Melbourne, Australia: Action Against Turkish Military Supplier Trakka Corp in Solidarity with Rojava
Sunday, December 15th, 2019
From Anarchists Worldwide:
In the early morning hours of December 14th, 2019, the International Day of Action for Rojava, we paid a visit to the offices of local war profiteers, Trakka Corp/Trakka Systems, in Moorabin, south-east Melbourne, to let them know that their greed-driven collaboration with the fascist Turkish State’s war machine has not gone unnoticed.
In August 2019, Trakka Systems were contracted by Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company, to supply “cutting edge, high intensity, multi-mission Trakka Beam A800 searchlights” for their Black Hawk helicopters, including the Sikorsky TAI (Turkish Aerospace Industries) variant destined for use by the fascist Turkish Armed Forces in their ongoing invasion and occupation of the Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria (Rojava).
As a small contribution to the International Day of Action for Rojava we decided to take direct action against Trakka Systems to express our solidarity with the people of Rojava and their internationalist comrades who, since October 9th, 2019, have courageously resisted the genocidal occupation plans of Erdoğan’s fascist forces. We also carried out this action to highlight the shameless activities of capitalist vultures like Trakka Corp / Trakka Systems, one of many companies operating within so-called Australia who willingly collaborate with war-mongering authoritarian regimes for profit. Not only do Trakka Systems do business with the Turkish Armed Forces, they are also in bed with other international military and police forces such as those of Israel, Indonesia and the US, who they supply with the latest in ‘Critical Vision Technology’.
Finally, we hope that our small action contributes in some way towards a revival of militant, targeted direct action and sabotage in so-called Australia.
Death to Turkish State Fascism!
Death to War Profiteers!
Long Live International Solidarity!

Naarm / Melbourne, so-called Australia: Serco Compound Attacked in Solidarity with Refugees in Detention
Sunday, November 26th, 2017
19.11.17: Tonight, a group of people in Naarm / Melbourne, responding to the call out for 8 Days of Solidarity for Refugees, undertook an action targeting Serco. Serco is a multinational corporation which is directly responsible for the inhumane incarceration conditions faced by refugees, asylum seekers, and detainees, in so-called Australia. Serco is also a major player in the international privatised prison complex.
The group gained access to a central Naarm / Melbourne, Serco compound and immobilised 7 vehicles. The group also left spray-painted messages on Serco compound property, including vehicles, reading “Serco Psycho Scum”, “Serco, profiting from refugee detention- this is war”, and “Serco profits from misery, we hold YOU responsible”.

Wilson Storage and Wilson Parking benefit from the suffering caused by Wilson Security on Manus, Nauru and elsewhere. In the past week we attacked both subsidiaries with glue, concrete, paint and hammers. We will continue to attack Wilson Group until they pull out of detention wholly and permanently. Any company associated with the border industrial complex is a target. We urge our comrades to join us in solidarity with protesters on Nauru and all others incarcerated.

On the night of Sunday 26th June we glued the locks and spray painted the entrance to Wilson Security on Sydney Road, Coburg in Melbourne.
Wilson provides security at Nauru and Manus Island detention centres and are responsible for numerous, well documented abuses of detainees.
Solidarity with the protestors at Nauru detention centre!
Close the camps!

Disruption of VINCI and French Consulate
To the defenders of the ZAD,
Solidarity from anarchists in so-called ‘Melbourne, Australia’- the never-ceded indigenous land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, stolen and occupied by the genocidal settler-colonial state.
In response to recent threats of violent eviction by the French State, actions were taken at several locations in Melbourne, the city built on the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, in colonised Australia. The actions targetted the French consulate and offices of companies of the VINCI corporate-family linked to the proposed destruction of land at the Zone-A-Defendre.
The French consulate was attacked with paint and its locks were stuffed and glued.
The Offices of Menard-Bachy and Fressynet (both companies owned by VINCI), had their windows broken and slogans in support of the ZAD painted on the facade.
The Melbourne office of Electrix (a company owned by VINCI) was redecorated with a number of slogans celebrating resistance to VINCI’s plans.

In the final hours of December 2015 we attacked the offices of the
defense contractor BAE Systems on River Boulevard in Richmond with paint
and sledge hammers.
BAE Systems make billions from war and their technology is responsible
for countless civilian deaths worldwide.
This action was carried out as part of Black December, a month of
anarchist direct action that was initiated by the anarchist prisoners
Nikos Romanos and Panagiotis Argirou in Greece.
We also carried out this action in solidarity with anarchist prisoners
held hostage by states worldwide and in solidarity with Indigenous
prisoners held hostage by the colonist ‘authorities’ here in so-called
‘Australia’ – all of whom are political prisoners.
Black December is everywhere!

For the Media and Public Opinion
JAZIRA, Rojava (July 1, 2015) – Through history, with any identity that it might be, humanity has assembled around definitions such as freedom, equality and peace – and it always has risen in defiance of tyranny, oppression and cruelty. Freedom-lovers throughout the entire world have continuously been involved in a struggle to leave a free and peaceful future for their children.
The Kurdish people has played a big role in this revered struggle of peoples, as they continue to conduct their significant part. For thousands of years the pressure and war of deadly powers has not been reduced, yet our relentless people have always stood strong in face of those dark forces and have held high the flag of struggle. In order to grant freedom and democracy, whatever price it has been required, these people have paid confidently. This struggle of Kurdish people can be taken into account as the hardest and longest struggle of human history. Today, a streamer of this respected battle is waved by proud combatants of the People’s Defense Units and the Women’s Defense Units in Rojava Kurdistan, Syria.
This valued fight of our forces today has echoed widely throughout the entire world, and has been of abundant hope and belief for freedom-loving young men and women. For that, willing individuals from all around the world step forward to come to Rojava and be a part of this shared struggle of peoples. This assembly and reaching each other, defines well that humanity still lives with the same principles and purity. How hard determined unrighteous ones try, warriors who march taking those principles as value, are more resolute to let not the enemy forces a single opportunity. (more…)
