Letter from Chilean Insurrectionists to the Informal Anarchist Federation

January 2nd, 2011

Thursday 30 of December of 2010

Collaborative Solidarity

We want to salute the FAI – Revolutionary Group Lambros Foundas, on the recent attacks against the embassies of Chile and Switzerland, in Italy. And with regard to the criticisms made about these actions by the political prisoners of Revolutionary Struggle (Greece), the comrades Pola Rupa, Nikos Maziotis and Kostas Gornas, we say they are within their rights to issue communications and to criticize the actions of other insurrectionalist groups. But we want to say that any civil servant of an embassy of the State of Chile is a political target, and we do not view them as we would another person because they are representatives and protoges of the system and it’s institutions.

Today we indicate that any civil servant of a diplomatic institution, the ambassador of the borders, is a potential target of attack, as a representative of the terror machine which are the nation-states. From here we want to say to the Informal Anarchist Federation – We hope that they get to hear our voices – that we are proud of the federated group called “Brothers in Arms – Nucleus Mauricio Morales/FAI”.

With words and deeds, this is our internationalism. To the dear Mauricio, we took it into our hearts. His death, and of all the revolutionaries fallen in combat, is an eternal call to fight. They will be vindicated by all comrades who send themselves to the joy of the combat, anywhere in the world. Their names and their examples fly freely. They are not the property of anybody.

HONOUR AND GLORY TO THE COMRADE MAURICIO MORALES!

HONOUR AND GLORY TO COMRADE LAMBROS FOUNDAS!

THE FAI LIVES!

From the territory of Chile,

Some Rebels.

Attacks against Police Station & Probation Office, Bristol (UK)

January 2nd, 2011

1 January 2010

“January the First. Anarchists saw in the new year 2011 with attacks on both Newfoundland road police station and the probation office on Upper York street using easily found stones.

With our action, we breathe revolutionary solidarity for the next year and beyond to all those engaged in struggle against the state and capitalism in whatever forms across the planet. we especially think of those behind bars who became rebels and have risen up and burned Ford prison. we identify with them, as it would seem we both wish for jails to become ashes in this moment. each moment cannot fail to bring us closer to the conclusion we already knew – the only way out of this society that with its cctv cameras, cops, conformity, e-surveillance, snitches and repression of dissent begins to resemble the prison more closely. so we in turn continue our own project of desire for total liberation so attacking that which attacks us.

To the pigs and their apologists – we will strike again soon. happy new year.

Love & rage across borders, until every wall falls.

Anarchist greetings to the enemy’s hostages of ours, known and unknown to us, including:

Giannis Dimitrakis, Gerasimos Tsakalos, Panagiotis Argyrou in Greece
John Bowden in UK
Jock Palfreeman in Bulgaria
Thomas Meyer Falk, Gabriel Pombo da Silva in Germany
Aleksey Bychin in Russia
Marco Camenisch, Luca Bernasconi, Costantino Ragusa, Silvia Guerini in Switzerland”

Winter parcel bombs for Rome Embassies from Informal Anarchist Federation (Italy) + Statement from comrades of the Revolutionary Struggle (Greece)

December 28th, 2010

23 December 2010

Parcel bombs explode at the Chilean and Swiss Embassies in Rome. 1 mail-room employee in each embassy is injured.

“We Have Decided To Make Our Voice Heard With Words And With Facts, We Will Destroy The System Of Dominance, Long Live The FAI, Long Live Anarchy.”

Informal Anarchist Federation – FAI – Revolutionary Cell Lambros Foundas

27 December 2010

Parcel bomb sent to the Greek Embassy in Rome. It is intercepted and defused.

“We’re striking again, and we do so in response to the appeal launched by our Greek comrades the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.”

“For this reason we’re sending this new attack to a structure that represents the Greek state and its servants, in solidarity with our comrades arrested in Athens and the Conspiracy’s project which, like ours, is based on the action and method of revolutionary violence.”

(Greece) Statement of three jailed members of the organisation Revolutionary Struggle in relation to the attacks on the embassies in Rome)

“With regard to the parcel-bombs that were sent to the embassies of Chile and Switzerland in Rome on the 23/12/2010, that had as a result the injury of two employees, that was undertaken by the organisation “Informal Anarchist Federation – FAI – Revolutionary Cell Lambros Foundas”, we have to declare the following: As Revolutionary Struggle we selected always the realisation of actions that were politically aimed. They were aimed at the arrangement of the institutions and those that represented and protected them. We organised in such a way, so that injuries of persons that are not included in our political objectives is avoided and we would not allow such actions that would have that as a result. e.g the accidental wounding of an employee of an embassy, as it became in the previously mentioned attacks with the parcel-bombs. This perspective was always the basic beginning for the action of all of us, and naturally, our dead companion and member of our organisation, Lambros Foundas. For this reason, we ask do not make actions of such type in the name of our comrade.”

