Sberbank bank is attacked with molotovs on 19/01/13 in Southern Moscow (Russia)

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

First of all we want to send “flaming” salute to our brothers and sisters. Strength to anarchist prisoners and those who chose the life in underground. We remember our fallen comrades and we do our best to avenge them [a reference to Jan 19 “in memoriam” march commemorating another anniversary of the death of Anastasia Baburova and Stanislav Markelov – antifascists killed by nazi death squad – trans.]. For your freedom and ours! Nobody will win our happiness except ourselves. Keep rocking the boat! [a hint at the popular liberal anti-putin motto]! We’ll throw them into water and send to fish! There’s no need for explanations or excuses in regards to what we do. Everyday our conscience pushes us towards breaking “the law”. Only the joy of struggle and resistance fills us with the feeling of unruliness. We urge everyone who has had a chance at throwing a molotov or using a weapon, but got rooted in everyday routine, to remember the feeling. We want everyone who has only recently came to this understanding to think about it. Make one more step. Act. Everything is in your hands. May the fires light the path you take.

– Let no cop nor all fire brigades find your fingerprints where they may

Tonight we went out into the streets one more time. As soon as sky darkened, we attacked “Sberbank” bank office in southern Moscow [“Sberbank” offices are closed on weekends – trans]. Several dozens of passers-by became passive spectators of the action. As soon as we started breaking through windows they tried to voice their discontent. A blow. Then Another one. As soon as whole big enough for molotov to pass through showed itself, we tossed several cocktails inside. None of the honest and law-abiding citizens found enough courage to intervene. All they were good for was calling police. And a-driving they came. 15 minutes after we retreated through the park to nearby subway. With nobody to arrest they continued to scare away local crows with noisy sirens.

Toronto action in solidarity with Villa Amalias and LK37 (Canada)

Saturday, January 19th, 2013

325 receives and transmits:

In the early hours of the morning we struck another small blow against the mechanisms of capital. The street level of one of the many new condo developments under construction in the city, containing building supplies as well as the architectural plans for the building, was smashed and then set ablaze as a small gesture of our rage. Our anger is directed both towards the continuing, and celebrated, gentrification within the city, and the ongoing imprisonment of anarchist comrades around the world.

Gentrification is the celebrated death of community in slow motion. The encroachment of high priced individualized living spaces into a community forces out people to whom boutique living is unaffordable, splitting up life long friendships and personal relations. With this come the chain store vultures picking apart the carcasses of local, independent stores as well as the inevitable “cleansing” of the area, removing any unwanted signs of life or suffering. The aspirational advertisements which accompany these developments hide the secret that instead of a lifestyle change or upgrade, what is being sold is an isolative and vacuous box with the trappings and veneer of luxury, as well as one’s very own role in the destruction of a pre-existing community.

With one change of our clothes we disappeared into the night undetected. This is not an attempt at a gloat or a glorification, but an attempt to show how easily buynolvadexonlineshop.com these acts can be replicated elsewhere. Let’s make their lives as difficult as they try to make ours. This is an escalation in regards to our tactics, but we realize these acts are still of small scale in relation to actions of comrades across the world.
With this, we also recognize the need to intensify our attacks against the state and capital in North America in relation to the intensity of repression and attacks against the anarchist and anti-authoritarian community. With every wave of repression must follow a targeted, critiqued, and increasingly militaristic response.

This is an act of solidarity with the people of the Villa Amalias and Lelas Karagianni 37 squats in Athens who have had their homes raided by the brutal, fascist Greek police. We chose to target new housing developments, catering to the bourgeois of the city, as they lie in direct contrast to the vibrance, community and solidarity seen in squats across the world. Another stark difference is the economically exclusionary nature of private property. We are not fighting for “affordable housing” or “income-based housing”, we are fighting for housing for every human being, regardless of economic status.

We also send an embrace warmed with love and rage to Panagiotis Argirou. Strength comrade, so you may continue this fight.

For the negation of every oppression this society is complicit in.
Until the last prison walls crumble…

The Toronto Solidarity Cell.

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

Friday, January 11th, 2013

325 receives and transmits:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Salute!

