Development: target for a better future… or any future at all!

(Updated)

Today, the American continent is still the main front for the biggest operation of imperial conquest. Horizontal, or suburban development, is by far one of the worst ongoing ecological disasters, along with monocultures, the nuclear/biotech industries and the whole natural resources industry, all of these being the only reasons why our former colonies have sprung out of European empires; while imperialism was swept under the carpet in our History classes, while it has become viral, and exponential since the so-called post-war «decolonization movement», and especially the ongoing devastating military invasions carried by NATO abroad. More than this, the process of continuous invasion has gone into full battle mode here, right under the veil of social order, and one has to got to live in suburbia for not to see it, because everywhere else, it is an easily observable fact.

It's not just about that... but you get the idea.

Obviously, there is something bigger at play behind all the machines of destruction and their restless, mindless soldiers of the construction industry, tying them all together in a same never-ending process. 

The machine of development

The continuous need for expansion, progress, or growth, is the only rationale allowing imperialism to persist and prevail, if we understand this « need » as being firsthand the one of the class that profiteers from the empire, before everyone else. This is why outside of this primary necessity, development will forever be devoid of any substance or rationality, other than the vain hope of improving one’s living conditions, that merely derives from the industry’s marketing campaigns, as none really goes on such glorious adventure solely out of faith, or love for their empire, while expecting no gains in return.

Therefore, to give it a rationale, it’ll have to be supported by nationalism (or internationalism), faith in God (or the State), conservative (or liberal) values as well as even more blurry creeds, as the quest for Happiness or humanitarianism; all this acting as an ideology that provides an inclusive, generalist rationale to an invasion which in fact doesn’t have any. A unifying Grand Illusion that’s only there to fuel more production and further invasion by the masses while generating profits for the big parasites, and dividends for all the substrates. The accumulation of profit is the engine of growth, and this, even the craftiest of these professional liars, the economists, will admit it.

As in every dogma generated by the selfish decrees of industrial capitalism, at every age or location on the planet, there are no popes and bishops to instate and regulate the doctrine, and no priests working hard and steady to enforce it. There, are the center of the dogma, the one they have to answer to and work for, once they are done with their experimental years at college and university, where they could discover its value through domination and consumerism, is the very sacred principle of accumulation of capital. This what ties the disciples of Che Guevara, Noam Chomsky, Jean-Paul Sartres and Ayn Rand, from the most gruesome aspects of the Left to the most bloody fascistic of the Right, including all the flimsy and softy liberals in between. These are the intellectual caste, the higher-skilled proletarians. These, are the symbol manipulators, who later become dispassionate designers and conceivers of the capitalist dogma. Accountants, lawyers, designers, journalists, real-estate agents, speculators… the careers are countless, but the role is always the same. Throughout the rest of their lives, both golf-playing business people and the liberal artists chatting after theater plays will together come to serve this dogma with the same enthusiasm, but relatively reluctant self-awareness. In other words they’ll do it because it grants them wealth, power or social status, but not exactly out of passion, or love, since they cannot be expected to identify personally with their job. As with the rest of workers, they make their shift and go home for serving another day.

In comparison, priests of the distant past used to direct their religious devotees into building temples beyond human proportions -at Ur, Babylon, Luxor, Rome or Paris- as well as towns made of gigantic stones on steep, elevated mountain sides, mostly out of elevations of faith (even though it wasn’t always purely selfless). They were also torturing themselves and others to get rid of some « Evil », and seeing their condition of poverty as a form of wealth, and not exactly as a basic condition of happiness. This is the kind of insanity that the power of faith allows. But this faith had become so impersonal and profound that it couldn’t respond to the lesser material imperatives of the sex-food-and-drugs market, when capitalism became a dominant system and these things became pillars of the economy. When Rock’n’Roll and TVs came as flagships of the new dogma, it became the ultimate satanic blend to strike the final blows. This was later used against the “Red Menace” of communism, as TV tubes were sent all across the slums of the Third World as “humanitarian aid”… to evangelize the poor with “Dynasty” so they too learn the way of material success, through becoming crime lords and sex slaves. So the big winner in this industrial-era spiritual conflict, Capital, ends being a much more selfish -and self-serving- dogma, yet it is purely universal, as it already broke all boundaries, gives the biggest exploiters a World Citizen passport, and is now reaching to the stars for more savage exploitation. In a way, frees us from the old order of the Christian doctrine, although it puts us in a more pervasive form of slavery, as God, just like any good friend should, did not use to want us to perform, or be good-looking.

