Oaxaca: Explosive attacks against Santander Bank and PRODECON in memory of anarchist compañero Sebastián Oversluij (Mexico)

Friday, December 16th, 2016

On December 11, 2013 anarchist compañero Sebastián Oversluij was shot dead by a security guard while attempting to rob a bank branch in Chile.

Today we decided to attack with explosive devices a Santander Bank branch and a PRODECON* office (belonging to the Secretary of Finance) in Oaxaca.

Remembering three years since this event not to make him a martyr nor to victimize his death but in the name of all illegal and clandestine actions that arise, have arisen and will arise within this war.

We emphasize that we (BAIBF / Bruno Filippi Brigade of Informal Action) have nothing to do with the wave of pseudo-left-wing anarchists who are at the mercy of and defend the interests of social and trade union organizations since we opt for the antagonistic and informal individual affinities and the total destruction of this prison-society and all its structures.

Porto Alegre: Arson attack against a Santander bank in solidarity with Monica, Francisco & CCF (Brazil)

Sunday, March 13th, 2016

On the night of March 9, we placed an incendiary device at the Santander bank branch on Ramiro Barcelos street. Our incentive to conspire and then carry out the attack was solidarity and complicity with anarchists behind bars who endure days and days of incarceration but still hold their heads high, proud of their ideas and convictions.

In response to the call for solidarity with the compas Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar we organized ourselves so that our desire to express solidarity became a fire to reach the companeros who are facing a trial in which they face 44 years in prison, accused of terrorism and particularly an attack on the Basilica of the Pillar in Barcelona.

There are many reasons and motives to attack Santander Bank. For example, besides being representatives of the Spanish state (who have kidnapped our companeros), in this territory they were the administrators of Augustus Pinochet’s money following the military dictatorship in Chile. In the end, these facts are only details that enhance our anger… Any banking institution that tries to hide their genocidal intentions with ‘cultural projects’ or other pseudo-humanist terms are representatives of a system that only inspires our disgust.

Branches of Santander Bank have been attacked twice in recent days in Santiago, Chile and in Buenos Aires. The two attacks were carried out in solidarity with Monica and Francisco. This silent, instinctive coordination of solidarity not only causes a great inconvenience to normal life at different points in the world, but also strengthens our ties, making it clear there are no borders and that we do not need leaders or vertical structures to attack several bars in the same cage.

With this solidarity action for Monica and Francisco, we also send greetings to the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire compas and their families who are also facing another trial against them. Their strength inspires us every day to walk looking for the fire to illuminate the darkness.

Down with the prison walls.

Incendiary solidarity with Monica and Francisco

For the proliferation of the groups of attacks. The beauty of solidarity is the complicity.

Long live anarchy!

Wednesday, March 9th, 2016

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:

La Cisterna: Reivindicación de ataque incendiario/explosivo contra Banco Santander (Chile)

Saturday, February 27th, 2016

Reivindicación de ataque incendiario/explosivo contra Banco Santander. La Cisterna. Chile, 2016.

A lxs insurrectxs, a lxs revolucionarxs, a compañerxs afines y cómplices: asumimos la absoluta responsabilidad del ataque destructivo llevado a cabo durante la madrugada del día jueves 25 de febrero de 2016 con un artefacto incendiario/explosivo contra la sucursal del Banco Santander ubicada en Avenida José Miguel Carrera casi esquina Avenida Fernández Albano.

Con una mezcla incendiaria compuesta por napalm y bencina dentro de un bidón plástico, y adosados a él cinco cartuchos de gas butano-propano, todo detonado gracias a un doble sistema de relojería configurado para manejar el tiempo necesario que nos permitió retirarnos del lugar y entorno sin contratiempos ni sorpresas pese a ser una noche particularmente asediada por contingentes policiales bajo la burda estrategia del control preventivo masivo. Ante éste contexto, caracterizadxs y decididxs logramos nuevamente avanzar y ridiculizar sus medidas represivas concretando así la destrucción anteriormente planificada.

Saliendo al paso del aparecido subrogante de turno, jamás hemos pretendido iniciar o contribuir a un debate “democrático” ni dictatorial ni popular eso deben tenerlo más que claro, la historia así lo ha demostrado y nuestro presente aporta y nutre la continuidad de la guerra contra el Estado-Capital. Transitando en éste permanente conflicto hemos decidido responder al llamado solidario con Francisco Solar y Mónica Caballero, prisionerxs en España desde el año 2013 y prontos a iniciar el juicio en su contra que ansía la sepultura de lxs compañerxs con varias décadas de cárcel.

