"'GREEN NEMESIS' PROJECT
I. SILENCE IS NOT GOLD.
We break the silence. Our life looks like a frozen product ready to be
sold. We live in the concrete metropolises of your civilization, we
submissively execute the orders of the managers, the bosses, the
superiors, we operate like programmed robots, we breathe the polluted air
of your factories, we wander and die on the high speed highways of your
commodities, we believe in the false avatars of wealth, we desire what the
advertisements command us to desire, we fall in love via screens, we
communicate via keyboards, we imprison ourselves inside walls and
storefronts, serial numbers and barcodes. That's it… We break free from
your prison. We are aware of the fact that everybody talks today about the
financial crisis' curse. The preachers of politics are attempting to
rectify the numbers, to improve statistics, to invent the social formulas
of treatment and promises of salvation.
Nobody mentions, however, that economy, the domination of wealth in social
relationships, is an achievement of civilization that you taught and fed
us with, all these years.
Meanwhile, nobody seems concerned about the murder of nature, the torture
and killing of the animals and generally about the extermination of the
human being itself caused by the totalitarianism of science of technology,
its laboratory experiments, the nuclear energy, the radioactive
'accidents', the GE products, the cannibalism of massive meat production
industry, the pollution of the oceans, the chemical weapons, the genetic
manipulation, the deforestation…
For the time being, we will not comment further on these. We only create
the challenge. We will soon return to talk publicly in order for a
dialogue of actions to be opened.
For the time being, we used the enemy's tools against it. We fed
civilization with the poison it produces.
II. SABOTAGE TO CONTAMINATE THE COMMODITIES OF MASS CONSUMPTION. WAR TO THE MULTINATIONAL MURDERERS
OF COCA-COLA AND NESTLE.
It is one of our objectives to damage the consumers' blind trust to the
products which the multinational companies serve to us. We damage these
companies' financials as they will see many stacks of their products being
withdrawn from the market.
Our desire for action is followed by the need for strategic planning.
We firstly thought of executing a direct action operation against the
factories based on Greece where products of these multinational companies
are packed, stored and are propelled from. However, the planting of
incediary or explosive mechanism would not bring a result as significant
as we would like.
Puzzled by this, we decided to try a method which has never been used in
Greece before. Our action is multiform and me employ every measure and
sabotage technique available as part of our struggle for total liberation.
So, we thought about executing an innovative operation of sabotage which
would practically force all the consumers to boycott these products.
We will pollute the products of these companies with hydrochloric acid and
put them back on the super markets' shelves. So, we warn the consumers to
fully avoid buying those products.
This way we provoke a boycott, not begging for the consumers' 'sensitive
ecological consioussness' but based on the decisiveness of direct action
instead. Our goal is not, in any case, to harm someone who might consume
these mass production commodities, that's why we send this claim of
responsibility before we start placing these products back to the
Specifically, we send two envelopes, one for each of the following mass
media: the first is Zougla.gr website and the other one is Espresso
newspaper. The reason why we choose mainstream media is the nature of our
action itself and not some kind of sympathy towards them. We know very
well, that the mass media is an indispensable part of the system we fight
Since it is not our goal to do harm to someone unsuspected who could
consume these products, we hold responsible the two above-mentioned media
for the immediate publication of our video and the whole text claiming
responsibility without any kind of censorship. Otherwise they will turn
themselves into perpetrators and abettors of the poisoning and possible
death of any unsuspected person, which might fall victim of their economic
deals to satisfy the multinationals – giant customers of theirs
(sponsorships, advertisements). Of course, something like that will not be
forgotten and we will act accordingly against the persons responsible for
In the envelope that we send to you there is 1 USB stick and 1 bottle of
soda. The USB contains this text as well as one video that shows in detail
the procedure we followed to sabotage these products. The bottle is being
sent to verify the credibility of what we say. It is identical with the
ones that we will place back to the shelves and contains exactly the same
quantity of hydrochloric acid that we will insert in the others. All of
them will be sealed like new, with their safety caps, just like the other
regular COCA-COLA and NESTEA products. Have the bottle analyzed to a
chemistry lab to verify the credibility of our warning. In the video we
send to you, we have digitally erased the serial codes on top of NESTEA
caps, as well as other hints that could help the companies identify the
product lots that have been infected. This way they will not be able to
contain the damage by withdrawing only these specific lots, instead they
will be force to withdraw all of them during the period of our action.
