A hacker from Ukraine seized $25,000 from Russian drug market and gave it for charity in Kyiv

Expropriation is an instrument of social revolution. Even corporate media couldn’t get past this story! The civilian population and humanitarian groups in Ukraine this winter, with constant shutdowns in electricity and heating, especially need funds. You can donate to our online newsletter for continuous work volunteer activities joining this fundraising. A couple of cups of coffee in your country even before the war could be equivalent in price to the daily wage of a worker in Ukraine. Many thanks everyone in advance!

Expropriation in a supermarket in area of Ilisia by Anarchists

On Thursday 22 December we carried out an expropriation at the Market supermarket in the neighbourhood of Iisia and the products were shared among the people at the adjacent street market. If the legality of the State has taught us anything, it is that it can steal in a legal way. From morning to night we work grueling hours, running around like crazy and unable to make it through the month. We practically live just to work.

State and bosses devalue our entire life in every possible way. They rob us through wage labour. They execute us with the cops on the streets. They torture and rape us in the police stations. They drown us at the borders. They throw us out of our homes.This is their world of legitimacy.

The supermarkets have multiplied their profits, especially from the pandemic period to today, in times of the “energy crisis”. For us, we saw the shopping basket as the ultimate irony against our wellbeing. So we thought it right to fill our own by taking back at least the minimum of all that has been stolen from us through our legal dispossession, along with the time stolen from our lives.

Expropriation is the principle against conformity and submission. We call for the immediate multiplication of similar actions in all cities. During the action, thousands of flyers were thrown with slogans such as:

“Attack on supermarkets, refusal of payment, war on the bosses’ war”

“Destitution is the shopping basket, violence to the violence of capitalism”

“Precision is theft and class violence, everything for everyone”

“We don’t just want the basket, we want the whole supermarket”.

“Living on benefits, surviving on installments, conflicts, strikes, expropriations”

We were not surprised by the complete concealment of the action by the establishment media. We know that they are terrified of the generalisation of similar actions, but also of any form of social indiscipline. We will overcome this obstacle with our imagination.

We reserve the right

Berlin: “Everything just stolen!”

We are not friends of big speeches and sometimes there is therefore not too much to write. The Denn’s Biomarkt on Antonplatz in Berlin is certainly not the largest, nor the most beautiful of its kind. Nevertheless, we took the trouble – from Tuesday to Wednesday the 19.10. – to leave a few stones and spray “You are the crisis” on the entrance.

Denn’s Biomarkt we can populistically call the extended arm of the Greens in the neighborhood. Those who have long had to turn over every penny can’t afford to buy supposedly fair-trade, socially acceptable and carbon-neutral lavender-apple smoothies. Denn’s oh-so-worldly appeal makes us lose our appetite. Good for the wallet, bad for the soul. We have remedied the crisis mood for a short moment.

Greetings to the “Everything just stolen!” people (translated below), who have taken heart and have quite obviously had a good bite, and also to the everyday criminals, who naturally take their lives in their own hands, bypassing the state and capital!

Hey,

we were today at denns plundering, have captured and distributed goodies worth 900Euro. Others have done it before us, hopefully more will do it after us. Here’s to the hot autumn of looting!

Everything only stolen! Whether heating costs, rent, gasoline or food: Everything becomes daily more expensive! The inflation eats our wages. The relief packages of the policy are in view of the price explosions only a drop on the hot stone. While large corporations are being supported with billions, the only option for us is to do without. For the many people in Germany who were already struggling to make ends meet before the current crisis, this sacrifice has long been part of their everyday lives. And while we now have to consider whether we can still afford the butter on our bread, the owner of Lidl has been able to triple his fortune since 2020. No more price explosions and doing without! We have decided to no longer grudgingly accept the ever-increasing prices. We take what is rightfully ours! We don’t let them take the butter off our bread (lol) – a sandwich without butter is no sandwich, I always say.

