State Security Agency vehicle torched by Cell for Violent and Excessive Attack on Power / FAI (Mexico)

From Liberación Total (April 15, 2012) via This is our Job:
14 April 2012
Let us therefore trust the eternal Spirit which destroys and annihilates only because it is the unfathomable and eternal source of all life. The passion for destruction is a creative passion, too!
Last night, we took to the streets with the clear intention to rupture their social peace, to break the order constituted by most of society’s passiveness, conformism, and ambition for power. At around 11:30 p.m., we placed two delayed incendiary devices next to a State Security Agency (ASE) patrol car parked in front of the ASE headquarters on Avenida Texcoco in the Juan Escutia suburb on the border of Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl and the Federal District. At the site, we also left graffiti claiming responsibility by the FAI!
We attack the property of the State/Capital’s security forces with fire, just like we would lethally and explosively attack those henchmen of power. The conflict with authority also exists in the neighborhoods on the edge of the city. We don’t expect to turn the system on its head with a single action. This is a daily war for freedom and individual rights. May they burn wherever they are, whether in Polanco or Santa Fe, Ciudad Nezahualcóyotl or Ecatepec! Let everyone destroy their own oppressions and burn down the city! Conflict is in the streets, and it is accompanied by incendiary discourse that incites breaking the chains on thought and action that are encouraged, espoused, and imposed by pacifism and nonviolence!
Solidarity with comrade Tortuga!
Solidarity with Gabriel Pombo da Silva!
Solidarity with Braulio Durán!
Solidarity with the compas who were recently retaliated against in Italy!
Solidarity with Eat and Billy of the Indonesian FAI!
Against the police: arsons every day!
Against the State/Capital: Social War on all fronts!
Long live anarchy!

From IMC UK:
11 April 2012
We take responsibility for the attack on the communications mast on Dundry hill on 11th April, that took out five communication services and took off air BBC Radio Bristol and Jack FM for more than 16 hours, as well as disrupting Avon and Somerset Police radio communications it seems (although they are refusing to comment on this).
We did this by stuffing two tyres with rags and methylated spirit, jamming them in the bundles of wires at the bottom of the mast and then igniting them. It was our pleasure to demonstrate that with modest ability and ample will we can create a rupture in ‘business as usual’.
We want to interrupt the spectacle of the mass media, and the administration of the technological-information society.
These radio stations and the media in general enforce the interests of the ruling class – the state and corporations. Propaganda masquerading as ‘objective news’ comes ad verbatim from government and corporate sources, and listeners get blasted with a tidal wave of adverts worshipping commodity lifestyle. Any criticism of the status quo is allowed, as long as it occurs within certain parameters, taking capitalism and civilisation as given, and entrenching the idea that these are inevitable. These criticisms, drained of any vitality, actually help maintain the existing order by making it appear tolerant. Genuinely revolutionary ideas are met with violent repression, as in the recent case of the anarchist counter information websites Culmine and Parole Armatein Italy. Every repressive blow deserves an answer. Mass media is the enemy of all rebellion and of every attempt to create a free life.
The media is just one tool of modern alienation. Technologies such as mobile phones and online networks have become so all-pervasive that other more meaningful forms of communication have been undermined. We are increasingly atomised and connected to each other through the mediation of mass electronic devices. The technological-information society makes it easy to bury yourself in obsessive updating, reality TV, ‘social media’, popularity games and whatever gets handed down to blot out a way of life which hinges on control and exclusion.
Faced with all this, we aren’t bought off as accomplices to an impoverished society that is collapsing the ecology which hosts us on this planet, and we reject the endless slide show of media revelry.
This was our torch of solidarity to; Luca Abba (injured whilst resisting the military-style occupation by police thugs in the Susa Valley) and the 25 arrested across Italy fighting against the high speed train line construction; the jailed eco-sabateurs Braulio and Adrian in Mexico along with Sadie and Exile in the US; and members of the Greek revolutionary organisation Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (who are now threatened with having their sentences lengthened) and the others accused in their case.
For a renewed spring offensive – THE TIME IS NOW AND THE ENEMY IS EVERYWHERE

