Aubenas, France – Incendiary attack on the Office National des Forêts [National Forestry Office] in Aubenas in the Ardèche, in the night of 5 to 6 October

I have learned that I don’t just love forests for their wealth of life, death and what’s in between, for what they are, that my repulsion for their fate isn’t just empathy but that my own possibilities are also restricted, controlled, rigged, destroyed. Then I remembered the acts of sabotage against the destruction of forests. Machinery vandalized, sawmills burned down, humans attacked. I remembered that I could act and not just go deaf and blind to protect myself. So I took part in an incendiary attack on the National Forestry Office, in Aubenas, in the night between 5th and 6th October.

Contribution from 3 anarchists

via Act for freedom now!

Germany, France: Contribution from the 3 anarchists for the event take a place in September 2020 in Marseille.

In September 2020 in Marseille we organized a discussion about the repressive case in Hambourg, that sees three anarchists accused of transporting inflammable materials and preparing different attacks. The arrest took place in July 2019, since then, two of them are imprisoned, while the third comrade has been granted a conditional release. Their trial began in January 2020 and should conclude early November 2020. The event that we organized not only aimed at exchanging information about the repressive operation, but was rather focused on retracing the path of struggle – the interventions, the perspectives, the projects, the publications – with which anarchists in Hambourg deepened social conflictuality over the last ten years. We asked these three comrades to write a contribution for this event, you find it hereunder.

Cavaillon, France – Attack on Saint-Gobain

Cavaillon (France): Stormy night 19/9/2020. We claim the attack on a research centre of the industrial group Saint-Gobain in Cavaillon. Saint-Gobain is a giant of French industry. Moreover, the group develops products for the defence sector and produces equipment for helicopters, fighter planes, submarines, warships, military vehicles…

A spark

Paris, France – A spark

In the night between 21st and 22nd September we set fire to a diplomat’s car in rue Roger Bacon, Paris. The reasons for this action seem clear to us: the path to freedom passes through the struggle against States and their servants. This little fire won’t change the world, some might say. That is true, but each action is a small spark that shines in the night and looks for a powder keg. Even more importantly, the decision to return the blows and fight the world and its horrors changes our lives here and now. This decision gives us moments of a life lived fully.

Gender and Classes

from incendo.noblogs.org

Incendo was a communist magazine and a group based in Avignon, in south-eastern France, active from 2007 to 2012. It published five issues of this journal and, at the end, a special « Gender and Classes » issue which included several articles on domestic work, the family or the French women liberation movement in the 1970’s. This first article, extracted from this issue, was presented as follows: “This text presents the current state of our reflections on the question of the relationship between genres genders and classes. It is also an attempt to synthesize the other articles and texts of this issue of Incendo. It therefore has nothing static or definitive and should be seen as a contribution to a necessary debate.”. Debate indeed there was. The paper version of this text circulated a lot in France in 2012, mainly in anarchist, ultra-left or autonomous circles, which triggered lively debate, much controversy, and resulted in responses being written. Here is the first English translation.

Paris, France: 2 incendiary attacks

Solidarity with our comrades in prison is something essential. And even if it is a constant practice, day after day, we like the idea of an international campaign to remember them. A solidarity that should be more than words, more than paint and testimonies. In the night between 24 and 25 August, in the Passage de Lagny, in Paris, we set fire to a van of the Eiffage company infamous for building prisons (and the huge open air prison: these increasingly guarded and inhuman cities).

Letter from Imprisoned Anarchist Comrade Carla

Salut!

After 536 days on the run, I was arrested on July 26th near Saint-Etienne. I experienced the arrest as the first performance of a scene repeated a thousand times in my head, or rather 536 times? Everything seemed to happen in slow motion: the hooded cops pointing their rifles at me, put me down and ask me the name that I’ve so often been called lately. It felt strange to pronounce it.

Against Advertising...Destruction

From Anarchists Worldwide

Saint-Herblain, France: Against Advertising, There is Only One Solution – Destruction

Against advertising, there is only one solution, destruction: 6 vehicles burned during a visit to JCDecaux in the night of 12 to 13 July 2020 in Saint-Herblain. It is unbearable to endure more advertising as much as the government propaganda displayed on these same billboards, this visual and environmental pollution should never have existed.

Rioting in France in Solidarity with Anti-Police Uprising in US

On Tuesday, June 2, a demonstration against police violence, which had been banned by the prefect of Paris, Didier Lallement, a few hours before, took place and brought together nearly 20,000 people before the High Court of the Porte de Clichy. Two hours after the start of this rally, echoing the current revolt movement in the United States, the noise of broken windows began to cover that of citizen slogans calling for justice. During wild demonstrations, the windows of a municipal police station, bank branches and supermarkets are smashed, construction machinery and electric scooters burnt down.

Stop living? Rather die!

France – Val d’Ouvèze (Ardèche):

Relay antenna attack

For several weeks now the whole population has been living in a state of exception in the form of health confinement with its dose of unheard-of prohibitions, daily hypocrisy and promises of salvation.

I didn’t want to die of fear or boredom, attached to a drip-feed in front of Netflix. Over the past month, the anger and consternation of experiencing a live bad science-fiction novel have become an antidote rather than a poison for me. So I decided to attack.

Incendiary attacks around Grenoble

Vacuum-sealed life or insubordination?

Every day of your life, your body says things. And your body can’t lie.

Do you hear the sound of engines, the hum of drones, helicopters…the flickering of neon lights, streetlights?
