Athens: Responsibility claim for incendiary attack against Hellenic Post branch in Nea Smyrni by ‘Incendiary Disobedience Cell’ (Greece)
Monday, March 21st, 2016
“Who will shatter the rock that for millennia has sat upon individual autonomy? For so long now learning to live has meant learning to die.”
How many years of commercial society? How many more of “civilised” existence? And all this for what? We take part in the most paranoid experiment of human domination. From the early stages of domestication up to economy’s invasion into life, oppression, exploitation and coercion have been the most structural components of society. The Power’s structures and logics have strived to ensure their presence over the centuries, transformed themselves, gained flexibility by stepping on human relations and finally imposed their universality through the commercialisation of existence. Non-compliance margins have narrowed. The ways of vomiting “needless waste” are being humanised. The sometimes aggressive and sometimes passive indifference of the capitalist world towards the sustainability of human or nonhuman beings, that are deemed unnecessary in various ways, is discernible at a glance, not very far away. How many bodies stacked dead or alive in seas or the coldness of gray rooms?
There are no excuses in the face of the existent; everyone sees, everyone knows. The expression of our position towards this situation takes shape through anarchist action. We’ll avoid distant and hypothetical analysis. We know that (not only in our own lives) the moments of freedom are so assimilable into the repeated everyday routine that we are unable to imagine any possible turn of events. The only sure thing is that we feel this world to be unbearably hooked in our skin, and the more we attack it, the less it leaves its marks on us.
While some were sleeping exhausted and dazzled by a three-day weekend of frenzied consumption and entertainment, some chose to swing into action. In the early hours of Tuesday March 15th 2016, we torched and destroyed a van and an ATM of the Hellenic Post (ELTA) branch in the district of Nea Smyrni, Athens. Because of the fire’s extent, the branch acquired a new facade as well.
Also this is a minimum act of complicity with incarcerated comrades that have recently faced or are once again facing the halls of judges and prosecutors. Strength to Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar, the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, Revolutionary Struggle, as well as all imprisoned anarchists around the world, and everyone who in any way contribute to the intensification of anarchist war against Power.
PS. And because memory is integral to the continuation of anarchist struggle we cannot but recall the death of comrade Lambros Foundas, on March 10th 2010, after an armed clash with cops.

On March 11th 2016, we cut the counterweights along the catenary of Avilés/Xixón rail line in both directions. The cuts were made at the height of the town of Villabona, locality where our comrades Mónica and Francisco are held hostage. These cuts produce a voltage drop on the line forcing a halt to train traffic, causing serious delays and economic losses. The action aims to send a warm revolutionary hug to our comrades on the occasion of the trial/farce organised by the Spanish State.
Also solidarity graffiti were painted on the two signs of the -penitentiary centre- indicating where they are held hostage.
Love for freedom, and hate of those who take it from us

On Monday, March 7 between 2 and 4 am, on the eve of the trial that intends to bury alive (the prosecution demands 44 years) anarchist comrades Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar, who were remanded more than two years ago, we put out of action several bank ATMs of Santander (Spanish origin) with a hammer, paint and left noise bombs in these branches:
Calle 13-32 La Plata
Moreno 2300 Capital
We left flyers vindicating our comrades.
With this gesture of solidarity we are with those who face the powerful and their world.
Freedom to Monica and Francisco!
Love and encouragement… long live sabotage!
Buenos Aires, Argentina: Sabotajes coordinados a cajeros automaticos ensolidaridad con Monica y Francisco.
El dìa lunes 7 de marzo entre las 2 y las 4 am en visperas del jucio que pretende enterrar en vida (la fiscalia pide 44años) a los compañeros anarquistas Monica Caballero y Francisico Solar en prision preventiva hace mas de 2 años, dejamos inhabilitados varios cajeros automaticos del banco Santander (de origen Español) a martillazos, con pintura y bomba de ruido en las sucursales:
Calle 13-32 La Plata

Dejando volantes reivindicando a lxs compañerxs.
Con este gesto nos solidarizamos con aquellos que enfrentan al poder y su mundo.
Libertad a Monica y Francisco!
Cariño y aliento… Viva el sabotaje.

