Nemesis Project: Incendiary/explosive attack against the ‘National Association of Judiciary Officials’ / Proyecto Nemesis: Artefacto incendiario/explosivo contra ‘Asociación Nacional de Funcionarios del Poder Judicial’ (Chile)

Saturday, December 17th, 2016

On the night of December 11, we placed a homemade incendiary/ explosive device with a delay system in the National Association of Judiciary Officials building located on Cienfuegos street in the center of Santiago. The device detonated perfectly and set fire to the door of the building.

The National Association of Judiciary Officials is the place where the officials who authorize the operation of the prison-court complex meet every day. We attacked a den of the active machinery of the system that each day allows the miserable individuals of the State apparatus to exercise the right that they have assumed to judge and imprison other people.

Each sentence issued by judges, each conviction requested by a prosecutor, each imprisonment in the prisons of power is supported by the role of judicial functionaries who validate with their work the existence and maintenance of this repressive industry.

In these times of trials against anarchists who risk long sentences our action is a ray of fire from the depths of our dark intentions towards the social order of dominion.

To act as part of the international proposal of the NEMESIS PROJECT that was initiated in Greece by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire comrades to hit the powerful and their accomplices in their homes, their work and meeting places. (more…)

Santiago: Barricadas con fuego – Sebastián Oversluij Seguel presente! (Chile)

Friday, December 16th, 2016

Nos reapropiamos del tiempo, es decir lo recuperamos, lo robamos. Así y solamente así logramos ponernos en comunión con otras individualidades para levantar una coordinación operativa con el objetivo de cuestionar y golpear lo establecido. Convencidxs de esto, irrumpimos con barricadas diversas calles y avenidas de Santiago, accionando contra el orden existente con el que lxs Poderosxs pretenden dominarnos.

La acción de propaganda realizada en las calles de la urbe va cargada de memoria vengativa pues ya van 6 años de absoluta impunidad desde que el Estado de Chile masacró a 81 presos. Efectivamente, fue en la madrugada del 8 de diciembre del 2010, en el ala sur y norte del piso 4, Torre 5 de la cárcel de San Miguel, donde la maquinaria Estatal mostró su verdadera cara, esta vez sin disimular ni ocultar la tortura y la muerte que trágicamente encarnó los cuerpos calcinados de 81 personas.

Christmas tree set on fire by anarchists in Crete on the anniversary of the murder of Alexis Grigoropoulos (Greece)

Friday, December 16th, 2016

Because of the day of the black anniversary of the murder of Alexis Grigoropoulos from the cop Korkoneas, some comrades chose to give a different meaning to this night by placing our own pebble in the frames of conflict. As a minimal token of protest against everything we experience and the consumerist craze of Christmas, with the help of flammable material and our will to leave the discussions and nonsense of the cafes, we proceeded to act. Just before the beginning of the demonstration we set fire to the Christmas tree in the central market square of Chania and which represents the consumerist frenzy that takes over the brains of the living-dead of this country and not only. As soon as it started burning, a group of store owners whose stores were not endangered, rushed to put out the fire with buckets and hoses, their petite-bourgeois not able to understand the nature of this act, resulting in only one part of the tree being burnt.

Oaxaca: Explosive attacks against Santander Bank and PRODECON in memory of anarchist compañero Sebastián Oversluij (Mexico)

Friday, December 16th, 2016

On December 11, 2013 anarchist compañero Sebastián Oversluij was shot dead by a security guard while attempting to rob a bank branch in Chile.

Today we decided to attack with explosive devices a Santander Bank branch and a PRODECON* office (belonging to the Secretary of Finance) in Oaxaca.

Remembering three years since this event not to make him a martyr nor to victimize his death but in the name of all illegal and clandestine actions that arise, have arisen and will arise within this war.

We emphasize that we (BAIBF / Bruno Filippi Brigade of Informal Action) have nothing to do with the wave of pseudo-left-wing anarchists who are at the mercy of and defend the interests of social and trade union organizations since we opt for the antagonistic and informal individual affinities and the total destruction of this prison-society and all its structures.

Athens: Attack against the office of security company SCS (Greece)

Friday, December 16th, 2016

In the morning of November 30 we attacked with hammers and fire the office of the security company S.C.S, located in the neighborhood of Zografou, Athens.

