While the garbage in uniforms occupied for another night Exarchia and the center of Athens, to fulfill the dreams of Mr. Chryssochidis of a dead and safe city, our ways lead to a soft target.
The image of George Orwell „1984“ is already reality. The internet of things implements televisions, refrigerators and other electronic stuff in our homes, in order to collect our data, to survey our habits, to transform human life in digital algorithm. They call it Smart City, we call it a totalitarian society.
A company which sells the hard ware of the smart city and also its ideologies, is the security company „Alphacom“. Alphacom not only provides this, but also CCTV technology and other equipment for the rich and for authorities, to protect their interests. And last but not least, Alphacom is selling and installing the products of Tyco. Tyco is a mulitinational company, which produces surveillance technologies for prisons worldwide and other security forces.
In the early hours of December 2, we burned the van of Alphacom in front of their shop in Kaisariani.
This fire was lit for anarchist prisoner Dino Giagtzoglou, who wrote a letter to the International Meeting against the Techno-Sciences in Italy (July 2019)
in which he mentions many reasons to fight this part of the capitalist powersystem. We welcome the upcoming research about the players in this game.
This fire was also lit for Loic, still in prison in Hamburg.
Finally, this attack was made in solidarity and sympathy with those persecuted for the Revolutionary Self-Defense case, as well as those persecuted for good intentions, kinship or friendship. Our strength and solidarity are superior to the politics and repressive operations.
Strength to the comrades Michailidis, Athanassopoulou, Chatzivasileiadis, who are in illegality.

In the night of Thursday 7th of November 2019, we chose to attack to the riot-police (MAT) van, which stays in front of the KINAL (ex PASOK) offices, and to the motorcycle-police (DIAS forces) that was accompanying them during their shift-change. Our choice was totally targeted.
In a conjuncture that the government of New Democracy has unleashed a man-hunt against anyone who fights, in a conjuncture of evicting migrant’s and political-social spaces of struggle, in a conjuncture of the concrete abolition of the university’s asylum and the invasion of MAT and OPKE cops into the universities – in this conjuncture we chose to make an ambush against the scums of MAT and the lackeys of the DIAS forces, and attack them from two sides with incendiary devices, destroying their motorbikes, injuring three of them, and simultaneously trying to burn the van that was immobilized on Eressou street.
This action took place inside the area of Exarchia, so as to make clear that the continuation of the state’s repressive policy’s aggravation will have the equivalent answers. What followed our action, just verified our valid act to -victoriously- fight against the torturers of the Greek Police: random prosecutions, attempt to invade the café on the square, tortures against combatants, fulfilling the neighbourhood with tear-gases.
Police showed its real face once again, when a few militants -with home-made means of struggle- attacked the fully-armed guards of the order, managing to ruck the contrived omnipotence sense in this area.
Managing, also, to remind that the “surgical” operations of M. Chrisochoidis police are carried out with no anaesthetic, when they have to cope with the resistance which shames repression and measures its limits. And, finally, reminding that, without combative reflexes and intensification of the social-class resistances, it is sure that these repressive operations will achieve to numb and paralyze the movement, which will get used to the repression, incorporating fear and relinquishment.
The attack against the movement is an integral part of a larger attack against the acquired rights established on the cost and with the self-sacrifice of the combative society. The supposed passage towards the capitalist development, as a last effort of the system to handle the deep structural crisis of the Capital, signs the higher accumulation of wealth in the rich hands, the deepening of exploitation against the poor ones, the re-allocation of poverty and beggary, the intensification of precarious, underpaid and undervalued work.
That’s why capitalism constantly upgrades its repressive arsenal. That’s why it strengthens it’s laws against the insurrection that will, necessarily, outbreak the next years in Greece too. That’s why it attacks rashly and rabidly against the structures and the people of struggle, treating the movement as a “criminal association” which must be immediately eradicated.
If we want to block the preventive strategy of counter-insurgency, we must raise the wall of the movement’s self-defence and the social-class
counter-violence against it.
PS.: Strength to the anarchist comrade V. Stathopoulos, who was imprisoned after the massive repressive operation that was concerted by the scums of anti-terrorist police on the 8th and 9th of November 2019.

