[en] (Greece) Zografou bomb could be linked to new group

17 de diciemrbe 2019

The counterterrorism department of the Greek Police (ELAS) believes the culprits that planted an explosive device across the road from a police precinct next to the campus of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in Zografou, eastern Athens, Monday were young members of anti-establishment groups experimenting with bomb making, possibly linked to a group calling itself the Iconoclastic Sect.

Investigators found significant similarities between the devices wiring with that of an bomb planted by the Sect outside the NTUAs civil engineering department in April 2018.

The same group had planted a bomb outside the Church of Agios Dionysios in Kolonaki, central Athens, in late December last year, which exploded and injured a church employee and a police officer. As with Monday’s incident, there was no warning phone call.

According to police sources, the explosive device in Monday’s attack consisted of gunpowder (of the type used in large firecrackers etc) in a tightly closed metal tube inside a 5-liter plastic container filled with nails. The device had a timer.

Investigators were unable to determine when exactly the perpetrators had planned for the bomb to go off. They believe that the aim was for it to detonate either during the night or in the early morning, but this did not occur due to some kind of fault.

The bomb was found at around 9 a.m. by the police precinct chief, who noticed it as he was parking his motorcycle. A bomb disposal unit destroyed the device in a controlled explosion.

The Iconoclastic Sect has claimed responsibility for a string of attacks since last year. In one of their statements regarding the explosion in Kolonaki last December they bemoaned the fact it did not cause more mayhem. Although the injuries were not serious and [the two wounded] escaped death by chance because the explosion was not as strong as we thought, we learnt our lesson for the next time, the group said at the time.

The text had been published on a Spanish-language website titled Eco-extremist curse (Maldicion Eco-extremista), and members of the group declared themselves members of an international federation of eco-extremists called Individualists Tending toward the Wild (ITS).

Nuestra sed de sangre ha sido saciada y alabamos a Pan y Dionisos y todo lo Desconocido por guiarnos hacia esta acción. Como los depredadores del bosque, percibimos el aroma de nuestra víctima y actuamos a partir de nuestra hambre por sangre humana. Nos CAGAMOS en toda la moralidad Occidental y todos nuestros detractores anarquistas Americanos. Nos regocijamos con el alzamiento de la muerte misma desde el mundo Submarino como nuestra cómplice personal. Luego de la acción, celebramos, fornicando mientras la dulce sangre de nuestras víctimas seguía fresca en nuestras manos. Deseándole la muerte a toda la civilización, nuestro grupo de extremistas asesinó felizmente a dos tecno-ejecutivos en la Costa Oeste, Tushar Atre y Erin Valenti. Realizamos los asesinatos sin más razón que el simbolismo de ver a dos endebles apéndices del sistema tecno-industrial yaciendo frente a nosotros primero en agonía, y luego inanimados. No nos importó una mierda Atre y su dinero, o sus empleados y como los abusaba. De todos modos, la muy certera fake news correctamente sostiene que ¡se estaba juntando con la gente equivocada! Nos reímos cuando Valenti se excitó por el hecho de ser secuestrada y cuando declaraba ante sus padres haber “despertado” horas antes de su muerte! La Pantera Submarina estuvo complacida por su sacrificio el cual parece haber aceptado.
Nos acercamos hacia ambas víctimas gritando “¡HOKA HEY!” en memoria de nuestros ancestros tribales quienes solo se mantenían como Jefes de Guerra si el balance de cuerpos se sostenía.

¡Por la muerte de todas las civilizaciones!
¡Que el Jaguar Negro se alze desde el mundo submarino para vengar a nuestros ancestros y satisfacer nuestros deseos de sangre humana!
¡Por la unificación de las Individualidades Salvajes!