Inversely, it’s rather among the enforcers of the dogma, these cold-blooded workers of this dominion -the cops, construction workers, nurses, ticket controllers, drug dealers, professional athletes- that we can observe such mindless, selfless passion. But mainly cops, without whom all this enforcement business would lose most of its serious; as we all know -or feel- how fear is still efficient as ever, to provide with a strong, irrational argument to the masses for submitting to the dogma. Cops, and the lesser private security guards, are the few ones willing to put their lives on the line for handing out a ticket or punishing a hobo for stealing a chocolate bar. As Christian priests used to police youngsters in the streets who dared kissing each other; cops, with their thunder-shooting devices and their threat of immediate damnation -to a Hell of concrete blocks, from one night to an entire lifetime- inherited this lowly, dangerous job of playing the Hero for a higher order they aren’t even supposed to understand. Capital surely doesn’t care about the fate of our souls after death -at least for now- but it works tirelessly to make us into soulless drones, who as they reach the adult age of production, may go as far as sacrificing themselves for a paycheck. The absolute nonsense of religion.

And for the workers who do neither of these businesses, well, they are just proles. Hired labor, unattached workers, legal prostitutes, wage slaves; as opposed to being purchased labor, those who are “bought” by the system through education, like the ones mentioned above.

Here’s for the individual aspect of its machinery. Of course, we do support development by other means than paid labor in our non-lives, but it’s always dependent, one way of another, on the efforts we do for the same system that feeds from it.

On the more general scale, accumulation of capital and expansion are two mutually inclusive and dependent variables in the capitalist industry, working in perfect symbiosis, the same way than breathing in and out are the vital basis of the cardiovascular system. If you happen to not understand this very intimate relation, please repeat that sentence everyday in your mind, by looking at how the world around you works, you’ll soon get it. This has got to be understood fully, before pretending to break down this system. Many revolutionaries of late, in fact, have only looked at one flip of the coin, without being aware that this dual polarity is what makes it so strongly persistent… just as with any other natural or unnatural system in the universe. This is understandable, since this system seems to have become fully reliant on the spectacle industry since the Cold War era, where the spectacle has replaced faith as a main drive for colonial expansion, and the older revolutionary paradigm couldn’t allow grasp this dynamic soon enough. Every single revolutionary who seeks to go onward the capitalist system should see how this system is desperately dependent upon development.

And just as in any unsustainable system, if it’s expansion is compromised, it begins to suffocate. This is why the traditional religious society did last for such a long time, because the void of its dogma became an absolute value -above all human spirit and flesh- that is the vacuous entity known as «God» (or Allah, of Yahweh); while the void of capital doesn’t convene any spiritual ardor, or model of enduring enterprise whose value goes beyond the one it creates on material goods. On the other hand, it systematically generates people like Anders Breivik, car and truck-driving psychopaths and other human slave bombs by the thousands -who not so surprisingly all turn out to be males- through its nihilistic, “one against all” models of performance and success; by first enslaving us to the “everyone for his/her own butt” mentality. In simpler terms, capitalism uses society against itself, and makes this social war profitable, as with any other war it has started in History.

Hence why no capitalism can ever be sustainable. In practice, it generates a collective mutually-assumed destruction, on a massive scale…

Hence why any form of development -industrial, humanitarian, spectacular/democratic, techno-scientific- has become the main war front of capitalism; its most sensitive, and surprisingly, yes, its most vulnerable…

Through the land grabs, Police State measures, military invasions, toxic mass-spraying of wild areas and the spread of cell phone antennas; expansion has become the central mechanism of war-profiteering. A mechanism which seems very abstract, intangible, but that is depending upon very concrete devices; these are all the instruments that allow the broadcasting of its own propaganda and to physically establish itself, formatting the land and building its many infrastructures -roads, buildings, pipelines, power/communications lines and so on- in the present and ulterior phases of expansion. These devices are diverse, although universally redundant, and are directly attached to a specific form of specialization in the whole process of development (real-estate, tourism, mining, oil, etc); but it’s obvious that the most important of all these are the fluxes of exchange that are the inevitable supports for expansion movements. The fluxes go also in straight parallel with the flow of investments in the means of production, from which profits are derived further down the line.

