Attack against the ‘Messe Hamburg’, venue for the OSCE and G20 summits (Germany)

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Also see: Excavator burns in Berlin – against G20-Summit.

Today at 23:00 we placed burning tires at the south entrance of the venue for the OSCE and G20 summits, the ‘Messe Hamburg’. The glass facade on Karolinenstraße was subject to intensive attack with hammers, paint and stones. We decided on this demolition initiative since we reject the summits which are summits for a world that we reject just as much as the planned meetings.

The summits are a symbol of the never-ending cycle of production and consumption for this commodity society which excludes people from social life and includes others. We want to destroy this cycle as well as the summits.

The exhibition halls are practically in the living room of the Schanzen and Karolinen district as the state chairperson of the Greens, Gallina stated and for a long time have been a wrecking ball over the heads of the residents. In the 1950s and 60s the city of Hamburg bought up large areas and many buildings in the Karolinen district and issued a competition which was a premise for the total destruction of the Karos for an expansion of the venue for the ‘Justice Forum’. Along the Feldstraße the construction of a gigantic sports and multi-purpose hall was planned for a long time. When the Hamburg senate gradually moved away from demolition plans in the 1970s, Messe AG tried to continue the demolition and finally the ‘Messe Hamburg’ got new spaces and halls on the edge of the Karolinen district. The new building was flanked by hotel buildings in the Schanzen Park, Schröderstiftstraße and Feldstraße. (more…)

Tired of those who imprison us.
Tired of those who are watching and spying us.

“Attack on the rich in Umbria. And what sort of rich!
From the local press we learn with joy that a few nights ago Prince Emanuele Filiberto of Savoy’s Umbria villa was attacked by unknown ‘vandals’ in Umbertide (Perugia).
In particular the entrance gate was set on fire, and some olive and grape plants were uprooted, stolen or somehow damaged.
Thinking of Gaetano Bresci and today’s anarchists who still believe in direct action, we are spreading what we learned from the local press.

Genoa, Italy – Anarchist comrade Carlo has been sentenced

Carlo, anarchist comrade of Genoa, on November 15 was sentenced to 14 months for incitement as a result of his written statement in solidarity with the action of comrades Alfredo and Nicola [shooting of CEO Roberto Adinolfi of Ansaldo Nucleare as Olga Cell – FAI/IRF].

Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – FAI/IRF : Nemesis Project – An open proposal (Greece)

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

”He who speaks of war, must have a plan…”

The most insidious authority is the one that carries the promise of inclusiveness. This is why we transitioned from monarchy to democracy but not freedom. ”Safety” is a word favored by democracy. The more we hear about “safety”, the more our lives and freedom regress. Worst of all, contemporary power and democracy have elicited the compromise and submission of society almost voluntarily. Democracy operates as a transparent factory that produces social relations. People submit to governmental ideology, mainstream standards and disciplined behaviors and consider that what we experience today (the economic tyranny, the extortion of wage slavery, the dictatorship of the spectacle, the technological surveillance) are the inevitable natural world order.

But even in a pervasive authority, bosses, officials, managers and proprietors will always exist. Nowadays, the visibility of people in power is particularly clear. Politicians, businessmen, ship owners, publishers, journalists, judges and police officers are the persons in authority. The Nemesis Project aims to attack those persons. The Nemesis Project is our turn to make fear move into the backyard of the enemy.

Instead of attacking impersonal symbols of justice, we think that it is very important to transpose our hostilities to the personal environment of the enemy, their homes, offices, hangouts and vehicles. We know that to authority ”nobody is irreplaceable” but we also know that a personal hit against one of them would instill fear in another 100. We create a legacy of fear for their kind and whoever becomes their replacement. It is our own minimum counterweight in balancing the terror controlled by the enemy. In balancing the terror caused by the murders of workers by their bosses, the accidental shootings by cops, the thousands of years in prison sentenced by judges, the lies by journalists, the laws and the orders by politicians. In all of these cases, the enemy has a name and an address.

