On New Year’s Eve, we held a noise demo in Laval, Quebec (near Montreal). We visited two federal prisons and an immigration detention centre. Both of the federal prisons were included in the wave of expansions announced by the
government this past fall. (more…)

On December 31st 2010, a few dozen people gathered for the second annual New Years Eve noise demo outside Barton Jail in Hamilton, Ontario. Among the fierce chanting, there were fireworks set off for the prisoners on both east and west sides of the jail. A banner with a mailing address painted on it was held to invite prisoners to correspond with us. The wall of the jail was spray-painted with “TEAR THIS SHIT DOWN”. A speech was read on both sides of the jail, expressing solidarity with prisoners and explaining reasons for struggling against prison. Solidarity was expressed to the prisoners who were on strike in Georgia (USA), Roger Clement, G20 defendants in custody, and non-status migrants being held at Barton Jail.
Here is a part of that speech:
“This has been a year of increased criminalization, and the beginning of a prison restructuring by the Federal government in an attempt to keep us silent, in constant fear, and even more of us locked away. From these continued attacks on our lives, we will gather strength to fight together. Whether the prison system is reforming to be more cruel, or disguising itself as humane, we will struggle against it. Whether it’s the police and cameras in the streets, the judges in the courtrooms, the screws in jail, we will struggle against them. We strive for freedom.”
“Solidarity with everyone who fights for freedom, and all prisoners, around the world, who refuse to accept forced confinement, isolation and abuse, who dream of the day that we together destroy these walls.”
The Passion for Freedom is Stronger than all Prisons!
Cops, Screws, Murderers!

On a recent evening the Sodexo factory in Montreal, PQ was attacked with rocks and spraypaint.
Sodexo is a company which manufactures and distributes food to prisons across Canada.
This act is a retaliation against the industry and apparatus of imprisonment but also an expression of solidarity, with all prisoners but especially with Roger Clement, recently sentenced to 3.5 years for an attack on a Royal Bank of Canada, John Graham, an indigenous prisoneragainst the colonial state and Giannis Dimitrakis, jailed in Greece for his activity as an anarchist against the state, serving 25 years.
L’usine Sodexo à Montréal a étés attaqué avec des roches et du graffitti. Sodexo est une compagnie qui fabrique et distibue de la nourriture pour les prisonsà travers le Canada.
Cette action n’est pas seulement une attaque contre l’industrie de l’emprisonnement, mais aussi une expression de notre solidarité avec Roger Clement, qui vient de recevoir 3.5 ans en prison à cause d’une attaque sur une Royal Bank of Canada, avec John Graham, un prisonnier autochtone contre l’état colonial, et avec Giannis Dimitrakis, emprisonne pour 25 ans en Grèce pour son activité contre l’état en tant qu’un anarchiste.
