Bath: Burning cars and a 4×4 in flames – A cell of the FAI/ELF strikes back after police are cleared of the murder of Mark Duggan (UK)

Friday, January 10th, 2014

Action report censored by the pacifist-judiciary of Indymedia UK:

8th of January – incendiary device on delay left at Kia car showroom, Lower Bristol Road, Bath. Damage to the building facade. A brand new 4-x-4 and three cars also consumed by the flames. A direct attack on exploitative manufacturing industries who profit from choking our world, who also make status symbols for our class enemies. This section of the Earth Liberation Front and Informal Anarchist Federation has them in our sights.

With the cops cleared of the execution of Mark Duggan that started the riots of 2011, as good a time as ever to re-ignite the streets.

Unfortunately for the enemy, the 32 year old man arrested for the action has no relation to our group.

Active solidarity with:

– the stirrings of new struggle against road building programs in the UK (traces of which we saw in Combe Haven), specifically with the ones who won’t take the path of liberals and pacifists next time.

– Swiss anarchist Marco Camenish (who is on hunger strike and refusing work since the 30th of December) and also informal anarchist prisoners Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai in Italy.

– Henry Zegarrundo (who we recognise as a kindred spirit through his letters) targeted by the Bolivian prosecutors, those on the run, and the anarchist and indigenous peoples still fighting the highway development.

Bristol – Toluca – Jakarta – Moscow – Buenos Aires – Melbourne – keep the fires burning

Six Imprisoned For Armed Ambush On Police During August 2011 Revolt, Birmingham (UK)

Saturday, June 9th, 2012

325 receives and transmits:

Nicholas Francis, Tyrone Laidley, Renardo Farrell, Wayne Collins, Jermaine Lewis and Amirul Rehman

These 6 rebels have been locked up by the British state in revenge for the ambush laid for police by a group of roughly 40 rioters in Ashton, Birmingham, during last August’s uprising. The group of rioters, the regime prosecution alleged, had set fire to a pub to draw police to the scene who were then shot at with various firearms, forcing police, including the police helicopter, to flee.

Wigged-up bastard Judge William Davis, summing up after discharging his duties as jailer of enemies of the rich and powerful, declared – “The purpose, the common purpose, was to behave in such a way that the police would come to the scene and then to attack the police.”

Francis, Laidley, Farrell, Collins and Lewis – all young men in their early 20s – were given sentences ranging from 18 years (for Renardo Farrell) to 30 years (for Nicholas Francis), on charges of riot, arson and possession of firearms “with intent to endanger life.” 17-year old Amirul Rehman was sentenced to 12 years.

The 6 young men join thousands of others who rose up in August 2011 that are now held hostage by the British state’s prison system. Strength to those who lift their hands against the oppressors – and we wish all the fighters a quick break to the streets with dignity!!

NO JUSTICE NO PEACE – FUCK THE POLICE!

Letter of UK comrade Huw 'Badger' Norfolk from clandestinity (UK)

Friday, October 21st, 2011

During the massive UK riots in August there was a window smashing action against offices of a right-wing newspaper in Bristol, for which the cops seek a suspect from reported DNA evidence. This resulted in a local squat being raided. The cops didn’t find who they were looking for, Huw ‘Badger’ Norfolk, but made a political investigation, and seized computers, phones, papers. The newspaper, which naturally had their journalists present at the raid, tried to play a key part in the local repressive operations of the police, exactly like every other newspaper in the country. They all justified the police murder of Mark Duggan and excused the daily brutality and disgusting behaviour of the police, printing suspects photographs and spreading hatred and vengeance etc. The newspaper, known as the ‘Evening Post’ is a very typical daily newspaper owned by Northcliffe Media (formerly Northcliffe Newspapers Group), it is a large regional newspaper publisher in the UK and Central and Eastern Europe, owned by the Daily Mail and General Trust. In UK, it operates from over 30 publishing centres, and also has 18 daily titles.

1st communication, October 2011

An open letter to whoever wants to be concerned,

Two months have passed since the police execution of Mark Duggan tipped the already-fragile balance of power in the UK, unlocking an orgy of defiance across this island. A well of frustrations finally boiled over and the system was left reeling by a determined insurrection from a wide range of people. Following these days and nights of brazen attacks in Bristol (as in other places) a house is raided in a police and media orchestrated scene as part of their revenge operation for the blows they have both received in the uprising – they leave without the hostage they sought there, but I am made aware by their blunder that I am on their wanted list.

Two months have now passed of successful evasion, and meanwhile the winds of insurgency still blow in many towns and moments – indeed, for many they started long before this summer. There have also been at least two more deaths at the hands of the Law in August alone…

My decision is not to comply with my judicial persecution, and I greet D.C.I Will White and their kind reading this by the names they are known here and everywhere in different words and tongues: COPS – PIGS – MURDERERS.

I am one of those who simply cannot and will not stomach the social, economic, moral, psychological, physical conditions not of our making that we are born into at this point of history. I have never sought to decorate the walls of my cell with exam certificates, job promotions, sports prizes, status-symbols borrowed from the wealthy by our labour. I curse those who sell themselves so cheaply to buy such unimaginative dreams at the expense of a possibility of a freedom truly of their own making. Since an early age this unwillingness and refusal has put me in conflict, like countless others, with that reality. And our understanding is growing along with our fury.

