Today, September 22, 2011 a group of comrades paid a visit to the Chilean embassy in London in solidarity with Luciano ‘Turtle’ Pitronello, on the day he is due to appear in court to be formally charged concerning an attack on a bank in Santiago which resulted in him being seriously wounded.
A long banner was immediately unfolded outside the embassy as other comrades tried to enter. The embassy officials refused to open the door and within seconds sirens could be heard screaming. Five motorbike cops arrived, followed shortly after by a red cop car with armed special cops. Everybody in the small group stood their ground, shouting ‘FREEDOM TO LUCIANO PITRONELLO; ALL STATES ARE TERRORIST; HANDS OFF MAPUCHE LAND’.
This attracted the attention of neighbours, building workers and passersby, most of whom were curious to know who Luciano was and why we were there. Many took leaflets and actually read them, more than a few wishing ‘Good luck’!
As they left, the comrades continued to display the banner, walking (followed by the cops on motorbikes) along the streets housing some of the biggest mafias on the planet and their henchmen – Buckingham Palace, Scotland Yard, Parliament, Westminster Abbey, etc etc. Some tourists snapped pictures of the banner and took leaflets.
Greetings, Luciano, from some rebel spirits in London, and also from a few strangers who for a moment were jolted out of their daily routine. Your strength and courage are inspiration and instigation.
“Forward everyone! And with arms and heart, sword and pen, dagger and gun, irony and curse, theft, poisoning and arson, let’s make… war on society! …” (Dejacque)
THE LEAFLET HAND OUT TODAY:
FROM PINOCHET’S DICTATORSHIP TO PINERA’S DEMOCRACY
All over the world young people are fighting for their lives, their future. They have been born into a reality that can no longer conceal the massive gulf between the minority active in plundering the resources of the planet and the great masses who are being made to pay for their voracious greed and the consequences of related investment and banking procedures.
All this is carried out within the context of democracy, its rhetoric, moral imperatives and daily deception by the media aimed at perpetrating this swindle. People are brainwashed into accepting integration and collaboration in this ‘society’ as the only possible life perspective, while at the same time, due to the very needs of the mechanisms of post-industrial capital, they are excluded from doing so from school onwards.
In Chile this process has come to the attention of the world thanks to the massive protests that have been taking place over recent months and are still going on. Everybody knows about Pinochet’s ruthless dictatorship and are happy and relieved at the thought that Chile, like the other ex-dictatorships of Latin America, are now well-established democracies. But the people of Chile are no longer prepared to suffer this new form of oppression in silence. The Mapuche people have fought ceaselessly against the theft of their land and plundering of its resources to feed international capital. Since 2004 anarchist and anti-authoritarian action has grown explosively, in the streets, neighbourhoods and universities, showing the rejection of authority, the State and Capitalism. Over recent months university and school students have occupied their colleges and taken to the streets in an attempt to overturn years of neo-liberal education policies such as mass privatisation, and massive cuts in education budgets. In struggles which extended to teachers and school pupils as well as students all sorts of tactics have been tried alongside the mass demonstrations in the streets in which two young people have been killed by the police. There have been massive arrests and huge public support for the demonstrators, including the banging of pots and pans by residents of Santiago.
In this context many diverse groups have decided to pass to the offensive, attacking banks, police stations, churches, shopping centres and other structures of oppression and exploitation. In this way they are recognising who the real enemies are and where they conceal themselves, at times boldly entering the panoptical urban labyrinth to strike them, only to disappear into the night. These small attacks are carefully planned not to hurt or wound anybody, only to damage the structures of power.
But one freezing dawn of the month of May 2009, a young anarchist Mauricio Morales, is killed when the explosive charge he was carrying blew up in his hands. Following his death that was grotesquely exploited by the media, police invaded his surroundings and circle of comrades. After years of investigation the diverse police organisms had been incapable of finding the people responsible for the attacks. It takes its revenge by attacking 14 people and accusing them of forming an illicit terrorist association and carrying out the majority of these attacks in a sensational media-propelled ‘Bombs Case’ which is visibly crumbling after continuous struggle by the accused and their comrades.
In spite of such attempts by the forces of repression to silence these forms of struggle, there are still those who use all the instruments possible to fight against power.
Sadly on June 1, 2011, a terrible accident stains a new date in the calendar with blood. That cold dawn anarchist comrade Luciano Pitronello, 22 years, takes the terrible blast of the shockwave of a homemade bomb placed in a bank.
Luciano is severely wounded. His right hand and three fingers of the left one have been amputated. His eyes are seriously damaged and he can only distinguish indistinct forms. His hearing has been damaged and he has had dozens of skingrafts to his body. He continues to struggle, pushing his body to heal and facing the moral and judicial consequences.
In fact, today, 22 September 2011, Luciano (Turtle), will face the formalization of the charges against him in front of the Chilean judges. Still convalescing from his wounds and wearing a special suit for burns, Luciano will have to appear before a crowded room not only of judges lawyers and police, but also the mercenary journalists. The revenge he will receive is double – judicial and exemplary in order to give a clear signal to all those who go beyond the submissive citizen routine and the peace of cemetries imposed by normality. Power yearns to turn the life of our comrade Turtle into the example of punishment, to instill fear and stagnation into all the dissident sectors of the democratic theatre.
Immediate freedom for Luciano Pitronello!
Love and solidarity. Your rebellion has not been lost in this ocean of filth.
Anarchists in solidarity

For the spreading of action
Anarchist and anti-authoritarian dissidence has grown explosively in Chile since 2004. In the streets, neighbourhoods and universities a presence has increased without a doubt, showing the rejection of authority, State and Capitalism.
In this context many diverse groups have decided to pass to the offensive illegal struggle against the State.
