Fire to Sodexo! Arson of company vehicle – Solidarity to Bernhard, Peter and Thomas of K.O.M.I.T.E.E. (Germany)

From Actforfree, via an Italian translation by imprisoned eco-anarchist Marco Camenisch:

For almost 20 years company Sodexo has been the target of people like us, who are struggling against the racist and neo-colonialist system. It started in 1997, when Sodexo offered to take on catering and other services destined to refugees in the knowledge this would result in a huge turnover. Since then Sodexo has been internationally known as a company who became a big multinational operating in many countries under low cost management, i.e. by racially reducing human life to a question of figures.

After the justice sector was privatized in Great Britain, Sodexo took on the management of 5 prisons. In this case too, people without the status of citizens were put in the hands of private companies by the State in exchange of huge amounts of money. According to economy laws these companies gained total power in the exploitation of their resources. And they’ve been saving on human lives first and foremost (…)

Greetings to the rebels locked up in one of the British Sodexo jails, who rose up in March when 50 prisoners took control of an entire prison unit for a remarkable length of time, and to the group that gave us news of this and attacked the court of Yate with gas and petrol.

Actions against Sodexo were recently carried out also in this country: on 28/10/2013 and on 17/6/2014 unknown people set Sodexo vehicles on fire (1 and 2).

During a No-Border Camp in Brussels, a Sodexo building had all its windows smashed and another one was flooded with oil.

Following the abuses of those who want to govern migration in Berlin and elsewhere, we think it necessary to widen these practices of attack and at the same time to develop a strategy aimed at damaging the deportation machine well beyond symbolic gestures.

After the arrest of Bernhard of K.O.M.I.T.E.E., history is repeating itself and we all should take the occasion to gather new strength and knowledge. Here is our contribution in a beautiful night: we dedicate the arson of a Sodexo vehicle in Neukolln to Bernhard, Peter and Thomas, who almost managed to blow up a jail in Grunau 1995, following a string of deportations, and who had to go on the run until today; unfortunately Bernhard was arrested at the beginning of July 2014 in Venezuela and is awaiting extradition to Germany.

We agree with the communiqué issued by the comrades of the three, which we quote here: “What’s happening on the borders outside the EU every day, the super-armed Frontex apparatus, the inhuman conditions in German migrants’ detention camps and also the struggle of people living as clandestine demonstrate how courageous and visionary was the attempt of the comrades at putting an end to this practice of the system.”

It’s time we remembered the past: not only the K.O.M.I.T.E.E but also the Revolutionary Cells (RZ) who have given strong contributions to this struggle.

Let’s consider what has been done, let’s think of new things to do, new strategies for the struggle against state racism and exploitation. Let’s increase the pressure on the bosses and let’s make space to a new liberated world.

Fire to Sodexo and to all the exploiters in this world order that despises humanity. If people are dying it is our duty to act and to intensify the struggle against those who only care for profit and don’t give a shit of human lives.

Burning vehicles can only be small lights in the sky of resistance, many small stars form a constellation, all together they make a bright night.
