Until now we had choosen not to talk about this issue, as it was “behind scenes” and we did not give much importance until then, but as now has became publicly in a political narrative, takin position on this issue is of a vital importance to take back our name from the dirty mouth of the liars with political goals.
Since we emerged publicly, there are many who try to understand our motivations, and the interpretations of who we are varies depending the observers, each one more imaginative than the other. In short, for the right wing we are a extreme-left terrorist group, and for the left-wing we are a fascist group created by the right-wing, both theories based in political justifications. It is not a surprise and actually it is very repetitive, but we reafirm that we are not on any of those sides, we are far beyond politics. ITS is a nihilist group of an extremist ecological tendency. Using a more complex languaje, there are many “fake news” about us, even in Wikipedia some lies have been included.
The world has learned a lot from the strategies of Steve Bannon, and more specificly in Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro was chosen only because of the massive strategy of virtually propagandistic lies and some political maneuvers executed by the judicial powers that now are on foreground. But not only the lies comes from the righ wing, the left also worship it. Left journalists and sites clearly interested in the Bannon strategy wich they criticize so much, created very funny lies about ITS, as it was the case of DCM (1), Brasil247 (2) and Revista Forum (3), wich situates us in a paranoic invention of the right wing to justify a “coup d’etat” due to the evident failure of the Jair Bolsonaro’s government. According to them, we were created some months ago by the “fascist right wing governemnt” as a secondary strategy to “create an insurrectional situation” in order to “block democracy” and “build a police state” (those are the words of Mauro Lopes). How many bad words, Mauro. In this way, hurts the spirit of journalism and it degrades to the level of sites like 0 Antagonista. We are not a “very serious political operation created by bolosonarism” some months ago. For a good investigation journalist, it is clear that we emerged on 2016, long time ago from the actual government, even during the presidence of Dilma Rouseff, wich was later defeated and Michel Temer came into power. Back in that time, we just started the inaugural week of the Olimpics (4) shortly after the spectacle articulated by the, at the moment minister, Alexandre de Moraes, who extravagate an operation of Federal Police wich arrested a supposed cell of Islamic State in Brazil, wich in reality was a bunch of beginners without capabilites and without any personal contact between them or capacity to carry out attacks. They did not attack and were arrested and the case spectacularized, but we did attack. We detonaded a pressure cooker filled with nails and spheres in the upper platform of Pilot Plane bus station (5). If we are not mistaken, we never revealed this information, but that was NOT the intended place for the blast, but instead we planned to place the bomb in a LINE of dozens of people who were waiting to get into a bus. We just changed the place in the last moment because the place was infested with cops and army officers, only 4 days before the start of the Olimpic Games of that year. What would happened if we blasted the intended spot? How many would been wounded or killed? that was in 2016 and Bolsonaro did not have even the chance to become president at the moment. Dilma go out and Temer come in, and we continue the attacks, here in Brasilia and other places, in darkness and publicly. Temer leaves and comes Bolsonaro, and we still planting bombs and carrying arson attacks. But for the “respected” leftist journalism, “we are clearly a fascist invetion from the far-right to justify an state of emergency under the governement of Jair Bolsonaro”. You are provoking self-shame with this stupidity, my dear.
Agencia Publica published once an interest reportage showing how the terrorist attacks from the righ wing promoted the AI-5 (6) in past times. That makes sense, but not this narrative builded by the newspapers. Those leftist think that if the governement was behind our attacks, they would be exectued as we did? with the same materials? with the same frecuency? or the same targets? They need to read some novels in order to stimulate their creativity and build something more spectacular, not those cringey and paranoid narratives.
Also crazy is the right wing who think of us as a “creation of PCC”. In the eve of takeover of Jair Bolsonaro we stated that we are aligned with PCC and CV, but that means only an intellectual alignment with the chaotic intentions of those groups in opposition to the politicians and the army, revealed together with the plans of scape of the São Paulo faction the last year. There is not direct dialogs nor pacts with those groups. But that does not means that we do not have interest. So, we are not a creation of those criminal factions.
The far-right journalist of the site Terça Livre, Fernanda Salles, recently contacted the blog Maldicion Eco-extremista saying that she was being “threatened by the Secret Wilderness Society”, and the administrators of the blog ME pass this information along with the contact of the journalist. We never threatened journalists. So, also, we are not the people behind the threats against Allan dos Santos nor the other journalist. In that moment we stated that we were not responsible for that and we do not care much about it, that if they felt threatened call the cops. The curious thing is that Fernanda lately wanted to give us information about the people behind those supposed threats, as if she wanted to make us stand against them to search for them and “take revenge”, wich did not happened, as we were not interested in this fight, even if implies (not publicly) our name. The journalist Allan do Santos, the journalist Fernanada Salles and the site Terça Livre are responsibile of many “fake news” (7), so we will be not surprised if they made-up those alleged threats using our name to play with their political rivals. But we do not discard also the possibility that a mediocre leftist use our name to archieve political goals with this threats.
The political narrative with our name have been intesified and reached levels that make us furious. The new episode of this lie was published by 0 Antagonista. On July 3, the site published a supposed e-mail received by the senator Marcos do Val (8), rapporteour of the “package against crime”, and supposedly the e-mail was signed by us. Marcos delivered a video to the Federal Police in wich can be seen armed men wandering around his house, stating that he was being threatened because of his complaing of the wrecked “package” made up by Sergio Moro. We did not sent any e-mail to Marcos and no member of ITS wander around the house of this senator. In short, either this is a fake of the right “create a dangerous enemy for the left” to demoralize it (even more) or is a joint of the left to block the political projects of the right through terror. Everything related to our activities is reported in the blogs “mouthpiece” of ITS, if not disclosed on those spaces is because is not from us, is just lies.
The left call us “fascist creation of the far-right”, the right call us “communist invention of the far-left”, and from far away we watch, some times laughing and some times infuriating us. Both stupid groups, failed, clearly defective in their political articulations and both harmful for the few things that are important to ITS. The fact that we make angry the governemnt of Jair Bolsonaro does not make us leftists. This is colossally harmful because wild nature does not have political sides nor flags. While the left was on power on the last years of administration also was extremely harmful as any other government would do. So all that structure can go to hell, this is not what we deal with or what we care for, if every civilization collapses in fron of our eyes with their politics and their values, we will enojoy it laughing. We are more worried about the starving polar bears that travel hundred of miles in search of food and feed themselves with piles of rubbish (9), about the bees producing honey with waste (10), about the sea animals with human produced garbage merged into their bodies (11), about the birds feeding their babies with cigarette butts (12), about the forests teared apart because of the progress (13), with mineral dams collapsing and swallowing eco-systems (14), this is what matter to us. We do not care about anything else.
