Anti-fascist revolutionary Michael Reinoehl was assassinated by pigs near Lacey, Washington on September 3 in retaliation for the shooting of a member of the fascist group Patriot Prayer.
Reinoehl claimed responsibility for the shooting as an act of self-defense against the fascist who threatened Reinoehl and a friend with mace and a knife. Reinoehl went to downtown Portland on Saturday night to provide security for revolutionaries who were threatened by a caravan of fascist Trump supporters who paraded through the city center.
“Had I stepped forward, he would have Maced or stabbed me,” Reinoehl said in an interview. “I was confident that I did not hit anyone innocent and I made my exit… I feel it’s important that the world at least gets a little bit of what’s really going on. I had no choice. I mean, I, I had a choice. I could have sat there and watched them kill a friend of mine of color. But I wasn’t going to do that.” (more…)

Thursday, July 16th, 2020
Vasilis Maggos was savagely beaten by riot cops at a solidarity demo.
1 month later he is found dead
The video that you’ll see depicts the brutal riot police attack against 27-year-old Vassilis Maggos on Sunday, June 14, 2020 in the Greek city of Volos, during a rally of solidarity to the detainees of the previous day’s protest (13/6) against the polluting garbage burning by LAFARGE / AGET companies and against the creation of an SRF factory by the Municipality of Volos.
According to myvolos. net, Vassilis Maggos was found dead in his room by his mother yesterday evening (July 13, 2020). “The mother tried to bring her son back to life and notified the emergency services, but it was already late. The police rushed to the spot and examined the area, ruling out any criminal activity and requested an autopsy – necropsy to determine the causes of death of 27-year-old Vassilis Maggos, who almost a month ago had been recorded to be brutally attacked by the riot police outside the Courts of Volos.
According to a post at the time by the “People’s Assembly against Garbage Incineration” the originally posted the above video on June 14, 2020, The young man was savagely beaten in front of passers-by in the center of Volos and was taken to the Magnesia Police Department. In the car that transported him, according to his father’s testimony, the police continued to beat and abuse him. The severe beating continued inside the police headquarters building. They beat him mercilessly, breaking his ribs until the young man shouted “I cannot breathe”. At the height of the violence, the police tortured him. When he asked for water, they took him to the freezer and gave him water drop by drop just to torture him and while he could not stand on his legs. In the end, they released him so that he could be taken to the hospital, because he needed immediate medical treatment. His condition was so dire that the doctors were afraid that his broken bones may pierce his vital organs”. “Amongst his injuries, he had suffered 7 broken ribs and vital organ injuries”.
Philadelphia: 9 Security Cams Sabotaged for June 11th Day of Solidarity to Anarchist Prisoners (U$A)
Saturday, June 13th, 2020
On June 11, international day of solidarity with anarchist prisoners, as a small act against policing and imprisonment we cut wires of nine security cameras in a concentrated area. We want to remind prisoners that they are with us in the struggle against white supremacy and police.
Let’s keep things conflictual, forever fuck cops, towards a world with no prisons!

On the night of June 10, 2020 the building of Criminal Investigations Department (Kyiv, 25, Naberezhne highway) was attacked by petrol bomb.
The other day appalling news came from Kagarlyk, Ukraine, where on the night of May 24, police officers assaulted and raped a woman who had been summoned as a witness. The details – policemen put a gas mask on a woman, handcuffed her and shot from their duty weapons above her head – flashed around the nation.
Same kind of news come from the other side of the Dnepr river, where police officers who killed a five-year-old boy in Pereiaslav-Khmelnytskyi were released from prison on bail.
Since the beginning of this quarantine the police flooded the streets of Kyiv. Control and police pressure have increased, unwarranted and unjustified inspections have become more frequent. Like the conduct of the police in Kyiv’s Podol: stop-and-search inspections of passersby under false pretenses, solicitation of bribes, beatings in police stations.
These episodes are merely details of the big puzzle. “Police reforms” remain a complete waste of time, because police is an instrument of violence in the hands of the State. It is criminal per se, all misdeeds of its personnel – simply extreme manifestations of monopoly on violence.
Through our action, we slap the police in the face. We appeal to the society and to every person to join in this endeavour, to not remain indifferent, to organize themselves and to resist actively. People from Minneapolis, USA are setting an example for us – in response to the racist killing of a black man by beastly policeman, they started a real street war against state oppressors and sadists in uniform.
Society can protect itself from both the crime and the police. This requires determination, mutual assistance and self-organization – developing institutions of self-government and peoples militia.
We encourage everyone to act so all atrocities of the police and the State do not remain unpunished!
We’re calling to arms!
UPDATE: Ukranian mass-media and the police confirmed that the attack on the Criminal Investigations Department of Kyiv had taken place on the night of June 10, 2020. There are reports that fire destroyed at least one office in the building, a few more are badly damaged. Some journalists have managed to ”connect” the attack with Pavel Sheremet murder case.
Video from “Kyiv Operative” shows Kyiv firefighters putting out a fire in Criminal Investigations Department building, which was attacked by anarchists.

