Athens: Armed attacks against Mexican and French Embassies – Communique from the ‘Organisation of Revolutionary Self-Defense’ – ‘Towards a New International Revolutionary Movement’ (Greece)

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

From Athens IMC, Actforfreedomnow:

On Sunday 31st of August, a little before dawn, we carried out an armed intervention against the Mexican state, by shooting at the building of its embassy in Athens. On Wednesday 9th of October, at quarter to five a.m. we carried out another armed intervention against the French state, by throwing a hand grenade next to the guard of its embassy in Athens, opposite the Greek parliament. These two aggressive actions of our organization, together with our first armed intervention on the 25th of May 2014 against PASOK, defy in deed the armed domination of the Greek state and at the same time they express the vision of social revolution and of the dissolution of authoritative institutions here and now.

In order to construct a revolutionary movement on sturdy foundations, we must study the defeats of the past. We must focus on the contradictions of past movements and analyze the dynamics of class antagonism today, as a result of a historical evolution. The totalitarian capitalist aggression, which began two and a half decades ago and spreads around the globe, is connected to the fundamental crisis of the socialist movement.

The main contradiction which brought about the demise of the revolutionary wave of the 20th century is statism. Parliamentary democracy, dictatorship of political parties and, at the same time, the repression of workers’ self organization implanted bourgeois authority in the loins of social revolutions, ever since the French revolution. The revolution in Russia was led by a political and technocratic elite. (more…)

Monday, November 13th, 2017

[Noticias de la guerra social]

Durante el 01 de noviembre del 2017 anonimxs consiguieron instalar un
artefacto explosivo en la sede del partido Democratacristiano en la
comuna de Ñuñoa, específicamente en la esquina de Dublé Almeyda con
Pedro de Valdivia.

Cerca de las 16:00 hrs el esotérico, demócrata y cristiano Jaime Hales
–Presidente comunal del partido y televisivo tarotista- no consigue
predecir el bolso que encuentra en el antejardín del partido revisando
en su interior, según su propia declaración:”Vi que había un cilindro
parecido a lo que es un extinguidor, al cual estaba amarrado, con una
cinta adhesiva de color gris, tres tubos. Abrí un poco más la mochila y
vi que había al fondo una caja de cartón y, entre otras palabras que
estaban escritas en la caja, había una palabra que decía ‘pólvora’. En
ese momento, se me vino a la cabeza que esto era una bomba”

Sunday, November 5th, 2017

On the night of November 2nd in Mexico, we decided to take action against Gate 1 of the Heroic Military Academy with a homemade explosive device in order to begin a campaign of imaginative sabotage against all instances of the State to demand the release of anarchist prisoners in Me$$ico and around the world and to invite individuals and collectives to participate in this upcoming Black November.

For the fall of all regimes!
For the release of all human and non-human animals!
To burn all the instances of the State-Capital!

Sabotage for Santiago Maldonado at Argentinian Embassy – Copenhagen (Denmark)

Saturday, November 4th, 2017

Copenhagen, Denmark

In the night between the 17th and 18th of October we vandalized the entrance of the Argentinian embassy in Copenhagen with paint. We also wrote the name Santiago Maldonado and a circled A.

We did this because the Argentinian state is responsible for the disappearance of the anarchist Santiago Maldonado that happened more than two months ago. A few days after our action we heard the sad news that his dead body had been found. The state and the police are responsible! We are angry!

Some anarchists.

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…)

Santiago: University Animal Experimentation Laboratory Trashed, 120 Rats Liberated (Chile)

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

During the first week of October, 2017, persons unknown were able to enter the University of Chile’s science faculty at the Juan Gomez Milla Campus on Macul and Grecia avenues.

After having previously identified a laboratory for animal experimentation, the unknown persons entered it, released the animals imprisoned there (mainly rodents) and destroyed the infrastructure of the lab along with all the ‘research’ documents that were inside it. The unknown persons managed to escape without being detected or identified.

