Welcome to Flammable, a (hopefully) weekly series where we bring you news from other struggles than the animal liberation fight for you to expand, learn and radicalise. Snippets of different stories will be shared, with further reading attached to them via links. When reading this stories, remember that Unoffensive Animal has always been and will always be an insurrectionary anarchist collective that includes anti-speciesism within the political goals. “Keep it about the animals” ain’t gonna cut it with us.
1- COPS BURN EVERYWHERE.
The tragic murder of George Floyd has obviously arisen anger towards the state and its armed puppets across the globe. As well as inspiring tens of thousands of people onto the streets to protest, it has also pushed for autonomous groups to take action by themselves. Two (of the many) actions we would like to mention is the Cop Shop set on fire in Greece by the George Floyd Revenge Unit and the cop cars set alight in Vienna. You can read the reports in the links below:

2- STATE REPRESSION COMES DOWN HARD AND YOU SHOULD SHOW SOLIDARITY:
Many folks have been arrested at the BLM demos. The charges will range massively, but there is one case we believe folks can help immediately with. Sam was nicked in Brooklyn accused of throwing a Molotov to a cop car that apparently was full of cops. They are facing life in prison and charged with attempted murder. They have a gofundme Link to supp[ort their defence. Please if you have ONE DOLLAR to spares send it. Send whatever you’re able to send.
3- OPERATION BIALYSTOCK SEES SEVEN ANARCHIST COMRADES ARRESTED IN ITALY, FRANCE AND SPAIN.
Special cops in Italy threw a massive raid to arrest seven anarchists accused of a range of actions, from use of explosives to spray painting. This is yet another sho by the Italian state of their willingness to eradicate anarchism by throwing charges at folks simply for their political views. Regardless, as it is mentioned in the statement linked below, we should never fall for the “guilt or innocence” that the state tries to play when in reality we all are enemies of the state. Read up the statement about the arrests and please send some letters of support to the folks who already have an address.
