Melbourne: graffiti

In solidarity with the Greece uprising and with the determination to affect our cities, anarchists painted late night messages around the Northcote area of Melbourne.

Graffiti: 'SOLIDARITY WITH THE GREEK UPRISING'

On the front walls of the Pankoaki Brotherhood building (a nationalistic Greek association) was painted: “SOLIDARITY WITH THE GREEK UPRISING”. On the fence next door was painted something about the Australian situation: “REVENGE 4 TERRENCE D BRISCOE, FIRE TO THE PRISONS”, a reference to a recent Aboriginal death in custody in the NT: death via beating at the hands of the police.graffiti: 'REVENGE 4 TERRENCE D BRISCOE, FIRE TO THE PRISONS'

On High Street – the main road of Northcote, adorning the windows of the Byron Employment apprenticeship and trainee centre: “BEHIND THE MOVEMENT NOT THE DESK”. A comment: we want anarchy not slavery, we want to do the work involved in overthrowing capitalism/slavery and the rich elite and the work we need to do to stay free. Not to be people payed crumbs, chained to the contracts of the managers to spoon-feed the wealthy few.graffiti: 'BEHIND THE MOVEMENT NOT THE DESK'

Also, although removed the next morning, was “BURN THE BANKS” down a large wall that contains Catholic school children by day, across the road from “SOLIDARITY WITH THE GREEK INSURRECTION” and two more comments on capitalism: “BURN CAPITALISM” and “DESTROY CAPITALISM”.

Australia, we urge you – keep your eyes on Greece – nothing is impossible – revolution is in our midst/ours for the making.

WE ARE EVERYWHERE
