Saturday, October 29th, 2011

From culmine via this is our job:

To all like-minded arsonists and antagonists, the fourth communiqué from the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Mexico / Informal Anarchist Federation:

Neither exasperated, indignant, nor broken! Arsonists at war against every authority!

All our solidarity with comrade Gabriel Pombo da Silva!

We’re celebrating two months of direct attacks on capital and the State!

Against the system of domination!

For Total Liberation!

Yesterday [26/10/11] at 6:23 p.m., liberatory fire again burned where it hurts most, destroying merchandise. The Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (CCF) faction of the Mexican Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI-M), Veracruz section, gave life to liberatory fire at the Wal-Mart located at Universidad and Avenida Las Palmas in the heart of Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz. With this new attack, we avenge comrade Gabriel Pombo da Silva (held captive in Aachen prison) and demand his immediate release from the German and Spanish states. We also stand in solidarity with our comrade Tamara, with the Bombings Case compas in Chile, with the imprisoned Conspiracy of Cells of Fire compas in Greece, and with all our comrades abducted by the State in Mexico and the rest of the world.

New wave of anarchist direct action spreads (Russia)

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

08.10.2011 – anarchist guerilla squad has attacked the parking of the police cars in the town of Troitsk (Moscow region). Two cars were destroyed. Here’s a fragment from our communiqué:

“Police station of Troitsk-town… sturdy police building, which looks like stronghold, if you observe it from the Kaluzhskoe highway. Entrance is blocked by antitank hedgehog; high iron wall is ending by barbwire… But as it often happens with state institutions, solid and threatening façade hides rotten and useless content. Taking in the rear of armed police criminals, we have found a parking of patrol police cars without any security. These place is used by the brave Guardians of the Law just for drinking alcohol, as we have seen by our own eyes. As drunken pigs went home – we have attacked a parking [lot] and seriously injured by fire at least two police cars”.

Also this night at least 9 luxury cars were burnt in Moscow, but none has taken responsibility for these acts.

15.10.2011 – in Volsk-town (Saratov region) two cars, which belong to police officer and his wife, were set on fire and destroyed.

18.10.2011 – in Khimki-town (Moscow region) a police car was blown up. Police lie about a “technical disease”. None has taken a responsibility for this action.

22.10.2011 – in the town of Kamensk-na-Obi (Altai territory) a cottage of the depute and ex-mayor of the town, Valeriy Gorozhankin, was set on fire by unknown people.

All imprisoned people are released

Few days ago, all people arrested under suspicion of participating in road police blast were released from detention without any charges. Now it is clear that the police have shown their incompetence once again.

String of arsons following police repression against anarchists in Moscow (Russia)

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

Capital of Russia experienced 11 luxury car arsons as well as attack on police
department parking lot that saw 2 police cruisers torched.

While no concrete anarchist group took responsibility for recent string of arsons, police and media have already blamed them on anarchists, as has frequently (and sometimes unjustly) been the case in Russia.

Wide acceptance and mimicry of anarchist direct action tactics among the populace has pushed government towards repressions against the movement and even some “exemplary arrests”.

Aside from recent arrests of 4 suspected anarchists and an ABC activist, corporate media report two men (who have both served sentences in Russian prisons) captured during one of the arson attempts, although their part is dubious at best: Russian police have a long record of forcing former criminal prisoners to cooperate in covering-up of unsolved crimes, when people already convicted of a crime are “persuaded” to plead guilty in even more crimes.

IAF / Cell of Joy claim arson attack against prison vehicle in Nottingham (UK)

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

325 receives and transmits:

12 October 2011

A visit to Nottingham Prison last night [12/10] culminated in a fire being started underneath a prison vehicle. It had just gone nine when we arrived and after tagging some nearby walls with the messages of “Fire to the Prisons” and “Solidarity to those kidnapped”, we quickly and quietly stepped to the vehicles, lit our fires and took off quickly into the night.

This attack was not a request, or a demand that the prisons improve, or that the judicial system becomes more fair. We attacked because our comrades have been kidnapped, and we will show solidarity in anyway we can. Solidarity to all those captured during and after the riots, to the anti-fascists imprisoned because of the usual web of lies spun by the cops and their pals, and to all those who feel the urge to resist whenever the moment seems ripe. We did this in order to show solidarity with the actions of the IRF Bristol’s action at the Law courts a few nights ago, and to our Cambridge brothers and sisters acting with such fierce love and rage.

