Chile: Communiqué of the prisoners of the Carcel of Alta Seguridad

via actforfree

Communique of the end of the hunger strike and the continuation of the mobilization of the prisoners of Carcel de Alta Seguridad [High Security Prison] against the reform of law 321

Publicacion Refractario / Saturday, June 1st, 2019

Today Thursday, May 30, we are ending the hunger strike after 14 days. We started it in 23 prisoners locked up in section 3H north of this unit, and in the days that followed the hunger strike saw the participation of different sections, reaching a total of 32 prisoners, as a concrete manifestation of the refusal of the application of the amendment to Legislative Decree No 321, concerning parole.

We believe that this struggle requires the attention, resolution and the dedication of all the imprisoned concerned, as well as their families, their organizations and their people who see prison as an instrument of discipline primarily aimed at criminalizing poverty and supported by an ever more repressive legal framework, the aim of which is to keep social order in the service of the powerful of this country.

As part of the national mobilization of prisoners and those accompanying and supporting us against this perverse modification, we declare a state of permanent mobilization, since it is with the silence and the complicity of the politicians of all colours sitting in Congress, judges and lawyers who justify and the State as a whole, under the Piñera government [Sebastián Piñera, the Chilean President; NdAtt.] who, behind the backs of the small people, have used legality in violation of the treaties as well as principles of their own law, which they claim to defend.

Italy: Updates on Juan and Manu, anarchists arrested on May 22 in Brescia

Translated from: https://roundrobin.info/2019/06/12699/

Juan was transferred to the prison of Terni. He is accused of “association with the purpose of terrorism or subversion of the democratic order” (art. 270bis of the penal code), “act of terrorism with deadly or explosive devices” (art. 280bis) and “massacre” (article 285) for the attack against the headquarters of the “Lega Nord” party in Treviso in August 2018, of “possession of forged documents” (497bis) and of “carrying of weapons or objects to offend” (for a small knife, article 4 of law 110/75). Manu was transferred to the Monza prison [this last comrade is accused of “personal aiding” (art. 378), in reference to the absconding of Juan].

Italy: Updates on the hunger strike of imprisoned anarchists for the closure of the AS2 section of L’Aquila

via 325

The hunger strike for the closure of the AS2 section [“High Surveillance 2”] of the prison of L’Aquila continues [it was started by the anarchists Anna Beniamino and Silvia Ruggeri on 29 May, 2019].

The anarchists prisoners Salvatore Vespertino, Giovanni Ghezzi, Alfredo Cospito, Marco Bisesti and Luca Dolce also joined the hunger strike.

In our closeness, we will not publish or in any way give space to petitions, telegrams, faxes, mail bombings or any means of civil pressure aimed at emphasizing the current repressive situation; we consider these means not only useless but harmful, counterproductive and objectively enemies of anti-authoritarian thought and action, which unfold in a very different horizon.

Brussels, Belgium: Bulletin #2

Print out of PDF in English

From 2008, the Belgian State started a large investigation aiming at different struggles – but always without concessions – against detention centres, borders, prisons and the world of authority and exploitation.

In its viewfinder: the anarchist library Acrata, anarchist and
anti-authoritarian publications (Hors Service, La Cavale and Tout doit partir), dozens of flyers and posters, more than a hundred actions, attacks and sabotages…in other words the fight against Power in all its different expressions.

Initially charged with “participation in a terrorist group”, it is
finally under the accusation of “criminal association” that 12 comrades were on trial at the end of April in Brussels. Around the same time, 6 comrades received a convocation for the Chambre du Conseil connected to another investigation that could result in formal accusations for “incitement to commit crimes”.

On the 29th and 30th of April 2019, the trial was held in Brussels
against anarchists prosecuted for “criminal association” as well as for a series of crimes. In 2017 the Chambre du Conseil had already disqualified the accusation of participation in a terrorist group and dropped a number of accusations for which it felt there were not sufficient grounds to charge.

Two defendants attended the trial at the Criminal Court. They refused to answer the questions of the magistrates. The other ten accused did not show up. All were represented by lawyers. Following the oral argument of magistrate Malagnini of the Federal Prosecution, the lawyers took the floor and pleaded inadmissibility and acquittal. For his part, the prosecutor asked for sentences ranging from 100 to 300 hours of community service or a subsidiary sentence ranging from 12 months to 4 years in prison (9 accused), a suspended sentence of 12 months and a fine of 50 euros for one person and acquittal for 2 persons. The accused refused to accept work punishments.

Italy: “Renata” operation: Stecco transferred to the prison of Ferrara

We inform that anarchist comrade Luca Dolce, known as Stecco, was transferred from the prison of Tolmezzo (in the province of Udine) to the prison of Ferrara, precisely in the AS2 section (“High Surveillance 2”) where are imprisoned the anarchist comrades recently sentenced in the first instance trial for the “Scripta manent” operation. Stecco has been in prison since February 19, 2019, arrested along with seven other anarchists in the context of the repressive operation called “Renata”.

On May 9, five anarchists imprisoned for this repressive operation were transferred to house arrest: Agnese (who had recently been transferred to the new AS2 section in the prison of L’Aquila), Giulio, Roberto (who were detained in Tolmezzo), Andrea and Nicola (who were detained in Ferrara). Only comrade Luca Dolce (known as “Stecco”) remained in prison due to other final sentences. While another comrade, Sasha, who was also arrested on 19 February and immediately placed under house arrest, had this last “precautionary measure” transformed into an obligation to stay and return home from 9.00 pm to 7.00 am.

We also recall that in the month of March, following a court decision that considered the allegations and aggravating circumstances of “terrorism” to be non-existent, has fallen the accusation of “subversive association with the purpose of terrorism and subversion of the democratic order” (art. 270bis) of which a part of the arrested comrades were initially accused, and the hypothesized crime has become that of “subversive association” (art. 270). The charges relating to specific facts (“interruption of public service”, “damage”, “sabotage of telematic devices”, “fire” and “transport of explosive material”) are unchanged.

Athens: Solidarity with D. Koufontinas- Traffic Sabotage of Central Streets

via act for freedom now!

On Monday 20/5 many comrades made a coordinated traffic sabotage at some of the most central streets of Athens. We barricaded with burning trash-bins and blocked the traffic ar Patission, Kokkinopoulou and Iera Odos streets, as a gesture of solidarity with the revolutionary Dimitris Koufontinas, who has been on hunger strike since 2/5, demanding the repeal of the prosecutor’s veto and the immediate grant of furloughs.

The whole judicial complex unleashes its fury and its harshness against the specific political prisoner, because from the beginning of his activity until now he has shown consistency on his struggle and his values. Simultaneously, the pressure that the greek state receives both in an internal level from the well-known family of Bakogiannis, and also in the level of external politics from USA, intensifies the repression
and obstructs the detention conditions of D. Koufontinas. A big part of the social fabric, driven by the dominant bourgeois mindset that wants “law and order” and a normal and unimpeded flow of their daily lives,
embodies all of its suffering on the face of D. Koufontinas.

Continuous struggle until the end, near Dimitris Koufontinas

Immediate repeal of prosecutor’s veto Furloughs now for Dimitris Koufontinas
