Santiago: Breves palabras arengando ante el llamamiento internacional en solidaridad con lxs presxs anarquistas (Chile)

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

La solidaridad anárquica, activa y combativa es el llamado abierto hacia lxs compas de acción para intensificar el conflicto contra este orden social. La realidad actual en las prisiones para nuestrxs hermanxs no es de sumisión y arrepentimiento, si no todo lo contrario; de solidaridad, memoria y lucha constante. Son muchos lxs compas que transitan firmes por ellas desde hace varios años, por lo mismo nuestro camino de guerra contra el Poder es también un guiño cómplice hacia nuestrxs hermanxs.

Un mínimo gesto de acción como es levantar barricadas llenando de propaganda el sector obstaculizado es dejarle claro a quienes transitan por ahí -como a la policía- que hay sujetxs que no olvidan a lxs presxs y la lucha misma. Lo hemos dejado claro en algunas acciones: [8/1], [3/3], [26/4] entre otras. Nuestra opción es clara y apostamos porfiadamente por ella, nadie lo puede ocultar, ni lo puede negar.

Ante esta Semana Internacional con lxs Presxs Anarquistas hay que prepararse, no puede pasar desapercibida para ningún/a compañerx antiautoritarix, ni menos para los ojos del Poder, la apuesta esta clarísima, más claro echarle agua… Palabra y Acción!!!!!

Saludamos a lxs prisionerxs anárquicxs y subversivxs que no niegan sus vínculos y se mantienen en pie de guerra contra el Estado-Kárcel-Kapital:

-Marcelo Villarroel, Freddy Fuentevilla, Juan Aliste, Carlos Gutiérrez
-Alejandro Astorga, René Sanhueza
-Hans Niemeyer Salinas
-Alfredo Canales Moreno
-Nataly Casanova, Juan Flores, Enrique Guzmán
-Javier Pino, Natalia Collado
-Sergio Álvarez, Ignacio Muñoz
-Alberto Olivares Fuenzalida
-Tamara Sol Farías Vergara
-Camila Sanhueza, Juan González [Iquique]
-Mónica Caballero, Francisco Solar [España]

¡¡¡¡¡Fuerza compañerxs: La lucha continúa!!!!!
¡¡¡¡¡A multiplicar y potenciar el ataque anarquista contra el Poder!!!!!

Atte: Algunxs Anarquistas por la Solidaridad Revolucionaria.

Élargissons la solidarité révolutionnaire depuis la Turquie, du Kurdistan jusqu’à Palestine

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

Notre appel en hommage au camarade Cemil.
Élargissons la solidarité révolutionnaire depuis la Turquie, du Kurdistan jusqu’à Palestine !
Les captifs patriotes, révolutionnaires ne sont pas seuls !

L’État fasciste turc et l’État raciste sioniste d’Israël se rivalisent à torturer et à sauvagement attaquer les captifs progressistes, patriotes et révolutionnaires.

Mohammed Alan, captif palestinien en grève de la faim depuis plus de deux mois, est dans un état critique, branché par les fascistes sionistes qui tentent de le nourrir contre son gré. Face à de lourdes conditions d’isolation, des attaques visant les familles des captifs, des fouilles corporelles dégradantes, de lourdes tortures appliquées mêmes en cas de transferts vers les hôpitaux, de centaines de captifs palestiniens, membres de différentes organisations parmi lesquelles AL FATAH et le FPLP, poursuivent la grève de la faim.

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

Responding to the call for international solidarity with anarchist prisoners of war, on the Saturday night of August 22 we hung a banner in a busy part of the city, briefly breaking the flow of the wretched and miserable normality which the city–prison offers.

Freedom to all animals, human or non-human, fire to all prisons.

Palabras del compañero Javier Pino (Chile)

Saturday, August 22nd, 2015

EL COMETA PASARÁ ETERNAMENTE.

