Los Angeles, CA: Arsonists Attack Vivisector

The holidays are coming up and Santa was checking his list twice to see whose been naughty or nice. The name Goran Lacan caught Santa's eye as having done abominable things to small monkeys inside the labs at UCLA. Santa had his elf or in this case, alf, check Lacan's department lab records.

Santa discovered that Goran Lacan studied human eating disorders like anorexia and obsesity in vervet monkeys by implanting electrodes into their skulls and backs and invoking painful stimuli. After a long period of time, he killed them. So early November 20th when Santa was out delivering pieces of coal to those who were naughty, one of his stops was Goran Lacan's house at 3448 Greenfield Avenue in Los Angeles.

When Santa went into his knapsack to pull out his last piece of coal he discovered that there wasn't any left, just a lone incendiary device. Santa thought this was the perfect gift to give a monster like Lacan and placed it under his car.

As the sun was coming up he headed back to the North Pole to check his list for other names of naughty vivisectors. Santa wished Lacan was in the car at the time the fuel ingnited, but hopefully he will be next time.

Santa sends this message to all vivisectors this holiday season: those who experimented on primates in the past, currently or thinking about it in the future, it may not be tomorrow or next month that his alfs will find you so that he can bring you other gifts you deserve.

Santa never forgets to give out presents to primate vivisectors.

Ridley Park, PA: Sabotage Shuts Down Boeing Aircraft Plant

Sabotage shut down assembly lines at a Philadelphia area Boeing aircraft plant that produces military hardware. A foreign object was found lodged in the fuel line of a V-22 Osprey fuselage on Friday. Workers were instructed to show up to work as usual on Saturday by their machines remained silent as investigators attempted to discover who was responsible for the damage and if any other aircraft had been tampered with.

The incident was the second to cause concern at the plant this year. Last May a disgruntled worker snipped wires in two CH-47 Chinook Helicopters at the same facility. The plant was last silenced in September when 1400 workers walked off the job to pressure the plant managers to agree to a new contract. After a week a contract was signed but presumably all of the workers were not pleased by it.

San Francisco, CA: Vivisector Has Locks Glued Shut

"Just after sunrise on Halloween, a sole trick or treater descended on the home of University of California-San Francisco primate vivisector Stephen Lisberger. As Stephen and his wife Chieko slept inside at 848 Clayton ST. in San Francisco, tubes of superglue were used to fill his front door locks.

UCSF vivisectors and officials shall consider this a gentle halloween prank, but this is just the beginning. We will increase our level of tactics as long as non-human primates and other animals are tortured to death at the hands of those driven by profit and as long as the University of California shows a complete disregard for the suffering of the non-human prisoners.

UCSF -- you've already had to pay out over $90,000 for violations of the Animal Welfare Act for Lisberger's experiments on primates that include fluid deprivation, gluing metal coils to their eyelids, restraint chairs and invasive surgeries.

Olympia, WA: Bash Back! Attacks Mormon Church

Last night, under the veil of fog, we visited the Church of Latter Day Saints. We left their locks glued with anarchist messages scrawled in spray paint over their boring veneer.

We did this to show our solidarity with all who are resisting heterosexism everywhere, hopefully to spur them into action; and also because we are angry at the amount of money and propaganda that the Mormon church pumped into the homophobic Proposition 8 campaign. From their disgusting commercials to their despicable sermons to those gross lawn signs, we are sick of this parade of bigotry. The Church has to pay.

We as anarchists are opposed to marriage but we see that this blatantly anti-gay act as a threat to all us gay, lesbian, transgendered and queer folk. The Proposition 8 campaign was used as a medium to instill homophobic fear into the population of California so as to squash queer culture, it is dangerous to let these actions go unchecked and not confronted.

Liberating our sexual fantasies and desires is dangerous to this rigid system, because free people enjoying themselves in a plethora of ways sexually will eventually want to enjoy themselves in other areas of life too, capitalism doesn’t want sexually liberated people because they ask too many questions and may not show up to work on time (or at all).

The Mormon church (just like most churches) is a cesspool of filth. It is a breeding ground for oppression of all sorts and needs to be confronted, attacked, subverted and destroyed. The church reinforces sexism, transphobia, homophobia, racism, capitalism, and leaves it’s members emotionally wounded and unable to engage in critical thinking. The Mormon church teaches us to hate our bodies, not to trust ourselves or our desires. This ends up deforming us as healthy sexual and communal beings. This is unacceptable.

