Argentina: Without Fear & With Perseverance Let’s Extend the Offensive! Information About the Recent Repressive Blow of the Argentine State
Wednesday, November 21st, 2018
On November 14th, two specific events took place in the city of Buenos Aires, with media coverage and a rapid police / judicial response.
During the afternoon, in the Recoleta cemetry, at the mausoleum dedicated to Colonel Ramon Falcon (assassinated by comrade Simón Radowitzky) – a bomb explodes leaving the comrade Anahi Salcedo wounded, she is transferred to Fernandez hospital and detained with wounds to her face and skull as well as the loss of three fingers on one of her hands. She is currently in an induced coma. At the same place, comrade Hugo Rodriguez was arrested.
Hours later, outside the home of Judge Bonadio (famous for his hard line, his indelible past with the youth of the iron guard- a Peronist fascist group, and his current practice and discourse against anti-conservatism and repression of dissenting sectors and individuals opposed to the current order), comrade Marco Viola is arrested, accused of throwing an explosive device at the magistrate’s car.
At dawn, and throughout the following days, various spaces of the anarchic environment including squats, neighborhood centers and private homes are searched, resulting in the arrests of another 12 people.
The detainees were transferred to 2200 Cavia street where the anti-terrorist unit works, then to the police superintendence on Madariaga street, and then finally on Saturday morning they were taken to the Comodoro Py courts to testify in front of judge Ercollini and the public prosecutor Di Lello, following 72 hours of uncertainty, isolation and being subjected to who knows what by the eternally miserable wretches.
After this, two people are released, leaving a total of 10 imprisoned comrades charged with illegal association, public intimidation and possession of explosive material. The two actions unified under the same cause.
At the moment it is all prudential what can be transmitted, we know that other places are under surveillance, as well as specific people, since the government itself have confirmed the seizure of more than 100 private phones belonging to activists, and they have reopened investigations into direct actions that were carried out in the city from 2005 until the present (some claimed by anarchists and others not).
The call is clear and leaves no room for double interpretations.
Every gesture of concrete solidarity is welcome and desirable.
Do not leave the comrades kidnapped by the Argentine State alone, without fear and with perseverance extend the offensive.
ANARCHIST NIHILIST ANTI-AUTHORITARIAN COMRADES WE ARE HERE AND WE ARE STRONG
WITHOUT FEAR AND WITH MORE ANGER THAN EVER
FREEDOM FOR THE ANARCHIST PRISONERS
Saturday, November 17th, 2018
Wednesday, November 14th, in Buenos Aires, almost simultaneously, two locations were attacked with bombs. The first attack, at the Recoleta cemetery, failed unfortunately. The bomb exploded in the hands of one of the two people carrying out the action. It was aimed at the tomb of Ramón Falcón, a police chief who was
responsible for the murder of 11 protesters on May 1st, 1909, and who was assassinated several months later by the anarchist Simón Radowitzky. The comrade who led the attack is in a serious condition in hospital and the comrade who accompanied her was arrested.
A few hours later, a bomb was thrown at the house of Federal Judge Claudio Bonadi. The comrade who led the attack was quickly arrested as well.
On the night of Wednesday to Thursday, 10 people were arrested in a Buenos Aires squat.
As a reminder, the G20 in Buenos Aires begins in 2 weeks.

Madrid, Spanish State: Sabotage Within the Framework of the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners
Thursday, September 27th, 2018
During the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners more than a dozen ATMs in different neighborhoods of Madrid were sabotaged. The tools for these types of sabotage and simple and easy: hammers and sprays.
We understand solidarity as a continuity of the struggle that has led to our compañerxs being held in the prisons of the State. Anarchist solidarity is much more than just a written word or doing assistance work with the prisoners. This
solidarity is materialized via attacks against the structures of capitalism and State, and seeks to deepen the conflict through direct action.
Down with the walls of the prisons. Long live anarchy.
For the compañerxs hit by Operation Scripta Manent!
For the compañerxs facing repression following the Hamburg G20 summit!
For the Indonesian anarchists prosecuted after May 1st!
For Lisa and all the anarchist prisoners!

With this we take responsibility for the incendiary device we placed in front of the building of the German Society for Foreign Politics (DGAP) in Drake-/Rauchstraße (Tiergarten) in the night of 21.8.18.
13 litres of a petrol-oil-mixture shall be the beginning of putting an end to the undisturbed and fearless existence of the DGAP as a political advisor of the German war society.
Since the beginning of this year increased attacks against the war industry, their profiteers and financiers take and took place over all the German controlled territory. We join these attacks and let the fire speak from our side. War starts here! War on the war!
War starts here, in the halls of politics. War starts everywhere, where people throw away their empathy, to profit from the globalized misery. In the war-industry, the thinktanks of science, in the faceless administration of bureaucracy, in the form of uniformed slaves, who receive and obey orders in rank and file. War starts between human beings, when concurrence and aspiration to power reigns over solidarity and the free development of the individual.
German Security – Profit through war
Through the choice of the DGAP as the target of our incendiary device we declare the ideological architects of German-European hegemonic politics, the scientists and forerunners of a security paradigm which works with as well as alongside of warmongers and in this way are our enemies. What they declare about security is not ours. Their foreign policy is a policy of order. And their order needs tanks against uprisings and frigates against inflatable dinghies, it builds fences against the suppressed and works continuously to extend their ongoing misery. (more…)

