While we lit a cold and dark night with a pile of iron, the rising flames could be seen far from the site and aside from the pleasure that has given us, the action was taken in the service of eco-vandalism lobby which has a name that’s never been heard.
On Thursday, February 20th, in Poyraz rural regions of Anatolian part of Istanbul, we attacked an excavator which is left to sleep on the verge of excavating the nature and we spray painted several locations around the site with the signs of ‘ELF-FAI/IRF’. While this nature killer became unusable with a simple, time-set, handmade incendiary device, the message we wanted to give was clear: “If you build it, we will burn and destroy it!”.
Our major motivations for this action are;
We wanted to emphasize that the definitive attack against the dictatorship which legitimizes itself by conducting ecocide projects such as ‘3. Bosphorus Bridge’ and ‘Canal Istanbul’, has to be manifested no more relying on stereotypes liberal-pacifist “consciousness raising campaigns” and “judicial process”. These kind of organizations are just trying to delay what is unavoidable and to hinder the reasonable eco-defense ground against current ecological destruction. Trying to get a positive decision from the State’s justice system which is actually the contractor of ecocides, they help weakening the anger by channeling it to polls or social media shares. (more…)

On the night of February 11-February 12, 2014, a vehicle of SPIE burst into flames, on Carducci street (ΧΙΧe).
SPIE is involved in the nuclear industry, in the optical fiber digital network and in the “1,000 cameras” plan, in the city of Paris. For these reasons, it must be attacked everywhere, all the time.
Snitch hunting has begun!
We send a greeting of love and struggle to the comrades whose trial started on February 3, in Koridallos women’s prisons. For anarchy!

11-02-2014, Royal Marine Reserve base in Clifton, Bristol.
Military propaganda portrays the armed forces as protectors of ‘the people’. Since the first civilisations this has been used to justify conquest and occupation of territory for the ruling classes, sacrificing their lackeys to build up empires big or small.
We’re expected to believe (or at least act as if we believe) that what’s in the politicians, the generals and the economists interests is really in our interests.
But we’re not fooled. This morning smoke rose above Clifton from the two vans and one large white personnel transporter we’d torched with low-tech firestarters after breaching the compound of the Royal Marine Reserve’s Bristol detachment, who’ve been deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan. It’s disgusting how these part-time commandos think they can operate here with immunity while elsewhere they and their colleagues slaughter, rape and terrorize. Alexander Blackman – the British Marine executioner exposed recently for his actions in Afghanistan – is only one example of their systematic wider brutality, and not the pitied aberration he’s painted as. Besides, wherever the military are they’re a symbol of the State domination they enforce. Perhaps to anyone with a view over this compound that symbol is now a little shaken. For the gears of the warmachine these guerrilla strikes behind the lines remain a constant threat. (more…)

During the night of new 2014 year we joined the celebrations of burning symbols of oppression. A quarry excavator was torched in one of the active quarries of Krasnoselsk district in Belarus. 10 liters of gasoline and significant number of rags was used for the act as the thing was huge, the size of country cottage. Security guards invited a streetwalker for the night (this happened in front of our surprised eyes). So in 30 minutes after they started socializing we lighted up the night of passion and happiness with flames of burning vehicle.
Merry crisis and a happy new fear!

During the night of December 31 – January 1 we torched 2 vehicles used in development project in Southern Moscow. Security didn’t expect us to show up as they were busy drinking themselves into oblivion at the guardhouse. So we used 2 jelly cans of gasoline and some rags to destroy unguarded machinery. No harm came from our actions (only harm being made was that to the developer’s purse).
We dedicate this action to anarchists from Belarus, those who stay imprisoned. Guys, we remember you, we miss you and wait for you to become free again. We ask for ABC Belarus to help us in spreading this information and letting our imprisoned comrades know of our words and deed. We hope the news will help to lighten up the mood and keep you warm and smiling in the grey prison reality.
As for our ecodefence activism, we are not planning to make a U-turn. Unlike Mrs. Chirikova [self-proclaimed leader of mass protests during Khimki forest struggle – trans.] we are not looking for a comfortable chair in local administration. So we can afford to do what needs be done. We don’t accept moanings like: “Violence is bad, we shouldn’t be torching vehicles, we should get more signatures under petition, so as to be heard by federal government.” This reminds us of the fears of a person who’s afraid to loose the goodwill of powers-that-be. If we allow somebody to commit violence against ourselves, it means we’re raising the white flag. It is time to question the rationale behind continuous withdrawal under the blows of authorities. It is time to stop hiding your inability to act behind phrases like: “we shouldn’t act, this is violent tactics” or “this is too macho-ist” or “this is illegal”. If you want to ask for permission to protest, you must understand that you’re in fact selling yourselves. Only uncontrollable forms of resistance can hope to remain free. Any protest coordinated from under liberal umbrella organization is doomed to a failure. Gather your strengths, stay free and be wild, god damn it!