Attacking them proves that people in authority are not invincible. At the same time, instead of confining anarchist insurrection in incidents of occasional conflict with cops, we can make revolution a permanent component of our daily lives by discovering those that hide behind orders and decisions which govern our lives, by studying their moves and routes and by organizing our own offensive cells which will respond to the challenges of authority. We do not anticipate a social short-circuit that will lead in mass mobilizations, but we become the accelerators of history through our actions, by creating the dilemma ”with authority or with freedom”. We create spaces and eras where history is written by our own hand and does not just happen. Anarchist urban guerrilla is a way of looking life straight in the eye, in order to form an authentic collective ”we”. It is the construction of an anarchist process of liberation with courage, consistency and determination. Our actions are not evaluated in relation only to the blow against the enemy but also to the possibility of changing our own lives.

The Nemesis Project is an international proposal to create a list with the names of people in authority so that we can attack them where they feel safe, on the sidelines… at their own houses. The bomb explosion at the house of District Attorney G. Tsatani was the first attack, the first act of the Nemesis Project. We share this plan with all the FAI-IRF cells and all the anarchists of action across the world, wanting to start a dialogue on the diffusion of the anarchist struggle. And we know that the best dialogue for the assessment of an action can be no other than a new action…

Through the Nemesis Project we salute all our comrades that are held captive in the cells of democracy across the world and are no longer by our side. It is especially dedicated to the members of the CCF Olga Economidou, George Polydoros, Gerasimos Tsakalos, Christos Tsakalos, our anarchist comrade Angeliki Spyropoulou and the Italian comrades of FAI Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai.

To all those who did not bury the axe of war…

Berlin: Attack against arms company Thales (Germany)

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

It is getting warmer, concerning the preparations for a hot July against the G20-Summit. In the night from 11th to 12th November property of the Thales Company was destroyed.

Thales is one of the eleven biggest armaments companies with an annual sales of 14 billion Euros and above this part of some technology programs, like the satellite range Galileo.

Initially conceived only for civil use, like smartphones, navigation systems, etc. decided the European Parliament in July 2008, that this technic should be available to the European Security- and Defense Politics (ESVP). Thales developed the project „Watchkeeper“, too. On commission for the British Forces an unmanned drone (Thales Watchkeeper WK450) was produced. They got ready in 2012 and flew until 2014 some 140 times over Afghanistan and were consistently upgraded in 2016. Since this year it is possible to load the drone with a 2-kg-warhead and laser- and GPS-control. At last the technology from Thales can kill directly. (more…)

Attack against Deutsche Telekom in Berlin (Germany)

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Eight month before the G20 – Summit in Hamburg, clandestine connections carry out their attacks against the current order in whole Europe every night. Mostly without knowing each other, our fires find similar targets in the hotspots of anarchist subversion, which are placed over the state-owned construct of the European Fortress. Often in a local frame of reference and too rare with the perspective of an international sabotage against the instruments of dominion.

So is the net of people, aggressive and poised to attack, always on the search for opportunities to direct the attacks to a common focus. We should have more courage to arrange to meet us, to travel in order to find places were we get in exchange of ideas and multiply our related experiences. But we want to conduct actions as well in the places where we live, which build relations above the local and specific context, which ignore temporary borders and get incalculable with it. (more…)

Anarchist arson of council vehicle in South Shields, Tyneside (UK)

Friday, November 18th, 2016

An anonymous person (anarchist) set fire to a council vehicle in Pine Avenue, South Shields (Tyneside) in the early hours of Wednesday 9th November 2016. There was no media coverage at all of this fire.

This van was set alight as a direct attack against the council, local authority and councilors to cause disruption and cost money. The normal working class person in the U.K. is getting poorer each month and finding it harder to survive, meanwhile the rich fat cat councilors get richer by means of parking tickets, fines for dropping litter, putting a bin out at the wrong time and other so called offences.

Apoist Youth Initiative attack fascist organizations in London (UK)

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

The Apoist Youth Initiative has attacked a London-based organization that is close to Diyanet İşleri Başkanlığı (Presidency of Religious Affairs) and the Turkish Islamic Society in Newington Green / London.

The 30 youths who attacked these two fascist organizations declared that they had targeted them because of their dirty policies against the Kurdish freedom movement.

Both organizations were bombarded with fireworks, the windows were smashed and ‘Turkey = ISIS (DAESH)’ was spray painted on the walls.

The young people declared that similar actions would continue.

