Reportbacks from the International Day of Solidarity with Marie Mason, Eric McDavid & all long-term anarchist prisoners

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

From june11.org:

We’re humbled by the enormous outpouring of solidarity which comrades all over the world demonstrated on June 11th this year, especially the ways in which people linked Marius [Marie] and Eric’s struggles in prison with their own struggles against environmental devastation, the prison-world and the forces of capitalist exploitation.

We’d also like to draw attention to the hunger strike currently taking place in Greek prisons, against the construction of new high security wings and entire prison for those convicted on terrorism charges (primarily anarchist and nihilist combatants). We continue to stand in complicity with comrades, near and far, who are struggling both inside and outside of prison walls against the intensification of the systems of control and oppression.

Reportbacks are below, alphabetical by city. If you participated in an event that wasn’t listed, post about it in the comments!

Asheville, NC

$500 raised for the comrades, and lots of new faces at the event/show.

Berlin, Germany
We began with a call-in from anarchist-communist prisoner Tasos Theofilou, accused of participating in a bank robbery and the murder of a taxi driver, and of being part of the Conspiracy of the Cells of Fire (which he denies). Being able to breach the prison walls in this small way, and to talk directly with Tasos, was very special. (more…)

Solidarity actions in Athens for the June 11 day for long-term anarchist prisoners (Greece)

Wednesday, June 26th, 2013

June 11th has been defined as a day of international solidarity with comrades Eric McDavid and Marie Mason and with all political prisoners who are incarcerated all over the world. Imprisoned comrades experience this situation not only due to their direct action and the transubstantiation of their words into action, but also because of their choice to be anarchists.

In the struggle for degradation and destruction of state/authoritarian complex, anarchists comrades and activists-abroad and in Greece, too-consider as an integral part of animal and earth liberation human liberation, too.

In U.S.A., the Animal Liberation Front and the Earth Liberation Front have been proclaimed by FBI as the No. 1 enemy of domestic terrorism. Eric McDavid and Marie Mason were arrested in January 2006 and September 2008 respectively,
without proof but with plenty of accusations. The State’s choice of their imprisonment was far more than random. (more…)

#J11: International Day of Solidarity with Eric McDavid, Marie Mason & Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners

Friday, April 26th, 2013

June 11th is the international day of solidarity with Eric McDavid, Marie Mason, and other longterm anarchist prisoners.

http://june11.org/

The state stole Eric McDavid and Marie Mason from us in 2006 and 2008 respectively. In the years since their arrests, repression has come to feel less like a specific event and more like an inescapable, ongoing nightmare. Sentenced to 22 years and 20 years, respectively, Marie and Eric remain in cages to this day, and know this nightmare more intimately than most.

Lately, we hear lots of talk about the end times, and total environmental collapse seems imminent. But what do these forces mean to those inside prison cells? And what do they mean for us on the outside? We are trying to save both each other and some shred of wildness on this earth. Our task is difficult, and sometimes seems impossible, because the harder we fight, the more repression we face. Every day we lose more species, more land, more friends… and this process shows no signs of slowing. How do we survive and continue to struggle in the face of this reality? (more…)

Freedom and Solidarity to Marie Mason on her 51st Birthday (USA)

Sunday, December 23rd, 2012

Marie Mason is an eco-prisoner condemned with a long prison punishment by the American regime.

Marie Mason’s 51st birthday is coming up on January 26, 2013. We are asking that folks hold events for Marie around her birthday as part of what will be an annual time to celebrate her life and keep her spirits up while she remains imprisoned.

