Open Letter from Ucil / Brian Valentino

As I wrote this letter, I’ve been arrested for 21 days in Mapolda D.I.Y prison cell. I’m arrested for my involvement in May Day riot few weeks before. There’s some difficulties that I can’t really explained it here one by one, but I know for sure that this cells aimed to limit our access to communicate and therefore our further works for the network, a work that was meant to revive the spirit and consciousness to undermine every forms of obedience and submission. I believe we’ve agreed that it is not intellectual or academic potential that coul raise the consciousness of our surrounding that is rapidly destroyed.

I wanted to give thanks to the comrades out there, those who keep their spirit high for rebellion and struggle and also their solidarity even the remote places.

Tak banyak yang bisa kutiliskan dalam surat ini, sehubungan dengan situasi yang cacat intervensi di tempat ini.

There’s not much I can write in this letter as the condition is quite impossible.

But one of the main purpose of this open letter is to warned all the comrades that the situation had escalated and it is urgent to act as more and more of our friends being arrested for participating in the May Day action.

All in all, I urged to all the comrades to increase awareness and planning, so that the future struggle would be more bigger, concentrated, and not easily defeated.

Because we know that revolution doesn’t come from discusson to discussion.

I am very thankful for all the help from the comrades, especially for the legal aid that would give me choices in the front of the court.

Considering: The trial have been politicized by the rulling classes and the assumption that one of the political institution who are controlling public opinion. Thus, I give you this letter as an aask for help in the trial process.

Long Live the Resistance
Long live Insurrection
