A Response to Bristol Post and the Police’s Anarchist Witch Hunt

When members of the “Angry Foxes Cell” burnt down the almost complete Police Firearms Training Centre in Portishead near Bristol, it took a lot of people by surprise, ourselves included. This week the Bristol Post published an article on a report by Avon & Somerset Police with the Stalinesque title “Our Five Year Ambition”. The Posts front page ran the Headline “Targeting the Enemy Within.” This was followed up by a comment from the editor singling out anarchists and drumming up public support for their increased oppression.

In their report, Avon & Somerset Police stated they were preparing to “crackdown on rioters and extremists” and are “monitoring several potentially dangerous groups”. The Post claimed that the police have launched a series of operations to “gather intelligence about subversive organisations”. The article continues to conflate “domestic extremism” with rioting like the kind seen in Stokes Croft in 2011; acts of vandalism like the attack on the Evening Post building shortly afterwards and even the counter demonstration to the English Defense League march in July 2012. Interestingly the Post article also adds “non-peaceful” animal rights and environmental protesters to their vague definition of “extremists”.

Domestic Extremist hands out free cake at recent Anarchist Federation demo

This is clearly an attempt by the Avon & Somerset Police to threaten anarchists and other radicals in Bristol. The Bristol radical community will potentially face increased levels of repression at the hands of the police. This could be anything from increased surveillance to being picked up for bogus charges while on demos; through to our homes being raided and possessions being seized. Without any evidence to track down the people they want to apprehend, the cops are likely to take out their frustration on public facing activists. Even the release of this report itself is an obvious attempt to scare them.

We must not be driven into a state of paralysis for fear of the police. If they are expecting us to respond by being intimitated into inaction, by giving up on activism or by becoming fractured and turning on each other they are going to be sorely disappointed. Whilst this kind of repression does require a response, it will be a response routed in action, in solidarity and in unity. We need to be prepared, look out for each other and up our game when it comes to our own security. If the Police come knocking we will not answer their calls. We have nothing to tell and nothing to gain. Whilst we may not always agree with everyone’s tactics and philosophy amongst the wider radical scene the cops can Fuck off if they think we will turn on our comrades.

The police and the state, as always, try to fracture us, they will try to prey on our weaknesses. We stand in unity and solidarity with all those who fight against oppression, capitalism and the state. We must create a culture of mutual aid and solidarity and most importantly: Resistance. We will support each other through whatever the state throws at us because we know that no matter what we will come out stronger.

    If you know who these criminals are, and you refuse to turn them in then I hope you do get arrested, I hope they oppress you into the ground, hiding a criminal is a criminal act itself and you deserve our contempt.

    The people of Bristol say FUCK OFF to anyone who shows solidarity with those who would burn our city… I publically call on the people of Bristol to stand behind our Police force and assist them in finding these criminals.

      criminal by whose definition? the criminals who run the country? the thugs that do their dirty work who are now one firing range short? those who’ve given themselves over to myopic reverence to these criminals and end up blindly supporting a system that’s contrary to their own interests?

      What’s ‘Bristol’? a collection of buildings? a spot on a map? somewhere nice to shop? a local government? a police force? or a community of people who are worthy of being free from oppressive forces? (Tip: if you define it as any of the first 4, you’ve nothing to be ‘proud’ of)

      Thanks for letting us know, it defintely shouldn’t be in Italic, and may be slightly on thin side but I wouldn’t call it really thin.
      The default font is Open Sans link
      If its not installed your browser should use Helvetica Neue link
      If your computer doesn’t have either installed then it should display one (default?) font from the sans-serif famly of fonts link

      If the fonts above don’t match what you see on our site if you could let us know a few things it might help us work out why its happening:
      Is the font the same on our other articles/pages? Have you noticed it on other sites? What browser (chrome/firefox/internet explorer/safari etc) do you use? and what operating system (OS X mavericks / windows 7 etc) are you using

    Oh great- so you stand in solidarity with any fighting against oppression, capitalism and the state- fair enough- but surely when lives are put at risk, through arson- not only those who just may happen to be innocently in the vicinity of it, or those such as fire fighters who turn up to sort it out- are you really standing up and supporting such acts? Say if some kids happened to playing and were caught up in the fire, or if the burning building collapsed on a fire fighter and killed them …would you still sit and support such actions from your high and mighty position? ( ahhh you would say.. its all in a good cause, fight the good fight, unfortunately casualties occur, can’t be helped….etc etc…)…..( and I hope you aren’t claiming benfits from the state to fund your fight against the state, cos that would just be hypocritical wouldn’t it?)

