According to info received, Tamara Sol was found guilty by the court and sentenced to 7 years and 800 days (9 years and 2 months in total) in prison. Recall that Tamara Sol is the comrade who was arrested after a BancoEstado security guard was shot in revenge for the death of Sebastián Oversluij Seguel.
After the trial, there was clashes between Sol family’s and the tribunal guards (gendarmes).
However, there still exists an appeal opportunity against the sentence.
More news will be published by other comrades in some blogs.

In summer 2013, we interviewed the Turkish group Revolutionary Anarchist Action (Devrimci Anarşist Faaliyet, or DAF) about the uprising that began in Gezi Park. At the end of summer 2014, we learned that DAF was supporting the fierce resistance that residents of the town of Kobanê in northern Syria were putting up to the incursion of the fundamentalist Islamic State.

One of our favorite longtime anarchists has passed away.
Howard Ehrlich, of Baltimore, Maryland, was an American sociologist and anarchist activist. Formerly a professor at University of Iowa, he was co-founder of Research Group One that conducted research on behalf of activist organizations in the US. Subsequently, he co-founded a collective that produced a successful syndicated radio program called the Great Atlantic Radio Conspiracy, a free school, and in 1980 he co-founded a peer-reviewed journal called Social Anarchism, of which he was Editor-in-Chief until his passing.

New wave of solidarity with detained anarchists in Minsk (Belarus)
Five actions in a row were organised on January 29 in support of anarchists, arrested in Minsk for alleged resistance to the police about a week ago. In fact all of them were detained on suspicion of participation in solidarity actions with other activists, who had been arrested at a punk concert and accused of distribution of extremist literature.

A few weeks ago I had a discussion about what “primitivism” was and how it was different from “anarcho-primitivism.” Ultimately it was decided that the word “primitivism” has traditionally indicated a general outlook that sees value in some past era. On the other hand, “anarcho-primitivism” is that same tendency in the specific context of the anarchist movement. Some people also distinguished a type of primitivism that was specifically ecological in nature, separating it from primitivists who were not concerned with ecology or civilization at all (i.e., “Christian primitivism”).
