Third court report of the anarchists Eat & Billy, Long-Live Luciano Tortuga Cell – FAI/IRF (Indonesia)
Wednesday, February 15th, 2012
Rough translation from Negasi:
Reyhard Rumbayan (EAT) and Billy Augustan (Billy) were yesterday (February 14, 2012) back in court for the third time. This agenda together with the second hearing on February 7, 2012, is to hear testimony from witnesses. The Prosecutor said they would present 30 witnesses to prove and convince the judge that the two combatants can be charged with terrorism.
The trial itself is increasingly clear to us as a sad parody of the State. Two witnesses that were presented at the second trial even admitted that their evidence consisted of only seeing Eat and Billy in a cafe before the burning took place. And the two witnesses who are owners of the cafe, in front of the judges, stated that they did not listen to the conversation the night before the attack on the property occurs. (more…)

Long live the live action!
Long live the resistance!

The political attack by Long-Live Luciano Tortuga Cell – FAI Indonesian Section against Auto Teller Machine (ATM) of BRI Bank located in Affandi Street, Mrican Caturtunggal, Depok in Sleman Regency, faced it’s first trial in Monday 31 of January 2011. Two social combatants, Billy Augustan (Billy) and Reyhard Rumbayan (Eat) who took the political responsibility for this attack, are charged with multiple clauses by the prosecutors at the first trial in Sleman Court.
The lawyers for the social combatants: Andi Suryo Awalludin and Hillarius NG Merro chose not to submit an exception to the judges. In front of the Judge Leader, Mulyanto, three of the prosecutors: Wiwik Triatmini, Wahyu Handoko and Tri Widi read the indictment alternately. In this case, the two combatants (Eat & Billy) are charged with the same clauses but accused of having different roles. (more…)

Correction – Court Update – Trial continues Tuesday February 7 2012
From Indonesia to Chile…
October 7th, 2011 – two anarchists are arrested and imprisoned in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, after an explosive incendiary attack against an empty branch of BRI ATM bank. The action is declared through a written document which the police catch the anarchists in possession of. The written declaration states that the action is in solidarity with Luciano ‘Tortuga’ (a young anarchist combatant in Chile, who was accidentally maimed in a bomb attack against Santander bank), as well as many anarchist prisoners, including those of ‘Caso Bombas’ in Chile and the Revolutionary Organisations – Conspiracy of Cells of Fire and Revolutionary Struggle in Greece. Situating themselves firmly within the global revolutionary war for liberation and freedom, Eat & Billy also state that their action is a direct attack against the terrorism of the Indonesian State and their police and military.

Rough translation from news of the comrades of Negasi:
Two combatants of the Jogja area (Eat & Billy) who have been detained since October 7, 2011, have now been moved to the court prison and will face their first trial today, January 30, 2012. This trial will proceed with the second trial to be held on February 1, 2012.
From the information we managed to get, both combatants will be tried separately and not together. We still do not know the real reason behind it, but from the interim analysis we can conclude that this was done to try to make the two combatants attack each other, cornering and mutually incriminating one another. This condition clearly shows how the State through the police and military will only operate through fear and terror. The trial itself will be held open. Place of the hearing itself is still not known for sure. But to estimate where the hearing will be held, the State High Court in Sleman (Jogyakarta) is a good guess.
Therefore we call for solidarity with the combatants of Jogja, and so that comrades are able to come and attend this hearing. The presence of this, other than a form of tangible support, is also part of an effort to show to the authorities that we never trust their justice.
Long live the Two Jogya Combatants
Long live solidarity

