<table><tr><td><strong>Outside (& Inside!) Prisons, Jails, & Detention Center around the World</strong>

This event is inspired by the North American call out for a day of action against prisons in the New Year of 2010/2011, which happened again last year, & remains relevant unchanged:

Noise demos outside of prisons in some countries are a continuing tradition. A way of expressing solidarity for people imprisoned during the New Year, remembering those held captive by the state. A noise demo breaks the isolation and alienation of the cells our enemies create, but it does not have to stop at that.

Prison has a long history within capital, being one of the most archaic forms of prolonged torture and punishment. It has been used to kill some slowly and torture those unwanted – delinquents to the reigning order - who have no need of fitting within the predetermined mold of society.</td><td><img title="society!" src=""></td></tr></...

Prison is used not only as an institution, but a whole apparatus, constructed externally from outside of the prison walls. Which our enemies by way of defining our everyday life as a prison, manifest themselves in many places, with banks that finance prison development (like Wells Fargo, Bank of America, BNP Paribas, Bank of the West, and Barclays), companies that are contracted for the development of prisons (like Bergelectric Corporation, SASCO Electric, Engineered Control Systems, MacDonald Miller Facility SLTNS and Kane MFG Corp.), investors in prison development (like Barclays Intl. and Merrlin Lynch) to the police and guards who hide behind their badges and the power of the state.

Solidarity is not only an expression by way of our own revolutionary poetry which is defined by a developing anarchist analysis, but as an expression of actions put into practice within the social war daily. That is why we propose to others who have a certain reciprocal understanding of the prison world and the conditions it creates to remember this day, to mark it on their calendars. To locate points of attack. To not limit ourselves to just a noise demo, but proliferating actions autonomously from one another. That break the mundane positions we lock ourselves into by our own internalization.

To all our comrades known and we have yet to know. Just because we have not met, does not mean we do not act in affinity with one another. Our struggle continues not only on the outside, but on the inside as well. Prison is not an end, but a continuation. Through individual and collective moments of revolt, by the methods one finds possible. Like fire our rage must spread.

Against prison, and the world that maintains them.
For the social war.

In memory of those currently imprisoned.


One way to increase the impact and turn-out of your noise demonstration is to hold a counter-information demo or two on the visiting day(s) directly preceding NYE. The point of a preceding counter-info demo is two fold.

One point is to advertise the demonstration so that friends, associates, and loved ones of the incarcerated will know about the noise demonstration and possibly join you on NYE. The other, more important point, is to spread the context of the coming noise demo to the inside. The caged ones then have something to look forward to and can make plans of their own for NYE.

I am for unconditional solidarity with and immediate release of all jailhouse rapists, sexual predators, criminal sociopaths, violent gangbangers, and victims of capitalism who exclusively victimize other victims of capitalism; especially strong-arm robbesr who ply their trade in low income neighborhoods. Absolute freedom means freedom for everybody.

Really? I would have said conditional solidarity, but you must be way more anarchy than me!

igtt 1/10 *yawn*

What do you do with people who murder other people, if you don't have prisons? Gibbet them?

The reason prisons exist has nothing to do with being a solution to what do with "murderers".

No, what do you do with murderers then?

perhaps leave that up to the loved ones of the murdered

Yes, bloody revenge and the law of the jungle are superior to bourgeois jurisprudence.

That does actually sound preferable, yeah.

What do you do with murderers?

Give them badges seems to be the solution in most countries.

Fireworks make noise.

List of fireworks that make loud noise:

roman candles
cherry bombs
silver salutes





Remember that if you get caught with an m80, the police and media will tell everyone you were caught with a "quarter stick of dynamite".

Desperately seeking a reportback from the anti-police action in MKE

(so I can post it on my tumblr and get 672 hits!)

says someone who makes snide comments on @news

here's a reportback:

3 anarchists gathered to passively watch professional-activists guide people down the road and funnel their rage into petitions asking for chief flynn's resignation, voter registration and "non-violence".

Remember folks, not all police are bad. Just the bad ones. They die too! Bring on the FBI investigation into civil rights violations! WE LOVE THE FBI!!!!!!