Cuando llegó la propuesta de ayunar por la semana de agitación en memoria
del Pelao Angry mi corazón se revoloteó entero, mi interior dijo vamos y
decidí desafiar a la cana y a mi cuerpo. No es fácil ayunar en una cana tan
plástica como Santiago 1, toda la alimentación de aquí no ayuda en nada
para hacer ayunos y dañarte lo menos posible.

Ahora compartiré lo que siento individualmente por recordar a Pelao.
Físicamente compartimos 2 veces pero esto no hace que me sienta cercanx,
leyendo su libro y compartiendo con seres que lx conocían ha hecho que
cuando lo traigo a mí sienta emociones liberadoras, son sensaciones
encontradas, pero todo el rato trato de deconstruir la idealización de la
muerte física sin “apologizar” el contexto en el que murió. Viene a mí una
sensación de tranquilidad sabiendo que físicamente se fue enfrentándose en
ese arrojo que tanto le gustaba, ese arrojo puro y hermoso que hace
destruir de cualquier forma la civilización. (more…)

Acerca del Companero Gabriel Pombo da Silva y las Macrocarceles (Espanya)

Friday, August 21st, 2015

Hace un año que el compañero Gabriel Pombo Da Silva fue trasladado al centro penitenciario de Topas (Salamanca). Ahí continúa resistiendo a la dura experiencia de la privación de libertad (después de haber pasado ya más de 30 años trás las rejas), así como a los distintos dispositivos que la administración penitenciaria no para de perfeccionar como mejor conviene a sus intereses y los de sus patrocinadores.

La prisión de Topas fue creada en el marco del programa de construcción de 20 macrocárceles promulgadas al inicio de los años 90 por el gobierno del PSOE de Felipe González. En la misma época, el siniestro y socialista director de Instituciones Penitenciarias, Antoni Asunción, introdujo la directiva interna que administraba los regímenes FIES.

La prisión de Topas tiene pues, las características de estas nuevas fábricas de encarcelamiento en masa – en España el número de personas presas se ha doblado en 20 años, pasando a grosso modo de 35.000 en 1991 a 70.000 en 2011. (more…)

Update on anarchist prisoner Natalia ‘Tato’ Collado (Chile)

Friday, August 21st, 2015

On August 15th anarchist prisoner Natalia ‘Tato’ Collado was transferred from the S.A.R (High Security Section – the isolation module) back to the ‘Public Connotation’ module where anarchist comrade Nataly Casanova is also held. Tato had been in the isolation module since July 27th as punishment for her rebellious and defiant stance against the prison guards.

At this stage Tato has not been able to share a cell again with Nataly however she is out of isolation now and back in a module where the conditions are a lot less suffocating and restrictive.

Let’s not forget that the comrades Natalia and Maria Paz are still being held in the S.A.R., accused of the arson attack against a barracks of the Homicide Investigation Police.

Solidarity and insurgent affinity with the imprisoned comrades!

Palabras de Sergio Álvarez en semana por la memoria del compañero Sebastián Oversluij (Chile)

Friday, August 21st, 2015



English version

Saludos compañerxs, junto con darles todos mis cariños escribo estas
palabras en respuesta al llamado de agitación en memoria de nuestro
hermano caído en combate Sebastián Oversluij, llevado a cabo en esta
semana. En mi posición actual de preso no fueron los muchos los detalles
de los cuales me pude enterar de este llamado pero frente a la
iniciativa individual y colectiva hecha por compañerxs surge en mi la
necesidad de hacerme presente aunque sea con el gesto solidario más
mínimo, tomando las armas que tenga a mi alcance para continuar en
actitud de guerra recordando a aquellxs que dieron su vida y su muerte
en la lucha contra el Poder, la Autoridad y su Dominación. Por eso
durante el día jueves junto al comparo Ignacio Muñoz encerrado en el
módulo 34, hicimos ayuno entendiendo que nuestra corporalidad puede y
debe ser tensionada como un frente más desde dónde atacar. Y aunque el
ayuno o huelga de hambre no haga un correlato con el carácter que le fue
dado a este llamado más enfocado al empapelar las calles con afiches,
rayado, dibujos, panfletos, murales, etc; creo que cada individuo con
cada una de sus particularidades, posibilidades y contexto debe aportar
en las instancias que surjan de la memoria y busquen generar una
proyectualidad del conflicto. (more…)

International solidarity to Mikalai Dziadok (Belarus)

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

From ABC Belarus:

On 23 August Mikalai Dziadok will become 27. Once again he will have to celebrate his birthday in prison. Relatives and friends of the anarchist were hoping to have him outside of the prison that day, because he was supposed to be released in March this year. However out of fear for political protests and losing power, the state has decided to keep Dziadok one more year in Prison.

