Banks smashed in Bristol (UK)

Thursday, June 2nd, 2011

1 June 2011

From IMC UK:

Action against banks claimed in Solidarity with Stokes Croft rebels.

In the early hours of June 1st TWO banks on Gloucester Road in Bristol had the majority of their windows and ATMs smashed out with hammers. This was in despite of the still increasing number of high quality security cameras along that stretch of road and the surrounding area, and despite of the fact that those involved knew it was a well used police route. Bleached clean hammers were used to avoid finger prints and masks and all disposable clothes were used for the cameras. (more…)

Solidarity action for young Christian Serrano, killed by police (Philippines)

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

Subject: AGAINST VIOLENCE! AGAINST AUTHORITY!

MAY 21 an action against police violence occur in Makati City with the participation of some autonomous individuals who drop a banner in Mantrade fly-over stating HUSTISYA PARA KAY CHRISTIAN SERRANO NA PINATAY NG PULIS “TUTULAN ANG KARAHASAN” (JUSTICE FOR CHRISTIAN SERRANO WHO WAS MURDERED BY COPS “DISSENT VIOLENCE”) and after hand-outs leaflets to all by passers.

MAY 23
2pm we went to the preliminary hearing of the accused police of murder in Makati City Justice Hall to give a support with the victims family. We can’t go inside to the justice hall because it is so full of people so we wait outside and post our banner.

This action is a support and also our way to show sympathy for the family of Christian Serrano 13 yrs.old a scavenger who was killed by cops, who falsely thought that the young boy was a thief; he is also one of a thousand victims of unstoppable police violence in this country.

We fearlessly condemned this act of unjustifiable killings of police and we will pursue this campaign against police oppression and violence until the people realized that police authorities are not the one protecting the ‘human rights’.

Montreal, QC : Greek consulate disrupted in solidarity with anarchists and immigrants (Canada)

Tuesday, May 17th, 2011

16 May 2011

“On Monday, May 16th a dozen people created a disruption at the Greek consulate in downtown Montreal located at 1002 Sherbrooke West on the 26th floor. We entered the office chanting slogans of solidarity to anarchists and immigrants facing heavy repression at the hands of the Greek state and organized fascists. Furniture and plants were overturned and hundreds of fliers were scattered. One office employee attempted to detain a comrade but failed. Outside people displayed a banner stating “(A) Flics-Porcs-Assassins, Solidarité contre la reprèssion d’État en Grèce” and handed out fliers.”

Text from the flier:

In Athens, Greece, during a general strike on May 11th against extensive economic restructuring led by the IMF, the repressive forces of the Greek state brutally attacked the strike demo. Dozens were hospitalized and one man was so severely beaten he fell into a deep coma and is on life support.

In addition, a Greek man was killed on May 10th in a largely immigrant district, triggering a police-sponsored fascist pogrom that is still taking place in the immigrant neighborhoods. Immigrants had their car windows smashed out while they were driving, many have been beaten on the street, a Pakistani family had their house fire-bombed, and a 21 year old immigrant was murdered by fascists. The police have been directly sponsoring and protecting this racist terror and have also cooperatively attacked anarchist social spaces which have been showing direct solidarity to the migrants by physically confronting this fascist pogrom in the streets.

In times of economic crisis, immigrant populations are often used as scapegoats as an outlet for people’s frustrations with austerity measures. Such racist and nationalist ideologies have always served to prevent solidarity between immigrants and those “native-born” exploited who persist in the delusion that they have more in common with the masters who exploit them.

In Canada, with a different intensity but following the same logic, immigrants are swept off the streets, jailed, and deported according to the needs of capitalism and social control. The raids, border walls, and detention centers serve to terrorize all immigrants into accepting their current conditions, just as prisons and police terrorize everyone into accepting the current order.

Here, like elsewhere, resistance movements that pose a threat to the continuation of capitalism find themselves necessarily in conflict with the police. As anarchists, we want to destroy police, prisons and the world of exploitation that creates them, which steals away the capacity to create our lives on our own terms.

