The State is murdering Dimitris Koufontintas | APO

via Athens Indymedia

Dimitris Koufontinas, who has been on hunger strike since the 8th of January, and whose health is now in critical condition, is facing his calculated extermination, a clear political choice made by the government of New Democracy. The state mechanisms, which have been investing on fascistization, brutal exploitation and the intensification of repression against any form of social resistance, attacking constantly the anarchist movement, are now carving a horrific reality on the body of the hunger striker.

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.

Letter from Carla

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.
