Bristol: Screws cars damaged (UK)

Friday, January 11th, 2013

From Bristol IMC:

on the 9th jan 2013 not long before noon vehicles belonging to prison officers at bristol prison, cambridge rd, horfield were damaged using paint-stripper & slashing the front tyres, this took place on brynland ave in ashley down. the officers are intrinsically linked to a system that keeps people down & in their place, everyday we are monitored, but on this day jan 9th those officers with damaged cars will feel that they have been watched. this was a very accessible thing to do, no elite skills were needed. our fight is on both sides of the wall & both sides of the coin, there are lessons to be learnt by all, those for security reasons have choose to fight from a position of underground & those that are a public face, networking, reaching out & bringing in new blood. this small attack was done with all the caged animals & humans at the for-front of our minds.

Bristol – Stokes Croft erupts into rioting again + Telepathic Heights evicted (UK)

Friday, April 29th, 2011

28 April 2011

UPDATE 30.4.11: OFFICIAL ARRESTS FROM THE LAST 24HRS NOW NUMBER 30 – MOST ARE OUT ON CONDITIONAL BAIL. ARREST SUPPORT GROUP FORMED : BRISTOLARRESTEESUPPORT_AT_RISEUP.NET

Rioting erupts again late at night after a demo/party against the recent police brutality – The fighting breaks out of the activist ghetto and every underdog can become an instigator, mainly due to the police causing chaos through horse charges and riot unit surges – The tension grows deeper.

One week after the Telepathic Heights raid, people gathered to fight and protest police occupation, against the wishes of the hated ‘community leaders/spokespeople’, ‘business representatives’ and other pathetic individuals pleading ‘peace’ with the class enemies.

Running battles with police riot units all the way up Cheltenham road, burning barricades in St.Pauls, trouble in Cotham, widespread disorder and violent resistance against the cops in the affected areas. 15 people are reported by mainstream media as being arrested in the disturbance.

Reports circulating that Horfield prison has also erupted in a prison riot, news of which is being suppressed. Also, a few days earlier police had suppressed a film night about the riots held in a residential area with a massive police presence, leading the film to be shown in a residents back garden.

Let’s make fighting the police a hot and fun summer delight and spread the rage into other cities – Let’s see Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool, London burning with an anti-police – anti-system fire! Ambush!

‘let’s show these bastards what a real crisis looks like.’
