June 11th: International Day of Solidarity with Marius Mason & All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners

Over the years, June 11th Day Of Solidarity with Marius Mason and All Long-Term Anarchist Prisoners has supported and highlighted dozens of prisoners. More recently we have been trying to include more prisoners from outside the U.S. to avoid falling into the easy path of U.S-centrism and to more faithfully represent the rich, expansive anarchist and anti-authoritarian struggles across the globe.

Riot Turtle on #Lesvos and #Athens: Self-Organized Spaces Where People Can Live in Dignity

After almost 1 month on Lesvos and in Athens I returned to Germany yesterday. The difference between people living in free spaces like the Notara 26 squat in Athens and the people who are forced to live in the Moria refugee camp is unbelievable. Today human rights activist Arash Hampay was forced o leave Lesvos.

#Musaferat: Informative Note on #Lesvos January 2018

The period of time that followed the previous update has been tense in every sense of the word. The expectedly increased autumn arrivals, combined with the Greek state policy of caging the migrants on the islands, have brought back to life images of living hell in the detention centres of the islands. Local racist and fascist voices, freed from the “compassionate” gaze of summer visitors, found once more the time and place to impose on public space. Local authorities decided to reshuffle the deck, claiming the major political benefits that they could extract from the situation. Two new deaths were added to the already long list of deaths in the detention centres on the island. At the same time, once more, there were some migrants who, defying threats and repression, stood tall.

ICE Raids Wisconsin Dairy Farms: You Caring

Stop ICE from taking Juan Torres away from his family!!! Follow this You Caring Link to support their family.

WHEN IMMIGRANT RIGHTS ARE UNDER ATTACK

WHAT DO WE DO?

STAND UP, FIGHT BACK!

131

White America has a long ugly history of destroying family and culture of black and brown folks who were forced into the country, either in chains, or as refugees. It’s 2018, and still families are being separated based on racist policies which govern who qualifies for US citizenship. The current administration has shown extreme prejudice against black and brown immigrants, and it’s clear that now these sentiments are being carried out by ICE. Today, in West Bend WI, a member of my own family was arrested at his home and detained indefinitely. Continue reading ICE Raids Wisconsin Dairy Farms: You Caring

J20 – By Anarchist Prisoner Sean Swain

After the not guilty verdicts in the Chicago Conspiracy trial in 1969, one of the jurors was interviewed– an older white woman who admitted she voted for Nixon. Explaining her not guilty verdict, she said simply that this was the first time she was afraid of her government.

All J20 defendants were in a police kettle when a limo was torched

In that bell weather case for the Nixon fascist regime, so-called leaders of the protest outside the Democratic National Convention were put on trial for “conspiracy,” facing the rest of their lives in prison. Defendants included Abbie Hoffman and Jerry Ruben of the yippies, Bobby Seale of the Black Panthers, and anti-war pacifists. Continue reading J20 – By Anarchist Prisoner Sean Swain