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

Friday, January 4th, 2013


FAI/ELF COMMUNIQUE FOR TV & RADIO BLACKOUT

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

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

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

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

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

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

Athens: 27/6/12 – Full communiqué for the high-profile vehicle-bomb against Microsoft by Deviant Behaviours for the Spread of Revolutionary Terrorism – International Revolutionary Front (Greece)

Monday, December 31st, 2012

325 receives and transmits:

Download PDF version

On Wednesday, June 27, at dawn, we attacked the headquarters of Microsoft with a vehicle-bomb. We drove through the main entrance and detonated the bomb van in the building, with about 150 litres of gasoline as a gift. Throughout the course of the operation the team ensured that no one would be in any danger, and, contrary to the assertions of several newspapers, they did not use firearms to immobilize the security personnel. It was an act of war against the widespread insidious silence and captivity generated by this modern world.

“Caught in prison-society…”

Growing up and wasting time and every minute of our lives in the great prison, in the city where they suffocate million people with anxiety and stress. It’s crazy and nonsense that so many people are crammed like zombies, like canned sardines in the giant cities. In factories, in their jobs, in artificial parks, in front of televisions, in the ranks of the unemployment offices, at checkouts. To have and to blackmail.

The rates here are predatory, blackmailing dilemmas, more suffocating than ever; psychiatric drugs
off-the-shelf and anti-depressants cure every patient of the modern lifestyle.

Asylums, psychiatrists and psychologists, prisons, are they not cages like the filthy flats and apartment blocks, who in their own cannibalistic way, imprison human emotion, vitality and energy?

Are not the crowded malls, noisy streets and the constant drone of horns of those who are rushing to gain a minute and get faster to work, school or important meetings?

Is prison not all around you? (more…)

Athens: Fighting Minority / Commando Alexandros Grigoropoulos take responsibility for burning the personal cars of ex-minister of Economy and National Defence, Giannos Papandoniou (Greece)

Friday, December 14th, 2012

7/12/2012

We claim the responsibility for the incendiary attack at the house of ex-minister of Economy and National Defence, Giannos Papandoniou. We arrived outside the door of his mansion on Olympias street in Kifissia and torched the two cars used by him and his “wife” Roula Kourakou for their meaningless movements. The personal guard the pig has could not ensure the security he seeks. Although our thoughts flirted constantly with the image of the flaming mansion and the terrorized Papandoniou and his “wife” looking for a way out, we had from the beginning eliminated such an idea since inside the mansion is also their young child which we did not want to put in any danger.

Far from a populist rhetoric we identify in the face of Giannos Papandoniou an officer of authority. We are not interested in listing the dodgy things he has done, although he surely has done many. Either way, corrupted or not corrupted, state officers, irrelevantly if they hold their positions in the state mechanism, are a permanent target for the insurrectionist dignities. We carried out our attack on the same night when four years ago cops murdered comrade Alexandros Grigoropoulos. Four years ago and someone left early, a cry of death which detonated the insurrection and the incidents we all know, four years later on the same day, a large fire and a few explosions outside the house of a stated enemy re-ignite our hate and unleash the terror towards the desirable direction. Through personal attacks we desire to burglarize their safe territorial zones in their lives. Their houses, their cars, their prodigal life. (more…)

International Conspiracy for Revenge – FAI/IRF takes responsibility for arson of a school in Manado (Indonesia)

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

School burns during the week of solidarity action for Eat and Billy, called by the International Conspiracy for Revenge.

325 receives and transmits:

On 11 of November 2012, covered by the night and with desires of revolutionary solidarity to the imprisoned anarchists from around the world, we burnt one state elementary school in Paniki, Manado. We salute our action to all of our brothers and sisters from Informal Anarchist FederationInternational Revolutionary Front (FAI – IRF).

Maybe, many of the comrades will be asking why we put a fire in a school? It’s a simple answer.

