Greece: Shooting of a comrade in Exarchia on December 4, 2013 (Athens)

Saturday, December 7th, 2013

via Contra Info

Before I start describing the incident, I would like to mention the reasons why I haven’t initiated any formal complaint or lawsuit. First off, I declare myself an anarchist-antiauthoritarian. Therefore, my conscience cannot be misled by legal proceedings. Freedom combatants should draw the battle lines against the system and its “privileges” offered to us. In the following account of the incident (which occurred two days before the anniversary of the murder of comrade Alexis Grigoropoulos, in 2008), I want to make it clear that I do not consider myself a victim of the described attack, because the battle lines are drawn, and we stand against the enemy, as I already mentioned.

Montreal: Cop car burned (Canada)

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

In the spirit of March 15′s past, a cop car was set on fire on the evening of March 15th, at the Poste 33 police station in Parc-Ex, Montreal. This action was taken to complement the 17th annual demonstration against police (and their brutality) that took place earlier that day.

We also send a message of support to Marco Camenisch in his struggles from inside prison in Switzerland.

Note: Police units attacked the annual anti-police demo in Montreal this year and arrested over 200 people in a preemptive assault. The target of the demo was the downtown policestation.

International Day of Action Against Police Brutality, Corruption & Murder

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

This is a demo call out from a social activist group in Birmingham, UK.


Friday, 15 March 2013, 13:00. Wear Black
Police Headquarters Lloyd House.

March 15 has been a day of international action against police brutality around the globe since 1997. The specific date is significant because in Switzerland, on March 15, two children, ages 11 and 12, were beaten by police. M15 originated from the Black Flag group in Switzerland and from the Collective Opposed to Police Brutality in Montreal. People in countries across the world come out to the streets in March to express their rage against the police. In Montreal specifically, there has been fierce annual riots erupting from the depths of the dispossessed. This March 15, We encourage everyone to join the rest of the world in the streets the timing couldn’t be more appropriate. On this date 2 years ago the Police killed a British Reggae Icon David Emanuel aka Smiley Culture proved in court to be an innocent man and weeks later Birmingham man Kingsley Burrell dialled 999 for help and ended up dead 30th March 2011. Not forgetting unarmed man 36, Anthony Grainger shot and killed in a pre planned operation in Manchester on 3rd March 2012. (more…)

International Association of Chiefs of Police Hacked During 2011 Conference on October 22nd – International Day of Action Against Police Brutality (Global)

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011

Incoming : Hackers who are fighting online in the frame of the international resistance have attacked the International Association of Chiefs of Police and released their data online to mark the International Day of Action Against Police Brutality. Communique follows…

22 October 2011

The IACP thought they could hold their 2011 annual conference in Chicago unfettered by the clutches of insurrection. They must not have known their conference starts on the Day of Action Against Police Brutality. They must not have known that all over the world people are in the streets demonstrating discontent with capitalism and the state. They also had no idea that for the past few months black hat hackers have been owning their websites and databases. They should have expected us.

In solidarity with the Occupation Movement and the International Day of Action Against Police Brutality, allied #anonymous and #antisec vessels took aim at the corrupt bootboys of the 1%: the police. We hacked, defaced, and destroyed several law enforcement targets, leaking over 600MB of private information including internal documents, membership rosters, addresses, passwords, social security numbers, and other confidential data. According to the IACP’s development documents, their systems cost several hundred thousand dollars. We are pleased to destroy it all for free, leaking their private info and defacing their websites in one swift blow.

We attacked MatrixGroup.net, a multi-million dollar Washington DC based web development firm, which serves over a hundred government, corporate and association websites. Many lulz have been had as we owned their white hat “professional” intranet, clients and employee wiki portals– accessing records and passwords, internal communications, company schedules, and development notes for over a hundred clients. We intentionally excluded the unions and other unrelated sites on their servers because, unlike the police and those who support them, we will never betray our working class comrades. We realize our role in the social struggle against capital and against the state, deciding instead to set our sights on the police, military and other government websites hosted by Matrix.

Our lulzboats also took aim at Boston Police in retaliation for the unprovoked mass arrests and brutality experienced by those at Occupy Boston. We hacked the Boston Police Patrolmens’ Association (www.bppa.org), releasing full names and the cleartext, user-supplied passwords for a thousand members. Many lulz have been had while perusing their emails and facebook accounts, and we are now sharing their passwords for others so they can join in on the mayhem as well. Let this be a warning to BPD and police everywhere: future acts of aggression against our movements will be met with a vengeance so epic and relentless that your children’s children will puke at the sight of swine.

