The Dark Side of the Network Case

The Dark Side of the Network Case

From a2day dot net

We have written about our attitude to the Network case and related contradictions before. Since then, nothing has changed for the better. Participants chose the role of typical victims of the regime, remaining indistinguishable from the rest of the same. This was more convenient for parents, human rights activists, and liberal circles shouting about the new 1937. The trial of the Penza group ended, and the defendants received huge sentences, from 6 to 18 years.

Living It

Living It

From Inhabit

When a new world takes shape, you feel it in your depths

Since Inhabit appeared in 2018, we’ve heard many people say they were looking for more. Some, for ways to get involved, to become part of the networks we described. Others, that they wanted to start building the kinds of worlds that Inhabit conjures.

Seattle: PSPS Statement on Recent FBI Activity

Seattle: PSPS Statement on Recent FBI Activity

From Puget Sound Anarchists

Puget Sound Prisoner Support (PSPS) is an anti-repression collective
 based in Seattle. For 5+ years we have provided jail and legal support for 
people who have been arrested at protests and demonstrations. We walk people through 
the legal procedure of arrest, court proceedings, bail if necessary, 
getting in touch with a lawyer also if necessary, and in general help 
people understand a confusing legal system. We do not provide legal
 support for people who get arrested for civil disobedience; rather, we
 provide an “emergency service” for when participants of a protest or
 demonstration get arrested. We offer a safety net for people to land in 
when the unexpected happens and things go wrong. We’ve supported friends
 and strangers alike, bailed people out, showed up at court proceedings 
throughout trials, and helped with fundraising to cover legal costs. Our 
major caveat is that we do not offer support to anyone who would
 endanger our communities by way of cooperating with the police, the
 courts or any other governing agency. No snitching, plain and simple.