In this optic they have attacked various bank agencies, police stations, churches and amusement centres of the bourgeoisie and the rich with explosive devices.
Each one of the attacks is claimed in political communiques with names of dead fighters we want to remember. They are carefully planned not to hurt or damage anybody, only the structures chosen to be attacked.
This fact is not insignificant, because there is evidence of a precise recognition of what is the enemy, and where it hides itself, not confusing it with anyone. This demonstrates in the long term, a projectuality of struggle and not the simple desire to appear, as happens with militarists drifts, the adrenalin fetish, or ego-driven action.
So, the attacks follow one another, increasing in boldness and complexity over the years. Power is tricked from the very interior of the panoptical city, which is why it is made to feel the hysterical rage sweating out from the ministerial palaces. So the hunt begins, the judicial but also media persecution unfolds. Known anarchists, ex- political prisoners and those who have transformed practical vindicated solidarity into a continuous way of life, are threatened and persecuted by pro-government and official means.
After years of investigations, interception of telephone calls, pursuits, shootings and search points, the diverse police organisms are incapable of finding the people responsible for the attacks.
But one freezing dawn of the month of May was to make the police lighten their step. The 22 of May of 2009, anarchist comrade Mauricio Morales (27 years) is killed. The explosive charge that he was carrying blows up in his hands, killing him in the act.
He was on his way to the gendarmerie school, an institution that has links with the jails of the whole country, directly responsible for the confinement of hundreds of thousands of prisoners.
Following the death of the comrade Mauri the police immediately dart towards his surroundings and circle of comrades. So, the anti-cultural spaces that Mauri visited are pointed at and attacked, the same day and over the following months.
Houses searched, comrades kidnapped, okupas (squats) are evicted and the circles are narrowed. Beyond the accuracy or falsity of the conjectures of power, what is certain is that those with relations of affection and comradeship will be struck and harassed.
Anybody that has shared something with the comrade Mauri and who does not accept remaining in silence as a form of memory, will be immediately swell the list of suspects.
In spite of the adverse context, there are still clenched fists, comrades that do not shut up, that are still not resigned… there are those who smile with each overflowing act of rebelliousness. The pain is terrible, but many attacks change the pain into rage. The permanent scar will remind them every day of the loss of the comrade.
The attacks follow and the look of shame on the powerful takes a walk exasperated, because direct action even arrives two blocks away from the president’s home. The anarchists are laughing and they are laughing loudly.
Power will take revenge for its incapacity to discover those responsible for the actions, attacking 14 comrades, prisoners, under the gross and fictitious accusation of forming an illicit terrorist association. This group would be responsible for at least 30 of the attacks produced in the capital city.
The investigations, denominated by the press the “Bombs case”, forcibly and capriciously regroups 14 people who did not know each other, that have no links in some cases, even politically.
The charges that weigh on the comrades are a gross and ignorant blow, because historically anarchists have never have regrouped around a leader or cupola. The illicit association, as a concept , attacks the basis of anarchist horizontal organization, the only real thing about the application of this charge and concept is the increasing of possible sentences.
Power is smiling through the press, because revenge has been unleashed on a diffuse area that questions the very existence of authority. It’s raining insults and the fear is spreading, making many retreat and stay in silence and remaining silent as their only answer.
In spite of that, not everything is silenced, there still exist those who use all the instruments possible to fight against power.
Sadly, on June 1, of 2011, a terrible accident stains a new date in the calendar with blood. That cold dawn comrade Luciano Pitronello, Turtle, (22 years) takes the terrible blast of the shockwave of a homemade bomb placed in a bank. The comrade Turtle advances wounded and in shock, while the security cameras record those crucial minutes. The fire devours his clothes while his steps are disoriented by the pain.
The press arrives at the spot almost immediately. Like the good mercenaries that they are, they point their cameras with morbid intention to hurt the feelings of Turtle and his dear ones.
This is the way that the comrade is filmed : wounded and naked, covered in gunpowder and screaming in pain. These images will be repeated continuously as the best advertisement of the misery that represents capital and its culture of arrogance.
“A comrade is wounded and in the hands of the police, that is reason enough to support and show solidarity”….
Turtle is transferred to a hospital, where his right hand and three fingers of the left one are amputated from him. His eyes are seriously damaged and he is only able to distinguish indistinct forms. His hearing has also been damaged, and he has had dozens of skingrafts of his own skin.
He is badly wounded and his condition is serious. Even so, he manages to go forward, to push his body in spite of facing a very complex situation, as much in terms of health as in the moral and judicial consequences.
Almost 4 months after Turtle’s accident, the comrade left the clinic where he was being held, and transferred to the home of his mother, where he remains under police and family monitoring.
Sadly, in all these months, not only has his nuclear family collaborated with the police organisms giving the names of Turtle’s circle of friends, but they have also publicly discredited the ideas and way of life of our comrade Turtle.
This lamentable fact reminds us of other experiences, where even brothers or couples decided to collaborate with the police, due to fear or for economic reward.
Very different from the combative and supportive attitude that other parents and families who have come out into the streets for many years, demanding the freedom of their dear ones or rescuing their names from oblivion.
Respect for the ideas and decisions of their sons and daughters is essential for those who do not become collaborators of their relatives’s enemies.
Turtle’s partner, with whom he has a 3 year old daughter, has been supportive of the comrade, but also has been the target of the revenge of the press and of justice. Her home has being raided and her personal life has been put on display as a way to break her morale.
Face to face with the enemy
This September 22, the comrade Turtle will have to face the formalization of charges in front of the Chilean judges. That day Capital, the Chilean State and its powers, will wreak revenge on the comrade. Revenge that has been meticulously orchestrated and prepared, for every detail strikes him accurately.
