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'Communization: The senile decay of anarchy (or re-inventing anarchy)' – Fragment of the unpublished pamphlet “FAI Reloaded” by the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire : Imprisoned Members Cell (Greece)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)
Friday, April 17th, 2015
Inter Arma received and translated:
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.

Proje ‘Phoenix’ Somut eylemin Atlantis’ine giden yolu işaret eden gizli kalmış haritanın açılmasıdır. Interzone’nun yanan şehirlerinin ötesinde varolmuş bilinmeyen ve kaybolmuş kıtadır. Kesintisiz otonom saldırının anarşist ilkeleri, Enternasyonalizm, Devrimci Dayanışma, eylem, diyalog, fikir ve örgütlü gayri-resmiyetle (enformel) yaratılmıştır. Dünya genelinde çeşitli doğrudan eylem gruplarının birbiri ardına gelen saldırılari tecritin sessizliğini kesintiye uğratıyor ve tekno endüstriyel sistemin hapishane toplumuna karşı karşı-saldırıya geçiyor.
….Phoenix kendi küllerinden doğdu ve korkakların sessizliğini alaya almaya, Prometheus ateşini ezeli isyancılara sunmaya geldi…..
…Sizinle konuşacak bir kelimemiz dahi yok çünkü herşeyi ateş açıklayacak…..

“El Regreso de la Conspiración de Células del Fuego desde las Cenizas”
El “Proyecto Fénix” nace como un gesto solidario dedicado a Alfredo Cospito y Nicola Gai, del “Núcleo Olga FAI/FRI” que asumió la responsabilidad del ataque armado contra Roberto Adinolfi, empresario nuclear de “Ansaldo Nucleare”, y además como una iniciativa internacional de ataque, comenzando en Grecia con la colocación de un artefacto explosivo contra la Directora de la Prisión de Korydallos.
La expansión de las acciones enmarcadas dentro del proyecto se desarrolla a lo largo y ancho de distintos territorios donde la práctica insurreccional pasa de la teoría a la acción, en absoluta consecuencia con las palabras de quienes se declaran en Guerra contra toda Autoridad y el Poder. A su vez, es un incandescente foco revolucionario que insta al diálogo y al debate entre distintos individuxs organizadxs de manera informal y difusa que dan forma al ataque permanente y minoritario.
La práctica del internacionalismo anárquico es uno de los cimientos del proyecto, es el momento donde el ataque autónomo encuentra un campo en común que une, nutre y potencia distintas realidades y tensiones, apuntando y calibrando en su alma la persiste confrontación contra lo existente. (more…)

With new reports by snitching cop journalists, an effort is being made to target comrades who come occasionally in contact with the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. In this case, they try to locate comrades from the UK who, as reported by the cops, publish an insurrectionary anarchist magazine there. They want to investigate what comrades from abroad traveled to Greece on specific dates. Also, they take into account the importance of the presence of FAI cells in the country and report that a group of Greek cops will travel there to inform their colleagues. This is a witch hunt which now targets comrades abroad as well. The case of the escape of the members of CCF becomes the perfect alibi, after several months of media propaganda, for cleaning up and hunting comrades which the cops already have in target.
Phoenix Project 2015: Attack against animal exploitation company by 'Arsonist Anarchist Attack – Fire and Consciousness Cell – FAI/IRF'(Chile)

Phoenix Project 2015: Attack against animal exploitation company.
For human, animal and earth liberation (Chile)
Day by day, minute by minute, power is maintained and reproduced in the social relations of all those who accept this order based on the exercise of authority, domination and exploitation, and in all institutions, companies and machines that allow their normal development, never forgetting the voluntary action of power dignitaries and his accomplices: businessmen, politicians, police and citizen that defend power and submission, who strive for the status quo to run it and to be maintained.
When we decide to fight authority in all its forms and expressions, the struggle for total liberation makes sense, because it includes the various scenarios in which the power runs its domain. Our fight does not segment, it integrates, and so, to fight for total freedom implies also fight against State, capital, speciesism, hierarchies, specialization and varied expressions of authoritarianism.
And despite the efforts of the Chilean State to eliminate ideas and practices of revolt, direct attack by anarchic action groups still continues. (more…)

