On March 10 / 2020, the prison supervisory magistrate decided to reduce Lisa’s freedom of movement as she was “enjoying” semi-liberty (“tercer grado”, i.e. out in the daytime, weekends and other permits) by applying the 100.2, a condition that refuses exits at weekends and during the week unless justified for reasons of work.
This decision is the result of the appeal filed by the prosecutor of the Audiencia Nacional [National Court] last November asking for a return to “segundo grado” (or no chance to get out of prison), appealing to the fact that the comrade had not denied her anticapitalist and anarchist ideology.
Lisa’s lawyer appealed.
Libertá per Lisa e per tuttx!
Fuoco alle carceri !
Update on the situation of the persecuted comrades in Madrid, for the attack on a Bankia ATM (Spain)

The persecution of anarchist solidarity.
On October 29, 2018 in Madrid, two anarchist companions were detained, in their respective homes, on charges of property damage.
Specifically they are accused of damaging with fire a Bankia ATM on April 11, 2018 in solidarity with the anarchist prisoner Lisa, who was convicted of a bank robbery in Aachen (Germany).
The companions went to court on October 30, 2018 and they were released pending trial. During that year the classification of the offense was as a misdemeanor, however, in November of 2019, after the prosecution appeal, the crime was again classified as normal, giving rise to the possibility that they will be condemned to prison. Currently the investigation has already closed and they are waiting for the prosecution to present the indictment.
This is another one of the many attacks that the State carries out against anarchism, beyond the facts, without entering into terms of innocence or guilt, because they are nothing more than the terms of Power to condemn and pigeonhole anyone who rebels against authority. What are now targeted are anarchist principles and practices, legitimate practices like solidarity and direct action against everything that we apply pressure to.
That is why we consider it necessary that these cases do not remain forgotten, because the work of repression feeds on this by generating misinformation regarding anarchist ideas and practices and by trying to delegitimize and demobilize them through “exemplary punishments”. Facing this continuous persecution of ideas and practices, anarchists must prevail and thus continue the offensive against the State.
Stay tuned for more information.
DEATH TO THE STATE AND LONG LIVE ANARCHY!
SOLIDARITY WITH ALL COMRADES FACING REPRESSION!

We are at war
29th of May and 19th of October of 2018: Police raids in Madrid and Palencia related to the repression against the riots of Hamburg against the G20 summit in July 2017 take place. This police operation was coordinated at an European level, with a lot of cooperation between different states. Attacks in response to these police raids happen all around Europe, and they are still happening.
29th of October of 2018: Two anarchists are arrested in Madrid accused of burning a Bankia ATM the 11th of april of that same year. This action was done in solidarity with Lisa, an anarchist who is actually in prison for robbing a bank in Germany. A lot of banks receive the solidarity of the anarchists.
25th of April of 2019: An anarchist is arrested accused of attacking VOX headquarters in Madrid with a hammer. Several political headquarters are attacked during the election campaign.
13th of May of 2019: Antiterrorist operation against the anarchist movement in Tetuán (Madrid). Two anarchists are arrested under the charge of terrorism. Police break into a house and the Espacio Okupado Anarquista La Emboscada. Different attacks in solidarity happen all around the State.
During all 2019: There is an increase of evictions of squatted spaces all around the state. Dozens of people are arrested and are waiting for trial. Attacks and riots in defence of those squatted spaces.
No rest for the Exploiters.
No rest for the Power.
No peace for the State.

During the night of 21-22 January, a Vinci van was set on fire in the 20th arrondissement of Paris (rue Gambon).
Vinci builds prisons (and other shit, the open-air prison, made of misery, exploitation and control).
It is thought that it is urgent to revive a conflicting practice against the prison system, the prisons, those who build them, those who make them exist.
As a beautiful communiqué from Madrid puts it, “how can we not act, in an era of theoretical and practical disarmament of revolutionary forces?”.
Solidarity with those who resist, within these walls. Solidarity with those who struggle outside.
[Note: “Vinci” is a large French company that works in construction, public works and related services].

For June 11 – Solidarity for long term anarchist prisoners
Just outside the city limits of Bristol tucked away in the dark is a poultry farm (Ivy Farm) owned by P&S Mitchell LTD. Located in Whitchurch Lane, Dundry, the birds never see the light of day. Despite the CCTV, the grain silo and broiler house were both spray-painted with the words “Animal Prison”.
A new McDonalds restaurant that is not welcome is being built in Fishponds Road, but maybe the “Burger Off!” posters in local’s front windows isn’t enough. Graffiti was sprayed inside the building site – “McWork Prison”.
Vinney Green, hidden in Emersons Green on the edge of Bristol is a special secure detention unit for 10-17 year old “dangerous kids”. The unit holds up to 24 detainees. A large hole was cut in the perimeter fence and then the next inner security fence was broken through by bending back the bars, causing a second human size gap. Then the prison buildings themselves were sprayed with the words “Child Prison”, “Screws Work Here”.
Solidarity to Brian Vaillancourt who is serving a 9 year sentence in the USA for an arson of a McDonalds. To the imprisoned comrades in Italy who are fighting from inside the cells on hunger strike. To the 3 comrades arrested for bank robbery in Thessaloniki, Greece. To Lisa held in Spain. For all the imprisoned anarchists around the world.
Freedom for everyone!

On the weekend of 28th and 29th of April, 2 ATMs were burned in Vienna (Austria) as a message of solidarity with the comrade Lisa, who is imprisoned at the moment in Barcelona. She was charged for robbing a bank in Germany.
We don’t want to live in a capitalist world, in which consumption and property are forming the center of being.
An action to strengthen ourselves, so we will never stop attacking these realities in all places – against the domination of capitalism and state, against prison and all other forms of incarceration and oppression
– for sticking together and for freedom!

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…)

Wednesday, March 13, we received a call from the comrade that evening telling us that she had been transferred to Catalonia, specifically to Brians I. Her detention regime remains the same as in Soto del Real, second degree, with no intercepted communications, mail restrictions and not in isolation. We continue to encourage writing and live solidarity. New contact address:
C.P Brians I
Carretera de Martorell a Capellades, Km 23

On the night of February 18, a bank ATM in the Usera neighborhood was set on fire. This small action is a sign of encouragement for Lisa, recently moved from Germany to Madrid; for the repression of the G20; the comrades arrested in Madrid on 30 October – accused of burning another Bankia ATM – and for the comrades in Italy, recently beaten in new operations against the anarchist environments in Turin and Trento, as well as for the comrades on trial in the Scripta Manet and Panic operations.
Let the Spanish and Italian states know that anarchist solidarity will not stop. And it will be formed by more than words. Sabotage is easy and simple. In the possibilities of its reproduction is its strength.
Also, this small action serves as a contribution to the week of agitation and propaganda against gentrification, spatial capitalism and in defense of squatting.
Freedom for Lisa, freedom for all!
Long Live Anarchy!

Lisa was put in isolation following her transfer from Willich prison [in Germany] to Madrid. In a recent letter she says she has gone [from the FIES regime] to ordinary detention conditions and that she no longer has restrictions on her mail. She is well and strong.
To write to her :
C.P. Madrid V
Carretera M609, km 3,5
28971 Soto del Real, Spain.

On Friday December 21 the comrade was transferred to Madrid, to Soto del Real prison. As far as we know there are no restrictions on incoming or outgoing post, so it would be really nice if everyone were to write to her. Here is her new address:
Centro Penitenciario Madrid V
Carretera M609 km.3,5
28791 Soto del Real