It is the hour of the social tragedy!
We will destroy laughing.
We will set fires laughing.
We will kill laughing.
We will expropriate laughing.
And society will fall.
The fatherland will fall.
The family will fall.
All will fall after the free man is born.
The one is born who has learned the Dionysian art of joy and laughter through tears and sorrow.
The hour has come to drown the enemy in blood…
The hour has come to wash our minds in blood.
Enough, enough, enough!
As the poet transforms his lyre into a dagger!
As the philosopher transforms his probe into a bomb!
As the fisherman transforms his oar into a formidable ax.
As the miner comes up from the unbearable caves of the dark mines armed with his shining iron.
As the farmer transforms his fruitful spade into a war lance.
As the laborer transforms his hammer into a scythe and cleaver.
And forward, forward, forward.
It is time, it is time — it is time!
And society will fall.
The fatherland will fall.
The family will fall.
All will fall after the Free Man is born.
Forward, forward, forward, oh joyful destroyers.
Beneath the black edge of death we will conquer Life!
And we will make it our slave! Laughing!
And we will love it laughing!
Since the only serious people are those who know how to be actively engaged laughing.
And our hatred laughs…
Red laughter. Forward!
Forward, for the destruction of the lie and of the phantoms!
Forward, for the complete conquest of individuality and of Life!
RENZO NOVATORE – TOWARD THE CREATIVE NOTHING
A few days ago, the security apparatus at the hand of the Italian State perpetrated a repressive raid against anarchist comrades and the Culmine blog, a raid carried out in various cities and towns of that country, resulting in 4 comrades arrested under accusations that are the most common accusations in Italy and under which many other comrades have been arrested and incarcerated in the past, in similar repressive raids. Accused of Terrorism and subversive association, our comrades find themselves in the clutches of the State and need to be vindicated in the same way that those anarchist comrades in affinity in Italy have shown themselves in solidarity with the struggles and the prisoners in other parts of the World.

Buenos Aires: Criminal Court bombed by Indomitable Nucleus for the Spread of the Fire / FAI (Argentina)
Sunday, March 4th, 2012
1 March 2012
Ours is the conviction
Gendarmería, Local, and Buenos Aires Federal police, civilian brigades, anti-terrorist laws, biometric identification systems, thousands of cameras throughout the city, vigilant citizens ready to betray, overcrowded jails, torture, murder … this is the scenario where our struggle, in a context similar to many other cities, attacking comrades, individually or collectively, without any social consensus and without the approval of any leader, alone and with their principles and values, burn like a fire.
For our part, we report that on Thursday March 1st at 2:30 in the morning, we attacked with an explosive / incendiary, the Criminal Court in Calle Paraguay 1536, in the city center, causing visible damage to the facade and their windows.
We’re thinking of the comrades Freddy Fuentevilla Saa, Marcelo Villarroel Sepulveda and Juan Aliste Vega, who were on hunger strike in prison in Santiago on February 17, within days of international turmoil (19 to 29 February).
Compañeros: The subversion is awake and will not disappear! While there is poverty there will be rebellion!!
The brothers of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, that even within the prison continue war unabated. We are brothers with their words, their gestures and their actions and with the project of the Informal Anarchist Federation, to which we contribute and strengthen.
With love and complicity for the companion Luciano Pitronello (Turtle), wounded and kidnapped by the Chilean state. Gabriel Pombo da Silva, prisoner in Germany – anarquista integro; Marco Camenisch, fighter for the liberation of the earth; and comrade-prisoners in Mexico, Spain, Italy, Indonesia…
With Mauricio Morales and Lambros Foundas always present in the combative memory.
War without truce to the whole system of domination

