(rough English translation by It’s Going Down, see full Spanish version below). 

On August 30th, we sabotaged with paint an ATM bank, “Bancomer,” in response to the “International Week in solidarity with anarchist prisoners,” and also to commemorate the black memory of our comrade Sebastian. This act was performed also to the surprised looks of passers-by; before the futility of “the bodies of order.” This street is the most guarded by dogs of the state, not only by the steady pace of patrols from both police and military, but also from the presence of security guards from ITESM.

Ever so rabidly do we act; an act that demonstrates our hatred for their money, their economy, their social order … to their civilization. This act was not to protest any “improvement” for the “people.” This action was carried out by anarchic individuals in anti-social solidarity and complicity with our comrades in affinity who are kidnapped by the state; to bring the anarchic idea to it’s ultimate conclusion. Forward comrades, destroy all prisons! We will burn your civilization!

A strong embrace of solidarity to the companion Tamara Farias, vengeance arrived!

Comrade Sebastian Oversluij presente …!

Freedom for all anarchist prisoners

The ongoing war …

For anarchy!

El día 30 de agosto, saboteamos con pintura un cajero automático del banco “Bancomer” en respuesta a la “Semana internacional en solidaridad con lxs presxs anarquistas”, además conmemoramos la memoria negra de nuestro compañero Sebastián Oversluij (Pelao angry). Este acto lo realizamos ante la mirada sorprendida de transeúntes que pasaban por ese lugar, ante la inutilidad de “Los cuerpos del orden” ya que esa calle es de las más vigiladas por los perros del estado. No solamente por el constante paso de patrullas tanto de policías y militares, sino la presencia de guardias de seguridad del Tecnológico de Monterrey.

Aun así nosotrxs realizamos rabiosamente nuestro acto, un acto que demuestra nuestro odio hacia su dinero, su economía, a su orden social… hacia su civilización. Este acto no fue para protestar por alguna “mejora” para  el “pueblo”. Para nosotrxs el “pueblo” nos importa nada, esta acción fue realizada por individualidades anti sociales anárquicas en solidaridad y complicidad con nuestros compañeros en afinidad que se encuentran secuestrados  por el estado, por llevar la idea anárquica hasta las últimas consecuencias. ¡Fuerza compañeros destruiremos todas las prisiones! ¡Quemaremos su civilización!

Un fuerte abrazo solidario a la compañera Tamara Farías , la venganza llegara, fuerza compañera.

Compañero Sebastian Oversluij presente…!

Libertad a lxs presxs anarquistas

La guerra continua…

¡Por la anarquía!

Chile: Words from anarchist prisoner Sergio Álvarez in memory of Sebastián ‘Angry’ Oversluij

Insurrection News received and translated:

Greetings comrades, I write these words and give them all my love in response to the call for a week of action in memory of our fallen brother in combat Sebastián Oversluij that was carried out this week.

In my current position as a prisoner it has been hard to find out many details about this but in the context of the individual and collective actions undertaken by comrades outside there arises in me the need to contribute, although it is a minimum gesture of solidarity, it is important to use whatever weapons are available to continue in a combative manner to remember a comrade who gave his life and his death in the struggle against Power, Authority and all of it’s Domination.

This is why on Thursday along with comrade Ignacio Muñoz who is imprisoned in module 34, we fasted in solidarity, understanding that our bodies can and should be positioned as one more front from where we can attack. And although fasting or hunger strikes did not correlate with the character of this particular call for action which was  more focused on street graffiti, banners, posters, leaflets etc; I believe that each individual with every one of their circumstances, possibilities and contexts should contribute instances that arise from their memories and seek to generate a projectuality of the conflict.

This is how I have understood this gesture for Angry, as an exercise of combative memory, for although we have only known each other in a tangential manner, we were able to connect via the tensions that mobilize our bodies, via the principles that guide us, each on their own path towards total liberation.

I value these instances but I feel that to be limited to only one type of action, as in this case the visual propaganda, is to mute the potentiality of actions that can be born of impulses and feelings of complicity with Angry that range from how to breathe this dirty air up to the exercise of the nihilistic / anti-authoritarian / anarchic minority violence.

I believe that it is necessary to multiply each of the methods that we have to confront Power, therefore it must be remembered in a practical way how the comrade died – expropriating a bank in rejection of wage-earning work, and how he aspired to live life free and autonomously in direct combat with the values and conventions imposed by the society of domination. That’s why I believe that these moments are opportunities for meeting accomplices and creating informal affinity networks to enrich and nourish us. Well, this is all that I have to say for the time being. A huge hug to those who continue to fight both in the prisons and on the street.

Sebastián Oversluij “Angry” present!

NOTHING HAS ENDED, EVERYTHING CONTINUES
Long Live Anarchy

Missing and waiting for a new meeting with you my brothers and sisters.
