Diciembre Negro significa memoria y acción y, como toda iniciativa de
ataque directo, cobra vida y continuidad cuando hay voluntades que pasan
de las palabras a los hechos para romper con la normalidad de la rutina
social capitalista y con la comodidad de la vida ciudadana.
Siempre dispuestxs a la acción, nos liberamos de la fiebre consumista y
de las pautas de comportamiento impuestas por el orden social y sus
tradiciones de fin de año, así, con planificación, astucia y ciertas
precauciones el ataque anarquista no se detiene.
Por eso la madrugada del 28 de diciembre prendimos fuego a un camión en
la ciudad de Santiago, en una comuna de la llamada “clase media”. El
hecho fue reportado por la prensa y ahora les confirmamos: no fue un
cortocircuito, fue un incendio intencional forjado por manos anárquicas
en medio de la noche entre las calles de su asquerosa ciudad.
Incendiar un camión es atacar las mega-máquinas y estructuras que
contribuyen a la devastación de la Tierra, es prender fuego a la idea de
progreso y civilización, es nuestra contribución a la agitación contra
el proyecto IIRSA-COSIPLAN y la construcción de miles de kilómetros de
carreteras que destruyen eco-sistemas para facilitar el tránsito de
camiones llenos de mercancías y acelerar el avance de la urbe que
contamina nuestra vida.
Leftist school teacher Nikos Temponeras was murdered in 1991 by secretary of the youth branch of the New Democracy right-wing party. The killing caused civil unrest in several Greek towns. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kDqTo3ejuNQ
The town hall of Colombier south of Monbazillac in Bergerac will stay closed for at least a week. The walls of the building are covered in soot following a fire. On the night of Sunday the 23rd, Monday, December 24, one or more individuals set fire to the letter box on the town hall door. The fire did not spread but it created a lot of smoke and the town hall cannot reopened in that state.
“There is soot everywhere, in the council room, the town hall and a little in the kindergarten classroom that is contiguous to the council boardroom. Not to mention the smell. “
That same night, two other suspicious fires were started in La Force, on the other side of Bergerac. A first in front of a technical room belonging to the agglomeration Community of Bergerac and a second in front of the public services house. The damage was limited.
Columns of smoke escaping from the roofs of the rich district of Elbchaussee, helicopters turning in the sky. By far, that was what let some early-bird residents guess that something was going on, perhaps beyond the statements of the riot police and secret services. A crowd of hooded people
pursued their goal of publicizing their vision of things, destroying both in a targeted and blind manner a tiny part of this world of prosperity.
A wonderful sign. A street of cars in flames, souls completely helpless absolutely not wanting to understand why they had just been the victim of this useless violence. We have a great mark of respect for the risk that people had been ready to take.
After all, it already seemed to appear on the radar of all the intelligence services, before the summit, that the limits of the city were going to be surpassed. A moment of offensive demonstration, whose character has only rarely been achieved in this country.
It weaves through the ages like a black thread, insurrectional violence against all the different types and tendencies of domination.
In spite of all the attempts at integration, all the repression and all the apparent despair, the passion for freedom continues to burn to this day.
On the night of Saturday to Sunday, December 16th, these flames spread to two vehicles. On the one hand a Siemens company car. Throughout its history – from its active participation in National Socialism, right through to its manufacturing of equipment for war and surveillance and to its development of so-called ‘smart’ technologies – this company has always been in the sights of the insurgents. Technological progress is not a neutral process, it is the next step in the history of capitalist expropriation. On the other hand, a van belonging to the Implenia manufacturing company, a company that has enriched itself by building prisons, detention camps and other temples of repression.
[Here is a short leaflet that has lost none of its relevance if one carefully observes recent demonstrations and the way riots are put on show and self-described, often by their
protagonists themselves. It was found at a demonstration in Paris on 15 February 2017 and published on various anarchist sites at the time]
Let’s not film!
Because even if nothing is happening for now, we hope that it’s going to explode later!
Because we risk making a friend swing!
Because we don’t take part in the action!
Because we accumulate evidence against ourselves!
Because if we get lifted, we won’t have time to erase them and anyway the cops find videos even if erased!
Because if we want to respond to or prevent the violence of the cops, let’s go,
Because it is not an ephemeral and media recognition that will change this crappy world, on the contrary, it endorses the spectacle.
Let’s not let the enemy decide to take or use our images. Luck is never on our side.
Sunday, December 23, around 18 hours, the Gard firefighters are
intervened for a fire on the path of the Pont de la Roque which runs along
the A9 motorway, municipality of Bernis.
Three vehicles and eleven people were mobilized for one hour and
half to control the flames that literally ignited a
Orange telephone relay antenna. Firefighters used an arm
elevator to extinguish the fire.
