Informal Anarchists criminal damage at Vinci Construction in Bristol

A University of Bristol email about criminal damage caused to Vinci construction

I have noticed that a claim of an attack against the offices of Vinci Construction appears to have been “hidden” from Indymedia UK, apparently because of a lack of verification.

I am a current student at Bristol University and was therefore a recipient of the following email from University of Bristol security services. Whilst this does not confirm the events exactly as claimed by the “Informal Anarchist Federation (F.A.I) Insurgents: Bristol North”, it does confirm that criminal damage was caused at Vinci Construction.

I in no way condone the actions of the F.A.I, I am simply highlighting that University of Bristol security services and Avon and Somerset constabulary are treating the situation as real and potentially threatening to the University.

I have redacted (*******) internal phone numbers and email addresses in the interests of the safety of the university.

Dear Staff and Students
You may be aware that earlier this week criminal damage was caused at the offices of Vinci Construction UK in Hambrook, just outside of Bristol.

The criminal damage is being investigated by Avon and Somerset Police. There is a claim online that Vinci was targeted because of its involvement with various projects – including one with the University.

There does not appear to be any suggestion that individuals are being targeted or that the University itself will become a target. However, as a precaution, police officers have visited the University to meet with the security team and talk to them about the issue.

Staff and students should not be alarmed as we have no cause to believe that the University or individuals are under any threat. However, if you see anyone or anything suspicious, then please contact Security Services on (internal) *******(external) **********
