Atentado incendiario a bus del transantiago y ataque armado a policías + Reivindicacion de la “Coordinadora Informal-Grupúsculo Iconoclasta” (Chile)
Monday, May 6th, 2019
El 18 de abril de 1989 los jóvenes Ivan Palacios (19) y Erick Rodriguez (20) tras participar activamente en un grupo de acción y resistencia a la dictadura que se encontraba infiltrado desde sus comienzos, se disponen a colocar una carga explosiva en un transformador de luz ubicado en Avenida San Pablo con Radal, en las cercanías de la población Simon Bolivar.
La acción estaba avisada a efectivos de la CNI (Central Nacional de Inteligencia) quienes prepararon una emboscada donde acribillaron a ambos jóvenes miristas.
Desde entonces en la población Simón Bolívar se recuerda esa fecha con actividades, velatones, manifestaciones y enfrentamientos con la policía. (more…)

MAURICIO MORALES PRESENTE
La madrugada del 22 de mayo de 2009 muere en axión el compañero Mauricio Morales, tras la detonación anticipada del artefacto explosivo con el que pretendía atacar la Escuela de Gendarmería, fábrica de miserables carceleros.
Recordamos la vida del Punki Mauri, la vida que eligió vivir, sus ideas y acciones, las decisiones que lo llevaron a transitar el camino anárquico, con corazón y convicción. Desde la kalle procuramos que siga viva la anarquía, en cada gesto de memoria activa y confrontacional, sin victimismo ni docilidad, haciendo en el acto y la palabra un elemento peligroso para el orden social de los poderosos.
NADA HA ACABADO
por la expansión del caos…
PROKURA KE VIVA LA ANARKÍA
Friday, May 3rd, 2019
For May Day we claim responsibility for the following actions:
-Deflating the tires and painting the windshield of a yuppie housing shuttle bus.
-Throwing paint at the facade of two OCF properties.
-Smashing glass and cutting all non-hydraulic cables of at least four construction machines at the site of a development project intending to manicure a once wild place.
All of our targets are part of the ongoing gentrification of the city.
Solidarity with the comrades in Italy facing repression.
On May Day anarchists aren’t sleeping!

Local newspapers have reported that a TV and mobile phone tower was set on fire in Terragnolo, in the Potrich (Trentino) area on April 16th at around 10PM. Painted slogans reading “Solidarity With Anarchist Prisoners”, “Stop Video Conferencing” (which replaces prisoner transfers to court hearings), “Stop Blocking Mail” and “The Spirit Continues” were found at the site.
Of the four incendiary bottles used to start the fire, only one managed to ignite the cables, the other three that were located inside the electrical transformers failed to ignite due to ‘lack of oxygen’ according to the carabiniers [paramilitary police] in charge of the investigation. A person who lived nearby spotted the flames from the street and notified the fire brigade, however they arrived to late to prevent many of the cables from burning. This location is also part of a region that has been selected to experience the 5G network in the near future.
Technicians were able to restore TV service during the night, however mobile phone reception is still not properly restored.
Freedom For All,
Fire To The Prisons

Athens, Greece: Grenade Attack Against the Russian Consulate by FAI / FRI Revenge Cell ‘Mikhail Zhlobitsky’
Friday, April 19th, 2019
We assume responsibility for the grenade assault on the Russian Consulate on Tzavella Street in Chalandri [suburb in Northern Athens] on March 22.
Each state seeks continuity, which is of particular importance both for its existence and for the preservation and expansion of its vital space. We define the vital space of a state structure as a concept that raises every economic and spatial interest. Applying this policy to us is what we commonly call imperialism. This policy is not a strategic choice of a state, but it is indistinguishable from its very existence. Automatically, each state applies or follows the imperialist policy of an alliance in that country. This position comes to overthrow the rhetoric of the holy fellowship of the smaller ones in dynamic states towards the more powerful ones, which the left has been trying to make for years and parts of the anarchist space embraces. Over the years, many alliances have been built up and, as a result, many skirmishes, depending on the interests at stake. Under the veil of these inter-axiomatic contrasts in combination with the economic and political conjuncture, discrepancies in the dynamics of each state are created or adjusted. Relationships between states have always been a dynamic condition that is modified on the subject rather than a static situation. (more…)

