Too late to stop the Ecological Collapse and Social War

Welcome to issue #1 of Eco-Anarchy

Environmental crisis, which had been warned about for decades is now a global emergency and an inescapable existential risk to the continuation of the human post-industrial civilisation and millions of species. Despite the clear warning signs that the planet had been sending since the industrial revolution two hundred years ago, the ruling classes and elites have brought the planet itself to a critical point under a destructive dominion of the energy companies, the resources extraction industries, mono-crop mass agriculture, the arms manufacturers, religious control systems and methods of mass psychological programming through media, consumerism, spectacle, intoxication and control of sexuality and thought.

Guinea Fowl liberated from Plumpton College, Game Management Facility (UK)

Saturday, June 22nd, 2019



via Biteback:

“Guinea Fowl liberated from Plumpton College, Game Management Facility, in the early hours of Sunday 2nd June 2019.

These birds have been taken to a safe place far away from the oppressors wishing to profit from selling a chance to shoot these birds in the name of ‘sport’ or ‘conservation’.

Fuck the hunters. Fuck Capitalism and Fuck Vegan Campout!

This liberation is dedicated to all Sabs, past, present and future who in our humble opinion are the cornerstone of the Animal Rights Movement.

We are disgusted that Vegan Campout has banned the Sabs and the organisers of vegan campout are sucking up to the CUNTryside Alliance[*], when they have been offered a free site to hold the campout in Wales since the start! What the actual FUCK?!

UNTIL ALL ARE FUCKING FREE, WE WILL NOT REST!

We urge you all to make a stand!

Stay Safe, Fuck Shit Up and make it personal!

Love n Rage Xx”

* Countryside Alliance is a hunters and land-owners organisation of the traditionalist right wing in UK.

Bristol: Solidarity graffiti for anarchist prisoners by Eco-anarchist vandals – FAI/IRF (UK)

Friday, June 21st, 2019

For June 11 – Solidarity for long term anarchist prisoners

Just outside the city limits of Bristol tucked away in the dark is a poultry farm (Ivy Farm) owned by P&S Mitchell LTD. Located in Whitchurch Lane, Dundry, the birds never see the light of day. Despite the CCTV, the grain silo and broiler house were both spray-painted with the words “Animal Prison”.

A new McDonalds restaurant that is not welcome is being built in Fishponds Road, but maybe the “Burger Off!” posters in local’s front windows isn’t enough. Graffiti was sprayed inside the building site – “McWork Prison”.

Vinney Green, hidden in Emersons Green on the edge of Bristol is a special secure detention unit for 10-17 year old “dangerous kids”. The unit holds up to 24 detainees. A large hole was cut in the perimeter fence and then the next inner security fence was broken through by bending back the bars, causing a second human size gap. Then the prison buildings themselves were sprayed with the words “Child Prison”, “Screws Work Here”.

Solidarity to Brian Vaillancourt who is serving a 9 year sentence in the USA for an arson of a McDonalds. To the imprisoned comrades in Italy who are fighting from inside the cells on hunger strike. To the 3 comrades arrested for bank robbery in Thessaloniki, Greece. To Lisa held in Spain. For all the imprisoned anarchists around the world.

Freedom for everyone!

‘Let’s go into the streets together, to send up our rebel signal to those held hostage in the entrails of Fortress Britain.

Anarchist prisoner John Bowden denied parole and kept as political hostage (UK)

Thursday, April 4th, 2019

ES – REINO UNIDO: EL PRISIONERO ANARQUISTA JOHN BOWDEN SE LE NIEGA LA LIBERTAD CONDICIONAL Y SE LE MANTIENE COMO UN REHÉN POLÍTICO

On the 22nd January 2019 after almost forty years in prison the Parole Board considered the case for either my release or continued imprisonment. In the case of life sentence or indeterminately sentenced prisoners once such prisoners have been detained for the length of time originally recommended by the judiciary or Secretary of State, in my case 25 years, then the Parole Board has a statuary and legal obligation and responsibility to review the case for either the release or the continued detention of such prisoners. At three previous parole hearings my release had been denied by the Parole Board on the grounds that I was a “difficult and anti-authoritarian” prisoner, and insufficiently obedient to prison authority; my actual risk or danger to the public, the prime official criteria for denying the release of life sentence prisoners, was never cited as a reason for my continued imprisonment.

UK Game Farm Map Has Been Released – “Cripple the Shooting Industry”

Monday, March 25th, 2019

From Unoffensiveanimal:

After seeing a few reports appear about game birds released from breeding farms, a map has been made public containing some of the breeding farms within the U.K.

