Four VIP van (Tourist small taxis buses) arsons took place in the early hours of Wednesday in Koukaki, near Philopappou Hill.
We carried out this attack as retaliation and a sign of solidarity with the people who were beaten and arrested by the forces of State repression during the reoccupation of the squats in Koukaki as well in solidarity with those arrested after the buildings were recaptured.
The target was selected near the squats firstly to remind to the cops that no matter how hard they try they can’t protect neighbourhoods from black-hooded people and secondly because these vehicles exist only to serve tourists and the tourism industry.
“There is a right to the brick.
There is a right on the stick.
There is a right to Molotovs in Exarchia, or anywhere.
There is a right to car arson.
There is a right to armed struggle.
There is a right to revolt and liberation from slavery.“
Chrysochoidis (Minister of Citizen Protection of Greece)

Thessaloniki, Greece: Turkish Diplomatic Vehicle Torched by Revolutionary Solidarity Commando Haukur Hilmarsson

The genocide in Syrian territory since the invasion of the fascist Turkish state, with the agreement and complicity of the international community, continues. Day by day hundreds of civilians find themselves on the agonizing receiving end of the bombings and attacks carried out Erdogan’s fascist army and ISIS’s reemerging Islamist terrorism. For 2.5 months the revolutionary forces of rebel militias intensify defensive confrontation with every means against the imperialist international monopolies, which attempt to occupy the Syrian territories, displacing thousands of civilians with their military operations.
The NATO summit in London at the beginning of December ended with a pervasive sense of unity and an exchange of guarantees between the member states, despite superficial disagreements over the fascist Turkish state’s invasion of Syria. The constant arrests and interrogations of militants in various states on suspicion of supporting the Kurdish rebels are proof of this. The latest anti-terrorist operation in the UK against the family environment of a YPG volunteer has led to his father being arrested on charges of supporting a terrorist organization.
The fascist Turkish state builds rivalry in the areas of security and energy in the eastern Mediterranean as it chooses to seal the alliance with Libya on the same day as the slaughterer of the Palestinians, Netanyahu is in Athens for the trilateral agreement between Greece, Cyprus and Israel for the EastMed pipeline. They also called for NATO’s support, demanding that alliance members officially declare the YPG and the YPJ as terrorist organizations. A prime example is Erdogan’s message to the Greek government amid transnational shocks and destabilization in relations between the two states on the basis of the disputed agreement with Libya: power relations and instability can change for the benefit of the Greek state with the precondition that the YPG/YPJ and DHKP-C Kurdish and Turkish fighters are extradited as terrorists.

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.
Towards the total destruction of police and their bloody supporters.

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.

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…)

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.

On the night of October 21st , a SUV car with a diplomatic plaque was burned, on rue Dumont d’Urville, behind the Greek embassy in Paris.
With this small action, we want to send a sign of solidarity to the anarchists in Greece, who fight against the State and Capital (legal and illegal) and to defend the occupied spaces.
For those who live and defend spaces of freedom.
For those who carry attacks against authority.
A thought also to the anarchists imprisoned there, in particular the two comrades imprisoned for a robbery in Thessaloniki or the members of the CCF [Conspiracy of Cells of Fire] still in jail.
Freedom for all!
Solidarity is the attack.

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…)

Many people talk about the climate, they talk about the weather. Those who want to seem radical criticize the media icons that criticize those who govern.
Many people talk about arriving later this month. There are also those who rediscover the virtues of the people. And who are looking forward to weekly appointments with this famous “people”.
Many people talk.
We thought that the urgency, today as always, is to act. Act in small groups or alone, following our ideas and not the mood of the masses. The urgency of the attack.
Identify the enemy: like yesterday and like tomorrow, states, capital and every authority.
On the night of last Tuesday [September 17, 2019] we set fire to a car with a diplomatic plate and a big Porsche of a rich man, on avenue Marcel Proust.
We wanted to send a wink to the Italian anarchists convicted for the “Scripta Manent” operation; it has been three years since you were locked up. We don’t forget you!
A thought also for the three Germans arrested on a southern highway during the G7.
A thought for the Hamburg comrades.

