Mobile Slaughter Unit Sabotaged in Castle Rock, WA

Earlier this month, a quart of bleach was poured into the fuel tank of a
mobile slaughter unit operated by Bolar Custom Meat Cutting (381
Delameter Rd, Castle Rock, WA). This was done with the goal of causing
damage to the unit's fuel system and providing temporary respite from
the bloodshed.

Wells Fargo Attacked in Solidarity with NW Detention Center Hunger Strikers

Early in the morning of April 28th we ran up to the Wells Fargo bank in the
Madison Park neighborhood of Seattle. In just a couple of breif joyous
moments we chucked a couple of rocks through their windows and left. It was
easy, fun and exhilarating.

We were inspired by the defiance of the detainees in Tacoma's ICE Prison on
hunger strike, who are demanding better pay, better food, better treatment,
lower commissary, and fairness. We were excited to hear that 70 more strikers
have joined the hunger strike as of Monday.

Wells Fargo was chosen as a target because it is one of the main funders for
the GEO Group which owns and operates the Tacoma ICE facility.
As long as borders and capitalism exist, human beings will be caged,
dehumanized, and treated as nothing more than a means by which to make a
profit. Deportation is an example of the inherent violence of capitalism and
the state. Borders are arbitrary lines drawn for the purposes of maintaining
white supremacy and imperialism.

5E3 : Seattle solidarity demo at Mexican consulate for the arrested comrades accused of molotov attack

This afternoon, February 11th, there was a demonstration at the Mexican consulate in Seattle, in solidarity with Carlos Lopez and other prisoners of the Mexican state. A group of about 20 people chanted Carlos’ name as well as anti-border and anti-prison slogans, and a synopsis of the case and a statement by Carlos were read over a megaphone. There were two banners that said “Solidarity to all captured comrades” and “Solidaridad es mas fuerte que los carceles! Presxs a la calle!” We stood around and handed out leaflets to passers-by for about 15 minutes, then went inside the consulate and read Carlos’ statement again, and left and dispersed on our own accord.

Carlos is one of three people arrested on January 5th in Mexico City in relation to a firebomb attack on a Nissan Dealership and the Ministry of Communication and Transportation. Collectively known as the 5E3, they are being held on a special 40-day extension and are being investigated for sabotage, organized crime, and terrorism.

Capitalism, domination, and control are global, therefore anarchist solidarity is international as well. All prisons and borders must be destroyed, whether Mexican, Canadian, US, or any other. We feel particularly inspired by the 5E3′s resilience in the face of state repression because we have also faced intense state repression in the last year and a half in the Pacific Northwest. Much like civil contempt in the United States is used in an attempt to break us, the 40-day arraigo is a similar attempt by the Mexican state to force compliance on the part of those physically locked up as well as those who might be inspired by attacks on the state and capitalism.

Compxs, we wish you continued strength in the battles to come. With solidarity, non-cooperation with the state, and care for each other, you will get through this.
