IT/EN (4th-8th of November 2019)
Claudio Lavazza, rebel, anarchist, bank robber and gentleman, who during the ‘70s in Italy participated in the struggle against State and Capital, arms in hand. Contrary to the sinkers of subversion of those years, he never exchanged the desire to overthrow everything for a political career. Nor has he resigned, nor sought refuge in other States, which could have granted him a controlled freedom. No, he kept fighting, against winds and tides.
After 16 years on the run, never renouncing to his anarchist coherence, nor to the joy of living as a free man, in 1996 he is arrested after a bank robbery in Cordoba, Spain, during which three comrades, including Claudio, will be seriously injured and two policewomen will lose their lives. Claudio will thus be locked up in the special regime F.I.E.S., and even in this deadly place he will continue his battle with firmness and perseverance.
After serving 22 years in the Spanish dungeons, in the summer of 2018 he is extradited – on loan, since his sentence in Spain is not yet finished – toward France, to face trial for a bank robbery at the expense of the National Bank of Saint-Nazaire, which took place in 1986. For this robbery, he was already sentenced, in absentia, to 30 years of prison.
If going to take money where there is plenty is always a possibility, as a refusal to the blackmail of work and exploitation, in order to seize the necessary means to carry out a struggle against the State, back then, in Saint-Nazaire, the tightrope robbers did not just touch any safe. They expropriated the State’s vault! Lightning of almost 26 million euros the pockets of those who oil the gears of power. (more…)

On the night of October 21st , a SUV car with a diplomatic plaque was burned, on rue Dumont d’Urville, behind the Greek embassy in Paris.
With this small action, we want to send a sign of solidarity to the anarchists in Greece, who fight against the State and Capital (legal and illegal) and to defend the occupied spaces.
For those who live and defend spaces of freedom.
For those who carry attacks against authority.
A thought also to the anarchists imprisoned there, in particular the two comrades imprisoned for a robbery in Thessaloniki or the members of the CCF [Conspiracy of Cells of Fire] still in jail.
Freedom for all!
Solidarity is the attack.

Branches of Turkish banks was attacked
Berlin, London, Sofia, Amsterdam, Paris. In these cities was attacked branches of Turkish bank (Işbank). For actions we used manual from the Network of Revolutionary Cells (SRB): “How to start evacuation”
Money from Turkish bank support terrorism of Turkish state. Turkish army killing civil people. For example, they killing a child named Sara Yusuf Hüseyin. Turkish army also killing revolutionary fighters in Rojava. We have to stop it!
Fight against Turkish bank is fight against terrorism!

Many people talk about the climate, they talk about the weather. Those who want to seem radical criticize the media icons that criticize those who govern.
Many people talk about arriving later this month. There are also those who rediscover the virtues of the people. And who are looking forward to weekly appointments with this famous “people”.
Many people talk.
We thought that the urgency, today as always, is to act. Act in small groups or alone, following our ideas and not the mood of the masses. The urgency of the attack.
Identify the enemy: like yesterday and like tomorrow, states, capital and every authority.
On the night of last Tuesday [September 17, 2019] we set fire to a car with a diplomatic plate and a big Porsche of a rich man, on avenue Marcel Proust.
We wanted to send a wink to the Italian anarchists convicted for the “Scripta Manent” operation; it has been three years since you were locked up. We don’t forget you!
A thought also for the three Germans arrested on a southern highway during the G7.
A thought for the Hamburg comrades.

Since the end of November, as the Gilet Jaune’s movement develops, cops and banks are being regularly attacked. In such a context, the 1st of May could have been a radical break in this world made of borders and wars. It could have been the continuation of the 16th of March’s riots and, to put it in perspective, an attack against the life-breaker industry called authority.
Nationalists and Regionalists flags are all over the place, all over our grounds, and at the same time the courts are filling up the prisons as the french state announced that it’ll be able to imprison 10,000 more people in the next 10 years, not to mention the Administrative Detention Center and psychiatric wards, and as the capitalistic speech tells us to smile as we die more and more in the inside. Work is just another way of saying « Kill me ». (more…)

«You are waiting for the revolution? Let it be! My own began a long time ago! When you are ready (god, what an endless wait!) I won’t mind going with you for a while. But when you stop, I shall continue on my way toward the great and sublime conquest of the nothing!
Any society that you build will have its limits. And outside the limits of any society, unruly and heroic tramps will wander with their wild and virgin thought — those who cannot live without planning ever new and dreadful outbursts of rebellion! I shall be among them!»
Pretty words, but there must be more than just words.
I don’t want to run behind the masses. They say that this time it’s the big one, that the insurrection has arrived…mine arrived a long time ago and it’s an individual insurrection.
During the early hours of December 11th, I set fire to six cars belonging to the Paris City Council on Rue Corvisart (in the 13th arrondissement). It was not the City Council that was targeted, any more than it was Macron or any other power. All power must be destroyed.
So we do not forget the comrades who have left us. For Mikhail, Zak, Sebastian, Mauricio and all the others.
For those who are in prison. A thought in particular for Krème and the Scripta Manent defendants in Italy.
For a Black December!

