Santiago: Atentado incendiario contra la facultad de ciencias exactas de la Universidad Andrés Bello + Comunicado (Chile)
Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016
Cerca de las 3:00 de la madrugada del 24 de enero del 2016 rápidamente
se desata un incendio en la facultad de ciencias exactas en la
Universidad Andres Bello, ubicada en las intersecciones de Republica con
Sazie, en pleno centro de Santiago.
La violencia de las llamas consumió por completo las oficinas del pos
doctorado del departamento de Química, física, Matemática como también
las oficinas del decanato y la sala de profesores, además de dañar en
parte la facultad de educación, sin producir daños en personas.
Es recién a las 6 de la mañana que las distintas compañías de bomberos
pudieron controlar el incendio. (more…)

Cerca de las 4:00 AM de la madrugada del 29 de enero del 2016 un grupo
de encapuchados lanza un coctel molotov a la sede del partido de extrema
derecha, Unión Demócrata Independiente (UDI), ubicado en la calle Suecia
N°286, comuna de providencia.
La bomba incendiaria revienta en un muro al interior de la sede
produciendo un amago de incendio. Rápidamente personal de bomberos llega
controlando las llamas, para luego miembros de la PDI realice las

A las 03:40 de la madrugada del 18 de enero del 2016, la cámara de
vigilancia del banco BCI ubicado en la comuna de Maipu en la avenida
pajaritos a la altura del paradero 17 capto a un encapuchado dejando un
artefacto sospechoso en el sector de los cajeros automáticos.
Finalmente el objeto resulto ser un artefacto incendiario compuesto
principalmente de un bidón de bencina, mas un sistema que no alcanzo a
ser ignición dejando lamentablemente los cajeros y la infraestructura
Al día siguiente, tras percatarse de este elemento rápidamente fueron
los bastardos del GOPE y demases policías especializadas a desactivar
Ricardo Barriga, mayor de la 25 Comisaria de Maipú señalo: “Se logra
establecer que hay elementos que revisten alguna característica de
artefacto incendiario, con lo cual se efectúa el protocolo de rigor,
concurrencia del equipo del GOPE, estableciéndose la presencia de
algunos elementos que podrían hacer establecer científicamente respecto
a algún artefacto explosivo”,
Finalmente la investigación quedo en manos de la fiscalía sur,
autodenominada especialista en casos de atentados explosivos o
incendiarios, sin que hasta el momento existan reivindicaciones del
ataque al entramado financiero.

