Responsibility claim for arson attack against Emporiki bank in Kolonaki, Athens (Greece)

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

6 March 2011

“Our brothers fight…

They do not quit, they are not subjugated.
Our brothers by day conspire, and in the nights they move like shadows.
They sow destruction, they make passages, this is how they live.

They are not crawling ass-licking for the bread of the boss…

Our brothers seek comrades, to become one.
They do not spend their time on ephemeral relations, they look us deep in the eyes…

Our brothers stand up to the enemy since it does not frighten them. They are not afraid…

Fear is for bourgeois and snitches.

Our brothers stand proudly also in prison…

They do not regret, they do not comply with judges and people guards.

Our brothers do not beg for life.

They search for Freedom and go to the end.

Lambros Foundas is our brother, warrior of Freedom, member of Revolutionary Struggle, he fell in the battle, with a gun in his hand.

Tears do not suit our brothers, continuity of Struggle and attack suits them.

As a minimal token of honor we attacked the “Emporiki” bank on Skoufa street, in Kolonaki square, the early hours of Sunday 6th March.

We look up high, there where with other rare and beautiful makes plans. Grins to those that continue, to those that do not forget, to those that look at death and shout: Death does not exist!

HONOUR FOR EVER

Solidarity to the hostage Guerrillas of the Revolutionary Organisation Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, the Revolutionary Organisation Revolutionary Struggle and the Revolutionary Organisation 17th November.

Solidarity to the hostages of war that do not bow the head behind the bars of democracy.

Solidarity to the hunger strikers of the “bombs case” in Chile.

We raise our fists those that continue the hostilities…

FREEDOM TO ALL OF US”

Attacks in Barcelona dedicated to the prisoners of the "bombs case" (Chile)

Monday, March 14th, 2011

10 March 2011

We want to dedicate these small gestures of attack to all the insurgents across the globe

Because this world is totally subjugated by a system, the State-Capitalism, that devastates the planet and exploits and oppresses all life forms within it. Because in this system, a few privileged ones hold power, economic as well as social or political, and they use it as an instrument for subjugating the rest to the misery of its domination and domestication, through patriarchy, the state apparatus, and the economy, condemning thousands to death, to poverty, and condemning all those who rebel to repression, prison, punishment…

For all these reasons we have to rise up in war against the system and against all those who operate or directly support it: the rich, politicians, police, judges, journalists, and other trash. And to teach by example we try to do our little part so that this trash is also sometimes on the receiving end, via revolutionary violence, of the repercussions of their rottenness; so that at least they don’t sleep tranquilly and so that they feel that at any moment their property, their companies, their institutions can become the target of our rage.

That’s why on the night of March 10 we attacked the following sites in Barcelona

-A bank (Savings and Pension Bank of Barcelona) in the Sagrera neighborhood with the use of a homemade incendiary device consisting of flammable liquid, a homemade initiator, and a slow fuse.
-A Santander bank branch on Passeig Maragall, through the destruction of its windows.
-15 bancs in Gracia through the gluing of their doors and cash machines.

We want to dedicate these small gestures of attack to all the insurgents across the globe, with a special eye towards the 10 anarchists incarcerated in Chile on hunger strike, prisoners within the so-called “bombs case.” For them and all the other indomitables an insurrectionary greeting.

Revolt and sabotage are easy and reproducible. Anyone in any place can, individually or collectively, put them into practice. Let us extend the attacks against this infected system, and solidarity towards those who suffer it and towards those who are repressed by it.

We promise more and better.

Death to the State and long live Anarchy

3,000,000 € attack against European Space Agency research institute (Portugal)

Monday, September 27th, 2010

22 September 2010

Castelo Branco (Portugal): Fire in institute causes three million euros in damages

The fire that started this Wednesday at dawn in the building of the Instituto de Soldadura e Qualidade (ISQ; Welding and Quality Institute), in Castelo Branco, caused over three million euros in damages, according to its administrator Joaquim Guedelha.

The fire was ignited around 3h24 in the morning of September 8th, on the trucks parked next to the building and then spread to the institute. It was put down around 7h, as said by the chief of the fire brigade.

Joaquim Guedelha told Lusa (news agency) that the pavilion is going to be rebuilt, despite the huge damage, and maybe it’ll be ready to start functions again in three months, so that the Laboratory for Thermodynamical Trials (LABET), which is part of the ISQ, can restart its activity.

“We had several certification trials of cooling systems and transportation of perishable products going on, apart from the trials of materials we were doing for the European Space Agency (ESA)”, he said.

“The technical part of the installations is quite damaged, but the offices seem to be safe. By now it seems the project we were conducting for the ESA is safeguarded, but it’s still too soon to draw any conclusions”, said Vasco Pires.

The Castelo Branco ISQ, through its Laboratório de Ensaios Termodinâmicos (LABET), was testing the heat-resisting coating of the first ESA (European Space Agency) space shuttle.

Joaquim Guedelha underlined that the materials that were being tested are “unique, since this is the only place which is conducting these trials”.

All the materials and machinery inside the building were destroyed, but the administrator is optimistic: “we’re going to build other cooling tunnels similar to the one we had and put the machinery working, so that we can accomplish the objectives we had together with the European Space Agency”, he said.