    Claiming benefits? A tyrannical, murderous entity dispossesses us and forces us into wage slavery under threat of starvation and makes off with the fruit of our labours so as to use it to produce profits and death on an unimaginable scale benefits from the ahistorical ignorance of those like you who believe that the amounts spent on ‘benefits’ somehow compare with e.g. the trillions stored off-shore for the benefit of our masters. What naughty children we are to dare to stand outside our assigned ‘worker’ identities when we should be concentrating on getting as much value as possible back to those who own us. Wake the fuck up.

    Rich,
    The ‘I work and don’t want my tax paying for your benefits’ argument is rubbish. I also work and would much rather my taxes paid for peoples benefits rather than royalty, MP’s wages, endless wars in foreign countries that are nothing to do with defending the nation and the billions spent on them. The things you and I hold dear, like free medical care and education, are the very things that are being effected by cuts while our beloved politicians and royals keep pocketing the cash. If you ‘can’t quite square with the idea of murderous entities making off with the fruits of my labour somehow’, then I would suggest that you are involved in some sort of Jimmy Carresque tax avoidance scheme! As far as getting clean water in your taps don’t even get me started, if you think you are getting a good deal from the utilities companies then how come they keep making record profits in the billions (they may not be murderous but they are definitely making off with the fruits of every ones labour).

    Try not to let fear paralyse your mind quite so much, at least not fear of anarchists. By far the biggest terrorist acts have always been committed by states and their paid murderers. Perhaps you think that this will change if enough people walk up and down in the street, which is only fair and just, since of course only the state should have the right to use violence, on our behalf, to keep us safe and free, right? We should only ever employ non-violent methods because, well, that’s just the right thing to do and that’s why so much of our tax money goes to the death industry, yes..yes I see, mmm. “The impact of the bomb was similar in both cities. Within an area of about half a mile from the explosion 90 percent of the people were killed instantly – the majority who died were killed in this way – the only trace of some people was the shadows they left behind on the walls and pavements. About a mile from the explosion skin was carbonised and viscerae were evaporated. Thousands of small black bundles were stuck to pavements and bridges – the remains of cremated humans. Even two and a half miles from the explosion skin temperatures reached 120 degrees Fahrenheit, resulting in instant blistering. The blast wave travelled at two miles a second then ripped off this blistered skin. This wave also blew broken glass and bits of buildings into people. Others who jumped into civil defence water tanks were boiled alive. Thousands of people were left walking round with skin hanging off their bodies like kimonos, their bowels and brains coming out, eyes sticking two inches out of their sockets or eyeballs held in charred hands, attempting to walk on their ankles because their feet had been blown off, or writhing around in the middle of the road in their death agonies, having had their eyes, ears and noses burned away so that it was impossible to tell front from back, or plunging shrieking into the river.” Anarchists were not suspected. “I am self employed- can’t quite square with the idea of murderous entities making off with the fruits of my labour somehow.” Assuming that you do pay tax, how much of it goes toward helping your favourite state protect us in this sort of way? (You said you were a teacher…Citizenship?)

    “Say if some kids happened to playing and were caught up in the fire, or if the burning building collapsed on a fire fighter and killed them …would you still sit and support such actions from your high and mighty position? ( ahhh you would say.. its all in a good cause, fight the good fight, unfortunately casualties occur, can’t be helped….etc etc…)…..( and I hope you aren’t claiming benfits from the state to fund your fight against the state, cos that would just be hypocritical wouldn’t it?)”

    See previous paragraph.

    “Hey very nice comment…the fact is , I quite like living in this country, I like the fact that i can send my children to school, that I have access to healthcare, that my dad who is seriously ill can receive support and care, I like the fact that I can visit libraries and get books, I like the fact that i can turn on a tap and get clean drinking water.”

