Frankfurt: Arson Attack Against Deutsche Bahn – 6 Vehicles Destroyed (Germany)

Friday, July 6th, 2018

06.07.18: Last night we destroyed 6 Deutsche Bahn (German Railways) vehicles near Frankfurt West railway station. We are opposed to German support for the war of aggression by the Turkish government in Northern Syria as well as the ongoing raids and arrests of left-wing activists.

We set fire to six Deutsche Bahn vehicles used for making repairs. We deliberately carried out our action in a way that ensured there was no danger to anybody. Deutsche Bahn is a leading logistics partner of NATO. Dying and killing in the name of our ‘democracies’ is not an option for us. We will continue to side with the revolutionary forces in Syria and elsewhere.

Here in Germany there are enough reasons too, we do not even know where to start with this police state: the complete erosion of what once referred to itself as a constitutional state. Mass public manhunts. The raids against German technology associations because they have a donation account for a legal US email provider and for using an email address that was used to promote protests against the AFD! (Alternative for Deutschland, right-wing populist party)* Or the banning of Linksunten Indymedia. Or the arrests in the Rhine-Main area for alleged participation in the G20 protests. Or the searches in France, because those affected allegedly raised their arms at the G20. What a complete misunderstanding of every situation in the Schanze.**

Berlin: Solidarity with Nantes! Arson Attack Against a Van Belonging to Prison Service Provider SPIE (Germany)

Thursday, July 5th, 2018

05.07.18: The wave of exuberant hatred for the arbitrariness of uniformed individuals spills once more across the borders of France to us. For the last two nights in Nantes, hundreds of teenagers have destroyed shops, set fire to cars and attacked the CRS (Compagnies Républicaines de Sécurité / general reserve of the French National Police) with Molotovs.

Aboubakar was executed on Tuesday night in a suburb of Nantes in his car by a police officer after he was placed under arrest during a vehicle inspection…

The police spread their version that they were in danger and it was in self-defense. It is obvious that the ‘legitimacy’ of the murder that they make public is found only in the self-created legitimacy of the police apparatus. Since we refuse to recognize that law, there can never be legitimacy for execution by a cop. (more…)

New Caledonia: Sabotaging the Mining Industry (Oceania)

Wednesday, July 4th, 2018

On Wednesday, June 27th, 2018, the managers of Société Le Nickel (SLN), a subsidiary of the French company Eramet in New Caledonia, publicly complained about repeated sabotage targeting nickel mining and transportation infrastructure.

The sabotages have all been targeting an 11km conveyor that is used to transport the nickel ore from the deposit to the Kouaoua site (north-east of Grande-Terre) at the seaside, where around 200 people are directly employed. On June 23rd, during the last arson attack against this ‘treadmill’ that is nicknamed The Serpent, a stolen vehicle was placed under the infrastructure and then set on fire.

The financial cost related to these multiple sabotages amounts to 150 million CFP francs (1.25 million euros) for the company.

For the time being, SLN “does not plan to close its Kouaoua center”, from which about 600,000 of the three million tonnes of ore that the company refines at its Noumea plant are extracted each year.

Until now, only one person has been arrested for these serial sabotages, a 31 year old man who was sentenced on June the 19th to 18 months in prison without parole. At the court case he had questioned “pollution” and the “promises” of public facilities that were not kept by SLN.

In New Caledonia, attacks against mining companies do not end in truces. Recently SLN suffered major damage not only to its Kouaoua site, but also at Thio during the transition to the year 2018. Other mining companies, such as Groupe Ballande, lost 5 vehicles and a workshop to the flames in Canala in early January 2018.

Reivindicación de artefacto incendiario en bus del Transantiago (Chile)

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

El lunes 4 de junio instalamos en el recorrido I 01 del Transantiago un artefacto incendiario, que logró su activación pero debido a algún fallo interno no generó el daño deseado. Tras la detonación el chofer baja a los pasajeros y conduce el microbus hacia el terminal de la empresa, donde es periciado por la policía.
Creemos en lo contagioso y reproducible de la acción destructiva, con lo que creamos necesario y tengamos al alcance. Desde la calle, saludamos a lxs grupos e individuxs que han decidido romper la normalidad imperante.
Atacamos en solidaridad con el machi Celestino Córdova, nuevamente en huelga de hambre, desafiando las disposiciones del Estado Chileno y el control de Gendarmería.

