La discorde est une forme profonde de désaccord, un dissentiment violent qui oppose des personnes entre elles et les dresse les unes contre les autres. Ce que nous souhaitons encourager, c’est qu’elle les oppose plutôt à ce vieux-monde et à ses défenseurs, comme cela se manifeste déjà, ça et là, par de nombreux actes de révolte et d’insoumission. Il n’est pas question pour nous de jeter de l’eau sur les braises de ces révoltes, mais au contraire de jeter, comme la déesse Discordia, la pomme de discorde au milieu de cette société où les rapports marchands et répressifs semblent avoir pris le dessus sur l’entraide, la solidarité et la recherche d’une vie que l’on aimerait vivre. Aussi contre cette résignation diffuse et la recherche du consensus à tout prix – même au prix de l’apathie. Read the rest of this entry »
Monday 20 April: Last night in the early morning hours, police raided a house squatted by activists in Mariacka street, Katowice. The police used rubber bullets, smoke, and stun grenades. 21 people were beaten up and arrested. (At least 3 people were taken to hospital) The people imminently stated that they are starting a hunger strike against their detention. According to the police, the people are accused of breaching domestic peace (in an empty building!). Solidarity picket took place at 13:00 in front of the cop station at Lompy 19, Katowice. In Poznan at 14:00 solidarity picket in front of the Regional Police station, Kochanowskiego 2a.
European Economic Congress in Katowice: full hotels, empty houses – Antiterrorists fighting social change
Katowice. Another day of meetings for the European elites. The subject is TTIP and hundreds of other anti-social programs, forced on people against their will. A group of anarchists and trade unionists who organize Anticongress, together with the people that need a roof above their head, have squatted one of the thousands of empty buildings, which after being ‘cleaned’ of the tenants awaits its demolition and transformation into an office building. On the front wall, a huge banner is hung, saying ‘human capital resists!’. In the newly opened space, the ‘Alternative Economical Forum’ took place. The debates started on a different kind of economic politics, the kind that could reverse the trend of radical accumulation of wealth into the hands of the elites in Europe and the world.

This is a translation of a brochure written by 2 anti-authoritarian communist groups, Vida (Rivet) and Proletconnect about the anti-fascist struggle in Ukraine after the Maidan events. Events unfold on very high speed and although this brochure discusses the Ukrainian reality until June 2014, to the opinion of the translator it offers insight on the background of the conflict and the international geopolitical significance of these events. It offers a different interpretation compared to western media and even parts of the western left.
In USSR times…
“…Its (Kiev’s) buildings are famous all over Russia. It was a center of religion. And now it is a semi-ruin. Here the Germans showed what they could do. Every public building, every library, every theater, even the permanent circus, destroyed, not with gunfire, not through fighting, but with fire and dynamite. Its university is burned and tumbled, its schools in ruins. This was not fighting, this was the crazy destruction of every cultural facility the city had, and nearly every beautiful building that had been put up during a thousand years. Here German civilization did its work, and one of the few justices in the world is that German prisoners are helping clean up the mess that they made.
Network of Imprisoned Fighters (DAK) announce the end of their 48 day old hunger strike after a vote in the Greek parliament paved the way for a significant portion of the comrade’s demands to be met.
These include: redefining of the legal framework regarding Type-C prisons, revision of the so-called ‘Hoodie Law’ (severe sentencing for those caught committing crimes while masked) – judges will now be able to exercise their own discretion in such cases, the involvement of an independent expert from the first stage of DNA collection in cases that involve DNA evidence and the release from prison to house arrest for N17 comrade Savvas Xiros who is extremely unwell and legally considered to be 98% disabled; this would also apply to all prisoners who are considered to be 80% disabled or over.
“These 48 days of tenacious struggle at a tactical level ended with a positive outcome that reaped dividends for those at ‘the bottom.’ A positive result also for the global fight against the bosses and the new totalitarianism which they impose as well as another step closer towards a classless society. Our aim is to use this victory and the new territory gained to become even more dangerous to those in power. We share the life-giving flames of victory with all those who saw this struggle as a common cause and took part in our fight.”
On the evening of the Easter day, 12 to 13 of April, we attacked using 3 incendiary devices with time delay, aiming to destroy the building’s entrance and 3 vehicles (1 truck and 2 vans) belonging to a poultry company in Agios Pavlos Str. in Peristeri, as an action of solidarity with the imprisoned hunger strikers in Greek prisons.
Strength to all those who continue, to the imprisoned members of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and those who are recovering, having stood with dignity and consistency against the state and in this specific timing, against the left administrators and exponents of authority – who (and this is clear for all those who don’t connive) since the first day they gripped the governmental seats have made their intentions clear, with highlight, so far, the tactical administration of the hunger strike and the eviction of the occupied University’s of Athens deanery.
IMMEDIATE satisfaction of the hunger strikers’ demands:
Abolition of paragraphs 187 and 187A of the counter-terrorist law
Abolition of the hood-law
Abolition of type C prisons
Immediate release of the heavily handicapped Savvas Ksiros
Restriction of DNA use
We chose this specific target as we believe that practical opposition to the non-human animals commercialization industry cannot be excluded from the fight against the state, the capital and every kind of authoritarian superstructure. The practice of detention is the same, equally rejectable whether it has to do with human prisons – “correctional institutions”, concentration camps or if it concerns structures of the meat and animal products industry .
The timing of our attack was no coincidence. It was a moment while the human-mass was still sunk in sloth, having done the previous days their bit towards the Church and the holy ghosts that haunt and define their very existence. Every temple of society, physical or mental, every mold, every stereotype, every habit that reproduces, feeds or just reflects the numerous faces of power, is worth nothing more than being crushed.
Such a habit is the meat eating which has been established the exact same way that the practice of nature looting is established as “normal”, as we notice it taking place in Skouries, Chalkidiki, Italy (NO-TAV) and every place in the world.
Through this action of ours we respond to the call of Chilean comrades, whose actions have given us smiles so many times. Strength to Nataly Casanova, Juan Flores and Guillermo Durán, who are on hunger strike since April 14th.
At the same time, we are sending our own signal of solidarity and complicity to all those charged, imprisoned and suffering repression, having found themselves on the attack lines of ELF and ALF.
We’re sending out a call to every rebelling individual, every affinity group, every direct action cell, in order to intensify the attacks on all fronts, in any way they think suitable, by all means available.
Synapses of Ignition for the polymorphous anarchist struggle – ELF
Anna Rjabova and Lillija Jezdovska are brave fighters for their own freedom and for the rights and freedom of their fellow detainees in the notorious Yarl’s Wood detention centre, near Bedford. On Thursday 9th April they were part of an integrated group of African, Caribbean and East European women who gathered to physically block the deportation of Lucy N, a victim of torture from Kenya. The women gathered together, sitting around Lucy, linking arms and singing.
That afternoon 30+ ‘guards’ employed by Serco (the private company that manages Yarl’s Wood) forced their way into Lucy’s room, wearing full riot gear and armed with batons. You can hear the moment the guards entered the room and dragged the women away here, there were 3 guards for every woman. Anna, Lillija and four other women were handcuffed and taken to Kingfisher wing, the isolation block within Yarl’s Wood.
Anna and Lillija had been brutally beaten on their legs with a baton by one of the guards, Jo Singh, against whom Lillija had previously made official complaints. Anna had to be taken to Bedford hospital for treatment on Saturday. They have made further complaints and have spoken to the Prison Inspectors currently visiting Yarl’s Wood.

