(en) [Fwd: [StruggleDiscuss] Anarchist statement on the London bombings]

Date Fri, 08 Jul 2005 07:52:06 +0300

As social anarchists and libertarian communists, we 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 else.
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 increased profit and power at the expense
of ordinary working people.

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 forms, 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 ones.
