|Nikos Romanos has triumphed. After 31 days of hunger strike and thirst strike beginning today the Greek government has yielded to his demands and has agreed to allow leave to study, as Nikos claimed and to which he was legally entitled.With this agreement consisting of about 6 months distance learning from prison first, then exit permits on electronic tracking device to study later, Nikos Romanos abandoned today the hunger strike and thirst having not only jeopardized the Greek state, but having overcome with a historic hunger strike.
Few is any similar examples can be found of the solidarity movement that has risen with this hunger strike. Continue reading Nikos Romanos ends strike. World solidarity helps Triumph

“In prisons the individual is crushed in the depths of her/his essence”
Today anarchism is a major concern in terms of security for many Western (and some Eastern) states; in this witch hunt informal antiauthoritarian anything goes, this repressive hysteria is inherent in our quest for total freedom, is as old as the anarchist ideas. So all who attempt to confront or question the prevailing order must expect a momentary or prolonged visit at one of these monuments of human extermination.

The union ACAIP warns that Valencian prisons do not have enough space for inmates who, for fear of not subsist in the streets, are rejecting the ‘third grade’ provisional freedom.
Inmates do not want to get out of jail. This is what is happening in Alicante, where several prison inmates of the overcrowded and disgusting Fontcalent prison have refused entitlement to leave during the day due to the lack of work and resources to survive, according to the local newspaper Information.

In summer 2013 members of several ABC groups discussed the necessity of introducing an International Day for Anarchist Prisoners. Given there are already established dates for Political Prisoners Rights Day or Prison Justice Day, we found it important to emphasise the stories of our comrades as well.

“I was at the peak of my work,” Hammond told America Tonight from a medium-security, federal prison facility in Kentucky. “It’s a shame I got caught when I did.”
The political activist and computer whiz said he had already breached dozens of vulnerable websites and was “halfway finished” with preparations for a full-fledged cyberattack when federal authorities disrupted his plans. He said he was going to launch new online attacks every week. Most of his targets never even knew they were his would-be victims.
“F*ck FBI Friday,” he chuckled. “It was only heating up by the time I was arrested.” Continue reading Jeremy Hammond in jail: they can never take away our principles.. our passions
