As of May 1st, 2018 to today (July 4th, 2018), the anarchist prisoners in Yogyakarta have still not faced court proceedings. Information received is that the anarchist prisoners should have been transferred to Cebongan Prison in Sleman on June 29th, 2018, as the prosecutor's office has been holding them in Yogyakarta police station (Polda Yogyakarta) since May 1st for the investigation process. However, the planned transfer was cancelled and the period of detention at Polda Yogyakarta has been extended until July 30th, 2018 on the grounds of further investigation. Our prediction is the extended investigation process is due to this case being politicized, it's evident by the many opinions that appear on the surface that the May 1st action was an act of opposition against the government.
We from Indonesian Anarchist Black Cross sell t-shirts for fundraising "Prisons Are For Burning". The proceeds of this sale will be used in legal and medical work of the Black Cross, especially helping anarchist prisoners in Yogyakarta who were arrested during Mayday action when raising the rejection issue of New Yogyakarta International Airport (NYIA) and anti-Sultan Ground / Pakualaman Ground and feudalism-monarchy society.
Regarding past and future acts of solidarity from any comrades here in Indonsesia or overseas it is hugely appreciated from our friends inside. Solidarity in the form of previously collected funds for the Ucil's legal assistance we are now redistributing to Ucil's other needs and any remainder to the needs of all friends who are currently in detention. Is solidarity is still needed? Yes, in whatever form, because the spirit of us all always get to the friends who are now languishing behind bars.
