Santiago, Chile: Truck Torched for Black December by Incendiaries Complicit in Sabotage FAI-FRI

Black December means action and memory, and, like any initiative of direct attack, it comes to life and continues when there is a will to go from words to deed – to break with the normality of the capitalist social routine and the comfort of civic life.

Always prepared for action, we liberate ourselves from the consumerist fever and the behavioral patterns imposed by the social order with its end of year traditions. And so, with planning, cunning and certain precautions, the anarchist attack never stops.

That’s why at dawn on December 28th we set fire to a truck in the city of Santiago, in a suburb of the so-called ‘middle class’. The action was reported by the media and now we can confirm: it wasn’t a short circuit, it was an intentional fire wrought by anarchic hands during the middle of the night in the streets of their disgusting city.

Setting fire to a truck is attacking the mega-machines and structures that contribute to the devastation of the Earth, it is setting fire to the ideas of progress and civilization, it is our contribution to the ongoing agitation against the IIRSA-COSIPLAN project and the construction of thousands of kilometers of roads that destroy eco-systems to facilitate the transit of trucks full of merchandise and accelerate the advance of the city that contaminates our life.

By burning a truck we also sent smoke signals of sabotage in solidarity with the Mapuche rebellion and their struggle for autonomy and territory. Because the blood of Camilo Catrillanca ignites the insurrection against our common enemy which is the State and capital.

We claim this action as part of the Informal Anarchist Federation, a tool for international communication between anti-authoritarians via direct attack, greeting with fire each cell and individual that seeks destructive action against civilization and technology, its structures and the people directly responsible for oppression.

With our action we embrace the comrades Juan Aliste, Marcelo Villaroel, Joaquin García and Sol Vergara; Facundo Jones Huala, the machi Celestino Cordova and all the peñis and lamgen who resist in the prisons and communities, to the comrades in Argentina who remain dignified inside and outside the prison following the recent repressive operation in November; Alfredo Cospito, Nicola Gai and all the comrades in prison and facing trials in Italy, to comrade Lisa in Spain; to Dinos Yagtzoglou, the comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, Angeliki Spyropoulous, and all the imprisoned comrades in Greece and to all those in the USA, France, Brazil, Indonesia, Germany, Spain, Russia and the entire world who continue to fight against all forms of domination.

Responsibility claim for hit-n-run attacks in Ilisia and Kolonaki

At the point that you realize that the “scum”, the suicidals and the killed ones of this world are the most alive, the most lively viberating figures of it, that’s also the point that you realize its construct of values and its structural violence. We ‘ve been destructed many times by the coldness in the eyes of the people around, we ‘ve been destroyed slowly and brutally while experiencing the everyday death. From the dead time of wage labour, the sucking of every livelyhood from the automization of production, the freezing passionless gazes towards pain, from the miserable survival, the screaming encountering of the unknown in the mirror, to our transformation into information quantums for modern biotechnology, to the psychological depression and the sadness that totally locks the windows of pleasure, of playing, of genuine social interraction. A whole authoritarian complex is created, reproducing death, reproducing the authority of economy, of the state, the patriarchy, the nation, reproducing the values of submission, of self-enclosure, of social elevation, of producing normativities and stigmas.

During the early hours of Tuesday 6th of November, we attacked by hit-n-run the Tahidromiko Tamieftirio of Eurobank, in Afxentiou street in Ilisia, destroying the cameras, breaking all of the windows and the ATM.

Also, during the early hours of Sunday 11th of November, we attacked by hit-n-run a jewelery shop in Kolonaki, at the corner of Skoufa and Massalias street, breaking the windows and the entrance of the store.

