Hamburg, Germany: Fire and Flames for the Police!

In Hamburg we say goodbye to cop cars

On March 17, we set fire to two police cars in Hamburg. Right near the residence of Mayor Olaf Scholze we burned the vehicle of his guards on Schmarjestraße. In the Hindenburgstraße in front of the office of the police union (GdP) and directly in front of the police, a GdP van was torched.

The police union and their national chairman Kirsch threatened after the riot in Hamburg on 21.12.2013 that “Next time we will use sharp shooters!” A warning of an escalation in Hamburg, with reference to the clashes in Genoa and the assassination of Carlo Giuliani, was issued in a similar manner by the Confederation of German Detectives. It is quite clear that in the event of a loss of control during the G20 summit that dead demonstrators cannot be ruled out. The daily victims of the cops are seen as necessary collateral losses for this system.

The police union together work with the German police force as the political arm of the cops. They urge for a tightening of penalties regarding ‘physical’ attacks on police officers. For example, the planned paragraph 114 proposes that attacks should be punished more easily and more severely and in any case with imprisonment. There would not even need to be any physical injury. And if the attacker is carrying a weapon without using it or with the intention to use it, the punishment increases. The previous legislative paragraph was already tightened in 2011. But, contrary to the figures presented to the public, attacks on police officers have actually decreased in recent years. Even criminal lawyers have stated that serious injuries to police leading to prolonged incapacity in Germany are extremely rare. How unfortunate! So it seems obvious for whom their laws work.

The police union now have one less vehicle to provide the cops with coffee during the summit. And there is also one less van that can get in our way or patrol our neighborhoods. This may not be much, but it can be repeated at any time by anybody who decides to do so. Let us destroy what oppresses us. There is nothing to wait for!

We remember Ian Tomlinson, who died of a heart attack at the London G20 summit in 2009 after the cops had knocked him to the ground several times, bashed him and made no attempt to revive him.
We remember Carlo Giuliani, who was shot dead by the cops during the Genoa G7 summit in 2001. And to all those whose names are unknown who were murdered in everyday circumstances by the cops.

Before the summit, during the summit and after the summit: Against the state, capitalism and all authority!

Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Nemesis Project – Act 2 (Parcel-bomb attack against the German Minister of Finance)

Nine Years after the first appearance of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire in January 2008.

After more than 300 attacks against targets of domination that resulted in tens of millions of euros in damage and the transferring of fear to the camp of power.

After more than 60 arrests of comrades and other individuals over the years who have been accused of being our members and the thousands of years of imprisonment imposed upon them.

After so many times that Ministers and Police Chiefs have declared in the media that they have managed to ‘dismantle’ us and that “the CCF is finished.”

After the inclusion of the CCF in lists of ‘terrorist’ organizations by the State Department in the US and by Europol in the EU.

…we continue even louder.

With the creation of an international conspiratorial network of FAI and CCF cells in dozens of countries that have carried out and continue to carry out guerrilla attacks.

With even greater passion and tenacity to not only attack the infrastructure of the system but also the people in power.

Always against social apathy.

Always against the oppressors of our lives.

Still they cannot understand that the CCF is an idea and that the idea cannot be imprisoned because it is like the Hydra. For each comrade that is imprisoned, new comrades are ready to take their place and continue on the path of attack.

We still have the rage…

We sent a booby-trapped parcel bomb to the German Minister of Finance within the context of the campaign of the second act of Project Nemesis.

A communique will follow in the coming months.

Comradely greetings to the FAI direct action groups in Chile and Greece for their contributions to Project Nemesis.

Rebellious greetings to the FAI comrades in Italy and the imprisoned members of CCF in Greece who remain unrepentant.

Forward for the Black International of Anarchists of Praxis.

 

Nothing has ended, everything continues.

 

LONG LIVE ANARCHY

Chile: Free at Last! Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar onto the Streets!

