Wilson Security spray-painted and locks glued in refugee solidarity action (Australia)

Sunday, July 17th, 2016

On the night of Sunday 26th June we glued the locks and spray painted the entrance to Wilson Security on Sydney Road, Coburg in Melbourne.

Wilson provides security at Nauru and Manus Island detention centres and are responsible for numerous, well documented abuses of detainees.

Solidarity with the protestors at Nauru detention centre!

Close the camps!

ATM machines demolished in solidarity with comrades accused of expropriation (Netherlands)

Saturday, July 9th, 2016

Last night we demolished 8 ATM machines in The Hague, the Netherlands in solidarity with the anarchist comrades accused of expropriation in Aachen, Germany.

Last week, on 6 July, a comrade got arrested in Amsterdam and is now in jail awaiting extradition to Germany. The week before a comrade from Spain got already extradited to Germany. We call out to anybody to make action in solidarity with the imprisoned comrades! We are fucking angry!

We are not interested in knowing whether the comrades are actually responsible for the bank robberies or not. Expropriation is an ethically just and politically
legitimate practice, a method of struggle that is part of the history of all revolutionary movements.

Indeed, despite the constant attempts by Power to reduce this method to within the scope of a ‘common crime’, motivated by individual greed, the fact is that the
expropriation of places of accumulation of capital is a constant in our history: from the anarchist-syndicalist groups in the early twentieth century who robbed banks to support strikes or help the families of imprisoned comrades, to the various autonomous groups of the the 70s and 80s.

Immediate freedom for our comrades! Burn all prisons! Destroy all banks!

Sabotage of political offices in solidarity to detained migrants (Australia)

Friday, July 8th, 2016

On the 2nd July, the day of the federal election in so-called Australia, we glued locks, graffitted and broke the windows of Liberal and Labour MP offices across Narrm/so-called Melbourne.
We did this in solidarity with those on Manus Island, Nauru and in detention centres everywhere. End the border & prison industrial complex. End white supremacy.

Call for a Black July, plus a chronology of actions in solidarity with Rigaer 94 (Germany)

Friday, July 8th, 2016

We appreciate the call for a Black July from Rigaer 94. Many comrades in a lot of countries followed the call for a Black December of Nikos Romanos (Greek Prisoner) . It’s not just about the Rigaer 94 that people now connect and think about strategies, attack different enemies of our freedom and struggle against the cops and the system.

Especially in Germany the fight against the system was weak the last years. People were not able to combine their fights and actions without dissociating from others. The question of violence was not discussed anymore and the alliances got wider and more in accordance to the system. Now there is a house that struggles without compromises, maybe their attitude impressed some of us, some still think that they should have brought their house themselves and could be “free” now. But the sign they send, saying that they keep their status and fight, now shows it’s effect on a lot of us. It’s a window that opens up for a short time that we should use to stand together. A moment when we are fucking angry and use our strength to go on the streets and take them back!

Thanks to all of you who used the concept of Tag X to show your solidarity with the Rigaer 94 and their ideas!

For a Black July

Let us feel the heat coming from our hearts to the streets every night

Phoenix Project: Incendiary attack against police vehicle depot by Rain Cell – FAI/IRF (UK)

Friday, July 1st, 2016

Phoenix Project 2016 #2 [#1]

We take responsibility for an incendiary attack on 28.6.16 against police vehicles stored at their depot located at Poplar Way East, Avonmouth, Bristol. The depot also stores crowd control barricade units, CCTV vans, staff support and military vehicles occasionally.

We dedicate the action to the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and Aggeliki Spyropoulou, as well as to those in the attempted escape case.
This action is for the imprisoned comrades in UK, Greece, Chile, Russia, Poland, France, Czech Republic, France, Spain, Italy and around the world.

War to the ‘Smart Cities’ and the prison-society.

Long live anarchy and the wild.

Sabotage of consumer goods by Danaus Plexippus Nucleus / FAI-FRI (Italy)

CAMPAIGN AGAINST POISON IN THE WHOLE OF LOMBARDY –
COMMUNIQUE BY DANAUS PLEXIPPUS NUCLEUS FAI/FRI

ATTACK WITHOUT LIMITS

… For the time being, we used the enemy’s tools against it. We fed civilization with the poison it produces. …
Nicola and Alfredo Cell
FAI/FRI

[‘Green Nemesis’ project]

CHOICES OF ATTACK

Safety is a recurrent theme in today’s industrialized society, which safe it cannot feel in that it spreads and reverses hatred, violence and poison over itself daily. By periodically establishing the tolerability levels of the cancers that it itself develops, it is attempting to accustom people to accepting them. So ‘fine dust’ is allowed to pile up to within a certain threshold, torture in prison should be limited to denying prisoners any kind of reading inside the most punitive prison units, water is potable only if it contains a given amount of heavy metals… So what is ‘sure’ is just the constant poisoning we are subjected to, it is power alone that establishes the recommended daily dose.

