Voices from Solitary: Flipping the Script

By Eric King from Solitary Watch

My toilet is right next to my cellmate’s face, not hyperbolically, it is literally three inches from where he lays his head. I am in the FCI Englewood Secure Housing Unit (SHU)—the oddest SHU in the Bureau surely. In this segregation unit, you will get inmates from the Low [security prison], pre-trial people and folks like myself and my cellie who are on writ [having a court case] from other penitentiaries. This oddball combo makes no sense and causes a localized class system, all a part of the psych-ops of this odd rust bucket of a prison.

11/2/2020 Update On Eric

From supportericking.org

The week before last Eric was “accidentally” escorted into a room before his disciplinary hearing where the captain who authorized his prolonged 4 point restraints, (who was involved in beating him while he was cuffed up). was just chilling waiting for him. This is the second time this month he has been walked into a room that an officer who will be called to testify against him in his case was sitting in.

Contribution from 3 anarchists

via Act for freedom now!

Germany, France: Contribution from the 3 anarchists for the event take a place in September 2020 in Marseille.

In September 2020 in Marseille we organized a discussion about the repressive case in Hambourg, that sees three anarchists accused of transporting inflammable materials and preparing different attacks. The arrest took place in July 2019, since then, two of them are imprisoned, while the third comrade has been granted a conditional release. Their trial began in January 2020 and should conclude early November 2020. The event that we organized not only aimed at exchanging information about the repressive operation, but was rather focused on retracing the path of struggle – the interventions, the perspectives, the projects, the publications – with which anarchists in Hambourg deepened social conflictuality over the last ten years. We asked these three comrades to write a contribution for this event, you find it hereunder.

Solidarity to alleged terrorist organization "Comrades''

from Athens Indymedia

Solidarity to the four comrades persecuted for the alleged terrorist organization "Comrades''

It is a fact that the persecution of comrades by the police, is one more attempt at political, social and economic extermination of anarchists. These persecutions, however, face the relentless struggle for freedom and dignity. Solidarity will defeat the darkness of totalitarianism.

Anarchist Prisoner Natascia Begins Hunger Strike

Anarchist Prisoner Natascia Begins Hunger Strike in Piacenza Prison, Italy

One year, two months and 24 days.

This is the time that has passed since my arrival here, in the Piacenza jail; time filled with emptiness, time wasted trying to tame all of your senses, experimenting with a self-discipline that transforms, like an alchemy, the waste of a life into a formative experience. I have never looked for conflict, even if everyday life here is a constant series of occasions for conflict; when I set my reasons against this system of neutralizing the individual, I tried to do it with “civility,” with forced respect for roles, trying to appropriate them, at least as weapons, these illogical dynamics of which the guards make their banners: rules, rights, duties, protocols. And I’m certainly not saying it to brag about it, on the contrary; nevertheless, in jail, human experience is so distant from any form of good sense, common sense or just plain sense, that we must play, even if we know very well that the dice are rigged.

Interview: Gustavo Rodríguez Pt.1

Contrainfo: dialogue / interview with comrade Gustavo Rodríguez (First part).

With the urge to dialogue about Anarchy in our days, from ContraInfo (C.I.), blog we were self-motivated to conduct an interview with comrade Gustavo Rodríguez (G.R.), motivated by the recent international call for solidarity with the anarchists who continue to fight against punitive society behind prison bars, breaking the imposed normality. Comrade Rodríguez, has made countless contributions to insurrectional and informal anarchism and to the so-called contemporary illegalism, highlighting the sharp analysis of his latest contributions to the ongoing debate on the "new normal" imposed by "Cyber ​​Leviathan."
