From 13 to 15 September, the heads of government of all European countries will meet with the Chinese government in Leipzig. This will not only be about intensifying trade relations. Rather, it will be about building a new global partnership so that the EU is not ousted from the table of the great powers in the future. The deterioration in the EU’s relationship with the USA under Donald Trump has made it necessary to find another partner to coordinate the shaping of its own global interests with the EU. The topics of the summit are therefore not only economic relations, but also foreign and security policy and – unsurprisingly – digitalisation and digital cooperation, as well as climate protection and human rights. The summit is based on strategic position papers which already began in the EU-China 2020 Strategic Agenda for Cooperation from 2013 and have since become increasingly concrete at the annual meetings. This year, not only representatives from China and the EU will meet for the first time, but also all heads of state and government.

Arson Attack on Saxon federal office of taxes and finances – No one will be able to pacify our struggle – Solidarity Greetings to the fighting companions in Exarchia
The Saxon federal office of taxes and finances (LSF) is in charge of the financial administration of the Saxon federal state and provides the juristic basis for enforcement measures and the enforcement of juristic judgments, such as forced evictions or confiscations to compensate debts. Being under patronage of the German state, this ministry performs the political agenda of the free market. The LSF is enforcing the national financial policy, which privileges companies and disadvantages the people. This policy is driven by the ideology of the “Black Zero”. The neoliberal doctrine of economizing provokes the capital’s overarching control over all social spheres. Through privatization and the cutting of taxes for major companies, any social attempt is buried completely under the logic of profit.
Under guidance of the German State the dictate of economizing (Spardiktat), which is targeting us here, is enforced all over Europe and worldwide. Germany bears the blame for economizing the Greek public to complete destruction, as well as for letting loose the property of the Greek people to the total exploitation of private investors. In consequence rampant unemployment arose, many people lost their base of existence, some committed suicide, many died on the streets, because they haven’t had shelter or couldn’t afford necessary medical support or medication.

Prison Profiteers Attacked – Excavators Torched – Solidarity with the Park Bench 3
During the night of October 11th , we set fire to two Eurovia Vinci excavators. Vinci, as a global company, has shown many times in the past and in the present that it apologizes for NOTHING and that it is ready to accept any order, no matter how dirty. (more…)

We hate prisons, many of our comrades are held in them, some are tortured, and prisons are at the heart of enforcing the established order. Vinci builds prisons, this vehicle belonged to them, so we wanted to set it on fire. So the train of thought that led to the destruction of the road construction vehicle on June 24 was actually quite simple.

During new years eve in Leipzig, eastern Germany, the night of excess was used to initiate an attack on a target that, up until then, deemed itself as heavily protected and untouchable. Every year for the first half hour of the new year, the
big cities in are covered in thick layers of fog and smog, never ending noises of explosions and masses of people who take over the sidewalks and community spaces to get a good look at the fireworks. The attackers goal was the federal court and the state prosecution. This institution figuratively and literally represents the central organ of the judiciary, this state and its democratic society.
200 meters away from the federal court, a burning barricade blocked the crossroad, so that the group could carry out the attack on the federal court and the neighbouring fraternity Corps Lusatia without any disturbances. Stones broke
through the windows of the fraternity house and paint balls were thrown at the facade. The mobile cameras of the court house were sprayed followed by people jumping the fence and trying to break through the security glass. Fire was set to the front door and the window frame, sadly the insides of the building were left undamaged. In front of the court, another barricade was set ablaze, cars were smashed and burned. The whole street was covered in smoke, released from the
cartridges of the attackers.
A choreography, which led saxonies attorney general to believe in a high level of professionalism behind the attack. He was very quick to announce a new level of left radical violence. Not only did the delinquents attack the state, but the whole society. Nothing that actually hasn‘t been heard before.
Around the new year, several attacks against state property were carried out. For example the arson attack against the district court in Berlin-Wedding and the district court and the district attorneys office in Hamburg in the last week of December 2018. In the first weeks of January there were attacks on the Court Building in the south of Germany, Stuttgart and some days later in Freiburg and against the Court in Göttingen, as an attack against deportations and the racist law regime.
Let‘s continue to target these institutions.
As long as we walk these streets we will try to burn down every court, that people get dragged in front of every day!

16.11.18: Last Friday night we torched a car belonging to the Spie Fleischhauer company in Leipzig Connewitz. And so, we made a small expression of our contempt and hatred towards the cruel prison industry. The direct attack against the property of those who allow domination and oppression is a necessary part of the struggle for a liberated society!
Our greetings go out to all those who sit in the dungeons of the rulers, do not lose heart and oppose each day of repression and exploitation. In particular, we send greetings to Nero and our comrades in Berlin after last week’s raids*. Your courage and determination give us strength!
Spie is one of the leading coal, lignite and nuclear industry service providers, and not just in Germany. After torching a Spie van in April, in Berlin, Sébastien Briat summed it up in a few words:
“In France, Spie is Vinci’s biggest competitor in the service sector. The company, based in France, is involved in the nuclear industry via its subsidiary Spie
Nucléaire. In Germany, Spie SAG is involved in the generation of electricty from coal and boasts of its long-standing partnership with RWE. For example, the settlers for lignite mining for RWE were transported from Spie to Hambacher Forest.”
The subsidiary Spie Fleischhauer GmbH is an information, security, media and electrical engineering company that is also active in the prison industry. Here Spie
Fleischhauer specializes, among others, in hazard management and telecommunication systems. For wealthy individuals, banks and corporations, it offers intelligent property protection surveillance systems. In Leipzig, the company is participating in the current expansion of Leipzig prison.
A free and self-determined life cannot exist with a state and its institutions. We stand in fighting solidarity with all the people who are harassed, exploited and imprisoned by cops, prosecutors and judges!
Freedom for Nero!
… In addition, we observed following our nightly excursion that cops seem to pass by and ignore burning company cars and luxury cars in Leipzig Connewitz. That means for us: Let more cars go up in flames!

Wednesday 21st January around 3 o’clock in the morning, four vehicles of a real estate company in Leipzig were torched: the cars destroyed by flames were all high-end vehicles (3 Mercedes and 1 Audi). This incendiary sabotage was claimed on Sunday 25th January by “Autonome Gruppen“:
In the night of 20th-21st January 2015, we attacked during a targeted action the whole fleet of vehicles of the multi-million euro real estate speculators GRK Holding in the southern-centre of Leipzig, and with this we delivered flames to four vehicles. The real estate company referenced is one of the largest long-term profiteers of gentrification in Leipzig. Spread throughout the city, the big company projects are either under construction or have already been completed. The systematic terror against the tenants is still high on the agenda, such as gentrification ensuing the cheaply purchased property renders Leipzig more attractive for people with a higher monthly income.
“Founded since 1991, GRK-Holding AG manages and leases, exclusively and qualitatively, high-end properties in and around Leipzig.”
This is enough reason to show these dear ladies and gentlemen that their actions don’t remain without a response. This took place whilst we deposited incendiaries to four vehicles parked in front of the headquarters of the company and a truck parked in the yard, four vehicles and a carport in the flames of our hatred.
