For us, sabotage of capitalist urban infrastructure – we call it “volcanology” because some groups refer to volcanoes as effective means in blocking air traffic - is just one part of a political strategy that hopes for social change by repealing system functionality. It is neither enough nor possible to “hit” the enemy accurately, when the whole system doesn't work properly. Volcanological acts of sabotage want to block societal conditions as such by repealing infrastructure of capitalistic cities while developing real social relations and structures. In capitalist metropolis exists no inside or outside, we do not stand outside and declare who is the right enemy inside. The enemy is everywhere and nowhere. Instead of searching for the headquarters, we have to start to stop playing the whole game of normality. Headquarters (NSA, military lobbyists, deportation agencies etc.) are walling themselves off from democratic or militant interventions. If we stop functioning ourselves, their power would decrease immediately.
We are happy that there have been similar actions, e.g. in Bristol, Belgium, France, and we would welcome an transnational discussion.
The global chains of production and exploitation begin and end in our capitalist cities (from design, copyrights, patents etc. to consuming, profits, managing the cash flows etc.). We can attack the infrastructure which is necessary to connect the chain links. For example, the attack of the “Magma Action Group” on the Hamburg Harbor hit the goods transport logistics. We are looking forward to continuing and expanding these actions. Broadly. On a massive scale. Uncontrolled. Well considered. Without borders. Internationalistic.
In that respect. A volcano group.