Video: Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Phoenix Project – An account of the FAI/IRF Project 'Phoenix' (Black International)
Sunday, April 12th, 2015
English subtitled version of the film giving the account of the early part of the Phoenix Project, international project of sabotage and attack with over a dozen hits in a variety of different countries.
Dedicated to Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai, Olga Cell FAI/IRF, who took responsibility for the laming of CEO Roberto Adinolfi of Ansaldo Nucleare.
“We are here, where everything starts now.”
The Project of ‘Phoenix’ is the unfolding of a hidden map marking one of the routes to the Atlantis of practical theory. An unknown and lost continent that exists beyond the edges of the burning cities of the interzone. Created through action, dialogue and ideas and organised informally with anarchic principles of permanent autonomous attack, revolutionary solidarity and internationalism. A sequence of attacks by different radical direct action groups around the world, breaking the silence of isolation and striking back again against the prison societies of the techno-industrial system.
The imprisoned members of CCF are charged with instigation for the attacks, Spyros Mandylas and Andreas Tsavdaridis were arrested and charged for act #4 in the project, sending a parcel-bomb to the former commander of the anti-terrorist agency, Dimitris Xorianopoulos, whilst Christos Rodopoulos is reportedly accused of the mailing of the parcel bomb to Dimitris Mokkas, chief prosecutor in the CCF case, as act #6.
The Phoenix project is now renewed through the 2015 attacks in Chile, Czech Republic and Greece, with the comrades within the territory of Czech Republic initiating the campaign “Let’s destroy repression“. The story of the Phoenix continues to be written…

Athens: 'FAI – Solidarity and Revenge Cell' take responsibility for an incendiary attack against local offices of SY.RIZ.A. (Greece)
Thursday, April 9th, 2015
Inter Arma received and translated:
Today, anarchist hunger strikers are on the 38th day of hunger strike. The ongoing struggle targets all anti-insurrectional laws, which constitute the legal armor and the punitive arsenal of the democratic regime. A fight which concerns not only the imprisoned comrades but also anarchists outside prison who fight daily by all means against the enemy, as they are next on the application list of the repressive agenda.
The new government coalition with SY.RIZ.A. in its center, walks the traditional repressive path of social democracy, which has made the system’s assimilation and repression a science. Next to the targeted police and legal repression it puts a wide troupe of academics, artists, leftist journalists and other clowns who systematically slanders, distorts and degrades the struggle and its subjects. At the same time, this new caste of disgusting former PASOK and current SY.RIZ.A. voters that rushed like sheep to vote their new savior blurred from his leftist mirrors, participates like a fifth column in this slandering campaign.
Unlike the more blunt right-wingt system managers, the left government having grown in the core of petty politics (the left) is familiar with this game. So, while the ridiculous Panousis (who probably still bears a grudge against anarchists because of the “care” he had received from some comrades some years ago on this favorite academic step) makes grand, military press announcements, a part of the party apparatus (youth, civil rights movements, etc. ) has assumed the role of internal opposition and the maintenance of government links to the infamous movement which honored it with its votes.
This struggle, as the one during the strike of comrade Nikos Romanos, was an excellent opportunity to test the resilience and nature of anarchists in Greece, on several levels. Apart from the usual imaginary concept of “counter-information”, according to which those who two months ago elected the government of SY.RIZ.A. and the right-wing mob that was coiled by the New Republic, AN.EL. and Golden Dawn parties, would suddenly support anarchists and especially on an issue that does not concern them at all (there is not even half a social demand in this strike, only collateral benefits for various categories of criminal prisoners), the occupations that either ended up useless and problematic or tried to turn the struggle towards irrelevant directions (it’s the irony of life that during the period that this “class struggle-turn” started, in Chalkidiki. the metalworkers were beating the people opposed to the mines, on behalf of Bobolas(1)) and activism intended only to draw the attention of the media, there was also a major wave of violent actions and aggressive interventions across the country.
The only language the enemy understands, is the all-out and multi-form attack, with words and actions, against him. It is the language of the deconstruction of his ideological arsenal and the attack against his infrastructure. It is the texts, flyers, banners and posters, overflowing with hatred. It is the damaged vehicles and buildings, burnt cops, terrified judges and prosecutors and tattered streets in the center of the decaying metropolis.
So, at dawn of Wednesday 08/04, we placed an incendiary device at the entrance of the local youth offices of SY.RIZ.A. in Kessariani, a few blocks away from the local police station.
Let SY.RIZ.A., its politicians, its movement leeches and its sleeping voters know that the macho attitude of the winner deflates quickly, especially when the victory was achieved in a court that we neither played nor will ever play. For us, there is no hallowed leftist veil and historical self-worth which protects you. And if not anything else, we will always remember that you are the government because of which one of our comrades nearly died. You should wish for him to leave the hospital strong and standing.
We salute the comrades of FAI in Greece and abroad who participated actively in the struggle and also the rest of the anonymous or eponymous conspirators who went on the offensive in whatever way they chose to attack. Hopefully, this momentum will continue both in this struggle and in the many to come.
We wish a speedy recovery to the brothers of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and Angeliki Spyropoulou and strength to the anarchist prisoners who are still on hunger strike. You are not alone.
The war continues
Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI) – Solidarity and Revenge Cell
PS1: As we were informed by the mainstream media, the promised transfer of the police units that served as security details for high-profile targets progresses rapidly, and little by little, they are all gathered around the home of the Prime Minister. We, for our part, wish him the best. More empty streets for us.
PS2: Our warm congratulations to the anarchists who voted for SY.RIZ.A., we hope for them to have the dignity to refrain from the solidarity movement for the hunger strikers.
Translator note: Bobolas is one of the most powerful capitalists in Greece and a beneficiary from the exploitation of the earth’s plunder through mining in that area.
Athens: Incendiary attack against the central offices of Microsoft by 'Combative Anarchy – FAI/IRF' (Greece)

