RAAN smashes Air Force recruiters in Rockville, MD

News ArchiveJuly 10th, 2007 - In an attempt to discover how a bunch of murdering cowards like the US Air Force enjoy finding themselves on the other end of some flying projectiles for a change, at around 3:00 AM this morning an autonomous cell of the Red & Anarchist Action Network (RAAN) used bricks and other common household items to smash the shit out of the Air Force recruiting center in Rockville, Maryland.

WE CAN'T AFFORD TO BE INNOCENT: STAND UP AND FACE THE ENEMY!

July 10th, 2007 - In an attempt to discover how a bunch of murdering cowards like the US Air Force enjoy finding themselves on the other end of some flying projectiles for a change, at around 3:00 AM this morning an autonomous cell of the Red & Anarchist Action Network (RAAN) used bricks and other common household items to smash the shit out of the Air Force recruiting center in Rockville, Maryland.

Do we even need to explain the motivation for our actions?

A shout out to our comrades from the Borf: Revolution or Bust Faction (BORFROBF), who late last year gave a similar treatment to the military recruitment center in Silver Spring. Consider this a modest response to your "dare to those here in the heart of the imperial beast to step it up". In suburbs so hollow, may the echo of our actions be long and loud!

Big ups to all those out there who claim RAAN. Fuck them haters who don't realize we are but a few of the millions of ant's bites which can topple this elephant once and for all.

No war but class war, communism or bust!

IT'S A DO OR DIE SITUATION - WE WILL BE INVINCIBLE!

RAAN has written of the weirdest claims of action I've ever read.

Probably because they're one of the weirdest revolutionary groups you'll run into.
This is an improvement over glueing parking meter locks
but it's still a long way from the kind of sustained effort it's going to take to get the military out of our communities, let alone overthrow the state and capitalism.
A for Effort gang :)

I suspect the bit about "haters" was intended for some libcom posters who raked raan back and forth over the coals for a variety of mostly good reasons.

At least RAAN is doing more than those Libcom haters who spend endless hours hating on anything other anarchists are doing. That's the main reason why I've given up on participating or even reading that site. It's a real shame that Libcom allowed all of that macho political mast*rbation to be brought over from Myspace.

Props to all of the RAAN peeps and all of your ongoing work.

I might not affiliate myself with RAAN, or even compeletly understand what their about, but I gotta give them props on their actions!
Keep it up! Actions speak louder than radical websites anyway!

look, i don't want to be too paranoid, and i realize that this post risks being deleted, but after perusing the RAAN site, and noting how they boast of their actions by linking their actions explicitly with RAAN, and observing their militant imagery, i sometimes wonder if we're not dealing with a COINTEL-PRO situation. if not that, this group is seriously self-congratulatory.

why do the RAAN folks link their actions to RAAN? it's sort of like ELF, but at least ELF managed, for a while, to keep the actions separate from the spokesperson, so that the spokesperson could claim that he had no idea who was behind it. why do they spray-paint RAAN alongside their revolutionary slogans? the RAAN folks even put up photos of themselves on that site, albeit with bandannas...

seems like a perfect way to net people who would sympathize with this stuff. don't get me wrong, more actions, even clandestine, wouldn't hurt, but the security culture needs to be much stronger with RAAN and people who are diggin their shit should be careful about linking themselves with it (via the site).

There have been actions that have been claimed in the name of 'crimethinc'.

RAAN (at least in my interpretation) is an autonomous movement that is based up upon groups that are both above ground and also those that take direct action and are annoyomous.

I don't really see any sort of problem with this. RAAN cells are doing underground actions and claiming them for the network, but are doing them not in association with aboveground groups that may also be associated with the network.

This dosen't seem to be that hard to grasp.