In the night between 28 and 29 January the headquarters of Rotodyne offices in Saronno was hit by a Molotov cocktail. Rotodyne develops equipment for the maintenance and construction of helicopters and warplanes (EH 101, NH-90, EuroFighter Typhoon), including the Lockheed F35 Lightning, designed and used by the Marines, the aeronautic and the US navy, as well as by many other NATO countries, including Italy.
The distributors of its products, and the companies with which it collaborates, are Alenia-Airmacchi, Augusta Westland (Finmeccanica group), Aereotech, Patria Helicopters.
Its products have been adopted by the Danish, Irish, Greek, Oman and Italian armed forces; by the Dutch, Swedish and Italian police; by the army, coast guards and the Italian navy.
It’s impossible to remain passive in the face of those for whom war is a business.
It is right to attack them before their products can contribute to causing death and devastation.
To stand by without acting would have made us accomplices.

My heart abhors and defies
The powerful of the earth,
My arm makes war on the cowardly oppressor
(Rebel Love – Pietro Gori)
We are living in a state of permanent global war, the perpetual war between oppressors, we know it and we know the main and secondary characters of dominion. Above all the oppressed know it, those who suffer arbitrary power over their lives.
Right now we are witnessing the passage of tanks and military in the streets of the rich and opulent West, the increase in controls and garrisons in defence of the order of commerce and consumption, the militarization of the territory.
Changes that strike even the most dormant minds, but which the strategy of global control will try to make us digest.
Among the exploited, gentlemen, there are two classes of individuals. Those of one class, not realizing what they are and what they might be, take life as it comes, believe that they are born to be slaves, and content themselves with the little that is given them in exchange for their labour. But there are others, on the contrary, who think, who study, and who, looking about them, discover social iniquities. (Auguste Vaillant)
We are not so short-sighted as to believe that this global war has such clear and sharp sides. Just as we recognize the enemies of freedom, we cannot bear the resignation and tolerance of those who are willing to give a piece of their lives every day. That is why we don’t delude ourselves that we are working for any revolution, we see clearly that the only anarchy realisable is what we experience when we finally free ourselves of every burden and decide to attack power. An experience that we feel we share with comrades around the world participating in the project of spreading the F.A.I / F.R.I. anarchist seed.
Tonight we planted this seed in the form of an explosive device placed in one of the key locations of State repression dispersed throughout the territory: the court of Civitavecchia. We decided to take our freedom ourselves. We have sharpened tools, analysed tactics, because we thirst for anarchy, and we are impatient.
Courts and prisons are simply outposts of dominion; places that are not just symbolic, but physical, where the State and the authorities stamp those who do not conform to the dictates of global control with the brand of condemnation, guilt, imprisonment and exclusion.
While holy doors are opening wide to spread miserable feelings such as mercy and compassion, we are breaking down ideological and real walls to allow the real hatred that motivates us to be reconciled with the love of a free life. Today we acted convinced that we don’t want to carry the experiences of the comrades we have lost, like those who are locked up or on the run, in some antrum of our heart, but to free them, leaving them to arm our hands, warm our flesh.
That is why our greeting goes to the comrades and prisoners who with their non-submission contribute to the spreading of joyful conscious subversion.
FREEDOM TO THE ANARCHIST PRISONERS ALL OVER THE WORLD!
FIRE TO THE PRISONS !! BLACK POWDER TO THE COURTS !!!
LONG LIVE THE F.A.I / F.R.I.