SANTIAGO – Chilean Anarchists, Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar, arrived this morning at Santiago’s International Airport, after having been expelled from Spanish custody and deported back to their home country.

Mónica and Francisco had been charged under Spanish Anti-terrorism legislation for the alleged bombing of the Basilica del Pilar Church in Zaragoza, on Oct 2nd, 2013, and were arrested a month after the incident. Spanish prosecution initially sought a 44 year sentence for the accused, but instead received a 12 year sentence in 2014. The Defense took Mónica and Francisco’s case to the Spanish Supreme Court, where the sentence was further reduced to 4 and a half years this past December, having dropped one of the initial charges. At the time, the Spanish Supreme Court recognized that the intent of the bombing was to cause structural damage to a religious symbol  and thus were charged for loses and damages.

As a final recourse, the Defense submitted a claim under Spanish Penal Law No. 89, which states that foreigners can be deported to their country of origin after having spent a year in prison. The claim was accepted by the court, resulting in the expulsion of Mónica and Francisco back to Chile where they will be completely released from custody, pending any possible infractions with the Chilean justice system. Since they have none, they are able to walk free upon arrival passing through Chilean customs. Neither Mónica or Francisco ever recognized their involvement in the bombing, and in fact alleged the charges were part of broader state political persecution as Anarchists.

Mónica Caballero and Francisco Solar first came to Spain after their charges in the Chilean Anarchist Bombs Case were withdrawn by the Santiago court in 2012. The case was heavily publicized by the mass media throughout Chile when it first came to light in 2010, publicly broadcasting the arrest of the 12 accused who were depicted as terrorists. But the case quickly fell apart after insufficient and flimsy evidence was presented by State Prosecution in courts, resulting in the absolution of the Anarchists, as well as a governmental crisis of legitimacy. The Santiago Court ordered the State Prosecution to award $460 million Chilean pesos (approximately $700,000 USD) to the former Anarchist accused for losses and damages of having gone through the legal system, which was later upheld by the Chilean Supreme Court. Francisco Solar was awarded $100 million pesos, while Mónica Caballero was awarded $80 million pesos, which they then used to start a new life together as a couple in Spain.

Today, Mónica and Francisco will be able to walk free on the streets of Santiago and begin a new life together with their friends, family and comrades. We salute them in their brave dignified efforts throughout all these years of repression and persecution in resisting the confines of State prisons around the world.

In love and rage,

Viva la Anarquia!

Santiago, Chile: Incendiary attack against an electricity box on the IIRSA Project freeway

Received  22/02/17

In South America and Chile, the IIRSA (Initiative for the Integration of the Regional Infrastructure of South America) is advancing, and as individuals at war with civilization and power we do not sit idly by.

In the city of Santiago, one of its points of intervention is the cement mega-structure “Acceso Sur” (Access South), which starts the freeway that facilitates the transportation of goods from the center to the south of the country. This construction violently intervenes in the everyday landscape of the surrounding populations.

In the week of agitation against the IIRSA we illuminated the night with insurgent fire by burning an electricity box on that disgusting highway, demonstrating that power and its mega-projects remain vulnerable.

We materialize the hatred that continues under the cement of the streets and behind the walls of prisons in resistance and offensive against state power. This is why we greet Nataly Casanova, Juan Flores, Enrique Guzmán, the compañerxs of the “PDI Case”, the comrades Tato and Sol, the compañerxs of the “Security Case”, Mónica, Francisco, compañero Joaquín García and all the compañerxs in the jails of Greece, Spain, Italy, and the world.

Neither green capitalism nor ecological states.
To multiply the acts of autonomy and direct attack against the power and its projects that destroy the Earth and seek to dominate our lives.

BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA: CLAIM OF RESPONSABILITY FOR EXPLOSIVE-INCENDIARY ATTACK AGAINST VEHICLE

28/01/2017

Trough this text we take responsability for the attack with an explosive-incendiary device carried out againts a four-wheeled machine , in downtown of the city La Plata , province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, just at the beginning of the new gregorian year, 2017.