It seems that this Autumn, the fashion is neon yellow. It seems to be doing pretty
well with blue-white-red. It seems that it is absolutely necessary to be there, to
participate, to contribute; because there are people in the street, without leaders
and breaking things. It seems that if we don’t go there then we must stay in front
of the internet.
We don’t care.
The barricades on the Champs-Élysées don’t hide the confusion. The breakage cannot replace anti-authoritarian ideas. We were on the streets in 2016, and we will be there again, but not to defend the old world and its cars.
And we think that many other possibilities exist, you just have to look for them.
In the early morning of November 27th, a car belonging to the technical service of
the Police Prefecture was torched in front of the police station on Camille
Desmoulins street (the same one that lost their windows four years ago). The Enedis car parked opposite that station was torched too. Enedis, along with its subsidiary Gepsa, is making money from prisons. For example, they manage the jail in Meaux where Kréme is imprisoned (we send you a big hug comrade!).
Solidarity also with imprisoned anarchists around the world; those of Operation
Scripta Manet in Italy, the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire in Greece and the comrades
recently arrested in Argentina.
Gasoline price increases? We will use fire starters.

Paris, France: Diplomatic Vehicle Torched in Memory of Mikhail Zhlobitsky and in Solidarity with Anarchist Comrades Facing Repression
Saturday, November 17th, 2018
On Sunday the 11th of November, today’s greatest slaughterers commemorated the first world war’s butchery (and they prepared for future carnage). We continue to carry the old slogan of the anarchists from that era: against their war, against their peace, for the social revolution.
On the night of Monday, November 12th to Tuesday, November 13th, in this militarized capital and under video surveillance, we torched a car of the diplomatic corps at the intersection of Rue Spontini and Foch Avenue, as well as the big bourgeois Porsche that was parked next to it (yes, it is possible to bring war to the rich and the powerful!).
For the comrade Mikhail Zhlobitsky: we want to remember him this way, not with words, but with flames. Solidarity with Russian anarchists who respond to repression with direct action. Solidarity also to the anarchists who face the judiciary in Greece (CCF), in Italy (Operations Scripta Manent and Panico) and everywhere else. A thought for Krème and S., imprisoned in Limoges.

We think that direct action is also a way to escape the impasses of the middle-class activist swamp and its unoffensive slogans and common practices that are uncritically accepted and all to often remain a dead end. Alone, associated for a night or for life- according to the needs of each- let’s leave the dogmas behind and choose the chaos of life. For the defenders of this world we are criminals. We are simply its enemies and we are proud of it.
On the night of Thursday, October 11th to the 12th, on rue d’Hautpoul in the 19th arrondissement of Paris, a utility van of prison construction company Vinci and a car of SNCF (who hunt the poor and undocumented) were torched.
Long live anarchy, long live freedom!

On the night of Wednesday to Thursday, October 4th, a car belonging to Bouygues was torched on rue Laurier in the 17th arrondissement of Paris. Bouygues is well known for their involvement in prison construction.
We are sending these smoke signals to Krem, the last one to face charges for the burnt cop car case, to be incarcerated and subjected to the prison administration. Do not forget about him!
May this small incendiary gesture give strength and courage to the anarchists tortured and imprisoned in Russia, as well as the Basel 18 who will go to trial at the end of October for a wild and vicious stroll one evening in June 2016.
Freedom for all!!

Letter bomb explodes inside IMF offices in Paris, another 8 devices suspected in the post (France, Greece)
Sunday, March 19th, 2017
A day after the German Ministry of Finance received a fully functioning Conspiracy of Cells of Fire / FAI parcel bomb addressed to Wolfgang Schäuble, Finance Minister, the Parisian offices of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) also received a similar explosive device which was not detected by security. It exploded upon opening, injuring a female employee with burns to the face and arms. Her injuries are not life threatening.
The incident caused a wave of reaction as the embattled French State activated public security protocols, sealing off the area with armed anti-terrorist teams and instigating a large, now cross-border investigation with Greek involvement. The current French President made a statement about the attack which was picked up by the mass media, spreading further the idea-virus of insurrectional violence directed at those who are responsible for the ruination of the planet and the economic exploitation of billions of people which results in countless deaths, suicides and miserable existences. The French State is already in a declared state of emergency with army units patrolling the streets during the ongoing presidential election and coping with riots against police brutality and corruption.
Evidence of Greek stamps on the remnants of the device and the fact that a Greek return address was attached have become part of the official investigation, as the letter-bomb was confirmed by the Greek Minister for Public Order, Nikos Toskas, to have been sent from Greece. The bomb was designated for the IMF’s European representative, Jeffrey Franks, who has worked for the IMF for 24 years and has been director of the IMF’s Europe office since March 2015. The attack has not yet been claimed by those responsible, but Greek intelligence officials believe it to be the work of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire.
Embassies, financial institutions, branches of the Greek Post Office and all European ministries have been put on alert. Greek police are posting orders for sweeping controls on packages, for those leaving Greece and also interior, as it has not been established that a Greek target will not be next. According to the Greek police, the packages were sent with low amounts of explosive which defeated the X-Ray machines in the airport of Athens. The parcels have a reduced weight, volume and size, with realistic return sender-name and addresses to add to the deception. According to their research of postal records and security footage, Greek intelligence officials believe that up to another 8 similarly functional bombs may have been sent from post offices in Athens and are inbound to targets all over Europe…
Long live CCF / FAI-FRI

