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

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

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.

Llamado a la insurrección antiautoritaria.
Por un diciembre negro con nuestros caidos en la memoria.
Saludos. Mediante este comunicado nos presentamos como grupo en la forma que creemos mas indicada (nuestras acciones son lo que importa, no nuestros rostros), también invitamos a combatir el letargo practicando la insurrección antiautoritaria y a nutrirnos de ella.
Hace unas semanas con unos objetos envueltos en llamas bloqueamos una autopista en Lima y dejamos algunos mensajes. El motivo fue atacar el funcionamiento del orden impuesto por el Poder. No pedimos reformas, no pedimos jefes mas “buenitos”, no pedimos gobernantes que roben o que hagan obras, no pedimos trabajo o aumento si no su abolición.
Con esta acción apoyamos la ofensiva anarquista alrededor del mundo, en especial el DICIEMBRE NEGRO (venganza por los asesinatos de los companieros Alexandros Grigoropulos y Sebastian Oversluij).
Asimismo bienvenidx sea quien asista al llamado y rompa el papel de espectador. Te afecta a ti, a mí y a los que se oponen a este mundo de dominación consciente o inconscientemente.
Libertad a lxs anarquistas presxs.
Viva la propaganda pro el hecho.
Libertad a todos los animales.
Saludos a los miembros de las Celulas del fuego, Monica Caballero y Fransisco Solar.
Apoyo total a quienes no esperan la rebelion de las masas para salir a atacar.

In the fiery craters of our inner volcanoes, made with the lava of emotion and the fire of passion, we’ve fed our lust for life… And to Society that wanted to impose its laws and its morals on us, we will firmly respond with our “no,” while all others repeat their cowardly “yes.”(Enzo Martucci)
In the early hours of Friday December 4th [in Lycabettus area in Athens], we approached the house of the high priest of corruption, and former Minister of PASOK party, Kostas Laliotis and placed incendiary devices at his home entrance and his car.
As has rightly been said, the responsibilities of those who have served in administration centres of the capitalist machine can neither be forgotten nor retire.
Kostas Laliotis has been one of the most corrupt politicians following the metapolitefsi [transitional period after the fall of the Greek military junta]; his name and trajectory are linked to greed, deception, scheming, interwoven interests and arrogance, all of which are basic and integral characteristics of puppets staffing the political personnel of capitalist domination.
Maggots like Kostas Laliotis and his likes should be beaten or shot; they should see their houses burn, and live their miserable and crappy life in fear.
The fires of anarchist insurgency that lit at the house of a powerful former state official of the establishment was a contribution to the call for a Black December, which is spreading inside and outside the prisons all over the world, creating a multifaceted insurrectionary anarchist front that, having informal coordination, the acceptance of multiformity and the lasting anarchist insurgency as tools, crystallises the prospect of a generalised anarchist offensive against the world of Power.
Our captive comrades Nikos Romanos and Panagiotis Argirou have put an idea on the table of anarchist dialectics. They have proposed an idea relating to a theme any of us could set at the edge of a month of coordinated actions – actions originating from the entire spectrum of anarchist practices, from public gestures to guerrilla actions.
It is a proposal that opted to set the seven years since the assassination of comrade Alexandros Grigoropoulos as a theme, so as to test an experimentation of an informal coordination of multiform anarchist action in practice.
Those who have the appropriate analytical tools understand that it is a proposal concerning any anarchist individuality or collectivity that’s not clinging to theoretical patterns or immersed in apathy and reformism.
This is also why the kneelers of petty politics and professional search of disagreements do not lose the opportunity to shoot the arrows of their slanderous criticism once again.
But, as much as the “official” anarchist circles of cafes and gossip want to engage in mudslinging and slander, they cannot hide their discontent with the fact that the apathy which permanently pervades them is revealed in the clearest way.
Now, leaving aside those skilled in political speculation, let us talk about the essence of this proposal.
We believe anarchy must pose a real threat to the State, and to do this, anarchy needs to stay away from vanguards, leaderships, press offices, away from the logics of political cleansing and expulsions.
Informal organising doesn’t need to arise from agreements in charters and proclaimed positions one has to embrace. In our anarchy, every individual and every group can contribute to a theme, a campaign, a strategy by synchronising and coordinating their action, irrespective of whether they share common political backgrounds.
To evolve spontaneity, which often prevails in the anarchist milieu, does not mean anarchy has to turn into a party; all that is needed for the feasibility of a formulation of strategies and actions chosen to be put in motion is a will to act and communicate with other comrades.
For we love the kind of anarchy that travels through the streets of fire, occupies space and time in the metropolises, and creates strongholds for the diffusion of anarchist theory and practice. The kind of anarchy that blows up the pillars of normality, robs our lost time, and throws the morals of this world into fire.
This kind of anarchy does not fit in the hypocritical respectabilities of this society, nor does it make concessions on its discourse or practices to be pleasing to the social majority.
Surely there’s so much to say, but what comes first is intensifying our attacks, thickening the chaotic paths of liberatory struggle.
We will be back soon
Guerrilla signals to the FAI cells who have actively supported Black December in Greece, Chile, Spain, and those currently preparing their attacks; to the comrades of the Anarchist Insurgent Movement (M.I.A.) from Brazil; to all arsonists and rioters who set fire to the symbols of domination.
Strength and solidarity to all anarchist comrades inside and outside the prisons who support Black December with texts, translations, posters, flyers, graffiti and banners that complete the mosaic of multiform anarchist action.
A hug full of affection to our brothers and sisters who are locked up in prisons in Spain, Chile, Switzerland, Italy, Mexico, Germany, the US, and elsewhere; to Mónica Caballero, Francisco Solar, Marco Camenisch, Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai, Juan Aliste, Freddy Fuentevilla and Marcelo Villarroel, Juan Flores, Guillermo Durán, Nataly Casanova, Enrique Guzmán, Thomas Meyer-Falk, Ignacio Muñoz, Tamara Sol, Michael Kimble, and all other captive comrades whom we have unwittingly forgotten to mention.