During the days that followed, it was confirmed that 120 laboratory rodents were released, they were being experimented on to test the physiological effects of climate change. The ‘Institutional Committee for the Care and Use of Animals’ (CICUA) – the name of the organization responsible for approving, supervising and certifying the use of animals for experimentation – stated that the animals were not being abused, and also noted that “most of the released rodents suffer from afflictions and will not survive for long since they require the assistance of humans for their well-being and survival”.

Athens: Regarding the letter-bomb attack against ex-prime minister and technocrat Loukas Papadimos (Greece)

Monday, October 9th, 2017

Since the following news did not get a wide distribution outside Greece in the international counter-information networks when it appeared in May 2017, and as the corporate news also attempted to mitigate and ‘play-down’ the impact of this attack, we rely this info to highlight that everything continues and nothing is over.

On 25 May, on the first day of the 2017 NATO summit taking place in Brussels, Belgium, whilst being driven back to his home at 6:30 in the early evening, the ex-prime minister of Greece, Loukas Papadimos was injured in a successful high-impact letter-bomb attack that remains unsolved and unclaimed. The incident took place in central Athens, a few blocks from the Athens Polytechnic in the central part of that city. The device detonated inside an armoured-car with accompanying police security detail, and humiliated those security services and the authorities who shut down the area containing the vehicles transporting Papadimos, beginning a counter-terror investigation.

Loukas Papadimos is now a senior economist, former governor of the Bank of Greece and former vice-president of the European Central Bank. The letter-bomb arrived at his home after undergoing checks which did not detect the explosive material. Two security officers serving as driver and bodyguard to Papadimos were also injured in the explosion. The explosion of the device inside the customised vehicle added to the pressure of the bomb, leading to injuries to Papadimos’ eyes, chest, abdomen and legs and he was brought to the hospital for surgery for the non-life threatening wounds. The other victims of the bomb also were taken to hospital suffering less severe injuries. The attack was hailed by the authorities as the worst act of violence against a senior figure in the Greek establishment in decades.

The Greek State is terrified that the operational methods have developed and evolved to defeat their security apparatus. If this high profile target can be reached then all of them are in reach.

Technocrats, ticks, parasites – The violence and fear will come to your homes as you try to inject it into ours – Long live anarchy.

Kiev, Ukraine: Anarchist Action at the Belarusian Embassy in Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners in Belarus

Monday, September 25th, 2017

On September 23, a group of Kiev anarchists held a picket outside the Belarusian embassy in solidarity with the anarchist prisoners. Activists unfurled a banner that said “DEATH TO THE DICTATOR!” and hung an effigy of Lukashenko on the fence of the embassy. At the moment, the Belarusian regime is holding anarchist comrades Dimitry Polienko and Kirill Alekseev in their dungeons.

We demand the release of all Belarusian political prisoners and express solidarity with their struggle for freedom against the dictatorial regime of Lukashenko. The death of the dictator is the only thing that will give the Belarusian people the opportunity to breathe freely.

Recently we have learned that the diplomats have already protested in connection with our last action. Anarchists will continue to carry out solidarity actions at the Belarusian embassy and violate the tranquility of the diplomatic corps, as long as there are political prisoners in the prisons of Belarus.

Santiago: Barricades and Clashes 44 Years Since the Military Coup (Chile)

Monday, September 18th, 2017

(13.09.17)

BARRICADES OUTSIDE THE UNIVERSITY OF CHILE FACULTY OF SOCIAL SCIENCES

Encapuchadxs (hooded ones) raised barricades and clashed with FF.EE (Carabineros Special Forces) in the vicinity of the University of Chile (FASCO) in commemoration of the murdered and disappeared during the civil-military dictatorship.

Leaflet found at the scene:

Today we do not simply commemorate our fallen from the dictatorship, we also claim their forms of struggle and organization that serve as an example of subversion against capital, the state and its repressive apparatus.

44 years on from the harshest episode in our history, we rise as the children and grandchildren of those who were persecuted and killed during the dictatorship.

With their same conviction, we promise to never forget their actions, which will live on in the rebellious and combative memory of every revolutionary.

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…)