Anarchist call against the G20 summit in Hamburg (Germany)

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

On the 7th and 8th of July 2017, when the most successful war criminals of the present, the most unscrupulous sweaters of human and nature, the self-titled leaders of this planet, meet in Hamburg, they will not be confronted and thus be revaluated with some demands for better governance or social enslavement.

They will feel the rage of the street, when they are rushing with their convoys through deserted districts and talk about the nightly attacks of the last few weeks.

This call, like so many others at similar meetings, does not want to lose itself in an analysis of the importance of the G-20 summit or the policy of their participants. The injustice of the world has been declared a thousand times, anyone who now feels no urge to act, does not need another text.

We want to speak of those who are already involved in the struggle against capitalism and its exerting states with their conforming societies – so, of US.

Since Seattle in 1999, summit protests were a catalysator of radical resistance; individuals and groups came together, swapped ideas, were standing together behind the barricades and carried the flame of resistance back to their regions. Even the shots of Gothenburg and Genoa, or the numerous infiltrated snitches could not stop the development of a Europe-wide chaotic network of autonomous / anarchist / antiauthoritarian tendencies.

Then the criticism of event hopping came up, as if someone had pleaded for it to operate as a riot tourist in any city. The protests against the G – 20 in Cannes and Nice 2011 were prepared in this champagne flush of some movement managers. Everything should become different, better, more political. At that time no conclusion or analysis was spread afterwards – the resistance had simply failed, only the usual alibi NGOs played their program.

So now it’s Hamburg and the responsible persons in the murderous headquarters of the secret services, police authorities and military commandos are tearing their hair. They fear that We are coming. But we do not have a leadership that can be eliminated, our resistance does not depend on the cadre behavior of some individuals. Perhaps nothing will happen if you, who is reading this text right now, will not get active. Do not expect others to prepare something for you, so that you just have to jump up.

For sure there will be a big demonstration of the left idiots, who want to play their democratic ritual, as a certain Mr. Marx or Lenin applied to them 150 years ago. And maybe we will be there, too, or at the edge or behind the lines of the cops. There is still plenty of time to think about and prepare this.

However, we are calling for a campaign in the run-up – against any form of power. We want to destroy, by July 2017 (and if only symbolically …) the rule of patriarchy over women, the rule of the states over their borders and urban centres, the rule of labor over our time, the rule of money over our social behavior, the domination of the goods about our lives, the rule of the cops over the fear of repression in our minds.

In Hamburg and in every village, an infinite number of targets are suitable for destruction, so we should start now with it. So that in July 2017 the alienation between the world of the G – 20 and the rest has become so great, that we no longer need summits to come together. The militant campaign against the G8 in Heiligendamm 2007 could serve as a model, because it also gave, apart from pointless preliminary proceedings, a new generation of activists through self-determined clandestine actions and the fleeing cops from the hail of stones in Rostock, a feeling of their own strength and the possibilities of horizontal organization.

In addition we also call for a theoretical deepening of our practice, in which the presence or absence of anarchy should be tested for revolts, as recently in France, spectacles such as in Frankfurt in March 2015, rituals such as on May 1, or in the everyday neighborhood policy and in the fight against nazis.

Because everywhere where we are not present we cannot complain about the dominance of reformists. And where there are only empty phrases with an A available, it makes the superficial chattering of a “consensus of actions” heard with following distancing. Such a discourse would have to go beyond the hitherto (welcome) brief G – 20 references in the responsibility claims.

Our resistance against the G-20 summit does not want to be „victorious“ in the sense of preventing this event. It just could be the beginning of something that could also start on any other day: The self-empowerment of the individual over the existing and the (self) organization in collective structures. But just a call to that one would hardly pay attention. Therefore,

Attack G-20 summit!

Throw Hamburg into chaos!

Destroy the European fortress!

Attack against the Union of European & Turkish Democrats office in Grevenbroich by Apoist Youth Initiative (Germany)

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2016

uetdsmash

Update: Apoist Youth Initiative call for resistance to intensify in Europe

We, the Apoist Youth Initiative NRW – Revenge Team Sehîd Alîsêr Firat, claim the attack against the UETD (Union of European & Turkish Democrats) office in Grevenbroich on 28.10.16. This attack was revenge for the execution of two YJA-Star guerrilla fighters. They were executed by the Turkish military after being captured.