The energy fluxes above all else, even before the land, air and sea routes. For if there is no flow of energy vectors -such as water, electricity, communications signals and fuels- there simply can be no industry in any given area. And the root condition making these develop like a cangrene through healthy cell tissue, is none else than demand. It can be considered as an energy vector, but an energy of void, or antimatter. One that attracts, and then radiates all the flows of energy through its many different tentacles,

Both demand and its consequent fluxes can be eradicated, or at least incapacitated, from the start, without too much need for tiresome or dangerous warfare against more evolved phases of development. Because both aspects are often found to rely on infrastructures that are easily sabotaged or subverted. As through human affairs, it is, as opposed the naive misconceptions -or fraudulent lies- of economists, a completely artificial, created factor. It so appears dynamic, to a point where religious devotees of capital would describe it as “natural law”, because it is systemic; generated through an organized, standardized, regulated production process.

Demand is generated by the symbols of the spectacle and its industry. This is what sweet dreams are made of: symbolic links, to what is not, but what could or should be. This is the marketing side of it, without whom, as we have seen earlier, development wouldn’t gather many crowds into its destructive processes of production. These symbols can be found at every place where capitalist civilization is to be found, and they are an imagery of the non-existent, of what isn’t there. It always tries to be a projection of an idealized existence, no matter how realistic it may or may not pretend to be at all. It is in a film theater, on a advertisement panel, through the insipid acting job of some radio host, the overwhelming display of brutality by the police, or in the obvious mechanical smile of a waitress (to waiters-esses: sorry to be harsh… I know you don’t like it as much as it looks).

Deriving from the main topic, this is how a significant part of the East Berlin autonomous squatters movement of the ’90s was bought into becoming liberal artists and social programmers; they designed the very conditions of their own posh enslavement, through adjusting their demand(s) to the conditions of defeat imposed by the State. So in about 10 years, the situation has gone from +900 autonomous occupied buildings and spaces to a handful of State-sanctionned hausprojekts, that now serve as beds for the most vile and violent reactionary agents (commonly known as “Nazi punks” or “fascist metalheads”), hidden in plain view from their gentle pseudo-antifascist roommates. Just as in the romanticized Berlin of the ’20s, where social-democracy had produced sinister comfort beds were sexy and trendy liberal leftists slept with the disgusting, bloody freikorps, out of the public eye.

This shows how dreams of emancipation through compromises turn idealists into treacherous, mindless whores. True revolutionaries and struggling souls aren’t impressed by ideals, and don’t bow into compromise with the “powers-that-be”.

Destroying the machine of development

Not only for the survival of our species and the ones targeted by it, but for life itself. It creates possibilities for life by protecting them from what negates it, and in this aspect, it is far more creative than reproduction, especially when many of our progenies are bent on becoming mindless enforcers of the dogma and nature destroyers. At this point, we’re allowed to realize how freedom and life equate to the very same thing.

Above all this, it is also for unleashing a process of radical change in our relation towards nature. To force the idea that the land, air and sea simply cannot be owned, first of all, no matter the bureaucracy and police violence involved to justify this purely abstract idea of ownership. It’s the biggest mind job ever created by the Grand Illusion of capitalism, especially for making us believe it is a fact of human nature.

So how can we destroy something so vapid, so abstract as “development”, or “expansion” of industrial capitalism? At first glance this sounds crazy… a bit like trying to attack a god by standing on the roof of a church with a bow and shooting arrows at the clouds. But since what drives development is created though concrete devices, it is also where you can find its points of materialization; its frontier between the abstract ideals, and the material conditions of their fulfillment.

