Thessaloniki, Greece: Responsibility claim for the arson of a diplomatic vehicle

Thursday, November 14th, 2019

IT/EN (October 31st, 2019)

Social peace in Chile is now a thing of the past. And tolerance and consensus for State and capitalist barbarism also belongs to the past. Submission to the modern version of the Pinochet dictatorship, represented by the Piniera government. Chile is burning with the insurrectional proletarian flame of the oppressed.

It all started on October 19 when a student protest against an increase in public transport ticket prices was met with violent repression from the police forces. From then on, everything took its course. Day by day millions of insurgents flood the streets, attack the police forces, burn and plunder the symbols of wealth and power. They are burning their past, marching on the insurgent horizons of tomorrow. 11 years after the uprising in the Greek territories, these rebels remind us of what we loved most: the refusal to return to normality.

Insurrection is no longer a dead word. It is the dying breath of order and safety within a society that has been choking from the misery and barbarism of capitalism. And the result of the persistent labour of all those who work so consistently and stubbornly to question and destabilize the regime’s social consensus. Against the first retreat of the regime which hastily went to negotiations, proposing new, more favourable measures, the rebels respond without repentance: Tomorrow starts a new day of class war. Let’s take everything! (more…)

IT/EN

On the night of November 6, 2019, we burned 5 cars of MM [Metropolitane Milanesi] in Forze Armate street in Milan because MM is one of those responsible for the evictions of houses.

This action is in solidarity with all those arrested and investigated after the eviction of Asilo Occupato in Turin.
In solidarity with those affected by the repression at Barona in Milan.

Note: Metropolitane Milanesi, the company that manages underground transport in Milan, since some years is managing a part of the residential popular housing in Milan; while the remaining part is managed by Aler. Barona is a neighborhood in Milan; the repressive fact referred to in the text happened on October 30, when some members of the Comitato Autonomo Abitanti Barona (“Autonomous Committee of Barona Inhabitants”, an antagonistic group related to the struggle for the house in the neighborhood) received some “divieti di dimora” (bans) from Milan.

Ukraine: Two cell towers of Life/Turk-cell destroyed in Kyiv region – Solidarity with struggle in Kurdistan

Thursday, November 14th, 2019

In October 2019 the Turkish state invaded Northern Syria. The target of their aggression was Democratic Federation of Northern and Eastern Syria (Rojava). By the fault of rulers blood is being shed again and peacful people are suffering and dying. The goal of the president of Turkey Erdogan is to destroy revolutionary Autonomy of Syrian Kurds. Revolutionaries of Kurdistan build a society of stateless popular self-management. And Rojava became an example and model for Kurds in Turkey. That is why «Turkish sultan» started a war.

In the night of November 11 we destroyed two cell phone network towers of the Lifecell company settled by the Zahaltsy and Piskivka settlements in Kyiv region. Lifecell is fully owned by Turkish giant TURKCELL, the largest mobile provider of the State of Turkey. As a large corporate tax payer Turkcell appears as the indirect sponsor of the aggression of Erdogan`s regime. There are also widely known connections of the provider with the ruling «Justice and Development Party» which construct the basis of the current system in the country. These are the reasons why we consider the property of Lifecell as a legitimate target for the sabotage.

We stay in solidarity with revolutionaries and people of Kurdistan. They fight the occupation and oppression — for the liberty and social justice. We call to everyone who cares about the situation to participate in the resistance in a manner according to their abilities.

Freedom to the peoples — death to the Empires!

Athens, Greece: Attacks and clashes with the riot cops, in solidarity with the revolt in Chile (October 30, 2019)

Tuesday, November 5th, 2019

IT/EN/FR/EL

For nearly two weeks the oppressed in Chile have seized the streets of the country, carrying out a variety of attacks on repressive units, government structures and businesses. The State’s response to their insurgency, though it has caused dozens of deaths and rape, thousands injured and arrested, cannot stop the fury of the insurgents.

