Tampere: Trucks torched at dairy company (Finland)

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

14.11.17

We wanted to dedicate this action to all our kidnapped friends, or those who have been kidnapped once, by setting fire to 4 trucks from one of the biggest milk companys in finland named valio. The action took place in a city named tampere in the early morning hours of this tuesday. Many of our cell have wanted to target this company for a long time. We think that it is not necessary to explain too much the reason of our selection: the milk industry has a long history of destruction, cruelty and torture on this planet, its ecosystem and their habitants. Like our friends the cows and the forests. Who are cruelly abused and murdered or destroyed by the production of milk.”

Limoges: Arson Attack Targeting Energy Company Enedis Destroys 20 Vehicles (France)

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

Note from Insurrection News, 25.10.17: During the night of October 23rd to 24th, a fire destroyed twenty vehicles belonging to the company Enedis (formerly known as ERDF), the electric power grid operator for most of France. Graffiti was left at the scene reading ‘LINKY GET OUT OF HERE!”. The next day Le Populaire du Center, a mainstream newspaper in the region announced that they had received a short communique from an anonymous group of women, using the acronym DECCLIN, claiming responsibility for the attack.

According to the communique, the women who carried out the arson attack did so to protest the lack of action by the authorities against Linky so-called ‘smart’ meters. Linky meters are basically a type of mini-computer similar to meters used in other parts of the world that are installed in homes to allow power companies to monitor electricity useage. (more…)

Incendiary anti-militarist actions against arms-companies (Belgium)

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

Lucrosum et decorum est pro patria facere?
[Is it profitable and proper to produce for the fatherland?]

They don’t speak Latin in Belgium.
At about 2 am on Monday 25th September the residents of Malines (a town half way between Brussels and Anvers) were woken by a string of detonations. As they looked out of their windows they saw a huge fire blazing in the buildings of a local company. In spite of the intervention of many fire brigade vehicles, nothing could be done. Of the 5,000 square metres of the company, nothing remained. Everything destroyed. A hard blow for Varec, a company that produces tracks for tanks and tyres for military vehicles and is a well-known supplier of the Armed Forces in the United States. (more…)

State repression against IMC Grenoble and IMC Nantes (France)

Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

Following the publication of a communiqué claiming responsibility for a fire in a garage at a Grenoble police depot (gendarmerie) during the night of September 20th/21st, Indymedia Grenoble and Indymedia Nantes have been threatened by the French police. The administrators of these sites have received emails from the Central Office for the Fight Against Crime Linked to Information Technology and Communication (OCLCTIC) demanding that the concerned articles be removed from the sites under (in) 24 hours, otherwise rendering the sites liable to blocking and dereferencing.

The communiqué’s authors explained that the garage fire had been carried out as “part of a wave of attacks in solidarity with people currently under trial” such as the Quai de Valmy police car arson.

In this Grenoble arson attack, several dozen vehicles have been burned (torched). Here is the communiqué itself: (more…)

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…)

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)

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.

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.

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.

“Don’t you have a light?” and friend.

Hamburg: Arson attack against a ‘Securitas’ private security company vehicle (Germany)

Thursday, April 6th, 2017

Because we despise any kind of authority, we set fire to a car belonging to the security company ‘Securitas’ last night. The conditions in which we find ourselves are making it clearer to us day by day that there are politicians, judges and prosecutors, authorities, crappy teachers, conductors, and even cops and their lap dogs of security that stand over us and control our lives. This situation is completely unacceptable. We can take care of ourselves, and we recognize that they are the ones who stand in the way of an emancipated life. For they are there to defend the freedom of the rulers. Not the freedom of being free from domination.

For our form of freedom that consists of solidarity and respect for our environment exists outside of capitalist thinking and would be its downfall. An anarchist world would mean the loss of their power and the death of their world.
In a few months is the climax of the authorities in Hamburg.
There is much to do.
Take care of yourselves. See you on the streets.

Fire to the ruling power, Fire to the G20 and its system.
