Bloomington, Indiana: Banner drop in solidarity with Fernando Bárcenas (USA)

Thursday, February 18th, 2016

Responding to the call for solidarity with Fernando Bárcenas, we hung a
banner with words of support for our comrade. Fernando is an anarchist
imprisoned by the Mexican state for burning a Coca-Cola tree during a
demonstration against the rise of Metro ticket prices.

We hope that small gestures like these will accumulate and spread,
contributing to an anarchist internationalism that seeks to destroy the
walls of borders and prisons alike.

Against all states, against all prisons!
Solidarity with Fernando and all rebellious prisoners!

Solidarity with anarchist prisoner Sean Swain (USA)

Sunday, February 7th, 2016

Warren Correctional Institution, not content with merely restricting Sean’s communications with the outside world, has now assigned a lieutenant to read through all printed materials sent to Sean.

Please take a minute to send Sean some reading material. That stack of zines in the bathroom? That one book you’ve had for years but will never read? All those fancy new publications you designed? Send them all! Let’s help Sean (and the fuckweasels who intercept his mail) something to pass the time.

Send reading material to:

Sean Swain #243-205
Warren CI
P.O. Box 120
Lebanon, Ohio 45036
USA

We receive & transmit:

Bloomington, Indiana (USA): Banner hung in solidarity with Sean Swain

We hung a banner in solidarity with Sean Swain’s struggles against the prison system in Ohio. Despite repeatedly being transferred and having his communications cut off, Sean remains uncompromising in his pursuit of freedom, putting his life on the line in struggle against the state. We keep his words and deeds with us as we carry out our own struggles against prison society.

Fundraising, letters, demonstrations, banners, graffiti, and direct attacks form a bright tapestry of revolutionary solidarity. Let’s always be searching for new ways to break down the isolation of imprisonment and build complicity through the prison walls.

Santiago, Villa Portales: Barricada y lienzo en memoria de Claudio Paredes (Chile)

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016



Claudio Paredes era un joven de 18 años militante del FPMR y vecino de
la Villa Portales, quien muere en una explosión el 31 de enero de 1988 en
uno de los edificios de la Villa, mientras preparaba una carga explosiva
contra la dictadura de Pinochet junto a Fernando Villalón y Nelsón Garrido.

Hemos salido y prendido el fuego, queremos parar su fiesta

No hemos podido quedarnos ni quietxs, calladxs ni sumisxs ante la realidad
que vemos pasar ante nuestros ojos y nos ha estado robando la vida por
tantos años.

Hoy cuando hemos podido ver como los poderosos sin pudor, sin vergüenza
alguna han estado talando nuestros milenarios bosques del sur, arrasando
con los ríos para construir sus represas e hidroeléctricas. Contaminando,
desforestando los suelos, enriqueciéndose brutalmente con la tierra que
nos cobija, convirtiendo en mercancía toda flora y fauna existente,
asesinándola. Hoy cuando hemos podido ver como a lxs mapuche se les sigue
asesinando y encarcelando por su legítima lucha y resistencia en pos de la
recuperación de las tierras que les han sido robadas, continuando así la
masacre que comenzaron los invasores hace más de 500 años. (more…)

London: Soli-banner at Tourism Malaysia Office against the repression targeted at Rumah Api (UK)

Sunday, September 20th, 2015

A small act of solidarity from London for Rumah Api (KL): Banner drop outside
the Malaysian Embassy on the same day as a massive ‘Malaysia Night’ event
takes place in nearby Trafalgar Square. Rumah Api is a Kuala Lumpur based
anarcho-punk social centre and gig space, and was raided by armed police on
August 28th. This resulted in 160 people being arrested.

SOLIDARITY IS OUR WEAPON

Volos: Banner about the case of Evi Statiri (Greece)

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

In the morning of 02/09, we did the least we could do by hanging two banners in the city streets, seeking to send a sign of solidarity to the imprisoned Evi Statiri but also a sign of complicity in the face of the impending struggle about her release in case the six-month pre-trial detention is extended by the Court of Appeals on 03/09.

Evi Statiri is held hostage for six months now, accused of being a member of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire only because of her relationship with G.Tsakalos and the emotional blow her imprisonment can inflict on CCF’s morale, which was not bent from the discovery of the escape plan and the arrest of anarchist A.Spyropoulou, trying to make them repent. The vengeful fury of the judicial mechanisms and particularly of the appellate magistrate E.Nikopoulos, who constantly rejects the bail applications of Evi despite the provision passed after the recent hunger strike of the CCF, does not stop there, as even after her release, the mother of G. and Ch.Tsakalos, A.Tsakalou, who was arrested along with Evi, finds herself in a special form of exile in Salamina, from where she is not allowed to leave.