We know that the mid-winter holidays are a busy time for everyone, but they are a sad time for the prisoners who remain inside – and everyone wants some cheer on their birthday! So we hope that folks can find time to plan a small event for Marie, such as a letter-writing or birthday party. (If time permits, we recommend that you might want to hold letter writings a week or more earlier so the cards can reach her before the 26th.) (more…)

June 11: International Day of Solidarity with Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners (USA, Worldwide)

Saturday, May 12th, 2012



UPDATED TEXT CALLOUT FOR ACTION SOLIDARITY

From june11.org:

The second anniversary of the international day of solidarity with Marie Mason, Eric McDavid, and other longterm anarchist prisoners is nearly upon us! To tell us about an event you’re planning, email june11solidarity(at)gmail.com; to learn more about the day, click “about”; to download posters, hand-outs, and zines to distribute, click “resources”; to see the ever-growing list, click “events”; to find links to support pages and articles, click “links”; for news, or to read about last year’s events and acts of solidarity, click here.

* * *

June 11th began as an international day of solidarity with long-term anarchist prisoner Jeff “Free” Luers in 2004. At the time, Jeff was serving 22+ years. Infuriated by the environmental devastation he saw occurring on a global scale, Jeff torched three SUVs at a car dealership in Eugene, Oregon [Click for info on Sadie & Exile, who torched the same dealership in solidarity]. The sentence imposed on him was meant to send a clear message to others who were angered by capitalism’s continued war on the Earth’s ecosystems – and to those who were willing to take action to put a stop to it. Jeff is, after all, not alone in his concerns about climate change, fossil fuels, pollution and genetically modified organisms. (more…)

Solidarity Attack on Developer in Waterloo, Ontario (Canada)

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

June 17, 2011

In the spirit of June Eleventh and inspired by recent actions against development in the Southern Ontario region, anarchists paid a visit to a condo development site on Belmont Ave. in Waterloo. The presentation building was painted in class war graffiti, all of the windows broken, and a nearby construction machine was covered in paint stripper and had its windows broken.

The Tricar Group (Real Estate Development & Property Management) are creating more space for the rich across Southern Ontario by building luxury condominiums in Waterloo, Guelph, Sarnia and London. Condos attract more yuppies into the cities where we live, increasing property values and pushing out the poor, broke, and working class people.

This action is in solidarity with Eric McDavid, Marie Mason, struggle in Greece, and all long-term anarchist prisoners, against the expansion of capitalism.

Condos are Class War!

-Anarchists

Ps. Brianna Waters: your betrayal disgusts us.

Arson of Church in Solidarity with Marie Mason, Eric McDavid & Imprisoned Comrades of the Social War (Peru)

Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

From vivalaanarquia, translated by war on society:

11 June 2011

This past 11th of June a fire was started on the side of a church which was under construction; we climbed the wall with mats in order to reach the entire wooden frame, instead of climbing the wall and going inside, we proceeded to leave plastic bottles filled with gasoline on which a sticker was placed, (alluding to the comrade fallen in combat, Mauricio Morales); and an additional amount [of gasoline] was splashed across the fence. Moments before climbing the walls again, we set fire and showered leaflets in solidarity to the eco-anarchist comrades Marie Mason and Eric McDavid; it was the same place where days before we painted slogans, while we were making an inspection of the area.

By way of this action we express solidarity with those who, like many other prisoners of the social war in the world, do not give up in this struggle; through this form we also show that our solidarity continues and will continue to be a weapon against the whole system of domination, and that those on the inside are not alone.

We do not surrender, we continue onward, we know that with intentions we do not change anything, but only with actions. Seek to live anarchy!

For fear to not destroy solidarity… for solidarity to destroy confinement!

Against the prisons of capital!

Freedom to the accused of the “Bombs Case”!

MARIE MASON AND ERIC MCDAVID TO THE STREET!


Circle of Iconoclastic Action / Informal Anarchist Federation


text of the leaflet:

INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY WITH IMPRISONED ECO-ANARCHIST COMRADES

Eric McDavid was arrested in January 2006 after being betrayed by “Anna,” a paid government informant, and was charged with a single count of conspiracy. Eric (who never carried out any action; we can say he was committed for a “thought crime”), refusing to cooperate with the State, was brought to trial, where he was sentenced to almost 20 years in prison.