The execution of the two guerrilla warriors is symbolic of all ongoing attacks by the Turkish state against the will of the free women in Kurdistan. Through the publication of the video of their execution, the identity of the free women is to be shamed and humiliated. In the video it is clearly visible that the soldiers are using German G3 rifles. Everyone can clearly see in this video that the German state is on the side of the Turkish state in the war against democracy in the Middle East, in the war against the free women.

We repeat again: We will continue to attack all the institutions of the Turkish state until the dictator Erdogan is overthrown, Kurdistan is liberated and women gain their freedom. We are warning all German supporters of the Turkish state one last time: If you do not stop supporting fascism in Turkey, we will also attack you.

Jin Jiyan Azadî!
Bijî Serok Apo!
Long live international solidarity!

Nemesis Project : Athens – Conspiracy of Cells of Fire take responsibility for the bombing at the home of the Judge Georgia Tsatani / Conspiración de las Células del Fuego reivindica ataque con bomba contra casa de fiscal (Grecia)

Friday, October 14th, 2016

NEMESIS PROJECT
FIRST ACT

We claim responsibility for attacking the house of the district attorney Georgia Tsatani, in Ippokratous street in Athens city center, next to the Exarhia police department.

We knew that G. Tsatani has a police escort and that she is a guarded target, but this didn’t stand in our way to accomplish our attack.

We chose a symbolic action with only material damage as a sole purpose, but the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire won’t be limited to that…

We have two reasons for choosing this particular district attorney.

The first one is that G. Tsatani is a member of the para-judicial network whose job is to take out of sight case files that impinge the interests of the business and politics mafia (with a view to profit of course). She is the judicial vanguard of her masters.

The apex of her tainted career is the Vgenopoulos case, where G. Tsatani closed the case, aiding him to be discharged of his certain conviction. Her venality by the businessman Vgenopoulos pumped up more her invisible para-judicial account. These inconspicuous courtesies of businessmen can built the villas of the judges as an exchange for their “justice”.

Another sample of this district attorney’s writing, that is being kept diligently secret from the media, is Meimarakis’ case. Georgia Tsatani is the one who took on the case file regarding the equipment and the bribes of Vagelis Meimarakis, the former minister of national defense back then and she made sure to “forget” to send these files in the parliament, with her sole purpose being to cover for him. The exchange of this conciliation was the placement of Tsatanis’ daughter and husband as minister candidates in New Democracy on Meimarakis’ presidency.

Georgia Tsatani was involved in the Vatopedi case, making clear once again the mafia-like partnership between Church and Justice, as well as in many other famous cases that she would “chop off” in order to conceal and protect the interests of authority.

The second reason for choosing to attack the district attorney Georgia Tsatani was her participation in the judicial thralldom of our comrades’ relatives.

G. Tsatani was the one who viewed as unacceptable one of the applications of release by Evi Statiri, who is the wife of Gerasimos Tsakalos, member of the C.C.F. Thus, she contributed in the anti-guerrilla campaign and in one of the most immoral extortions against anarchist revolutionaries.

The vengeful obsession of the judges against the families of our comrades is a choice that all judges involved will be asked to pay and at a great cost. We have remembrance and most of all patience, persistence and diligence…

We are dedicating this action to the imprisoned members of C.C.F, Gerasimos Tsakalos, Christos Tsakalos, Giorgos Polydoros and Olga Economidou.

We are sending our solidarity to the anarchist comrade Aggeliki Spyropoulou, to all unshakeable political prisoners that lie in the cells of the Greek Democracy, as well as to the Italian comrades Alfredo Cospito, Nicola Gai and the anarchists persecuted in Italy within the undertaking “scripta manent” against F.A.I.

Soon the complete version of this proclamation will follow, as well as our initiative for “Nemesis” Project.

We will be back…

Conspiración de las Células del Fuego reivindica ataque con bomba contra casa de fiscal.

[“Reporte” por Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras]

Con un comunicado subido a internet el grupo de guerrilla urbana anarquista “Conspiración de las Células del Fuego” se atribuyó la responsabilidad por una bomba que explotó el día miércoles 12 de octubre en la casa de la fiscal G. Tsatani en el centro de Atenas, cerca de la estación de policía de Exarchia.