The shooting industry in the U.K. breeds mostly pheasants, partridges and ducks in factory farm conditions, and then they have a whole system of introduction into the wild during the summer to get the birds in place for the shooting season that starts in September.

It isn’t new to see reports of game farms being visited by the ALF with thousands of animals released, and it is no surprise. As a tactic, game farms are at its weakest point right now, when mating season is happening and they need to collect the eggs to incubate them in huge hatcheries . When breeding birds are released into the wild, there is not only a loss of “stock” but also they are unable to breed the birds they need to then distribute them in shoots. Although it is a liberation action, it carries the weight of economic sabotage and finds a solution to the burden of caring for thousands upon thousands of animals in safe homes, as game birds can be simply released into the wild. There is no doubt that many of them will die, but let’s remember that all of them plus their offspring would die during the next shooting season. (more…)

Cuadrilla wants to use more chemicals to improve fracking at shale gas site (UK)

Sunday, February 24th, 2019

From Drill or Drop?

The shale gas company, Cuadrilla, is seeking permission to add new chemicals to its fracking operations in Lancashire.

In details published today, the company said it wanted to change the composition of the fracking fluid so that more sand could be carried into fractures in the shale rock.

This follows news earlier this month that Cuadrilla had fully fracked only 5% of its first well at the site at Preston New Road near Blackpool. Fracking operations, between October and December 2018, were paused at least five times because they induced earth tremors measuring 0.5ML or above. Fracturing equipment has since been moved off the site.

Today’s application to the Environment Agency also seeks permission to use methanol, alternative drilling muds and a new biocide. If approved, the changes would additionally make it clear that Cuadrilla can frack each well more than once. (more…)

‘The system must be destroyed!’

Sunday, February 24th, 2019

Let’s be clear about this: the system exists.

You can call it what you like – The Establishment, The Thing, The Matrix or the Industrial-Military-Prison-Propaganda-Complex – but it exists.

It has become trendy in recent years to pretend that this is not so, that what we are seeing is merely a collection of economic or interpersonal relationships.

But it is the system that promotes, protects and imposes all the layers of domination and exploitation that mark our everyday lives.

It is the system that tells us we have to spend our best life energy working for it, just for the right to eat and exist in the world it claims it owns.

It is the system that pays its hired thugs to beat us up, intimidate us, lock us up for years if we refuse to play by its rules.

It is the system that maims and murders human beings on an unimagineable scale across the world, all in the interests of its profit and power, and still always claims the moral high ground. (more…)

PDF: Issue #3 of Trespass Journal

Tuesday, January 8th, 2019

We’re glad to finally present Issue 3 of Trespass Journal!

https://www.trespass.network/?page_id=1472&lang=en

In this issue, which is online and freely distributed, you’ll find a translation from English to Dutch of a journal article about how a moral panic was generated to enforce the criminalisation of squatting in the Netherlands and a translation to French of a brief text about migration on Idomeni in Greece, near to Macedonia, which was previously published in Trespass 2 in Italian.

As interventions in five languages, we have an analysis of the lack of support to the ZAD in Brittany, plus short pieces about the opening of a new anarchist social centre in the Paris suburbs, community resistance to preserve a park in London, the demolition of a community gym in Athens, an (unsuccessful) eviction threat in Catania, and an eviction in Catalonia. And a report on the resquat of the watertower in Utrecht! There’s plenty more news and analysis on this website.

The language diversity contained in this issue mirrors the commitment we have been putting in towards overcoming the dominance of the English language and creating a journal that goes beyond borders. We’ve also been updating the blog in different languages. HOWEVER as you will no doubt have noticed, this introduction is only in English and we are sorry for that. We can only do so much, and this issue was already very overdue … to translate it into Catalan, Spanish, Dutch and French is too much work. (more…)

PDF: Anarchist Animal Liberation – A Collective Project Based on Outcomes & Conversations From Animal Liberation Gatherings

From the introduction: ‘This article has been written as a collective project based on the Bristol Liberation gathering in June 2017. It is intended to give people who weren’t there an idea of some of the conversations we had. We hope that it is written in an accessible way and that it is clear and of interest to both those who are familiar with the idea of animal liberation and those who are new to it.’

Against Anarcho-Liberalism and the curse of identity politics (UK)

Sunday, November 25th, 2018

Bahasa: Melawan Anarko-Liberalisme dan Kutukan Politik Identitas (UK)

Anarchism in the UK is a joke. Once symbolising hard-fought struggles for freedom, the word has been stripped bare to make way for narrow-minded, separatist and hateful identity politics by middle class activists keen to protect their own privileges. We write this leaflet to reclaim anarchism from these identity politicians.

