ZURICH (Reuters) – An Italian anarchist group has claimed responsibility for the parcel bomb which injured two people in the offices of the Swiss nuclear lobby group on Thursday, the Swiss public prosecutor said Friday.
Public Prosecutor Carlo Bulletti told a media conference the offenders were from the same background as those responsible for an attempted attack on an IBM research center about a year ago, Swiss agency SDA reported on its website.
The so-called “Federazione Anarchica Informale” (“Informal Anarchist Federation”) also claimed responsibility for parcel bombs sent to the Swiss and Chilean embassies in Rome last year.
Two female employees of Swissnuclear were taken to hospital with superficial burns and hearing damage after the parcel bomb exploded Thursday.
Bulletti said the bomb was powerful, SDA reported.
Earlier this month, Switzerland suspended the approvals process for three new nuclear power stations so safety standards could be reviewed, after Japan’s earthquake and tsunami sparked a disaster at the Fukushima nuclear power plant.
Seattle: Banner Drop and Disruption in Solidarity with Greek Anarchist Simos Seisidis
Submitted by Anonymous on Wed, 03/30/2011 - 7:00pm
Below are photos from the action and the text from the flier. (Click the images for full-size.)
Freedom for Simos
If we attack banks, it is because we recognize money as a central cause of our misery.
In Seattle, as in Athens, many people live in poverty, under a daily misery where life becomes merely survival, as the bosses and banks rob us of our time and dignity. Police, courts and prisons exist for all those who dare to confront that misery. More and more people are persecuted, beaten or murdered at the hands of the police and the State. Prisons function to destroy passion, to serve as a warehouse of undesirables, to spread despair, to kill rebellious spirits; to execute, plain and simply.
But in the U.S., as in Greece, as everywhere, there are those who do not kneel down to this system of exploitation. There are those who put despair and fear behind them. Those who grab life. Those who take action. Today, March 30th, 2011, the trial begins for "the robbers in black" in Athens, Greece. It involves the January 2006 National Bank robbery in Central Athens, as well as six other bank robberies. It is the same case for which the anarchist Yiannis Dimitrakis was sentenced to twelve years of prison.
Today our comrade Simos Seisidis is in the place of the accused. He was on the run for four years, and when captured was shot in the back of the leg which led to its amputation. Regardless of the crimes he is being charged with, the endless struggle for freedom is the crime that he has always committed. We are deaf to their moralistic sentences. We hear instead loud and clear the cry of freedom and the strength of passion as they try to bend those who will never break.
Solidarity is our weapon! Death to the Greek State! Death to all States!
The Spectacle wished to make us appear dreadful. We intend to be much worse.

Tacoma: Two Wells Fargos Smashed in Solidarity with Greek Anarchist Simos Seisidis
"At night from Thursday 24th to Friday, March 25th, 2011 towards midnight, in Ablis in the region of Paris, we have burnt a truck and damaged a trailer. These trucks belonged to the company Propdesos which sells equipment for butcher's shop, delicatessen and to slaughterhouses. We attacked this company because it collaborates with the meat industry. Same if the company found replacement trucks the next day. We are not discouraged. We will fight for our ideas until the massacres of animals stop. Remember that meat industry disgrace us as human beings.
Act now and save lives. Sabotages, fires or liberations, we have to fight by whatever means for all the animals which suffer all around the world.
"Dans la nuit de jeudi 24 à vendredi 25 mars 2011 vers minuit, à Ablis dans la région de Paris, nous avons brulé un camion et une remorque d’un camion de 38 tonnes. Ces camions appartenaient à l’entreprise Propdesos qui vend du matériel de boucherie, charcuterie et à destination des abattoirs. Nous avons attaqué cette entreprise parce qu’elle collabore avec l’industrie de la viande. Mêmes si l’entreprise a trouvé des camions de substitutions dès lendemain, nous ne sommes pas découragés et nous irons jusqu’au bout de nos idées pour que cessent les massacres qui nous font honte d’être humain.
Agissez maintenant et sauvez des vies. Sabotages, incendies ou libérations, nous nous devons de luttez par n’importe quel moyens pour tous les animaux qui souffrent à travers le monde.
A message to Joey Houssain, owner of Outdoor Adventures. We know you didn't commit the actual murders yourself, but neither did Hitler and you ordered those dogs to be killed. We know you still have more animals and if we find out that one more innocent animal is harmed for your business the next visit will hit a bit closer to home, and by that we mean we know where you live.
In a country where our government not only ignores animal abusers, they reward them as with the case of the Whistler 100, it is time for Canadian citizens to take these issues into our own hands.
If not us, then who, if not now then when?

