San Francisco: Anarchists attack Indonesian consulate with Paint-bombs against May Day repression (USA)
Monday, June 3rd, 2019
On June 1, a modest mob of 20+ anarchists in San Francisco carried out an attack in solidarity with our comrades in so-called Indonesia where 600+ anarchists were arrested this May Day. We threw 60 paintbombs and heavily tagged the Indonesian Consulate with circle-(A)s to send a message to the Indonesian government that despite the distance between us and our comrades, the State is not safe and will always be attacked.
The actions of the Indonesian comrades, simple gestures of paint on walls, resonated with us. In the afterimages of their act, and in their call for solidarity, we recognized friends across the dying ocean. Even more than expressing our contempt for the Indonesian State, we want to convey our love to the comrades struggling within and against its false borders. Ferocity and Strength to those facing repression and those on the run. (more…)

Athens, Greece: Responsibility Claim for the Arson Attack against Eurobank branch
We were taught that everything is commodity, everything can be exchanged. We didn’t understand the small print of history: that we are commodity too; working power that is exchanged with peanuts, prayers and curses, and a daily reverence to alienation, to the shattering of every human dignity. We referred to the wage slavery as our highest value and intention. We didn’t feel the waves of history carving our skin, we didn’t feel the razor blades of political economy chiseling our motion.
We ‘ve shown discipline to our times’ teachings, which are nothing more than the dominant narrative that wants us producing and consuming machines, that wants for itself the monopoly of the decision about what is included and what is excluded by its normativity. A dominant narrative by a dominant world that leaves its bloody marks on us everyday, fracturing the individual, feeding it with oppression and neuroses, killing every desire for experimentation and vitality and replacing them with miserable micro-rivalries and intrigue, disguising the emptiness.

Tourism grows like flowers in the spring, security cameras appear like leaves to protect the peaceful citizens. Everything must be clear, beautiful and in developmental path. The appearance of the city should fit into the list of Aegean Airlines. Tourists do not need a lot, some chain stores and hipster coffeeshops, a good guide to explaining which places to avoid, and something that fits into the “authentic Greek experience”. We look forward to the next group of tourists who will take a selfie around the Acropolis.At the same time, our neighborhood degrades slowly. People who can not respond to the increase of rent price are either forced to find another home to stay or are forced to comply with the new rules. At the same time, investors are exacerbating the situation as they buy old houses, which are being demolished and, in their place, they are building luxurious housing estates. Apartments renovated for short-term rent (AIRBNB) as well as public spaces and parks are privatized reducing free and open spaces. The game is as old as the same city is listening to the name of private property . The rule is also simple: whoever does not own, will pay, whoever does not pay will be expelled. People who are not part of the capitalist machine, little illegal sellers and homeless people, illegal graffiti and political posters, life in general, and things that can not be sold will disappear. We know very well that nothing will be given to us because we do not belong to the owners’ side. We know that we do not even fit into this suffocating capitalist context, nor do we want to keep up with the logic of bosses and investors. That is why we are fighting against their expansionist and developmental plans.On Tuesday 9/04, we visited a boutique (as they call it) of luxury apartments, which is in its final stage of implementation, on Kolokotroni street between Koukaki and Petralona. Kolokotroni Street is a street with several old or abandoned houses, and it seems that the crows of the construction company from Glyfada have put it in the goal. During our visit, we put a banner that read: “RICH PEOPLE GET BACK TO YOUR SUBURBS, HOUSING IS NOR A LIFESTYLE NEITHER A PRODUCT, IT’S A NEED (A)”, we throw paint on the freshly painted walls and advertisements of the company, write slogans and open holes or even completely tear apart interior walls. Nevertheless, investors insist on forcing us to a second visit and today they have put cameras thinking that we will stop.
OUTSIDE THE INVESTORS FROM OUR NEIGHBORHOOD AGAINST AIRBNB AND LUXURY APARTMENTS NO ATTACK TOWARDS OUR LIFE WILL STAY WITHOUT ANSWER IF WE DON’T GET ORGANIZED IN ALL NEIGHBOURHOODS, OUR CITIES WILL BECOME MODERN PRISONS

FUEGO, INCENDIO Y MEMORIA POR MAURICIO MORALES
”No retrocedemos: estamos aquí. No intentamos: podemos. No mendigamos: robamos. No borramos: quemamos.
No esperamos: ardemos de impaciencia… La Conspiración nunca será arrestada, porque no se trata simplemente
de una organización sino de un flujo de ideas, y a las ideas no se les puede detener… ”