Bath: Burning cars and a 4×4 in flames – A cell of the FAI/ELF strikes back after police are cleared of the murder of Mark Duggan (UK)
Friday, January 10th, 2014
Action report censored by the pacifist-judiciary of Indymedia UK:
8th of January – incendiary device on delay left at Kia car showroom, Lower Bristol Road, Bath. Damage to the building facade. A brand new 4-x-4 and three cars also consumed by the flames. A direct attack on exploitative manufacturing industries who profit from choking our world, who also make status symbols for our class enemies. This section of the Earth Liberation Front and Informal Anarchist Federation has them in our sights.
With the cops cleared of the execution of Mark Duggan that started the riots of 2011, as good a time as ever to re-ignite the streets.
Unfortunately for the enemy, the 32 year old man arrested for the action has no relation to our group.
Active solidarity with:
– the stirrings of new struggle against road building programs in the UK (traces of which we saw in Combe Haven), specifically with the ones who won’t take the path of liberals and pacifists next time.
– Swiss anarchist Marco Camenish (who is on hunger strike and refusing work since the 30th of December) and also informal anarchist prisoners Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai in Italy.
– Henry Zegarrundo (who we recognise as a kindred spirit through his letters) targeted by the Bolivian prosecutors, those on the run, and the anarchist and indigenous peoples still fighting the highway development.
Bristol – Toluca – Jakarta – Moscow – Buenos Aires – Melbourne – keep the fires burning

Action report censored by the pacifist-judiciary of Indymedia UK:
We think that anyone serious about confronting domination as it stands today will sooner or later come to the questions of science and technology. It’s clear how both have an increasingly vital role to the ruling order by creating, managing and spreading control within society and over the rest of an earth we’re falsely separated from. By investigating the development of these powers in the region and who makes it possible, we came to Vinci.
In the U.K, the French multinational energy and construction giant Vinci carry out specialist construction services for the police, Ministry of Defence and prisons, earthworks for motorways, railways and quarrying, power stations, offshore rigs and nuclear new-builds, as well as shopping centres and the like. Worldwide this corporation and its subsidiaries are active in many fields: dam building, private security, airports, uranium mines; these scum have no problem with inflicting carnage on the earth and us as part of it, raising an industrial cage around us both figuratively and literally, and feeding off the labour of their workforce while the bosses line their pockets and move on to the next contract.

Santiago: Phoenix Project #8 – Action with incendiary/explosive device against a Board of Elections office and in solidarity with Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar (Chile)

Phoenix Project, Act 8: Action with incendiary/explosive device against a Board of Elections office and in solidarity with Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar. (Chile)
We are not spectators, but convinced enemies of all forms of domination.
Today, wielding the weapons of life and the ideas of rebellion, we wanted to give away a bit of anarchic momentum.
Today, we decided to attack the 98th Board of Elections office in La Reina commune [in Santiago] with an incendiary/explosive device, because we are convinced that the current state of affairs is sustained not only by those who administer domination, but also in the servile attitude of those who tacitly endorse it.