Cops, Pigs, Murderers

Solidarity with anarchists & immigrants in Greece.

Let’s destroy the repressive machine wielded against all of us.

*********

À Athènes, en Grèce, pendant la grève générale qui eut lieu le 11 mai contre les nouvelles mesures de restructuration économique amorcées par le FMI (fond monétaire international), les forces répressives de l’État ont brutalement attaqué la manifestation de grévistes. Alors qu’une douzaine d’entre eux furent hospitalisés, un homme ayant été sévèrement battu est présentement dans un coma profond.

En plus de cela, le 10 mai, un homme a été tué dans un quartier ou vivent une large proportion d’immigrant. Cela a déclenché des émeutes de fascistes desquelles les forces policières sont complices. Les émeutes ont lieu en ce moment même, dans ce quartier d’immigrants. Des immigrants habitant ce quartier eurent leur vitres de voiture éclatés alors qu’ils étaient en train de conduire, plusieurs d’entre eux se sont fait battre en pleine rue, une bombe a fait sauter la maison d’une famille de pakistanais et un jeune homme de 21 ans, immigrant, a été tué par des fascistes. La police a non seulement activement appuyé et protégé ces actes de terreur raciste mais elle a aussi coopéré à attaquer un centre social anarchiste qui démontrait sa solidarité avec les immigrants en confrontant physiquement les fascistes dans les rues.

En temps de crise économique, les populations immigrantes sont souvent utilisées comme bouc-émissaire ou comme exutoire de frustrations. Des frustrations qui sont créées par la pauvreté et la sous-employabilité.

On met la faute sur les immigrants en les accusant de voler les emplois des ”citoyens” alors qu’en réalité, la sous-employabilité et provoquée par les mesures d’austérités. Des idées racistes et nationalistes comme celles-ci ont toujours servies à briser la solidarité qui pourrait potentiellement se construire entre les immigrant et les travailleurs natifs du pays qui sont aussi exploités. Ces derniers persistent à croire qu’ils ont plus en commun avec les maîtres qui les exploitent.

Au Canada, avec une autre intensité mais s’inscrivant dans la même logique, les immigrants se font éliminer du paysage urbain. Soit on les ghettoise, soit on les emprisonne pour ensuite les déporter selon les besoins du capital qui a un pouvoir de contrôle social.

Les rafles, les contrôles aux frontières et les centres de détention sont des dispositifs en place qui servent à terroriser les immigrants afin qu’ils acceptent leurs conditions, tout comme les prisons et les flics qui amènent chacun à craindre. Ce sont entre autre ces dispositifs qui permettent à l’ordre de perdurer tel qu’il est.

Ici, comme ailleurs, les mouvements de résistance qui menacent le capital se retrouvent inévitablement en conflit avec les flics. En tant qu’anarchistes, nous voulons détruire la police, les prisons et le monde d’exploitation qui les fabrique et qui nous vole notre capacité de créer nos vies selon nos propres bases.

FLICS, PORCS, ASSASSINS,

en solidarité avec les anarchistes et les immigrants en Grèce,

détruisons la machine répressive qui s’exerce contre nous tous.

Fires set in attack at Probation unit in Bristol (UK)

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

4 April 2011

“last night we torched three big vans inside the “secured” compound of the probation office in saint pauls – just off stokes croft, bristol. we recognise the probation service as a soft-cog of the workings of the state. keeping tabs and tags on you, trying to make you calm down, when all within your vision and grasp reeks of the shit they would have us swallow. they don’t crack your skull or wear a padded uniform but they sure as hell sell you out as a living breathing human being, these robots of the courts should be treated with contempt at every chance.