    Yes it’s much better than living somewhere (Iraq etc.) that your state’s murderers have helped turn into a moonscape isn’t it? (..International Relations?) Do you think there’s a connection between our wealth and their poverty? Why does that ‘make ya proud’?

    “I accept that in order to provide these kind of things, money will be required. I am quite happy to work and pay tax and accept that this is how are system works. There are many parts of the system I don’t like, and would like to see change-but I am happy to work hard”

    Has it ever occurred to you that it is at least possible for there to be societies which don’t use money and would not know what you were talking about when you mentioned it or ‘work’? (..Anthropology?) When you sell whatever it is you sell, do you make a profit? You know, at some point in the process, is someone charged more money for something than the seller (you for example?) paid for it? That’s just how this system works. It’s about ripping people off. It’s a lie. Why should other people’s taxes go toward providing you with all of the things you say you value just so that you can rip them off? But you’re right though, it IS a system, a profit making machine. It’s not a society. It puts profit above people, clean air, clean water, ocean life that makes the oxygen in the atmosphere, above the holocene, the future…(..Science?) And btw, work kills people slowly without their noticing it, so I’d go a bit easier on myself if I were you. Turn down the greed a wee bit. But then it’s impossible to make people believe something if their bank balance depends on them not believing it. Coincidence? Why I think not!

    “I have never claimed benefits but have worked from leaving school- what i am saying is if you are against the system, fair enough, but don’t then claim benefits which are paid from taxes paid by people like me… cos that kind of pisses me off really- I really like the fact that people who are able to work for lots of reasons, or have physical or mental issues can receive help and support, but not those who choose not to work- i think you shoud wake the fuck up yourself to borrow your charming phrase”

    Has it ever occurred to you that there are many different ways to understand ‘human nature’? (..Philosophy?) You are assuming that I claim benefits because otherwise I would agree with you. Perhaps because you’ve had a Harley Street empathy by-pass (we go to a really excellent chap called Rodney, the waiting list on the NHS is prohibitive). How else could I defend the bizarre notion that a society should provide from each according to her ability to each according to her needs, including the need to step out of wage-slavery.

      Okeydoke,
      You make some valid points,
      I am totally opposed to acts of violence either by individuals or states, and have never said otherwise- i find what is going on in Syria appalling. What I was saying originally, was that I didn’t like the fact that the Anarchist Federation were standing alongside and giving support to those who arsoned a police building, with little thought for the endangering of life that that could cause. A reply from the Anarchist Federation stated that because the attack was at 2am in the morning it was ok because kids probably weren’t in the building- and fire fighters probably wouldn’t have gone in because there probably wasn’t anyone in there…from this I gathered that the Anarchist Federation supports such acts of violence if there is a probability that people won’t be killed/injured. Nice. With regard to benefts, I am happy that people who need support can get it… I don’t agree with the way it is organised and I think there are scandalous areas of policy- the “bedroom tax” and the NHS continuing care policy for two examples. However I do find it difficult to square the idea that someone who doesn’t want to work for idealogical reasons claims benefits from the system they are opposed to. On another point , I don’t feel proud that we have better health resources, water supply , food supply etc than many, far from it , I am grateful , but would like to see a fairer alternative for others. I do make contributions each month to various organisations that are involved in area of need,.. including providing funds for a slum school in India for a number of years. Please don’t put false words into my mouth.

    “Nowhere above does it say we support arson. Children tend not to play on constructions sites in quarries at 2am. Firefighters do not enter burning buildings unless they reasonably believe people are inside, again not a construction site at 2am.”

    This is interesting… the burning down of the Police facilities was clearly arson- “the act of intentionally or recklessly setting fire to another’s property”. So you don’t support this act then… why then did you add the bit above about “Children tending not to play on construction sites at 2 am, and firefighters not entering buildings unless they reasonably believe people are inside, again not a construction site at 2 am.” This seems to be your way of justifying your support for this act ,as you thought children’s or firefighters lives were not at risk. Either you support this act or you don’t . Make your mind up.

      We were asked about risk to children and fire fighters so we responded. Support for arson in general can not be infered from that.

      Our members have a range of views on using arson as a means of political protest so we could not state a position one way or the other on this subject. Our members also have a range of views on this specific instance. As a result we can not answer your question about support for this or any instance of arson.