“Contra la tiranía de la realidad que se ha impuesto a la gente, elijo
siempre el realismo mágico de la anarquía y la revolución que nunca se
termina.” Christos Tsakalos.
Luchar por la libertad incluye combatir la impunidad de quienes reprimen
y vigilan nuestras vidas.
Abrimos fuegos el 2016 durante la noche del día domingo 03 de enero
atacando con un artefacto incendiario de activación retardada las
oficinas centrales de ISP Services, empresa de seguridad privada creada
por un ex agente de inteligencia de la dictadura chilena quien, como
muchos otros ex agentes de la represión dicatorial, desarrollaron sus
propios negocios de seguridad en el ámbito privado una vez llegada la
democracia. Nuestro fuego logró dañar con éxito parte de la fachada del
edificio ubicado en calle Lord Cochrane, en el centro de Santiago.
Estamos concientes de que las empresas de guardias, cámaras y
televigiancia son un negocio rentable sustentado en la ideología de la
seguridad, promovida por el Estado/Capital y avalada por la mayoría
social que, sin cuestionarse los discursos del poder, reproduce y
defiende la idea de la Seguridad Total, contenta de que en cada esquina
y barrio aparezcan más cámaras, guardias y policías.
Encendiedo nuestro fuego insurgente en las narices de quienes vigilan,
demostramos una vez más la vulnerabilidad de la red de la dominación,
potenciando nuestras decisiones, relaciones y prácticas cotidianas en el
ataque directo contra los edificios, representantes, administradores/as
y defensores/as del control social.
Lo hemos dicho y lo reafirmamos una vez más: el poder nunca es
invulnerable, el ataque anarquista siempre es posible.
Desde la informalidad antiautoritaria nos organizamos sin especialistas,
sin líderes ni jerarquías, para llevar a cabo la praxis de la
conspiración anarquista contra el poder, dando continuidad a través del
fuego al proyecto de la Federación Anarnquista Informal/ Frente
Revolucionario Internacional, porque la FAI/FRI cobra vida allí donde
cualquier individux, célula o grupo forjan con su propia AUTONOMÍA el
ATAQUE DIRECTO, sin dar pie a dudas sobre sus intenciones, con un actuar
certero y no indiscriminado, con la SOLIDARIDAD y el INTERNACIONALISMO
anárquico como elementos esenciales de una sedición liberadora sin
centros ni periferia que rompe la normalidad opresora y construye en el
presente la perspectiva de la Libertad Total.
Que acciones como esta motiven a la planificación de más y mejores
igniciones e incendios contra la miseria del orden establecido, siempre
recordando combinar los aprendizajes sobre cómo fabricar artefactos
incendiarios/explosivos con los conocimientos necesarios sobre cómo
dezplazarnos de forma segura a través de la ciudad al momento de
emprender la acción conspiradora y clandestina.
¡Combinemos las diversas formas de lucha para derrumbar este y cualquier
sistema de vida basado en el poder y la explotación!
Saludamos a quienes respondieron con propaganda y acción la iniciativa
para un Dicimebre Negro propuesta desde las cárceles griegas por los
compañeros Panagiotis Argirou y Nikos Romanos. Que el ímpetu por la
acción y el debate no se detenga, que continúe, se proyecte y concrete
en estrategias de lucha y más actos de insurrección que obstaculicen y
pongan en peligro los planes del poder.
Saludamos a cada presx en lucha que se mantiene dignx y consecuente en
las cárceles del mundo civilizado.
Saludamos la vida en lucha del guerrero mapuche Matías Catrileo,
asesinado hace 8 años (3 de enero de 2008) por las balas de la
democracia percutidas en esa ocasión por el policia Walter Ramírez
Espinoza en medio de una acción de recuperación de tierras ancestrales.
Saludamos a cada humanx y animal que lucha por su libertad pasando a la
acción contra el mundo de la autoridad.
Y a nuestros compañerxs de la FAI/FRI, nos encontraremos nuevamente en
el vuelo del Fénix.
¡Qué viva la Coordinación Informal de la Acción Anarquista Multiforme en
todo el mundo!

A few nights ago, in the city of Utrecht, the Netherlands, a vehicle of Otto
Workforce was set on fire. Otto Workforce is a job agency with a reputation of
exploiting people by ignoring the standard conditions, underpayment, forcing people
to work extreme over hours etc.
The action is dedicated to all who are repressed by the capitalist society,
imprisoned or killed by the bullets of pigs.
For a Black December! For a free society!

In recent years, in the name of an ever-increasing security and the quashing of terrorism and criminality, repression has intensified by various means: ever-larger policing, security guards, wiretapping, monitoring of all electronic media, surveillance cameras which are installed in every neighbourhood by now, and security systems that protect everyone’s property.
All this always occurs with the consent of those who eagerly expose every aspect of their daily routine, for the sake of their property’s safeguarding and under the illusion that they have control over their lives.
It is understandable that domination continually evolves technology to its benefit and, through diffused fear, largely acquires control over every location of metropolises.
That is where the wager is placed for a minority of people who don’t give a damn about the modern lifestyle, but instead experiment, conspire and continue the hostilities against domination, its civilisation and the culture of the living dead, who may voluntarily become snitches.
In the early hours of Friday 11th December, in the context of Black December, we placed an incendiary device at a security systems store on Formionos Street in the neighbourhood of Vyronas.
We dedicate this act to all anarchists behind prison walls.
LONG LIVE ANARCHY
PS. We don’t know why this action was concealed by the mass media, but we don’t give a damn about the reason why.