The prisons are where they hold us when they can not control us, they are the threat they hold over us, but what they can not understand is that the greater threat to us is for us not to act. For us to be stifled by the conditions and the conditioning of this society. When we act in away that unleashes our rage, when we act in away that brings us joy then we are able to unleash a glorious FUCK YOU! A FUCK YOU with blood and spittle, a FUCK YOU directed plainly at those who benefit most from this diseased social system.

Incendiary attack against car dealership by Fire Cell / FAI (UK)

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

GP Motors burned

325 receives and transmits:

10 October 2011

On the night of Monday 10 October we hit the bastard system again with more fiery anger. Two cars at the GP Motors dealership in Newnham, Cambridge, were arsoned – we hope the flames spread to the others, bringing a roaring inferno to the quiet leafy streets. No one was outside, the only sign of the middle class residents awake was the blue glow of TV screens from curtained windows! While the insurrectionary action cell had adrenaline pumping, joy in the heart, the moon shining bright above and the refreshing night air.

Shout out to the impatient and the bored shaking off passiveness and going on the attack against society!!

To the Greek uprizers and most especially the CCF, you fill us with strength, stay strong and stay unbowed!

And to the anarchists on the attack around the world, in Mexico, Chile, Spain, Indonesia, Russia, Argentina, Italy, and everywhere else – we are winning, winning against society’s cloying herd mentality and the meaningless lot set out for us in life.

As we know in our hearts, what we win is right here right now living with the head held high, the smile as we face a new day with dignity, the knowledge that whether or not the broader population upsurges against the imposed system and we have anything like the anarchist dream of a world of freedom and equality with no domination, we live without regrets as anarchists NOW.

Against the whole fucking disgusting cage of civilisation – wild destruction for total liberation!

Solidarity action for Greek anarchists 'Revolutionary Struggle' from Bristol (UK)

Thursday, October 6th, 2011

5 October 2011

“In Bristol last night (Wednesday October 5th) we broke into a police compound just south of the river. Under the cover of darkness we set fire to a marked police car. We didn’t hang around long enough to see whether or not it went up… we can only hope.

We did this for a few reasons. One, as a show of our anger and disgust for the police after hearing about the beating of many friends and comrades in Amsterdam during a demonstration last week.

Wednesday also marked the beginning of the trial against the ‘Revolutionary Struggle’ group in Greece. With this solidarity action we send you heart felt greetings, you are an inspiration to many, stay strong and proud.

It should go without saying that this was done as much for these reasons as for our own enjoyment. With NO feelings of obligation we enjoyed every moment from the organisation to the orchestration. And of course this is not a glorification of foreign struggles, we have a laundry list of personal/regional reasons to resist, from raids and evictions to locally imprisoned rebels.

This action was done in the spirit of what has become known as the LEGEND OF THE EVENING POST SMASHER*.”

Anon

[*Reference to a window smashing action against offices of a right-wing newspaper in Bristol, for which the cops seek a suspect from reported DNA evidence, which resulted in a local squat being raided. The cops didn’t find the man they were looking for, but made a political investigation, and seized computers, phones, papers. The newspaper, which naturally had their journalists present at the raid, tried to play a key part in the local repressive operations of the police, exactly like every other newspaper in the country. They all justified the police murder of Mark Duggan and excused the daily brutality and disgusting behaviour of the police, printing suspects photographs and spreading hatred and vengeance etc. The newspaper, known as the ‘Evening Post’ is a very typical daily newspaper owned by Northcliffe Media (formerly Northcliffe Newspapers Group), it is a large regional newspaper publisher in the UK and Central and Eastern Europe, owned by the Daily Mail and General Trust. In UK, it operates from over 30 publishing centres, and also has 18 daily titles.]

CCF-FAI communique for four arsons (Mexico)

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

From Liberación Total:

To all arsonists and like-minded antagonists, the third communiqué from the CCF-FAI of Mexico:

Like the joint communiqué by 11 Mexican insurrectionary anarchist and eco-anarchist groups says: “We are launching a frontal attack on the system of domination, causing maximum damage with minimum risk.”

We have the capacity to rebel against a criminal, terrorist, unjust system, even until the final consequences!