The device, consisting in a 2-litters fuel bottle , attached to two cans of butane gas , wich was activated by an inciense stick embedded in several piles of matches , was intended to completely destroy the vehicle and, as it happened, was reduced to half of its size and many fragments were scattered in the street, it was so destroyed that the car hood rose and could be seen through the scrap from side to side. The press did not mention of this act until today ,unless we know. They see a city where i see a devastated forest, they see a pet where i see a being enslaved , they see a product where i see a life torn away with egocentrism. They see a street where i see a hundred of dead beings. Do you see? Do you feel? i walk through the streets of a city and i know there are only atrocities, each human being reproducing civilized acts, each animal subjet to be seen as object or resource.

“ I Also scream in silence in those nights of terror , the whisper of the wind also runs inside me , runs in my screams , becomes a witness , the whisper of the wind scream with me.” N.

The hostility that produce in us the advance of civilization , only can incite in us a violent reaction. Just as nature’s reactions are often. On this ocassion , the fire was present, almost going unnoticed because was a day of celebration for the hiper-civilized. We take advange of the distraction for blowing up in pieces one of their horrendous cars. Today was only one, but i aspire to much more. We are working in the developing of more dangerous explosives. Our hand will not shake at the time of the attack against those responsible for sustaining this disgusting civilized reality.

“I hope that an infinite number of bombs explode against the citizenry”
On the side of hurricanes , earthquakes and volcanoes!

Fire , bombs and bullets against all the civilized!

Girls hostile to civilization.

Germany-Claim of responsibility and Statement – Wildfire Cell

Claim of responsibility and Statement – Wildfire Cell

I

“It’s about time that we burned this country, this artificial world; it’s the onset of the black fire that will consume their businesses and industry of the filthy techno-industrial society. It is now time to articulate a direct and cold criticism, away from fantasies, put it forth, and present strikes.”

As the plague of modernization runs rampant in the urban-cemetaries of technological mass-society, suffocating our existence more and more with every passing day, we press on with our personal war against civilization and the hordes of submissive cowards who recreate and uphold it with their everyday acts of servitude and compliance.

New innovations in the realm of technological control and domination advance daily, with most welcoming the proliferation of “smart” technologies and the total digitalization of life’s every aspect. In the name of “convenience” the hyper-civilized masses mediate the entirety of their worthless lives through screens and receivers, feeding the industrial leviathan with an endless stream of data. Data which with the aid of corporations like Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Vodafone, Sony etc. is used to further state and governmental surveillance programs, solidifying and enforcing the illusions of “social peace” and control.

Mobile phone antennas, besides functioning as important pieces of technical infrastructure for the smooth-functioning of society and the process of mass stupification also emit massive amounts of toxicity in the form of radiowaves and microwaves, resulting in tumors and brain damage in creatures dwelling nearby and are known to interfere with the navigational senses of birds and insects, leading to mass die-offs of entire colonies of bees and thus causing irreparable damage to existing ecosystems.

We know that by destroying these antennas and severing a couple of veins of the telecommunications sector we do little to harm the corporations who own these devices, but we create moments of pleasure and egoistic satisfaction in our lives, breaking with the routinization of life when spending time in the cities and aiming to cause stress and discomfort amongst the techno-junkies of the repugnant masses by disrupting the increasingly normalized and manufactured “need” for constant connectivity.
In the late hours of 2/2/17, accompanied by our furious hatred of society and a deep love for the aforementioned non-human animals, we spread our fire to the icy streets of Leipzig, Germany. Hooded and masked, we lurked under the cover of darkness and headed for our first target, a cluster of well-hidden antennas owned by Vodafone. We put the torch to a number of cables that ran up the side of a brick chimney between some houses and a vegan hipster cafe. The flames climbed all the way up the cables to the antennas, engulfing them completely and scattering flames and sparks across an area of 60 meters. This was achieved by covering the bottom of the exposed cables in flammable gel and then placing two slow-burning incendiaries between the cables. We lit them up and set off laughing to ourselves as we disappeared once more into the night.

