Letter from imprisoned anarchist comrade Gabriel Pombo da Silva (Germany)

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

Translated from Italian by act for freedom now/B.pd and j.

Italian translation from Parolearmate via Liberación Total

Anarchy will become synonymous with youth again. Once again it will kick out at the state of affairs that suffocates and crushes us; to resist and ALWAYS RESIST. To defend everything that is ours: freedom, the right to live, the right to everything that is indispensable both physically and spiritually.

And if we fall in the struggle, at least we’ll have the satisfaction of falling with our arms in hand.

And young (that not counted in years but the forever new ardour for resistance and attack) we will march towards the climax of Daring…

Anarchy!

Mario Vando

Comrades,

That the mass media are an integral part of the power apparatus is clearer on this occasion than ever before. At least, I wondered: when a hundred policemen storm the houses (and other spaces of the movement) of dozens of comrades and their families (on 13th June), how is it possible that at the same time the text of an ‘arrest warrant’ is already available on crook Silvio Berlusconi’s website, ready to be downloaded in PDF format? Especially if we consider that many of the accused had no possibility of knowing why they were being raided… (more…)

From anarchistnews:

18 July 2012

A Wells Fargo in Seattle had some of its windows broken last night as a small gesture of solidarity with Gabriel Pomba da Silva who is currently imprisoned in Germany and is facing renewed repression under Operation Ardire and with Doug Wright, one of the Cleveland 5, who recently began a hunger strike in Trumbull County Jail in Ohio. Lets not forget our comrades behind bars.

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

UPDATED WITH PRISONER ADDRESSES – FIRE TO THE STATE

From contra-info:

At 4 o’clock in the morning of June 13th, 2012, the carabiniers of the Special Operations Group (Raggruppamento Operativo Speciale, ROS) raided about forty homes, implementing the so-called ‘operation boldness’ (operazione ardire), a crackdown against people from the anarchist movement ordered by Manuela Comodi, public prosecutor of Perugia. According to the regime’s media, a total of 10 arrest warrants were issued—eight within Italy, one sent to Germany and one sent to Switzerland—while 24 suspects have been put under judicial investigation.

Conspiración Ácrata: Insurrectionary Anarchism in Mexico 2011 (PDF)

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

Updated link: New PDF zine from the editors of Conspiracion Acrata

Download from Zine Library (75 MB)

Compañer@s,

This publication is a compilation of news from the social war in Mexico during the year 2011. It took us a bit longer than we had hoped to complete it, but we feel it is still valid as a tool to communicate the actions and communique’s of Anarchist Action groups throughout Mexico to the English-speaking world.

Over the last few years, Anarchist direct action has been expanding throughout Mexico, both in quantity and in force. 2011 was in no way an exception, with every-day conflict with the State more and more evident. We make special note of “Black September” in which the social war waged by Anarchist Action groups was at its strongest. We hope that 2012 can be even stronger, not only in Mexico, but in every corner of the Globe. Through these communiques we can learn that we don’t need to be a “professional” to carry out attacks such as these, but that anyone is capable of attacking the State and its symbols of power.

Armed attack against CEO Roberto Adinolfi of Ansaldo Nucleare by Nucleo Olga FAI/FRI (Italy)

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

7 May 2012

Roberto Adinolfi, chief executive of Ansaldo Nucleare, a company linked to Italian defence conglomerate Finmeccanica, was shot in the street outside his house in Genoa in northern Italy. The bullet fractured his right knee but he is not in a serious condition. Finmeccanica controls Ansaldo Energia, the parent of Ansaldo Nucleare.

From the press via culmine, transl waronsociety:

OLGA CELL
INFORMAL ANARCHIST FEDERATION
INTERNATIONAL REVOLUTIONARY FRONT

“The government of science and of men of science cannot fail to be impotent, ridiculous, inhuman, cruel, oppressive, exploiting, maleficent. We may say of men of science, as such, what I have said of theologians and metaphysicians: they have neither sense nor heart for individual and living beings. In so far as they are men of science, they have to deal with and can take interest in nothing except generalities; that do the laws” Michael Bakunin

“In Japan we had over ten thousand dead, but not a single one to date due to nuclear accidents.” Roberto Adinolfi

“The environmental impact of nuclear energy is limited, considering that it does not produce CO2.”Roberto Adinolfi

THE MARK OF LIFE
Toward an imaginative way to destroy the existent

Ideas born from the fates, words accompanied by action carrying the mark of life. We have crippled Roberto Adinolfi, one of so many sorcerers of the atom with a candid spirit and a clean conscience. Roberto Adinolfi, nuclear engineer, administrator in charge of Ansaldo Nuclear; he has steered the Ansaldo-FIAT Consortium as its technical director, the consortium was created for the design of the Italian plants of Montalto di Castro and Trino Vercellese; in the past he has collaborated in the renovation of the Superphenix and has constructed the plants at Cernavoda in Romania. Before nuclear fell into disgrace, he was one of the most responsible together with Scajola for the return of nuclear energy to Italy. Member of the Unicen Commission for nuclear regulation and Vice President of the Italian Nuclear Society, part of the Governing Board of the European technology platform Sustainable Nuclear Energy.

Despite not liking violent-style rhetoric, it has been with a certain pleasantness that we armed ourselves, with pleasure that we loaded the magazine. Grasping the pistol, choosing and following the target, coordinating mind and hand were necessary steps, the logical consequence of an idea of justice, the risk of a choice and at the same time a confluence of enjoyable sensations. A little bit of justice, some lead in the leg to leave a lasting memory of what was to him a grey assassin. The target is a colorless scientist, a technician, a word sadly in fashion these days which behind a fictitious neutrality hides the long arm of capital, a director little inclined to appear in the spotlight, at this time a villainous responsible who has not only designed and renovated nuclear plants that have caused and are causing deaths around the world. Not only has he designed and collaborated in the creation of deadly plants, but he has also promoted nuclear plants and their exploitation with Ansaldo scheming with various governments; science, politics and economics in perfect union.