As an example, to merely vandalize a bunch of real-estate advertisement panels in a region is in itself a way to turn a bunch of “Yes! You can colonize here” road signs to a “No. Fuck off and go home”, thus destabilizing the demand in this area, especially when it’s being carried during “peak” times (tourist season, some holiday, public events, etc). The second potential of such tactic is that -just as with the glass-breaking of chain stores, ATM-smashing and molotov-ing of banks or police infrastructure (cars, stations, CCTVs)- it can be easily reproduced to eventually become a culture of counter-offensive, allowing anyone out there who shares the same anger at the system to reproduce it and spread the message further, without the need of any direct contact with co-conspirators, thus building a “virtual” movement of resistance. In order to have a stronger, deeper effect on this machinery, you would probably have to sabotage more important infrastructures -like offices or fluxes, or spaces higher up In the social hierarchy- but this may demand a lot more in terms of organizing with others, since of course we can’t expect everyone to be a Don Quixote, or it’s modern version Ted Kaczinsky. What matters is to attack where it hurts, where we can, and to twist the knife!

Because the nature of this empire -a cybernetic one- is that it no longer has a physical center. It actually stopped having one long ago, perhaps during the purported fall of the great monarchic empires, or more likely under the bipolar world order of the Cold War. No matter when or how it happened, its getting fairly obvious that civilization has completely lost its heart, socially, morally and geopolitically. It relies upon a multitude of poles, turntables, energy capacitors that ensure the recirculation of capitals and their multiplication in a given area. These generators also provide with the structures of reinforcement and manipulation of symbols as described above. These poles can be as much techno-industrial/spectacular urban pivots such as Tokyo or New York, or the “Republic of Kosovo” for their heroin trafficking in Europe, just as the corporate universities, military bases planted in every region on the planet; and let’s not forget the Vatican octopus head, as well as all these sacred temples of global capitalism, banks. In the parallel “criminal” underworld, the prisons play the exact same role of capacitance, feeding off the mafia gangs until their capitalists integrate into the higher exploitation hierarchy. As opposed to a common misconception, there aren’t really borders between organized crime cartels and financial/political “business” networks; if there would be, the drugs and humans trafficking markets wouldn’t be around, or not so noticeable. It is how capitalism became global, by developing capacitors everywhere, interconnected into always wider and stronger networks of State-supported gangsterism.

How long will it take for us to aim higher next time?

This is why the rich are always on-the-move, with their posh residences and more temporary resorts spread all over the world; so are their continuous meetings, covering several distant locations in a same week, as they fly or roll in high-speed trains. The wealthier and more influent they are, the farther their homes are away -or up above- from the social Roman hypogeum they conceived for us, and the faster they move freely above the constraints of bureaucracy and police control; as opposed to the vast majority of plebeians below, who are fed to their lions and gladiators (the cops and the military) or work on others to be sent to this daily spectacular massacre. Being world citizens is the only trait they share with revolutionaries and terrorist organizations.

Since it is completely rotten to the core, the empire has now become ex-centric; depending not on a central kernel of power but rather on a eggshell-like superstructure, and this is the only structure holding it together, and allowing its existence to perpetuate. It does make sense that a global corporate empire that goes all around a planet needs to be structured accordingly, like a gigantic web that seeks to crush the world in its grasp. This is the face of capitalist oligarchy, which uses nets to distribute wealth, to be later concentrated in gigantic safes, somewhere in Switzerland, Hong Kong, Dubai or the City of London. These concentrators of capital are theoretically unbreakable fortresses (although, like it’s been proven with the burning of the Rabobank skycrapers in early 2011, it’s always a relativity), but everything that ties them with the large system is much weaker, and harder to keep secure.

This is in itself the concrete reflection of the decentralized nature of the current capitalist power structure. Since there is no imperial city or throne room to raid or bomb, the comfort lairs of the higher caste are spread all over the world. It is a benefit, in a way, for their posh areas of tranquility are closer to our arm’s reach -sometimes right under our nose- strangely guarded not often at their doorstep, but down in the streets where we survive within the walls and the fences of their society of control. These are the binding conditions -concrete, inevitable, terrible- of our enslavement, build through the imaginary social contract between ourselves and the State, but still we all have the freedom to break out of these. It only has to be shown to the entire mankind that it is possible, and that it creates a new situation that overcomes the bars and trappings of the very system we created.