the defenders of the existing order – and indeed its’ false critics – want stoke’s croft /saint pauls to return to the quasi-militarized surveyed “normality” of Capitalist Peace. for those who break with this cage and choose to start their battle for complete liberation here and now in their surroundings, who choose the fierce joy and sometimes overwhelming passion of a life striking against the tensions mediating their existence, this Peace can no longer exist. WE DO NOT WANT TO RETURN TO THEIR “NORMALITY”, NOR COULD WE WITHOUT FEELING THE WEIGHT IN OUR HEARTS OF THE LIE. as we have seen, this tension is not felt by us only…

in revenge and solidarity for all the arrested in the stoke’s croft riots and telepathic heights eviction, for the taunton squatters, for those raided in london, brighton, edinburgh, bologna… but mostly for ourselves.

we also send our warmest anarchist greetings to our unknown comrades in fire in nottingham, and welcome the recent attacks on banks in birmingham. we return the salute from the 1st may statement from linz.

until next time”

Shell HQ gets attacked (UK)

Saturday, April 16th, 2011

11 April 2011

“Just before midnight on Monday night some angry souls with paint descended upon the Shell offices at Duckmaster near Bolsover (not far from Chesterfield), They proceeded to paint the doors and windows in red and black, with a hint of green for good measure.

This action was carried out as small gesture of love and solidarity with those fighting against Shell in County Mayo Ireland.

This was done with rage against Shell, one of many multi-nationals who continue to rape and pillage the planet in the name of profit.

This was done because we are anarchists who are in love with this planet, and willing to strike wherever and whenever we see fit in order to defend it from corporate greed.

We know this action alone will not stop Shell, but it is a manifestation of desires to see harm done to those who destroy the planet and every living creature on it. We will continue, we will build and develop skills, we will strike again.

We encourage others to express their desires for the defense of the earth, and those with similar inclinations to take action against Shell and all other multi-nationals throughout the summer. “

International Conspiracy for Revenge burns another Bank Central Asia ATM in solidarity attack (Indonesia)

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

4 April 2011

‘International Conspiracy for Revenge’ (ICfR) have taken responsibility for burning another BCA (Bank Central Asia) ATM in Indonesia, in an action against the capitalist exploitation of Indonesian resources and state repression. BCA are handling finances for the industrial development of Kulon Progo. The actions are directly revindicated by flyers which were left at the scene which were the same as in a number of other incidents around the country.

The communique situates the actions in the context of revenge for the brutal oppression inflicted upon the people of Kulon Progo, Bima, Takalar, Padang Raya, Makassar, Jogja, Persil IV Medan, Buyat and Papua by the Indonesia state and multi-national corporations such as PT Indomines and BCA. The claim also denounced the role of the mainstream media, bureaucrats, police and the military.

The ATM was completely destroyed with the money inside, CCTV system burned out, and ATM unit gutted. There were no injuries reported and it was only witnessed when several people drove past the ATM noticing a fire.

Nottingham supermarket smashed in solidarity with Kulon Progo (UK)

Monday, March 21st, 2011

20 March 2011

“On Sunday night at 1:45am the Tesco’s on Hucknall Road was visited by some individuals. As a result of this visit it’s front door was smashed and ‘every little hurts’ was written on it’s wall. We did this because of hatred for the physical manifestation of capitalism that is Tesco’s.

We also did this as gesture of solidarity with the people of Kulon Progo in Indonesia who fight with beauty, rage and defiance against the capitalist forces which are trying to destroy their land. We know our efforts are slight, but they are sent with love for anyone who struggles against the systems of destruction and domination. (more…)

Solidarity attack in Bristol outskirts – The fire is spreading (UK)

Friday, February 11th, 2011

“We have come to terms with the extent of the damage done to our individual lives, our planet, what could laughably be called the remains of some *community* (now a politicians’ poisoned term – we see nothing reflective of what community means to us in this society) by the ravaging of capitalism, the State, social hierarchies of race and gender and our own seeming inability to confront and systematically destroy these entities as they suffocate us. This realisation can too often lead to paralysis or chasing one’s own tails in a frenzy of self-righteous *activism* that leaves participants exhausted, the quality of their struggle cheapened, and our enemies unfazed. We have assessed the terrain in which we find ourselves and pledged a trajectory of wild rage despite the spell of tranquility that society attempts to cast, living passion and experimentation despite the inertia and obsession with dead objects this society fetishizes, and real affinity despite the empty shell of social networks and meaningless interaction we are sold as leisure or *community*. Many tools are ours in this lived resistance – but none of these find any context when not held up against a relentless and determined assault on the open prison that unfolds everywhere our enemies tread.”