All these gems and golden jewelery that were not meant for any of us, got exposed to the night of the metropolitan center. They reminded us of the exposure we feel when we walk alone in the streets, they reminded us of the exposure that each one of us feels towards the social dos and don’ts. That is for all of you – fathers, bosses, pimps, greeks, and those of your people. We collected our pains, our suppressions, our angers, our whinings, our sex drive, and here we are ; we brushed out. If only the time was always so unimportant but at the same time extremely important as it was during the moment in which the windows of the bank were harmoniously and chaotically broken down. We synchronized the one for the other to steal back some seconds of life. Let’s take back our fun – even for a little bit – for those hands that were vigorously laid on us, for those stares that still hunt us, for those university desks and the labour-hours that suck us out, for these skirts that we would like to wear but we never dared to, for our perverted thoughts, for our awaiting desires, for our unexpressed values.

We repeatedly live in the day of the marmot, into the disgusting smell of the metropolitan gutter that sucks us in and throws us out as machines, as roles, as executions of those that were inflicted on us from the day we were born. And, according to ethical norms, we chose the total submission to the aggresive barkings of the dominants of this world. With some exceptions, the choices of whom were faced with supression, violence and death. As a point of renforcement of the anti-authoritarian struggle, we would like to mention some fallens of the social war, dedicating to them the upper lines and the present action. Not to honour them as holy totems, as untouchable memories, only as historical simeology, but as lively war hawlings, as detonators of social and personal doubt, as points of rising and expansion of insurrectional conciousness, as starting point of the creation and bonding of relations, and also as production of radical shapes and contents.

– Alexis Grigoropoulos, fell dead by a cop’s bullet in Exarchia, on the 6th of December 2008.

– Sebastian Oversluij, fell dead by security guard’s bullets during a robbery of a bank in Chile, on the 11th of December 2013.

– Zack Kostopoulos / Zackie Oh, lynched to death by a crowd of bosses, greek householders and cops, on the 21st of September 2018.

– Mikhail Zhlobitskiy, who ended his life in a bombing attack in the Secret Agencies of Russia (FSB), on the 31st of October 2018.

Ps: Comrade Dimitris, have a nice journey. You will live forever in our struggles.

Athens, Greece: Green Nemesis Act 3

“On October 28, we made a double hit in the area of ​​Zografou, burning a truck / refrigerator for meat transportation, with an incendiary mechanism. We also attacked a hunter’s car by breaking and burning gasoline in its interior. We also take responsibility for the Green Nemesis Act 3.
We indiscriminately attack what contributes to the incarceration, abuse and misery of animals. Whether this is a cosmetic showcase or a butcher, etc.

ANTHROPOCENTRISM

People from the very old age used the animals for their benefit. With the development of technology and its means, the exploitation of animals grew, while the value of life was undermined. Anthropocentrism is the one that leads millions of animals to death in order to become food, and not only. Workshops full of experimental animals. Also people still use animals for their own fun.

The attitude of the human species has made him think he is more important than nature and any other animal, constantly looking at how he can profit from the destruction, plundering, domestication and death of animals and land. In this value system, animals, at best, are objects of use and pleasure in the sense that they have complete control as if they were private property. That’s why we are not surprised when citizens, the media and society in general become outraged at the sight of a broken butcher shop or a burned car that belongs to a hunter while applauding themselves at festivals and celebrations where animals are systematically tortured, humilliated and killed for fun or very simple for ‘traditions’. With the same logic, they all do not care that the food that fills the supermarket refrigerators and shelves comes from an endless martyrdom of trapped animals in farms and factories, animals that are being fed with antibiotics and other drugs growing up in wretched conditions to get the desired weight and size in a minimum amount of time. We all see pets being sold in stores simply to meet the needs of some people to feel that they belong to them, or to please the impulsive desire by bringing them as babies as they fill the void of nonexistence and loneliness their. We also do not see any of these people going out of hand when others are poisoning, banging, stabbing, killing and torturing stray dogs and cats. For this, and for many other reasons, we still choose to attack those responsible and give them back a little taste, not only by burning property and structures, or by sabotaging consumer goods and commercial flow, but also, why not, by attack them too.