Comment from the team Effect Monroe
[presented in Russian social media]
We watched the film “Popular Front.Ukrainian militant anarchists.” Production, directorial work are at a high level and do not cause questions, but we will comment on the focus of journalists on one anarchist group, Revolutionary Dia. Let’s go over the news headlines from Ukraine for 2018, which are also available in English:
05/19/2018 Anarchists burned the crossover / anarchist revenge group “Svyatoshinskaya golytba”
05/21/2018 In Kiev, anarchists set fire to Lexus,belonging to deputy chairman of the EPU Grachev / “Fedos Schus” cell
09/19/2018 In Kiev, anarchists attacked the training center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs/ Ilya Romanov cell
In addition, the anonymous attacks in 2018, mentioned in the film Revolutionary Anarchists in BUR’18:
01/04/2018 Arson of municipal police cars
04/15/2018 The explosion at the Kyivenergo building
06/22/2018 Arson of the Oschadbank branch.
The rebels regularly declared about attacks in Ukraine until 2018 – while the communiques are signed by different groups: in half of the cases, these actions are claimed by FAI–IRF, the “Informal Anarchist Federation”. This is an active trend in Ukrainian anarchism which is quite different from the ideology of “Revdia” – therefore, in our opinion, the authors of the film should have taken this into account.

[B] OUR THEORY: communication through PRACTICE. Attack 1
In “The Autism of the Insurgents“, Alfredo Cospito addresses, among other things, the question of theory formation in declarations of action. Not only recently, but increasingly again, people have referred to each other in their explanations of actions [en]. In the process, theoretical aspects have been and are still being written – even if only to a limited extent in most cases.
The connection between theory and practice is an old, but also always recent problem, which active people will be confronted with over and over again. So why not end the false conflict about the balance between theory and practice once and for all? Why not drive Cospito’s communication via actions to its extreme? Why not simply convey theory in the form of practice with the corresponding explanations?
Theory as practice. To ensure that the people who discuss the practice are the ones who are responsible for it and not some secluded intellectuals who do not get tired of making suggestions without acting practically themselves.
A springboard for these intellectuals far short of any practice who never tire of preaching the need for democratic and “peaceful” reforms in a world of social war is, in 2019, the university. As an introduction to the field of theory as practice, we have selected the Institute for Social Sciences of the Humboldt University Berlin as a place of knowledge production. During the night from the 27th to the 28th of
march we smashed a few windows of the ivory tower of the elite university to make clear that the battle for society will ultimately be fought on the streets and not in the lecture hall.

29 DE MARZO
DÍA DE LXS JOVENES COMBATIENTES
El 29 de marzo es el día en que la memoria combativa se vuelve acción a través del presente contínuo de la confrontación anárquica con el mundo del poder y la autoridad. Es un momento en que el choque con las fuerzas del dominio recuerda que en dictadura y democracia el Estado oprime, tortura, asesina y encarcela y que en todo contexto histórico las voluntades indomesticables acechan los planes de los opresores para ponerlos en peligro y forjar su destrucción.
Desde su origen en dictadura conmemorando a los hermanos Vergara Toledo, el 29 de marzo constituye una fecha que no ha podido ser pacificada, recuperada ni exterminada por la institucionalidad y el reformismo, por lo que el poder y su prensa servil intentan despolitizar su conmemoración. A la vez, cada año se levantan actos conmemorativos, barricadas y ataques a la policía en los que participan enemigxs declaradxs del poder junto a la juventud salvaje de barrios y poblaciones.

The time has come to elaborate further on our attack on Holosiivskyi district court in Kiev.
Among the commentaries on the attack, we’ve read more than once that some people don’t understand our motives. They don’t get how does Azat Miftakhov’s arrest in Moscow have anything to do with a courthouse in Kiev. We’ll try to explain, because it’s important to get this seemingly obvious message across.
Choosing the target:
We decided to go for a government court building. A lot of us have a good idea of what exactly is a courthouse today. Who among us hasn’t been in court? Who’s never had a friend or acquaintance on trial? Everyone felt this utter disdain for judicial robes, those who are fainter of heart – even fear. Why do we have to respect and accept them? Someone gave them the right to take our freedom and our lives, so now they sit there, up high, when you are languishing underneath, behind bars, with a watchdog in uniform hovering over you. (more…)

„Encore une fois, ce sont pas ceux qui le méritent qui se retrouvent dos au mur.

