Rome, Italy: Arson Attack Against Diplomatic Corp and ENI Vehicles

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

When you set out at night with the intention of burning or putting something out of action, interrupting the paralysis inherent in everyday life, you never know exactly what you will find once you are on the street. Which is how it was one night in mid-June when we came across a Diplomatic Corp car and one belonging to ENJOY* parked side by side next to the footpath. If until then, they had been united together in the same shitty existence in service of devastation, power and domination, we could not help but see their willingness to share the same demise together. And so, just like it was with some excavators in France not long ago, we took note of their will by enjoying the sight of the flames that enveloped them.

We hope that despite the high temperatures of recent days that the heat of this fire may bring a smile to all the comrades locked up in prisons, subjected to judicial controls or under surveillance…

To the Argentine comrade Diego Parodi… Strength, hold on!
To those facing investigation for the G20 in Hamburg.
For the prisoners and the accused of Operation Scripta Manent.
For Giova, Ghespe and Paska.


For Anarchy!

*Translation note: ENJOY is a ‘sustainable’ vehicle sharing company run by energy company ENI and public transport operator Trenitalia

Frankfurt: Arson Attack Against Deutsche Bahn – 6 Vehicles Destroyed (Germany)

Friday, July 6th, 2018

06.07.18: Last night we destroyed 6 Deutsche Bahn (German Railways) vehicles near Frankfurt West railway station. We are opposed to German support for the war of aggression by the Turkish government in Northern Syria as well as the ongoing raids and arrests of left-wing activists.

We set fire to six Deutsche Bahn vehicles used for making repairs. We deliberately carried out our action in a way that ensured there was no danger to anybody. Deutsche Bahn is a leading logistics partner of NATO. Dying and killing in the name of our ‘democracies’ is not an option for us. We will continue to side with the revolutionary forces in Syria and elsewhere.

Here in Germany there are enough reasons too, we do not even know where to start with this police state: the complete erosion of what once referred to itself as a constitutional state. Mass public manhunts. The raids against German technology associations because they have a donation account for a legal US email provider and for using an email address that was used to promote protests against the AFD! (Alternative for Deutschland, right-wing populist party)* Or the banning of Linksunten Indymedia. Or the arrests in the Rhine-Main area for alleged participation in the G20 protests. Or the searches in France, because those affected allegedly raised their arms at the G20. What a complete misunderstanding of every situation in the Schanze.**

Berlin: Solidarity with Nantes! Arson Attack Against a Van Belonging to Prison Service Provider SPIE (Germany)

Thursday, July 5th, 2018

05.07.18: The wave of exuberant hatred for the arbitrariness of uniformed individuals spills once more across the borders of France to us. For the last two nights in Nantes, hundreds of teenagers have destroyed shops, set fire to cars and attacked the CRS (Compagnies Républicaines de Sécurité / general reserve of the French National Police) with Molotovs.

Aboubakar was executed on Tuesday night in a suburb of Nantes in his car by a police officer after he was placed under arrest during a vehicle inspection…

The police spread their version that they were in danger and it was in self-defense. It is obvious that the ‘legitimacy’ of the murder that they make public is found only in the self-created legitimacy of the police apparatus. Since we refuse to recognize that law, there can never be legitimacy for execution by a cop. (more…)

New Caledonia: Sabotaging the Mining Industry (Oceania)

Wednesday, July 4th, 2018

On Wednesday, June 27th, 2018, the managers of Société Le Nickel (SLN), a subsidiary of the French company Eramet in New Caledonia, publicly complained about repeated sabotage targeting nickel mining and transportation infrastructure.

The sabotages have all been targeting an 11km conveyor that is used to transport the nickel ore from the deposit to the Kouaoua site (north-east of Grande-Terre) at the seaside, where around 200 people are directly employed. On June 23rd, during the last arson attack against this ‘treadmill’ that is nicknamed The Serpent, a stolen vehicle was placed under the infrastructure and then set on fire.

The financial cost related to these multiple sabotages amounts to 150 million CFP francs (1.25 million euros) for the company.

For the time being, SLN “does not plan to close its Kouaoua center”, from which about 600,000 of the three million tonnes of ore that the company refines at its Noumea plant are extracted each year.

Until now, only one person has been arrested for these serial sabotages, a 31 year old man who was sentenced on June the 19th to 18 months in prison without parole. At the court case he had questioned “pollution” and the “promises” of public facilities that were not kept by SLN.

In New Caledonia, attacks against mining companies do not end in truces. Recently SLN suffered major damage not only to its Kouaoua site, but also at Thio during the transition to the year 2018. Other mining companies, such as Groupe Ballande, lost 5 vehicles and a workshop to the flames in Canala in early January 2018.

