en castellano abajo
Note from the Chilean blog Publicacion Refractario: Despite the continuous contradictory information that has come to us from different factions regarding the detained comrades on the other side of the mountain range, which is related to the fact that their situation is not being publicized- their names, the charges, everything that happened has been silenced.
We prefer to publish the communique from the ‘Union of Lawyers and Attorneys’ who are quite clear about the recent events that have taken place in the Argentine territory… Against silence and indifference: To spread insurrectionist anti-prison solidarity.The attacks and mass arrests of the anarchists came just before the G20 Meeting in Buenos Aires.All the detained anarchists defended by our union have been processed and placed in preventive detention.
In total there are 12 anarchist political prisoners.
One is accused of throwing an explosive device at Judge Bonadio’s car. His name is Marco Viola. Two others are accused of having attacked the tomb of the criminal chief of the Federal Police Colonel Ramón Falcón. Their names are Anahi Salcedo and Hugo Rodriguez.
There was a raid on a social center in the Barrio of Constitución, in CABA (Autonomous City of Buenos Aires) and they detained everybody who was meeting in this place, some with more permanence, others circumstantially.
ALL OF THEM have been accused of EVERYTHING.
They are all under investigation for being part of an organized structure established and created to commit offences among which are those that we have already mentioned.
Bail was refused for all of the detainees.
Now Judge Ercolini has indicted all of the accused. The prosecution ruling for PREVENTIVE DETENTION was passed. . They have ordered that ALL the anarchist detainees remain imprisoned until their trial.
The Union will appeal the resolution.

(In fact it was the anniversary of his death and just before the G20 Meeting )
As a result of the apparently premature detonation of the small bomb two people were arrested at the scene. Continue reading “12 Anarchists still Held Hostage without Bail in Argentina”