In past centuries science had promised a golden era, today it is being carried out toward self-destruction and more total slavery. The science-technology pairing has never been at the service of humanity, in its deepest essence it shows the imperative need to eliminate everything that is irrational, to dehumanize, to annihilate, to effectively destroy humanity. Capitalism with the help of science tends to annul conflicts, individuals today are free to realize their subjective selves only through the consumption and production of goods. The machine orders, the human performs. Capital orders, the consumer consumes. Science orders, technology kills. State and science, capitalism and technology are only one thing, one single Moloch.

Increasingly close accords between states, diffuse capitalism, scrupulous science, criminal technology are inexorably killing the planet. A few kilometers to the north in France, Switzerland, Romania the nuclear plants can no longer be counted. In the European Union alone there are one hundred ninety-seven, twelve within the Italian borders. Adinolfi knows well that it is only a matter of time before a European Fukushima reaps death on our continent. We are certain, engineer, that if even for just a second you felt jointly responsible for Damocles’ sword hanging over our heads. We have bad news for you: for each action there is an equal and opposite reaction, and your body shows it.

With this action of ours we return to you a tiny part of the suffering that you, man of science, are pouring into the world. Roberto Adinolfi, lead man of Ansaldo Nuclear, tentacle of Finmeccanica, monstrous artificial octopus. It is its tentacles that everywhere strangle, murder and oppress. Finmeccanica means Ansaldo Energy with its nuclear tombs. Finmeccanica means Ansaldo Breda with its high-speed trains that devastate the land. Finmeccanica means Selex Sistemi Integrati, Dirstechnical Service, Inc. Elsac Datamat with its equipping of the racist US police for the control of the Mexican border, with its delirious design of electronic walls at the Libyan border against migrants, and its sophisticated electronic supplies to the Chilean police. Finmeccanica means Avio Alenia, Galileo and Selex with their deadly F35 fighter bombers, and the terrible aerial drones without pilots. Finmeccanica means interforce range from Salto to Quirra in Sardegna. Finmeccanica means bio- and nano-technology. Finmeccanica means death and suffering, new frontiers of Italian capitalism.

Human beings are made of flesh and dreams. Our dream is that of a humanity free from every form of slavery, that grows in harmony with nature. A dream that we make live in the moment in which we fight to realize it. Our dream has for us a name, “anarchy,” and we are ready to gamble everything in order to realize it. We are not alone in this adventure, in the whole world a new anarchy is blossoming opposite of an ideological and cynical anarch-ism, an anarch-ism empty of any breath of life, which only finds its realization in theory and attendance at assemblies and manifestations, the whole cowardice of a citizenism that stinks of death. A new anarchy is rising from the ruins of this anarch-ism, thousands and thousands of cells that speak among each other through thousands and thousands of actions.

Damiano Bolano, Giorgos Nikolopoulos, Panayiotis Argyrou, Gerasimos Tsakalos, Michalis Nikolopoulos, Olga Ikonomidou, Christos Tsakalos, Haris Hatzimichelakis, the imprisoned members cell of the CCF/FAI are the brothers and sisters who gave their determination and courage to fight, their consistency and projectuality have made us strong. Camenish, Pombo da Silva, Eat and Billy, Tortuga, Silvia, Costa, Billy and so many other prisoners in the prisons around the world, Russia, Mexico, Chile, Indonesia, Switzerland, the United States, were the ones who taught us not to fear prison. De Blasi, Pinones, Di Napoli, Cinieri, Morales, Sole, Baleno and so many killed by state repression, were the ones who taught us not to fear death. It was the brothers and sisters and those who we do not know of the Italian FAI/IRF who have proceeded to give a concrete informal organizational perspective. With their determination, constancy and persistence, in spite of the general pessimism, against a critique — a critique always full of envy, against a realism without hope, against everyone and everything,  they have succeeded in keeping the flame of the new anarchism alive. A flame becoming bright like the sun when the sisters and brothers of the CCF have brought their contribution of courage-action-organization.

If we were realists we would not have armed our hands. If we were realists we would not take on such risks, we would live our existence producing and consuming, maybe being indignant. We are the crazy lovers of freedom and we will never renounce the revolution and the complete destruction of the state and its violence. In our anarchist and nihilist revolt, the hope of a future without borders, wars, social classes, economy, exploited and exploiter. The possibility of realizing this dream is for us like a gleam of light in the darkness. However dim this gleam may be, it is always worth reaching for, cost what it may, the quality of our life will be enriched.

To you anarchists who accuse us of being unrealistic, adventurist, suicidal, provocative, martyrs, we say that with your “social” struggle, with your citizenism you work for the reinforcement of democracy. Always in search of consensus, without ever crossing over the limit of the “possible” and the “rational,” the only compass guiding your action is the penal code. Willing to risk only up to a point, always ready to find infinite ideological justifications so as not admit to your own fears. We are sure one day you will have the last word on us, as in the past you have had with your last experience of armed struggle. In a few years you will write a good book on our story, criticizing our errors and our shortcomings; from the heights of your “coherency” nothing is revolutionary enough, but no one, not even you, will be able to take away the pleasure that today we have fully realized and lived, here and now, our revolution.

