Bristol: Vandalism of various prison workers property by Eco-anarchist vandals – FAI/IRF (UK)

Tuesday, September 13th, 2016

This is dedicated to all the very young ones, youths with no direction yet, the kids that punch out at everything. Those that hate being told what to do and hate authority, who’ve fell foul of the law, who don’t even consider anarchy. Rebels without a cause. A prison gate is a border, it is a part of the class system, crime, scarcity and resource war. They need people to control and use in private prison labour. The prisons are exploding.

HMP Bristol, Horfield – 2 cars of screws are scratched up and tyres punctured, one a black sportscar – P6 SHT.

Horfield, Bristol – 12 Oak Road, house of screw has ‘bars’ sprayed on the windows and “screw” scrawled on the house in spraypaint.

Done in the International Week of Solidarity to Anarchist Prisoners, 23-30 August.
Solidarity to the anarchists in Italy arrested in Operation Scripta Manent and to all those in the prison uprising in America, 9 September.

A-Radio: Interview on the repression against anarchists – Operation Fenix (Czech Republic)

Thursday, September 8th, 2016

Interesting interview about the Operation Fenix which gives a round-up and highlights civil anarchist positions within the anarchist movement in Czech Republic.

In the context of the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners (23.-30th of August 2016), we had the opportunity of talking to a comrade from Anarchist Black Cross (ABC) in Czech Republic. The interview gives a short summary of the repression that started in 2015 and explains the singular cases and their current development, but deals also with the problems the movement had in the beginning to show www.topphentermineonline.com solidarity. Last but not least, you get very good advice on the topic of solidarity and what to do yourselves.

Since the interview, another comrade is in prison. Lukáš Borl, who had been living underground, has been arrested by the police on September 4.

More information (in different languages) on the Antifenix website.

Length: 22:30 min

Kraków: Banner in solidarity with the Warsaw Anarchist 3 (Poland)

Tuesday, September 6th, 2016

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…)

“Sacco and Vanzetti: A journey through time” – Text by Members of CCF for Bibloteca Kaos during the International Week of Solidarity for Anarchist Prisoners (Brazil)

Sunday, September 4th, 2016

Here is a text that several imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire in Athens, Greece, wrote for an event at the squatted anarchist centre Bibloteca Kaos in Brazil.

To all comrades, to all our anarchist brothers and sisters who are present in this event organized by the anarchist library Kaos. Let our thoughts break out and travel to Brazil so as to send these few words with the hope that maybe a little, you can feel our presence beside you.

In response to the subject of the event taking place during the International Week of Solidarity to Anarchist Prisoners and on the case of Nicola Sacco and Bartholemeo Vanzetti we would like to throw in our personal and historical contribution. The Conspiracy of Cells of Fire was from the very beginning an anarchist group of direct action that aspired to an upsurge of the anarchist aggressive presence in Greece. Thus, the CCF did not hesitate to often criticize that which was believed to be preventing the generalization of this intensification. But when the oppression finally made it to our doorstep, we fully understood that we would not own up to our standards should we refuse to defend our identity, our political viewpoints and our very substance. Furthermore we could have ended up being in complete contrast with our critiques against others in the past. So seven years after the day that repression struck us, we remain at the forefront of anarchist dignity, at least so as we perceive it. We refused to dishonor ourselves in any way and defended what we believed we had to defend, still paying the price of our uncompromising attitude. (more…)

On the solidarity week for anarchist prisoners – Radio Fragmata (Greece)

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

It’s been years now that the various state agencies of repression order the conduct of investigation under the sole criterion the suspects’ political status. This is the status of the anarchist, mainly of the one who turns his/her ideas into actions, of the one that arms his/her desires and attacks state authority. So each investigation has to do with the possible prosecution of comrades according to the laws of their “democracy.”

Police prosecution that starts off with texts and extends to all possible actions is not new amongst the anarchist circles. On the contrary, there is a past record on relative prosecutions in countries such as Italy, Chile etc. where there is a strong comrade presence promoting direct action and intervention. The common goal of contemporary international police is the prevention of anarchist propaganda, anarchist action and the spreading of our ideas. For this reason, in many cases they don’t even hesitate to put aside the refined mask of “democracy” that supposedly allows “freedom of speech and ideas.” And thus, any illusion that anyone may still hold is withdrawn. Things are now clear: “anarchist action or speech is either illegal or nothing at all!” The new form of repression is currently being practiced upon many of our prisoners that find themselves under illegal restraint with accusations based on their political identity and having taken up the political responsibility for their actions as well as their organizations’.