Pola Roupa, Nikos Maziotis, Kostas Gournas



OPEN LETTER TO THE ANARCHIST AND ANTI-AUTHORITARIAN MOVEMENT

Released by the FAI (Informal) in 2003 after a series of letter-bomb attacks against State targets across the EU.

As the consolidation of the EU is going on quickly and assuming all the wickedness of the political, economic, military-repressive choices of the various States, and as a European constitution that re-establishes and legitimates EU dominion is about to be ratified, the first Informal Anarchist Federation struggle campaign has started. We could not deny ourselves the pleasure of actively criticising the six-month’s Italian presidency of the EU, which is coming to an end. We are aware that, behind any official rhetoric, the decisions that have been taken during the last months will bring about new practises of exploitation and dominion. In Fortress Europe, where not only the borders between exploiters and exploited are defended with the arms, we oppose trade agreements and the militarization of the territory with free agreements between those who struggle against dominion, as we want to demonstrate that not only is the struggle possible, but it is also an absolute necessity.

Today we have attacked the repressive apparatus that plays the democratic farce and that will bring the main characters and institutions to the new European order:

-The various police departments, which will soon be backed by a European army, besides their traditional task of internal repression, have the basic mission of filtering the huge masses of poor people who want to step into Fortress Europe. In fact, only the workforce needed by the bosses is allowed to get in, the others are sent back to be exploited in their countries of origin.

-A prison system, which is more and more crowded and widespread, is consolidating its main role into repression. It is the last bastion in defence of the system, whereas starving salaries and the last remnants of the welfare are not sufficient to stem the anger of the exploited.

-Bureaucrats and politicians are always ready to plan and promote any adjustment that serves to keep the system alive. The actions carried out today, as well as the ones that will follow, are planned so as to avoid the possibility of striking innocent people. We will carry on demonstrating our profound hatred for the State and capital and our unbounded love for a world free from the dominion of men over men and of men over nature. We are not the only ones, nor are we the last. In every street, in the day and in the night, we see that the same destructive-constructive tension for a better world is growing. We were in Genoa, we were in Saloniki, we were on the Italian roads last night, and tomorrow we will be on new roads to fight the misery of the existent.

Attack and destroy the responsible for repression and exploitation!

Attack and destroy prisons, banks, courts and police stations!

Revolt is contagious and can be reproduced!

Social war against capital and the State!

WHO WE ARE
We have created the Informal Anarchist Federation, that is to say a federation formed either by groups of action or by single individuals, in order to go beyond the limits implied in single projects and to experiment the real potentialities of informal organisation. We strongly believe that only a chaotic and horizontal organisation, without bosses, authorities or central committees taking decision, can fulfil our need for freedom here and now. Our goal is to have an organisation reflecting the view of the anarchist society, which we struggle for. This is intended as an instrument and not as the copy of some old armed party or as an organisation looking for adepts. If it were not an instrument to be used for testing the efficiency of informal organisation and its capacity of strengthening quality and continuity of the revolutionary action, it would be absolutely useless and would certainly die out. Through widespread actions it is possible to conciliate organisation and theoretical/practical debate on the one hand, and the anonymity of groups/individuals on the other. Actions, in fact, besides bringing their specific message of destruction/construction, also propose other kinds of message, such as the ones implied in their methods and instruments. In this case the damage caused does not matter. We are aware that it will not be a well-armed minority group that will stir up revolution, and we are determined not to postpone our insurrection waiting for everybody to be ready: we are more and more convinced that a simple direct action against institutions is more effective than thousands of words.

FEDERATION because of its widespread horizontal structure, that is to say federation of groups or individuals, free and equal men and women bond together by common practises of attack against dominion and aware that mutual support and revolutionary solidarity are instruments of freedom. Relationships inside the federation are stable and flexible at the same time; they evolve continuously thanks to the ideas and practices brought in by new individuals and groups that will join. We do not want any democratic federation, as this would involve representatives, delegates, official meetings, committees, and organs implying the election of leaders, charismatic figures and the imposition of specialists of speech. In the informal federation, communication must be based on a horizontal and anonymous debate, which will come out of the practise (claims of actions) and of the widespread of theories through the means of communication of the movement. In other words, the meeting will be substituted by an anonymous and horizontal debate between groups or individuals who communicate through practise. The federation is our strength, that is to say the strength of groups or individuals that help one another through a well-defined pact of mutual support.