In solidarity with all the oppressed animals of this world.

En Grèce, le soleil se lève encore

Posted in Appel, Réflexions with tags , , , , , , , on 2011/07/06 by anabraxas

À lumière du soulèvement populaire récent en Grèce contre le capitalisme global et son terrorisme économique, j’ai cru bon de traduire et rendre disponible le récent texte de la Conspiration des Cellules de Feu, « The Sun Still Rises », présenté ici en trois parties, mais avant…

Introduction à la Conspiration

(tiré de « Our Lives of Burning Vision« )

« Dans le chaos de notre propre existence, nous sommes une part de l’impondérable élément qui organise la subversion, les plans mutineries, qui nous laissent nous-mêmes étourdis. La traduction de textes, lettres, communiqués, etc. afin que les camarades des autres pays à travers le monde puissent lire les désirs, les idées et la « projectualité » des camarades de Grèce, est une arme de plus à notre disposition. Ce qui commença comme un simple désir et un challenge nous a amenés à un nouveau terrain d’expériences, de connaissances et de responsabilités. Maintenant que nous sommes là, ils ne se débarrasseront pas facilement de nous.
Nous sommes devenus un autre aspect de la menace asymétrique. La guerre jusqu’à la fin a déjà commencé. … »

Depuis l’introduction par Actforfreedomnow-Boubouras.

Une énorme tempête de révolte a fait rage dans les rues de Grèce en Décembre 2008. Après l’assassinat de sang-froid d’Alexis Grigoropoulos (15 ans) par un flic, les émeutes se déployèrent à travers le pays entier pendant plusieurs semaines. Des centaines de cibles d’entreprises et du gouvernement furent attaquées, pillées et brûlées. Bien que ce soit les anarchistes et les anti-autoritaires qui aient pris la tête de cet ouragan la première semaine après le meurtre, elles se diffusèrent d’elles-mêmes rapidement et un grand nombre de gens s’impliquèrent dans la révolte contre les conditions de vie misérables, contre les autorités et contre le désespoir offert par ce monde aux exploités et aux opprimés. Mais la révolte ne cessa pas à la fin de l’année 2008, pas plus qu’elle ne commença au jour du meurtre. Les attaques contre les structures de l’État et du Capital continuèrent et se répandirent dans plusieurs plus petites villes de Grèce.

Environ 180 attaques incendiaires et, depuis deux mois, à la bombe artisanale (« faites maison ») ont été réalisées sous le nom de « Conspiration des Cellules de Feu ». Les attaques furent dirigées contre des banques, des concessionnaires automobiles, des centres commerciaux, des institutions gouvernementales, des postes de police, des bureaux de partis politiques, des maisons de politiciens, des juges, des criminologistes, des journalistes, des entreprises de sécurité privées et des compagnies de construction de prisons,… et toujours accompagnées par des revendications élégamment critiques et nihilistes de la responsabilité des anarchistes.

Les revendications ne critiquèrent pas seulement le Capital, l’État et l’Autorité (dans tous leurs aspects), mais aussi la résignation des exploités, leur mentalité de troupeau, leur collaboration avec le système. La Conspiration des Cellules de Feu (CCF) refuse de considérer l’oppression et l’exploitation comme étant simplement imposées par les matraques et le chantage, mais les comprend comme une relation sociale dans laquelle tous ont leur responsabilité -et font ou ne font pas le choix de lutter contre.

En septembre 2009, de vastes raids anti-terroristes tentèrent de frapper la CCF; ces raids devinrent un outil politique de plus pour attaquer plus largement le mouvement anarchiste et anti-autoritaire, une situation qui s’intensifia quand deux membres des CCF furent capturés durant une opération en Novembre 2010 à Athènes. Contre le kidnapping légaliste en cours de nos camarades et pour l’escalade de la lutte pour la libération totale, la Conspiration des Cellules de Feu: Secteur Illégal appela à un projet informel et global basé sur la subversion anarchiste, l’action directe et la solidarité internationale. Ces documents rassemblent quelques uns des nombreux communiqués, lettres et mises à jour juridiques et judiciaires concernant la Conspiration des Cellules de Feu, les camarades accusés de la même affaire, plus des actions de solidarité résultant de l’appel pour la formation d’une Fédération Anarchiste Informelle/ Front Révolutionnaire Anarchiste.