Nuestro ataque revive los latidos insurrectos del Punki Mauri, a 9 años de su muerte, la anarquía no acaba ni olvida.

¡Mauricio Morales presente!
¡En solidaridad con lxs presxs de la larga condena!

Claim of incendiary device in Transantiago bus

On Monday, June 4, we installed an incendiary device on Transantiago route I 01. The incendiary achieved its activation but due to some internal failure did not generate the desired damage. After the detonation the driver lowered the passengers out and drove the microbus to the terminal of the company, where it is investigated by the police.
We believe in the contagious and reproducible destructive action, with what we have within reach and for what is needed to create. From the street, we greet the groups and individuals who have decided to break the prevailing normality.
We attacked in solidarity with the machi Celestino Córdova, again on hunger-strike, defying the dispositions of the Chilean State and the control of police.

Our attack revives the insurrectionary beats of Punki Mauri, 9 years after his death, anarchy does not end nor forget.

Mauricio Morales present!
In solidarity with the prisoners with long sentences!

‘Black and Green Arsonists’ take responsibility for Animal Liberation arsons – Green Nemesis #3 – Athens (Greece)

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

Here we reproduce the report of the incendiary attack from ‘Black and Green Arsonists’ – their claim of responsibility for Green Nemesis Act 3. We note that the rhetoric of ‘indiscriminate attack’ can lend itself to the green authoritarianism of the Church of Eco-Extremism, and whilst the attacks don’t possess the attributes of an authoritarian action it is worth being clear. There is a big difference between indiscriminately attacking the enemies and indiscriminately attacking random individuals. The communique has several interesting points about animal/earth liberationist struggle and we are happy to reproduce it. Until all are free.


Anonymous (delayed) report:

On October 28, we made a double hit in the area of ​​Zografou, burning a truck / refrigerator for meat transportation, with an incendiary mechanism. We also attacked a hunter’s car by breaking and burning gasoline in its interior. We also take responsibility for the Green Nemesis Act 3.

We indiscriminately attack what contributes to the incarceration, abuse and misery of animals. Whether this is a cosmetic showcase or a butcher, etc.

ANTHROPOCENTRISM

People from the very old age used the animals for their benefit. With the development of technology and its means, the exploitation of animals grew, while the value of life was undermined. Anthropocentrism is the one that leads millions of animals to death in order to become food, and not only. Workshops full of experimental animals. Also people still use animals for their own fun.

Berlin, Germany: Incendiary Actions Against Telekom, Deutsche Bahn and Vodafone

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

Berlin, June 2018

Restructuring power via digitization is in full swing. Hardly anything that cannot be complemented by a ‘smart’ in its name and thus a new place in this world has escaped this process. Everything is networked. Cameras, sensors and chips are constantly sending and letting things communicate. ‘Big Data’ is the currency of tomorrow. Even our relationships, actions and thinking are permanently exposed to digital access. Reduced to information, we feed the algorithms of the machines, helping to make the future manageable and controllable.

It’s not always easy to hold on to the possibility of destroying this system as the rapid pace of the technological attack is widening and the net of domination stretches around us. All the more important are the moments of counterattack to reject the powerlessness that is spreading in the face of current developments. So we are all the more pleased that the answers to the misery produced by the colonization of the world via techno-industrial hegemony are found again and again in Berlin. Within the context of the planned Google campus in Kreuzberg, a fight has developed that is not only aimed at the tech giants and their universe, but also at the social level. Self-organization, direct communication and the power of the attack are the means of choice. Various acts of sabotage, such as the one last March by ‘Vulkangruppe NetzHerrschaft zerreißen’ have shown that the infrastructure of the flow of goods, communication and data networks is vulnerable and can be disrupted by arson attacks against cable networks and sensitive radio antennas.