Our thirst for blood has been satisfied and we praise Pan and Dionysus and all of the Unknowable for leading us to this action. Like the predators of the forest, we caught the sent of our prey and acted from our hunger for human flesh. We SHIT on all Western morality and all of our American anarchist naysayers. We rejoiced as Death itself rose from the Underwater World as our personal accomplices. After the action, we celebrated, fornicating while the sweet blood of our victims remained fresh on our hands. Wishing death to all of civilization, our group of extremists happily murdered two Tech executives in the West Coast, Tushar Atre and Erin Valenti. We conducted the killings for no other reason than the symbolism of seeing two flimsy appendages of the technoindustrial system laying first in agony, and then motionless before us. We gave no fuck about Atre and his money or his employees and how he abused. Although, the very real fake news claims correctly that he was mixed in with the wrong crowd! We laughed as Valenti became aroused at her kidnapping and as she plead with her parents to become awoken in the hours before her death! The Underwater Panther was pleased with her sacrifice which she seems to accepted.
We came before both victims yelling “HOKA HEY!” in the memory of our tribal ancestors who only remained Cheifs of War if the balance of bodies is maintained.

For the death of all civilizations!
May the Black Jaguar rise from the Underwater World to avenge our ancestors and satisfy our urges for human blood!
For the unification of Wild Individualities!

“Indeed, the fundamental claim of Anarchism in order to eliminate any principle, order or government –Arkhé– implies, however, and as the Eco-extremists point out, the fundamental subsistence of the Social, and in that, of the Humane.
Against this, as we have seen, Eco-extremism seeks exactly the elimination of the Human and its “Regression” to “the wild” and the “individual”, to erect the “Non-human”, thus eliminating metaphysical dualism. That is why Eco-extremists do not consider themselves or act as mere anarchists. They do not only seek the elimination of all principles. What they are looking for is the elimination of the Human subject.”

“(…) They DON’T “have more animosity to people who were from the Concertación than to the same people on the right”: they do not care exactly if they kill someone from the right, from the left, from above, from below, black, white, Chinese, Jew, Palestinian, heterosexual, homosexual, male or female, child or elderly, disabled or Olympic champion, poor or rich, dumb or intelligent. For them, any civilized Human deserves to be dead.”
-What is Eco-extremism?
An analysis of “Individualists Tending Towards the Wild”

“The world is like an hourglass, on the side above is civilization, with all its rigid structures that seek to ensure law and order, supported by the weight of its legal and moral frameworks that work to keep the whole cohesive. The lower side is Chaos, and bit by bit, the sand is falling. With it fall all the illusions of progress, all dreams about worlds of comfort and safety. Today, the upper side is still full enough, but little by little, Chaos is taking shape. It is only a matter of time for the world of human superiority to dissolve in the eternal waves of Chaos and Savagery. Meanwhile, we prefer to enjoy the fall, rather than clinging as fools to the mirages of a civilization whose very existence is based on a war against the imperturable advance of time that, like wild tides, gradually undoes everything.”

-Eighth interview to ITS.

We arrive at the moment when the gates of hell open and the darkest instincts are unleashed. The invisible threat unfolds now, in broad daylight, stealing, looting, burning …

We wander on the streets of Santiago with our daggers and our homemade devices looking for chaos, and to go straight to the point, we are awarded the most notorious acts of which we take part in the middle of the riots:

– Indiscriminate arson of luxurious and not luxurious cars, at least three were completely burned.
– We stabbed a wanna-be-hero citizen who tried to alert the army with his screams in order to capture us , with a couple of stabs we left him on the ground, losing blood, we hope that he swelled the list of casualties.
– We beat the crap out of a woman who tried to film us while we were setting some cars on fire, we did not kill her so later we can’t be labeled as machistas and all that garbage, HA! as if we care!

The forces of the earth along with all its mysticity have awakened us from our rest whispering their anathema in our ears: “May the whole world burn”, and we have responded as before, dancing among the flames celebrating the awakening of the new warriors who move like the young Kloketen, just as we did there in 2016 with our first attacks.

They can call us fascists, infiltrators, agents of disorder, WE DON’T CARE, we are extremist terrorists and if we have to “infiltrate” with the anarchists to loot a supermarket or burn a bus we will do it, if we have to “inflitrate” with far right militants and take advantage of the chaos to burn synagogues as it will be. Because we are like the storm that unleashes without warning, like the tsunami that devastates everything and makes no distinctions of class, gender or anything. We were, we are and we will continue to be UNKNOWN WILD NATURE.

