Today March 30, 2016, lawyers of the compas Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar were notified that the sentence of the High Court condemns the anarchists to 5 years in prison on charges of “injury”, plus 7 years for “damage with terrorist purpose”, with a total of 12 years in prison for each of them. They were acquitted of the charges of “belonging to a terrorist organization and conspiracy” against the Monastery of Montserrat.
Facing the condemnation of our comrades we have the challenge of extend the struggle and solidarity, to defend our ties and our ideas, to deny that their world is reduced to the four walls that keep them locked up.
Strength to our imprisoned comrades, always present in our struggles and our
There is no “inside”, nor is there an “outside”, there are only enemies against the state and all authority.
Death to the state and long live anarchy!

Prison is a milestone in the revolutionaries’ path towards freedom. It’s an intermediary stop, but not the end.
The authority often chooses the subtraction from mathematics. Like when they subtract lives with bombings in the warzones of their energy-generating and geopolitical interests, like when they subtract refugees from the cityscapes, entombing them in isolated concentration camps, like they subtract the smallest crumbs of the underpaid wage slavery, beating more brutally with whips, bodies that have gotten used to rickets, like when they want to subtract everyone who defies them, by locking them up inside prisons…
In this way, every revolutionary anarchist is facing the biggest contradiction. They are fighting for freedom and yet they’re flirting with the captivity of the prison, they love life so much and yet death from the guards of authority wants to ambush them.
In these years that we are in prison, our steps have gotten used to be calculated inside the barbed wires, our eyes have learnt by heart every centimetre of these few cubic meters of the forecourt, but our minds have never been captured by the iron fences.
How can you let yourself capitulate, when you are facing on one side the provocative wealth of those in power and on the other side tearful eyes of a child at a concentration camp, on one side the mafia of the politicians, judges and journalists who are counting people like louses of the earth and on the other side men and women who are committing suicide because of the standoffs of the economic crisis, looking in garbage to find food, sleeping in the streets, on one side armies of happy slaves being dazzled from the storefronts and the screens of a fake life and on the other side the bad bevy of loneliness and silence being your only companion.
We don’t intend to capitulate with the tyranny of authority, neither get used to living like slaves.
We know that freedom isn’t something that can be given away… neither can it be bestowed… Our freedom blossoms from the blood and the sacrifices of our struggle. Even if once again, our desirable rendezvous with freedom has been postponed because of the dastardliness of one pilot- former policeman- and the helicopter that never reached its destination, that doesn’t mean that we will give up…
We are fully aware that the recovery of our freedom will be only achieved through revolutionary violence, which will attack against the monopoly of the sadistic violence of the power.
A freedom that in our opinion is the SAME with the continuation of urban guerilla, in order to escalate the anarchist struggle. A freedom that will walk on top of the debris of this aged world and its monuments… prisons, courts, parliaments, police departments, concentration camps, labs of the technological totalitarianism…
With certitude and determination of those who will risk everything for liberation, putting again the conundrum at the table… “Freedom or Death…”
A decision… we are fighting till the end
The struggle continues…
Comradely greetings to the anarchist member of Revolutionary Struggle Pola Roupa

Today, Thursday, March 10, the third and final hearing in the trial of our comrades Mónica and Francisco took place. There was mainly the summing up of the lawyers for both the defence and the prosecution, and that of the Public Prosecutor.
The hearing began with the expert witnesses called by the defence, who submitted reports on the comparative study of DNA from a number of objects found after the explosion, and DNA of Francisco and Mónica extracted from objects taken from their cells. They confirmed what had already been exposed in the reports: there is absolutely no correspondence.
Subsequently, the judge asked whether the parties confirmed their initial conclusions, a question to which the lawyer of the specific accuser, the woman who was in the Pilar at the moment of the explosion, confirmed wanting to maintain the charges of “damage” and “injury”, but asked for the charges of membership and conspiracy to be dropped, significantly lowering the request to 12 years and a day for each and asking for compensation of 102,000 euro.