Here is an English translation of an article from the journal Conspiracion Acrata from Mexico referring to the idea of “Antiguiridismo Anarchico”. We hope you like it.
“Antigiuridismo Anarchico” which translates to “Anti-Judicial Anarchism” is a concept which has been used throughout anarchist history to define the attitude of a radical and total rejection of the concept and practice of the “justice” of the State, or as otherwise said – the judicial methods of the State including defence through a lawyer. This attitude or concept is or should be something normal within the anarchist movement but there are few companer@s who have put it into practice for diverse reasons or strategies.
Antigiuridismo Anarchico is the rejection of declaring a position to the State in front of the court or contributing to the circus of the State. Often the declarations of those who position themselves in this attitude are only directed as a dialogue or explanation to the compañer@s of their movement. This attitude is the rejection of any legal resources through which one could obtain “freedom”. (more…)

13 December 2011
Last night we decided to give a demonstration of our anti-indulgence with respect to the norms that govern this society, the unmasked consumerism, the “commodity” of not thinking and refraining from an infinity of alternatives, and of, zombie-like, letting oneself be carried by commercialism, walking without a fixed course, without a project, passing stores, malls, barracks, museums of the State full of culture and useless “art” that has infatuated many “alternative people” thinking that with paintings about an unreal reality they can change something, they can see a different world and envision a future without violence, without hate, with agreement, without conflict… and passivity! eternal ally of the State/Capital, the useless urge to not do anything for oneself nor for anyone nor anything, nor to change minimally our situation as individuals.

A publication by the imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire
We hear the song of fire that comes from far away. The words smell of gunpowder. From the other side of the world rebellious comrades burn the nights and liberate places and moments. We can hear them… They conspire, plan, attack… We do not have to say anything else, we leave our brothers and sisters to speak for us.
“We are all Conspiracy Cells of Fire. C.C.F. is not an organization or just a group. On the contrary it is a antagonistic expression of rage and contempt towards authority and its structures. To spread the C.C.F. all you need is gasoline, matches and the desire to fight for absolute freedom. We have begun the war against the existing order.”
i)The wind blows against… from Indonesia to Chile.
These previous months from every corner of the earth more and more explosive messages of fire and gunpowder cross borders and seas reaching us here, in the Greek prisons where we are hostage, but not defeated.
Words mix with fire and behind the ashes of banks, government buildings, cop cars, nanotechnology labs, satellite antennas, private security cars and luxury shops, open a promise to friends and a threat to the enemy. They open a live proposition of the Informal Anarchist Federation (F.A.I.). An International Revolutionary Front (I.R.F.) is now organized in Italy, England, Chile, Mexico, Argentina, Russia, Holland, Peru, Bolivia, Indonesia, Australia, Greece…
An idea that started its journey ten years ago from Italy from the brothers and sisters of the Italian F.A.I. and today is stronger than ever. F.A.I. definitely is not a theoretic game of harmless words and symbols, but an idea to live dangerously and anarchically with all our senses, without dead time and cowardly excuses.
Often the texts that come to our hands like the one from the Italian F.A.I., the one from the English comrades of F.A.I. titled “Rain and Fire”, the announcement of the Russian F.A.I., the call of the 11 anarchist organizations from Mexico, and many more, fill us with a weird awkwardness. It’s this indescribable joy we feel when individuals and groups who do not know one another reach the same conclusions and feel the same feelings the exact same moment.
This feeling explodes in every word that unlocks the next and draws a common path of revolt. It is one of the few times that we do not have much to say. Most of our points are covered by our comrades. But we don’t want to consume the text in a series of compliments. (more…)

To all like-minded arsonists and antagonists, the fourth communiqué from the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Mexico / Informal Anarchist Federation:
Neither exasperated, indignant, nor broken! Arsonists at war against every authority!
All our solidarity with comrade Gabriel Pombo da Silva!
We’re celebrating two months of direct attacks on capital and the State!
Against the system of domination!
For Total Liberation!
Yesterday [26/10/11] at 6:23 p.m., liberatory fire again burned where it hurts most, destroying merchandise. The Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (CCF) faction of the Mexican Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI-M), Veracruz section, gave life to liberatory fire at the Wal-Mart located at Universidad and Avenida Las Palmas in the heart of Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz. With this new attack, we avenge comrade Gabriel Pombo da Silva (held captive in Aachen prison) and demand his immediate release from the German and Spanish states. We also stand in solidarity with our comrade Tamara, with the Bombings Case compas in Chile, with the imprisoned Conspiracy of Cells of Fire compas in Greece, and with all our comrades abducted by the State in Mexico and the rest of the world.

