An anarchist group calling themselves the Angry Foxes Cell has claimed responsibility for the fire that has ripped through the Police Firearms Training Centre in Black Rock Quarry, being built in Somerset. In their communiqué they state they used an accelerant to burn the major electrical cables which led to the blaze.
Their reasons for targeting this centre are to respond to the increasing levels of oppression and surveillance by the state. It also marks the two year anniversary of the UK riots. And it also coincides with the announced start of the cull of badgers in the South West of England, which this group is strongly against.
The same group have also claimed responsibility for damaging two vehicles near St George, Bristol. One belonged to G4S, who profit from providing prison and security services. The other, belonging to Amey, was targeted because they provide prisoner transport in the UK and run courthouses in the Bristol Area.