Athens, Greece: Responsibility claim for the attack to the New Democracy offices and to the Hellenic Post at Pefki
Sunday, November 24th, 2019
We claim the responsibility for the incendiary attacks against the local offices of New Democracy and the building of the Hellenic Post at the area of Pefki in the northern suburbs (of Athens), as a fiery welcoming for the new government and its politicians, such us the human garbage with the axes* who sit on the parliament seats, and our lovely scum Adonis Georgiadis, an infamous hilarious political figure of the extreme right wing. Each one of our attacks is a promise to our struggle towards anarchy, and our signal of solidarity with our wanted and imprisoned comrades. For now, we don’t have many things to say. Now is the moment for action and for constant and abiding multi-form struggle. Strength to and complicity with everyone who will take the streets with the desire to vandalize, to throw stones to the cops, and to burn the authoritarian symbols. Strength to and complicity with all the anarchist prisoners all around the world. Solidarity means attack.
STRENGTH TO THE WANTED ANARCHIST DIMITRIS CHANTZIVASILIADIS
Nothing is over, we’ll be back
LONG LIVE ANARCHY
PS.: STRENGTH TO THE IMPRISONED ANARCHIST V. STATHOPOULOS
ANARCHIST COMBATANTS / “HORIZON OF DESTRUCTION” CELL

On the night of November 6, 2019, we burned 5 cars of MM [Metropolitane Milanesi] in Forze Armate street in Milan because MM is one of those responsible for the evictions of houses.
This action is in solidarity with all those arrested and investigated after the eviction of Asilo Occupato in Turin.
In solidarity with those affected by the repression at Barona in Milan.
In solidarity with all prisoners.
Note: Metropolitane Milanesi, the company that manages underground transport in Milan, since some years is managing a part of the residential popular housing in Milan; while the remaining part is managed by Aler. Barona is a neighborhood in Milan; the repressive fact referred to in the text happened on October 30, when some members of the Comitato Autonomo Abitanti Barona (“Autonomous Committee of Barona Inhabitants”, an antagonistic group related to the struggle for the house in the neighborhood) received some “divieti di dimora” (bans) from Milan.

On the night of 31 October 2019, we, the anarchists of Kyiv, attacked a police station in the town of Vishnyovoe, Kyiv region (address: 22 Balukova Street). Having found a hidden approach to the parking lot, we used Molotovs to destroy police vehicles.
The police are an instrument of violence in the hands of the State. We can hear that the Ukrainian police have become “better” since the reform. When drunk policemen killed a 5-year-old child in Pereyaslav-Khemnitsky on 3 June 2019, they showed us what all these reforms cost. We do not need “improved police”, but a new system: direct people’s self-governance and real control of the people over the resources and economy of the country. The order must be ensured by the structures accountable to the self-government bodies. The police in their present form are executioners at the service of robbers and oppressors. It should be abolished as an institution.
We dedicate our operation to the memory of the Russian anarchist Mikhail Zhlobitsky. Exactly one year ago, Mikhail committed an act of retaliation against the executioners and sadists of the FSB. He detonated an improvised explosive device in the Department of FSB of Arkhangelsk and sacrificed his life. The solidarity of the revolutionaries does not know the state borders. We feel the pain of the distant like-minded person as our own. We are convinced that the feat of Mikhail Zhlobitsky will not be forgotten. We call on all honest people of the world to make October 31 a day of active action against the oppressors.
Freedom or death
Long live the revolution!

