The Redfern Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Sydney is facing eviction on Monday 23rd February. The Embassy are calling for people to come down and help them resist eviction.
The embassy plans to apply for an injunction Monday against the eviction order, which was issued by the Aboriginal Housing Corporation (AHC) on Friday afternoon. The order demands the total dismantling of Redfern Aboriginal Tent Embassy, which has been a 24 hour protest camp since May 2014. In an area known as the ‘Block’, it sits wedged between Redfern Station and Eveleigh Street. It’s a sparse green oval resting on a grey concrete slope. On first glance it’s as unassuming and ordinary as its namesake would suggest. But the tents have only catalysed the political discontent and community activism that has boiled below the suburb’s surface for years.
The site has grown over the months to include vegetable patches and a seed bank, a sacred fire pit, kitchen and a collection of tents. The embassy was established to protest a controversial redevelopment plan for the Block – a chunk of Sydney’s Redfern suburb where Indigenous Australians have been promised affordable housing since the 1970s. When the AHC first began to be handed parts of what would later become the Block in the 1970s, it was widely viewed as a major victory in the battle for Indigenous land rights. The entire area was earmarked for affordable housing for Indigenous Australians. (more…)

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!!
Earth Liberation Front take responsibility for an attack on the National Parks and Wildlife Service (Australia)
Sunday, September 28th, 2014
We claim responsibility for the attack on the National Parks and Wildlife Service on the morning of Thursday 18th September.
NPWS were targeted for their part in the war on wildlife, with an extended history, and a continuing habit of dumping 1080 poison (sodium fluoroacetate) into wild places, all under the public guise of ‘conservation’. Killing and destroying indiscriminately, how many more lives and lands must be destroyed by this groups insane, ecocidal visions and experiments?
To express our outrage, under the cover of night, we entered their depot on Darug/Gundungurra Country (Blackheath, NSW). During our short visit, two vehicles were set upon leaving tyres slashed, windscreens smashed and a little additive into the fuel, just to sweeten the deal.
If you choose to continue to use this land as your dumping ground, you will encounter us again. Our rage will only burn bigger and stronger.
In defense of predators. In defense of wildness.

In the early hours of Sunday, May 18 we went for a walk through the streets of the predominantly rich Sydney neighborhood of Woolahra looking for suitable targets for us to express our rage upon.
It didn’t take long for us to find what we were looking for!
We set fire to 3 luxury cars – a BMW and a Nissan X-Trail on Queen St and a Lexus on Moncur St.
We left the scene quickly as the flames of rebellion lit up the early morning sky.
We dedicate this action to our comrades from the Fire Wolves Cell & also the
Felicity Ann Ryder Cell in Melbourne, to all FAI / IRF fighters everywhere & to all imprisoned anarchist & insurrectionist fighters fighting for dignity behind the walls of injustice everywhere!
For The Total Destruction Of All Existence!

This is to claim responsibility for the complete destruction by fire of three colonial structures at the so-called Royal Botanical Gardens in South Yarra, Melbourne in the small hours of May 16.
We put these filthy monuments of colonial oppression to the torch in the name of indigenous & anti-colonial resistance both here in Australia & in all other parts of the world & to spit in the faces of all those who seek to tame what is wild into sterile botanical prisons.
We also send greetings of fire & smoke to imprisoned resistance fighters everywhere!

*Note : this is an edited version of a post that appeared on an Australian underground electronic music blog, we thought it was of interest to the wider anarchist-insurrectionist community worldwide.
Things are heating up in this country with one of the most unpopular governments in Australian history now in charge – although they came to power with a landslide victory so go figure! ‘Austerity’ is the name of the game for Australia’s current batch of ultra-conservative crypto-corporate overlords which means increases in the cost of living & cuts to every social service you can think of along with the customary scapegoating of immigrants, the indigenous & other vulnerable members of society – unless you are rich and connected then you and your hard earned finances are in the firing line, and let’s not forget the absolute rape of Australia’s resources & natural environment that has gone into overdrive since these bastards took power and the arse-kissing of corporate & foreign powers as they continue to loot the continent.

On the 26th of January in Brisbane, a few members of a fascist sect called the ‘Australia First Party’ attempted to disrupt the annual invasion day march held by the local indigenous community. On the same day in Canberra the fuehrer of the party, Jim Saleam (former leader of ‘National Action’ and ’Australian Nazi Party’) gave a podium speech at a protest against the new Bikie laws in Queensland. Back in December the party held a small rally outside the Greek consulate in Sydney in support of the ultra-nationalist Golden Dawn party. (more…)

Darwin: Rowdy anti-election action as anarchists burn campaign posters and also activists banner (Australia)
Monday, September 23rd, 2013
On Friday the 6th of September as the farce of Australia’s federal election came to a close we decided to breathe some more fire into the mix.
50 + political posters with the names, faces and political parties who claim to want to “represent” us were collected throughout the night and as we descended on a footbridge across Trower Rd we noticed some do-gooder activists had already visited. (more…)