Marie Mason was arrested in March 2008 after her partner turned FBI informant. Faced with life-long imprisonment if she went to trial, Marie accepted a plea deal in September 2008, admitting her involvement in an arson of an office involved in genetic engineering. In February of the following year she was sentenced to almost 22 years.

We express solidarity this June 11th with the eco-anarchist comrades who like many of the other prisoners of the social war in the world do not give up in this struggle.

For fear to not destroy solidarity… for solidarity to destroy confinement!

Against the prisons of capital!

MARIE MASON AND ERIC MCDAVID TO THE STREET!

TO FLEE FROM ALL PHYSICAL AND MENTAL PRISONS!!!

Glue, Spraypaint and Disorder in Cambridge against the System (UK)

Friday, June 17th, 2011

17 June 2011

“Early Friday morning, 17 June, we brought disorder to Chesterton Road, Cambridge. The HSBC bank was graffitied, its locks glued, its cashpoint trashed using glue and spraypaint. The offices of Seetech, a ‘back to work’ training company, was graffitied with the words FUCK WORK and circled As, a bike lock was used to chain the front doors and the locks were glued. We then visited the Chesterton Road JobCentre and graffitied the front saying FUCK WORK B4 IT FUCKS U and so on. We then sabotaged the cashpoints of the Lloyds TSB and the Barclays banks nearby, also graffiting both offices and gluing locks. A few other nearby businesses had their locks glued and were graffitied, including the slogan SMASH AUTHORITY, FUCK THE POLICE.

This goes out to other marginalised people, those who cannot and/or will not integrate into this sick society.

International solidarity to imprisoned fighters, including American eco-anarchist prisoners Marie Mason and Eric McDavid, also not forgetting another long term caged freedom lover Ted Kaczynski (aka FC or ‘Unabomber’).

We will not forget or give in, subversive complicities are our strength! Until all cages are destroyed…

Railways sabotaged in anarchist solidarity action (Finland)

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

The following communique was originally published in the Finnish anarchist portal Takku.net ——- Mainstream media news: 1.

Communiqué, June 13th [2011]

“With this communiqué we claim responsibility for the railway sabotage directed at a rail security electronics installation at Rekola in Vantaa. For this action we only needed a crowbar, some toilet paper, a few canisters of gasoline and a light. We broke in through the door and used toilet paper soaked in lighter fluid as a fuse, so we could flee the scene in peace before the arrival of the police and the fire department.

The decision to take action again was aided by the mass media’s response to the communiqué that was sent to the Takku.net site on June 6th, claiming numerous instances of sabotage over the last few months. The media’s outrageous accusations toward the comrades in Social Center Satama and the mixing up of the Roma migrants to these actions only displays what kind of scum we are dealing with. You can blame yourselves for the latest action.

The representatives of the media left the anarchist prisoners all over the world (and especially in the nine states we phoned in bomb threats to on June 6th), for whom the actions were also carried out in solidarity to – as well as to the Roma people and Social Center Satama, completely uncovered. As long as the situation of our comrades is not brought to light, we will strike against targets that are relevant to capital and the state.

Attacks on the railway network are as old as the anarchist movement itself. We are proud to continue the legacy of rebellious anarchy in our localities and we do so with confidence and a readiness to confront the possible consequences.

We once again send our subversive greetings to our comrades in Social Center Satama, the Roma migrants in Helsinki and anarchist prisoners all over the world. You are not alone!

We send warm greetings to our Chilean comrade Luciano Pitronello Schuffeneger, who was seriously injured when a bomb prematurely exploded outside a bank in Santiago de Chile. We also send greetings to the United States to Marie Mason, Eric McDavid, Grant Barnes and the other ecoanarchist prisoners on the international day of solidarity of June 11th.

Fire to the prisons!

To spread the rebellion everywhere – direct action and solidarity!”

