Athens, Greece: Claim for incendiary attack against a Citroen facility – 6th of December

Thursday, December 12th, 2019

You, that robbed us of everything, that place us under the painful scrutiny of systematic surveillance and uniformed thugs, you, you would be the ones pleading lies about forgiveness. You drag us out of rooftops and houses, of streets and squares, you judge, you order, you cage. You shoot and you win. And we won’t accept.

As the city glimmer with the flames that dance and not only with your cursed imprisoned lights, on your eyes grows fear.

For tonight it is your collaborators, your infrastructure, your damned cars that you’ll use to chase us, as anytime it might be just you.

On the evening of 6th December, nine incendiary devices were placed under same amount of cars on a Citroen facility in Athens, for being one of many that provide the material for the Greek police force to hunt and retain.

Your network will be threatened, your allies will be torched, your suffering will be ensured.

Never forgive.

Towards the total destruction of police and their bloody supporters.

Summer in Smoke: Report from the World’s Biggest Black Block – Hong Kong (China)

Tuesday, December 10th, 2019

The following article was submitted to Chuang by Vitalist International. It is an account of events in Hong Kong over the summer and early fall of 2019, much of it from a firsthand perspective. We provided minor edits and designed the layout, but otherwise reproduce the piece here in more or less its original form. While the main thrust of the article is in agreement with our own views of events in Hong Kong, the piece is an intake and the opinions expressed here belong to its authors. At the bottom, we’ve included a gallery (provided by the authors) of 70+ posters, memes, graffiti and other graphics used in the movement.

für Sandra in liebendem Angedenken

by Vitalist International

It was only a matter of time before it happened. The protesters and the cops both knew it. On October 1st, a teenager was shot point-blank in the chest by police. The bullet missed his heart by approximately three centimeters.

Thousands of Hong Kongers gathered the next evening at a playground to fold paper cranes and wish the young protester a speedy recovery. They held banners saying “stop shooting our children!” and used the flashlights on their smartphones as torches to light up the night. In the center of the playground, a thousand origami cranes spelled out “Hong Kongers, Add oil!”, a Chinese expression which has come to define the movement, meaning roughly: don’t stop, keep going, add fuel to the fire. Within an hour, the protesters were setting up barricades in the streets and throwing molotovs at the nearest police headquarters.

The movement that began as a protest against a proposed extradition agreement with China has now entered its fourth month of unrest, with no end in sight. The bill — now withdrawn — would have granted the Chinese State unprecedented authority to extradite dissidents, criminals, and refugees to be processed in the shadowy court system of the mainland. Coming on the heels of 2012’s Moral and National Education Law and 2014’s Electoral Reform Bill,[i] this amendment was only the latest attempt at slowly dismantling the region’s tenuous political arrangement of “One Country, Two Systems.” With the movement rapidly evolving into widespread resistance against Chinese control, and the Hong Kong government declaring a State of Emergency, the situation has reached a political stalemate, with violence escalating on both sides.

Leipzig, Germany: Arson Attack Against the Federal Office of Taxes and Finances

Tuesday, December 10th, 2019

Arson Attack on Saxon federal office of taxes and finances – No one will be able to pacify our struggle – Solidarity Greetings to the fighting companions in Exarchia

The Saxon federal office of taxes and finances (LSF) is in charge of the financial administration of the Saxon federal state and provides the juristic basis for enforcement measures and the enforcement of juristic judgments, such as forced evictions or confiscations to compensate debts. Being under patronage of the German state, this ministry performs the political agenda of the free market. The LSF is enforcing the national financial policy, which privileges companies and disadvantages the people. This policy is driven by the ideology of the “Black Zero”. The neoliberal doctrine of economizing provokes the capital’s overarching control over all social spheres. Through privatization and the cutting of taxes for major companies, any social attempt is buried completely under the logic of profit.

Under guidance of the German State the dictate of economizing (Spardiktat), which is targeting us here, is enforced all over Europe and worldwide. Germany bears the blame for economizing the Greek public to complete destruction, as well as for letting loose the property of the Greek people to the total exploitation of private investors. In consequence rampant unemployment arose, many people lost their base of existence, some committed suicide, many died on the streets, because they haven’t had shelter or couldn’t afford necessary medical support or medication.

