Send anarchist prisoner Sean Swain some love (USA)

Thursday, November 19th, 2015

From seanswain.org:

Sean Swain is having a very hard time right now and could really use being reminded that he is not alone. If you haven’t written to Sean in a while or haven’t heard back from him due to the ODRC messing with his mail or cutting off his other methods of communication, now would be a great time to flood him with letters, cards, photos, drawings, books, zines, anything.

In particular, now would be a good moment to remind Sean that he matters to you, that you are glad he is alive, and that you see him as contributing to the world in a way that matters to you. Every once in a while we all need a loving kick to the head to get us back on track and feeling ready to continue fighting. Now is that moment for Sean. So send him a kick; he deserves it.

Write to Sean at:

Urgent solidarity call for Robert Seth Hayes – Defend our long-term prisoners (USA)

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015

As many of you know, Seth has had a chronic cough since May of this year for which he did not receive any diagnosis or treatment for many months.

When Seth finally saw the pulmonologist at Coxsackie on Monday, November 2, the doctor wanted to know why the medical personnel at Sullivan had waited so long to bring Seth for a pulmonary exam. The pulmonologist intends to schedule for Seth a CT scan, a CT scan of his heart, and bloodwork. The pulmonologist thought there might be some infection, but needs more info.

In addition, the facility doctor (Dr. Sidorowicz) told Seth to come to the clinic to use the nebulizer whenever he feels short of breath. Seth has been using an inhaler twice a day (Seth does not get to carry his inhaler, and so needs to go to medical when he gets short of breath) and also the nebulizer twice a day for a while now, although he does not yet have a diagnosis of the cause of this chronic cough.

Minneapolis: Solidarity rally for arrested anarchists in Spain (USA)

Monday, November 9th, 2015

Updated: Here’s the reportback.

Almost a year ago, the Spanish State began a campaign of repression against anarchists, arresting dozens, including nine in late October, and five more in November of this year. Their imprisonment is justified with the invention of a fictional terrorist group, the GAC-FAI-IRF. No attack has ever been claimed with this set of acronyms, and the GAC (Coordinated Anarchist Groups) are only the authors of a recent book, Contra la Democracia (eerily similar to the Tarnac Affair and The Coming Insurrection in France, 2008).

On Saturday we will rally in solidarity with those arrested, at 6:00pm at the corner of E Lake St & Minnehaha Ave in Minneapolis.

Statement from Amazon, transgender prisoner on hungerstrike (USA)

Tuesday, October 20th, 2015

Amazon, a transfemale from Gender Anarky in prison in California, began
a hunger strike the morning of October 7, 2015 for transfer to a women’s
prison. Amazon is legally a female. In January 2015, Amazon’s birth
certificate was amended by the Office of Vital Records in Sacramento to
record her sex as “female.” Under a new law signed by the governor,
transexuals no longer need full sex-reassignment surgery to amend their
vital records, but instead a doctor’s declaration of transition to
reflect their current gender. Amazon accomplished this. She then applied
for a transfer to a women’s prison. The prison required Amazon to
present her new birth certificate. However, prison rules prohibit
inmates from possessing birth certificates and Amazon asked the prison
to verify the document with the Office of Vital Records. The prison
refused to do so. Amazon then attempted to file a grievance over the
issue, but she was again required to produce her birth certificate to
pursue a grievance. This is an example of the notorious mind games that
prison officials play on inmates to suppress legitimate issues and
prevent them from seeking an administrative resolution of the problem.

Communique From The Blast! Blog (USA)

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

New site from USA releasing the home addresses and personal info of prison officials, guards, corporate CEO’s etc. Hunt and stalk.

It’s been an exciting few months over here in the battlefield of the blogosphere. We’ve had infos dropped about the home addresses of various public officials, prison employees, and even profiteering CEO’s (Shout out to Ryan Shapiro!) Our presence has caused some squirming on all sides. We thinks that it is completely paramount to ask ourselves why. Why would people who claim to desire the destruction of the prison system and capitalism be uncomfortable with doxing the people who have been doxed on our site? Why would people who seem so secure in their power and moral righteousness feel threatened by the presence of their home addresses on our website? Posted by bona fide punk ass trolls no less? Why would anarchists and jailers share the same opinions? Most importantly: What side are you on? (more…)

Olympia Police Westside Substation Attacked (USA)

Saturday, October 10th, 2015

Early morning on October 2, we attacked the westside olympia police substation. We smashed the windows and door security keypads, glued the locks, tagged the outside, and trashed the inside with paint mixed with brake fluid. One tag read “no cops no charges.” Our hearts swelled with joy. A few blunt objects, some super glue,and some paint can be found lying around in nearly any garage (make sure there is nothing incriminating left behind), or can be scored for a few bucks (use cash). A group of trusted comrades with a plan can break piggy’s hearts with relative ease, they are too demoralized to even clean up their own sty.

If this strikes you as “violent,” consider the fact that the police are the most consistently racist and misogynist of all mass shooters.

We loved seeing the light reflect off city hall’s shattered windows as the leaves turned from green to golden. We hope the westside substation stays trashed, with its windows boarded up, keeping out the sunlight. We hope that this way the swine get just a tiny taste of the misery they inflict on millions of people by imprisoning them in cells for years on end. We hope they incinerate themselves inside, and nothing is left, like the prisons we want to see in ashes.

We fight from where we stand. We hope others do the same.
We attack because we want to communicate with you, because we are inspired to act against the police.
We hope you will act in your own way to fight for a world without police.

