Eschborn, Frankfurt: Arson attack against power and communication lines (Germany)

Monday, March 23rd, 2015

The axis of the rabble has struck. We set fire with the intention of considerably impairing the power supply and the grid connection of the large data centres of Deutsche Bank, Commerzbank, Deutsche Börse [that operates the Frankfurt Stock Exchange], and many others in Eschborn.

On March 16th, 2015, at 5am, the ground cables of an electricity pylon and three distribution boxes of Vodafone went up in flames on the outskirts of Eschborn near the A66 highway.

The side of the State tried to gag the disruption of the capitalist daily life by imposing a news blackout on Monday; however, telecommunication and power supply failures, as well as a large contingent of firefighters deployed in the early morning hours in Frankfurt did not go unnoticed.

Last April 2012 was the first camping held in Tanay Rizal, Philippines. It was attended by various collectives and individuals totaling around 40 people who participated the various activities and discussions in the camp.

After series of activities in 2012, the LAN decided to expand its activities on ecological issues due to concrete manifestation of the crisis impacting the archipelago.

December wave of Letter-bombs by Free Eat & Billy Cell FAI/IRF (Germany, Italy, France)

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

7/12/11 – Frankfurt, Germany : CEO Josef Ackermann is the intended target of a fully operational explosive parcel which is mailed to Deutsche Bank headquarters. Bank security staff identify the device during x-ray screening, and it is later neutralised by police. A claim of responsibility is recovered from the device, which is published in the corporate press.

9/12/11 – Rome, Italy : Chief Director Marco Cuccagna of Italy’s tax collection office, Equitalia, receives a letter-bomb which explodes after he opens it, causing damage to his hands, blowing off part of his finger and almost blinding him after his glass desk shatters in the explosion.

12/12/11 – Paris, France : The Greek embassy in Paris is the target of a third explosive device which is identified and neutralised.

Amidst the wave, mainstream media report that envelopes containing bullets and threatening letters are mailed to Italian Justice Minister Paola Severino and Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno. An additional parcel of vengeance was received by Equitalia on the 15th December, but was identified and neutralised. A note inside the latest package said “don’t kill yourself, rebel: death to usurers!”


Here is a translation of the claim of responsibility that accompanied the package bomb to the central headquarters of Deutsche Bank in Frankfurt:

FREEDOM AND HAPPINESS FOR OUR BROTHER GABRIEL POMBO DA SILVA. DEATH TO THE BANKS THAT STRANGLE THE PEOPLE.

Position Paper by Coastal Inhabitants of Kulon Progo (Indonesia)

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Received from the PPLP-KP (Coastal Farmers Association of Kulon Progo). This is their release of a position paper in regard to the plan to mine iron from the coastal sands of Kulon Progo, Indonesia.

there is no peace without justice
and there is no justice without conscience

PPLP KP

“Since 2006, we, the coastal inhabitants of Kulon Progo Regency, have struggled to defend our Human Rights (as guaranteed by UU [Undang-Undang = regulation] No 39 of 1999), Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (as guaranteed by UU No 11 of 2005), and Right to Land (as guaranteed by UU no 5 of 1960). The presence of these rights and the prospect that they will continue into the future are under threat, due to the policies of the Kulon Progo Regency Government to mine iron sands and build a steel factory in an area which is settled by, and provides a livelihood for, its inhabitants. Just as it was known that it would, this mine has triggered a conflict between the people and the government, with no end in sight.”

* “The planned staged development of the Jogjakarta Iron Project (“Iron Project”) continued to take shape with the Board approving the commencement of commercial trials of iron concentrate production in the first half of 2011.