This is a call to all agitators, the psychopaths, to the worst of the worst in society, to become part of the riots to take the destabilization one step further, we know that for years these icy lands of the South have It has been the home of countless demons that now have their chance to go out like us, with the chaos in their hands to become part of this war and enjoy the disaster seeing how everything falls apart.

A war salute for the “Chaos Inciters”, a new group of ITS in Chile that also took part in the riots, wherever they may be, may the Unknown keep you safe little brothers!

Always on the side of Chaos!
Against human progress and its filthy civility!

We incite chaos and destruction and once again we took advantaje of the mob within the demonstrations on these southerner lands, to cause destabilization.

Infiltrated in the midst of the enajenated mob and hooded vandals, we were around with only one target: fire and destruction.

We worship the burning flames, penetrating, see how everything burns, the gasoline has been a good ally.
Armed with bottles filled with flammable liquid, we proceed to burn everything, stealthy and always looking for our affinities, spreaded, we were, we are and we will be here, observing and laughing from the shadows.
Forwards the lumpen, mechas, destructive ones, criminals, looters, thieves and amoral ones.
The day of chaos is coming and we wish death to the city and human progress!

CHAOS INCITERS

(en) Eulogy for Abe

If you follow the online world of anti-civ discussion you might already be aware of the departure of Abe Cabrera from this world, apparently as a reaction to the responses to his writing projects.

For anyone reading this who are unaware of Abe or his projects, I will briefly sum Abe up, as best I can.
My first time encountering Abe was in September 2016, after reading content from his 2 blogs Wandering Cannibals and Atassa (both now deleted). Abe’s writings were relentless and unforgiving. He had a near Artaudian energy to his approach, which sparked in me immediate interest.

We soon after became “friends” through Facebook and I found myself caught between contradictory feelings towards him. What respect I had and have for Abe, regarding his engaging, critical and unforgiving arguments, became forced up against disappointment towards his vulgarity as a troll, the narcissism he revelled in as his infamy grew and the apparent lack of creativity, as he continually parroted the ideas of other’s within the eco-extremist milieu, which he was the English language voice of, and became reduced to perpetual negation. (Perhaps I was naïve to have hoped for much more from him. Maybe he was perfectly all he could have been.)

But I maintained interest in him, as he and his project succeeded in challenging the sensibilities and aesthetics of the vast majority of the anarchist milieu. During what will remain in my memory as the EE (eco-extremism) vs IGD (It’s Going Down website) saga of 2017, the upset caused by the Atassa journal Abe edited and contributed content towards shook anarchist discourse to the core. He and the eco-extremists he was a voice for challenged many of the presuppositions of its contemporary anarchist ideologues and forced us, particularly those of us anarchists within the anti-civ conversation, to stand naked and acknowledge those aspects of the wild that are most challenging to our world-views, which are in many ways still tied to the logic of civilisation and domestication.
As his infamy grew, Abe seemed to get more and more cultish, claiming to worship demons and becoming seemingly more and more interested in the super-natural. His final upload to his Wandering Cannibals blog exemplified this, with his appeals to Christian-type (albeit perhaps of an inverted Christianity) eschatological discourse (all of the blogs content can be found at this link https://ia801505.us.archive.org/33/items/wccontent69420/Zhu%205.pdf).

I cannot deny that the cultish aspects of Abe’s projects became increasingly disappointing, but his, strangely reminiscent of Jim Jone’s suicide, abandonment of the digital world is even more disappointing and I cannot deny being sad to have lost his voice from this aspect of the conversation.

I’ve seen some claim that Abe’s departure from the digital world was a reaction to hate from antifa type left-anarchists, but I do not believe this (or rather, I do not want to believe this). I’d rather believe that this has been done as an act of theatre of cruelty, an act of trolling par-excellent, where Abe intended that I, and others who took interest in his projects, would be disappointed in him and he could “lulz” as we ponder his disappearance. Alongside this, I’d like to think that this was a clever ploy to spark interest in the second issue of Atassa, leaving those of us who are interested in his thoughts forced to go to the journal for his ideas, rather than his blogs.

Whatever is the case, I hope this eulogy can stand as testament to an individual/writer/thinker/troll who was, if nothing else, undeniably provocative and interesting. He was in many ways ugly and worthy of critique and criticism, but was also brilliant in many ways and I will miss him. (And I hope he is thoroughly disgusted by this, should he ever read it).

