M.A. Julius & Co. Bailiff Offices attacked in Nottingham (UK)

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

19 October 2010

“A violent tool of the state and capitalism, bailiffs are a tool on the poor and as such deserve to be treated with fury and contempt. And last night they were.

M.A Julius and Co. of New Basford, Nottingham were paid a visit last night. Their windows were smashed and messages were left, “Fuck the Rich”, “Leave our homes alone” and “Fuck Bailiffs” were painted on the walls of their offices.

This was in solidarity with all of those, including ourselves who have had the indignity from being evicted from homes because the system we live in rewards the selfish greed of the privileged few and punishes the excluded and marginalized. As the cuts come more and more people will struggle to cope, and more and more will be put into debt, and more and more will have their doors broken down by agents of the capitalism. This action is a sign that there will be retaliation, that the controllers of capital and their stooges will not have it all their own way.

Smash the rich and fuck capital. Hammer and Paint

Attacks against police targets in Bristol (UK)

Monday, October 11th, 2010

8 & 9 October 2010

“Anti-police actions on the nights of the 8th and 9th October.

1. Avonmouth police garage was a soft target with 30 rocks thrown over the fence at vehicles.

2. CID regional HQ, Kenneth Steele House, Feeder rd. Plainclothes vehicles, including one sports car, smashed with rocks.

3. Fishing line strung up at 9ft for the mounted police of Bower Ashton mounted police and dog section.

Pick your moment, your terrain. Ambush.

Some angry people are not content to stagnate in silence. We recognise our brains as weapons. Wouldn’t it be nice if more people broke away from the British tradition of sitting back and taking shit from cops in the U.K and actually fought back for a change?

Solidarity with all those inside and outside the prison who fight the system.

This is for all those beaten, abused and murdered by police.”

'Conditions in Youth Prisons' by John Bowden (UK)

Friday, August 6th, 2010

In this article, social prisoner John Bowden exposes the violent control methods carried against young people in UK prison. The prison guards who act out their brutal fantasies on young people are not isolated ‘bad’ individuals but part of a de-humanising authoritarian system of exploitation and power. This situation is not simply a case for the United Kingdom, young people are imprisoned in disgusting conditions everywhere, and all these prisons must be torn to the ground with the guards scattered. Fire to the Prisons.

In 2004 15 year old Gareth Myatt died whilst bring “restrained” by three members of staff at a privatized children’s prison called Rainsbrook Secure Training Centre in Warwickshire. In the same year 14 year old Adam Rickwood hanged himself in another privatized children’s jail, Hassockfield Secure Training Centre in Co. Durham. A Judge later ruled that the guards who “restrained” Adam shortly before his death had used unlawful force on him. Six years later and following a sustained campaign by parents of imprisoned children and groups like the Children’s Rights Alliance for England (CRAE) a shocking government document detailing control methods used on children, some as young as 12, in custody has been revealed under the Freedom of Information Act.

Anarchists expropriate supermarket in Saloniki (Greece)

Saturday, June 19th, 2010

14 June 2010

“On 14/06/10 we stormed into a super-market of the chain Masoutis on M.Kyriakou street, we took basic need goods (olive oil, pasta, milk etc.) and destroyed the anti-theft systems and the surveillance camera while we also smashed the cash machines and burnt all the money they had inside.

From the beginning we had decided that the goods of the appropriation would be distributed among the comrades who participated, not outside the super-market. With this choice of ours we want to make clear that this, and other practices aim not at promoting some of us as saviours of the society – rather, we want society itself to familiarise itself with such practices and to embrace them without waiting for the “revolutionary” philanthropist/ friends of the poor. Especially in a period like this one, where the rottenness of the present system is pushing it toward collapse. As for the term “Robin Hoodies” (in Greek: Super-market Robins) we believe it consists another typical attempt to twist the meaning of such actions by Mass Media, which present comrades as some sort of elite stealing for the poor. In result, the distribution of the goods is presented in a way that refers to the narcosis and the passivity reflected in the thinking “someone will think-act-take care of us”.

We do not believe in a society of “weak-minded” people who must necessarily be ruled, as is wished by the ruling propaganda. We are happy when people walk on with the belief that their life belongs to them, away from mediators and needless gabble, when they organise under the premise of solidarity, anti-authoritarianism and self-organisation; under the guidance of active negation and attack. When they do not fall for the fallacy of the regime that “by helping each other we will scrape through the crisis”. It is important, finally that when distributing goods you have no way of telling if the recipients are indeed in solidarity, even if that is not active, or if they are just hypocrites taking care of themselves only – and perhaps even, in another case, they would be the first to inform to the police. Of course we applaud similar actions by comrades who distribute the goods: as as we said earlier the aims are the same.

