Fuck Seattle! Fight Now!

SDAC releases new poster

Ten years after Seattle many in in radical movements are looking to that day as an example of how we should organize, and this approach has led us down a route of tactical repetition. In the days since Pittsburgh it has become clear to many of us that not only have we begun to see another way of fighting, we have begun to construct a whole other way of approaching action, an appraoch based in fluidity, affinity, and the ability to shift with circumstances. Gone are the days of the large scale mass protest with tactics planned down to the last detail, plans that can never adapt to any change in circumstance. Seattle was 10 years ago and even though it is an action that inspired many of us to get involved the conditions have changed. From the expansion of the police state to the construction of our spaces around the concept of “security” the state has become that much more pervasive. In the midst of this we have begun to find new ways of organizing, fighting, and moving that are more adapted to this shifting terrain. The static tactics of the past no longer are effective against an ever shifting state apparatus which has spent the last 10 years figuring out how to defeat these tactics. It is time to stop looking into the past and start seeing ourselves as the harbingers of the future.

Call

The catastrophe is real and climate change is one of its many symptoms. The COP15’s inevitable talk of “saving the world from the climate crisis” is an elaborate hoax to disguise the COP15’s true purpose: to restore the legitimacy of global capitalism by inaugurating an era of “green” capitalism. A new rhetoric of “saving the climate” will exist to justify their repression, their fortified borders, their colonial resource wars. To give the Emperor new clothes. Our response to this astounding lie is an uncompromising and absolute NO to their system.

More has to be shaken than our holiday habits to sustain the world for times to come. It would be foolish to pin our hopes upon the very people who continue to kill off the planet for money. At Copenhagen, they will argue over how to properly create a market to commodify and so pollute the biosphere, dispossessing millions of people from their land to profit from destroying what remains of our earth. Governments and corporations will not sacrifice their growth to reduce carbon emissions, or only do so in order to create a new authoritarian regime for themselves.

The entire rhetoric of the “climate crisis” and the “financial crisis” is a cynical maneouvre by the state spin-doctors to deny the all-encompassing crisis of self-declared civilization. The COP15 will only attempt to hide the war that capitalism is waging against all life on the planet, a war that has spread across the entire globe for the last five hundred years, a war that encompasses the totality of even the oceans and atmosphere. In the midst of war, one does not talk of management and “technical solutions.” You cannot fight a war by pretending the war does not exist, by blinding yourself to repression and becoming complicit in accepting the false-promise of a petit bourgeois tranquility. Instead, one recognizes the enemy. One chooses a position. One fights.

Only by ridding ourselves of those who claim to be representing us and by defeating the ideology of endless economic growth, industrial production and consumption can we take control of our lives and planet. It is time to state: we are going to consciously attack the structures supporting the COP15: we will break through the lines of their police; we will refuse to negotiate with warmongering governments and the embedded media; we will refuse to side with sell-out NGOs and all the would-be managers of protest; we will refuse all governments and governance and not just de-legitimize the present ones. It is time to state why we think that insurrection is needed to actually begin the change everybody is so desperate for. Acting together in fundamental opposition to those in power we might get a first glimpse of the richness and opportunities possible when ideas, experiences and concepts are shared amongst people from all over the world.

On with the international brigades!

It’s social war not climate chaos!

11.30.2009 Antifa set up NSF ambush

A post by the National Socialist Front, based in northwest Chicagoland, describes two members fighting off six antifa after an attempted ambush on November 23.

Like most other neo-nazi reports, that’s not how we heard it.

Piecing together overheard rumors and reading between the lines of the NSF report, it seems the NSF wasted several months communicating with someone claiming to be interested in starting a chapter within Chicago itself. The two neo-nazis met with this person at a restaurant on the southside, but at some point they realized what was going on and either flashed or drew a knife. The restaurant owner noticed this and called the police as a brawl broke out. One antifa may have been stabbed, but the injury was minor.

The police arrived and detained, possibly arresting the NSF members for their weapons. Either way, the neo-nazis probably had to ask the cops for a ride home after discovering their disabled or damaged vehicle.

The NSF was probably looking to start a new chapter to become more public and more aggressive in preparation for their announced “White Pride Worldwide” march, scheduled for March 21, 2010, apparently in Chicago proper. Though based in the burbs, some of their members were seen at a Christian Identity meeting held on Chicago’s northwest side several months ago; in the wake of the arrest of Bill White and the collapse of the IL ANSWP, the NSF could be positioning themselves as a dominant faction of the Chicagoland white power movement.

Hopefully, this will cause some hesitation and confusion as the NSF tries to grow, as there are probably a few more false relationships budding under their noses. It shouldn’t be long before this WP group devours itself, just like many before it

Two major pathways, yesterday and day before yesterday in response to the eviction housing project in central Berlin

Continued wave of repression against the autonomous spaces in Berlin. The last ten days of heightened confrontation between the State and old occupations. On the pretext of some burning car last week, the police invaded without a warrant in housing projects of Limpigkstrase 14 and XB Limpigk (the words of the cops asked if the arrest was “going to deal with bureaucracy after) and the first building in danger eviction due to litigation with the owner.

On Tuesday, 600 police force carried out the eviction of the housing project Brounenstrase 183, which has sparked protests in the street number.

Course attended by over 1000 people were on Wednesday night, while an even greater progress was made this evening, attended by over 2000 people. The state fared in the center together with approximately equal number of policemen, who were skirmishers throughout the center. The state tried twice making chains to go to the house and blocked by police who threatened to disband. The police presence was particularly challenging following the new Trent repression by exhaustive psachtiri in concentration, armor, running on the side of the road, others to contemplate from scaffolding and vans to block the demonstrators in blocks with no way out, requiring the people to dissolve.
