In solidarity with the events in Rojava, graffiti was painted in Kiev. The activists wanted to express their support for all those who are currently fighting against Turkish state fascism and to draw people’s attention to the events in Rojava.
Santiago, Chile, 18.10.2019: The city in flames because of the rise of public transport fares! Burn the paradise of capitalism in South America! Hours of clashes between police and demonstrators, hundreds of looted businesses, 20 subway stations and 16 buses torched, the building of the electricity company Enel on fire (who also raised their fares). An historic and beautiful day of revolt without leaders, political parties or leaders, Chile’s president declares a state of emergency and orders the military onto the streets.
And you, which side of the turnstile are you on?
Continue the WEEK OF AGITATION, EVASION AND SABOTAGE!
Santiago, Chile, October 19th, 2019.
2nd Day of Social Revolt
Despite the presence of the military in the streets, thousands of demonstrators stand in front of the tanks and uniforms. The city is still paralyzed, from above you can see numerous sources of fires and explosions. The schools and universities suspend their classes for the next week.
Despite the state of emergency, there were hundreds of lootings, 78 subways stations, trains, toll booths and an indeterminate number of buses torched.
In the streets you can see the smile on the faces of all those who protest, dancing to the rhythm of the barricades and enjoying the chaos, the solidarity between them and the self-organization without bosses or leaders. Many have waited for this moment all their lives and they are not wasting it.
The protests have spread to other cities, the accumulated rage exploding with uncontrollable violence.
A curfew is decreed from 22:00PM to 07:00AM.
And you, which side of the turnstile are you on?
THIS IS OUR MOMENT! IF NOT US, THEN WHO? IF NOT NOW, WHEN?
THE STREETS BELONG TO THE REBELS!
Comrade Tamara Sol Farías Vergara was released on “parole”, leaving prison on Wednesday (October 16th) and, thus, reunited with her family, friends and comrades (see photo).
A lot of joy came with this information, as the comrade had been incarcerated since January 21, 2014. Soon we will be updating and providing more information about Sol.
Solidarity does not end when our comrades leave prison.
Long live Anarchy.
Şehit Çiyager – Şehit Zeryan Vengeance Unit stated: “In the actions we carried out against the genocidal invasion of Rojava by the occupying, fascist Turkish State, a factory warehouse and a power plant in the Uzundere neighborhood were destroyed as a result of our sabotage actions.”
Şehit Çiyager – Şehit Zeryan Vengeance Unit’s claim of responsibility is as follows:
“Şehit Çiyager – Şehit Zeryan Vengeance Unit members carried out two successful attacks on the evening of October 16th in the Karabağlar district of İzmir within the scope of our ongoing self-defense actions.
The actions we carry out flow like water.
On the evening of October 16th, we carried out a sabotage action at the warehouse of a factory owned by an AKP fascist in the Peker neighbourhood of the Karabağlar district of İzmir. As a result of our action, the warehouse of the factory belonging to this AKP fascist was completely destroyed and there was great material damage. Again on the evening of October 16, the electrical transformer in Uzundere district of Karabağlar district of İzmir was torched and destroyed by our members. ”

A new urban guerrilla group in Turkey, the Children of Fire Initiative, formed to fight against the Turkish State and in defense of the Rojava Revolution, have claimed responsibility for arson attacks against factories in Karabük Province and İstanbul.
The actions claimed by the Children of Fire Initiative are as follows:
“On the evening of October 16th, we carried out an arson action against the Yenice Forest Products Industry Factory in the Yenice district of Karabük Province. As a result of our action, huge explosions took place inside the factory and it burned to the ground. Also on the evening of October 16th, a workshop was torched and destroyed as a result of an arson attack we carried out against a furniture factory in the Ümraniye district of İstanbul.”

It’s a classic, it’s a must-know thing!
On the night of 16 to 17 October 2019, the Toyota Prius car of the patrol police was burned to the ground. It happened at the guarded parking lot in Svyatoshinsky district of Kyiv. We, anarchists, take responsibility for the arson and will publish an exclusive video where you can see how the police car burns.
Why are we at war with the police bastards?
Today, our lives are under the iron control of the state and corporations. No one asks us whether we want it or not. The authorities do what they think is right. For them, we are a commodity, cattle and lowlifes. Everyone who wants to oppose this way of life is expected to face repression, death. But control and repression would not be possible without the police, the rotten body of the Interior Ministry. The police are the main instrument in the hands of the authorities. Therefore, we are forced to wage war with police crap – for the sake of freedom, for the sake of justice.
They have laws, prisons, power on their side… We are only supposed to have poverty and eternal exhausting work for the oligarchy. The gap between a worker and an oligarch is so huge that it is terrifying. The elderly on the outskirts of the capital city collect waste paper and glass every day to buy social bread. If you ask a cop why such things happen, he will cheerfully answer: this is the order and law. The policeman knows the whole situation and consciously performs the role of a dog in the service of power. The policeman fetishizes his position, likes to wear a Fort 17 and drive a Prius, but he likes violence and money more. These are just some of the reasons why we have a lot of hatred for the police and the Interior Ministry structure as a whole.
There can only be confrontation between anarchists and cops until the MIA and its patrons, the state and the oligarchy, are completely destroyed. Each of us has to choose between working obediently for the system, shaking with fear for their lives, or resisting by all means.
We anarchists call for organized resistance: collective, individual resistance. Learn the theory of anarchism. Stock up on incendiary mixtures, weapons and ammunition. Attack the police. Fight against states. Do not be afraid of prisons. Freedom or death!
Strange as it may seem, the official website of the National Police of Ukraine is silent about arson. Only the rescuers reported it in a veiled manner. We think the cops are ashamed to write and publish photos of the burnt-out Prius. And so it always happens…
In 2015, Japan handed over about 1.5 thousand Toyota Prius to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine for patrol police. By now, about 1.3 thousand patrol “Priuses” have been broken or are out of order. There is little left. Let’s help the cops finish the job.
Our statement will not be complete if we do not say anything about our like-minded people in prisons and on the run. May this fiery news please and inspire you to continue the fight in any situation. As did Dmitry Polienko, an anarchist and defendant, who cut his hand with a razor blade in the courtroom on October 17, protesting against his detention in a closed courtroom.
At-large, in captivity or in an illegal situation, we will continue our attack on the government and the state.