First, school is a prison. And there’s no other excuse to defend the school and write it out from the list of targets of revolutionary actions. In school, we can’t learn about freedom, bravery, uniqueness and revolutionary solidarity. We learn nothing but the situation of society that imposes on our dignity as a human being. (more…)

'Long-Live Luciano Tortuga Cell – International Conspiracy for Revenge – FAI / FRI' attack electrical substation with incendiary device in Manado (Indonesia)

Sunday, September 2nd, 2012

From Membakar Senj[a]:

It’s always a reason to say that the lack of numbers is the main reason. But for us the only obstacle is fear. Theories, reasons and situations are the walls of the labyrinth which always became a reason for obstruction and restriction. As well as the accusations that the kidnapping of two members, of our comrades Billy and Eat, is a barrier to the ongoing actions for destruction.

On August 23, at a power plant in Kotamobagu, North Sulawesi, we put an incendiary device that failed to ignite. We were disappointed with ourselves and the ability of each individual who was involved in the attack. But on the other hand, we learned that no one should regret. Tonight August 31, we re-commit to do the same “crimes”. Leaving the device in order to burn an electrical substation in Tuminting, Manado.

The goal is clear. We are angry. Really angry!

This action is also as a response and as an answer to the unlimited solidarity from many rebellion comrades and companer@s.

To the uncontrolled and brave comrades in the darkness of Bolivia, Chile, Mexico, Greece, Argentina, and England as well as to other places that were never mentioned.

To Olga and all the comrades from Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and Tasos Theofilou who was recently arrested because he was an anarchist. Also we do not forget to mention Theofilos Mavropoulos, Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Rami Syrianos, and Marco Camenisch who are undergoing a hunger strike. All of you are rebels who inspired us despite the fact that you are seized behind bars.

To Luciano Tortuga and Mario Lopez, also never forget to mention Ivan Silva and Carla Verdugo in Chile. Henry Zegarrundo, Juan Aliste Vega, Freddy Fuentevilla Saa, Marcelo Villarroel Sepúlveda also are an inspiration. Do not forget to dissidents like Felicity Ryder, Nikos Maziotis and Pola Roupa also lastly to K. The fugitive member of the Long Live Luciano Tortuga Cell, Informal Anarchist Federation / International Revolutionary Front (FAI / FRI).

But with fully of shame in our face we mention our two brothers in struggle, members of Long Live Luciano Tortuga Cell, Informal Anarchist Federation / International Revolutionary Front; Billy Augustan and Reyhard Rumbayan (Eat). Also do not forget the brave one of Kulonprogo; Tukijo. For those we send our greetings with the lights of fire from the street. To them we are sending our love.

These actions are also as a manifestation of anger and disappointment.
Impatience for those rebels who after attacks returned to run and hide and spent long time to keep waiting, including us.

Comrades, it is time to strike back.
Do not wait. Time to light it up!

Long Live Anarchy!

Adalah sebuah alasan untuk mengatakan bahwa jumlah adalah alasan. Karena bagi kami ternyata satu-satunya halangan adalah ketakutan. Berbagai teori, alasan juga situasi dan kondisi adalah berbagai tembok labirin yang selalu jadi alasan tentang halangan dan pembatasan. Juga seperti tuduhan bahwa tertangkapnya dua orang kamerad anggota kami Billy dan Eat adalah penghalang akan aksi pengrusakan yang berkelanjutan. (more…)

Parma: Three mobile phone masts set on fire in solidarity with imprisoned comrades (Italy)

Saturday, September 1st, 2012

From informa-azione.info via act for freedom now/B.pd:

We receive from anonymous mail and transmit:

In the night between 29th and 30th August we set three mobile phone masts on fire in the vicinity of Parma west exit on the A1 highway. The landscape where the masts stood include, in the space of a few hundred metres, a railway track with adjoining yards, power plants, a highway, intensive farming facilities, factories and luxury villas. Many of these infrastructures feed the mega monster of the technological and industrial machinery and the insatiable thirst for energy and mobility required by the western civilized lifestyle.

Each of these structures only inspires us to destroy them and the desire to put an end to this absurd world, as we are proud to be untameable social misfits! To all the indomitable warriors burning with the instinct of freedom!

This is for you, Marco, brother and comrade! May action spread for all our comrades in prison!

Solidarity with Elisa, Ale, Katia, Sergio, Paola, Stefano, Giulia and Peppe in prison for operation Ardire, to Gabriel Pombo Da Silva and the investigated in operation Mangiafuoco.