Then on the night of 7/2/17 more attacks were carried out by an individuality of the cell in a different area of the city, these are their words.

… Between the sounds of the wintering forest and the sounds of non-human creatures trying to live their wild lives, in the middle of these calming moments I hear myself asking for moments of joy, for the free moments of rage. So I destroyed 7 hunting towers and when I was finished, my desire was asking for more. More moments of silent activities between the singing of the birds. More moments of self liberation. So in the same night I set fire to 6 cars indiscriminately. Without caring for the moral ideas of targets and accepted targets, the abstract ideas of the “right” or “wrong”. Just with my fully lonely desire for disturbing normal civilized life, just for the smell of burning rubber in the frosty winter air when you know that tomorrow some civilized slaves are going to cry for their disgusting cars. Three of them were torched completely…

In the news report concerning this attack, the police made the statement with regards to the motives of the arson spree that “A political background, however, can be excluded”. We were surprised to see that these morons actually got one thing right. We don’t give a shit about the “political”, we just want to have some fun while watching this whole world burn.

II

When we first began claiming some of our acts of destruction as the Wildfire Cell, we also associated our little gang with the ALF, ELF and FAI as part of a final experiment in communication between other interesting individualities within the “Anarchist” camp who we were not in direct contact with. Then in our second communique we abandoned the use of these acronyms and spoke briefly about some of our motivations for doing so. We will take the time to continue the dialogue surrounding this process here, for the sake of deconstructing the abstractions of our ideas which we ourselves were the authors of.

As we expressed previously, we no longer need these labels to “identify” ourselves or our actions as a “part” of anything. We will never belong to the “movements” created by these reified collectivist identities and we completely and especially reject the moralizing principles of “non-violence” towards “humans” advocated by the tendencies of the Animal Liberation Front and Earth Liberation Front.

We retained the name of the cell to mark clearly our departure from the sewers of ideologicalized and/or idealistic thinking and signify the development of our desires and iconoclastic praxis. To be honest with ourselves, we feel that in our first communique some rather erroneous claims were made by the use of expressions which at times we feel correspond with our passions, but inside the quagmire of civilized interactions, the chains of language present the opportunity for countless misinterpretations, rendering our war cries into mere slogans and catch-phrases reproducing roles and ideals. We aim to do away with all of these ghosts that hinder the strengthening of our individualities and block our paths towards the chaos of an unmediated, wild existence which we strive for in the present.

From here on the communiques and claims of responsibility coming from each nuclei of the Wildfire Cell will be accompanied by a secondary cell name to allow for greater flexibility and autonomy in carrying out international attacks and for clearer expression of the motives and opinions held by the individual(s) responsible.

We will be very clear that this is no “call out” for others who we do not know to take up our name in the ritualistic pluralism typical of the “Anarchist” camp. It is simply a strategic move on our behalf to enhance our capabilities for greater destruction.

III

When we speak of idealism, we mean the hypocritical idea of fighting for an external goal or cause, for some better future or mystified idol. As we do not believe in the possibility of destroying the prison of civilization completely, our acts of destruction are acts tending towards our self-liberation. Acts which aim to break the chains that society has forced upon us from birth and create the potential to escape the great cage momentarily by decivilizing ourselves and becoming dangerous. The idea of causing terror and disturbances amongst the slumbering masses and transforming the dream worlds of progressivism and utopia into a living nightmare for those we consider our enemies is for us an other important part of the reasons why we carry out our egoistic and criminal acts.