On September 15, while BLACK SEPTEMBER was developing in Mexico, a new path of informal struggle against domination was being laid out: the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (CCF) faction of the Informal Anarchist Federation of Mexico (FAI-M). Our first arson was carried out on September 27 by the Mexico City cells, who unleashed liberatory fire at the warehouse on Avenida Pacífico between Miguel Ángel de Quevedo and Eje 10 Sur in the Coyoacán area of Mexico City. War on the existent order had begun. The next day, we torched the Airport Staff training school of the National College of Professional Technical Education (CONALEP), located in the Third Ward of Arenal in the Venustiano Carranza area of Mexico City. On September 30, in an action coordinated between the Mexico City cells and the Jalisco cells, the CCF of Mexico simultaneously attacked capital in Mexico City and Jalisco, hitting where it hurts most: merchandise. Liberatory fire was born at the Wal-Mart on Calle Luis Donaldo Colosio in the Buenavista suburb of Cuauhtémoc, Mexico City and at the Pabellón shopping mall on Avenida Patria in Guadalajara, Jalisco.

Recent statements by Mexico City chief prosecutor Miguel Ángel Mancera continue to downplay the anarchist actions taking place in the capital. This is the same old strategy used by the PRD and Marcelo Ebrad to censor our struggle, as the Mexico City cells claimed responsibility for their attack in a communiqué released on the same day as the action. The Jalisco chief prosecutor’s office is also adding to the silence and whitewashing that conceals our struggle, as the Jalisco cells publicized their attack that same night as well.

With our acts of propaganda during the events of this BLACK SEPTEMBER, we take retribution for comrade Tortuga, comrade Tamara, and our comrade prisoners in Mexico and the rest of the world.

The struggle has begun. Let’s make sure it spreads everywhere.

Take a single comrade prisoner during tomorrow’s march and we will make the cities burn!

We are all accomplices of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire!
Long live the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire!
Long live the Informal Anarchist Federation of Mexico!
Long live the fighting insurrectionist and eco-anarchist groups!
Long live liberatory fire and avenging gunpowder!
Be strong, captive comrades in the Bombings Case!
Be strong, imprisoned comrades from the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire!
Be strong, comrades from Epanastatikos Agonas [Revolutionary Struggle]!
Be strong, comrade Tortuga!
Be strong, comrade Tamara!
Be strong, comrade Gabriel!
Against the technological system of domination!
For the demolition of prisons!
For the destruction of everything that dominates us!
For Total Liberation!
For international anarchist coordination!
For Anarchy!

4 luxury cars burned by Friends of the Earth / FAI (Argentina)

Saturday, October 1st, 2011

from Culmine, September 30th

“We believe that everything we were taught since childhood has been to make us unthinking beings, obedient and fearful citizens. From school to the family, which also passed by her, the powerful tell us what they want to say about the patriots, the heroes, and the “good” people, instead of speaking of the forgotten “Indians”, as Columbus called them, who were eliminated here by Sarmiento with words and the Rock with the sword.

Today these forgotten people live in miserable slums and walk through life salvaging what they can to survive, despite all the overbearing behaviors that society teaches them. Such is the responsibility of the capitalist system.

Hardly anyone knows how to live without technology and every day they sell more unnecessary products. But whether people are offered them or demand them, they are only seduced by the vices of power and ambition, and with small or large investments they remain within the system and fit into society.

They still believe in religion and politics, and wait for a new leader to bring order to the country, some other fascist to remind them of Peron. Meanwhile, they’re thrilled to buy fast cars, and if they can’t afford that, they’re content that “their team” won the soccer game, so they’ll have something to talk about during their dreadful routine of work which they believe it is the only thing that makes them feel proud and useful. Otherwise they wouldn’t be able to eat, would go crazy from boredom, they could become prisoners for their rebellion or even be killed. Those are the options available to people who are aware of the harsh reality that we live. And despite the different ways of understanding the world that exist, we’re all the same, but some choose to simply drive cars, others decided to set them on fire in:

Marcos Paz and Pedro Lozano, Donato Alvarez and Tres Arroyos, Allende and Arregui, Emilio Lamarca and Nogoya.

Whether by day or night, at any moment we can attack that which oppresses us and keeps us from being free. Previously, in our last statement we forgot to mention that there were eight cars and luxury SUVs burned, on this occasion we claim only four.

Was it not luxury cars that were burned? If so, why not bring to light in the mass media?

This was for comrade Jose Lopez, imprisoned and charged with arson/bomb attacks against the established order in Madrid.”

Anarchist direct actions from Black Bloc (Russia, Ukraine)

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

Dear Comrades! Since our latest report in English had been published, there have been some occasions of social war moved by anarchists and “ordinary people”.

29.08.2011 – In St. Petersburg R.A.T.S. (Red and Anarchist Terror Section) burned road roller and bulldozer on the construction site of business-center of Gazprom – the most horrible Russian state-capitalist monster, trading oil and gas.

