Anti-Prison Mobilisation for the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners (Mexico)

Thursday, September 18th, 2014

From ABC Mexico:

The prison, like the police, is a fact necessary to the maintenance of social peace. It is the domination and control that allow this filthy world to be maintained. Jail means fear, uncertainty, shame, loneliness and isolation. Society trains individuals to be good citizens. My strength as an individual takes root in fear rejection could be a limit on my life. Of course, I have fear, like everybody, of many things, but my desire for freedom are larger. Fear is often built and can be destroyed when confronted. What matters is to look beyond, to exceed the limits, boundaries, beyond the walls, mountains, rivers and oceans.
Amelie Trudeu

Solidarity with our imprisoned comrades must be a constant and permanent activity without waiting dates marked on the calendar. However, it is also important to carry out solidarity activities in a coordinated manner between different groups. In that sense it was convened to conduct solidarity actions from 23 to 30 August, not with the idea of centralizing solidarity, but rather to strengthen ties and collaborations internationally.

In Mexico City the call was well received among anarchist groups and individuals. Forums, events in public places, leafleting, radio transmission, an anti-prison critical-mass, placing banners. This is a brief chronicle. (more…)

A communique about the disciplinary wings of Korydallos prison by Dimitris Politis (Greece)

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

via interarma:

In the middle of July, I was transferred to the state hospital of Nikea for some medical examinations. There, given the nature of that examination and due to the police presence during the procedure, which was demanded by the doctor himself, I refused to be examined and I returned to prison. On the 6th of August, I was called to a disciplinary council on the charge of disobedience because I refused to execute the command of my police escort. By entering the office of the commanding prison officer with the intention of telling the prosecutor that I have nothing to state and then leave, I sat opposite to her and she addressed me saying “stand up”. I didn’t pay attention to what she said and while I was telling her to get serious, she told me again with an arrogant smile to stand up. Then, I crumpled the piece of paper where the charges were written and I threw it in her face. I was obviously standing before another arrogant and misled person, who was under the illusion that she owns the world. I was facing another expendable and petty pawn that was under the illusion that all prisoners are inferior to it. So, in order for her to restore her wounded ego, she “punished” me with a five-day restriction penalty in a “special detention wing”. (more…)

Announcement of relatives and friends of prisoners (Greece)

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Translated by Act for freedom now!

Announcement of relatives and friends of prisoners

We are the RELATIVES and FRIENDS OF PRISONERS. We who one day were violently deprived of the embrace, affection, protection, company the friendship of the people who the state has deprived of their freedom. We, because of the voting of the monstrosity called the law for high security prisons, decided to unite our forces, fighting with every possible means to support them.

Recognizing that historically no prison ever corrected anyone and believing in the complete abolition of this outdated institution, we stand in support to:

- All political prisoners, anarchists and communists.
- All penal prisoners who stand with militant dignity inside prison (not the snitches, smack dealers, cooperators of authority, members and preservers of circuits of violence).

Although factual support towards the prisoners can in the future gain, according to our forces, many forms, we begin with the following practices:

1. Publicizing laws and provisions which aim at the full attack of the state against the prisoners (law for C’type prisons etc.).
2. Following their judicial struggles (trials, transfers, release applications, hospitalizations) and publicizing every arbitrary method the judicial authority uses on them.
3. Condemning all sorts of arbitrariness of the correctional-police system and the general conditions of their detentions.
4. Intervening directly in matters concerning their health and the lack of elementary needs.

Every means and way of public projection and information will be used.

A few words and pictures from the International Week of Solidarity for Anarchist Prisoners (Czech Republic)

Monday, September 8th, 2014

uprava I

Last week was the International Week of Anarchist Prisoners. Dozens of events from South America to the Far East. The anarchist collectives around the world in various ways tried to raise awareness of imprisoned comrades and fellow soldiers. And we, along with other groups and individuals supporting the Anarchist Black Cross tried to highlight this issue. And not only that. We have tried to express solidarity to our imprisoned friends and comrades with the intensification of correspondence (letters and sending packages). We put up hundreds of flyers and stickers. Held a public screening of a film about the fate of Sacco and Vanzetti, upgrading in cities, in prisons, courthouses and even a police station. In Ústí nad Labem, according to a communiqué signed by the group “Proletarian Solidarity” ‘a police car was damaged as symbolic support to imprisoned anarchists in the world’. Although the last week in August is unfortunately not optimal for broader mobilization, perhaps the International Week of Anarchist Prisoners served its purpose. It recalled the need for solidarity not only for imprisoned comrades and friends, but throughout the movement as such. (more…)