Comrade Luciano, still convalescing from his wounds and wearing a special suit for burns, will have to appear before a crowded room not only of judges, lawyers and gendarmes, but also of mercenary journalists. Who will no doubt photograph each of his wounds and film any difficulty the comrade has in moving.
Therefore the revenge that he will receive is composed of two factors, one entirely judicial, because the comrade will face a court who represents the bourgeois and democratic social order. A court that will not hesitate a second in sentencing him to one long sentence in some modern extermination centre. With this, looking to give a clear signal to all those who decide to go beyond the submissive citizen routine and the peace of cemeteries imposed by normality.
But a second aspect, no less important, of the revenge orchestrated by Power against Luciano, has to do with the level of media exhibition.
The morbid spectacle that they will erect in that room of the court, has the aim of destroying the comrade, to make him collapse politically and psychically, to attack his moral and annihilate it. As also to strike those close to him and who are like him and support with him.
Power yearns to turn the life of our comrade Turtle into the example of punishment, to instill fear and stagnation into all the dissident sectors of the democratic theatre.
By punishing Turtle, they will try to punish all those who refuse to swallow the story of the social pact; there are already groups, anarchists, who are taking upon themselves an open offensive against capital state/, with its symbols and organizational forms, like also all the groups and individual students that in insurrectional ways are taking to the streets and leaving in them the sweat and the blood, after long days of confrontations with the police.
All of the context lived recently on that piece of land named Chile, constitutes one more of the scenarios of the social war like in various parts of the “globe”.
The overflowing of the “citizen protests ” of the uncontrollables, once again surpasses with deeds and words the desired social control and sense of normality that is installed through mass means.
It is in this same path of struggle and action, of persistence and courage, that Turtle took words and dreams, turning them into arms, attacking in spite of the possible consequences that we all know.
The State/Capital through its legal/mediatic/policial institutions is trying to establish its authority unquestioned. Public defamation, repression, jail and bullets will be some of the varied weapons that they will use with in the object of breaking the will and the actions of the irreducible ones that do not look for dialogue, because they are consumed in war against all authority.
In that sense fear, paralysis, passivity or silence concerning the situation that faces Luciano means to hand oneself over to the enemy. Our resignation against what happens with the comrade will give a victory to power and its control mechanisms.
The role of the journalists/police in the conflict.
The State, shamed by the lack of concrete results to give the people charged with the explosive attacks, is elaborating ridiculous theories, that they are trying to sustain with police stupidity, mass media and massive indifference.
Lamentably, Turtle’s accident grants them the perfect occasion to create an immense apparatus in the style of the old Roman circus to apply its laws.
In this process of public lynching not only police and judges have become jumbled, but the great mass media, who play a fundamental roll. Contributors, accomplices, collaborators and central place in the power relationships.
Not only do they work openly with the police, in addition they do not scrimp in efforts to publicly and morbidly exhibit the bodies of the comrades in the prisoners’ dock, exhibit their wounds or their dead bodies.
They exhibited our brother Mauri, showing his dead body, causing deep pain to his dear ones and comrades. They invented a supposed interview to false comrades of Mauri, eager only to discredit him and systematically attacked his surroundings of affection and commitment. They validated with infamous news articles, all the repressive game of the bomb case.
The insult that we have received from the journalists cannot be forgotten, it cannot be standardized and ingenuously believed that they are just the excesses of precise people. They have attacked, they have harmed our dignity and the privacy of our brothers and that humiliation must be returned, blow by blow, until they back down.
It is the work of the press, more and more committed in the direct fight against those who take up the offensive, that has generated gross stereotypes of those who fight. Their news articles instill paranoia and demonisation, generating concepts like “ vandals ”, “ soulless ” and “ violent ”, to mention a few.
In these days they give a prize to the good citizen, decree the minute of fame, for the stupid idiot ones that collaborate with the control organisms, or assume reactionary positions as informers in the student mobilizations.
But the footmen journalists have not stopped there, they took a further step in persecuting, coarsely denouncing and defamating the comrades in incredible ways. They have arrived at the point from which journalists like Max Frick and F.A.V.P. appear as protected witnesses in the Bomb case.
Their testimonies, plagued with lies and personal revenge, are trying to condemn the comrades in one of the most media orchestrated cases of recent times. For their declarations these two idiots receive protection and money from the State… their lives get fat and comfortable, while our brothers undergo confinement.
Our answer: solidarity
It is against these facts and against the police attack, that we must make clear that revolutionary solidarity, internationalism and active memory are substantial and indissoluble elements in all the process of struggle.
To the comrades who are in the front firing line receiving the blows of the power, we, from this small written gesture, shout with all our lungs: solidarity, memory and action!!!
All those directly facing Capitalism are our brothers, and we shout tears for those no longer physically with us. We have not forgotten them, we are all with you and in all the possible ways, always present, eternally present.
This is the moment in which the slogan “nobody is alone in the social war”, must acquire a special practical meaning. It depends on us, certainly, and on our real will to realise the common effort of solidarity.
All actions are extremely valuable and urgent: letters, pamphlets, discussion, agitation, bombs and fire, are feeding the indomitable spirit of our comrades.
For that reason the call is to organize solidarity this September 22. We must make our brother and comrade feel by means of all type of gestures, that the fighters of all parts of the globe are sharing this hard trial with him. Because the fight for freedom is one, inside and outside. Forgetfulness and silence… are characteristic only of traitors.
Debate, spread, attack, not one step back in front of the enemy.
Fire and more fire for Capitalism, their defenders and their false critics.
A fraternal greeting and total support to comrade Luciano at this difficult moment and those that may come.
Rebel spirits: they are not satisfied with being affected by what happens to Luciano… from words to acts, the actions will make us brothers, no matters how dark the night appears.
