Hi, my name is Steven Jablonski. I am anarchist and Grand Jury Resister. After living in exile in Canada for about a year and a half, I returned to United States about a month ago. My return was not meant to be secretive but I felt the need to take some time for myself to collect my thoughts and decompress before I releasing an official statement. I now feel ready to break the silence and clarify some of the confusion around me being subpoenaed for the Seattle Grand Jury investigating May Day 2012 in Seattle. (more…)

On Saturday [1 March 2014] the Department of Corrections Office in Seattle was paint bombed and had graffiti written on it with the message, “Destroy All Prisons (A) FTP (A)”. The office is a site of the prison society we all live in. The grand jury in Seattle has for the last year and a half embodied that prison society we struggle against. This action is meant as a small gesture against that repression and in solidarity with those who struggle against it. Fuck the DA, the FBI, and the grand jury.

Last Thursday night a Seattle Bank of America had its windows and walls paint bombed. This was done in solidarity with those grand jury resisters who remain in forced exile or on the run. Fire to the prisons and the borders!

In late July of 2012 our friend Steve received a phone call from a man identifying himself as a FBI agent. He was told that a subpoena had been issued for him to appear before a federal Grand Jury investigating the vandalism of the Kenzo Nakamura Court of Appeals*. This phone call happened in conjunction with three other people being served subpoenas in Olympia and Portland, as well as house raids in Portland. Although Steve is a well known anarchist in the Northwest, who has been subjected to state harassment before, up until this moment he has not been served or indicated as a suspect of the ongoing investigation against anarchists.

The fire still burns. With the news of the release of two of the three Grand Jury Resistors ( Matt and it warmed our hearts but also filled them with anger. The state has taken parts of their life they will never get back. We also have not forgotten about the third resister (Maddy) and all the other nameless ones.
So last night, we decided to send a message that the release of our comrades will not stop our attacks on financial infrastructure, government and all others who oppress and take away our freedom. An unsuspecting bank, CIBC, had a Molotov cocktail thrown at it. The flames brought new life to our minds and destruction to the bank and a sense of insecurity to the Vancouver Police and the banks investors that they will never be able to stop us and that our attacks will increase.
The fire will always burn. Last night, we let that fire burn a financial institution that profits off the lives of the workers and foreclosures of families homes. Let this inspire anarchists and other radical elements of Vancouver, Coast Salish Territory, to attack and to attack now. We cannot be stopped.
Love, to all comrades from CST Vancouver

We have decided to celebrate Black (banner) Friday in Toronto with this action of solidarity with our brothers and sisters currently being repressed by the state, as punishment for non-collaboration with the mechanisms of “justice”. Through our actions we show our comrades will not be forgotten, and will return stronger knowing their resistance had motivated others to action around the globe. You may target us, but we shall continue the struggle, and will return each time with a deeper understanding of, and conviction in, the inadequacies of the state and the capitalist framework, you thrust upon us.
Fire to the prisons.

Yesterday (10/10/12) Leah-Lynn Plante was taken into custody in Seattle for what could be up to 18 months or more. She is joining Matt Duran and Kteeo Olejnik as the third imprisoned grand jury resistor. Write to Leah at the address below.
Here is a video and text of her most recent statement:
On the morning of July 25th, 2012, my life was turned upside down in a matter of hours. FBI agents from around Washington and Oregon and Joint Terrorism Task Force agents from Washington busted down the front door of my house with a battering ram, handcuffed my house mates and me at gunpoint, and held us hostage in our backyard while they read us a search warrant and ransacked our home. They said it was in connection to May Day vandalism that occurred in Seattle, Washington earlier this year. (more…)
