“I don’t believe in rights. Life, which is all a manifestation of incoherent forces, unknown and unknowable, rejects the human artificiality of the right. Rights were born when life was taken away from us. Indeed, originally, humanity had no rights. It lived and that was everything. Today, instead, there are thousands of rights; one could accurately say that everything which we have lost we call a right. I know that I live and that I desire to live. It is most difficult to put this desire into action. I am surrounded by a humanity that wants what everyone else wants. My isolated affirmation is a most serious crime. Laws and morals, in competition, intimidate and persuade me. The “blonde rabbi” [I.e., Christ or Christian values.-translator] has triumphed. One prays, one implores, one curses, but one does not dare. Cowardice, caressed by Christianity, creates morality, and this justifies baseness and begets renunciation. […] “Society, on the other hand, modest and clean in appearance, but horribly infected with gangrene throughout its body, makes me vomit, fills me with horror and loathing, kills me.” How I envy the great Bonnot! “Il me faut vivre ma vie!” * / “It is necessary that I live my life”” Bruno Filippi

Beyond the right and the wrong…
The most important and nicest things are spoken in the simplest way. Today, though, the reality of our lives is far from simple.
So, we often note that the more complicated the words (and boring, at the same time) that “specialists” of political delivery and the “revolutionary” rhetoric alchemists use, the more uninvited their oversimplifications are.
The theorist “rebels” construe the world through the tyranny of their “obvious truths”. Their whole rhetorical calcification and their wooden words, that lulls to sleep through their undeviating dogmatism, comes to transfer “social revolution” to an oversimplified version of the eternal fight between the “good” people and the “bad” state, between the “right” and the “wrong” fairytale.
But if things were that simple, why hasn’t this fairytale, for centuries, come to an end, with the triumph of the “good” and for all of us to “live happily ever after”? (more…)

Santiago: Coordinated incendiary attacks against telecommunications infrastructure by FAI-IRF (Chile)
Friday, August 28th, 2015
I. “This instant that won’t be forgotten
So empty when thrown back by the shadows
So empty when rejected by clocks
This wretched moment taken by my tenderness
Stripped naked, naked of the blood of the wings
Robbed of eyes to remember the angst of yesteryear
Of lips to scoop up the juice of the violence
Lost in the tolling of frozen belfries.”
In the current context of recent state reforms that have resulted in increased sentences for the possession and use of incendiary devices and/or explosives, coupled with the many cases of imprisonments related to insurrectionist violence (bombings, burning of buses and incendiary actions by encapuchados outside universities), one might be made to think that there is no longer any space for offensive actions against Dominion and it’s normality, the perfect excuse for those who have always found justifications for postponing their own revolt against the existent.
However, the long history of revolts, rebellions and conspiracies shows us that the systems of domination have always been and always will be vulnerable, and that it is always possible to find space for revolt and direct attack against the structures, symbols, institutions and representatives of oppression.

“Life is a journey by parachute, and not what you want to believe. We are falling, falling from our zenith to our nadir, and we leave the air stained with blood to poison those who will come to breathe it tomorrow. Within yourself, outside yourself, you will fall from your highest to lowest point because that is your destiny, your miserable destiny. And the higher you fall from, the higher you will bounce, and the longer you will be remembered by the stone. We have jumped from our mother’s bellies or the edge of a star, and we are falling. Oh, my parachute, the sole perfumed rose of the atmosphere, the rose of death, tumbling between the stars of death. Have you heard? That is the sinister noise of closed breasts. Open the door of your soul and come out to breathe outside. You can open the door that the hurricane slammed, with only a whisper.” [Vicente Huidobro, Altazor]
On Tuesday, June 9, according to one of the many calendars of domination. Our contradictory wrists carry watches that indicate that it’s ten till two in the morning. The cold is chilling, but we’re well equipped. Long minutes walking to enter the outskirts of the industrial park Lo Boza, in the municipality of Pudahuel – a territory substantially faded by the uncontrolled advance of the techno-industrial system and the active complicity of the submissive population, which has been enchanted by this regime of hate and death. “Where the waters meet” was once home to fertile, colorful land; for the time being, it is a deposit of human waste, orderly zombies arriving early to work in the morning. The air is torn by hundred airplanes that land with impunity on the high-density concrete of the Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport, the soil is dirtied by industries that spring up faster than mushrooms in the Valdivian forest, the water is “mis-treated” by some of the largest water treatment plants in South America.

