10.02.18: The anarchist prisoner Şevket Aslan who is being held in İzmir T Type Prison in Aliağa Şakran, is on the 81st day of what he describes as an ‘endless and irreversible’ hunger strike until his demands are met. Şevket went on a hunger strike with the same demands on July 19th and ended it on the 53rd day.
Since these demands were not met he has begun a new hunger strike. Şevket’s main demand is to be recognized by prison authorities as an anarchist prisoner and to be transferred to another unit or prison that houses anarchist prisoners. If this is not possible he wants to be moved to a single cell.
Şevket is currently housed with another prisoner in what prisoners describe as a ‘coffin’ – a cell designed for one prisoner that contains a bunk bed. There is barely any room for them to move inside the cell.
SEVKET ASLAN’S FULL LIST OF DEMANDS ARE AS FOLLOWS:
1– To be recognized as an anarchist prisoner by the prison authorities and transferred to a unit or another prison where other anarchist prisoners are housed, failing this, to be transferred to a single cell
2- To be able to receive books that are not banned
3– That the prison stops “losing” his written complaints, appeals and requests that he sends to official institutions and that he is given the exit numbers (tracking numbers) for them
4– Termination of shoe removal rule except for open visits and health reasons
5– An end to prisoners having to stand for excessively long periods of time while waiting to see prison administration
6- That the prison allows him to paint and allows him to receive oil painting materials and have access to the painting workshop

SU LUCHA ES TAMBIÉN NUESTRA LUCHA: LA BATALLA POR LA LIBERACIÓN DE TODOS LOS PUEBLOS DEL MUNDO
People don’t usually break societal barriers and disrupt the patriarchal order at funerals anywhere in the world, let alone in Pakistan. But on February 13, many women in Lahore, including myself, did just that by actively participating in a janaza, a Muslim funeral ritual, for the first time.
On that day, contrary to orthodox funeral traditions observed in Pakistan, we not only stood alongside men, we actually stood in front of them. Also, there were hardly any frowns directed at women who chose not to cover their heads. Continue reading Asma Jahangir: saying Farewell to a Pakistani Feminist .. Who will Defend Us Now?

This was also published in the free magazine Crisis, in Catalan, of which 200,000 copies were printed and distributed by volunteers throughout Catalonia. A second newspaper, We can! Live Without Capitalism was distributed on March 17, 2009, and a third, We want! on September 17, 2009.
