Note: Enough is Enough is not organizing any of these events, we are publishing this text for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on and for documentation only.
Anarchists organised demonstrations, lectures and in the evening decided to scout the
abandoned buliding to protest against capitalism and the economic decisions taken above our heads by politicians and bourgeois and against housing policy in Poland. The police tried to get inside and throw them out and silenced the voices of opposition preventing to disrupt the meetngs at EEC. Our comrades defended bravely and fearlessly throwing petads and bottles but in the morning antiterrorists break through using stun grenades and arrested 21 anarchists.
During the trial, the most of arrested accepted a conditional discontinuance of the criminal proceedings which is tantamount to pleading guilty, as a result of which they were not sentenced to any punishment. Six persons did not accept conditional dismissal of the case. A fine was imposed on one person due to the disability pension, and on the remaining ones, social work. Two of them took up social work, three refused it and since then have been wanted.
On the night of 19th October 2018 two of wanted anarchist comrades were arrested during document checks after 3 years of police search. Arrested comrades stay in different detensions and will be imprisoned for next 2 months. One of the arrested was deprived of meals for 5 days because his name was not put on the kitchen list of imprisoned officially. Now when he is on the list he is unable to get vegan meals. Visitors cannot bring food from outside, everything must be bought at 5 times inflated prices
in prison shop.
On 27th October 2018 several dozen anarchists and activists gathered to demonstrate the solidarity with arrested anarchists. The flares were fired to remember those who are impisoned and the one that is still wanted.
Situation of imprisoned anarchists is hard, tough, harsh and complicated they lack in food and other basics stuff. If you can help please send letters or financial help for them that they could do the shopping in prison’s shop.
Don’t let the idea of AntiCongress die!!!!!!!!!
