On Sunday 8 May 2016, while the government of SYRIZA & ANEL inside the greek parliament were attacking what little has been left in the dignity of the people in the country to survive, by voting in favor of raising taxes whilst cutting pensions, the greek riot police outside the parliament in Syntagma, were attacking those that gathered for hours to protest the even newer new, new, new, new, new austerity measures, a dire story that has been taking place for the last 7 years in Greece (since 2009).

We claim responsibility in an anti-political manner for the explosive attack on the Via Ponzio Cominio at the doorway of a building.
The attack lamentably (for us anyway) produced only property damage.
1On May 1st, 2016 people from around the world commemorated International Workers and Immigrants Rights Day. What began as an explosion of violent rebellion in an industrial district of Chicago in response to police killing striking workers fighting for the 8 hour work day has become an international holiday where the fires of Haymarket are reignited time and time again. In Seattle, the demonstrations took a radical turn that has become almost ritualistic in that city. Anarchists clashed with police and bravely fought back against pepper spray and concussion grenades with rocks, bottles, fireworks, and police even allege that molotov cocktails were used. 9 arrests were made and 5 police were injured. In Chicago 19 protesters were arrested after a noise demo in front of the Cook County Correctional Facility. Here in Minneapolis, we know about state repression. Movements such as AIM, Black Lives Matter, the IWW, and the RNC Welcoming Committee have all experienced state repression that attempting to squash these movements for liberation from capitalism. Trust us when we say that we have no love for the police here, especially after the ruthless killing of Jamar Clark. In response to this police repression, a highway overpass and retention wall were redecorated with antagonist slogans:
On May 4th 2016, we placed an explosive device comprised of dynamite and gas that detonated in the offices of Sacmag de México. Yes, it was us…

Defiling a job centre is good for morale.
In the night of Tuesday 3rd to Wednesday 4th May in Toulouse, we trashed the job centre of Jolimont with a paint extinguisher.
In this context of social movement, where state repression is becoming increasing stronger, we chose to multiply the means of struggle. Because we hate work and all that they want to force upon us.
Solidarity with all fraudsters.
On May 1st, Hamilton's anarchists and anti-capitalists gathered in Beasley Park for a march and a block party. Weather was cold and rainy, so the turnout was lower than in previous years, but we had a lot of energy and for whatever reason, the police were a lot more hands-off than they usually were (May Day has tended to be a bit fighty in the past), which is probably just as well
Last Sunday night (April 24th) one person was arrested in The Hague (Netherlands) on suspicion of pasting The Anarchist Wallpaper. He is being charged with instigation against authority, inciting violence and pasting of a poster. On Thursday the person who got arrested will be brought in front of the examining judge, who will decide whether to release him or transfer him to preventive detention.
After having participated in what was called as a demo against the police in Hochelaga on Thursday April 14th, we had the urge to share some reflections outside of our living rooms (towards yours perhaps?).
First off, we were fucking excited to see a flyer circulate that was calling for a neighborhood demo in Hochelag'. We want to be able to participate in moments of struggle in the neighborhood and not only downtown and/or in demos called on Facebook.