      The statement above expresses solidarity for all people experiencing oppression at the hands of the state and specifically as a result of this instance of politcally motivated arson. We also encouraged activists to stay safe and strong in the face of the threat of increased state surveilance and harassment.

      I’m sorry that you misunderstood what the statement was saying. Please let us know if there is anything else you are unclear on about what we said.

    Since there was no actual harm to any person, does the violence done to the bricks and mortar of this building equate to the violence those using it would have committed against people of all kinds, in your system of ethics? If you truly are ideologically opposed to violence then why do you object to the destruction of a monstrous facility whose sole purpose was to augment the violence of a tyrannical entity against the population of a country you say you are happy to be living in? Is it possible that you are straightforwardly conflating a state with the territory and people it dominates? Is your nonviolent ethic a version of Gandhi’s Satyagraha? Do you agree with Gandhi’s wise counsel to the Jews in Nazi Germany to neither flee nor resist but rather offer themselves up to be killed by their tormentors, since their “suffering voluntarily undergone will bring them an inner strength and joy” as well as shame the Nazis into discontinuing their genocidal program? Would you have been opposed to the revolt of the Sonderkommando at Auchwitz, the ‘special unit’ of Jewish inmates responsible for the disposal of bodies? Using gunpowder, the leaders of the Sonderkommando had planned to destroy the gas chambers and crematoria, and launch an uprising. When the camp resistance warned them that they were due to be murdered on the morning of 7 October 1944, they attacked the SS and Kapos with two machine guns, axes, knives and grenades. Over 70 SS men were killed, including two who were pushed alive into a crematorium oven after being stabbed by a member of the Sonderkommando. Would you have condemned these people for not using Gandhi’s special shield? If a person attacks a mouse’s nest the mouse responds by attacking back, despite the obvious weight disadvantage. Why do you think no other complex lifeform employs a Gandhi shield? Would you consider yourself more ethical than a mouse if you were to use a Gandhi shield when members of your family were attacked?

    “However I do find it difficult to square the idea that someone who doesn’t want to work for idealogical reasons claims benefits from the system they are opposed to.

    If you can’t see the contradiction in what you’ve written here then you aren’t even reading it yourself so why inflict it on others? Precisely which false words are you referring to? Within the system that you seem so pleased to be a part of, our wealth IS their poverty, so what you have said makes no sense. Do you see any contradiction between the bourgeois individualism of Western capitalist folklore, the me-first everyone-for-themselves model of human beings, and the capitalist state’s claim that it takes care of everyone’s best interests? Which do you think people in India would prefer, more of your ill-gotten capitalist charity money earned by ripping people off within the system of theft/profit maximising, or an end to this system which is killing them? Would it be logical or consistent with your viewpoint for those claiming ‘ideological’ benefits to give the money back to the state so that it could accelerate slightly the genocidal policies you simultaneously say you are opposed to and are explicitly in favour of given the benefits you say you receive from it?

    “With regard to benefts, I am happy that people who need support can get it… I don’t agree with the way it is organised and I think there are scandalous areas of policy- the “bedroom tax” and the NHS continuing care policy for two examples.”

    How do you propose the population of this country influence ‘policy’ given the wide choices now on offer within our wonderfully broad and multifarious political establishment? Which puppet of capitalism do you think is the right person for such a task? “Rich, you voted for the puppet on the left or right – show him what he’s won Tony!” Would you agree that it’s at least possible that ‘policy’ itself is the real problem?

    As the old Inuit saying goes, gifts make slaves as whips make dogs…

    You said: “with regard to me giving money to support causes I believe in, you are saying that this somehow is “bourgeois individualism of Western capitalist folklore,””.

    What I said was: ‘Do you see any contradiction between the bourgeois individualism of Western capitalist folklore, the me-first everyone-for-themselves model of human beings, and the capitalist state’s claim that it takes care of everyone’s best interests?’ This called for your answer to the following question: How is it possible on the basis of the Hobbesian model of human nature – the usual unbridled egoism and self-interest which is supposed to characterise humans and which would inevitably produce a war of all-against-all that would destroy the fabric of society, and which therefore proves that without government the strong would devour the weak – how is it possible to use this model of human beings to justify the existence of governments everywhere, if on the basis of this same model the administrators of every government are activated by the selfsame all-consuming egoism and self-interest? There was no mention of charities. It is only through the crude alchemy of your lazy sophistry that you have managed to avoid responding to this issue and instead connected it with the loosely related idea of the ‘lotta good work you do for charideee’.

