Twenty-Sixth Communique of the Individualists Tending Toward the Wild
“Nature works wisely and without thinking… It does not recognize political borders, it situates new beings on the globe and contemplates the free play of forces that work upon them. At that point it overcomes by its push and character. It concedes the supreme “right” to existence… Eternal Nature inexorably takes vengeance on the sin of its enemies.
I. Opening greeting
“We have seen the horrors of civilization, and each one of us felt in our hearts that liberation by itself would never be sufficient.”
“All of their symbols will fall. Their prayers, their idols, they will fall, for the imminent catastrophe of civilization, by the revenge in the name of our ancestors, and in the name of all the wild that inhabits and has inhabited the earth. No prayer will save them from the attack undertaken by animist heretics.”
Our hearts fill with joy every time we read words of complicity from those who have shaken off disgusting complacent humanism filled with the old political ideologies. These accomplices have decided to ferociously confront civilization in all of its disturbing expressions: cars, communications towers, trains, churches, etc. often with cold hearts and without concern for legal consequences. They have used bullets and knives against the flesh of the hyper-civilized.
This War is Extremist, without hesitation, without quarter, without aspiring to “social change.” It rejects the demand for “revolution” in this era, a practice buried by the corpses of its defenders and propagandists.
II. Preliminary reflection: ITS and the FAI
“The only thing that should be at the forefront of this war are sincere acts of persons who truly appreciate and decide to act unto the ultimate consequences in the extremist defense of wild nature. Only that, no group is either in the vanguard, or rearguard.” (1)
That’s what we stated during our Wild Reaction stage, and we continue to hold this position. ITS is only an expression of a complex war, carried out by valued individualists who have united in this international project, to generate the greatest amount of damage that we can to all of this shit.
ITS is not a vanguard, it’s not a “front,” it’s not the leader of groups or individuals. Since 2011, the only thing ITS has done is extend its network, spreading the hate that we feel for the artificial with words and actions to unsettled minds , as well as that profound love for Wild Nature to all those who have felt our stated words to be their own.
ITS is not a “confederation” of “primitivists” of “direct action.” We do not defend “informality,” nor do we posit a “new form of organization.” ITS is a Mafia, a Secret Society, a Clan of select individuals chosen to form part of an international group that aims at destabilization, destruction, the execution of attacks and indiscriminate and selective murders against the Other.
For this reason ITS has not made “open calls” so that others take up its initials as they see fit. From the beginning we have NOT hoped that this “takes off” in a direction that does not satisfy us. In other words, we aren’t the Informal Anarchist Federation (FAI). Even if in the past we took some examples from this organization to sharpen our own, we do not base ourselves entirely on the FAI, and this is more than clear. To be more concrete, we think that this Federation is now obsolete, its time has passed, and all that is left of it are crumbs of what it was in its prime, even if some attempt to take it out of the tomb of history.
It’s regrettable what the FAI has become: from being one of the most impotent organizations (mainly in Italy, Greece, Mexico, and Chile), it gave life to anarchist projects that reverberated in the social-political-economic sphere from 2010 to 2014. Today, the FAI is only a pretext for some to raise the most putrid, sterile, and aberrant flags of the social anarchists, and the perfect pretext to cover up poisonous police strategies of “criticisms of tension.”
“[…] Here in the road, the harpies, disguise hypocrisy in courtesy
The “nature” of the FAI was antisocial individualism and the criticism against the sleeping masses. It was not an organization of “defense of the oppressed people,” as some try to disguise it now. And we would dare to say that the FAI (in Italy and elsewhere) was in many cases (above all in the package-bombs) indiscriminate and selective.
One only need to look back and notice that what we are saying is not totally off-base.
How can we erase from our heads that recognizable simultaneous package-bomb attack against various targets in Switzerland, Greece, and Italy in March 2011? Here two employees of the Swissnuclear company in Olten, Switzerland were wounded upon opening the package. Even though the wounds were minor, they drew blood nonetheless (2). A more selective attack was the package bomb that gravely wounded a lieutenant colonel in the Ruspoli military barracks in Livorno, Italy, which resulted in five amputated fingers and bloody wounds on the face and legs. (3)
In this case, some would argue that the FAI could have placed more explosive material in the package sent to the officer than that which was sent to the nuclear facility, where it was certain that a certain “inoffensive” secretary would open it and not the executive. In any case, the attack in itself does not lose its terrorist face, it does not lack the seal of the wounds it caused, and its nature does not cease being indiscriminate and selective.
The same could be said concerning its package-bomb attack in December 2010 against the embassies of Chile and Switzerland in Rome, Italy, for which the FAI also took responsibility (4). Here the wounded were consular employees and not the chief representatives of the embassies. Did the FAI apologize for the wounds of the “poor” secretaries? NO. Why would they, if these acts developed into an open war against consular targets and against what they represented for their solidarity strategy with aligned prisoners in those countries?