325 receives and transmits:
10 October 2011
On the night of Monday 10 October we hit the bastard system again with more fiery anger. Two cars at the GP Motors dealership in Newnham, Cambridge, were arsoned – we hope the flames spread to the others, bringing a roaring inferno to the quiet leafy streets. No one was outside, the only sign of the middle class residents awake was the blue glow of TV screens from curtained windows! While the insurrectionary action cell had adrenaline pumping, joy in the heart, the moon shining bright above and the refreshing night air.
Shout out to the impatient and the bored shaking off passiveness and going on the attack against society!!
To the Greek uprizers and most especially the CCF, you fill us with strength, stay strong and stay unbowed!
And to the anarchists on the attack around the world, in Mexico, Chile, Spain, Indonesia, Russia, Argentina, Italy, and everywhere else – we are winning, winning against society’s cloying herd mentality and the meaningless lot set out for us in life.
As we know in our hearts, what we win is right here right now living with the head held high, the smile as we face a new day with dignity, the knowledge that whether or not the broader population upsurges against the imposed system and we have anything like the anarchist dream of a world of freedom and equality with no domination, we live without regrets as anarchists NOW.
Against the whole fucking disgusting cage of civilisation – wild destruction for total liberation!

Strike after Strike: a recount of Black September in Mexico and beyond…
On the first of September the press reported that a package containing explosive material had been found in scientific research laboratories within the School of Advanced Studies, Cuautitlán campus, in the State of Mexico, the school is owned by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). Even then the threat was latent.
A few weeks before this action, newspapers read: UNAM to challenge anti-technology group, will continue with its Nano Science development. Obviously it was referring to Individuals tending towards the Wild (ITW) [Individualidades Tendiendo a lo Salvaje – ITS].
The ASE anti-explosives unit de-activated the package, which according to the University authorities was destined for a Professor of a Nano Technology branch. The indignation created was huge and ITW was successful in causing a blow to the two most important Universities in Mexico, the Tec de Monterrey (private) and the UNAM (public).
With this individual attack, although foiled, Black September would begin.
The Terrorist Cells for Direct Action- Anti-Civilisation Fraction (TSDD-ACF) claimed responsibility for the explosive attack against the National Institute of Ecology and for the placing of a false bomb with a message against the Bio-pharmaceutical IFaB on the 5th of September in the Coyoacán area in Mexico City, Federal District. These actions happened quite a while ago, with the former happening in April and the latter in December last year. In their communiqué, the TSDD-ACF made an extensive critique of reductionism and of civilisation itself.
These actions were hidden by the Mexico City government, even still, the attacks would continue.
The Animal Liberation Front claimed responsibility for actions in support of Tortuga from Chile on the 12th. A lizard and tortoises were freed, one KFC was vandalised, and another attacked with fire, and an attempted arson attack on an Ostrich Farm truck which was interrupted by a guard that ran after the compañer@s, without however being able to detain them as they sped off on their bikes in the municipality of Zumpango in Mexico State.
The next day, on the 13th, in Lomas de Chapultapec- one of the most ´protected´ zones of Mexico City, an explosives device was detonated in front of a Banamex Bank, the press reported the event and in an interview the miserable police chief Miguel Ángles Mancera mentioned that the device had an electronic circuit with a clock as its detonator, which to him seemed strange seeing as very little devices used in Mexico City have been of such a composition. Technique, Mancera, technique!
On the 1th, the Autonomous Cells of the Immediate Revolution- Praxedis G. Guerrero (CARI-PGG) claimed responsibility for an explosive attack against a Mexico State police truck in the municipality of Nezahualcóyotl in Mexico State. That action was also hidden by the authorities.
For the 21st, Individuals tending towards the Wild claimed responsibility for the package that was found in the FES installations on the first of September and made themselves responsible for another explosive package that was addressed to the director of INIFAP in the Coyoacán area of Mexico City, this last action was also hidden.
In their long communiqué, ITW discussed diverse themes including leftism, the psychological consequences of living in civilisation, neurology, promiscuous or indiscriminate solidarity, and critiques of the Techno-Industrial society. Being a support for those who wish to abandon the traditional critiques of the system and further deepen them still.