Bristol: 'Free Thought Association / Fraction of Gender Renegades' burn a vehicle of the 'Jesus Kingdom City' (UK)

Thursday, August 30th, 2012

325 receives and transmits:

30 August 2012

In the early hours of this morning, Jesus Kingdom City (part of the Pentecostal crusaders the Redeemed Christian Church of God), based in the center and preying on the neighborhoods of the exploited and which partners with other missionaries in Africa and Asia, had their minibus set alight on Beaufort Road, St George, Bristol.

“Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the foul of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”Genesis 1:28

“A woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.”Proverbs 31:30 (front page of Jesus Kingdom City’s website)

“Humanity will not be free until the last king is strangled with the guts of the last priest.”Denis Diderot

Since the first class-based societies, religion has meant the enforcement of submission, punishment, debt, sacrifice, self-hatred and bigotry. Specifically, Christianity has always gone hand in hand with European colonization, often initially paving the way for military/economic hegemony and aiming to subdue and indoctrinate potentially-inconvenient populations. This poisonous work continues in the missions of today, through the paternalistic logic of development and assimilation, and propagating the segregated supremacy of man over woman / human over nature.

Victory for the hunger strike of Marco Camenisch, which has been joined by Elisa di Bernardo!

Iconoclastic regards to the first-phase members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, especially this time to Olga Ekonomidou who last braved solitary confinement for 53 days for her continued insubordination; to comrade Tortuga; to the informal element in Melbourne; and to the anarchic heretics under investigation in Italy.

This time the focus of our negation was Christianity – in the future it will just as easily be any other spook (religious or not) seeking to repress and reduce the absolute sovereignty of unique individualities into categories, identities and moralities.

Walk into the night of chaos…

FAI-FRI claim responsibility for incendiary attack against Trastor REIC (Greece)

From contrainfo:

13 August 2012

Athens: Responsibility claim for arson on the headquarters of Trastor real estate investment company

We are witnessing the most extreme contradictions that are born and die in this shit-world. While the calculators of sorcerer’s apprentices of economic statistics are counting 23,000 dead in Syria, billions of people are watching besotted the London Olympic Games; the distance between the Olympic and the ‘practical’ shooting in the field of operations is just a simple push of the button on a remote control. If only it could happen… all these rivers of blood to become an impetuous torrent which will drown athletes and spectators. If only it could happen… We can refer all the same to the thousands of homeless people ‘messing up’ the image of the dire city, while the rich enjoy their luxurious comforts in the gardens of Ekali and Kifissia (two of the richest suburbs of Athens).

Societies that, despite their contradictions, manage to reproduce the stench they’re emitting, partitioning everyone and everything, manufacturing hundreds of microcosms.

Power is not a compact structure but a diffused edifice, located on the systemic structures—economic, institutional, etc.—and human relations. Starting from society’s chopping into antagonistic-with-each-other subsets, the constant fragmentation continues in the individual’s daily life within the capitalist world; in every aspect of the individual’s life, in every field of expression.

Multiple Arsons: Olympic torch returns to Bristol (GB)

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

From Bristol IMC:

On Monday 31st we lit up the opening week of the Olympics with an attack on two vehicles (and all the equipment they contained) belonging to British Telecom (BT), an “official Olympic partner”. It’s a small reply to the heightened repression in London.

In Longwell Green this week we then sabotaged a mast owned by BT’s parent company, O2, the mobile phone network. We burnt out the mast by setting fire to the cables at the bottom.

While the thousands who can afford to swell the economy are welcomed by the state for the Olympics, O2 profits from the exploitation of a literal captive audience of “illegal” migrants who are forced to use O2 phones with extortionate pricing in a pilot scheme at Yarl’s Wood “Immigration Removal Centre” (prison) which is run by Serco. The authorities can monitor calls with ease, and the network is easier to shut down in the event of a disturbance or as punishment for rule breaking. There are currently mass hunger strikes in Germany and the UK (in Morton Hall, a former open prison now specifically designated for “foreign nationals”), these hunger strikes are an expression against detention, control and isolation.
