We have been waiting for over a year for the trial of the Warsaw 3. Today, we send this call out for solidarity actions on the first court sitting – the 31st of May 2017.
There is also a demonstration ‘WE ARE ALL TERRORISTS’ planned for that day in front of the court in Warsaw (adress: Marszałkowska 82).
The Polish government follows the international trend to see terrorist threat everywhere. There is no better reason to fuel war economy, enhance policing tools and prepare the ground for autocracy than the figure of the enemy. Either external threat – migrants (including kids ready to commit acts of terror), or the inside threat in the form of the domestic terrorism category is at this point commonly used in the whole EU to scare the population into obedience.

On Saturday, April 8, a demonstration “Nationalism shall not pass” was organized by an anarchist collective Rozbrat, in Poznan. The protest was organized as an opposition to the growing wave of hatred, xenophobia, racism and homophobia. The goal was to show this wave as a result of the exploitation of the capitalism. The demonstration was supported by various groups and organizations, such as foreigners living in Poznan, feminist and LGBTQIA + organizations, the academic community and people of culture. There was approximately 800 people participating. The demonstration started in the city center, next to the one of the shopping centers where the racist attack on a Polish citizen of Syrian origin had taken place a few months ago. After reading off the statements “Nationalism shall not pass” and “Students and academics of Adam Mickiewicz University against nationalism and racism”, the demonstration was attacked by a few nationalists.

Ameer deported today, miserable Polish Internal Security Agency in action
Do you remember Ameer ?
We were writing about him and his situation several times, following his situation from the very beginning. Here you can find more information.
Yesterday (05-04-2017) provincial court in Przemyśl released Ameer from arrest. The court said that Ameer is staying in Poland legally, there were no reasons to arrest him. Secret documents from Internal Security Agency (an opinion on a piece of paper) didn’t prove that he was – or is – guilty of any crime. (more…)

3rd Anarchist Congress
Working People’s Day
Discussions | Meetings | Lectures | Books | Art | Gigs + more
Join us in Wrocław [PL] for the 3rd Anarchist Congress and May Day celebrations!
Kongresono is a grassroots initiative – together we try to create space for meetings and discussions, encourage dialogue within the anarchist movement and strengthen contacts between its members. We strive for integration of anarchist circles and – through the exchange of experiences and mutual education – wish to introduce and promote anarchist thought and social practice in all their various shapes and forms, reaching a wide-ranging audience.
During the two-day conference we will have a chance to examine a broad spectrum of current issues and reflect on the perspective of our future activities, their goals and possibilities for action.
On 1st May we are taking to the streets to put the theory into practice through action! By returning to the original meaning and ideals that this date represents, we refer to the long tradition of workers’ movements. Although it has been over 100 years since the beginning of the struggle for such fundamental rights as 8-hour workday, they are still being breached. On that day we shall manifest workers’ pride and call for self-organisation and solidarity.
Details about the programme and venue coming soon!
For more information and updates visit us at kongresono.bzzz.net.
* The conference will be held in Polish. For non-Polish speakers we can provide whispered interpreting (Polish → English).

The Warsaw 3 have been arrested in May and kept since then in a high security jail with very limited contact to the outside and are facing severe sentences under the new anti-terrorist and anti-anarchist laws. They are still awaiting trial.
Today during a court hearing concerning the filed complaint for the prolonged arrest of the 3 anarchists, a decision was made to release them on bail. A fee of 20 thousand PLN (4600 euro) of bail was set for each of them. If the money is transferred in a weeks time (7 days from today [14/9], until 21st of September), the arrested will be released and kept under police surveillance instead. (more…)

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…)

On the 18th of August, the court decided to continue to hold the three imprisoned anarchists for the next 3 months in custody. All of them are still in solitary confinement cells (‘N-type’ in Polish) and treated as “the most dangerous” prisoners. The trial dates are still unknown.

First hearings of the accused took place at District Prosecutor’s Office on 24th may. Marks of tortures were visible on their bodies. On 25th may, during prosecution session at district court, prosecution decided to hold them in custody for three months (that might be automatically prolonged). Since then, each of the three is detained in isolation, denied the right to communicate with relatives, during the first week of detention none of them had access to a lawyer.
Mass media in the service of the state reproduce authorities propaganda. Witch-hunt begun, creating mass hysteria and the image of the country threaten by terrorism. By doing this, the authorities and their collaborators are trying to justify the implementation of the new Anti-Terror Law. Significantly, just before the entry into force of the Act on 10th May, 23rd May and 30th May in several Polish cities a series of false bomb alarms took place, leading to evacuation of sites such as the editorial office of the press and television, shopping centers, and banks.

3 anarchist comrades accused of attempting to torch police cars, 1 beaten in custody + Open letter from anarchist groups in Warsaw (Poland)
Monday, May 30th, 2016
Update : An open letter from anarchist groups in Warsaw is published below.
Correction: Radykalne Ogrodki Dzialkowe (ROD) was attacked with a raid and searches only, there was no attempted eviction.
On the night between Sunday the 22nd & Monday the 23rd of May three comrades were detained near the car park of South Warsaw police station. Cops claim to have found an explosive device under a police car. All three comrades were taken into custody at the station and one comrade was severely beaten. The comrades refused to cooperate and denied all accusations of ‘terrorism’ and attempting to bomb the police station. The comrades received support from the anarchist community and 3 squats from Warsaw (Przychodnia, Syrena, Radykalne Ogrody Działkowe) and were provided with legal representation.
The same day police raided and tried to evict Radykalne Ogrody Działkowe squat where one of the arrested comrades lived and search for evidence. According to the “Reclaim The Fields” website: “Cops arrived between 4 and 5AM. They invaded the squat area by cutting fences and demolishing the gate with a forklift. Six undercover police invaded people’s rooms. One friend woke up and found himself surrounded by cops questioning him about his identity. They then proceeded to search the entire squat.” (more…)

Lately some anarchist comrades were on trial for occupying an empty building in Katowice, during the Anti-Congress 2015 event when anarchists organized a response to the European Economic Congress in Katowice where many influential corporations and government members from Europe and beyond gathered.
Video from the squat occupation in Katowice…
Another judicary case takes place in the city of Poznan (21.04.2016) where our comrade Kamil was on trial for insulting two police officers during their patrol near Rozbrat squat in June 2015. He was beaten by cops and accused of affront against legal power. In the same city of Poznan another comrade Łukasz is on trial accused of attacking a police patrol and sentenced for three months (27.04.2016).
Kamil is accused of fighting with police because they want to take revenge because of his activism and the many protests in which Kamil participated. Łukasz is accused of assaulting two cops during a local direct action blocking the eviction of a family living in a social apartment.
Solidarity with imprisoned and accused Polish freedom fighters, solidarity with Anti-Congress 2015 collective, solidarity with Kamil and Łukasz.
Fire to the prisons, throw cobblestones at the government, kick the government out onto the street!
