Fénix 2 Case Update

via email, from ANTIFÉNIX

On Friday, September 25, 2020, from 8:30 a.m., another hearing will take place at the District Court in Most in the Fénix 2 case. So far, witnesses have been invited for questioning at the instigation of public prosecutor Václav Richter, who drafted the indictment. More precisely, witnesses who did not testify to anything to confirm the allegations. This time, witnesses nominated by the defendants themselves in their defense will finally be present. Recall that four anarchists and one environmentalist are charged with offenses punishable by 3 to 10 years in prison. Support the accused directly in court or by another solidarity action.

Lecce, Italy : NOT A DEFENSE…

On 11th September a maxi-trial will begin in Lecce against almost a hundred demonstrators accused of having opposed the realization of the TAP gas pipeline in various ways. A sort of spectacular event with big numbers set up mainly to impress and leave a sign of repression that can also be a warning to others in some way. Besides the place, a bunker courtroom, chosen for the trial, officially for reasons linked to anti-Covid regulations, unofficially to create an atmosphere suitable for the criminalization of the TAP opposition, the obstinate and law-dependent clerks of Order and the Economy do not have much in their hands.

From Black Rose Anarchist Federation

Author and independent writer William C. Anderson interviews veteran organizer and former Black Panther and political prisoner Lorenzo Kom’boa Ervin on the current political crisis, fascism and rising relevance of Black anarchism. We also urge you to generously contribute towards a fundraising campaign organized by William to support Lorenzo and his partner JoNina Ervin. Both are movement elders who’ve inspired generations of rebels and are in need of support with their living and medical expenses.

WHO ASPIRES TO FREEDOM CANNOT BE MEASURED

via Il Rovescio

From 2019 to today the Italian State has carried out many repressive operations and inflicted a series of restrictive measures on anarchist comrades, limiting their freedom of movement and forcing them to remain within the limits of their city or to move away from the city or region where they reside.

8th hearing of Phoenix 2 on court: what has been happening

On Monday the 13th of July 2020, another trial in the Fénix 2 case took place at the District Court in Most with the participation of the public. There was no fundamental reversal this time, again. Time passes, resources are continually being wasted and the whole things remains a farce.

Paris, France: 2 incendiary attacks

Solidarity with our comrades in prison is something essential. And even if it is a constant practice, day after day, we like the idea of an international campaign to remember them. A solidarity that should be more than words, more than paint and testimonies. In the night between 24 and 25 August, in the Passage de Lagny, in Paris, we set fire to a van of the Eiffage company infamous for building prisons (and the huge open air prison: these increasingly guarded and inhuman cities).

Road block and banner drop [I. W. S. W. A. P.]

via anarquia.info, translation by Anarchist News

Prisons, cameras, police, snitches, drones, debts and mortgages, employment contracts have been some of its devices and mechanisms to reduce our lives to the sad imperative of producing and consuming. Even in this desolate landscape, surrounded by concrete, smog, buildings and honking, there are bodies that resist.

Letter from Anarchist Comrade Juan Flores Riquelme about the Arrest of Mónica and Francisco

We knew that by choosing the path of struggle against capital, our lives would develop against all odds, and it was not unknown to us that prison could be a possible destination. We questioned this humiliating reality and its so-called “social peace”, we severely questioned the enrichment of the bourgeoisie and their power.

Letter from Imprisoned Anarchist Comrade Carla

Salut!

After 536 days on the run, I was arrested on July 26th near Saint-Etienne. I experienced the arrest as the first performance of a scene repeated a thousand times in my head, or rather 536 times? Everything seemed to happen in slow motion: the hooded cops pointing their rifles at me, put me down and ask me the name that I’ve so often been called lately. It felt strange to pronounce it.

Message for the I. W. S. W. A. P.

via Contra Info

For those of us who confront domination, the story of power will never speak for us. Both guilt and innocence belong to those who exercise or condone punishment. From our destructive practice with the prison and authoritarian dynamics, we can only despise every categorisation with which the enemy tries to define, distort and separate us, whether as culprits, leaders or prisoners.
