‘we got up nice and early this morning to put up a banner expressing solidarity and anger towards the situation in Calais where, on 17th October, the French state have planned to begin a total eviction of the jungle. The banner was attached to the flagpoles in front of the war memorial in the centre of the city, somewhere that people regularly go to visit to remind themselves of their nationalist pride and identity that has been built on war, genocide, displacement, criminalisation and conquerence of other people. We want to show solidarity in this small way not just with the people in the jungle but in all places where people are trying to get on with their lives in the face of such incredible and brutal opposition – the peeps on strike/resisting within prisons all over the place, everyone fighting some serious battles against the Dakota access pipeline, autonomous zones under attack, the list is endless.
reduced mobility meant that the banner wasn’t up very high so unfortunately it was taken down within a few hours, but we hope that whoever did it enjoyed the generous amounts of lube that we smothered the ropes with… ‘

Bloomington, Indiana: Democratic Party campaign headquarters disrupted in solidarity with 9/9 prison strike (USA)
Saturday, September 10th, 2016
On September 8th, in solidarity with prisoners taking action for the 9/9 prisoner strike, about a dozen people disrupted activities at the local Democratic Party campaign headquarters. Standing outside the building, people held a large banner announcing the prisoner strike while a statement was read and others passed out handbills. Additionally, a group of people went inside the headquarters to yell chants, clog sinks, tear down campaign posters, and scatter handbills. An American flag in the office found its way into a toilet. People walked away from the building tossing handbills in the air.
From the handbill scattered at the action:
As the ruling party, the Democrats and their Bureau of Prisons are responsible for the conditions in federal prisons and everyone being held hostage inside of them.
They profit from the labor of prisoners and contract with countless companies and industries that do the same, while prisoners earn as little as a few cents per hour.
They are responsible for the exorbitant prices of phone calls, commissary foods, and other basic necessities in prison. For the mailroom censorship, both institutionalized and arbitrary, of political and other materials. They are responsible for the poor quality of water and food that some must endure for decades, or even the rest of their lives. And for the dismal or nonexistent health care for prisoners when these conditions start to take their toll.

Banner text: LET THE PRISONS AND POLICE STATIONS BURN
FREEDOM FOR THE ANARCHIST 3 FROM WARSAW!
In the second half of August 2016 we hung a banner in solidarity with Tadek, Oskar and Michał – the Warsaw 3 anarchists arrested on suspicion of trying to set fire to a police car. This was a minimum gesture as part of the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners.
The democratic regime holds them in isolation within the prison, treating them as dangerous criminals, trying to break their souls and destroy their will to resist. (more…)

Contribution to the international call for solidarity with the imprisoned anarchist comrades (August 23-30)
As a contribution to the international call for solidarity with the imprisoned anarchist comrades (August 23-30), and as a denotation of support to the recently arrested and imprisoned comrades K. Sakkas and M. Seisidis, we hung 2 banners and wrote slogans in Athens, and we hung a banner in Volos.
”There are people unknown to you that watch you from the shadows, while you haunt the anarchists, and they wait for the favorable moment to haunt the haunters on their turn.”
STRENGTH TO K. SAKKAS AND M. SEISIDIS
SOLIDARITY WITH ALL THE IMPRISONED ANARCHIST COMRADES
FIRE TO THE PRISONS
LONG LIVE ANARCHY

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!

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
P.O. Box 120
Lebanon, Ohio 45036
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.

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
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…)

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

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
