We stand firmly opposed to the raids carried out by the FBI, America’s political police, against a number of anti-war and labor activists across the country on Friday, September 24th, 2010. We give our solidarity to those threatened by these raids and to those subpoenaed to appear before a government Grand Jury next month. These attacks must be resisted.

Will the Department of Justice Get Their Way in Seattle? 08:10 Thu 28 Jun 0 comments
Seattle City attorneys officially threw down the gauntlet with the Department of Justice last week, filing court documents which challenged the “reliability and trustworthiness” of a recent DOJ report on the Seattle Police. The DOJ report, which “finds a pattern or practice of constitutional violations regarding the use of force… as well as serious concerns about biased policing,” has been offered as evidence in an ongoing court case brought by Martin Monetti Jr. against the City of Seattle.Monetti, a Latino man, had his head stomped into the pavement after being told by then-Detective Shandy Cobane that he would “beat the [expletive] Mexican piss out of you, homie.”

The First Olympic Event 22:00 Tue 10 Nov 0 comments
In preparation for Vancouver 2010 Olympics sweeping new policies and increased security budgets in the city have all been directed at cleansing the streets of prostitutes and homeless people. The new 'civil city' policies have meant continual harassment for the most marginalized and insecure in Vancouver and highlight what the Olympics has come to represent underneath its thin vaneer of global togetherness.

From the analysis of the facts and evidence that make up case file 2006/4886/5/Q, it was verified that the public servants of the Attorney General's Office of the state of Oaxaca who participated in compiling preliminary investigation 1247/C.R./2006, as well as those in the Federal Attorney General's Office charged with compiling enquiry 11/FEADP/07, based in the Special Prosecutor for Attention to Crimes Committed Against Journalists, violated fundamental rights of legality, of judicial security, and of access to justice.

On Monday July 23rd, four anti-fascists from the Philadelphia, PA area were arrested at what was supposed to be a Ku Klux Klan rally in Center City Philadelphia. Jared Schultz, Tom Keenan, Jason Robbins - all of Philadelphia Anti-Racist Action - and Jim McGovern - of the Progressive Labor Party - were all arrested and charged with a series of trumped up misdemeanors in a situation that - for all practical purposes - was straight up entrapment.
State Terrorism from Atlanta to Oaxaca (2005) 22:19 Mon 29 Jan 0 comments
Oftentimes what separates the revolutionary from the merely progressive citizen, is the recognition that instances of oppression are linked (rather than existing as exceptional moral outrages). Accordingly, in our propaganda the Capital Terminus Collective has sought to make connections between the various issue campaigns we endorse. For example, in the following article (from an older issue of Anarchist Atlanta, but which describes ongoing campaigns in a context, and with an analysis that remains valid) local police brutality is connected to military support for authoritarian regimes abroad.

Police attack anti-imperialist demonstration in Canada 10:04 Mon 09 May 0 comments
A spirited and strong demonstration of approximately 100 people, called by the May 5th Organizing Committee, was attacked by Toronto police. The action was called to demonstrate opposition to imperialism and Canadian corporate complicity in the occupation of Iraq. SNC-Lavalin's shareholders meeting, whose subsidiary SNC-Tec manufactures bullets for the US military, was the target of today's action.more >>
Police State Tactics at Toronto G8 -20 Jul 06 1 comments
Why the state over-reacted is now being debated. Many people figure they deliberately let the black bloc run free as a rationalization for the billion squandered on “security.” An equal number believe the violence was a warning of what to expect if people react against the coming government cut-backs, the so-called austerity program to destroy workers living standards. Others think that the government does not have such a fine tuned level of control and the police simply went berserk, venting their hatred against those who do not share their anti-democratic sentiments.
Ideas: Sound of the Police Feb 11 0 comments
Since the time we are young we are saturated with images of the friendly cop, there to help you and your community. We are told the police are here to protect us from the "bad guys" and keep us safe from the salivating hordes of criminals just waiting for an opportunity to harm us. But what really is the function of the police? Who are they really here to protect? Here Devin K tries to answer such questions.
The day after online footage revealed the presence of police provocateurs at the Montebello SPP summit protest the Quebec police have been forced to admit that the rock wielding men initially confronted for being in the agreed 'family friendly' zone by a union leader were indeed police agents.
They First Came For.... Mar 25 0 comments
Based on Martin Niemoeller's well-known statement about Nazi persecution, which begins, "They first came for the Communists and I did not speak up--because I wasn't a Communist."
January 23, 2007 should be a day that lives in infamy within the movements for social justice in North America. On that date, the nearly four decades long war on the Black Panthers was shown to still exist. Nine individuals, most identified as being members of the Black Panther Party and the Black Liberation Army, were charged with murder or murder related crimes by officials in California. The incident in question involved the killing of a police officer inside the police station in which he worked in 1971. Over 35 years later, the struggle that the killing of the officer symbolizes is alive and strong.more >>

Thousands Of Invisible Pickets Dec 16 WSA 0 comments
The prisoners in Macon, Hays, Telfair, Baldwin, Valdosta, and Smith state prisons do not have picket signs we can read, no do they have speeches that can be read out loud to us. We cannot see their faces or hear their voices. They are mostly invisible to us. It is now up to us to break though this wall of invisibility purposely imposed upon us and prisoners, by those who control society and our lives. The right to strike is the right of every exploited person in an exploitive society, prisoner or not.
Workers Solidarity Alliance (WSA) Statement Against Political Police Raids Oct 07 WSA 5 comments
The WSA condemns this attack and the arbitrary power which it claims for the repressive agencies of the state. We should also note the hypocrisy of the state agencies who do not shrink from supporting or engaging in mass-scale terrorism abroad, while asserting arbitrary powers at home in the name of "anti-terrorism" and allowing domestic armed extremists to assist in policing the border in Arizona.