This is a few reasons why an affinity group of the Olympia, Washington Chapter of Bash Back! decided to attack their church with glue and paint. Let this be a warning to the Mormon church, dissolve completely or be destroyed. The choice is yours..

Layton, UT: More Attacks On Mormon Chruches

The windows of two more LDS ward houses have been shattered - the latest in a string of seven buildings targeted by vandals across the Wasatch Front since Saturday.

Windows & large sheets of glass on the front doors of four different church buildings had been shattered by BB gun-wielding vandals over the weekend.

A glass door at a ward house was shattered over the weekend, as well as a window at a home a couple blocks from that church.

On Tuesday, two more cities reported virtually identical incidents at LDS Church-owned property.

A rock was thrown through a South Ogden building near 5800 Skyline Drive, and someone used a BB gun or airsoft gun to shoot out the front window of a Sandy building near 11570 S. Wasatch Blvd.


The LDS Church has seen a lot of backlash for its support of the proposition, which won the statewide vote and banned same-sex marriage in California.

Jefferson City, MO: Workers Attack Banks After Confronting Neo-Nazi's


Mere hours after the National Socialist Movement marched through downtown Jefferson City, Missouri angry working class people trashed windows and the ATMs of the First National and UMB Banks in Columbia, some 30 miles north.

Unlike the Fascists that marched, we understand who the real enemy of working class people is and always has been. The rich bankers are not of any one religious, ethnic, or racial background. Even If one were to make such a generalization, they surely would come to the conclusion that whites that proclaim themselves Christian are in the majority of those exploiting us, not Jews, blacks, or immigrants.

We say that our alliances are with all working people who struggle against domination and the real enemy: the rich. Brown skinned workers crossing our borders are our comrades in arms, not our enemies.

We will no longer allow ourselves to be used against our comrades of different skin colors or ethnic backgrounds. We want class war. We want an end to the race war and genocide that white working class people have historically been perpetrators of. We say enough collaboration with the enemy!

The NSM and other fascist working class whites contribute to the problem directly and help uphold these systems of domination that curtail freedom even for white workers. You are class traitors. We know this. We scream this.

This time the banks got the bricks. But we also have bricks for those that help maintain the power of the rich, and who have delusions of a future of ethnic cleansing and even more white supremacy. Death to the rich! Death to collaborators and fascists!

This action was in solidarity with the PF2. We love you and your rage.

Lawrence, KN: US Bank Attacked by Anarchists


Inspired by comrades in Milwaukee, we paid a late night visit to the US Bank located at 9th and Massachusetts in downtown Lawrence, Kansas.

Though none of us had accounts at the bank, we deposited several bricks through its windows. We were feeling charitable. Consider it an act of anarchist philanthropy, a small gesture of community service. Possibly a tax write-off, but none of us pay taxes either.

We'd like our comrades to dig deep and see if they can also spare a few bricks. The banks are having a rough time currently, every deposit counts.

Make your donation after hours at a bank of your choice.

Lansing, MI: Bash Back Attacks God


The Mount Hope Church is a deplorable, anti-queer mega-church in Lansing, Michigan. The church works to institutionalize transphobia and homophobia through several repulsive projects including organized "ex-gay" conferences and so-called "hell houses", which depict queers, trannies and womyn who seek abortions in hell. Mt. Hope is complicit in the repression of queers in Michigan and beyond.

Bash Back! ain't down with that. And so on Sunday November 9th, about thirty radical queers from Lansing, Chicago, Memphis and Milwaukee disrupted the church's most well-attended sermon.

At noon, a small group of folks dressed in pink and black, equipped with a megaphone, black flags, picket signs and an upside-down pink cross began demonstrating outside the church. The group was extremely loud and wildly offensive.

The demonstration drew a majority of Mount Hope's security staff outside to watch them.

Meanwhile, with the guards pre-occupied by the distraction, over a dozen queers had put on their Sunday-best and infiltrated the church's congregation. At the signal that the guards had been lured outside, the infiltrators sprung into action.

