Athens, Greece: Incendiary Attack On G4S Security Company Vehicle

via actforfreedomnow:

“And just a little bit below the number of your repression, they had opened a penetrating hole, the same size as a submachine gun, from where the enemy overtly stripped you down day and night in the most ruthless way, and killed whatever you held secret and kept inside you. From there, they fired their murderous bursts incessantly upon you, and raked your body in its most sacred and inviolable moments. It’s the hole through which your enemy vomited out their worst kind of hatred with the worst rabies. It’s the relentless, most tyrannical controller and the worst killer of your private, hidden self. (…)
It’s the spy hole, which tore apart the most unsuspected, the most own or private time of yours; as soon as you saw the glossy, cold eye of the hangman-checker peering through and permeating your inner being. (…)

 

Oh resentful eye, how I wish to seal you once and for all! To permanently end the sinister stripping and rapine of the soul in the hands of executioners. Oh snitch of my most intimate gestures, how I hate you, and how I yearn for your death! Your destruction! Your doom!”
In the early morning hours of Tuesday, April 29th, 2014 we torched a technical services car of the G4S security company (formerly Group 4 Securicor) at the junction of Karaiskaki and Smyrnis streets in the Rentis-Nikaia region.
This company is one of the largest operators of the private parapolice institution worldwide. It operates and manages private prisons in England and America while being responsible for at the “wall of shame” in Palestine. In Greece, it has the largest fleet of armored cash-in-transit vehicles, to safely transport the wealth of banks and other businesses, it has equipped most of the country’s prisons with the latest electronic security systems, and will assume the management and operation of concentration camps for migrants.
Our action is part of the promotion of activities against the Greek government’s intention to pass the new bill for special conditions of detention and maximum security facilities in the Domokos prison.
Solidarity with imprisoned and prosecuted fighters.
Struggle until freedom, against the modern totalitarianism, by any means necessary.
“Woe to those who will accept prison as a life condition”
[The quotations come from a narrative of the 1990 Alikarnassos prison rebellion (on Crete), by ex prisoner Yannis Petropoulos.]

*Tyres being let down

*Damage to a temporary jetty in the River Lune

Thousands of pounds worth of damage was caused at a site at Crossgills Farm, Lancaster.

Police said: “Eight vehicles, including excavators and dumper trucks, were damaged to the tune of thousands of pounds at the weekend.

“Tyres have also been let down and sand put into fuel tanks.

Former ELF Member Pleads Guilty to Arsons; Snitches on Friends for Reduced Sentence

from anarchist news

Tomorrow, May 5, 2014, Liam Mulholland will be sentenced for his involvement in a 2003 ELF arson.

Mulholland pleaded guilty to setting fire to a house at Mystic Forest housing development in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on March 21, 2003. Spray painted on the garage of a neighboring house were the words “ELF – No Sprawl.”

In Michigan, the mandatory minimum for this kind of property destruction is five years in prison. However, the government has requested a reduced sentence because of Mulholland’s “cooperation” with the federal government.

From his plea agreement and the Government’s Sentencing Memorandum, it seems Mulholland handed the feds a lot of information. He claimed involvement in several more ELF and ALF actions, including arsons that destroyed two homes at another housing development in Michigan in June of 2003; using incendiary devices to destroy chicken delivery trucks in Bloomington, Indiana in May of 2002; an arson at a housing development in Bloomington, Indiana in June of 2002; and a failed attempt to set fire to a pumping station in Stanwood, Michigan, in September of 2003.

Mulholland also provided feds with the names of the other activists with whom he carried out these actions—as well as where and how they traveled, where and when they planned and discussed their actions, what they purchased for the actions, how they disposed of the purchased items, and how they carried out each action.

The government is requesting a sentence of 18 months for Mulholland—a reduction of 42 months from the state’s mandatory minimum—because his cooperation will aid the government in cracking down on the other ELF and ALF suspects: “The government has determined that the defendant’s cooperation to date amounts to substantial assistance in the investigation or prosecution of others.”

The agreement also asserts that, because of his cooperation, all his charges related to the other admitted ELF and ALF arsons will be dismissed.

And it seems that Mulholland isn’t the only one snitching. The Sentencing Memorandum states that, though Mulholland often asserted that he was simply “along for the ride” during these actions, the feds have received contradictory information: “According to witnesses, it was the defendant who had the expertise to construct incendiary devices and did so for both the arson of the delivery trucks at Sim’s Poultry, as well as the attempted arson of the Ice Mountain pumping station.”

Teen Attacked By Squirrel While Taking “Selfie”

squirrelattack1

A photo op with a squirrel that went awry has left a teenager flustered but unhurt.

Seventeen-year-old Brian Genest, of Auburn, said Thursday he saw what appeared to be a friendly squirrel on a hand rail while walking through John Chestnut Park near Tampa, Florida. He was on a trip looking at colleges.

Genest took a selfie of himself and the squirrel. But the flash and noises from his camera phone scared the squirrel, which climbed under his shirt and hung onto his back before scampering back out.

“He was just in that spot where my arm can’t reach him,” Genest said. “I threw myself on the ground, and that scared him off.”

Genest’s mother, Paula Wright, snapped photos of the hoopla, originally posted to his Instagram feed along with his selfie.

Genest had approached the squirrel making clicking sounds with his tongue to get closer. His mother said the spectacle Saturday taught him a lesson.

“I think he got a little lesson from the squirrel that he’s not really its buddy,” she said.

She said neither her son nor the squirrel was harmed.

Bird Tries To Abduct Tiny Dog

Source

The owners of a small dog suspect an eagle or other large bird attempted to carry it away from their home near Cashmere.

Marcia Green says after she let her Shih Tzu named Truffle into the yard April 23 she heard loud barking and then silence.

The Wenatchee World reports Truffle was gone. Green began looking and found it about 300 feet from the house, barely conscious.

A veterinarian treated the dog for six puncture wounds, a punctured lung and broken ribs.

Green didn’t see the bird she believes picked up her 7-pound dog and then dropped it. Green and her husband now accompany Truffle when it’s outside.

Two Steps Back: The Return Of Nonviolence In Ecological Resistance

by Oxalis

A shortened version of this article appears in print in the Spring 2014 issue of Black Seed. This version includes more historical context of the critiques presented.

At the turn of the century, Green Anarchy’s critique of civilization and uncompromising support of militant tactics was a challenge to anarchists and brought a number of new debates to the surface. Green Anarchy also existed within a space that adopted a combative approach towards ecological struggles with a series of high profile attacks, actions, blockades, and the like taking place across the United States. It was the years of black blocs at summit protests, the Earth Liberation Front (ELF), and other confrontations that tossed the question of nonviolence to the side in favor of a multifaceted approach embracing a “diversity of tactics.”