Sabotage in solidarity with those implicated in Operation Pandora (Catalonia)

Saturday, February 7th, 2015

In the morning of Friday 30th January, just after the secrecy of the investigation was lifted and the news disseminated of the impending conditional bailing of comrades, we decided to express our solidarity in the streets. We sabotaged the cashpoints and the windows of the following Santander Bank offices:

In Mataró, the branches in the streets of Camí del Mig, Plaza de Granollers, Plaza Santa Anna, Carrer Sant Cugat, Avenida de América, Via Europa. We also sabotaged the branches of the same bank in El Masnou, Vilassar de Mar and Premià de Mar.

We chose the bank Santander because it is the only entity responsible for managing the cash flow in prisons of the Spanish State, generating around 100 million euros per year, according to official figures. Speculating and turning a profit on the basis of this important amount of money, the fruit of suffering and incarceration of thousands of people.

We celebrate the fact that our comrades are again on the outside, but even so, we are well aware that we still have a long and difficult path ahead, and that as long as resistance exists against the domination of the capitalist system, the state and it’s repressive mechanisms will try to put an end to it.

That the flame of solidarity isn’t put out.

Freedom for Mónica and Francisco!

Summary of the first two days of trial against Luciano “Tortuga” (Chile)

Sunday, July 29th, 2012

Update: Summary of days 3 to 5 + New Photo

From negratortuguita, transl waronsociety:

The trial started on Friday, July 20th, in the justice center. Below we reproduce the summary made by Viva la Anarquia.

PUNISHMENT

We learned that our compa has been punished by the jailers and in isolation since Thursday the 19th. We learned this thanks to the fact that his lawyer was going to visit him and found him handcuffed to his bed, and demanded (during the hearing) explanations for the punishment. The judges in turn requested the prison guards to give the explanations in a maximum period of 24 hours. (more…)

International Conspiracy for Revenge – Informal Anarchist Federation claim incendiary attack on Santander Bank in Buenos Aires (Argentina)

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

From vivalaanarquia, transl waronsociety:

21 May 2012

Today, Monday May 21st at around 1 AM, we attacked the Santander Bank located on Parana street between Tucuman and Viamonte. For this we made use of 2 liters of flammable liquid plus 4 butane gas canisters and an ignition mechanism. The fire completely destroyed the front part of the bank, leaving the 4 ATMs that were there unusable, as well as busting out several windows. We mark this action as an action remembrance of the warrior Mauricio Morales, fallen 3 years ago from the explosion of his own bomb destined to the prison guard school in Chile. And with care for Luciano “Tortuga” Pitronello, wounded after the attack on a Santander Bank last year, now imprisoned. This is how we understand solidarity, stopping here where a comrade “fell,” in order to radicalize and deepen our practices.

The society in which we live intends to condemn us to misery, to alienation, to stupid consumption and docility. We as combatant individuals deny all of this, we reject and attack its symbols and its capitalist, policial, patriarchal, religious and ideological values. We go on the offensive with conviction as our primary weapon. We do not illusion ourselves with “hope” of some change in the people, the people that does not react even when a loved one of theirs is locked up in the prisons or asylums of the Argentine State, the people that do not react even when they are evicted from their homes and have to sleep in the street with their children, the people who have lost all dignity before the dream of a bourgeois life that the mass media of communication offer them. We do not waste our time on raising the consciousness of the masses nor discourses like that, we choose for ourselves the rebel, illegal, delinquent life. And we have imprisoned comrades in this war who we want to name. Eat and Billy, brothers of the FAI, recently sentenced to 1 year 8 months for the attack on a bank; all the comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, who maintain with pride their anarchist values in spite of the constant attempts to diminish their morale such as the recent transfer and punishment of the comrade Olga; Freddy, Marcelo and Juan, dignified prisoners in the Chilean prisons, after being expelled by the wretched Argentine government; the recently arrested Carla and Ivan; and so many others who we carry within ourselves, day after day, night after night, who give us strength and another reason to keep fighting.

An autonomous subversion, in the form of anarchist guerrilla, is expanding through the most remote places of the earth, from Bolivia to England, from Italy to Chile, from Indonesia to Mexico… with weapons, with explosives, with fire, but above all with values and dignified conscience. And that is what they will never be able to stop.