Active solidarity, with the comrades in Chile, Greece, Switzerland, Mexico, the USA and all the accomplices of the revolt in each corner of the world.
Freedom to all political prisoners! Fire to the jail, flight to the rebels!
To the streets for the young people assassinated during the student protests: Manuel Gutierrez and Mario Parraguéz, we do not want bourgeois justice, we look for revolutionary execution …..
In memory of our dear comrade Claudia Lopez, young anarchist assassinated by the police on September 11, 1998 in area of La Pincoya.
Black September of 2011.

Do not say that we are few
And that the challenge is too big for us
Would you say that two or three patches of clouds
Are little thing in a corner of a summer sky?
In a moment they spread everywhere…
Lightening then flashes, thunders crashes
And rain falls all over.
Do not say that we are few
Just say that we are.

By this piece of writing we, the comrades of ‘FAI / Artisans Cooperative of Fire And Similar (occasionally spectacular) / International Revolutionary Front’ and of ‘FAI / 20th July Brigade / International Revolutionary Front’ claim the parcel bombs of March 2011, which caused lieutenant Alessandro Albamonte of Folgore [division of the Italian army] to be seriously injured; the parcel bomb that slightly injured two employees of Swissnuclear; and the parcel bomb sent to the Koridallos prison [in Athens, Greece], in solidarity with our sisters and brothers of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire / FAI / International Revolutionary Front. This piece of writing comes after a meeting called by the comrades of ‘FAI / Sisters in Arms of the Mauricio Morales Nucleus / International Revolutionary Front’.
Recently, in the major cities overlooking the coasts of the Mediterranean sea, the streets are animated by more and more passionate protests and demos by the oppressed who are no longer keen to suffer the oppression of dominion: from Greece to Tunisia, from Spain to Libya, the fuse continues to burn. We met in one of these streets and decided to deepen the debate on what is going on in the environment of insurrectionist anarchism. A dissenting voice was heard in the general optimism of the comrades who see diverse and new hotbeds of struggle emerging in a vital international and informal context. The voice was that of a comrade of the ‘Sisters in Arms of the Mauricio Morales Nucleus’ who pointed out in anger how the communiqués claiming the above mentioned actions had been censured. They were 12 claims addressed by ordinary post to various realities of the anarchist movement in Italian language. None of them was published so that a vital communication for the international growth of the informal debate was impeded. Today we know that this censorship is just the desperate reaction of an old anarchism infected with the bureaucracy of meetings and with the obsession of the struggle in society, which partial struggles have transformed into stupidity.
A new insurrectionalism is being born from the ashes of the old and glorious individualist anarchism. As our sisters had written in their claim never arrived: ‘for the first time in history an informal organization, a federation of informal groups on a worldly level, becomes flesh by bleeding and drawing blood’. The informal organization is no longer abstract fantasy, a soliloquy in the mouth of a bunch of comrades more or less cultivated, more or less sincere. In these last years, in different parts of the world the new nihilists stirred worries to the States and fear and hostility to the official part of the anarchist movement. The new anarchism will make its strength out of destructive imagination, and it will reinforce its coherence in action.
Many things have happened since we launched the proposal for an ‘Informal Anarchist Federation’. Today, thanks to the sisters and brothers of the ‘Conspiracy of Cells of Fire’, who have re-launched it, the ‘FAI / International Revolutionary Front’, the ‘FAI / Global Network’, the ‘International Network of Action and Solidarity’, the ‘Informal Anarchist Federation – Global Network’ has become reality with their one thousand names. A reality that needs to grow up especially now through the instrument of informal organization on a worldly level and thanks to a federation of action groups. Dozens and dozens of cells, nuclei, movements, individual comrades, united by a clear and strong horizontal and widespread pact of mutual aid, wage war on the existent in a chaotic and destructive way.

It’s 10 years now that we have been trying with perseverance to make this organisational project concrete, although within our limits. Of course our growth will not be linear and progressive, there will be ups and downs, long and short periods when everything will be silent and then it will start again stronger than ever in some country we wouldn’t imagine. Through their will and strength, each group and individual will give their contribution to action and communication by helping all the others to fix more precise targets.
Repression has already struck hard in Greece. Our sisters and brothers of the ‘Cells of Fire’ continue to struggle from within the walls of prison and to contribute to this organisational assessment through their writing, in an excellent way. We are one single thing without knowing one another, in our diversities we are the hand that will break the chains. At first revolutionary solidarity will bond us through what some anarchists stupidly define ‘fictitious movement’, as they can’t understand it is exactly in solidarity that any revolutionary project defines itself.
In the course of our history, we of the Italian FAI have always acted without the mediation of ‘social’ struggles, such as those against FIES [extreme isolation units in Spanish prisons, used to cage anarchist prisoners and other ‘uncontrollables’] or against CIE [immigration detention centres], and we have never put ourselves in an above-to below demagogic position. We have always acted as individuals without wanting to indoctrinate anybody. We destroy what destroys us, and what doesn’t kill us strengthens us.
The only limits we put to our action are of ethical nature. We have made a choice with our action in this world of included and excluded. We are not interested in a society divided in classes, we don’t want any dictatorship of a class over another, we want anarchy! Millions of microcosms where each individual can experiment themselves freely. Something very similar to what we experiment through action every day by elaborating the best way of organizing ourselves without renouncing our individual freedom. It is exciting to grow in this organisational experience along with sisters and brothers we’ve never seen and probably will never see. It is exciting that individuals who don’t know one another come to the same conclusions in a given moment in history.
