From June 11: International Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason & All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners

June 11, 2017: Communication is a Weapon

By now it is a platitude to speak of the isolation and silence that prisons strive to impose. Every week another one of our imprisoned friends tells us that their mail is getting fucked with, the phones on their unit are “broken,” or that our publications are being rejected with no recourse.

For us, one of the most exciting elements of June 11, 2016 was the proliferation of words and ideas shared between and from anarchist prisoners. Along with spreading material solidarity internationally and keeping the names of our comrades on our lips, our contribution to facilitating that communication is one of our most important tasks. While the starting point of our project was support for Marius Mason and Eric McDavid (the first of whom remains imprisoned in an extremely restrictive unit, while the latter has been freed!), it has been through a spreading web of communications that we have expanded the scope of our project to solidarity with long-term anarchist prisoners around the world. This year, we are seeking to emphasize this communication.

Target Practice

Aleksandr Lukashenko, for 24 years you have dominated the people of Belarus and using your oppressive state apparatuses inherited from the authoritarian Soviet past, you continued this perpetual nightmare for the people.

Since the 15th of March, you, and your parasites, the bureaucrats, the police and the snitches have unleashed a barbaric campaign of repression against the people of Belarus and especially the anarchists who fight for the liberation of all.

Kimble on the Free Alabama Movement

“Non-violence is itself just an insidious hypocritical form of violence, a sign of certain people’s inability to stand up for themselves as human beings.”

My critique of the Free Alabama Movement (FAM) springs from my belief as an anarchist and anarchists’ opposition to authority, domination and the state. It also comes from my participation in and observance of FAM. I sincerely hope that FAM changes its mode of action and incorporate a diversity of actions into its tactics when it comes to fighting the state, and abandon its reformist goals which only strengthen the state.

SCRIPTA MANENT? ACTA NON VERBA!
“Written words remain”? Deeds, not words!

In the face of repression that has struck anarchist comrades in Italy (Op. Scripta Manent), in the face of our enemies -the State and Capital- we still and always think that the best solidarity is attack. They are paying for actions belonging to all anarchists across the world. We want to send them a sign of our proximity with deeds; contrary to others here and elsewhere that are content with a bit of rhetoric on their internet sites.

Warsaw 3 released on bail

from https://wawa3.noblogs.org via http://rabble.org.uk

We announce that all three of Warsaw are freed.

After nearly 4 months of absolute isolation we managed to pull them out of jail.
This release proves how weak is the police evidence and how “necessary steps” of the prosecution were just playing time, using detention as form of torture to force confessions.

This also proves that solidarity campaigns make sense – not only in moral dimension, but also practically.
