Review: More discussion on Leftist projects ‘Libcom’ & ‘Aufheben' – about their collaboration with police consultants (UK)

Early this year the British anti-insurrectionalist ‘civil anarchist’ group ‘Libcom’ and bourgeois communists ‘Aufheben’, were confirmed to fraternise/defend/collaborate with police consultants John Drury and Clifford Stott, academic parasites who work on improving police techniques and social control.

The decent anarchist comrades in America who produce the publication The Anvil recently published “On Why Dr John Drury Is A Collaborationist Asshole: A Review of Cop-Out: The Significance of Aufhebengate”, which is a review of a little book published by Little Black Cart about the slimy behaviour of these cowardly political cultists and their contribution to the development of British policing methods (with background on the topic). The book is written by a member of the left-communist group TPTG, which is based in Greece. Whilst we have our clear political disagreements with TPTG, we respect the work that one of their members has done to expose this collaboration and its cover-up [correction: the author is not a member of TPTG but is close to the group]. The dismal ‘social movement’ in the UK has largely ignored the running treachery of these individuals/groups for some time, mostly from fragmentation and the lack of taking these individuals/groups seriously, which is why we see it as important that this book and the discussion around it is widened internationally to isolate these collaborators and their associates. British policing methods are often exported to other countries and British police frequently advise their foreign counterparts, to suppress and co-opt demonstrations, dismantle social movements and break-up underground resistance groups. Those who advise the police in such a role (and those who defend them) will always remain our avowed enemies.

Libcom is well-known in the UK as the primary nest of the civil anarchists. They have made many online efforts to publicly denigrate the anarchist-insurrectionalists and the animal/eco liberation movement with their website. It’s also well known that they tried to undermine the Anarchist Black Cross prisoner solidarity campaign for the release of John Bowden, a long-term prisoner turned activist inside the walls.
