June 28th: Solidarity Event and Presentation for the USA Prison Strike
In 2013 the groups comprising the Anarchist Black Cross initiated the Week for Anarchist Prisoners, which takes place in the last week of August.

It’s important to emphasize the stories of our comrades, since many of them will not be acknowledged as political prisoners.

How could we fight this world that tries to disown us of any real autonomy, by delegating ourselves parts of our struggles to the media or the public opinion?

And these ideas come to life here and now, in our revolt against domination.