Athens: 'Combative Anarchy / FAI-IRF' takes responsibility for arson attack against SYRIZA offices in anarchist prisoner solidarity action (Greece)
Tuesday, June 30th, 2015
Combative Anarchy / FAI – IRF takes responsibility for the incendiary attack against SYRIZA offices in Kypseli. We torched the offices of these politicians opportunists as a first response to the rejection of the educational leave of our comrade Nikos Romanos and the vindictive extension of the hostage situation of the wife of the comrade of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, Gerasimos Tsakalos. The world of authority is here. In the hands of immigrants marked with numbers, in the summits of economists, the incessant propaganda of journalists, the ministries of the “left governance”, in courts, police stations, the villas of the rich. Anarchist insurrection does not aim to reform capitalism, nor stops the action depending on the political administrator of the machines of death and exploitation. The dawn of our time will come upon the ruins of capitalist society. Until then, the only thing left to us is the continuous and uncompromising anarchist struggle.
STRENGTH TO THOSE WHO ARM THEIR NEGATIONS! STRENGTH TO ALL ANARCHIST PRISONERS!
PS) During the hunger strike of the imprisoned comrades in Chile, we torched a diplomatic vehicle in Ano Pefki, wanting to heat their hearts with the fire of anarchist solidarity. Get well comrades.

During the night of Monday June 15 we attacked a car company located in the vicinity of the intersection of Vicuña Mackenna and Amerigo Vespucci avenues in La Florida by placing an incendiary device inside one of the cars that was for sale. The resulting fire caused partial damages to the car and the company.
We carried out our action in the middle of the collective patriotic alienation that was generated by the party for the Chilean national soccer team, choosing our target in advance and scheduling it in a way that made it clear that we were not interested in a random attack that could harm people who had nothing to do with our action. We acted within a few meters from a police checkpoint, demonstrating that the police do not have everything under control and that an attack is always possible.
It wasn’t just a new car that we attacked, an attack on something material was not the only goal of our action; the attack was also against the background that houses each of these machines that shares the same meaning and sense of the domination of society. It is the collections of merchandise displayed in glass cases and shelves, the accumulation of capital, unscrupulous human exploitation through wage labor, the devastation of land to plunder resources, the lust for ostentation and the nonsense of production – everything was attacked that night.

Three of the five anarchist prisoners of Operación Piñata released + 13 June day of solidarity demo in Barcelona (Catalunya, Spain)
Saturday, June 6th, 2015
On June 1 we got the great news that three of the five comrades being held in preventive detention, accused of being part of a terrorist group under Operation Piñata (including one who was already arrested and imprisoned in Operation Pandora) are being released without bail. They still have all their charges and have to sign in frequently at court, and two of them are prohibited from leaving the country.
Operation Pandora was launched in December in Catalunya, and Operation Piñata on March 30 all across the Spanish state but focused in Madrid. The operations resulted in the arrests of 26 anarchist comrades (plus the arrests of over a dozen more for resisting the raid on a social center) on anti-terrorism charges, the raids of dozens of houses and social centers, the theft of cash, and the seizure of computers, harddrives, phones, etc.

'Communization: The senile decay of anarchy (or re-inventing anarchy)' – Fragment of the unpublished pamphlet “FAI Reloaded” by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire : Imprisoned Members Cell (Greece)

