To all the solidarity comrades.
With these lines we want to update very briefly the situation of our comrade Gabriel Pombo da Silva.
Since he is in the prison of León, for the first time in his life as a prisoner, in general one can say that he is not suffering from open provocations and that he is being left “in peace”. However, a few weeks ago they began not to deliver the books sent by mail with the old excuse that they have no legal deposit (some have legal deposit and others do not) and it seems that correspondence has become slower, which, until now, despite the intervention of communications, has worked quite well.

Rotating Hungerstrike in Spanish prisons
From last 1st of September on at least 14 prisoners, mostly anarchists, take actually part of a new rotating hunger strike against the precarious health conditions in the Spanish prisons. They reinvicate also a 14 point program against isolation custody (FIES/DERT), tortures and physical and psychical violence from the prison guards, dispersion of prisoners far from their home, etc. Every comrade is doing a 10-days-hungerstrike, one following other, every month 3 prisoners.
Violence in Spanish prisons is very common, every year 200 prisoners die inside Spanish prisons violently or from drugs, no medical attention or diseases. Actually in corona times, the conditions in jail are mostly insoportables (bad food, no activities, no visits…). Last month of August our comrade Carmen Badía Lachos was violated from a prison guard inside the ‘hospital’ part of the Zuera-prision (Zaragoza). (more…)

Printed copies coming soon…
We present a new book by Black International Editions, an internationalist project of anarchic diffusion that, from an informal and seditious anarcho-insurrectional intent, resurfaces in Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and English, with a new title: “Incendiary Dialogues: For the Propagation of Anarchic Sedition”. The title is based on a dialogue on the course of the anarchic war between comrades Alfredo Cóspito, Gustavo Rodríguez and Gabriel Pombo da Silva.
We consciously decided to launch this booklet on May 22, in timely celebration of Chaos Day, remembering anarchist comrade Mauricio Morales, who, on a day like today in 2009 left this life fighting against Power when the bomb he was carrying in his backpack exploded prematurely, detonating a few meters away from the Gendarmerie School in Chile.
We dedicate this book to all our comrades in prison around the world, with a special dedication to our comrade Alfredo Cóspito, imprisoned in Italy, and to our beloved Gabriel Pombo Da Silva, who was arrested in Portugal and extradited to Spain at the time this book was published. We send all our strength to comrade Gabriel in the face of this new revenge by the authorities for his eternal irreducible struggle.
This book will have printed versions that will circulate in affinity spaces, among comrades and diverse anarchic projects around the world. We invite you to actively support its diffusion by sharing its digital version, printing copies and/or making presentations and launches wherever there is a willingness to do the impossible in order to spread chaos and extend anarchic warfare.

Words from anarchist prisoner Gabriel Pombo Da Silva, Oporto (Portugal)/Badajoz (Spain) – April/May 2020
Monday, August 10th, 2020
Translated to English by Act for freedom now!
Gabriel Pombo Da Silva communique
Gabriel has asked us to select some of his words from his more recent letters and compile a communique addressed to all those who would like to read it, as it is impossible for him to write one now that would get out of the prison where they are holding him kidnapped. The letters in question, which arrived after much delay, are dated from 11th April to 20th May when he wrote the only letter in the prison of Badajoz in Portogal, [he has since been transferred to the prison of Mansilla de las Mulas in León].
Gabriel sends strong hugs to all the comrades who are supporting him sincerely and to all the dignified individuals who continue to struggle for freedom in whatever part of the world they find themselves.
Freedom for Gabriel!
Freedom for all!
Long live Anarchy!
Words from Gabriel Pombo Da Silva, April – May 2020
“… what is happening has no logic or rules… it’s like playing a game of chess where every now and again someone buts in and moves a piece on the board… how can you play or win a game like that? What are the ‘rules’ or the ‘limits’? I can’t even talk about ‘Law’ (regardless of what I think about it) or appeal to ‘Rights’ after all I have gone through… that’s why I am wondering: given that I don’t have any ‘Rights’, what are the ‘rules’ of this struggle? In the end the State’s war against resilient individuals is always dirty, without any ‘rules’…” (more…)

Comrade Elisa has sent us information about our anarchist comrade Gabriel Pombo da Silva, who has already been transferred and is in the prison of Mansilla de las Mulas in León. Although she has not yet been able to speak directly with Gabriel, she knows that he is well and that the prison in Leon is a compliance prison, so they will want to keep him there for a while.
You can write to him and keep in touch with him at the following address:

We cannot forget our imprisoned comrades!
The struggle continues!
Freedom for anarchist prisoners!
Freedom for our comrade Gabriel Pombo!

