Letter from imprisoned anarchist comrade Eric King – ‘Black August 2020 Reflections’ (U$A)

Friday, September 11th, 2020

From AMW:

Hiya pals,

We are midway through Black August and I’ve been doing lots of thinking, fasting, and trying to grow as a person and as a radical anarchist. Lots of fitness, reading, mentally taking stock.

This is my third Black August in SHU. I was thrown into segregation two years ago on August 17th and was kept within for a year pending prosecution; then, after they brought these new charges, we’ve done another year pretrial. It’s been a rough two years filled with restrictions, violence, abuse, but also love strength and friendship. Resistance is strong.

Last year’s Black August was spent partially at USP Lee, where I met Thomas Smith (aka Mad Dog) a blood leader and revolutionary who was also participating. He had been in SHU at that point for 18 months pending an ADX transfer. We fasted together, had long conversations on resistant strength and what it means to be a revolutionary today. I still think of Mad Dog often and encourage everyone to write and send reading material into him. (more…)

ES/EN – Palabras de la compañera Monica Caballero desde la cárcel de San Miguel ($hile)

Friday, September 4th, 2020

Para lxs antagonistas a este sistema de terror el ingreso a la cárcel siempre es un trago amargo y siempre duele.

La prisión y yo somos viejas conocidas, en mas de una ocasión me han sentado en su mesa, con los años hemos cambiado y ambas hemos aprendido la una de la otra… pero por mas tiempo que pase escencialmente la cárcel y yo seguimos siendo las mismas. La cárcel aun es el monstruo fagocitador de poderes que crece con la sumisión y el arrepentimiento, yo continuo con los mismos deseos sediciosos de antaño.

Lxs poderosxs lograron encerrar mi cuerpo inquieto, trataron de custodiarlo por muchos años, pero aunque esté enjaulada, mi corazón sigue afuera lejos de alambrados, altos muros y ojos vigilantes… el gris de este lugar solo me toca superficialmente.

El presidio es otro escenario mas de lucha en el camino de la confrontación, el enfrentamiento antiautoritario para mi no ha terminado, solamente ha cambiado de forma.
Queridos Juan Aliste, Joaquín García, Marcelo Villarroel y Dinos Giagtzoglou sus palabras son una bocanada de aire fresco en esta celda.

¡Queda mucho por construir y destruir!
Solidaridad activa con los presos politicos mapuche en huelga de hambre.

Viva la Anarquía!

Monica Caballero S.
Presa anarquista.

Letter from imprisoned comrade Monica Caballero in San Miguel prison

For those opposed to this system of terror, prison is always a bitter pill and it always hurts.

Prison and I are old acquaintances, on more than one occasion I have sat at his table, over the years we have changed and we have both learned from one another… but no matter how much time I spend in prison, I remain the same. Prison is still the monstrous phagocyte of power that grows with submission and repentance, and I continue with the same seditious desires of yester-year.

The powerful succeeded in locking up my restless body, they tried to guard it for many years, but even though it is caged, my heart is still out there far from fences, high walls and watchful eyes… the grey of this place only touches me superficially.

The prison is another place of struggle on the road to confrontation, the anti-authoritarian confrontation for me has not finished, it has only changed shape.
Dear Juan Aliste, Joaquín García, Marcelo Villarroel and Dinos Giagtzoglou‘s words are a breath of fresh air in this cell.

There is still much to build and to destroy!
Active solidarity with the Mapuche political prisoners on hunger strike

Long live Anarchy!

Anarchist prisoner.

8th hearing of the ‘Phoenix 2’ Trial (Czech Republic)

Tuesday, September 1st, 2020

On Monday the 13th of July 2020, another trial in the Fénix 2 case took place at the District Court in Most with the participation of the public. There was no fundamental reversal this time, again. Time passes, resources are continually being wasted and the whole things remains a farce.

Trial began with a list of alleged documentary evidence, which, in fact, only proved the incompetence of the police. The relatively long list consisted mainly of things from house searches that happened in April 2015, such as online media or anarchist publications. To give you an idea, we can list some of them bellow (1):

Povstalecký anarchismus: organizování se pro útok
Bludný kruh antikapitalistického hnutí v Česku
Ozbrojená radost – Alfredo M. Bonnano
Anarchistické napětí – Alfredo M. Bonnano
Příručka pro přímou akci
Bastardi, vím kdo vás poslal: o útoku na šéfa jaderného průmyslu
Konverzace mezi anarchisty
Neformální anarchistická federace: FAI a povstalecký anarchismus
Síť revolučních buněk 2014
Na nože s Existujícím, jeho obhájci a falešnými kritiky

Lukáš Borl pointed out in front of the jury that these materials were confiscated in places where he did not live (he did not even have a permanent residence in the Czech Republic back then). In the Ateneo community center, computers were used by the whole community, so these materials could be added to library by anyone. It is unclear how the police assumed that the confiscated materials belonged to him. Nevertheless, most of the confiscated items has already been returned, because (according to official statement) “the items are no longer needed for criminal proceedings and there is no doubt about their ownership by the accused”.