[The following piece is a greeting from Conspiracy of Cells of Fire- Metropolitan Violence Cell at an event of the anti-authoritarian library “Las Lecheros” where a video projection of the Phoenix Project and an exposition for the book “Our day will come” has been made.]
With all eyes set towards the other side of the world, we are sending these few lines to express the kinship that we feel towards our brothers and sisters who are being present during this event. We address our most heartfelt greetings towards the comrades that took the responsibility to organize this event and to present the Phoenix Project along with the book “Our day will come”.
The Phoenix project is a vital part of the Black International of the anarchists of action, as it was the crossroad where comrades from all parts of the world were met, with a common desire, to breathe new life into an informal organization of anarchist action internationally.
The wick of Phoenix Project was fired from the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire/Sole-Baleno Cell, who blew up the car of the director of Korydallos Prison in Greece, officializing basically the comeback of CCF to the battlements of the anarchist aggression. Subsequently, comrades from the whole world reciprocated to this call for an informal coordination of attacks. We saw the fires of the anarchist insurrection to heat up in Indonesia, Russia, Chile, and Germany and then back again in Greece. The fumes of these fires reached the prison where the members of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire are imprisoned, who with a joint letter greeted this action of Sole-Baleno Cell.
This letter delivered the message that Conspiracy of Cells of Fire does never give up, but lives through every subversive attack against the existing system. This proved to be an excuse for further persecutions to the already imprisoned members of the CCF about the incitement of actions regarding the Phoenix Project, something that proves that those in power feel daunted by the anarchists who don’t obey neither in captivity.
Through this video you will meet the imprisoned members of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, as it is their voices that you are going to hear, achieving even like this, a form of escape.
Furthermore, through the book “Our day will come” the story of our plan to escape from prison is unfolded, which after all never happened. Through this story, it seems that the ceaseless agonies for freedom and for anarchist action can never be suppressed and captivated. That’s why the authority is relentless with those who demand on their own, with their own rules, the wild freedom of the unlawfulness. And this was proved by the arrests of family members of the CCF which were reviled in the media and imprisoned. It took two hunger strikes to set them free with terms that constitute exile, as they can’t even visit their loved ones inside the prison. This time now they’re in trial in which they cannot even attend.
For us it’s a fact that the authentic anarchist relationship is beyond the legal-illegal separations and in that way it will always find ways to bring comrades together.
That’s why we feel that we are among you and we also feel dominated by the same complicity in the conspiracy of the unstoppable insurrection worldwide. A complicity that here in the Greek territory we share with more and more comrades, which by pressing on the basic imperatives of Black December now they meet through Insurrectional connection between theory and action.
And so, the Black December passes on the torch to a lively anarchist process, a platform of coordination that promotes the autonomy and the diversity of anarchist action and which expects to overcome the national borders and to meet with other anarchist collegialities and individualities everywhere. We participate in this action because we love challenges.
From Greece to Chile…

Received from blackdiamondprisonersupport:
To all Revolutionary prisoners and Anarchist comrades:
After my imprisonment in 1988 for armed robberies in California, I became politicized through participation in the 1991 Folsom Prison Hunger Strike. After more than a decade in solitary confinement in Pelican Bay SHU, where interacted with members of the Black Guerrila Family (BGF), Aryan Brotherhood (AB), and Mexican Mafia (EME), I had become deeply involved in political struggle with the prison abolition movement. I was convicted for Prisoner Resistance actions in two 1995 attacks on an Associate warden at New Folsom state prison and a Sacramento District Attorney prosecutor in the courthouse, I was beaten and tortured in multiple ‘cell extractions’ by armed teams of pigs. I was sentenced to multiple 25 years-to-life terms in state prison. (more…)