The circumstances and the origin of the incident are unknown for the moment. The
Relay antenna power cables have, themselves, been very severely

In the early hours of December 24th, we attacked the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT).*
24 hour surveillance at reception and private security patrol cars were not a good deterrent, we were determined to attack you and we succeeded!
The IIT is a foundation for technological development and national policies in favor of science and technology and is a flagship of the Italian State. It works to strengthen the markets and the policies of looting and devastation that are committed every day by capital and governments.
They carry out studies in neuroscience, ‘brain technologies’ and genetic research for the manipulation of life forms. They are also active in nanotechnology, conducting research into nanomaterials and their use, as well as the development of materials for converting and storing energy, which today’s production system needs in huge quantities in order to maintain the speed of the mad rush of progress.
In addition to the iCub, in the field of robotics and artificial intelligence, they are perfecting robots for industrial production.
At the service of capital and the police state that guarantees it, they are involved in the creation of ‘computer vision’ systems that are useful for identification and social control.
In line with the above, in computational science research, they are intensifying the study of ‘big data’, creating programs and structures for these vast databases of video, audio and images that are necessary for the techno-industrial society. These algorithms produce the wealth of the huge lobbies that dominate the capitalist world because they are applied to computer science, AI, biotechnology, the war industry and military research; they realize exponential possibilities for this deadly order of exploitation and domination, of looting the territories for the resources paid with the blood that flows in the Mediterranean and that of all the exploited.
From two local newspapers it is understood that following Salvini’s circular, the prefect summoned the Committee for Order and Security in order to discuss the illegal occupation of public buildings, and that Janara Squat and CSA Depistaggio (plus a third building) were identified as places to be evicted by Christmas. Today, Thursday 29, a first meeting will be held at Janara Squat at 8pm to start a mobilization and oppose and resist evictions. We invite all who can to come and see us for this appointment and the following ones. Updates will follow.
Complicit solidarity greetings to the new occupation in Lecco.
In the night of 30th November at 8pm, as the neighbourhood of Sant Andreu (Barcelona) was in the middle of a celebration and patrols were going around, a cash machine of Deutsche Bank was happily burning.
A piece of writing, ‘prisoners of war’.
An individual action.
Coherent consequence of my anarchist orientation.
Let the flames lighten up my comrades’ nights, even if only with a simple smile.
To the prisoners of war in the Spanish peninsula. Onwards, comrades!
To the Italians persecuted in the operations panico and scripta manent.
To Paska, a comrade on hunger strike since 5th November. Strength to you, comrade!
To Anahi, in coma following an attack in Argentina. Resist, comrade!
To Hugo and Marcos, rebels and avengers. Onwards!
To Juan Aliste. Irreducible!
To the Greek and Chilean warriors.
To Lisa, I’m waiting for you with a complicit smile.
To all the coherent and consequent individuals. Let’s continue the struggle!
On 14th November two specific events occurred in the city of Buenos Aires, which raised media interest and a prompt police/judiciary response.
In the afternoon, at the Recoleta cemetery, more precisely by a tombstone dedicated to colonel Ramon Falcon (who was executed by comrade Simón Radowitzky), a bomb explodes and comrade Anahi Salcedo is injured; she is taken to the Fernandez hospital, where she is being held in custody, with injures to her face and skull, having lost three fingers of one hand and been put in an induced coma. Comrade Hugo Rodriguez was arrested at the same place.
A few hours later, a bomb was thrown at the house of Federal Judge Claudio Bonadi (notorious for his iron and fist attitude, with a memorable past in the iron guard youth, a Peronist fascist group, and his current hostile and repressive practices and discourses against sectors and individuals opposed to the current order). Comrade Marcos Viola was arrested and accused of throwing another explosive device at the judge’s car.
Citizenship can only exist and be valued if there is also a category of others, those without status. For this distinction to exist, it must be enforced by the state, which has a number of tools to do so.
Deportation is one such tool. Deportation is a violent process in which the state removes all agency from an individual in order to exclude them from the territory over which it asserts its authority. To accomplish this task, the state uses different tactics, one of which is detention centers or migrant prisons. Migrant prisons are used as holding centers prior to deportation. People without status can be arrested and imprisoned while they wait to be flown out of the country, sometimes to far-away lands that they have no relationship to.
The state has been deporting more people in recent years and is currently expanding its capacity to do so. Hiring more Canadian Border Service Agency (CBSA) personnel, finding various ways to monitor undocumented folks, and building new detention centers are ways the state is increasing its ability to effectively deport people. In Laval, a city on Montreal’s north shore, the government wants to build a so-called “more humane” detention center next to a detention center that already exists.