You can send him your warm words at:

213410, Gorki, ul. Dobrolubova, 16, IK-9, PKT
BELARUS
Dedok Nikolai Aleksandrovich / Dziadok Mikalai Aliaksandravich

You can also send him a letter through our online form – https://abc-belarus.org/?page_id=579&lang=en

We call everyone to congratulate our friend on that day with actions of solidarity and letters.

Read this article about our comrade and the background to his case, as well as this report about the direct actions.

Solidarity to Mikalai and the struggle against the state of Belarus.

Call out for an International Week for Anarchist Prisoners

In summer 2013 members of several ABC groups discussed the necessity of introducing an International Day for Anarchist Prisoners. Given there are already established dates for Political Prisoners Rights Day or Prison Justice Day, we found it important to emphasise the stories of our comrades as well. Many imprisoned anarchists will never be acknowledged as ‘political prisoners’ by formal human-rights organisations, because their sense of social justice is strictly limited to the capitalist laws which are designed to defend the State and prevent any real social change. At the same time, even within our individual communities, we know so little about the repression that exists in other countries, to say nothing of the names and cases involving many of our incarcerated comrades.

This is why we have decided to introduce an annual Week for Anarchist Prisoners on August 23-30. We chose August 23 as a starting point, because on that very day in 1927 the Italian-American anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were executed in prison. They were convicted of murdering two men during an armed robbery at a shoe factory in South Braintree, Massachusetts, United States. Their arrest was a part of a bigger anti-radical campaign led by the American government. The State’s evidence against the two was almost totally non-existent and many people still today believe that they were punished for their strong anarchist beliefs.

Given the nature and diversity of anarchist groups around the globe, we have proposed a week of common action rather than a single campaign on a specific day making easier for groups to be able to organise an event within a longer target period.

Therefore, we call on everyone to spread the information about the Week for Anarchist Prisoners among other groups and communities and think about organising event(s) in your city or town. The events can vary from info-evenings, screenings and benefit concerts to solidarity and direct actions. Let your imagination run free.
Check out the flyers in different languages. Please send reports of your activities to tillallarefree (A) riseup.net

Poster about the cases of Evi Statiri, Athena Tsaklou & Nikos Romanos (Greece)

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

“Reach what you cannot”N. Kazantsakis

For four months the state has held Evi Statiri, the life companion of comrade G. Tsakalos in prison and has kept Athena Tsakalou, the mother of G. and C. Tsakalos isolated on the island of Salamina depriving her of the ability to have contact with her children.

These persecutions serve as the state’s revenge for the war initiated by the members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, a war that they continue to fight even from within prison walls where they still seek their freedom, preparing themselves for the destruction of their prison.

The comrades Aggeliki Spyropoulou and Christos Rodopoulous are in custody for the same case.

Meanwhile, the prison authorities have denied the educational leave that anarchist prisoner Nikos Romanos won with his hunger strike.

Several thousand kilometers away in Chile the comrades Nataly, Juan and Guillermo began a hunger strike to demand, among other things, the release of their comrade Enrique Guzman. They ended their hunger strike after the release of Enrique. But then four days later, the bastard prison authorities overturned their decision and returned the comrade to Santiago prison.

We for our part know that we cannot expect anything from our persecutors. Our solidarity with the unrepentant anarchists is continuous and aggressive and smashes down all forms of deprivation of liberty.

Until they are free we stand in complicity alongside the armed anarchist guerrillas.

Revenge or nothing.