Reivindicación de amenaza a párroco de iglesia Los Sacramentinos
La iglesia y sus mutaciones a lo largo de la historia ha logrado prevalecer como símbolo y ejecutante de poder en el mundo, con pequeñas reinversiones han logrado que su moral y divina autoridad sigan siendo legitimas, permaneciendo así como forma de control para la humanidad. La sangre derramada por la inquisición en su época es reemplazada hoy por cánones morales, rutinas de comportamiento que no son más que el reflejo de una sociedad enferma. Heteronormatividad, supremacía del hombre por sobre todo, monarquías, justificación de la explotación humana y animal, vicios como machismo, pedofilia, el poder llevado a la escala más pequeña, la imbecilidad legitimada en más imbecilidad, y por supuesto no podría estar ausente el castigo más “duro” al que se puede someter a un bastardo pederasta: Una vida de oración.
A lo largo de la historia la iglesia siempre ha sido un blanco de ataque para quienes luchan contra el poder. No podemos olvidar como Mateo Morral atentó contra los reyes católicos en el año 1906. Acá en Chile el ataque tampoco ha sido la excepción, en el año 1915 el poder montó una cacería contra compañerxs anarquistas tratando de buscar a los responsables de ataques dinamiteros contra conventos religiosos. La Brigada de la Muerte en la España de 1936 saqueaba iglesias, profanaban tumbas de sacerdotes y asesinaban a los que se mantenían vivos por salvaguardar el fascismo en pequeños pueblos.
En la actualidad en Chile estas acciones han continuado, distintos células insurreccionales han bombardeado iglesias con cargas explosivas e incendiarias. Hasta en protestas han sido blanco de ataques, por ejemplo: La Iglesia de la Gratitud Nacional ubicada en plena Alameda. Su puerta principal fue incendiada por insurrectxs en una manifestación el 25 de agosto del año 2011. Esta nuevamente vio las llamas el 23 de mayo del año 2015 en la conmemoración por la muerte del anarquista Mauricio Morales, y días después, el 28 de mayo -nuevamente en una manifestación- sus puertas fueron alimentadas por el fuego anarquista.
Sin más, mediante este correo electrónico reivindicamos el envío de una carta a Rafael Cáceres Olave, párroco de la iglesia Los Sacramentinos en los días previos al juicio que enfrentaban lxs anarquistas Mónica Caballero y Francisco Solar en España acusadxs de distintas explosiones en iglesias adjudicadas por el Comando Insurreccional Mateo Morral. La carta contenía un mensaje por nuestrxs compañerxs y balas. Elegimos a este sujeto por ser párroco de la iglesia a la que Mónica había sido acusada de atentar en el denominado Caso Bombas en Chile.
El incendio, el ataque, la amenaza contra cualquier representante de la iglesia y el poder esta plenamente justificada. Tenemos las armas y nuestra voluntad para atentar contra ellxs. Sus días de jolgorio han acabado.
Derribando su historia, falsa moral, poder y autoridad…
Nos erigimos y gritamos fuerte:
¡Mónica Caballero y Francisco Solar a la kalle!
¡Muerte al estado/capital/iglesia y que viva la anarquía!

Santiago: Noise bomb detonated outside highway management company Vespucio Sur building in Santiago by FAI-FRI / Bomba de ruido contra empresa consecionaria de autopistas (Chile)
Sunday, March 13th, 2016
English translation via insurrectionnews:
“This silent, instinctive coordination of solidarity not only causes a great inconvenience to normal life at different points in the world, but also strengthens our ties, making it clear there are no borders and that we do not need leaders or vertical structures to attack several bars in the same cage.”
Words from compas in Brazil claiming an arson attack in solidarity with Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar
Early on Saturday March 12, we detonated a noise bomb outside the ‘Vespucio Sur’ highway management building in the city of Santiago. We decided to make our objective clear and carry out the action at a time when the area was free of passers-by because we do not consider it desirable to harm people who have nothing to do with the targets of our attacks.
We do not consider the struggle against civilization to be distinct or external to the struggle against all forms of authority. We identified the highway management companies as being important arteries that gives life to the network of domination, facilitating the advancement of civilization and enriching themselves via the imposition of an urbanism that is servile to the interests of power.
Both the present and past history show us that the germ that leads to authority has also developed in communities that existed prior to civilization and has also manifested itself in groups that have remained outside or against civilization. That is why our struggle is essentially ANTI-AUTHORITARIAN. This is why we feel it is important to distance ourselves from the self-proclaimed ‘eco-extremist tendency’ that has defended the indiscriminate attack that is contrary to the idea of being ‘against all authority’ and denounces international solidarity with imprisoned companeros who are related in word and deed to insurrectionary anarchy. Such ideas are neither an ‘evolution’ or ‘more radical’ but are in fact quite the opposite. We have no interest in engaging in virtual polemics with them, we prefer dialogue with our companeros via action.
Our companeros are those who position themselves in their lives and through their actions as enemies of all forms of domination and put into practice their solidarity with companeros who remain dignified and combative even inside the cages of power.
…Companeros like Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar, who have elevated our insurgent spirits with their serene and defiant attitude before the Spanish courts. The international solidarity will not end once the trial is over!
…Companeros like Javier Recabarren, a young anarchist insurgent who died after being hit by a bus in March 2015.
…Companeros like Sole and Baleno who were found dead in the cells of the Italian state on March 28, 1998.
…Companeros like Jonny Cariqueo, a young anarchist who died from the beatings by police officers who arrested him after the Day of the Young Combatants demonstration on March 29, 2008 in the Pudahel district.
…Companeros like Joaquin Garcia who on March 09 injured Alvaro Corvalan, former chief intelligence officer of the dictatorship with a blow to the face inside the maximum security prison.
…Companeros like the irreducible anarchists of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire who are currently facing trial for their attempted prison escape.
With our companeros we will continue to strengthen our actions and sharpen our ideas.
Following in the footsteps of Severino, Lambros Foundas and Mauricio Morales…to multiply anarchic / anti-authoritarian cells of multifaceted action!
Against all leaders.
Against civilization and all forms of authority.

