From Till All Are Free
In summer 2013 members of several ABC groups discussed the necessity of introducing an International Day for Anarchist Prisoners. Given there are already established dates for Political Prisoners Rights Day or Prison Justice Day, we found it important to emphasise the stories of our comrades as well. Many imprisoned anarchists will never be acknowledged as ‘political prisoners’ by formal human-rights organisations, because their sense of social justice is strictly limited to the capitalist laws which are designed to defend the State and prevent any real social change. At the same time, even within our individual communities, we know so little about the repression that exists in other countries, to say nothing of the names and cases involving many of our incarcerated comrades.
Translated editorial from Le Monde
Tied up for seven years in the twists and turns of an incoherent investigation, the Tarnac affair risks becoming a policing fiasco and a political farce. Which has only made it all the more instructive.
Since November 2008, eight people who were living in the village of Tarnac in Corrèze have stood accused of “participation in a criminal association for the purpose of planning a terrorist act”. Members of the anarchist and autonomous movements (1) and authors of “The Coming Insurrection”, a radical text published in 2007, several of them are suspects in the sabotage of five high-speed rail lines in the fall of 2008 where steel rods were hung from power lines. Their leader, Julien Coupat, was held in custody for six months before being released.
We’re organizing a US tour for this September and October including anarchists from the groups that have produced versions of To Change Everything in Latin America, Eastern Europe, and the Balkans, as well as North America. Together, they will present a panel discussion comparing experiences from the recent global wave of uprisings and exploring the significance of anarchism in the 21st century.

Anarchapulco is the first international anarchist/anarcho-capitalist conference of its type and will be held in the freest city in North America, Acapulco, Mexico from February 24th to March 1st, 2015 at the Copacabana Hotel on the beach. Our vision is to take freedom and anarchy to the next level and that means holding events in much freer areas like Acapulco. The event will be a mix of music, speakers, panels, parties and educational opportunities including an entrepreneurship bootcamp hosted by Exosphere to help prepare the next generation of ancaps, Luke Rudkowski’s “Change Media University” and Dayna Martin’s workshop on peaceful parenting and unschooling.
Anarchists always appropriated means to spread anti-authoritarian ideas and struggles to feed the dialogue and subversive action. It is in this sense that this publication is also intended as a tool, more precisely that of providing a space to nourish the international debate between anarchists. That is why these particular pages create space for struggles that spring from anarchist activities; autonomous, direct and self-organized struggles; struggles that go towards the destruction of power in all its forms; struggles happening today, yesterday or that are announcing itself.