This was originally published in the zine DISORDERLY CONDUCT. It’s a basic introduction to anti-civilization ideas. We think the anti-civilization argument is made pretty obvious when one simply looks around at the prison society in which we’re encaged. For the total destruction of civilization and towards the subsequent liberation for all non-human/human animals, and the earth!
Eric G. King, a 28-year-old vegan anarchist, was arrested and charged
with an attempted firebombing of a government official’s office in
Kansas City, MO in September 2014. Eric is being charged with throwing a
hammer through a window of the building, followed by two lit Molotov
cocktails. The criminal complaint states that both alleged incendiary
devices failed to ignite. Scheduled to go to trial in July 2015, he is
facing up to 30 years in federal prison.
Eric was identified as a suspect by local police because he had
previously come under suspicion for anti-government and anti-police
graffiti. He is currently being held in the Corrections Corporation of
America’s Leavenworth Detention Center. Read the rest of this entry »
Once again the Federal Tribunal rejected request of release on bail for Marco Camenish on 3rd December 2014, after the comrade has served 2/3 of the sentence, thus postponing his liberation to 2018.
The request had already been rejected by the Administrative Tribunal of Zurich on 24th October 2013, on the grounds that the comrade had showed no signs of repent in the course of the years.
The Swiss judiciary understanding of the case continues to follow the same line, as usual, and this is significant and conclusive as for the mechanisms of repressive revenge towards indomitable anarchist prisoners.
This is where wolves are silent because people are screaming…
10-20 of April: an international campaign of comrades in Chile, against prison. Ten days against the obeisances of those who learned to live like servants. A message of complicity. Words that escaped from the prisons of Chile, traveled thousands of kilometers away, crossed borders, police forces, censorship and reached our cells. Thoughts and meanings that became our sleepless friends to our difficult moments of the hunger strike we carried out. Where life and death stand a breath, heartbeat less away from each other, there where comradeship, solidarity and complicity give advantage to life. Words and thoughts of comrades from Chile gave us courage, tenacity and a hoard of smiles.
Against a society that accepts being marked with the mark of authority, with ID numbers, tax records, cameras, products’ barcodes, Facebook, virtual reality, monitors, here we also stand, we who refuse to be tamed. We refuse to become the obedient pets in the shop window of survival that repeats itself and looks like a slow death.
In different places and moments, different negation and insurrection, which although speak different languages, express common meanings, meet. It’s the meeting of all of us who discovered our true face when we put on a hood to attack the ugliness of this world. It’s the call of all of us who chose the sound of a bank’s window crumbling, the break and ignition of a molotov cocktail as it traverses the night as a glowing star, an explosion that blows up authority and silence of the social graveyard, a pistol arming while rising to shoot death carrying normality, as our music.

