Poster – Some Anarchist Attacks in Bristol

This list of actions over the last few years around Bristol has been complied to show that successful strikes against the system are not only possible, but are being regularly
carried out. Even lockdown UK with its surveillance and control has weak points and opportunities – we’re only as pacified as we let ourselves be! For sure there’s much more happening than these “claimed” actions, as well as many different forms of struggle against authority.

The common thread in these actions is direct attack targeting the many forms of
domination, in the age-old struggle for freedom. Beyond that, the motivations and analysis of the individuals and groups behind them are varied. For more info on such actions and others across the world, see / (multi-lingual) /
