27 02 2011 - translated from Culmine via Liberación Total - The construction of a complex of bourgeois country homes is underway in the Moscow area, in a place called Opaliha. As usual, the buildings are located in a desirable area near a forest on the shore of Lake Lesnoe (Foresty in Russian). Right now there’s a lot of logging going on in serene pine forests, and soil moisture is being compromised due to massive construction sites and excavations. The forests and lakes are thus up for sale, privatization, and finally destruction. We will not accept this!
During the night of February 19, 2011, we true daughters and sons of Nature set fire to a supply of flammable construction material being kept in one of the open sheds. This became a huge fire inside the building. We also torched the electrical transformer, causing considerable damage to these murderers of Mother Earth.
Around the world, keep fighting for Nature and Freedom!

27 02 2011 - During the early evening of February 19, 2011, under the light of a full moon, we set fire to a Caterpillar bulldozer in a clearing of the Khimki forest, just north of Moscow. Private capital and the state have merged for the purpose of constructing a highway through the forest. We are making them pay for every tree they cut down.
