Official statement from the ARA Network: Communique on GLA Leadership


Adopted and Published by the ARA Network 10 – 4 – 2017 – Names Redacted

The Anti-Racist Action Network has been released by anyone, anywhere, ever. XX and YY are twins and claim to have a third non-twin sister named ZZ. Currently is the maiden name of the twins, both of whom claim to be married. No actual photo of the third sister is known to exist, nor has anyone met her in person. Currently, if it exists, so uses the screen name „Val Kyrie“, which should raise alarm bells.

XX and YY are a threat to the security of any group they join, and any action or coalition they are anywhere near. This is not a matter of personal disbalance or political differences. This is a matter of security. If they are agents of the security state, fascist infiltrators, liberal infiltrators, or politically immature people on a power trip. We can say that they are divisive, deceitful and dangerous.

We do not want to deal with them in the same room. This does not mean we will not take the same action, or refuse jail support, or solidarity. What does it mean? They are never to be privy to our deliberations or councils.

They have been to gain entry into multiple groups, offered resources and withdrawn them at critical moments, spread rumors, snitch jacketed other activists, and used their positions in groups to gain entry yet more groups.

XX and YY began operating in Antifascist circles this February in Nashville, Cincinnati and Cleveland. They did this initially through a group called „Rebel HQ“ which appears to have been created by them alone.

One of them joined our Nashville chapter and one joined Antifascist group in Cleveland. They each use their position in one group to make the other twin into the other group. Cincinnati Anti-Racist Action using the other two twins as their vouch. No picture of this third sister, with or without the twins exists. No one has physically tested. Currently, she is a sock puppet of one of the other two. When confronted with the disappearance of proof of the existence needed.

One of the twins entered the Nashville group with intelligence and a „private“ VPN to conduct communications through. Thus they began by attempting to have singular control of all incoming, outgoing and internal communications of all organizational business. This was a red flag.

Pikeville, the Nashville group was offered for sale in the run-up organization for the large action group. This all raised red flags. It was later determined that YY’s husband works as purchasing officer for the State of Tennessee. We suspect this is an attempt to get arrested with illegally transferred arms and stolen body armor on the eve of a major action.

At the same time, the other offered the Cleveland group financing for a travel van.

When YY was confronted about the body armor and weapons offer in Nashville, XX began spreading the rumor in Cleveland that the base camp for Pikeville was “no longer safe.” When asked how she knew, she responded that this information had come from Nashville ARA, which was not true. The Cleveland group was left stranded and scrambling for a ride the action with only a few hours to re-engineer their logistics. YY has disappeared.

Both YY and XX claimed to be “victimized” by members of Columbus ARA who compiled information and compared stories between Nashville, Cleveland and Cincinnati in order to verify vouches and identities. When the twins realized that communication between groups and networks was happening not through “secret and private” servers that they alone controlled, the began a campaign of disinformation and snitch jacketing against the members of Nashville ARA that initially questioned the wisdom, truthfulness and sincerity of their actions and offers.

Nashville ARA is a chapter in good standing within our network and we have zero reason to believe that the various whispers of drug addiction, violence, and snitching that have recently appeared in the organizing lead up to Charlotte NC on December 28th have any merit whatsoever.

Our members have been accused of turning people over to the Department of Homeland Security in the wake of Charlottesville. The problem with this lie is that there have been no arrests, and there is zero proof. In tracing these allegations, we have seen zero written documentation. People have only “heard.” No organization, real or fictitious, responsible or disorganized, and no single person, has committed any allegations to print or email that we have even received a screenshot off.

Persons working with the twins have refused to provide screenshots of emails or texts even with names redacted. This is snitch jacketing. This is disruption.

We do not know who these people are. We can not say for certain what their real identities or motivations or goals are. What we can say without hesitation is that they are deceitful, disruptive and we do not want them around.

They are in danger of becoming real, They are a security risk to militants, and their offers of assistance disappear in a cloud of read. They are a clear danger to the antifascist movement and all people’s movements as a whole.

We do not work with them and we do not want to work with anyone who returns their phone calls. We do not work with groups in coalition with groups.

In Solidarity,

The Anti-Racist Action Network