Two days later on the 23rd, an explosive device was detonated at the offices of the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) in the Iztacalco area of Mexico City. The television news showed the video footage of a shadow suddenly appearing, leaving a bag in the doorway and leaving. A few minutes later, a large explosion was recorded.
The material damages were considerable and the deed was later claimed by the Autonomous Cells of the Immediate Revolution- Praxedis G. Guerrero.
On the 26th a text was published on diverse webpages signed by a number of Eco-Anarchist and Insurrectionary Action groups making a call-out to avoid participating in the October 2 March (a march which commemorates the hundreds of combatants massacred by the government in 1968 in the lead-up to the Olympic Games).
It had come to the attention of the compañer@s that the Mexico City government, feeling impotent at not having found anyone else to throw in their jails, had planned a wave of repression against the anarchist contingent (planned hand in hand with the Communists- evidently annoyed at losing the limelight and their `recruits´ to Anarchism. transl.) as it has attempted to do since the Black September of 2009 when there were a multiplication of action groups, mostly Eco-Anarchists groups, around the Mexican Republic.
In the text signed by the various groups, it was pointed out that there were other forms to fuel the conflict against the State other than a march that by merely attending it was like putting yourself in the wolf´s mouth. However, there were a few `masochistic´ groups (anarcho-“legalists”) that put out propaganda saying not to take the text into account and called for anarchists to participate in the march, perhaps so that they might have something to do afterwards when there were detentions, their substitutionary activity of anarchist activism that relies on the tradition of repression in demonstrations to be able to follow on with this artificial activity.
When the day of the 2nd of October arrived, with September having ended, the propaganda by the deed was accomplished and a few encapuchad@s (masked ones) went to the streets to march. According to the press and the authorities no one was detained, and there were no considerable incidents. However in the Tlatelolco metro station, from where the march would leave, the police confiscated gas masks, aerosols, glass bottles, poles and other objects from demonstrators. More than 4,000 police watched over the march, plus all of those infiltrated within the contingents, undercover cops and all of the cameras that were pointed at any sign of encapuchad@s. Well, there may not have been riots in Mexico City, but the same didn`t occur in the city of Chilpancingo in the state of Guerrerro, as various banks, shopping centres, businesses, traffic lights and vehicles were destroyed by young encapuchad@s, as were various convenience stores looted, more than thirty people being arrested during the riots. In other parts such as Oaxaca and Chiapas anarchist presence was also noted in the marches.
But the more notorious news item was the enormous fire that spread throughout the Wal-Mart supermarket on the 30th of September in the Cuauhtémoc area of Mexico City.
The fire was noticed around 5:30pm in the afternoon and the smoke was able to be seen from various parts throughout the Monster City. More than 3,000 people were evacuated from the shopping centre. At the same time in the city of Guadalajara in the state of Jalisco another fire took place in a shopping centre (a coincidence? Don`t think so…). By the 3rd of October, the group Conspiracy Cells of Fire – Jalisco (Fraction of the FAI Mexico) claimed responsibility of being the authors of the fire in a communiqué published on various web-sites. Again, the miserable Mancera gave false declarations to cover up the truth, saying that the fire at the Wal-Mart had been caused by a short-circuit. This time, however, his strategy to hide the truth didn`t bear fruit at the press quickly published that the anarchist group had been responsible for the fire.
The CCF-J did not only claim responsibility for the fires at the Wal-Mart in Mexico City and that of the shopping centre in Guadalajara, but as well for another two arsons that were reported by the press and whose origins were still unknown (or hidden). One, which severely damaged a warehouse in the Coyoacán area on the 27th of September and the second on the 28th, which damaged the installations of the CONALEP (airport staff training school) in the Venustiano Carranza area, the fire was registered in the morning of that day and the students had to be evacuated.
In the middle of the night on the 3rd of October, a home-made bomb detonated within the ATM area of a Santander bank in the Tlalpan area of Mexico City. The explosion left severe material damage- windows shattered, the ceiling and roof fallen in, the ATM rendered useless as well as minor damage to the National Institute of Respiratory Diseases that was across the road from the bank. The authorities declared that it is very possible that the action was carried out by the anarchists. (The action was later claimed by the CARI-PGG. transl.).
All of these deeds reveal the potential of Anarchist, Eco-Anarchist and Anti-Civilisation action groups, the scene is evolutionary, and although the government hides the information, the flames do not burn out, they continue extending and are unstoppable.