7/12/11 – Frankfurt, Germany : CEO Josef Ackermann is the intended target of a fully operational explosive parcel which is mailed to Deutsche Bank headquarters. Bank security staff identify the device during x-ray screening, and it is later neutralised by police. A claim of responsibility is recovered from the device, which is published in the corporate press.
9/12/11 – Rome, Italy : Chief Director Marco Cuccagna of Italy’s tax collection office, Equitalia, receives a letter-bomb which explodes after he opens it, causing damage to his hands, blowing off part of his finger and almost blinding him after his glass desk shatters in the explosion.
12/12/11 – Paris, France : The Greek embassy in Paris is the target of a third explosive device which is identified and neutralised.
Amidst the wave, mainstream media report that envelopes containing bullets and threatening letters are mailed to Italian Justice Minister Paola Severino and Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno. An additional parcel of vengeance was received by Equitalia on the 15th December, but was identified and neutralised. A note inside the latest package said “don’t kill yourself, rebel: death to usurers!”
Here is a translation of the claim of responsibility that accompanied the package bomb to the central headquarters of Deutsche Bank in Frankfurt:
FREEDOM AND HAPPINESS FOR OUR BROTHER GABRIEL POMBO DA SILVA. DEATH TO THE BANKS THAT STRANGLE THE PEOPLE.
THREE PARCEL BOMBS IN THESE DAYS ARE TRAVELLING TOWARD BANKS AND BANKERS, TICKS AND LEECHES. WITH THESE SMALL BUT RESOLVED ACTIONS, WE OF THE EAT & BILLY ITALIAN CELL JOIN IN THE NEW ANARCHIST INTERNATIONAL, THE INFORMAL ANARCHIST FEDERATION AND INTERNATIONAL REVOLUTIONARY FRONT. WE HAVE THIS NAME IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE INDONESIAN FAI, WITH OUR BROTHERS EAT AND BILLY. WE DON’T NEED SPECIALISTS OF ACTION, ANYONE CAN ARM THEIR OWN HANDS, ANYONE CAN ASSEMBLE THEIR OWN GIFT PACKAGE. WAR ON THE EUROPE OF THE BANKERS, DEATH TO THE LEECHES THAT GOVERN US.
LONG LIVE THE INDONESIAN FAI
LONG LIVE THE C.C.F.

28 November 2011
On the night of November 28th, 2011, we sabotaged a rail line in Southern Oregon as part of a coordinated effort to disrupt the flow of commerce on the West Coast. We got tired of watching trains pass through our towns loaded with lumber, ore, cheap commodities, and other resources pillaged from the earth without consequence. We didn’t do this out of a desire to create a more green, sustainable or humane civilization—we want nothing less than to see the total failure of this sick and rotten society.
This action was not only easy to carry out, but positively satisfying. We used 4AWG copper wire with the ends stripped of insulation and wrapped around the two sides of the track with the rest of it buried in the middle, which falsely indicated to a sensor that there was a train stopped on the railway.
We did this in solidarity with currently imprisoned members of the Long-Live Luciano Tortuga Cell/Indonesian FAI, to whom we send our most passionate revolutionary greetings.
We would also like to send our love to ALF prisoner of war, Walter Bond.

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…)

