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]

10 mujeres han iniciado una huelga de hambre. 

  • Diez mujeres empiezan un ayuno hasta conseguir ‘protección real’
  • Denuncian que las víctimas viven ‘maltrato institucional y judicial’
  • Critican que se ha eliminado el salario de la libertad

Diez mujeres gallegas están desde las 00.05 horas de este martes en huelga de hambre y seguirán así de forma indefinida, “hasta conseguir una protección real, un sistema que realmente proteja” a las víctimas de violencia de género y a sus hijos. Con su ayuno pretenden denunciar la “indefensión total” que sufren las víctimas y reclamar medias a nivel institucional y judicial.

La protesta está promovida desde la Asociación Gallega para la Defensa de Víctimas de Violencia de Género ‘Ve-laluz’ y se desarrolla en un local prestado por un particular en el centro de A Coruña en el que de aquí en adelante harán todo tipo de acciones para poner de relieve el “maltrato institucional y judicial” que sufre el colectivo de víctimas una vez que toman la determinación de denunciar el otro maltrato, el físico y/o psicológico de sus parejas.

“Lo que se está viviendo hoy en España no tiene sentido. ¿A esto le llaman sistema de protección a víctimas de violencia de género?”, se pregunta Gloria Vázquez, presidenta de la asociación. Como las otras nueve mujeres que secundan la protesta se define como una “superviviente de la violencia de género” y reclama que es igual de importante y necesaria la protección para ellas como para sus hijos, los menores que se convierten en víctimas de la violencia directa o indirecta de sus padres.

Una de las diez mujeres que participaba en la huelga de hambre convocada en A Coruña por la asociación gallega para la defensa de las víctimas de violencia de género Ve-la Luz ha sido trasladada al hospital tras 120 horas sin comer para someterse a diversas pruebas médicas.

La asociación inició el pasado lunes una huelga de hambre para reclamar una sistema de protección real para este colectivo y denunciar su indefensión, y durante este fin de semana se sumó a la convocatoria la responsable comarcal de Acción Feminista del BNG, Victoria Louro.

En un comunicado, Ve-la Luz ha informado del traslado de una de las participantes en la huelga de hambre, que se negaron a la activación de un protocolo para estas situaciones, tras la asistencia de efectivos de Urgencias Sanitarias que aconsejaron su derivación a un hospital.

La asociación asegura en la nota que estas mujeres han sido “ninguneadas por parte de los responsables de las instituciones públicas que deberían velar por la seguridad de todas las mujeres y de estas diez en particular”.

Asimismo, denuncia el “el abandono institucional ante una situación de emergencia algo habitual en las políticas ofrecidas en esta materia (violencia de género)”.

En todo caso, la asociación reitera que mantendrá la huelga de hambre “hasta que dejen de matarnos por cometer el único delito de ser mujeres”.svaw06

Guards clashed with prisoners as they sought to move hunger strikers out of communal cells [GALLO/GETTY]
Guards have swept through communal cellblocks at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp and moved the inmates into one-man cells in an attempt to end a hunger strike that began in February.”Some detainees resisted with improvised weapons, and in response, four less-than-lethal rounds were fired. There were no serious injuries to guards or detainees,” Navy Captain Robert Durand said in a news release on Saturday.

He said the action was taken because detainees had covered windows and surveillance cameras to block the guards’ view into the cellblocks. Continue reading

Al día siguiente mientras hablaba con su madre y le contaba lo ocurrido, los carceleros se acercaron para que colgara, finalmente le arrancaron el teléfono de las manos y le rompieron la muñeca, desde entonces hasta la mañana siguiente le tuvieron esposada a la cama de su celda. La mañana del 25 consiguió que le llevaran al hospital para poder ser atendida.
