Call to isolate 'civil anarchist' group 'OARS – Anarchist Organization for Social Revolution' (Bolivia)

Monday, April 8th, 2013

Note: For background information on this situation see these articles:

1. Anarchist Cell for Revolutionary Solidarity FAI/FRI on the recent repression
2. La Paz: Communiqué by Henry Zegarrundo, who is being held in pretrial detention in San Pedro prison
3. The May 29 Case in La Paz

This is a call-out to anarchists across the world, asking comrades to break all friendly relations with OARS, the Anarchist Organization for Social Revolution (La Paz, Bolivia).

The reasoning is simple: they are snitches, and they openly justify snitching as a part of their “social revolution.” After being arrested on May 29, 2012, four members of OARS snitched on other anarchists. Nine months later, two of the anarchists they snitched on are still being held in prison and one more is under house arrest (this third prisoner was rewarded with house arrest after also snitching). They are faced with the serious accusations of Terrorism and Attempted Murder. No evidence implicates any of the three, except for the testimony of OARS members (and later the testimony of the third detainee who snitched one month after OARS members claimed she was a terrorist).

La Paz: Communiqué by Henry Zegarrundo, who is being held in pretrial detention in San Pedro prison (Bolivia)

Monday, July 16th, 2012

From ABC Mexico via Contra-Info:

Terror seeks to impose itself through prosecution, repression and incarceration for those of us who break through its ideology of fear, an ideology reinforced by the ‘communication’ media, an ideology reinforced by those who slavishly accept it whether they disagree or not.

Power seeks the SOCIAL DEATH through incarceration, seeks to diminish an individual through the MORAL ANNIHILATION. But up until now I have not experienced any of these two ‘phenomena’ designed by the State; the only thing they have managed to do is make me feel freer than ever before despite being locked up behind these thick walls.

Incendiary attack on Bank of the Andes ATM in La Paz (Bolivia)

Saturday, April 14th, 2012

from liberaciontotal, transl waronsociety, communique:

We claim responsibility for the sabotage of an ATM belonging to the Pro Credit Bank of the Andes, located in the Miraflores area [of La Paz], which ended up totally unusable due to the fire.

There are new times of insubordination and disobedience in Bolivia.

New opportunities to re-propose and redefine conceptions of struggle for anarchy, we see from the lens of direct action and all its nuances, not from the abstracts and old reformist significations that are not only outdated but also contrary to the thirst for vengeance and destruction that emerges from the bowels, of the urgent reappropriation of our lives, not a life corrupted by money and consumption, but on the contrary, a life that soars far from its limits and its laws, complicit in every gesture with each of those who confront Power.

We defy every form of authority, we reject the phrases already made and repeated to the death by the erudite of the revolution who fly the discourse of the process of change and this disgusting anti-imperialist/anti-capitalist form of MAS [Movement for Socialism, the ruling government party of Bolivia].

We are not going to wait for them to tell us when is the adequate context for revolt, the “proper conditions” for struggle, factors that eternally return to waiting to finish with this reality. We decide to confront here and now, conscious of every action, every step that from now on will be a threat to Power and the society that collaborates and is part of the annihilation of the world in which we live.

Action in Solidarity.
Stella Antoniou, comrade imprisoned in Greece
Eat and Billy, comrades imprisoned in Indonesia.
Luciano Pitronello, strength throughout the trial we are with you.
Comrades of the CCF on hunger strike. For the constant discussion and strengthening of the FAI-IRF.

Some Wayward Nocturnals – FAI/IRF

PS. Because it doesn’t remain an isolated act. All our contempt for the converted Walter Bond — pardon… Abdul Haqq