If we consider the lives of the vast majority of us anarchists we realize that we are not so distant from the alienation of those who produce, consume and die. We produce and consume radical culture and alternative music and slowly, ever so slowly, die without ever having taken arms against and shot an oppressor. All our revolutionary tension is unleashed in fiery articles for our journals and websites, in fiery words to our songs and the sporadic clash in the plaza, enough to silence one’s own conscience. It is clear that what we are making is a self-critique, we do not feel that we are something different from other anarchists. By holding a stupid pistol, we have only taken one step in many for escaping from the alienation of “Now is not the moment…” “The times are not ripe…”

Vanquishing fear was simpler than what we had imagined it. Doing today what only yesterday we thought impossible is the only solution that we have found for breaking down the wall of daily oppression, of the impotency and resignation that we have seen up to now as pawns in an insurrectionalist anarchism of mere facade that with its lack of courage legitimates power. We could strike while looking for “consensus” on where the tooth hurts, for example some functionary of Equitalia [tax collection agency in Italy, which is very unpopular these days – transl.], but with this action we are not looking for “consensus.” What we are looking for now is complicity. In the recent past, a cell of the FAI/IRF severely wounded a functionary of Equitalia, which has received a wide approval, something that the self-named “social” anarchists in recent years have tried countless times to achieve without much success. The brothers and sisters of the “Free Eat and Billy Cell” have shown with that action that in the end consistency pays, and that it is not necessary to limit oneself to action in order to get “consensus.” These comrades have shaken from our backs a malediction that has for too long been weighing on anarchists’ backs, the malediction of this badly interpreted search for social consensus that binds the hands of those who are aware of the urgency to act, here and now.

In these times in which so much certainty of the state-capital is sinking, the idea of freedom cannot be derogated: the idea of social struggle in which we recognize ourselves and we want to move ourselves is that of a people in arms against any form of state, political, or economic oppression. We do not consider ourselves representative of citizens indignant over some malfunctioning of a system that they want to continue to be part of. Exchanging rage and indignation in the place of a process of revolt against the status quo is a sign of a dangerous revolutionary myopia. With the entangling of comrades, even generous ones, into the cultivation of a field of dissenting democracy, with its own little cliques and consortia and its miniature politicians, generosity transforms into assistance, the spectacularization of the clash with relative manipulation by the media. Only the radicalization of the conflict can lead to paths of social and individual freedom.

Identify the target, “hit where it hurts most,” know to recognize the enemy even when it is playing the lamb. Make the arms of critique and the critique of arms work hand in hand. There is neither rhetoric nor spectacle in an action carried out with the appropriate selection of means and objective.

With this action we give rise to the “Olga Cell.” We enthusiastically adhere to the FAI/IRF, uniting with so many groups of the new anarchist international around the world, Mexico, Chile, Peru, Argentina, Indonesia, Russia, England, Italy, Spain, Greece… Projecting and carrying out this action were anarchists without any “military” experience, without any specialization, only the anarchists who with this our first action want to definitively mark a line between ourselves and that anarch-ism that burns only when chatting and is soaked in gregariousness. We have taken the name of a sister of ours from the CCF, Olga Ikonomidou because in her consistency and strength as part of the “Imprisoned Members’ Cell of the CCF”, she resides at the heart of the FAI/IRF. In our next action, the name of another Greek brother, an action for each of them. With Adinolfi’s wounding we propose a campaign of struggle against Finmeccanica, murderous octopus.  Today Ansaldo Nuclear, tomorrow another of its tentacles — we invite all the groups and individuals of the FAI to strike this monstrosity with all necessary means.

LONG LIVE THE CONSPIRACY OF CELLS OF FIRE
LONG LIVE THE FAI/IRF
LONG LIVE ANARCHY!

State Security Agency vehicle torched by Cell for Violent and Excessive Attack on Power / FAI (Mexico)

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

From Liberación Total (April 15, 2012) via This is our Job:

14 April 2012

Let us therefore trust the eternal Spirit which destroys and annihilates only because it is the unfathomable and eternal source of all life. The passion for destruction is a creative passion, too!

M. Bakunin

Last night, we took to the streets with the clear intention to rupture their social peace, to break the order constituted by most of society’s passiveness, conformism, and ambition for power. At around 11:30 p.m., we placed two delayed incendiary devices next to a State Security Agency (ASE) patrol car parked in front of the ASE headquarters on Avenida Texcoco in the Juan Escutia suburb on the border of Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl and the Federal District. At the site, we also left graffiti claiming responsibility by the FAI!

We attack the property of the State/Capital’s security forces with fire, just like we would lethally and explosively attack those henchmen of power. The conflict with authority also exists in the neighborhoods on the edge of the city. We don’t expect to turn the system on its head with a single action. This is a daily war for freedom and individual rights. May they burn wherever they are, whether in Polanco or Santa Fe, Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl or Ecatepec! Let everyone destroy their own oppressions and burn down the city! Conflict is in the streets, and it is accompanied by incendiary discourse that incites breaking the chains on thought and action that are encouraged, espoused, and imposed by pacifism and nonviolence!

Solidarity with comrade Tortuga!

Solidarity with Gabriel Pombo da Silva!

Solidarity with Braulio Durán!

Solidarity with the compas who were recently retaliated against in Italy!

Solidarity with Eat and Billy of the Indonesian FAI!

Against the police: arsons every day!

Against the State/Capital: Social War on all fronts!

Long live anarchy!

