Freedom Exclusive: 1,312 Undercover Anarchists Discovered in Metropolitan Police

An estimated 1,312 undercover anarchists were discovered within the Met’s ranks so far, with some still active. AFed, SolFed, Freedom Collective and The Wombles refused to disclose the names of infiltrators, instead providing the Inquiry with their numbers: ranging from ACAB0001 to ACAB1312.

They have also refused to say how many are still active, or what is the purpose of the undercover operation.

One member of Freedom Collective, who prefers to remain anonymous, said: ”We will be issuing a statement at some point, but first we need to have a number of very long meetings and argue on Libcom.

I guess we better start doing more illegal raves in order to gather funds we will likely need if the Met choses to take legal action against us. Also, for the record, there is no leader of this operation: it was purely self-organized”. Continue reading “Freedom Exclusive: 1,312 Undercover Anarchists Discovered in Metropolitan Police”

Guns To Phase Out Americans By 2050

   February 16, 2018 – SATIRE, BREAKING NEWS, WORLD NEWS

A DISTURBING REPORT issued by the International Centre For Research (ICFR) has estimated that guns are on course to phase out Americans by 2050, WWN has learned.

With the number of people suffering horrific and violent gun deaths in America exceeding 33,000 per year, it is believed when this harrowing statistic is combined with an unwavering commitment from politicians to do nothing, the result will be the total eradication of all 320 million Americans by 2050.

 “If current trends continue, the last two standing will go down in a blaze of depressing glory sometime late 2050,” explained head of the report Duncan Morrow.

The ICFR report makes for truly upsetting reading, and begs for immediate action to be taken in relation to a number of competing problems which can all be identified as contributing to America’s gun deaths problem. However, leading Republican politicians who have received the report could only confirm how quickly it burned when placed on an open fire.

“I’m here to reassure you, you may be scared after what happened recently, but America will always be a place that is safe for you,” President Donald Trump said in a press conference in which he talked directly to an assortment of worried firearms, in a bid to reassure all guns that no harm would come them in these troubling times.

Those desperately crying out for action in the wake of tragic death after tragic death after tragic death after tragic death have been incorrectly told it is normal that someone can legally buy an AR-15 rifle before they can purchase beer, and not to worry as other non-gun things kill more Americans every year and something should be done about that instead.

Others suffering insurmountable grief and pain after learning of yet more carnage facilitated by politicians paid by the NRA not to change laws have been told to reconvene in the usual places in public and online to voice their anger next time something like this happens again.

Below & Beyond Trump: Power and Counter-Power in 2017

This is a “strategy and analysis document” published by the Black Rose Anarchist Federation. It provides an analysis of the political context for social anarchists in 2017 and the prospects for “pro-organizational revolutionary anarchists” to intervene in the current period. The documents focuses on (briefly) understanding ruling class power, social movements, and offers suggestions for a path forward. In response to their understanding of the contemporary period, they call for building social movements from below, offensive campaigns, and developing explicitly socialist practices and programs. It reads a lot like a political party platform with a lot of vague statements, sloganeering, and solutions.

Ryanair will Offer Sincere Apology.. for only €5 Per Passenger

       BREAKING NEWS, LOCAL NEWS
7.3K SHARES   View Comments.   from  waterford whispers

BELEAGUERED budget airline RyanAir have made thousands of apologies available to customers following the company’s mishandling of flight cancellations, for the low, low price of just €4.99 each.

The airline was forced to cancel up to fifty flights a day between now and October, following a holiday allowance backlog that left them with a critical shortage of pilots, cabin staff, and trumpet players.

Grovelling apologies to the 400,000 affected passengers who had their holiday plans cancelled with short notice have now been added to the Ryanair website, and boss Michael O’Leary has kindly allowed people to pay with cash, cheque or credit card.

“There is a processing fee for apologies purchased using credit card or cheque,” said a spokesperson for Ryanair, ignoring a chorus of ringing phones at their customer service department.

“And of course, if you want your apology sent out to you, then there’s a slight fee for that too. But apart from that, every customer that was left in uncertainty about whether or not their holiday was going ahead will be fully satisfied with their apology. Just take a number in our queuing system and have your payment method ready, and we should get to you within the day, if not the week”.

Ryanair went on to announce that all affected passengers would be entitled to compensation, which would be available in the form of scratch cards.

US Warns That North Korea May Be In Possession Of A Godzilla

THE United States have issued a stark warning to North Korea about the level of retaliation they will face if they attempt to attack US citizens or bases with any form of gargantuan mutated monster, following intel from Pyongyang that the DPRK has come into possession of a Godzilla.
“We have received a dossier that North Korea may be about to unleash a Godzilla, or possibly a Rodan on US naval warships in the Pacific Ocean,” stated President Donald Trump, clearing his schedule from any investigations into irregularities with his administration so that he could properly address the developing Kaiju crisis.“The American people will not stand idly by and allow a dictator such as Kim Jon-un to threaten our way of life with a massive, city-stomping, fire breathing lizard creature, okay? Everybody, we need to concentrate all our attention on this. The entire west coast is at risk… have you seen the size of these things? Huge. Trust me”.The statement was met with scepticism from many opponents of the trump administration, who stated that Godzilla was a creature who was more connected to Japan, not North Korea, and that the North Korean administration had neither the capacity nor the resources to create a Kaiju of their own, even a shit one like Baragon or Megaguirus.Image result for godzilla attack US

Nevertheless, Trump pledged to divert huge amounts of funding into the US Space X and Mechagodzilla program, promising to meet any North Korean Kaiju attack with ‘massive firepower’ the likes of which the world hasn’t seen since Destroy All Monsters.

