Athens: Triple arson attack in the city centre by FAI/FRI (Greece)

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

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.

Arson of Hellenic Post vehicles in the suburb of Aghioi Anargyroi (Greece)

Thursday, June 9th, 2016

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.

Incendiary attack against a Banamex bank in Oaxaca by Informal Anarchic Individualities (Mexico)

Monday, May 30th, 2016

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…)

2013 – Communique for attack in the shopping centre ‘Mall’ – Athens (Greece)

Thursday, May 26th, 2016



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?

Explosive attack against CORTV Oaxaca by ‘Informal Anarchic Individualities’ (Mexico)

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

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.

Communication antennas sabotaged in solidarity with prisoners (Basque Country)

Monday, April 18th, 2016

from Irakunditxs via Contra Madriz

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!

Targeted rampage of administrative offices of the University of Tolbiac (France)

Monday, April 4th, 2016

Translator’s note: This sabotage took place during the ongoing movement against the “loi Travail” (the work act). The university of Tolbiac is on the frontline of this struggle in Paris. This rampage was commented in the bourgeois press, and some unions already dissociated themselves as can be seen here.

University of Tolbiac, March 22, an occupation of the N lecture hall is planned to hold a general assembly, but cops, security guards and management are all here to prevent it. In a wink, all of them disappear and the door of the lecture hall opens miraculously. We now understand that opportunists of the movement negotiated behind the backs of all. Like what, there are no miracles. It is precisely for this reason that, pissed off, we decided to sabotage these power games.

While students were getting sloshed in their supposedly occupied lecture hall, we decided to have fun in a whole different way. We climbed the 7th floor to ransack administration offices, cutting cables, throwing various liquids on various electronic devices, administrative papers are destroyed and two computers are stolen to be quietly destroyed.

This is the realization of a precise will to not be limited to speaking out, to general assemblies, or demos (whether at 11 or 13:301), but to counter any form of collusion with power, all powers.

Let’s prevent the law from working.

Some enraged of another 22 March2.

Translated from Attaque.



1
. TN : Since the beginning of the movement, in Paris, the “unorganised” demos generally starts at 11, while the unions starts at 13:30.

2. TN : Probably a reference to the Movement of 22 March 1968.

Sunday, April 3rd, 2016

We take responsibility for the arson attack on the 29th of March. We burned two cars of the private security company Securitas. With this attack we want to bring to light the co-operation between Securitas and Fennovoima nuclear energy company that is known for its destruction of the environment.

The 1st of April will be the first day that Securitas will be in charge of the construction site in Hanhikivenniemi, where the latest nuclear plant is meant to be built.

With this arson we welcome Securitas to Fennovoima!

We want to send our solidarity to Monica and Francisco.
And all the prisoners of the world!

Bomba de ruido en visita nocturna a sede de la UDI.

Madrugada del 23 de Marzo – Santiago

Cuando nos declaramos a viva voz enemigxs de la dominación, contrarixs a la forma de vida impuesta vigilada y controlada por el poder, es una obligación aportar en aquel camino elegido, aportar desde la multiformidad de la acción directa en pos de la lucha.

Multiplicaremos nuestro accionar, lo potenciaremos, para atacar cuando menos se lo esperen. (more…)

Hamburg: Churches desecrated in solidarity with Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar (Germany)

Thursday, March 24th, 2016

In the early hours of March 20th 2016, unknown persons desecrated three churches in Hamburg with a fire extinguisher filled with paint, slingshot and stone. In addition to this vandalism, slogans such as “No God – No State – No patriarchy”, “Solidarity with Mónica and Francisco” and circle-A’s were spray-painted. Flyers were thrown on the streets, reading: “Religion means oppression! Against every domination! Solidarity with Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar, anarchists imprisoned in Spain”.

Thessaloniki: Anarchists claim responsibility for destruction of mobile phone antennas (Greece)

Thursday, March 24th, 2016

Modern capitalistic society is a society of control. And this because the system engages in an unending and total attempt to maintain the normality of social life. From this condition of control, the technology of surveillance could not be absent, as the technological development is directly related to the progression of authority and its ways it imposes itself.

State and capital, as active users of technology, shape this form of surveillance, aiming at profits and their own further imposition. From cameras in big cities and public transport for the security of those “who have nothing to hide” (and for this reason prefer to show everything) to the cameras in work spaces in order to “secure” our productivity and normality in consumerist procedures. And from the new biometric IDs to personal files on everyone, which is formed in relation to visited internet sites, preferences, music listened to, books read, financial transactions, data that is recorded by various colossal companies that have identified a big part of our lives with targeted ads and product promotion for consumption.

As years pass, as much as technology develops, we will have to deal more and more with inventions that, consciously or not, contribute to repression. This is a logical consequence since a big part of research on this field is financed and guided by state and inter-state authorities, as well as multinational companies that try to solve their concern for better fortification and profit production.

Montreuil-sous-Bois: Arson attack against ‘Archi 5’ studio of prison architecture in solidarity to Monica and Francisco (France)

Monday, March 21st, 2016

On the night between 8 and 9 March 2016, using dumped garbage and flammable products, we set fire to the front of the architect’s studio in Archi 5, rue Voltaire in the centre of Montreuil-sous-Bois.

On its website Archi 5 boasts of having achieved, or being in the act of achieving, alongside innocuous buildings, the following list of gruesome projects:

The prisons of Bourg en Bresse, of Draguignan, of Mont de Marsan, of Rennes, the jail of Condé-sur-Sarthe and Vendin the Veil, the Pole of the Judicial Police of Cergy-Pontoise, the police station in Clichy-sous-Bois, the Tribunal de Grande Instance de Chartres, the detention centre of French Polynesia in Tahiti.

We dedicate this action to all those fight for freedom and against all authority, especially the anarchist comrades Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar in the clutches of the Spanish State and are risking very heavy prison sentences, do not deny a word of what they think and what they are.

Fire to the prisons.
Fire to those who build them.

Valence: Anarchist tags on two churches (France)

Monday, March 21st, 2016

Translated by Act for freedom now!, via Cette Semaine

Dauphiné Libéré, 13/03/2016 17:01

Funny discovery this morning for the parishioners of Our Lady of the Annunciation, at the Grand Charran and Notre Dame, rue Berthelot in Valence. During the night one or more individuals had doused the facades of the two religious buildings with red paint, not without also writing phrases with anarchist connotations. The council has decided to lodge a complaint.