From Liberación Total:
To all arsonists and like-minded antagonists, the third communiqué from the CCF-FAI of Mexico:
Like the joint communiqué by 11 Mexican insurrectionary anarchist and eco-anarchist groups says: “We are launching a frontal attack on the system of domination, causing maximum damage with minimum risk.”
We have the capacity to rebel against a criminal, terrorist, unjust system, even until the final consequences!
On September 15, while BLACK SEPTEMBER was developing in Mexico, a new path of informal struggle against domination was being laid out: the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (CCF) faction of the Informal Anarchist Federation of Mexico (FAI-M). Our first arson was carried out on September 27 by the Mexico City cells, who unleashed liberatory fire at the warehouse on Avenida Pacífico between Miguel Ángel de Quevedo and Eje 10 Sur in the Coyoacán area of Mexico City. War on the existent order had begun. The next day, we torched the Airport Staff training school of the National College of Professional Technical Education (CONALEP), located in the Third Ward of Arenal in the Venustiano Carranza area of Mexico City. On September 30, in an action coordinated between the Mexico City cells and the Jalisco cells, the CCF of Mexico simultaneously attacked capital in Mexico City and Jalisco, hitting where it hurts most: merchandise. Liberatory fire was born at the Wal-Mart on Calle Luis Donaldo Colosio in the Buenavista suburb of Cuauhtémoc, Mexico City and at the Pabellón shopping mall on Avenida Patria in Guadalajara, Jalisco.
Recent statements by Mexico City chief prosecutor Miguel Ángel Mancera continue to downplay the anarchist actions taking place in the capital. This is the same old strategy used by the PRD and Marcelo Ebrad to censor our struggle, as the Mexico City cells claimed responsibility for their attack in a communiqué released on the same day as the action. The Jalisco chief prosecutor’s office is also adding to the silence and whitewashing that conceals our struggle, as the Jalisco cells publicized their attack that same night as well.
With our acts of propaganda during the events of this BLACK SEPTEMBER, we take retribution for comrade Tortuga, comrade Tamara, and our comrade prisoners in Mexico and the rest of the world.
The struggle has begun. Let’s make sure it spreads everywhere.
Take a single comrade prisoner during tomorrow’s march and we will make the cities burn!
We are all accomplices of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire!
Long live the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire!
Long live the Informal Anarchist Federation of Mexico!
Long live the fighting insurrectionist and eco-anarchist groups!
Long live liberatory fire and avenging gunpowder!
Be strong, captive comrades in the Bombings Case!
Be strong, imprisoned comrades from the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire!
Be strong, comrades from Epanastatikos Agonas [Revolutionary Struggle]!
Be strong, comrade Tortuga!
Be strong, comrade Tamara!
Be strong, comrade Gabriel!
Against the technological system of domination!
For the demolition of prisons!
For the destruction of everything that dominates us!
For Total Liberation!
For international anarchist coordination!

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.
