Woman imprisoned for sex without a condom

In Germany in 2014 a 29 year old woman was sentenced to four years in prison for having sex without using a condom. Because the court deemed her a threat to public safety, Preventative Detention – indefinite imprisonment – was added.

The story:

Jaqueline was a young woman who was in love with life, she hung around the surroundings of a biker club and had a few partners. Years before she had caught HIV, but was taking medication for it and therefore hadn’t become ill. (more…)

Audio documentation: Undercover for State and Capital (A-Radio)

Thursday, November 5th, 2015

Dear all,

As Anarchist Radio Berlin we had the opportunity of documenting a presentation organized by the magazine Cilip in Berlin with the title “Undercover for State and Capital”. Therein, Kate Wilson talked about her relationship to [undercover cop] Mark Kennedy and Eveline Lubbes about the spying of multinationals and the Undercover Research Group. Unfortunately, due to technical problems, we could only record the first part of the presentation where Kate talks about her experiences.
The presentation was held in English.

Hambach Forest – 3 People in Jail (Germany)

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

Updated 2 Nov 2015



Newest information about the Hambi-prisoners

Yesterday evening we got new information about the conditions and developments concerning the 3 prisoners from the forest occupation, who are at the moment imprisoned in Aachen and Cologne. We want to give an update to everyone interested and call out for solidarity. At the moment, there are no public names for the two persons arrested last Thursday, so they’ll be called A. and B. in this text.

All 3 prisoners suffer from injuries they had inflicted on them during their arrest. How the situation exactly went and if they were hurt by police or security, we don’t know. Mr. Blue, who is imprisoned for several weeks now, can’t hear well out of his left ear, and he can’t feel two fingers on his left hand. Since he is in prison, he is not been allowed to see the prison-doctor. (more…)

8-11 Oct: No Prison – No State! Anti-Authoritarian days against the prison society in Hamburg (Germany)

Sunday, September 27th, 2015

No Prison – No State!
Anti-Authoritarian days against the prison society in Hamburg
8th-11th October, 2015

Whilst we are working, consuming, functioning… they hold the cage we`re
living in!

Life under democratic regimes are dominated by a continuous process of
adaption to the problems and developments of the system.

The state permanently reflects and improves itself, trying to keep up a
civic discourse through offering so-called alternatives and reforms.

This is supposed to destroy the basis for unrest and resistance and to
many it legitimates strong repressive answers to such rebellious

This phenomenon can be found in almost every aspect of modern life. The
illusion of participation is one of their strongest weapons, and
together with the ongoing expansion of so called rights, democracy is
developing towards a system, in which the ruled are actively
participating in their own oppression.

Solidarity with Dariusz ‘Jus’ Brzeski – Hambach Forest Struggle (Germany)

Monday, September 7th, 2015

6 weeks ago our comrade Jus got taken from us at the eviction of Remi’s Tower, a huge barricade built in honour of Remi Fraisse, who got killed by the freakin cops.

The first 3 weeks Jus was on hunger strike and as a reaction to that the cops told him he did not have a lawyer registered (which he had) and put him in a isolation cell, where it is hard to sleep because they check every 15 minutes if you are not dead yet by turning the lights on and off. All the letters he receives now get checked and it takes about 2 to 4 weeks for them to get to him. He is in prison for 6 weeks and only had two visits. It is extremely difficult to arrange visits, because there has to be an interpreter at all times, and they want audio-visual surveillance. Also his phone privileges are restricted to only his lawyer (even though everyone else can call whoever the fuck they want) and even about that they are being assholes. (more…)

Berlin: Policecars attacked with stones and stinking bombs in solidarity with Bumzen raids (Germany, Denmark)

Wednesday, August 19th, 2015

Berlin, 14th august 2015

From Berlin to Kopenhagen – Greetings from the rebellious Rigaer str. to Nørrebro

We also received the information about the terror of the cops against your house project Bumzen and three other flats. The reason for the police attack was a „reclaim the streets“ action, where stones and molotow cocktails has been thrown against pics and a bank was smashed. We really like that you took back the streets and in which way you did it was amazing.

They forced you to give your DNA, so we gave also some orders to our specialists of the laboratory.

In a act of solidarity, two cop cars lost again in „Rigaer Roulette“. We attacked the cops with stones and stinking bombs and we get informed by the press that the police sent some samples to the laboratory. We are really looking forward to the result of the analysis, if the pigs will publish it.

They also wrote that 20 stones hit the pig cars. Be sure, that there is no doubt that as long your colleagues are getting on the nerves of our friends or you by our own are wandering around our beautiful streets, as long it will be dangerous for you!

Rigaer roulette is going to the next round

Bumzen stays!

Solidarity with all anti-authoritarian struggles

August 23-30 International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners blog, ‘tillallarefree.noblogs.org

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

About some car fires in recent weeks in Berlin… (Germany)

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

For Mónica Caballero, Nikos Romanos, Francisco Solar, Nikos Maziotis and all upright prisoners, for those who burn the vehicles of the prison-construction company Vinci in the streets of Paris and have celebrated the 14 July national holiday in their own way, for the untouchables that throw once again μολότοφ [Molotov cocktails] and stones through the streets of Athens and not let themselves be deceived by Syriza… and for ourselves.