On the Sunday morning, October 27, 2019, an explosion occurred in the Proletarsky district of Donetsk. The mobile communications tower of the Phoenix operator was blown up. The civilian population was not injured, but the equipment was destroyed. An explosive device was landed under a booth with equipment and triggered remotely. The people who committed the explosion published a video of the action. They also demonstrated a leaflet explaining their motives: “This was done to draw the attention to the inhuman tortures in the basements of the MGB (Ministry of State Security of “Donbass People’s Republic”). Abuses and tortures with electric wires in the “people’s” republics has become an everyday normality. The people of Donbass should go to a protest rally against tortures, or the fascist republic will be left without communication. ”
Our comrades from the Combatant-Anarchist resource report that they received anonymous information that this action was performed by anarchists, in memory of the act of Mikhail Zhlobitsky.

In the heart of Easton, next to a school, in a busy residential area between a well used railway line and a motorway, is enough aviation fuel to cause a major explosion. Aviation fuel contains over 2,000 chemicals. Once ignited it has a much higher BTU (British Thermal Unit) than gasoline and can burn much longer. In Easton, there are 6 white tankers, each 60 foot long.
We are often labelled “terrorists” but if we were then… boom! bye, bye! Instead, we decided to attack these containers with dark blue paint. In executing this small act of defiance we hope to highlight their existance, and the danger they pose. This prank was also done to add to the current discourse and campaigns around the expansion of Bristol Airport. (more…)

On September 2nd, we attacked the Greek embassy in New York City, smashing the front window and tagging the entrance with a circle-A.
This action was in solidarity with the anarchists and refugees in Exarcheia, where the fascist Greek state has begun evicting squats and sending immigrants to concentration camps. So far, at least four squats have been evicted and 143 people arrested by the pigs, brutally ripping people from their homes under orders from the extreme right-wing New Democracy party.
Let’s not forget it is the American imperialist pigs, along with the British and French colonizers, that have brutally exploited and occupied parts of the Middle East and Africa, carving away borders with blood and making way for puppet regimes and despots forcing millions to flee their homes.

We learned with rage that our comrades of Hamburg known as “the park bench three”, are in prison on remand. The fact that two of them are charged with “harmful inclinations” doesn’t surprise us. Always, those who rebel against the prevailing order are condemned as “parasites”.
Our comrades are clearly accused of attempted arson as they were arrested in possession of incendiaries in this Hamburg park. It should be clear to everyone that this is yet another repressive blow against the anti-G20 rebels and their world, also concerning the arrest on the day of the anniversary of the riots. (more…)

Makassar, Indonesia, August 21st, 2019: Dozens of Makassar citizens took direct action (blocking the road) in front of the Hasanuddin University to convey solidarity with West Papuans who received racist acts and violence from the military, police and ultra-nationalist civil militias.
As for what is written on the banner:
MAKASSAR CITIZENS SOLIDARITY FOR PAPUA
1. STOP TORTURING PAPUANS RIGHT NOW!
2. PAPUANS ARE FREE TO CHOOSE THEIR OWN WAY (TO FREEDOM)
3. TNI (Indonesian Armed Forces), POLRI (Indonesian Police Force) AND FASCIST CIVIL MILITIAS, STOP YOUR RACIST ACTS, YOU DICK SHIT!