Four days after we have sent these envelopes we will start placing the
infected products back on the shelves. Our action will last exactly 10
days. The choice of this period is not random. On the contrary, these are
the days during which the profits of these multinationals soar. So, for 10
days, we will place back 63 plastic 500 ml bottles of Coca-cola light and
42 plastic 500 ml bottles of various flavors of NESTEA. Our action will
take place in the metropolises of Athens and Thessaloníki.
The bottles will be placed back to all types of stores selling these
products. All of these bottles contain 100 of hydrochloric acid solution.
We chose hydrochloric acid because at this proportion the colors of
COCA-COLA and NESTEA remain unchanged, in contrast with other substances
like chlorine etc.
As shown in the video we used a sharp metallic object to remove the caps,
maintaining their safety intact. Then we took out 100 ml of each product
and inserted 100 ml of hydrochloric acid. Finally we put the caps back
carefully, so as not to break the safety. So we have infected COCA-COLA
and NESTEA bottles with no signs of breach. We say it again to make
ourselves clear. Our goal is the withdrawal of these products by the
companies for as long as our action goes on. We ask everyone to completely
avoid these products so as not to create any danger for his/her health.
Our goal is economic sabotage, not the poisoning of any unsuspected
Now that we made ourselves clear as far as our action is concerned, we
will take some space to explain the reasons why we chose those two
It is a fact that we live in the era of information. The things that we
will briefly mention are neither state secrets nor hidden knowledge. They
are facts that anyone can learn about through a simple search on the
internet, where all the information can be obtained. What we lack is the
intention to ask ourselves about what is going on around us, how do we
live, what it is that we eat and drink, what do we finance with our
spending. It is a fact that we live in the era of the multinationals'
dictatorship. Their penetration into every aspect of our life is clear. No
matter how many different names they present to us, it is a fact the the
economic interests of a few dozen of multinationals make the world go
around. In particular, 10 companies have overwhelming control over the
world food market. Behind thousands of different labels some multinational
giants are being 'hidden', not only controlling our desires but also
creating them and guiding them according to their strategies. All these
might sound too distant, without the harmless aesthetics of emotional
documentaries and close-ups to starving children, without the
accompaniment of some dramatic music. But they are true.
To be more specific…
III. DEATH IN A BOTTLE.
COCA-COLA is a product first made at the end of the 19th century in the
USA. It is, from an economic point of view, the most valuable brand in the
world. It is the company that managed to create, for commercial purposes,
the stereotype of a Santa Claus dressed in red, and that's the image that
everyone has now in mind. The company’s history is dirty and the same goes
for all multinational companies. It had an excellent cooperation with the
Nazi Germany and Hitler, bulding factories there, before World War II
Its cooperation with the apartheid regime in South Africa was excellent as
well, for many years, showing no interest, not even as an excuse, about
what was going on there. It operates hundreds of factories around the
world and is known for the inhuman treatment, as an employer, towards
thousands of workers. It is responsible for the murders of combative
syndicalists in Colombia and Guatemala. In China it cooperates with the
regime and makes profit out of forced labor, using prisoners that are
forced to work inside prison. More over, it is one the 12 most polluting
companies in the country as far as the environment and the aquifer are
concerned. In Mexico it has polluted huge areas with industrial waste as
well water sources used by indigenous people. In El Salvador it takes
advantage of 10.000 working children harvesting plantations to produce
sugar for its products. In India its dozen of factories are polluting huge
water resources consumed by the locals, and the same happens in Kenya,
while 1.4 billion people have no access to clean water. Multinational
companies like COCA-COLA and NESTLE make 60 billion in net profit selling
bottled water. COCA-COLA has used genetically modified organisms to
produce ingredients for its products. There have been hundreds of cases
where COCA-COLA products coming out of the factory contain poisonous
It is no coincidence that in Greece, some time ago, 100,000 bottles of
COCA-COLA were withdrawn, because they contained herbicide in large
amounts. Another incident that received small media attention, although a
public prosecutor intervened in the case. However, another COCA-COLA
batch, which was packed in the factory located in Crete, was also
withdrawn due to the detection of foreign elements inside the bottles.
