Solidaridad directa con lxs anarquistas presxs

—A Gabriel Pombo Da Silva, Dinos Giagtzoglou, Alfredo Cospito, Anna Beniamino, Nicola Gai, Marco Bisesti, Christos Rodopoulos, Lisa Dorfer, Michael Kimble, Eric King, Mónica Caballero, Francisco Solar y, todas las compañeras y compañeros anarquistas en prisión alrededor del mundo.

«Para mí elegí la lucha […] Enfrenté a la sociedad con sus mismas armas, sin inclinar la cabeza…»

Severino Di Giovanni
«La quema de los ateos, la reprobación de los homosexuales o incestuosos,
la segregación de los “locos” y el encarcelamiento de los forajidos son
sólo formas diferentes de integrar y reprimir a cualquiera que vaya más allá
de los límites establecidos por la norma […]
Las prisiones, los asilos, las terapias democráticas y los tratamientos ortopédicos
son sólo diferentes maneras de aplicar la misma fe en un modelo.»

Canenero, número 3, 11 de noviembre de 1994.

La semana internacional de solidaridad con lxs anarquistas encarceladxs es fruto de varios grupos de la Cruz Negra Anarquista (CNA) resueltos a establecer una fecha en el calendario en solidaridad con nuestros compañeros y compañeras secuestradas por el Estado. Desde el verano de 2013, esta loable iniciativa nos ofrece la oportunidad de reafirmar nuestro incondicional apoyo y, de enviarle un contundente mensaje al enemigo, corroborando que nuestros hermanos y hermanas no están solas. Este año, además, podremos dedicar este esfuerzo al compañero Stuart Christie, que recién nos deja.

Incansable difusor de la lucha anárquica y artífice de la resurrección de la CNA en los años sesenta del siglo pasado, Stuart impulsó la solidaridad con nuestrxs presxs en aquel escenario adverso que les invisibilizaba mediante la imposición hegemónica de la vulgata marxista, reprobando sus luchas desde una poderosísima maquinaria de amplificación ad infinitum –con sede en Moscú y sucursales en La Habana– que solo reconocía a sus aliados estratégicos como «presos políticos»1 o «prisioneros de guerra»2 y condenaba al ostracismo cualquier otra acción que no se ubicara en la lógica de la «Guerra Fría» y las operaciones financiadas desde las oficinas de contra-inteligencia del llamado «socialismo realmente existente».

Direct solidarity with imprisoned anarchists

Gabriel Pombo Da Silva, Dinos Giagtzoglou, Alfredo Cospito, Anna Beniamino, Nicola Gai, Marco Bisesti, Christos Rodopoulos, Lisa Dorfer, Michael Kimble, Eric King, Monica Caballero, Francisco Solar and, all the anarchist comrades in prison around the world.

“For me, I chose the struggle […] I faced society with its same weapons, without bowing my head…”

Severino Di Giovanni
“The burning of atheists, the reprobation of homosexuals or incestuous people, the segregation of “madmen” and the imprisonment of outlaws are just different ways of integrating and repressing anyone who goes beyond the limits established by the norm […].
Prisons, nursing homes, democratic therapies and orthopedic treatments are just different ways of applying the same faith in a model.”

Canenero, number 3, November 11, 1994

The international week of solidarity with imprisoned anarchists is the fruit of the efforts of several groups of the Anarchist Black Cross/Cruz Negra Anarquista (ABC/CNA) who were determined to set a date of solidarity in the calendar for our comrades who have been kidnapped by the State. From the summer of 2013, this laudable initiative offers us the opportunity to reaffirm our unconditional support and to send a strong message to the enemy, confirming that our brothers and sisters are not alone. This year, moreover, we will be able to dedicate this effort to comrade Stuart Christie, who has just left us.
A tireless disseminator of the anarchic struggle and architect of the resurrection of the ABC/CNA in the 1960s, Stuart promoted solidarity with our prisoners in that adverse scenario that made them invisible through the hegemonic imposition of the Marxist vulgate [trans. Latin version of the ‘Holy Bible’], condemning their struggles from a very powerful machinery of amplification ad infinitum -with headquarters in Moscow and branches in Havana- that only recognized their strategic allies as “political prisoners “1 or “prisoners of war”2 and condemned to ostracism any other action that was not located in the logic of the “Cold War” and the operations financed from the counter-intelligence offices of the so-called “really existing socialism”.

‘Cronaca Sovversiva’ – A 90 años de la ejecución de Sacco y Vanzetti (Chile)

Friday, August 25th, 2017

Cronaca Sovversiva…
A 90 años de la ejecución de Sacco y Vanzetti

En EE.UU, un 23 de agosto de 1927, hace exactamente 90 años, morían en
la silla eléctrica, Nicola Sacco y Bartolomeo Vanzetti, dos inmigrantes
italianos, solidarios, anárquicos de acción. Tras un largo y extenuante
proceso judicial de 7 años, fueron condenados a muerte acusados de robo
y homicidio contra un importante empresario.

La detención, juicio, apelaciones, revisiones y condena, concentraron el
interés de las diferentes colectividades anárquicas del mundo, en
multiformes gestos de solidaridad, las más hermosas expresiones del
apoyo y la fuerza común se hicieron presentes. Nadie quedó indiferente y
había una urgencia por manifestar la solidaridad, tratando de rescatar a
los compañeros del engranaje asesino del Estado.