Fire Cell / FAI burn vehicles in anarchist solidarity attack (UK)

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

325 receives and transmits:

19 February 2012

“The spirit of insurrectionalism is still in the air like a light of hope – in this
dim atmosphere of cages of repression.”
Eat & Billy (Indonesian FAI)

We hate rich cunts in BMWs, in fact they piss us off so much that to show our hate of them and all their like we set a BMW on fire and another SUV nearby, on Kimberly avenue Cambridge in the early hours of Feb 19. Right in front of the houses of these fuckheads who obviously have signed up willingly on the side of this massive prison industrial civilization, for the destruction of our mother earth and against everything we love. Just another small gesture of our war on their world. We were filled with love burning as hot as our hate – our thoughts with REYHARD RUMBAYAN (‘Eat’) and BILLY AUGUSTAN on trial a few days ago in Indonesia for burning a BRI Bank in Yogyakarta back in Oct. 7 2011, for which they take proud responsibility as members of the Long-Live Luciano Tortuga Cell – Indonesian FAI (Informal Anarchist Federation). Their torture and the long imprisonment the bastards of the Indonesian State have planned for them under ‘anti-terrorist’ laws are just another reason we’ll remain stubborn in our attack all over the world – the insurrectionary anarchists of the black international – with arson, bombs, sabotage and bullets.

We also send our love to subversive comrades JUAN ALISTE, FREDDY FUENTEVILLA, and MARCELLO VILLARROEL banged up in Chile accused of three bank robberies and killing a cop in October 2007, mindful of the international call for days of solidarity between Feb19 and Feb29 and these comrades hunger strike for which they’ve been isolated in maximum security isolation cells – declaring “our protest contemplates no demand of the intraprison appeal type. More accurately, it is a gesture — an act of attacking anticapitalist Resistance uniting us with each and every Subversive Autonomous Anarchist Revolutionary prisoner who, from different places and different death/isolation camps, keeps alive the revolt in pursuit of Social Revolution and the disappearance of class society”. Strength to the dignified revolutionaries Freddy, Juan and Marcello who daily give us so much strength! And flaming solidarity to all our comrades all over the world taking the difficult path of revolt against all odds. Turns out we don’t have to look too far to see others who warm our hearts with their irreducible rebelliousness against this grey prison world of cars and roads and shopping centres and metal fences and identical housing estates and schools/workplaces/jails. the local press speculated that the Nov 22 2011 arson of cars at a Histon Vauxhall garage was by the Fire Cell / FAI. That’s not the case and we send our warm greeting to these anonymous arsonists – keep burning until all the cities turn to ashes to fertilise an unimaginable feral future!!! Likewise we welcome the arson attack that partially damaged the Santander bank in the center of Cambridge on Feb 1 2012 and regret the arrest of a young man afterwards, ALL OUR SOLIDARITY TO THE ANTI-SYSTEM FIRESTARTERS And of course to those arrested after the riot in Cambridge in the uprizing of August in which some cops got mashed down and everyone else who felt the flame of life burn brighter – we’ll have our time again, as long as we’re rioters, the riots not dead – NOTHING IS OVER EVERYTHING CONTINUES.

Of course, there’s no need to wait to start destroying, just like we don’t stop looting off the capitalist system just because there’s not a riot – you just need to be a bit more sneaky! Everyone can form a cell of the leaderless resistance and carry out actions (taking the common sense security measures, being lo-tech), and can choose to communicate thru action claims like this one, sharing methods and ideas and anonymously coordinating strikes on the enemy, across all borders, just like our comrades in Bristol, Nottingham, London and all over the world!!

Active Solidarity with Luciano Pitronello, Tortuga – September 22 (Chile)

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

For the spreading of action

Anarchist and anti-authoritarian dissidence has grown explosively in Chile since 2004. In the streets, neighbourhoods and universities a presence has increased without a doubt, showing the rejection of authority, State and Capitalism.

In this context many diverse groups have decided to pass to the offensive illegal struggle against the State.

In this optic they have attacked various bank agencies, police stations, churches and amusement centres of the bourgeoisie and the rich with explosive devices.

Each one of the attacks is claimed in political communiques with names of dead fighters we want to remember. They are carefully planned not to hurt or damage anybody, only the structures chosen to be attacked.

This fact is not insignificant, because there is evidence of a precise recognition of what is the enemy, and where it hides itself, not confusing it with anyone. This demonstrates in the long term, a projectuality of struggle and not the simple desire to appear, as happens with militarists drifts, the adrenalin fetish, or ego-driven action.

So, the attacks follow one another, increasing in boldness and complexity over the years. Power is tricked from the very interior of the panoptical city, which is why it is made to feel the hysterical rage sweating out from the ministerial palaces. So the hunt begins, the judicial but also media persecution unfolds. Known anarchists, ex- political prisoners and those who have transformed practical vindicated solidarity into a continuous way of life, are threatened and persecuted by pro-government and official means.

