Tacoma against the police: Reportback from January 24

Tacoma. WA. The night of 1/23 a video went viral of Tacoma pigs breaking up a side show and ramming thru a crowd, directly running over one person. Two people ended up hospitalized from this event. I’m not interested in discourse on whether people were blocking the car, attacking it, or the police were ‘afraid for their lives’ or whatever. The pigs should always be afraid for their lives and if people chose to attack the pigs when they tried to break up their fun, all the more power to them.

So-called British Columbia: Five months of direct action disrupt old growth logging on so-called Vancouver Island

So-called BC (so-called Canada). January 10, 2021, Unceded Pacheedaht Territory:

The San Juan River, flowing into the Pacific Ocean on the southwest coast of Vancouver Island, feels different than most island rivers. This majestic coastal river ecosystem is of a scale one is more accustomed to seeing on the mainland. The meandering braids of the broad estuarine area it shares with the smaller Gordon River, sometimes cloaked in mist that hides the mountains of the surrounding valleys, are home to everything from salmon and steelhead to giant green sturgeon. The area around the watershed is also home to the biggest trees still standing in so-called Canada, such as the Cheewhat Cedar, San Juan Spruce and Red Creek Fir.

Seattle: Without Shelter, People Die: Militantly Defending Cal Anderson Park from Imminent Police Sweep

Seattle. WA. On Monday December 14th, Seattle Police and Seattle Parks employees attempted to enter Cal Anderson park just as dawn was rising to enforce a sweep of the houseless community that has been living there since the end of the CHAZ/CHOP earlier this summer. Seattle Police and Seattle Parks and Recreation employees alike were repelled from entering into the more populated areas of the park by community members, leaving notices stapled to a tree that informed of their intention to sweep the park and for residents to vacate before Wednesday, December 16th, 7:30am. The need for action became clear.

Decentralized Action: A Brief History and Tactical Proposal

The rebellion kicked off by the murder of George Floyd has rocked the so-called United States for over 160 days. On stolen Duwamish territory (“Seattle”), we have witnessed daily actions tying up and attacking the infrastructure which maintains the white-supremacist American police state. Regular actions like the Every Night Direct Demonstration (ENDD) and Every Day March (EDM), as well as periodic larger pushes against targets like the police union clubhouse, are met with repression by the Seattle Police Department. During these SPD frequently abandons their supposed duty to enforce “Law and Order” in the rest of the city by shifting to “Priority Only” calls. The majority of on-duty officers are placed on protest response duties. The high visibility of these ongoing actions opens up considerable space for decentralized militant actions to occur away from the public callouts.