ACTION PLAN FOR AN INTERNATIONAL ANARCHIST COUNTER-ATTACK
“LET’S DESTROY REPRESSION”
Combative Anarchy claims responsibility for the attack against the central offices of Microsoft in Greece. The comrades who took part in the action, placed the incendiary device composed of gas canisters and gunpowder and safely left, humiliating the security measures of the building once again. Microsoft is a multinational colossus of the techno-industrial complex, one of the most powerful companies of its industry and inextricably linked to the political and economic system. The attack at the cutting edge of the capitalist domination in techno-science and its murderous tentacles means the attack against the mechanization of life itself. The revolutionary war is a basis around which the constant conflict with the existent is being built, an attempt for the total liberation of our lives from the chains of the state, the capital and their society, which expand to the space-time continuum as the oppressed ones rebel against their oppressors.
On March 2nd, anarchists and political prisoners started a hunger strike, targeting to fight against the repressive framework of the state, the counter-terrorism unit and the judges. At the same time, the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and anarchist Aggeliki Spyropoulou announced the beginning of the hunger strike until death, demanding the immediate release of their relatives, who were revengefully detained by the schemes of the police and judicial mafia. Today, with many comrades hospitalized in critical condition, with CCF comrade Mihalis Nikolopoulos being threatened by permanent physical damage, despite the victorious outcome of his organization’s fight, with the “left” managers of power having thrown the mask of humanism in the garbage, the anarchist fight should speed up the counter-attack and lead the state in retreat. The fight of our imprisoned comrades and the new facts on the social and political field, after the election of SY.RI.Z.A., should be evaluated in the direction of revolutionary development. The multiformity of experiences and the collective effort is the focus of this evaluation, which lays the foundation for the material formation of our anti-state conspiracy against power.
Now, it’s in our hands to project the strategic necessity of the anarchist urban guerrilla warfare, by sabotaging the operations of the social machine, blowing up the walls of apathy and releasing the rebellious intentions. Weaving on the thread between theory, action and target, continuing the solitary walking in the paths of freedom, with our minds firmly attached to all our comrades who are locked up in the cells of democracy. We have just started. We are planning sabotages, we are harassing the enemy, we are experimenting with methods and practices, we are organizing our generalized counter-attack against the world of power. This act of ours is a contribution to the comrades of Czech FAI/IRF suggestion, who burned a police car and suggested the creation of an international action project with the name “Let’s destroy repression”, modeled on the “Phoenix” Project.
Moreover, it is our contribution to the days of international solidarity with the imprisoned comrades in Chile. Comrades, this explosion was for you as well! Strength to the comrade Aggeliki Spyropoulou and the prison cell of the Conspiracy who, with their unyielding and victorious fight, will soon see their beloved ones free again. Quick recovery comrades, your perseverance is a source of inspiration for the subversive spirits of our times. Let our fire become a hearth of warmth for the anarchists of the Network of Imprisoned Fighters and the member of Revolutionary Struggle, Nikos Maziotis, who stopped the hunger strike before our text was released.
SOLIDARITY WITH ALL THE ANARCHIST PRISONERS!
GOOD LUCK AND STRENGTH TO EVERYONE WANTED BY THE LEGAL ORDER!
WE ARM, ORGANIZE OURSELVES AND ATTACK!
LONG LIVE THE COMBATIVE ANARCHY!
