325: You can’t jail wolves. You only can jail the body, but you cannot jail the spirit of liberation and the will to keep carrying on attacks against all the enemies. You can shutdown one fighter but the spirit will still live and reach the other corner and spot where you feel safe. You have an eternal enemy who will never step back even though we lost comrades. We, the nihilist anarchists will never stop hitting you until you are ashes. We are the pole out of your poor understanding regarding what is anarchy and chaos for us. And yes we are terrorists, the one who fought for freedom from hundreds years ago with fists, rocks, molotovs, incendiaries and of course, bombs.
And we used it against you. Against one of your most favourite instruments: Banks. We blew up one of your money machine with our small explosive creation. We made the bomb with our limited knowledge about it from many different sources. We want you and your abiding citizens know if we will never let our limitations bound our desire to continually address our anger to all of you. We made the bomb consisted of small amount of black powder and mixed it with some pieces of irons from nails to strengthen the power. And it successfully blew and paralysed one of your supporting instruments. Continue reading “Indonesia: Malang, East Java – ATM Bank bombed”
