Seattle: Banner drop in solidarity with Tacoma, WA hunger strike (USA)

Sunday, April 13th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

On Friday April 11th, three banners were dropped from different highway overpasses in Seattle. This is in solidarity with the hunger strikers held in the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, WA, a facility that currently imprisons and deports immigrants from around the United States. This is also for those on hunger strike in a similar facility in Texas, also run by GEO.

The banners read as follows:

Destroy Borders, Chinga la Migra;
Solidarity with NWDC Hunger Strikers;

and
Set Fire to ICE, Solidarity with the Hunger Strikers.

With this small act we send strength to those who refuse the authority of their jailers. We send the message that they are not alone and their struggle is not isolated.

Death to the Jailers,
Fire to the Prisons!

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

Greek prisons:
“An act dedicated to our neighbours who are living in hell; from inside Koridallos”
Since February 17th, 2014, nearly 180 patient inmates at Aghios Pavlos ‘hospital’ in Koridallos prison are on strike, refusing meals and medications, to protest the horrific conditions.

Anarchists in the fourth wing of Koridallos men’s prison hung a banner out from the windows of ‘their’ cells, which are located directly opposite the prison hospital. The banner reads: “Strength, you guys! Break the sickening status quo you are experiencing (A)”. Hospital patients saw the banner and liked it a lot.

Strength to the prisoners’ struggle in Koridallos prison hospital!

Toronto: Banner drop in solidarity with Grand Jury refusers (Canada, USA)

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

325 receives and transmits:

We have decided to celebrate Black (banner) Friday in Toronto with this action of solidarity with our brothers and sisters currently being repressed by the state, as punishment for non-collaboration with the mechanisms of “justice”. Through our actions we show our comrades will not be forgotten, and will return stronger knowing their resistance had motivated others to action around the globe. You may target us, but we shall continue the struggle, and will return each time with a deeper understanding of, and conviction in, the inadequacies of the state and the capitalist framework, you thrust upon us.

Fire to the prisons.

Sydney: Banners dropped in solidarity with Toronto G20 Prisoners (Australia, Canada)

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

On August 5 some anarchists dropped two banners from the Carhill expressway bridge outside the Canadian consulate. The action was in response to a call out for August 5 to be a day of solidarity actions for Kelly Rose Pflug-Back, an anarchist hostage of the Canadian state, recently sentenced to 15 months in prison for her resistance to the Toronto G20 in 2010.

The banners read:

‘EVERY PRISONER IS A POLITICAL PRISONER’ &
‘FREE KELLY ROSE PFLUG-BACK’

A couple hundred leaflets condemning the repression and celebrating the resistance in the occupied territory of Canada were also thrown from the bridge. Our small act was an expression of our solidarity with Kelly and all the rebels who rejected the passive logic of legal protest and made a concrete stand against the annual meeting of the managers of global capital.

Prisoners to the streets!

Banner Drop on the Old Fortress in Kerkira (Corfu)

Wednesday, May 18th, 2011

It says: “WE HAVE WAR, WE HAVE A DICTATORSHIP, WAR AGAINST THE DICTATORSHIP”

… which was accompanied by mainly anti-cop and anti-fascist chants. Us companions from our north-western corner try to give a continuity to the mobilizations of the last few days against the junta. This is how we should call it from now on because it is a junta.

Do not forget that we clashed for righteousness and our life that is being robbed.
Do not forget that December ’08 was a revolt because it was decentralized.

AHEAD COMRADES FOR NEW DECEMBERS WITHOUT DEAD GRIGOROPOULOS.
