France: Solidarity with prisoners of the social war

In this period of war and of generally heightened tension, the unbearable conditions under which we’re made to live are maintained by fear. Fear of losing your job and of coming up short at the end of the month, fear of police, fear of prison. This feeling is driven home by the indefinite extension of the state of emergency and by locking away for ever longer those who remain recalcitrant. And yet, there are so many reasons to revolt against this world of cash and cops, and so no wonder that many people don’t give in to resignation and continue to take action against it all, in small groups or in a crowd, by day or by night.

Because the social war against the deadly rule of state and capital, there can be no truce: attacks against borders, rebellions in jail, escapes from detention centres, sabotage against the construction of airports or of high-tension power lines. Ransacking schools, burning construction equipment or the cables that permit the flow of information and transportation. Destroying campaign offices, riots following yet another police killing, daily hustles to avoid wage slavery… Beyond any law, whether earthly or divine, this routine disorder is able to flourish freely.

Anarchist comrade Gabriel Pombo da Silva who is held hostage by the Spanish state and has recently been ‘ghosted’ (transferred suddenly to another prison) from Topas, Salamanca, to Dueñas, Palencia, has started a hunger strike. The hunger strike is to demand a single cell, as the Spanish authorities always try to revenge Gabriel by putting him in cells with junkies, snitches and other scum, like rapists.

Since our arrest in 2012 I have maintained a near radio silence public profile despite regular and sincere encouragement to share my thoughts and ideas through mediums such as this. This was done intentionally as I had, until this point, maintained a glimmer of hope that I'd be able to fight my case in court. Today I received notice that my latest efforts to appeal my conviction were shut down by the court. There still remains a few avenues of recourse, but the prospects of a bright horizon, in those regards, are abysmal.

Hey y'all,
Jennifer Gann is a resolved anarchist trans woman prison rebel who would benefit greatly from a more established and broad support system. So, we've created three internet things for her: A support site on noblogs.org, a fundraiser on youcaring.com, and a list on Riseup.

Message from Evi Statiri about her release from prison

The first thing you realize once you are released is that your eyes no longer stumble into walls, railings and dividers. They can wander and see the sky barbed wire. Also, your footsteps are no longer numbered. Twenty up to the wall of the courtyard, twenty to return to your cell. Certainly in my own case the walls of the courtyard have expanded to a kilometer from my house and I am not allowed to have any contact with my partner...

But anyway, I feel my release is just the first victory against the fear and injustice they want to impose upon us as a condition of life...
