Manado, Indonesia: translation of anti-authoritarian flyer from fuel price demonstrations

Anti-Authoritarian Flyer

For us, protesting the increase in fuel prices is merely one partial action that is not essential. For us, being trapped in the logic of the economy and political issues is a shallow analysis of the commodification of life under capitalism and the State. Whether the price of fuel rises or not, it won’t change the fact that each of us remain consumers whose only role is to buy. Each of us remain low-cost workers whose role is to produce the commodities that we will buy. Each of us remain zombies who don’t have anything other than the obligation to continue being ruled, oppressed, tortured, consumed and to accumulate all the things we don’t need.

The deprivation of lives, their dreams and loves, is too simple if merely contained in economic issues such as rising fuel prices. We are too angry to understand that it is far more important for us to define and reclaim our lives, than simply following the glamour party of false opposition: to protest or support raising the price of fuel.

Demand more! This is an attempt for the possible to break out of impossibility, and the hypocrisy and shallowness of life at present.

And what do we want?

Total destruction of society and its entire infrastructure today. The simultaneous collapse of the State and Capital. The collapse of the political and economic tyranny that is the torturer and ties that bind society: civilisation.

This is the main reason behind the distribution of this flyer, together with peaceful demonstrations taking place in almost every city in Indonesia. Our involvement is to interrupt Capital and the State in various ways, including the moments that these demonstrations are taking place, because we consider a good demonstration to be one that clearly shows the face of recuperation.

And what do we demand?

Find your anger and let it flow in the streets. Destroy all property that you consider deserves to be destroyed. Directly attack Capital and the State, although there is no future for them.

*URBAN INSURRECTION FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF A LIFE THAT IS PRESENTLY IMPOSSIBLE*

*(This flyer was distributed during a protest against increasing fuel prices that was held in Manado, 27 March 2012, as a statement of the position of several anarchists that consciously joined the action but refused to submit to the propaganda and sensationalism of the Left and the reformists). *