Solidarity letter with the anarchist comrades and with Culmine, from Conspiración Acrata (Mexico)

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

from liberaciontotal, transl waronsociety:

It is the hour of the social tragedy!
We will destroy laughing.
We will set fires laughing.
We will kill laughing.
We will expropriate laughing.
And society will fall.
The fatherland will fall.
The family will fall.
All will fall after the free man is born.
The one is born who has learned the Dionysian art of joy and laughter through tears and sorrow.
The hour has come to drown the enemy in blood…
The hour has come to wash our minds in blood.
Enough, enough, enough!
As the poet transforms his lyre into a dagger!
As the philosopher transforms his probe into a bomb!
As the fisherman transforms his oar into a formidable ax.
As the miner comes up from the unbearable caves of the dark mines armed with his shining iron.
As the farmer transforms his fruitful spade into a war lance.
As the laborer transforms his hammer into a scythe and cleaver.
And forward, forward, forward.
It is time, it is time — it is time!
And society will fall.
The fatherland will fall.
The family will fall.
All will fall after the Free Man is born.
Forward, forward, forward, oh joyful destroyers.
Beneath the black edge of death we will conquer Life!
Laughing!
And we will make it our slave! Laughing!
And we will love it laughing!
Since the only serious people are those who know how to be actively engaged laughing.
And our hatred laughs…
Red laughter. Forward!
Forward, for the destruction of the lie and of the phantoms!
Forward, for the complete conquest of individuality and of Life!

RENZO NOVATORE – TOWARD THE CREATIVE NOTHING
1922, ITALY.

A few days ago, the security apparatus at the hand of the Italian State perpetrated a repressive raid against anarchist comrades and the Culmine blog, a raid carried out in various cities and towns of that country, resulting in 4 comrades arrested under accusations that are the most common accusations in Italy and under which many other comrades have been arrested and incarcerated in the past, in similar repressive raids. Accused of Terrorism and subversive association, our comrades find themselves in the clutches of the State and need to be vindicated in the same way that those anarchist comrades in affinity in Italy have shown themselves in solidarity with the struggles and the prisoners in other parts of the World.

Letter from the Imprisoned Members Cell of the CCF to Culmine & Parole Armate concerning the recent raids (Italy)

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Translated by Act for freedom now! / boubourAs:

For a few days now has begun one more oppressive operation against anarchist comrades in Italy. Some comrades were arrested, interrogated, some got conditional discharges and others, house arrest.

The cops raided houses in the areas of Pisa, Chieti, Genoa, Catania, Ravena and elsewhere. The operation included the Carabinieri of Perugia, the Antiterrorist and the team of Technical Investigations of Rome. Amongst the arrestees, were also 4 anarchist comrades who were persecuted for “criminal organization of a subversive nature”. From the confiscated objects from the houses of the comrades, this time the cops showed special interest to their email communication with Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Marco Camenisch and the members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. During the investigation the email account of Culmine and Parole Armate was broken into and copied. By the cops.

Don’t say that its over…

Through these few words we send a comradely signal to all those who participate in Culmine and Parole Armate helping in the translations and the spreading of communiques, texts and letters from prison for the spreading of insurrectional anarchy.

Right now the Black International of the anarchists of action is a fact. Nothing would be the same without them. Especially this last year an international anarchist galaxy is created by individuals and autonomous groups who, whether support the FAI/IRF, or not, the attack the existing, communicate with their concerns, exchange thoughts.

They are the comrades with no name, the friends without a face, they are all of us who wore a hood and became bombers of authority symbols, bank robbers, saboteurs of their normality, and arsonists of social peace. Through Culmine and Parole Armate we share experiences and close relations with these unknown comrades from around the world.

This sharing is a moment of the continuous attack against the dogmatic thought, the mass culture, the society of useless information. Through Culmine and Parole Armate blossoms the real polymorphic dialogue of the anarchist insurrectional internationalism, not just in the words, but in practice. Because words fill the pages just like bullets slide into the chamber of a gun.

Ready and armed to give their own battle. Words that hit the normality of daily life, words that escape from the prison cells, words that are whispered conspiratorially before the moment of the attack, words that turn into actions, words that don’t beat around the bush, words clean like our look and conscience.

This wind of thousands of untameable words and anarchist actions visits numerous times the crossroad of Culmine and Parole Armate, for a moment, so it can explode and create again thousands of new moments of chaos and anarchy.

Culmine and Parole Armate is the secret harbour of chaos where words mixed up with actions and thoughts disguised into gestures go back-and-forth continuously in indeterminate and informal formations of attack. By stealing and rephrasing the words of the comrades Parole Armate we can say that the project of Culmine and Parole Armate is a result of the will of some anarchist individuals who deny the meaning of the official syntactic team and instead of that invite all those are interested in the spreading of insurrectional anarchist texts, to create relations and situations which liberate and are ready to be materialized outside the virtual frame of the internet.

For us the anarchist undertakings of Culmine and Parole Armate were created from the thought and desire of some comrades who discussed, managed from some hands which liberated meanings and disputes and belong to whoever considers them a piece of the individual and collective struggle for anarchy and chaos.
No matter what happens because of the attack of the Italian police, Culmine and Parole Armate will remain for ever a meeting point of comrades and friends, an unmade map of the Black International of Anarchists of Action.

Until we meet again

Solidarity to the comrades who are persecuted by the Italian state FOR EVER IN BATTLE FOR THE REALIZATION OF THE BLACK INTERNATIONAL OF THE ANARCHISTS OF ACTION

Buenos Aires: Criminal Court bombed by Indomitable Nucleus for the Spread of the Fire / FAI (Argentina)

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

From culmine:

1 March 2012

Ours is the conviction

Gendarmería, Local, and Buenos Aires Federal police, civilian brigades, anti-terrorist laws, biometric identification systems, thousands of cameras throughout the city, vigilant citizens ready to betray, overcrowded jails, torture, murder … this is the scenario where our struggle, in a context similar to many other cities, attacking comrades, individually or collectively, without any social consensus and without the approval of any leader, alone and with their principles and values, ​​burn like a fire.

