Jakarta: Claim of responsibility for shopping area arson by Anger Unit / ICR-FAI-IRF (Indonesia)

Sunday, February 24th, 2013

There is no reason to step back. War continues as always and must be more violent each and every time. All of the infrastructures of the society are our targets and there are no excuses to let one still stand against the beautiful sky. All the buildings are the walls against our sight to see the stars, the same stars which our imprisoned and guerrilla comrades in other part of the world are also seeing.

Through the fire, we want to send our warmest greetings to the knights warriors around the globe who still carry on attacks as our revolutionary way. To the brave and dignified prisoners who kept their head up against the misery and cowardice of ‘reformist’ anarchists.

Last night (Friday, 22 February), we burned down another property of Society. We placed an incendiary of fire in the middle-class shopping areas in North Jakarta. We burn the shops as our sample and to once again call the individuals to create their own attacks –especially in Indonesia and South East Asia. We showed through practice that each individual can bring their anger into fire and gasoline without the specializations of elite units. We are not vanguards or the messiah to save the Society. We are the angry individuals who only want to burn down Society.

Only cowards –even self-proclaimed as anarchists– who only see the fire is rising and covering the sky with dark smokes and doing nothing. Cowards are the integral parts of the Society who are always waiting for the ‘right moments’ and trying to keep their life in the comfort zones. And we point out the cowards as our enemies and we will hunt you down also. In the future, we will not feel sorry if in our actions to attack Society, we are risking the life of someone.

From now, we will limit our revolutionary greetings to the comrades who in our judgements are revolutionary. We will not let our fire warm the ‘innocent’, ‘reformist’, ‘pacifist’, ‘formal and pro-judicial anarchists’, ‘facebook anarchists’ and other cowards. Our actions always are only for ourselves and our individualistic values and for the revolutionary comrades.

And through the fire, we send our love to the imprisoned comrades: Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, the 4 anarchists who are recently accused for double robbery in Greece, Alfredo and Nicola and other comrades who accused in Operation Thor, Ixodae, Mangifuoco, and similar repressions in Italy, to Gabriel Pombo da Silva and to Marco Camenisch, to Marcelo, Juan, Fredy, Ivan & Carla in Chile, to Henry in Bolivia, to injured one Tripa Lopez in Mexico, to Tukijo and to the insurrectionary prisoners behind state bars who always kept their dignity and revolutionary values. We also want to send our love to the comrades on the run: Felicity, Hans and others. Keep running and do not let the enemies catch you.

Love and revolutionary greetings to the individuals, cells and groups of Informal Anarchist FederationInternational Revolutionary Front. Let’s surround Society with our fires.

War continues until the collapse of the society.

Reawakened investigation to revenge the lack of evidence against hungerstriker Alfredo Cospito (Italy)

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

From RadioAzione:

I received this piece of writing with an update on the situation of comrade Alfredo Cospito, who’s been on hunger strike since January 29 along with another comrade, Sergio Maria Stefani. Yet another search and another investigation against Alfredo. Obviously someone is very pissed off because their “very reliable” evidence is crumbling in the face of the tests carried out during the investigation. Obviously someone wants to strike while the iron is still hot for them… but be aware because some sparks could reach your eyes and the hot iron could burn you and prevent you from sleeping soundly and safely. Unconditional solidarity and complicity with Alfredo and all the other comrades.

RadioAzione

This is the text I received:

SEARCH AT THE AS2 UNIT OF THE SAN MICHELE PRISON IN ALESSANDRIA

February 19. From Alfredo Cospito’s solicitor we learn that this morning the ROS of Genoa delivered an investigation warrant to Alfredo Cospito, concerning an attack on the RIS [Technical Investigation Unit], carried out in Parma in… 2005. The comrade’s cell was raided in search of traces of the comrade’s DNA, after he had refused to give it spontaneously. We want to point out how this provocation by cops is being unleashed when Alfredo is at his 22nd day of hunger strike and a few weeks after tests on the motorcycle helmets were made precisely by the RIS of Parma investigating the wounding of the manager of Ansaldo Nucleare, tests which were negative in spite of the triumphant tones of the mass media at the time of the comrades’ arrest.

Having been humiliated, RIS, ROS, etc are having another try… Unconditional solidarity with Alfredo and all the comrades hit by repression.

PS. So far we’ve got no news of other comrades being searched or investigated. Updates will follow.