We write as self-identified anarchists who see our roots in the political struggles of the past. We are anti-fascists, anti-racists, feminists. We want to see an end to all oppressions and we take an active part in those fights. Our starting point though is not the dense language of lefty liberal academics, but anarchism and its principles: freedom, cooperation, mutual aid, solidarity and equality for all regardless. Hierarchies of power, however they manifest, are our enemies.

Identity politics is part of the society we want to destroy.

Identity politics is not liberatory, but reformist. It is nothing but a breeding ground for aspiring middle class identity politicians. Their long-term vision is the full incorporation of traditionally oppressed groups into the hierarchical, competitive social system that is capitalism, rather than the destruction of that system. The end result is Rainbow Capitalism – a more efficient & sophisticated form of social control where everyone gets a chance to play a part! Confined to the ‘safe space’ of people like them, identity politicians become increasingly detached from the real world. (more…)

„Weitere Nicht-Nachrichten über die `Öko-Extremisten Mafia`“ von L (UK)

Monday, November 12th, 2018

EN: ‘More non-news about the “Eco-Extremist Mafia”’ by L (UK)

ES: ‘Más no-noticias sobre la “Mafia Eco-Extremista”‘ por L (Reino Unido)

Unsere letzte Veröffentlichung von Informationen über die sogenannte Öko-Extremisten Mafia verursachte einen Aufruhr in der Kirche von ITS Mexiko. Ohne ihnen den Sauerstoff zu geben, den sie in ihrer parasitären Natur für die internationale anarchistische Bewegung benötigen, die für sie lebensnotwendig ist, veröffentlichen wir diesen Bericht und antworten auf die Verleumdungen und den Schwachsinn ihrer Position.

Innerhalb von 12 Stunden nach der Veröffentlichung des Doxings [1] von Vasquez, war die sogenannte ITS Mafia, die praktisch nur im Internet lebt, so verärgert, dass sie das Alter und die Trockenheit meiner Vagina beschreiben mussten! Und sie übernehmen die Verantwortung für das „Niedermetzeln“ („massacre“ beating) eines Anarchopunks nach einem Zapatista Treffen im letzten Dezember! Was gibt es noch zu sagen zu oder über diese frauenfeindlichen, misanthropischen, psychopathischen Hohepriester des ITS-Totenkults?

Vorhersehbare Verleumdungen der postfaktischen ITS, die Verantwortung für Aktionen übernehmen, die sie nicht getan haben, eine Taktik des IS/Daesh nachahmend, und jetzt bezeichnen sie uns als „Cops“, da wir angeblich die britische Polizei per Mail informierten, dass der lächerliche „Archie The Robot“ „Archgonas“ für die „Misanthropos Cacoguen“ ITS Bombe verantwortlich wäre, die willkürlich an einer belebten Straße in Edinburgh, Schottland, platziert wurde, wo viele junge Leute rumhängen und ihren Treffpunkt haben.

Urkomisch! Und die Grundlage dafür? Der Bericht einer Mainstream-Zeitung, laut dem die Cops ein Kommuniqué (welches sich eher als psychotischer Zusammenbruch liest) von einem riseup.net Mail Server erhielten! Es ist wahrscheinlicher, dass „Archegonas“ oder ein anderes Mitglied der „Öko-Extremisten Mafia“ etwas so Dummes getan hat, um dem von ihnen gehassten Riseup Ärger zu bereiten und nun Lügen zu drucken, wie es ihnen gefällt. Nach Jahren der Scheiße dieses Idioten „Archegonas“ ist das alles was er und ITS erreichen können? Nein, ihre Worte und Texte offenbaren alles und wir lachen uns kaputt über die Kirche der ITS Mexiko und ihre Chorknaben. Das ist die Taktik ihrer verrückten Verleumdungen, die nun von einem wahnhaften Idioten in Brasilien nachgeahmt werden. Wenn dies das Ausmaß ihrer Logik ist, ist es kein Wunder, dass sie durch die ideologischen und praktischen Fehler die sie gemacht haben, in den Abgrund der Scheiße geraten sind, die Verantwortung für kleinere Tötungsdelikte und das Platzieren von Bomben an öffentlichen Plätzen, um so viele Menschen wie möglich zu verletzen, zu übernehmen. Ökofaschistischer Abschaum. (more…)
