Spain: Elisa di Bernardo – “We are winning battles for the freedom of Gabriel Pombo”

Elisa di Bernardo went to Oviedo yesterday to relate the situation of her companion Gabriel Pombo da Silva. She was invited by the group Higinio Carrocera, in collaboration with the Cambalache community centre, taking advantage of her visit to Pombo in the prison of Mansilla de las Mulas in León. Elisa gave a very complete account of both the legal situation of the anarchist prisoner and his life and struggle during more than 30 years in prison.

France: Anarchist comrade Boris gets out of prison but is not out of danger..

Indymedia Lille, 29 September 2021

[The trial] of 20 September, which would have dealt with the appeal against the 4 year prison sentence, could not take place because of the still critical state of health of our comrade who continues to be in an artifically induced coma.

Operation Scintilla: a two-year journey

via Roundrobin, Translated by act for freedom now!

We have decided to have a say ourselves regarding the declaration made during the appeal trial for operation Scintilla in February 2019. We are doing it now on the internet, over two years later, strong from a long, hard and enriching path. The choice of coming out now on the internet is for various reasons. Certainly it is motivated by a debate that has been going on for several months with comrades close to us on the need to widen the retelling of what happened to those who are locked up in Italian jails as well as those who live beyond national borders. Another reason comes from recently published texts which open a level of discussion that we don’t want to avoid, for the completeness of the narrative. We want to make it clear immediately that we didn’t consider the internet an adequate instrument to deal with what happened because of the narrowness of reasoning that this instrument necessarily imposes. In fact, we don’t see this space as adequate to an in-depth and sincere discussion. Therefore we want to point out the limits that this text inevitably carries with it, as it can’t reflect the complexity of the reasoning and ways we have elaborated since we started to face what we had done.

This Is America #148: Nabisco Strike Grows into Wider Struggle; Fight to Free Sean Swain Continues

We then feature an interview with Lauren Swain, partner of long-time anarchist prisoner Sean Swain. During our discussion, we talk about how Sean has currently been denied parole, even after serving 30 years in prison for an act of self-defense. We discuss what is needed now to help Sean get out and ways that people can show solidarity.

In November 2020 a series of co-ordinated raids against 325.nostate.net were executed by Counter-Terrorism cops in UK as part of “Operation Adream”. Several properties in the South-West of England were searched and one person was arrested and charged under the Terrorist Act. The charges are administration of 325.nostate.net, funding of terrorism through the website and dissemination of and collection of material useful to terrorists.

About the sentence against anarchists in November 2020

via Enough 14

Starting in 2008, the Belgian State carried out a large investigation aiming at different struggles that were in conflict with detention centres, borders, prisons and the world of authority and exploitation – always without concessions. In its sights: the anarchist library Acrata, anarchist and anti-authoritarian publications (Hors Service, La Cavale and Tout doit partir), dozens of flyers and posters, more than a hundred actions, attacks and acts of sabotage…in other words, the fight against Power in all its different expressions.