Private security companies plays a para-police role, making their profits by selling fear and promoting snitching and collaboration with the police.

For these reasons, and not only, it was not difficult for us to choose them as a target. Also, with our action we have shown that this company is useless and it’s services are just an illusion as they were not even able to protect themselves. Not one of their human or mechanical means of control can stop those who have the desire to attack the existent.

With this action we want to support the call against the G-20 summit that will take place in Hamburg on the 7th and 8th of July in 2017. The 7th and 8th of July as well as the preceding months can be a meeting point between comrades from around the world and simultaneously form a focal point for a campaign that contributes to the sharpening of tensions and create new points of rupture without limitations of time or place.

Berlin: Arson attack against a police station in memory of Alexis Grigoropoulos (Germany)

Thursday, December 8th, 2016

A Christmas present for the cops

In remembrance of Alexis who was murdered by the cops in Athens 8 years ago we have visited the friends of his murderers in the immediate vicinity of the Alexanderplatz and left 10 liters of petrol as a gift at the entrance door.
The solidarity of this action also applies to our prisoners who are sitting in jail because of the bank expropriation and are waiting to be sentenced by the executioners.
More solidarity greetings to Tuna, Balu, Cem and Ali.

We have noted with joy that in Leipzig last night some other people decided to attack the state and it’s lackeys.

Government institutions! See you in Hamburg!

For freedom!

Nemesis Project: Bomb threat against a military residential village in Santiago by Insurrectional Column ‘Wrath and Plot’ – FAI/FRI (Chile)

Tuesday, December 6th, 2016

“The big city also has a massive concentration of attack targets. (…) A few combatants can put large contingents of enemy forces in check by means of appropriate actions, the guerrilla must make it very clear that their attacks are directed in principle against all institutions of the enemy class, against all administrative positions, police and trustees but also against senior officials of these institutions, against judges, directors etc; Making it very clear that the war will bring them to the residential quarters of the rulers. (…) It uses surprise as a weapon and it the one that determines the time and location of operations.”

The Modern Capitalist State and the Strategy of Armed Struggle / RAF.

The ideas and practices antagonistic to capital and the state have been a headache for the bourgeois order since it penetrated strongly into Chilean territory centuries ago generating diverse reactions executed by the armed apparatuses of the state whether in dictatorship or democracy.

During the 60s the OPV took power while in the 1970s the various armed Marxist groups were formed to combat the established power of their respective epoch. While the OPP fought during Allende’s rule, the MIR, FPMR and Mapu Lautaro fought against the military dictatorship, becoming part of the war against domination and against the state.

During the democratic transition these organization felt the offensive blow of the state and dismantled, however some of their fighters decided not to surrender.

During the 90s resurgent new currents of autonomy and horizontality emerged from the reduced anti-capitalist expression and came to public attention, mainly via demonstrations and street violence. From anonymity, sabotage with explosive devices against different targets of state and capital began to resonate and it was in the following decade when these actions led to anarchy being placed under the watchful eye of police intelligence.

The living expression of this new stage of anti-capitalism began to solidify the new autonomous and libertarian subversion in Chilean territory.

In the minds of agents of power there was no possibility that in the midst of democracy that there were individuals willing to violate and disrupt social peace and capitalist production. Bombings, street fighting, long days of protest accompanied by strong attacks against the police, sabotage, destructive fire and propaganda of insurrectionist ideas via multiform methods began to be part of the new diverse and decentralized praxis without command nor leadership of the anti-capitalist expression, the praxis of the insurrectionary anarchist struggle.

Over time, the state began to restructure itself, armed to the teeth, making its vigilance constant and abundant and introducing its discourse in society under the protection of its ever-faithful friend: the press. Simultaneously, modifications made jail an effective punishment for those who stray from the imposed normality, physical and mental annihilation under tons of concrete, and if possible murdered, this being the ultimate for of punishment for the subversives.

Using these tactics the state classified the subversive struggle as delinquency. For those of us who make it our lives this has no relevance because the vindication of revolutionary honor will always contradict their ‘truths’. However we need to understand that this qualifier aims at the prevalence of the interests of the powerful. Therein lies the aim of the insurrectional attack, to strike and to disrupt the power until they are unable to control its disgusting order.