We don’t know how the FAI / International Revolutionary Front will evolve, possibilities are enormous and cannot be foreseen. It could extinguish all of a sudden or grow exponentially. Our growth will be mainly qualitative, a growth deriving exactly from the unimaginable potentialities of the informal organization. It will take long before the FAI / International Revolutionary Front gives the best of itself, before the informal organization creates real problems to the status quo. The anarchist war of resistance started more than a century ago. With its glorious moments: the Paris Commune, the epoch of the propaganda by the deeds, the epoch of the big revolutions; and with its less glorious moments: unionism, non violence, libertarian municipalism, everything we call compromise.
Our trajectory will be long and characterized by a continuous communication through action. Communication is the cornerstone of all our informal structure but it is also its weak point. Until a year ago our communiqués – actions could be read in the front pages of all major Italian newspapers, this helped us to communicate. Today power realizes the danger of this communication (it was inevitable) and it censors not the action but the communiqué, the message. We decided to make recourse to electronic mail in order to quicken the spreading of this piece of writing and to reach as many realities of the anarchist movement as possible. Our choice is also due to the scarcity of publications in Italian language that are willing to give space to the new that is happening in the anarchist movement on an international level. We think an action must be claimed and explained in order for it to be replicated. Otherwise power would pollute it and distort its meaning by making it sterile: we know this very well as we have experienced it many times. A destructive action remains a very beautiful thing anyway, even if it is not claimed. And one can do it even only for the simple pleasure to do it. It’s always good to do something right. But for us this is not enough, we want this system to collapse. The more an action is reproducible, the bigger its real destructive potentiality; the more the rebels understand that concrete resistance exists the more they will be pushed into action. In the past and still today someone of us happened to individually take part to unclaimed actions along with comrades who obviously didn’t belong to FAI / International Revolutionary Front. In so doing we provided technical data that could save the very precious life of the comrades and sometimes we also learned new techniques.
We of the Italian FAI continue to run all the roads that can lead to the revolutionary path. Clashes in piazzas, popular struggles, more circumscribed projects of radical struggle… all contribute to enhancing our practices of attack. It is ten years we have been acting undisturbed. Power strikes everywhere with more and more unbelievable repressive operations, but none of us has been hit so far. We are really sorry for the comrades who are being arrested and investigated, but it is better that the real culprits stay free so that they can strike over and over again. Perhaps some of us will fall but new groups will come out. In that case we hope we will be able to act like the sisters and brothers of the ‘Cells of Fire’, who continue with courage and coherence their struggle inside the walls of a prison, which will blow up one day, we are sure.
Critique must be active and alive. Critique and self-critique must save us from being self-referential as this would surely lead us to the fictitious, going nowhere.
As we said in the past, it is better that affinity groups don’t know one another so as to fight repression more effectively. But sometimes we happen to recognize comrades of us in the movement, which bring about risks but also immediate perspectives, such as gaining more technical abilities, more chances to get hold of weapons and explosives, more chances to support comrades compelled to live as clandestine. We read ‘The Sun Still Rises’ of ‘Conspiracy of Cells of Fire’ very carefully, and we came to the conclusion that the three key points of the informal agreement of the second generation of the ‘cells of fire’ can become the key points of the ‘FAI / International Revolutionary Front’. These three points mirror our main characteristics.
The first: destructive direct action as an indispensable and essential element. Such action can take the form of throwing a molotov as well as committing murder, without any hierarchy of importance, each group or individual will decide as they best like, in the respect for their own revolutionary ethics, which will certainly always exclude hitting at random. In our view, this point will have to give rise to a new nihilist and anarchist guerrilla, thousands and thousands of fires against capital everywhere.
The second very important point is that never are we to become spokespersons or representatives of anybody. We represent ourselves only, women and men in a perennial struggle against the existent, political power, technological power, the power of capital risking to erase life on this planet. We obviously have no hope in any social class imposing its ‘dictatorship’ over another class, which always ends up with the dictatorship of the ‘representatives’ of that given class. We express no solidarity towards those who are subdued, who are exploited but who don’t move a finger so that they also contribute to our oppression. What characterizes us most is the refusal of proxies and of ‘representation’. Our revolt is individual and it is this that makes our anarchism revolutionary and nihilist through the organisational instrument of the informal organization.
The third point: international revolutionary solidarity. The comrades who join this informal agreement will have to launch campaigns of struggle, which will be taken over by other groups of the ‘FAI / International Revolutionary Front’, according to their methods and timing. Three simple and direct points, which in our view mark a step forward in our informal organization, by widening the founding FAI document ‘Who we are: open letter to the anti-authoritarian and anarchist movement’ [the letter can be found in ‘Escalation#1’] in its ‘anti-social’ and ‘nihilist’ vision.
Everything concerning the ‘FAI / International Revolutionary Front’ is in chaotic and constant evolution, starting from its many names and definitions. This is just the beginning, the ‘Conspiracy of Cells of Fire’ is the motor of this explosion of revolutionary vitality. It is the propulsive motor of an informal federation, which is growing and which has already surpassed the borders of nations, which we anarchists wish to abolish. Any organisational piece of writing, analysis and critique that come out of the FAI / International Revolutionary Front will never be the definite one. Our informal federation is in constant evolution. The comrades of the International Revolutionary Front scattered in the world already contribute to the analysis and growth of this project by setting fire here and there. Our imprisoned sisters and brothers are our biggest strength, their analysis opens our eyes, our anger and hatred for their arrest give us strength. After all, our Informal Federation is a constant and never – ending organisational assessment not in preparation of a far away world revolution, which we don’t know when and if will happen, but with a view to the quality of our existence itself, which today, here and now, fully realizes itself in the armed struggle against power.
We of the Italian FAI propose the sign of the ‘Conspiracy of Cells of Fire’ as a flag of this struggle, the 5 arrows of different length and aiming at different directions hitting at power united. This indicates the myriad of groups and individuals of the FAI / International Revolutionary Front who hit without respite with various grades of intensity but united by a pact of mutual aid. The arrows are topped with a black star with an A inside, the symbol of our anarchism; and above the star the name of the group of the International Revolutionary Front claiming the action. We opted for this symbology because the history of the ‘Conspiracy of Cells of Fire’ has found its way into our rebellious hearts. All this, of course, if the Greek comrades agree.