Belgrade: Banner-drop for the week of global solidarity with anarchist prisoners (Serbia)

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

As an act of solidarity with anarchist prisoners, an informal group of anarchists dropped a banner which read: “Against the system of domination and subordination. Against prisons and the society that imprisons.” The banner was dropped from an overpass at the highway under which prisoners are frequently transported, which is located near the Central Prison in Belgrade.

A few words related to the call for a week of actions in solidarity with anarchist prisoners / Poche parole legate alla chiamata ad una settimana di azioni in solidarietà coi prigionieri anarchici (Grecia)

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

NB: English version here on Contra-Info.

Ogni Società che voi costruirete avrà i suoi margini e sui margini di ogni Società si aggireranno i vagabondi eroici e scapigliati, dai pensieri vergini e selvaggi che solo sanno vivere preparando sempre nuove e formidabili esplosioni ribelli!
Renzo Novatore

Scriviamo questo testo per tutti gli anarchici e i ribelli, dentro e fuori le mura del carcere in tutto il mondo, in risposta alla chiamata internazionale ad una settimana di azioni per i prigionieri anarchici (23-30 agosto). Una coordinazione di azioni di questo tipo è necessaria, soprattutto a livello internazionale, dato che sollecita indivudui e collettivi ad agire nel modo che sentono, e ad esprimere e diffondere la guerra di liberazione anarchica. Comunque sia, non dovremmo dipendere solo da queste chiamate per far sentire le nostre voci e mostrare le nostre azioni. Perciò, dando per scontato che siamo una guerra infuriata, e avendo scelto questa posizione, ci confrontiamo con un nemico che possiede ogni mezzo per batterci in qualsiasi momento dell’attacco. Eserciti, sbirri, tecnologie di controllo, sorveglianza avanzata, stoccaggio del dna e impronte digitali, i media, e molte altre istituzioni e menti costituiscono il dominio verso il quale noi siamo ostili. In questa guerra, l’unica certezza è che avremo prigionieri, o anche vittime, e ciò è il punto sul quale la verifica della stessa battaglia mente. (more…)

Security service starts to empty Domokos prison in order to turn it into a Guantanamo (Greece)

Monday, September 1st, 2014

via actforfree:

As of last Monday 25/8/14, the security service started to empty Domokos prison, in order for it to be transformed into a ‘C’ type hellhole, according to the fascist law 4274/2014. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday they transferred about 100 prisoners to other prisons around the country!

As soon as we got the information that the emptying procedure started in Domokos we found the decision of the Ministry of Justice dated August 1st 2014, which orders the “transformation of Domokos Correctional Facility from type B to type C prison”.
This procedure is suppose to be completed within two months after the fascist law is published.

According to safe sources, the whole procedure of evacuating Domokos prison and transferring all prisoners intended for type C prisons (first in line are the prisoners sentenced for armed revolutionary action), is supposed to be done by the end of September. This fascist law says that the prisoners will be transferred to C type prisons within 10 days from the publication of the internal law. It is not a coincidence that they are emptying Domokos in such a fast pace (30 to 40 prisoners a day).

FREEDOM TO ALL THOSE IN CELLS


COMRADES FROM ACT FOR FREEDOM NOW!

-

via actforfree:

Lo scorso lunedì 25/8/14, il servizio di sicurezza ha cominciato a
svuotare la prigione di Domokos per poterla trasformare in un carcere di
tipo C, conformemente alla legge fascista 4274/2014. Lunedì, martedì e
mercoledì hanno trasferito circa 1000 prigionieri in altre prigioni
della nazione.

Appena ricevuta l’informazione della procedura di svuotamento di
Domokos, abbiamo reperito la decisione del ministro della giustizia
datata primo agosto 2014, che ordina la “trasformazione della Struttura
Correzionale di Domokos da una prigione di tipo B a una di tipo C”.
Questa procedura dovrebbe completarsi in due mesi dalla pubblicazione
della legge fascista.