Concerning the 4 arrests in Kozani, Greece by CCF imprisoned members

Thursday, February 7th, 2013

ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE C.C.F.
Translated by Actforfreedomnow/boubourAs

If we speak, we speak because we do not abandon the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire in the cesspool of state propaganda. For the robbery in Kozani, the exclusivity is held by the arrestees themselves, who are not members of the Conspiracy. Besides, the conspiracy was not “hit” by these arrests and our perceptions as well as our cells remain unscathed…

However, because the state mechanism of propaganda is constantly referring to the Conspiracy, we clarify our position. Anarchist urban guerrillas are not “good kids”, neither do have the need to be defended by the hypocrites of humanism and the contractors of leftist sensitivity.

Anarchist urban guerrillas abandon the role of the victim in order to take positions as offenders against this passive silence of society.

We know that anarchist violence against the regime is the only way to liberation. Those who hesitate to arm themselves, will be proven too cowardly to live with dignity. Far from the humanistic rhetoric and crocodile tears over the beaten faces of the arrestees, specific choices were hit. The choice of robbing a bank aiming at the support of illegal aformalistic anarchist cells was, is and will be an anarchist practice.

In the war against the state and its society you do not ask for mercy from the enemy. Anarchists of praxis do not respect any bourgeois legality. The matter is not for someone to speak of police arbitrariness, but to attack first, here and now. Besides, life will always belong to one kind of people, the people of action.
Strength to the 4 anarchist hostages who are persecuted for the robbery in Kozani.
We support those who support their choices and remain unrepentant.

WE CREATE AND ORGANIZE 10, 100, 1000 CELLS OF THE CONSPIRACY…
LONG LIVE THE INFORMAL ANARCHIST FEDERATION (FAI/IRF)
EVERYTHING CONTINUES…

The imprisoned members of the C.C.F.

P.S. We wholeheartedly send our solidarity to comrades Alfredo Cospito and Sergio Maria Stefani who the screws of the Italian prisons forbid to have visits as well as our friend and hunger striker since 4/2/13 Spiros Dravilas who the greek “correctional” system vengefully deprives him of his days of leave.

Anarchist comrades Alfredo and Sergio on hunger strike (Italy)

Friday, February 1st, 2013

From RadioAzione via actforfree/B.pd:

From informa-azione.info we learn that two comrades, Alfredo Cospito – arrested following the investigation on the wounding of Ansaldo Nucleare manager Roberto Adinolfi, which occurred in May 2012 in Genoa – and Sergio Maria Stefani – arrested in June following operation ‘Ardire’ – have undertaken a hunger strike. From what we learn from the comrades of informa-azione, the reason for this protest is the refusal by the prison authority to allow visits to Alfredo and Sergio from their respective partners.

Update:

Since Tuesday January 29 comrades Alfredo Cospito and Sergio M. Stefani, imprisoned in the AS2 unit of the prison of Alessandria, have undertaken a hunger strike in order to obtain visits with their respective partners. We remind you that Alfredo has been denied visits with his partner since his arrest on September 14, as they were both investigated in the same case.

Sergio could get visits with his partner, but as she was detained following the same investigation he could only see her after she was released on December 21. He got three visits with her before the investigation passed from the prosecution of Perugia to that of Milan, which decided to deny these visits. There follows a short message with which the comrades make their protest known.

“The world of commodities, techno-industrial society and civilization itself are not based on individuals who are unpredictable and different from one another by their nature, but on the mass made homogenized by education, morals and the law.

In this world any sincere and profound relation becomes suspicious, affinity links are synonym of ‘criminal’ relations, solidarity is reduced to mere execution of orders.

But we refuse to reduce our desires to realism and to domesticate our passions. We live our lives without mediation, without being content and this gives us a smile on our face that never abandons us.

For this reason we cannot accept that anybody tries to cut our relations and we undertake hunger strike anticipating the sweetness of our partners’ embrace.”

Update on Nicola and Alfredo (Italy)

Sunday, January 13th, 2013

via informa-azione:

Yesterday, 10th January, a hearing was held in Genoa, presided by judge Cusatti, concerning the result of the text carried out by the RIS [carabinieri special unit, TN] on the motorcycle helmets found in Nicola’s house. Needless to say, the result was negative, in other words no trace of gunpowder compatible with that of the bullet that hit Ansaldo Nucleare manger Roberto Adinolfi was found. As usual the press of the regime (Secolo XIX, for example) took good care to make things confused and stated that traces of chemical substances compatible with ‘evidence of shooting’ (!) were found in Nicola’s house, a fact which the RIS investigation excluded. As for the next judicial appointment, the date for a preliminary hearing will be decided after the completion of examination of the hard disks seized in the comrades’ houses and as soon as the transcription of phone tapping is made available.