Within the context of the call for a Black December action campaign, we organised and carried out a deed of direct action.
We reached the outside of a cop’s house in the district of Zografou, who’s a serving special guard at the Golden Dawn offices, and we set fire to his personal vehicle.
Such actions can easily be diffused and reproduced by comrades, and also contribute to creating a climate of fear and insecurity among the cowardly servants of legal order.
We don’t wait until repression comes knocking on our door; we locate the houses of uniformed bastards within the metropolis, and pay them a visit so as to attack them by all means.
Strength and solidarity to all our comrades around the world who intensify the Black December campaign with their actions, making informal coordination of multiform anarchist action a reality.
We organise anarchist cells of direct action!
For the anarchist offensive against the world of Power!
For a Black December!
Solidarity with anarchist prisoners and all comrades wanted by authorities!
With our dead brothers and sisters present in every moment of attack against domination!

Barcelona, Spanish State: The attack continues in the face of the blows inflicted by power
After the recent police operations against anarchist milieus, so much has been written and said; statements and opinions mainly denounce or ‘condemn’ the repression inflicted by the authorities. After the latest repressive operation and the reactions that followed, we reckon we should give our point of view.
Starting from the fact that the ongoing repression is the State’s logical response to those who consider themselves (or the State considers) its enemies, we don’t understand certain communiqués full of victimization, where in practice (and with the most appropriate words, of course) they beg the State to stop unleashing its cops ‘indiscriminately’ against anarchists. And they say that repression is unjustifiable, and of course they use and abuse the word ‘frame-up’, and say we do nothing wrong, and that they attack us because we ‘think in a different way’… They try to give a picture of ‘normality’ and endeavour with all means to make this picture clean and socially acceptable. They do their best to take distance from violent words and actions; and as they become entrapped in the game of power and use the latter’s language, they make distinctions between ‘good’ anarchists and ‘bad’ ones, thus promoting criminalization from within their ranks.
At this point some of these ‘anarchists’ don’t feel ashamed at giving pitiful interviews to the media, and what is worse they pose as spokespersons of the ‘anarchist movement’ (and then of all social movements); these would-be politicians and leaders of the masses try their best to alienate anarchism from its subversive and conflictual character, and present anarchism as a simple movement of activists, deprived of any words or actions that clash against power and the established order.
Then there are those who just talk of how terrible repression is, how all comrades are under strict surveillance, and one can’t do anything; this kind of attitudes only spread collective panic and paranoia, and these are the attitudes of those who hide their inactivity behind the pretext of ever present repression, surveillance, ‘I’m being strictly watched’, etc. Anyone who is reluctant to take responsibility can be so according to their personal decisions; but to hide oneself behind uncontrolled and often groundless fear and to spread discouraging feelings wherever one goes, is dangerous and counter-productive. This doesn’t mean that there are the ‘brave’ ones and the ‘cowardly’ ones; it’s perfectly normal to fear police checks, prison, beatings, torture and murders committed by cops and jailers…
But spreading fear leads to panic and paranoia, and in turn this leads to discouraging speeches calling for inaction, maintaining that ‘to behave’ is better for both oneself and other comrades so as not to be the objects of police investigations.
To conclude this topic it must be said that even if the State has shown us nothing more than the tip of the iceberg, this is nothing compared to what could happen; in fact it’s sufficient to look at repression currently occurring in other areas of the world (and not even that far) or in the Spanish State itself a few decades ago. It should be clear that as we stand as anarchists we live with the risk and possibility to be hit by the machine of repression, also at the margins of our practices, because, as we’ve seen, there are times when the same repressive machine tries to stir fear among the enemies and strikes everyone rather than inflict targeted blows; as a consequence anyone of us can be a target.
