White supremacists gather in nation’s capital a year after the deadly car-ramming attack in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Washington, DC – More than 1,000 anti-fascist and anti-racist protesters are expected to descend on the US capital on Sunday to counter a far-right rally, one year after the first “Unite the Right” in Charlottesville, Virginia turned deadly.
Several counterprotests are scheduled to take place near the “Unite the Right 2” event in Washington, DC’s Lafayette Park, located just outside the White House. The far-right protest is being organised by Jason Kessler, who put together the last year’s protest in Charlottesville.
At that demonstration, white supremacists and other members of the alt-right clashed with anti-racists. It ended after a far-right protester rammed his car into a crowd of counterdemonstrators, killing 32-year-old Heather Heyer and injuring more than a dozen others. James Alex Fields Jr, the accused driver, has since been charged on several counts, including federal hate crimes. Continue reading Anarchists want to Kick ‘Unite the Right’ nazi killers out of DC!
We are coming back with global week of solidarity with anarchist prisoners. Since last year, a lot has changed in our countries, but the general tendency is going in the worse direction with more repressions applied against anarchists not only in Europe but worldwide. With this in mind, we are calling for sixth annual week of solidarity!
Originally published by Solidarity International.
Last year lots of people sent us their reports from different parts of the world and we hope that this year the tradition will grow even bigger. We need to support our comrades! Use this week to spread the information about anarchists behind bars.
Don’t have prisoners in your country? No worry, support prisoners from other countries in your region or use those days to raise awareness of repression mechanisms and how anarchist communities can fight against them!
To start off the Week Of Solidarity With Anarchist Prisoners (23rd-30th August) we bring you this fun evening of Poetry Music and Information on Prisoner solidarity and how you can join in and prepare actions of support. At Hydra Bookshop 34 Old Market Street, BS2 0EZ Bristol, UK.
This is a good opportunity to meet others and throw ideas around about upcoming actions you could do in solidarity with Anarchist prisoners!

Brazil – ‘Sentenced: the Incorrigibles!’
After years of persecution 23 victims of police repression in Rio de Janeiro have finally come to trial and been sentenced to long prison terms between 5 and 13 years. Thousands took part in the protests, the 23 are just victims snatched by the police. The only positive thing is that they are freed on bail pending appeals. They will need another strong and lasting solidarity campaign
Comminique: On the sentences against 23 comrades for alleged participation in the disorders in Rio de Janeiro in 2013-2014
As we oppose anything that violates freedom, today we are opposing the sentences against the 23 arrested following the protests in Río de Janeiro in 2013-2014.‘The freedom of others extends mine infinitely.’ – M. Bakunin
23 people were sentenced in Río de Janeiro in ‘Operation Firewall’ for violence, criminal organization, damage, resistance, bodily harm and possession of explosive devices; sentences range from 5 to 13 years in prison and were issued by judge Flavio Itabaiana of the 27th Penal Tribunal in Rio de Janeiro.
They were all investigated by the Unit for the repression of cyber-crimes, which was the political police engaged in the World Cup and Olympic Games, the same that monitored protests in Porto Alegre and Sao Paulo.

How many people would love to tell Jacob Rees-Mogg to go and fuck himself? Well, last night we did so in joyful fashion. We paid a little visit to the countryside just outside of Bristol, to his mansion called Gourney Court in the quiet village of West Harptree.
For those of you who are reading this and do not know who this man is, he is one of the most detestable members of parliament ever, and fuck me they’re a bad bunch. Other politicians claim he is the one truly ruling this country from behind the scenes. Here are some of his charming characteristics…
He is extremely wealthy, staunchly Roman Catholic, a clear friend to fascist groups and has his eyes fixed on being the actual political leader of this fucking prison island (after May decomposes fully).
He was raised by his nanny. After prep school he attended Eton college and then Oxford university (for the poshest people in the country).
Him and his wife have a 100 million quid together, they just bought a new house in London for 5 million, he makes 168,000 pounds a year from his partnership in a hedgefund business called Somerset Capital Management that is worth 7.5 billion pounds (apparently it invests in tobacco, mining and oil and is based in offshore tax havens, for those who care about such details). He proudly claims he has never changed a nappy in his life despite having 6 kids.
He uses his religion as an excuse for his xenophobic views. He is opposed to same sex marriage and contraception, he is against feminism, LGBTQI people and specifically gender re-assignment.
He is opposed to abortion in all circumstances including cases of rape.
He is opposed to immigration, he supports zero hours contracts and loves the equally charming DUP (Northern Irelands right-wing Democratic Unionist Party) and the Conservative governments billion pound deal with them.
He fucking idolizes Margaret Thatcher and we’re not even done yet… Continue reading Far-right politician Jacob Rees-Mogg gets home-visit by Crazed Anarchist Vandals

The Anarchist occupied social center ‘CSOA La Gatonera’ is getting heavy pressure from the new owners of the building, the ‘de-squat’ security company “Loman”.
The objective of the new owners, Lamero SL, is to force the abandonment of the building through threats to achieve a new real estate venture in a neighborhood (Carabanchel) where capitalist speculation is rife.
The owners clearly do not want to start the legal channels of eviction, their objective is to avoid waiting for the judicial order of eviction. This is an increasingly common practice by owners that requires a strong response. Continue reading CSOA La Gatonera : Solidarity and Resistance with Occupied Social Center ‘The CAT-HOUSE’
