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

Report from ABC Denver: Repression in Denver (USA)

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.

War against ISIS/Daesh: Solidarity greetings from MLKP Rojava to the rallies of 25-26 of July (Kurdistan)

August 13th, 2015

Our friends are to come together to protest against the Suruç Massacre, we are for embracing comrades and friends with love. To say like Che, “Solidarity is delicacy of peoples” is our command still. We are all together against the massacre policy at this time like all of the time.

AKP government was supporting first Al Nusra, but now AKP support ISIS and they attacked revolutionary young people together. The SGDF (Socialist Youth Association) members was on the way to build the city Kobane again. The fascist government of Turkey AKP and ISIS to turns towoards the young people.

Member of the Socialist Youth Association came to rebuild Kobane, young people have the freedom of the Kurdish people saw as their freedom. They target was chosen because they had been building a bridge of brotherhood

ISIS and co-operation with the AKP carried out this attack , nor the meeting with the world Rojava Revolution with the struggle of the Kurdish people will not prevent the meeting of the socialists.

AKP government’s expectations was defeated by the Kobane resistance.

When Til Abyad got liberated, lies came from AKP and Tayyip Erdoğan, “They are killing ethnic groups.” After then with saying “If Kurdish zones and cantons join together, we will enter Syria too.”, started to threaten Kurdish people. AKP, can not tolerate the equal and democratic Rojava, increasing their cooperation with ISIS, then started to make massacres. However, massacres or fascist terrorism are not able to block Kurdish people’s freedom bid.

AKP-ISIS connection will be ended by Kurdish people’s united challenge. We are inviting all workers to save socialist young people who are humanity’s honor and also waiting an answer against AKP-ISIS cooperation.

We will evolve the pain into anger, and the anger will be evolved into rebellion at streets!

Honor, the challenge of freedom and the martrys are immortal!

MLKP-Rojava

Vatan Budak – 5th anarchist killed by the Suruç bombing (Turkey)

August 13th, 2015

Vatan Budak who was wounded in Suruç bombing passed away.

We lost our comrade, Vatan Budak who was wounded in Suruç (Pirsus) bombing and in intensive care for 16 days. Vatan was the member of United Anarchist Attack.

He is the 5th anarchist comrade killed in Suruç blast.

His funeral took place today in Gaziosmanpaşa, İstanbul.

This neighbourhood is predominantly fascist and his family is one of the few Kurdish families living there. Because of great threat of violence and danger to his family flags and banners were somehow restricted. They were fully displayed only in the cemetery, where speeches were made bidding him last farewell. He was buried under black and red flag.

Different anarchist groups and individuals were present.

Instead of a minute of silence – a whole life in struggle!

One person was reported arrested on their way to the funeral, but we haven’t got more info.

Poster about the cases of Evi Statiri, Athena Tsaklou & Nikos Romanos (Greece)

August 13th, 2015

“Reach what you cannot”N. Kazantsakis

For four months the state has held Evi Statiri, the life companion of comrade G. Tsakalos in prison and has kept Athena Tsakalou, the mother of G. and C. Tsakalos isolated on the island of Salamina depriving her of the ability to have contact with her children.

These persecutions serve as the state’s revenge for the war initiated by the members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire, a war that they continue to fight even from within prison walls where they still seek their freedom, preparing themselves for the destruction of their prison.

The comrades Aggeliki Spyropoulou and Christos Rodopoulous are in custody for the same case.

Meanwhile, the prison authorities have denied the educational leave that anarchist prisoner Nikos Romanos won with his hunger strike.

Several thousand kilometers away in Chile the comrades Nataly, Juan and Guillermo began a hunger strike to demand, among other things, the release of their comrade Enrique Guzman. They ended their hunger strike after the release of Enrique. But then four days later, the bastard prison authorities overturned their decision and returned the comrade to Santiago prison.

We for our part know that we cannot expect anything from our persecutors. Our solidarity with the unrepentant anarchists is continuous and aggressive and smashes down all forms of deprivation of liberty.

Until they are free we stand in complicity alongside the armed anarchist guerrillas.

Revenge or nothing.

Santiago: Anarchic/nihilistic comrade Sergio Alvarez arrested for hooded riots (Chile)

August 13th, 2015

[Translated by Sin Banderas Ni Fronteras]

Anarchic comrade Sergio Alvarez was arrested on Wednesday, July 15 in the context of clashes between police and hooded people who came out from an university in the city of Santiago. After being beaten and spending the night on a police station, he was taken to a judge and paraded as a trophy to the journalistic carrion´s cameras. At that time, walking with his head up and guarded by police, he shouted out loud: “The war continues, long live anarchy!”

After being formalized for possession of incendiary device, disorder and aggression against the police, a judge decided to leave him in total house arrest for three months, during investigation. However, following an appeal by the prosecution, Sergio had to enter this Wednesday, July 27 to “Santiago 1” prison.