Anonymous submission. Note: we have made one edit to the content, the author can contact us if they want to discuss this.
Words without actions are nothing but corpses rotting in the mouths of those “charming and sophisticated” ones, ever ready to smear and drown out the insurrectional project of anarchists of praxis with speech.
Actions without words will never be enough to address and confront our daily struggles for individual liberation and autonomy, for it is with both the pen and the sword, theory and practise, that one is properly armed to give context and coordination to our struggles, to share solidarity and proposals in the most unmediated form, the direct attack against civilisation.
When attacks against the world of power are not claimed or publicised, the potential for spreading radical discussion, tactics and solidarity between whoever is interested is negated. Thus the aims to build a reciprocal, polymorphous and dynamic anarchist offensive is hindered, and the knowledge of so many attacks are lost to the void of clandestinity. (more…)

Disruption of VINCI and French Consulate
To the defenders of the ZAD,
Solidarity from anarchists in so-called ‘Melbourne, Australia’- the never-ceded indigenous land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, stolen and occupied by the genocidal settler-colonial state.
In response to recent threats of violent eviction by the French State, actions were taken at several locations in Melbourne, the city built on the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, in colonised Australia. The actions targetted the French consulate and offices of companies of the VINCI corporate-family linked to the proposed destruction of land at the Zone-A-Defendre.
The French consulate was attacked with paint and its locks were stuffed and glued.
The Offices of Menard-Bachy and Fressynet (both companies owned by VINCI), had their windows broken and slogans in support of the ZAD painted on the facade.
The Melbourne office of Electrix (a company owned by VINCI) was redecorated with a number of slogans celebrating resistance to VINCI’s plans.

Brescia: Claim of the attack on the police training centre and communiqué of Cellula Anarchica Acca (Italy)
Thursday, January 14th, 2016
During the night between 17th and 18th December we placed a device (8kg of gunpowder) at the police ‘training centre’ in Brescia. A symbolic action intended to cause material damage. We chose that time so as not to harm people indiscriminately.
With this action we began our projectuality of Anarchist attack as Cellula Anarchica Acca (C.A.A) in affinity with the black international, and add ourselves to the call for action for a BLACK DECEMBER.
We are joining this trajectory because:
We like the idea of an international coordination of anarchists for direct action.
Our idea of ‘complicity’ goes beyond groups and factions.
We are using the means we consider appropriate, seeking growth in the minimal details of the action. In that sense this action is nothing in terms of material damage, but it is important in arming our self-organization, especially at a time when we sense great resignation among anarchists in Italy.
We attacked one of the armed wings of the state. Cops from all over Italy and other states are trained at this ‘school’. This is also a little signal against war.
We are in solidarity with all those who struggle against all states and capital.
Our thoughts go to the many comrades who are repressed, locked up, tortured or killed at the present time and in the past. In solidarity with all prisoners in struggle.
This is a signal of complicity to those who are locked up: To Alfredo for shooting Adinolfi; to Chiara (NO TAV anarchist) for the attack on the construction site; to Nicola Gai, who with Alfredo kneecapped the Ansaldo managing director, which is the least he deserved; to Nico (NO TAV anarchist).
To Monica and Francisco, who are resisting in the Spanish prisons with simplicity and dignity.
To Tamara Sol, who showed us how to avenge our comrades.
To Nikos for his simple and humble contribution to a call for struggle.
To the comrades of the CCF.
To the comrades who struggle in prison and outside.
Reply to the text entitled ‘Under pressure’.
The main push to action is not pressure that makes us explode, but unlimited passion that liberates.
That is what pushed us to arm ourselves that night in Brescia: The passion of trying to free ourselves from exploitation, that of a life that deserves to be lived, the passion for freedom.
Passions are desires transformed into action, the most wonderful gestures of life in the face of the pervasive banality of the spectacle. It is this passion without limits that exploded that night in Brescia.
The questions we put to who wrote that text are:
Do actions not speak for themselves?
Why talk about actions now?
We didn’t like reading ‘this is the pressure that exploded that night in Brescia’, concerning that action, even it was written in ‘good faith’. We didn’t live it like that. Actions per se don’t always speak for themselves, and this is proof of it.

