Seattle: Banner drop in solidarity with Tacoma, WA hunger strike (USA)

Sunday, April 13th, 2014

325 receives and transmits:

On Friday April 11th, three banners were dropped from different highway overpasses in Seattle. This is in solidarity with the hunger strikers held in the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma, WA, a facility that currently imprisons and deports immigrants from around the United States. This is also for those on hunger strike in a similar facility in Texas, also run by GEO.

The banners read as follows:

Destroy Borders, Chinga la Migra;
Solidarity with NWDC Hunger Strikers;

and
Set Fire to ICE, Solidarity with the Hunger Strikers.

With this small act we send strength to those who refuse the authority of their jailers. We send the message that they are not alone and their struggle is not isolated.

Death to the Jailers,
Fire to the Prisons!

Seattle: Department of Corrections Office Vandalized (USA)

Wednesday, March 5th, 2014

On Saturday [1 March 2014] the Department of Corrections Office in Seattle was paint bombed and had graffiti written on it with the message, “Destroy All Prisons (A) FTP (A)”. The office is a site of the prison society we all live in. The grand jury in Seattle has for the last year and a half embodied that prison society we struggle against. This action is meant as a small gesture against that repression and in solidarity with those who struggle against it. Fuck the DA, the FBI, and the grand jury.

5E3 : Seattle solidarity demo at Mexican consulate for the arrested comrades accused of molotov attack (USA)

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

This afternoon, February 11th, there was a demonstration at the Mexican consulate in Seattle, in solidarity with Carlos Lopez and other prisoners of the Mexican state. A group of about 20 people chanted Carlos’ name as well as anti-border and anti-prison slogans, and a synopsis of the case and a statement by Carlos were read over a megaphone. There were two banners that said “Solidarity to all captured comrades” and “Solidaridad es mas fuerte que los carceles! Presxs a la calle!” We stood around and handed out leaflets to passers-by for about 15 minutes, then went inside the consulate and read Carlos’ statement again, and left and dispersed on our own accord.

Yesterday (10/10/12) Leah-Lynn Plante was taken into custody in Seattle for what could be up to 18 months or more. She is joining Matt Duran and Kteeo Olejnik as the third imprisoned grand jury resistor. Write to Leah at the address below.

Here is a video and text of her most recent statement:

On the morning of July 25th, 2012, my life was turned upside down in a matter of hours. FBI agents from around Washington and Oregon and Joint Terrorism Task Force agents from Washington busted down the front door of my house with a battering ram, handcuffed my house mates and me at gunpoint, and held us hostage in our backyard while they read us a search warrant and ransacked our home. They said it was in connection to May Day vandalism that occurred in Seattle, Washington earlier this year. (more…)

Seattle: Bank Smashed in Solidarity with Doug Wright & Gabriel Pomba Da Silva (USA)

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

From anarchistnews:

18 July 2012

A Wells Fargo in Seattle had some of its windows broken last night as a small gesture of solidarity with Gabriel Pomba da Silva who is currently imprisoned in Germany and is facing renewed repression under Operation Ardire and with Doug Wright, one of the Cleveland 5, who recently began a hunger strike in Trumbull County Jail in Ohio. Lets not forget our comrades behind bars.

Note: Doug Wright is now out of isolation and is off hungerstrike.