VEGANISM AND ANARCHY

Veganism itself is reformism and is not about either releasing animals or harming any industry. Antispecism, in our opinion, is part of the wider anarchy and anti-fascism that in the country where we live and act is not very understandable. Everyone who respects life and freedom knows very well what needs to be done and that’s why we are not here to point the finger to anyone. It’s a personal choice and nothing more. Veganism has now evolved through modern industry into a lifestyle culture that supposedly flushes the conscience, highly pacifist and only legitimate the economical damage. Millions of animals remain in the cages waiting for death, at best, in industries and farms that use Nazi tactics like in Auschwitz. All of this is simply a theory and when a theory can not go into practice it is nothing more than a ‘philosophy’. With Green Nemesis, we targeted products that have been produced with animals or owned by companies that exploit animals for the production of others, yet another criterion is that they are a basic necessity for the Christmas table. Through this action we do not have the illusion that we will close the companies or stop the animal suffering but we wanted to make a small financial loss to the giant companies.

THE STRUGGLE FOR TOTAL LIBERATION IS NOT CLASSIST

The encroachment and exploitation of animals is not only supported by industry and capitalism but also by ordinary people of every class – poor, workers, middle and rich –
That’s why we do not discriminate between big companies or small neighborhood shops as they are all part of the same system. With the same rage and will we will break a little butcher’s shop, and with the same anger and will we will burn the premises of a large company or put a bullet on the heads of those responsible for these ‘jobs’.
We support any form of attack with every consistency against those who torture and profit at the expense of animals in every way, and we are not only able to do material damage. We are also not only able to attack workplaces, shops, or means used to farm animals, but we support every form of attack on their homes and on any private property.

-We have been tired of ‘symbolic’ actions that are aimed at harming none or with sabotage without impact, or actions made to clean the consciousness and wearing the medal, as long as the culprits live a peaceful life without fear.

-We have been tired of activism and how much with the activist mindset that wants to be friendly to everyone without emotionally harming anyone, convincing everyone that he is just and saves animals and earth without anyone dirty his hands and risk his safety.

-We are tired now with the pacifist mindset and those who are freaked out with what we say and with what we do because we are promoting attacks on people by all means. Having a vegan lifestyle and propagating it will do something usefull? We know and we are sure that the exploitation of animals and the destruction of the environment will not stop, but at least we will return them a little from the martyrdom they cause. The only thing we are sure of is that we will not remain silent.

Madrid, Spain: Attack against a Bankia branch in solidarity with the compañera sentenced for bank robbery in Germany

On the night of June 7th, an explosive-incendiary device was placed in a branch of Bankia located in the Mirasierra colony of Madrid, disturbing the tranquillity of the upper-middle class people that reside there. This urban area is populated with chalets and mansions that are covered with CCTV and private security patrols, far from the misery that cements the standard of living of its inhabitants.

This action was carried out after we heard about the sentencing of our compañera for expropriations in Germany, we send her all the warmth of our fire.

We also frame our action in the context of the call-out against the G20 financial summit in Hamburg.

Tonight our anger and disgust also erupted at the impotence of daily life, with an attempt to escape the passivity and give back some of the violence that we live under. We are fed up with the comfort of programmed life and political activity, which is also programmed; We want to embrace with this act all those who have fallen in action and fight to the death against all that keeps us in passivity.

Let the solidarity between anarchists be more than just written words! For Anarchy!

Liège, Belgium: The Beauty of a Burning Police Station

We are not soldiers.
We are criminals.
We have no fatherland, no higher cause, we do not follow any directions other than those of ourselves.

On the other hand, we are fighting.
To find our lives, explore our freedoms.

We fight the misery of our lives, the oppression of morals, and the grids that imprison us.

On the night of April 18, we set fire to a police station in Liège (Belgium). It was completely destroyed, devastated by the flames.

We dedicate this action to the imprisoned comrades who are accused of bank robbery in Aachen.

Determination and courage!

Our thoughts are also with the Montreuil compa and Damien, still imprisoned in Fleury.
Never give up!

A greeting to all those who conspire.

With violence, love and joy.
Always at war.

“Don’t you have a light?” and friend.