After years of investigations, interception of telephone calls, pursuits, shootings and search points, the diverse police organisms are incapable of finding the people responsible for the attacks.

But one freezing dawn of the month of May was to make the police lighten their step. The 22 of May of 2009, anarchist comrade Mauricio Morales (27 years) is killed. The explosive charge that he was carrying blows up in his hands, killing him in the act.

He was on his way to the gendarmerie school, an institution that has links with the jails of the whole country, directly responsible for the confinement of hundreds of thousands of prisoners.

Following the death of the comrade Mauri the police immediately dart towards his surroundings and circle of comrades. So, the anti-cultural spaces that Mauri visited are pointed at and attacked, the same day and over the following months.
Houses searched, comrades kidnapped, okupas (squats) are evicted and the circles are narrowed. Beyond the accuracy or falsity of the conjectures of power, what is certain is that those with relations of affection and comradeship will be struck and harassed.

Anybody that has shared something with the comrade Mauri and who does not accept remaining in silence as a form of memory, will be immediately swell the list of suspects.

In spite of the adverse context, there are still clenched fists, comrades that do not shut up, that are still not resigned… there are those who smile with each overflowing act of rebelliousness. The pain is terrible, but many attacks change the pain into rage. The permanent scar will remind them every day of the loss of the comrade.

The attacks follow and the look of shame on the powerful takes a walk exasperated, because direct action even arrives two blocks away from the president’s home. The anarchists are laughing and they are laughing loudly.

Power will take revenge for its incapacity to discover those responsible for the actions, attacking 14 comrades, prisoners, under the gross and fictitious accusation of forming an illicit terrorist association. This group would be responsible for at least 30 of the attacks produced in the capital city.

The investigations, denominated by the press the “Bombs case”, forcibly and capriciously regroups 14 people who did not know each other, that have no links in some cases, even politically.

The charges that weigh on the comrades are a gross and ignorant blow, because historically anarchists have never have regrouped around a leader or cupola. The illicit association, as a concept , attacks the basis of anarchist horizontal organization, the only real thing about the application of this charge and concept is the increasing of possible sentences.
Power is smiling through the press, because revenge has been unleashed on a diffuse area that questions the very existence of authority. It’s raining insults and the fear is spreading, making many retreat and stay in silence and remaining silent as their only answer.

In spite of that, not everything is silenced, there still exist those who use all the instruments possible to fight against power.

Sadly, on June 1, of 2011, a terrible accident stains a new date in the calendar with blood. That cold dawn comrade Luciano Pitronello, Turtle, (22 years) takes the terrible blast of the shockwave of a homemade bomb placed in a bank. The comrade Turtle advances wounded and in shock, while the security cameras record those crucial minutes. The fire devours his clothes while his steps are disoriented by the pain.

The press arrives at the spot almost immediately. Like the good mercenaries that they are, they point their cameras with morbid intention to hurt the feelings of Turtle and his dear ones.

This is the way that the comrade is filmed : wounded and naked, covered in gunpowder and screaming in pain. These images will be repeated continuously as the best advertisement of the misery that represents capital and its culture of arrogance.

“A comrade is wounded and in the hands of the police, that is reason enough to support and show solidarity”….

Turtle is transferred to a hospital, where his right hand and three fingers of the left one are amputated from him. His eyes are seriously damaged and he is only able to distinguish indistinct forms. His hearing has also been damaged, and he has had dozens of skingrafts of his own skin.

He is badly wounded and his condition is serious. Even so, he manages to go forward, to push his body in spite of facing a very complex situation, as much in terms of health as in the moral and judicial consequences.

Almost 4 months after Turtle’s accident, the comrade left the clinic where he was being held, and transferred to the home of his mother, where he remains under police and family monitoring.

Sadly, in all these months, not only has his nuclear family collaborated with the police organisms giving the names of Turtle’s circle of friends, but they have also publicly discredited the ideas and way of life of our comrade Turtle.
This lamentable fact reminds us of other experiences, where even brothers or couples decided to collaborate with the police, due to fear or for economic reward.

Very different from the combative and supportive attitude that other parents and families who have come out into the streets for many years, demanding the freedom of their dear ones or rescuing their names from oblivion.
Respect for the ideas and decisions of their sons and daughters is essential for those who do not become collaborators of their relatives’s enemies.

Turtle’s partner, with whom he has a 3 year old daughter, has been supportive of the comrade, but also has been the target of the revenge of the press and of justice. Her home has being raided and her personal life has been put on display as a way to break her morale.

