Extract from the judicial declaration of anarchist comrade Francisco Solar taking responsibility for sending explosive packages to the 54th station of the carabineros [Federal Police of Chile] and against the former Minister of the Interior, Rodrigo Hinzpeter in July 2019, action claimed by “Cómplices sediciosos/Fracción por la Venganza” [Seditious Accomplices/ Vengeance Faction] and for the double attack on the Tánica building on February 27, 2020, in the midst of the revolt, action claimed by “Afinidades Armadas en Revuelta” [Armed Affinities in Revolt].
(…) In November 2017, our idea was to move away from the big cities, mainly Santiago, because of its frenetic way of life, and to start a self-sustaining project. Although I opted for that way of life, I did not stop thinking that the most appropriate way to fight against an overpowering system based on authority and predation is through violent revolutionary action. Only from this is it possible to achieve moments of destabilization that, even if they are fleeting instants, reveal the vulnerability of power
In the middle of 2018 I decided to start pursuing that kind of action (…) Once I made that decision I started to think about some target, being clear that if I was going to take a great risk, the action had to be powerful. I thought of carrying out an action as a response, as revenge against people linked to repression and business power. Both criteria were fully met by Rodrigo Hinzpeter, who in 2019 was manager of the Quiñenco group, whose president is Andronico Luksc. Hinzpeter had also been Minister of the Interior under the first government of Piñera, leaving a trail of repression that will be difficult to forget. He harshly repressed social and student mobilizations, trying to pass a law marked by prohibitions of all kinds, known as the Hinzpeter Law. As Minister of the Interior he was politically responsible for the murder of young Manuel Gutiérrez, harshly repressed the social mobilizations in Aysén and Freirina, militarized the Mapuche territory, resulting in hundreds being wounded, many of them children, and countless prisoners.
During the early morning of Monday, December 27, 2021, a loud bang shakes the center of the capital. An explosive device detonates against a window of the National Directorate of Gendarmerie, located on Rosas Street at the height of Teatinos.
GOPE personnel quickly arrived at the scene, and the South Prosecutor’s Office, which handles this type of crime, was present, entrusting the OS-9 and Labocar personnel with the investigation. According to the press, it was the Prosecutor’s Office itself which indicated the prohibition to inform and give more information. No pamphlets were found at the site.
Via email, the action is claimed by “La Negra Venganza”, which according to the text would be the same group that acted against a police station in 2020. The text details the use of industrial explosives, as well as ammunition in the explosive device, making an open call to expand this type of practice, to show solidarity with the prisoners and to expand the use of their name, and finally to greet other action groups.
Campaign of attack and revenge against the executioners. Act II
Explosive attack to the National Directorate of Gendarmerie of Chile.
“In a highly self-critical manner, the solidarity actions that are undertaken are generally reactive. There are no actions that are rather offensive… We all know where the guys are, they are walking around in their uniforms, and they do it with total impunity. And we know that inside they are harassing the brothers and sisters, they are making them feel bad, they are humiliating them…”
One year after our first action, as the group that we are, and after much study, tensions, proposals and reflections, we are back. We are back, we continue with the campaign we started some time ago.
We will go in the early morning of December 27, 2021 a few minutes before the clock strikes 3:00 a.m. (The time and day are always proposed, so that the attack in its entirety reaches our targets-enemies) To the National Directorate of Gendarmerie of Chile. Located in Rosas street, downtown Santiago. Continue reading “Santiago, Chile: Explosive attack against the National Directorate of Gendarmerie + Claim of “The Black Vengeance””
In August 2018, two explosive devices, one of which will not work, are placed near the local of the Lega, in Villorba (in the suburbs of Treviso).
An action “against politicians, cops and their minions”.
Juan, our friend and companion, is accused of this attack and the Court of Treviso is trying him for “indiscriminate massacre”
The charge of indiscriminate and infamous massacre reveals the upside down world we live in. The one that has killed hundreds of people in the streets, in factories, in psychiatric hospitals and in prisons; the one that, for decades, has covered up for the bosses who have made workers die because of exposure to asbestos, or who have made entire populations fall ill because of the pollution of the air, of the fields, of the water ; the one that has prevented millions of people from leaving their homes, while forcing the elderly to die of Covid and loneliness, in RSAs; [, nursing homes] the one that plunders and bombs entire countries and then lets people fleeing misery and war sink into the Mediterranean or freeze in a forest; yes, specify him, His Majesty the Italian State, he accuses of indiscriminate massacre an anarchist, an enemy of all power and all oppression
Moreover, when a NATO general [Francesco Paolo Figliuolo, general of the Italian Army; since last March he is also Extraordinary Commissioner for the management of the emergency Covid-19] When a banker [Mario Draghi, current head of the Italian government, former bureaucrat at the Ministry of Economy, director of the Italian Central Bank and of the ECB, when the latter imposed “austerity” policies on Greece], already starving the Greek population, imposes passes in the name of “responsibility towards others”, we are clearly warned.