    “and that money I I have earned is ” ill-gotten capitalist charity money earned by ripping people off within the system of theft/profit ” although you have obviously read a lot of books and seem pretty good at putting across an argument, I don’t agree that me using some of the money that i earn ( not by ripping anyone off , by the way) to support others is an example of “bourgeois individualism of Western capitalist folklore,”

    In a system solely concerned with profit maximising, all gains are ill-gotten, it’s unavoidable, which is part of the reason it’s intolerable. I personally don’t have any spare money as it all goes toward paying for permission to continue to exist so that I can participate in the wage slavery thing I mentioned previously. I wish I could be more like you but I’ve heard rumours recently that within our lovely state-capitalist nexus if I were starving and I ate some bread in a shop without paying for it certain uniformed persons would show up and assault me and then lock me away in a poorly furnished room. Have you heard about this? I’ve even heard that if I stop paying someone I’ve never met for permission to live in a place they’ve leased from something called ‘The Crown’ then more likely than not the same thing will happen. They do say that if I were to resist being assaulted I could be badly beaten up, especially when those mysterious uniformed people I mentioned earlier got me on my own in a well-lit but sparsely decorated room somewhere. What do you think about this? I can’t completely bring myself to believe that these things actually go on in our nation state no matter how plausible those people who told me about them on the street corner made them sound.

    But that wasn’t what those guys were mostly talking about. They were mainly saying that it is necessary to finally achieve a form of organisation that doesn’t, like some bad machine, consume the greater part of its energy in internal friction and release only a small remainder for the development of happiness, mind, personality and the real work of humanity, such as creating a model of our natures which doesn’t threaten our existence, cause war, environmental catastrophe, social injustice and the creation of classes. I didn’t really understand what they were on about but I remember they also said that one of the biggest things standing in the way of our children having a future is the evil destiny that attaches itself to the organisation of humankind into states, not just as..how did they put it?..not just as bureaucratic organisms but as spiritual-moral entities. I told them that I just wanted a quiet life but they insisted on adding that the idolatry of the state had penetrated so deeply into people’s psyches that many perceived this entity as some kind of spiritual superperson or an institution for the perfection of human nature. They were at pains to point out that this is false because if states were regarded as persons, then they would be persons unable to act upon even the most naïve of moral demands: such as that one should not break contracts, not lie, not steal, not kill. They said that, for states, the place of such naïve and basic moral demands is taken by the single principle of pursuing one’s own advantage, which is realised through force, cunning, and the business person’s tactics in applying pressure without scruple. They pointed out how curious it was that, thanks to relationships that would merit many years of sociological analysis, the state nevertheless appears to many of the people it enslaves in its ‘home’ territory as the highest embodiment of their honour and moral maturity, whilst simultaneously being naturally recognised by people being dominated by other states as self-evidently criminal. I refused to listen to any more at this point and went to off Starbucks to calm my nerves.

    But Starbucks has free wifi (?) and apparently – get this – large corporations also donate an infinitesimal fraction of their profits to all sorts of charitable causes for PR reasons..I mean, that shows how much they care doesn’t it? Yes, Monsanto and Cargill donating profits from terminator seeds to charities in aid of peasant farmers. You couldn’t MAKE it up! As you probably already know from your intensive study of the anthropological record, gifts which cannot be reciprocated have been used by individuals and groups to dominate others throughout the history of the genus Homo. Charities are most certainly part of the white man’s burden.

    You know something richy rich, you’re wasted in the private sector. You should be sharing your wisdom at one of our great universities, LSE or something. Reminiscent of most left-leaning academics, your position seems to boil down to the fact that you don’t want any kind of social change that might scratch your DVDs and since (for whatever reason) you aren’t engaging with any of the points I’m making or answering any of my questions I think I’ll just let this alone now if it’s all the same to you, the power imbalance is becoming too vulgar for my tastes.

    So big phoney business smile…….handshake…….and looking directly into eyes to simulate sincerity: I hope your life is forever empty of alarms and surprises. Bye bye!
