18.02.17: On February 21/22 the European Police Congress will take place for the 20th time in Berlin. On this occasion at the Berlin Congress Center (BCC), war mongers, human hunters and security fanatics meet to propagate their despicable machinations.
In addition to Thomas Thomas de Maizière, the Federal Minister of the Interior and Hans-Georg Maaßen, the President of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, agents and guards of all types will be represented by Europol, Frontex, BKA, LKAs and many other authorities. Also present will be lobbyists, entrepreneurs and war ministries such as Heckler & Koch, Taser, Rheinmetal and developers of monitoring software and communications technology such as SAP, IBM and Vodafone will also be present.
Under the slogan – Europe limitless? Freedom, mobility, security – the coming campaigns in which authority is put into position will be discussed and the appropriate technologies and weapons will be brought into the field.
Words such as limitless, freedom and mobility are above all the transnational cooperation of the repressive European bodies, the exchange of data and knowledge and the militarization of Europe and its external borders. (more…)

Anarchwaethus: Difrod i fega-garchar HMP Berwyn, Wrecsam
It is important to announce one week before the opening of HMP Berwyn that two of the houseblocks in the prison are structurally unsound due to sabotage in 2015.
After our action in May 2015 where machinery was sabotaged, we knew that to regularly attempt to attack the prison would be impossible due to the prison walls being built around the site. After intensive research, it soon became apparent that we could have a dramatic effect with little effort.
In July 2015, a strong acidic powder was poured into the excavations of the groundfloor slabs of two of the prisons’s houseblocks. This has made two of these buildings structurally unsound – their foundations will eventually crumble and the buildings could collapse over time.
Given that the strength of these slabs has been greatly reduced, intrusive investigations and a full re-build of these houseblocks would be necessary before attempting to cage people in these buildings.
This action is dedicated to every human being that has died in the prison system at the hands of the State.

NORTH GREECE – RESPONSIBILITY CLAIM, KAVALA 26/1/2017
On January 5th Pola Roupa and Konstandina Athanasopoulou, members of the R.O. Revolutionary Struggle, are arrested. The anti-terrorist dogs raid the house where Roupa and her child were living, terrorizing her 6 year old son. As if this was not enough, the scum of society, the cops snatch and kidnap the 6 year old. The despicable government of Syriza-Anel inaugurated a new practice of revenging and exterminating the enemy. The following days there was a “struggle” by some parts of society as well as portion of prisoners with sole demand the child’s release.
The members of R.S. pay the price of the anti-state armed struggle. They deal with the state in its most vengeful form, because through these actions they managed to harm, to a greater or lesser degree, the class of bosses and disrupt their calmness proving that the enemy is not invincible. They decided to return some of the violence the lower layers have received in the previous years by domestic and foreign politicians and technocrats. (more…)

Mexico City: Explosive-incendiary attack in solidarity with the prisoners in Aachen
Reasons to fight, we have plenty. We have taken into account the need to act directly against Capital, every time we find more reasons to continue fighting. A few weeks ago for example some comrades were accused of armed robbery in Aachen, Germany; and understanding the bureaucratic process of the ‘legitimate justice’ of the bourgeoisie, they were deprived of freedom. We must not forget, as has already been mentioned in these spaces of diffusion, that expropriation is a just, direct action and part of the history of every revolutionary movement. Emphasizing the slogan: “What crime is it to expropriate or set fire to a bank compared to founding it?” (more…)

Milan: Phone masts burned in solidarity with anarchist comrades arrested in Operation Scripta Manent (Italy)
Friday, February 10th, 2017
“January 26th. Milano hinterland. Two phone masts burned, one in Paderno Dugnano and the other one in Bollate. Attack the Power now, and its increasingly widespread technological and telecommunicational control. Active solidarity with the anarchists in slammer for Op. Scripta Manent.”