“Contra la tiranía de la realidad que se ha impuesto a la gente, elijo
siempre el realismo mágico de la anarquía y la revolución que nunca se
termina.” Christos Tsakalos.
Luchar por la libertad incluye combatir la impunidad de quienes reprimen
y vigilan nuestras vidas.
Abrimos fuegos el 2016 durante la noche del día domingo 03 de enero
atacando con un artefacto incendiario de activación retardada las
oficinas centrales de ISP Services, empresa de seguridad privada creada
por un ex agente de inteligencia de la dictadura chilena quien, como
muchos otros ex agentes de la represión dicatorial, desarrollaron sus
propios negocios de seguridad en el ámbito privado una vez llegada la
democracia. Nuestro fuego logró dañar con éxito parte de la fachada del
edificio ubicado en calle Lord Cochrane, en el centro de Santiago.
Estamos concientes de que las empresas de guardias, cámaras y
televigiancia son un negocio rentable sustentado en la ideología de la
seguridad, promovida por el Estado/Capital y avalada por la mayoría
social que, sin cuestionarse los discursos del poder, reproduce y
defiende la idea de la Seguridad Total, contenta de que en cada esquina
y barrio aparezcan más cámaras, guardias y policías.
Encendiedo nuestro fuego insurgente en las narices de quienes vigilan,
demostramos una vez más la vulnerabilidad de la red de la dominación,
potenciando nuestras decisiones, relaciones y prácticas cotidianas en el
ataque directo contra los edificios, representantes, administradores/as
y defensores/as del control social.
Lo hemos dicho y lo reafirmamos una vez más: el poder nunca es
invulnerable, el ataque anarquista siempre es posible.
Desde la informalidad antiautoritaria nos organizamos sin especialistas,
sin líderes ni jerarquías, para llevar a cabo la praxis de la
conspiración anarquista contra el poder, dando continuidad a través del
fuego al proyecto de la Federación Anarnquista Informal/ Frente
Revolucionario Internacional, porque la FAI/FRI cobra vida allí donde
cualquier individux, célula o grupo forjan con su propia AUTONOMÍA el
ATAQUE DIRECTO, sin dar pie a dudas sobre sus intenciones, con un actuar
certero y no indiscriminado, con la SOLIDARIDAD y el INTERNACIONALISMO
anárquico como elementos esenciales de una sedición liberadora sin
centros ni periferia que rompe la normalidad opresora y construye en el
presente la perspectiva de la Libertad Total.
Que acciones como esta motiven a la planificación de más y mejores
igniciones e incendios contra la miseria del orden establecido, siempre
recordando combinar los aprendizajes sobre cómo fabricar artefactos
incendiarios/explosivos con los conocimientos necesarios sobre cómo
dezplazarnos de forma segura a través de la ciudad al momento de
emprender la acción conspiradora y clandestina.
¡Combinemos las diversas formas de lucha para derrumbar este y cualquier
sistema de vida basado en el poder y la explotación!
Saludamos a quienes respondieron con propaganda y acción la iniciativa
para un Dicimebre Negro propuesta desde las cárceles griegas por los
compañeros Panagiotis Argirou y Nikos Romanos. Que el ímpetu por la
acción y el debate no se detenga, que continúe, se proyecte y concrete
en estrategias de lucha y más actos de insurrección que obstaculicen y
pongan en peligro los planes del poder.
Saludamos a cada presx en lucha que se mantiene dignx y consecuente en
las cárceles del mundo civilizado.
Saludamos la vida en lucha del guerrero mapuche Matías Catrileo,
asesinado hace 8 años (3 de enero de 2008) por las balas de la
democracia percutidas en esa ocasión por el policia Walter Ramírez
Espinoza en medio de una acción de recuperación de tierras ancestrales.
Saludamos a cada humanx y animal que lucha por su libertad pasando a la
acción contra el mundo de la autoridad.
Y a nuestros compañerxs de la FAI/FRI, nos encontraremos nuevamente en
el vuelo del Fénix.
¡Qué viva la Coordinación Informal de la Acción Anarquista Multiforme en
todo el mundo!

