Urgent Call for Solidarity: Imprisoned Anarchist Comrade Eric King Assaulted by Guard at FCI Englewood (U$A)

Friday, June 26th, 2020

On June 18th Eric was taken into the showers while shackled and attacked. The guard took the metal detection wand and swung at each of his ankles and then when he would lift his leg this officer would swing at the other. The guard then picked Eric up and dropped him on his head onto the concrete in the shower. He woke up after loosing consciousness for 10 seconds thinking they were pouring water on his face. But it was his own blood.

Eric was transported to Swedish Medical Center and was given 6 stitches and was diagnosed with a moderate to severe concussion. They hospital would not give him the results of the scan or release it to his family or lawyer because they told him “he is government property”.

The reality is folks have been fighting for over a month to be able to get an expert in to assess Eric. We believe he is suffering from a traumatic brain injury after officers at FCI Florence kicked him in the head for 5 minutes in August of 2018. We were so hopeful that we were going to be able to get help for him and see where he is at with the mixture of trauma and brain injury he has been struggling with. His memory has been affected as well as many other aspects of his life. Officers at FCI Englewood know this. They knew that we were trying to get a medical expert in because of a head injury concern… and then they dropped him on a concrete fucking floor on his head in the bathroom while Shackled up.

‘La capacidad heurística de la Anarquía’ – Gustavo Rodriguez

Monday, June 22nd, 2020

Jack Halberstam, un conocido teórico queer, comprometido con el «proyecto antisocial» y, activo militante contrasexual, da inicio a su libro El arte queer del fracaso
i, con un exergo irreverente y divertido, tomado del capítulo 20 de la primera temporada de Bob Esponja, que invita a la reflexión:

Don Cangrejo: ¡Y justo cuando crees que has encontrado la tierra prometida, te cogen de los pantalones y te suben arriba, y más arriba, y más arriba, y MÁS ARRIBA, hasta que te suben a la superficie, dando coletazos y jadeando para respirar! Y entonces te cocinan, y te comen… ¡o algo peor!
Bob Esponja (aterrorizado): ¿Qué puede ser peor que eso?
Don Cangrejo (en voz baja): Una tienda de regalos.ii

Halberstam, conservando ciertos «aires de familia» con la perspectiva queer anarco/nihilista, establece una analogía entre los miedos que horrorizan a Bob Espoja y, nuestras amenazas cotidianas en esta muerte en vida que impone la dominación: «Bob Esponja quiere saber cuál es la alternativa a trabajar todo el día para Don Cangrejo, o a ser capturado en la red de los objetos del capitalismo cuando intenta escapar»iii. Su libro, como nos advierte desde el primer párrafo de su Introducción, «es una especie de “Guía Bob Esponja” de la vida» donde abandona el «idealismo de la esperanza». Apoyándose en la «baja teoría» que toma prestada y adapta de los estudios culturales de Stuart Hall, apuesta por la reivindicación del fracaso que «conserva algo de la maravillosa anarquía de la infancia y perturba el supuesto claro límite entre adultos/as y niños/as, entre vencedores/as y perdedores/as. Y aunque es cierto que el fracaso viene acompañado de un conjunto de afectos negativos, como la decepción, la desilusión y la desesperación, también nos da la oportunidad de utilizar esos afectos negativos para crear agujeros en la positividad tóxica de la vida contemporánea»iv (subrayado mío).

‘¿Qué sigue después de la pandemia?’ by Gustavo Rodriguez

Friday, June 12th, 2020

—Al querido Gabriel Pombo Da Silva y a todas las compañeras y compañeros secuestrados por el Estado en estos días de la plaga.

El carácter multidimensional de la «crisis» actual nos recalca que la «emergencia sanitaria» originada por la Covid-19 es solo una de sus diversas facetas. Vivimos una «crisis sitémica» –como rezan los «expertos»– donde la pandemia es el rostro visible del experimento en curso en el que se enfrentan con ahinco dos modelos de capitalismo con sus rivalidades geopolíticas. A todas luces, lo que está en crisis en este mundo tripolar (Rusia/China/Estados Unidos) es la totalidad del paradigma de dominación existente, engendrado en las entrañas del progreso con el estallido de la Segunda Revolución Industrial. O, lo que es lo mismo, la hegemonía del consenso de Washington (hoy mal llamado neoliberalismo), entendido como la voz de mando del proceso de globalización económica, cultural y política, que ha impuesto como patrón universal de gestión política a la democracia representativa (partidocracia) y, al actual modelo de expansión y acumulación de capital, como ejemplo de gestión económica.