However, in spite of the deployment of police operations, arrests and slanders that have been carried out (and in spite of what has to come yet), power knows that there will always be individuals who cannot be controlled or frightened, no matter what, our desire to destroy everything that oppresses us cannot be put off. We are glad to see how in spite of everything, they didn’t manage to stop the attack on the existent; every day there are some who still don’t give in to fear and social submission and go on constant attack. Multiform anarchist action keeps on spreading through many neighbourhoods, cities and countries in the form of publications and militant texts, posters, graffiti, banners, sabotage, fires and explosions, roads blocked with barricades, clashes, attacks on the buildings of power and disorders during demonstrations…
Although the Spanish state prefers not to make claims known so that actions are silenced, we know for certain what’s happening, with more or less frequency. The violence of the minority will continue, and we talk about violence openly and without troubles because we are convinced that power won’t fall by itself, nor will any Messiah come from heaven with a solution.
We don’t use words such as ‘self-defence’ or ‘counter-violence’; nor do we talk of anarchist violence only in a context of mass uprising when it’s more acceptable. We’ve found out that in spite of everything, insurrectional practices and attacks are still possible; police can’t be everywhere, they don’t spy on us all or control us all, some common sense, good planning and good will are more than enough to prove that the picture of a controlled and pre-arranged world is just an illusion; it’s up to us to break this illusion of tranquility.
For in the face of the blows of power and the misery of some ‘anarchists’ who only care to give an image of good innocent boys to society in order to be safe, we arm our desires and passions, and go on the attack. To the masses and their inactivity we offer our aggressiveness, we expect nothing and throw ourselves into constant anarchist revolt.
We are the rebels who have decided to carry on and run the risk, and dare live anarchy here and now.
Words without action are dead words to us, so we take the occasion of this communiqué to claim the following actions carried out in several neighbourhoods in Barcelona: the fire on vehicles of security companies, private ones as well as State-owned ones; attacks on bank branches through damages to windows and ATMs caused by hammers, stones, paint and fire; fire and destruction of urban structures.
With this communiqué we want to give our warm greetings to our prisoners, especially Monica and Francisco, who have been in pre-trial detention for over two years always with their heads held high; to comrades Nicola and Alfredo, the comrades of the CCF and the comrades imprisoned in Chile; and we want to remember our fallen ones and greet those who day by day continue to bet on constant conflict and anarchist insurrection, and make anarchy be once again a threat.
For a Black December everywhere!
For the black international of the anarchists of action!
For the spreading of chaos and Anarchy!
Nothing ends, the war continues…

An interview with a domestic insurgent
Chapter 12 of the book
RADICAL PEACE: People Refusing War
By William T. Hathaway
I first met the man we’ll call Trucker in 1970 at a rally against the Vietnam War. Our demo was going to start on the Berkeley campus and continue with a march down Telegraph Avenue. This was shortly after the National Guard and police had murdered six demonstrators at Kent State and Jackson State, so the mood was extremely tense. The Berkeley city government had denied us a permit to march and called in police reinforcements from Oakland. The Oakland cops had a reputation for brutality (based on their treatment of the black population), and we were expecting an ugly and possibly violent confrontation. Out of fear, many people decided not to march, but others of us argued that marching was now more important than ever. We needed to defy the government’s attempts to scare us into silence.
After speeches and music in front of Sproul Hall, we marched off the campus and were met by a wall of police sealing off Telegraph Avenue. Some of our hard-cores in front tried to break through the barrier but were clubbed down. Cops began firing what looked liked shotguns, and people started screaming and running in panic, but it turned out to be tear gas. (more…)
