When extensive strikes and workers’ and students’ riots took place in France at 1968, one of the slogans back then was “All power to the imagination”. Czech police and courts now have their own interpetation. They assert their authority through fostering their own imagination.
The Fenix case uproar, consists of a lot of accusations of many crimes, ranging from the one of so-called “promotion of terrorism” to the one of preparation of terrorist attacks. These are the ones that were most discussed at the latest Municipal Court Hearing in Prague. During their verdict, the judge acquitted all the five defendants of the Fenix 1 case. Is it a victory? Why this decision isn’t final? Followed article is a translation of a month old overview over the court hearings and some analyses of our situation and experience, originally written in Czech language.
Prague: Update in repression case “Fenix” – Trial (Czech Republic)
UPDATE: All the accused in “Fenix 1” are found innocent on all points. The verdict is inactive due to the appeal of the state attorney but all the custodies and so on are taken down and as a first step this is quite a relief. There will be more trials. There will be a proper post about it soon.
This week we feature an interview with Freddy, who is a member of the autonomous youth collective in Belgrade, Serbia known as Koko Lepo. We speak about the origins of the collective as growing out of a self organized kindergarten primarily for Roma children, about solidarity between anarchists and Roma people in Belgrade, about some history of the region, and about the complex nature of solidarity itself.

"Alf action for the financial damage in Velký Ratmírov city mink farm. 7th
August in night, we splashed around two hundred minks by nontoxic spray. No
more, because security or owners disturbed us. (Next time you will atacked,
bastards!) Minks are still waiting for death, unfortunately. This action we
devote all jailed animals and liberators and especially for jailed Czech
anarchists from sick police action called 'operation Fenix'. Long sentences
for us will entail more harder actions contra to you!!!! War continue.

A CALL FOR SOLIDARITY!