Phoenix project #7: ELF/FAI burn down sawmill at hunting resort in Bryansk – 'Some thoughts on recent issues with FAI/IRF' (Russia)
Saturday, October 5th, 2013
Received via encrypted mailing oak:
On October the 2nd of 2013, 2 incendiaries 1.5l of gasoline each were placed at the sawmill situated on the land of a hunting resort under Bryansk (western Russia). Tongues of flames rose up to lick the rags left by unfortunate woodcutters right on the device. A nearby hill offered awesome spot to enjoy the night scene: thick smoke was soon gathering under the roof and coiling around the compound in a mist-like fashion.
We suggest this action to count as our input in PHOENIX project (#7), a project for the revival of direct action acts and anarchist resistance after repressions of 2010-2012. We wholeheartedly support our mates from Moscow cells of CCF and ELF when they state the necessity to resume and widen our attacks on state and capital.
Some thoughts about the recent critique by anonymous comrades from Argentina. Without any second thoughts of being self-referential or posting useless bravado:
Interior debates are not always worth it to publish them in English on international sites. Besides we thought that a series of attacks on similar targets still sparks debates in the anarchist community at least on the local level (we can name anti-police campaign of 2008-2011, Khimki and Butovsky forests, recent protests against mining project in Voronezh). Sometimes things go beyond debates.
We also considered it agreed upon that its very hard to coordinate timed hits at the similar structures on the international level (like fur farms, woodcutter industry, cops, prisons, military objects, industry, banks, gas and oil etc.) as this takes more time and we are communicating on a more or less public level here. So our enemies can get the better of us. It is debatable whether we should risk our freedom during next action for a chance to see a communique about similar action taking place 6 months later somewhere else. Besides, one cannot say we do not coordinate to some extent: notice the series of attacks at power supply lines and electricity industry objects in Belarus, Canada and Indonesia, actions taken against banking institutions in the UK, Russia, Germany, Italy, Greece, numerous coordinated acts of hunger strikes performed by our imprisoned comrades throughout the planet.
For our collective the whole FAI-IRF thing is more important because of the feeling of being part to some wider community. In the past that was the “social anarchist” organizations’ exclusive domain. Now anarchists of other inclinations can feel camaraderie and support across the globe. Just several years ago in our country if you wanted to get in touch with anarchists you’d have to suffer through established mainstream anarchists organizations. And if some shit happened they were the first to mumble about police provocateurs and stuff. Now people who feel the same, who are edging towards rebellion and actions as no less valid than anarchist theory, can link up outside the pacifist and reformist anarchist framework. And when we read about hundreds of cars burning in one part of the world, banks going in flames in another and construction vehicles sabotaged somewhere else – so much the better. A short trip in memory: recall the heated discussions over the FAI acronym just a little while ago (or early discussions over the support/denouncement of CCF). We believe it is the achievement every group from FAI-IRF that things have changed.
We understand that your concern is lack of streamlined coordination in our attacks, but we have another issue to discuss as well: new groups to be formed, spreading of information, countermeasures against repressions. If one wants to coordinate her attacks more thoroughly, she needs only to read other people’s communiques better. But to fight the still ongoing repression aimed at direct action groups world wide – this is the task we believe should be addressed asap.

