The Ukraine is more or less bankrupt, ruined equally by predator capitalist western bankers and rapacious Russian oligarchs and swindlers. Now after 20 years pillage we see nationalists and macho morons on both sides playing WAR CHICKEN for the right to continue sucking the country dry for the foreseeable future.

Thousands march in Athens against the recent raids of Anarchists’ houses by the policeBfzl8lEIEAAjP7e

Thousands of people march -under rain-  in the centre of Athens against the state of emergency that Greek Police and the minister of Police Nicos Dendias are trying to implement against the Anarchists. A few weeks ago Christodoulos Xiros the member of the communist armed struggle group ’17November’ escaped from Korydalos prison. Since then the police started a witch hunt against Anarchists supposedly looking for Xiros. At least 26 houses of Anarchists have been raided so far, with the police and the attorenys general destroying the homes they attack. Continue reading

Solidarity demos in support of arrested in Gamonal spread to 46 Spanish cities

Solidarity demos in support of arrested in Gamonal spread to 46 Spanish cities

Who would have thought that a relatively conservative city like Burgos, Spain would have detonated a string of spontaneous and massive protest across the country? Over the past four days, social media networks across the globe have exploded with the hashtag #Gamonal and #EfectoGamonal, virilizing this small town’s struggle against rising property prices and corrupt municipal dealings to international attention, and along the way reawaken national indignation that has been simmering in Spain for years.

Switzerland -Marco Camenisch–

marco andiFrom RadioAzione         Translated by act for freedom now/B.pd

Marco is a Swiss anarchist and environmental activist who has been in prison since 1991. He is serving a 18 year sentence: 10 years for using explosives to destroy electricity pylons leading from nuclear power stations and 8 years for the murder of a Swiss Border Guard whilst on the run. In 2002 Marco completed a 12-year sentence in Italy for destroying electricity pylons in Italy as part of a sabotage campaign against the nuclear industry.

Solidarity is our weapon: let’s use this weapon by sending cards and greetings to Marco. [9/10/10]

Sadly, Marco has been denied parole yfor the second time this year:
“This time the denial came from the TAR (administrative review court). To tell the truth, I’m sick and tired of dealing with the usual long-winded repressive crap, in which also the TAR simply ‘approves’ everything that has already been expressed by their worthy cronies, only adding even more meanness and maliciousness. I was surely expecting a confirmation of the denial but, to tell the truth, at least a hint of seriousness in the treatment of the ‘defense arguments’. In practice an a posteriori internment, by the end of the prison sentence, is most likely what lies ahead of me. That’s the only pointworth noting…” [11/12/13]

Writing to prisoners

These prisoners are locked up for opposing the insane system we live under, they need solidarity support. Most are convinced that the State and money system needs to change as they are at the root of repression, war, poverty, patriarchy, ecocide and climate change.

If you send them a solidarity greeting remember everything is read and examined on the way, so DONT write about anything illegal or which might give them more problems. Also don’t expect a reply, most prisoners are limited to sending a few letters.

Some of these addresses are certainly out of date already, you should check first via the links and any local Anarchist Black Cross (ABC) groups,  (see list below).  Also you can send books and publications  via the ABC groups or here : http://www.combustionbooks.org/insideout/ Continue reading

Global Noise Demo for Prisoner Solidarity: New Year’s Eve 2013/14noise prison demo

Inside and Outside Prisons, Jails, & Detention Centers around the World

from Anarchist News

This event is inspired by the call out for a day of action against prisons in the New Year of 2010/2011, which happened again in 2011/2012 and again last year, & remains relevantly unchanged.

Noise demos outside of prisons in some countries are a continuing tradition. A way of expressing solidarity for people imprisoned during the New Year, remembering those held captive by the state. A noise demo breaks the isolation and alienation of the cells our enemies create, but it does not have to stop at that. Continue reading

The Ecoterrorist and Me

By David Rovics – Counter Punch, November 25, 2013

“Pinocchio asked Jiminy Cricket, ‘how do you become fully human?’ Jiminy Cricket said, ‘you develop a conscience, and then follow it.’”Marie Mason with cat

Sitting on plastic chairs, around a plastic table, inside a room with thick cement walls and massive, steel doors, was Marie Mason, Peter Werbe, and me. On top of the table was a little bag of peanuts and a bag of very mediocre trail mix. These are the only vegan options available from the vending machines in the room Peter and I were taken to before we were escorted into the visitation room in Marie’s cell block. Nearby sat a sleepy-looking prison guard. Continue reading