“Esta coordinación silenciosa, instintiva y solidaria no solo provoca un incomodo en la vida normalizada de distintos puntos del mundo, sino que fortalece nuestros lazos que dejan claro que no existen fronteras, que no necesitamos cabecillas ni estructuras verticales para atacar varias rejas de la misma jaula”.
Palabras de compas de Brasil reivindicando ataque incendiario en solidaridad con Mónica Caballero y Francisco Solar
La madrugada del sábado 12 de marzo detonamos una bomba de ruido en las afueras de la empresa concesionaria de la autopista “Vespucio Sur”, ciudad de Santiago. Decidimos actuar en un horario libre de transeuntes para dejar claro nuestro objetivo y porque no consideramos un acto sublime el dañar a personas que no tienen que ver con los objetivos de nuestro ataque.
No concebimos la lucha contra la civilización como algo distinto o externo a la lucha contra toda forma de autoridad. Identificamos a las empresas administradoras de autopistas como una hebra importante del tejido que da vida a la red de la dominación, facilitando el avance de la civilización y enriqueciendose con la imposición de un urbanismo servil a los intereses del poder.
La historia, el pasado y el presente nos muestran que el germen y ejercicio de la autoridad también se ha desarrollado en comunidades que han existido antes de la vida civilizada y tambien se ha manifestado y manifiesta en grupos que se han mantenido fuera o en contra de la civilización. Por eso nuestra lucha es esencialmente ANTIAUTORITARIA. Esto nos obliga a marcar una importante distancia con una autodenominada “tendencia eco-extremista” que ha defendido el ataque indiscriminado, se desmarca de la idea de estar “contra toda autoridad” y reniega de la solidaridad internacional con compañerxs presxs afines en palabra y acción con la anarquía insurreccional. Tales ideas no son para nosostrxs una “evolución” o “algo más radical” sino todo lo contrario. No nos interesa levantar polémicas virtuales con ellxs, preferimos dialogar con nuestrxs compañerxs a través de la acción.
Nuestrxs compañerxs son quienes se posicionan en su vida y en sus actos como enemigxs de toda forma de dominación y ponen en práctica la solidaridad con lxs compañerxs que se mantienen dignxs y en pie de guerra aun estando en las jaulas del poder.
…Compañerxs como Mónica Caballero y Francisco Solar, quienes han elevado nuestro espíritu insurrecto con su serena y desafiante actitud ante los tribunales españoles. Que la solidaridad internacional no cese una vez terminado el juicio!
…Compañerxs como Javier Recabarren, pequeño insurrecto afín a la anarquía muerto en marzo de 2015 al ser atropellado por un bus.
…Compañerxs como Sole y Baleno, quien fue encontrado muerto en una celda del Estado Italiano el 28 de marzo de 1998.
…Compañerxs como Jonny Cariqueo, joven anarquista muerto tras las golpizas de policías que lo detuvieron luego de una marcha por el Día del Joven Combatiente el 29 de marzo de 2008 en la comuna de Pudahuel.
…Compañerxs como Joaquín García, quien el 09 de marzo hirió con un golpe en el rostro al ex jefe de inteligencia de la dictadura Álvaro Corvalán en la prisión de máxima seguridad.
…Compañerxs como lxs irructibles anarquistas de la Conspiración de Células del Feugo, que en estos días enfrentan el juicio por su intento de fuga.
Con nuestrxs compañerxs, seguiremos fortaleciendo nuestro accionar y afilando nuestras ideas.
…En la senda de Severino, Lambros Foundas y Mauricio Morales… ¡A multiplicar las células anárquicas/antiautoritarias de acción multiforme!
Contra todos los jefes.
Contra la civilización y toda forma de autoridad.
¡MUERTE AL ESTADO Y VIVA LA ANARQUÍA!

On Tuesday evening, March 8th 2016, we went with banners, flyers and sprays outside the Spanish Embassy in Athens (on Dionysiou Areopagitou Street, in the Makrygianni district) in a minimum display of solidarity with captive comrades Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar, who stand trial in Madrid.
The banners read: “All laws are terrorism – Freedom for Mónica and Francisco”; and: “A life of combat – Prisoners to the streets – Freedom for our bodies – Madrid, 8-9-10/3/16”. Walls of the embassy building were tagged with: MONICA Y FRANCISCO LIBRES (“Mónica and Francisco free”). Among the slogans shouted (mostly in Spanish) were the words “Mateo Morral: Presente” – as well as “Javier Recabarren: Presente” in view of the week of actions in Chile in memory of the 11-year-old comrade.