Communization: The senile decay of anarchy (or re-inventing anarchy) – fragment of the unpublished pamphlet “FAI Reloaded” by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.
i) Frozen Marxism
Today’s era smells like engine oil, cheap labor sweat and naphthalene of the morality of voluntary obedience… We do not want to be defined by the culture of techno-industrial fascism, the white uniforms of scientists, the neckties of technocrats, the eager silences of ordinary people, the stupid smiles of consumers… We do not match with the aesthetics of the glass world of flat television screens, the digital imitation of the life of social media, the display windows of lifestyle, the lens of security cameras. We do not fit in the society of captivity, the police checks of our identification papers, the supervision of security guards, the laws of the judges, the locked doors of prisons. We do not settle for the average normality dictated by morality, we don’t amuse our boredom with psychotropic drugs, we aren’t covered by the coldness of empty relations, we don’t read… Marx.
Today we live to the rhythm of a generalized crisis. Our daily life is throttled from the tyranny of numbers. Our life resembles an accounting book, whose calculations always find it deficient and indebted. They overwhelm us with financial terms and definitions, one half of which are unknown and the other half of no interest to us. The wandering charlatans of all ideologies, roam from one financial conference to the other and bombard us with ramblings and often incomprehensible interviews-speeches, each of them presenting his own social antidote to the economic crisis. On the shelves of the ideological supermarket every faithful consumer will find the antidote that suits him, in all shades. There are “revolutionary” antidotes, even “anarchist” ones. In Greece, the neo-communists, ex-anarchists, mix in the cauldron of ideologies anarchist labels, with plenty of frozen Marxism, anti-imperialism and a pinch of disguised national liberation. The new tension of “serious” anarchy dresses itself in a formal way and launches the trend of anti-capitalist struggle on a red background. The rhetoric of the neo-communists – “anarchists” talks about everything. In an effort to build a social marketing of propaganda for the masses, it promotes generalizations sanctifying the “oppressed people” and “workers” who, obviously, for them are “not accountable” for their responsibilities and silences, uses covertly socially palatable national references, such as “the Greek people”, “our country” and promises “social salvation” with the coming of post-revolutionary society, preaching in the assemblies of the need for centralized-structures… It seems that some neo-communists already rehearse their future offices. Perhaps, this what they train themselves for now, selling hegemony, experience coming from age and the wisdom of a leader within the anarchist milieu.

Friday, May 29th, 2015
22/05/15 – The appeal court dropped charges of terrorism against Gianluca and Adriano.
The two anarchist comrades, held prisoner under the High Security 2 regime since 19th September 2013, had been accused of association with purposes of terrorism and subversion of the democratic order, as well as arson, aggravated theft in concurrence and defacement and soiling of private property: judicial concepts and repressive instruments to punish the 13 actions attributed to the comrades.
Specific charges remain in place, but as the charge of terrorism was dropped Adriano has been released, while Gianluca remains in prison.

From Insurrection News:
An Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI) – International Revolutionary Front (IRF) cell based in Chile calling itself Grupo Kapibara have released a communique claiming responsibility for an incendiary attack against a substation of the electricity provider Chilectra in Santiago on 06.05.15.
According to the communique a timed incendiary device containing 1.2 liters of gasoline and 400 grams of polystyrene was placed in a room inside the substation. The timing mechanism was set to activate half an hour after placement of the device but for unknown reasons activation did not occur until several hours later.
The communique states that the action was carried out in order to strike a destructive blow against the techno-industrial system in defense of Mother Earth. The communique also contains expressions of solidarity with the anarchist nihilist prisoner Spyros Mandylas held captive in Greece, the comrades Nataly, Juan and Guillermo on hunger strike in Chile and the comrades Sol, Tato and Javier, also imprisoned in Chile. Mention is also made of fallen anarchist Punky Mauri who died in 2009 while attempting to place a bomb at the prison warden’s school in Santiago, Chile.

A contribution to the international call against prisons from Chile, by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (Greece)

This is where wolves are silent because people are screaming…
10-20 of April: an international campaign of comrades in Chile, against prison. Ten days against the obeisances of those who learned to live like servants. A message of complicity. Words that escaped from the prisons of Chile, traveled thousands of kilometers away, crossed borders, police forces, censorship and reached our cells. Thoughts and meanings that became our sleepless friends to our difficult moments of the hunger strike we carried out. Where life and death stand a breath, heartbeat less away from each other, there where comradeship, solidarity and complicity give advantage to life. Words and thoughts of comrades from Chile gave us courage, tenacity and a hoard of smiles.
Against a society that accepts being marked with the mark of authority, with ID numbers, tax records, cameras, products’ barcodes, Facebook, virtual reality, monitors, here we also stand, we who refuse to be tamed. We refuse to become the obedient pets in the shop window of survival that repeats itself and looks like a slow death.
In different places and moments, different negation and insurrection, which although speak different languages, express common meanings, meet. It’s the meeting of all of us who discovered our true face when we put on a hood to attack the ugliness of this world. It’s the call of all of us who chose the sound of a bank’s window crumbling, the break and ignition of a molotov cocktail as it traverses the night as a glowing star, an explosion that blows up authority and silence of the social graveyard, a pistol arming while rising to shoot death carrying normality, as our music.