(es) Towards A Radical Mysticism

“It was a though we’d been living for a year in a dense grove of old trees, a cluster of firs, each with its own rhythm and character, from whom our bodies had drawn not just shelter but perhaps even a kind of guidance as we grew into a family.”

“Other animals, in a constant and mostly unmediated relation with their sensory surroundings, think with the whole of their bodies.”
2 passages from David Abram’s Becoming Animal: An Earthly Cosmology

Caught between the differing narratives of both Jewish and Catholic families, a father constantly shifting between Christian and Buddhist traditions, and my mothers death when I was 7, I’ve always had a strained relationship with “God”, the divine and religious/spiritual thought. I explored various faiths and became somewhat of an experimental practitioner during my teens, exploring Christianity, Neo-Paganism, Buddhism, Hinduism and other faiths, some what divorced from those of the families I was born into.

Then I died (not in the melodramatic sense of edgy gothy “nihilists” and emo-kid aesthetics). My experiences as a young cancer patient in my late teens gifted me a more intimate relationship to death than that of my mother’s passing and the years that had followed from then, up until the point of my diagnosis. The experience of being little more than flesh tore away from me my relationship to these Symbols that had bridged my sense of self with my fundamental existential lack and formed (unstable) pathways for me to navigate the world as I encountered it.

This was both a horrifying experience and a liberating one. In the year prior to my diagnosis I had started exploring existentialist thought, through a somewhat Buddhist-existentialist practice and the individualist anarchism of Armand and similar thinkers, and as my relationship with the realm of “spiritual”/religious thought disintegrated through the experiences of the MRI machines, the brain surgeries, the steroids and the radiation therapy, existentialist thought served as a form of semiotic encoding to help me travel from despair to Life, as embrace of the Absurd and return to the body – (this was initially through Camus and Nietzsche in particular).

In the following year post-treatment, as I explored my relationship with my body through various means and my personal creativity, I came across 2 texts that encoded something I’d seen, experienced and known throughout my entire life, and that granted me words with which to articulate them – all that discourse has ever really granted me (or grants anyone as far as I can see) is new words to articulate the experience of their being-in-the-world; their experience of the Real (the wild) mediated by the Symbolic/technology. These 2 texts were Heidegger’s The Question Concerning Technology and Freud’s Civilisation and it’s Discontents. After reading these works on what it means to live within civilisation and the language they granted me, I then started on the “pathway” that led to my writing Feral Consciousness and worlds of thought and discourse I currently immerse myself (my-Self) within.

From these experiences with discourse and corresponding immediate embodied experiences I’ve undergone throughout my life, I’ve come to view eco-radical, anarchist and active-philosophy as practices of iconoclasm – as revealing what is underneath the icons of the Symbolic, technology, and seeking to destroy them. And my interests have been directed increasingly towards a type of ontological anarchism, based in deconstruction of the machine (both semiolinguistically and in its embodied form), the practice of creative radical semiotics and an ecophenomenology pursuing relationalities that civilisation attempts to deny through domestication, both within the body of the machine and as-close-to outside its territorialised-ontotheology as I can get living on this island in the North Sea, which has been the geographic-stage of the production of history and empire for almost as long as civilisation itself – the creation of Temporary Autonomous Zones.

So if this practice I’ve been engaged with is an attempt to form relationship with and reveal to others something concealed(/repressed/suppressed), and if Mysticism is a practice based in sense-perceptual experience (super or otherwise) of something rendered secret/concealed, then the green nihilism of attempting to destroy those aspects of the Leviathan I have means of destroying is some-what-of-a practice of Mysticism (something ontological anarchism has always found itself tied to).

Mysticism as a term invokes the image of something of a theistic-ideologue, which is a platform I’ve long distanced myself from, particularly within the context of the God of classical theism, and taken a somewhat Nietzschean aesthetic around. But I would not consider myself an atheist, in the general sense of the term, and am relatively comfortable with naming wild-Being as divine, as it is all power, all presence, all that is “knowable” (inside and outside language) and all love(/hate/desire/value). Nor would I consider myself a pantheist or a pagan, as my sensations of the acosmic egoistic transient present render me unable to embrace the notion that there exists an absolute existing totality these/this theology requires, and I’d find myself being inauthentic if I embraced the term animism for my practice, given my historical-geographical context within the narrative of History.