The same day in Moscow DIY-bomb was thrown into the police station of one of the Moscow outskirt municipality – Eastern Degunino. Two police cars, wall and windows of a building was damaged by explosion. This was the second anonymous bomb-attack on Moscow police in last days of August (the first one two days before). No group has claimed responsibility.

31.08.2011 – In Petersburg-city R.A.T.S. strikes again – police car burned and communiqué was spread: “everyone knows what hatred to police means – nowadays our country is separated on two unequal groups – those who governs and those who has to obey due to the fear of repressions (…) our action is a gift to the inauguration of a new police governor of St. Petersburg – Poltavchenko.”

03.09.2011 – Nearby city of Samara, placed in Volga-river, in the night anonymous pirate group attacked from the boat expensive yachts by Molotov cocktails.

09.09.2011 – In Moscow region administration house of Povarovo village was attacked by Molotov cocktails. No group has claimed responsibility.

12.09.2011 – In Altai territory arson of Bailiff Center took place. Serious damage of building and documentation.

13.09.2011 – In Ulianovsk anonymous fire attack took place on the office of the deputy Ruslan Seukov, member of a ruling party United Russia.

Attack against 'Lexus' by Fire Cell / FAI (UK)

Monday, September 26th, 2011

325 receives and transmits:

25 September 2011

“This is a claim for setting alight an SUV at the Lexus car showroom on Coldhams Lane, Cambridge, early in the morning of 25/09/11. This is done pushed not just by hatred of this society but inflamed with solidarity for comrades Luciano in Chile and Tamara in Spain, as well as those anarchist fighters coming up for trial in Greece, the Antifa prisoners here in the UK and also those coming up for trial in the same case. Luciano ‘Tortuga’ was wounded in an attempted bomb attack on a bank in May, and is now held hostage by the Chilean state, up on trial three days ago. Tamara Hernandez was recently sentenced in Spain to 8 years for sending a letter bomb in October 2009 to the scumbag in charge of the prisons in Spain. The spread of the informal federation of the insurrectionary attack and stubborn solidarity continues in the hearts and minds of rebels around the globe. Repression will lead to escalation. Counter-insurgency will just feed the insurgency, polarise the population, making clear the social war. Chaos is inevitable!! And anarchy is always possible!”

Incendiary attack on two vans of the energy multinational GDF Suez in Madrid (Spain)

Saturday, August 13th, 2011

10 August 2011

from liberacion total, translated by war on society:

Communique:

Tonight two vans belonging to the energy multinational “GDF SUEZ” were set on fire in the neighborhood of San Juan Bautista.

The techno-industrial system has been imposed on our lives in a brutal way, to colonize our bodies and minds, life has been totally artificialized. New developments, such as nanotechnology, biotechnology, robotics… stand as new forms of domination in which the State spends billions, knowing that this is to secure its perpetuity. They sell us all these projects as the best in the best of all possible worlds, but the only thing that they secure is the continuation of the existing order; the only thing they secure is the murder of the earth, the total dependency on technology, a world where there is no space for autonomy, for freedom; and the murder of millions of people so that here in the first world we can enjoy a “peaceful” life where alienation now rises to aberrant levels.

For all this to function it is necessary to murder the earth by means of extracting so-called “resources” for the production of energy. For this we attacked the company “GDF SUEZ,” and the attacks will continue against all that which enslaves us; also for our sisters in England who, having understood that the misery in your lives is caused by the world of commodities, have fiercely launched yourselves to destroy them — from here, strength in your struggle, and may the insurrection that these days ravages England spread everywhere.

FREEDOM FOR BILLY, SILVIA, COSTA AND MARCO!

FREEDOM FOR THE ANTI-AUTHORITARIAN PRISONERS INCARCERATED BY THE GREEK STATE!

Statement from Revolutionary Organisation – Informal Anarchist Federation, Indonesia Section (Indonesia)

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

325 receives and transmits:

Bandung, Indonesia – Cells of International Conspiracy for Revenge, a few days ago, have claimed responsibility by spreading leaflets surrounding the ATM BNI firebombings. The leaflet is almost the same tone as in Makassar and Manado:

PT Indomining (Bima) has been brutally repressing the local population, Jogja Magasa International wants to evict 30,000 farmers in Kulon Progo. Farmers in Takalar are facing the threat of land-grabbing. These actions are carried out in a brutal way, including shootings, terror, sexual harassment as well as the various forms of repression that we never hear about in the mainstream media.

