Thirty-Ninth Communique of the Individualists Tending Toward the Wild

Following the latest criticisms and responses that the anarchic nuns have spit out to people to defend their anarchist “comrades” who live in Chile along with us, we want to express some irrefutable points to situate the debate a bit.

We would like to speak of an “insurrectionary anarchist affinity group of tension,” or whatever they call themselves, that made amoral indiscriminate attack their own. FINALLY THEY ENTERED INTO OUR MADNESS! Or rather, they did so some time ago, and now they want to resurface.

Another mandatory PSA

Well, looks like our favorite muppet and basement dweller Scott Campbell decided to draw out the already tiresome fatwa against ITS and everyone he doesn’t like. So just really quickly:

Scottie either thinks we’re working for Interpol or that Interpol should be breaking down Abe Cabrera’s door because he’s the “official spokesperson” for ITS. After all, “fair is fair”, that’s what they did to the ELF supporters back last decade… well, here’s the thing, Atassa is a literary project. We aren’t getting secret messages from ITS, and no eco-extremist activity occurs within the borders of the United States of America. So the reason no one has busted our doors down yet is because, wait for it… the First Amendment. You know, the same laws you hope protect you when you publish stuff on your website about sabotage and vandalism (which you seem to receive from “anonymous contributors,” but we won’t say much about that.) That didn’t stop you from getting kicked off of Patreon though. I know, so sad.

If you really want to know how we are the spokespeople for ITS, we will share with you our super-secret, highly technologically advanced manner of communicating with them. You ready? Here we go:

  1. Open a browser of your choice.
  2. Open http://maldicionecoextremista.altervista.org/
  3. See if they posted anything new today.
  4. Translate it if we feel like it, or if we think it’s cool.

Alright, lock us up. I’m mentally prepared to disappear into an Eastern European black site and be tortured by the non-stop playing of Taylor Swift albums and sleep deprivation.

So Scottie, either come out and say it: Do you think we’re cops, or should the cops arrest us for material support for terrorism? Maybe you need to make some phone calls.

As for the rest, we’re misanthropes and we don’t care. But we try to create some sweet, sweet memes.

No automatic alt text available.

With Wild Nature on our side (yeah, we know that triggers you).

-Abe Cabrera

Call for submissions (sort of)

Atassa 2 is likely to be released the end of this year / beginning of next year. Do you have an idea? Do you want your name (pseudonym) in print? Do you want people to hate your guts because you write in defense of a bunch of murderous psychopaths? Do you have Daddy issues? Can you string together a few sentences? Drop us a line: atassa@protonmail.com

We prefer prose over poetry. In fact, unless you’re the Second Coming of Robinson Jeffers, we would prefer no poetry at this point, but you could always try. We’ll print anything if it’s good and on topic. We don’t have any themes for this issue, and we like to be surprised.

We have a soft deadline of November 1st, 2017. Please don’t send strange files, or we’ll just delete them (especially if we don’t know who you are). You can write letters to the editor too I guess. Ideally, you would just send a submission in the body of your email. You can also leave a submission in the contact box if on the run from Interpol or whatever, we understand. For starters, you can send us some sort of abstract of what you think you would like to work on, and if you are comfortable with us contacting you concerning your submission. If not, we will weigh all submissions on their content and merits.

Happy writing folks! Let’s make it a good one!

38th Communique of the Individualists Tending Toward the Wild

I. The dream

I had a dream where anarchism had the appearance of a human being.

Yes, it was precisely like a normal person with a head, legs, arms… All that is needed.

In the dream that I had anarchism died.

Suddenly, an accursed silent illness took hold of him, without symptoms. One day it knocked on his door and took him away.

Just like that.

Without time to act, understand, try…

Without escape.

Without warning.

No call beforehand.

Death did its job, turned around, and kept going down its path.

Not even a word, a gesture, a glance weighed with meaning.

Nothing.

II. Waking up.

Upon waking up, I realized it was a dream and I began to think.

Strange connections, reflections, cerebral impulses…

And afterwards I laughed.

My laughter became uncontainable, profound, full. Almost inconvenient.

It was a laughter so strong that tears filled my eyes and my sides moved.

You will ask why this reaction. That’s understandable.

Well, in my dream, Death treated anarchism (with the appropriate small “a”), exactly like all things and people.

Death acted and afterward continued to carry out its affairs.

Without conceding any privileges.

And while anarchism was dying without a burial, it continued the effort concerning its why and its debates, the comparisons, the propositions, morality, objective, resources, times, the interminable assembly, forms, and the whole catalogue of idiocies that, effectively, were not anything more than the same disease that was killing it.

Indignant, anarchism asked for solidarity from all places.

Anarchism, unsettled, was not able to resign itself: it was dying without anyone telling it, not even a sign or an indication, nothing.

And all the while all of this occurred. And no one cared.

Or better put, no one was interested.

So many years of history, so many battles, an honorable militancy on the global scene only to die under such banal circumstances, in the midst of general indifference.

And this guy who in my dream represented anarchism, he was livid.

And you won’t believe why.

In that extreme moment he had to get livid due to his unforeseen disappearance, for the manner in which his death was manifested: nothing epic, nothing heroic, no police frame-up or life sentence, nothing- or why no one was noticing its death.

