Fantasy Anarchist Terrorist Alert at Spanish Prisons

fuegoMedia intoxication in the International Week of Solidarity with Anarchist Prisoners   by Balailo.info
The Spanish Interior Minister of State fears an anarchist attack against prison officials this week

A post here at vozpopuli  has “uncovered” a Prisons Circular recently distributed to its workers demanding extreme measures to protect themselves against possible suspicious packages received between 23 and August 30th. The reason for this is the “discovery” by the Information Service of the paramilitary Civil Guard of the international call for solidarity with anarchist prisoners from 23 to 30 August.

According to these coppers, the poster is “much more aggressive than the last year’s” In fact, you can read the legend “fire to the prisons and jailers”, which leads them to conclude that the “main objective of the anarchist movement” at the moment are Prison Officers “or any persons related to the facilities of the General Secretariat of Penitentiary Institutions “. All because someone added ”and the Jailors” to the traditional ”Fire to The Prisons” slogan. Continue reading Fantasy Anarchist Terrorist Alert at Spanish Prisons

Anarchist Prisoners Week /solidaridad presxs anarquistas

Anarchist prisoners

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.
Many imprisoned anarchists will never be acknowledged as ‘political prisoners’ by formal human-rights organisations, because their sense of social justice is strictly limited to the capitalist laws which are designed to defend the State and prevent any real social change.
At the same time, even within our individual communities, we know so little about the repression that exists in other countries, to say nothing of the names and cases involving many of our incarcerated comrades.
This is why we have decided to introduce an annual Week for Anarchist Prisoners on August 23-30. We chose August 23 as a starting point, because on that very day in 1927 the Italian-American anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were executed in prison.A prisoners week

 Here’s a recap: If you’re still ‘undecided’ on the cannabis debate, Joe Rogan brilliantly summarizes why hemp was made illegal in the first place. In addition, the number of people experiencing extremebenefit from including high-quality cannabis extract(s) into their regime are sky-rocketing – causing a large number to question why the recreational use of marijuana is still under prohibition.

Whatever way you look at it, the benefits of using cannabis far extend those derived from ‘legal’ substances, such as alcohol. And now, three years after marijuana was made legal in Colorado, the state is continuing to report massive economic improvement and reduced crime rate.

For starters, just in recreational sales of marijuana in 2014, Colorado sold over $34 million in the month of August. $3.4 million of that (10%) went straight to the government and towards building schools. At the time, a number of sources expected Colorado to rake in at LEAST $30 million from their recreational marijuana market – just from taxes alone.