That’s not surprising because these capitalist-bureaucratic companies do not care about anything except making their wallet thicker!”

“Our attacking of an ATM (bank) is an important target, because banks are always involved in financing natural resources and the repression of the people in the name of capital! We have no intention of injuring anyone, the destruction of property is not violence! No mercy for the forces of repression! No mercy for the State and Capitalism.”

May the Social War escalate and we forgot to mentioned comrades in Greece, Italy, or anywhere else but you all know our hearts are with you.

Got Ist Tot – Free Association of Individualist-Communists.

Salute to: Revolutionary Organisation – Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. The Revolutionary Struggle. The Chilean insurrectionists. Giannis Dimitrakis and Polykarpos Georgiades, our hearts are with you!

Long Live the Rebellion and stay free. And with this statement we claim to join the RO-FAI, Indonesian Section.

‘The Sun Still Rises’ by Conspiracy of Cells of Fire : Imprisoned Members Cell (Greece)

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

Download: Click for PDF Zine from Dark Matter Publications.

From culmine via this is our job:

May 30 saw the publication of ‘The Sun Still Rises’, a pamphlet containing a chronology of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire attacks and the following new text by the group:

The Sun Still Rises

Knowledge chooses its project, each project is new and chooses its moments, each moment is new, but simultaneously emerges from the memory of all the moments that existed before


—The Interior of the Absolute

1. The Beginning

The Conspiracy of Cells of Fire Revolutionary Organization didn’t begin its activity from out of nowhere. It wasn’t as if a straight line had cut through space and time. It was a future crying out from the past. The Conspiracy comprised a collective synthesis, connecting the backgrounds and viewpoints of all who participated in it and drawing valuable conclusions from past experiences of subversive projects and attacks we took part in.

It represented our desire to take a step further, not to climb some ladder of informal hierarchy that fetishizes violence and its methods, but to simply advance, move forward, and explore new perspectives, making the shift from a “bunch of friends” to an organization, from the sporadic to the consistent, from the spontaneous to the strategic.

Arson of Church in Solidarity with Marie Mason, Eric McDavid & Imprisoned Comrades of the Social War (Peru)

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

From vivalaanarquia, translated by war on society:

11 June 2011

This past 11th of June a fire was started on the side of a church which was under construction; we climbed the wall with mats in order to reach the entire wooden frame, instead of climbing the wall and going inside, we proceeded to leave plastic bottles filled with gasoline on which a sticker was placed, (alluding to the comrade fallen in combat, Mauricio Morales); and an additional amount [of gasoline] was splashed across the fence. Moments before climbing the walls again, we set fire and showered leaflets in solidarity to the eco-anarchist comrades Marie Mason and Eric McDavid; it was the same place where days before we painted slogans, while we were making an inspection of the area.

By way of this action we express solidarity with those who, like many other prisoners of the social war in the world, do not give up in this struggle; through this form we also show that our solidarity continues and will continue to be a weapon against the whole system of domination, and that those on the inside are not alone.

We do not surrender, we continue onward, we know that with intentions we do not change anything, but only with actions. Seek to live anarchy!

For fear to not destroy solidarity… for solidarity to destroy confinement!

Against the prisons of capital!

Freedom to the accused of the “Bombs Case”!

MARIE MASON AND ERIC MCDAVID TO THE STREET!


Circle of Iconoclastic Action / Informal Anarchist Federation


text of the leaflet:

INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY WITH IMPRISONED ECO-ANARCHIST COMRADES

Eric McDavid was arrested in January 2006 after being betrayed by “Anna,” a paid government informant, and was charged with a single count of conspiracy. Eric (who never carried out any action; we can say he was committed for a “thought crime”), refusing to cooperate with the State, was brought to trial, where he was sentenced to almost 20 years in prison.

Marie Mason was arrested in March 2008 after her partner turned FBI informant. Faced with life-long imprisonment if she went to trial, Marie accepted a plea deal in September 2008, admitting her involvement in an arson of an office involved in genetic engineering. In February of the following year she was sentenced to almost 22 years.

We express solidarity this June 11th with the eco-anarchist comrades who like many of the other prisoners of the social war in the world do not give up in this struggle.

For fear to not destroy solidarity… for solidarity to destroy confinement!

Against the prisons of capital!

MARIE MASON AND ERIC MCDAVID TO THE STREET!

TO FLEE FROM ALL PHYSICAL AND MENTAL PRISONS!!!
