Spain: Prisoners Resisting Cruelty Start Hunger Strike on May 1st

COMUNIQUES> NEWS> Female and Male Prisoners> SPAIN:

RESISTING PRISONERS  WILL START HUNGER STRIKE THIS MAY 1st

The distancing of prisons from cities and inhabited areas, the mental walls, the lack of conscience, the belief in a line between “the good guys” and the “bad guys” … we do not know what the reasons are, nor which of them has more strength so that we have reached this point, in which the people who are locked in the Penitentiary System, matter so little and generate this terrible lack of empathy outside.

We want to take out, for a moment, the voice of these people who are fighting. They themselves have written a proposal of collective struggle where they show “the situation in which we are systematically subjected to abuse of power, aggression, continued physical and mental torture, and inhuman and degrading conditions of existence in many aspects: medical-sanitary abandonment, labour exploitation, legal defenselessness, cultural discrimination, non-existent freedom of expression, etc. “

Faced with this situation; from within, from the incarcerated people, a proposal of Collective Hunger Strike has emerged to throw a ray of light on the normalized violence in prison, to reach “out”. Continue reading Spain: Prisoners Resisting Cruelty Start Hunger Strike on May 1st

Greece releases jailed anarchist writer Tasos Theofilou

 Theofilou walks free after five years in jail, but Greek anarchists accuse the government of a crackdown.

 from   Athens, Greece – ………A cloud of tension hovered inside an Athens courtroom as an anxious crowd waited to hear the appeal verdict in the case of 34-year-old Tasos Theofilou, an anarcho-communist and novelist who has been in prison since 2012.

Several police officers suited in riot gear entered the room, while lead judge Ourania Papadaki warned the 200 solidarity activists and supporters who were present to remain calm in advance of Friday’s verdict.

“We find the defendant innocent of all charges,” Papadaki said, prompting tears of joy throughout the crowd.

His supporters chanted in unison: “The passion for freedom is more powerful than any prison cell.”

Three of the five judges ruled in Theofilou’s favour, while the other two voted to uphold his guilty verdict.

In February 2014, Theofilou was first sentenced to 25 years in prison after being found guilty of robbing a bank and killing a taxi driver on the Greek island of Paros in August 2012.

For half a decade, he rejected the charges against him, and many Greek activists considered him a political prisoner due to his involvement in the anarchist movement.

Disbelief was sketched across the faces of Theofilou’s parents, who were sitting in the front row.

“It’s impossible to believe it,” his mother said, smiling and visibly relieved as she hugged a handful of her son’s supporters.

7 Years Jail for Robbing a Bank ..While Criminal Banksters walk Free

On 7th June a  German court sentenced a Barcelona anarchist to seven  and a half years prison for robbing a bank in Aachen, Germany.  The other woman indicted was acquitted of all charges . The demo against the sentence begins at 8pm in Plaza Lesseps. Throughout the solidarity campaign, the support groups have made it clear that they do not care if the anarchists were to blame as they consider the expropriation action against the criminal banks to be legitimate. restemos-personas2

rescue people not banks

info via insurrection news   and Solidaritat Rebel    The Aachener Bank   was hit for the first time in July 2012. Around noon, a gang ran into the bank and demanded money at gunpoint. Then they shut the bank employees in one room. One woman was  wearing a blond wig, sunglasses. They spoke good German.

The Dutch press reports highlighted that the German police had been harassing and seeking to arrest the Dutch woman who was later arrested and  dubbed by them and the predatory media as the ‘leader’ for years and she had previously been held for 5 months and released as there was no evidence.

The Dutch anarchists who demonstrated and continue to campaign for the release of the 3 described the charges as fabricated. The leaflets and declarations emphasize support for the arrested comrades whether ‘guilty’ or ‘innocent’ and some justified bank expropriations in the context of trillion euro bank fraud, capitalist extortion and planetary destruction.