“I would also point out that arson
is the least-solved crime in the United States,
and that gasoline is really cheap, and matches are free.”
Sean Swain, longterm anarchist prisoner;
excerpt from his text for Black December
On Saturday night, early Sunday December 13th, we chose to carry out an incendiary attack against the military officers club in Rethymno. This act comes as a response to the call of incarcerated comrades for a Black December. We want our act to complement the mosaic of direct actions taking place during the current month, in the frame of informal coordination of insurrectionary anarchy, at both local and international levels. To us it’s evident that those in anarchy’s milieu are drawn to opposite poles; the aged reformist pole and the insurrectionary one. So, naturally, we have “allied” with those who choose to walk on the path of fire, attack and direct action.
As regards the selected target, we want to point out that the role of the army is none other than repressing (we are aware that the army plays a decisive role in repressing migrants and refugees at Evros and the islands), cultivating a national esprit among executioners-citizens who are eager to swallow any nationalistic propaganda, and making sure the Greek military staff have excellent cooperation with their colleagues at NATO. For all the above and even more reasons, we chose to bring the fire there where they peacefully sleep and eat. We will always be against the medals awarded by the State to its minions.
We send our comradely greetings to all incarcerated comrades of the R.O. Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (CCF), to the five anarchist prisoners of the Network of Imprisoned Fighters (DAK) who chose to “answer” the call, to incarcerated comrades abroad, and all comrades of insurrectionary anarchy that have already attacked or prepare to attack.
The paths of fire and insurgency bring those on the outside closer to the comrades inside the walls… We burn the rottenness of inaction and reformism with fire…
Black December is just the beginning…

Llamado a la insurrección antiautoritaria.
Por un diciembre negro con nuestros caidos en la memoria.
Saludos. Mediante este comunicado nos presentamos como grupo en la forma que creemos mas indicada (nuestras acciones son lo que importa, no nuestros rostros), también invitamos a combatir el letargo practicando la insurrección antiautoritaria y a nutrirnos de ella.
Hace unas semanas con unos objetos envueltos en llamas bloqueamos una autopista en Lima y dejamos algunos mensajes. El motivo fue atacar el funcionamiento del orden impuesto por el Poder. No pedimos reformas, no pedimos jefes mas “buenitos”, no pedimos gobernantes que roben o que hagan obras, no pedimos trabajo o aumento si no su abolición.
Con esta acción apoyamos la ofensiva anarquista alrededor del mundo, en especial el DICIEMBRE NEGRO (venganza por los asesinatos de los companieros Alexandros Grigoropulos y Sebastian Oversluij).
Asimismo bienvenidx sea quien asista al llamado y rompa el papel de espectador. Te afecta a ti, a mí y a los que se oponen a este mundo de dominación consciente o inconscientemente.
Libertad a lxs anarquistas presxs.
Viva la propaganda pro el hecho.
Libertad a todos los animales.
Saludos a los miembros de las Celulas del fuego, Monica Caballero y Fransisco Solar.
Apoyo total a quienes no esperan la rebelion de las masas para salir a atacar.

viva Alexis 06.12.2008
7 years ago an anarchist rebellion began in Greece which then spread internationally and still continues. Despite numerous attempts to torture and kill our comrades around the world we have refused to be intimidated and the state repression has only made us stronger.
In the context of Black December we torched two vehicles at a Suzuki dealership hoping that the fire would illuminate the building. Suzuki regularly supply the Greek state with new vehicles so they can torture better such as those used for counterinsurgency by Delta squad.
Suzuki motorcycles are used by these minions of the recently reappointed Greek regime against it’s population in the field.
We dedicate our action to Alexandros Grigoropoulos who was murdered in Exarcheia on the night of December 6, 2008.
We are aware of the purely symbolic nature of our action and are also aware that in the metropoles these actions are hardly noticed, however, we hope that the few who did notice imitate us and share our destructive intentions by launching their own operations to attack the system.
There are always plenty of reasons at any time to unleash destructive intention and attack hated (un-)state institutions and their servants.
These years of lethargy should have been taken advantage of so that we could regroup and discuss new methods of direct action.
for a Black December

