The existence of this possibility, most meaningful for the essential core of the present social order, is precisely a reason not to make our life outside already a prison: conventions and prejudices, progressive compromises and fleeting satisfactions which allow us to get to the next day, leading to constraint and fear that seeks to diminish us in our own eyes. This revolutionary project that each anarchist develops in themself also continues to develop when one is in prison. Contributing to it and not sacrificing our initiative to the dictates of repression is a revolutionary, not merely anti-repressive and of course human, solidarity that I also feel for anyone who stews in the dungeons of the State.

Tuesday, 29th of January, shortly after midday, one of our comrades was arrested in his flat. The door was opened by force by a forensic unit.

His arrest, the house searches at his home, as well as - once again - of the Anarchist Library Fermento have been justified by the authorities with following accusations:

- Arson attack against several vehicles of the swiss army in Hinwil (Zurich) on September 27th, 2015

- Arson attack against radio antenna Waidberg of the cops in Zurich on July 10th, 2016
