The lawyers for the social combatants: Andi Suryo Awalludin and Hillarius NG Merro chose not to submit an exception to the judges. In front of the Judge Leader, Mulyanto, three of the prosecutors: Wiwik Triatmini, Wahyu Handoko and Tri Widi read the indictment alternately. In this case, the two combatants (Eat & Billy) are charged with the same clauses but accused of having different roles. (more…)

Correction – Court Update – Trial continues Tuesday February 7 2012

From Indonesia to Chile…

October 7th, 2011
– two anarchists are arrested and imprisoned in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, after an explosive incendiary attack against an empty branch of BRI ATM bank. The action is declared through a written document which the police catch the anarchists in possession of. The written declaration states that the action is in solidarity with Luciano ‘Tortuga’ (a young anarchist combatant in Chile, who was accidentally maimed in a bomb attack against Santander bank), as well as many anarchist prisoners, including those of ‘Caso Bombas’ in Chile and the Revolutionary Organisations – Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and Revolutionary Struggle in Greece. Situating themselves firmly within the global revolutionary war for liberation and freedom, Eat & Billy also state that their action is a direct attack against the terrorism of the Indonesian State and their police and military.

Trial begins of Eat & Billy, Long-Live Luciano Tortuga Cell / FAI (Indonesia)

Monday, January 30th, 2012

Rough translation from news of the comrades of Negasi:

Two combatants of the Jogja area (Eat & Billy) who have been detained since October 7, 2011, have now been moved to the court prison and will face their first trial today, January 30, 2012. This trial will proceed with the second trial to be held on February 1, 2012.

From the information we managed to get, both combatants will be tried separately and not together. We still do not know the real reason behind it, but from the interim analysis we can conclude that this was done to try to make the two combatants attack each other, cornering and mutually incriminating one another. This condition clearly shows how the State through the police and military will only operate through fear and terror. The trial itself will be held open. Place of the hearing itself is still not known for sure. But to estimate where the hearing will be held, the State High Court in Sleman (Jogyakarta) is a good guess.

Therefore we call for solidarity with the combatants of Jogja, and so that comrades are able to come and attend this hearing. The presence of this, other than a form of tangible support, is also part of an effort to show to the authorities that we never trust their justice.

Long live the Two Jogya Combatants
Long live solidarity

Hidayat in prison in Makassar after Bima demo – call for solidarity! (Indonesia)

Friday, January 6th, 2012

From negasi-negasi & kokemi via hidup biasa:

Makassar Police Headquarters have finally charged our comrade Hidayat, who is accused of damaging Police outposts during a demonstration supporting the people of Bima. According to the police, Hidayat’s status has been changed to ‘accused’ because they have sufficiently strong evidence to justify this higher level. They also claim to have video and photo evidence.

Hidayat participated in a solidarity action that took place in Makassar on 26th December 2011 against the brutal police clearance of the anti-mining protest in Bima, where thousands of people had occupied Sape port. From what we have managed to find out, he was arrested secretively in the crowds between Jalan Gunung Bawakaraeng and Karebosi Link. (more…)

Makassar: Solidarity action for those killed and hurt in Bima (Indonesia)

Wednesday, December 28th, 2011

Comrades in Indonesia sent this report:

Protests in Makassar (26/12) with an issue about police brutality that killed residents in Bima, had turned into a mass rampage. In the protests that followed more than 300 people, they attacking police post at Sudiman street, by throwing stones and other hard objects.

The action was called by Forum Rakyat Menggugat (Forgat) starting from 11 o’clock to roll out free speech in front of the Mandala Monument for over three hours. Various representatives from every organizations spoke and read their statements.

The masses moved north toward Karebosi. Right at the intersection, the masses started throwing objects at the police post spontaneously. They also throwing at BNI bank right next to the police station.

The masses moved back to the east of town, past the Mesjid Raya Road to go to the next action point namely Flyover kilometers 4. The masses throwing things at other Police stations in that location.

The destruction targets are generally of police facilities and the capitalism symbols such as banks, and the political symbol such as political billboards. Protesters claimed that what happened in Bima and elsewhere is caused by the greed of capitalism to exploit the environment which then threaten people’s lives.

Sadly, our comrade, Yayat (Unhas student), was arrested by police. The police didn’t release him until now.