We decided to highlight how unmanageable these limits are today. We overcame those that could tie down anarchist action long time ago, turning it into a mere cumbersome repetition of violent slogans and innocuous practices, as we savoured the beauty of discovering and reinventing new means of attack each time. The limits we are facing today are instead those that establish the safety of an alimentary product. (more…)

Athens: Incendiary gesture in complicity with rebels in France and in solidarity to international anarchist prisoners by FAI/FRI (Greece)

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

During and after the “social movement”, we’ll never stop following our destructive passions, pursuing our dreams of freedom, sowing the chaos of revolt in the order of authority. “Tout peut basculer”; anarchist newspaper published in Paris

In the early hours of June 9th 2016, we paid a brief visit to the offices of the French insurance company AXA in the centre of Athens and torched one of their vans. We ruled out the possibility of attacking the building with the means that are currently at our disposal, for the simple reason that we wouldn’t have caused considerable damage beyond broken windows and perhaps a small fire. Nevertheless, their vehicle that was parked every night next to their offices gave us a good opportunity to attack them quickly and discreetly.

We attacked a target that’s located in an area where, in addition to patrols, cops are constantly present; we were also aware that the surrounding cafeterias and sex shops are frequented by cops with or without uniform. But it only takes a good preparation to strike every potential target.

We chose to attack AXA as a minimum display of complicity with rebels in France, who are fighting in the streets for more than three months. We make it clear, however, that this is not an act of solidarity with “social movements” or the leftists who ask for law reforms, more democracy and a “fairer” Power; nor with the unions that try to manipulate the revolt to satisfy their own interest; nor with “the poor people” or “the working class” who complain now that the legislation affects their pockets and want the State to guarantee them a return to normalcy and a welfare regime. A normalcy and welfare built on the obedience and servitude of the consumerist mass. (more…)

Bloomington, Indiana: Probation office attacked for June 11 Solidarity (USA)

Monday, June 13th, 2016

On the night of June 11th, as a small gesture, we smashed out the windows of the probation office.

The police, courts, and prisons constitute a web of control that seeks to crush human beings, forcing conformity to a social order of hierarchy and exploitation.

While this manifests itself as police murders and the brutalization of prisoners, more and more it takes the role of diffuse repression via systems of home detention, work release, parole, and probation. In each of these systems of self-policing, the ability of collective resistance shrinks to none, isolating those rebels who will not submit to these forms of soft imprisonment.

We can no longer accept the role of judicial power in our lives. We do not care if this takes the form of police cars on our streets, prison walls separating us from our friends, ankle monitors, or daily check ins. It all must go. We attack the system that floods into our lives as a reminder that its sprawl should not be normalized. As forms of repression grow beyond the prison walls it should be met with consistent attacks.

Each act of revolt opens up space for joy in our lives, space to breathe freely.
Against the asphyxiation of prison society, we choose rebellion.

Total complicity with all those in revolt against prison and the state in all their forms.

Athens: Triple arson attack in the city centre by FAI/FRI (Greece)

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

The last days of May, in the centre of Athens, we torched two ATMs of Alpha Bank, as well as an excavator used for the metro line extension in the area of Exarchia.

We perceive the State’s effort to upgrade the control and disciplining mechanism as a way of establishing a consumerist and peaceful normalcy everywhere, and attacking spaces that diffuse anarchist theorisations and practices – which is why we choose to attack every form of Power with all available means.

We also carried out this action in memory of our comrade Mauricio Morales, who was killed on May 22nd 2009; and in solidarity with our incarcerated comrades.

ALL OUR FALLEN COMRADES COME ALIVE
THROUGH THE FLAMES OF INSURGENCY
GUERRILLA GREETINGS TO THE CCF COMRADES

Arson of Hellenic Post vehicles in the suburb of Aghioi Anargyroi (Greece)

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

At a time when human zombies nourish their survival with social norms and superficial appearances driven by the legitimacy of Power, essentially legitimising the present miserable life, the conflict with the latter automatically marks an opening up of a field of dialectic to the feelings of the living. Boredom knocks on the door of all of us, and we try to transmute it into its denial. We are exactly there where the wait for a mass uprising has become trite, where the appetite for destruction of the rotten world is identical to our pleasure.

In the early hours of May 27th 2016, we burned two vehicles of the Hellenic Post (ELTA) in Aghioi Anargyroi.

With this action we send a minimum signal of strength to CCF, who is on trial for the escape plan and other cases, and to the rest of the anarchists implicated in these cases as well.

Let’s get more dangerous for Power.