Letter from Eat & Billy, imprisoned comrades of the Long-Live Luciano Tortuga Cell – Indonesian FAI (Indonesia)
Sunday, November 13th, 2011
The anarchist prisoners Eat and Billy are imprisoned comrades of the Long Live Luciano Tortuga Cell / Informal Anarchist Federation, Indonesia Section, who are currently in prison before trial, having taken responsibility for setting fire to a BRI ATM bank in Yogyakarta on 7th of October ’11, by causing an explosion. The action was declared in solidarity with Luciano Tortuga, injured anarchist combatant of Chile, with revolutionary prisoners and fighters in Indonesia and across the world, in complicity with the international clash with capitalism and hierarchy.
Despite isolated conditions and the inevitable harsh and endless interrogations, the comrades never co-operated or collaborated with the repressive apparatus, and the application of the anti-terrorist law has not diminished them. The repressive wave which the Indonesian State and the mainstream media initiated against not only them, but against also autonomous spaces and individuals, and which extends into the continued murderous practices it employs across the islands, has failed to obscure the evident : that the Indonesia State and the corporations operating there are exploiters and terrorists.
This open letter comes alongside a continued call for international solidarity with the environmental, indigenous and anti-capitalist/anti-state struggle in Indonesia, and the imprisoned comrades additionally wanted to focus attention on places like Wera (Bima) where the people are resisting an iron mine, and also the situation of renewed social war in West Papua, as the rebels and the students are escalating the conflict against the police, military and the mafia Freeport McMoran Copper & Gold Inc..
You can read a previous flyer (with multiple language translations from the excellent Greek anarchist anti-info collective Contra-Info) about the general case here (nb. there was another person arrested who was subsequently released), plus a solidarity booklet by Actforfreedom/Elephant Editions is here.
It is possible to send financial aid via ABC Berlin.
Dear comrades, with respect, love and rage
It’s been 35 days since we were caught and we are sorry for writing this letter too long as our only possible communication comes only from our friends and lovers who still have the courage to meet us here. Direct letters are impossible.
We’ve been waiting to hear some news from you all and like a strong warm breeze in this climate of repression, we once more regain back our energy and strength to hear the sound of revolutionary solidarity and a warm feeling of comradeship from all combatants and prisoners of freedom around the world – especially when we have the chance to read a newspaper about some recent insurrection in Rome, Italy, it gave us both a warm feeling that comrades are still fighting for a true revolutionary change… and the spirit of insurrectionalism is still in the air like a light of hope – in this dim atmosphere of cages of repression.
We send our hugs to all the FAI members around the world (those who are free and imprisoned) and as well CCF members in Greece, our true revolutionary and warm feelings to all of you..
On a sad note, we are truly disappointed that some our local comrades who are inspired by fear and media sensationalism which make them to retreat from the front line but let’s put this aside, as we are still convinced that they still have the ideas in their heart of resistance… that would light the darkness once more in the glimmering light of passion for rebellion.
Warm hugs and salute to all combatants in Chile, Greece, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Germany, and all of the revolutionary anarchists who never back down in the face of repression.
Revolutionary Greetings and Hugs to all of you.

This important call-out for revolutionary solidarity with the struggle in Indonesia has been translated into several languages which can be found on the website Contra-Info, in Greek, Spanish, Italian, French, German and Portuguese.
October 7, 2011. At 2 am, Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI) ATM Bank in Sleman, Yogyakarta, is set on fire. The fire causes an explosion in the unit which destroys the premises. The sabotage is just one more instance of resistance in a country which is destroying it’s trees, mountains and coastlines for profit whilst oppressing its people.
Now 3 people are arrested [2 remain -Eat & Billy-, the third was released]. They are all accused of being involved in damaging the bank. We are not interested in finding out if the prisoners are “guilty” or not, nor of the extent of their “crime”. We will leave such speculation to the inquisitors and their servants in the press. We don’t need to know the details of the entire situation to know that as long as the state and the banks get rich from exploitation, there will always be those who will go against their power and refuse to collaborate. It is enough that these people are imprisoned, to wish that not just their prison, but every prison ceases to exist. “Crime” is no food on the table and the bosses taking the lion’s share. “Crime” is clear-cut forests and mining companies who beat and kill who they like with the help of the police. Freedom is fighting back and reclaiming your life from oppression.
What we know is that Indonesia is a regime which is propped up by western capitalists and militarists. It is a nation which tortures and massacres its opposition, like every state that can get away with it where it can.
Kulon Progo is a farming area near Yogyakarta, and in 2005 Jogja Magasa Mining and Indomines metal industries wanted to take the land for their industry. The farmers there didn’t give their land to the industrial company because they didn’t want nature to be destroyed by them. Many times the farmers tried to solve this without any riots, but it’s not working. Now they are ready to defend their lives.
It started when the company paid 300 people to destroy the houses of farmers and all the plants there.
It made all the farmers get angry and also lots of other people besides. Human dignity and nature just colonized by money, and there will never be any help to let the farmers survive. The police just covered up the people who were attacking the farmers because the company paid off the police. A typical story.
Tukijo was a farmer who was arrested and imprisoned just because he was vocal in the demonstrations against this situation. The people in Indonesia have made many activities around this matter : demonstrations, articles, movies, graffiti and property damage against the profiteering companies.
The farmers and the people of Kulon Progo, Pandang Raya, West Papua, Bima and elsewhere, are appealing for international solidarity and complicity in their struggle alongside the anarchists and anti-capitalists, who are all against the violent terror of the Indonesian bosses, their paid murderers and corporate backers. Don’t let them fight alone!
In accordance with the wishes of the farmers, we demand the land is given back to the farmers and freedom for our friends who are in prison because of this.
The State-Corporations-Military-Police are the Terrorists!
Freedom for Tukijo and those accused of attacking the BRI ATM Bank!
A few anarchists in solidarity.