Athens, Greece: Attack against surveillance systems company in Kaisariani

Tuesday, December 10th, 2019

While the garbage in uniforms occupied for another night Exarchia and the center of Athens, to fulfill the dreams of Mr. Chryssochidis of a dead and safe city, our ways lead to a soft target.

The image of George Orwell „1984“ is already reality. The internet of things implements televisions, refrigerators and other electronic stuff in our homes, in order to collect our data, to survey our habits, to transform human life in digital algorithm. They call it Smart City, we call it a totalitarian society.

A company which sells the hard ware of the smart city and also its ideologies, is the security company „Alphacom“. Alphacom not only provides this, but also CCTV technology and other equipment for the rich and for authorities, to protect their interests. And last but not least, Alphacom is selling and installing the products of Tyco. Tyco is a mulitinational company, which produces surveillance technologies for prisons worldwide and other security forces.
In the early hours of December 2, we burned the van of Alphacom in front of their shop in Kaisariani.

This fire was lit for anarchist prisoner Dino Giagtzoglou, who wrote a letter to the International Meeting against the Techno-Sciences in Italy (July 2019)

in which he mentions many reasons to fight this part of the capitalist powersystem. We welcome the upcoming research about the players in this game.

This fire was also lit for Loic, still in prison in Hamburg.

Finally, this attack was made in solidarity and sympathy with those persecuted for the Revolutionary Self-Defense case, as well as those persecuted for good intentions, kinship or friendship. Our strength and solidarity are superior to the politics and repressive operations.

Strength to the comrades Michailidis, Athanassopoulou, Chatzivasileiadis, who are in illegality.

Munich, Germany: Solidarity with the social revolt in Chile!

Sunday, November 24th, 2019

Munich, 20.11.19: In Chile tens of thousands of people have been revolting for weeks against the prevailing normality. Police stations, churches, banks, shopping malls, buses, subway stations and universities burn. The normal everyday life has come to a standstill and the state and capitalist power is attacked.

How can we express our solidarity and solidarity with the revolts there?

There are various possibilities … in Munich, for example, In recent nights, several ticket machines have been lit and burned at various stations. Also, the Chilean Consulate was defaced with color and “Fire to all states! (A)“ sprayed next to this. A nearby church was smeared and sprayed with “No God No State No Patriarchy” on it.

It would be nice if such proposals were to be disseminated wildly and other possibilities of solidarity put into practice.

Athens, Greece: Responsibility claim for the attack against DIAS forces and MAT van in Exarchia

Sunday, November 24th, 2019

In the night of Thursday 7th of November 2019, we chose to attack to the riot-police (MAT) van, which stays in front of the KINAL (ex PASOK) offices, and to the motorcycle-police (DIAS forces) that was accompanying them during their shift-change. Our choice was totally targeted.

In a conjuncture that the government of New Democracy has unleashed a man-hunt against anyone who fights, in a conjuncture of evicting migrant’s and political-social spaces of struggle, in a conjuncture of the concrete abolition of the university’s asylum and the invasion of MAT and OPKE cops into the universities – in this conjuncture we chose to make an ambush against the scums of MAT and the lackeys of the DIAS forces, and attack them from two sides with incendiary devices, destroying their motorbikes, injuring three of them, and simultaneously trying to burn the van that was immobilized on Eressou street.

This action took place inside the area of Exarchia, so as to make clear that the continuation of the state’s repressive policy’s aggravation will have the equivalent answers. What followed our action, just verified our valid act to -victoriously- fight against the torturers of the Greek Police: random prosecutions, attempt to invade the café on the square, tortures against combatants, fulfilling the neighbourhood with tear-gases.

Police showed its real face once again, when a few militants -with home-made means of struggle- attacked the fully-armed guards of the order, managing to ruck the contrived omnipotence sense in this area.
Managing, also, to remind that the “surgical” operations of M. Chrisochoidis police are carried out with no anaesthetic, when they have to cope with the resistance which shames repression and measures its limits. And, finally, reminding that, without combative reflexes and intensification of the social-class resistances, it is sure that these repressive operations will achieve to numb and paralyze the movement, which will get used to the repression, incorporating fear and relinquishment.