Joaquim Guedelha also told that the ISQ will try to find temporary installations in Castelo Branco for the trials to go on until this building is rebuilt.

The Judiciary Police is investigating.

Serco van torched, Bristol (UK)

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

20 April 2010

“In the early hours of Tuesday, April 20th, a van belonging to Serco – a big player in the construction and management of private prisons – was torched in Montpellier, north Bristol.

We took this action to express our solidarity with the anarchist comrades in Turin whom the Italian state continues to attack under the precarious appearance of conspiracy, for nothing other than the distribution of anti-racist propaganda. We also attack for the comrades in Greece accused of participation in the ‘terrorist’ organization, Revolutionary Struggle.

Need it be said that we remember Alfredo and Christos, imprisoned in Korrydallos for a revolutionary act of expropriation against a bank in Trikala last October.

Until every filthy manifestation of this social prison in nothing but broken glass and burnt rubble, we will continue to fight.

Freedom”

Some thoughts from Moabit Prison (Germany)

Thursday, March 18th, 2010

… A letter from Berlin.

The cell is 6.20 × 2.60. It has a door with a peep hole and there’s a window. In front of it are thick bars which are already corroding, do not worry, they still keep doing. Probably the next one hundred years. Behind the bars, there is a tightly woven wire mesh to make sure the prisoners cannot exchange things. (more…)

Legal developments for Tobias (Germany)

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

On December 29th, 2009 Tobias P. was released from Moabit prison. As expected, the public prosecutor’s office represented by Pamela Kaminski has filed a complaint against rescinding the arrest warrant. Although no written justification has been published yet, an examination of the case by the next highest authority, the District Court, will most likely follow, which would result in reimprisonment in case the District Court allows the objection.

Toby released from Prison (Germany)

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

On the 29 December 2009, a comrade from Berlin, who was imprisoned for the arson of 3 expensive cars in the area of Friedrichshain was released from remand pending the further investigation. It seems the “granite” evidence that was used to keep him in the jail was not so “granite” under legal examination.

Solidarity with flames on X-mas day! (Greece)

Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

A communique from Greece for an arson, translated from an Athens Indymedia post on 27/12:

25 December 2009:

“In the late hours of Christmas we put up in flames 3 vehicles belonging to the Municipality of Stavroupoli in Thessaloniki. Whatever carries a state identity, escpecially like a big municipality of a big city, will always be a very good target. We chose this certain day in an attempt to reverse its mood and its moral guise, to sabotage the ridiculous festive atmosphere with the decorated trees, the mangers in the squares and with the shinny family dinners which hide a lot of hypocrisy and unhappiness. All these Christmas stupidities universally, based on spectacle and promoting the culture of mass consumption, with the anniversal humanitarianism and the “social solidarity” cannot be anything else than the confirmation of the society’s decay.

On our side we realise solidarity in a different way and make it an act through ceaseless revolutionary action till we get liberated from the chains of all authorities. So our solidarity, together with our warm greetings, we send to anarchist comrades that have been captured in the hands of the state for their decision to take part in social war.

To Gabriel Pombo Da Silva who is imprisoned in Aachen, Germany and who at this time is on hunger strike in his attempt to manifestate against the prison system for one more time and to the comrades that succour with hunger strike in various prisons around the world like Marcos Camenisch in Switzerland, Juan Carlos, Francisco, Honorio and Albert in Spain, Diego in Argentina and Sergio, Mike and Evelyn in Italy.

To Alfredo Bonnano, Christos Stratigopoulos and Amadeu Casellas that are confined and have been also in the past in prison for bank expropriations.

To Tamara that was arrested only 10 days ago and is held in women prisons Wad-Ras in Barcelona and is charged of sending a mail-bomb to the secretary of the Catalan penitentiary services.

Also to our detained comrades in Mexico, Chile, Usa, France, Italy and Serbia.

To our detained comrades in Greece; Giannis Dimitrakis, Polis Georgiadis, Giorgos Voutsis-Vogiatzis, Ilias Nikolaou, Panagiotis Masouras and Haris Hadjimihelakis.

Besides the above list there are hundreds more that live the hell of prison and oppose it with dignity as their are comrades that in order to avoid it are wanted by the authorities and others that are as well wanted with a money reward on top and many more that are under various restrictions and are awaiting trials.

To end, it will be impossible to forget and to not make a reference of honour to our dead comrades with the most recent examples being the shot dead by cops young Alexis Grigoropoulos, the shot and stabbed to death russian antifas Fedor Filatov and Ivan Khutorskoi and also Zoe from France and Mauricio Morales from Chile that found death when their homemade bombs exploded in different cases.

FIRE TO THE PRISONS – SMASH THE STATE!”

Solidarity with Toby (Germany)

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

Update: 29 December 2009, Toby has been released on remand, looks like the “granite” evidence turns out to not be so “granite”.

On the night of 15 November, three posh cars got torched in Friedrichshain, Berlin, as almost every night happens. However, the police arrested a younger comrade who they accuse of two of the arsons. They said he would have also carried gasoline for firelighters on himself. Straight away in the morning, some tabloid press published his pictures and full name and address, since he lives in a houseproject, the Liebig 14 (on the corner of Rigaerstrasse) which is due to be evicted.
