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.

. 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.

Two vehicles of private security company ‘Securitas’ burned in Fennovoima anti-nuclear struggle – Solidarity to Monica & Francisco (Finland)

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!

Acciones en Santiago (Chile)

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. Es así como queremos vivir y lo demostramos con acción antagónica, diciéndole a las policías, al poder. Aquí estamos, existimos, no nos rendimos. 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.

Athens: Responsibility claim for incendiary attack against Hellenic Post branch in Nea Smyrni by ‘Incendiary Disobedience Cell’ (Greece)

Monday, March 21st, 2016

“Who will shatter the rock that for millennia has sat upon individual autonomy? For so long now learning to live has meant learning to die.”

How many years of commercial society? How many more of “civilised” existence? And all this for what? We take part in the most paranoid experiment of human domination. From the early stages of domestication up to economy’s invasion into life, oppression, exploitation and coercion have been the most structural components of society. The Power’s structures and logics have strived to ensure their presence over the centuries, transformed themselves, gained flexibility by stepping on human relations and finally imposed their universality through the commercialisation of existence. Non-compliance margins have narrowed. The ways of vomiting “needless waste” are being humanised. The sometimes aggressive and sometimes passive indifference of the capitalist world towards the sustainability of human or nonhuman beings, that are deemed unnecessary in various ways, is discernible at a glance, not very far away. How many bodies stacked dead or alive in seas or the coldness of gray rooms?

There are no excuses in the face of the existent; everyone sees, everyone knows. The expression of our position towards this situation takes shape through anarchist action. We’ll avoid distant and hypothetical analysis. We know that (not only in our own lives) the moments of freedom are so assimilable into the repeated everyday routine that we are unable to imagine any possible turn of events. The only sure thing is that we feel this world to be unbearably hooked in our skin, and the more we attack it, the less it leaves its marks on us.

While some were sleeping exhausted and dazzled by a three-day weekend of frenzied consumption and entertainment, some chose to swing into action. In the early hours of Tuesday March 15th 2016, we torched and destroyed a van and an ATM of the Hellenic Post (ELTA) branch in the district of Nea Smyrni, Athens. Because of the fire’s extent, the branch acquired a new facade as well.

Also this is a minimum act of complicity with incarcerated comrades that have recently faced or are once again facing the halls of judges and prosecutors. Strength to Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar, the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, Revolutionary Struggle, as well as all imprisoned anarchists around the world, and everyone who in any way contribute to the intensification of anarchist war against Power.

PS. And because memory is integral to the continuation of anarchist struggle we cannot but recall the death of comrade Lambros Foundas, on March 10th 2010, after an armed clash with cops.
Until anarchy

We set fire to several trucks on a Vinci construction site.
We wanted to kick start a fire.
To have fun together,
to not go where we were expected.
It was great.
A fire in winter is warming.

Marseille: Incendiary attack against a GDF Suez car in solidarity with Calais (France)

Monday, March 21st, 2016

In recent weeks, the State and its “good” army have intensified their attacks against our friends in Calais, between two racist pogroms unleashed by fascists. But those who attack libertarian networks should expect strong reactions.

If the houses built in Calais are destroyed, we’ll destroy the repressive infrastructure, in Marseille like anywhere else.

In response to the destruction and attacks against the Calais Jungle, we burned a van of {Cofely – GDF Suez}, who profit from the management of so-called “migrants” by participating in the construction of detention centres in France and in Italy – Friday 4th March in the neighbourhood of Baille.

The struggle against all borders, States, and the society of exclusion and eviction, will continue.

For a solidarity-based life.

Asturias: Spanish trains sabotaged in solidarity with Mónica and Francisco (Spain)

Monday, March 21st, 2016

On March 11th 2016, we cut the counterweights along the catenary of Avilés/Xixón rail line in both directions. The cuts were made at the height of the town of Villabona, locality where our comrades Mónica and Francisco are held hostage. These cuts produce a voltage drop on the line forcing a halt to train traffic, causing serious delays and economic losses. The action aims to send a warm revolutionary hug to our comrades on the occasion of the trial/farce organised by the Spanish State.