In the fiery craters of our inner volcanoes, made with the lava of emotion and the fire of passion, we’ve fed our lust for life… And to Society that wanted to impose its laws and its morals on us, we will firmly respond with our “no,” while all others repeat their cowardly “yes.”(Enzo Martucci)
In the early hours of Friday December 4th [in Lycabettus area in Athens], we approached the house of the high priest of corruption, and former Minister of PASOK party, Kostas Laliotis and placed incendiary devices at his home entrance and his car.
As has rightly been said, the responsibilities of those who have served in administration centres of the capitalist machine can neither be forgotten nor retire.
Kostas Laliotis has been one of the most corrupt politicians following the metapolitefsi [transitional period after the fall of the Greek military junta]; his name and trajectory are linked to greed, deception, scheming, interwoven interests and arrogance, all of which are basic and integral characteristics of puppets staffing the political personnel of capitalist domination.
Maggots like Kostas Laliotis and his likes should be beaten or shot; they should see their houses burn, and live their miserable and crappy life in fear.
The fires of anarchist insurgency that lit at the house of a powerful former state official of the establishment was a contribution to the call for a Black December, which is spreading inside and outside the prisons all over the world, creating a multifaceted insurrectionary anarchist front that, having informal coordination, the acceptance of multiformity and the lasting anarchist insurgency as tools, crystallises the prospect of a generalised anarchist offensive against the world of Power.
Our captive comrades Nikos Romanos and Panagiotis Argirou have put an idea on the table of anarchist dialectics. They have proposed an idea relating to a theme any of us could set at the edge of a month of coordinated actions – actions originating from the entire spectrum of anarchist practices, from public gestures to guerrilla actions.
It is a proposal that opted to set the seven years since the assassination of comrade Alexandros Grigoropoulos as a theme, so as to test an experimentation of an informal coordination of multiform anarchist action in practice.
Those who have the appropriate analytical tools understand that it is a proposal concerning any anarchist individuality or collectivity that’s not clinging to theoretical patterns or immersed in apathy and reformism.
This is also why the kneelers of petty politics and professional search of disagreements do not lose the opportunity to shoot the arrows of their slanderous criticism once again.
But, as much as the “official” anarchist circles of cafes and gossip want to engage in mudslinging and slander, they cannot hide their discontent with the fact that the apathy which permanently pervades them is revealed in the clearest way.
Now, leaving aside those skilled in political speculation, let us talk about the essence of this proposal.
We believe anarchy must pose a real threat to the State, and to do this, anarchy needs to stay away from vanguards, leaderships, press offices, away from the logics of political cleansing and expulsions.
Informal organising doesn’t need to arise from agreements in charters and proclaimed positions one has to embrace. In our anarchy, every individual and every group can contribute to a theme, a campaign, a strategy by synchronising and coordinating their action, irrespective of whether they share common political backgrounds.
To evolve spontaneity, which often prevails in the anarchist milieu, does not mean anarchy has to turn into a party; all that is needed for the feasibility of a formulation of strategies and actions chosen to be put in motion is a will to act and communicate with other comrades.
For we love the kind of anarchy that travels through the streets of fire, occupies space and time in the metropolises, and creates strongholds for the diffusion of anarchist theory and practice. The kind of anarchy that blows up the pillars of normality, robs our lost time, and throws the morals of this world into fire.
This kind of anarchy does not fit in the hypocritical respectabilities of this society, nor does it make concessions on its discourse or practices to be pleasing to the social majority.
Surely there’s so much to say, but what comes first is intensifying our attacks, thickening the chaotic paths of liberatory struggle.
We will be back soon
Guerrilla signals to the FAI cells who have actively supported Black December in Greece, Chile, Spain, and those currently preparing their attacks; to the comrades of the Anarchist Insurgent Movement (M.I.A.) from Brazil; to all arsonists and rioters who set fire to the symbols of domination.
Strength and solidarity to all anarchist comrades inside and outside the prisons who support Black December with texts, translations, posters, flyers, graffiti and banners that complete the mosaic of multiform anarchist action.
A hug full of affection to our brothers and sisters who are locked up in prisons in Spain, Chile, Switzerland, Italy, Mexico, Germany, the US, and elsewhere; to Mónica Caballero, Francisco Solar, Marco Camenisch, Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai, Juan Aliste, Freddy Fuentevilla and Marcelo Villarroel, Juan Flores, Guillermo Durán, Nataly Casanova, Enrique Guzmán, Thomas Meyer-Falk, Ignacio Muñoz, Tamara Sol, Michael Kimble, and all other captive comrades whom we have unwittingly forgotten to mention.