Secondo fonti sicure, l’intero processo di evacuazione del carcere di
Domokos e il trasferimento di tutti prigionieri destinati al carcere di
tipo C (in prima linea i prigionieri sentenziati per azione armata
rivoluzionaria), dovrebbero terminare alla fine di settembre. Questa
legge fascista recita che i detenuti verranno trasferiti al tipo C entro
10 giorni dalla publicazione della legge interna. Non è una coincidenza
che stanno svuotando Domokos ad un ritmo così veloce (da 30 a 40
prigionieri al giorno).

LIBERTA’ A TUTTI I PRIGIONIERI

ABC Hurricane: New group of the Black Cross forms in Week of Solidarity for Anarchist Prisoners (UK)

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

From ABC Hurricane:

Warm greetings,

We are ABC Hurricane, a UK-based Anarchist Black Cross group that supports prisoners in struggle.

We have named the group ABC Hurricane in order to be non-location specific and to be accessible to anyone wherever they are in the UK or internationally. We see ourselves as part of the Anarchist Black Cross and part of the Black International of Anarchists of Praxis.

We formed during the Anarchist Prisoners’ Global Week of Solidarity this August 2014. This week highlights the different cases of our comrades across the world – some we know about, some we didn’t know about until this week. This is a time for our prisoners, ABC, solidarity, counter-info and action groups to organise, expressing practical solidarity and the desire to see the destruction of all prisons. We believe that solidarity is not just fund-raising or charity networking but should also have an element of action and attack against the existent.

All the people in the group have been involved in prisoner solidarity work for many years but want to push the trajectory of our group beyond that. We don’t see any difference between those social and political prisoners in struggle – almost all prisoners are political in this situation. We are for the class struggle but also for the destruction of the prisons and civilisation.

Over the next few weeks we will be creating and putting out images, publications and text, and we look forward to communication with rebels inside and outside the walls, and anyone that wishes to support our prisoners.

Screening of “Sacco & Vanzetti” film in Riga (Latvia) + Sacco and Vanzetti… a 87 años de su ejecución, con la memoria anárquica intacta ($hile)

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

From Riga, Latvia:

On August 24, 19:00, in the bar ‘Chomsky’ a film about “Sacco and Vanzetti” from 1971 was shown. After there was a discussion of the film and a talk about the activities of the Anarchist Black Cross and anarchist prisoners of Russia and Belarus.

-

This is a text written by Biblioteca Antiautoritaria Sacco y Vanzetti in Santiago, $hile, on the 87th year since the murder of Sacco and Vanzetti by the American State:

SACCO Y VANZETTI… a 87 años de su ejecución, con la memoria anárquica
intacta

“El enemigo nos quiere muertos y nos tendrá muertos para defender el
privilegio y la tiranía, para humillaros, para acobardaos, para
venceros, destruiros y encadenar los pueblos al carro de su esclavitud
(…) Y este mismo enemigo, clava sus inmundos tentáculos en la carne de
todos los pueblos de la Tierra, prepara el más grande militarismo del
mundo y se apresta a esclavizar la entera humanidad. Hay que aplastarle
la cabeza..”.

Bartolomeo Vanzetti

El 23 de Agosto de 1927 en Massachusetts, EEUU, son ejecutados en la
silla eléctrica Niccola Sacco y Bartolomeo Vanzetti, dos inmigrantes
italianos y reconocidos anarquistas. Tras 7 años de juicio, son
encontrados culpables de robo con homicidio y se los condena a morir
electrocutados.

El caso de los compañeros Sacco y Vanzetti es quizá el que ha tenido
mayor repercusión internacional, es sin duda un caso emblemático por
todo el proceso judicial que los mantuvo en prisión y que generó
reacciones a nivel mundial. (more…)

New bail and legal fund established for those arrested in anti-police riots in Ferguson (USA)

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Via antistatesl:

New Bail and Legal Fund Established

A new bail and legal fund has been established to support the people who have been arrested during the anti-police demonstrations in Ferguson, Mo. The other account had to be closed for tax reasons, but a new account has been quickly set up. Please spread the word widely and help us get some money together to get these people out.

