June 11th: The international day of solidarity with Marius Mason and long-term anarchist prisoners. In the 15 years this tradition has been observed, June 11th has facilitated support and action inspired by imprisoned anarchists — from noise demonstrations outside of jails to letter-writing nights, from fundraisers to arson. Setting aside this day is one way of remembering anarchists who are serving long prison sentences, generating support for them, and inspiring solidarity actions.
Because social struggles phase in and out, this day is a way to make sure that our imprisoned comrades are not forgotten. Our lack of memory is partially a result of the techno-alienation of the larger culture we’re fighting against. But it’s also a product of the dynamics of the anarchist space. People become burnt out and the cycle of forgetting continues.
June 11th is a way of combating that amnesia, of trying to sustain a long-term memory in the anarchist space. Not only does this generate support for anarchists locked in the state’s prisons, it forces us to look back at what came before. Considering what previous generations did can both inspire us with ideas we’ve forgotten, and help us understand how our current practices came to be. (more…)

Revolutionary greetings on this June 11! Solidarity with all Earth warriors and anarchists behind bars!
We are up against a system of power and profit, a system which is destroying the planet and forcing the people into poverty and imprisonment. Many of us who have fought back found ourselves in the crosshairs of an extensive counter-intelligence apparatus who use trumped-up “terrorism” charges and entrapment by informants to put us in prison for years. There are many lessons from each case to consider before engaging in future work, but it is most important that we do not let the seemingly overwhelming forces of domination intimidate us into inaction and passivity.
Even those of us doing time, you know we stay bucking the system, and it brings us strength and inspiration to hear about your work in the streets, to hear about ongoing campaigns – such as the fight to stop the Bureau of Prisons from building a new maximum security federal prison in Letcher County, Kentucky, in the middle of a mountaintop removal coal processing area. This is a winnable opportunity highlighting the connections between the prison industrial complex and the exploitation of the Earth by profiteering capitalists.
But to succeed, we must consider the full range of tactics available. Everything from organizing conferences and sending books to prisoners, from lawsuits to protest marches, to hacking websites and sabotaging infrastructure. Every act of defiance counts, even if we do not immediately see the results of our efforts, because even small ripples can make big waves. Local actions have global consequences. We are spreading seeds of revolution, growing wild and free. Until we can overgrow and overthrow this system once and for all!
For the rev!

325 receives and transmits this message from anonymous anarchist hackers in the ongoing information war:
Due to the 10 year sentence handed down to anarchist hacker Jeremy Hammond in NYC yesterday Wikileaks decided to release the remaining Stratfor emails they had been sitting on for some time. Stratfor is a company that posed outwardly as a global intelligence information publisher but were in fact providing confidential intelligence services to many fucked up corporations, government and law enforcement agencies.
There are MANY emails – millions of them, but already we have found some emails of interest to the global anarchist movement, they are as follows… (more…)

Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison, Anarchist Hacker Jeremy Hammond Uses Allocution to Give Consequential Statement Highlighting Global Criminal Exploits by FBI Handlers.
Good morning. Thank you for this opportunity. My name is Jeremy Hammond and I’m here to be sentenced for hacking activities carried out during my involvement with Anonymous. I have been locked up at MCC for the past 20 months and have had a lot of time to think about how I would explain my actions.
Before I begin, I want to take a moment to recognize the work of the people who have supported me. I want to thank all the lawyers and others who worked on my case: Elizabeth Fink, Susan Kellman, Sarah Kunstler, Emily Kunstler, Margaret Kunstler, and Grainne O’Neill. I also want to thank the National Lawyers Guild, the Jeremy Hammond Defense Committee and Support Network, Free Anons, the Anonymous Solidarity Network, Anarchist Black Cross, and all others who have helped me by writing a letter of support, sending me letters, attending my court dates, and spreading the word about my case.
I also want to shout out my brothers and sisters behind bars and those who are still out there fighting the power. (more…)

On the 9th of October to coincide with the visit to Athens by the so-called ‘leader’ of Germany, Angela Merkel, we took part in a coordinated international cyber operation with our comrades from many different factions of Anonymous.
Angered at the many preemptive arrests made by the fascist Greek police force prior to the visit of Merkel, the banning of many public protests & the news that Greek uniformed pigs sympathetic to the neo-nazis of Golden Dawn had tortured and detained anti-fascist protesters, we decided action of some sort had to be taken.
As the brave street fighters of Athens battled the pigs paid by the Greek Junta to protect the so-called ‘peace’ & to prevent the people from storming the parliament; we launched massive distributed denial of service attacks against the following websites associated with the Junta :
hellenicpolice.gr (website of the National Police Force of Greece)
mfa.gr (website of the Greek Ministry of Foreign Affairs)
ydt.gr (website of the Greek Ministry of Civilian Protection & Public Order)
presidency.gr (website of the so-called Greek ‘President’)
All of the above websites were only prevented from functioning for the duration of the protests. If the Greek Junta do not respond to the demands of the people soon, next time we will wipe their entire internet presence from the face of the Earth!
We hope this small gesture of solidarity assisted the rebels of Greece in some way or at the very least let them know that they are not alone and that we are always willing to risk our so-called ‘freedom’ to assist them via whatever means our individual circumstances enable.
We would like to dedicate our part in this action to the members of the Revolutionary Organizations Conspiracy of Cells of Fire & Revolutionary Struggle who are currently facing the fascist ‘justice’ in the courts of the Junta and to all anarchist prisoners imprisoned in Greece : STAY STRONG COMRADES!!
We also send revolutionary greetings to accused #AntiSec hacker Jeremy Hammond, currently awaiting ‘trial’ in the U$A, and to our 7 arrested comrades in Turkey from the hacking collective RedHack who are facing up to 20 years prison for the bullshit charge of being members of a ‘terrorist organization’…YOU ARE IN OUR THOUGHTS & IN OUR HEARTS WHENEVER WE TAKE ACTION!!