For our part, we report that on Thursday March 1st at 2:30 in the morning, we attacked with an explosive / incendiary, the Criminal Court in Calle Paraguay 1536, in the city center, causing visible damage to the facade and their windows.

We’re thinking of the comrades Freddy Fuentevilla Saa, Marcelo Villarroel Sepulveda and Juan Aliste Vega, who were on hunger strike in prison in Santiago on February 17, within days of international turmoil (19 to 29 February).

Compañeros: The subversion is awake and will not disappear! While there is poverty there will be rebellion!!

The brothers of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, that even within the prison continue war unabated. We are brothers with their words, their gestures and their actions and with the project of the Informal Anarchist Federation, to which we contribute and strengthen.

With love and complicity for the companion Luciano Pitronello (Turtle), wounded and kidnapped by the Chilean state. Gabriel Pombo da Silva, prisoner in Germany – anarquista integro; Marco Camenisch, fighter for the liberation of the earth; and comrade-prisoners in Mexico, Spain, Italy, Indonesia…

With Mauricio Morales and Lambros Foundas always present in the combative memory.

War without truce to the whole system of domination

Buenos Aires: Communique for arsons of luxury vehicles and bombing of police station (Argentina)

Friday, January 6th, 2012

From liberaciontotal, translated by war on society:

Communique:

By means of this communique we claim responsibility for the deliberate arson of two luxury vans last morning–the first at the intersection of Rawson and Diaz Velez in the Almagro neighborhood, totally destroying the vehicle, and the second at the intersection of Senillosa and Rondeau, Boedo, burning the van with partial damages.

This action is framed within gestures of international solidarity for with the prisoners of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, who have shown courage and consistency in their recent escape attempt, in solidarity with Eat and Billy, anarchist guerrillas belonging to the FAI captured in Indonesia, and in clear support of all the prisoners in war against authority, especially Freddy, Marcelo and Juan, Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Marco Camenisch… likewise in complicit wink to the comrades who beat up the enemy in the streets.

We take this occasion to reiterate that on December 20, approximately at 2:30 am, we left an incendiary/explosive device at the front door of the 3rd Precinct located at 1560 Tucuman, in vengeance for the fallen during the revolt of 2001 and in clear destructive feeling toward the servants of order. We released a communique to this effect at the time, to various mass media (which obviously censored it), but also to an internet page of the anarchist space, which it did not include for reasons we do not know of. [As LT explain in posting this release, the 12/20 communique must have been lost due to technical email problems since they do not censor these kinds of communication – transl.] From now on, we will send copies of our communiques to various anarchist sites, and another communique when the situation requires it to the mass media..

We reproduce below the [12/20] communique released at that time.

To continue the offensive with what we have at hand…

Against the anti-terrorist law, the biometric identification law,
and against all the laws, fire and gunpowder!!!

Death the gendarmeria, prefectura and every kind of police!!!

To not await any social consensus, to attack now and immediately what intends to destroy us, to position ourselves, to wage war!!!

Antagonist Cell for Complete Freedom / FAI – IRF

Communique from 12/20:

Last night, hours after the beginning of the new anniversary of December 20, we have deposited our rage embodied this time in a liter of gasoline and a good amount of black border at the door of the 3rd Precinct located at 1560 Tucuman st, under the very noses of the torturers. We carried out this action in vengeance for the fallen during the revolt of December 2001, but also in memory of Dario Santallan and Maximiliano Kostecky, later murdered during the command of the narco-trafficker Eduardo Duhalde, and in memory of all those murdered by the police in times of progressive democracy and applauded by the vast majority of the society. We, for ourselves, are not going to remain passive observing how they murder fighters in cold blood, however ideas may separate us, the practices of direct confrontation bring us close, as well as the sincerity in the struggle. To all those who in one way or another confronted and confront authority, this gesture is directed to them, DEATH TO ALL THE POLITICAL PARTIES WHO IN A FEW HOURS WILL COME TO THE PLAZA DE MAYO WITH THEIR SHIT PACIFYING DISCOURSE, SHITTING ON THE MEMORY OF THE DEAD!! LONG LIVE LOOTING, DIRECT ACTION, ROBBERY, LONG LIVE ANARCHY!!! FOR PRECISION AND DEADLINESS IN OUR BLOWS!!!

With love for comrade Luciano Pitronello and the comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire…

Barcelona: Anti-election attacks claimed by Anti-authoritarian Insurgency of Action / FAI (Catalunya-Spain)

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

November 17-20, 2011Coordinated actions by Anti-authoritarian Insurgency of Action / Informal Anarchist Federation

– translated by war on society:

Communique:

We always ask ourselves why in the Spanish state the strategy of a unified international federation has not been proposed. Instead of waiting and continuing to ask questions, we offer a small step.

After about one year of small anonymous actions of sabotages, failures, and small victories, we have decided to contemplate Anarchy from another perspective, thus we have made the decision to form part of the Informal Anarchist Federation and of the International Revolutionary Front. We want to experiment with the feeling that comes with adhering to this project, to study new forms of understanding Chaos* and participate in all fields of struggle. Anarchism is a movement of liberation, a weapon of struggle, a form of life and/or action, or at least many understand it as such. We want to have an opportunity to have a crucial role in the social war and beginning with the daily practice, we will be steadfast. Likewise, we intend to ‘open the can’ or raise from self-criticism new forms of direct action and animate informal, horizontal and combative organization. We believe in anti-authoritarianism, in chaos and in a strong anarchist praxis, likewise the constant reproduction of sabotages, boycotts and attacks that trouble and could undermine capital’s projects and capital itself. Also in this form of struggle we opt for and accept the direct attack against Nazi-fascism; in the struggle against authority and against the system, the powerful attack against Nazi-fascism is another front, and the direct and from-behind struggle to crush those who believe themselves racially or politically superior to the rest is fundamental. We seek the creation of a continual situation of tension and conflictuality against power.