Bien que cette publication puisse bien sûr seulement offrir une vision partielle de la situation et des sujets, elle est produite dans l’esprit de rébellion qui attise la guerre totale contre la domination. C’est un document inachevé qui recherche une collaboration à travers les actes de refus. L’appel international qui a été diffusé pour la formation subversive d’un Front Révolutionnaire/Fédération Informelle Anarchiste (Globale), qui est basée sur les principes de solidarité internationale, de subversion permanente et de conflit constant, devrait être discuté, débattu et mis en œuvre sans délai.

Le Soleil se lève encore

1. Au commencement

L’organisation de la Conspiration des Cellules de Feu n’a pas commencé ces activités de nulle part. Ce n’est pas comme si une ligne droite s’était dessinée à travers le temps et l’espace. Ce fut un futur cri retensissant du passé. La Conspiration a donné lieu à une synthèse collective, connectant les perspectives de tous ceux et celles qui y ont participé et dressant des conclusions valables des expériences de projets subversifs et d’attaques auxquelles nous avons pris part. Ça a représenté notre désir d’aller plus loin, non pas de monter dans une échelle de hiérarchie informelle qui fétichise la violence et ses méthodes, mais de simplement progresser, d’aller de l’avant et d’explorer de nouvelles avenues, évoluant d’une bande de copains à une organisation, du sporadique au consistant, du spontané au stratégique.

Au cours de ce trajet nous avons pris une position critique face au passé, mais nous n’avons jamais quitté le sentier de l’hostilité. Nous sommes les mésadaptés-es de l’anarchie, né-es de ses moments de possibles comme de ses vides béants. Additionellement, le but de la critique et l’auto-critique n’est pas de mettre un terme à quelque chose, mais l’inverse: c’est une aspiration à faire évoluer quelque chose. Le fait que nous n’allons pas maintenant élaborer une revue critique sur nos agissements ne veut pas dire que nous avons peur de reconnaître nos erreurs. Plutôt, c’est parce que cette forme d’examen est mieux livrée avec la distanciation et en calmant nos nerfs que par des impulsions,

Durant aucune phase de notre brève et intense histoire avons nous perdu la mémoire collective du milieu anarchiste d’où nous provenons. Nous sentons aussi avoir découvert un dénominateur commun avec les camarades qui ont commencé cette lutte avant nous, s’étant engagés dans leurs propres luttes, furent arrêtés et emprisonés, mais n’ont jamais baissé leurs têtes.

Nous avons découvert une passion irrepentante pour la révolution qui relie des histoires et réalités de luttes de différentes décennies, dans un commun contexte de libération indiviuelle et collective.

Parmis ce contexte nous avons forgé notre propre alphabet. Parlant dans le langage de l’action directe, nous avons ouvertement souligné l’enjeu de créer une infrastructure d’organisation. En tant qu’anarchistes, nous sommes portés-es à se distancer du concept d’organisation car il signifie pour nous hiérarchie, rôles figés, spécialisation et obligations (le “je dois”). Mais encore, les mots acquièrent la signification des gens qui les utilisent. En tant que Conspiration des Cellules de Feu, nous avons frappé au coeur de signification même de l’organisation anarchiste révolutionnaire.

2- Le parcours de l’étincelle à la flamme

Dès la première heure, nous avons rejeté l’idée d’un modèle centraliste et avons choisi de grandir à partir des initiatives individuelles cherchant à se collectiviser. Ce qui a émergé durant les réunions organisationnelles furent des enjeux de cohérence, de consistence, de responsabilité individuelle et collective, et de l’action directe comme un moyen de transformer nos idées en faits de l’action.