Tomohon: Vehicle arson by Argirou Cell / ICR – FRI – FAI (Indonesia)

Friday, January 11th, 2013

325 receives and transmits:

Last night [10/1/13], we did it once again. Direct action based on our revolutionary values, as nihilists, as individualists and as an expression of the hatred of this society. Covered by the night, we burned a private car in Tomohon (small city in North Sulawesi), owned by an unknown person. It was a car located near the local TV station in that town. A car as a symbol of slavery, eco-disaster and the meaninglessness of life.

We believe, through direct action each revolutionary can speak, even separated by continents and nation-state borders. We believe that revolutionary actions speak loud and reach our sisters and brothers in the Informal Anarchist Federation – International Revolutionary Front.

We dedicate our action to our brother in arms, Panagiotis Argirou, –revolutionary and proud member of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire— who fell down and has to face surgery. When we heard this news, it hurt our heart. We burned a car to send our warmest revolutionary greetings to you, comrade. To let our enemies know that no revolutionary will be left alone. Strength brother! Fire of health for you.

To other members of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and revolutionary anarchist, T. Mavropoulos: all of you are never alone. Our actions are also your revenge.

Not to forget to mention our brothers in Italy who are kidnapped by the state and are seized behind bars. To Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai. Our hearts always with both of you.

We also want to send our revolutionary greetings to Villa Amalias and all the free spaces that are invaded by our enemies. To all squatters who are kidnapped by pigs of the state. Your bravery inspires us to keep our heads up. ‘Fire’ is how we spell solidarity.

And to all anarchist prisoners: to Ivan and Carla, Freddy, Marcelo and Juan, in Chile, to Henry in Bolivia, to John Bowden, to Gabriel Pombo da Silva, to Marco Camenisch, and others around the world. This fire is a metaphor of hugs from us full of respect, solidarity and anger against Power.

Salute!

Letter from Alfredo Cospito… (Italy)

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

Recently Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai invited various comrades and parts of the international anarchist movement to send them written material during their imprisonment on remand. The comrades are accused of the laming of CEO Roberto Adinolfi of Ansaldo Nucleare.

Dear comrades,
Here are two letters that comrade Alfredo Cospito, locked up in Alessandria, sent to me. In a previous letter Alfredo had written to ‘Umanità Nova’, the paper of the Italian Anarchist Federation [the ‘formal’ one, TN]. The Federation’s reply can be read in the second letter I’m sending.
These sort of priests of anarchy have once again lost their chance to shut up, as they called the comrades of the Informal FAI ‘infamous’ or worse. Alfredo asked for the letters to be made public. I therefore published them on the blog of RadioAzione and now I’m sending them to you.
A rebel hug!

Open letter to “Umanità Nova”.
Alessandria, 29th December 2012

In my life I’ve never worried about the ‘heavy burden’ of reading ‘Umanità Nova’, nor did I waste my time criticizing the Italian Anarchist Federation, which I must confess is the least of my worries. And this even before I ended up in jail.
The only ‘infamous’ things in this ridiculous story are your stupid words ‘in freedom’ [the subtitle of their paper, TN].
What do you know about my positions? Who would be those mysterious people close to me?
However, one thing is clear now, at least to me: the comrades who accuse you of being cowardly and more are right. Sadly, there’s no end to the worst.

Please note: My letters are subjected to censorship and they all pass to the public prosecutor’s hands. I am aware that this is an insignificant detail in view of your intransigent revolutionary life, but next time please count to ten before you go on with your bullshit. Spare yourself sending me your paper, I’ll try to come to terms with it.
Always for anarchy.

Alfredo Cospito

This is the letter from ‘Umanità Novà’:

Hi Alfredo,
We received your letter where you ask for ‘Umanità Nova’ and the paper will be sent to you, after the Christmas holidays, as we do with all prisoners who wish to get the paper.
But we are extremely surprised at the fact you want our paper to be sent to you, as you and those close to you have been attacking us in all possible ways for years, calling us reformists, pacifists, cowardly, chicken-shit, book worms, etc etc. And you have always viewed our paper as something no better than toilet paper.
You’ll understand we are surprised by this request made form the height of your revolutionary intransigence.
Perhaps did you change positions? (If so, fell free to tell us, we promise we won’t tell anyone else…)
Did you mistake us with Infamous FAI?
Or perhaps do you want to know something about the position of the enemy?
Let us know and have a good read.