Cartazes: Semana de agitação pelos Anarquistas Presxs – Porto Alegre (Brasil)

Tuesday, September 1st, 2020

Porque vivemos na contradição de perder a liberdade lutando por ela Cartazes. Semana de agitação pelos Anarquistas Presxs. Porto Alegre.

“Um escravo pode se transformar num rebelde, um só homem, uma só mulher, podem se transformar num incêndio devastador da ordem que se deseja abater, que é a civilização, a qual dia a dia destrói tudo aquilo pelo que vale a pena viver.”
Alfredo Cóspito (palavras no cartaz pela semana de agitação pelxs anarquistas presxs).

Diante do inimigo, no nosso dia a dia, no nosso agir solidário, na construção de nossas cumplicidades e afinidades, na escolha entre gritar “morte ao estado e que viva a anarquia” e calar… vamos marcando nosso passo pelo mundo. Somos o peso de nossas decisões, e vivemos na contradição de perder a liberdade lutando por ela.

Cada companheiro e companheira sobre quem cai uma condenação e não se rende nem recua, marca no seu passo pelas prisões a determinação anárquica e a luta cotidiana de se manter dignos diante do inimigo.
Fora, xs anarquistas não deixam nenhum guerreiro só. Nessa interação que pretende quebrar o isolamento carcerário, recuperamos algumas das palavras dos próprios companheiros para fazê-las ecoar nas ruas.

Na tirania do encerro globalizado, a rua é um dos espaços onde o conflito permanece, onde as regras são quebradas, onde o ataque acontece, onde as revoltas são possíveis… Eis a importância de invadir seus muros com as palavras daqueles que lutam contra toda forma de dominação, com elas abrimos as portas para sair do encerro mental acurralado na lógica estatal e no consolo virtual, formas de poder engrenadas entre sim.

A Semana de Agitação pelos Anarquistas Presxs, inaugurada na década de 1920, nas agitações mundiais contra o assassinato de Sacco e Vanzetti, é o momento da vigência da solidariedade combativa: Através de diversos acenos que piscam em vários lugares, reafirmamos nossa cumplicidade na conspiração anárquica contra a dominação, nossa mão terna para os compas
e o punho fechado para os inimigos.

Semana de Agitação pelos Anarquistas Presxs 2020

Palavras dos compas nos cartazes:

“O dia que não exista um só indivíduo (e não falo de lendas místicas) capaz de resistir a mega-máquina autoritária, a liberdade de todxs haverá morto… Somente seremos apêndices de um sistema que gera apenas alienação perturbada.”
Gabriel Pombo Da Silva.

“Sabemos que a simples existência do Estado nos localiza em uma situação de opressão, situação que é necessário combater e atacar se se têm por horizonte a liberdade. Não pode ser de outro modo. E é nessa opção de atacar onde vamos encontrando verdadeiros momentos de liberdade”
Francisco Solar.

“É inegável que cada experiência de procura da liberdade vale a pena. Se fazer cargo da própria existência com todas suas vitórias, derrotas, alegrias e penas, é a experiência impagável que aquele que vive submetido nunca poderá conhecer. Não se trata de se perguntar se valeu a pena tentar fugir, pensar assim me condenaria a ser um eterno perdedor. O primeiro passo de toda ação é o mais valioso, aquele que sempre será um ganho.”
Joaquín Garcia.

“A dor é momentânea, o orgulho é para sempre”
Mônica Caballero.

“Um escravo pode se transformar num rebelde, um só homem, uma só mulher, podem se transformar num incêndio devastador da ordem que se deseja abater, que é a civilização, a qual dia a dia destrói tudo aquilo pelo que vale a pena viver.”
Alfredo Cóspito.

