[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.

On August 30th, we sabotaged with paint an ATM bank, “Bancomer,” in response to the “International Week in solidarity with anarchist prisoners”, and also to commemorate the black memory of our comrade Sebastián Oversluij (Pelao angry). This act was performed also to the surprised looks of passers-by; before the futility of “the bodies of order.” This street is the most guarded by dogs of the state, not only by the steady pace of patrols from both police and military, but also from the presence of security guards from ITESM.
Ever so rabidly do we act; an act that demonstrates our hatred for their money, their economy, their social order … to their civilization. This act was not to protest any “improvement” for the “people.” This action was carried out by anarchic individuals in anti-social solidarity and complicity with our comrades in affinity who are kidnapped by the state; to bring the anarchic idea to it’s ultimate conclusion. Forward comrades, destroy all prisons! We will burn your civilization!
A strong embrace of solidarity to the companion Tamara Farias, vengeance arrived!
Comrade Sebastian Oversluij presente …!
Freedom for all anarchist prisoners
The ongoing war …

State and Media Intoxication in the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners (Spain)
Friday, August 28th, 2015
The Spanish Interior Minister of State fears an anarchist attack against prison officials this week.
Spain: A digital media site of disinformation has “uncovered” a Prisons Circular recently distributed to its workers demanding extreme measures to protect themselves against possible suspicious packages received between 23 and August 30th. The reason for this is the “discovery” by the Information Service of the paramilitary Civil Guard of the international call for solidarity with anarchist prisoners from 23 to 30 August.
According to these coppers, the poster is “much more aggressive than the last year’s” In fact, you can read the legend “fire to the prisons and jailers”, which leads them to conclude that the “main objective of the anarchist movement” at the moment are Prison Officers “or any persons related to the facilities of the General Secretariat of Penitentiary Institutions”. All because someone added “and the Jailors” to the traditional “Fire to The Prisons” slogan. (more…)

This Monday 24th of August, as every Monday, the families of the Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails have gathered at the Red Cross headquarters in Gaza City. Tens of people joined them in order to show their support, denounce the conditions that the prisoners suffer and to demand the freedom of all the Palestinians kidnapped by the occupation.
In a new proof of their solidarity with the oppressed people of the world, the Palestinian former prisoners have shown their support to all the Anarchist prisoners jailed around the world, during the second “International Solidarity Week for Anarchist Prisoners”, 23-30 August 2015. (more…)
Santiago: Breves palabras arengando ante el llamamiento internacional en solidaridad con lxs presxs anarquistas (Chile)
Wednesday, August 26th, 2015
La solidaridad anárquica, activa y combativa es el llamado abierto hacia lxs compas de acción para intensificar el conflicto contra este orden social. La realidad actual en las prisiones para nuestrxs hermanxs no es de sumisión y arrepentimiento, si no todo lo contrario; de solidaridad, memoria y lucha constante. Son muchos lxs compas que transitan firmes por ellas desde hace varios años, por lo mismo nuestro camino de guerra contra el Poder es también un guiño cómplice hacia nuestrxs hermanxs.
Un mínimo gesto de acción como es levantar barricadas llenando de propaganda el sector obstaculizado es dejarle claro a quienes transitan por ahí -como a la policía- que hay sujetxs que no olvidan a lxs presxs y la lucha misma. Lo hemos dejado claro en algunas acciones: [8/1], [3/3], [26/4] entre otras. Nuestra opción es clara y apostamos porfiadamente por ella, nadie lo puede ocultar, ni lo puede negar.
Ante esta Semana Internacional con lxs Presxs Anarquistas hay que prepararse, no puede pasar desapercibida para ningún/a compañerx antiautoritarix, ni menos para los ojos del Poder, la apuesta esta clarísima, más claro echarle agua… Palabra y Acción!!!!!
Saludamos a lxs prisionerxs anárquicxs y subversivxs que no niegan sus vínculos y se mantienen en pie de guerra contra el Estado-Kárcel-Kapital:
-Marcelo Villarroel, Freddy Fuentevilla, Juan Aliste, Carlos Gutiérrez
-Alejandro Astorga, René Sanhueza
-Hans Niemeyer Salinas
-Alfredo Canales Moreno
-Nataly Casanova, Juan Flores, Enrique Guzmán
-Javier Pino, Natalia Collado
-Sergio Álvarez, Ignacio Muñoz
-Alberto Olivares Fuenzalida
-Tamara Sol Farías Vergara
-Camila Sanhueza, Juan González [Iquique]
-Mónica Caballero, Francisco Solar [España]
¡¡¡¡¡Fuerza compañerxs: La lucha continúa!!!!!
¡¡¡¡¡A multiplicar y potenciar el ataque anarquista contra el Poder!!!!!
Atte: Algunxs Anarquistas por la Solidaridad Revolucionaria.
Gestures in memory of Sebastian Oversluij and in solidarity with imprisoned anarchist comrades (Greece)
Tuesday, August 25th, 2015
Inter Arma received and translated:
As anarchists, we stand in solidarity and complicity with the anarchist comrades who chose the path of armed confrontation with the state and capital, thus transforming words into bullets and fire and theory into a moving force for actions. The feelings of comradeship don’t allow us to forget neither anarchists prisoners, hostages in the hands of every single state, nor of course those who were killed in action. Whether they are in Greece or in Chile, Mexico, Spain or in any corner of the planet, our ideas know no boundaries, challenging any restrictions imposed on us.
Sebastian Oversluij, not wanting the state to rest assured and capital to flow unhindered, invaded on 11/12/2013 a Banco Estado bank branch in Chile, planning to expropriate it. He refused to accept the capitalist institutions, refused to respect the good-for law-abiding citizens and liberals- banking system, which holds a key role in the proper function of capitalism. The killing of the comrade that day, wasn’t executed by a random person, but by a uniformed trash, which, recognizing its role and responsibilities, pulled the trigger to protect the system that he protects and serves faithfully. The cops and the guards, like modern praetorians, take up the protection of authoritarian regimes, suppressing anyone who violates the legality, so as not to undermine authority. (more…)

Responding to the call for international solidarity with anarchist prisoners of war, on the Saturday night of August 22 we hung a banner in a busy part of the city, briefly breaking the flow of the wretched and miserable normality which the city–prison offers.
Freedom to all animals, human or non-human, fire to all prisons.
