Attack on the passport office of the police in Malmö (Sweden)

Sunday, November 19th, 2017

On the 17th of November, the leaders of the nations of the European Union gathered in Gothenburg for the EU summit. The EU maintains its external borders vigilantly, leading to countless deaths of people trying to enter Europe. Internally, the border controls returned during the latest “refugee-crisis”, and at the Swedish border they are still in place. Borders and deportations protect the rich and powerful of the European societies, at the price of murder and incarceration, and they manifest themselves clearly in passports and police.

The police willingly do the insidious work of controlling the borders and carrying out deportations. At the same time, the EU gives the police forces of the member states extended possibilities for repressive cooperation, enabling them to exchange information and issue arrest warrants for sought-after people across the EU.

The police mobilized massively to protect the EU summit in Gothenburg, so we decided to strike somewhere else, away from their attention.

For these reasons, and many more, we attacked the passport office of the police in Malmö with rocks on the night of the EU summit.

We send warm rebellious greetings to those who fight against borders and nationstates and to those who fought the police on the 30th of September when Nazis were marching in Gothenburg, especially to those who are now jailed or going to trial for the events on that day.

UPDATE: The trial has been postponed until early 2011

Statement of the London Thessaloniki Solidarity Group – September 19th, 2010 version

The solidarity group was formed in 2003 soon after the arrests at the EU summit demonstrations in Thessaloniki.

The entire basis of the arrests in 2003, was and still remains, an arbitrary attack upon the demonstrations, where culpability was placed upon those that the Greek authorities sought to make examples of. From the beginning of the process of detention it was clear that evidence of guilt would not even be based upon recognition of legal facts or evidence but by association. (more…)
