CAMPAIGN AGAINST POISON IN THE WHOLE OF LOMBARDY –
COMMUNIQUE BY DANAUS PLEXIPPUS NUCLEUS FAI/FRI
ATTACK WITHOUT LIMITS
… For the time being, we used the enemy’s tools against it. We fed civilization with the poison it produces. …
Nicola and Alfredo Cell
[‘Green Nemesis’ project]
CHOICES OF ATTACK
Safety is a recurrent theme in today’s industrialized society, which safe it cannot feel in that it spreads and reverses hatred, violence and poison over itself daily. By periodically establishing the tolerability levels of the cancers that it itself develops, it is attempting to accustom people to accepting them. So ‘fine dust’ is allowed to pile up to within a certain threshold, torture in prison should be limited to denying prisoners any kind of reading inside the most punitive prison units, water is potable only if it contains a given amount of heavy metals… So what is ‘sure’ is just the constant poisoning we are subjected to, it is power alone that establishes the recommended daily dose.
We decided to highlight how unmanageable these limits are today. We overcame those that could tie down anarchist action long time ago, turning it into a mere cumbersome repetition of violent slogans and innocuous practices, as we savoured the beauty of discovering and reinventing new means of attack each time. The limits we are facing today are instead those that establish the safety of an alimentary product. (more…)
Athens: Incendiary gesture in complicity with rebels in France and in solidarity to international anarchist prisoners by FAI/FRI (Greece)

During and after the “social movement”, we’ll never stop following our destructive passions, pursuing our dreams of freedom, sowing the chaos of revolt in the order of authority. “Tout peut basculer”; anarchist newspaper published in Paris
In the early hours of June 9th 2016, we paid a brief visit to the offices of the French insurance company AXA in the centre of Athens and torched one of their vans. We ruled out the possibility of attacking the building with the means that are currently at our disposal, for the simple reason that we wouldn’t have caused considerable damage beyond broken windows and perhaps a small fire. Nevertheless, their vehicle that was parked every night next to their offices gave us a good opportunity to attack them quickly and discreetly.
We attacked a target that’s located in an area where, in addition to patrols, cops are constantly present; we were also aware that the surrounding cafeterias and sex shops are frequented by cops with or without uniform. But it only takes a good preparation to strike every potential target.
We chose to attack AXA as a minimum display of complicity with rebels in France, who are fighting in the streets for more than three months. We make it clear, however, that this is not an act of solidarity with “social movements” or the leftists who ask for law reforms, more democracy and a “fairer” Power; nor with the unions that try to manipulate the revolt to satisfy their own interest; nor with “the poor people” or “the working class” who complain now that the legislation affects their pockets and want the State to guarantee them a return to normalcy and a welfare regime. A normalcy and welfare built on the obedience and servitude of the consumerist mass. (more…)

WE WANT TO COMMUNICATE THE DESTRUCTION OF 13 TELEPHONE BOOTHS OF THE COMPANY TELMEX. TEXLMEX IS A COMPANY THAT IS BUILDING FEDERAL PRISONS IN MEXICO. CARLOS SLIM IS ALSO AN OWNER OF OTHER COMPANIES THAT ARE PARTICIPATING IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE “FAST TRAIN MEXICO-TOLUCA” THAT IS DESTROYING FORESTS AND AQUIFERS. THE SABOTAGE WAS REALIZED THE NIGHT OF JUNE 17 IN CIUDAD NEZAHUALCOYOTL, MEXICO DF.
THIS SABOTAGE IS IN SOLIDARITY WITH RIOTING PRISIONERS IN BARRIENTOS PRISON. IT IS IN SUPPORT OF COMPAS WHO ARE FUGITIVES IN MEXICO: CHIVO, TRIPA AND “COBI”. AND FOR THE COMPA GUSTAVO R. AND FOR DESTRUCTION OF THE PRISONS.
FIRE TO THE COMPANIES THAT ARE BUILDING PRISONS!

Anti-clerical violence has been unleashed with force as one more expression of the anarchic conflict against power and all bastard authority. The impact has been varied, politicians scream for the imposition of new laws and tougher penalties for those who attack order and the symbols of capital. The press plays it role of defamation and talks of social peace, ultimately pro-government. The citizenship, the sheep criticize everything without questioning their rotten enslaved lives and the religious ones cry as always appearing like the good ones in the movie.
We extend and claim the anti-clerical violence because we see the church as one more piece of domination, which is demonstrated by their influence on the policies of social control. Encouraging the power to impose new laws of punishment and fascist morality which are reaffirmed by vain speeches cloaked with a non-existent god that people believe without question for a life sentence that ends in a heavenly paradise. Who can believe in such a story? What a load of shit. (more…)

