Pittsburgh (United States): cop cars torched

Pittsburgh, cop cars torched



Last September 28 in Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania) around 2:30 am, three large police cars were destroyed. They were casually sitting in front of the police training center, along North Lincoln Avenue in the northern part of the city, when they were deliberately set on fire by unknown perpetrators.

Firefighters who arrived on the scene were unable to do anything, and according to “an expert” widely quoted in U.S. newspapers, the number of attacks on police vehicles is even on the rise in Pittsburgh since 2018, “straining the relationship between law enforcement and the people they are supposed to protect.” Go figure…

Munich : burning upstream fiber optic installers

Translated from German via Sozialer Zorn, July 25, 2022
(excerpts from the local press)

On Sunday night, July 25, at about 3:00 a.m., flames several meters high suddenly rose into the dark sky in the Obersendling district of southern Munich: five trucks, five trailers and an excavator of the BTP construction company burned down on its site, which is used as a logistics and storage center for several construction sites in the city.

According to the police, traces found at the scene indicate that it was an arson attack, and the damage is estimated at two million euros. The damage to two 7.5-ton trucks, three 3.5-ton trucks, an excavator and five trailers, plus construction equipment and machinery destroyed by the fire, already amount to more than one and a half million euros. In addition, 25 reels of fiber optic cable were burned to a crisp and 10 large rolls of cable and sheathing worth well over 200,000 euros.

Aufstand! For Anarchy

Aufstand! For Anarchy

aufstand.blackblogs.org

So what should tempt us to think that the Internet in particular would be a place where today’s revolutionary awakenings would take place? And certainly we are not so short-sighted as to seriously consider this to be the case. Nevertheless, we observe with a certain uneasiness that both the real and the virtual spaces of exchange among anarchists of the German-speaking contexts are fading away. Even though individual projects still receive some attention and almost every tendency of informally organized anarchism has created its own web presence – even though there are still one or two printed and regularly published newspaper projects and dozens and dozens of brochures, books, flyers, newspapers, posters and stickers which are connected to the anarchist idea and wander from hand to hand among companions – we ask ourselves, to what extent these succeed in carrying the anarchist debate into the public more than sporadically, in the (desperate) attempt to inflame at least a few hearts with the spark of the anarchist idea.

Repeatedly in the past it has been proven that if there is no better alternative, platforms like de.indymedia also have to be used for anarchist exchange. The problem is that anarchist contributions are often deleted there or – perhaps even worse – stand beside deeply authoritarian submissions that absolutely contradict the anarchist idea. No wonder: de.indymedia has always been a platform of the left and will consequently remain so. The fact that more and more decentralized (radical left) alternatives to de.indymedia are currently developing is, in our view, just as incapable of remedying the problem as other strangely conceptualized attempts to create synthesist platforms or even websites of unified organizations selling themselves as contributions to an anarchist debate.
