cita del texto:
“La destrucción de la policía no requerirá sólo de asesinato en masa, necesitará de una gran deconstrucción, una venganza colaborativa dirigida a aquellxs que han perpetuado la pesadilla del control policial. Significará aparecer en las puertas de holgazanes abuelitos con uniformes de desfile decorando sus paredes y vaciar una 9MM en sus caras.”
“Hacia la aniquilación de la policía y la destitución de la humanidad.”
“Por supuesto, habríamos preferido que estas palabras estuvieran acompañadas de la vital fuerza de una acción, de un ataque, la intensidad de un fuego en la oscuridad, el sonido de una explosión, el girar de una bala en el cañón”

We announce the begging of a new journal; ‘It’s the End of the World as we Know It’- It concerns the Covid-19 virus sweeping through the interior of civilization but not in the way you might expect… We analyze the consequences of increased militarization, state control, and intervention on our lives. We see this war, as not one against a virus but against the state and all its murderous tendencies. Episode one focus’ mostly on the first signs of the impeding fascism we are all begging to experience on a daily basis- we hope to make more issues- focusing on different aspects of this ongoing conflict…. We have stolen reflections and thoughts from many places, as well as adding our own to the growing body of anti authoritarian literature concerning this pandemic.
We are searching for new stories of the increasing repression, violence, and state control emerging under the guise of “saving” us from this virus; as well as all the stories of rebels breaking the confinement, of prison breaks, attacks on authorities, those denying to be imprisoned at home, and all acts of sabotage against the machinery of death. The next Issue (if it exists) will likely be a documentation of Police and military violence, checkpoints, lock downs, and murders as well as the stories of victories against this new reality from our side. if you have stories to contribute please contact us at:

Quote From the Text:
“We can NEVER trust the state to keep us safe, we can
never trust the state to care about whether we live or die.
All we can trust the state for is the desire to maintain the
broken systems of domination and the religion of the economy.”
“We will build our own measures to protect ourselves, be
they direct conflict: robberies or looting (since most of us
have no access to making money right now and will likely
die of this before we die of any virus), attacks on the
police or surveillance infrastructure, offering food, health
care, and sanitation projects to those most in need, or
providing shelter (such as squats) to those homeless
amongst us who do not have the luxury of quarantining
themselves at home.”

Every new year, we are faced once again with the sense that the impending doom all around us draws closer and closer, every single day might already be a nightmare, but what we all know deep, deep down; is that it can probably only get worse from here; the forests are burning, the waters rising, the air slowly choking us, the graveyard of debris circling the earths atmosphere (satellites and other useless space junk) grows exponentially, and the avenues of possible freedom are squeezed tighter and tighter, we could hope for the apocalypse, but lets face it we’re already there and it’s not that fucking great.
However, every now again there’s some good news; our personal highlight of 2019 is the knowledge that one french cop committed suicide every four days last year (we hope our poster helped in at least some of the cases)- with this in mind we decided to drop some new posters, to give us all a boost for the new years. With thanks to Ronald himself for the inspiration:
The latest text in our bootleg series, ‘The Bullet or The Bullet- Killer Cops Make Cop Killers’ Is taken from the “Thought Box” section from the Guerilla Funk Recordings website and is claimed by Paris. The text offers a sweeping critique of racist policing tactics in the U.S.A. and proposes a radical and armed response to the seemingly endless tole of murders against Black and Racialised people by the police. The text also proposes a critical engagement against liberal and pacifist trajectories which uphold the belief that non violence is a viable tactic in the face of an institutionally violent, racist, and heavily armed adversary. The second half of the text, offers some basic suggestions on how to engage with the police in situations of detention, arrest and search; although many of these suggestions may not be relevant outside of the specific context in which they were written, we have made the editorial decision to include them, both for the sake of not editing the original text and further because some sections may be useful in many contexts.
Quotes From the Text:
“We’ve voted. We’ve marched. We’ve trusted in the System. Joke’s on us. It’s all fun and games ’til somebody gets hurt…”
“I reject that. And many others do too. So what’s the proposed solution?
Armed resistance against unwarranted aggression.
It’s the elephant in the room and needs to be seriously considered by those of us who value our lives and the lives of our loved ones. Malcolm X said that selfdefense is common sense, and that’s a credo we should all stand by. Can’t take cops to court? How about court in the streets?
We’re dying anyway. And I’ve said it a thousand times
the only language America speaks and understands is
violence especially as it relates to people of color and
those on the lower rungs of the socioeconomic ladder.
Maybe we should talk.”

