CCTV Burnt and Advertising Attacked in Bristol (UK)

Wednesday, August 21st, 2019

CCTV Burnt and Advertising Attacked in Bristol, on the 30th July.

A new LED advertising screen by the M32 motorway in Bristol tells us to “Be On It”… Well, we are!!! The screen was damaged using sling shots. Advertisers want people to focus their attention on shitty corporate messaging instead of concentrating on their driving. We are “on it”, and we are not excited by the products, upgrades ,and the boring lifestyles and aspirations they are selling… We desire damage and destruction… and dream of sabotage.

CCTV was also burnt out at Gaunts Ham Park (a day centre for homeless people in Lawrence Hill). The wiring was destroyed in an expression of rage against the surveillance state that increasingly targets those who do not conform. Using a long pole, and a firelighter attached to a clothes peg, this act was “begging” to be done! More and more people are marginalised, and the housing crisis in Bristol is one aspect of the social war which we are all part of…..

Solidarity with all those resisting it! Especially to: ‘Der Drei Von Der Parkbank’ in Hamburg, and those imprisoned as part of ‘Operation Panico’.

Flaming Barricades in Memory of Murdered Anarchist Carlo Giuliani in Santiago, Chile

Wednesday, August 21st, 2019

Comrades erected flaming barricades made of tires in Santiago, Chile, in protest and in memory of murdered anarchist Carlo Giuliani, who was shot dead by police on July 20th, 2001 in Genoa, Italy during anti-G8 protests.

23-year-old anarchist Carlo Giuliani was killed by Mario Placanica, a cop, during the clashes that broke out after the police attacks in the afternoon. Images show Giuliani throwing a fire extinguisher at a police vehicle before he was shot and then run over twice by the Land Rover during clashes with police forces.


Carlo Guiliani, never forgive, never forget! Fight back!

Incendiary Attacks Against Transantiago Bus and Armed Attacks Against Carabineros in Santiago, Chile

Wednesday, August 21st, 2019

Communiqué received together with the photos on 08/16/2019:

I. Street fight in confluence with the new urban guerrilla

As groups, we use revolutionary violence to make visible the obvious contradictions that the systemic and changing operation of capital implies, depending on the State that legitimizes it as the social order of the day.

Each gear justifies the next and is consolidated as a structure under the protection of a judicial apparatus that condemns many to misery, softens abuses and violations of priests condemned to a life of confinement in palaces, and forgives tax crimes within the reach of 1% of Chilean citizens that conserve 26.5% of the wealth; an executive power in charge of justifying and accelerating the measures that favor the wealthy and thirsty group of tyranny that is on duty; a legislative power in charge of discussing among its caste the daily evolution of millions of people… and always protecting their privileged status in power.

Leipzig, Germany: Eurovia-Vinci Construction Vehicle Torched in Solidarity with Anna and Sylvia

Tuesday, June 25th, 2019

We hate prisons, many of our comrades are held in them, some are tortured, and prisons are at the heart of enforcing the established order. Vinci builds prisons, this vehicle belonged to them, so we wanted to set it on fire. So the train of thought that led to the destruction of the road construction vehicle on June 24 was actually quite simple.

Berlin: Solidarity to the arrested comrades in Thessaloniki (Germany)

Monday, June 24th, 2019

From the urban desert of the danger zone in Friedrichshain we send a signal of our solidarity to Yiannis Dimitrakis, Kostas Sakkas and Dimitra Syrianou. On Monday morning, June 24, we erected a burning barricade on Weidenweg (Street near Rigaer and Liebig) together with a fixed banner (see text on picture). We were waiting with stones to welcome the first patrol car but they needed time to mass up strong forces to enter the area of Rigaer Straße, and we disappeared safe.

Bristol: Solidarity graffiti for anarchist prisoners by Eco-anarchist vandals – FAI/IRF (UK)

Friday, June 21st, 2019

For June 11 – Solidarity for long term anarchist prisoners

Just outside the city limits of Bristol tucked away in the dark is a poultry farm (Ivy Farm) owned by P&S Mitchell LTD. Located in Whitchurch Lane, Dundry, the birds never see the light of day. Despite the CCTV, the grain silo and broiler house were both spray-painted with the words “Animal Prison”.

