dominación, es que nos dirigimos en sigilo la tarde-noche de este sábado

Santiago y con sencillos materiales(1) saboteamos los candados para que
los dueños de este “supuesto trabajo” les quede en la cabeza que hay

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.

No hay tiempo para excusas ni pausas – Por un Diciembre Negro
Queremos la destrucción de la sociedad, ustedes lo quieren reformar,
reformulan viejos valores que han de cegar, manipulan los sentimientos y
forma de luchar, intentan homogenizar, no aceptáremos más, en guerra me
(Nada Está Saldado, canción del compa “Angry”)
Desde Chile saludamos la iniciativa convocada desde la prisión por lxs
compañerxs anarquistas Nikos Romanos y Panagiotis Argirou, alegremente y
en actitud de combate -fiel reflejo de este ataque- nos hacemos parte de
este Diciembre Negro, como también a la memoria insurrecta del compañero

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…)

UPDATE: ENGLISH VERSION
Junto con educar e informar,(…)salirte de las leyes del sistema

animal sino en todo el ecosistema que cada día está más mal. Si debemos
destrozar las propiedades de aquellos que sustentan la explotación
animal no dudaremos en usar todas nuestras armas, incluso quemar el
(“Liberación Animal”, canción del compañero Sebastián “Angry”
En la sociedad del capital y la autoridad, el especismo es uno de los
pilares en que se sostiene la dominación, materializándose en relaciones
de poder que transforman a los animales en objetos para el consumo
humano bajo la modalidad de alimentación, vestimenta, entretención,
experimentación o como mascotas bajo la propiedad de una/un humana/o.
Insertando el anti especismo como parte de la lucha contra toda forma de
autoridad, una vida cotidiana alejada de los productos de origen animal
tiene como complemento inevitable la acción directa contra los/as
explotadores/as y mercaderes de animales.
Así, rechazando toda lógica reformista o victimista sobre la liberación
animal, saboteamos la noche del 01 de Diciembre la tienda de animales
“Exotic”, sellando con acero líquido los candados que permiten el acceso
al lugar donde las/os animales son vendidos como mercancía. En el lugar,
ubicado en Avenida Departamental, dejamos una nota para no dejar dudas
sobre el contenido de nuestra acción. Al salir el sol, sus dueñas/os no
podrán abrir su negocio basado en las jaulas y el cautiverio de
individuos no humanos, cumpliendo nuestra acción su objetivo: entorpecer
el normal funcionamiento de la opresión sobre nuestras vidas y las de
No queremos leyes más compasivas con los animales ni jaulas más grandes.
Nuestra acción es expresión del deseo de la destrucción de toda forma de
encierro y dominación.
Respondemos de esta forma a la invitación realizada desde Grecia por los
compañeros Panagiotis Argyrou y Nikos Romanos, tomando parte en un
Diciembre Negro en cual nos interesa intensificar la acción transgresora
antiautoritaria y las redes de complicidad entre compañeros/as, buscando
proyectarlas más allá de un momento o mes específico.
Aportar a revitalizar en nuestro propio territorio la acción anti
especista es también nuestra forma de solidaridad con el prisionero
anarquista y vegano Osmar Evcan, en huelga de hambre desde el 10 de
noviembre en la prisiones del Estado de Turquía, quien pone en riesgo su
integridad poniendo su cuerpo como arma exigiendo la restitución de su
alimentación vegana al interior de la prisión.
Que la tensión anti especista se haga visible en el accionar anárquico
de ofensiva a través de células de compañeras/os que se organizan y
actúan sin jerarquías, afilando convicciones combinadas con la
creatividad, la cautela y diferentes medios y materiales para golpear
múltiples puntos de la red de la dominación.

Communiqués of three comrades on trial following an act of sabotage on a high voltage pylon that took place in 2005 (Italy)
Sunday, November 22nd, 2015
The appeal hearing due on 5th October 2015 was postponed to 19th October because an expert appointed by the prosecution and a DIGOS officer [political police] from Pisa in charge of the investigation were absent.
The comrades’ communiqués:
Silvia and Costa:
A high voltage pylon run by Terna [electricity company] on the La Spezia-Acciaiolo railway track was sabotaged in 2005 with two dynamite charges. The action seriously damaged the pylon but did not cause it to fall down.
In the days that followed an anonymous letter sent to press agencies and the Pisa editorial group of the radical eco paper Terra Selvaggia explained that the action had been carried out against renewed plans to reinstate nuclear power. These plans had never been really dismissed after the referendum following Chernobyl, but they continued to be pursued in numerous research centres, such as the Faculty of Nuclear Engineering of the University of Pisa, considered an institute of excellence on a national level. In the same area, at the S. Rossore natural park, another structure stands out: the CISAM, site of an experimental nuclear reactor and a military research centre. This plant recently caused controversy because of the dumping of radioactive water in the Navicelli canal linking the city of Pisa to the sea. Toxic water, which has been declared safe by the usual local servants of ARPAT [state agency dealing with environmental matters] and ASL [state health agency]. On the contrary this poisonous water reminds us that there’s no way out of nuclear power: what has been produced or left as waste is the legacy of a world where energy production and military control come before anything else, even if all they give is a landfill-like world.