Tampere: Trucks torched at dairy company (Finland)

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

14.11.17

We wanted to dedicate this action to all our kidnapped friends, or those who have been kidnapped once, by setting fire to 4 trucks from one of the biggest milk companys in finland named valio. The action took place in a city named tampere in the early morning hours of this tuesday. Many of our cell have wanted to target this company for a long time. We think that it is not necessary to explain too much the reason of our selection: the milk industry has a long history of destruction, cruelty and torture on this planet, its ecosystem and their habitants. Like our friends the cows and the forests. Who are cruelly abused and murdered or destroyed by the production of milk.”

Limoges: Arson Attack Targeting Energy Company Enedis Destroys 20 Vehicles (France)

Thursday, October 26th, 2017

Note from Insurrection News, 25.10.17: During the night of October 23rd to 24th, a fire destroyed twenty vehicles belonging to the company Enedis (formerly known as ERDF), the electric power grid operator for most of France. Graffiti was left at the scene reading ‘LINKY GET OUT OF HERE!”. The next day Le Populaire du Center, a mainstream newspaper in the region announced that they had received a short communique from an anonymous group of women, using the acronym DECCLIN, claiming responsibility for the attack.

According to the communique, the women who carried out the arson attack did so to protest the lack of action by the authorities against Linky so-called ‘smart’ meters. Linky meters are basically a type of mini-computer similar to meters used in other parts of the world that are installed in homes to allow power companies to monitor electricity useage. (more…)

Incendiary anti-militarist actions against arms-companies (Belgium)

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

Lucrosum et decorum est pro patria facere?
[Is it profitable and proper to produce for the fatherland?]

They don’t speak Latin in Belgium.
At about 2 am on Monday 25th September the residents of Malines (a town half way between Brussels and Anvers) were woken by a string of detonations. As they looked out of their windows they saw a huge fire blazing in the buildings of a local company. In spite of the intervention of many fire brigade vehicles, nothing could be done. Of the 5,000 square metres of the company, nothing remained. Everything destroyed. A hard blow for Varec, a company that produces tracks for tanks and tyres for military vehicles and is a well-known supplier of the Armed Forces in the United States. (more…)

State repression against IMC Grenoble and IMC Nantes (France)

Wednesday, September 27th, 2017

Following the publication of a communiqué claiming responsibility for a fire in a garage at a Grenoble police depot (gendarmerie) during the night of September 20th/21st, Indymedia Grenoble and Indymedia Nantes have been threatened by the French police. The administrators of these sites have received emails from the Central Office for the Fight Against Crime Linked to Information Technology and Communication (OCLCTIC) demanding that the concerned articles be removed from the sites under (in) 24 hours, otherwise rendering the sites liable to blocking and dereferencing.

The communiqué’s authors explained that the garage fire had been carried out as “part of a wave of attacks in solidarity with people currently under trial” such as the Quai de Valmy police car arson.

In this Grenoble arson attack, several dozen vehicles have been burned (torched). Here is the communiqué itself: (more…)

Montreal – Arson of two luxury cars in St-Henri (Canada)

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

Inspired by the riots in Hamburg, we burned two luxury cars outside of a condo in St-Henri during the night of July 13. In a neighbourhood where people have to choose between food and rent, don’t be surprised when we set fire to your flagrant displays of class privilege.

We used a simple method: fire sticks half-covered in fire-paste. All the material can be found in a camping store. We lit the fire-paste covered end and placed it in the top corners of the car’s grill, between the headlights. We used two sticks per car. The fire is mostly invisible until plastic or motor oil catches fire, giving you time to leave unseen. Be careful: the fire can easily spread to cars parked close-by. (more…)

Thessaloniki: Arson of electrical transformer of OTE (Greece)

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

We are confronting technology to the extent that it is a tool in the hand of the bosses and capitalism, taking away our capabilities practical or not. Their target is to establish any kind of technology as crucial for each one of us, to enslave each mind and body to one or the other technological means that at first sight makes our lives easier and more pleasant.

The real consequence on the other hand, is the destruction of social and human relations and of the earth and nature. All of this for the development of robust social control and making profits.

An inner part of the technological complex is telecommunications, which cause people many harmful symptoms. (more…)