Face to face with the enemy

This September 22, the comrade Turtle will have to face the formalization of charges in front of the Chilean judges. That day Capital, the Chilean State and its powers, will wreak revenge on the comrade. Revenge that has been meticulously orchestrated and prepared, for every detail strikes him accurately.

Comrade Luciano, still convalescing from his wounds and wearing a special suit for burns, will have to appear before a crowded room not only of judges, lawyers and gendarmes, but also of mercenary journalists. Who will no doubt photograph each of his wounds and film any difficulty the comrade has in moving.

Therefore the revenge that he will receive is composed of two factors, one entirely judicial, because the comrade will face a court who represents the bourgeois and democratic social order. A court that will not hesitate a second in sentencing him to one long sentence in some modern extermination centre. With this, looking to give a clear signal to all those who decide to go beyond the submissive citizen routine and the peace of cemeteries imposed by normality.
But a second aspect, no less important, of the revenge orchestrated by Power against Luciano, has to do with the level of media exhibition.

The morbid spectacle that they will erect in that room of the court, has the aim of destroying the comrade, to make him collapse politically and psychically, to attack his moral and annihilate it. As also to strike those close to him and who are like him and support with him.

Power yearns to turn the life of our comrade Turtle into the example of punishment, to instill fear and stagnation into all the dissident sectors of the democratic theatre.

By punishing Turtle, they will try to punish all those who refuse to swallow the story of the social pact; there are already groups, anarchists, who are taking upon themselves an open offensive against capital state/, with its symbols and organizational forms, like also all the groups and individual students that in insurrectional ways are taking to the streets and leaving in them the sweat and the blood, after long days of confrontations with the police.

All of the context lived recently on that piece of land named Chile, constitutes one more of the scenarios of the social war like in various parts of the “globe”.

The overflowing of the “citizen protests ” of the uncontrollables, once again surpasses with deeds and words the desired social control and sense of normality that is installed through mass means.

It is in this same path of struggle and action, of persistence and courage, that Turtle took words and dreams, turning them into arms, attacking in spite of the possible consequences that we all know.

The State/Capital through its legal/mediatic/policial institutions is trying to establish its authority unquestioned. Public defamation, repression, jail and bullets will be some of the varied weapons that they will use with in the object of breaking the will and the actions of the irreducible ones that do not look for dialogue, because they are consumed in war against all authority.

In that sense fear, paralysis, passivity or silence concerning the situation that faces Luciano means to hand oneself over to the enemy. Our resignation against what happens with the comrade will give a victory to power and its control mechanisms.

The role of the journalists/police in the conflict.

The State, shamed by the lack of concrete results to give the people charged with the explosive attacks, is elaborating ridiculous theories, that they are trying to sustain with police stupidity, mass media and massive indifference.
Lamentably, Turtle’s accident grants them the perfect occasion to create an immense apparatus in the style of the old Roman circus to apply its laws.

In this process of public lynching not only police and judges have become jumbled, but the great mass media, who play a fundamental roll. Contributors, accomplices, collaborators and central place in the power relationships.

Not only do they work openly with the police, in addition they do not scrimp in efforts to publicly and morbidly exhibit the bodies of the comrades in the prisoners’ dock, exhibit their wounds or their dead bodies.

They exhibited our brother Mauri, showing his dead body, causing deep pain to his dear ones and comrades. They invented a supposed interview to false comrades of Mauri, eager only to discredit him and systematically attacked his surroundings of affection and commitment. They validated with infamous news articles, all the repressive game of the bomb case.

The insult that we have received from the journalists cannot be forgotten, it cannot be standardized and ingenuously believed that they are just the excesses of precise people. They have attacked, they have harmed our dignity and the privacy of our brothers and that humiliation must be returned, blow by blow, until they back down.

It is the work of the press, more and more committed in the direct fight against those who take up the offensive, that has generated gross stereotypes of those who fight. Their news articles instill paranoia and demonisation, generating concepts like “ vandals ”, “ soulless ” and “ violent ”, to mention a few.

In these days they give a prize to the good citizen, decree the minute of fame, for the stupid idiot ones that collaborate with the control organisms, or assume reactionary positions as informers in the student mobilizations.

But the footmen journalists have not stopped there, they took a further step in persecuting, coarsely denouncing and defamating the comrades in incredible ways. They have arrived at the point from which journalists like Max Frick and F.A.V.P. appear as protected witnesses in the Bomb case.