La dominación moderna ha alcanzado su límite objetivo, generando gran escepticismo en torno al sistema y sus instituciones. Esta evidencia ha provocado una metamorfosis que está dando paso al nuevo sistema de dominación. Maquillada con la soflama del «capitalismo consciente» la nueva dominación se impone, instaurando una administración política aún más autoritaria y un capitalismo con «impacto social» mucho más regulado y centralizado, infundido en los preceptos de la Cuarta Revolución Industrial (4IR, por sus siglas en inglés);1 o sea, en la reconfiguración de la gestión capitalista en el Siglo XXI a través de la implantación de nuevas tecnologías, consolidando su infraestructura en el Internet de las cosas.

‘Censorship & Blocking Access to Courts by Federal Bureau of Prisons’ By Keith ‘Malik’ Washington (USA)

Wednesday, June 10th, 2020

‘Censorship & Blocking Access to Courts by Federal Bureau of Prisons’ By Keith ‘Malik’ Washington
Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC)

Revolutionary greetings fellow workers! Today is June 2nd, 2020. The US Department of Justice has ordered the Federal Bureau of Prisons to place their facilities on a nationwide lockdown.
The Inmate Bulletin issued to the prison population said that the nationwide lockdown was a precautionary measure in light of the recent rioting and civil unrest throughout AmeriKa.
My experience as a federal prisoner has taught me that the oppressors who run these prisons subscribe to and embrace a Reactionary Ideology. This Reactionary behavior has been on full display here at USP Pollock.
One reactionary policy which has gone unreported is the recent censorship of prisoner communications as well as the blocking of our access to courts.
Since March 13th, 2020, prisoners here at USP Pollock in Pollock, Louisiana have had no access to Law Library Materials which includes the Education Legal Law Library Computer.
It is virtually impossible for prisoners to litigate pending civil or criminal actions without access to the Law Library Computer. What is remarkable is that mostly all federal facilities within the BOP allow prisoners access to the Law Library database on our housing unit. (more…)

Solidarity statement with the uprising from Ferguson prisoner Josh Williams (U$A)

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020

#justice4georgefloyd Let’s get this trending once again. Another black man has been taken from us by white racist cops and once again they will see our power. I send my shout out to everybody out there fighting. I say to you: keep it going, the fight is going to get hard but stay in the fight. We are Michael Brown, we are Eric Garner, let’s fight. # I can’t breathe # HANDS UP DON’T SHOOT.

I want to address the nation again and those who are in power as I sit and watch the protest. I call out President Trump on his bullshit ass comment. I say to you: those people who you call thugs, those people who you call criminals, are my people. Those people who are out there and doing what they doing, they doing it out of anger, they acting out of emotion, so calling them thugs is out of the question.

You the thug, Mr. Trump, and if you got a problem with that, I’m at Pacific Missouri Eastern Correctional Center and you can come personally and talk to to me. But calling my people thugs and criminals, watch your fucking mouth when you speak on my people.

If you would do your fucking job and send these bitch ass cops to jail they wouldn’t be out there in the first place.

Second I want to call out the bitch ass cops in the streets of America. I see you and I see what the fuck y’all doing to my people and that shit not gonna fly. I’m telling you this now: KEEP YOUR FUCKING HANDS TO YOUR SELF. DON’T ABUSE ANOTHER ONE OF THOSE PROTESTERS, WHEREVER YOU ARE IN THE WORLD, BECAUSE I AM WATCHING.

To the people out there I say to you: keep up the good fight, y’all are standing y’all ground to the max and I love every bit of what y’all doing. I love everybody out there let me tell y’all: if the police try to hurt you, y’all have a right to defend yourself.

Third. I want to call out that bitch ass cop who push that young lady to the ground. Why don’t you come push me like that… Don’t touch another woman out there, and if you got a problem you can come talk to me. Just set up an interview I’ll be more than willing to accept it.

Send our brother some love and light: Joshua Williams, 1292002, Missouri Eastern Correctional Center, 18701 Old Highway 66, Pacific, MO 63069. Learn more about Josh at: https://www.freejoshwilliams.com/

U$A: June 11, 2020 statement from Eric King

Friday, May 29th, 2020

This is my sixth year in prison and has easily been the hardest. After being accused of assaulting a lieutenant on August 17, 2018, I’ve been in the SHU since. The past two years have shown me a wide scope of state brutality: physical beatings and tortures, psychological games like being kept in bare rooms with no contact to the free world, and their legal power – bringing serious new charges that could carry 20 additional years. Resistance is not a game.

