Kentucky RAAN Communiqué 5/25/07

5/25/07

Friends,

Early this morning, warriors of the Red & Anarchist Action Network (RAAN) used an industrial bonding agent to sabotage and disable over 150 coin-operated parking meters in downtown Lexington, Kentucky.

That we have provided an unexpected dose of free parking to this city is not to say that we are in favor of car culture, which turns our environment into a dangerous and unfriendly space by removing us from it - or that we want to people to have an easier time commuting to their awful jobs, though we do earnestly hope that our actions have brightened someone's Friday. No, we are always looking towards a world where both coins and commuting are irrelevant. We wished only to demonstrate how easily and instantaneously the militance and ingenuity of those who struggle can alter those same oppressive situations we take for granted day after day.

Our actions are meant to coincide with today's 5th year anniversary of RAAN's diverse radical activity as a dispersed insurrectionary network. We send our warmest regards and heartfelt solidarity to all those around the world who are continuing to build this unique revolutionary tendency, always understanding its cultural significance along the way.

FOR SOCIAL EQUALITY THROUGH SOCIAL UNREST! UP THE NIHILISTIC ATTACK ON SOCIAL ORDER!

Sincerely,

A bluegrass cell of the R.A.A.N.
