Greetings and solidarity
To all the prisoners of war we call comrades.
My name is Jock Palfreeman, I’ve served almost 4 years of a 20 year sentence for defending two Roma against a nationalist attack of 15. I was charged with the murder of one and the attempted murder of another. My case is documented further at freejock.com and I don’t wish to waste words on it here.
For almost 4 years now I’ve been officially kidnapped in Sofia Central Prison – state of Bulgaria. The realities of my case censured from the Bulgarian public by a state sponsoring media. I stay strong and look forward to the next 16 years as I know with all the essence of my being that what I did was right.
Prisoners of War are not victims of injustice like the “liberals” speak about in their self-justifying wank. We are willing enemies of the capitalist state and their organs. (more…)

“With this communiqué we claim responsibility for the railway sabotage directed at a rail security electronics installation at Rekola in Vantaa. For this action we only needed a crowbar, some toilet paper, a few canisters of gasoline and a light. We broke in through the door and used toilet paper soaked in lighter fluid as a fuse, so we could flee the scene in peace before the arrival of the police and the fire department.
The decision to take action again was aided by the mass media’s response to the communiqué that was sent to the Takku.net site on June 6th, claiming numerous instances of sabotage over the last few months. The media’s outrageous accusations toward the comrades in Social Center Satama and the mixing up of the Roma migrants to these actions only displays what kind of scum we are dealing with. You can blame yourselves for the latest action.
The representatives of the media left the anarchist prisoners all over the world (and especially in the nine states we phoned in bomb threats to on June 6th), for whom the actions were also carried out in solidarity to – as well as to the Roma people and Social Center Satama, completely uncovered. As long as the situation of our comrades is not brought to light, we will strike against targets that are relevant to capital and the state.
Attacks on the railway network are as old as the anarchist movement itself. We are proud to continue the legacy of rebellious anarchy in our localities and we do so with confidence and a readiness to confront the possible consequences.
We once again send our subversive greetings to our comrades in Social Center Satama, the Roma migrants in Helsinki and anarchist prisoners all over the world. You are not alone!
We send warm greetings to our Chilean comrade Luciano Pitronello Schuffeneger, who was seriously injured when a bomb prematurely exploded outside a bank in Santiago de Chile. We also send greetings to the United States to Marie Mason, Eric McDavid, Grant Barnes and the other ecoanarchist prisoners on the international day of solidarity of June 11th.
Fire to the prisons!
To spread the rebellion everywhere – direct action and solidarity!”

The following communique was originally published in the Finnish anarchist portal Takku.net. During the last weekend an Islamist blogger tried to take credit for the bomb and molotov cocktails, until an anarchist communique was published on Monday 6.6.11, putting the attacks within the anti-state/anti-capitalist frame of struggle. Mainstream media news can be found here: 1 & 2
From the comrades:
“Tuesday night 13.4.2011 we burned five dumpsters at Pukinmäki train station in Helsinki. We also wrote some slogans for free spaces on some walls.
During the next two nights we burned dumpsters at several places in the city of Vantaa.
Tuesday 19.4. we attacked the police; we set up a bonfire on the street, and when the police showed up, we greeted them with stones and paint bombs. The police responded by attacking the nearby Social Centre Satama, which they found empty after a long siege and assault inside.
During the night 31.5.-1.6. in the district of Pukinmäki, Helsinki, we closed the Kenttätie-road, frequently used by the police, by setting several dumpsters on fire.
Early Friday morning 3.6. in the Helsinki district of Pasila, we put a bomb under Turvatiimi’s (a private security company) car. Although the bomb was fully functional, we decided not to explode it, to ensure that bystanders and workers in other nearby companies wouldn’t be put in danger. This is also why we placed the bomb so that everyone in the courtyard could see it.
Early Saturday morning 4.6. we attacked two gas stations with molotov cocktails in the Helsinki district of Tapaninvainio.
Monday morning 6.6. we called bomb threats to the following embassies: Belarus, Russia, Spain, Mexico, Chile, United States, Germany, Greece, Italy.
We chose these countries because of the ongoing struggles there. We wanted to make the representatives of these countries feel a bit of the fear, that our anarchist comrades face in their everyday struggle against the violence machine of the state.
With these attacks we want to show our solidarity to the comrades of Social Centre Satama and their struggle for free space. We also send revolutionary greetings to the Roma migrants in Helsinki, who are oppressed daily by the violent apparatus of the state.
With these attacks we also express our support to every anarchist prisoner, and want to remind that the struggle will continue despite the attempts at repression by the state. The time of empty talk is over, long live anarchy!“
