Long time civilian prisoner Natalia Pshenkina takes on struggle against the Swedish prison authorities with hungerstrike.
Natalia was sentenced for murder in 2005 and got in contact with political comrades in prison in 2011. She then contacted the current prisoner solidarity group Fånggruppen Syd – Prisoners group of southern sweden, for help with legal assistance. Natalias case has since been worked on as a civilan non-political side case on a personal level by
individuals within the former group. Since 2018 Natalias case has more and more taken the form of organizing and fighting by juridical means for better conditions in the Swedish prison system. Natalia took this fight at the prison where she was earlier placed, KVA Ystad, in southern most of todays Sweden. The condition at KVA-Ystad has been growing worse for a long time by reasons such as over crowding and ending of all activities for prisoners due to severe lack of funding. (more…)

In the early hours of September 3, 2019, all of the prisoners on a small mink farm in Hölkemåla, Blekinge, Sweden, escaped from the cages. In total about 1500 persons managed to get free.
We gave a helping hand by disassembling the fence of the farm and then opening all the cage doors. We removed parts of the fence using a wrench to ensure a way out. The fur farm was situated right next to a lake where we hope that as many as possible now get to live.
In a world where freedom exists only in moments of rebellion and insurrection, we still think that the possibility of a life in the forest and lake is quite the opposite of that in a cage. We do recognize that the already destroyed eco-systems and colonised nature is nothing like a dream, but since it is all that we have it is where we will go from our imprisoned existences. A passion for freedom is what drove us to this hidden killing facility to increase the freedom for all of us. Our desire to share this moment of freedom with the minks is rooted in solidarity and love as well as anger and hatred towards those who dominate us and try to steal our lives.
We strongly believe that there is no limit to the things we can do, all we need is to make up our minds and pick a target.
We send our love to Eric King, Matthias in Switzerland and all other prisoners around the world!

On the night of July the 8th a car parked outside the office of SCA in Östersund in mid Sweden was torched. SCA is one of the companies responsible for the clearcutting and destruction of oldgrowth forests in Sweden.
Their terror of the wild will have consequences. We will no longer stand by silent and watch their eco-terrorism destroy the last wild forests in the north of Europe.
With fire and sabotage we will hunt you. Destroy the one who destroys.
For the wild!

On the 17th of November, the leaders of the nations of the European Union gathered in Gothenburg for the EU summit. The EU maintains its external borders vigilantly, leading to countless deaths of people trying to enter Europe. Internally, the border controls returned during the latest “refugee-crisis”, and at the Swedish border they are still in place. Borders and deportations protect the rich and powerful of the European societies, at the price of murder and incarceration, and they manifest themselves clearly in passports and police.
The police willingly do the insidious work of controlling the borders and carrying out deportations. At the same time, the EU gives the police forces of the member states extended possibilities for repressive cooperation, enabling them to exchange information and issue arrest warrants for sought-after people across the EU.
The police mobilized massively to protect the EU summit in Gothenburg, so we decided to strike somewhere else, away from their attention.
For these reasons, and many more, we attacked the passport office of the police in Malmö with rocks on the night of the EU summit.
We send warm rebellious greetings to those who fight against borders and nationstates and to those who fought the police on the 30th of September when Nazis were marching in Gothenburg, especially to those who are now jailed or going to trial for the events on that day.

OVER 20 SIMULTANEOUS PROTESTS THROUGHOUT THE UK AND AROUND THE WORLD TO END IMMIGRATION DETENTION CENTRES
THOUSANDS OF ACTIVISTS TOOK PART IN A COORDINATED TRANSNATIONAL DAY OF SOLIDARITY WITH DETAINEES; 190 DETAINEES ON HUNGER STRIKE IN HARMONDSWORTH DETENTION CENTRES
A coalition of groups from the UK and around the world joined today (Saturday 7 May) a mass simultaneous protest in 15 detention centres, calling to end immigration detention centres. An international coalition joined forces with groups from all around the UK as well as groups from the US, Spain, Greece, The Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Iceland, N. Ireland, Belgium, France and Italy. In the UK, thousands took part in the protest in solidarity with the 30,000 adults and children in detention. Protesters held demonstrations at St Pancras train station, held noise demonstration in various detention centres, flew kites so detainees can see them beyond the high walls, danced, sang songs and called for the immediate release of those held against their will without judicial oversight, a time limit, or adequate access to legal support, translation, and healthcare.