Also, we are looking for information on who was arrested so we can get them legal support and bail them out if necessary. If you have a friend or family member who was arrested, please email us their name at:

antistatestl [at] riseup [dot] net

All funds collected will be used to support those arrested during the demonstrations–their bail money, fines, legal funds, or other related expenses. In the unlikely event that there are additional funds, they will be used to support people resisting police repression and police violence in the future.

Update about Gabriel Pombo da Silva – EN/ES/FR/GR (Spain)

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

On Wednesday, August 6, 2014, comrade Gabriel Pombo Da Silva finally came out of provisional isolation (which had been set in A Lama on June 17) to be transferred to the prison of Topas (Salamanca). He arrived there on Friday, August 8th and is now in a single cell.

However, we were notified again about the intervention on all communications (written, telephone and visits). The prison administration also has an arsenal of measures to punish, abuse and get revenge on those, like Gabriel, Francisco, Monica and many others, who refuse to lower their heads and submit.

These include repeated attempts to break relationships and the difficult (and for some impossible) contact with the outside, or by separating him from his friends by imposing wing transfers- just like that which happened only 3 days after his arrival in Topas prison. (more…)

Revolutionary Struggle: Nikos Maziotis claims political responsibility for Bank of Greece bombing (Greece)

Friday, August 15th, 2014

News-report from mainstream media:

The detained urban guerrilla Nikos Maziotis recently spoke to Efimerida ton Syntakton and – as a member of the Revolutionary Struggle – has accepted the political responsibility of the bombing of the Bank of Greece in April, noting that the IMF’s offices in Greece are hosted there.

Maziotis also sent a message to his fugitive partner Panagiota Roupa, telling her to “stay free and raise our son” and that “despite the casualties, the struggle continues”. In his interview his expresses his sorrow for the injury of innocent bystanders during the shoot-out in Monastiraki, but noted that the injuries came from ricochets, rather than direct shots.

Finally, the stressed that “anyone who thinks that they are a fighter or an anarchist and believes that they must act within the limits of lawfulness, should better join a legal parliamentary party, to become a part of the system and not pretend to be a fighter or rebel or anarchist”.

Update on CCF’s trial – Sessions 99th-109th (Greece)

Monday, August 11th, 2014

Inter Arma received and translated:

109th session

In this session the testimonies of the defence witnesses called by some defendants who are not members of CCF, were scheduled to begin. Before the beginning of this procedure, the comrades of CCF read a statement concerning their refusal to call defence witnesses.

Here are some fragments of that statement:

” … this trial is reaching its end. At this point, your legal culture gives us the right to call defence witnesses. But the logic of calling some other individual to defend you, seems crippled and victim-like to us.

We are aware of the fact that, a parade of defence witnesses takes place in many trials against anarchists and that one can even find representatives of the Left and university professors among those people.

Quite often, defence witnesses in full cooperation with the defendants build a humanitarian profile for the ones prosecuted, presenting them to be “good people”, “intelligent students” and “pure ideologues” in order to win the judges’ sympathy. This whole scenery seems to us more like a psychotherapy session than an aggressive stance against the judges. (…) So, we are neither “good people” nor “intelligent students” and “pure ideologues” who are prosecuted for their ideals. We are anarcho-nihilists prosecuted because they put their ideas into practice without ever regretting anything.

This is why we refuse to be victims that need defence. For us the best “defence” is the continuing actions of the illegal cell of CCF and the network of FAI/IRF.

So, we don’t look for defence witnesses but for accomplices to commit the “crime” of anarchy (…)”.

After the reading of the statement, the lawyers of the rest of the defendants referred to some trial documents. A document was filed which proved that A.Mitrousias takes classes of the Open University while in prison, while there was a reference to the fact that G.Karagiannidis attended a graduation ceremony in order to receive his degree, while the comrades of CCF were in clandestinity.

The testimony of the first defence witness was interrupted because of the tension created in the courtroom.

108th session

The reading of additional documents continued.

107th session

The reading of additional documents continued.

106th session

The reading of additional documents continued.

105th session

The reading of the reasoning of the condemnatory decision of the previous trial continued.