São Paulo: Carlo Giuliani Cell of M.I.A. join the call for a Black December through fire / 'Célula Carlo Giuliani – Movimento Insurgente Anarquista' Reivindica Quatro Ataques A Bancos na Cidade de São Paulo (Brazil)
Tuesday, November 17th, 2015
—We claim responsibility for incendiary attacks against four banks in the city of São Paulo. The attacks occurred at the Santander bank branches in Largo da Batata, another in the Liberdade area, and the other two in the central region and in a peripheral region.—
The “Carlo Giuliani” cell of the Anarchist Insurgent Movement (M.I.A.) assumes responsibility for the four incendiary attacks that consumed bank branches in the early hours of November 15th 2015 in the central region of the city of São Paulo.
On November 15th the proclamation of the republic is “commemorated”, within large and ironic quotation marks. We have this fetish of commemorating historical dates and personages that remind our massacres and subservience. We do not commemorate the insurgencies of slaves or the Canudos Insurrection, nor do we celebrate the epic past of Marighella, Zumbi, João Cândido, Jesuíno Brilhante, Olga [Benário], or Espirtirina Martins. Going against logic, we buy the canned historical version, told by the winners who still continue to dominate us.
The fetid and corrupt monarchy that parasitised Brazil, deposed after the proclamation of the republic, does not differ in absolutely anything from the elite which nowadays parasitises the so admired democratic republic. Bankers, lobbyists, politicians, corporatists, CEOs, speculators and landlords, all worms that accumulate innumerable richness at the expense of others’ sweat.

Siamo anarchici e siam molti
E la vostra inane legge
Non ci doma né corregge

“Anyone with some common sense, who has even a distant notion of what the nature of the No Tav movement is and of the ethical framework within which this struggle expresses its 20-year-long resistance, can see that I was not there with the intent to pursue terror or worse”. Mattia
“On the other hand, those who struggle have learned, with intelligence, to channel even those strong and impetuous passions that are born of the many hits we took, like when a friend lost an eye from a tear gas grenade or when another came close to death”. Niccolò
“Military and paramilitary attacks, indiscriminate violence and weapons of war belong to states and those who emulate them”. Chiara
“We are accused of having acted to strike people or at least of having no regard for their presence, as if we had no regard for the lives of others…In relation to the accusation of terrorism I have no intention of defending myself. The solidarity we were shown from the moment of our arrest up until the present day has gone far to dismantle this daring incrimination”. Claudio
“Your words, as well as sounding proud, sound just, in the sense that they are both ethically upstanding and attuned”. Open letter to Chiara, Niccolò, Mattia and Claudio
“The prosecution wanted to create dissociations, namely, to push the movement to distance itself from its own power… We can say, quite plainly, that the movement held out by fully grasping what was at stake… The demands made by the prosecution are what in lawyers’ jargon is called ‘fence-sitting’. Go ahead and give them the minimum sentence, but convict them of terrorism”. Open letter to Chiara, Niccolò, Mattia and Claudio
We can quite plainly say that the ‘movement’ has secured yet another victory. Not only has it managed to market a watered-down, inoffensive and whiny version of sabotage, but simultaneously, it has used its superior “ethical code” to blacklist all violent direct action that goes beyond striking a compressor with a Molotov. The courts have also won, by managing to impose boundaries that good kids shouldn’t cross, if they want to avoid anything more than a sounding spanking.
For that matter, the victory for the courts has been sweeping, because through the terroristic prospect of years and years of prison, they made sure that comrades themselves – with their own statements – were the ones to draw up the boundaries that could not be crossed. (more…)

