in memory of anarchist compañero Sebastián Oversluij

On December 11, 2013 anarchist compañero Sebastián Oversluij was shot dead by a security guard while attempting to rob a bank branch in Chile.

Today we decided to attack with explosive devices a Santander Bank branch and a PRODECON* office (belonging to the Secretary of Finance) in Oaxaca.

Remembering three years since this event not to make him a martyr nor to victimize his death but in the name of all illegal and clandestine actions that arise, have arisen and will arise within this war.

The situation: our world, the only home we will ever have, is being hurled into the abyss by imbeciles and nihilists. A 72-degree Christmas and a Trump presidency; lynching and deportation of our neighbors by police and ICE; pipelines desecrate the dead, while poisoning the living; billions of selfies, while 200 species go extinct every day; the feeling of powerlessness enforced by governments everywhere and the management of each detail down to the smallest part of our hearts: everything calls for this to end.

On Saturday night, the snow-swept statue of the revolutionary Emiliano Zapata on Lake Street in Minneapolis was cast in the light of emergency flares and surrounded by a black-clad crew, as anarchists held a memorial observation for our comrades fallen in recent weeks.

We gathered to mourn three tragedies—the death of Michael Israel and other freedom fighters in Rojava, the murder of Guilherme Irish by his nationalist father in Brazil, and the dozens of dead friends lost in Oakland’s Ghost Ship fire.

The classic anarchist tenets were mutual aid, rejection of church and state and capitalism, solidarity, voluntary association, decentralization, and autonomy. (I might be missing a couple...)
More recently, anarchists have espoused principles like transparency, consistency between means-and-ends, and a DIY ethic.

From Contralínea By Zósimo Camacho on October 16th, 2016

In México there is an ongoing anarchist insurrection, with 50 groups and cells at war with the State and capital. The seriousness of the "black threat" has caused the National Risk Agenda [1] to give it priority attention, ahead of the red guerrillas[2], with only drug trafficking and social uprisings given a higher priority.

In demonstrations across the United States, protestors have raised signs saying, “Not My President!” Obviously they are not denying that state machinery has given Donald J. Trump the position of head of state and commander-in-chief of the armed forces, ruler of the mightiest and wealthiest state in the world. What they are denying is Trump’s legitimacy for the position, his moral right to claim the presidency.

Historical information about anarchist black cross is pretty limited. However, according to Rudolph Rocker (cashier of the London anarchist black cross), anarchist black cross (also known as anarchist red cross (arc) was founded between 1900 and 1905. It is possible that these dates are not very precise. According to Harry Weinstein, one of the two founders of the organization, it started after his arrest during July or August 1906. As soon as he was released, Weinstein, together with others, offered clothes to anarchists that had been sentenced to exile in Siberia.
