From Void Network Indonesia

As I wrote this letter, I've been arrested for 21 days in Mapolda D.I.Y prison cell. I'm arrested for my involvement in May Day riot few weeks before. There's some difficulties that I can't really explained it here one by one, but I know for sure that this cells aimed to limit our access to communicate and therefore our further works for the network, a work that was meant to revive the spirit and consciousness to undermine every forms of obedience and submission. I believe we've agreed that it is not intellectual or academic potential that coul raise the consciousness of our surrounding that is rapidly destroyed.

This May Day we decided to heed the call for a decentralized May Day, though important steps surrounding entry nodes need to be taken if we are really not going to end the tradition of big marches, this seems like a very lovely tactical push. Of course it is not enough to decentralize. There are countless other tactical considerations like speed, opacity, and so on, but it is a wonderful effort.

Insurgent tidings from occupied Duwamish territory!

We would like to announce that our informal crew around the size of a hunting party or fire-squad went on a stroll of sorts that was accompanied by vandalism and harassment of the authorities. We wanted to shake our chains as Red Rosa would have put it and see what we could get away with. We have been putting up stickers, fliers, tags, tearing down developement signs, etc since we were little-uns so tonight we thought we’d put those skills to the use.
