#Chile: Public Statement of the Coordinating Committee for the Freedom of Political Prisoners of October 18

Note from Vamos hacia la vida: We share the first statement of the Coordinadora por la Libertad de lxs Presxs Políticos 18 de Octubre (Coordinating Committee for the Freedom of Political Prisoners of October 18), a coordinating committee in which different solidarity groups converge with individual prisoners from the October-November revolt (and those who will follow, as the struggle in the streets continues), as well as family members, friends and comrades of those who have been subjected to repression. We consider it important to coordinate efforts to show solidarity with our prisoners, especially since the last count of comrades in pretrial detention involves approximately 2,000 prisoners. Solidarity with the people who are suffering repression from the revolt is a fundamental aspect of our emancipation. We salute the efforts of the comrades and make this blog available to disseminate all or most of what should be spread from that coordination.

Voices of #Notara26 Interviews from the struggle in #Exarcheia. Part 8: “Everywhere I look I see a story”

This is part eight in a series of interviews with people involved in the Notara 26 squat in Exarcheia, Athens. The struggle for the free spaces here is made up of people with very different backgrounds, life stories and ideas. We aim to record people’s own words without imposing our views – though of course we can’t escape our own perspectives, or the limits of translation. You will find the other interviews here.

“An impressive day” – review of the strike and demonstration in #Paris on December 5

Last Thursday, around 1 million people in France took part in nationwide demonstrations against the government’s plans to “reform” the pension system, i.e. raising the age of entry and cut pensions. (1) Only members of the police are to be excluded, as the government stated just before the 5th of December, after trade union representatives of the cops had declared that they also wanted to take part in the protests. Work stoppages occurred mainly in the public sector, train cancellations of the state railways were high, metros were rare in the Paris metropolitan area and many bus lines were also cancelled. Flight operations were also disrupted. There were also extensive work stoppages among teachers and health workers, who have been fighting for months for better working conditions and better pay. In the private sector, there were hardly any strike actions, but since Thursday, work has been suspended in the majority of the major oil refineries, here the majority of the workers are organized in the CGT and the workforces are one of the last bastions of the classic, militant working class. At the same time, roads and roundabouts have been blocked nationwide, although to a much lesser extent compared to the beginnings of the Gilets Jaunes movement.

A review of the first big day of action and the attack on the new “pension reform” from the point of view of a participant.

This is a translation of the German version which was translated by Sebastian Lotzer. The original report was published by Paris-Luttes.

Call to support #Exarcheia and the fourth film by the #Anepos collective

Like previous films over the years, Love and the Revolution financed a significant part of the needs of the main places and collectives in the Exarcheia district of Athens, and about 70% of the resources provided by solidarity convoys. But after the end of the film tour, at the end of the winter, it’s over. We no longer have a regular source of funding to support places and collectives. Fortunately, thanks to you, we managed to save several members of Rouvikonas from prison during the spring. Then two of you helped us to restore the emergency fund to meet the following priorities. You will find information about how to support us at the end of the text that follows.
