(en) Australia, Melbourne, Captain Cooks Cottage Trashed With Paint for Invasion Day

Date Wed, 30 Jan 2013 17:49:15 +0200


The monuments and museums that fill this dead city only enrage us. ---- They impose on public space the supplanting societies creation myth. ---- The creation myth of Australian society is that rather than looting, murdering, and displacing the original inhabitants, the Europeans were bringing a higher order of civilisation, economic organisation and religion to savage lands. ---- The denial of this brutal and revolting history is nowhere more evident than on the 25th of January, the celebration of Australia Day – the date of invasion. ---- This is why we trashed the absurd shrine to genocide, Captain Cooks Cottage, with paint. ---- The Australian state has constructed a deceitful myth of consensus. That we have all signed some kind of social contract to be good Australian citizens. Well fuck that we don't want your bourgeois morality or your so called “civilisation”.

We refuse to quietly submit and bow our heads to this commodified life of wage slavery.

We must act on our own behalf, directly and without mediation.

We must break with any group that seeks to limit the struggle, to negotiate, or to reconcile with the state or capital.

We must abandon the concept of appealing to the “justice” of the coloniser and instead embark on a direct path of destruction of the existing order and a concrete practice of solidarity.

SOLIDARITY TO THE ORIGINAL PEOPLES OF THIS LAND FIGHTING BACK
FROM MUTITJULU, TO REDFERN, FITZROY, PALM ISLAND, AND EVERYWHERE

DESTROY THE COLONIAL SYSTEM THAT OPPRESSES US ALL
