Attack against the ‘Messe Hamburg’, venue for the OSCE and G20 summits (Germany)

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

Also see: Excavator burns in Berlin – against G20-Summit.

Today at 23:00 we placed burning tires at the south entrance of the venue for the OSCE and G20 summits, the ‘Messe Hamburg’. The glass facade on Karolinenstraße was subject to intensive attack with hammers, paint and stones. We decided on this demolition initiative since we reject the summits which are summits for a world that we reject just as much as the planned meetings.

The summits are a symbol of the never-ending cycle of production and consumption for this commodity society which excludes people from social life and includes others. We want to destroy this cycle as well as the summits.

The exhibition halls are practically in the living room of the Schanzen and Karolinen district as the state chairperson of the Greens, Gallina stated and for a long time have been a wrecking ball over the heads of the residents. In the 1950s and 60s the city of Hamburg bought up large areas and many buildings in the Karolinen district and issued a competition which was a premise for the total destruction of the Karos for an expansion of the venue for the ‘Justice Forum’. Along the Feldstraße the construction of a gigantic sports and multi-purpose hall was planned for a long time. When the Hamburg senate gradually moved away from demolition plans in the 1970s, Messe AG tried to continue the demolition and finally the ‘Messe Hamburg’ got new spaces and halls on the edge of the Karolinen district. The new building was flanked by hotel buildings in the Schanzen Park, Schröderstiftstraße and Feldstraße. (more…)

Berlin: Attack against arms company Thales (Germany)

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

It is getting warmer, concerning the preparations for a hot July against the G20-Summit. In the night from 11th to 12th November property of the Thales Company was destroyed.

Thales is one of the eleven biggest armaments companies with an annual sales of 14 billion Euros and above this part of some technology programs, like the satellite range Galileo.

Initially conceived only for civil use, like smartphones, navigation systems, etc. decided the European Parliament in July 2008, that this technic should be available to the European Security- and Defense Politics (ESVP). Thales developed the project „Watchkeeper“, too. On commission for the British Forces an unmanned drone (Thales Watchkeeper WK450) was produced. They got ready in 2012 and flew until 2014 some 140 times over Afghanistan and were consistently upgraded in 2016. Since this year it is possible to load the drone with a 2-kg-warhead and laser- and GPS-control. At last the technology from Thales can kill directly. (more…)

Attack against Deutsche Telekom in Berlin (Germany)

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2016

Eight month before the G20 – Summit in Hamburg, clandestine connections carry out their attacks against the current order in whole Europe every night. Mostly without knowing each other, our fires find similar targets in the hotspots of anarchist subversion, which are placed over the state-owned construct of the European Fortress. Often in a local frame of reference and too rare with the perspective of an international sabotage against the instruments of dominion.

So is the net of people, aggressive and poised to attack, always on the search for opportunities to direct the attacks to a common focus. We should have more courage to arrange to meet us, to travel in order to find places were we get in exchange of ideas and multiply our related experiences. But we want to conduct actions as well in the places where we live, which build relations above the local and specific context, which ignore temporary borders and get incalculable with it. (more…)

Call For Decentralized Resistance To The G20 Summit In November (Australia)

Sunday, October 5th, 2014

Anarchists in Australia issue a call out for decentralised attacks, disorder, riots and sabotage around the topic of the G20.

The G20 is meeting in Brisbane in November. This elite decision making body epitomises the undemocratic nature of state-sponsored global capitalism; delegates from the 20 wealthiest economic zones make self-serving proclamations which affect everyone, without open discussion or oversight. …

We are calling for people to form affinity groups in their home towns and
autonomously organise decentralised direct action against the G20 and the capitalist occupation of our lives.

See you on the streets!!

Inflammable #2, Montreal based anarchist/anti-capitalist zine (Canada)

Sunday, December 2nd, 2012

From sabotagemedia:

light it up!
Texts, communiqués, and reportbacks primarily from Montreal…
moments of revolt that warm the heart…

“The moment where we take back our lives, where we free ourselves from morality, fear, and the identities imposed on us. It cannot be stopped by a negotiation table, nor a ballot box. It isn’t the beginning of a movement nor will it die with a movement: It is to be alive, free, and wild!” (more…)

Sydney: Banners dropped in solidarity with Toronto G20 Prisoners (Australia, Canada)

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

On August 5 some anarchists dropped two banners from the Carhill expressway bridge outside the Canadian consulate. The action was in response to a call out for August 5 to be a day of solidarity actions for Kelly Rose Pflug-Back, an anarchist hostage of the Canadian state, recently sentenced to 15 months in prison for her resistance to the Toronto G20 in 2010.

The banners read:

‘EVERY PRISONER IS A POLITICAL PRISONER’ &
‘FREE KELLY ROSE PFLUG-BACK’

A couple hundred leaflets condemning the repression and celebrating the resistance in the occupied territory of Canada were also thrown from the bridge. Our small act was an expression of our solidarity with Kelly and all the rebels who rejected the passive logic of legal protest and made a concrete stand against the annual meeting of the managers of global capital.

Prisoners to the streets!
No G20 No State

Call Out for day of action to support Kelly Pflug-Back, G20 political prisoner (Canada)

Saturday, August 4th, 2012

On July 19 our friend Kelly Rose Pflug-Back was sentenced to 15months in jail followed by 3 years of probation for her involvement in the Black Bloc at the Toronto G20. The crown stated that this sentencing was meant to send a clear message that the actions of the Black Bloc would not be tolerated. Kelly spent much of the preceding year under house arrest and strict conditions, designed to isolate her from the movement and disable her from doing the work she believes in. Yet through it all Kelly has remained active, strong, and defiant! (more…)

The month of June, 2012 marks two years since the G20 summit in Toronto and the courageous resistance shown to it. It also marks the sentencing of our comrade Charles Bicari to seven months behind bars for smashing the windows of two police cars, two stores and an ATM with a hammer. To mark the occasion, we spent a few evenings spreading anti-system and solidarity slogans with the G20 prisoners in the streets of Montreal.

Continued solidarity with the G20 prisoners!

RBS attacked with rocks & fire over Tar Sands project (UK)

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

Received via contact form.

23 February 2009

In the early hours of Tuesday 23rd February 2010, anarchists attacked the Royal Bank of Scotland HQ in the heart of developing Bristol, UK.

Despite road traffic and proximity of security, the mob succeeded in breaking windows, smashing paint-bombs against upper floors and setting fire to tyres in the middle of the road.

A litany of abuses by RBS or any other bank could continue for pages, but it is enough to state that every bank is part of the financial prison which incarcerates and impoverishes all of us.

These actions will escalate and multiply.

We dedicate this action to all indigenous fighters and their allies struggling against the Tar Sands project in Kanada which RBS is an investor in, and also all those who fight against the 2010 Winter-Olympics.

This action is also in solidarity with Alfredo M. Bonanno, Christos Stratigopoulos, Polykarpos Georgiades, Vaggelis Chrisohoides, Giannis Dimitrakis, Gabriel Pombo da Silva, the entire London G20 defendants/prisoners and all other prisoners in struggle.

For international struggle against capitalism and the state.

Solidarity with Mindaugus Lenartavicius – Smash RBS (UK)

Friday, December 4th, 2009

The facts are well known; the theatre of the London G20, the policing arena which left one man dead and scores injured was a spectacle of state/media hype and constructed ‘disorder’. Already April is remembered only for the lies of the police and the ‘kettle’ trap which they set for anyone intending to voice their discontent with an economic system which has betrayed and exploited people everywhere.