15.06.2020: Last Thursday, June 11, the Provincial Court, the court at the base of the judicial pyramid in Spain, demonstrated its inquisitorial power by rejecting the request for annulment of the OEDE (European Arrest Warrant) that sent our comrade back to the dungeons of the State after three and a half years of freedom.
After a year and a half of clandestinity, Gabriel was arrested last January 25th in Portuguese territory as a result of the above-mentioned OEDE issued by the Court No. 2 in Girona (specifically by Judge Mercedes Alcázar Navarro), with the intention that he would serve another 16 years in prison counted as a residual sentence (response to the complaint of malfeasance against the judge for having hidden the order for Gabriel’s immediate release in June 2016, which delayed his release, that judge has set in motion her own revenge!).
After three and a half months of pre-trial detention (months during which it was clear that Portugal had submitted to the pressure of Girona Court No. 2 and that the European rules that would have allowed the release of our comrade had not been applied), on 12 May, he was handed over to the Spanish authorities and is currently in the prison of Badajoz (Extremadura).

Our comrade has been handed over to the Spanish State this morning (May 13) and is currently in the Badajoz prison (Extremadura). He is well and strong as always. Surely he will have to stay 14 days in a mandatory quarantine and then, supposedly, be transferred to another prison. In that sense, more information will follow.
Even if we have no guarantee that the mail will work regularly, it is obvious that it will not be a virus that is responsible for the fact that the letters of your loved ones and solidarity may not reach him! So it would be better to send registered letters (also as a result of recent problems that occurred in the Porto Judiciary Police jail where Gabriel was able to receive the correspondence only by documented registered shipments).

Translated from Italian by Act For Freedom Now!
As our comrade Gabriel hasn’t written any official communique so far, these words intend to be precisely a communique/diary and a way of sharing with people and comrades in affinity what he thinks in regard to certain questions.
Gabriel explicitly asked his comrade/partner to select the passages (from letters he sent to her) where he reflects/analyses and/or speculates on interesting issues related to the current situation: «coronavirus» in prison, his judicial situation and the circumstances of his imprisonment.
Gabriel is in good health and spirits and he’s ready for the war he’s expecting in the jails of the Spanish State. In spite of the sentence issued by the Supreme tribunal of Lisbon confirming his consignment to the Spanish State, we still don’t know whether the «authorities» will extradite him without taking into account the «state of emergency» declared following the «Covid-19» «pandemic». As a matter of fact, the «state of emergency» itself (theoretically) is preventing prisoners from being extradited to other countries as long as it lasts.
More information to follow.
Long live anarchy!

Yesterday, as I was listening to (watching) TV, I had already guessed that these scum would leave us without visits and today… well today was a crap day…

We recall that our anarchist comrade Gabriel Pombo Da Silva was arrested in Portugal on January 25th, after a year and half of clandestinity.
During his confinement in the cells of the Porto judicial police station the defense has worked for his immediate release as the law “provides”. But, as we already know, that right is inversely proportional to power and Portugal has clearly demonstrated to be under the power of the Spanish State that wants to completely annihilate our comrade. They haven’t done it after 32 years behind bars, nor with isolation, torture and humiliation of all kinds, how can they think they will do it now!?
Mrs. Mercedes Alcázar Navarro (judge of court number 2 of Girona), in any case, is working hard on it and, for now, thanks to the close and subordinate collaboration of her Portuguese colleagues, has managed to convince the Lisbon Supreme Court to give in to her reasoning.
Today, March 27, we have learned that the aforementioned court has pronounced in favor of Gabriel’s extradition to the Spanish State. In fact that has finally been confirmed to us that this final judgment has been the fruit of the close collaboration of these two countries, and the issuance of the judgment took only 3 days (an appeal was presented by the defense on March 5th, received the following day, then was in the hands of the competent judges on March 23rd, and the sentence signed on March 26th!!!).

