Since March 27, multiple searches, arrests and incarcerations have struck anarchists and kindred spirits throughout France (Ambert, Amiens, Limoges and Toulouse for the moment).

A note to announce some good news in the environmental fog. The two comrades of Ambert, in jail since March 28, have been released under judicial surveillance following the appeal trial against custody. They have to sign twice a week and cannot see or communicate with each other and with a certain number of people.

These are good news for sure and it also means that we overcame some part of “Fénix”, which meant something different to all of us: long months in prison, deprivation of anonymity or exhausting solidarity campaign, to put it shortly. Nevertheless, we shouldn’t make illusions about winning against repressions legally in courts, ever. Also High court’s decision doesn’t bring any kind of certainty for future, and already now we can see the top of other pile of police shit coming over horizon or even closer, a.k.a. Fénix 2, which literally is desperate attempt for revanche, an effort to get something against our comrades and restore a bit stinking idea of legitimacy of police and prisons, in czech context at least.

We announce that all three of Warsaw are freed.

After nearly 4 months of absolute isolation we managed to pull them out of jail.
This release proves how weak is the police evidence and how “necessary steps” of the prosecution were just playing time, using detention as form of torture to force confessions.

This also proves that solidarity campaigns make sense – not only in moral dimension, but also practically.