First Online release of ‘Towards and Insurrectionary Antifasism’- Originally produced by ‘problematic distro’ in physical form, we are happy to share this text from a sibling distro in its first digital version. The text, is a meandering critique of the current state of anti fascism (with particular reference to the scene in the UK), the historical failings of traditional antifascist analysis and the centricity of purely anti fascist critiques which fail to recognize the inherent facism contained within all states, police forces and institutions of domination, as well as attempting to attack both technology and the fascist outpourings of some anti tech positions such as those held by ITS and their apologists.
Quotes from the text:
“After what now seem like the riotous years following 2008, a low tide seems to have swept over the world, and a familiar pattern is reappearing. Some continue the campaign of attack which those insurrectionary days delivered, while many more become scene politicians, socialists, charity workers and many more still are caught between these alternatives, without the capacity for the former, and without the hopelessness required for the latter varieties of resignation. But ultimately this is due to the fact that the world which seemed to be threatening to burst open ten years ago, even if terribly briefly and partially, is now largely carrying on as normal. This new era of social peace finds itself aided cowardly or abetted ineffectually by the participation of anarchists.”
“I see you behind a mask, eyes shining as always but heading straight for men with tattooed arms flying national flags, in a big metal play-pen, you’re marching alongside the SWP, the RCG etc. The cops we could be running ragged on wild actions now close in on you and your chants grow fainter as theirs grow louder. And you stand there, a look of pained anger, disgust, impotence, as more bodies than you’ve ever seen at one of their marches swirl around huge screens blurting out racist poison. You wish you could storm the stage, cut the mic, tear the whole thing down. But you can’t and you don’t, you stand and watch as it starts to rain. Meanwhile immigration enforcement vans park on main roads again in Peck-ham and Whitechapel; buildings that would have made palatial squats become the rented pads of guardians; fibre-optic cables relay the latest fluctuations in price of the dollar and sterling; the areas around London get turned into construction sites for the latest mega-prison or high speed railway; A.I. and behavioural neuroscience dish out algorithmic and chemical analysis for the surveillance and commodification of our innermost feelings and needs; ATMs spit out money for city workers to spend in cocktail bars; replaced on time by G4S in the morning; boys from the elite universities burn £50 notes in front of homeless people; the police who murdered Rashan Charles and Edson Da Costa just a few months ago roll around London without obstruction; general hopelessness and desperation; often debt or loneliness induced; brings countless people to the deliverance of drugs, suicide and religious fanaticism. Everywhere a gnawing emptiness. There is no darkness; the floodlights and billboards blot out the stars at night.”

A new Collection Release from D&O. The Collected Writings of the Prostitutes War Group is a series of text collected from a loose Ilegalist network of Prostitutes who wrote a series of texts and participated in a number of extortion’s, robberies, and clandestine activities which were published in the year of 2017. The text includes the so called ‘Pro-festo’ of the group, one communique and two field action reports. The texts are presented in chronological order (rather than grouped by theme) and all the texts in this zine were taken directly from the PWG website https://prostituteswargroup.wordpress.com. The front cover pic is taken from a music clip entitled ‘Rolex’ about a gang of women in UK who were drugging men at clubs and stealing expensive items such as Rolex watches, given the content of some of the action reports we found it appropriate.
Quote From The Text:
“We are the whores of the worst nightmare of the shitstem. PWG is an internationalist collective of anarchist revolutionary queer insurrectionist PROSTITUTES: rising up to realise our power, using our pro-fessional ILLEGALIST skills to sabotage our ideological enemies. We will disarm and ultimately destroy those who perpetuate the Social War against us – WAR that is inherent in the fascistic capitalistic Shitstems imposed on us. They try to render us powerless conformists, through their sick perversions of ‘Judeo- Xtian Morality’, ‘Law & Order’, and ‘Justice’ –that only serve to emotionally, spiritually and physically RAPE us.”

(Pix from a distro in Berlin who also made patches with a similar design to our recent poster)
Some kids from our favorite graffiti crew just turned one of their zines into a fully bound book!!! 🙂
Copies are available in some Anarchist Libraries, from Distros and other random as fuck places!! Currently there are copies in Berlin, Malmo, London, Ghent, Zurich, Vienna and other cities. Keep an eye out! we’ll be distroing this one IRL in the next weeks. Sorry no post outs 😛
We’re hyped to share (and to add to our distro) a new text sent to us from ‘Narcissa, KCBG et al’ (https://fckcps.blackblogs.org/) entitled ‘I Want to Kill Cops Until I’m Dead’. The text offers “an insurrectionist critique of policing, humanism, gender, and civilization” attempting to identify the many and intertwined ways in which policing and its logic enters our lives in both the material and psychic realms and develop strategies for their desolation.
Quotes From the Text:
“We understand that for many people (even among self proclaimed anarchist milieus) the word police refers generally to the state apparatchik standing between us and the proliferation of our destructive desire; the ‘thin blue line’ which prevents the breakdown of society, the stick in the carrot and stick motif. Through this discourse we conjure up the image of the cop as a blue uniformed target, carrying a gun, handcuffs, and radio, driving a squad car, and kidnapping our friends. Whist none of these analyses are necessarily incorrect we feel that they miss the bigger picture, ‘policing’ permeates the logic of every social relation, and frames our movement through this world. ‘Police’ is not a job title but rather a description of a series of social relations and actions, police is an act, a living breathing methodology, and a medium of communication. Police is something people do, are doing, have done, not something they are.”
“Destroying police will no just take mass murder, it will take a great undoing, a collaborative revenge aimed at those who have perpetuated the nightmare of police officering. It will mean showing up at the doors of dawdling grandpas with parade uniforms pinned up on their walls and letting off a 9mm in their face.”
“Towards the annihilation of police and the destitution of humanity.”