Reivindicación de artefacto incendiario en bus del Transantiago (Chile)

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

El lunes 4 de junio instalamos en el recorrido I 01 del Transantiago un artefacto incendiario, que logró su activación pero debido a algún fallo interno no generó el daño deseado. Tras la detonación el chofer baja a los pasajeros y conduce el microbus hacia el terminal de la empresa, donde es periciado por la policía.
Creemos en lo contagioso y reproducible de la acción destructiva, con lo que creamos necesario y tengamos al alcance. Desde la calle, saludamos a lxs grupos e individuxs que han decidido romper la normalidad imperante.
Atacamos en solidaridad con el machi Celestino Córdova, nuevamente en huelga de hambre, desafiando las disposiciones del Estado Chileno y el control de Gendarmería.

Nuestro ataque revive los latidos insurrectos del Punki Mauri, a 9 años de su muerte, la anarquía no acaba ni olvida.

¡Mauricio Morales presente!
¡En solidaridad con lxs presxs de la larga condena!

Claim of incendiary device in Transantiago bus

On Monday, June 4, we installed an incendiary device on Transantiago route I 01. The incendiary achieved its activation but due to some internal failure did not generate the desired damage. After the detonation the driver lowered the passengers out and drove the microbus to the terminal of the company, where it is investigated by the police.
We believe in the contagious and reproducible destructive action, with what we have within reach and for what is needed to create. From the street, we greet the groups and individuals who have decided to break the prevailing normality.
We attacked in solidarity with the machi Celestino Córdova, again on hunger-strike, defying the dispositions of the Chilean State and the control of police.

Our attack revives the insurrectionary beats of Punki Mauri, 9 years after his death, anarchy does not end nor forget.

Mauricio Morales present!
In solidarity with the prisoners with long sentences!

‘Black and Green Arsonists’ take responsibility for Animal Liberation arsons – Green Nemesis #3 – Athens (Greece)

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

Here we reproduce the report of the incendiary attack from ‘Black and Green Arsonists’ – their claim of responsibility for Green Nemesis Act 3. We note that the rhetoric of ‘indiscriminate attack’ can lend itself to the green authoritarianism of the Church of Eco-Extremism, and whilst the attacks don’t possess the attributes of an authoritarian action it is worth being clear. There is a big difference between indiscriminately attacking the enemies and indiscriminately attacking random individuals. The communique has several interesting points about animal/earth liberationist struggle and we are happy to reproduce it. Until all are free.


Anonymous (delayed) report:

On October 28, we made a double hit in the area of ​​Zografou, burning a truck / refrigerator for meat transportation, with an incendiary mechanism. We also attacked a hunter’s car by breaking and burning gasoline in its interior. We also take responsibility for the Green Nemesis Act 3.

We indiscriminately attack what contributes to the incarceration, abuse and misery of animals. Whether this is a cosmetic showcase or a butcher, etc.

ANTHROPOCENTRISM

People from the very old age used the animals for their benefit. With the development of technology and its means, the exploitation of animals grew, while the value of life was undermined. Anthropocentrism is the one that leads millions of animals to death in order to become food, and not only. Workshops full of experimental animals. Also people still use animals for their own fun.

Hamburg: Attack on Russian Visa Center (Germany)

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

Unknown persons destroyed the windows of the Russian visacenter in Kanalstr. 14a, Hamburg, the night of the 22.06. Also “FUCK FIFA!”, “FIGHT REPRESSION!” and”(A)” was spraypainted to the facade.

Since autumn 2017 there happen repressive attacks against anarchists in different Russian cities, in Belarus and on Krim. With torture, intimidation, blackmail and imprisonment they are targeted. At the same time the football worldcup is one of the biggest spectacles of power that is happening in Russia. The rich can enrich themself even more and behind the cameras, all this, as with the Olympic games or summit-meetings, can be used to develop repression and control against maginalised, poor and unwanted social groups and to develop aggressive gentrification.

Freedom and solidarity don’t need Visa!

Berlin, Germany: Incendiary Actions Against Telekom, Deutsche Bahn and Vodafone

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

Berlin, June 2018

Restructuring power via digitization is in full swing. Hardly anything that cannot be complemented by a ‘smart’ in its name and thus a new place in this world has escaped this process. Everything is networked. Cameras, sensors and chips are constantly sending and letting things communicate. ‘Big Data’ is the currency of tomorrow. Even our relationships, actions and thinking are permanently exposed to digital access. Reduced to information, we feed the algorithms of the machines, helping to make the future manageable and controllable.