For the upsurge of anarchist insurgency

Within the context of the call for a Black December action campaign, we organised and carried out a deed of direct action.
We reached the outside of a cop’s house in the district of Zografou, who’s a serving special guard at the Golden Dawn offices, and we set fire to his personal vehicle.
Such actions can easily be diffused and reproduced by comrades, and also contribute to creating a climate of fear and insecurity among the cowardly servants of legal order.
We don’t wait until repression comes knocking on our door; we locate the houses of uniformed bastards within the metropolis, and pay them a visit so as to attack them by all means.
Strength and solidarity to all our comrades around the world who intensify the Black December campaign with their actions, making informal coordination of multiform anarchist action a reality.
We organise anarchist cells of direct action!
For the anarchist offensive against the world of Power!
For a Black December!
Solidarity with anarchist prisoners and all comrades wanted by authorities!
With our dead brothers and sisters present in every moment of attack against domination!

Barcelona, Spanish State: The attack continues in the face of the blows inflicted by power
After the recent police operations against anarchist milieus, so much has been written and said; statements and opinions mainly denounce or ‘condemn’ the repression inflicted by the authorities. After the latest repressive operation and the reactions that followed, we reckon we should give our point of view.
Starting from the fact that the ongoing repression is the State’s logical response to those who consider themselves (or the State considers) its enemies, we don’t understand certain communiqués full of victimization, where in practice (and with the most appropriate words, of course) they beg the State to stop unleashing its cops ‘indiscriminately’ against anarchists. And they say that repression is unjustifiable, and of course they use and abuse the word ‘frame-up’, and say we do nothing wrong, and that they attack us because we ‘think in a different way’… They try to give a picture of ‘normality’ and endeavour with all means to make this picture clean and socially acceptable. They do their best to take distance from violent words and actions; and as they become entrapped in the game of power and use the latter’s language, they make distinctions between ‘good’ anarchists and ‘bad’ ones, thus promoting criminalization from within their ranks.
At this point some of these ‘anarchists’ don’t feel ashamed at giving pitiful interviews to the media, and what is worse they pose as spokespersons of the ‘anarchist movement’ (and then of all social movements); these would-be politicians and leaders of the masses try their best to alienate anarchism from its subversive and conflictual character, and present anarchism as a simple movement of activists, deprived of any words or actions that clash against power and the established order.
Then there are those who just talk of how terrible repression is, how all comrades are under strict surveillance, and one can’t do anything; this kind of attitudes only spread collective panic and paranoia, and these are the attitudes of those who hide their inactivity behind the pretext of ever present repression, surveillance, ‘I’m being strictly watched’, etc. Anyone who is reluctant to take responsibility can be so according to their personal decisions; but to hide oneself behind uncontrolled and often groundless fear and to spread discouraging feelings wherever one goes, is dangerous and counter-productive. This doesn’t mean that there are the ‘brave’ ones and the ‘cowardly’ ones; it’s perfectly normal to fear police checks, prison, beatings, torture and murders committed by cops and jailers…
But spreading fear leads to panic and paranoia, and in turn this leads to discouraging speeches calling for inaction, maintaining that ‘to behave’ is better for both oneself and other comrades so as not to be the objects of police investigations.
To conclude this topic it must be said that even if the State has shown us nothing more than the tip of the iceberg, this is nothing compared to what could happen; in fact it’s sufficient to look at repression currently occurring in other areas of the world (and not even that far) or in the Spanish State itself a few decades ago. It should be clear that as we stand as anarchists we live with the risk and possibility to be hit by the machine of repression, also at the margins of our practices, because, as we’ve seen, there are times when the same repressive machine tries to stir fear among the enemies and strikes everyone rather than inflict targeted blows; as a consequence anyone of us can be a target.
However, in spite of the deployment of police operations, arrests and slanders that have been carried out (and in spite of what has to come yet), power knows that there will always be individuals who cannot be controlled or frightened, no matter what, our desire to destroy everything that oppresses us cannot be put off. We are glad to see how in spite of everything, they didn’t manage to stop the attack on the existent; every day there are some who still don’t give in to fear and social submission and go on constant attack. Multiform anarchist action keeps on spreading through many neighbourhoods, cities and countries in the form of publications and militant texts, posters, graffiti, banners, sabotage, fires and explosions, roads blocked with barricades, clashes, attacks on the buildings of power and disorders during demonstrations…
Although the Spanish state prefers not to make claims known so that actions are silenced, we know for certain what’s happening, with more or less frequency. The violence of the minority will continue, and we talk about violence openly and without troubles because we are convinced that power won’t fall by itself, nor will any Messiah come from heaven with a solution.
We don’t use words such as ‘self-defence’ or ‘counter-violence’; nor do we talk of anarchist violence only in a context of mass uprising when it’s more acceptable. We’ve found out that in spite of everything, insurrectional practices and attacks are still possible; police can’t be everywhere, they don’t spy on us all or control us all, some common sense, good planning and good will are more than enough to prove that the picture of a controlled and pre-arranged world is just an illusion; it’s up to us to break this illusion of tranquility.
For in the face of the blows of power and the misery of some ‘anarchists’ who only care to give an image of good innocent boys to society in order to be safe, we arm our desires and passions, and go on the attack. To the masses and their inactivity we offer our aggressiveness, we expect nothing and throw ourselves into constant anarchist revolt.
We are the rebels who have decided to carry on and run the risk, and dare live anarchy here and now.
Words without action are dead words to us, so we take the occasion of this communiqué to claim the following actions carried out in several neighbourhoods in Barcelona: the fire on vehicles of security companies, private ones as well as State-owned ones; attacks on bank branches through damages to windows and ATMs caused by hammers, stones, paint and fire; fire and destruction of urban structures.
With this communiqué we want to give our warm greetings to our prisoners, especially Monica and Francisco, who have been in pre-trial detention for over two years always with their heads held high; to comrades Nicola and Alfredo, the comrades of the CCF and the comrades imprisoned in Chile; and we want to remember our fallen ones and greet those who day by day continue to bet on constant conflict and anarchist insurrection, and make anarchy be once again a threat.
For a Black December everywhere!
For the black international of the anarchists of action!
For the spreading of chaos and Anarchy!
Nothing ends, the war continues…