The burning of money is a symbolic action speaking for itself. These little pieces of paper that turned into ashes within seconds have managed, in even less seconds, to destroy lives, relationships, to transform the human and her desires by transforming life into indexes, digitalising feelings and experiences, simplifying the feelings of joy and misery down to the ‘alternatives’ – I have/ I have no money.

As for the action itself it took place exactly as planned. Our getaway was relaxed and with no unexpected incidents. We used bins to block off some roads precautionary while we made sure to know the movements of the cops before and during the action. It is telling that pigs of the Z force (motorcycle cops –trans.) were sitting around confused by the fountain on Egnatia Ave, obviously waiting for reinforcements and tried to approach only when we were already gone.

We are consciously and actively in solidarity with every other action sabotaging capitalism within the urban environment in which we act.

PS 1. A warning toward the “macho Greeks” who might want to become heroes: they’ll receive the treatment they deserve, exactly as it happened when one of them was spotted to be calling the cops – he was chased, along with the bunch who were about to intervene. But as the saying goes, “the mother of the fast one has never mourned”

PS 2. We can only laugh at the misinformation of the media about supposed clashes with repression forces, trolleys filled with goods that we never managed to hand out etc…

PS 3. Of course we support the appropriation of money for the needs of the movement, it is just that we wanted to give a different context to this particular action.”

Comacchio, Ferrara: TSO [compulsory psychiatric treatment] and Teargas (Italy)

Saturday, June 12th, 2010

This communiqué, written by anarchists from Ferrara (northern Italy), exposes an appalling episode that occurred in Comacchio, a town in the province of Ferrara. Apparently just a provincial story, but one that reminds us of the unacceptable conditions imposed by this murderous system, a story that concerns all of us.

Psychiatry makes recourse to more and more terrible means to take away the freedom of those whom it considers deviant according to its biased vision of ‘normality’.

On May 28 2010, in a lively town in the province of Ferrara, where a reactionary rightwing mayor has just been elected, a 34-year-old man was subjected to the hideous activity of psychiatric doctors and of their best mates in uniform (police and carabinieri-paramilitary police).

It all started when police were alerted that a man had entered a church and started swearing during the mass. Eventually the man went outside a bar, where he exhibited some martial arts postures. This is what the local press reported, as it depicted the man as ‘a public danger, someone to be scared of’. (more…)

Police lack sense of humour (Italy)

Monday, May 31st, 2010

From Lecce, Italy. The Church and the State, a long story of collaboration.

An anti-religion demonstration took place in the centre of Lecce [southern Italy] on April 30, with an exhibition, leaflets, megaphone and discussions on sexuality, abortion, personal freedoms, obscurantism. All these questions are obsessively brandished by the Church, as it tries to intrude its tentacles in the intimacy of everyone.

Nothing strange so far, except that the terrible demonstrators, just for fun, were offering desecrated wafers, wine of the Madonna and sweets of free love to passer-bys. Funny games were also being played to cheer the sunny afternoon of the very bigoted and bourgeois city of Lecce. But, as everybody knows, the pigs in uniform don’t like having fun except when they massacre those who end up in their barracks and police stations. (more…)

In The Most Free State of the World (France)

Friday, March 19th, 2010

Since 1945, they want us to believe that the most serene freedom has arisen in our lifetime; now that housewives have access to all the best household appliances, now that almost everyone has the right to vote, now that “freedom” of speech is guaranteed by the democratic institutions, now that we are left with the listing of false choices- between exploiting or being exploited for nothing at all, and without trying to understand why, threatened to be quashed. Our anxiety and our thirst for liberty do not falter, though that is what it’s all about when the State parrots out its ideas of freedom, democratic and industrial progress. (more…)

About the arrests in Berlin : Mid-February 2010 (Germany)

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

Four friends and a car. Wednesday night around 2am, Berlin, district of Mitte.

We will not make it home tonight, other people made plans for our evening. Which ones those are, we will experience in the near of Rosa Luxemburg Platz – as we are going to drive away with the green light, a car of the PMS (the police department responsible for political motivated violence) stops our way putting herself in front of our car, while other police cars close our car from the other sides. We will get thrown out of our car with screams, on the ground, handcuffed and encircled by excited cops, happy enough to have caught us. (more…)

Courts attacked in Bristol (UK)

Friday, February 12th, 2010

Received via contact form

8 February 2010

“Last night the magistrates court next to the bus station in the middle of bristol was attacked. all the reachable windows were smashed out and spray paint messages left on the walls “fuck the law not the poor!”

we know that the court ‘justice’ system is nothing but a farce designed and run to protect the wealth and power that rules this rotten society. we know that this system is our enemy, it does not protect us. we know that to
achieve a world where we might control our own lives and find solutions to our own problems we must first fight to bring this world to the ashes that it so deserves.

this done in solidarity and anarchist greetings to everyone fucked over by the courts, probation, police, bosses, and everyone fighting class struggle against the power in the social war that is brought down on us.”
