This Wednesday, three of the four young men known as the “Cleveland 4,” Brandon Baxter, Doug Wright and Connor Stevens, entered into a non-cooperating plea agreement for all counts of the charges brought against them, but not to the government’s terrorism enhancement. The Cleveland 4 Support Committee continues to support Brandon, Doug, Connor and Josh during this time.
The sentencing for these three will not occur until after a hearing scheduled for November 5th and 6th. at which point Brandon, Doug and Connor will still have the opportunity to present evidence in court regarding unlawful entrapment actions by the FBI. Their sentence could range from five years to three lifetimes, with the defense and prosecution differing over the how federal sentencing guidelines would apply. (more…)

Greetings Citizens of the United States of America –
This weekend, it was disclosed by Wikileaks the details about a system known as “TrapWire” that uses facial recognition and other techniques including high-end artificial intelligence to track and monitor individuals using countless different closed-circuit cameras operated by cities and other institutions, including private businesses. This program also monitors all social media on the internet. (more…)

This comes after similar raids in Seattle in July and earlier raids of squats in Portland.

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.
Monday, July 16th, 2012
On July 11th the support group received a message from Doug stating that he began a hunger strike on Saturday (7.7.12). The transcribed message is below.
SHARE THIS LETTER WITH ALL!!
The Fascist Pigs here at Trumbull County Jail have thrown me in solitary confinement for some completely bullshit “charges”, including “having 2 or more books”. I never heard that rule, and I’ve asked for an inmate handbook on several occasions. Also, “hoarding Personal Hygiene”. I didn’t know you could have too much soap, too much being more than one bar. WTF??! I have sent a letter telling my lawyer of this and I want people to call him a lot till this injustice is righted! I’ve also let him know that I’m going to refuse my food until this is made right! When I refuse food they will take away phone calls and ability to write letters, someone thats been in here a while told me this before. So, this might be my letter for a while, until this is fixed.
-HUNGER STRIKING FOR JUSTICE-
Freedom or Death.
Down with the Fascist Pigs.

The ideas and views expressed by Kaczynski before and after his capture raise crucial issues concerning the evolution and future of our society. For the first time, the reader will have access to an uncensored personal account of his anti-technology philosophy, which goes far beyond Unabomber pop culture mythology. The book includes a corrected edition of the “Unabomber Manifesto,” and Kaczynski’s critique of Anarcho-primitivism, and essays regarding “The Coming Revolution.”
“This book was first published by Editions Xenia under the title The Road to Revolution. Unfortunately, the Xenia edition was riddled with errors, most of which were not my fault. In this second edition, if the publisher has done his work properly, the errors have been corrected and the book has been improved in other ways.
I want to make clear that I have no control over the cover design of this book and no control over the way it is advertised and promoted. I expect it to be advertised and promoted in ways that I will find offensive. Moreover, I do not like the new title of the book.
Nevertheless, I have cooperated in the creation of this new edition and consented to the change of title because I think it is important to make the book available in its present corrected and improved form.”

From Anarchist Library:
ENGLISH / CASTELLANO
Here at the library we don’t usually publish such statements and communiques, mainly because there are plenty of other places where solidarity can be expressed. Anyway, this time we want to express our unconditional solidarity to the comrades struck by the repression in Italy and elsewhere, following the shooting of Adinolfi.
We are disgusted by the behaviour of the various organizations which chose to distance themselves from the “violent ones”, starting a media campaign to “wash” their precious acronym and their precious ideology.
Needless to say, we are disgusted by the state, which opened the hunt to the (“evil”) anarchist.
“Solidaridad con lxs compañerxs golpeadxs por la Operacion “Osadía”
Aqui en la biblioteca usualmente no publicamos declaraciones o comunicados, principalmente porque hay muchos otros lugares donde la solidaridad puede ser expresada. De cualquier forma, esta vez queremos expresar nuestra incondicional solidaridad con los compañerxs golpeadxs por la represion en Italia y en cualquier lugar, posterior al ataque a Adinolfi.
Estamos asqueadxs por la conducta de varias organizaciones las cuales escogieron alejarse de “lxs violentxs”, iniciando una campaña mediatica para “limpiar” sus queridas siglas y su querida ideología.
Está de más decir que estamos asqueadxs del estado, el cual abrio la cazeria de lxs (“malvadxs”) anarquistas.”

Note: The Cleveland 5 are imprisoned anarchists who were set up by the FBI in one of their trademark incitement/entrapment operations. The five anarchists were arrested on April 30th, 2012 by the FBI for allegedly conspiring and attempting to detonate C-4 on the State Route 82 bridge, located between Brecksville and Sagamore Hills township in Ohio. The five had been working with an FBI informant, who allegedly gave them access to the explosives and had been providing them with a variety of other services. They have been dubbed the “Cleveland 5” and are set to start trial on September 17th, 2012. Read this letter by one of their friends.
After almost two months of imprisonment, repression and an intense campaign of media demonization, the Cleveland 5 remain strong and solid in their refusal to cooperate with the FBI.
They also remain in desperate need of our support. They are getting very little contact from the outside world and four of the five defendants are being represented by public defenders. Although right now these four say they are happy with their lawyers, they also have no access to the funds necessary to offer them the legal options they so desperately need right now. We all know that “justice” basically means how much money you have. (more…)

When we took over the Vietnam Memorial on May 1, we were surrounded.
We were surrounded on all sides by the infrastructure of this world, all that sustains it beyond its expiration like a giant life support system: the buildings that house corporations, the surveillance cameras, the police, the hostile architecture of the park itself, and the highway behind us that carries the cargo –human and otherwise— from point A to point B. The police, to take but one example, were armed on that night not only with the weapons and brutality everyone gets all indignant about, but as importantly they were armed with an incredible amount of foresight, intelligence, preparation, and resources.