It’s not always easy to hold on to the possibility of destroying this system as the rapid pace of the technological attack is widening and the net of domination stretches around us. All the more important are the moments of counterattack to reject the powerlessness that is spreading in the face of current developments. So we are all the more pleased that the answers to the misery produced by the colonization of the world via techno-industrial hegemony are found again and again in Berlin. Within the context of the planned Google campus in Kreuzberg, a fight has developed that is not only aimed at the tech giants and their universe, but also at the social level. Self-organization, direct communication and the power of the attack are the means of choice. Various acts of sabotage, such as the one last March by ‘Vulkangruppe NetzHerrschaft zerreißen’ have shown that the infrastructure of the flow of goods, communication and data networks is vulnerable and can be disrupted by arson attacks against cable networks and sensitive radio antennas.

Naarm / Melbourne, so-called Australia: Serco Compound Attacked in Solidarity with Refugees in Detention

Sunday, November 26th, 2017

19.11.17: Tonight, a group of people in Naarm / Melbourne, responding to the call out for 8 Days of Solidarity for Refugees, undertook an action targeting Serco. Serco is a multinational corporation which is directly responsible for the inhumane incarceration conditions faced by refugees, asylum seekers, and detainees, in so-called Australia. Serco is also a major player in the international privatised prison complex.

The group gained access to a central Naarm / Melbourne, Serco compound and immobilised 7 vehicles. The group also left spray-painted messages on Serco compound property, including vehicles, reading “Serco Psycho Scum”, “Serco, profiting from refugee detention- this is war”, and “Serco profits from misery, we hold YOU responsible”.

Attack on the passport office of the police in Malmö (Sweden)

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

On the 17th of November, the leaders of the nations of the European Union gathered in Gothenburg for the EU summit. The EU maintains its external borders vigilantly, leading to countless deaths of people trying to enter Europe. Internally, the border controls returned during the latest “refugee-crisis”, and at the Swedish border they are still in place. Borders and deportations protect the rich and powerful of the European societies, at the price of murder and incarceration, and they manifest themselves clearly in passports and police.

The police willingly do the insidious work of controlling the borders and carrying out deportations. At the same time, the EU gives the police forces of the member states extended possibilities for repressive cooperation, enabling them to exchange information and issue arrest warrants for sought-after people across the EU.

The police mobilized massively to protect the EU summit in Gothenburg, so we decided to strike somewhere else, away from their attention.

For these reasons, and many more, we attacked the passport office of the police in Malmö with rocks on the night of the EU summit.

We send warm rebellious greetings to those who fight against borders and nationstates and to those who fought the police on the 30th of September when Nazis were marching in Gothenburg, especially to those who are now jailed or going to trial for the events on that day.

Salatiga: Demo in solidarity with West Papuan struggle (Indonesia)

Freedom for Papua

15 November 2017

Solidarity between various alliances including Libertarian Student Federation (FML), Papuan Student Alliance (AMP) in the small town of Salatiga, at the Satya Wacana Christian University. This solidarity is a nationwide call from the KNPB (National Committee of West Papua) in order to give pressure to the Indonesian government to give rights to West Papuan independence and autonomy. In this case, anarchists and libertarians limited their solidarity for the full autonomy and freedom of West Papua from Indonesian state and not supporting the creation of West Papua as a nation-state.

Anarkis/FML

Salatiga (Jawa Tengah)

Solidaritas antar berbagai aliansi termasuk diantaranya Federasi Mahasiswa Libertarian (FML), Aliansi Mahasiswa Papua (AMP) terjadi di kota kecil Salatiga, tepatnya di Universitas Kristen Satya Wacana. Solidaritas ini merupakan seruan dari KNPB (Komite Nasional Papua Barat) dalam skala nasional untuk menekan pemerintah Indonesia agar memberikan hak untuk menentukan pilihan bangsa Papua Barat. Dalam hal ini, kaum anarkis dan libertarian, membatasi solidaritasnya dalam bentuk otonomi bangsa Papua Barat dan bukannya disintergrasi yang akan menciptakan negara baru lagi.

Tampere: Trucks torched at dairy company (Finland)

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

14.11.17

We wanted to dedicate this action to all our kidnapped friends, or those who have been kidnapped once, by setting fire to 4 trucks from one of the biggest milk companys in finland named valio. The action took place in a city named tampere in the early morning hours of this tuesday. Many of our cell have wanted to target this company for a long time. We think that it is not necessary to explain too much the reason of our selection: the milk industry has a long history of destruction, cruelty and torture on this planet, its ecosystem and their habitants. Like our friends the cows and the forests. Who are cruelly abused and murdered or destroyed by the production of milk.”

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…)

Artefacto explosivo contra la Democracia Cristiana en Ñuñoa es desactivado + Adjudicación de “Amigxs de la Pólvora – Núcleos Antagónicos de la Nueva Guerrilla Urbana” (Chile)

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”
