From It's Going Down
We are a network of friends and comrades across The States and Canada that seek to provide news and analysis of when it goes down. When it goes down: riots, strikes, occupations, expropriations, rebellion, revolt, insurrection, whether together or alone – we support revolt: it will fill the pages of this site. You get the point.

Heavy rains in the lower plains of the muddy Missouri river valley are washing out roads and flooding the low bases of the bluffs. All month long we've helped the work along by further weakening multiple spots of the BNSF tracks heavily traveled by southbound coal trains. Our reward came quicker than expected when reports of 31 coal cars derailed in a stretch of the Mace Creek region of northwest Missouri. BNSF spokespeople have said part of the track was removed and will impact rail traffic for days. This is not enough.

On May 23rd, the Portland Mercury posted an article announcing that the Mayor Charlie Hales ordered the Portland Police Department to begin the most intensive sweeps of the city’s houseless people and their belongings in years.

You arrived in Israel in the mid-1980s, and now, 38.5% of families from Ethiopia live below the poverty line, against an average of 14.3% for all Israeli Jews . You are only 2% of the Israeli population, yet you are 40% of prison inmates. You’re pejoratively called the “Falasha”. Since your childhood, you have suffered mockery, beatings and moral violence because your skin color is not the same. Because you’re “bad Israelis” and “bad Jews”. But these days, you are no longer simply collateral damage of the old dreams of the movement of “national liberation” or Zionist expansionist Israel today; you are no longer mere victims – you hurt fifty cops, attacked the town with stones, and although the mounted police fired stun grenades to disperse you and to protect the municipality of Tel Aviv, you blocked one of the main motorways.
On the night of May 3 a few surveillance cameras were taken down from the unfinished developments they were attached to in the Mantua neighborhood, just north of University City in Philadelphia. Removing plastic cylindrical cameras is not hard, grabbing and pulling down or using a long stick is enough to knock one down quickly.