Also solidarity graffiti were painted on the two signs of the -penitentiary centre- indicating where they are held hostage.

Love for freedom, and hate of those who take it from us

Brigada de la Muerte FAI/FRI – Reivindicación de amenaza a párroco de iglesia Los Sacramentinos (Chile)

Tuesday, March 15th, 2016



English Translation

Reivindicación de amenaza a párroco de iglesia Los Sacramentinos

La iglesia y sus mutaciones a lo largo de la historia ha logrado prevalecer como símbolo y ejecutante de poder en el mundo, con pequeñas reinversiones han logrado que su moral y divina autoridad sigan siendo legitimas, permaneciendo así como forma de control para la humanidad. La sangre derramada por la inquisición en su época es reemplazada hoy por cánones morales, rutinas de comportamiento que no son más que el reflejo de una sociedad enferma. Heteronormatividad, supremacía del hombre por sobre todo, monarquías, justificación de la explotación humana y animal, vicios como machismo, pedofilia, el poder llevado a la escala más pequeña, la imbecilidad legitimada en más imbecilidad, y por supuesto no podría estar ausente el castigo más “duro” al que se puede someter a un bastardo pederasta: Una vida de oración.

A lo largo de la historia la iglesia siempre ha sido un blanco de ataque para quienes luchan contra el poder. No podemos olvidar como Mateo Morral atentó contra los reyes católicos en el año 1906. Acá en Chile el ataque tampoco ha sido la excepción, en el año 1915 el poder montó una cacería contra compañerxs anarquistas tratando de buscar a los responsables de ataques dinamiteros contra conventos religiosos. La Brigada de la Muerte en la España de 1936 saqueaba iglesias, profanaban tumbas de sacerdotes y asesinaban a los que se mantenían vivos por salvaguardar el fascismo en pequeños pueblos.

En la actualidad en Chile estas acciones han continuado, distintos células insurreccionales han bombardeado iglesias con cargas explosivas e incendiarias. Hasta en protestas han sido blanco de ataques, por ejemplo: La Iglesia de la Gratitud Nacional ubicada en plena Alameda. Su puerta principal fue incendiada por insurrectxs en una manifestación el 25 de agosto del año 2011. Esta nuevamente vio las llamas el 23 de mayo del año 2015 en la conmemoración por la muerte del anarquista Mauricio Morales, y días después, el 28 de mayo -nuevamente en una manifestación- sus puertas fueron alimentadas por el fuego anarquista.

Sin más, mediante este correo electrónico reivindicamos el envío de una carta a Rafael Cáceres Olave, párroco de la iglesia Los Sacramentinos en los días previos al juicio que enfrentaban lxs anarquistas Mónica Caballero y Francisco Solar en España acusadxs de distintas explosiones en iglesias adjudicadas por el Comando Insurreccional Mateo Morral. La carta contenía un mensaje por nuestrxs compañerxs y balas. Elegimos a este sujeto por ser párroco de la iglesia a la que Mónica había sido acusada de atentar en el denominado Caso Bombas en Chile.

El incendio, el ataque, la amenaza contra cualquier representante de la iglesia y el poder esta plenamente justificada. Tenemos las armas y nuestra voluntad para atentar contra ellxs. Sus días de jolgorio han acabado.

Derribando su historia, falsa moral, poder y autoridad…
Nos erigimos y gritamos fuerte:
¡Mónica Caballero y Francisco Solar a la kalle!
¡Muerte al estado/capital/iglesia y que viva la anarquía!

Porto Alegre: Arson attack against a Santander bank in solidarity with Monica, Francisco & CCF (Brazil)

Sunday, March 13th, 2016

On the night of March 9, we placed an incendiary device at the Santander bank branch on Ramiro Barcelos street. Our incentive to conspire and then carry out the attack was solidarity and complicity with anarchists behind bars who endure days and days of incarceration but still hold their heads high, proud of their ideas and convictions.