We are not “Anarchists” because we have long since rejected the stagnant ideology of “Anarchism”. We are not so foolish to invest any “hope” in the “struggle”. We are not motivated by devotional fantasies of “victory”, “revolution” or “collapse”. We have grown utterly sick of this christianizing circus and all of the posturing, censorship, backstabbing, moralistic preaching and the ceaseless dull chatter. We are not saying that all who call themselves “anarchists” fall into this ideological trap, there are still some unique ones who claim this “identity” for themselves, that is their discretion. Amongst these few we proudly count some of our close allies and accomplices.

We are a small circle of criminal nihilists and selfish individualists. Nihilism for us represents a process of negation and denial, it is our tool to tear down the walls of civilized constructs imposed on our indomitable egos. The cultural-social chains of “morality”, “identity”, “gender”, “altruism”, “optimism”, “equality”, “solidarity”, “respect”, “humanism”, “anthropocentrism” and so forth all go up in the flames of iconoclastic destruction. When we head into battle, we wield our nihilism as a weapon with which we playfully create moments of joyous rupture within the suffocating confines of techno-industrial society in the here and now. We are motivated by our desires and passions of vengeance for all that which we have lost. With all the strength and ingenuity we possess, we turn our vitality into our means of attack against the reality we hate, meeting our enemies head on and coming out stronger for it.

IV

We have wandered far and wide. We have seen the beauty of natural chaos deep within ancient woodlands and amongst the weeds that crack the concrete. In the solitude of the mountain tops and in the silent encounters with other nocturnal individuals stalking in the night.  When sharpening our knives in the shadows of the forests and conspiring around campfires with our fierce accomplices, those with whom we share the desire to break out of the cages of our domestication and become feral beings.

We have witnessed first-hand the devastation that the kingdom of “humanity” wreaks on the earthly environment, we have stood on the edges of vast and desolate quarries, we have walked through the clear cut forests and along the oil-slicked beaches strewn with plastic and the corpses of fishes and birds, feeling the hatred and anger building up inside us more and more like the blackness that gathers in our lungs. We have seen the horrors inside the factory farms and we each knew then in our hearts that liberation alone could never be enough.

We have set off incendiaries, torching the machines and infrastructure that annihilate the wild, momentarily paralyzing the norms and procedures of civilized order. We have launched attacks on the employees of ecocidal companies by daylight and moonlight, feeling more alive than ever as they fled before our knives, molotovs and stones. Our acts of vandalism have caused powercuts and severed internet and telephone connections to countless homes and businesses. We have rioted with criminal intent that does not stop at merely breaking a few windows and our rabid hands move to steal every necessity for our survival that comes within reach.

We are amoral, illegalist, antisocial and unrepentant individualists at war with techno-industrial society and all human progress.

With courage and determination we continue to practice new techniques in the application of the destructive arts, improving our methods of sabotage, attack and evasion. As we will stop at nothing, our attacks will erupt asymmetrically as we scurry from shadow to shadow and our fires will continue to spread across this entire filthy continent.

Our battle lines are drawn and we know where we stand; in complicity with the fierce anticivilizationists, eco-extremists, uncontrollables and pessimists who, burdened neither by hope nor fear, continue to return shameless, indiscriminate and decisive blows against the techno-hive.

“Towards the proliferation of attacks and coordination of groups and individualities to strike harder and constantly against the patriarchal civilization and its techno-industrial framework, the path is arduous and uncertain, only our actions in the present reveal our real convictions.”

Merciless annihilation is the only thing this putrid system, its representatives, its workers and its loyal citizens deserve!

Let the moral-judiciaries of every stripe continue to cry and whine! Let the talkers keep on talking!

On with the war!

– Wildfire Cell

PS. We were excited to hear that on the morning of 8/2/17 a bomb threat was declared to the students of the Education and Technology Center (BTZ) in Leipzig, causing the evacuation of 500 people from the premises, a large police and military response and a state of fear and panic amongst the disgusting progressivist students and teachers. Terrorist acts of this kind, especially ones directed against the techno-science institutions are somewhat rare in this particular geographical region and we welcome the spread of unrest and disorder inside “Fortress Europe”. The barbarians are already within the walls. We have always been here and we always will be.