During this time I’ve learned a lot; that A LOT of people get set up this way, that prison support is priceless, that they can always turn it up, and that WE can always turn it up also. Despite the harsh sanctions and restrictions, I’ve refused to be a wilting willow. Now has been the time to face them head on – whether legally with motions and pressure; casual bucking; hard bucking; leading protest for basic rights; having long talks about social, class, and prisoner consciousness; and organizing the other prisoners. Anarchists don’t hide.

One thing I couldn’t have done this without has been the outpouring of support. Fiscal support to my canteen and legal fundraiser (keep it coming pls), the uptake in letters, those who sent magazines, books and articles after we won those rights. I let me supporters and Team know this wasn’t going to be a smooth ride, that resistance is in my blood, and they’ve stuck it out. People new and long lasting have shown up when needed most. We cannot fight on the inside, without you on the outside. We are fighting cases, fighting injustice, fighting the same battles happening in the streets, inside, in close quarters.

Prisons need to be demolished, it’s a fight that can only be won on two fronts – unity inside and solidarity outside. We chop this dragon’s head off, relegate it to horror stories and museums of resistance. Together, it’s possible.

Thank you to everyone who has helped in any way, whether being kind to my partner, donating funds, showing up to trail (August 10th, see you there!).

Let’s take FTTP literal, shall we?

Until All Are Rubble,

Amazon Vans Sabotaged in Solidarity with Striking Workers by Lorenzo Orsetti Anarchist Brigade: North Carolina (USA)

Wednesday, May 27th, 2020

We are seldom compelled to claim the ways we choose to attack. We are not specialists, nor anarchists isolated from the acts of sabotage and theft that we know occur daily by employees within the Amazon monster. We generally prefer our actions to be just another strike amongst the many, adding to the already existent chorus of rage and discontent. As the crisis deepens and the feelings of isolation and helplessness appear to be sinking in, it is important to remember that one way of regaining agency in our lives is through attack and disruption.

It is not only the corona virus that is making our lives unbearable, but even more so, it is our continued daily lives under capitalism and state control. Amazon and other tech companies are exploiting the virus, accumulating unheard- of profits and pushing their nightmare tech world. Amazon claims to provide a safe future for society all the while continuing to put its lowest paid employees in danger of infection, biding their time until they can eliminate those positions completely and replace them with automation and robots.

Along with all these reasons, we chose to sneak into one of Amazon’s parking areas and slash the tires of eight delivery vans – for the sheer pleasure of feeling alive and for the continuation of resistance during a confusing time. We know this is just one drop in a vast sea, but to quote a fallen comrade, “Always remember that ‘every storm begins with a single raindrop.’ And try to be that raindrop yourself.”

In solidarity with the striking Amazon workers!

For ourselves and towards an eternal mayday for all of us!

June 11, 2020 statement from Keith “Malik” Washington (USA)

Tuesday, May 26th, 2020

Revolutionary Greetings Comrades! It is hard to craft a message of Solidarity during this time without acknowledging the suffering and loss of life of so many beautiful humyn beings.

By the time June 11th arrives we will reach over One Hundred Thousand Deaths related to the Corona Virus here in Amerika.

Much of my recent journalism and activism has been centered around Covid-19.

Specifically, I’ve been calling for the release of our Elders. I started this year off with a message of Solidarity. I collaborated with my Soul Mate and Future Wife Nube Brown. We’d Love to see the state of California grant Parole to New Afrikan Freedom Fighter and Principled leader–Sitawa Nantambu Jamaa.

As far as Anarchist prisoners are concerned, I must call your attention to the struggle of our Comrade Xinachtli in the State of Texas. Xinachtli whose Sir name is Alvaro Luna Hernandez will be eligible for Parole very soon.

Inorder to facilitate Xinachtli’s release we must ensure that he has enough Financial Support so that we can retain a Parole Attorney that will zealously advocate for Xinachtli’s Release.

Xinachtli has been subjected to Decades of Racism, Bigotry, and Oppression at the hands of Prison and State Officials in Texas. Xinachtli is a Principled Thinker and Anarchist comrade who has Earned my Respect and Support. This June 11th lets focus on BEING NUMEROUS in order to Free Xinachtli. (more…)