WWN Guide To Surviving A Nuclear Apocalypse

April 28, 2017 –WWN WORLD NEWS   255 SHARES  Comments
WITH death by nuclear fire back at the top of everyone’s ‘shit I’m afraid of right now’ lists, many people have started thinking about preparing for survival in a scorched, post-apocalyptic wasteland.
If you’re unsure as to what you should ‘pack’ for your journey into the unknown, then allow WWN to walk you through 5 things every Irish person should have in their bunker…
1) Drink
Life in a nuclear fallout shelter is zero craic, unless you get yourself well oiled. Remember; space is limited, so don’t stow cans. Spirits are a far more concentrated, effective way to get yourself shit-faced and ignore the scrabblings of the damned as they try to claw their way in.
2) Iodine pills
The government sent them to you, you threw them in the drawer with the old birthday cards and the Nokia chargers.. now’s the time to put them iodine-ey bad boys to use! Put them in your bunker so you can neck them swiftly when the time comes. Continue reading “WWN Guide To Surviving A Nuclear Apocalypse”

BREAKING FAKE NEWS: Mexico Agrees To Build Wall Due To Influx Of Illegal US Refugees

Tens of thousands of illegal US refugees are fleeing across the Mexican borders.

MEXICAN President Enrique Peña Nieto has confirmed today that a proposed plan to build a wall between the United States will now go ahead, in a bid to stem the flow of ‘American refugees’ currently attempting to migrate from the Trump-led nation.

Pena Nieto, who previously dismissed President Trump’s proposal to build a 35 to 40 foot concrete wall at the cost of $8bn to the Mexican taxpayer, made the dramatic U-turn yesterday afternoon, following reports of a large scale immigration of people wishing to leave the ‘land of the free’.

So far over 500,000 people are already queueing at various border controls along the current Mexican/US border, forcing the Mexican president to temporarily restrict access to non-Mexicans wishing to escape Donald Trump’s America.

“We’ve been queuing here since Friday,” one father of four told WWN, “we’ve been made stay in a refugee camp along with other Americans. All I want to do is find a better quality of life for my family. Now we’re stuck here in limbo”.

President Enrique Peña Nieto said he will continue the ban on all immigrants until the wall is built, and urged Americans not to waste their time attempting to cross the border without the appropriate documentation.

“Our borders are currently overwhelmed with overweight men, women and children from the United States of America,” he said, “we have no other choice but to close our borders and build this wall to help secure our country”.

Emergency pop-up McDonald’s restaurants have been erected along the border controls to help feed the starving refugees. The Mexican Navy reported it has saved several hundred people from drowning after trying to cross on makeshift rafts.

In a harrowing incident, one desperate family attempted to cross on their 400lb father, who later had to be sunk after the rescue as emergency crews failed to hoist him to the helicopter.

487 deaths from ‘That Thing Ireland Doesn’t Talk About’

 shared from waterford whispers   with thanks

shutterstock_390416188ACCORDING to the latest available figures from the Central Statistics Office a total of 487 people died as a result of that thing Ireland doesn’t talk about in 2013.

The deaths continue on from a trend started in 2007 which has seen the numbers of people dying from that thing we don’t talk about increase.

While a number of factors have been attributed to the rise, concerns have been raised about the prevalence of that thing among the youth of Ireland.

“It’s troubling, and I want with every fibre in my body for something to be done about it, but look if it’s alright, I’d prefer you didn’t bring it up at all,” spokesperson for the Irish Commission On Things We Don’t Talk About Suzanne O’Gorran told WWN.

The government also stressed its reluctance to talk about the thing, but is said to be relieved the statistics have come close to levelling off.

“That is a relief as we can now look into how to continue to do nothing about it, if we get this right, we could even cut funding a bit,” a government spokesperson shared with WWN. The government confirmed it was available to talk about the recovery, road safety campaigns and sugar tax.

Many members of the public have admitted to being aware of someone they know doing that thing, but owing to the troubling nature of talking openly about something in Ireland, they remain reluctant to speak.

Spain doing Fine: There’s No Government like No Government

Spain Hasn’t Had a central Government for the Last 9 Months — and People Love Itno-government

Only 2.3 percent of respondents in a July poll by Spain’s Center for Sociological Investigations considered the lack of government the country’s major problem, and the figure is getting even smaller.”

adapted from a  Derrick Brose post in TheAnti-Media.org.. with thanks

For more than nine months, Spain has existed without a traditional national government. In the face of this lack of central authority and planning, Spaniards have done ”the impossible”: they have thrived without a government.smash-capitalism

Spanish politicians warned the people that allowing the national government to fade away could have disastrous effects. However, as the New York Times notes, “the crisis seems to have offered a glimpse of life if politicians simply stepped out of the way. For many here, it has not been all that bad.”

