On Wednesday, June 27, at dawn, we attacked the headquarters of Microsoft with a vehicle-bomb. We drove through the main entrance and detonated the bomb van in the building, with about 150 litres of gasoline as a gift. Throughout the course of the operation the team ensured that no one would be in any danger, and, contrary to the assertions of several newspapers, they did not use firearms to immobilize the security personnel. It was an act of war against the widespread insidious silence and captivity generated by this modern world.

“Caught in prison-society…”

Growing up and wasting time and every minute of our lives in the great prison, in the city where they suffocate million people with anxiety and stress. It’s crazy and nonsense that so many people are crammed like zombies, like canned sardines in the giant cities. In factories, in their jobs, in artificial parks, in front of televisions, in the ranks of the unemployment offices, at checkouts. To have and to blackmail.

The rates here are predatory, blackmailing dilemmas, more suffocating than ever; psychiatric drugs
off-the-shelf and anti-depressants cure every patient of the modern lifestyle.

Asylums, psychiatrists and psychologists, prisons, are they not cages like the filthy flats and apartment blocks, who in their own cannibalistic way, imprison human emotion, vitality and energy?

Are not the crowded malls, noisy streets and the constant drone of horns of those who are rushing to gain a minute and get faster to work, school or important meetings?

Is prison not all around you? (more…)

– Against the domestication of the individual, resistance and direct action.
– Youth, if you do not fight, no one will fight for you.

Brief communique:

As anarchists of nihilist tendency, we vindicate revolutionary action as a tool for our political-emancipatory project, we propose subversive urban guerrilla war as a form of struggle in the streets spaces, likewise for gain territory in our lives, in the face of the control of the authoritarian State.

We are revolutionary anarchists who reject and disregard the ranks of classic anarchism, likewise we reject the ancient strategy (end in itself) of accumulation of forces. We break with the old schemas and -isms, and we function by means of our inquietude and our personal I (which we temper with collective labor in order to accomplish according to vital goals, this being a false problem and not a contradiction at all).

As youth uprooted with expectations of wanting to free ourselves, we not only see our enemy in capitalism and the State, we also see it in the humanizing values of society, in its defense of the indefensible, therefore, we also seek to dis-articulate it. We are the uncontrollables, those who give free reign to socio-political destruction, those who see in the precarious and wild youth, in the immigrant youth and and youth of lower social class, the destabilizing explosion adequate for dismantling the bosses’ world and to entomb the State, we see adequate capacity for creating a tension of civil-revolutionary war by means of the tactic of the anarchist urban guerrilla and the conflict between the oppressive State and the revolutionary youth. We are working for the articulation of a constant influence in our spaces of the streets, that can create the situation of socio-political war against civilization, of razing to the ground capital’s schemas without any consideration.

We want to forge a generation of wild youth, disposed to destroy the city and the capitalist economy. From the Barcelona suburbs, we make a call to the rest of the youth for you to assume the nihilist branch of anarchism, to investigate your perceptions and to unite, under a black anti-authoritarian fist, let’s subvert the old order. Let’s go beyond.

Reciprocal solidarity:

Although at the time the actions did not have a concrete spirit of solidarity from the start and only sought to spread revolutionary action and revolt, we want to change the initial plan and to dedicate all of these actions (except the solidarity of April 6 with Stella Antoniou) to Gerasimos Tsakalos, Panagiotis Argyrou, Christos Tsakalos, Giorgos Karagiannidis, Alexandros Mitroussias, and Kostas Sakkas who at this time have started a hunger strike. Comrades, we send you a raised fist and a fervent revolutionary greeting.

Death to social peace!

For the return of terror to its gears!

Anarquistas nihilistas.

Attack against President Karolas Papoulias’ home in downtown Athens (Greece)

Monday, February 6th, 2012

From athens indymedia via contrainfo:

4 February 2012

Late on Saturday evening, February 4th, a group of hooded comrades carried out a direct action outside the house of the President of Greece, in Asklipiou Street, throwing sticks and stones on his residence. They were chased in Zoodochou Street, Exarchia, by motorcycle police units who fired flash-bang grenades. All comrades fled running.

Responsibility claim:

On Saturday, February 4th, at 20.00 in the evening, 60 solidaritarians attacked the personal guard, the guard booth and official vehicles outside the residence of the president of democracy Karolos Papoulias. Papoulias’ personal guard fled, and flyers were thrown at the spot in solidarity with the anarchists Stella Antoniou, Kostas Sakkas, Giorgos Karagiannidis and Alexandros Mitroussias.

The solidaritarians withdrew in coordinated pace from the place, which is located at short distance from the police headquarters. A few minutes later, a DELTA police motorcycle unit appeared, that used flash-bang grenades in an effort to reach the solidaritarians, but with no success.

Yesterday’s action was held in solidarity with Stella Antoniou and the other comrades accused for the same case, as a first response to the denial of her application for release on bail.

These actions will continue until Stella Antoniou is released from prison.

IMMEDIATE RELEASE OF ANARCHIST STELLA ANTONIOU

FREEDOM TO ANARCHISTS SAKKAS, KARAGIANNIDIS, MITROUSSIAS