Noon of the 21st of September 2018, Omonia, Di Angelo jewelery shop, Gladstonos 2 street. A crowd of reputable citizens with Evaggelos Dimopoulos (owner of the jewelery shop), Dimitris Hortarias (owner of a nearby real-estate agency and press representative of the National Front), and snitches from DIAS police forces as front-men, murders. And it murders a person armed with knife or with a piece of glass. It murders a “thief”, a “robber”, an “expropriator”. It murders a “drug-addict”, one of the “filthy” people of this world. This person, trapped in the jewelery shop, tries to get out from the glass partition. That “scared” crowd is waiting for this person there, with the afore-mentioned front-men lynching it over the broken glasses until death. The cops came to finish off the issue with their glops. They give orders and put handcuffs to its unconscious body. Its death has already been found out during its transportation to the hospital.
no name, no life…
A primary narrative is produced on the face of the unknown -until then- person. Journalists and the media extrapolated the conclusion: Robber. Drug-addict. Armed and dangerous. What the stakes are? The property, the bourgeois normativity, the purity and the physical integrity of the greek house-holder, the defense of all the afore-mentioned on any cost. Thus, from the one hand the profile of a social otherness is created, and from the other hand there is an attempt of covering up and ing the “self-defence” and the “self-redress” of the murderers.
The murdered is named “offender”, and the broken glasses “weapons” on his hands. The tragic irony of the case: The only blood that fell on the pavement was his blood, the blood of the “offender”, of the “armed”, of the “dangerous”. From the other hand the murderers -in other words the bosses and the cops- trouble-freely raise the bloody glasses from the floor and give cold-blooded statements to the sensation-hungry TV panels. Actually, according to them, nothing special happened, or -even better- “it happened what was needed to happen”. They know that the death of a “drug-addict who went to steal” isn’t considered as death in the conscience of a majority part of the greek society, as his life by itself isn’t considered as life. The phrase “I would do the same”, literally became the corpse in the mouth of all those who chose to morally launder the murderers.
The capitalistic fragmentation, the rampant individualization and the cynicism outlined in detail the barbarity of the times in which we live/survive.
It is not “fresh news” that anti-migration policies promote death and despair, the very devaluation of human life and dignity. However, the war against migrants is becoming deadlier and deadlier, trying new methods to terrify, discipline and subordinate the migrants. Because what awaits those who a. do not drown from crossing the sea or the land border, b. are not detained in detention centers or police stations, c. do not die from car accidents when the police chases them down, is homelessness or the already overloaded “open camps”, and in order to stay there they have to be totally obedient and invisible.
More than 28 dead bodies have been found at the river of Evros during this year, at the border of Greece with Turkey. Τhe number of actual deaths cannot be calculated since most of the dead bodies disappear at the bottom of the river and are never found. 4 deaths have been also reported of people walking by the train railways. And let’s not forget the shipwrecks in the Mediterranean killing more than 1890 people this year, nor the EU-Turkey deal that has sent to Turkey hundreds of people without even examining their asylum case.
Besides deaths at border crossing, more and more migrants are dying in car crashes the highway of Greece that connects Evros with Thessaloniki. During the last 11 months at least 5 car accidents have happened, killing 26 migrants. In all the cases the police was chasing down the car carrying the migrants and even in some cases the police was shooting against the car with the migrants, ending up in horrible car accidents.
At the same time, hundreds of migrants arrive in the city of Thessaloniki and remain homeless, with the government’s only concern not to molest the city with their presence. So they try to send as many as possible to overloaded open camps, under dehumanizing conditions. And those who rebel against those conditions are dealt as dangerous for the social order, penalized and persecuted.
On August 22, 2018, there were riots inside the police detention center of Metagogon, just outside of Thessaloniki. The police accused 3 migrants for inciting the riot. The court took place on the 3rd of September and they got 6 YEARS! During the trial, both the police and the court were provocative, the judges and the prosecutor were saying that “not even they come into our country, but they dare to rebel against imprisonment. they come, we welcome them, but they cannot stand some months of prison” and things like that. The case will be re-examined in about one year from now, and the migrants will be in prison until then.
This is just an example of numerous other cases, where migrants get the highest of penalties just because they are migrants

by actforfreedom Comments Off on Toulouse, France : In the face of repression, immediate response!
On 19th November 2018 the court of appeal San Miguel decided to reject the annulment of the sentence and trial of anarchist comrade Joaquin Garcia Chanks.
In view of this, the 13-year sentence against the comrade has been confirmed after he was accused of placing an explosive device at the 12th police station and of carrying a gun. This has become one of the longest sentences of this kind. As the police continue to operate their raids of blood, torture and death, let’s not remain indifferent towards those who are in prison and are accused of having attacked them [the police].
All our support and insurrectional solidarity go to comrade Joaquin Garcia!
It won’t be years [in prison] or sentences that will make us step back even of a millimetre in the struggle against authority.
For the liberation of all the prisoners of social war and for the destruction of all prisons!