On the 25th of July, 2019, a parcel bomb was delivered to Police Station 54 in Huechuraba, Santiago. The parcel was opened and successfully detonated, causing material destruction to the police station and hospitalizing 5 police officers. On the same day, a second parcel bomb was intercepted before it could be opened at the headquarters of Quinenco SA, one of the holding companies through which Chile’s richest family controls the Bank of Chile. A police and State-generated media frenzy soon ensued with much speculation regarding the identity of the senders of the explosive packages. Now, an anarchist cell calling themselves SEDITIOUS ACCOMPLICES / FRACTION FOR REVENGE have issued a communique claiming responsibility for both attacks in which they stated that they were specifically targeting two individuals- Carabineros Major Manuel Guzmán at Police Station 54 in Huechuraba and former Minister of the Interior Rodrigo Hinzpeter who now works at Quinenco SA. Below is an English translation of the original communique that was posted on Contra Info….
OPERATION FOR THE EXPANSION OF HOSTILITIES AGAINST THE EXECUTIONERS
We claim responsibility for the two parcels composed of black gunpowder and dynamite addressed to Rodrigo Hinzpeter and Carabineros Chief Manuel Guzmán at Police Station 54 in Huechuraba.
We took all the necessary security measures to ensure that the devices only exploded in the hands of the persons targeted by our action. Our enemies are clear to us, we are not seeking to harm or injure random people. While we know that we all are part of the operation of dominion, we recognize that there are degrees of responsibility and the recipients of our explosive parcels have decisive roles in both the management and accumulation of capital and in State control and repression.

CCTV Burnt and Advertising Attacked in Bristol, on the 30th July.
A new LED advertising screen by the M32 motorway in Bristol tells us to “Be On It”… Well, we are!!! The screen was damaged using sling shots. Advertisers want people to focus their attention on shitty corporate messaging instead of concentrating on their driving. We are “on it”, and we are not excited by the products, upgrades ,and the boring lifestyles and aspirations they are selling… We desire damage and destruction… and dream of sabotage.
CCTV was also burnt out at Gaunts Ham Park (a day centre for homeless people in Lawrence Hill). The wiring was destroyed in an expression of rage against the surveillance state that increasingly targets those who do not conform. Using a long pole, and a firelighter attached to a clothes peg, this act was “begging” to be done! More and more people are marginalised, and the housing crisis in Bristol is one aspect of the social war which we are all part of…..
Solidarity with all those resisting it! Especially to: ‘Der Drei Von Der Parkbank’ in Hamburg, and those imprisoned as part of ‘Operation Panico’.

We hate prisons, many of our comrades are held in them, some are tortured, and prisons are at the heart of enforcing the established order. Vinci builds prisons, this vehicle belonged to them, so we wanted to set it on fire. So the train of thought that led to the destruction of the road construction vehicle on June 24 was actually quite simple.

From the urban desert of the danger zone in Friedrichshain we send a signal of our solidarity to Yiannis Dimitrakis, Kostas Sakkas and Dimitra Syrianou. On Monday morning, June 24, we erected a burning barricade on Weidenweg (Street near Rigaer and Liebig) together with a fixed banner (see text on picture). We were waiting with stones to welcome the first patrol car but they needed time to mass up strong forces to enter the area of Rigaer Straße, and we disappeared safe.

For June 11 – Solidarity for long term anarchist prisoners
Just outside the city limits of Bristol tucked away in the dark is a poultry farm (Ivy Farm) owned by P&S Mitchell LTD. Located in Whitchurch Lane, Dundry, the birds never see the light of day. Despite the CCTV, the grain silo and broiler house were both spray-painted with the words “Animal Prison”.
A new McDonalds restaurant that is not welcome is being built in Fishponds Road, but maybe the “Burger Off!” posters in local’s front windows isn’t enough. Graffiti was sprayed inside the building site – “McWork Prison”.
Vinney Green, hidden in Emersons Green on the edge of Bristol is a special secure detention unit for 10-17 year old “dangerous kids”. The unit holds up to 24 detainees. A large hole was cut in the perimeter fence and then the next inner security fence was broken through by bending back the bars, causing a second human size gap. Then the prison buildings themselves were sprayed with the words “Child Prison”, “Screws Work Here”.
Solidarity to Brian Vaillancourt who is serving a 9 year sentence in the USA for an arson of a McDonalds. To the imprisoned comrades in Italy who are fighting from inside the cells on hunger strike. To the 3 comrades arrested for bank robbery in Thessaloniki, Greece. To Lisa held in Spain. For all the imprisoned anarchists around the world.
Freedom for everyone!
