Clashes in London outside Parliament (UK)

Royal Parasites Attacked – Prince Charles and Camila

The Royal couple were attacked in their vehicle by the rioters.

State Treasury attacked by Rioters:

This is only the beginning…

Soon the revolutionary violence will encompass broader sections of society as the fightback against the weak Coalition government gathers pace. These initial clashes will pale in comparison to the coming social struggle which will make serious attacks on the British establishment, the Rich, and their way of life. The barriers between those in struggle are coming down, our violent resistance finds new accomplices ready to attack the conditions in their life which make them miserable: State & Capital.

Cops, prisons, politicians, bosses, work, nationalism, dead-time : All must go – Ignite the peripheries of conflict and widen the struggle into new areas.

Decades of racist and brutal policing against the young people of the UK will spread a far-reaching fury burning with a new intensity, spreading through the generations, fueled by the anti-political sensibilities of a new generation of radicals who will not regurgitate the recuperative lies and deceit of the social activists or the political Left, and who will seek to attack directly the class enemy, organising themselves as they see fit.

For future attacks against capitalism, monarchy and the state – For social insurrection.

Solidarity with all imprisoned fighters everywhere.

Attack against Halifax bank in solidarity with Giannis Dimitrakis.

Tory offices in Nottingham smashed (UK)

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

“The Tory offices in Nottingham were last night visited by individuals who hate Tory scum. We smashed some windows, painted some messages including “Fight the cuts” and “Tory Scum”.

We did this because we are sick of politicians attacking common people on behalf of the rich. Politicians who have no idea what the lives of common people consist of, and should have no control over their our lives.

We did this because we believe in acting autonomously with the rage in our hearts. And we did this in solidarity with those arrested for being at Millbank, and all people who are getting fucked over by the cuts and capitalism on a daily basis.”

Group 4 Murder Angolan Migrant Jimmy Mubenga during Deportation (UK)

Saturday, October 16th, 2010

An Angolan man was suffocated to death by three G4S guards who were forcibly deporting him back to Angola, they used handcuffs and ‘restraint’ techniques which involved putting pressure on his back and pushing his head into his lap.

According to witnesses he struggled and shouted for ten minutes, “i can’t breathe, they are going to kill me” whilst being held down by the G4S guards. Many passengers were pushed away from him into first class to avoid them seeing the reality of migration politics in the UK.

He lost conciousness and was taken to hospital where he was pronounced dead. G4S released a statement to the effect of: “a detainee was ill and on the flight and died in hospital”.

This is the reality of the murderous borders, people who don’t fit into the correct ‘citizen’ model, who don’t have the right papers, who don’t ‘belong’ in the UK are brutally treated and deported with fatal results. Whether or not the deaths occur in the detention centre, on the flight, after deportation, during a dangerous illegal border crossing is irrelevant, the fact is Borders Kill!

Fuck their deportations, solidarity to all migrants and especially the Mubenga family at this time.

County Hall attacked in Nottinghamshire (UK)

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

13 October 2010

“The Nottinghamshire County Hall was attacked last night with hammers and graffiti. Messages of “Fight the Cuts” and “Fuck Austerity” were left on the walls of the entrance facing the trent, whilst several windows were smashed.

This was a small gesture, it exists alongside all other gestures large and small, which refuse to accept “the way things are”.

We are members of the insubordinate masses, we won’t attend your marches or listen to your speeches. We know the government will keep cutting in order to pay for the banks mistake. We know that capitalism is the crisis, and that it will continue to be.

We will continue to attack wherever we see possibilities. We will continue to attack in solidarity with all those who are abused by governments and banks in the name of capitalism. We will continue to attack in solidarity with anyone who has fought back before us and with anyone who will fight back after us.

The system is killing us and we must fight back.”

Attacks against police targets in Bristol (UK)

Monday, October 11th, 2010

8 & 9 October 2010

“Anti-police actions on the nights of the 8th and 9th October.

1. Avonmouth police garage was a soft target with 30 rocks thrown over the fence at vehicles.

2. CID regional HQ, Kenneth Steele House, Feeder rd. Plainclothes vehicles, including one sports car, smashed with rocks.

3. Fishing line strung up at 9ft for the mounted police of Bower Ashton mounted police and dog section.

Pick your moment, your terrain. Ambush.

Some angry people are not content to stagnate in silence. We recognise our brains as weapons. Wouldn’t it be nice if more people broke away from the British tradition of sitting back and taking shit from cops in the U.K and actually fought back for a change?

Solidarity with all those inside and outside the prison who fight the system.

This is for all those beaten, abused and murdered by police.”

Anti-Capitalists Attack in Bristol – Liberation for Palestine, and not only (UK)

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

9 May 2010

“Last night, a group of individuals decided to turn their anger into action – striking a number of targets on Whiteladies Road.

The list is this:
HSBC bank, windows smashed with hammers, red paint thrown inside.
Morgan Beddoe estate agent, every window smashed in reach and damage to door.
Conservative Party office just off Whiteladies Road, window smashed.
Territorial Army, windscreens smashed on their civilian vehicles in the car park.

These attacks responded to the recent murders on the aid boat at the hands of the Israeli armed forces which has hit such huge news recently (perhaps because some victims this time are white children of the Western middle classes, as opposed to the routine deaths that pass unmarked by the media on a daily basis in Palestine and for that matter everywhere else) – but this is also our own trajectory in the over-due counter-offensive against the colonisation of our lives by capitalism right here. Solidarity is best when it serves to extend your own struggle in compliment of others. This action was simple, required little planning and no expertise, hit our enemies directly and was more uplifting than any contained demonstration we have witnessed in recent time.

For many the choice of targets may speak for itself – banks being well known locally in their recent glut of recession and repossession, besides being an integral part of the systematic economic exploitation that this world is currently based on, and of course HSBC specifically bank-rollers of the Israeli state’s regime of terror. Estate agents, fronting the gentrification and driving those who cannot afford their dream further out in the age-old class war. Politicians, whatever their claims and colors, claim power over us all to repress, rule and further their own corrupt aims. Armed forces, to back them up whenever they chose to extend their influence or crush dissent.

Let us not forget the prisoners of the Gaza demonstrations of January 2009, incarcerated for bringing militant popular struggle back on the agenda in the anti-occupation movement.

Let us not forget all the prisoners, from Greece to the U.S.A, who realised that attack is the best way out of this social prison and took action accordingly. For a world without money, private property, politics and occupation.”