Quema de dos vehículos carsharing de “E-move” y “Car to Go”: fuego a la ciudad del Capital. Fuego al Madrid de Ahora Madrid (España)
Friday, March 8th, 2019
En el marco de la semana de “Agitación y propaganda contra la gentrificación y la especulación capitalista y en defensa de la okupación” dos vehículos de las empresas “E-Move” y “Car to Go” fuegon incendiados, en los barrios de Arganzuela y Prosperidad.
Nos encontramos en la consolidación de la última reinvención democrática y de las ilusiones renovadas en las caducas estructuras del Estado y el parlamentarismo. La irrupción en el panorama político de la “nueva política” ha servido al sistema para renovar sus estructuras de dominio y dotarles de un nuevo aire de legitimidad, desgastada tras los años de la crisis. A medida que la vía electoral cobraba fuerza, la agitación en las calles disminuía. Como siempre.
Paralelamente, nos hemos encontrado con la infiltración y convivencia dentro de los llamados “movimientos sociales” de políticos y lidercillos que instrumentalizaban cualquier conato de lucha entre las muchas marcas blancas de Podemos a nivel municipal, en un reparto de la tarta del Poder municipal. Es cada vez más habitual ver a personajes como Errejón en las protestas contra los CIES, parlamentarios en desahucios como el de la calle Argumosa o observar como pululan concejales y otros tipos de políticos por algunos centros sociales okupados o no okupados, en tal o cual asamblea… (more…)

Diciembre Negro significa memoria y acción y, como toda iniciativa de ataque directo, cobra vida y continuidad cuando hay voluntades que pasan de las palabras a los hechos para romper con la normalidad de la rutina social capitalista y con la comodidad de la vida ciudadana.
Siempre dispuestxs a la acción, nos liberamos de la fiebre consumista y de las pautas de comportamiento impuestas por el orden social y sus tradiciones de fin de año, así, con planificación, astucia y ciertas precauciones el ataque anarquista no se detiene.
Por eso la madrugada del 28 de diciembre prendimos fuego a un camión en la ciudad de Santiago, en una comuna de la llamada “clase media”. El hecho fue reportado por la prensa y ahora les confirmamos: no fue un cortocircuito, fue un incendio intencional forjado por manos anárquicas en medio de la noche entre las calles de su asquerosa ciudad.
Incendiar un camión es atacar las mega-máquinas y estructuras que contribuyen a la devastación de la Tierra, es prender fuego a la idea de progreso y civilización, es nuestra contribución a la agitación contra el proyecto IIRSA-COSIPLAN y la construcción de miles de kilómetros de carreteras que destruyen eco-sistemas para facilitar el tránsito de camiones llenos de mercancías y acelerar el avance de la urbe que contamina nuestra vida.

«You are waiting for the revolution? Let it be! My own began a long time ago! When you are ready (god, what an endless wait!) I won’t mind going with you for a while. But when you stop, I shall continue on my way toward the great and sublime conquest of the nothing!
Any society that you build will have its limits. And outside the limits of any society, unruly and heroic tramps will wander with their wild and virgin thought — those who cannot live without planning ever new and dreadful outbursts of rebellion! I shall be among them!»
Pretty words, but there must be more than just words.
I don’t want to run behind the masses. They say that this time it’s the big one, that the insurrection has arrived…mine arrived a long time ago and it’s an individual insurrection.
During the early hours of December 11th, I set fire to six cars belonging to the Paris City Council on Rue Corvisart (in the 13th arrondissement). It was not the City Council that was targeted, any more than it was Macron or any other power. All power must be destroyed.
So we do not forget the comrades who have left us. For Mikhail, Zak, Sebastian, Mauricio and all the others.
For those who are in prison. A thought in particular for Krème and the Scripta Manent defendants in Italy.
For a Black December!

It seems that this Autumn, the fashion is neon yellow. It seems to be doing pretty
well with blue-white-red. It seems that it is absolutely necessary to be there, to
participate, to contribute; because there are people in the street, without leaders
and breaking things. It seems that if we don’t go there then we must stay in front
of the internet.
We don’t care.
The barricades on the Champs-Élysées don’t hide the confusion. The breakage cannot replace anti-authoritarian ideas. We were on the streets in 2016, and we will be there again, but not to defend the old world and its cars.
And we think that many other possibilities exist, you just have to look for them.
In the early morning of November 27th, a car belonging to the technical service of
the Police Prefecture was torched in front of the police station on Camille
Desmoulins street (the same one that lost their windows four years ago). The Enedis car parked opposite that station was torched too. Enedis, along with its subsidiary Gepsa, is making money from prisons. For example, they manage the jail in Meaux where Kréme is imprisoned (we send you a big hug comrade!).
Solidarity also with imprisoned anarchists around the world; those of Operation
Scripta Manet in Italy, the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire in Greece and the comrades
recently arrested in Argentina.
Gasoline price increases? We will use fire starters.

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…)

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…)