La solidaridad como una praxis real y concreta supo manifestarse en este
largo proceso, aún con todo en contra, con las mayores adversidades y
necesidades, gracias al aporte, la voluntad y el compromiso de lxs
compañerxs anárquicxs. (more…)

Call out – International Week of Solidarity to Anarchist Prisoners, August 23-30 – 2017

Friday, July 21st, 2017

International solidarity week for anarchist prisoners

This year, the International solidarity week for anarchist prisoners will be spent for the fifth time in 23rd to 30th August and we come stronger than ever!

Some political prisoners are already supported, but far from all of them. Also, the supported are usually involved in authoritarian politics and not grassroots activities. Anarchist prisoners are not often well-known people, even though they might be long term activists. Their ways to fight back oppressors and wrongdoings are not necessarily following the current laws of their location, which is judged by some authoritarian organisations. The vast amount and diversity of cases of anarchist prisoners is surprising to many.

We wanted to choose a week, so that it would be easy as possible to organise different kinds of expressions of solidarity, which would be supported by one another. The beginning of the week was chosen to be the execution date of Sacco and Vanzetti, two Italian-American anarchists, in 1927. They were convicted with very little amount of evidence, and many still consider that they were punished from their anarchist views.

Welcome to join!
Solidarity can express itself in many forms.

Please report us your done actions to the address tillallarefree@riseup.net. You can also announce your event in advance in the same address, we list them on our page http://solidarity.international/. From the pages you can also find examples and tips of actions and support mail to anarchists, links to prisoner lists and more.

“Sacco and Vanzetti: A journey through time” – Text by Members of CCF for Bibloteca Kaos during the International Week of Solidarity for Anarchist Prisoners (Brazil)

Sunday, September 4th, 2016

Here is a text that several imprisoned members of the Conspiracy of Cells of Fire in Athens, Greece, wrote for an event at the squatted anarchist centre Bibloteca Kaos in Brazil.

To all comrades, to all our anarchist brothers and sisters who are present in this event organized by the anarchist library Kaos. Let our thoughts break out and travel to Brazil so as to send these few words with the hope that maybe a little, you can feel our presence beside you.

In response to the subject of the event taking place during the International Week of Solidarity to Anarchist Prisoners and on the case of Nicola Sacco and Bartholemeo Vanzetti we would like to throw in our personal and historical contribution. The Conspiracy of Cells of Fire was from the very beginning an anarchist group of direct action that aspired to an upsurge of the anarchist aggressive presence in Greece. Thus, the CCF did not hesitate to often criticize that which was believed to be preventing the generalization of this intensification. But when the oppression finally made it to our doorstep, we fully understood that we would not own up to our standards should we refuse to defend our identity, our political viewpoints and our very substance. Furthermore we could have ended up being in complete contrast with our critiques against others in the past. So seven years after the day that repression struck us, we remain at the forefront of anarchist dignity, at least so as we perceive it. We refused to dishonor ourselves in any way and defended what we believed we had to defend, still paying the price of our uncompromising attitude. (more…)

Screening of "Sacco & Vanzetti" film in Riga (Latvia) + Sacco and Vanzetti… a 87 años de su ejecución, con la memoria anárquica intacta ($hile)

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

From Riga, Latvia:

On August 24, 19:00, in the bar ‘Chomsky’ a film about “Sacco and Vanzetti” from 1971 was shown. After there was a discussion of the film and a talk about the activities of the Anarchist Black Cross and anarchist prisoners of Russia and Belarus.



This is a text written by Biblioteca Antiautoritaria Sacco y Vanzetti in Santiago, $hile, on the 87th year since the murder of Sacco and Vanzetti by the American State:

SACCO Y VANZETTI… a 87 años de su ejecución, con la memoria anárquica
intacta

“El enemigo nos quiere muertos y nos tendrá muertos para defender el
privilegio y la tiranía, para humillaros, para acobardaos, para
venceros, destruiros y encadenar los pueblos al carro de su esclavitud
(…) Y este mismo enemigo, clava sus inmundos tentáculos en la carne de
todos los pueblos de la Tierra, prepara el más grande militarismo del
mundo y se apresta a esclavizar la entera humanidad. Hay que aplastarle
la cabeza..”.

Bartolomeo Vanzetti

El 23 de Agosto de 1927 en Massachusetts, EEUU, son ejecutados en la
silla eléctrica Niccola Sacco y Bartolomeo Vanzetti, dos inmigrantes
italianos y reconocidos anarquistas. Tras 7 años de juicio, son
encontrados culpables de robo con homicidio y se los condena a morir
electrocutados.

El caso de los compañeros Sacco y Vanzetti es quizá el que ha tenido
mayor repercusión internacional, es sin duda un caso emblemático por
todo el proceso judicial que los mantuvo en prisión y que generó
reacciones a nivel mundial. (more…)

About "Anti-Judicial Anarchism", Max Stirner, Luigi Galleani, CCF & More (Mexico)

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

Here is an English translation of an article from the journal Conspiracion Acrata from Mexico referring to the idea of “Antiguiridismo Anarchico”. We hope you like it.

“Antigiuridismo Anarchico” which translates to “Anti-Judicial Anarchism” is a concept which has been used throughout anarchist history to define the attitude of a radical and total rejection of the concept and practice of the “justice” of the State, or as otherwise said – the judicial methods of the State including defence through a lawyer. This attitude or concept is or should be something normal within the anarchist movement but there are few companer@s who have put it into practice for diverse reasons or strategies.

Antigiuridismo Anarchico is the rejection of declaring a position to the State in front of the court or contributing to the circus of the State. Often the declarations of those who position themselves in this attitude are only directed as a dialogue or explanation to the compañer@s of their movement. This attitude is the rejection of any legal resources through which one could obtain “freedom”. (more…)