Earth Liberation Front Russia – Informal Anarchist Federation / International Network claim series of attacks in Solidarity with Marie Mason, Eric McDavid & Long-term Anarchist Prisoners (Russia)

Monday, June 13th, 2011

325 received the following communique from Earth Liberation Front Russia – Informal Anarchist Federation / International Network of Action & Solidarity, about a series of attacks in conjunction with the 11th June International Day of Solidarity with Marie Mason, Eric McDavid and Long-term Anarchist Prisoners. Strength and force to all those imprisoned for their ideas, words and actions of resistance – We will never forget our prisoners of war. For a global insurrectional network based on revolutionary solidarity, direct action and subversion:

Solidarity with Marie Mason and Eric McDavid – ELF actions in Moscow region of Russia

“For me solidarity is a constant proposal to struggle, is the continuation and the development of the revolutionary action for which the comrade was captured” - Gerasimos Tsakalos, Conspiracy of Cells of Fire

01.06 we torched electrical measuring and control devices in 2 underground service booths of a water communication system that brings hot water to a military intelligence site in Butovskiy forest. To add to the fact that this infrastructure serves military personnel, more than 800 trees were cut during earthworks for this water supply line to even appear in the forest. To hamper service brigades further, we also spiked the road they use for maintaining the system.

05.06 we torched an excavator at a highway construction site west of Moscow (Volokolamsk direction).

06.06 and 10.06 we expropriated some construction equipment and destroyed geologists’ measurement posts in the glades of Butovskiy forest.

11.06 we broke into yet another underground service booth and put to fire all the digital and analog devices and tools inside.

We dedicate these attacks to Marie Mason and Eric McDavid. We don’t have the honour of personal acquaintance with them, but their dedication to protecting our Planet and conscious choices they’ve made not only to act, but also to stand their ground in the wake of state repressions, inspire us and help us to continue on our path.

For Earth Liberation! For Human Liberation!

International Day of Solidarity with Eric McDavid, Marie Mason & Long-term Anarchist Prisoners

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

June 11th

From the USA comrades organising the International Day of Solidarity with Eric McDavid, Marie Mason & Long-term anarchist prisoners. Revolutionary solidarity with our prisoners of war – A movement which forgets the prisoners is dead. This article is available as a PDF:

This is a strategy proposal for June 11th as a part of a broader push to develop livable support for long-term anarchist prisoners in the US. This statement specifically contemplates an audience of radicals & anarchists coming out of environmentalist, animal rights and/or anti-globalization milieus. Though, the readership is likely to include more people, that just happens to be my background and that Marie’s and Eric’s. (more…)

June 11, 2011: International Day of Solidarity for Marie Mason and Eric McDavid! (USA)

Saturday, April 9th, 2011

International day of action called by American comrades for the long-term revolutionary eco-anarchist prisoners under severe prisons conditions and subject to FBI & prison authority repression. The day is also called for all long-term anarchist prisoners around the world.

International Day of Solidarity for Marie Mason and Eric McDavid!

June 11th began as an international day of solidarity with long-term anarchist prisoner Jeff “Free” Luers in 2004. At the time, Jeff was serving 22+ years. Infuriated by the environmental devastation he saw occurring on a global scale, Free torched three SUVs at a car dealership in Eugene, Oregon (OR). The sentence imposed on him was meant to send a clear message to others who were angered by capitalism’s continued war on the Earth’s ecosystems – and to those who were willing to take action to put a stop to it. Free is, after all, not alone in his concerns about climate change, fossil fuels, pollution and genetically modified organisms.

After years of struggle, Jeff and his legal team won a reduction in his sentence and he was released from prison in December 2009. But in the years intervening Jeff’s arrest and release, the FBI had carried out a series of indictments and arrests in an attempt to devastate the radical environmental and anarchist communities. Two of the people caught up in this maelstrom of repression were Eric McDavid and Marie Mason. (more…)