Anarchism was dying anonymously, angry, amidst general indifference.

III. Epilogue

In these times, to dream with the anarchism, truly one has to overdo it at the bar or have ingested some natural or synthetic herb.

In any case when the mind has been freed and savagely separates itself from the civilizing control of reason, this makes the masks fall away and reveals, behind the dreams, the more inconfessable realities.

Friends, anarchy has died.

In general indifference.

It died from an excess of morality.

I know this now, it makes one laugh to the point of tears.

No one misses it.

Thirty-Seventh Communique of the Individualists Tending Toward the Wild

Stealthy like the puma, on Monday August 7th we boarded a bus transporting masses and herds. We look at the faces of the passengers: there are 8 or 9 of them, and they all have the same face. They are all dominated by dirty society, worn down from the work that gives them artificial progress and false comfort. We don’t feel sorry for them, they’re all the same. They disgust us, their very existence perpetuates the same hyper-civilized society that enslaves them, the one that destroyed the natural state. This society annihilated our ancestors who did know how to live in the wild.

We carried a contraption with us. We had tested it before, leaving nothing to chance. It’s simple: two bottles filled with gasoline, a boiling mixture, a bulb, a clock with modifications that gave us time, and a switch as the safety. We left it under a seat and we sat in the back. We calculated the time and got off before it went off. Even though people were not burned, the damage we caused was more than what was expected. This time luck with on our side: the fire reached the electrical wires and lit a business on fire that turned out to be a hardware store!! Three birds with one stone: the Transantiago bus, the power line, and the store where more machines and chemical products were sold! Attention, the next ones could be those who use them!

This time the place we attacked was planned so that it coincided with an avenue where they are building a new corridor of the Transantiago and new metro lines, where more vehicles that carry imbeciles will occupy spaces that once were wild. This time it was the north of the city, before it was in Providencia, tomorrow it could be in any part of this dirty capital that we choose.

And lastly… No press, it was not a malfunction of the bus, don’t be stupid… this time more direct in the eye! No police-prosecutors-judges-government-whatever, don’t use the cliché statement, “causes that are still being investigated”. You were no match for the dudes from ITS-HMB, nor for the S.I…. now you don’t want to open more cases that you won’t be able to solve. This was our work and we take responsibility for it. Come at us from wherever, you won’t find us. Look for us on you security cameras, you won’t find us there because there were none. We planned this well and we aren’t prepared to transform ourselves into symbols, we would rather die first. We are already in hiding, stalking other prey.

Vengeance! The wekufes accomany us, and the darkness keeps us.

War against human progress!

Sincere complicity! Long live the Mafia of Extremist Individualists!

Clarification by Maldición Eco-extremista

As we published a piece which touched on the veracity of ITS’ action in Mexico, here we gratefully publish a translation of their clarifying note to their translation of our piece. Hopefully this clears things up.

On this text we would like to comment on some things. ITS-Mexico has been involved in a long polemic in comparison with previous years, one in which its discourse as well as its acts have been questioned. This has been the case in particular concerning if it is truly responsible for the murders committed from 2011 onward. In some cases the evidence fabricated by authorities has centered on demonstrating that recent ITS acts were committed by others. This is understandable since in a place like Mexico City and similar area where ITS is present, authorities tend to cover up the truth of some truly remarkable criminal acts that have become a daily occurrence. For example, some weeks ago, the southern part of the city was struck with narco-blockades in different important roadways after the death of one of the leaders of the Tlahuac Cartel (an organization that the authorities have always denied exists). As a consequence, a wave of police response was unleashed, the army and Marines were called out to the scene, and there were street battles with cartel assassins with high caliber rifles. This is something that occurs in places like Sinaloa, Tamaulipas, Chihuahua, Guerrero, Michoacán, etc. Even the Head of Government (who has aspirations to be President of the Republic), in order to not lose popularity, continues until now to deny the influence and importance that the drug cartels have in Mexico City. The same could be said of ITS. The authorities deny that they are terrorists, they deny that there are terrorist groups operating in the capital, and they minimize those types of threats (like they minimized the Tlahuac Cartel) so that afterwards they have egg on their face. Another example from here is that the Capital prosecutor, Edmundo Garrido, told the media that the package-bomb that exploded on an elderly man in the northern Mexico City on July 14th of this year was not a terrorist attack. What would the same radio audience think if the media had reported on the ITS group’s act?

Communique of the Wildfire Cell / Nocturnal Pyromaniac Fraction

Received via our contact form

I

Several months have passed since the Wildfire Cell (at the end of its previous phase) signed its last communique, and while we do not give any “justifications” for our motives, we feel it is worthwhile to point out that we have maintained this period of silence for purely strategic reasons.

Anyway, we have already made it clear enough that we have not claimed responsibility for every attack which we have carried out. As well as being a tactical choice in order to continue and intensify our chaotic and criminal projects without leaving so many identifiable traces for the hounds of civilized law and order, we speak of things only when it makes sense for us and pleases us to do so.

However, given some recent events, we individuals feel it is time to say a few things, and it would seem that a few things will have to be repeated for the miserable idiots who we will be addressing shortly.