In response to the call for solidarity with the compas Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar we organized ourselves so that our desire to express solidarity became a fire to reach the companeros who are facing a trial in which they face 44 years in prison, accused of terrorism and particularly an attack on the Basilica of the Pillar in Barcelona.

There are many reasons and motives to attack Santander Bank. For example, besides being representatives of the Spanish state (who have kidnapped our companeros), in this territory they were the administrators of Augustus Pinochet’s money following the military dictatorship in Chile. In the end, these facts are only details that enhance our anger… Any banking institution that tries to hide their genocidal intentions with ‘cultural projects’ or other pseudo-humanist terms are representatives of a system that only inspires our disgust.

Branches of Santander Bank have been attacked twice in recent days in Santiago, Chile and in Buenos Aires. The two attacks were carried out in solidarity with Monica and Francisco. This silent, instinctive coordination of solidarity not only causes a great inconvenience to normal life at different points in the world, but also strengthens our ties, making it clear there are no borders and that we do not need leaders or vertical structures to attack several bars in the same cage.

With this solidarity action for Monica and Francisco, we also send greetings to the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire compas and their families who are also facing another trial against them. Their strength inspires us every day to walk looking for the fire to illuminate the darkness.

Down with the prison walls.

Incendiary solidarity with Monica and Francisco

For the proliferation of the groups of attacks. The beauty of solidarity is the complicity.

Long live anarchy!

Santiago: Noise bomb detonated outside highway management company Vespucio Sur building in Santiago by FAI-FRI / Bomba de ruido contra empresa consecionaria de autopistas (Chile)

Sunday, March 13th, 2016

English translation via insurrectionnews:

“This silent, instinctive coordination of solidarity not only causes a great inconvenience to normal life at different points in the world, but also strengthens our ties, making it clear there are no borders and that we do not need leaders or vertical structures to attack several bars in the same cage.”
Words from compas in Brazil claiming an arson attack in solidarity with Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar

Early on Saturday March 12, we detonated a noise bomb outside the ‘Vespucio Sur’ highway management building in the city of Santiago. We decided to make our objective clear and carry out the action at a time when the area was free of passers-by because we do not consider it desirable to harm people who have nothing to do with the targets of our attacks.

We do not consider the struggle against civilization to be distinct or external to the struggle against all forms of authority. We identified the highway management companies as being important arteries that gives life to the network of domination, facilitating the advancement of civilization and enriching themselves via the imposition of an urbanism that is servile to the interests of power.

Both the present and past history show us that the germ that leads to authority has also developed in communities that existed prior to civilization and has also manifested itself in groups that have remained outside or against civilization. That is why our struggle is essentially ANTI-AUTHORITARIAN. This is why we feel it is important to distance ourselves from the self-proclaimed ‘eco-extremist tendency’ that has defended the indiscriminate attack that is contrary to the idea of being ‘against all authority’ and denounces international solidarity with imprisoned companeros who are related in word and deed to insurrectionary anarchy. Such ideas are neither an ‘evolution’ or ‘more radical’ but are in fact quite the opposite. We have no interest in engaging in virtual polemics with them, we prefer dialogue with our companeros via action.

Our companeros are those who position themselves in their lives and through their actions as enemies of all forms of domination and put into practice their solidarity with companeros who remain dignified and combative even inside the cages of power.

…Companeros like Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar, who have elevated our insurgent spirits with their serene and defiant attitude before the Spanish courts. The international solidarity will not end once the trial is over!

…Companeros like Javier Recabarren, a young anarchist insurgent who died after being hit by a bus in March 2015.

…Companeros like Sole and Baleno who were found dead in the cells of the Italian state on March 28, 1998.

…Companeros like Jonny Cariqueo, a young anarchist who died from the beatings by police officers who arrested him after the Day of the Young Combatants demonstration on March 29, 2008 in the Pudahel district.

…Companeros like Joaquin Garcia who on March 09 injured Alvaro Corvalan, former chief intelligence officer of the dictatorship with a blow to the face inside the maximum security prison.

…Companeros like the irreducible anarchists of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire who are currently facing trial for their attempted prison escape.

With our companeros we will continue to strengthen our actions and sharpen our ideas.

