(en) US, Anti-Colonial Anarchists Attack G4S Office in Tucson, AZ

Date Fri, 08 Aug 2014 08:22:26 +0300

In the early morning of August 1st, a group of anti-colonial anarchists took out all the windows to the Tucson office of G4S. This action was taken in solidarity with those surviving and struggling in Occupied Palestine and also as a strike against border enforcement on Occupied Tohono O'odham land in southern Arizona. It is also a gesture of solidarity to those planning on blocking Israeli commercial ships from docking in Oakland on August 2nd. ---- G4S provides security and infrastructure for a number of Israeli prisons and checkpoints in the occupied territories. Since Palestinian Prisoners' Day of 2012, G4S has been the target of an international campaign as a result of these operations. ---- G4S is involved in incarceration, immigrant detention, and deportation globally. When people in what are called the U.S.-Mexico borderlands are apprehended on immigration-related charges, it is G4S-operated buses that transport them to detention centers, courthouses, and ultimately to the border for deportation. In the recent past, there have been multiple actions against these buses, including a blockade of the G4S bus depot. A recent action against the buses transporting people to Operation Streamline effectively blocked the criminal prosecution of nearly 70 detainees.

G4S is only one of many entities directly implicated in occupation and militarization on the so-called U.S.-Mexico border and in Palestine. Israeli contractor Elbit systems was recently awarded a DHS contract for surveillance infrastructure in southern Arizona, based largely on the company's work on Israel's apartheid wall. Struggles against borders here and the fight for a free Palestine are intertwined in their common resistance to colonialism.

It is hoped that this action can be another push in the collaboration between anti-colonial, anarchist, and no borders movements. It is also a call to continue the local momentum towards more disruptive and confrontational actions against the systems that seek to control us. We will experiment relentlessly with ways to make these systems totally unworkable on the ground.

It is feasible to attack!