“In the face of a system of control and domination, only the combative struggle can prevail”

We understand attacks and the destruction of the social order as a very valid and decisive tool, however, we do not make it a revolutionary dogma nor a fetishism, and depending on the situation its application, reproduction and deployment can vary. Following reflection, thought and analysis, we believe that in attacks a certain quality is required, in effect, without leaving the quantitative aside.

We consider it clear that the qualitative is essential, we must look to harm the system and its functioning at the root; that is, for example seeking some way of striking the consumption of commodities such as the attack on WalMart in Mexico, sabotaging an election day and making its normal functioning impossible, destroying the machines and possessions of some despot, and aggressions and direct attacks that provoke true fear in those responsible for governmental terror. Also it can be very effective to saturate the metropolitan media with subversive propaganda or propaganda in solidarity with imprisoned comrades. Actions and attacks against capitalism as an effective MEDIUM.

“But it is interesting to ask oneself if now, little by little we are learning from our past, little by little we are widening our dream of an Informal Anarchist Federation / International Revolutionary Front. If now our affinities in the Iberian Peninsula will also remain in the medium of anonymous crowds, or on the contrary will join the revolutionary effort.”Gabriel Pombo da Silva

In the Spanish state (may its flag burn!) we have experienced harsh periods of repression, since armed groups and resistance in the 70s and 90s were very forceful, the system and the state became especially repressive against any organized dissent and any insurgent cell. The prisons and the prison system are especially repressive and the conditions of the prisoners (and more so of political prisoners) are bad, very bad. Thus it is understandable that up to this moment actions have been anonymous. However, in the face of new political situations and new revolutionary processes, some have seen the necessity of forming part of a common project, of extending the revolutionary family through more horizons and raising their fists against the old dogmas, seeking new fronts and trying to operate as an antagonist cell. Gabriel Pombo da Silva (a salute to him) is right, from our own experiences we must continue searching, studying and acting to aggrandize our experience and the wounds against the new phases of capitalism each time more and more monopolistic. That is, to join the revolutionary effort. However, the FAI/IRF is an option for anyone who wants it, for anyone who wants to use that medium as a tool of struggle and how to approach other comrades who unfortunately live farther away.

“To defend oneself by saying that the political context in the place one lives is not adequate for the struggle, is just an excuse for not breaking the tranquility of the everyday.”
Silvia Guerini

It is easy to be a mere spectator of the social war from the computer screen, but just because it is easy does not mean it is valid. We believe that not everything depends on the context and the situation, like something external that floats in the air. Situations are made by us, by creating for ourselves, working hard and creating our own projects, being protagonists of the social war and having an active role, being the protagonists of our own reality and struggle. The ecological problems and what creates them–nanotechnology and biotechnology–not to combat them only, but exactly the contrary. It is necessary to create spaces of practice and counterpower for escaping from the established, but above all if these have a direct role against the state and the view it creates, a role destructive of the hypertechnological system. Ground work is indispensable, as is participation in social struggles and involving oneself in many causes, but always recognizing the root problem and seeking its total destruction. If we do not hurry in the creation of a consolidated and strong resistance, an active opposition, within a few years we will be obliged to give thanks to work entire days in the trenches until the age of 67. Thus, from now on we associate ourselves in the Informal Anarchist Federation and the revolutionary front as a way and contribution to expanding the federation and the development of the true revolutionary movement (either as part of the federation and the front, or in autonomous and anonymous groups).

“This is what has happened, what we have. If anything scares us it is the return to normality, because in the streets in the actions, the expropriations, etc, in our cities of light and death, we do not see only the consequences of our rage, but rather attempts to be able to live again. We have nothing to do but turn it into a living reality, to halt the field of everyday life, our power to materialize our desires, our power to not contemplate but rather transform the real–that is our vital space, everything else is dead.”

“Those who want to understand will understand, now is the moment to shatter our invisible cages and to transform our small and pathetic lives.”

We escape from the networks and structures of capital created by sociopaths, we escape from the substitution of the social networks that make us avoid ourselves for a better world in which we only speak with the wall, developing the cancer that presupposes [also entails, signifies – transl] appearances, and we do not want to appear [as in to seem, to feign – transl] but rather to attack. We unite with the insurgents. That it’s no use from the start, the critique of this–our actions and struggle–does not have a political expression, our struggle is our political expression.

Our struggle is the only thing we have. We are not for making a fool of anyone, we are precarious youth at war against domination.

To part with the appointed times: we consider that during and after an action or demonstration a series of things happen; first we gain–that is, we achieve the objective thereby concretely sabotaging the objective, and then we lose since we return to adhering to spectacular normality, we abandon the subversive role and we go on to exist within the networks again; thus and so far as it is possible, actions should go on extending themselves, perpetuating themselves and making themselves daily and habitual until–together with words, solidarity and every type of anarchist practice–they can create some subversive social fabrics and some strong bases of counterpower.

We did not want these words to just be dead words.

Coordinated actions:

Mailing of envelopes that simulated explosive letters:

On November 17th and 18th, two envelopes that simulated explosive letters we sent to the headquarters of the PSC and the PPC in Barcelona.[1] The same day of the 18th, notes were left at the door of both headquarters reading: “The domination, abuses, terror and control do not go unnoticed; expressions of rage will not be mere simulations next time. Death to capital and the politicians. Long live anarchy.”