Aux réunions de groupe, chaque camarade a eu l’opportunité de proposer un plan d’attaque, ouvrant ainsi un débat sur la planification, la ponctualité, l’analyse politique et les problèmes opérationnels posés par le lieu de la cible choisie.

Rien ne garantissait qu’au cours de ces discussions nous allions en venir à une entente. Des arguments opposés se sont parfois développés en une puissante dialectique, particulièrement concernant la priorité que nous donnions à la temporalité, et le plus souvent il y avait plus d’une proposition; or nous avions à choisir celles qui étaient prioritaires pour laisser les autres en suspens. C’est un processus qui nous a permis de nous ouvrir l’esprit, élargissant nos horizons, apprenant des expériences des autres; défendant vigoureusement nos opinions, reconnaître nos erreurs; comprendre l’idée de construire quelque chose collectivement; devenir conscients de la nécessité d’une stratégie; et -le plus important de tous- de créer des relations interpersonnelles vivantes, pas au nom d’un quelconque “professionalisme” révolutionnaire axé sur un but figé, mais fondé sur l’amitié, la vraie camaraderie et la solidarité authentique.

Nous aimons ce que nous faisons, car c’est là qu’est notre essence. Ainsi, la “Conspiration” n’est pas seulement nous tous ensemble, c’est aussi chacun-e de nous à part. Même dans les cas où il n’y avait pas de consensus sur une action particulière, aucun ne s’est réduit à “quêter” à la majorité démocratique prédominante. Au lieu de cela, la minorité de camarades qui ont insisté à mener leur attaque prirent l’initiative d’aller de l’avant avec leur choix. C’est arrivé en parallèle avec le reste du collectif, qui les a supporté à des certains moments quand ce fut nécessaire, contribuant ainsi à notre organisation plus gobale.

C’est pourquoi un nombre de communiqués furent signés par des groupes (comme “Faction Nihiliste”, “Commando du souffle de la terreur”, “Unité de guerilla terroriste”) qui se sont formés à travers des initiatives séparées. Durant cette seconde phase, après avoir atteint un commun accord, en tant que collectif en entier ou comme initiative séparée, nous avons orchestré l’attaque.

Et à cette fin, chacun de nous a contribué de ses connaissances; les informations étaient extraite de journaux, zines et de l’Internet; le lieu de notre action fut repéré et cartographié; la voie d’entrée et de sortie dessinée, dans le but de nous faire éviter les caméras et vigiles policières, en incluant des voies alternatives en cas d’imprévus, et bien-sûr en se préparant à l’éventualité de confrontation avec des flics. Il y avait aussi les solutions de secours; groupes de support, cachettes, façons de demander de l’aide à des inconnus, etc. (dans un manuel futur, nous allons analyser et expliquer nos expériences, selon notre perception du contexte réel d’une attaque).

Durant la troisième phase -où la proposition initiale de cible d’attaque ne fut pas perdue de vue- nous travaillions sur le texte du communiqué. Quand un thème fut suggéré (comme par exemple d’attaquer la police), le-la camarade qui l’a proposé argumentait aussi sur son contenu. Ainsi une discussion commençait, au cours de laquelle chaque personne épluchait le concept, exprimant son désaccord, soulevant les problèmes, et offrant d’autres façons d’approcher le sujet.

Aussitôt le débat fini, peu importe combien de réunions il fallait pour en venir à bout, le collectif rassembla les thèmes centraux soulevés au cours de toutes les discussions furent repris et devinrent les axes principaux autour duquel le communiqué serait écrit. La rédaction du communiqué sur un sujet particulier fut habituellement partagé parmi ceux-celles qui s’en tenaient responsables, et après que ce fut écrit, nous nous rassemblâmes pour le lire et faire les corrections, ajouts, et autres touches finales. Si le communiqué était lié à une initiative séparée, les camarades impliqués étaient responsables de le rédiger.

Même processus pour nos camarades de Thessaloniki, et quand nous collaborâmes en tant que la Conspiration des cellules de feu Athènes-Thessaloniki, les camarades des deux villes coordonnèrent leurs actions à partir de principes d’aide mutuelle et de camaraderie…

(prochain épisode à venir: « Tout le monde fait tout »)