A group stood up, declared themselves fags, and began screaming loudly. Upon hearing the loud interruption, other affinity groups went into action. A team that had been hiding under the pews in the closed-off balcony dropped a banner and pulled back the curtains to reveal "IT'S OKAY TO BE GAY! BASH BACK!". Another group threw over a thousand fliers to the entirety of the congregation. The fire alarm was pulled. Queers began making out in front of the pastor. And within a matter of minutes, everyone had evaded the guards and made their escapes.

Bash Back! operatives, still hidden among the congregation observed a person screaming that Satan had come to Mount Hope, that the end was here, that the queers were everywhere. She then began speaking tongues. The dumbfounded pastor, after regaining his composure, went on to speak of the of decadent, depraved wolves that menace his flock of sheep.

Let it be known: So long as bigots kill us in the streets, this pack of wolves will continue to BASH BACK!

We are everywhere.

Layton, UT: Mormons Attacked for Being Anti-Gay


Three LDS churches were hit by vandals sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning. It has happened on the heels of vandalism at LDS church buildings in California that appears to be in retaliation for supporting prop 8, the Ban Against Gay Marriage.

As LDS Church members arrived for services Sunday morning they were greeted with shattered glass.

A BB gun was used to shoot out five glass doors at three buildings. One door was shot out at the building on 2160 West Gordon Avenue, two doors were targeted at the Stake Center on 60 West Gordon Avenue, and double doors were shattered at the building on 1290 North Church Street.

Damage is around $2000.

"Schooling is a fundamental process of our society. It can be understood as the ensemble of techniques by which a society instructs the young in the knowledge, values, and attitudes necessary for becoming responsible members of society, reproducing the dominant social order. The bells, the classes, the rules, the discipline–all are important aspects of a controlling process aimed at molding the individual into a form more desirable to others–to authorities. Schooling, like work, is based on coercion. Generally speaking, one does not do schoolwork because the experience itself is rewarding. One does not do schoolwork on one’s own terms. Also, there is a carrot or a stick guiding your progress–usually both."

For starters, a couple of your team players left the Knapp footbal centre with a new rattling sort of sound in their mufflers as they drove away from a recent practice. Some more mufflers might just be exploding in the near future. Deny it if you like UCLA. We know they are in there.
We will also be attending the game at the Rose Bowl on the 8th to have a look around. Go Bruins! You might spot us. We will be the chaps who look like college students attnending a football game.

Jonesboro, AR: Obama Victory Turns Into Anti-Police Riot


Jonesboro police arrested eight Arkansas State University students after a melee at an impromptu Barack Obama victory celebration near the campus.

The celebration saw about 200 people gather at an apartment complex about a block away from campus at 10:45 p.m. Tuesday. An off-duty officer moonlighting as a security guard for the apartment complex asked those who had gathered to go home, then called for additional help.

Two on-duty officers arrived at the apartment complex.

The crowd responded by throwing rocks and beer bottles at police, with one man attacking a cop.

A distress call summoned more than 40 police officers from surrounding departments and the Arkansas State Police. One officer suffered a cut to the forehead trying to pull the man off of the officer and another fell to the ground during the scuffle.

Milwaukee, WI: ATM Attacked

We know that the more we talk, we make our enemies work easier, so we'll keep this short.

Last night on November 4th, we attacked an ATM machine on Auer and Holton in the Riverwest neighborhood of Milwaukee. It was targeted because it was an ATM. It has no specific ties to any major issues other than in its contribution to our continued domination.

As we continue to act, our actions convey their necessary revolutionary solidarity with the RNC8 and other arrested in the Twin Cities, as well as Denver during the DNC, and all facing state repression.

This action only took 15 seconds, was very easy, and reproducible.

Find some friends and break things at night.

Modesto, CA: Republican Headquarters Attacked

...

On Halloween night the Republican storefront in Modesto was attacked. Two railroad spikes were thrown through the window. As about eight workers waited outside their place of work a black clad figure walked by. It took one spike to weaken the window, and one more to drop it.

Nobody gave chase.

Its time we take the power we want. To show that Obama nor McCain will ever have our interest at heart.

We interject the new ballot.

The ballot that demands to be counted in monetary damage.

We are everywhere. We are sick of you.

Children go hungry while you rot in decadence.

Feel threatened, be afraid, because you make us feel that way everytime one of your cops rolls down our streets, everytime that bright spotlight hits our face.

The war is on.