Polisi adalah musuh. Ini adalah pernyataan final kami yang tidak akan lagi bisa ditawar. Polisi terlahir tidak untuk menjadi sahabat, secara individual maupun institusi, dan tidak bisa tidak dimasukkan dalam daftar musuh yang mesti mendapatkan pukulan paling keras. Sebagai institusi dan individu, polisi adalah mereka yang bertugas untuk melindungi peradaban dan eksploitasi yang dilakukannya terhadap bumi. Polisi -seperti juga instrumen penindas yang lain- bertugas mengamankan uang dan kepentingan investasi demi berlangsungnya hidup antroposentrisme seperti hari. Polisi tidak hanya sekedar representasi bagi kami. Sebaliknya, polisi adalah salah satu dari ribuan wajah dari kebiadaban hidup hari ini. Polisi layak diserang, sekeras mungkin.
Atas jasa-jasa polisi yang dengan setia menjadi anjing penjaga bagi domestikasi hidup, mereka dibekali dengan peralatan tempur yang digunakan untuk memerangi keinginan merdeka dan cita-cita kehidupan liar di mana aturan judisial dan perangkat hukum absen total. Mereka dilengkapi dengan senjata, perisai dan rompi anti peluru. Perangkat-perangkat diproduksi agar babi-babi ini dapat dengan percaya diri dalam menghadapi perang yang dialamatkan kepada tuan-tuan mereka.
Tapi mereka salah besar. Polisi-polisi babi itu salah besar jika menyangka bahwa kami tidak cukup berani untuk mengirimkan serangan kami tepat di bagian-bagian penting mereka. Seperti saat ini, ketika kami menempatkan dua buah jerigen berisi 5 liter bensin dan 5 liter solar dilengkapi dengan pemicu otomatis. Pemicu yang telah kami siapkan agar kami dapat menjauh dari lokasi serangan dan membuat mereka tidak akan bisa menangkap satupun dari kami. Waktu yang lebih dari cukup untuk kami membiarkan alam melindungi kami dengan menghapus seluruh jejak-jejak kaki kami.
Kami mencoba sebuah langkah baru untuk meradikalkan serangan kami dan memperluas efek kerusakan yang ditimbulkan dari setiap pukulan yang kami arahkan kepada musuh. Perangkat pembakar yang kami kirimkan ke sebuah pabrik saat dini hari Senin, 23 September, yang terletak di Jalan Suryani Terusan, Kelurahan Babakan, Kecamatan Babakan Ciparay, Bandung, Jawa Barat.
Alasannya? Pabrik ini memproduksi rompi anti peluru bagi polisi dan tentara. Pabrik ini adalah salah satu sumber produksi peralatan perang bagi babi-babi ini. Rompi anti peluru untuk melindungi polisi dan tentara ketika mereka menembaki musuh, menembaki kami dan saudara-saudara kami.
Itu mengapa, membakar hangus pabrik ini adalah tujuan aksi ini.
Bersama aksi ini, kami mengirimkan salut hormat kami kepada para kombatan di belahan dunia lain dan tempat lain yang tanpa ragu melakukan serangan semaksimal mungkin. Salut kepada aksi bersama yang dilakukan oleh CCF Rusia dan ELF Rusia. Juga serangan tanpa henti dari kombatan-kombatan Amigo de la Tierra – FAI di Argentina. Juga serangan beruntun dari para pemberani di CCF dan ICR dalam Projek Phoenix.
Aksi ini juga adalah salam dan pelukan hangat kami kepada individu-individu pemberani yang diculik oleh negara namun terus melancarkan perang dalam keterbatasan geraknya. Kepada Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Marco Camenisch, Hans Niemeyer, Walter Bond, para kombatan dari Sel Dalam Penjara CCF serta para tahanan di Yunani, Italia dan Chile yang tidak bisa kami sebutkan satu persatu namun selalu berada di dalam hati kami.
Kehidupan Liar, Sekarang!

The police are the enemy . This is our final statement that is not negotiable. Police are not born to be friends, as individuals and as an institution, and can not be excluded from the list of enemies that must be addressed by for our attacks. As an institution and as individuals, the police goal is to protect civilization and the exploitation it is doing to the earth.
The objective of the police -as well as the other repressive instruments- is to secure the money and investment interests for the sake of the anthropocentric way of life as it is today. The police are not for representing our interests. Instead, the police are one of the thousands of faces of outrage alive today. Police must be attacked, as hard as possible.
For their loyal services as guard dogs for the domestication of life, they are equipped with combat equipment that is used against free will and the aspirations of wildlife where the judiciary and the rule of law are totally absent. They are equipped with weapons, armor and bulletproof vests. The devices are manufactured so that the pigs can act with confidence in the face of the war that is addressed to their masters.
But they were wrong. The pigs have a totally wrong idea if they think that we are not brave enough to send our attack right to their essential sectors. As of this moment, when we put two jerry cans containing 5 liters of petrol and 5 liters of diesel equipped with an automatic trigger. Triggers that we have prepared so that we can move away from the scene of the attack and make them not be able to catch any of us. Which is more than enough time for us to let nature protects us by removing all traces of our feets.
We tried a new step to radicalize our attacks and extend the effects of the damage from any blows that we direct to the enemy. Incendiary devices placed at a factory during the early hours on Monday, September 23, located on Canal Street Suryani, Babakan Village, District Babakan Ciparay, Bandung, West Java.
The reason? This factory manufactures bulletproof vests for cops and army. This plant is one of the sources for the production of war equipment for these pigs. Bullet-proof vests to protect police and soldiers when they open fire on the enemy, open fire on us and on our brothers. That’s why, this place is burning, charred, and this is the purpose of this action.
Together with these actions, we send our respectful salute to the combatants in other parts of the world and other places who without hesitation attack as much as possible. Salute to the joint actions undertaken by CCF Russia and the Russian ELF. Also the relentless attack from combatants Amigo de la Tierra – FAI in Argentina. Also the multiple attacks by the brave ones of CCF and ICR in Project Phoenix.
This action also is our warm greetings and hugs to the brave individuals who were abducted by the state but continue to wage war whilst their physical movements are limited. To Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Marco Camenisch, Hans Niemeyer, Walter Bond, the combatants of CCF Imprisoned Members Cell and the prisoners in Greece, Italy and Chile that we can not mention one by one, but they are always in our hearts.
Bring down the civilization
Wild Life, now!