The attack against the movement is an integral part of a larger attack against the acquired rights established on the cost and with the self-sacrifice of the combative society. The supposed passage towards the capitalist development, as a last effort of the system to handle the deep structural crisis of the Capital, signs the higher accumulation of wealth in the rich hands, the deepening of exploitation against the poor ones, the re-allocation of poverty and beggary, the intensification of precarious, underpaid and undervalued work.

That’s why capitalism constantly upgrades its repressive arsenal. That’s why it strengthens it’s laws against the insurrection that will, necessarily, outbreak the next years in Greece too. That’s why it attacks rashly and rabidly against the structures and the people of struggle, treating the movement as a “criminal association” which must be immediately eradicated.

If we want to block the preventive strategy of counter-insurgency, we must raise the wall of the movement’s self-defence and the social-class
counter-violence against it.

PS.: Strength to the anarchist comrade V. Stathopoulos, who was imprisoned after the massive repressive operation that was concerted by the scums of anti-terrorist police on the 8th and 9th of November 2019.

Athens, Greece: Responsibility claim for the attack to the New Democracy offices and to the Hellenic Post at Pefki

Sunday, November 24th, 2019

We claim the responsibility for the incendiary attacks against the local offices of New Democracy and the building of the Hellenic Post at the area of Pefki in the northern suburbs (of Athens), as a fiery welcoming for the new government and its politicians, such us the human garbage with the axes* who sit on the parliament seats, and our lovely scum Adonis Georgiadis, an infamous hilarious political figure of the extreme right wing. Each one of our attacks is a promise to our struggle towards anarchy, and our signal of solidarity with our wanted and imprisoned comrades. For now, we don’t have many things to say. Now is the moment for action and for constant and abiding multi-form struggle. Strength to and complicity with everyone who will take the streets with the desire to vandalize, to throw stones to the cops, and to burn the authoritarian symbols. Strength to and complicity with all the anarchist prisoners all around the world. Solidarity means attack.

STRENGTH TO THE WANTED ANARCHIST DIMITRIS CHANTZIVASILIADIS

Nothing is over, we’ll be back

LONG LIVE ANARCHY

PS.: STRENGTH TO THE IMPRISONED ANARCHIST V. STATHOPOULOS

Thessaloniki, Greece: Responsibility claim for the arson of a diplomatic vehicle

Thursday, November 14th, 2019

IT/EN (October 31st, 2019)

Social peace in Chile is now a thing of the past. And tolerance and consensus for State and capitalist barbarism also belongs to the past. Submission to the modern version of the Pinochet dictatorship, represented by the Piniera government. Chile is burning with the insurrectional proletarian flame of the oppressed.

It all started on October 19 when a student protest against an increase in public transport ticket prices was met with violent repression from the police forces. From then on, everything took its course. Day by day millions of insurgents flood the streets, attack the police forces, burn and plunder the symbols of wealth and power. They are burning their past, marching on the insurgent horizons of tomorrow. 11 years after the uprising in the Greek territories, these rebels remind us of what we loved most: the refusal to return to normality.

Insurrection is no longer a dead word. It is the dying breath of order and safety within a society that has been choking from the misery and barbarism of capitalism. And the result of the persistent labour of all those who work so consistently and stubbornly to question and destabilize the regime’s social consensus. Against the first retreat of the regime which hastily went to negotiations, proposing new, more favourable measures, the rebels respond without repentance: Tomorrow starts a new day of class war. Let’s take everything! (more…)

Milan, Italy: Arson attack against five cars of Metropolitane Milanesi

Thursday, November 14th, 2019

IT/EN

On the night of November 6, 2019, we burned 5 cars of MM [Metropolitane Milanesi] in Forze Armate street in Milan because MM is one of those responsible for the evictions of houses.

This action is in solidarity with all those arrested and investigated after the eviction of Asilo Occupato in Turin.
In solidarity with those affected by the repression at Barona in Milan.
In solidarity with all prisoners.