From the trash cans to the malls

At two supermarkets I come to the garbage bins in which a heap of good food is thrown. I want to take it and feed myself and my friends. The security guard prevents me. Facing at the outrage, as if I wanted to clear the refrigerator in their home kitchen. They act aggressively and recklessly. I ask why it happens. „These are the rules. You can’t take it.”

Damn, they don’t call it with regret in voice. They enjoy that they can comply with these rules by violently or at least his threat.

I ask, „How do you fall asleep in the evening to oversee the food for the landfill and not in people who are hungry?”

„I sleep well because I at least work”, says one of those fuckers.

What to say? The enslaved being boasts its enslavement. It uses its enslavement as an argument against those who avoid the enslavement. I would like to regret it, but I can’t in this case. He doesn’t do it for fear of sanction. Makes it out of conviction. With pleasure and pride. Regret him? Fuck off! When someone is evidenced by his work, I will be what is being arranged from such a preventive measure. With thried hands certainly no one will take food from the mouth. Is it disgusting violent thinking? I don’t care. Deny the hungry food and prefer to end it in a landfill, it is damn disgusting violence. And do care for that.

I won’t be a whipped victim that tolerates this without reaction. Did you take me from your garbage? OK, so now you have me at the shelves in stores. Give me a slap, I’ll give you two. I’m throwing into the bag, what I need and don’t pay for it. I consume something directly and give something. I put something too into subversive activities. What thinks the bourgeois morale? It’s a crime and theft. What about me? It’s a direct action and class fight. This is not a crime like that. I take what they took us. I don’t care about the courts of preachers of bourgeois ideology. I have my judgment and I know where my place is. Out of law, but on justice.

„I only do my work and supervise the rules.” This is the frequent defense of those who deny people food. Likewise, who sent people to gas chambers and gulags. As long as people will obediently listen to the absurd rules, this world will be a cluster of shit to pile up other shit. I don’t want to be another obedient worker that is putting them up there. And so I expropriate and fight. I share my experience and I ally in combat with other angry proletarians.

ANONYM

Expropriation and sharing of books

The capitalists have warehouses full of books. They will only issue them to us in exchange for money. For a lot of money! These are their rules, which I do not accept. I therefore expropriated books for which the capitalists wanted to pay a total of 5980 CZK (230 EUR). I didn’t give them any money at all. I will share books now. I will use some in favor of organizing fight.

Only a general uprising can overthrow capitalism. But when he doesn’t come, I won’t just wait passively and suffer obediently. By expropriation, I take back pieces of what was stolen from us. I celebrate the rebellion and looking for accomplices, not a frightened crowd of citizens. I support the MAGPIE PROJECT and organize other attacks against private ownership.

Lukáš Kalina was released from prison a few days ago. He was convicted because he expropriated buns from the supermarket. I send a warm greeting to him and to all the expropriators of the world.

Organized expropriation in Naturalia!

On September 25, we mass expropriated products in the Naturalia organic food chain, located near Buttes Chaumont in Paris.

Theft allows us to step out of the assigned, everyday and passive role in front of these shelves filled with hundreds of products we can never afford. Theft allows us to get out of it in the eyes of others, but also in our own heads. What could be more exciting than going beyond this framework, which crushes us and see shocked bourgeois faces as we go out without paying with a bag full of food. Spilliness clings to our lives a bit, often in the urgency of finding ways. And what we do together amplifies it all. If we have decided to organize together for this looting, not to expropriate each other in secret, it is because we are not equal during the exprorations. Appearance, mental stress or other characteristics are crucial in the eye of the security guards. We consider it a highly political decision to create a balance of power that is not based on individual skills.

We chose Naturalia because stealing BIO products seems like a good retaliation. All of these products, which we call “good for health and the planet,” are only accessible to certain people. It is a violation of the convention to go and take what is not intended for us. We also want to have fun and eat products that are unusual, but without wanting to promote more accessible consumption, because that is not the world we want.

