Engie’s utility vehicle in flames at night from Saturday to Sunday
100 arrests for the anti-keuf* weekend [+ A few notes on the inflammatory evening of Saturday 11.04]
Originally from Sans Attendre Demain:
Following the riots that broke out in various areas of Brussels between the evening of Friday 10th and the dawn of Sunday 12th April, there were a total of 100 arrests, according to the authorities. These attacks and fires that broke the normality of confinement started from yet another deadly control of the cops on Friday evening.
In the nights from Saturday to Sunday, in addition to the mass attack on a police station with stones, “street furniture was destroyed and five passenger cars were set on fire,” the media told us. But on closer inspection, notably by checking a video of the journa-cops, we notice that among these famous “burned cars”, one of them is indeed very special. On its white bodywork, we can see the Engie company logo, known to be in particular as a cog in confinement (in addition to supplying energy to this world of oppression). Since domination has every interest in minimizing or concealing fires that target a clearly identified enemy, it would not be surprising if among these four others (perhaps more, who knows?) “Burnt down private cars”, there are also other similar garbage, all as harmful to our lives as each other… (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!)

Warning – Video from the English right wing mass media.
A massive riot has broken out on the border between the Hubei province (its capital city is Wuhan, the supposed source of the outbreak of the Coronavirus) and neighboring Jiangxi province, on the Yiangtzee River bridge that connects the two provinces. Thousands of angry people who have been on lockdown for months swept out from the Hubei province in protest to try to cross the bridge, they were met by the riot cops of the neighboring province who prevented the protest from passing, despite the Chinese state saying restrictions have been lifted. Rioters turned over and smashed cops vehicles, assaulted the cop lines with rocks and even stole a riot shield from one van, attacking the cops with their own weapons. We hear that no one is really believing the Communist Party’s lies that the virus outbreak is under control and that the people have had enough of the repression.
It is only expected to see more anti-social rage like this break out around the world as governments and states show their true authoritarian nature in the face of Coronavirus and the mass fear that it is creating, which is a disease of its own.
We will be back soon with a report about the influx of technologies that are being rapidly deployed to repress us all even further, in the name of the war against Covid-19!

ARGENTINA: ON THE “INCIDENTS” IN FRONT OF THE CHILEAN CONSULATE IN BUENOS AIRES ON OCTOBER 21. AN ANARCHIC AND REVOLUTIONARY LOOK.
Again the media show raises its indignant voice, they speak of infiltrators, of Kichnerism and of the left, any issue that manages to divert attention from the conflict, excuses abound with the elections, again the damn elections, but never the rebellion, never Freedom. We all know that on the other side of the mountain range they are killing our compañerxs, the rebels who face police and military, who have rifles and machine guns pointing directly at them, choose to build barricades, grab stones, fuel and their hoods.
Faced with this climate, we chose to step forward, face to face with those who steal our lives daily, or did they forget that the police kill someone every 24 hours in Argentina? It is extremely hypocritical that those who say they stand in solidarity with a social revolt defend the police, the banks and the press. What solidarity do they talk to us about? That is nothing more than political use of circumstances to go to hang their flags again when the next day they return to their well-off neighborhoods and their hierarchical logics. (more…)

Before the demonstration the media and lots of politicians were nervous and expected a violent event on top of almost three weeks of actions in solidarity with Rigaer 94. For that they ordered 1800 cops from different parts of Germany.
The demonstration started almost on time at 21:15 at Wismarplatz in Friedrichshain with about 6000 people, after a manifestation of 45 minutes took place, where the speaker read some writings about the situation in the neighborhood these days. The first two lines were built by civil cops in yellow vests and after some cop cars before the real demonstration was visible. In the front they were holding lot’s of banners and signs. In the end it looked still organized and seemed to be a big beautiful black block.
When the demonstration reached Frankfurter Allee, the first big street, two cop cars were attacked with stones. People were showing their solidarity with fireworks and banner from the rooftop. (more…)

Thousands have been locked up since the insurrection, police chase many others, and the state seemingly have social consensus from the mass of citizens for a more fascist Britain, but the fresh blast of freedom has filled our lungs and state terror won’t stop us.

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.’
Telepathic Heights evicted

A crowd is gathering. Police climbing team in attendance. Police snatch squads active on the ground snatching folks they don’t like the look of, under the premise that they believe them to have been involved in violent disorder. Prisoners being taken to Southmead pig sty because Trinity police station is full of last nights lot.

Update 30.4.11: 1 comrade remains inside the cells in Bristol from Telepathic Heights, accused of manufacture + possession of molotovs + making threats with the items. Others arrested that night have received charges or are on bail, whilst a few have already been before the judge receiving low penalties.
April 21, 2011. 10pm. A riot starts after a 160 strong multi-regional police force coordinated assault shuts down a district and breaks down the door of a squat named ‘Telepathic Heights’ in Bristol.
The cops then violently harass local people and get attacked in return. Telepathic Heights is in the busy cultural area of Stokes Croft, Bristol, where there are many bars, cafes, squats, community projects, etc. 300 people fight the police for hours and hours in response to the police occupation of the neighbourhood. A corporate supermarket is looted and destroyed, whilst none of the other (independently-owned) shops on the streets are touched in the disturbance.
Everyone is in the streets. Barricades are lit, the cops face an anger that has not been seen for a long time. It seems like it is just beginning. Bristol has been burning now for some time… it will be a hot year of discontent.
9 people are arrested: 5 from the street, and 4 from Telepathic Heights accused of possession and manufacture of molotovs.

Liebig 14 is one of Berlin longest running autonomous housing projects, serving as a space for collective living as well as community and political organising for over 20 years. After a 4 year legal process the owners of the building have finally been given legal permission to evict the house on the 2nd of February 2011. Squatted shortly after the fall of the wall in what was a derelict area of east Berlin, Liebig 14’s attempted eviction is just one symptom of a rampaging processes of gentrification which is rapidly forcing poorer residents out of the city centre and tearing apart the city’s radical infrastructure. Liebig 14 is proud to be a part of a long history of autonomous spaces in Berlin and around the world. In working against capitalism, social hierarchy and discrimination, autonomous spaces take small but concrete steps towards wider political emancipation and self-determined living. The eviction of Liebig 14 will be a loss not only to Berlin’s alternative project infrastructure but also a wider attack on projects everywhere attempting to build alternative, more socially just, and more sustainable modes of social organization. Solidarity with free spaces under threat in Berlin, Amsterdam, London and worldwide is key if we are to sustain these vital resources.
Stop gentrification from tearing apart our cities!
Support autonomous spaces!
Save Liebig 14!
