Compartimos este llamado a la abstención activa, ante el circo eufórico de los procesos electorales (en España) que ya están aquí de nuevo. Con esto no sólo incitamos a la abstención, sino al ataque directo contra cualquier máquina, institución, Estado o colaborador de éstos.
Es un Cartel para colgar en la calle, y una Octavilla para buzonear.
El Catel es Din A3.
La Octavilla se imprime en Din A4 por las dos caras, y se recorta en 3, y se dobla el papel por donde está la imagen del gato, y se deja en el buzón dejando que sobresalga del buzón sólo la parte del gato y el “no votes nunca” para llamar la atención del vecino de turno.
No es un llamado “ciudadanista”, es un llamado a deslegitimar y atacar todas las estructuras de dominación que se ciernen sobre nosotros a diario. (more…)
Domokos: Text by Nikos Maziotis about the elections on January 25th and the coalition of SYRIZA and ANEL (Greece)

Translated by Act for freedom now!
The January 25 elections was one more “triumph” of civil democracy. It was further proof of the discrediting of a rotten political system, where more than 1/3 of the electoral body turned its back on the “fiesta” of democracy and did not go to vote. Out of the approximately 9.800.000 voters registered in the electoral records participation was at 63,5%, meaning that the valid votes were about 6.180.000, while the other 3.620.000, which accounts for 36,5%, did not go to vote. Out of those who voted, SYRIZA got 36%, i.e. around 2.200.000 voters, meaning that out of all the registered voters, SYRIZA’s government was based on less than 1/4 of the electoral body.
A triumph therefore of “popular dominance” and democratic centralization! In the end it’s not the majority through representatives that “governs” as is supposed, but the minority. It has been proved yet again that the political system of civil parliamentarianism is disparaged by millions of citizens. It was proved that precisely because of this disparaging of the political system as a result of the economic crisis, all the governments of recent years are minority governments and that self-reliance is now impossible. In reality, one could say that the main power are those abstaining from electoral illusions and staged circuses of professional liars and fraudsters, right or left. (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…)

Read #1 here.
As the campaign period for the May 13 polls heated up on its last day on Saturday, cab driver told that, “I am not excited to vote. Every three years, I keep hearing the same promises from the same people, who keep breaking their promises every two years. Old and new politicians are alike. They want to remain in power forever. They don’t serve the people.” (more…)