In a period of world crisis on all levels, to create an informal anarchist structure means to stop waiting for events to happen and to go towards revolution. In Arab countries regimes are collapsing to give space to other regimes, democratic ones this time. The world super-powers can easily influence the events, Europe is on the verge of collapse, we must not stay still or linked to old organisational schemes which have already given the worst of themselves in the past. To create an Informal Anarchist Federation means to bear actively on the struggles of the excluded all over the world, it means to bear actively on the struggle that nature undertakes every day against criminal human ‘technology’. To bear directly on all this through concrete attacks widespread all over the territory. These attacks have never been missing but if they are united by an international informal network based on mutual support they become more visible and virulent, and their spreading and subversive potentiality are multiplied. As we have already said we don’t believe we have the truth in our pocket, but we are convinced that in certain moments in history ideas impose themselves by themselves. Today the moment has come to give a concrete contribution, which perhaps will make the difference. Ours is a beautiful challenge, the most beautiful challenge a revolutionary anarchist can ever launch: to throw one’s heart beyond the obstacles and see what happens.
We of the FAI / Artisans Cooperative of Fire and Similar (occasionally spectacular) / International Revolutionary Front and of the FAI / 20th July Brigade / International Revolutionary Front join the campaign of solidarity that the comrades of the FAI / Sisters in Arms of the Mauricio Morales Nucleus have started with the parcel bomb sent to the Koridallos prison. Once a year we will hit in solidarity with our sisters and brothers of the Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire until they are free again. The dozens and dozens of years in prison they were sentenced to will turn into a tragic boomerang for the Greek State. Year after year the interests of this State will be hit in Italy, each time stronger than the previous time. We invite the other groups and individuals of the FAI / International Revolutionary Front scattered in the world to do the same.

Tonight two vans belonging to the energy multinational “GDF SUEZ” were set on fire in the neighborhood of San Juan Bautista.
The techno-industrial system has been imposed on our lives in a brutal way, to colonize our bodies and minds, life has been totally artificialized. New developments, such as nanotechnology, biotechnology, robotics… stand as new forms of domination in which the State spends billions, knowing that this is to secure its perpetuity. They sell us all these projects as the best in the best of all possible worlds, but the only thing that they secure is the continuation of the existing order; the only thing they secure is the murder of the earth, the total dependency on technology, a world where there is no space for autonomy, for freedom; and the murder of millions of people so that here in the first world we can enjoy a “peaceful” life where alienation now rises to aberrant levels.
For all this to function it is necessary to murder the earth by means of extracting so-called “resources” for the production of energy. For this we attacked the company “GDF SUEZ,” and the attacks will continue against all that which enslaves us; also for our sisters in England who, having understood that the misery in your lives is caused by the world of commodities, have fiercely launched yourselves to destroy them — from here, strength in your struggle, and may the insurrection that these days ravages England spread everywhere.
FREEDOM FOR BILLY, SILVIA, COSTA AND MARCO!
FREEDOM FOR THE ANTI-AUTHORITARIAN PRISONERS INCARCERATED BY THE GREEK STATE!

Saturday, August 6th, 2011
The 5th of October has been set as the day that the trial of the Revolutionary Organization – Revolutionary Struggle will begin. The trial will take place in the court room of Koridallos prisons.
Eight accused will stand trial, who according to a recent order of the Council of Appeals will be tried for participation in the organization.
Accused in the case of the Revolutionary Struggle are: N. Maziotis, P. Roupa, K. Gournas, Ch. Kortesis, V. Stathopoulos, S. Nikitopoulos, K. K., (not arrested he is on the run) and M. Beraha (K.Gournas wife).
The first three accused, Maziotis, Roupa and Gournas have taken responsibility for the organization and remain imprisoned, but in mid October the 18 month detention period expires. The rest of the accused are free.
Kortesis, Stathopoulos and Nikitopoulos were released from prison on terms recently, after two decisions of the council of Judges of appeals, since the Supreme Court applied a recantation on the first and another was made that ratified the decisions of the appeals judges.
The charges of each individual concern the felonies of constitution and participation in a terrorist organisation, supply manufacture and possession of explosive materials, explosions and numerous attempted homicides.
Revolutionary Struggle has made many attacks, among which the rocket launcher attack on the American embassy, on January 12th 2007 and the armed attack on cops on Bouboulinas street on January 5th 2009.
Revolutionary Struggle are thought to be responsible for the following attacks, all in Athens:
* September 5, 2003: Bombing at courthouse.
* March 14, 2004: Bombing at Citibank subsidiary in Psychico neighborhood.
* May 5, 2004: Bombing at police station in Perissos neighborhood.
* October 29, 2004: Bombing of police buses.
* June 2, 2005: Bombing at Labor Ministry.
* December 12, 2005: Bombing at Finance Ministry in Syntagma Square, near Parliament.
* May 30, 2006: Attempted assassination of Georgios Voulgarakis, former Minister of Public Order, now Minister of Culture.
* January 12, 2007: Wasp 58 LAW rocket attack on United States Embassy.
* April 30, 2007: Shots fired at police station in Nea Ionia neighborhood.
* October 24, 2008: Bombing at Shell offices in Palaio Faliro neighborhood.
* December 23, 2008: Shots fired at riot police bus near Athens University in Goudi neighborhood.
* January 5, 2009: Shots fired at police guarding Culture Ministry in Exarcheia neighborhood. One riot cop critically wounded.
