Who We Are

There is so much misinformation about anarchists that we wanted a group to loudly and proudly show people what anarchism is really about. We will do that through concrete projects in the community that support people and contributes to the world we want to see. We want to break some common stereotypes about anarchists and do things that make people take a second look at anarchism.

Intersectional Action

We at NAC recognize that our society is dominated by intersecting oppressive power structures, including capitalism, the state, white supremacy / racism, cis-hetero-patriarchy, ableism, agism, and classism. We are committed to intersectional action in all that we do.

Why we don’t get permits

This statement is not a commentary in response to any specific group or event

As a collective we do not seek permits from State authority for any meetings or events. We collectively understand that participation with State authority lends that authority credence and legitimacy. We do not believe the State has legitimate authority over the autonomous actions of people. And so we collectively refuse to legitimize or prop up white supremacist, colonialist, patriarchal, ableist, classist power structures wherever possible; refusing to seek permits falls directly in line with that collective ethic. 

Note: This is not a condemnation of other groups we collaborate with who may seek permits. It is a statement of our collectively agreed upon desire to thwart any and all State authority. We invite people and groups to reflect on why they choose to engage with the State and seek permits.

Attack on Starbucks

Attack on Starbucks

This reportback was shared with us anonymously. NAC did not organize this action. This was also posted on https://pugetsoundanarchists.org/attack-on-starbucks-eugene/.

Wednesday, May 15th, Kalapuya land, so-called eugene.

Before dawn, an autonomous group smashed the windows of a local starbucks, leaving only “Free Gaza” and “Land Back” written in paint. This action was taken to bring awareness to the genocide taking place in Gaza and to interrupt business-as-usual. This act of vengeance was carried out on May 15th, Nakba Day, a day recognizing the ongoing genocide and forced displacement of Palestinians.

Starbucks has repeatedly shown its hostility towards Palestinian liberation, and did so most recently when it sued its workers’ union for posting a statement in support of Palestine on social media. The economy of eugene is complicit in the genocide happening in Gaza; the university and multi-national corporations profit off imperialism while making the city unaffordable for the majority of people there. While starbucks isn’t playing a central role in the genocide the israeli miliary is waging, starbucks is symbolic of an amerikkkan psyche and economy that feeds off imperialism. The chain is a tell tale sign of gentrification and a staple of the white middle and upper middle class. We won’t stand aside and let the amerikkkan economy continue unabated when it’s a system founded on and actively fueling colonialism and genocide.

This was done by a group of autonomous antifascists who echo the words of the anti-zionists that shut down the “Friends of the IDF” gala:

We have no name. We are not an organization. We are not an entity. Do not try to find us. We are everywhere and we will not stop.

Palestine will be free.

Scholz Noise Demo

This reportback was shared with us anonymously. NAC did not organize this action.

Early in the morning on May 15th, a group of about 20 people crept from the shadows in a bourgeois neighborhood adjacent to the University of Oregon, in so-called Eugene. Their target was one particular mansion, the residence of the president of the U of O John Karl Scholz. On this night Scholz would not sleep! Just as Palestinian mothers don’t sleep knowing their children are not safe from the hell that rains down on them on any other “regular” night.
They came armed with buckets and drum sticks, water cooler jugs emblazoned with messages of resistance, whistles, and megaphones. As they approached, the racket started with a drum beat here and a whistle blow there, but soon the whole medley joined in, complete with chants led by megaphones. Some people stood on the steps leading up to the mansion, but others faced their fears and marched right up to the front door. A few people ran around the whole building several times and into the driveway where the president’s luxury vehicles were parked. The noise continued for almost 10 minutes, but the cowardly Scholz never turned on a light, let alone showed his face.
Just as abruptly as it started, the noise ceased. The arrival of two pigs signaled the moment it was time to scatter. Some asked whether they had done enough. That perhaps it was time to go back for round two. Why should the president be allowed to continue his slumber when so many innocent Palestinians continue to be slaughtered on a daily basis?
In the end, it was decided to fight another day. Rather than be angry, Scholz should consider himself lucky that his adversaries only arm themselves with noise makers, and not guns, bombs, and rockets as they do in Gaza.
DEATH TO NIKE!
FUCK THE DUCKS!
ESCALATE FOR GAZA!