No government, no thieves,” Félix Pastor, a language teacher, told the Times. Pastor said the people of Spain were better without a government because the politicians were unable to cause any more harm. Rafael Navarro, a 71-year old pharmacy owner in Madrid, told the Times that “Spain would be just fine if we got rid of most of the politicians ...” Continue reading “Spain doing Fine: There’s No Government like No Government”

Pokémon Go Get Em: Opportunities for radicals

Pokemon Go

from Kate Aronoff, Waging Nonviolence, with thanks 

If you happen to have been living under a rock this past weeks, there’s a good chance someone turned it over looking for Pokémon. Pokémon Go, Nintendo’s free augmented reality app, has been as ubiquitous in the news as the presidential election in EEUU.poke-lexternal

For the uninformed: Game designers have placed Pokémon and in-game items at specific hot spots around the country, encouraging users to venture out into their neighborhoods or others, and to contest for “gyms,” where they can challenge other players for control of a particular location……GO GO anti HATE

…..The long-term viability of Pokémon-based campaign strategies remain to be seen — only time will tell if the game is a passing fad or something with a longer shelf-life. But so long as rare Pokémon continue to send stampedes into Central Park, can it be used for good?

180px-Pokemon-go-blmAs Dylan Matthews points out for Vox, Pokémon Go one-ups social media’s ability to draw people out, given that it actually gets bodies moving and to a particular location. Rather than retweeting or liking a post, players have to physically flock to lures. It’s why the Clinton campaign has been so eager to put it to use registering voters, turning up to Poké Stops and gyms. Anyone can place Pokémon “lures,” which attract creatures to a certain area, up around a city — and even more so if you happen to be working with a budget.

Even before the Clinton campaign started using it, NextGen Climate, an environmentally-focused voter turnout organization, had begun trying to put the app to work. “In each of our states, r1267_nat_rnc_v-53e58476-6dcb-46ad-a3ea-66dc238c3345NextGen Climate will be dropping Pokémon Go lures in strategic locations, which means we’ll release rare Pokémon in a specific location at a specific time,” said Suzanne Henkels, the group’s press secretary….

NextGen has held Pokémon-themed events across New Hampshire, Ohio and Iowa, complete with lures and recharging stations. In Nevada, they hosted a “real life Poké Stop” and had refreshments alongside “organizers there to register attendees to vote and educate them about the importance of electing climate champions in November.”…

…..But its uses, some . go. b.eyond the ballot box as well. Brandon Holmes — a civil rights organizer with the community organizing outfit Vocal New York — identified several ways the app could bolster grassroots movements.

1116003“The more players you have in an area, the more rare Pokémon will show,” he said, suggesting that players “build a large occupancy somewhere like Trump Tower or divestment targets and constantly attach lures to stops.” Organizers, Holmes added, could even plan marches that route through different Poké Stops, though he saw a challenge in “keeping the attendees captivated and not buried in their phones during speeches or chants … You would need some serious marshaling and the world’s best energy team.”CoEgLIYWEAAjlzW

The Black Lives Matter Alliance of Broward [County, Florida] held an event yesterday at a Fort Lauderdale supermarket “looking for new ways to engage the community around the issues surrounding the movement for black lives,” encouraging participants to bring “water, friends” and “lures.”

Another set of activists are also looking into how the game might bring people out to fossil fuel infrastructure sites within their communities, though opted not to be named in this article as the effort has yet to launch.westboro-189558

One model Holmes saw as instructive was at the famously bigoted Westboro Baptist Church, the site of a gym where a Clefairy (“fairy-type”) Pokémon named “LOVEISLOVE” beat out Westboro faithfuls for control. “If we could find gyms that are solid targets, we could nickname Pokémon after our campaign messaging and organize enough folks to train the gym to be virtually unstoppable,” he said. “We could also name them after our organizations.”

Pokémon might also come in handy for fundraising efforts. After a Long Island pizza shop paid to have a rare Pokémon sent to their store front, sales jumped 75 percent by day’s end. “We could host a campaign-specific fundraiser where [a certain percentage] of the funds go directly to Pokémon Go for a rare Pokémon and the rest go to a specific campaign/action,” Holmes said, noting that this could involve lobbying Nintendo and Niantec, the game’s creator, for the ability to purchase rare finds.

Jeremy Gong, of the Sierra Club’s San Francisco chapter, was more skeptical.   “I imagine that one can only do rather shallow organizing with Pokémon Go — like Facebook events, the game could be great for a quick turnout, but there’s no guarantee those Poké-hunters are in it for the long haul,” he warned. “I don’t imagine a lot of people saying, ‘I came for the Snorlax, but stayed for police reform.’”

Like any other new app or new technology, Pokémon Go is no replacement for the day-to-day work of community organizing and well-timed mobilization.

But it might offer a few more pieces to an activist toolbox that — in 2016 — has never needed to be bigger.
