London. UK. We decided to mark June 11 by calling our little ‘manif sauvage’, with two targets: HMP Pentonville and the forthcoming Google London HQ. The point of this is twofold. Firstly, to start again a trajectory which has ebbed during lockdown – that of constant antagonism at the houses of confinement. In a sense, this seems to us to be an affirmation of the sense of the day of June 11th: to clarify that any repressive installations are a part of the global self-sustaining matrix of social control and exploitation. As such, we have seen no contradiction whatsoever in offering a brief disruption to the grotesque regime of control in an English prison, and agitating, speaking in the language and reality of, the international anarchist tension.Continue reading London, UK: Two manifestations in the context of June 11 – International day of solidarity with long-term anarchist prisoners

Greece. Lesvos. The world as we have known it is currently being reshaped by a pandemic. This ongoing situation is being exploited to amplify existing inequalities, increase forms of social control by the state, close borders, and push through measures that would have otherwise been met with heavy resistance. Those already with the least before the pandemic–the poor, the elderly, survivors of domestic violence and gender-based violence, homeless people, people struggling with addiction, and migrants– are now even more exposed, with fewer and fewer support structures still operating.Continue reading Support Lesvos Mutual Aid and Solidarity Network

Greece. On 24 May 2021, anarchist fighter G. Dimitrakis was murderously attacked with multiple blows to the head by a group of prisoners in Domokos prisons where he is currently being held. Following the attack, Giannis was transferred to the hospital of Lamia in a critical condition. Eight days on, although our comrade has escaped the danger to his life, the damage done is still very serious. Giannis’s strength and mental vigor make us optimistic that he will also come out of this battle victorious.Continue reading Greece: About the mafia-style attack on anarchist comrade Giannis Dimitrakis in Domokos prison

Italy. June 7. 2021. According to his family members, Cesare is on hunger strike for several days now. For months he has been held in total isolation in a wing in Calabria prison because the other prisoners there are Islamist terrorists. Cesare has repeatedly demanded his transfer because he has received multiple death threats from Islamists and he is virtually unable to see his relatives. Imprisoned 40 years after acts for which he has self-critically accepted political responsibility, authorities have accused him of being particularly dangerous in order to execute the state’s revenge.
Cesare must get out of this situation, which aims to destroy him.Continue reading Cesare Battisti on hunger strike