Note: Metropolitane Milanesi, the company that manages underground transport in Milan, since some years is managing a part of the residential popular housing in Milan; while the remaining part is managed by Aler. Barona is a neighborhood in Milan; the repressive fact referred to in the text happened on October 30, when some members of the Comitato Autonomo Abitanti Barona (“Autonomous Committee of Barona Inhabitants”, an antagonistic group related to the struggle for the house in the neighborhood) received some “divieti di dimora” (bans) from Milan.

Ukraine: Two cell towers of Life/Turk-cell destroyed in Kyiv region – Solidarity with struggle in Kurdistan

Thursday, November 14th, 2019

In October 2019 the Turkish state invaded Northern Syria. The target of their aggression was Democratic Federation of Northern and Eastern Syria (Rojava). By the fault of rulers blood is being shed again and peacful people are suffering and dying. The goal of the president of Turkey Erdogan is to destroy revolutionary Autonomy of Syrian Kurds. Revolutionaries of Kurdistan build a society of stateless popular self-management. And Rojava became an example and model for Kurds in Turkey. That is why «Turkish sultan» started a war.

In the night of November 11 we destroyed two cell phone network towers of the Lifecell company settled by the Zahaltsy and Piskivka settlements in Kyiv region. Lifecell is fully owned by Turkish giant TURKCELL, the largest mobile provider of the State of Turkey. As a large corporate tax payer Turkcell appears as the indirect sponsor of the aggression of Erdogan`s regime. There are also widely known connections of the provider with the ruling «Justice and Development Party» which construct the basis of the current system in the country. These are the reasons why we consider the property of Lifecell as a legitimate target for the sabotage.

We stay in solidarity with revolutionaries and people of Kurdistan. They fight the occupation and oppression — for the liberty and social justice. We call to everyone who cares about the situation to participate in the resistance in a manner according to their abilities.

Freedom to the peoples — death to the Empires!

Kiev, Ukraine: Anarchists burned a police car

Saturday, October 26th, 2019

E-mail communication dated 18 October 2019

It’s a classic, it’s a must-know thing!

On the night of 16 to 17 October 2019, the Toyota Prius car of the patrol police was burned to the ground. It happened at the guarded parking lot in Svyatoshinsky district of Kyiv. We, anarchists, take responsibility for the arson and will publish an exclusive video where you can see how the police car burns.

Why are we at war with the police bastards?

Today, our lives are under the iron control of the state and corporations. No one asks us whether we want it or not. The authorities do what they think is right. For them, we are a commodity, cattle and lowlifes. Everyone who wants to oppose this way of life is expected to face repression, death. But control and repression would not be possible without the police, the rotten body of the Interior Ministry. The police are the main instrument in the hands of the authorities. Therefore, we are forced to wage war with police crap – for the sake of freedom, for the sake of justice. (more…)

Mexico: ‘Nos portamos mal, muy mal y podemos portarnos peor!’ – Algunxs Anarquistas Informales en Conflicto Permanente

Tuesday, October 1st, 2019

EN: We are behaving badly, very badly– and we can behave worse!

El Estado mexicano en su lógica dominadora, continúa acusándonos de “provocadores” e imponiendo el pacifismo ciudadano del “pueblo bueno”. Y ahora trata de ir más lejos…

Desde el púlpito mañanero AMLO intenta invisivilizarnos, exterminarnos, desaparecernos, es por eso que tergiversa el sentido de la lucha anárquica, de nuestra historia y hasta el mismísimo significado de la palabra ANARQUÍA. Por eso nos denomina “conservadores” mientras imparte “lecciones” a sus mascotas felices, con el consentimiento de las focas aplaudidoras que fingen ser periodistas cada mañana en palacio nacional.

Para AMLO, al igual que para todos los presidentes anteriores (y para todos lxs jefes de Estado en la historia), el/la mejor anarquista es el que está muertx o el oportunista que renuncia a las ideas y le lame las botas, como es el caso del estalinista converso Paco Ignacio Taibo.

Esa es la razón por la que AMLO miente y nos señala como “conservadores”. Todxs sus enemigxs, somos “conservadores”, incluixs lxs anarquistas. (more…)
