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.”

Cellphone Antenna Sabotaged with Fire, Bristol (UK)

Sunday, May 23rd, 2010

21 May 2010

“FOR SELF-ORGANISATION & ANTI-CAPITALIST RESISTANCE

May 21, 2010, approx 2.30am.

A ‘T-mobile’ repeater was destroyed by fire. All effort was made not to endanger any life and the mast was chosen due to its distance from residential buildings and activity. The fence was cut with bolt-croppers and placed at the base of the antenna, wrapped around the electrical cables powering the mast, was a cut tyre filled with rags soaked in paraffin. Soaked rags were also tied to the cables and tucked into the tyre. Firelighters were used to ignite the lot. The antenna was situated near the central Temple Meads railway station close to a new ‘urban development’ area.

Destructive acts against the telecommunications infrastructure of capitalist economy are simple and reproducible, as are attacks against other facets of industrial society. The system relies on a network of cables, antennas and power units to enforce and sustain its exploitation. Far from being a faceless abstract enemy, the conduits of commodity production remain attackable at many points, vulnerable to our courage, rage and joy.

We dedicate this action to the arrested anarchists Constantino, Luca and Silvia in Switzerland, accused of conspiring against a nano-tech facility; to all the prisoners of the social struggle in Greece and to all those who have begun to fight, in a myriad of places, of different tongues, races and names.

FOR INTERNATIONAL SOCIAL & ECOLOGICAL STRUGGLE AGAINST STATE & CAPITAL”

Factory defaced and d-locked in Derby (UK)

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

“Last night the distribution center of the Rolls Royce factory in Derby was targeted by autonomous individuals against the war machine.

The gates were d-locked and the walls were covered in graffiti stating that “Rolls Royce profits from the war machine.” “Fuck Rolls Royce.”

The war machine puts profit and power over the lives of people, companies like Rolls Royce are part of this. The war machine exemplifies the ways in which the rich and powerful oppress and dispossess the majority of people, destroying homes and communities, enforcing migration, and irrevocably harming land bases. Fuck the war machine. Fuck Rolls Royce. Resist Now. No more profit.”

Courts attacked in Bristol (UK)

Friday, February 12th, 2010

Received via contact form

8 February 2010

“Last night the magistrates court next to the bus station in the middle of bristol was attacked. all the reachable windows were smashed out and spray paint messages left on the walls “fuck the law not the poor!”

we know that the court ‘justice’ system is nothing but a farce designed and run to protect the wealth and power that rules this rotten society. we know that this system is our enemy, it does not protect us. we know that to
achieve a world where we might control our own lives and find solutions to our own problems we must first fight to bring this world to the ashes that it so deserves.

this done in solidarity and anarchist greetings to everyone fucked over by the courts, probation, police, bosses, and everyone fighting class struggle against the power in the social war that is brought down on us.”