Berlin – Enemy supply lines attacked
We burned a truck of DB Schenker in the night to August 8th in Berlin-Wedding. When Erdogan arrives in Berlin on September 28. / 29., he will find our hostility here. Who rolls out the red carpet for the fascist Erdogan – X Day – is supposed to feel the ashes of the burning city in the nose.
Already since the year 2000, the ESG Elektronicsystem- and Logistics company runs together with its partner Schenker Germany AG (DB Schenker) the headquarters of logistics – called ZEBEL – of the German Armed Forces (Bundeswehr) in Kassel. From this hub with 17.000 square metres occurs the supply of civil partner companies and military repair workshops, which maintain Bundeswehr systems and vehicles. The transport of war material has most priority for DB Schenker. With it, the subsidiary company of Deutsche Bahn is responsible for the logistics and supply with NATO equipment to the Turkish Army in their war against the Kurdish areas. (more…)

First appeared as „Ein Gespräch mit einigen Militanten über die informelle Koordinierung im Vorfeld der G20“ in Rauchzeichen, a magazine published by Autonomous Groups, Fall 2017 and now first published in English on Anarhija. This is late, but not too late. We can use this conversation to prepare something for the coming black bloc attack next year in Biarritz/France, where the G7 summit will be end of Summer 2019.
AG: At the end of the summer of 2016, several communiques propose an informal coordination of radical groups in the run-up to the G20 summit in Hamburg. You took part in it. What interventions were you aiming for and which perspectives did it entail for you?
[Chuzpe]: “On the occasion of several big events like the G8 in Heiligendamm in 2007 or around the Destroika prior to the inauguration of the European Central Bank in Frankfurt in 2015, there have been similar proposals and radical campaigns. It is not a very new idea. Starting from an anarchist analysis, I see the necessity of a permanent conflictuality and I’m sceptical towards this staging of a political play where everyone has its role. Focusing on such an event leads often to the side-lining of everyday struggles. But at the same time, I see the possibility of a tension opening up in such moments, in which the scope of our interventions can amplify. (more…)

16.07.18: Last night a car belonging to the company Dräger was torched on Hänsel street in Baumschulenweg. Among other things, this corporation that is listed on the stock exchange, manufactures gas masks for police and military use.
In 2010, Dräger locations in Berlin and Cologne were attacked with paint:
“We hit Dräger because it is one of the biggest supporters of the international torture and murder scene, and in addition to sponsoring the police congrees, Dräger is also a leading international security and medical technology company”.
From the Dräger annual report:
“Demand for our products increased in 2017, especially in Poland, Great Britain, Austria and Germany, as well as in Romania, Russia and Turkey…The increased demand for security products in particular contributed to the positive development of an increase in orders for medical technology too”.
Freedom For All G20 Prisoners!
Wednesday, July 11th, 2018
When you set out at night with the intention of burning or putting something out of action, interrupting the paralysis inherent in everyday life, you never know exactly what you will find once you are on the street. Which is how it was one night in mid-June when we came across a Diplomatic Corp car and one belonging to ENJOY* parked side by side next to the footpath. If until then, they had been united together in the same shitty existence in service of devastation, power and domination, we could not help but see their willingness to share the same demise together. And so, just like it was with some excavators in France not long ago, we took note of their will by enjoying the sight of the flames that enveloped them.
We hope that despite the high temperatures of recent days that the heat of this fire may bring a smile to all the comrades locked up in prisons, subjected to judicial controls or under surveillance…
To the Argentine comrade Diego Parodi… Strength, hold on!
To those facing investigation for the G20 in Hamburg.
For the prisoners and the accused of Operation Scripta Manent.
For Giova, Ghespe and Paska.

06.07.18: Last night we destroyed 6 Deutsche Bahn (German Railways) vehicles near Frankfurt West railway station. We are opposed to German support for the war of aggression by the Turkish government in Northern Syria as well as the ongoing raids and arrests of left-wing activists.
We set fire to six Deutsche Bahn vehicles used for making repairs. We deliberately carried out our action in a way that ensured there was no danger to anybody. Deutsche Bahn is a leading logistics partner of NATO. Dying and killing in the name of our ‘democracies’ is not an option for us. We will continue to side with the revolutionary forces in Syria and elsewhere.
Here in Germany there are enough reasons too, we do not even know where to start with this police state: the complete erosion of what once referred to itself as a constitutional state. Mass public manhunts. The raids against German technology associations because they have a donation account for a legal US email provider and for using an email address that was used to promote protests against the AFD! (Alternative for Deutschland, right-wing populist party)* Or the banning of Linksunten Indymedia. Or the arrests in the Rhine-Main area for alleged participation in the G20 protests. Or the searches in France, because those affected allegedly raised their arms at the G20. What a complete misunderstanding of every situation in the Schanze.**
Network of Revolutionary Cells: ‘Call to Fight: Sabotage the activities of those bastards!’ (Czech Republic)
Sunday, November 19th, 2017
We see that the repressive campaign on the anarchist movement does not cease. Examples are enough: The operation Fénix case in the Czech Republic, the case of the Warsaw Three, charges of bank robbery in Aachen, courts with rebels against the G20 summit in Hamburg and other cases.
Cops, judges, prosecutors, mass-media. They are haunted, imprisoned, robbed, manipulated. This is a challenge to all Revolutionary cells and other groups and individuals. Do sabotages the activities of those bastards. Turn them into terrain, technology and structures. Organize resistance. Support the fugitive and their loved ones.
What destroys us will stop by fighting.
The goal is clear = Freedom, justice, anarcho-communism.