Darwin: Rowdy anti-election action as anarchists burn campaign posters and also activists banner (Australia)
Monday, September 23rd, 2013
On Friday the 6th of September as the farce of Australia’s federal election came to a close we decided to breathe some more fire into the mix.
50 + political posters with the names, faces and political parties who claim to want to “represent” us were collected throughout the night and as we descended on a footbridge across Trower Rd we noticed some do-gooder activists had already visited. (more…)

A statement from Bristol Anarchist Black Cross on the recent revelation by The Post and Avon & Somerset Police that they plan on “cracking down” on anarchist, rioters and extremists
When the flames were lit that engulfed the Police Firearms Training Centre in Portishead, near Bristol it shocked the country. Never before in living memory had such a blazen act of insurrection taken place on British soil and aimed at such a high-profile target. The mass media went hysterical with talk of a “anarchist terror network”. The communique, originally published on Bristol Indymedia, was quoted around the world and quickly dubious links were made between the arson at Portishead and other attacks across the UK. (more…)

Two Moscow cells of ecoanarchists carried out a coordinated attack on highway construction site in eastern Moscow that ended in torching of two bulldozers. The action took place on 08/09/2013. First we came upon some construction workers who were busy burning fires at their wheeled houses near the forest. So initially we were tempted to fuck them up and torch their houses with tools and personal belongings. But turned out that our mutual desire to clean karma was stronger than inclination to spoil it, so we didn’t touch the slaves. We torched their vehicles.
As usual, we acted with impudence: we did our black deeds right in front of workers and passer-by car drivers. So we apologized to the guy who almost got into a traffic accident because flaming dozer hypnotized him so much.
We take this opportunity to remind you that roadworks at the site continue. Moscow region is teeming with projects like this one, when trees are uprooted and earth is covered in bitumen. The more roads there are – the less we got left to live. This is not okay with us. Good luck to those who are brave. Death to those who are not.

Last night (Sept 2nd 2013) for the first time in living memory but definitely not the last, the flames of anarchist insurrection roared high above the toxic skies of Melbourne putting a swift end to years of local ‘activist’ and ‘social anarchist’ inactivity in this city.
At approximately 7:30PM we gained entrance to Gran Turismo Autos, a luxury car dealership on Spencer St in inner-city West Melbourne via a poorly secured rear window and placed an improvised incendiary device with timer already set under a desk in an office area adjacent to the showroom then promptly fled the building via the same window through which we gained entry.

Censored by the reactionary civil servants who administer Bristol IMC:
The full weight of our entrapment in within this society presses down on us unbearably. Un-named grief, frustration, loneliness and insecurity are the stories of our lives for the most part, stretching back generations. Like money talks loudest and silences all other principles, like concrete and tarmac isolate us from the rest of the planet as it sickens, and like the dominant culture casts humans as robots to work-consume-reproduce-obey… we are physically and emotionally smothered every day by a cheapened, artificial existence keeping us far from our dreams outside the mould.
Awakening anger pierces the fog of confusion from our alienated condition, seeking out worthy targets for the rage. Any notion of truce with the ruling institutions aiming at reform only conforms to the disarmed roles they would coerce us into. Immediate insurrection seems vital. We raise our masks and step out into the night to speak through a language as old as Domination: sabotage and conspiracy. (more…)