"From Africa to Latin America and from Asia to Europe and North America the hearths of resistance not only do not extinguish but continuously re-ignite. Whether this concerns movements and collective formations or more smaller in numbers, more individual courses of disputing the existing" G.Dimitrakis
We live in a time where everything is liquidized. If the previous years what they could offer us was the consumerist debilitation and social evolution, henceforth the only promise is that of a slow death. In the time where the economic crisis becomes more and more deep, more social parts radicalise and stand against the existing. The fight with all means against state and bosses has intensified. From the struggle of Keratea and Lefkimmi, the hunger strike of the 300 immigrants workers, the movement of "I don’t pay", the wild strike clashes in the centres of the metropolises, the sabotage to governmental and capitalistic targets, from arsons to the blowing up of entire structures of the regime by revolutionary organisations.
The state in its turn upgrades its arsenal legally as well as materially and technically having as a main target the extermination of the "internal enemy”. Because the appearance of water canons and the continuous military exercises to repress demonstrations couldn't impose order without new terrorlaws, without new "guillotines" to hang over the heads of the most militant part. The upgrade of demeaning via the media, does not function simply as a spreader of false news. It depoliticizes and presents as simple criminals political subjects, anarchists, revolutionaries and fighters. The cracking down of an internal enemy is of great importance precisely because it is the "dangerous" social-radical part, it is the part that is conscience of itself and fights modern totalitarianism. It’s the regulator of balance, the pledge for the existence and the continuity of capitalism itself. Here the antiterrorist force –the "pride" of the Greek Police- takes control... It creates profiles and it channels them via the press, it raises the secrecy of telephone discussions and transforms friendly relations into "terrorist organizations”. It goes onto the manufacturing of these, as in the case of Ch.Politis. Precisely because there are no margins. The system is ill and the political opponents must be exterminated, and this it makes very clear.
If henceforth for us there is a bet, this is the continuity of the strugle. And a part of this is our solidarity to the imprisoned fighters and political prisoners. If the choice of sabotage of structures of sovereignty is a ruptured and aggressive moment of the social-class war, solidarity is that qualitative relation that links the disparate parts that contribute to destabilisation itself, to the parts that -consciously or not- move against or many times aggressively to the capitalistic structure.
We claim responsibility for the arsons on Wednesday 02/03/11 in
-Eurobank on Ethnikis Antistaseos street in Kesariani
-Tax Offices in Holargos on Eleftherios Venizelos street
-Local offices New Democracy (opposition right wing party) Panagi Tsaldari street in Tavros area
We dedicate our actions to:
Christos Politis, who is imprisoned without any evidence because of his subversive action as well as to the 5 that are accused for the same case.
Aris Sirinidis who is tried on the 9th of March and whos trial will be the "pilot program" of use of DNA in political trials.
Solidarity to the Chilean comrades who are on hunger strike for the “bomb case”.

