One banner read:
‘Happy Birthday to Anarchist Prisoner Emma Sheppard! – Down with all cages!’
We know what a boot looks like,
When seen from underneath,
We know the philosophy of boots…
Soon we will invade like weeds,
Everywhere but slowly;
The captive plants will rebel
With us, fences will topple,
Brick walls will ripple and fall
There will be no more boots
Meanwhile we eat dirt
and sleep; we are waiting
under your feet.
When we say attack
You will hear nothing
- Margaret Atwood “Song of the Worms”
The other banner:
‘Capital is ‘Green’ as Nuclear is ‘Safe’ – Against Industrial Society – Hands Off
Billy, Silvia, and Costas.’
In reference to 3 anarchist ecologists who the Italian state want to re-try over an
unsuccessful action in Switzerland, and the capitalist marketing ploy of Bristol as
the European Green Capital.
Both banners were hung over the M32 during the morning rush hour on Thursday 30th April.
Recently word has reached us of international police collaboration in the UK
targeting action or publication groups allegedly connected to a thwarted plan to
liberate guerrillas from dungeons in Greece. Solidarity to the underground who, from
Scotland to Bristol to London, head out with hackles raised and spray-paint, rocks
or slingshots in their pockets and blazing hearts never extinguished. A wink of
complicity for those that defiantly acted for freedom and who got away.
State repression is a hurdle for any liberation tendency. Here in England
anarchists, outlaws, and would be fighters with the Kurdish resistance to ISIS (see
the case of Shilan Ozcelik) can all attest to that. We call attention to the common
thirst for freedom in all these cases. May struggle continue in every form that is
necessary. Regardless of the outcome of the election pantomime we are ungovernable.

[…] When we started the hunger strike, we knew it would be an uphill struggle that would stretch us to our limits. And it’s true that some of us, after 40 days of tough struggle, run the risk of developing serious health problems. Nevertheless, we’re not going to concede any ground to anyone who’s taking advantage of the government’s strategy in their attempt to wear us down and annul the effectiveness of our struggle. Therefore, we reiterate that we continue the hunger strike until the fulfillment of our demands, despite the visible risks to our health. We owe it to all the comrades who’ve felt we are giving a joint struggle against the state of exception, but above all we owe it to our own selves and to the means of fight that we have chosen. We invite all comrades to reflect on the cruciality of the situation (four comrades have been on strike for more than 40 days) and turn Every Day of Hunger Strike into A Day of Action.
Every fight exhausts its potential only when we give up, and this fight has neither exhausted its potential nor completed its cycle.*
PS.1: Yesterday [April 10th], our comrade Tasos Theofilou stopped the strike as well. We walked together this far, and remain united in our common struggle. Tasos, we wish you a good recovery.
PS.2: We send our solidarity to the revolutionaries from Turkey [incarcerated in Greek prisons], who stand beside us in this battle. We wish Giorgos Inglessis [who suspended hunger strike] a good recovery.**
PS.3: Solidarity with the migrants who went on hunger strike at the concentration camp in Paranesti, near Drama.***
Until the End – Until Victory
Not One Step Back
Network of Imprisoned Fighters
* A reference to the opinion expressed by imprisoned comrade Nikos Maziotis.
** According to our information so far, the prisoners who remain on hunger strike are eight anarchists of the Network of Imprisoned Fighters (DAK), Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, Antonis Stamboulos, Argyris Ntalios, Dimitris Politis, Fivos Harisis, Giorgos Karagiannidis, Grigoris Sarafoudis and Yannis Michailidis, as well as communists from Turkey & Kurdistan incarcerated in Greek prisons.
*** On April 10th, the No Lager Assembly in Thessaloniki, having established ties of solidarity and constant communication with the imprisoned migrants, reported that only one migrant is still on hunger strike in Paranesti camp, also noting that comrades from various collectives in Thessaloniki, Drama, Patras, Athens and other places supported and publicised the strike.

Victory to the prisoners’ struggle and their demands!
Strength and Freedom for the CCF and their relatives!

DAK [Network of Imprisoned Fighters] – 35 Days of Struggle – Victory to the Hunger Strikers
Comrades inside the prison of Larissa raised a banner in solidarity with the hunger strikers who request the abolition of the “hoodie law”, abolition of type C prisons, abolition of antiterrorist laws, delimitation in the use and analysis of DNA, and the release of polytrauma patient Savvas Xiros.
Victory to the struggle of the hunger strikers

News from Poland:
Residents of the Od:zysk Squat send warm regards and words of support for our comrades from the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire who carry on the hunger strike. Your struggle against the capitalist state regime is exemplary. It exposes its totalitarian nature. When threatened, the so-called „democratic” state takes off its liberal mask and moves towards methods such as torture and repression against the militants family members who are not directly involved in the struggle.
We believe that the strike will soon end up with success.
LET ALL PRISONS AND PRISONS AND POLICE STATIONS BURN!
SOLIDARITY IS OUR WEAPON!