Today, October 30, at 1:00 pm, as part of the International Week of Solidarity for the Chilean Insurrection, we broke the front windows of an Elta post office, a Piraeus bank and the “showcase” of forced prostitution of women, “Xoriatiko Bakery”. We blocked traffic with rubbish bins in flames as barricades in the two directions of Patision – filling the road with hundreds of fliers – seeking confrontation with the cops. The clash with the State-run garbage lasted for quite some time during which the mat riot cops made their appearance and became some of the fastest runners. Pink is one of our favourite colours. We also hope that the pigs like it as they will be forced to return to the police headquarters like pink prawns.

We used the ASOEE University as a base, just as the Chilean comrades have repeatedly chosen to launch their attacks on police forces. We see academic institutions not as academic asylums but as shelters for all kinds of oppressed, rebellious organisation and a base of aggression. The best way to express solidarity is to take aggressive action. We do not want to go into lengthy analysis upon analysis. Anyway we hear our comrades from afar get organized and attack. We won’t say any more. We let them and their fires talk to us.

For every insurgent soul, dozens of stones on the heads of the cops
FROM GREECE TO CHILE SEND EVERY COP TO INTENSIVE CARE

Molotov attack against police vehicles in Kiev (Ukraine)

Tuesday, November 5th, 2019

On the night of 31 October 2019, we, the anarchists of Kyiv, attacked a police station in the town of Vishnyovoe, Kyiv region (address: 22 Balukova Street). Having found a hidden approach to the parking lot, we used Molotovs to destroy police vehicles.

The police are an instrument of violence in the hands of the State. We can hear that the Ukrainian police have become “better” since the reform. When drunk policemen killed a 5-year-old child in Pereyaslav-Khemnitsky on 3 June 2019, they showed us what all these reforms cost. We do not need “improved police”, but a new system: direct people’s self-governance and real control of the people over the resources and economy of the country. The order must be ensured by the structures accountable to the self-government bodies. The police in their present form are executioners at the service of robbers and oppressors. It should be abolished as an institution.

We dedicate our operation to the memory of the Russian anarchist Mikhail Zhlobitsky. Exactly one year ago, Mikhail committed an act of retaliation against the executioners and sadists of the FSB. He detonated an improvised explosive device in the Department of FSB of Arkhangelsk and sacrificed his life. The solidarity of the revolutionaries does not know the state borders. We feel the pain of the distant like-minded person as our own. We are convinced that the feat of Mikhail Zhlobitsky will not be forgotten. We call on all honest people of the world to make October 31 a day of active action against the oppressors.

Freedom or death
Long live the revolution!

Anarchist bomb attack in Donetsk – Donbass, Ukraine

Wednesday, October 30th, 2019

On the Sunday morning, October 27, 2019, an explosion occurred in the Proletarsky district of Donetsk. The mobile communications tower of the Phoenix operator was blown up. The civilian population was not injured, but the equipment was destroyed. An explosive device was landed under a booth with equipment and triggered remotely. The people who committed the explosion published a video of the action. They also demonstrated a leaflet explaining their motives: “This was done to draw the attention to the inhuman tortures in the basements of the MGB (Ministry of State Security of “Donbass People’s Republic”). Abuses and tortures with electric wires in the “people’s” republics has become an everyday normality. The people of Donbass should go to a protest rally against tortures, or the fascist republic will be left without communication. ”

Our comrades from the Combatant-Anarchist resource report that they received anonymous information that this action was performed by anarchists, in memory of the act of Mikhail Zhlobitsky.

Kiev, Ukraine: Anarchists burned a police car

Saturday, October 26th, 2019

E-mail communication dated 18 October 2019

It’s a classic, it’s a must-know thing!