Here is where we start to make things uncomfortable, and it is because in order to place our eco-extremist gaze upon these PAST events, it is necessary to try to understand the hypocrisy of some in the PRESENT. For there were some at that moment who supported those actions, since they were being carried out by anarchists, sure. They supported the letter-bombs that arrived at the embassies and that wounded employees, but they now are scandalized when they hear about US, the eco-extremists, wounding bystanders or employees in the same way that the FAI did some summers back. What’s that all about then? With all of those who are firmly two-faced about this, do they not remember that the CCF also wounded an employee of an express courier service in Athens in 2010? (5) This even though they were “careful” to always advise the police before detonating an explosive so that the targets could be evacuated. That’s because any attack with explosives or fire, even an armed attack, is always a roll of a dice. You can never guarantee the security of bystanders and even if the target to be attacked has been thoroughly studied, the unexpected can never be anticipated.
III. Anarchist hands with innocent blood on them
After reading that, maybe some will say that modern anarchists are lacking “unnecessary” casualties when compared to us. They will say that we are defaming them. But if one gets over historical amnesia one will see that modern anarchists (like us) have “innocent” blood on their hands. (“Innocent” as this hated civilized society calls it.) But they have dead and wounded also on their conscience (or maybe not anymore). For all those who talk shit about the dead and wounded we have caused in Mexico, maybe they don’t remember the mailman wounded by the package-bomb sent to the Sub-Secretariat of the Penitentiary System in 2012 (6)? No one claimed responsibility for this attack, but it was also a clear example of “propaganda of the deed.” Or the 12 workers burned during a fire in a store in Iztapalapa that CCF-Mexico took responsibility for the same year? (7) Only in the second case did CCF in Mexico state that their intention was not to harm civilians, but the burned skin of the workers of that personal hygiene product store is permanent (8). We don’t condemn these attacks with their respective collateral damage (on the contrary, they pleased us at that moment). We only use these examples to quiet the arguments of the “new school” in Mexico which today criticizes our methods thinking that modern anarchist groups are the embodiment of “nobility” and “cleanliness” of action. These people are profoundly mistaken.
The same can be said of certain anarchos who are talking shit about us in Chile. These anarchos think they are morally superior, (some) presuming that in their contemporary history there have never been “unnecessary” dead or wounded. In believing this they consider themselves so “revolutionary,” and classify us as “counter-revolutionary,” as if that term scared us. They slam our brother clan ITS-Chile as “irresponsible” when they found out about the attack against Landerretche, his little daughter afflicted with audial trauma. What disgusting double morality! Maybe they don’t remember the amputated and wounded victims from CCF-Chile’s 2014 attack on the Santiago Metro? (9) Or maybe they forgot about the poor dead victim from the detonation of a fire extinguisher the same year, where they even found pamphlets with anarchist “demands” on them? (10) Or will they say that the wounded and dead are just a ruse?
Yes, this goes for you too, Joaquín García. A little while ago you decided to have a go at our accomplices who are making a name for themselves in the Southern continent (11). You spewed your bile and talked your leftist-revolutionary shit, how disgusting. Keep in mind that not even 200 “insurrecto” bombs in Chile could cause the same impact as only one package-bomb of the Proud “Mystical Horde of the Forest.” You think that the eco-extremist menace will be stopped by your sterile calls to the “anarchist community” to exclude us for their circles? Ha! Not even the best prosecutors, nor the most capable police, nor the intelligence officials, nor the experts, nor the security cameras, nor the media broadcasting lies, nor the new laws against “individual terrorism,” nor faulting the imprisoned for the bombings during their visits, much less the “revolutionaries,” no one will stop this because the seed has sprouted. You can cut the tree down but the roots remain. Let that be clear! So come up with another strategy Joaquín because writing your little letters from your cell isn’t getting you results against us “counter-revolutionaries.” Oh, I know, why don’t you try punching more old people, which is what you do best. We all know you can’t flee very well. When you get out of the clink maybe we can contract you out to hit that senile hippy Zerzan. It should be a piece of cake to hit him and you’re sure to find him riding his bike in the parks in Oregon...
Getting back to our main topic, we conclude that the only big problem here and the only reason people criticize our actions is because we, the eco-extremists, rejoice in the indiscriminate wounds that we cause. We don’t ask forgiveness from anyone for what we do since we don’t answer to anyone. Not to a larger organization (as in the case of the FAI when some member does something against the “general values” and is severely criticized). We aren’t slaves to humanist values and morality, nor to a politically correct position that dictates to us “how things should be done.” We formulate the attacking for pleasure. We rejoice that our package-bomb, our explosive, or fire wound or put more than one in danger. A smile crosses our faces when digging our blade into our target or hearing the deafening mortal shot. This is a WAR against civilization, this is not a game for children.