Meanwhile, organic shops contribute to the gentrification of neighborhoods and always help to exclude the poor. Not to mention the working conditions in these stores with a golden image, where employees are obliged, in addition to basic work, also to convince customers with a smile about the brand’s ethics! Add to that management techniques that lead to depression, resignation, the colonial aspect of the economy, and the production of products from seized sources imported from the other side of the world, or an unimaginable amount of food thrown away each day. A hot idea for strikers in organic stores. The price of organic food is the price paid for the purchase of a clear conscience. The moralizing argument of ethical consumption is always close when it comes to organic food.

We recommend organizing expropriation and handing over goods in favor of political events that are close to us, redistributing or keeping everything to yourself for whatever reason imaginable. And because every retail chain is a potential target, even though it would be possible to shop there cheaply, and because we share the motivation to negate private ownership, we support the attacks on Athens in July (1) and in September (2) by Tera incognita squat support. in Thessaloniki. We also support resisting the crackdown on Liebig 34 in Berlin, « des vitrines coûteuses. Rien que des miettes dans leur bilan, jusqu’à ce que ce genre d’action soit réalisée fréquemment »

We are also thinking of those people who went to prison for the expropriation of breads in the Czech Republic and we share the call of the Magpie project (3) for mass expropriation. Because expropriations are suppressed everywhere, whether they concern individuals, they are spontaneous during riots or organized in this way. “We will not pay for what has been stolen from us.” The class war is raging, and we know very well which side we are on.

Expropriate, expropriate, expropriate!

Expropriation and attack

I support The Maggpie project. Department stores are warehouses where I go to take the things I need. I don’t use money. I took these things for free last week: Food, coffee, clothing, rechargeable batteries, shaving machines, headlamps, tools, colors for graffiti and coffee pot.

The night after I sent anger against the symbol of the capitalist dictatorship. I damaged ATM. This is solidarity greeting to Claudio Lavazza, Lukáš Kalina, Lisa Dorfer, Václav Šupka, Juan Aliste, Kostas Sakkas, Marcelo Villarroel… I want to send greetings to everyone who was expropriated and are now in prison.

EXPROPRIATION OF COMMODITIES FROM CAPITALISTS CONTINUES!

Free printing of posters and pamphlets

A pile of colorful A3 posters plus seventy anarchist pamphlets were printed in a commercial printing shop. A simple trick was to get it without paying. The capitalists lost their profits. Anarchists got what they needed. This is a small contribution to the Magpie project. It is also a practical solidarity with imprisoned anarchists.

We will not pay for what has been stolen from us

Lukáš Kalina, Zdeněk Vítek, Lubomír Sogel, Tomáš Tichánek, Václav Šupka and many others. They all took goods in the shops without payment, and the courts imposed severe penalties on them.

This perverse practice cannot go unanswered. That is why the MAGPIE PROJECT starts. Other goods will disappear from stores and the capitalists will not get money for it. People will use expropriated goods to meet their needs. We will explain why this is happening. We will encourage others to participate as well.

It is not a crime to take goods from the capitalists without paying. They themselves act criminally when they accumulate commodities by exploiting employees. They let them work hard, but they give them only a small part of what they have created with their work. They capture the rest and invest in the next cycle of exploitation. This is theft! This is a crime! Remove the stolen values ​​from these thieves is not a thievery. Contrary to the preachers of Christian-bourgeois morality, we argue that expropriation is a legitimate form of reaction to a world where the path to one’s wealth is paved with the poverty of the other.

Judges and guards imprison human beings. The hypocrites are mumbling about the theft, but they are stealing people’s lives and destroying interpersonal relationships.

Capitalists throw away tons of food and other things every day and do everything they can to prevent people from getting them without paying.

They are unlucky because, even if some are punished, many disobedient people will continue to expropriate. Many of these will never be caught. And if so, they won’t curb them anyway. From the malls it is possible to move to greater goals: to the banks, accounts, settlements and equipment of the bourgeoisie. Just do it!

The MAGPIE PROJECT needs another accomplice. Get involved! Send your stories, videos, photos to publish. Don’t forget safety and don’t get caught!
