Pittsburgh Anarchist News

If you’re not familiar with the Filler collective, part of our project is to highlight local news that’s relevant to the anarchist movement in Pittsburgh.

2020’s been wild so far, so here’s a brief recap of some of the autonomous individual and small group actions that you might have missed.


Starting around March 1st, stickers with anti-police, anti-racist, and pro-neighbor messages started going up all across the East End, the most prominent of which featured a friendly cartoon chameleon and the message “Fuck Cops, Love Neighbors.”


On March 5th, ATMs owned by PNC bank were sabotaged in retaliation for the bank’s collaboration in the construction of the Mountain Valley Pipeline. In a communique claiming responsibility for the action, an anarchist crew called ‘Guerrilla Biscuits’ stated,

“Last night, we sabotaged 7 ATMs […] by jamming adhesive-soaked plastic rectangles into their card slots. It was quick, easy, fun, and no one even gave us a second glance—you should try it sometime. Whether it’s because of the cold, a health precaution, or for criminal direct action… one day we’ll all wear gloves and masks.”

On March 6th, Nazi propaganda stickers were spotted and removed by anti-fascists in Polish Hill.

On March 9th, a variety of anarchist and anti-fascist posters were seen wheatpasted across Polish Hill.

March 26th, graffiti supporting the April 1st Rent Strike went up in Bloomfield and East Liberty.

On March 30th, the North Shore Police Memorial was vandalized with spraypaint that read “fuck the pigs.”

All throughout April, the corporate media felt really sorry for all the nice landlords who didn’t get their rent checks. Won’t someone please think of the landlords?

Sometime in early April, a CCTV camera was destroyed in Oakland.

On April 13th, the Allegheny County Jail began releases hundreds of inmates due to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you want to support the abolitionist movement in Pittsburgh, we recommend checking out the Bukit Community Bail Fund and Dignity Act, among others.

On May Day, an autonomous crew coordinated out a series of banner drops in support of the 5 Global Demands which is a decentralized campaign that is mobilizing in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. In a communique claiming responsibility for the action, the group stated,

“Too many of us in Pittsburgh believe that the course of the response to this pandemic is out of our control, that we can only make the best of plans and actions handed down from on high by politicians, landlords, and business owners. It does not have to be that way… our power lies in our autonomy and our solidarity—together, we can all protect one another.”

On May 7th, several American flags were stolen and burned in solidarity with anarchist comrades facing an illegal eviction.

On May 9th, unknown individuals dropped piles of sand at the entrance to City Hall, partially blockading access to the building. The action was taken in retaliation to the city’s decision to close the Polish Hill skatepark by dumping sand all over it.

On May 12th, a gold exchange store located off of Liberty Avenue in Bloomfield got its windows smashed up.

And lastly, we’d like to give a quick shout out the folks who have escaped Pittsburgh Community Corrections so far this year. Most recent police reports indicate that at least two of yinz are still breathing fresh air – godspeed to the ungovernable!


LYRICS [when available]

Overstep by PREVENTION

“WE KNEW WE COULDN’T MAKE IT ILLEGAL TO BE EITHER AGAINST THE WAR OR BLACK, BUT BY GETTING THE PUBLIC TO ASSOCIATE THE HIPPIES WITH MARIJUANA AND BLACKS WITH HEROIN. AND THEN CRIMINALIZING BOTH HEAVILY, WE COULD DISRUPT THOSE COMMUNITIES. WE COULD ARREST THEIR LEADERS, RAID THEIR HOMES, BREAK UP THEIR MEETINGS, AND VILIFY THME NIGHT AFTER NIGHT ON THE EVENING NEWS. DID WE KNOW WE WERE LYING ABOUT THE DRUGS? OF COURSE WE DID.”

-JOHN EHRLICHMAN

AIDE TO PRESIDENT NIXON

RISING FORM,

TAKING HOLD.

PEOPLE LOCKED AWAY.

BROKEN FAMILIES.

OVERSTEP

REDIRECT

GO AND POINT THE BLAME.

OVERSTEP

SUSPECT

WASH AWAY THE NAMES.

OVERSTEP

COALESCE

MEN ARE LOCKED AWAY.

OVERSTEP

SUPPRESS

COUNTING DOWN THE DAYS.

RACIST HANDS,

PLUNGE DEEP IN.

PEOPLE LOCKED AWAY.