Mexico City: Explosive attack against a Citibanamex branch by Night Cats & Evil Sorcerers Incendiary Cell FAI-FRI

Reasons to fight, we have plenty. We have taken into account the need to act directly against Capital, every time we find more reasons to continue fighting. A few weeks ago for example some comrades were accused of armed robbery in Aachen, Germany; and understanding the bureaucratic process of the ‘legitimate justice’ of the bourgeoisie, they were deprived of freedom. We must not forget, as has already been mentioned in these spaces of diffusion, that expropriation is a just, direct action and part of the history of every revolutionary movement. Emphasizing the slogan: “What crime is it to expropriate or set fire to a bank compared to founding it?”

The rage and anger have made us stronger. We can no longer afford to give ourselves the luxury of remaining in the passivity and conditional comfort that imprisons us in a ‘reality’ imposed by a group of murderers.

At dawn on February 2nd of this year, we concentrated our discontent inside a drum containing 8 liters of highly flammable material combined with explosive material and a simple detonator. We placed it right in the middle of two ATMs at the CitiBanamex branch located on the corner of Axis 10 South and Xocoyoacán street, causing total destruction to both machines with the money inside them burned. The branch will apparently be closed for several weeks.

Citigroup is the largest representation of disgusting imperialism. The banks, the sanctuaries of Capital. And us, the consequence of its disgusting system. Every day more conscious and connected to the struggle for freedom.

As for us, we stand in solidarity with the imprisoned compañeras in Germany and the compañeros Luis Fernando Sotelo and Fernando Bársenas.

Neither guilty nor innocent!
Prisoners of war, to the street!
Let the walls of the prisons burn!

Against the State, Capital and all forms of authority.

Bremen, Germany: Bundeswehr (Armed Forces) vehicle torched

G20: In Hamburg you say goodbye…in Bremen we do too!

“Everywhere – Soldiers are murderers
All over the world – Uniforms are murderers
German weapons – Soldiers are murderers
German money – Uniforms are murderers
Germany technology – Soldiers are murderers…”

(Tod und Mordschlag)

With this song in our ears and a portion of anger in our stomach we sneaked through the hedges at night with an incendiary device under our arms to reach the consulting office for a career with the Bundeswehr (German Armed Forces). We climbed the fence into the parking lot where we found a vehicle of the Bundeswehr. We quickly lit the device and placed it under the vehicle. Then we whistled with a smile on our lips and headed back into the night…

We are also support the ‘Anarchist call against the G20 summit in Hamburg’ and extend the target selection.

“We want to destroy, by July 2017 (and if only symbolically…) the rule of patriarchy over women, the rule of the states over their borders and urban centres, the rule of labor over our time, the rule of money over our social behavior, the domination of the goods about our lives, the rule of the cops over the fear of repression in our minds.”

25 chickens liberated (UK)

anonymous report:

“January, 2017

25 chickens were rescued from a poultry farm in the South East UK. The chicks, not older than 40 days, had endured extensive 22 hours of light per day to maximise growth. The night before they were transported to slaughter, 25 comrades were rescued and taken to safe homes. Slogans were painted in the inside of the shed, reading ‘THEY CAME, THEY SAW, THEY LIBERATED’ and ‘WE HAVE BEEN WATCHING YOU’.

We would like show our solidarity to Debbie through this action. She will be released from prison in April 2017.”

Germany: ‘In Spite Of Their Separation’ – call for action & solidarity from Rigaer94

We are writing to you from the threatened houseproject Rigaer 94 in one of Berlins once notorious squatting neighbourhoods. Our contexts might be worlds apart or really close but the reality we lived last year bears the prints of the same systematically oppressive system. In solidarity with all threatened projects, individuals and emancipatory struggles , we would like to better connect our structures and work on a closer link based on support, in our struggles.

Let’s keep walking this path together, but first a short summary of the recent past and our situation.