Barcelona, November 20th, 2011:

In the late night to early hours of November 19th-20th, the locks of 15 polling stations were sealed, some cameras located in the same centers were obscured and attacked. Later, at 1:30am, the street was blockaded at Av. Meridiana and Ruben Dario (around #460), later at 2:15-2:30 the street was blockaded between Claramunt and Serós.

On November 20th, 12:30pm, Barcelona: bomb threat in the city of (in)justice.

On November 20th, 7:50pm, Badalona: bomb threat to the courthouse of Badalona.

On November 20th, no one votes, active abstention, They do not represent us!

Anti-authoritarian Insurgency of Action / Informal Anarchist Federation

For the comrades of other countries who don’t understand:
1. PPC and PSC are the Cataluña branches of the (un)Popular Party and the P$OE — parties that represent in the $tate the major political forces enacting and coordinating cuts and privatizations.

* Translation notes: The Spanish language, in addition to ‘anarchism’ and ‘anarchy,’ has a third related term–acracia–which can be translated as anarchy. It has the most apolitical connotation of the three, so we translate it here as ‘chaos.’ We generally translated its adjective form as ‘anarchic.’

Barcelona, sabotajes anti-electorales por Insurgencia Antiautoritària d’Acció / Federación Anarquista Informal (Catalunya-España)

Monday, November 21st, 2011

17-20 Novembre 2011 – Acciones coordinadas

por Insurgencia Antiautoritaria de Accion/Federación Anarquista Informal

Communicado:

Siempre nos preguntemos por que en el estado español no se planteó la estrategia de una federación internacional unitaria. En lugar de esperar y seguir con interrogantes, damos un pasito.

Después de un año aproximadamente de pequeñas acciones anónimas de sabotajes, de fracasos y de pequeñas victorias, se ha decidido contemplar la Anarquia desde otra perspectiva, por eso hemos tomado la decisión de formar parte de la Federación Anarquista Informal y del Frente Revolucionario Internacional. Queremos experimentar de cerca la sensación que conlleva el hecho de adherirse a este proyecto, estudiar nuevas formas de entender la Acracia y participar en todos los campos de lucha. El Anarquismo es un movimiento de liberación, un arma de lucha, una forma de vida y/o accionar, o almenos muchxs lo entendemos así. Queremos tener una oportunidad de tener un papel crucial en la guerra social y a partir del trabajo diario, vamos a ser constantes. De la misma forma, se pretende abrir la lata o plantear desde la autocritica nuevas formas de acción directa y animar a la organización informal, horizontal y combativa. Creemos en el antiautoritarismo, en la acracia y en u na fuerte praxis anarquista, asi como la reproducción constante de sabotajes, boicots y ataques que dificulten y puedan mermar los proyectos del capital y al capital en si. También en esta forma de lucha optamos y aceptamos el ataque directo contra el Nazifascismo, en la lucha contra la autoridad y contra el sistema, el ataque contundente contra el Nazifascismo es un frente más y es fundamental la lucha directa y posterior aplastamiento de quien se cree superior racial y políticamente de lxs demás. Buscamos la creación de una situación continua de tensión y conflictividad contra el poder.

“Ante un sistema de control y dominación solo la lucha combativa ha de prevalecer”

Entendemos los ataques y la destrucción del orden social como una herramienta muy válida y decisiva, sin embargo, no lo hacemos un dogma revolucionario ni un fetichismo, y depende de la situación su aplicación, reproducción y desempeño puede variar. Después de reflexionar, de profundizar y de análisis, creemos que en los ataques se precisa una cierta calidad, en efecto, sin dejar de lado lo cuantitativo.

Dejamos claro que lo cualitativo es esencial, debemos mirar de perjudicar al sistema y su funcionamiento de raíz, es decir, como ejemplo buscar alguna forma de perjudicar el consumo de mercancías como el ataque al Wall Mart en México, sabotear una jornada electoral entera perjudicando y haciendo imposible su normal funcionamiento, destruir las máquinas y posesiones de algún cacique, vamos, agresiones y ataques directos que provoquen un miedo de verdad a lxs responsables del terror gubernamental. También puede ser muy efectivo empapelar media metrópolis con propaganda subversiva o en solidaridad con compañerxs presxs. Las acciones y los ataques al capitalismo como un MEDIO eficaz.

“Pero es interesante preguntarse si ahora.. que poco a poco se va conociendo parte de nuestro pasado, que poco a poco se va ampliando nuestro sueño de una Federación Anarquista Informal/Frente Revolucionario Internacional. Si ahora nuestrxs afines en la Península ibérica también se van a quedar en el medio de las multitudes anónimas o por el contrario se suman al empeño revolucionario”
Gabriel Pombo da Silva

En el estado español (¡que arda su bandera!) hemos vivido duros episodios de represión, pues los grupos armados y resistentes en los 90 y en los años 70 tuvieron mucha fuerza, el sistema y el estado se volvió especialmente represor contra cualquier disidencia organizada y con cualquier círculo insurgente. Las prisiones y el sistema carcelario son especialmente represores y las condiciones de lxs presxs (y más si son presxs politicxs) son malas, muy malas. De esta forma se hace entendible que hasta el momento, las acciones hayan sido anónimas. Sin embargo, ante nuevas situaciones políticas y nuevos procesos revolucionarios, algunxs han visto la necesidad de formar parte de un proyecto común, de extender la familia revolucionaria por más horizontes y levantar los puños contra los viejos dogmas, buscar nuevos frentes y tratar de trabajar como un círculo antagónico. Gabriel Pombo da Silva (un saludo para el) está en lo cierto, a partir de las experiencias propias debemos seguir buscando, estudiando y actuando para engrandecer nuestra experiencia y los daños contra las nuevas fases del capitalismo cada vez más y más monopolista. Es decir, unirnos al empeño revolucionario. No obstante, la FAI/IRF es una opción para quien lo quiera, para quien quiera usar ese medio como herramienta de lucha y como acercamiento a otrxs compas que por desgracia, viven más lejos.