In the final hours of December 2015 we attacked the offices of the
defense contractor BAE Systems on River Boulevard in Richmond with paint
and sledge hammers.
BAE Systems make billions from war and their technology is responsible
for countless civilian deaths worldwide.
This action was carried out as part of Black December, a month of
anarchist direct action that was initiated by the anarchist prisoners
Nikos Romanos and Panagiotis Argirou in Greece.
We also carried out this action in solidarity with anarchist prisoners
held hostage by states worldwide and in solidarity with Indigenous
prisoners held hostage by the colonist ‘authorities’ here in so-called
‘Australia’ – all of whom are political prisoners.
Black December is everywhere!

In the days running up to Christmas an ING bank in Den Haag (Netherlands) was targeted by anarchists. ATM machines were sabotaged and a slogan referring to Black December was left on the facade. The banks are a cornerstone of this suffocating capitalist and repressive society. This is why we choose to attack these symbols of domination. While people are caught up in the consumerist madness of christmas we wanted to cause a disturbance of this consumerist peace. We don’t want to passively wait while this world is suffering. Crush the capitalist system. We want the anarchist offensive.
The action is in response to the call-out for a ‘Black December’ by anarchists Nikos Romanos and Panayiotis Argyros who are currently held captive by the Greek state. …
In loving solidarity to all the imprisoned anarchists around the world.
For a Black December! For the anarchist offensive!

Bloqueo de acceso a departamento de educación
Como anárquicos/as enemigos/as del Estado/Poder tenemos siempre en la
mira cualquier institución que cumpla funciones para él, es por eso que
la noche del día 23 nos acercamos al “Departamento Provincial de
Educación” ubicado en calle Nicanor de la Sotta 1623 (Santiago Centro) y
bloqueamos sus puertas con un u-look (que robamos de algún lado) para
boicotear su normal funcionamiento // Aclarar que de la educación no
esperamos ni queremos nada, ni nos interesan sus reformas, solo queremos
sacar de nuestras vidas cualquier lógica de autoridad y claramente aquí
vemos una más de aquella // Esta vez por algunas horas no podrán acceder
a esta oficina, llegará el día que no va quedar ni una en pie // ¡A
surcar los caminos hacia la liberación total! // ¡Diciembre Negro en

In recent years, in the name of an ever-increasing security and the quashing of terrorism and criminality, repression has intensified by various means: ever-larger policing, security guards, wiretapping, monitoring of all electronic media, surveillance cameras which are installed in every neighbourhood by now, and security systems that protect everyone’s property.
All this always occurs with the consent of those who eagerly expose every aspect of their daily routine, for the sake of their property’s safeguarding and under the illusion that they have control over their lives.
It is understandable that domination continually evolves technology to its benefit and, through diffused fear, largely acquires control over every location of metropolises.
That is where the wager is placed for a minority of people who don’t give a damn about the modern lifestyle, but instead experiment, conspire and continue the hostilities against domination, its civilisation and the culture of the living dead, who may voluntarily become snitches.
In the early hours of Friday 11th December, in the context of Black December, we placed an incendiary device at a security systems store on Formionos Street in the neighbourhood of Vyronas.
We dedicate this act to all anarchists behind prison walls.
LONG LIVE ANARCHY
PS. We don’t know why this action was concealed by the mass media, but we don’t give a damn about the reason why.

No peace for the defenders of commodity-society!
In the early hours of Wednesday Dec 2, we punctured the tires of a patrol car belonging to the private security company Garda on the corner of St-Jacques and Irene in the Montreal neighborhood of St-Henri. Garda provides prison, security and deportation services, profiting intensely from many aspects of this burning dumpster of an existence under capitalism. So, you know, fuck ’em. We claim this action within the context of the international call for a black December by imprisoned Greek anarchists. Through this communique, we wish to express our sincerest criminal complicity with all fugitive and incarcerated anarchist comrades around the world.
Black December is everywhere.