* February 18, 2009: Car bombing at Citibank headquarters in Kifissia neighborhood. Bomb fails to detonate.
* March 9, 2009: Bombing at Citibank subsidiary in Nea Ionia neighborhood.
* May 12, 2009: Bombing at Eurobank subsidiary in Argyroupoli neighborhood.
* September 2, 2009: Car bombing causes serious damage to Stock Exchange building.
”’The three comrades who took responsibility for the actions of Revolutionary Struggle show that fighting for what you believe in is not a task that only the “elite” can take on. Its in everyone that has suffered in the system that has been created to control us. The state knows they are the real terrorists and as long as no one is fighting back they have nothing to fear. Its time to show them enough is enough and attack it with all means available.”’
SOLIDARITY TO THE 5 ACCUSED IN THE REVOLUTIONARY STRUGGLE CASE
FREEDOM NOW TO N.MAZIOTIS, P.ROUPA AND K.GOURNAS

Statement from Revolutionary Organisation – Informal Anarchist Federation, Indonesia Section (Indonesia)
Wednesday, July 6th, 2011
325 receives and transmits:
Bandung, Indonesia – Cells of International Conspiracy for Revenge, a few days ago, have claimed responsibility by spreading leaflets surrounding the ATM BNI firebombings. The leaflet is almost the same tone as in Makassar and Manado:
“PT Indomining (Bima) has been brutally repressing the local population, Jogja Magasa International wants to evict 30,000 farmers in Kulon Progo. Farmers in Takalar are facing the threat of land-grabbing. These actions are carried out in a brutal way, including shootings, terror, sexual harassment as well as the various forms of repression that we never hear about in the mainstream media.
That’s not surprising because these capitalist-bureaucratic companies do not care about anything except making their wallet thicker!”
“Our attacking of an ATM (bank) is an important target, because banks are always involved in financing natural resources and the repression of the people in the name of capital! We have no intention of injuring anyone, the destruction of property is not violence! No mercy for the forces of repression! No mercy for the State and Capitalism.”
Got Ist Tot – Free Association of Individualist-Communists.
Salute to: Revolutionary Organisation – Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. The Revolutionary Struggle. The Chilean insurrectionists. Giannis Dimitrakis and Polykarpos Georgiades, our hearts are with you!
Long Live the Rebellion and stay free. And with this statement we claim to join the RO-FAI, Indonesian Section.

May 30 saw the publication of ‘The Sun Still Rises’, a pamphlet containing a chronology of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire attacks and the following new text by the group:
The Sun Still Rises
Knowledge chooses its project, each project is new and chooses its moments, each moment is new, but simultaneously emerges from the memory of all the moments that existed before
—The Interior of the Absolute
1. The Beginning
The Conspiracy of Cells of Fire Revolutionary Organization didn’t begin its activity from out of nowhere. It wasn’t as if a straight line had cut through space and time. It was a future crying out from the past. The Conspiracy comprised a collective synthesis, connecting the backgrounds and viewpoints of all who participated in it and drawing valuable conclusions from past experiences of subversive projects and attacks we took part in.
It represented our desire to take a step further, not to climb some ladder of informal hierarchy that fetishizes violence and its methods, but to simply advance, move forward, and explore new perspectives, making the shift from a “bunch of friends” to an organization, from the sporadic to the consistent, from the spontaneous to the strategic.

“Through the sadness of endless mediocrity that suffocates us from everywhere, I console myself that somewhere in a closet several stubborn people struggle to counteract the spoilage.” [Odysseas Elytis]
We are summoned to appear before the Prosecutor’s Office of Bologna, Italy, on June 28th in order to participate in a preliminary investigation in regard to the ‘punishable offense under Articles 110, 280 of the Criminal Code (attempt with terrorist and subversive purposes)’ of the inflammatory parcel’s postage addressed to Silvio Berlusconi. Moreover, according to the official notification of the Prosecutor’s Office that was delivered to us via fax in the prisons in which we are detained, Berlusconi himself is called to attend the process as ‘victim of the punishable offense.’ (more…)

Communique from Luciano Pitronello Incendarity Cell in solidarity with prisoners of the world (Argentina)
Friday, June 24th, 2011
From culmine, translated by war on society:
During the international week for total liberation we went to the Banco Santander Rio at Av. Gaona and Cuenca in the Flores Neighborhood, we doused two ATMs with gasoline and we left an incendiary device that then burned and destroyed them.
We share this action with those who take the decision to go on the offensive for human, animal and earth liberation.
Remembering Mauricio Morales.
For the freedom of Walter Bond, Marie Mason and Eric McDavid in the United States; Silvia, Billy and Costa in Switzerland who next month will be judged by the authorities of that country; 10 months into the bombs case, solidarity with the anarchists in Chile.
The war against this society continues in all places, in Italy, France, Spain, Mexico, etc.
Imprisoned, the comrades of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire do not collaborate with their enemies and struggle until the end.
For those fallen in combat against the forces of social control in Argentina, prisoners in the Ezeiza, Marcos Paz, Devoto prisons…
For all those who conspire in the extension of permanent conflict against the powers that dominate our lives. A fraternal greeting.
For the proliferation of attacks against authority and its properties.
Until the last animal is free, we are all prisoners.
Long live direct action that breaks with those established in the system.
To not wait; the spectacle must end; to be participants in what we desire.

4 June 2011
The following text is dedicated wholeheartedly to the Anarchist Revolutionary Theofilos Mavropoulos who with his unrepentant attitude confirmed that the Revolution does not retreat even when fired at. Also we do not forget his comrade who escaped with a cop car. Finally, we express our unlimited respect to the two comrades but also our great sorrow for the fact that the cops were not mortally wounded.
