The following text is intended to be the continuation of a dialogue on the tools of anarchist insurgency and the ways of organizing ourselves; a dialogue that was initiated at an international anarchist encounter somewhere in the countryside of France and now continues from a prison cell in Greece.
The opinions expressed here are my own personal views, so it should be clear that they promote a particular position on the issue. However it is not desired to have one position prevail over all the others; what matters is how the various different, yet complementary, points of view communicate and interact with each other. In the face of an enemy that’s very flexible as regards the use and multitude of means and forms of attack, the diversity of considerations and practices on the part of anarchists is self-evident. Whichever different perspectives cannot be promoted dogmatically but rather based on a rationale of multifaceted attack.
First we need to talk about the very concept of organization, a word quite misunderstood in anarchist circles.
We face an enemy with complex and complicated functions. One of the main characteristics that make the enemy powerful is the constant evolution and organization of the social paranoia we are experiencing today: a technological, military, architectural, civil, industrial, economic, scientific organization. Every aspect of this world is being organized, constantly correcting its imperfections through an intelligent system which has a great number of servants. (more…)

‘We retransmit this message sent to us from visitors… On retransmet ce message qui nous a été envoyé par des lecteurs-rices…’
So the other night on September 21, we’ve set fire to a railroad telecomm cable linking Brigham to Sherbrooke (Qc) to the US, thinking about the Algonquins people recently evicted from a resistance camp and detained in Gatineau. We took the time to select a railway bridge in the middle of nowhere near Waterloo, so we’d not have to dig to get to the cables or attract too much attention. Some fuel was dropped through an opening in the steel casing of the cables, then set on fire. Nothing fancy. It worked better than we’d guessed, as a few seconds later it already smelled of burning rubber a few meters away. The enclosed air in the conduit apparently turned the fire into something like a blow torch. Kind of an easy game to be reproduced elsewhere by others, we told ourselves… so that’s a reason to let others know.
Of course it didn’t cause the whole techno-industrial system to collapse! Society is still pretty much functional today. But you gotta start attacking it somewhere. Though it did feel as if an important nerve deep below society had been severed. And this felt good getting off our asses in the middle of the night for this. (more…)

9-12-2009 : RECENT DAYS HAVE SEEN INCREDIBLE JUNTA ORGIES IN GREECE
1 ) Cops with guns in the demonstrations.
2 ) Motorbike raids against protesters.
3 ) Cops following peaceful demonstrators in their tracks, wild and indiscriminate arrests.
4 ) Staged events such as the alleged assassination attempt against the rector of the Pritanea.
5 ) An enormous number of vague and even criminal charges and arresting people young and old.
6 ) Closing schools on the pretext of swine flu and the merciless beating of students who wanted to get to their schools.
7 ) Undercover cops kidnapping young protesters.
8 ) Higher level visible collaboration between Golden Dawn neo-nazis and the Police.
9 ) Secret meetings between Chrysohoides and the bosses of the TV channels and journalists to decide on how TV reporting was going to be done over these days.
10 ) Secret covert cameras and helicopters hovering constantly.
11 ) Zero tolerance makes a bitter orange and a stone against a bank a felony and a pretext for a police attack.
12 ) BAN on demonstrations and political gatherings in the conversion areas with massive police intimidation and outrageous controls/databasing.
13 ) Hacker attacks on indymedia, and sites of squatted places and TVXS (no borders TV), deleting comments.
14 ) Invasion and PREVENTIVE ARRESTS in many self-managed spaces.
15 ) In an Orwellian way anarchists and the rebels are referred to “fascists and Nazis!”.
16 ) Junta-like removal of asylum [in the universities].
AND HOW MUCH MORE!
Some of these things happened in isolation, and some only happened before under the junta in 1967-1974; others have never happened before, only now.
They never ever happened altogether in such a short space of time!
It seems that the crash which happened here and they are hiding, like the indomitable December, has the power to activate an emergency plan, a new ‘PLASTER CAST’ [repeating the pronuncement of the junta in 1967].
These moments are more than historical. We are witnessing for the first time since 1967 an attempt to impose a fascist police coup. If a parliamentary democracy are able to commit those crimes, the junta is something different and we have all have begun to understand that. The anarchist slogans in the streets are beginning to say bluntly: “DOWN THE JUNTA”.
A collusion of prosecutors, rectors, the upper classes, TV media and police, and still we do not know what other local and foreign forces have been mustered. You hear of missing people. The climate is heavy like under the junta.
THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO BE SILENT! THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO RELAX!
EVERYBODY IN THE STREETS – SQUATS EVERYWHERE!
PLEASE HELP TO SMASH DOWN THE GREEK JUNTA!
THE REGIME IS GOING THE WAY OF 1967!