Saturday 19/3/11, 60-70 of us gathered outside the prisons in Stavraki in Ioannina as a token of solidarity to comrade Rami Syrianos. The people remained at the point for just over one hour, slogans were chanted while from the soundsystem that was set up .
the following text was read,
with which we wanted to make it clear to the administration of the hellhole in question, that the specific regime of political censorship that prevails there for three weeks now, will not pass this easy. For three weeks roughly the comrade receives a small part of the material that is mailed to him (political texts, leaflets, newspapers of the a/a movement, pamphlets, reports from indymedia but also other news sites, books) while the total of this printed material is kept each time from 2-3 days to one week for inspection.
THE TEXT THAT WAS READ:
“Last night just after midnight police station on Wollaton Road, Nottingham was attacked with glass jars filled with black paint. We send this loving kiss to Jock Palfreeman and all those who represented for the eternal struggle against domination on the streets of London this weekend.

“In the framework of acting around the mass anti-cuts demo of 26th March 2011, we attacked RBS in Bristol during the night of 24th March 2011.
The main RBS building by Bristol Temple Meads was attacked by an anarchist affinity group armed with stones and glass bottles filled with paint, breaking windows and damaging staff vehicles. RBS, which was bailed out by the government, recently paid 780 million pounds in staff bonuses for the last year, plus 7.7million pounds bonus to RBS boss Stephen Hester. The government makes its money back by clawing it from the people at the base through the implementation of austerity measures and increased living costs, people who are already pushed to their limit.
We have acted outside the dimension of the mass demo on 26th March to make the point that, although some of us also attended there with the mass of the people on the streets of London, it is certain that our attack, solidarity and struggle demand of us that we act as well in our everyday lives and not just in the moment of spectacle. If the struggle stays at a certain level (essentially lobbying for the abolition of this or that law, the granting of certain rights, the manipulation of state finance, attending an ‘event’ etc), then the struggle will remain at a grotesque and unsatisfactory citizenism, perfectly in step with capital.
This action is dedicated to all those trapped in debt and struggling against the capitalist system on these islands, and it is also for those resisting corporate onslaughts abroad. We especially refer to those fighting against the Canadian Tar Sands mining project that RBS is funding, and to the peasants and allies fighting in Kulon Progo, Indonesia, against a similar project to extract iron from their coastline sands. The peasants in Kulon Progo specifically requested and appreciate attacks such as the one made against RBS on 24th March. The Indonesian state is not known for its record in human, animal and ecological welfare. Indonesia likes to hide behind the image of pleasurable modern tourism for rich Europeans and their university back-packer sons and daughters armed with gap-year money, mobile phones and laptops, whilst the reality on the ground is very different. British arms companies and banks have helped and continue to facilitate murderous deeds and carnage there.
Finally, we will never forget about the prisoners of the social war in Greece, where a sporadically strong anti-capitalist/anti-authoritarian/anarchist struggle has been happening now for years; this is for Simos Seisidis, who has a trial on 30th March 2011. We keep him in our hearts as an unknown friend and to him we extend our hugs; this is also for those prisoners of the Revolutionary Struggle – Nikos, Pola, and Kostas; for all the prisoners of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, those who take responsibility and those who are accused; this is for ALL of the comrades there, and also ALL the dignified prisoners here in the UK who do not bow their heads, outside or inside the walls… In these times if you don’t begin fighting, you are truly lost and deserve the contempt our enemies receive.”

Anarchists solidarity protest outside Korydallos prison, the main prison in Athens, at the time of the change of the year. This protest happens every New Year's Eve for the past six years. This year more than 400 people took part in the protest that interacted with the prisoners inside through shouting mutual slogans and fireworks. The main slogan was "The passion for freedom is stronger that your prisons".
A society that punishes/the condition of incarceration/the prison of the mind/the prison as punishment/the rage of the damned will sound on the ruins of prisons/those denying obedience and misery of our era even within its hellholes/will dance together on the ruins of every last prison/with the flame of rebellion avenging whatever creates prisons.
To the prisoners struggle already counting one dead and thousands in hunger strike across greece, we stand in solidarity and anger until the destruction of every last prison.