Smash the police state!
Vienna. In the night from June 7th to June 8th two cop cars were attacked, flambéed and devitrifyed.
It was a pleasure to demolish these cars.
For us this was an action against repression and harassment.
Against the constant fear of violence by the agents of the state.
Against racist motivated violence and murder.
For us this is an action against the daily swallowing of this reality, against the constant fear.
This time we stroke back. May the act empower us and everyone else in our struggles!
We don’t want the cops and we don’t need them – neither in our city nor anywhere else.
Cops don’t serve our society. They aren’t our friends. They are not neutral because they serve the ruling order, capitalism and the ones who own the goods. Armed with the monopoly of violence they have the right to chase everyone who can’t or won’t obey: the homeless, the youth, punks, people without papers, refugees, migrants, activists, addicts, revolutionaries, …
Examples for the just mentioned institutionalized violence are many – e.g. the climate strikes 2019 (where copes tried to drive over the head of an activist) or the just happened racist murder of George Floyd in the USA.
The biggest thefts are made by rich entrepreneurs, states, banks, housing agencies, mass-farming companies and renters. The ones who get imprisoned are folks who tried to find a way out of their situations.
The cruel violence is started daily by police, military, prisons and border regimes who are legitimized by the state to keep the current local and global hierarchy in place. On the other hand people who act in solidarity with each other, who fight for freedom, for climate protection, against exploitation and oppression are being surveilled and chased as terrorists.
We are sick of being oppressed and harassed and maybe the absence of these cars will prevent some actions from the police!
Corona made once more clear the circumstances under which we are living. The ones who were hit the strongest by the measurements are those who already suffered under “normal circumstances”. Folks had to work even more over-hours, couldn’t pay their rent, got stuck at borders, lost their jobs, got locked up in mass-quarantine or got harassed from cops in parks. This new-gained power was instantly misused against everybody randomly. This is nothing new. It is never safe to be alone with cops!
Everyone has their reasons.
There is no such thing as a good cop.
Let’s solve our problems ourselves instead of calling the police.
For a life in freedom – for a society without police and their cars.
– Folks who randomly met, kept 1 m distance and were all wearing face masks.

Reporte anarquista de lo que ocurre en México en estos momentos con movilizaciones antipolicia.
Asesinato de Giovanni y protestas en Guadalajara (4 de Junio)
Haciendo suma al clima internacional ocasionado no solo por la pandemia, sino a una crisis sistemática y civilizatoria que utiliza el covid-19 como pretexto para recrudecer la dominación social, y a solo unas semanas de la conmoción por las revueltas estadounidenses provocadas por el asesinato del afroamericano George Floyd a manos de policías supremacistas, se difunde por las redes uno de los tantos casos de violencia policial a los que estamos acostumbrados en México. Se trata de un video que muestra la detención de Giovanni López, un albañil que fue golpeado y asesinado por policía mientras se encontraba sentado en la calle sin portar cubre bocas, en el municipio de Ixtlahuacán de los Membrillos en Jalisco, el 4 de mayo del 2020. El jueves 4 de junio el centro de Guadalajara se vuelve escenario de una ardiente protesta que terminó con dos patrullas incendiadas, pintas en las paredes, destrucción de propiedad gubernamental. La policía atacó con gases lacrimógenos a las multitudes y la jornada terminó con más de una veintena de detenidxs. La opinión pública ciudadana saltó de indignación cuando uno de lxs manifestantes, embozado roció con gasolina a un policía motorizado y le prendió fuego con un encendedor.
Hay que aclarar que el gobierno de Jalisco, decidió optar por medidas policiaco-administrativas contra la población so pretexto de cuidar a la ciudadanía; esto se va sumando a un clima de militarización camuflada como optimización de los cuerpos policiacos en todo el país. (more…)