BROKEN COMMUNITIES

RACIST MACHINES,

OILED IN BLOOD.

CREATION OF THE CELL

OUTCAST, THEY STOOD.

VILE CONDITIONS,

FALLEN DISGRACE.

HOPELESS ENDEAVOR.

MANIPULATED,

BLINDED HAZE.


44 Bomber Jacket by HIGHWAY SNIPER

The kids in a two parent state

Content to play favorites and supplicate

And long for the glory days

And act like a false knight of hope didn’t pave the way

Gaza – 500 children dead, hospitals bombed

Billions in weapons to SAAF – while Yemenis starve

Unmanned aerial gunships snuffing out innocent lives

And meanwhile back on the homefront

Thousands of families torn apart

Ripped from their lives and deported

A typical legacy of abuse

From Clinton to Bolton

Here’s your Nobel Prize


Spineless by SOLEMN JUDGEMENT

I’m sick of the fucking nonsense that y’all spout

have you ever done something that wasn’t for yourself ?

you’ll run your mouth when no one‘s around but you won’t keep me down

you’re an enemy to no one except yourself

thinking you’re so high up you can’t get knocked down

I can stick my nose up too

I can pretend to be better than you

you’re scared senseless to face your vices

you’ll judge those for using their voices

spitting and screaming waiting to be heard

you’ll live in comfort off of those who suffer

so you could be the righteous ones

say something to my face

but I know you won’t do anything

and I just wish that you’d choke

on every shallow excuse

that comes out of your throat

God forbid you have a back bone

you ignored the cries

of your friends

who begged you to have their backs

you left a knife in it instead


Sellout by SCAM LIKELY

(sample from the documentary East of Liberty)

consensus, concessions,

new contexts, same lessons

big tents and repression,

from sellout progressives

keep wasting all our fucking time

jagoffs tow their party-line

“Dont write ACAB on that sign

Never ever speak your mind!”

radicals are burning out ,

from pushing for event turnout,

to build the org, to win reform,

to hardly change the social norm

talking heads wont ever stop,

working hard to be a cop,

but just because you pay their rent,

doesn’t meann you won’t be dead!

they’ll promise you a good career

swear that they won’t interfere

You joined up, or so I hear

Young and dumb and so sincere

now they control your agenda

escalate n’ they’ll just fire ya

protest marshal motherfucker

you ain’t no one’s compañera

Here in Pittsburgh, so called radicals are collaborating

with the Bloomfield development corporation
.

The BDC wants to bulldoze a grocery store

to build a yuppie condo in order to attract the tech industry.

and by legitimizing a ~ “dialogue” ~ thru events

that the BDC controls, these sellouts are deliberately

channeling community anger into a dead end

just so they can boost their NGO organizing careers.

From the Hill District to East Liberty, we’ve seen this before.

radicals are burning out ,

from pushing for event turnout,

to build the org, to win reform,

young and dumb and so sincere

now they control your agenda

escalate n’ they’ll just fire ya

protest marshal motherfucker

Quarantine by DECIVILIZE

I’m trapped inside,

For days on end,

There’s no way out,

The crisis deepens.

Blaming the other,

Divided by hate,

Racist lies,

Sold by the state.

Quarantine!

The worlds on lockdown.

Isolation!

Government crackdown.

The world’s a mess,

I am distressed.

Quarantine:

the social contagion.


Green by SAP

GREEN IS THE COLOR OF NATURE’S DEATH

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WANTS GREEN NOT BREATH

GREEN IS THE COLOR OF NATURE’S DEATH

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WANTS GREEN NOT BREATH

MONEY RULES THE EARTH

MONEY KILLS THE WORKERS

WHO MAKE YOUR CLOTHES, TO SURVIVE

AND GET PAID SHIT

CAPITALISM CREATES DEATH

OLD MEN WITH GREEN LIES

CAPTIAL LIES

OLD MEN WITH GREEN LIES

NATURE DIES


Best Bet by SUBURBAN DOWNGRADE

This motherfucker’s gonna have it’s day.

This motherfucker ain’t goin’ away.

This motherfucker’s in disarray.

This motherfucker’s gonna make a display.

Your best fuckin’ bet, best believe, stay away!

This motherfucker doesn’t need you.

This motherfucker won’t confide in you.

This motherfucker might make it through.

That motherfucker might find out, too!

Your best fuckin’ bet, best believe, stay away!