Following in the footsteps of Severino, Lambros Foundas and Mauricio Morales…to multiply anarchic / anti-authoritarian cells of multifaceted action!

Against all leaders.
Against civilization and all forms of authority.
DEATH TO THE STATE AND LONG LIVE ANARCHY!

“Esta coordinación silenciosa, instintiva y solidaria no solo provoca un incomodo en la vida normalizada de distintos puntos del mundo, sino que fortalece nuestros lazos que dejan claro que no existen fronteras, que no necesitamos cabecillas ni estructuras verticales para atacar varias rejas de la misma jaula”.
Palabras de compas de Brasil reivindicando ataque incendiario en solidaridad con Mónica Caballero y Francisco Solar

La madrugada del sábado 12 de marzo detonamos una bomba de ruido en las afueras de la empresa concesionaria de la autopista “Vespucio Sur”, ciudad de Santiago. Decidimos actuar en un horario libre de transeuntes para dejar claro nuestro objetivo y porque no consideramos un acto sublime el dañar a personas que no tienen que ver con los objetivos de nuestro ataque.

No concebimos la lucha contra la civilización como algo distinto o externo a la lucha contra toda forma de autoridad. Identificamos a las empresas administradoras de autopistas como una hebra importante del tejido que da vida a la red de la dominación, facilitando el avance de la civilización y enriqueciendose con la imposición de un urbanismo servil a los intereses del poder.

La historia, el pasado y el presente nos muestran que el germen y ejercicio de la autoridad también se ha desarrollado en comunidades que han existido antes de la vida civilizada y tambien se ha manifestado y manifiesta en grupos que se han mantenido fuera o en contra de la civilización. Por eso nuestra lucha es esencialmente ANTIAUTORITARIA. Esto nos obliga a marcar una importante distancia con una autodenominada “tendencia eco-extremista” que ha defendido el ataque indiscriminado, se desmarca de la idea de estar “contra toda autoridad” y reniega de la solidaridad internacional con compañerxs presxs afines en palabra y acción con la anarquía insurreccional. Tales ideas no son para nosostrxs una “evolución” o “algo más radical” sino todo lo contrario. No nos interesa levantar polémicas virtuales con ellxs, preferimos dialogar con nuestrxs compañerxs a través de la acción.

Nuestrxs compañerxs son quienes se posicionan en su vida y en sus actos como enemigxs de toda forma de dominación y ponen en práctica la solidaridad con lxs compañerxs que se mantienen dignxs y en pie de guerra aun estando en las jaulas del poder.

…Compañerxs como Mónica Caballero y Francisco Solar, quienes han elevado nuestro espíritu insurrecto con su serena y desafiante actitud ante los tribunales españoles. Que la solidaridad internacional no cese una vez terminado el juicio!

…Compañerxs como Javier Recabarren, pequeño insurrecto afín a la anarquía muerto en marzo de 2015 al ser atropellado por un bus.

…Compañerxs como Sole y Baleno, quien fue encontrado muerto en una celda del Estado Italiano el 28 de marzo de 1998.

…Compañerxs como Jonny Cariqueo, joven anarquista muerto tras las golpizas de policías que lo detuvieron luego de una marcha por el Día del Joven Combatiente el 29 de marzo de 2008 en la comuna de Pudahuel.

…Compañerxs como Joaquín García, quien el 09 de marzo hirió con un golpe en el rostro al ex jefe de inteligencia de la dictadura Álvaro Corvalán en la prisión de máxima seguridad.

…Compañerxs como lxs irructibles anarquistas de la Conspiración de Células del Feugo, que en estos días enfrentan el juicio por su intento de fuga.

Con nuestrxs compañerxs, seguiremos fortaleciendo nuestro accionar y afilando nuestras ideas.

…En la senda de Severino, Lambros Foundas y Mauricio Morales… ¡A multiplicar las células anárquicas/antiautoritarias de acción multiforme!

Contra todos los jefes.
Contra la civilización y toda forma de autoridad.
¡MUERTE AL ESTADO Y VIVA LA ANARQUÍA!
