We are enemies of power and domination. We want the end of every form of exploitation. We aim for the absolute destruction of authority and of the capitalist system. The symbols and the consequences of capitalism and exploitation are everywhere. So we just had to take a clear decision, choosing to take the side of those who are oppressed and attacking the system and its accomplices: direct action for self-determination and total liberation! It doesn’t matter how small is the action compared with the giant monsters we are fighting: it’s action and not just promises at election time, it is the proof of the fact that the fight isn’t over.
La Passe gets spray-painted, a few bourgies someplace reportedly throw a temper tantrum
La "Passe" means a few things in French. Beyond referring to a "pass", like a theater pass or a peep show pass, namely, in Quebec lumpen speech it also has the connoting of fucking people over (like being conned), or to bluntly rape someone. We still use the expression se faire PASSER un sapin, that transliterates to the metaphor "being fucked with a cone tree", a colorful semantic variant on "being fucked over". More rarely it's used in tour de passe-passe, a magic trick of illusion. ALso, La Passe is a fairly-dubiously radical social center located between the Plateau and Mile End, hands down the trendiest and some of the wealthiest neighborhoods in Montreal.
Two alleged members of an anti-gentrification anarchist group were ordered to stand trial Wednesday for participating in a riot May 1 by masked and black-garbed vandals who caused more than $100,000 in damage to new housing in North Philadelphia.
The west Olympia police station sustained a large amount of damage early Friday morning when suspects broke nearly all of the station’s windows, painted graffiti on the outside walls and put super glue in the locks.
Lt. Paul Lower said the vandals struck the station, located at 221 Perry St., sometime between 3:15 and 3:30 a.m., just after one officer left the station, and right before another officer returned.
In the days following the one-year anniversary of Michael Brown's death at the hands of Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson, there were multiple sightings of anti-police graffiti throughout the Central District.
SANTA CRUZ, Calif. —A group of 20 people dressed in black clothing, similar to Black Bloc activists, carried banners promoting violence against police officers, Santa Cruz police said Thursday.
The demonstrators appeared in downtown Santa Cruz a few minutes before midnight on New Year's Eve. One black banner had pink spray paint reading, "MORE DEAD COPS."
From the initial revolt in Ferguson last August to the demonstrations in Oakland and Berkeley last week, property destruction has been central to a new wave of struggle against police violence. But what does vandalizing businesses have to do with protesting police brutality? Why break windows?
