We continue to be in awe, of the spirit of direct action by our anarchist comrades in Greece.

The fascist political party L.E.P.E.N. was gearing up to open its doors on September 18th, the same day that Antifa rapper Killah P was murdered by neo-nazis. A large crew of Antifa comrades went to the new L.E.P.E.N. HQ and demolished it.

This was followed up, by a clean-up of Exarhia Square. Comrades crewed up and kicked out drug dealers, out of this historically anarchist neighborhood.

Spain’s Catalonia region has launched the country’s first public DNA profiling project in a bid to identify some of the 114,000 people who disappeared during the nation’s civil war and subsequent dictatorship.

The issue is hugely sensitive in Spain, where rights abuses during the 1936-1939 conflict and the ensuing 36-year rule of dictator Francisco Franco remain uninvestigated for fear of reviving divisions.

Raul Romeva, who handles transparency matters in Catalonia’s regional government, described the initiative as “a decisive step towards restoring” historical memory. Continue reading Catalonia: DNA tests to identify Spain’s civil war dead

National Prison Strike September 2016 – Facebook

“Where the conditions for revolution are not present, they must be manufactured.”
-George Jackson

Prison officials recently placed Siddique Abdullah Hasan, a death row prisoner held at Ohio’s supermax, in segregation. Siddique was framed as a leader of the Lucasville prison uprising in 1993 and has been a vocal supporter of the September 9th national prisoner work stoppage.US Prisoners Strike Sept 19 2016

His segregation should really come as no surprise as prison (mis)managers have long waged a brutal war on truth and on the captives who tell it. What is disturbing and highly instructive is that Siddique’s segregation didn’t originate with the prison warden, but with the FBI.

Yeah. The FBI. Continue reading Sean Swain calls for Prison Strike against Slavery and Racism ..from Sept 9th, USA

The exploitation of migrant workers is turning into a full-fledged humanitarian crisis.

Dawlat Khan has worked as a health and safety officer for the construction firm Saudi Oger in Saudi Arabia for nearly eight years, but his experience took a turn for the worse 8 months ago when his monthly salary of US $2000 abruptly stopped.

According to The Middle East Eye (MEE) Khan is only one of some 50,000 Saudi Oger employees who have not been paid since last summer. The kingdom’s largest private company reportedly owes employees US $800 million in back pay.

Living in a work camp where rent is US $133 per month, Khan has to rely on friends for food and accommodation costs. Most crucially, like many migrant workers in the country, Khan’s family is reliant on his earnings in the kingdom.57427fd544f64

Kurdistan: Freedom for Zehra and 1000’s more.. Homage to slain US volunteer Levi …

Kurdish journalist feminist Zehra Doğan and  Mazlum Dogan arrested and jailed

https://thefreeonline.wordpress.com/

Our editor ‪#‎ZehraDoğan‬ detained!!! ‪#‎Jinha‬ ‪#‎editor‬

The editor of the feminist news agency Ajansı Jin Haber, Zehra Dogan, and Mazlum Dogan, deputy adviser in Mardin for Democratic Peoples Party (HDP) Ali Atalan were arrested two days ago in Mardin. They were sitting in a cafe in that city of Turkish Kurdistan. Zehra and Mazlum were sent to Nusaybin…

Her work as a journalist as “evidence of crime”

Zehra’s journalistic activity has been considered by the Turkish authorities as proof of propaganda organization. Police have provided as evidence her reporting of the situation in Nisêbîn / Nusaybin, ( see Genocide in Europe: Nusaybin surrenders after 74 days ..in total ruins and  deafening silence) social Facebook messages on the network, drawings and news testimonies.

Logically the feminist journalist denied all charges and said she belongs to the Turkish Journalists Union (TGS) and all the news reported is within the scope of journalistic activity.

Greetings on March 8 Womens day  led them to prison

Meanwhile, Mazlum Dogan has been accused of attending activities with the Deputy Ali Atalan. Police criminalize his actions in the media around March 8th when he read the following textual statement:”Happy International Women’s Day happy all working women and women from insurgents Clara Rosa, Sakine Seve. Jin Jiyan Azadi” (Women, Life, Freedom). Such words, in the Kurdish language, are regarded as a crime.
