Pour Concrete on the Train Tracks- Antifa Instructions

*Update- Speed caused the crash. But now that the world knows Antifa puts concrete on train tracks, they will be considered a suspect for all future train wrecks.

 

Early in the morning of April 20th we poured concrete on the train tracks that lead out of the Port of Olympia to block any trains from using the tracks. Particularly easy was placing wire on the tracks to send a signal to the train company that the tracks were blocked. This action can and has been easily repeated wherever train tracks are. For more info on how to do this check out this explanatory video.

Dear Olympia commune,

Standing in solidarity with your port blockade preventing the transport of fracking supplies we temporarily shutdown train lines throughout the larger oakland area by shorting the track circuits with jumper cables. Stay strong.

In every single town,
Until every officer is down,Love and solidarity,The Bay

From Dec. 9th Antifa website- During this week we attached wire and jumper cables to the main Union Pacific rail line running through the state of Nebraska to disrupt rail signals and delay trains that mainly carry coal from the mountainous west to population centers in the east

Nov. 20th-Infrastructure is power; if we want to dethrone capitalists and mad presidents, go after their infrastructure. If we want to slow climate disaster, go after their infrastructure. Stop the trains. Block the port.

Olympia, WA: Train Tracks Sabotaged To Stop Fracking Equipment

Early in the morning of April 20th we poured concrete on the train tracks that lead out of the Port of Olympia to block any trains from using the tracks.

We also were emboldened by the spirit of all those who have risen against the white supremacist police in Furguson, Baltimore, Oakland and elsewhere, as well as by the riotous opposition that has characterized the first few months of Donald Trump’s reign.

Resistance to this many-tendriled death machine has and must take many forms. Some have set their goals narrow and try just to stop the port from shipping proppants. We are aiming beyond, for a liberation that destroys all vestiges of oppression and colonization leaving us free to experiment with ways of living in cooperation on our own terms. We want to unlearn the legacies of domination that we have inherited. We need a diverse and vibrant resistance composed of more forms of destruction, mutual aid and solidarity than we can yet imagine.

This action and actions like it are quite easy to do yourself. This only took a few hours and a little bit of planning. The hardest part was calming our nerves. Particularly easy was placing wire on the tracks to send a signal to the train company that the tracks were blocked. This action can and has been easily repeated wherever train tracks are.

Concrete on the tracks is just a start

Oil-Trains Disrupted in Solidarity with #NoDAPL [Vancouver WA]

 Feb. 12th- This is a claim of responsibility for causing disruption to the Pacific Northwest Corridor Rail Line north of Vancouver WA. On several occasions over the last few weeks, 6-Gauge Booster cables were attached to rail junctions at several points along the rail lines. Artificially triggering the railway signalling system. This is a low risk and easily reproducible form of sabotage that can potentially cause massive delays and economic losses to the every day functioning of extraction industries.

It should have been a celebration for new $181 million train route. What went wrong?

They were the first passengers to use a $181 million railroad project that paralleled Interstate 5. It should have been a celebration Monday for everyone on board Amtrak Cascades 501.

Instead, it became a disastrous derailment that has killed six people and hurt nearly everyone on board the train, along with several auto passengers on the freeway below.

Disclaimer: FPR is not claiming Antifa caused todays derailment, but they better hope it wasn’t concrete on those tracks. We agree with them fracking is horrible for our country. Sabotage, however, is not the answer.

*Update- Speed caused the crash. But now that the world knows Antifa puts concrete on train tracks, they will be considered a suspect for all future train wrecks.
