Another ATM damaged

An ATM in Jogjakarta belonging to the Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI) was set on fire on October 7.
Police are investigating.
According to reports, a message was left at the scene.  A rough English translation follows:

State-corporation-police-military are the real terrorists. “Social insurgency will always continue [as] the sun continues to shine”.

This time we tell you that what we have done is the culmination of our anxiety and anger towards the system.

The very system that worships money, the system that disturbs society with television, so for them to buy things they don’t need so they will continue to work like machines.

The system that forces us and others in society to lose the control of our own life. The system that gives advantage to the bourgeois, the businessmen and the state bureaucrats who have become their allies.

To us, this is not the time to be silent, not the time to watch the television and say that “everything is okay”.

For every oppressions in West Papua. For every oppressions in Kulonprogo. For every historical oppressions in Aceh. For every oppressions in Wera, Bima. For every forced evictions and land grabs in Takalar and Pandan Raya in Makassar.

For every oppressions against our friends who struggle. For Tukijo and other social combatants behind the bars just because they are fighting for their rights. For every concession [sic] in the forest which will destroy the bio diversity in the name of money and business!

And for every prisons that must be burned down flattened to the ground! So long as the state and capitalism remain, THERE WILL BE NO PEACE BETWEEN THOSE WHO HAVE AND THOSE WHO HAVE NOT.

Attacks against financial centres: ATM, banks, corporate buildings are important targets [sic], because they are collaborators that cause the suffering on earth. This is not terrorism because we do not advocate for attack against people.

Terorrism is war between states. Terrorism is [when] rice and foodstuff in your kitchen deplete. Terrorism is uniformed assholes who carry their guns everywhere. Terrorism is the slaughter of the have nots.

So we say: enough! And this is also for you! Those combatants who never give up in their struggle out there, even if you have to be prisoned because of your belief in freedom: Conspiracy cell of fire (Greece), Chile combatants: Tortuga! Lives on! Gabriel Pombo da Silva, Thomas Meyer Falk (Germany) Polikarpus Georgiadis, Revolutionary Straggle! [sic] Respect to combatants from Manado, Makassar and Bandung, you are the inspiration among the helplessness of society and their uncertain life.

“Let the fire burn inside the darkness!” Long Live Luciano Tortuga Cell – International Revolutionary Front – FAI.