In this way under the prism of the ideas and events exposed we have returned generating a series of actions which have not ceased, and we continue. Today we claim as part of our project: Bullets sent to the parish priest of the Church of the Sacrament in March, robberies in universities for political means in July, the placing of an incendiary device on a Transantiago bus (without passengers) in August. All these actions were claimed by the Death Brigade, Illegalist Band Sebastían O. Seguel and the Hermina Concha Nuclei of Attack, allied to the FAI-FRI are now part of the Antagonistic Nuclei of the New Urban Guerrilla.

On December 2nd, we left a fake explosive device inside the West Military Village located at Av. Pajaritos, Central Station, Santiago, Chile.

Our device consisted of a fire extinguisher with a cell phone wired to it to resemble a remote control (see photo). As we have already noted, the non-placement of an actual explosive device was a political decision. Because although despicable being who deserve to die live in this place there are also workers here day and night who are not our targets.

For this same reason we used fake devices at the Plaza Alameda Mall and on a Transantiago bus (with passengers) in December 2015. It contrast to this was the explosive device we left at the Gendarmerie Reinsertion Center in February of this year which was composed of 1kg of ANFO that was strategically placed next to a gas cylinder.

Now, returning to the morning of December 2nd: This hostile action where the military and police live was designed to demoralize the historical enemy of the revolutionaries. An enemy we will fight with all of our weapons and our forces. From our position we warn those of power: today was a simulation but we have weapons and explosives and we will not hesitate to use them when we decide on the day, time and place to strike.

From now on we warn you: disgusting military, tread with care: Maria Riquelme (Block 4, Apt. 12), Iván Pinto (Block 11, Apt. 24), Luis Orellana (Block 11, Apt. 1123), Oscar Moya (Block 11, Apt. 1124), Sergio Martínez (Block 11, Apt. 1142). Your peace and quiet is over. Today we chose randomly, anybody could be here, with caution we observed them.

Finally it is necessary to send a combative greeting and a sign of complicity to the comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (in prison and on the street) in Greece. With this action we wish to humbly contribute to the initiative of the Nemesis Project. We hope that this proposal resonates with every revolutionary and is materialized via concrete actions throughout the world.

Neither do we forget our brother in prison. Marcelo Villarroel, Freddy Fuentevilla and Juan Aliste, nine years since the manhunt began against them. We do not forget how the extinct torturer Alendro Bernales gave his message between the lines via the press: “They walk with death”. Neither do we forget the extensive legal process they had to face in a case initiated by the Military Justice which was eventually transferred to Civil Justice by the Military Prosecutor Roberto Reveco. A transfer which resulted in no major change in the predominant desire of power for huge sentences. Even so our brothers remained staunch and immovable, dignified and ungovernable. To you our solidarity.

We also wish to send a symbolic internationalist greeting to the autonomous guerrilla women who give life to the Revolution in Rojava in the Middle East. Women who practise ideas antagonistic to capital, state and patriarchy in the midst of an ongoing military conflict against bastard police and soldiers opposed to freedom and autonomy.

Finally we remember our brother and partner Sebastián Oversluij Seguel, 3 years since his death in an attempted bank robbery on December 11th, 2013 in the commune of Pudahuel, Santiago, Chile. Murdered by the hands of the vigilante William Vera, a military man with a lengthy resume, an assassin of capital with experience in military conflicts overseas.

For all this and more: Attack the Military Corps!
Hostility is fully justified!
War on the enemy in your territory!
Everything continues..We will be back!

Attack against the ‘Messe Hamburg’, venue for the OSCE and G20 summits (Germany)

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Also see: Excavator burns in Berlin – against G20-Summit.

Today at 23:00 we placed burning tires at the south entrance of the venue for the OSCE and G20 summits, the ‘Messe Hamburg’. The glass facade on Karolinenstraße was subject to intensive attack with hammers, paint and stones. We decided on this demolition initiative since we reject the summits which are summits for a world that we reject just as much as the planned meetings.

