On Revolutionary Solidarity

May 26th, 2009

We would like to put forward the discussion on revolutionary solidarity because we feel it is not always clear what it is understood or taken for, what people mean with their solidarity expressions, since we see the importance to recognize ourselves in struggles, what it is surrounded with and what it is mistaken for. Because often we see people immediately use this form of activity for the necessary responding to revolt, attack and insurrection elsewhere at that moment, far away from daily imposed social surroundings, thus we wonder if that is what solidarity should imply, and would even question what is the purpose for it, considering it to be completely isolated and disconnected from both imported struggle as local reality.

May 26th, 2009

The liberal argument that internal prison justice and the equitable resolution of prisoners’ grievances is a critically important factor in maintaining the equilibrium and legitimacy of prison regimes, while also preventing the widespread embitterment of a group of people already significantly in conflict with the system, is obviously true in a particular sense. In the closed and hidden world of prison where the guards and system they enforce wield an omnipotent degree of power over prisoners the manner in which prisoners’ complaints and grievances are dealt with will inevitably determine whether that power is frequently abused or mediated with at least some semblance of fairness and lawfulness.
