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.”

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.”

Pic of two individuals handcuffed together with text :-p
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.”