Berlin: Let smoke signals speak… French diplomatic vehicle torched by ‘Rémi Fraisse Cell’- FAI (Germany)
Monday, February 6th, 2017
Armed with an incendiary device, we rode through the streets of Berlin on a frosty night looking for a target for which we could say that we are fighting the struggles of our unknown comrades against the CIGÉO nuclear dump in the woods of Bure, in the ZAD and against the French state of emergency as a whole and express our solidarity.
We also support other anarchist interventions on the continent of Europe, such as Revolutionary Struggle in Greece.
So we torched a diplomatic vehicle of the French Embassy at the Willmanndamm in Schöneberg last night, with which we would like to greet the prisoner Damien Camélio, as well as Pola Roupa and Konstantina Athanasopoulou who were recently arrested in Athens, for whose freedom all states must be combated, and for who we will continue to act diligently.
This is also a call to use the G20 in Hamburg to coordinate our theory and praxis in order to reach a continuing anarchist offensive in all areas beyond the July meeting.
The French piece of shit who wants to represent his regime at the G20 in Hamburg is of course just as welcome as any other power. We advise the diplomats of Berlin to hide in gated communities.

Athens: Responsibility claim for 6 coordinated incendiary attacks by CCF – Incendiary Destabilization Outbreaks / FAI-IRF (Greece)
Sunday, February 5th, 2017
WE ARE THE ONES WHO WILL BRING THE CURTAIN DOWN
We claim responsibility for the 6 following arson attacks.
– A bank at Petralona a few streetss next to the consumer neighborhood of Gazi.
– The security agency FALCON at the main and busy Kifisias Avenue, which is being advertised by the journalistic trash of the television.
– A post office Savings Bank at the seemingly police state Aleksandra’s Avenue.
– 3 diplomatic corps vehicles
Cities are history‘s theatre. They are the places where life performs disciplined social roles, played by law abiding citizens or happy slaves in the reflection of digital communication displays’ and storefronts of consumption, while walking predetermined paths from wage-slavery to paid entertainment. Each move we make is controlled by the vigilant eyes of thousands of cameras on the streets, roadblocks by uniformed police and cops’ motor patrols.
In the current conditions of economic crisis, the only currency with a constant value is the currency of fear in the hands of authority. The fear that nothing can change, that we are few and that prison is lurking for those who dare to question authority’s orders. However life is running fast and cannot wait for those who are afraid to live. LOOK FEAR IN THE FACE AND FEAR WILL FLINCH AND LEAVE.
We must turn the cities into battlefields and the nights into our allies in urban guerilla surprise attacks. We must lay mines of fire in all the symbols of this world that keeps us imprisoned. We know that burning a bank or setting an official state car on fire is not sufficient; however the real power of illegal anarchist actions is that they are like spare keys. Spare keys that release people’s strength of rebellion, the strength to strike authority and live dangerously free. This is why we create small militant groups ready for action, here and now. We can’t wait for the soulless crowd; we can’t seek after proletarians that are asking only for a better salary. We are not shepherds for the masses of people to follow, nor are we gravediggers for those who have buried their lives into silence.
Through self-organization and informal coordination, we create a legacy of deeds in this fight against this authority of entrapment, breaking the pace of the legal order. These difficult times cannot break our beliefs in any way; on the contrary they become more acute, they reignite. We blend our hatred with conscience and dignity and when this mixture binds, it will poison and destroy the body of every prosecutor, every journalist, every cop, every security guard, every snitch, all kinds of henchmen and peaceful citizens and in general all the garbage that forms this sterilized society of security. The settled will never abandon their commodities and choose the road to rebellion; of that we are well aware. Fear of social rejection leads to inaction and conservative anarchist practices which are confined within the “internal” movement. Our means are purely illegal and we are not willing to make them more “social” and therefore acceptable, as much as the left or right wing stewards of power and the sympathizers-supporters of the movement are trying to convince us.
We became what we dreamt since we were children, ANARCHISTS OF THE DEED that don’t sleep at night and all we care for is to set your nights on fire and ruin your party by destabilizing on a regular basis the metropolitan normality. We are the ones that dare to risk where punishment and incarceration is lurking, deconstructing fear in all its aspects. Because in the end anarchy is in our hearts, in our minds, in every drop of blood that runs through our veins, in our illegal actions far away from your bourgeois morals and cleanness. Maybe you can sometimes imprison our bodies but you can never imprison our anarchist beliefs that will always find fertile ground against every form of authority. Besides, our continuous attacks are the most undisputed evidence.
We live in time of war and we know that well. Real solidarity to our imprisoned comrades is one of the most powerful weapons in this social war that is unfortunately being deprived of its meaning. We must make it clear that the anarchist action and assault can only be realized through solidarity. Our solidarity is not a result of mercy or philanthropic, leftist sentimentality. In the eyes of our comrades we can see ourselves, since we chose to be on the field of illegality and the urban guerilla anarchist action.
And if we have losses and imprisoned comrades in this battle, the anarchist cells are like Hydra. For every arrest, new comrades will throw themselves in the battlefield, for every arrest an incendiary device will shimmer right before the ignition. And this fire will last forever… creating anarchy inside anarchy.
Because as we said at the beginning, life is giving a sick performance while the director is setting the scene, lining up everyone to his own interest; with the actors playing their part literally and the passive audience that is either watching absorbed or whistling indifferently and watching silently when bored. However in this theatre, some of us didn’t accept the predetermined parts that have been given to us, we are the ones that will sabotage the show and give to your play our own ending. Don’t say that we are few; don’t say that we don’t matter, because in the end we will win. WE ARE THE ONES WHO WILL BRING THE CURTAIN DOWN!
WE DEDICATE THESE ATTACKS OF SOLIDARITY TO THE IMPRISONED MEMBERS OF REVOLUTIONARY STRUGGLE POLA ROUPA AND KONSTANTINA ATHANASOPOULOU AS A RESPONSE TO THE RECENT REPRESSIVE OPERATIONS
P.S. Snitches, journalists, prosecutors don’t ever think that we have forgotten you.
WE WILL RETURN SOON
LONG LIVE ANARCHY AND THE NEW URBAN GUERILLA