These past months, in different cities, including during unpermitted demos or riots, many of us have been thrilled by the number of offensive actions in the street. From clashes with the guard dogs of the state and property to the broken windows of shops and even the pillaging of their contents; from attacks on journalist-cops to overcoming the pacifiers of the day: all of this has shaken the arrogance of the powerful. In all forms of struggle — which aren’t limited to “social movements” — self-organization and direct action are indispensable if we are to break with the pacification world of commodities and with state terrorism. Because to claim that it’s unimaginable for individuals to directly oppose the existing order is just a veiled way of saying that social revolt is simply impossible.
Repression is not just the moment when the flashball or baton comes to strike recalcitrant bodies, it’s each moment of daily life under the domination of the State and Capital, through their thousands of omnipresent psychological and physical manifestations that coerce the poor into accepting a shitty life. It’s the prisons that lock up ever more people for ever longer sentences, in order to punish, isolate, break, and store them, out of sight of the peaceful consciences of good citizens. It’s also the outside prison, built from measures like electronic bracelets, house arrest, exclusion areas, bail conditions, and so on. (more…)

‘O gentlemen, the time of life is short;…
An if we live, we live to tread on kings;’
Bodies covered with tarpaulins, sheets, littering the terraces of various cafés… The horror of the slaughter that took place in that hall. It’s surreal.
Unable to do anything in that situation. In the name of their religion these god-crazed fanatics put a bullet indiscriminately in all the living unfortunate enough to cross their path. Super-trained suicide bombers that self-appointed religious leaders have promised will go to heaven, taking with them the greatest number of people possible in their killing spree. And the sole purpose of all this is to impose terror. To make those who live in a peaceful society, far from the battles that the army conducts against a nation they have not chosen, smell the smell of blood. To punish a population because a State has decided to conduct a war, hold people responsible who had no say in these decisions. Revenge of a State, in the most cowardly and easy way, not touching those concerned, but breaking eggs to make a show of force by making a bloody omelette. (more…)

Words of introduction by the translators (Dialectical Delinquents) : The following is a translation of a communique sent out from the anarchist bookshop “La Discordia” in Paris, which has been tagged and been the subject of smears calling them fascists because of their critique of Islam.
Various comments have been circulating the Parisian “anti-authoritarian” milieu describing both La Discordia and non-fides (which are not the same thing, despite some people being involved in both, some are involved in just the bookshop/library) as racists and – at least in the case of non-fides – as anarcho-nationalists. Anyone looking at either of them for longer than 2 seconds would realise that there’s not only not the slightest bit of truth in these slanders, but also that they have consistently maintained an internationalist position contrary to some of the implicitly nationalist stances of some of the “anti-authoritarians” (e.g. a failure to critique Palestinian or Kurdish nationalism). Whilst this graffiti might seem a fairly trivial incident, such things, unless vigorously contested, can have a miserable result far worse than a tag. A lie goes half way round the world before the truth has time to get its boots on. And in a world of lies, most people are ready to believe anything as long as it conforms to their prejudices – lies are taken on faith, and most avoid checking things out themselves (one only has to look at the history of Stalinism to understand how vicious calumnies and amalgam techniques can become). So, in the spirit of solidarity with these anarchists, I have translated this text, despite it being of interest to fairly few people.
As planned long before, on Tuesday, January 26th, a debate entitled “Islamophobia: the conceptual political extortion racket” was held in La Discordia. We wanted to confront ourselves and others with a topic that is at the crossroads of the current widespread confusion over the condemnation of racism and the defense of religion. The joint discussions were interesting, and the sixty or so comrades and companions who came (we promise, next time we will rent a larger place, and with more chairs!) demonstrated that a lot of people find the need for a revolutionary critique of religions, every religion, even Islam, which others would like to palm off as the “religion of the oppressed.” (more…)