Urgent update regarding anarchist comrade Eric King’s mail being rejected! (USA)

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

The CCA Leavenworth mailroom has been blocking some of Eric’s incoming
mail, censoring publications for ridiculous reasons (or for no stated
reason at all), and even blocking some of his outgoing mail.

Recently, a book about the Black Panthers was rejected because the prison
evidently considers them a “hate group.” Around that same time, right­wing
Christian literature with homophobic rhetoric made it through to another
prisoner. Eric is clearly being targeted for his political beliefs and

If you have been writing to Eric and have not heard back from him, it is
very possible that he has not received your letters or you have not
received his. (more…)

‘Keep on Rockin’ – Chapter 11 of the book ‘Radical Peace: People Refusing War’ By William T. Hathaway (USA)

Keep On Rockin’

Chapter 11 of the book
RADICAL PEACE: People Refusing War
By William T. Hathaway

RADICAL PEACE is a collection of reports from antiwar activists, the true stories of their efforts to change our warrior culture. An American exchange student in one of my courses here in Germany contributed the following essay about how she became an anarchist for peace. Because of her activism she wishes to remain anonymous.

Jason was my boy-friend for a while in high school. It wasn’t a match made in heaven. Looking back, I think the main thing we had in common was that I wanted a boy-friend and he wanted a girl-friend. Other than that there wasn’t much between us, as we discovered whenever we tried to talk about anything. I broke up with him when he asked me to go rabbit hunting with him. We stayed friends, though, probably because since it was obvious we could never be a real couple, neither of us had hard feelings.

We both left town after graduation; I went to college, Jason went to the marines. Two years later we were both back home; I was on summer vacation, Jason was on medical leave after having half his leg blown off in Iraq. He’d been riding in a truck that hit a mine. (more…)

‘The Transformer’ – Chapter 10 of the book ‘Radical Peace: People Refusing War’ By William T. Hathaway (USA)

The Transformer

Chapter 10 of the book
RADICAL PEACE: People Refusing War
By William T. Hathaway

A former student of mine works as a janitor. After graduating from college he worked as a market researcher and an advertising salesperson, but both jobs soured him on the corporate world. He hated being a junior suit, and the thought of becoming a senior suit was even worse.

He finds being a janitor a much better job. He’s left alone, it’s low pressure, and what he does improves the world rather than worsens it. The pay’s lousy but that’s standard these days. He loves music, so he loads up his MP3 and grooves to the sounds. Although the work is routine, it’s brightened by occasional bits of human interest: used condoms in executive wastebaskets, marijuana butts in the emergency stairwell, a twenty-dollar bill under a desk. His shift is from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m., and afterwards he hits the late-night clubs, where he can enjoy the scene with the advantage of being sober. He works for a janitorial service company, and one of their clients is a defense contractor — not secret weapons, just ordinary supplies. (more…)

‘The Split’ – Chapter 9 of the book ‘Radical Peace: People Refusing War’ By William T. Hathaway (USA, Israel)

The Split
Differences over Israel tear apart a Jewish marriage

Chapter 9 the book
RADICAL PEACE: People Refusing War
By William T. Hathaway

Stan and Hannah Cooper are friends of mine from college days. Both are Jewish, but they have diametrically opposed views about Israel, and their differences have become so bitter that they’ve decided to divorce. As the three of us talked about this, it became clear that their dispute is a microcosm of the conflict that is tearing the Jewish community apart and also destroying lives in an increasingly large part of the world.

William: Your differences must have become quite serious if you’ve decided to end your marriage after all these years.

Stan: Well, these are very serious issues. If you take the Holocaust seriously, you have to support Israel. And Hannah doesn’t. If she has her way, if the people she supports come to power in Israel and the USA, they’ll stop resisting the terrorists and become holier than thou pacifists while the Arabs push the Jews into the sea and blow up half the USA. Then the pacifists will cry about what a tragedy it all is.

Well, I’m not going through another tragedy. I’m not going to see America and Israel destroyed because we didn’t have the courage to stand up to fanatics. I’m not going to have our generation go through something like our grandparent’s went through. Once is enough, once was way too many, and now we finally have to defend ourselves. (more…)

Generations of Resistance to War

Chapter 8 the book
RADICAL PEACE: People Refusing War
By William T. Hathaway

A Granny for Peace told of finding young allies in the struggle against military recruiting. Due to the PATRIOT Act, she wishes to remain nameless.

It’s never easy being a parent or a child. The generations always have friction between them, a conflict between the elders’ need to give guidance and youths’ need to find their own way. I grew up in the 1950s, when the USA was very conservative and bound by traditions. My parents’ generation had grown up in the Depression amid poverty and then struggled through World War Two with its threat of death and destruction. By the time they were ready to start families, they were fixated on stability and security. They measured their progress by their possessions: buying their first car, first television, first house. Their morality centered on controlling sexuality and protecting private property. Their religion was a death cult of stern patriarchs, obedient virgins, innocent babies, and threats of eternal torture. Their deepest philosophy was, “There is no free lunch.” The peak of their scientific achievement was the hydrogen bomb. Fear was their strongest emotion. (more…)

Report from ABC Denver: Repression in Denver (USA)

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

Over the last year there has been a strong resistance to police murder
and terror across the city of Denver. This is only the most recent surge
in resistance to police terror in our city, going back to the loss of
Paul Childs in 2003 or more recently Marvin Booker in 2010.

Denver Police have been systematically targeting and arresting those
actively involved in this organizing. Denver Community Defense
Committee, a group which has organized extensive support for families of
people murdered by police, has five of its seven members under
prosecution or known to be under investigation by the Gang Unit of DPD.
Prominent independent journalists, those with an expansive reach through
social media, have been targeted and arrested while filming the police
in Denver.