Frente a las crecientes medidas de excepción por el Covid-19, en Porto Alegre salimos a colar unos afiches, para que el miedo no sea el único estímulo en las calles.
Porque sabemos que cuando el poder dice preocuparse por nosotros, necesitamos urgentemente desconfiar de él.
La normalidad que defienden, en estos tiempos de pandemia, saldrá triunfante de ella, con un control propio de un estado de guerra, impuesto en nombre de la salud y seguridad. Así, para nosotrxs, lxs anárquicxs, es imposible defender esa normalidad, no defenderemos una vida de miseria. Por eso, no retrocedemos al colmo de fomentar plataformas alternativas, consumos alternativos, espiritualidades alternativas, lecturas alternativas, sumisión alternativa que ayuden a pasar la cuarentena online.

The heretic, like the bandit, knows that the loss of his freedom takes him irremediably to the gallows. What awaits him is a tribunal that will ask him about his actions. A court that will exercise its power and absolute reason in the name of God, the People, the Kingdom and the State. Power and reason are acts of authoritarian syncretism developed throughout the course of the centuries by the proprietors of the Earth, the Sea and the Sky. Therefore the individualist anarchist – who is at the same time heretic and bandit – is aware that his conviction on power and reason takes them to the stake. Like a moth, they seek light and succumb. Like Icarus, they fly high and the Sun melts their wings. Like Prometheus they steal the fire of the gods for themself and for the others; like him.
The anarchist’s drama is his passion for freedom, his unrelenting search for accomplices, whom he rarely finds. She/he despises the conformism of the herd, the cowardice of the crowd, the dogmatism of every faith.
Any priest – of every ‘ism’ – hates her because they can’t be controlled, she/he doesn’t obey him, he/she doesn’t listen to him; and when he/she can, she/he raises their voice to attack the slightest form of power and authority. Sometimes these solitary avengers throw a bomb or plunge a dagger with the intent – always – of sowing chaos into the order of reason, rigorously established as law or supreme truth. At other times, they mingle with discontent with the intent to trigger insurrections. (more…)

NOCHE NEGRA DE NEGROS AUGURIOS
“La noche ya ha avanzado. No hace tanto frío para toda la ropa que oscurece nuestra imagen, pero eso no importa, el viento refresca nuestro rápido avance. Estamos a tiempo. Todo hasta el momento va bien. Estamos solos, solos como nunca y como siempre. Por las calles sombrías y maltrechas rodeamos la fábrica de carceleros. Nos acercamos. La próxima parada está cerca. En mi mente repaso el plan acordado…”
– “Un saludo de Libertad” – (1)
Tras un día feriado que anticipaba para muchxs un largo fin de semana, la ciudad de Santiago se iba durmiendo en la fría madrugada del 22 de mayo de 2009. Un sector de Avenida Matta permanecía en quietud, lejos de las luces y bullicio de locales comerciales. Solo dos ciclistas avanzan como difusas siluetas para diferentes cámaras de seguridad.
El avance se interrumpe cuando las siluetas se separan y una de ellas se baja de la bicicleta para arreglar algo en su mochila. Un gran destello corta entonces la filmación.
El ruido de una potente explosión hace eco entre las calles, la confusión despierta el lugar, lanzando las alertas policiales.
En la mitad de la calle Ventura Lavalle, casi en la esquina con Artemio Gutiérrez, un cuerpo ya sin vida está envuelto en una estela de pólvora, a un costado un revólver -con una sola bala en la nuez- más allá una bicicleta negra espera para continuar el viaje. A solo metros se encuentra la Escuela de Gendarmería, lugar donde los carceleros reciben adoctrinamiento y especialización. (more…)

Ardire, Scripta Manent, Operation Buyo … Do they mean anything to you? These are only a few of the police judicial “operations” that our “clan” has lived on its own skin for being and remaining anarchists to the extreme consequence.We are a nomadic clan that goes from country to country in search of accomplices who practice anarchism without asking for approval or consensus, who act without worrying about the “politically correct” discourse (so much in vogue in our times) that haunts our little shops today. We are also not interested in “aesthetics”, but “ethics”, the practical, the real… (more…)