Umanità Nova

'FAI / ELF New Horizons of Burning Rage' take responsibility for media sabotage (UK)

Friday, January 4th, 2013


FAI/ELF COMMUNIQUE FOR TV & RADIO BLACKOUT

As part of the ongoing anarchist war for total liberation, we carried out a hit on the Bathampton radio and TV relay station. Fires were set at four points of the structures, and we left undisturbed. As a result of the sabotage, on top of causing hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of damage, we regionally shut down all TV channels on Freeview as well as all national analogue and digital radio stations. Additionally it took down Vodaphone and other mobile networks, damaging police communications and other digital services. 80,000 homes and businesses in the area were affected.

The entertainment industry is an important tool to manipulate human behaviour.
Without a steady supply of distractions it would be much harder to persuade people that their lives are satisfactory, to convince them to keep going to work or in whatever way to reproduce the system. So to deprive the network of the ability to offer this essential means of escape from chronic modern stress, anxiety, frustration and dissatisfaction is to undermine the smooth running of society, however temporarily.

There are many soft targets and many lo-tech methods available for us malcontents who gladly choose conflict over despair. This gives rise to the prospect of rebellion with thousands of faces, with infinite reasons to blockade and destroy whatever stands between us and our goals. We want to experience harmony as a living planet, face to face encounter as intimate circles of proud and free-thinking individuals, and a chance to mould an existence filled with wild play and fierce joy. Our first response when faced with today’s crushing domination and a subservient society will always be outbreaks of disorder, refusal and beauty.

Our comrades from far and wide who also carry this fight share our thoughts so closely that often their words could be ours. So when they are kidnapped and held far away from us our determination is only further fuelled. Following many actions in Italy the state has unleashed a wave of repression against anarchists and their projects (Operations Ardire, Mangiafuoco, Ixodidae, Thor…), some across borders, accusing some of attacks of the FAI (Informal Anarchist Federation) and raising a trophy for the media-judicial circus: Nicola Gai and Alfredo Cospito, who they claim are FAI / Olga Cell. But if the prosecutors thought for one minute that they had dismantled the group even in Italy with their operations, another cell soon proved them wrong with an attack on the banking system in the capital, followed by grid sabotage in Indonesia, gunshots in Mexico, liberations in Russia, bombing in Greece, mass arson in Argentina, to name but a few. The new anarchist guerrillas laugh in the faces of the powerful because the repression is only throwing petrol on the fires of the open leaderless resistance.

We are on the side of everyone who has burnt stuffy textbooks and taken the offensive to reanimate an anarchy that had turned to dust in so many throats. Any rebel’s capture becomes yet another motive to strike, as we have before and will again, as a reminder of the social cost of their imprisonment.

This action carried out eight years to the day since Xosé Tarrio (a dignified prisoner of Spain’s FIES isolation units, against which a series of attacks last decade were later claimed by the first generation of the FAI) died in the cells, leaving his blood on the hands of the jailers, courts and cops.

Frontpage article from Italy considers the laming of Ansaldo Nucleare CEO Roberto Adinolfi, the zine also includes letters from imprisoned anarchist comrades, news and a direct action/sabotage round-up. Gabriel Pombo da Silva penned a letter in solidarity with Marco Camenisch this month, Marco is a persecuted eco-anarchist standing firm against the inquisition of nun Manuela Comodi in Italy and the prison authorities of Switzerland.

Updates and considerations on Nicola and Alfredo’s arrest by Anna Beniamino (Italy)

Friday, December 7th, 2012

From RadioAzione – Translated by act for freedom now/B.pd

Nicola Gai and Alfredo Cospito were arrested on September 14 2012 and accused of being the perpetrators of Ansaldo [Nucleare] manager Roberto Adinolfi’s wounding, an action which occurred on May 7 2012 in Genoa and claimed by the Olga FAI/FRI nucleus in the following days. Genoa prosecutors Silvio Franz and Nicola Piacente ordered the arrest with the charge of ‘attack with purposes of murder ‘(art. 280 of the penal code), and justified the demand for remand in custody of the two comrades following investigation results which ‘indicate’ risk of escape and reiteration of the crime (the mere awareness of being investigated becomes here instrumental evidence of guilt, coherence with one’s anarchist principles becomes a sign of dangerousness).