7 October 2011
NEGARA-KORPORASI-POLISI-MILITER ADALAH TERORIS SEBENARNYA
“Pemberontakan sosial akan terus berlanjut karena mentari terus bersinar.”
Kali ini kami mengatakan, bahwa apa yang kami lakukan merupakan puncak dari semua kegelisahan serta kemarahan kami terhadap sistem yang sedang berjalan ini. Sistem yang memberhalakan uang, sistem yang merecoki keseharian masyarakat dengan televisi, agar mereka membeli barang-barang yang tak mereka perlukan agar mereka terus bekerja seperti mesin. Sistem yang mengharuskan kami beserta masyarakat lainnya tidak memiliki kendali atas hidup kita sendiri.
Sistem yang lainnya menguntungkan borjuis, para pebisnis, dan para birokrat negara yang menjadi sekutu setianya. Bagi kami semua, ini bukan saatnya untuk diam, bukan saatnya untuk tenang menonton acara di depan televisi dan berkata bahwa “semua baik-baik saja”.
Untuk setiap penindasan di Papua Barat.
Untuk setiap penindasan di Kulon Progo.
Untuk setiap penindasan bersejarah di Aceh.
Untuk setiap penindasan di Wera, Bima.
Untuk setiap penggusuran dan perampasan lahan di Takalar dan Pandan Raya di Makasar.
Untuk setiap penindasan terhadap kawan-kawan kami yang berjuang.
Untuk Tukijo dan para kombatan sosial yang mendekam di penjara hanya karena berjuang mempertahankan hak hidupnya.
Untuk setiap konsensi hutan yang akan menghancurkan setiap keanekaragaman hayati mengatasnamakan uang dan bisnis!
Dan untuk setiap penjara yang seharusnya terbakar rata dengan tanah.
Maka selama negara dan kapitalisme masih eksis, tak pernah akan ada kata damai antara mereka yang tak berpunya dengan mereka yang berpunya.
Penyerangan terhadap pusat-pusat finansial: ATM, bank, gedung korporat adalah target yang penting, karena mereka adalah salah satu kolaborator yang menyebabkan penderitaan di muka bumi ini. Ini bukanlah terorisme karena kami tidak mengadvokasikan untuk menyerang orang-orang, terorisme adalah peperangan antar negara. Terorisme adalah beras dan pangan di dapurmu yang semakin menipis. Terorisme adalah bajingan berseragam yang membawa senjata ke mana-mana. Terorisme adalah pembantaian orang-orang tak berpunya.
Maka kami mengatakan: sudah cukup!
Dan ini juga untuk kalian! Para kombatan yang tak pernah surut untuk berjuang di luar sana, meski kalian harus mendekam di jeruji besi karena keyakinan kalian akan kebebasan: Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (Yunani), kombatan Chile: Tortuga! Lives on! Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Thomas Meyer Falk (Germany) Polykarpos Georgiades, Revolutionary Struggle! Salut bagi kombatan Manado, Makassar, dan Bandung, kalian adalah inspirasi di tengah ketidakberdayaan masyarakat akan hidup mereka yang semakin tidak menentu dan tak berdaya.
“Biarkan api menyala dalam kegelapan!”
Long Live Luciano Tortuga Cell – International Revolutionary Front – FAI
STATES-CORPORATIONS-MILITARY-POLICE ARE THE TERRORISTS
“Social rebellion will continue as the sun continues to shine.”
This time we say, that what we are doing is the culmination of all our anxieties and anger against a system that is running this. Systems that idolize money, a system that nags the public daily with television, so they buy things they do not need so that they continue to work like a machine. System that required us and other people to not have control over our own lives.
Another system that benefits the bourgeoisie, the businessmen, and state bureaucrats who become loyal allies. For us all, this is not the time to be quiet, not the time to calmly watch the event in front of the television and say that “all is okay”.
For each incident of repression in West Papua.
For each incident of oppression in Kulon Progo.
For every historic repression in Aceh.
For each incident of oppression in Wera, Bima.
For any evictions and land seizures in Takalar and Pandan Raya in Makassar.
For each of the oppression of our comrades who are struggling.
To Tukijo and social combatants languishing in jail just because of fighting for their life right.
For each forest concession that would destroy any biodiversity on behalf of money and business!
And for every prison should have burned to the ground.
So long as the state and capitalism still exist, never will there be words of peace between those dispossessed by those who are propertied.
Attacks on financial centers: ATMs, banks, corporate buildings is an important target, because they are one of the collaborators who cause suffering on this earth.
This is not because we do not advocate terrorism to attack the people, terrorism is a war between countries. Terrorism is rice and food in your kitchen that are running low. Terrorism is a crook in uniform who carries weapons everywhere. Terrorism is the massacre of the dispossessed.
So we say: enough!
Tortuga! The combatants who never stopped to fight out there, although you have to crouch on the bars but you have freedom of thought: Conspiracy of Cells of Fire (Greece), combatants in Chile: Tortuga! Lives on! Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Thomas Meyer Falk (Germany) Polykarpos Georgiades, Revolutionary Struggle! Kudos for the combatants in Manado, Makassar, and Bandung, you are an inspiration in the middle of the powerlessness of their lives that society makes increasingly uncertain and helpless.
“Let the fire burn in the darkness!”