ANARCHIST because we want the destruction of capital and the State. We want a world where only freedom and self-organisation ‘dominate’, and a society where exploitation of men over men and of men over nature does not exist. We strongly oppose any Marxist cancer, which is nothing more than a fascinating and dangerous siren that claims freedom for the oppressed but actually denies the possibility of a free society and just substitutes one dominion with another.

INFORMAL because we do not believe in vangards nor do we think that we are an enlightened active minority. We just want to live as anarchists here and now and this is why we consider the informal organisation as the only kind of organisation capable of preventing the creation of any authoritarian and bureaucratic mechanism. It allows us to keep our independence as individuals and/or groups and to resist power with continuity. The Informal Anarchist Organisation practises the armed struggle but it refuses classic monolithic organisations implying a base, regular and irregular members, columns, executive cadres, huge amounts of money and living on hiding. We think that this kind of structures is an easy target for power. In fact, an infiltrated cop or an informer is sufficient to have the whole organisation or a good part of it collapsed like a house of cards. On the contrary, as the informal organisation is formed by 1000 individuals or groups that do not know one another (as they recognize one another through the actions they carry out and the mutual support bonding them), if by some unfortunate chance infiltrators or informers should come out, this would affect a single group without spreading to the others. Furthermore, whoever takes part into the Informal organisation is a militant only when preparing and carrying out an action. The organisation, therefore, does not affect the entire life and projects of the comrades so that all kinds of armed-struggle sectarianism are avoided. Once we are well rooted, power will find it very difficult to destroy us.

The pact of mutual support is the strong point of the Anarchist Informal Organisation and it pivots on three key points based on the above mentioned anarchist revolutionary project, and that come into play when individuals or groups decide to join the Anarchist Informal Organisation:

1. REVOLUTIONARY SOLIDARITY
Each group of action in the Anarchist Informal Organisation is engaged in showing revolutionary solidarity to comrades who are arrested or are on hiding. This solidarity will show itself mainly through armed action and the attack against men and structures responsible for the imprisonment of comrades. Solidarity will always be practised as an indispensable feature of anarchist way of life and action. Of course we do not refer to legal and technical support: bourgeois society offers a sufficient number of lawyers, social workers and priests, which means that revolutionists can be engaged in another kind of activities.

2. REVOLUTIONARY CAMPAIGNS
When a group or individual starts a revolutionary campaign through the deeds and related communiqués, other groups and individuals in the Anarchist Informal Organisation will follow according to their methods and time. Each group or individual can launch a struggle campaign on specific targets through one or more actions signed by the single group or individual and by the claim of the Federation. If a campaign is not agreed by the other groups, the critic will show itself through actions and communiqués that will contribute to correcting or discussing it.

3. COMMUNICATION BETWEEN GROUPS OR INDIVIDUALS
The groups of action in the Anarchist Informal Organisation are not required to know one another. This will avoid repression to strike them and possible leaders or bureaucrat from emerging. Communication between groups or individuals is carried out through the actions and through the channels of the movement without them to know one another directly.

P.S. Any reference to the FAI Italian Transport Workers Federation (Federazione Autotrasportatori Italiani), to the FAI Italian Anarchist Federation (Federazione Anarchica Italiana) and to the FAI Italian Fund for the Environment (Fondo Italiano per l’Ambiente) is a pure coincidence. We apologise to the people concerned.

Rome, Italy – The boy wounded at the Chilean embassy is Cesar

from Informa-Azione

We have received and are forwarding a few lines of an e-mail received in recent days:

“The Chilean boy wounded by the letter bomb is Cesar. A comrade and a friend involved with the experience of Ciclofficina Popolare (people’s bike workshop) of the Ex Lavanderia (the former laundry).

We found out today.

Suddenly, for us, the natural compassion for an injured person is no longer tempered by anonymity.
Behind this story of national importance there is a person whose name, face and voice we know.

Now Cesar is in hospital, with two fingers less and we are angry. […]”

Since the 29th of November, we, the three political prisoners of the underground special wing 6 of Korydallos, defendants in the case of Revolutionary Struggle, participated in the mobilizations of the prisoners of all prisons, which either with prison food abstention, or with hunger strikes, fight for the improvement of certain provisions of the C.C. (Correctional Code) regarding the leave days, probation and disciplinary matters, decent treatment and improvement of the detainment conditions, the abolition of certain draconian penal provisions, special detainment conditions, reduction of the life sentence, as well as the release of disabled prisoners and cancer patients.