On the morning of March 12, 2019, the police reported on the attack on the court.
The day before, we – the anarchists of Kiev, held an action of solidarity with the anarchist Azat Miftakhov detained in Moscow.
Once in prison, in the clutches of the punitive system, our comrades should be aware of the support, which is usually expressed in the form of concerts, pickets, letters… But more important is the confidence that their cause continues to live, confidence in the justification and consistency of their struggle. We do not care about Azat’s involvement in explosives and other episodes, because anyone who calls himself an anarchist is already guilty, and deserves punishment from the point of view of the state.
The best we can do for them is to continue the struggle and resistance. To make it clear that repression is not only a reason to show solidarity out of a sense of comradely duty, but also to once again realize the need for the complete destruction of the state and all its manifestations. What could be better for a comrade than to realize that the repressions only radicalized and rallied the movement, and his being in captivity is not in vain and, whatever may happen to him, his cause will live until the complete victory of the social revolution.
This time we decided to use the method of attack, unpopular for this case, among anarchists – firing from a rifle firearm. We have made 15 shots at the windows of the judges of the Goloseevsky district court of the city of Kiev.
The angle and place of fire were not chosen by chance, we took all measures to avoid casualties among the not involved population. Only persons belonging to power structures, representatives of the authorities and conscious citizens who decided to prevent us could suffer. Accidental victims were excluded.
Freedom to Azat! Comrades anarchists, it’s time to move from protest to resistance! With solidarity and partisan greetings!

(Graz/Austria) – Car of Sodexo set on fire
In the darkness of the 6th of march we set a car of the company Sodexo in Graz on fire. Sodexo makes a profit with the deportation system by delivering shitty food to deportation centers. All companies that profit from this industry are our enemies and just deserve our hatred.
We feel connected to all accomplices who are fighting against the domination in this world.
Above all, those behind bars and those who support them, we want to show our revolutionary solidarity through this fire!
Through the walls we specifically send a burning hug to all recently detained anarchists in Turin, Trento and Rovereto. SILVIA, NICCOLO, BEPPE, ANTONIO, STECCO, RUPERT, AGNESE, SASHA, POZA, NICO, GIULIO tutti liberi!
We also send a burning greeting through the bars to Loić! We hope that you will feel supported by such acts in your unbending attitude.
For this action, we used fire accelerators that we filled into emptied beverage cans. We put the cans on the floor under the tires of the car. After 5 to 10 minutes, the tires burn and the car flares off.
Fire to Sodexo!
Fire to all cages!
(Graz/Austria) – Karre von Sodexo angezündet
In der Dunkelheit des 6.3. haben wir in Graz eine Karre der Firma Sodexo angezündet. Sodexo macht mit dem Ausschaffungssystem Profit indem es Abschiebeknäste mit schaebigem Essen versorgt. Alle Firmen die aus dieser Industrie Profit schlagen sind unsere Feinde und verdinen unseren Hass.
Allen Kompliz_innen die gegen die Herrrschaft dieser Welt kämpfen fühlen wir uns verbunden.
Vor allem jenen hinter Gittern und jenen die sie unterstützen möchten wir mit diesem Feuer unsere revolutionäre Solidarität zeigen!
Durch die Mauer senden wir speziell eine freurige Umarmung an alle kürzlich Inhaftierten Anarchist_innen in Turin, Trient und Rovereto. SILVIA, NICCOLO, BEPPE, ANTONIO, STECCO, RUPERT, AGNESE, SASHA, POZA, NICO, GIULIO tutti liberi!
Ebenfalls senden wir einen feurigen Gruss durch die Gitter an Loić! Wir hoffen das du dich durch solche Taten in deiner unbeugsamen Haltung unterstützt fühlst.
Für diese Aktion verwendeten wir Brandbeschleuniger den wir in entleerte Getränkedosen umfüllten. Die Dosen stellten wir auf den Boden unter die Reifen der Karre. Nach 5 bis 10 Minuten brennen die Reifen und die Karre fackelt ab.
Feuer für Sodexo!
Feuer allen Käfigen!