We are the “lost kids” angry and disappointed by false promises, the “uncontrollable youth” unsatisfied with the paltry futures offered to us, the “useless components” who reject or are excluded anyway from wage-slavery or the “disruptive elements” who fight to destroy it from within, the “minority of trouble-makers” within the constructs of obedient-hierarchical-racist-patriarchal normality, the “hooded rioters” within the constant revolt against all that and more. We are your children, and those of your society. And it is time today for the components of that society to decide if they will be the hand trying to stop us, or the hand lighting their own conspiracy for self-determination.

Today we are here. Today we throw our rage and anarchy against the station that this order would prescribe us: an open-ended contract to be locked in the cage of modern living, of humiliating routine, withdrawn into quiet desperation despite all distractions, cast into inexplicable loneliness, into inner exile from any greater values, divorced from any connection to the Earth, walking commodities to be used and discarded.

Each day, be sure that we are faced with constant battle as each individual must strive to make their own path and decisions against the flow of the conformity and submission demanded of us by the jailers of everyday life – if the revolution is not here, truly it is nowhere. Let us live proud lives of rebellion and compassion, reclamation and antagonism, poetry and fire.

So, in the midst of this incessant war underlying all in this world – I acknowledge with a glad and thankful heart all who have ever stood next to me, with the rebels wherever and whoever they are against the disguised violence that is passivity, the disguised violence in the suppression of the hostilities and tensions around us that urge to be realised. Here’s to those who make choices that in different ways break out of line when everything in the dominant culture advises silence, assuring us of their strength and feeding us poisoned whispers of our own powerlessness and insignificance.

And of course as the clash continues and escalates with increasing recognition that everything we desire lies beyond the ruin of their rule, the enemy will carry on retaliating against those people with every vile method in their book: propaganda to misrepresent our passions and aims; the loyal “opposition” of political parties and unions presented as the democratically acceptable way we should amend our “extreme” expressions to; the surveillance, infiltration and invasion of our friendship groups and spaces; the arrest, interrogation and imprisonment of our comrades-in-struggle.

We don’t forget, and we don’t forgive.
Enough silence.
Action replaces tears.

for solidarity and self-organisation,

Huw ‘Badger’ Norfolk

just another fugitive.

Serious Crime Squad HQ vehicles paint-stripped in Bristol (UK)

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

24 September 2011

“Scientifically investigate this! Detective chief inspector willy white

2-3 unmarked vehicles were paint strippered at Kenneth Steele House, Feeder road CID’s serious crime squad HQ for the south west. On the evening of 24th Sept (sat).

Oh William this one’s for you who likes his own mug shot all over the local rag and wants to bring young people to justice, which will bring misery to them and make them a name for him maybe over a spring board to further promotion, little willy does it smell good brown-nosing Northcliffe[*], or are you in bed with the editor?

Why not look at the frustration caused by poverty, when the only vision is bleakness, mickey mouse crimes being trumped up to heavy charges an no way out of the ghetto, sure we disobey and do it for the kicks, what else is there? Window shopping and crack, and they leave us feeling hollow. We are never going to make it in your fairytale world William, so we’ve chose to back a dead cert, the one your having difficulty catching, the odds are in our favour, he runs fast, the evening post smasher.” [*]

Incendiary attack on two vans of the energy multinational GDF Suez in Madrid (Spain)

Saturday, August 13th, 2011

10 August 2011

from liberacion total, translated by war on society:

Communique:

Tonight two vans belonging to the energy multinational “GDF SUEZ” were set on fire in the neighborhood of San Juan Bautista.

The techno-industrial system has been imposed on our lives in a brutal way, to colonize our bodies and minds, life has been totally artificialized. New developments, such as nanotechnology, biotechnology, robotics… stand as new forms of domination in which the State spends billions, knowing that this is to secure its perpetuity. They sell us all these projects as the best in the best of all possible worlds, but the only thing that they secure is the continuation of the existing order; the only thing they secure is the murder of the earth, the total dependency on technology, a world where there is no space for autonomy, for freedom; and the murder of millions of people so that here in the first world we can enjoy a “peaceful” life where alienation now rises to aberrant levels.

For all this to function it is necessary to murder the earth by means of extracting so-called “resources” for the production of energy. For this we attacked the company “GDF SUEZ,” and the attacks will continue against all that which enslaves us; also for our sisters in England who, having understood that the misery in your lives is caused by the world of commodities, have fiercely launched yourselves to destroy them — from here, strength in your struggle, and may the insurrection that these days ravages England spread everywhere.

FREEDOM FOR BILLY, SILVIA, COSTA AND MARCO!

FREEDOM FOR THE ANTI-AUTHORITARIAN PRISONERS INCARCERATED BY THE GREEK STATE!

To Mark Duggan, never forget, never forgive

‘This is an insurrection of the masses of the people’ (UK)

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

In the video above, Darcus Howe, writer and broadcaster, names the 2011 UK riots an ‘insurrection of the masses of the people’ on the BBC. In this important turn in the discourse on the 2011 riots, Darcus Howe also links these events with those in Port of Spain Trinidad, Syria and other parts of the world. As shown in the link below he refers to the violence as the ‘nature of the historical moment’. Darcus Howe, as part of the Mangrove Nine, was acquitted decades ago of trumped up, racially motivated charges of “rioting”. The BBC will not repeat this video. (more…)