23-30 Αυγούστου: Διεθνής εβδομάδα αλληλεγγύης στα έγκλειστα αναρχικά συντρόφια

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

Η διεθνής εβδομάδα αλληλεγγύης αποτελεί ένα κάλεσμα σε στήριξη των έγκλειστων αναρχικών που έχουν απαχθεί από τα κράτη σε τόσα μέρη ανά τον κόσμο και που δεν λυγίζουν απέναντι στην επιβαλλόμενη αιχμαλωσία.

Να φωτιστούν οι ήσυχες νύχτες και η αλληλεγγύη στ’ αδέρφια μας να γίνει πράξη με επιθέσεις, σαμποτάζ, καταστροφές ή πυρπολήσεις όλων όσων μας ελέγχουν, μας δασκαλεύουν, μας δαμάζουν και μας υποτάσσουν ή όσων αποζητούν να είμαστε απλοί θεατές ενός παρόντος εξαθλίωσης.

Γιατί μπροστά στον εγκλεισμό των ανταρτών δεν χωράει παραίτηση καμιά, παρά μονάχα η άσβεστη επιθυμία να δούμε αυτόν τον κόσμο να φλέγεται.

Φωτιά στις φυλακές και στους δεσμοφυλάκους.
Θάνατο στο κράτος και ζήτω η αναρχία.

Anarşist Tutsaklarla Uluslararası Dayanışma Haftası

Ağustos 23-30

Uluslararası dayanışma haftası dünyanın bir çok yerinde devlet tarafından hapsedilmiş anarşistlerle dayanışma göstermek için var.

Sessiz geceleri alevlerin ışığıyla aydınlatalım ve bizi kontrol eden, beyimizi yıkayan , bizi güden, bizi pasiflikle aldatan her şeye saldırı, yıkıcı sabotaj ve yakma pratiklerimizi biçimlendirerek yoldaşlarımızla dayanışma gösterelim.

Tutsaklıkla yüzleştiğimizde boyun eğmek yok. Sadece bu dünyayı yanarken görme tutkumuz için.

Hapishanelere Ateş!

Yaşasın Anarşi!

23/30 de Agosto; Semana Internacional de Solidaridad con presxs Anarquistas

Sunday, August 14th, 2016


23/30 de Agosto; Semana Internacional de Solidaridad con presxs Anarquistas

La semana internacional de solidaridad es un llamado a solidarizar con lxs presxs anarquistas secuestrados por los estados en tantos lugares del mundo y que no se doblegan ante el cautiverio impuesto.

Que se iluminen las tranquilas noches y que la solidaridad con nuestrxs hermanxs se haga praxis atacando, saboteando, destruyendo o incendiando todo aquello que nos controla, que nos adoctrina, que nos amansa y que nos hace súbditxs o que pretende que seamos merxs espectadores de un presente de miseria.

Porque ante el encierro de lxs rebeldes no cabe la resignación sino el deseo inquebrantable de ver este mundo arder.

Fuego a las cárceles y a lxs carcelerxs.
Muerte al estado y viva la anarquía.

Bristol: Vandalism of four car-transporters (UK)

Friday, August 12th, 2016

In the early hours of 6th August at Easton-in-Gordano Services, whilst the truck drivers were inactive in their cabs, 10-15 cars on four car-transporters were spray-painted causing their greedy earth-destroying companies loss of time and money infinitely larger than that we expended doing this opportunist crime.

Solidarity to all the imprisoned comrades and those on the run. Towards the international week of solidarity to anarchist prisoners – 23rd-30th August.

Wildfire: Issue 5 – August 2016 – Anarchist prison newsletter (USA)

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

[Download Issue #5] (Prints 8.5×11)

Summer is almost over but things are burning up in the prisons and in the streets. All around the United States, prisoners and comrades in the “free world” are gearing up for the beginning of coordinated anti-prison actions on September 9th, 2016. In just a few weeks, the Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners begins, marking with fire the state murder of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti on August 23. 1927, turning memory into active revolt for all anarchist combatants locked behind bars today.

In this issue of Wildfire, comrades continue the debate on reformist action that has been raging since issue 1, bring to light the presence of queer and transgender prisoners in ongoing prison rebellions, comment on recent retaliation against police, critically discuss prisoner apathy and revolt, and give a glimpse of possibilities for September 9th.

We hope that the coming months will be ones we, and our enemies, will never forget.