Wednesday 8, Black May.
We installed two explosive devices in the building of the Service of Internal Taxes (SII), located at 281 General del Canto Street, Providencia.
In the face of progress and development, materialized today in projects such as TPP-11 and the APEC Summit, we recognize the need to lift different forms of organization, betting on the proliferation of links, spaces and networks that converge in attack and resistance.
With this action we remember the anarchists Mauricio Morales and Zoé Aveilla, who risked everything for a world free of domination.
MEMORY, HONOR AND COMBAT!
LONG LIVE ANARCHY!

OUR THEORY: communication through PRACTICE. Attack 2
… The battles against Amazon or Google sites: Rightfully, attacks against the infrastructure of the almost daily mentioned „technological attack“ are carried out with a certain regularity. Often the criticism is directed against the always as more extensive perceived surveillance that seems to prevent us increasingly from becoming rebellious.
To counter this, the nightly action becomes a little more thoughtful, secret or even technically sophisticated each time. In the claims of responsibility it is written for the thousandth time why it is legitimate to attack x,y,z, or why an event a has now been followed by action b, as we also did in the first part of this series (https://actforfree.nostate.net/?p=33432).

On the weekend of 28th and 29th of April, 2 ATMs were burned in Vienna (Austria) as a message of solidarity with the comrade Lisa, who is imprisoned at the moment in Barcelona. She was charged for robbing a bank in Germany.
We don’t want to live in a capitalist world, in which consumption and property are forming the center of being.
An action to strengthen ourselves, so we will never stop attacking these realities in all places – against the domination of capitalism and state, against prison and all other forms of incarceration and oppression
– for sticking together and for freedom!

On a night in May, 2 banks, Bank of Ireland and an AIB were vandalized in South Dublin. Slogans of “HOMES FOR ALL”, “BURN THE BANKS”, and “CLASS WAR” spray painted on windows and walls. Also 4 ATM’s were glued up, how this was done was by using cardboard the same thickness, width, and half the length of an ATM card, inserted into the card slot and then super glue poured in. (more…)
Berlin, Germany: Attack against an office of the leftist party „Die Linke“ – Solidarity to Squats in Athens and Berlin
Tuesday, May 7th, 2019
Late Saturday evening, May 4, we committed an attack with stones against the store front of the office from Sebastian Schlüsselburg, member of the Committee on Justice and Secret Service, parliamentarian of „Die Linke“ in the district of Berlin-Lichtenberg. Most of its windows were smashed.
This is our direct answer to the latest events for which these political representatives of pure social-darwinism hold responsibility. To be mentioned first is the voting in the parliament of the district (BVV) Lichtenberg for the plans of construction of the stupid waterpark in the Rummelsburg Bay, which is another project for the city of the rich and tourists. This includes the eviction of homeless people, who squatted an area in the bay with their tents. It is clearly visible what role the leftist parties play in this process. After their usual approaches towards the resistance, finally ALL of them voted for the construction. (more…)
Atentado incendiario a bus del transantiago y ataque armado a policías + Reivindicacion de la “Coordinadora Informal-Grupúsculo Iconoclasta” (Chile)
Monday, May 6th, 2019
El 18 de abril de 1989 los jóvenes Ivan Palacios (19) y Erick Rodriguez (20) tras participar activamente en un grupo de acción y resistencia a la dictadura que se encontraba infiltrado desde sus comienzos, se disponen a colocar una carga explosiva en un transformador de luz ubicado en Avenida San Pablo con Radal, en las cercanías de la población Simon Bolivar.
La acción estaba avisada a efectivos de la CNI (Central Nacional de Inteligencia) quienes prepararon una emboscada donde acribillaron a ambos jóvenes miristas.
Desde entonces en la población Simón Bolívar se recuerda esa fecha con actividades, velatones, manifestaciones y enfrentamientos con la policía. (more…)

For May Day we claim responsibility for the following actions:
-Deflating the tires and painting the windshield of a yuppie housing shuttle bus.
-Throwing paint at the facade of two OCF properties.
-Smashing glass and cutting all non-hydraulic cables of at least four construction machines at the site of a development project intending to manicure a once wild place.
All of our targets are part of the ongoing gentrification of the city.
Solidarity with the comrades in Italy facing repression.
On May Day anarchists aren’t sleeping!

