Today, Monday May 21st at around 1 AM, we attacked the Santander Bank located on Parana street between Tucuman and Viamonte. For this we made use of 2 liters of flammable liquid plus 4 butane gas canisters and an ignition mechanism. The fire completely destroyed the front part of the bank, leaving the 4 ATMs that were there unusable, as well as busting out several windows. We mark this action as an action remembrance of the warrior Mauricio Morales, fallen 3 years ago from the explosion of his own bomb destined to the prison guard school in Chile. And with care for Luciano “Tortuga” Pitronello, wounded after the attack on a Santander Bank last year, now imprisoned. This is how we understand solidarity, stopping here where a comrade “fell,” in order to radicalize and deepen our practices.
The society in which we live intends to condemn us to misery, to alienation, to stupid consumption and docility. We as combatant individuals deny all of this, we reject and attack its symbols and its capitalist, policial, patriarchal, religious and ideological values. We go on the offensive with conviction as our primary weapon. We do not illusion ourselves with “hope” of some change in the people, the people that does not react even when a loved one of theirs is locked up in the prisons or asylums of the Argentine State, the people that do not react even when they are evicted from their homes and have to sleep in the street with their children, the people who have lost all dignity before the dream of a bourgeois life that the mass media of communication offer them. We do not waste our time on raising the consciousness of the masses nor discourses like that, we choose for ourselves the rebel, illegal, delinquent life. And we have imprisoned comrades in this war who we want to name. Eat and Billy, brothers of the FAI, recently sentenced to 1 year 8 months for the attack on a bank; all the comrades of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, who maintain with pride their anarchist values in spite of the constant attempts to diminish their morale such as the recent transfer and punishment of the comrade Olga; Freddy, Marcelo and Juan, dignified prisoners in the Chilean prisons, after being expelled by the wretched Argentine government; the recently arrested Carla and Ivan; and so many others who we carry within ourselves, day after day, night after night, who give us strength and another reason to keep fighting.
An autonomous subversion, in the form of anarchist guerrilla, is expanding through the most remote places of the earth, from Bolivia to England, from Italy to Chile, from Indonesia to Mexico… with weapons, with explosives, with fire, but above all with values and dignified conscience. And that is what they will never be able to stop.