Den Haag: ATM machines demolished in solidarity with the anarchists accused of bank robberies in Aachen (Netherlands)
Sunday, January 22nd, 2017
Last night we demolished 9 ATM machines in Den Haag, the Netherlands, in solidarity with the the anarchists accused of bank robberies in Aachen, Germany. Their court case is set to begin on January 23rd 2017, and will take around 26 days spread over a 5 months.
We are not interested in knowing whether the comrades are actually responsible for the bank robberies or not. Expropriation is an ethically just and politically legitimate practice, a method of struggle that is part of the history of all revolutionary movements.
We want them free! Love, rage and solidarity!
Destroy all banks! Fire to the prisons!
Berlin: Arson attacks against Sodexo and Vodafone in solidarity with prisoners and for a world free from rulers (Germany)
Thursday, January 12th, 2017
Berlin, January 6, 2017
Different reasons have caused us to express ourselves again, even if the resources used, in terms of material expenditure and ‘man’ power were very small. One of these reasons is the ‘message barrier’ which was partly imposed on militant actions. Anonymous comrades of the ‘Autonomous Groups’ already pointed this out in the framework of their attack against the Ordnungsamt (public order police) on 25.12.16.
In the meantime, it should be clear to the authorities that the two torched vans did not fall victim to a technical defect on ‘company premises’ on Sewanstraße as they initially suspected but were torched using fire accelerators. One on the right front tire and one on the right rear tire. The vehicles belong to the company Sodexo whose activity in the prison industry has been reported several times, which is why they have been repeatedly subjected to militant actions.
We hope that there was damage to the building structure and we want to emphasize that we are not interested in frightening the workers. As a character mask of the capitalist social formation they contribute to the continuation of the same but only to a limited extent.
This attack is to be understood as a small flame of solidarity with the diverse range of people affected by repression. Examples include the revolting / striking prisoners in the USA. Also in the exceptional condition, due to the riots of the inmates, are some prisons in the UK.