Local newspapers have reported that a TV and mobile phone tower was set on fire in Terragnolo, in the Potrich (Trentino) area on April 16th at around 10PM. Painted slogans reading “Solidarity With Anarchist Prisoners”, “Stop Video Conferencing” (which replaces prisoner transfers to court hearings), “Stop Blocking Mail” and “The Spirit Continues” were found at the site.
Of the four incendiary bottles used to start the fire, only one managed to ignite the cables, the other three that were located inside the electrical transformers failed to ignite due to ‘lack of oxygen’ according to the carabiniers [paramilitary police] in charge of the investigation. A person who lived nearby spotted the flames from the street and notified the fire brigade, however they arrived to late to prevent many of the cables from burning. This location is also part of a region that has been selected to experience the 5G network in the near future.
Technicians were able to restore TV service during the night, however mobile phone reception is still not properly restored.

Fire To The Prisons

Comment from the team Effect Monroe
[presented in Russian social media]
We watched the film “Popular Front.Ukrainian militant anarchists.” Production, directorial work are at a high level and do not cause questions, but we will comment on the focus of journalists on one anarchist group, Revolutionary Dia. Let’s go over the news headlines from Ukraine for 2018, which are also available in English:
05/19/2018 Anarchists burned the crossover / anarchist revenge group “Svyatoshinskaya golytba”
05/21/2018 In Kiev, anarchists set fire to Lexus,belonging to deputy chairman of the EPU Grachev / “Fedos Schus” cell
09/19/2018 In Kiev, anarchists attacked the training center of the Ministry of Internal Affairs/ Ilya Romanov cell
In addition, the anonymous attacks in 2018, mentioned in the film Revolutionary Anarchists in BUR’18:
01/04/2018 Arson of municipal police cars
04/15/2018 The explosion at the Kyivenergo building
06/22/2018 Arson of the Oschadbank branch.
The rebels regularly declared about attacks in Ukraine until 2018 – while the communiques are signed by different groups: in half of the cases, these actions are claimed by FAI–IRF, the “Informal Anarchist Federation”. This is an active trend in Ukrainian anarchism which is quite different from the ideology of “Revdia” – therefore, in our opinion, the authors of the film should have taken this into account.

“Many of our people died, but you could not destroy anarchy.
Its roots are too deep,
it was born in the bosom of a rotten society that is collapsing,
it is a violent reaction against the established order,
it represents the aspirations of freedom and equality
who come to break authoritarianism.
It is everywhere, which makes it indomitable,
and in the end it will end up winning and it will kill you.”
Governments of the past and present have succeeded with the murderous and neo-colonialist policies of neo-liberalism. When it comes to hostile reception of refugees or fueling xenophobia and racism, European countries and all Western governments have promoted and financed wars and created social destabilization where it is convenient to preserve the interests of the oil, arms and mineral trades. The consequences of these death policies are managed today with an iron fist resulting in the closure of borders and ports, deportations, murders at sea and arrests at the borders. (more…)

[B] OUR THEORY: communication through PRACTICE. Attack 1
In “The Autism of the Insurgents“, Alfredo Cospito addresses, among other things, the question of theory formation in declarations of action. Not only recently, but increasingly again, people have referred to each other in their explanations of actions [en]. In the process, theoretical aspects have been and are still being written – even if only to a limited extent in most cases.
The connection between theory and practice is an old, but also always recent problem, which active people will be confronted with over and over again. So why not end the false conflict about the balance between theory and practice once and for all? Why not drive Cospito’s communication via actions to its extreme? Why not simply convey theory in the form of practice with the corresponding explanations?
Theory as practice. To ensure that the people who discuss the practice are the ones who are responsible for it and not some secluded intellectuals who do not get tired of making suggestions without acting practically themselves.
A springboard for these intellectuals far short of any practice who never tire of preaching the need for democratic and “peaceful” reforms in a world of social war is, in 2019, the university. As an introduction to the field of theory as practice, we have selected the Institute for Social Sciences of the Humboldt University Berlin as a place of knowledge production. During the night from the 27th to the 28th of
march we smashed a few windows of the ivory tower of the elite university to make clear that the battle for society will ultimately be fought on the streets and not in the lecture hall.