Obviously one of the biggest multinationals in the world, which provides
money for all massive media through advertisements and sponsorships, makes
always sure, that these withdrawals will happen secretly, in order to
avoid the image of its products being damaged. We are not naive enough to
think, that the succinct reference of some of the thousands of bloody
incidents, which are intertwined with the history of COCA-COLA, will
capture the filth of this multinational in its fullness. We just give some
food for thought, so that everyone can ask themselves, what is hidden
behind the most famous plastic bottle in the world. How much human and
nature exploitation can fit in there…
NESTLE is a multinational company, based in Switzerland, which began
operating in the beginning of the 20th century. It employs about 330,000
workers and it is the most profitable company in the world. It owns 450
factories in 80 countries and thousands of smaller companies, bought
throughout the last century, belong to it. NESTLE is also the main
shareholder of L’OREAL. That is, of the greater cosmetics firm, entangled
in thousands of cases of torture and killing of animals during experiments
on 'aesthetic beauty'. NESTLE, has been targeted by various organizations,
which accuse the company of having committed one of the biggest crimes
ever committed by a food company. It is held responsible for the death of
1.5 million children in the Third World every year, due to its commercial
manipulations and moves. To some this may seem too much. We will explain
this briefly and at the same time we urge you to check the dozens of
relevant articles in the internet, where everyone can find these clues.
These children's deaths are caused by the systematic discourage of the use
of breast milk by the infants' mothers.
Using vast amounts of money, which are presented as sponsorships and
donations, NESTLE, 'convinces' doctors to promote its own breast milk
substitutes. This tactic, which is applied to various 'underdeveloped'
countries, results in many people preferring NESTLE's products,
considering them to be safer than breast milk. In these countries,
however, the water resources are often contaminated. Thus, NESTLE's
products are dissolved in water, which is unsuitable for infants, causing
ultimately death to many of them. A strategy, which exploits, for profit's
sake, the lack of knowledge and human misery, becomes the moral
perpetrator for millions of child deaths.
Apart from these, NESTLE is the company, which officially uses genetically
modified organisms in its products, in the whole USA. It's a company
exploiting more than 300.000 children worldwide, by employing them to work
on its cacao plantations. It's the company behind numerous food scandals,
like the most recent case, where contaminated horse meet was detected
inside its products. This company is also entangled in a scandal, where
melamine was detected inside milk packages in China, in 2008 and also in a
scandal, where the deadly E.COLI bacteria was detected inside its products
in USA, in 2009. This company also uses, among other large multinationals
(PEPSI etc.), ΗΕΚ 293 ( Human Embryonic Kidney 293 cells). SENOMYX, a
company cooperating with NESTLE, selectively uses cells taken from unborn
fetuses, which are results of abortions, in order to create isolated
flavor receptors and to enrich its synthetic and plastic products. This
means, that they promote the use and the consumption of human cells, taken
from the kidneys of unborn fetuses, as taste enhancers.
Beyond that, one of the main reasons we chose NESTLE, are the innumerable
experiments they do on animals, especially in order to produce NESTEA.
They use lab animals, in order for the beneficial effects of tea to be
scientifically proved. In this way, they conduct dozens of experiments on
animals, which they afterward kill. In one of these experiments, they
inject toxic chemicals into the bodies of lab animals, in order to
dissolve the cells that produce insulin, causing them diabetes. Then, they
force feed them with tea ingredients and record the effects before they
In another experiment, they cause brain damages to lab animals. Then, they
force feed them with green tea ingredients to record these effects too. In
order to make the scientists' job easier, they stimulate lab animals using
electrocution, while they are placed in dark cages. They kill and torture
in dozens of ways and all this because these experiments allow them to
claim that NESTEA benefits the consumers' health. So many souls suffer, in
order for the consumer to be convinced that the product has beneficial
effects. Sick people called scientists are behind these experiments. The
only thing they deserve, is a bullet between the eyes.
