21.08.19: On Monday night, we set fire to several construction vehicles on the grounds of the Zwickau Marienthal Prison construction site. An excavator was burned out completely, the other four excavators and a front end loader were damaged by our fire and made partially unusable. We would like to dedicate this action especially to Loic, the Park Bench 3 and the Basel 18. They are missing from our side.

Nothing is forgotten.

Even two years later, we have not forgotten the days and nights of the G20 summit in Hamburg; the euphoria on the faces of those in revolt, the headlines about the nightly attacks in the lead up, the noticeable nervousness of the law enforcement officers. We remember the beginning of the campaigns focusing on the G20 and the desire to continue our mutual reference through targeted attacks beyond that short time frame.

From Support Eric King

On or around 8/3 Eric when in custody at USP Lee Eric woke up unable to use his left hand/arm whole side of his body. Unable to life his arm to brush his teeth. Slurred speech and paralysis of the whole left side of his face. When looking in the mirror he experienced mirrored-self misidentification which means that he did not recognize himself in the mirror. His brain could not connect that was him. Within 24 hours all symptoms were gone.

Every Death is a Murder – Prisoners Justice Day, Hamilton

From North Shore Counter-Info

On the evening of Prisoners Justice Day, August 10th 2019, a small group of prison hating folks gathered in Hamilton, Ontario at Beasley park for a noise demo. HPS (Hamilton Police Sevices) observed the rally with excessive numbers including bike cops, a cop van, a supervisor suv and two cruisers. As our numbers grew we gathered to listen to a small introduction by the Barton Prisoner Solidarity Project explaining how PJD started and why it continues. The BPSP is a newly developed organization that seeks to thin the prison walls by building connections and magnifying the voices of those inside, while simultaneously working to smash those walls altogether by asking bigger questions about what a world without prisons would look like and figuring out how to get there.

From AMW English

I’m not going to wait for the Apocalypse to come before I fully embrace Anarchism. I don’t need to see anymore young children forced to sleep on dirty concrete floors in South-West Texas in squalid conditions, eating bologna sandwiches and separated from their parents! No! I’m not going to wait.

From Anarchy Bang

If anarchism is a type of survival strategy to support living humanely and/or with other humans then we have to talk about the damage done to us in this world and how much power we have to support the other wounded. It is an open question but if we consider our prisoners to be first among the wounded. Incarceration is the highest form of alienation and living violence that is done to humans (by humans) and represents a central aspect of civilization or capitalism or what have you that we must escape. What does that look like come the day of days? What does that look like today?

Trouble 20: Inside-Out

From Submedia

Prison is the foundation of state authority and the anchor of capitalist social relations. It’s the baseline threat that coerces us into accepting a daily regimen of exploitation and abuse. It’s a shrine to power and a monument to futility. It’s cameras, motion sensors, and walls of thick concrete wrapped in concertina wire. It’s an ongoing experiment in regimentation and psychology. It’s a sweatshop run on reclaimed slave labour. It’s a forced separation that rips up families and tears loved ones apart. It’s the last shitty stop before you’re deported back to the life you fled. It’s a sprawling job site, where unionized guards earn a living by keeping human beings in cages. It’s a sterile time capsule, where individuals are kidnapped from the present and thrown into limbo for years on end.
