The Notorious H.A.G.

09-06-2011 22:55

Sources have informed us that two anarchists, believed to be members of an autonomous proto-working group allegedly connected to the Hackney Anarchist Group(HAG) were kidnapped by state employed thugs for the ‘illegal' flyposting of a poster for the open launch meeting of the Hackney Anarchist Group*, to take place this Saturday.

Sources have informed us that two anarchists, believed to be members of an autonomous proto-working group allegedly connected to the Hackney Anarchist Group(HAG) were kidnapped by state employed thugs for the ‘illegal' flyposting of a poster for the open launch meeting of the Hackney Anarchist Group*, to take place this Saturday(

The two rebellious propagandists allegedly used a paste made from flour and water, also known as Marxist glue (, to affix the poster onto a corporate billboard in the early hours of this morning. Although this action by the mischievous, and possibly anti-democratic, working group was against the guidelines of HAG, as stated on the bottom right of the poster below, it is important we stand in solidarity with all victims of both state oppression and the corporate control of so-called public spaces. The perpetrators of this minor but valiant act of class-warfare have since been released by their captors and are said to have spent the afternoon celebrating their (relative) freedom by drinking green tea on a sunny patch of grass.
