Every tool in the toolbox! Capitalist society is held up by two fundamental pillars: repression and social control. This time we have wanted to hit a part of the system of social control via communication antennas. Between Saturday night and Sunday morning (April 2-3), led by the stars, we approached two antennas in the road between Iruña and Irurtzun (Nafarroa) and with the help of pliers we opened a breach inside wire mesh that surrounds the antennas. With wooden-handled mallets we destroyed the electricity meters inside both antennae and we broke the two AC units inside each, as well. With axes we cut the cables to the antennas’ electrical device as well as wires to the distribution substation that power the antennas.
This time we demand and make this action public in part to launch an irrintzi solidarity campaign with our imprisoned compañeros who are on hunger strike in the murderous and torturous state jails: José Adrián Poblete Darre, Xavier Corporales Barruecos, and Antonio Chavero Mejías. We do this for you.
In solidarity with the compañerxs Monica and Francisco who have recently been charged in the first degree to 12 years (a sentence is but an opinion). Strength and courage.
[This was done] in protest of the violations which are penetrating the Earth and nature, such as the TAV and the other infrastructures which serve only for the interests of the same people as always. Ama lurra defenda dezagun! [Euskara language.]
PS. It’s a shame that the fire we had hoped to gift in the end did not happen…. Do not fret, as we will take care of that next time. estatuari gerra, gerra beti!

Cambridge: Solidarity Graffiti with Eneko Gogeaskoetxea, Basque Anti-Imperialist Fighter of ETA (UK)
Friday, April 13th, 2012
325 receives and transmits:
We are autonomous individuals in Cambridge who wish to react to the state-seizure and international extradition of a Cambridge resident, Eneko Gogeaskoetxea Arronategui, who is accused of being an anti-imperialist fighter of Basque independence group ETA.
E. Gogeaskoetxea was arrested in July (’11) and now faces extradition to Spain where he faces 8 arrest warrants alleging a series of actions, such as attacks on a police station and an airport, as well as plotting to kill the Spanish King Juan Carlos II in 1997. When the state takes hostages of the social/revolutionary struggle, the words ‘innocent’ and ‘guilty’ do not mean anything to us.
We are anarchists and while we criticize through words and action political leftism and militaristic, national-focused revolutionary organisation, we stand alongside other oppressed people in asymmetric war with our enemy the state and the elite classes. The British authorities are planning on handing over E. Gogeaskoetxea to the Spanish state – the same Spanish state that has locked up and murdered many Basque fighters, anarchists, anti-fascists, autonomous and subversive elements.
In the isolation/torture cells of Spanish democratic-fascism, as all over Europe and all the worlds states, they intend to disappear and silence revolutionary consciousness by trying to disappear and silence those in struggle. We affirm that violent struggle against the class oppressors is necessary, whether in the territories occupied by UK PLC or the Spanish state, and will not let the police snatch a man from the street, accused of being an enemy of the state and disappear them into democracy’s prisons.
For international anti-capitalist struggle.
Innocent or guilty – Solidarity with Eneko Gogeaskoetxea!
Against state extradition and counter-insurgency – The State is the Terrorist!
