Last year, we reported on some anarchists building a space ship vessel for Murry Bookchins “Lifestyle Anarchism or Bust” bread book. We are very sorry to report that a Russian backed Syrian army jet shot down the space ship as it took off towards the heavens. The remnants of the craft are currently held by some USA govt backed rebels there.

This is a summary of resent support events in Finland for the repressed comrades in Russia.
On the 4th of February, Anarchist Black Cross Helsinki organized “Amazing Vegan Sunday Soli Lunch” at Lymy. The event was a success. In Tampere a support gig was held on March the 2nd.

February 22nd, eviction of Bois Lejuc: The cops processed 32 people for identity control. Five people were taken to the remand centre for different reasons including outrage and rebellion (refusing arrest), of these 1 person was let out directly, 4 others were released 24 hours later. They will have a court date on June 12th.
2 other people were also arrested, taken to remand and refused an immediate trial (this tactic means people have a chance to build up their defense before the court case) they were both held in prison until their court date, Monday March 19th.
Following are statements they made in court on Monday, as well as their penalties.
Between the 10th and 13th of Mai the Chaos- and Discussiondays are taking place in Berlin. Quite a few things are already being planned. Until now there has been an open Meeting for the preparation taking place in Fischladen, Rigaerstrasse 83 every Wednesday at 6pm. With this plenary assembly we hope to put the concept up to public scrutiny and discussion.Additionally we would like to evaluate if such a plenary assembly can function as a coordination platform for more people who autonomously organize things decentrally following the Do-It-Yourself principle.
From Freedom News, Mar 24th
After an investigation tracking his articles through the paper and talking to old comrades, Freedom can today reveal at least some of the story of former spycop Roger Pearce as he used our paper to worm his way into Northern Ireland.
He roamed the streets of Santiago do Chile with full conviction of what he felt, against a terrorist police, against a society that mistreats and tortures human beings and other animals. His deep revolt against the grids of cages and prisons arose directly from his heart. Wild and free, he wandered his brief anarchist life like a comet, bright with love and rebellion. The comrade Javier Recabarren dies, ran over by a killing machine in the same street where he fought so many times (18 mars 2015). An indomitable wisdomof the acracy ran through his veins, in a young 11-years-old body!
On the 4th, 5th and 6th of May in Porto (Portugal) there will be an Anarchist Encounter of the Book taking place. This aims to be a moment to share and exchange materials, experiences and communication.
Not only is it important to strengthen ties and create new forms of collaboration with each other, this meeting intends to be a place for the diffusion of our presence and our ideas.

Only in the evening Karakashev could call a friend and ask to find a lawyer”, – says Savchuk. – “The investigator Abushayev said that he does not remember how lon Karakashev had been handcuffed – 5 minutes or 3 hours, and that Karakashev voluntarily agreed on «offer» to go to police department”.
