To Rediscover our own History is to Unearth Hope (Indonesia)

March 9th, 2011

People on the left consider the anti-authoritarian movement, and especially the anarchists, as something that is childish or just imitating the west, the creation of people that do not yet understand their own identity. Their reasoning is straightforward, because there is no anti-authoritarian history in Indonesia. Indonesian society, we are told, is a feudal society that is not capable of acting without a command structure and an elite leadership; the actions that are glorified by adherents of anti-authoritarianism always refer to Western states. That’s because, they say, anti-authoritarianism and anarchism are absolutely irrelevant in the Indonesian context.

But let’s take a look just how these people on the left have only one talent: to lie. Read the rest of this entry »

Letter of Solidarity to the Chilean Comrades on Hunger-Strike (Greece)

March 8th, 2011

FROM ANARCHIST PRISONERS : Skouloudis, Tsilianidis, Fessas, Tzifkas, Dimtsiadis

Freedom, as well as bars are firstly and mainly in our heads. There are however moments where it becomes perceptible and with particular intensity the existence of walls around us. Moments where under other circumstances we would risk our skin in order to leave the flames to warm people that are fighting far from us, people that we do not know but we feel them reflecting our egos and what we desire on the other side of the world.

Native American prisoner Jason Campbell on hunger strike at Ohio State Penitentiary (USA)

March 6th, 2011

The following is a statement from Jason Campbell, an inmate in Ohio State Penitentiary where Lucasville uprising prisoners Siddique Abdullah Hasan, Bomani Shakur and Jason Robb recently won significant improvements in the terms of their confinement through a 12-day hunger strike and an international campaign of support. Campbell chose Feb. 27 to start his hunger strike because it is the 38th anniversary of the liberation of Wounded Knee by the American Indian Movement. Since he wrote this statement, the prison has moved him to segregration (the hole) and confiscated as contraband a necklace with religious significance that he had permission to have.

Thank you for your interest in my current plight. I am grateful that there is at least one voice still willing to speak up on behalf of those in my position. Read the rest of this entry »

Letter from imprisoned anarchist prisoner Aris Sirinidis (Greece)

February 28th, 2011

On the 9th of March 2011 the urban justice is to judge in a public procedure my “case”. A “case” that was manufactured in the biological laboratories of GADA (central police headquarters in Athens), but was not in any case a product of science fiction.

The political character of my prosecution can, I believe, be summarized in a abomination of the interrogative proposal, with which it was attempted to confirm the decision of my imprisonment. Immediately after the monotonous effort to support the sole, and this of minimal importance, evidence that the police brought as proof of guilt – a surgical mask with my DNA-, the interrogator continues as follows: “Testifying, anyway, the defendant, in his own phraseology, declares himself an anarchist, does not hide his subversive action, he includes himself in the anarchist movement, he considers himself a revolutionary and he wishes to reverse this world, being included in the daily struggle against the state and capitalism”.

Conspiracion Acrata, English edition – Feb 2010-2011 (Mexico)

February 28th, 2011

Insurrectionary and revolutionary anarchist publication

Mexico city – Mexico

English edition – February 2010-2011

“Salud! This here is one more number of the insurrectionary and revolutionary anarchist publication that we call CONSPIRACION ACRATA. This project was born during the month of March of 2009 as a medium for the diffusion of the insurrectional anarchist struggle. During this time we have completed 8 editions, with this being the most recent. This edition, completely in English (except the addition of the editorial) was made with the aim of spreading the social war that is being fought in Mexico to English speaking countries, this special edition is a compilation of texts, news, critiques, communiqués from anarchist and eco-anarchist cells in Mexico as well as various texts that were edited for past editions. This publication was also formed from the importance of the diffusion of revolutionary anarchist ideas that are often strongly criticized by individuals who feel they have the role of the judge of the revolution, and instead of putting forth objective critiques, only assert prejudiced and condemnatory critiques which aim to isolate the anarchist compañer@s of action from the entire movement.”

Prison poem scratched in polystyrene cup (UK)

February 26th, 2011

Here is a prison poem that was written by Stan Skank after he got arrested for some bullshit in London on one of the recent demos. Stan scratched this into a polystyrene cup (UK detention is pretty sparse), but how he managed to write all this on one is beyond us. Anyway, Stan bothered to send it to us, so here it is for you lot:

Here I sit in another nick, for another crime I did not commit,
Another profile, another trial
They don’t give an inch but always leap a mile,
All this attention when I don’t wanna be admired,
I’m gettin’ sick and tired of being sick an tired

I just wanna be left alone, For a quiet life and to build a home,
But the government always wanna check up on me,
There’s no freedom without anarchy,
Capitalism is a public hell,
And if you try to make a change pigs stick you in a cell.

My caged mind wanders,
Wonder how long they’ll hold us,
But like a blizzard in a snow globe our prisons can’t contain us
Each unique but unified flake
Ready for an outbreak, with the power of an earth quake,
We won’t wipe but crack the slate,
Innumerable droplets from a tsunami
An uncontrollable tide to wash away the tyranny.

They’ll call it a disaster but I say it’s natural,
What you call a riot to me looks like a battle.

Forces meet and sabres rattle,
Flank us in a pincer then stick on the kettle,
If you increase the pressure we’ll boil over you just watch us,
We’ll scald the hand that feeds and the other which oppresses.

We’re the freedom fighters, we’re urban guerrillas,
You may strike us down, but you’ll never fucking kill us.
