From You Caring

Kevin Chianella received a 2 year prison sentence for his participation in the G20 protests in Toronto in 2010. Chianella, 18 at the time, got a heftier sentence because he attacked a cop car with a canvas bag full of rocks. He is also presumed to have fueled and sustained a fire set on another cop car. Chianella, from Queens, was supported in court by his family, among them, his 90-year-old grandmother.

Now, we are nearing Kevin’s release. Not only will Kevin face the same financial hardships many face once released from prison, but he also owes friends and family members who took on significant financial burdens throughout his trial and imprisonment.

Marius Mason Transferred to the SHU! Please Write Him a Letter!

From Support Marius Mason:

On June 16th, we received notification from Marius that he has been transferred to the SHU—or Special Housing Unit, also known as solitary confinement—for, we believe, 30 days as a result of an alleged violation of prison disciplinary rules. We still do not know the basis of these allegations, but we believe they involve a violation of his right to counsel. At this point, Marius does not have all of his property in the SHU, and his normal phone privileges and all e-mail privileges have been suspended. Marius’s lawyer, Moira Meltzer-Cohen, has not yet received the incident report, but based on what she has has heard from prison officials, she believes the disciplinary action to be unjust.

Marius is currently in good spirits, but solitary confinement is a terrible and dispiriting form of punishment. Marius can still send and receive letters, so please show your support and solidarity by dropping him a line!

NATALY CASANOVA, JUAN FLORES & GUILLERMO DURAN

Written statement found in between the barricades and Molotov cocktails at the AustralUniversity of Chile (UACH), around noon on Wednesday May 13th, 2015:

“It is the time to act in our everyday life with our affine ones, for the destruction of the industrial prison complex and any social attempt to reform that disgusting system of death. Solidarity must never be an empty phrase, but an everyday action confronting power and supporting those who are sequestered in this war to the death.” Mauricio Morales.

Support Funds Needed for Anarchist Facing Federal Trial!

Eric G. King, a 28-year-old vegan anarchist, was arrested and charged with an attempted firebombing of a government official’s office in Kansas City, MO in September 2014. Eric is being charged with throwing a hammer through a window of the building, followed by two lit Molotov cocktails.