Solidarity actions in Istanbul for the 64 punks arrested in Aceh, Indonesia (Turkey)

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

On the 11th of December 2011, in the very conservative and religious province of Aceh in Indonesia, 64 punks who were attending a punkrock show, were arrested and taken to jail without any criminal charges whatsoever.

The only reason for them to be victim of that totally arbitrary state repression was that they are punks. The police shaved their hair off and removed their piercings, their clothes were taken away from them, replaced by “decent” ones and they were forced to wash themselves in a “religious ritual”. Then they were brainwashed and “re-educated” for ten days through “religious education” and “military discipline”.

Against this outrageous police action, solidarity actions and demonstrations took place in Moscow, London, San Francisco, Los Angeles, China and Malaysia. (more…)

Eight killed in protest against Australian gold mining in Bima (Indonesia)

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

As part of the campaign for solidarity with the freedom struggle in Indonesia, we print this report from a comrade there:

On 24 December 2011, the tragedy happens in Bima, West Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. Four people (media local said) died (eight now confirmed dead – killed by police during the resistance). It began when thousands of people including farmers blockaded the harbour of Sape in Bima. They protest to the government which had given permission to PT SMN to mine gold in the area of the area about 24.980 hectares. The people there are worried about the environmental damage. It is because most of the people there work as farmers and fisherman. The presence of the mine will destroy water sources and finally the agricultural ways in the area will be damaged.

Moscow punks attack Indonesian embassy with paint in solidarity with Indonesian comrades (Russia)

Friday, December 16th, 2011

325 receives and transmits:

15 December 2011

On December the 15th a group of anonymous punks from Moscow decided to act upon receiving news of brutal state repression of Indonesian punk-scene. We consider ourselves anarcho-punks and these news offended us in the deepest sense. We wont tolerate any religion to hold sway over living being’s freedom, especially over our subculture. Thus on the same evening we gathered to express our rage. We chose Indonesian embassy as our target. For us solidarity starts on subcultural level. We feel that modern Russian anarchists pay too little attention to subcultures of resistance. We wish the news of our action to reach Indonesian comrades. We hope they will have their spirits soar after hearing that in such far-away country there are folks who feel solidarity with their struggle.

Punk is not a crime. Religion is fascism. Fight for your looks.

We didn’t want to make video, but it was agreed upon after a tedious discussion that even the most pacifist action should have video documentation. So here it goes:

Police arrest 64 punx at concert, shave their heads and imprison them for 're-education', Aceh (Indonesia)

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

Dozens of young men and women have been detained for being “punk” and “disturbing the peace” in Aceh, Indonesia’s most devoutly Muslim province. They are being held in a remedial school, where they are undergoing government “re-education”. The 64 punks, many of whom are from as far away as Bali or Jakarta, were picked up on Saturday 10 December night during a local concert. Many young teens sport punk hairstyles, in keeping with worldwide punk culture, but against the norms of the keenly religious in Aceh. (more…)

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.

THREE PARCEL BOMBS IN THESE DAYS ARE TRAVELLING TOWARD BANKS AND BANKERS, TICKS AND LEECHES. WITH THESE SMALL BUT RESOLVED ACTIONS, WE OF THE EAT & BILLY ITALIAN CELL JOIN IN THE NEW ANARCHIST INTERNATIONAL, THE INFORMAL ANARCHIST FEDERATION AND INTERNATIONAL REVOLUTIONARY FRONT. WE HAVE THIS NAME IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE INDONESIAN FAI, WITH OUR BROTHERS EAT AND BILLY. WE DON’T NEED SPECIALISTS OF ACTION, ANYONE CAN ARM THEIR OWN HANDS, ANYONE CAN ASSEMBLE THEIR OWN GIFT PACKAGE. WAR ON THE EUROPE OF THE BANKERS, DEATH TO THE LEECHES THAT GOVERN US.

LONG LIVE THE INDONESIAN FAI

LONG LIVE THE C.C.F.

VIVA THE NEW ANARCHIST GUERRILLA

VIVA THE FAI/IRF

Anarchists sabotage rail line to disrupt flows of capital – Southern Oregon (USA)

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

325 receives and transmits:

28 November 2011

Communique:

On the night of November 28th, 2011, we sabotaged a rail line in Southern Oregon as part of a coordinated effort to disrupt the flow of commerce on the West Coast. We got tired of watching trains pass through our towns loaded with lumber, ore, cheap commodities, and other resources pillaged from the earth without consequence. We didn’t do this out of a desire to create a more green, sustainable or humane civilization—we want nothing less than to see the total failure of this sick and rotten society.