Their testimonies, plagued with lies and personal revenge, are trying to condemn the comrades in one of the most media orchestrated cases of recent times. For their declarations these two idiots receive protection and money from the State… their lives get fat and comfortable, while our brothers undergo confinement.

Our answer: solidarity

It is against these facts and against the police attack, that we must make clear that revolutionary solidarity, internationalism and active memory are substantial and indissoluble elements in all the process of struggle.
To the comrades who are in the front firing line receiving the blows of the power, we, from this small written gesture, shout with all our lungs: solidarity, memory and action!!!

All those directly facing Capitalism are our brothers, and we shout tears for those no longer physically with us. We have not forgotten them, we are all with you and in all the possible ways, always present, eternally present.

This is the moment in which the slogan “nobody is alone in the social war”, must acquire a special practical meaning. It depends on us, certainly, and on our real will to realise the common effort of solidarity.

All actions are extremely valuable and urgent: letters, pamphlets, discussion, agitation, bombs and fire, are feeding the indomitable spirit of our comrades.

For that reason the call is to organize solidarity this September 22. We must make our brother and comrade feel by means of all type of gestures, that the fighters of all parts of the globe are sharing this hard trial with him. Because the fight for freedom is one, inside and outside. Forgetfulness and silence… are characteristic only of traitors.

Debate, spread, attack, not one step back in front of the enemy.

Fire and more fire for Capitalism, their defenders and their false critics.

A fraternal greeting and total support to comrade Luciano at this difficult moment and those that may come.
Rebel spirits: they are not satisfied with being affected by what happens to Luciano… from words to acts, the actions will make us brothers, no matters how dark the night appears.

Active solidarity, with the comrades in Chile, Greece, Switzerland, Mexico, the USA and all the accomplices of the revolt in each corner of the world.

Freedom to all political prisoners! Fire to the jail, flight to the rebels!

To the streets for the young people assassinated during the student protests: Manuel Gutierrez and Mario Parraguéz, we do not want bourgeois justice, we look for revolutionary execution …..

In memory of our dear comrade Claudia Lopez, young anarchist assassinated by the police on September 11, 1998 in area of La Pincoya.

Black September of 2011.

Communique from Luciano Pitronello Incendarity Cell in solidarity with prisoners of the world (Argentina)

Friday, June 24th, 2011

From culmine, translated by war on society:

During the international week for total liberation we went to the Banco Santander Rio at Av. Gaona and Cuenca in the Flores Neighborhood, we doused two ATMs with gasoline and we left an incendiary device that then burned and destroyed them.

We share this action with those who take the decision to go on the offensive for human, animal and earth liberation.

Remembering Mauricio Morales.

For the freedom of Walter Bond, Marie Mason and Eric McDavid in the United States; Silvia, Billy and Costa in Switzerland who next month will be judged by the authorities of that country; 10 months into the bombs case, solidarity with the anarchists in Chile.

The war against this society continues in all places, in Italy, France, Spain, Mexico, etc.

Imprisoned, the comrades of Conspiracy of Cells of Fire do not collaborate with their enemies and struggle until the end.

For those fallen in combat against the forces of social control in Argentina, prisoners in the Ezeiza, Marcos Paz, Devoto prisons…

For all those who conspire in the extension of permanent conflict against the powers that dominate our lives. A fraternal greeting.

For the proliferation of attacks against authority and its properties.

Until the last animal is free, we are all prisoners.

Long live direct action that breaks with those established in the system.

To not wait; the spectacle must end; to be participants in what we desire.

Attack against Santander Bank in Temuko – Solidarity with Luciano Tortuga (Chile)

Monday, June 6th, 2011

Attacked Santander bank

From culmine, rough translation by sysiphus.

4 June 2011

“Today one day from Luciano Pitronello’s accident and then the foul media handling, Today when the Peñi [Mapuche prisoners] have reached 80 days of liquid hunger strike, when the ‘caso bombas’ continues, when wages do not stop being worth less and Education is still used by the guardians of the capital as a tool of indoctrination. We masked up in Temuko and decided to break with everyday habits and show our discontent. Reclaiming the subversive struggle as a legitimate tool against capitalism and all forms of oppression.

Thus, when our spontaneity walks with us and the image of Luciano is no longer molested by the bourgeois press, a group of comrades decided to attack the headquarters of Santander in Santiago paradoxically located in front of the library within the university it is not surprising. The attack included molotov cocktails, paint, and camotazos that broke the cynical image of the thieves, with each stroke claiming the destruction of capital and all the institutions that crush the dignity of the oppressed, recalling with each stroke the act of overcoming fear, like the comrades early Wednesday at the intersection of Victoria Vicuña Mackenna, as they pick it up again today as an example of struggle and therefore against Capital and all authority.