A communiqué by Heriberto Salazar Gang of Saboteurs – FAI/FRI (Chile)

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

We are far from taking a strong defence of any individual who presents him/herself as enemy of the State and of all forms of dominion (over humans, animals and nature). We see how – and many imprisoned and not imprisoned comrades are right in this – not everyone can be defined a comrade or relations be forged with them.

In particular we want to generate a debate on what’s happening with the groups of action that deny anarchy is political objective and everyday struggle. These are so-called eco-extremists who shout coolly ‘death to anarchy’ thus disowning their own origins and formation, the idea following which they used to take nourishment from the warriors of the urban guerrilla of the past and the present, and then they went on to emphasize certain aspects that have always been within anarchy and its struggle for the liberation of humans, our brothers the animals and the earth.

Being extraneous to the constant tension we want to keep and to our struggle to make anarchy alive, a certain self-proclaimed eco-extremist sector is throwing away the libertarian ideal that manifests itself in the insurrectional struggle.

A certain small group linked to the imaginary category of ‘symbolic populations’ and musical/countercultural university areas (they disown university but they attend it… and they study the subjects they hate so much), despise the human animal and therefore see the enemy everywhere. (more…)

Incendiary attack against a Banamex bank in Oaxaca by Informal Anarchic Individualities (Mexico)

Monday, May 30th, 2016

On the morning of May 23rd in complicity with the full moon we decided to attack, in a city taken by police and military, we joined the night which makes us invisible and provides anonymity and secrecy. We torched a Banamex branch by placing tires in front of it and watering them with gasoline. So we illuminated the darkness and struck a blow, it’s a fleeting moment, but it’s a moment we enjoy and that for a few seconds makes us feel a little freer, releasing the fire that slowly eats away at the awful branch and it’s ATMs. We decided to videotape it so that everyone can see that some actions are easy to carry out, to encourage all comrades to take action wherever they are.

It is undeniable, we are everywhere. We see banks and those responsible for them as direct generators of poverty and social inequality. Banks are the temples where the “God” of money comes and goes, where misery is managed, where that “God” is placed above any form of life. (more…)

3 anarchist comrades accused of attempting to torch police cars, 1 beaten in custody + Open letter from anarchist groups in Warsaw (Poland)

Monday, May 30th, 2016

Update : An open letter from anarchist groups in Warsaw is published below.

Correction: Radykalne Ogrodki Dzialkowe (ROD) was attacked with a raid and searches only, there was no attempted eviction.

On the night between Sunday the 22nd & Monday the 23rd of May three comrades were detained near the car park of South Warsaw police station. Cops claim to have found an explosive device under a police car. All three comrades were taken into custody at the station and one comrade was severely beaten. The comrades refused to cooperate and denied all accusations of ‘terrorism’ and attempting to bomb the police station. The comrades received support from the anarchist community and 3 squats from Warsaw (Przychodnia, Syrena, Radykalne Ogrody Działkowe) and were provided with legal representation.

The same day police raided and tried to evict Radykalne Ogrody Działkowe squat where one of the arrested comrades lived and search for evidence. According to the “Reclaim The Fields” website: “Cops arrived between 4 and 5AM. They invaded the squat area by cutting fences and demolishing the gate with a forklift. Six undercover police invaded people’s rooms. One friend woke up and found himself surrounded by cops questioning him about his identity. They then proceeded to search the entire squat.” (more…)

Communication antennas sabotaged in solidarity with prisoners (Basque Country)

Monday, April 18th, 2016

from Irakunditxs via Contra Madriz

translated by Earth First! Journal

Every tool in the toolbox! Capitalist society is held up by two fundamental pillars: repression and social control. This time we have wanted to hit a part of the system of social control via communication antennas. Between Saturday night and Sunday morning (April 2-3), led by the stars, we approached two antennas in the road between Iruña and Irurtzun (Nafarroa) and with the help of pliers we opened a breach inside wire mesh that surrounds the antennas. With wooden-handled mallets we destroyed the electricity meters inside both antennae and we broke the two AC units inside each, as well. With axes we cut the cables to the antennas’ electrical device as well as wires to the distribution substation that power the antennas.

This time we demand and make this action public in part to launch an irrintzi solidarity campaign with our imprisoned compañeros who are on hunger strike in the murderous and torturous state jails: José Adrián Poblete Darre, Xavier Corporales Barruecos, and Antonio Chavero Mejías. We do this for you.

In solidarity with the compañerxs Monica and Francisco who have recently been charged in the first degree to 12 years (a sentence is but an opinion). Strength and courage.

[This was done] in protest of the violations which are penetrating the Earth and nature, such as the TAV and the other infrastructures which serve only for the interests of the same people as always. Ama lurra defenda dezagun! [Euskara language.]

PS. It’s a shame that the fire we had hoped to gift in the end did not happen…. Do not fret, as we will take care of that next time. estatuari gerra, gerra beti!