Lienzo en solidaridad con Carlos Gutiérrez Quiduleo.
Lunes 16 de Febrero, Temuco 2015.
El día 28 de noviembre del 2013 es detenido en la región de La Araucanía el compañero Carlos Gutiérrez Quiduleo, tras permanecer en la clandestinidad por 6 años luego de ser implicado en el Caso Security. Juicio que culminó hace unos meses con condenas altísimas sobre los compañeros Freddy Fuentevilla, Marcelo Villarroel y Juan Aliste.
Carlos esta arriesgando una pena de 30 años de prisión, siendo formalizado por 3 asaltos bancarios, más una causa por tenencia ilegal de arma de fuego y una agresión a un carcelero al interior de la Sección de Máxima Seguridad (CAS) el año pasado. (more…)

Inter Arma received from Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras:
After one year of detention in San Miguel prison, anarchist comrade Tamara Sol started to face the trial in which power aims to annihilate her. Tamara is accused of shooting a bank guard in January 2014, just days after a bank guard killed comrade Sebastian Oversluij in an attempted bank robbery, in a different bank branch.
In November 2014, a brief preparation for trial against Tamara was performed, which finally started on this January 23. Tamara is facing a democratic inquisition that wants to sentence her to several years in prison, with charges of attempted murder and accomplished simple theft. (more…)

secuestradxs por el Estado Español, nuestras complicidades se extienden

La complicidad entre el Estado chileno y Español se hizo evidente en el
coqueteo publico entre sus organismos represivos, materializándose con el
encuentro entre sus autoridades con diversos viajes entre ambos
territorios durante los últimos meses.
La operación Pandora no es simplemente la re-edición ciega de un modelo
represivo, sino que además incluye un movimiento de avanzada, contemplando
la falsificación de la realidad al apuntar a los GAC como una célula de

fachadas de una “organización terrorista”). Pero además el salto represivo
esta dado en la fantasiosa trampa de acusar a lxs compañerxs de conformar
una “organización terrorista” que no ha cometido ningún ataque conocido.

On October 1st, the anarchist Antonis Stamboulos is arrested by the counter-terrorist agency accused of terrorist actions. His arrest was hyped from the media, in a furious journalistic climate, based on findings of guilt and imaginary scenarios as signed directly from the 12th floor of the police headquarters.
At the same time, under coordinated counter-terrorism investigations in Athens and Thessaloniki, five people were arrested, the two of whom were detained and driven to Korydallos prison, on charges of aggravated possession of weapons and possession of explosives. The arrested Panagiotis Michalakoglou claimed responsibility for the weapons found in his house, while M.B. has nothing to do with the case.
Antonis Stamboulos, from the first time of his arrest, refused to have any kind of communication with the cops, giving a struggle of dignity continuing till today, since he is on a hunger and thirst strike in Larissa prison from October 6th [Antonis ended the thirst strike October 11th, and issued a new letter explaining his position], demanding his transfer to Korydallos prison, so as he can be close to his familiars.

A group of anarchists in Hamburg dropped a banner in solidarity with Mónica and Francisco, imprisoned in Spain. The banner read “Freedom for Mónica and Francisco. Pull down the prisons.” This is our small contribution to the week of solidarity with anarchist prisoners.
Freedom for Mónica and Francisco, freedom for all anarchist prisoners. Until all are free!

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.

Saímos das nossas casas para interromper um pouco com a indiferença normalizadora neste clima nojento de final da copa do mundo. Colocamos uma faixa na Avenida Borges de Medeiros, na mesma hora em que os torcedores caminharem para o ultimo festejo. Um festejo, o lembramos, banhado no sangue dxs assessinadxs, desaparecidxs e torturadxs “da copa”.
Enquanto xs cúmplices dessa desgraça caminham “felizes” pelas ruas, lembramos esses dias como dias de genocídio do “povo” palestino. (more…)

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;
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!

Korydallos Prison: Banner-drop by anarchist prisoners of the 4th wing in solidarity with hungerstrikers in the hospital section (Greece)
Wednesday, March 5th, 2014
“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!