“Escudarse diciendo que el contexto político en el lugar donde se vive no es el adecuado para la lucha, es solo una excusa para no romper la tranquilidad de la cotidianidad” Silvia Guerini

Es fácil ser un mero espectador de la guerra social desde la pantalla del ordenador, pero por que sea fácil no significa que sea válido. Creemos que no todo depende del contexto y de la situación como algo que flota en el aire y es externo. Las situaciones las hemos de crear por nosotrxs mismxs, trabajar duro y crear proyectos propios, ser protagonistas de la guerra social y tener un papel activo, ser lxs protagonistas de nuestra propia realidad y lucha. Los problemas ecológicos y lxs que lxs provocan, la nanotecnología y la biotecnología, no se combatirán solas, todo lo contrario. Se necesita crear espacios de trabajo y de contrapoder, de escapar de lo establecido, pero sobretodo si estos tienen un papel directo contra el estado y a la vez que creativo, destructivo contra el sistema hipertecnológico. El trabajo de base es imprescindible como el participar en luchas sociales e implicarse en muchas causas, pero reconociendo siempre el problema de raíz y buscando su total destrucción. Si no nos apresuramos en la creación de una resistencia consolidada y fuerte, de una oposición activa, dentro de unos años deberemos dar gracias por trabajar jornadas enteras en zanjas hasta los 67 años. Por eso, a partir de ahora nos aglutinamos en la Federación Anárquica Informal y en el frente revolucionario como una forma y contribución de ampliar la federación y el desarrollo del verdadero movimiento revolucionario (sea como parte de la federación y del frente, o en grupos autónomos y anónimos)

“Esto es lo que ha pasado, lo que tenemos. Si algo nos asusta es el regreso a la normalidad por que en las calles en las acciones, las expropiaciones, etc en nuestras ciudades de luz y muerte, no vemos solo las consecuencias de nuestra rabia, si no, intentos de poder volver a vivir. Ya no tenemos nada que hacer salvo convertirlo en una realidad viviente, parando el campo de la vida cotidiana, nuestro poder de materializar nuestros deseos, nuestro poder de no contemplar si no transformar lo real, ese es nuestro espacio vital, todo lo demás es muerte.”

“Lxs que quieran entender entenderán, ahora es el momento de romper nuestras celdas invisibles y de transformar nuestras pequeñas y patéticas vidas.”

Escapamos de las redes y estructuras del capital, confeccionadas por sociópatas, escapamos del sucedáneo de las redes sociales que nos hacen evadirnos a un mundo mejor, mientras que hablamos solxs con la pared desarrollando el cáncer que supone el aparentar y nosotrxs no queremos aparentar, si no atacar. Nos unimos a lxs insurgentes. Que de nada sirvan de antemano, la critica de que nuestras acciones y lucha no tienen una expresión política, nuestra lucha es nuestra expresión política.

Nuestra lucha es lo único que tenemos. No estamos para venderle la moto a nadie, somos jóvenes precarixs en guerra contra la dominación.

Partiendo de las citas, consideramos que tras y durante de hacer una acción o una manifestación luchadora suceden una serie de cosas; primero ganamos, es decir, logramos el objetivo saboteando el objetivo en concreto y posteriormente perdemos, pues volvemos a aglutinarnos a la espectacular normalidad, dejamos de tener el papel subversivo y pasamos a estar entre las redes de nuevo, por eso y en medida de que cada uno pueda, las acciones deben seguir prolongándose, perpetuarse y hacerse diarias y habituales hasta que-junto las palabras, la solidaridad y todo tipo de trabajo anárquico-se puedan crear unos tejidos sociales subversivos y unas bases de contrapoder fuertes.

No queríamos que estas palabras fueran solo palabras muertas.

Acciones coordinadas:

Envío de sobres que simulaban ser cartas explosivas:

Los días 17 y 18 de noviembre se enviaron dos sobres que simulaban ser cartas explosivas a la sede central del PSC y del PPC en Barcelona. El mismo dia 18 se dejaron en la puerta de ambas sedes unas notas que rezaban: “El dominio, los abusos, el terror y el control no pasan inadvertidos, las expresiones de rabia no serán simples simulaciones posteriormente. Muerte al capital y a lxs politicxs. Viva la anarquia”.

Barcelona, 20 de Noviembre de 2011.

En la tardenoche-madrugada del 19 al 20 de noviembre se sellaron las cerraduras de 15 colegios electorales, se oscurecieron y atacaron algunas cámaras ubicadas en los mismos centros. Posteriormente, a la 1:30 de la madrugada, se corto la calle en el cruce de la avenida meridiana y la calle Ruben Darío (aproximadamente numero 460), más tarde a las 2:15-2:30 se cortó la calle en el cruce entre el Carrer de Claramunt i el Carrer de Serós.

12:30, 20 de Noviembre, Barcelona; aviso de bomba en la ciudad de la (in)justicia.

19:50, 20 de Noviembre, Badalona; aviso de bomba en los juzgados de Badalona.

El 20 de Noviembre nadie vota, abstención activa, ¡No nos representan!

Insurgencia Antiautoritària d’Acció/Federación Anarquista Informal

Para lxs compas de otros paises que no lo entiendan:
1. PPC y PSC son las ramas en Cataluña del Partido (in)Popular y el P$OE. Partidos que representan en el e$tado las fuerzas políticas mayoritarias autoras de realizar y coordinar los recortes y privatizaciones.
2. “Venderle la moto” significa tomar por estúpido a alguien.