Last year saw us, the neighbourhood and people around, on the receiving end of much police repression, starting with the declaration by the state that our street and neighbourhood was a danger zone (Gefahrengebiet), giving the police extra search and detain powers and a green light for constant street harassment of anyone fitting their vision of a ‘leftist’, not white or somehow not normative person (this evolved into almost anyone being controlled, no matter how they presented).

This saw a massive rise in police riot vans cruising the streets, meaning constant conflicts for the neighbourhood, and in our efforts to fight for a autonomous and cop free area.

Rigaer 94 was at the centre of these conflicts, as the state and its cops declared it the crux of militant struggle.

This tactic can be seen in the wider context of reactionary imposed controls and intimidation, such as states of emergency and curfews, employed as constant stress factors (and data mining) to those against the aggressive progression of gentrification and public control.

In the beginning of the year, a traffic cop was confronted on the street while trying to give out parking tickets, seven hours later, 500 or more cops were used to raid our house.

Some days later we were raided again, this time after a bag of rubbish was thrown from a window, as cops were going through the nearby house dumpsters (this was a ‘life threatening attack’).
In response to these attacks, we made a call for 1 million euros of damage to the state and its structures to meet any attack on left radical spaces. This was consistently met.
The state was set on trying to destroy our structures and continued to put on pressure, but we never let them get on top of us.
The last attempt by them to crush our spirit was in the summer. A massive police operation was organised to evict the bottom story
(„Kadterschmiede“ bar andWorkshop) of our project. This plan was concocted by the police chief and the interior minister, who then approached the owner for the final ok.
The house was surrounded 24/7 by cops, who fenced off the front entrance and occupied the attic, stairways and yards. They protected private contractors who started a process of clearing and gutting the bottom story and attic. They were then helped by private security to control the coming and going of people from our house. The narrative given to the media was that the bottom story was going to be renovated and rented as housing for refugees. This was of course proven to be a lie and a divisive tactic by the state, who was trying to manipulate the public opinion and crush left struggle with some of its own pitfalls.
This occupation lasted three weeks.
(This is a more detailed text from the time)

In the summer we saw the occupation of our home and project come to an end from the combination of inspirational street actions and a court process. 

The court hearing concluded that the police action was ‘illegal’ and we had some sort of squatters rights to the contested areas of the house. Whether or not this action was ‘legal’ or ‘illegal’ in the eyes of the courts was and is of no concern to us, but in that moment it meant the state had to eat its own laws and go home.
Of course it would not let go so easily, and there has now been an appeal by the house owner to obtain an eviction order. In their legal way.
This court process will happens today,Thursday Febuary 2nd, and we do not expect to ‘win’.
Once the owner has this eviction paper, the earliest they could evict with due notice is two weeks after the court decision.If their first attempt fails they can theoretically try again at anytime in the future with no prior warning.

The solidarity in response to the past attacks on Rigaer 94 was incredibly powerful.

To read everyday of the actions that had happened in the night before, filled us with the strength and fire that we needed to continue this fight. The forms of resistance within the „Day X“concept were as diverse as the people showing it. The streets were full of action, but not only for us, as the struggle against gentrification is international and these and other actions have inspired and been inspired by movements from all over.

This is our strength against the repressive state and its structures – decentralized actions and autonomous organising that the state cannot even come close to keeping watered down and sated.

This is the pressure we can exert on the apparatus of capital and state.

Selforganized spaces such as Kadterschmiede in Rigaer 94 have to be defended!

We want to keep fighting not just for our housing project but for all those threatened by state violence and oppression- all those fighting for living spaces, all those sitting in prisons, all those fighting for their own autonomous futures, all those who are fighting just to live.

All evictions are Day X.

Day X will only bring us together again and strengthen and extend our networks of rebellion.

Day X means Chaos

Teilt unsere Wut!

Every heart is a revolutionary cell.
See you on the streets.