We love all of you who are also resisting in Tacoma, Santa Cruz, Minneapolis, Indiana and everywhere else.

May the moon stay behind the clouds and streetlioghts stay dim.

Over the past year there have been several incidents of individuals using Sierra Pacific Power Company’s (now doing business as NV Energy) power lines and equipment for target practice and causing major damage.

More recently, vandals’ actions caused power outages for Fernley and surrounding residents, including the Fernley Industrial Park.

This type of vandalism is not just inconvenient for customers when outages occur, but can also be costly to repair and take company employees away from productive work to keep the supply of electricity flowing to customers.

Kansas City, MO: Democratic Headquarters Attacked Again

In the wee hours last Wednesday and Friday mornings, we smashed several windows at Barack Obama campaign headquarters in Kansas City. Our motivations were curtly expressed in the words written on Wednesday’s bricks—“false hope means social war.” Needless to say, we have little affinity with those currently supporting Obama. We fundamentally object to electoral politics, representative democracy, and global capital and aren’t interested to compromise, be ‘realistic’, etc. Obama is a ruse and dangerously counterrevolutionary: he has become the image of ‘change’ (albeit illusory!), a respectable face for imperial capital and state. His candidacy has exposed many more as pseudo-comrades, quick to blackmail themselves out of guilt-ridden liberal critiques of privilege into standing in solidarity with ultimately none other than the financial industry, whom Obama gladly will bail out. In turn, we aim to expose Obama, the Democratic party, and liberals (anarcho- or otherwise) as our enemies. While they earnestly perform their scripted role of good cop, we are struggling to evict all cops from our neighborhoods. While they coax and coerce us to play by the rules, we are fighting to live only by our desires. While they bandy words about a piecemeal, painfully slow models of ‘progress’ and ‘social change’, we are taking matters into our hands—we feel it in our bones, we cannot wait any longer. No more delusions or demagogues! Rebel, riot, revolt 2008!

Forever and always threatening the windows of oppressors,

Woodland, CA: Republican Headquarters Attacked


Overnight, an unidentified vandal threw what looked like a lead flower pot through the lower half of the glass window at the Yolo County Republican Headquarters Friday morning.

The owner of the building has called to get the window replaced, but Taylor was told that it won't be fixed until Wednesday, the day after the election.

T
his is the culmination of months worth of rude phone calls, sign stealing and vandalism against members of the Republican Party.

Olympia, WA: Halloween Dance Party Riot

On Halloween night, a roving dance party took off from the artesian well. The artesian well sits under a black wall covered with Olympia' art. The artesian well is the source of all life in Olympia. The well belongs to the vast tribe of Olympia.

The party lasted exactly 55 minutes. A mix was played over several boomboxes. Almost immediately, the US bank had its windows busted out. Some people left the party after this, but most stayed. In less than ten minutes, the size of the roving party swelled.

With Justice playing over the speakers, people busted out the windows of a Starbucks. Again, some people left, but most stayed. After making another circle of downtown and seeing more US bank windows busted out (!), the crowd continued to grow as it passed the bars.

When it was clear that the slow moving police were attempting to trap everyone, the crowd suddenly surged backwards, overrunning the cruisers. At this point some people were pepper sprayed. No one was arrested. Everyone stayed safe.

The crowd was composed of people dressed as Knights, Unicorns, Witches, Dragons, Hippies, Demons, Aliens, Owls, assorted superheroes, Wizards, Satanic Fauns, unaffiliated party goers, Wolves, Angels and Sheep. Even the Devil was there. So was Athena. Even old trusty Jesus was there.

Thank you for the blessing Athena!

Love,

Some Olympia Shitheads

(More to come, undoubtedly.)

Corporate news:

Several windows were broken at U.S. Bank and Starbucks after about 50 people, dressed in Halloween costumes, marched through downtown Olympia Friday night.

Some members broke away from the group after the march started about 10:30 p.m. and smashed windows at the two businesses, resulting in an estimated $8,000 in damages.

The march started in the 400 block of east Fourth Avenue, then turned southbound onto Capitol Way, he said. U.S. Bank is at 402 S. Capitol Way and Starbucks is at 550 Capitol Way South.

Broken windows have been boarded up at U.S. Bank and it appears large objects, such as rocks, were used to break windows at Starbucks.

No injuries or arrests were reported.