On the 4th June and while the formal amusement of the Saturday night was climaxing we carried out a new revolutionary plan. We gathered, put on our fullface masks and carried out a raiding attack with sledge hammers on T-Bank on the cross road of Panormou and Achaia street, “transforming it into a summer shop”*, in order for it to suit the climate of the days. Our target was selected based on the following criteria: We wanted to strike a target in the centre of Athens and not in an accidental spot. Firstly, its situated near the central headquarters of the Police, so that the whore cops can receive the message that, no matter how much this area is “theirs” and how many patrols they might make, our plans are always one step ahead, (keep in mind you little bastards, your patrols are being charted). And on the other, it is near the area of “mass amusement” of the shops on Panormou street and thus, were exposed to the eyes of many the broken windows.
In this way we had the possibility to show to a lot of people the way that we “have fun”.
Above all however, we carried out this attack in order to stamp an agreement. We include our own network of fighters in the wider network of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire as well as the International Revolutionary Front. Ready to give it all to the Revolutionary Crime and Widespread Revolutionary Guerrilla, we are also an internal enemy of the regime. A permanent internal threat. All these because we are tired of the void of life that is offered to us by this World through the civilization that is promoted by its society. We despise the relations of Authority and the misery of Economy. We are tired of the standardized behaviors. We are disgusted with the psychiatric clinics, prisons, schools, work, religion, but also with all the slaves that are subjugated and maintain all the above. We ought to turn AGAINST those who hurt Freedom. Not only in paper but by putting our wishes into practice on a daily basis.
We know that this decision of ours is difficult and holds for the unlucky and careless gigantic consequences, since we are going against the most difficult of opponents. With the holders of the army and science. Our heretical brains however cannot be cured neither with imprisonments neither with threats. The revolutionary remains for ever free. Until the end. Thus, with a clear conscience, we also put our hand in order to develop the International Revolutionary Illegality. Our next plans are already being examined and soon will be materialized.
LONG LIVE THE REVOLUTION – LONG LIVE THE CONSPIRACY OF CELLS OF FIRE
P.S. 1: Our unlimited solidarity to comrade Luciano Pitronello Schuffeneger who had a bomb explode in his hands that he had manufactured for an attack.
P.S. 2: A warm handshake to the “priest” who in 1997 in Albania tortured and killed a cop, set fire to another one and was arrested recently. Bless his hands!

Arson of Church in Solidarity with Marie Mason, Eric McDavid & Imprisoned Comrades of the Social War (Peru)
Tuesday, June 21st, 2011
This past 11th of June a fire was started on the side of a church which was under construction; we climbed the wall with mats in order to reach the entire wooden frame, instead of climbing the wall and going inside, we proceeded to leave plastic bottles filled with gasoline on which a sticker was placed, (alluding to the comrade fallen in combat, Mauricio Morales); and an additional amount [of gasoline] was splashed across the fence. Moments before climbing the walls again, we set fire and showered leaflets in solidarity to the eco-anarchist comrades Marie Mason and Eric McDavid; it was the same place where days before we painted slogans, while we were making an inspection of the area.
By way of this action we express solidarity with those who, like many other prisoners of the social war in the world, do not give up in this struggle; through this form we also show that our solidarity continues and will continue to be a weapon against the whole system of domination, and that those on the inside are not alone.
We do not surrender, we continue onward, we know that with intentions we do not change anything, but only with actions. Seek to live anarchy!
For fear to not destroy solidarity… for solidarity to destroy confinement!
Against the prisons of capital!
Freedom to the accused of the “Bombs Case”!
MARIE MASON AND ERIC MCDAVID TO THE STREET!
Circle of Iconoclastic Action / Informal Anarchist Federation
text of the leaflet:
INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY WITH IMPRISONED ECO-ANARCHIST COMRADES
Eric McDavid was arrested in January 2006 after being betrayed by “Anna,” a paid government informant, and was charged with a single count of conspiracy. Eric (who never carried out any action; we can say he was committed for a “thought crime”), refusing to cooperate with the State, was brought to trial, where he was sentenced to almost 20 years in prison.
Marie Mason was arrested in March 2008 after her partner turned FBI informant. Faced with life-long imprisonment if she went to trial, Marie accepted a plea deal in September 2008, admitting her involvement in an arson of an office involved in genetic engineering. In February of the following year she was sentenced to almost 22 years.
We express solidarity this June 11th with the eco-anarchist comrades who like many of the other prisoners of the social war in the world do not give up in this struggle.
For fear to not destroy solidarity… for solidarity to destroy confinement!
Against the prisons of capital!
MARIE MASON AND ERIC MCDAVID TO THE STREET!
TO FLEE FROM ALL PHYSICAL AND MENTAL PRISONS!!!

17 June 2011
“Early Friday morning, 17 June, we brought disorder to Chesterton Road, Cambridge. The HSBC bank was graffitied, its locks glued, its cashpoint trashed using glue and spraypaint. The offices of Seetech, a ‘back to work’ training company, was graffitied with the words FUCK WORK and circled As, a bike lock was used to chain the front doors and the locks were glued. We then visited the Chesterton Road JobCentre and graffitied the front saying FUCK WORK B4 IT FUCKS U and so on. We then sabotaged the cashpoints of the Lloyds TSB and the Barclays banks nearby, also graffiting both offices and gluing locks. A few other nearby businesses had their locks glued and were graffitied, including the slogan SMASH AUTHORITY, FUCK THE POLICE.
This goes out to other marginalised people, those who cannot and/or will not integrate into this sick society.
International solidarity to imprisoned fighters, including American eco-anarchist prisoners Marie Mason and Eric McDavid, also not forgetting another long term caged freedom lover Ted Kaczynski (aka FC or ‘Unabomber’).
We will not forget or give in, subversive complicities are our strength! Until all cages are destroyed…”