After exhausting both sides of Milli Vanillis’ “Girl You Know It’s True” tape, we also decided to attack Alabama law enforcement systems, releasing the names, addresses, and social security numbers for 1000 Birmingham / Jefferson County police officers as well as defacing and destroying the website SherrifOfBaldwin.com. We are attacking Birmingham specifically because of their notorious racial discriminatory practices including the savage beatings and mass arrests endured by civil rights protesters during the 60s. Although we had records of inmates, active warrant names, addresses, charges and social security numbers the thought of releasing them never crossed our mind because we would never betray our brothers and sisters shackled and chained behind prison walls– our targets are the ones who beat and murder with immunity, the cowardly carcases and lifeless hosts of power who hide behind a badge.

We are also acting in solidarity with the dozens of alleged “Anonymous” members around the world facing charges for “hacking,” including the Paypal LOIC defendants in San Jose, Commander X, Recursion, Topiary, Stephen Watt, and more. We are acting in solidarity with the thousands of prisoners in California on Hunger Strike fighting for better living conditions and an end to prolonged solitary confinement. We also call for the IMMEDIATE RELEASE of not only political prisoners(Leonard Peltier, Mumia Abu Jamal, the MOVE 9, the Angola 3, and more) but all prisoners everywhere including all Jon Burge torture survivors still behind bars.

We are attacking the police because they are the vicious boot boys of the 1% whose role in society is to protect the interests and assets of the rich ruling class. They are not part of the 99%– they are working class traitors who are paid to intimidate, harass, and repress political movements that would possibly stand a threat to the power structure of the 1%. We have no problem targeting police and releasing their information even if it puts them at risk because we want them to experience just a taste of the brutality and misery they serve us on an everyday basis. We hope those working for the police who have any humanity left refuse their orders and leak the police and their commanding officer’s vital secrets and dirt. We must realize that police are no allies of ours and have violently attacked our movements all across the world throughout history.

In Chicago, where the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference is taking place, the CPD has a particularly bloody and ruthless history of brutality and repression of political movements. Throughout the 70s and 80s under Jon Burge (chief detective) and former Mayor Richard M. Daley (prosecuter at the time), dozens of CPD detectives many whom are still on the force tortured hundreds of innocent black men, forcing confessions and giving out decades-long prison sentences for crimes never committed. The CPD also operates notorious “red squad” COINTELPRO operations that attempts to discredit and disrupt revolutionary groups– including the assassination of Black Panther Party leaders Fred Hampton and Mark Clark. This repression continues today as they beat and arrested over 900 protesters when the second War in Iraq broke out, and just over a year ago dozens of protest organizers were raided by the FBI for alleged affiliation with resistance movements. The CPD just announced a new ‘counter-terrorism’ operation (taking tips from the NYPD playbook) likely to target protest organizers for the upcoming G8 and NATO conferences in May. Although they try to intimidate us by training over 13,000 riot police for these protests, we believe that they are the truly the frightened ones, and perhaps for good reason: the high profile hacks will continue, and the protests against the 1% are growing every day.

We are 99%. We are the working class that makes society function. We are not intimidated by the States attempts to disrupt our resistance through unprovoked arrests and harassments. As the violence of the cops, the courts, the FBI, La Migra, and Homeland Security intensifies, so must our resistance: we will continue to bring the ruckus on the streets and on the internet. We are believers and practitioners of direct action against all governments, militaries, banks, corporations, and police working towards our revolutionary goal: the immediate dissolution of capitalism and the state.

Hackers, join us to make 2011 the year of leaks and revolutions!

“We will destroy laughing, we will set fires laughing, we will kill laughing… and society will fall!!”Renzo Novatore

Prison poem scratched in polystyrene cup (UK)

Saturday, February 26th, 2011

Here is a prison poem that was written by Stan Skank after he got arrested for some bullshit in London on one of the recent demos. Stan scratched this into a polystyrene cup (UK detention is pretty sparse), but how he managed to write all this on one is beyond us. Anyway, Stan bothered to send it to us, so here it is for you lot:

Here I sit in another nick, for another crime I did not commit,
Another profile, another trial
They don’t give an inch but always leap a mile,
All this attention when I don’t wanna be admired,
I’m gettin’ sick and tired of being sick an tired

I just wanna be left alone, For a quiet life and to build a home,
But the government always wanna check up on me,
There’s no freedom without anarchy,
Capitalism is a public hell,
And if you try to make a change pigs stick you in a cell.

My caged mind wanders,
Wonder how long they’ll hold us,
But like a blizzard in a snow globe our prisons can’t contain us
Each unique but unified flake
Ready for an outbreak, with the power of an earth quake,
We won’t wipe but crack the slate,
Innumerable droplets from a tsunami
An uncontrollable tide to wash away the tyranny.

They’ll call it a disaster but I say it’s natural,
What you call a riot to me looks like a battle.

Forces meet and sabres rattle,
Flank us in a pincer then stick on the kettle,
If you increase the pressure we’ll boil over you just watch us,
We’ll scald the hand that feeds and the other which oppresses.

We’re the freedom fighters, we’re urban guerrillas,
You may strike us down, but you’ll never fucking kill us.
