Fight Speciesism! anti-speciesist, anti-capitalist, abolitionist direct action news issue #8

Text from the zine:

“Anti-speciesist Action is a collective of militant anti-speciesists and animal liberationists committed to confronting animal abuse, suffering and exploitation of non-human beings through the use of direct action. We believe in the ‘No Compromise’ philosophy, veganism and actively support the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) and animal liberation prisoners. We are opposed to capitalism and the state, understanding that without both entities, the universal exploitation of animals would not be possible. Until Every Cage Is Empty!”

10 Points on The Black Bloc

Text from back cover:

“It is true that the State is not a window, but neither is it just an abstract concept. Breaking windows is not a revolutionary act and neither is any other act if taken out of context and presented as an abstraction, ignoring the intentions and strategy of those who break the windows. The State or Capital or colonialism cannot be attacked as abstractions. They can only be attacked in their material forms, their social relations and their institutions. It is not possible to attack all forms and material components of oppression at once, so they must be attacked in pieces at different times and locations.”

Creative Destruction #1

Text from the zine:

“The condos, specialty boutiques, and silver spoon bohemians invading our neighborhoods aren’t some neutral, benign process of inevitable “growth.” Gentrification is driven by wealthy developers, investors, and professional politicians, in the interest of power and profit. For poor and working class people, this process means skyrocketing rents, abusive landlords, more cops, overpriced yuppie shops, cuts to services, and the displacement of long established working class residents and shops. These are the local manifestations of advanced capitalism. And these greedy fuckers don’t speak the language of polite lobbying or moral persuasion.

Time to make the streets unsafe again! Not just for the sake of being an asshole, but because we refuse to be pushed out of our neighborhoods – forced to live in some distant periphery where the rents are affordable, but community and services are scarce. Gentrification is fucking violence,and some self defense is in order. Whether it’s repeatedly smashing the windows of yuppie businesses we hate; class-hatred motivated muggings; burning down the construction site down the block; or smashing up luxury cars with their drivers still in them – we need to make our neighborhoods a liability for capital while maintaining a sense of community and solidarity amongst ourselves. Who are “we” ?! – The fucked over, the poor, the racialized, the welfare recipients, the single mothers, the consumer survivors, the drug users, the undocumented, the disabled, the queer, and the angry. Let’s find each other and take back what’s rightfully ours!”

Guide To Closed Circuit Television Destruction

Text from the zine:

“The gaze of the cameras does not fall equally on all users of the street but on those who are stereotypical predefined as potentially deviant, or through appearance and demeanour, are singled out by operators as unrespectable. In this way youth, particularly those already socially and economically marginal, may be subject to even greater levels of authoritative intervention and official stigmatization, and rather than contributing to social justice through the reduction of victimisation, CCTV will merely become a tool of injustice through the amplification of differential and discriminatory policing.” “an instrument of social control and the production of discipline; the production of ‘anticipatory conformity’; the certainty of rapid deployment to observed deviance and; the compilation of individualised dossiers of the monitored population.”

How it is to be Fun

Text from back cover:

“So you caught wind of some of the media hype about the black bloc or maybe you saw us at a protest doing what we do and now you want in. Sweet, welcome! We’re not an organization so you don’t have to sign up anywhere, we are people all over the world who employ a certain tactic against domination when we see fit to do so and we’re excited to meet you. Together we’ll create and destroy history. However, before crossing that line into illegality with us there are some things you could benefit from knowing and considering.”

How To Organize an Insurrection

Text from the zine:

“We humbly present one of the first inside reports from participants in the upheavals that shook Greece after the police murder of 15-year-old Alexandros Grigoropoulos in the anarchist neighborhood of Exarchia on December 6. This is only the first set of answers to come in from our Greek comrades. We hope shortly to receive further perspectives from other elements of the Greek uprising, so we can provide a comprehensive background on the context and dynamics of the revolt.”

Sabotage As One of the Fine Arts

Text from back cover:

“Sabotage is thus an action that serves as a propellant against the unreality that oppresses us. A practice that has not gone unnoticed by ideological recuperation, which has transformed it into “terrorism” (the professionalization of sabotage that has done no more than reinforce the system, due to its centralist, hierarchical and militarist character). Today, what is proposed is not the creation of an armed organization of this type, but widespread attack by small affinity groups, uncontrollable by any higher organization, that come together and dissolve like the lunar tides. The tides that are born of the awareness of how bad things are and of the worsening that awaits us due to events.”
