Letter from eco-anarchist prisoner Marco Camenish about his hunger strike (Switzerland)

Friday, January 10th, 2014

Here follows Marco’s text, which came to RadioAzione via an e-mail sent by other comrades. The text explains the reasons of the hunger strike. From RadioAzione yet another strong hug and solidarity to the comrade kidnapped in the Swiss concentration camp of Lenzburg:

Hunger strike from 30/12/2013 to at least 26/01/2014 and refusal to doing forced labour from 6/01/2014 to at least 26/01/2014: this is my contribution to the struggle of resistance and to the struggle for total liberation all over the world inside and outside prison, against repression, class justice, prison, torture, isolation, sexism, racism, xenophobia, the imperialist war, the annihilation of life on the planet.

Annihilation in the history of the planet with the death of the species, never so close to catastrophe like that of the extinction of the dinosaurs (meteorite impact?), but today being carried out by the patriarchal and techno-industrial civilization of dominion and by the oppression of the murderous exploitation of global capital and its States.

Montreal: Cop car burned (Canada)

Sunday, March 17th, 2013

In the spirit of March 15′s past, a cop car was set on fire on the evening of March 15th, at the Poste 33 police station in Parc-Ex, Montreal. This action was taken to complement the 17th annual demonstration against police (and their brutality) that took place earlier that day.

We also send a message of support to Marco Camenisch in his struggles from inside prison in Switzerland.

Note: Police units attacked the annual anti-police demo in Montreal this year and arrested over 200 people in a preemptive assault. The target of the demo was the downtown policestation.

The comrades in Colombia send flyer-text and fotos of their action at the Swiss Embassy, Bogota. English translation below.

MITIN SOLIDARIO POR LA LIBERTAD INMEDIATA DEL COMPAÑERO ANARQUISTA MARCOS CAMENISCH !

Nos unimos al llamado internacional de movilizaciones por la liberación del compañero Marco Camenisch! Este 5 de febrero en la embajada Suiza en Bogotá. Col.

Marco se encuentra en prisión ininterrumpidamente desde hace más de 21 años, podría ya disfrutar de la excarcelación anticipada que las leyes del Estado suizo estipulan para quien ha cumplido los 2/3 de la pena a la que fue condenado. Pero en cuanto a Marco, que con coherencia nunca ha bajado la cabeza ante las desigualdades y nocividades de este Sistema, las autoridades suizas quieren mostrarse, cual relojes, más crueles que precisos: Marco debe quedarse en la cárcel.

“Do not say that we are few; just say that we are determined” – by the R.O. CCF and Theofilos Mavropoulos (Greece)

Sunday, December 2nd, 2012

via contrainfo:

Contribution of the nine imprisoned members of the R.O. CCF and anarchist prisoner Theofilos Mavropoulos to an international anarchist meeting convened under the insurrectional perspective (Zurich, 10–13 November 2012)

“Do not say that we are few.. Just say that we are determined..”

The question is not whether we are more or less poor, but whether we live in a way that does not contain us. We do not want to repeat things that have already been said.

We have banished from our minds the idea of central governance, and we do not believe in legends about the phantom of the proletariat. We are thus neither faced with an isolated State, which allegedly gives commands from the palaces of its Power, nor with a society that is waiting to be awakened in order to revolt. Today’s society is a pervasive social factory that produces attitudes, values, ethics and habits.

Today’s society works like a social death machine, which devours time, space, emotions and consciousnesses. The centre of the State and the heart of the system are dispersed in millions of small and large representations of Power in our everyday lives. They lie at the language we speak, the images of advertisements, the architecture of the cities, the virtual reality of technology, the people-centered civilization, the firearms of cops, the national symbols of fascists, the locks of private property, the standards we fall in love with, the walls of prisons.

Buenos Aires: Banner drop at the Metro for the Swiss Embassy in solidarity with Marco Camenisch (Argentina)

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

From vivalaanarquia:

On Wednesday 28th August, we hung a banner on the building of the Metro where the Swiss Embassy resides. While we were removed, we scattered flyers around the place. With this simple action, we express our solidarity with our anarchist comrade Marco Camenisch, a prisoner of Switzerland, currently on hunger strike. To him we send our love. To him and to all our comrades that meet behind the walls, but are never defeated, and never repent.

All our hate to the State and the prisons. They will never stop us because our solidarity is stronger than their repressive blows and organisations.

Revolutionary solidarity to all the indomitable prisoners all over the world.

Comradely greetings to all those who, day by day, struggle against this system of exploitation.

Death to the State!
Long Live Anarchy!

Eco-anarchist Luca “Billy” Bernasconi is free (Switzerland)

Friday, August 24th, 2012

Hello to all the comrades:

I left on Sunday, August 19. The judge (was foaming at the mouth!), like Silvia, I am also granted parole having reached two-thirds of the sentence. Finding the warmth of vegan compas, finding sights and words, it’s a pure joy to me.

Despite the isolation imposed on us during this time, in fact, there has not been a single time when I had the feeling of being alone. From the letters, from the news of events and initiatives, the news that came of actions, was almost palpable energy, a strong experience, despite everything. So, by force and warmth received from the courage, I can not say thank you enough. Thanks, really.

Naturally, nothing is over, rather, it is just a new beginning along “the path off the main street.”

Now missing Costa and Marco, Porco dio!

Total solidarity with all those investigated and raided by the operation “Mangiafuoco” and all the Anarchist rebels still inside.

Thanks,

Billy

Letter of Marco Camenisch about Operation Ardire (Switzerland)

Monday, July 16th, 2012

Note from ABC Berlin: Anarchist Marco Camenisch, imprisoned in Switzerland, has drafted a first letter regarding the “operation boldness” (operazione ardire). He is one of the accused in this frenzied construct against anarchists in Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Greece. Here follows a translation of Marco’s words (we gave it our best shot):

Brief no.1 about the latest anti-anarchist (baptized “bold”, what gives a marked effect to it…) construct by ROS (& f.) – Brutti

ROS stands for the special operations units, which I call dirty operations units (& forgers), since historically I’m a verity-abider. Lidia Brutti is the presiding GIP (judge for preliminary investigations) of the public prosecutor’s office in Perugia.

Preliminary remark: Until today I was not subject to official notices or reactions from the Swiss authorities, and have been informed little by little by the media and via my correspondence. (more…)