An interview with a domestic insurgent
Chapter 12 of the book
RADICAL PEACE: People Refusing War
By William T. Hathaway
I first met the man we’ll call Trucker in 1970 at a rally against the Vietnam War. Our demo was going to start on the Berkeley campus and continue with a march down Telegraph Avenue. This was shortly after the National Guard and police had murdered six demonstrators at Kent State and Jackson State, so the mood was extremely tense. The Berkeley city government had denied us a permit to march and called in police reinforcements from Oakland. The Oakland cops had a reputation for brutality (based on their treatment of the black population), and we were expecting an ugly and possibly violent confrontation. Out of fear, many people decided not to march, but others of us argued that marching was now more important than ever. We needed to defy the government’s attempts to scare us into silence.
After speeches and music in front of Sproul Hall, we marched off the campus and were met by a wall of police sealing off Telegraph Avenue. Some of our hard-cores in front tried to break through the barrier but were clubbed down. Cops began firing what looked liked shotguns, and people started screaming and running in panic, but it turned out to be tear gas. (more…)

We claim responsibility for the incendiary attack against the Hellenic Post (ELTA) branch in the district of Pefki [in the early hours of November 23rd]. Anarchist prisoners, currently on trial in the terror-court of Koridallos prisons for a series of cases of anarchist violence, are also accused of committing robbery at this branch, that’s why we made sure it went up in flames, to send them a symbolic message of solidarity in view of the court decision.
The political rationale of this specific proposal – one we entirely support – stands for an open wager for reinitiating the anarchist insurgency, and attempting to create an informal platform that may become an invisible point of encounter and coordination between comrades in every trench of multiform anarchist struggle.
Not much else to say at the moment; now is the time for action, for constant and ceaseless multiform struggle.
Strength and complicity to the arsonists who set fire to social peace and sabotage the social normalcy in Brazil, Chile, Mexico, spreading Black December in every corner of the world.
Strength and complicity to those who will take to the streets seeking to vandalise representations of domination, throw stones at cops and burn symbols of Power.
Strength and complicity to all anarchist prisoners in every corner of the world.
Solidarity means attack!
For a Black December!
For the anarchist offensive against the world of Power!
