ICE Facility Attacked in Loveland

14 Jun


Anonymous communique:

Over the weekend of the 15th of May, an ICE field office in Loveland, Colorado was attacked.  Every window and door was shattered, totaling around twelve panes in all.

The unmarked facility is one of many such hidden ICE buildings in the U.S. that attempt to operate in secrecy.  One tactic used by ICE to maintain this secrecy is to take people from their homes in the middle of the night to be “processed” before taken to privately-owned ICE prisons.

By operating in secrecy, ICE is able to maintain this particular sub-station within a shopping and residential district without revealing the repression used to create and sustain borders.

This action was taken in the climate typified by SB1070 in Arizona and local anti-immigrant sentiment.  However, the ICE office would have been targeted regardless of legislation.

Resistance and attacks against manifestations of borders, prison and power will continue as long as families are separated and people are imprisoned, deported, and harassed.

As others have said-


Solidarity means attack.

Colorado Springs ICE office attacked

One dozen Boulder banks get epoxied

17 May

Anonymous communique:

A dozen or so banks were attacked this weekend in the place righteously ignorant liberals and slavishly resentful conservatives call Boulder. The method of attack: really strong glue, applied generously to card readers and other vulnerabilities. As the Gulf bleeds out yet another death knell for marine life on this planet, as imperial wars wage on louder than ever, and as capitalism attempts to recover and tighten its grip, we recognize that it is these institutions which drive the destruction and dispossession as much as any other, while somehow doing so with a benign acceptance in this and many communities. As long as there are banks, anarchists will attack them. More importantly, as individuals continue to fight back against their oppressors in Oaxaca, in Thailand, Kyrgistan, and everywhere else with revitlazed rigor, and as individuals here in the occupied territories of Turtle Island begin to show the world what we are really capable of, we look forward to the day when our ravenous love of freedom and mutual aid, our tireless drive to create space for alternate social relations based upon equality, justice, consciousness, and horizontality; we look forward to the day when all these things present uneqiuvocally the answer to the question, “What do we do… when we’ve glued everything?”

With Love and Adhesive,

May Day attack on Wells Fargo bank

3 May


Anonymous communique from indymedia:

In the latest hours of May Day, a gang of masked anarchists and anti-authoritarians attacked a Wells Fargo in Denver. This rage-fueled rupture took place for a number of reasons, including blah blah blah blah blah GEO group blah blah blah blah prisonocracy blah blah blah corporate pieces of shit sucking the blood of the human race blah blah blah blah blah… Fuck Wells Fargo.

A whole bunch of windows were shattered with a wide variety of stones procured from the lovely landscaping areas around the bank. In a true display of diversity of tactics, larger rocks were thrown through doors and first floor windows, while smaller rocks knocked out panes thought to be out of reach. All participants dissolved safely into the night, a May Day properly celebrated.

Solidarity with all those that got wild for May Day, the fighters in Greece, our comrades in struggle in Oaxaca and all seeking total liberation from capitalist totality blah blah blah blah blah blah blah

Wells Fargo bank attacked in Fort Collins

18 Dec

Anonymous communique:

We smashed up a Wells Fargo bank last night in Fort Collins, Colorado.  We don’t really need to explain our reasons–you probably already know them.  But we’ll share a few things.

We are enemies of capitalism.

We are sick and tired of people being locked in cages.

Wells Fargo is the single largest investor in the Geo Group, which owns many I.C.E. detention facilities–private prisons–around the U.S.  The Geo Group and Wells Fargo profit from imprisoning people in Colorado.

We want smashed prisons and the destruction of capitalism, not just windows–the question is how do we create moments in which insurrection is possible?

We are everywhere.

Strength to us all!

ALF attacks on McDonalds in Denver

13 Nov

We just found these today.  It’s weird that word of this didn’t get to us sooner.  Oh well.  Enjoy:

Communiqué from the Animal Liberation Front
Date: August 13, 2009
Institution Targeted: McDonald’s Restaurants

Received anonymously:

In the early morning on August 8, in Denver, CO we took action. It was our first A.L.F. Action. Dressed in all back with our faces covered we went to our target, a murdering, capitalist fast food restaurant known as McDonalds. When we got there, there were a few people in their cars in the parking lot and one car in the drive through. They weren’t in the way, so they wouldn’t get hurt, so we just ignored them and proceeded with our action.

We ran up to the McDonalds with our hatchets and hammers and smashed all of its windows on one side of the building and a glass door. Then we ran.

We were warriors that night, fighting for animal liberation and we will continue to fight until the killing and exploitation of all animals is brought to an end.

– A.L.F.

Communiqué from the Animal Liberation Front
Date: September 6, 2009
Institution Targeted: McDonald’s Restaurants

Received anonymously:

In the early hours of September 5, in Denver, CO we took action a second time. We went to the same McDonalds we went to the first time. The only people there when we got there were the two managers. We moved towards the McDonalds, grabbed some large rocks and smashed some of the windows and the windshield in both of the manager’s cars; we might have done some body damage to the cars too. Then we went up to the building and smashed some of its windows. By this time the manager saw us, we yelled ‘FUCK YOU, MEAT IS MURDER’, and then we ran. It was a good night

Anarchists give Denver a free ride

7 Aug

An anonymous communique at Colorado Indymedia:

Light rail ticketing machines were disabled at three stations in Denver last night, with their screens broken and stickers left behind: “Free Rides! (A)”

We did this as a gift to our neighbors, free rides for a bunch of people, and to say “hey, this is what anarchy is about.”

A ticket-cop gets on the light rail. “Ticket please.”

“Don’t have one, the machines are out of service.”

They should be out of service every day!

With a wave to our comrades getting busy the world over, we want to say the best actions are also anarchist outreach.

There is such a thing as a free lunch.
