A demonstration outside Hasanuddin University (Unhas) I, Makassar Perintis Independence Street, took place as a series of demonstrations of community and student alliances of various regions. During the end of the demo today, comrades stopped two official state cars, brought the drivers out and trashed the vehicles. According to corporate media 19 people were arrested in the nearby area in a police round-up.
At September, 26, 2019, two cars of the Forestry Service South-Sulawesi Province (Makassar-Indonesia) had been damaged, by breaking all the windshields and then turning it in the middle of the road.
Here is the communique from that action:
1. We are angry because the country along with the Army and Police violently chased, evicted, fired, and killed our brothers in Papua, Kulon Progo, Urut Sewu, Bara barayya and Polongbangkeng.
2. We are angry because the government continues to attack us with torturous rules.
3. We are angry because the capitalists continually try to destroy our lives, destroy nature, burn forests, heap the oceans, destroy mountains, displace the living space of each species, build artificial buildings, to control what we should and should not consume.
4. We are angry because the media are preaching everything that is not important, eliminating cases of murder until the slaughter and continuing to work with the authorities to destroy the struggle of our combatants who fight for a better life.
5. There is no compromise for rulers and capitalists.
Below are link/news about that action:

Makassar, Indonesia, August 21st, 2019: Dozens of Makassar citizens took direct action (blocking the road) in front of the Hasanuddin University to convey solidarity with West Papuans who received racist acts and violence from the military, police and ultra-nationalist civil militias.

MAKASSAR CITIZENS SOLIDARITY FOR PAPUA
1. STOP TORTURING PAPUANS RIGHT NOW!
2. PAPUANS ARE FREE TO CHOOSE THEIR OWN WAY (TO FREEDOM)
3. TNI (Indonesian Armed Forces), POLRI (Indonesian Police Force) AND FASCIST CIVIL MILITIAS, STOP YOUR RACIST ACTS, YOU DICK SHIT!

The State and Capitalism are an inseparable unit of criminals and destroyers. Many bigoted leaders are gathering to consolidate their crimes. Eventually there will be a situation where the workers, the fishermen, the urban poor and all sectors of society who are subjected to oppression will reach a boiling point of anger and disgust.
Capitalism, which is a social relation, has turned the masses of humanity into passive human beings, limiting themselves only to the creation of profit. The purpose of work is to keep the world revolving around society being divided into two classes: the Bourgeoisie and the Proletariat, or more simply put- the oppressor and the oppressed. (more…)

Pandang Raya (Makassar) has been demolished to the ground. Friday 12 September, at 5 o’clock in the morning. Pandang Raya inhabitants and other rebels, build a barricade across the street with wood, tires, and rocks. At 6am, there’s appearance of pigs without uniform watching the blockade. Two of them watching the blockade close by. About an hour more, police vehicles filled with 600 pigs in uniform, including 365 the notorious Brimob (special police–my ass). Not long after that the battle began: Pandang Raya combatants throw molotovs, rocks, and other traditional weapon (such as arrows). The resistance were responded by huge blows of water canons and after that, large numbers of gangsters, who claimed that they got orders from Court of Law tried to entered the fights but were denied by the pigs because they don’t carry their ID’s. At 8.30 the pigs have successfully break the resistance. Other combatants have successfully fled from police arrest. But 9 person were arrested. Afterwards, several years of organizing side by side with anti-authoritarians, leftist, and other organisations; creating library and meeting place; in which Pandang Raya have already become their own ‘Cinema Paradiso’, have been destroyed to the ground entirely using big excavators and other heavy machines. The last stand and they were lost.
Ps: Rich people and their politicians, and also with their dogs or pigs in uniform, wanted Pandang Raya to be developed for their business purposes due to its strategic geographical location in the city.
In need of solidarity! Not money. Not banners.
But full frontal attacks of every political institution abroad and every fucking developer.
Let the fire rhyme!
The last stand and another battle is lost?
After Karawang and then Pandang Raya, which is next? Wait and see? More formal meetings? More worthless gossips and dead-end ideological subdivisions. An act of war is not negotiation. And how useless the so-called movement when this sort of thing comes.
More updates soon.

From the bottom of my heart and an ardent yearning to be with you, I wanted to write this short letter in order to let all my friends know that “a fire still burns in our hearts that cannot be extinguished”.
Being in this place is not something I wished for, but also it should not be a cause for regret. We are aware and we understand that rebellion against the State is vital, but it also entails risks. If anarchists attack something that others hold sacred, then those people will not be able to tolerate anarchism. That is what underlies all our fears. Whenever someone opposes and seeks to destroy something we hold sacred, of course we will resist with all our strength. (more…)

From Negasi (Indonesian counter-info website):
“Better to burn out than go out slowly.
Destruction of property is not violence. Violence is when you do it against an individual, and that’s not what we do. After all, those properties are produced by workers paid little.”
