Yvelines, France: Arson Attack Against a Telecommunications Relay Tower Cuts Off TV, Internet and Mobile Signals for Several Days
Thursday, July 12th, 2018
11.07.18: Shhhh! Don’t tell anybody that at dawn on Thursday, July 5th, a few hours before the World Cup quarter-finals, we put a TV broadcasting tower out of action between Saint-Rémy and Chevreuse, in Yvelines, the main department of all digital communications.
Don’t tell anybody that the ‘technical problem’ was in fact an arson attack that destroyed its transmission cables, completely cutting off until today not just the television, but also the internet and three mobile phone operators (Free, Sfr and Bouygues) signals for the whole area.
Let’s continue to sabotage the spectacle.
Let’s attack all the technological cages.

When you set out at night with the intention of burning or putting something out of action, interrupting the paralysis inherent in everyday life, you never know exactly what you will find once you are on the street. Which is how it was one night in mid-June when we came across a Diplomatic Corp car and one belonging to ENJOY* parked side by side next to the footpath. If until then, they had been united together in the same shitty existence in service of devastation, power and domination, we could not help but see their willingness to share the same demise together. And so, just like it was with some excavators in France not long ago, we took note of their will by enjoying the sight of the flames that enveloped them.
We hope that despite the high temperatures of recent days that the heat of this fire may bring a smile to all the comrades locked up in prisons, subjected to judicial controls or under surveillance…
To the Argentine comrade Diego Parodi… Strength, hold on!
To those facing investigation for the G20 in Hamburg.
For the prisoners and the accused of Operation Scripta Manent.
For Giova, Ghespe and Paska.
*Translation note: ENJOY is a ‘sustainable’ vehicle sharing company run by energy company ENI and public transport operator Trenitalia

06.07.18: Last night we destroyed 6 Deutsche Bahn (German Railways) vehicles near Frankfurt West railway station. We are opposed to German support for the war of aggression by the Turkish government in Northern Syria as well as the ongoing raids and arrests of left-wing activists.
We set fire to six Deutsche Bahn vehicles used for making repairs. We deliberately carried out our action in a way that ensured there was no danger to anybody. Deutsche Bahn is a leading logistics partner of NATO. Dying and killing in the name of our ‘democracies’ is not an option for us. We will continue to side with the revolutionary forces in Syria and elsewhere.
Here in Germany there are enough reasons too, we do not even know where to start with this police state: the complete erosion of what once referred to itself as a constitutional state. Mass public manhunts. The raids against German technology associations because they have a donation account for a legal US email provider and for using an email address that was used to promote protests against the AFD! (Alternative for Deutschland, right-wing populist party)* Or the banning of Linksunten Indymedia. Or the arrests in the Rhine-Main area for alleged participation in the G20 protests. Or the searches in France, because those affected allegedly raised their arms at the G20. What a complete misunderstanding of every situation in the Schanze.**

On Wednesday, June 27th, 2018, the managers of Société Le Nickel (SLN), a subsidiary of the French company Eramet in New Caledonia, publicly complained about repeated sabotage targeting nickel mining and transportation infrastructure.
The sabotages have all been targeting an 11km conveyor that is used to transport the nickel ore from the deposit to the Kouaoua site (north-east of Grande-Terre) at the seaside, where around 200 people are directly employed. On June 23rd, during the last arson attack against this ‘treadmill’ that is nicknamed The Serpent, a stolen vehicle was placed under the infrastructure and then set on fire.
The financial cost related to these multiple sabotages amounts to 150 million CFP francs (1.25 million euros) for the company.
For the time being, SLN “does not plan to close its Kouaoua center”, from which about 600,000 of the three million tonnes of ore that the company refines at its Noumea plant are extracted each year.
Until now, only one person has been arrested for these serial sabotages, a 31 year old man who was sentenced on June the 19th to 18 months in prison without parole. At the court case he had questioned “pollution” and the “promises” of public facilities that were not kept by SLN.
In New Caledonia, attacks against mining companies do not end in truces. Recently SLN suffered major damage not only to its Kouaoua site, but also at Thio during the transition to the year 2018. Other mining companies, such as Groupe Ballande, lost 5 vehicles and a workshop to the flames in Canala in early January 2018.
‘Black and Green Arsonists’ take responsibility for Animal Liberation arsons – Green Nemesis #3 – Athens (Greece)
Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018
Here we reproduce the report of the incendiary attack from ‘Black and Green Arsonists’ – their claim of responsibility for Green Nemesis Act 3. We note that the rhetoric of ‘indiscriminate attack’ can lend itself to the green authoritarianism of the Church of Eco-Extremism, and whilst the attacks don’t possess the attributes of an authoritarian action it is worth being clear. There is a big difference between indiscriminately attacking the enemies and indiscriminately attacking random individuals. The communique has several interesting points about animal/earth liberationist struggle and we are happy to reproduce it. Until all are free.
Anonymous (delayed) report:
On October 28, we made a double hit in the area of Zografou, burning a truck / refrigerator for meat transportation, with an incendiary mechanism. We also attacked a hunter’s car by breaking and burning gasoline in its interior. We also take responsibility for the Green Nemesis Act 3.
We indiscriminately attack what contributes to the incarceration, abuse and misery of animals. Whether this is a cosmetic showcase or a butcher, etc.
People from the very old age used the animals for their benefit. With the development of technology and its means, the exploitation of animals grew, while the value of life was undermined. Anthropocentrism is the one that leads millions of animals to death in order to become food, and not only. Workshops full of experimental animals. Also people still use animals for their own fun.

