…and if you can’t get to a major demo you can always joint Britain’s first Cyber Strike!..


Lulzsec and Anonymous have officially declared war against all governments, banks, fat cat scum and big corporations the world over. Spread the word, the revolution has begun!..

Salutations Lulz Lizards,
As we’re aware, the government and whitehat security terrorists across the world continue to dominate and control our Internet ocean. Sitting pretty on cargo bays full of corrupt booty, they think it’s acceptable to condition and enslave all vessels in sight. Our Lulz Lizard battle fleet is now declaring immediate and unremitting war on the freedom-snatching moderators of 2011.
Welcome to Operation Anti-Security (#AntiSec) – we encourage any vessel, large or small, to open fire on any government or agency that crosses their path. We fully endorse the flaunting of the word “AntiSec” on any government website defacement or physical graffiti art. We encourage you to spread the word of AntiSec far and wide, for it will be remembered. To increase efforts, we are now teaming up with the Anonymous collective and all affiliated battleships.
Whether you’re sailing with us or against us, whether you hold past grudges or a burning desire to sink our lone ship, we invite you to join the rebellion. Together we can defend ourselves so that our privacy is not overrun by profiteering gluttons. Your hat can be white, gray or black, your skin and race are not important. If you’re aware of the corruption, expose it now, in the name of Anti-Security.
Top priority is to steal and leak any classified government information, including email spools and documentation. Prime targets are banks and other high-ranking establishments. If they try to censor our progress, we will obliterate the censor with cannonfire anointed with lizard blood.
It’s now or never. Come aboard, we’re expecting you…
History begins today.
Lulz Security,

Resistance Begins NOW!

June 4, 2011


June 4, 2011

Apparently private security guards in London have been given ‘limited policing powers’ as part of a Government scheme to ‘relieve the petty crime burden on forces’. The ‘Community Safety Accreditation Scheme’ (catchy!) is a Home Office initiative which enables police chiefs (cuz we all know how trustworthy they are) to designate targeted police powers to private firms (private and power, a recipe for disaster if ever there was one!).

Under the scheme the security guards are given the power to: Request a name and address for a string of offences including criminal damage, begging and anti-social behaviour; to confiscate alcohol being consumed within a designated public place or by a person under the age of 18 years; confiscate cigarettes from under 16s; and stop cyclists riding on footpaths!

Now your average plod is a fascistic little twat by nature, but they look positively human compared to your average security guard. The job seems to attract every LITTLE HITLER and S.A.S. WANNABE on the planet!

Seriously, when they’re off duty most of them spend their time sitting around in Ex-Army combat fatigues watching re-runs of ‘The A Team’; do we really want to give them the power to HARASS our kids?

And take a look at ‘the firms’ involved… The first bunch of empowered security guards (aka privatised police force) are 15 employees of Ultimate Security Services; a company who have based their logo on, who else?…, the SAS…

Spot the difference?

Who Dares Wins! Eh, Rodders?

The beautifully named ‘Jasmine Spring’ popular uprisings in the Middle East have inspired people all over the world. One by one people are finding the courage to take a stand against their own corrupt governments. The good news for the all too passive UK is that the wave now seems to be moving northward over Europe. Understandably our media is not so enthusiastic when it comes to reporting uprisings in an EU country, but that’s exactly what’s happening in EU and NATO member state, Croatia.

As France 24 reports:

Every other evening for the past ten days, the streets of Croatia’s capital city Zagreb have been filled with a miscellaneous hodgepodge of several thousand citizens united around a single goal: getting rid of their corrupt government.

The Beautiful Idea

March 13, 2011

More often than not we anarchists are portrayed as violent, thuggish, punks who just want to smash everything – the system, capitalism, the state, etc, etc. Sometimes it’s a fair comment – the Brigade look forward to the day when they corner Nick Clegg, David Cameron, Ed Miliband and a bunch of assorted royals (except for that Andrew fella, he looks like he can handle himself) in a dark alley with no CCTV 😉 – but this is not the whole story.

Anarchism was once widely known as ‘the beautiful idea’, and for good reason. At it’s core is a general and genuine love of human freedom. As Mikhail Bakunin said in 1870:

We wish, in a word, equality – equality in fact as a corollary, or rather, as primordial condition of liberty. From each according to his faculties, to each according to his needs; that is what we wish sincerely and energetically.

Ok, so it’s not as catchy as ‘Friggin in the Riggin’, but it’s hardly the maxim of an angry, anti-social misfit. The Brigade will always be punk at heart, but we recognise that anarchist ideals should be more widely celebrated, so Warren has decided to accentuate the positive and create a blog dedicated to anarchy as ‘the beautiful idea’.

He’s collecting influential pieces from people who are not always considered anarchist thinkers to show the depth and passion of the anarchist philosophy…

In Doncaster we’re still reeling from the economic (…and actual, thanks largely to the Met and the British army) blows delivered by the last Tory government. Now they’re sticking the boot in with a 8.9% reduction in council funding… this financial year alone!

The Local Government Association has labeled these cuts the “toughest in living memory”.

In some ways we can understand Eric Pickles decision, he’s obviously naïve… what exactly can that fat bastard know about deprivation? Isn’t it about time he deprived himself of a few meals? (PAID FOR USING HIS SECOND HOME EXPENSES NO DOUBT!) But that’s the real problem here; bloated millionaire shit-heads are making decisions that affect a world they have no connection with and know nothing about. Isn’t it time we took control of our own future?..

Things are going to get tough around here. But don’t be fooled into thinking it would have been better under a Labour government. We already had a notoriously crap 1-star council under their rule. In truth the three main political parties in the UK (or should that be 2 now the Lib Dems have shown their true colour?) are following a single minded Neoliberal agenda. The sad truth is that democracy – everywhere – has been appropriated by insatiable corporatism… it’s the same sad anti-poor/anti-planet story the world over regardless of whose supposed to be in the driving seat!

The only real answer is to take back power from the banks and corporations – and their political lackeys. We would like to propose that Doncaster Council becomes the first OCCUPIED COUNCIL in the UK!

That’s right, kick out the government and self-manage – we can hardly do a worse job!

Council workers know their job better than central government. Let’s pull together and build our own completely autonomous local infrastructure. Let’s appropriate all the necessary resources, machinery, knowledge, manpower, etc.  (which we paid for in the first place) and carry on regardless. We can pay the money that we would have paid in taxes to the guys doing the jobs and they, in turn, can spend it locally. Job done.

Ok, we know it’s just a dream – but WHAT a dream! –  and that the people of Donny and their lackluster leaders are all too likely to sit back and watch their services go to shit around them as per usual (COME ON PEOPLE, PROVE US WRONG!) – but if you are incensed enough to have a polite word with the Tory Scum who are attacking our town then leave a comment here…
