On Thursday 30 June 3016 an anarchist demo took place in solidarity to refugees, outside the Shisto concentration camp (on the outskirts of the city of Athens) following a call by the Assembly of Anarchists for Social and Class Emancipation. During the solidarity demo many witness reports were documented, detailing the harsh living conditions in the camp resulting form the EU policy of closed borders.
Over the past two months some anarchists around Sydney mounted a campaign against politics and the democratic process.
This election takes place in a period of historic disillusionment with the political spectacle and the politicians who represent it, and never before have so many parties been on offer, to direct that mistrust back into the electoral process.
On the morning of july 4th an upside down american flag with burn holes and a circle A was put up on a bridge in downtown elgin, illinois. Scattered below on the sidewalk and in nearby neighborhoods were anarchist flyers authored by the "Revolutionary Clandestine Committee of Elgin, Illinois". The flyers read:
(Pour le texte en français: http://contreletat.tumblr.com ) Today is July 1st, the day when the founding of the state of Canada is celebrated. We have chosen this day to announce that over the past months we have stolen and freely redistributed a number of quality objects and food obtained from bourgeois stores to marginalized individuals and families from oppressed communities in Montreal, occupied Kanien’kehá:ka territory.
Yesterday, a group of scumbags affiliated with local real estate companies organized a tour of Hamilton for a group of investors, with the goal of drawing in capital from outside the city. This project is called Try Hamilton and they describe their goals as a chance for entrepreneurs and developers to envision ‘city-changing’ possibilities. Shamelessly pro-gentrification, they talk about our neighbourhoods as blank slates, gloat about the money to be made if an area can be successfully ‘converted’ to a different kind of resident. Of course, for most of us, their financial wet dreams appear in our lives as violence, hunger, or eviction – and so of course we have to fight back against them.
When the group of investors emerged from the Ti-Cats stadium, fresh off the inspiring words of the city’s mayor, and tried to board buses, they were met by a crowd of forty angry people who encouraged them to, rather than try Hamilton, try fucking themselves. With signs reading, “Gentrification is disgusting, you rich fucks are disgusting”, “who gets off on evicting families?” and “Fuck you for trying”, we met them with a wall of rage that showed them what the class war their investments drive can mean.