Unknown persons destroyed the windows of the Russian visacenter in Kanalstr. 14a, Hamburg, the night of the 22.06. Also “FUCK FIFA!”, “FIGHT REPRESSION!” and”(A)” was spraypainted to the facade.
Since autumn 2017 there happen repressive attacks against anarchists in different Russian cities, in Belarus and on Krim. With torture, intimidation, blackmail and imprisonment they are targeted. At the same time the football worldcup is one of the biggest spectacles of power that is happening in Russia. The rich can enrich themself even more and behind the cameras, all this, as with the Olympic games or summit-meetings, can be used to develop repression and control against maginalised, poor and unwanted social groups and to develop aggressive gentrification.
Freedom and solidarity don’t need Visa!

Urgent Call from HAMBACH FOREST
The courtcase which gave the Forest of Hambach a little more time to prepare for cutting season is lost. RWE started today with clearing bushes to prepare for total cutting. The preparations for an massive police action are obviously building. They announced that they want to evict the whole occupation. We expect them at the latest on Monday for evictions. They are already in the forest protecting machinery.
But to make it possible that Hambach Forest stays we need you and your frieds/comr@des!
At best come around.
At best bring with you:
– sleeping bag, mattress
– your friends
– an idea of what you wanna do (the Infrastructre of RWE is too huge for them to protect it all)
– waterproof boots, camouflage-clothing
– camera (for recording police violence)
– working gloves
– 1st aid stuff
– a small tent (not necessary but if you have)
– no drugs
– no passport (if you need it for travelling, bury it somewhere in the woods)
What you can do from outside:
– spread the news
– do what ever you like to show solidarity
– distract police forces (they will need cops from all germany to evict us)
– attack the veins of capitalism & its fossil fuel industry
– dont get caught
– dont forget them in the cages
See you on the barricades
Naarm / Melbourne, so-called Australia: Serco Compound Attacked in Solidarity with Refugees in Detention
Sunday, November 26th, 2017
19.11.17: Tonight, a group of people in Naarm / Melbourne, responding to the call out for 8 Days of Solidarity for Refugees, undertook an action targeting Serco. Serco is a multinational corporation which is directly responsible for the inhumane incarceration conditions faced by refugees, asylum seekers, and detainees, in so-called Australia. Serco is also a major player in the international privatised prison complex.
The group gained access to a central Naarm / Melbourne, Serco compound and immobilised 7 vehicles. The group also left spray-painted messages on Serco compound property, including vehicles, reading “Serco Psycho Scum”, “Serco, profiting from refugee detention- this is war”, and “Serco profits from misery, we hold YOU responsible”.

Network of Revolutionary Cells: ‘Call to Fight: Sabotage the activities of those bastards!’ (Czech Republic)
Sunday, November 19th, 2017
We see that the repressive campaign on the anarchist movement does not cease. Examples are enough: The operation Fénix case in the Czech Republic, the case of the Warsaw Three, charges of bank robbery in Aachen, courts with rebels against the G20 summit in Hamburg and other cases.
Cops, judges, prosecutors, mass-media. They are haunted, imprisoned, robbed, manipulated. This is a challenge to all Revolutionary cells and other groups and individuals. Do sabotages the activities of those bastards. Turn them into terrain, technology and structures. Organize resistance. Support the fugitive and their loved ones.
What destroys us will stop by fighting.
The goal is clear = Freedom, justice, anarcho-communism.

