There is something inherently beautiful about a colourful riot. Do you know when the cops are walking down the street with their robot costumes singing the tune of the imperial march and everybody is a little bit excited and a little bit scared? Then all of a sudden, balloons start flying in their direction and there is an explosion of colours over them, covering their helmets, their googles and their shields, making them unable to see and also sad, wet and very sticky? Well, that is how you would make the streets colourful again. Or you know, if you want to visit the ministry of defence as you believe their murderous grey doesn’t suit very well their loving attitude towards people and would like the building to look deep red. Whatever floats your boat, we’ve got you covered (in paint). 

To make paint bombs you will need:

A recipient that can be thrown, like water balloons or Christmas baubles.

This recipe is simple.
Dilute the pain with 1 part of water, two parts of paint. This will make it runny, so if you want it to be a little stickier you might want to skip this step.

Grab your throwing recipient (if it is Christmas baubles you’ll need to slowly remove the top bit where you would hang it and fill up about 1/4 of the volume with sand. This will give it incredible aerodynamics, helping it fly exactly where you want it to be.

Add the paint and water dilution to the recipient and then close it. If using baubles you might need to hot glue them.

Throw wherever you want them to explode. We would never recommend anyone throwing them at people or private property so our recommendation is, of course, throwing it at white canvases and then capitalising on them by selling them for a million dollars each.

Other ideas might include filling up fire extinguishers with paint, or water pistols. The sky is the limit (or gravity in this case).

Enjoy and make sure that you bring a little colour to your life.

“After much time spent looking through maps, we had identified a ‘free-range’ egg farm that we couldn’t not pay a visit to.

With the exception of an electric fence, which was easily crushed under-foot, we encountered few obstacles upon entering the site.
We undid the latches to the large shed, and two of us climbed in whilst the other two remained outside, keeping lookout and passing through the carriers we had brought with us.

Inside, the stench of ammonia was unbearable. We found our breathing was noticeably different after only a short while in there, and yet these chickens were densely packed in there. This was what they got to call home.

We quickly loaded as many as we could into the carriers, later counted as 26. 26 lives saved. They are now living happy, free lives at an animal sanctuary.

Without animal sanctuaries and individuals who are able to home these animals, we would not be able to liberate them. Please support your local sanctuaries, and if you find yourself with a free night, you know what to do…”

Helium isn’t just a funny gas that makes you sound silly. It also is a tool for dissent. Today we take a look in the past and get inspired by ACT UP, a collective that worked tirelessly to bring attention to AIDS and HIV+ issues. They flew a giant banner in Grand Central Station (NY) reading “Money for AIDS not for wars” in a protest related to the Gulf War, bringing massive attention to the issue with a few helium balloons, a big fucking banner and a lot of fucking rage.

Tools needed:
– Balloons.
– Helium cannister.
– A BIG banner with your favourite slogan written on it. Ours is “Fuck off” but whatever floats your boat.
– Rope.
– Some plastic bottles filled with water.
– Two wooden rods (or broomsticks or whatever you want) the width of the banner.
– That’s it.


This shit is pretty self explanatory isn’t it? Get that banner painted and dried up (seriously, stop making banners twenty minutes before the demo, they get smudged and you look like you are not a professional anarchist). Attach the rods to the banner with some rope so that the top and bottom of the banner stay straight and don’t fold inwards.

Add a plastic bottle with a little bit of water to the two bottom corners. This will help keep the banner extended all the way down in case the wind moves it around. It might not be necessary if the bottom rod is heavy enough. Test it!

Tie a couple of strings to the bottom of the banner giving yourself two or three metres on each side. This will be helpful during your testing process.

Fill up the balloons and tie them to the top of the banner, testing how many balloons you actually need to lift that big ass flag for freedom. Remember those nice ropes at the bottom of your banner? You can thank me now for not losing your banner to the sky. Take note of the balloons you need and take them off. You can now roll up the banner with the rods included for easy transport. Remove the bottom testing strings unless you want people to easily remove your beautiful banner.

On your trouble making day, fill up fresh balloons. Do a few extras in case some pop or get lost. Tie them in two bunches and leave enough rope to tie them to the banner when you arrive to the location. Once you get to whatever building you want, tie those balloons and release the beast.

Do you want to step it up a notch? Tie some rape alarms to the banner and set them off before releasing the whole system. That will 100% bring attention to what you’ve just done and if done inside of an office building, will annoy everybody immensely. Two for the price of one!

ENVIRONMENTAL DISCLAIMER: Will people please think of the fucking turtles. No seriously, plastic is shit, littering is shit, so littering plastic is .

Do this inside of a building so it cannot fly to the sky. Depending on the building of choice, the business might have to get someone with an air gun to come shoot the balloons down, specially if there are rape alarms attached to it. This is assured havoc.

“In a capitalist society, money has power.

When you encounter a butchers shop, full of the bodies of innocent animals that have been murdered, what else to do?

Hit them and hit them hard.

By destroying these places, we not only give them a financial hit, but this has the knock on effect of delaying business, eventually maybe even putting them out of business. It also sends a clear message. You fuck with the animals, and we will fuck with you.

Four activists arrived by car (with a doctored numberplate) into the small town in which the scummy butchers was located. Armed with spray paint and tubs of gloss paint, we parked down a back alley and made our way towards the target. We couldn’t believe our luck when we realised the butcher’s van was parked on the road we had chosen!

Even with extensive planning, we had to hide in the shadows to avoid some late night locals, before we crept round to the front of the shop.

The gloss paint was thrown over the walls and we had fun ‘decorating’ the exterior with slogans that would have left the scum with a very clear message.

As we ran back to our vehicle, we did of course stop at their van for round two.”

“Whilst out and about a ladder trap was discovered under the cover of woodland. Clearly the gamekeeper had been having a lot of success here as carcasses of many shot birds were found. One crow was still alive but most likely only hours from suffering a similar fate. We released them, and watched them fly to their freedom, before we returned to smashing the trap and causing as much damage as we could.

Whilst we know that this action alone won’t bring the shooting to an end, we hope to have sent a clear message to the scum – the torturing and killing of wildlife will not be tolerated and we will continue to protect those who can’t protect themselves.”