In the late hours of 25-11-16, we carried out coordinated arson attacks against the German energy multinational RWE in the vicinity of the Hambach opencast lignite mine. We have delayed this communique until now (11-1-17) for strategic purposes.
After a scout of the area, we split up and set fire to six pumping stations, two electrical transformers, one digger and a substation of the electrical grid.
Pumping stations are key pieces of the mines infrastructure used to lower the water table and prevent the flooding of the mine. They most often resemble a section of exposed pipe and an electrical box surrounded by construction fence. We prised open the electrical boxes using a crowbar and placed simple timed incendiary devices and a bundle of bicycle inner tubes inside to ensure the flames caught nicely.
The incendiary devices were composed of a candle secured to a firelighter cube with a strong rubber band. The candles burnt down slowly, then ignited the firelighters once we were safely away from the area. After smashing a window to gain access, we used the same devices to burn out the cab of the digger. (more…)

This new years night while everybody was celebrating, we had a special party of our own, visiting the hambach opencast mine and putting on a nice fireworks display for RWE and breaking some glass for a lucky new fear.
After wandering along the railway tracks which transport brown coal from the mine to nearby power stations, we came across two signal boxes and a bundle of cables and thought these were perfectly suitable targets for our mischevious intentions.
We opened the boxes with a wide chisel and placed inside 10cm lengths of inner tube stuffed with gasoline soaked cloths then smeared the inside of the boxes with burning gel to make sure it all burnt properly.
We thought the party was over, but then on the way back we noticed some welcoming lights from an office trailer in a fenced compound. Next to the trailer were two parked diggers in dire need of maintenance, we checked the trailer was empty by smashing its windows, then cut the fence and set about immediately improving the air conditioning of the diggers, smashing their windows, cutting all of the hydraulics and adding some extra holes to the coolers. We also poured some dirt and broken glass in the gas tanks and used a bolt cutter to cut the valves of the trailers tires.
200m further, we found a front-end loader and gave it the same treatment aswell as emptying the fire extinguisher found inside the cab into its gas tank.
According to the media reports all of this caused a damage of “tens of thousands” of euros, making it our most expensive new years party so far.
We wish to send our thanks to all the people who provided us with perfect soundcover by wasting huge amounts of explosives, terrifying the local wildlife in a stupid capitalist ritual.

