Responding to the call from comrades in Atlanta for an 8/18 day of action in solidarity with the struggle to defend the Atlanta forest; vandals broke into the office complex housing Corporation Service Company’s (CSC) regional office in Roseville, a suburb of Minneapolis. After smashing the office door and throwing cans of paint inside, a message was left sprayed across the front: HANDS OFF THE ATLANTA FOREST.
Demands are being made for CSC to drop their client, Blackhall Studios. Blackhall Studios would like to level the South Atlanta Forest to build the country’s largest soundstage and an airport, creating unprecedented levels of gentrification in the city.

Buenos Aires July 2021
CONSUME UNTIL THE DESERT SURPRISES US
Graffiti painted and locks glued in Havanna stores.
On the “coldest morning of the year” we visited several Havanna coffee shops and managed to intervene on six of their facades. Gluing locks and padlocks, we painted their windows to show that we are not inert, we have the capacity to act and we know that the “traditional” alfajor is sold there with a new ingredient in its recipe: GENETICALLY MODIFIED WHEAT.
Wheat is the food staple in the region; not corn, nor rice, nor cassava. Wheat is the bread, the tortilla, the pasta that we consume daily.

On Friday 9 July in Carahue, a 29-year-old former anthropology student who had joined the Mapuche struggle through CAM (Coordinadora Arauco Malleco), Pablo Marchant, was murdered by a carabiniere with a bullet to the head during an attack on vehicles belonging to the Forestal Mininco forestry company. Far from seeking justice from the murderous state, various radical Mapuche groups from different regions (Biobío, La Araucanía and Los Ríos) immediately set out to keep the ideas of ‘Toño’ alive by attacking companies that exploit water or the forest. In less than a week, the authorities had already counted 44 road blockades, 22 gun attacks on carabinieri patrols or security guards, and 11 arson attacks that had destroyed 39 vehicles (trucks and forestry construction equipment).
Today, 1 August, a little less than a month later, all those who had hoped to reduce these vengeful attacks to an inevitable temporary flare-up of rage and anger for a few days were given a cold shower by the traditional official assessment of the Ministry of the Interior. Not only did the Ministry of the Interior report a 94% increase in “violent acts” in the Mapuche zone (Macrozona Sur) in the first half of 2021, but it also counted more than 150 “attacks” following the murder of Pablo Marchant.

On May 11, at 9:00 p.m., unknown persons arrive on a bicycle at Pérez Valenzuela and Antonio Bellet, in the Providencia district, where a building of the SODEXO food concessionaire is located.
After leaving a suspicious package, they quickly escape, and a few minutes later there is a loud explosion that destroys part of the windows of the building.
GOPE, Labocar and the South Prosecutor’s Office arrived in the area to investigate the attack, which left no injuries, only material damage.
Claim of the “Revolutionary Cells Nicolás Neira”.
OUR COMMON MINIMUM: INSURRECTIONAL ACTION
Since March 22 different subversive and anarchist prisoners have been on hunger strike to demand the repeal of Legislative Decree 321, the freedom of comrade Marcelo Villarroel and the prisoners of the revolt. In this scenario of anti-prison struggle we point out:
1. During the night of Black May 11 and prior to the curfew we detonated an explosive device in front of the SODEXO company for its responsibility in the daily misery that tortures thousands of prisoners in the prisons of the Chilean democracy.

Chile: Mapuche zone ignites after the murder of Pablo Marchant [update]
In the south of Chile, a section of the Mapuche population has been waging a fierce struggle for many years against the large landowners (burning down their villas and occupying their land) as well as against agro-forestry operators, large hydro-electric dams and intensive salmon farms. It was in this context that Pablo Marchant Gutiérrez was murdered on Friday 9 July in Carahue during an attack on the vehicles of the company Forestal Mininco (a subsidiary of the cellulose giant CMPC).
The 29-year-old former anthropology student, who later joined the Mapuche struggle through CAM (Coordinadora Arauco Malleco), was participating in the burning of a minibus, a skidder and a tanker at around 5pm on the Santa Ana-Tres Palos estate when he was shot in the head at close range by carabinieri charged with protecting the interests of the loggers. Another saboteur and an employee were also wounded by bullets in the exchange of fire, and the public prosecutor’s office was quick to speculate that the bullet that sent the latter to hospital came from the M16 held by Pablo Marchant.
