Argentina: Anarchist Comrades Released from Jail as All Charges Dropped

via: AMWEnglish
On November 14, 2018 the accidental detonation of an explosive device that would be placed in the tomb of the miserable Colonel Falcon in the Recolega Buenos Aires cemetery, produced a series of wounds to the comrade Anahi Salcedo, who was stopped along with someone else in the place. In parallel, another comrade was arrested after being intercepted after throwing an explosive device at the house of Federal Judge Claudio Bonadio.
These three arrests are the beginning of an anti-anarchist hunt that led the State to raid different buildings and social centers, as well as arresting a dozen people who lived or had any relationship with a building occupied as a housing solution.

Chile: Statement by Anarchist Prisoner Marcelo Villarroel on the 10th Anniversary of the Death of Mauricio Morales

via: AMWEnglish
10 years after the death in combat of Mauricio Morales …
To all those who confront the present from autonomy, with insurrectionary memory, in resistance and subversion!
10 years ago Mauricio Morales Duarte, the punky Maury died. One night at the end of May, a rumble was heard, in the vicinity of the south center of Santiago, in the gendarmerie school the punky Maury departed in his eternal bicycle to the route of all those who have lost their lives in this everyday exercise of struggling to be free by confronting the domain in all the spaces of reality.
At that time, I was a prisoner in unit 11 of Neuquén, Argentina, when on a cold May morning, I learned what had happened. The inevitable pain of loss was multiplied by anger and pride. Your choice of life in struggle as a contribution to the anarchist and insurrectional tension as an expression of social war earned my repeated respect.
10 years since then, the remembrance of your history and the memory of your actions are expressed as part of our arsenal of life in conflict that everyday we carry in all the most unsuspected corners on the planet… it has already been said many times by comrades around the world speaking different languages, but the same language of war in eternal complicity with those who attack power, prison, hierarchies, the police and all authority.
We always share your words and history, we make you talk with those who died before and dance the same wild melody of the attack. Memory, Resistance, Subversion is our insistence that contains all the experiences of struggle and direct conflict including by those we do not know but we know nevertheless… the struggle for total liberation is dispute and daily conflict in all spaces of reality.
And for that reason I encourage the proliferation of the initiatives that set out to destroy the existing order and certainly your example walks between us without any doubt. From the high security jail of Santiago in Chile, I greet all those who make this activity possible and to all of those that decided to move to attack against this rotten world in which today we survive.
On the third day of hunger strike …

Italy : Anna, Silvia, Nat – “A throw of the dice” – (Prison of L’Aquila)

End of hunger strike communique

Life is a role of the dice with destiny wrote a poet, that we know anarchists like to play.
We have ended a first game. A month to see how the land lies and sniff out the boundaries of the cage, a month’s hunger strike to show that we are difficult material to box up.
On the thirtieth day we are interrupting with the intention of returning more strongly.
A first positive balance is in the immediate living, spontaneous solidarity inside and outside the prisons, which raised the problem loud and clear.
From inside: a month on strike also Marco and Alfredo in AS2 in Alessandria and Ferrara, joined by Natascia on her arrival in Rebibbia, who we continued with once she arrived here, then other comrades, Stecco, Ghespe, Giovanni, Madda, Paska and Leo.
Close by: we heard the beating on the bars from the female and male 41bis of l’Aquila, music that shatters the silence of this fortress which we have answered and will continue to answer as long as it lasts, in solidarity with all those who have been suffering this infamous regime on their own skins for years.
From outside: direct actions, informative incursions, disruptive actions around Italy and the world have amplified something that is not a game: anti-anarchist and not only prison differentiation, punitive circuits, refinement of repressive strategies. This is nothing we didn’t already know, we are aware that both inside and outside there are sparks everywhere ready to propagate, this gives us strength and determination.
It is just a beginning that we hope has been an injection of confidence in the potential and in the strength that we carry with us, inside and out.