7 May : Transnational Day of Solidarity with People in Detention + Protest against Detention Centres
Tuesday, April 26th, 2016
The last few years have seen an immense rise in protests inside and outside of detention centres. On Saturday May 7th, simultaneous demonstrations will be held around the UK and beyond, to protest against the existence of immigration detention centres and show solidarity with the 30,000 adults and children who are being detained against their will under the Immigration Act every year in the UK – without judicial oversight, a time limit, or adequate access to legal support, translation, and healthcare. We will come together with people inside detention to demand the closure of all detention centres and an end to border and migration controls!
May 7th is part of a wider transnational campaign to shut down detention centres and end the inherently abusive and violent system of immigration detention that criminalises, detains, and imprisons people simply because they have chosen or been forced to migrate. Actions also take place in solidarity with wider struggles against borders and migration controls and with people who are living in detention without walls, from Calais to Idomeni. So far actions have been planned across the UK and in The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium and Iceland. (more…)

Our comrade Karl was sentenced with Ebba to prison for animal rights activities, send him all the support you can! You can also send him magazines and books! Karl is a strong anti-racist, anti-fascist, anti-capitalist, animal-rights warrior who did what he could to combat the disgusting fur industry in Sweden and other oppressions. Situation is tough for the prisoner so we urge people to send support. Postcards, letters, etc.

Today, Monday the seventh of April, our comrades in Skövde, Sweden, were sentenced. The comrade who’s still kept in captivity was sentenced to 2 years and 6 months in prison. One of the comrades who were released last week was sentenced to 1 year in prison. The other, with the more talkative approach in court, who also was released last week was sentenced to a probationary sentence. Yet two comrades, also they being on the outside, were sentenced to suspended sentences.
Even though the prosecutor creep did’nt get its will done, we see no reason to celebrate. Our comrades have still spent half a year – more and less – in the disgusting pre-trial isolation cells and they have still their sentences to either serve or evade.
Prison is and will, as long as this society continues to exist, be one of the worst weapons in the State arsenal. A weapon they are using every day in the social war against us and anybody who doesn’t fit in to their disgusting frames of Normality. Prison is however not an end station but a continuation of our struggle against this reality. To maintain a struggle without including the prison and justice system as targets, is to shoot oneself in the foot.
Fire to the prisons! Strength to our comrades!

Late 14th and early 15th of October 2013, five comrades were arrested and imprisoned in Skövde, Sweden, suspected for over twenty different attacks on furfarmers and the fur industry as well as liberations of minks. Three of the comrades were later considered to be main suspects and the two others were released, however still being suspects. Close upon the trial startup end of January, yet another person was detained for involvement in some of the suspected attacks but this person was also released, still being a suspect.
During their interrogations the three main suspects kept their mouths shut, besides one comrade who took the responsibility for a suspected arson against a garage belonging to a fur farmer.
Seeing the media potential, the disgusting ex-minister of justice Thomas Bodström, nowadays a populistic lawyer, took it on himself to represent all the fur farmers in the court process. (more…)

In the early morning of the 19th of November, the cops national special forces and the SÄPO (~ equivalent of MI5,FBI) organized a raid called Operation Eskil. The targets were a group of anti-fascists in different parts of the middle of Sweden. Some people were arrested, accused of attacking nazis and in several house raids the cops claimed to have found a lot of weapons and material for building incendiary devices.
Even though we do not share the socialist views with the anti-fascists, we do share a common enemy and the enemy of our enemy is a friend.
In response to the cops attack on our co-combatants, we decided to attack the cops. In the evening of the 19th we smashed the entrance windows of a cop station in Växjö, south of Sweden.
A modest action, non the less a promise of what will come when they attack our comrades.