This action was not only easy to carry out, but positively satisfying. We used 4AWG copper wire with the ends stripped of insulation and wrapped around the two sides of the track with the rest of it buried in the middle, which falsely indicated to a sensor that there was a train stopped on the railway.

We did this in solidarity with currently imprisoned members of the Long-Live Luciano Tortuga Cell/Indonesian FAI, to whom we send our most passionate revolutionary greetings.

We would also like to send our love to ALF prisoner of war, Walter Bond.

Towards an end to this nightmare world

FIRE AND GUNPOWDER : From Indonesia to Chile… A proposition for FAI/IRF (Global)

Friday, December 9th, 2011

A publication by the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire

We hear the song of fire that comes from far away. The words smell of gunpowder. From the other side of the world rebellious comrades burn the nights and liberate places and moments. We can hear them… They conspire, plan, attack… We do not have to say anything else, we leave our brothers and sisters to speak for us.

“We are all Conspiracy Cells of Fire. C.C.F. is not an organization or just a group. On the contrary it is a antagonistic expression of rage and contempt towards authority and its structures. To spread the C.C.F. all you need is gasoline, matches and the desire to fight for absolute freedom. We have begun the war against the existing order.”
Mexican C.C.F./FAI

The following text is dedicated to the Mexican C.C.F. and to our brothers and sisters of F.A.I. all around the world.

i)The wind blows against… from Indonesia to Chile.

These previous months from every corner of the earth more and more explosive messages of fire and gunpowder cross borders and seas reaching us here, in the Greek prisons where we are hostage, but not defeated.

Words mix with fire and behind the ashes of banks, government buildings, cop cars, nanotechnology labs, satellite antennas, private security cars and luxury shops, open a promise to friends and a threat to the enemy. They open a live proposition of the Informal Anarchist Federation (F.A.I.). An International Revolutionary Front (I.R.F.) is now organized in Italy, England, Chile, Mexico, Argentina, Russia, Holland, Peru, Bolivia, Indonesia, Australia, Greece…

An idea that started its journey ten years ago from Italy from the brothers and sisters of the Italian F.A.I. and today is stronger than ever. F.A.I. definitely is not a theoretic game of harmless words and symbols, but an idea to live dangerously and anarchically with all our senses, without dead time and cowardly excuses.

Often the texts that come to our hands like the one from the Italian F.A.I., the one from the English comrades of F.A.I. titled “Rain and Fire”, the announcement of the Russian F.A.I., the call of the 11 anarchist organizations from Mexico, and many more, fill us with a weird awkwardness. It’s this indescribable joy we feel when individuals and groups who do not know one another reach the same conclusions and feel the same feelings the exact same moment.

This feeling explodes in every word that unlocks the next and draws a common path of revolt. It is one of the few times that we do not have much to say. Most of our points are covered by our comrades. But we don’t want to consume the text in a series of compliments. (more…)

Milan – ATM Destruction by 'Revolting Individualists' (Italy)

Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

325 receives and transmits:

9 November 2011

In the night of 9th November 2011, in Milano (Italy), we smashed 7 bank ATMs.

We decided to attack the banks as they are the symbolic institutions of money, the pillar of today’s alienated and false social relations (work/consume) and of the power relations between the dominant élites and the mass of the exploited.

Crisis or no crisis, it’s the same existence of any economic system that disgusts us, a system that we’re not interested in saving or reforming but only in destroying.

The executives of the financial institutions, closed in their offices, everyday move huge quantities of capital, in order to gain as much profit as possible, not caring about the devastating effects that the projects they finance (wars and weapons, highways, energy plants, high speed trains, security and social control systems and so on) have on entire territories and populations.

This action is dedicated to Luciano Tortuga, Chilean anarchist comrade wounded while he was attacking a bank in Santiago.

Solidarity is not only words! Complicity and solidarity to all the prisoners that resist, and to anybody who fights here as in Chile, Greece, Russia, Belgium, Germany, Indonesia, Spain, Sweden, USA and anywhere else… against any form of oppression!

Riot shouldn’t be just a day of temporary joy but a permanent life condition… to take our lives back in our hands… more attacks against the symbols of State and Capital!