Athens, Greece: Explosive attack against New Democracy politician Adonis Georgiades’s bookstore by CCF-FAI/IRF

Responsibility claim for the attack on Adonis Georgiades‘s bookstore.

On 3/15 we placed and detonated a clockwork explosive device at Adonis Georgiades’s bookstore at 263 Kifissias Av.

Adonis Georgiadis is a well known to all… picturesque, saturated and at the same time, a ridiculous political figure, who over the years moves within the (far)-right milieu according to his interests. Now an MP of New Democracy (the main right wing party) he does not miss any opportunity to propagate the neoliberal ideas whether in the parliament or in some television broadcast, being addicted to television as a TV persona. When not selling his nationalist noonsense (such as the books of Kostas Plevris – national-socialist figure) he makes “gifts” of 65 million euros to pharmaceutical companies who trade in human life. Specifically, Georgiades, as health minister in 2014, changed the pricing of drugs in favor of the pharmaceutical industries particularly favoring the Novartis company. Combined with the fact that his wife’s name featured in the Lagarde list, it’s proven that the TV booksalesman does not limit himself to book sales.

His rhetoric is always in convergence with the ideas of the party he belongs to each time, and often revolves around the issue of the repression of anarchists. He encourages and opens the way for intensification of repressive measures in all fields, from the diffuse street combative insurrectionary riots until further militarization of treating our imprisoned comrades (bringing back the high security prison cells – C Type, depriving prisoners of their permits etc.) This garbage knows -just like we do- that the anarchists of the deed are his enemies. He knows, as he said, that he fears those who are furiously fighting for freedom and dignity, those who destroy, with fire as an ally, all that he represents. He knows that the anarchists of the deed did not make a truce with their consciousness, concluding peace with the supposedly left government of SYRIZA as initially did a part of the anti-authoritarian milieu. Instead, we carried on on the path of continuous anarchist revolution demanding nothing less than everything. That’s why he’s afraid.

Such a populist could not be absent from the political agenda of New Democracy. His national-patriotic narrative finds its ground in a section of society offering him social acceptance, while maintaining the social consensus needed for him to continue advertising his nonsense. This specific TV booksalesman has chosen a clear position in the social war and makes his presence visible, since… being a cork helps him to float on the surface. N.D “invests” in its anti-anarchist campaign using A.Georgiades, M.Vorides, N.Dendias and the hidden reserve Ch.Athanasiou, as a vanguard. The names of these “crusaders” of anti-revolution are on the list of the new urban guerrilla.

To paraphrase the anti-anarchistic hysteria of ND, we agree that the distance between a sledgehammer and a Kalashnikov WHEN ACCOMPANIED BY REVOLUTIONARY CONSCIOUSNESS, is as long as the distance from insurrection to continuous revolution. This is the bet for every anarchist guerrilla group: the passage from insurrectionary anarchist violence to organized armed struggle against the tyrants of our life. A passage which sharpens the hazards of anarchist attacks, multiplying their aggressiveness and fierceness.

Recent anarchist attacks and acts of FAI and CCF are part of the underground prolonged battle against the world of power… And if the silence of the mass majority reminds one of a social cemetery, we know that the road to anarchy opens up by continuing and not by ending the hostilities against power. Because when we say anarchy it is not just a word, it is a way of life. We organise, we plan and we attack, filling the hours of the day with a perpetual dangerous anarchist activity not ever calming down. Thus, dead time becomes an ally in our rebel conspiracies. Because we‘re going to live life by daring and not by bowing to our oppressors.

Each attack is a promise to ourselves that “everything continues” and a signal to all imprisoned comrades that “nothing is over”. On March 24 three comrades in Chile are going on trial: Nataly Casanova, Juan Flores and Enrique Guzman, accused for the CCF Chile and other groups’ attacks. Our thought and our hearts are close to them knowing that we belong to the same generation, away from borders, nations and religions, with the unfulfilled feeling of freedom and rebellion that never ends as our only homeland…

PS: We will come back soon … MPOUMPOUKO we‘ll see you again …..

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!