So regarding “God”, gods, the spirit, Life, death and the divine(, and the practice of radical semiotics) I feel like my relationship to wild-Being is one of a hylozoic-Mysticism, born from a practice of eco-radical ontological anarchism and the iconoclasm of feral-deconstruction – a radical Mysticism.

Now this morning I awoke to see this piece by a contemporary of mine within this world of anti-civ discourse I find myself within, within which he attempts to denounce mysticism through embrace of religious-type thought and self-renouncing denial of the immediacy of embodied subjectivity and a seemingly anti-civ scholasticism, which seems highly confused (and somewhat cultish). This follows from the apparent trajectory of the eco-extremist school of thought they (Cabrera) immerse themselves within and their Atassa project and its focus of thought. But, while I have some interest in eco-extremism as a phenomena and as a political movement, and the Atassa project, I find much ugliness in this scholasticism.

Scholasticism as an approach to discourse is (as I understand it) an attempt to gain scientific knowledge of the “revealed truth” of a religious dogma, through a dialectical approach – this is apparently being done, under Cabrera’s project, as a Catholic-Marxist scholasticism of dialectics-in-reverse. The methods of scientific “knowledge” has many issues, that those of us sympathetic to radical scepticism are familiar with, and religious dogma also presents problems for this approach, which again many within this world of discourse are very familiar with. Alongside these, there is the issue of the dialectic approach to discourse, which we might be condemned somewhat to engage with in this world of discourse (given how much Hegelianism and Marxism are part of this world). To quote Karl Popper “(t)he whole development of dialectic should be a warning against the dangers inherent in philosophical system-building” and to quote Nietzsche “I mistrust all systematizers and avoid them. The will to a system is a lack of integrity.”.

The dialectical approach is one based inherently in historicism, whose holist determinism presents itself as the narrative of the master-signifier of the supreme Other I have no desire to embrace and I find to be nothing more that the narrative of the mythic-illusion of civilisation, which I desire the destruction of. It’s semiolingusitic lexicon is nothing more to me than the cartography of those who wish to deny me the immediacy wild-Being and positivism of my subjectivity. My subjectivity might always be somewhat mediated through discourse, by my socialisation within this culture and the subsequent internalisation that is the general trajectory of normal-development (mine as described when I started this piece). But this doesn’t lead me to wish to deny myself the ecophenomeological authenticity of my embodied subject-sensitive rationality. Discourse and study, to me, is best done as an anarchist venture de-systematised epistemologically-free and as a venture not to discover some truism to be revealed, but to find words/signs/languages to reduce the limits language constructs for our worlds and to articulate our experiences as living feral beings, not to embrace the death of History.

So I cannot share in Cabrera’s rejection of Mysticism and embrace of scholasticism, with its apparent encouraging others to do the same. Rather I feel compelled to embrace, and feel anti-civ eco-radicals are best served embracing the iconoclastic Mysticism of ecophenomenological relationalities with wild-Being and the ontological anarchist deconstruction of the technosphere/the Leviathan/civilisation.

[en] (Mexico) 87 Communique of ITS

Taking advantage of the popular clamor, the demand for justice, the tolerant administration of the capital authorities and police incompetence, members of Individualists Tending towards the Wild have infiltrated the demonstration yesterday and have been participants in the riots generated in the downtown of the disgusting Mexico City.
Once again, Chaos seized the streets and our groups, along with other rabid antisocial, ravaged several targets within our reach. This is not the first or the last time we infiltrate a peaceful march, it is clear that ITS takes any opportunity to unleash Chaos, confusion and destabilization, we really don’t give a damn about their demands (from whoever).
For the mindless we clarify that, this is a small statement concerning of OUR responsibility in those riots, with this it does not mean that we were the ONLY responsible for the beautiful violence of a few hours ago, the merit also belong to others with whom we share masks, sweat, mocks and effusiveness.

For the Occult and the Unknown:
