On Monday, December 26, we set fire to 2 construction machines used at the construction site for the new metro line in May Day Square.
As soon as the time changed, we attacked the metro machines on Vikou Avenue in Galati. We realized that in the intense humidity in the air, there was a possibility of failure of the action. In any case, we decided to take the risk and the result was that 3 project machines were completely destroyed and probably some more were damaged, which was a positive thing for us.
What happened will in no way stop work on the metro, but it did result in 5 damaged machines which caused a good financial loss and sent a message of resistance. Perhaps our action caused a slight delay in the work process, but we will always prefer action to simply being a spectator to the absurd and sad reality.
It was easy to choose the target, not only for what it represents as a symbol but also for the practical use it contributes to the normalcy of cities. The subway, urban development works,bulldozers and other machinery are only an illustration of gentrification, progress, modernization, the destruction of nature and the imposition of the techno-industrial system.

Capitalism is voracious, our rage ferocious. Claim of the incendiary attack against four CAT machines, by the Informal Anarchist Conspiracy (Fivizzano, November 2022)
The Informal Anarchist Conspiracy is anarchist and informal, therefore without organisational programmes or leaders, the result of the free union of individuals moved by their own will and reciprocal felt need to strike at those responsible for the misery.
In November, one year after the burning of two vehicles at the Boccanaglia Alta quarry, the Informal Anarchist Conspiracy celebrated its birthday by doubling down on the avenging fire. Four CATs from the Walton quarry in Castelbaita (Fivizzano – MS) were completely burnt.
Unfortunately, apart from the birthday, there is little to celebrate. Tons of mountain pieces are taken away every year, with terrible consequences for nature in all its complexity. Also paying the price are the inhabitants who find themselves without drinking water or with floods that will continue to hit the area.
Marble mining is part of the capitalist system of exploitation, to the point of depletion of every cm of soil, water, subsoil and so-called resources. The extractive economy is directly linked to the wars that from Yemen to Ukraine fatten the bosses. Every single industrialist is responsible for climate change, as well as for the existence of borders and the thousands of people slaughtered in the Mediterranean and in lagers defending borders.
It is known that the bosses are hypocrites and fill their mouths with deceitful words. Big speeches about energy transition, emission reduction and other green masks are on the lips of politicians, bosses and phoney environmentalists. They propose and promise reconversion. They practice the destruction of this planet, the moon, the universe and everything. They talk a lot about alternative energies but never about alternatives to capitalism. Because according to them, this is the best of all possible worlds. We remind ourselves that exploitation and devastation is done on the skin of the many for the profit of a cowardly few.

We claim the sabotage carried out in the night of September 18 against the companies Áridos Bullileo and Asfaltos Maule, which belong to the Vega-Ruiz family. This family has accumulated its wealth at the cost of the destruction of the ecosystem and the precariousness of our lives. We solemnly declare that there is no such thing as innocent wealth, that anyone in possession of capital has gone through a path of abuse and prevarication, which makes them a target. We know that this family has a long list of abuses against its workers and against the ecosystem of the region; its participation in the destruction of the Achibueno River and its ecosystem is well known.
We denounce its complicity in the plundering of the environment, in all areas and in all corners of this territory called Chile.
The result of this action was the total destruction of :
3 truck mixers
2 hopper trucks
1 truck tractor
1 mobile sorting installation [the one in the picture above; NdAtt.]
To make a long story short, an amount of 800 million pesos [about 835,000 euros at today’s exchange rate; NdAtt.] of damage. Continue reading “Maule, Chile: Arson attack against the companies Áridos Bullileo and Asfaltos Maule”
