What began as a confrontation between prisoners from different regions of Alabama – namely, B’ham and Montgomery, with B’ham being the largest – escalated into two short riots against the pigs. After the prisoners squashed the beef among themselves without any violence, two pigs ran into C-dorm, which houses 114 prisoners and was informed that there was no problem and everything was under control.
One pig (Tate) tried to bogart his way through a crowd of prisoners and was immediately stabbed a number of times. After the two pigs ran out the dorm, one bloodied the warden, Carter Davenport, who has a reputation as an extremely sadistic, disrespectful, and nasty scumfuck fascist, who was recently removed from his post as warden at St. Clair maximum security prison for assaulting a prisoner, and reassigned as warden at Holman in 2015. He was stabbed after entering C-dorm like some kind of god.
In December 2010 the 11 anarchists investigated in operation Nottetempo were declared guilty of subversive association (art. 270) and other specific ‘offences’ by the Appeal Court of Assizes in Lecce.
After Mattia, Claudio and Niccolò were also released from house arrest a few days ago and are now free without restrictions.
Chiara is still under house arrest as her situation is different from that of her three comrades. A few months ago she was served with a Special Surveillance order implying compulsory residence, but this has been suspended and is to be enforced only when Chiara is released from house arrest. An appeal was made against the order and the court will soon decide about revoking, modifying or confirming ‘their’ Special Surveillance.
Warren Correctional Institution, not content with merely restricting Sean’s communications with the outside world, has now assigned a lieutenant to read through all printed materials sent to Sean.
Please take a minute to send Sean some reading material. That stack of zines in the bathroom? That one book you’ve had for years but will never read? All those fancy new publications you designed? Send them all! Let’s help Sean (and the fuckweasels who intercept his mail) something to pass the time.
Send reading material to:
Sean Swain #243-205

I was originally scheduled for a parole consideration hearing in December 2015, but for unknown reasons my parole hearing date has been rescheduled for February 23, 2016 at 8:00 a.m. in a public hearing at 301 S. Ripley St., Montgomery, AL 36130.
Anyone in the area can attend and speak on my behalf, and please keep those letters coming.
In addition to the letter campaign I think a phone campaign from now until February 22, 2016.

Well, I’m still alive. This is really awkward. I didn’t plan on this.
The current suspension of my communications started at the end of August. The fascists simply cut off all of my outgoing communication the equivalent to putting duct tape on my face.
This is part of a pattern. Fascists suspended my communications in January to stop me from producing video talking about my innocence in my criminal case. They shut down my communications again in May when I wrote a statement in opposition to the international crime of torture. No good deed goes unpunished.
I’m ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard, but I’m still swinging with all that I’ve got. I gave the state an ultimatum: reinstate my communications or I’ll refuse blood pressure meds – which will lead to heart attack, stroke, or aneurysm. The state hasn’t budged and neither have I. I’m now out of meds and facing a spike in blood pressure. If I die I hope everyone reading this holds the same people responsible for my death as I do.
Odds aren’t so good that I’m going to live through this no matter how it stacks up. My website is in a state of transition, my access to the radio show is essentially cut off, and it feels like I’ve been obliterated beyond prison fences.
I dropped the federal civil rights action. Fuck the hierarch courts. I’m now relying entirely on the potential of rebels, insurrectionists, and hacktivists to develop methods of direct action to drive this common enemy to its knees.

Between the end of November and the beginning of December, two ancient trees were cut down in the square outside the Our Lady of Remedies church at the behest of the Osasco-Sao Paulo municipal authorities.
And, in August 2015, the armed branches of government assassinated more than 20 people in one night in the regions of Osasco, Barueri, Carapicuiba and Itapevi. All the people who were assassinated came from the favelas and the barrios away from the center of these fascist states.
In response to these assassinations, we have brought our fire to one of the veins that keeps this oppressive system alive. Even though it will not bring back the trees that resisted the concrete of this unhealthy civilization nor will it bring back the lives of the people who became victims of genocide caused by these Nazis, we claim full responsibility for the arson attack against the Bradesco bank branch located at number 924 São José avenue in Osasco, Sao Paulo that took place at dawn on December 16th.

Just as a worm struggles in resistance against the foot that crushes it so do we anarchists struggle and fight for the total destruction of a world system of coercive authority and domination in all of its manifestations and that wants to crush our spirits of resistance.
Kuwasi Balagoon, revolutionary extraordinaire and unrepentant anarchist within the Black Liberation Army, fell at the hands of the state of New York, USA in December 1986 through medical neglect.
In memory of this New Afrikan anarchist soldier i take the initiative to compose my contribution to the strategy of total annihilation of the state and its institutions by which the state exercises its power.