Letter from Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Urban Guerilla Cell : ‘For Monica and Francisco’ (Greece, Spain)
Friday, March 4th, 2016
Regarding the international call of solidarity for Monica and Francisco we are sending these few words, written with our hearts in complicity…
From 8th to 10th of March the trial of the comrades Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar takes place in Madrid’s High Court. They are accused of an explosive attack at the Basilica del Pillar in Zaragoza. The claim of responsibility was signed by “Insurrectional Commando Mateo Morral”, which according to the indictment belongs to the Coordinated Anarchist Groups that constitute the Spanish division of Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI/IRF).
The arrests of Monica and Francisco at the 13th of November 2013 were just the beginning of a series of anti-anarchist expeditions of the Spanish State (Operation Pandora, Operation Pinata). Their target was the friends and comrades of these 2 imprisoned anarchists, as well as anarchist collectives and squats. More than 40 people were arrested.
On the 28th of October 2015 the Spanish authorities decided to extend the remand of Fransisco and Monica for 2 more years in the midst of constant transfers under the custodial regime FIES 3 (special custodial conditions). The district attorney has already suggested 44 years of imprisonment to each, while in her venomous peroration, she used the international terrorism hysteria, after the Paris attack from ISIS, and she even compared the anarchist cells of action to jihadists!!!
Monica and Fransisco were already in the “black list” of the authorities, from their former imprisonment in the Chilean prisons because of the “Bombs Case”…
We are not lawyers to talk about the evidence of this case… but we know that a bomb in a church is a liberating action… Every temple is a monument of the defeat of Man.
Thousands of robe-wearing scarecrows are making loads of money by putting to sleep willing crowds of believers. They are selling a spot at their fake heaven, while they themselves go around in ironclad limos, private jets and luxurious yachts.
They are offering crumbs of philanthropy; at the same time their personal bank accounts are overflowing with money in banks where they are themselves shareholders…
They are merchandizing “Hope” in order to be able to manipulate the fear of the economic crisis, of the existential dead ends and of the dissimilitude.
They are preaching resignation and blind submission, in order to hide the fumes of the child pornography scandals and the plague that prevails in their social circles.
For this reason, we choose to be profane against the pious people…
Every time a church is blown up, freedom obtains some meters of earth above the
debris of the explosion.
Monica and Francisco won’t be alone in the court. Every revolting heart will pulsate at the rhythm of their hearts.
Our bet is to synchronize our hearts with our actions to take back our freedom… for Monica… for Francisco… for everyone…