Solidarity with Luciano and his family and all brothers and sisters that attempt and will act against capitalism and the state.

More infos from: Viva La Anarquia

Breaking news of an immediate act of solidarity with Luciano, or ‘Tortuga’ (Turtle), as he is known to his close ones, can be found on the excellent anti-info website Culmine. Not one step back from the struggle – HONOUR AND DIGNITY TO LUCIANO – COURAGE AND STRENGTH TO ALL.

Received from Arde Moyano Records:

At 2:25 a.m. on Wednesday, Luciano Pitronello Schuffeneger (aged 22), who was travelling with a passenger on a motorcycle, it was decided to install a 1 kg extinguisher filled with black powder in a branch of Santander bank located between Victoria street and Vicuña Mackenna, Santiago, against the television channel “Mega”. Due to a flaw in the timing system the bomb exploded while being handled.

Luciano is in a life threatening condition and has lost both eyes and both arms. When the bomb exploded, Luciano began to burn and run, being aided by a taxi driver who went out with a fire extinguisher. At this time Luciano is in the central hospital hovering between life and death, in an artificially induced coma in a critical condition and also in police custody. His companion fled the scene on the motorcycle that is being sought by police.

Luciano was part of a group of squatters who suffered the raids of December 11, 2011 [1] and his name was in place 62 of the list of 182 investigated by the Bombs Case [2]. His home, where he lived with his girlfriend, was raided. We are waiting for if the police will do more searches and also about the comrade’s state of health.

Soon there will be update videos about the situation on the youtube channel of Arde Moyano Records: [3].

SOLIDARITY WITH LUCIANO!


ESPAÑOL:
A las 2:25 AM de hoy miércoles, Luciano Pitronello Schuffeneger (de 22 años), que viajaba junto a un(a) acompañante en una motocicleta, se dispuso a instalar un extintor de 1 kilógramo relleno con pólvora negra en una sucursal del Banco Santander ubicado entre calle Victoria con Vicuña Mackena en la comuna de Santiago, frente al canal de televisión Mega. Debido a una falla en el sistema de relojería la bomba explotó mientras era manipulada.

Luciano está en riesgo vital y ya ha perdido ambos ojos y los dos brazos. Al explotar la bomba, Luciano comenzó a quemarse y a correr, siendo auxiliado por un taxista que lo apagó con un extintor. En estos momentos se encuentra en la Posta Central debatiéndose entre la vida y la muerte, con coma inducido, en estado grave y custodia policial. Su acompañante, huyó del lugar en la motocicleta que está siendo buscada.

Luciano formaba parte de un grupo de okupas que sufrió los allanamientos del 11 de diciembre de 2011[1] y su nombre estaba en el lugar 62 de la lista de 182 investigados por el Caso Bombas[2]. Su hogar, donde vivía con su novia, ya fue allanado. Estamos pendientes por si se realizan más allanamientos y del estado de salud del compa.

Pronto subiremos los videos a nuestro canal de youtube[3].

¡SOLIDARIDAD CON LUCIANO!

Received from Arde Moyano Records:

Hermanxs, queremos rectificar unos datos que erróneamente hemos difundido sobre Luciano.

1: Él NO formaba parte de ningún grupo okupa.
2: Lo que sucedió fue que él -durante los allanamientos del 11 de diciembre de 2009- solidarizó con lxs compas del CSO Sacco y Vanzetti y mientras lo hacía, la policía le realizó un control de identidad.
3: Lo anterior NO significa que Luciano tenga relación con lxs compas del CSO Sacco y Vanzetti. Es cierto que Luciano asistía como público a las actividades que allí se realizaban, pero no olvidemos que éstas actividades eran de carácter abierto y a ellas asistían personas de una gran gama de ideologías, incluso policías infiltradxs.
4: Es absurdo pensar que Luciano tenga relación con otros bombazos. Es absurdo hacer cualquier hipótesis sin antes escuchar palabras desde la misma boca de Luciano.
5: Aclaramos que -a causa de alguna(s) crítica(s) que hemos recibido- nosotrxs NO repetimos lo que aparece en noticiarios burgueses. Nosotrxs no dijimos que el/la acompañante de Luciano “huyó, dejándolo solo en el lugar”. Tenemos la convicción de que quien acompañó a Luciano esa noche tomó una de las decisiones más difíciles que simples humanxs como nosotrxs podemos comprender.

