São Paulo: Incendiary sabotage of ITAU Bank by 'Movimento Insurgente Anarquista – MIA' (Brazil)

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

The attack was on an ITAU Bank, in the central region of São José dos Campos – São Paulo, Brazil.

“We have this fantasy that our interests and the interests of the super-rich are the same – as if, somehow, the rich eventually will become so wealthy that they will explode, and the candy will rain down on the rest of us. As if they were a kind of piñata of benevolence. But here’s the truth about the piñatas: They do not break alone. You have to hit them with a stick.”

Our recent attack on a Bradesco bank raised some doubt in the corporate media. Indeed, the bomb placed in the third [ATM] cubicle did not explode. The intention, so far, as reported by certain outlets, was the robbery of your rotten money. But after all, an incendiary device with 5 gallons of gasoline with oil and additives, will never make an ATM explode.

Our intention was to burn your house of Capital.

On the night of 13 September, in one of the elite neighborhoods of Sao Jose dos Campos, we carried out another incendiary attack on a bank branch. This time we targeted ITAU, who in the second business quarter of 2015 made an obscene income of R$5.9 billion.

Apparently, cashing in on interest and speculating on other people’s labour is the only thing that actually continues to move the already rusty gears of the capitalist superstructure. It’s the insanity of our times, where the weakest live in crisis while those at the top feast at our expense. The attacks upon the lower classes they call ‘adjustment’, whilst any attack against the upper classes they call ‘terrorism.’

As if that was not enough, the puppet [President] Dilma Rousseff attacks the workers with harsh austerity measures, divestment and cuts to social programs and we still have to swallow a congress full of rats and worms – and all strains of parasites – fattening their stomachs with money coming from the lobbying of corporations, companies, banks and agribusiness. Suits acting in their own interests against the wishes of the people. This is what is known as ‘democracy.’ (more…)
