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.
FROM CHILE TO GREECE, WITH SEBASTIÁN OVERSLUIJ AND ALEXIS GRIGOROPOULOUS IN OUR MEMORIES
FOR THE MULTIPLICATION OF ATTACKS AGAINST POWER
FOR TOTAL LIBERATION

Milan, Italy : Meeting in solidarity with those on trial for ”operation Scripta Manent”

The first part of the trial for operation ”Scripta Manent’‘, for which seven comrades have been locked up in pre-trial detention for over two years, is due to end in the early months of 2019, with the first-grade sentence.
As he’s trying to sentence our comrades for subversive association with terrorist intent as well as for specific crimes, hangman Sparagna wants to put the last twenty years of the history of anarchy and anarchist solidarity on trial.
The hearings for the prosecutor’s final speech have been fixed for 22nd and 23rd January 2019, although these dates could be changed on 15th January.
We have decided to meet on 13th January at 2pm in Milan, at  L’Accerchiata, in order to discuss among comrades the modalities of our presence in court during the prosecutor’s final speech, so as to express our solidarity with those on trial and our anger and disgust towards all hangmen, judges and investigators.
13th January 2pm

Italy : ”Operation Panico” trial: report on the hearing of December 20

A hearing of the” operation Panico” trial took place today. The only accused present in court was Paska, and a few people of the public. Yesterday Paska was notified he had been assigned article 14bis for three months and went to court to discuss this with his lawyer. He asked a lawyer to tell us not to worry if we hadn’t come, it was impossible for him to let us know he’d in the court at such short notice.
With his lawyer, he decided not to ask for the annulment of article14bis; his detention now consists of remaining in the unit but in a single cell, without a gas stove or TV. A claim had been submitted for house arrest at his mother’s home in Martinsicuro, given the time he has already spent in prison and the fact that he had already been released and then re-arrested, so it’s not clear why a custodial measure is still being maintained. The judges will defer their decision until after they know the prosecutor’s opinion and will probably give an answer around December 27/28.
As concerns the issue of the admissibility of bugging interceptions, the judges will pronounce themselves later on, so for now nothing has been decided.

Germany : Hambi Chaos Christmas – Pump Station Torched!

It’s Christmas again and the little elves went out on the dark of the night to leave their presents to RWE and the police. It is warm tonight and we know who to blame. As the fire spreads and light us tonight we fight against climate change, the state that makes it possible, the system that needs it.
An incendiary device has been placed on a pumping station close to the Hambach Tagebau, willing to give to the forest back a bit of the water that coal mining it’s stealing. Because not just chainsaws are killing these trees.
Between the leaves of the forest the wind brings noises of glass breaking and stones crashing. There’ll be no night that we’ll let you sleep.
We still hating cops and secus, we’ll never forgive.
The Hambi Chaos Crew wishes you a merry crisis.

(Chile) Incendio de camión por un Diciembre Negro.

act for free received on: 28/12/18

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.

Bergerac, France: Fire against various institutions of the city Christmas Eve – Colombier Town Hall closed


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.

“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. “

Berlin, Germany: incendiary sabotage of a prison profiteer in solidarity with the accused of the Elbchaussee trial in Hamburg (Anti-G20)

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.

Basel, Switzerland: Flames Return for the War and Prison Profiteers

Extra, Extra, two cars burn!
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.
May this old world die!
Long live anarchy!

France : No filming!


[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.
Let’s leave our cameras at home.

In the darkness of Christmas Eve, we went out.
to express our discontent with the dominant relationships in
hanging banners all over Vorarlberg!

The political landscape and the general opinion of people are always more
threatening!

Why are you satisfied?

Why are not you angry?

We so!

We are not celebrating anything, let alone a Christmas of meditation.

As long as people drown in the Mediterranean, people will be
expelled to certain death, that sexist assholes will be at
power and that we will not be able to freely decide where we live,
who we love and how we spend our time, we do not always
are not free!

We are still being prosecuted by repression.

We are always oppressed by power relations.

Freedom for political prisoners!

Freedom for all!

Down borders!

Down with the capital!

For anarchy!

Genoa, Italy: Attack Against the Italian Institute of Technology by FAI-FRI Immediate Action Group

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.

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.

Argentina : About the recent repressive attack by the Argentinian State

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.

Canada : Tomorrow is far away: An anarchist intervention against the construction of the migrant prison in Laval

Anonymous submission to MTL Counter-info
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.