Berlin: Our propaganda remains the attack: cops are murderers!
No words of justification are necessary for that, what has happened to a cop station in Berlin on the morning of February 27, 2019. All those who were already handcuffed, humiliated by the cops, sexually assaulted, beaten, driven through the streets, jailed, or detained understands our language. Our fire speaks to those who have understood or learned that it is always a danger to life and limb to fall into the hands of the state. Many who were dragged in patrol cars or cop stations did not leave them alive.
We do not hope for justice, nor for more humanistic cops. Instead, we deepen our enemy determination and draw a line that is appropriate to the quality of social conflicts. There is nothing to discuss with the killers and their collaborators. Not even if you present yourself all year round as friends and helpers at their police congress.
Nothing is forgotten and we are not ready to forgive. Instead of celebrating its own role as a victim, it is necessary to organize further attacks against the cops and to disassemble their sense of inviolability step by step.
Part of this we have contributed with our act. The casualness with which the cops and the press deal with the attack on the building on Invalidenstraße belies their losses. As we ignited the used 60 liters of gas under the canopy of the entrance area, the fire could jam under the ceiling and cause considerable damage there, which will remind them for a long time that they need to expect nothing but our hatred.
We greet Loic in the Hamburg prison and all upright prisoners of the social war and promise them to continue to aim at the pigs.
For Ebuka Mama Subek, who was recently murdered in an Athenian police station. For Oury Jalloh, Hans-Jürgen Rose and Mario Bichtemann, who were killed by pigs in Dessauer. For Halim, Carlo, Dennis and Amed!
For the revolutionary revenge!
Quema de dos vehículos carsharing de “E-move” y “Car to Go”: fuego a la ciudad del Capital. Fuego al Madrid de Ahora Madrid (España)
Friday, March 8th, 2019
En el marco de la semana de “Agitación y propaganda contra la gentrificación y la especulación capitalista y en defensa de la okupación” dos vehículos de las empresas “E-Move” y “Car to Go” fuegon incendiados, en los barrios de Arganzuela y Prosperidad.
Nos encontramos en la consolidación de la última reinvención democrática y de las ilusiones renovadas en las caducas estructuras del Estado y el parlamentarismo. La irrupción en el panorama político de la “nueva política” ha servido al sistema para renovar sus estructuras de dominio y dotarles de un nuevo aire de legitimidad, desgastada tras los años de la crisis. A medida que la vía electoral cobraba fuerza, la agitación en las calles disminuía. Como siempre.
Paralelamente, nos hemos encontrado con la infiltración y convivencia dentro de los llamados “movimientos sociales” de políticos y lidercillos que instrumentalizaban cualquier conato de lucha entre las muchas marcas blancas de Podemos a nivel municipal, en un reparto de la tarta del Poder municipal. Es cada vez más habitual ver a personajes como Errejón en las protestas contra los CIES, parlamentarios en desahucios como el de la calle Argumosa o observar como pululan concejales y otros tipos de políticos por algunos centros sociales okupados o no okupados, en tal o cual asamblea… (more…)

On the night of February 18, a bank ATM in the Usera neighborhood was set on fire. This small action is a sign of encouragement for Lisa, recently moved from Germany to Madrid; for the repression of the G20; the comrades arrested in Madrid on 30 October – accused of burning another Bankia ATM – and for the comrades in Italy, recently beaten in new operations against the anarchist environments in Turin and Trento, as well as for the comrades on trial in the Scripta Manet and Panic operations.
Let the Spanish and Italian states know that anarchist solidarity will not stop. And it will be formed by more than words. Sabotage is easy and simple. In the possibilities of its reproduction is its strength.
Also, this small action serves as a contribution to the week of agitation and propaganda against gentrification, spatial capitalism and in defense of squatting.
Freedom for Lisa, freedom for all!
Long Live Anarchy!
