Anarchist Black Cross Members Supporting Bombers
04 Mar 2006
Modified: 10:19:56 PM
This week, Anarchist Black Cross member Earth Lib (ELF) posted an article about Two teens blowing up a McDonalds toilet with an IED.

While ELF did not post an opinion or a sympathy statement with the two teens, it was clearly intended to show that anti-McDonalds activists scored a strike against the corporation. It was also intended to inform Anarchist Black Cross Members of the current punishment scales for getting caught.

ABC routinely analyzes tactics and punishments of violent criminals, weighing the degree of support to give them based upon the stated rationale of the criminals involved. ABC also studies the delivery mechanism of explosive devices and then formulates or modifies its tactics.

In the McDonalds Bombing a 7 year old child was nearly killed. Had the two boys done the bombing out of righteous ecoterrorism and not sheer boredom, ABC would have also extolled their activity.

ELF routinely informs and takes part in ABC.

This work is in the public domain

I especially liked the part where you backed up your claims of ELF -ABC collaboration with facts and sources. I also liked how you didn't specify if you were referring to the ABCF or the ABCN. Could it be that you don't know what you're talking about?

hmmm interesting. assuming everything you say is true (kendo) which it clearly isnt- but pretending that it is... when there is an entire industry around making weapons, dropping bombs, building tanks, and an entire arm of the government dedicated to war- why is it that the "bombers" are two random teens who didn't even kill someone?
Why not write a story about flag-waving patriots supporting bombers? or would that not make good news because it's so obvious?

The trolling on this site has gotten out of control.

The only cases of a McDonalds toilet bombing I could find were:

In in Beirut from 2003 on the ultra-right "Free Republic" website.

And as for the American McDonalds bombing, it was apparently carried out by military servicemen in Lakeland, Florida, upset about a bad milkshake.

As far as the two Massachusetts based Anarchist Black Cross collectives are concerned, they are part of the ABC *Network* and act autonomously.

The Earth Liberation Front has no official members or membership. There are no leaders or organizers for the group.

Send an email to elp4321 (at) hotmail.com and ask him if he did it.

Chip is just mad because Cajungal (I mean Chantel) is from his branch and got the post.

HAHAHA! ABC comes forward and complains of trolling. Not only that but interested parties covering their ass. That is rich!

I am from *Islamic Death Squad.* We act autonomously too. Nobody tells us what to do. We just do it.

I am from Anarchist Black Cross Fairies. We have nothing to do with Anarchist Black Cross Network, Anarchist Black Cross Federation, or the Anarchist Mauve Cross. We sometimes affiliate with Anarchist Black Underwear, but never with Anarchist Black Anarchist.
