“The question is no longer one of theory, but of practice: How to blockade the flows of capitalism as to halt ecological degradation and human exploitation? It may end with generalised social war, but it begins with groups of friends. Hand in hand, bands of friends can co-ordinate to halt the flow of commodities and carbon. Flexing their muscles, perhaps just first for an hour. Then a day. Then a month. The goal: forever.” – Introduction to the Apocalypse
Warrior Up is a research project open to any anonymous input, turning an eye towards the infrastructures and extractive industries that the capitalist economy depends upon – how they function, and how they are vulnerable to direct action.
This project is inspired by the infrastructural sabotage carried out by indigenous warriors in the territory dominated by the Canadian state during land and water defense in the last decades. We want to be a resource for anarchists and other rebels carrying out actions against the economy of death – how can we make these actions more effective, safe, creative, and reproducible?
We need the help of all the brilliant troublemakers in the international anarchist space to make this resource more relevant and comprehensive. Please email us texts that have appeared in guides or communiques (or more obscure sources, like industry literature or counter-insurgency manuals) that can help us to better contribute to taking down the mega-machine. Translation of material that isn’t yet in English would be very appreciated – we can translate from French or Spanish if you direct us towards the texts.
The ‘Infrastructure’ page lists actions and research categorized by target (road, pipeline, electricity, rail, fiber-optic and communication infrastructures). The ‘Arson and Sabotage’ page lists techniques, and is also categorized by target (cars, buildings, heavy machinery). The ‘Guides’ page collects publications on arson, sabotage, blockades, security, and warrior fieldcraft. The ‘Maps‘ page lists infrastructure and extractive industry mapping projects.
Once the project is more comprehensive, we will release a zine containing the most relevant content.