CCF Escape Case: “The perpetual move towards freedom…” by Christos Tsakalos of the CCF / FAI-FRI (Greece)
Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016
“It’s like playing a game with marked cards… You know that the odds are against you, but you keep playing… What for… but in order to continue the game… And to find others in the future to win the game… This is our heritage… ”
On February 15 the trial for the escape plan of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire began. A total of 28 people are being tried, including our relatives and other people who have no connection to the case.
As Conspiracy of Cells of Fire we have taken on the responsibility for the plan and its practical/technical preparation (weapons, explosives, rockets, stolen vehicles) found in the hideouts of the organization.
But the answer to what led us to the decision to escape, the judges and cops won’t find it neither in the weapons nor in the explosives or the decrypted messages found.
Anyone can find the answer as long as he listens to the rattling of the chains worn on him, chains baptized as freedom. A “freedom” which exchanged our life with cables, devices and screens… a “freedom” wearing the mask of a happy slave… But there is nothing real behind the mask…
Life is being strangled by the blackmail of the financial tyranny, the underpaid sweat of labor dungeons, the batons, tear gas and bullets of repression…
Meanwhile, the skies are raining death with bombs that turn entire countries into mass graves, small children washed up dead on the shores of the Aegean and thousands of people deserted in concentration camps…
At the same time, the lie is turned to truth from the journalist’s propaganda, technology controls our moments and emotions, the spectacle flashily dresses our loneliness, and the Western man becomes victimizer and victim of his amnesia, as he forgot what it means to live free. This is the answer to not only why someone should escape from prison, but also to become a fugitive from the legal life of an obedient being…
These thoughts are the abettor of our getaway. If we could, we would dig the walls even with our own nails to escape and to dig up the arms for the cause of freedom and revolution. And no matter how many of those attempts fail, or how many heads break onto the prison bars, at the end the bars will bend.
Because the stocks cannot be counted neither with weapons nor with explosives but with the belief that this world must be demolished, to let freedom blossom.
Both the judges and cops know us to be stubborn… That’s why they chose to take our relatives as hostages. To blackmail us emotionally and wrest our silence. But there will never be a cease fire between us and power…
The judicial authorities in 10,000 pages of files, try to make their lie a more convincing lie and call 20 witnesses (half of them executives of the anti-terrorist service) to confirm this. They accuse my mother, Evi (wife of my brother) and Christos (brother of the comrade C. Polydoros) as members of “the terrorist organization CCF”.
Their conviction has already been ordered from the palaces of power. This is a sample of the arrogance of a power that believes it’s playing without an opponent.
This trial is a poll of the struggle… In short, we must violently interrupt the onslaught of an iron repression, which, since it can not make us kneel, aims at our people.
But the challenge is not only to subvert the judicial coup that blackmails us through the persecution of our relatives, but also to transfer the fear to the homes of the enemy. Where they think they are invulnerable. And if the tracks of repression marching are already reverberating… it’s time for our own weapons to be heard.
“One day we will have to gamble for everything”, against all our yesterdays of postponement, without hesitation to stand abreast our executioners… it’s us or them…
Absence deletes people.. but there are those who are missing in exile or confined in one kilometer of “Freedom” and are present in our hearts… People just like Athena, Evi and finally Christos, because today to remain human is by itself an act of courage..
Our day will come…
Christos Tsakalos – Member of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire / F.A.I.

Reivindicación de ataque incendiario/explosivo contra Banco Santander. La Cisterna. Chile, 2016.
A lxs insurrectxs, a lxs revolucionarxs, a compañerxs afines y cómplices: asumimos la absoluta responsabilidad del ataque destructivo llevado a cabo durante la madrugada del día jueves 25 de febrero de 2016 con un artefacto incendiario/explosivo contra la sucursal del Banco Santander ubicada en Avenida José Miguel Carrera casi esquina Avenida Fernández Albano.
Con una mezcla incendiaria compuesta por napalm y bencina dentro de un bidón plástico, y adosados a él cinco cartuchos de gas butano-propano, todo detonado gracias a un doble sistema de relojería configurado para manejar el tiempo necesario que nos permitió retirarnos del lugar y entorno sin contratiempos ni sorpresas pese a ser una noche particularmente asediada por contingentes policiales bajo la burda estrategia del control preventivo masivo. Ante éste contexto, caracterizadxs y decididxs logramos nuevamente avanzar y ridiculizar sus medidas represivas concretando así la destrucción anteriormente planificada.
Saliendo al paso del aparecido subrogante de turno, jamás hemos pretendido iniciar o contribuir a un debate “democrático” ni dictatorial ni popular eso deben tenerlo más que claro, la historia así lo ha demostrado y nuestro presente aporta y nutre la continuidad de la guerra contra el Estado-Capital. Transitando en éste permanente conflicto hemos decidido responder al llamado solidario con Francisco Solar y Mónica Caballero, prisionerxs en España desde el año 2013 y prontos a iniciar el juicio en su contra que ansía la sepultura de lxs compañerxs con varias décadas de cárcel.

‘Circle of Individualists for Anarky’ & ‘Grupo Kapibara FAI-FRI’ claim responsibility for arson of Andrés Bello University in Santiago (Chile)
Monday, February 22nd, 2016
Translated from Spanish by Palmer Amaranth
“Civilization is the war that some humans have unleashed against nature a few thousand years ago in order to increase their own power. This war continues today. A system of domination increasingly powerful and invasive, thanks to the support of its technological control devices, but which has failed to eliminate from the face of the earth the resistance of certain individuals, of some not yet civilized communities, of the wild which is reborn in every place abandoned by humans. All is not yet domesticated, wrought, alienated. Tangible signs of this are the countless attacks against authority and civilization that happen every day in different parts of the world, keeping in mind that we come to know only a small part of these attacks.”
People look at cell phones, other people look at more cell phones, it is an agreeable atmosphere for our intent. Meanwhile, someone delivers letters and documents, no one makes eye contact, access to the building was pretty easy, our previous observations give us the assurance. The first floor is at our mercy, the first barrier has fallen and there is only 10 meters to go.