104th session

The reading of the reasoning of the condemnatory decision of the previous trial continued.

103d session

The reading of the reasoning of the condemnatory decision of the previous trial continued. Among other things, it was stated that CCF’s attacks had a negative impact on the country’s image abroad and that this resulted in scaring foreign financial investors.

102nd session

The basic reasoning of the condemnatory decision of the previous trials against CCF for the Chalandri case was read (we remind you that the comrades have already been sentenced to more than 200 years of imprisonment…). Indicative of the trial’s atmosphere is the fact that it was stated that the warning telephone call before the explosion in the Ministry of Macedonia and Thrace was made to “terrorize” civilians.

101st session

The session was postponed due to the absence of one of the judges.

100th session

The reading of some additional documents of the Counter-terrorism agency was completed and the date for the next session, where the testimonies of the defence witnesses would begin, was scheduled. The comrades of CCF stated that they will not call defence witnesses since they stand against the logic of being defended by other individuals in an enemy territory like a courtroom. “We are not here to have defence witnesses calling us “good people” with “ideals”. We are here because we are prisoners of the state and we declare that we are everlasting enemies of the system you represent…”

99th session

In this session the question of whether the defendants who haven’t claimed responsibility for participating in CCF, are indeed members of the group or not, was raised once again.

The comrades of CCF repeated in every possible way that it goes without saying that whoever doesn’t claim responsibility for being a member of CCF cannot obviously be their comrade or a member of the group.

That was the first time when the judge and the prosecutor referred to “secondary members”, who are not part of the group’s nucleus and don’t make decisions, wanting to create suspicions for the rest of the defendants. The comrades of CCF clearly stated that there are neither secondary or main members nor a decision making nucleus. CCF is a not group that was created on the basis of rules and hierarchy but a living experiment of human relations, far away from leaders and followers. Their exact statement was the following: “CCF is a conspiracy of friendship and comradeship among anarchists who feel alive only in their actions.” While they, once again, affirmed the deep political and ethical differences, which separate them from the rest of the defendants.

Sessions with defence witnesses

The testimonies of the defence witnesses called by A. Mitrousias, K. Sakkas, G. Karagiannidis and S. Antoniou, who have nothing to do with CCF, took place in the following sessions.

Among the defence witnesses were personal friends of the defendants, their parents, former employers, university professors, DNA scientists as well as communists and anarchists.

All of them testified that those defendants have nothing to do with CCF and its actions. The political defence witnesses testified about things like the massive movement, the police frame-ups against anarchists, the oppression of Capital, the social struggles, while the judges were often asking about the difference between an anarchist and an anti-authoritarian (?). The personal defence witnesses testified about the character of the defendants and their relationship with them, in their working area (i.e. there was a testimony by the former employer of G. Karagiannidis) and in other social relations (from the testimonies it became known that A. Mitrousias had decided to surrender himself on the 8th of December in order to go on trial during the first trial against CCF).

In between those sessions the nationwide hunger strike of the prisoners in Greece against the bill for the creation of maximum security prisons took place. The comrades of CCF and the rest of the defendants interrupted the trial until the end of the hunger strike.

Letter from Gülaferit Ünsal, who was on hunger-strike in solidarity with prisoners in Greece (Germany)

Sunday, August 10th, 2014

via RHI-SRI:

Hi there,

I did a three-day hunger strike (18-20 July.) In solidarity with the Greek prisoners. Isolation is torture. I myself am in an isolation cell for 2 years and 3 months. I understand very well the situation of the Greek. prisoners. I was also in a Greek jail. I know the conditions of the Greek Prisoners.
You know the F-type prison system in Turkey. 7-year-old death fast against isolation cells in Turkey, against the F-type prisons. 122 people have died in the resistance against the F-type prisons.
I do not want a new massacre somewhere in this world. But, imperialism and fascism always want a new massacre in the world. Isolation is a capitalist policy. It is not only related to the prisons. It deprives a brain. 7 years Death Fast has shown the whole world that this is impossible. Everyone should show resistance to the isolation. Anyone can do it. It is possible!
Then yet another development. Murderer Israel has bombed Gaza. A massacre in Palestine! (more…)