That’s why we torched a vehicle of the surveillance company Deutsche Telekom in the Wedding district of Berlin on 11/6/2015; we burned a van of the armaments company Siemens on the Stralau half-island on 13/7/2015; and caused a vehicle of the security company WISAG in the Paul-Junius-Straße to burst into flames on 17/7/2015.

Fortress Europe will collapse only when the storm on the outer boundaries connects itself with the local, inner subversions, and these struggles correlate with each other.

Let’s break the law! – Solidarity with the accused of the “Breite Strasse” case in Hamburg (Germany)

Sunday, August 2nd, 2015

On the 27.08.2014 a house was squatted in Breite Straße in Hamburg. When the cops came to evict they were heavily attacked by the squatters with fireworks, colour, and a lot of other projectiles.
Later people got arrested outside the house accused of participation in the
action. Some of them where in custody for some months but are now out. End of august 2015 the courtcase will start against 6 persons. The accusations are heavy, some of them are accused with attempted homicide because of the
attacks on cops.

Lets show solidarity with the action because it was an attack against this
oppressive normality!

Rigaerstrasse: 25 years of self-organisation and resistance – Street Party 6-12 July – Berlin (Germany)

Monday, June 29th, 2015

Police will attack next week, because….

Signs against the gentrification: The Rigaer street party

Dear groups, individuals and collectives „Es ist besser unsere Jugend besetzt leere Häuser als fremde Länder“ (In our youth it is better to squat empty houses than foreign countries).

Under this motto some young people started squatting houses in Rigaestrasse and in the rest of Friedrichshain in the early 90’s, creating places where they could collectively live, organize and resist.

Particularly in the following years many of the squatted houses were evicted or pressed to sign contracts as a result of the so called „Berliner Line“ which aimed to push people into a capitalistic (consumptive) lifestyle. Even the contracts didn’t prevent houses getting evicted in many cases. Nevertheless a few of the originally squatted houses persist as active spaces.

Discounting these projects that have remained, with somewhat affordable rent – the rest of our Kiez has undergone drastic changes in rent costs and real estate prices that are obvious to see / hard to ignore, with formidable and unaffordable prices for flats. (more…)

‘Comparing Evils’ – Chapter 4 of the book ‘Radical Peace: People Refusing War’ By William T. Hathaway (USA, Germany, Afghanistan)

Comparing Evils

Chapter 4 of the book
RADICAL PEACE: People Refusing War
By William T. Hathaway

Jamal Khan is an Afghan journalist who fled his country because of Taliban persecution and now lives in Germany. We met in the apartment of a mutual friend from the Deutsche Friedensgesellschaft, the German Peace Society. Jamal is mid-forties, thin, with curly brown hair, tan skin, and clear green eyes that take everything in.

Hathaway: “Do you miss your country?”

Khan: “Only when I’m drunk, which isn’t very often. Then I get stupidly sentimental.

“Actually I’m not a big fan of any country. They’re all inhuman. They exist mainly as platforms for power. The rulers promote cultural rituals that make people identify with the place they live. Then they manipulate the people’s patriotic emotions to get them to fight wars for them. We cling to the identification because it gives us a sense of security, of belonging to something greater. But the insecurity we feel is actually generated by the power the rulers have over us.

‘SAMs for Uncle Sam’ – Chapter 3 of the book ‘Radical Peace: People Refusing War’ By William T. Hathaway (USA, Germany, Iraq)

SAMs for Uncle Sam

Chapter 3 of the book
RADICAL PEACE: People Refusing War
By William T. Hathaway

Merna al-Marjan is a young Iraqi who is currently in Germany studying European history. We talked in her dormitory room, a spartan but functional cubicle in a building that embodies a hopeful change in European history: it was constructed in the nineteenth century as an army barracks but now houses university students. That’s progress.

On Merna’s small table sat a pot of peppermint tea and a plate of baklava. She’s short and plump with smooth skin the color of clover honey and deep anthracite eyes; she was wearing a long skirt of light cotton, a long-sleeved blouse, and a green paisley headscarf.

Hathaway: “Headscarves have become a controversial item of clothing here in Germany.”

Al-Marjan: “Yes, you can’t teach in the schools if you wear one. It’s OK for a teacher to wear a Christian crucifix but not a Muslim headscarf. I didn’t wear a hijab in Iraq, but I’ve started doing it here to show solidarity. It’s ridiculous to ban an article of clothing, a simple piece of cloth. What sort of freedom is that?

Report about the hungerstrike of Sadi Özpolat and Gülaferit Unsal (Germany)

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

Here in Germany two communist prisoners from Turkey, who had been sentenced according to the “antiterror-paragraph §129b”, achieved victories by means of long hungerstrikes: Sadi Özpolat starved 43 days and Gülaferit Ünsal 54 days. They fought against censorship, prison clothing and intimidation. They didn’t fight in the prison alone. Together with Gülaferit 6 other prisoners starved as well in solidarity.

Taken from one of our speeches (“Network of all political prisoners”, Hamburg) in front of the Berlin prison, where Gülaferit is jailed: (29.5.2015)

“This is a draconic assault to all prisoners. More than 100 yearly commit suicide, living under similar conditions as Gülaferit, without any hope and unwilling to vegetate isolated anymore.”

9 political prisoners of armed groups like RAF, who organised collective resistance against such conditions, didn’t survive in prison in the seventies and eighties.