But, as we said, we do not want the role of a simple recorder of the
morbidity of the scientific minds and the strategy of these
multinationals. Our goal is sabotage and destruction by any means, for
total liberation. We break the stereotypes. Being actively involved and
attacking at companies, which exploit nature and the environment, is not a
fashion. We are not 'sensitive' individuals denying violence, like hippies
and pacifist environmentalists. We dislike such passive individuals.
Violence is an integral part of our life and destruction is not just a
revolutionary action. The insurrection through violence, is the increase
of pleasure in our life. We are part of a new anarchist current of thought
We use our imagination to create the nightmares of this civilized,
murderous society. We don't seek popular support for our actions. Of
course, the society as a whole will never be uncritically our target, but
this has already been clarified in the writings of dozens of our cells
throughout the world and by our comrades of FAI and CCF, who are
IV. PROJECT 'GREEN NEMESIS'.
This action marks the beginning of a new project of coordination of
informal affinity groups and FAI cells, under the name 'GREEN NEMESIS'. We
call comrades and direct action cells from all over the world to conspire
and coordinate, in order to avenge and sabotage companies and individuals,
that with their actions exploit the environment, wild life and nature. All
means are welcome.
For us, the best tactic is to attack with paint, fire and bombs at
factories, power plants, and genetic laboratories. To sabotage the smooth
circulation of goods, that builds the dictatorship of the multinational
companies – killers and to spend our bullets on their managers.
With 'GREEN NEMESIS' project we mark the beginning of a dialogue of
praxis, on the perspective of New Anarchy and the anti-civilization
tension. We make criticism to the ideological brakes of the respect for
the human life (even for the one of our enemies) that possess some ALF
cells worldwide, in order to abolish them. For us, our attacks shouldn't
be limited in destroying building infrastructure. Those who poison
animals, should be executed with the same way. We should feed them their
poison. Overall, it is important not to neglect to target the physical
existence of the institutions (managers, scientists, law advisers etc.)
So, 'GREEN NEMESIS' project is a moment of connection between parallel
paths of struggle. It is the meeting point of anarcho-nihilists and
Away from romantic ideals and pleas for ecological rights, new anarchist
guerrilla is the art of the potential.
Because the war against the exploitation of nature doesn't mean the
passive boycott by alternative consumerism. Neither a vegetarian diet for
health purposes or because of a hypocritical sensitivity for animal
slaughter. It means attack and destruction of every company that destroys
the earth, human, animals and nature.
Ecological conscience is a masked lie, when divided form new anarchist
FAI (Informal Anarchist Federation) opens up a new perspective, inviting
the comrades of the anti-civilization tension and the direct action cells
of ELF and ALF to perform a general international revenge and attack
against the ones, who murder our lives. Through the international
cooperation and coordination of FAI, we move invisibly through the
techno-industrial metropolis and we become more dangerous…
Every action, that will be part of 'GREEN NEMESIS', will be another
contribution to the conversation we start. A conversation for the creation
of the anti-civilization tension within the circles of FAI and the Black
International of the anarchists of praxis.
This is only the beginning…
Until the liberation of us all…
We dedicate this action to all FAI and CCF cells around the globe. Our
action is also an answer to the international solidarity call for the
comrades Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar. The comrades are held
captives in Spain, accused for bombing attacks.
We send our solidarity to comrades Marco Camenisch and Gabriel Pombo da
Silva and to the anarchist prisoners in South America.
Solidarity to Mario Gonzalez, who is on hunger strike and imprisoned in
Lastly, in Greece we salute the 10 imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of
Cells of Fire, comrade Andreas Tsavdaridis, who is a member of FAI and
comrade Spyros Mandylas, who is prosecuted for the same case.
Comrades you are not alone. The sun will continue to rise…
Nothing is over, everything begins now…
Long live New Anarchy
Until total liberation