The summits are a symbol of the never-ending cycle of production and consumption for this commodity society which excludes people from social life and includes others. We want to destroy this cycle as well as the summits.

The exhibition halls are practically in the living room of the Schanzen and Karolinen district as the state chairperson of the Greens, Gallina stated and for a long time have been a wrecking ball over the heads of the residents. In the 1950s and 60s the city of Hamburg bought up large areas and many buildings in the Karolinen district and issued a competition which was a premise for the total destruction of the Karos for an expansion of the venue for the ‘Justice Forum’. Along the Feldstraße the construction of a gigantic sports and multi-purpose hall was planned for a long time. When the Hamburg senate gradually moved away from demolition plans in the 1970s, Messe AG tried to continue the demolition and finally the ‘Messe Hamburg’ got new spaces and halls on the edge of the Karolinen district. The new building was flanked by hotel buildings in the Schanzen Park, Schröderstiftstraße and Feldstraße. (more…)

Berlin: Attack against arms company Thales (Germany)

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

It is getting warmer, concerning the preparations for a hot July against the G20-Summit. In the night from 11th to 12th November property of the Thales Company was destroyed.

Thales is one of the eleven biggest armaments companies with an annual sales of 14 billion Euros and above this part of some technology programs, like the satellite range Galileo.

Initially conceived only for civil use, like smartphones, navigation systems, etc. decided the European Parliament in July 2008, that this technic should be available to the European Security- and Defense Politics (ESVP). Thales developed the project „Watchkeeper“, too. On commission for the British Forces an unmanned drone (Thales Watchkeeper WK450) was produced. They got ready in 2012 and flew until 2014 some 140 times over Afghanistan and were consistently upgraded in 2016. Since this year it is possible to load the drone with a 2-kg-warhead and laser- and GPS-control. At last the technology from Thales can kill directly. (more…)

Attack against Deutsche Telekom in Berlin (Germany)

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Eight month before the G20 – Summit in Hamburg, clandestine connections carry out their attacks against the current order in whole Europe every night. Mostly without knowing each other, our fires find similar targets in the hotspots of anarchist subversion, which are placed over the state-owned construct of the European Fortress. Often in a local frame of reference and too rare with the perspective of an international sabotage against the instruments of dominion.

So is the net of people, aggressive and poised to attack, always on the search for opportunities to direct the attacks to a common focus. We should have more courage to arrange to meet us, to travel in order to find places were we get in exchange of ideas and multiply our related experiences. But we want to conduct actions as well in the places where we live, which build relations above the local and specific context, which ignore temporary borders and get incalculable with it. (more…)

Anarchist arson of council vehicle in South Shields, Tyneside (UK)

Friday, November 18th, 2016

An anonymous person (anarchist) set fire to a council vehicle in Pine Avenue, South Shields (Tyneside) in the early hours of Wednesday 9th November 2016. There was no media coverage at all of this fire.

This van was set alight as a direct attack against the council, local authority and councilors to cause disruption and cost money. The normal working class person in the U.K. is getting poorer each month and finding it harder to survive, meanwhile the rich fat cat councilors get richer by means of parking tickets, fines for dropping litter, putting a bin out at the wrong time and other so called offences.

Santiago: Incendiary attack against a Transantiago bus by Herminia Concha Nucleus of Attack (Chile)

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

English translation via InsurrectionNews. Full pictures for the schematics of the fuse and incendiary device on ContraInfo.

To the anarchists of praxis
To the prisoners and fugitives of the social war

On the night of August 18 we activated an incendiary device during the journey of the 110 Transantiago bus in the neighborhood of Maipú. We do not whether our handcrafted ingenuity was a success or not as the action was silenced by the media.

We carried out this action in accordance with our ideas, principles and convictions. We seek to attack the service that transports thousands of people that reproduce the gears of the capitalist system. This service is one more cog, one that is destroying the earth and is complicit in the death of human and animal comrades. Our action damages the machinery of the social order, the law, its guardians, civilization and power.

Against all odds, when times are tough, we do not immobilize ourselves and continue to attack. We are not indifferent to the political prisoners, nor to the solidarity campaigns that arise for them, despite the various onslaughts of power. For our prisoners, fugitives and fallen we continue unabated. (more…)
