Fighting Back: Every Day! by Thomas Meyer-Falk (for June 11th)

From June 11th

When I look back on the day of my arrest 20 years ago, I wasn’t imagining what I would have to experience during the next decades of my life.

The first decade they kept me in solitary confinement; since 2007 I’m in population. But I don’t know if or when I’ll get free, because there’s an old law from 1933. Passed by the Nazis on 24 November 1933 – the P.D. law (preventative detention), which allows the state to keep someone in prison for life, without giving him a life sentence. In their theory the P.D. isn’t a sentence – but the P.D. units are still inside regular prisons, inmates living in cells, bars are still at their windows, they’re going into the prison yard and being supervised by prison staff.

Shut This Shit Down! by anarchist prisoner Michael Kimble

On May 1st, 2016, prisoners in Alabama will be staging a workstrike at a number of Alabama prisons.

My reasons for shutting down is simple, I want to bring as much pain and disorder to the state (ADOC) as I can as an individual in any way that I can. I don’t give a fuck about “changing any laws” because they are the mechanism that is used to keep people from being free. Fuck the law! The only true freedom is when we act outside of the law.

But in the cause of solidarity I’m asking all outside rebels to express their solidarity with the striking prisoners through free direct action. Join us, protest at an Alabama prison, burn some shit down/up, drop some banners, just cause some fucking chaos. Shit is getting real in Alabama prisons, not that it wasn’t already.

Friday, Feb. 12, 2016 – Monday, Feb. 15, 2016

What began as a confrontation between prisoners from different regions of Alabama – namely, B’ham and Montgomery, with B’ham being the largest – escalated into two short riots against the pigs. After the prisoners squashed the beef among themselves without any violence, two pigs ran into C-dorm, which houses 114 prisoners and was informed that there was no problem and everything was under control.

One pig (Tate) tried to bogart his way through a crowd of prisoners and was immediately stabbed a number of times. After the two pigs ran out the dorm, one bloodied the warden, Carter Davenport, who has a reputation as an extremely sadistic, disrespectful, and nasty scumfuck fascist, who was recently removed from his post as warden at St. Clair maximum security prison for assaulting a prisoner, and reassigned as warden at Holman in 2015. He was stabbed after entering C-dorm like some kind of god.

From Act For Freedom Now! (translated from informa-azione)

In December 2010 the 11 anarchists investigated in operation Nottetempo were declared guilty of subversive association (art. 270) and other specific ‘offences’ by the Appeal Court of Assizes in Lecce.

Italy – Anarchists Niccolò Blasi and Claudio Alberto are free!

After Mattia, Claudio and Niccolò were also released from house arrest a few days ago and are now free without restrictions.
Chiara is still under house arrest as her situation is different from that of her three comrades. A few months ago she was served with a Special Surveillance order implying compulsory residence, but this has been suspended and is to be enforced only when Chiara is released from house arrest. An appeal was made against the order and the court will soon decide about revoking, modifying or confirming ‘their’ Special Surveillance.