On the night of 16 to 17 October 2019, the Toyota Prius car of the patrol police was burned to the ground. It happened at the guarded parking lot in Svyatoshinsky district of Kyiv. We, anarchists, take responsibility for the arson and will publish an exclusive video where you can see how the police car burns.

Why are we at war with the police bastards?

Today, our lives are under the iron control of the state and corporations. No one asks us whether we want it or not. The authorities do what they think is right. For them, we are a commodity, cattle and lowlifes. Everyone who wants to oppose this way of life is expected to face repression, death. But control and repression would not be possible without the police, the rotten body of the Interior Ministry. The police are the main instrument in the hands of the authorities. Therefore, we are forced to wage war with police crap – for the sake of freedom, for the sake of justice. (more…)

Prison of Nancy-Maxeville, France: Nuclear state = Police state

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019

IT/EN/FR

[Claim appeared on Monday, September 30, on the website nantes.indymedia.org].

On Friday, September 27th [2019], the Nancy-Maxeville prison was attacked to denounce the repression of the nuclear State.

In the pre-evening of the demo against the nuclear waste-dump – project CIGEO « Vent de Bure » at Nancy – we attacked (symbolically) the prison of Nancy-Maxeville, to send greetings to our comrades who are imprisoned and those who are charged by repression. Also to set a sign for a society without prisons in general.

We marked the walls with the paint, smash the windows of some administration buildings, launch smoke bombs and flares in the yard of the prison and greet the prisoners with pyrotechnics in the surrounding area. The action was protected by crowsfeets [metal devices to puncture car tyres] and burning barricades on the access roads. (more…)

Mexico: ‘Nos portamos mal, muy mal y podemos portarnos peor!’ – Algunxs Anarquistas Informales en Conflicto Permanente

Tuesday, October 1st, 2019

EN: We are behaving badly, very badly– and we can behave worse!

El Estado mexicano en su lógica dominadora, continúa acusándonos de “provocadores” e imponiendo el pacifismo ciudadano del “pueblo bueno”. Y ahora trata de ir más lejos…

Desde el púlpito mañanero AMLO intenta invisivilizarnos, exterminarnos, desaparecernos, es por eso que tergiversa el sentido de la lucha anárquica, de nuestra historia y hasta el mismísimo significado de la palabra ANARQUÍA. Por eso nos denomina “conservadores” mientras imparte “lecciones” a sus mascotas felices, con el consentimiento de las focas aplaudidoras que fingen ser periodistas cada mañana en palacio nacional.

Para AMLO, al igual que para todos los presidentes anteriores (y para todos lxs jefes de Estado en la historia), el/la mejor anarquista es el que está muertx o el oportunista que renuncia a las ideas y le lame las botas, como es el caso del estalinista converso Paco Ignacio Taibo.

Esa es la razón por la que AMLO miente y nos señala como “conservadores”. Todxs sus enemigxs, somos “conservadores”, incluixs lxs anarquistas. (more…)

Grecia: Aggiornamento sul processo contro l’anarchico Konstantinos Giagztoglou (settembre 2019)

09/26/2019

On Friday, September 20, 2019, in the special courtroom of the Korydallos prison, the trial against anarchist comrade Konstantinos Giagztoglou began.

CASE SUMMARY

Dinos was arrested in October 2017 in an anti-terrorist ambush when he left an apartment in central Athens, which he rented with false ID to help a persecuted comrade. He was arrested with an order issued by Special Investigator Eutychis Nikopoulos for the case of intercepted letter-bomb packages which were sent to officials of the European economic and political elite in the spring of that year. Since then he has been detained and accused of participating in a “terrorist organization”, as well as construction and dispatch of explosive devices to officials of financial institutions and rating agencies throughout Europe, as well as an attempted murder for the package that injured Loukas Papadimos, the former prime minister of Greece. The comrade has declared from the first moment of his arrest and in an open letter to the anarchist movement, that renting the apartment was a conscious choice in the context of revolutionary solidarity, but does not accept any of the other accusations.