On the night of June 11th, as a small gesture, we smashed out the windows of the probation office.
The police, courts, and prisons constitute a web of control that seeks to crush human beings, forcing conformity to a social order of hierarchy and exploitation.
While this manifests itself as police murders and the brutalization of prisoners, more and more it takes the role of diffuse repression via systems of home detention, work release, parole, and probation. In each of these systems of self-policing, the ability of collective resistance shrinks to none, isolating those rebels who will not submit to these forms of soft imprisonment.
We can no longer accept the role of judicial power in our lives. We do not care if this takes the form of police cars on our streets, prison walls separating us from our friends, ankle monitors, or daily check ins. It all must go. We attack the system that floods into our lives as a reminder that its sprawl should not be normalized. As forms of repression grow beyond the prison walls it should be met with consistent attacks.
Each act of revolt opens up space for joy in our lives, space to breathe freely.
Against the asphyxiation of prison society, we choose rebellion.
Total complicity with all those in revolt against prison and the state in all their forms.

According to information that appeared in the Greek press, on Thursday June 2nd a parcel bomb was sent to the judge Isadora Poga, who in 2015 rejected the release of Evi Statiri, the wife of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire comrade Gerasimos Tsakalos.
The device contained metal tubes filled with explosives of an unknown origin, screws and pieces of razor blades set to activate via an electrical mechanism, all inserted inside a hollowed-out book that was shipped inside a cardboard box.
According to the Greek press, which parrots the information provided by the police, the judge noticed something suspicious about the parcel and decided to notify the police who confirmed that it was an explosive parcel with the capacity to kill the judge. (more…)

The last days of May, in the centre of Athens, we torched two ATMs of Alpha Bank, as well as an excavator used for the metro line extension in the area of Exarchia.
We perceive the State’s effort to upgrade the control and disciplining mechanism as a way of establishing a consumerist and peaceful normalcy everywhere, and attacking spaces that diffuse anarchist theorisations and practices – which is why we choose to attack every form of Power with all available means.
We also carried out this action in memory of our comrade Mauricio Morales, who was killed on May 22nd 2009; and in solidarity with our incarcerated comrades.
ALL OUR FALLEN COMRADES COME ALIVE

At a time when human zombies nourish their survival with social norms and superficial appearances driven by the legitimacy of Power, essentially legitimising the present miserable life, the conflict with the latter automatically marks an opening up of a field of dialectic to the feelings of the living. Boredom knocks on the door of all of us, and we try to transmute it into its denial. We are exactly there where the wait for a mass uprising has become trite, where the appetite for destruction of the rotten world is identical to our pleasure.
In the early hours of May 27th 2016, we burned two vehicles of the Hellenic Post (ELTA) in Aghioi Anargyroi.
With this action we send a minimum signal of strength to CCF, who is on trial for the escape plan and other cases, and to the rest of the anarchists implicated in these cases as well.
Let’s get more dangerous for Power.

On the morning of May 23rd in complicity with the full moon we decided to attack, in a city taken by police and military, we joined the night which makes us invisible and provides anonymity and secrecy. We torched a Banamex branch by placing tires in front of it and watering them with gasoline. So we illuminated the darkness and struck a blow, it’s a fleeting moment, but it’s a moment we enjoy and that for a few seconds makes us feel a little freer, releasing the fire that slowly eats away at the awful branch and it’s ATMs. We decided to videotape it so that everyone can see that some actions are easy to carry out, to encourage all comrades to take action wherever they are.
It is undeniable, we are everywhere. We see banks and those responsible for them as direct generators of poverty and social inequality. Banks are the temples where the “God” of money comes and goes, where misery is managed, where that “God” is placed above any form of life. (more…)

Newly translated interesting communique via actforfree:
Taking responsibility for the attack in the shopping centre Mall on January 2013 – Athens – Greece
It was more than expected that the choice of that specific target would give plenty of “food” for slander on the State’s side. Did the terrorists want victims? Was their aim to terrorise society? And what did they succeed in doing, what was the point of all this? What ethic and what values can these people have in order to hit a mall, yes indeed a mall! They put little kids in danger?
Anyhow, we were always from the other side… and our question is, which frayed values and what misled ethic tolerates the existence of monstrosities like Malls? The target of course is presented as an organised recreation space for shopping, wandering around and tasteless entertainment. A small oasis in the modern nightmare. But is that really what it is?

Barricadas lunes 23 de mayo, 7am.
El 22 de mayo del año 2009, muere nuestro compañero anarquista Mauricio
Morales, mientras intentaba activar un artefacto explosivo que dejaría
en la escuela de gendarmería de $hile, institución destinada a formar
seres que humillan y torturan han trasgredido la ley de los poderosos.
A 7 años de su muerte abrazamos sus ideas de libertad y de rechazo a
gendarmería y/o cualquier institución o símbolo de autoridad.
La memoria de nuestrxs compañerxs es vital para continuar la lucha
contra este sistema de dominación.
POR LA AGUDIZACIÓN DE LOS CONFLICTOS
POR LA EXPANCIÓN DE LOS FOCOS DE INSURRECCIÓN
QUE SE EXPANDA LA REVUELTA ANÁRQUICA
A 7 AÑOS DE NUESTRO COMPAÑERO MAURICIO MORALES, CONTINUAMOS LUCHANDO
CONTRA TODA AUTORIDAD Y POR LA ANARQUÍA. (more…)

We claim full responsibility for the coordinated arson spree in Myllypurossa, Helsinki in the early hours of 9/5/16, in which 6 cars in the parking lot of some shitty neighbourhood and an excavator on the edges of a construction site were surrendered to the flames of nihilistic vengeance.
We continue with the indiscriminate burning of cars as a manifestation of the misanthropic essence which flows through us, striking at the moral values of society, breaking the suffocating hold of ‘normality’ and causing terror and outrage amongst the detestable hordes of ‘good and respectable citizens’, whose eager compliance with the technological systematization and extermination of all life on earth fills us only with hatred and contempt towards them.
Construction vehicles such as bulldozers, harvesters, excavators and so on serve only to maintain and ‘improve’ the city-prisons and to wreak havoc the earthly environment, so it should go without saying that they will always be targets for our attacks. (more…)

Received and translated by Insurrectionnews on 25.04.16:
In the early hours of April 23 we placed a homemade explosive device on the premises of CORTV Oaxaca, a media / manipulation channel working in the service of the state.
Given the wave of repression against anti-authoritarians that is especially focused on the anarchist movement, we undertook this action as a call to spread the attack against those who we consider our enemies.
We recognize the different faces of those who condemn us to a life of misery and oppression, and their collaborators.
This time it was the media of mass communication, who are noted as instruments of power for social alienation and as an indispensable part of the repressive framework of different sustained operations in recent times against the anarchist movement fulfilling the role of criminalizing our compañeros and their struggle.
Our objective is to break the social peace, exacerbate the conflict and sharpen and expand the revolt.
We stand in solidarity with our imprisoned compas and the fallen of this war sending them fraternal greetings, wishing them to feel the fire and the action.
For Fernando Barcenas, Monica Caballero, Francisco Solar and all anarchist and anti-authoritarian prisoners.
DEATH TO THE STATE!
LONG LIVE ANARCHY!
Informal Anarchic Individualities
La madrugada del pasado 23 de Abril fue colocado un explosivo casero en las instalaciones del canal CORTV Oaxaca, medio de comunicación/manipulación al servicio del Estado.
Ante la ola de represión especialmente enfocada contra el movimiento antiautoritario y/o anarquista, emprendemos esta acción, que a su vez deseamos sea un llamamiento hacia la propagación del ataque contra quienes consideramos nuestrxs enemigxs.
Rconocemos los distintos rostros de quienes nos condenan a una vida de miseria y opresión, y de sus colaboradores.
Esta vez fueron los medios de comunicación de masas, a quienes señalamos como instrumentos del poder para la enagenación social y como parte indispensable del entramado represivo de las diferentes operaciones sufrida en los últimos tiempos por el movimiento anarquista cumpliendo el papel de criminalizar y señalar a nuestrxs compañerxs luchadorxs.
Nuestro obbetivo es romper la paz social, agudizar el conflicto y provocar y expandir la revuelta.
Nos solidarizamos con lxs compas presxs y caidxs de esta guerra enviandolxs un fraternal saludo, deseando sientan el fuego y la acción.
Por Fernando Bárcenas, Mónica Caballero, Francisco Solar y todxs lxs presxs anarquistas y antiautoritarixs.
¡¡¡MUERTE AL ESTADO!!!
¡¡¡VIVA LA ANARQUIA!!!
Individualidades anárquicas informales.

translated by Earth First! Journal
Every tool in the toolbox! Capitalist society is held up by two fundamental pillars: repression and social control. This time we have wanted to hit a part of the system of social control via communication antennas. Between Saturday night and Sunday morning (April 2-3), led by the stars, we approached two antennas in the road between Iruña and Irurtzun (Nafarroa) and with the help of pliers we opened a breach inside wire mesh that surrounds the antennas. With wooden-handled mallets we destroyed the electricity meters inside both antennae and we broke the two AC units inside each, as well. With axes we cut the cables to the antennas’ electrical device as well as wires to the distribution substation that power the antennas.
This time we demand and make this action public in part to launch an irrintzi solidarity campaign with our imprisoned compañeros who are on hunger strike in the murderous and torturous state jails: José Adrián Poblete Darre, Xavier Corporales Barruecos, and Antonio Chavero Mejías. We do this for you.
In solidarity with the compañerxs Monica and Francisco who have recently been charged in the first degree to 12 years (a sentence is but an opinion). Strength and courage.
[This was done] in protest of the violations which are penetrating the Earth and nature, such as the TAV and the other infrastructures which serve only for the interests of the same people as always. Ama lurra defenda dezagun! [Euskara language.]
PS. It’s a shame that the fire we had hoped to gift in the end did not happen…. Do not fret, as we will take care of that next time. estatuari gerra, gerra beti!