A new McDonalds restaurant that is not welcome is being built in Fishponds Road, but maybe the “Burger Off!” posters in local’s front windows isn’t enough. Graffiti was sprayed inside the building site – “McWork Prison”.

Vinney Green, hidden in Emersons Green on the edge of Bristol is a special secure detention unit for 10-17 year old “dangerous kids”. The unit holds up to 24 detainees. A large hole was cut in the perimeter fence and then the next inner security fence was broken through by bending back the bars, causing a second human size gap. Then the prison buildings themselves were sprayed with the words “Child Prison”, “Screws Work Here”.

Solidarity to Brian Vaillancourt who is serving a 9 year sentence in the USA for an arson of a McDonalds. To the imprisoned comrades in Italy who are fighting from inside the cells on hunger strike. To the 3 comrades arrested for bank robbery in Thessaloniki, Greece. To Lisa held in Spain. For all the imprisoned anarchists around the world.

Freedom for everyone!

San Francisco: Anarchists attack Indonesian consulate with Paint-bombs against May Day repression (USA)

Monday, June 3rd, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO, EE.UU.: ANARQUISTAS ATACAN EL CONSULADO DE INDONESIA CON BOMBAS DE PINTURA CONTRA LA REPRESIÓN DEL PRIMERO DE MAYO

On June 1, a modest mob of 20+ anarchists in San Francisco carried out an attack in solidarity with our comrades in so-called Indonesia where 600+ anarchists were arrested this May Day. We threw 60 paintbombs and heavily tagged the Indonesian Consulate with circle-(A)s to send a message to the Indonesian government that despite the distance between us and our comrades, the State is not safe and will always be attacked.

The actions of the Indonesian comrades, simple gestures of paint on walls, resonated with us. In the afterimages of their act, and in their call for solidarity, we recognized friends across the dying ocean. Even more than expressing our contempt for the Indonesian State, we want to convey our love to the comrades struggling within and against its false borders. Ferocity and Strength to those facing repression and those on the run. (more…)

Berlin, Germany: For a Black May – Attack Against Securitas by ‘Free Foxes’ FAI-FRI

Saturday, June 1st, 2019

“Burn all prisons, with or without walls!” – The call for a Subversive May, as an extension of the proposal for an Anarchist May 1st in Berlin, is understood by us as a call to extend the attack on different levels. We agree with the idea not to confine ourselves to one day but to constantly and unpredictably attack the functioning of existing society and prove that its security is an illusion.

The apparatus of power includes not only the murderers of the State, but also the mercenaries of the private security companies. Securitas vehicles once parked undisturbed in the GESOBAG housing estate where they act as security guards to prevent the intervention of cops during conflicts with tenants or tensions with the property management. Securitas is also engaged in surveillance work in prisons and public spaces worldwide. (more…)

Athens, Greece: Responsibility Claim for the Arson Attack against Eurobank branch

We were taught that everything is commodity, everything can be exchanged. We didn’t understand the small print of history: that we are commodity too; working power that is exchanged with peanuts, prayers and curses, and a daily reverence to alienation, to the shattering of every human dignity. We referred to the wage slavery as our highest value and intention. We didn’t feel the waves of history carving our skin, we didn’t feel the razor blades of political economy chiseling our motion.

We ‘ve shown discipline to our times’ teachings, which are nothing more than the dominant narrative that wants us producing and consuming machines, that wants for itself the monopoly of the decision about what is included and what is excluded by its normativity. A dominant narrative by a dominant world that leaves its bloody marks on us everyday, fracturing the individual, feeding it with oppression and neuroses, killing every desire for experimentation and vitality and replacing them with miserable micro-rivalries and intrigue, disguising the emptiness.