Enraged youth from the Anderlecht area of the capital city Brussels, Belgium rioted yesterday, attacking cop vehicles and hurled missiles at the cops, injuring one and beating up another. The riot was triggered when a cop patrol pursued a 19 year old on a scooter because he refused to stop for a curfew check. He hit an oncoming cop vehicle head on and died on the spot. Hundreds of angry youth from the local area instantly took to the street after a callout on social media attacking the cops who had arrived to reinforce those involved in the killing. Several cop vehicles were set on fire, one youth liberated a gun from a vehicle, shooting it in the air as he ran off.
The local youth has been named as Adil and already the media is doing the state’s dirty work by sending out its appeal for calm, using his family as a weapon to suppress the anger of a local youth’s murder and against the curfew. The cops have further reinforced the area today (Sunday), even with water cannon because they fear that the area will breakout in further rioting. Belgium has been in a four-week curfew in an attempt to stem the spread of the coronavirus epidemic.
This is a clear sign of the riots and insurrection to come that has now arrived in fortress Europe, after other outbreaks of rebellion in other parts of the world, we are even aware of scum media clearly attempting along with the authorities to suppress any outbreaks of rebellion against the coronavirus curfews*. It is only a moment of time before the global backlash erupts.
First Wuhan, Now Brussels, Insurrection Everywhere!
*Riots have erupted in Bristol, China & Palestine, even telephone towers burnt around prison island UK, along with reported raids on supermarkets in the South of Italy in response to ‘lockdown measures’ (curfew!)

Recently it has come to our attention that the scum Met cops (security forces of London) have been on the hunt for military-style vehicles. Last week the HQ Scotland Yard put out a notice stating it was looking for suppliers for armoured personnel carriers, armoured military vehicles, armoured combat vehicles and weapon carriers. It also wants security, fire-fighting and defence equipment and armour plating.
In the scum’s own words they are looking for “tactical intervention and public order and firearm patrol vehicles…” They also claim that the new repression equipment is not linked to the coronavirus pandemic and the vehicles would not be on the streets until next year. This is not to be believed at all, every word out a coppers mouth is a lie. Clearly the security forces on prison island and around the world have already been planning for mass disorder for many years, with ever increasingly militarized security forces looking more like armed forces, especially since the recent ‘financial crisis’ that led to moments of insurrection around many parts of the world.
Particularly on prison island the British state and its security forces have already been investing in vehicles. A list of military-style vehicles the Met currently owns is not available to the public. However upgraded bullet-resistant armoured Jankel Guardians have already been seen in recent years. The seven-tonne personnel carrier can withstand AK-47 bullets and has a bomb-proof floor. The fleet, normally based at Heathrow, was sent out onto the streets after widespread rioting in 2011. They were also seen at Wembley in 2015 following the terror attacks in Paris.
This is a prime example that the British state and security forces are gearing up for disorder if not during the coronavirus epidemic definitely in the economic fallout that will follow. Expect to see these lumbering bastards on a street near you soon as the anti-social and nihilistic rage rises.
Occupied Palestine: Two days of riots erupt in Jaffa after 16 year old youth defies coronavirus curfew
Friday, April 3rd, 2020
The enraged people of Jaffa rioted last Wednesday, burning tires and dumpsters, in protest of a series of violent arrests carried out by occupying forces. Cops were on a patrol in the city’s predominately Arab Ajami neighborhood, when they saw a 16 year old standing with another person.The cops then requested identification in order to find out if he was further than 100 meters from his house.The youth refused their order, resulting in the cops attacking and violently arresting him, all the while more residents surrounded the cops to help him escape. A further 4 people where violently arrested, leading to the local neighbourhood attacking any reinforcements that arrived.
A resident of Jaffa who saw what happened, said: “The feelings are very tense, the situation in Jaffa is out of control. It has been a month since the situation tension between police officers and young people has been so severe. It’s not cops, they’re criminals. They don’t talk.
They hit first. This morning there was a riot between police and residents after a 16-year-old refused to identify himself. When a woman came to disperse the mess, she too was beaten. All of Jaffa is furious.
We can’t stand such a thing that the cops behave in such a way.”
States are doing everything possible to suppress rising anti-social tensions against the curfews imposed worldwide, the occupying forces have unleashed their propoganda trying to discredit the unrest by saying the 16 year old had coronavirus when all he did was resist totalitarian violence.

