Received on 17.01.17:

In response to the call for action from drug users in the Philippines to highlight the dangerous situation they are facing under the murderous Duterte regime, we decided to pay a visit to the Philippines consulate in Melbourne.

On the night of 16.01.17 we redecorated the entrance of the consulate with red paint, flyers and syringes. The red paint is to symbolize the blood of the thousands of drug users that have been murdered during a brutal nationwide pogrom by police and Catholic ‘citizen’ vigilante groups since Duterte took power in May 2016. Each syringe represents 25 murdered drug users – around 20 drug users are killed each day in the Philippines. The flyers read ‘PINOY DRUG USERS JAB BACK!’, ‘SHOOT DUTERTE NOT DRUG USERS!’, ‘STOP DUTERTE’S WAR ON THE POOR – DEATH TO ALL FASCIST HEADS OF STATE!’ and ‘ONE SYRINGE = 25 KILLED –…

Activists Vow to Continue “BLOCKING TRAINS” Shipping Fracking Sands to North Dakota Oil Fields – Following Para-Military Raid Last Week

Olympia, WA November 22, 2016:

A train transporting fracking proppants to the Bakken Basin in North Dakota, the source of oil for the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) and explosive Bakken oil trains, was prevented from leaving the Port of Olympia for almost 7 days before mass police repression dispersed a blockade in downtown Olympia, WA. The action began on Friday, Nov. 11th, when activists got word a train shipping fracking proppants was set to depart.

Protesters assembled an encampment, complete with tents, seating arrangements, food, music and a dishwashing station on the tracks at the edge of downtown Olympia. Other physical barricades to complement the encampment were constructed along the tracks to shut…
