(en) Ireland, Working Class Resistance #10 - More Terrorism in London

Date Tue, 13 Dec 2005 08:02:01 +0200

Following further bomb attacks in London on Thursday 21st of July
police have killed electrician, Jean Charles de Menezes, 27 a
'suspected suicide bomber' at a Tube station in south
London. While running for a train Jean was shot first in the shoulder
and was then pinned down and had 'five shots pumped into
him' according to eye witness Mark Whitby. An inquest later
heard that Jean was in fact shot a total of eight times.
Of course it has since emerged that the victim was not carrying a
bomb and had nothing to do with the bomb attacks. Permitting police
to shoot to kill has claimed its first life "“ another victim of
terrorism has been gunned down in London.
During the same incident armed police gave chase to a train driver
fleeing the scene and the gun fire and put a gun to his head. Other
drivers who initially refused to work as a result were branded
"Cowards" and falsely accused of striking following the second
attempt to carry out suicide bombings on the London transport
With a shoot to kill policy remaining in force for suspected suicide
bombers and the Met chief Sir Ian Blair's statement that his
officers may well kill more innocent people it seems to us that there
are more than just one set of 'terrorists' at large in London.

Anarchists in Britain & Ireland Condemn the London Bombing

The following statement was issued and endorsed by
Anarchist/Libertarian Communist groups and organisations from
Ireland and Britain in the immediate wake of the London Bomb
attacks of Thursday 7th of July 2005.
As social anarchists and libertarian communists, we at libcom.org
deplore the horrific attacks on innocent people this morning in
London. We express our deepest sympathy to anyone affected by the
blasts. We condemn the use of violence against ordinary people and
the perpetrators of the bombings whether they be Islamists or anyone
Terrorist actions are completely at odds with any struggle for a freer,
fairer society and never help oppressed people in any part of the globe.
Instead violence against civilians is a tool of states and proto-states
every bit as brutal as the ones they profess to oppose.
The British Government, by sending British soldiers to kill and die in
Iraq and Afghanistan has made all of us a target for terrorists in their
pursuit of increase profit and power at the expense of ordinary working
We stand for a world in which human solidarity and co-operation
replace the quest for profit as society's driving force, and stand in
solidarity with all people fighting exploitation and oppression in all its
form, from opponents to the occupation of Iraq here to those in Iraq
who are opposing both the occupying forces and the ultra-reactionary
Islamists the Occupation helps strengthen.
Our thoughts today are with the victims of this atrocity, and their loved