ITS will stop at nothing. We don’t make warning calls after planting an explosive as CCF does in Greece. We detonate it and that’s it. We have no consideration for society, we forget about the noble standards of not “wounding innocents.” We are proud that our method has spread and that others have taken it as their own. At the end of the day, this is all for the annihilation of moral progress, so that we can dance over the disgusting corpse of repulsive humanism,
IV. Speaking specifically of methodology
This is, what is the sending of a package-bomb if not an indiscriminate and selective method of attack?
There are an abundance of examples of this. The die is cast in each attack. It would seem that the method of the parcel-bomb is more indiscriminate than selective. This is because the terrorist cannot be absolutely sure that the intended target will open it, or if the intended person or someone else will cross its path.
The method was indiscriminate when a university worker opened the first parcel-bomb in April 2011. The worker, instead of giving it to the nanotechnologist for whom the package was intended, decided to open it himself and lost an eye. (12)
It was selective when two technological scientists of Tec de Monterrey opened it in the comfort of their office. It detonated and left them gravely wounded in August 2011. (13)
Another selective attack occurred when a representative of the Human Rights Investigative Unit opened the parcel and was wounded in July 2015. (14)
Another attack in November 2015 was at the same time indiscriminate and selective when a rancher of the National Council of Agriculture opened a package next to his secretary and the two were wounded in the incident. (15)
It was tremendously indiscriminate and selective when Landerretche opened his present in his own house and it wounded him, his daughter, and the maid just this past January 2017. (16)
And what about all of those other parcel-bombs that weren’t ours? Certainly they had the same intentions. They have either wounded their target or they haven’t. They have also struck “innocent” people, “defenseless workers,” and “civilians” who had nothing to do with the intended target. We can cite the example of the FAI in Italy in 2003, but to not go that far back into the past, the secretary of the IMF wounded in Paris some days ago (17) is a prime example of this.
We conclude this point affirming that it is inevitable to plan to leave civilians unharmed while employing this method. The humanist anarchists who criticize indiscriminate and selective attacks of the eco-extremists will have to think this one through and not just talk for the sake of talking.
V. Silenced for the moment…
It’s clear that after it was made known that ITS was responsible for the fabulous attack against the head of Codelco, many things would change. This is above all the case once people realized that ITS originated in Mexico but had rapidly spread to Chile, Argentina, and Brazil. Interpol has already collected all the information that it could from the Internet about our Mafia. Perhaps they are on our tail and they’ve already scolded the Mexican government for letting things get this far. In the Chilean media a sociologist with expertise in security stated, “if there has been an escalation of violence from this group (ITS), there is a serious problem with the intelligence system.” How funny, she gets it...
For that reason there is a concerted effort by the media to cover up what we’ve done and what we take responsibility for. And that’s just not us being paranoid. Why did they cover up the attack against the Plano Piloto bus station that ITS-Brazil took responsibility for in January? (18) Was it because it was near the location where its brother clan detonated a pressure cooker bomb in the Conjunto Nacional Shopping Center in August of last year? (19) Why did the Chilean media say nothing about what the “Mystical Horde of the Forest” declared in the 21st communique published a little more than a month after the terrorist attack? (20) Why did the media not hold its typical macabre feast with the news of the assassinated Vice-Rector of the Tec de Monterrey, for which a new ITS group in northern Mexico took responsibility in March? (21) Maybe those three cases are just coincidence? We doubt it.
Be that as it may, ITS will not stop. We will keep waging war against civilization, its sickening artificiality, and its asphyxiating technology. We will keep mocking it boring moral values and violating the imposed legal norms as we have done for some time now. For, “the warrior is, in essence, condemned to keep going.”
Our ancestors have taught us to become stalking animals. They have passed down to us the glory of taking a life and wounding our enemies. Confrontation drives us on and the land of the dead awaits us proud that we have continued the ancestral war, for having exacted revenge for the Earth.
“For people like you, people like me exist.
For persons like me, people like you get put in the ground, asshole.”
Power and complicity for the arsonists in Finland and Germany, for the criminal nihilists in Italy, for the chaotic people of Argentina, for the transgressors in Brazil, and for the indiscriminate ones in Chile. Know that your acts and words animate the power of the warrior spirit.

P.S. The Indiscriminate Group Tending Toward the Wild (GITS) has a few days ago declared a new project apart from ITS - Mexico. We are happy to know that as its own group it has decided to go its separate way. We recognize and endorse their war. However, we do not agree with what they have said concerning leaving behind certain terms merely because “ the leftists use them.” Certainly it’s disturbing when radical progressives (or not) appropriate the terms that we defend. But the solution for us at least is not to cease using them merely because “other people have taken them up as their own.” On the contrary, we choose to make these terms so menacing that only their mention fills the hyper-civilized with terror. So much so that the leftists think twice about appropriating these terms for themselves.
Otherwise, let each take up what they find most accommodating to them, and let everyone draw their own conclusions.