The violence that statesmen do to words is a reflection of the violence they do to human beings and to nature.
It seems that, for thousands of people, the bell is ringing now.
For Juan, it rang a long time ago, when he turned his heart into a time bomb, ready to explode against any injustice.
Now that the moment of his sentence is approaching, we feel even more the desire to show him our solidarity and closeness.
Because we have known his courage and his tenderness.
Because this is how it is done, between companions of an ideal.
Because the person who attacked the Lega’s office, no matter who it is, has given a contribution of humanity in a world more and more inhuman.
Because life is too short not to fill it with ardent dreams.
Claim for the explosion against the headquarters of the Bolivian Episcopal Conference (CEB)
Reproduced via Spanish from anarquiainfo, 28 November 2021
In the early hours of Wednesday 24 November, avoiding the numerous patrols in the area, and a few meters from a police car on guard, we placed and detonated a device against the entrance to the headquarters of the Bolivian Episcopal Conference (CEB), the highest authority of the Catholic Church in Bolivia.
This action speaks for itself. The aim was to damage the infrastructure of the CEB and send a clear message that the abuses of the Church will not go unchallenged. This is the only possible response to an institution that persists in torturing bodies to perpetuate its hypocritical morality.
Recently, once again, this institution forced an 11-year-old girl to give birth (1). They prolonged her rape pregnancy as long as they could. Every day that this child spent sequestered by the Bolivian archdiocese, under the duress of moral threats, is clearly a form of torture.

On 22 October, uniformed assassins of the DIAS, detect a stolen vehicle in the neighbourhoods of Piraeus and pursue it. At the same time that the vehicle is trapped and immobilized, surrounded by numerous and armored police forces, the cops raise their guns and shoot in cold blood with 38 bullets 18-year-old Nikos Sampanis. Typically brought into the arms of civil justice are 7 cops involved in the murder, who under the blessings and praise of the Minister of Uniformed Killers himself, Theodorikakos, are released. The operation is a complete success. Score – one dead for one stolen vehicle.
From propaganda to praxis
Justice is a revolutionary affair and comes like the Sword of Damocles on your heads. As a minimum first retaliation for the previously announced murder of Niko Sampani, we take responsibility for the explosive attacks with low-powered devices on the houses of two bounty hunters in uniform, Lefteris Gatos at 19 Graziou Street and Dimitrios Daggli at 45 Olympiad Street, in the early morning hours of November 15th in Thessaloniki. Our attacks took place a few hours after a new outrageous event came to light: the arrest of yet another uniformed man for indecent assault on his 4-year-old daughter. We had made it clear that nothing goes unanswered, let alone a murder. And while incidents of police brutality are increasing by the day, passive waiting is not one of our characteristics. We go on the offensive again by publicly stating that as of today the bounty list has 19 more unpunished scumbags (with no guarantee that the above two will not be re-targeted in the future).
To cut the laughter…
Last July, we proceeded to put a public bounty on 21 hired killers of the Greek Police, showing you a small but not insignificant sample of our own factionalism in the face of your impunity. And we saw the fear and terror in your eyes when you took Tsairidis from channel to channel crying and begging justice for protection. A few months later, our deeds complement our words. As long as you are unpunished, you are unprotected. History itself has shown that murderers and torturers will always meet the punishing hand of revolutionary violence, of true justice. That is why our attacks on the political descendants of the junta’s torturers, a few hours before the anniversary of the ’73 uprising, are a tribute to the memory of the dead of the Polytechnic.

When the enclaves of financial totalitarianism mortgage the lives of the proletarian grassroots to fill the coffers of the temples of capitalist barbarism, we have a duty to intervene. It is a matter of social conscience and sensitivity, class solidarity and revolutionary obligation that we too should not treat our lives as mere numbers in the bloodthirsty hands of the bosses. That is why we will remind the enemy that in this war, as long as there is injustice there will always be revolutionary retaliation.
The case of 52-year-old Konstantia Eleftheropoulou, which has seen the light of day in recent days, is unfortunately not the only one, however provocative it may be. She herself was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2017. Since then, she has been fighting for her life through non-stop treatments, reaching the point of stabilizing her condition. This year, however, after a relapse in her health, Konstantia needed to undergo intravenous brachytherapy, a specialized treatment that is not administered in a public hospital but only in a private clinic. Unemployed and uninsured like most of us, she was faced with the impossibility of accessing the treatment as the cost of the operation, including hospitalisation, exceeds €15,000 (perhaps the equivalent of a ministerial dinner). But Konstantia was not alone in facing her inability. Her public appeal for support and help found hundreds of people in solidarity at her side, who gave everything they could to help, so that one of us could survive collectively against the homicidal state mechanism that has made health a commodity, a class privilege and a luxury.
The case of Konstantia could be a small beacon of hope against the growing dystopia that statism wants to impose against the interests of the exploited. A small class victory of life in the face of generalised proletarian death. Because for us every life of our ally counts. But there are no words to describe the despicable turn in the state management of the case by the exploitative mechanisms. The tax office blocked Konstantia’s account, freezing solidarity contributions due to a previous unpaid balance, postponing indefinitely the start of her treatment. Those who have deliberately degenerated the public health system to line the pockets of every megalomaniac, who have made a profession of economic repression through administrative fines in every aspect of daily life, are deploying every weapon to neutralize the social base in the face of their profits. This will not go away. Filled with hatred and anger for the state’s negligence and the authoritarianism of the voracious state totalitarianism, we take responsibility for the arson attack with low-powered devices on the premises of the Fifth Tax Office in eastern Thessaloniki, in the early hours of 17 September. Konstantia and every Konstantia is not alone in the struggle for life and dignity. And this struggle is not a struggle of begging for crumbs but a relentless fight for the obvious. For we have no one but ourselves.
This is not the first time that social and class solidarity has been suppressed, as every step of support from below is always met with the deliberate bureaucratic negligence of a mechanism that prioritises profits over our lives. Let us recall the case of the 3-year-old Panagiotis Vassileli from Mytilene in 2001. Little Panayiotis was suffering from a rare form of leukaemia, which required his immediate transfer to New York to undergo surgery and treatment at a cost of over 130,000,000 drachmas. And while the amount had been raised through a huge effort of social and class mobilization, the National Bank blocked the account, citing a 1931 law that freezes the money unless a fund-raising committee is first established. The result of this development was the death of little Panagiotis who recoiled in the face of the bureaucratic apathy of the dictatorship of financial totalitarianism. Our attack on the Fifth Tax Office is a first warning in every direction: open Konstantia’s account immediately, before you gather your ashes in the face of yet another state murder. If Konstantia’s health suffers a new relapse, the sole responsibility this time will be the incurable disease of state totalitarianism. We have no illusions about the inflated promises of the political staff and the tearful statements of support from the media circles that wash away the image of state crime when a complaint sees the light of day. With faith and commitment to the forces of our own class, we are fighting this unequal struggle against all forms of exploitation and power. And if we die, we die with our heads held high and full of dignity. We send a special message of practical solidarity to Konstantia Zafeiropoulou: this battle is ours too, until the end, until victory.

It is difficult to start writing when my heart and mind are still in turmoil. The only thing I long for is a fraternal embrace, the sunlight and its warmth on my skin, and the only thing I have here is cement, cold, humidity and stench.
Perhaps it will be easier for me to leave by thanking: First of all my blood family who, far from all essentialism, have made me and my brother feel loved. Thank you for your sincere support. In 2nd place, to all the comrades and related who are “moving” outside, in some gesture of solidarity. In these moments everything helps and, as well as my family, thank you for your honest support.
Now, for those who wonder about it, I say: YES. Our prison is political. As political as any prisoners’ prison in this system. I would delve into more “theoretical” issues, but this is not the time.
I will only say that, if this prison were not political, then they would not have taken blood samples from us, against our will, under threat of “they would get them anyway”. If this presidium were not political, then fiskalia (slang for the GOPE, Special Police, like the FBI) would not worry about having copies of what we read and write… and they do. Patent of this is the raid of our computers and telephone, in which anything they find will serve them to weave their intrigues. If this prison were not political, then the fiskals of the south metropolitan would not have entered our house, with a huge media show and cameras, at the moment of our arrest. And finally, if this prison were not political, we would not have been part of Galli’s statements a few days ago.
Today more than ever we say: if we are not guilty, much less are we innocent.
The work of determining guilt, plunging the prisoners and their families into misery, belongs to the fiskalía. That is what they call “justice” in democracy. They in their homes, opulent, comfortable and with a “clean” conscience. We in the cages, without water, without light, far from all those who love us in any way.
Thanks to all those who move, a warm greeting to all the political prisoners of this world.
Freedom to all prisoners!

On May 11, at 9:00 p.m., unknown persons arrive on a bicycle at Pérez Valenzuela and Antonio Bellet, in the Providencia district, where a building of the SODEXO food concessionaire is located.
After leaving a suspicious package, they quickly escape, and a few minutes later there is a loud explosion that destroys part of the windows of the building.
GOPE, Labocar and the South Prosecutor’s Office arrived in the area to investigate the attack, which left no injuries, only material damage.
Claim of the “Revolutionary Cells Nicolás Neira”.
OUR COMMON MINIMUM: INSURRECTIONAL ACTION
Since March 22 different subversive and anarchist prisoners have been on hunger strike to demand the repeal of Legislative Decree 321, the freedom of comrade Marcelo Villarroel and the prisoners of the revolt. In this scenario of anti-prison struggle we point out:
1. During the night of Black May 11 and prior to the curfew we detonated an explosive device in front of the SODEXO company for its responsibility in the daily misery that tortures thousands of prisoners in the prisons of the Chilean democracy. SODEXO is in charge of the concession of the prisons of Antofagasta, Iquique, La Serena, Rancagua and El Manzano. The joint work between Gendarmeria, the Chilean State-Police and private capital make up a triad that evidences the lucrative business of the prison-companies, annihilating the dignity of the prison population according to their economic interests and the social order of the rich and powerful.
2. We affectionately salute the comrades who carried out a hunger strike for 50 days, demonstrating that the combative prison is a tool of resistance to prison submission, while spreading the germ of action in the streets. It is vital to maintain a rhythm of combat that accompanies the processes of intra-prison mobilization, understanding that the struggle for the liberation of our prisoners and their conditions of confinement is a long and relentless one.
3. In a context of police and military control the attack is possible, it only depends on our will and will to fight. In this sense, the discourse that all revolutionary action is assembly only affects the fighting spirit of those who organize and stand up with dignity against the enemy, devaluing a history of struggle that advances with hundreds of comrades imprisoned, wounded and dead. If we do not believe in our capacities the construction of a new world will only be a chimera, we call to organize the attack in all territories and realities.
4. In this Black May we remember our comrade Mauricio Morales who 12 years ago died in action trying to attack the Gendarmerie School. The memory is kept burning in the streets and in the multiform action, only those who forget die.
WE CELEBRATE THE OFFENSIVE AND SABOTAGE IN THE WALLMAPU!
WE SALUTE THE REVOLT IN THE COLOMBIAN TERRITORY!
TO RETAKE THE STREETS TO CRUSH THE ENEMY AND REFORMISM!
THIS WEEKEND TO VOTE IS TO VALIDATE THE PACT OF THE POLITICAL CLASS AND TO
TO BARGAIN ON THE SPILLED BLOOD!
By anarchy we will win, in autonomy we will live.

ACTION REPLACES TEARS
In the early morning of Sunday 18/7, we attacked, placing an incendiary device on the transformers of the transformer of the power substation of AGET, located inside the factory. We proceeded with this action, thus paying tribute to our comrade Vassilis Maggos, exactly one year after his death. We do not forget and will not forgive the perpetrators of his beating and torture. The AGET plant is a scourge for the city of Volos, condensing the rage of the institutions of power against the environment and the society of Volos. They are the moral perpetrators of last year’s events that led to the death of our comrade, and this will not be forgotten until we see the ashes and ruins of the factory. In this context, we have offered several litres of petrol and many flames to those who daily give cancer to an entire city. The system has concealed the action because it feels and is vulnerable, confirming to us that fear has begun to change sides. It is everyone’s business to take life into our own hands in militant terms.
Tears for Vassili will become their nightmares.
And even if we never win we will always fight!