Last night a Metropolitan Police Safer Neighbourhoods Team base on Blackstock Road was targeted in response to a wave of police violence and control in Hackney and larger London. Pigs are frisking us on our estates; assisting in the eviction of our family and friends; containing and violently suppressing our protests and everyday resistance. Armed with public order sections and counter-terrorism legislation, they criminalise our communities and cultures.
At yesterday’s Million Mask March and the Free Education demonstration the day before, the Met police excelled in invasive repression and control. Riot cops attempted for hours to put a baton over the head of central London protest; but our resistance cannot be contained to designated protest zones. All around London, lines of social conflict are marked. Where the ground is ours, resistance is on our terms, at our times and outside their enforced zones.
Resistance to police control is as permanent as it is necessary. There is always a police car burning. In Lambeth, Southwark and Hackney, pigs feel blows from their own batons. A family is refusing to be evicted from their council flat; a firework is hitting a pig van on patrol; a mob of people are pulling someone from the grips of Met officers.
Everywhere we are creating our own lines of social war and resistance.
Violence and sabotage is ours and we will continue to use it.

Political parties’ kiosks torched and vandalized (Athens, 19/09/2015)
Inter Arma received and translated:
On Saturday 19/9 at dawn, we tried to disrupt even temporarily the conformism of the petty masses. As the crowd was sharpening its passivity, ready once again to show its complicity by supporting the authoritarian structure, we tried to actively declare our complicity with the anarchist prisoners, who carry out their own fight against the isolation and alienation their are subjected to in the condition of imprisonment.
Evi Statiri, partner of Gerasimos Tsakalos, is on a hunger strike since 14/9 demanding only the termination of her unjustified detention. Evi Satiri, victim of the authority’s generalized power expansion strategy is imprisoned in the cells of democracy since 2/3 when she arrested together with Angeliki Spyropoulou and Athena Tsakalou in Salamina and is accused of being member of a terrorist organization without any evidence whatsoever. It is certain that Evi is not held hostage by the state by accident. Authority, beyond the psychological test to which it wishes to put the comrades of CCF in order to avenge them for their consistent and uncompromising aggressive attitude, has a much more dangerous target in its plans. The democratic totalitarianism of order, legality, safety, quietness, commodities, and economic domination wants to eliminate everything that questions the choices which the masses are allowed to consume from its one-dimensional reality of the spectacle.
The total expansion of a reality with predefined movement limits doesn’t allow its questioning, much more the transfer from the abstract space of ideas to the physical armed confrontation with the materializations of institutional power. Those who negate the existent, should firstly be punished and eliminated and secondly, since no punishment can erase events, have their choices isolated, marginalized, ridiculed and communicated in the rational control tanks and their bearers. Anarchists urban guerrillas who attempt a radical deconstruction of modern life, should literally disappear from the social terrain in order for the smooth operation of the system and it is a natural consequence by which no one should be surprised that family members and friends are prosecuted, following their choice to have relationships with people whose history should be deleted from the social memory.
Under these conditions we wanted to disrupt the daily flow of news, information and events of an election campaign, we placed incendiary devices at two election kiosks, one of the Communist Party and one of SYRIZA in Ano Patissia, and vandalized one kiosk of ND (New Democracy) in Kifissia. Although there are many reasons to attack these political parties, the choice was essentially arbitrary, so we will not bother explaining any special reasons for these attacks since as anarcho-nihilists we are hostile towards every political structure. The time frame of the attack however was not arbitrary at all. Our choice to attack a day before the elections was aimed to disrupt the democratic spectacular relations where domination demonstrates its ideological omnipotence. Elections also are fully adapted to the existence of the modern slave who was asked to give away a life whose rights have already been taken, to the hands of a specialist. The votes deposited in the ballot box bear the imprints of an abandoned life and a rented consciousness whose every desire is the product of social imperatives, independent only to the extend that it confirms the one-dimensional civilization of the authoritarian world.
It is obvious that the choices and issues of anarchist prisoners have no place within the borders of domination and that is why we as anarchists take up the task of establishing the flow of our own world against those who in the face of the fear of a chaotic life chose to seek refuge in the smoothness of authoritarian realism. In contrast with the procedures for managing the masses, the issues concerning anarchist comrades are directly linked to us and we are prepared to assist them when necessary. Far from reproducing nihilistic intellectualism and the commodified notion of violence for violence, expressed by discontented crowds, let us go on the offensive always according to our desire for action. Let us put an end to the graphic reproduction of phrases spoken too many times and harmless slogans and let us begin to live the war for which so much ink has been spilled.
Immediate release of the hunger striker Evi Statiri, not because her imprisonment is “illegal” or “unjust” but because we demand it.
Immediate granting of educational prison leaves to Nikos Romanos
