During the night of 1 September 2019, at about 23:40, anarchists attacked the greek riot police checkpoint into the area of Exarcheia, at the corner of Tositsa and Trikoupi street. The attack followed the events of a massive police raid against 4 squats (mainly housing refugees) on Monday 26 August and the consequent arrest of 143 migrants and 3 others. Following the police raid, the neighbourhood of Exarchia has been turned into a “militarized” zone with constant riot police attacks against people in the area and social centers.

USA: Property Destruction Is Not Enough

From Anathema Volume IV Issue V, September 2019 via Anarchists Worldwide

Detroit trash incinerator closing —eco-apocalypse continues

"RIP dumpster" - some oogles

From Declaration News

Meditating on the closure of massive waste-to-energy incinerator reveals remaining crisis in civilization, culture, and conscience.

The news in March 2019 that, due to “financial and community concerns,” the Detroit trash incinerator was to be closed was weirdly reminiscent of news back in the spring of 1986 that it was going to be built: It came as a surprise to almost everyone in the city. This time, obviously, it came as good news; people who had been working to shut it for decades naturally celebrated the closing as “a glorious day for the city and its residents,” as Sandra Turner-Handy, a long-term environmental justice activist, member of the Michigan Environmental Council, co-supervisor of Zero Waste Detroit, put it.
