Time is the illness of reality. In prison, time seems to poison the atmosphere. The air thickens as though it is flooded with lead filings and each and every day our lungs are infested with this oxygen so toxic that it weighs on us again and again, more so with each passing day.

From 325 by Asbo

Bang-up and Smash is an overview of women’s prisons in the UK, and a political analysis of their physical and ideological construction.

From the moment of arrest, to coming home, Bang-up and Smash uses first hand experiences to critically engage with the procedures, concepts and apparatus the state relies on, and the economics behind the expansion of the prison industrial complex.

From Support Eric King

Eric has been locked up for three years now, he was arrested on September 16th 2014. Between Kansas, Oklahoma, and now Colorado he has seen a lot of different jails and prisons and has had his share of struggles along the way. There’s no denying it has been a long road and unfortunately there’s an even longer road ahead.

A Year Of Making Noise

From Conflict MN by anonymous

It does not bring us great pleasure to say that so far this year, autonomous efforts have been lacking. We would do well to remind ourselves that rebellion exists everywhere, even if it is obscured from our view, yet we remain unsatisfied. The excitement we felt on January 20th, that feeling of potential, has continued to escape our grasp ever since. As Trump took office and millions across the country were moved to take their stand, it was the left who welcomed them with open arms. Anarchists and other autonomous rebels everywhere seemed to be caught off guard January 21st and it seems the Twin Cities have been the slowest to catch up.

For a Dangerous June, We call for mobilization in the month of June in solidarity with anarchist, revolutionary and rebel individualities

For a Dangerous June
A text that sums up the ideas expressed during the meetings ‘With our heads held high

State repression is the most important part of the system of dominion and one of its most disgraceful expressions; it doesn’t surprise us that those who are struck most are historically those who don’t let themselves be recuperated by the system of power, i.e. anarchist, revolutionary and rebel individualities.

Transmissions in a Hostile Territory

In the spring of 2015 a group of anarchist and prison abolitionists worked together to experiment with a pirate radio station that broadcasted into a prison. The project lasted nine months before it was raided and shut down by a coalition of law enforcement. Transmissions in a Hostile Territory is a reflection on that project, how we did it and what we learned from the following legal case. The intention of the zine is to encourage creative engagement in the anti-prison struggle. Fire to prisons, until every cage is empty!

From contra info, translated by anonymous

Received on March 10th, 2017:
(These words arrived with a delay due to the restrictive communications of the Spanish extermination centers. On March 7th, 2017 Mónica and Francisco were finally released to Chile, where they were greeted with a great deal of media and repressive threats. Finally today, they have returned to the street with their dignity intact.)