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.

Statement from Revolutionary Organisation – Informal Anarchist Federation, Indonesia Section (Indonesia)
Wednesday, July 6th, 2011
325 receives and transmits:
Bandung, Indonesia – Cells of International Conspiracy for Revenge, a few days ago, have claimed responsibility by spreading leaflets surrounding the ATM BNI firebombings. The leaflet is almost the same tone as in Makassar and Manado:
“PT Indomining (Bima) has been brutally repressing the local population, Jogja Magasa International wants to evict 30,000 farmers in Kulon Progo. Farmers in Takalar are facing the threat of land-grabbing. These actions are carried out in a brutal way, including shootings, terror, sexual harassment as well as the various forms of repression that we never hear about in the mainstream media.
That’s not surprising because these capitalist-bureaucratic companies do not care about anything except making their wallet thicker!”
“Our attacking of an ATM (bank) is an important target, because banks are always involved in financing natural resources and the repression of the people in the name of capital! We have no intention of injuring anyone, the destruction of property is not violence! No mercy for the forces of repression! No mercy for the State and Capitalism.”
Got Ist Tot – Free Association of Individualist-Communists.
Salute to: Revolutionary Organisation – Conspiracy of Cells of Fire. The Revolutionary Struggle. The Chilean insurrectionists. Giannis Dimitrakis and Polykarpos Georgiades, our hearts are with you!
Long Live the Rebellion and stay free. And with this statement we claim to join the RO-FAI, Indonesian Section.
