servants of legal order.

We don’t wait until repression comes knocking on our door; we locate the houses of uniformed bastards within the metropolis, and pay them a visit so as to attack them by all means.

Strength and solidarity to all our comrades around the world who intensify the Black December campaign with their actions, making informal coordination of multiform anarchist action a reality.

We organise anarchist cells of direct action!

For the anarchist offensive against the world of Power!

For a Black December!

Solidarity with anarchist prisoners and all comrades wanted by authorities!

With our dead brothers and sisters present in every moment of attack against domination!