‘Anarchists claim responsibility for fire at luxury West Melbourne car dealership, but police have doubts’ the headline of the Herald-Sun screams the day after our little visit to Gran Turismo Autos.
Apparently ‘investigators’ do not believe that a ‘mysterious anarchist group’ were responsible for the fire & the Herald-Scum, which is the de-facto mouthpiece of the Victorian Police force in Melbourne, chose not to name the website where we initially posted our claim of responsibility – they also chose to only include a partial sentence from our communique.
Well we have some doubts of our own.
We doubt very much that the cops & the Herald-Scum are being truthful, and we think that even the casual reader of Tuesday’s article would be doubting the truthfulness of the cops and their pet media outlet too. (more…)

Last night (Sept 2nd 2013) for the first time in living memory but definitely not the last, the flames of anarchist insurrection roared high above the toxic skies of Melbourne putting a swift end to years of local ‘activist’ and ‘social anarchist’ inactivity in this city.
At approximately 7:30PM we gained entrance to Gran Turismo Autos, a luxury car dealership on Spencer St in inner-city West Melbourne via a poorly secured rear window and placed an improvised incendiary device with timer already set under a desk in an office area adjacent to the showroom then promptly fled the building via the same window through which we gained entry.

On the 6th of February we are asking for all anarchists, freethinkers & trouble makers to gather outside the building housing the Egyptian Consulate on 50 Market St, Melbourne CBD at 3:30PM in a show of solidarity for our Egyptian anarchist brothers and sisters who are currently facing serious repression from the religious fascist Morsi and his brutal Muslim Brotherhood backed regime.
The regime’s ‘justice’ apparatus have declared the Black Bloc and anarchists who first made their presence known at protests commemorating the 2nd anniversary of the Egyptian revolution as a ‘terrorist group’ and have ordered that all suspected members be arrested and detained. There have also been calls from religious extremist elements within Egypt for Black Bloc members to be beaten and executed. (more…)

On Sunday the 31st of September under the cover of darkness we set off with hatred in our hearts & cans of spray-paint in our back-packs.
Once again we found ourselves in the outer northern suburbs of Melbourne – in particular the predominantly low-income neighborhood of Glenroy.
And once more we decided to direct our anger at the church; there always seem to be plenty of churches in the poorer suburbs & Glenroy is no exception.
Our first stop was the Corpus Christi Catholic Church where we sprayed ‘FUCK RELIGION’ and an anarchy symbol on a side of the church facing a main road, we then made our way to the front door of the church and sprayed ‘JESUS RAPES’ and another anarchy symbol.
We then walked across the road to St Matthews Anglican Church where we sprayed several anarchy symbols and the words ‘RELIGION BREEDS ENSLAVEMENT’. In the car park we were lucky enough to find two church vehicles. Unfortunately we were not in the position to be able to torch the vehicles so we did the next best thing – redecorated them with some anarchy symbols and some random scribble which will no doubt be very costly for them to remove.
We continued onwards into the night, stopping several times to paint slogans on some very public walls. The slogans were : ‘FUCK AUTHORITY!’, ‘FUCK THE POLICE!’, ‘COPS MURDER’, ‘SOCIAL WAR’. ‘CLASS WAR’ and of course plenty of circle a’s to compliment them.
We then made our way to the Glenroy Uniting Church and sprayed the slogans ‘PEDO CHRIST’ & ‘GOD IS DEAD’ on the front of the church, and of course we sprayed some anarchy symbols as well just in case they were wondering just who these angry vandals were.
Running low on paint & high on adrenalin we decided to call it a night, happy that we had ventured much further than last time & already thinking of future actions!
Next time we will definitely have to bring some fire making utensils as it is high time that the night time landscape of Melbourne’s outer suburban wastelands were lit up with the flames of nihilistic social warfare!
We would like to dedicate this night’s actions to our chaotic church hating comrades in Bristol UK, the Free Thought Association / Fraction of Gender Renegades. We also send greetings to all FAI insurgents currently active on planet Earth, to all the comrades in cyberspace still operating under the AntiSec banner & of course to all the imprisoned anarchist fighters struggling for dignity in the prisons around the world!

On the night of Friday August 25 the following actions were carried out in the Northern suburbs of the city:
1. Baptist church & child brainwashing centre sprayed with the slogan ‘PEDO CHRIST’
2. Railway station underpass sprayed with the slogan ‘FUCK METRO’ and anarchy symbol. (Metro is the private company responsible for running Melbourne’s so-called ‘public’ transport system.)
3. 2nd railway underpass sprayed with slogans ‘DONT WORK : RIOT!’, ‘MASS MEDIA LIES!’ & ‘FUCK THE POLICE STATE!’
4. Evangelical church sprayed with the slogans ‘JESUS RAPES’ & ‘FUCK RELIGION’
5. Shell Service Station wall sprayed with the slogans : ‘DONT WORK : RIOT!’, ‘VIVA FAI / IRF!’, ‘FAI / IRF’ & ‘FUCK THE POLICE!’
These small acts were carried out as a belated contribution to the international call-out from Contra-Info for anti-repression propaganda actions & also out of general anger & frustration at the lack of any meaningful actions in this city in a long time & also at the fact that there seems to be a church on nearly every fucking block these days! Unfortunately it was not practical to take photos and in any case the slogans on the churches were quickly removed the next day, no doubt by horrified church employees! Hopefully the other slogans will stay up much longer.
LONE WOLF / ANONYMOUS ANARCHISTS

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
