Sabotage of CCTV installation in Pontianak City by ‘Maverick Cell – FAI’ (Indonesia)

Friday, November 13th, 2020

As we’ve seen during the Covid-19 pandemic, the State takes advantage of the situation with (offline and online) monitoring, controlled by police and also through technological devices, for example CCTV, smart phones, etc. Their reasons for this situation are, as we know very well, is in the name of public safety, which is an illusion repeated over and over.

We are faced with a situation that is uncertain, we do not know when the pandemic will end and at the same time the State is intensifying its control technology, on which the use is augmented and enhanced, CCTV for example. At the start of the pandemic we found that surveillance of urban space with CCTV increased and active police-army patrols as well. This situation makes the resistance movement decrease, we are “required” to stay put, to isolate oneself. But is this any logical reason not to follow up with the rebels on the streets? We are sure and our answer is no.

We refuse to be passive in the midst of the control and seizure of living space by the State, government and police. However, due to this pandemic and the situation of contamination, we must seek a gap – without meaning to be arrogant – and to simultaneously maintain the health of oneself and with shared affinity and continue the rebellion (albeit minimal and inadequate). We believe it can be done. Because of this attitude, on November 13 on one of the roads of Pontianak city, we sabotaged the CCTV and take responsible for this action.

And lastly, we are in solidarity with fellow Italian anarchists in Operation Scripta Manent, Panico, Prometo, Ritrovo, Lince, Renata, Bialystok, Scintilla, who were repressed by the public prosecutor and Brenner Court. And for fellow Belarusian anarchists, and to Monica and Francisco, also to Gabriel Pombo, also to Tanggerang and Makassar fellow anarchists, and for all imprisoned anarchists all over the world. Our attacks are dedicated to you, without terms and conditions.

Fight Control Technology!
Fight the Prison and For the Release of All Prisoners!
Long live anarchy, long live the insurrection!

Sebagaimana yang kita amati di masa pandemi Covid-19 ini, negara memanfaatkan situasi tersebut dengan pemantauan (offline dan online) terkontrol dengan aparat polisi dan juga melalui perangkat teknologi, misalnya cctv, ponsel pintar, dll. Alasan mereka atas situasi ini kita tahu betul ialah atasnama keamanan masyarakat, ilusi yang berulang-ulang.

Kita dihadapi dengan situasi yang tidak pasti kapan akan berakhirnya pandemi ini dan disisi yang sama bahwa negara memasifkan pengontrolan teknologi, dimana penggunaan ini ditambah dan ditingkatkan, cctv misalnya. Di awal pandemi kami mendapati bahwa pengawasan ruang kota dengan cctv bertambah dan patroli polisi-tentara yang aktif. Situasi ini membuat gerakan perlawanan menjadi menurun, dimana kita “mengharuskan” untuk tetap diam di tempat, mengasingkan diri sendiri. Namun apakah ini alasan yang logis untuk tidak melanjuti pemberontak di jalanan? Kami yakin dan jawaban kami adalah tidak.

Kami menolak untuk menjadi pasif ditengah-tengah pengontrolan dan perampasan ruang hidup oleh negara, pemerintah dan polisi. Namun dikarenakan situasi pandemi dan pengontoral ini kita harus mencari celah–tanpa bermaksud sombong– dan secara bersamaan untuk tetap menjaga kesehatan diri sendiri maupun bersama afinitas (meskipun minimal dan tidak memadai) dan melanjutkan pemberontakan. Kami yakin ini bisa dilakukan. Karena sikap inilah, pada tanggal 13 November di salah satu ruas jalan kota Pontianak, kami menyabotase perangkat cctv dan kami bertanggung jawab atas tindakan ini.

Dan sisi lain, kami bersolidaritas dengan rekan-rekan anarkis Italia dalam Operasi Scripta Manent, Panico, Prometo, Ritrovo, Lince, Renata, Bialystok, Scintilla, yang di represif oleh jaksa penuntut umum dan pengadilan Brenner. Dan juga untuk rekan-rekan anarkis Belarusia, juga kepada Monica dan Francisco, juga kepada Gabriel Pombo, juga kepada rekan-rekan anarkis Tanggerang dan Makassar, dan untuk semua tahanan anarkis seluruh dunia. Serangan kami didekasikan untuk kalian, tanpa syarat.

Lawan Teknologi Kontrol!
Lawan Penjara dan Untuk Pembebasan Semua Tahanan!
Panjang Umur Anarki, Panjang Umur Insureksi!

Pontianak City, Indonesia: Poster Bombing & Vandalism Actions Against the IMF-WBG Meeting in Bali

We are a group consisting of autonomous individuals who carried out some poster bombing and vandalism actions against Bank of Indonesia, ATMs, police posts, the Digulist roundabout, the West Kalimantan governor’s office and several other highly visible locations in Pontianak City. We carried out these actions as a response to the meeting between Global Capitalist organizations the World Bank Group and the International Monetary Fund that is being held in Bali from October 8-14, 2018.

These spontaneous actions we carried out express our uncompromising rejection of a normal life full of daily submission. These actions are a manifestation of our hatred, anxiety and and anger against a system that requires us to accept a society where we have no control over our own lives. Their meeting is a clear sign that Global Capitalism has improved it’s position in controlling daily life with various disgusting economic schemes and investments.

For us there are two options: taking action or remaining silent – and we will never choose the second option. Passively watching or reading the news about the IMF-WBG meeting, that is not an option for us. If we take a deeper look, we can see that all aspects in this world relate to economics, and yes, they are the people who are behind all of this bullshit.

Here is a sentence that is appropriate for all those groups and individuals who condemn our actions as immoral and irrational acts: There is no system or morality that can hold us back when we reach the peak of our anger.

And another thing you should know: you are all under their control. You just don’t realize that the concept of good / bad morality that you follow is what allows them to achieve their goals. You are all their obedient tools.

We are what you call Utopianists. We are Anarchists!