“Hoy en $hile, como en Grecia y España, se castiga la solidaridad, el amor y sus bellezas” Nataly Casanova
Saludamos a lxs compañerxs Nataly Casanova, Juan Flores y Guillermo Durán, quienes desde el 14 de abril iniciaron una huelga de hambre exigiendo la liberación de Enrique Guzmán (detenido durante la tarde del
6 de abril y puesto bajo prisión preventiva), el cese de los hostigamientos contra sus cercanxs por parte de la miserable institución de Gendarmería y los brazos represivos del Estado, exigiendo también el cese del régimen de aislamiento al que ha sido sometida la compañera Nataly Casanova.
En estos meses de prisión preventiva lxs compañerxs han enfrentado con dignidad las maniobras represivas de los carceleros, sin retroceder un milímetro en sus convicciones de Guerra e ideas de libertad. Desde la calle solidarizamos incondicionalmente con ellxs, reconociéndolxs como compañerxs y como parte de nuestro mismo combate contra el Poder y toda Autoridad.
SOLIDARIDAD Y ACCIÓN CON LXS COMPAÑERXS EN HUELGA DE HAMBRE DESDE EL 14 DE ABRIL!!!
ADELANTE, Y EN PIE DE GUERRA!!!
Proje ‘Phoenix’ Somut eylemin Atlantis’ine giden yolu işaret eden gizli kalmış haritanın açılmasıdır. Interzone’nun yanan şehirlerinin ötesinde varolmuş bilinmeyen ve kaybolmuş kıtadır. Kesintisiz otonom saldırının anarşist ilkeleri, Enternasyonalizm, Devrimci Dayanışma, eylem, diyalog, fikir ve örgütlü gayri-resmiyetle (enformel) yaratılmıştır. Dünya genelinde çeşitli doğrudan eylem gruplarının birbiri ardına gelen saldırılari tecritin sessizliğini kesintiye uğratıyor ve tekno endüstriyel sistemin hapishane toplumuna karşı karşı-saldırıya geçiyor.
….Phoenix kendi küllerinden doğdu ve korkakların sessizliğini alaya almaya, Prometheus ateşini ezeli isyancılara sunmaya geldi…..
…Sizinle konuşacak bir kelimemiz dahi yok çünkü herşeyi ateş açıklayacak…..
“Eski gruplar aktive oldu, Otoritenin ve uzantılarının kabuslarına hayat verme sözüyle yeni gruplar oluşturuldu,”

PROYECTO FÉNIX “El Regreso de la Conspiración de Células del Fuego desde las Cenizas”
El “Proyecto Fénix” nace como un gesto solidario dedicado a Alfredo Cospito y Nicola Gai, del “Núcleo Olga FAI/FRI” que asumió la responsabilidad del ataque armado contra Roberto Adinolfi, empresario nuclear de “Ansaldo Nucleare”, y además como una iniciativa internacional de ataque, comenzando en Grecia con la colocación de un artefacto explosivo contra la Directora de la Prisión de Korydallos.
La expansión de las acciones enmarcadas dentro del proyecto se desarrolla a lo largo y ancho de distintos territorios donde la práctica insurreccional pasa de la teoría a la acción, en absoluta consecuencia con las palabras de quienes se declaran en Guerra contra toda Autoridad y el Poder. A su vez, es un incandescente foco revolucionario que insta al diálogo y al debate entre distintos individuxs organizadxs de manera informal y difusa que dan forma al ataque permanente y minoritario.
La práctica del internacionalismo anárquico es uno de los cimientos del proyecto, es el momento donde el ataque autónomo encuentra un campo en común que une, nutre y potencia distintas realidades y tensiones, apuntando y calibrando en su alma la persiste confrontación contra lo existente.

With new reports by snitching cop journalists, an effort is being made to target comrades who come occasionally in contact with the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. In this case, they try to locate comrades from the UK who, as reported by the cops, publish an insurrectionary anarchist magazine there. They want to investigate what comrades from abroad traveled to Greece on specific dates. Also, they take into account the importance of the presence of FAI cells in the country and report that a group of Greek cops will travel there to inform their colleagues. This is a witch hunt which now targets comrades abroad as well. The case of the escape of the members of CCF becomes the perfect alibi, after several months of media propaganda, for cleaning up and hunting comrades which the cops already have in target.
