West Coast Anti-Police Actions Continue

Police State

After a call out to participate in anti-police actions following repeated murders by police up and down the West Coast, anarchists took to the streets to stand up against the brutality that police dish out without repercussions every day.

Actions took place in San Fransisco, Modesto, Olympia, Tacoma, Seattle, and Portland, which has seen recent anarchist actions over the recent murders of Aaron Campbell and Jack Collins by the Portland Police Department.

In San Fransisco, over 100 people held a rolling protest to disrupt BART subway service in protest of last year's murder of Oscar Grant by a BART police officer. The protest was held on April 8th, and there was one arrest.

In Oakland, a man wielding a hatchet and shotgun attacked empty Oakland police cars and was eventually shot by the notorious and brutal Oakland police.

In Modesto, people sabotaged Modesto Bee newspaper boxes throughout the week in protest of the paper's support for the Modesto police department's targeting of sex workers.

In Olympia, a march was held in which 29 people were arrested after black-clad anarchists smashed windows at a bank and a construction company building a prison, and wrote anti-police and anarchist graffiti along the march route. Here is one of the anti-police fliers that was handed out.

Anarchists in Tacoma passed our fliers and put up posters to denounce the actions of killer cops.

Portland anarchists blockaded the intersection in downtown where James Chasse was stomped to death for one hour to protest police violence. There were 50 participants and no arrests, though the police had a heavy presence. Portland IMC has a full report and an excellent video of the action. The next day a general assembly was held, and organizing is continuing.

Seattle had a march with around 100 people, where participants struggled to even be able to march in the streets by the police. The march included a black bloc, dumpsters were pushed into the streets to try and stop the police harassment of the march, and the action ended in 5 arrests. Support and fliers about Chris Monfort, man who attacked police after being enraged by video of cops beating a 15 year old girl, were passed out, as well as anti-police fliers.

As long as police continue to murder and brutalize people, there will be people willing to fight back. Coordination and solidarity between the anarchists of the West Coast has the power to stop police violence by disrupting business as usual as long as it continues. People can only come under attack for so long before they fight back!

ANARCHIST UNITE! The revolution is uniting and focusing. One goal is to have the Homesteading Act reinstated, because until people are free to live on gthe earth without having to pay for this they are slaves. We shal set the captives free! another goal is to rid the USA of corrupt politicians and Mafia (who killed the US President, Kennedy, and his Attorney General brother, Robert, decades ago). There are other goals, and I have a cd of the handbook for the revolution for anhyone who wishes a copy, whiuch also describes how I came to be General Mayhem in the revolution to reinstate the constitution, oust Homeland Insecurity (a Nazi-front!).
The recipe for change is this. Form small, unknown to each other, groups and do leisurely hit and run strikes. Shooting out electrical transformer stations, while sending a letter or two to the correct people in places of power with your demands (be reasonable and keep it short and anonymous).
Please, if you want to join the revolution for people's freedom in the USA, read or know the US Constituion. We have a right and duty to revolt and even kill corrupt politicians. Do not act out stupidly. If you want to be part of the revolution you can send for my cd. Youy can also e-mail and call (alot of times, leave it on their tape machines over the weekends, anonymously, from pay phoines) demand the Homesteading Act be reinstated. This will decrease crime and poverty and should be supported by the police as well. It will decrease recitivism also. WHen there are not enough jobs, and the American people are too scared to take care of there own, then people will do crime=unless they ar efree to use the earth for their survival.
Keep your eyes and ears open for us from the revolution for the people's freedom in the USA.
Peace and Love for sure, but hate and war sometimes. General Mayhem, Major Crisis, Corporal Chaos and Private Littlewar.

In the text I forgot to state who to call to encourage the reinstatement of the Homesteading Act. Call or email all Senators and Representatives as well as local representatives. This will show what "the people" want-and demand.
I do instigate the shooting out of electrical transformer stations throughout the USA. This will disrupt the taxpayer base that supports the funding of foreign wars. The people's taxes need to be "reapportioned" BACK TO THE PEOPLE. Until the people get back the control of their own taxes things won't get any better for the common people. The idea of reapportioning taxes has become just too astounding of an idea over the past few decades, BUT THY WILL BE DONE!
This country was founded on Anarchy and the constitution says it is our duty. Not stupid violence, but planned, constitutional, civil disobedience. What we need are more civilians who are just plain pissed off enough, and thoughtful enough, to make these efforts meaningful and worthy.