“Recently, the international anarchist current suffered a blow as a squatted self-organised space, *Liebig-Strasse 14* in the city of Berlin in the occupied territory claimed by the German State, was evicted by the cops. 35 or more comrades were arrested in the building and 2,500 came to the streets in anger – in the spirit of the finest reflection of our disgust and solidarity being the strengthened continuation of our attack everywhere, the struggle against gentrification and the class and social war that surrounds it (as fought in Berlin) was continued as we visited the Dick Lovett BMW garage out by Cribbs Causeway on Tuesday night. Between 40 and 50 BMW vehicles awaiting sale at the rear of the car showroom had their paintwork ruined, scratched and paintstrippered – done in this way so as not to trigger the car alarms.

We have only one question – Where next?

This action dedicated to Lukas Winkler, Stephanie Träger, Sven Maurer – squatters who fought their eviction in Munich, now imprisoned. Also to all prisoners in struggle – either side of the walls.”

Attacks against Police Station & Probation Office, Bristol (UK)

Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

1 January 2010

“January the First. Anarchists saw in the new year 2011 with attacks on both Newfoundland road police station and the probation office on Upper York street using easily found stones.

With our action, we breathe revolutionary solidarity for the next year and beyond to all those engaged in struggle against the state and capitalism in whatever forms across the planet. we especially think of those behind bars who became rebels and have risen up and burned Ford prison. we identify with them, as it would seem we both wish for jails to become ashes in this moment. each moment cannot fail to bring us closer to the conclusion we already knew – the only way out of this society that with its cctv cameras, cops, conformity, e-surveillance, snitches and repression of dissent begins to resemble the prison more closely. so we in turn continue our own project of desire for total liberation so attacking that which attacks us.

To the pigs and their apologists – we will strike again soon. happy new year.

Love & rage across borders, until every wall falls.

Anarchist greetings to the enemy’s hostages of ours, known and unknown to us, including:

Giannis Dimitrakis, Gerasimos Tsakalos, Panagiotis Argyrou in Greece
John Bowden in UK
Jock Palfreeman in Bulgaria
Thomas Meyer Falk, Gabriel Pombo da Silva in Germany
Aleksey Bychin in Russia
Marco Camenisch, Luca Bernasconi, Costantino Ragusa, Silvia Guerini in Switzerland”

Military police office attacked with molotov cocktails in Ñuñoa, Santiago (Chile)

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

1 October 2010

Claim for Attack on Chilean Military Police

THIS WAS REVENGE

During the week, we heard the news of the arbitrary transfer to Santiago 1 of the comrades imprisoned in the Bombs Case, as well as their hunger strike and subsequent one-month sentence. Added to that was the beating given to our brother Abuelo (Camilo). Therefore, we decided to arm ourselves with household items in order to take revenge.

“In this joint, the cops are in charge,” declared the aggressor gendarme. Today we answer him: “In the joint and on the streets, anyone can be in charge. It’s just a question of will and conviction.”

Sir Gendarmes, wretched jailers: HANDS OFF THE ANARCHIST POLITICAL PRISONERS. Know full well that we will not stand for even one more outrage against the abducted comrades, their visitors, or their communications.

And you, sir prosecutor Alejandro Peña, should stop bullshitting. You must know that anarchists DON’T HAVE LEADERS. Therefore, ILLICIT ASSOCIATION IS IMPOSSIBLE.

Chilean Gendarmes, CONSIDER YOURSELVES WARNED.

NO MORE ANTI-TERRORIST LAW

FREE THE ACCUSED IN THE BOMBS CASE

(We take this opportunity to send greetings to those showing internationalist solidarity in England, Spain, Mexico, Greece, Argentina, Canada, and elsewhere, as well as the Mapuche prisoners in Angol who are maintaining their struggle.)
