FAI/ELF Communique For TV & Radio Blackout

04-01-2013 12:00

As part of the ongoing anarchist war for total liberation, we carried out a hit on the Bathampton radio and TV relay station. Fires were set at four points of the structures, and we left undisturbed. As a result of the sabotage, on top of causing hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of damage, we regionally shut down all TV channels on Freeview as well as all national analogue and digital radio stations. Additionally it took down Vodaphone and other mobile networks, damaging police communications and other digital services. 80,000 homes and businesses in the area were affected.

03-01-2013 01:48

The desperate minds of the EDL (Extremely Dim Louts) will be turning up in their handfuls to Manchester to stand around in the pouring Pennine rain, chanting racist, repetitive bullshit in the hope it will solve their middle aged erectile problems. Tommy Robinson banged-up in jail, Kevin Carroll bitching about non-EDL nationalists calling them "muggy mushrooms", and Hel Gower shopping to the cops, fellow members she has got sick and tired of, Windbag EDL are shrinking faster than a harpooned balloon.

PR 19 '2013- A Crunch Year for Coal and the UK Coal Industry

01-01-2013 13:19

This press release explains why this is an important year for the UK Coal Industry. The industry awaits the outcome of decisions that have to be made this year by Generating Companies, on whether they will adapt their coal firing power stations to meet new European Pollution Standards. If they do not, the use of coal for power generation could fall from over 41m in 2011 to 7m in 2023, thus significantly reducing the demand for opencast coal, if the UK Coal industry can survive that long.

Leeds EDL Organiser Dreams of A Final Solution

25-12-2012 00:12

On a serious note, since Tommy Robinson (Yaxley Lennon) was jailed, more and more EDL divisions have become openly racist. Today, while the spirit of Christmas cheer in the air, peace, love and goodwill to all men and all that, Yorkshire EDL (Leeds) were fantasising about an anti-Muslim final solution where ALL Muslim citizens living in the UK would be "removed", and all immigrants would be denied social welfare.

Peaceful Revolution in Great Britain is about to begin in filthy Enfield slum

21-12-2012 20:19

A peaceful Revolution in Great Britain is about to begin soon and the Resistance is right now preparing to march on Westminster with more than one million people who will camp outside the Houses of Parliament and stay there until we have succeeded in arresting the government for all their crimes and corruption, and for declaring War on the Children.
The politicians will be charged with theft, fraud, deception, false pretenses, corruption, crimes against the People and against the environment, for crimes against humanity and for war crimes, in a bloodless coup where the guilty politicians, bankers, and corporate bosses will face trial, life imprisonment, and possibly the death penalty as well.