Abrazos para todxs.
Fuerza para Luciano.

Brothers and sisters, we want to correct some wrong information that we released on Luciano.

1: He was NOT part of any squatter group.
2: What happened was that he -during the raids of december 11th, 2009 – in solidarity with comrades of the Sacco and Vanzetti Squat and as he did, police carried out an identity check.
3: This does NOT mean that Luciano has a connection with the comrades of Sacco and Vanzetti Squat. It is true that luciano and public attended the activities held there, but do not forget that these activities were open-ended and they were attended by those of a wide range of ideologies, even police infiltrators.
4: It is absurd to think that Luciano has a connection with other bombings. It is absurd to make any assumption without hearing words from the very mouth of Luciano.
5: We clarify that -because of some criticism that we received- we will not repeat what appears in news bourgeois. We did not say the Luciano’s partner “leaving him alone in the place”. We believe that Luciano who accompanied that night took one of the hardest decisions that mere humans like us can understand.

Cheers for all.
Honor for Luciano.

Communique of actions for Mauri by Praxedis G. Guerrero Autonomous Cells for Immediate Revolution (Mexico)

Sunday, May 29th, 2011

from Culmine, translated by War on society:

We claim ourselves the agents of the following attacks with explosives:

*The placement and detonation of the explosive device that blew up in the Santander [bank] at Tlalpan and Normandía streets, Mexico City.

*Explosive device against a Starbucks located on the commercial avenue “Paseo de la Reforma,” Mexico City.

The morning of the 22nd of May of 2009, a warrior for freedom left us, but he will never be forgotten, he will live forever in the anti-authoritarian offensive, which is directed against the promoters of insane violence and of social control. Punk Mauri died in combat, struggling against the enemy, fighting for his ideas, despite what the enemies of our rebellion say, comrade Mauri died in the direct solidarity struggle with the comrades caged in the prisons of the state.

What happened yesterday is our way of remembering him, of showing what between ourselves stays alive–the spirit of that iconoclastic warrior: attacking those he always attacked, committing an outrage against the system of domination and the social peace that he, like us, loathed. Without mediation in our struggle and with our firm convictions. His words remind us every day that we must not take even one step back, that beyond our fronts there lies a capitalist world that needs to explode. One bomb, two, three…. Arm yourself and become violent, beautifully violent, until everything explodes… Arm yourself and combat the terrorism, burn, conspire, sabotage and become violent, beautifully violent, naturally violent, boldly violent… Anarchy does not die in the mouth, it prevails in active hands… were his words and his action.

The targets against which we directed our attack this time are part of the machinery by which the state/capital continue to remain intact. The banks and capitalist businesses are what dominate the world in this new stage of capitalism: technological capitalism. They are who, with the ownership of the economy, make, direct, and control the life of millions of slaves of the illusory well-being, the life of a society submissive to the longings to receive crumbs from power. Not to mention the banking institutions finance the construction of new public and private prisons in which they exploit the prisoners for the supposed purpose of reinsertion, obviously a reinsertion into capitalist society. They are in part those responsible for sexism, misogyny, destruction of the environment…

The devices were made from metal cans, butane gas canisters, screws and dynamite. All these actions are minimized by the inferiorist [a play on the words “inferior” and “interiorista” meaning person in the ministry of the interior – transl] Miguel Mancera in a clear intention to cover up the anarchist offensive and who, on seeing his order upset and his security evaded, with decaying arguments and explanations intends to explain the components of our devices, our form of action and our motives, which he certainly will never understand, since our motive is to annihilate the system that protects him. His lie-laden declarations contradict the version he gave to a TV journalist after the explosive attack against the Santander in Navarte in April of last year.

A greeting of solidarity to compañero Gabriel Pombo… We are with you… always with the rebels!!!

“We are not in agreement with what they impose on us and we will destroy those who press on us many problems we will have to face but more will be the reasons to struggle nothing imports on us that we have to fight now that our struggle will never finish… We will not allow them to control our lives and we will struggle against all authority not only the bad times will exist, there also will be moments of great joy. We should initiate subversive actions to stop thus power from reaching freedom…”

STRUGGLE!!! STRUGGLE!!! STRUGGLE!!! UNTIL THE END!!!

STRUGGLE!!! STRUGGLE!!! STRUGGLE!!! FOR YOUR FREEDOM!!!

For freedom, for anarchy…. For the multiplication of bombings and actions against the state/capital!!!

Against the prison society and the police state!!!

For the expansion of the social war on all fronts!!!

Mauricio Morales… Presente!!!!

At war against the state:
