International Revolutionary Front
CALL FOR SOLIDARITY TO THE GUERRILLAS OF THE REVOLUTIONARY ORGANIZATION CONSPIRACY OF CELLS OF FIRE, THE REVOLUTIONARIES AND THE INDIVIDUALS THAT ARE ACCUSED FOR THE SAME CASE (TRIAL ON THE 17TH OF JANUARY)
Another reason of our action, via the mass sending of incendiary parcels to embassies and European leaders, was so we can make an international call.
We therefore call to all lengths and widths of the earth, from Europe to Latin America, for the strengthening of the revolutionary war. We organize internationally and aim at the enemy. We can’t wait to see the subversive elements flooding the streets and the guerrilla groups striking again and again. All means unlock and go on the table without taboos and fetishisation. On the demonstrations we smash the heads of cops, banks are robbed and are delivered to flames, bombs blow up governmental buildings, guns execute politicians, journalists, cops, judges, as well as all sorts of protectors of this world.
This way, step by step, the domestic internal enemy becomes even more dangerous for them. Also solidarity, one of the most powerful and authentic weapons of revolutionary forces, acquires a stronger and coordinated cry. To the mass arrests on a protest in Belgium we in reprisal will put bombs in Greece and when a revolutionary team is jailed in Chile, Argentina should fill with rubble from the attacks of comrades. For us the dead guerrillas and prisoners are not a point of truce, on the contrary they become the motive force of the exacerbation of revolutionary processes. This is why we believe that Solidarity should become more an armed stubbornness of today and not a humanitarian protest of reform.
On the 17th January 2011 in Athens, will be the trial for the case of our revolutionary organization. In this are being tried some our proud members, some revolutionaries and other anarchists because of personal relations with the accused. It is of no value to speak of the trial, since we define ourselves outside the limits of juridical authorities. What has substance is the expression of aggressive solidarity to the comrades that are accused and are in prison for this case. For us, despite the man-hunt that has been unleashed against us by the police, as well as the recent arrest of our 2 members, nothing can stop the continuous and evolutionary course of our action.
In our decision to promote a battle to the end, WE CALL in Greece, Europe, Chile, Argentina, Mexico and to the whole world to the comrades and guerrilla formations to send their attacking signals to the judges and the Greek authorities, as well as a greeting of solidarity to the hostages of the new urban guerrilla warfare. Let this trial become another reason for action in the Revolutionary War.
CONSPIRACY OF CELLS OF FIRE

“The Tory offices in Nottingham were last night visited by individuals who hate Tory scum. We smashed some windows, painted some messages including “Fight the cuts” and “Tory Scum”.
We did this because we are sick of politicians attacking common people on behalf of the rich. Politicians who have no idea what the lives of common people consist of, and should have no control over their our lives.
We did this because we believe in acting autonomously with the rage in our hearts. And we did this in solidarity with those arrested for being at Millbank, and all people who are getting fucked over by the cuts and capitalism on a daily basis.”

“The Russian Embassy in Montreal, QC had it`s windows smashed and paint thrown against it`s facade. This action took place during the days of solidarity called for between November 12th-15th in solidarity with those facing repression of the aftermath of the militant defense of the Khimki old growth forest in Russia.
Freedom for ALL prisoners, from Russia to Canada”
Ambassade Russe Attaqué (Montréal, Canada)
“plussieurs fenêtres ont été cassées par des roches et des ballons remplis de peinture ont été lancés sur la façade du bâtiment. Cette action a eu lieu pendant les journés de solidarité (12 Novembre à 15 Novembre) avec les comrades touchés par la répression après la défense de la fôret Khimki en Russie.
De la Russie jusqu’au Canada- Liberté pour tout.e.s les prisonniers!”

“Water Pumping Station at Axford in Berkshire Sabotaged to protect River Kennet SSSI (Site of Specific Scientific Interest).
The Thames water pumping station at Axford, nr Newbury, in Berkshire is causing severe damage to the ecology of the River Kennet, designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. The River is based on chalkland so any variations in the aquifer can cause damage to the habitats of species such as Water Crowfoot, water voles, river lampray, and brown trout. The pumping station at Axford currently abstracts 9.4 million litres of water a day, with a yearly licence for 4,049,000 cubic metres. 85% of this is pumped out of the catchment area for domestic and industrial use in Swindon, so is lost from the river system. Both Natural England and the World Wildlife Fund have condemed current abstraction levels from the Kennet as the cause of habitat destruction. The water licence is up for review in 2011, but as demand is increasing the chances for the Kennet are slim.
Earlier this summer fences to the compound at Axford were cut. To avoid the door and window alarms on the main pump facility air vents were removed and access was gained through the walls. The pumps were stopped and control room trashed. The back up generator was decomissioned and control pannels smashed. Locks on fluridation units were glued. This action was taken in defence of the River Kennet and the species that live there. Defend your local river system.”

“We do not recognize this procedure and we do not apologize.”
The two arrested yesterday (1 November 2010) accused of sending letter-bombs to embassies in Athens will appear in front of the interrogator on Thursday 4/11/10 at 10am.
The two comrades declared to the interrogator today that they do not recognize the procedure and that they do not apologize. The interrogator gave them until Thursday when they have to re-appear. According to their lawyer Gianna Kourtovik, they kept the same attitude at the police h/q as well.
The parents of the two accused who were called to identify them denied to appear.
The State is the Terrorist – Revolutionary Solidarity to the Insurgent Fighters.

“Last night 3 cars in the streets of the Exarchia area in Athens burned in an arson attack. We dedicate our hits in solidarity with the arrested revolutionary hostages Pangioti Argirou and Gerasimo Tsakalou, accused of sending letter-bombs. This is our solidarity to the comrades held hostage. Attack with all means available. See you soon….”

“Extensive damage has been caused to a mobile vertical borehole drilling machine at the proposed Glentaggart East open cast coal mine in South Lanarkshire. This action, taken during the night of the 29th of October, was carried out anonymously by those acting in solidarity with The Happendon Wood Action Camp (THWAC), and in support of the residents of the Douglas Valley.
The sabotage was carried out as an act of resistance to Scottish Coal’s recently submitted proposals to begin open cast coal mining on a new site between the current Glentaggart and Mainshill mines and to begin work at two new sites in the area, including yet another extension to Broken Cross as well as in Auldton Hights, nearby Lesmahagow, South Lanarkshire.
No longer shall Scottish Coal and South Lanarkshire Council be allowed to continue their rape and pillage of the land. We refuse to stand by as they rip open the ground and gouge out its flesh for their profit and at the local communities detriment. We take this action as a statement of the fact that we will not see human greed create a world where the food is too posionous to eat, the water is too defiled to drink and the air is too polluted to breathe, whilst all around us the climate is thrown into chaos as the sky falls on our heads whilst the seas come up to our necks.
End Civ Now!”

“A violent tool of the state and capitalism, bailiffs are a tool on the poor and as such deserve to be treated with fury and contempt. And last night they were.
M.A Julius and Co. of New Basford, Nottingham were paid a visit last night. Their windows were smashed and messages were left, “Fuck the Rich”, “Leave our homes alone” and “Fuck Bailiffs” were painted on the walls of their offices.
This was in solidarity with all of those, including ourselves who have had the indignity from being evicted from homes because the system we live in rewards the selfish greed of the privileged few and punishes the excluded and marginalized. As the cuts come more and more people will struggle to cope, and more and more will be put into debt, and more and more will have their doors broken down by agents of the capitalism. This action is a sign that there will be retaliation, that the controllers of capital and their stooges will not have it all their own way.
Smash the rich and fuck capital. Hammer and Paint”

“The Nottinghamshire County Hall was attacked last night with hammers and graffiti. Messages of “Fight the Cuts” and “Fuck Austerity” were left on the walls of the entrance facing the trent, whilst several windows were smashed.
This was a small gesture, it exists alongside all other gestures large and small, which refuse to accept “the way things are”.
We are members of the insubordinate masses, we won’t attend your marches or listen to your speeches. We know the government will keep cutting in order to pay for the banks mistake. We know that capitalism is the crisis, and that it will continue to be.
We will continue to attack wherever we see possibilities. We will continue to attack in solidarity with all those who are abused by governments and banks in the name of capitalism. We will continue to attack in solidarity with anyone who has fought back before us and with anyone who will fight back after us.
The system is killing us and we must fight back.”

“This morning people locked the haulage gate of Mainshill Open Cast Site on the B7078 with a d-lock preventing coal trucks entering the site and transporting coal to the Ravenstruther Rail Head.
This action was taken in solidarity with The Happendon Wood Action Camp and the people living in the Douglas Valley who are facing an onslaught of coal mines from Scottish Coal. Our actions will not stop until Scottish Coal stops ripping apart the Douglas Valley for profit. “

THIS WAS REVENGE
During the week, we heard the news of the arbitrary transfer to Santiago 1 of the comrades imprisoned in the Bombs Case, as well as their hunger strike and subsequent one-month sentence. Added to that was the beating given to our brother Abuelo (Camilo). Therefore, we decided to arm ourselves with household items in order to take revenge.
“In this joint, the cops are in charge,” declared the aggressor gendarme. Today we answer him: “In the joint and on the streets, anyone can be in charge. It’s just a question of will and conviction.”
Sir Gendarmes, wretched jailers: HANDS OFF THE ANARCHIST POLITICAL PRISONERS. Know full well that we will not stand for even one more outrage against the abducted comrades, their visitors, or their communications.
And you, sir prosecutor Alejandro Peña, should stop bullshitting. You must know that anarchists DON’T HAVE LEADERS. Therefore, ILLICIT ASSOCIATION IS IMPOSSIBLE.
Chilean Gendarmes, CONSIDER YOURSELVES WARNED.
NO MORE ANTI-TERRORIST LAW
FREE THE ACCUSED IN THE BOMBS CASE
(We take this opportunity to send greetings to those showing internationalist solidarity in England, Spain, Mexico, Greece, Argentina, Canada, and elsewhere, as well as the Mapuche prisoners in Angol who are maintaining their struggle.)

“The S.E.F and the church go hand in hand. Let both go up in flames!”
(S.E.F. is the Serviço de Estrangeiros e Fronteiras)
“Solidarity with comrades in Belgium. Fire to the detention centres!”

“Anti-police actions on the nights of the 8th and 9th October.
1. Avonmouth police garage was a soft target with 30 rocks thrown over the fence at vehicles.
2. CID regional HQ, Kenneth Steele House, Feeder rd. Plainclothes vehicles, including one sports car, smashed with rocks.
3. Fishing line strung up at 9ft for the mounted police of Bower Ashton mounted police and dog section.
Pick your moment, your terrain. Ambush.
Some angry people are not content to stagnate in silence. We recognise our brains as weapons. Wouldn’t it be nice if more people broke away from the British tradition of sitting back and taking shit from cops in the U.K and actually fought back for a change?
Solidarity with all those inside and outside the prison who fight the system.
This is for all those beaten, abused and murdered by police.”