23rd March – In the evening when (now infected) Prime Minister Boris Johnson declared the state of emergency and the new measures to deal with the coronavirus, cops in Southmead, Bristol, were harassing young people on the streets. The police were attacked with stones and bottles and two Iceland supermarket vans were torched outside their depo. Several cars were also smashed and set on fire across the city. Young people are already always under ‘special measures’ by the police -abuse, beatings, harassment, dispersal, special conditions – and rioting and fighting back is the only real solution, not staying in your house and being afraid.
The supermarkets and the other companies which are profiting massively from this ‘crisis’, -which is solely the responsibility of the structures of power and capital-, are valid and understandable targets for the nihilistic and anti-social rage against this situation.
The lies of the media tell us that we are ‘all in this together’ but it’s clear that we are not, and never will be.
It’s the fight of the young people and the irreducibles against this sick system and this is but one drop from the storm to come.
Death to the politicians, the police and those who have poisoned this world.

If you look closely almost every police intervention requires vehicles. And even the Power Rangers need wheels. The vehicles and not radio or riot gear, not even the policemen themselves, are the key to their capacity to intervene. A mobile unit without mobility is just useless.
It can not be understood why there are still areas that suffer the militarized police ravages that do not use this easy and so effective tactics.
First of all the wheels are not punctured, but cut to be precise. Cutting wheels in any of its variety and situations [Here Manual in Spanish] is by far the easiest, cheapest and most effective method to counter its immediate repressive action.
[Make one stabbing cut with a screwdriver or sturdy boxcutter into the softer sidewall of the tyre, not the tread]
Especially organized in coordinated parties of “Wheel Hunters” (see below).
I.e. a campaign of 20 vehicles per day for a week would collapse car cranes, workshops and some stocks. To increase the khaos, also cut the wheels of these same car cranes.
We agree that burning vehicles is in any case the most effective and definitive but has a number of drawbacks: alert all the rest of cops, reinforcements are called, they usually carry fire extinguishers in their vehicles, they will be likely to initiate an CSI [forensic] investigation and request CCTV records, which could initiate a repressive campaign, if you get caught in the action they will charge you with terrorism and attempted murder, and much more dangerous, you will face a shot instead of a blow.

Athens, Greece: Attacks and clashes with the riot cops, in solidarity with the revolt in Chile (October 30, 2019)
Tuesday, November 5th, 2019
For nearly two weeks the oppressed in Chile have seized the streets of the country, carrying out a variety of attacks on repressive units, government structures and businesses. The State’s response to their insurgency, though it has caused dozens of deaths and rape, thousands injured and arrested, cannot stop the fury of the insurgents.
Today, October 30, at 1:00 pm, as part of the International Week of Solidarity for the Chilean Insurrection, we broke the front windows of an Elta post office, a Piraeus bank and the “showcase” of forced prostitution of women, “Xoriatiko Bakery”. We blocked traffic with rubbish bins in flames as barricades in the two directions of Patision – filling the road with hundreds of fliers – seeking confrontation with the cops. The clash with the State-run garbage lasted for quite some time during which the mat riot cops made their appearance and became some of the fastest runners. Pink is one of our favourite colours. We also hope that the pigs like it as they will be forced to return to the police headquarters like pink prawns.
We used the ASOEE University as a base, just as the Chilean comrades have repeatedly chosen to launch their attacks on police forces. We see academic institutions not as academic asylums but as shelters for all kinds of oppressed, rebellious organisation and a base of aggression. The best way to express solidarity is to take aggressive action. We do not want to go into lengthy analysis upon analysis. Anyway we hear our comrades from afar get organized and attack. We won’t say any more. We let them and their fires talk to us.
For every insurgent soul, dozens of stones on the heads of the cops
FROM GREECE TO CHILE SEND EVERY COP TO INTENSIVE CARE
