Mexico City: Explosive-incendiary attack in solidarity with the prisoners in Aachen, Germany (Mexico)

Mexico City: Explosive-incendiary attack in solidarity with the prisoners in Aachen

Reasons to fight, we have plenty. We have taken into account the need to act directly against Capital, every time we find more reasons to continue fighting. A few weeks ago for example some comrades were accused of armed robbery in Aachen, Germany; and understanding the bureaucratic process of the ‘legitimate justice’ of the bourgeoisie, they were deprived of freedom. We must not forget, as has already been mentioned in these spaces of diffusion, that expropriation is a just, direct action and part of the history of every revolutionary movement. Emphasizing the slogan: “What crime is it to expropriate or set fire to a bank compared to founding it?” (more…)

Fernando Bárcenas, Mexican Anarchist Prisoner, Calls for Solidarity with US Prison Strike (Mexico)

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

Via Actforfree:

Open letter to compañerxs.

Note: The use of the word prison in this text refers to all artificial environments that domesticate us so as to insert us by force into the capitalist system of production; this is a contribution to deepen the reflection of all living beings in the hands of economic powers and the technological project…

Compas, I greet you with insurrectionary love, that these words of war may reach you; greeting as well the coming days of insurrection, as ideas bloom in the fields like flowers we should not stop tending. We do not know if there will be a victory, but what we do know is that they will not occupy our dreams and our lives…

The only truly free moment is when we fight for freedom, because we prefer to die rather than accept this way of life, and without realizing it we are already free, because nothing occupies our minds except the sole desire to set fire to reality…

But what hides behind this destructive war, behind the somber darkness of the human spirit? Is it not perhaps the reflection and poetic manifestation of beings taking back their lives and actively influencing the organization of the daily life? (more…)

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!

Anarchist comrade Fernando Barcenas Castillo sentenced to 5 years, 9 months (Mexico)

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

A few days fulfilled a year to the arrest of Fernando Barcenas Castillo after a march against the rising of the price of metro tickets, where the Christmas tree owned by the Coca-Cola multinational was burned. Today the sentence was dictated to the comrade- 5 years, 9 months for the crime of attacks against the public peace, so he misses bail.

At a time when the Mexican government is intensifying its repressive methods, certainly the sentence to Fernando is looking to send a message to inhibit the growing signs of discontent. That is why it is important to continue fighting for the freedom of our imprisoned comrades, do not let them go into oblivion.

Continue demonstrating that solidarity is more than a written word.

Freedom to Fernando Barcenas !
Solidarity with Carlos, Amelie and Fallon !
Freedom to Abraham and Luis Fernando !
Down the prison walls !

“Chivo” Y Mario Gonzalez al 8 día de huelga de Hambre (Mexico)

Saturday, October 11th, 2014

An update on the health of the comrades on hunger strike in mexico via cna mexico:

A 9 días de iniciada la huelga de hambre de 4 anarquistas presos en la ciudad de México, un médico del equipo de seguimiento revisó al compañero Carlos López “Chivo”, preso en el Reclusorio Oriente. Al llegar a la puerta del penal, los custodios que resguardaban el acceso dijeron no tener orden de dejar pasar, pero debido a la insistencia de los solidarios que acompañaban al equipo, este logro entrar. Después de permanecer casi dos horas con Carlos, esto es lo que nos comentan:

ESCUCHAR

Mario González no ha sido revisado aún por médicos del equipo de seguimiento, sin embargo sus familares informan que sus síntomas son dolor abdominal,mareos, debilidad e irritabilidad. Ha bajado aproximadamente 5 kilos. Sus signos vitales se mantienen estables.Sigue el acoso y amedrantamiento por parte de custodios.

Mensaje solidario a los compañeros anarquistas en huelga de hambre en México

A Carlos López, Fernando Bárcenas, Mario Gonzáles y Abraham Cortés

Salud compañeros! Nuevamente nos encontramos en este sendero de lucha y de vida que elegimos, donde los aromas y deseos de solidaridad se desplazan intransigentemente sobre los vientos de libertad que se extiende hasta los escondrijos más oscuros de esta pútrida civilización.

Acompañamos atentos la decisión de huelga de hambre que iniciaron desde el 1 de octubre, entendemos este acto –como bien lo afirman- no como un intento de victimización sino como una respuesta consecuente de la lucha. Sin duda alguna los pasos que están dando sientan un avance en la solidaridad anárquica y la lucha anti carcelaria desde dentro de las mazmorras del Poder. (more…)

Update on the health situation of the 4 anarchist comrades on hunger strike (Mexico)

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

“If you asked me what prison is, I would answer without a doubt that it is a wasteland of defined social-economic plans, where they throw all those individuals that bother them within society: this is why prison mainly houses mainly poor people” Xose Tarrio

“A movement that forgets its hostages is condemned to fail” Harold Tobson

As of October 1st, comrades Mario Gonzalez, Carlos Lopez ‘El Chivo’, Fernando Barcenas and Abraham Cortez, imprisoned in different prisons in Mexico City, are carrying out a hunger strike indefinitely.

Four days in to the hunger strike, we make a call for solidarity to the struggle that the comrades are carrying out, fighting the society of incarceration in its heart. (more…)

4 anarchist comrades begin hunger strike (Mexico)

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

via cna mexico:

To free media
To the peoples of the world
To all those oppressed

Driven by a sense of rebellion and a declared rejection and true repudiation of all control mechanisms, including the prison system, we, anarchist and libertarian individuals, in our condition as prisoners abducted by the Mexican government, have decided to exercise one of the few tools of struggle which we can assert from inside prison: the hunger strike. From today, October 1st, a year after the arrests on October 2, 2013, 10 months of the kidnapping of Fernando Barcenas and 9 months after the detention of Amelie, Carlos and Fallon.

For us the hunger strike is not synonymous with weakness, much less do we seek to fall into a position of victimization; however, we assume it as an alternative of fighting that we consider conducive in a logic of protest and disobedience to the imprisonment of our bodies and the humiliation, isolation and frustration it means to be held in these centers of terror. We opted to take action rather than accept prison as “normal”.

The State seeks to train docile and servile citizens to maintain their established “social order” and thus be able to support the structure of capitalist production only beneficial to the ruling class. Prisons have a key role in shaping these good citizens. It is to the bourgeois society that the prison actually seeks to readjust. (more…)