A visit to an under-construction boutique of luxury apartments in Athens (Greece)

Friday, May 24th, 2019

Source of translation + pictures : https://athens.indymedia.org/post/1597841/

Tourism grows like flowers in the spring, security cameras appear like leaves to protect the peaceful citizens. Everything must be clear, beautiful and in developmental path. The appearance of the city should fit into the list of Aegean Airlines. Tourists do not need a lot, some chain stores and hipster coffeeshops, a good guide to explaining which places to avoid, and something that fits into the “authentic Greek experience”. We look forward to the next group of tourists who will take a selfie around the Acropolis.At the same time, our neighborhood degrades slowly. People who can not respond to the increase of rent price are either forced to find another home to stay or are forced to comply with the new rules. At the same time, investors are exacerbating the situation as they buy old houses, which are being demolished and, in their place, they are building luxurious housing estates. Apartments renovated for short-term rent (AIRBNB) as well as public spaces and parks are privatized reducing free and open spaces. The game is as old as the same city is listening to the name of private property . The rule is also simple: whoever does not own, will pay, whoever does not pay will be expelled. People who are not part of the capitalist machine, little illegal sellers and homeless people, illegal graffiti and political posters, life in general, and things that can not be sold will disappear. We know very well that nothing will be given to us because we do not belong to the owners’ side. We know that we do not even fit into this suffocating capitalist context, nor do we want to keep up with the logic of bosses and investors. That is why we are fighting against their expansionist and developmental plans.On Tuesday 9/04, we visited a boutique (as they call it) of luxury apartments, which is in its final stage of implementation, on Kolokotroni street between Koukaki and Petralona. Kolokotroni Street is a street with several old or abandoned houses, and it seems that the crows of the construction company from Glyfada have put it in the goal. During our visit, we put a banner that read: “RICH PEOPLE GET BACK TO YOUR SUBURBS, HOUSING IS NOR A LIFESTYLE NEITHER A PRODUCT, IT’S A NEED (A)”, we throw paint on the freshly painted walls and advertisements of the company, write slogans and open holes or even completely tear apart interior walls. Nevertheless, investors insist on forcing us to a second visit and today they have put cameras thinking that we will stop.

OUTSIDE THE INVESTORS FROM OUR NEIGHBORHOOD AGAINST AIRBNB AND LUXURY APARTMENTS NO ATTACK TOWARDS OUR LIFE WILL STAY WITHOUT ANSWER IF WE DON’T GET ORGANIZED IN ALL NEIGHBOURHOODS, OUR CITIES WILL BECOME MODERN PRISONS

($hile) Claim for two explosive devices placed at the Service of Internal Taxes

Wednesday, May 15th, 2019

Wednesday 8, Black May.

We installed two explosive devices in the building of the Service of Internal Taxes (SII), located at 281 General del Canto Street, Providencia.

In the face of progress and development, materialized today in projects such as TPP-11 and the APEC Summit, we recognize the need to lift different forms of organization, betting on the proliferation of links, spaces and networks that converge in attack and resistance.

With this action we remember the anarchists Mauricio Morales and Zoé Aveilla, who risked everything for a world free of domination.

MEMORY, HONOR AND COMBAT!
LONG LIVE ANARCHY!

Berlin – Arson of a vehicle of the security company Wisag (Germany)

Tuesday, May 14th, 2019


OUR THEORY: communication through PRACTICE. Attack 2
(orginal: https://de.indymedia.org/node/32606)

… The battles against Amazon or Google sites: Rightfully, attacks against the infrastructure of the almost daily mentioned „technological attack“ are carried out with a certain regularity. Often the criticism is directed against the always as more extensive perceived surveillance that seems to prevent us increasingly from becoming rebellious.
To counter this, the nightly action becomes a little more thoughtful, secret or even technically sophisticated each time. In the claims of responsibility it is written for the thousandth time why it is legitimate to attack x,y,z, or why an event a has now been followed by action b, as we also did in the first part of this series (https://actforfree.nostate.net/?p=33432).

Austria: 2 ATMs Burned in Vienna in Solidarity with Lisa

Saturday, May 11th, 2019

On the weekend of 28th and 29th of April, 2 ATMs were burned in Vienna (Austria) as a message of solidarity with the comrade Lisa, who is imprisoned at the moment in Barcelona. She was charged for robbing a bank in Germany.

We don’t want to live in a capitalist world, in which consumption and property are forming the center of being.

An action to strengthen ourselves, so we will never stop attacking these realities in all places – against the domination of capitalism and state, against prison and all other forms of incarceration and oppression

for sticking together and for freedom!
