Brazil: Why some anarchists are in the streets (even if nobody called us…)

A position about vandalism, black bloc and smashy-smashy…

It should be clear that we’re not taking to the streets to defend a government, nor Dilma’s nor any other. We’re not demonstrating against the coup, let alone to defend democracy. We are on the streets because today, like every other day, we’re fighting against the Capital, the State and their tentacles. Letting the rebellious and liberatory violence free and contaminating for those who want to be contaminated. We are on the streets to meet with other social misfits and create complicity in the noise of broken glasses and the warmth of burning garbage bins…

We know that political changes (not only in this territory) aim at an ever stronger repression and barefaced violence against those who don’t conform to the social reality they impose on us. We’re also aware that those who will be fucked the most by the present government are those already fucked for years (if not centuries…).

We don’t deny that there are differences between one government and another, but we can clearly see that above all there’s continuity. At the end of the day, the principles of the Temer government were set by the government of PT/PMDB and Dilma with the repressive reforms that they adopted: the UPPs [Pacifying Police Units] in the favelas, the [proposed constitutional amendment known as] PEC 215, the anti-terror law, etc… What we experience now are also the results of the PT government and their alliance with their current “enemies”: militaries in uniform on the streets, the soy king [Blairo Maggi] in the agriculture ministry, more and more torturers in the Congress… PT, PSOL, PMDB, PP, PSB, PCB, etc… in order to keep existing all of them have to “make alliances” between them, step back on their own principles, their own promises, so as to seize “Power”… A true battle for the throne. All governments and all political parties are a big hypocrisy…

But, besides all this, who likes to be commanded? Who likes to be governed, ordered, oppressed? All political parties are different screws and cogs of the same machinery of domination.

We vandalize, yes, against capitalism, the bourgeoisie and domination. And we’re proud of it.

We smash banks, shops, cars because we remember every attack that each and every government has committed against people. Because when a glass breaks in the middle of the night, there’s a piece of hierarchy, authority, property and domination that falls together with it… Every stone thrown, every firework that explodes, every garbage bin overturned is an act of vengeance against state violence we’re experiencing daily…

The broken windows of Bradesco bank branches are a reminder of the billion reais that were invested in the Olympic Games; because we haven’t forgotten. We smash banks because they are symbols of the Capital and institutions that perpetuate the social and “environmental” collapse we’re living.

Every stone thrown is the expression of indignation of all of us, tired of being used, manipulated and dominated by those in government, by the media, by the multinationals… A brick is charged with rage, frustration and more than anything else the freedom of disobedience, of disrespect to property. A brick into a window is the expression of insubmission, of those instincts that were not and never will be domesticated and pacified. It is the capacity to overcome the margins of citizenist protest towards the path of free rebellion. A brick carries all the courage of leaving the house and abandoning the role of the spectator in front of a screen, to run out to the streets and transform them into a field of political action.

The streets, where we meet, do not belong to anybody but the revolt. The streets open the way to take back our lives, they open the way to insubmission and dignity… They open the doors so that everyone can be responsible for themselves without depending on any institution, they open the way of “fuck the State” and of autonomy… and we are there because our rage is expanding, against the social order, not against the puppet that carries the title of the President, but against the entire state structure… because it’s clear to us that the streets shout much more than “Out With Temer”.

From the streets, we’re uncontrollable, in the complicity of the hoodie we’re stronger, and we can live intensively in spaces where the banks will never be something to be defended but institutions that profit from inequality, that take over lives with blows of credit cards and financial interests. There where the bourgeois car is not a dream but a symbol of vanity; where a shop is selling privileges and not just clothes… where we’re able to attack materially against domination.

That the internal repression led by candidates and affiliates of political parties don’t put a halt to our rage, that they don’t put a halt to direct actions…

We had enough of being commanded…

We’re not asking for anything, we’re gonna smash it all…

For uncontrollable upheaval, for revolt, for anarchy
