My friends tell me that I take too long to tell stories. They ask when I start a story whether this will be like “Pebbles,” the infamously long report I provided during our first semester of college about a hangout with a crush that involved tossing pebbles, but didn’t include even a kiss. “Don’t give us the Pebbles version,” they say. “Just tell us what happened.”

So, check it out. I’m hopped up on coffee. A lot of it. I’m going to try to continue to combine nouns and verbs in each of the sentences that follow, but I can’t make any promises.
In the context of the recent acute increase in repression in Belarus, the Anarchist Radio Berlin talked to Anarchist Black Cross Belarus about their work, the situation in the neighbouring country of Ukraine and the situation of refugees in Belarus. For security reasons we transcribed the original interview and re-recorded it ourselves.

A federal judge on Thursday ordered the release of a Foresthill man who was convicted of being an ecoterrorist seven years ago, following an extraordinary hearing in which the U.S. government conceded that thousands of pages of documents that should have been turned over to the defense had secretly remained locked in a Sacramento FBI office for years.
The state has filed an answer to the lawsuit, which far as we can tell, summarily denies every allegation without evidence or argument, claims that Sean is not allowed to sue them, and requests that the court charge Sean extra fees for even trying. At the same time, the paralegal at OSP is making up reasons to not give Sean access to legal materials he needs to work on his response. A total coincidence, we're sure. See Sean's correspondence below for details on that.
After lawsuit is filed against Kevin’s jail over magazine policy, a call to mass-mail magazines.
On behalf of Kevin, we are asking anyone who publishes a magazine, newsletter, or any periodical to send copies to Kevin this week.
This week, a lawsuit was filed against the jail by Prison Legal News over its refusal to allow magazines (except PLN) into prisoners.
As Anarchist Radio Berlin we documented a presentation by Jake Conroy: "From activist to terrorist". He is an activist for animal liberation from the US, who participated in a campaign to close an animal testing laboratory and was prosecuted and sentenced as a terrorist.
Along with the presentation we recorded an interview as well where he tells a bit more about the US prison system and his experiences with it.
Disclaimer for anarchists- the goal of this peice is not to claim that Keith's experience of injustice is exceptional or that his innocence affords him special treatment relative to others who suffer in US prisons. I am an abolitionist and an anarchist, I beleive that all prisoners are political, and nothing the state does it legitimate. The point of this post is to witness and detail one of many examples of how threadbare and absurd state's arguments can be when they attempt to legitimize lynching someone.