Santiago, Chile: Informativo a un mes de la detención de lxs compañerxs Francisco Solar y Mónica Caballero

Thursday, August 27th, 2020

Informativo a un mes de la detención de lxs compañerxs Francisco Solar y Mónica Caballero (Agosto 2020)

El 24 de julio del 2020 el Estado detiene a lxs compañerxs anarquistas Francisco y Mónica acusadxs del envío de paquetes bomba contra la 54 comisaria y el ex Ministro del Interior Rodrigo Hinzpetter (Julio 2019, acción revindicada por “Cómplices Sediciosos / Fracción por la Venganza”) y el doble ataque explosivo contra el edificio Tánica en el adinerado barrio de Vitacura (Febrero 2020 en plena revuelta, acción revindicada por “Afinidades Armadas en Revuelta”). Francisco se encuentra encarcelado en la Sección de Máxima Seguridad de la Cárcel de Alta Seguridad, en un comienzo permaneció completamente aislado pero tras la llegada del asesino de la joven Ámbar(*), el compañero busco la forma de encararlo y mostrar su rechazo con actos, siendo trasladado a una celda de otro sector permitiéndole salir -en parte- del extremo aislamiento en el cual se encontraba. Mónica tras permanecer varios días en la sección de “ingreso” sin acceso a patio y extendidose esta medida bajo la excusa de la cuarentena, finalmente fue trasladada al modulo de Connotación Publica de la cárcel de San Miguel.

Siguiendo las órdenes de los perseguidores de la Fiscalía Sur, a ambxs compañerxs se les extrajo nuevamente muestras de ADN, aquellos persecutores ya en el 2010 habían sacado mediante torturas esas muestras en el llamado Caso Bombas. Al igual que la totalidad de los recintos penitenciarios bajo el Estado Chileno, ambxs compañerxs se encuentran sin visitas, debido a la coyuntura sanitaria por el coronavirus y solo pueden tener comunicación mediante llamadas y videollamadas monitoreadas por gendarmería.

¡Solidaridad revolucionaria y activa con lxs compañerxs anarquistas Mónica y Francisco!


(*) Un mediático caso de un sujeto asesino y violador que atacaba a lxs hijxs de sus parejas, recientemente fue detenido tras un nuevo asesinato.

Chile: Letter from Anarchist Comrade Juan Flores Riquelme about the Arrest of Mónica and Francisco

Thursday, August 27th, 2020

We knew that by choosing the path of struggle against capital, our lives would develop against all odds, and it was not unknown to us that prison could be a possible destination.

We questioned this humiliating reality and its so-called “social peace”, we severely questioned the enrichment of the bourgeoisie and their power. There are really too many questions to take a stand against the prevailing order. Countless have been the assassinations by the repressive forces of the power, countless those insurgents who have given their lives looking for the sharpening of the conflict against the states.

Did the elite of this country believe that we would stand idly by after all their years of misery, alienation and neoliberal exploitation?

How could we not try to be the stumbling block against the uninterrupted advance of capitalism and the states?

Letter by Thomas Meyer-Falk for the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners (Germany)

Monday, August 24th, 2020

Prisons are places of darkness, of gloom, real life cannot flourish there. Because what is “real life”? It is one in freedom, integrated in friendly relationships, experiencing oneself as an individual. Because we live ourselves and are not lived.

It is not without reason that prison criticism is therefore always also a fundamental critique of society and the system, because within the prison walls the same mechanisms prevail as outside the gates, only in a much more severe form.

ABC’s Solidarity week for anarchist prisoners takes place in a time marked by the Corona pandemic. The pandemic in particular once again clearly reveals the injustices.
Members of marginalized social groups have a disproportionately higher risk of infection, illness and death (which also applies outside pandemic times, but is only currently particularly evident). And those who are in prison are even more vulnerable, because the general conditions, as the Prisoners’ Union (GG/BO) also tirelessly points out, are often pretty lousy. (more…)

$hile: Letter by Imprisoned Comrade Francisco Solar for the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners

Monday, August 24th, 2020

ES/FR

Words by comrade Francisco Solar for the international week of solidarity with imprisoned anarchists (23-30 August 2020)

How can we achieve moments of freedom, even if they are only brief and sporadic? What are those moments where we feel that what limits us loses weight and sense?

The answers can be multiple depending on the interests of each individual, how they understand and situate themselves in this world. Perhaps some people already feel free and these questions are unnecessary because they are alien to the tentacles of power.

Those of us who do not have these kinds of dreams know that the very existence of the State places us in a situation of oppression, a situation that is necessary to fight and attack if freedom is the horizon. It cannot be otherwise.
And it is in that option of attacking that we find true moments of freedom. Since we decided to confront this world and situate ourselves as its enemies, we began to look at our surroundings differently, we began to visualize objectives and their vulnerabilities, we began to see the best way to strike at power, we began to position ourselves on the offensive.