March to commemorate 16 year boy shot during a robbery in a jewellery shop. Cops attacked, cars burnt (Belgium)

December 19th, 2010

Early December – TUBIZE – During a robbery in a jewellery, a youngster, Flavien (16 years), is killed by the owner of the jewellery shop. The robbers were two, they had fake weapons with them. The owner used his hunting rifle to kill one and to hold the other one, Hassan, till the police arrived. Hassan is now in prison and refuses to collaborate with the police.

A few days later, friends of Flavien organised a march to commemorate their friend and to march to the jewellery. About 100 youngsters showed up next to the small city centre . The Federal Police and anti-riot squads were very present and blocked the centre completely, while the mayor prohibited all gathering. At the beginning of the march, some people started to attack the cops with stones. Then the family of Flavien arrived, asking for calm and saying literally “we are not here to make revolution”. The march ended therefore calmly.

In the days following the march, cars were put on fire in several regions around Tubize and in the French speaking part of Belgium:

8/12/2010, Tubize: car put on fire in the “Street of Democracy”.
8/12/2010, Charleroi: three cars put on fire.
9/12/2010, Jemeppe: five cars put on fire on different spots of the small city.
9/12/2010, Ottignies: car put on fire on the parking of the station in the “Lane of Human Rights”.
9/12/2010, Liège: four cars put on fire on different spots.

"My name's 'Go fuck yourself'": words for the judge after an attempted cop-killing (UK)

December 19th, 2010

From mainstream media:

“A man charged with the attempted murder of two police officers was remanded in custody today after hurling abuse from the dock. Unemployed John Paul Onyenaychi, 30, is accused of stabbing Pc Paul Madden, 23, and Piotr Dolata, 27, a police community support officer (PCSO) on Wednesday (15/12/10). The two officers were injured at a bus stop in New Broadway in Ealing, west London. PCSO Dolata’s life was saved by a quick-thinking doctor who was passing by and was able to stem the bleeding. Onyenaychi, of east London, was also charged with attempting to cause grievous bodily harm against a second PCSO, Steven Constable. Surrounded in the dock by 10 police officers at Brent Magistrates’ Court, Onyenaychi refused to confirm his name, date of birth and address before launching into an expletive-filled tirade.

Shouting at District Judge Margot Coleman when asked for his full name, John Paul said: “My name’s ‘go fuck yourself’” …. When his solicitor Aneurin Brewer appeared in court, he continued: “You’re not my ******* solicitor. You’re not representing me.”

The hearing continued in Onyenaychi’s absence after District Judge Coleman ordered he be taken back to the cell, before telling Mr Brewer, ‘He was being extremely abusive and I’m not prepared to tolerate that behaviour in my courtroom.’


There was no application for bail and Onyenaychi was remanded on two counts of attempted murder and one count of attempting to cause grievous bodily harm with intent. He will appear at the Old Bailey on March 25. PCSO Dolata was released from hospital after being treated for his injuries while Pc Madden remained in a ‘serious but stable condition’ after undergoing surgery. The officers, who were based in Ealing Borough, were checking bus fares when they were attacked at around 3pm on the busy shopping street.'”

For Riotous Assemblies not Reasonable Dissent (UK)

December 16th, 2010

The atmosphere of UK State repression and ‘queen’s peace’ was definitively broken on the 10th November 2010, when the Millbank Tower, Conservative Party HQ, was stormed by a mob of malcontents, during a demonstration against student fees.

The roof-top scenes of occupation and property destruction dispelled the long-held belief that the cops have the upper hand on the streets of the United Kingdom, and especially in the open-CCTV-prison of London. Something much more occurred that day than the complete trashing of the ruling political party’s headquarters in the capital city – an aching festive class violence was openly expressed and transmitted everywhere via global media, to all others in resistance around the world.

Sentence of the Nottetempo appeal trial (Italy)

December 14th, 2010

9th December 2010

As usually goes with the justice of the system, things turned badly for the comrades on trial: not only have some of the requests of the public prosecutor been accepted but those who had been acquitted in the first grade of the trial have also been charged.

The story is by now well known. Operation Nottetempo started in May 2005 when searches were carried out all over Italy and five comrades from Lecce were arrested and detained for almost two years in preventive arrest. Read the rest of this entry »