On the night of the 5th of January I paid a visit to the Hambach open cast browncoal mine close to Aachen. My goal was to destroy the railroad tracks with a load of thermite i stole from an other industrial company.
Thermite burns around 2500 degrees celcius and the steel of the tracks melts around 1500 degrees celcius so the thermite does a lot of damage when ignited properly.
I chose the location so it would hurt them most, at the part where the train can switch to the other track since this part is one of a kind and they have to make a new one on site. When I got there I set everything up after checking the target and my escape route, the termite I put in 2 plantpots with a hole in the bottom to guide the molten mixture to the right place. The stuff is easy to ignite with sparklers which you can get anywhere around new years but to be sure it all goes up I put around 20 in each spot.
I placed the devices and set it ablaze, just in the moment I lit the 2nd one I saw the headlights of an train coming my way. I had plenty of time to get some space between me and the molten mixture and watch the train driving into one of the pots. The tracks and front wheel was covered in the burning thermite and making a repetitive noise of the wheels hitting the damaged
After one last look at this spectacle I got my ass out of there.
Piromane against RWE.
Green Nemesis #2: Sabotage of consumer goods hits major multi-national corporations Coca-Cola, Nestlé and Unilever, forcing them to withdraw goods at huge cost (Greece)
Friday, December 23rd, 2016
Last Monday eco-anarchist comrades took responsibility for a successful sabotage of products produced by our enemies, the multinational corporations. The sabotage will cost millions of euros in lost revenue over the Xmas holiday period and it is an attack against the projected impenetrable images of the corporations during the Christian consumer spectacle as the story has been spread by the terror hungry media hysteria. The following is a machine translation of info on Athens IMC. We will update this report with any developments and more accurate translation as it comes. The first act of the Green Nemesis project took place in December 2013 with a similar victorious sabotage costing millions. Long live subversive anarchy. Death to civilisation.
Specifically, the companies announced that immediately proceed on a precautionary removal of these products from all points of sale in Attica:
– Hellmann’s Caesar Salad Dressing (plastic bottle of 235 ml)
– Pummaro “classic” and “more concentrated” (Carton of 500g and 520g respectively)
– Nestea Ice Tea Peach (500ml plastic bottle, plastic bottle 4CH500)
– Nestea Ice Tea Lemon (500ml plastic bottle, plastic bottle 4CH500)
– Coca-Cola Light (500ml plastic bottle, plastic bottle 4CH500)
It all started yesterday when organizing a suspension of the indymedia, and message sent to media, warning that has poisoned food and has repositioned in soupermerket shelves.
The text of the organization accompanied by the corresponding photos and was as follows:
Products megacorporations Coca Cola, Nestle, Unilever and Delta (detail listed below) were poisoned with chlorine and hydrochloric acid. For a time, which will not reveal as we do not want to partially withdraw the lots marketed, expropriation of knowledgeable super market chains throughout Attica these products.
The sauce for the Ceasar salad Hellmans (owned by Unilever) was quite easy. Just pulled the lid firmly, without xesfragistei, removed 10mL product and added 10mL bleach. We are shaken, and the product does not present any obvious deterioration.
For ” Fresh milk ‘DELTA was also simple process. All you needed was to ram a syringe at the top of the pack, to tilt the package to remove the product 20mL and 20mL fill with hydrochloric acid (HCl). We pressed me carton to make sure it does not drip and made sure that it is like new.
For Pummaro tomato sauce (to Unilever) followed the same procedure with the milk, with the difference that just needed to raise the top of the package, so as to position the syringe to remove product 10mL and 10mL fill with hydrochloric acid. Then simply welding the sides of the upper part with a little glue in a thin brush.
For products of Nestle and Coca Cola followed the following procedure: little unstuck on a label to the point of glue opened with calcined tweezers very fine hole to country barely the tip of the syringe and remove 20mL than products, repositioning 20mL hydrochloric acid. Seal the hole with minimum silicon and simply stick again label. There was no apparent deformation of the product.
Throughout the course of the procedure took care to not let any genetic material that can be our identification, and also after the end of the process for all products, sufficiently purified, for added confidence.
More specifically, they expropriated and poisoned:
-12 Salad Ceasar salads Hellmans (Unilever)
-23 Packaging Pummaro tomato sauce ” Classic ” (Unilever)
-11 Packaging Pummaro tomato sauce ” more concentrated ” (Unilever)
-35 Packages’ fresh milk ” DELTA
-12 Bottles Nestea peach of Nestle
-10 Bottles Nestea lemon, Nestle’s
-29 Bottles of Coca Cola Light
Poisoned products will be repositioned in large super market chains shelves throughout Attica. Be sure not to be prevented rather the repositioning process, as well as the so expropriation and put them back (away from Katha kind ” eyes ”, electronic or otherwise). The repositioning of the products will start just three days after sending this message (that will start from 12.22.2016) and will last exactly two weeks (until 05/01/2017).
Operations targeting this action is the sabotage of these companies through the full withdrawal of the products for these 2 weeks, making it clear that it does not intend to cause any damage to consumers. Hitting the marketers profile of these megacorporations, seek to challenge the economic blow, as if they want to be ” safe ” their clients should withdraw all batches of products will be on for as long shelves in which would take action.
For the publication of this warning message are making a responsible regime’s media to which it was sent (Daily, Jungle, Bloko, Newsbeast). In case of non-publication, with the, what it entails, net charge is the specific means again.
With the completion of the action will be published detailed sponsorship text.
The text meant immediate alarm in the headquarters of the Hellenic Police commissioned the inquiry into the case in Counter-Terrorism and informed the FSA.
Following the announcement of the Greek Police, the Coca-Cola company, Nestle and Unilever decided to precautionary withdraw the products mentioned at the beginning of the article.
Even invited consumers for any questions or information call the following numbers:
“We will continue to inform consumers and others concerned with newer releases, by prior agreement with the competent authorities. We understand consumers and our customers who trust us for so many years, for any disruption, “they said in their joint press release.

During the night of Monday December 19th 2016, a group of comrades decided to slightly heat up the urban winter by setting fire to social peace and apathy.
With just 5 liters of flammable material and infinite hatred of all Power, we took to Patission Street, stopped passing trolley buses and torched them after taking down all passengers and drivers.
Three burned trolley buses, one for each pretrial detention imposed on those arrested during clashes of December 6th 2016 in Athens.
Strength to the anarchist prisoner (CCF member) Panagiotis Argirou, who was recently sentenced by the State to 7 more years of captivity, this time for attempted arson on a bus in 2009.
Fire to the machines and the civilization!
