Solidarity actions for Social Centre Satama, Roma migrants and anarchist prisoners (Finland)
The following communique was originally published in the Finnish anarchist portal Takku.net. During the last weekend an Islamist blogger tried to take credit for the bomb and molotov cocktails, until an anarchist communique was published on Monday 6.6.11, putting the attacks within the anti-state/anti-capitalist frame of struggle. Mainstream media news can be found here: 1 & 2
From the comrades:
“Tuesday night 13.4.2011 we burned five dumpsters at Pukinmäki train station in Helsinki. We also wrote some slogans for free spaces on some walls.
During the next two nights we burned dumpsters at several places in the city of Vantaa.
Tuesday 19.4. we attacked the police; we set up a bonfire on the street, and when the police showed up, we greeted them with stones and paint bombs. The police responded by attacking the nearby Social Centre Satama, which they found empty after a long siege and assault inside.
During the night 31.5.-1.6. in the district of Pukinmäki, Helsinki, we closed the Kenttätie-road, frequently used by the police, by setting several dumpsters on fire.
Early Friday morning 3.6. in the Helsinki district of Pasila, we put a bomb under Turvatiimi’s (a private security company) car. Although the bomb was fully functional, we decided not to explode it, to ensure that bystanders and workers in other nearby companies wouldn’t be put in danger. This is also why we placed the bomb so that everyone in the courtyard could see it.
Early Saturday morning 4.6. we attacked two gas stations with molotov cocktails in the Helsinki district of Tapaninvainio.
Monday morning 6.6. we called bomb threats to the following embassies: Belarus, Russia, Spain, Mexico, Chile, United States, Germany, Greece, Italy.
We chose these countries because of the ongoing struggles there. We wanted to make the representatives of these countries feel a bit of the fear, that our anarchist comrades face in their everyday struggle against the violence machine of the state.
With these attacks we want to show our solidarity to the comrades of Social Centre Satama and their struggle for free space. We also send revolutionary greetings to the Roma migrants in Helsinki, who are oppressed daily by the violent apparatus of the state.
With these attacks we also express our support to every anarchist prisoner, and want to remind that the struggle will continue despite the attempts at repression by the state. The time of empty talk is over, long live anarchy!“