Strength to E.Statiri, A.Tsakalou, the comrades of the Cell of imprisoned members of CCF and A.Spyropoulou

Zero tolerance for the judicial mafia and every form of authority

The war rages on…

Until the total destruction of every prison

Until total liberation

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

Inter Arma received and translated:

Responding to the call for international solidarity with anarchist prisoners of war, on the Saturday night of August 22 we hung a banner in a busy part of the city, briefly breaking the flow of the wretched and miserable normality which the city–prison offers.

Freedom to all animals, human or non-human, fire to all prisons.

Bristol: Banner drop for prisoners (UK)

Friday, May 8th, 2015

325 receives and transmits:

Our greetings go out to Em, who just turned 34 behind bars after laying traps for
police cars.

One banner read:

‘Happy Birthday to Anarchist Prisoner Emma Sheppard! – Down with all cages!’

We know what a boot looks like,
When seen from underneath,
We know the philosophy of boots…

Soon we will invade like weeds,
Everywhere but slowly;
The captive plants will rebel
With us, fences will topple,
Brick walls will ripple and fall

There will be no more boots
Meanwhile we eat dirt
and sleep; we are waiting
under your feet.

When we say attack
You will hear nothing
At first

– Margaret Atwood “Song of the Worms”

The other banner:

‘Capital is ‘Green’ as Nuclear is ‘Safe’ – Against Industrial Society – Hands Off
Billy, Silvia, and Costas.’

In reference to 3 anarchist ecologists who the Italian state want to re-try over an
unsuccessful action in Switzerland, and the capitalist marketing ploy of Bristol as
the European Green Capital.

Both banners were hung over the M32 during the morning rush hour on Thursday 30th April.

Recently word has reached us of international police collaboration in the UK
targeting action or publication groups allegedly connected to a thwarted plan to
liberate guerrillas from dungeons in Greece. Solidarity to the underground who, from
Scotland to Bristol to London, head out with hackles raised and spray-paint, rocks
or slingshots in their pockets and blazing hearts never extinguished. A wink of
complicity for those that defiantly acted for freedom and who got away.

State repression is a hurdle for any liberation tendency. Here in England
anarchists, outlaws, and would be fighters with the Kurdish resistance to ISIS (see
the case of Shilan Ozcelik) can all attest to that. We call attention to the common
thirst for freedom in all these cases. May struggle continue in every form that is
necessary. Regardless of the outcome of the election pantomime we are ungovernable.

Words from 8 hunger strikers of the Network of Imprisoned Fighters (Greece)

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

Below is an excerpt from an open letter released in the small hours of April 11th 2015 by hunger strikers of the Network of Imprisoned Fighters.

[…] When we started the hunger strike, we knew it would be an uphill struggle that would stretch us to our limits. And it’s true that some of us, after 40 days of tough struggle, run the risk of developing serious health problems. Nevertheless, we’re not going to concede any ground to anyone who’s taking advantage of the government’s strategy in their attempt to wear us down and annul the effectiveness of our struggle. Therefore, we reiterate that we continue the hunger strike until the fulfillment of our demands, despite the visible risks to our health. We owe it to all the comrades who’ve felt we are giving a joint struggle against the state of exception, but above all we owe it to our own selves and to the means of fight that we have chosen. We invite all comrades to reflect on the cruciality of the situation (four comrades have been on strike for more than 40 days) and turn Every Day of Hunger Strike into A Day of Action.

Every fight exhausts its potential only when we give up, and this fight has neither exhausted its potential nor completed its cycle.*

PS.1: Yesterday [April 10th], our comrade Tasos Theofilou stopped the strike as well. We walked together this far, and remain united in our common struggle. Tasos, we wish you a good recovery.

PS.2: We send our solidarity to the revolutionaries from Turkey [incarcerated in Greek prisons], who stand beside us in this battle. We wish Giorgos Inglessis [who suspended hunger strike] a good recovery.**

PS.3: Solidarity with the migrants who went on hunger strike at the concentration camp in Paranesti, near Drama.***

Until the End – Until Victory
Not One Step Back

Network of Imprisoned Fighters
_

Translation notes:

* A reference to the opinion expressed by imprisoned comrade Nikos Maziotis.

** According to our information so far, the prisoners who remain on hunger strike are eight anarchists of the Network of Imprisoned Fighters (DAK), Andreas-Dimitris Bourzoukos, Antonis Stamboulos, Argyris Ntalios, Dimitris Politis, Fivos Harisis, Giorgos Karagiannidis, Grigoris Sarafoudis and Yannis Michailidis, as well as communists from Turkey & Kurdistan incarcerated in Greek prisons.

*** On April 10th, the No Lager Assembly in Thessaloniki, having established ties of solidarity and constant communication with the imprisoned migrants, reported that only one migrant is still on hunger strike in Paranesti camp, also noting that comrades from various collectives in Thessaloniki, Drama, Patras, Athens and other places supported and publicised the strike.