En el comunicado – disponible hasta ahora solo en griego- se detalla que el ataque se realizó aun a pesar de que la fiscal contaba con protección policial y que la bomba buscó generar daños materiales, pero que los ataques no se limitarán solo a eso. También se mencionan los motivos para centrar el ataque en la fiscal Tsatani, siendo uno de ellos su participación en el encarcelamiento de lxs familiares de lxs miembrxs presxs de CCF. El comunicado menciona más específicamente el rol jugado por la fiscal en el secuestro judicial de Evi Statiri (actualmente en la calle), quien es la compañera amorosa del compañero Gerasimos Tsakalos (miembro de CCF actualmente encarcelado en el módulo subterráneo de la prisión de mujeres de Koridalos).

Según la prensa griega, el ataque fue precedido por una llamada anónima de advertencia y la bomba explotó aproximadamente a las 23.45 horas del miércoles.

A continuación se pueden leer algunos extractos del comunicado a la espera de una versión en inglés que permita una mejor traducción al español:

PROYECTO NEMESIS

PRIMER ACTO

Asumimos la responsabilidad por el ataque a la casa de la fiscal Georgia Tsatani en la calle Hipócrates, en el centro de la ciudad al lado de la estación de policía Exarchia.

Sabíamos que Tsatani tiene escolta policial (…) pero esto no fue impedimento para instalar nuestra ofensiva. Elegimos un acto simbólico destinado únicamente a daños materiales, pero en el futuro la Conspiración de Células del Fuego no se limitará a eso…

La elección de esta fiscal en concreto fue por dos razones principales.

La primera razón es que Tsatani es miembro del circuito (…) que se compromete a hacer “desaparecer” los archivos que afectan los intereses de los empresarios y de la mafia política (con fines de lucro, por supuesto). Es la vanguardia judicial de los patrones.

(…)

La segunda razón por la que elegimos golpear a la fiscal Tsatani fue por su participación en el secuestro judicial de los familiares de nuestrxs compañerxs (…) por lo que también contribuyó a su vez con la campaña judicial anti-guerrillera (…).

La furia vengativa de los jueces hacia lxs familiares de nuestrxs compañerxs es una opción por la que pagarán un alto precio (…)

Tenemos memoria y, sobre todo, paciencia, persistencia y consistencia…

Dedicamos esta acción a lxs miembros encarcelados de CCF Gerasimos Tsakalos, Christos Tsakalos, Georgio Polidoro y Olga Economidou.

Enviamos nuestra solidaridad a la compañera anarquista Angeliki Spyropoulos, a todxs lxs presxs políticxs no arrepentidxs en las celdas de la República griega y a los compañeros italianos Alfredo Cospito, Nicola Gai y lxs anarquistas perseguidxs en Italia dentro de la operación “Scripta Manent” contra la FAI.

Pronto lanzaremos todo nuestro manifiesto y propuesta para el ‘Nemesis’.

Volveremos…

Bloomington, Indiana: Democratic Party campaign headquarters disrupted in solidarity with 9/9 prison strike (USA)

Saturday, September 10th, 2016

On September 8th, in solidarity with prisoners taking action for the 9/9 prisoner strike, about a dozen people disrupted activities at the local Democratic Party campaign headquarters. Standing outside the building, people held a large banner announcing the prisoner strike while a statement was read and others passed out handbills. Additionally, a group of people went inside the headquarters to yell chants, clog sinks, tear down campaign posters, and scatter handbills. An American flag in the office found its way into a toilet. People walked away from the building tossing handbills in the air.

From the handbill scattered at the action:

As the ruling party, the Democrats and their Bureau of Prisons are responsible for the conditions in federal prisons and everyone being held hostage inside of them.
They profit from the labor of prisoners and contract with countless companies and industries that do the same, while prisoners earn as little as a few cents per hour.

They are responsible for the exorbitant prices of phone calls, commissary foods, and other basic necessities in prison. For the mailroom censorship, both institutionalized and arbitrary, of political and other materials. They are responsible for the poor quality of water and food that some must endure for decades, or even the rest of their lives. And for the dismal or nonexistent health care for prisoners when these conditions start to take their toll.