On the 17th of November, the leaders of the nations of the European Union gathered in Gothenburg for the EU summit. The EU maintains its external borders vigilantly, leading to countless deaths of people trying to enter Europe. Internally, the border controls returned during the latest “refugee-crisis”, and at the Swedish border they are still in place. Borders and deportations protect the rich and powerful of the European societies, at the price of murder and incarceration, and they manifest themselves clearly in passports and police.
The police willingly do the insidious work of controlling the borders and carrying out deportations. At the same time, the EU gives the police forces of the member states extended possibilities for repressive cooperation, enabling them to exchange information and issue arrest warrants for sought-after people across the EU.
The police mobilized massively to protect the EU summit in Gothenburg, so we decided to strike somewhere else, away from their attention.
For these reasons, and many more, we attacked the passport office of the police in Malmö with rocks on the night of the EU summit.
We send warm rebellious greetings to those who fight against borders and nationstates and to those who fought the police on the 30th of September when Nazis were marching in Gothenburg, especially to those who are now jailed or going to trial for the events on that day.

We wanted to dedicate this action to all our kidnapped friends, or those who have been kidnapped once, by setting fire to 4 trucks from one of the biggest milk companys in finland named valio. The action took place in a city named tampere in the early morning hours of this tuesday. Many of our cell have wanted to target this company for a long time. We think that it is not necessary to explain too much the reason of our selection: the milk industry has a long history of destruction, cruelty and torture on this planet, its ecosystem and their habitants. Like our friends the cows and the forests. Who are cruelly abused and murdered or destroyed by the production of milk.”

Animal Liberation Front comrades in UK are getting active again despite years of repression and clampdowns by the state. Here’s a quick list of actions that happened over the last month. Reports from Bite Back:
8 November 2017
“Several turkeys liberated from concentration camps (aka farms) in the UK last night.”

In the night between the 17th and 18th of October we vandalized the entrance of the Argentinian embassy in Copenhagen with paint. We also wrote the name Santiago Maldonado and a circled A.
We did this because the Argentinian state is responsible for the disappearance of the anarchist Santiago Maldonado that happened more than two months ago. A few days after our action we heard the sad news that his dead body had been found. The state and the police are responsible! We are angry!

We are confronting technology to the extent that it is a tool in the hand of the bosses and capitalism, taking away our capabilities practical or not. Their target is to establish any kind of technology as crucial for each one of us, to enslave each mind and body to one or the other technological means that at first sight makes our lives easier and more pleasant.
The real consequence on the other hand, is the destruction of social and human relations and of the earth and nature. All of this for the development of robust social control and making profits.
An inner part of the technological complex is telecommunications, which cause people many harmful symptoms. (more…)

Orbeil (Puy-de-Dôme), France – Summer barbecues of repeaters (22/08/2017)
As you reach to the top of the hill there’s the Great Bear right above your head. And then, below, you see the lights of Issoire, which make war on the stars in the sky. And above all, above everything, there’s a repeater next to you, which reminds you that you didn’t come to recite poetry. Light up the fire…
In the early hours of 22nd August we set fire up there on the hill. In Moidias, two repeaters that serve the telephone line from Issore to Brioude and the broadcasting of many radio frequencies went up in flames. As we couldn’t turn off the city lights, at least we switched off the smartphones .
Because this world is too narrow, it aims at the normalization, control, sterilization and digitalization of any individuality. Because we wanted to give ourselves a breath of air, feel alive rather than suffocate. True, this desire for destruction could have been satisfied with an attack on Red Cross premises, a breeding farm or a migrant detention centre. We attack so as not to be yet another architect of power’s structures. We attack for immediate pleasure and not for a hypothetical radiant future.
As pointed out in other claims, technology – which keeps us immobile and colonizes our imagination – is one of the pillars of civilization. If we agree with this, we cannot be satisfied with a mere exchange of ideas. So we looked for sensitive points on which to act. By burning repeaters, we not only aim at inflicting the greatest damage on the promoters of technological prosthesis. It’s a way of communicating, interacting, sabotaging civilization. (more…)
